                                           A Tribal Affair

    In addition to the newspapers they publish for the goyim to read, Jews have a number of publications intended to be read only by other Jews. From the latter there is a wealth of insight into the Jewish psyche to be gained. Some of the stories in these intramural Jewish publications are really interesting; others are merely bizarre, seeming almost to be about creatures of an entirely different species from us.

A story which appeared in the August 2 edition of the Jewish Chronicle (London) last year falls into both categories. The story begins: "Police were called to Stamford Hill, the heart of the strictly Orthodox community in London, during the weekend, when bricks were hurled at a house, a car was attacked by a crowd armed with metal bars, and a family was forced to leave its home. Police reports said over 100 people were involved in disturbances on Saturday and Sunday nights. The violence flared during demonstrations by strictly Orthodox Jews against the sentencing of 18‑year‑old Stamford Hill resident Eli Cohen for indecent assault against a five‑year‑old girl."

    Well, you must be thinking, obviously these intensely religious Jews were upset that someone had molested a five‑year‑old Jewish girl. They presumably were angry because the child molester wasn't given strict enough punishment for his crime. Wrong. The Jews were furious for two reasons: First, that charges were brought against a Jew for something that Orthodox Jews do not regard as a crime. Second, that the little girl's parents had committed the unforgivable sin of mesira by reporting the rape of their daughter to the Non-Jewish authorities.

    The Talmud, the authoritative compilation of commentary on Jewish oral law, prescribes death for a moser, a Jew who gives evidence against another Jew to a non‑Jew. The Jewish Chronicle article continues: "Trouble started early on Friday evening when a brick smashed a window at the home of the girl's family, who cannot be named for legal reasons. As Shabbat [i.e., the Sabbath, Saturday] ended the father of the family was warned that demonstrations were likely. His wife left the house and drove away, keeping in touch with her husband by car phone."

    I was in the car, together with two daughters of a family friend, when a large number of men stopped cars in front of me and behind me and then took metal bars to try to smash the windows," the mother said.

    Police rescued the mother and at the same time were attempting to control over 100 demonstrators, mostly young men, who were shouting abuse and threatening violence outside the family's home. Eggs were thrown at police officers and a number of arrests were made, although no one was charged. Demonstrators then mounted a picket outside Stoke‑Newington Police Station until almost 3 AM. One man who witnessed the demonstration outside the family's home said: "The street was crammed solid with people. The crowd were chanting `moiser' and `get out of town.'"

    Other witnesses said that "during the protest men and women had maintained religious separation. The men stood in front of the house and the women stood to the side. By Sunday both the parents were understood to be in a safe house outside of Stamford Hill, and there was a visible police presence in the area...A notice was displayed in local synagogues making it clear that police intended to take a firm line in any further demonstration."

    If the same story, related so matter‑of‑factly in the Jewish Chronicle, had been printed in the Times or any other publication for Non-Jews the Jews would have screamed about "anti‑Semitism" and denied that the incident even happened. A few Non-Jewish readers might have been aghast that Jews who lived in the same city with them had attempted to murder a Jewish family for reporting the rape of their five‑year‑old daughter by another Jew, but most readers simply wouldn't be able to comprehend it. They wouldn't be able to believe that Jews really are that alien, because Christian apologists for the Jews have been telling us for so long that Jews are just like us, except they have a different religion.
