It cannot be coincidence that anti-Semitism is a serious issue on both sides of the Atlantic at this time. In the US, the Democratic Party is on the defensive about the stands taken by its two Muslim Congresswomen Ilhan Omar ( D-Minn) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich). The former is a Somali refugee and the latter is of Palestinian origin. Omar has made overtly anti-Semitic statements, accusing Jewish members of Congress of having dual loyalty and saying that she refuses to take an oath of allegiance to Israel, like her colleagues. As a result of many complaints, including by Jewish Democrats, Nancy Pelosi was preparing a resolution refuting her anti-Semitic statements. But, an internal fight ensued in which the Congressional Black Caucus supported Omar, and so the resolution was watered down to be against all racism, including anti-Black, Islamophobia as well as anti-Semitism.
But, we should acknowledge that Omar cannot help herself, all Muslims are brought up to be anti-Jewish, as Christians once were. And now this form of virulent anti-Israelism has infected their culture. What is perhaps worse is that the Black members of Congress support her, as do her leftist colleagues, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders, who is incredibly running for President again. So anti-Semitism is now a major issue in the US and has infected the major Democratic party thru the infiltration of Muslims and hard leftists.
In the UK the situation is similar, but in a way worse, because the leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has shown himself to be a committed anti-Israel activist, sympathizer with the extreme wings of Palestinian terrorism, as well as being openly anti-Semitic. And this has resulted in a strong anti-Semitic wave in the Party, resulting in intimidation of those who oppose this wave, and as a result 10 members of the Parliamentary Labour Party (MPs), some of them Jewish, have left the Party. Once again anti-Semitism is a major live issue in British politics, also at a time of political upheaval due to the Brexit situation.
Historically, whenever there has been a time of political upheaval and uncertainty, as found in both the UK and Britain now, there is an upsurge of anti-Semitism. Popular movements in times of stress look for scapegoats and the Jews are the favorite ones. Add to this the extreme anti-Jewish and anti-Israel views of the Muslims now infiltrating Western politics and left-wing parties and you have a cause for deep concern
