New York college student charged in brutal anti-Semitic attack on Jewish man

Police say pro-Palestinian Waseem Awawdeh is charged with hate crimes in the beating of a 29-year old Jewish man named Joseph Borgen. Awawdeh, 23, is reportedly a college student.

Awawdeh has reportedly been released from jail while the case against him moves forward. He allegedly told a jail employee, “if I could do it again, I would do it again.”

According to the New York Police Department, Awawdeh, 23, is charged with hate crime assault 2, gang assault 2, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon.

Awawdeh is allegedly one of five men who are said to have attacked Borgen, unprovoked last Thursday near Times Square.

Borgen is quoted as saying the attack is making him rethink wearing his yarmulke, a Jewish skullcap, in public.

Borgen told the New York Post that he suffered a concussion, injured wrist and body bruises. “I have a black eye. My face is banged up. I’m just sore all over my body. They were kicking me in my ribs, my stomach,” he says.

Shortly after Thursday’s attack, police released the above images of the men believed to have assaulted Borgen.

Numerous hate crimes against Jews and Asians have been reported in New York City.

      No it should be there. When I go to right now, and click the box that says “free news on demand” I see the Full Measure box that has all the episodes…

  1. You can bet if Muslims were being attacked the mainstream media would be all over it.
    The same when the were going crazy about the Asian hate crimes until they figured out they were mostly being perpetrated by African Americans. The mainstream media thinks it is perfectly okay to attack Jewish people.

  2. He says be would do it again. He will. So do the hundreds and thousands who have been released were or never incarcerated in the first place. They do it again, because they can. And with reductions in law enforcement it is doubtful there will be protection and intervention available. The result will be vigilantism. We have already seen armed witnesses intervene, so it is only a matter of time before the bloodshed begins. Exactly what the Marxists are desiring.
