The Origins of the Current Rise in Antisemitism

 

Listening to the Commentary podcast Monday, John Podhoretz recommended an article he had read in the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles. The article describes the manner in which Muslim organizations spread their message of anti-Israel and antisemitism through our culture and those of Europe. I read the article, which wasn’t very long,  and very concise. It essentially documents what I have long believed to be the case. It is a good read, and I look forward to reading the comments of others on this forum who read it.

    He couldn’t have been the only one who knew this was coming. Why are we hearing about this now, finally? We were so willing to simply blame the universities and their Marxist professors, but the propagandists were a much larger group. This is awful.

    Worked for me; if it will work for me, should work for anyone! :-) Thank you for this article; I look forward to reading it and learning from it.

    The Inside Story of How Palestinians Took Over the World (jewishjournal.com)

    In the early 1980s at my university, there were Arab groups doing what today would be called “push polls” about the Middle East situation. They considered trivial details such as the Holocaust to be a distraction.

    I read that this morning, and was fascinated.

    Then I discovered that a mastermind of the October 7 attacks,  Gaza Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, who was sentenced to several life sentences for orchestrating the deaths of Israeli soldiers and four Palestinians he determined were “collaborators ” (I went in search of the details and they’re quite nasty, as is most of this unspeakable thug’s criminal history),  was part of a prisoner exchange in 2011 in which he and over a thousand other jailed Palestinians (over a quarter of whom were serving life sentences for terror attacks against Israel) were released to secure the return of a single Israeli soldier who had been held captive by Hamas for over five years.

    Three years before Sinwar was released by Israel, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and was operated on by Israeli doctors, undoubtedly saving his life.

    And I wonder how that experience plays into Israel’s response now.

    He must die.

    This explains much.  

    I’ve suspected since 10/7 that it was timed to coincide with Iran developing a nuclear bomb.  It may have been hastened just a bit by the eve of the Israel – Saudi agreement.  But that it has been well – planned, long in advance, is crystal clear.  One cannot help but wonder (or see) how deeply – imbedded this groupthink is infused in government, especially the top of the federal government.  The very top.  

    If ANY good can come of the present situation, our hope for that is pretty much limited to the fact that it has opened enough eyes so that a counteroffensive, such as Wexler describes, might still come about.  Might.

    What did we expect?  The Free Traders wanted cheap labour and they let in millions of people who hate Jews.

    And then they stand around all slacked jawed about the rise of anti-semitism.

    What did we expect?
