Omaha, NE – Some residents of Omaha’s Leawood West neighborhood reported finding antisemitic flyers in their driveways over the weekend.
The incident is part of a nationwide uptick in antisemitic flyer distributions, according to David Goldenberg, the Midwest regional director for the Anti-Defamation League.
The Leawood West neighborhood, which is located northeast of the intersection of 132nd and Pacific Streets, is near the Jewish Community Center of Omaha, two synagogues and the American Muslim Institute’s mosque.
One of the flyers contained references to the Goyim Defense League, which the Anti-Defamation League describes as a loosely-organized group based out of California that spreads antisemitic and racist messages online and through flyer distributions.
One flyer distributed in Omaha included the message: “Every single aspect of mass immigration is Jewish.”
At the bottom of the flyer it stated: “these flyers were distributed randomly without malicious intent.”
Another flyer was addressed to “White Americans” and encouraged them to “take a stand with your people, for the future of everything our ancestors built.”
