antisemitism comng big way

Antisemitism has not really gone down. All it has happened is that Jews managed to make non-Jews, particularly Euro-American Christians, feel guilty about the Holocaust, that is all. There is no genuine change. Antisemitism can not be erradicated, particularly in countries where Jews achieve much influence such as the US today. Yes, the US is where antsemitism will happen big way. People just freak out when they see Jews having so much influence in many areas, such as US foreign policy. When they freak out they will turn violent. As long are not smart enough to find a way to be truly accepted by non-jews antisemitism is as natural (not moral but natural) as water flowing downhill. It does not matter Jews achieve the influence trough sheer dilligence. The point is tge fear we create. The ADL canm intimidate and silence many but does not change attitudes it just pushes antisemitism underground and in the process generates even more. It is a crazy situation; Jews have to figure a true way to be accepted otherwise we will go back to the historical pattern. Keep in mind also Jews are pretty dumb at anticipating anti semitism, as history shows.

aside from the statements although rehearsed are all too common, what really gave me a sense of tranquility was to see that some of the patrons of the bakery did not allow the actor to continue his comments and asked him to keep them to himself. In the end "we are all brothers and sisters" like one of the men said.

Stop anti semitism, Stop bothering Israel

The last thing the government wants is an outbreak of anti semitism. With the rise of anti semitism in the United States, it has gotten the attention of the government. Times will get better, liberty to be Jewish in anyway you chose here in the U.S; if you leave Israel alone. One mistake I have read about, that their are Jewish groups trying to get Israel to conform to U.S. standards of Judaism. When this started in the 70's, is when anti semitism started rising in the U.S. When the Reform movement was sweeping Europe in the late 1800's, were they trying to get Israel to conform to them, then? It's a big mistake! These various groups need to leave Israel alone on these matters. Will they get the message! Learn from history and don't make the same mistakes again. The Reform movement and various other Jewish groups, fits into exile countries, Israel is not an exile country. Stop bothering Israel, and it will stop anti semitism here in the U.S.

Nothing changes

Society needs someone to kick around so they may feel superior. That has been the role of the Jews throughout history and not much has changed. Thankfully, there are the handful of folks who get it. Unfortunately, the vast majority still look for our horns and feel the Final Solution should be continued. And some wonder why Jews live in enclaves? Your story is the reason.
