Hungarian leaders say they keep Jews safe by keeping out Muslim immigrants

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 06:00 AM PST


Via Times of Israel:
At a conference about anti-Semitism in Europe, senior Hungarian officials said the absence of violence against Jews in their country owed to its refusal to admit Muslim immigrants.

The assertion, which at least one Jewish expert on anti-Semitism disputed, came amid criticism of Prime Minister Viktor Orban's right-wing government by other European leaders of his immigration policy, and a dispute between the Hungarian leader and some Jewish community leaders who accuse Orban of encouraging or tolerating anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Whereas other European countries have seen jihadist terrorist attacks against Jews and others in recent years, "Hungary has been consistently able to protect its citizens and residents, its borders and its fundamental elements of statehood from mass immigration and international terrorism," Minister of State for Security Policy István Mikola said Wednesday at an event in Budapest titled "Are Europe's Jews Safe?" and organized by the Hungarian Jewry's watchdog on anti-Semitism, the Action and Protection Foundation.

Csaba Latorkai, deputy state secretary for priority social affairs, noted the 2015 killing of a Jewish security guard in Denmark by an Islamist along with other attacks, including the murder of 137 people in Paris by other Islamists later that year.

"Taking security and administrative measures to prevent such acts, the Hungarian government acted, and so in the autumn of 2015 it decided to set up a border fence, introduced a legal closing of borders," Latorkai said in his speech, adding it was "in order to protect citizens and make Hungary one of the most secure places in world. No one should be afraid that there may be attacks on our streets."

(...)

The chairman of the Action and Protection Foundation, Daniel Bodnar, said at the conference that while ant-Semitic violence remains extremely rare in Hungary, the country has seen anti-Semitic rhetoric proliferating over the past decade, notably through the far-right Jobbik party and its affiliated media.

In 2016 and 2015, his foundation recorded 23 and 53 incidents in Hungary, which has approximately 100,000 Jews, with no physical assaults of individuals. It has initiated dozens of criminal cases since its establishment in 2012.

Germany: Jews stop wearing Kippot due to Muslim attacks

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 04:47 AM PST


Via Jerusalem Post:
Members of the small Jewish community in the West German city of Bochum announced that they will no longer wear kippot because of attacks on them by Muslim youths.

(...)

The news outlet Radio Bochum first reported that a representative of the community said members will stop wearing kippot in public because they are routinely faced with insults on public streets when they are recognized as Jews.

"Muslim youths attacked people of the Jewish faith," the segment said.

Bochum is an industrial city in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia with a population of nearly 365,000. Bochum's Jewish community, which includes the towns of Herne and Hattingen, numbers over 1,000.

(...)

Bochum has been a hotspot for anti-Israel hatred. In 2014, some 120 activists marched to Bochum's city hall chanting "Israel, child murderers" and "Allahu Akbar." The anti-Israel demonstrators protested Israel's war to stop the Islamic organization Hamas's rocket attacks on Israeli territory.

Italy bars Palestinian terrorist and BDS advocate Leila Khaled

Posted: 30 Nov 2017 01:30 AM PST


Via The Jerusalem Post (Benjamin Weinthal):
Convicted Palestinian terrorist Leila Khaled was barred from entering Italy on Wednesday on the grounds that she lacked a valid visa.

Olga Deutsch, Europe Desk director at the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor, told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday: "We applaud Italy's decision to deny entry to infamous terrorist Leila Khaled at Rome's Fiumicino Airport, the same place from which she once hijacked an airliner.  As a research institute, NGO Monitor documented Khaled's September 2017 speech at the European Parliament and alerted senior EU officials. We have long warned European governments that they have been funding radical, politicized NGOs, including those linked to the PFLP terror group and which were involved with Khaled's event."

She added, "We hope that Italy's move, coming on the heels of European Parliament President Tajani's decision to bar terror-linked individuals and organizations from EU premises, signals a new awareness among European leadership, and that it leads European Institutions and governments to reexamine policies that fund such NGOs".

Khaled, a member of the US- and EU-designated terrorist entity Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), has conducted speaking tours across Europe over the years to promote the abolition of Israel and the spread of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaign.
