Dear ATC and Eleanor Beardsley,
I thought your piece about so-called ‘anti-Semitism’ in Europe and France was completely misguided. The anger and unrest you describe may be the result of economic distress, but it has nothing to do with Judaism or anti-Semitism. If it were the Amish who were imprisoning and oppressing the Palestinians, Europeans and Americans would be just as angry at them as they are at the Israelis. The anger is at the injustice - do you understand that? Should injustice be excused because the oppressors are Jewish? Are you suggesting that it’s impossible for Israel to mistreat other people, and the only possible explanation is that people hate Jewish people, for no reason? You really need to apologize for this gross mischaracterization of what is happening in Europe. You are slandering many nations and people with your analysis. You are completely wrong.
