Young Jewish girls in Brooklyn, NY were assaulted and had glass bottles thrown at them in two separate incidents as they were walking home from school. In one of the attacks the assailants – two teenage girls – called the victim a ‘dirty Jew,’ local blog CrownHeights.info reported Tuesday.

In the first incident three assailants – one White and two Black teens – accosted two 10-year-olds, first by throwing a glass bottle at them, then by grabbing one of the girls by the neck.

In the second incident the two assailants – the same two Black girls from the first attack – threw yet another glass bottle at two 12-year-old Jewish girls.

The bottle hit one of the girls in her knee. CrownHeights.info writes: “One of the attackers then pounced on the victim, grabbing her in a choke hold and began shouting expletives laced with racial diatribe. ‘You dirty Jew’ and ‘get the … out of Crown Heights…'”

The victim managed to break free of the choke hold but was punched in the back as she fled, causing bruising and swelling which required medical attention, according to the report.

A source in the police department told CrownHeights.info that they are taking this incident very seriously and have referred it to the Hate Crimes Task Force for investigation as a possible hate crime. The latter division of the NYPD could not immediately be reached by The Algemeiner for comment.

Watch a video of the first incident below.

  • question is that how did they recognize the girls on the road as Jews? do jews have horns?
    What was the AGE of black girls ? IF 10 ? then this all is nonsense because children DO fight…!
    maybe the small girls created the whole story themselves…there could be some more inside story..
    @Irwin Graulich ..ur comment indicates extremism..try to be human! Black people are also humans..also jews..

  • there’s lots of racism being spewed on this message board.. sure, black people DO seem to have a proclivity towards violence, but to group all people together under one assumption is wrong. are all jewish people cheap money-grubbers? no! are all blacks violent criminals? NO! let’s stop with the intolerance and generalizations, because that will only lead to more intolerance. i’ve lived in this section of crown heights for many years, and i can say that i’ve seen LOTS of black and jewish people getting along and being friends. there will always be those who look to start a fight, be they white, black, asian, hispanic, or middle eastern.

  • Mark Cohen, thank you for your truth about “Blacks”. It’s true, but sad, every word that you stated is right on point. Take a bold stand against the childrens of the devil {“Blacks”}. I am a victim of my own community in government and the society. I know how evil they are, and that is why I stated the devil. I was telling my best firend who is Jewish that “Blacks” are part of a violence terror cult. Don’t trust them. Not even my Mother. Dr. Rabbi Roseberg, I hear your call, and am open to sit with you on the raise of hate and violence against the “Jewish” people. MY best firend is Jewish and Doctor. And I witness their love, and it is my duty before I leave earth to speak out and up against my so-called people.

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts about anti-Semitiswm
    Brooklyn. Regards

    • Blacks males naturally behave like this (it has nothing to do with Islam) They are violent, impulsive creatures who act spontaneously. A Black is 40 times more likely to attack a white than vice versa, it’s their nature. When you see a group of Black males on the street, they can spontaneously form a mob. And Black mobs attack people in every city in America randomly. Watch the videos on the internet. You have to be armed and ready to shoot them. Keep your women away from them too. Don’t get e wrong, there are some very good and decent Black people, but unfortunately, you’re dealing with the lowest scum and you have to understand their behavior.

  • It will always be a bad mix,Ultra Orthodox and ignorant goyim.

  • I think bullying has not been properly addressed yet in American society. All Schools should have anti bullying programs especially for girls who tend to be the worst bullies. This might help to counter the negative influences in their homes.

  • every Jew a .22!!! Teach Krav Maga to all Jews!!!

  • Sarai Pasha

    the same thing happened to me when i was a child but in the Marine Park area of Brooklyn – this was in the 1960’s!!! people are not born hating – it is learned!!! horrible then, horrible now.

  • Keis Kristian

    Remember the prisons are full of blacks and Muslims. The Muslims are converting the blacks to islam. There you have the problem
    Send the Muslims to prisons for Muslims only. They can have their halal food.
    Keep the Christians and others away from the influence of Islam.

  • Jude Rosenstock

    I’m sorry but am I the only one that thinks this article and many of the comments are blown out of proportion? The “attack” in the video is barely what it suggests. I was expecting to see something much more horrible than this. This is the type of thing that kids do to each other. They’re mean. They say mean things and oftentimes, they don’t even understand what they’re saying. I agree, this is serious and I hope the police find them and get them to understand the magnitude of their actions but I don’t think this is necessarily evidence of a future holocaust, antisemitism in America or a sudden change in the African-American community’s bond with the Jewish community. This is just a bully trying to say the meanest thing she can muster.

    • Elliot J. Stamler

      I fully agree and am appalled by some of the racist and stereotypical comments in this column. It IS TRUE that there is much more anti-semitism amongst blacks than other groups and it IS TRUE that among some black leaders there has been marked ingratitude toward American Jewry for all of our support for their community-BUT for heaven’s sake..there are 42 million American blacks. The vast majority of them are NOT anti-semitic; are NOT criminals; are not low-lifes. This kind of stereotypical bigotry I read in this column is identical to what is used against us. What happened in Brooklyn is that a couple of black juvenile delinquents from probably awful homelives committed a hate crime-it does not represent the thinking of most NYC black folks. As my fellow commenter writes let’s have some perspective here. I’ll denounce black anti-semites as strongly as any Jew but it’s wrong to smear 42 million people.

    • This is the first of the two attacks. If you retread the article you will see the second attack was more violent.

    • karen jennings

      I totally believe it is very serious. Young gay girls and boys would not have to endure this for long and I am glad they would not. Hate crimes would be all over this. Yes, children are mean and they can bully each other. Here is what makes me think it is a big problem. Brooklyn has had problems for a long time with this. Also, in their Universities. Not long ago it happened and the bullies were the teachers and staff that encouraged it in their school. I hope something is done soon before one of our children are badly hurt. I am afraid for the kids. I am Christian and I love Jewish people. Sadly some do not and teach their children to hate Jews.

  • These 3 wild animals must be taught a lesson. Put them in solitary confinement for 1 month, no cell phones and no tv. If they ever dare to do it again, capital punishment…and I am not kidding around. Did you see how those female animals went after those 2 beautiful, little innocent yeshiva girls?

    Oh, and each of the animals parents has to contribute $2000 to the yeshiva of the girls.

  • zorka kelly

    an individual claims, “not make a big deal about this kind of attack”, disturbing, could this be on going?????

  • Markus E Brajtman

    This is a typical example of “children are born WITH love, but they are taught by their parents, imams, priests etc. to hate.”
    If the world started to preach love, and that G-D did not create hate, then there would be peace in the world

    When some high ranking archbishop preaches hate, then the world will never have peace.

    What do chilrend know? They are given a meal every day of “hate Israel. Hate Jews” But they do not know why

  • gidon housman

    I’ve seen this before. Whites and blacks get along with each other, and then they see a Jew, and let loose with “Hebe!” or something like this.

  • E Pluribus Beagle

    Mao Tse Bloomberg isn’t concerned with community relations. He’s concerned with using his personal fortune as a SuperPAC to defeat GOP candidates in the midwest.

  • There are a lot of anti-Semitic incidents in Brooklyn.

  • Dirty little black girls. I will bet you poor urchins will be knocked up before you are 15, any bettors?

  • Tabitha Korol

    This is not an isolated incident, and it will be repeated by others if more action isn’t taken…not just to apprehend and punish the perpetrators, but to hold a few sessions in the school on anti-semitism and bullying, as well as sensitivity-training. These kids did not learn their behaviors in a vacuum and if the schools do nothing, then they are complicit.
    “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.” It is time to teach these kids some facts about Israel, Jews and their contributions to the world, and what Martin Luther King Jr. said about Jewish people. It is time to teach them respect for others and some history lessons!

  • Really? Blacks attacking Jews? That’s a new one! The Jews were the ones who marched with Blacks, stood up for them on the street and in the courts. Blacks would not be in the position they are now – from a President, on down, without the active help of the Jews!!

    If Blacks have such short memories, who will stand up for them the next time the tide turns against them?

    • I guess you have a short memory too. You’ve fortgotten poor Yankel from Australia, the Yeshiva bocher who was cruely murdered. I believe the perpetrator is still walking te streets after being let out of prison.

  • Even with video evidence, it is difficult to bring a hate crime charge against a juvenile. All that has to be done is to claim that there was a prior incident involving the victims.

  • How disgusting. You’d think bullies wouldn’t exist in the 21st Century. Sadly the world has not progressed very far. Poor little girls. I hope they are Ok and safe now.

  • What hate Crime ? Don’t you know only Blacks & Gays can be victims of a hate Crime ?

    • This is sad!! I gave the warning in a letter to a New York City Supreme Court Judge, about “African-American” females and the overall community, of pure evil. Hank it was a hate crime, and for you to state that only “Blacks” and “gays” are victims of hate crimes, is pure disqusting. Urban youths are are out of control. Hate is in there up bringing, and influenced by the Mothers and Fathers, media, and T.V. I knew this was coming at sometime, and am sorry for the Jewish girls or any human being that is a subject of “Black” expresion of hate. I support them, and stand with them. It is sad but my community is evil, and i must tell it.

  • When will Jews learn that Blacks hate us. They seem to have no knowledge that the Jews were always involved in their fight for freedom and justice, and have even given our precious children’s life in the 1960’s to help register Black voters.
    What a shame that good is rewarded with evil.

    • Keis Kristian

      How many of those black who attack Jews like these little haters, have been influenced or whose parents have converted to islam

      I was last in NY about 20 years ago.

      I was warned not to take the subway that goes thru Harlem, as the blacks do not like whites.

      by accident, I got off at Harlem and immediately I realised this, I went to stand against the back wall, so that I will be be “accidentaly” push in front of a train.

      The blacks will never be friends of the whites.
      There are many hundreds of blacks who are really godd friends, but they are the very few.
      Remember who is infuewncing them> That Nazi Muslim leader of the NoI.Farakan.

  • To World Jewry:

    I hope you will consider my plea as one of the few Rabbis in Americas who speaks out for Israel, fights anti-Semitism throughout the world and one who speaks out vehemently against extremist Muslims. In addition I fight on behalf of Holocaust survivors and have been vocal regarding the Holocaust Claims Conference missing funds. I was also president of Rabbis for Romney. You are welcome to look me up on the internet.

    We are living in pre Holocaust times. European Jewry is facing major anti-Semitism and parts of Europe are Judenrein. Israel is facing a possible Holocaust from Iran and surrounding enemies. I was just banned from the Huffington Post for expressing my displeasure with Muslims praying at Auschwitz over my family ashes. Extremist Muslims want Israel and all Jews annihilated. My plea to all Jews: Speak out. Tell your Rabbis not to remain silent. We are running out of time.

    Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg

  • Cowardly actions by young people infected with racial/ethnic bias…sad& scary…

  • Nazis come in all colors and languages.

  • I would not make a big deal about this kind of attack in view from who and where it s coming from ….

  • Bernard Ross

    US blacks have polled at 35% anti semitism. 4 times whites and 3 times hispanics.

    • Keis Kristian

      Bernard Ross

      The answer for Jewish businessmen ios not to emply blacks and Muslims.

    Israel Geeks Out: Science, Art and Tech Event Embodies Jewish State’s ‘DNA’

    JNS.org – The entrance to Jerusalem’s Sacher Park was transformed from April 25-27 by a fire-breathing robotic dragon, which flailed its arms and attempted to take flight. The robot, a signature feature at Jerusalem’s first-ever “Geek Picnic,” was one of more than 150 scientific amusements available for the public to experience. This particular dragon was designed by students from Moscow’s Art Industrial Institute in conjunction with the Flacon design factory, said Anatasia Shaminer, a student who helped facilitate the display.

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
