Ilhan Omar, RashidaTlaib, Louis Farrakhan and the Democrat Party of Jew hatred have blood on their hands.

The Left has made New York dangerous for Jews. Democrat authorities are complicit to these antisemitic assaults, since they are being perpetrated by their supporters and constituents. President Trump must intervene in this crisis before someone is killed.

Grafton Thomas: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Grafton Thomas was named as the suspect accused of stabbing multiple Jewish people with a large knife at a Monsey, New York rabbi’s home during Hanukkah celebrations in Rockland County, New York. It was the latest in a series of attacks against Jewish people in New York.

Witnesses described a horrific scene in which the suspect, his face shielded partially with a scarf, knocked on Orthodox Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg’s door and then unleashed mayhem by pulling a machete-style knife out of a case. People threw furniture at him to ward off the attack, which unfolded on the evening of December 28, 2019.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the attack occurred at what is called Rabbi Rottenberg’s Shul. Ramapo police chief Brad Weidel said in a press conference that five people were stabbed at the residence. Two of the victims remained hospitalized on Sunday. The rabbi’s son was among those wounded. The knife was the “size of a broomstick,” a witness told Lohud.

Grafton Thomas is 37 and lives in Greenwood Lake, New York, which is about 20 miles away from Monsey in Orange County, New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo said Sunday, “This is violence spurred by hate. It is mass violence and I consider this an act of domestic terrorism. Let’s call it what it is.” He said there have been at least 13 anti-Semitic attacks in New York state since December 8.

Some media outlets reported the suspect’s name as Thomas Grafton or Thomas E. Grafton, but public records reveal it to be Grafton E. Thomas. He was arraigned Sunday afternoon in Ramapo town court on five counts of attempted murder and one count of burglary. Justice Rhoda Schoenberger ordered Thomas held on $5 million bail, Ramapo Town Supervisor Michael Specht tweeted. Schoenberger ordered Thomas to return to court January 3.

News cameras captured the suspect being walked out of the NYPD’s 32nd Precinct in Harlem after his arrest. He was taken back to Rockland County. Monsey is a hamlet of Ramapo, New York, and authorities there are leading the investigation. Assistant District Attorney Michael Dugandzic wanted the judge to hold Thomas without bail, but the judge said she couldn’t do so because of the state’s “new prison reform laws,” Lohud reports, adding that one victim has a fractured skull.

However, the community quickly rose in defiance and with grace. “Right after the #Monsey stabbing, the Rabbi and his followers gathered in the synagogue next door to his home (where the attack took place), and continued the celebrations. ‘The grace of God did not end and his mercy did not leave us,’ is a rough translation of the lyrics,” wrote the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council.

NYPD Counterterrorism wrote on Twitter: “We are closely monitoring the reports of multiple people stabbed at a synagogue in Monsey, NY (Rockland County).”

“I am horrified by the stabbing of multiple people at a synagogue in Rockland County tonight,” Cuomo said in a statement. “We have zero tolerance for anti-Semitism in NY and we will hold the attacker accountable to the fullest extent of the law. NY stands with the Jewish community.”
