Misguided comments may add to anti-Semitism
Rabbi Mirvis really cannot understand why working-class people in the UK are against mass immigration from the Middle East and the Third World?
Is he aware that hundreds of veterans from the British armed forces who gave everything to protect Britain are homeless and live on the streets while Muslim immigrants (“refugees”) are housed in council houses and have all their needs seen to with free medical care, free schooling and a budget for groceries, etc.
Thousands of British children go to bed hungry while migrants are put up at top hotels. The journalist and true voice of conscience and nonconformity to the prejudices of Britain’s left elites, Julie Burchill makes the very important point that it is easy for the middle and upper classes not affected negatively by immigration to condemn the working classes who suffer as a result of it.
“That the working class might have a thoroughly legitimate reason for becoming more agitated about immigration that the tolerant middle class with their health insurance, private schools and comfy cars is never considered by these usually oh so caring people.”
“Furthermore, Rabbi Mirvis speaks of the main threat to British Jews as being the British right wing. Actually although there are small neo-Nazi groups existing like National Front and Combat 18 which must be condemned, they have paled into insignificance today.
Genuine patriotic organisations like Britain First and people like Paul Weston and Tommy Robinson, support Israel and have condemned the actions of those people.
Whether Rabbi Mirvis and his ilk like it or not, the vast majority of anti-Semitic attacks in the UK today come from Muslims and the majority of anti-Semitic hate speech come from Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party and Muslim clerics like the fanatical Anjem Choudary.
People like Rabbi Mirvis and other British Jewish elites are living in a 40-year time warp.
