Anti-Semitic Nuts are Coming Out of the Woodwork in California, New York

We’ve seen this sort of thing happen before. Just a couple years ago there was a wave of anti-Semitic attacks with notable incidents in New York City and Los Angeles. Now it seems to be happening again.


Last night a deranged man broke into a Jewish family’s home in Studio City, CA and threatened to kill them. The couple’s four children were home at the time.

The break-in happened around 5:20 a.m. in the 3000 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard, according to Los Angeles Police.

The victim, who is nine months pregnant, told KTLA’s Ellina Abovian that the intruder first kicked in the door to their master bedroom. Her husband fought with him while she called 911.

“[He said] I’m going to kill you because you are Jewish … Israel kills people,” she said in broken English.

Was this guy trying to reenact the murder of Jewish families is Israel? Fortunately, the husband forced the man outside where police found him still ranting when they arrived. He was armed with a kitchen knife and kept shouting “Free Palestine!” as he was arrested. Reporters (see below) said he was shouting other things during his arrest that couldn’t’ be aired in a televised report.

As for how the suspect targeted this particular family, Yashar Ali reported that the home had “Mezuzahs on the door,” identifying them as Jewish.


The LA Times reports the incident is being investigated as a possible hate crime. Meanwhile in San Francisco, someone apparently targeted a Jewish-owned ice cream shop, smashing windows and painting it with graffiti.

Residents walking down Valencia Street between 20th and Liberty streets stopped in their tracks this morning, to see Smitten Ice Cream’s storefront smashed to pieces, and the one remaining front window covered in graffiti: “FREE PALESTIEN,” it read, with the second word misspelled.

The other windows and two doors were covered in plastic, and shards of glass were visible on the pavement, as well as inside the shop.

Here’s a photo showing the damage. You can’t see the graffiti but it’s on the one remaining window.

As mentioned, the owner of the ice cream shop is Jewish and no other stores in the area were vandalized. Despite that, police haven’t said yet that this as a targeted crime.


And in New York a man was just arrested for a suspected anti-Jewish hate crime which took place more than a week ago.

The suspect punched a woman in the face and then told her he did it because she was Jewish.

Cops said Christopher D’Aguiar, 28, of Manhattan was taken into custody Tuesday evening after a crime stoppers tip helped detectives find him.

D’Aguiar was charged with hate crime assault and harassment for the Oct. 14 incident, where he allegedly struck a 29-year-old woman in the 7 train passageway of the 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue subway station. When she asked him why he punched her, he stated “because you are Jewish” and then ran off, according to police.

The NYPD says anti-Jewish hate crimes are up dramatically since Hamas launched its attack on Israel on Oct. 7.

At least 51 hate crimes have been reported in the city since Oct. 9 — two days after the terrorist group’s unprecedented raid — and 30 of them were against Jewish victims, NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny said at a press briefing.

“Of those 51 incidents, 30 of them were anti-Jewish. So, that’s where our increase over the last period is sitting,” Kenny said.

During the same period in 2022, only six anti-Jewish incidents were reported, he told reporters.


Unfortunately, I suspect this is going to continue to get worse if Israel does launch a ground invasion (which could take months) and if US papers keep relying on Hamas for casualty numbers. And this sort of thing trickles down to kids as well. This report is from just 2 days ago.
