"Shawn Carlson in four chance you know they go and this is the take away on Saturday night a man entered the home of his CITIC rabbi in Muncie New York during a Hanukkah celebration and stab five people and this came just days after New York City mayor bill de Blasio issued a response to the city's rise in anti semitism that's after a number of anti semitic assaults had been reported in a matter of days and the mayor spoke out again after the stabbing in Muncie there's a deep deep connection between the Muncie community and York City in particular Brooklyn the attack on that community is an attack on this community is an attack on all of us we feel it that way his most recent attacks came less than a month after six people were killed when a gunman targeted a kosher grocery store in New Jersey and a little more than a year after eleven people were shot and killed at the tree of life in Pittsburgh in the last few years the anti defamation league has reported that incidents of anti semitism have reach some of the highest number since they began recording them three decades ago joining us now is rabbi David Niedermann he's the president of the United Jewish organizations of Williamsburg and north Brooklyn rabbi thanks so much for being here thank you also with us is Rachel Glick house a journalist and partner manager for ProPublica's documenting hate project Hey Rachel thanks for being here to share your insights thank you for having me so rabbi you work closely with people living both in New Jersey and New York communities who have seen some these recent attacks what have you been hearing from people I only hear fear for their safety that children safety and the safety of all citizens is very scary they go out am I'm not sure I am I coming back but the recent one what show did serial eight ugly face of anti semitism is no longer you met the street I hate you and I do something but I'm ready to come in to your home when a when you perform a religious ceremony at home and come in with a butcher knife with the intention premeditated intention to go and kill this is something that every human being has to stand up and say this is much much more we have to stop at the right now eight is no place and racial we've seen as we mentioned a number of anti semitic incidents here in New York City maybe not at the same level of lines that happened in Jersey city or OR Muncie can you walk us through some of those incidents here in New York basically over the past year we've seen a series of assaults her at S. men's incidents in the street particularly in Brooklyn and there have been a series of them going on and on that led up to a new series of incidents of the past couple of weeks that included assaults in Brooklyn and obviously that incidents we discussed so these violent incidents in Muncie in Jersey city didn't come out of nowhere and Robert you mentioned feeling unsafe in your own community how does that feel for someone living in in what is that the largest Jewish community in the world outside of of Israel be safe feels terrible because remember we are we are coming from we this command has built itself up on the ashes of the Holocaust coming to the United States the country of freedom we know will be will be free and we'll be able to reestablish our Jewish communities here in New York and has worked for seventy five years and now it is unfortunately the older people say they're afraid if this is not the start of something very very sure is I don't want to call it by its name so people in the community to experience that we know that we are persecuted mine not at the fear for their lives the future of their children and grandchildren and unfortunately anti semitism it's it's not new even here in New York City so can you tell us Rachel if you have a sense from your research of why we're seeing an explosion of this violence lately I honestly really can't tell you why I wish we had some that are reporting around us particularly in New York City to understand why we've just seen this up tech particularly in violence what I will tell you is that nationally what we see is the majority of anti semitic incidents the ones we know about that are documented through the FBI data through news reports is that the majority of them are vandals awesome so they tend to be non violent swastikas damaging synagogues those those types of things where I was New York City tends to be an out wire with and has Medicaid incidents that tend to be more violent in nature other more specific Jewish communities that are are being targeted is over other ones I I'm not sure it's easy to say that but what I will say is that Pacific an orthodox communities tend to be the ones that are targeted for physical violence because of their appearance so that's why synagogues around the country of all types are targeted in and vandalism incidents but when it comes to people it tends to be those communities because they're more visible and and rabbi aside from the violent attacks you mentioned that these kinds of things are are things that you've experienced for years and you've been you've been seeing or feeling for years can you talk about how anti semitism is taking shape in the communities you work in live in aside from some say violet tax so you've been in the newspapers you have been seeing so many times how the de humanize the orthodox and Hasidic community and this just escalates you know it takes time it escalates it gets if we we don't have people everybody laypeople government at the dinner table St at the restaurant people just say you cannot discriminate and not talk down and definitely not widely delights of anybody Hey the guy's one is hate against all letters understand that so fine I'm more visible more visible and therefore I am not the target but let us understand anti semitism means anti Jewish and anti religion that is not what our founding fathers well looking for the United States and they have a of a United States to look like that's not what democracy is and that should be stopped but all walks of life and loss have to be created to deal with this violent why you'll and anti semitism laws have to be updated they still worship has to be protected go all over Europe you'll see police and they're protected this goes on for years here unfortunately we see how the deadly this becomes government has a responsibility what we want from from government six safe streets clean my garbage that's the two basic needs stop we won the first thing is to be safe safe in the street and safe at home and safe to practice my religion what are people saying in your in your communities about what they would want to say the state or local or federal government to do you ask before what is the what is the issue is behind that and the answer to that is we don't know and is the responsibility of a task force federal state and city to come up and say study these fast let me hit don't they have it's time for blue ribbons commissions get get to the fact you have all the data on fortune you will share that with us for many quests I'm not the answer the appropriately you have the information it's it's your responsibility of government of all levels to work together and stop stop this violent violent dangers attacks against the Jewish community and any other community and freedom of information request when you say for a quest getting admission from from the government about these kinds of things yes so Rachel speaking of data when we when we look at the perpetrators of these crimes are there any links that we can drawl between them I'm I don't think so you know one of the problems we have in general is that the data is just so hard to come by to have a complete picture more than half of hate crime victims don't report to police so that is already a huge amount of people that we simply don't know about incidents we don't know about we know that not every police department reports their data to the FBI meaning that our national data is really lacking and also what we've discovered through our project is that some please just don't do a good job tracking these types of crimes or just storing the data internally so by the time it gets to the FBI those numbers are incorrect so being able to even have a sense of the scope of these crimes and the perpetrators is really difficult just based on the fact that the data is lacking so yeah just so what Rachel said is very troubling and and and what has to happen is a law that everybody has to report that to the every as I say you know everything has to be a report that and the reason why people don't report let us understand because they they see it as a revolving door not leading to anything because you never got to get back to the formation what happens to the people who perpetrate book rack you want to stop crying you have to get to empower the people to know that when they report something it is worth something it means something and might save their or their neighbors life rabbi David Niedermann is the president of United Jewish organizations of Williamsburg and north Brooklyn and Rachel click houses a partner manager for ProPublica's documenting hate project next will speak with the rabbi at the tree of life in Pittsburgh if you remember they dealt with an anti semitic attack on their place of worship last year so he's.

military attacked their villages sexually assaulting women and killing thousands the military claimed those attacks were in the name of counterterrorism and that they were attempting to stop a row hinge insurgent group Human Rights leaders throughout the world have condemned Myanmar leader on sons to chief for not speaking out against the military's actions and stopping the atrocities earlier this month suji testified at the international court of justice and with a global audience denied accusations of genocide against our country fees then mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security in our country when you are assessing the intent of those who attempted to deliver the rebellion surely under the circumstances genocidal intent cannot be the only hypothesis we got a chance to talk with Nate sand when he's over a hundred in exile and the co founder of the free Rominger coalition he was out the international court of justice at the Hague earlier this month and again my telling us about the scene there there were a lot more than two hundred range of get that they're all settled there cold and all cpasbien second day there were protests by the way if you will he get green my serve or inside the cold on the second day of the week could see a clear picture that she is not going to stand for justice and you know that she was defining their Melek tree and she has denied and dismissed day credible ripple all rippled all day you in fact finding mission and also she has do you deny and dismissed the genocide yeah hi in her testimony su kyi said that the military attacks against or hanja in her words she called in counter insurgency operations against the archon range at salvation army not neck to genocide what do you make of that defense yeah use misleading but if we talk about the row he injured do you know side we have to start from there nineteen seventy eight before nineteen seventy eight at writing down what I regard as a force you dizzy all she should be recognized and it was also you should attend a group in New in dharma and in nineteen ninety two the the Malek tree region impose the server restriction gaze the routine yeah in the same like a you know that apartheid in South Africa reject cannot move from one place to another even the three full minute walking distance need that special permission from there and other bedding

harassment all the sexual abuse every do phasing so we are we are targeted that is why you two did you are seeing more than a billion Rohit Jack in Bangladesh the intent is clear we should say to that ang San Suu Kyi she doesn't have control of the military that that of course as you know Myanmar has as a long history of cruise and and military run government and only recently in the past few years as that began to change and and civilians have been allowed to have some more control over civil society is repercussions on that she could face if if she were to denounce the actions the military's taken against the region I think it is not true now because the military is always claiming that you're not always discuss with dead on some some G. before they do anything so even like you know before they lost their these guys so call up the IRS operation in two thousand sixteen and the two thousand seventeen they had the reading so it is well known to the on the wall and also that they are cooperating and they are looking to get we're gonna take a short break but we'll have more on one row hinge in exile story stick with us we're continuing our conversation with mace and win the co founder of the free real hundred coalition about Nobel Peace Prize laureate and the leader of Myanmar on sons who cheat and her recent testimony at the international court of justice moving on to a tongue son su chi's relationship with over a hundred people what was your relationship with with of the Russian jet while she was still a political prisoner when she was fighting for democracy did she
