Who Cares? We Do

Hatred of the Jewish people is not just something that happened during the Holocaust. It is not just something that happens to Israelis. Writing at The Jerusalem Post, Earl Cox explains it is proliferating in Europe, and here in America, and that we must not be silent about this hatred of and violence toward people of faith:

Antisemitism is proliferating in America and Europe. The Anti-Defamation League’s latest global survey of 102 countries and territories found 26% percent of adults are “deeply infected” with antisemitic attitudes. That’s about 1.09 billion people worldwide and, perhaps surprisingly, a great number occupy church pews.

US incidents against Jews surged by 67% the first nine months of 2017 compared to all of 2016, the ADL said, and the trend is continuing to accelerate. Nearly 1,300 incidents included assault, vandalism and harassment, while bullying and vandalism have intensified at US schools and colleges. This is happening not only in America but around the world.

The ancient hatred has become frighteningly commonplace in Europe, where attacks in France, Sweden, the Netherlands, Austria and Germany are provoked by a lethal mix of Islamic ideology and left- and right-wing extremists. Even certain EU media, political parties, and courts have vastly contributed to Jew hatred.

If something is said that supposedly offends a Muslim or paints Islamic ideology in a negative light, it is immediately labeled as “hate speech.” On the other hand, say something negative against Christians or God’s chosen people, the Jews, and hardly anyone blinks an eye...
