Alive And Well

I read the JT’s article on anti-Semitism (“Anti-Semitism Is Alive And Well,” Nov. 22), and it brought back a speech that [Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and political commentator] Charles Krauthammer gave when he was honored by the Anti-Defamation League. I, of course, do not remember his entire presentation, but the last few lines of his speech remain etched into my meager brain. He said, “When the last survivor of the Holocaust is gone, when the last perpetrator of the Holocaust is gone, anti-Semitism will be alive and well.”

The reasons they give are as old as time itself.
