In a new Interview with The Jerusalem Post, DISTURBED frontman David Draiman discussed the rise of anti-Semitism.
“It’s terrifying, worse than I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. I never thought I would see the day when people were literally being attacked once again when antisemitism is becoming mainstream,”
“‘Never again’ has never had so much meaning and yet people are forgetting it”
“People are even questioning the validity of the numbers behind the Holocaust. It’s mind-boggling to me.”
However, Draiman doesn’t place the blame at the door of any one source, including U.S. President Donald Trump.
“It’s not just the Trump era. The country was divided before him, whether people want to admit it or not.
I think that Trump is given too much credit. The hatred exists with or without him. It continues to fester and not enough is being done to bring people together. We’re way too polarized and partisan these days, and I don’t think laying the responsibility at the feet of Trump does it justice.”
