This rabbi has a point. Why Crown Heights Hate Crimes Aren’t Newsworthy.
Rabbi Yaacov Behrman, who heads the Crown Heights-based “Jewish Future Alliance,” innocently asked, “Where is the public outrage? Indeed, why isn’t this front-page headlines?”
And of course there was another attack. Brooklyn Synagogue Vandalized In Possible Hate Crime, Police Say.
[Rabbi Heller of the Chabad of Bushwick Synagogue] says community members were enjoying Shabbat together early Saturday morning when vandals destroyed the house of worship’s window.
It looks like a rock or brick was thrown thru a window. It made quite a mess.
So Jussie Smollett is (allegedly) attacked in Chicago, and Twitter and the 24-hour-news (so-called) machine lights up like the Fourth of July, but on the subject of antisemitism in New York City… [insert sound of crickets.] (Well there was some attention paid to a couple of attacks, until it turned out that the person responsible for some of them was a Democrat.)
New York City, Mayor de Blasio admitted Thursday there had been 47 hate crime incidents in the city this year – nearly double the number at this point in 2018.
Of those incidents, two-thirds reportedly targeted the Jewish community.
Media bias? What media bias? Nothing to see here. Move along.
