"I am appalled by the reports of a swastika and the message 'Kill All Jews' found scrawled on the walls of Brooklyn Tech High School.
"This is New York, and we have absolutely zero tolerance for such acts of intolerance and bigotry. When you attack one of us, you attack all of us, and we will stand united with the Jewish community to condemn these illegal acts and eradicate this cancer of hate.
"I am directing the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to assist the NYPD in their investigation to ensure the person responsible for this vile act is held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance are repugnant to New York values. We will fight back every time they rear their ugly head, and we will win because we are right and we know diversity is and always will be our greatest strength."
