There has been a rash of attacks on Jews in NYC, by African Americans. What’s that you say? You haven’t heard this? That is because it is not being reported by most mainstream media outlets because it does not fit their liberal narrative — that blacks and Jews in NYC live in perfect harmony, and all vote democratic!
However, the truth is, that New York City is increasing its police presence in some Brooklyn neighborhoods with large Jewish populations after a series of anti-Semitic attacks which occurred during the Hanukkah holiday, the latest of which episode happened the morning of Friday, Dec. 27.
Besides making officers more visible in Borough Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg, police will boost visits to houses of worship and some other places, Mayor DeBlasio said in a tweet.
“Anti-Semitism is an attack on the values of our city — and we will confront it head-on,” the mayor wrote.
Around the city, police have gotten at least five reports this week of attacks that were seemingly driven by anti-Jewish bias.
The latest happened around 12:40 a.m. Friday, when a woman slapped three other women in the face and head, after encountering them on a Crown Heights corner, police said. The victims, who range in age from 22 to 31, suffered minor pain, police said.
Tiffany Harris, 30, was arrested on a hate-crime harassment charge.
She was awaiting arraignment Friday morning. It wasn’t clear whether she had a lawyer who could comment on the charges, and no working telephone number for Harris could immediately be found.
On Monday, a Miami man was charged with hate-crime assault after police said he made an anti-Semitic remark and attacked a man in midtown Manhattan. The 65-year-old victim was punched and kicked, suffering cuts, police said.
He had been wearing a yarmulke, according to former state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who has founded a group dedicated to combating anti-Semitism.
Steven Jorge, 28, is being held without bail, and a judge ordered a psychiatric exam for him, court records show.
The New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is also investigating three other episodes that may have been motivated by anti-Semitism.
“The attacks against Jews are out of control, and we must have a concrete strategy to address the rise of these attacks,” said Dov Hikind, founder of Americans Against Antisemitism.
“It seems like it’s open season on Jews in New York City,” said Councilmember Chaim Deutsch.
The latest wave shows some marked differences with past manifestations of anti-Semitism in the city, primarily in that no one can figure out precisely what’s causing it. “If we could figure out why it was happening, it would be easier to curb it,” said Mark Molinari, the inspector in charge of the NYPD’s hate crimes unit. “It’s gratuitous violence,” said David Pollack, a rabbi and director of public policy and security for New York’s Jewish Community Relations Council. “That’s what distinguishes this from anything else we’ve had in the past: People are physically attacking identifiably Orthodox Jews for no apparent reason.”
However, the attacks have been predominantly perpetrated by African Americans, which is a connection that the mainstream media has failed to report, because it does not fit with their PC agenda, and perhaps that’s one of the reasons that so many people want to avert their eyes from what’s happening in places like Crown Heights.
