A building in Washington was vandalized with graffiti messages that read “Death to Israel” and “Glory 2 the Martyrs,” among other anti-Semitic messages, the Israeli embassy in the United States said.
“In our backyard: ‘Death to Israel’ and ‘Glory to our Martyrs,’ among other violent anti-Semitic graffiti spotted in Washington, DC. #WhereIsTheOutrage,” the embassy said in an X post on Saturday.
The video showed a series of graffiti messages that read “Free Gaza” and “F–k Israel.”
Another graffiti message, written in neon, read: “Gaza will win.”

The anti-Semitic graffiti messages were spotted over the weekend as thousands of people descended on Washington to protest and demonstrate Saturday afternoon, calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war and an end to US aid to Israel.
Brian Becker, the executive director of the Answer Coalition, an anti-war organization, argued that “it is not anti-Semitism to disagree with Israel’s policy.”
“We have Muslims, we have Christians, we have Jews. We have people from all walks of life, all faiths coming together against what we see as a criminal war against the people of Gaza. It is not anti-Semitism to disagree with Israel’s policy,” Becker he told FOX 5. “There should definitely be a ceasefire. Thousands of people, half of them children, have died in Gaza in recent weeks.”
