Autistic Jewish Teen is Attacked, Has Swastika Carved on his Back at Las Vegas High School

I’m thinking I should make a new category called “SATAN RAGING.” It will get worse by the day!


An autistic Jewish teen had a swastika carved on his back in a heartless anti-Semitic assault at his Las Vegas high school — with the FBI now prepared to jump into the unsolved case.

The teen’s distraught mother alerted authorities after her 17-year-old nonverbal son returned home from Clark High School on March 9 with the hate symbol etched on his back, NBC News reported Saturday. 

The mom, who said her son’s service dog equipment bag was also tampered with, has pulled her son from the school.

But because the school doesn’t have surveillance cameras in classrooms, locker rooms and bathrooms, the cruel culprits remain unnamed — and unpunished. 

“My son is the only student I know who wears a Kippah at the school,” the mother told last week, referring to a type of yamulka traditionally worn by Jewish men and boys.

The mother and her son have not been identified. 

Meanwhile, with the case unsolved nearly two months later, the FBI said it was ready to join the probe.

“We are aware of the incident and are in regular contact with local authorities,” the agency said in a statement. “If during the local investigation, information comes to light of a potential federal civil rights violation, the FBI is prepared to investigate.”

The anti-Semitic assault sparked outrage from the Israeli-American Council, which called it “inhumane.”

A 17-year-old autistic Jewish student at Clark High School in Las Vegas came home with a swastika carved on his back on March 9, prompting his mother to pull him from classes.

The school said it would “not tolerate discriminatory behavior.”

“The Israeli-American Council was appalled to learn that a Jewish teen may have been targeted in such an inhumane anti-Semitic attack,” the council’s co-founder and CEO, Shoham Nicolet, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We urge authorities to investigate this incident to the fullest.”

In a statement to the Review-Journal, the Clark County School District denounced the attack.

“We will not tolerate discriminatory behavior that contradicts an inclusive community and impacts student safety and well-being,” the statement said. “If anyone has any additional information related to this case, we urge them to contact school police immediately.” source

So, was this child harmed for being autistic or being Jewish? Probably both. SICK SICK SICK.

    This is heartbreaking and those who did this need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. So sad.

    Without any doubt, this is a hate crime! I hate to be cynical, but I wonder if those bullies who did this will ever be found or prosecuted. Anti-Semitism is rising its Satanic head again. Sign of the times. I am saddened for this young man and his mother. Yet, God can do anything and we can pray that those responsible for this wicked deed will be brought to justice.
