Dobkowski’s Editorial Published

Michael Dobkowski, professor of religious studies, had an editorial titled “Put an end to 'new anti-Semitism' that blames Jews for world's woes” in the Nov. 25 Democrat and Chronicle. In the article Dobkowski wrote, “Anti-Semitism is a threat whenever two contradictory tendencies appear simultaneously – the belief that Jews have great power and the will to use it and the knowledge that they are vulnerable and can therefore be attacked with relative impunity. Both factors now have many adherents in different parts of the world and have led to repeated attacks on Jews in the Middle East, Latin America and Europe. … Now is the time for all well-meaning people to say no to the resurgence of this, the oldest of social pathologies.”
