French-Jewish families are being forced from their homes in Paris suburbs as Europe continues to be convulsed by levels of anti-Semitism not seen since the end of the Second World War.
The Paris commuter newspaper 20 Minutesdocuments an “internal exodus” during 2017 of Jews from the Seine-Saint-Denis department, saying it is emblematic of broader concerns that French Jews, like their brothers and sisters across Europe, are finding it increasingly difficult to reconcile their faith with the changing demographics of the continent.
The paper reports that Jews are leaving their homes on the northeastern fringe of Paris to escape the open hostility that French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Sunday condemned as “well-rooted.” The newspaper reports:
This ‘internal exodus’ is difficult to quantify, but it is clear that many synagogues of Seine-Saint-Denis have closed, for lack of people. In Pierrefitte, the rabbi has recorded a 50 percent decline in the congregations since his arrival thirteen years ago. A similar story is told in (nearby) Bondy, where attendance on Yom Kippur (the holiest day of the Jewish calendar) has fallen from about 800 to 400 in the last decade.
The Bondy synagogue president saw a “deteriorating climate” of the last 15 years as driving the exodus, “It’s hard to explain, it’s provocations, it’s looks,” he lamented. “There are places where we do not feel welcome.”
Herman Loonstein, the lawyer for the Jewish restaurant attacked by a Muslim migrant, may be disbarred for revealing that the jihadi who smashed the restaurant was a Muslim migrant who fought with jihad terrorist groups. Worse still, Loonstein calls it incomprehensible that the Palestinian Muslim terrorist was set free.
So who is the Dutch government protecting, the Jews or the jihadis? It’s very clear. Crystal.
Incredible. But not surprising, as Europe descends into Islamic servitude. (Pamela Geller)

Because Islam gets criticized for many things — from hostility to modernity and democracy to calls for theocratic rule, radical “patriarchy,” misogyny, and draconian punishments, to name a few — it is helpful to step back and distinguish between those (many) doctrines that affect Muslim society alone, and those that extend to and affect Western or non-Muslim peoples in general. On doing this, three interrelated doctrines come into sharp focus. They are: 1) total disavowal from, and enmity for, “the infidel,” that is, constant spiritual or metaphysical hostility against the non-Muslim (in Arabic known as al-wala’ w’al bara, or “loyalty and enmity”); this naturally manifests itself as 2) jihad, that is, physical hostility against and — whenever and wherever possible — attempts to subjugate the non-Muslim); finally, successful jihads lead to 3) dhimmitude, the degrading position of conquered non-Muslims who refuse to forfeit their religious freedom by converting to the victor’s creed.
Bollards, loudspeakers and a political class that believes Islam has nothing to do with Islamic jihad. Are you feeling safe?

The picture comes with the warning: ‘O Jews and worshippers of the Cross. We swear to break your necks and shed your blood in Alaqsa front yard and everywhere else, this is the promise of Allah and we will make it come true. Beware. The coming will be the most terrible and bitter.’

King Abdullah II decries ‘dangerous’ US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital
Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Wednesday decried last week’s decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, warning the move would adversely affect peace and stability in the region.
“The U.S. move is really dangerous. We are sure it will affect both peace and stability,” the king said in an address delivered at Wednesday’s Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Istanbul.
In a stinging new op-ed, Hungarian government spokesman Zoltán Kovács has accused the European Parliament of surreptitiously removing all limits to the European migrant quota, effectively making it “limitless and permanent.”
The Hungarian Parliament roundly rejected the European Parliament’s decision, Kovács notes, saying that “the decision would change irreversibly the continent’s future.”
In his essay, Kovács harkens back to a 2015 proposal by the European Commission to resettle 40 thousand migrants among EU member states “in what would later become known as the infamous quota system.”
“That number quickly tripled, jumping to 120 thousand, but all the while, the proponents of this solution were insisting that it was just a one-time measure. Brussels is now pushing forward with a proposal for a permanent quota system with no upper limit,” the spokesman observes.

Why does Russell Simmons continue to shill for Islam, particularly in New York City? Of all places, Simmons and others will oppose hearings on “radicalizing Muslims” at the same location where a “radicalized” Muslim attempted to kill as many Americans as possible with a car bomb. That’s almost as ironic as Simmons ignorance on the Arab-Islamic enslavement of black Africans. Could it be Simmons large investment in the enormous Ground Zero victory mosque?

“EU officials announced they have begun court action against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic over their opposition to the bloc’s mandatory relocation scheme. The decision is likely to provoke a furious response from the leaders of the three states, which have all argued that the programme presents a security threat to their citizens.”
Security threat? What’s that? The EU doesn’t care about any security threat — except, of course, the one from the so-called “far-right,” i.e., those who want to preserve their nations and not have them become Islamic colonies and jihad bases. The EU court action here is an attempt to force Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic to commit suicide the way Germany, France, and Britain are doing. If it succeeds, it will be the end of Europe altogether. If it fails, a bastion of freedom may remain in Central Europe as Western Europe submits to sharia.
