Kristallnacht has no home here

Today marks the beginning of the remembrance of the infamous Kristallnacht (Night of Glass). It was 85 years ago, when Nazis and their fellow goons, attacked, beat, and murdered Jews, while gleefully destroying and looting their stores and property, leaving German cities streets littered in glass, as Jewish blood flowed down its avenues.

With time, times and governments can change, as evidenced by the fact Berlin banned the anti-Semitic slogan “Death to the Jews.” Now, Berlin has added a ban to chanting ”From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free,” which calls for the eradication of the Jewish State of Israel.”

America should follow the example of Berlin and prohibit its people from “shouting fire in a crowded theater” by fining and imprisoning those antisemites who intone that vile mantra in support of the ultimate genocidal aims of Hamas, which like the Nazis miscreants they idealize, want to eliminate Jews, Jewish history, and Judaism.
