Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?  I would just like to see people's ideas on this because I don't understand it at all - I don't know how to make it clicky but here is a post I found: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/27/antisemitism-growing-euro_n_5221747.html

More than likely, it's because of the palestinian propaganda.  Since muslims are all over the place in other countries besides their own, they are more than likely spreading their...severe dislike of Israelites...such as chasing Israeli boys down the streets with a hatchet.  And since most people are afraid of offending muslims, they side with them and against the perceived weaker people.

Is it anti-semitism OR anti-zionism ?

As a Jew, I don't think it's on the rise...I think it's the same level as it has always been.

 So you just hate muslims instead? Really that is your answer?

do you know what the answer is. It is a lack of tolerance amongst the right wing fascists.

Hate groups are on the rise, period. A black man got elected president and half the country done lost their minds.

Israel, infact, has very little to do with anti-semitism in the US. Just the good ol boys dusting off their white bedsheets

There was a thread posted yesterday about how economic downturns make people more racist. I'm sure the racism isn't just about blacks and whites.

I didn't know anti-Semitism was on the rise, but generally, as people get poorer, and there is not much opportunity, they start hating on people. Could be at anyone - except of course the one percenters. They are the "job creators."

I personally haven't seen anti-Semitism on the rise in and around Atlanta.
