L.A. shul-goers discover their restaurants' glass smashed by masked, burglar gang

Some Jewish Los Angelenos walking to synagogue on Shabbat morning were stunned to see glass doors and windows of their kosher restaurants smashed into pieces on the sidewalks. 

Several restaurants catering to Jewish residents of Pico-Robertson neighborhood were vandalized - and some were burglarized.

The restaurants affected were Nagila Pizza,  Fisherman's Bowl, Sushiko, Shalom Grill, Shanghai Garden, and Fu's Palace (not kosher). Factor's Deli was not touched.

A roving, neighborhood watchman mentioned that police were alerted on Friday to a stranger brandishing a firearm. We don't know whether the gunman and the break-ins are related. Or whether the break-ins are bias motivated (hate-crime) towards the orthodox Jewish restauranteurs or community.

Muslim savagers of Jews on NY & L.A. streets get under-penalized by liberals, draws no counteraction from "Never Again'ers"

Waseem Awadeh battered Joe Borgen with his metal crutch

In May 2021, Joseph Borgen was violently assaulted by a Muslim mob while walking down the street in midtown Manhattan in the vicinity of an anti-Israel rally. The Jewish man was kicked, punched, pepper sprayed, beaten with a metal object, and ended up in the hospital.

Borgen was taunted as a “dirty Jew” and the assault was caught on video. “They were kicking me in my ribs, my stomach,” he described.

Waseem Awawdeh, the best known of the attackers, was out two days later. Even after Awawdeh reportedly told prison guards, “If I could do it again, I would do it again”, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg offered him a plea deal of only six months in prison. 

After public outrage, including protests and condemnations by elected officials, it was raised to eighteen months.

Faisal Elezzi, another of the attackers, got off with probation and an obligation to complete “anti-bias programming”.

In Los Angeles that same month, a pro-terrorist Muslim convoy was driving down the street near the Jewish neighborhood of Fairfax, and began harassing outdoor diners at the Sushi Fumi restaurant. Members of the Muslim mob waved a PLO terror flag, demanded to know who at the restaurant was Jewish, and witnesses said chanted, “death to the Jews” and “free Palestine”.

The Muslim attackers reportedly punched, kicked, threw bottles and pepper sprayed their targets - who were members of the Persian Jewish community who had fled Islamic violence in Iran. An
Armenian-Christian, Mr. Mher Hagopian, who dined with the Jews, attempted to fight the antisemites off, but was overwhelved by members of the Palestinian gang.

Just one Muslim, Samer Jayylusi, and an accompanying Latino, Xavier Pabon, got arrested and were summarily released on bail. Two years later, this July, Judge Laura Priver  recently sentenced the two to probation and ordered to visit a Holocaust museum.


The assaults in Manhattan and Los Angeles went viral. Videos of Muslim mobs attacking Jews made their way around the country and the world. They ended up appearing in national news stories. And yet most of those suspects got off with a slap on the wrist and diversity training.

“We take these cases extraordinarily seriously. That sort of hate has no place in Manhattan,” Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg had claimed.

“A hate crime is a crime against all of us,” Los Angeles DA George Gascon had promised, referring to the case. “My office is committed to doing all we can to make Los Angeles County a place where our diversity is embraced and protected.”

Both district attorneys have been linked to the pro-crime progressive prosecutor networks championed by George Soros as well as other leftist billionaires. And their promises of justice evaporated into consequences that could barely qualify as a slap on the wrist.

If the four defendants sentenced so far in these four cases, whose sentences are known, three received probation and anti-bias classes. 75% of the perpetrators in these Muslim mobs may have spent only a few days in prison and have walked away with nothing except some classes.

The message that has been sent by DA Alvin Bragg, DA George Gascon and Judge Laura Priver of the California Superior Court is that Muslim attacks on Jews will go unpunished.

According to reports, Judge Priver thought that “counseling and Museum of Tolerance program was a better solution than sending the two to state prison as the prosecution had requested.”

While these two Muslim mob attacks on Jews caught the attention of the world, there have been individual assaults that have gone unnoticed and mostly unpunished.
