Ambassador Danon is 100 percent correct. It is the relentless demonization of Israel from the Democrat Party, and the mainstream media, and academia, and America’s Muslim leadership, which has resulted in the surge of antisemitic attacks we are now seeing in the United States.
This demonization of Israel became mainstreamed under President Obama, spreading rapidly once Israel’s enemies realized that they had a supporter in the White House. Under President Obama, anti-Zionism became an acceptable way to express anti-Semitism.
Over 10 years after Obama was elected, the New York Times is printing Nazi-like cartoons, the BDS Movement is making life for Jewish students unsafe on university campuses, and the leading presidential candidate for the Democrat Party openly calls the Israeli government racist.
Only the American Jewish community can fight this hatred. No one else. These attacks will continue until American Jews learn to stand up to the Left. That will start with American Jews abandoning the neo-Nazi Democrat Party. #JEXODUS!
Outpouring of support, concern after California synagogue attack, Jerusalem Post, JPS, April 28, 2019:
“The words, the demonstrators and the cartoons turn into shootings against worshipers in synagogues,” said Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon in response to the attack.
Sympathy poured in from around the world in response to a shooting attack in a Poway, California Chabad synagogue on Saturday that killed one woman and wounded three others.
The rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, was reportedly one of those who were wounded in the attack.
“The words, the demonstrators and the cartoons turn into shootings against worshipers in synagogues,” said Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon in response to the attack. “Antisemitism continues to raise its head and take victims. This is the time for action, for a determined war and not for weak and hollow condemnations that allow the forces of hate to revive dark periods in history.”
The ambassador was seemingly referencing an anti-Semitic cartoon published by The New York Times on Saturday.
Mass demonization of Israel in the United States began in President Obama’s first term, which has resulted in American Jews being terrorized today.
Trump condemns anti-Semitism, hate crimes at rally after synagogue shooting, Colby Itkowitz, Washington Post, April 28th, 2019:
President Trump began his political rally in Wisconsin Saturday night with a full-throated condemnation of anti-Semitism and hate crimes hours after a fatal shooting at a synagogue in San Diego.
“We forcefully condemn the evil of anti-Semitism and hate,” Trump told the crowd in Green Bay, Wis. “It must be defeated. We will all get to the bottom of it.”
“We’re going to get to the bottom of a lot of things happening in this country,” he added.
