“You voted for Biden, you must be happy with the price of eggs today.”
I didn’t and I’m not.
If someone wins an election that means no one voted against them? That everyone is happy with the results? You think no one here was trying to get rid of this administration? The race was surprisingly close, which showed that the democrats were not expecting so many people to vote against Hochul.

Those 4 punks need a good beating then they will learn to leave Jews alone.

Why has this become normal??

There needs to be more often patrol, especially when it’s dark outside

When you are dealing with a group of four thugs it shouldn’t be that hard to find at least one of them. Once one of them is caught that should lead to the rest.

But catching them is a minor issue. Having them face any consequence in such a liberal city is going to be the main difficulty.

Beat them….

Friends, Dont forget to send your maaser to SHOMRIM/SHMIRA. They are there for us night and day. They give of their time and put their own safety in the line. They rely and need our donations big or small. Radios, gas for their cars. Please consider giving them a donation even if it is just for one time. Call them they will happily pick up your donation. I Have done it a few times.

If we judge our neighbors according to a few bad apples, understandably this is triggering to hear this once again, how are we ever going to change narrative. This is not a new story but we cant we cant do business as usual ie ‘old school,’
We need to reach out to our neighbors and dialogue and and elected officials to speak out on it.

They are being judged on their actions not skin color.
It just happens that hight rates of these horrific aggressive actions is being perpetrated from a certain segment. It’s called “generalizing”. Which comes from overwhelming numbers.
The leaders of that community are not doing their job. If they would we would see a decrease instead of an increase in these types of incidents

“Out of hand” wrote “everyday occurrence” which does not mean that it happens every day necessarily. It means that it is not uncommon or shocking. And sadly it is out of hand. No exaggeration!!

January 16, 2023 7:32 pm

What is a realistic response?


1. Move out of NYC?
2. Hire ex- IDF or US military to secure the neighborhood?
3. Elect a Vaad Hakol Laser focused on security?
4. Charge a resident tax to pay Shomrim and Shmira for enhanced shifts?
5. Pay private investigators to locate perps shown on security footage?
6. Wake ourselves up and realize that the status quo is not working?
7. Mass distribution of legal self defense tools?

PS. At the very least, let’s stop voting Tammany Hall.

The local climate has become inhospitable to put it mildly.

Police catch them and release same day and they know it and it’s a joke. The system is rotten. Soon there will be warm outside and more incidents like that – we need to keep them busy with something else, the DOE AND POLICE have funds to make their school day long to keep them away from crime. Their anger comes from their home, we can’t change that, they still blame Jews and hate us, unfortunately, they see us as their enemies and easy targets. They respect only ones who are stronger or if there is a law or fine.… Read more »

Where I live in Chicago there are many Assyrian’s living along side the frum yidden. It’s not all the best neighborhood. They don’t bother the Jews but there are all sorts of minority groups in the area and they have a posing gangs etc. Across the street from the Lubavitcher Shull Bnei Reuvein, there used to be an Assyrian convenience store. A few years back in middle of Maariv a couple of Assyrian gang members were shot fatally in their car parked in front of the convenience store. Within moments before the police arrived the Assyrian store owners wiped clean… Read more »

remember it is illegal to profile minority youth, as no evidence exists that they are more likely to commit crime rather it is disparate impact policing that results in such youth getting arrested, its all a legacy of Americas institutional racism

Wearing masks
January 16, 2023 11:44 pm

Wearing masks in the commission of a crime in order to hide yourself should come with extra charges. These cowards can be identified by the police.. if they bother to do anything about it. If the boys had carried peeper spray they would have been able to defend themselves against these older and more numerous cowards. Of course the antisemitic police will arrest any Jew who defends themself but better than that then the alternative.

The one and only way to deal with this-PUBLICIZE
January 16, 2023 11:51 pm

Get it into any and all news stations that still have some integrity. Fox once or twice publicized a string of hate crimes in our community. Let them do it again.

January 16, 2023 11:55 pm

Is the fact that the police go after Jews who defend themselves, and that keeps us victims. At the same time it seems like they either don’t arrest or give their own false evidence in the police reports. I assure you that if the thugs had reason to fear the victims there would be no victims. Right now they see us as an easy target and the reason is – admit it- we are afraid to defend ourselves. This is what needs to change now.

It all depends who your neighbors are. Fifty years ago Boro park was very unsafe. Half of Boro park was Italian and the other side Puerto Rican. Every Friday night Italian youth would drive around throwing things at Jews from their cars. What changed. Two things. Boro park became overloaded with a Chassidic population and these Italian anti semites got some heavy beatings. The second thing that happened is that a hundred fifty thousand Chinese moved around Boro park. Chinese are nice people. They work and don’t bother Jews. You need to bring in five million Chinese to New York.… Read more »

It is indeed appalling, that after Jews

is how they pay us back. Disgusting!
Like, “Bite the hand that feeds you.”

However, in recent years, the most murderous
anti-Semitic crimes were committed by white-supremacists,

It’s not accurate to say that the low class thugs that live around us represent all of black culture and opinion. I grew up around black people in Baltimore and had quite a different experience. If you go to Manhattan or Williamsburg and meet black people there, I’m sure it will be a different style encounter.

are taught how to be hateful by anti semitic adults who blame whites, and Jews in particular, for their own weaknesses. that weakness being the lack of motivation to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. Then, to add icing on the cake, they get reinforcement from characters that call themselves “leaders” like the very un”Reverend” Al Sharpton and Obama’s “Reverend” Wright, who delivers sermon after sermon badmouthing whites and Jews.(of course most of the time he calls them Israelis, not Jews, but that’s just a code name as everyone knows.)
