“Europe is very good at building memorials for dead Jews. It is still learning how to protect the living ones. Vigils honor the dead, but they don't do much for the living. Solidarity does.”
Bari Weiss, How to Fight Anti-Semitism

“When anti-Zionism becomes a normative political position, active anti-Semitism becomes the norm. Because if you believe that Zionism is racism, it follows that Zionists are racists. And everyone knows what should happen to racists.”
Bari Weiss, How to Fight Anti-Semitism

“Under Lenin’s one-party state rule, this took the form of the Yevsektsiya, the Jewish section of the Bolshevik Party, run by—who else?—Jews. It was a perfect solution. The state could ban Judaism and criminalize Zionism, and Lenin could point to the fact of the Jewish section to prove that the Communists were actually philo-Semitic. Jews could join—and persecute other Jews—to prove that they were committed members of the party.”
