We Must "Take Sides Today" as the Hatred of Anti-Semitism Grows
As today's world news banners around the globe show the desecration of the childhood home in Romania of the late Holocaust survivor and renowned Jewish Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, we are abruptly reminded once again that the vile grasp of anti-Semitism crosses the ages, oceans, cultures and generations. Here was a man who after spending time in a Nazi concentration camp, spent the rest of his life preaching against hate and becoming a powerful and eloquent witness of the six million lives lost to hatred. His small home, being preserved to become a historical monument and museum, was splashed with obscene anti-Semitic graffiti that boggles the imagination of those with a conscience.
Elie Wiesel’s own words said it best: “We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
We at PJTN must remain vigilant as anti-Semitism continues to seep hatred at an ever-growing rate both across the globe and here in America. As Elie Wiesel said so rightly…"we must take sides.”
