Europe’s top rabbis petition the EU demanding new laws that allow Jews to carry guns to protect themselves in the wake of recent terror attacks

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

One of Europe’s largest Jewish associations has written a letter to EU ministers asking for gun laws to be relaxed to allow Jews to arm themselves to protect against terror attacks.
Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the head of the European Jewish Association, made the request in the wake of the Paris attacks in which four Jews were killed inside a deli in the French capital.
In the letter, dated January 13, he asks for permission for ‘people in the Jewish communities and institutions to own weapons’ to protect against ‘anti-Semitism, racism, and intolerance’.

Should Jews be privileged over non-Jews in carrying arms?

My instinct as a convert to Orthodox Judaism is to always ask about any Jewish request or practice or policy, what if everyone did this? In this case, I think it would be wonderful if there was widespread gun ownership in Europe, but I am disappointed that the head of the European Jewish Association has asked for guns for only Jews. Don’t the goyim have every right to defend themselves?

I feel some sympathy for this critique by Andrew Joyce: “An unarmed European population swamped by hostile immigrants, some of whom will continue to bomb, maim and murder in the name of their fanatical religion. An unarmed European population unable to overcome or remove the harmful influence of a small but energetic elite, possibly armed but at the very least enjoying the protection of a suite of gagging laws and a heavily armed police force. An unarmed European population stripped of all pride in its past, and all hope for its future. And thus the culmination of the process which began following the Enlightenment with Jewish admission to citizenship, slowly evolving to the gradual diminution of the citizenship of non-Jews and the ascendance of Jews to privileged protected status throughout the West.”

Jewish organizations are usually at the forefront of the confiscation of guns from citizens but now this European Jewish Association wants special privileges for Jews? That’s nauseating.

Jews used to champion free speech, but increasingly in Europe and Australia, Jewish organizations are pushing to criminalize hate speech and Holocaust revisionism.

Are Jews white? In the American South prior to the Civil War, Jews identified as white and got along great with their fellow whites. No Southern Jews prior to the Civil War championed abolition.

Today it is to Jews advantage to identify as a non-white oppressed group and so most Jews today, I wager, do not identify as white.

Is there a Judeo-Christian tradition? If it is in our Jewish interest to say yes, we say yes, but today it is more in our interest to say no, so we say no.

Is it good for the Jews? That’s an important question for Jews to ask but we should not begrudge those of European heritage asking what is good for their people. All groups should organize in their self-interest, including whites.

For The Love Of Jesus

Around 10 a.m. today, I walked past the bus stop on Pico and Robertson Blvds (south-east corner) and watched this hulking black guy loom over a scared little old Oriental lady and ask her for his bus fare. “I hate to ask,” he says, “but I really need help. For the love of Jesus, please.” She sorts through her coins to apparently give him the fare and probably counts herself lucky to have avoided physical harm.

I never see Latinos or Asians asking for money on the street, only whites and blacks.

When I moved to LA in 1994, I gave a black stranger who asked $5 so he could get home. I also gave him my mailing address at his request and he promised to pay me back. He didn’t. I think that was the last time I gave any homeless person money.

The Australian Moment: How We Were Made For These Times II

I’m reading this 2012 book:

* The chapter “From Olive to Yellow” recounts the change in Australian immigration from British to south European to Asian.

George Megalogenis writes:

My favorite opinion poll is the one that would have stopped my mother migrating to Australia if the government of the day had obeyed its findings. Taken in March 1951, the Australian Gallup Poll asked voters ‘whether or not Australia should get immigrants’ from seven listed nations. Each candidate for our acceptance was European, a mix of Allies and enemies from the Second World War. The Netherlands (78.4%), Sweden (74.7) and France (57.8) recorded strong Yes votes. Of this group, only the Dutch would come to Australia in large enough numbers to be welcomed with the putdown of ‘clog wogs.’ Less popular were people from Greece (only 41.5%), Yugoslavia (32.6) and Italy (26.6). Germany (53.9)…

It is the absence of a settled Australian culture that makes this country so much easier to migrate to than the United States or UK…

The most revered prime ministers on both sides of politics believed in White Australia.

* Fraser had taken the side of the South Vietnamese refugees before the boats started coming to Australia….

In opposition, Fraser called for [Gough] Whitlam to accept as many as 50,000 Vietnamese refugees.

In 1977, an Age poll asked people to choose between six regional sources for new immigrants. The British topped the survey, next were people from Northern and Western Europe. As for the rest, don’t bother applying.

In The Lucky Country, Donald Horne observed that the Australian-born children of Southern Europeans seemed to take longer to fit in.

* Former Labor Prime Minister says about former conservative Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser: “He has always been impeccable on the question of race.” (Pg. 145)

* The [conservative] Coalition supported the South Vietnamese because Australia had fought with them in that wretched war.

* Fraser: “The Australian people received Vietnamese refugees with enormous generosity. They accepted that there was a moral obligation and there were special circumstances because we’d been fighting with them.”

* By 1996, Australia’s Vietnamese-born population numbered 167,000 (.9%).

What Formed Your Sexuality?

What formed your love map, your erotic template? If it goes unexamined, we might find we are doing things that are bad for us because we haven’t taken the time to understand our drives. Just because we do something doesn’t mean that sums us up. Our careers are not ourselves.

Her Task Is To Instill Sexual Desire In Orthodox Wives

I wish her much mazal!

From the New York Times:

The suggestions ranged from the seemingly modest to the more direct, from reading romance novels to kissing with the lights on to wearing a lacy nightgown to his touching her clitoris to the use of a vibrator. The woman would take the list home to her husband, and he would take it to their rabbi, who would rule, one by one, on whether these interventions were allowed…

“She’d just found out what and where her clitoris is, after her third child,” Marcus said… Merely having this basic knowledge put her ahead of plenty of Marcus’s Orthodox patients, who tend to be from the Satmar sect, one of the most strictly observant groups within Hasidic Judaism. Their circumscribed upbringings, in sections of Brooklyn or in Monsey, N.Y., a hamlet north of New York City, have been utterly insular, their worlds devoid of secular books, let alone television and the Internet. About sexuality, their minds have been kept free of information and infused with fear. “They have zero — zero — connection to pleasure,” Marcus said. “And there’s no vocabulary to start with them. We have an intake form to fill out, and they get to ‘orgasm’ and go to the receptionist and ask, ‘What is this?’ ” When Marcus begins to explore whether they’ve ever been aroused, they have no understanding of the concept.

Chaim Amalek: “How you gonna keep ‘em inside the Torah Corral of Sex when they’ve discovered Craigslist? Also, real Yidden do not concern themselves with such goyishe nareshkeit as female “orgasms.” They instead devote themselves to Torah. Female orgasms are for goyim, not us.”

Genetics and intelligence differences: five special findings

From, the latest research on genes and IQ:

Intelligence is a core construct in differential psychology and behavioural genetics, and should be so in cognitive neuroscience. It is one of the best predictors of important life outcomes such as education, occupation, mental and physical health and illness, and mortality. Intelligence is one of the most heritable behavioural traits. Here, we highlight five genetic findings that are special to intelligence differences and that have important implications for its genetic architecture and for gene-hunting expeditions. (i) The heritability of intelligence increases from about 20% in infancy to perhaps 80% in later adulthood. (ii) Intelligence captures genetic effects on diverse cognitive and learning abilities, which correlate phenotypically about 0.30 on average but correlate genetically about 0.60 or higher. (iii) Assortative mating is greater for intelligence (spouse correlations ~0.40) than for other behavioural traits such as personality and psychopathology (~0.10) or physical traits such as height and weight (~0.20). Assortative mating pumps additive genetic variance into the population every generation, contributing to the high narrow heritability (additive genetic variance) of intelligence. (iv) Unlike psychiatric disorders, intelligence is normally distributed with a positive end of exceptional performance that is a model for ‘positive genetics’. (v) Intelligence is associated with education and social class and broadens the causal perspectives on how these three inter-correlated variables contribute to social mobility, and health, illness and mortality differences. These five findings arose primarily from twin studies. They are being confirmed by the first new quantitative genetic technique in a century—Genome-wide Complex Trait Analysis (GCTA)—which estimates genetic influence using genome-wide genotypes in large samples of unrelated individuals. Comparing GCTA results to the results of twin studies reveals important insights into the genetic architecture of intelligence that are relevant to attempts to narrow the ‘missing heritability’ gap.

Police Lives Matter

From According to the FBI, during the 10 years from 2004 to 2013, a total of 565 Americans “feloniously killed” police officers. Forty-three percent of the killers were black. Last year, the year Michael Brown and Eric Garner were hailed as martyrs, was typical. A survey by co-author Jeff Lipkes found that, in 2014, blacks killed 40 percent of the 47 cops who were murdered on the job. Given their percentage of the population, this means blacks were five times more likely than non-blacks to kill a policeman.

Black violence against cops is perfectly in line with black violence as a whole. For the last year for which arrest records by race are available–2012–blacks accounted for 49.4 percent of arrests for murder, 32.5 percent for rape, 54.9 percent for robbery, and 30.8 percent for burglary. Blacks were therefore more likely than non-blacks to be arrested for all these crimes: from a high of eight times more likely for robbery to a low of three times more likely for burglary.

Teacher ‘used Alexander Technique’ On Boys

REPORT: A MARRIED schoolmaster has insisted he did not grope young boys and was simply using the Alexander Technique to help them relax.

David Lowe, 61, said he learned the therapeutic method while studying at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and used it to help schoolboys sing.

The Cambridge-graduate is accused of abusing ten boys aged between seven and 13 at the prestigious Westminster Cathedral Choir School and Ampleforth College between 1978 and 1984.
