Readers Write: Trump behind rise in anti-Semitism

The Island Now

To think that Joan Swirsky believes that Donald Trump, who proclaimed “there are fine people on both sides” after the Charlottesville tragedy, whose anti-Semitic remarks have been chronicled by his niece, is a better candidate than Joe Biden is terrifying.

Ms. Swirsky is correct; we can never forget the Holocaust or dismiss FDR’s lack of intervention to save the Jews of Europe.

But we now face a present danger: the end of democracy and a continuation of the current increase in racism and anti-Semitism if Trump is allowed to have a second term.

To quote Ms.Swirsky, “your choice.”
