Bill de Blasio's recent antisemitic outburst reflects a very commonplace antisemitic canard that has spread during Coronavirus. Call this out. Most people gathering during this crisis are not Jews, and most Jews (including most frum Jews) are not gathering during this crisis. And frum Jews are donating plasma by the thousands to fight Coronavirus.


This antisemitic canard dates back at least to the Black Death and has been behind some of the ugliest pogroms in history. It was spread during the Holocaust as well by Nazis in pamphlets that purported to be about health.
