Where Jews live well and thrive, civility and liberty thrive.
Lights out, Belgium.
“It is a painful thing. I am a real Belgian – my country, my culture and my friends are here,” said Mrs Dan. She plans to take her daughter, Brigitte, and grandson, Daniel, to join her son in Tel Aviv."
“My daughter never, never, never thought to leave. Now, she says of her little boy, what is his future here? We don’t feel safe.”
"Community leaders now speak with alarm of a rising tide of anti-Semitism in a country that has been home to Jews since Roman times, and who number just 45,000 out of a population of 11 million. Some claim the hostility emanates almost exclusively from young men of Arabic descent."
Vignettes from the disgusting, Jew-hating land of Eurabia:
"Rabbi Avi Tawil, the director of the European Jewish Community Centre, recalls how, shortly after moving to Brussels 10 years ago, an admiring stranger asked the age of his baby son in his pram."
“Allah willing, he will be dead soon,” the man remarked."
"He reveals he is regularly sworn at and threatened when walking with his four children, and he has withdrawn his daughters from a swimming club following a threat to kidnap them."
Now read this next paragraph very slowly.
See if you can the implications of every sentence, and what it says about the state of affairs in Europe."“I grew up in Argentina and experienced some anti-Semitism, but compared to what my children go through in Europe in 2015, it is incomparable,” he said, speaking from his office in an unmarked building near the European Council’s headquarters, guarded since the Charlie Hebdo massacre by Belgian infantrymen."
He grew up in Argentina-a place not safe for Jews not just because of the Nazis that were imported there from Germany after WW2 and sheltered there, but because of the massive influx of Hizballah-supporting terrorists and Iranian agents among other Muslim populations emigrating to South America.
"What my children go through in Europe in 2015."
Then: "speaking from his office in an unmarked building", "guarded since the Charlie Hedbo massacre by Belgian infantrymen".
That single paragraph has all the ingredients, all the foreshadowing necessary to say to Jews in Europe: get out alive while you still can.
If, as a Jew, you cannot send your children to swimming lessons, if you are told that hopefully your children will be dead, if you cannot read a Jewish publication in public, if you cannot wear a yarmulke in public, if you can not attend synagogue, if you must be guarded by armed soldiers only to work in an unmarked building because you are a Jew, it's time to leave.
“I used to think, they hated you, they wanted to kill you, why didn’t you just run away. But of course no one could have imagined what was to follow.”
