Coming Culture Clash; Prepare or Lose by Default

 

Author Samuel Huntington stated in his book The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order that “religion is a central defining characteristic of civilizations” (1998, page 47). This war is more than just the resurgence of Islam and their battling one another between Shiites and Sunnis and between self-proclaimed Islamic Messianic leaders and secular leaders as well as everything inbetween. There is the refugee war being waged in Europe inundating the continent with Muslims in an attempt to place a fifth column waiting for the notice to ply their deadly trade. Yes, the majority, possibly the vast majority are peaceful and wish only to live and improve their lives and make a life that is better for their children. The problem is that these are not the majority of those who follow Islam and are not the majority of people outside the influences of the Anglo-American world-sphere of influence and the establishment of basic tenets of Anglo-American values. The advantage of such moral underpinning is made amply evident in the non-English speaking nations which have embraced Western values and are some of the more stable nations on planet Earth. Such examples are Germany, Japan, Philippines and possibly India. Proof that the English history is not necessarily the panacea that it has proven to be through much of the world comes via Egypt, Jordan and primarily Pakistan. What is notable is that the nations where Anglo-American influence has been less than successful are all nations within the Islamic sphere which is currently feeling it has a powerful opportunity to press once again into Europe and finally realize the conquests it has been denied for over a venture starting with the Battle of Tours which began on October 10, 732. Grand Vizier Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Pasha commanded the Islamic troops of the Ottoman Empire. The Frankish leader Charles the Hammer Martel who defeated the Islamic army and Emir Abder Rahman who was killed during the battle became an unrivaled hero who is buried alongside the Royalty of France. Then there were the fights at the other end of Europe where the lynchpin becomes Vienna where two battles were crucial, where the initial siege occurred from September 27 through October 15, 1529 which resulted in the Muslim forces took Vienna and later retreated as holding the city was troublesome. The second assault resulted in a second siege began on July 14, 1683, which was broken on September 11 and 12, 1683. The definitive forces instrumental in breaking the siege of Vienna came largely from Poland and were led by King Jan III Sobieski, who commanded the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and had been made Commander in Chief of his own 30,000-man Polish forces as well as the 40,000 troops of Habsburg and their allies.

Such history is all well and good, but what about the here and now? Oddly enough the world has changed little from the times above with the major difference was the retreat of Islamic control and absolute rule in Spain, Portugal and southern France as well as some area along the Mediterranean Sea from which they were pushed back. The other change came at the close of World War I which marked the closing chapter on the Ottoman Empire and eliminated the concept of a grand Islamic One World Governance under Sharia forming the promised final Caliphate. The lands were randomly delineated trying to make each state in the Sykes-Picot Agreement comprised of ethnic and religious groups which were not compatible and thus any rule would be a strong-man variety or a failed state. Included in this arrangement was the hope and theory for the formation of a Jewish State with Jerusalem as its Capital City. Israel plays a very vital and important role in this civilizational clash. Israel has played the role before as the lynchpin which binds and separates Asia, Africa and Europe and even today Israel receives the vast majority of media coverage, international conferences, United Nations edicts along with protestations and a drive to destroy Israel and some even call for the annihilation of the entirety of the Jewish Peoples. Some United Nations agencies, UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council) being the most guilty list making their entire living off the Arab-Israeli conflict. It truly is the Arab Israeli conflict as the Palestinian factions, Hamas, Fatah, Palestinian Authority (PA), Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Islamic Jihad and with the terrorists in Gaza are provided arms and explosives by Iran.

 

In Gaza there is additionally Hamas who are building tunnels (see below) so as to facilitate their attempts to murder Jews by confiscating an estimated ninety percent, that’s 90%, of the cement, rebar, and other necessary building supplies provided and transported into Gaza by Israel presumably for rebuilding homes, apartments, schools, clinics and other civilian items, for assault tunnels into Israel from Gaza. Some of these latest tunnels have been detected and destroyed but it is painfully obvious that there are scores more not yet discovered or detected and destroyed by Israel. At the same time, from the north in Lebanon, or should we say Hezballah and ask is there any real difference, there are closing in upon a quarter of a million rockets and missiles, many capable of striking anywhere in Israel with a five kilo warhead, all set for launch and just awaiting the order to fire. The vast majority of these launch sites are imbedded in civilian’s homes. Hezballah also claims to be tunneling using Iranian provisions and equipment as well as the provisions they have received during their fighting in Syria, Iraq and Yemen all to further the goals of Iran. The fact is that Iran also desires wiping Israel off the map and the influences of the Jews off the pages of history and literally publically sacrifices each and every Jew on the planet whether they are pro-Israel, anti-Israel as it makes little to no difference when the Islamic radical sentiments invade Western Societies. The fact that the main forces in Islam are currently fighting an endless war in Syria and Iraq may prove when history looks back on this period and hopefully will see that the Western World dodged a bullet. The debates in the United States where Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump lead the two main parties and one will be sworn in as the next President of the United States, revolves around largely which one do the voters hate less. Be that as it may, the campaign will be all about each slamming and slurring the other candidate with little substance to the debates or anything else along the campaign trail. Since both candidates have higher negatives amongst those polled, it is quite likely that slamming the opponent will prove the instrument which wins Election Day. That is a sorry state but there are some positives in that no matter which candidate should win surviving the election. With either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the White House, the possibility of another nation testing the President and their resolve to tolerate actions against the interests of the United States or most of her traditional allies as, especially under the Donald, the outward directions and actions of the United States will likely return to a traditional outlook. Still, the war between freedom and liberty versus dictatorial and oppressive governance will continue with the three main forces of such governance, Russia, China and Islam all continuing their efforts to spread further into the other nations in the world.

Russia will not permanently be seeking expansion and may even retreat from the Crimean Peninsula returning it to the Ukraine. Putin still might expand into the Eastern nations which broke off from Russian as the Soviet Union collapsed all the way back in the past century. The current greatest challenge to freedom and liberty are the forces of Islam. The main reason Europe has not fallen to these powers is simple, their preoccupation with Israel has crippled their efforts. What has been a saving grace for Europe has also placed Europe particularly susceptible to invasion and a complete takeover by Islam without using their armies. The free world will also need to pay close attention to the Sunni-Shiite battle for preeminence. The lines are starkly drawn, Iran which now controls southern Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon, Yemen and is stretching its fingers into the remainder of the oil fields of northern Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and central Iraq. Further, all of the different Sunni Islamic powers of Saudi Arabia, the Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram and Islamic State and GCC States (Gulf Cooperation Council) working in concert better targeting their actions will compete for as much of Europe and North and Central Africa. The spread of Islam into Europe will continue apace with little preventing the refugees from continuing to flood into Europe from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, anywhere in the Middle East. Israel can expect challenges of their hold on the Golan Heights as well as threats from Lebanon and from Gaza and the occasional rocket across their southern border with stateless forces from Sunni and Shiite forces need also watch for any provocation of Egypt who might decide to clear out the Sinai Peninsula. Another set of sources of refugees from Islamic nations threaten Italy as we are referring to refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea from Libya, Algeria, Nigeria, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mali, Niger, Chad, South Sudan and any other African Refugees. Amongst the refugees are likely a good number of terrorists ranging from one in ten to a more realistic estimate of one in seven or even five.

 

The truly frightening thing is the number of Islamic people who are completely normal individuals who say their prayer most days, all five repetitions at their appointed times, and reads the Quran regularly, especially some of the recent teachings and they tend towards a quiet and peaceable life. The neighborhood will remain quiet until a single terrorist joins the otherwise peaceable and quiet neighborhood. Now there has been introduce a fuse and all that is required is the blasting cap and Islam will rear its ugly side and violence will break out and everybody will be wondering what happened, why it happened and how could such have happened. The answer is the Quran and the Hadiths. Muslims are instructed by their religious writings to assist another Muslim in any endeavor and doubly special to assist Jihad, the forceful spread of Islam by the sword. Peaceful Muslims are different than other religious devotees. A Muslim has the potential programmed by their learning of the Quran, and if they are a good Muslim they have the entirety of the Quran memorized and know which verses supercede what versus. Because the Quran is written smallest verses to largest verses such that it is designed to be memorized but not interpreted without an Imam to instruct in the proper precedence and superceding versus. More can be read about this in our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? As the good, quiet, respectable and good neighbors know the Quran in its entirety and the superceding verses, when they are called to Jihad their choice becomes extremely precarious as if they are seen to resist too much they will become the target of their former friends because their refusal to take up Jihad makes them an apostate, a disbeliever born to Islam. That is a crime immediately punishable by death and not just their but much of their family and most definitely their wives unless one of the Jihadists decided he desires one of your wives. As long as the children are even sufficiently young to be brought up to be a “better” Muslim than Dad they will be allowed to live and if they are already of sufficient age for Jihad they will be tested. Probably one will be assigned to be a suicide homicidal bomber. So, just because the Muslims in your neighborhood are members of the neighborhood watch, the clean-up committee, property maintenance battalion and nearly every neighborhood help project, they may be doing so just to earn your trust, find out intelligence, who had firearms, where are they kept and the layouts of the houses, entrances, emergency keys and every other thing you thought you had kept hidden so that they know the weak spots and where not to strike until ready, very ready. They will be counting on their neighbors to vouch for their wonderful and helpful nature and be character witnesses before the police. All the while he was a potential Jihad waiting to happen only needing a leader to assign tasks and targets.

 

On the other hand, Muslims do all they can to get on the school committees, especially those which choose the books. Their Jihad is teaching Islam in the schools and making your secular raised children into good little Muslims who can say the prayer for conversion and know the five pillars of Islam and all about assisting any Muslim in need of help and how their parents are evil if they are not Muslim, oh, and it all is a secret between them and the school. This indoctrination begins as early as first grade and the reading lessons have as parts of their content. Their getting on school boards is all part of the civilizational Jihad with which they are planning on turning the United States and Canada. Sure, we realize this all sounds impossible but there are cases of this being found in areas which would shock those residing there as they have no idea their little Sally or Johnny is being converted to Islam and as long as the Parents have no real attachment to any religion and are true liberals they think many of the lesson plans which have hadiths and Quranic verses included within the lessons but not presented as Quranic, then they will likely get by any parent, especially if they are Mecca verses and not Medina verses. Jihad, be it silent and deceitful or overt and blowing up in your face, either way, they are both Jihad, one by sword the other by collusion. Either way produces the same results, good little Muslims plain and simple. Europe is all but lost and many nations will need to produce rivers of blood, much of it the indigenous peoples while other places are still well within the range of retrieving your neighborhood. The first step is the most difficult; one must return to their faith and pray for strength and guidance like never before. If your home has no religion then the school will implant Islam to fill that void, it is your choice, decide before it becomes too late, period.

North Korea Threat Update

 

Recent satellite surveillance of North Korea has shown a greater number of vehicles parked and coming and going from the nuclear test control center just a few kilometers away from their actual test site though little activity has been photographed at the test site. The lack of photo evidence of deliveries or activity at the actual test site could be timed to only be visible between the known scheduled overfly times of the satellites which are not exactly a well-kept secret. This activity is additionally suspicious as the Party hierarchy has opened the first full congress of its ruling party since 1980. Ruling Dictator Kim Jong Un will be in attendance but the media will not as the Party Congress is being held behind closed doors. This has raised the suspicions that Kim Jong Un may be using the Congress to shuffle leadership positions and a capping of the Congress with another nuclear test of a hydrogen thermonuclear device as exclamation point launch. This would be their fifth nuclear test and possibly the third of their hydrogen bomb.

 

Taking all of these events and potential for a shakeup of the leadership along with the mixed but largely successful testing of launching of ballistic missile from a submerged, it has become obvious that virtually every city on Earth has now become within strike range from North Korean missiles. The size and range of such a submarine launch has not been determined but it is thought the current proven booster used in the tests only have about a two hundred kilometer range. Still, this placed most Capital Cities of Western World nations within range, particularly the United States. The progress made in new weapons and weapons delivery technologies has made North Korea a threat to many nations in their immediate area from Japan to China and Russia and beyond with their submersed launch capability. Should there be a nuclear test by North Korea then much of the bellicose sabre rattling may require a more serious consideration as to whether any of their threats may have actual substance.

 

Analysis from 38 North said the imagery of the Punggye-ri test site control center has shown really heavier than usual activity as noted above. The suspicions were raised as this increase in activity coinciding with the Party Congress and the fact that Kim Jung Un would be personally leading the Party Congress and that it was an all-inclusive Congress, a rarity in North Korea. The fact that both events appear to be scheduled so close together, this has raised the interest of the experts and amateurs in putting forth their thoughts on the reasoning and what the results might be. Prognostications are always a tricky business, especially for bloggers whose sources do not exactly include Pentagon experts, but we try anyways. We are expecting some shake-up of the Party mid-level officials altering the preferred individuals for future top Party positions. The high level Party officials will likely not be shuffled though some alterations of responsibilities may be switched from one department to another most likely to improve efficiency. If there are higher level changes, they will rotate around military commanders. We expect the officers who worked on the submarine submerged launch capabilities to be honored at the meeting and perhaps some leading people put on their next project while junior commanders will take charge of completing and perfecting the submerged firing capability to assure it approaches perfection and dependability and potentially attempting to attempt launches from deeper depths.

 

Should there actually be another test of a thermonuclear device, we can expect the leadership to perfect a miniaturized warhead deliverable through the submerged launch booster thus making the weapon truly a threat worldwide. They may also have them working on a thermonuclear warhead which will have a selectable yield programmed before deployment thus permitting selecting the desired yield such that any additional collateral damage could be minimized. The one side effect from any test will be the providing of the United States and other nations to gather more data and perhaps discern the intended use of the weapons. There are those who theorize that the hydrogen device is not being used as a thermonuclear device in the traditional blast-wave destruction mode but as a super EMP (electromagnetic pulse) device. The amount of damage a normal atomic bomb produces as an EMP would be capable of bringing down the North American electric grid blacking out Canada as well as the United States. The advantage of using a thermonuclear warhead as a super EMP device is quite frightening as the additional power for any usage would also apply to it being utilized as a Super EMP which could be detonated even at any height and simply relatively close to the optimum location and still produce sufficient EMP energy to more than make-up for any miss of the optimum location and height for the detonation.

 

Those whose job it is to worry and discern all things North Korea and has to keep everything updated will necessarily be watching, listening and monitoring as things progress and then making the reports, some of which will hopefully be made public so we all can use it. Meanwhile, we will keep an ear to the ground and listen for the reverberations as well as the ramifications of any nuclear test, missile launch or artillery barrages emanating from North Korea which has become less stable and even less predictable under Kim Jung Un which likely has added to their cooperation and technology sharing with Iran which makes both nations additionally dangerous. The world must contemplate Iranian missile technology married to North Korean nuclear weapons technology and additionally North Korean submarine submerged launch capability and both North Korea and Iran have become dangerous and hegemonic in their ends of Asia and the Middle East. They are a constant threat to all nations anywhere near either one and only India and Israel are capable of challenging them, and those could become hard pressed should an arms race be launched, especially in the Middle East which any such race will see Saudi Arabia buying all the devices they would initially require from Pakistan and then use whatever plans they would need from Pakistan and potentially raw materials as well. Egypt, Turkey, Qatar, UAE (United Arab Emirates), Oman and potentially any combination of MENA (Middle East North Africa) nations could develop or otherwise acquire nuclear weaponry and the delivery systems turning the MENA tinder box into a nuclear tinder box where everyone is smoking, heavily and too many are being careless with where they throw their lit matches. There is one situation paralleled to this which makes North Korea seem less threatening which can be found simply looking past India to the heart of the Middle East. There you find Iran threatening all and backing the worst of the worst all while making promises to wipe all of Israel from the map. Iran has recently tested some modified and improved ballistic missiles which have sufficient range to strike France but when having an exercise with testing launches of ballistic missiles they had on them “Israel should be wiped off the Earth” written on the missiles in Hebrew and Arabic, after all, must have the easy to read propaganda for the home front. Sure frames their mindset, doesn’t that!

Coming Death of Europe and the European Union

 

 

Finally British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlin’s Peace for Our Time which started World War II can be put to rest just as it put the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg which started World War I to rest. That might indicate to many that German Chancellor Angela Markell’s announcement that Germany would accept 800,000 Syrian refugees which was the dropping of the European Union flag starting the final invasion of Europe as we know her, the bitter and painful death of Europe and the European Union.

If those flooding into Europe were actually families of all ages with many being three, four or even five generations traveling seeking a sane and orderly place to rebuild their lives, then it would be acceptable. But these are not largely families nor are they all Syrians; these are refugees from the length and breadth of the troubled Middle East from Pakistan and Afghanistan to Yemen to Libya to Somalia. The problem is the non-Syrian members of the refugee hordes and those both planted and others simply the product of a poor education system who are easily influenced by those planted within these groups who will spread influence and others who are easily influenced by these placed within the systems.

 

The fuel which will sustain the fires, both literal and figurative, has been in place and willing to follow any leader who promises a better future. That better future which will excite the youths from the existing Islamic populations whose parents fled the exact same system as what will be promised as the solution to their problems, a system where these underprivileged youths who have received an inexcusably poor education or were raised in Islamic Madrasas which have been subverted simply teaching the promises of jihad and the redistributional systems where they will be given their shares of a new society which they will bring into existence through violence and revolution. The greatest share of the wealth they redistribute will necessarily end up in the pockets of the instigators and the real power gained will also be exclusively shared by the leaders of this grand jihad, this grand revolution which is fed by class and racial rhetoric which will stoke the fires of the inequality of wealth distribution and their inherent right to these riches after the conquest of Europe.

 

The real problem also lied in the freedom to travel anywhere within the European Union once one establishes residency in any one of the European Union nations. This will make the spread of the instigators and facilitators crossing from one country to the next always preaching the same story of how the riches of those who now rule have stolen from them and their right once the new order of the Sharia and Islamic rule has been established. Any Muslim who tries to prevent their youths from making the same mistakes which were behind the failures of the Arab Spring or committing themselves to instituting the exact same governments which have spread the misery equally to those being enslaved by a government that is all about submission; will be imprisoned, if they are fortunate, or executed. This includes but is not limited to submission to Allah, submission to Islam, submission to the Sharia, submission to the Iman and submission to the government which will claim be to be an extension of Allah. The Imans, the Sharia and the hierarchical system of a dictatorial theocracy control the real wealth and power. It will be vested in the few at the top and just sufficiently shared with the highest tier in the political and religious scale of a strictly ordered society and the Imans who tell great stories of the shahids who liberated the land for Allah. The state of affairs for the masses will be little different after the initial spoils are redistributed much as was true immediately after the French Revolution which soon led to a secondary revolution between the two then opposing solutions and the strongest but not necessarily the best side won and the French have been attempting to perfect their socialist order and their republic all the while missing the systemic problems within socialism, but fear not as the winds of change are about to blow and blow with the very fires of religious fervor and unprecedented zeal not seen since the Inquisition and sharing much of the same horrors.

 

The winds of Islamic Caliphate are coming to Europe and the only antidote has been forsaken to such a point as there is little if any hope that Europe will find the resolute will and G0d fearing faith to make the sacrifices necessary to combat the evil that is coming. The disease which fathered this change has been a long time building and its most apparent problem has been the cause of the necessity to bring in foreign sources of labor which will now extinguish all that Europe has built and either tear the signs of Western based systems and their most obvious symbols out by the roots or convert these monolithic cathedrals into Grand Mosques and take the statues and obelisks which festoon Old Europe out by their roots. The architecture will have to be altered to please the new masters and some obvious pillars to another time will need be torn asunder. The prime example would be Titus’s Arch with its symbols of Roman General Titus’ spoils from the defeat of Jerusalem and the putting down of the Jewish (Israelite) revolt and taking the spoils of war by taking the sacramental treasures from and sacking of the Second Temple back to Rome a sign of his triumph (see images below).

 

 

Islam in its current Jihadi form refuses to permit the colossal works such as Titus’s Arch on the Via Sacra in the Forum Romanum, Rome, Italy (above) or the Arc de Triumph stands in the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées, Paris, France (below) as such works either predate Islam, Titus’s Arc, or have no reference or meaning in Islam, Arc de Triumph, thus are simply distractions from Muhammad and Allah and as such are deserving of destruction. These also represent great victories or are standards or national monuments and as such must be brought low before they inspire some future generation to reassert their national pride. Without such reminders of a past independent from Islam it is far easier to keep the people in a state of submission.

Further, a people in submission without any signs, monuments, great works of art, literature, movies, music, or anything else not honoring Islam and declaring the superiority and completeness of Islam are inconsequential. A story, apparently first appearing in the thirteenth century (mentioned first by Abd al Latif, who died in 1231, and later by Gregory Bar Hebraeus, who died in 1286), says that the Arabs, under Caliph Umar, destroyed the Alexandria Library shortly after the conquest of Egypt in 639 AD. The story rumored that Caliph Umar stated, “This library, if the books it contains agreed with the Koran, then they are superfluous, and if they disagree, then they are heretical. In either event, they are worthless and should be obliterated.” The books of the Library were put to the torch being used to heat the palace baths. Such was the reasoning which led to the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan by the Taliban claiming they were the objects of idolatry and thus an abomination which must be destroyed. Similar claims have been documented for the actions of the Islamic State when they came upon items which were not of Islamic origins, especially if they were from religions which predated Islam.

We covered the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan in our article titled Israeli Choice Between Terminal Terror or Settling Our Lands which were one of a number of such desecrations committed in the recent past and if Islamic State, the Taliban, and al-Qaeda get their way, the destruction has just begun. The items which would stand a high likelihood of being destroyed upon Islamic, especially the ardently zealous, passionately obsessive and compulsively dedicated with a fanatical devotion to Islam and solely Islam, possession of Western Europe would include irreplaceable artwork originals including the entirety of the Louvre in Paris, France. So many victory and other celebratory arches and obelisks, untold statues, historic sites, religious monoliths such as Stonehenge and countless libraries, film collections and archives, art museums and so much more as to be unthinkable. Further, many churches would be transformed into Mosques or otherwise destroyed, the main cathedrals would have their ornate artwork and mosaics plastered over as was done to the Hagia Sophia, the complete destruction of the Sistine Chapel as that has solid irreplaceable artwork, much done by the greatest painters of the day such as Michael Angelo as well as the stores in the Vatican vaults, their artwork and so much more (especially if the rumors are true that the original vessels, sacrificial items, the candelabra and other artifacts taken from the Second Temple by Titus referred to above and came into the hands of the Catholic Church early in the formation of the church and have been kept hidden and official denials issued when approached on the subject. But there will be other events which will change the entire scenario long before it gets to the horrific stages expected to arrive sooner rather than later.

 

The main problem has been the split between Old Europe (Western Europe) and the former Warsaw Pact Nations (Eastern Europe) with the most forceful stances taken have been Poland and Hungary who have refused to permit any refugees from remaining within their borders. The problem will come to a head once the refugees are issued European Union National identity cards or Blue Cards to be able to work throughout the European Union. Once the refugees gain the ability to travel, work, reside and cross into any European Union country, those nations who have refused to allow them entry except to pass through on to Germany, France, Scandinavia or anywhere other than Poland, Hungary and the other Eastern European nations and European Union members for now will soon be leaving the European Union either by choice or dictate. We suspect that once this comes to a head that the United Kingdom, which is already about to have a referendum on whether to remain in the European Union, and the majority of eastern bloc European Union member nations will all flee from their membership or attempt to remain members and also be permitted to define who may or may not cross their borders for as long as the refugee situation persists. If the European Union decides to be stubborn and refuse the eastern bloc nations, then there is a good chance that we are witnessing the immediate death of the European Union. If exceptions are granted for the former Warsaw Pact nations, then the days of the European Union are numbered. The European Union cannot long survive once it has granted that as long as member nations insist, then there can be different rules for some and the binding rules for the others you have an untenable situation where all European Union nations are equal, just some are more equal than others. That never has worked very well.

 

This situation was partially brought on by shifting population numbers where replacement levels were not met for a number of decades now. Germany having one of the worst within all of the European Union member nations may have been spurred by the vital need for younger workers as their pension bill increases and the number of workers kept declining, not a situation with which any nation can long survive. The same problem but nowhere near as severe has struck the United States thus one of the reasons there is no great hurry to close the southern border. The situation in the United States is not comparable to that of the European Union as in the United States the situation is being addressed by ignoring the influx of illegals across the Rio Grande River. The United States is blessed in that their illegal immigrants are largely Hispanic Christians with a large number either Catholic or after reaching the shores of the United States discovering and becoming Evangelical Christians. That is a far smoother transition than what Europe is facing. Further, the immigrants to the United States are coming with the intent of becoming Americans and assimilating with the exception of their intentions to remain religious or at least more religious than the average American, sad but true.

 

The Europeans are facing an entirely different problem. The refugees and the illegal immigrants which have been flooding Europe from the south by crossing the Mediterranean Sea, have an entirely separate and different religious, social, and political background which is completely in every way incompatible with European history, European religious freedom, even freedom from religion for the majority, work skill levels, educational levels, morals, social ethics, and just about everything right down to food choices. Their inclusion will completely alter what it means to be European. These illegal refugees from across the Mediterranean Sea are far more likely to adopt at least some of the European ethos while those coming from the east out of the Middle and Central East from as diverse a set of nations as imaginable will be mixed with most being honest refugees and amongst them hidden in plain sight will be entire terror squads. On top of the Christian Syrian refugees and some Iraqi Christians who compose the smallest of the smallest percentages, there are influxes of Islamic, largely Sunni which may perhaps be the slightest of breaks, with refugees arriving other than Syrian there are also Iraqi, Afghans, Pakistani, Yemenis, Iranian Arabs, Saudis and even some Egyptians and Sudanese. This is a challenging mix and the fact that many of the refugees have little or no skills and at best a rudimentary education level, is a complete change from what the European Union nation are accustomed. This is a completely separate and alien set of backgrounds which will also present problems in finding them employment. This is a problem as the last thing the European nations and the European Union do not need is a workforce who require rudimentary educations and training on even what a time-clock is and the stress in European society will quickly hit the breaking point and soon thereafter the boiling point.

 

We may be about to witness the splintering of the European Union. The first ones to bow out will be the eastern and former soviet Warsaw Block nations who might return to Russian orbit or may strike out on their own. Should the Eastern Europeans decide to make their own version of the European Union then Israel should use her friendship with Poland, the Czech Republic, the Baltic States and any others to receive preferable trade relations and potentially membership in any group they might form but Israel should be careful that these nation are not taking their time to simply gain a better bargain in reentering the Russian orbit. Some of the Eastern European Nations favor Israel, even more so than many of the Western European nations who are behind the BDS in Europe and have taken the Western European nations and have been instrumental in financing NGOs which oppose Israel and support the destruction of Israel and replacing it with yet another failed Arab kleptocracy. The strangest thing was the admission by Mahmoud Abbas that he had refused to accept or even make a counter proposal, just as did Yasser Arafat before him, too he rejected an offer from Israel’s Ehud Olmert which included placing Jerusalem’s Old City under international control and granting his 99.5% of the lands he demands and a tunnel between Judea and Gaza for Arab use only. Whatever the reason he gave, it was most definitively a bald faced lie! Abbas was offered lands from the triangle to offset for the settlement area Israel was retaining. Still the Arab capital would have been in East Jerusalem. Abbas was basically admitting that he could not be made happy with a loaf of bread under each arm and a bag full of marmalade, butter and some India Black Tea on the pot waiting. There is no hope short of marching the population of Israel westward into the Mediterranean and then Abbas would continue to take millions and then complain to the world that he needed more to be held responsible and if they did not fill the coffers. The world will eventually tire of that petulant child and his temper tantrums and let him scream and pound the floor kicking and screaming until he passes out. We can turn on the televisions if need be, but this they would not cover, but no matter, most Israelis we have had enough with the suited terrorist and his lies and false claims, his projection and finally, his damage to the Arab people whom he supposedly serves. We guess that is what you get when you deal with charlatans who are only in the game for the terror and pain they can inflict and the dollars and Euros they are able to steal, all else be damned.
