The need for the Jewish state of Israel has not been clearer since the end of the Holocaust. Jewish populations are being terrorized in countries across Europe, Africa, and Asia. In Europe, the attacks on Jewish communities is for the most part a direct result of mass Muslim immigration. Attacks on Jews are also occurring in Muslim majority countries, which have become increasingly unsafe for its Jewish populations. Many of the Muslims who live within these countries are terribly hostile towards Jewish people, a hatred that is exacerbated by their intense hatred for Israel.
In Europe, political leaders have been incapable of adequately protecting their Jewish populations. The various European governments seem to be unwilling to confront their Muslim populations about Islamic anti-Semitism, due to the immense voting power that their Muslim citizens possess. Therefore, the largest Jewish populations across Europe will shrink or even disappear.
France is home to the largest Jewish population in Europe, at 500,000 strong. However, the influx of Muslim immigrants from North Africa has made life next to impossible for French Jews. As of 2017, France’s Muslim population represents 10 percent of the French population. Several hundred anti-Semitic attacks occur every year. French Jews such as Ilan Halimi have been murdered by Muslim gangs, and attendance at synagogues has plummeted, due to the fear of being harassed, assaulted or even killed.
So what has the government of France done to reduce their country’s high levels of Islamic anti-Semitism? Well, the French government has placed military and police protection outside Jewish schools, Jewish community centres, and synagogues. The famous Jewish quarter in Paris is constantly being roamed by military personnel and police. However, the French government continues to ignore much of its Muslim population’s hatred of Jews. In fact, France’s left-leaning government continues to import migrants from North Africa and the Middle East, in their immoral attempt to obtain new voters.
This has resulted in high levels of French immigration to Israel over the last 15 years. In 2013, 5000 French citizens immigrated to Israel. In 2014, it was 7400 French citizens, and in 2015, it was 7900 citizens. Between 2016 and 2017, a total of 9500 French Jewish citizens packed their bags to Israel. Due to France’s growing Muslim population and the French government’s policies of appeasement, it is inevitable that the vast majority of the French Jewish population will abandon France within the next two decades.
The UK is home to 275,000 Jews, and was at one time a relatively safe country for Jews. However, in the last 25 years, the UK has provided asylum to hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Muslim immigrants from Pakistan, Somalia, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. The Muslim population in the UK is now at 4.5 percent, and in London the Muslim population is at 13 percent. This has resulted in a significant spike in anti-Semitic incidents in Britain. They reached a whopping 1078 in 2016, up 49 percent from 2014. A recent study by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) and the Community Security Trust (CST) found that anti-Semitic views among Muslims were more than double that of the general population in the UK. In addition, according to the study, 87 percent of Muslims polled held deep anti-Israel attitudes.
The United Kingdom’s large Muslim population has also altered the country’s political landscape. The UK’s Labour Party has moved further to the left to accommodate its growing number of Muslim voters. This has had a profound impact on the Labour Party’s relationship with UK Jews. Many of the party’s Muslim members have deep-seated anti-Semitic views. For example, Blackburn’s former mayor Salim Mulla claimed that “Israel was behind ISIS,” and stated that “Zionist Jews are a disgrace to humanity.” Labour MP Naz Shah suggested that “Israel should be relocated to the United States.” Shah’s statements would later be defended by Muslim Labour MP Rupa Huq. The Labour Party’s leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has faced numerous accusations of anti-Semitism, and has not been shy about expressing his disdain for Israel.
According to a recent poll, one in three British Jews have considering leaving the UK due to the massive rise in attacks on the Jewish community. One in five UK Jews feel unwelcome, and two in five feel that they must hide their Jewish identify in public. The UK’s Jewish citizens will have to question just how dangerous Britain will be for Jews if the bigoted Jeremy Corbyn is elected Prime Minister. To what extent will a Prime Minister Corbyn appease his Muslim supporters at the expense of Britain’s Jewish population?
Germany has a Jewish population of a 120,000 strong. In 2015, Angela Merkel allowed the immigration of one million people from Syria, a country that is deeply hostile towards Jewish people and Israel. Predictably, anti-Semitic incidents have increased dramatically. In 2016 alone, 1468 anti-Semitic incidents were recorded in Germany. A 2016 survey by Bielefeld University indicated that 62% of Jewish respondents said they experience anti-Semitism in their everyday lives, while 28% said they were victims of verbal attacks or harassment. The survey would point to increased anti-Semitism by Muslim newcomers.
In December of 2017, thousands took to the streets of Berlin and burned Israeli flags to protest President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Jewish emigration in Germany has not yet occurred in large numbers. However, Germany’s Islamization is still in its very early stages, unlike the situation in the UK, France, Sweden, and Belgium. It has been under three years since Angela Merkel recklessly flooded Germany with migrants from Syria. How much longer will it take for German Jews to abandon an intolerable Germany? At this rate, not very long.
The largest Jewish population in Africa is in South Africa, home to 70,000 Jews. Islam is also South Africa’s fastest growing religion, with more than 700,000 strong. The governing ANC party has aggressively targeted the Muslim vote for years. South Africa is now a hotbed for anti-Semitism and BDS activity. In 2017, Tshwane University of Technology officially cut ties with Israel. South Africa’s second largest opposition party (the EFF) organized thousands to protest the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. Later in 2017, the President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, decided to downgrade relations with Israel in order to appease South Africa’s Muslim voting bloc. This blatant anti-Semitism has been a major factor in Jews emigrating from South Africa, at a rate of close to 2000 individuals a year, many to Israel.
Then there is Turkey, home to 17,000 Jews, which is one of the largest Jewish populations in Asia. The country is led by Islamist Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In 2010 Israel’s relationship with Turkey hit rock bottom, when the IDF intercepted six civilian ships bound for the Gaza Strip. After attacking Israeli soldiers with clubs and knives, several Turkish activists were killed when the Israeli soldiers acted in self-defence. Turkey downgraded its ties with Israel for 6 years. Erdogan has been a vicious critic of Israel.
Erdogan has tightened his grip on Turkey since the failed coup on 2016. In 2017, Erdogan referred to Israel as a “terrorist state” and a “child murderer.” Also in 2017, members of the Turkish Nationalist Movement Party, who are strong supporters of Erdogan, protested in front of an Istanbul synagogue. Rocks would later be thrown at the Jewish worshipers at the synagogue. Other Turkish synagogues were attacked throughout 2017. These attacks have been fueled by Erdogan’s anti-Israel rhetoric. In December 2017, Erdogan was the driving force behind the resolution at the UN that condemned President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Jews are feeling increasingly unsafe in Turkey, which is why close to 25 percent of Turkey’s Jewish population attempted to emigrate to Israel and Spain in 2017.
How many more countries will end up like France, Germany, or Turkey? It could be several. Israel must prepare itself for mass immigration (especially from Europe) in the coming years.
