Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

You discusses here, appropriately, the "Great Replacement" Theory, or Conspiracy (I'm deliberately leaving it open).

But I do know if you discussed it anywhere from the American point of view. So I'm linking here a "National Public Radio" (article) which sees this as a racist conspiracy theory. It seems to me (I'm guessing by the name of the author) that this is a Left, or Woke, cultural classification. And what is further of interest to me is the fact that this author uses references from the (Jewish) ADL (Anti-Defamation League).

The good thing (for us Jews) in this new Antisemitic World is the fact that we have Israel to escape to. But Jews are possible victims here either because they are on the Left, or Right (they do fit the Rainbow, actually). Jews, on the Left recognize Racism of Blacks (as in Black Lives Matter). So the American KKK (and Nazis) announce that the "Jews Will Not Replace Us." Obvious, the Jews are seen as the weak point in the Woke Culture; and these Left Wing Jews must have sympathy for the unfortunate Illegals, or Immigrants/Migrants. But if Jews are on the Right, that Ye (aka Kenya West) views the Jews of the USA as in control of Hollywood, etc.

I know that there is currently, for the past decade or more, a significant rise in Antisemitism. But I am unaware of any efforts to explain the phenomena, other than saying that Antisemitism happens. So I'll try to spell it out here, as consisting of three historical stages in modern times. (1) Until William Marr came along, the Jew in Christian Europe was the one who committed Decide (killed Jesus Christ, and refused to accept him. (2) With the German Marr, in 1881, the Jew was seen as the adversary of every national movement; he was the outsider allegedly responsible for corrupting the Christian German identity in Germany, for example. (3) Now the Jew is seen, in the USA as responsible for the "Great Replacement" of the "White Man." But by the Woke Culture of Ye he is seen on the Right holding Blacks back. Similar events are taking place in Europe, such as in France, where the Liberal Jews is seen as the "friend" of the Muslim and African cohort immigration onslaught; but if the Jew is on the Right, he is seen as the enemy of Muslim and African, wave of immigrants who is the "real enemy." So a Jew, in this environment cannot win because he is the enemy of both sides, but which is determined by being on the Left or Right. Well, as I pointed out, during Hitler's time, the Jew did not have Israel to escape to. The important thing to note is that the Jew makes a convenient and "natural" scapegoat. I do not believe that using the Holocaust as an educational tool is the best way to go to alleviate Antisemitism. I believe it is time to emphasize the Excellence and Exceptionalism of the Jew, as seen in Israel; but also, by pointing out the positive role the Jew played in both the United States and Europe in bringing about Modernity when he exited the Ghetto and subsequently escaped first the Russian Empire Pogroms and later Hitlers Holocaust. But I do not wish to emphasize the Status of the Victim; I which to emphasize the extraordinary success - as in the case of Albert Einstein and "Jewish Physics" (as the Nazis called it).
