Last night, New Yorkers, Israelis and Jews once again fell victim to an attack. An attack that some may even draw similarities to the Har Nof massacre Israelis were horrified to wake up to only 2 short weeks ago.
At about 1:40 am a man entered the Chabad-Lubavitch Center in Brooklyn, NY, and attempted to kill a man by stabbing him in the head. When NYPD responded, they were threatened with a knife while attempting to subdue him and shot him to death.
In the initial reports, terrorism is not suspected, rather bipolarism and a history of mental illness is to blame, although reports claim he screamed “Kill the Jews” in the act, so draw your own conclusions.
What we do know is that the attack ended just like Har Nof. Cops killed the attacker.
Now here’s a list of what we won’t see happen:
- State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki calling for an inquiry into why live bullets were used.
- Backwards ambiguous headlines
- A call for both sides to exercise restraint while assigning equal blame
- An emergency UN session
- Sad pictures of the attacker’s family
- An article from The New York Times downplaying the killer’s actions
Even with the additional scrutiny police in America are under lately thanks to the whole Ferguson thing, none of these things will happen. Because Israel is special.
It’s all part of the long list of things other countries can do without blinking an eye, but when Israel does it, receives worldwide condemnation. Just today the UK stripped a man of citizenship for terror ties. When Israel did the same thing, it’s a war crime.
The following however, is what you MAY actually see (h/t @).
That’s right folks, the police shot the black man.
