Ben Faulding, also known as the “Hipster Rebbe” on Twitter and Instagram, was walking back from his gym in Long Island when two cops drew weapons on him, for buying hair products.
On Twitter, he narrated how he was put on the ground, police with guns drawn – because they were told that he was involved in an “armed robbery.” The entire story is harrowing, partially because they were screaming at him while he was wearing headphones and threatening to shoot him.

Brooklyn Synagogue Painted with “Kill the Jews”
A synagogue in New York City’s Brooklyn borough was defaced Thursday with anti-Semitic slurs and a call to “Kill all Jews.”
The New York Post reported that a vandal broke into the Union Temple building in Brooklyn Heights and scrawled several hate notes inside.
A political event at a Brooklyn synagogue was canceled. The event was billed as having Broad City star Ilana Glazer interview journalist Amy Goodman and New York state senate candidates Andrew Gounardes and Jim Gaughran at the Union Temple in Brooklyn Heights.
But it was canceled after anti-Semitic messages were discovered on a stairwell at around 8 p.m. Thursday. “She didn’t feel comfortable ushering 200 people into the enclosed space; potential sitting ducks,” said attendee Kathryn Gonzalez.
“Especially given last weekend’s events and the upcoming election, the tension and fear feels heightened.” The incident happened less than a week after 11 people were killed at a Pittsburgh synagogue—the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history.
HORROR IN NYC: Did Saudi Government Assassins Kill Two Sisters?
Two Saudi Sisters Rotana and Tala Farea, whose bodies were found washed up along the Hudson river, may have been victims of Saudi government assassins according to a well placed source within NYPD. They were then killed only a day after they applied for asylum in the United States, scared to return to the oppressive Saudi regime.
Their mother said that the Saudi government had called them on October 23rd and threatened them with being taken back to Saudi Arabia (and most likely punished) because the sisters had applied for asylum in the United States.
The sisters’ bodies then were found the next day, ducted taped, dead washed on the shore of the Hudson River.
There is a Saudi Consulate in NYC at 866 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10017
Police have ruled out that the pair jumped from the George Washington Bridge in a suicide pact, a theory that was initially pushed out by police, because neither body had visible signs of trauma that would have occurred when they hit the water.
Tala was last seen on Aug. 24, according to a now-removed posting on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s website. The alert said she might be with her sister.
A cause of death for the two women — both of Fairfax, Virginia — has not yet been determined.
This news comes the same day that we’ve learned that Washington Post Columnist, Jamal Khashoggi was strangled and dismembered in a Saudi Consulate in Turkey.
Pence’s Christian Missionary “Rabbi” Offends Jews
Jewish social media was pretty universally upset when Vice President Mike Pence paraded a Christian man under the guise of a “Jewish Rabbi.” Making it worse, he was there to memorize Jews during a prayer for the victims of the Pittsburgh sabbath massacre. Pastor Loren Jacobs of the Messianic synagogue Shema Yisrael offered a prayer before VP Pence spoke at Michigan campaign event: “God of Abraham … God and Father of my Lord and Savior Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah.”
Jews of every denomination called this everything from a “slap in the face” to “blatant anti-Semitism.”
To prove the Trump Administration isn’t anti-semitic, VP Pence had a “Jews for Jesus” rabbi give a prayer praising Jesus at a campaign event.
You can’t make this shit up.

Most Jews pointed out that there is no such thing as a “Messianic Synagogue.”
A “messianic synagogue” is a Christian church. The “rabbi” at Pence’s event today is a cosplaying Christian. https://t.co/RlVMcwndhe
