(Before It's News)

“According to the report, violent antisemitic attacks in Ukraine are rare, and there is no indication at this time that the assault was antisemitic in nature.”

This is the same kind of denial we see in other reports that say things like, “The assailant was screaming ‘Allahu akbar.’ Authorities are searching for motive.”

Anti-Semitic attacks are skyrocketing worldwide, while the “human rights community” wrings its hands over islamofauxbia.

“Chabad Rabbi Found Unconscious, Bleeding After Brutal Beating at Ukrainian Train Station,” by Rachel Frommer, Algemeiner, October 7, 2016:

A Chabad-Lubavitch rabbi who serves as an emissary for the movement was brutally attacked early Friday morning at the central train station in Zhitomir, Ukraine, the Lubavitch community news site Chabad.org reported.

Rabbi Mendel Deitsch was found unconscious and was immediately transported to a local hospital in what was described as “extremely critical condition.”

Initial reports suggest that Deitsch was robbed, viciously attacked and left bleeding in the train station until he was discovered at around 11:00 am local time.

Deitsch, an Israeli citizen, directs hospitality services and programming at the burial site of the founder of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, located in the Ukrainian village of Haditch. He has previously served Jewish communities in France and Israel, and, according to the report, has been instrumental in aiding Jews of the former Soviet Union. He is believed to have been in Haditch at the gravesite over Rosh Hashanah.

The motive for the attack remains unknown. According to the report, violent antisemitic attacks in Ukraine are rare, and there is no indication at this time that the assault was antisemitic in nature….
