The following article, De Blasio And Giuliani Get Into Online Tussle Over Anti-Semitic Attacks, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Rudy Giuliani and Bill de Blasio traded blows online over the weekend about the anti-Semitic attacks that took place over the weekend in New York City.

On Saturday, a man ran into the home of a rabbi and attacked folks at a Hanukkah celebration. This marked the 13th incident to happen against Jews in the city over the last several weeks, which has sparked conversations about what actions need to be taken in order to stop the hate and bloodshed.

And that’s where things got heated between Giuliani and de Blasio

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Giuliani, 75, took the first swing after the attack and condemned de Blasio’s leadership in the wake of the continued attacks. He criticized the current mayor’s decision to part ways with the policies Giuliani implemented as mayor, including “broken windows theory,” which required strict enforcement of minor crimes in order to create bottom-up compliance to stop severe crimes like homicide. The policy has been criticized by some because it can lead to distrust of law enforcement for cracking down on less serious crimes.

He tweeted, “Possibly the worst Mayor in NYC, de Blasio, has watched anti-semitism rapidly metastasize, like a cancer, & is too unconcerned or lazy to ‘nip it in the bud.’ Otherwise called Broken windows theory, which should be brought back. A COWARD in that he has yet to condemn anti-semities in his own party who support BDS & similar movements, who’s main objective is to destroy the Jewish Homeland.”

De Blasio, 58, launched a counter punch Monday morning and accused Giuliani of anti-Semitism for his remarks about Democratic donor George Soros. The president’s attorney claimed that he was “more of a Jew” than Soros, a Holocaust survivor.

de Blasio wrote on Twitter, “Last night while New Yorkers came together in solidarity with the Jewish community, Rudy was on Twitter trying to play the victim and make it about himself. Last week he questioned the Judaism of a Holocaust survivor. If you’re sensing a pattern, you’re not alone.”

The Hanukkah attack left five individuals hospitalized, with two in severe condition. Gov. Andrew Cuomo weighed in on the attack and called it an act of domestic terrorism.

Police later arrested 37-year-old Grafton Thomas after the attack. He’s currently being held on $5 million bail and has been charged with five counts of attempted murder and one count of burglary.
