Berlin – Kosher Ban Is Okay With Jewish Supporters Of Germany’s Far Right Party

    19

    Berlin – Jewish supporters of the German far-right Alternative for Deutschland party said they support a ban on kosher slaughter since it could significantly help the party politically.

    The AfD party’s platform has long included support for a ban on kosher slaughter in Germany, as well as the import and sale of kosher meat, in line with its opposition to halal, or Islamic ritual slaughter.

    A Jewish group supporting the party announced its incorporation in October, and was swiftly condemned by other German Jewish groups.

    “Enabling kosher slaughter is important for Jews, but not essential for survival,” the Jewish support group, calling itself Jews in the AfD, said in a statement that was posted on social media. “Therefore we are willing to compromise, especially because a complete prohibition of shechita would most likely gain the AfD many votes.” Shechita is the Hebrew word referring to Jewish ritual slaughter.

    The statement continued that the group would only agree to a ban if the government did impose restrictions on importing kosher meat.

    The statement added that banning ritual male circumcision, another part of the party’s platform, is “non-negotiable,” as it is “indispensable for Jewish life in Germany.”

    1. Will Trump do the same? Ban Kosher? He was elected by the same Ultra Right. Will EDUCATED Yiden support him on this too like they did on Deportations, Separating Families?

      • “Will Trump do the same?” No.

        “Ban Kosher?” No. (It’s unconstitutional)

        “He was elected by the same Ultra Right.” No, he wasn’t. He was elected by tens of millions of US citizens of all persuasions.

        “Will EDUCATED Yiden support him on this too like they did on Deportations, Separating Families?” Absolutely!

        See, that wasn’t so hard.

        • “Ban Kosher? No. Its Unconstitutional” The Republicans will find away around it. Remember Rubashkin? Iowa? Republican State, Republican Judge, Republican POTUS, 400 Illegal Immigrants (persecuted by Republicans)

        • “He was elected by tens of millions of US citizens” WRONG Hillary won the votes of the US Citizens Mr Educated. Nice name change. Usually Educated is the first poster, now its Einstein. Great. Not only are you uneducated but certainly not Einstein. (This is a better proof than any of your Yoni’s)

          • Please, don’t insult me. I am not Educated Archy. But, of course, in your paranoia, you won’t believe me. Not my problem.

            I didn’t say the tens of millions were the majority. Indeed, Hillary had more popular votes. However, in this country we have the electoral college system. Trump gamed that system expertly and won more electoral votes, while Hillary blew it.

            If we would have had elections by popular vote only, Trump would have gamed that system too, by modifying his campaign strategy. He would have won then, as well.

      • It’s interesting that you managed to make this about Trump, especially considering that in this country the only credible threats against shechitah, milah, and chinuch have come from the left.

    2. Sad. They’ve put political idealogy above their yiddishkeit and what is good for themselves and for their continued freedom to practice their faith, just like the MAGA Fake News Jews following Trump and hating and cursing other yiddin who are loyal to Yiddishkeit and not Trumpkeit.

    3. we should realize that the reform movement started in Germany by Jews who wanted to ingrain themselves with the goyim. They became the self hating Jews who (according to R. Avigdor Miller tz”l) caused the holocaust….

      • And Satmar Ruv ztk”l blamed the Zionists, Chacham Ovadia ztk”l blamed it on the sins of the victims in previous incarnations, Lubavitch Rebbe ztk”l said it is beyond human understandung, there are those who claim Rav Shach ztk”l blamed it on chillul shabbos, ‘rabbi Mizrachi claims they weren’t even Jewish, other blamed our abandonment of our live and yearning for eretz yisroel hakedoshah and if you do some research you can find many others who know Gd’s reasons for evcerything.

        When Rav Miller said that he was in olam hasheker so he couldn’t actually know and now he is in olam haemes and knows but cannot say.

        • sounds like many who you quote are saying the same. Soounds like the indelying theme is those who don’t keep our torah caused it whether zionism, chillul shaboos non frum. Seems to be that gedolim agree why it occurred just used diff langauge.
