As England’s Jeremy Corbyn stumbles over his anti-Semitic apology (or should that be, apology for anti-Semitism? Maybe both?), earlier this year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel lamented the continued rise of anti-Semitism in her own country.
Back in April, Merkel claimed to Israel’s Channel 10 that she was, “Burdened,” by Germany’s failure to eradicate the spirit of anti-Semitism.
“I am embarrassed due to the fact that Jewish institutions require security details in 2018.”
Yeah, talk about awkward.
Merkel also added, “It depresses me that we have not been able to get a handle on anti-Semitism for once and for all. We have a new phenomenon of refugees or people of Arab origin who bring another form of anti-Semitism into the country, but sadly we also had anti-Semitism beforehand.”
Another form of anti-Semitism? Hmm… Out of curiosity, how many forms are there?
