As the World Spirals into Tighter Knots of Hatred

 

There is no denying that the world has become more coarse and hate-filled. Leading the groups of hatred is the usual, anti-Semitism. Oh, wait, most of these are not anti-Semitic as they merely discuss and are critical of Israeli policies and the treatment of the Palestinians and the denial of their basic rights. That is not actually anti-Semitism, it is merely honest criticism.

 

Really? Merely honest criticism you claim. May we ask if you have any criticism for any nation other than Israel? Is it only Israel which is deserving of your selective scorn? Well, let us look a little closer at the main complaints which are spread about Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. If you are willing to look at these claims from another angle and try to have an open mind, maybe we can realize some valid points.

 

One of the biggest complaints comes down to the fact that the Palestinian Arabs have not voted in a general election since 2005 despite Israel holding three elections since then. Well, you have a valid point that the Israelis have had three elections and the Palestinian Arabs have not voted in a general election since 2005. Have you ever bothered to find out why they have not voted in any general elections since 2005? Well, despite Israeli elections, the Palestinian Authority has cancelled elections for their Parliament and for President at every opportunity when elections were scheduled. Every time some problem has cropped up making election impossible. One of the favorite reasons is because the Palestinian Authority controls areas in Judea and Samaria and Hamas controls Gaza and they just do not get along that well. Another difficulty which may have some bearing on the lack of elections is that Mahmoud Abbas knows that he would fail in retaining his position as President of the Palestinian Authority which could lead to his being removed as Chairman of the PLO and the leader of the Fatah Party which gives him the triple crown of power over the Palestinian Arabs in the areas Fatah controls. Meanwhile, in Gaza there are two groups, Hamas (often working with Iran despite being mostly Sunni or Muslim Brotherhood) and Islamic Jihad (another Shia arm of Iran in their threats upon Israel) who have an arrangement which allows Hamas, the stronger of the two, to choose whomever they desire to be the leader and head of the government. Currently that position is held by Yahya Sinwar (the former commander of the Hamas military wing and proof that there really is no difference between the military and political wings except in the eyes of most Europeans). Since the position is by appointment of a ruling council whose members are largely a secret, elections are completely unnecessary as the leadership and support are appointed positions. And talking of Israeli elections, the Palestinian Arabs are not Israelis and thus are not a party to Israeli elections and just as foreigners do not vote in other national elections (such as the French do not vote in Italian elections and the Italians do not vote in French elections and neither Italians nor French vote in the American elections). So, the Palestinians have not voted in elections since 2005 is because their governing powers have decided that elections are simply too bothersome and thus none are being held.

 

One last comparative statement and then we will move along. Just as Mexicans and Canadians do not vote in American elections and Americans do not vote in Canadian or Mexican elections; Israelis do not vote in Palestinian Arab elections, be they under the auspices of Islamic Jihad, Hamas or Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Arabs do not vote in Israeli elections. We know what the next accusation will be, so you admit that the Palestinian Arabs cannot vote in Israeli election. That is true. So, you admit that Arabs are not permitted to vote. Everyone see the logical leap making one huge assumption, namely that all Arabs are Palestinians and thus all Arabs are denied the vote. This is the fallacy which is used all the time to prove Israel denies Arabs the vote. The slick slight of language equates all Arabs with Palestinian Arabs but Palestinian Arabs across the Arab world are denied the right to vote even if elections were held. There is a group of Arabs which make up almost one-quarter of the population and who do vote in Israeli elections as well as run for office and sit in the Knesset, the Israeli parliament and work in every profession in Israel (technically even Rabbi as there are Arab Jews in Israel who were or their relatives were thrown out of their Arab homelands within the first decade and a half after Israel was founded with the vast majority of these Arab Jews coming to Israel). The Israeli Arabs who are Muslim or Christian or any other religion all get to vote in Israeli elections as they too are citizens of the State of Israel. What many find surprising is to learn that according to the conventions under which Israel was provided to be founded by the League of Nations and the Mandate System, they were not required to allow anyone other than Jews the vote. They were required to provide economic rights, religious rights, social rights, humanitarian rights and virtually any other form of rights with one exception, they did not need to provide political rights to those within their borders who were not Jews. This was not and obviously is not Israeli law, but it was one option permitted the Jewish State which they decided not to adopt. Thus, the non-Jews in Israel have the exact same rights as the Jews and in some instances it appears they have rights denied most Jews, but these are not consequential to our discussion.

 

But this article is not going to rehash these arguments which are the backbone of the BDS Movement and are made entirely of fallacies. Instead, we are going to look at the rise in anti-Semitism and the concurrent rise of violence against Jews across Europe and in North America. The targeting of Jews has been spreading around the world as part and parcel of the leading wave of Islamist influences. In the United States it became policy in 1965 under the Hart Cellar Act. Under this legislation, immigration was switched from predominately European immigrants to areas which had less immigration previously which turned out to be used as a means for bringing Muslims to America as the preferred and target immigrants which were to be preferred. Dropped were requirements that one need learn English; any language would do as these special immigrants were to be placed together in special cities. This piece of legislation was heavily supported and all but personally walked through the Congress by Senator Ted Kennedy. The special immigration of these minorities who were minorities both as their racial definition as well as their religious preferences. The Arabs were defined as people of color despite the majority being as Caucasian as the average Norwegian. This was done for numerous reason amongst which was the programs which they would qualify for as people of color and thus an automatic minority and other benefits also permitted the government to provide them with housing thus by some miracle they were slowly introduced into the population centered by their nation of origin each resulting eventually in their becoming the plurality if not majority in numerous Congressional districts. Thus, there is now in the United States Congress Representative Rashida Tlaib who was elected from a district within Detroit but has claimed that she represents a constituency quite removed from those Detroit, Michigan neighborhoods which elected her to Congress as she has claimed that she is the Palestinian representative in the Congress. Take along side Representative Tlaib the other extrovert anti-Israel, anti-Semite Ilhan Omar as well as many anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic members of the Black Congressional Caucus and their ever present apologists such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi plus Steny Hoyer and there is the makings of an uncontroversial beginnings of an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel block within the United States Congress which has been growing over the past seventy years to the point where it is becoming a danger for both the Jews of the United States and all of the people of Israel, Jew and Gentile alike.

As if the growing hatred for Israel and the Jews within the Congress and add to this the seemingly ingrained anti-Israel activities and positions taken by what appears to be a majority of those who control the State Department and add in the trends following the same or similar trends across the nation and in Europe on the university and college campuses and the future is looking very bleak. According to, in English literature, the character of Prometheus speaks the phrase: Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad in the poem “The Masque of Pandora,” and we are witnessing such madness spreading through the world’s populations. This is becoming increasingly observable in Western civilization which is actually very sad. Looking back throughout history, one notices that every great empire began their downward slide leading to their eventual collapse, every one of them began having streaks of anti-Semitism which marked their turning point. This should serve as a warning to the developed world that this sickness has always led to disaster for every civilization where the ills of anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish State feelings sets in. One would hope that people are capable of learning from history, but this is happening again and, in every country, there is at least one party, often two with one far right and the other far left, willing to accommodate the influx of an anti-Semitic and often anti-Israel group of immigrants. These political operatives appear determined to change the demographics and accept this poison simply because these immigrants will elect their candidates. They are going this route in the name of gaining power but they are trading their souls for power, never a good idea as it will always lead to ruin.

 

There are those who claim that there is little to worry about because these anti-Semites and anti-Israel individuals are too small a minority to really cause any problems. That is ignoring history as this always starts out with a vocal and determined minority who over time and using the same methods gain sufficient strength to seize power and destroy the target nation from within. The difference this time is that the efforts are not to transform one nation but to transform entire continents. The Arab world already controls the equivalence of an entire continent under their control now though it is not unified at this time. All it would take is the right charismatic leader with what will be taken as the plan and the Arab world could easily be brought to congeal around such a person. If this person also takes Europe along with the Arab world and then you have a heavily armed body of nations brought together in an effort to then destroy Israel on their way to world conquest. What the world needs to awaken to is that Islam still is insistent that they are to rule the world and they are currently making their third or fourth drive for doing exactly that. We understand that the Western World which has fought two world wars has given up on the concept of one leader ruling the world unless it is through the United Nations. That in and of itself is frightening enough when one realizes that the General Assembly and all the disparate agencies of the United Nations are controlled by the Group of 77, a coalition of one-hundred-thirty-four developing nations which are led and willingly follow the Arab and Islamic world to the point that they chose Mahmoud Abbas to be their chairperson. This group has proven to be highly antagonistic towards Israel and have tended to largely vote as if they were a single unit. This makes them the gatekeepers at the United Nations.

The world is teetering on a knife’s edge with another great world sweeping conflagration waiting for when the world topples from that perch. Such a war could start over any small item just as World War I was initiated over an assassination, or it could begin as a plan by even a single nation deciding they are ready to enact their plan for domination and world conquest such as World War II began. Add in China, which many a far eastern expert has stated they have been building their military around a single concept, the ability to win the war with the United States for control of the Pacific and then the world. Be it China or Islam (namely Iran), and either way the world cannot afford to pay the price of such wars. When part of the plan is to use EMP weapons and you are talking about the mass extermination of the nation so struck, and should anyone be so foolish as to use such a device on the United States and the world would witness mass starvation with only the nations capable of feeding themselves surviving. Additionally, there are those who claim that it is entirely conceivable that nuclear weapons will be used to eradicate entire nations and then there would be the counter attack which would devastate the initiator of such an exchange. The resulting contamination by nuclear fallout and much of the world would suffer catastrophic population losses leading to potentially our world reverting to the technological level of the mid seventeenth century with all the wonders of such a brutal life spent at subsistence farming for most of the world population. One can only question is it worth destroying the world and any future it might potentially reach with the coming advancements in exchange for ruling over an impoverished and technologically reverted world. Some of those seeking to spread their rule to the world would tell you that if that was the result, then it was the will of their divine being. The one good thing is that should you reside within a few hundred miles of any major population center, which is most of Europe, both coasts of the United States, the entire Great Lakes region and the coastlines of much of the world, then your suffering will be minimal as the initial exchange of nuclear missiles will make quick work of such regions. We can only hope that sane minds will take over before the insanity gets too far, but in the meantime, pray for the Messiach as such an intervention is the best hope for avoiding the follies of man.

Silence for the Sheeple

 

The media is not so much in the business of informing the people as they are in pushing agendas, disguising unfortunate truths, misinterpreting informative statements, concealing facts and allowing reality to hide behind the smoke they are publishing. This has never been more true than the current storm attempting to dilute or dissolve the truth spoken by top designer Karl Lagerfeld speaking on the show, “Salut les Terriens! (Hello Earthlings!) Show” on the C8 Channel on November 11, 2017, attacking German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Mr. Lagerfeld has been libeled by private television broadcaster RTL in its magazine Exclusiv where RTL journalist, Marc Sterzenbach, was asked why Lagerfeld made the remarks. The remarks in question from the show “Salut les Terriens!” by Karl Lagerfeld were made intending to be critical of Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open borders policy where he stated, “One cannot, even if there are decades between them, kill millions of Jews so you can bring millions of their worst enemies in their place. I know someone in Germany who took a young Syrian and after four days said ‘the greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust.’ The young man was thrown out.” Responding to this, Marc Sterzenbach stated, “Indeed Chanel is in the hands of a Jewish family, the Wertheimers.” Well, that explains it, those Jews whining again. And of all the Jews to be whining, one working for one of those Jews who own the world and control everything. It was the usual ‘classic anti-Semitic cliché concerning the so-called “Jewish world conspiracy.” Jews have no reason to complain about the state of things as they make the world what it is. Much of the media came rushing to the defense of Chancellor Merkel and her program accepting Middle East refugees en-masse. RTL was defended by Jewish author Henryk Broder noting that, “Besides that, there are quite a few fashion and cosmetic firms which are in ‘Jewish hands’ that have never been noticed by RTL, nor has it disturbed anybody there.” Well, that must be the end of it.

 

So, the main objection had to do with the fact that Karl Lagerfeld worked for the Jewish owned Chanel and thus was overly sensitive to things and was biased against the policies of Angela Merkel who was being a good universalist humanitarian and obviously, Mr. Lagerfeld obviously suffered from deep Islamophobia. Almost universally, the commentary was about Karl Lagerfeld and his obvious biases and employment while, when mentioned, defending poor maligned Chancellor Merkel and completely ignoring the actual statement itself. Heavens forbid there ever be a serious discussion about the possibility that the unrestricted immigration from the Middle East, from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan and other MENA* nations has had on Europe. It is forbidden to mention the increase in sexual assaults on women so much so that the police refuse to even take reports as long as nobody is severely injured, as in hospitalized. Petty theft and simple robberies are also underreported as police attempt to avoid reporting any increases as that might require an explanation. Unfortunately, politics has replaced police reporting in much of western Europe, specifically in France, Germany, Sweden and the other nations which have taken in large numbers of the refugee population from the Middle East. Ever since the New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults in Germany were covered up until much later when it could be dismissed as “old news” and already discussed and dealt with. The reality is the problems caused by unrestricted and unfettered immigration from the Middle East not only have never been discussed, but have actually intentionally been shunned and silenced with anybody daring to mention such things being ridiculed and accused of being a racist or worse, an Islamophobe. The new group immune from any bad media, critical statistics, accusations or blame of any kind and anybody brazen enough to speak the truth is shouted down, insulted, misinterpreted and their message so garbled, mangled and even totally edited such that the truth is lost in translation, if translation can also be so mangled as was the message by Karl Lagerfeld concerning Angela Merkel and her continued policy of unhindered and unfettered immigration.

This German media refusal to permit any bad press for Muslim refugee immigrants along with Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open borders policy goes far deeper than the malicious and underserved maligning of Karl Lagerfeld and even swipes at Chanel for being Jewish owned, as it also permeated the recent coverage of the campaigns in the recent German elections. As reported here, the German government Censored the press, social media and Internet ahead of their elections in favor of the reelection of Chancellor Merkel. This could be the start of the end of German democracy. In an article titled Germans Lose Faith in the Fourth Estate it is made obvious that the people no longer trust their news media and see it as simply a mouthpiece for the government and Angela Merkel. Of course, there were articles of the massive forces using media manipulation against Chancellor Merkel which were the reason for the government to step in. Who were these nefarious evil-doers? Why, the Russians, who else? Then there were those meddling American Think Tanks and Foundations who were also trying to unseat Merkel. There was this report from a Polish think tank about the increasing censorship and control of social media, particularly over Merkel policies and the problems it may have spawned. There have been more recent studies which have revealed that government manipulation of the media as well as political parties using media tools to their advantage have distorted and falsified much of the media, especially the on-line media as reported here and here. Currently, it is Karl Lagerfeld getting the treatment in Germany as he committed the most serious of crimes, he spoke the truth about Angela Merkel, her open borders policies and the lack of vetting or even the slightest background checks and the effects it has had on German society. Sure glad we haven’t gotten on her majesty’s wrong side.

Europe Taking Israeli Price of Peace Path

 

In Israel back during the early days, before and immediately after the Oslo Accords, Israel would take the position officially that the deaths from terrorism were a price we needed to pay for peace. This mantra was echoed by the liberal and leftist politicians and much of the mainstream media in Israel and was accepted broadly by left-wing and leftist Jews across the United States. In Israel this mantra became to strike sour notes really fast when the Second Intifada was launched by Yasser Arafat claiming the lives of over a thousand Israeli civilians and tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of injured, many with debilitating and horrific wounds which left them crippled, disfigured, scarred and in mental anguish not just for years but for the remainder of their lives. The price Israel was asked to pay for peace by the left was what has led to the public turning to the right to govern as they promised not to accept such a price and claimed they would get a peace with dignity. That is where the problem arose and which the world refuses to accept, that the Arabs do not desire peace, they demand total victory and the Jews dead or gone. The European Union and most European governments refuse to accept such and instead blame Israel for the lack of peace. This has also been the driving force behind the United States means of reaching a peace demanding that Israel continuously make sacrifices and concessions for peace while not demanding any reciprocal sacrifices or concessions from the Arabs. The Europeans, United Nations and United States all historically have demanded that Israel meet one demand from Arafat and then Abbas after demand after demand every time there is a decision to drive the peace process forward. The problem is as long as the Arabs are gaining concessions for refusing to negotiate, they will continue to not negotiate and simply demand more concessions and wait for the United States in concert with Europe and the United Nations to force these concessions out of Israel. This has finally had the breaks applied and Israel is starting to resist the continued concessions. It remains to be seen whether President Trump will be different though, as we covered in our article “Will President Trump Really Demand Same Old Concessions of Israel?”, it initially appears that he is planning on at least initially demanding concessions of Israel. From there we will see but should Israeli Prime Minister make too many concessions he can expect his time as Prime Minister to be limited as the Israeli public has realized the fruitlessness of that game.

 

Europe has also taken the concept that terrorism is the price they will need to pay while their Islamic populations adjust to European philosophies and lifestyle. The last three months have seen major terror attacks striking in Berlin, London and Stockholm yet Europe continues living responding to these attacks as if stating, “Terrorism is simply something we need tolerate for now as our societal norms are stronger than Islamic terror.” I think we all know the Islamic terrorist response, “We love death more than you love life”. This was made obvious on numerous other occasions in Paris, London, Madrid, Zurich, Normandy, Nice, Brussels and on and on and the list will only grow until Europe disappears or stands up. Anybody with a modicum of common sense can figure out who will win this fight, and it is not European traditions. The problem goes so much deeper than attitude. Currently Europe is in the driver’s seat and if they were to return to what built Europe, then they could salvage their society and their way of life for their grandchildren. As things stand now, the average European born today should at least reach adult life before having their entire existence challenged by the forces of Islam, radical Islam, forcing them to either live in the shadows worried minute to minute what might befall them or fleeing to the United States or South America. Should the trends remain as they now stand, their children if born in Europe will be Muslims with traditional Muslim beliefs and not one whit of European traditions born of Judeo-Christianity.

The problem Europe is facing is theirs is an aging society which stopped having sufficient children to replace the population, let alone support their aging pensioners. In order to support their elderly and continue the engines of their economy, they brought in immigrants from what they call Asia but most of the world knows as the Middle East, the Arab world plus Turkey and many North Africa countries, the MENA Islamic community. Many of the nations, despite appearing to operate in normal fashion, have actually been failed states with marginal economies having many of their population eking out subsistence farming to survive. This left these immigrants educationally deficient for the European economic model with modern factories and high tech industries. But the problem when it comes to terrorism was not with these immigrants from years past but with their children who feel cheated and abandoned by their European governments and the converts to Islam who often were radicalized from the very start. This has caused a growing problem and with the latest surge of refugees these problems have only become exacerbated. The liberal and leftist governments across Europe were determined to make the refugee influx into their elixir to solve the growing economic problems and thus were invested heavily in refusing to recognize the growing problems. They took on the exact mantra which had been adopted by the liberal and leftist Israeli politicians, that terrorism would prove temporary and that with time the refugees and second generation Muslims would acclimate and blend into the population. Their mistake was they never took the necessary steps to incorporate the Muslim populations into their workforce or to educate and train them adequately and thus they left much of the Muslim population living in the slums where radicalization became to be viewed as a way out, the way to force the Europeans to grant them the solution which they view as Sharia. The problem with this is Sharia and European secular democratic multiculturalism are mutually exclusive and only one or the other can prove dominant. If Europe refuses to insist on retaining their democratic and secular culture, then Sharia will become the new normal and Europe as we know her will die a cruel and terrible death never to rise again, ever.

Israel realized this in time but Israel has an advantage, a higher reproductive rate which is sufficient for a growing society gaining in numbers amongst its Jewish and Christian populations. Israel, and not Europe, is the mainstay where Christianity is actually growing and healthy as is the Israeli religious Jewish population. Israeli secular left population suffers a similar but less severe fate as does the secular left populations suffers in Europe, a reproductive rate well below two children per woman. Replacement rate is somewhere between two-point-one and two-point-three children per woman and that is simply to sustain population numbers. The graph below shows the by nation numbers and what becomes immediately apparent is that the nations with the closest to replacement reproductive rates are the nations where there is also larger Muslim populations such as France, United Kingdom, Belgium, Finland, Norway and Sweden almost attaining replacement rate and their native population reproducing closer to one-point-five and with Turkey, an Islamic nation, actually attaining minimal replacement rate (and Ireland is unexplainable as usual but this time that is almost a good thing). Until Europe can reverse their sagging reproductive rates without taking in ever increasing immigrants, then the continent will continue to be a dying culture incapable of sustaining itself. Simply put, despite having a culture dripping with sexuality from every corner in its commercials, media, entertainment and almost every other means, they use that sexuality apparently purely for recreation and not for procreation. Unless the Europeans get serious and change their cultural attitude where everything is about the immediate pleasures and forget the future and return to their former nurture and natural society which had been based on Judeo-Christian ethics but does not necessarily need to return there, as long as they find some meaning which produces a future population to carry on what they have built. Anything less will bring to an end the Europe which has attained one of the more advanced cultures and civilizations known to mankind, a society now teetering on ruin.

 

European Reproductive Rates

 

Accepting terror deaths is not a future, caring about the future is the only future. That means the “now” culture must be placed in the dustbin of history or Europe will be placed in the dustbin of history. If the average European refuses to take even the slimmest of concerns for the future, then those now flooding into Europe will definitely give them no concern. We might ask whether they care about what they are leaving for their children, but there lies the problem, all too many Europeans are not having children at all. Having no children is the quickest path to extinction and Europeans are on that path as a lifestyle. The question the leadership of Europe must find the answer for is how to have an entire population made up largely of narcissistic childlike adults who refuse to leave the playpen into responsible adults who desire a future and offspring to populate and build it. Religion had been the driving force which made propagation a principle worth pursuing. What they are going to replace religion with is a mystery to us here as we remain attached to our religion. The saving grace in the United States is the share of the population who, if we can borrow a description used by President Obama, “cling to guns or religion” and could have added Bibles and children. The other saving grace is the main religion of the immigrants who are coming from south of the border is Christianity. Europe is importing a foreign culture which is incompatible with their historic culture and only one will survive unless Islam has a reformation and decided that the Mecca Quran should supersede the Medina Quran, and not the other way around as they now interpret abrogation. One of those pressing for just such a reformation is Egyptian President Sisi but he has friends who are fighting for the same thing, they are just rather less visible as they are not the leaders of the largest Arab Muslim population. We can only hope they can succeed where former attempts have failed.
