More swastikas to come

As many are noticing, swastikas seem to be appearing frequently on Jewish places of worship and Jewish owned properties. I truly believe that the over reporting of Jewish appointments and the events surrounding Jared and Ivanka Trump and their influence on THE PRESIDENT ELECT and appointments is certainly influencing those who already hate the Jews. The Trumps  have  every right to purchase a home in Washington D.C. for over 5 million dollars but why must it be publicized as a major story. There are myriads of people in Washington D.C.  and across the country who purchase homes for substantially more than five million dollars.   

Why doesn’t the press announce all Christian appointments and emphasize the word Christian? I worry for the survival of Judaism. There is a 50-70 % intermarriage rate and many in the orthodox world can not afford Yeshiva tuition. Let us Jews of all denominations concentrate on our survival. We should help the Holocaust elderly who can not afford medicine and food and need health care and worry about the soldier just convicted in Israel.

Can you imagine the public reaction if Muslims were reported to have been influencing a president elect. I predict more swastikas and worse unless the media stops pushing the Jewish issue.
