Florida Graffiti Claims Jews Pushing War with Russia

A sign that reads “Dear Jews, stop pushing war with Russia!” written in large handwriting was put up in Miami, Florida this was weekend, according to a tweet by StopAntisemitism last week. 

The sign doesn’t offer any explanation for how Jews are purportedly pushing for war with Russia, but the accusation that Jews are either behind the Russia-Ukraine war or pushing for the war’s escalation is not new.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) wrote on its website back in March of 2022 that since the war started in February, “extremists and antisemites across the ideological spectrum have used the war as fodder for promoting antisemitic conspiracy theories.” 

Furthermore, the canard that Jews have a disproportionate amount of power that they use to manipulate world events, particularly in ways that are pernicious or destructive towards gentiles, is both well-known and quite old as an antisemitic trope.

These accusations have always proven to be baseless attempts to galvanize antipathy toward Jewish people. Nothing about the claim that the sign makes is new.
