A suggestion for the Rabbi
Frank Galton, avid commentator on this blog and dedicated researcher has come up with an example of the breathtaking hypocrisy and duplicity that surround Jewish attitudes to refugees and asylum seekers. Britain's Chief Rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, and his wife Valerie, marked the opening of Refugee Week with a visit to a groundbreaking World Jewish Relief project in Yorkshire. One of the refugees thanked the Chief Rabbi for listening to the group’s stories and expressed appreciation for everything the Jewish community was doing to support them.
The Chief Rabbi said: “It is humbling to listen to the remarkable positivity of people who have endured such enormous upheaval, and yet refuse to allow this to define their future. I am tremendously proud of the generosity of our community, which is helping the refugees to meet their needs so impressively. The response of World Jewish Relief to the refugee crisis, a major challenge of our time, both far from our borders...and now in the UK, has been exemplary.”
I've done a bit of research myself on the Chief Rabbi and find that this is pretty much par for the course. He's big on open borders, freedom of movement, the joys and benefits of diversity, welcoming refugees irrespective of their numbers and origins, tolerance, multiculturalism, anti-racism and all that good stuff. And given that he's also a passionate supporter of Israel you'd imagine that country would embody everything that he espouses for White countries.
Well no, actually. As Frank points out, Israel.....
+ Accepts only Jews as immigrants (to the point of enforcing DNA testing)
+ Bans mixed marriages
+ Has separate schools, separate housing, separate roads and separate buses for Jews and Palestinians.
+ Has built a 30-kilometer fence along the border with Jordan to keep migrants and asylum seekers ("wild beasts") from entering Israel
+ Imprisons then deports African asylum seekers
+ Administered the birth control drug Depo Provera to Ethiopian Jews without their knowledge or consent
+ Prohibits Ethiopian Jews from donating blood
+ Bans gay marriage.
So Rabbi here's a suggestion. If you're really interested in the welfare of refugees (and not just in destroying the ethnic homogeneity of White countries) focus your attention on the country that's your real home.
PS, here's where Jewish organisation stand on immigration and refugees. This Ribbi doesn't stand alone.

Jews Unite Behind Push for Immigration Reform
Rex WeinerJune 26, 2013
Rabbi Mark Diamond stood on the border with Mexico on a brisk February day, alongside the Rev. Alexei Smith of the Catholic Archdiocese, the Rev. Mary Glasspool of the Episcopal Diocese and a host of clergy from Presbyterian, Methodist and United Church of Christ ministries.
All of them peered through the corrugated steel wall at the rough miles between countries. The scene evoked thoughts of the old adage Mexicans invoke about their country: “So far from God, so close to the United States!”
Diamond, the American Jewish Committee’s Los Angeles director, who arranged the clerics’ 25-member fact-finding mission, is hoping to bridge a comparable distance — between a life of promise and a life of uncertainty — for millions of noncitizens in the United States.
Diamond’s key role in organizing this gathering was no isolated communal act. After months of delay, the U.S. Senate is set to vote on the most comprehensive immigration reform legislation in 27 years. And Jewish groups across the country are acting together in a way characteristic of the community on few issues besides Israel.
“It’s about the right thing to do,” said Robert Gittelson, co-founder of Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and a Republican. In op-ed pieces and interviews, Gittelson, a retired Jewish businessman from California’s San Fernando Valley, has called certain GOP strategies on immigration reform “un-biblical” and “cruel.”
Those leading an active push for the bill, which will offer a path to citizenship for some of the nation’s 11 million undocumented aliens, include the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Bend the Arc and the National Council of Jewish Women.
The Senate vote — and the even harder struggle that will follow in the Republican-controlled House — represents the fulfillment of a sustained campaign by the Jewish community for immigration reform, which has built momentum over the past decade.
Whether or not the necessary votes are mustered from both houses to land a historic immigration law reform bill on President Obama’s desk, Jewish outreach, particularly in the Southwest — home to the largest share of America’s emerging and increasingly powerful ethnic and interfaith populations — promises to be politically and socially influential beyond the issue it addresses.
California, with 2.6 million undocumented residents, is a front line in the battle for this reform. And a Jewish establishment ever mindful of its need to operate through alliances and coalitions to advance its own interests is not blind to the implications of the issue in a country whose demography is shifting rapidly. In addition to working with Latino groups, the ADL’s Southwest regional office has forged alliances with Asian groups representing undocumented Koreans, Chinese, Filipino and other Asian Pacific immigrants in the Southland.
“It’s the ethical thing to do,” said HIAS president and CEO Mark Hetfield, of the community’s immigration reform activism. But he quickly added, “It’s in our strategic interest.”
Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, reflects the deepening relationship that Jewish groups are developing through their visibility on the immigration issue.
“I really admire the way that the Jewish community has gone deep in support of immigration reform,” Salas told the Forward. A 15-year veteran of immigration rights activism, Salas fondly recalled a 2006 mass mobilization, when a procession through L.A. streets began with a cantor blowing a shofar and singing “Let my people stay!”
Salas counted efforts by Jewish organizations as second only to Catholic groups in their impact. A key factor, she said, is that HIAS and the AJC, founded at the height of Jewish immigration more than a century ago, have a built-up institutional expertise at integrating new arrivals into American society, with programs, legal resources and family services already in place — but now serving Spanish speakers instead of Yiddish.
The Ford Foundation recently awarded a two-year $1 million grant to the AJC’s Bridging America Project, which is planning “joint advocacy workshops in Dallas, New York and Washington, D.C.; a ‘national conversation’ among Latino and Jewish leaders about issues of mutual concern, and conferences in Houston, Miami and New Jersey on the economic benefits of immigration, among other activities.
Salas has also worked closely with the ADL, which keeps a keen eye on extremist groups that have set up vigilante patrols on the border between the United States and Mexico. An ADL study reported that “violent incidents against illegal immigrants have been brutal and are occurring with greater regularity, further intensifying the atmosphere of fear and suspicion on both sides of the border.” The ADL has also tracked a rise in hate crimes, discrimination cases and bigotry against Latinos.
In L.A. — a city where Latinos are nearly half the population and whose new mayor, Eric Garcetti, boasts both Jewish and Mexican heritage — Salas’s group also works with the Progressive Jewish Alliance, the Jewish Labor Committee and Bend the Arc, a progressive national Jewish group, in pushing for immigrant labor protections.
“It’s not a one-way street,” Salas said. When it comes to Israel, the Latina activist suggested, the two groups’ relationship may help to modify anti-Israel viewpoints and foster dialogue rather than demonization. “It comes up,” Salas said, referring to the Middle East issue, “and there’s a perspective: ‘Isn’t this [U.S. treatment of Latinos] the same as in Israel with the Palestinians?’ It’s an opportunity to talk that through, to talk in the context of global immigrant policy, where people can be critical, but in good faith.”
Newly arrived Latinos tend to show higher rates of anti-Semitism, said Amanda Susskind, the ADL’s Pacific Southwest regional director. She attributed the phenomenon, which shows up in surveys, to “exposure to some religious teachings.” But the next generation, she said, is no different in its relationship with Jews than the rest of Americans.
Asians are also active in coalitions with Jewish groups addressing immigration issues. “We appreciate the partnership with our Jewish allies,” said Betty Hung, policy director of the L.A.–based Asian Pacific American Legal Center. An estimated 3 million undocumented U.S. residents are Asian. California counts the nation’s largest Asian population without legal resident status — about 400,000. APALC has been an active participant in the ADL’s Asian Jewish Initiative, founded in 2006, which brings together civic, business, academic and faith leaders in the L.A. community for social mixers, awards dinners and educational programs.
For all this organizational solidarity, opponents of the reform legislation are not hard to find in the Jewish community.
One outspoken Jewish opponent is Stephen Steinlight, a former director of national affairs for AJC who criticizes the bill as “amnesty” for illegal immigrants and opposes any “pathway to citizenship” for them.
“My views changed,” he told the Forward, explaining his break with the AJC and his alliance with the conservative Center for Immigrations Studies. “AJC made no distinction between legal and illegal immigration,” he said.
Steinlight, who characterizes the pro-reform Jewish leaders as “do-gooders leaning over backwards for the aggrieved,” sees immigration as a threat to American workers, especially under-employed African Americans. Groups like AJC and HIAS, he said, are “trying to make amends for doing nothing for Jews during the Holocaust.”
Diamond acknowledged that views similar to Steinlight’s are not hard to find. “To my dismay, I have heard more than a few voices in the Jewish community — rabbis I respect, and other leaders — who have said to me, ‘This is not our problem,’” Diamond said. “My response is that this is very much a Jewish issue, one of the most critical issues facing us in this country, and certainly here in Southern California.”
For Wendy Braitman, a member of IKAR, the L.A. Jewish congregation led by Rabbi Sharon Brous that has made social activism a mitzvah, it’s also personal. “I feel like it’s my story,” she said. Braitman embodies the grassroots dimension of much of the Jewish activism on this issue. In April, Braitman sat in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Washington office with a group of interfaith activists who paid their own way from the California lawmaker’s home state to lobby her. “I told her I was Jewish,” said Braitman, “and that the issue was of importance to Jews all over the country. As Jews we know what it’s like to live in the shadows.”
On the pro-reform Jewish right, meanwhile, support comes with the some of the same caveats that many conservatives have been using to hold up the pending legislation: that undocumented residents should be treated as lawbreakers who will be subjected to fines and blocked from full citizenship even if allowed to stay as permanent residents. Border security must also be beefed up, they demand, as a pre-condition to any reform.
Matthew Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, emphasized that the final legislative package must be a bill that “addresses the challenges of illegal immigration and securing our borders in a way that will win the support and trust of the American people.”
As an entrepreneur who built a successful garment manufacturing business, Gittelson is also focused on the bill’s labor implications. For one thing, Gittelson would like to see the cap on guest-worker visas — topped off in the Senate bill at 200,000 per year — match the actual demand for labor, which he says is 300,000 annually at the lowest.
“The Senate bill shortchanges the economy,” Gittelson maintained. He blamed unions for setting the low quota. “We need a free-market solution, not a union solution,” he said.
Gittelson’s CCIR co-founder is Samuel Rodriguez, a politically conservative evangelical Christian who is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference. Despite their reservations, Gittelson said, he and Rodriguez are standing with progressives on immigration reform. “When it comes to this issue, we see eye to eye, or at least 90%.” He has recently joined AJC’s Immigration Task Force.
In Washington, as the bill has been pulled apart and slapped together, the Jewish community has advanced strong arguments for what should be in it — and what shouldn’t.
Family reunification is high on the list of must-haves. Border security is ranked low. Border security is a valid concern, Diamond acknowledged, something he learned firsthand on his trip to the border near Tijuana. “But the issue is how we are deploying our resources,” he said. “Are we targeting gun smugglers and sex traffickers, or are we targeting that 27-yearold man who’s been deported and is trying to get back to his family?”
The legislative package submitted to the Senate also notably does not include the Uniting American Families Act, sponsored by Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy. This measure would have allowed an American citizen or permanent resident who was lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to petition for immigrant status on behalf of his or her same-sex partner as an immediate relative.
This aspect of the bill is crucial to many Jewish activists. A coalition of nearly 100 New York interfaith leaders, including 37 rabbis, signed a letter to New York Senator Charles Schumer, urging his support for equal protections for LGBT Americans and their families. To their dismay, Schumer convinced his Democratic colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee to drop the measure from the bill, arguing that its inclusion would cost the support of key Republicans. Citing their own head counts, many of the measure’s supporters vehemently reject this argument.
One victory that was won by Jews is a provision that directly involves Jewish interests: The Lautenberg Amendment, first passed in 1989, granted immigrant status to victims of religious persecution in their native lands. The law allowed the emigration of hundreds of thousands of Soviet Jews and was extended in 2004 to cover Christians, Baha’is, Jews and other religious minorities fleeing Iran.
The law continues to assist religious minorities from those countries and from Southeast Asia. The new bill makes the law — which previously required annual renewal by Congress — permanent. Jewish activists saw that win as a fitting tribute to the late New Jersey senator Frank Lautenberg.
Ira Handelman, chair of AJC’s Los Angeles Public Policy Committee, said that if and when the legislation becomes law, the interfaith and immigrant-activist coalitions in which Jewish organizations are now involved may move on to tackle other issues. These include the ongoing national debates over education policy, economic development and social justice, apart from immigration.
“Just because they sign something,” Handelman said, “doesn’t mean that’s the end. It’s the beginning.”

New Zio-Racist Hypocrisy: Lock Up “Asylum-Seekers” in Israel, but Promote them in America
DECEMBER 3, 2014 AT 8:08 AM
The never-ending display of outrageous Zio-Supremacist hypocrisy in promoting one policy for themselves but the direct opposite for America and all other countries, has once again been demonstrated with a new law passed by the Israeli Knesset which will see all African “asylum seekers” in that country locked up behind bars.
News of the Knesset law has, of course, been completely suppressed in the Jewish Supremacist-controlled media outlets aimed at the Goyim, but has been reported in the media outlets aimed at Jewish readers.
In this way, for example, news of the new law was reported in the Jewish Daily Forward, under the heading “Israel’s New Push To Keep Africans Behind Bars.”
According to the Daily Forward:
Israel’s Parliament has passed a new law aimed at keeping African immigrants behind bars — and a controversial jail to house them open — beyond a deadline set by the country’s highest court.
The Knesset by a 43-20 vote approved an initial legislative step for a new law that mandates three months in prison for African asylum-seekers who enter Israel without documentation and a year and eight months more in the spartan Holot detention center, which Israel euphemistically refers to as an “open facility.”
If it passes two more hurdles, the new law will permit Israel to keep more than 2,000 African detainees imprisoned in Holot — and likely to jail many more.
What makes this law all the more incredible is the fact that all major Jewish organizations in America—all of who fanatically support the state of Israel—support the exact opposite policy in America and all other nations .
For example, a statement put out by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on July 7, 2014, titled “Jewish Statement on Unaccompanied Children at the U.S.-Mexico Border,” said:
As organizations deeply rooted in Jewish values, we support policies that promote human rights, ensure the protection of children, and fulfill the Torah’s mandate to ‘welcome the stranger.’
As such, we are very concerned about the urgent humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. Migration of vulnerable children and others from the “Northern Triangle” of Central America . . . . The safety and well-being of these migrants—and particularly the unaccompanied children—must be at the heart of every policy decision made in response to this humanitarian crisis.
This “Jewish Statement” was endorsed by 20 of the largest Jewish organizations which make up the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations.
It went on to demand that asylum seekers in the US be given refuge to “start their lives anew in our communities” and that they be funded by the taxpayers at the same time.
Based on the Jewish values to which we adhere and our proud history as a community and nation established by immigrants and refugees, we urge the U.S. government to protect both children and refugees in a humane manner.
At the very same time, the ADL runs a “support Israel” campaign in which it tells activists how they can express their support for the Jews-only state.
In addition, the ADL has a “Children at our Borders” section of its website which is devoted to promoting the ongoing invasion of America by Central Americans.
All of these Jewish-promoted policies in America (and elsewhere) are the direct, exact, opposite of what the state of Israel does.
In fact, if any other nation had to adopt Israel’s asylum-seeker policies, there is no doubt that the ADL and all the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations’ members would be up in arms, shouting “racist” from the rooftops—and would have their announcements replicated all over their co-religionist controlled mass media.
Yet they support Israel, which has these very same policies to which the Jewish organizations claim to oppose in America….
The hypocrisy is both clear and staggering: it is the old story, of one rule for the Goyim, and another rule for the “Chosen Ones.”
French rabbi Rav Touitou applauds Muslim invasion of Europe

Ah. He's employing a classic Jewish tactic. "Not us Jews, but them Jews over there".
Gilad Atzmon talks about the triumvirate of Jewish identity. They shift like chameleons from one to another at their own convenience, so the dumb goy guilt prevents them from ever nailing their oppressors. Don't fall for it. He has been silent knowing what he knows for god knows how long. He's got a dusty copy of old baby Babyls back there. He knows what to do when it gets hot in the kitchen.
Insider: Jews Use Immigration to "Divide and Conquer"
July 5, 2019
Dr. Stephen Steinlight was Director of National Affairs (domestic policy) at the American Jewish Committee, and a policy analyst for the Center on Immigration Studies.
He writes: "For perhaps another generation, an optimistic forecast, the Jewish community is thus in a position where it will be able to divide and conquer and enter into selective coalitions that support our agendas."
Diversity is the term they give to divide and conquer.
Although he doesn't say we don't have to worry about the W.A.S.P.s anymore, he warned his fellow Jews against creating other new ethnic rivals.
re. The Jewish Stake in America's Changing Demography
Reconsidering a Misguided Immigration Policy
(from Feb 22, 2011)
by the late Dan Butler
Dr. Stephen Steinlight's article, "The Jewish Stake in America's Changing Demography: Reconsidering a Misguided Immigration Policy" (2001) speaks frankly of Jewish control of US immigration policy, politicians, and the media.
"For perhaps another generation, an optimistic forecast, the Jewish community is thus in a position where it will be able to divide and conquer and enter into selective coalitions that support our agendas," he writes.
Even with these caveats, the era of astoundingly disproportionate Jewish legislative representation may already have peaked......
"With the changes in view, how long do we actually believe that nearly 80 percent of the entire foreign aid budget of the United States will go to Israel?"
jewish_media_octopus.gif"It is also true that Jewish economic influence and power are disproportionately concentrated in Hollywood, television, and in the news industry, theoretically a boon in terms of the formation of favorable public images of Jews and sensitizing the American people to issues of concern to Jews."
Here's the kicker. He warns that Jewish dominance is endangered by a consensus coalition of Asians... the Yellow Peril!
"But the day will surely come when an effective Asian-American alliance will actually bring Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, Koreans, Vietnamese, and the rest closer together. And the enormously complex and as yet significantly divided Latinos will also eventually achieve a more effective political federation. The fact is that the term "Asian American" has only recently come into common parlance among younger Asians (it is still rejected by older folks), while "Latinos" or "Hispanics" often do not think of themselves as part of a multinational ethnic bloc but primarily as Mexicans, Cubans, or Puerto Ricans."
Although he doesn't say "we don't have to worry about the W.A.S.P.s anymore", that's implied by his looking ahead for the next competitor.
He mentions Hispanics, but he knows Maranos have been embedded in Mexico and South America all along.
Organized Jewry has the least control and influence over Asians: Vietnamese, Koreans, Thai, and especially the Chinese.
11kristof-articleLarge.jpgAsian culture has notoriously strong filial and clannish cohesion, educates and disciplines their offspring - things that European stock used to do, and Jews still do. He sees them as a threat once they attain 'Asian-American' identity consciousness."
Having identified the next adversary, he wonders how to restrict Asians and Latinos without being against immigration:
"Before offering specific recommendations about immigration policy, we should immediately anticipate the predictable opposition and state emphatically what we are not advocating. We are not advocating an anti-immigration position. It is also, frankly, in our own best interest to continue to support generous immigration. The day may come when the forces of anti-Semitic persecution will arise once more in the lands of the former Soviet Union or in countries of Eastern Europe and Jews will once again need a safe haven in the United States. The Jewish community requires this fail-safe. We will always be in support of immigration; the question is whether it should be open-ended or not? The question is what constitutes the smartest approach to supporting immigration?"
"For starters, we should give serious, immediate consideration to terminating our alliance with the advocates of open borders; (we do not belong in their coalitions) and ally ourselves, instead, with pro-immigration advocates who favor immigration reform that includes moderate reductions in immigration, such as the Center for Immigration Studies."
While Steinlight is not hostile to the European majority, there is no consideration of their right to preserve their culture and values.
ANTISEMITISM NECESSARY FOR JEWISH UNITY
In April 2004 Steinlight warned that "fading Anti-Semitism" in America was a 'crisis'. Steinlight admitted that his first loyalty was to Israel and he regarded the decline of anti-Semitism as another threat to American Jewry.
"I'll confess it, at least: like thousands of other typical Jewish kids of my generation, I was reared as a Jewish nationalist, even a quasi-separatist. Every summer for two months for 10 formative years during my childhood and adolescence I attended Jewish summer camp. There, each morning, I saluted a foreign flag, dressed in a uniform reflecting its colors, sang a foreign national anthem, learned a foreign language, learned foreign folk songs and dances, and was taught that Israel was the true homeland."
(Such a camp for European Christians or Muslim girls and boys would be shut down as "terrorist training compound" and "linked to Al Quaeda" or "white supremacists". But thanks to "the formation of favorable public images of Jews and sensitizing the American people to issues of concern to Jews," Zionists can pursue an agenda inimical to US interests. )
Steinlight sounds the alarm of declining anti-Semitism: "Anti-Semitism has fallen to historic lows among white Christians, which still form America's dominant cultural group. Once a significant factor in American life, anti-Semitism has become a peripheral phenomenon. A recent ADL study found only some 12 percent of white Christian Americans hold anti-Semitic attitudes. Indeed, a key factor contributing to the crisis in Jewish Continuity is that our neighbors like us and often wish to marry us and have children with us."
Oh my God - Jewish youth might assimilate! Note that his figures are from the Anti Defamation League - the same organization that promotes the idea that anti-Semitism is on the rise.
In conclusion, in these articles we see how organized Jewry pursues a hypocritical agenda. While on the one hand it pursues Zionist exclusion for Jews, it fears the rise of non-Jewish ethnic identities and encourages their disintegration.
