On the one hand, Jew-hatred has been actively fed and grown over the past couple of years.
The first wave came from Freedom of Speech idiocy on the Internet that made Jew into a curse word again. Has everyone forgotten that one?
Next came the conspiracy theories that mostly used code words for Jews and antisemitic dog whistles.
Here is an excellent piece about the present, sad state of affairs about this.
Meanwhile, the US President is a life-long staunch defender of Jews and Israel; nevertheless, he criticizes and bullies Israel in ways that are wholly unnecessary and pushes ideas that are totally out of touch with reality.
But, on the other hand, a US House of Representative resolution condemning rising antisemitism was approved by a majority of 420 to 1.
It calls on elected officials, faith leaders, and civil society leaders to oppose antisemitism in all forms and calls for renewed efforts to combat antisemitism domestically, globally, and online.
That is good but also a bit hollow. They are also against mass shootings, racism, sexism, and gun violence, but that too is often just idle talk.
Just like by the United Nations.
Yet, on the other hand (again), it does agree with supporting Israel militarily generously every time.
Meanwhile, US Jews live in fear as they haven’t had in decades.
US Jewish-Black alliance has known better times too.
The Muslim-Palestinian junta, jealous of the attention Ukraine was getting, resorted to a new wave of Jew murders, and the US is heeding them again.
A mixed bag indeed.
Not all of it is new. Part of antisemitism classically is that it often smolders and is stoked underground while officially, any hatred is denied.
Unfortunately, we have entered an era of deceit. That will make it extra hard to really uproot antisemitism.
