German Jews Fear What Influx of Migrants Can Mean

The Syrians have braved perilous journeys by inflatable raft through the waters between Turkey and Greece, marched for miles on sunbaked roads en route to Athens, circumvented Hungary’s harsh border controls and passed through Macedonia, Serbia and Austria to find their way onto trains bound for Germany.

“I had five years of civil war in Syria, but the journey here was more dangerous,” said Hadiya Suleiman, a 45-year-old mother of five from Deir ez-Zur in eastern Syria, where ISIS killed her 18-year-old son. “Here, I feel for the first time like a human being. We thank our mother, ‘Mama Merkel.’”

But many Jews are watching the wave of migrants flocking to Germany with some measure of alarm, concerned with what a massive influx of Arabs could mean for Germany’s Jews and the country’s relationship with Israel.

“This is not yet France, this is not yet London,” said one Israeli who has lived in Berlin for about 10 years and asked not to be identified. “Yet,” he added pointedly. …

But many Jews here believe that Germany’s atonement for its past is coming at Jewish expense. They’re worried that the influx of hundreds of thousands of Muslims will turn Germany into a place hostile to Jewish concerns and to Israel – and that along with the migrants there are terrorist infiltrators who will try to realize their dreams of jihad on German soil.

The article often vacillates between the above perspective and the perceived plight of the migrants.

Experience has shown how this situation could unfold.

    How are they shocked, this is the kind of thing that happens when you guilt trip a people for generations.. Self-loathing breeds weakness and bizarre, self destructive behavior.

    White liberals are a prime example of that.

      Just so I understand, who’s guilt-tripping whom?

      • Shebel

        Me also–I wonder.

        The holocaust has been used as a tool much like slavery has been used
        as a weapon to silence opponents.

        Average joe Jews don’t do it, but people who stand to gain from it have done so for decades.

        Like racism, there is indeed a “Holocaust industry”.. there are plenty of Jewish versions of Al Sharpton in the world.

        • Shebel

          That is what I thought you meant.
          So whom will be the scapegoat this time ?

          • lolwut?

            The anti-semite card won’t work with me.

          • Shebel

            Me neither.

          • lolwut?

            If Europe, the USA and Canada fall… Israel is next on the chopping block.. if not sooner.

            Nukes and big walls won’t save them from a death cult
            and then of course the Jewish nutjobs who welcome the apocalypse
            will be more then happy to assist them.

          • Shebel

            I am gonna go out back and saw some wood for winter fuel and toss the ball to my dawg.
            I don’t feel that God has Armageddon in mind.

          • lolwut?

            Ya well, the real world might..

            God won’t lift a hand to save you when the barbarians come crashing through your door,. a gun however will be there for you. the only faith you need is that the bullet strikes vital organs.,

          As for the Holocaust industry — yes, I agree there is one now, however the German guilt trip started before the industry became apparent. I met Germans in the early 60s who continuously beat themselves over the head with a big, fat stick and I had a German-born prof in the early 70s who did the same thing. It was only later, that I became aware of a Jewish-led Holocaust industry (or maybe I was asleep up until then?).

          I had been made aware of a job opening as director of the first Jewish festival in Toronto, so I applied for the job. One of my interlocutors was Sabina Citron (she of Ernst Zundl fame). When I said I thought it was a terrific opportunity to educate the public as to what really happened — i.e. the murder of 13 million (not just the Jewish 6), Sabina pounded the table with her arm — the one with the numbers on it — and screamed at me “The Holocaust is ours”. Needless to say, I did not get the job.

            At the end of the day, the guilt trip needs to stop and differences set aside to focus on a common enemy.

            Islam will not stop, it’s adherents are not afraid of death, it will happily
            use it’s own children as cannon fodder.

            If all the Jews of the world are forced to flee to Israel you can sure as hell believe that ALL the worlds Muslims will head in that direction
            to wipe them out once and for all.

            People like Citron I kind of forgive, the holocaust or any kind of major abuse is not something you come out from the other side from with all your marbles intact.

            I live in an area full of the people who are the victims of nasty sexual and physical abuse. I know the mindset.

            I’ve seen my share of bodies and the conditions they were living in.
            and several suicides as a result of the pain rolling around in their heads.

    “Here, I feel for the first time like a human being.”

    Muslims sure do appear to have latched on to the term ‘Human Being’ when describing themselves. Telling us that they are ‘Peaceful ‘ when they act like a bunch of rampaging animals is now backed up by the assertion that the are also ‘Human Beings’.

    Most normal people don’t have to keep reiterating the fact that they are Peaceful and Human .

    I forget who said ‘history doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes’.

    The door to Israel is wide open for Germany’s Jews, and they will be as warmly welcomed as they were 80 years ago. Those German immigrants gave Israel its Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bauhaus architecture of central Tel Aviv, and Maccabee Beer, as well as expanding the personnel of hospitals, universities and scientific think tanks.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Oh it’s the end of Jewish life in Europe. Everyone knows that.

    • Shebel

      And the beginning of Islamic rule. OR

      Maybe people will finally figure out that the Jews were Not all that bad—
      and help expand the Jewish Homeland until it encompasses the whole Mid East.

      • Hard Little Machine

        No. Their hatred of Jews is eternal. They’d happily go extinct if it meant the death of one Jew. Europe has proven this over and over again.

        • Shebel

          No. YOU are wrong.
          However, if you keep accusing and condemning people of the same thing over and over and over again—-

          They might just start to agree with you.

          • Hard Little Machine

            I don’t cause Jew hate, I expose it.
