The Conference of European Rabbis are starting to panic as anti-Semitic sentiment is allegedly sweeping through Europe. European rabbis are now calling for the entire continent to pass laws against what they call “hate speech” against Jews, the Times of Israel reports. That is, they want to ban criticism of Jews throughout the entire continent by placing any such criticism under this Orwellian heading of speech which is banned because it could potentially hurt someone’s feelings.
These demands were formalized in a resolution passed Thursday the standing committee of the Conference of European Rabbis (CER), which met this week in Tbilisi, Georgia.
“We call on additional countries to follow the example set by France and Germany, and devise legislation that targets hate speech against Jews specifically,” CER President Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt said Friday. They are literally trying to make it illegal to mention them, as if they don’t even exist. It’s isn’t called hate-speech or whatever when the Germans or the French get lashed in the media. In a world where one must restrict its mouth and think twice before saying something, you can no longer pretend to have freedom of speech and to live in a free and democratic country. You know for sure that a tyranny of some sort is in power.
They have apparently succeeded in this, for the time being, in the UK, where a man named Garron Helm presently rots in prison just for having dared to identify UK MP Luciana Berger as being Jewish. But that is right now in the process of backfiring as thousands are protesting on Twitter for this injustice.
French philosopher Voltaire put it right 200 years ago with his legendary conclusion on how to find a tyrant: “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”
