Antisemitic Attacks in New York Are at Highest Level in Decades
Last year there were 51 assaults across the state, a new high since the Anti-Defamation League began compiling such data in 1979.
Orthodox Jews assaulted on busy streets in Midtown Manhattan and in quiet neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Swastikas drawn on a Long Island home and spray painted onto Wall Street’s Charging Bull statue. A bomb threat against a Jewish community center in Albany, and fliers in Dutchess County that warned residents, “Jews want to take your guns.”
The number of antisemitic incidents in New York increased by 24 percent last year to the highest level in decades, including a surge in the number of assaults, as well as both criminal and noncriminal incidents targeting Jews, according to an annual report released on Tuesday by the Anti-Defamation League.
The group said it counted 416 antisemitic incidents across the state, including 51 assaults, the most physical attacks it has recorded since it began compiling such data in 1979. The report was based on information collected from local law enforcement agencies and Jewish community leaders and individuals.
The surge was part of a nationwide trend that saw 2,717 antisemitic incidents across the United States, including 88 assaults, an increase of 167 percent from the year before.
The report focused on several high-profile incidents that took place during or shortly after Israel’s conflict with Hamas militants in Gaza last May, which killed at least 230 Palestinians and 12 Israelis.
Well over half the 51 assaults recorded in New York took place in Brooklyn, where 34 antisemitic attacks were recorded last year, most of them against people wearing traditional religious garb that identified them as Orthodox Jews, such as skullcaps, black suits or long beards and sidelocks.
So the majority of antisemitic attacks occurred in Democrat majority city, in a Democrat majority state, with a Democrat majority government and Democrat governor, under a Democrat president.
But Trump was orange Hitler and was going to wipe out the Jews!!!
Jews, especially conservative and orthodox Jews need to get out of the Blue places, buy and learn to use the tools for self defense.
