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

Totally against attacking anyone, of any faith,  but I do favour "when in Rome". Here I do many things as it's 'here' and if I went to Israel and was visiting a synagogue I would wear what was required to appease the locals.

Nothing has changed over the last 2000 years where jews were persecuted, demonised, slaughtered, waged war upon them by mighty armies, over and over, exiled from their homeland numerous times just because they are Jews, and now in the US and other countries there's a resurrections of anti jewish sentiments, can anyone say why? no, not really, when the world need to hate someone, there are always the jews for it...

"Just because they are Jews"? Are Jews behaving just like everybody else? Are there differences between Christians, Muslims, Buddhists and Jews? Yes. Not everybody likes Muslims and it seems that is acceptable for many. So why is it not acceptable that some people don't like some Jews? We are not all the same. That is of course not a reason to fight each other. But pretending there are no differences and no reason is unrealistic.

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

They like you and me should be free to live anywhere they choose free from persecution. The recent influx of violent Muslim refugees has created a hostile atmosphere for Jewish people in some towns and cities in Europe, not just Germany.

What stinks here is that the police issue a warning to Jews effectively telling them to watch their backs.

Why the #&£% aren’t the police and army out there on the streets of Europe’s wealthiest country protecting them (and their own women and girls for that matter) to prevent more racial injustices?

That’s why I say it’s important to remind the haters that they are in the minority in the real world.

You don't think the counter protesters can be classed as 'haters'?

I don't much like any religious extremists, or even just 'devout'.

Same, same. But if they want to believe in fairytales and leave me alone I will leave them alone.

It's like seeing some drunks in a bar. If they are harmless then let them do what they are doing.

At least he quoted and posted a link about it.

 

Somehow you rarely post links about any topics.

No answer so you post the confused emoji yet again.

 

You really need to improve your communication skills by saying what confuses you.

What's this?
Polite antisemitism?
So all Jews are the same and behave the same?
That's what you think?

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.
Funny.
Nobody is allowed?
You just did and I see more than once.
Yes many Jew haters use Israel demonization as a cover.
But the Nazi white supremacist types need no such cover.
Its funny. Jew haters have always been with us. When there was an Israel and when there wasn't.
The Jew haters always find a way.
If Jews didn't exist they'd have to invent them.
In fact some of the most antisemitic nations in the world don't have many or any Jews living there

Sure thing, you "know" the reason why some Jews wear them. How you know this, is not explained. That it makes part of their religious beliefs, is not addressed. No, "surprisingly" for you this is about Israel, plus the usual dodgy excuses, as to why because of that, such things are justified.

 

As for the standard issue blanket argument about no-criticism-allowed - you just did, and you do so on other topics as well. Same goes for other posters. Each and every topic mentioning either Israel or Jews gets its fair share of strong commentary from posters seeing things your way.
