LETTER: You Can Not …

 

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you do not publicize the assault of a Jew on the way to temple in New York.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you support a candidate who calls for the expulsion of Jews from the United States.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you support groups such as the American Nazi Party, KKK or others that call for the murder of Jews.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you ignore swastikas painted on residence halls at colleges.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism unless you condemn the vandals who through rocks not once but twice thru the glass panels of Boston’s Holocaust Memorial.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you are silent when gravestones are toppled in a Jewish cemetery.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you support a girl being forced to resign from a position on her university’s Student Council because she is Jewish.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism if you do not condemn a professor’s refusal to write a letter of recommendation for a student to intern in Israel because he does not support the ‘Jewish State’.

You can not say you condemn antisemitism when you see anti-Semitic incidents and remain silent because you don’t want to make waves.

You must be proactive to stop incidents before they happen and not reactive apologizing after they happen.

Silence is not golden, you must make waves, speak out and be heard.
