  • 5 People Stabbed At Hanukkah Celebration At Rabbis Home

    Apparently the latest in a string of attacks on New York Jews this last week. The suspect is a tall black male (much of the violence against Jews in NY seems to be by african Americans)


    ​A man walked into a rabbi's home during a Hanukkah celebration in a New York suburb Saturday nightand began stabbing people, witnesses say. Five victims were taken to nearby hospitals, according to police.

    The Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council for the Hudson Valley Region saidin a tweet that victims inside the Monsey residence were Hasidic Jews. Two people are in critical condition, co-founder of the council, Yossi Gestetner,told CNN.
    The attacker pulled out a knife that was "almost like a broomstick," said Aron Kohn,who attended the Hanukkah celebration.
    Kohn said there were at least 100 people in the home at that time, as the rabbi was "lighting the candle" on the seventh night of Hanukkah.

    ​Kohn added that the suspect tried to run into a nearby synagogue, but someone closed the doors.
    Rockland County -- where the stabbing took place -- has the largest Jewish population per capita of any US county, according to New York state. More than 30% of its residents are Jewish.
    Officials are still working an active crime scene, Ramapo Police Chief Brad Weidel said in a news conference.
    He said a suspect, described as a tall black man, was apprehended by police. A latest in a string of attacks

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the stabbing was "the latest in a string of attacks against members of the Jewish community in New York this week."
    "Let me be clear: anti-Semitism and bigotry of any kind are repugnant to our values of inclusion and diversity and we have absolutely zero tolerance for such acts of hate," the governor said in a statement.
    He directed the state's Hate Crime Task Force to investigate the incident. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of New York also said they were heading to the scene to learn more and coordinate with law enforcement.

    ​​​​​​
    ​And last week, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city's police department would be boosting its number of patrols after at least eight possible anti-Semitic incidents in a week.
    Police will increase visits to houses of worship and 'other critical areas in the community," he said.
    In a statement to CNN, Israel's President Reuven (Ruvi) Rivlin expressed being "shocked and outraged" by the stabbing.
    "We are praying for the rapid recovery of those injured. The rise of anti-Semitism is not just a Jewish problem, and certainly not just the State of Israel's problem. We must work together to confront this evil, which is raising its head again and is a genuine threat around the world," the statement said.
    In response to the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would work with local authorities to deal with incidents of anti-Semitism.
    "Israel condemns in every sense the latest anti-Semitic incidents and the brutal attack in the middle of Hanukkah at the rabbi's house in Monsey, New York. We send wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured," he said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. "We will work together in every way with the local authorities in order to help eliminate this phenomena. We offer our help to all countries." 'We cannot overstate the fear people are feeling'

    As authorities began investigating the scene of the stabbings, officials began sharing messages of solidarity and resilience.
    New York Attorney General Letitia James said there was "zero tolerance for acts of hate of any kind and we will continue to monitor this horrific situation."
    "I stand with the Jewish community tonight and every night," James said in a tweet.
    After Saturday's stabbing, de Blasio said "many Jewish families in our city have close ties to Monsey. We cannot overstate the fear people are feeling right now."

    ​"We will NOT allow this to become the new normal," de Blasio tweeted. "We'll use every tool we have to stop these attacks once and for all. The NYPD has deployed a visible and growing presence around Jewish houses of worship on the streets in communities like Williamsburg, Crown Heights and Boro Park."
    The ADL's CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said it was "heart-wrenching to see the holiday of Hanukkah violated yet again" following last week's "hateful assaults."​​​​​​

    "We are outraged because the answer is clear: the Jewish community NEEDS greater protection," Greenblatt tweeted.
    "Whether worshiping in synagogue, shopping in the supermarket or celebrating at home, Jews should be safe from violence. We need authorities to provide increased protection NOW and ensure that the full force of the law is brought down on those who perpetrate such horrific crimes," Greenblatt said.

          Well yes. A group of people who ~90% support democrats are obviously influenced by the rhetoric of the sworn enemy of the democrats. That's how the logic goes.

            They had his car description and tag number.

            So far during Hanukkah, eight anti-Semitic attacks have been reported in New York City.

              Story would obviously be much bigger and last longer were it a white nationalist. Black perp means report it and move on to the next story.

                Nah, the story gets framed differently. The story becomes not about the specific crime, it becomes about the number of anti-Semitic crimes. It becomes about overall tone, and about the victims, and people blame the tone on the president. That's the frame. The details of the perpetrators get glossed over as unimportant.

                  True, but I still think a much ginger longer lasting story if a white nationalist. It becomes a crisis story, a fever pitch of impending doom from the ever growing white supremacist threat. With main stream conservatives getting linked in any way possible with white ideology.

                    There appears to be growing violence between the older African jewish community, and the younger European/American jewish community
                    Two rival groups of jews, fighting for preeminence.
                    Alas, this problem is not going away.

                      There has been massive hate and intolerance of Muslims toward Jews.

                        And vice versa, driven mainly by the sheer depravity of the crimes of the occupation in Palestine, and their persistent hiding behind judaism as their justification and excuse.
                        But this is not about settler violence and its repercussions. It is an internal issue between rival factions within judaism.

                          There is no Palestine. It's Israel. Israel has a right to "occupy" their own country.

                          Your anti-Semitism is duly noted.

                            God gave the Promised Land to Abraham.

                            We know your agenda. In fact Darweenie Hitler also shared same feelings with his Muslim pals.
