With a population of 64 million, there are less than 1,000 Jews living in Thailand—formerly Siam, as in The King and I, 1956—a predominantly Buddhist country.
And yet Jew-hatred is alive and well.
Which just goes to show that the absence of Jews does not preclude Jew-hatred. Just look at the Arab Muslim world, Judenrein by force, where Jew-hatred is mother’s milk.
My friend, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, guides our attention to a disgraceful parade by the exclusive Sacred Heart Preparatory School in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The parade was led by students who gave the Seig Heil salute and carried Nazi flags. Gun-toting adults proudly accompanied their children. The march started on the school grounds and continued into the streets of the adjoining neighborhood.
