Iconic New York City Jewish deli vandalized with swastika

An iconic Jewish deli in New York City that has publicly supported Israel after the terror attacks by Hamas was vandalized with a swastika.

The vandals targeted a 2nd Ave Deli location in the Upper East Side on the corner of 1st Avenue and 75th Street, FOX 5 New York reported.

Since the October 7 terror attacks on Israel, the deli has posted several pro-Israel messages on its Instagram page. 

"We Stand with Israel. We stand against the clear evil that has once again shown itself today," one post read.

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Saturday warned of a spike in domestic threats linked to Israel's war against Hamas terrorists.

"History has been witness to antisemitic and other forms of violent extremism for far too long. Whether that be from foreign terrorist organizations, or those inspired by them, or domestic violent extremists motivated by their own racial animus, the targeting of a community because of their faith is completely unacceptable," Wray said. "We remain committed to continue confronting those threats—both here in the United States and overseas."
