“They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone are deliverance and strength.’”
All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame.
But all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the Lord
and will make their boast in him.”
The Late Rabbi Jonathon Sacks stated, “If there is one thing I and my contemporaries did not expect, it was that antisemitism would reappear in Europe within living memory of the Holocaust. The reason we did not expect it was that Europe had undertaken the greatest collective effort in all of history to ensure that the virus of antisemitism would never again infect the body politic. It was a magnificent effort of antiracist legislation, Holocaust education and interfaith dialogue. Yet antisemitism has returned despite everything.“
Since the murder and kidnapping of Israelis on October 7th, initial sympathy has turned to hostile demonstrations of hatred of Israel across the world. Surging antisemitism has brought fear to Jewish families. We cannot be silent.

The battle against this evil ideology is our battle. As Christians it is our duty to do everything we can to help churches recognize antisemitism for what it is and stand against it.
It was heartening to read a joint letter by six former Australian prime ministers declaring, “There is no more tenaciously evil race hatred than antisemitism,” and warning that “the terrorist organisation, Hamas, wants to fuel ancient hatreds throughout the world.”
You can take a STAND too!
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army, for the battle does not belong to you, but to God.” 2 Chronicles 20:15
