Jihad at Columbia University.

Professor of Jewish and Holocaust studies at Columbia University Elizabeth Midlarsky is about the only one at the college who dares to identify herself openly as Jewish.

Let that sink in.

Remember, this is America. This is New York.

A few days ago she walked into her office to find it vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti. “They got me,” she told The Washington Post. “I’m afraid.”

The paper goes on to tell what happened, how she was shocked, how anti-Semitic incidents have skyrocketed by 60 percent throughout the land, but this was the stopper…this fact, when she says, “I’m a Jew at this college, one of the only ones who acts like a Jew.” The others? Are they hidden Jews?

Look up “Marranos.” Those were the Jews of Spain and Portugal in the Middle Ages who converted to Christianity by force, but kept to their Jewish faith in secret. (1)

Let it sink in, that something like this is happening in America – Jews in hiding, Jews afraid to walk with their heads held high…JEWS TREMBLING.

Arutz Sheva Editor Rochel Sylvetsky recently said something that shook me for its truth, its flash of clarity.

“Jewish history,” she said, “is being made in Israel.”

That puts us squarely in the bullseye of a Lost Generation. As they, in Israel, have been marching their Jewishness triumphantly, we in America have been in retreat.

We are on the verge of being extinct…despite our contributions through science, medicine, law, commerce, literature, military, music, founders of Broadway and Hollywood.

Toynbee’s “fossils of civilization,” certainly not so in Israel; very much so in the United States.

The reasons are many. Jews themselves, for example, gone Torah-less secular, and sleeping with the enemy, namely the Democrats…as if Farrakhan needs more partners.

But something else happened, this in 1964, which changed the demographic complexion in America; quite favorably if your name is Ibrahim.

But not so favorable if your name is Abraham…or even Joe.

That was in 1964 when Ted Kennedy pushed through the Hart-Celler Immigration Act. Quotas were severely tightened for people coming in with Bibles, but loosened considerably for people coming in with the Koran. Hence the influx of Muslims and therefore, over the years, the handover of our schools to BDS, SJP and similar groups who come for jihad but fake as students.

They are not afraid. They have numbers…and they have a cause…to turn every synagogue into a mosque…and to eradicate any semblance of our Judeo/Christian Heritage.

Our colleges are prime for that purpose. That’s where Jews go to become Einsteins and Salks, while the others go to harass, intimidate and disrupt.    

Columbia is not alone. It merely ranks Number One as among the worst campuses for Jewish students.

Quick side note pertinent to the topic: A reader writes: “I did see the movie some time ago, but I have just read the novel “Indecent Proposal,” which everyone else appears to have read and loved. I can see why. No wonder it became a bestseller around the world. I am Jewish myself, loved it, too, but did not see this coming.”

More proof that everyone’s a critic, she continues: “You did not stereotype the Ibrahim antagonist. Impressive writing – throughout. But I was surprised that so much of the content is Jewish and pro-Israel. There is nothing like that in the film. Would you not have been selling even more copies of your novel if you, as the author, would have been more neutral?”

Maybe so. But this novelist won’t be a hidden Jew.

1. The Spaniards called them "Marranos" which is derogatory and means "swine." It became the word used to denote the Crypto-Jews of the Inquistion as non-Spanish speakers did not know its meaning. Recently, the less known words "conversos" or "anousim (forced to sin)" have been used instead.
