nearvideo former New York state assemblyman points the finger at the left for the rise of anti-Semitic attacks
Dov Hikind, a former New York state assemblyman who was at the scene, according to the Hanukkah stabbing attack in Monsey, sounds about the violence.
Saturday stabbing during a Hanukkah celebration at a rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, the latest in a flood of anti-Jewish violence in the region, attracted cross-party condemnation. But the attack was also a political football in a matter of hours, with more on the left side to jump to show with the Finger on President Trump, in turn, inviting allegations that the Democrats, the disturbing, the anti-Semitism in their own ranks.
Anti-Semitism has long been widely used around the edges of the two ends of the political spectrum. But Trump enemies handles to suggest quickly to the area of New York attacks, the President deliberately fomented by hatred.
Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., pointed the blame trump for anti-Semitism in the United States

“Anti-Semitism is on the rise in America. And it is fired by @realDonaldTrump, the not condemn, and Trump’s lawyer, @RudyGiuliani, said just this week, he tweeted more Jewish as Soros'” Swalwell, including reference to the recent controversial comments from Rudy Giuliani.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who has Twitter the news about Israel in the past, anti-Semitic set pieces have been criticized, have retweeted Swalwell post.
But Trump has condemned the anti-Semitism. During his testimony, in response to the Monsey attack came later in the afternoon, he spoke out against bigotry against the Jews with strong words.

“We must all confront, to fight, and fight off the evil scourge of anti-Semitism” Trump said.
Trump is also the anti-Semitism condemned by the year 2018, the mass shooting at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh, which says, “anti-Semitism and the widespread persecution of the Jews is one of the ugliest and darkest features of human history.”
Earlier this month, Trump under an executive order signed that would cut Federal funding to colleges and universities that do not curb anti-Semitism against Jewish students
“This is my message to universities,” Trump said in a Hanukkah reception in the White house. “If you want to accept the enormous amount of state funding they receive each year, you must reject anti-Semitism.”
Nevertheless, the President has constantly subtly condoning, or promoting bigotry, since its a 2016 campaign accused of. He drew considerable criticism after the deadly attack on a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., for the statement there were good people on “both sides” of the conflict.
But some Democrats have tried to make the connection trump the rhetoric with anti-Semitism, even if the attacks-how in Monsey-not seem to be tied to extreme right-wing white nationalism.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., anyone who supports a controversial boycott movement against Israel, the first responded on Saturday, the attack with a non-political tweet about violence and hatred, but followed him with a message, the fault of the President.
“He force people materials the trouble & misguided hate. Instead of leading, with compassion, with the he gas lights easily and laughs,” Tlaib said.
After a shootout in a kosher supermarket in Jersey City earlier this month, Tlaib tweeted “This is heartbreaking. The white supremacy kills,” although the suspects were black. Later, she deleted the post.
Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., called the violence in Monsey “sad, but predictable,” Retweets a post-anti-Semitism ascribe to Trump management, and add a comment that the President “has made that unacceptable behavior is acceptable.”
On the day after the Monsey attack, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio at least some of the debt on Trump and the messaging, ” which occurs from Washington,” in a Fox News.
Brad Blakeman, former deputy assistant to President George W. Bush, took de Blasio to task in an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & co.”
“Shame on the mayor,” Blakeman said, later adding, “we should stop the blame, and you begin to act against you.”
Left-wing activists and writers joined the trump card in the debt.
Ariel Gold, national co-Director of the organization Code Pink, reacted to the weekend violence, by tweeting, “This is the trump card, “America”, and wonder if the President would “apologize for his repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes and dog whistles, and not commit?”
Gold also asked if Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, the Jews would “speak to Papa” on it.
Journalist Mairav Zonszein was even more direct in linking the recent violence on the President.
“Just to be clear, I Trump think the White house is directly responsible for the increasing violent attacks on Orthodox Jewish people in America,” she said.
Former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a Democrat, on the accused’s own party to have blinders on when it comes to attacks against the Jewish people.
“In the Democratic party there is a double standard. The hatred, anti-Semitism, the exudes from the inside to the left, you hear nothing, you hear very little,” Hikind told Fox News on Monday morning. “The mayor of the city of New York has continued to be called, the hate comes from the right. All the hate in New York is coming from the left.”
While the political affiliation of the suspects in the recent cases are unclear, white nationalism is not ideology, driving either from Jersey City or Monsey attacks. Grafton, Thomas, pleads with five counts of attempted murder and has pleaded not guilty in connection with the weekend stabbing spree, is black.
Trump thanked Hikind Monday for his comments.
New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz appearance, went on in a “Fox & Friends”, calls on Democrats like de Blasio, for not to recognize bigotry in their own ranks.
“If you don’t face a problem, if you don’t take it seriously, it grows ends, and that is what we have really seen in New York,” she said.
