HATE IN FLATBUSH: Jewish Man Assaulted While Walking To Shul

Another day, another hate crime. This one happened in Flatbush. Councilman Chaim Deutsch tells YWN that he spoke to the victim who was walking to Shul in the area on Ocean Parkway and Quentin Road on Monday morning, when a man approached him and began using anti-Semitic slurs at him. The attacker then made specific threats to the victim, and then attempted to repeatedly punch the man in the face. Thankfully, the victim was not injured. The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident. Just yesterday YWN reported about a group of 7 thugs that attacked two Hasidic men in Williamsburg on Shabbos. I’m working with the victim of a hate crime in Gravesend, who was verbally assaulted this morning as he entered a synagogue for prayers. The assailant made a specific physical threat to the victim, and then attempted to punch him [email protected] is investigating. — Councilman Deutsch (@ChaimDeutsch) September 23, 2019 *****SIGN UP NOW —- GET YOUR NEWS IN RECORD TIME***** Make sure you are one of the more than 22,000 that signed up to YWN WhatsApp Status to receive news in live time.

Does anyone think the community actually takes these declarations seriously anymore? We have witnessed multiple press conferences and statements -‎ one after the next  with serious looking elected officials standing next to a few Jewish community leaders, all looking tough for the cameras, hoping to be interviewed and quoted by the media. Clearly, these conferences and statements mean nothing other than photo-ops and sound bites for elected officials looking to shore up their anti hatred credentials with the Jewish community. We are tired of the same cycle- attack, shock, press conference, rinse & repeat. Where are the new updated anti-hatred policies by the Mayor and Governor to counter these attacks? Where is the overwhelming sustained police presence? The depraved attackers aren’t on twitter or impacted by the worthless condemnations & press conferences. Perhaps it is time for the Federal Government to send in the FBI and  bypass the NYPD and start making arrests themselves. Federal hate crime penalties  are far more serious than the revolving door of the Brooklyn court system. ‎Speaking of local officials where is State Attorney General Letitia James who was strongly supported by the Jewish community of Brooklyn? The dereliction of duty of our elected officials has put us in a very dangerous place. We have had enough promises and vows. Action is needed now. To add insult to injury, though the National media and the Democratic party would have you believe that it’s white supremacists and Trump supporters solely responsible for rising hate crimes across the United States, nothing could be further from the truth in NYC. If you need more fuel to prove the pack of lies being spoon-fed to the masses, these same grandstanding officials tell us it’s those “angry Trump supporters who are committing these crimes” when in fact, nearly NONE of the hate crimes against Jews in NYC were the result of a Trump supporter, not unless Trump suddenly has support among 18-year-old minority and illegal thugs living in Brooklyn.
