Election of the Millennium

 

The coming election in the United States may be as breaking important to the survival of the Judeo-Christian ethos and society as any since the British elected Winston Churchill to face the Nazi menace. The problem is the choices with which the American people have provided themselves. The Democrat Party has caved to the pressure from the Clintons and the idea that they needed to place another first onto the ballot, the first woman to be President, or at least to be the choice to top the ballot of a major party. The Republican Party did not do anything really different when they nominated a person who in appearance was closer to class clown than class president. The real problem is that in politics, as in life, you have to play the cards you are dealt.

 

So we have a political hack who has never accomplished much of anything noteworthy but has still managed to have collected legal baggage unseen in any candidate running for their first term and not reelection, though we doubt there have even been many seeking reelection with such a set of baggage with the possible exception of Richard Nixon. The fact that it would be Richard Nixon who when seeking reelection may have had almost as much legal difficulties with Watergate bring us full circle as Hillary Clinton, then still Hillary Rodham, in her first “big” job after graduating was to be a researcher on the House Impeachment committee looking into charging President Nixon with impeachment. You cannot make this stuff up and making matters worse, there are some who claim, though verification of this presumed fact has been unsuccessful by us and others, that Hillary Rodham (Clinton) was removed from her position under suspicions that she was attempting and had consulted with members of Senator Ted Kennedy’s chief political strategist in violation of House rules. The originating source, as far as we have determined was the Jerry Zeifman book published in 2006, “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power.” In the book our research turned up references to Hillary having “engaged in a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules.” Zeifman wrote on his now-shuttered website, “Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president” and further stated that, “if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.” Then again, these charges and innuendo may simply have been Zeifman’s contribution of more grist for the mill.

On the opposing side we have what some have referred to as a huckster, showman, real estate magnate, television reality show producer and even a fraud. At first look one would be led to believe that the two parties are in a race to the bottom, and that may very well be true. The one thing that the media has been very guilty of thus far in covering Donald Trump is their sensationalism over news content. True, Donald Trump was all bombast and insult to the intelligence during the primaries. The media could have derailed Trump early on simply by noting that he had run for the nomination for President on the Reform Party ticket in 2000 and considered to run for President as a Republican way back in 1988 as well as in 2004, and 2012. George H. W. Bush had also considered Donald Trump as his running mate amongst others before selecting Dan Quayle. These former forays into politics have largely been brushed aside as Trump’s not being a serious candidate and only running for further name recognition and the free publicity thus furthering the Trump “brand” making his television reality show more popular and other promotional contents. Had his campaign been treated as such this time, he likely would have seen his campaign collapse as it had in the past and he would have gone on his merry way. The media for reasons of their own chose instead to promote Trump’s campaign as serious despite his running basically on the same bombast as his previous excursions into the field of Presidential politics. Now Donald Trump, some have posited, is in the position of the dog who chased the car and having now caught it by the back tire trying to decide what to do before being pummeled. The problem now is that he may possibly not be pummeled but could conceivably win the Presidency. That is making the theory that the media pressed his campaign in order to have the Republican Party run an incompetent nincompoop allowing for Hillary Clinton to complete her dream run achieving her destiny, as seen by the leftist mainstream media, the Soros foundation, leftist loonies, the BDS anti-Israel fanatics and a coalition of other far left causes, of becoming the first woman President of the United States as their idea of fate should have things. Something went terribly wrong and Donald Trump may not only have caught the car but the entire car carrier on its way to the White House.

 

So we have the potentially first woman President running against somebody inflated by circumstance and a pliable media attempting to nominate an idiot, fool, class clown and totally unelectable candidate for the Republican Party such that that candidate could be a simple and easy punching bag which Hillary could knock the stuffing out of on her way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. Now the only way Hillary might be able to see the inside of the White House could be as a tourist or possibly by invite from a gracious Donald Trump giving her a personally guided tour of his remake of America’s House. Well, that would get pictures even on the front pages of the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles Post, Philadelphia Inquirer and be the lead story on FOX News and Glen Beck’s cable network. What more could Donald Trump desire as the coverage of his first month in office climax press release/conference, and yes, he would definitely invite the entire Washington, New York and Los Angeles press corps. Should Donald Trump win the election and become President it will prove to be one of the biggest coups ever pulled on the mainstream media as they were played like Nero’s fiddle as the conventional rules for campaigning were thrown out the window. Donald Trump saw what they desired, a patsy to fill the other side of the ballot assuring a Hillary Clinton victory and he played the part perfectly. He rode the wave of being the most aggrandized idiot and a fool but if he wins the race it will posit the question of exactly who is the fool in this real life drama.

 

Choosing Between Crook and Clown, With Which One are You Down

Choosing Between Crook and Clown,
With Which One are You Down

 

The media is playing another role in this campaign, one of advocate for one side or the other. The talk circuit is probably the most balanced as just as many hate Donald Trump equally if not more than Hillary Clinton and others fall slightly on the other side. Print media and the mainstream television media are completely lined up behind Hillary Clinton to the bitter end. There is one problem which the media need answer for, they chose Donald Trump to be Hillary’s chew toy and it appears Hillary may not have enough bite to destroy her gifted chew toy. With the e-mail scandal, private server problems, inadequacies as Secretary of State, complete lack of positive credentials and most of all, Benghazi; the media have their work cut out for them as they attempt to cover these stories which just continue to plague them and still try to make their candidate look better than Donald Trump. The big question is can the media out-show the showman himself? Thus far they are getting a failing grade. The media will continue to refuse to pass any questions to Hillary Clinton about the myriad of problems and potential criminal charges seeming to chase her wherever she goes as they value their jobs and their lives. Instead there will be the obligatory questions as to how she managed to be the star Secretary of State while raising a perfect child and still finding time to bake cookies. This after she disavowed baking cookies claiming such would be a waste of her valuable time. Of course this was during her stint as the main lead in drafting new healthcare legislation during her husband’s first term, a piece of legislation so ponderous and unthinkable that even the Democrats turned it down flat out. This should be another qualifying study in what a President Hillary would entail. But this too has been forgotten as the only thing anyone seems to remember is how accomplished Hillary Clinton has been in her illustrious career. Why was that again? Oh yea, she is married to Willian Jefferson “Bill” Clinton who gave us four marvelous, prosperous and entertaining, always entertaining, years as President and this makes Hillary qualified, exactly. This will be her campaign story, how qualified she is by comparison. We wish the media luck selling this product.

 

On the other side of the campaign stretch the media has an equally difficult row to hoe as they must sell that Trump is unelectable due to his incompetence without drawing any attention to whether Hillary is any more competent. Thus far the media is doing an excellent job in making sure nobody inspects anything Donald Trump is actually saying at his speaking and campaign stops. The media is still pounding away at his irreverent actions during the primaries before he realized that he might actually win. Since the point Donald Trump realized he was very likely going to not only gather sufficient delegates to win on the first ballot, but that there would be no changing the rules of the game in order to place anybody else on the ballot, he had changed the entirety of his election team twice. Simply put, the Republican Party went with the potentially disastrously defective candidate the people voted for in the Primaries against the hand-picked candidate the Democrat Party placed on their ballot the voters be damned as it is her turn, promised turn. These changes in his team proved one simple fact, Donald Trump has taken this election seriously and was going to continue to change team members until he found a team to stay on his message and run a credible campaign.

 

Donald Trump has been putting forth campaign points which he intends to work towards and had been on message and serious for going on a little over a month. The media won’t report this because Donald Trump is supposed to be the foil for placing Hillary Clinton in the Presidency. Instead of covering the Donald Trump who exists currently and who is talking seriously about issues he and many American care about, the future of the United States, immigrations, both overhauling the current system so legal immigrants can actually come to the United States if they have qualities and skills needed by the United States and not just anyone who can walk over the border and register as a Democrat or work under the table for less. Donald Trump is talking about jobs, real jobs for working class people and bringing back industries from overseas. Trump has proposed a flat tax on business of fifteen percent with minimal if any deductions making America business friendly again. He has gone from bombast and claiming to fire every General in military service to discussing with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Pentagon commanders how to best engage and destroy the Islamic State. He also claims to demand a plan to rebuild the militaries which have been gutted over the past eight years. Tax reform has been one of Trump’s lesser mentioned subjects, but it is on his radar. The media may not cover this but every Trump rally and speech is viewable on YouTube as well as his campaign site for those voters who actually desire to see what the media refuses to cover.

 

This will be the Presidential election cycle which will go down in history as the campaign the media refused to cover even resembling honestly. There will be critiques of the lack of coverage of any detracting facts or lack of principles by Hillary Clinton while the exact opposite where even if Trump were to get a boil behind his left ear the media would run a week or two coverage inquiring if this was a mark of the beast and pressing the possibility that Donald Trump practices demonic covens to decide his positions on the issues. Well, they have become almost that much of a joke. The blessing is that the people no longer need the media to inform them as they can go find the information straight from the sources with the alternative media. Yes, we know that both candidates have their negatives, all we can add is that they both have positives which would be hard pressed to know from watching MSNBC for one and FOX for the other.

 

Our message is look before you leap and definitely before you vote as the choice the United States makes this fall for Congress as well as President will have profound meaning for the entirety of the free world going forward. The one item we would suggest you find the answer to is what is the term for surrender, because surrender might just be behind one of the doors in the race for President of the Free World. That position has been vacant for the past eight years and the Free World needs it filled and nobody in Europe appears desiring stepping up. In Israel they are holding their own against a rising tide and their fight is transforming from their sole lonely fight to one that much of the world has coming to knock on or knock down their doors. The future is very scary and that truth should guide everybody to take check of themselves, their life styles and their life choices as those are what got us to this point. Any culture which stops raising children is a dead culture and that is the plague that will very probably have murdered the Europe we all thought we knew. Behind the front of glitz and lights with the night life has been a hollow void of childless marriages and relationships with declining and aging populations with nobody home to take the baton forward as the next generation. Another two or three relatively childless generations, another fifty years and there will be no Europe, no Russia and a very different America and Canada. That too is something that needs to be inspected and choices investigated and their ramifications altered or simply admit that the Western World, freedom and Democracy, the Magna Carta, the American Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution and its Bill of Rights, the Bible and Western philosophy will die for the lack of any following and that will be the end of a long legacy.

 

This legacy started with Abraham followed by the Ten Commandments with Moses and the rules limiting the powers of Kings in Deuteronomy and an entire codified set of rules for society; soon adding to by the Greek and Roman Democracy and Republic which almost died but were defended at Thermopylae; the English Common Law, spelled rights in the Magna Carta once again limiting the King, the Reformation, Renaissance, Industrial Revolution and Information Age; and the freedoms to choose ones’ own future and passing that on to children to preserve which are all wobbling at the edge of extinction. Ronald Reagan stated it best when he said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Ronald Reagan almost nailed it because it will not be only the United States but all of mankind and that is why everything is so seriously wrong and in need of greatness and we get to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump? Are you kidding me?

Snapshot of Leftist Europe and Israel

 

The British Labour Party has been experiencing a rare and revealing problem, some of their members have broken the golden rule and have been speaking honestly expressing thoughts which most prefer not be made public. In an effort to subjugate their remaining members who might be tempted to join the chorus singing the songs revealing their honest beliefs and allowing their beliefs normally kept tight to the chest and under wraps displayed out on their public clothesline for all to bear witness. The leader of the unbelievable revolt and leader in making this spectacle has been the duo of former London mayor and Labour activist Ken Livingstone and Labour MP Naz Shah who were suspended for anti-Semitic comments. Their crime was honesty as they were simply stating what so many leftists the worldwide believe when it comes to the Jewish People, Israeli Jews and Jews in general. One of their tropes calls for all Israeli Jews be forced to relocate into the United States and leave the entirety of the Middle East including the Israelite homeland for the Arab Palestinian Muslim invaders who poured out of the Arabian Peninsula dislocating, destroying or slaughtering every Jewish community they met forcing the remaining Jews from their ancestral home, the lands the Europeans wish to reward the conquerors with and punish the indigenous peoples who are returning to their homeland making it productive for the first time in centuries.

 

One easily identifies their racism which runs ramped in their desires as they are not demanding the Jews be permitted to return to their former homelands as that would include numerous Arab nations who had forced their Jewish citizens to flee often with merely one suitcase and the clothes on their backs. Often the suitcases were inspected and any items of worth, anything from treasure to even slightly valuable, such as but not limited to Torah Scrolls, Tefillin, jewelry, artworks, heirlooms, objects of silver, anything with gold, platinum items as well as coins or other monies were removed and stolen by the inspectors. They also are apparently refusing to permit the Jews from Europe to return to their homes from which they were driven or from returning to their former homes or anywhere else in Europe. Their demand is for all Jews to be relocated into the United States starting with the Israeli Jews. Does any of this sound familiar? Europeans demanding that the Jews be relocated away from their homes starting with those from the Middle East, especially from Jerusalem and the remainder of the Jewish State. At least they are not starting with the Jews residing in Europe, though we would bet they would be next shipped off to the United States. After the World War II experience with the S.S. St. Louis, what makes them believe the United States would accept the world’s Jews saving them from a fate of suffering and death? We would bet there are sufficient in the United States who would be extremely averse to such a plan and would do whatever it takes to resist such from occurring likely allying with the State Department working to drown such an idea from fruition through endless paperwork.

 

What is truly frightening is that the idea, the concept, the plotting, the whatever you desire to call it, the shipping Israeli Jews wholesale off to the United States to be settled where and under what conditions with what future intents is actually one of the least prejudicially insulting thoughts emerging from Britain and around the entirety of the European Union (EU) and fellow governments. Salim Mulla, who currently serves as a Labour councilor for the city of Blackburn, made a number of anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic comments in the summer of 2015 including amongst them, “Zionist Jews are a disgrace to humanity.” What is an even more frightening reality is that there are a number of predominantly leftist Jews in Europe, the United States and around the world even to include Israel who would agree with that statement. But hating Jews whether Zionist or new wave progressives who could not tell you what the inside of a Synagogue looks like not having seen one since they were thirteen, are not anything new in the world and definitely not new to Europe. What is truly frightening is the depth and expanse of such hatred within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) where anti-Semitic beliefs run rampant and are off-scale compared to the rest of the planet. For an in-depth global study’s result, one can peruse the conclusions of the ADL Global 100, An Index of Anti-Semitism. The results in the different categories and especially regarding the Shoah, the Holocaust, are absolutely frightening and prove that its remembrance will have fallen through the cracks and exited our common memories within another two or at most three generations. If one does not remember or know from whence they came, they cannot have any idea where they are heading as they have no reference points or knowledge to compare now with then.

 

That aside, the rapid rise of anti-Semitism and particularly anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism in Europe and lagging but rising in the United States and the remainder of the Anglosphere is purely frightening. It is these statistics and general mistrust by those in positions of power, especially those in appointed positions such as ministers and others in the EU, that reveals the extent of the problem. Though absolutely appalling after the atrocities committed in the names of the European people during World War II, the return and rampant rise of anti-Semitism is simply beyond reason. That the Foreign Minister of Sweden not only made directly false anti-Semitic tropes assigning their worst attributes to the Prime Minister of Israel, his Cabinet, the Ministers of the Knesset, “Settlers” and Israelis generally; then along came the former mayor of Malmo, Sweden with comments when in power advising the Jews of Malmo, and community with tens of centuries of history in the town, that there was nothing which could be done to protect the Jews and if they felt unsafe they should move to somewhere far less threatening in their opinions and then dismissed the issue. Then there are the near riots and even riots by the new immigrants against allowing the Jews any representation in government, positions of power or respect, teaching, professorship in the universities and other positions much as the Nazis denied such to Jews. It is also how the Arab governments limit the Arab Palestinians under their stewardship in the numerous refugee camps where Arabs have languished for decades not permitted to hold jobs much more respectful than street sweeper and who are forbidden a normal education, instead having their children taught anti-Semitic hatreds and poisoning their minds leading to the terrorism coming from these camps. These camps even exist in Nablus, Gaza City and other areas under Arab Palestinian rule where their own rulers treat them as lepers who must only be released to infect Israeli society and are separate from the Arab Palestinian society surrounding their camps. Europe blames Israel for the sad treatment of these Arab refugees who are far beyond Israeli influence.

 

European politicians largely believe that Israel is an easy target on which to pin all of societal ills. Still, looking through the opinions of Jews and particularly Israelis, one finds the nations who are most favorable are those which have had an unforeseen or other horrific natural or manmade disaster and found the Israelis not only the first there with the most and a system in place where it is as if they are trained for just the events they address from typhoons, earthquakes, tornados, flooding, disease or any other natural or manmade disaster. In Haiti, Israel had the first functioning and fully operating hospital with X-Ray, MRI and every modern diagnostic department including neonatal long before any other such as the United States was a close second almost matching Israel’s hospital but over a week later. Israel also had dogs, robots and every conceivable search and rescue assistance on the ground within thirty-six hours. In the Philippines after their worst and most horrific storm in history, Israel was amongst the first on the scene; it was difficult beating the United States as they have bases already there. Nepal, Japan, Philippines and the other nations where Israel has come to aide, even setting up Israeli clinics in villages so remote they had previously never been visited by outside assistance even from their own government, have lower statistic of anti-Semitism then even the developed nations. Often in these instances one Israeli remains behind for a year training the people of the village and surrounding area first aid, use of diagnostic equipment, upkeep and calibration, and other areas of medicine leaving the clinic and equipment behind and restocking these clinics until the government of that nation can take over the operations. Israel had the most broad search and rescue teams as well as field hospital in Nepal, something nations with ten times as many of their citizens lost in the earthquake did not do. Israel remained ten days longer than scheduled as they refused to depart without finding their last citizen. These nations have the least anti-Semitism of the world as they have seen the truth that is Israel. Israel is one of the few nations to offer the United States their assistance after Katrina and Sandy and other natural disasters. Often Israeli assistance is refused as in Sandy and Katrina as well as 9/11, but Israeli expertise assisted after the Boston Marathon bombing. Israel has been accused by some of never stepping up and assisting the United States after a disaster and labeled as ingrates for such lack of actions. The truth is Israeli assistance after every disaster in the United States has not only been refused but banned from assisting even through Jewish agencies.

 

Still, Europe rates less anti-Semitic than anywhere outside of the United States and Israel. The most negative feelings towards Israel and Jews come from the Arab Palestinian areas where they are fed a continuous sixty hour a day stream of anti-Semitic lies and misrepresentations even including misrepresenting actual news stories, using proven libels such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and religious instruction which demands their hatred of Israel and the Jews. The area with the highest anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism was MENA followed by Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa with North America and the United States and Canada along with Czech Republic having the lowest such numbers. MENA led the world with number of people never having met a Jew in their lifetime, but that did not prevent their hatred for them. Next in the never having met a Jew was Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Europe rates very high on having met a Jew yet still held many negative feelings and beliefs about Jews. The study linked above is an eye-opening read and is in largely graph or simple percentages making comparisons and such very easy and the coverage is truly universal and extensive.

 

Despite many attributes one might think their civility would prevent Europeans from being heavily anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist or anti-Israeli. They managed to reach high levels in many areas which should be cause for concern and even panic and reassessment of their societal outlooks. One of the more amusing sets of numbers was the percentages which believed that the Jewish Population of the planet was above 2%, above 5%, 10% and even 20%. The truth is the Jews number below 0.2% of the world’s population. Europe still had a higher rate of hatreds and belief in stereotypes and blood libels even compared to areas of the world with almost no Jewish population. The frightening numbers in Europe and beyond were the percentages of those who had never met a Jew to having highly anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli rating as well as believing some of the most horrific and terrible blood libels about Jews such as the Holocaust was made up by the Jews as well as believing that the Jews controlled media, retail, politics, the United States, and other businesses which even the most casual observer could see was false. Despite the seeming propensity of Europeans, and an even higher percentage of European politicians, dislike to hatred for the Jewish People and everything that is seen as Jewish such as Israel, Zionism, and presumably the Governments, Israeli leaders still seek European approval. If Jews were even marginally as influential and controlled so many nations, political parties and think tanks and other political entities; we would not be so despised. We really would rule the world and control everybody’s life from birth to death just as far too many Europeans believe.

 

With such spewing of hatred and poison from the European halls of power and hierarchy against Israel, Zionism and Jews in general, one would think that the Israeli government would be done with Europe and anywhere else that holds such negative tropes as truisms. Instead the Israeli leadership spends far too much energy and effort attempting to favor friendship with these European leaders who would just as soon demolish Israel and eradicate what they see as a scourge on the planet which is the Jews. The manner in which Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ya’alon have acted echoing almost word for word the New York Times (American newspaper that thinks it is European), the French, British and other parliaments, far too many Foreign Ministers and virtually every other anti-Semite sitting in a position of power in Europe; one would think they are running for election in Europe. They feign glory to the point that it becomes an obsession serving the European Parliaments and their respective ministers. Though some Israeli politicians have seen fit to denounce Salim Mulla, Jeremy Corbyn, Ken Livingstone, conspiracy theorist Michael Harris, Ilyas Aziz and a few others, the majority appear to believe that if the Europeans or Americans disapprove of an action that Israel should be forbidden doing such. Had such an attitude existed in 1947-8, there would likely be no Israel as either Israel would have declared itself a state or forever remained in limbo as the Europeans and United States State Department believe now as they did then. This seeming insistence that every move taken by the government of Israel must first have the approval of the United States and Europe and that if too many amongst these anti-Israel haters disapprove then obviously Israel should reassess their standards and the manner in which things are observed bringing them in-line with the Europeans and Americans. That is no way to effectively run a country, especially one as alienated as Israel.

 

The Israeli politicians apparently get into a society where emulating the Europeans and certain Americans (you know, the politically correct Americans and not those Tea Party, Sarah Palin supporting, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz supporting, Michael Savage listening, Glen Beck following Neanderthal throw-back, retro-genetic, devolved morons) becomes required. Things in Israel must be conditioned and approved to be socially acceptable at the finest of European art houses and cafés no matter the effect or results and destructions such policies might have on Israeli society and the survival of the Jewish People. This dependence on European and leftist approval had become most evident in the treatment of the soldier Elor Azariya in the shooting death of a Palestinian terrorist who had just been neutralized from attempting to stab IDF soldiers at a checkpoint but had yet to be inspected for explosives or even other weapons. The soldier stated he believed that the terrorist was reaching for a detonator, a story upheld by virtually all others including MDA medics who were at the scene and some unable to even approach the terrorist as he was not completely rendered safe and explosives free among other security checks. The soldiers who had not done so were busy tending an injured soldier with multiple stabbing wounds. There had been a second terrorist who had received fatal wounds when soldier fired in self-defense. Before even the initial statements were gathered from those at the scene, the Prime Minister and Defense Minister were already declaring the soldier to be a horrible monster expressing rumors of things he might have said in the barracks where fish stories abound, just not about fishing. They and other Knesset Ministers along with the leftist media had tried and convicted the soldier before nightfall and were all but calling for his head on a pike outside the Damascus Gate of the Temple Mount. Their knee jerk reaction spouting exactly what would be the European reaction the next day was pathetic and showed a cowardice for backing a protector of the people, an IDF soldier. Is it any wonder why the Religious Zionists in the society feel they have no trusted friends except for a small core of fellow travelers amongst those in the halls of power. This is even more true when one considers the robes of justice would be too leftist even in some European nations and would be considered a travesty in many states of the United States. The fear to be nationalistic amongst Israeli elite is a disease which needs curing if Israel is to survive. The good news is that the majority and growing numbers of the people support the soldier and are realizing that Judaism and Zionism are the two anchors necessary if Israel is to survive. Now Israelis need to face the most impossible challenge they may ever face as a nation, finding those who believe as they believe and placing them in ever larger numbers into the Knesset and into taking position within the various government agencies, especially law enforcement and national security. The most difficult will be weeding out those holding high positions in the IDF and other enforcement agencies, most especially those dedicated to security and intelligence, as well as making greater inroads into the media and entertainment. We realize the last areas are not normally areas of expertise or even interest for those more dedicated to building the nation, its economy and religious institutions and following Torah; but if the foundations of culture are not swayed over to Torah and the land, then all else will be a struggle and forever an uphill battle. We cannot be like Sisyphus and push the bolder to the top of the hill every day only to have it roll back to the valley below every night. We must not even be like the great King Leonidas who led his three-hundred Spartans and five thousand supporting Greek soldiers who held the pass at Thermopylae for three days before falling to the Persian masses of troops.

 

This is a battle that the religious Zionists must win decisively and permanently which means that like we learn Torah and attempt to live Torah, we must also live for Israel and make her survival on all the land Hashem promised starting with the area between the river and the sea which we must make all under Israeli rule and yet continue the democratic governance. Perhaps the time is coming where a Constitution is crafted and a new bicameral parliament or legislature established while using such to preserve the Jewishness of the nation of Israel. We need to marry all the various tribal-like customs and blur the differentiations between Eastern European and Western European as well as MENA communities and the other various tribes we are discovering as they are beginning to make the trip home, the Ingathering. Making the rabbinate to have but a single Chief Rabbi would be a step in the right direction and our children have already taken giant stride towards unifying the differing factions through intermarriage, a beautiful and fitting step in the right direction. Finally, Israeli governance must be first, foremost and almost exclusively about Israel and the rest of the world be permitted their screaming as long as we acknowledge their defamations and are able to repeat them and still refuse to establish policies based on the demands placed upon Israel by a hostile outside world. We have Torah and need little else. Torah allows our choosing our governance as long as that governance serves the people and does nothing to lessen the influence and applications of Torah to our daily lives. The time is now to claim all of Judea and Samaria and begin to allow its peoples to become Israeli citizens or emigrate with our assistance if we feel such is required. We must take control of their education system and teach their students that which is necessary to live and be productive in a modern society. We need to bring services and establish economic inclusion as well as political, cultural and societal inclusion. By inclusion we will not mean Jewish but Israeli. Those who are Israeli must include having a respect for the Jewishness of the state of Israel. If any choose to violently refuse and combat against this Jewishness, they must be forced from amongst us. This includes those who instigate, plan bombings or disruptions, actively attempt to subjugate parts of the nation or any other treasonous acts. This is no different than any other nation which is a free democratic nation. Then our nations can become one and the world will recognize our singular right as the Jewish State. Servitude is no path to equality, respectful nationalism and the exercise of the right to make one’s own way as a nation that is the path to equality. What is beautiful about this path is that each nation can walk with pride in their differences while respecting others that right and then weaving the fabric which includes all the nations of the world. None can be a part of this fabric of nations if they bare swords against their neighbors as swords will tend to cut and then shred the fabric and thus undo all efforts of mutual beneficial actions. Those baring swords need be exorcised from the community of nations and disregarded in all acts between nations until they prove they prefer inclusion to supremacy. Israel needs to show a stronger self-confidence and belief in our rightness of actions and place out before us our beloved Torah in all actions and all that it includes, as it is a rarity amongst such laws as it allows for others to live as they choose providing they allow the Jews the same.

These rights are self-evident and must apply equally to all nations, end of story (and article).

Will Western Europe Survive this Population Gamble?

 

European nations, largely the Western European nations with Germany taking the lead are taking a gamble that the influx of refugees with a drastically different ethos and background will assimilate sufficiently well to offset their declining populations and not prove to be the next great revolution spelling an end to western civilization in Europe. A rapidly falling population percentage under twenty-five coupled with the longer life spans has settled into a demographic time-bomb which had all the indicators that it was only going to grow worse with time. But is Europe playing with demographic fire by allowing almost en-masse unchecked hordes of refugees from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) nations with Syrian claimants given near complete approval to aim for the Western European nation of their choosing with Germany expected to take in close to a million this year and a half a million each year going forward. Such stress upon an already falling population number with the indigenous majority population falling at the fastest rate will potentially lead to a major shift in the population and speed the day when Islam could become the number one religion in Western Europe. The announced infusion of refugees unfettered and automatically being granted refugee status of one percent of the German population this year alone may be only the tip of the demographic iceberg.

 

Rumors have claimed that the vast numbers of the refugees pouring into Europe are comprised largely of young males between the ages of eighteen and their mid-thirties, able-bodied young men with an extreme dearth of women refugees. This begs the question as to how these refugees will react when they are unable to find work and start to desire wives. This fact should be unsettling and raise alarms which would require that a majority of the men be married and have their families with them which might mitigate the current imbalance. It is difficult to believe that the refugee population is over eighty percent simply males under thirty yet that appears to be the largest demographic. The other troubling reality is that not all of the refugees are from Syria with the second and third largest are from Iraq and Afghanistan as well as a sizeable numbers still coming from North Africa.

History has shown that when any area approaches Islam within their border approaching just over one third of the population they have already initiated the basis for their control of all matters both legal and soon thereafter personal behavior and the onus for respect of Muslims placing them as first citizens with all other as secondary or even threatened existence. Some of the position that Islam takes over when subsuming a native population starts with restrictions upon dress and appearances. It will be a social understanding that one gets out of the way and yields to the members of Islam, women must be protectively covered so as not to overly excite men who might lose control, men should have a beard otherwise will be treated as a child, and other similar and degrading allowances. There will be their influences on the education even to include public education. There already is compliance from most European school curriculum that there is no mention of any religion other than Islam, actually there is no mention of any religion so if the Muslim child asks how a subject is reflected in the Quran, that question is allowable but should another student ask a similar question about Bible or Torah, such is a question for which that child would necessarily be advised of the incorrect behavior which might be seen as insulting to some sectors in the society. In the United States there are and always have been a number of Muslim or followers of Islam who have gone forth and worked to get themselves into positions of power and by their advice certain references to religion were banned entirely including the teaching of any battle where Christians or anyone else defeated an Islamic army. There can be no mention of the Inquisition or the freeing of Spain from its eastern influences which were largely Islamic.

 

The rate at which Germany, and we are using them as a model as they are the central power situated in the heart of Europe and holding economic power amongst other influences as do France, Britain and some others and are at the top of the Muslim list to be subsumed. Any department of the governance or other position of influence which are ever headed by a member of Islam there will be appointments, hiring and other methods of insuring perpetual control of that part of the governance. Eventually any semblance of democratic governance will be subsumed and perverted in such a manner as to place all things under the approving or negating eye of the leading Imam, a person who has memorized the Quran and the writings of Mohammad’s life, quotations and other historic holy writings of the great Imams, but who mostly can use his knowledge of the Quran to decide what is acceptable and what is an abomination and thus control all of a society. There have been many Imams who have commented about the lack of compatibility between Islam and a democratic form of governance, it is simply an impossibility as Allah must decide all things thus only an Islamic holy man is qualified to decide all matters whether public or private.

 

This will be an inevitability across all of Europe should the “refugees” be accepted as they are currently coordinated, and trust that they are being coordinated with special people sent with the intention that they will lead the Muslims in each leaders’ targeted city and they will work towards subsuming the culture and governance replacing it with Sharia. Germany has already promised to take in a number of refugees that will be an addition of one tenth, ten percent, of the entire population of Germany. This is the equivalence of one third of the Christian population, one forth the population of Atheists and Agnostics, and slightly more than doubled the numbers of Muslims bringing them to the point of almost matching the Jewish population of which Germany has the third largest Jewish population. Then, should the refugee train continue to pour in, which there is no reason to doubt it will persist for as long as the European foolishly allow an invasion by immigration, will produce an additional ten percent per every two to three years for the ten to twenty years and then Islam will be the largest religion followed in Europe and it adherents will be vocal and dominating. As much as Hungary has been derided for Prime Minister Viktor Orbán claims that he was going secure his nation’s borders from mainly Muslim migrants “to keep Europe Christian.” Victor Orbán continued in his article in Flüchtlingskrise “Those arriving have been raised in another religion, and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims,” The Hungarian Prime Minister concluded with, “Is it not worrying in itself that European Christianity is now barely able to keep Europe Christian? There is no alternative, and we have no option but to defend our borders.” These comments were insulting to any and every multiculturalist across the Western World. Should Hungary continue this “uneducated, ignorant, insulting, backwards and hateful” policy of exclusion, they may end up being the last bastion for Christians and Jews in all of Europe and the nation most threatened in Europe.

So, what should Europe do in the face of the onslaught? Perhaps they could adopt the same code they used on the sinking Titanic, women and children first, then their husbands, then the children’s grandparents, and lastly the single males without family. Perhaps they should demand that Saudi Arabia alone and the rest of the oil wealthy states combined also equal the numbers and proportions which are being inflicted upon Europe. Level of education should also be a part of the policy so those with a trade are taken before those with no education, unable to read or write and have no marketable skill or trade. There must be order placed on this chaos or else the other option will eventually come to be or else Europe will be transformed into another Islamic continent and democracy and much else will be lost including priceless relics and artworks.

 

So, what would be this other consequence which almost certainly will come to be if Europe is to remain a part of the Western World where individual freedom, religious freedom, plurality of cultures and everything which had developed starting with Torah and the Ten Commandments to the Battle at Marathon and Thermopylae and countless other struggles too numerous to list but one person does deserve the final shout-out which we award to Charles Martel, the Hammer. These things listed might present an inkling of an idea of what would come should this insane policy of completely open borders with no checks, either against known criminals, terrorist members such as ISIS (who has already announced they are using this to place future commanders and recruiters in place within Europe and the United States), al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hezballah, Hamas and countless others, as well as any other listings of people who would cause difficulties or are known to act in a destructive manner or influence which might list certain Imams who have made their name on claiming to be the one who will convert Rome or Europe to bending their knee to Allah and face Mecca five times every day and pray as Mohammad prayed. Eventually there comes the point where it becomes obvious that this has been used as an infiltration tool and it must be reversed if Europe is to remain Europe. This is when either the Europeans decide their lifestyle is worth keeping and when this is presented as the true aim of the Europeans and they are refusing to bend before their proposed Muslim betters, then Europe will likely do what Europe has proven to be the master, they will fight a war which will have had no predecessor of such scope and horrific cost, but it will be a fight for the soul of Europe, and may they heed the sagely advice of Sir Winston Churchill who wrote, possibly stated,

 

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed;
if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may
come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you
and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case.
You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because
it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
