We live in a day when scholars and political leaders the world over are re-examining anti-Semitism. Many believe it needs to be redefined, new parameters set, new lines drawn. In some cases, the outcome has been positive for the Jewish people, but for the most part, the message to the world is clear: anti-Semitism, though an unfortunate phenomenon, is no different than any other form of racism. The Holocaust, we are told, was a genocide like all other genocides that happened throughout history. We are even hearing the word holocaust applied to other modern situations such as the holocaust of abortion, and even a so-called “holocaust” faced by the Palestinian people.
