Love The Jewish People

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 26, 2018

         “SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE JEWISH.” IT IS A PHRASE OFTEN USED BY PEOPLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST CHARGES THEY ARE ANTI-SEMITIC.

         IN MY CASE, IT’S TRUE. SOME OF MY VERY BEST FRIENDS ARE JEWISH. I SAY THIS AMID AN INCREASE IN ANTI-SEMITISM IN AMERICA AND EUROPE. ANTI-SEMITIC INCIDENTS HAVE INCREASED BY 57 PERCENT FROM 2016 TO 2017, ACCORDING TO THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE.

         THERE ARE A NUMBER OF REASONS FOR THIS, INCLUDING IGNORANCE AND THE BELIEF IN OLD CANARDS ABOUT JEWS RUNNING THE BANKING INDUSTRY AND HOLLYWOOD AND PULLING THE STRINGS OF GOVERNMENT LEADERS. SOME MUSLIMS CONTINUALLY SPEW HATRED OF JEWS.

         THEN THERE IS THE BELIEF THAT JEWS AS A RELIGION KILLED JESUS AND THE STAIN SHOULD REMAIN ON THEM FOREVER. EXCEPT THAT JESUS CAME TO DIE FOR OUR SINS AND SHED HIS BLOOD THAT THOSE WHOM GOD HAD CHOSEN FOR HIS OWN MIGHT BE SAVED. JESUS WILLINGLY LAID DOWN HIS LIFE. NO ONE COULD TAKE IT FROM HIM.

         WANT TO FIGHT ANTI-SEMITISM? MAKE JEWISH FRIENDS. INVITE THEM TO A MEAL. SHARE A SEDER WITH THEM. IT WILL HELP YOU LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AS GOD ALWAYS HAS. AND YOU WILL BE A WITNESS TO THEM AS THE ULTIMATE JEW WAS AND IS. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
