Insanity, yes, but this is more than just insanity: this is the norming of Islamic Jew-hatred. Farrukh Afzal was screaming “Allah, Allah” and saying that he wanted to “kill all Jews.” New video has emerged (see below) of Afzal switching lanes and nearly hitting another Jewish pedestrian just before he savagely beat Lipa Schwartz. If that isn’t a hate crime, what is? One wonders what the de Blasio regime in New York City would consider to be an antisemitic hate crime, if it can even conceive of such a thing. Perhaps if this hadn’t been done by a Muslim, it would have been classified as a hate crime. But de Blasio doesn’t want to offend his friend Linda Sarsour.
“UPDATE – INSANITY: Hate Charges DROPPED Against ‘Allah’ Shouting Man Who Beat Hasidic Jew in Boro Park [NEW VIDEO],” The Yeshiva World, October 16, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
A suspect has been hit with multiple charges – without hate-motivated distinction – for viciously beating a Hasidic Jewish man in Boro Park on Sunday morning.
Farrukh Afzal, 37, of Staten Island was charged with assault, criminal mischief and harassment for the attack, which took place at around 7:30AM near 46th Street and 13th Avenue.
He was initially hit with hate charges as well, but prosecutors have decided to label this a mere “road rage” incident and NOT a hate crime. This despite the victim and witnesses saying Afzal shouted “Allah, Allah”, said he wanted to “kill all Jews” and made references to Israel throughout the attack.
Additionally, new video (see below) provided to YWN on Monday night, shows Afzal switching lanes and nearly hitting another Jewish pedestrian (top left – behind white van) and blowing a red light as he sped down 13th Ave enroute to 46th street where he viciously beat 62-year-old R’ Lipa Schwartz.
Afzal, who has 8 prior arrests, was detained on Sunday night in lieu of $15,000 bail. He has since been fired from the “Church Ave Car Service” at which he was employed and whose car he was driving at the time of the assault.
As reported by YWN on Sunday, R’ Lipa Schwartz, 62, was walking to Shul, Tallis and Tefillin in hand, when a black “Church Ave Car Service” vehicle driven by Afzal came to a screeching halt at the curb nearby. Afzal got out, ran towards Schwartz and began punching him in his face while screaming “Allah, Allah” repeatedly.
“He came out from the car. I couldn’t explain to you how angry he was. He was screaming the whole time,” Schwartz told CBS2.
“All of a sudden… boof, boof, boof, boof!”, Schwartz said, referring to the barrage of punches that came his way. “So I start to fight back because it’s either death or life.”
