British Anti-Judaism

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk


British Hate

   It is no exaggeration to say that the British Jewish community is now under daily attack and has about the same standing as did the German Jews at the end of the 1920’s, shortly before the Nazis came to power on January 31, 1933.

    The leaders in this constant barrage of anti-Jewish hate are the British media, particularly England’s largest newspaper, The Guardian, and other daily papers, as well as the British Broadcasting Company, which is government sponsored.

    There are about 300,000 Jews in England, Scotland and Wales out of a population of 61 million. Evidently, this is so small a number that most Englishmen have never seen a Jew, but is large enough to make Jews the targets of incessant attack.

     These attacks have now become physical in that children and adults are beaten in the streets and on public conveyances. For example, a 12-year-old Jewish girl, Jasmine Kranat, while riding a bus,  was so badly injured from a beating by a gang of teenage girls that they injured her eye socket, stomped on her head and chest and knocked her unconscious. None of the passengers helped the child and the bus driver acted as if he had seen and heard nothing.

     Jewish gravestones are overthrown in British cemeteries all the time and ugly remarks are painted on synagogue doors and other Jewish establishments, so that synagogues need security guards at all times. 

      Hitler’s Mein Kampf (My Struggle) is sold on British streets, as are The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

     All of this is encouraged by the media, who are repeating all the ancient canards about Jews and Jewish influence, etc., every day. These media accuse Jews of disloyalty to England but also to the United States. They rant that all Jews are “traitors” and in Nazi style threaten to get even with the Jews. The journal The New Statesman labels Jews “the kosher conspiracy”.

      Meanwhile the Church of England spews the hate filled accusation that all Jews are “Christ killers” in weekly sermons and pamphlets (this is the Episcopal church in the U.S.) and claims that “the Jews” covertly control the media, the U.S.A. and British foreign policy. The church also claims that God hates all Jews and that all promises made to the Jews according to the Bible now devolve upon Christians instead.

     Israel is daily maligned in a manner that only a medieval fanatic could match. Included are such comments as “shame on all Jews, may your lives be cursed.” The churches and the media also deny the Holocaust, which is referred to as “the so-called Holocaust.” Furthermore, those who admit that there was a Holocaust blame the Jews for their own destruction on the grounds of the “Christ killer” charge.

     The British Broadcasting Company has sunk so low that they even claim that the killings in Gaza by different Arab factions are also the fault of the Jews. The newspapers also publish daily anti-Jewish comments by readers, such as attacks on the Talmud, which reputedly tells Jews to kill Christians.

     British academics make common cause with the worst Arab terrorists under the slogan “we are all Hezbollah now.” The mayor of London, Ken Livingston, publicly embraced the terrorist Yusuf al-Qaradawi and accused the then prime minister, Tony Blair, of being influenced by a cabal of Jewish advisers.

    Boycotts of Jewish owned business are now common in England, reminding us of the boycott of Jews' stores by Nazi troopers in early 1933.

    As usual, there are “leftist” Jews who side with the haters of Israel in a vain effort to save their own skins. These self haters haven’t learned that this occurred in Germany also and that the Nazis killed the Jewish Jew haters as well as all other Jews.

    Several non-Jewish writers, such as Richard Littlejohn and Paul Mann, have sought a British publisher to publish a book they have written about this hate. No British publisher is willing to publish this or any book concerning Jews or British bigotry.

     In view of all this, it is entirely possible that the Jewish community in England will not be able to remain there, and, like the Russian Jews of the 1970’s, will have to leave for Israel and the United States.

      The history of British hatred of Jews is ancient. In the middle ages the British, like all Europeans, claimed Jews drink the blood of Christians and eat Christian children at Passover. In 1290, the British expelled all Jews from England. No Jews were admitted until the reign of Oliver Cromwell in 1656.

      Thereafter, the Jewish community grew slowly in England. Nevertheless, as I have shown in my book, The Restoration of Israel, some Englishmen were indeed helpful in promoting the independence of Israel in 1948.

      Since then the assault upon the Jewish community in England now resembles the worst hate mongering endured by European Jews since the fall of Nazi Germany. This is not to say that things are much better in other European countries. Sixty-seven years after murdering 6 million Jews the Europeans find that that was not enough. Now they hope to kill the remaining 2 million still living on that bloody continent.

     There was a time when England was viewed by many as “the mother of democracy”. All those liberties which are enshrined in our Constitution had come from England, including religious liberty. Today, the British people have thrown overboard the Western tradition of toleration and support for even the smallest minority, the Jews. Hate now dominates England and murder is not far away.

      In order to justify genocide one must first distance oneself from the eventual targets and demonize them so that it finally appears right to begin the killings. The English haven’t reached that level of atrocity yet. However, unless the current campaign of hate is reversed soon, any depression or other social catastrophe can give the world another Holocaust. This time in England.

Shalom u’vracha.
