Brexit could unleash anti-Semitic forces throughout Europe that would drive all Jews from continent, top Rabbi warns

Britain’s decision to leave the EU could result in a continent so destabilised by the threats of Islamism and the radical right that the very survival of Jewish communities is thrown into doubt, one of Europe’s most senior rabbis has warned. Pinchas Goldschmidt, the president of the Conference of European Rabbis, has told MEPs that Europe is in danger of breaking up and unless leaders begin to co-operate “far more” over the dangers, the consequences within 30 years will be catastrophic.  (The Independent)

One train is the train of radical Islam and Islamic terrorism… The other train is the anti-Semitism of old Europe, the extreme right,” said the top rabbi, adding that if nothing is done, Jewish communities could disappear from Europe within 30 years. “Both threats are existential threats for European Jews – and both trains have to be halted before it’s too late,” Goldschmidt said.
