Conspiracy Theories Can’t Account for Anti-Semitic Surge

Vandalism against Jewish cemeteries and a hundred bomb threats against Jewish community centers look so puzzling that some observers spin conspiracy theories. This logic argues that cunning activists staged the attacks to smear the president. After all, a church burning during the campaign was initially blamed on Trump backers, but later tied to a member of that black congregation. But in that episode, graffiti that said “Vote Trump” accompanied the arson, while the new anti-Semitic attacks never mention conservative causes or candidates.

If the perpetrators wanted to smear someone falsely, wouldn’t they have invoked his name? If they wanted to blame Islam, they would have used Jihadist slogans.

So far, we know nothing about motivations of the perpetrators, which leads to the conclusion that these stunts are the work of sick minds with no coherent purpose or ideology. Whatever their purposes, they should be apprehended and punished for their threats and destruction to the full extent of the law.
