MOUNT LAUREL – State Sen. Troy Singleton Monday spoke out against an anti-Semitic act a Mount Laurel over the past weekend.
Police are investigating the discovery of a sticker Sunday with a swastika at the Adath Emanu-El Synagogue, according to the Cherry Hill Courier-Post. A message with the swastika read: “We are everywhere.”
“Bigotry in any form is a scourge on our community and must be weeded out,” Singleton said on his Facebook page. “To the coward or cowards who put swastika stickers in the parking lot of Adath Emanuel Synagogue in Mount Laurel this weekend, your hatred will not win.

“In fact, this act of predjudice and stupidity only strengthens those of all faiths who stand united against such racist acts,” Singleton continued.
Mount Laurel Mayor Stephen Steglik called the incident “disgusting” and said in the end there will be more people who will denounce the act that condone it.
“There’s no other word for it, especially as our neighbors and friends and families are wrapping up the holiday season for Hanukkah,” Steglik told the Courier-Post.
Singleton called on the public’s help in the investigation.
“I beg anyone who saw this action or know of who perpetrated it to contact local law enforcement immediately,” the senator said. “Our community is better and stronger when we look out for one another. Let’s show all who seek to tear us apart that hate truly has no home in Burlington County.”
