What are the reasons for the rise of anti-Semitism in our time on college campuses and in our neighborhoods? Although Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) are directed against Israel and Jews, anti-Catholic and anti-Protestant actions are also being exposed rapidly in our time. The mainstream media diminishment of a Pacific Catholic voice in front of the Lincoln Memorial, by Native Americans against the Catholic Church, and Black anti-Semites against the Catholic and Jewish churches have been exposed.
The overriding concept is that freedom of speech and of religious conscience is being attacked whether Catholic, Jew or Protestant. The larger picture is of a world battle between internationalists and nationalists. Two of the great challenges to international leadership are the nationalism of Donald Trump and of Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel. These two presently economically growing communities through protectionist policies are an anathema to the United Nations, the European Union, and a world socialist movement ready to destroy our Bill of Rights to be replaced by democratic socialism and direction from the top few elite. Presently we need to identify the monopolistic economic elites in banking and industrial ties to the internationalists through their charities and central bank policies leading to diminishing of conservative nationalistic thinking.
The reason we have a hard time defining anti-Semitism is that we are not the only ones facing religious persecution for the religious conscious beliefs interfering with elite secular socialistic ideas. It is our freedom of conscience and freedom of speech as natural law rights of man, which can challenge a world socialist elite. In large-scale religious groups, the support for Israel and American recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel do not have American Jewish support. Rather they are Protestant responses to a socialist secularization of the world. We Jews and other religious denominations are the Emanuel Goldsteins of the world who in George Orwell’s 1984 are the fictitious enemy of the states as international’s elite world powers.
