But Chancellor Merkel blames the usually pro-Israel and pro-Jewish conservative populists for the skyrocketing antisemitism in Germany. Mass immigration from Muslim countries is what will inevitably finish European Jewry.
The governments that currently lead Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, and Sweden will never take any meaningful action against Islamic anti-Semitism, due to the voting power Europe’s Muslims now possess.
That is why Merkel lied about the reason Germany is no longer safe for Jews. She would never offend her Muslim voters and jeopardize her party’s electability.
Jews must flee Europe, and Israel must help them flee.
Merkel refuses to outlaw Hezbollah, snubbing German Jews after kippah row,
By Benjamin Wienthal, Jerusalem Post, , May 30, 2019:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her interior minister, Horst Seehofer, ignored an urgent plea from the country’s tiny Jewish community to outlaw the terrorist organization Hezbollah amid a shocking climate of antisemitism.
When asked on Wednesday by The Jerusalem Post numerous times if the German government – in response to a demand by the nearly 100,000-member Central Council of Jews – plans to ban the Lebanese Shi’ite terrorist organization, Merkel and Seehofer refused to answer.
The president of the Council, Dr. Josef Schuster, said on Monday that “a full ban of Hezbollah’s organization has already happened in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom,” adding that “Hezbollah is heavily financed by Iran, and poses, in its entirety, a threat to the entire world.”
The US Embassy in Germany wrote on its Twitter feed on Monday: “Germany’s federal courts decided years ago that Hezbollah is a unified organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Symbols of Hezbollah are banned, why not the entire organization?”
Don’t blame the surge in European anti-Semitism on the Populists,
By Jonathan Tobin, National Review, May 30, 2019:
Downplaying the role of Muslim immigrants distorts the truth.
The latest news about the surge of anti-Semitism in Europe may not surprise people who worry about the rise of European populist parties. The populists opposing European unity and globalism are easily identified with the old Right in many countries. Many of their supporters — whether the right-wing AfD in Germany, the National Front in France led by Marine Le Pen, or the conservative ruling parties in such countries as Poland and Hungary — are also identified with traditional anti-Semitic attitudes.
So when a German federal official recently advised Jews to avoid wearing a kippah or religious head covering in public so they wouldn’t be targeted for violence, most foreign observers concluded that it was right-wing anti-Semites who have been attacking Jews, given that right-wingers have been making gains in elections, including in the recent European Parliament election.
The official, Felix Klein, Germany’s first “Commissioner for Jewish life in Germany and the Fight Against Anti-Semitism,” was criticized by many, including Israeli president Reuven Rivlin, for surrendering to the forces of hate. The outrage inspired the newspaper Der Bild to publish a cutout version of a kipah for readers to wear in solidarity with Jews.
