What’s the reason for Cobyn’s complaint?
Yes, yes, yes – I made a mistake. Jews in the UK number no more than about 270,000, not one million as I had it in this column, but which was right about everything else.
Thanks to the many readers who pointed this out, along with their compliments, and then asked if I could give my explanation for the anti-Semitism that drives the leader of Britain’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn. What’s his beef? What’s the reason? The two-word answer is this – there is NO REASON.
Wish there were. Then there’d be something to fix.
There’s been nothing to fix throughout the ages, and that’s the troublesome part – there was NO REASON then, and there is no reason now.
I’ve read the hundred books on anti-Semitism, all good, but no real answer. For Pharaoh, it was about our becoming “too numerous.” Hence the concern about my error.
By the way, if you think it’s really about numbers, recall the message to Jews seeking refuge from the gas chambers, as addressed through Canada’s 1940s Mackenzie King government --“none is too many.” Cute. But that’s the way it was. NO REASON. None is too many, period. Survivors had to beg their way into Canada and the United States.
A few trickled in. Six Million didn’t.
The doors were mostly closed. Now they are wide open. In Canada. Under Justin Trudeau. For Muslims.
Say a word about that and Trudeau will call you a racist, as happened to a woman in Quebec. She was immediately surrounded by tall men when she asked if tax dollars going to migrants would ever be returned to Canadian citizens. Trudeau swiftly clamped her down, as bigoted, for daring to bring up an issue about his favorite people.
Where did she think she was – in a free country?
Trudeau, fast becoming Canada’s Idi Amin, might have you arrested if you depart from his policies.
These policies include funds for Muslim rallies where imams call for the murder of all Jews.
Yes, that’s in broad daylight…in Canada…run by Liberals… and kudos to Parliamentarian Candice Bergen for her courage to speak up in front of Canada’s golden boy tyrant in Ottawa.
Thank goodness we got Trump, in the nick of time.
The Quebec woman who challenged Trudeau, with a totally logical question, was cited by the Canadian press not as a citizen exercising her rights, but as a “heckler.”
She wasn’t even Jewish. I don’t think so. A Jewish citizen of Canada might be more perplexed at the lopsided trade – none is too many for us; for them, for Muslims, it’s never enough.
Millions of them, entering legally or illegally, are being welcomed – or do I once again have a wrong number? I never was much good at math.
Trust me. If it isn’t millions today, it will be millions tomorrow.
Which takes us to a column I wrote some time ago titled – “Germany replenishes itself with six million Muslims.” Catch that number? What an odd way of making amends.
But we were talking about the UK…
I’ve read the hundred articles about Corbyn and still searching for the incident that triggered him off.
Was it a dispute about a trespassing dog…a teacher, a neighbor, a business partner who done him wrong…a doctor, a lawyer…anybody?
Did someone run over his cat? Did his dentist pull the wrong tooth? A bad haircut?
I can’t find anything. Not even a clue. Someone here mentions Corbyn’s top ten gaffes. Well done. But where’s the beef?
Corbyn sticks out because he could become prime minister, another Trudeau/Idi Amin, and even if he goes no further, he’s gone far enough.
Why after a thousand years of loyalty are Jews a separate topic…once again…over and over again?
No reason. That’s why we called it “hatred without cause” for centuries – including this one.
