The following letter to the editor – written by ACT for America chapter leader Robert Norvell – appeared in the March 8, 2017 edition of the Jonesboro Sun – Burkasrugly
In the first two months of 2017 there have been over 70 bomb threats against Jewish
synagogues and community centers. In addition Jewish cemeteries in Philadelphia,
Brooklyn, Rochester and St. Louis have been vandalized. The FBI reports there have
been ten times as many hate crimes against Jews than Muslims. There are only 14 million
Jews left in the world thanks to Herr Hitler’s genocide seventy years ago. The Jewish people rightfully feel under attack.
It is amazing how many elite colleges on the east and west coast have faculty who openly
advocate Jew hatred. This vitriolic loathing is then communicated to their students
who seem to have lost all reasoning ability. Anti-Semitism is once again on the march
in our world.
No Christian can engage in anti-Semitism. Jesus was born into a pious Jewish home. Jesus
stressed that he was the fulfillment of the Old Testament tradition. He said, “I have come
to fulfill the Law and the Prophets.” All of us who are Christians owe an unpayable debt
of gratitude to our spiritual ancestors, the Jewish people.
Meanwhile, the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan continue to spew the vilest possible
Jew hatred. Hamas wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. And Iran is racing to
obtain nuclear weapons to be used against Israel. The mad Ayatollahs promise Israel a
Holocaust in an afternoon while making numerous movies showing a destroyed smoking radioactive Israel. Hezbollah, Iran’s state sponsored terror group, has surrounded Israel with more than 50,000 rockets capable of carrying explosives, nerve gas and biological agents.
In 1945 as the Allies rolled into Nazi Germany numerous death camps were discovered where six million Jews had been shot and gassed. After the Holocaust the watchword became “Never again.”. Now Iran who denies the first Holocaust is feverishly at work planning a second Holocaust whereby Israel is destroyed in a nuclear fireball. It seems “Never again” has turned into “Once again”.
