While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

The New York Police Department is seeking a suspect caught on camera assaulting a Jewish man in the borough of Brooklyn in broad daylight on Friday.

The suspect shouted an anti-Semitic remark at a Hasidic man, then punched him in the chest and dealt him a blow with a broken piece of furniture.

The NYPD published a video on Twitter showing part of the incident.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo took to Twitter to condemn the incident.

"I am disgusted to learn of yet another attack against a member of our Jewish community in broad daylight," Cuomo said in a statement Friday. "This is anti-Semitism, plain and simple. It's abhorrent and unacceptable, and these hateful acts have absolutely no place in New York."

Jonathan Greenblatt, director of the Anti-Defamation League, pointed out that there has been a 50-percent increase in anti-Semitic acts in the United States since the 11-day escalation between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist movement which controls the Gaza Strip.
