Jewish European Parliament: Zionism takes Power. (French & English)

Zionism takes power in Europe.  Ukrainian money backing a Jewish Parliament that will ensure Israeli policies are expanded into Europe.

“On Thursday 16th February, in the European Parliament, Brussels, 120 members of the elected Jewish European Parliament held their inaugural session to discuss the fears of European jews.
Why is a jewish European parliament a good idea?
Even though we already have a Jewish European Congress, this new Parliament is innovative on various points:
1. From a representation perspective. The Jewish European Congress only represents certain countries, the new Parliament represents a greater Europe of 47 countries.
2. Members of the Jewish Parliament are elected by “the Jewish people” and not by national representatives.
3. The Parliament is composed of Jews from all walks of life and can therefore offer a far more diverse view.
For the first time, at least in France, we asked Jews to elect their representatives. This direct representation cuts traditional ties with representation by the usual community leaders.
More than 400, 000 people voted, a huge first in Europe! Nearly 75, 000 in France alone!
There is not one association or institution in France that can claim to represent 75, 000 French citizens.

A reminder, the CRIF ( Representative Council for French Jewish Institutions) does not represent Jews themselves, rather around 30 associations that combined do not represent 75, 000 members.
Another example, JCall, the famous call to put pressure on Israel has only 8096 signatures to date. Jcall cannot claim to represent 75,000 French citizens.
The Raison Garder petition to counter JCall attracted 11, 538 signatures. Still way off the 75, 000 who voted for their French representatives.
We can also debate the term “representative”
For the first time in France, jews have the power to choose their representatives and in that alone this new Parliament is revolutionary.
But as France is not without its complainers, we have taken the time to read the criticism levied against us.
The fact that our elected members are not all “known” must make get on some French nerves. From our perspective we are overjoyed to see such diversity representing France, young, less young, orthodox and those who are not practicing, some personalities and some unknowns.
If the idea of this Parliament had been implemented by Shimon Peres a few years ago it would have been put in place by the European Jewish Union that is in charge of the entire organisation. The billionaire Ukrainian Igor Kolomoisky, principal donor, along with Vadim Rabinovitch created the Jewish European Union and both work closely with the Likud.
CRIF, the Jewish European Congress and other respectable organisations have taken on a considerable task, but these various organisations cannot claim to represent Jews in 47 European countries or to reflect the concerns of the Jewish European community.
This is the role of the new European Jewish Parliament that will have a greater and more democratic representation than existing organisations.

Its role will also be to defend certain European policies within the European community and in the countries where representatives are present.

Our idea is ambitious, it will give a platform from which our elected members can advocate and work together on problems such as, anti semitism, Holocaust denial, anti Zionism, integration issues, support for Israel etc. 

For European Israel relations, this new Parliament will give us the opportunity to create a pressure group supporting Israel and extending her influence into other domains.

The President of  Europe Israel, Jean Marc Moskowicz, has been elected to our Parliament.

Long live our Jewish Parliament.”

La séance inaugurale des 120 membres élus du premier Parlement Juif Européen, un nouveau forum innovateur où s’exprimeront les idées et les préoccupations des Juifs européens, s’est tenue jeudi 16 février dans le bâtiment du Parlement Européen à Bruxelles

En quoi un Parlement Juif Européen est-il une bonne idée ?

Bien qu’il existe un Congrès Juif Européen, ce nouveau Parlement Juif Européen est innovant sur bien des points :

– Tout d’abord sur le plan de la représentativité, contrairement au Congrès Juif Européen qui ne représente que quelques pays, le nouveau Parlement Juif représente une Europe élargie à 47 pays.

– A l’inverse du Congrès Juif Européen, les membres du Parlement Juif sont élus par le « peuple Juif » et non désignés par des instances représentatives nationales.

– Sur le plan de la diversité le nouveau Parlement est composé de Juifs de tous horizons, religieux et laïcs.

Pour la première fois, du moins en France, on a demandé aux Juifs de voter pour élire leurs représentants. Cette représentation directe est novatrice et tranche avec les vieilles habitudes d’une représentation par les dirigeants communautaires habituels.

Plus de 400 000 personnes ont voté, une grande première en Europe ! Près de 75 000 votants rien que pour la France !

Jusqu’à ce jour aucune instance, aucune association ou institution ne peut se vanter de représenter en France près de 75 000 personnes.

Pour mémoire, le CRIF (Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives Françaises) ne représente pas les Juifs eux-mêmes mais une trentaine d’associations qui à elles toutes ne comptabilisent pas 75 000 adhérents, loin s’en faut.

Autre exemple de représentativité, JCall, le fameux appel à faire pression sur Israël, n’a recueilli que 8096 signatures à ce jour. JCall pourrait-il prétendre à être plus représentatif que les 75 000 votants français ?

Raison Garder pétition pour laquelle nous nous sommes beaucoup mobilisés contre l’appel JCall a recueilli 11 538 signatures. On est là encore bien loin des 75 000 français ayant participé à élire leurs représentants français.

On peut ainsi débattre longuement de la notion de « représentativité ».

Pour la première fois en France, les Juifs ont eu directement la parole en pouvant choisir leurs représentants et en cela ce nouveau Parlement est innovant.

Mais comme la France ne serait pas la France sans ses grincheux, nous n’avons guère tardé à entendre ou lire des critiques acerbes sur ce Parlement Juif.

Que les élus à ce Parlement ne soient pas tous « connus » doit vraisemblablement faire grincer quelques dents françaises. Pour notre part nous sommes très heureux de voir des personnalités aussi diverses représenter la France, des jeunes et des moins jeunes, des religieux et d’autres moins pratiquants, quelques personnalités et des inconnus…

Si l’idée de ce parlement fût émise à l’origine par Shimon Peres il y a quelques années, elle fût mise en place par l’European Jewish Union qui s’est chargée de toute l’organisation. Le milliardaire ukrainien Igor Kolomoisky, principal donateur, ainsi que Vadim Rabinovitch ont créé l’European Jewish Union, et ils sont proches du Likoud.

Le CRIF, le Congrès juif européen et d’autres organisations respectables abattent un travail considérable, mais ces divers organisations ne peuvent prétendre à elles seules représenter directement 47 pays européens ni refléter les préoccupations du « monde Juif » européen.

C’est le rôle de ce nouveau Parlement Juif Européen d’avoir une représentation bien plus large et démocratique que les organisations existantes.

C’est aussi son rôle de prendre des positions européennes qui seront défendues tant devant la Communauté Européenne que dans les divers pays ayant des représentants.

Idée ambitieuse, donnons une chance à ces nouveaux élus de montrer que les Juifs européens peuvent se fédérer et travailler ensembles sur les problématiques communes tels que l’antisémitisme, le négationnisme, l’antisionisme, les problèmes de l’assimilation, le soutien à Israël, etc…

Pour Europe Israël ce nouveau Parlement Juif Européen nous donne l’opportunité de créer un groupe de pression en soutien à Israël en étendant son champ d’action à d’autres domaines.
Le Président d’Europe Israël, Jean-Marc MOSKOWICZ, a été élu à ce parlement.

Nous  souhaitons longue vie au Parlement Juif Européen et un travail fécond !

  1. Pingback: THE PLACE OF ISRAEL IN THE FORCES OF EVIL | danielmabsout

  2. Couple of thoughts:

    Can we get 100000 French, and equivalent numbers in other countries, to register as Jews and thus choose the representative of this parliament? Who is a Jew?
    Can we create a Muslim EP? A white one? A Christian one? A male one? A goy one? At what point is such a body considered racist/sexist?
    Is it legal to discriminate against non-Jews in electing this parliament? Is it legal to discriminate against Jews in a goy parliament?
