In an article titled “We’re not going to cower...” USA Today describes how small Jewish communities, around America, are preparing for anti-Semitic attacks:
The challenges can be particularly steep for smaller communities, which often find themselves with fewer financial resources and isolated geographically. Paying for security measures like cameras, panic buttons, bulletproof glass, metal detectors or armed guards can add up quickly, and isn’t in every synagogue’s budget.
Interesting that USA sees fit to only list such expensive “solutions.” One can purchase a handgun for far less. If Orthodox Jews are truly worried about being attacked, they should assign one of their own to guard vulnerable locations while armed with a gun. I wonder why USA Today didn’t think of that… Must have been an oversight.
Who are Orthodox Jews afraid of? USA Today tells us:
… in 2018 there were 775 in the first half of the year. The deadliest came in Pittsburgh in October 2018, when 11 people were murdered by a white supremacist gunman. During the Monsy attack on Dec. 29, a man stabbed five people with a machete at the home of a rabbi. That attack came shortly after two shooters killed four people at a Jersey City, New Jersey, kosher market earlier in December.
Yes, I do remember that a “white supremacist” murdered 11 people in 2018. But the other attackers are described as “a man” and “shooters.” Of course, we know that those attackers, like so many others, were black. This is not kosher reporting.
Lion of the Blogosphere had been reporting black-on-Jewish attacks recently. Here are some from his blog:
The 66-year-old victim of Tuesday’s assault was approached by three men at the intersection of S 4th and Keap Streets in Williamsburg at 3.58 p.m. on Tuesday, the source said.
The three assailants launched into an anti-Semitic diatribe, yelling “Jew Hitler burned you, I’ll shoot you,” but did not make any physical contact with the victim, the source said.
The NY Post does not say the race of the perps, but this happened in a Puerto Rican neighborhood (and very close to the housing project where my mom lived when she was a little girl)
A Jewish teen riding a bus in Brooklyn was threatened at knife-point by two assailants who snatched his earbuds and yarmulke while making anti-Semitic remarks Tuesday, police said.
Two female attackers yelled “F— you Jew” and “I will kill you Jews” at a Brooklyn man before shoving him to the ground when he tried to film their anti-Semitic screed, law enforcement sources and witnesses said Wednesday.
Obviously all of these perps are black, even though the NY Post doesn’t explicitly say that.
I found disturbing footage of chair throwing & assault on Chassidic Jew Tue on Albany & Lincoln. Victim is uncomfortable reporting due to the discovery reform (attacker may know his identity). Same group assaulted someone later that night on Union Kingston. @NYPD77Pct @NYPD71Pct pic.twitter.com/f5jEAL5SkR

If white youths had assaulted a black man for no reason, this would be the number one story on CNN.
But because it doesn’t advance the preferred narrative, it’s not reported by any fakestream media at all, it’s only a tweet.
It goes without saying that the ones we read about are only the tip of the iceberg. Many more go unreported, and un-prosecuted.
Since New York, and New Jersey, don’t allow law-abiding regular citizens to carry firearms, I recommend a two-word solution to this problem: Khop ‘im!
In the more free states, there’s better two-word solution: Concealed Carry!
