Denouncing Anti-Semitism


Heroic remarks from NYC Councilman Greenfield after pro-Palestinian activists protested the commemoration of 1.1 million people murdered in Auschwitz concentration camp in the Holocaust. 



Calling a spade-a-spade…anti-semitism is once again alive and well due to acceptance and even promotion of Anti-Semitism/Zionism, and unfortunately, in some cases, it seems like it’s coming from the top-down!



The words and actions are fanning anti-semitic terror attacks around the globe and even setting the stage for a regional war in the Middle East. 



What a shame that we need to remind some of the First Amendment of the Constitution that guarantees freedom of religion, whatever your practices. 



Protestant pastor, Martin Niemoller, famously said:



“First they came for the Jews

and I did not speak out 

because I was not a Jew.



Then they came for the Communists

and I did not speak out

because I was not a Communist



Then they came for the trade unionists

and I did not speak out

because I was not a trade unionist.



Then they came for me

and there was no one left

to speak out for me.”



I believe, I know, that there are many true decent human beings and real leaders out there that will speak out against the very ugly head of blind hatred and bigotry in this world. 



May G-d show mercy on all his creatures and instill love, tolerance, and genuine respect for all races, colors, and religions.
