As Jews Go, So Goes Europe
by Joseph Puder
The latest target of Islamist terror was Denmark's Jewish community. Last Saturday night (2/14/2015), the Danish news media identified a Danish-born man of Palestinian-Arab origin, Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, as the man who shot and killed a Jewish man (Dan Uzan) outside Copenhagen's main synagogue.
It's apparent that the moratorium on anti-Semitism enacted in Europe immediately after the Holocaust is over. In fact, it has never been truly enforced. Europe has witnessed a consistent pattern of attacks on Jews and Jewish institutions, particularly in the last few years. Vociferous anti-Israel European media and European campuses have become the domain of Islamic and leftist anti-Semitic propagandists, in the guise of anti-Zionism. European governments that endlessly appease and pander to Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim sensibilities have created fertile grounds for Islamist terror to sprout. Attacks on Jews by native-born European Muslims of Arab background have been steadily growing. The hate Europe's Jews experience daily is reminiscent of the 1930's, but this time they will not wait for another Holocaust to happen. They are moving to Israel and North America, taking with them their education and talents that so richly contributed to European culture and economy.
