After Putin Cites Jews, Democrats Implore Trump to …

Within hours, the comment was shared widely on social media. Many commentators considered it a clear echo of the anti-Semitism that has plagued Russias history since at least the 19th century.

Nachman Shai, an Israeli legislator, called the Russian leaders remarks a classic example of anti-Semitism. His comments show that nothing has changed in viewing the Jews as responsible for all the worlds evil, he wrote on Twitter. This demands a strong reaction from the government of Israel.

Jonathan A. Greenblatt, chief executive of the New York-based Anti-Defamation League, said that Mr. Putins comment was redolent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a forged document frequently cited by anti-Semites since its emergence in 19th-century Russia. It is deeply disturbing to see the Russian president giving new life to classic anti-Semitic stereotypes that have plagued his country for hundreds of years, he said in a statement.

Among Democrats in Congress, patience with the White Houses silence in the face of such Kremlin provocations is running thin. Mr. Schumer and Ms. Pelosi were joined by the top Democrats on the chambers respective judiciary committees, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California and Jerrold Nadler of New York.

While Putins stance is not surprising, it is also simply unacceptable, they wrote in their letter.

Representative Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, said Mr. Putins comment speaks to anti-Semitic tropes that have spurred intolerance and ethnic violence for centuries, and it is disturbing that this type of anti-Semitism has seen a recent resurgence among populist, far-right leaders around the world. That President Trump has failed to condemn Putins statement, just as he equivocated on Charlottesville, undermines Americas moral responsibility to combat the kind of racism and anti-Semitism perniciously re-emerging today.

The Democratic letter outlines several steps that the Justice and State departments could take to try to force their extradition, such as pressing Interpol to issue what is effectively an international arrest warrant and using existing diplomatic channels, including raising the issue directly with Mr. Putin.

An Interpol notice can severely restrict a fugitives ability to live and travel overseas, they wrote.

The indictment of the Russian nationals does not directly say that the Russian government sponsored the election interference campaign, but top American intelligence officials have publicly said that Mr. Putin directed and oversaw it.

Mr. Putin, in his extended, evasive answer, seemed to delight in speculating about various possibilities including that the hacking never happened, and that if it did, Russia had nothing to do with it, or that maybe it was the work of an American citizen living in Russia, or of Russian free agents working on their own or for an American company. Only then did he come out with the line about Ukrainians, Tatars and Jews.

However, Mr. Putins comment may well have been lost in translation.

Speaking in Russian to the NBC presenter Megyn Kelly, Mr. Putin spoke of Russkie, a term denoting ethnic Russians in opposition to other nationalities living in the country. Many Russian Jews have long self-identified as separate from ethnic Russians a source of confusion among Americans who may miss the nuance.

When I first came to America in 1991 and was asked at J.F.K. airport, Are you Russian? I responded No, sir, Im Jewish, said Boruch Gorin, a senior aide to Russias chief rabbi, Berel Lazar, who has been supportive of the Russian leader. Putins comments were lost in translation.

However, Mr. Gorin noted that the Russian president rarely makes an effort to be politically correct, and in his speeches often intentionally separates ethnic Russians from the countrys minorities. Mr. Putin is clued up on political sensitivities in the West, and often seems to delight in skirting right along the edge of what is acceptable to Western audiences.

For instance, knowing that gay rights is an important issue in the West but is viewed with broad distaste at home, Mr. Putin in 2004 made a dig that appeared to combine that distaste with an equal widespread aversion to popular uprisings.

When it comes to the post-Soviet space, what concerns me are attempts to resolve political questions through extralegal means, he said at a news conference as a series of mass uprisings was sweeping the post-Soviet space. The creation of a system of permanent revolutions, whether they be pink, or light blue.

Mr. Putin flatly denied Kremlin involvement in the 2016 election interference in his interview with NBC.

Why have you decided the Russian authorities, myself included, gave anybody permission to do this? he asked.

He also said that he couldnt care less if Russians had attempted to meddle in the election and said he would never extradite those charged to the United States to stand trial.

The issue is a fraught one for Mr. Trump. He has repeatedly called Mr. Muellers investigation a witch hunt and views American conclusions about Russian meddling as a threat to his legitimacy as president. Democrats and some Republicans have blasted him for not responding to the Russian effort more aggressively.

Mr. Trump said last year that Mr. Putin had assured him the Russians did not interfere in the campaign. I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it, Mr. Trump said at the time.

The Democrats letter also sounds an alarm about this years midterm elections, warning that despite Mr. Putins claims, Russian efforts are ongoing and must be taken seriously before November.

It is extraordinary and confounding how little your administration is doing to counter Putins campaign to undermine our grand democracy, the Democrats wrote.

The video is posted on the YouTube page of Dimitri Shein, a Democratic candidate for Congress who is running against Young. Shein is also the man seen in the video questioning Young.

Murphy McCollough, Young’s press secretary, said in a statement to CNN that the congressman’s comment at the event “has been taken entirely out of context.”

“He was referencing the fact that when Hitler confiscated firearms from Jewish Germans, those communities were less able to defend themselves,” McCollough said. “He was not implying that an armed Jewish population would have been able to prevent the horrors of the Holocaust, but his intended message is that disarming citizens can have detrimental consequences. A defenseless people are left up to the mercy of its leaders.”

Rep. Don Young, the Alaska congressman known for making controversial statements, seemed to suggest that Jewish people died in the Holocaust because they were unarmed.

While speaking at a conference in his home state, the Republican lawmaker said, “How many millions of people were shot and killed because they were unarmed? Fifty million in Russia because their citizens were unarmed.”

He continued: “How many Jews were put in the ovens because they were unarmed?”

Young’s quote came after Dimitri Shein, a Democrat who is running for Young’s congressional seat, asked about school safety. Shein said his daughter’s school had been placed on lockdown, prompting the question. He didn’t identify himself a congressional candidate at the time.

Young spokeswoman Murphy McCollough said Young’s comment was taken out of context.

“He was referencing the fact that when Hitler confiscated firearms from Jewish Germans, those communities were less able to defend themselves,” McCollough said in an email. “He was not implying that an armed Jewish population would have been able to prevent the horrors of the Holocaust, but his intended message is that disarming citizens can have detrimental consequences.”

Shein disagreed with that statement, arguing that Young had been trying to deflect the gun issue, blaming violence on video games and referencing the Holocaust instead of answering the question or proposing a solution.

Shein, who immigrated from Russia in 1993, also took offense to Young saying that armed Russians would have been able to prevent slaughters by the Red Army.

“It’s just insulting,” he said.

Still, he believes that the congressman’s comments will merely fuel contributions to his re-election campaign.

Young who has been Congress since 1973 and is the longest-servingmember of Congress currently in office has a reputation for making controversial comments. Last year, he had to apologize for referring toa fellow lawmaker in her 50sas “young lady” who didn’t know what she was talking about. In 2014, he apologized for saying suicide showed a lack of support from friends and family. And back in 2013, he apologized after referringtoHispanic migrant workers as “wetbacks.”

Anti-Semitism is still alive in Germany as Jews face …

Austin Davis, Special to USA TODAY Published 6:00 a.m. ET Dec. 21, 2017 | Updated 4:21 p.m. ET Dec. 21, 2017

About 1,000 people affiliated with Neo-Nazi and extreme right groups march through Berlin’s Spandau district in commemoration of 30 years to Rudolf Hess’s death, on Aug. 19, 2017. Hess, who served as Adolf Hitler’s deputy, committed suicide on Aug. 17, 1987 at Spandau Prison.(Photo: Omer Messinger, Getty Images)

BERLIN When telecommunications manager Mikhail Tanaev emigrated toGermany in 1998from his native Russia as a teen, his Jewish faith didn’t matter to classmates or neighbors.

That’s because Germany has taken extraordinary steps since the end of World War II to atone for the Holocaust and prevent anti-Semitismfrom taking hold again. The country has paid reparations to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, erected dozens of memorials to those murdered and turned anti-Semitic speech into a crime.

Yet Chancellor Angela Merkels decision in 2015 to open the nation’s arms to 1 million mostly Muslim refugees has created a double threat for Germany’sroughly 120,000 Jews: rising anti-Semitism from the newcomers and a resurgent right-wing nationalist movement spawned by the arrival of so manyimmigrants.

The anti-Semitic sentiment has become more pubic and virulent, said Tanaev, 32. “When I arrived in Germany … I never saw such displays.”

Last week, thousands of protesters in Berlinburned Israeli flags to protest President Trump’s decision on Dec. 7 to recognizeJerusalem as Israel’s capital. The flag-burning prompted a national outcry.

“I never thought that could happen in the middle of Berlin. That’s something you see in other parts of the world. It’s really disturbing,” Tanaev said. “It feels like we’re being threatened because you never know how people will react further when something like this occurs.”

Other instances of anti-Semitism in Germany have become more common andbrazen recently. Last month, thieves in Berlin made off with more than a dozen cobblestone-sized plaquesembedded in sidewalks memorializing victims of the Holocaust.And the German military found Nazi memorabilia in soldiers’ barracks over the summer.

In 2016, Germanyrecorded 1,468 anti-Semitic incidents, an increase from previous years that has put Germany’s Jewish community on edge, According to arecent survey by the Bielefeld University in western Germany, 62%of Jewish respondents said they experience anti-Semitism in their everyday lives, while 28% said they were victims of verbal attacks or harassment in the past year.

The survey points to increased anti-Semitism by Muslim newcomersand astrengthened right-wing nativist movement, said Andreas Zick, who led the study.

Underscoring that trend is the rise of the anti-immigrantAlternative for Germany (AfD), now the third-largest political party in Parliament four years after its founding. The AfD drums up support with nationalist andanti-Semitic rhetoric.

“Germans are the only people in the world who plant a monument of shame in the heart of the capital,” senior AfD member Bjrn Hcke said this year aboutthe Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin.

Other party members want Nazi soldiers remembered as patriots.

Zick alsonotedanti-Semitic remarks posted on social media by right-wing groups. The comments fuelmisconceptions among new immigrants that Germany tolerates such behavior,despite strict laws requiringsocial media giants such as Facebook to delete posts categorized as hate speech, he said.

“There’s a lot of evidence from our studies that the Internet and young Muslim men in public are threatening (Jews), Zick said. Refugees coming in don’t perceive that there’s a strong norm against anti-Semitism.

Such sentiments prompted a Jewish community centerin Berlin to launch an initiative to combatanti-Semitism.

“Here, we put in concrete terms that ‘the Jew’ is actually a normal person that he looks like you and is someone you can have a normal conversation with,”said Rabbi Daniel Fabian of the Kahal Adass Jisroel Jewish community center and synagogue.

Members of thecommunity center have been spit on and harassed in predominately Muslim neighborhoods since 2014, Fabiansaid. And his synagogue recently received a bomb threat from right-wing radicals. The compound housing the synagogue and community center are now under 24-hour police surveillance.

Jewish leaders are pushing for changes in the education system to head off anti-Semitism, including history lessons with visits to concentration camps. Bavaria is the only German state that now requires such visits.

“We are looking for modern means to convey what has happened and to keep the memory alive,”said Josef Schuster, president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews.

Tanaev said it also is important to draw parallels between the history of Jewish immigration and the current influx of newcomers.”That’s the history of our people, and it’s important to show others that fact,” he said.

Fabian, whose grandmother was in the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II, called for support from Muslim groups as well as the government to fight anti-Semitism.

We can’t be the only ones who are constantly reminding everyone else to look at what’s happening right under your noses,” he said.

On the Jews and Their Lies – Wikipedia

On the Jews and Their Lies (German: Von den Jden und iren Lgen; in modern spelling Von den Juden und ihren Lgen) is a 65,000-word anti-semitic treatise written in 1543 by the German Reformation leader Martin Luther.

Luther’s attitude toward the Jews took different forms during his lifetime. In his earlier period, until 1537 or not much earlier, he wanted to convert Jews to Christianity, but failed. In his later period when he wrote this particular treatise, he denounced them and urged their persecution.[1]

In the treatise, he argues that Jewish synagogues and schools be set on fire, their prayer books destroyed, rabbis forbidden to preach, homes burned, and property and money confiscated. They should be shown no mercy or kindness,[2] afforded no legal protection,[3] and “these poisonous envenomed worms” should be drafted into forced labor or expelled for all time.[4] He also seems to advocate their murder, writing “[W]e are at fault in not slaying them”.[5]

In the treatise, Luther describes Jews as a “base, whoring people, that is, no people of God, and their boast of lineage, circumcision, and law must be accounted as filth.”[6] Luther wrote that they are “full of the devil’s feces … which they wallow in like swine,”[7] and the synagogue is an “incorrigible whore and an evil slut”.[8]

In the first ten sections of the treatise, Luther expounds, at considerable length, upon his views concerning Jews and Judaism and how these compare to Christians and Christianity. Following the exposition, Section XI of the treatise advises Christians to carry out seven remedial actions. These are

Early in his life, Luther had argued that the Jews had been prevented from converting to Christianity by the proclamation of what he believed to be an impure gospel by the Catholic Church, and he believed they would respond favorably to the evangelical message if it were presented to them gently. He expressed concern for the poor conditions in which they were forced to live, and insisted that anyone denying that Jesus was born a Jew was committing heresy.[10]

Luther’s first known comment about the Jews is in a letter written to Reverend Spalatin in 1514:

In 1519, Luther challenged the doctrine Servitus Judaeorum (“Servitude of the Jews”), established in Corpus Juris Civilis by Justinian I in 529. He wrote: “Absurd theologians defend hatred for the Jews. … What Jew would consent to enter our ranks when he sees the cruelty and enmity we wreak on themthat in our behavior towards them we less resemble Christians than beasts?” [12]

In his commentary on the Magnificat, Luther is critical of the emphasis Judaism places on the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament. He states that they “undertook to keep the law by their own strength, and failed to learn from it their needy and cursed state.”[13] Yet, he concludes that God’s grace will continue for Jews as Abraham’s descendants for all time, since they may always become Christians.[14] “We ought… not to treat the Jews in so unkindly a spirit, for there are future Christians among them.”[15]

In his 1523 essay That Jesus Christ Was Born a Jew, Luther condemned the inhuman treatment of the Jews and urged Christians to treat them kindly. Luther’s fervent desire was that Jews would hear the Gospel proclaimed clearly and be moved to convert to Christianity. Thus he argued:

In August 1536, Luther’s prince, Elector of Saxony John Frederick, issued a mandate that prohibited Jews from inhabiting, engaging in business in, or passing through his realm. An Alsatian shtadlan, Rabbi Josel of Rosheim, asked a reformer, Wolfgang Capito, to approach Luther in order to obtain an audience with the prince, but Luther refused every intercession.[17] In response to Josel, Luther referred to his unsuccessful attempts to convert the Jews: “… I would willingly do my best for your people but I will not contribute to your [Jewish] obstinacy by my own kind actions. You must find another intermediary with my good lord.”[18]Heiko Oberman notes this event as significant in Luther’s attitude toward the Jews: “Even today this refusal is often judged to be the decisive turning point in Luther’s career from friendliness to hostility toward the Jews;”[19] yet, Oberman contends that Luther would have denied any such “turning point”. Rather he felt that Jews were to be treated in a “friendly way” in order to avoid placing unnecessary obstacles in their path to Christian conversion, a genuine concern of Luther.[20]

Paul Johnson writes that “Luther was not content with verbal abuse. Even before he wrote his anti-Semitic pamphlet, he got Jews expelled from Saxony in 1537, and in the 1540s he drove them from many German towns; he tried unsuccessfully to get the elector to expel them from Brandenburg in 1543.”[21]

Michael Berenbaum writes that Luther’s reliance on the Bible as the sole source of Christian authority fed his later fury toward Jews over their rejection of Jesus as the messiah.[10] For Luther, salvation depended on the belief that Jesus was the Son of God, a belief that adherents of Judaism do not share. Graham Noble writes that Luther wanted to save Jews, in his own terms, not exterminate them, but beneath his apparent reasonableness toward them, there was a “biting intolerance”, which produced “ever more furious demands for their conversion to his own brand of Christianity”. (Noble, 1-2) When they failed to convert, he turned on them.[22]

The prevailing scholarly view since the Second World War is that the treatise exercised a major and persistent influence on Germany’s attitude toward its Jewish citizens in the centuries between the Reformation and the Holocaust.[23] Four hundred years after it was written, the Nazis displayed On the Jews and Their Lies during Nuremberg rallies, and the city of Nuremberg presented a first edition to Julius Streicher, Roman Catholic editor of the Nazi newspaper Der Strmer, the newspaper describing it, on Streicher’s first encounter with the treatise in 1937, as the most radically antisemitic tract ever published.[24] Against this view, theologian Johannes Wallmann writes that the treatise had no continuity of influence in Germany, and was in fact largely ignored during the 18th and 19th centuries.[25] Hans Hillerbrand argues that to focus on Luther’s role in the development of German antisemitism is to underestimate the “larger peculiarities of German history.”[26]

Since the 1980s, some Lutheran church bodies have formally denounced and dissociated themselves from Luther’s vitriol about the Jews. In November 1998, on the 60th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria issued a statement: “It is imperative for the Lutheran Church, which knows itself to be indebted to the work and tradition of Martin Luther, to take seriously also his anti-Jewish utterances, to acknowledge their theological function, and to reflect on their consequences. It has to distance itself from every [expression of] anti-Judaism in Lutheran theology.”[27]

Jews Flee Paris Suburbs over Rising Tide of Islamist Anti …

The Paris commuter newspaper 20 Minutesdocuments an internal exodus during 2017 of Jews from the Seine-Saint-Denis department, saying it is emblematic of broader concerns that French Jews, like their brothers and sisters across Europe, are finding it increasingly difficult to reconcile their faith with the changing demographics of the continent.

The paper reports that Jews are leaving their homes on the northeastern fringe of Paris to escape the open hostility that French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Sunday condemned as well-rooted.The newspaper reports:

This internal exodus is difficult to quantify, but it is clear that many synagogues of Seine-Saint-Denis have closed, for lack of people. In Pierrefitte, the rabbi has recorded a 50 percent decline in the congregations since his arrival thirteen years ago. A similar story is told in (nearby)Bondy, where attendance on Yom Kippur (the holiest day of the Jewish calendar) has fallen from about 800 to 400 in the last decade.

The Bondy synagogue president saw a deteriorating climate of the last15 years as driving the exodus, Its hard to explain, its provocations, its looks, he lamented. There are places where we do not feel welcome.

His observations mimic those made 12 months before innearby Raincy, where local Rabbi Moshe Lewin said he feared he could be one of the last Jewish leaders in Seine-Saint-Denis.

What upsets me is that in some areas of France, Jews can no longer live peacefully, and that just five minutes from my home, some are forced to hide their kippas (skullcaps) or their Star of David, hesaid.

The sensation of not feeling welcome is nothing new to French Jews.In 2015, journalist Zvika Klein recorded the reaction to his taking to the streets of Paris wearing a traditional kippa. See the result for yourself below:

Klein laterpoints out the irony that Paristoday is a city wherekeffiyeh-wearing men and veiled women speak Arabic on every street corner but where soldiers are walking every street that houses a Jewish institution.

Sammy Ghozlan, the president of the Jewish communal security organization BNCVA, told 20 Minutes that it was vitalnot to underestimate the antisemitism we experience on a daily basis.

For a long time, Jews were targeted through their symbols today, people themselves are targeted directly, Ghozlan said.

As Breitbart Jerusalem has reported, the experience of Jews in Paris ismuch the same across the rest of the country. More and more are feeling so unsafe that they now feel they have no other choice but to move to Israel for safety.

They arecontinuing a trend that has seen tens of thousands of Jews quit the countryin the past decade.

More than 5,000 departures were recorded in 2016 on top of the record 7,900 who left in 2015 and 7,231 in 2014. In total, 40,000 French Jews have emigrated since 2006, according to figurescited by AFP.

On the evidence, that number will not be falling anytime soon.

After Putin Cites Jews, Democrats Implore Trump to …

Within hours, the comment was shared widely on social media. Many commentators considered it a clear echo of the anti-Semitism that has plagued Russias history since at least the 19th century. Nachman Shai, an Israeli legislator, called the Russian leaders remarks a classic example of anti-Semitism. His comments show that nothing has changed in viewing the Jews as responsible for all the worlds evil, he wrote on Twitter. This demands a strong reaction from the government of Israel. Jonathan A. Greenblatt, chief executive of the New York-based Anti-Defamation League, said that Mr. Putins comment was redolent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a forged document frequently cited by anti-Semites since its emergence in 19th-century Russia. It is deeply disturbing to see the Russian president giving new life to classic anti-Semitic stereotypes that have plagued his country for hundreds of years, he said in a statement. Among Democrats in Congress, patience with the White Houses silence in the face of such Kremlin provocations is running thin. Mr. Schumer and Ms. Pelosi were joined by the top Democrats on the chambers respective judiciary committees, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California and Jerrold Nadler of New York. While Putins stance is not surprising, it is also simply unacceptable, they wrote in their letter. Representative Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, said Mr. Putins comment speaks to anti-Semitic tropes that have spurred intolerance and ethnic violence for centuries, and it is disturbing that this type of anti-Semitism has seen a recent resurgence among populist, far-right leaders around the world. That President Trump has failed to condemn Putins statement, just as he equivocated on Charlottesville, undermines Americas moral responsibility to combat the kind of racism and anti-Semitism perniciously re-emerging today. The Democratic letter outlines several steps that the Justice and State departments could take to try to force their extradition, such as pressing Interpol to issue what is effectively an international arrest warrant and using existing diplomatic channels, including raising the issue directly with Mr. Putin. An Interpol notice can severely restrict a fugitives ability to live and travel overseas, they wrote. The indictment of the Russian nationals does not directly say that the Russian government sponsored the election interference campaign, but top American intelligence officials have publicly said that Mr. Putin directed and oversaw it. Mr. Putin, in his extended, evasive answer, seemed to delight in speculating about various possibilities including that the hacking never happened, and that if it did, Russia had nothing to do with it, or that maybe it was the work of an American citizen living in Russia, or of Russian free agents working on their own or for an American company. Only then did he come out with the line about Ukrainians, Tatars and Jews. However, Mr. Putins comment may well have been lost in translation. Speaking in Russian to the NBC presenter Megyn Kelly, Mr. Putin spoke of Russkie, a term denoting ethnic Russians in opposition to other nationalities living in the country. Many Russian Jews have long self-identified as separate from ethnic Russians a source of confusion among Americans who may miss the nuance. When I first came to America in 1991 and was asked at J.F.K. airport, Are you Russian? I responded No, sir, Im Jewish, said Boruch Gorin, a senior aide to Russias chief rabbi, Berel Lazar, who has been supportive of the Russian leader. Putins comments were lost in translation. However, Mr. Gorin noted that the Russian president rarely makes an effort to be politically correct, and in his speeches often intentionally separates ethnic Russians from the countrys minorities. Mr. Putin is clued up on political sensitivities in the West, and often seems to delight in skirting right along the edge of what is acceptable to Western audiences. For instance, knowing that gay rights is an important issue in the West but is viewed with broad distaste at home, Mr. Putin in 2004 made a dig that appeared to combine that distaste with an equal widespread aversion to popular uprisings. When it comes to the post-Soviet space, what concerns me are attempts to resolve political questions through extralegal means, he said at a news conference as a series of mass uprisings was sweeping the post-Soviet space. The creation of a system of permanent revolutions, whether they be pink, or light blue. Mr. Putin flatly denied Kremlin involvement in the 2016 election interference in his interview with NBC. Why have you decided the Russian authorities, myself included, gave anybody permission to do this? he asked. He also said that he couldnt care less if Russians had attempted to meddle in the election and said he would never extradite those charged to the United States to stand trial. The issue is a fraught one for Mr. Trump. He has repeatedly called Mr. Muellers investigation a witch hunt and views American conclusions about Russian meddling as a threat to his legitimacy as president. Democrats and some Republicans have blasted him for not responding to the Russian effort more aggressively. Mr. Trump said last year that Mr. Putin had assured him the Russians did not interfere in the campaign. I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it, Mr. Trump said at the time. The Democrats letter also sounds an alarm about this years midterm elections, warning that despite Mr. Putins claims, Russian efforts are ongoing and must be taken seriously before November. It is extraordinary and confounding how little your administration is doing to counter Putins campaign to undermine our grand democracy, the Democrats wrote.

Alaska Rep. Don Young suggests more Jews would have …

The video is posted on the YouTube page of Dimitri Shein, a Democratic candidate for Congress who is running against Young. Shein is also the man seen in the video questioning Young. Murphy McCollough, Young’s press secretary, said in a statement to CNN that the congressman’s comment at the event “has been taken entirely out of context.” “He was referencing the fact that when Hitler confiscated firearms from Jewish Germans, those communities were less able to defend themselves,” McCollough said. “He was not implying that an armed Jewish population would have been able to prevent the horrors of the Holocaust, but his intended message is that disarming citizens can have detrimental consequences. A defenseless people are left up to the mercy of its leaders.”

Don Young suggests Jews died in Holocaust because they were …

This Oct. 17, 2016, photo shows U.S. Rep. Don Young gesturing while speaking with a reporter after a debate in Anchorage, Alaska.(Photo: Mark Thiessen, AP) Rep. Don Young, the Alaska congressman known for making controversial statements, seemed to suggest that Jewish people died in the Holocaust because they were unarmed. While speaking at a conference in his home state, the Republican lawmaker said, “How many millions of people were shot and killed because they were unarmed? Fifty million in Russia because their citizens were unarmed.” He continued: “How many Jews were put in the ovens because they were unarmed?” Young’s quote came after Dimitri Shein, a Democrat who is running for Young’s congressional seat, asked about school safety. Shein said his daughter’s school had been placed on lockdown, prompting the question. He didn’t identify himself a congressional candidate at the time. Young spokeswoman Murphy McCollough said Young’s comment was taken out of context. “He was referencing the fact that when Hitler confiscated firearms from Jewish Germans, those communities were less able to defend themselves,” McCollough said in an email. “He was not implying that an armed Jewish population would have been able to prevent the horrors of the Holocaust, but his intended message is that disarming citizens can have detrimental consequences.” Shein disagreed with that statement, arguing that Young had been trying to deflect the gun issue, blaming violence on video games and referencing the Holocaust instead of answering the question or proposing a solution. Shein, who immigrated from Russia in 1993, also took offense to Young saying that armed Russians would have been able to prevent slaughters by the Red Army. “It’s just insulting,” he said. Still, he believes that the congressman’s comments will merely fuel contributions to his re-election campaign. Young who has been Congress since 1973 and is the longest-servingmember of Congress currently in office has a reputation for making controversial comments. Last year, he had to apologize for referring toa fellow lawmaker in her 50sas “young lady” who didn’t know what she was talking about. In 2014, he apologized for saying suicide showed a lack of support from friends and family. And back in 2013, he apologized after referringtoHispanic migrant workers as “wetbacks.” More: Alaska’s Don Young to become most senior member of Congress after Conyers’ retirement Read or Share this story: https://usat.ly/2FCn2Hz

Anti-Semitism is still alive in Germany as Jews face …

Austin Davis, Special to USA TODAY Published 6:00 a.m. ET Dec. 21, 2017 | Updated 4:21 p.m. ET Dec. 21, 2017 About 1,000 people affiliated with Neo-Nazi and extreme right groups march through Berlin’s Spandau district in commemoration of 30 years to Rudolf Hess’s death, on Aug. 19, 2017. Hess, who served as Adolf Hitler’s deputy, committed suicide on Aug. 17, 1987 at Spandau Prison.(Photo: Omer Messinger, Getty Images) BERLIN When telecommunications manager Mikhail Tanaev emigrated toGermany in 1998from his native Russia as a teen, his Jewish faith didn’t matter to classmates or neighbors. That’s because Germany has taken extraordinary steps since the end of World War II to atone for the Holocaust and prevent anti-Semitismfrom taking hold again. The country has paid reparations to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, erected dozens of memorials to those murdered and turned anti-Semitic speech into a crime. Yet Chancellor Angela Merkels decision in 2015 to open the nation’s arms to 1 million mostly Muslim refugees has created a double threat for Germany’sroughly 120,000 Jews: rising anti-Semitism from the newcomers and a resurgent right-wing nationalist movement spawned by the arrival of so manyimmigrants. The anti-Semitic sentiment has become more pubic and virulent, said Tanaev, 32. “When I arrived in Germany … I never saw such displays.” Last week, thousands of protesters in Berlinburned Israeli flags to protest President Trump’s decision on Dec. 7 to recognizeJerusalem as Israel’s capital. The flag-burning prompted a national outcry. “I never thought that could happen in the middle of Berlin. That’s something you see in other parts of the world. It’s really disturbing,” Tanaev said. “It feels like we’re being threatened because you never know how people will react further when something like this occurs.” Other instances of anti-Semitism in Germany have become more common andbrazen recently. Last month, thieves in Berlin made off with more than a dozen cobblestone-sized plaquesembedded in sidewalks memorializing victims of the Holocaust.And the German military found Nazi memorabilia in soldiers’ barracks over the summer. In 2016, Germanyrecorded 1,468 anti-Semitic incidents, an increase from previous years that has put Germany’s Jewish community on edge, According to arecent survey by the Bielefeld University in western Germany, 62%of Jewish respondents said they experience anti-Semitism in their everyday lives, while 28% said they were victims of verbal attacks or harassment in the past year. The survey points to increased anti-Semitism by Muslim newcomersand astrengthened right-wing nativist movement, said Andreas Zick, who led the study.

The AfD drums up support with nationalist andanti-Semitic rhetoric. “Germans are the only people in the world who plant a monument of shame in the heart of the capital,” senior AfD member Bjrn Hcke said this year aboutthe Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin. Other party members want Nazi soldiers remembered as patriots. Zick alsonotedanti-Semitic remarks posted on social media by right-wing groups. The comments fuelmisconceptions among new immigrants that Germany tolerates such behavior,despite strict laws requiringsocial media giants such as Facebook to delete posts categorized as hate speech, he said. “There’s a lot of evidence from our studies that the Internet and young Muslim men in public are threatening (Jews), Zick said. Refugees coming in don’t perceive that there’s a strong norm against anti-Semitism. Such sentiments prompted a Jewish community centerin Berlin to launch an initiative to combatanti-Semitism.

Members of thecommunity center have been spit on and harassed in predominately Muslim neighborhoods since 2014, Fabiansaid. And his synagogue recently received a bomb threat from right-wing radicals. The compound housing the synagogue and community center are now under 24-hour police surveillance. Jewish leaders are pushing for changes in the education system to head off anti-Semitism, including history lessons with visits to concentration camps. Bavaria is the only German state that now requires such visits. “We are looking for modern means to convey what has happened and to keep the memory alive,”said Josef Schuster, president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews. Tanaev said it also is important to draw parallels between the history of Jewish immigration and the current influx of newcomers.”That’s the history of our people, and it’s important to show others that fact,” he said. Fabian, whose grandmother was in the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II, called for support from Muslim groups as well as the government to fight anti-Semitism. We can’t be the only ones who are constantly reminding everyone else to look at what’s happening right under your noses,” he said. Read or Share this story: https://usat.ly/2BVxt9G

On the Jews and Their Lies – Wikipedia

On the Jews and Their Lies (German: Von den Jden und iren Lgen; in modern spelling Von den Juden und ihren Lgen) is a 65,000-word anti-semitic treatise written in 1543 by the German Reformation leader Martin Luther. Luther’s attitude toward the Jews took different forms during his lifetime. In his earlier period, until 1537 or not much earlier, he wanted to convert Jews to Christianity, but failed. In his later period when he wrote this particular treatise, he denounced them and urged their persecution.[1] In the treatise, he argues that Jewish synagogues and schools be set on fire, their prayer books destroyed, rabbis forbidden to preach, homes burned, and property and money confiscated. They should be shown no mercy or kindness,[2] afforded no legal protection,[3] and “these poisonous envenomed worms” should be drafted into forced labor or expelled for all time.[4] He also seems to advocate their murder, writing “[W]e are at fault in not slaying them”.[5] In the treatise, Luther describes Jews as a “base, whoring people, that is, no people of God, and their boast of lineage, circumcision, and law must be accounted as filth.”[6] Luther wrote that they are “full of the devil’s feces … which they wallow in like swine,”[7] and the synagogue is an “incorrigible whore and an evil slut”.[8] In the first ten sections of the treatise, Luther expounds, at considerable length, upon his views concerning Jews and Judaism and how these compare to Christians and Christianity. Following the exposition, Section XI of the treatise advises Christians to carry out seven remedial actions. These are Early in his life, Luther had argued that the Jews had been prevented from converting to Christianity by the proclamation of what he believed to be an impure gospel by the Catholic Church, and he believed they would respond favorably to the evangelical message if it were presented to them gently. He expressed concern for the poor conditions in which they were forced to live, and insisted that anyone denying that Jesus was born a Jew was committing heresy.[10] Luther’s first known comment about the Jews is in a letter written to Reverend Spalatin in 1514: In 1519, Luther challenged the doctrine Servitus Judaeorum (“Servitude of the Jews”), established in Corpus Juris Civilis by Justinian I in 529. He wrote: “Absurd theologians defend hatred for the Jews. … What Jew would consent to enter our ranks when he sees the cruelty and enmity we wreak on themthat in our behavior towards them we less resemble Christians than beasts?” [12] In his commentary on the Magnificat, Luther is critical of the emphasis Judaism places on the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament. He states that they “undertook to keep the law by their own strength, and failed to learn from it their needy and cursed state.”[13] Yet, he concludes that God’s grace will continue for Jews as Abraham’s descendants for all time, since they may always become Christians.[14] “We ought… not to treat the Jews in so unkindly a spirit, for there are future Christians among them.”[15] In his 1523 essay That Jesus Christ Was Born a Jew, Luther condemned the inhuman treatment of the Jews and urged Christians to treat them kindly. Luther’s fervent desire was that Jews would hear the Gospel proclaimed clearly and be moved to convert to Christianity. Thus he argued: In August 1536, Luther’s prince, Elector of Saxony John Frederick, issued a mandate that prohibited Jews from inhabiting, engaging in business in, or passing through his realm. An Alsatian shtadlan, Rabbi Josel of Rosheim, asked a reformer, Wolfgang Capito, to approach Luther in order to obtain an audience with the prince, but Luther refused every intercession.[17] In response to Josel, Luther referred to his unsuccessful attempts to convert the Jews: “… I would willingly do my best for your people but I will not contribute to your [Jewish] obstinacy by my own kind actions. You must find another intermediary with my good lord.”[18]Heiko Oberman notes this event as significant in Luther’s attitude toward the Jews: “Even today this refusal is often judged to be the decisive turning point in Luther’s career from friendliness to hostility toward the Jews;”[19] yet, Oberman contends that Luther would have denied any such “turning point”. Rather he felt that Jews were to be treated in a “friendly way” in order to avoid placing unnecessary obstacles in their path to Christian conversion, a genuine concern of Luther.[20] Paul Johnson writes that “Luther was not content with verbal abuse. Even before he wrote his anti-Semitic pamphlet, he got Jews expelled from Saxony in 1537, and in the 1540s he drove them from many German towns; he tried unsuccessfully to get the elector to expel them from Brandenburg in 1543.”[21] Michael Berenbaum writes that Luther’s reliance on the Bible as the sole source of Christian authority fed his later fury toward Jews over their rejection of Jesus as the messiah.[10] For Luther, salvation depended on the belief that Jesus was the Son of God, a belief that adherents of Judaism do not share. Graham Noble writes that Luther wanted to save Jews, in his own terms, not exterminate them, but beneath his apparent reasonableness toward them, there was a “biting intolerance”, which produced “ever more furious demands for their conversion to his own brand of Christianity”. (Noble, 1-2) When they failed to convert, he turned on them.[22] The prevailing scholarly view since the Second World War is that the treatise exercised a major and persistent influence on Germany’s attitude toward its Jewish citizens in the centuries between the Reformation and the Holocaust.[23] Four hundred years after it was written, the Nazis displayed On the Jews and Their Lies during Nuremberg rallies, and the city of Nuremberg presented a first edition to Julius Streicher, Roman Catholic editor of the Nazi newspaper Der Strmer, the newspaper describing it, on Streicher’s first encounter with the treatise in 1937, as the most radically antisemitic tract ever published.[24] Against this view, theologian Johannes Wallmann writes that the treatise had no continuity of influence in Germany, and was in fact largely ignored during the 18th and 19th centuries.[25] Hans Hillerbrand argues that to focus on Luther’s role in the development of German antisemitism is to underestimate the “larger peculiarities of German history.”[26] Since the 1980s, some Lutheran church bodies have formally denounced and dissociated themselves from Luther’s vitriol about the Jews. In November 1998, on the 60th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria issued a statement: “It is imperative for the Lutheran Church, which knows itself to be indebted to the work and tradition of Martin Luther, to take seriously also his anti-Jewish utterances, to acknowledge their theological function, and to reflect on their consequences. It has to distance itself from every [expression of] anti-Judaism in Lutheran theology.”[27]

Jews Flee Paris Suburbs over Rising Tide of Islamist Anti …

The Paris commuter newspaper 20 Minutesdocuments an internal exodus during 2017 of Jews from the Seine-Saint-Denis department, saying it is emblematic of broader concerns that French Jews, like their brothers and sisters across Europe, are finding it increasingly difficult to reconcile their faith with the changing demographics of the continent. The paper reports that Jews are leaving their homes on the northeastern fringe of Paris to escape the open hostility that French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Sunday condemned as well-rooted.The newspaper reports: This internal exodus is difficult to quantify, but it is clear that many synagogues of Seine-Saint-Denis have closed, for lack of people. In Pierrefitte, the rabbi has recorded a 50 percent decline in the congregations since his arrival thirteen years ago. A similar story is told in (nearby)Bondy, where attendance on Yom Kippur (the holiest day of the Jewish calendar) has fallen from about 800 to 400 in the last decade. The Bondy synagogue president saw a deteriorating climate of the last15 years as driving the exodus, Its hard to explain, its provocations, its looks, he lamented. There are places where we do not feel welcome. His observations mimic those made 12 months before innearby Raincy, where local Rabbi Moshe Lewin said he feared he could be one of the last Jewish leaders in Seine-Saint-Denis. What upsets me is that in some areas of France, Jews can no longer live peacefully, and that just five minutes from my home, some are forced to hide their kippas (skullcaps) or their Star of David, hesaid. The sensation of not feeling welcome is nothing new to French Jews.In 2015, journalist Zvika Klein recorded the reaction to his taking to the streets of Paris wearing a traditional kippa. See the result for yourself below: Klein laterpoints out the irony that Paristoday is a city wherekeffiyeh-wearing men and veiled women speak Arabic on every street corner but where soldiers are walking every street that houses a Jewish institution. Sammy Ghozlan, the president of the Jewish communal security organization BNCVA, told 20 Minutes that it was vitalnot to underestimate the antisemitism we experience on a daily basis. For a long time, Jews were targeted through their symbols today, people themselves are targeted directly, Ghozlan said. As Breitbart Jerusalem has reported, the experience of Jews in Paris ismuch the same across the rest of the country. More and more are feeling so unsafe that they now feel they have no other choice but to move to Israel for safety. They arecontinuing a trend that has seen tens of thousands of Jews quit the countryin the past decade. More than 5,000 departures were recorded in 2016 on top of the record 7,900 who left in 2015 and 7,231 in 2014. In total, 40,000 French Jews have emigrated since 2006, according to figurescited by AFP. On the evidence, that number will not be falling anytime soon.
