Britain’s Prince Charles expressed Monday his “mounting anxiety, at the apparent rise in anti-Semitism, along with other poisonous and debilitating forms of intolerance,” during a send-off for outgoing British Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks.

The Prince of Wales said: “Running throughout your time as chief rabbi has been that all-important principle of which this country has long been an exponent – the principle of tolerance.

“I sometimes fear not enough recognition is given to the role of the faith communities in the life of our country in promoting such a critical principle, and I join with you, in mounting anxiety, at the apparent rise in antisemitism, along with other poisonous and debilitating forms of intolerance.”

During his speech, the Prince described Lord Sacks as a “steadfast friend” and “valued adviser,” adding: “Your guidance on any given issue has never failed to be of practical value and deeply grounded in the kind of wisdom that is increasingly hard to come by.”

Lord Sacks is set to step down after 22 years as Britain’s chief rabbi later this year.

    The world has learned from the Americans mistakes. America’s enemies have caused them less harm than their backstabbing Jewish friends. 70 to 80 billion dollars of American tax dollars is given to Israel. Thousands of American soldiers between the ages of 18 to 24 years old have been killed in Mideast wars to benefit Israel.Special interest groups like the Anti Defamation League have pushed the gay marriage agenda and many Americans are mortified by the legalization of gay marriage. The races are baited against each other by the Jewish controlled media in the US. I think the US was better off with Russia during the cold war. At least they knew their enemy.

      Actually, all Israel receives from the US currently is a $3 billion rebate (ie. discount) on major defense orders. No cash aid, no $70-80 billion.

    I really wonder whether the Price knows the true internal history of his country. Did he have any idea about the part played by the :Oxford Movement” which was started in the 1820s. The the then PM of Great Britain Benjamin Disraeli, Grand Master of Freemasonry; Knight of the Order of the Garter. Didn’t he revealed about the existence of secret societies which were based in London,. Paris, and Germany. Didn’t he have any idea how in 1955 the British intelligence helped Muslim Brotherhood top leaders to flee to London? Didn’t he know the founding of the “Islamic Council of Europe” with its HQs in London under the leadership of SALEM AZZAM? DIDN’T HE KNOW ABOUT THE FOUNDING OF THE “ISLAMIC INSTITUTE FOR DEFENSE TECHNOLOGY” IN LONDON AGAIN UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF SALEM AZZAM. THIS WAS INAUGURATED IN 1979. Weren’t the top terrorists from Gaza, Yemen and other places called to attend a meeting which led to the formation of the “Islamic Arab peoples’ Conference” which was called by Hassan al Turabi of Sudan. He was initiated as a member of Egypt’s MB in 1955. His conference led to another conference in Khartoum, Sudan which led to assemblage of all known leaders of International terrorism. Weren’t the “Popular International Organization, PIO” founded in Sudan after the London Conference. Does he have any idea how this meetings and confeences led to the blasting of bombs in hotels of Yemen. Then, the commonly referred to “Black Hawk Down” in Somalia? Wasn’t this group which coordinated everything to make the mission of the Americans fail? Blah, Blah, Blah.

    Britain’s royal family has been consistent in its attitudes towards modern day Israel. Prince Phillip’s sisters and brother-in-laws were active Nazis. The royal family also opposed the Balfour amendment and the British Government aided and assisted the early attacks on what became modern day Israel. Further, the house of Mountbatten-Windsor has had close relations with the house of Saud, Kuwait’s ruling family and of course Jordon’s. The result? Prince Charles was born, and raised in a family that was/is pro Nazi, pro arab and anti jew. The hypocrisy is no surprise.

    The British have long been one of the most anti-Semitic people – including one of the first countries to ban Jews.

    The Royal family is one of the most extreme examples of that racism – having never visited – though they have gone to EVERY other country in the entire world.

    They are very similar to the Germans of the 1930s and 1940s

  • Can’t say this comes as a surprise, GB is on a glide path to becoming an Islamic state, give it time soon the unofficial Sharia law areas will become official and eventually GB like Egypt will be governed by the Islamic Brotherhood

  • Wake up Charles! In 1947 the British gave all their guns to the Muslims and told them to kill all the JEWS in Palestine…That’s the true British spirit!

  • Well…..not ALWAYS : England was the first country to expel ‘its” Jews after robbing them of their hardearned possessions. England was the first country in which the blood libel was promulgated.

    During the Holocaust Britain denied entry of Jews into The Land of Israel, thus making Britain a nazi accomplice.
    After that, Britain’s socialist government, particularly its Foreign Secretary, Ernest Bevin, that antisemite, continued its virulently anti-Zionist policy.

    Let’s not be selective in weighing Britain’s relations with the Jews, but clear-eyed.

    This is not a duplicate comment.

  • Charlie boy do you know where Israel is?

  • Cheryl Semrau

    Prince Charles should go to Israel

  • Prince Charles is no friend of Israel. He has never been there. He was in Jordan just a couple of weeks ago and spends a lot of time in Saudi.
    The only member of the British “Royal Family” who has been to Israel is The Duke Of Edinburgh who visited his mother’s grave once on an unofficial visit. But they’ve all been to Saudi, etc.
    The Royals aren’t democrats – Charlie is great at repeating things that he’s read in books and passing them off as his own ideas, and he’s always trying to meddle in politics, even though nobody ever elected him. He’s just a clown. Also, in recent years he has become enthralled by Islam.

  • THANK GOODNESS PRINCE CHARLES THINKS ANTI-SEMITISM IS WRONG ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

  • It’s sad to see Israel’s closest allies turning away. There seems to be a growing trend of antisemitism in the world.

  • That’s a bit rich, considering he has a long history of work with vicious anti-Semites.

    Here is Charles with the Chowdhury Muen-Uddin, who took part in acts of genocide during Bangladesh’s 1971 war. Uddin set up a number of leading Islamist organisations that work hard to support Islamist terror groups and are the perennial hosts of anti-semitic hate preachers.

    Charles has worked hard over the past few decades to legitimise Islamist extremists as ‘moderate’ and representative of Britain’s Muslim community.

    • Long Live Her Majesty! Charles would be a disaster to the Mnarchy

    • The ‘Crown’ has always been on the opposite side of anything Jewish. They have never shown any kindness toward the Jewish People not the State of Israel. So why would he expect anything better from the people the ‘Crown’ is expected to set an example to follow. He is so full of SHIT! Along with the rest of his lot…

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency. In America’s Great Game: The CIA’s Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, historian Hugh Wilford shows this has always been the case. Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
