NEW YORK (VINnews) — A “Day of Hate” is being planned for this Shabbos by a group of Neo-Nazi antisemites. It was first reported by the Chicago Police Department to its local Jewish community, and now authorities in New York and Florida are warning their Jewish communities to be vigilant.
Last month, an anti-Semitic group based in Iowa designated Feb. 25 as a “day of hate,” and other white supremacist and hate groups have since said they plan to participate, according to David Goldenberg, the Midwest regional director of the Anti-Defamation League. One of the organizations behind the plot if the Goyim Defense League (GDL).
Chicago police have been urging Jewish communities to be extra vigilant. “At this time, there is no actionable intelligence,” the department said in a statement. “We continue to actively monitor the situation.”
The NYPD has now also released a similar notice to the Chicago PD, warning New York Jewish communities to be extremely vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
In addition, the O-U has sent a message to its network of shuls, encouraging them to be vigilant and stay in contact with local law enforcement to request enhanced security. They said they have been in contact with the DHS and FBI about the threats.
In addition, police in South Florida sent this message to Jewish residents: “Over the past several weeks a handful of known antisemitic, white supremacist, and neo-Nazi groups have encouraged their followers to participate in a “National Day of Hate” this coming Saturday, Feb. 25. The event is meant as a call to action for followers to conduct in-person propaganda efforts across the US. The antisemitic activity will likely include in-person demonstrations, flyering efforts, stickering efforts, banner drops, and vandalism.
“Two of the organizations behind this initiative – GDL and NSM – have a footprint in South Florida. At this time, we are not aware of any specific, credible threats of violence to the Jewish community as it pertains to this report; however, we encourage you to be vigilant for non-violent in-person demonstrations, flyering, stickering, laser projections and/or banner drops.”
According to one report, organizers are asking antisemites who engage in the “Day of Hate” to post their activity online, in order to create a compendium of the evil behavior and spread the hate.
Their mentor Haman also thought the month of Adar would be a good time to have a National Day of Hate against the jews. Let us daven that these creeps have the same “uplifting” downfall as their predecessor Haman.
We should declare a National Day of Love to counteract this.
Invite someone to your Seuda, reach out to a lonely person. Give extra money to your local Kupas Tzedaka, treat your family with extra love.
Don’t banish darkness with sticks, do it with extra light.
this could very easily explode into violence.” ה’ ישמור” why is it legal to post on line? free speech to encourage hate on one group! imagine if the target was blacks! This is so dangerous and it should be prohibited by law.
Perhaps everyone named for a Shoah victim should make this Shabbos an open Kiddush H-shem- via learning, bikur cholim, Tomche Shabbos and invite news media to contrast hate versus remembrance. Demand police be out in demonstrable fashion. Haters will seek verbal confrontation and try to provoke violence that can be filmed. Be smart- be prepared, be safe. And stop voting for politicians that support policies that allows for society to spiral out of control. It is just such chaos that feeds haters and people look for scapegoats. Learn from history. LEARN.
The bowing to the BLM riots and mayhem by Democrats , cowardly GOP , Jewish organizations , brought this about. Of course , the 1st target are Jews.
My shul will have at least five men locked and loaded
I would love for them to declare a “Day of Hate against Blacks”! Would like to count their survivors.
So strange that they don’t protest at mosques….almost as if we’re perceived as soft targets.
Isn’t it time to excercise our rights under the Second Amendment
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.?
Is this against the Jews specifically? Or anyone that’s not a white gentile American.
my fellow Jews – arm yourselves safely and responsibly! Pray, but don’t neglect to prepare for war.
I’m sorry, but there is something outright farcical in having so called white supremacists parroting the likes of Kanye West .
Can’t make this stuff up….
All a bunch of Antifa, BLM, Liberal Biden voters.
Hey I though the OU did hechsherim?
I hope they don’t c make poster of what out Rabbis said about goyim
One good one is – when you hike you can’t walk in front of a got he will ambush you and kill you. To be truthful, I have trouble with all these statements and the are many of them. Just asking??
Get ready to fight!!
I am sure ADL will take care of it, its not like nation of islan or BLM
Hopefully they try Harvey Weinstein’s or Mr Kamala Harris’s shuls, as they’d get taken down by the heavy security.
NYT covering this as “once again, Orthodox Jews provoke their friendly neighbors into violence by infringing upon neighborhood decorum with prayers”
this is not OK and should not happen let history repeat its self from Haman
Great idea! 1 day of hate instead of 365 days! Brilliant
You can’t be dismissive of gentiles and expect them to adore you in return.
We can’t run away from our responsibilities as Jewish people who have endorsed many ridiculous quotes and sayings that belittle and often demonize gentiles all in the name of God. Rebbusai we cannot continue and pretend any longer that we aren’t any part of the problem.
Oh Lord help me Love in the face of this awful hate against God’s chosen people. May they be forgiven as they know not what they do.
Every generation they will come up against us. It does not matter how many Holocaust memorials,documentaries, testimonies and pictures exist. Every generation they will come to hurt us and may Hashem save us from the evil people.
Might just be time to sell that leisure home in Miami or Monticello and find something in Israel. Sounds similar to 1935 in Frankfurt.
