France Once Again a Hell for Jews

Pages: 1 2

Second, it was in France, specifically Paris, in the 1890s that Zionist visionary Theodor Herzl experienced a revelatory sense that European Jewry was in grave trouble when he witnessed anti-Semitic mobs incensed by the trial of Alfred Dreyfus—a French Jewish army officer who was accused of treason and later exonerated.

Herzl’s sense of an emergency is considered to have been vindicated, negatively, by the Holocaust, and positively by the rebirth of Israel in 1948. Yet, today, “enlightened,” democratic France is once more a dangerous hell for Jews. There are some things that even monumental events like the Holocaust and the rebirth of Israel do not seem to change.

And finally, it is not, of course, the case that the Arab and Muslim world alone is responsible for the current plight of French and other European Jewry. As Jonathan Tobin notes,

The flow of raw hate speech against Jews from Cairo and Tehran and other Arab and Muslim capitals is not to be underestimated, but the willingness of European intellectuals to lend their support to the demonization of the Jewish state has given these sentiments a patina of undeserved legitimacy.

Under a thin veneer of “anti-Zionism” or “anti-Israelism,” homegrown European anti-Semitism has returned in full force as the Jewish state is singled out for boycotts and obsessive vituperation.

Some of the effects were evident in a study finding that 40 percent of Europeans believe Israel is waging an extermination war against the Palestinians. Here, sheer disinformation plays a part as a viciously anti-Israeli “elite” media portrays the Jewish state as singularly evil. But such disinformation is also an excellent way to awaken latent anti-Semitism.

If there is any redeeming feature to this situation, it is the growing realization by French and other European Jews that Europe is perhaps a lost cause.As Muslim populations grow, along with their electoral clout, and homegrown European viciousness toward Israel and Jews shows no sign of abating, there is no reasonable prospect that European Jewry’s lot will get much better.

Hence, this population should not wait for another Herzl to clarify things for it. Even the actual Herzl was only able to do a limited amount of good.

    It seems to me that Europe in general will realize too late, as it did in the past. Western democracy is being taken for a ride by medieval descendants from the middle east. Assimilation is practically dead, no longer possible in the world of technology and transportation-those people will never become civilized and will never assimilate. Stop immigration from those countries or drown your history and your culture.

    • Morty62

      What the muslim wants to do, as it always has, is simply inherit the creations and innovations of the cultures it overruns. Why invent anything when one day you will just move in and take what other cultures worked for. Islam is a parasitic and moribund society that only survives due to its fanaticism and its luck (having oil underneath its otherwise arid, godforsaken countries). Meanwhile, the Western left continues the self-laceration–the Crusades, Inquisition, slavery, imperialism, colonialism–hoping to generate enough Western self-loathing that eventually the whole project will fall on its own sword. I guess that's when they get their dreamed-of socialist Utopia.

  • Jimi Belton

    My heart goes out to the Jews of France…This will probably increase because no one in France will want to offend the muslems, and for certain, they do not want to be seen as compassionate to the Jews…..Compassion for a Jew is the worst kind of [political un- correctness]…It is a crying shame that the Jewish Citizens of France has to start immigrating to Israel for security, and their well being….But at least in Israel they can carry firearms for their protection….Or has that been changed…Jewish people of France, take your money out of France….That will awaken the Govt. faster than any words will…YHWH bless you….jbk

    G_D uses man to accomplish His plan . He will gather the jews from around the world back to Israel .In these days there will be no choice . The same will happen here , but for different reasons . Israel will be surrounded by armies of her enemies , and Jerusalem will be like a heavy rock around the neck of the world .HE will turn brother against brother ,father against son , as we see in the arab world today and as we are beginning to see here in the US , and in Europe .Great wealth will disappear in the blink of an eye as we have seen already but the next will be far greater .The Derivatives and Swaps debacle is not over , it lies under the surface of the bailouts and ever low interest rates .Many experts estimate the EXISTING LOSS exposure of America's largest financial institutions to be between 120 and 147 TRILLION DOLLARS .

  • Amused

    There will be wars and rumors of wars , men will lust after their own flesh , mens hearts will grow faint [heart attack is the #1 killer ] . When interest rates go up , the great financial collapse will come as the exposure to the derivitives become apparent and unavoidable ,and the jews will be blamed . It is no coincidence that the largest populations of jews in the US are in the New York City area and S.E.Florida for that is where the largest Ocean liners are .The muslims themselves are used by G_D to accomplish HIS Ends . Do not be so foolish as to think Republican or Democrat , right or left , Liberal or Conservative are of any consequence . mens hearts will not be judged by whom they hate , but rather by whom they love . There is no distinction of politics .

          I think it's a matter of understanding or not, and you are the beneficiary.

    • Sage on the Stage

      "It is no coincidence that the largest populationss of Jews in the US are in the New York City area and S.E. Florida for that is where the largest Ocean liners are." Excuse me?! WHAT does that mean? And Jews is spelled with a capital "J." You've got a serious problem, son.

      • Amused

        " son " ? I'm not your son , and you're no sage . The capital " J " has a reeeeeeal dark secrit meaning , and you picked up on that ! how astute !!! It means that I just decided to use upper case ….wooooooooo !!The secret's out ! .
        Now for your other uniformed ignorant critique . When Jews leave this country for Israel …and they will , they will have at their disposal most of the American Cruise ship fleets .This will facilitate their exit when Americans turn on them , and they WILL . And it will start with people who have similar mindsets as many encountered on this blog , who are already criticizing Jews for not being the kind of Jews they are expected to be .That is not holding the same petty views and hatreds that they should be sharing , if they were REAL JEWS . Greenspan was a Jew and so is Bernanke , and when the bill comes due for those derivitives and swaps that nearly busted our economy and is presently still reverberating throughout Europe and even China,then will come the real crash , a financial collapse such as the world has never seen , THAT will be blamed on the Jews especially those here in America .

        • Amused

          Got it figured out yet genius ," no coincidence" is a reference to Divine Providence , you know , the kind that has won Israel all it's wars , the kind that caused Truman to go against ALL advice and vote yes for recognition ….as one rabbi put it , [referring to Truman ] the reason G_D placed you in your mother's womb . Here's a word of advice for you " sage" don't open your mouth unless you know what you're talking about , because you certainly didn't know what I was talking about ,before you ran your mouth .

          • Sage on the Stage

            Well…at least I'm a REAL Jew!

        • Sage on the Stage

          What's the reeeeeeal dark "secrit" meaning? I just can't wait to hear it!

        • Sage on the Stage

          Next time I read your posts, I'll be sure to carry my de-coder, so I'll know what you're talking about.
          Tell us about the "reeeel dark secrit," why don't you?

          • nina

            And pray, who said that the Jews would leave the US? They have as much, no much more right to this country which they gave their brains and blood for, as this amused creature. It is funny that some people see any depth in this perfidious antisemite. .

  • Pkorman

    Either Europe will deal with this, or the intellect and wealth of the Jewish population will exit from their midst. Once the Jews are gone, who will be the next target for these predators?

      What the French and other Europeans will discover too late is the industriousness and intellect of the Jews has now been replaced by a bunch of mindless animals. Maybe they think the animals will eat them last.

  • Terry

    I think that the Jews of france and britain shoudl leave and go to Israel – these places are now host to cancerous populations of hate filled muslims, appeased at every turn by governments. This is 1930s appeasement of nazism right here in 2012.

    We can learn from the past, even as we see it repeated. Armed conflict against islam is inevitable – the muslims are crying out for it. Jews aren't wanted in europe and so the best place to take a stand against the new barbarians is in the land given to us by G-d. For sure, the conflict in europe wn't involve invasion – that has already occurred, and salvation will only occur fighting the enemy on home soil.

  • ze-ev ben jehudah

    I'm an old Jew living in Europe all my live. Just before the second world war antisemitism was booming
    as never before.Then came the war and lost all my relatives. I survived but do'nt call it luck because it
    is'nt. Now very sneaky antisemitism is rising in all parts of the world more dangerous and virulent than
    ever before.The means to kill every Jew on the face of the earth is at hand.
    So before I lay down my head fore good I wish all those Jew haters in the word to go to hell and burn
    there for eternity and may the devil feast on them without end.

    • Looking4Sanity

      I guarantee you your wish will come true. My condolences for your pain and loss.

    • johnnywoods

      My dear ze-ev, I appreciate your sentiments but your idea of the devil feasting on them for eternity is incorrect. The devil will be tormented enough for himself but that won`t make Hell one bit less tormenting for those "Jew-haters". They unfortunately will be unable to forget their hatred and it will torture them forever.

  • stern

    Perhaps it's time for the Jews in France to realize that the authorities are not going to defend them or protect them. And perhaps a French branch of the Jewish Defence League is needed?

    • Looking4Sanity

      They need to start goin' all "George Zimmerman" up in there! Nothing gives a coward pause faster than the prospect of being on the receiving end of a busted cap!

    • zalukas

      It's Europe, and France no less. What guns, what defense?

      Gun ownership is frown on. Ones Muhammadans smell fear, there's no stopping.

      And the cruel shame, that many French citizens of Jewish ethnicity supported the influx of

      7th century "culture" into their midst.

    Like millions others these are typical cowards. On the other hand the Jews of France can migrate. There are many welcoming countries outside the EU.

    What do you expect from people who eat snails and frogs, who have capitulated time after time in panic , whose Revolution was one of the most hideous and falsely praised (read Ann Coulter's DEMONIC)? The French have surrendered to mobs of malcontents, ingrates and bitter immigrants.

  • Linda Rivera

    Once Muslims become a significant number in the country they emigrate to, Jews are greatly endangered. Jews are the first target, ALL other non-Muslims are targeted second. Yet European governments and media, master propagandists for totalitarian, colonizing Islam, have managed to viciously brainwash Europeans that it is PEACEFUL Israeli Jews who are "waging an extermination war against the Palestinians".

    European governments and media have great guilt for their despicable lies and Islamic propaganda.

  • mrbean

    By some estimates, as many as six million French people, or just under 10% of the population, are Muslims, with origins in France's former North African colonies. In France, over the last ten years, about 90% of all births are babies born to Muslim parents. 75% of all Muslims in France are on the government dole. Little wonder that anri semitism is almost out of control.

    • Myriam

      Much more than six millions,probably between 12 and 15 millions or more.

      • Raymond in DC

        Definitely more than six million, but less than 15 million. But since French census doesn’t inquire about religion, and French leaders would rather not know, no one knows for sure.

  • Schlomotion

        You should take your worthless ass to any muslim cesspool in France – you know the housing projects where even most police refuse to go, put a yarmulke on that pinhead of yours and take a stroll – see how far you get before having trouble, but you don't have the balls

    • ziontruth

      Yes, we know you classical Jew-haters are big on the Jew retaining his "Wandering Jew" ethos. "Jews to Palestine!" in the 1930s, "Jews out of Palestine!" today, a contradiction that really isn't, it's nothing but a clear call for Jews to be on the move, for ever and ever.

      But we're done being your playthings, Jew-haters, and we have the force to back it up.

    • BS77

      I'd like to see you move to Somalia, or Iran, or Afghanistan and see how long that smirk stays on your face, you worthless bum. Schlomotion emigrates to Sudan. Yay!!! Have fun there, idiot.

      I wish it inspired you to move. Shouldn't you be at minus 80?

    The Jewish community in France is the third largest in the world. Even so, the French Jews need to leave as soon as practical. Happily, this time there is a Jewish state capable of taking them in. islam is destroying france jsut as it destroys anything it touches. The french are on the way back to medieval times, a stagnant economy, and a status of dhimmitude. They support shiftless muslims who sit in their subsidized apartments and breed with the second or first cousins to produce more demented creatures who are taught to hate non-muslims. muslims are parasites who add nothing to the overall culture or economy, but simply live off the generosity of their host while complaining about the paucity of public services. france is stuck with these people; those who are able need to find ways to reduce muslims to a harmless status and allow them to only torment one another.

    • Schlomotion

  • Amused

    I recommend to you Schlomotion to investigate the Simon Weisenthal Foundation and The World Jewish Congress , both of which I am a member ,both of which provide elaborate monthly newsletters enumerating by country the occurrence of anti-semitic acts occuring around the globe . And you mock this concern??
    Pray you never have to contemplate leaving the country of your origin, and all you have known , due to unreasoned hatred and persecution , and as apparent in France ,[ which btw TOPS the list presently ],the governments failure to protect you . Shame on your ignorance !

    • Schlomotion

      I really could use some elaborate monthly newsletters.

  • Amused

    No chump , I doubt you could . Sorry to use such a big word like elaborate on you , but I'll remember not to on the next smackdown . K ?

  • Robert

    Let's hope the Jews, when they are forced to move the Israel, also take all of Gods blessings out of France. They don't deserve any better, as is the case in all countries, where bullies of minorities are protected and the minorities neglected….

    Well done France, bravo.

  • Amused

    ….just a side note Schlomo , it's seems you enjoy wallowing in your ignorance …I could be wrong but I'm not.

  • Irritated by idiots

    Have any of you very strange people writing the most astonishingly ill informed commentsever been to France? Or read a history book (as opposed to some novel written by somebody with no intellectual credentials)? Or stepped outside your own religion and looked in? Or thought how it is for any group being persecuted? How about Muslim persecution in Israel?Frankly you will get far better protection of your rights in Europe, including France, than in USA or Israel, WHATEVER your religion or politics. Is that trueinIsrael? No, it is not, nor in most muslim countries. It is religion and intolerance that is at the heart of the problem. Grow up, travel, try and actually have a thought or two.

    • Amused

      Gee how many arab wedding halls have those intolerant Jews blown up ? How many arabs murdered for simply being arab ? How many 2 year olds bayonetted along with her 3 under 10 siblings ,mother and father ? Are jews teaching their children paradise is gained by killing an arab ? I've been to severakl arab countries as well as Israel many times , if you turn on the tv and watch one of the two palestinian channels you would think you were in the twilight zone , parades with 4 year olds dressed in jihadi garb with little plastic kalashnikovs . Idiots like YOU are an irritation . Because you'[re ignorant and speak out of the wrong end . Why are there monuments in gaza and the West Bank to suicide bombers ? There was a deranged jew who shot up a mosque killing many in cold blood , and there were in fact a few of his like minded freinds who attempted a monument , which was promptly torn down by the Istraeli Govt . You in your ignorance imply a moral equivelance between the Jews and Muslims ….there is none .

      • nina

        Ha, a shapeshifter. Ok. Any crumb of truth is welcome. What about the arab students at Haifa University who refused to sing the Hatikva, the Jewish anthem? Who is paying for their tuition? And what about the head of the Ben Gurion University who said that : we should have more arab students? And what about of the member of the Knesset who went to an enemy arab state even though it was not permitted, his family getting monetary help from the Israeli government? And how about the arab justice of the Israeli Supreme court who…things too numerous to mention. Poor, poor israeli arabs…

      Sorry, Idiot, we haven't had our brains turned to mush by Arab propaganda. America and Israel are far from perfect, but Muslims have more freedom in both countries than they have in the Muslim Mideast.

    france's jews are the canaries in the coal mine. after the canaries die, the miners must get rid of the poison, or they die too. we will see if the french just meekly await their deaths after the jews are gone, or if they do what is necessary to save their nation from the criminal horde they have invited to parasitize, then enslave, then genocide them.

  • Ronald Johnston

    The Jewish people all over the world should all come to America and let the rugheads kill each other off as they have been trying to do for thousands of years!!!! There is no reason not to come. We have completely open borders, thanks to our idiot government!!!!

    • Lee

      The problem with that idea is that the muslims have already begun crossing our open borders and waging the same kind of social jihad as in france. I'm thinking of imigrating to Israel becouse of the rapid loss of basic freedoms in this country.

    • johnnywoods

      Only problem with that is that the mooslims would then claim that the U.S. was their ancient homeland and the Jews stole it from them and now we have to give it back.

    After all that happened to the Jews of France…have they no shame? That Jews must flee their 'democratic' country?

  • Samir S. Halabi

    The French are just 'Prostitutes' they always were and will always be.
    Those bastards rounded up on one day in July 1942 13,000 Jews were rounded up which was known as (Le Vel d'hiv) by the Gendarmarie National together with PPF (Parti Populaire Francais) French pro-Nazi swines.. It wasn't enough that a French born Arab of North African origin murdered in cold blood a Rabbi his two children aswell as a 7 year old girl daughter of the principal of the Ozar Hatorah School in Toulouse. The french have shown their truee colours today at the UN voting for those Palestinian delinquents for phase two of Observer Status in the UN equivalent to that given to the Vatican. You would have thought that after the terrible shootings outside the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse there would have been a halt to further attacks directed against the French Jewish comunity, however the opposite happened, more attacks than before occurred.
