It is difficult to find the appropriate words to express the nausea that European countries transmit, as they allow antisemitism to spread like a cancer in metastasis.
Two years ago, Kobili Traoré threw his neighbour, theJewish teacher Sarah Halimi, out of the window in the 11th arrondissement of Paris after shouting “Allahu Akbar”. This week, the French judges dropped all the charges against him, because Traoré had smoked cannabis that night. It is difficult to find the appropriate words to express the nausea that France transmits, like a piece of Europe in metastasis.
Jews are not safe in France. What other proof do you need?
A few hours beforehand, in Chicago university students lay prostrate on the ground to protest against Israel's operation in Gaza. And the first name read was that of Abu al-Atta, the military leader of the Islamic Jihad eliminated in the Israeli raid and responsible for many terrorist attacks and deaths. “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be liberated” they sing, like Hamas and Hezbollah.
A few hours before that, in London pro-Palestinian protesters shouted to the Jews: “Dogs, bastards, Zionists, you will die”.
Multiculturalism harms the health of a country.
Then a British politician attacked Jews. That is not a novelty, there are now hundreds of them and Labor is led by an anti-Semite, Jeremy Corbyn. We should be more impressed by the fact that the Liberal Democrats accepted that Waheed Rafiq run in the elections. Look at his Salafite beard and you will get a glimpse of a great future for the UK.
For those in Chicago as in Paris and London with eyes and ears and a bit of a head on their shoulders, it should be very clear by now: You stand with Israel, the Jews and against Islamic fundamentalism or you side with these enemies of the civilization that the West nurtured inside its - now rotten and decadent - democracies.
