The Rising Tide of Anti-Semitism

The Wall Street protests had an anti-Semitism flavor.

[July 28, 2014] Social media and news organizations are reporting on and sometimes participating in an increasing chorus of anti-Semitism. Largely a Middle Eastern and European event, we have seen it also in New York City and other large places globally. The country of Turkey is the latest to push the extremes of the rising tide of anti-Semitism. What is most interesting about this is that no one has really provided a good explanation. There are, of course, the listing the current Israeli incursion into Gaza and “Israel’s crimes against humanity.” Much of this is the sort of thing one would see on a terrorist website. Yet, mainstream politicians are also participating in this tide and it all seems to defy logic. Hamas has sent thousands of rockets into Israel cities. The intent is simply to kill Jews. When Israel responds by primarily targeting the infrastructure, there is a huge outcry. Targeting of tunnels, rocket launchers, weapons stockpiles, communication centers, etc. will kill people also. But the number killed is relatively small given the mass amount of firepower Israel possesses. Israel has a rigid policy against targeting innocent civilians, a war crime. Yet we hear nothing from these same people about Hamas’ admitting to and targeting civilians. Adolf Hitler told his Nazi party members in 1920, “How, as a socialist, can you not be an anti-Semite?” The radical German leftist Wilhelm Marr said, “Anti-Semitism is a Socialist movement.” The leftist socialist movements across the world have always had a vein of anti-Semitism, often just ready to burst out at a moment’s notice. As regular readers know, I often write about how socialism debases humans, distorts their minds, and corrupts their hearts. Here is another case where socialism, and its cousin leftist politics, have similar roots. We don’t know a lot about this growing trend, but this is what we do know. The rising tide of anti-Semitism is not just an anti-Israeli phenomenon and it appears to be stronger than many outbreaks in the past. [Don’t forget to “Like” the Leader Maker at our Facebook Page.]
