NYPD: 94% Increase in Anti-Semitic Incidents in NYC

The NYPD says it has seen a 55 percent increase in hate crimes compared to the same time last year. That includes a 94 percent surge in anti-Semitic incidents.

“I understand against a backdrop of growing numbers of anti-Semitic incidents all over this country and all over this world, which is a pattern that has to be addressed profoundly. We’re trying to do it here in this city,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “But the backdrop is worrisome because you saw what happened with the desecration of the cemetery the other day. This is becoming more widespread, and I’ve been very clear about, an atmosphere of hate has been fostered in recent months in America, and we have to stop it.”

City officials say police officers are visiting Jewish centers more frequently, and the Police Department is working with the FBI to help put a stop to the trend.

    this is all a result of the momzer in chief that we “think” we got rid of ….but did we?

    What frightens me the most is how many people in our own community insist on making excuses and trying to explain away what’s happening.

    This increase in anti-Semitic attacks is real. This is not someone ‘making a stink.’ The people in these hate groups actually want to do us harm. The threats and vandalism are only their opening act.

    G-d forbid that our dismissive attitude and complacency allows an attack in the US to happen like has happened in France.

    Yes – we must trust in Hashem. However, we are also required to do our work.

    If Israel gives away land that Hashem helped them win in a miraculous way during the June 1967 SIX day war this will put the lives of Jews all over the world in danger.
