31. see my video, this article garbage. israeli in europe
moshe ,   London, of Jerusalem   (07.26.10)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01SSxbY9HMY this is total nonsense, propaganda, facist rubbish. almost all ashkenazi israelis i went to school with have managed to get EU passports via grandparents etc. i done the army, done israel. why dont jews have more confidence in ourselves, than to write articles like this. are they building a mega mosque on the bombed eiffel tower or bombed big ben? no. but ground zero yes. this has an anti europe, and a VIVA la USA is great spin under control of hussain obama. Probably not your best article ever
32. :: Unjustified hate
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (07.26.10)
Wow Moshe Dann must really have a huge inferiority complex if he feels so much unbridled hate towards Europeans! Imagine how insecure you have to be to think that 830 million people hate and despise you? The truth of the matter is that the vast majority of Europeans really don’t care about Israel, they don’t care if Israel survives or disappears, they don’t care if Israel is a quasi-nation state that has never been able to establish recognized borders, they don’t care that Israel is rife with racism and has a dismal human rights record and above all they don’t care what Israel or Moshe Dann thinks about Europe. At best the vast majority of Europeans are indifferent to Israel yet Moshe Dann, in his need to fulfill his hate, thinks that all Europeans are innate ‘anti-Semites’ hell-bent on destroying Israel and Judaism to boot. If Europe wanted to destroy Israel it could do so in a heartbeat as collectively it is far superior in all fields: military, economy, international relations, etc. The fact that it has not used its immense power against Israel only shows that it has no intention of harming Israel beyond goading Israel to conform to international laws and standards. Even such simple matters as EU trade and economic cooperation are vital to Israel as it accounts for 30%-40% of all Israeli imports and exports. Cutting of all trade to Israel would have a devastating effect and what could Israel do about it - go crying to the US? In a way it is flattering that Moshe Dann is so concerned about European opinion was it not for the fact that it highlights the incessant deep-seated need to hate and denigrate for the egotistical sake of self-justification.
33. ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH THIS WRITER
url ,   tel aviv   (07.26.10)
is not following the international media and the tsunami of antisemitism gaining momentum. For a more indepth look at what's happening in our world, Melanie Phillips' new book "The World Turned Upside Down" is an important read.
34. And Israel Helps Europe
Ralph Levy ,   USA   (07.26.10)
Yet Israel prefers to have tea and crumpets with European Leaders instead of cracking down on EU spying and funding of Israeli leftist groups and BDS groups. http://ralphsrant1.blogspot.com

Johnny ,   Nazareth   (07.26.10)
I bet you're a muslim, if not you don't know anything about Judaism or christianity! Read the bible ignorant... Christians don't reject the god of the jews...
36. TALKBACKS NR 1 AND 3 !!!.
Arn. ,   SWEDEN.   (07.26.10)
VERY VERY TRUE INDEED !!!. FURTHER - Europe's Jewish problem Op-ed: EU hostile to Jewish State because Israel’s success flaunts Europe’s failure EUROPES PROBLEM IS WITH YEHOWAH, EUROPES HATE IS AGAINST JEHOWAH INDWELLING ISRAEL. JEHOWAH IS FACING THE EVIL IN THE WHOLE OF EARTH, BECAUSE HE IS THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH, THEREFORE ISRAEL WHOM JEHOWAH IS INDWELLING, IS FACING THE SAME AS HE. JEHOWAH CONTROLES AND RULES ALL OF THIS, AS A ONE THAT CONTROLES AND RULES THE WOMB OF MOTHER EARTH. ALL POWERS OF THIS WOMB, ARE NOW BEGINNING TO SQUEESE THE FOETUS TO COME TO BIRTH, THAT IS ISRAEL - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrCal6kE-r4 Arn.
37. To James, Marcelo
David ,   Haifa   (07.26.10)
Of course, James, even if you blame Israelis, they have to be other Israelis, not yourself. This is how most of our Arab and Muslim enemies - or, for example, many blacks in the US and Africa - have dealt with their problems: it is all the fault of the other, why should I criticize and improve myself? And Marcelo, don't belittle the disaster that befell our people ( i.e. mine, I am not sure if we belong to the same people ) by suggesting that the situation of Israel today is comparable to the Holocaust and what preceded it. You both are proof of the fact that, while wisdom, vision, introspection, self-criticism, and the ambition to better ourselves and our own fate brought us to greatness in the past, today we are led mainly by stupidity, short-sightedness/one-eyed blindness, a lack of creativity, and the obession to blame anyone but ourselves for something that we ourselves bear - at the very least partial - responsibility for. But hey, if you want to continue burying your head in the sand and blaming me and others - in- and outsiders - be my guest. Whatever makes you feel good.
38. # Mr. Dann
knurks ,   Germany   (07.26.10)
'Jews in Israel are a traumatized people. Traumatized by the Holocaust and by constant Arab terrorism, [...]' I agree and your article is the best example for this. It would be the first step into the right direction, if you would realize that your view of today's Europeans has more to do with your trauma than with reality.
39. peter boy!
Duchess   (07.26.10)
so glad you recognize Israel as the eternal Jewish homeland! So glad you exposed that your other opinions voiced previously on ynetnews originated from nothing deeper than racism. You need to support Israel in order to get rid of "your EU Jews" Try a new tactic-be smart.
40. All goyim revert back to what they have learned thru their
Al   (07.26.10)
mothers milk...its called antisemitism. Its been going on forever. Read a book of history to understand how it is so. As far as all the kool aid drinkers out there, remember that when polio makes a comeback. Europe became an entity only after they murdered the Jews and plundered all that the Jews had. Now they are getting it in the neck with the Muslims. As far as the dumb nut Israelis living in Europe are concerned, they don't amount to a hill of beans. Donuts to coffee, once the local Muslims start burning their homes and cars, they will be crying the blues while pissing in their pants begging the Israeli government to schlep them back to Israel gratis. As far as I'm concerned they can piss in their pants. I wont be crying a river for them.
41. I'm traumatized by this bullshit aticle...
moi ,   ici   (07.26.10)
42. #38 knurks
berlonski ,   berlin   (07.26.10)
I completely agree. The problem is: traumas have the tendency to repeat themselves. And the more Israelis think and speak in the Moshe Dann way they will successfully make the hate bigger he complains about. Being hated can be a drug, and this writer seems to be addicted to it.
43. American ended black slavery around 140 years ago not
Alan ,   Golan   (07.26.10)
sure they can lord anything over Europe, which is the slant this article takes, i.e its Israel or America for the Jews and thats that, (yes after some more security cameras are fitted around New York temples) in this total garbage article, could it be any more biased? propaganda, this is 2010, not 1910.
44. dumb article
daniel ,   finland   (07.26.10)
i don't think article makes any sense. its premises are flawed. secondly, media are powerful tools and pictures transmitted through them like the occupation has definitely affected european sensitivities negatively
45. I Think It's More To Do With ...
Christy ,   Boston, US   (07.26.10)
The left wing in various EU countries coupled with a growing Muslim population the left wing wants to cater to. Not that the EU can't be jealous of Israel - but I think the other factors (see above) are more the issue. In the US I see left wing groups, who take their cues from EU left wing groups, being very anti-Israel.
46. # 14: Hello!
Barka   (07.26.10)
"the European who hate Israel , hate themselves, because the jews were influential and productive community for thousands of years in Europe, but muslims just came lately. Israel must improve it's PR in Europe, if not muslims will win in the PR war. " Please do read up on your history of Europe and Islam, then compare the influence of Jews and Muslims on European history and culture. As for the article itself: Europeans do have major problems tolerating, in Israel, what they have come to despise in their own history: colonialism, racism, militarism, ethnic cleansing. Jealousy? Get real
47. #40 You sure have weird fantasies!!!
Mark ,   Netherlands   (07.26.10)
Europeans are not BLIND to what you do on a daily basis towards the palestinians. We protest,because we see!
48. Brilliant piece of truth here.
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (07.26.10)
it is exactly how i feel as UK non-Jew. Israel is already the winner, i pray she continues to thrive and defeat all her retarded xenophobic enemies.
49. #40 are you an old fool? yes you are
Sid Freedman   (07.26.10)
you cant be right side of 50 with comments like that.
50. To Peter (# 16) from Vienna.
flyingdoc57 ,   Florida, U.S.A.   (07.26.10)
"If Israel is such a successful state, then my on earth won't the Jews of Europe leave and migrate once and for all" [Peter] They stay, Peter, just to piss you off! And the plan certainly seems to be working, wouldn't you have to admit? Your parents/grandparents did their very best to kill us all off, but you failed, didn't you? Get over it, scumbag, and learn from history. You "Aryans" lost both World Wars, and you're still itching for more blood. Quite the "Master Race", eh? Yeah,...Master of IDIOCY! Go find yourself a nice Nazi website on which to hang out. Your presence here is no more desired than Jews are in Vienna. So long, putz. And always remember....NEVER AGAIN !!!
51. "Matty Groves" (# 32), the hater from the toilet of Ireland.
flyingdoc57 ,   Florida, U.S.A.   (07.26.10)
"Unjustifed hate"??? You want to know about "unjustified hate"? I suggest you read your last 100,000 postings (i.e. the last month's worth). Were it not for YOUR unjustified hatred of everything having to do with Israel/Jews, you'd have nothing to say or do. Outside of anti-semitic hatred, your life is meaningless. You spend every day/night on this website spewing criticism and condemnation of Israel, as if your overly verbose comments mattered. That makes you not only obsessive/compulsive, but a complete idiot with nothing better to do. Perhaps you and Peter (from Vienna) ought to get together some time, and reminisce about the good-old holocaust days.
52. I disagree
Mark Bernadiner ,   Pearland, USA   (07.26.10)
European jews, as entire europe, are mostly coward, afraid and even hate each other to avoid problems with europeans who are genetic anti-Semites, and muslims. European jews even now try to hide their identity, that is how coward they are. They have enough resources to organize resistance to muslims and europeans, but, they are prefer to hate and betray Israel. Don't forget a primitive education europeans enjoy in schools and universities in world and ME history. It is not only european jews’ disease, it is around the world.
53. Not quite true.
Sam   (07.26.10)
The dislike and antipathy to Israel is worldwide. Europe unlike the US doesn't have to bow to AIPAC and the evangelicals. The US would have treated Israel in exact same way if it wasn't for those two lobbies.
54. the areason is simple if attatched to Hashem
avrom ,   bet shemesh   (07.26.10)
you exist if you are not attatched to Hashem you do not exist as in the matrix you are just an illusion
55. Self loving Jews can do no wrong
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (07.27.10)
Jews are blind to their own bad behavior. Over and over they repeat the same mistake, that they are special, and should be allowed minority rule, until the majority throws them out, again.
56. Why Jews are hated in Europe
Abraham Berman MD ,   Boynton Beach Florid   (07.27.10)
Right-on If the truth be told, Unfornately, our youth has not learned this lesson. We live in a most dangerous world, with viscious enemies with almost world distructive weapons where peace is a right for every tyranical nation ,but not Israel.
57. Could we have some better quailty op-eds please
op   (07.27.10)
