Shlomo Papirblat of Haaretz is reporting that:
An insurance company has refused to renew the policy of a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels, claiming that the risk of doing so is too high, given the clear threat of anti-Semitic attacks.
This is the European reality as the world “negotiates” with a nation that has announced as a prime objective, the destruction of Israel.
Things may not be exactly the same, now, from the days when appeasement was considered prudent, even wise, and attacks on Jews were, more are less, routine. But neither are they all that different. Not when:
The refusal to insure the kindergarten comes less than a year after the terror attack at the Brussels Jewish Museum, in which a French jihadist opened fire at the museum entrance, killing four people including an Israeli couple. That attack in May 2014, followed by the January killings at the kosher supermarket in Paris, have prompted insurance companies to regard Jewish institutions as high risk.

‘Trojan horse’ school pupils fear for jobs
Imran Awan yesterday told an audience in Birmingham that the city’s Muslims had been left “feeling like a suspect community fearful for their children’s future”.
The Birmingham City University academic, who has published a study detailing the impact of the Trojan horse inquiry, quoted one child saying: “I’m really worried now, because if I apply for a job then someone is going to look at my CV and think he must be a terrorist because of how the media has portrayed this. . . A teacher at the one of the implicated schools told me: the biggest losers here are the poor children who are going to be labelled as extremists and terrorists.”
Who, given what is now easily discovered about the beliefs and attitudes of Muslims, and given too the observable behavior of Muslims toward non-Muslims all over the world, would employ a Muslim? What kind of worries, insecurities, should an employer, and should his other, non-Muslim, employees, be expected to endure?
