French Jews continue to flee the nation.

This is very sad. I hope they find places they can be safe.
Charles Krauthammer on Fox commented that the shame of the Holocaust in
WWII Europe has all but worn off after seventy years. He also noted that
anti-Semitism has been part and parcel of European civilization for the
last 2,000 years and nothing is going to change that.
Are we expected not only to put up with them but acutally like them? That
is to ask too muuch.
Do we really mean "never again"?

Amid the ritual expressions of regret and the pledges of “never again” on
Tuesday’s 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a bitter irony
was noted: Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe. With a vengeance.

It has become routine. If the kosher-grocery massacre in Paris hadn’t
happened in conjunction with Charlie Hebdo, how much worldwide notice would
it have received? https://tinyurl.com/y79nv9ss

As little as did the murder of a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school
in Toulouse. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-17426313

As little as did the terror attack that killed four at the Jewish Museum in
Brussels. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Museum_of_Belgium_shooting

The rise of European anti-Semitism is, in reality, just a return to the
norm. For a millennium, virulent Jew-hatred — persecution, expulsions,
massacres — was the norm in Europe until the shame of the Holocaust created
a temporary anomaly wherein anti-Semitism became socially unacceptable.

The hiatus is over. Jew-hatred is back, recapitulating the past with
impressive zeal. Italians protesting Gaza handed out leaflets calling for a
boycott of Jewish merchants. As in the 1930s. https://tinyurl.com/yda5xz8h

European anti-Semitism is not a Jewish problem, however. It’s a European
problem, a stain, a disease of which Europe is congenitally unable to rid

From the Jewish point of view, European anti-Semitism is a sideshow. The
story of European Jewry is over. It died at Auschwitz. Europe’s place as the
center and fulcrum of the Jewish world has been inherited by Israel. Not
only is it the first independent Jewish commonwealth in 2,000 years. It is,
also for the first time in 2,000 years, the largest Jewish community on the

The threat to the Jewish future lies not in Europe but in the Muslim Middle
East, today the heart of global anti-Semitism, a veritable factory of
anti-Jewish literature, films, blood libels and calls for violence, indeed
for another genocide. http://www.adl.org/anti-semitism/muslim-arab-world/

The founding charter of Hamas calls not just for the eradication of Israel
but for the killing of Jews everywhere. https://tinyurl.com/6jnej6

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah welcomes Jewish emigration to Israel —
because it makes the killing easier: “If Jews all gather in Israel, it will
save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.’’ And, of course, Iran
openly declares as its sacred mission the annihilation of Israel.

For America, Europe and the moderate Arabs, there are powerful reasons
having nothing to do with Israel for trying to prevent an apocalyptic,
fanatically anti-Western clerical regime in Tehran from getting the bomb:
Iranian hegemony, nuclear proliferation (including to terror groups) and
elemental national security.

For Israel, however, the threat is of a different order. Direct, immediate
and mortal.

The sophisticates cozily assure us not to worry. Deterrence will work. Didn’t
it work against the Soviets? Well, just 17 years into the atomic age, we
came harrowingly close to deterrence failure and all-out nuclear war.
Moreover, godless communists anticipate no reward in heaven. Atheists
calculate differently from jihadists with their cult of death. Name one
Soviet suicide bomber.

Former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, known as a moderate,
once characterized tiny Israel as a one-bomb country. He acknowledged Israel’s
deterrent capacity but noted the asymmetry: “Application of an atomic bomb
would not leave anything in Israel, but the same thing would just produce
damages in the Muslim world.” Result? Israel eradicated, Islam vindicated.
So much for deterrence.

And even if deterrence worked with Tehran, that’s not where the story ends.
Iran’s very acquisition of nukes would set off a nuclear arms race with half
a dozen Muslim countries from Turkey to Egypt to the Gulf states — in the
most unstable part of the world. A place where you wake up in the morning to
find a pro-American Yemeni government overthrown by rebels whose slogan is
“God is Great. Death to America. Death to Israel. Damn the Jews. Power to

The idea that some kind of six-sided deterrence would work in this roiling
cauldron of instability the way it did in the frozen bipolarity of the Cold
War is simply ridiculous.

The Iranian bomb is a national security issue, an alliance issue and a
regional Middle East issue. But it is also a uniquely Jewish issue because
of Israel’s situation as the only state on earth overtly threatened with
extinction, facing a potential nuclear power overtly threatening that

On the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz, mourning dead Jews is easy. And,
forgive me, cheap. Want to truly honor the dead? Show solidarity with the
living — Israel and its 6 million Jews. Make “never again” more than an
empty phrase. It took Nazi Germany seven years to kill 6 million Jews.

It would take a nuclear Iran one day.

Hysterical crap. Israel has the bomb, why not Iran? It might restore a bit
of balance.
It will after Iran has been turned into an ashtray...
