A gang of anti-Semitic thugs roughed up a Jewish man and his wife on the Upper East Side on Monday evening before fleeing in cars flying Palestinian flags, police sources told The Post. Two cars and multiple motorcycles pulled up to the couple on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue just after 8 p.m., and the assailants began yelling “anti-Jewish statements,” the sources said. One of the goons threw a water bottle that hit the wife, and the 27-year-old husband was punched in the side of his head when he came to her defense, according to law enforcement sources. (NYP)
We saw this same violence in San Francisco last month, when a truck full of pro-Hamas thugs pulled up to a pro-Jewish rally and started beating the supporters.
This is just the beginning. And the media, Jewish lay leadership and elites agitating against the Jewish state are just as indictable as these savages.

New York Jewish Couple Assaulted by Gang Waving PLO Flags, INN, August 27, 2014 (thanks to Itzhak)
Assailants hurled anti-Semitic slurs before attacking wife and punching her husband as he tried to stop them.
A Jewish couple in New York were physically assaulted Monday by an anti-Semitic gang, who then fled the scene in cars flying the Palestinian Authority flag, according to the New York Post.
Police sources say two cars and several motorbikes suddenly pulled up next to the couple as they were walking on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue on the Upper East Side, just after 8 p.m. Monday evening.
The attackers then started shouting “anti-Jewish statements,”, before launching their assault.
One of the men struck the woman with a water bottle, and another punched her husband in the side of his head as he intervened to defend her.
The victims, who live in the area, were left shaken but not seriously injured, and refused medical treatment at the scene. Their identities have not been released, but the Post said the husband was 27 years old, and that they may have been targeted because he was wearing a kippa (skullcap).
Police have launched an investigation into the hate-crime, but as of Tuesday no arrests have been made and a profile of the suspects has not been released.
There has been a dramatic spike in anti-Semitic crimes since Israel launched Operation Protective Edge to combat rocket fire on its civilians and terrorist infiltration tunnels from Gaza.
Europe has been particularly hard-hit, but several anti-Jewish hate-crimes have also occurred in the US and elsewhere, with anti-Israel and pro-Gaza slogans or sentiments featuring prominently.
According to the World Zionist Organization, last month saw a more than 383% rise in anti-Semitic incidents compared to the same period the previous year.
