Angela Merkel to fight anti-Semitism




06 September 2014.




Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday she would do everything she could to fight anti-Semitism in Germany, amid reports of attacks and a spike in anti-Israel sentiment since the Gaza conflict.

In her weekly podcast, Merkel said she was alarmed that Jewish institutions in Germany still needed police protection and called for a big turnout at a rally against anti-Semitism that she was planning to address in Berlin next weekend.

Authorities and media in Germany, ultra-sensitive about anti-Semitism because of the Holocaust, have criticised chants against Israel and Jews during rallies against Israel's conflict with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

In July, petrol bombs were thrown at a synagogue in the western town of Wuppertal and a man wearing a skullcap was beaten up on a street corner in Berlin.

"I will personally do everything I can - as will my entire government - to ensure that anti-Semitism doesn't have a chance in our country," said Merkel, without referring to specific incidents or mentioning any new policies.

She said there had been a revival of Jewish culture in the country since World War Two. "We're proud and pleased that it was possible for that to grow in recent years."

There were more than half a million Jews in Germany when the Nazis took power in 1933. That number fell to about 30,000 after the mass killings and emigrations, but the population has since grown to about 200,000.

Merkel said she hoped as many Germans would join her at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate on September 14 for the rally organised by the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

"Hopefully there will be as many people as possible there to show that everyone who lives here will be protected," Merkel said.

"We've got a lot of work ahead of us," Merkel added. "We can see that there is not a single Jewish institution here (in Germany) that doesn't have to have police protection ... That's something that very much concerns me."

Jewish schools, shops, buildings and synagogues are regularly guarded by armed police.

German anti-racist laws forbid incitement to racial hatred such as anti-Semitic slogans, and outlaw propagation of the racist beliefs of the Nazis, whose emblems are also illegal.

It does seem superfluous to say Zs control at least half of Europe.

What they are worried about is Putin reviving Eastern Orthodoxy in Russia and the centrality of the dollar in international finance, which they control.

Thanks for your uploads.  But we can all read newspapers ourselves.

What we want here is YOUR opinion.

Try writing a comment instead of regurgitating what newspapers say.

Try it.

I'm sure, unlike some trail-park white trash here, you're good at it.

His response will either "stop the petrodollar tyrany" or "do you believe the official 911 news".

The guy is gone.

Well, they insulted Allah first.

Not just once, but many times.

What kind of all mighty God needs his servants to kill the people who might have insulted him?

I am a Christian and I have to deal with cartoons and sketches about Jesus Christ a lot.
You know, if you are feeling insulted by the opinion just a sign that your belief is too weak.

And if you are walking out and killing people because you felt insulted than you are also misuing your religion. It is a sign that not just your belief was weak but your mind as well.

Charlie Hebdo Terrorism




11 January 2015.




1.5 million people, including over 50 world leaders, thronged central Paris Sunday afternoon in a massive and historic show of support against Islamic terrorism.

France has failed to stand sufficiently firm in the face of Islamic terrorism, and this is now going to change.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, attending the rally, announced that the four Jewish victims of the attack on the kosher market on Friday would be buried in Israel.

If their god felt insulted, wouldn't he do something about it? Maybe a plague of locusts or all their first born kids being slaughtered but no, nothing happened so maybe he actually enjoyed being lampooned?
