Throughout history, poor economic conditions have formed the backdrop of hateful anti-Semitism. Whether it was the 13th century expulsion of Jews from England or the 19th century Russian pogroms or the Nazi Holocaust, insidious anti-Semitic hate speech always preceded hateful, violent actions.
Consequently, it is not surprising that some of the economic protesters at the Wall Street sit-in and other “occupations” have used graphic signs and obscene language to blame “Wall St. Jews” and “Jewish Billionaires” for America’s financial woes. One Occupy LA protester told Reason TV, “Zionist Jews… need to be run out of this country.”
This kind of hateful rhetoric is alarming and deserves a firm repudiation by the mainstream American media and political leaders—along with all of us, who serve the Jewish Messiah—Yeshua—our Savior!
