Antisemitism As a Gateway to Terrorism

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/antisemitism-as-a-gateway-to-terrorism/

Antisemitism is one of the most lethal diseases of hatred that has ever faced humanity; it led to the Holocaust, a horrific and premeditated tragedy of human history, which resulted in the murder of millions of innocent lives and erased thousands of towns and villages from the map.

This recent wave of violence started at the Al-Aqsa mosque, in East Jerusalem, and extended to the rest of East Jerusalem, to the West Bank, and then to all of Israel does not seem to have any positive consequences […]
