European Culture

Culture is the man made environment. It consists of material culture, such a nail or the atomic bomb. Then there is behavioral culture, which refers to human conduct, such as greeting someone or speaking a language. Thirdly, there is ideological culture, which refers to our beliefs.

One of the most traditional and unalterable European beliefs is hatred of Jews. Indeed there were a few years from 1945 to 1967 when some Europeans did not attack Jews, because such conduct was somewhat unpopular in view of the disclosure that the Europeans had murdered 6 million Jews in every country the German armies had invaded. Yet today, when there are only 1.5 million Jews among 750 million Europeans, the hate goes on and on because it is as ingrained in European culture as speaking the native language.

From Sweden to Italy, from Ireland to the Ukraine, the European population rants anti-Jewish hate, although the number of Jews in Europe is so small that the vast majority of Europeans have never seen a Jew.

The reason for this conduct lies in Christianity, many of whose European followers keep using “christ killer” canards as catalysts for their continued wish to murder Jews not only as recreation but also as a means of making money by hopefully grabbing the homes, money, land and all possessions of Jews after killing them, just as was done seventy years ago. To this day, innumerable Europeans enjoy the property of Jews they murdered, even as they again scream in chorus on the streets of Berlin and Paris, London and Madrid about “Jewish swine,” etc.

Jews who continue to live in Europe are once more risking their lives, as they are reluctant to leave their native lands behind and move to Israel or the United States while they still can.

Meanwhile, American Jews are once more supporting the anti-Israel Democrats who, like Secretary of State John Kerry, claim that the ISIS terrorists are the fault of the Jews.

A Jew who votes for the Democrats votes for the destruction of Israel. This may never happen because this time the Jewish targets of genocide are able to defend themselves. It may even occur that the Democrats will lose the next election, so that we may all be saved from living in a police state the Democrats hope to establish here.

Jews need to remember who our friends really are when we vote on November 4th,

Shalom u’vracha.
