In Honor of Passover: A Primer on Modern Antisemitism

One of my favorite blogs to read is Seraphic Secret, a site run by Robert J. Avrech, a devout Jew and Hollywood screenwriter. His posts are always informative and compelling, frequently on the topic of Jewish life and religion.

With tonight being the beginning of the Passover holiday, I wanted to post a link to his post from today where he details all the ways that Jews are threatened in modern times. His biggest worry comes not from Hamas, Hizbullah, or other terrorist groups, whose intentions are transparent. The more worrisome enemies of the Jews are the "softer" enemies, who claim on one hand to want to help the Jews, and on the other hand do everything they can to undermine and destroy Israel and Jewish life and tradition.

Read his excellent post to get an idea of the threats to Jews today, and be grateful for this civilization which, without Jewish contribution to history, could not exist as it does.
