Anti-Semitism in Europe akin to 1930s: Jewish leader

A prominent Jewish figure urged the United States on Tuesday to beware surging anti-Semitism in Europe and warned that seven decades after World War II Jews on the continent are having to look over their shoulders once more.

World Jewish Congress (WJC) president Ronald Lauder told a congressional committee in Washington that the United States could not sit by quietly, with events such as the recent attack in France underlining the growing threat.

“Once again, like the 1930s, European Jews live in fear,” said Lauder, a billionaire businessman who inherited a fortune from his mother Estee Lauder’s cosmetics empire.

“The United States can and must speak loudly and clearly to condemn this evil for what it is – the radical Islamic hatred of Jews.”

    Obama won’t lift a finger, but why are there Jews living in Europe anyway?
    As was the case in the 1930’s, now is the time to relocate!

    • Hell Obama approves.

        Of course. You cannot sit in Reverend Wright’s church for all those years and not approve of anti-semitism.

    This era we are now living in will look black in future history books.
    Obama; I’ve tried to see from all sides as to what his motivation is/was and have to admit he is either criminally incompetent or a Manchurian Candidate with designs to destroy everything we value and love. He is leading us all into WW3 and, to say such a thing… is unbelievable, but I’m finding it hard to deny anymore.

      While I fully agree with your assessment of Obama, World War III ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. We are now in World War IV, with ISIS having so declared it on us and the ayatollah proclaiming “Death to America!” Obama is in deep denial.

        A rose by any other name would smell as sweet… or otherwise. WW4, it is.

  • The Jews of Europe are indeed endangered. The immediate threat is from the Muslims but the underlying support is from the Leftists.
