Handing The Executioner His Sword: An Open Letter to European Jews Who Condemn Israel


“You see,” they now say, “even the Jews themselves agree with us!”

None of our enemies over the last two thousand years could have asked for more justification for their murderous plans than that which you have given Ahmadinejad and Al Qaeda.

After the loss of six million of your brothers and sisters in the lands you foolishly choose to live in, you have learned nothing.

Absolutely nothing.

Your blood is on your own heads.

If ever there was a Divine Message to leave the European Galut/Exile, it was delivered between 1939 and 1945.

Fools! The God of Israel has given you a place of refuge, and you do everything you can to undermine it.

In the lifetimes of many of you, you have seen Europe go from a Hitlerean Kristallnacht to synagogues in Berlin now requiring armed guards for the High Holidays.

You French Jews who signed the petition condemning Israel have suddenly forgotten that not so long ago your chief rabbi begged Orthodox Jewish youngsters not to wear their yarmulkes in the street. All around you, Islamic extremists fling Jewish products off the shelves of Parisian stores and throw rocks at Jewish schoolchildren.

One can almost see Herzl walking home at night from the Dreyfus trial with the words “Mort pour les Juife!” – “Death to the Jews!” – ringing in his ears.

Sleep peacefully, Jews of Paris and Berlin. Certainly the countries in which you reside – countries long marinated in murderous anti-Semitism – will provide protection for you the day the Islamic extremists overrun them.

Of course they will.

The lesson of the 1930s screams out to you: The great Revisionist Zionist leader Jabotinsky went from town to town in Europe proclaiming “Jews! My hair is gray with worry over you. You are sitting atop a volcano. Run for your lives!”

The Jews of Europe did not listen then, but they never tried to block their own escape route as you do now.

The economic instability of Europe glares from headlines around the world as rioters rock the streets of Greece while Spain shakes in its boots. It was just this kind of economic crisis that paved the way for Hitler. The Islamofascists living near you see this as their moment. With help from their oil-rich cousins in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere, they will offer economic “relief” to the financially strapped European countries to which they have migrated. There will, of course, be strings attached.

While you sign petitions condemning your fellows Jews in Israel, these thugs will be taking out contracts on your lives.

How dare you!

The world has not let up against us for two thousand years, and now you aid and abet the hand of the enemy by signing a document they can point to in order to justify sending homicide bombers into Israeli pizza shops to murder Jewish children in cold blood.

One day you will beg Israel to grant you refuge from a Europe whose message to you should have been clear seventy years ago. Who knows? Maybe the Haifa harbor will be blockaded once again. Maybe your refugee ships will be turned away as others were in the past.

You are disconnected from reality, and if you do not act now by standing up for your people, you are doomed. You have damaged Israel in the eyes of the world.

May Heaven have mercy on your souls.

In this particular case, the issue was whether the Arkansas prison system could prohibit, for security reasons, a devout Muslim’s maintaining a beard of a certain length as a matter of religious practice.

While we recognize the Republican Jewish Coalition is hardly a non-partisan outfit, a snippet from a statement the group released is worthy of note:

“These are good matzah balls,” my aunt Robertine would say, but her sister Irma would counter “No, not compared to Mama’s. They were always so light yet they never fell apart.”

Despite the 2005 Koby Mandell Act no Palestinian implicated in harming an American has been charged

The NY Times suggestion that HaMavesar cropping women from a photo is Israeli censorship is absurd.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters:

There is nothing more pitiful than a condemned man asking his executioner for the sword so that he may do his work for him.
