… there is a slight rise in antisemitism in the United States! 15 percent of Americans hold anti-Semitic views! That’s an increase of 3 percent since 2009 but on par with hater levels in 2007 and 2005!
…which means that it is time to set aside the fraying fabric of our community for a minute and stand shoulder to shoulder with the Anti-Defamation League against the haters.
…unless, of course, you have seen “Defamation,” (watch it here) in which case, you will take Abe Foxman and ADL survey results (with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent in this case – which wipes out the purported increase, but why quibble?) with a grain of salt.
…in which case, please return to cuddling the fraying fabric and carry on!
