Pashkevil of the century

(Click to enlarge)

This despicable anti-Dweck piece of trash was spotted today in Crown Heights. "Mesirah" loosely translates as "snitching out a Jew to the police" and in the manner of mob bosses everywhere, the author of this poster is equating a snitch with a rat and urging his community to do [insert your own ominous looking wink] "something."

Its worth adding that I believe RMF ruled that there's no mesirah in America because the police here don't have an anti-Jewish agenda. As I understand it, the loose translation cited above is halachicaly incorrect. Handing someone over to a professional police department for a lawful trial isn't mesirah.
