People don’t seem to understand how insidious and pervasive anti-semitism is—or worse, they understand, and don’t care.

The standard seems to be pointing out the suffering of the Palestinian people, with a subtle, or not so subtle implication that anti-semitism is justified.

The entire situation is terrifying. Anti-semitism is of the greatest horrors of the human condition. It’s so pervasive that people easily fall into it, repeating tropes and spreading misinformation with unconcern.
