North Hollywood Chabad threatened

A man holding a machete, with his face covered by a keffiyeh posed in front of the North Hollywood Chabad Friday afternoon, and snapped a selfie of himself

The community was already on edge after last months attack on Orthodox women walking to services.

Rabbi Nachman Abend reported the incident to the police,  “Whenever these things happen it’s a wake up call for everybody and it puts everybody on edge to a certain extent. But we don’t live in fear and we have to continue moving on.”

This is just one of many recent incidents targetting Jewish community institutions, spurred on by the lack of civility  on both the far right and the far left.

A suspect has been arrested.  David Brener, 49, was arrested at 11 p.m. Friday by the LAPD's Major Crimes Division.

in the midst of all this right wing anti-Semitism lately let's not forget that the anti-Semitism from the radical elements of the Muslim world is also ever present. especially when they start feeling like those before mention right wing anti-Semites might be stealing their thunder and the media attention they're always clamoring for.
