The Unmaking of America

 

America was founded upon great principles which relied upon a well-educated and involved electorate founded in morality and steeped in Judeo-Christian ethic. The moral underpinnings of America have been eroded slowly but inexorable since the end of World War II and the beginning of the rule of the cities which many were destined to become megalopolises. Just like the original cities of iniquity, Sodom and Gomorrah, deprivations began to grow within the cesspools of the new civilization. The pews grew emptier and emptier until the churches became too expensive to support by the paltry remains of congregants. They became schools, restaurants, malls and some even became Mosques as the new religion which was growing was Islam. This was the story and history written across Europe and gaining a beachhead in America. The hope and presumed saving grace which was to protect America was her well-crafted Constitution. Presumable the balance of powers and the checks and balances would prevent the corruption from taking the nation over the edge and into oblivion. But as presented, the Constitution was written for, in the immortal words of John Adams, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Slowly but surely the United States has sunk beneath irreligious immorality rendering the Constitution less of a protecting blanket and more of a sheer veil pretending to cover and protect.

 

But the immorality, it ends up, will be the lesser problem as the lack of education of the people will bring forth an electorate which will be enticed by babbles, smoke and delights offered by tempters and shysters. Their votes bought with the treasures of a government which will become bankrupt in the process and the nations will be left with a populace which will be as empty in their pockets as they are in their heads. The education system will have failed them raising instead of scholars mere rubes indoctrinated to follow false prophets who they will elect for promises equally as empty. They managed to escape the charlatan this election only due to promises just as bold and bodacious as they will be difficult to fulfill. Yet to look at the colleges and their campuses and the future is written in their classes and the major fields the new intellectuals pursued and now educate the youth. Gender Studies and other philosophies of government painted as savior and the many needful groupings and minorities, the many colored and patterned quilt as the new model replacing the melting-pot. Instead of “E Pluribus Unum” the new cry is “instead of one-many.” Celebrate your separateness, be a special group demanding recognition and rights designed to keep each within their own and none shall stray from their special little click. Thus the populous has been set separate one from the others all against the other fighting for their special recognition and treatment exalted through government favors. Thus divided, the people are set to be conquered by the charlatans.

 

The colleges have also been bought by the oil sheiks and their monies as they have endowed new departments which they bought with their ill-gotten oil wealth making Middle East studies their means of indoctrinating the youth with their alternate reality. Their motive was simple; to win favor and defeat the one they believe is the greatest threat to their promised future. They have a religion in which they believe with every fiber of their beings. Their faith and trust in their god is the opposite of that in the Western developed world. They see their faith as resurgent and rising to replace all others starting with the Western religions starting with the Jews; it always starts with the Jews, but these believers of Allah also hold Christianity in equal disregard. This is why their main enemy which they teach in their classes and reinforce with staged demonstrations is Israel and the Jews. This is their theme in protests such as Israel Apartheid Week (month) and Palestinian Awareness protests through which they turn the irreligious against the Jews through repetition of tropes many thought dead and buried after the defeat of the Nazis and the revelation of the camps and anti-Semitic hatred which was a uniting trope of Nazis, a unifying hatred of the other, the Jew. Now the same trope is being sold on many college campuses including the Ivy League and top schools such as the California University System, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, CUNY, MIT, CMU, CWR, and many other well-respected places of higher learning. The spring semester and the coming of better weather throughout the college world across the United States is the time where the demonstrations turn against Israel and Jews feel and, in too many cases, become threatened and some have been attacked being blamed for perceived crimes of Israel. What crimes? The audacity to exist in the heart of what Islam considers their sacred Waqf.

Israel is but the first step, just a taste of their believed inevitable conquests. Their god has promised them that Allah will give them the world and all the people within and in that end they are bound to conquer all nations and convert or kill the infidel, the unbelievers. Their eventual gift to the world is rule by the Imams and all given a choice, Islam or death. This is not taught in their Middle Eastern studies as there they receive only the palatable. They are steeped in the hatred and inviolability of Islam throughout the Middle East and the hatred of the Jews and their presumed affront to humanity, to Islam, Israel. They are indoctrinated with the Palestinian narrative of the Jews stealing their ancient homeland and are taught that the Biblical story of the Jewish People, the Israelites is actually the history of the Palestinian Arabs. Never mind that the Arabs did not arrive in Jerusalem until the year 637 and was then fought over for centuries thereafter. But the new teachers of history of the Middle East know that their students have little if any knowledge of the Bible, the Old Testament. Many know next to nothing about the New Testament so it stands to reason they would know even less of Jewish history and thus are willing to accept that which they are taught. The professors of other subjects accept this alternate history with the only major fields not thusly infected being the hard sciences. One of the most renowned of the linguistic professors was the late Edward Said who, along with fellow traveler and also linguist, Noam Chomsky, have taught the Islamic tropes and fully vilified Israel and the Jews, which is weird as Noam Chomsky was born Jewish. They are but a sampling of the humanity professors who back the Islamic Middle Eastern history letter for letter as many of their departments are dependent upon the oil monies which equal over a billion dollars yearly from Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia and even Iran.

 

This lifeblood corrupts the entire scholarly endeavor infecting the universities and through them future generations who will soon be the leaders of the Western nations leaving them vulnerable to Islam as these leaders will have already been corrupted. This is what could bring down America and the world will be a darker place for the loss. This past election was the primal scream of the middle of the United States, fly-over country, the moral and often silent majority. This was the expression of the last of those who fill the pews of the churches largely outside the main metropolises. These were the people who will hopefully demand their country back and force truth in the education system. Should the education system remain corrupted and ineffectual then all will be lost. The task ahead is one of rebuilding, of rejuvenation and of resurrection of what has been lost to corrupt governance. The schools need be retaken and once again teach the lessons which were the basis that built America. There need be a retaking of the youth for if the youth are lost then so will be the future. The teacher unions have forsaken the children and education in their lust for political power and higher wages. Teachers often now are more interested in job security, retirement benefits and ever increasing salaries with tenure assuring them of a comfortable life where their position is unassailable and thus does not require their fulfilling any obligation to actually teach to actually educate. What are the options? That is a difficult one but the most obvious is to drastically change the education system. The available alternatives are private schools or homeschooling. Should sufficient students be pulled from the current education system, perhaps it would collapse under its own weight and allow for replacement with a better system. Continuing on with the current systems, then the future will be determined by a basically ignorant electorate which has a false history fed them by teachers in the grasp of their unions and foreign money and influences in government. That will present a populace which silently accepts what their “betters” dictate to them without even a murmur. Let us pray that this last election was not the final scream as the world plunges into darkness for a thousand years, maybe longer.

A Law Whose Time Has Come

 

Imagine for a moment that a group of nations in Europe and the European Union itself had decided, more or less as a loosely defined group, that they were going to finance and direct a group of NGOs in Israel with the intent of besmirching the image of Jordan throughout the world and work to degrade the Israeli military and drag its military and civilian leadership and soldiers before the world courts on charges of crimes against humanity. Imagine they also worked to collapse Israel as a nation and replace it with an Arab nation using spurious claims that there exists a group who have a deeper and more legitimate claim on the land and whose history was the exact history the Jews were claiming only older and thus more valid than the Jewish claims despite known facts to the contrary. Finally, imagine these same NGOs claiming to be indigenous and demanding government funding from the Israeli government and were influencing the courts and attempting to assist candidates in elections who would be more in line with the designs of the European financed NGOs in granting the Arab claims on the land and might even cripple their own nation before the spurious claims and yet lobbied the government to prevent a law making it that NGOs who received over half their financing from outside Israel to have to report all of their financing while still allowing their right to operate and claim to be actual representatives of the majority of Israelis despite all evidence to the contrary. If you were able of imagining such a ridiculous plot against Israel, then you have just successfully reached an understanding of exactly what is occurring in Israel right now.

 

This is not even a new issue as it has been going on for well over a decade by groups such as Breaking the Silence, B’Tselem, Adalah, Yesh Din, Machsom Watch, Hamoked, Rabbis for Human Rights and far too many others. All of these groups support the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement which singles Israel out claiming their laws make Israel an Apartheid state. One spurious claim made constantly despite full knowledge that the complaint is unwarranted is that Israel has not permitted the Arab Palestinians to hold an election for over a decade. Is it true that the Arabs living in the semiautonomous regions under the administration of the Palestinian Authority headed by Chairman Mahmoud Abbas who was elevated to the position after the death of Yasser Arafat in 2004 have yet to vote since 2005; yes, that is a valid statement which is what makes the charge appear to be valid. The fly in that ointment is the fact that the Palestinian Authority is semiautonomous and thus has political control and governs the area in question and Mahmoud Abbas has refused to permit election where he would necessarily stand for reelection and knows he would most likely lose such an election, thus, no elections. Israel has no power to force elections in the areas under Palestinian Authority political control any more than any government in Europe can force elections in another country. Such a claim is like so many others, containing a kernel of truth which makes it believable and appear valid but the rest of the charge is false and known to be using false links and logic. The election libel is similar to the libel that the IDF (Israeli Defense Force, the Israeli military) is guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocidal crimes against the Arab Palestinians and other atrocities. Has the IDF ever had a soldier or commander of a unit commit war crimes? Unfortunately that is true as it is of any army which fights in a combat area and for proof one need not look any further than at the case against Colonel West formerly of the United States Military. His case was covered by the New York Times in an article titled THE STRUGGLE FOR IRAQ: INTERROGATIONS; How Colonel Risked His Career by Menacing Detainee and Lost which gives the essentials and the situation facing commanders in the combat zones.

 

Just as colonel West came forth and faced military trial but took an early retirement from what had before one act to protect his troops by insinuating he was about to do the unthinkable to a detainee, IDF had soldiers who have crossed lines but Breaking the Silence has been found to be using testimonies from soldiers who were forced from the IDF and are bitter about their experience and even using known activists who were never in the IDF as witness or the ones who committed such war crimes to get false testimonies which they then market to a receptive media and other manner of shaming the IDF. If Breaking the Silence were really interested in policing and improving the morality and legal restrictions being obeyed they would not seek publicity and attempt to shame the IDF and besmirch their reputation in media around the world but would rather bring their evidence before the IDF and assist in the prosecution or fact finding such that these IDF soldiers could be brought before a trial and new guidelines could be made known within the IDF preventing another such disgrace which the IDF has proven time and again to investigate every accusation of wrongdoing and does so in complete view of the public. The IDF has had its actions in the last Gaza offensive and every military engagement under the scrutiny of a military panel made up of senior officers and experts on military and international laws of warfare wherever such inquiries were warranted. The United Nations report was largely assisted by Israeli NGOs who, without exception, rely on European funding largely from individual governments, the European Union itself with a guiding purpose of defaming and disrupting the IDF and its efforts to protect Israelis from Arab aggressors including numerous terror entities such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others operating in Gaza as well as Judea and Samaria (West Bank). Below are three videos of experts on the laws of war and International Law, the first two are separate testimonies before the United Nations as an individual expert and as part of the panel of review both emphasizing the good and deficits of their review by Lieutenant Colonel Jeffery Corn, U. S. Army Law of War Expert, and the third is Colonel Kemp who was an observer during the Gaza War as is also an expert on the laws of war and International Law as well as the makeup and slanted objective of the United Nations panel looking to equate IDF actions with those of Hamas or possibly dirty the IDF sufficiently so as to exonerate all actions taken by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, al-Qaeda, Islamic State and other terror actions in the Gaza war and before the war with the firing rockets by the hundreds and even thousands per day which was the real cause of the conflict. Please give each approximately two minutes of your time as they are worth hearing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The law being considered and about to be presented to the Knesset for actual debate and voting will be more revealing and honest than the efforts to make this legislation out to be an assault on the rights of individuals, minorities, all Palestinians and the free expression of NGOs and other elements which may at times appear critical of Israel, as the possible to be effected NGOs have claimed. The so-called “Transparency Bill” would require NGOs who receive over 50% of their funding from foreign states to reveal the precise sources of their funds. The aim is to curb the current practice of primarily European states who seek to undermine Israeli government policy by pouring millions into extreme-left and radical Arab Israeli NGOs, according to reports and comments of its supporters. European Union Ambassador to Israel Lars Faaborg-Andersen said the Bill was more suited to a “despotic” country and added, “The Bill is explicitly intended to harm organizations critical of government policy. It will have a negative impact on the image of Israel and its standing in Europe as an open and democratic society.” Of course his comments that this legislation would impact Israeli relations with the very governments financing these foreign sourced NGOs and will now require the European busybodies who ignore the serious and potentially fatal economic and immigration positions of their own actions and spend inordinate amounts of their funds taken by taxation and other revenue sources such as tariffs and fees all to spend on financing NGOs in order to influence and destroy both politically and physically the state of Israel and only the state of Israel which just happened to be the only state of the Jews as well as the sole true democracy in the Middle East. These actions say more about these nations and the European Union and their resorting to their oldest hatreds which they have been and apparently always will be as a whole anti-Semites who firmly hold the identical view as the Arabs and too much of the Islamic world that the Jews and their state must be destroyed and brought down to be trodden on by their betters, which is defined as any bipedal lifeform free of feathers and warm blooded. These actions are claimed to be warranted as only by the destruction of Israel will peace and human rights break out in the Middle East; like the Syrian civil war turned Sunni-Shiite war will end if Israel ceases to exist, RIGHT, now tell me another European act so pathetic that even laughter gives more credence and attention than it deserves. Below is an example and translation of the fliers dropped on one location of concentrated terrorist resistance and rocket fire and these were dropped before any IDF action by approximately thirty minutes giving the Arab citizens time to relocate. The real and obvious side-effect of these warnings is it both reveals the next area targeted and allows the terrorists time to relocate as well. The advantage is that by relocating the Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other terror units will be in the open and not surrounded by civilians and thus their choices from bad to worse are they can relocate and present easy targets for airstrikes free of civilian casualties or remain in place and be eradicated free of civilian casualties.

The reality is that these NGOs do not serve the majority or even a plurality of Israeli citizens almost all of whom realize their lives are dependent upon the skill and sacrifices of the IDF and know they are owed a debt of gratitude beyond anything we can offer other than our support, thanks and love. We Israelis cannot begin to find sufficient respect for our IDF young men and women as they are by leaps and bounds the most moral and honorable military in the world ever. What also sets them apart from all other militaries, the Islamic State fears any conflict and especially a front where they would be facing the IDF on their borders. The British and Americans they claim they would welcome, though we all know they really do not want to see the entire force which the United States and Britain to a somewhat lesser extent, but as the IDF has proven repeatedly that size or lack thereof does not mean less fierce or efficient on the battlefield. The Islamic State facing a determined NATO front would last about three hours after the civilians let loose the full force as was utilized during World War II or even a single front, either the Japanese or the European front’s forces. There is another problem on the ground in an area which presents such a plethora of such challenges and where we can be glad that Egypt is no longer in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood or that too would present some difficulties.

 

One has to wonder why Israel presents such an interest and desire to do harm where no such attitude exists on the Israeli side and only desires to run their nation free of foreign entangling and mischief working to their detriment. This “Transparency Bill” only seeks to present an honest assessment and accounting before the public and provide honesty and open examinations of any outside entities seeking to hide behind highly placed charges and other mischief all tailored to bring Israel down. This blood libel of Israel as presented by Breaking the Silence before the world is simply evidentiary proof that these NGOs are nothing more than appendages of European anti-Semitism seeking to destroy Israel by setting a completely different standard and though knowing of these NGOs perfidious acts and missions statements as they are funded by their European government and the European Union who direct them to provide the exact information and take whatever stand is required for the moment and dance for their masters in Europe. The Jews who work with these groups knowing their intent and origins are nothing more than the fools, and all too many were Jews, who assisted Lenin into power who never hid his hatred for Jews but that has never bothered the leftist Jews who will grease the wheels instead of the tracks at some crucial location as the train will not take them until they are the last or the war turns poorly but the one thing they are guaranteed, in the end they will be murdered as such is the way of the tyrants. In the meantime as Europe itself has chosen a slow suicide by allowing open immigration and are receiving largely untrained people seeking the European baskets of support and not opportunity which will pay off once the requirement of hard work has been met. These immigrants are setting up areas where their laws are applied and their nation and its laws are kept quite distant beyond the jagged line upon which Europe will be breaking themselves against these jagged edges long before Israel can come to their rescue; especially should these very same Europeans continue their pogroms attempting to tear Israel down before her enemies.
