Even the USCIRF finds anti-Semitism growing

Three members of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom wrote an op-ed for US News and World Report. They show where anti-Semitism is growing, especially in Europe. The only bright side is that there is no one leader in which those that persecute and attack Jews can rally behind right now.

The op-ed

Here, via the USCIRF, is the op-ed from Katrina Lantos Swett, M. Zuhdi Jasser and Hannah Rosenthal.

A just-released study confirms that this is hardly a recent phenomenon. According to Pew Research Center, by 2013, Jews were harassed in 34 of 45 European countries, and anti-Semitic harassment worldwide had reached a seven-year high.

Today’s anti-Semitism differs from that of the 1930s. There is no single counterpart to Hitler. There is no one European government or leader fueling most of today’s anti-Jewish acts. Nonetheless, Europe’s leading heads of state acknowledge that Jew-hatred is spreading. Jews are seeing their religious freedom violated, their grave sites vandalized, their synagogues desecrated, and Jewish lives lost…

…In the US, it has become normal. Too many try to bow to Islam and thus kick Jews. Just look at what happened at UCLA, shown in this article. The culture of hatred to all things Jewish needs to end.
