France: In response to burka ban, muslims don yellow star reminiscent of star Jews wore in Nazi Germany

Do you like this story?

But these muslims are either completely ignorant of islamic history, or complete idiots: It was not Hitler who originated the star worn by Jews, but a muslim ruler, some 1000 years ago. Funny, how islam and nazism always seem inextricably linked, isn’t it?

Irony: Muslims Don Yellow Star

French Muslims found a way to protest the banning of burqas that proves insensitivity or at best, crass ignorance.

How ironic. French Muslims are putting on the symbol of the persecution of Jews. 

In all of Europe, the country with the most numerous Muslim population is France. In response to many native Frenchman’s fears that their national culture is being subverted by a growing Islamic influx, as well as security concerns, the government of France overwhelmingly placed a ban on wearing full-face veils in public. In response to this, several protests were instituted by various Islamic groups in the streets of Paris.

These protests included the distribution of ‘green stars,’ which were to be worn by Muslims as a sign of symbolic persecution. On April 11, 2011, the day the headscarf ban took effect, French and international television reports showed Muslims distributing these five pointed green stars. Abderahmane Dahmane, the French President’s former “diversity adviser,” called on Muslims to wear the green star (the declared color of Islam) a move deliberately reminiscent of the yellow stars forced on the Jews by the Germans, Bulgarians and others during the era of the Holocaust.

One would think that the French Muslim leadership would be more urbane than to compare the banning of the headscarf to the mass murder and torture of six million innocent people. Yet, these sorts of protests are not original. In 1994, Muslims in France sported yellow crescents on their arms while marching with the slogan, “When is it our turn?” an explicit allusion to the Holocaust and the yellow stars the Jews were mandated to wear during WWII.

Nonetheless, there is something ironic about all of this ‘stars’ business, for it was not Hitler who mandated the yellow star, but the leaders of the Islamic religion some 1200 years earlier. With the Pact of Umar, a 9th century set of guidelines between conquering Muslims and conquered non-Muslims, both Jews and Christians could gain their safety by complying with the wearing of a distinct yellow indicator of their non-Islamic status. Subsequent to this, Muslims mandated Jews wore distinct clothing, often yellow, and/or stars, from Islamic Spain to Syria and Iraq and out as far as Persia.
 
This unsophisticated route the Islamic leadership in France has elected to take as a form of protest at the banning of the headscarf, is not only hypocrisy at the highest level, but demonstrates a lack of understanding of the history of their own religion and a crass insensitivity to the Jewish people.

    What a bunch of son of bitches…
    They persecute Jews, DENY THE EXISTENCE OF THE JEWISH HOLOCAUST, support, justify terrorist attacks against Jews, say that Jews are “sons of pigs and monkeys” and yet, have the gall to wear yellow stars ?

    Nope. It didn’t surprise me a bit. From muslims, I always expect the lowest, dirtiest schemes. That’s what they do, that’s what they represent on Earth.

    OK, so they’re ignorant jerks, at the least. But don’t tell them about it. Let them find out about it themselves. That will be a more effective indictment against their “leaders”.

    This is totally horrible. comparing a violation of their civil rights to the holocaust. Not like Americans. We’ve never compared anything to the holocaust to make someone listen to our argument. Except government health care. And environmentalism. And the boy scouts.

    Regardless of what Muslims did historically to Jewish people, the message is valid. Incidentally, Muslims may have oppressed Jewish people at some point, but now Jewish people are taking delight in letting sick Muslims die at checkpoints. Telling someone that they are forbidden from wearing a certain cloth is a violation of their rights. It’s a direct attack on who they are. And that is the same as making the Nuremburg Laws, because those were laws with no justification. They simply said, ‘Because you are Jewish, we will harm you’.

      “TrulyFair”, your post doesn’t live up to your nickname. You simply CAN’T compare the infamous Nuremberg Laws (1935) to anything allegedly done to “violate” muslim’s rights.
      Jews lived in the territory that became Germany since the first century A.D., whereas the country per se was only founded in 1871. They were subjected to persecution, torture, mass expulsions, widespread defamation based upon religious grounds – and yet, Jews became teachers, composers, scientists, musicians, engineers, politicians and even footsoldiers that actually DIED in order to defend their beloved Deutschland during WWI.
      Muslims endured NOTHING similar to the ordeals Jews went through, nor contributed to France, Netherlands, Germany even 1/1000th of what Jews did… Germany was AWARDED for persecuting Jews just a year later…with the Summer Olympic Games, held in Berlin, in 1936.
      Remember that Jews also didn’t commit suicide bombings nor vowed to impose the Halacha (Jewish Law) upon their non-Jewish countrymen at any circunstance. Jews don’t proselytize – Muslims do. Jews don’t issue fatwas – Muslims do.

          Your response was weak and senseless. You ought to grow up, read a lot more in order to meddle in MEN’S TALK.

            No it wasn’t, it was concise.
            I should be mature, like you. Which essentially means calling someone stupid and not manly enough to participate in the discussion. You round it off nicely by typing with the caps lock on, which makes you sound like you have Tourette’s syndrome

          Gonna be real awkward when the Muslims are out of the way and it’s just the Jews and the Christians. There’s gonna be a lot of explaining to do about a certain people claiming that the Jews totally took credit for the killing of a certain Messiah in the Bible. Why don’t you read Matthew 27:25 since you’re such a big fan ‘a scripture there, fella? Oh and take your time with the response, I can wait another 2 months
