Belgium: Is This a Misuse of the Yellow Star?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A Jewish organization in Europe has reacted in outrage at the use of a yellow star on a banner carried in Brussels on Sunday in protest against the Covid restrictions. The implication of the banner is that society is treating non-vaccinated people as Jews were treated in Germany in the 1930s and 40s. Many Jews see this as a trivialization of the Holocaust.

The below article from the French-language news outlet, 7Sur7, is translated by Fousesquawk.

Banner top to bottom: “Pass of shame……unvaccinated……….Everyday fascism”

“It makes me sick.”: The presence of the yellow star during a demonstration in Brussels shocks a Jewish association  

The European Jewish Association reacted in outrage Sunday at the yellow star represented on one of the banners of demonstrators participating in the march organized in Brussels against the health measures taken by the government to stem the spread of the Corona virus. “It is difficult to say how much of a mistake this is,” said Rabbi Menachem Margolin, president of the association.

“It’s hard for me to see the similarity between being asked to get vaccinated during a pandemic-or to assume the consequences if you don’t-and the systematic extermination of 6 million Jews in the death camps, the gas chambers, or in the open-air common graves,” said M. Margolin. 

“It makes me sick to think that so few people understand the pain that such banners provoke and that so few people truly realize the enormity and the magnitude of the Holocaust. To those who marched today with a large yellow star, I say: Don’t do it. It is of little importance what you think of the health restrictions, nobody is tattooing your arms, nobody is putting you in cattle trucks, and nobody wants you, your family, and your loved ones to die.

First of all, make sure you have the knowledge and know what this yellow start really represents,” the president of the European association reiterated.


Fousesquawk comment: I find it hard not to agree with Rabbi Margolin. And I say this as one who has worn a facsimile of the yellow star at a public event-to protest anti-Semitism-and who has often used Nazi imagery to protest present-day anti-Semitism. Take issue of that if you will, but there is a difference.

Whatever you or I think about restricting the movements of non-vaccinated people (and I have my reservations), it is a stretch to compare the isolation of unvaccinated people with the discrimination/isolation imposed on Jews by the Nazis even before the Holocaust began. Jews were forced to wear yellow stars, were not allowed to frequent restaurants, their shopping hours were restricted, etc. etc. Not because they had not been vaccinated, but because they were Jews. Eventually, they were forced to live in ghettos in occupied Eastern European countries during the war, while in Germany, several families were forced to live in a single designated “Jewish” residence” (before they were rounded up to be shipped East.)

To me, the use of the image of the yellow star should be reserved to protest modern-day anti-Semitism and should not be hijacked for other causes.

      First off Jews are not GOD’s chosen people ! They claim they worship lucifer ( aka – Satan , the dragon , the serpent , the devil ) . Next I find it hard to believe Hitler a Jew as well as his dad Jew Rothschild ( affair with maid ) who helped pay for mass murdering of German people which I believe was not Jews . Tracing Jews I find they are Esau Edomites claiming Zion status and rights to Israel .

      Hitler was murdering Judea which carries the King linage from King David ! Judea left Israel when Rome ( Esau Edomites ) in 70 AD began extermination of Judea in the land of Judea , Israel . The Esau Edomite Vatican also help pay for mass murder of Judea . After Judea left Germany they ran to France . The Vatican armies followed them and murdered the descendant of Jesus brothers and sisters ( Matthew 13:55-58 ) dispinia linage in the town of France on Oct. Friday the 13th . The Templers guardians of the Grail saved a few of them and ran to England .

      The Vatican armies found out and began chasing them in England , the Dispinia ( Jesus family linage ) then ran to Irealand , some back to Germany and other parts of Europe . The Esau Edomite Jew Vatican then began the catholic , prostant bombings in Ireland . Many ran to the new land of America . And even in America the Vatican has used Presidents to mass murder people of Judea durning hurricanes . There are mass graves in Texas and Louisiana . Today Esau Edomite Jews are pushing the vaccine mandates to murder White…
