There are troubling reports coming out of New York City of Palestinians going after Jews in the Diamond District, an area that has a lot of Jews and Jewish businesses.

In this video, you can see a group of Palestinians in a car in the street yelling, cursing at Jews on the sidewalk, and giving them the finger. There is a larger group of Palestinians with flags up the street. And there appears to be an injured man among the Jews and the police gathered on the sidewalk.

Two fireworks were thrown from a car and one person got burnt, according to Ben Sales of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

Police don’t appear to arrest anyone on video, they seem to be concentrating on trying to move the car and the other Palestinians out of the area.

Then there’s other video, purportedly at 47th between 5th and 6th, where it appears to be some kind of explosive firework being thrown at a group of people on the sidewalk. You can see the Palestinians in cars on the street and then the device goes off on the sidewalk.

It wasn’t a firebomb although it caused everyone to scatter. There were other fireworks/smoke bombs tossed during the chaos.

There was also sheer madness in Times Square as Palestinians tried to push through the fencing and the police to get at the Jewish group on the other side of the street.

The NYPD arrested at least one person after they declared an “unlawful assembly,” according to reporter Eliad Eliahu. But this wasn’t about “protesting,” this was about trying to attack Jews.

As we reported earlier, the Israelis and Hamas agreed on a ceasefire earlier in the day, which is now supposed to be in effect. Except apparently, that ceasefire doesn’t apply to rioters in New York City.
