We bet you have seen tons of articles with titles something like this. As the title says, ours will be different. First and Foremost, Jews are a smashing three-quarters of one percent at best and likely closer to, at best, one-half of one percent. One item which should be obvious is that the Jews are highly unlikely to decide the election unless it is death defying close. As Marine Le Pen has already made the majority of the Muslims likely to oppose her, and as they represent ten times the vote compared to the Jews, she has defined her candidacy for the mainstream French, the traditionalists and nationalists are her target constituency. The media has an interesting manner of delineating the two remaining candidates in the French elections. The easy and less biased manner might be to refer to Emmanuel Macron as the left leaning candidate and Marine Le Pen as the right leaning candidate. But, calling Macron as the Center-Left and Le Pen as Far Right is about as slanted and crying out to demand that Macron is acceptable and just like Mr. and Mrs. Normal and Le Pen is an extremist. But then the media across the entire world is so slanted to the left that they are driving on the shoulder of an eight-lane highway and teetering on the ditch beyond. We are not about to place Marine Le Pen as a centrist but then Macron is only a center anything when compared to the leftists the media originally favored and were so forlorn when they lost. We can only imagine the weeping and sobbing that went on at International New York Times, Le Monde, Libération and especially at L’Humanité and at least some glee at one paper, Le Figaro. You will notice there is a slight bulk of papers leaning to far left or even Communist and there is one sole paper which is a daily that leans, at that is merely, leans right. But that aside, we are not here to discuss the problems with media slant worldwide or even the distance each candidate is from dead center of the political spectrum, we are here to discuss Marine Le Pen and the Jews in the setting of the coming French elections.
One nice thing is that Marine Le Pen actually made it to the finals in the elections as for far too many years the choice for the French in their elections was between a “Center-Left” or pure Left candidate against a “Far-Left” or actual Communist candidate. There were not even single centrists in French elections, so this is a nice change. For the Jews, they were more than satisfied when the choices were what degree of left one desired in their President. Things have changed in France in the more recent past for the French Jews. Have they noticed these changes? Well, there will be an easy scale by which to measure. Those who have noticed will be voting for Marine Le Pen, those who already knew, a small, very small, segment of the Jews, will also vote for Le Pen. The remainder will vote as the Jews normally vote, for the furthest left candidate possible, which in this case is Emmanuel Macron. There are likely numerous Jews who are in some state of mourning over the loss by Socialist Party nominee Benoit Hamon leaving them with no true candidate to actually support, but they will still gladly rush out to vote against Le Pen. This is voting against their best interests, but Jews have been voting against their best interests for years across Europe as well as the United States. They will likely vote in numbers against their best interests in the upcoming French finals. The French Jews who truly understand what is coming in France and then across Europe have already voted with their feet. They have departed France and other places in Europe for the United States, and the smarter one for Israel.
Marine Le Pen would be the safest bet for the future of France and thus, if Jews are planning to remain in France, then Le Pen would be the best candidate. Across Europe the only candidates who show any plans for saving Europe from itself and the immigration waves from washing over the continent finally bringing on the Islamist dream of finally conquering Christianity and destroying Christian Europe are the nationalist right. Continuing to elect left wing candidates and hoping that things will change and all of a sudden a new left path to assimilating the coming millions of Muslims which they will continue to allow to stream into Europe from North Africa, Middle East and Turkey despite their past inability to show even a modicum of a plan, that would be plain insanity. Unfortunately, the one thing I can tell you with certainty from my years at services in the United States surrounded by leftist Jews, following the same people who promise the sun and the moon delivering only heartache election after election is something leftist are capable of believing is the best path to change and actually do repeat their mistake election after election. The Jews are probably right now discussing what horrors would befall them should Marine Le Pen win and they could not be further from the truth. Marine is the only hope the Jews, the remaining Christians and even the Secular Humanists have for bringing the inflow of Muslims to an end as she is the only candidate defining France as being French in its history and future instead of defining France as the leader of the new Europe and the fountain for change and the new Europe. There is no new Europe and there can only be an old Europe, or any Europe, if the flow of Asians, of Muslims from the entirety of the Muslim world is brought to a close, over, kaput, finis. Even if Marine were to win, a long shot kind of like Trump, only higher odds against her, that alone would not save Europe as only Europeans can make Europe great again.
The electing of Marine would be the first step and would show that the people of France, at least a good number of them, are ready to make a change of direction. Such a result would be the first step to taking on the real problems in France and all of Europe and even those same problems which are plaguing the United States. There is the need for an existential change to be undertaken by the people, the citizens of Europe. In this endeavor, the Jews of France and all Europe could take the lead and assist in showing the way forward. Of course, the Jews of France, of Europe, will need to first place themselves on the correct track. This would be easier for them than for the Secular Humanists, but they would first require the correct leadership which they might find closer than they think. The leadership they require is at their synagogue day and night, when there is a crowd on the High Holidays and when the Synagogue is locked up tight at night and nobody is there. Their best leadership is Torah as it teaches all they would need to know to assist helping Europe to heal itself and begin to return to a more healthy Europe. But without a Le Pen victory in the election, there might not be any Europe left to save, at least not any Europe which we might recognize from any Europe from her past. The reality is that Europe actually requires regaining a piece from her past in order to save her future. The past which the Europeans need to regain is having a future to live for. By a future, we do not mean tomorrow or next week or even next month or year, we mean next generation and generation after and make a point that every generation knows that it is the next generation and the generations beyond who are important, not the pleasures of today. There is no pleasure which can be had at the pleasure palaces of Europe which can equal a first step, a first word, their first school pageant, the first time they hold their infant sibling and the multitude of wondrous firsts and how each child shows the parent new things every day at every first. Each child brings new and varied surprises and grants their parents joys mixed with challenges which together make life more real and full of love beyond anything found in the cafes and clubs of Paris. Even more, children are what any European future requires and it currently is not being provided with sufficient children to last another two generations. Europe is dying from having a hedonistic population which is too busy chasing their own pleasure and being too unconcerned with the reality of where their running from one pleasure palace to the next is leading because their eyes are blurred with the moment clouding their vision from seeing the future they are denying themselves and the future of their country which they are wasting.
Marine Le Pen cannot save France from the lack of children; she can only give France the opportunity to try to save itself. France must first waken to the problem which they have developed through their living in the present and solely in the present without ever giving their future any consideration. By ignoring their future and even sacrificing their future so they could reside in the pleasures of the now, they have poisoned their society and mortally wounded a continent. Politicians such as Marine Le Pen understand the initial bleeding which must be checked before any more damage is done and then the root of the problem can be addressed. This is not solely a French problem but the solution can start as a French solution. The French were the first to prevent a Muslim takeover of the European Continent when Charles the Hammer Martel defeated the Moorish forces coming out of Spain at the Battle of Tours. France can once again take the lead and save Europe by leading the wave of European recovery. First Europe must recover her center and remember that religion is not about stifling life but about centering life and building futures through family. Futures depend on families and without healthy families with children there will be no future for Europe as her proud history has painted her. It is not too late to save Europe, but it will take an awakening within the Europeans themselves and nothing less will allow Europe to be renewed. Marine Le Pen can be the first step in that renewal but it will take more than an election, it will take an awakening.
