TWO YEARS AGO, some idiot or idiots carved a 15-foot swastika in the snow in a Clifton park. The people I talked with at the time, while concerned, viewed it as nothing more than a prank.

This month, anti-Semitic signs and fliers were posted in Passaic. Three men have been arrested. Two are from Clifton, one from Lincoln Park.

Further south in Mercer County, a football-field-sized swastika was cut into a cornfield. The timing around the Jewish Holy Days seems more than coincidental. more.
