Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo believes that when Jews are victims of knockout attacks, it’s because people resent their success.

In a letter sent to her supporters and posted on her Facebook page Tuesday, Cumbo shared her thoughts about a “recent epidemic of the ‘Knock Out Game’ in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn and throughout the Nation.”

“I admire the Jewish community immensely. I am particularly inspired by the fact that the Jewish community has not assimilated to the dominant American culture, and has preserved their religious and cultural values while remaining true to themselves. I respect and appreciate the Jewish community‚Äôs family values and unity that has led to strong political, economic and cultural gains,” Cumbo wrote. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success.”

If only Jews were less successful so they wouldn’t cause resentment in people.
