According to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the current spike in anti-Semitic attacks against Jews in the United States is eerily reminiscent of Germany back in the 1930s.
“This is a very dangerous thing we’re watching,” Giuliani said during an appearance on Newsmax.
“That’s a very big sign of how bad things are and how fast we’re moving toward the wrong kind of government. I mean, a really fundamental change in our way of life,” he added.
Giuliani was lamenting the incidents coast to coast and around the world were inspired by the Hamas attacks on Israel after former President Donald Trump left office with peace deals being signed in the Middle East.
“I watched a film of this stuff, and the videos: I think we’re in Germany, back in the ’30s,” Giuliani told host Greg Kelly during his interview on the program.
“This should not happen in America,” he continued.
Giuliani noted anti-Semitic sentiment in America is not just morally bankrupt, but it is also misdirected at American Jews who might not even support the state of Israel’s policies.
“This can’t happen in America,” the former mayor stated. “I would say this couldn’t happen to the Jewish people in America; they’re too much a part of America, they built America too much – too much respect for them.”
Giuliani then went on to lament the mainstream media’s opting not to cover the story with the proper amount of concern for the Jewish community.
“The censorship is frightening,” Giuliani stated. “When you think about it, they’re attacking Jewish people because you’re Jewish. They’re attacking Jewish people, not Israelis. Some of these people might not even agree with the policies in Israel.”
Donald Trump’s former personal attorney then said, “We know the Jewish community is very divided about it. They’re getting beat up because they’re Jewish, not because they’re Israeli. And they say terrible things about Jewish people, all the usual anti-Semitic stuff,” adding in conclusion, “This is sick, but we shouldn’t be surprised: Palestinians are trained in their schools to hate Jews, and by the way they hate Americans.”
What’s really disturbing is how common place these sort of vicious attacks have become over the course of the last few years, especially as more and more anti-Israel sentiment continues to infect the current progressive movement.
This kind of behavior is not acceptable and the media, along with politicians and local leaders, need to make that crystal clear.
