Antisemitism is on the rise in Europe and is becoming more commonplace here in the US. I can’t believe no one is yet saying it, but what do you expect when you allow hundreds of thousands of Muslims into the country from areas around the world that are terror hot spots and a large portion of them we have no way to properly vet? In America, what do yuo expect when you have eight years of an administration that actively divided the country?
You can’t possibly think that the new wave of antisemitism is all coming from alt right skinheads. Do you think the Left will even consider anti Zionist progressives or radical Muslims? Not a chance.

At the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump spoke about the recent anti-Semitic threats targeting the Jewish community.
He received a tour of the museum Tuesday, becoming the second sitting U.S. president to visit the museum along with former President Barack Obama.
“This tour was a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms,” the president said.
“The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” Trump continued.
The president’s remarks come amid an increase in reports of bomb threats and vandalism directed at Jewish centers across the country.
In University City, Mo., more than 100 headstones were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery, which contains the remains of Holocaust survivors.
Trump’s daughter Ivanka took to Twitter Monday calling out religious intolerance.
America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers. #JCC

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted directly at the president, saying he must be the first to speak out against threats targeting the Jewish community.
JCC threats, cemetery desecration & online attacks are so troubling & they need to be stopped. Everyone must speak out, starting w/ @POTUS.
