Our Two-Pronged War

Its open season on Jews in Paris. Saturday, as they were walking home from Mincha prayers, three counselors of the Bnei Akivah youth group were brutally attacked by a gang of Muslims. The counselors were walking when they had chestnuts thrown at them. When they protested, anti-semitic slurs were hurled. 10-12 gang members then joined in and beat them with brass knuckles.

This was the second attack near the Bnei Akivah branch in two months. In June, another 17 year-old Jew wearing a kippah was beaten up by a Muslim gang. And a few months ago, a neighbourhood store was caught selling shirts that read, in German and Polish, "Jews forbidden in the parks". Anti-semitic attacks are very common in France. The radical Muslim population is growing exponentially, veiled women from head-to-toe are a very common sight, and mosques are popping up all over the place. The same pattern is repeating itself in the UK, in Germany and all over Europe. This Islamic fundamentalist Jew-hatred combined with "the new-anti-semitism" of the anti-Zionist Left is lethal to Europe's remaining Jews. Many Jews no longer feel comfortable enough to wear kippot in public or to identify themselves as Jews. Entire communities are under siege as going to synagogue literally becomes an ordeal amidst intense security, guards and routine checks. Synagogues, monuments and Holocaust memorials are routinely vandalized. A few weeks ago, a video was placed on YouTube (and subsequently banned) showing a group of Greek students in Rhodes urinating on a Holocaust memorial with violent rock and anti-semitic lyrics in the background. The Monument to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin was defaced for the tenth or so time.

Europe's tragic history is repeating itself. It feels eerily like 1938 for Europe as attacks on Jews reach a fever pitch. Not only are Jews violently attacked by Muslim anti-semites but the Jewish State is regularly demonized, delegitimized and condemned. The writing is on the walls for the Jews of Europe as Muslim sonei yisrael as well as Leftist anti-semites work tirelessly to make Jewish lives miserable. The Jews of Europe face an existential threat as the radical Muslim influence is growing. In mosques all over Europe (and the world), Jews are dehumanized, compared to insects and diseases and threatened with extermination. Millions of young Muslims are indoctrinated with Jew-hatred and the terrible fruits of this preaching are being reaped in Europe, as well as against Israel. Esau soneh et Yaakov. Once again, the Jewish nation finds itself in dire straights as the world sits silently by and allows anti-semitism to take hold and grow.

We Jews are in between a rock and a hard place. As Yishmael plans to destroy our bodies, Esau deceives us into giving up our souls. The World Evangelical Alliance, "Israel's best friends", have restated their goal to convert the Jewish nation to Christianity. Coming from the city in which the Final Solution of 6 million Jews was orchestrated, the Berlin Declaration calls for the evangelization of the Jews of Europe. "Everyone needs to hear this message including the Jewish people. Proclamation to Israel was Jesus’ priority. It also reflects the apostles’ practice of going to the Jew first. Nothing has occurred since Jesus came that changes the need for Israel and the nations. "

It is astonishing that hundreds of years after the public disputation at the order of the Church in which Jews were threatened with expulsion, death or forced conversion, Jews are again called upon to defend the validity and integrity of their faith. The Jews of Europe, when not being beaten up by anti-semitic mobs, will be swamped with pamphlets and missionaries urging them to convert. The Berlin Declaration in essence says that Judaism has no value and offers no salvation. The Jew who follows authentic Judaism is worthless and is condemned to the fires of hell unless he becomes a Christian. Jews are forced to explain themselves to Christians and to stand up for their faith. Evangelicals claim to be motivate by love for the Jewish people but in reality, they only reject anti-semitism as a means to further their hold on the Jewish soul. Hardly no strings attached! A real love for the Jewish people would be accompanied by a respect for Judaism's validity and choseneness, and the recognition of the legitimacy of Jewish tradition and belief. To issue this declaration of apostasy from the Nazi capital in which Hitler's henchmen orchestrated and planned the annihilation of the Jewish people is the height of insensitivity and callousness. By teaching that Judaism is incomplete and misguided, Evangelicals offer a surefire recipe of hatred and mistrust for the Jewish people.

With barely 15 million Jews in the world today, growing anti-semitism in Europe and North America, an existential threat against the State of Israel, rampant assimilation in the United States and an obsessive drive by Evangelicals to convert Jews, the Jewish future is difficult. We are caught between those who wish to kill us physically, to rob us of life, and those who wish to destroy our unique spiritual heritage by baptizing us. Whether by gas chambers and pogroms or by missionizing and assimilation, the ultimate goal is the same: the eradication of the Jewish people from the face of the Earth. We must take heart G-d's promise in the Torah that the seed of Abraham shall never cease to be a nation. The end chapter has been written. All that remains for us to decide is how many of us will make it to the finish line. The Jewish nation will outlive all of its tormenters and oppressors, the assimilationists and peddlers of foreign faiths. G-d will surely vindicate His people.

The Jews who remain in Paris today are as tragically naive as the Jews of Germany were in the 1930's.

If there was any question of the "friendship" of the Notsrim, this declaration will hopefully provide the answer.

Any kindness by the worshipers of the dead one was only an attempt to weaken resolve against the theft of souls.

I spent a week in Paris on my way home from Israel and never have I felt so uncomfortable (with the exception of when I was in Poland). I had to take off my kippah and put my magen david in. Women completely veiled are very common. Arabic is heard everywhere. The writing is on the wall, unfortunately.

Ultimately, there are only two ways it can go, either the Kuffars implement a final solution to the Muslim problem, or the Muslims implement a final solution to the Kuffar problem.

It's a race against time as to which occurs first.

I'm sorry mr. Mcfry but it isn't a matter of "final solutions". Your terminology is offensive to Jews because of its Holocaust reference. Yes, we must fight and fight hard. But genocide and slaughter? No. We are better than that. (I know I hate when people use that phrase in regards to Jews, but in this case its true.)

I've heard a lot of unsavory things about the way Jews are treated in France and other places in Europe. It pains me anyway to think of all the persecution and discrimination that Jews have suffered through the centuries. Now as Islam runs rampant over Europe and the Europeans try to appease the Muslims, it looks like it's getting much worse again.

Jews in Britain have little to fear from the indigenous population, but the situation is different in Continental Europe.

However in Britain Jews are coming under increasing attack from Muslims , a situation which will probably also develop in the US as the Muslim population rises.

Jews would be perfectly safe from anti-Semitic attacks in the Anglosphere if the Muslims were kicked out.

It saddens me to see you compare Christians to nazis. Maybe I misread that, BK. I know that you respect Christians. And I've not been subject to any hostile witnessing like you probably have. The thing is, if I share my faith with you, and you reject it, I let the issue go. (There's no need to re-hash this, I know it's been discussed repeatedly.)

Zionism is fascism. I don't give a fuck about your 'faith'.

You are an enemey of the free world.

You will not rule over any gentiles.

You will lose. Christ gave you a chance - and you killed him. You turned away from God when you accepted the words of the scribes as your 'holiest' book - the Talmud(Satanic blasphemy) You were thrown out of the temple because your scribes thought stealing from gentiles was OK.

You are not even Jews - you are Satan's children. And you are going to fucking pay...
