New Multiculturalism Declines Orthodox Faith


Anti-Semitism is rife throughout Europe and spreading like a wildfire throughout urban and metropolitan America. Apparently multiculturalism does not include Orthodox Jews or any other Jew who stands with Israel, their faith, the Torah and the tenets of their faith. The new multiculturalism also rejects Catholic Orthodoxy, Christian Evangelicals, religious Christians and anyone who stands with the Bible. To be completely honest, they do not much like the United States Constitution either or anything originally written on parchment. Do not even mention stuff originally carved in stone, like the Ten Commandments. Our new multicultural society has a whole new set of rules and they are quite open-minded and accepting. Their one rejection is those who refuse to be as accepting as the mainstream multiculturalists. You have to understand, it is all about their rights and the rights of all those who choose to expand the societal structures and tear down the old walls which were too restrictive for the new multiculturalists. And we beg forgiveness ahead of time for any insult one might feel or find in what follows as we are not as sensitive as society now demands.


We are now a very sensitive society and we feel for everybody and everybody has rights. The LBGTQ and who knows what other letters are to come have rights. The transgendered rights are very fluid as one can feel like anything at any point in the day and switch a few moments later, that is their right. The gays and lesbians have rights and must be permitted to have marriage as a social arrangement such as civil unions are insufficient, it must be marriage because the Biblical definition must be challenged and destroyed. The old constructs must be challenged and destroyed utterly and completely. Nothing of the old must be permitted to stand, and that includes anybody found holding on to those antiquated, obsolete and hateful standards on which Western civilization stood supreme for these past numerous centuries. Military service is out and the soldier must be reinvented and the military services are the new Petri dishes where societal changes are tested. Women in submarines, on the front lines and in every last place where only men dared tread before and if they cannot meet the requirement, then change the requirements until even the most tender woman will pass if she decides to join. The requirement for a Ranger to run eight miles twice every day of the week, are you sure it has to be eight miles, and twice a day, for real? Perhaps you meant yards for the ladies who want to have that Ranger patch upon their shoulders. As we stated, the standards of the old must be bent and broken to accept the new openness where everybody had rights, well, except the right to limit anyone else’s right to be and do whatever they please, that would be standardism, a forbidden ism.


Ism’s are another problem for the multiculturalists. They abhor the vast majority of ism’s, and for many we agree. They oppose Fascism, a wise choice, and classism, racism, sexism and other exclusive ism’s as do we. They claim that these destructive isms’s are all the children of religious belief because religious belief is what led to all the wars of history, well, Judeo-Christian beliefs led to all the wars of history. They have replaced ism’s with their defined freedoms. Fascism was replaced with social justice, classism was replaced with social justice, racism was replaced with social justice, sexism was replaced with social justice, every ill has been cured by social justice. And exactly who gets to decide what is social justice, well; everybody provided their definition is all-inclusive and free of any rejection beyond rejecting those who wish to apply standards. Standards are evil and are replaced with rights to defy standards. This is a very happy-go-lucky new world where you can be whatever you want to be without any pain, suffering, accomplishment or even proficiency. We are waiting for the last of the standards to fall, those standards which require physicians to be licensed, lawyers to pass an exam, pilots to be certified and all those other restrictive qualifications so many of the choicest professions require for people to practice these trades. How so limiting these items are. We will wait patiently as the new multiculturalists get around to breaking down these barriers to the right to choose whatever profession you feel qualified to hold each morning when you wake, or afternoon if you choose to sleep in. One might even decide to change professions at lunchtime. Oh the world will be so much freer once those requirements to practice so many professions are removed and anybody can be whatever they choose.


The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it


It is all about you, or actually the I, where I is individuals and individuals have rights, all rights, and no responsibilities. That makes the world so much more open and accepting. Open and accepting, those are the new bywords we are to live by. Don’t hate, simply accept. Follow that credo and you will be feeling on top of the world by noon today. With everyone free to be free and every I for individual gets to decide everything about their life and who or what they decide to be, what could be more liberating. So what if the new pilot of the Jumbo Jet you are flying on never flew even a paper airplane before this morning, he decided he wanted to pilot a Jumbo Jet and who are you to tell them they cannot be your pilot, remember, universal acceptance. You need surgery, well we know just the person, they decided over lunch today they wanted to be a surgeon and they will do your operation for free, just sign this release form, remember, universal acceptance. Doesn’t this make you all squishy inside with the new world without standards where anyone can be anything they want? It is just so liberating to be rid of those stuffy old standards.


Rights without responsibilities are just so darn liberating. We should have special days celebrating our new liberated world. How about an international be whatever you wish day. Never mind, that is every day in this standards free environment. Oh, wait; we do need environmental standards because all pollution is evil. We will need a standard whereby polluters are punished for destroying the Earth and injuring Gaia. We have adopted some things which we do believe in such as our actual atheistic religion because having an omnipotent and all-seeing, all-knowing Supreme Being would be just so like before. We want everything to be new. We have decided on being atheists who believe in Secular Humanism, a new ism we accept. This is a completely new faith where we follow a philosophy or life stance that embraces human reason, ethics, social justice, and philosophical naturalism while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience, and superstition as the bases of morality and decision-making.* We celebrate the human being as the highest form of life, intelligence, knowledge and atop of all things. This is a whole new philosophy and is absolutely nothing like ancient Greece. Why would we bring up Greece, especially ancient Greece? Sure they allowed all forms of sexuality and the freedom to choose whatever one felt they should be and all those other rights but they had a slave class, people who were denied full rights. We would never do that except for those social-luddites who insist on imposing those old religious standards rejecting the freedom and rights which we believe. They want to hold society back from becoming totally free with their insistence that rights come with responsibilities and that what we do matters and they believe in a Supreme Being, how so year zero. They do not deserve to be full citizens in our new reality as they would be such a bummer and bring us down from our responsibility free lives where we can be whatever we decide whenever we decide. Especially those who want to drag those ancient Judeo-Christian ‘actions have consequences’ definition of life, unacceptable, completely unacceptable.


This new secular humanism morality is based on the 1960 and 70’s “If it feels good, do it.” There were so many phrases back then. Things which still work today such as, “Life is what you make it.” Of course we look at that somewhat slanted making it more like “Life is what you want to define it to be.” This is still as the base concept, just liberated a little. The problem with the new social construct comes when you add in children. But the education system has figured out the way around having lessons restrict the children. So they are now giving them lessons in how to feel including feeling different. They educate children pre-puberty about being transgendered, gay, bisexual and all about sexual liberty in modern society. Burdening children with this almost immediately before they reach their teen years, like life itself does not mess with their minds during those years. Prepubescent children are unaware of their sexuality and teaching them about such things only serves to confuse them and lead them to believe they are transgendered or gay or lesbian or whatever unusual thoughts they may have as a result. Then their hormones and bodily changes kick in and there is no wonder so many children end up needing help, but even the help only serves to further confuse them as the modern approach is all about feelings and how no feeling need be suppressed. Schools need to teach children how to think and solve problems and not how to feel and be empathic to everyone around you and support their feelings. When your teachers teach that there is no such thing as evil or restrictive rules except that you must allow everyone to be who and what they choose to be. Then the teachers show preferences for the children with the most imaginative realities for themselves, often realities which cannot be continued into the real world. But soon these students with nothing in the way of logical problem solving will be the ones leading the Western World and deciding its fate.


These morality free and open-minded students will have minds so open that nothing is beyond imagination and since they are taught that nothing is inherently wrong, it is no wonder that they simply accept everyone as is. What is amazing is how these children are able to operate in the real world, but then many of them have proven they are unable to cope. This is the reason for “safe paces” on our college and university campuses along with therapy rooms where they can be placed in a stress proof environment with calming music, puppies and kittens to cuddle, overstuffed pillows to sit or lie upon and counselors to reinforce the concept that you are strong and you are just great as you are, even if as you are is someone unable to cope with the simplest things in life. The thing is the students are given some very strict standards they are required to follow to the letter. Their liberal, leftist teachings are to never be challenged and they are not to be required to ever accept any alternative to what they have been taught to feel. If and when a speaker has been invited to speak at their college, university, community, club, organization or even at their place of employment, this is never to be tolerated. They must be petitioned against until the invitation is withdrawn and upon failure of such the event must be prevented by any and all means necessary and should such a speaker actually make it to their event, they must then be shouted down having their speech drowned out making their words unintelligible to those who came to listen to their talk. This has become standard procedure across many college and university and now in high school and even earlier such people are booed off the stage at the insistence of the teachers. The students are also taught strict obedience to those who are more, or most, knowledgeable. Never must a disparaging word be uttered in their presence. Many colleges and universities also have added a free speech zone where any conservative or standards centric student can rant and rave about their old and now discarded as barbaric concepts to their heart’s content as no matter how loud they scream these small places are well out of the range of any to hear their protestations. They may as well invoke the Cone of Silence from the Television show Get Smart.


Cone of Silence from the Television show Get Smart


Perhaps the way forward is to actually allow everybody to choose his or her own morality. The problem is these new libertarians, self-professed as they may be, have also decided that there will be standards after all. Unsurprisingly, their standards are simply defined; it’s their way or the highway. They will not tolerate even the lightest deviance from their defined perfect world. Every form of deviance must be permitted and accepted and any attempts to live by the old standards are to be shunned and forced out of the view of the society. Judeo-Christianity may be practiced freely within your own home with the shades drawn or in your house of worship, but such is banned from the public sphere. Nobody is to be judgmental unless it is to judge any conservative stalwart as mental. Conservatism needs to be eradicated from all life, particularly political life. This has been the new standard for the Democrat Party which is why on virtually every piece of legislation proposed, they have voted in complete uniformity as if their leaders have cast their votes for them. Even if a bill would benefit their home constituency, if the Democrat hierarchy decides the bill is conservative and supportive of the old world or damaging to their craven new world order, then it must be uniformly and unanimously rejected. The same goes for the appointment of conservative jurists or even strict constructionist jurists to any national judgeship. The Democrats will reject a judge even if their decisions have been exacting to the law as they want judges whose minds are more liberated from stuffy old laws and who can find new rights and new liberties in the existing laws expanding their plurality strewn society into sectors before unimagined. Abortion on demand was one such right which was discovered in the Constitution under the Roe v. Wade which was a decision handed down by the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, considered one of the most liberal leftist courts in modern history. The consenting seven justices were Harry Blackmun, Warren Burger, William Douglas, William Brennan, Potter Stewart, Thurgood Marshall, and Lewis Powell while the dissenting two justices were Justice William Rehnquist and Justice Byron White. Six of the seven voting in favor were appointed by Republican Presidents, something to note for posterity. This was the landmark case which led to a number of additional cases where rights were discovered hidden within the laws of the land. This was also the case which opened the Supreme Court to the new social outlook for maximizing rights while removing responsibilities. This decision took away the consequences to having unprotected sexual encounters or not planning or choosing wisely in one’s sexual habits thus removing the responsibility for such restrictions on how one lived and replaced this restraining responsibility with the consequence free means for removing the consequence of sexual encounters, namely procreation.


The right to abortion has had a devastating affect on the public, particularly in Europe and Russia where the population is decreasing as abortions combined with abortifacients and birth control measures to women having two or less children with many choosing against marriage, or at least permanent marriage, and having no children to restrict their choices in life. Life is now more free but as a consequence the society which has broken into this state after a long and successful run as the top of the chain, most wealthy, technologically advanced and leading the world only to now have a swindling population even in the United States of the very peoples who had accomplished much of these fetes. Western society has reached a magic plateau which in a few more years, if things which us old school fools believe are broken are not repaired and solutions found to make our society worth preserving through required sacrifice, then the new, sacrifice free, standards open, universally accepting and judging all cultures equal will wither and soon die on the vine producing nothing and affecting nothing replaced by whatever proves to be the strongest of those remaining. Currently those appear to be Islam, Chinese Communism with a touch of Capitalism or some other unforeseen group which could prove to be the Hispanic society which will inherit the productive might of the United States. The death of Western Culture has been the conscious choice to place personal pleasure over any societal future. No standards and no limits appear to have produced its limit, the lack of progeny to carry their wonderful new lifestyle forward. The only group reproducing near, at or above replacement rate has been those who have that old time religion, imagine that.

Poland Finds Poland the Innocent Victim of Jewish Death Camps


The Polish Holocaust Law is no longer a simple signature away from law; Polish President Andrzej Duda has autographed the legislation making it the law. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has not objected giving the law his silent consent as he invited Israeli journalists so as to be allowed to explain to them how the law was righteous and the Polish completely innocent victims just as were the Jews under the Nazi occupation. What the Israeli journalists ended up witnessing were two simultaneous demonstrations urging Duda to sign the law which some compared to Germany in the 1930’s after Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass when the point of no return was crossed by the German people. The nationalist demonstration was the larger of the two and was punctuated by chants which included rants such as, “Take off (your) kippah (yarmulke in Polish), Sign the law!” “Enough Jewish lies!” “Jews try to rob Poland!” “Stop Jewish aggression in Poland!” Do any of these have a familiar sounding echo to you and remind you of previous times in numbers of places throughout history where the only difference was the name Poland changed to the nation in question? Such were the chants in Nazi Germany, Inquisition Spain, Purified France, Martin Luther’s Germany (not to pick on Germany), the Czar’s Russia, Mousseline’s Italy, Hadrian’s Rome, the Hellenists’ Greece, Pharos’ Egypt, Nebakanezzer’s Babylon, Haman’s Persia and on and on throughout history. Yes, we Jews remember these chants as they have always signaled it was time to grab your bags and get out of town as ignoring such threats has always proved foolish if not deadly.


We are more than willing to grant that many or at least some of those who supported this law are not anti-Semitic and are simply more upset with innocent Poles being tarnished by the Nazis and their horrific history. We wish to be optimistic that the main driving force of this law was to differentiate between the majority of the Polish people during World War II and their Nazi oppressors who victimized numerous Polish who fought against the Nazi presence. The problem arises when we consider the reports of such hateful rhetoric by the majority of the demonstrators and the seeming backing for this law seemingly arising from the anti-Semites. Let us state right up front that we do not believe that the average polish person is an anti-Semite or that any more than a minority hold anti-Semitic beliefs. Where the frightening truth invades our hopes was when referencing the Anti-Defamation League Global Anti-Semitism Survey shows some disturbing numbers for Poland. Their 2015 survey of Poland, the last time a full survey was conducted, shows that Poland has a population of approximately thirty-one-million and of those approximately eleven million hold anti-Semitic feelings which is thirty-seven percent. The survey has a breakdown by gender, age, and the percentages in answers to the survey questions themselves. The highest response was sixty-one percent agreement on the question “Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust.” At the other end, a mere fourteen percent responded agreement with the statement, “Jews are responsible for most of the world’s wars.” The high agreement with the first kind of explains partly the reactions and force behind the new law.


The Polish Holocaust Law outlaws blaming Poland as a nation for Holocaust crimes committed by Nazi Germany. This includes stating that such places as Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor, Majdanek, Belzec and Chelmno as well as numerous camps built in Poland so that the prisoners could be worked to death out of the public eye; this policy was called Vernichtung durch Arbeit (annihilation through work), and large numbers of non-Jewish Poles were held in these camps which is one of the facts being pressed during the discussions over the Polish Holocaust Law (see map below). No longer may anyone refer to these camps as being Polish without facing fines and possible imprisonment. Exchanges by two Polish authors on a TV broadcast dealing with the new law were jesting when it was stated, “Jewish death camps” followed by the mocking question asking, “who actually did run the crematoria?” Even presumably joking, such language is beyond the pale. Once these phrases were aired on Poland Television, they were immediately picked up by numerous others, anti-Semites and others who simply believed that these were perfectly harmless jokes as they were permitted to be televised which give things an air of respectability. At the aforementioned nationalist rally, some of the speakers stated, “So my daughter would need to learn in her school that Poles killed Jews in Jedwabne, is not it scandalous?! Jedwabne lies, that baloney!” and “It all is about money. Jews would like to rob us of everything what we has build here after 1945.” and “Those who came here now under the red flags and in Israel’s interest, to attack Polish patriots.” These comments are counter to the records in history. Jedwabne was the location where three-hundred Jewish villagers burned alive by a group of their neighbors in Poland after gathering them in a barn for a meeting in 1941 after the war. These were former residents of Jedwabne who had survived the camps and ghettos and other efforts of the Nazis. Making matters even more serious, Jedwabne was just one as was Kielce Pogrom on July 4, 1946 where over twenty Jews were murdered by a mob which included many officials which became obvious when authorities indicted commander of the Kielce Office of the Security Service, Major Wladyslaw Sobczynski, and the Chief of Police, Colonel Wiktor Kuznicki, as well as his deputy, Major Kazimierz Gwiazdowicz; of the three, only Kuznicki received a one year sentence, while the other two were acquitted. Further information can be found about the Polish cities of Bial, Kielce, Krakow, Lublin, Lodz, Rzeszow and Warsaw in the PDF report “Patterns Of Anti-Jewish Violence In Poland, 1944-1946” by David Engel.


German Exterminations and Work Concentration Camps Located in Poland

German Exterminations and Work Concentration Camps Located in Poland


This law will also make references to these incidents as Polish illegal as the law will be enforced as a means of relegating all of Polish violence against the Jews forbidden speech. Everyone who has ever pointed to the Concentration Camps being in Poland knew and meant that these were built at the insistence of the Nazis, run by the Nazis, and the murdering was committed largely by the Nazis and the Polish were also victims of the war having had their nation invaded from both ends, one by the Nazis and the other by the Communists. This bred a great hatred of both the Nazis and the Communists in the Polish people, something which continued after World War II when Poland came under Communist occupation and rule. The catch is that there were a fair number who blamed the Jews for the Communist takeover of Poland after the war. By this law, making any reference to the location as an identifying characteristic of any of the Nazi Ghettos, Concentrations Camps and Murder Camps will be punishable by fines and even imprisonment. By fiat, the Polish government has made all the locations on the above map located in some alternate universe in a place called “Not Poland” and in this universe; it is evil to claim otherwise. This law applies to all whether polish or visitor. This has already cost Poland the tourism where Israeli high school students were brought to Poland and were given classes and lectures about the horrors of the Holocaust. As of now, references to the Holocaust as happening in these camps on Polish ground would place the teachers in Polish prison. These trips have already been suspended and are unlikely to ever be resumed. One can also bet that a great number of Jews worldwide will now avoid Poland believing it to be anti-Semitic or, at the very least, unwelcoming to Jews. The avoiding of Poland will be strongest amongst the Jews who lost their families in the camps, specifically the camps in Poland.


There is another application of this law which might come to be used in a political manner. The Polish might decide to also apply the law to any political individual who mentions in some way the relationship between Poland and the locations of the Exterminations and Work Concentration Camps and the Ghettos. Such references would more likely be made by Israeli politicians thus should an anti-Israel, anti-Zionist or especially an anti-Semitic leader come to power in Poland, they might attempt to use this law against Israeli politicians who made mention of the camps being located in Poland, and especially if they implied Polish participation in the construction or having turned over Jews to the Nazis and other forms of cooperation. We in Israel are very aware of those in Poland who bravely fought the Nazis and the Righteous Amongst the Nations from Poland who harbored and saved Jewish lives, but we also have painful reminders of those Polish who aided the Nazis in their efforts. Such a use of the law to indict foreigners under this law should they ever step within the borders of Poland will surely result in many deciding that a visit to Poland under any circumstance to unfavorably risky. This law will definitely drive a wedge between Poland and Israel if not others as well. If this law is ever applied to one who referenced Poland and the location of the Nazi camps and the treatment of the Jews, then Poland will become a place which many will find too dangerous to visit. This law will bring Poland only evil and bad times will lay ahead. The politicians who passed this law and President Andrzej Duda along with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will rue their complicity in this law as time passes. This is a dark day for Poland and does nothing to change the facts about the Concentration Camps and the Ghettos forced upon them by the Nazis. Still, there did exist some degree of Polish cooperation with the Nazi occupiers and that cannot be altered by or erased by or otherwise made different or to somehow disappear by passing a law making their mention illegal in Poland. If anything, this law reminds us of an old saying, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” which comes from Hamlet by Willian Shakespeare. In this case, we would have to say, The Poles doth protest too much, methinks.

It’s Nothing Personal, We Just Hate You


Really, we have nothing against you personally, well, unless you are one of those holy religious types, then yes we do. You see it is just simply by having your kind still around despite all we have attempted to do over the years, well, it’s just not natural. And if it is not natural, then it must be supernatural, and you know what that means. That’s right, it means that your claims about Hashem just might ring true and that is something which bothers us greatly. You see, if what you claim is true and there really is a Supreme Being, Hashem, as you call Him, then the Ten Commandments are valid and truly Divinely given and that scroll of yours, the Torah, is also true and Divinely given. That means that there really exists a standard by which we are supposed to live our lives and that just takes the fun out of life. Add to that the fact that our every step and misstep is watched and kept a record of by which we will be judged, where’s the fun left after that? You all simply demand too much of the rest of us and those of you in Israel just make it all that much worse. Let us explain.


You see when you were dispersed throughout our worlds; we could do with you and to you what we pleased because you lacked the will and the numbers to fight back. We could murder you and nothing struck us from out of the heavens, no lightning bolts, no burning hail, nothing. We could steal all your wealth, burn your homes and chase you out of our countries and everything continued without you. We could charge you an extra tax, the Jizyah, force you to walk in the gutter and not contaminate our sidewalks, make you hunch down keeping your heads lower than even our shortest person and deny you any legal rights such that murdering you was no longer a crime. We were free to do anything because our religions which required little of us had replaced yours as the Chosen People; we became the Chosen Ones and you became the cursed, the spawn of Satan. But now you have returned to your ancestral homelands just as prophesized and, according to scholars, you came back exactly as prophesized over two millennia ago. How can we interpret such miracles other than divinely set in stone and executed just as promised by Hashem.


As was set out in a recent post, “Ezekiel said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from Hashem. This was to become the Babylonian exile. The Persians under Cyrus the Great defeated the Babylonians and freed their Jewish captives about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon. This left 360 years which the Jews would require a second exile to fulfill as one must pay Hashem when one strays. In Leviticus 26:18, Leviticus 26:21, Leviticus 26:24 and Leviticus 26:28 the Torah spells things out quite clearly, should the Jews not fully repent their sins they would be punished increased by a factor of seven. Since most of the Jews freed from Babylon decided to live in the Persian society and adopted pagan ways, which is not exactly repenting, their remaining 360 years were multiplied by seven meaning their time in the Diaspora or under foreign occupation became 2,520 years on the original lunar Jewish calendar which translates to 2,484 years. Count from 536 BCE forward 2,484 years and you arrive at 1948.”


Further prophesies foretold of the events under which the Jewish State would return. One of the most miraculous was from Isaiah 66:7-8 where it states, “Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.” Israel did come into being in a single day declared a nation holding her Biblical borders from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, some parts of which were lost yet she survived every attempt to dislodge the Jewish People to this day. That too was the prophesy from Ezekiel 37:1-14 telling of the restoration of the Jewish People using the parable of the Valley of Dry Bones. The prophesy tells of the ingathering of the Jewish People being brought from the four corners and renewed. The prophesy also speaks of taking tribes of Israel (Joseph) and the tribe of Judah and make them one foretelling that the House of Israel will be a united house once more as it is. The verse goes on to say that being observant and true to the Mitzvahs, the Commandments, will be made easy for the people in Israel, something we can attest to as this has been our case as religion has come upon our souls and persons and following the Commandments of Torah have been placed within reach.


But these are the exact things which have so frightened so many and within their hearts, a great discomfort lay and for this, they blame the Jews. Blaming the Jews for any discomfort, disease, strife or difficulty had become so second nature that it became second nature, as natural to the non-Jew as breathing. The fact that the Jewish People now have their ancestral lands almost completely returned unto them and they posses a military which is effective so above its level of fighters and equipment that it is sobering and difficult to explain without invoking Hashem. This too has set the gentile, both Christian and Muslim on edge, for if the Jews remain the Chosen People, then what does this do to their claims of replacement of the Jewish People? This sets many on edge, as they must question what this will mean to their faith. But there is a group who are even more perturbed, the secularists and especially the leftist secularists. These individuals and as a group, have replaced the Divine with the mundane, with the government, as the entity which gives life and sustenance to the people. The fact that Hebrew prophesies are being visualized and what was foretold two-thousand to two-thousand-seven-hundred years back have come to pass and not only come to pass but have played out exactly as foretold. They try and explain these phenomena with the directives of the League of Nations and the United Nations but they know that these events come from a far different source. The fact of such frightens them and is shaking the very core of their beliefs. The saddest part is that many of these secularists claim they are practicing Jews but have replaced Torah with leftist propaganda and Marxist principles. These Jews will be lost and never will return without even greater miracles, and we would not rule such out.


Still, what is the purpose of the growing anti-Semitism, the growing hatred shown the Jews? This could be the mechanism by which the remnants of Jews will be forced from Europe just as anti-Semitism along with anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism caused the majority of Arab nations to purge their societies of the Jews forcing them into exile. Most of these near one-million Jews resettled in Israel with small percentages making their way to France, Britain, and the United States, most often only if they had relatives who would sponsor them. Lacking such relatives, the vast majorities are now living in Israel and unlike the Arab refugees, these Jews were welcomed and somehow were managed to be interwoven into Israel despite any inconvenience, cost or other difficulties. This could be what will play out with time in Europe as we can already see areas where no Jew dare tread for fear of life within many major European cities. Such areas are more wide spread than are the Muslim communities as things are reaching the point where many Jews if religious must either hide their religiousness when leaving Jewish neighborhoods and traveling into the general public if they wish to avoid conflict.


But there is far more resulting from the reestablishment of Israel. Many Europeans, Islamists and, to a lesser extent currently, Americans are raising the specter of anti-Semitism once again. Large sectors of this is well disguised and those coming to hate the Jews claim that it is not the Jews they are against, it is the occupation of the Palestinians. They are not anti-Semitic or even really anti-Israel or anti-Zionist, they are anti-settlers, anti-occupation and pro-Palestinian Arab. They will say that all they want is for the Palestinian Arabs to be given their fair share and the small amounts which they claim. If pressed they will claim that all they desire is for the Palestinian Arabs to be granted their state in 22% of the land. They will often, out of ignorance, add just the West Bank and Gaza. The 22% which Mahmoud Abbas demands is the remaining 22% of the British Mandate which is everything which is not Jordan. He states that the British Mandate must be seen as a whole and complete entity and that the Palestinians are due the 22% of the Mandate west of the Jordan River. This leaves no Israel. Many knowingly agree with this demand realizing it would destroy Israel, something they support. They know that if Israel is destroyed, then there exists no Divine Entity and thus their secular beliefs are validated. This would permit them to return to their lives, as they desire to live them, without any overreaching moral code.


The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments


They desire to live as people lived before the Ten Commandments were handed down at Mount Sinai. They desire to live as did the Greeks, Romans, Persians and those ancient idolatrous religions with their pleasure driven societies. The secularists are opposed to the Jews and also to the Christians who they see as simply a different form of Jewish morality. This is evident in the normalization of homosexual relations to the point beyond where even the Greeks and Romans went, considering same-sex marriages. The Greeks and Romans still married women even if just to procreate and had their young boys for lovers. This was what was stated in all too many schoolbooks even in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The legalization of abortion and the permitting such up until the point of birth with some pro-choice students thinking it’ is morally acceptable to kill a child after birth up to the age of five. Many blame these ideal on the reading of modern ethicist falling after their influences with the likes of Peter Singer as part of required reading in many college courses. How such thoughts are much different from the child sacrifices as were offered to Baal by the Babylonians, another of the wonderful societies from antiquity. Such beliefs run so contrary to the teachings in the Torah and throughout the Bible that they only cause more antipathy towards the Jews as the originators of religious morality. The society, in many aspects, just wish to return to some slightly more civilized form of barbarity where personal pleasure and the pursuit of self-gratification are the only real concerns and let the others take care of themselves. The secularist passes off all requirements to care for the indigent, the elderly, the disabled to the government such that they just pay taxes and otherwise need not care about the plights of their brothers and sisters.

Ancient Child Sacrificial Ceremony Giving of the First Born or Virgin Child to Ba’al so as to Appease the Wrathful Idol


Genesis told mankind that yes indeed, we are our brother’s keeper, and it did not wait that far into the book before making that very point. It was Genesis Chapter 4:9 where it states, “And the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” And he said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”” Hashem goes on to impress that we are indeed responsible for our brethren, all of them, woman, man, child, any who are distressed are our responsibility. That is a great responsibility which takes great effort; it is far more fun to entertain ourselves with distractions. This too is another chapter for the hatred of the Jews and their return to their ancestral homelands making the existence of the Divine too obvious to ignore. Defeat Israel and the prophesies are broken and thus there is no Divine Entity over all creation. Physics, Chemistry, Cosmology, Mathematics and the rest of the hard sciences prove how everything came into being and they do not find anything miraculous about the universe, do they? Well, perhaps science has mathematically proven the existence of the Divine, of Hashem. For the record, Dr. Gödel put it through his equations:

Ax. 1 {P(φ)∧◻∀x[φ(x)→ψ(x)]} →P(ψ)
Ax. 2 P(¬φ)↔¬P(φ)Th. 1.P(φ)→◊∃x[φ(x)]Df. 1.G(x)⟺∀φ[P(φ)→φ(x)]
Ax. 3 P(G)Th. 2.◊∃xG(x)Df. 2.φ ess x⟺φ(x)∧∀ψ{ψ(x)→◻∀y[φ(y)→ψ(y)]}
Ax. 4 P(φ)→◻P(φ)Th. 3.G(x)→G ess xDf. 3.E(x)⟺∀φ[φ ess x→◻∃yφ(y)]
Ax. 5 P(E)Th. 4.◻∃xG(x)”

Clear-cut as it can be and so easily and obviously, honest, we have no clue what Dr. Gödel was even trying to postulate, let alone know what this means, but it just might make more sense to someone else. For us, the return of the Jewish People and the continued existence of Israel despite all the things throughout the world working to destroy her and the Torah are all we require to believe and worship the Divine, to pray and hope that Hashem will treat us with kindness and a forgiving nature. Meanwhile, even should the entirety of the rest of the world stand against Israel, as long as we have Hashem and the blessings which accompany the country of Israel as a result, we will have little cause to worry. It is only if we have transgressed and acted with willful sinfulness that our need for concern should be awakened. Fortunately, Hashem usually sends at least one strongly felt and impossible to ignore warning, somewhat like a divine shot across the bow like say a large meteor striking within Israel or the Earth opening up and swallowing an entire neighborhood, something minor like such. A kind of repent now message from on high. Otherwise, we may just be going to do fine and live here for what will be nearly an eternity, if not an actual eternity.
