Skip to comments.No Hebrew, Please — This Is Europe
Posted on 01/07/2013 2:01:25 PM PST by Nachum
I wrote about it here recently: Israels ambassador to Denmark and the head of Copenhagens Jewish community have both warned Jews in that city that if they dont want to be roughed up on the street by anti-Semites, theyd better not wear anything that would identify them as Jews and, for good measure, they should also lower their voices when speaking Hebrew. The other day, in a supremely depressing article for Israel National News, Giulio Meotti provided a round-up of similar developments from around Europe.
For instance: a Jewish theological seminary in Potsdam has asked its rabbis not to wear yarmulkes in public. Pupils at a Jewish school in Berlin have been warned to speak German, not Hebrew, on school trips and to wear baseball caps over their yarmulkes so you dont give stupid people something to get annoyed about. Jews at Romes main synagogue now remove their yarmulkes when leaving services; so do Jews in Malmö, Sweden. A Jewish teacher at an adult education center in Kristiansand, Norway, has been told that wearing the star could be deemed a provocation towards the many Muslim students at the school. And so on.
The reason for all this cautious behavior, of course, is to avoid the fate of people like the Paris Metro passenger who, Meotti noted, was recently beaten unconscious by a mob who pegged him as Jewish because he was reading a book by Pariss chief rabbi.
Even Meottis laundry list didnt come close to covering the full range of despicable anti-Semitic outrages, and reactions thereto, that have occurred in Western Europe of late. One example: in early December, it was reported that in the wake of episodes at Edinburgh University in which an Israeli diplomat was mobbed and a speech by Israels ambassador was disrupted by

It would be nice if the United States would help them, but American Jews voted 69-30 in favor of re-electing the marxist-muslim, so we’re out of the fight for stopping the next Holocaust. I guess they know what they’re doing.
You have to admit that the tolerance of the European Community is a shining example for the rest of the world follow. /Sarcasm
no, time to stand and resist! Don’t let this Nazi stuff happen again—compliance doesn’t stop the crazies, and cooperation (work) doesn’t make the victim (concentration camp worker) “free.”
Sounds like history repeating itself, because the Jews last time were gradually isolated, separated, and then killed. The Germans made sure to ostracize the Jews and blame them for everything.
So sad to see this kind of thing happening again.
Even sadder, I think this time Christians will be included with the Jews. God have mercy on all of us!
No, wait, that's what the other group from that Middle East is planning to do to Europe.
I’ve been trying to stay off these threads because I’m afraid I’ll go on an epic rant that will get me banned.
Next time Europe wants to commit suicide, we let it.
They are treating Jews as they treat Christians. Lefties have an alliance with the islamists and so they hate the sound and sight of both orthodox Jews and Christians.
It really is time to get out of Eurostan and it is time for Jews to understand and destroy the power alliance here in the US.
It's a pity the europeans don't seem to care about the Lord!
However speaking Arabic, wearing burquas and turbans are welcomed as multi-cultural diversity. All hail Euro-weenies as tyrants.
So much for, “Never again!”

I can only guess these are Muslim areas; I know that as an American I wouldn’t walk down ANY city street with a gold chain around my neck. In fact, to be in any New Jersey city at night you have disguise yourself as a homeless person. I wouldn’t mind so much, but it is hard to get the “I crapped my pants” stains out...
Unfortunately, it is the same alliance that the socialists had with the Islamists in WWII. They hate Jews and Christians.
So speaking Hebrew causes antisemitic attacks just like wearing sexy clothing causes rape. Who knew?????
When is this tolerance of evil going to stop? The world is so upside down these days, I don’t even know where to begin.
Those wacky Europeans are going to party like it’s 1939 all over again.
Historical note: Christians were included with the Jews last time, too. I've seen estimates ranging from 3 million to 7 million Christians murdered by the Nazis, including at least 3 million Polish Catholics. Famous Catholic and Protestant clergy in Germany were put in camps to die as well.
Yes, or to travel in a group wearing a yarmulke and carrying a BIG baseball bat.
