A New Definition of Antisemitism, and Some of the Old-Fashioned Kind

We always knew that the Holocaust of the Jewish people was a unique event. History is full of fighting and killing and suffering, but the Holocaust was something different. This was the first organized genocide against a helpless people, in an attempt to wipe them off the face of the earth. There is nothing that compares to it in all the sad annals of human history.

Survivors, some of whom are still alive, are horrified to hear the destruction of European Jewry compared to other murder and mayhem. Perhaps the last person expected to make the comparison would be the foreign minister of the State of Israel. But that is what happened at the recent 7th Global Forum on Combating Antisemitism.

Foreign minister Lapid, son and grandson of Holocaust survivors. spoke at the forum and said, "Antisemites weren't only in the ghetto in Budapest. The antisemites were the slave traders who threw chained slaves into the ocean. The antisemites were the Hutu tribe members in Rwanda that slaughtered the Tutsis. The antisemites are those Muslims who have killed more than 20 million fellow Muslims in the past decade. The antisemites are the Islamic State and Boko Haram."
