    Maybe it’s time to stop the hate for each other with so much hate against us in the world

    The Jews must be a united nation, especially in these times!

    Where to draw the line.

    Where to draw the line.

    Because people believe various stereotypes i wouldn’t necessarily conclude that means they are anti-Semitic. For example I’m may believe many stereotypes about blacks or Mexicans but that doesn’t make me a racist, since I have no problem with them, just I believe certain things a observed about them.

    Lived in Britain all my life, and I never got affected by any type of anti – semitism.

    Polls can be very faulty and misleading. A recent ADL poll determined that 9% of the UK is anti Semitic. A different poll revealed that 83% of Brits said they had a favorable view of jews; only 7% said they had an unfavorable view. One who agreed with one of the four questions posed doesn’t necessarily have to be anti Semitic (I’m sure some jews would say they’re more loyal to Israel than the country they live in). If 45% are anti Semitic, why do only 13% believe that jews “talk too much about the holocaust in order to get… Read more »

    Over exaggerated!

    if we love one another

    so will the world.

    if we live and let live – live to hear great news about our brethren then we will come to love one another and
    it will surely follow that the world will respect us.

    apparently i am an anti-semitic jew

    Wait!

    Wait!

    Wait!

    As a Jew I also believe these statements to be true. Does that make me an anti-semite too?

    What’s so wrong about those statements?

    “Among the statements they agreed with were: “Jews chase money more than other British people,” “Jews’ loyalty to Israel makes them less loyal to Britain than other British people,” “Jews think they are better than other people,” “Jews have too
    much power in the media.”

    What a farce

    What a farce

    The most antisemitic aspect about this poll is the poll itself.

    These questions in and of themselves stoke antisemitism.

    I don’t get why anyone is surprised. Even worse, I don’t understand why you all put up with the overt antisemitism over there.

    My husband was beaten up simply for being a frum yid while stopped at a red light. HE was prosecuted under the unshakable “logic” of “you had to do something to provoke the attack.” WE LEFT BRITAIN.

    None of this is new information. With the influx of radical Muslims whose rights are over protected, Jews are fair game. These days, I can’t believe I actually have a spark of sympathy for the BNP.

    statement from the CST A neo-Nazi activist called Joshua Bonehill-Paine has announced his intention to hold an antisemitic demonstration in Stamford Hill, north London, on 22nd March. This has distressed many people due to the presence of a large Orthodox Jewish community in that part of London. CST has received several calls, emails and other messages of concern as a result. Bonehill-Paine has a track record of using social media to spread racist and abusive hoax messages. He is essentially a provocateur and has not shown the capacity to mobilise large numbers of people to attend far right events. It… Read more »

    ITS TOTAL RUBBISH.
    UK LAW FOR STARTERS DOES NOT PERMIT OPEN PUBLIC RACISM, WHICH IS AN ARRESTABLE OFFENCE AND CARRIES TERMS OF IMPRISONMENT.

    2ND, IF IT BREACHES PUBLIC ORDER AND INCITEMENT LAWS THE POLICE CAN STOP IT.

    3RD, THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY IN STAMFORD HILL ARE PEACEFUl AND THERE ARE REGULAR MEETiNGS WITH ASKANIM TO FOSTER THAT.

    Uk law does not permit open public racism??!! are you kidding me ?have you not seen all the public open displays of extreme muslims against non muslims in west? Police can stop it??!! have you not seen the police running away from fear from these extremeists? The muslim community in stamford hill does interfaith programmes with Rabbi Glick but that certainly does not mean the ones who live outside cannot come in? Please dont give over the picture of serenity and law and order here in London you cannot possibly live here.The reality is ..however much the government claims they… Read more »

    If this loser is trying to “liberate” London from Jews, I would imagine he could begin with ANY neighborhood NOT called Stamford Hill! Jews live in infinitely better and nicer places than Stamford Hill! This is nothing more than a Meshugaas!

    Antisemitic?

    Guys, are you really kidding? What’s all this paranoia about?

    I’m a jew actually orthdodox and lubavitcher and also agree with these following statements (that made half British people antiemitic…)


    Among the statements they agreed with were: “Jews chase money more than other British people,” “Jews’ loyalty to Israel makes them less loyal to Britain than other British people,” “Jews think they are better than other people,” “

    Articles of this type are a waste of time(reading them) and ink writing them. European Jews have had 70 years since WW2 ended to get out of the biggest cemetery in the world EUROPE. They didn’t and now they will begin to reap what the goyim have sowed these last 70 years. And still they moan and groan and try to make the goyim LOVE them. Albert Einstein when asked what is the definition of a crazy person said “A crazy person keeps repeating an action that doesn’t work, over and over again hoping it will turn out the way… Read more »

    #18 YOU CLEARLY DON’T KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT. REGARDING THE MEANING OF RASCISM. THOSE MUSLIMS OR EXTREMISTS SCREAMING INFIDELS AND CALLING FOR BEHEADINGS, BELIEVE IT OR NOT ARE NOT COMITTING A RASCIST ACT. I.E IF THEY WOULD HAVE BANNERS THAT STATED, OR THEY SHOUTED OUT, ANTI SEMITIC OR ANY ZENAPHOBIC REMARKS THAT IS ARRESTABLE OFFENCE. JUST CALLING PEOPLE IN GENERIC TERMS INFIDELS OR CALLING FOR. PUNISHMENTS FOR NOONE IN PARTICULAR, WHO INSULT THEIR BELIEFS, IS NOT!! IF THE UK LAW CHANGES TO INCLUDE THE ABOVE, THEN THEY WILL BE STOPPED. THERE IS A FINE LINE FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH… Read more »
