‘If Europe Isn’t Safe for Jews, it Isn’t Safe for Europeans’

The agenda needs to be “broadened” beyond BDS and anti-Semitism, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi Emeritus of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, told Arutz Sheva on Monday.

Rabbi Lord Sacks spoke after taking part in a rountdable panel entitled "Islam and BDS in Europe: A Strategic Threat?" at the 2015 Herzliya Conference.

“We have to broaden the agenda, widen people’s attention spans, [and] create allies among the Christians and moderate Muslim communities, and make Europe itself realize that if Europe is not safe for Jews, it is not safe for Europeans, and if we cannot defend Israel in Europe then you will not be able to defend freedom,” he said.
