Times of Israel – Jews should think twice before wearing a yarmulka in certain areas of Germany, the head of the country’s Jewish umbrella group warned Thursday.

“The question is whether it makes sense to be recognizable as Jews in certain areas… by wearing a yarmulka, or whether it’s better to wear a different head covering. This is indeed a development that I didn’t see five years ago and that is a little frightening.”

    I doubt Obama or the US would ever forsake Israel, but the current situation is not of the US’s making.
    Hamas, as a proxy of the IRG are criminals and should be prosecuted as such.
    Negotiations will result is either Irani agreement to stand down on atomic weapons, or the demise of their society, probably along Afghani, but maybe Pakistani lines.
    Both are utterly failed states trying to hang on.
    Iran, despite the bellicosity of it’s government isn’t far off from that position.
    And their treasury is almost broke despite Turkeys attempts to ensure a business relationship.
    It is sad really, that bad government can be allowed to ruin a culture and country, especially one with the tradition of the Farsi.
    It, like the Palestinians, can never be recouped as a viable vestige of the culture they where.
    In short, they have lost their way and must wait on God to take pity on them in their delusional way.
    If the PA joins the International Criminal Court they would be subject to it.
    That would throw a spanner in it’s (the P.A.’s) gears, fer sure!
    Little else offers hope, but that’s no reason to be down, at least it’s them and not us:-)

  • I predicted world wide anti-Semitism when others said I was being an alarmist. In todays New York TIMES PG. 1 THE RELATIONSHIP “has never been so terrible as it is today. .Nobody even tries to use any diplomatic words.” (Gloria Eiland, a former Israeli national security adviser) I predicted this relationship with Israel and the Obama administration. Please help me to let others know the truth. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
