Around 40% of European Jews Hide Their Religion out of Fear

European Jews are growing more fearful of revealing their religion. A new report by the European Jewish Association (EJA) and the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE) shows that around 1.5 million European Jews choose to hide their religion. This figure is substantially higher than the results of a study last year by the European Union’s Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), which showed that 25 percent of European Jews were afraid to wear Jewish symbols in public. The situation regarding the safety of Jews in Europe has been deteriorating.

People are becoming more brazen with their anti-Semitism. The word “anti-Semitism” itself arose out of an older version of political correctness. German political journalist Wilhelm Marr invented the term in the 1800s, in order to sterilize the hate itself and make Jew hatred more of a scientific argument based on racial differences between “Semites” and “Aryans.” It was used as a political campaign against Jews, just as the BDS and anti-Zionist movements are used today. The word “anti-Semite” has lost its politically correct shield and thus, new campaigns against Jews had to be invented, all the while pretending to be solely political in order to gain acceptance and side-step the socially accepted rules of not bashing a group based on religion or race.

As a result, Jew hatred can be blatantly displayed once again in Europe under the guise of political criticism, and using Israel’s government as the excuse. This excuse falls flat when taken into consideration all that Israel does that is moral and just. For example, during Operation Protective Edge, while protests against Israel in Europe accused the Jewish State of war crimes, the truth was just the opposite: Israel was warning Gazans before bombing, taking every precautionary measure possible in order to limit the number of casualties and focus on the terrorists themselves. Unfortunately, Hamas did everything it could to increase the number of its casualties, using Gazans as human shields.

Nevertheless, Israel was demonized by Jew haters, European synagogues were attacked, European Jews were attacked, and the anti-Semites grew more brazen with displaying their hatred.

This is largely a result of Muslim immigration. Sure, there are European anti-Semites, but much of the Jew hatred we are seeing in Europe is coming from Muslim immigrants and their offspring. Now secure in their numbers, they feel confident enough to bash Jews in supposed “demonstrations,” (which often turned violent during Operation Protective Edge, especially in France where the protests became riots), even praising Hitler.

No wonder European Jews are afraid to wear Jewish symbols in public or otherwise reveal their religion.

Germany’s Shariah Police and Muslim Immigration

By: Y.K. Cherson

Today, September 19, German Muslims held a day of protest against ISIS or the “Islamic State.” All the major news outlets have reported on the display of “peace.” But just a couple of weeks ago, something more indicative of the subtle Islamization of Germany took place.

Late in the evening on September 3, 2014, 11 young bearded guys appeared in the streets of the German city Wuppertal. Dressed in orange jackets with “Shariah Police” written across them in huge letters, the men Continue reading “Germany’s Shariah Police and Muslim Immigration” »

Biden’s ‘Shylock’, Kerry’s ‘Apartheid State’ and the Anti-Israel Gov’t

By: Rachel Molschky

The stereotypical Shylock image which continues to appear in anti-Semitic Arab cartoons.

The stereotypical Shylock image which continues to appear in anti-Semitic Arab cartoons. It comes from Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice” in which a pound of flesh is the collateral for a loan from a Jewish moneylender.

For an Administration whose President was elected on promises of “change,” “progressivism” and “inclusiveness,” the amount of blatant anti-Semitism is anything but reassuring. The most recent gaffe was Vice President Biden’s casual use of the word “Shylock” to describe greedy moneylenders. After realizing his faux pas, Biden has since apologized for his “poor choice of words.”

This was just a minor slip compared to Secretary of State John Kerry’s “Apartheid State” comment, which spoke volumes regarding his true feelings toward Israel, despite his constant proclamations of support for the Jewish State during the peace talks, which deeply favored Arabs. Kerry has consistently slammed Israel, placing the burden of peace on the peaceful side, rather than accepting the reality of the situation that Israel’s “partner” in the peace process is a group of terrorists parading around as a government.

And no, I’m not talking about Hamas- Continue reading “Biden’s ‘Shylock’, Kerry’s ‘Apartheid State’ and the Anti-Israel Gov’t” »

More Muslim Refugees Coming to US

Bringing a little Syria over to the US.

The UN is working on sending Syrian refugees to the US, according to a new WND article. For the past couple of decades, the UN has sent between 200,000 to 250,000 Muslim refugees to the US. Most of these people have been from Iraq or Somalia, bringing with them the Middle Eastern and African cultural gems of female genital mutilation and other forms of misogyny like domestic abuse and even honor killings. They often settle in small towns which transform into Muslim enclaves and build mosques which become breeding grounds for homegrown terrorism for the next generation, or even this generation, as the Obama Administration has eased restrictions on asylum-seekers with terrorist ties entering this country.

Now to add to the Iraqi and Somali enclaves, will likely be Syrian Continue reading “More Muslim Refugees Coming to US” »

US Department of Justice Hopes to Stop Recruitment of American Jihadists

American Muslims are being recruited to join the jihad taking place in Syria and Iraq, and the Department of Justice is attempting to intervene with “programs”. What exactly these programs will be is not yet known, though the Associated Press uses the example of Minnesota with its efforts to curb the recruitment of Muslims from the local Somali community to join their jihadist brethren in Syria or in Somalia to join al-Shabab.

However, measuring the success of this outreach program is difficult. In Minnesota Continue reading “US Department of Justice Hopes to Stop Recruitment of American Jihadists” »

David Cameron’s Islamic Groundhog Day

By: Paul Wilkinson

Following the unfortunate news that on Saturday, September 13, British aid worker David Haines had been brutally beheaded in Syria, the cycle of denial and inaction after Islamic-inspired violence continues unabated in the former ‘Great’ Britain.

Allah’s willing ‘Islamic State’ executioner was a yet (at least publically anyway) unidentified as a ‘British’ citizen, with a south-eastern English accent, dubbed by the media as ‘Jihadi John’.

Jihadi John had already decapitated American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and now a taxi driver from Salford, Alan Henning, is the next in line to have his head cut off by this pious Muslim. Henning voluntarily teamed up to help with a Muslim charity (pictured below) to deliver aid to Syrian refugees but was kidnapped last Christmas time and will inevitably pay the ultimate price.

However Muslim groups are always quick to disassociate Islam with Continue reading “David Cameron’s Islamic Groundhog Day” »

Spotlight: What if the Arabs Had Recognized Israel in 1948?

The-Kotel-with-Israeli-FlagWhat would the Arab world look like today if Arabs had simply recognized Israel’s right to exist back in 1948? Instead, they have used Israel as a scapegoat and prolonged a conflict which could have easily been solved decades ago.

The following article is written by a Saudi, a retired Commodore in the Royal Saudi Navy, in fact. It is from 2011, and many things have happened since, none of which have altered the significance of this piece.

Islamic Caliphate: Europe and America Are Next

By: Y.K. Cherson

ISIS2

The Islamic Caliphate in Iraq and Syria is one of the most popular themes in the Western media now. Experts discuss all aspects of its tactics, talk about its leaders and weapons and where they got them from… Anything except the key point: what’s happening now in Syria and Iraq is a general repetition before transferring the war to the West, which is weakened and confused by liberalism and culturalism. However, the West and America are the next target of the mujahedins. And they do not hide it.

The slogan “there is no other G-d but Allah” is not only one of the religious pillars of Islam; it also regulates quite material issues, like for example, interrelations between Muslims- and those who confess other religions.

There are millions of Christians in the Middle East: actually, before Arabs invaded Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Iran and Iraq, they were mostly Christian countries. In Islam, Christians are treated Continue reading “Islamic Caliphate: Europe and America Are Next” »

Anti-Semitic attacks have increased by 400% in the UK and have doubled in France. Attacks in Europe overall have increased by 436%, and 383% in the world. People are becoming more brazen since the leftwing atmosphere and liberal groups, together with the growing Muslim community in the West, have joined forces to promote anti-Israel propaganda, a politically correct version of anti-Semitism.

Today marks 13 years since the terror attacks on September 11, 2001, when 2983 people lost their lives due to Muslim terrorism. We say we will never forget, yet somehow, ever since that fateful day our leaders have been covering up for Islam, pointing the finger at some “crazy extremists” who have “hijacked” a religion “of peace”.

This so-called religion is so “peaceful” that it is responsible for over 90% of the world’s terrorism, with Continue reading “9/11 Anniversary” »

Several Beheadings in Sinai by Terror Group

A beheaded body was found in the Sinai on Tuesday, with a note from the Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis terrorist group, claiming the victim was an agent for the Mossad. According to the Ma’an News Agency, the same group executed a second man the same day.

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which has ties to ISIS and whose name in Arabic means “Champions of Jerusalem”, took responsibility earlier in the month for the execution of nine Bedouins, with the same claim, that they had collaborated with Israel.

PA: Playing Football with Israelis, a ‘Crime Against Humanity’

By: Rachel Molschky

soccer-ballAccording to Palestinian Authority officials, there can be no good sportsmanship with Israel, and that includes football games.

Palwatch has uncovered the PA’s condemnation of a friendly football game which took place between Israelis and Palestinians. The event was a peaceful affair, with around 80 children, ages 6-16, getting together to play games. It was put together by the Peres Center for Peace, which has been organizing such events for 12 years in an effort to get the children to bond through sport. That is the Israeli perspective.

The Palestinian perspective is far different. Continue reading “PA: Playing Football with Israelis, a ‘Crime Against Humanity’” »

UN, PA Seek $550 Million for Gaza

By: Rachel Molschky

tunnel-priceThe United Nations and Palestinian Authority are seeking $550 million to supposedly rebuild Gaza after Hamas terror instigated a war. As usual, the plea is for humanitarian aid, in order to get food, clean water, healthcare and education to Gazans. The trouble is, the reconstruction of terror tunnels has already begun, and building materials previously sent to Gaza were used to build tunnels to infiltrate Israel, rather than to better the lives of Gaza’s residents.

The IDF blog reported that one terror tunnel required 350 truckloads of building supplies. Each tunnel costs $3 million, and with those same supplies, Hamas could have built 86 homes, six schools, 19 medical clinics and seven mosques (although mosques are hotbeds of terror activity, so we’re better off without those seven mosques.)

Over 30 terror tunnels were found Continue reading “UN, PA Seek $550 Million for Gaza” »

Ukraine: Ceasefire Is Signed; What Now?

At the beginning of September, the Ukrainian government of Petr Poroshenko suddenly requested negotiations with those for whom just a week ago he and his team had no other names but “terrorists” and “bandits,” who “must simply be killed like rabid dogs.” On Friday, September 5, the agreement for a ceasefire was signed.

Have Ukrainian politicians, who after the fascists they cherished and financed burnt 100 people alive in Odessa just because they dared to say they were pro-Russians, and cynically called the victims “shashlik (skewers) by Odessa,” suddenly become messengers of peace? No, not at all. The explanation for this surprising attack of peacefulness is simple: Continue reading “Ukraine: Ceasefire Is Signed; What Now?” »

“How can professors who are so biased against the Jewish state accurately or fairly teach students about Israel or the Arab-Israel conflict?”

This question was asked by Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, AMCHA Initiative co-founder and faculty at the University of California Santa Cruz. The AMCHA Initiative is self-described as “a non-profit organization dedicated to investigating, documenting, educating about, and combating anti-Semitism at institutions of higher education in America.”

As Lori Lowenthal Marcus of The Jewish Press reports, the AMCHA Initiative has developed a tool to see if a university professor is biased against Israel Continue reading “Anti-Israel Professors Teaching Middle Eastern Studies in the US” »
