I’ve long ago said, Europe is lost forever. Lost to Islam. Lost to anti-Semitism. Lost to extremism. Lost to perverted moral relativism. And, of course, the last three are because of the first one–Islam.
That Was Then . . .
This Is Now . . .
So, it’s no surprise that a British judge and jury said that vandalism–destruction that could have killed many and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars–is okay . . . so long as it’s against the Jews or Israel (or someone doing business with or helping them). It’s really not too different than laws the Nazis had in place. And that’s no hyperbole.
The ends justifies the means, Judenrein-style. Yup, 1940 Europe repeats itself 70 years later. Today, they use the euphemism “Israel” as their excuse, but tomorrow, they’ll openly use the word “Jew”:
Five activists who caused £180,000 damage to an arms factory were acquitted after they argued they were seeking to prevent Israeli war crimes.
The five were jubilant after a jury found them not guilty of conspiring to cause criminal damage to the factory on the outskirts of Brighton.
The five admitted they had broken in and sabotaged the factory, but argued they were legally justified in doing so.
They believed that EDO MBM, the firm that owns the factory, was breaking export regulations by manufacturing and selling to the Israelis military equipment which would be used in the occupied territories. They wanted to slow down the manufacture of these components, and impede what they believed were war crimes being committed by Israel against the Palestinians.
After being acquitted, one of them, Robert Nicholls, told the Guardian: “I’m joyful really, at being a free man. The action was impulsive really, we just wanted to do something that would make a real difference to the people of Palestine.”
The acquitted are Nicholls, 52, Tom Woodhead, 25, Harvey Tadman, 44, Ornella Saibene, 50, all from Bristol, and Simon Levin [DS: In every anti-Semitic operation, there's always a kapo in there, somewhere], 35, from Brighton. They had decided to act last January after three weeks of Israeli military manoeuvres against Gaza in which many Palestinians were killed. . . .
In his summing up, Judge George Bathurst-Norman suggested to the jury that “you may well think that hell on earth would not be an understatement of what the Gazans suffered in that time”.
The judge highlighted the testimony by Caroline Lucas, the Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, that “all democratic paths had been exhausted” before the activists embarked on their action.
If you don’t think this could happen in America. Think again. It happens in courtrooms across the country every day. It happens against doctors, hospitals, professionals, corporations . . . with juries and judges out to get them because they are seen as prestigious and with deep pockets.
But tomorrow–a very soon tomorrow, sadly–it will be against Jews . . . because juries will think it’s okay and judges will tell them so.
Just like in 1939.
When you dumb down the rule of law for moral relativism and “the ends justifies the means,” you have lost society and civilization. And the West is well down that path.
