A milestone

Zionists constantly tell us that a “new anti-Semitism” is upon us and Jews are about to face a second Holocaust. Pure drivel, according to the new director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research in London:

The situation of world Jewry is much better than Israel and the major Jewish organizations would like us to think, says historian Dr. Antony Lerman, the new director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research in London.

In his opinion, all of the talk in recent years about a new form of anti-Semitism that is camouflaged as criticism of Israel is nothing but pure drivel. True, he says, there are more instances in Europe of attacks on Jews by Muslim immigrants, but the problem can be easily resolved: as soon as Israel agrees to a “just solution to the Palestinian problem.”

True, he says, the murderers of the young Jew in France last month chose their victim because “all of the Jews are wealthy,” but he still doubts that this is enough to make the murder an anti-Semitic incident.

In general, Lerman feels that paranoia has developed around the issue of anti-Semitism, and the tendency to define anything negative that happens to a Jew as an anti-Semitic incident.

This, of course, won’t stop the usual suspects from using rampant paranoia for political gain.
