Examples of HuffPost ignoring anti-Semitic hate incidents in America in 2014-2015

.

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

The following anti-Semitic hate incidents 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 publishes 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.

Preface: A 2015 ADL audit showed a dramatic increase in anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. in 2014; “a particularly violent year for Jews”

Audit: In 2014 Anti-Semitic Incidents rose 21 percent across the U.S. in a “particularly violent year for Jews”, by the Anti-Defamation League, March 30, 2015. Excerpt:

The total number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States increased by 21 percent in 2014 in a year marked by a violent anti-Semitic shooting attack targeting Jewish community buildings in Kansas and anti-Jewish expressions linked to the war in Gaza.

The Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, issued today, counted a total of 912 anti-Semitic incidents across the U.S. during the 2014 calendar year. This represents a 21 percent increase from the 751 incidents reported during the same period in 2013, and is the first time in nearly a decade of declines where the overall number of incidents has substantially risen.

The proof that HuffPost ignored this story: A January 10, 2017 search using HuffPost’s own search engine of the string “ADL 2014 Anti-Semitic Incidents Rose 21 Percent” returned zero results.


(1) August 2014, Miami, FL: Days after swastikas and pro-Hamas graffiti was found on a Miami synagogue and nearby homes, a rabbi was murdered in the street

On July 27-28, 2014, anti-Semitic and pro-Hamas graffiti was found on Congregation Torah Ve’emunah and several homes in northwest Miami, FL. Here is a local news report:

HuffPost completely ignored these stories.

Two weeks later, on August 8, 2014, a rabbi walking on his way to the synagogue was murdered in the street.

Two men sought in fatal shooting of Orthodox rabbi in Northeast Miami-Dade, by Ann Choi, Miami Herald, August 9, 2014. Excerpts:

Rabbi Raskin, 60

The shooting victim, Joseph Raksin, was walking eastbound on Northeast 175th Street and Eighth Court at about 9 a.m. when he was confronted by two young men. Following an altercation, Raksin was shot by one of the men, police said.

It’s unclear how many shots were fired at Raksin. But the New York rabbi’s critical wounds prompted authorities to airlift him to the Ryder Trauma Center, where he later died. A funeral is planned for Sunday afternoon.

HuffPost’s search engine proves it virtually ignored this story.

A January 6, 2017 search using the string “Rabbi Joseph Raksin” shows that HuffPost ignored the story until August 12, and then, only posted a Reuters wire story — but not on its front page.

Activists Say Rabbi Slaying Was Hate Crime, by Reuters (via Huffington Post), August 12, 2014.

Thus, to anyone who gets their news from HuffPost’s front page, they would have no idea that Rabbi Raskin was murdered, or that it occurred only days after a string of anti-Semitic, pro-Hamas graffiti was posted in the area.

Instead, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page in the three days after Miami Herald broke the story, on August 10-12, 2014:

(2) January 2015, Washington, DC: Jewish business owner received death threats by ISIS terrorists

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.

(3) February 2015, Davis, CA: Jewish fraternity at the University of California – Davis was defaced with swastikas

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.”

A Jewish family in California has been gripped with fear after discovering their property was defaced with swastikas during the Passover holiday.

“In Jewish history, [swastikas] mean someone wants to kill us,” Dahan explained to KSWB. According to Dahan, the family had recently moved to the United States from Israel to provide his daughters a better life. Local reporter Dan Haggerty tweeted photos of the attack, adding that the couple’s three daughters currently sleep in one room – while their concerned father keeps a knife under his bed.

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.

(6) May 2015, Brooklyn, NY: Black mob burned a Jewish girls’ school bus

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.

(7) August 2015, Queens, NY: Jewish jeweler murdered in car-ramming attack
(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.

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.

Five other suspected arson fires happened in November and October within a few blocks of the latest fire – all at construction sites, police said. A community of Bukharian Jews have been knocking down smaller homes and building so-called McMansions in the area. The sect of Jews is from Central Asia.

Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a large number of them have immigrated into the United States and many have settled in the Forest Hills area. Officials released surveillance video of the suspect believed to be responsible for the fires. All of the homes were empty when the fires started.

The search is on in New Castle County, Delaware, for vandals who caused a lot of damage at a Jewish cemetery there.  The Machzikey Hadas Cemetery is small, but very important to loved ones.

The damage was discovered by neighbors Sunday morning. 18 stones were pushed over. One was broken, along with smashed pots and other artifacts.  […]

There is a lot of history in the graveyard. Some of the damaged stones have been here for more than a hundred years.

Addendum: February 2017 report reveals that anti-Semitism is at the highest level ever recorded

Anti-Semitism at highest level on record; Latest figures show anti-Semitism rose 36 percent in 2016, with more than twice as many incidents as four years ago, by Stephen Oryszczuk, Times of Israel, February 2, 2017. Excerpt:

Anti-Semitism in the UK reached “unprecedented” levels in 2016, after a rise of 36 percent in the number of incidents.

Following Thursday’s release of its annual figures, the Community Security Trust (CST) said there were now more than twice as many anti-Semitic incidents per month than four years ago, with the level of hatred eclipsing that seen during the Gaza War in 2014.

While charity bosses said incidents were now far more likely to be reported, they were nevertheless left gobsmacked by the huge and sustained increase, with 1,309 incidents reported last year – the highest on record.

This compares to 960 incidents in 2015 and 1,182 the year before, when Israel launched military action against militant groups in the Gaza Strip, provoking a strong backlash against Jewish communities across the world, something the charity called a “trigger event”.
