Dark Days in Europe

Earlier tonight Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff spoke at the Israel Security Summit, which was hosted by Rabbi Jonathan Hausman at the Ahavath Torah Congregation in Stoughton, Massachusetts, under the leadership of Tom Trento of The United West . Below is the prepared text of her speech.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Most of you have already heard of what is commonly called “the new anti-Semitism” in Europe. In the past ten years or so anti-Semitism has risen to a level not seen in Western Europe since the fall of the Third Reich. However, what you may not know is that the new Jew-hatred is expressed mainly by European Muslims — the “New Swedes”, the “New Germans”, the “New Austrians”, and so on. Those wonderful denizens of Modern Multicultural Europe.

It must be stated clearly: the rising anti-Semitism in Europe is ISLAMIC anti-Semitism. Dr. Andrew Bostom has chronicled this history of Islamic anti-Semitism, which is as old as Islam itself. Jew-hatred is sanctioned, and even mandated by the Koran and the sayings of Mohammed. There is no Muslim community in Europe, not even the most “mainstream”, that is not rife with Jew-hatred. Mein Kampf and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion are best-sellers among Muslims wherever it is legal to sell them, and where it is not, they are underground favorites in Islamic communities.

And Muslims in Europe have allied themselves with the Left. A few years ago, during anti-Israel demonstrations in Belgium, Socialist politicians marched alongside supporters of the Palestinians while the Muslim participants chanted: “Hamas! Hamas! Jews to the gas!”

The news media would have Jews be afraid of “right-wing” parties is Europe, which they often equate with “neo-fascism” or “neo-Nazism”. Nothing could be further from the truth: it is among the Socialists, who sold their souls to forge an alliance with Islam, where the expressions of Jew-hatred are the loudest and most frequent.

Yes, anti-Semitism exists among native Europeans. There’s no denying that. But true anti-Semites, those who are obsessed with Jew-hatred as a primary political motive, are few in number. Their political parties are generally considered a joke in most countries. They are marginal at best. They have no large following, and they do not win elections.

There are two exceptions, however. The two most significant Jew-hating parties are Jobbik in Hungary and Golden Dawn in Greece. The former was able to flourish in a former East Bloc country, where pre-war attitudes were preserved by communism like a fly in amber. The latter developed out of the despair and chaos of economic ruin in the most destitute country in Europe — much as the National Socialists did in Germany during the Great Depression.

The anti-jihad parties are frequently equated with Jobbik and Golden Dawn, but the two factions bear no resemblance to each other. Islam-critics appeal to a different a demographic. Anti-Semitic parties and groups eventually tend to form alliances of convenience with Muslims, due to their common interest in destroying Israel and exterminating Jews.

In contrast, the anti-jihad parties support Israel, promote civil liberties, and generally espouse a classical liberal philosophy. Examples include the PVV in the Netherlands, the Danish People’s Party, the Sweden Democrats, and the Lega Nord in Italy. What they all have in common is their opposition to Islamization and mass immigration.

The Flemish separatist party Vlaams Belang is widely demonized as being “neo-Nazi” or “neo-fascist”. Yet it is one of the only truly free-market parties in Europe, and it is the ONLY party that defended Jews on the floor of the Flemish parliament during the violent anti-Israel demonstrations in 2009. The smear against Vlaams Belang is one of the most unjust and outrageous media operations of the past twenty years — and, given the leftist sympathies of the mainstream media, that is really saying something.

The attempt to convert of anti-jihad parties into “right-wing extremists” was a deliberate operation, a false “narrative” created by the left and the mainstream media to demonize and marginalize Europeans who resist Islamization.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I stand here in support of Israel, and in solidarity with Jews everywhere. To paraphrase Douglas Murray:

All across Europe there is a new hatred in the air, but it is also the old one. The people on the streets of Paris, Berlin, London, Amsterdam and other cities across Europe include the descendants of some of those who fought against, fought for, allied or collaborated with the evil regime which spurred this hatred on last time. But most of the perpetrators are not those people. Most of them are of immigrant backgrounds. In Britain, these are mainly from the Indian sub-continent (predominantly Pakistan); in France and the Netherlands, they are from North Africa; in Germany and Austria, largely from Turkey.

Everyone in Europe can see this, but no one wants to identify it. We live in so much fear of being identified as “politically incorrect”. We are rightly disgusted by racism of any kind. And yet here we see — and nowhere more clearly than in Germany — the new racist nightmare for Europe. We thought we had gotten rid of anti-Semitism in Europe. We thought we had made it totally unacceptable. And yet here Europe has imported millions of people who fail in varying degrees to assimilate. Many of those people now look as if they have taken up the exact same hatred we all hoped we had left behind.

These are dark days in the Middle East. But they are darker days in Europe. Whether we deal with this renewed evil or not will be the challenge of this generation.

Let me say this clearly: I unconditionally support Israel’s right to exist. It is the only democracy in the Middle East, no matter what the Leftists on both sides of the Atlantic argue.

I also believe there is no meeting Hamas or Fatah halfway. Amos Oz, certainly not known for his conservative opinions, recently said: “Even a man of compromise cannot approach Hamas and say: ‘Maybe we meet halfway and Israel exists only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.’”

The truth is, we are all living in Israel. It’s just that some of us haven’t realized it yet.

I say it again, echoing Douglas Murray: We are all Israel.

  1. I became a noteworthy member of a political party which I supported with donations, articles and policy outlines, and a party that was conservative by constitution, but neutral whenever Israel was mentioned.

    After attempting to get the party hierarchy to reconsider the party stance, which they wholeheartedly rejected, I resigned last year in protest as my conscience would not allow me to be a fence sitter when it comes to Israel’s right to exist.

    I too fully support the nation of Israel.

    • Increasingly I find that any organisation that adopts a neutral stance on Israel is one that just doesn’t have the gumption to be openly anti-Israel and doesn’t want to antagonise Jewish donors.

      The Australian Labor Party, or its dominant rightish faction at least, used to be pro-Israel 25 years ago. The left faction has always been insane on the Israel issue. With the rise of the Muslim immigrant demographic in safe Labor seats, this has changed dramatically. Former Labor MP Leo McCleay of the rightish faction, whose seat is in a predominantly Arab-Muslim electoral district, and Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament went on record as saying about 18 years ago “I don’t know that Hamas has engaged in any terrorist activity lately”!

      The real problem is that 40% of private donated money to the Labor Party comes from Jewish donors. As with the Democratic Party in the USA, Jews overwhelmingly vote Labor out of historical liberal sentiment. If they pulled the plug on the donations or targeted their funding to only the opponents of Labor Party candidates who supported Israel things would improve.

      • Israel is in danger of being devoured alive by sheer number of rabbits breeding around them. Muhammad, whose ideas were derived from the devil, coded idea of having four slave females to use their wombs to conquer the world,a s is happening today. Every minute there are 1200 jihadis born in the craven continent also known as Europe.
        Europe is being conquered and enslaved.

        And the native people are fiddling in welcoming the NEW Jihadi muhhamads.

        What an advanced culture.

  2. One would have thought that after the 50,000,000 deaths that the previous muslims brought about would have well and truly tagged the mein koranimal as the most unstable least desireable creature any society would want to curse itself with.

    • Well, errrr, no, wyte anglo saxon protistints with their fony supriority complix ar undisirable beecos they didint shar there money wif us and uvver peepol, and fourt tha they wos beher than us…..

      But us well edjercated librals now that we is awl bourne eqwell….

    • The concept of human rights, I think appeared after World War II, after the tragedy of Jews, gypsies, Slavs and some Catholics.

      Today if Jews and gypsies in France or elsewhere are treated as during WWII, no one dare defend them. Because today by human rights is allotted exclusively to muslims and no one else.

      Koran helped muslims drive out or decimate the non-muslim population from Morocco to Spain to Australia. For them it is a good book. Koran helps muslims kill, murder, behead, impale heads . . . etc. without feeling guilty or post beheading trauma disorder at all. They actually feel better, improves their health, and psyche, and appetite for for everything.

      Just look at the muslims who live on infidel western welfare system: they are healthy, proof: thick scary bushy beards. Their necks are thick like those of a camel. One can fight 5 infidels.

      • “Koran helped muslims drive out or decimate the non-muslim population from Morocco to Spain to Australia”

        What are you on Murad? The muslim population of Australia is about 2% – they have hardly driven the rest of us out and we are certainly not “decimated”.

        • Are they really only 2%? They are causing so many problems and are such a drain on the economy–just imagine what it will be like when they are 5%, 10%, 20%.

  3. Every nation ought to be engaging in cross-cultural forums where the values of cultures are put under the microscope and compared for their merits. A nation which harbors groups holding views incompatible with its fundamental principles and way of life is asking for civil war. These free speech debates would expose the hidden agendas of the left and the anti-human rights agenda of Islam and most traditional cultures.

    • I’m not sure if I understand what you’re proposing.

      Not all traditional cultures have an anti-human rights agenda; some of them simply define their own responsibilities so that any “rights” are enfolded within the larger issue of what we owe one another.

      I don’t think the Amish are anti-human rights, nor are their cousins, the Mennonites. They just want to be left to express their lives through their own cultural practices.

      The Mennonites in the Shenandoah Valley have done pioneer work in mapping out and putting into practice a form of conflict resolution which has resulted in a smaller case load for the overworked court system.

      I had almost finished my practicuum in that course on Community Conflict Resolution when a fatigue so large it had its own zip code overwhelmed all my good intentions.

      If you live near a town where a community center offers the course, I urge you to consider signing up. *Anything* that could bring down the levels of suspicion and paranoia, which grow worse by the week. As things degrade, we’ll need all the rational, informed (and trained) heads we can find.

  4. This is exactly what western society does and has been doing more or less successfully for quite some time now – without civil war. Hopefully now that the verdict is in on the mosque dwellers intention to replace civilization with degeneration, a seriously realistic and intelligent rebalancing act is somewhere in the pipeline. God is Love. Allah and mo are hate.

  5. Let’s hold the ox by its horns: Democracy in the west is an abject failure.
    Western politicians are the most radicalized, excessive creatures on earth. We blamed Communist countries for isolating themselves and securing their borders. They did a good job for their future.

    Western radicalized, excessively treacherous stupid politicians are opening their borders for muslims with the radical stupid intention of turning us into zombie dhimmis and surrendering our contries to islamization and muhhamadans beheaders.

    All these atrocities and beheadings are going on and western politicians are so radicalized in the school of stupid niceties and ignorance that they whitewash these crimes. Only muslims can escape with impunity, since western politicians are so abjectly cowards when it comes to muslim behaviour.

    Democracy’s core ideas were that the elected zombie politicians make decisions that are in the best interest of the common people and the nation. Not against the people and the nation.

    We can see our nations invaded and destroyed by muslims and still the DARING LIARS/ politicians feel they don’t have enough invaders.

    If you say we have more than enough invaders you will be dragged to the courts. And you are guilty and never to be proven otherwise.
    Is that democracy or crap worse than any other system envisioned by human zombies.

    Reject democracy if the result is committing suicide through it.

  6. @murad

    Yes, it’s crap worse than any other system envisioned by human(s).

    (Except, perhaps, for the Areopagus that existed under the constitution of Cleisthenes)

    Once you wake up to the reality that what is commonly described as “democracy” should, more accurately be called “elective dictatorship” things tend to become crystal clear.

    The elective dictatorship system is ideal for competing groups of well organised political cultists (the party faithful) to gain control of the levers of power on the “election winner takes all” principle.

    Well organised political cults are very skilful in infiltrating organisations that influence public opinion. This includes control over education and indoctrination at school, university and bureaucracy level. Cultist control of news media, both written and TV and cultist control of that specialised branch of journalism undertaken by graduate historians.

    The use of lies of omission to provide an acceptable slant to any news or historical account is the preferred method because facts that do not fit in with the beliefs and doctrines of the political cult are unacceptable by definition.

    Political cults have no need to take the wishes of the people into account, especially if rival political cults (parties) have similar policies in matters such as immigration, to take but one important example.

    Leaders and members of cults lack the ability to reason outside the paradigm of the cult to which they owe their allegiance. Cultists of all kinds are no more able to use reason than the members of that pathetic Heaven’s Gate cult who, unlike the existing herd of political cultists who misrule every single elective dictatorship, at least had the good grace to destroy only themselves without harming others.

    How often have we observed the strange behaviour and destructive decisions made by politicians in the elective dictatorships and said to ourselves: “they must be insane”.

    Indeed, they are insane. The actions and statements made by Cultists might appear to be the outcome of stupidity to the non-cultist, but political cultists are literally insane.

    • This is an old – well, more than half a century old – end-term problem brought about by welfare state “democracies” – in the final analysis, those who draw welfare from the state for any other reason than severe disability – ought to recuse themselves from voting. In a lawful land, they would.

      Talmon called what you describe “totalitarian democracy”:



      He [Talmon] studied the genealogy of totalitarianism, arguing that political Messianism stemmed from the French Revolution, and stressed the similarities between Jacobinism and Stalinism. He coined the terms Totalitarian Democracy and Political Messianism.

      Lucky us – we have both. At least Norway, the country I first read this term applied to by writer Caroline Glick, doesn’t deal much with Messiahs, though it finds Scapegoats irresistible. The US seems to do TD and Messiahs. We want a savior to wave his wand and cure us all. Which is what we hoped to have in The Magic Negro. Who could ever have foreseen that his wand would be papier mache or that the seas would ignore his calming voice?
      When I first read about tot.dem I though it had originated with Ms. Glick so I didn’t look further. Then I ran across it once more, in Fred Siegel’s phenomenal work:

      The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class

      That book seems to be slowly penetrating the reading classes, with now 44 starred reviews and few -beyond the usual demented – complaints. Amazon picked this out to highlight from one of the buyers:

      I recommend this book to anyone who really wants to understand from where the left gets its systemic unearned moral superiority.

    • “The elective dictatorship system is ideal for competing groups of well organised political cultists (the party faithful) to gain control of the levers of power on the “election winner takes all” principle.”

      Some leftists spotted this almost a century ago. Their ideas are basically only studied by students of politics at university.

      Michels (1911) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Michels

      Burnham (1940) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Burnham#The_Managerial_Revolution

      So, those who are likely to become active in political parties/government get tutored in this reality. The rest of us are kept in the dark.

  7. She’s got it slightly wrong: it’s not in the Belgium that those socialist politicians participated in that demonstration, but in the Netherlands. The politicians were, if I’m not mistaken, politician Harry van Bommel and “political activist” Gretta Duisenberg.

  8. William Eaton, US Consul to Tunis, wrote about Muslims in 1799:
    “Considered as a nation, they are deplorably wretched,
    because they have no property in the soil to inspire an
    ambition to cultivate it. They are abject slaves to the
    despotism of their government, and they are humiliated
    by tyranny. They live in more solemn fear of the frowns
    of a bigot who has been dead and rotten for over a thousand
    years, than of the living despot whose frown would cost
    them their lives…The ignorance, superstitious tradition
    and civil and religious tyranny, which depress the human
    mind here, exclude improvement of every kind…”

  9. A open castle gate and a lowered drawbridge always allows the Huns to enter, sack the castle and kill everybody inside.

  10. In anwer to Spurwing Plover and the open castle gate, I really loathe the lazy knights who opened them and are allowing us to be overwhelmed. They never did give a damn about us huddled in the keep, did they?

  11. Funny how Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff doesnt notice the ethnic-religious group that is behind mass immigration and islamization in the first place…and i leave it there.

    • No, don’t “leave it there”.

      If you haven’t read how much ESW has been in the forefront of the push against the Islamization of her own country, then you’re not reading enough or your ignorance is deliberate. And I leave it there, boyo.

      • I know I’m a Bear of Little Brain, but I took Pete to be referring to the Joos; hope this was clear.

  12. The answer I imagine is to not huddle in the keep and to commence organized planning and preparation for the inevitable.
