Anti-Semitism On The Rise

As much as anti-Semites love to proclaim they are not anti-Semitic but rather anti-Zionist, the fact that they indiscriminately target Jews and Jewish establishments all over the world proves they are both.

Since the recent battle in Gaza, anti-Semitic acts have increased across the globe, and in some cases condoned by governments themselves. Take Venezuela, which actually severed ties with Israel over Gaza (even though the fight had nothing to do with them!), it has apparently been publishing a slew of anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic articles and ads in the official press. And this past Saturday a group vandalized a Caracas Synagogue, plastering "Jews get out", "We don't want Jews here" and "Death to the Jews" on the walls. The front door was broken down and scriptures and other religious relics were thrown on the floor. The guard was also threatened with a gun. Though the Chavez government has condemned the act, there are those who think that it was Chavez thugs involved.

England, in recent weeks, has also been subject to a series of hate crimes aimed at Jews. In those cases the perpetrators were identified as Asian males, which is simply a euphemism for Muslims. A Starbucks was firebombed in London's East End, because the CEO happens to be Jewish, and on that same day the driver of a Tesco (supermarket) delivery van was attacked. A Tesco Supermarket also had windows smashed and the slogan "kill Jews" painted on the walls, because the founders happen to be Jewish.

In fact, there have been a spate of hate crimes all over Europe including France, where a young girl was attacked by teens, and synagogues have been vandalized and firebombed. The same thing is happening in Sweden and elsewhere. None of these have been aimed at Zionism, but at Jews. At pro-Palestinian demonstrations throughout the world, vile epithets have been heaped upon the Jews including calls for extermination.

There is simply no difference between ant-Zionists and anti-Semites. They are one and the same.

"A young girl was attacked by teens" in France.

Child's play compared to what the Muslim community is capable of doing to its own women.

One young muslim woman was "honour-killing" doused in petrol and burned alive in a communal trash can in Paris a while ago, and another was stoned to death in Marseille for the same reason.

What gives with all this fanatical and obscurantist hatred?

WOMAN: Ironic how they call the Israelis nazis. Sigh.

PATJ: Sadly true.

LETTERS: I know... it's so shameful and the apologists refuse to condemn it.

And that happens in France, Britain and even here!

I think you and I both know what gives.
