I understand EXACTLY what you are saying my friend and I am sorry that ATS has allowed such blatant anti-semetic posts and threads. I have fought
them at every turn when I see them, in fact I have lost over 6000 points already in the last week over Israel's RIGHTFUL invasion of Gaza.
I think the funniest part (funny as in sad not HAHA) is the people that are siding with Hamaz are siding with a Known Terror group a people that have
a culture of death including killing Rape victims, including maltreatment of women, including Human Rights Watch Org saying Hamas is using children
for shields, including a group that uses handicapped to carry out what the cowards at the top won't do, suicide bombings.
So I let them side with the terrorists and I am keeping track of those that praise Hamas for the Department of Homeland Security. I will report anyone
that takes a stand with terror groups that are threatening Americans and Jews.
I want you to know that the Majority of these anti-semite comments and terror backing comments are coming out of Europe and the middle east and not
coming out of America. I want you to know that America and Americans support Israels Right to exist and your Right to live without fear of terrorists
attacks on your peoples.
Shalom my friend, and do not be surprised at Europe's actions in this matter, they are the ones that refused to help Jews throughout history and it
appears that outside of Germany (interesting) nothing has changed in Europe.
Remember the Prophets have spoken about these times and the fact that Israel will stay and stand and Zephaniah talked about those nations coming
against Israel's Borders and what would happen to them, so trust in Hashem and worry not what the ungodly say my friend!!!
Shalom and stay safe my friend!
As silly as it gets, really! Most people here don't side with anyone. Just because one disagrees with Israel's policy, does not make one a
'terrorist supporter'. Please learn to accept some criticism.
I don't even want to get into who's to blame (as far as I'm concerned all parties involved behave like irresponsible children) but I do feel
compelled to react against your revisionist stance on the history of antisemitism. Let's take a look WWII and the years leading up to the crisis:
while some Europeans did report Jews to the Germans (in their eyes not unlike your reporting people to Homeland Security), many also risked life and
limb by hiding and sheltering them. What did America do? Ever heard about the plight of the SS St. Louis? Take a wild guess at how many Jewish people
were granted asylum in the US the years before and during the war? Approx. 21000, that's less than Switzerland. Switzerland, you know, that country
with the mountains, Nazi-gold and very little place to live.
Anti-semitism was a big problem before WWII, but that was the case both in the US and in Europe. To me it seems rather easy to say that Jews were
prosecuted more intensely in occupied Europe when your country simply refused those people access. So please, keep your self-righteousness to yourself
and go read a history book.
I live in a European city with the largest group of Chassidic Jews outside Israel (that is, a bigger community than the one in NYC). This group has
lived here for centuries, with little to no problems (except for WWII, when this country was occupied by the Germans). As a matter of fact, just to be
on the sure side, Jewish schools, synagogues and community centers get extra police protection whenever there's a conflict in the Middle East. But
I'm sure you know the situation in Europe a lot better than Europeans do. I would insert a clever Biblical quote here to prove how right I am, but
none comes to mind.
