Rabbi Abraham Cooper is one of this nation's most influential rabbis. He's also the Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which does perhaps more than any other organization to combat hate in all of its forms, without discerning between the victims. Indeed, the center is a champion for oppressed groups the world over.
Here we discuss digital terrorism and hate, the preponderance of which runs through all corners of the internet, with a special degree of insidiousness on display in social media platforms.
What causes this hate? Why is it perpetuating now, in this day and in this age? Have we forgot the evil that has shown itself in Europe before and during WWI? In Myanmar, in Cambodia? The Deep South of Jim Crow?
We must never forget. To ensure that doesn't happen, we must forever educate our children.
