On President’s Day, Anti-Semites made coordinated bomb threats against nearly a dozen Jewish Community Centers. This was the fourth time that JCCs have been targeted in less than 2 months. In total, there have already been at least 70 anti-Semitic acts committed against nearly 60 JCCs in around 30 States since the start of 2017. Last month, 48 bomb threats were made against JCCs; on January 9th, 18th, and on the 31st. The threats appear to be coordinated by one hateful group, but could possibly be a copycat scenario as well. There have also been numerous bomb threats against JCCs in Canada this year as well. As if the alarming bomb threats were not enough to provoke ire, vandals toppled and damaged over 100 headstones in a Jewish Cemetery in Missouri this week.
This growing cancer of Jew-hatred must be quickly eradicated from America before it has the chance to spread. Whether the culprits are Muslims, Neo-Nazis, or even Nationalist Trump supporters, we must make it clear that these demonic acts against the Jewish people will NEVER be tolerated. “Never again” must truly mean NEVER EVER AGAIN. While we may not know at this juncture who the racist perpetrators of the JCC incidents and Cemetery vandalism are, we DO know the names of some other anti-Semites making headlines.
The first of which is a Muslim preschool teacher from South Arlington, Texas. Nancy Salem was fired from the Children’s Courtyard Preschool today after she had urged her social media followers to “KILL SOME JEWS”. Upon further review of her social media accounts, it was found that this was not an isolated incident. Many anti-Semitic tweets and posts were discovered on Salem’s Twitter and Facebook, including a tweet which posed the question “How many Jews died in the Holocaust?”, to which she answered, “NOT ENOUGH…HAHAHAHA.” Absolutely disgusting.
Christians like myself get criticized daily for speaking out against the “religion” of Islam, all the while NEVER personally calling for violence against muslims themselves. Yet, the same voices that condemn Christians for our so-called “bigoted” views on Islam, are SILENT as muslims call for the murder of Jews HABITUALLY. It’s not “Islamophobia” to denounce a religion and group of people who call for a second holocaust of God’s chosen people! To no surprise, Salem was an activist with “Students for Justice in Palestine” at the University of Texas, Arlington, and also supports the “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS) movement. BDS is the primary reason for the recent 50% spike in anti-Semitism on American College Campuses.
The Islamist-inspired BDS campaign against Israel has led to Nazi swastikas on walls and doors of Jewish students, along with messages like “Hitler did nothing wrong.” Faculty members make anti-Semitic gestures in classrooms, and Stars of David with an “X” scratched into them appear on windows and doors. BDS supporters hand out materials at rallies that DENY the Holocaust and promote attacks against “Jews” and “Jew lovers”. BDS’ers protest, silence, harass and disrupt pro-Israel speakers, and sometimes prevent their lectures altogether. The movement’s founder, Omar Barghouti, has made clear that “the destruction of Israel” is the direct goal of the BDS. A Canadian student politician, inspired by BDS, recently incited violence against the Jews by tweeting “punch a Zionist” to his followers.
They may get away with that kind of garbage in Canada, but there should be no tolerance for it in America. Thank God that concerned parents of the Texas Preschool children didn’t tolerate Salem’s anti-Semitism. When the parents learned of her repulsive tweets, they flooded the school’s Facebook page with demands that Salem be fired. Randi Shuster posted: “I would strongly urge parents to think twice before sending their child/children to a school that employs hateful, terrible teachers. Nancy Salem should be ashamed preaching the murder of Jews. I hope you reconsider her hire.”
Ivan Lazarus said, “If this was a Catholic or, God forbid, Jewish teacher preaching death to Muslims, there would be world headlines, protests, bombings, death threats, deaths, violence, etc. But if the shoe is on the other foot, we sweep it under the carpet and hope it goes away. The Religion of Peace claims it is the net receiver of ‘islamophobia,’ yet reality dictates it delivers far more anti-Semitic rhetoric, and this proves it. This teacher, responsible for caring for young individuals must be fired and prosecuted, not suspended. But the world we are in today dictates that we must not offend the so called religion of peace!” AMEN to THAT guy.
In another disturbing piece of news, over 30 hate crimes have been committed against the Jews in New York thus far this year. While 30 may not seem like a very large number for such a large city, it is more than DOUBLE compared to this same period of 2016. To put it into better perspective, in the past two years, NO OTHER category of hate crime besides anti-Semitism was in the double digits. Sadly, hatred of the Jewish people has been growing in Europe for years, and the recent influx of Obama’s muslim refugees appears to be causing a similar rise of anti-Semitism here in the USA.
There were 1,300 anti-Semitic incidents recorded in the U.K. last year, rising more than a third to record levels in 2016. Violent assaults were up about 30% from 2015. There were nearly 70 incidents of damage and desecration to Jewish property, and over 1,000 incidents of abusive behaviour. According to data released by the Community Security Trust (CST), which monitors anti-Semitism and provides security to Jewish communities, the recorded 1,309 incidents of anti-Jewish hate last year rose from 960 in 2015. That is nearly a 40% rise.
All of the recent disturbing stories of Jew hatred in America are just more examples for why I strongly oppose Islamic immigration into the Country. For eight long years, Barack Hussein Obama changed the fabric of this Judeo-Christian Nation, and the recent rise in anti-Semitism is one of the many unfortunate products of that. Muslims are bred since birth to hate Israel and to hate the Jewish people. Barack Obama knew that full well, as he was raised a muslim, and I believe always has been.
That explains why he was the MOST Anti-Israel President Of ALL-TIME. It also explains why he was bringing Islamic refugees to the United States in droves. Sadly it is going to take years to undo all of the damage which Obama has done to this once God-fearing Country, but when it comes to the scourge of anti-Semitism, we can’t wait years. As Christians, defending the Jewish people is our duty, and so it is our God-given job to fight, push back, and END ANTI-SEMITISM TODAY.
UPDATES: About 100 headstones were overturned and broken at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia. Over 150 headstones were discovered overturned and damaged at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis. Headstones were also found toppled at a Jewish Cemetery in western New York. Around 400 Jewish headstones have been vandalized in the first two months of 2017.
At least 15 States reported threats against Jewish Institutions since the first 70 were reported. As of March 5th, over 100 JCCs and Jewish Schools have received bomb threats since the beginning of the year.
“JESUS said.. They shall put you out of the synagogues: Yea, the time comes, that whosoever KILLS you (Jews) will THINK that he (Islamist) does GOD service. And these things will they do unto you, because they (anti-Semites) have NOT KNOWN The Father, NOR ME.” ~ John 16:2-3
