[An ad on New York City Assembyman Dov Hikind’s website]
Business Insider reports that Democratic New York City Assemblyman Dov Hikind is to start an ad campaign warning New Yorkers that they might be living next to a Nazi.
‘According to an announcement posted on his site Tuesday, Hikind’s ads asking, “Would you be a Nazi’s neighbor?” will be appearing in newspapers and bus stops around New York starting Wednesday [today]. The announcement describes the ads as “part of Hikind’s campaign to rid the United States once and for all of illegal Nazi war criminals.” Hikind, who represents a district in Brooklyn with a large Orthodox Jewish population said the campaign was inspired by the case of a former Nazi guard who lives in Queens.
“Jakiw Palij, an ex-Nazi slave-labor camp guard, continues to live comfortably in Jackson Heights, N.Y., because the United States has, thus far, found it difficult to get rid of him,” Hikind said in a statement accompanying the announcement about the ads.’
