The foreign ministers of Germany, France and Italy have spoken out against a disturbing wave of violent anti-Semitic attacks across Europe in the wake of the Gaza crisis.
In Berlin, police had to step in to protect an Israeli tourist couple at the weekend after protestors turned on them when they spotted the man’s yarmulke. Demonstrators reportedly charged towards the couple shouting “Jew! We’ll get you!”
In Paris, hundreds of protestors have attacked synagogues, smashed the windows of Jewish shops and cafes, and set several alight, including a kosher grocery store which reportedly burned to the ground.
In the Netherlands, the home of the chief rabbi has been attacked with stones twice in one week.
There have been reports of protestors in Germany chanting “Jews to the gas chambers”, and police in Berlin have banned protestors from using another popular slogan: “Jew, Jew, cowardly pig, come out and fight alone”.
This won’t end well.
Oh, good grief. Argentina never should have let Germany win that soccer game. They’ve gone mad with power, again.

One of my favorite films! Brent is killing it with this #randomframe series, and it’s making me want to see everyone’s old random film shots (okay, and post my own, probably).
A mushroom falls from the cutting board in my lap onto the porch. The dog hears it, looks over in alarm. (He is easily alarmed.)
I pick up the mushroom, telling the dog, “It’s okay. I rescued it!”
I pause, thinking.
"Just like I rescued you."
White men make up approximately 36% of the population, but commit 75% of mass shootings. What would be called terrorism by any other skin tone is suddenly some mysterious unnamed disease. We as a society are perfectly happy to further stigmatize mentally ill people, who are far more likely to be victims of violence than commit violence, in the service of protecting white supremacy and male entitlement.– (via shitrichcollegekidssay)
I made some comics about Ida B. Wells, and then I talk about her for a while, because I am #1 teen fan and I wish I had a poster of her on my wall with hearts all over it.
