Skip to comments.Europe’s Jews: Unwanted, Dead or Alive
Posted on 07/14/2014 5:56:19 PM PDT by robowombat
When the historian and founding president of Brandeis Abram Sachar wrote a history of the Jewish journey from the death camps to the establishment of the State of Israel, he called it The Redemption of the Unwanted. Ive always found the term to be depressingly appropriate, both as a profound statement on the flipside of the Jews being the chosen people and as an insight into postwar Jewry.
Though the Holocaust was over, anti-Semitism was not. And while some Jews bravely chose to rebuild from the rubblethey were rebuilding not just European Jewry but Europe itself, though their European brethren would never concede as muchthe Jewish people had understood their status. They were not fleeting victims or convenient scapegoats (or at least not only those things); they were unwanted, dead or alive.
Thats how it must have felt in the days, months, and years after the war. But now that decades have come and gone, should they still feel that way? Europes answer, repeated over the weekend, seems to be a clear yes. The main story of Sundays bubbling over of European anti-Semitism was the anti-Jewish riotingperhaps attempted pogrom is a better termat a Paris synagogue, in which Jews were trapped until evening by anti-Semitic protesters who tried to force their way into a Paris synagogue Sunday with bats and chairs, then fought with security officers who blocked their way, according to police and a witness.
The worst part is the sense of inevitability of the violence. Business Insiders report on the incident has to include one of the most absurd qualifiers youll ever read in such a case. Heres their opening sentence: French interior minister Manuel Valls condemned with the greatest force attacks on two Paris synagogues Sunday by pro-Palestinian protesters who broke away from an otherwise peaceful demonstration.
It was an otherwise peaceful demonstrationyou know, besides the attempted pogrom. (Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln .) And surely it is to be appreciated that the French government condemns pogroms. But is it ungrateful to point out that condemning the regular violence against Jews in France is just maybe not enoughnot nearly? French Jews are voting with their feet because they feel unwanted, and they feel unwanted because the French state either cant do anything about Frances horrendous anti-Semitisma second synagogue was firebombed in Paris yesterdayor it wont. Either way, the message is clear.
France was not the only location of European anti-Semitism yesterday. And though it may have been minor in comparisonand though there were anti-Semitic outbursts outside Europe toothe symbolism of one of the other incidents must have been truly terrifying. It was in Germany, and here is what happened, according to the AP:
German police allowed an anti-Israel protester to climb inside a police car and shout slogans including child murderer Israel and Allahu akbar! Arabic for God is Great! through a police megaphone, a spokeswoman for Frankfurts police said Sunday.
Police let the protester use the megaphone during a Free Gaza demonstration Saturday because he had offered to calm down a protest that had turned violent, spokeswoman Virginie Wegner told The Associated Press.
We as police had come up spontaneously with this unusual method and he abused it we didnt expect that, Wegner said, adding that police were investigating the incident. Police are neutral during protests.
Instead of calming things down, the protester whose identity was not revealed shouted anti-Israel slogans in German and Arabic in downtown Frankfurt. A video that went viral shows a crowd following the police car, cheering and repeating the chants.
I doubt the Jews of Germany will soon forget hearing anti-Jewish slogans shouted from a police megaphonein 2014. There are a couple of things wrong with the Frankfurt polices response. Obviously, letting a protester into the police car to access the megaphone was a boneheaded mistake. But then Wegner defends the police by saying, first, we didnt expect that, and then saying Police are neutral during protests.
Well, maybe they should have expected it, and hopefully will from now on. As for their neutrality, it is clearly neutrality in theory not in practice, and it is not doing law and order any favors.
Pogroms in Paris, thuggish intimidation in Germany: does European Jewry have a future? Its a question we keep asking, though I suspect we keep asking it because we dont like the apparent answerlike the kid who keeps shaking and re-shaking the magic eight ball until the right prediction comes up. Clarity might be more helpful, which the anti-Semitic incidents do provide. Europes anti-Semites could not be clearer: their hatred of Jews has nothing to do with Israeli self-defense. Its just a convenient excuse to target the unwanted.
Every Jew in France should emigrate here-except for the problem that white Europeans are not exactly welcomed by our present immigration laws.
The Euro tradition of hating Jews is very old and very pervasive. Everybody’s got their reasons but they are just such convenient scapegoats. Meanwhile, none of their kids have polio and cel phones. It’s essentially a near-genetic attribute of the vast majority of Europeans. And Brits.
meant: Meanwhile, none of their kids have polio and *all of them* have cel phones.
Well, they would be welcome if they vote democrat and against gun ownership while promising to do nothing for this country but collect welfare and protest with Occutards.
First they took the guns away... next there was nothing they could do to protect them.
Yep. Time for Aliyah
What do our euro-cousins expect when they let in hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of Muslims. They feed'em, clear up their parasites, house and clothe them, pay them for breeding and not working, so that there is always a mob of these bearded creeps in their weird hats available for instant mayhem.
Any of you FReepers ever see Marseilles, or Toulon lately, never mind the bainlieus of Paris where even the cops are afraid to enter? Marseilles, where the Muslim natives think nothing of taking a squat in the gutter. Toulon, where Muslim fast-breeders get an apartment for each wife and family and flood the schools with 25 children.
These 'anti-semitic' demonstrators are not Frenchman named Pierre or Bernard. They are low-end Algerians, Moroccans, Tunisians ... what used to be called the 'Arab Street.' They have nothing to do but absorb venom from their poisonous Imams.
I wish I could give every Jew in Paris an ax handle and 12 gauge pump. The filthy goat-buggering, girl-mutilating Worthy Oriental Gentlemen need to be thrown a severe beating, then loaded like cordwood for a quick C-130 ride back to some desert plateau in Africa and left there.
Keep it up we'll fix your Shiite for you and put your head where your Sunni never shines. Try us.
Look for more of the European Jews to move to Israel or to America.
The joke goes that Marseilles’ second language is french...
I lived in Toulon and been there done that, including getting in a fight with a youth herpes mouth muslim named ... Camel... Of all things. I was not even ready for a fight as they were instigated or trained but held my own even if smacked on the right cheek from the back.
Apparently Obama’s program is to emulate what is happening in France. The folly of admiration of athleticism and not formal education is what Marxists play into in order to fool industrialists. These little whoredom champions are getting their political NFL titles all right.
You cannot undo unrighteousness of this or that tribe unless you undo jewish inheritence. Someone out there is not plowing the ground for fertile growth, but laying hard asphalt with a checkering of a checker board for some evil sport not seen since the Apocalypse of the Incas and Aztecs, along with the fall of the Roman empire into games.
Games they want to make and play? We can do that too indeed. CAIR and Obama aint seen nothing yet... They have a head start like this Camel piece of crap.... But they have no replacement.
.. And it is ok to be the turtle in a hare’s race to crank out kids the way muslims do it... But one has to be willing to race. the French have completely abandoned and been demoralized, corrupt and rotten to the core, thinking only a hand out from government can give them children.
