Anti-semitisim (or as it should be more properly referred – ‘Jew Hatred’) is never acceptable….EVER. There cannot be enough voices speaking out against it. I now use mine.
It is very sad that sections of British politics have become increasingly comfortable associating with this evil bigotry. The fact that it is even an issue in 2018 makes a mockery of all the rhetoric about ‘equality’.
The leader of the British Labour Party has a very dubious track record when it comes to where his sympathies lie. One example of this was recently highlighted when he felt it was ok to ‘like’ a painting which peddled conspiratorial clap trap against the Jewish people. Truly astonishing. No-matter where your political leanings reside (whether left or right), this is an issue which rises far above all that. Jew hatred needs to be called out for what it is….vile, hate-filled prejudice. It is wrong as wrong can be.
Relatively recent history teaches us how spine tinglingly wretched anti-Jewishness is. Never forget, six million Jewish people were murdered in the holocaust. Even after 70 years, it still boggles the mind that such an awful atrocity could happen in the heart of Europe. But it happened because a society became comfortable with anti-Jewish sentiment. It was seen as acceptable, and nonsensical conspiracies were believed to be true. That’s why it is imperative for all of us to take a stand against this.
Jewish people will always have a special place in my heart. Jesus himself was a Jew. He loved his people dearly, even when he was misunderstood. The bible also has a deep love for the Jewish people. We are actually encouraged to pray them (Psalm 122:6).
Full respect to those brave people who have spoken of their experiences of hatred. Below is a video by a labour politician who spoke in parliament of her experiences. It is totally worth watching.
