Once again, “Death to Jews!” and “Jews to the gas!” are heard in Europe. Once again, Jewish communities around the world are paying for the perceived “sins” of Israel. Again synagogues were fire-bombed. Again Jews were beaten on the street. Again Jews received death threats, both publicly and privately.
