European Jews fear for their safety

25

Violent attacks on Jews increased by nearly 40 percent in 2014, with most attacks occurring in Western Europe. The overwhelming majority were committed by Muslims. The response by the international community is to fight “islamophobia.”

Just today, Jewish student’s death in Germany was a “set-up,” expert says. Jeremiah Duggan, 22, died after attending meeting in 2003 where he objected to statements blaming Iraq War on Jews.

Europe learned nothing from the Holocaust. They traded six million Jews for 20 million Muslims. What is frequently referrd to as the “Palestinianization” of Europe is actually the islamization.

Europe is reverting. Europe has returned to its old stomping grounds — comfortable again to indulge their dark, monstrous impulses.

The Holocaust, while it was a German initiative, was carried out by every nation in Europe, save for the Danes. There were Dutch Nazis, Polish Nazis, French Nazis etc— Europe as a continent decided it was a good idea to get rid of the Jews.  The New York Times has reported the discovery of 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps over 13 years of analysis. That number includes “killing centres,” forced labour camps, prisoner-of-war camps, brothels and “care” centres where pregnant women were forced to have abortions, The New York Times reported. 30,000 slave labour camps; 1,150 Jewish ghettos; 980 concentration camps; 1,000 prisoner-of-war camps; 500 brothels; and thousands of other camps for pregnant women and the elderly.

Over 42,000 concentration camps? That wasn’t just the Germans.

Caroline Glick and I discussed Europe at length in a radio show years ago. She said, the  Europeans learned all the wrong lessons from the horrors of World War II. The lesson that Europe had decided to avail itself of in the aftermath of Auschwitz was not that evil is bad and that they behaved like monsters, but rather that everything was caused by nationalism and therefore what they really needed to do was create a European Union that would obviate their need for nationalism, so that we can become this transnational gobbledygook and they’ll all get together and therefore they won’t have another Auschwitz.

The lesson they should have learned was that they were evil and they have to be good. That is the lesson they never learned. They have to be able and willing to make moral distinctions and stand up for the good and fight evil, and that is something the Europeans refuse to do.

Nationalism isn’t bad. American nationalism wasn’t bad, has never been bad. British nationalism hasn’t been bad. French nationalism isn’t bad. Polish nationalism isn’t bad. Czech nationalism wasn’t bad.

The thing that was bad was that Germany decided to embrace madness and evil as its central unifying characteristic under the Nazis. That is what the problem was; it was not nationalism per se. And its still not nationalism.

They took all the wrong lessons from WW2 and are applying them, while ignoring the only lesson that’s really relevant from WW2, which is that you have to choose good and defend good and fight with the intention of defeating evil.

“European Jews fear for safety a year after museum attack,”  AFP, By Lachlan Carmichael and Philippe Siuberski, May 20 , 2015

Brussels (AFP) – A year after a gunman murdered four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Jews across Europe increasingly fear for their safety and warn they are on the frontline of an Islamist war against democracy itself.

Since the attack in the Belgian capital on May 24, 2014, Jews have been slain in jihadist attacks in Paris and Copenhagen. Jews were also murdered in a similar attack in the French city of Toulouse in 2012.

“The threat of jihadist attacks in Europe is not limited to the Jewish community,” European Jewish Congress chief Moshe Kantor told AFP.

Islamic Jew hatred antisemitism

“Islamist extremists see European democracy and freedom as their primary enemy. However, Jews remain on the frontlines,” he added.

Like EU and European government officials, Kantor voiced concern that Islamist militants trained in weapons use and hardened in battle would mount more attacks in Europe following their return from Middle East war zones.

Several thousand European nationals are feared to have joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq.

The four people killed in the Brussels attack were Israeli couple Emanuel and Miriam Riva, French volunteer Dominique Sabrier and museum receptionist Alexandre Sterns.

Six days after the Brussels attack, police in the southern French port city of Marseille arrested 29-year-old Frenchman Mehdi Nemmouche, who had gone to fight with jihadists in Syria.

Found with weapons similar to those seen on museum security cameras, Nemmouche was extradited to Belgium at the end of July.

While waiting for his trial, for which no date has been set, he has denied having carried out the attack.

– ‘Difficult year’ –

“We have had a difficult year on the personal level,” said Philippe Blondin, the director of the small museum in the picturesque Sablon neighborhood of Brussels.

The time when the museum was open without security measures “has unfortunately ended,” Blondin told AFP.

Visitors now walk past two well-armed Belgian soldiers and then through airport-like metal detectors to enter the building.

The museum, which reopened four months after the shooting, will exceptionally be closed on Sunday, May 24, in a sign of mourning.

But the Coordination Committee of Belgium Jewish Organisations will stage a vigil outside its doors at 3 pm (1300 GMT).

“The day of the attack, I was devastated, but I couldn’t part from the feeling that it was going to happen,” said Joel Rubinfeld, the president of the Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism who rushed to the scene within 30 minutes.

Rubinfeld said he has observed a rise in anti-Semitic acts in the last 15 years, but he said Jews are not the only target of the Islamists.

“What they are spreading is hatred of Jews, homosexuals, women, free-masons. In brief, those who are different,” Rubinfeld told AFP.

“They are in the process of testing democracy,” said Rubinfeld, who has received death threats.

He said fear is beginning to drive members of the 40,000 Jewish community to leave Belgium, adding he knows three families who will leave for Israel over the summer.

– ‘Fear and anxiety’ –

Viviane Teitelbaum, a Belgian politician, said she has also been the target of insults and intimidation.

“Many Jews have started to raise questions, especially about the future of their children,” Teitelbaum told AFP.

“It’s sad when families leave because they no longer feel safe in the country that welcomed their parents,” she added.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invited Jews to Israel both following the February Copenhagen shooting in which an unarmed Jewish security guard was killed at a synagogue and following the January Paris attacks in which four Jews were killed at a kosher supermarket in tandem with the Charlie Hebdo attacks.

In Copenhagen, a filmmaker and security guard were killed in attacks on a cultural centre and synagogue.

European Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans has said the EU faces a “huge challenge” to reassure Jews about their future on the continent.

Kantor said fear of anti-Semitic acts was leading to an “exodus” from Europe but he gave no figures.

“It is clear from statistics and the feeling on the ground that the situation for the Jews of Europe hasn’t been as bad since the end of the Holocaust,” Kantor said.

“I have never heard and felt the fear and anxiety in so many parts of Europe as I do today,” he added.
