      A 33 year old man was sucker-punched in the back of the head while waiting on a street corner.  (Perp arrested.  Enrique Gerena, age 32, charged with hate crime.)

      A nine-year-old boy was walking home and punched repeatedly by a teenage stranger.

      A man was attacked by two men while walking home from his place of worship.

      A twelve-year-old boy was knocked down and beaten by several men.

      What do they have in common?  All are recognizably Jewish:  they are members of the Orthodox community in NYC and wear distinctive clothes.

      I am trying to understand why some things go viral (“White woman calls cops on nonwhite person doing nothing wrong” seems to be a meme embraced by social media, one that triggers outrage) whereas Jew-beating is, eh, nothing to see here; no one cares.

      My suspicion is that no one cares because Jew-haters and Jew-beaters come from all walks of life and all demographics.  They are whites, Hispanics, blacks, Muslims.  They include Hitler-lovers, Farrakhan-lovers, Marx-lovers, and Abbas-lovers.   So no one speaks up about it, because everyone has friends who support it.  Confronting it is uncomfortable.

      Easier just to demonize the Anti-Defamation League for daring to talk about it.

      This is a problem.

      That and Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians has wasted all of our sympathy for them – unfair but believable.
