Jersey City official slams 'Jewish brutes' after shooting attack
In wake of kosher grocery store shooting, Jersey City official slams 'Jewish brutes', appears to justify attack on local Jews.
YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS (think Cory Booker) ARE RESPONSIBLE
“Mr. Anderson and Ms. Graham went directly to the Kosher supermarket,” Terrell wrote. “I believe they knew they would come out in body bags. What is the message they were sending? Are we brave enough to explore the answer to their message? Are we brave enough to stop the assault on the black communities of America?”
Who is Terrell?
BACK TO BUSINESS – HATING JEWS: Jersey City School Official Bashes Jews On Facebook
She is “Jersey City Board of Education Trustee Joan Terrell.”
(YWN) “Where was all this faith and hope when black homeowners were being threatened, intimidated and harassed by ‘want to buy your house’ bullies of the Jewish community?”
“and that a million-dollar campaign in New York encouraged Jewish to move into Jersey City.”
“‘One still exists and has been harassed almost daily,” she wrote. “If we are going to tell a narrative, it should being with truth, not more cover up of truth. Dialogue is important, but truth is critical.”
“She implied that city officials and community leaders appear to have turned a blind eye to the reduction of services, and claims that “drugs and guns are planted in the Black Community.””
THERE IS DEFINITELY A PROBLEM IN JERSEY CITY
“Mayor Steven Fulop said Terrell’s comments do not represent Jersey City or the sentiment in the community at all.
“The African American community has been nothing short of amazing over the last week,” he said. “Countless people have reached out to support their neighbors and express the sentiment that we are all working towards a better city together. It has been inspirational to see the community pull together and that is the Jersey City we all know. I’m saddened by her comments overall and the ignorance they demonstrate.”
Unfortunately, others claim Terrell’s remarks reflect the growing tension between the two communities, and that she appears to be one of the few public officials to raise these issues.
But the strident language of her post has alienated some who even marginally agree with her, coming within a week of the shootings.”
