Muslim Mobs Get a Pass for Assaulting Jews in NYC and LA: ‘What kind of message does this send’? Says New York City Hate-Crime Victim

Muslim Mobs Get a Pass for Assaulting Jews in NYC and LA:
Attackers get off with no prison time and anti-bias training,
In May 2021, Joseph Borgen was violently assaulted by a Muslim mob while walking down the street in midtown Manhattan in the vicinity of an anti-Israel rally. The Jewish man was kicked, punched, pepper sprayed, beaten with a metal object, and ended up in the hospital.
Borgen was taunted as a “dirty Jew” and the assault was caught on video. “They were kicking me in my ribs, my stomach,” he described.
Waseem Awawdeh, the best known of the attackers, was out two days later. Even after Awawdeh reportedly told prison guards, “If I could do it again, I would do it again”, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg offered him a plea deal of only six months in prison. After public outrage, including protests and condemnations by elected officials, it was raised to eighteen months.
Faisal Elezzi, another of the attackers, got off with probation and an obligation to complete “anti-bias programming”.
That same month in Los Angeles, a pro-terrorist Muslim convoy was driving down the street near the Jewish neighborhood of Fairfax, and began harassing outdoor diners at a sushi place. Members of the Muslim mob waved a PLO terror flag, demanded to know who at the restaurant was Jewish, and witnesses said chanted, “death to the Jews” and “free Palestine”.
The Muslim attackers reportedly punched, kicked, threw bottles and pepper sprayed their targets who were members of the Persian Jewish community who had fled Islamic violence in Iran.
Samer Jayylusi and Xavier Pabon were arrested and immediately released on bail. They have since been sentenced to probation and ordered to visit a Holocaust museum.
The assaults in Manhattan and Los Angeles went viral. Videos of Muslim mobs attacking Jews made their way around the country and the world. They ended up appearing in national news stories. And yet most of those suspects got off with a slap on the wrist and diversity training.
“We take these cases extraordinarily seriously. That sort of hate has no place in Manhattan,” Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg had claimed.
“A hate crime is a crime against all of us,” Los Angeles DA George Gascon had promised, referring to the case. “My office is committed to doing all we can to make Los Angeles County a place where our diversity is embraced and protected.”
Both district attorneys have been linked to the pro-crime progressive prosecutor networks championed by George Soros as well as other leftist billionaires. And their promises of justice evaporated into consequences that could barely qualify as a slap on the wrist. --->READ MORE HERE

‘What kind of message does this send’? says New York City hate-crime victim:
Speaking in Manhattan Supreme Court on June 13, Joseph Borgen expressed disappointment at the sentencing of his antisemitic attacker, Waseem Awawdeh, who was sentenced to 18 months, saying he got off with a “slap on the wrist.”
“What kind of message does this send to everybody, to all victims of hate crime?” said Borgen, 31, in a seven-minute victim impact statement. “I really can’t fathom why he’s getting a deal. … I wanted to go to trial. I wanted to see full justice.”
Awawdeh, 24, struck Borgen four times with a crutch as part of a group attack in New York City in May 2021. Borgen heard someone say, “You dirty Jew, [expletive] Israel, go back to your country.”
Awawdeh’s plea agreement with the office of District Attorney Alvin Bragg avoids a trial and potentially harsher sentence.
Ari Kagan, a New York City Council member, called the deal “despicable, shameful and outrageous.” He added that “Joe Borgen was viciously attacked simply for being Jewish. Eighteen months in jail for this hate crime is not justice.” --->READ MORE HERE
