Rather than protecting Jews, authorities are telling us to hide — again

A day after Jewish college students decided it was necessary to barricade themselves in a library in the heart of Greenwich Village, while a mob of disgusting terrorist enthusiasts banged on the locked door in an attempt to gain access to them. , the New York City Police Department announced this Shabbat: , Jews in Brooklyn are better off staying home.

I’m inside.

Please lock the door.

A pro-Palestinian protest is scheduled for Saturday in front of the Brooklyn Museum starting at 3 p.m.

It is one mile from 770 Eastern Parkway, the headquarters of Lubavitch Hasidism, the world’s largest ultra-Orthodox sect.

Approximately 20,000 observant Jews live near District 770, known as Crown Heights.

“Jews should avoid the area at all costs,” a police source told

“At this time, there is no information as to what direction the protests will take. Locals are advised to stay away from Eastern Parkway in that area at all times.”

Our New York City police force is telling the Jews of Brooklyn that they are in danger and, by implication, cannot protect them.

On the Sabbath, observant Jews do not use any electricity, vehicles, or screens.

To kill time on the Sabbath afternoon, they often go for long walks.

Not this weekend.

As NYPD officials said, at the end of the day, you never know which direction the mob will go.

Jews are better off staying indoors.

Just as it was in 1991, when staying indoors became a matter of life and death for those in the same region.

What everyone fears is a repeat of August 1991.

That year, three days of anti-Semitic riots broke out in Crown Heights following a tragic car accident in which a 7-year-old black child was killed by a car driven by a Hasidic Jew.

Not only were 38 Jews beaten, but seven Jewish-run businesses were looted and burned.

“Let’s go get the Jews,” the mob shouted, and they did. They killed an Australian PhD student named Yankel Rosenbaum by stabbing him and smashing his skull.

At Cooper Union in Greenwich Village on Thursday, children barricaded inside for safety saw members of a pro-terrorist group staring at them through the glass doors.

Those kids heard the ridicule from the outside and, as any of us Jews who have lived for thousands of years know in our bones, any of them could become Yankel Rosenbaum at any moment. I knew there was.

I’m inside.

Hang the bar on the door.

Why do you think the marchers are gathering near Crown Heights in the first place?

This is the reason.

Their purpose is not to call for a ceasefire or defend the Palestinian people.

Their purpose is to make known what October 7th revealed. If the Jews had their way, there would be no peace or security anywhere in the world.

And instead of announcing that the New York City Police Department would send 5,000 police officers to the streets to prevent a mob from disrupting a lone Jewish afternoon stroll, they said:

I’m inside.

Beware of mobs.

Monsters are here.


That’s what happened in 1991.

For two days after the car accident, the police did little more than stand by – at the behest of a reckless and stupid mayor and his callous police chief.

That is, unless they try to intervene to help people and get beaten up themselves.

More than 100 police officers were injured during the pogrom.

Eventually, thousands of police officers joined the action and the riots ended.

In the end, this reckless mayor’s career was over.

In 2023, three weeks after Jewish looters attacked Jews inside Israel, killing 1,400 and injuring nearly three times as many, Jews outside Israel are being attacked in cities around the world, and now in New York. In recent years, humans have been exposed to attacks like never before in history. Instead of finding themselves more protected than ever.

No, they must stay indoors.

Like Anne Frank, public breathing outdoors meant capture and death, so she was locked up in the attic for two years, but someone in the house below the attic kicked the Frank family out. He was captured anyway.

I’m inside.

Like pianist Władysław Szpilman, played by Adrien Brody in The Pianist 20 years ago, he lives in a room in Warsaw, silent and largely motionless for more than a year after his family is deported. I didn’t even talk to him. and was massacred at Treblinka.

Every day of my 62 years of life, I have thought about the blessings America has brought to the Jewish people. This was a blessing unlike any my people had ever known.

And the city, which has the largest Jewish population in the world outside of Israel, has also been a blessing.

But for now, the Jews would be better off hiding.

I can’t express in words how horrible this is.
