NEW JERSEY (WABC) -- The conflict in the Middle East may have inspired a hate crime against a Jewish family from New Jersey.
Eric Organ and his family say they were the targets of an ugly anti-Semitic attack while vacationing in Florida.
It happened Tuesday as the family was walking in Bal Harbour.
Four people in an SUV rolled down their windows and began shouting anti-Semitic remarks and then threw garbage at the family.
"Four males, probably in their early 20s starting to scream at us through the window -- you know 'free Palestine, f*** the Jews -- die Jew'," Organ said.
A driver who witnessed the attack pulled out a gun and chased the SUV as it sped off.
The family filed a police report.
Authorities are still trying to identify the suspects.
