Murderous Muslim Malice in Europe

"The cops would say, if a synagogue went up in flames but nobody was hurt, it's a criminal act, not a hate crime."
"If people leave religious objects -- a kippa [skullcap], tefillin [customary prayer fittings worn by the Orthodox] -- in a car, the car will be attacked."
"Jewish homes find swastikas on their mailbox. White powder sent in envelopes."
"Kill the Jews [is shouted out during demonstrations where Hamas and Islamic State flags are flown]."
"[Arabs and Africans would be less bold] if they didn't have the sense that they were encouraged by political movements and opinions in France that incited them to behave in this way."
"The French public doesn't care when the Jews get attacked. [Had the HyperCacher market massacre not been linked to the Charlie Hebdo massacre, it] would not have been a big deal in France."

The balance of security for Jews worldwide, after a lengthy post-World-War Two period of relative relaxation in anti-Semitism outbreaks in public has now dipped back toward a new, virulent anti-Semitism that has tipped the scales into the danger zone so familiar to Jews throughout history, and all thanks to two events.

Bizarrely, in the wake of the Holocaust, it became a survival imperative to Jews that they renew their acquaintance with their geographic inheritance, returning to the land where ancient history found them, in the Middle East, to rejoin others of their still-intact presence on the return of those of the diaspora who had been exiled thousands of years earlier, for a great in-gathering in a place of their own, where they would be safe and secure.

The land known latterly as Palestine in the 18th and 19th Centuries within which sat the ancient Jewish capital of Jerusalem, taken variously by the Romans at the second sacking of the Temple of Solomon, then by the Christians and finally by the marauding conquest-driven Muslim hordes, was never without its resident complement of Jews who remained despite slaughter visited on them through the Crusades and the sacking of Jerusalem.

Arabs from Egypt, Syria and the land now called Jordan had gradually moved into the area alongside its Jews, but even so it was sparsely populated, a worn and empty landscape, forlorn and forgotten. Until the British occupied it during the Second World War and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. And the land was divided and allotted to newly emerging Arab nations. A portion promised to Jews to restore them to their ancient homeland, but later sheared off again to create TransJordan and yet again to partition for both Jews and the resident Arabs.

Tribal rivalries and sectarian conflict and lack of economic opportunities, alongside tyrannies oppressing the people in the Middle East, Southeast Asia and North Africa leading to bloodshed persuaded many Arabs to immigrate to Europe and North America. Those two signal events, the creation of the State of Israel and the migration of Arabs to Europe, ensured the raging return of anti-Semitism to blaze forth in full threat and volume once again.

Arab leaders and Islamic clerics were outraged that Jews dared occupy land they recognized as being consecrated to Islam. The solution was seen in the benefits of allied Arab armies marching on Israel to destroy it. That solution failing, the time was ripe to raise non-state militias to wreak terror on the Jewish community, while exiling Jews from their ancient homes in Arab and Muslim countries. Europe received new Muslim citizens bringing with them an ardent anti-Semitism that outdid indigenous European racism.

 During a 2014 "Day of Rage" march where 17,000 mostly French Muslims demonstrated, the slogan "Juif, la France  n/est pas a toi" (Jew, France does not belong to you), signage was prominent. This, in a country where Jews have lived for hundreds of years. Where, as well, the Muslim community now vastly outnumbers the Jewish community, as it does throughout Europe, with predictable consequences. Jews no longer feel safe and secure in countries where they have lived for centuries.

In European countries where they would never have believed that they would be turned over to Nazi Germany by their non-Jewish counterparts, to die in their millions in death camps. Where, in France, Ukraine, Poland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Holland, Norway and elsewhere throughout Nazi-occupied Europe, national police give enthusiastic aid to their German fascist occupiers in rounding up the vulnerable families meant to be earmarked for a grotesque scheme of mass extermination.

"Just recently, what we considered to be established by the authorities of the French Republic across party lines, proven by all historians and confirmed by the national conscience, was contested by French political leaders prepared to trample on the truth. Responding to these counterfeiters is to do them too much honor, but to leave them unanswered would be worse, making us accomplices."
"So yes, I will say this here: it is France that organized the round-up, subsequent deportation and, consequently, for almost all of them, the death of the 13,152 French Jews dragged from their homes on July 16 and 17, 1942. More than 8,000 were taken to the Vel d’Hiv before being deported to Auschwitz. Among them were 4,115 children aged between 2 and 16 years, whose memory we are today honoring most particularly and for whom I would like us to observe a minute’s silence."

"I condemn all the tricks and subtleties of those who claim today that Vichy was not France, as Vichy, of course, did not represent all French people, as you have recalled, but it was France’s government and administration."
"The crimes of July 16 and 17, 1942 were the work of the French police, obeying the orders of the Government of Pierre Laval, the General Commissioner for Jewish Affairs, Louis Darquier de Pellepoix, and of Prefect René Bousquet."
"Not a single German took part."
"I also condemn those who practice relativism, explaining that exonerating France from responsibility for the Vel d’Hiv round-up would be a good thing. And that would mean following in the footsteps of General de Gaulle and François Mitterrand who never said a word about this subject. But there are truths that can be bridled by the state of society with trauma still raw for some, while others remained in denial."
French President Emmanuel Macron 

Too little, too late. The inundation of Europe by Islam has destroyed any likelihood that Jewish lives will remain safe living among Muslims whose culture and religion espouses hatred toward Jews. From Sweden to Denmark, Norway to Holland, Britain to France among other countries whose populations like those in Germany and Austria have become crowded with Muslim immigrants and refugees, there is no longer any place within those crowds for Jews to live with a modicum of security.
"A newly-published report from a leading Norwegian university on antisemitic violence in Europe has concluded that in six of the seven countries it surveyed, 'individuals with backgrounds from Muslim countries stand out among perpetrators of antisemitic violence in Western Europe'."
"Antisemitic Violence in Europe — authored by Johannes Due Enstad of the Center for Research on Extremism at the University of Oslo — examines incidents of antisemitic violence in France, the UK, Germany, Russia, Norway, Sweden and Denmark between 2005-15. Only in Russia — where the lowest level of violence against Jews was recorded during that ten-year period — do far-right skinheads and Neo-Nazi extremists predominate overwhelmingly among the perpetrators of these acts."
"'Attitude surveys corroborate this picture insofar as antisemitic attitudes are far more widespread among Muslims than among the general population in Western Europe', Enstad wrote."
Ben Cohen, July 7, 2017, Algemeiner
