The return of Nazi-style anti-Semitism? A recent incident in Antwerp, Belgium is demonstrative of this phenomenon.
Last month, a local Jewish woman and her Israeli girlfriend (the two are in an homosexual relationship) were assaulted by neighbors after daring to openly identify themselves as Jews by placing a mezuzah on the door of their apartment.
Belgian Jewish magazine Joods Actueel reported that at first, the assailants confined themselves to banging on the walls and shouting “stinking Jews.” But that didn’t last long, and the anti-Semites’ appetite soon led them to breaking down the apartment door and beating the local Jewish woman to the point that she required hospitalization for 15 days.
As the Jewish woman was being taken away by an ambulance, she reportedly saw the responding police officers joking and laughing with the unrepentant assailants.
The assailants later stated that they had come “to finish what the Nazis started,” according to lawyer Mischael Modrikamen. Israel Today wrote about Modrikamen last year after he launched a pro-Israel political party in Belgium.
No one is under the illusion that anti-Semitism died after the Nazi Holocaust. But for decades following that dark chapter, it was certainly taboo to openly express anti-Semitic positions or demonstrate anti-Semitic behavior.
It would seem with the escalation in anti-Semitic incidents in the West of late that what was once taboo is again socially acceptable, at least to enough of a degree for anti-Semites to once again openly peddle their particular brand of hate.
The Antwerp incident and the police reaction to it “sounds like something from 1930s Germany,” Joel Rubinfeld, co-chair of the European Jewish Parliament, was quoted as saying by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
One of the chief enablers of this renewed wave of anti-Semitism has been has been the rise of anti-Israel sentiment, or anti-Zionism. Conveniently cloaked as “legitimate” criticism of the State of Israel, anti-Zionism in fact takes aim at the hopes and dreams the Jewish people harbored for thousands of years as they suffered in foreign lands. In essence, it says that the Jews deserve, at best, persecution and exile.

For the past five years, News That Matters has called a spade a spade. Nazism is back in Europe. It comes by a silent acceptance of Islamic lies. Not only in regards to who God is, but also in regards to the defamation of the Jewish people and the state of Israel.
The fruits of Islam is obvious, for all who open their eyes and take a look at the World affairs. You can also read the Koran, and see for your self. More than 160 verses in the Koran demand Jihad from every faithful Muslim.
Many peoples will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.’ The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
When you call God of Israel a liar, you become the enemy of God of the Bible. When you do not understand what Jesus the Messiah is doing in our generation, you become disconnected from Him. Many claimed to be “Christians” deny that you can see God’s hand in the restoration of Israel, and that human beings are being lead by the Holy Spirit to say so.
Where do you stand?
Are you one of the lukewarm Christians, who keep mum when today’s Nazi-styled supporters of Islam commits the same crimes as the Nazis did in Europe?
Shame on you. Repent. Make a u-turn, and obey the truth.
Stand up for the Jewish people. Stand up for the Jews right to live in Judea and Samaria. Stand up for a united and liberated Jerusalem.
