In the News (from Breitbart): “A study titled ‘National Demographic Survey of American Jewish College Students 2014,’ conducted in the spring of 2014 by Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, revealed that over half of Jewish college students have experienced anti-Semitism on campus.
“The rates of victimization for students with different social characteristics – such as type of campus, year of study, academic major, demographics, religiosity, or politics – ranged from a low of 44 percent to a high of 73 percent. There was only a slight variation in the rates across the regions of the United States, strongly suggesting that anti-Semitism on campus is a nationwide problem. …

Otherwise, they would have stopped the war!
But they are actually looking for an excuse for the destruction of Israel—and if several thousand die in achieving this goal—it doesn’t matter. Hatred is a greater than love for one’s children!
According to the Torah, there is nothing above human life. It turns out that Israel exchanges thousands of murderers for a kidnapped soldier. But Israel is to blame—and precisely because that lack of unity of itself does not lead the whole world to unification, i.e., it is indirectly responsible for all the wars and suffering…
