Hezbollah supporters march undisturbed in Europe's cities.
The third largest ciity in Spain, Valencia, has just voted for a boycott of the products of the State of Israel and the leader of the third largest Spanish party has defined the Jewish State as a “criminal and illegal country”. This is Pablo Iglesias Turrión, leader of Podemos, who received funds from Iran, a country which proclaims its willingness to “eradicate” Israel from the map.
Shortly before that, Valencia defined itself as an “area free from Israeli apartheid”.
In Italy there are the famous and grotesque “denucleared municipalities”, these are towns and villages which proudly proclaim their opposition to nuclear energy. Now in Europe you have cities aspiring to be “de-Israelized”.
There is much to be worried about these days. In London, thousands of people - even families with children – just took to the streets with Hezbollah flags, throwing about slogans against Jews and Israel, hymns to jihad.
Once upon a time, London was the symbol of freedom for those on the mainland in Europe who saw in it order and peaceability. Today that London is gone. There is an AK47 machine gun on a yellow background, the words “Allah” and “resistance.” The British authorities again refused to forbidden these pro-Jihadist marches.
A few days earlier, in Germany, 1,600 people walked under the flags of Hezbollah to demand the destruction of Israel and the Jews. Many of the protesters were supporters and members of the Lebanese terror group, which Germany refuses to outlaw. The authorities surrendered to these anti-Semitic Islamic fundamentalists.
In the same city - a cradle of Europe's culture - the fanatical supporters of those who wield the remains of Jewish soldiers in Lebanon (Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev) are free to march and shout slogans, while the Jews are no longer free to walk wearing the kippah.
Once again as in the 30's, anti-Semitism and Judenhass signal the chaos of Europe's debasing civilization from within.
