Eighty years ago, anti-Semitism was spreading through parts of Europe with the rise of Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler’s intense hatred for the Jews. His anti-Semitic views led to the horrible slaughter of over 6 million Jews – men, women, children and infants.
Many believed that when Hitler and Nazi Germany were defeated in 1945, that his anti-Semitic views would disappear as well. Those views became so unpopular due their historic link to Hitler and Nazism than many of those who still hold them today are often referred to as neo-Nazis.
However, with the influx of hundreds of thousands of Muslims into Europe, anti-Semitism is spreading once again.
(One News Now) – The resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe has reportedly been reignited by “ill-assimilated” Muslims who have been welcomed and embraced by European leaders as refugees.
European nations – including Germany, France and the United Kingdom – have regularly been plagued with anti-Semitism and Muslim takeovers of areas and Islamic terror attacks due to leaders taking a pro-refugee approach to politics, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s fairly recent welcoming of nearly 1 million Muslim refugees into Germany.
“Merkel’s decision in 2015 to open the nation’s arms to 1 million mostly Muslim refugees has created a double threat for Germany’s roughly 120,000 Jews: rising anti-Semitism from the newcomers and a resurgent right-wing nationalist movement spawned by the arrival of so many immigrants,” USA Today reported.
Changing times …
It’s interesting that many Democrats and members of the mainstream media criticize neo-Nazis for their anti-Semitic views while at the same time they continually condemn Israel and supported Barack Obama’s repeated anti-Semitic actions and his efforts to distance the United States from Israel. How can they condemn others for holding many of the same views as they themselves hold?
