If Politics Trails Off into a Leftist Sunset

 

The trending became evident in the British 2017 elections where the Conservative Party of Theresa May lost thirteen seats while Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party gained thirty seats. As ominous as this may sound for the conservatives in Britain, the rest of the last election should have scared them to the bone as parties on the left generally gained seats in Parliament while the parties on the right lost seats in parliament. Additionally, polls show that Theresa May lacks that little something which excites the base to get out and vote. Since these elections, the whispers have claimed that should Theresa May continue to head the Conservatives, then they can expect that Labour Party will surpass them and form the next coalition. So, for argument’s sake and remembering the old saying that Irish writer Brendan Behan stated in 1960, “There’s no bad publicity except your own obituary notice.” The gains made by the Labour Party with the presumably questionable public commentaries and outrages over the problem with anti-Semitism in the Labour Party and with Jeremy Corbyn as their leader still resulted in impressive gains. Either these gains are proof of the above quote or because anti-Semitism is becoming more popular and a driving force which may produce political gains. We do not need to break into a sweat figuring out which was responsible for the Labour Party gains as it matters little. What matters are their gains which will likely continue, as the controversies over anti-Semitic problems within the Labour Party and with Jeremy Corbyn and these problems will result in coverage and a constant stream of their names being bandied about by the media. In the meantime, Theresa May will continue her style of steady and quiet leadership not rocking the boat very often and unless a crisis arises, she and her Conservative Party will not have near the media coverage of Corbyn and the Labour Party. Mathematical projections show that the next coalition could very readily place the Labour Party as the central party of the ruling coalition which would make Jeremy Corbyn the new Prime Minister. Where currently the next elections are scheduled to be on May 5, 2022, there is always a possibility that the coalition could collapse and elections come even earlier, thus this potential eventuality is worth discussing as a central part of the increasing anti-Semitism across much of Europe and even its acceptance politically.

 

The most obvious result of Jeremy Corbyn rising to become Prime Minister of Britain after some coming elections between today and May of 2022 would be a sharp turn in British political direction to the left. Such a result would potentially signal a leftist wave across the Western World. There is also the potential possibility that the Democrat Party will find a candidate to defeat President Trump in 2020 ending the rightward shift in the politics of the United States. This might actually make the rise of Jeremy Corbyn as a follow-on shift leftward rather than the initial step. The more likely result would be for President Trump to be reelected and then a Democrat winning the Presidency in 2024 following Jeremy Corbin. The year 2022 also will have a general election in France where it is possible that Emmanuel Macron will be reelected. As it is very likely that Marine Le Pen and her National Rally Party (formerly National Front) will likely once more represent the right political French electorate, this will again result in whichever of the left leaning to full leftist politicians will be the resultant winners. It will become that the person to follow Emmanuel Macron, assuming he does not win reelection, as his style is dry and quiet, much like Theresa May, will be the most populist with their relative political leanings being of less consequence. The political pendulum in much of Europe has begun moving back to the left in western Scandinavian and southern Europe, the region which has been deridingly called Old Europe. On the other end of Europe, the former Warsaw Pact nations, the pendulum is moving rightward and towards nationalism which has brought these nations and their leaders much scorn from the established mainstream media starting with the New York Times, AFP and BBC and moving across the remainder from these sources. This will lead to a bifurcated world making the United States elections of 2020 and 2024 potential focal points for the world while the British and French elections of 2022 the focal point of liberal Old Europe.

 

The truth is eventually the forces which shape much of the reality in our political world are largely of a desire to move the world leftward, install greater socialist programs, and move those nations they are able to influence into socialism and away from capitalism. One might ask why they would ever desire to force such a drift into socialism when capitalism has made so many wealthy by comparison to any point throughout the history of our planet and relieved so many populations from what is real and bitter poverty such as the poverty found in the third world. These elites are desirous of regaining their complete power over life and death of their subjects, the rest of us. While the Middle Class continues to exist, they do not have such complete power. Middle Class individuals act on their own, decide their own life choices, and often decide where they wish to live, who they desire to socialize with and have free time in which they engage in activities which are beyond the control of the elites. The elites were once the land-owners who held titles such as King, Queen, Baron, Baroness, Count, Countess and other titles who permitted the serfs to work their lands and these land-owners took most of their produce leaving them sufficient such that they likely would not die but also not have the energy to rise against their “betters” seeking freedom. The elites remember when freedom was a concept which was rare and the majority of people had no rights and even whether they had food and lived or died was decided by their nobles. These serfs were occasionally fortunate and one showed spirit and some abilities with weaponry and was placed into the noble’s enforcement guards and if they showed great valiance during times of conquest or in defense of their royal, they may be granted the rank of knight which carried with it privilege which often would be passed from father to son. These were the ideal days when the people were tamed and would never revolt or act in any way which was not in service of their “betters” who ruled them. The elites hope to return to that two tiered society once more.

 

This is part of the move for a guaranteed minimum wage with jobs promised by government and even if no work is found, the wage will still be paid. The elites realize that the Western developed world is coming closer and closer to a pivotal era. There are numerous ways this event or groups of events are named such as the “Singularity” or the “Age of Robotics” as well as “Artificial Intelligence” and finally the “Age of Total Information” which refers to the ability of the government and business world to have so much information that they will be capable of knowing virtually everything you will do before you actually do so such as in the book Minority Report. All of these ages have one thing in common, low employment and very high unemployment where the reason is simply the majority of the people will not have either the intelligence or the education to be capable of being able to perform and work which would make them receiving a salary higher than the guaranteed salary worthwhile. The reason is simple, the machines and computers will replace people in almost every line of work and further, almost all the jobs which exist today will no longer exist. This Age of Total Information will exist as we will be under surveillance everywhere and anywhere unless we take special efforts to find some place where we are not being surveilled. Even in your home you will be, at the very least, listened to, as your cell phone, even if it can be turned off, will still be able to be activated and the camera and microphone turned on. You can be careful and place your camera face down but the microphone will still be capable of listening to every sound anywhere in your home unless you are locking it in a special box suspended in the center and a vacuum formed by evacuating all the air. Then again, as in 1984 our devices could have built in cameras without out knowledge and be utilized to spy upon us. Further, if we are of sufficient interest to the powers that be, the technology is already available to monitor you almost no matter how far one might go to be off the grid and beyond detection.

 

The next thing which would make sense would be that when the Artificial Intelligence and robotics reach a point and merged with biology, the elites would then be capable to transfer themselves becoming a cyborg, a being with both organic and biomechatronic body parts. Their minds would, whether remaining as a biological brain or an imprinted brain onto a robotic AI specialized computer, remain and depending on their choices, possibly continue to change normally or be enhanced artificially while their physical bodies would have been replaced with a robotic body with vastly greater physical abilities and immortality would be achieved. Then there will be the ability to enhance oneself through biology altering one’s DNA or through other means. Children could be engineered to be the strongest, fastest, most intelligent beings possible through bioengineering. Many of these technologies are currently at the cutting edge either already here or soon to arrive. Manufacturing has already become largely automated and online sales has been computerized to such a point that these companies are getting very close to not requiring people as employees. Service positions including the fast-food industry will very soon be using robotics to cook and even serve your meal. There will likely be specialized locations, mostly restaurants, which will advertise that they employ human beings to serve you if you prefer to be waited upon by a human being; there will always be Luddites. The Police will be robots, the stock exchange will be automated, and if we are fortunate, the government will be run by an Artificial Intelligence replacing our elected officials who could be accused of artificial intelligence. People will be free to do whatever hobby they please and work will largely become something out of history.

There will be a select group who claim that no matter how advanced Artificial Intelligence becomes, there will always be just as many positions of employment which will require a human being and be beyond the ability mentally of any Artificial Intelligence. This theory holds that the human mind will always be found to be superior to any Artificial Intelligence as the imagination and ability of a human being to take two separate pieces of information and combine them to reach a third concept loosely attached to the first two concepts and because of the leap in logic, no Artificial Intelligence would be capable of such jumps of logic. Personally, our concern will be to really start to worry when we have Artificial Intelligence psychologists to serve other Artificial Intelligence units which have some psychosis. Imagining potentially psychotic Artificial Intelligence units which were designed by other Artificial Intelligence units and the factory making them designed by more Artificial Intelligence units and manned entirely by robotic units designed by Artificial Intelligence units all of these being twenty-four-thousandth generation of Artificial Intelligence designed units so that humanity has been so desperately left in the Artificial Intelligence’s dust that by comparison we might have the comparative intelligence of a dog, if that high. Once the Artificial Intelligence begins to design their own replacements, then within a few months, a year or two at the most, we will be at best their pets, so practice chasing a ball thrown unbelievably far. This world will become one where the Artificial Intelligence units will be responsible for not just keeping us alive, but growing our food, or at least printing our food, and providing everything we will require and we will be completely dependent on these Artificial Intelligence units who will soon consider us no more than ants unless we can advance our minds to retain an intelligence close enough to that of the Artificial Intelligence that they will always find people at the very least, amusing.

 

The question is can we as a civilization retain our economies and inventiveness long enough to reach this presumed nirvana. Whether it will actually be a nirvana is something which can be debated, but if we do not continue to defend modernity, then we may find it being deconstructed by fanatics who believe that our advanced society is filled with degenerative dynamics which must be destroyed and all temptations to commit evil destroyed. The following are considered to be evils and sins beyond forgiveness: music, dance, television, movies, videos, immodest dress, and any technology which does not serve their idea of a supreme being. Their world is one where all joy is to be denied oneself because life is supposed to be difficult and hard and life simply eking out an existence serving those who are exalted as religiously pious individuals and those closest to a supreme being. We have our own thought as to which would be worse and would prefer to cast our fates into the hands of the machines and simply pray we programmed them well.

Who Turns First, Britain or America

 

The United States and Great Britain both have conservative party leaders currently. Both Prime Minister May and President Trump have made mention of items concerning Israel. President Donald Trump stated early in his term when Prime Minister Netanyahu visited the White House, “With this visit, the United States again reaffirms our unbreakable bond with our cherished ally, Israel.” Speaking during events centered around the centennial celebration of the Balfour Declaration, British Prime Minister Theresa May stated concerning Arab and leftist calls for Britain to apologize for ever issuing the Balfour Declaration, “Balfour wrote explicitly that ‘nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.’ So when some people suggest we should apologize for this letter, I say absolutely not.” One would be justified in believing that Israel was in solidly with both Great Britain and the United States, and they would be completely wrong.

Currently Israel is in a period of grace with both nations and this will continue very probably for as long as the two parties, the Republican Party in the United States and the Conservative Party in Great Britain, remain in power. For the United States that means holding the Presidency and in Great Britain it gets a little more complicated and requires being the major Party forming a coalition which requires giving money and other favors to other parties sometimes leading to altering the government position on issues. But there will eventually be a change in which a party holds the office of power in both nations, then what? All we need do is look at what the opposition parties and the leaders currently believe and extrapolate. Almost every nation in the developed world is facing a similar problem of the polarization of their electorate with the sides growing ever further apart and heading to their respective extremes. The more liberal parties are being controlled and populated with ever more leftists holding extreme leftist positions, the conservative parties are moving further right, and there are ever fewer people seemingly occupying the middle ground. It is getting to the point that what used to be a liberal and what used to be a conservative have become united as the center with the rest of the electorate at the fringes of the left and right having left the others behind. What would be most interesting would be the founding of a centrist party which held moderate views with a collection of liberal and conservative points with the emphasis on the few ideas both sides could agree to hold in uniting this party and allow things to play out from there. The other choice is for the electorate to be so far apart that whichever party wins an election is looked upon by the members of the other party not as just the other party but as their enemies as is the apparent situation with many leftists concerning President Trump.

 

Let us begin with the British and their Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn. He too made some comments addressing the centennial commemoration of the Balfour Declaration. His commentary was quite different from the words of Prime Minister May. Leader of the Opposition Corbyn stated as quoted by the British media, “Let us mark the Balfour anniversary by recognizing Palestine as a step towards a genuine two-state solution of the Israel-Palestine conflict, increasing international pressure for an end to the fifty-year occupation of the Palestinian territories, illegal settlement expansion and the blockade of Gaza.” We will not address the mistakes and errors in his statements and instead offer this article Reflections on the Balfour Declaration to stand as the correcting statements of Jeremy Corbyn and numerous others who took to the media to spread falsehoods about the Balfour Declaration, a common practice in this world concerning the history around the founding of Israel. The single misstatement commonly made which we wish to correct is that Israel was designed to be a British colonial implant in the Middle East. Israel was the nativist dream of the indigenous Hebrews who were renamed by the Greeks and Romans after their largest remaining Tribe, the Tribe of Judah, which was eventually shortened from Judean to Judan to Ju, currently spelled Jew but pronounced as the original Roman spelling. Back to Mr. Corbyn, a man who has at times in his political career faced charges of anti-Semitism and who has admitted to being an anti-Zionist. Well before taking the leadership of the Labour Party, back in 2009 Jeremy Corbyn stated, “It will be my pleasure and my honor to host an event in Parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking. I’ve also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak as well. Unfortunately, the Israelis would not allow them to travel here so it’s going to be only friends from Hezbollah. The idea that an organization that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people and bringing about long-term peace and social justice and political justice in the whole region should be labeled a terrorist organization by the British government is really a big, big historical mistake.” The fate of British-Israeli relations should Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters ever become the leadership of Britain was made obvious back in 2009 with this statement from which he has never distanced himself. So, Israel can count on the support of Britain likely for as long as the Conservative Party remains leading the ruling coalition and will face a hostile Britain should the Labour Party ever be the leasing party of a coalition.

The United States is not very different than Great Britain, but let us investigate anyway. The Democrat Party had two politicians who sought that party’s nomination for President, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. We will start with Bernie Sanders, the one who lost the primaries but made an impressive showing despite his loss. The most telling facts about his positions concerning Israel were his appointees to critical positions. The first was his choice for Jewish outreach, a position considered important in Democrat politics, as it can be responsible for considerable funding opportunities. Bernie Sanders chose Simone Zimmerman who is a supporter of the extremist Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) – which the ADL named as one of America’s top 10 anti-Israel hate groups. This may not have been as critical a choice since many of the modern American Jews, especially the younger and more assimilated Jews, no longer have the close feelings for Israel which was the root of the Jewish community in previous elections as was notable in the Jewish support for President Obama in his reelection after there had been ample proof of his lack of support for Israel and obvious animosity for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. The other appointments made by Bernie Sanders which gave such insight were his two selections which he placed upon the Platform Committee. One of his appointments was Professor Cornel West, he has called the Israeli Prime Minister a war criminal but openly supports the BDS movement (boycott, divestment, and sanctions). Professor West has made his position on Israel clear and has been rumored to hold similar views concerning Jews. Mr. Sanders other choice was the longtime pro-Palestinian activist James Zogby. Mr. Zogby’s view of Jews and Israel are well documented and need not be referenced here. Bernie Sanders has proven repeatedly through actions and statements made his antipathy for Israel obvious.

The other Democrat was their candidate for President, Hillary Clinton. Max Blumenthal, the son of Sidney Blumenthal, both longtime Clinton friends, both have a history of questionable to outright malignant and vicious views concerning Israel. Then there are numerous others from the administration of President Obama and other friendships which could easily call any comments she has made to AIPAC and other Zionist Jewish groups into question. Still haunting Hillary was the reported quote which Paul Fray, then manager of Bill Clinton’s unsuccessful campaign in Arkansas, has verified (search text for Paul Fray) that she referred to him with an anti-Semitic curse despite Paul Fray not being Jewish, thus it was intended as an insult and not a comment on his personhood. There have been rumors for years about Clinton references to minorities using disparaging terms considered to be remnants from the “Old South” over the years which, as they were from the good party and not the evil party, were disregarded as inconsequential. The ugliest of these rumors came in a book by one of the former Secret Service who had served on her security detail before leaving the Secret Service.

 

The clinching condemnation of the Democrat Party and their Israel position came at the 2012 Democrat Convention. The easiest means of providing the evidence is the video below. They actually did refuse to accept Jerusalem as the Capital City of Israel and refused to include The Almighty in their Party Platform and had to resort to simply ignoring the feelings of the floor and place it in the platform over their rejections.

 

It is fairly obvious that except for a few of the old time Democrats, the new Democrat Party does not support Israel. This is something also greeted with enthusiasm by the new number two person in the Democrat Party, Keith Ellison. When Haaretz has a problem with a Democrat, that Democrat has an obvious Israel problem, and Keith Ellison earned that problem. We will clearly grant that Democrats such as Senator Chuck Schumer still support Israel, but many of the new, far left Democrats, not so much. Should the Democrats once again take the White House, Israel might be seeking some new friends.

 

The extremely delicate condition of the political support Israel faces in the world today is the very reason we keep insisting that Israel already be designing their next generation fighter and the facilities in which to manufacture said aircraft. The same foes for rifles, sidearms, ammunition, helicopters, ships and even submarines as none of the current Israeli suppliers should be considered as safe continuing into the Twenty First Century. Any nation which is dependent upon its military for its continued existence should not permit itself to ever become dependent upon foreign providers for its defense requirements. This has always been part of the policies of the United States, China and Russia and should become the policy for Israel as well. Israel most certainly does not lack the brain trust to design and produce all of her weapons requirements, and she has an economy easily sufficient for the manufacture of her entire military needs. The sooner the leadership in Israel recognizes these vital requirements and the facts making them all the more necessary, the brighter the future of Israel will become.

The Hard Left and the New Anti-Israel Filter

 

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanction Israel Movement (BDS) is the core principle which the new hard left groups demand everyone support or they cannot support any of the other hard leftist movements. Think you believe in racial equality and support those who are fighting against perceived mistreatment of Blacks by the police, justice system and all of life and politics and desire to join the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, well, what are your views on Israel. Support Palestinian Arabs as people of color and actively support BDS or you will be found to be unacceptable to the BLM leadership and their constituents. If you are Jewish you will almost constantly be suspect and will have to be more anti-Israel than anyone else to the point that you will need to become obsessively anti-Israel and super active pro-Palestinian Arab. You will need to find out if any of your friends or members of your synagogue support Israel and avoid them to the point of rudeness. Yes, we agree, the two should have nothing to do with each other but still hating Israel and everything about Israel and those who are lost to supporting the genocidal Israeli policies or obviously you cannot be a true supporter of the BLM groups. Support for Israel automatically makes you unacceptable to support BLM because they demand you hate Israel and support the BDS movement. But wait, there’s more.

 

What if you believe you support women’s rights and equal pay for equal work and decide you want to be a supporter and join National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA)? Again it will come down to your support for BDS and being anti-Zionist to the point of being anti-Israel. Of course the NWSA does not demand you hate Israel, just Zionism. Of course as one cannot tell which Israeli products are from the “West Bank” (Judea and Samaria) or whether anything used in their production came from there so to be safe just boycott all Israeli products to be safe. What does supporting BDS have to do with women’s rights and smashing the glass ceiling and making equal pay for equal work the law? Everything, obviously as how can you be sensitive to women’s rights while not being equally sensitive to the Palestinian Arabs plight?

 

The same question can be asked about BLM demands that one support BDS and stand against Israel politically. The same goes for an endless number of other leftist causes, especially the most adamant activists. It is the leftist law that if one is in for one cause, they are then in for all causes. This all for one mentality forces on all the acceptance of many presumed facts. The Palestinians are also being suppressed by Israel which can be proven through simple facts. The Palestinians have not had an election in years and are not allowed to vote in Israeli elections. Never mind they are ruled by the Palestinian Authority in Areas A and B in Judea and Samaria and that Gaza is ruled by Hamas and Israel pulled every Jew, Israeli, and IDF troops completely out of Gaza in August of 2005 in a gut wrenching and societal upheaval where over half the country was either up in arms against, crying in sympathy and generally supporting the people of Gush Katif and the other communities torn apart and having their lives completely dumped on its head. Some of these people remain as refugees all but ignored by their government who promised at the time to make things right, they most certainly did not and many of these communities found themselves fighting alone to put a life of any measure together. Many took over five years for the government recompensing them for their losses, but how do you put a price on life of an entire community. They lost their synagogue and were scattered with lives shattered. But you are a leftist, these Zionists have no relevance to your causes but supporting BDS is the right thing to do, everybody you protest with agrees that supporting BDS, the Palestinians and the Arab cause against Israel is just.

 

Why should the Jews have their own nation? It’s not like the Jews are like the Japanese, Chinese, French, Russians, Germans, Italians, Iranians, Syrians, who definitely deserve a new nation probably somewhere in Europe; the Jews are different and simply live in all kinds of nations and that has worked, right? Well, there was that problem during World War II, but that cannot happen again, the Jews are accepted now. Yes, there is some anti-Semitism but that’s not our problem, is it, after all we like Jews; it is the Israelis who are the problem.

 

Yes, that is it, you know there is a difference as you are not against Israel; you are just against Jews living in Israel and ruling over Arabs. Instead Israel should become an Arab state with Arabs leading it and of course the Jews can remain once they permit the five million, or is it eight million, hard to tell as the numbers change regularly, but allow these millions of Arab Muslims to settle where their homes used to be or wherever they claim their homes used to be. Even if some of the new Syrian refugees might remember their long lost relatives who lived in Israel and that should qualify you to also move to Israel. Why go all the way to Germany when you can simply cross the Golan Heights and settle in Israel, the United Nations will vote to allow that in the General Assembly and the world will send forces to assist even without a Security Council Chapter Seven motion though if the world acts while President Obama is still in the White House it is possible that the United States will support this solution for the Syrian refugee problem so neatly.

 

The Jews will be safe with the Arabs ruling Israel as Israel is a democratic nation with freedom of religion. That will keep them safe. That is one of the Basic Laws which serve like the Israeli constitution, and constitutions are permanent. Well, yes, technically any Basic Law can be repealed by a simple majority vote of the Knesset. The Arab would never repeal such a basic and fundamental law, would they? And anyway, even if the Arabs changed the laws, the Jews could return to the nations in Europe and the United States where they came from. What is that? Half the Jews in Israel came from nations in the Middle East and North Africa when the laws made remaining impossible and in some cases were thrown from their homes with everything they owned stolen leaving them one or two suitcases per person. Well, they could all move to the United States and live somewhere where there are many Jews already, like New York or Boston.

 

These are becoming fundamental tenets of the hard left and are spreading to take control over the left completely. Take the Democrat Convention of 2012 where they voted down placing recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital City of Israel and the fundamental belief in G0d as part of America when this was brought to a vote on the floor of the convention (see video below). Further evidence came from the recent Democrat Convention which we covered with words, pictures and video here. The Left party in Britain, their Labor Party just had an investigation into sweeping anti-Semitism spreading through their ranks and within their ruling elites including Jeremy Corbyn, their leader as well as the Leader of the Opposition in the British Parliament. But British anti-Semitism is not new as this anti-Semitic cartoon from the 1233 Norwich tax record (see below). Study guide for the picture with explanation can be researched here.

The anti-Semitism in France has reached levels where many Jews no longer feeling safe moved to the United States if they had relatives and to Israel. Anti-Semitism in Europe is growing at a pace even faster than the arrival of Arab refugees who bring their own anti-Semitism with them. It is proffered that the increase in anti-Semitism in Europe which has sufficient evidentiary proof which displays that it far outstrips the numbers of the new arrivals is likely due to the feeling that it is acceptable and even becoming welcome and acceptable and is heavily aligned with the progressive left. Such as this is why Israel is so vital as not so slowly but definitely and definitively and inexorably anti-Semitism is growing on the political left joining the radical extreme right where historic anti-Semitism was always claimed to be the unwelcome part of such political extremists, but the leftist anti-Semitism is spreading from the hard left progressivism into the mainstream liberal progressive left. Acceptable organizations including groups among those supporting racial equality such as BLM, women’s right such as NWSA and other left progressive groups in other causes favor and even demand that their members also support the BDS movement or at least boycott certain or all Israeli goods. Rejection of Israeli academics has swept across many campuses in Europe, the United States and other higher education institutes around the globe. Unions have lined up in active support of BDS.

 

 

The near universal and still growing support from the progressive forces and the Democrat Party as well as the animosity against Israel are troubling and it appears it is only a matter of time before the anti-Israel and pro-BDS support begins to morph into anti-Semitism. Initially the anti-Semitism will be against the obvious religious Jews which is actually weird as it is amongst these very groups where there are Jews who do not support Israel for religious reasons believing that the return to Israel, the Promised Land, will only come as a blessing from Hashem when the Messiah comes and leads the incoming as part of the initiation of a perfect world. They view Zionism as being against the will of Hashem and thus sinful. Still, they will be the first ones to feel the anti-Semitism as it becomes part of the mainstream. Then the next groups will be the religious Jews and then relatives of Israeli Jews and religious Jews. Eventually it will spread to be all Jews and even those Jews who have sworn off and left their religion will not be safe before the rising anti-Semitism is finished. The levels of anti-Semitism in Europe are rising, already permeate the Middle East and North Africa, are growing in many parts of Asia, have risen again in Russia and the Ukraine and are starting to grow in the United States.

 

What is most disturbing is the raising level of anti-Semitism is greatest on college and university campuses with regular anti-Israel demonstrations, the shouting down to physically attacking any pro-Israel speakers or even Jewish speakers in some instances. This fact makes the future highly doubtful and potentially unsafe for Jews throughout the Western World. Should these apparent threats come to fruition the existence of Israel will become a holy saving grace for the Jews of the world. What is equally if not more frightening is the potential for the United Nations Security Council revoking the resolutions which established the nation of Israel, evicting Israel from the United Nations and then passing a resolution calling for the military forces of the world to finish the destruction of Israel as an illegal entity and ridding the world of Israel. Should that come to pass, how much longer after such would the world then turn to rid itself of all Jews as a measure to assure that the world never establish a Jewish state in the future. The possible spread of anti-Israel accompanied by its close relative, anti-Semitism, takes hold throughout the governments of the world; what nations would refuse to comply with such bigotry?

 

The one we would predict would be a nation familiar with being the sacrificial lamb of the greater powers of their day, the Czech Republic, one of the two nations formed from Czechoslovakia which supported Israel in 1948 when most of the world placed an arms embargo against the nascent state of Israel fighting for her survival from day one of her existence. The British and the United States both embargoed Israel contrary to the mistaken ideas that both were allies and friends of Israel from the start, not so. Still, if it became Israel and the Czech Republic and maybe another fifteen smaller nations were to face the major powers for their allied survival, the outcome might surprise the world and that would prove a single truth, Hashem does care and still rules the Earth far more than those elites rule, much to their dismay, we are sure. We pray it never comes to that but the levels of anti-Semitism resulting in almost every Jew returning to Israel, their real home, that may very well be on its way and the end result will benefit the world if only it will allow Israel to fulfill her true mission, to be a light unto the nations and shine a light on Hashem and his truths.
