Bush Wages Unsung Battle Against Global Anti-Semitism


● Criticism of both the United States and globalization that spills over to Israel and to Jews in general, who are identified with both.

Nonetheless, there are hopeful signs. For the most part, anti-Semitism is no longer state-sponsored, except in the Middle East. Men and women of goodwill, as well as governments and business groups, are organizing opposition to this recurring scourge. The U.S. government has taken a strong stand against global anti-Semitism and is encouraging other nations to do likewise. And the Europeans, at least, are taking steps to rid themselves of this ancient affliction, a centuries-old blight on their otherwise rich civilizations.
