♫ Everything That’s Old Is New Again ♫ Sadly…

Good God, I hope not…

Professor Jacobson of Cornell Law School seems to think so.  Here is part of his in-depth analysis of the potential survival of Jewish communities in Europe:

“Call it the yogurt’s-expiration-date syndrome”

There is no future left for Jewish communities in Europe.

That’s the inescapable conclusion of You Only Live Twice by Michel Gurfinkiel in Mosaic Magazine.

The lengthy article is a long trip down the death during World War II and then rebirth of Jewish communities in Europe, and how that rebirth is being snuffed out by renewed anti-Semitism from multiple directions, particularly leftist demonization of Israel and Islamist anti-Semitism.

This Leftist-Islamist coalition, centered around hatred of Israel, is a topic we’ve explored here many times in connection with anti-Semitism in Malmö, Sweden, on British campuses, in the BDS movement, in the academic boycott movement, among other places.

The fact is that while intellectually one can distinguish anti-Israeli fervor from anti-Semitism, in reality, on the streets of Malmö and Paris, and elsewhere in Europe, they are one and the same. ~

~It’s also no surprise that it is in Muslim communities in Europe that a Jew must be afraid to wear a yarmulke in public for fear of physical attack.

Here we go, again..

Add to the equation the demonization of Jewry in the United States, coupled with the politically-correct handling of Islamic folk, even radicalized Islamic folk, and the future doesn’t look good for Europe or the  U.S.

I’ve said it before, political correctness will be the death of us.  And many others.  We (meaning American society) are so afraid of offending anyone that we bend over backwards to accommodate certain folks, while simultaneously minimizing others.  Not a good idea, when all are created equal.

Last time I checked the text.

  3. Jews, America, white males

    All are synonymous in the islamic radical mind and brainwashing.
    We are screwed because the ‘powers that be’ don’t want to say it’s true.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
