As Walter Matthau’s character of Professor Groeteschele asked rhetorically in the 1964 film classic Fail-Safe: “How long would the Nazis have kept it up, General, if every Jew they came after had met them with a gun in his hand?” With the connection between the Third Reich and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem well documented, as well as a huge surge of the Islamist Jihadist demographic in Europe due to unrestricted immigration, a top Jewish leader in Western Europe is asking permission for the continent’s remaining Jews for the right to keep and bear arms.

As reported by The Washington Free Beacon and also The Jewish Daily Forward, both on Jan. 15, 2015, General Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin of the European Jewish Association has sent a letter of petition to the European Union (EU) asking that new legislation be passed that would allow members of the various nations’ Jewish community to own firearms specifically for self-defense.

In a letter obtained by reporter Adam Kredo of the Free Beacon, Rabbi Margolin requests of the international organization that the particularly onerous European gun laws be amended so the Children of Abraham can carry guns “for the essential protection of their communities.”

On the heels of the recent Paris Massacre that resulted in the slaughter of police officers, staffers and journalists at the offices of the often insulting Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine, and also shoppers at a Parisienne kosher market, French soldiers and police have taken to beefing up security at synagogues, Jewish schools, and other Judaic-centered institutions and organizations.

Referencing the reported tens of thousands of Muslims holding passports of various European nations who have pledged allegiance to the ISIS terrorist network, Rabbi Margolin also penned to the EU honchos, “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.”
