Two Jewish men were attacked in Crown Heights, New York in what appears to be anti-Semitic hate crimes, prompting the announcement of a reward for information leading to the capture of the perpetrators.

At this point, one can only speculate as to why these attacks happened. Plain old anti-Semitism, a response to terror in Israel or both?

The community in Crown Heights, which consists of many religious Jews, is living in fear and anticipation of additional attacks.

Police are unsure whether to call the stabbing attack a hate crime, but the fact that the assailant was wearing a mask makes it pretty obvious that it was.

As Palestinian terror runs rampant in Israel, it’s clearly spilling out into the rest of the world.
