Prominent Jews Leave Amsterdam over Anti-Semitism
inn ^ | 12/19/10 | Maayana Miskin

A son of a prominent rabbi in the Netherlands has announced plans to move to Israel due to anti-Semitism. Benzion Evers, son of well-known Dutch rabbi Raphael Evers, told De Telegraaf that he feels “suffocated and caged” in his home country due to anti-Jewish sentiment.

“I'm fed up with the verbal abuse and the streetfighting,” he told Het Parool, another Dutch paper.

“It's not that you can't leave the house, but you need to constantly hide, to be careful,” he explained. He related his own cautionary measures, which include avoiding certain neighborhoods, and hiding his kippah (yalmulke) when walking through areas with a high number of Muslim immigrants.

Sounds like another ship or three needs to be contracted for voyages to Israel.

Wise move. Jews need to face it: "Never again" is just a slogan in this day and age. Cultural sh*t-holes like Holland will happily throw them under the bus just to keep the peace for awhile.

How does one say “For every Jew a .22.” in Dutch?

The US should offer all the Jews of Europe sanctuary and let them bring their money, trade, and talents here. The Europeans traded 7m Jews for 20M Muslims and uncounted illegals.
They all don’t need to go to Israel.

We cannot do that. We are too busy accepting Mexico’s unwanted trash and trash from Somalia and other Muslim lands.

If I were Jewish today I would think twice about going to Israel though, As soon as Iran gets a bomb they will be using Israel as a Nuclear test site.

Yeah like the 78% of Jews in America who voted for Obama and his Islamification of America along with union catholics and other idiots. Like Israeli Gene Simmons of Kiss (not his real name) who claims to support the military but voted for Obama.

Maybe Bloomberg who sold out American and NYC to Islam to build the 911 Victory Mosque can take give more muslims rent control apts in NYC so they can “convert” liberal Jews on the upper west side of Manhatan. They voted for Bloomberg & Obama’s Islamification of America.

“We cannot do that. We are too busy accepting Mexico’s unwanted trash and trash from Somalia and other Muslim lands.”

Enabled by the majority of American Jews and other idiots like Kennedy catholics, african americans, illegals and other evil fools who voted for the muslim.

BTW - I know conservative Jews who have left France and the UK saying pretty much the same thing this article said. I also know conservative gun owning Jews who pleaded with people not to vote for the islamist.

“Anti-semitism”?

Or muslims?

Anti-semitism sounds like there are roving gangs of Aryan skinheads.

The article, beyond the headline, says something else entirely.

Only for as long as they live. Which won't be long.

Are you saying You do not want Jews from Amsterdam immigrating to the U.S.??? Sounds like it. Do you think if Jews left the U.S. it would be a better country?

Ps. KISS ROCKS!

Just like they missed them when the Nazi took them? (I used to live in Amsterdam, so I know the answer to that one.)

No worries, Obama will soon sign a M.A.D. with Muslim nations, “guaranteeing” Israel’s security. And everyone will say, he’s finally won his Nobel Peace Prize. They’ll say “peace, peace” when there is no real peace.

End times it seems. The Jews returning to their homeland after 2000 years just as predicted in the Bible. Israel may get knocked around a little bit but she will never be destroyed again. see Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.

I doubt that the son of an Orthodox Rabbi who has denounced the Islamification of the Netherlands would support Obama.
