Family of suspect in Hanukkah stabbings denies he was anti-Semitic

The family of a man suspected of stabbing five people at a Hasidic rabbi’s home during a Hannukah celebration is refuting allegations that he is anti-Semitic, noting that he suffers from mental illness but has no history of violence. The family of the suspect Grafton Thomas said he has a history of mental illness — adding that if he was the assailant, he was not driven by anti-Semitism.

I was watching many reports and they certainly mention he said something about Hitler and a rise in hate crime recently, ie Trump. but they don't show the criminal's face, making the average person think it was some white nationalist guy. rise in hate crimes? remember the group yelling at the Covington kids? https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/11/nyregion/jersey-city-shooting.html Suspect in Jersey City Linked to Black Hebrew Israelite An assailant involved in the prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, was linked on Wednesday to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement The suspect wrote anti-Semitic statements. it's the Democrats and thier liberal outlets that permit anti Jewish sentiment. https://www.israelhayom.com/2019/04/30/new-york-times-under-fire-after-publishing-a-second-anti-semitic-cartoon/ https://www.wsj.com/articles/can-ilhan-omar-overcome-her-prejudice-11562970265

Still against the very idea of "hate" crimes. Actions are the only thing that should be criminalized, not motivation or thoughts. But yes, this guy needs to be kept away from the rest of society for the rest of his life.

Always seems curious to me when stories like this only have non-US news sites linked. Is it simply because someone/ some application outside the US is adding the story or is there some other reason?

Over the years I've seen many who claimed to be "not antisemitic" and let me tell you: this is NOT my favorite kind of "not an antisemite".
