The New York Post reports that last night, a young Jewish couple were assaulted in New York City. The assailants made it clear that the attack was racially motivated.
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.
There were no serious injuries. There have been no arrests so far.
Last week, someone hung a gigantic Palestinian flag off of the Brooklyn Bridge. That flag had “Boycott,” “Divest,” “Sanction,” and “Gaza in our Hearts” written on it. There have been no arrests in this breech of security at the bridge.
