Well again, I really don’t know why the (((Community Security Trust))) ‘charity organization’ persists in using that rather coy euphemism, ‘anti-Semitism’. Why not just call a spade a spade? What’s wrong with ‘anti-Judaism’ fer chrissakes? Or, if you prefer something a little softer, ‘anti-Judaisticalism’ … my personal favorite.
Let’s not mince words! Let’s not dodge the issue! Let’s not beat around the bush! Let’s not equivocate! Prevaricate! Or titivate! And above all … let’s NOT pontificate!
Jesus wept. Just plain old ‘anti-Jewish’ is good enough for me. Says it like it is. Cannot be confounded, confused, or confuted. Naked and alone. Anti-Judaism! As utterly outrageous! … as it is perfectly justifiable.
Of course, since the sign was placed outside a Sinner-gog during ‘Purim’ celebrations, one wonders if it wasn’t placed there at the insistence of the local Jewish community as fair warning to interlopers of the non-Jewish variety. Namely … ‘Goy’. After all, Purim ‘celebrations’ can get a tad hairy as we all too frequently hear. Why even True Believers have distinctly, umm, mixed feelings about their national ‘holy day’…
‘Orthodox Israeli scientist and philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz (1903-1994) was once asked whether he would consider living outside Israel. Leibowitz allegedly responded that, no, he would not, one reason being that Israel was the only place he could live where he never had to celebrate Purim. On Purim he would be in Jerusalem (as a walled city, Jerusalem celebrates Purim a day after everyone else, called Shushan Purim) and on the evening after Purim Leibowitz would travel to Tel Aviv. Thus he never had to read the Megillah nor drink to celebrate an act of bloody revenge — that time we killed Haman, his sons and 75,000 of the Jews’ enemies throughout the ancient Persian empire. In typical fashion, Leibowitz cut to the chase. Purim is essentially about the celebration of violence.’ – http://forward.com/opinion/194161/the-dark-side-of-purim/
