Well-intentioned but futile?

Jewish News reports a new campaign is bringing together Jews and Christians to tackle Antisemitism.

The initiative from the Council of Christians and Jews aims to facilitate events on a national and regional level and comes in response to the recent rise of anti-Jewish hate across Europe, which organisers said was high among the concerns of both communities.

A spokesman said the ‘Still An Issue’ project, “Aims to form a network of engaged communities and individuals who are aware of these issues and can be activated to respond in real-time to events.

It will create a support system across the Christian and Jewish communities to show solidarity at difficult times and facilitate dialogue, keeping relationships open and communities connected”.

While ASW commends this positive action we can not help but feel that it is doomed to failure as a well-intentioned but ultimately futile soft act.
