Looking Evil in the Face

When I was young, I often heard “never again” in connection with the Holocaust.  I believed it.  I was naive enough to think that mankind had learned something and that never again would any group be subjected to the horror of a Holocaust.  Now I am older and know better.  The Balkans and Rwanda, among other places, taught us otherwise.  And now segments of society are turning again to the Jews.

In a recent anti-Zionist/anti-Semitic protest in Boston, among the demonstrators’ chants was  “Jews back to Birkenau.”  The chant itself shows the inability of many to separate anti-Zionism from anti-Semitism, and it makes my stomach churn to contemplate such evil.  Let us be clear what these people are calling for:

Holocaust

All decent people must oppose those who would repeat this

Update–July 23, 2014:

See here for more on rioters chanting “Gas the Jews.”  Unsurprisingly, this time it’s in France.  There is no depth to which these people will not sink.

Update–August 21, 2014:

At Temple University, a Jewish student is assaulted and called a kike.
