What is the Source Driving the Stabbing Intifada?

The experts have come out with their reasons for the current violence claiming that the Stabbing Intifada or the Intifada III and many of them completely miss the mark claiming that it is all about Arab nationalism. The actual attackers who are arrested will very likely give a plethora of reasoning for why they attacked Israelis hoping their targets were Jewish. Some will claim they did it to force Israel to give the Arabs a state. Such reasoning has so little reason and logic to it that one must question what the underlying reasons exist. Some will claim they did it simply to kill Jews because the Jews are the enemies of Islam meaning their reason was religious. Many would give completely different excuses or reasons if they were questioned on every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for three weeks. What you would only hear on the rarest of occasions was that they really were not sure why they tried or succeeded in murdering an Israeli. Due to the constant drumbeat of incitement in all forms of media and especially on the social media and entertainment, they saw killing a Jew as a way to fame and financial security for the family plus gained honor for their family. What is not taken into consideration is what the reality is in the entire Arab/Israeli Conflict, and that is the fly in the ointment.

Whenever there is an Intifada, it is the result of increased incitement mixed with actual attacks by terrorists with a clean record as far as the Israeli authorities’ records thus not considered affiliated with any of the terror entities. A small number of these are over a short period of time coordinated with concentrated glorification blended with celebratory remembrances of terror heroes from previous Intifadas complete with the naming of parks, streets and other events or celebratory naming with possibly the honoring with speeches and sermons for the terrorists who are committing the current murders. This would have the effect ripe for others to be given the slightest impetus to go and commit their own attacks against Israelis. Since the initial attacks were committed using knives, then knives became the weapon of choice until there was the incitement calling for vehicular attacks and then some vehicular assaults began to happen. There were even some shooting attacks even without any raw instigation aimed at such but they were rewarded with recognition right along with the stabbers and drivers who targeted Israelis. The real defining forces behind the Intifada are also those who define the reason behind the need for such tactics. Why the individual attackers went out has no effect on the reasons that the conflict continues without any solution, and that is the reason that these youths are ending up in hospital and worse, giving their lives for something they do not even understand. They are risking throwing away their lives for a cause defined by the few people at the top of Fatah and Hamas who both have only two actual aims for their continuing the conflict; the complete destruction of the Jewish State of Israel followed by the eradication of Jews world-wide while also placing the entire world under the yoke of Islam. I know, nobody thinks about conquering the world since World War II and the Cold War as that proved that such was an impossible task as the Roman Empire failed, the Greek Empire Failed, the Persian Empire failed, the Mongol Empire failed, the British came close through colonization as did Spain, France, Portugal, Netherlands, and other colonialists and neither did the Ottoman Islamic Empire succeed in conquering the world. Probably the closest any nation had come to conquering the world would be American culture.

The problem is nobody bothered to tell the Muslim world who believe that they will one day rule Andalusia replacing Spain and Palestine replacing Israel then take the Balkans followed by Rome along with the rest of Europe which is part of the reasoning behind the refugee invasion into Europe. The refugees have a fairly significant number of Islamists intermixed with the real refugees, the exact percentage is unknown but our belief, and this is pure conjecture, that somewhere between fifteen and twenty percent of the refugees. The majority of these plants into the refugee numbers are likely of two varieties, those who will lead instigations immediately causing disturbances hoping that the other Muslims will act as Islamic warriors and join these disturbances and possibly continue to cause disruptions even without the lead of the instigator planted amongst them. The other instigators are more likely planners whose jobs will come into play later when they work alongside the Imams who will be sent to lead the congregations of the new Mosques which will be started across Europe in every neighborhood from the smallest hamlet to the largest megalopolis such as London, Paris, Dresden and Marseilles. In most of these cities there are churches and even potentially Cathedrals which will be used as Mosques, a sad but obvious future just as the Hagia Sophia was converted into a Mosque by the Ottoman Empire.

The story in Europe has already been written and it is easy to read even today. Go into the Cathedrals and if they are open they have next to no parishioners. The same is true in the churches across Europe. In the previous communist nations, the Warsaw Pact nations there might be some who are going to their churches but most of them are far older and will dwindle over the coming decades. Meanwhile the Islamic women are producing babies and the Christian women will often end up marrying a Muslim man because he has drive and charm and something he believes in and that is an interesting aphrodisiac. Within the next few years Europe will accommodate their new arrivals and start slowly adopting Sharia. Get it straight that it is not called Sharia Law; it is just Sharia and is instrumental in changing lands from any religion to Islam. Don’t believe us just look at the entirety of the Middle East and across North Africa (MENA) and all you will find are pockets of beleaguered and desperate Christians; if you find any, you will find no or negligible numbers of Jews because they had already been sent out with only the old and the foolish remained behind. Now it is the time for the Christians to be finished off, to be given the inevitable choice Sharia eventually leads to, convert or die or if you take one of the early choices, run for your life possibly escaping in the dead of night with maybe two small suitcases leaving all else behind. The Christian numbers have been eroded across all of the nations in MENA until they can no longer offer real resistance to becoming Dhimmis under Sharia which eventually ends with convert or die. That law has already been applied to Saudi Arabia and will be followed by Iraq and the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) nations of the Arabian Peninsula. There are already churches across Europe and in the United States who have dissolved their congregations, if you can call the few they held a congregation, and these congregations are either finding a new congregation or slowly losing their religion altogether. This has happened and the Europeans who paid any attention saw it happen but that was close to a century ago and has not been as necessary in modern times. It has occurred over the last few decades, say about seven decades, where Jordan started the drive and the Arab Palestinians accelerated the driving out of the Christians from Bethlehem and Nazareth as well as less well known Christian communities within the areas controlled by Arabs within the area of Israel controlled by the Arab Palestinians or their sympathizers within Israel proper.

Bethlehem is the perfect example city as it was peaking around eighty percent of the population was Christian just half a century ago. They lived what might have been called a blessed place of contentment and protection under Jordanian occupation. Slowly it started and the city appeared to be slowly losing its Christian population. Many of the women, or at least far too many for the health of the community, were marrying Muslim men. The Muslim men often had more than one wife and they were producing babies at twice the rate or more than the Christians who were beleaguered and being slowly assaulted. After the Six Day War the Christians had a period of relief but still their numbers were waning while there were more and more Muslims. Once the Oslo Accords gifted Bethlehem to Arab control the die had been cast. The Arab Palestinians began a concerted effort to force the Christians from Bethlehem and the rest of their autonomous zones, areas which have been constantly expanding as they push the Christian and Jews from entire areas and replace them with Muslim families. Today it was Bethlehem; so will it really be Marseilles in the upcoming years?

It all appears innocent at first until these tactics of throwing stones through the display window every other week and the glass shop keeps raising the price as he knows your window had become a form of the Jizyah, the Islamic tax which non-Muslims must pay in order to be protected from the ravages of the young and easily molded youth who are otherwise attacking individuals or throwing stones through display windows and stealing merchandise often brazenly right in front of the store owner challenging them to say something. Should a store owner actually protest they will find their store soon ransacked and then they themselves will be marked for attack and be made fearful wherever they go? Eventually it all builds up and either the Christian family packs what they can carry and flee before they end up dead like their friend, and almost every Christian knows of a friend who simply disappeared or their mangled body was discovered in a very public place one morning. As the church loses patrons they eventually are forced to sell and the Muslims have the ready monies that is why there is the Jizyah has been collected towards, the down payment on the church, business, and home of a Christian who sees the writing on the wall and flees.

There is one place in all of the MENA areas where the numbers of Christians is growing and their congregations are quite healthy, and that is Israel within the Green Line. These Christians are raising their families and attending their churches as Christianity is flourishing in Eretz Yisroel because of the Jews being in control and accounting for over two-thirds of the population and control the schools and other media with the exception of social media which is replete with Islamic incitement and Islamic outreach designed to force young Christians from Christianity and into the Islamic fold and once there one is kept under control until the entire congregation has been converted, scared away or eventually murdered. This is what is in Europe’s future and also after that will come the United States unless people realize the hole left in their lives where once there was fulfillment gained from believing in something and having a congregation as your community. Work will never create a community anything like or as strongly bound as a congregation which prays together and shares their beliefs. That is the lost element which could have saved Europe and the United States and why Israel will only grow stronger as the Jews are rediscovering their faith and the powers of faith in Hashem as he does indeed work miracles if only the people stop and notice, but who can stop and notice anything with the hectic schedules most people and their children spend their time running around trying to be complete. Religion filled that empty spot and provided that sense of fulfillment that so many are seeking in all the wrong places. Trust that I understand this first hand as I used to run from one replacement to the next and thankfully finally found the item I had unsuccessfully and blindly sought, and I found it is my religion where it had been all along. It is like hiding in plain sight which is often the darndest thing to find as so few look at what is right in front of them as in the picture above, the symbol of faith which once was the glue which held Marseilles together is the Cathedral right in the center of town as lectured above. When that Cathedral has been converted to a Mosque then all is lost and there may be no turning back. The choice is there for everyone in the western World, they just need to awaken in time.

Why Religion Has Started to Die in Society

Almost three-fourths of those Americans polled by Pew Research agreed that religion is losing influence in American life. This is reported to be the highest this subject has ever reached and thus begs a number of questions. The most evident question is what have these nearly three out of four Americans done to bring religion back into their lives and the lives of those around them. Religion cannot retreat from its place in society all by itself; it has to have accomplices who no longer incorporate religion into their daily lives. It is probably a fair statement to say that if only half of those who polled lamenting the loss of religion in the public square would make a personal effort to bring religion into the square that this would be sufficient to bring about the start of reversing that trend. The other truth is that there has been a concerted effort by a small but vocal and bothersome minority which have aided the retreat of religion from the realm of the American society, and they will need to be fought tooth and nail if their nefarious deeds are to be slowed and eventually thwarted and reversed, but it will take most of that almost three quarters of America. If in the words “Under G0d” could be added to the Pledge of Allegiance by President Eisenhower on Flag Day, June 14, 1954, by a Joint Resolution of Congress, then religion can be restored to its rightful place in our society if the majority of Americans wish and act in a manner that assists rather than neglects the place of religion in their daily lives.

Of course there have been other forces at work beyond the control of the average person as an individual. These are mostly societal pressures which often react to the concerted pressures made by smaller groups which are better organized and financed thus giving their views weight beyond that of any number of individual citizen even should they be part of the majority, even should that be a vast majority as long as that majority has not mobilized uniting together and financing concerted efforts to push their views before those who control the establishment of laws or their enforcement. One can place blame on those in high office who permit or even encourage such regulations and laws which work against religion but before doing so there are a few items within their own lives which they would be better served by addressing them if their efforts should prove less than helpful. Before claiming that the powers that be have acted irresponsibly they need to review whether their own actions have properly portrayed through their lives the importance of religion. The most important single item one can do to show their support for religion and their desire to have it reflected through the society in which they live would be to regularly attend weekly services and being active in the organized religious activities related to their particular religious beliefs. Nothing sends the message to those in high office that religion no longer matters to the citizenry louder than empty pews in the nation’s churches, synagogues, temples and other religious services. Holders of political office are not so well tuned and sensitive that they can divine the thoughts of the people by some extrasensory means allowing them to form opinions and impressions of the people’s beliefs in some way other than drawing conclusions from the activities of the people. Short of making decisions formed by the actions of the people they can only respond to what it appears that the people are demanding of them and that is where a small minority can sway these lawmakers simply by inundating them with calls, e-mails, letter and other forms of lobbying. The regular citizen rarely writes their representative and believes that simply by voting for a person to represent them is sufficient to have that representative actually represent them without any efforts on their behalf. So, if one’s actions such as attending regular religious services or writing and calling their representative’s offices, both in the capital and locally, then they are simply relying on exactly what to assure their representatives understand the importance of religion is in their lives and how important it is for religion to be permitted in the public square. But what are some of the other forces pressing religion into retreat from its former place of prominence in American society.

As already mentioned, there are forces at work here which have as their sole intent to beat religion out of the lives and society no matter what the cost or dangers. One such group is the Freedom From Religion Foundation. This and other related anti-religion and anti-faith based organizations spend millions and concerted efforts to chase religion from the public square by any and all means necessary. Such groups have lobbyists who press their influence personally making themselves friendly and close to your representative, make letter writing campaigns whenever legislation they support or wish to defeat inundating your representatives offices both in the capital and locally even going so far as to assure that these letters no matter where they originate are postmarked within your representative’s district for maximum influence, organize phone campaigns calling your representatives offices not only in the capital but in every community within his district, and know all the other ins and outs of pressing your ideas and opinions maximizing their influence, which is all part of the political game. The problem is that they also are minimizing your ability to influence your representatives and often doing so using people largely who do not reside anywhere near you and share none of your convictions, but they have the clout to silence your desires and press their desires squelching all others. This is the most serious problem with representative governance no matter its form, the ability of a small minority to use potentially nefarious methods and silencing a potentially vast majority in the halls of power. There is an easy and available means by which such groups can be vanquished and silenced their influence without doing anything immoral or underhanded, but it does require good people to take actions and do so under the auspices of a joint effort through an organization to which they all belong and are active in, their religious institutions where they gather and worship together. Unfortunately, the empty pews are evidence to the reason such efforts are so easily ignored; they have few who can be motivated to make the voice of the majority heard.

There is yet another problem which may be another facet of the lack of people attending services regularly, or even at all even on the most major of religious days. This next reason, next excuse, may also be a result of lack of regular attendance as by feeling that these leaders stand alone makes them more vulnerable to the malevolent forces. These leaders of our neighborhoods, or at least in better times they were our true leaders, the pastors, priests, rabbis and other clergy, other men of the cloth who have come under attack by forces within our societies. Some of these forces are the same as the ones garnering undue influence over our political representatives and others are the arms of our governance which are simply responding to what they perceive as the will of the society as well as to the dictates of the courts which are influenced by the cases brought before them. When courts see that across the lands there are cases brought demanding the ban of all religious symbols from the public square and the only protesters with numbers are supporting these legal maneuvers, they can only act to support what they perceive is the law as they witness the people interpret the law. The clergy would have a greater standing and voice if their houses of worship were filled weekly by people enthusiastic in celebrating their faith. But when they preach to a small few each week then their strength and power is reduced to a level equal to the numbers in regular attendance.

The United States is approaching the place where Europe has already reached where the clergy fear to speak out against injustices or to oppose those in the government allowing government to stifle and mute their voices. They have fallen in influence so far that they now speak for almost nobody and are thus easily pressed into a corner where they speak solely of those things which are supported by those who appear to have the hearts and souls of the majority of the people. A society is molded and formed by those who have the support and power granted by the ones willing to force their opinions onto the seats of power. That seat of power potentially is the secular governance or it can be the pulpits of the houses of worship, that choice lies with the people. Attend the houses of worship in numbers and the government will notice and adjust to that influence. This has been proven in Europe where the Mosques are vibrant and well attended while the churches in the home of modern Christianity sit empty echoing the silence, providing they have not been sold and converted to Mosques. If people desire to see the future of their communities and in turn nations all one need do is seek where and which religions hold the wills of the people and have the greatest support and there lies your future. It really is that simple.
