First the attackers were radical Islamic extremists, and people protected them – because they were also Muslims.
Then the attackers were radical black preachers, and people protected them – because they were also black.
Then the attackers were alt-right white supremacists, and people protected them – because they were also white.
Then the attackers were progressive Antifa extremists, and people protected them – because they were also progressives.
And each of them came for the Jew – because each of the attackers was breast-fed antisemitism from birth and nurtured by the United Nations which singles out the Jewish State for demonization every day.
Martin Niemoller wrote his poem focused on victims and on his remaining silent because the victims were the “other.” He didn’t realize his complicity in the crime until he suffered the same fate.
The updated version of the poem today is focused on the haters who come from a variety of groups, with each silently shielding its own radicals.
Except for the Jews. While all of the haters come for the Jews and the Jewish State, radical progressive Jews are at the front line calling for the world to attack the most moderate nation in the entire Middle East. In reaction, the right-wing Jews yell at the alt-left Jews to stop the vilification. And the remaining Jews in the middle stay silent, hoping that not engaging in the bilestorm will provide its own haven.
The Jews have always been everyone’s “other.” Today, they are also “others” to themselves. It is a story that played out 2,000 years ago to a tragic end.
