Barbara Lerner Spectre calls for destruction of Christian European ethnic societies | 27Abr2015 13:00:18
NARRATOR: As we heard, there are people in Sweden who support Israel and have a deep sense of the injustice of the present situation. It is these people who give hope to those who still believe that things will get better here.
One of them is Barbara Spectre, a former American who made Aliya* and then ten years ago, with the help of the government of Sweden set up a non-denominational institute of jewish learning with the Greek name of Paideia, here in Stockholm. She believes the current wave if anti-semitism in Sweden will pass. And that jews have an important role to play in a country undergoing profound change.
SPECTRE: “I think there’s a resurgence of anti-semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural, and I think we’re gonna be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”
