2/3 of Americans Now Believe Jews Face Discrimination in US

According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, the percentage of Americans who believe Jews in the US face discrimination shot up by 20 points between 2016 and 2019. The survey was conducted between March 20th and 25th, and polled 1,503 American adults. Five months earlier, a lone gunman had opened fire on worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 and wounding 6. The incident was the deadliest attack targeting Jews in US history. Sixty-four percent of American adults in March 2019 said they believe that Jews face discrimination in the US, compared to just 44% who believed so in 2016. The portion of Americans who believe Jews face significant discrimination also went up sharply, rising from 13% of Americans in 2016 to 24% in 2019 – a nearly 85% increase.

Fifty-five percent of Republicans believe Jews face discrimination in the US, including 20% who say US Jews face “a lot” of discrimination. By comparison, 28% of Democrats say Jews face “a lot” of discrimination in the US, with a total of 70% who believe Jews face some degree of discrimination. By contrast, only 32% of Democrats say Evangelicals face discrimination, compared to 70% of Republicans. However, the number of respondents who believe Jews face discrimination went up significantly between 2016 and 2019 among both Republicans and Democrats. In 2016, just 9% of Republicans and 15% of Democrats said Jews were discriminated against, rising to 20% of Republicans and 28% of Democrats in 2019.

One of the outstanding reasons for the upsurge of anti-semitism (which is always lurking deep under) is the outright 'leftist' (another word for today's anti-semitism) media worldwide. In reality, everything is m'Shamayim, where all the evil is being unleashed at this time of Keitz Haymim, and the media is the representation of the world's view. Such as the WSJ (Wall St. Journal) which has become quite leftist. The media has the power like nothing else to promote agendas throughout the world. They are really the engine that makes it work. Believe this is the process of birur before the coming of Moshiach tzdkeinu.
