"Never Again"? Again in Scotland!

We use the phrase "Never Again" to symbolize the fact that what happened in Germany and around Europe in the 1930's and 1940's would never occur again!

I wrote this sentence back in August leading into a story of a vicious anti-Semitic attack that took place on the campus of Michigan State University. A group asked a man if he was Jewish, flashed the Nazi salute, screamed Heil Hitler and then beat the man within an inch of his life while a group of about 20 people looked on.

Flash forward to present day Edinburgh, Scotland

University students quit after ‘toxic’ antisemitism in Edinburgh 
"...Members of Scottish Jewish Student Chaplaincy and the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities told the university bosses that Jewish students had felt it necessary to “hide their Jewish identity due to the hostile atmosphere at Edinburgh” and were now seeking “secure and safe” space on campus.

SCoJeC also reported a rise in the number of enquiries from parents and potential students in the US and Europe about the safety of Jewish students at Scottish universities. In the past three years, the number of queries about campus antisemitism had risen five-fold, SCoJeC said..." (Source)

Never again? Unfortunately that seems not to be the case!
