Last month, we told you about the latest, violent, anti-Semitic attacks in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.  Here’s a reminder of how bad it’s become there:

Some 10 people were violently attacked in the last 60 days alone,” noted Rabbi Yaacov Behrman, who heads the Crown Heights-based “Jewish Future Alliance,” in a statement on Wednesday.

Behrman said his group condemned “in the strongest possible terms these type of cowardly attacks on innocent civilians, and we call on the NYPD to drastically increase police presence throughout the community.”

Behrman continued: “We ask what is going wrong in Crown Heights, when innocent Jews are being beaten in the streets in 2019? Is there an atmosphere that is encouraging violence or antisemitism? And, an equally important question, where is the public outrage? Indeed, why isn’t this front page headlines?

On Monday, yet another Jewish resident of Crown Heights, along with her children, was attacked:

An African American male is seen walking down the street. Walking towards him is an Orthodox Jewish woman pushing a double carriage (with two children inside). In a totally unprovoked manner, the man does not walk to the side of the sidewalk, but instead walks into the carriage, lifts his foot and kicks the carriage.

The suspect nonchalantly walks away, without saying a word.

This latest attack was captured on camera:

As is usually the case, reports about the anti-Semitic incident has mainly come from Jewish media. A search of Google News comes up with one New York City television station covering the attack, but with this generic headline, “Man kicks stroller carrying 2 children.”

It’s pretty easy to imagine that if a white man kicked a stroller pushed by a Muslim woman wearing a hijab, the headline would contain much more detail.  It would also be nearly instant national news.
