The “Politics” of Anti-Semitism in NYC

Published

on

If you’re a Jewish resident in New York City, you don’t have to search through the New York Times or the local MSM to learn about the skyrocketing hate crimes against your fellow Jews, you live it. For those of us with a knowledge of history, this is quite a scary situation. If we can believe the figures from the Left leaning ADL, over 59 % of hate crimes in the city were against Jews who barely make up only 19% of the population. By the end of the year, these issues of violence will have more than doubled from those of last year. Sounds like Paris or London. Sadly it’s in our own backyard.

And to be perfectly honest, most of these biased, hateful criminal acts were perpetrated by blacks…..who are usually reported as the vulnerable victims of hate carried out by “White Supremacists.” In our town, it’s they who are the hateful attackers and the Jews, the hapless victims. Most recently, Avraham Gopin a 63 year old New York rabbi was assaulted in broad daylight by a black assailant who threw a massive brick at him, punched him 25 times, leaving Gopin with missing teeth and a battered body. The police are searching for a 6’2″ male with a white “T” shirt, black sneakers and black shorts. The race….obviously unknown. Last month, a Jewish man who, while walking home from synagogue, casually said “Hello” to a black man who promptly punched and choked him. These stories are endless and growing. But to our inept, intolerable mayor, “White Supremacy” is to blame for the mounting attacks against Jews in the city. “I think it’s really clear…the forces of white supremacy (WS) have been unleashed. ” Tell that to his buddies, Congresswomen Rashid Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and AOC who are planting the seeds of Jew hate throughout the land.

Let’s face it, Jews are an accepting bunch. They are hugely liberal, sympathize and align themselves with other minorities and tend to ignore the mounting hatred against their own people. They play the game of “willingly not knowing.” Will it take the re-awakening of a militant, self defense organization such as the famed Jewish Defense League to come to the defense of our people? New York City was once the cradle of the Jewish community in this country. We settled here from Europe and other places where we were not welcome and hated. As we prospered, so did the City and its growing black population. Our business people gave them jobs, our teachers taught them, our doctors healed them. And now we are the targets of their hatred against Jews. We must acknowledge that the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jeremiah Wright among many other African American Jew haters have done their job. And we Jews have the responsibility to wake up to the reality and come to the inevitable conclusion that the black community is no longer, if they ever were, on our side. Tough to do, but it’s got to be done.
