Initially, it was a wave of threats to various Jewish organizations around the country. This weekend, it was the desecration of a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia. And this morning, it was a series of 17 bomb threats to Jewish community centers and at least two schools, including Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, where my son is a 10th grader (his older sibling graduated in 2013).
I just received an email from the Jewish Community Relations Council also indicating that a bomb threat was also made against Gesher Jewish Day School in Fairfax.
So, Mr. Tough Talk, what are you going to DO about this situation? Let’s just for once not talk about you and actually face the reality that your election* has unleashed a wave of anti-Semitism on a scale unseen in this country in decades. You have as your chief adviser a man who at a minimum consorts with the most vile, anti-Semitic political actors in this country. You’ve winked and nodded and mugged at them, and they are encouraged by your signals, so much so that . . . well, just look, idiot.
So now what? Ball is in your court. And we are watching.
