    Should Jews be allowed to carry weapons? After the attacks that happened in France and the general security issues in Europe, the leaders of the Jewish community have a disagreement, how to deal with the situation. It’s important to mention there is no umbrella organization of European Jews, there are a few which try however there are many different organizations. Similar is the situation by the Rabbonim; there is “V’idas Rabbonei Europe” and there are a few others including Chabad which joined together and created an organization called “Merkas Rabbonei Europe”. The name is similar, however they are completely different.

    “Merkas Rabbonei Europe”, requested last week for the European organizations to allow Jews to carry weapons to protect themselves and their organizations. “V’idas Rabbonei Europe” opposed this.

    The Rabbi of Belgium and a member of “V’idas Rabbonei Europe” Rabbi Avrohom Gigi said yesterday: “we had a calm Shabbos in Belgium however it is still tense. Based on the decision of the government, being that there is a shortage in police officers, there was a large amount of soldiers protecting the Shuls which allowed the Jews to march the streets proudly.”

    The government said that they are taking 12 measures to fight the terror.

    Some of the Jewish leaders said: “not to allow weapons, being that this is going to bring a great danger upon us. It will be like announcing that we don’t trust the government’s security. In addition, soon will come others and ask to carry weapons as well, it will become very dangerous.”

    A couple of days ago the head of “Merkas Rabbonei Europe”, Rabbi Menachem Margolin requested from the EU to allow heads of the Jewish communities or someone on their behalf to carry weopons.

    Rabbi Gigi asked not to listen to Rabbi Margolin.

    1. Those who are trained and licensed should of course be allowed to carry guns. Who on earth would oppose such a thing?
