Ben Shapiro: Ill-assimilated Muslims are contributing to the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe

Glenn Beck

As Ben Shapiro filled in for "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday, he raised a critical issue facing Jews in Europe that surprisingly made headlines in the left-leaning, mainstream media. The article Ben referenced on the program, "Anti-semitism is still alive in Germany as Jews face 'disturbing' discrimination," delved into the evidence that, due to Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow nearly 1 million Muslim refugees into Germany, anti-Semitism from ill-assimilated Muslims is now contributing to disturbingly high rates of discrimination against Jews in Europe.

"I visited France a couple of years ago with my wife," said Ben, "and there are certain districts in France where you do not want to travel if you are a Jew wearing a yarmulka."

The article stated that "Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision in 2015 to open the nation's arms to 1 million mostly Muslim refugees has created a double threat for Germany's roughly 120,000 Jews: rising anti-Semitism from the newcomers and a resurgent right-wing nationalist movement spawned by the arrival of so many immigrants."

The article focuses on Mikhail Tanaev, a Jew who emigrated to Germany in 1998 from Russia. He told USA Today, " When I arrived in Germany ... I never saw such displays." The displays he's referring to occurred in the middle of Berlin where Israeli flags were burned in the middle of the streets following the U.S.'s decision to move the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"I never thought that could happen in the middle of Berlin. That's something you see in other parts of the world. It's really disturbing," Tanaev said. "It feels like we're being threatened because you never know how people will react further when something like this occurs."
