Teichtal made his comments in a meeting with the parliamentary head of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), which is the second-largest political party in Germany.

Teichtal said he is calling on other European rabbis and Jewish leaders to “take action” against other member nations potentially choosing to leave the EU.

“I call upon the leaders of all Jewish communities around Europe to do whatever they can and execute all of their influence, in order to prevent any other countries from leaving the EU,” Teichtel said. “The possibility of dismantling the EU and reverting back to nation states should worry all Jewish people around Europe….A strong European union is a paramount interest to the Jewish people of Europe in general and to Jewish people of Germany in particular.”

Teichtal also expressed concern over “the strengthening of nationalism and of extreme right-wing parties and movements” in the UK, and said that “the Jewish community in Berlin joins a great number of Jewish community leaders from all over Europe who expressed their sorrow over the UK’s decision,” The Jewish Press reported.

    The Jews in America joined forces with Obama and assisted in putting him in place. Obsma is now promoting any radical organization that believes Jews should be eradicated he is also allowing migrants by the millions of that same sentiment to enter into this country. How well are the Jews fairing in France? Islamic immigration accelerates at warp speed under the E.U. Who represents the most manageable threat the extreme right wingers or radical Islsm. Radical Islam plans to kill all the Jews it’s just a matter of time until they get it done. In fact the elimination of the Jews is an absolute for Islam because the kingdom they are putting in place cannot reach its fruition with one Jew left alive on this planet. Extermination is the name of their game.

    Many of the Jewish leadership are still fighting the dangers of the last century on the right, and are ignoring the new dangers of this century on the left.

    The EU is the problem.

    The EU reflects the ambition of the New Antisemitism, a weird Communist-Islamist hybrid ideology, that is more evil than the N*zi ideology of the previous century.

    The Islamism is genocidal against Jews. This hard-left inheritor of Communism is equally genocidal against Jews, as part of its broader goal to destroy ethnicities, religions, and nations. Including Jewish ethnicity, Jewish religion, and the State of Israel.

    In this century, many European nationalisms are friendly toward Jews and the Jewish nation, and work against the same enemies that threaten Jews now.
