Israel’s policies are feeding the cancer of anti-semitism

The chief rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, is right. His reaction to the Anglican synod’s call for sanctions against Israel is understandable. Hatred of Judaism – now commonly called anti-semitism – is a virus that has infected Christendom for two millennia. It continues to stalk the world despite its most virulent outbreak in Nazi Germany. It should not be left untreated. For too many it remains the unlearned lesson of the Holocaust. It should haunt decent Christians for generations to come.
