NYPD: “UPDATE-23-year-old Waseem Awawdeh was arrested”
The recent spate of antisemitic attacks on Jews in (mostly) Democrat-run cities is horrifying.
Jewish people are being savagely beaten with objects, punched, kicked, and pepper-sprayed in broad daylight on the streets of our nation’s cities by roving gangs of anti-Israel thugs.
Jews are being savagely beaten in the United States by anti Semitic mobs who have been incited by left wing media and politicians who falsely accuse Israel of war crimes and apartheid. It is time for everyone of good faith to stand up against this vile and dangerous hatred.
