It is rising

Be away Anti-semitism is alive and well in America now. It is showing up on websites, internet radio programs and, message boards and in the general population. The current financial crisis will make matter worse. If the economy collapses then the masses will look to blame someone. It could get very dangerous. Watch what is happening around you. Don't repeat the past mistakes of thinking that it will go away. .

It could happen here (in the US)

While it is inconceivable that anti-semitism or genocide could be committed against Jews in America, what if...

1. A government in Israel takes power and leads the Jewish Nation into war with its neighbors, attacks and expels or kills the Arabs in Judea & Samaria and/or simply refuses to be forced into a suicidal peace agreement?

2. What if such intransigence leads to major attacks against American targets?

3. What if Israel were accused of committing those attacks against America?

If the political and military situation were to spin out of control isn't possible that America's latent anti-semitism could be aroused?

What if simultaneous to such events America elects a radical left or right wing Pres. to lead the confrontation with Israel?

So pray to G-d and submit to His will, whenever you have the chance.

I am not an optimist, We Must all be diligent because history tends to repeat itself.Let me set the stage for you.Enters the Lunitic shouting about body parts of a few of us. Oh yeagh thats already happened.I say to you my brothers and sisters we have got to protect ourselves or we will be next. ya-think you are exempt.Think again and again I say we only need yo look back afew decades when they threw our anses into a mass grave! My prayers are with you. May I offer up my 60 year old body up too. I live in Fresno Ca. very few of us here to protect but protecting the innocent is what we are best at. Hashem made us that way!

Solidarity

It is indeed a definite miracle that the Jews are still around, due to not giving in to assimilation or total genocide. It is highly urged that we Jews neither give into intermarriage, assimilation, nor acknowledge anyone they are right and we are wrong of what we believe. Solidarity has always been the boldness that keeps the Jewish people going. Thus, always marry Jewish and don't let fundamentalists affiliated with Christianity, Islam, or otherwise try to convert you into their way of thinking! Remember to examine Deut. 13 on how to spot a false and misleading prophet. Unfortunately, the secular world doesn't seem to know the discrepancy/difference between the Messiah and G-d. Those who are moderate are the ones with room to learn.

I MUST answer post # 13

When you speak of teaching tolerance, you forget that intolerance is being taught in the home, mostly and will be passed from generation to generation. The older ones will be unwilling to teach their young that is far better to love than to hate. And it is being taught by peers who learn it at home.
The key is to NOT capitulate to the demands of those who hate you because this will be percieved as weakness, which will only provoke more hatred and persecution. Being loving AND strong... just as a good parent is to his child. Respond appropriately.
