PRESS RELEASE FOR THE ATTACKS IN BRUSSELS - Europe in confrontation with Islamist Terror Print E-mail
Wednesday, 23 March 2016 08:27

Today, the 22nd of March 2016, Europe is once more devastated by the deadly attacks at the Brussels airport and metro station, only four months after the fatal attacks at the heart of Paris that caused the loss of lives of more than 130 innocent people, and as tragic sequence of the hit in Istanbul just three days ago. The circle of bloodshed seems endless.

Present day terrorism has a name and an ideology: It is the extreme political Isalm, the Jihadist Islamist movement. Europe has to rise against this enemy with tenacity and determination. Nevertheless, we must not draw parallels between Islamist murderers and the peaceful Muslims who live and work in Europe.

One of the painful political consequences of Islamist terrorism in Europe is that it encourages the racist and neo-Nazi extreme right. The response to Islamophobia cannot ever be neo-Nazism.

We, the Jewish people, have the tragic historical privilege to understand this better that any other human being. Europe must give a democratic response to the Islamist challenge and safeguard the safety of all its citizens.
