Antisemitism has reared its ugly head again. It can be found in all crevices of our supposed-to-be-civilized society. It has even entered the gates of the United States Congress and it is blabbered there from the mouths of two new Muslin Congresswomen, whom I rather not name and give them accolade.
The Nazis, who well-conditioned the entire German nation that Jews were vermin and the world’s excess baggage, went ahead to murder one-of three Jews living in the world during World War Two.
Since the Holocaust occurred, that sin of sins by humanity, for the past 75 years the world has had covert, masked Antisemitism. But the mask is rapidly falling off. The head of the snake was not cut off. We may have defeated Nazi-Germany but we have not defeated the rabid Antisemitism from which this nation and others have been ridden with.
With Antisemitism popping up ubiquitously, we have been introduced to a number of challenging issues we thought had disappeared, to never return. These issues involved, in particular, the discourse of politicians who need to be held accountable for the words they employ, as well as the use of the social media to convey hate messages of all sort.
Making Jews feel exposed to hate and target of hate could be the result of wrong politically driven politics.
The time has come for civilized human beings to reassert the civic principles that convey the American Story, the civilized world story.
We owe it to any and all victims of antisemitism, since WWII, and we owe it to ourselves.
I am a Jewess, my last name is Jew, a name that has gone through peaks of storms and was polished by rivers of Jewish blood spilt.
I am a Jewess, my last name is Jew, a name way too often turns on the beast and brutality in man.
I am a Jewess, my last name is Jew. I am a member of the ‘Jewish clan’ that very clan that received the greatest love-letter ever written by the Creator, from the Creator. It is the Ten Commandments, the ethical guide to civilization’s ethos.
This superlative letter compels me, the Jewess with last name Jew, a Jew who, as the story of Creation tells us, is just like every person on earth made in the Image of God, to obey God’s word.
I am a Jewess, my last name is Jew, a member of the family of mankind and a nation that is not superior to any other nation, a nation that was redeemed from slavery into a nation of leaders, priests and scientists.
My people were trampled on and beaten, over and over again, but never gave up, never thought it was their end.
Today they have restored their human dignity and are helping to disperse the ingathering storm and darkness in the world and remind the world of its inherent nobility, bringing a vision of hope to a tangled world.
I am a Jewess, my last name is Jew. I am seeking genuine liberty throughout all the lands and unto all its inhabitants. I am seeking to restore that universal moral code of conduct God gave my people at the foot of Mount Sinai to share and spread beyond all oceans.
I am a Jewess, my last name is Jew and I formed a partnership with the Divine and my trade is to help repair our broken world.
Help me do so, rather than hate me! Your hate will only make me a better person at my trade. And you?
