Leading rabbi urges EU to let Jews carry guns

The biggest Jewish association in the EU has called on lawmakers in Brussels to let Jewish people carry guns “for the essential protection of their communities” in the aftermath of Paris shootings.

According to the Russia Today, Rabbi Menachem Margolin, general director of the European Jewish Association (EJA) wrote an open letter to MPs, saying “The Paris attacks, as well as the many challenges and threats which have been presented to the European Jewish community in recent years, have revealed the urgent need to stop talking and start acting.”

Claiming that people killed in the Paris grocery store “were murdered in cold blood for no other reason than being Jewish,” Margolin asked for "gun licensing laws to be reviewed with immediate effect to allow designated people in the Jewish communities and institutions to own weapons for the essential protection of their communities.”

The association also asked the EU authorities to allow the Jewish population to receive “the necessary training to protect their members from potential terror attacks.”

The letter calls on Brussels to recognize “the warning signs of anti-Semitism, racism, and intolerance that once again threaten Europe and our European ideals.”

“As you know, the danger is that much greater as many Europeans travel abroad to be indoctrinated into radical Islam, before returning to their European homelands to use their militant training to devastating effect.”

Margolin told the Washington Free Beacon website, where the letter was first published that anti-Semitism in Europe has seen a “dramatic increase.”
