Europe’s top rabbi calls for solidarity with Muslims

Jews and Muslims in Europe have a common cause in resisting attacks on minority religions and defending religious freedom, Europe’s top rabbi has said. Speaking on the eve of Passover, which begins on Monday, chief rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt warned that the rise of ultra-nationalist parties and damage to the European Union caused by Brexit threatened the security of Jewish and Muslim minorities.

None so blind…

    Does the rabbi pay the dhimmi tax? Just wanting to be friends with the muz tribe is insufficient.

    New meaning for Pinchas in Hebrew – JINO

    F***ing idiot.

  • DaninVan

    Geez; I wonder why the rise of “ultra-nationalist parties”?
    Must be Global Warming…

    “None so blind…” Pretty much says it all.

    I thought Jews were supposed to be smart.

      Trust me that is a myth. Certainly some are but there are plenty who aren’t. It is like the myth that all Jews are wealthy; it just isn’t so.

      It is a curious irony that Dennis Prager once commented on. He said, “”why don’t they preach what they practice?”” Jews are ultra conservative generally in their private lives. They are thrifty, believe in strong marriages, big on family values, helping friends and family. Yet in public life they push the most radical leftist causes which are totally against all those things.

      • Some are like that and some are not.

        The Bavarian Socialist Republic was established in 1919 in the civil war that swept Germany after their defeat in WW1. The instigator,
        Kurt Eisner and both it’s presidents Ernst Toller and Eugene Levine, were jews and half its leadership were jews. Communism from the very start was a Jewish thing. It can not be denied.

          Interestingly enough, Hitler was still in the Army and in Munich when this occurred in 1919. He was just a common soldier at the time but his nationalist sympathies were well known. His name made it onto a broad list of military members to be arrested by that coincil. He escaped arrest and hid out until the German Army regained conteol of Munich.

    The Reb is so simple minded he could be PM of Canada.

    I thought “Rabbi” was a term used for a learned scholar?

  • LairdKintyre

    That’s like some sheep call for solidarity with the wolves. Ironically they would get the unity they achieve just not the kind they were hoping for.

    Reminds me of the old rubric about generals always preparing to fight the last war instead of the next one.

  • TruthSerum

    You’d think this Rabbi would be more concerned with the escalating anti-Semitism, in Europe, and the numbers of Jews fleeing to Israel and the USA.


    This moron is embracing the ‘population’ causing the increased anti-Semitism and blaming the people who want to stop the Islamisation of their European countries.

  • vwVwwVwv

    there is no such thing as top rabbis but this 5 have definitely the same advisor as the pope.

  • A moron.

  • Maxsteele

    I am a Jew but this Rabbi is f*cking retarded. Has he heard of the genocide and mass expulsion of Jews in the Muslim world. Most Rabbi’s as with the Catholic church are left leaning and should not be listened to about politics what-so-ever.

    Jews like that make good trustees at concentration camps. They can open and close the oven doors for their fellow Jews.

    The #’s are hard to tease out but current estimates are that Russia is 4-15% Muslim with a fairly reliable number of 6-7%. The Moscow Greater Metro Area alone could be home to 2.5 million Muslims out of a population of 17.8 million or about 15%. There’s maybe 100,000 Jews in Moscow and another 40,000 in St Petersburg. When you’re that outnumbered you say all the nice things to the right people.

  • HalcyonDaze

    I wonder if this guy has ever heard of the Association of German National Jews because, what he doesn’t seem to realise is that when dealing with the devil you’re gonna lose no matter how hard you try to change the outcome.

  • JohnfromToronto

    And who are the people who practice this “covert anti-Semitism”? Could it be the Muslims and their allies on the left?

    Barbies are a Dime a Dozen. Just because a person earnes a Theological Degree alowing the Title Rabbi is no indication of their right to speak for anyone except themselves. They are not Leaders of any Society unless they are appointed/elected/assigned the position and then they only represent those who appointed them.

  • DaninVan

    The comment re “there is no such thing as top rabbis” is incorrect. Rabbi Goldschmidt is the current President of the Conference of European Rabbis. Not the equivalent of a Pope but certainly a CEO. He has also been the Chief Rabbi of Moscow since 1993
    Just guessing here but having spent his life in Moscow, he’s probably a disciple of ‘Go along to get along’.

  • Let me know how that turns out, Rabbi.

    “Hath not a Jew eyes?”
    Apparently not and I’m in agreement with Laura Rosen Cohen who berates ‘official Jews’ like A.Foxman or Pinchas Goldschmidt:

    “Shame on you, Abraham Foxman. Shame on you.

    These Jews are a danger to the Jewish people.”

    Stephen Pollard reported in the DT, reported in 2015 France attacks against Jews “have risen sevenfold since the 1990s…..almost of all these attacks have been carried out by Muslims.”

    ‘A Judenrein Europe’
    “Michel Houellebecq’s new novel Soumission, released the day of the Charlie Hebdo slaughter, in which the protagonist’s Jewish girlfriend Myriam decides it’s time to get the hell out of France and flee to Israel. And François says bleakly, “There is no Israel for me.”
