CALIFORNIA (Israel Hayom) – A number of residents of Beverly Hills discovered on Sunday morning that their yards had been littered with antisemitic fliers that link the coronavirus pandemic to a “Jewish agenda.”
Local police noted that at approximately 6 a.m. on Nov. 28, a call came in from a Beverly Hills man who reported having found a flyer containing the blood libel in his front yard.
The event, which occurred on the date Jews all over the world were preparing to light the first candle in celebration of Hanukkah, set of warning bells, and the Beverly Hills police decided to deploy additional personnel.
According to the police, the fliers had been distributed in plastic bags that were weighted down with rice, so they wouldn’t be blown away. They were found at several dozen homes.
Police said that a team of officers and city workers had canvassed the area and collected all the fliers found there, and said that they were trying to identify the parties responsible for the “disturbing event,” which is being investigated as a hate crime.
The flyer is titled “Every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish,” and warns that anyone who took a stance against lockdown protests was a “Shabbos goy carrying out the will of the Jews.”
