Anti-Semitic hate incidents in America in 2015 — all of which HuffPost ignored

.

Continued from: Examples of HuffPost ignoring hate crimes against people it considers Worthless

The following hate crimes all occurred within 2015 — and as HuffPost’s own search engine proves, it ignored every one of them.

Many of these hate incidents were witnessed, and/or were documented on surveillance video. This is important to consider, given the fact that as documented here, HuffPost reflexively published on its front page proof-less allegations of hate crimes against people in its Favored groups.  Worse, as documented in our Fake hate crimes roster, many of these alleged hate crimes later turned out to be hoaxes — but HuffPost either ignored or downplayed these revelations.

(1) Jewish-owned business receives death threats by self-described members of Islamic State, by Washington Free Beacon, January 14, 2015. Excerpt:

A Washington, D.C., business has become a target for anti-Semitic threats, both verbal and digital. The threats come from individuals that identify themselves as Islamic State militants and could be coming from outside of the country.

With recent attacks in Paris that were carried out by radical Islamists has left the owner and employees working in fear. The Jewish business owner, who was not identified due to the sensitive nature of the case, said that he hopes that those calling and threatening are “just bored.” He said he worries that the harassers might want to do more.

The case has been passed back and forth between the Washington, D.C., police and the Department of Homeland Security. While the calls can be traced, Verizon has been less than helpful thus far.

(2) Jewish fraternity at UC Davis defaced with swastikas, by Emily Alpert Reyes, Los Angeles Times, February 1, 2015. Excerpt:

A Jewish fraternity at UC Davis was defaced with swastikas over the weekend, spurring outrage and accusations on the Northern California campus. The vandalism, still under investigation by police, appears to have occurred sometime overnight Friday before members of Alpha Epsilon Pi awoke Saturday and reported the crime. UC Davis officials condemned the vandalism as “an affront to us all.”

“This kind of behavior is not only repugnant and a gross violation of the values our university holds dear, it is unacceptable and must not be tolerated on our campus or anywhere else,” Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi and other UC Davis officials said in a written statement. Fraternity leaders told CBS13 in Sacramento that they believed the swastikas were painted in retaliation for the fraternity’s support for Israel. A student government body at the university called last week on the University of California Board of Regents to divest from “corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories.”

(6) Stanford’s Students of Color Coalition accused of antisemitism in student elections, by David Daoud, The Algemeiner, April 13, 2015.

A student leader at Stanford University, was asked by a campus group about how her Jewish faith would impact her actions regarding Israel in the Student Senate, prompting allegations of antisemitism and an Anti-Defamation League inquiry, a campus publication reported.

As part of her campaign for student senate, Molly Horwitz applied for as many student group endorsements as possible, since an endorsement from each group would effectively secure their members’ votes for her candidacy. The Students of Color Coalition (SOCC) endorsement is the most-sought after, due to its large size and vast influence, as well as the fact that it campaigns tirelessly for the candidates it endorses, according to the report.

(7) Jewish bus blaze evokes tension of 1991 Brooklyn riots, by Verna Dobnik and Colleen Long, AP, May 14, 2016.

For days, the charred school bus sat in front of a Jewish girls’ school in Brooklyn, its ruined hulk posing a troubling question: Has the quarter-century of peace between blacks and Jews in Crown Heights begun to fray?

Twenty five years ago this August, the neighborhood’s black residents exploded into days of rioting after a 7-year-old boy, the son of Guyanese immigrants, was accidentally struck and killed by a car in the motorcade of the leader of the Lubavitcher sect. A rabbinical student was stabbed and died. Many people were beaten. Vehicles were flipped and burned.

Those tensions were supposed to have melted away a long time ago, but last Sunday afternoon a group of boys, all black, went aboard an unlocked bus parked in front of the Bnos Chomesh Academy, set fire to the seats and ran. Flames consumed the bus in minutes.

(8) Jewish woman forced to hide from anti-Israel activists at UC-Irvine; Pro-Palestine student group dubbed violent protests a ‘success,’ justified by presence of police and IDF soldiers, by Shani Shahmoon, The Observer, May 20, 2016.

An event hosted by a pro-Israel student group ended abruptly Wednesday night as police were called to protect attendees from an angry mob that had gathered. One student who never made it inside the venue called 9-1-1 as she hid in fear from anti-Israel activists who chased her into a building on the University of California-Irvine campus.

Sophomore Eliana Kopley had just left a Holocaust-related event when she was walking toward the facility featuring a screening of “Beneath the Helmet,” a documentary about the Israel Defense Forces. As she arrived at the event hosted by Students Supporting Israel, Ms. Kopley was met by an angry crowd pounding on the doors and windows—engaged in violent chants targeting the Jewish state. “I was terrified. There is no other word to describe how I felt,” Ms. Kopley told the Haym Salomon Center.

(10) Murderer of NY Jewish jeweler arrested; NYPD nab MTA driver who purposely ran over Aron Aranbayev after getting into an argument, by Haim Lev, Israel National News, August 2, 2015.

An arrest has been made in the murder of a Jewish jeweler in Queens in June, police announced Thursday, after a lack of leads led the family to offer a reward to find the perpetrator. The New York Police Department (NYPD) arrested Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA) driver Charles Jordan, 46, of Valley Stream, Long Island on Thursday, after he was linked to surveillance footage of the murder of Aron Aranbayev. Jordan allegedly ran over Aranbayev after getting frustrated that the latter was in his way, according to the New York Daily News.

Aranbayev had just been dropped off near his Forest Hills home when Jordan ran him over in a dark-colored Dodge Magnum – on purpose. Aranbayev cracked his skull on the pavement, and died in a Jamaica hospital the next day.

(17) Jews targeted in Queens arsons: The NYPD is searching for a serial arsonist who has struck in Queens, by Fox5NY.com, December 6, 2015. Excerpt:

An arsonist targeting Jewish-owned homes in and around Forest Hills, Queens has struck again. The latest fire happened at 12:30 a.m. Sunday on 69th Road. According to the NYPD, it is the same home construction site that was set on fire in the middle of November. This time the house was destroyed.

Officials released surveillance video of the suspect believed to be responsible for the fires. All of the homes were empty when the fires started.
