There is a real wave of anti-Semitism sweeping the country

This anti-Semitic wave across the lands is real, and is not fictitious.  It is, however, not surprising.  The campaign which unleashed unprecedented level of bigotry, and which featured the bigoted likes of Franklin Graham or Jerry Falwell, Jr. should have alerted Jewish organizations to the danger.  Instead, Zionist organizations were too happy with the pro-Israel stance of Trump, and ignored the ominous signs of bigotry and intolerance which his campaign unleashed.  It is illusory to think that those Christians who harbor and express blatant anti-Muslim sentiments and hatred would not extend their hatred to other non-Christian groups.  I maintain that the Christian evangelical groups in the US--and which have been aligned with Israel for decades--still pose the greatest danger to tolerance in the country, and they would become--at a moment's notice--an instrument of anti-Semitic campaigns.  Is it not high time for people to demand that those bigots like Franklin Graham be ostracized and condemned for their hatred?  Historically, the church was the natural home of anti-Semitism and there is no reason to believe that it won't become again.
