Barcelona’s Chief Rabbi Tells Jews To Move To Israel Following Terror Attack

Following this week’s terrorist attacks in Barcelona, the city’s chief rabbi has warned his community that Jews in the region are doomed because of the threat of radical Islam and the alleged reluctance of authorities to confront it.

Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen has been encouraging his congregants to leave Spain, which he called a “hub of Islamist terror for all of Europe,” for years before the attacks happened on Thursday and Friday, he said.

At least 14 people were killed and over 100 injured in two separate terrorist attacks in Barcelona and the nearby coastal town of Cambrils. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack on Las Ramblas in Barcelona.

“I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel,” Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen said in an interview with Jewish news agency JTA.

“This place is lost. Don’t repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than late.”

Bar-Hen said the attacks highlighted the presence of a large Muslim community with “radical fringes” in the region, and alleged Spanish authorities are reluctant to confront Islamist terrorism.

The rabbi cited the recent decision to allow Palestinian Leila Khaled to enter Spain for a book festival as apparent evidence of his claim. Khaled was involved in high-profile airplane hijackings in 1969 and 1970.

The rabbi, who was keen to stress that he was speaking in a private capacity and not on behalf of the community, also said this applied more widely to Europe as a whole.

“Europe is lost,” he concluded.

The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain appear not to share Bar-Hen’s pessimistic outlook. The organization issued a statement Thursday, saying: “Spanish Jews trust the State Security Corps that work daily to prevent radical fanatics and Islamists from sowing chaos and pain in our cities.”

    There problem here is this…The so called rabbi is most probably not actually a real Jew.. these modern day so called jews are khazarians form sth Russia..hundreds of yrs ago that converted to Judaism.. none of them know their so called tribal lineage because they are not actually of the lineage of any of the twelve tribes.. next time you meet a so called jew ask him this….What tribe are you from…he wont know.. he will have no idea because his actual lineage is khazarian.. and herein lies the problem associated with this story….The world doesn’t actually hate the jews… they actually hate the khazarians…… do your own research Youtube it!
