According to a recent Pew Review Western Europeans who identify as Christian are more likely than those who have no religious affiliation to express negative feelings about immigrants and religious minorities. At the begin period of the 21st century there are still a large group of Christians who also consider themselves to be the rightful heirs of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Looking at themselves as the sole legitimate heirs of the biblical promises because the Jews rejected and killed the Messiah.
There are people who find that Israel is The Jewish State, and as such is founded upon the teachings, traditions, and precepts of Judaism, the very foundation of which is War With Gentildom. Virtually every religious feast of importance – from Passover to Purim to Hanukkah–celebrates the destruction of Gentiledom. The 5 ‘books of Moses’ comprising… Lees verder This fighting world, Zionism and Israel #5
Lots of Jews have left Belgium and France to live in Israel, whilst others are doubting if they would make the move also. Though there are also several Jews who do not like the politics of the present Israeli governement and the attitude of fundamentalists and ultra-orthodox Jews. But staying here they have to face the anti-Semitism among anti-Israel demonstrators as well as anti-Semitism among Muslims and right wing Flemish or French nationalists.
To hear that the time for the Jewish slaughter has come is not an idea to stay in the public picture, so many keep low profile.
Jews who accepted Jeshua as their Messiah are threatened by three fronts, the Jews who find they are traitors or do not want to accept them as Jews, the Muslims who consider Messianics also false worshippers and several Christians who consider Jeshuaists and non-trinitarian Messianics like all other non-trinitarian ‘devils’ or workers of the devil.
- British Jews able to find some sort of balance between living with a strong connection to Israel + able to live comfortably in Britain
- Assimilation existed = challenge + anti-Semitism not a daily occurrence.
- in North London, many Jews live a Jewish life free from violent anti-Semitism
- obviously hate crimes, general bigotry and stereotyping
- Holocaust revisionism, claiming that 6 million Jews couldn’t have been killed in the Holocaust and that he had “seen proof” that the number was much lower.
- Jeremy Corbyn + Ken Livingstone + Jenny Tonge + George Galloway > normalizing anti-Semitism in the Labour party and in Britain
- Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in 2014. => protests over Gaza throughout the world unleashed outright Jew hatred both in the public square + on social media.
> Hashtags praising Hitler were trending, calls to kill the Jews at demonstrations + even Synagogues being rioted in Paris. All piggybacking behind the banner of accusing Israel of committing a “genocide in Gaza.”
- many British Jews already felt a need to keep their Judaism to themselves = should be Jewish at home + British in public.
- Now, whatever limited expressions of Jewishness Jews may display publicly is being condemned => Jewish community helpless in being able to protect itself, as self proclaimed anti-racists on the left, or groups that are protected by identity politics either perpetuate anti-Semitism, enable it, turn a blind eye or dismiss it as a smear.
- ask whether or not to see a future for themselves as Jews in the UK + What kind of Jewish life for our children in such an indifferent at best + hostile environment at worst towards the beliefs and values that define modern Jewish identity.
I grew up in an era where for most British Jews, we were able to find some sort of balance between living with a strong connection to Israel but were able to live comfortably in Britain. Assimilation existed and was a challenge and anti-Semitism was not a daily occurrence.
Living in North London, many Jews could essentially live a Jewish life free from violent anti-Semitism. There were obviously hate crimes, general bigotry and stereotyping that many Jews experienced at some time or another. But this was often explained away as being a phenomena that unfortunately exists, which Jews are not the only minority to experience.

In Belgium and Holland we may find several populist politicians who do not mind to be enablers of hate speech against certain groups of people and who do not mind to go in against the freedom of speech, expression and religion. since a few years Muslims could receive hate and abuse and more and more Jewish communities also became targetted. The number of suspected far-right extremists referred to the Prevent anti-radicalisation programme has increased by more than a quarter, new figures show, as the number of Islamists falls. Also in our regions we must be careful not to loose democratic rights, seeing that around us over half the nations in the world are experiencing significant democratic decline.
