“In a short time, a large number of Jews are going to be slaughtered. Their heads are going to [sic] blown off from the shrapnel. There’s a lot of shrapnel. There’s going to be a bloodbath that’s going to take place in a short time. I think I told you enough. I must go.”
This is one of at least 89 bomb threats at Jewish institutions since Donald Trump was inaugurated.
Just yesterday, alone, at least 21 Jewish community centers and Jewish day schools across the country received bomb threats.
So far, at least 72 Jewish cultural centers in 30 U.S. states and one Canadian province have been affected, according to the Jewish Community Center Association of North America.
Besides bomb threats, hundreds of graves at Jewish cemeteries were desecrated, there was a foiled massacre at a synagogue and swastika graffiti has dramatically increased in public spaces.
American Jews are victims of more reported hate crimes than any other group in the United States, and have been subject to the majority of religiously motivated offenses every year since the FBI started reporting these statistics in 1995.
Such offenses were not unknown in this country before Trump’s rise, but the rate is increasing.
This is consistent with a rise in hate crimes for all ethnic groups across the country. Southern Poverty Law Centre recorded more than 1,000 hate crimes in January alone – the same amount usually reported over a six-month period.
Far from helping the situation, Trump has made it worse.
His statement for Holocaust Remembrance Day deliberately left out any mention of Trump Can’t Fight Anti-Semites. They’re His Base! | gadflyonthewallblog:
