YNET: German Jews fear rising anti-Semitism during Mideast refugee influx
Jews fear attacks by refugees from countries hostile to Israel, adding another level of complexity to the enormous challenge facing German society.
When Judith G. helped out at a refugee center near Frankfurt last October and identified herself as Jewish, she was spat on and insulted.
German Jews say the case of Judith G., a 33-year-old optician who asked not to be fully named, isn’t isolated and underlines concerns many have about the record arrivals of asylum seekers, largely from Muslim countries in the Middle East.Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Official figures show German-born far-right supporters commit the vast majority of anti-Semitic crimes in the country, and Muslim leaders say nearly all asylum seekers – who can be targets of hate crime themselves – are trying to escape conflict, not stir it up.
Nevertheless, Jews across Germany are hiding their identity when volunteering at refugee shelters for fear of reprisals, adding another layer of complexity to a social, economic and logistical challenge that is stretching the fabric of German society. (cont.)
Complexity? What complexity? "Complexity to the enormous challenge facing German society?"
Who cares? While Esau (Edom/Rome/The West) and Yishma'el (Arabs/Islam) battle it out, Jews have two choices, to remain on the battlefield as sitting ducks, or get out.
Jews like Judith G., who mean well, need to get a clue and get out of Germany. It's not your country, Judith, and those million "refugees" appear to be there to make sure that you, and all of the other Jews still in Germany, finally get the message.
Unfortunately, it may already be too late for Jews like Nina Peretz and the other “Friends of the Fraenkleufer Synagogue.”
Some Jewish groups, such as the Berlin-based “Friends of the Fraenkleufer Synagogue”, have taken the cultural exchange issue into their own hands with around 40 volunteers helping out at a local refugee center.
“We want to send a message to all the Jews who sit at home and build big fences around their synagogues that it’s possible and necessary to approach one another, because if we don’t try, things can only turn for the worse,” said Nina Peretz, head of the initiative.Their actions are reminiscent Jews in Israel who have reached out to Arabs, opened their towns to them, and have gotten wounded or killed as a result. Efrat, Otni'el, and Teqo'a, are only a few of the towns affected, not to mention Israel's capital of Jerusalem.
And, who can forget the three boys who were killed, after being tricked by an Arab who feigned car trouble?
Coexisting with goyim may be a necessity for survival, while residing in the golah (exile). But anyone who has ever visited a zoo should know that come feeding time, the zookeepers do not hand feed, and try to pet, the big cats, the alligators, or the poisonous snakes. Instead, they know to keep their distance, and not bother with cultural sensitivity training. Although the president of the Central Council of Jews might think so...
“Among the refugees, there are a great many people who grew up with hostility toward Israel and conflate these prejudices with hatred toward Jews in general,” Josef Schuster, president of the Central Council of Jews, told Reuters in an interview conducted in October.When will we ever learn? When will we finally stop repeating the same mistakes, expecting different results?
Like I said, Jews in Europe have two choices, to get out now, or to wonder around in the plague of darkness (Ex. 10:21-23), which they do not even know that they are in.
According to a 2013 study by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights, 64 percent of German Jews avoid the public display of symbols that would identify them as Jewish. It also found that only 28 percent of them report anti-Semitic incidents.
Such incidents, as recorded by the Interior Ministry, dropped in 2015 but Jews still remember chants by young Muslims proclaiming “Jews to the gas” on German streets in protests against 2014's Operation Protective Edge.Yet again in this report and others like it, aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel) is never mentioned as a solution. Israel's own attacks, by both Arabs and its own
