The owner of a Jewish deli in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has found anti-Semitic messages stuck to their door for the second time in two weeks, according to a report in The Jewish Press.

Mailing labels covered with anti-Semitic messages were posted on the door of Nosh Deli on Saturday, according to local media. On Sunday, labels were stuck not only on the door of the restaurant, but also across a full block of the city, and on parking meters and street lights, The Jewish Press reported.

At the end of January, a label with the message “To the Kikes who should die" was stuck on the front door of the establishment. Another label read “To the Kikes who gave me a black eye.” This was the first time her store was targeted, owner Alisa Turtletaub told KOB Eyewitness News 4 in Albuquerque.  

“People are just disgusted,” The Jewish Press cited Turtletaub as saying. “They’re disgusted that this is happening.” “Don’t hide behind a postal sticker,” she said. “If you have such a problem, then show your face.”

The FBI is investigating both incidents, and a hot line has been set up, according to the report.

Susan Seligman, the New Mexico Anti-Defamation League’s regional director, said it was the first reported anti-Semitic threat in New Mexico in the last couple of years, though white power prison gangs were active 15 to 20 years ago.
