New York Muslim Charged w/Hate Crime After Violent Beating of Jewish Man (VIDEO)

Jewish lefties try to blame the rise in anti-Semitism on President Trump. Here’s a typical example of the violent anti-Semitism they brought to this country.

Police say a livery driver beat a 62-year-old man as he walked to synagogue on Sunday morning in Brooklyn.

Physically and emotionally scarred, Lipa Schwartz described the frightening moment he was attacked in broad daylight in the middle of the street in Borough Park.

“All of a sudden ‘boom!’ I tried to protect myself, run away. I fell. He come again on me,” said Schwartz.

Schwartz was on his way to service, which he attends every day, when he said the driver jumped out of his cab and started attacking him. The savage beating happened on 13th Ave by 46th Street. The victim’s holy items were scattered on the ground.

Another member of the Hasidic community tried to help - the attacker then chased after him.

An arrest was made quickly on the scene. Eyewitness News is told Farrukh Afzal from Staten Island drove for a car service in Brooklyn, and has been arrested numerous times.

Schwartz says Afzal yelled ‘Allah’ during the assault.

“I went to him when he was handcuffed, ‘what did I do to you that you tried to murder me? Tell me.’ He didn’t answer back,” added Schwartz.

Schwartz says he has no idea why the man attacked him, but says he thinks it was because he is Jewish.

Then again Afzal seems to have a history of violent assaults.

Farrukh has an extensive police record of violent assaults, with a reported eight previous arrests. The Staten Island Advance reported last year that he was arrested for chasing a neighbor with a shovel and damaging the victim’s car after the two got into an argument about money.

The second obvious question is why was he on the loose. The first obvious question is why was he in this country?
