PARIS (EJP)---Prominent Muslim and Jewish leaders from across Europe pledged to stand together against the rise of extreme-right xenophobic and racist parties that represent an escalating peril to ethnic and religious minorities across Europe, including Jews and Muslims.

These leaders made the pledge during a gathering in Paris of the “Coordinating Committee of European Muslim and Jewish Leaders.”

The first meeting of the Coordinating Committee was initiated by the New York-based Foundation for Ethnic Understanding (FFEU), the World Council for Muslim Inter-Faith Relations (WCMIR), and the World Jewish Congress (WJC).

It is follow up to the first annual Gathering of European Muslim and Jewish leaders, which was launched in Brussels last December.

Together with top communal leaders from Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the US, the Muslim and Jewish leaders announced plans for a series of public events in European capitals, on 9 May which marks Europe Day.

The leaders expressed deep concern about the emergence into the political mainstream of extremist parties in many European countries and declared that it was “totally unacceptable” that several of these parties had been accepted by governing coalitions as tacit partners where they are allowed to help shape the agenda.

Contending that “Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, xenophobia and racism must never be allowed to become respectable,” the leaders expressed disquiet over recent pronouncements by European statesmen including President Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Merkel of Germany and Prime Minister Cameron of Britain, characterizing multiculturalism as a “failure”. These comments, they said, have been cited by extreme-right parties as evidence that they are winning the battle for public opinion in Europe

It makes perfect sense to me.

The Left has embraced Islam as an ally against capitalism. These "Jewish Leaders" are Leftists pretending to care about Jews.

Alright then; guess that little incident in the West Bank town the other day (small thing; baby beheaded, family slaughtered) was no big deal.

We're all just one happy family, gonna sing We are the Weird and swing off into the sunset

The Jews are mad if they think they can make a deal with these guys.

Dhimmi left-wing Jews and radical Muslims.

What’s not to like about it?

Unless you want Western civilization to commit suicide.

extreme-right xenophobic and racist parties

Is this a news story or an opinion piece? The author is sure quick to definitively use these subjective terms as though they were facts.

It's not much different than what you would find in the WaPo or the NYTimes. I barely even pay any mind to the left wing slant of articles anymore. I pretty much take it as a given.

Jews and Moslems? Isn’t that like cats and dogs sleeping together?

Will this be an antiChristian wave to come?

Bizarre.

Unfortunately, the Jews will make a deal with the Anti-Christ.

Maybe the Lord’s return is getting closer than it appears.

Maranatha!

I'm wondering if any of these "Jewish Leaders" know what Tsav is.

Morons. Try “. . . extreme-LEFT, racist parties . . . “ because the socialists/communists/Muslims are tied at the hip. Once more the Euro Jews don't have a clue who their REAL enemies are.

If I were Jewish, I would be much more concerned over Muslim or Islam extremists than right wing groups.

It seems to me that Islamic and Muslim terrorists are much more of a threat to Jews than any right wing group.

Just sayin’.

Unless you want Western civilization to commit suicide.

The biggest nonsense is at the end of the article:

“If Europe wants to remain true to its ethical and spiritual foundations, it must embrace people from different cultures, religions and ways of life. If not, it will not only fail as a concept, it will lose its soul,” said FFEU President and World Jewish Congress Vice President Rabbi Marc Schneier.

Europe "remain true to its ethical and spiritual foundations"?

Europe is a continent of countries that are the ancient ethnic homelands. In other words: they're nations. Nations that carved themselves territory through centuries of often violent conflict.

They came to exist solely to provide a territorial home to a people. That's it. That's their foundation, not "ethics" or "spiritual" reasons.

It’s as disgusting as it is funny.

These “ethical” leftists don’t seem too concerned about the women and children who face torture and death in other cultures. That probably explains why judges in Europe will frequently drop all charges on foreigners accused of violent crimes. Left-wing “ethics” is all about feeling good about yourself for being “tolerant” and “non-intrusive” in the face of obvious evil. Of course, this “tolerance” doesn’t apply when a selfish disgusting leftist wants the money out of someone else’s pocket.

The Muslims can have Europe and all the leftists. They can all go sleep together.
