OUT OF CONTROL: Brooklyn Synagogue Vandalized, Woman Attacked on Jewish Holiday

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.19

A Brooklyn synagogue was vandalized during the Rosh Hashanah holiday this week and a woman was assaulted during the Jewish Holiday; with police officers seeking the public’s help to find the group behind the incident.

“Two separate crimes, both on Rosh Hashana, targeted Jewish people in Brooklyn, according to police. In the first incident, authorities are searching for the young vandals who damaged a synagogue in the middle of the afternoon,” reports ABC New York. “The NYPD says video footage shows two people throwing a milk crate and a metal mailbox at a temple in Williamsburg. They were with at least three other people outside the Throop Avenue synagogue.”

“I am disgusted and enraged by yet another anti-Semitic act of vandalism, the desecration of a synagogue in Williamsburg over Rosh Hashanah, one of the holiest days in the Jewish calendar. It is simply unconscionable,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“I am directing the New York State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to offer assistance to the NYPD as they investigate this disturbing act. This incident unfortunately underscores the need for State Police to increase their patrols around houses of worship during the Jewish high holidays this year,” he added.

CITY OF RAGE: De Blasio Says Anti-Semitism -UP 90% in NYC- is Mostly a ‘Right-Wing Movement’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.05.19

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio weighed-in Wednesday on his city’s recent spike in hate crimes across all five boroughs; calling anti-Semitism a strictly “right-wing movement.”

“Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday that anti-Semitism is a ‘right-wing movement’ — while rejecting a claim that the left plays any role in discriminating against Jews,” reports the NY Post.

“I think the ideological movement that is anti-Semitic is the right-wing movement,” said De Blasio in Brooklyn Wednesday. “I want to be very, very clear, the violent threat, the threat that is ideological is very much from the right.”

“Hate crimes against all minority groups are up 64% compared to this time last year. Anti-Semitic incidents have spiked by 90%,” adds the Post.

“I don’t agree with the mayor,” said a Brooklyn Democrat. “I have not seen any white supremacists coming in here committing these hate crimes.”

Far-left politicians -including Rep. Ilhan Omar and others- raised national headlines earlier this year when they made a series of anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli remarks; saying the Jewish State has “hypnotized the world.”

Multiple anti-Semitic attacks in Brooklyn, New York were caught on tape weeks ago; raising serious new concerns over safety and security for the city’s Jewish population.

“Just received a report that a Hasidic father & son were beaten up in Williamsburg this past Friday night for no other reason than being Jewish. Police report has been filed. Here’s footage of the four violent suspects behind the attack – help @NYPDDetectives find them!” posted Dov Hikind, a former NY Assemblyman from Brooklyn.

“It’s shocking but not surprising that such violent hate crimes are being committed against Jews (yesterday in Bklyn) just as antisemitism is being mainstreamed. This attack resembles Nazi Germany where antisemites attacked Jews with glee. We won’t tolerate it!” he added.
