    I made an earlier comment that was quite harsh the truth is the Jews have been persecuted terribly 6 million and we'll work throughout history and that's terrible but I don't believe Israeli government is in their best interest because like the Bible says Jerusalem will be humiliated throughout the world for its s i n s

    They have Israel now. What are they even doing in Europe if they don't like it, he can go live in Israel it would be better for him.
    As far back as the 17th century
    through out all of Europe that lot were always mostly the furthest from being like or popular.

    I am sorry you are having issues but the misunderstandings are likely due to ignorance of Jewish traditions and customs rather than any malicious intent. Sure in these dark days it is to our learned Jewish friends in medical research that we look to to bring our world back to normal and in that pursuit I am sure all of us in Europe wish them nothing but the best and Godspeed.

    Indigenous Europeans fear erosion of their culture and sovereignty due to incredible power of small religious/ethnic minority. That might make a better and more relevant story "euro" news.

    Circumcision is the mutilation of a child. "leave us alone" in this case would be turning a blind eye to a horrible crime against a minor.
    Ritual slaughter is animal cruelty. Again the mistreatment of an animal is a crime.

    1. Come with much better examples of being persecuted. These are justified.
    2. Stop committing crimes and you wil be left alone.
    3. Why is a news broadcast that is supposed to broadcast European news making this video without any value for any debate? It is just a guy saying leave me alone…….

    If superstitious voodoo, no matter the religion, is threatened by the march of progress, it has to adapt or step aside.

    As Lenin once wrote when quoting Marx: "Those who toil and live in want all their lives are taught by religion to be submissive and patient […] *Religion is opium for the people*. Religion is a sort of spiritual booze, in which the slaves of capital drown their human image, their demand for a life more or less worthy of man."

    The cultures and religions people cling to are already relics of a prelapsarian world that never existed; put them in a museum and let them collect dust.
