It Is Not Just Israel Muslims Claim

 

It’s the entire world. But perhaps we should start small and work our way to the entirety of reality. Their current concentration is focused on the crown jewel of the world, Jerusalem itself. There is another name for Jerusalem, which lives in the heart of Judaism, Zion. The very meaning behind Zionism and the Muslims know this, for that is why they make it their central demand as their capital. The idea is to deny the Jews their own nation, self-rule and the right to have an army with which to defend themselves. Yasser Arafat made the original statement that has become the mantra for the Jerusalem is holy only to the followers of Allah when he threatened, “A million Shaheeds will march on Jerusalem.” Thusfar there have been no marches by Shaheeds on Jerusalem, but there has been the normative response to President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as since the speech, thirteen rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel. Three were fired two nights past and still no coverage anywhere else in the world about these attacks upon Israel. But the media may soon awaken as that same night Israel responded striking three known Hamas facilities, training and weapons storage sites. Now the media will announce that Israel has bombed Gaza and mention the tragic damage and the number of people whose coffee was spilt as they were startled and about paragraph four or five will be the mention, in passing of course, that the strikes were in response to numerous rocket attacks on Israel. The media is well aware that the majority of their readers hardly ever read beyond the third paragraph and thus many will believe that Israel attacked Hamas and Gaza for no reason. The world is playing a very dangerous game which will come back to haunt them some day.

 

The world needs to learn about Islam and the goals, which were set for the religion by the founders who wrote the Quran. The final Quran was written from memories and collected written versions of parts of the presumable original writings, which may have been written during the life of Muhammad. The writing and compiling began with Abu Bakr, and then passed on to the next Caliph, Umar ibn Al-Khattab who then passed it on to others until it was finalized under the supervision of Uthman ibn Affan. This final compendium was set approximately twenty to thirty years after Muhammad’s death. The main reason for Islam, according to the teachings and prophesies of Muhammad was to bring both Judaism and Christianity to a close replacing both as Islam was the final revelation of Allah. Islam claimed that every individual from the Old Testament, the Torah specifically, were actually Muslims. Such individuals Islam claims were followers include but are not limited to Adam, Eve, Noah, Moses, Abraham, Isaak, Yaakov and Aaron. Further, Solomon built a Mosque, not the Temple. The fact that Islam came many thousands of years later apparently poses no problem for the followers of Islam. Their claim is that the Jews and then the Christians had diverted from the teachings of Allah as they had been given to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus requiring for Muhammad to be retold the original message from Allah correcting everything that Jews had believed for two thousand years, despite it being presumably incorrect. So, the Quran claims that Judaism and Christianity are presumed to be tainted beliefs, which have fallen away from the true teachings of Islam, and as they were presumed to have originally been Muslims and now follow false beliefs, they are heretics. Jews and Christians are to be saved only by having them return to Islam and the entire world is to be brought to the sole and only true faith for all of mankind. That is true; they believe they must bring every last human being to Allah, no exceptions. They are also informed that those who refuse to follow Islam are to be relieved of their life of sin. This is why some have claimed that Islam believes they are to conquer the world for Allah.

 

What does all of this mean for everyone outside of Israel? Well, the first thing it means is that with time you will face everything which has been done by Muslims to Israel. This trend has already become evident with the spread of terrorism to Europe and then the United States. Israel has been facing the terror threats since well before the founding of the state of Israel in May of 1948. This was most obvious during the 1929, 1933 and 1939 Arab rioting in Jerusalem, Hevron and elsewhere with the intent of murdering and maiming Jews in an effort to turn back the tide of Zionism and prevent the Jews from realizing their dream. When this did not result in preventing the founding of the Jewish State, the Arab League declared war on Israel with six nations, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Egypt, all attacking Israel from every direction aided by Muslim militias from throughout the Islamic world. If ever there was a modern day miracle, it was the survival of the nascent state of Israel over 1948-49 in the first Arab War of Israeli Annihilation. There were two more such wars, the Six Day War in 1967, and the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Once those proved that regular military attack was highly unlikely to ever result in the defeat of Israel, they changed their tactics turning to terror.

 

The initial decision to start with terror was in 1964 with the establishing of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, PLO. In 1964, Israel was obviously still within the pre 1967 War borders, so exactly what lands was the PLO founded to liberate as Palestine. If your answer was Israel meaning places such as Tel Aviv, Netanya, Hadera, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Akko and the rest of Green Line Israel, you are correct. When the Oslo Accords were signed, the Palestinian Authority (PA), the replacement name for the PLO presumably now a friend to Israel, was charged with altering the Charter to no longer call for the destruction of all of Israel in exchange for promises from Israel. Well, Israel delivered and the PLO and PA never have altered their Charter which still calls for the complete destruction of Israel. Once, when Western observers including representatives from the United States witnessed a PA government session, there was a vote to form a committee to look into ways in which the Charter might be altered to satisfy the Oslo Accords and as none of the observers spoke any Arabic and all relied on PA provided interpreters, left believing that the Charter had actually been amended during what they witnessed. The committee was never formed and the Charter still calls for the Destruction of Israel while the West continues with the false pretense that the Charter reads as they would like it to read. What is really as sad as it is dangerous is the fact that much of Europe there are those who could not bother to care one way or the other concerning anything in the Middle East, especially Jews and Israel, unless it affects their lives directly, which more often than not, until recently it never did. The rest mostly actively desire the destruction of Israel and the good thing is these people realize the truth concerning the Arabs and Israel and the bad news is they fully support the end of Israel and the Jews if possible. Anti-Semitism is alive and doing well in Europe. The really sad truth is anti-Semitism is growing in the United States, particularly on college and university campuses where billions of invested Arab petro-dollars have bought them serious influence on the curriculum of Middle East studies and even many Political Science Departments, History Departments, Sociology Departments and other social sciences. They do not attempt to influence the hard sciences, as it is difficult to make any alarming alterations to studies which have actual truths which the sciences teach, as these are very unforgiving subjects with real and actual truths. Even more threatening is that these influences are being carried out on some of the most influential campuses in the nation and thus are affecting some, if not many, of the future leaders of government and industry. This too will have a price in the future, as now it is as if the world has been turned upside-down.

 

A World All Upside Down

A World All Upside Down

 

Reality is that what has been happening in Israel is coming to the rest of the world and will come with fury and storm. The violence which we have suffered in Israel will now be visited on Europe and, if the United States is not prudent, will strike in the United States soon as well. What will be another sad commentary will be those who will claim that the violence waged against Western nations is because of the Jewish presence and if only the Jews would recant and make whatever amends are demanded of them, then the Muslims would be satisfied and the terrorism would end. There will be demands from Western governments that Israel be forced to concede to the Arab demands and this will very probably lead to nations demanding in the United Nations for Israeli membership be revoked and the articles calling for the founding be erased allowing for the world to pretend Israel has no right to exist. People find this difficult to understand but even the United States will turn against Israel and those who support Israel will face rage and anger beyond imagination. Israel will become the difficult question and Jerusalem will be as in Zechariah 12:3 where it opens with, “On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.” Unfortunately, for Israel, which will suffer greatly as this day approaches, and even more so for the nations of the earth when they batter themselves and Hashem reveals his might for the entirety of man to perceive. But after that, the world will make a choice, may it be a wise choice.

Israel Just Turned Sixty-Nine

 

The renewed State of Israel just turned sixty-nine in the usual emotionally roller-coaster ride. In Israel there is an unique lead in to celebrating the rebirth of the nation state for the Israelite People, also known in modern time as the Jews (more on that in a bit). A little while before the celebratory day we commemorate the remembrance of those lost in the Holocaust. Then the day immediately before Independence day we commemorate all those who have fallen in our defensive struggle to remain a thriving and wonderful nation, but we might be a tad bit biased as citizens living in Israel and very happy with our choice to make Aliyah. Memorial Day includes the soldiers and civilians including Christians, Muslims, Arabs, Bedouins, Druze, Baha’I, other racial and religious peoples who are represented in the society which is Israel and, of course, the Jews. Memorial Day also includes all of the above who have died or suffered debilitating and life altering injuries due to terrorism. Needless to point out, this is a very solemn day filled with tears and sorrow until sundown. That is when a transformation takes place that unless witnessed is impossible to envision. Sundown on the Jewish calendar marks the start of the next day, Independence Day and some of the highest spirits and joyous occasions in all of Israel. People dance in the streets, sing joyously, some pray, some chant their prayer aloud in the street, others soak it all in and are filled with a satisfaction and a warm glowing joy. Then there are of course speeches by politicians (something we unfortunately cannot prevent as they will talk, that is their job, to talk us into submission), singing (this is great usually even if in Hebrew and you do not yet speak Hebrew), dancing both with and without singing, music and in the midst of all this they launch a good half an hour or more of fireworks, and all this is in the town center of one of the smaller cities in Israel. If one wished to sit atop one of the twenty or thirty story building’s roofs, then they could gather in the little fact that the suburbs, other downtown neighborhoods, the neighboring Kibbutzim and all over the area there would be other fireworks and the sky would light up in sparkling explosions and bright sprinkles of joy in almost every direction one would look, well, except west as the Mediterranean Sea is west of our town.

 

Well, time for a short bit of history and why Israelite became to be known as Jews. If one were to take the refounding of the State for the Israelite People with Jerusalem as their Capital City, then Israel in approximately three-thousand-one-hundred-fifty-years old. That is because somewhere between 1,000 BCE and 1150 BCE King David took an elite group from his army and entered Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) in the middle of the night and took care of the majority of the night guard, took over the main gates and opened them to allow the rest of the Israelite army to enter Yerushalayim. From that day forward, Yerushalayim became the Capital City of Israel and the Israelite People such that wherever they would reside they prayed facing Yerushalayim. Many of their services, especially the Passover Haggadah, end with the final phrase of, “Next Year in Yerushalayim.” History would note that King David’s son, King Solomon would build the Temple to Hashem allowing for a place for Hashem’s presence on Earth to settle. The Ark of the Covenant rested within the Holy of Holies, the central chamber within a chamber within the Temple. Only the Cohen Gadol (Heb. כהן גדול) was permitted to enter and then only on Yom Kippur when he was to atone and account for the people’s sins and the state of Israelite society and its reverence towards Torah. The Cohen Gadol would have a strong narrow rope capable of dragging his remains from the chamber attached to his ankle in case the recounting went badly. There are many accountings of attributes, the positions the Cherubim would face atop the Ark of the Covenant and other strict rules on how the Cohen Gadol was to prepare for entering the Holy of Holies. Let it rest that we are quite glad that we could never qualify for the position.

 

There was the instance when during a war the Israelites lost the Ark of the Covenant allowing the Ark to be captured in a battle they lost because they took the Ark of the Covenant without having been instructed by Hashem to do so. Things went quite badly for whatever city it was harbored. City after city would pass it off to save themselves and finally they begged the Israelites to take the accursed item back and never to allow it in their lands again. The Israelites took the Ark of the Covenant back with great joy and great care in handling the Ark. The Temple was subsequently destroyed by the Babylonians and the Ark of the Covenant was nowhere to be found and has remained in hiding ever since. Also between the building of the First Temple and the Babylonian conquest and destruction of Yerushalayim and the Temple when Solomon dies the nations split into two kingdoms, the Northern Kingdom held ten tribes plus their priests and was named Israel and the southern nations was called Judea as it was made up of Juda and Benyamin, two tribes and Juda was the larger of the two. Judea also controlled Yerushalayim. The Assyrians conquered the Northern Kingdom of Israel and never were they heard from until recently since the formation of the State of Israel, where these tribes emerge from around the globe and have proven genetic links to the Nation of Israel and the Israelite People. They were, and oft still are, referred to as the ten lost tribes of Israel. The Southern Nation continued until the Roman dispersion and their people were referred to as Judeans, which over time shortened and shortened until Judean became Jude and finally simply became Jew.

 

While in captivity, the Babylonians demanded our Priests sing songs for them so they wrote the Song of Babylon, which includes a very strong reference to the special place Yerushalayim plays in the lives of the Israelites. The Song of Babylon is also known as Psalms – Chapter 137 and those special lines are below.

Sing for us of the song of Zion.
How shall we sing the song of the Lord on foreign soil?
If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill (lose its cunning and strength)
May my tongue cling to my palate (roof of my mouth), if I do not remember you,
if I do not bring up Jerusalem at the beginning of my joy.
Remember, O Lord, for the sons of Edom, the day of Jerusalem, those who say,
“Raze it, raze it, down to its foundation!”

Babylon fell to Cyrus the Great who received the title of Great because he allowed the Israelites to return home to rebuild their Temple and worship Hashem. Truth be told, just as in Egypt with the Exodus, far less than half the Jews took the offer to return and reclaim their lands and make them productive. Many claim that both times the number was merely ten percent, we like to believe we could get at least double if not two and a half times as many, a full quarter of the Israelites. But many remained throughout the Persian Empire. Things went well until a descendent of one of the Israelites old enemies came back to haunt them. His name was Haman and he was the Visor (top advisor) to King Achashverosh. King Achashverosh called for his wife, Queen Vashti and her reply was, “No.” This angered King Achashverosh so he had her removed from her position as the Queen by beheading her. King Achashverosh held a contest to choose a new wife; a Jewess named Esther won and became Queen of Persia. Haman persuaded King Achashverosh that the Jews were a threat to his throne and had a Royal Order sent to all the regions that the Jews be killed on a set day. Esther’s Uncle Mordechai told her of these plans and asked her to intervene with the King, which at first she shrank from the task, but was persuaded to act. King Achashverosh could not repeal his first order so he issued a new order demanding that the Jews fight back and let the true people persevere. Haman and his sons hanged on the very gallows they had built to use on the Jews and on that fateful day the Jews won out and more anti-Semites died that day than any other day in history.

 

After this, there was a brief period of calm and then came the Greeks and Alexander who found circumcision to be abhorrent as they worshiped the human form and thought people to be born with perfection and it was an anathema to them to cut or change the body in any manner. Many Jews could not accept their making circumcision illegal and circumcision was simple to discern and once detected they faced sentencing to death. This caused them to live hidden in the caves of the Judean Hills away from the prying eyes of the Greek soldiers and officials. The Jews survived the Greeks despite many Jews being tempted and turning to following the Greek worship of idols. These were called Hellenized Jews and were very similar in many ways to the American and European Jews who have slowly over the years turned from their religion and now act as if they were gentiles in all manners except for attending church, but then many Europeans and a fair number of Americans, mostly leftists, also do not attend church. Then the Romans came replacing the Greeks and not much changed until the Jews managed to win their freedom briefly from the Romans who returned in force, defeated the Jews, and passed new restrictive laws in the hope it would break their will and force them to be Roman. Apparently, they were not familiar with Torah where the Israelites are often referred to as a stiff-necked people and stubborn beyond measure. The Jews managed the impossible and threw off Roman Rule a second time, Rome sent several legions, and this defeat was definitive. They dispersed much of the Jewish population to the far corners of their empire and everywhere in between with the hope that this dispersion would be the end of the Jewish People. Rome understood that a people without any connection to land became weak-willed and soon lost any mutual ties and became estranged and their being a nation terminated. The Jews were different because they were not tied to the land as much as they were tied to Torah, and the Romans could not take Torah away from the Jews, they had it memorized along with commentary, customs, celebrations and every iota which was within. This was the precious heritage that they passed on generation-to-generation and what kept the Jewish People defined as a people. It is Torah, which also is found in some traceable form that most of these tribes being discovered still observe to this day. They continue to observe the Sabbath from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday and hold the Seder for Passover and every other tradition plus a few new ones commemorating great miracles in their lives.

 

Timeline of Ancient Israelites from Abraham to the Roman Conquest

 

All of this brings us to the pertinent question, did Israel just turn sixty-nine as it was born in 1948, or was this the celebration of Israel turning somewhere around three-thousand-two-hundred-fifty years old from the anointing of the first King of Israel, King Saul? But that leaves out Moses which brings us to this being the three-thousand-four-hundred plus years old and even this is incomplete as the very first Israelite to live in the land of Israel was Abraham and from his founding of the start of a family, a religion, the following of Hashem and the rules he would teach to Moses all placed within Torah along with the History of a people. So the origin of the Israelite People and the Jewish religion begins with our Patriarchs and Matriarchs named Abraham, Izaak, and Jacob along with Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel. This makes this birthday approximately the four-thousand-seventeenth birthday as Abraham was estimated to have arrived in Canaan somewhere around 2000 BCE. The timeline above places Abraham appearance to be 2166 BCE, which makes our final approximation four-thousand-one-hundred-eighty-three years old, so have a happy, healthy and wonderful 4183rd birthday Nation of Israel. As we are writing this on Independence Day afternoon, we need to go to a picnic because in Israel we celebrate Independence Day much as it is everywhere, we go to morning religious services and a Bar-B-Q in the afternoon where there is lots of Kosher meat and no ice cream, it’s that meat and milk thing, so, good-bye for now.

Why Must Israel and Jerusalem Remain One?

 

The reasons are so basic and simple that they can be and often are expressed with singular thoughts with simple and easily understood words representing basic human understanding. Israel is the body, Jerusalem its heart. Jerusalem is the pearl and Israel its oyster. Israel is the glistening sands, Jerusalem the shining jewel completing the picture. Put in words of nationhood, Israel is the Jewish State and Jerusalem their longing and capital city. There are many prayers that when spoken outside of Jerusalem during the pilgrimage celebrations which say it clearly, “Next year in Jerusalem.” Often Jerusalem is called by a slightly different pronunciation, Yerushalayim.

 

Then there is in the Bible in Tehillim – Psalms – Chapter 137 – verses referred to often by the names, “Song of Babylon” and “By the Rivers of Babylon” with the latter being the first line of the verse. Jerusalem plays a special place in these verses where they state in verses 4 through 6,

4 “How shall we sing the song of the Lord on foreign soil?”
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill].
6 May my tongue cling to my palate, if I do not remember you, if I do not bring up Jerusalem at the beginning of my joy.

Hebrew – עִברִית
דאֵיךְ נָשִׁיר אֶת שִׁיר יְהֹוָה עַל אַדְמַת נֵכָר: 4
האִם אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ יְרוּשָׁלִָם תִּשְׁכַּח יְמִינִי: 5
תִּדְבַּק לְשׁוֹנִי | לְחִכִּי אִם לֹא אֶזְכְּרֵכִי אִם לֹא אַעֲלֶה אֶת יְרוּשָׁלִַם עַל רֹאשׁ שִׂמְחָתִי: 6

The meaning is obvious, for Jews as for our Israelite brothers and sisters before us, who were exiled a second time in Babylon, as it was with the first exile in Egypt and the third exile which was the Roman dispersal which resulted with time and numerous expulsions, pogroms and other catastrophes culminating in the Shoah, where we were thrown to every corner of the globe and from which our return is in progress. Our greatest loss was our beloved Jerusalem with the Temple which was the central point in our religion as it was where the sacrifices were made and the Holy of the Holies which held the spirit of Hashem and where the High Priest would enter to make the case and receive the judgement for the entire nation every Yom Kippur.

 

Jerusalem is so much more than the Capital City of Israel, it is a necessity for Israel as are the Biblical heartlands and the Muslims know this which is what drives their demands for us to release any claim to these lands and simply hand them over and tear them from our midst. What they have not figured on is whether Hashem will allow them to do such a dastardly act and in doing so give to Hashem such an insult. Hashem will not let such an act remain standing long and the Arab Muslims who call themselves Palestinians will know their mistake on the day that Hashem chooses. Allah will not be of any assistance once Hashem decides that His lands and His Capital City are to be returned to their rightful owners by International laws far older than the Geneva Convention or anything else modern society is based. These sets of international laws were set down millennia ago and were decided before the Earth was formed as it was to be an integral part of the reason for the Earth and the eventual birth of human-kind. No mortal may challenge these laws and have such stand long. The only difficulty is what is long for Hashem has no relationship to our time-frame and can be eons or an instant; all depends on Hashem, as it has been and always will be. So, let them huff and puff but that will never be permitted to last and they will be returned to the Israelite people once they have returned and the time determined ready or necessitated, Hashem will have His will be done.

 

So the United Nations can debate, make speeches, pontificate, declare and whatever else they do in Turtle Bay, New York, New York; it is all just a puff of hot air lost on that autumn day, nothing more. We do not make that decision as it is reserved for Hashem to inform us in its proper time. When that blessed day arrives there will no longer be any doubt to Whom this planet, this world and every grain of sand from which it is fashioned belongs and Who makes every decision which has weight and real meaning, Hashem, and there is no substitute. So, go ahead and sound your fury like a thousand horns as your orchestra is barely a whisper in the realm of Hashem but the tiniest whimper crying out the Jewish love for Yerushalayim will reverberate in Heaven and will unavoidably be heard by Hashem which will start in motion the vengeance of Hashem to make straight what man has twisted, defiled and broken as Hashem restores all to its chosen path cutting through history as a geodesic through the rough-hewn stones of fate. The fate of man will always be returned to its proper place at crucial unchangeable points chosen at the time of creation by Hashem and nothing in Heaven or Earth will bend Hashem and His will as these points were set by He.

 

Meanwhile we heard a great speech we have read by Prime Minister Netanyahu (see video below), something we can always expect as his words are great but his actions do not always reflect what he promised and for good reason, Netanyahu may not be the chosen person to implant Hashem’s will on the future as the time might not yet be right and more preparations are required of man by Hashem. The words spoken by Prime Minister Netanyahu rang true but still we await the proper actions. Even the initial conquest of the lands which made up the original tribes did not proceed in a straight line and without struggle. Life and reality are always some form of struggle through which we are cut and hewn making us whatever our finished self will become and be prepared to stand before Hashem and receive our just and final judgement. That is the point where we fully understand that Hashem loves each and every one of us and we are all blessed in Hashem’s eyes. Still, now comes the difficult part for the Israeli Prime Minister and the rest of us while we make this land whole again. But once again, in plain and simple language we all understand the case for Israel was made and the sins accumulated against Hashem were partially enumerated once again as even the best mortal cannot begin to understand Hashem and His ultimate plan. But just as Hashem assisted Bibi in making the Prime Minister’s speech remarkable, Hashem will work making what many will believe was magical and completely miss the miracles within. That time is approaching fast yet we should be patient and wait the proper time, but is it not always that way? Hashem be blessed for returning many of us and raising the others as natives in their own lands. One need remember a single truth, Israel has been occupied by the Babylonians followed by the Persians followed by the Greeks followed by the Romans followed by the Caliphate followed by the Ottomans followed by the British leading finally on the mortal calendar as May 15, 1948 where the land of Israel, home to close to half of the world’s Jews and climbing. Yet we will wait the proper time which Hashem has chosen for our dreams to be realized. This is the story of the Valley of the Dry Bones from Ezekiel 37.

 

 

 

 

All of the above are meaningless if not for the will of Hashem, the singular truth in all creation. Pharaoh realized this truth even if only for a moment and Pharaoh reaped the reward for opposing Hashem, though there are those who claim that the Pharaoh had no choice in what he did as he had to be laid waste such that the nations in every corner of the world could witness the miracles and power of Hashem. Yet still men demand to play Pharaoh in this and every age opposing Hashem and believing their power even compares with the infinite power of Hashem. Hashem will make Israel whole and in the process Jerusalem becomes inseparable from that which is Israel. Even elsewhere mankind is destined to travel, Jerusalem and the Holy Temple will remain a central concept and the Jewish People will place their Holy Temple within an area designated as Jerusalem which will be where Hashem places them on the central hill which it turns out may not necessarily be the highest peak but will be the central of seven hills. It is the Temple which elevates the hill, not the hill elevating the Temple.

 

What does this mean for today? It means one has to have a fair degree of faith and the rest will work itself out and the truth will become reality. It means that anything which steals from the Israelis any of the Promised Land, and especially any part of Jerusalem, is a theft which Hashem will never countenance. The United Nations can make their decrees from the General Assembly and in time there will be a true Israeli leader who will follow Torah and the instructions of Hashem. By that date every nation which had forsaken Israel or oppressed and hated the Jews will have been dealt their just rewards for opposing the very desires of Hashem. That has never been a good idea as the justice for that transgression has almost invariably been quite harsh. Perhaps their final rewards will come from the hands of Israel as they defeat them even worse, they may very well be handing out the fury of Hashem and the final disposition. The decisions of the United Nations General Assembly are but suggestions and with Europe on the verge of falling before their Islamic surging refugee problem as these are not so much refugees as they are an Islamic foothold. By the turn of the next century Europe, with the exception of Switzerland, may all be Islamic states where the institutions which sought equality of the two genders will crushed as will gay rights and same sex couples will be arrested initially and likely sentenced to death by one or another barbaric means. Think what a Europe ruled by Imams dictating the laws and deciding the fates of millions as they retrain their lives to obey blindly and without complaint. Such a map might look like the one below showing Europe after an Islamic takeover.

 

Arab and Muslim World After the Islamization of Europe except for Switzerland and Israel in Red Both Standing Against any Islamic Assault or Tide

 

Some have questioned as to why we often do not report of the United States as standing with Israel in the conflict which is approaching much faster than many believe. The truth be told about the United States is that they may not even play any role in the coming conflict. The coming election could result in an isolationist United States at best and an ally of Islam at its worst. Hillary Clinton blindly following the path set forth by Barack Obama will cause the United States such internal strife that as a nation they would be unable to look beyond their borders. Donald Trump, on the other hand, may continue to send arms though in a far more limited manner as he rebuilds the American economic engine, that which provides the means for such activities. Trump also is stressing a stay at home and mind our own business outlook with his emphasis on introspection above seeking out their place on the world stage. Trump appears to believe that by repairing the home-front that by that process the world will also take care of those matters which need addressing. Hillary will continue the Islamization of the American society. United States educational institutional systems, both private and especially public, have by-and-large have been slowly but inexorably altering the system from an education system to a reeducation, an indoctrinating center. This in-and-of-itself would have sufficed to change the landscape of the United States somewhere down the road but these leftists want the change and they want it now. That was the secret behind Bernie Sanders campaign and near success. One should not rule out the United States sliding leftward and becoming indistinguishable from France, Britain, or worse, Greece. Whatever the final result of the Europeanizing of the United States, they would be ill-prepared to fight any sustained war as they would have insufficient funds unless they simply went all in as in World War II.

 

The coming war will be either the culmination of the long war Islam has been fighting since around 625 CE (AD) and continued through to the modern age, currently being reengaged full force by the Islamists and on the way to drafting all Islam for what they hope will be their final victory and the completed conquest of the Earth. There can only be two endings to Islam’s war; either the complete surrender and subjugation of all planet Earth or the eradication of Islam, similarly as was Nazism, rendering it to cult status equal to one of the cult churches from the late 1960s and early 1970s mostly in San Francisco or possibly Greenwich Village in New York. Islam could also repair themselves through a reformation where the new Islam is based on the Mecca Quran instead of the later verses from Medina. It was this question we addressed a few years back in our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? This article has many additional links to further information from all sides and points of view entered within the commentaries by numerous readers and others passing through reading just this article making it also a resource tool. This war on our horizon will start in Europe, particularly one of the nations bordering the southern Balkans up through Germany and Poland and ending in Scandinavia, and from there spread to North America then through to South America and then remainder of Africa and ending striking India, China, Russia and the remainder of Asia. The question which is first and foremost, will the non-Islamic world band together or will they permit each area to be sectioned out and conquered slowly but inexorably eventually leaving Islam possess them each one-by-one.

 

That is the Islamic plan, inundate Europe and subsume their democracies electing their own and when they have sufficient power, declaring each to be the newest member of the final Caliphate. After the world has been brought to kneel before Allah one nation after the other, then comes the next question, which version of Islam will be permitted and this is important as it will define who are permitted as Imams and thus the just deciders of Sharia, Quranic Law. One could hope that the fighting would then be complete and finished but we have an aching feeling that will not be the case and further divisions will come to the fore and many will result in further fighting. Islam is not a religion which can be pacified as it has always been at conflict. As Islam has a deity that is separate from Judaism and Christianity it is no wonder that it has a completely different tenor. Judaism and Christianity follow Hashem, the deity of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob while Islam follows Allah, originally the name of a pagan moon god worshipped in the Arabian Peninsula and was the deity from Abram, Ishmael and Mohammad. Articles delving further into this can be read here and here. Look up the birth of Ishmael in the Old Testament Book in Genesis – Chapter 16 where it states:

1) Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had not borne to him, and she had an Egyptian handmaid named Hagar.
2) And Sarai said to Abram, “Behold now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing; please come to my handmaid; perhaps I will be built up from her.” And Abram hearkened to Sarai’s voice.
3) So Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, at the end of ten years of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, and she gave her to Abram her husband for a wife.
4) And he came to Hagar, and she conceived, and she saw that she was pregnant, and her mistress became unimportant in her eyes.
5) And Sarai said to Abram, “May my injustice be upon you! I gave my handmaid into your bosom, and she saw that she had become pregnant, and I became unimportant in her eyes. May the Lord judge between me and you!”
6) And Abram said to Sarai, “Here is your handmaid in your hand; do to her that which is proper in your eyes.” And Sarai afflicted her, and she fled from before her.
7) And an angel of the Lord found her by a water fountain in the desert, by the fountain on the road to Shur.
8) And he said, “Hagar, Sarai’s servant, where are you coming from, and where are you going to?” And she said, “From before Sarai my mistress, I am fleeing.
9) And the angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and allow yourself to be afflicted under her hands.”
10) And the angel of the Lord said to her, “I will greatly multiply your seed, and it will not be counted for abundance.”
11) And the angel of the Lord said to her, “Behold, you will conceive and bear a son, and you shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard your affliction.
12) And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone’s hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell.”
13) And she called the name of the Lord, Who had spoken to her, “You are the God of seeing,” because she said, “Have I seen [him] here also after I have seen?”
14) Therefore the well was called Be’er Lachai Ro’i; behold it is between Kadesh and between Bered.
15) And Hagar bore a son to Abram, and Abram named his son, whom Hagar had borne, Ishmael.
16) And Abram was eighty-six years old, when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.

Note in the final line that Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. Abraham, or the rebirth of Abram into Abraham, came in the next chapter in Genesis Chapter 17 where it states:

1) And Abram was ninety-nine years old, and God appeared to Abram, and He said to him, “I am the Almighty God; walk before Me and be perfect.
2) And I will place My covenant between Me and between you, and I will multiply you very greatly.”
3) And Abram fell upon his face, and God spoke with him, saying,
4) “As for Me, behold My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of a multitude of nations.
5) And your name shall no longer be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.
6) And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings will emerge from you.
7) And I will establish My covenant between Me and between you and between your seed after you throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant, to be to you for a God and to your seed after you.
8) And I will give you and your seed after you the land of your sojournings, the entire land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, and I will be to them for a God.”

 

Note verse 5 where Abram becomes Abraham and then receives the Covenant with Hashem for Abraham and his seed after him. Ishmael received his promise of a nation under Hagar meeting with an angel and while Abram has yet to receive the Covenant so the two are completely different Covenants and never have been equal. The question remains as will the world with almost no exception become under Islam and a form of idol worship? That is a question which may see an answer sooner than many believe, and it will end after the most serious bloodletting the planet will ever come to know and that is the curse for transgressions which we will leave for each to decide the why.
