Footballer Nicolas Anelka is facing a police investigation after he celebrated a goal with a ‘reverse Nazi salute’. The European Jewish Congress called for him to receive the same punishment that would be handed down for a Nazi salute, while a senior French politician said the gesture was ‘clearly anti-Semitic’. Meanwhile, the 34-year-old West Bromwich Albion striker claimed he performed the gesture as a ‘special dedication’ for his comedian friend Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, who invented it, and who has been fined several times for defaming Jews. May I offer a word of advice? Grow a thicker skin and don’t be so easily offended. By rising to the bait you could be showing emotional immaturity!
Due in part to mass immigration, the ethnic groups that now make up Western civilisation are many and diverse, and each group has their own unique customs and traditions, and apparently we are all easily offended. You can’t show someone the soles of your feet, or turn your back on someone else. It strikes me you can’t even take your hand out of your pocket these days without seeming to offend someone. Why the most innocuous gesture may be deemed offensive! You know of course we’re doing exactly what all our governments want us to do…squabble amongst ourselves, leaving our elected officials to screw us ‘right & royally’ at every turn! Perhaps we should all return to our lands of origin? Do please get over yourselves!
Holiday songs on the streets in Sonoma (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Why only last week, Romanian state-owned TV channel TVR3 aired songs by a choir who sang anti-Semitic ‘Christmas carols’ which celebrate the burning of Jews. The lyrics glorified the Holocaust and called for Jewish people to be burned in the chimney. In a statement, TVR said they were not responsible for the songs performed by the choir, insisting a selection was chosen by a local Cluj culture committee. Some culture? And these are the kind of people we have welcomed into the European Union? Meanwhile, Britain has one of the largest Jewish populations in Europe. I look forward to personally welcoming the Romanian peasant hoards into England in early January 2014. Talk is cheap my friends…try burning me!
Meanwhile, among the Romanians in London already here, they are being arrested at seven times the rate of Britons. According to official figures, around 800 people from the Eastern European state were arrested in the capital last month, and many of them are linked to a wave of cashpoint/ATM fraud which cost an estimated £40million in the first six months of this year alone. Police say that for every 1,000 Romanians in London, 183 are arrested. This compares to 26 Britons per 1,000, or if you like, Romanians account for more than 11% of all foreign national offenders, despite making up just a tiny proportion of residents. The police are concerned that the figures will rise even higher when restrictions on Romanians and Bulgarians living in Britain are lifted on January 1.

A poll of European Jews has found that more than three-quarters of those questioned believe anti-Semitism is on the rise in their home countries and close to one-third have considered emigrating because they don’t feel safe. The survey was conducted by the European Union’s Agency for Fundamental Rights. 34% of poll respondents in Sweden and 29% in France said they never wear a Star of David or anything else that could identify them as Jews.
First of all, when things go radically wrong…particularly in economies, well, its traditional to blame the Jews. Secondly, there has never been so much mass migration from East to west before, and many of these migrants are Muslim. For example, here in the UK there are approximately 270,000 Jews, compared to 2.8 million Muslims, Jews modern-day enemy. As we all know, previously it was the Catholics who had it in for the Jews. Furthermore, it does help that Israel receives as much bad press these days as good press. However, it is refreshing to know that in the UK there is a group of people who will never, never raise a hand against Jewish people. The AA (Automobile Association) and the RAC (Royal Automobile Club) are happy to change flat tyres belonging to both Muslims and Jews.

The SHOMRIM, (‘guards’ in Hebrew) is a police-trained civilian Jewish community-based citizen patrol group in London. Orthodox Jews who wear badges and uniforms says it wants to help its Muslim neighbours protect their mosques from further arson attacks. The group was started by Jewish New Yorkers angry at lengthy police response times after crimes were reported. The London group was originally established in order to combat anti-Semitic attacks, particularly in the Hampstead Garden Suburb area. I don’t know who initially contacted who, but I doubt it will work out long-term. It is much more likely that members of the Muslim community will take advice, and perhaps after some initial training, form their own protection patrol group.
