Obama: 'No Jews to see here'
President Obama may have sent his spokespeople to walk back
his (and their
) earlier comments about the murders of four Jews in a Paris Kosher supermarket being 'random
,' but Mark Steyn isn't buying the walkbac
k and neither should you.
For over a decade, I have been writing about the metastasizing
Jew-hate in Europe, and I have noted, aside from the physical attacks,
the casual acceptance of anti-Jewish slurs at the highest levels in
Continental society. But I find, say, the Holocaust gags favored by
Gretta Duiseberg, the wife of the then head of the European Central
Bank, far less disturbing than the absurd pretzel-twist logic deployed
by the Obama Administration to deny reality. It is creepy and profoundly
unsettling. Like Simon Peter denying the condemned King of the Jews,
the most powerful government in the western world thrice denied those
four dead Jews in that Paris supermarket.
Here is a typical day in 21st-century Europe:
German court rules firebombing of synagogue is a "protest".
Jewish social life in Europe now takes place behind razor-wire and
security guards, and newspapers placidly report polls showing that 58
per cent of British Jews believe Jews have no future in Europe. It is
utterly disgraceful that the government of one of the few western
nations relatively untouched by the new mass Jew-hate should devote so
much energy to insisting that there's nothing to see here.
Belgian teacher tells Jewish student: 'we should put you all on freight wagons'.
European Jewish population continues to plummet.
British Vicar blames JOOOOOOOS for 9/11...
Anti-Jewish attacks in UK at highest levels ever recorded...
Teacher quits French school citing antisemitism.
But lies beget lies. The Obama Administration insists that the
Islamic State is not Islamic, Islamic terrorism is nothing to do with
Islam, there's no Islam to see here, no way, no how. You can't hold the
line at one lie, and tell the truth on everything else. The lie on Islam
infects everything else. If they're just "violent extremists" in
general, they have to be violent and extremist in general - or
"randomly", as the President would say.
I'm a free-speech absolutist and therefore have a high tolerance for "hate". But that's why free speech is important
- so one can address these subjects honestly. Islam is an incubator of
Jew-hate. It's unfortunate, but it is a fact. For example, Jordan is a
"moderate" Muslim country. What does "moderate" actually mean in this
context? Well, it means the Hashemites send their princes to Sandhurst
and marry them off to hotties. But other than that? Ninety-seven per
cent of Jordanians have an "unfavorable" opinion of Jews.
