Black Nationalist Stabbing in Synagogue Wounds 5, Including Children

We didn't get a serious conversation about black nationalist anti-Semitism after the mass shooting at a Kosher supermarket in Jersey City. Can we get one after this latest incident?

Multiple people were stabbed Saturday night in a synagogue.

According to reports, a black male entered Rabbi Rottenburg’s Shul with his face covered by a scarf, and pulled out a machete. He pulled off the cover and stabbed 5 people. One of the victims was stabbed in the chest.

According to reports, 15 victims were transported to the hospital, but 5 were ultimately hospitalized. 1 victim is in critical condition.

At approximately midnight, the NYPD stopped a vehicle matching the description at W 177 Street and 7 Avenue in Harlem. A suspect from the vehicle was taken into custody. Police would not confirm for certain that the suspect in custody is the perpetrator of the stabbing.

Apparently two of the victims were the Rabbi's young children.

A witness close to the events told The Jerusalem Post that two of the injured were two of Rabbi Rottenburg's young children. They are in stable condition.

Meanwhile meaningless statements are being issued about the evils of hatred, but nothing about the ideology behind this anti-Semitism.
