Nowhere in this story do I hear these pious Jewish leaders expressing concern about what a flood of Muslims into Europe will do to Europeans. All I hear is concern for the refugees and concern for Jews. But what about concern for the goyim? Don’t they have a right to defend their civilization?
These Jewish leaders prescribe the opposite for the goyim (diversity) from what I presume they seek for Jews (cohesion).
Where was this Jewish enthusiasm for illegal immigrants when it was Africans illegally entering Israel and taking up residence? How come Jewish groups did not have similar drive to facilitate that demographic takeover of a native population? Where were the rabbis speaking out for subsidizing and encouraging Africans to pour into Israel? How come open borders is a wonderful idea for goyim but a terrible idea for the Jewish state?
Just because a group, be they Jews or Muslims or leftists, invoke the language of universal moral norms does not mean that this is the true criteria underlying their actions. You would be smarter to look at how what they are advocating benefits their group.
Making it easier for Muslims to illegally enter Europe and America is explicitly seeking the destruction of Europe and America.
What’s right and wrong here largely comes down to a simple question — whose side are you on?
When he looks into the tired eyes of the Syrian refugees now flooding Europe’s borders, Guy Sorman is reminded of his father, Nathan, who fled Germany for France just months before Adolf Hitler came to power.
“He wanted to go to the United States. Visa declined. He tried Spain, same result. He ended up in France, neither welcome nor deported,” Sorman wrote last week in an Op-Ed in Le Monde in which he argued that Europe should learn from its abandonment of the Jews during the Holocaust and accommodate the stream of migrants pouring through its borders from the war-torn Middle East.
Sorman’s view is not uncommon among European Jews, many of them living in societies still grappling with a sense of collective guilt for their indifference to the Nazi genocide — or complicity in it. At a Holocaust memorial event in Paris on Sunday, French Chief Rabbi Haim Korsia urged Europe’s leaders to match the actions of non-Jews who saved Jews from the Nazis by welcoming Syrian refugees.
Yet as many European Jews rush to the refugees’ aid in word and deed, some worry that letting them stay may further contribute to the anti-Semitic violence driving Jews to leave Europe, much of it perpetrated by immigrants from the Middle East. Eager to exploit such fears, ISIS claimed in July that it had sent 1,000 fighters to infiltrate Europe as refugees.
“Some of these new immigrants — the Syrians and Iraqis especially — have been taught to hate Jews,” Henri Gutman, president of the left-leaning Belgian Jewish cultural group CCLJ, wrote in an Op-Ed published August 31 on the organization’s website. “We risk further increases in anti-Semitism.”
While urging “generosity” toward the refugees, Gutman said Europeans must observe “imperatives of defense” against Islamism. The Central Jewish Organization of the Netherlands, where two elderly Holocaust survivors were hospitalized recently following an assault by robbers who appeared to be Middle Eastern immigrants, spoke to a similar tension in a statement from its chairman, Ron van der Wieken.
While “aware that some Middle Eastern refugees harbor very negative feelings toward Jews … Jews cannot withdraw support from those in need and fleeing serious violence,” van der Wieken wrote. He urged Holland to devise a “charitable” refugee policy.
Such tension even exists for some of the hundreds of Jews helping the refugees on the ground in Hungary, Austria, Italy and beyond.
“As Eastern European Jews, we carry the knowledge of how it feels like to flee our homes,” said Zoltan Radnoti, the newly elected chairman of the rabbinical board of the Mazsihisz umbrella group of Hungarian Jewish communities. “Still, I help the refugees with fear that I am helping send danger to other Jews in Europe. I know some of the refugees may have fired on our [Israeli] soldiers. Others would have done so in a heartbeat. I know. But I am duty bound to help.”
