The future of Spanish Jewry

Should Jews leave Spain? Following last Thursday’s jihadist attack in Barcelona, Barcelona’s chief rabbi, Meir Bar- Hen, told a reporter that he is urging his community members to flee Spain for Israel.

“I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel,” he said.

“This place is lost,” he warns, adding, “Don’t repeat the mistakes of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than late. Europe is lost.”

The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain rejected Bar-Hen’s warning. It issued a statement last Thursday saying its member have “full confidence in the security forces who work daily to prevent fanatics and radical Muslims from inflicting pain and chaos on our cities.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
