Video Released of Chabad Vandal

Police have released surveillance footage of a man believed to be responsible for shattering the front window of Chabad in Bushwick on Friday night.


There’s new information in an apparent hate crime at a Brooklyn synagogue. Police have released video, in hopes of catching the man accused of vandalizing the house of worship.

A rally to denounce the vandalism got underway late Tuesday morning, CBS2’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas reported.

Clergy from different faiths stood in solidarity after a Bushwick synagogue was targeted by vandals over the weekend. The NYPD Hate Crimes Division continues to investigate the incident.

The group of clergy and law enforcement gathered in front of the boarded up window and shattered glass, which appear to be an indication of an increasing trend.

Video surveillance captured one of possibly two people police are looking for. They’re believed to be responsible for shattering the front window of the Chabad of Bushwick early Saturday morning.

“We just heard a really loud noise. It even sounded a little like an explosion,” Rabbi Menachem Heller said.

About 15 people, including children, were inside the synagogue observing Shabbat. No one was injured.

Anyone with information regarding this incident has been asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at http://www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.

Ex-CIA anti-Semite inciting millions of people against Chabad again
It's important for people in the community to know the following: A high-level ex-CIA guy, who's white, and is one of the major forces behind anti-Semitic rhetoric on YouTube with millions of views has been spewing lies and hatred against Chabad for close to a year now. In his latest Feb. 8 interview on X22 Report on YouTube he lies about Chabad, causing incitement against Chabad from the 16 minute mark to 16:30. In just a few days the video is approaching half million views, and his videos are mirrored on YouTube and other platforms; so his Haman-like poisonous lies about Chabad have reached over a million people- just in this one latest interview alone. He's making multiple interviews like this each week. And he's announced now that a billionaire has given him $200 million to start a "Truth TV Channel" which will increase his propaganda against Chabad and the incitement of violence exponentially Rachmana Litzlan. Google "X22 Report Massive Swamp Draining" for his latest incitement against Chabad. 16 min - 16:30.

His name is Robert David Steele. He's not your typical garden-variety anti-Semite. He's on a particular sick, obsessive vendetta against Chabad, which he sees as the leader of world Judaism. And he obsessively refers to Chabad in almost all of his media interviews as the "Chabad supremacist cult." The details about this are below. So while unfortunately Jews have been violently attacked by African Americans in Crown Heights for decades (the worst pogrom in American history was the Crown Heights riots, which Dinkins let rage on for days; and the race baiter Al Sharpton was one of the people who incited the whole thing from the start, and then added fuel to the fire during the riots, making them worse). However, the latest alarming, unprecedented uptick in hate crimes by Blacks against Jews and different type attacks, such as the smashed window of the Chabad House in Bushwick, has a far more nefarious source, which comes from outside the community and outside the city itself.

Chabad is being targeted much more broadly by some very powerful people, who reach the masses, and who despite their hatred of Jews are at high levels of the intelligence community and the Deep State.

This probably comes as a surprise to most Lubavitchers, whereas B"H they're focused on issues like Yeshiva funding and their heads are buried in a Gemara or Tanya. B"H. It's outside their sphere of knowledge. But unfortunately, the attacks are becoming so frequent in Crown Heights; a weekly and sometimes daily occurrence reaching epidemic proportions now, that everyone now needs to start protecting themselves- and as a community we need to cut off the head of the snake to uproot the problem. As the Torah instructs us, "he who comes to kill you, rise and kill him first." So the least we need to do is start protecting ourselves. Pepper spray; also there is a new pocket sized military grade laser being sold for self-defense (used by the US Navy and sold in most states as a holiday gift item etc.) that's like the next generation of pepper spray. And former Israel commandos should be hired to protect the neighborhood in a real way and to restore order. These black street thugs will be no match for them.

While we can't say for sure Robert David Steele is personally behind the violence, here's an example of what his incitement has led to. Several weeks ago Newsweek political correspondent Nina Burleigh blamed Israel, Mossad, and Chabad for the Trump presidency, and Russian malfeasance. The story about this Jew hatred can be found on Arutz Sheva and other media outlets. It was a story that was covered by several media outlets here and in Israel.

The tweet was in response to a thread with over 12,000 likes by author Sarah Kendzior listing several stories she said were “undercovered” to cover up "horrific crimes" of people in the Trump camp. A few of the stories involved President Donald Trump and Chabad.

“Interesting thread,” Burleigh replied. “To answer your final question, Israel, mossad, Chabad and black cube … you’re hitting the third rail of American journalism, Sarah.”

Young Israel has called on Newsweek to fire this well known reporter, after she blamed Israel, the Mossad, and Chabad for being a problem in the world. But even if she's fired, Robert David Steele has a whole army of others like her.

Whomever is in charge of Chabad security (if such a thing exists, beyond the feeble attempts of the so-called community leaders who are playing out of their league on this one) needs to check into the Jew hating ex-CIA guy named Robert David Steele, who's one of the more powerful people in America today in terms of having the ear of people in the US govt, intel people in the Alphabet Agencies, billionaires, media elite, etc. He seems like a typical middle-class white guy from NY. And he's particularly dangerous because his form of anti-Semitism appeals to both the radical leftist Jew haters as well as the far right hate groups such as Neo-Nazis; and in some instances he actually unites the far left and far right against the Jews.

His interviews on alternative media news programs have millions of views on YouTube and he has a personal vendetta against Israel, "the Zionists" which he constantly refers to as causing all the evil in the world, and Chabad (which he calls the supremacist Zionist cult and things like that).

He's no dummy and he's careful not to directly threaten violence against Chabad most of the time, but he openly makes veiled threats. This is a dangerous, violent guy. And regarldless of whether he or his operatives are committing violence against Chabad and/or other Jews, in the least he incites others to commit violence. Was the bachur who was "randomly" shot in the head in Chicago a victim of this? Rachmana Litzlan. Hashem knows, and we don't. But it would be a good idea for the NYPD & FBI to monitor what this guy is saying publicly against Chabad, and it would be a good idea for the Mossad to monitor what he's doing behind the scenes against Israel, which he calls the Apartheid State.

It's hard to find an interview of his where he's not ranting on with his lies and propaganda how the evil Zionists and Israel are controlling the world. And then he usually mentions Chabad as part of this. Sometimes he says things like "Chabad controls Broward County, FL" and he claims Chabad had a part in orchestrating the Parkland shooting. Ridiculous of course, but people believe him.

Search YouTube for "Ex-CIA Robert David Steele, Zionism is Over" for a one hour interview in which he threatens Chabad violently with hate speech found in a gutter; and he talks about Chabad being involved in the Parkland shooting, and in that particular interview he also mentions his conspiracy theory of how Chabad controls Broward County. Anyone who doesn't have time to sit through the hour interview, I have included some of his specific quotes against Chabad below along with exact time stamps from throughout the hour interview where he threatens and/or is speaking lies about Chabad.

Other times in different YouTube interviews he speaks about how the Vatican, the Globalists and Chabad are the 3 most dangerous forces in the world. He might be right about 2 of the 3; of course we know how bizarre this is about Chabad... but the masses believe him. He's not a dumb guy and he's articulate. And he's careful to say he likes many Jews, to try and avoid being branded as an anti-Semite, which is what he is.

He was nominated for a Nobel Prize, heads up one of the top agencies to fight Pedophilia, he claims the Palestinians are victims of Israeli aggression, and he is one of the top book reviewers on Amazon, etc. He's a modern-day Haman and like Haman he's sneaky and clever, so that makes him more dangerous.

This is a guy who plans to run for president in 2020 on a ticket with the black anti-Semitic politician Cynthia McKinney. He's very close with her.

Is he and/or Soros funded type organizations behind the attacks we are seeing in Crown Heights and around the US in general, and the type of attack we saw recently in Israel where Sifrei Torah were destroyed with acid during a horrific middle of the night break in at a Yerushalayim shul, where skilled operators cut a hole in the side of the Aron Kodesh and dumped the Sifrei Torah on the floor after dousing them in acid, Rachmana Litzlan? It's hard to say and only Hashem knows for sure.

In another recent incident where we all saw bizarre pictures of the guy holding a sword threatening Jews by the Chabad house in N. Hollywood, California- right away it was clear this wasn't a one-time random act. And now more info is coming out about that incident at Chabad in California. Then just a few days ago, the security guard at the Chabad girls school in LA had to shoot someone outside the building. Thank G-d that guy in LA was stopped before he got in the building to do whatever he might have planned to do. Several years ago when a black man entered 770 yelling "Kill the Jews!" and then stabbed an Israeli bachur in the neck, he wasn't neutralized until after he was in the shul and had already stabbed someone.

People who are asleep pay attention to the puppets, such as that character in California or the blacks commiting the violent hate crimes against Jews in Crown Heights. But people who are awakened pay attention to who's pulling the strings. NYPD & White Hats at FBI should bring this guy Steele in for questioning.

Many of these attackers are hired and paid by operatives that are much higher up the food chain. They're not acting randomly and they're not acting alone. It's part of a well planned, well financed nefarious plan.
I have marked the exact time stamps in a 1 hour YouTube interview this guy Robert David Steele did on an alternative media news program last year where he threatens and lies about Chabad. That's only 1 of his interviews where he does this. Almost each week he appears on programs doing it, amounting to millions of views inciting violence against Chabad, G-d forbid. Anyone who wants to time stamp his vicious comments on his other videos feel free. As a community we can't bury our heads in the sand. We need to know what this modern-day Haman is saying and plotting. However, it's time consuming to sit through his whole videos and wait for the threats against Chabad and mark the time stamps. But I did it on this one video.

It was always a little bad around CH with the blacks, but never something like this in the last 10 years, so it doesn't take a genius to figure out someone outside is putting them up to it. In the last few days when someone shattered the front window of a Chabad in Bushwick on Shabbos, I thought.. these outrageous attacks need to stop! What is this, shades of Kristallnacht? G-d forbid. And last week a security guard had to shoot a guy in the leg who was menacing a Chabad school for girls in LA. We're under attack! And it's a coordinated assault being orchestrated by clever Jew haters and Israel haters high up the totem pole, people like Steele. This man is no dummy. And he brags that he and his rogue operatives with their CIA & NSA connections have the ability to read anyone's emails. Anyone. And other things of that nature he brags that he can do. And unfortunately he's not bluffing. These guys are not amateurs.

What should we do? There's little children walking around the neighborhood, women, elderly, and even a strong man can be paralyzed, severely wounded, or killed by a knockout punch or knife attack. Chas v'Shalom. There's a well known incident about 20 years ago where a Jew got punched in a parking garage in Manhattan by a black guy, and the Jewish guy was knocked out and he died a few days later.

But we don't need to go back 20 years. An innocent young Chabad bochor in Chicago was shot dead, and some maniac in LA threatened Jews outside a Chabad shul with a huge sword. It's crazy what's going on!! Ad Mosai?!! Every Motzaei Shabbos I see of a new attack in Crown Heights on COL. Women punched, 15 year old girls attacked violently, men beaten up severely. Yeshiva kids learning here from Israel in the shechuna of the Rebbe with knives held to them.

So here it is below. Some of Robert David Steele's sickening "Greatest Hits" against Chabad. I watched that whole hour interview with that Steele CIA guy, and I noted all the time marks where he threatens Chabad. I didn't have time to watch all his other interviews where he says stuff against Chabad, but just this one was frightening enough!!!! It was worse than I imagined from reading the original comments on COL about him. When you hear the guy say it, it's shocking!! NYPD can you look into this??!!!

YouTube video "EX CIA Robert David Steele, Zionism is Over & Much More" which is an interview of Steele on the program, 'A Right to Know' with Sherry Beall. Video published on YouTube May 17, 2018 by Victurus Libertas VLTV:

7:50 mark - "Jared Kushner is one of two things, the senior 'Chabad Supremacist Cult' member in the US Government, betraying his father in law every single day..."

At the 9:05 mark he talks about an article he wrote in the American Herald Tribune how the "Chabad Zionist Cult" is preventing a reversal of the US Embassy being moved out of Jerusalem again. And he goes on to say the Zionists connected to Chabad "are America's worst enemy. It's not Russia, it's not China, it's not Korea, it's not Iran, it's not Cuba. The Zionists are America's worst enemy."

At 14:30 he shows some big, thick fake progaganda false news book that he holds up to the screen and he says, this book is "the absolute bible documenting Zionist atrocities against the Palestinians." And then he says "this book would hold up in a court of law; and any court of law reading this book would push the Israelis back into the sea."

At 17:40 he makes the vulgar, violent threat, "We can't denuclearize Israel until we first cut the genitals off the Chabad Jews. It's that simple." He doesn't use the word genitals, but a more filthy language term. And just for this threat alone he should be investigated by the FBI and hopefully prosecuted for inciting hate crimes against Jews.

At the 17:59 minute mark he goes on to say that Chabad controls Broward County, Florida, where the Parkland school shooting was, which was a false flag."

At 57:49 he makes the threatening statement, "The evildoers have been defeated in 2012 and we're not going back. The only holdouts are the Chabad Supremacist Cult & the Zionists, and once we put them back in their box, Xi Jinping, Putin, & Trump are going to lead us into a 20 year burst of prosperity that's going to lift up the 5 billion poor."

Teach him 'The Seven Noahide Laws' in depth.

Here is how to catch this hoodlum
You need to reproduce his picture with a finanicial cash reward and post it all over the area near the shul. Every lamppost and apartment door should get a flyer under the door. He is obviously in walking distance. Why can’t the cops look at recent arrests or released prisoners records. Someone will recognize him especially for a quick few bucks.

Thank you #4
Not enough people know there are antisemites like this, who have many followers and supporters, that go on comments under every youtube video that has anything to do with Jews, and spew their lies about Jews, which go unrefuted, and then everyone reading think they must be true, because no one points out the flaws and outright lies, in such videos and posts under videos.
