FATAH: Pittsburgh synagogue slaughter not easily explained

“The Jew is a symbol of eternity” – Tolstoy

The slaughter of Jews in Pittsburgh by an alleged anti-Semite cannot be easily explained. After centuries of studying the phenomenon of Jew hatred, few have come up with an answer as to why this tiny segment of our world community faces so much revulsion.

Every time there is an incident of violence against Jews, it adds one more ugly scar on the face of our common legacy.

The attack that killed 11 on Saturday in Pittsburgh’s vibrant Jewish community reminded me of the attack on a Jewish community centre in Mumbai, India, 10 years ago. Same target, different assassins.

How long will Jews be killed simply because they are too few? Just under 15 million in a world populated by 7 billion other souls.

Is it because Jews have contributed far more to humanity than they’ve taken back?........
