An advertising campaign featured on a United States Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an "Internment/Resettlement" specialist is raising alarms across the country and around the world, generating concerns that there is some truth in theories about domestic detention camps, a roundup of dissidents and a crackdown on "threatening" conservatives, as well as Jews. WorldNetDaily reported last week that the campaign is only weeks behind a report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warning about "right-wing extremists" who could pose a danger to the country.
Shifra Hoffman of the Aliyah (immigration to Israel) advocacy group shuva (www.shuva.net) told IsraelNationalNews on Friday that the ads don't bode well for Jews, especially in the light of stories in recent months and years about the building of 600 detention centers around the United States.
While there is no specificly ethnic language that could be directed at Jews, Hoffman pointed out that there was also no such language leading up to the US internment of Japanese during World War II. She said the story about the camps and staffing for them is another reason for American Jews to accelerate their plans for aliyah. source
