Mayor: Israeli flag stolen from outside Hoboken City Hall
An Israeli flag was stolen from outside Hoboken City Hall, according to the city’s mayor.
Mayor Ravi Bhalla says that the theft happened Friday night. The flag was at half-staff following the start of the war between Israel and Hamas.
"I want to make it unequivocally clear that we will not tolerate such behavior in our community. Hoboken is a diverse city that has always stood for fairness and inclusivity…” the mayor wrote in a statement.
Bhalla says that antisemitism or any other form of hatred or bigotry “has no place in our city.”
