War in Gaza Update #14.5
Here is a quick update on the War in Gaza.
Enclosed in this post is more news about the shocking incidents of antisemitism at protests in countries around the world. Don’t let anyone fool you when they say that it is only about protesting against Israeli actions. If that was the case synagogues wouldn’t be vandalized, Jews in Britain wouldn’t write about feeling unsafe and scumbags wouldn’t yell “Jews to the ovens.”
Every country can and should be criticized, but if that is all that was going on we wouldn’t have those stories would we.
