Anti-Hamas Billboard Taken Down in New Jersey After Over 100 Police Complaints

An anti-Hamas billboard put up by a Jewish organization in New Jersey has been taken down after police received more than 100 complaints.

“Oh, don’t be naive. Hamas would chop your head off too,” the sign read on Route 80 in Bergen County.

“This anti-Hamas billboard on Route 80 in Bogota borough resulted in more than 100 calls to police before it was taken down by organizers,” Shlomo Schorr, associate director of the New Jersey office of Agudath Israel of America said.

The billboard was reportedly put up by the organization JewBelong following the Hamas attacks in Israel.

According to the group’s website, they are “supporting joyous Judaism and confronting antisemitism” with their “signature pink and white billboards, billboard trucks, website, and strong social media presence.”

“Our police department works closely with county, state and federal agencies to ensure the safety of our community,” the Bogota police department said on Facebook. “There have been no threats to our community and we are investigating the matter to ensure all community members remain safe.”

From Breitbart:

JewBelong reportedly has similar billboards around the country, with one in California recently being vandalized, the JWeekly reported.

According to the Jewish news outlet, the message “Gaza is a concentration camp. Never again. Support Al Aqsa Flood,” along with a hammer and sickle was scrawled onto a JewBelong board in Berkeley.

The graffiti was in reference to Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, Hamas’s name for the October 7 massacre they carried out on Israeli citizens, killing over 1,300.
