Europe is re-embracing the oldest of all hatreds: firebombing a Wuppertal, Germany, synagogue; killing four at the Jewish Museum in Brussels; French anti-semitic rioting; and increasing acceptance of anti-Semitic jokes and comments. The hatred comes from three distinct groups: Muslims, far-right ideologues, and far-left ideologues.
World War II is still within the living memory of some people, and it’s aftermath is within the living memory of many more. When I was younger, I never would have believed this possible. Now that I see it happening, I am disgusted with humanity. The least we can do is denounce such hatred when we encounter it.
