Numerous Anti-Semitic Attacks in New York City

Democratic Jewish Lawmakers along with a New York City Councilman are pleading for Governor Cuomo to deploy the state’s National Guard in order to combat a wave of anti-Semitic hate crimes sweeping across the city. Illustrating just how mismanaged and out of sync both Cuomo and de Blasio are in effectively dealing with hate crime in the city — in that even Democrats now acknowledge the failed leadership of these two.

State lawmakers went on the record Monday saying that action is needed in combating the daily anti-Semitic hate crimes gripping the city.

Several leaders within the Jewish community also petitioned both Cuomo and de Blasio.

“During the past several days, in particular, several identifiably Orthodox Jews in and around areas we represent have been targeted with a rash of violence unseen in modern history,” the letter states. “Orthodox Jews are being regularly assaulted, menaced, stabbed and murdered in increasing number.”

Adding, “We are writing to ask that you declare a state of emergency and that you deploy the New York State Police and the New York National Guard to visibly patrol and protect Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods throughout our state.”

“Simply stated, it is no longer safe to be identifiably Orthodox in the State of New York. We cannot shop, walk down a street, send our children to school, or even worship in peace.”

The unprecedented move (if enacted), within contemporary time, would harking back to the civil rights movements of the ’60s, when National Guard troops were called up in several states to maintain law and order, as America struggled with the scourge of racism.

The issue reached critical-mass Saturday night when 5-people celebrating the end of Hanukkah at a Rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, were brutally attacked when drifter Thomas Grafton suddenly forced his way into the home and began stabbing the individuals gathered.

There were over 100 people gathered at Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg’s home for the Hanukkah celebration, thus far all survived, with one still in critical condition, with wounds “to the head.”

The likelihood that Cuomo would actually deploy the National Guard is almost zero, in that it would signal that he’s lost control of the issue, which for a politician like Cuomo would be a political disaster, especially considering that within just a day, the governors signature legislation dubbed the “Bail Reform” initiative that opens the floodgates for petty thugs and Class E felons, along with an assortment of low-life’s to simply walk out of jails and back unto the streets of the Big Apple” engaging in all kinds of willful infractions, including attacking Jews at will.

In the wake of Saturday’s knife attack, two Democratic lawmakers sent out tweets to Governor Cuomo, pleading with him to send out the National Guard

“We’re calling for a state of emergency in New York. We need help from the State Police & the National Guard so that we can protect our constituents.”

“Our communities are shaken. We have watched our neighbors beaten, stabbed, & gunned down. We don’t feel safe in our own homes.”

While it’s unlikely that the duo running New York State, along with New York City will do anything meaningful to eliminate the threat, there’s one volunteer organization that began patrolling the inner neighborhoods of New York City back in 1979 founded by radio personality Curtis Sliwa.

The red-capped crusader along with his army of unarmed volunteers has begun patrolling the streets of the Crown Heights neighborhood, expanding his patrols to Williamsburg and Borough Park.

“These attacks are taking place, and the cops have not been proactive at all,” Sliwa said Saturday. “It comes from City Hall and the mayor. He’s been just apathetic.”

  1. Does anyone here think for a moment that Cuomo would do anything to protect the citizens of NY? He thinks nothing of killing babies who are born alive, why should he think of protecting our NY citizens? Oh! And what about letting criminals go , or giving out broadway tickets instead of getting bail money? Really???? God help us all, please!! Mercy!

  2. The ‘only’ solution to ANYTHING relating to crime, and likely the only response to this, is the DemonRAT’s siren call for more “Gun Control!” The no longer amazing fact is that semi-sane people continue to vote these incompetents into positions that enable them to impact their lives negatively! There is a long-ago song with the refrain “When Will They Ever Learn When Will They Ever Learn?”

  3. Jewish people are basically a peaceful, peace loving people. That makes them easy targets for the cowardly but violent anti-semitic democrats in our midst who will attack anyone that they think won’t fight back. Like antifa. Hit them with a strong dose of reality and they will high-tail it back to mommy’s basement.

    • You seem to think that the people of new york can vote these demonrats out….they can not. New York, like California, has given illegals the right to vote by issuing them drivers licenses…they are automatically registered to vote unless they opt out. And they wont opt out because the documents state their vote is completely anonymous.

  4. Here’s a novel idea. Why not do like all the states run by sane people do, and allow responsible citizens to arm and protect themselves? You might look into something called “the Second Amendment” of the US Constitution.

  5. Perhaps the Jews should petition the Jewish Establishment, instead? The Jews tend to support all of the policies of the Jewish Establishment including mass racial demographics changes. Those policies irritate and anger a lot of whites who don’t like the demographics changes and we’re now seeing more of the non-whites who the Jews have so desired to alter the racial demographics behaving in an “antisemetic” manner. They need to take a look into the mirror. They pretend that they can’t understand why this is happening. The policies they tend to support have made it happen. Don’t cry for the National Guard when you’ve caused the problems, yourself. Change yourself, instead.

  6. Liberals / democrats screw up everything they touch. New york city is no exception. When are you morons going to grow up and realize liberal / democrat politics do not work and never have.

    All, every single one of you, democrat voters are fools. You are too damn stupid to learn of the past or even last week.

  7. New york will go the same way as chicago, Detroit and seattle. Once fabulous places turned to junk by liberal Politics

  8. hundred people gathered and one drunken bum has to be “conquered” by National Guard “-get yourselves guns ,hide them in your beards if you have to ,or move to Baltimore maybe ?

  9. The top two Democrat robots, Di Blasio and Cuomo, will not respond in any meaningful way to stop violence against the Jewish people because they sit atop the pyramid of power in a political party which openly flaunts anti-Semitism and has erased God and our flag from every plank and background they publicly offer us. Just listen to the vile hate filled hogwash emanating from Democrat media darlings like Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Sure, folks say, it’s taken out of context. What, taken out of context for almost two years?

  10. I say that NY needs to change its laws. First, right to self defense and stand your ground even in public. Second the right to bear arms for self defense.
    I guaranty you that the ones doing this are wimps and if there were laws that allowed self protection and being armed there wold be a very polite society in NY.

    I drove through the area the week after Thanksgiving. It was great and I loved it. I was curious about the Orthodox Jews and really wanted to meet some and talk with them. My time was limited so I couldn’t.

    As a suggestion to those Jews. Bring in some Israeli special forces types and let them roam the area. Hire them as protection officers and have them listed as personal protection officers with the state. Then let them do what they are trained to do. May be expensive, but it beats depending upon the government. They will do nothing but make it worse.

  11. Well NYC Dems have tied the hands of law Enforcement so badly in NYC they are no long able to operate effectively, so now they want to bring in the National Guard? Stupid Dem policies are coming back to haunt them bigtime, and unfortunately thier citizens are paying the price, not that the Dems care. They dont need the Guard they need to let LE do thier jobs without political interference

  12. Didnt New York allow the muslim population to patrol muslim neighborhoods with cars that looked like police cars? And they were allowed to wear uniforms that look like the uniforms of police? If New York allows the muslims to organize their own private “police force” then the jews should be granted protection from the national guard. Muslims Form Community Patrol. Some Neighbors Say No …
