Iran's Anti-Semitism Makes It the Greatest Threat to Jews

(Washington Post) Colbert I. King - The Holocaust was the most evil event of the 20th century. So it is abhorrent to me that a government in today's world would advocate a repeat of that horror. And it is almost beyond belief that the rest of the world would hear such an outrage and look the other way. I am referring to the leaders of today's Iran and the global ho-hum response to the most virulent form of state-sponsored anti-Semitism since Nazi Germany. As a non-Jew, I recognize vicious anti-Semitism when I see it. The Iranian government is as anti-Semitic as the Third Reich. Ahmadinejad's call for the annihilation of Israel echoes the Fuehrer's call for Jewish extermination. The international focus today is on Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons and the threat posed by a nuclear-armed Tehran to Israel. That ignores the wider threat of Iranian-sponsored anti-Semitism to Jews everywhere. Iran's bigotry poses a moral challenge to the rest of the world. We did not stop the greatest atrocity of the 20th century. Will we be up to preventing the potential genocide of the 21st century?
