Religious Zionism is Alive and Flourishing

 

Religious Zionism was claimed to be on its death bed according to Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz. His article is somewhat disingenuous as he makes it sound like he was born and still resides in Eretz Yisroel with his being younger man living in Efrat and having joined his brothers and sisters to create a human chain stretching from Jerusalem to Gaza. It is not until late in the article he mentions that he has left Eretz Yisroel and now is an Open Orthodox Rabbi living in the United States. His claims about the problems with the Religious Zionists in Eretz Yisroel are actually easily understood by any Olim who resided in the United States and because of their intense Zionism came to Eretz Yisroel to live. He has adapted to his new home and this has caused him to have clouded vision. Please allow us to explain using our experiences after having come here to our little nest in Eretz Yisroel. It is a story about having gone in the opposite direction from Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz.

 

The first confession we need to explain is that despite being Zionist, we had little connection to Judaism despite having been born into a Jewish home. This home went from Orthodox to Reform Judaism before we had reached Bar Mitzvah age. Our connection to Judaism was restarted due to a death in the family. Still, our return was to a Conservative Synagogue as that Synagogue’s Rabbi was a better fit from the Reform Synagogue. The odd thing is the Conservative Synagogue services were very similar to the Reform we knew in our teens. It was coming to Eretz Yisroel where we were actually introduced to Orthodox, a Traditional Sephardi Orthodox Synagogue. This Synagogue has a mix of every form of Judaism in the congregants from Ashkenazim to Sephardim to Jews from India and throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and North America with the main numbers from Romania. Needless to say, we found a flourishing and very colorful mix of Judaism and Jews and we are all friends and as a family. We still have much to learn about Judaism and Torah and the other major writings from the Rabbis over the ages. This experience has strengthened our Zionism and we have joined a political party which supports religious Zionism and every form of Zionism is practiced by the party members, again a mixture of every kind of Jew from every corner of the globe. For one of us it feels so much like home as their mother was an Iraqi Jew raised in Bombay, India and father was a British Jew from London, England with Ukrainian and Prussian ancestry. Yes, we have a rich mixture there as well.

 

May the Temple be Rebuilt Speedily in Our Days

May the Temple be Rebuilt Speedily in Our Days

 

Where our making Aliyah was due solely to Zionism, the religious part of our beliefs has truly begun since arriving in Eretz Yisroel. Can we yet claim to be Religious Zionists, well, probably not yet. Are we working in that direction, yes. But Rabbi Yanklowitz makes complaints with which we are very familiar. His complaints are purely leftist American centric complaints. His complaints center around the central tenets of the far left of the Democrat Party. This is to be expected from one who practices Open Orthodoxy which is actually another way of saying Reform Judaism, as their beliefs are very much similar. These Jews follow the socialist wealth redistribution and the minority rights over everybody else’s rights. They believe that borders are not real lines between nations and sacred as they want anybody crossing any border to have full rights in their new nation. This was exemplified by his problem with Israel’s desire to deport the illegal immigrants from Africa who only came to Israel for economic reasons. But as Israel is a wealthy nation, Rabbi Yanklowitz believes that anyone who arrives from a poor nation has an economic right to the better life in the wealthier country no matter the problems and threats to their presumed new nation they may pose. The only thing we would like to tell the good Rabbi is, if you desire the leftist utopia which you envision and likely find the United States currently lacking with President Trump, perhaps you would be best to live in a real socialist utopia like Cuba, Venezuela or North Korea.

 

But you probably are too attached to your wealthy life in the United States where you can criticize Israel of not being that socialist utopia you envision will ultimately save the world. We know the crime Israel has committed is choosing to move from its socialist roots to a capitalist economic model and make it work. Let us set your mind at rest on one subject, the people of Israel give more to the needy than can be measured as most of this assistance is given by one Israeli to another without any need for the government to enact welfare and other forced charity. The charity in Israel is beyond measure because there is no need for the government to take from one Israeli and give to another because the Israelis are perfectly capable of performing this deed on their own. Until you decide to leave your comfortable palaces in the United States, and we realize here in Israel our homes are necessarily smaller and we adapted, and return to Eretz Yisroel, then work to make the United States that perfect land as you have stated that the Diaspora should be the great place for the Jewish People. We disagree and we further promise not to tell the United States how to run their business and you can promise not to attempt to foist your politics upon us. And what we realize from your other writings is that you do not view the Temple as a positive thing while we see the building of the Third Temple as probably the greatest event we have yet to undertake. As our text translates in our morning prayers, “May it be the will before you, Hashem, our G0d and the G0d of our forefathers, that rebuilt shall the Holy Temple be speedily in our days.” We would like to thankyou for your impatience.

Are the World’s Jews About to Come Out of the Desert?

 

There are some interesting numbers concerning the Jewish People over their history. Their time in Egypt supposedly was four-hundred years. These years in which them served as bonded workers building the Pharos’s city, left them unable to act as a people or serve in a military capacity. This resulted in their spending forty years in the desert wandering from camp site to camp site until the generations of bonded workers had mostly died off or were too old to be expected to fight, they had become the hangers on. The youth who came out of Egypt did largely have the ability to fight so were allowed to enter the lands which are Israel. With this math behind us, forty years in the desert to remove four-hundred years outside being responsible for protecting themselves, let us move onward.

 

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. One can only imagine how long it will take to bring the Jews from their over two millennial exile to having their faith restored in themselves as a people? What is interesting is the difference we have noted in the Jews who have returned from many corners of the globe living here in our little berg in Israel to the majority of Jews who have thusfar remained in the Diaspora. The differences are stark.

 

We have spoken about how the majority of people in the synagogue we belonged to in the United States were confounded when we informed them we were on our way to live in Israel. They could not understand why we would leave what they viewed as the promised land to go to the ravaged lands in the Middle East, of all places. They cried about leaving the safety of living in the leading nation in the world to live in an undeveloped land in the world’s hellhole. These were the same Jews who recoiled at the thought that one of their fellow members had served in the Army, even if it was the United States Army, because Jews did not serve in the military. They were equally if not more deplored at the news that we had firearms, numerous firearms, and we enjoyed shooting them at targets. Perhaps it was better not to talk about hunting season as even had we denied ever having shot any animals, they had already considered our morality shot, as were our targets. And that we voted for conservative politicians and refused to denounce Netanyahu for disagreeing with President Obama on Iran, well, what can we add.

 

One of our staff has resided all across the United States and can attest that this final congregation was pretty much indicative of the vast majority of Jews which they met. One thing, being the exception was something a politically conservative Jew outside of Orthodox communities was an outlier and treated as an outcast. Israel is slowly becoming more Zionistic and conservative, though many of our friends might take exception. With time, Israel is very likely to become more religious, and our same friends might disagree, but that is our best prediction. What is nice is predictions cannot be judged as valid or invalid until we reach the future. What could make a difference in the balance would be if large percentages of European and North American Jews make Aliya, bring their liberal politics with them, and refuse to alter their opinions to meet new realities. Then, many may not see any new realities and remain entrenched in their political bubble. That could be detrimental for the future of Israel as it already took Israel twenty years to come to the realization that the Arabs do not desire an actual state for their Palestinian brothers, they just want Israel destroyed and the Palestinian Arabs are the bludgeon they plan on using for that purpose and they will forget them should they ever succeed. Fear is that should large numbers of Diaspora Jews come to Israel because they are forced from their homes or feel a changing societal structure where they are no longer safe and secure, that might work to Israel’s detriment and it might just be the wakeup call needed to bring them to realize the world is not anywhere near the utopian dream they had imagined. Dreams are a difficult thing to give up upon, though sometimes reality has its way of forcing people to admit new realities and with it, make what would otherwise be drastic changes to their mindset.

 

Where is this leading, well, to the old discussion of what is one Jewish life worth? Through far too much of the histories of the two main Jewish societies, the one throughout Europe and the one spread across MENA* Muslim lands, a Jewish life often was taken without penalty. Under Sharia, a Jew was worth half that of a Muslim and often even less and a Jewish life could be taken by a Muslim for the most minimal of reasons without question. In Europe, often when there was some calamity, be it from natural causes, financial difficulty or any other cause, the Jews were often found to have been the cause and they were dispossessed of their wealth, if they were fortunate, or murdered often after torture and cruelty all but unimaginable in much of the modern world. Both lines of Jews had their golden ages when the Jews were free to study, invent, discover and make strides for the human race. These ages grew slowly and all too often ended quite abruptly and violently. Then there were the fringes where Islam and Christianity met. The two areas we will talk of are the Holy Lands in general and Jerusalem specifically for one and Spain for the other. Spain is the easiest example ever as when the Muslim conquests reached Spain, their initial plunge left Christian and Jew often fleeing their homes leaving much behind and those who remained often were put to the sword or dispossessed of their wealth and permitted to live in service of their conquerors. After a period, Spain had its initial golden age where all three religions lived with Jews residing in Christian and Muslim areas and enjoying the peace and security provided them. Then things changed when King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella decided that Spain would be a purely Christian nation and thus began the Spanish Inquisition. The initial and main target was to be the Muslims who were driven back across the Gibraltar Straights into Northern Africa and those captured were forced to endure torture and often death and if fortunate simply offered the choice of conversion or death. In some cases, they were executed shortly after their conversion for not having been sincere. The Jews fled with the Muslims, even if they had resided in Christian areas, as they were also being forced to convert or die if fortunate while others were simply tortured and then executed. These conversions led to a group of Jews known as Marranos who took on the vows for Catholicism but continued to practice their Judaism in secret evading the oversight of the Inquisition who at the slightest suspicion would raid former Jewish homes looking for signs of the illegal worship. These raids were also used to steal items containing precious metals, gems or simply stealing their money.

 

The other area where the two religions face one another was over the Holy Lands and Jerusalem. We list Jerusalem separately because of its importance to both religions, to the Christians because of Jesus’s life and death at the hands of the Romans with complicity of the Roman approved Jewish leadership in the Second Temple. The Jews were the religion between the waring parties and as they swept through an area; the Jews were often executed for virtually any reason. They were accused and convicted of spying for the other side, aiding and abetting the other side and even of taking up arms against whichever side was under attack. In Jerusalem, things were more severe and strict as whichever side controlled Jerusalem, their efforts to convert or sometimes eliminate all those not following their religion in a purification of the Holy City. Jerusalem changed hands numerous times during the Crusades and each time the Jews were to be counted amongst the losers. Christians swept in and Muslim and Jews were endangered and Muslims sweep in and Christians and Jews were endangered. There were brief periods when Jerusalem was not in danger of being attacked and all three religions were permitted relative freedoms though the ruling religion could change those conditions on a whim or suspicions of things more dire. Still, it must be noted that Jerusalem was a religious prize and not a political one as it was never named as the capital of any state, it was simply Jerusalem, holy to Christians as the place where Jesus preached and was crucified and to the Muslims because it was holy to Christians and Jews it represented their superiority over the other religions.

 

Burning Israel Star of David

 

The idea that a Jewish life is next to worthless has changed, at least in Israel and much of the developed world. Jews are no longer murdered by the actions of the state in most of the world and in places where being a Jew and practicing Judaism is illegal or almost extinct, such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, Judaism is treated almost as a museum piece, a curious oddity. The Daily Wire has a more extensive list which we chose not to use. Still, much of the Arab Muslim world and a few additional Muslim nations refuse entry to Israelis and some to any who claim to be Jewish. This and their having expelled the largest majority of their Jews with only the oldest remaining and thus their Jewish population is either not having children or are mostly marrying outside the religion and bringing the children up as their spouse’s religion, as allowing them to continue as Jews would make their lives far more difficult. North Korea is rumored to exclude Jews from entry except on diplomatic passport and has no surviving Jews within their population. In Europe, they are finding that protecting Jewish life can become expensive and burdensome. This is why, with few exceptions, protection of Jewish institutions is taken only after an attack on one and then only for a few weeks until the issue dies off and is not covered in the news and needing to show police guarding a synagogue or other Jewish institution is no longer necessary. France is a notable exception as they have stationed active duty military to guard Jewish schools, day care facilities, synagogues and even some kosher markets as promised by the former Prime Minister and the Parliament. We can only wonder how long that will last, probably until the next election when a more leftist government is elected. In the United States, the Jews are treated as equal to every other citizen, granted the same rights, have the same privileges, free to work or reside where they please, and are protected against any discrimination. Still, there is a growing anti-Semitism in the United States, and if you were to ask, most people would claim it was groups like the neo-Nazis, the KKK and other “right wing” haters (Nazis of any stripe are still socialist which is a leftist ideology). The problem is, unnoticed by many, the growing anti-Semitism on the left. They claim they are simply pro-Palestinian and are fighting against racism when in reality they are anti-Semitic or at least anti-Israel, which is much the same. These people did not protest when the Syrian government shelled their largest Palestinian refugee camp for three days straight and then bombed it with barrel bombs. That was Arab on Arab hate and not the kind of anti-Palestinian action about which they care. When Kuwait expelled three-hundred-thousand Palestinian workers after the First Gulf War, as Arafat supported Saddam Hussein, there was no cry from the pro-Palestinian forces, that was completely understandable and not at all like Israel when they shoot a Palestinian simply for brandishing a knife; well, brandishing and using to stab and slash Israelis at a bus stop or other gathering place. Israel has placed a high price on a Jewish life and has proven they will make war against those threatening Jewish lives. Israel has proven the value of Jewish life and all life by protecting their citizens with the most advanced defensive anti-projectile defense in the world, Iron Dome. Israel has developed and deployed a three and soon to be four-layered anti-ballistic missile and other projectiles defensive set of systems at great cost. Israel will defend Jewish lives, and all Israeli lives to the ends of the Earth which was proven with the rescue at Entebbe, the reason many Israelis celebrate July 4th as another miracle. The rescue was pulled off on July 4, 1976, with Operation Thunderbolt (video documentary below). Israel and the IDF protects innocent lives to the best of their ability. This is written into their “Code of Arms” the same as it is in most modern armies. Israel has made Jewish lives and all Israeli’s lives valuable and has even made efforts to spare civilian casualties and thus save non-combatant civilian Palestinian lives.

 

 
As far as the future for Jewish lives, we foresee a critical point in time when virtually all Jews remaining in the world will reside within Israel. This is due to interfaith marriage being unbelievably high for non-Orthodox Jews in the United States and Europe. This means after one or at most two or three generations of interfaith marriage, the children will not be raised Jewish. They will have completely assimilated into the Christian population or the secular population having no active religion. This will mean that Israel will be the guarantor of the future of the Jews and not the United States, as many living in that great nation believe. They do not yet see the shrinking numbers in the synagogues as they themselves barely ever join in services and when they do on major holidays, everyone is there and things look wonderful, they are not. Most non-Orthodox, and that is whom we are discussing, do not go to daily services and most synagogues do not offer daily services. Some will offer a once a week service in an evening, often Wednesday, for those requiring Mourner’s Kaddish. Almost none offer morning and evening services, the three services of traditions. Even on Shabbat morning, Saturday morning, most synagogues have some degree of difficulty having a Minyan, ten males over the age of thirteen, and presumably cannot perform parts of the service including reading from the Torah. It is sad but that is where the slow fall away from the Jewish religion has reached. The same has occurred for many Christian sects but the Evangelical Christians appear to be holding better than most of the remainder but the Jews do not have the sheer numbers to afford to lose so many brothers and sisters to assimilation. Europe has seen its Jewish population continue to drop after World War II as living in Europe, as a practicing Jew, has become life threatening in some locations such as Malmo, Sweden and other major European cities. France has seen a virtual exodus with her Jews heading for the United States, Canada and Israel predominantly. These are hard times for the Jewish faith outside Israel so it will fall to Israel to set a high price for the life of a Jew and to protect the faith as the return has begun and what will follow will be determined by prophesy, Torah and the efforts of men and women great and small.

 

Star of David Ornate

 

The Jewish People are coming out of their years in the desert as they have proven they have the will to fight and make their lives count for something. Israel has taught her children well the value of a human life and the particular value of a Jewish life. They have internalized the lessons from the Diaspora and know that they must make the price of a Jewish life prohibitively high and see all life within Israel as equal in value. They learned that Judaism is not just a religion but also a family and as such, we must love each other as family which often means being a little more sensitive and understanding of one another’s shortcomings. We have hopefully learned that to be Jewish is a way of life and a way of living which is guided by Torah and the Mitzvot. True, there are a good number of secular Jews and sects of Orthodox Jews and each of these extremes have difficulty at times with the remainder, but these are problems that time will slowly erase. A Jewish life is not more valuable than any human life, but it does have something special that cannot be denied. Some proverbial stories tell of a king asking one of their advisors, often a Jewish advisor, to prove the existence of Hashem, and the answer has always been “the Jews.” The fact we are talking about the future for the Jewish People is partial proof of this miracle. The biggest problem for Judaism today is the final recognition that as Jews we belong as one family and thus acceptance of differences, while required, must be combined with the understanding that no one sect of our family is any different than any other and all must toil together if we are to make Israel function and reduce friction. We all, as Jews, have traversed difficulties to reach this time in Israel and no one group has any privilege or is owed special compensation over any other group in our family. Until we realize that we all need the soldiers, we all need the Torah scholars, we all need the scientists, we all need every last Jew because we must be special to one another if we ever expect the world to see us as special. When we are attacking one another, the world sees weakness and will use the very same arguments we throw at one another to lessen the value of every Jew making ridding themselves of their Jews acceptable, and we have all seen how that ends. We lost the Second Temple to gossip and interfamilial hatred, we must not lose Israel again for that or any other reason, as this will be our last chance to get things right. The mere existence of the Jews after all the persecutions and other blights which have befallen them above all others and they persist and retain their ability to produce. This was one of the items which appeared to have been noticed by many throughout history, as seen in this video with which we will close.

What the United Nations Vote on Jerusalem Means

 

The United Nations General Assembly’s “Status of Jerusalem” resolution denouncing the United States announcement which carried by a vote of 128–9 with 35 abstentions and 21 absenting themselves from the vote simply showed exactly what the Jewish Prophets prognosticated over two millennia past. They predicted a world turned almost exclusively contrary to the Jews and Jerusalem, the holiest of cities in Israel and continue to throw themselves against the Jewish unbreakable love and attachment with Jerusalem only to be torn and cut as if throwing themselves against a rock-face. The Arab dominated United Nations General Assembly will never find the path to believe that the Jewish State has returned just as Biblically prophesized and their European adjunct simply cannot break free from their over two millennia hatred of anti-Semitism beginning with the Hellenist Greeks to the Roman Caesars on to the Byzantines, the Germanic and other barbarian tribes through the Crusades, Inquisitions, Purifications and other Christian Reformations to the Holocaust and still flowing through the cracks ruining the presumed end of anti-Semitism throughout Europe. The truth is the new anti-Semitism is reborn as anti-Zionism and a total pro-Palestinian slant on all votes, debates and other possibilities with such a malicious vindictiveness that resembles too closely its detestable anti-Semitism of centuries past. The fact that only nine nations including Israel and the United States should not be surprising as between the European influences worldwide and the oil influence of the Muslim Arabs and Iranians, only seven others found the intestinal fortitude to stand in favor of Trump’s engaging the world by starting the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem in recognition of it as the capital of Israel, well, if truth be told, the capital even if shared in some future of Israel and to be determined. The seven brave nations allied with Israel and the United States were Guatemala, Honduras, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo. Not exactly, the largest and most impressive of nations, but these nations stood up for truth and reality of history.

 

As for the meaning of this cataclysmic anguished detachment from reality as well as all of human history, it boils down to one simple and recognizable affliction, anti-Semitism. When the greatest example of human despair in and around Syria is, according to the United Nations in all of its manifestations, is the Palestinians condition and their being denied immediate recognition of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount in particular and all of historic Israel belonging not to the Jews but to the Johnny-come-lately Arabs is the initial evidence of unbalanced thinking with a heavy dose of bias. The facts that the only people denied the rights to their own nation are the Jewish People, and they have been genetically proven as a people, is another element to prove the denial of Israeli right to exist as the home of the Jewish People is anti-Semitism. The world fears that permitting the Jews to have their own nation will cement forever the old principles and worn out dogmas of the Old Testament, such as the Ten Commandments and the civil treatment of every person willing to reside peaceably with you and the other mitzvahs, commandments and all the other influences the Jewish People have had on morality and civilization. They fear that they may be judged by their actions and battering their neighbor over the head just because, as is going on in Syria, Yemen, the Sudan with South Sudan, Nigeria and Boko Haram and the other wars and whispers of war, will become something that will be seen as wrong and the world will demand civility and peace between all peoples. This vote signifies that the United Nations no longer cares to observe its own Charter, in particular Article 80, and has abdicated its role as an impartial mediator between Israel and the Arab World. According to Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, the United Nations is tasked to recognize and complete the Mandate system to its completion as laid out by the League of Nations who followed the basic principles of the San Remo Conference. This makes the United Nations party to enforcing the stated border introduced under the British Mandate which was the Jordan River with the Arabs receiving 78% of the British Mandate East of the Jordan River and Jews received the 22% of the British Mandate West of the Jordan River, which makes things so easy to implement. This is what this vote tells us and what the bringing of the similar motion before the Security Council where fourteen nations voted in favor of disestablishing the decree of an American President and an Act of the American Congress forcing an American Veto with the remaining single objection. These motions mean far more than just attempting to dispute Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem or even of dismemberment of Israel piece by piece as the Arabs and the United Nations have been working towards for close to fifty years; these attempts at disavowing President Trump’s statement and superceding his order to move the United States Embassy are an attempt to place the United Nations at some if not any level as superceding the functions of a state to determine their own actions.

 

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

 

These actions by the United Nations far exceed anti-Semitism, as they are an attempt to place the United Nations as a superior state which can instruct other nations what they may and may not do even with their own embassies, lands, armies or even diplomacy. The United Nations has for quite some time now been attempting to instruct the Israeli government on what they are permitted in doing and what they may not do as it displeases those at the top of the world in the United Nations, the soon to be one world governance. They have superseded their own rules and Charter; they have disputed and dissolved treaties such as the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres and the Mandate System. They have already permitted the almost complete eradication of Lebanon as the home for the Maronite Christians and other Christian sects and are working to do the same to the Jewish State of Israel. They have meddled with numerous smaller nations but avoided engaging to solve or face the violent perpetrators around the globe and end even the most grievous genocidal wars since its inauguration. Here is a partial list, which includes two-dozen of the worst genocides, from which one can start to recognize the complete lack of effort by any world body to ameliorate, prevent or intervene to end any one of these nor do we see any hope that the world will address those genocidal violence still ravaging parts of the world, particularly from the United Nations. Instead, what do we see the United Nations calling a special session to do? They called their special session to first try and force a binding resolution overturning the President of the United States acting in concurrence with a Congressional Directive which was overwhelmingly passed by both houses of Congress, the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 which passed the Senate by a vote of 93 in favor and 5 opposed and passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 374 in favor and 37 opposed, and when that failed going to the rubberstamp committee known as the General Assembly to get an advisory but unenforceable declaration of distressed feelings. The United Nations is standing at the cusp of it becoming a superior entity capable of altering the actions and laws even of a super power or facing dissolution and the end of its dishonorable acts as over the last seventy years the United Nations has run off the rails. This vote against President Trump was simply another hysterical reaction by the one world influence at the audacity of the President the world appears to love to hate and the fact that it included denial of the existence of the Israeli capital, as Jerusalem, was simply the cherry atop the whipped cream and nuts on the sundae.

 

The United Nations was envisioned by the movers and shakers for the one world government as the eventual successor to the European Union. Their vision while slowly constructing the central governance in Brussels where appointed autocrats dictate to their lessors, the elected leaders of the member states, what currency they must accept, what aid they must give to the failing states and all sorts of other items except for one rather major and vital area, finance. Other than accepting the Euro, and in most cases using it as their official currency much to their own detriment, the European Union central powers do not extend to economic and financial rule. This allows for each nation to set their own minimum wage, their own retirement age, their days worked each week, the hours of a workday, interest rates and other wonderful items are decided by each nation. This has led to Germany being the economic engine which is due to longer workday and longer hours with a later retirement age and much set for industrial output while Greece has a far weaker economy and depends largely on tourism and agriculture and thus a far less dynamic economy. The problem is with their economies both run on the Euro; Greece appears bankrupt and unable to devalue their Euro against Germany’s Euro. If Greece were permitted to return to their own currency, they could adjust it to make their country become more investment enticing leading to an economic upturn, instead the wunderkind in Brussels believe it is better to take some hard earned German Euros and simply allow them to go to Greece in the form of a loan guaranteed by Germany so when Greece defaults, Germany pays Germany back for the bad loan and everybody is happy. Well, everybody is happy once, maybe twice, but eventually Germany, or whatever country is being robbed, as that is what this is, robbery, they get a little peeved and refuse to play any longer. Britain got so distressed seeing that they were next after Germany, did the smart thing, despite the extensive ad campaign to the contrary, they voted for Brexit and went out of the European Union, eventually as it presumably will take two years to completely disassociate. We can expect others to do the same leaving Germany and likely France working away real hard to support Greece and the other nations who are on the receiving end of the cash flow until the European Union goes bust.

 

The European Union was supposed to grow until it contained all of Europe while NAFTS would unite the Americas, and Asia would be bound with China and these multinational groups would slowly assume total power unifying their respective states into a single entity and those entities would then be absorbed by the United Nations and presto-chango there would be a one world governance. Imagine the wonderful things which could be accomplished if all the nations melted away. Imagine if there is a world living the John Lennon dream, Imagine. Lennon’s dream, our nightmare. What is nice is that Israel is the antidote for the one world government. Israel has been the antidote for quite a few things. They were the antidote for the Greek concept of the perfect human being the omnipotent force in all existence and the worship of the human form. Israel was the antidote for the Roman hedonism and use of humans for sport and entertainment making there a class of human whose value was nil. Israel threw off Greek rule once and Roman rule twice, the second leading to the Jews being dispersed throughout the Roman Empire and some thrown beyond to live in the world which was of no consequence. The Romans had done this to others such as the Carthaginians after they sacked Carthage. The Carthaginians ceased to exist as a separate people as did the others. Most of those the Romans dispersed were lost to history and all such peoples and their societies ceased at the moment of dispersion except the Jews. The others could not exist without their lands; the Jews have two lands, one physical, Israel and the other ethereal, Torah. Torah kept the Jews as a people and the promise of Torah that one day we would return to our land and it would become a nation in a single day, that was the promise we lived for, return to our sacred lands and to Jerusalem. It was stated that the land could only flourish for the Jewish People and would deny all others its bounty. This too proved true as in all the years when the Jews were but a small presence, the land barely produced. Now with the Jews returning, the land has sprung to life in all the areas where the Jews reside. (We found this amusingly interesting and some of it rang true, we will leave the rest to you to see what you might think.) The number of prophesies which have been validated by actual history, and we are referring to those which there is little doubt such as the length of the final dispersion until the reestablishment of the State of Israel for the final and permanent time plus additionally that the entire state will not be taken initially but in steps until it includes Biblical Israel being reestablished in its entirety. The United Nations does not believe the Old Testament, nor does it believe the New Testament or any other religious writings with one possible exception, the Quran. But the Quran the United Nations would have is different than the one the Muslims believe as in the United Nations version there is no Allah or any other deity other than the United Nations itself.

 

The United Nations wishes to return the world to when man was the highest form of life and everything came into being to justify humankind purely by accident. We are here because in the infinite universes which were thrown into existence at the moment of creation, most failed catastrophically and disappeared, others became massive super condensed black hole universes with all their matter crushed into a single mass, and an uncountable number of universes are similar to ours with some alterations but within the parameters for a working universe and we are on the one which makes us possible and no real need for any deity, just infinite universes. This theory has begun to run into some serious doubt of late. The mathematics has been run through some of the most powerful supercomputers of our day and they have found some disturbing truths. If any of a thousand variables that have been tested had been different in their mass, force particle, interaction-ability and off in any area by even one-tenth of one percent and we could not have come into existence. The universe had to be crafted so exactly and precisely with so many different variables being so specific, that many scientists have concluded that the universe could never have come into being by a pure accident no matter how many universes there were. As one cosmologist put it when asked if the current theories about the universe ruled out there being an omnipotent deity, he ruled out the omnipotent deity who could alter things at a whim and was interactive breaking the rules when such an entity felt the need and stated instead that if there were a deity which created the universe, he was one heck of a mathematician. Still, Jews, at least the majority of religious Jews, will continue to pray and fully accept Hashem as the creator and heck of a mathematician whose formulas include the occasional miracle right when it is necessary. We will also believe that there is more to existence than what the physicists, cosmologists, chemists, biologists or any other area of research can ever explain with all their knowledge. There is a force within every person placed there by some unknown force which must connect all of reality and links us to the next world, a place of unimaginable calm and peacefulness where we no longer need to worry about our physical bodies as we have left them for another existence where our purest form, our soul interacts with every soul that had, does and will exist, for the soul is the true infinite form, a piece of the Almighty. The United Nations becomes so irrelevant at this level that returning to discuss them further would ruin our mood, so for now, good-bye.
