Washington Post Seems Surprised That Anti-Jew Incidents Are Rising Across U.S.

And by “U.S.”, they are mostly occurring in areas controlled by the Democratic Party

Acts of anti-Semitism are on the rise around the country, leaving Jewish community rattled

Hours after a knife-wielding man barged into a Hannukah party in a New York suburb, stabbing five people, top officials condemned the crime as part of a disturbing trend. New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo called it “domestic terrorism,” linking it to the recent spate of violence against Jewish people in New York.

Anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise around the country, leaving members of the Jewish community feeling frightened and unsafe. In New York City, anti-Semitic crimes have jumped 21 percent in the past year. According to the Anti-Defamation League, there were 1,879 incidents of anti-Semitism in the United States in 2018, including more than 1,000 instances of harassment. The 2019 figures are expected to meet or exceed that number.

“This is a national phenomenon that we are seeing and it’s frightening and it’s disturbing,” Cuomo said at a news conference Sunday. “If anyone thinks that something poisonous is not going on in this country, then they’re in denial.”

What could be driving this?

Experts say anti-Semitic violence has been rising for years. In 2018, a gunman stormed Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue, killing 11 congregants, and wounding six others. It was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in the history of the United States.

Last April, during the observance of Passover, a gunman killed a Jewish worshiper at a Poway, Calif., house of worship and injured three others.

And a string of attacks in recent weeks has left the Jewish community in the New York area particularly unsettled.

This month, David Anderson and Francine Graham went on a violent rampage at a kosher supermarket in Jersey City, New Jersey, killing three people inside the store. The pair have been linked to the Black Hebrew Israelites, a hate group that traffics in anti-Semitic tropes. Authorities said they also posted anti-Semitic and anti-police screeds online.

There are many more incidents listed, and not one occurred in an area run by Republicans. Of course, the WashPost includes Bill De Blasio and Elizabeth Warren blaming Trump for this rise of hate, because that’s all they have. They fail to look inside, and realize that the Democratic Party base has been pushing anti-Israel policies while supporting Palestinian terrorists for decades. They have backed the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) movement, which is simply a movement to destroy Israel and is purely anti-Jew. The anti-Israel and BDS movements have turned the supporters into Jew haters over time, because that was the point.

College campuses, run by Democrat voters, were and still are breeding grounds for the anti-Israel/Jew and pro-Palestinian/terrorist beliefs, especially in areas like California and New York. The Women’s March was essentially run by Jew haters. Bernie Sanders has an Israel and Jew hater advising him in Linda Sarsour. You have several federally elected representatives, most notably Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who are purely Israel and Jew haters, and the party really doesn’t do anything about it. As Dov Fischer notes

The initial outrage felt among Democrat leaders when Omar and Tlaib tweeted Nazi tropes is no more. The turning point came when the Democrats prepared to condemn anti-Semitism within their ranks, then learned that they could not pass such a resolution, that the Old Timers had lost control of the ship, that the new trope driving discrete small but influential primary voting blocs is that Israel and Jews do not fit into the world of contemporary Intersectionality. Rather, as the vile Jew-haters who lead “The Women’s March” have demonstrated, Israel-hatred and Jew-hatred is cool.

The Left has adopted hatred of Israel as a new sacrament. In a world where tyrants persecute in Iran, North Korea, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Saudi Arabia — indeed, the entire Arab and African Muslim world that desecrates and burns churches by the thousands — it is Israel, tiny democratic Israel, alone that must be boycotted and sanctioned. These are the Left’s new targets. Hitler made it un-cool to say “I hate Jews,” so they say “I hate Zionists.” Just as they denominate all non-Jewish political opponents who are reasonable conservatives as “racists” or guilty of “White privilege.”

That full article is well worth the read. This doesn’t mean that all Democrats are Israel and Jew haters: they aren’t. But, the base certainly is, and the Jew and Israel hatred is spread out through the party faithful.

    They occurred in the US, an area run by a Republican, Donald Trump. Hate crimes against Jews have increased since President Trump took office.

    “Jews won’t replace us!” your brethren (“very fine people”, according to Trump) chanted in Charlottesville. One “very fine” person drove his car into a crowd, killing a young woman.

    The domestic terrorist that attacked the Pittsburgh synagogue said, “HIAS (formerly, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

    Sounds like he could be Trump’s speechwriter.

    Anti-semitism is part and parcel to Neo-Nazism.

      No, Teach was talking about localities, but it’s understandable you want to deflect from the shabby record of the Democrats.

      Old news, isolated events. What’s happening is in the Lefty paradise of Gotham, perpetrated by your pals, the Moslems.

      Thank, you, Captain Obvious. It also goes hand-in-hand with Islam and the Democrat party who have been partners for 40 years.

    Yet, it’s white nationalists and Black Hebrew Israelites, not Democrats, responsible for the terrorist attacks.

    Commenters here are familiar with the white nationalist movement in the US.

    White nationalists espouse the belief that certain white people constitute a race and seek to maintain a white national identity, seeking to ensure the survival of the white “race” and white culture. They promote the idea of a white ethno-state – that white people should maintain their majority in majority-white countries and continued political, cultural and economic dominance. The base of the white nationalism movement believes that the promotion of diversity and non-white immigration are part of a white genocide.

    The SPLC “lists 144 Black Hebrew Israelite organizations as black separatist hate groups because of their anti-Semitic and anti-white beliefs”, writing that “the extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement” is black supremacist. It also wrote that the members of such groups “believe that Jews are devilish impostors and … openly condemn whites as evil personified, deserving only death or slavery”. The SPLC also wrote that “most Hebrew Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and do not advocate violence”.

    TEACH intentionally conflates questioning Israeli policies with anti-Semitism.

      Try Moslems. Your pals. Y’know, the ones you had over for Christmas. /sarc

      No, we only know that the Left is desperate to smear Trump with its own hatred.

      The very definition of projection.

      So does anthropology. It’s called Caucasian.

      and seek to maintain a white national identity, seeking to ensure the survival of the white “race” and white culture. They promote the idea of a white ethno-state – that white people should maintain their majority in majority-white countries and continued political, cultural and economic dominance.

      As opposed to racists like Zippy and Baghdadi Bunny who want to see white people wiped out by their Brown Wave.

      PS Ain’t happenin’.

      No, it’s part of the destruction of America for the purpose of instituting Communism.

    I’m sorry that anti-Jewish attacks are happening. But if we explore the motives of people who don’t like Jews, we find that Gaza has little to do with it. Much more prevalent is the impression that Jews are engaged in communist political activity. Which they are. They play the victim card, over and over, to minimize the fact that they are in fact a political organization.
