Anti-Semitism is the result of chareidi behavior.

The anti-Semitism all around us is a wake-up call from Hashem. He caused the entire world to point an accusing finger at the Jewish People. Anti-Semites hate us not for what we do, but for who we are. They can’t tolerate the Jewish character that makes us Jews.

It stands to reason, then, that Hashem wants more from us than fine-tuning our halachic performance. We have many mitzvos that need improvement, and character traits to refine. But this surge of anti-Semitism calls for an avodah that’s more fundamental than our actions or even our middos. The Jewish character is under attack; and Hashem is showing us we need to mend the cracks in our Jewish character.

  1. A surprising amount of insight. Let's see if they figure out which mitzvos and middos they have to improve on!
    Hint: It'll be: we're not keeping kosher strictly enough, we need more chumros for Shabbos and we have to speak only Yiddish from now on.
