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
