Residents of the Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn’s Borough Park rallied outside the house of journalist Jacob Kornbluh in New York City on Sunday, slamming the Jewish Insider’s correspondent for having reported on community leader Harold “Heshy” Tischler, who was arrested on Sunday for allegedly inciting riots over the new COVID restrictions in the area.
The angry protesters shouted ‘Nazi’ and ‘Snitch’ at the reporter addressed the police officers temporarily guarding the residence with slogans ‘No Heshy – no peace’, drawing the analogy with Black Lives Matter protests.
Member of the community Gabi Shapiro sustained that there might be a certain ‘double standard’ in defining protests as ‘violent’ or ‘riot’.
