Rabbi Meir Lau, Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv and Holocaust Survivor, attacked the Germans today with harsh words. Rabbi Lau said, “We don’t need their permission to live as Jews,” and added that, “I didn’t see such German sensitivity to Jewish blood during the Shoah.”

“It’s amazing, German spokesmen are sensitive to the cries of a baby and a drop of spilled blood like I did not see in my childhood. Then, Jewish children’s blood was worthless and trampled on by the boots of the Gestapo, while tens of millions of Germans collaberated or stood by and watched.”

Rabbi Lau continued to say that Jews don’t have anything to look for in Germany, but that we must fight this anti-Semitic law.

Rabbi Lau also attacked the idea, proposed by Rabbi Metzger, that German doctors would teach or certify Jewish Mohels on how to perform Brit Mila, he added that Rabbi David Goldberg, who was just arrested, has performed over 3000 successful circumcisions.

  1. Harry Abram says:

    Jews have no business living in Germany!

  2. Gil Gilman says:

    The same anti-semitism exists everywhere in Europe. And a great portion of racists have a vested interest in their hate, much like a drug addict, even when their brain tells them that the urge is moronic, their guts still want the drug.

  3. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Why do they continue to live there?

  4. Marsha Roth says:

    In regard to your questions about living in Germany. Rabbi Lau said, “We don’t need their permission to live as Jews,”
    I personally would not choose to live in Germany, however, Jews have a right to live anywhere they choose. I'm sure some people ask why Jews don't give up Israel. It would create peace in the Middle East. Because we were promised a Home State, Israel, & we have a right to be Jews anywhere in the world.

  5. Anya Khan says:

    Germans care nothing about Jewish children, The children of nazis still hate Jews.

  6. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Yes, we have the right to live anywhere; but why should Jews have to struggle to maintain tradition?? If you were living in a neighborhood that was making it hell for you and your children, would you continue to live there??

  7. Israel may be the only place on earth where you don't need permission to live as Jews. It seems that the vile spirit of anti-Semitism is taking over again.Be alert and be watching you might have to move out. After the Holocaust who would want to live there again? Does history repeat itself? I wouldn't take a chance.

  8. This is clearly anti semitism! The B'rith milah is the foundation of the Jewish people, it's an everlasting bond between Hashem and The people of Israel.
    They can't attack us openly, so it's been done in a subtile manner.
    One day they will attack our right to live in the Land of Israel……

  9. That's just it, they may have some business living there. It may not make sense to you and me, but it makes sense somewhere in the great scheme of things. If only to make bris and bring out the worst in the Germans to remind the world of exactly who and what they are … 60 years on, Germany is almost looking like a regular, democratic European country, it's good to be reminded of what they were and did in the 1930's.

  10. Habibul Alam says:

    The three monotheistic religions have addressed mankind, bringing almost the same message, with a few reservations that are particularly related to rituals. That God is one and man should adore only one God, the Omnipotent and Omniscient, are common to all the three religions. The Day of Judgment is another common feature. Protection of human life and of the right of possession, sharing one’s riches with the poor, seeking peace and justice, praise of God on every occasion, giving thanks to God and praying are some other points shared by these three religions.

  11. Rabbi Lau once again cuts through the hypocrisy and places the blame on the guilty. Antisemitism is endemic to the world, it will only cease to exist when Moshiach comes.
