“A wave of antisemitism is sweeping the world and gaining momentum,” Liberman said.
Avigdor Liberman, chairman of Yisrael Beiteinu, responded to the high rate of assimilation and the rising wave of antisemitic incidents around the world in a press statement on Tuesday. “Those who want their children and grandchildren to remain Jewish have only one choice – move to Israel as soon as possible,” he said.
“A wave of antisemitism is sweeping the world and gaining momentum,” Liberman said in the statement. “Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar in the US Congress, expresses support for the BDS movement and writes antisemitic tweets.”
“Neo-Nazi demonstrations with hundreds of participants take place in Budapest, Hungary and the police don’t lift a finger. Antisemitic slurs are hurled at Jews on the London Underground and on the Frankfurt express train in Germany. In the heart of Paris, yellow paint was sprayed on a Jewish-owned restaurant and the word Jude was written over it.”
“There has been a significant increase in antisemitic incidents over the past year, including a 16% increase in Britain and 74% increase in France,” Liberman added.
“Jews throughout the world and in Europe in particular must draw conclusions from these antisemitic incidents and the rising rate of assimilation. Those who want their children and grandchildren to remain Jews have only one choice – immigrate to Israel as soon as possible,” Liberman concluded.
