Charles Krauthammer warned on Friday that the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has produced — particularly in Europe — a “resurgence in anti-Semitism not seen since the ’30s.”

The conservative columnist appeared with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren on Friday to discuss Secretary of State John Kerry’s handling of the brutal war in Gaza, which has claimed the lives of dozens of Israeli soldiers and well over 1,000 Palestinians.

But Krauthammer addressed a different facet of the conflict after Susteren questioned why “the rest of the world” doesn’t realize the ultimate blame for the conflict rests on Hamas.

“The rest of the world’s reaction to what’s happening in Gaza is Orwellian,” Krauthammer declared. “It is shocking. Especially in Europe. It is a resurgence of anti-Semitism not seen since the 1930s.”

“This is a recurrence,” he continued. “It’s all over the world. And don’t tell me it’s anti-Zionism. You listen to the slogans. You see the signs. ‘Hitler was right,’ in Germany, a sign in Germany saying that.”

“This is a veneer that is a front for anti-Semitism,” Krauthammer asserted. “It is back. It’s all over the world. And that’s what we are now beginning to face.”
