Exodus: Why Europe's Jews Are Fleeing Again

PARIS (Worthy News)– France has suffered the worst violence, but anti-Semitism is spiking across Europe, fueled by the war in Gaza. In Britain, the Community Security Trust (CST) says there were around 100 anti-Semitic incidents in July, double the usual number. The CST has issued a security alert for Jewish institutions. In Berlin a crowd of anti-Israel protesters had to be prevented from attacking a synagogue. In Liege, Belgium, a café owner put up a sign saying dogs were welcome, but Jews were not allowed.

Yet for many French and European Jews, the violence comes as no surprise. Seventy years after the Holocaust, from Amiens to Athens, the world’s oldest hatred flourishes anew. For some, opposition to Israeli policies is now a justification for open hatred of Jews – even though many Jews are strongly opposed to Israel’s rightward lurch, and support the establishment of a Palestinian state.

As Stephen Pollard, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle, argues: "These people were not attacked because they were showing their support for the Israeli government. They were attacked because they were Jews, going about their daily business."

Two-thirds considered anti-Semitism to be a problem across the countries surveyed. Overall, 76% said that anti-Semitism had worsened over the past five years in their home countries, with the most marked deteriorations in France, Hungary and Belgium. The European Jewish Congress has now set up a website, sacc.eu, to give advice and contacts in the events of an attack. — Source

    Time to put a menorah inside my window. (I'm not a Jew, but I support them and the right of Israel to exist.)

    Yeah, and I got blasted by some really "deep thinkers" telling me to get off the Yahoo forum when I told the Yahoo reporters that Hamas purposely puts weapons in buildings where where women and children would be—- they don't care about their own babies' lives, just their hatred.

      Dori, this is why some of us post in pseudonym. We have had our lives threatened by liberals and other a-theists when we present facts by posting in our real name. I'm all for dying for Jesus, but I prefer it be at the hands of the government and not another godless liberal who thinks it's "fun" to shoot up kindergarten classes or movie theaters.

      You can't overwhelm deranged people with simple facts, Dori. They think they can invent their own reality by inhabiting Planet Pelosi.

        Interesting comment on your preference of dying for Jesus.
