Antisemitic “Jews did 9/11” banner over Portland highway

Am image has emerged on social media of a huge antisemitic banner overhanging a Portland highway.

The banner, which says “Jews did 9/11”, was uploaded onto Reddit by Michael Orranti.

Orranti spotted the banner on Sunday evening.

According to the Definition of Antisemitism, Antisemitism “frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong””. The accusation that Jews were responsible for 9/11 is an obvious example of this, but also mirrors long-standing antisemitic canards of Jewish conspiracies manipulating world events.

The sign had been taken down by the time local authorities went to investigate.
