Our Worlds Are in a Mess and Clashing (Part II)

 

Link for Part I

 

Part II

 

Russia is another interesting problem. President Putin may as well declare himself Czar as the power flows to whatever position he holds at the moment. He is stuck in Syria defending two ports on the Mediterranean Sea which he knows are vital for Russia to have warm water ports capable of reaching the oceans. This was why he annexed the Crimea but that port had a difficulty, Turkey. With the annexation of the Crimea, Russia gained ownership of the Sevastopol Docks and Shipyards, the main docking for the Black Sea. The Black Sea is an oversized bathtub with one exit way leading to the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean which had to pass through the Bosphorus Strait and the Dardanelles, both of which are completely at the tender mercies of Turkey. Russia and Turkey have had less than wonderful relations since the Ottoman Empire, need we say more. Putin and Erdogan are two prima donnas who have clashed regularly and then settled into an uneasy peace only to butt heads again. This meant that passage through the Bosphorus Strait and the Dardanelles was not a guaranteed passage and thus the need for ports on the Mediterranean Sea. That placed Russia in Syria when Bashir al-Assad sort of fell from grace and fled to the west of Syria and his Alawite strongholds. These areas include the ports Russia so desperately needs, thus Russia supports Assad. Then there are the Kurds who deserve their own nation as they simply cleared their areas from Islamist terrorists and other freedom fighters, declared their area as for Kurds and Yazidis and held their ground not attempting to broaden their area of control satisfied with their corner of Syria and the northernmost regions of Iraq. Russia desires to beg off the Syrian civil war but also desires to retain these ports. This might suggest that an arrangement can be made for Bashir al-Assad to retain control of Syria in name and holding the west with Russia keeping her ports, the Kurds granted an area called Kurdistan which would include northeast Syria and northern Iraq, and the remainder be called East Syria and allow the Sunnis to control this area as long as they make peace with everyone else and rid themselves of any ties to terror. This would require one final step, the end of the Islamic State. Then the next decision is what to do with the southern two-thirds of Iraq of which half is all but owned by Iran?

This brings us to the Western World, largely the United States, Europe and the Anglophilic World which includes Canada, Australia and the rest of the English speaking Western World. The problem with the West is it has an illness which could be referred to as self-aggrandizement while reproducing towards extinction. The entire Western World only has one nation where it has a reproductive rate above replacement level, and that requires considering Israel a part of Europe as does the United Nations. Europe is the owner of the worst of these situations (see graph below). Turkey almost meets replacement rate but is more a part of the Middle East than Europe. This is the main reason why the European nations have opened their borders to “refugees” in the hope they will provide the workers required to pay the taxes to support their aging populations. This tactic will fail and fail utterly as those they are importing mostly desire to take power in Europe and take Europeans for everything they are worth to support their failing economies back home. Europe is importing people with either education with the desire to destroy Europe while making it into another subjugated Islamic held population of Dhimmis to be converted should they live long enough or uneducated and willing to be the cannon fodder for these educated elites. Europe is in a war and is importing their enemy’s soldiers and paying their way once they arrive. The people they are allowing to flood over their borders are incapable of operating in the technologically advanced working world which exists in Europe today and this will ultimately take Europe backwards at least two, three, ten centuries once Islam has taken control. This Islamization is taking place largely in Western Europe as many in Eastern Europe are just recovering from their existence of oppression under the Warsaw Pact leadership which was a slave to Russia, then called the Soviet Union. These nations just recovered their freedom and will take a while, but with some assistance will become the new Byzantine Empire; and the Western Roman states of France, Germany and Spain will fall to Islam. History may not actually repeat itself, but if one would step back and take a skewed look, it sure does rhyme.

 

European Reproductive Rates

 

So, we are left with the United States and Eastern Europe and possibly the Anglophilic World which will include Britain as the United States fifty-first state, or some reasonable facsimile thereof. The United States has an advantage that her “refugees” will mostly come from south of the border and bring a Christian ethic with them. Many are far more religious than the average coastal citizen of the United States happens to be. The heartlands of the United States still hold tenuously to religion for the meantime but as the central cities grow, the religious will become a minority even in these areas. From what can be figured, city life first robs one of the ability to do for themselves such that if something breaks, they need to call somebody to repair anything. On the farm, you usually cannot wait four or five hours, let alone a day or two, without things functioning, so if it breaks, you fix it or perform something which resembles fixing it. Either way, the item will be being used again in as short a time as possible. The south of the border may press the United States to become bilingual and have a second official language of Spanish, but it could be far worse and one need only look to Western Europe to see that worse. There is something which would make both the United States and the most sickly parts of Europe recover their lost mojo, and that was part of President Trump’s speech in Poland. The mainstream media mocked the speech as being racist and homophobic and a laundry list of other leftist complaints, but what they cannot argue is that it provided exactly the bromide required from the West for it to survive, a return to religion, Hashem, and family and by family he was talking about children and having sufficient children to grow the economy and population.

 

The illness of the West is the over leftism which has taken hold of much of the political body, the media, education, entertainment and too much of what passes for thinking. The latest is a call again from the ecological world police for people to stop having babies, as this will repair the world. Sitting in their megalopolis, they claim there is no more room and that people need to thin the herd. They really should get outside their little box and see the countryside or drive across Nebraska and then tell us there is no room. Ask the Russians if they are running out of room or even the Chinese who mostly reside in less than twenty percent of the available land. Even in Europe, there exist wide-open spaces which remain pristine wildernesses. The main objective of the leftists is the destruction of Western Civilization which they view as a historic mistake and along with Western Civilization, they want an end to the Judeo-Christian ethics and morality. They desire to build their hedonistic utopia upon the ashes of Western Civilization and have been working in this direction for years. The first attempt was with the Nazis and then the Communists and now it is the multiculturalists and environmentalists and a whole list of “ists” capped off with the Islamists who the leftists believe they will co-opt Islam once the West has been destroyed and the Jews and Christians removed from the human body. Hitler stated his disdain for Jew and Christian alike and blamed them for morality and conscience and swore to rid the world of both (see video below). This is what drew the leftists such as Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, George Bernard Shaw, Francis Crick, Breckinridge Long, Francis Galton, Alexis Carrel and the rest of the elitist eugenicists.

 

 

They are completely unaware that they will be amongst the first people Islamists will remove from the gene pool, as they believe everything which is an anathema to a religious Muslim. They top the lists of who deserves to be sent directly to the hell-fire, do not pass go, do not collect anything. They do not even rate as Dhimmis as that would imply a protected status but the leftists would be seen as idolaters or worse, atheists. Islam also uses eugenics but uses belief and surrender to the elite leaders of Islam as the measure of worth. Not a Muslim, then at best you can be a kept person allowed by the grace of your Islamist betters to continue and share air with them. But you must give up your seat to a Muslim, never walk on the same sidewalk as the gutters will do for you, and forget having a say in court, you have nothing to add and countering a Muslim is punishable by death. Any person permitted in an Islamic society who is not a follower of Islam and has not surrendered their minds and wills to Islam is considered a Dhimmi and thus has accepted and admitted to their inferiority. Sure, you can refuse Dhimmi status but then the punishment would be immediate and brutal, you would be put to death as an unbeliever who refused to acknowledge their betters and thus an insult to Allah and Islam, there is no worse crime unless you happen to be a Jew; being a Jew is the worst crime. For examples simply look around the Islamic world and any place where Islam borders Christianity, as in Africa as noted in Part I yesterday, and you will find strife, terrorism, bombings and some form of warfare and this includes much of Europe and Israel. What you will see inside Islamic nations with any sizeable Christians is their slow erasure through whatever means prove necessary. One might then question our proposed concept that being a Jew was the worst criminal outrage. It is and these nations where the Christians are being brutalized; one, if they check, will find no or virtually no Jews as they have already been dealt with and are no longer any means a threat as their numbers have been depleted to where they will crease to be, if they have not already. This is what awaits those countries importing Islam into their bosom believing they will adapt to Western Civility, do not hold your breath, use it freely while you are allowed, it will be remedied the only way Islam knows how and there is nothing one can do when their leaders surrendered to Islam already in exchange for wearing their chains lightly. Fortunately, United States Founding Father and patriot stated this in reference to those who did not feel the weight of the British yoke as too much to bear, he gave them final advice as to his view of their love for the chains of servitude, so allow us to close with a quote from our friend of freedom, Samuel Adams.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Selective Considerations by Leftist Women

 

It is known that the feminist movement is very closely attuned to those threats to women in our societies. Any male who steps out of the straight and narrow is quickly brought before the leftist corrective attitude adjusters who demand complete and total compliance. It initiates demands that one become complacent and performs the required mea culpas admitting their serious transgressions. One would believe that this was a consistent series of demands that are universally applied in all situations. Apparently, that is a false assumption. One must understand that these universal laws for appreciating and understanding how one is permitted to interact with those of the fairer sex are not universal as Islam is permitted a pass and is permitted any treatment of women as they have established rules which must be respected. Why are the definitions of Islam sacrosanct while those of Judaism and Christianity are forced to meet constricting definitions of the new age cult of politically correct gender interaction, functions and restrictions? The answer is simple, Islam meets the requirements of the new masters of our societies while Judaism and Christianity are but former rulers of all that is correct and that which is not, but now are tired old religions no longer appropriate to our modern societal needs. The masters of all that is holy and that which is not have a predilection for Islam as it provides those things that society desires above all other choices, iron force of power over function.

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani

The proof of this preference to excuse all the political misguided oppressions over women posed by Islam became undeniably apparent in a recent Senate Homeland Security Committee and Governmental Affairs on the Islamism Treats. The two women who were requested to present the subject for that day’s discussion were Asra Nomani and Ayaan Hirsi Ali talking of the detrimental treatment of women under Islamist rule, under Sharia (entire committee meeting video can be viewed below). These women are two of the most qualified people on the planet on this subject both through their educational experience and through their real life experience having been brought up in strict Muslim families and having suffered the various deprivations first hand. The two women come from conservative and strict though separate Islamic communities with Ayaan are from Somalia and Asra is from India. Both of them were born into deeply conservative Muslim families. Ayaan is a survivor of female genital mutilation and forced marriage. Asra defied Sharia by having a baby while unmarried. They have both been threatened with death by jihadists for things they have said and done throughout their careers where both have bravely spoken truthfully of Islamic practices. Ayaan cannot appear in public without armed guards. One would think that these two women would be taken seriously, especially when speaking of their first hand experiences as well as their extensive studies and research which they have carried out once free of the iron grasp of Islam where they had basically been chattel to be traded or killed as seen fit by their male masters.

 

 

The four Democrat women Senators attending the aforementioned committee hearings were California’s Kamala Harris, North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill. They were remarkably silent, well, except for Senator Claire McCaskill who, taking exception to the entirety of the hearings and specifically the targeted theme, stated, “Anyone who twists or distorts religion to a place of evil is an exception to the rule. We should not focus on religion.” What did have her “worried” was that the hearing was organized by Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin. She further “underline that” the only questions asked of them about Islamist ideologies came from Republicans Senator Johnson and his colleague, Senator Steve Daines from Montana. These were amongst the points brought out in an editorial from The New York Times authored by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani.

The two women further explained in their article that they were just as invisible to the Mullahs at the Mosque as they were invisible to the Democratic women in the Senate. They queried as to whether perhaps Senators Heitkamp, Harris, Hassan and McCaskill are simply uninterested in sexism and misogyny as women’s issues. It was noted that these ladies of the Senate had, in the past, given their outspoken support of critical women’s issues, such as the kidnapping of girls in Nigeria and campus sexual assault, that is far from the case. The truth then has to be that when it comes to Islamic treatment of Muslim women, the Senators have no grievances. It very well may be what Asra Nomani said in Georgetown in her conversation with Jewish Civilization Professor Jacques Berlinerblau sponsored by The Georgetown Review where she stated, “We’re still caught in a tribal culture.” What a sad commentary that honestly, the truth may be that though the Democrats believe and feel for the women; yet must not professionally appear to take issue with anything critical of Islam in general and only take issues with acts of terrorism.

 

 

So, it is terrorism bad and Islam innocent. When we look at things this way it describes and explains much about Democrat treatment of Islamic issues generally. They will decry Islamist terrorism but ignore everything else about Islam which if such should be seen committed by any other religious group, then they would be outraged. We know, where is the example? Well, it just so happens there is a glaring one. In Islam men are permitted to marry up to four women with certain provisos such as the approval of their first wife, which is unlikely to be problematic, but Mormons are not granted a pass on this as in this ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Clark Waddoups makes it clear that neither fundamentalist Mormons nor anyone else has an inherent right to multiple marriages. There have been articles and specials on daytime “talk” television shows of polygamous marriages without these men being charged and, from our limited knowledge, the majority claim Islam as their religion. The reality is in the United States, now that same-sex-marriage has been all but generally legalized, the next targets are polygamy and polyandry, or multiple marriages. After that, the push will be to demand for communal marriages with other combinations that include multiple partners of both sexes and possibly sexualities. Beyond such we do not even wish to speculate as it starts getting beyond weird and into disgusting, though we did wonder whether the Japanese man who claimed to be in love with a fine ceramic mannequin was permitted his marriage.

 

Islam has been given a pass on many of the practices permitted by the Quran for reasons we have spoken of before and plan to continue that debate. The reason is that it is different from Judeo-Christianity and has a very separate structure and that makes it something the leftists believe they can hijack and use for their own political aims. Their desire, as we pointed out a few days ago in our article, “But it is All Relative These Days,” the driving force behind much of leftist political war is for the return to what they believe is a more natural life for the human animal, barbarism. They wish to return to a tribal mentality where strength will be defined by their parameters allowing for their elites to rule over fiefdoms and a return to the Middle Ages with royalty and courts of power with positions assigned, though they will likely craft new titles, which will modernize the theme. Their idea is for a smaller population allowing for pockets of civilization surrounded by pristine wilderness, which will be legally made out of bounds like hunting the King’s deer in stories like Robin Hood, and actual laws passed in jolly old England. They have properly noted that Islam is a vertical aligned hierarchy, which is very different from Judeo-Christianity, which believes in a middle class, which have equal rights and a controlled political class, which is chosen by the people. This is what they desire to be rid of, the need for elections as they can go seriously wrong, as in this last election, or so they keep telling us. The leftists desire real and uncontestable power where they can pass all the ecological nonsense, which they believe, is necessary for the continued health of their Earth goddess, “Gaia.” Their brave new societal structure will use electric vehicles because nobody will be permitted to drive beyond the range of their cars, a paltry hundred miles or so. All travel between ecological fiefdoms will be by travel permit and such permits will be far and few between. The people will be relegated to a second-class life if they are fortunate. There will be three main classes; the hierarchy, which will consist of the chosen few and those fortunate to buy into their esteemed position; the technical class, which will reside within the city walls and be well provided for and may even attend some of the royal functions if they earn it through proper groveling; and those relegated to the outskirts who will have menial laborious positions or assist with the farming which will use high yield-small area farming technics such as hydroponics and genetically modified crops. Needless to point out, there will be the outliers who will reside in scrublands which the elite royalty believe is beyond salvage where they will grow GMO free food with free range animals such as chickens, sheep, cattle, pigs and other wildlife. These will be permitted because they will manage these lands in a natural way, natural being the optimum word.

Islam works currently, as there is no other force challenging Judeo-Christianity. Before Islam there were the Communists of the USSR and before that there were the Fascists who had the perfect centrally planned society and also desired to return humankind to a state of barbarism as promised by none other than the toast of the town with such supporters as William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Graeme K. Howard, Andrew Mellon, Henry Ford, Prescott Bush, and Thomas J. Watson, before 1938 and that whole Czechoslovakia affair. There were a plethora of American companies in with the fascists of Europe including, but not limited to, US Steel, Alcoa, DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil, Ford, ITT, IBM, National City Bank, Bayer Co., General Aniline Works, Agfa Ansco, Winthrop Chemical Company and General Electric. There was also the small matter of the publication of Henry Ford’s infamous writings in a four part publication called “The International Jew” This was just part of the entirety of the alignment of even the United States Department of State and other departments with some rumors of it reaching into the White House under Franklyn Delano Roosevelt.

The history of the Progressive Left is one of always seeking to find some means of compromising the Constitution of the United States because of claims that there was too much Christianity and Judaism included in its drafting. The belief was that the Founding Fathers were too religious and believed too deeply in G-d and thus their entire Constitution was mired and confounded by Jewish input and too much dependence upon morality and G-d. The Progressives also believed that the power being granted to the people was a mistake as the people were poor and ignorant because otherwise they would be wealthy and educated. The Progressives believed that only those with a proper education from a proper university, also particular universities, were worthy of ruling and making the decisions necessary for the government to function. Allowing the people to elect Congress and the President meant that at crucial times they could choose the wrong people, not only that, but often the wrong type of people, and they had numerous examples of such people being elected. Power, according to the Progressives and the Leftists had to be removed from the people and handed to their betters. That was what led the Progressive left to find great company with the Fascists and then the Communists and now Islam; each has a structure, which allows for power to be centralized and independent from the desires and voting of the people. Also as part of the Progressive left and the leftists of today is rampant anti-Semitism, something that somehow has never prevented many secular Jews to join these leftists in their desire for absolute power. What is really unbelievable is that these secular Jews who agree that the Bible, like the Constitution, is simply old, dated, out of touch and useless for ruling in a modern world. These secular Jews were the ones who claimed that Hitler did not mean it when he said the Jews were a scourge on society, they simply would excuse this as his meaning those religious Jews, those crazy Jews who were different, were unassimilated. Certainly, he did not mean the secular Jews as they were good Germans and had served in the Great War right alongside of Hitler and his followers. Well, as it turns out, Hitler meant all the Jews including those secular Jews. Meanwhile, in Russia we had the secular, university educated Jews supporting Communism as the cure to societal ills. Of course Marx, Engels, Trotsky, Lenin, and their Communist friends were not anti-Semitic, after all Marx and Trotsky were university assimilated Russians before they were Jews. They would hardly ever be found entering a synagogue and were not seen as Jews as much as Russian Communists by their comrades. They were part of the Revolution and thus were not like those shtetl Jews. Those shtetl Jews lived separate and in ghettos and were ignorant and uneducated. They lived as the Jews did back in biblical times, dressed all funny with heads covered and the strings hanging out, they looked absolutely comical, not like the cosmopolitan Jews of the cities. And under Lenin and ever more so under Stalin, they found out that to an anti-Semite, any Jew was a shtetl Jew.

The Leftists of today will prove to be no different from their Progressive, fascist supporting, Communist supporting, and now Islamist supporting comrades of the Revolution. These leftists were called Progressives in the 1020’s and 1030’s until World War II gave the title Progressive an anti-American taste, and rightfully so. This was understood by the Progressives, so one could not find a progressive come the mid 1940s and on through the 1950’s, 1960’s and the 1970’s as the name had become poison. They changed into a new and beautiful butterfly with the new title of Liberals. This upset Libertarians and Classical Jeffersonian Liberals because it tainted their names, especially the latter of the two. Now a Classical Jeffersonian Liberal had to identify specifically and then add that they were not at all like those calling themselves liberals who had nothing in common with liberty. They stuck with the title of Liberals until some point during the time of President Obama when Hillary Clinton decided to distance herself from her former self and the liberals she had stood with because she had noticed that Liberal had become poisonous. Hillary Clinton came out stating that she was an early Twentieth Century Progressive Hillary stated plainly that, “Progressive has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century.” Yep, she had ditched liberal in 2007 and returned to being a Progressive, and not just any progressive, but an early 20th century Progressive. She was counting on nobody being alive who remembered who and what were the early 20th century Progressives were. Well, with the Internet and an ounce of curiosity, one can trace the early Progressive movement and realize that it was no different than the Liberals of the 1960’s and 1970’s. The main difference is now the Progressives instead of Fascists or Communists; they are romancing Islamists, just not terrorism, yet.

Obama Setting Stage for Next Foreign Policy Confrontation, Israel

 

There has been a long list outlining the apparent policy from the White House from even before Candidate Obama won the nomination to the recent flood of reports each setting an even longer path of quotes with some stretching the line beyond credulity. The favorite around here has been Newsmax quoting Israel National News quotes alleged from Ma ‘an News references to a story out of Kuwait that American air commanders from all branches to defend Iran from any Israeli air strikes even if such defense results in their need to shoot down Israeli warplanes. We like to simply take things back to their roots from the outset where one of candidate Obama’s foreign policy advisors, United States National Security Advisor to former President Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who stated and pushed the policy while campaigning with great enthusiasm called for during the 2008 campaign for the United States to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran quoted as stating in an interview with the Daily Beast, “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?”

 

 

Zbigniew Brzezinski

Zbigniew Brzezinski

 

 

Brzezinski’s antagonism and visceral hatred of all things Israel had led to many surmising that his deep rooted hatred was broader than just Israel but also included any Jews who opposed his Israel positions liking them to traitors who should be ignored at best and prosecuted and exiled at the worst. He had continued his argument bringing up an exceedingly sensitive subject in another quote stating, “We have to be serious about denying them that right. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a ‘Liberty’ in reverse.’” Other reverberations of this theme have been rumored to have emanated from unofficial references from the White House though nobody should expect such a policy to ever be announced nor for orders to be made overt and obvious. The command one is most likely to be found as incriminating would be an alert to the possibility of aircraft overflying air areas of responsibility and the emphasis that such passage be strictly denied. Such an order leaves the commanders free to use whatever level of deterrence they deem necessary after ascertaining the number of aircraft, their formation, likely national origin, expected or announced targets all weighed against standing orders and previously given orders pertaining to such situations.

 

In the meantime it has been made obvious to every Democrat Senator and Representative from the Senate and House of Representatives that the choice before them has little to do with Iran or the Iranian nuclear weapons program or even the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) but weather you stand with the United States and its Commander in Chief or does one choose to stand with a foreign government which has opposed the President of the United States at every turn and sought to undermine American credibility and resolute stance to enforce the laws of the United States and its Constitution which obligates the United States to enforce Security Council Chapter Seven Decrees and all they imply. Even more simply stated, each Senator and Representative must decide if they stand with the United States and its stand with the Security Council or do they stand with Israel and thus prove their loyalty to a foreign government and are potentially a traitor to their country in what could be seen as a time of open conflict. The choice has been laid out so simple that even a member of Congress could figure it out without needing a number of aids to explain it; do you support the United States or the Jews, despite the fact that American Jews support the President in greater percentages than does the remainder of the population. The Jews must necessarily be thrown under the bus as being suspected agents of a foreign and hostile nation, the Jew amongst the nations, Israel. Make no bones about it or explanations of how such is not possible or even our favorite which is right at this moment in their history becoming their position of desperation despite all the evidence to the contrary; they are exclaiming in their self-delusionary state that, “It can’t happen here.”

 

That concept of, “It can’t happen here,” requires some explaining to those not familiar with its origins. It was a part in Fiddler on the Roof and included in that story because that story is three stories in one. The first is simply a story which incorporated some realities of those times. A story of the assimilations through the changes to ‘tradition’ through Tevye and Golde and their traditional arranged marriage to their first daughter’s marriage to one of their community by choice, to next daughter’s marriage to a Jew who was secular, to the last daughter marriage to a non-Jew. The final story is how the Jews assimilated but is still the Jew in their nation and as such, despite their belief of being an accepted member of the society, a friend, as the ‘head constable’ explains to Tevye, “I only tell you this because I like you, you’re a good man Tevye and I thought you should know,” about the coming Pogrom. The Jews at the end of Fiddler on the Roof are all shocked as they had come to believe after living in Anatevka for a number of generations, “It can’t happen here.”

 

From in Egypt, where “It can’t happen here” initiated, when they first became slaves to the Babylonian exile and Persian Empire, Greek, Rome and lastly in more modern times over the past Century plus a few years, the Czars, the Communists, the Nazis, the numerous other European nations when the Nazis provided the perfect cover, the “What could we do, we were conquered,” excuse. There were records from the Nazi files how the French, Belgians, Polish and others when the Nazis demanded so many Jews the townsfolk, the neighbors, not all but many, often the majority, rounded up twice as many Jews as demanded and pleaded, “take these as well.” The story is always the same, “These are our neighbors.” “We are accepted here.” “They mean those other Jews, we are doctor, lawyers, judges, in the Parliament and whatever other excuse and then the chorus line, “It can’t happen here.” Then the final realizations and the shocked “How could this happen to us, we were so sophisticated, successful, accepted and members of the community, respected…” but lastly you know what they were; Jews, Jews first, Jews last and Jews always.

 

In all too many cases after World War II when the emaciated but surviving Jews returned home they were not met with open arms, with pleadings of forgive us; they were met with pitchforks and worse and chased from their former home towns because how could they be accepted when everything they owned including their homes and shops had been divided up amongst their neighbors. It was easier to chase them off or even murder them after all, they must have died in the camps it would be said. When they were met and told honestly that the town had moved on and so should they, you want to know where they were told to run to? To Israel, go to your homelands in Israel, that was what they were told, and many tried but there the British were rationing the number of Jews who could legally make return to Israel, to make Aliyah. A paltry seventy-five thousand a year were being permitted entrance. Want to know where some of the Jews being refused entrance to Israel and had nowhere else to turn were held by the British? You probably already knew, the concentration camps, the very camps the Nazis held them in became their refugee camos when Cyprus overflowed with Jewish refugees. And after the British had let a number in, then the Arab nations made life difficult to unbearable to simply evicting their Jews. Many were expelled by one means or another, almost another million Jews who made their way to Israel and how many others to Europe or the United States, who knows exactly?

 

These Jews were resented initially but were accepted and are approaching full equality as the two separated Jewish communities once again intermarry with each and the other and a new set of bondings between Ashkenazim and Sephardim Jews such that in the not too distant future Israel will have but one Chief Rabbi instead of the current two. The other choice would have made the insanity worse as a third Chief Rabbi would be necessary for Jews where their parents were from opposing camps like myself where my father was British and therefore Ashkenazim; he was sent to fight in Burma and met my mother in Bombay and thus he married a Sephardim and presto, a mixed Jew with a foot in each world and customs from where only Hashem knows for sure.

 

The irony is that the Europeans and the Arab and Muslim nations of the MENA Region (Middle East and North Africa) all spat the words of “Why don’t you just go home to Israel,” into their faces. The sarcasm is their thinking living as a Jew in Israel would be their punishment when to the Jews, any and all Jews, “Next Year in Yerushalayim” is a dream come true, dreams of two thousand years come true. Those expelling us and claiming to force the Jews to Israel being used as a threat, missed the fact that it is the Jewish dream to live in Israel. To tread the dusty narrow streets in Old City Jerusalem, and to feel the joy of being in Israel despite the threats, despite any hardship, despite what others thought such a decree meant punishment, is our dreams realized. And just as Torah predicted, a nation built in a single day, Israel. On May 14, 1948, there was no Israel and at dawn of the next day there is Israel stretching from the shores all the way across the Judean Hills and half the way across the Jordan valley trimmed by the river, the very river Joshua led the first Israelis and still standing are the broken and crumbled walls of Jericho and the jewel atop the central hills lies Yerushalayim, our first and only true love, Jerusalem.

Still we have brothers and sisters remaining out there, the not Israel and the place where it can happen again and is starting to happen again. We can hear the cries starting with the Rabbis, we can hold on to that we built, we will be protected, the government has laws, the rule of law is our protector. There is but one rule of law that will protect any Jew and that is Torah and Torah will only live and rule eventually in Eretz Yisroel. The Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine just a few short weeks ago was crying out that, ‘That can’t happen here,” and, “This is our home. This has been our home, these are our neighbors; they are good people.” Then it comes, the first note of that familiar refrain where the first chief of security in a town or city pronounces they cannot be made responsible for protecting the Jews. That one of the towns in war-torn Ukraine made this statement is almost understandable, that a town in Sweden also made this comment is far more troubling but that statement was made by the last police chief just before he was relieved of duty and a new chief of police who at least claims he can protect all in Malmo. That phrase, that feared phrase renouncing the responsibility for protecting the Jews as it has become hopeless to stand against the wave of oncoming hatreds which has possibly even infected some in the police though rooting them out would be problematic, it is so much easier to toss the Jews before those demanding human sacrifice, demanding human blood, demanding Jewish blood. It is a familiar face for those who know its history and we have met this face before, but before we were powerless and could not take up arms. Not any more as we have Israel and there we do make our stand once more and this time it should prove permanent. Baruch Hashem!

 

But what is about to start in the United States will sound ludicrous and nobody will dare predict the monster which lurks in the fog of the future. Very few are capable of actually seeing through that fog and pierce the path that the world will take but almost anyone might claim to have a clear prediction of what is coming. Anything we claim is to be seen comes from a study of what has happened before, how those times played out, what their correlation could potentially hold for the present situation. Every repeat of history is not absolute but more like the next refrain from a poem, we know the rhyming scheme; we know the meter and all that remains is to flush out the words, the actions, the intentions to come. The three most interesting communities come from, obviously the United States’ and a little less obviously France which has the second largest Jewish community outside of Israel and the third is a bit of a surprise as it is Britain.

 

France is an easy prediction and we might as well cut to the chaff, France will eventually do what France has always done. During the Inquisition the French Monarchy surrendered the French Jews, later after the French Revolution the two sides of the revolution did agree on one item, the Jews had conspired against them. They both agreed the Jews held too much power and wealth and were obviously in league with the monarchy, the same monarchy which arrested and executed Jews in higher quantities compared to their percentage of the population. When the two winning factions from the revolution turned on each other, both sides decided that the Jews supported the other side and sent a high percentage fleeing or being executed. The fact that a percentage of Jews were fleeing meant that all Jews were guilty as suspected and charged and could never prove their innocence. Such remained an undertow within French elite and once again came to the fore in the Dreyfus Affair where Captain Alfred Dreyfus was accused of treason serving as the sacrificial lamb for a nasty intrigue amongst the General Staff. He was found guilty and sentenced to life served on the infamous Devil’s Island Prison Colony where he was held in solitary confinement and was eventually manacled to his bed which was nailed to the floor. Emil Zola took up the cause with his famous editorial article J’accuse. We have given this deeper coverage in our articles The Unkindest Cut of Anti-Semitism from August 12, 2015, and Israel Unfortunate Choice Ahead Due to State Department from Jul 19, 2015, as it has become a much more identifiable current in modern events.

 

The United States is a very different case as, outside of Israel, the United States with four and a half million Jews and possibly fifteen percent more, it has the highest population of assimilated Jews very similar to Germany, France and Poland amongst European nations including western Russia. The Jews then as now were politically active supporting the socialist revolution wherever they arose. We witnessed how the French treated many of their Jews who either ended up in one of the major cities or had moved out of France or been murdered by the revolutionary parties. Still, German and Polish Jews in the major cities were indistinguishable from their fellow citizens. The Jews in Russia had supported the Russian Revolution but were seen by the Communists as Bourgeois and by the Bourgeois as Communists. The Germans once the Nazis came to power saw the Jew as a Capitalist while during the short rule by the Weimar Republic the Jews were seen as socialists or Communists, as both were feared by the Republic. Of course once the Nazis climbed to power the Jews were initially seen as capitalists before taking on the role as inferior excuses for human beings and thus a plague upon society which must be destroyed. During the late 1920s and 1930s the Jews saw the changes and simply denied what they saw. They stuck with their story that “It can’t happen here,” They were considered an intricate and vital part of the society and held positions of power and respect. They were judges, lawyers, doctors, professors, teachers and Ministers in Parliament. That all changed and changed with viciousness unrivalled in history starting with Kristallnacht, “Crystal Night”, also referred to as the Night of Broken Glass. These were pogroms spread across all of Germany where Jewish shops, homes and even the Jews themselves were set upon and destroyed with many burned to the ground of the two day span of November 9–10, 1938. Then the Jewish Laws were enacted forbidding Jews holding positions of status and slowly but surely dehumanizing the Jews as the other in the society, the cause of unrest, distress, economic hardship, basically whatever your problem a Jew was the cause even to almost include even illnesses. The Jews were cast as the ones opposing progress, being greedy and taking more than their share of wealth, controlling the media, entertainment, and worst of all opposing the Führer Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler the Führer was one of the top three murderers of modern history exceeded by Mao Tse-tung and Joseph Stalin.

The rise of a visceral anti-Semitism started in the Beer halls and the halls of academia, specifically the college campuses throughout Germany. It reached across the Atlantic and took root in the United States with support from some surprising people who advocated euthanasia of those inferior and the infirm. This started with the Jews but did not end there as it spread to include millions of others, many for simply disagreeing with the method of perfecting the human race through selective breeding and euthanasia of those deemed inferior. They believed they could breed a master race of men over two meters in height, slender athleticism, blue eyed and other physical and mental attributes including the specific and approved political opinions. Amongst the Americans who were enamored with Herr Führer were Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh and other leaders of major American corporations all of which were instrumental in implementing the growth of the Third Reich by supplying parts, knowledge, systems of production and raw materials along with political support. They were all members of Eugenics societies and believed fervently that the human race could and should be improved by sterilization of the inferiors which included Jews and other minorities. They were supporters of Margaret Sanger and her organization which is known as today’s Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood initially sterilized blacks in huge numbers and remains today the number one murderer of minority children and gets away with it calling it a choice. Add to this the anti-Israel, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism rampant on many major universities and the parallels in the United States right now which has been aided by the Administration claims that the Jews are attempting to run the government and are trying to destroy all he has done and force the United States into a war with Iran to aid Israel at a grievous cost in money and troops, an insufferable cost in innocent American lives.

 

Britain and the United States share a trait that we can only hope grows and remains strong. Amongst the Evangelical Christians there is this movement which might just save the English speaking Western world. Christians for Israel in its different organizations and leaders is are interesting groups as for Jews it is refreshing to have others who worship Hashem, even if they have their own manner and structures, who are not judging their holiness and success with Jews by how many Jews they turned to Christianity and instead seek mutual strength and advancing the cause of an open Israel and especially Jerusalem and other holy sites for all peoples of any faith to visit and enjoy in their own constructive manner. These Christians also hold that the Jewish People becoming reestablished in our homelands as a good thing which will, in its own time, assist all who worship Hashem whether they be Jews, Christians or whatever religion they claim and all can share in the holy sites, cities, synagogues, temples churches and burial locations of the forefathers of each faith which spawned here in the Holy Lands. The one thing which is guaranteed, Israel is going to need all the help she can muster in the coming years as everything builds towards a fateful climax, may it be a blessing to all when it comes. In the interim, President Obama does not appear to be making things for the better but all in its good time and for every day of relative bliss let us all thank Hashem in our own way.
