Stringer Has Had Enough Of The Anti-Semitism

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Swastikas have been scrolled in white grease paint on the windows of a Japanese bookstore and clothing store on 41st Street and 6th Avenue, where several rabbis and Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer gathered Tuesday to say ‘enough.’

“We’re not going backward and we’re not going to let these two bit punks cause damage to our great city,” said Stringer.

The Anti-Defamation League‘s Ron Meyer announced a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest.

“This is the worst symbol of hate known to mankind and clearly directed at the Jewish people as active anti-Semitism. We won’t stand for it,” he said.

“We have come to learn in history it may start with Jews. It doesn’t stop with Jews,” said Rabbi Joseph Potasnik of the New York Board of Rabbis.

The NYPD is searching for two men and two women caught on surveillance video in Sunday’s incident.

Anti-Jewish slogans were also found in the 18th Avenue and Kingston Avenue subway stations in Brooklyn.

    Tyrone, everybody who works for a living is concerned with making enough money, whether they’re getting minimum wage, welfare, or huge bonuses. Each person has to determine what constitutes “enough” for them, and aim at that goal. That’s part of the freedom we have in the United States that is so rare anywhere else. I have a feeling that no one will ever make the denunciation you mentioned, for the simple reason that most of those things that Jewish people are “known for” are not true. They have been invented over the millenia by Romans, Europeans and Americans whose insecurities and weaknesses cause them to need a scapegoat. Its the thing that causes hatred between races and between nationalities. Unforunately, the feelings of impotence that bigots live by are strong enough to surviive being denounced countless times.

    Einstein was the only respectable Jew to come along in 5 Billion years. Alright,

    @Tyrone. Your perspective seems to be driven by your culture. There are other cultures that do not share or support the stereotype you describe. Whether or not there is any merit to your representation of that stereotype, the implications are that the alleged personality traits are justification for persecution. And that is where you will find resistance to your posting.

    While I don’t agree with all the swastikas being drawn, carved, scrolled, etc lately, Jewish people need to stop being greedy and pushy. Perfect example is Bloomberg. I mean just about everything he does is to make himself money (including becoming mayor which gave him power as well). Not that he needs it. Wish someone would tell him that. And yeah, there are many non-Jews that act the same way. But for whatever reason Jews are more notorious for being so. Maybe their religion teaches them to be that way. I don’t know.

    What I would like to see done is a prominent Jew like Bloomberg, Stringer, or Hikind come out and denounce the negative things that their people are known for (even if it is just a smokescreen). That would probably earn Jewish people more respect and hence reduce the acts of hatred. Just the opinion of someone trying to be impartial.
