Why the European Union Will Die

 

After our Brexit article some inquired why we claimed the European Union would die, or more aptly, implode, as we had stated at one point. A few expressly pointed to the fact that there were signs of economic recovery and that the steps taken by the European Union were working to bring the troubled nations, especially Spain and Italy, back from the brink. While it would be quite a blessing should the European Union make a recovery of unparalleled dimensions resembling the great periods of the post-World War II era but the likelihood is slender as there is not about to be another Marshall Plan as the United States too is facing lean years and will be working on their own recovery for the immediate future. The challenges to the Western World are mounting and if not addressed and some mitigation found the refugees flowing into Europe and North America on top of the brutal effects the refugees are placing on Turkey and more so on Jordan threaten to topple leaders as the strains on the economies will be extensive.

 

The challenge for Europeans as well as Turkey and Jordan will be to alter the manner in which they treat refugees and those who come from foreign extraction and to integrate them into their society rather than all but forcing them to live in autonomous zones separate and anything but equal. The French produced a 2,200-page report, “Banlieue de la République.” The report had numerous suggestions and goals which could be enacted which might alleviate some of the difficulties but are unlikely to see the light of day. The challenges listed in the French report can easily be applied to the other nations, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Finland, Britain and other nations will be a test of whether Europe can adapt and commit to integrating those who are unlike the native population as unless the Muslims are integrated and have opportunities the probability of rioting and radicalization rises. We are not equating lack of work and the other poverty and similar tags which have often been blamed for terrorism as not even claiming that their frustration and lack of address of grievances by government will produce terrorism, we are identifying such as a drain on the finances and budgetary balancing will be a factor which may tip the scales from an affordable situation to a destabilizing financial drain. Such situations can also be exploited leading to rioting and lawlessness. The same is true for Turkey and Jordan as their economies are not so vigorous such that they can integrate the thousands upon thousands of refugees which are streaming across their borders. Jordan has the added problem of refugees streaming in from Iraq as well. Even Israel is feeling some financial effects as she is called upon increasingly to provide medical treatment both for refugees as well as injured fighters from the various factions in the Syrian war zones, many of which are bordering the Israeli Golan Heights which makes Israel the best place to get emergency treatments. 

 

What will come about is the death of the European Union as a super-governance or providing a standard currency and economic plans as it has been the disparate rules and economic plans which are not universal which has caused much of the problems. With the work week standard being a 40 hour week we find that those who do work from national average to another are surprising in the numbers we were able to find from 2013 with Greece leading at 42.0 and the Netherlands with a mere 30.0 (see below).

The next important, actually vital, statistic is the unemployment rate by nation. We found records for 2014 and 2015 graphed (see below) where the lowest recorded at 5% for Austria followed closely by Germany and with Greece and Spain hovering at about 25%. During our researching we found that Youth unemployment usually ran from half again to around double the figures for population in total.

Another measure of the health of an economy is the debt to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), a measurement where the lower the percentage the healthier the national economy. The percentages range from Sweden at 38% all the way to Greece at 157%. (see below) The one regularity which one has seen consistently was that Greece and Spain are at the end of the figures which are least desirable and Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and the Scandinavian nations tend to be the most desirable positions which also explains why these nations rated amongst the happiest of nations in Europe. The main rational behind these numerous graphs and statistics was to generate the vast disparity between many of the European Union nations and to point out why the sharing of a singular currency, the Euro, places strains and limitations on the necessary monetary policies each individual nation has at their disposal as well as economic policy restrictions. For those at the disadvantaged end of the scales their not having their own adjustable currency means that they must make allowances in policies to the largest economic powers as they drive the European Union’s viability but while doing so they imperil the lesser economies.

The difficulties the European Union is facing goes beyond the individual national monetary and fiscal policies and the single currency enforcing economic policies of the strongest power nations upon the least national economies thus perpetuating their difficulty and in most cases condemning them to deficit spending and an ever rising debt load with little if any recourse. The financial difficulties are aggravated further by the bureaucracy in Brussels which continues to grow and demand more and more treasure be skimmed from the economy of the entirety of the European Union nations. This results in an ever more drastic effect upon the economically weaker nations sending their finances ever further into the red. The European Union regulation are simply one more drain on every economy throughout the European Union and once more the effect is disproportionally more dramatic on the weakest once again. When one observes the growth of the European Union Legislation and Legal Action Surge one starts to realize exactly where and why the European Union will eventually legislate itself out of existence.

The vote next month will tell the story and will very likely be the last chance for the Western World to finally start to turn away from socialism and its guaranteed outcomes instead of simply providing a guaranteed equality of opportunity and a level playing field. Initially when the precursor of the European Union started, the European Common Market, it worked well as it basically created a low or no tariff zone within Europe for its member states. By the time it had grown and transited into the European Union it was already showing signs of becoming a super governance which was obviously heading to becoming the central power over the entirety of Europe. This was made all the worse by the fact that many of those in positions of influence and power were unelected individuals who need not report to any individual nation as they were employed to look out for the European Union and not babysit or hold the hand of any one country. From this humble beginning the European Union began to write large edicts. Many were about certain levels of pollutants one might put into the air, water or ground and also writing the procedures for handling and disposing of poisonous chemicals. Many of these regulations were quite important such as where to store spent nuclear fuel rods safely. The European Union also set standards for each nation on pollution control due to agreements entered into either by the nations or the European Union. Soon the European Union has become a super government which rules in a dictatorial manner with the individual European nations being incapable of altering their relations once a decision has come down from on high in Brussels.

 

This is part of what has galled many British voters and it is only the youth who have graduated within the past decade and probably left university knowing less than they went in but are now assured that they know everything and it will be their charge to come out and teach those out in the workforce what is the only approved manner of performing any work. They will expound regularly the complaints about income inequality and how it is not fair that older people receive higher salaries just because they have proven their ability, which, they will tell us, is a form of ageism except this particular time it is the youth at a disadvantage. Once the youth of today become a majority, be prepared for their instruction in college to come to the fore in our society and Capitalism will disappear and Socialism will become the new perfection of society and our national problems. They will address the income inequality by setting a maximum wage one will be permitted. Let us assume we have two people, one making 35,000 Euro per year and another making 250,000 Euro per year. Without even addressing how these two individuals came to be making such different amounts but will defer to the one making the higher wage and simple make the difference far less. Their newly adjusted salaries after the equality of worth standings are applied result in the first gentleman going from making 35,000 Euros per year to making 95,000 Euros per year and the gentleman who once made 250,000 Euros per year will now be making 135,000 Euros per year leaving the government with 55,000 Euros in redistribution fees. This will be the future when the youth get to make all the decisions across Europe and then slowly the rest of the Western World. Between an economy teetering on the point of exasperation and a flooding of refugees who are largely seeking the government relief and expecting the government to feed, clothe and house them and pay them salaries as they were told was their right upon arrival. The refugees seeking such as this will be the lesser of the problems as there are those who upon arrival disappeared into the woodwork and have yet to be found and it is these individuals who are most likely terrorists planted within the midst of the Europeans and the Americans and Western nations as ticking time bombs primed and ready to detonate at a moment’s notice.

President Obama’s Last State of the Union Address Finally Done

Part 2

 

Here we go picking up where we left off picking on and picking faults, discrepancies and blatant lies all while trying to maintain our sanity by making light of what will result in the kick-off of President Obama’s long ago promised and much anticipated by extreme leftists and haters of all things America who agree with the President that the problem with the world has been and always was an America that was too powerful, too imperialist, too influential, too concerned and too interventionist even when America seldom kept the lands they liberated returning the greatest majority back to their former governance or to the people to choose their own future with any and all assistance they required in instigating a governance which was chosen and would continue to be chosen by the people in free, open, honest elections where the actual votes mattered and the government was answerable to the ballot box. This President decided that the United States remaining in Iraq and Afghanistan was detrimental to the free choices of the people and was there as a conqueror imposing America’s will onto the people so he removed the United States troops and the vast majority suffered not only in Afghanistan and Iraq but across the Middle East and North Africa as while President Obama had no trouble allowing governments to be overthrown, he saw no role for the United States in preserving the possibility for change if only there was some means of preventing the fracturing in Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iraq and starting now in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The sole saving grace in the MENA revolutions was Egypt where the Muslim Brotherhood was removed from power before they could cement their Islamist Sharia nightmare and cast Egypt into another Iran like power except this time Sunni and the Sinai Peninsula is still in open revolt and lawlessness threatening both Egypt and Israel and potentially Jordan and western Saudi Arabia while assisting Iran in arming Hamas even further. So, now let’s get back to the speech after this commercial interruption.

 

“Medical research is critical; we need the same level of commitment when it comes to developing clean energy sources. Look, if anybody wants to dispute the science around climate change, then have at it. You will be pretty lonely.” Then he listed a litany of organizations, branches of government, the military, and so on. Does anybody know what the unifying thing was about that list? Yes, you right here……. Yes, that’s it; they are all financed through the government or are completely beholden as a branch of government. This has been the ugly truth about the climate change debate. Firstly, nobody is claiming that climate does not change as that would be preposterous. What is debated is whether it is predominantly anthropomorphic or whether nature has the far greater effect. Guess which one received the mountain of funding from the United States, United Nations, European Union, and had entire companies whose existence and budget only comes from government and they still manage to go bankrupt, see yesterday’s just above the picture in the article, there is only one. We could argue that right here and never get through the speech so one argument and we’ll move on. Take all the pollution caused by humankind and add to that all the pollution caused by the herds of animals and pets of humankind and add all the pollution caused by factories and power plants, even the coal plant a week Chinese ones with no scrubbers or filters belching pollutants needlessly because they are immune to criticism or pollution control requirements and balance that against the 550 active volcanoes of which an average year has 60 eruptions of which 2/3 are active and constantly erupting such as Stromboli, Kilauea, or Sakurajima. Guess which side of the equation produces more greenhouse gasses and pollutants into the atmosphere, hint, mankind has only once in modern history beaten an erupting volcano on the fly using water pumps, granted, very large water pumps and every last one from Greenland to Britain and beyond was a harbor village in Iceland who slowed and then redirected the lava flow, tens of thousands of cubic yards of lava flow away from directly striking their town losing less than 10% of the buildings. And volcanoes are not the largest producers of greenhouse gasses for which we are very thankful. Anyone know the molecule which generates the greatest amount of greenhouse effect in the atmosphere, and would you like to ban it? We hope not as it is dihydrogen-oxide and the oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, ponds and other bodies of this chemical whose denotation is H2O, yep, water is the greatest producing molecule in the atmosphere that remains a secret because if people ever realized that the oceans beat volcanoes by a factor of hundreds or more and volcanoes beat humanity with all its effects by a factor of thousands then the whole climate change is America’s and the developed world’s fault would be forever buried, but they want to use climate change to change the way you live and then limit your travel demanding you get a license to travel after you pay for a thousand trees to be planted and other garbage coming in the future the way things are heading. So, onward and let’s see the next subject.

 

President made a statement that the United States has cut foreign imports of oil by 60% which he made to sound to be due to renewable energy production and ignored the influence that tripling oil production, largely due to fracking, and the Dakota’s oil boom. An intentional aside, he threw out “gas under two bucks (nice common language rather than the formal dollars) a gallon ain’t (see last comment) bad either” a great little tool politicians use to make a comment, usually to their favor, appear as they just thought of it and threw it out off the cuff, trust one who dabbled in politics, it was on the teleprompter including a signal word to denote its delivery. Enough trees great, cars bad. The “world we preserve,” oh gag me with a spoon.

 

We are now going on to discuss how to keep America safe without isolationism or triumphalism as we cannot be the world’s police. And I have to ask, why not, it had been working somewhat before you broke the entire machine because you were raised in a bubble. The United States spends more on their military than the next eight nations combined. Possibly valid but that is comparing apples to oranges. The United States also spends more on water pipes, telephone equipment, power lines, than those same eight nations, but so what. Let’s talk percentage of GDP to military spending and my bet is that then Israel spends more than the United States. As long as we are making comparisons, my bet is the United States, for the time being as China is about to get into these areas placing their own systems in orbit, but the United States spends more on weather satellites, GPS satellites, satellites to monitor weather on the sun, space telescopes, probes working on or around other planets, and way more on satellites still broadcasting data to Earth from beyond the heliosphere and currently traversing the heliosheath while approaching the so called the heliopause.

He feels the need to remake NATO. First is protecting Americans, as it should be, because terrorist network, yes, he actually said terrorists, somebody probably told him the value of not hedging when talking about violent extremists, and he named al-Qaeda and ISL which is close to the point, because even a handful of terrorists who care little for human life, including their own, can do a lot of damage. No argument here except I would bet he will refer to the small number part in some future argument where he will claim that it is just a small, insignificant number of violent extremists. Well, well, so we sure do not need to push away vital allies in this fight, please tell me this is not where Turkey, or worse, Iran are coming into view, please. The coalition he formed is taking care of Syria which would work better if Congress would authorize use of force in Syria. Further, Iran has been prevented from gaining nuclear weapons and stamped out Ebola in Africa and established trade in Asia if only Congress would act. He claims that we can rid the world of Malaria which could have been accomplished with the judicial and targeted use of DDT back fifty years ago, but because of overuse of DDT by permitting wide swath spraying of even some urban areas to cut down on insects resulted in undernourished birds having overly thin shelled and thus unhealthy eggs. If we had limited the use to only areas where there were stagnant waters, then the judicial use instead of carpet bombing every suburb in America would not have so denuded the areas of insects that it so adversely affected the birds. I can remember the trucks coming every three weeks and spraying unbelievable amounts of what they referred to as bug spray, but our parents knew it was DDT, the chemical which allowed the building of the Panama Canal along with penicillin; but once we were done in the tropics, why continue to allow an inexpensive and easily produced pesticide to continue use worldwide just to rid the world of malaria. But now we must finish the job of eradicating malaria. Why did we refuse to finish the fight a half century ago and saved how many millions of lives? Lives matter even in the poorest of nations where malaria had been a scourge across Africa, South and Central America as well as Asia but not on temperate Europe and America, so ban DDT and watch these continents suffer needlessly. Can you tell this one has stuck in my craw for quite some time?

 

Our glorious future can only happen if we work together and have rational and constructive debates, fix our politics, and now, trust between the citizenry. I fear where he is about to tread. It doesn’t work if we think our opponents are motivated by malice, are unpatriotic, trying to weaken America. Democracy doesn’t work when we fail to compromise, when basic facts are contested, listen only to those who agree with us (then what am I doing here?), public life withers when only the most extreme voices get all the attention, and breaks down when the average person doesn’t think their voice matters, that the system is rigged in favor of the rich, the powerful or some special interest. And we learn that President Obama has regrets and this is one of those few he has about his Presidency, wish I could say the same. He has noticed that the division and relations between the parties had gotten worse instead of better. Talking to the American people he instructs us that it is not enough to change a Congressman or a Senator or even a President to make politics better, we need to change the system. We need to stop drawing congressional districts so that politicians can pick their voters and not the other way around, let a bipartisan committee (we think as it was applause overshadowed), reduce the influence of money in our politics so a handful of individuals or (unintelligible) our elections, stutter stutter stutter if campaign finance reform cannot pass muster in the courts, then we have to find another solution, (damn the Constitution and full steam ahead). He can’t do these things on his own, the last time he complained about that he did do it on his own. Look out America, Obama has seen your future and you are going to become a tribal society fighting and killing instead of voting because he has seen it. Um, ah, no, and here we go into the philosophical rhapsody in his view of what is right, imagine an America where there are no differences, no races, no ethnicity and no religion too. Imagined an America where rah rah rah and the son who comes out for who he is and the father who loves him, the woman who waits forever to vote, the new immigrant who votes for the first time and the State of our Union is strong, um, okie dokie.

 

Summary:
It was shorter than his usual but could have been even shorter. I want a President who simply does what the constitution requires, send a report to Congress, written so that they can review where their President who they will need to work along-side and determine where the nation is going in his opinion and they should reply either directly or through whatever channels they need to abide and oblige. Then for the State of the Union Address, as the press will have already posted the report to Congress for any citizen to read, can simply give an emotional and concise speech delineating what he desires and addresses any urgent events or state of the world which he believes the people need to know the President’s views and where he can sway people. That way the report can be lengthy with figures and breakdowns of every little thing and be completely factual or his opinion and go into greater depth than the presentation. As it stands now, the President will actually make two, if he is wise, State of the Union reports, the copy of this speech and the actual SOTU report as a document of greater length and detail than he would ever wish to deliver to the nation. As this system is currently, that second report, if such does exist, will remain unseen by the people and even if the media were to get a copy, the odds are it would never see print or online unless bloggers or other new media types were to have access. The President will never be giving another SOTU address and for that both he and we are likely grateful.
What is actually far more interesting are the rumors floating around which inform us that President Obama will be touring far more than the fifty-seven states he once claimed were the United States, as now he is campaigning for an entirely new position which will present an interesting problem. He wants to be the next Secretary General of the United Nations. He really thinks he should run the world. This has been the funniest rumor I have run across in years and what makes it even better is it would be even funnier if it is for real. Honest, I think President Obama would make a much better Secretary General of the United Nations than he was President of the United States. If President Obama really thinks that Secretary General is a higher post than President of the United States, he will need to have a serious session with people who know better. The Secretary General of United Nations makes pointless speeches, usually unfortunately ever so much longer than necessary, that’s one qualification he has. He needs to enjoy being powerless, not an Obama strong suit. He would have no military and would need to rely completely on his speech delivery to make his point and win the day. They will make sure his translator to the hard of hearing is an actual translator and not some wanna-be comedian. He will get to visit one-hundred-ninety-three nations and the nonfunctional Palestinian Authority. He would still be dead within fifteen minutes of a Gaza visit. He would still be persona-non-grata in Egypt. Turkey’s Erdogan would remain his best friend. He would have the privilege of dealing with Prime Minister Netanyahu even more often and with less influence or power. He could spend great amounts of time in Europe where the politics are presumably more to his liking. He could have two five year terms which is greater job security than his last job where he will be summarily fired after eight too long years of pain and anguish because the Congress would not play fair and just do as they were told, well, except for parts of those first two dreamy years. As Secretary General nobody anywhere will do as they are told, oh the additional anguishes. As Secretary General may he will have miseries like that of a thousand nights shared in a Bedouin tent with a camel. As Secretary General he can make his best speeches even though no one will listen, not even the chair (thank you Neil Diamond).

 

That is a good one to leave in and go listen to Neil Diamond’s Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show.

International Hypocrisy

 

Paris, France was the scene of a horrific terrorist assaults which targeted people at various locations and disparate functions murdering at least one-hundred-thirty people and wounded over three-hundred more some of which still in questionable serious condition. Almost immediately world leaders met in the French Capital for a climate change convention. Many national leaders, President Obama amongst them, when queried as to what is the greatest challenge facing the world was answered that it was climate change which may cause coastal area flooding as well as stronger, more severe and increased number of such storms. President Obama was amongst those who refused to mention the horrific assault on Parisians by Islamic State terror operatives. Such a response simply boggles one’s mind that the attacks did not even warrant a mention as if the planet was on the brink of disaster from Global Climate Change.

 

Here is what we do know. First is that climate does indeed change naturally as we had snowball earth as well as a number of ice ages and a year without a summer after the eruption of a volcano in Indonesia. We know that the resultant changes in the climate are based on models and these models are considered accurate in their prediction of the weather at the end of the century despite models made by the same brilliant minds cannot tell me if it will be raining next Sunday or will it be conducive for a large family picnic. We know that government monies are only available for researchers’ efforts who believe that global climate change is a real and immediate problem. Further, if one can also place the blame for these changes on mankind and prove it is Anthropomorphic Climate Change without using those models which have been proven to start with the desired result and then working their way back to where we are now to grow their formula, then some might take their arguments seriously instead of relegating them to the junk science producing the predictable result demanded by the government paying for that desired result. Despite this effort to push Anthropomorphic Climate Change there are a fair number of scientists who claim that they cannot predict with complete certainty the actual effects of climate change but can most assuredly claim and prove that it is not caused by mankind and that the amount of so-called human influence is negligible and that the entirety of climate change scare is just that, a scare tactic to have the people give over to government control over much of our lives. They see Anthropomorphic Climate Change as simply a route to new laws and restriction on personal freedom of our lives such as how far from our work we are permitted to reside, carbon taxes, carbon credits which are given the less advanced nations to use when getting more wealthy nations to provide them with monies for these credits which can then in turn give the poorer nations to develop clean energy systems. In all honesty, Anthropomorphic Climate Change is a redistribution scheme dressed up in a pretty package developed by climate change proponents and those naysayers are just against poorer nations and want them to only produce carbon based fuels. When this is their argument the redistribution of wealth becomes absolutely evidenced leaving no room for other arguments.

 

 

Paris Terror Stadium Attack CNN Breaking Live Coverage

Paris Terror Stadium Attack CNN Breaking Live Coverage

 

 

Meanwhile there was a shocking assault upon the people of Paris, France by the Islamic State (previously known as IS, ISIL, ISIS) and we are informed that there will be further such operations as the opportunities present themselves. Further, Israel is once again experiencing a wave of knife attacks, vehicular homicides, shootings and fire-bombings. There were at least two attacks in the past twenty-four hours, and this probably holds true for whenever you are reading this article as it was when it was written. There has been another curious series of events concerning the coverage these assaults have received. There are a number of separate results of these assaults, the person assaulted dies, multiple people are attacked with differing injuries from light and treated at scene to those pronounced dead at the scene and all various categories admitted to hospitals. Then there are three other broader categories. Attacker succeeds in their attack and escapes. The attacker is caught likely with non-life threatening injuries. Interestingly enough these two varieties of attacks meet with almost no coverage in media coverage outside Israel. Then there is the final type which is where the attack is carried out and the terrorist is killed or severely injured and fears are the terrorist might not survive. There was this news story titled “Two Palestinians killed during new stabbing attacks”. Then there was the original CNN headline, “Palestinians shot boarding kids’ bus” since changed to “Armed Palestinians shot after trying to board bus with children on board.” Such misleading coverage is not accidental but rather slanted against Israel and is not limited to CNN or the New York Times.

 

We were given a glimpse of the world for those select few who are members of the White House Press Club when Helen Thomas was interviewed by a Rabbi, she was told he wanted to record the top stories about the Presidential media to get a feel for the moods and views for his writings when asked about the Middle East when she responded curtly that the Jews should, “get the hell out of Palestine and return and go home to Germany, Poland or the United States.” Many claimed this was the ugliest side of Helen Thomas they had ever seen. Those comments cost her the position she had on the White House Press Corps, awards both that she had been expected to receive or had been named after her all had to be reassessed, renamed, or find a new presenter. Now it is starting to appear that major newspaper editorial boards and network news programs have started to support the blame Israel as the problem and if only there were no Jewish State then there would be no senseless violence and peace would cover the area like a blanket of warm fuzzes. Anybody honestly believing that the troubles in Syria and surrounding nations in the MENA area exist due to Israel, they need to have a reality check and if they still do not see a problem of blaming everything on Israel they should be granted government paid for mental assistance. Any glimpse into the Middle East which includes North Africa (thus MENA) finds unlimited and open warfare in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria, Kenya, Turkey with the Kurds, and others with terrorism a threat everywhere.

Blaming Israel for the major breakouts, which are plainly other national struggles often the result of the Shiite/Sunni divide which pits Iran and Syria against the majority of the rest the Muslim nations, is plainly as ludicrous as it is bald-faced lies. The disingenuous accusations targeting Israel largely pushed by Secretary of State Kerry when claiming that the Hebdo and Hyper Cachet kosher market were understandable and these latest murders are not is a frightening revelation. With such lost credibility Secretary Kerry should be removed from the efforts to pound a solution out of Israel while allowing the Palestinians claim any evil they wish on Israel and allow them to remain as the final word is sheer hypocrisy. Secretary Kerry was not the sole person to differentiate between the broad strike and January’s more targeted strike. Interviews of Parisians in the aftermath of the November 13, 2015, terror attacks noted the stark difference that this time those killed by Islamist terrorists weren’t just Jews or provocative cartoonists. Quite a number of those interviewed when asked about the Charlie Hebdo or Hyper Casher attack compared to the Friday November 13, 2015 attacks were insistent that after the Charlie Hebdo or Hyper Casher they did not feel a sense of threat or danger to themselves. Many expressed it as, ‘Those were simply attacks on cartoonists who went too far and insulted Mohammad and the Hyper Cacher is a kosher market so it could be expected for those people to be struck by terrorists, but there was no reason before the 13th of November to feel that terrorism would strike any closer to home as we were not crazed cartoonists nor were we Jews.’ Hypocrisy such as this should signal to the Jews of Paris if not France and France if not Western Europe and Eastern Europe if not all of Europe or perhaps the world over this may be the clarion call telling you that there is nowhere on this earth where people will not blame you for any terror strike on your neighborhoods and excuse such attacks as they did not involve normal people, only Jews. The average people the world over are once again drawing a line between what happens to them and those same things happening to the Jews. They write off those assaults and other degradations and dangers which happen to Jews are acceptable because the Jews somehow deserve all that befalls them while attacks upon them are completely unjustifiable. The old adage of society good, Jew evil, society innocent and thus clean of sin, Jews somehow guilty and full of sins which is why they deserve scorn and death and as long as you attack Jews there will be deserved.

 

 

A four picture montage of John Scary Kerry at his long-faced best. Hopefully once he is done failing and flailing at being Secretary of State we will be done with John Kerry. His ineptitude and at times traitorous actions have shamed the United States ever since his treacherous testimony before the Senate accusing his supposed, though never in Kerry’s mind or heart, fellow soldiers equating them with the ruthlessness of Genghis Khan and his opinions have little changed with the years.

Your safety will not be protected by these societies and when they face the choice between sacrificing you and your family against their hides and their families, guess which is easily fed to the monsters. We have played this game before with these kinds of Europeans before and it did not turn out all that well. Over time we have covered the idea that Israel is the Jewish People’s last and best refuge including but not exclusively in these articles in chronological order published April 15, 2011 titled “If Not Israel Where do the Jews Belong?”, published April 2, 2012 titled “Israel is the Jews Last and Final Chance”, published January 4, 2014 titled “Importance of Israel to Jews Today” and published April 21, 2014, titled ”Safest Place for Jews is in Israel?”. The safe refuge that is Israel will soon be the only place of actual safety for the Jewish People. There will be those Jews who feel that such would be too much of an inconvenience but once they have visited Israel they will find their place in this magical land of miracles. My coming to Israel was decided when I was nine and made myself two promises, to care for my parents until they no longer needed assistance or was released from that promise and then make Aliyah. These remained dormant in the back of my mind until the death of my little sister and then the final decision came when I was released from the former predicating task and my move to Israel was the only thing I could think of accomplishing, and here I am, in Israel. Hashem in Torah spoke of the three exiles, the first was Egypt, the second Babylonian and the final one the Jewish People were to be cast throughout the lands of Earth such that they were in every culture and from there Hashem promised to drag them all home to Israel. This miracle was to occur as either the Jewish People became very much religious and Zionist or they were to be assimilated such that they would be indistinguishable from their neighbors as in much the United States. The crazy thing is Jewish sages always claimed that it would be one or the other but there are more Jews following the religious demands than ever in history and there is a large number of Jews assimilated and seemingly completely immersed in the culture of the nation where they reside. But anti-Israel then included with it anti-Zionism and we are witnessing the onslaught of the final and unavoidable end, the anti-Semitism, full-fledged and overt anti-Semitism reaching slowly but inexorably across Europe and beginning to take root in the United States. This is the start of the return, the reinvigoration of the dry bones.
