Massive increase in anti-semitic attacks in Britanistan

The same thing is happening in France. We posted about it the other day.

Europe is returning to it's roots. But now, instead of having to do the dirty work, they have the help (their Muslim population) do it for them.

From the BBC:

Attacks on Jews in the UK reached record levels in 2009, according to figures compiled within the community.

The Community Security Trust (CST) said it had recorded 924 incidents over the year, 55% more than the previous high of 598 incidents in 2006.

The organisation, which monitors incidents against Jewish people and organisations, said the rise was linked to last year's Gaza conflict.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown described the figures as "deeply troubling".

In a statement issued through the CST, Gordon Brown said: "The increase in anti-Semitic incidents recorded by CST in the early part of last year is deeply troubling and I want to be unequivocal today.

"I am a proud friend of Israel and welcome a robust debate about how we ensure both a secure Israel and a viable Palestinian state existing side by side.

"The debate is welcome, but no strength of feeling can ever justify violent extremism or attacks and we will stand firm against all those who would use anti-Israeli feeling as an excuse or disguise for anti-Semitism and attacks on the Jewish community."

One incident included strips of bacon being placed on the door handles of a Leeds synagogue. On another occasion, a 12-year-old girl, the only Jew at her school, was surrounded by other pupils who chanted "death to Jews".

Shadow schools secretary Michael Gove said: "Every one in public life - politicians, media figures, academics and community leaders - has to recognise that this growth in anti-Semitism is a stain on our society.

"History tells us that whenever Jewish individuals feel less safe, society as a whole is becoming less free. We must learn the lessons of the past."

Yep, that's true. Anti-Semitism is a barometer of the relative sanity of a culture. The more anti-Semitism, the more the culture is slipping into a mentally ill state of chaos.

It's the Muslims 100% responsible. I have never known of anti-semetism from the indigenous Brits, unless you are going way back in history.

Britain took in waves of Jewish refugees in the 1930's, and there were jewish immigrants in the 1900's

"By 1882, 46,000 Jews lived in England and, by 1890, Jewish emancipation was complete in every walk of life. Since 1858, Parliament has never been without Jewish members." Wikipedia

Ray,
Britain played all kinds of games with Israel, making it almost impossible for the surviving Jews to settle there after the war.

Do you dispute that?

If so, I will get you references to articles on the subject.

I agree that the UK is, from what I can tell, the least anti-Semitic of European nations, but it is hardly lacking in culpability.

Yesterday, we ran an article hear which was critical of an American chain of stores called Target. What did Target do? They are selling a globe which does not list Israel, but instead names it Palestine. Their stated reason for doing so was they "didn't want to offend their customers." What they meant is they'd rather offend Jews than Muslims.

In my opinion, that is anti-Semitism. And, it is anti-Semitism that Britain allows Jew-hatred to be preached openly, and at the same time will prosecute or badger anyone who speaks badly of Muslims.

I recognize that much of this comes out of fear. But, it also comes out of the idea that it isn't necessary for the government to protect Jews.

Jews do not go around retaliating against Muslims. But, Muslims do all the time. That's why the attacks are up so high, as this article says.

What do you think would happen if Jews started attacking Muslims in the streets of Britain?

Britain was given an impossible mandate to run Palestine, better if we had just got out and let them kill each other, maybe the US could have done it better.

Then the Jews waged war on the British and killed a large number of our troops. Even then the population did not take it out on the Jews in Britain.

As for the Muslims, yes they should be stamped on but there are no political parties here - as in the US - that will stand upto the Muslims.

The British have woken upto the Islamist threat and should justice prevail labour will suffer at the election.
