Anti-Semitic attacks against the Jewish community are ramping up and Democrats don’t seem to care because the attacks are coming from Palestinian supporting extremists.
One recent attack came in New York City on Thursday.
“The fight in New York City occurred around the same time as a pro-Israel demonstration on Thursday in New York City that also attracted pro-Palestinian counter-protesters,” The Times of Israel reported. “It took place in the Diamond District, a midtown Manhattan street with many Jewish-owned businesses.”
A now viral video shows an extremists shouting “f***ing Zionist” while holding a Palestinian flag towards members of the Jewish community. One witness at the scene explained that the radicals mobbed and spit on people for being Jewish.
“These are not Palestinian terror supporters,” he wrote on Twitter. “These are actual terrorists on the streets of New York City. Attacking diners for one reason. They’re Jewish.”

Fireworks were even launched towards crowds and one woman even got burns on her neck. The New York Post reports:
Footage, posted to Twitter by freelance reporter Oliya Scootercaster, showed a pro-Israel demonstrator getting socked in the stomach after attempting to chase down a man who snatched an Israeli flag from his hands. More punches were thrown in tussles between the two sides as NYPD officers stepped in to separate them, according to the clip.
The video later showed a pro-Palestine protester being put in handcuffs after he tried to run after a man who grabbed his Palestinian flag. Multiple arrests were made. Law enforcement sources said that at least 19 people were taken into custody.

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt released the following statement in response to the violence: “Disturbing videos appear to show vile verbal assaults and fireworks directed at Jews. Other reports of violence are coming in. We are in touch with law enforcement. While we await more information, let’s be clear: targeting Jews is #antisemitism.”
“Frightening attacks on Jews in Times Square of #NYC this evening,” The ADL tweeted. “Many arrests made. Working with @NYPDHateCrimes and @NewYorkFBI , as well as elected officials and the local Jewish community. Violence is absolutely unacceptable.”
