Who is behind the many hate crimes against Indiana University’s Jewish students and faculty and the attacks on a Bloomington Orthodox Jewish synagogue and the Jewish Hillel building (a gathering for Jewish students)? Our longtime, wise friends at Advance Indiana believe it’s the growing, highly anti-Semitic Muslim population at Indiana University. I wouldn’t bet against it. Would you? On the other hand, maybe it’s just the local Wiccan sisterhood, right? Urinating on Jewish texts and sacred objects is a frequent practice of Muslims. It’s something they regularly did when they controlled Jerusalem, drilling holes into Jewish graves and urinating into those. It’s the same M.O. here. Our friend, Israeli girl, notes the video. Read the disturbing report:
The Bloomington Herald-Times is reporting Hebrew texts were taken from the shelves at Indiana University’s Wells Library and distributed to eight different bathrooms within the library, where they were urinated on.
This happened Wednesday according to IU’s director of Jewish Studies Program Jeffrey Veidlinger.
That’s the latest in a series of anti-Semitic incidents this week, which includes rocks being thrown through windows at Jewish centers for students – twice at the Chabad House Jewish Student Center and once at the Helene G. Simon Hillel Center.
A rock was also thrown into the staff directory sign of the Jewish Studies program in Goodbody Hall, damage that was reported to local police this morning, Veidlinger said. . . .
Earlier this morning, a second rock was thrown through an upstairs apartment window at the Chabad House at 518 E. Seventh St.
But, hey, even though so many acts of vandalism against Jews in America are committed by Muslims, we would be “Islamophobic” to assume these hate crimes are being perpetrators by the followers of Mohammed. After all, it’s probably just one of your friendly, philo-Semitic, pro-Israel Christians, named Bob Smith, right? A guy named Ahmed or Mohammed or Yasser would never ever do it.
When people say I’m exaggerating when I say stuff like this has echoes of Kristallnacht, my response is that you are an idiot if you bury your head in the sand and ignore the growing anti-Semitic attacks on Jews in America . . . which is concomitant with the growing Muslim population in America.
DO. THE. MATH.
That Was Then . . .
This Is Now . . .
