Israeli Settler Rabbi Praises Islamic Takeover Of Europe

After the recent election of a hijab-wearing Muslim woman as the mayor of a Bosnian city, the first time in Europe’s history a traditional Muslim woman had been elected to such a high office, a student who studies orientalism reportedly used the Kipa website’s ask the rabbi feature to ask Rabbi Baruch Efrati a question.
"How do we fight the Islamization of Europe and return it to the hands of Christians and moderates?," the student asked.
Efrati, who heads a yeshiva and serves as the community rabbi in the West Bank city of Efrat, didn’t see the Islamization of Europe as a bad thing.
"With the help of God, the gentiles there will adopt a healthier life with a lot of modesty and integrity, and not like the hypocritical Christianity which appears pure but is fundamentally corrupt," Efrati wrote.
"Jews should rejoice at the fact that Christian Europe is losing its identity as a punishment for what it did to us for the hundreds of years were in exile there," Efrati continued, quoting descriptions from rabbinic literature from the middle ages about atrocities committed by Christians against Jews.
"We will never forgive Europe's Christians for slaughtering millions of our children, women and elderly…Not just in the recent Holocaust, but throughout the generations, in a consistent manner which characterizes all factions of hypocritical Christianity…and now, Europe is losing its identity in favor of another people and another religion, and there will be no remnants and survivors from the impurity of Christianity, which shed a lot of blood it won't be able to atone for,” Efrati claimed.
According to Efrati, the theological reason for this alleged fall of Christianity is that Christianity, which Efrati claims is idolatrous, tends to "destroy normal life and abstain from it on the one hand, while losing modesty on the other hand," as it "ranges between radical monasticism to radical Western licentiousness."
But Islam, Efrati claimed, is "a religion which misjudges its prophets but is [otherwise] relatively honest. It educates a bit more for a stable life of marriage and creation, where there is certain modesty and respect for God."
“[E]ven if we are in a major war with the region's Arabs over the Land of Israel, Islam is still much better as a gentile culture than Christianity,” Efrati asserted.
Despite this clear preference for Islam, Efrati added that Jews must still pray that the Islamization of of Europe won’t hurt the people of Israel.
Efrati did not need to ask his readers to pray that Israel and the Jewish people be protected from believing Christians, who have largely been friends of the Jewish State and Jews for the past 65 years. He also did not note that some of Hitler’s closest collaborators were Muslims like the Mufti of Jeruslaem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, and that Hitler easily formed a Muslim Bosnian SS unit to exterminate the area’s Jews.
