On Monday, a teenage individual made threatening anti-Semitic remarks to a nine-year-old boy on the KIPP AMP Middle School Playground in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights.
Witnesses reported that the teen brandished a knife and yelled “I will kill you, Jew” as well as “Heil Hitler,” which was directed at the child’s mother. This incident has been reported to police and is currently under investigation.
A hateful teen threatened a young boy with a knife and yelled “I will kill you, Jew” in the latest antisemitic attack in the Big Apple, police and law enforcement sources said.
The sickening scene unfolded at a playground at KIPP AMP Middle School and MS 354 Monday evening in Crown Heights, according to the NYPD and the victim’s mother, who said her daughter was also targeted in the attack.
“My kids were shaking, they were crying,” Chaya Sundroy, who came to the US from Israel 10 years ago, said. “They asked why – we didn’t do nothing to him, why they say that, why they want to killed us. They were really, really scared about it.”
Police and sources said the man also screamed “Heil Hitler” at the boy, but Sundroy, who was at the park with her six children, said that was actually directed at her daughter.
During the attack, several people also shouted “Allah Akbar” in front of the children, according to Sundroy and police sources.
The recent attack against Jewish children in the United States is deeply disturbing and unacceptable. Reports indicate that these minors were threatened with violence while people around them shouted “Allah Akbar”.
This serves as yet another reminder of the dangers posed by open immigration policies, which have allowed terrorists and their sympathizers to infiltrate our country.
The concept of citizenship and the American dream used to represent something more than what it has become today. Chaya Sundroy, a mother whose son was targeted by a group of teens, recounted how her daughter was later subjected to an anti-Semitic comment from a teen displaying a knife.
Mrs Sundroy stated, “When the guy took out the knife I saw it…It was very close to me. I saw it and heard it”.
Although this incident occurred after school hours, no one from the middle school was present at the time of this attack.
Unfortunately, such abhorrent acts of hate have become increasingly common since Hamas attacked Israel; Jews continue to be targeted because of their faith alone.
