But above all, and here Europe's Jews are directly affected: If the EU breaks apart, in its place we would have a bunch of national states. And not the semi-civilised kind like Belgium, France or, yes, Germany. Instead Poland or Hungary would be the norm, countries with a barely interrupted authoritarian and antisemitic tradition, one that is currently gaining in strength. In Hungary President Viktor Orbán is calling for a struggle against "a political and intellectual elite" that "consists of world citizens in contrast to the nationally conscious majority".Source
Note how Jews are allowed to grossly insult Europeans with impunity, but Europeans face persecution just for making mild remarks expressing scepticism about the Jewish worldview.
A right-wing lawmaker in Germany accused of anti-Semitism in his writings has avoided being expelled from his party, at least for now.
Wolfgang Gedeon will remain a voting member of the Baden-Württemberg state parliament with no party affiliation after temporarily waiving his rights on Tuesday to represent the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) following a lengthy meeting with party leaders.
The leaders decided to postpone a decision on removing the lawmaker until after Gedeon produces an expert opinion on writings over the years in which he referred to the Holocaust as a “civil religion of the West,” called the Holocaust memorial in Berlin “a memorial to certain crimes,” and referred to Holocaust deniers as “dissidents.”Source
