And we are supposed to care?

Perhaps the old (((French))) woman should have cried Holocaust while her fellow !Frenchmen! were stabbing her to death. Surely the magic words would have saved her from the inchoate evils of anti-Semitism!
An 85-year-old woman who as a child narrowly escaped France’s most notorious wartime roundup of Jews has been murdered in Paris, and the authorities are calling it a hate crime.

The body of the woman, Mireille Knoll, was found on Friday in her apartment in the city’s working-class 11th arrondissement. She had been stabbed to death, and her body was partly burned after her attackers apparently tried to set fire to the apartment.

The Paris prosecutor’s office said on Monday that Ms. Knoll had been killed because of the “membership, real or supposed, of the victim of a particular religion” — a roundabout way of saying she was killed because she was Jewish....

Francis Kalifat, the head of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France, said, “This makes one feel something absolutely terrible. She escaped the anti-Semitism of the Nazis, but in the end her destiny followed her because she was killed because of anti-Semitism.”
No, she was killed because her fellow Jews have been aggressively pushing open immigration into the West for nearly 100 years. There is certainly an amount of irony involved, but it isn't the irony that the media wishes to perpetrate.

"Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies [sic] that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive."
- Barbara Lerner Spectre

Apparently Ms Spectre and Mr. Soros didn't think through what "the throes of that transformation" would necessarily involve. Or perhaps they simply didn't care about their lesser co-nationals. Because the "rise of anti-Semitism" across Europe and in the USA is nothing more than a massive Jewish own goal of historic proportions with nightmarish potential. And none of the Western nations being adulterated and devastated by the policies advocated by these (((diasporans))) are going to shed any tears for them this time.

For example, I tend to doubt this woman, who fled Sweden as a result of the very immigration championed by Ms Spectre and Mr. Soros, is going to be particularly amenable to the usual sob stories. Watch the whole interview. She makes it very clear that the situation in Sweden is considerably worse than the media is reporting and I do not imagine that she appreciates those who have taken a leading role in making it happen.

This is why a strong and stable Israel is absolutely vital if the omni-destructive anti-Semitic cycle is ever to be shut down for good. Israel is skin in the game, as NN Taleb would put it. That is something that rootless (((nomads))) like (((Simon Schama))) and (((Jonathan Weisman))) observably lack.
There is nothing wrong, as Weisman counsels, with Jews standing shoulder to shoulder with those most damaged and threatened by tribalist populism, as Jews like Abraham Joshua Heschel did in the heyday of the civil rights movement. Ultimately, though, what is needed is an aggressive defense of those things that not so long ago could be taken for granted in America, and under which Jewish life has prospered to a degree unique in the world: the integrity of the democratic process, the protections of the Constitution and the preservation of the ideal of a “nation of immigrants,” a phrase just deleted from the Immigration Service’s mission statement.
Yes, there is something absolutely wrong with it, (((Mr. Schama))). There is something more than wrong with it, as it is literal treachery if we are to take your pretenses to citizenship at face value. And speaking as an American Indian, I can testify with authority that the USA was never a “nation of immigrants”. That is self-serving 20th-century (((immigrant))) propaganda. So, shed no tears for the deceivers who sow the seeds of their own destruction.

As Buzz Mohawk wrote at Steve Sailer's site: We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of Citizens descended from pioneers who wrote the Constitution to secure the blessings of Liberty for themselves and for their Posterity, for us.

To paraphrase one commenter here, you may recall that the Jews did not become Egyptians despite having lived in Egypt for 300 years. They did not become Canaanites after invading Canaan, and they did not become Palestinians after immigrating to Palestine. So, why would you ever imagine that a mere generation or three of residence in the United States would make them real Americans?

All of Western Europe is in serious trouble, but the French compounded their woes by being the first to adopt civic nationalism.

In French thinking, you're "French" by virtue of having a French passport, even if you're a semi-retarded Mandinka from the slums of Dakar. Nota bene, this isn't just a legal fiction, many French people actually believe Algerian hookah-huffers and the kind of plate-lipped primitive tribesmen Tintin used to rough up are in some real sense "French".

On the other hand, the Frogs have an encouraging history of manning the barricades when they feel enough is enough. If anyone is going to be the first in Western Europe to put a stop to multicult, my money's on les miserables.

"the integrity of the democratic process, the protections of the Constitution and the preservation of the ideal of a “nation of immigrants,”"

How is the third in any way related to the previous two points, how is perpetual immigration conducive to any form of stability, and of the three, which is most likely to destructively conflict with the two others?

And why are the people who were almost destroyed by anti-Christian pan-national super-states so damnably and foolishly addicted to them?

Finally, if monocultural Europe is bad and multicultural Europe - like the Balkans for example - is good, why not immigrate to the latter? If whites are bad and European-ness is bad and monocultural, monoethnic states are bad, why do people reliably gravitate toward them? And why are those people both refugees and economic migrants? Shouldn't their homelands be better rather than worse? Why isn't the flow of people the exact opposite?

On that note, I had some Algerino type making “music” under my window and I happened to need to get some bottled water from the supermarket right below my building. As I came out the door of the palazzo I caught his eye and simply said
“You’re not gonna be there long are you?”
His lip trembled as he said “no”.

A culture is were a group of people all agree on something, a nexus of belief. Multi-culture is were people don't agree. "Multi-culture" is an oxymoron, an inherent contradiction like "jumbo shrimp."

It would eliminate the only legal rule that protects sellers of firearms in the United States — unlike every other market in the world.

We have been fed two pieces of propaganda posing as history. The first is that 6 millions jews were killed in German occupied territory during WWII. The second is how efficiently deadly the German haters were. Given that there were only about 6 million jews in the whole of Europe in 1938, every jew in Europe would have had to be exterminated. And yet, we have "holocaust survivors" still alive 73 years after the end of WWII. An estimated total of up to 300,000 jews. Including an 85 year old woman, up until 3 days ago. Hmmmm. I've got to say that the Germans need some lessons in extermination from the muslims. Maybe that's why Merkel and company brought them into Germany?

So, she was born in '42 or '43. Still that is some supreme irony there: survive's the Holocaust and then gets offed by some Moops 70 some years later.

"Apparently Ms Spectre and Mr. Soros didn't think through what "the throes of that transformation" would necessarily involve. Or perhaps they simply didn't care about their lesser co-nationals. "

That woman from Sweden does not understand that the Moops turned against her; they are colonizing Sweden. That's what the mosque construction and calls to prayer are all about.

This is an interesting comment. I'm sick of having that "nation of immigrants" slur thrown in my face when I talk about immigration restriction, as I'm sure many others here are.

But is this a winning retort?

"We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of Citizens descended from pioneers who wrote the Constitution to secure the blessings of Liberty for themselves and for their Posterity, for us."

Is that true? What percent of Americans can trace some part of their heritage to the founding stock, vs. not?

It *was* certainly true at some point in the past, but now? I have my doubts.

Would anyone make that statement about California, for instance? It would seem sort of preposterous to do so. It might still be true in some places, like Vermont and Maine, but equally it's not true in lots of others. And, if you take the USA as a whole, I have my doubts.

My ancestors weren't immigrants, they were conquerors. My ancestors conquered the savages, took their land, and offered salvation and civilization to the survivors.

If your family were immigrants, your mommy is calling and it's time to go home.

@66: "So, she was born in '42 or '43. Still that is some supreme irony there: survive's the Holocaust and then gets offed by some Moops 70 some years later."

'32 or '33.

"If your family were immigrants, your mommy is calling and it's time to go home."

And if your family are perpetual wanderers, it's time for you to start moving along.

> No, they mean Not-whatevers. So, for example, a Mexican immigrant with US citizenship is an !American!.

Always nice to see computer geekdom bleed into popular culture. In many commonly-used programming languages, '!' is the logical negation operator. It dates back to "C", probably earlier.

Yes, I think you are supposed to care. Because we are not savages, and people, what ever their inherited characteristics have immutable value (you are a Christian, right).

And no deserves to die like this, a horrible death, at age 85. We don't know anything about her poltical beliefs, nor do they really matter. To claim that she was somehow deserving of this because some other people of her enthnic group somewhere else are promoting terrible policies is crazy.

Truly, we are better than this.

90% of Polish jews were killed by the Germans in WW2, about 3 million of them. So, yes, 300k survived from that country alone.

Then you have the German jews - who mistakenly thought they'd be considered Germans - Austrians, Czechs, Hungarian, French jews were who sent to the concentration camps and so forth. From Paris alone they were sending 13k jews a month to the camps after the nazis arrived, no shortage of collaborators there.

The nazis killed about 7mm non-jews and around 6m jews, whether or not it was 5.9m or 5.6, or 6.1 isn't really relevant. They planned to kill all of them.

My great-uncle Bill, as Irish an Irishman as you'll ever see was part of the invading US force that freed some of the jewish prisoners from the death camps. He later was a guard at Nuremberg because he spoke German from HS classes.

In our parish, we also had a Catholic polish woman who survived the concentration camps, she had the tattoo and would tell you what had happened to the Poles, jews, gypsies in those camps if you asked her nicely and were old enough to understand. She has passed on.
