BROOKLYN - Local elected officials are outraged after another anti-Semitic hate crime in Brooklyn targeted a Marine Park family yesterday.

According to Councilman Lew Fidler (D-Brooklyn), the latest act of vandalism took place on Coleman Street near Avenue R where the words "God don't like Jews" was painted across the windshield of the family's vehicle.

Fidler, other representatives in the borough and two community organizations released a collective statement saying, "We are joining together today to immediately and indignantly condemn this act of hatred and vandalism. Marine Park is a neighborhood where people of all faiths have lived side by side, and amicably and peacefully."

The latest incident is the sixth act of hate vandalism in Brooklyn this month.
