Alert

We've talked here about demonizing one's enemies.

New development in Germany, what Ms Merkel calls a 'new anti-Semitism'. Jews are being assaulted on the streets of Berlin, recognizable because of their skullcaps. Many of the attackers are said to be Muslim immigrants. At home they had only phantom demons, propagated by their national media. Now they have real ones they can attack. Progress.
A European rap duo just won a prize for lyrics that include a Holocaust reference that couldn't possibly be considered entertainment. The award [Echo] has been shut down by its proprietors, but I'm wondering how this one could have been given in the first place.
Germany, of all the mass killing nations in WWII and its Cold War aftermath - all the participants, that is - has done the most effective job of apologizing and moving on. [What the Bible calls "works befitting repentance."]
If men are capable of fixing the problems they create, we should see it there.
They are not, as our bibleguy poster James pointed out. Jer 10:23.
It will get worse, in every area of human endeavor.
No links; look 'em up yourselves.
