Oskar Deutsch, the president of the Jewish community organization in the Austrian capital, said that the plan hatched by a far-right politician in the Lower Austria region would entail compiling a list of Jews, harking back to the dark years of Nazi rule.
“That’s like a non-Aryan clause,” Deutsch told a meeting of the Jewish community in Vienna on Monday night, in comments reported by the Wiener Zeitung news outlet — a reference to the Nazi racial legislation imposed in Austria following the “Anschluss,” or union, between Austria and Hitler’s Germany in March 1938. An April 1933 ban on kosher slaughter was one of the first legislative acts of the Nazi regime. more …
Opinion: Daniel 11:3 “Then a mighty king shall arise, who shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.”
Two hundred years after Daniel wrote these words an evil king rose in Syria, Antiochus Epiphanes, who ruled from 175 BC to 164 BC. Antiochus is widely recognized by prophecy scholars as a precursor to the final antichrist, or the little horn of Daniel 8:9.
A common characteristic of Antichrist figures throughout history is to systematically eliminate every vestige of Jewish life.
First-century historian Josephus:
“Now Antiochus was not satisfied either with his unexpected taking the city [Jerusalem] or with its pillage, or with the great slaughter he had made there; but being overcome with his violent passions, and remembering what he had suffered during the siege, he compelled the Jews to dissolve the laws of their country, and to keep their infants uncircumcised,
and to sacrifice swine’s flesh upon the altar; against which they all opposed themselves, and the most approved among them were put to death.”
Austria’s government is split between conservative Catholic Alexander Kurz who desires a stronger relationship with Israel, and the FPÖ (Freedom Party) leader Heinz–Christian Strache, a far-right party whose members have in the past expressed xenophobic and anti-Semitic sentiments.
Gottfried Waldhäusl — a local cabinet minister and farmer who represents the Freedom Party claims his proposal that would result in a ban on the sale of kosher meat to all except those Jews who have registered for an exemption permit is based in concerns about “animal welfare”.
So once again, in the nation that birthed Adolf Hitler, Jews are being required to be on a list in order to practice their faith. How different is that from Nazi-era badges?
