Britain's Chief Rabbi slams Multiculturalism

Britain's top Rabbi Jonathan Sacks denounces Multiculturalism:
Liberal democracy is in danger,
Sacks said, adding later:
The politics of freedom risks descending into the politics of fear.

Sacks said Britain's politics had been poisoned by the rise of identity politics, as minorities and aggrieved groups jockeyed first for rights, then for special treatment.

The process, he said, began with Jews, before being taken up by blacks, women and gays. He said the effect had been
inexorably divisive.

A culture of victimhood sets group against group, each claiming that its pain, injury, oppression, humiliation is greater than that of others, he said.

That the Rabbi identifies the Jews as the first to take up multi-culturalism requires special emphasis. Next the question pops up: "why is the Rabbi abandoning multi-culturalism"?

Multi-culturalism involves abandoning the historic ethnic and cultural core of Western nations. It justifies mass immigration and condemns opposition to immigration as 'racist'.

The particular content of immigration in Europe is overwhelmingly Islamic. Muslims are becoming an important factor to take into account in elections in France, The Netherlands, Belgium and Britain. Due to the hostility of the Muslims towards Jews in particular parties looking to woo voters have to abandon support for Israel. This leads to Israel's cut off from alliances with nearby European countries and reliance on the far-away US, whose position is weakening globally, due to military, economic and political shortcomings.

The Conservative Muslim council, a consultory body to the British Conservative Party recently released a report stating amongst others:
The Conservative Muslim Forum also wants the compulsory history curriculum in schools changed to give "full recognition to the massive contribution that Islam has made to the development of Western civilisation
Regardless of whether one finds Israel a congenial country or not, on any objective assessment of the type of unqualified support given to Israel by the current government it is not conducive to British national interests as this could damage Britain's relationships with 15 billion Muslims (Sic!) worldwide, including those in Britain
Also Jewish citizens of European states become under threat of violent Muslim citizens, which can be seen most strikingly in France. This takes the shape of opportunistic street crime.

In conclusion: there are good reasons for the leaders of European Jewish communities to review their support for Multiculturalism and mass-immigration. In my view alignment of Jewish communities with nationalist movements in Europe must begin with affirmation of the historic ethnic and cultural core of European nations, by Jewish leaders.
