According to the New York Times dated 14 December 2018.
French officials paid their respects Friday at a Jewish cemetery near Strasbourg, where 37 tombstones and a monument to Holocaust victims had been defaced with swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti in the same week that a deadly attack that shook the nation…….
There has been intense debate among French Jews and academics about how to respond to what commentators are calling the “new anti-Semitism,” amid a wave of acts traced back to France’s growing Muslim population. Some French Jews, feeling unsafe, have moved to Israel.
Such situations are replicated in England, the USA, and European Countries. There is a current movement of Jews away from countries where they are feeling unsafe. And the majority of these Jews are moving back to Israel.
This repatriation is going to create greater issues in the Israel- Palestine conflict. If the UN are serious about solving that issue then they need to be addressing the anti-Semitism that is developing in Western countries.
The alternative will be WWIII.

Halcyon if there is a major conflict again, I dont believe it will be a Jewish thing – although a lot of us are totally fed up with US backing of the Israel which is a major stimulation of continuance of the Israel/ Palestine conflict since 1947- if US had stayed out of the conflict and stopped its over the top support for Israel with arms etc etc …then possibly the problem would have been solved years ago and this area of the world would now be living in peace together!
No I believe another major conflict could eventuate with the PC attitudes and PC raising of our children there are many Johnny and Jennys in our world, whom have been raised with a me first and a very precocious attitude to life expectations on them selves.
I dont want raising our children to go back to the olden days where strap/belt etc was used to discipline our kids. I guess somewhere in the middle where kids learn respect an as well love and kindness. But also learn you cannot always have what you want when want it …to grow up appreciating and thinking of others.
But sadly the spoilt mememe Johnny and Jenny of today could cause major problems, when they realize the world isnt going to continue making them the centre of attention#1705127halcyonMemberMember since: May 4, 2014

paulinem. I totally agree with you that a ” major conflict could eventuate with the PC attitudes and PC raising of our children”. There has been a growing trend in latter years of academics trying to redefine “science”. There are even papers being offered in America on the topic of ‘feminist science’. Much of what is being discussed is philosophical debate rather than being based on observable and measurable reaction.
Couple that with the current move towards globalisation, and the resultant denial of ethnic culture, we are moving towards a ‘One World Order’ (OWO). I think it is reasonable to suggest that those supporting the OWO are more interested in control than in the welfare of the masses.
Was it not Karl Marx who identified the importance of controlling academic and the Public Offices as a way to gain control over the masses.

What i really get up tight about is the media attitude to violence .
Violence is promoted by culture and rugby.
And will only get worse as long as our children keep getting saturated in a culture that promotes anger .through the medium of Rugby
Lets see the women march against the brainwashing of our youth in a culture that gave us “Once were warriors. and continues to this day emanating violence
Marching change nothing , Action is what is needed. Stop the promotion of violent and grotesque expressions.#1705136gabyoneMemberMember since: November 13, 2008

I have a totally different view of the cause of our violent society. My main causes would include Alcohol & Drugs. I suspect you feel that the Maori culture in particular is at fault. My understanding is that when Europeans first arrived there was no evidence of Maori abuse of their women or children. Yes they fought some bloody battles with their enemies but…. history tells me that so did the europeans of the same era. After inter marriage with other races, only the Maori part seems to be blamed for society ills. Many early white immigrants were sent here, in disgrace, by their family. The higher class folk could often buy the errant children out of trouble in order to save the family name. These, often criminal offspring, ended up being sent abroad to places such as NZ. Alcohol arrived with the early settlers & in more recent years a huge variety of illegal substances have reached our shores. Every nationality has a culture and as a European New Zealander I am proud my forbears embraced the existing culture when arriving.
As for rugby being part of the root of evil, well I personally dislike sports that portray cruelty to animals such as horse racing & polo.

I think as long as there are people like petrol around who try to suppress people’s language and culture, you are going to have angry people. He mentioned he comes from British stock….probably the same British stock who illegally took land. He needs to treat all people with the same respect as he expects to be treated regardless of their race, culture or religion.

I guess the British didn’t realise that when colonised countries all around the world

This is the 21st century
our actions have become more civilized.
Living the past is not a way to improve our future
The culture of our past has been erased and has been updated
All cultures should and must become anti=violent in every form if us women and children are to feel safe.#1705153farmer008MemberMember since: August 10, 2012
