I Accuse the Leadership of the Democratic Party of Responsibility for Violence Against Jews

Violence against Jews now accounts for 58% of all crimes of religious hatred reported to the FBI. It isn’t just the Jersey City massacre: Violence against Jews by blacks is now endemic in Hasidic neighborhoods in Brooklyn. This is the direct result of anti-Semitic agitation by hatemongers like Louis Farrakhan. The Democratic Party tolerates congressmen in its ranks with public ties to Farrakhan. When Farrakhan calls for the murder of Jews, and black political leaders propitiate this foul demagogue, deranged fringe elements will turn violent.

Update: Joan Terrell Paige, an elected trustee of the Jersey City School Board, publicly justified the massacre on the grounds that Jews were offering to buy houses from black homeowners. Jersey City’s mayor demanded that she resign. Where is the outrage in the Democratic Party? Where are Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders and the rest?

From The Daily Caller:

At least seven House Democrats are known to have direct ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite and racist who has called Jews “satanic” and said white people “deserve to die.”

California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, New York Rep. Gregory Meeks and Texas Rep. Al Green have all attended meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, according to photos, videos and witness accounts of the meetings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

I accuse the leadership of the Democratic Party of responsibility for the murders of my brethren in Jersey City. It is a howling disgrace that Rep. Keith Ellison was until 2018 Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Where are the demands that elected officials and party leaders repudiate Farrakhan?

A majority of British Jews used to vote Labour. This time around more than 90% voted against the Jew-hater Jeremy Corbyn. When will American Jews display the same concern for their own self-preservation?
