The Board of Deputies of British Jews has recently taken to issuing Jewish Manifestos for upcoming elections so pressure can be brought to bear on prospective MPs to conform to the Jewish agenda. This is a sinister development, establishing yet another communitarian precedent that other alien groups, including Muslims, will undoubtedly build upon later, promoting yet further the idea of Britain being not the home of its ancestral peoples but a patchwork quilt of contending ethnic factions. As they have done throughout the post-war European Genocide, the Jews put in place the infrastructure of multiculturalism that other invaders then use to their advantage. How long before we see a Muslim Manifesto? Not long, I imagine.
There is some utility in this for us however. We do see the Jewish agenda openly exposed, publicly associated with a representative Jewish organisation. I wasn't sure exactly how representative the Board of Deputies was. But, according to their preamble, they seem to arrive at their agenda after a long process of consultation.
The Board of Deputies of British Jews prides itself on its representative and democratic structures, which have in turn contributed to the formulation of this Manifesto. Whilst there is no single ‘Jewish view’, through this document, the Board of Deputies has sought to represent as much of a consensus as possible.
Through a community-wide consultation, which involved the participation of over 300 stakeholder organisations and individuals, the Board of Deputies has been able to capture the diverse range of issues which affect the UK Jewish community across its religious, cultural and socioeconomic diversity.The Jews cite human rights to justify religious separatism, something that fits perfectly with the Muslim agenda.
Under both Article 18 of The Universal Declaration for the Protection of Human Rights and Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) every person has the right “to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.” Policy Ask: To promote a culture of respect for diversity, including reasonable accommodation of individuals’ rights to wear religious symbols.Notice that there is no special privileging of "religion" in the declarations the Jews cite. Freedom of religion is accorded equivalent status to freedom of thought generally. But, as later demands in the manifesto make clear, Jewish respect for these "human rights" does not extend to racist, antisemitic or islamophobic "freedom of thought".
Many of the demands in the manifesto exhibit an Oriental, un-European conception of the proper limits of the state, urging the government to use its power to mould public perceptions in many ways ranging from the criminalisation of free expression to the indoctrination of children in schools.
Policy Ask: To publicly support all efforts to combat Antisemitism.
Policy Ask: To support the continuation of the important work of the Cross-Government Working Group on Antisemitism.
Policy Ask: To be particularly aware of the risk of increased Antisemitism at times of heightened conflict in the Middle East.
Policy Ask: To take action on hate as expressed on social media.
Policy Ask: To ensure that assistance is provided to third-party reporting bodies and security agencies such as the CST that monitor and protect vulnerable groups, including the Jewish community.
The Jewish community is concerned about hate speakers being allowed into the UK to spread and incite various forms of hatred against Jews; other faiths and races; the LGBT community; and other minorities. Hate speakers should be blocked from importing their hatred into the UK, spreading animosity and division.
The Jewish community recognises and appreciates the work of the Home Office in refusing entry to some known hate speakers in the past. From time to time, UK citizens are implicated in preaching hatred on university campuses and at community venues. The Community Security Trust, the Board of Deputies and the Union of Jewish Students have worked with groups including university authorities to balance the need for free speech with a clear opposition to hate speech.
Policy Ask: To support cohesion by banning speakers considered to be ‘not conducive to the public good’ from entering the UK.
Policy Ask: To work with the Jewish community to prevent UK citizens preaching hate, including in universities and community centres.
This is the kind of initiative that got Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller banned from Britain, but I doubt dear Pamela will be highlighting it on her website any time soon. Jews oppose the efforts of Europeans to resist their own extinction.
The Jewish community is very concerned about the rise of extremist movements and political parties in Europe, particularly in Hungary, Greece, France and Sweden. The recent European Elections exemplified the growing issue with numerous far-right and racist parties making political gains. The motivations behind these groups vary, and include concerns about immigration, diversity and international conflicts – including the Israel-Palestine conflict – but manifest themselves in various ways including hate speech, racist abuse, vandalism and even violence.
Jews are not the only targets of attacks and our concerns extend to some wider trends. Muslims have been the particular focus of some far-right groups in Western Europe and Scandinavia, whilst the Roma are a major target for the far-right in Eastern and Central Europe. Immigrants of all backgrounds are often singled out by such groups.
Policy Ask: To be alert to and active around extremism, racism and Antisemitism in Europe.
Policy Ask: To act on the concerning findings from the FRA report, including unreservedly condemning Antisemitism in all its forms.
With the growth of social media, Antisemitism is finding new forms of expression which must be monitored and countered. We would therefore welcome additional political and material support to prevent and prosecute Antisemitism and other forms of racism in these new media.
Policy Ask: To take action on hate as expressed on social media.
Policy Ask: To ensure that assistance is provided to third-party reporting bodies and security agencies such as the CST that monitor and protect vulnerable groups, including the Jewish community.Diversity Macht Frei:
The Jewish Community is committed to positive and authentic engagement with people of all faiths and none. Promoting good relations between communities proactively prevents tensions, racism and violence. Steps should be taken to educate people of different faith and belief backgrounds about each other, and proactive efforts and investment should be put into developing good inter faith relations in order to prevent tensions and promote cooperation.Holocaust propaganda for everyone. A copy of Anne Frank's diary for every child in Britain!
The Board of Deputies’ response to the 2014 Holocaust Commission made recommendations, including the following:
• Strengthen and broaden existing Holocaust modules within the National Curriculum
• Educate children to become activists for human rights and social justice, and against prejudice
• Formally designate Holocaust Memorial Day as a recognised day in mainstream schools.
• Increase the number of Holocaust Educational Trust trips to concentration camps
• Support/fund a central Forum for Holocaust Education and Commemoration to offer a joined-up approach.
• Provide all school children in the UK with a copy of Anne Frank’s Diary
• Build a ‘Memorial to the Holocaust’ in Central London – ensuring that it has the power to educate as well as to commemorate
• Promote initiatives to enable young people to shadow survivors of the Holocaust 2015
Policy Ask: To implement the Board of Deputies’ recommendations to the 2014 Holocaust Commission.
Policy Ask: To support Holocaust education, remembrance, commemoration, research and survivor testimony.Collective guilt for Europeans but not for Jews:
In Europe, the 2008 Prague Declaration caused alarm among many Jewish communities by conflating crimes under Soviet Communism with Nazi crimes. The concern is that some countries have attempted to deflect attention from the complicity of their wartime governments in the Holocaust, cynically attempting to avoid liability for compensation to Jewish victims. The crimes that Communist governments committed against their people should be explored and the perpetrators prosecuted, but it is important that countries acknowledge their role in the Holocaust and do not attempt to gloss over a very troubled period in their history.
At times, a related trope is that many leading Communists were Jews and so – it is claimed – the Jews as a whole are complicit in the crimes of Communism. The rationale continues that, as such, Jews in general do not deserve sympathy or compensation for their suffering in the Holocaust. This argument is unacceptable. The actions of some Jewish Communists do not make all Jews complicit.I won't quite all the stuff about Israel. Suffice it to say there is a lot of it and it definitively refutes the claim sometimes made by Jews that they should not be held accountable for the actions of Israel since they have no moral connection to it.
There's lots of Jew/Muslim overlap in here.
Jews demand the right to mutilate their children, along with Muslims:
Policy Ask: To defend the right of Jews to practise circumcision according to their tradition.Jews, along with Muslims, demand the right to inflict needless suffering on animals, and not even have the meat from animals slaughtered in this way accurately labelled so consumers can decide what they want to buy.
Policy Ask: To defend the right of Jews to practice Shechita (religious slaughter of animals for food).
Policy Ask: To oppose the stigmatisation of religious minorities through pejorative labelling, and to support instead non-pejorative labelling that lists all methods of stunning and slaughter, offering real consumer choice.Jews, along with Muslims, demand the right to separatist education supported by the goyim/kuffar. And they demand the right to discriminate against the goyim/kuffar in their admissions policies. No diversity there then.
The popularity of faith schools with parents reflects their academic results, their ethos, their behavioural standards, and the contribution that their pupils go on to make in wider society. Currently, one in every three schools in Britain is a faith school, and around sixty-five per cent of Jewish children in the UK attend Jewish schools.
Whilst some faith schools operate in the private sector, there is a significant benefit to the relationship between public authorities and those faith schools that are part of the state sector. Many of them are models of best practice. As such, faith schools should remain an integral part of the state-sector offer.
Policy Ask: To champion the success of faith schools within the state sector. The success of faith schools is partly due to the sense of shared values and a shared purpose. Quotas or other interventions in schools’ admissions criteria risk losing this benefit. Successful schools should be allowed to succeed as models for other schools.
Policy Ask: To support the right of schools to continue to set their own admissions’ criteria.... Jews, like Muslims, want to be allowed to take possession of certain areas and maintain large families at taxpayer expense.
In some areas, particularly among the strictly Orthodox, the Jewish community is characterised by large families, which forms an integral part of their Jewish identity. When one or more principal earners in such a household becomes unemployed or incapacitated, the need and dependency on housing and welfare benefits can become acute. Caps on benefits, including housing benefit, disproportionately affect families on low incomes.
Where families with six plus children suddenly receive the same amount of certain benefit payments as families with three children, extreme hardship can rapidly follow. The policy intention might be that welfare-dependent families living in areas of high housing costs might relocate to cheaper areas. This is not practical or realistic for Jewish families in London who have longstanding ties to their communities and families and whose way of life necessitates close proximity to community infrastructure like Orthodox synagogues, schools and kosher food.
Demanding more ethno-religious separatism, establishing norms the Muslims will be able to take advantage of:
Many Jews value the option of culturally-sensitive care when choosing a provider. For example, many Jews would prefer carers to offer meaningful experiences for Shabbat and other Jewish festivals, and the preparation of Kosher food requires both sensitivity and understanding. The Jewish community has developed a market-leading care sector which embraces some of the best practices in social care. Examples are Jewish Care, Norwood, Agudas Yisroel, Nightingale Hammerson, Bikur Cholim, THEFED (Manchester), Langdon, Jewish Blind and Disabled, Birmingham Jewish Community Care, the Jewish Deaf Association, Merseyside Jewish Community Care, Kisharon, Jami and the Leeds Jewish Welfare Board.
The costs of these organisations can be higher than non-faith specific care organisations because of the increased costs of providing for Jewish observance including Kosher food. These organisations and their facilities are primarily funded by the Jewish community itself. However, local authorities often pay a significant share of the cost because these providers offer a service that no public body could supply.
Policy Ask: To offer financial support to specialist care providers that cater for the religious and cultural needs of their clients.Demands for genetic screening and funding of special treatment of populations known to be at high risk of genetic diseases, such as Jews and Muslims, because of their grotesque practice of inbreeding:
Amongst the diseases known to be rare, and identified as genetic, there are several that are more common amongst Jews. The Jewish community welcomes the increased awareness of such diseases, and the emphasis given to the wide range of services needing to be taken into account when supporting the carriers of these diseases and their families. Genetics and genetic testing is playing an increasingly prominent role in healthcare.
From the Jewish perspective this has considerable impact – ranging from the increased incidence amongst them of infrequent lethal conditions, such as Tay Sachs disease, through to more common situations, such as in cancer screening, where Ashkenazi Jews are known to have a high frequency of mutations in the genes associated with breast and ovarian cancer. The community believes that in addition to the support for long term care and treatment of those affected, preventive screening and research should be supported by the Government and the NHS.
Policy Ask: To support the provision of appropriate care facilities for people with rare debilitating diseases and advocate for more extensive provision of appropriate genetic screening, and in particular for screening and support for populations at risk.Turns out the "myth" and "canard" of Jewish radicalism and leftist activism wasn't a myth after all. The Jews now admit it in their own manifesto:
Whether through international development and relief charities like World Jewish Relief, Tzedek and World ORT; or through human rights charities like RenéCassin and the Jewish Council for Racial Equality; or through volunteering charities like the Jewish Volunteering Network and Mitzvah Day, the UK Jewish community strives to stand at the forefront of the global movement for change.
Jewish thinkers, biblical ethics and the experiences of the Jewish people have been crucial to the development of human rights. Indeed, René Cassin, a principal author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, was profoundly influenced by the ethics of his Jewish background and the Jewish experience of the Holocaust. UK Jewish NGOs RenéCassin and the Jewish Council for Racial Equality continue to articulate Jewish human rights concerns.Turns out the "myth" of Jews being pro-immigration wasn't a myth either:
The Jewish community is, essentially, an immigrant community, arriving in the UK as either economic migrants or refugees fleeing persecution. As such, the Jewish community takes a particular interest in the plight of immigrants and asylum seekers, and shares a discomfort in loose, pejorative language that stigmatises new arrivals in this country .
The imperative to identify with the migrant is not new to Jews. In Leviticus 19:33-34 it is written, “If a stranger comes to live in your country, do not mistreat them...You shall love your neighbour as you love yourself, for you too were strangers in the Land of Egypt”.
The Jewish Council for Racial Equality, RenéCassin and the Jewish Museum London all have further resources and information about the Jewish migrant experience, and communal concerns about the language about, and treatment of, new migrant groups. The New North London Synagogue and the West London Synagogue run monthly drop-in centres for asylum seekers.
Even though some controls are necessary, our political leadership must be careful not to promote hatred or baseless suspicion towards migrants or asylum seekers, many of whom are vulnerable in a new and unfamiliar country. Policy Ask: To promote fair policies towards migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, takings pains not to encourage hatred or baseless suspicion towards these groups.More Diversity Macht Frei nonsense:
Policy Ask: To make funds available to faith-based cultural bodies and events which promote knowledge, understanding, good relations and integration between different religious and ethnic groups.
