Five Stabbed Inside Rabbi's Home On Seventh Day Of Hanukkah

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Five Orthodox Jewish people were stabbed during a Hanukkah celebration inside a rabbi's home in Monsey, New York on Saturday, an attack that Governor Andrew Cuomo has called an act of "domestic terrorism." A suspect, Grafton E. Thomas, was apprehended on Sunday, though authorities say his motive remains unclear. Outlets on both sides of the aisle focused on the governor's comments as well as those made by President Donald Trump, who called the attack "horrific" in a tweet on Sunday. Some left-leaning outlets framed the incident as the latest in a growing string of anti-semitic hate crimes in recent months, while many right-leaning outlets highlighted the suspect's identity as a black male.
