May 27, 2014 - New York – The AJC weekly radio messages are broadcast on the CBS radio network, before The Osgood File. All AJC radio commentaries since 2001 are available at www.ajc.org/radiocommentary.
The full text of this week's commentary follows:
Europe face more bad news.
Saturday, four people, ages 23, 24, 53 and 54, were killed at the Jewish Museum
The next day,
two brothers near a synagogue outside Paris were viciously beaten.
Europeans voted in the European Parliament elections.
the status quo, some supported openly anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi parties.
that such parties will sit in the European Parliament is frightening.
only the most recent signs of a growing trend that AJC has been calling
attention to since 2000.
anti-Semitism comes from three main sources:
neo-Nazi, Holocaust-denying extreme right;
Israel-has-no-right-to-exist extreme left;
the Jew-hating and Israel-hating radical Islamists.
governments must do more to confront this growing menace.
of us who care must speak out.
