Ben Shapiro: Ill-Assimilated Muslims Are Contributing to the Rise of Anti-Semitism in Europe

As Ben Shapiro filled in for “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” on Friday, he raised a critical issue facing Jews in Europe that surprisingly made headlines in the left-leaning, mainstream media. The article Ben referenced on the program, “Anti-semitism is still alive in Germany as Jews face ‘disturbing’ discrimination,” delved into the evidence that, due to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow nearly 1 million Muslim refugees into Germany, anti-Semitism from ill-assimilated Muslims is now contributing to disturbingly high rates of discrimination against Jews in Europe.

“I visited France a couple of years ago with my wife,” said Ben, “and there are certain districts in France where you do not want to travel if you are a Jew wearing a yarmulka.”

The article stated that “Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision in 2015 to open the nation’s arms to 1 million mostly Muslim refugees has created a double threat for Germany’s roughly 120,000 Jews: rising anti-Semitism from the newcomers and a resurgent right-wing nationalist movement spawned by the arrival of so many immigrants.”

The article focuses on Mikhail Tanaev, a Jew who emigrated to Germany in 1998 from Russia. He told USA Today, ” When I arrived in Germany … I never saw such displays.” The displays he’s referring to occurred in the middle of Berlin where Israeli flags were burned in the middle of the streets following the U.S.’s decision to move the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“I never thought that could happen in the middle of Berlin. That’s something you see in other parts of the world. It’s really disturbing,” Tanaev said. “It feels like we’re being threatened because you never know how people will react further when something like this occurs.”

Watch above hear what Ben thinks of the rise of anti-semitism.

BEN: This is Ben Shapiro in for Glenn Beck, talking about the UN resolution 120 to nine yesterday. Against the United States. Saying the United States should remove its embassy from Jerusalem in Israel.

Again, it's insulting that we're paying the bills, paying the freight for this wretched hive of scum and villany. Why in the world we would pay for these people to Occupy a building in downtown New York, so that they could blow through parking ticket, make crimes, get (?) seems like a waste of time to me. Because our interests are the best interests. I understand that we're not supposed to say it. I understand that would at that would be to take too little the interest of other countries. Except for the fact that those interests have led to human suffering (?) while America's generally to human happiness abroad.

If it were not for the United States presence in the world, countries would be poor, countries would remain dictatorial. The United States has been a force for good in the world. I think that's a fundamental disconnect between how some people in the United States think of the United States and how people are traditionally conservative think about the United States.

And that goes back to a root view of what the US is. There are hope (?) the hurts inview, that the United States is a country (?) that the United States is built on the back of slave labor. That the United States was built with certain principles of exploitation. That that were essentially enshrined in the Constitution. (?), but failing. It's sort of the Barack Obama view of the universe.

Then there's the conservative view which is that the Constitution is the greatest document deadvised by human hands. That the Constitution enshrines certain rights. And that it represents eternal values both here and abroad. And the Declaration of Independence does the same.

And that (?) it's tragic. But that's the point. Without those principles, without the veracity of those principles, without the truth and the strength of those principles, the world becomes a darker place.

And imagine if the United States had not been there for World War II. Imagine how that would have gone.

Folks in Britain would now be speaking German. Imagine if the United States had not been there for the Korean War. South Korea would now look like North Korea.

Imagine if the United States had not been there. Yes, in Iraq.

Saddam Hussein would either still be in charge or the place now would be in charge of ISIS and Iran. The fact is when the United States does withdraw, the world becomes a worse place.

Vietnam was a worse place because the United States withdrew. Cambodia was a worse place because -- now, I'm not talking about what's in America's interest to do. I'm not talking about whether we should have been in these places. The point I'm making, that where (?) where American boots do not step, freedom is less likely to follow. That doesn't mean we have to put American boots everywhere. It doesn't mean we should put American boots everywhere. It does mean, however, seeing the United States as a force in the world is necessary in order to understand why the United States really has no (?) and granting that are dictatorial and tyrannical.

And this is amazing to watch the Europeans try and suggest they have some sort of moral authority over what our view of Jerusalem and Israel. That's bizarre to me. There are more and more stories these days coming out of Europe. Jews are moving out of Ypres. Again, again, it's like the 1930s. They're moving out of Europe. Now they have a place to go because Israel exists. Before they didn't. But the fact is, the Jews are moving out of Europe in record numbers. And there's a reason for that.

There's an article in USA Today, from Berlin, (?) immigrated to Germany in 1988. (?) his Jewish faith didn't matter to classmates and neighbors. That's because Germany (?) to atone for the Holocaust and prevent anti-Semitism (?) reparations of Nazi persecution, erected (?) and turned anti-Semitic speech into a crime. (?) decision in 2015 to open the nation's arms to 1 million, mostly Muslim refugees. (?) 120 Jews. Rising anti-Semitism. Spawned the arrival by so many immigrants. There's another threat, which I will talk about in a second. Which is the secularist (?) that threatens Jews as well as Christians. The anti-Semitic (?) when I arrived in Germany, I never saw such a displace. Last week, (?) burned Israeli flags to protest President Trump's decision on December 7th to recognize Israel as (?) prompted a national outcry.

I never go to thought (?) it's something you see in other parts of the world, it's really disturbing. Other instances of anti-Semitism in Germany have become motion and brazen. (?) cobble sized plaques, embedded in sidewalks, (?) the German military and soldiers bakers over the summer. In 2016, (?) anti-Semitic incidents in increase (?) Jewish community on edge.

According to a repeat survey, 62 percent of Jewish respondents said they experienced (?) in France, Jews have been moving out at record rates.

I visited France a couple years ago with my wife. And there are certain districts in France where you do not want to travel if you're a Jew wearing a yarmulke. She put it inside her shirt. (?) because she was concerned. Because of the violence levels that have occurred in Paris.

In Sweden, the threat is not just from the rising anti-Semitism of the Muslim population in places like Sweden and (?), for example.

It's also coming from the left. Commentary magazine today reporting the firebombing of a (?) for Sweden's anti-Semitism (?) for years, Swedish Jews have lived in fear of such violence. (?) and ill assimilated Muslim minority. According to a 2013, (?) four out of five Jews declined to publicly identify as Jewish in Sweden. A damning indictment of a country that likes to portray itself as one of the countries most tolerant. \street\{#N}{|-}Street level thuggery point (?) Swedish Jews also find themselves pressed by raining (?) solicitude after anti-Semitic attacks. But it also (?) through the their freedom to practice their faith.

Consider rabbi (?) to homeschool the four youngest of his 11 children in Sweden. The rabbi and his wife Leia arrived in the country in 1991. (?) a Jewish outreach movement. 400,000 Jews in Goth up Untilburg. (?) out of the question.

So what happened?

Sweden basically tried to force these people to put their kids into government schools.

They ended up on the sharpened of the (?) soon after it came into effect the local (?) and they were fined for failing to send their kids to Christian schools. The assault on religion in Europe demonstrates, again, you believe so trust human rights to the Europeans. You believe so trust freedom of religion to the Europeans. And you certainly can't trust protections of Jews to the Europeans. As we continue, let's talk a little bit about American foreign aid. Where are we spending it? Where? And (?) Ben Shapiro in for Beck.

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.
