A friend of mine just sent me this picture, taken of the Hugo Boss store in Manhattan on the corner of 14th St and 10th Ave:

That's right, a YELLOW "Juda" star.

In 2008.

Spotted the day after the 70th anniversary of Kristalnacht.

Quick! Someone tell me that anti-Judaism is dead!

I'm sure whatever clown did this will blame the "Israeli occupation" and say they're not really against "Jews" just "Israel" but we all know by now that's the same thing. Or some Jewish apologist will try to explain how complicated the situation is in the Middle East and how the United States needs a more "even-handed" approach to the conflict. Well that's how even-handed the other side is...

WHERE is the outrage???

Wow.. this is awful. Did your friend go into the store and ask for an explanation. I'm surprised I hadn't heard about this! What a horrible, nasty thing to do!

No word yet from the store. I meant to call them today but I couldn't find the number yet...

I have looked for any mention of this in the news and I've come up with nada

I'd really like to know if this was intentional on their part or just some sick type of graffiti, or a symbolic "fuck you" meant to remind people of their role in WWII
