How Did 150,000,000 Europeans Come to Hate Israel?
INN ^ | Friday, May 17, 2013 8:44 AM | Giulio Meotti

Posted on 05/19/2013 10:41:42 AM PDT by Olog-hai

“The Jewish religion is under attack in Europe”, declared the Conference of European Rabbis president Pinchas Goldschmidt. Many polls (such as the study on behalf of the German Social Democratic Friedrich Ebert Foundation) bring an iconic number measuring the disaster: 150,000,000 Europeans have a delegitimizing and demonizing view of the State of Israel and its citizens.

For a large sector of Europe, the cities, skyscrapers, hospitals, cinemas, and schools on that tiny sliver of land named "Israel" are merely real estate that will be restored to Islam once this malefic Jewish form is swept away.

This is a popular mobilization against Israel in the “Raus mit Uns” spirit. 150,000,000 Western citizens believe that Zionism is a misconceived project to be brought to an end as soon as possible. It is the consequence of the Palestinian-Islamic psychological war (note: the European Union has just contributed €20 million to the payment of salaries and pensions for April of nearly 76,000 Palestinian Arabs). … (A)ccording to Europe’s mainstream, “peace” will prevail when Israel is dismantled, just like tranquility will prevail in the “Holy Land” when Zionism has been eliminated.

Some columnist recently taunted Europeans for killing six million hard working and intelligent Jews in exchange for twenty million stinkin’ worthless muzzies.

Five minutes after Israel is dismantled, they will be demanding Spain back.

This isn't a winnable game for Europe.

Because the churches in Europe have appeased the Muslims years AND turned away from God.

Europeans have a very long history of doing it just that way ~ and when they run out of new arrivals, they'll turn on each other.

The muzzies are nuts to want to get in on that act ~

A great lie is told to the people of the west that makes many believe that these four are the same thing and that they are the same as the biblical nation of Israel. They aren’t.

Europe - the world’s most prolific killing field, in all of history.

It’s barely been more than two generations since their culture last roasted the Jews.

11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:
“You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael,
for the Lord has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward all his brothers

It’s in their DNA. The better question is, ‘when haven’t 150,000,000 Europeans NOT hated jews?’

Answer - When they can use them to get something from them (check your history)

China is worse BTW. Europe is unique in having had only 20 years of peace in the previous 3,000 years. That was the 20 years Filipe II/III bought by dividing much of North America among the great powers.

Yes, quite right, and talking about Spain, where do you think the picture below is taken?

a) The infamous Wall between Israel and the "West Bank"

b) Between the northern and southern part of Cyprus

c) Ceuta - a Spanish "autonomous city" located on the coast of North Africa

“This is easy. They are turning away from God.”

Even at the height of Christiandom there were pogroms against jews. I don’t like to admit it, but historically, we Christians have been champion jew killers. Most of us know better now. I think the reasons are deeper. This is something the Good Lord has decreed.

'Cause the damn Jews escaped from the beta version of the EU and got away to there, that's why.

Doesn’t appear to be a FReeper in spirit. There is no such thing as a “Palestinian”, and anyone who sides with the so-called “Palestinians” is giving assent to the Islamist Arabs’ Nazi-descended views.

Isn’t obvious?

Jews.

The Islamic radicals want all of the Jews dead. It is a tenant of their religion.

For the Europeans it is a little more complicated.

Anti-Semitism is embedded in the Europeans for ages old.

More recently it is part of the International Socialist thinking that colonialism is evil. The Arabs have used that theory to their advantage and called the Jews invaders/colonialist. Even though the Jews existed in Palestine long before the Arab/Muslims did; in fact the Muslims are the invaders in Palestine.

So it is ancient anti-Semitism and anti-colonialism/international socialism that drives the European hatred of Israel.

“Europe is unique in having had only 20 years of peace in the previous 3,000 years. That was the 20 years Filipe II/III bought by dividing much of North America among the great powers.”

What years were that? Do you really mean Europe from the Urals to the Atlantic or are you using some other criteria? By ‘peace’ I take it you mean wars between kingdoms not banditry or sectarian violence (It was a time of Catholics vs. Protestants), Your statement piqued my curiosity.

I suppose if we look at it through your lens of ‘peace’ North America is a pretty nice place to live. We’re lucky.

‘Palestinians’ have higher levels of education and income and longer life expectancy than their other Muslim neighbors. Mostly due to the presence of the State of Israel.

I’ve said for a while now that I fully expect to see concentration camps in Europe in my lifetime. The only question is who will be running them.

I am not at all happy to be making this prediction.

Their “detention centers” already have people locked up for 1½ years or more without representation (e.g. Lampedusa of the Pelagie Islands, the former Butlin’s amusement park in Mosney, Ireland; lots of others). Those would be very easily convertible into concentration camps.

From 2004, per post 6, which corrects some inaccuracies. Well worth reading, I’ve definitely seen it before.

Google “Julius Streicher” and learn how millions of Germans who had little or no opinions on Jews came to hate them. Then consider that we have hundreds of Streicher clones ensconced in today's media, not quite as openly bigoted but far more clever about concealing it.

yeah, even Spain and Netherlands cut back on the war and went to jaw jaw jaw. The 30 years war STARTED AFTER THAT PERIOD. The Religious Wars had been over for half a century. The battle of Lapento had happened before FIlipe II/III ~ so even the Turks were pacified.

It was one of those rare periods. Banditry no doubt continued, but kingdom on kingdom war ceased while America was created.

There are devout historians who believe there's a true connection between that act and the absence of traditional European wars at that time. I"ve found what seems to be the monogram IHS in the first North American continent size survey ~ also performed in that period.

Men were motivated to make this a good place. There were less motivated to make Europe a good place.

Artificially-induced famine deaths vs. specific, by-design mechanical human slaughter (gas chambers, etc.) are not the same in terms of specific intent. A subtle difference, but an important one, at that.
