The Hill wants to say that the U.S. has seen this spike, and, while technically correct, the vast majority of these attacks have occurred in Democratic Party run cities, just like with the attacks on Asians of late
The U.S. is experiencing a rise in violent and disturbing attacks targeting the U.S. Jewish community amid the latest conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
Reported attacks across the United States have led to a growing alarm and a series of condemnations from President Biden, Vice President Harris, members of Congress and local officials.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) says reporting of antisemitic incidents has jumped 63 percent since the start of an 11-day war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip that received heavy media coverage in the United States and around the world.
A number of factors appear to have contributed to the attacks, most notably the new conflict in the Middle East.
Well, certainly the notion that the Democratic Party base has long been pro-Palestine and anti-Israel is a big one, especially when you have lots of elected Representatives, most notably Ilhan Omar, AOC, Rashiada Tlaib, and Ayanna Presley (mentioned late in the article), Blaming Israel and not condemning Hamas in the least. When this anti-Israel sentiment jumps into “Apartheid Israel” and other memes, it starts to become hatred of Jews. College campuses run by Democrats have long been hotbeds of Jew and Israel hatred, and pro-Palestinian terrorist. Let’s see what The Hill comes up with
Oren Segal, vice president of the ADL’s Center on Extremism, said it’s hardly uncommon for a flare-up in tensions between Israel and Palestine to lead to attacks on Jewish people elsewhere.
“That’s sort of the worst part and in some ways the most predictable part — seeing all Jews blamed for the policies of Israel, and that’s antisemitism and a standard practice,” he said.
Who’s blaming Israel? Democrats.
But Segal also said the trend is being exacerbated by social media and disinformation campaigns that gained a foothold amid record-breaking reports of antisemitism during the Trump administration.
And Blame Trump. Sigh. But, I guess he has a point, since Trump and his administration were decidedly pro-Israel. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem. Visiting the Wailing Wall. Not keeping Netanyahu waiting around like Obama did. Which meant the kneejerk reaction from Democrats was to Hate Jews and Israel even more.
Some of the attacks, recorded on cellphone video and documented by Jewish advocacy organizations, include reports of assaults on Jewish diners in Los Angeles last week by a group of men reportedly waving Palestinian flags and cursing Jews. Police on Saturday announced they had arrested one of the primary suspects on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, and prosecutors are seeking additional charges for hate crimes.
In New York, police are reportedly investigating as a hate crime an assault on a 29-year-old Jewish man who was punched, kicked and pepper-sprayed by assailants reportedly cursing Jews and Israel.
Outside Chicago, police are investigating as a hate crime an attack against the Persian Hebrew Congregation in Skokie, where a window was broken and assailants left a sign reading “Freedom for Palestine” outside.
The ADL has also kept track of antisemitism and support for terror among nationwide protests in support of Palestinians, with demonstrators in multiple cities brandishing signs comparing Israel to Nazi Germany.
Those are all cities run by Republicans, are they not? It wasn’t Republicans running around with the disgusting signs.
The recent attacks on Jews are also being viewed as the most violent expression of a growing solidarity movement for Palestinian national aspirations that are boosted by an increased focus on racial and social justice in the U.S. in general.
So not Republicans going SJW?
On Monday, more than 500 Biden campaign staffers urged the White House to do more to support Palestinian rights and hold the Israeli government accountable.
“We ask that you work to end the underlying conditions of occupation, blockade, and settlement expansion that led to this exceptionally destructive period in a 73-year history of dispossession and ethnic cleansing,” the letter read.
That rhetoric is being viewed as part of the fuel inflaming the most recent spate of attacks on the American Jewish community.
“There is, I think, a view that if you speak of Israel as a racist enterprise, as a state that is enforcing apartheid, if you talk about ethnonationalism, if you talk about ethnic cleansing and genocide, all of these outrageous charges that one hears from voices on the far left, it can, illegitimately, tie into the racial justice movement sensibilities that were so evident, especially in the last year,” said Jason Isaacson, chief policy and political affairs officer with the American Jewish Committee, a global Jewish advocacy organization.
And the pro-terrorist/anti-Jew and Israel rhetoric is coming from China Joe’s White House. We’ve seen all sorts of people using Hamas rhetoric, things like “from the rivers to the sea”, which is a call for the elimination of Israel, wiping it from the map. There’s been long standing hatred of Israel from so many nations in the UN. You have all these nations cozying up to Iran. What do they think is going to happen? BDS is not something coming from Republicans. This is a Democratic Party issue.
