Kristallnacht will have its 67th annivarsary on November 9-10 this year. It is not something to celebrate. It is something to fear. Religious fascism is dangerous - may more dangerous than ordinary run-of-the-mill fascism.

will the synagogues have to be watchful...?
will the courts be put under political watch...?

so many questions...

just asking...
