Wherein Lies the Root Causes of Social Instability?

Since the outbreak of the Middle East crisis, anti-Israel protests are spreading in European countries. Against this backdrop, anti-Semitism and hate crimes against Muslims have become rampant, resulting in causing antagonism, hostility and disorder across the society.

The British newspaper “Independent” reported on November 18 that more than 100 rounds of protests were staged in all parts of Britain including the Prime Minister’s residence, calling for ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and that the major streets and places of Britain and Ireland are jammed with pro-Palestine protesters at every weekend.

The major press in Europe are carrying articles one after another that the flames of anti-Israel protests lit in Berlin with the Middle East crisis as an occasion are now spreading all across Europe.

BFM TV of France, BBC and Reuters of Britain and other media reported in succession that 400 more cases of crimes against Semitism have been committed as against the same period of last year in Britain where they have the second largest Jewish community after France and that the British authorities have allocated € 3.5 million to strengthen security in the places where Jews get together often. They also reported that Germany has recorded more than 1 800 cases of crimes against Semitism.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of the Interior of France released a report to the effect that the number of crimes against Semitism has increased twice as many as last year since the October 7 crisis in the Middle East. According to the report, more than 1 150 crimes against Semitism have been recorded and about 500 have been arrested. The President of France also expressed concern that the Middle East crisis could lead to domestic violence in France.

In London alone, more than 100 hate crimes against Muslims have been recorded during the last 18 days after the outbreak of the Middle East crisis.

The Middle East crisis not only stirs up social panic and anxiety in the European countries but also has a great impact on political situation at home.

The BBC and other major media of the UK reported that dispute between the leader of the Labor Party and several MPs over the issue of implementing ceasefire in the Gaza Strip has become more and more acrimonious, creating great distress to the former which was confident of victory in the parliamentary election next year.

With the parliamentary election just ahead, the coalition parties in the Netherlands, i.e. Labor Party and Green Left were engaged in the heated debate over the attitude towards the Middle East crisis.

This resulted in the leader of Green Left giving up his candidacy.

The major Western media and analysts argued that the armed conflict between Palestine’s Hamas and Israel is stirring up extreme anxiety and fear within the European countries and posing threats to stability and security in Europe.

They are unanimously commenting that the root causes lie in the erroneous Middle East policy of the West.
