“(The measure) seeks to force the national governments of all 28 EU member states to establish ‘special administrative units’ to monitor any individual or group expressing views that the self-appointed guardians of European multiculturalism deem to be ‘intolerant’… (it) is so audacious in scope, while at the same time so vague in defining its terminology, that critics say the proposal, if implemented, would open a Pandora’s Box of abuse, thereby effectively shutting down the right to free speech in Europe.”
According to an article by Soeren Kern appearing in Right Side News on October 29th, “The “Model Statute for Tolerance” is a proposal of the “European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation”, (ECTR), a non-governmental organization established in Paris in 2008 by the former president of Poland, Aleksander Kwasniewski, and the president of the European Jewish Congress, Moshe Kantor.
Kwasniewski was a cabinet minister in Poland’s Communist government during the 1980’s.
The proposal provides for criminalisation of specified actions and behaviours, the forced “rehabilitation” of juvenile offenders, and requires schools to “… introduce courses encouraging students to accept diversity and promoting a climate of tolerance as regards the qualities and cultures of others.” And there is plenty more…
Kern quotes “European Dignity Watch” as saying that the proposal will “…subject the private life of citizens to legal uncertainty and the control of bureaucrats. It is about governmental control of social behavior of citizens. These tendencies begin to give the impression of long-passed totalitarian ideas and constitute an unprecedented attack on citizens’ rights.”
And all of this will be enforced by politically-correct ‘special administrative units’…
This is a lengthy, in-depth review of the proposal, and I highly recommend it.

“I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.” – Barbara Lerner Spectre.
