Gove stated; “Antisemitism - who one would have thought would have vanished from the earth forever after the unique crime of the Holocaust, is once more on the rise.”
In this brief address, Gove traces antisemitism through history; In medieval times it was religious, “manifested in “ghettoization” and forced conversions”. From this, antisemitism morphed into “a perverted guise of scientific racism” which led to the “eliminist politics in Austria and Germany”, eventually leading to “the greatest crime mankind has ever witnessed”.
But Gove was clear to point out that antisemitism has not stopped there. Pointing to history, Gove showed how that the antisemitism of the past was pretty much limited to European arena. Today however, we are witnessing a new, revived anti-Semitic rally as it masquerades under the international “Boycott, Divest and Sanctions” movement. It is an antisemitism that is far more potent as it gains momentum at the UN and on the international scene.
The danger of the antisemitic BDS movement Gove stresses is that it not only slams the collective identity of the Jewish people, but the very existence of the State of Israel. What does this matter to us? Much Gove concludes, as he quotes the Chief Rabbi of the UK; “What starts with the Jews…never ends with the Jews.”
How true this is, as the German Christian Pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and countless other Christians and supporters of God’s people the Jews found out - as they were murdered for interfering in the evils of the 3rd Reich.
