It's time to address anti-Semitism.

Jewish people are a small minority of the world's population, especially after the genocide of the last century (and previous purges and genocides). They are a vulnerable minority.

There is a global rise in anti-Semitism that is accompanying the rise of white supremacy and nationalism. We ignore this at our peril.

Please take a look at how much violent rhetoric is directed at George Soros, for instance. There are other wealthy progressives. The hatred directed at Soros is out of all proportion to his philanthropy. Why? Is it because he is Eastern European and Jewish?

Look at all the conspiracy theories frightening people about some shadowy "Jewish conspiracy" involving the media and banking. Where have we seen this before? In Nazi propaganda as they rose to power.

Be aware. Dictatorships build their power by singling out groups of people as "the enemy."

Speak up. Speak out.
