    CNN POLL REVEALS DEPTH OF ANTI-SEMITISM IN EUROPE: Anti-Semitic stereotypes are alive and well in Europe, while the memory of the Holocaust is starting to fade, a sweeping new survey by CNN revealed Tue. 27 Nov. 2018. More than a quarter of Europeans polled believe Jews have too much influence in business and finance. Nearly one in four said Jews have too much influence in conflict and wars across the world. One in five said they have too much influence in the media, and the same number believes they have too much influence in politics. Meanwhile, a third of Europeans in the poll said they knew just a little or nothing at all about the Holocaust, the genocide of six million Jews in lands controlled by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime in the 1930s and 1940s. The poll interviewed more than 7,000 people across Europe, with more than 1,000 respondents each in Austria, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Poland and Sweden. About one European in 20 in the countries surveyed has never heard of the Holocaust. Lack of Holocaust knowledge is particularly striking among young people in France: One out of five people there between the ages of 18 and 34 said they’d never heard of it. In Austria—the country where Hitler was born—12% of young people said they had never heard of the Holocaust. Austria also had the highest number of people in the survey saying they knew “just a little” about the Holocaust—four out of 10 Austrian adults.

    Americans do not fare any better: A survey carried out on behalf of the Claims Conference earlier this year found that 10% of American adults were not sure they’d ever heard of the Holocaust, rising to one in five millennials. Half of all millennials could not name a single concentration camp, and 45% of all American adults failed to do so. But Europeans do believe it is important to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive. Two-thirds of Europeans said that commemorating the Holocaust helps ensure that such atrocities will never happen again. That figure rises to 80% in Poland, where the Nazis established Auschwitz, the deadliest concentration camp of all. (Ynet) Intercession is needed that government leaders in Europe, Canada and the USA will not ignore or downplay the growth of anti- Semitism in their countries. Pray that educational institutions, television programs, films and other media sources will keep the catastrophic facts of the Holocaust alive in an effort to secure that such devastation will never happen again.

    YAD VASHEM TROUBLED BY RESULTS OF A CNN ANTI-SEMITISM SURVEY: Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, is deeply concerned about a new CNN poll, according to which one-third of Europeans claim to know little or nothing about the Holocaust and that many entrenched hateful anti-Semitic tropes persist in European civilization, seventy-five years after the end of the Holocaust. A statement by the Jerusalem-based institution said, "The results of this survey prove the necessity to intensify broad-based efforts in the area of Holocaust education and awareness, which is essential to any effort to contend with anti-Semitism." It added, "While Holocaust education plays an indispensable role in combating anti-Semitism, it must also be augmented by effective government legislation and enforcement. Yad Vashem believes that by raising public awareness about the Shoah, not as a closed chapter in human history but as a relevant topic for our own time, the nations of Europe and elsewhere will be better equipped and motivated to fight anti-Semitism."

    43% OF DUTCH JEWS SAY THEY HIDE THEIR ETHNIC IDENTITY: Nearly half of 557 respondents in a survey of Dutch Jews said they were afraid of identifying as such. Of the respondents, 43% said they take active steps to hide their Jewish identity, such as wearing a hat over their kippah or hiding the Star of David pendants. Many respondents cited their perception of a rise in the prevalence of anti-Semitic sentiment, with 48% saying they avoid situations where they suspect they may be exposed to anti-Semitic reactions. The results of the survey were published Mon. 26 Nov. 2018. Other key findings were that 52% of respondents said anti-Semitism on the street has become more common, 59% said it extends also to media and 82% see it rising online. When it came to experiencing anti-Semitism, 34% said they had experienced racially offensive remarks directed against them, and of those, 89% said that those remarks were connected to Israel. 11% of respondents said they had experienced anti-Semitic violence directed against them. The poll was conducted by the EenVanddag television show of the NPO 1 channel with the JMW Jewish group and the Central Jewish Board of the Netherlands. (Times of Israel)

    CNN polls have been notorious for inaccuracies. If they do selective polling, it is not the general consensus and thus they should not claim it is.

    This may have something to do with European countries not recognizing Jerusalem. If they did, that would show how much power the “Jews” have over their government.

    There is a depth of Anti-Semitism growing around the world and within the United States which is why you have seen an up tick of killings of Jews within and around their Synagogues. I believe unfortunately it is only the beginning of a very bad trend for the future as time grows shorter for this world as we know it.

    "Pray that educational institutions, television programs, films and other media sources will keep the catastrophic facts of the Holocaust alive in an effort to secure that such devastation will never happen again."

    People are already well aware of the holocaust, bombarding them with even more media is likely to have a completely opposite effect than the intended one. Muslims and nazis take "holocaust education" as proof of Jewish influence in education and Hollywood and it only plays into their narratives.
    Laying low and dwelling in their own communities has historically served the Jews better.

    Being loved by the world is not the goal of the Jewish people nor of believers in Yeshua.

    "Do not be surprised, brethren, if the world hates you."
    1 John 3:13

    If anything, being beloved by the world means you've failed in your mission, which is to be the salt of the earth. If the earth is not vexed by you, you're not salt.

    It is not the memory of the holocaust that has faded, Hollywood and history channel will never ever let the holocaust die - what has changed is the people's perception of its relevance.
    The youth especially are put off by what is perceived as an attempt to make them feel guilty for things that happened before they were even born.
    People have become capable of seeing the Jews as something other than victims, in part but not entirely because of the state of Israel.
    A tank or a sniper or a military unit with machine guns certainly does not resemble a victim.

    Furthermore it is generally not the religious Jews who mingle in Hollywood, politics, etc.
    It is no mitzva to be a defender of George Soros who openly conspires to bring down banks and entire nations, nor to be a defender of Harvey Weinstein and people who mockingly say things like "shiksas are for practice".

    Rabbi Daniel Brenner wrote an interesting article where he talks about being sent to Jewish camp as a youth and being fed all kinds of ideas about the role of gentile women, ideas he later acknowledged to be disgusting.

    Similarly I think people are starting to perceive that Jews have a role other than the role of victim.

    According to Muhammad & Islam the end cannot come until Muslims fight and kill the Jews in another Holocaust. Read the Islamic Hadith Quotes below from the "Religion of Peace". You must educate yourself in order that you are not deceived! Look up the meanings of Taqiyya and Kitman under Islam.

    Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176:
    Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
    Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "


    Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."


    Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6981:
    Ibn 'Umar reported Allah's Messenger [Muhammad] (may peace be upon him) as saying: You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me); kill him.

    Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6983:
    Abdullah b. 'Umar reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You and the Jews would fight against one another until a stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.

    Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6984:
    Abdullah b. 'Umar reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Jews will fight against you and you will gain victory over them until the stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; kill him.

    Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:
    Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
