After a beautiful and wonderful Shabbos, about which I hope to write more later, we were dismayed to discover scribbles all over the wall when you first walk into our building. Most of the scribbles were poorly drawn swastikas, and as our apartment is the very first one when you come into the building, the first thing we see when we open our door is a wall full of them. Along with the swastikas, someone poured oil all over the floor, which means most of it is right outside my door; already, one friend didn't notice it, slipped, and while - thank God - she didn't fall, she did get oil on her comfy new shoe leaving a large black mark. The superintendent came a few minutes ago to clean it up, after I called him about an hour earlier; he's an Armenian, and was quite disgusted.
Our building has 12 units and you have to either have a key or be let into the building; 6 of the units are Orthodox Jews, one a nice lady in her 80's, one a nice Latino family, and one a mean-seeming black lady with her cute 3-year old granddaughter. There's also a strange couple upstairs who prefer collecting garbage over anything else, one unit I don't know who lives in, and one Arab family with kids that are often completely crazy - including once leaving papers with nasty drawings and the words KILL KILL all over them, and another time banging on my door with my (then-pregnant) wife home alone and threatening to stab her.
The scribbles look like they were done by kids, meaning the most obvious culprits are our Arab neighbors - kids who the super can't stand both because he's Armenian and because of the damage they do. Whether it was them or someone else, though, it's beyond sickening.
What a bunch of sick bastards.
EDIT: I should have noticed this earlier. All the scribbles and swastikas were at heights between my thighs and my chest, which means: Kids. Pretty little kids, too...
I took a picture of the wall, and another of the oil. I'm still debating what to do about this; my brother suggested I ask a certain person tomorrow, which makes sense to me. Thank you all for your suggestions and support. Meanwhile, I left a message for our landlord about it, and I'm sure the super will inform him tomorrow as well.
