The meteoric rise of anti-Semitism is a dangerous threat (CIDI)

WIM header

Recently, Breitbart reported on a very troubling trend announced by Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations: “Jew hatred and demonization of Israel are at ‘the highest level of our lifetimes.’
Anti-Semitism is returning to everyday life without shame.'”

With anti-Semitism on the rise and Israel under assault, Christians must stand with the Jewish people and with Israel. Today, I am asking you to support Christians in Defense of Israel’s many initiatives to promote U.S. – Israeli relations and to stop the meteoric rise of anti-Semitism.
Please see my message below on this disturbing trend — Mat.

This past weekend, Micah Halpern, author and political commentator, wrote a hard-hitting look at the rampant rise of anti-Semitic acts in America.

Anti-Semitism is a scourge on humanity and a stain on society… Anti-Semitic acts are increasing with such ferocity that it appears nothing can be done to stop this explosion of hate. Anti-Semitism is dangerous, empowers the perpetrators of hate crimes, and is downright wrong. We can and must stop the recent explosion of anti-Semitism overtaking our communities, our cities, and our country. We must stop it for the sake of humanity and society.”

Last week in New York City, there were five anti-Semitic attacks. Those incidents follow several acts of vandalism in other areas of the country and over one hundred reported threats to Jewish schools and Community Centers.

Anti-Semitism is among the most vile of prejudices. As Mr. Halpern also noted,“Today, all forms of hatred towards Jews are considered anti-Semitism, including being anti-Israel.”

This is our moment, our time to, like Esther of old, take a stand and do our part to defend the Jewish people from rising anti-Semitism and to come beside Israel against its vicious enemies.
