Some things need repeating

It’s been said before, but: "Prewar Jews, like today’s East End Muslims, also lived in unforgiving poverty. They too were herded into the cramped streets of East London as the first stop for new immigrants. They too were reviled as outsiders, branded as parasites on the indigenous society. And they too were feared as a potential fifth column, suspected adherents of a violent, supranational ideology. The ‘Jewish menace’ was said to be first anarchism and then Bolshevism. Today’s ‘Muslim peril’ is jihadism."

(Jonathan Freedland, via Lenin)
