Jews are being told not to wear their skullcaps in public – that is dreadful advice.

Despite all the rhetoric about ‘Never Again’, too many people in positions of authority are ready to ignore and even acquiesce to displays of anti-Semitism. This cowardly behaviour was strikingly illustrated recently by Felix Klein, the German government’s anti-Semitism commissioner.

Last week, Klein told the media that due to a spike in anti-Semitic crimes, he ‘cannot advise Jews to wear the kippah everywhere all the time in Germany’. That’s another way of saying that Germany has become a dangerous no-go area for people who look Jewish.
