enriched by insights, con-
tributions and achievements
of each distinctive group. Dif-
ference is no crime, but rather
the opportunity for growth of
the human spirit.
The third illusion is that
Haman was finally and total-
ly defeated, and the forces of
evil were overcome.
Throughout the centuries of
the Diaspora, the Jew lived
with anti-Semitism as the
condition of his existence, as
an ineradicable element of his
environment. Hence, the
Jewish folk proverb "So many
Hamans, only one Purim."
Anti-Semitism is one of the
most persistent forms of
social illness that Western
civilization has known. We
who live in this great
democracy have not ex-
perienced the ugliness and
savagery that has
characterized the outbreak of
violent anti-Semitism in prac-
tically all the countries of
Europe.
Anti-Semitism is alive at
the United Nations which has
declared Israel a pariah state.
Anti-Semitism is imbedded in
some of the social structures
of our culture and in the at-
titudes of many individuals.
It would be a great illusion to
believe that this sickness has
disappeared. It has become
muted, suppressed, subter-
rean as it acquires new forms
that are more subtle, and
therefore not subject to direct

refutation. I refer to Arab
anti-Semitism that is over
and beyond political conflict;
the anti-Semitism in some
segments of minority groups,
in Third-World spokesmen,
and even the American upper
class.
We have concern also about
the number of authors who
claim that the Holocaust did
not happen, or that the
tragedy that befell the Jews
in Nazi Europe was no dif-
ferent than the suffering of
the occupied countries. By
spreading these lies, the
forces of hate seek to confuse
and bewilder the ignorant
and deny the moral claim of
the State of Israel on the con-
science of the world.

Purim instructs us to
remember Haman and to
recognize the persistence of
his spirit in the anti-
Semitism of our time which
appears in guises not as
visibly offensive as the crude
attack of earlier periods. We
must utilize every effort to
overcome a widespread ig-
norance about the Holocaust,
Israel and the Jewish
heritage, an ignorance which
can be exploited and
manipulated by anti-Semitic
propaganda. By drowning out
the name of Haman while we
listen to the Purim story, we
commit ourselves to the
elimination of his evil design
from our midst.
