This morning, the New York Post notes a wave of recent anti-Semitic attacks in Brooklyn, New York, following an incident on Tuesday in which car windows in an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood were shot out with a BB gun and a synagogue was defaced with graffiti that read “F–ck Jews”.

Last week, a group of teenagers assaulted a man in Brooklyn as he walked home from temple, screaming “dirty Jews” and “dirty Kike”.

According to the Post’s report, prayer shawls worn by members of Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish community were stolen last week as well, from 5 separate synagogues.

“A thief or thieves also swiped seven silver ataras — decorative neckbands worth up to $600 each that are part of Orthodox prayer shawls — from five synagogues in Midwood last week,” The Post writes.

    Heritage is tribal, culture is worldly like art, cunning like Esau. The truth is free, about black people. Can the tribe of Judah, speak freely about 400 years of affliction openly, without being told “that’s in the past?” But these Edomites are, always praising Hitler ways, and his worldly culture, it is all a ploy about money and land for the state of Israel. The world is pushing Esau culture, but what ever happened to Jacob heritage (Jeremiah 17:4). The star of David vs the star of Jacob, what seems worst to the synagogue Jews, suffering under Hitler hands or being exposed by Jesus Christ grace and truth. Who does the state of Israel love?

    I hope they find the boys that did this and make them attend a BUNCH of meetings so they rethink their vicious and cruel ways. My son experienced one incident of anti semitism while in the 8th grade. The girl had to attend the Conference for Christians and Jews, and then write about a person who survived the Holocaust. Her whole family was that way. She was a better person for it. The school also brought in a Survivor and the kids were messmerized. My heart goes out to the neighborhood.
