Krauthammer: World's Anti-Semitic Reaction to Gaza 'Orwellian'

On Friday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer discussed his latest Washington Post column, which criticized the role Secretary of State John Kerry has played in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Krauthammer pointed out the latest breach of a cease-fire by Hamas has given Kerry the opportunity to walk back some of his efforts that gave Hamas the benefit of the doubt. But the other problem for Israel has been the inability to win over public opinion around the world.

“The rest of the world’s reaction to what’s happening in Gaza is Orwellian,” Krauthammer said. “It is shocking, especially in Europe. It is a resurgence of anti-Semitism not seen since the `30s, this is a recurrence, it’s all over the world, and don’t tell me its anti-Zionism. You listen to the slogan, you see the sign, Hitler was right in Germany, a sign in Germany saying that this is a veneer that is a front for anti-Semitism and it is back. It’s all over the world. And that’s what we’re now beginning to face.
