German Jews warned not to wear kippas after rise in anti-Semitism

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure why anyone would want to wear a kipper on their head, but if they choose to, they shouldn't be beaten up

Jews in Iran have lived peacefully together, just saw it on youtube.  Not even a security guard at the syn agog 

They might be, but most likely as second rate citizens. Probably required to pay security money (a tax on non-Muslims called jizjah) to keep themselves safe. And probably their words are less powerful in the courts compared to the words of a Muslim.

What on earth has been happening in Germany for this culture of violence and hatred to be flourishing like this??

Immigration policy?

Why don't women wear kippahs and why don't men wear hijabs or burkas? .....these ridiculous religious practices are just that -ridiculous .  If you "identify" with mythological separatist "beliefs" and "faiths",  you are living in your own fantasy

No more fantasy than white supremacy. Except that the religious aren’t attacking the white supremacists.

Some time ago they forced them to wear yellow stars, and now they advise them not to wear kippas.....

 

Sad event in both case, only a difference in level.

 

The advice is no doubt well-meant, but I feel a better response by everyday Germans would be for all those who abhor this kind of violence to wear kippers in solidarity on a day of protest. The haters are a minority and their minusculeness  should be shown up publicly. Spending time on line with others of their kind, these idiots think they have more brothers and sisters than they actually do.

In USA, FBI stats show 58% of hate crimes done against Jews, which are 1.8% of population. 18% against Muslims, 1.4% of population. 80% of hate crimes fell within race, ethnicity, ancestry or religious bias.

Rather than Jews not wearing skullcaps, how about responding like Danes did during Nazi occupation? Everyone wear one.

"If you "identify" with mythological separatist "beliefs" and "faiths",  you are living in your own fantasy" I'm an atheist. "Living in your own fantasy" should be okay as long as don't force that fantasy on others IMO. What's next? Attacks on cosplayers? 

 

Just saw this after making my own post. Agree wholeheartedly.

I'm aware, but the link I provided is quite recent. Just maybe I'm being naive, but would think that the critique of stats coming out of Germany would have been addressed by the Interior Minister by way of using empirical data

 

Check out both link provided in my posts, and links included therein. There are many takes and versions as to how attacks are tallied and associations determined. Also, different figures - and no, not all from dodgy sources.

I think the problem with these Jewish hats is that people who wear them want to show everybody around them that they are Jewish. And Jewish people and Israel are strongly connected.

Now looking at Israel and what they do to their neighbors it's not surprising that many people in this world oppose Israel. And that is similar to opposing Jews - at least some of them.

Are all Jews responsible for what the Israel government does? No. But do many Jews support Israel and it's right wing government? Yes.

 

Personally I try to live according to: live and let live. I don't harass people because of their religion or race or nationality. But every time I see groups of people walking around in Bangkok with kippas I must think about Israel and all the bad things that happen there.

 

But it seems nobody is allowed to mention this. Because saying anything against Israel and/or Jews is judged as anti-Semitic.

It seems it's impossible to criticize Israel because then Jews feel criticized and that is a no-no in this PC world.

Why do Jews want to live in Germany, after what happened in the holocaust?
