Jews under Siege

The future is bleak.
ROSER 1

This alone should have outrage world Jewry. Rage and fury should also bring out millions of Christians that identify with an ancient heritage that no EU diplomat dare overturn.

Earlier this year I wrote an article that appeared in the Jerusalem Post. It was entitled, “Palestinian flags flying over Jerusalem.” It detailed the significant real estate sites that will fall eventually fall into the hands of Hamas when outside misguided forces side with Palestinian bad intent. When writing that piece I never thought one such decisive step would be taken by Europe within such a few short months of publication.

The EU blunder has brought this terrible moment that bit closer. The Hebrew University, the Rockefeller Museum, Hadassah Hospital are, by definition of the new EU ruling, now prime targets for a European boycott. These shining institutes of Israeli brilliance are no longer considered Israeli by the European Union in kinship with the Arabs and Muslim world. Jews are seriously under siege at the heart of their heritage.

We are not just talking here about Israeli industry in disputed territories that will remain as part of Israel in any future peace agreement, industries that employ in excess of thirty thousand Palestinian workers in a display of mutual respect and cooperation, building a better future for both Jew and Arab. Surely that in itself is what true peacemakers should applaud? Instead, the European threat will put an end to such positive steps that have given so many Palestinians a better life. The European ultimatum also targets Israeli research, academic, and medical centers, that do so much good for mankind, and now lies at the foot of the European guillotine.

And the Europeans think this is in the best interest of people in the region. That have been oh so wrong it the past. They are dead wrong today!

Jews of Israel feel themselves under siege by Palestinian rejectionism and terror. Now add to that the new European compliance with an agenda that reduces the Jewish presence, salami- style, from their Jewish heartland, without any commitment on the Palestinian side to permanent peace. Europeans find nothing wrong with that, in their muddle-headed thinking that is openly biased against Israel but does nothing to force the Palestinian leadership into taking accepting and agreeing that Israel has a right to exist. Such a policy will result in failure and bloodshed. As we have seen in the recent past, such short-sighted, distorted, action always ends in Palestinian violence and Jewish deaths.

Due to European altruistic actions towards the Palestinian Arabs, Jews are under siege, under threat, and more isolated than ever. The future is bleak.

  1. Calm down and stop being so hysterical. Israel is a powerhouse in the Middle East and supported by the most powerful county the world has ever known. Jews in American have tremendous wealth and power in support of Israel. The Palestinians are fragmented and in disarray and unable to effectively combat the slow but steady stealing of their homeland by Israel. Europe is so guilt ridden about the holocaust that it cannot be effect in stopping Israeli aggression. So, Not to Worry.

  2. conflating a dozen issue to once again try and play the victim card.

    isn't that an Al Sharpton thing? Why would the Jewish Press need to?

    The Eurpoeans are just filling their cup of sin come judgment day- they just don't change- they hate Jews. Hashem protect us- He is all we have. It will all turn out okay- Hashem has promised! Our job is to get along with each other and be decent Jews.

    You have a cute dog, Judy. Or is that really you?

  7. Appeasing gentiles has never helped Jews and eventually hurts us. They’re not worth it.

  8. "Didn’t they force Israel to allow Arafat, the world’s first Islamic arch-terrorist, to return from his enforced exile in Tunis by acclaiming him as Israel’s peace partner?"
    WRONG!
    The entrance of Arafat in Gaza was a plot by the "smarts" Peres, Rabin et caterva… They wanted to construct a "Peace partner"… Peres and Rabin two stooges..

  9. they pork saucages.

  10. Please leave Europe, America and any other European Majority Nation. Why you do what normal people do when they aren't wanted somewhere and leave.

  11. Hey Jews, have you heard this one before: "stop whining"?

  12. I'm sure the tribes you have slaughtered and annihilated (see bible) would say same to you. and one names: DISRAELI and Lenin!

    I have been relentless in attempting to force the Holocaust Claims Conference to re-evaluate and change their methods. At least they are enacting these corrections. However, why shouldn’t the money they have in their possession be distributed immediately to Holocaust survivors? There are precious few survivors left and soon they will be gone. Only the youngest are still alive. My father Jacob, a survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, passed away 30 years ago. My mother, a survivor of Skarzish and Buchenwald, passed away 20 years ago.

    I ask every Holocaust survivor reading this to protest to the Claims Conference or their attorneys and ask what is happening with the funds. Twenty percent of these funds goes to birthright, Holocaust museums, writers etc.. Ask why individuals who are not really Holocaust survivors but were added to the list receiving funds.

    It is your money and you deserve it now. How is it possible for Holocaust survivors to be in need of food and medications when the Claims conference holds so much money?

    I am only one person. You must speak up now.
