NJ Jews Attacked as Anti-Semitic Hate Crimes Spike
Three Jews were attacked in New Jersey this Friday in what people are calling a hate crime. Elsewhere, in New York City, anti-Semitic hate crimes have quadrupled since last year. This is a dark time for God’s people.
From Daily Caller. Three Jews in Lakewood, New Jersey, were severely injured Friday night by an attacker who allegedly made anti-Semitic comments to the arresting officers.
The suspect, Dion Marsh, was arrested the same evening at his home and is charged with three counts of attempted murder, carjacking and bias intimidation, according to the Lakewood Police Department. Marsh is alleged to have made anti-Semitic comments upon arrest in a statement released by the Anti-Defamation League….
I applaud the efforts of law enforcement in Lakewood and Ocean County for swiftly apprehending the individual believed to have committed a series of serious criminal acts last night, including multiple violent offenses. Tammy and I pray for the full recovery of all victims.
