Who are the anti-Semites?
Former Israeli ambassador to Washington, Michael Oren said: “Those who charge US President Donald Trump with fueling right-wing anti-Semitism should recall that no one had accused his predecessor, Barack Obama, of spurring anti-Semitism from the left… “Obviously there is problem with anti-Semitism and we have to take it seriously…Anti-Semitism is not new to America. “It is very precedented…“Yes, there is an uptick in anti-Semitism, but the conversation about it is not going in the right direction.”… “But there is anti-Semitism on the left, and nobody blamed Obama for that. During my time in Washington [as Israeli ambassador], I never encountered right-wing anti-Semitism, but I experienced a lot of anti-Semitism, mainly on campuses. Ask Jewish students in America if they fear anti-Semitism. They do — not from the right, but from the left.”
God says: “For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me.”…“Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret, him will I put to silence; whoever has a haughty eyes and a proud heart, him will I not endure.”… “He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.”…“With his mouth the godless destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous escape.” (Psalm 31:13; 101:5; Proverbs 10:18; 11:9)
The Jerusalem Connection says: Basically an anti-Semite is a God hater. Asaph understood that when he prayed: “O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you—Cover their faces with shame, Lord, so that they will seek your name. May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace. Let them know that you, whose name is Yahweh—that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.” (Psalm 83:1-5, 16-18) Anti-Semitism is the same spirit that Jesus spoke about when he said, “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.” (Matthew 12:30)
