Worldwide Anti-Semitism Is Alive and Well

Worldwide Anti-Semitism Is Alive and Well

Anti-Semitic remarks routinely made by such Democratic congresswomen as Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan have become mainstream — and not just here, but in other “civilized” parts of the world, including among university elites.

That was made clear in an email sent September 27 by the University and College Union (UCU), which represents approximately 120,000 researchers and teaching staff, including permanent lecturers, in the United Kingdom.

The email, sent to each of the union’s local chapters, encouraged its members to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, which will be held on January 27, according the Jewish Chronicle, a London-based digital publication.

It then described the horrible human toll of the Holocaust, which, according to the email, included such groups as:

  • Trade unions, including social democrats and Communists
  • Europe’s Roma and Sinti people
  • Black people
  • Disabled people
  • Freemasons
  • Gay and lesbian people
  • Jehovah’s Witnesses
  • “Asocials,” which included beggars, alcoholics, drug addicts, prostitutes and pacifists

Notice anything missing from the list? More specifically, do you notice a glaring omission that, by any moral standard, should be at the very top of the list? Of course, European Jews are absent. Yet any mention of the Holocaust should automatically bring to mind Jewish persecution and extermination during Germany’s Third Reich.

The email included a link to UCU’s website, which described Holocaust Memorial Day and listed again the groups targeted by Nazi’s. It also omitted Jews.

Even more egregiously, the UCU’s email and website mentioned one additional group affected by the Holocaust: “Non-Jewish Poles and Slavic POWs.” This strongly suggests that the omission was intentional.

It also suggests that no one in the UK teaches anything about the "Final Solution" anymore — the vehicle by which Nazi Germany embarked upon a campaign of genocide that eventually took the lives of an estimated six million Jews.

In response to a wave of criticism on social media, the union apologized for the omission in a followup email.

“UCU apologises for the offence this caused and reassures all members that it continues to fight against all forms of antisemitism, hatred and bigotry in society,” the email said, referring to the omission as “drafting errors.”

UCU’s website was also updated, adding that “the systematic murder of six million Jews across Europe began with the separating and dehumanising of the Jewish people.”

The omission and subsequent apology astounded security expert and frequent Fox News contributor Jim Hanson, who believed it to be it the logical result of identity politics.

“This is a stunning case of anti-Semitism by erasing Jews from the Holocaust but making sure every group that still matters in identity politics is included,” he wrote. “I can't even fathom how that can happen, but it's a good reminder of the priorities of the Left.”

Israel is America’s most loyal ally in the Middle East, as well as the region’s only true democracy. It’s one in which women, people of all ethnicities and faiths, including Islam, can start a business, practice a profession, vote in an election, or even run for elective office.

Yet the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) waged against the Jewish state is alive and well on college campuses across the United States, and even within the halls of Congress.

Philip Klein, executive editor of the Washington Examiner, observed that the BDS movement is also alive and well within the UCU.

“Worth noting the group also boycotts Israeli academics — another example of the close relationship of BDS and anti-Semitism,” he tweeted.

New York Times bestselling author David Horowitz argues in his latest book, "Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America," that Christians face a clear and present danger of persecution within the United States.

“The war on Christianity is real, and it’s right on our doorstep,” he tells Newsmax magazine in an exclusive interview conducted earlier this year. Horowitz is Jewish.

And as a Christian, I say that the war on Judaism is also real, and it’s right on our doorstep.

The United States was founded on Judeo-Christian values — values that we’re in danger of losing, only to be replaced with statism and globalism if we’re not vigilant.
