Question Is there any anti Semitism left in US?

Is there any anti Semitism left in US?

Have you noticed any RECENT indications of anti-Semitism in US? I think there are anti-Jewish feelings in Europe. But not in US presently.

Whether on internet chat-rooms or some UK Prince wearing swastika, I have seen anti-Semitism only in Europe and never currently in US.

If anti Semitism is still there in US, let me know.

Thanks.

Edit/Add: Just to make it clear . . . I thought anti-semitism was there only earlier in US, not now.

You mean anti-Jewish campaigns?

If yes, then no. I don't think that exists in US anymore. Unless it is totally under covers which common people like me are not aware of.

It does exist.... There is a movie called "Passion Of Christ"... a channel called Fox News.. A lady called Ann Coulter... these are prime examples of anti-semitism. US is full of anti semites and bigoted christians. Contrary to popular belief I find US christians more bigoted than a european one.

Add: there are reverends like Falwell(now late) and Franken etc.

I never understood this... In India they say that media is against hinduism and sold to christians... in pakistan they say media is 'aawara' rather than 'aazad' and owned by indians and jews and in US they(mostly fox) claim that media is anti christian.

The truth is people are getting fed up with religion and religious leaders trying to rule their life. In any country ethnic majority can afford this(while minorities try to get more ghettofied)... Even In Israel the archeological department came up with conclusion that there is no evidence of Moses and all the mythical stories which did not go well with Rabbis and hardcore jews.

That's what I thought. But I am caught off guard that many of you say USA actively is anti-Semitic. Can you site a few references? I must be living in a totally different world.

Yes, you live in Canada.


Bigotry is intrinsic to human nature. It is part of our survival mechanism. So no matter what you see or hear anti *******-ism exists everywhere. Replace religion, caste, sex, color, race, language .. whatever for the ******

Threat to 'kill all Jews' gets Ohio man pulled from plane

Quote:
An Ohio man who became loud and disruptive aboard a plane scheduled to fly from Miami to Detroit -- at one point shouting "kill all the Jews" -- was removed from the airplane and taken into custody by Miami-Dade police Wednesday.

The man arrested was identified as Mansor Mohammad Asad, 43. Police say he caused a "disturbance," forcing the pilot to decide to return to the jet-bridge.

When Asad was taken off the plane to be interviewed by police Wednesday, he threatened officers, made racial comments and charged at an officer, authorities said.

The action taken by officials on the Delta Airlines flight comes at a time of heightened security at U.S. airports following the alleged attempt by a Nigerian to blow up an airplane on Christmas Day.

FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said the bureau was notified and concluded it was a local police matter.

The crew aboard the flight scheduled to leave at 5:45 p.m. Wednesday from Miami International Airport decided to return the plane to its gate, where police took four passengers into custody, according to Homeland Security spokeswoman Sari Koshetz.

She said four passengers were taken off a plane from Miami to Detroit after making "inappropriate remarks and acting disruptively."

The flight later was cleared for departure.

Separately, a video released Thursday by the office of Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., showed a man taking advantage of a guard's absence to sneak past a Newark Liberty International Airport security checkpoint Sunday and walk arm-in-arm with a woman into a secure area.

The guard's absence caused a terminal shutdown that delayed flights worldwide.

In the video, the man stations himself near an exit lane, where departing passengers pass a security guard to leave the terminal. The security officer appears to walk over and tell the man to step outside a rope barrier.

A minute or so later, after the guard leaves his podium for several seconds, the woman approaches the exit from inside the terminal and motions to the man, who ducks under the rope to join her. The officer has been placed on administrative leave while the breach is investigated.

Leave aside movies becoz film-makers may not be anti-Semitic in real life.

Have you noticed any

* hate comments of the kind Hitler's Main Kampf made or like, "The only way a Jew can be useful is if he is dead." or "Jews are @!#*/:$"

* Discrimination in real life against Jews

* Doing something really harmful to Jews

* Forcibly drawing swastika on a Jew person's body

Did you get me?
