New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism.

Check out the details from The Washington Examiner:

In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform.

Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police.

As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left.

Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to exist” to be anti-Semitic, while 80 percent said that the idea that America only supports Israel because of Jewish money to also be anti-Semitic.

The survey was conducted over the telephone in September and October over a several week period. There were 1,283 participants who were adults who were of Jewish religion and background.

The release of the data gathered from the study comes four days before the one year anniversary of the horrific Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. A total of 11 people died and other were injured during the incident.

Bill Barr Goes On Record, Says Dems ‘Engaged In A War’ to Systemically Sabotage Trump Admin

Is he wrong? Or is he 100% correct?

If you think Attorney General Bill Barr is wrong or off-base or is just talking to hear his own voice, you’re not paying attention. Thankfully, you’re a conservative and you’re in the know. At a recent event, Barr proclaimed what all Republicans have been thinking from day one. The left is determined to bring down President Trump and every member of his administration by any means necessary. Barr, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and many others close to POTUS, aren’t afraid to say what they are thinking. Barr didn’t hold back. Here’s the scoop, via Daily Wire: Attorney General William Barr went off on the so called “resistance” during a Friday speech at the Federalist Society’s 2019 National Lawyers Convention in Washington, D.C., warning that the political Left is “engaged in a war” to “cripple” and “sabotage” the Trump administration from being able to function. Barr noted, “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘The Resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration. Now, ‘resistance’ is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic. What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the ‘loyal opposition,’ as opposing parties have done in the past, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.” WATCH: AG Bill Barr on the Democrats: “they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool & maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of [the Trump admin]… they essentially see themselves as…

Jay-Z reportedly helped Colin Kaepernick secure a workout for NFL teams as a way to make amends with his liberal fanbase after working on a project with Commissioner Roger Goodell. They thought he sold out. 24 of the NFL’s 32 teams were set to show up to the private workout in Atlanta. There wasn’t supposed to be any media in attendance. At the last minute, seemingly out of the blue, Colin and his camp decided to change the location so there would be media. You know, for transparency sake. Now, Colin is getting called out for turning the event in a sideshow. Here’s what’s up, via Washington Post: Representatives for quarterback Colin Kaepernick moved and rescheduled his workout for NFL teams Saturday after disagreements persisted with the league over the details of his audition. The session, as planned by the NFL, was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Atlanta Falcons’ training complex in Flowery Branch, Ga. After continued haggling with the league over the conditions for the workout, Kaepernick’s representatives announced it would be moved to 4 p.m. at another Atlanta-area venue. They wanted the session open to the media, which the NFL refused, and objected to the version of a liability waiver that the league wanted Kaepernick to sign, Kaepernick’s representatives said.
