There was a brief time when the world recognized the danger of anti-semitism as a sign that injustice to Jews was injustice to all. After the carnage of WWII where millions of people died, including 6 million Jews, the world was sensitive to the signs of intolerance and hatred by a large group against a minority. They were educated in the fact that the Jews were simply the proverbial "canary in the coal mine" and that Hitler's ambitions went much further than only elminating the Jews. The lesson was very expensive, causing the unnecessary deaths of over 40 million people.
Unfortunately, this sensitivity only lasted a few decades after the war and Jews (particularly Israeli Jews) are once more on the forefront of another hate campaign. According to the ADL (Anti Defamation League) in a recent statement by Abraham Foxman, the Muslim press is even worse than Nazi propaganda in demonizing the Jewish people. Muslims have taken the banner of Hitler with his Jew-hatred and are carrying it proudly aloft into battle.
What is the world doing this time?
The same thing they did last time - making excuses for the anti-semites. Once again we are being led down the primrose path that if only we understood Arabs and Muslims better we would be able to talk them out of this kind of behavior. The problem is that history has shown us time and time again that there is a time to talk and a time to fight. You will never talk these fanatics out of their hatred of Jews (and every other infidel) until you either kill them or the majority of Muslims stop supporting the idea that they are superior to Jews and any other non-Muslim. The Germans and Japanese thought they were superior as well and look what happened to them.
Islam is not superior, it is just different. The key is that just because someone is different than you are does not make them a target for you to kill. Forget the liberal hogwash about tolerance. This is true tolerance and respect that everyone on the planet should have for each other. Yes, we have differences but we still deserve respect from one another to live our lives in the pursuit of happiness for ourselves and our families.
Until the world remembers once again that Muslim hatred of Jews is a sympton of a much larger problem and they need to deal with the root of that problem even if it requires force, we will continue to march toward a time that may kill more innocent people than even Hitler did.
