USA: Protesters denounce reported anti-Semitism spike in NYC

Protesters rallied against anti-Semitism in New York City on Sunday, just ahead of the start of the United Nations General Assembly.

The protesters exhibited numerous placards and banners supporting Israel, as well as Israeli flags. Speakers took turns to address the crowd.

“The heart of the Jewish community in America is New York, over a million Jews, that we would have a situation here in New York of unprecedented hate, unprecedented anti-Semitism. We are not talking about the numbers being five and then being 10, we are talking about such dramatic numbers that create such concern and such fear,” said Doug Vican.

“We fear another Hitler, that’s crazy. This is not the way New York city should ever feel,” added Lissa Jacobs.

According to reports, there has been a recent spike in anti-Semitic attacks in New York City, doubling in numbers from 58 in 2018, to 110 in 2019 to date.
