Caught Drawing Breath While Being Jewish
And so it begins. A Muslim man breaks into the Seattle Jewish Federation, which only a week before hosted a pro-Israel rally, and shoots six women, killing 1, and among the wounded was a pregnant woman, all because he was 'angry' at Israel. The crime these women committed? Drawing breath while being Jewish. How dare they!
So how are the authorities in Washington State reacting? Apparently the local ADL has offered the courageous advice of telling Jews to not go to Shabbat services and stay in their homes. Can't imagine Abe Foxman is happy with that. And the police are now stepping up security at synagogues and mosques, the latter I'm not quite understanding why. Do they think the Jews will riot and attacks Muslims? Sounds like a waste of money and resources to me.
My fear? The anti-Semitic backlash is just beginning.
