Hate Campaign Against Jews in New Jersey Escalating
Apparently there have been several attacks on Jews in Jersey recently that have culminated in the family of an Orthodox rabbi being targeted in an arson attack. Via Atlas Shrugs is a video report:
What a surprise. Oh, it’s not actually since just recently a New York City Councilman actually had to call on NYC street vendors to stop selling Swastika earrings. Yeah, you read that right. Street vendors in NYC were selling Swastika earrings:
Brooklyn, NY – Council Member Stephen Levin (D-Williamsburg) issued the following statement after learning from an article in The Gothamist by Christopher Robbins that Bejeweled, a Greenpoint retailer, is selling swastika earrings:
“One of the most discouraging and disgusting examples of hate in our City is the recent rash of anti-Semitic vandalism in Brooklyn and Manhattan,” said Levin. “The fact that a young person can walk into a store in Greenpoint and spend $5.99 on a pair of swastika earrings only serves to promote and extend the recent resurgence of anti-Semitism in New York. I won’t stand for this in my neighborhood or in my district and I am calling on Bejeweled and all other City retailers who sell these earrings to remove them from your shelves and help us remove the hate from our City.”
You’ll notice that the above paragraph references a surge of anti-Semitic hate crimes in NYC. This isn’t new, when I left NYC a few years ago there was a wave of desecration of Jewish cemeteries. I advise all my Jewish friends to move to the south and get out of the northeast before the pogroms begin.
