“I never thought I would see the day when members of the Jewish community in the United Kingdom would say they were fearful of remaining here in the United Kingdom.” The hopelessly confused Ms. May doesn’t seem to realize that the Jews without whom Britain would not be Britain are fearful of remaining there because of the Muslims without whom Britain would not be Britain.
Also, a very good case can be made that “without its Jews Britain would not be Britain,” as there is a very long history of Jews in Britain. It is mostly an unhappy history, and those ugly times are returning, but it is undeniable that Jews have contributed to what makes Britain Britain. But “without its Muslims, Britain would not be Britain”? Really? Theresa May must therefore think that Britain wasn’t Britain until the last few decades, when Britain for the first time in its history began to have a significant Muslim presence.
Theresa May is a disgrace. Then again, so is the rest of the Cameron government, and its opposition. Britain is racing to ruin, courtesy of Theresa May and her ilk.
“Theresa May says ‘without its Jews Britain would not be Britain,'” by Ben Tufft, The Independent, January 18, 2015:
Theresa May has said that greater efforts must be made to combat anti-Semitism and “without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain”.
The Home Secretary asserted that the country would not be the same without people of different faiths, while she was speaking at an event in London to commemorate the victims of the Paris attacks.
Mrs May praised the contribution Jewish people make to the UK and said that the unity displayed in the French capital and around the world, with people repeating “Je suis Charlie” was “tremendous”.
But she said she was troubled at the threats now faced by Jewish people. “I never thought I would see the day when members of the Jewish community in the United Kingdom would say they were fearful of remaining here in the United Kingdom.”
Commenting on the French prime minister Manuel Valls’ statement: “If 100,000 Jews leave, France will no longer be French, the French Republic will be judged a failure,” Mrs May said: “It is a sentiment I well understand, one that holds true for Britain.
“Without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain, just as without its Muslims, Britain would not be Britain – without its Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and people of other faiths, Britain would not be Britain,” she added.
