American Jews Are Terrified

posted on December 11, 2019

The Atlantic‘s Emma Green writes about the many recent incidents of anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence, including yesterday’s deadly shooting at a kosher grocery store in Jersey City, New Jersey. Later the same day, reports about the Trump administration’s planned executive order targeting anti-Semitism on college campuses also sparked widespread debate. Green writes, “This is the pernicious nature of anti-Semitism: It emerges in many different forms, from all sides of the political spectrum.” She adds, “Anti-Semitism is terrifying because of its myriad forms, and for its ability to sow division among Jews themselves. But it is also terrifying because it is not possible to solve, and it never goes away.”
