Hoenlein: Pandemic of Anti-Semitism Is Forming

(Times of Israel) Raphael Ahren - "I think we're seeing a pandemic in formation," said Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. "We saw anti-Semitism in Britain, we saw it in France, and now we see it's spreading everywhere....Look at the numbers of incidents in Germany, Scandinavia and other parts of the world. And now we see in America swastikas being painted, other expressions, threats or aggression against kids on campuses." "I don't think now it's a direct threat to Jewish existence or Jewish survival. I do think that this cancer, left unchecked, spreads and becomes more and more of a threat....This is not our problem. It's society's problem. It's Christianity's problem. It's everybody's problem, when there's hatred against Jews. We're the victims; we're not the cause of it."
