THE ONLY EXISTENTIAL THREAT IS INTERNAL:

US Jews have it easy, don't send kids to war, top diplomat Hotovely says (JTA, 11/23/17)

Israel's deputy foreign minister Tzipi] Hotovely decried her disinvitation earlier this month from the Princeton University Hillel because of her past comments on Israeli Arabs.  [...]

"The other issue is not understanding the complexity of the region," she said. "People that never send their children to fight for their country, most of the Jews don't have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives. They don't feel how it feels to be attacked by rockets, and I think part of it is to actually experience what Israel is dealing with on a daily basis."

The most dangerous anti-Semitism in the world today is a function of Israeli politics.
