France or Sweden will be the first Islamic states in Europe, but the UK yesterday really caught up magnificently with it's Arabic Tweet from 10 Downing and the announcement of the new sharia finance bond.
Anyway-back to France:
"A few years ago, anti-Semitism in France was still hiding behind the
mask of "anti-Zionism" and hostility to Israel. It is still true, but
more often now, the targets are the Jews themselves, and the mask of
"anti-Zionism" has fallen away."
"In a recently published book, Demonizing Israel and the Jews,
Manfred Gerstenfeld explains that what happens in France is happening
all over Europe. "Polls show," he wrote," that well over 100 million
Europeans embrace a satanic view of the State of Israel (...) This
current widespread...view is obviously a new mutation of the diabolical
beliefs about Jews which many held in the Middle Ages, and those more
recently promoted by the Nazis and their allies."
"Seven decades after Auschwitz, the oldest hatred is slowly regaining its place on the continent, and it is no laughing matter."
Actually, I don't think the 'oldest hatred' ever went away.
Despite the blood-soaked earth, Europeans remained very angry at Jews, and most Europeans were happy that the Jews were gone and were happy to confiscate Jewish lands, property and businesses. And they will never forgive Jews for the Holocaust, either.
Yet, all that constant anger, all that jealousy and rage has to be directed somewhere. It will never be directed internally, or at the "neo-Nazis" of Europe (i.e the raging Jew-hating Magrebians).
So, it remains directed at Jews and Israel.
And it will forever.
