Depraved and inhuman. @NBC Nazi Broadcasting Comp. I’m loathe to respond to this Goebbels anti-Jew propaganda but Jews have been living in these predominately Jewish neighborhoods for well over a century. Boro Park, Crown Heights, and the increasingly gentrified Williamsberg (but you don’t see Orthodox Jews stabbing and killing the hipsters taking over their community).
NBC article blames Jews for spike in anti-Semitism in New York
“The expansion of hassidic communities in New York’s Hudson Valley, the Catskills, and northern New Jersey has led to predictable sparring over new housing development and local political control. It has also led to flare-ups of rhetoric seen by some as anti-Semitic,” the NBC report says.

An NBC news article, which claimed on Thursday that the growth of ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods in certain areas of New York state were to blame for the recent uptick in violent anti-Semitism there, has drawn harsh criticism in Israel and the US Jewish community.
“The expansion of hassidic communities in New York’s Hudson Valley, the Catskills, and northern New Jersey has led to predictable sparring over new housing development and local political control. It has also led to flare-ups of rhetoric seen by some as anti-Semitic,” the NBC report said.

The article was also picked up by The Associated Press.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lior Haiat lambasted NBC for running the article, which implies that Jews were to blame for the recent attacks against them.
The “outrageous NBC New York article blames the Jews for the rising of anti-Semitism in the New York area. Once again, the victim is blamed for the attacker’s racism. Instead of explanations and excuses, we need unequivocal action against racism and anti-Semitism,” Haiat wrote on Twitter.
