Blatant Anti-Semitism

My blood ran cold when I read the statements made by Michael Neumann in this article from Honest Reporting.

He once wrote,

"My sole concern is indeed to help the Palestinians, and I try to play for keeps. I am not interested in the truth, or justice, or understanding, or anything else, except so far as it serves that purpose...I would use anything, including lies, injustice and obfuscation, to do so. If an effective strategy means that some truths about the Jews don't come to light, I don't care. If an effective strategy means encouraging reasonable anti-Semitism or reasonable hostility to Jews, I don't care. If it means encouraging vicious racist anti-Semitism, or the destruction of the State of Israel, I still don't care." (emphasis mine--L.)

Anti-Semitism isn't a problem, hmmm? Look away, children. Just ignore that madman behind the curtain.

The worst he can do is work to make it acceptable to have you murdered.

What I find unacceptable is that someone like Neumann is still walking the streets, advocating racially based hatred. That, Virginia, is a hate crime.

Here is someone trying to downplay the rise of Anti-Semitism as something minor and forgettable. He's trying to tell us that there's nothing to be concerned about, even though his own statements damn him with hypocrisy.

We live in a pivotal moment in time. Will we stand to do the right thing, and call out the new face of evil, or will we turn away and allow millions to be callously murdered again?

This passes for acceptable these days. Very sad. And very dangerous.
