Victim of Vicious Anti-Semitic NYC Attack Furious At “Slap on the Wrist” For Attacker

Victim of Vicious Anti-Semitic NYC Attack Furious At “Slap on the Wrist” For Attacker

“Awawdeh’s plea agreement with the office of District Attorney Alvin Bragg avoids a trial and potentially harsher sentence.”

In 2021, a man named Waseem Awawdeh was part of a gang that attacked and violently beat a Jewish man in New York City named Joseph Borgen.

Awawdeh was released on only $10,000 bail and was treated like a hero by members of the Palestinian community, even vowing that he would do it again.

Here’s a video of Borgen talking about the assault:

The prosecution took forever, but now Awawdeh has accepted a plea deal. He got a measly 18 months.

The Jewish News Syndicate reports:

‘What kind of message does this send?’ says New York City hate-crime victim

Speaking in Manhattan Supreme Court on June 13, Joseph Borgen expressed disappointment at the sentencing of his antisemitic attacker, Waseem Awawdeh, who was sentenced to 18 months, saying he got off with a “slap on the wrist.”

“What kind of message does this send to everybody, to all victims of hate crime?” said Borgen, 31, in a seven-minute victim impact statement. “I really can’t fathom why he’s getting a deal. … I wanted to go to trial. I wanted to see full justice.”

Awawdeh, 24, struck Borgen four times with a crutch as part of a group attack in New York City in May 2021. Borgen heard someone say, “You dirty Jew, [expletive] Israel, go back to your country.”

Awawdeh’s plea agreement with the office of District Attorney Alvin Bragg avoids a trial and potentially harsher sentence.

Ari Kagan, a New York City Council member, called the deal “despicable, shameful and outrageous.” He added that “Joe Borgen was viciously attacked simply for being Jewish. Eighteen months in jail for this hate crime is not justice.”

The Combat Antisemitism Movement said it is “unfathomable” that Awawdeh “was given a plea deal. When the perpetrator states a remorseless willingness to commit the crime again, justice is not served.”

Alvin Bragg is such a disgrace.

I hope Borgen does not vote democrat. That would be unfathomable.

    If he does, then any other encounters like this would be entirely his fault.

    If you disagree with the treatment you’re getting, by the love of God, STOP VOTING FOR THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

      Some folks are slow learners but when faced with a climate that routinely produces examples like this episode I suspect more people will be learning.

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to CommoChief. | June 16, 2023 at 12:42 pm

        Nah, people won’t learn. They never learn. Most have the, “It’ll never happen to me.” attitude right up to the point it actually happens to them. And then they’ll still line up like good liberal democrat sheeple to vote for the very ones that enabled the thugs to beat the living tar out of them in the first place. Lather, rinse, repeat and it never ends.

          That is the problem with Identity Politics. High end identities are encouraged to attack low end identities. And, if your identity isn’t at the top, it’s at the bottom.

          Like it or not, Jews are being thrown into the white people bucket. Just ask Whoopi.

          IDK man, I was a full-time arrogant prick until I was arrogant and condescending to the wrong person who educated me by adjusting my attitude with a spectacular ass kicking, which I richly deserved. That lesson was painfully thorough but needed and more importantly was very effective in altering my future behavior.

      “If he does, then any other encounters like this would be entirely his fault.”

      No. The fault is with the doer, not the victim.

      We have no idea how this man votes as it is. Not every New York Jew is stupid.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to E Howard Hunt. | June 17, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    Jews are generally smart, well educated, but too many are dumb when it comes to being Democrats. Democrats are not Jew’s friend.

I hope I am mistaken, but my bet is that Joseph Borgen, his family and City Council member Ari Kagan will continue to vote Dem, straight down the line.

If you’re gonna cry and whine and corrupt justice with things like “hate crime” enhancements, then actually use them. Now we know you’re just lying.

(Yeah, I knew it before. This is just one more piece of evidence.)

If the dude had fought back he’d be the one in jail

    Unfortunately that is how it works today.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Peabody. | June 16, 2023 at 2:25 pm

      That all seems to have started when the little, or the “delicate” kid finally fought back against being stuffed in a locker.

      The candy-assed principal took the position that fighting back was somehow just as bad – or worse – than the bullying.

        JohnSmith100 in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | June 17, 2023 at 3:33 pm

        That was my experience, about 4 years of being bullied, Principal told my parents a that boys will be boys and I had to take my lumps. That made an impression, then I kicked the living crap out of him, put him in the hospital. No more problems after that.

It’s the City, suck it up and be glad he is alive. It’s restorative justice!

“What kind of message does this send?”

It sends a message that the guilty will be protected (as long as they are a means to an end) and innocents persecuted. It is a foundational element of tyranny.

We all know when the fascists cause problems they are the real victims ask any liberal.

Waseem Awawdeh (part of the Palestinian community) told Borgen: “You dirty Jew, [expletive] Israel, go back to your country.”

Think about that for a minute.

Joseph Borgen is lucky he isn’t being prosecuted for allegedly fighting back, whether he did, or not. Maybe the New York prosecutors reserve that treatment for US Marines.

Some, Select [Black] Lives Matter is a Pro-Choice ethical/religious prescription under DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) doctrine.

It’s part of a world-wide plan to terrorize. Just look at Sweden:

20 hooded Antifa thugs attack 7 women belonging to patriotic women’s group inside a Swiss restaurant:

Now that Soros’ malignant, creepy son is in charge, it’s going to get worse – kinda like Obama’s third term happening now.

There’s never a U.S. Marine around when you need them!

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Q. | June 17, 2023 at 3:45 pm

    There is a neighborhood that really needs a large group of Marines visiting, When the dust settles it would be gratifying if every punk had at least 2 broken bones.

Alvin Bragg is an American citizen, born in America, raised in America, educated in America, and his wokeness is an American ideology.

Remember our fight is with other Americans, our ideological problems don’t come from China, or Russia, or Germany.

It wasn’t Vladimir Putin who decided this man needed to be out of prison, and it wasn’t Xi who made the decision his crime deserved a joke sentence.

Well the Jewish community has hooked their cart to the Dems so they reap what they sow. Don’t really feel bad for them until they change who they vote for.

    guyjones in reply to scaulen. | June 16, 2023 at 5:25 pm

    There were many conservative American Jews who supported President Trump and the GOP. It’s true that the majority of Jews vote Dhimmi-crat, but, given their statistically insignificant numbers and the fact that they live in predominantly “blue” states, they’re not impacting national elections, anyway.

    I find the line of thinking that someone deserves to be a victim of Muslim supremacism, Jew-hate and violence, if they vote Dhimmi-crat, to be misguided.

The vile and despicably Dhimmi-crats are gonna perpetually and predictably dhimmi. Nothing new under the Sun.

Rationalizing, whitewashing and enabling Muslim Jew-hate and terrorism is part of the Dhimmi-crats’ platform and ethos.

When it first came out, “Hate Crime”, we all knew it meant one thing, any minority or liberal who was harmed in any way, either physically or verbally, by a conservative was a hate crime but if it was the other way around, there is never a hate crime added to the real crime committed. It is so bad that it mimics the expression, blacks can’t be racist.

It is unfortunate but it appears communities across the US need to form committee’s of justices to operate when the elected justice system fails to do so.
