I'm pretty sure most terrorist bombings in Europe are Muslim induced. What are the people in Europe thinking when they villainize Jews? Someone should explain to them that radical Muslims are out to destroy all of Western civilization, not just Israel and Jews.

In my lifetime, the U.S. has been a relatively safe haven but as evidenced by the Adas Torah synagogue riot, this could be changing. I hope we wake up and punish the violent mobs before it's too late.

So European Jews are coming around to the idea that Marxism hurts?

What took so fucking long?

I have great sympathy for Tanya and Jews around the world. I am a proud philosemite with Israeli friends and colleagues. I have been to Israel three times including during the second Intifada. My Israeli friends have shown themselves to be generous, true friends with warm hospitality that I have not experienced beyond my fellow church members in the USA. I attended a Jewish medical school and learned a bit of Yiddish and came to appreciate even more the culture of Judaism. Christians must stand proudly with Jews across the world. I have recently studied the Book of Romans where the Apostle Paul indicates that God will NEVER be done with the Jewish people.

The majority of Americans support the Jewish people and detest Hamas and their ilk. Our major universities are cess pools of liberalism and hatred and the professors are teaching our kids their doctrine. I pray every night for our Jewish brethren in Israel and the IDF to eliminate Hamas. I firmly believe Israel will win this battle because God gave Israel to his his chosen people, the Jews.

Sad to see the Jewish community falliing to the same victimhood mentality we call woke.

This isn’t about the Brits. It is about the Muslim savages who moved in. This is now the core of anti-semitism in Europe.

Excellent essay. Thank you.

Ironic (but maybe not British ironic…) that you call out far-left Brit Jews, but regularly promote far-left Ha’aretz Jews on your Twitter (so-called “X”) feed….

Thank you for writing this. Ever grateful for the voices of The FP speaking into this moment.

I have a historical question (sincerely, not argumentatively): I believe Bulgaria also exited WWII with more Jews at the end than she had at the start of the war? (See “The Fox and the Fuhrer” on YouTube.) So I was surprised to read Britain is the “only intact community in Europe” without a list in Yad Vashem? Or is this - and I don’t mean this insensitively - because of the territories of Thrace and Macedonia being considered part of the Bulgarian population?

Yes, the communist times were the second wave of aalyiah from Romania. We always suffered under the great bear( Russia) or any another around us.all balcans are like that. But for once, between 1939-1944 we were the perpetrators, for nothing different than today in UK, blame the Jews for everything that goes wrong.we were not occupied, we were allies with Hitler and he never asked us to deport them.or to kill them....it took many years to put it in the official books . And yes, it is very documented by American sources too .I just didn't know to look it up. Or to ask the questions. But I m glad I ve learned. For times like this.

Tanya, not sure you will read this, but I am a Christian with strong ties to the ten Boom family who hid Jews from the Nazi’s in Haarlem, Holland until caught and sent to Ravensbruk themselves. It has never crossed my mind to think poorly of any Jew anywhere and I am enraged by the rise of antisemitism everywhere. I have never once thought of Jews as Christ killers. I cannot deny that they, with a great deal of help from Rome, put Jesus to death. But his death is central to my faith and my faith is built upon the foundation of Israel. So we disagree re/ who was Messiah & the form he would take. That changes nothing about Israel’s ancient (read Genesis) promise of the actual land and I will stand up, therefore in support of the state of Israel and of Jews all over the world. I do not think I am alone. I grieve for how you are feeling now. It must be horrific. Just let me say this: any Christian who speaks against you is no Christian at all.

The advantage of U.S stands loud and clear here (or at least the states where you can carry outside your home). You will feel much more free to wear yarmulka, or carry a Israeli flag, if you carried a gun at the same time.

Also, it is a warning to all sane countries - do not let any more Muslims in. It is too risky.

This is so beautifully written. It's heartbreaking. I am in the US, in a part of the country where there will blessedly be none of these demonstrations or pogroms. I only watch these things from a safe place, and I am not a Jew. But, if they were here and you were here or I was there, I would stand with you holding your flag.
