OPINION
Bochum is everywhere
The Jewish Community advises their members to not wear Jewish symbols. The reason: they are being threatened by muslim Migrants

December 14., 2017 – by Philipp Peyman Engel

Not long ago, there was a report in a local Bochum radio station that went widely unnoted, but it was an alarming signal. According to the report, the Jewish Community Bochum advises their members from now on, to not wear kippah or other Jewish symbols in public. The reason: there have been repeated attacks in the past, when community members were identifiable as Jews on the street. Particularly Turkish and Arab migrants are responsible for the attacks, the community announces.

Reality in other German cities is not different from Bochum. In Berlin, it has long been daily life for Jews, from Neukölln over Kreuzberg to Wedding, to not wear Jewish symbols in public. The same can be heard from many Jewish communities, from Kiel to Konstanz. For non-Jewish Germans the antisemitic excesses of muslim Migrants might come as a surprise. For the Jewish community, they are part of life.

CLARITY. It is all the more important to point out in all clarity and without prohibitions of speech: the muslim community has got an enormous problem with antisemitism in their own ranks. The hatred for Israel, the abhorrence of everything Jewish, is not seen as anything offensive by many Arabs and Turks in Germany. But when it goes unpunished that the antisemitic mob in Berlin desecrate Israel flags in front of everyone’s eyes, and cheers the massacre of a Jewish tribe that Mohammed’s army once committed, then this is highly dangerous.

Contrary to what has happened, the police should intervene immediately and with all toughness. The only answer should be: a strong rule of law, consequent intervention, a clear naming of the problem, and more than just trite »Never again!«-phrases.

When politicians like Sigmar Gabriel demand »zero tolerance« in their Sunday speeches towards such excesses, but on all other days of the week, tolerate the hate, then something is going very wrong. In Bochum, Berlin and in many other German cities, where aggressive Muslims try to make Jewish life impossible.

    • It has come full circle in germany.

      While it may seem so, there are several, unapparent, factors at work that merit closer examination. Please consider reviewing my “Notes from NorseRadish” that will appear in this site’s next, “Reader’s links”.

      I sincerely welcome your insights, criticisms, or comments.

  1. Given the level of Jew Hatred in all European nations it is time for all Jews in Europe to move to Israel or any other nation that will give them shelter. Those who refuse to leave are helping clense the gene pool of those who refuse to live in the real world.

    • If memory serves this seems to hold true throughout all of European History. The nations that chase out their Jews stagnate for many decades.

      Another way to look at what is going on is as Yucki says a culling of the herd, the people who are incapable of living in the real world and learning the lessons of history are destroyed and the average intelligence of the human race goes up a fraction of a point.
