Liberman: Want Jewish children and grandchildren? Move to Israel

Avigdor Liberman, chairman of the Yisrael Beytenu Party, said on Tuesday that Jews who “want their children and grandchildren to remain Jewish have only one choice – move to Israel as soon as possible.”

Liberman’s comments came Tuesday, almost 48 hours after Jewish and non-Jewish leaders across Israel and the US hastily responded to antisemitic comments by Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, who tweeted that she believes AIPAC is paying politicians to be pro-Israel.

“A wave of antisemitism is sweeping the world and gaining momentum,” Liberman said in the statement. “Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar in the US Congress expresses support for the BDS movement and writes antisemitic tweets.”

Liberman noted that Omar’s tweets are not isolated but are part of a rising wave of antisemitic incidents around the world, as well as an increasing rate of assimilation. 

“Neo-Nazi demonstrations with hundreds of participants take place in Budapest, Hungary, and the police don’t lift a finger,” he said. “Antisemitic slurs are hurled at Jews on the London Underground and on the Frankfurt express train in Germany. In the heart of Paris, yellow paint was sprayed on a Jewish-owned restaurant and the word ‘Jude’ was written all over it.”

Specifically, he cited a 16% increase in antisemitic incidents in Britain and a 74% increase in France.

“Jews throughout the world, and in Europe in particular, must draw conclusions from these antisemitic incidents,” Liberman said.
