The title of my blog post today is a line from a news article which you can read in full at https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/25/opinions/anti-semitism-in-germany-hockenos-opinion/index.html

The following quote is from the news article cited above:

Begin quote

The facts jar and perplex ordinary Germans: Seventy years after the Holocaust, anti-Semitism is still alive in Germany — and apparently getting worse.

So concerned are Germany’s lawmakers, they’ve just established a high-level commissioner post to fight discrimination against the Jewish community.

Headline: Leading member of German far-right party resigns after converting to Islam

Even after decades of rigorous political education and intense, self-critical soul searching, 9% to 10% of Germans express classic anti-Semitic feelings, according to a 2017 report commissioned by the Bundestag. Many more, up to 50%, harbor more mild anti-Semitic prejudices.

End quote

So half of all Germans hate Jews? How could this be? As everyone knows, Jews never lie, steal or cheat! Jews are the best people in the world. That’s why they have been hated since the beginning of time, and will continue to be hated until the end of time.

There is an old saying: “After you shake hands with a Jew, count your fingers.” The implication is that Jews will steal anything, including your fingers.
