Anti Semitic words in print and spoken whether in person or broadcast is ever more common along with anti Semitic acts even violence.  It is coming from our bi coastal urban elites in their ivory towers, it’s coming from business and industry capitulation to BDS.  It’s coming from limousine liberals and academia.  It is rife here and in Europe among secular progressives and socialists, as well as national socialists, the klan, and progressive Christian groups.  It’s coming from the very streets of our biggest cities directed at religious Jews living among them.  This anti Israel anti Semitic wave must be stoped.  Teaching tolerance isn’t enough.  One must b taught Christian love because in those who love others there’s no place for hate.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.   American Values President Gary Bauer warned that the “ancient evil” of anti-Semitism is “alive and well” among those in powerful positions both in the United States and abroad.

During a breakfast to honor Israel at the NRB 2020 Christian Media Convention, Bauer, recently appointed by President Trump to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, said he “worries” about subtle anti-Semitism in the U.S. Often, he said, it comes disguised and “all dressed up.”

“You have people in powerful positions, people who went to all the right schools, who run the universities, who deliver us the news. The anti-Semitism is alive and well among those people,” he said at the breakfast sponsored by  Combat Anti-Semitism International Christian Embassy Jerusalem  and  NRBTV .

Sometimes anti-Semitism “comes disguised as a little old lady,” Bauer said, referring to longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who once said the Jews “need to go back to where they came from , Germany and Poland.” (Watch Helen Thomas' comments  here .)


“Anti-Semitism has climbed out from underneath its rock,” he emphasized. Bauer pointed out that in several major European cities, mobs walked through the streets chanting, “Death to the Jews.” The Labor Party of Great Britain is also “riddled with anti-Semitism,” and in the United States, synagogues have been routinely attacked. 

“We’ve had Jews beaten on the streets not only of European countries. We’ve had Jews beaten in recent months on the streets of New York City, a city that prides itself as being one of the most progressive cities in America,” Bauer said.

“We’ve got anti-Semitism in the finest universities in America. ... Normal, good Americans save all their lives to send their children to these universities, and some professor is giving them Jew-hatred in the classroom.”

Anti-Semitism is becoming so normalized in America, that when Congress tried to pass a resolution condemning the anti-Semitic comments of two of its members, “the politics got so involved that before it was over, the resolution was condemning every hatred known to man, and of course by doing that it wasn’t doing anything. They couldn’t bring themselves to simply condemn anti-Semitism by members in their ranks,” Bauer stressed.


“If you hear somebody questioning the historic presence of the Jews in the Holy Land, there’s only one motivation for that. That’s anti-Semitism. But the Palestinian Authority does it regularly. So does the United Nations,” he continued.

Christians have an obligation to fight anti-Semitism, Bauer stressed, because “an attack on the Jewish presence in their homeland is an attack on Christianity too.”

“The Jews in Israel are not visitors. They didn’t arrive yesterday. They didn’t move to Israel a few years ago. Israel is the cradle of the Jewish people. It is their past, it is their present, and it is their future,” Bauer said.

He also criticized  Christian denominations  that pass resolutions not condemning countries such as Russia, China, or Venezuela, countries known for severe human rights abuses, but condemn Israel.

“And they do it in the name of Christ. It’s outrageous,” Bauer said. “... These mainline denominations and their hateful resolutions do not speak for us. You cannot be a Christian and hate Jews. You simply can’t.”

Bauer said Israel is the only nation on Earth that was created by a sovereign act of God, adding, “The Jewish people don’t occupy the land. They own the land.”

Amid rising anti-Semitism,  Christian United for Israel , the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S., will be releasing an upcoming documentary, titled  “Never Again? ” The film engages contemporary audiences with the horrific events of the Holocaust and demonstrates why the events of 75 years ago must be understood and remembered by the coming generation.

Writer/producer Rick Eldridge told The Christian Post that the film has a “current and relevant message” for today as “we are still seeing that same sort of prejudice going on, even in America.”


“Could the Holocaust happen again? The answer is yes. Maybe in different ways than a concentration camp, but it’s happening on the streets of Brooklyn, in synagogues,” he said. 

“It could happen again because people are indoctrinated and it all begins with words,” he added. “Words hurt. Words become actions and actions become philosophies and ways of life and before long, we have it built into us. We’ve seen it in our culture throughout history, and it’s hard to explain and understand when you see what people do to each other.”

“If we stop and look and listen and begin to evaluate, ‘Why do we feel the way we feel?’ maybe things would change,” he added. “We’ve used the word tolerance instead of love. Tolerance has limitations, love is universal. The hope is we’ll educate and understand the heart of this matter and people will leave with a better understanding and personal place of, ‘What can I do to make a difference?’ The message of the film is love, not hate. It’s an acceptance and tolerance of all people and all cultures.”

Actually it isn’t.  Israel is a great country and it is the right thing to support her and her people but Israel has no further role to play in Biblical prophecy upto the second coming.  After the second coming  when the New Jerusalem sits in an area much lager than but over the present one, then after the judgement the final battle between good and evil happens on that geographical area but those who lived there up to the 2nd coming will be on both sides of this battle just like people from everywhere else will be.  The losing side is destroyed by hell while the winning side had eternal life on a world recreated from the ashes.  This has nothing to to with the Israel we know today.

Anti Semitic words in print and spoken whether in person or broadcast is becoming more common along with anti Semitic acts of all kinds, even violence.  It is coming from our bi coastal urban elites in their ivory towers, it’s coming from business and industry in their capitulation to BDS.  It’s coming from limousine liberals and academia teaching it to our kids and young adults. It is rife here and in Europe among secular progressives, leftist party’s, and socialists, as well as national socialists, the klan, and now even some progressive Christian groups.  It’s coming from the very streets of our biggest cities directed at religious Jews living among them.  This has happened to the ultra orthodox all to often lately. This anti Israel anti Semitic wave must be stoped.  Jewish Americans are great Americans and Israel 🇮🇱 is a great and awesome country building a first world economy, cutting edge agriculture, technology, pharmaceuticals and much more with relatively few people and a small amount of land. Teaching tolerance isn’t enough because people claiming to teach it are themselves the least tolerant.  One must be taught Christian love because in those who love others there’s no place for hate.  There is no place in Christianity for anti semitism.

They are national socialists and democrat kkk members.  They are small numbers compared to the urban progressive anti Semites.  All anti semitism is evil and wrong.  Don’t you agree?  Aren’t you pleased to see conservatives and evangelical Christians denouncing anti Semites and anti Semitism?

Those comments are factually not true.  The fine people as we clearly know were the people on both sides of the confederate statue debate.  National socialists and democrat founded and populated klan nor antifa were included in that and    they were all condemned in the strongest of terms.    There were no Republicans at that protest.

Gosh, that's not true. He did not say white supremacists were fine people. It's a shame people still think this is true. I don't know if you are aware of this, but in (basically) the same breath that Trump said "fine people" he explicitly excluded those white supremacists. He specifically said he wasn't talking about them.

Also, notice the context. He's talking about the debates over taking down Civil War statues and the renaming of a park.

Trump : "Excuse me, excuse me. They didn’t put themselves -- and you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides . You had people in that group. Excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name."

Reporter : "George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same."

Trump : "George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down -- excuse me, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?"

Reporter : "I do love Thomas Jefferson."

Trump : "Okay, good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue?

"So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people -- and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists -- because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.

You have no proof only your wishful thinking that those vile people might be Republicans. In the meantime those that are described by the seeded article are the soul mates of secular progressive leftists.  Anti semitism is a left wing issue.

"...the white supremacists spouting Jews will not replace us are republican, not democrats."

Maybe they're neither Republicans nor Democrats specifically but are both and/or neither. In my opinion antisemitism is not limited to any one party or race or ethnicity and trying to limit it to any specific group is infantile.  For many years it has been both visibly patent and hidden latent, but now the existence of Israel as the Jewish State has given those who have hidden their Jew-hatred that which they feel is an opportunity to give vent to what they have been suppressing.  Now it is UNFAIR (and please note that I said UNFAIR) criticism of Israel and Zionism that they can now openly expound, notwithstanding that it is clearly understood that it is now known as the NEW antisemitism.  

Even though I grew up just outside of a "RESTRICTED" (i.e. Jews not allowed) neighbourhood, and was not permitted to ski at the private club that bore the greeting sign "NO DOGS OR JEWS ALLOWED" and the Jewish community was forced to build its own Golf and Country Club, I have never in my lifetime seen the intensity and amount of antisemitism that is rampant today.  And I have seen reports verifying what the author has said about specific sects of Christianity and their antisemitic resolutions.

So saying it's just the white supremacists or the skinheads and they are all Republicans is more than just a stretch, and how do you describe Democrats Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib or Linda Sarsour or anyone who supports BDS, INCLUDING Bernie Sanders?

Maybe it's time to play Gentleman's Agreement again.

I am willing to bet not ONE of the fine folks who keep bringing that out-of-context quote up have NEVER even BOTHERED themselves to do one iota of real RESEARCH on that topic so they could speak as an informed individual instead of re-bleating something they were told. No matter how wrong it is .

Barry Goldwater's father was Jewish, although he himself was Christian. Before a few weeks ago, the answer for Democrats was zero, so don't get too proud.
