In an interview with the German newspaper Heilbronner Stimme, the former president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Charlotte Knobloch, voiced grave concern Friday over growing anti-Semitic sentiment in the country. She said that public Jewish life is under threat and can only be lived out in public with police protection and under the most serious security precautions.
Knobloch pointed out the fact that Hanukah celebrations in Berlin and Munich, as well as the large menorahs installed in both cities, were, by necessity, accompanied by massive, around-the-clock police protection. A large menorah installed in the city of Heilbronn, for instance, was attacked and damaged by vandals.
Knobloch also called for Germanys federal government to create a new authority to monitor and defend against growing anti-Semitism: Anti-Semitism has grown on the right and the left, in the Muslim community and also in the heart of German society.
Knobloch, who is currently the president of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria, says that an efficient approach to fighting public and covert anti-Semitism is long overdue.

Jews across Europe in many countries now need to live as if they have “gone into hiding”, but too many Jewish liberals in America see Trump as a menace, and Europe as a progressive model.

The Jews of Europe have been complicit in this outcome. They vote and support leftist causes and help import the very Muslim invaders who drive them out.
The Christians of Europe have been complicit too.
Muslim population on the upswing almost everywhere.
The context I was replying to was the typical “Jews have been complicit” line, though, that is designed to pile a heavier onus on Jews in particular. The point is that liberals are liberals.
