I occasionally pick up The Jerusalem Post at the famous out-of-town newspaper kiosk on Harvard Square (for ongoing news about the Middle East I rely on its very informative sister publication The Jerusalem Report). In the current international edition my attention was immediately grabbed by a big advertisement on the very first page of the paper. The headline of the ad reads “Jews in America… Wake Up! Anti-Semitism is Raising its Ugly Head Once Again”.
The rest of the ad is worth quoting in full: “Do not ignore the warning signs! The U.S. economy worsens… countless neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups are spreading their venomous message on the internet …with public demonstrations… calling for violence against Jews… and praising Hitler as a ‘true hero’!…..They mean what they say… and they mean you!!! Unlike the dark days of the Holocaust… with gratitude to G-D, blessed be He… there is now a Jewish homeland that awaits you! Come home to Israel before it’s too late!”
