Skip to comments.The time is now to confront rising anti-Semitism

On Saturday night, British journalist Hannah Partos was on a bus in central London, returning to her home. (A) group of men behind me just started shouting Are there any Jews on the bus, Jews get off the bus, (expletive) Jews, Partos live-tweeted. I was shocked, turned around, thought of saying yes, me, please stop. Thought better of it. Never seen anything like it.
Partos ordeal in the middle of the capital of the worlds great parliamentary democracy is sickening to consider, but unsurprising. The most civilized nations, no less than others, are gripped by a tsunami of anti-Semitism, and it grows uglier and uglier, with Jews trapped in a pincer movement from the hard left and the hard right. Any conceit that this cancer has not metastasized in America is fanciful. The Anti-Defamation Leagues annual audit of anti-Semitic incidents found that anti-Semitic assaults, harassment and vandalism have reached near-historic levels. Last Tuesday two anti-Semitic ideologues slaughtered innocents in a kosher market in Jersey City. On Saturday, around the same time thugs were threatening Jews on Partos London bus, a Beverly Hills synagogue was broken into, its prayer shawls and books purposefully desecrated. There is no sugar-coating it: This is the new normal.
In Boston last week, David Harris, the peripatetic head of the American Jewish Committee whose formidable diplomatic skills led the late Israeli President Shimon Peres to dub him the foreign minister of the Jewish people, identified the three sources of the problem extreme left, extreme right and jihadism, and spoke about his organizations focus on confronting it: mobilizing civic society and governments to fight back. There are, Harris observes, numerous factors in the virulence, the insidiousness and the spread of anti-Jewish hatred. The Holocaust is a fading memory in an increasingly ahistorical world, Harris says.

Never Again?!?!?! (Yeah, right!)
Guess what: it’s not the far right this time, but coming from a different direction.
ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ... We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.
And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.
We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, determinedly clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe
It wasn't the Far Right, the first time, neither.
The home of antisemitism in America is Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
Remarkable, here I am in the supposedly “anti-Semetic” south where we justly revere OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP, and I’ve not seen a bit of this evil in OVER THIRTY YEARS. but, go to liberal colleges in the North and it’s as infectious as small pox.
The Hard Right? Really? In Boston? London? Jersey City?
Lies. Just more media lies.
A group of men. Ill bet. Could have been any old men, right? Just your average everyday group of normal Englishmen coming home from the pub and throwing Jews off city buses.
Sucks that we have to read our newspapers like the Russians used to read Pravda. What is left unmentioned is the real story. But its laughable that they think theyre fooling us with their deliberate, ideologically driven, politically-correct omissions.
The time is always. There is never a time not to.
Anti-Semitism is on the rise almost everywhere. FR is sadly, no exception. Even here, folks are feeling more and more free to express racist and anti-Semitic views.
Thanks to the American left, this is only going to get worse in the US.
As long as the vast majority of US Jews vote socialist (Democrat) there is no hope of properly dealing with this.
At some point (I believe) it will be up to us crazy right wing constitutionalists to defend US Jews from the fascists on the left. I do believe that. We will be called upon to use the guns that they have tried to take from us to defend them. Which I will do. Because I am a moral man and it is the right thing to do. NOT because I care personally about the leftists who have tried to destroy me, my country and our Constitution.
I will defend all Jews regardless of their political views. Sadly, I have little faith that leftist Jews in the US would risk their lives for me if the ANTIFA thugs were loading me onto a box car.
It wasn’t the right last time either. The Nazis are socialist and are quite to the political left.
Remember: diversity makes us strong!
Note how the article author describes a “group of men” with no description of their ethnicity.

Note on a Jewish encounter......
Today I visited a North Carolina company that is in fact a facility of an Israeli company.
There were both Hanuka and Christmas decorations.
But..... on the wall was a sort of plaque. The Message;
I understand why it seems that way and that you would say this.
But I (hoping others feel the same) have antipathy for those on the left who despise me and wish me ill. If they are blacks or Jews, I believe that my antipathy is focused on their political beliefs and not their race or religion.
If they are black and hate me because I am white, I am not going to submit to that. Ditto for the socialist Jews like Bernie and Chuckie - ersatz Jews IMO. But it is not because they are black or Jews, it's because they hate me and our republic.
” It wasn’t Far Right, the first time either. “
ALL totalitarianism is Left.
They stick their heads up to look around for stinging rebukes and censure. Seeing none, they push a little farther out in disgusting anti-semitism. Already tried by them: Jews have all the money and secretly run everything. To be against Israel does not mean being against Jews. Both total BS! Long time anti-Jewish stands used for many decades.
I am Jewish and I deplore the self-hating Jews who continue to be against Trump because their mommies once taught them to hate Republicans and be for the Dems and "the little guys" and against the rich who keep minorities down.
Trump helped Israel,acknowledged Jerusalem,helped Netanyahu,declared anti-semitism a U S hate crime (2019) and has done more to help all minorities and "little guys" get jobs and income than anyone in decades. Unemployment is down.
