“Britain’s Synagogues Have Never Been Fuller”


American Jews are giving mightily to Israel. Is there enough giving left to go around? – Jewish Telegraphic Agency (jta.org)

Our lives have changed forever. We have had to change not just the way we think of Israel but how we think of Britain. The past month has exposed an ugly underside. We once thought we lived in a tolerant society. Now we are asking: ‘Can we safely share our Jewishness here?’, and ‘do we belong?’

As Jews we are familiar with tragedy, threat and betrayal. ‘Always make sure you have your passport in date’, my mother used to tell me. Fortunately, today we are still very far from escape. But the recent rise in anti-Semitism makes us feel like we have moved another step closer.

In the darkest times, however, is when the embers of the Jewish spirit burn brightest. Amidst the tragic loss of life and bloodshed, there are revolutions starting. There is a revolution of Jewish identity and unity.

Although security threats are at their highest, the synagogues have never been fuller. ‘We’ve not seen our synagogue this full since the Pittsburg shooting’, noticed a friend, with a sad laugh. Charities distribute thousands of shabbat candles every Friday, WhatsApp groups encourage psalms to be recited around the clock and hundreds of women gather each week to bake ceremonial challa bread and pray. One local barber, for the first time ever, vowed to close his shop on Shabbat as a sign of solidarity. Members of the community vow to support his business in return.

‘I have never felt my Jewishness the way I do right now’, said a lady, at the kosher butcher, buying chicken soup: ‘Ironically just when we’re under attack.’ Another ex-colleague reached out to me. She had never embraced her Jewish heritage before but now she feels she has to ‘pick a side’. She feels the pain of being vilified and misunderstood but feels that it is worth it. …

Pressure builds daily as Israel loses global sympathy and the bloody conflict unfolds. Friends in Israel feel supported there and weirdly they feel safer, even when they run into their bomb shelters. Their sense of connection makes them feel alive. The Jewish community’s unity now feels even stronger in contrast to the splintered in-fighting about Israel’s judicial reform that was rampant prior to the attack. This month, these differences have been put on hold. Faith and togetherness are our community’s protection against threat and we have to cling to them with all our might.[1]

    Who is truly Jewish? Do they consider Trump’s daughter Jewish? What about the “black Hebrews” in Chicago and half-Korean Marcus Epstein? Whoopi Goldberg?

    Some of them insist that they accept converts. Does the Cohen tribe accept converts or allow its women to marry outsiders?

    Jews would be easier to interact with if learning just what it is that their group organism truly believes in, acts for, and protects.

    Jewess Yellen urged US & EU to pump even more billions into Jew Zelenski’s murderous madness. https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2023-10-16/yellen-says-u-s-will-fight-to-ensure-robust-economic-aid-for-ukraine

    It has now been agreed that America will pay two billion, Germany one billion and the EU as a whole as much as 20 billion. Sweden, which has a small population and will soon be a member of NATO thanks to Jew Blinken, will pay 350 million alone. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/eus-20-billion-euro-plan-ukraine-military-aid-hits-resistance-2023-11-10/

    …did I say Germany pays (“only”) 1 billion? https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/germany-set-double-its-ukraine-military-aid-under-scholz-plan-bloomberg-news-2023-11-12/

    A commenter: “The left-green government in Berlin wants to double military aid for Ukraine from from four billion to eight [!] billion euros in the coming year. The budget committee of the Bundestag still has to approve this, but who doubts it. Presumably it was also pressure from pressure from Washington to provide more support to the corrupt and now dictatorial leadership in Kiev so that they could now also send women and old men old men to die on the front line. Because in the USA resistance to even more money for Kiev.”

    Rinse and repeat.
    The Jews scheme to open the borders to the third world in every land they infect. Then, once the inevitable turmoil occurs and they themselves become targets of these unassimilable aliens, they jump ship and scurry to the next host to begin the process all over again. Well, the world is much smaller now and most nations are catching on to what the jews truly are and do.
    Personally, I don’t care what (((they))) do and where (((they))) go. My concern is how all of the infected Western lands are going to begin the process of DEPORTING all of the forever foreigners in their prospective countries.

      What I’ve come to realise is… they won’t be deported. The foreigners will simply have children with the native whites. And the natives will cease to exist.

      But we might have European societies in eastern Europe. The mixing is so bad, today, that the old US concept of Nordic is in short supply. Maybe some part of the world will be safe for Nordics, Australia? There’d need to be some movement to consciously preserve such people.

    The unresisting submission of the (anti-)German functional elite to Israel’s dictates is, psychologically speaking, a kind of passive-aggressive defiant reaction familiar from a (seemingly) powerless victim against a (seemingly) all-powerful perpetrator: “You can rape me and take what you want, but you’ll never get real love and honest commitment from me!” There has been a kind of tacit agreement to only ever say yes, without ever even considering a no, because anything else would be considered “anti-Semitic” anyway.

    P.S. Of course, this is all just highly mendacious and hypocritical, because who in the world needs such false “friends”? (Only Israel! Because only Israel doesn’t care whether its “friends” are total liars and hypocrites, as long as it is able to assert its power, dominance, rights and interests at the expense of all these embarrassing honorless wimps and failures.)
