Quote Of The Day

Quote Of The Day

It is an amazing thing that the German-Speakers display such sensitivity to the cries of a baby and to the drop of blood, I did not see this in my youth. The blood of the Jewish child then was hefker and his life was given to be trampeled by the Gestapo boots, and tens of millions of the German people either collaborated or stood by the side. We don't need a license from them to live as Jews. If this is how things are, and if the German parliament will approve this law, something I don't believe will happen, we have nothing to be there for. Perhaps from the harsh will come something sweet and the Jews there will understand that that is not their place...

  -- Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv Yisrael Meir Lau

  1. It's an amazing irony that Germany is one of Europe's fasting growing Jewish communities.
    But Rav Lau may be missing a cultural point. Germans are a disciplined people very open to instruction. Teach them that it is a positive value to be against the cutting of an infant's penis and they will rally against it. Teach those same people a while later that if the infant's blood is Jewish then a few drops spilled isn't near enough and they'll obediently pull out the pitchforks again.
