ADL: Anti-Semitism Alive and Well

In the one-year following the atrocity at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reports 12 white supremacists have been arrested for their alleged roles in terrorist plots, attacks or threats against the Jewish community. Jewish institutions have been targeted at least 50 times with the following:

* 12 instances of vandalism using white supremacist symbols;
* 35 distributions of white supremacist propaganda;
* At least 30 additional incidents in which individuals of unknown ideology committed arson, vandalism or distributed propaganda that was not explicitly white supremacist in nature at Jewish institutions.

Seven hundred and eighty (780) incidents of anti-Semiticism have been reported in the first six months of this year.

The data, located here, include the arrest of Corbin Kauffman, age 30, from Lehighton, Pennsylvania, who was charged April 1, 2019, with interstate transmission of threats to injure the person of another. He had threatened multiple times to kill Jews. His preliminary examination is still pending, believe it or not.

Philadelphia's ADL can be reached at (215) 568-2223.

Jew hatred seems to be a common theme among each party's fringe. David Duke was rejected, however, while Ilhan Omar is lionized as a brave progressive.

I asked my barber if I needed a haircut, guess what he said?
After a look in the mirror, I thought he might be right, after all I didn't say when.

Sometimes I need one and sometimes not so much, that just the way it is with haircuts... of course the barber doesn't see it that way.

Ilhan Omar endorsed and supports an old, white, Jewish, man, for President, everything she is not...the last time you did that you were brave.

David Duke supports Trump a man with a Jewish son-in-law and Jewish grand-children. Yes Duke's endorsement was rejected which is political prerequisite in American politics.

”A lot of them post on this blog, too.”

True, and that is bc the Lehigh Valley is no exception to the antiSemitism existing nationwide.

The one relevant question to ask whenever the ADL comes up, is "Who is Mary Phagan"?

Bernie O'Hare said...

That is a completely irrelevant question.

It's interesting how antisemitism is portrayed as a predominantly white problem, while we have had influx of people from the middle east who have openly hated all Jewish people for centuries.

Coincidence? Think not.
Open borders, right?

Bernie, unfortunately there is much subversive material that purports to defend Jews, but in reality is antisemitic itself. The comment at 7:18 is an example. The linked youtube is very antisemitic, despite its title.

MM, I have already deleted a substantial number of overtly anti-Semitic remarks. This bias is alive and well.

Just watched the video. Comment deleted.

"This bias is alive and well."

It's shocking. Why does it keep happening, over and over, in so many countries? We've had a concentrated media and state-run campaign for decades trying to stamp out anti-semitism, but it keeps resurfacing. Is there no hope? Is there no way to finally shut it down?
