No Credible Threat To The Jewish Community, Or Any Community, Despite “Day of Hate” This Shabbos


A special community message from NYPD Inspector Richie Taylor, the Commanding Officer of Community Affairs, has put to rest fears over this weeks planned “Day of Hate”, noting that there are no credible threats to the Jewish community or any community.

Listen to the message below:

The NYPD Intelligence and Counterterrorism Bureau had released a Memo earlier this week warning of a “Day of Hate” scheduled to take place this Shabbos, calling for anti-Semites across the globe to make their feelings known.

“The NYPD Intelligence & Counterterrorism Bureau recently observed online domestic violent extremist (DVE) messaging announcing a national “Day of Hate,” scheduled to take place on Saturday, 25 February,” the memo reads. “Based on ICB observations of extremist postings online and at least one shared propaganda video on a social media platform, the anonymous online organizers of this overtly racist, anti-Semitic event are instructing likeminded individuals to drop banners, place stickers and flyers, or scrawl graffiti as a form of biased so-called activism.”

While no violence was being called for, the NYPD says that at least one message by organizers requested that participants in the “Day of Hate” photograph or record direct actions and submit them online in order to create “a compendium of exploits from around the country”.

The NYD advised members of the service to maintain elevated situational awareness and vigilance on February 25th for such incidents.
