#1 Others tweeted that "a good Jew is a dead Jew."
This is what passes for wit on the Continent these days? No wonder Europe is *bleep*ed.

#3 I heard a Muslim Palestinian refer to an Arabic-speaking Jewish importer/businessman he liked to visit to practice his conversational skills as a "good Jew", even though he sold liquor, and I thought nothing of it at the time but now I'm wondering about the real nature of their business ties...on same island as previous Hezzie plot disrupted exporting weapons by FBI/DOJ in 2002.

#5 "Its like EU leftism has stripped them of all their humanity."
Are you sure they even had humanity of which to be stripped, Ydaerb ?

#6 Humanity is an individualist trait, an option to do or not do when a situation arises.
When it is coerced, a person forced to make a decision on understanding that not doing so results in some sort of penalty/negative effect, it ceases to be an option in an exotentialist arena. The effect may be the same, something which is called humane, but by a different origination it is not a humane decision but a forced action requiring others to affect a penalty. That is collectivism; the leftist way.
Too simplified, an omelet and a quiche are both basically egg pies. However, how they are made differentiates them.
I know a number of fellow colleagues who will quit the volunteer fire department, even if it becomes pay (and certainly so if people are forced to serve two years as part of Obama's civilian corp draft) because to even accept payment for their deed negates its volunteer aspect.
Leftism's, collectivism's, point is to remove the individual thought characteristics. Free will for better or worse, or authoritarian force of behavior for results which (at least at first) look like what would happen if all people were good. Its a false result put up with ribbons and bows.
Me wanting to help my neighbors does not give me the right to force others to help me help my neighbors.
