Another one for my "DUH" file.
But this article actually disturbs me in many ways.
The Jews quoted in this article know, on a certain level, that Jewish life in Europe is as dead as the Holocaust victims. Yet, they have some fantasy of 'doing work' there, or 'finishing certain tasks' or other such excuses for not leaving. That means that they are putting something ahead of life, and risking far too much in my opinion for the comforts of the familiar.
There are other Jewish communities that have learned this lesson far too late, and others still in denial. I'm thinking particularly of Venezuela right now, and of course, South Africa.
Taking antisemites to court is just a band aid 'solution', just like banning the burkha. It's a hell of a way to waste your life and you only get one life. It's kind of Jewish virtue signalling, a very misplaced notion of 'not going down without a fight'.
So even though he stays right now "to fight", he admits, with total clarity, what it's all really about:
“I’m not a prophet or a prince but there is no future for Jews in all of Western Europe. Not only because of the war in the Mediterranean basin but because anti-Semitism is part of the Koran. I don’t think there is a future for Jews in France. There will be a day when all of Israel will be gathered back in our country,” Baccouche says.
