[Ed. – It’s always baffled us when blacks and Muslims, who are so wed to the whole grievance movement, behave hostilely toward another oppressed group.]

An unemployed Florida man was accused Saturday of committing a hate crime following a series of alleged antisemitic incidents that included knocking over a menorah in the lobby of an office building and spouting a hate-filled rant outside a South Florida synagogue. The incidents took place in a quiet suburb of Miami that has a number of Jewish residents.

Thirty-five-year-old Nadim Siddiqui of the 2200 block of Mckinley Street in Hollywood, Forida was charged with criminal mischief 2nd violation evidencing prejudice. He was taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, according to Miami-Dade police.

The incidents occurred during the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah and little more than a month since a gunman opened fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue. Eleven people were killed in the horrific shooting.

Major Michael Bentolila of the Aventura Police Department said earlier Saturday that Siddiqui’s arrest was the result of a “coordinated investigation” with his agency, the Miami-Dade Police Department, Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, FBI Miami and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
