Having lived four years in Europe, I was fascinated and shocked to read this article in The Jerusalem Post has a fascinating article on the anti-semitic/pro-islamic atmosphere in the EU, and particularly in France:
It was in Paris 60 years ago that the Universal Declaration of human rights are threatened – more or less. In the words of René Samuel Cassin, recognized as its principal author, the declaration “is the most vigorous, most necessary protest of humanity against the atrocities and oppressions endured by millions of human beings through the ages.” Cassin, who refused to take his seat as a delegate to the League of Nations after publicly denouncing the Munich Agreement, maintained a lifelong association with the Alliance Israélite Universelle, under whose auspices he frequently visited Israel. was signed, on December 10, 1948. France has always claimed a special relationship with the declaration, affirmed as a defining national quality, carried as a banner whenever and wherever
Today in France, demonstrators equate the Star of David with the swastika, scream their hatred of Israel, burn its flag and chant promises of destruction. Schools that bear the name of René Cassin are vandalized. Cassin was a résistant, sentenced to death in absentia by the Vichy government. Where is the Resistance today? Is it the enraged crowd in keffiyehs, vowing allegiance to Hamas? Or courageous thinkers who dare to denounce the greatest totalitarian threat since Nazism and communism?
Freedom of expression is indeed challenged by Islamic fundamentalism. The universality of human rights is attacked at the UN. Anti-blasphemy legislation is pushed aggressively at all levels, both domestically and internationally. The expression of certain opinions has become life-threatening. But the FRA only has eyes for the rights of “visible minorities” and the values of “diversity.” The issue of Islamic thought control is, however, broached obliquely in a background paper entitled “Freedom of Expression and Hate Speech: some points for consideration.”
The fact that this was published in a newspaper sold in Eurpoe at all is monumental – even if it *IS* the Jerusalem Post. The article goes on to detail how one journalist has had to go into hiding in his own country to avoid death from Muslims.
And meanwhile, countries like Great Britian openly debate adopting Sharia — Islamic law. Why???— so we can roll over and play dead?
