A Sample of Brexit Literature

From "No Rape in Europe To See Here" Doug Saunders:

"Remember the Brexit as the moment when xenophobia won."

His pouty-pants piece makes me so happy, I can barely contain myself! 

There's some more intelligent, level-headed Jew prose right here though: 


"Examining Brexit through the bloody history of pan-European fascism renders leaving Europe – at least for me, – a matter of survival."

Obviously, I disagree with the author that "right wing" antisemitism is in any way, shape or form as much as an existential problem for Jews as is Muslim antisemitism, but this is still a very good article with historical context.

Dry Bones

Dry Bones. 

You know when there will be peace in the Middle East? Wake me up for the peace talks when Jews fleeing their countries do not have to exhume the bodies of their loved ones, for fear of the dead being disturbed. 

Another country: Judenrein. 

Last Jews out, shut the shul's lights.


Cool: Muslim and Christian Israeli Arabs Pledge Allegiance to the IDF

Note the IDF-issued Koran (a complicated topic that I am not going to get into now). 

Wake me for the peace talks when Muslim states offer Jewish army recruits a copy of the Tanach, thanks!

"When we swore allegiance to the state, I did it with all my heart," said the excited private."

"Pinch Me, I'm Dreaming."

It's Brexit time, baby. 

The Israeli Left Implodes, Leftists Baffled!

Ha. 

"...the Israeli left seems unable to absorb the fact that blaming Israelis for terror attacks, accusing them of “budding fascism,” painting their leaders as back-stabbers and engines of war, and trying to scare them with talk of “military cemeteries” is also no way to make a positive impression on them. One can wait years for the left to stop striking out blindly and viciously and instead try some introspection. It doesn’t happen."

Vaccinate Your Kids!

Good grief. 

Levin on Trump Speech: He Hit It Out of the Park

Yup. 

"Disturbed Man" Attacker of No Particular Name, Origin or Religion Opens Fire in German Cinema

Everything that happened in Israel to Jews, with precious little world sympathy is happening or is going to happen elsewhere in the (formerly) civilized world. 

Mark my words.

Israel was merely the testing ground.

It starts with the Jews, but never ends with the Jews. 

Meanwhile, details on this attack are scant:

"Police had not identified the man or established his motive, spokesman Bernd Hochstaedter said, adding that nothing immediately pointed to him having a militant background."

 

"How Anti-Semitism Became Respectable Again"

A warning from David P. Goldman: 

"Tripwires that once seemed taboo are being crossed every day."

My only quibble is that antisemitism never waned and never disappeared. 

The "old antisemitism" hasn't returned because it never went away.
