In the News (from The Guardian): “Holocaust memorial in France defaced with swastikas” Large, black swastikas were painted on to the memorial at Drancy, the site of the second world war deportation camp from where tens of thousands of Jews were sent to their deaths. The vandalism, in the middle of the Passover celebrations, sparked anger and unease among France’s Jewish population, the largest in Western Europe. Situated on the northeastern outskirts of Paris, the internment camp was the site to which French Jews were taken on route to concentration camps in Eastern Europe.
In the News (from JTA): “Survey: ‘Sharp rise in anti-Semitism in 2009‘” A new survey shows that anti-Semitism rose sharply in early 2009 after a decrease in 2008. The survey, conducted by the Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University in cooperation with the European Jewish Congress, was released Monday on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day and at the start of the Durban II anti-racism conference.
The survey’s authors estimate that there were close to 1,000 manifestations of all types of anti-Semitism throughout the world in January. The economic crisis that began in the summer also triggered anti-Jewish reactions, most notably in Eastern Europe and the Arab world.
My Comment: Kabbalah explains that this is caused by people’s growing egoism, which unconsciously demands to be corrected. The nations of the world have the right to demand from the nation of Israel that which it possesses and does not share – the method of correction, Kabbalah. Let them take it! See Items 66-71 of the “Introduction to the Book of Zohar.”
