NY Governor Cuomo just imposed new restrictions specifically targeting nine Orthodox neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens. Houses of worship in "hot spots" will be limited to 10 people, gatherings limited to 10 people, non-essential businesses closed, etc... Taking to the streets, Brooklyn residents protesting these measures were enraged at the obviously Anti-Semitic tone Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio have taken. They feel they have been singled out as a scapegoat for the supposed spike in covid cases.
"This is Nazi Germany" one protester said.
Heshy Tischler, who spoke at the protest, stated "I have a message to you Mr Mayor and Mr Cuomo, We beat you in court, the court order still stands whatever he told us to do, to close synagogues and schools, he is in contempt of court. We are now filing a new injunction that will be up and running in a few days".
As I wrote in previous articles, the Holocaust was precipitated by protective measures against Polish Jews who were blamed for spreading Typhus. Ghettos were actually called quarantine zones, and the gas chambers were actually called delousing chambers, where Jews believed they would get showers to combat the spread of typhus. In reality, the creation of the ghettos began decades before the Holocaust during WWI when the German medical establishment spread fears of the typhus epidemic. They weren't called ghettos back then, they were called quarantine areas and internment camps. And the idea of delousing baths, with zyklon B, which led to the creation of the gas chambers was also put into use by the Germans decades before the war. Typhus is a disease carried by lice and fleas. So delousing baths where people were sprayed with dangerous chemicals became the standard sanitation procedure established by the Germans. All clothes were sprayed with Zyklon B disinfection powder.

Lawsuits have been filed by Jewish and Christian groups over these new NY COVID restrictions.
But it gets even crazier. Unbelievably, protests are now deemed ILLEGAL in these zones! Cuomo has threatened protesters with summonses and arrest if they refuse to comply.
On September 24th thousands of protesters marched through New York City for Breonna Taylor‘s death. Yet, Cuomo didnt condemn that. Citizens have every right to protest against police brutality. But why don't Jews have the right to protest as well? The right to protest is a fundamental part of the constitution. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble.
The economic devastation that will follow these crazy restrictive measures will kill many more people than covid ever will. It's a self inflicted economic meltdown. And when the economy does collapse, war will probably not be far away.
"Though we are the representatives of 'hotspot' neighborhoods, we have been disincluded from conversations with the governor and his leadership team as they made devastating decisions affecting the people we serve," wrote Senator Simcha Felder, Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, Councilman Chaim Deutsch & Councilman Kalman Yeger.
