The real driver of antisemitism

The real driver of antisemitism

The student protests taking place on University Campuses around the US should be a wake-up call.

Over the past few months I’ve tried to find ways to describe the stain of antisemitism using language which is suitable for a social media audience and which adheres to 21st century notions of the way in which the world works.

But frankly, I’m done tiptoeing around the topic.

The ‘student protests’ taking place on University Campuses around the US over the past few days should be the wake-up call that we all needed to confirm that this is not a rational phenomenon.

Watching social media coverage of the next generation of supposed leaders of industry threatening violence and chanting ‘death to the Jews’ should not lead to another round of pointless dialogue which excuses such behaviour as ‘youthful protest’ or tries to tie it back to what’s taking place in the Middle East.

This is not an issue of free speech. Nor is it about politics, or Palestine, or Gaza, or any one of a dozen other concocted labels designed to put a plaster over the reality of what is taking place.

This is raw, unadulterated, irrational hatred.

In 21st century parlance we might call this a mental health issue and, at the very least, we should recognise that this behaviour – this zombie-like group blood lust – is a sickness, and not the response of normal rational people.

But we have to go back two thousand years, to New Testament times, to identify it for what it really is.

It’s a form of what used to be called ‘demonic possession’.

Yes, I know that’s an unpopular view in the ‘enlightened’ 21st century and that we don’t use such language anymore – but if you have a better explanation for what drives antisemitism, please share it with us.

For two thousand years the Jews have endured this irrational hatred. The excuses and justifications for it change and the ’causes’ which whip it up are varied and many – but ultimately, it’s always about eliminating the Jews because it’s driven by something external and intelligent.

It’s time we called a spade a spade and recognised this evil extremism for what it is. It’s not the exuberance of youth and it can’t be countered through debate or education. History teaches us that, as one excuse for it gets demolished a new one simply rises up to take its place.

This evil is real, it’s tireless, and it’s driven by something external and intelligent.

And now, your kids are its next generation of hosts.

It CAN be dealt with – but first, you need to honestly recognise it for what it is.
