Denmark - On the heels of last week’s terrorist incident aboard a Thalys train headed to Paris from Amsterdam, Dutch Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs revealed on Sunday that Dutch authorities warned him a year ago to try to avoid traveling by train.

JTA.org (http://bit.ly/1N4PWA9) reports that Jacobs offered up the admission during a Sunday speech in front of a gathering in Oosterbee celebrating his 40th anniversary of serving the Jewish community.

Jacobs said the train terror attack—-which left five injured after a man opened fire before ultimately being wrestled into submission by heroic passengers—-serves as an “illustration” that the threat isn’t “only for Jews.”

“We are in the same boat,” Jacobs said, before adding that police had in fact warned him against train travel due to his high-profile position.

As Europe gets more and more Islamic people living there, the nations seem to be undergoing a serious threat to the white Christian way of life, not to mention, the serious danger to just being Jewish.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

It's not Denmark (you start with) but The Netherlands and he is not the Dutch Chief Rabbi. He is one of the respected retired Rabbis in Holland. What kind of journalism is this? No checking of facts? Get your information correct before publishing. How can we believe the rest to be correct. I'm sure the context of what the police advised him and his speech was different.
