5 Stabbed During Chanukah Celebration in Monsey, New York


The Jewish community in the USA is under attack, with the Orthodox community in the New York area taking a major hit. Synagogues are being shot at, Rabbis injured and innocent Jewish pedestrians physically assaulted on the streets. Today, a black man walked into a Chanukah holiday celebration in the community of Monsey, NY with a machete and starting stabbing multiple people.

Yossi Gestetner, co-founder of the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council in the Hudson Valley, said 15 people were hurt; two who remain in critical condition were still in the hospital as of late Sunday afternoon.

37-year-old Thomas Grafton has been identified as the man arrested for the alleged stabbing attack at a rabbi’s home next to a synagogue last night in Monsey, New York. He fled the scene and was found by police in Harlem.

As long as some progressives insist that Antisemitism is only a problem of right-wing / white extremism & excuse others, then they too are part of problem that enables this Jew-hatred, like in Monsey tonight!
