Egypt Islamic anti-Semitism

THE LAST SYNAGOGUE IN EGYPT CLOSED DOWN……

 

And of course you won’t hear a word of dissent coming from the OIC, they’re too busy pushing the ”islamofauxbia is the greatest scourge facing the world today” meme.

Egypt Shuts Down Last Jewish Synagogue

Posted by Daniel Greenfield Bio ↓ on Aug 31st, 2012 Comments ↓

The Anti-Israel crowd likes to pretend that the ethnic cleansing of the Middle East’s Jews was an economic phenomenon. And every few weeks there is a reminder of how precarious the situation is even for the few Jews still remaining, in what was once an Egyptian city with a tremendous Jewish population.

For the first time in 2,000 years, this year there will be no Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services at the Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue in Alexandria.

The synagogue was the last ‘working’ synagogue in Egypt. The Egyptian authorities have banned High Holiday services for ‘security’ reasons.

Levana Zamir, who heads the International Association of Egyptian Jews in Israel, comments: “It seems this is really the end of Jewish life in Egypt. The authorities have found a way to take over the last Jewish bastion, since all the remaining synagogues are already archaeological and tourist sites. It is very sad.”

  1. This is in Alexandria. There is at least one other functioning synagog in Cairo. There are less than 100 jews in Egypt. But in 1956 there were 50,000. 25 k were driven out and thier money and property siezed (stolen) by the goverment in 1956 and the rest in 1967 .

    50,000 people ethnicaly cleansed and their property stolen.

    In the governments defence they should be concearned about safety of the congregations. Even if they wanted to they had no ability to protect christians on their holidays – and nothing makes the savages more murder crazed than other peoples holidays.

    Remember when a church was bombed on christmas? There had been police outside but they mysteriously left just before a bomb was detonated. So the government/police brass know they can’t trust their own officers to not step aside when the savages tell them to.

    Also I doubt an Egyptian police officer has been sufficiantly trained to tie his own shoes, let alone be able to recognize and handle a suicide bomber. The police can’t protect the jews because they aren’t competent or have sufficiant moral character to protect anyone.

    So the government and police could be acting honorably and still have come to the same conclusion.

    It’s only a hundred or so people. The Egyptian Government should pay for them to visit Israel for the Holidays if they can’t protect them.

  2. This is a very tragic story. I admit my own ignorance, as a Jew, re population of Jews still living in Arab countries. This is my 1st visit to Tundra Tabloids and I am very impressed! Every item here is worth pursuit.

    To the party/parties who developed this brave blog/web site, I thank you! American Jews are in a very serious situation with current POTUS. Needless to say, I have never felt the Holy Land of Israel being so vulnerable. It takes courage to contribute a dissenting voice at a time like this.

    1. Thanks Susanne, you make my efforts that much more worth it.
