NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) There was shock and outrage in Brooklyn on Friday after several cars were torched and numerous examples of anti-Semitic vandalism took place in Midwood.
The incident was discovered at around 5 a.m., when residents said they awoke to see cars burning.
At least four cars were set ablaze and dozens of pieces of anti-Semitic graffiti were plastered along benches. The cars were damaged and the benches vandalized along Ocean Parkway between Avenues I and J. Among the vandalism: KKK scrawled nearby, as well as numerous swastikas.
Exclusive video, obtained by CBS 2s Derricke Dennis on Friday night, shows the arson spree. Neighbor Solomon Israel took the video and said a closer look shows a clear sign of arson.
On the middle car that was burning, I saw a red empty can of gas, which obviously made it very obvious that it was a fire lit on purpose, Israel said.
People are nervous, people are concerned, Assemblyman Dov Hikind said. The police are putting extra manpower into the community at synagogues and all over.
Not a way to wake up on Friday morning going into the Sabbath, definitely not, said Midwood resident Sherry Tawil.
The incident occurred on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, when Hitlers Nazis launched a pogrom against Jews in Germany and Austria.
Im used to swastikas, but three cars destroyed is a whole new dimension, said Hikind. Three cars completely destroyed as if someone had dropped the bomb on them is just a real tragedy.

Time for the Jews to start forming Militias to protect themselves.
And it would be a good time for them to wake up and see that alligning themselves with the left isnt a good thing. Hating Jews is a hallmark for Liberals.
Let these SOBs know they had better stay away.
obama’s people did it. Either muslimes or blacks.
And maybe on high holy days, Christians can help fill in the gaps while the Jews go to worship.
We are all in this thing together......Time to lock arms and stand united
KKK? Really? Democrat operatives resort to extreme measures to remind Jews they had better stay on the plantation . . . or, rather, in the Ghetto, in the wake of GOP winning district vacated by Wiener.
