Sunday. September 22, 2019. At Noon rally gathered outside New York’s City Hall Park to condemn anti-Semitic attacks that have been increasing dramatically in the city. Former Assemblyman Dov Hikind said “I’m asking the mayor to declare a state of emergency here in New York with regard to anti-Semitism.”
Usually, the Marxist groups like Rise and Resist ignore protests supporting Israel. However, today, I saw a couple of Rise-Resisting Marxists join the crowd. I know this because one yarmulked fellow was wearing a “Rise and Resist” T-shirt.
He was joined by a masked female comrade with a mission: she blew SMOKE at the crowd, harassment was key. Unfortunately, the inexperienced crowd was easy prey for the agitator.
They began yelling at the interloper. One woman spit (poor form) and another managed in-the-face fake coughing.
They could have ignored the agitator but today’s meme was “Jews Fight Back” encouraging a nose-to-nose confrontation to burst from within the crowd.“I am a Jew” was heard coming from the instigator as the police removed him from the rally.
As for the actual protest, the demonstrators slammed politicians, the media and even fellow Jews for not caring more about the hateful incidents. Good points. And even though Rise and Resist “Blew Smoke” at the rally, that harassment was confronted, for better or worse, as Jews Fought Back!It was a successful protest with a good turn out, check it out in the Flickr slide show and 4 short videos

Some closing words from The Geller Report: “Demonstrators call for a state of emergency over rising antisemitism in NYC” [Geller Report]
“Under Mayor de Blasio’s incompetent leadership, New York City has become unsafe for Jews. If these attacks were occurring against any other ethnic group de Blasio would be calling in the National Guard.
Perhaps de Blasio is reluctant to protect New York’s Jewish citizens, out of fear of angering his hard-Left constituents? Or maybe de Blasio is just another Jew-hating Leftist?
Demonstrators slammed politicians, the media and even fellow Jews for not caring more about the hateful incidents …. Mayor de Blasio (needs) to take sweeping action to stop the trend.

Mr. Mayor, are you back in town? It’s your move…. Listen and LEARN.
