British court: Judaism is racism

The British High Court of Appeal decided that a Jewish Free School discriminated against pupils on racial grounds when it limited admission to Jews only.

The case was brought by a woman who “converted” to Judaism under the Reform canon, which involves little more than an Allah Akbar declaration. Her child, naturally, was denied admission into an Orthodox school.

The court ruled that the admission criterion was ethnic rather than religious. Then Christian schools are also ethnic, because the pupils are children of Christian parents and made no conscious choice of religion themselves. It is also unclear why religious discrimination is legal while ethnic discrimination is not.

If the House of Lords upholds the appeal court’s decision, the twenty-three-centuriy-old system of Jewish education may fall apart under the onslaught of those who seek free education for their children in private Jewish schools. More likely, Jews will exclude the gentiles implicitly with measures such as private scholarships to Jews only.

Lest you think that the British court is just anti-Semitic, the Israeli High Court ruled years ago that the Jewish National Fund cannot refuse to lease Arabs land bought and developed with private Jewish money.
