A 15-year-old from Staten Island was charged with a hate crime for writing “death for Jewish religion” in Arabic at a school in the New York borough.

The teen was charged on Tuesday with criminal mischief as a hate crime and for making graffiti, and will be tried as a juvenile, WABC-Ch. 7 reported.

The student allegedly wrote the message in Arabic, using blue ink, on a poster at Dreyfus Intermediate School, a junior high also known as I.S. 49, where it was noticed by a school safety agent who could read Arabic.
