Anti-semitism seems to always be lurking just under the surface and it bubbles over any time the nation of Israel dares to defend its citizens.

This happened again over the last couple of weeks when Gaza fired rockets into Israel and Israel retaliated.

The smooth-brain takes that you can’t equate opposition to Israel with anti-semitism is just ridiculous and disingenuous. Charitably, it could be simple ignorance of the history of the Middle East. Sure, you can criticize the actions of any government — including the Israeli government — but to suggest that Israel should not protect its citizens when literal terrorists are firing rockets at innocent civilians, well, that’s just nuts. Israel has a right to defend itself. It also has the right to stop the constant acts of terrorism by targeting Hamas in Gaza. The problem is that Hamas uses innocent people as human shields. In a just world, we’d be condemning Hamas for committing double war crimes by firing from behind civilians in Gaza targeting rockets at civilians in Israel. But there’s that whole thing about anti-semitism that plays a role here.

And don’t even try to do the “human rights abuses” on the part of Israel when the leadership over there in Gaza can afford rockets and weapons but cannot adequately provide for their own people and have to rely on humanitarian aid which they use to…buy more rockets to fire at Israel.

Despite all of the hue and cry about “racism in America” in the past few years, there has been a dramatic spike in one particular form of racism, and it’s only getting worse.

Although anti-semitism spans both sides of the political spectrum, and Democrats have been shouting about the 100 or so losers that marched with their tiki torches in Charlottesville back in 2017, this new wave of anti-semitism has a distinct political connection, and it isn’t the “alt-right”, “far-right”, or any kind of right-wing ideology. No, a lot of this is quite clearly coming from the left.

The latest war surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has led to more threats against the Jewish community, as data shows threats had already been on the rise in the past couple of years…

…According to the Anti-Defamation League, anti-Semitism in Florida saw a 40% spike from 2019 to 2020, and it’s taking a toll.

In the last 12 days, investigators are looking into hate crimes in Los Angeles, New York City and Florida.

“I thought that we Jews were accepted in America as being fully Americans,” said Rabbi Marc Sack of Temple Judea in south Fort Myers. “We all have work to do.”

In 2019, according to the FBI, 60% of all hate crime in the U.S. targeted Jews.

It’s not just in the United States, either. Anti-Semitism is everywhere, and open attacks on Jews were happening in the last few weeks. There were so many, it was difficult to keep up.

Check out this comprehensive thread by Wokal Distance, an intellectual researcher from Canada, who is ethnically Jewish and a convert to Christianity. (If you’re on Twitter, give him a follow, he’s fascinating!)

In his thread, he has videos of anti-semitism exhibited all over the world. And yes, these are video clips without context, but just watch and see if it doesn’t paint a pretty clear picture of what’s happening in the world.

It’s become so bad that the Times of Israel reports that some American Jews are hiding their religious symbols. 

Here are my own personal thoughts:

All of that is absolutely disgusting and everyone who fights to end racism should condemn that.

It’s also important to note that not every single person who joins in those “from the river to the sea” chants know that they’re advocating for the genocide of the Jewish people, but if they don’t know where it came from, then they shouldn’t chant it.

These are the same sorts of people that tell white people that they need to “educate themselves” and “do the work” to end anti-black racism, but don’t bother to look up the history of a blatantly anti-semitic slogan that has been chanted all over the world in many — if not every — pro-Palestine march.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting very tired of being lectured about “unconscious bias” by people who lack so much self-awareness that they don’t recognize that they’re anti-semitic and anti-white racists.

Racism in all of its forms should be condemned. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior in 2021.
