Five Jews Stabbed in Rabbi's Home in Monsey, Suburb Near NYC. Suspect in Custody; Demographic Data Withheld

There have been numerous, including murderous, attacks on Jews in the NYC area in the past month. In Jersey City, NJ, Jews were killed merely for being Jewish. 

After  these disturbing attacks, authorities typically withhold demographic data on the suspects, even if they are in custody. 

We are told if the suspects are male or female, and their age. But not their ethnicity. 

When this data is discovered, it often transpires that attackers are African American. 

Clearly, there is a problem of anti-Semitism among African Americans, and clearly the powers that be are avoiding discussing that problem. 

It is so much easier to lay all blame for anti-Semitism on Poles, on Christians, on "white trash." 

This obscuring of important realities, realities that involve life and death, is criminal.
