(I ran this post on February 10, 2015. An appellate court in Germany has affirmed the ruling of the trial court, finding that the arson attack on the Synagogue was a justified expression of criticism of the policies of Israel. An appellate court in the Third Reich could not have improved on this justification of violence against Jews.)
My advice to Jews in Germany, get out while you can:
A German court in the city of Wuppertal convicted two German Palestinians on Thursday of an arson attack on a Synagogue but denied the crime was motivated by anti-Semitism, prompting Green Party deputy Volker Beck to urge the court to designate the act as anti-Semitic.
The Wuppertal court sentenced the two men, ages 24 and 29, to a suspended prison term of one year and three months. The two men, along with an 18-year-old juvenile, in July tossed Molotov cocktails at the synagogue in Wuppertal, a city in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia with a population of nearly 344,000. The court ordered all three to perform 200 hours of community service.
Beck said on Saturday the “attack on the Synagogue was motivated by anti-Semitism” and blasted the court for issuing a decision stating that the goal of the attack was to bring “attention to the Gaza conflict.” Israel, last summer, was involved a 50-day war in the Gaza Strip.
“This is a mistaken decision as far as the motives of the perpetrators are concerned. Therefore, I have written the prosecutor and called for the filing of a legal objection,” he said, adding that the burning of a synagogue in Germany because of the Middle East conflict can be attributed only to anti-Semitism.
“What do Jews in Germany have to do with the Middle East conflict? Every bit as much as Christians, non-religious people or Muslims in Germany, namely, absolutely nothing. The ignorance of the judiciary toward anti-Semitism is for many Jews in Germany especially alarming.”
Go here to read the rest. In the days of the Weimar Republic, Nazis who committed crimes, Hitler was a prime example of this, were given slap on the wrists sentences if their offenses could be interpreted as having a political motivation that the court thought praise-worthy. This is precisely what happened in this case. Europe in general is becoming a dark place for Jews as Islamic “immigrants” make their lives a living hell, often aided and abetted by home grown anti-Semites. So, I think the Jews of Europe in general should be looking for a place of refuge. This advice I would also give to believing Christians in Europe. The hateful forces that use Jews as scapegoats never stop with Jews, but sooner or later attack Christians.
