  Kanariefågeln i gruvan

Situationen för judar i Nederländerna är nu så svår att de knappast kan promenera på Amsterdams gator. Civilklädda poliser har börjat bära kippor för att gripa dem som terroriserar judarna, oftast unga muslimer. Men de gröna protesterar och menar att poliser som bär kippor faktiskt provocerar till brott… The Brussels Journal skriver:

“Decoy Jew” is a new phrase in the Netherlands. Jews are no longer safe in major Dutch cities such as Amsterdam. Since 1999, Jewish organizations in the Netherlands have been complaining that Jews who walk the Dutch streets wearing skullcaps risk verbal and physical attacks by young Muslims. Being insulted, spat at or attacked are some of the risks associated with being recognizable as a Jew in contemporary Western Europe.

Last week, a television broadcast showed how three Jews with skullcaps, two adolescents and an adult, were harassed within thirty minutes of being out in the streets of Amsterdam. Young Muslims spat at them, mocked them, shouted insults and made Nazi salutes. “Dirty Jew, go back to your own country,” a group of Moroccan youths shouted at a young indigenous Dutch Jew. “It is rather ironic,” the young man commented, adding that if one goes out in a burka one encounters less hostility than if one wears a skullcap.

In an effort to arrest the culprits who terrorize Jews, the Amsterdam authorities have ordered police officers to walk the streets disguised as Jews. The Dutch police already disguise officers as “decoy prostitutes, decoy gays and decoy grannies” to deter muggings and attacks on prostitutes, homosexuals and the elderly. Apparently sending out the decoys has helped reduce street crime. The “decoy Jew” has now been added to the police attributes.

It is often said that the Jews are the canary in the coalmine. When the Jews feel compelled to leave, the light of freedom is being extinguished. Something is badly wrong when the police need to deploy “decoy Jews.” Once again, the specter of anti-Semitism is haunting Europe. If the Europeans do not stand with the Jews, they deserve no freedom themselves and cities such as Amsterdam and Antwerp will soon be Islamic cities.

  Om barnens svåra situation

Nasrin Sjögren skriver starkt om den svåra situationen för vår tids barn. Svårigheterna börjar redan i moderlivet:

Sedan fick jag upp ögonen för de allra minsta. De som ännu inte har fötts. Men som lever. I allra högsta grad. Ofödingarna. Hur oerhört utsatta de är. Hur vi dödar dem i hundratals. Vareviga vecka. Som blir tiotusentals. År ut och år in. Vi födda kallar det för abort. Kliniskt. Praktiskt. För oss. Vad ofödingarna skulle kalla det? Det vet jag inte. Massmord. Tror jag.

  Civilisationernas kamp

Ayaan Hirsi Ali skriver om vad som förenar minaretförbudet i Schweiz, burkaförbudet i Frankrike och nu motståndet mot moskébygget på Manhattan:

What do the controversies around the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, the eviction of American missionaries from Morocco earlier this year, the minaret ban in Switzerland last year, and the recent burka ban in France have in common? All four are framed in the Western media as issues of religious tolerance. But that is not their essence. Fundamentally, they are all symptoms of what the late Harvard political scientist Samuel Huntington called the ”Clash of Civilizations,” particularly the clash between Islam and the West…
Our civilization is not indestructible: It needs to be actively defended.

Så sant. Men en effektiv kamp kräver att väst återvänder till sina kristna rötter och det känns minst sagt avlägset.
