Antisemites trespassed and vandalized the office of journalist Bari Weiss’ outlet, The Free Press, with slogans reading “F*ck Jews” and “F*ck Israel,” amid a rise in antisemitism across the U.S.
The antisemitic messages appeared to be spray painted on the office’s walls in large, black letters, according to images posted by Weiss in a Sunday night tweet. The Jewish journalist and editor said this action would not intimidate her or her staff.
“This was scrawled outside of our offices this week,” she wrote. “If the antisemites who did this think it will intimidate me and the journalists of @TheFP, they don’t know me, they don’t know us, and they have no idea what we stand for.”
This was scrawled outside of our offices this week.

Antisemitism has surged across the globe since Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israel and killed, tortured, kidnapped and raped Israeli citizens in a relentless Oct. 7 attack. Pro-Palestinian protesters have protested in support of the Gaza Strip and uttered antisemitic chants on many occasions. (RELATED: Pro-Palestine Demonstrators Freak Out When Asked To Denounce Hamas)
A rally in New York City’s Times Square consisted of hundreds of protesters blaming the deadly attack on Israel and called for the liberation of Palestine. Some protesters celebrated the attack and slaughter of innocent Israeli citizens and even presented swastikas.
Democratic New York Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman were the only two members of the far-left congressional group, “The Squad,” to publicly condemn the rally.
Students on college campuses across the U.S. have held demonstrations in favor of Palestine. Many have used slogans and imagery to explicitly call for violent acts against Israel and Jewish people, even as at least 1,400 Israelis have been brutally slaughtered at the hands of Hamas.
Colleges and universities have allowed pro-Palestinian protests to take place on their campuses despite the potential impact it could have on its Jewish students. Over 30 student groups at Harvard University wrote a joint letter to the school’s administration in support of Palestine, causing over seventy faculty members to call on the university’s president to condemn the “intimidation” of the Palestinian protesters.
Harvard President Claudine Gay said the pro-Palestinian student groups do not represent the views of the university in an October 10 statement. Gay’s statement did not offer any opposition or condemnation of the pro-Palestinian views spreading across the Ivy League campus.
A video from Oct. 9 showed pro-Palestinian protesters chanting “gas the Jews” and “f*ck Israel” outside of the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
Hamas reportedly slaughtered at least 40 babies, some of whom were decapitated, and burned Israeli citizens alive. The terrorists have taken a total of 222 individuals into hostage and have threatened to execute Israeli hostages on live broadcast if Israel continues to launch airstrikes into the Gaza Strip.
