Disappearing Jewish Symbol Reveals Europe’s Submission to Islam


What do Paris and Malmö, Marseille and Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam have in common? Yes, all these cities belong to the European Union. But they also share a dark feature: in these cities, the kippah, the Jewish symbol par excellence, is disappearing.

It just happened again in Paris, where two Jews have been attacked with hacksaws; both suffered cuts during the struggle. They both wore a kippah. They were a target.

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights revealed that a third of the Jews of the Old Continent has stopped wearing religious symbols because of fear of attacks. The president of the Jewish Consistory of Marseille, Zvi Ammar, asked the Jews “not to wear the yarmulke in the street so as not to be recognized as Jews.” The same appeal was addressed to the Jews of Denmark: it was dangerous in Denmark in 1943; it is still in 2017.

The Jews in Marseille, where the community has been asked to avoid wearing the kippah, live in a nightmare: they go to synagogue at groups of 10 or 15 to better defend themselves; there are mothers, when going shopping in Hebrew stores, who leave their children in the car with someone else; the 22 Jewish schools and synagogues are monitored by the military; and parents have organized patrols around schools. I have seen the same level of security and protection only in the brave Israeli enclaves in Judea and Samaria.

“It is better you wear another hat,” said Josef Schuster, chairman of the board of the Jews of Germany. And the Abraham Geiger College in Potsdam urged students not to wear the kippah out on the street. The Jewish community of Norway has adopted “invisibility” as a way to live safely. The same thing is happening in Sweden and Belgium. Jewish symbols are disappearing all over Europe.

There are whole areas of Europe where it is better not to be recognized as Jewish. It is happening today, not in the 1930s. “The European Jewish community is dying,” said Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, the world’s leading expert on the Talmud. The Jewish community in Norway spends half of its budget on security. “Are Jews abandoning Antwerp?,” headlines De Standaard. The Belgian newspaper predicts that in fifty years there will be no more Jews living in the city.

Even in Finland, where a small but historic Jewish community has always lived in peace, the Jewish community has issued a directive asking its members not to wear the kippah in public. In Malmö, Sweden, the situation is even more dramatic: the Jews there live like Christians in Mosul.

In Paris, Jews are advised to “walk in groups,” never alone. In the Netherlands, the country of Baruch Spinoza and where the Spanish Jews during the Inquisition, a group of Jewish girls of the same age as Anne Frank, the author of Holocaust “Diary,” told the daily Het Parool that they never leave home with the Star of David around their necks. Standing in front of the famous Portuguese synagogue of Amsterdam, built in 1675, in a period in which the Netherlands welcomed the Jews from all over the world, today is “not safe.”

It is a dramatic phenomenon: first, the kippah disappears in the streets, then the Jews themselves flee these societies. 40,0000 Jews have left France in the last fifteen years, one-tenth of the whole French population. In the tolerant, liberal and democratic West, where Muslim minorities have become more and more assertive, Jews have become more and more “invisible.”

The European Jewish Congress has publicized a shocking poll: “A third of the European Jews think of emigrating.” That is 700,000 people. The future of Europe’s Jewish community probably lies in Israel. I am happy for my Israeli friends who will receive this wave of educated and good immigrants. But what’s left to Europe? Burqas instead of kippahs?

It is as if the best way to stop Islamic violence is to withdraw, step aside, hide, and do everything to avoid triggering a possible action against us. The cultural retreat of the West unfortunately recurs in every day’s news, and the retreat is turning into a surrender. We must stop whistling in the dark. We cannot accept retreating without moving a finger, without fighting, without protesting, without sounding an alarm bell. A Jew hiding the symbols of his identity for fear of being recognized as a Jew is the perfect representation of a world that forces the West to hide itself for fear of provoking the reaction of those who want to stab us.

The vanishing cross from Mosul pointed at the Islamization of the ancient Mesopotamia, as the disappearance of the Jewish symbol reveals Europe’s submission to Islam.

    If one understands reality, the loss of European Jews and the impact of Muslim demographics means two major losses for Europe, the first the result of the diminished Jews’ contributions to humanity, the second the refusal of Muslims to integrate, the impending destruction of European culture over time as the 8th century mindset of Islam begins its destruction of Europe – by century’s end, Europe as we have known it will come to resemble the failed states of the Middle East – a pity since Europeans have been warned of this trend for years without ever educating themselves on the magnitude of the threat – RIP what once was

    • Speak the Truth

      Western countries are foolishly “trading” educated, integrated, assimilated, law abiding, tax paying citizens for uneducated, unemployable, criminally violent, welfare-sucking immigrants, who have no ability or intention of integrating or assimilating. What could possibly go wrong?

      • X@mailinator.com

        The bleeding hearts of the world continue to ignore basic concepts like how a dollar spent educating someone in their home place, brings equivalent benefit of well over a hundred dollars spent trying to save one lonely individual and allow them to migrate. It’s the 100 to 1 constant factor regarding migration. Numbersusa.com

    • X@mailinator.com

      Was watching old 40’s movies the other day. What a wonderful world we used to live in, where it was o.k. for Christians to be over here, and muslims to be way the fk hell a far away over there. Assimilation or forced dilution? Proud to be Christian. Proud to be American. Proud to be an isolationist. What the world does is not my problem. My concerns are limited to the USA. Should any Europeans wish to maintain traditional values and lifestyles, they’re welcome to migrate to the USA. The new face of Chrisendom appears to be in Russia, Africa, and hopefully resurgence here in the USA. aka; World Affairs Brief.

    Western europe is an islamic caliphate waiting to be declared, what you’d be expect from islam? Jews and Christians are selected along with all other non muslims for murder. It is very simple, if islam is not destroyed, it will destroy, western europe is dead.

    • Semur Jengkol

      you still have some hopes : migrate to North pole

      • Mahou Shoujo

        You really don’t pay much attention do you, I live in Canada’s north, it isn’t that far.Western europe will be a parched desert with diseased starving muslims fighting sheep for roots. You might want to consider moving to oman, where your muslim brothers will take care of you.

        • X@mailinator.com

          From what I gather, Canada is worse off than the USA. Any thoughts?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Suspect it is very bad in southern Ontario, in the north, there are a few muslims, but like everyone else, spend their time not freezing to death. Overall I think America has it worse baed on higher concentrations of muslims and a very sympathetic black submissive population that are inclined to be against anything seen as normal.

            I noticed that at Lake Tahoe a some years ago, that while the SF Bay Area with its mild climate was teeming with street criminals and homeless, the freeze every winter seemed to keep Tahoe clear of such problems for the most part, though only a few hours drive away from SF.

      Islam is an outdated tribalistic religion designed to enrich Mohammed and his other Mafia members. Muslims attack Jews. How many scientific/medical/economic/cultural movements are related to Islam? NONE

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Hehehehehehehehehehehehehe, except for the fact muhamMUD enjoyed sucking the tongues and penises of little boys and the fact Afghani muslum men have been molesting little boys for centuries.
            Ancient Afghani poem:
            Across the river I see a boy
            with buttocks like a peach
            alas, I cannot swim.

          • Semur Jengkol

            such a gross perversion ….

            btw ….can those perverts migrate to your countries so their passion for butt related activities will be celebrated and accommodated ??

            I can imagine they will be welcomed with big banner:

            “”..Welcome to our butt land …Enjoy your butt life here ….””


          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Hehehehehehehehehe, which is why Iranian, Afghani and Pakistaini men love little boy butt Semen and it’s all completely legal.

    • Erica Ling

      “An outdated tribalistic religion ” only existing through coercion, physical and psychological threat and fear of sadistic torture and death for any Muslim trying to leave. How well you describe your religion. I rather like this description, too “Muslims being poor and uneducated, are much more reproductive than others. ” http://faithfreedom.org/oped/sina31103.htm I suppose one can only contribute within one’s capabilities.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        I hope you’re not using your real name here. It’s a bad idea, especially if you live in the United Kaliphate.

        • Erica Ling

          I may be a mere woman, only half the worth of a man, but I aint that silly ! Especially with family to shield. What a sad reflection on this 21st century and our advancement of human rights.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            LOL. Do you feel deficient in intellect as well?

    • X@mailinator.com

      I thought the majority of muslims lived in dirt huts, pooped in gardens, refused to use toilets, refused to wash their hands, and had a pleathora of STD’s so severe that it forces all women to cover their faces to hide the hideous side effects.

      • Semur Jengkol

        yep …. you thought …

  • hal8196

    All I am hearing about in from our mainstream media is how Kellyanne Conway sits on a couch, and how Russia stole the election from Hillary. And they wonder why their ratings are lower than Congress?

    • Erica Ling

      How could you miss Kim Kardashian’s boobs and the Oscars fiasco ? Sacrilege !

  • MattTarango

    It would seem, it’s happening again. And all because of ‘liberals’, never letting us forget it. How ironic.

  • Ichabod Crain

    The Jews in Europe are the canaries in the coal mine. Political leaders better pay attention.

  • James Stamulis

    And soon it will be Christians joining them by not wearing their crosses in fear of attacks unless all civilized people rise up and purge their countries of these vermin called Islam.

  • X@mailinator.com

    In response to anti Christian rhetoric from many parts of the world, I shop at Hobby Lobby more often. Have three beautiful small crosses on my front fence line. Put your money where your mouth is, utilize the power of stickers, symbols, clothing, etc. Make a statement every day of the week, some how, some way.

  • marlene

    Jews should leave Europe, to its own destruction. It deserves the muslims it gets.

  • Jewy Jewinstein

    Racist Muslim hating Jews should be sentence to life servitude to there superior Islamic masters !
