Nicely stated piece here from Dan Hannan.
"Israel represents the most vivid vindication of the national principle
that humanity has witnessed. A people who were stateless for 2,000 nears
never lost their aspiration to nationhood: “Next year in Jerusalem.”
Then, extraordinarily — providentially, even — they fulfilled it. To a
Briton or an American, it’s a heartening story. But it strikes at the
Euro-integrationist's entire worldview."
"Israel’s story is by no means unblemished; but it is uplifting. It’s a
story of how freedom can take root in even the most unpromising
conditions. Such a story appeals to optimistic types, but repels the
envious, the eternally aggrieved, the gloomsters who see free markets as
some kind of racket — the same people, indeed, who tend also to be
anti-British and anti-American, whether they be Left Bank intellectuals
or Putinite nationalists or Bolivarian revolutionaries."
Hannan is much more charitable than I am toward Europe.
I believe it's a matter of plain, deep-seated Jew hatred.
The ultimate expression of that Jew-hatred, which is simply a very pure form of evil, death-loving nihilism, has resulted in the complete embrace of Palestinianism and the flooding of Europe with immigrants from non-democratic, Islamic countries.
So the pathological Jew hatred which led to the almost complete destruction of European Jewry, still exists and thrives, and now manifests itself in the European "anti-Israel" frenzy and in practical terms is directly related to the elite-engineered suicide of European culture.
Jew hatred is toxic stuff.
Anyone who thinks it's "just" about Jews is sadly mistaken.
