#1 Personally, I can't quite understand a Jew living in Germany.

#3 An stunningly beautiful county inhabited by an interesting people. I'll leave it at that.

#4 I hear Sodom was a pretty fun place. Right up until the end.
Fundamentally, this seems like yet another case of the All-Knowing Government deciding what is best and not a German/Jewish issue. We are starting to get a taste of that here. Nice of the Germans to point out where we are headed!

#5 Dr. Steve - The most gripping foretelling I have read lately is Ilana Mercer's book entitled "Into the Cannibal's Pot".

#6 I can't think of many other better places for a Jew to live.

#7 I had no problems living as an American Jew in Germany two decades ago. But the world has changed since then, I'm afraid. When I visited with my mother two years ago, we spent some time talking with the head of the Jewish community in Hildesheim, where Mama was born, and with the single Jew in the Wesermarsch village my grandmother had grown up in, who drove to Bremen once a month to go to synagoge, and it was just sad. But there also seemed to be issues with the young people deserting the countryside for the big cities overall, so perhaps that is the connection.
