Attacks On The Jewish Community Spike As Trump Continues Ignoring Anti-Semitism

As Donald Trump continues to ignore the wave of anti-Semitism that has swept across the country in recent weeks, a new round of attacks on the Jewish community unfolded Monday from coast to coast.

According to the JCC Association of North America, a total of 11 Jewish community centers received bomb threats on Monday alone – the latest in a series of incidents that have taken place over the past several weeks.

As JCC noted today, the bomb threats come “in the aftermath of three waves of bomb threats in January (Jan. 9, Jan. 18, and Jan. 31), resulting in, through today, 69 incidents at 54 JCCs in 27 states and one Canadian province in total.”

The threats all turned out to be hoaxes, the organization noted, but the heightened level of anti-Semitic activity across the country is troubling.

“While we are relieved that all such threats have proven to be hoaxes and that not a single person was harmed, we are concerned about the anti-Semitism behind these threats, and the repetition of threats intended to interfere with day-to-day life,” read the statement from JCC.

Also on Monday, Fox News reported another incident in St. Louis in which more than 100 tombstones were damaged at a Jewish cemetery.

These incidents are only part of a widespread increase in the number of anti-Semitic attacks that have occurred this year.

“Anti-Semitic hate crimes comprise the largest portion of religiously motivated attacks in the United States,” the Huffington Post reported on Monday. “In New York City alone, such attacks have more than doubled already in 2017.”

Ivanka Trump, who is Jewish, took to Twitter on Monday to denounce such hate:

At this hour, though, there has still been no condemnation offered directly from the President of the United States, despite his willingness to express outrage over things that don’t exist, like widespread voter fraud and fake terrorist attacks.

When given the opportunity to directly address the disturbing spike in anti-Semitic activity during last week’s unhinged press conference, Trump chose to ignore the issue and instead attack the Jewish reporter who raised it.

After the childish and unstable president whined about the question and claimed to be the “the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life,” he ordered the journalist to “sit down.”

Unfortunately, this is just par for the course for this president. He ignores actual problems that demand real leadership and instead latches on to debunked conspiracy theories because it satisfies his supporters and aligns with his perverted worldview.

If there was ever a time for Donald Trump to use the megaphone of his Twitter account to express anger and disappointment over something that is actually happening in the real world, now would be it.
