Anti-Semitism Starts at Home!

Israel National News reported this morning that the World Zionist Organization will hold a seminar in France from December 10-12 to combat anti-Semitism. "It is planned to be the first in a series of seminars around the world that will unite those who face bigotry. Such recent incidents as this week's Judeo-phobic posters in France decrying a 'Jewish mafia', the murder of Ilan Halimi in 2006 and other incidents have caused many people worldwide to realize the matter is a burning one."
The WZO will then travel to other nations to explain the spreading problem and give Jews there an understanding that they're not alone, and there's an organization they can turn to when anti-Semitism hits.
commend the WZO for tackling this eternal issue. Although it seems impossible to wipe anti-Semitism out of the hearts of our enemies and those who are being brainwashed into becoming our enemies, the idea of strengthening Jews is appropriate.
Almost a year ago, I wrote a blog on anti-Semitism: http://voices-magazine.blogspot.com/2009/12/anti-semitism-at-home-and-abroad.html
Nothing has changed. I wrote that the actions that Israel takes with the Jews of its own country are what cause elevations in anti-Semitism. The messages that the State of Israel sends out about its land cause a rise or decrease in anti-Semitism.
Read the blog above! The message is clear. When Israel understands that the Land belongs to the Jewish people, and is willing to proclaim it to ourselves and the world, anti-Semitism will decrease. When Israel strengthens its nation, builds its country and supports its people, anti-Semitism will decrease.

But when the world sees a divided Israel, it sees a weak Jewish people, and understands that the time is right to attack Jews wherever they may be.
People compare the level of anti-Semitism today to that of Pre-Holocaust Europe. At that time there was no State of Israel. Jews in Eretz Yisrael were living under British rule, taking orders from the British government. Today we have B"H a beautiful State of Israel, if only we'd appreciate it. If only we'd work to build it and increase Jewish life and vibrancy everywhere, if only we didn't feel like and act like we were under US rule.
Jewish pride, Jewish growth, Jewish unity and Jewish strength within the State of Israel are THE factors that will reduce anti-Semitism throughout the world.
