Where does this leave Democratic Jews?
By Abraham H. Miller
Hitler did not wake up one morning and decide to issue an order to murder the Jews of Germany. German Jews were well integrated and assimilated in Germany despite anti-Semitism. Neither the Nazis nor their ideology gained a majority among the German electorate prior to the Nazis seizure of power.

Anti-Semitism is a politics of misdirected blame. Today its most frequent target is the state of Israel.
