The Eternal Life of Blood Libels Against the Jews
It's getting worse, far worse. Now, it is almost everywhere, in most publications, in so many languages, in school and university curricula, at conferences, in demonstrations, in countless petitions, in the mouths of celebrities, and at the United Nations. I'm talking about Jew hatred, anti-Zionism, and Very Big Lies. This cannot end well; at least, it never has.
I am hardly a scholar in this area, but it seems to me that the myth of this alleged massacre may have functioned just as the 20th century Al-Dura myth has in our current century. The entire world wanted to believe that Israelis would purposely, wantonly, and viciously kill an Arab child, sheltering in his father's arms. It did not happen.
yet, blood libels against the Jews never quit, they seem to live on forever.
