According to the national press, incidents of anti-semitic hostility have become increasingly common across Europe. Members of Israeli football team Maccabi Haifa have been attacked by pitch invaders in Austria. Two Israeli tourists were among four people gunned down at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. Anti-Israeli and even anti-semitic slogans have been shouted in the streets of Germany, and a planned terror attack on a synagogue in that country has apparently been thwarted by the police. The Israeli ambassador has compared the situation to the events of 1938. France has for some time now experienced an exodus, as Jewish families move to either Israel or the United Kingdom in order to escape from persecution at the hands of pro-Palestinian Muslims.
Here in the United Kingdom the situation has not traditionally been particularly bad, but that is now changing. The Daily Mail reports:
A rabbi was attacked by four Muslim teenagers outside a Jewish boarding school in Gateshead …
In Belfast, bricks were thrown at the city’s only synagogue …
Groups of Asian men … drove through a Jewish area of Manchester, throwing missiles at passers-by.
I presume that readers of this site are for the most part racial nationalists. Some of them may be members of political parties, while others may prefer to go down the route of quiet preparation as envisaged by Western Spring. Either way, we need at some point to persuade the people of this country to support the cause of racial nationalism. Incidents of inter-ethnic hostility provide an opportunity for such persuasion.
The cause of the recent upsurge in hostility towards Jews is of course outrage at the bombardment of Gaza by Israel. I am aware that Hamas militants in Gaza are also bombarding Israel, but they cannot hope to match Israeli firepower.
When someone you know comments on anti-semitic activity in this country, it is reasonable to reply that some level of anti-semitism, while not to be condoned, is nevertheless unsurprising given the circumstances. Muslims in this country are likely to align themselves with Muslims in Gaza and condemn Israel for murdering hundreds of civilians. Of course a Jew living in Britain is not to blame for the actions of the Israeli government, but equally we must not be surprised when angry Muslims vent their frustrations on a locally available target.
If Britain were not in the EU, then Jews from France would not be able to come to Britain, and our Jewish population would be smaller, albeit only slightly smaller. If Britain had not endured a policy of open door immigration for many decades now, then we would not have three million Muslims living among us – or is it four million now?
When discussing this matter with someone who is not a patriot, then it makes sense to make them aware that this is the natural consequence of our immigration policy, and maybe he will acknowledge the point. However you might be unwise to try to take the conversation any further.
The important thing is that you do not want to come across as anti-semitic yourself, or at least I assume you don’t. Feel free to condemn Israel for the bombardment of Gaza, but try not to imply that all Jews are to blame.
While I tend to admire the tabloid columnist Peter Hitchens, I am surprised that he recently came out with the absurd comment that “Israel … is a place where Jews can go when other people want to kill them for being what they are, not for what they do, and when nobody else will take them in”.
Israel is a nation born out of the theft of land from Arabs, and which has expanded its frontiers by stealing more land from more Arabs. An important lesson from history is that Jews are often despised for what some Jews do. Hitler despised Jews because he objected to the behaviour of a clique of ultra-rich Jews, and many people today – notably Muslims – object to the terrorist activities of the Israeli government.
Whatever you personally think of the Israeli bombardment of Gaza, do not fall into the trap of thinking that your enemy’s enemy is necessarily your friend. Muslims in this country, whatever their attitude towards Israel, tend to be very selective in what they choose to protest about.
How many Muslims object to the ritual slaughter of farm animals? How many Muslims campaign against female genital mutilation or Muslim paedophile grooming? How many Muslims protest against the persecution of Christians in countries like Egypt or Iraq?
Finally, if your non-nationalist friend asks you what advice if any you have for frightened Jews in Europe, then reply with a question. Ask them whether or not the European Jews who are fleeing to Israel are going to support the murderous regime of politicians like Benjamin Netanyahu.
