Liberal Jews Better Wake Up Before It's Too Late

Liberal Jews Better Wake Up Before It's Too Late
Back in Berlin in the 1920s and well into the 30s, many, if not most, Jewish liberals of that time and place thought it could never happen to them. They were good Germans, after all, culturally advanced members of a sophisticated society much like today's Manhattan.
As we all know, they were dead wrong. Hitler put the atheist communists and the ultra-orthodox Hasidim on the same trains to Auschwitz. He could not have cared less about what side of what they were on
At first glance, it might seem excessive to reference such extreme events, but you don't have to be Yogi Berra to see the potential for déjà vu all over again. After all, it undoubtedly seemed excessive in 1932 as well, especially when Hitler lost the presidential election -- only to be appointed chancellor in 1933. The rest, as they say, is history. And history, as Marx told us, repeats itself "the second time as farce" -- only this time it will be farce without laughter.
Now we are living in another world of rising anti-Semitism, which some, for their own convenience or perhaps a misbegotten nostalgia, like to ascribe equally or even disproportionally to the right, when it is clear the new anti-Semitism, from our college campuses to the streets of Paris, is coming largely from Islamic terrorists and their sympathizers augmented and multiplied by the left. It is further enhanced by social and ethnic groups enraged -- with the encouragement of the Democratic Party -- by identity politics. In the world of intersectionality, someone must be the low man or woman on the totem pole of blame and evil.
