Acute concern continues to grow about the antisemitism and Nazi imagery now on such rampant and brazen display in the West.
In America, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has spawned anti-Israel incitement on dozens of campuses, involving repeated accusations of Nazism and fascism along with virtually every other crime against humanity.
In Britain, some of the most egregious examples of this venom have surfaced in the Labour Party under the leadership of the ultra-leftist Jeremy Corbyn and his “Momentum” comrades.
Last week, Momentum joined other far-left and pro-Palestinian activists at a meeting in London as part of a national tour to build support for their Israel and Jew-bashing platform. Two Jewish women who went to protest Labour antisemitism were roughed up, with one of them hospitalized after being kicked in the head.
Jews who support Israel are increasingly being called Nazis and fascists, particularly if they draw attention to the disproportionate amount of antisemitism in the Muslim community. This obscene comparison is itself deemed antisemitic under the definition adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
