Where to?

Seventy two years after the end of Holocaust Jews around the world face the same level of insecurity that our parents and grandparents felt during that dark days.

The places are almost the same, the “good” old continent, or not so good as we all know, and even in the new world, at higher or lower levels depending on the latitude and longitude.

From Charlottesville to Barcelona, in the end they were all targeting Jews. Even in the most prestigious universities in US or Europe, especcially during the pitiful Israeli “apartheid” week, Jews (that sometimes are not connected to Israel and are not even close to Zionism) face growing hatred only due to their religion.

After the supremacist march in Charlottesville, a sign was posted in a college in California telling to “take care of” a lot of different minorities (some are not even close to a minority definition), guess which group is missing from the list? Yes, the only real minority, especially in terms of size, and the only one in real danger, with daily threats.

Anti-Semitism, from time to time, flourishes here and there, with more or less power, unfortunately these days it grows like grass during rainy spring.

Jews confront rampant anti-Semitism from the extreme left and from the extreme right, from Americans and Europeans (forget about Arab countries), from radical Christians and Muslims (and even from some self-hate Jews), from white supremacists to “Blacks Lives Matters”, the hate towards Jews are in vogue, again!

Palestine Calls Jews are not tolerated in Norway
Palestine Calls. Jews are not tolerated in Norway.

In the past, Europeans were screaming to Jews, “go to Palestine”, nowadays they tell us “get out of Palestine”.

Well… you have to decide, where to?
