Wave of Anti-Semitic Incidents in wake of Israel-Hamas War

2023-10-30 (#067)

Some examples of the wave of Anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. in the wake of the Israel-Hamas war a "Heil Hitler" sign on an overpass in Georgia, vandalization of the home of a Holocaust survivor with "F*** Jews" graffiti in California, calls to "kill the Jews" by masked people in Florida outside a synagogue. Anti-Semitism is on the rise but there's no precedent to what has happened on university campuses, and university heads and leadership seem to be afraid to speak out unequivocally against it. Hamas murdered Jews, not only Israelis and the issue is affecting Jews aroud the world and the Anti-Semitism is unacceptable. In 2023, there's no issue or social justice movement that thasn't been addressed head-on in America. Why can't people stand up and say it is unacceptable to say "death to Jews, to Israelis, to Zionism". After October 7th, there wasn't even a 24 hour period of mourning before it became victim blaming and "2 sides to this story". It is not difficult for college leadership to come out and say outright that it was an unacceptable massacre, that they will do everyhting they can to protect their Jewish students, as much as their Muslim and other minority group students.
