Muslim-Jewish Leadership Council (MJLC)

6809197623_c083cbba58_z

The newly-founded Muslim-Jewish Leadership Council, or MJLC, is the first European platform for Muslim leaders and Jewish religious authorities to proactively advocate the protection of religious freedom in Europe.

The Conference of European Rabbis, one of the first European organizations, was founded in 1956, to re-establish the European Jewish communities following the devastation of the Holocaust. The Conference’s mission is to strengthen the voice of the Rabbis of the Jewish Communities of Europe in transmitting the tradition of their fathers to the next generation of Jewish Europeans, in defending religious rights, and welcoming everyone who is interested in protecting and safeguarding the Jewish heritage of Europe.

Statement on the Refugee Crisis in Europe

On the day of the Council’s foundation, the Muslim-Jewish Leadership Council issued its first statement: The refugees entering Europe urgently need shelter and support. We commend the many private initiatives by individuals, religious communities and other groups that are actively providing refugees material and social support. For its part, the Muslim-Jewish Leadership Council will coordinate and mobilize resources within its networks to offer support for refugees in Europe. We urge European policy-makers to undertake every effort to ensure refugees’ safety.

    I figured it was new. Guarantee this is a Muslim initiative to enlist Jewish help to kick down the doors and grease the skids for the invading horde.

    Will Europe’s Jews go along with it?

    • I do not know what kind of Jews they are.

      • The foolish kind.

        short sighted, naive and dangerous.

        Probably stupid Jews.

      • Suicidal Jews.

    As P.T. Barnum said, there’s a humanitarian born every minute.

  • “The refugees entering Europe urgently need shelter and support.”

    Okay, fair enough. So set up a refugee camp — and set it up in the first country of safe refuge, which is usually Turkey, Greece, et al. The problem is, the people heading for Northern Europe are breaking the “first country” rule, which has been a long-standing international standard for refugees. And many of them are not in fact refugees from the war in Syria — they’re illegal immigrants or economic migrants from different places, some are obviously Jihadist infiltrators and others may be common criminals or fugitives from justice. Refugees don’t get to pick and chose where they will be as a final destination — you can make application to any country in the world you want to, but it’s up to the prospective host country whether or not they think you qualify. It’s called “Sovereignty”, and it’s one of the fundamental principals of the U.N. and its International Conventions.

    Also, nobody receives refugees “en masse” — each person must be processed individually, their identity and nationality established, and their personal history verified. Even with the mass migration of tens of thousands of Vietnamese boat people many years ago, every individual had to be processed.

    So in the interim set up refugee camps, and let’s stop the silliness. A lot of the phonies will immediately be weeded out, for example economic migrants with money and resources will simply go back to where they came from if faced with the prospect of having to play the waiting game in a refugee camp. And meanwhile the genuine will be amply fed, clothed, sheltered, and receive medical attention, in a safe place.

      What you say makes perfect sense but you might as well be barking at the moon.

      • I’ve worked in refugee camps before — they were run by the U.N. and the international Red Cross. And I brought three refugee families into Canada — I know the process well.

        Your observation about “barking at the moon” is personally poignant — this stuff keeps me awake at night. Politicians today are probably among the most ignorant, self-serving morons since the rise of “the Hitlers” and “the Stalins” of the previous generation. If we think politics was stupid back then, my honest feeling is that the current generation is going to far outshine the previous generation in hands-down idiocy.

        that was last night……

        • Millie_Woods

          Heh!

    • Few among Europe’s leaders have the guts or the guts and the power needed to act.

      Look at how we got screwed in the 1990’s when the bogus refugees from Somalia would hop their way across the earth to get a Plane flight to Canada and THEN become a refugee for our Welfare .
      There are STILL Somali’s on welfare in the Dixon road Welfare Alley where they settled , plus we are now seeing some of their mosques pumping out anti-Canada Jihadists that are in a video claiming they will kill us.

      We’re not suppose to talk about it, just as we had to ignore the jamaican drug gangs and welfare moms in Government housing in the Toronto area, plus the latest 15,000 Mexicans ( in 1 year) that came here as Tourists and made refugee claims for the welfare.
