Three massacred children
Caroline Glick writes about the pervasiveness of Anti-Semitism today, not only in the Middle East and Europe, but here in America as well. It isn't a sobering thought for me, an American gentile who was raised Roman Catholic in New England and then New York - among the Jews of New York. No, the realization is not sobering, it is enraging. Not only that so many people feel comfortable parading their anti-Semitism but that there is no outcry amongst the public about it. That is seems acceptable to many, or barely worth a moment's thought about how wrong it is to hate in such a fashion.
Speak of discomfort being on an airplane with muslims - who are responsible for over 90% of all airline terrorism - and you get fired, pilloried in the Mainstream Media, told to seek psychiatric help. Speak about the horrific slaughter of a Jewish family in Israel and there is silence in the Mainstream Media. Speak of the rejoicing in the street of the "Palestinians" living in Gaza and other parts of Israel and you get silence. No condemnation. And those political figures who tepidly, weakly condemn the act do nothing to respond to the fact that muslims, Palestinians in particular, are responsible. That they believe it their duty to slaughter Jews, including infants and small children.
I am not religious, but if I were, I would be expecting another apocalypse from G-d. If not flood, then fire. For the people living upon this earth who cannot see the incredible foulness of their thoughts and behavior need to be expunged from the face of this earth. That the human race can hold within itself so many unspeakably foul individuals and groups is a travesty that demands such an apocalypse.
