Residents of Jersey City, where two Chassidic Jews were murdered at a kosher market on Tuesday, were caught on camera blaming the victims in the aftermath of the attack.
An employee of the store, as well as a police detective, were also killed on Dec. 10 in the wake of an attack on the JC Kosher Market in the Greenville section of Jersey City
“I blame the Jews. Cause we never had a shooting like this until they came,” said one area resident. She complained that her child was stuck at school across from the scene of the attack “because of Jew shenanigans.”
“They all the problem because if they ain’t come to Jersey City this s**t would never go on,” she said, adding, “Take that s**t somewhere else.”
Another resident was caught on tape saying, “Get the Jews […] out of here.”
Dov Hikind, a founder of Americans Against Antisemitism, posted the video on social media on Wednesday.
“SHOCKING VIDEO: As Jewish bodies were still laying in cold blood after being murdered by terrorists in Jersey City, a rep of @AmericansAA captured spontaneous antisemitic tirades blaming Jews for their own murder & ppl (people) cheering it on! Antisemitism, a bigger problem than appears,” wrote Hikind.
Law-enforcement officials say it could take months to complete their investigation of the shooting.
