mass immigration into European countries

Advanced opinion has long advocated mass immigration into European countries to prevent a rebirth of anti-Semitism by diluting their homogeneity and thus making nationalist sentiment impractical. Well, like the guns of Singapore, this policy proved to be pointing 180 degrees in the wrong direction - the real anti-Semites in countries like France turned out to be the immigrants. Plus, the anti-nationalist EU-loving mainstream politicians of Europe have shown an anti-Israeli streak that borders on anti-Semitism. Why? I suspect because Israel represents the opposite of what the European Union is trying to accomplish: the emasculation of the nationalist impulse. The Jewish State is a pre-1914-style heredity-based nation-state, with some of the same kind of territorial fears and ambitions that brought nationalism into disrepute in contemporary Europe.
