African American attacks on Jews are on the rise, with incitement by the likes of Farakkhan serving as motivation.

On December 12, 2019 ABC news reported "Security video confirms that a police shootout in Jersey City, New Jersey, with a pair of rifle-wielding suspects who allegedly killed a detective and three others was part of a rapid series of crimes, including a deliberate attack on a Jewish deli, authorities said."

Rabbi David Niederman, president of the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg and North Brooklyn, a Satmar Hasidic group, said that two of the victims killed in the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket were Orthodox Jewish. He identified them as 33-year-old Mindel Ferencz, the wife of the deli owner and mother of five, and 24-year-old Moshe Deutsch, a Yeshiva student...

The suspects were identified as David Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50, Grewel said.

Both Anderson and Graham are believed to be followers of the Black Israelites, a group that espouses hatred toward Jews..."

Dov Hikind, founder or Americans Against Antisemitism wrote "As Jewish bodies were still laying in cold blood after being murdered by terrorists a reporter of Americans Against Antisemitism captured spontaneous anti-Semitic tirades blaming Jews for their own murder and people cheering on!" See video here.

Here are some of the comments from the video:

One bystander says- "I am no blaming nobody / another bystander responds - "I am: I blame the Jews cause we never had a shooting like this until they came. If this had been the other way around they would be kiling us and everybody who is standing right here know that. Cause if this had been the other way around they would be killing us right now. Look how black people act. We can't do it to them? They don't give a f*** about us. My children is stuck at school because of Jew Shenanigans.  They all the problem because if they ain't come to Jersey City this s*** would never go on. People's kids are scared. People's kids are stuck at school. Take that shit somewhere else [referring to dead bodies still there]. [addressing Jewish reporter] It was your kind that did it here right? Yeah, you know. And four you all dead right? Four of your people that were dead right? If they was dead, they got shot dead, that's great! Get the damn Jews the f*** out of here. Get these f*** Jews, get the Jews out of Jersey City! "

On November 12, 2019 reported about the rise of African American attacks in New York  "On Friday night, surveillance video captured a man throwing a brick through the window of a Hasidic girls’ school in Crown Heights. On the same night in the Borough Park neighborhood, at least three identifiably Orthodox men were punched by assailants. Also in Borough Park, multiple Orthodox Jews in Borough Park had eggs thrown at them over the weekend.

Antisemitic incidents in the city have increased significantly this year, according to data from the New York Police Department. Through September, there have been 163 reported incidents, up from 108 over the same period last year — an increase of 50 percent. Antisemitic incidents make up a majority of reported hate crimes in New York City."

The rise of African American antisemitism is caused by incitement by some important African American community leaders such as Louis Farrakhan. On July 17 1984, Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, a group with tens of thousands of African American followers across America said that "Hitler was a very great man." 

On April 16, 2019 Jack Crowe wrote in the National Review "Nation of Islam founder and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan defended Representative Ilhan Omar’s glib description of the September 11 attacks Monday by dismissing the attacks as nothing more than a false-flag operation designed to draw the U.S. into Middle Eastern conflicts...The tweet expresses Farrakhan’s support for Omar, who has received an onslaught of criticism from Republican lawmakers and conservative pundits for using the phrase “some people did something” to describe the World Trade Center attacks, which killed more than 3,000 Americans.

Farrakhan has previously blamed a cabal of highly placed Jewish government officials for helping to execute the attacks.

“There were many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks,” he said in 2015."

Omar, who has been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks on numerous occasions since taking office, continued to enjoy the support of fellow freshman representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan..."

On March 25, 2018 Karol Markowitz  wrote in the NYPost that Women's March Founders Tamika Mallory,Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez  defended Farrakhan "Liberals’ willful blindness to the anti-Semitism raging on the left is a dangerous game. Recently the national co-chair of the Women’s March, Tamika Mallory, attended a Nation of Islam event in which Louis Farrakhan called Jews his “enemy” and held them responsible for “this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.” Mallory had previously posted a photo of herself with Farrakhan and praised him as the “GOAT” or “greatest of all time” in her caption. When Mallory finally responded to critics, she cast herself as a victim and defended Farrakhan. Fellow Women’s March co-chairs Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez also defended Farrakhan..."

Liberal's refusal to condemn or even to admit African American antisemitism shows that today liberal ideology itself has antisemitic nuances. Deborah Lipstadt wrote in Israel Hayom: "Anti-Semitism from the far-Left tends to be the province of (largely white, but also minorities who are) ultra-progressives who demonize Jews as colonialists and oppressors who shapeshift just enough out of their fair Jewish skin to benefit from white privilege."
