Reality is what’s true even if you don’t want to believe it. Hate crimes surge in NYC, attacks on Jews almost double.
The New York Police Department recorded 184 hate crimes through June 2 — up from 112 in 2018 — during a period when the city experienced a continued reduction in overall crimes.
Of the 184 incidents, 110 targeted Jews, up from 58 in 2018.
The next highest targeted group was whites, who were victims in 11 hate crimes, up from three in 2018.
Other general crime stats are reported in the article, and they basically look good for NYC. This statistic, not so much.
I ran across this via Frontpage Magazine, which quips: “Reality meet narrative.”
When the means of self-defense are outlawed, the old and the infirm are at the mercy of the young and the violent, the small at the mercy of the large, and anyone can be overpowered by numbers.
No guns, no knives, no provision for self-defense at all. You MUST rely on the STATE of everything. Even things they can’t supply. London bus HORROR: Women brutally battered after refusing to kiss for gang of thugs.
Now my guess is that they wouldn’t think of self-defense. They’re too civilized, or domesticated.
TWO gay women were left covered in blood after being brutally beaten on a London bus when they refused to kiss for the twisted amusement of a gang of homophobic men.
In that place where Great Britain used to be.
Don’t expect to see this covered in the US media. Doesn’t fit the narrative. Terrorist attacks two in Jerusalem’s Old City, gets shot by police- watch.
On Friday morning, a 19-year-old terrorist from the West Bank, who had allegedly come to the Temple Mount for Ramadan to pray, stabbed and critically wounded a 47-year-old man at Damascus Gate – which wasn’t captured in the video. Minutes later, while running through the Arab market, the terrorist stabbed the 16-year-old.
The Palestinian doing the stabbing was shot and killed by police.
Both stabbing victims are expected to survive.
Antisemitism. Um, Germany?.
Germans are known for their efficiency, which is how we know that these commissions, councils and laws they create to “combat” the problem are window-dressing in lieu of actual combat. If they really want to stop antisemitism in their country, it would be over with yesterday.

I had to edit the headline of this post a couple times. These guys are more than idiots. Harvard Magazine Apologizes for Lewd Lampoon of Holocaust Icon Anne Frank. (They get the literary-reference facepalm.)
Following a social media outcry and protests from students and Jewish officials, The Harvard Lampoon, a campus satirical magazine, apologized Tuesday for printing a doctored photograph mocking one of the most iconic of Holocaust victims, Anne Frank.
How can you be that freakin’ tone-deaf, and still manage to be student in the Ivy League? I think this says something about how far the institutions of higher learning have fallen.
The New York Times prints antisemitic cartoons in their international division, and less than a month later Harvard does this. With a couple of synagogue shootings as backdrop. I wonder how many of the editors and staff members are Journalism majors.
The Left is going off the deep end. (So does Antifa remind you of the Brownshirts or Mussolini’s Blackshirts?)
Security in houses of worship in general, and Jewish synagogues in particular, is a thing. The ‘Tactical Rabbi’ helps synagogues defend against anti-Semitic violence.
It was 45 minutes into his lecture when the rabbi pulled out an AR-15.
“Who thinks, by show of hands, that we should be carrying more guns in shul?” Rabbi Raziel Cohen asked the crowd at a Westside Chabad synagogue Wednesday night, during an active-shooter seminar organized in the wake of the deadly attack at Chabad of Poway.
Half the room raised their hands.
There are those that disagree, of course. (This is California, after all.) But it is an interesting article.
Burkina Faso is a land-locked country in West Africa, northeast of Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast). Burkina Faso church attack: Gunmen open fire at mass service – priest among six dead.
A group of gunmen broke into a Catholic church in Burkina Faso on Sunday morning during Mass and began shooting at the congregation, Radio France Internationale (RFI) reported. At least six people were killed, and a priest was among those who died.
20-30 gunmen were involved. When they were done with the church the set fire to shops, and attacked the health center.
