The Longest Hatred 1

I want to use a few posts to discuss that longest of hatreds - anti-Semitism.

Firstly, to raise awareness that it is once again a problem- if indeed it ever stopped being an issue. This was made clear in last year's Report of The All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism and these statistics from the Community Security Trust; the situation in other European countries, notably France, is at least as bad if not worse; not to mention the explosion of antisemitism in the Arab world (something with a long history, even before the rise of Zionism: here)

Over the next few days, I'll try to post some stuff on how this relates to evangelicals, compile a list of resources, review a book on the subject which I am cirrently reading, and suggest a way forward.

By the way, if you happen to read this, please would you post to that effect - doesn't have to be anything of substance, just let me know you're reading this - just so I don't feel I'm using up time writing stuff which no-one reads!
