    How liberals are allowing anti-Semitism to flourish

    https://nypost.com/2019/12/29/how-li...OmeiLazRsmTzbw

    Anti-Semitic attacks continue to shake our city and state. Last week, eight attacks — including four in just 48 hours — sent a familiar shock wave rippling through the Jewish community. Then on Saturday came the horrific stabbing in Monsey, New York. The poison of Jew-hatred is spreading.

    Like many of you, I’m thinking, “Not this subject again.” How many columns can be devoted to it? I’ve read them. I’ve written them. It’s exhausting, and it’s dreary. Jews are being beaten up,
    anti-Semitism flows some years and ebbs in others. So what?

    But it matters — gravely.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio released his usual by-the-numbers statement. “Hate doesn’t have a home in our city,” he tweeted. But hate does have a home here, and it has found it while Hizzoner has mostly looked away.

    The mayor added: “In light of recent anti-Semitic attacks, the NYPD will increase their presence in Borough Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg.” But the recent attacks have spread to Midtown Manhattan and Gravesend, Brooklyn. The problem has gotten worse while inaction paralyzed the mayor.

    I first wrote about the uptick in May. The reason the city’s liberal political class was ignoring it, I ­argued, is that the criminals don’t fit their picture of Evil Bigots. They aren’t, for the most part, MAGA hat-wearing white guys with tiki torches. In fact, many of the attackers are people of color, as investigative reporting by Tablet’s Armin Rosen and others has shown.

    Imagine if they were white ­nationalists. How much faster would the mayor and other city leaders have taken action?
    “A lot of folks were told it was unacceptable to be anti-Semitic,” de Blasio said in May. “It was ­unacceptable to be racist, and now they’re getting more permission.” The message was subtle but unmistakable: De Blasio was trying to pin the attacks in bright-blue New York on President Trump.
    Hizzoner didn’t surrender the fantasy for some time. In June, he said: “I want to be very, very clear, the violent threat, the threat that is ideological, is very much from the right.”

    He left unclear how the Big ­Apple had come to be populated by ideological far-right types beating up on Jews. His comments ­underscored his inability to truly counter the type of street-level ­anti-Semitism spreading through the city.
    Will he face the facts now? Or will Jews need to actually die, not just be pummeled, for our leaders to grasp the threat?

    “Anti-Semitism is an attack on the values of our city — and we will confront it head-on,” de Blasio tweeted after this latest round of violence against Jews in the city. He has to stop beating around the bush. These attacks aren’t an ­attack on “our values.” They’re attacks on visibly Jewish people.

    Even Sunday, after the Monsey stabbings, he blamed Trump and “Washington” for creating “an atmosphere of hate.”

    De Blasio needs to stop trying to find a “them” to be the opposite of his “us.” His juvenile obsession with having the right adversaries allows anti-Semitism to flourish.

    I used to write about Europeans and their apathetic attitudes ­toward the Jew-hatred around them. Synagogues torched, Jews beaten — just another day on the Continent.
    But now the demon is here, in America. Worse, it’s stalking Jews with increasing regularity in New York City, my city, home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. Hizzoner’s vague universalist rhetoric obscures this raw reality.
    And it isn’t just his ideological blinders. The mayor has also helped create an anti-police ­atmosphere, in which the vigilant presence of officers is considered a bad thing. At an anti-police rally last month, there were signs calling for violence against the NYPD.

    De Blasio’s response? He insinuated that the idea that there’s anti-police sentiment in our city is, yes, another right-wing plot.

    In 2020, I don’t want to read ­another column like this one. All Jews want is to live our lives in safety. To ensure that, the mayor will have to stop using the violence against us to fight his invisible political foes.

    De Blasio’s ideology has led to apathy, which, in turn, has resulted in injured Jews in our city. It’s time for his administration to take serious action, starting by flooding hot-spot neighborhoods with ­police officers empowered to act.

    In May, I wrote: “The attacks, and the silence of progressive New York, are utterly appalling.” In ­December, it’s more than appalling. It’s complicit.

    "One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation." –Thomas B. Reed (1886)

      It is interesting to see the leftists call Trump anti-Semitic in spite of not only his immediate family and that he is the first President to actually follow through on moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. The Democrats and especially the Jewish politicians cannot separate themselves from the self-hating Jews and anti-semities of their party. Just as they hate Trump for who he is and how he keeps winning they also hate Israel for what it is and how it has successfully defended itself from attacks on all sides. The universities poison the youth and various state politicians perpetuate the BDS (boycott Israel) movement. The demonization of property and business owners who happen to be Jewish naturally follows. The democrats live in a house of cards that can only survive if there is racial and/or religious strife. Look at the race hustlers like so-called reverends Sharpton and Jackson. I once asked a conservative Jewish friend why so many of his fellow Jews voted Democrat. He told me that for those people liberalism is their true religion and being Jewish is a distant second.

        Look at the Squad with Talib, Omar, AOC, etc., and their repeated, blatant anti-Semitic commentary over the past year and that tells you everything you need to know about the anti-Jewish sentiment that has crawled out of the sewer in the Democratic party. People, and I use that term loosely, like Deblasio, Pelosi, Sanders and Warren are nothing but enablers. And all this started under pro-Palestine, anti-Israel Obama. He threw more shade at them than a total solar eclipse stationed in orbit over Tel Aviv.

        Trump, on the other hand, has been the greatest friend to Israel and the Jewish community the US has seen in decades. The vast majority of these attacks are by total nutjob liberals, than either blamed on Conservatives or ignored altogether.

          In reality it is Trumps fault , by signing this Executive order ( https://www.federalregister.gov/docu...-anti-semitism) he put one religion/country/class above all others . Also him backing up Netanyahu a criminal (bad Jew) was another big mistake in the world view but hey the corrupt stick together. The good Jews are fighting for their way of life. Trumps Make Israel Great Again is rubbing some the wrong way, by the way he's done more to make Netanyahu Israel Great Again than he's done for America as he likes to say . Serve this country first! Believing what Israel says about Palestine to me is like what I assume is like what Japan told its people just before they attacked the United States in WWII ... Propaganda!
          There are two types of people in this world. People that think the Goverment is looking out for their best interest and people that just think !

            Do you really think the Monsey attack and the other local attacks are due to Trumps Israel policy?
            I would find it hard to believe any of the perpetrators involved in any of these attacks know anything about Trump's Israel policies.

              I do know the black Israeli's (the tribe of Dan) feel slighted, I also know that anti Semitism is being used to usher in the Noahide laws.

                So your claiming these attackes are by folks from the Tribe of Dan opposed to Noahide laws?

                  There’s no such thing as Palestinians. The black Hebrew Israelites are a bunch of racist anti Semitic POS. PDJT is doing what is right as Christian.
                  Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

                      Ok so the attacks are from Tribe of Dan members
                      and we are all being subjected to Noahide laws now?
                      Sorry but I don't see either in recent events.
