Stand Up to the Anti-Semites – Show Up In Court
Mathew Mahrer and Christopher Brown were arrested on November 18 at Penn Station in NYC for planning a possible imminent attack an unnamed synagogue — it could have been yours. Police confiscated an illegal gun, high-capacity magazine, ammunition, hunting knife, body armor, and a Nazi armband. Mahrer is charged with weapons possession; Brown with making terrorist threats and weapons possession. Although Brown remains in jail, incredibly, Mahrer is out on bail, without even an ankle monitor. You’re justifiably worried about the rising incidents of anti-Semitism. Here’s something simple, concrete you can do: show up as a concerned member of the Jewish community at the pair’s next hearing. What we’re asking: that until Mahrer and Brown stand trial, both must remain out of public circulation. And that the District Attorney send a message to would-be haters by requesting the full measure of punishment for what could have been a horrific anti-Semitic crime. Presiding Judge Diane Kiesel. Click HERE to contact Glenn for more info.

His articles have appeared in Commentary, Newsweek, the Jewish Journal, Jewish News Syndicate, Times of Israel and Mosaic Magazine.
