Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
EDIT: Apparently the report was overwrought – by far. The Jerusalem Post says it was nothing more than a brawl. So while my original question stands, the data it stands on is rubbish. My apologies!
I am keenly aware that, as been very ably presented here on Ricochet, there is no statistical support for violent anti-semitism in the US rising above the levels of background noise.
Is this argument a bit like Obama’s pitch that since terrorism kills far fewer people than do car accidents, we should ignore small terror numbers? I ask this because yesterday there was an old-style Pogrom in Ukraine. And while a few battered and bruised people may not amount to much numerically, from a qualitative perspective, thugs hunting down members of an ethnic group in the streets certainly seems troubling to me.Published in
