What Good is Bipartisanship if One Side Supports Your Demise?

 

The AIPAC convention ended last week and the eighteen-thousand plus attendees returned home hopefully more invigorated, excited and informed about Israel, the challenges facing the Jewish State and the means by which they can best support the State of Israel. Unfortunately that may not be the case. One of the goals of AIPAC over the years has been to continue to be nonpartisan leading to bipartisan support for Israel. This has worked admirably well since 1967 when the United States took an interest in pursuing an actively supportive roll with Israel yet still continued its arms embargo which had been in effect almost immediately after granting Israel recognition in May of 1948 until 1968 when, with strong support from Congress, President Lyndon Baines Johnson approved the sale of Phantom fighters to Israel, establishing the precedent for US support for Israel’s qualitative military edge over its neighbors. This has little effect though on American support for the militaries of several allied Arab nations who potentially could have been Israeli enemies in future hostilities. Since 1968 Israel had received bipartisan support with politicians from both sides of the aisle in the Congress acting and voting favorably in matters concerning Israel. There have been some individual actions which placed this support into something conditional on Israel committing herself in a manner which the United States required for their support.

The most famous came during the Yom Kippur War when President Nixon, under urging and pressure from Secretary of State Kissinger claiming that this action would force the Israelis to be more malleable and easily controlled, initially denied resupply of desperately needed armaments by the Israeli Defense Forces. When Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir called President Nixon and informed him that Israel without resupply might necessarily have to fall onto the Samson Option, a suspected but never actually defined last ditch effort if facing being overrun, expressed the desperate need that President Nixon released the needed armaments. This led to another problem as numerous European nations refused United States requests to allow the resupply planes landing and refueling rights as they also were refusing to assist Israel and were refusing to assist the United States in assisting Israel. Still, the planes did get through and Israel survived the surprise attack on Yom Kippur which almost resulted in an Israeli defeat. It need be pointed out that one Israeli defeat and there will be no Israel and the resulting toll of Jewish deaths would be unprecedented as today there are over six-million Jews living in Israel. There were rumors that another reason Nixon sent the arms was that Israel had opened the silo covers from their missiles and this was picked up by a geosynchronous spy satellite stationed over the war zone, otherwise meaning over Israel as she was attacked by Egypt and Syria with additional support by expeditionary forces from Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Cuba, and Morocco and additional air support from Libya as well as a North Korean deployed MiG-21 squadron to Bir Arida to protect Egypt’s south.

Israel continued to receive bipartisan support from the Congress and a good amount of such remains to this day. There have been times when the Republicans wavered especially during the late 1980’s and into much of the 1990’s as a response to tepid at best Jewish support for Republicans. With the rise of the Evangelical Christian support for Israel, the Republican support has returned to a robust level. The weakening support currently lies with the Democrats who have come to figure basically who are the Jews going to support as the vast majority of American Jews are liberal to far leftists. There are exceptions mostly amongst the Orthodox and religious Zionist Jews who are supportive of the Republicans. So the Democrats simply take their seventy-five plus percent support by the Jews as a given for which they actually need not support Israel and these Jews will continue to support them. This is further proven by the wavering of Leftist Jews in their support for Israel, many have actively become supporters of the Palestinians at the cost of Israel. They have come to view Israel to be a right wing governed stronghold and are against Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett, the Justice Minister and second chair in Jewish Home Ayelet Shaked as well as the remainder of the Likud Party, the religious parties and the Zionist parties as opposed to their preferred solution of removing all Jews from Judea and Samaria as well as much of Jerusalem and giving all this for a Palestinian Arab state and not necessarily an unarmed Arab State. They view Israel as too religious, too Jewish and Torah observant and are extremely disgruntled over Israeli insistence on recognizing Torah observant Jewishness and not accepting Reform, Reconstructionist, Alternative Orthodox and some Conservative Rabbis’ conversions because they do not meet the more stringent Israeli requirements for conversions within Israel. These Jews have decided if Israel refuses to allow American Jews to dictate policy and what government they can have, then they refuse to support these ungrateful Israeli Jews; sad but it is true.

 

This wavering by the Democrat Party in many instances not being supportive of the Israeli government and the lack of support from a large segment of Jewish Democrats, there are some who question if this bipartisanship is working. This came particularly to the fore when President Obama challenged AIPAC and demanded they choose between the Israeli position and that of the Obama Administration pushing that support for Israel could hinge on their accepting the President’s position on the solution which favored the Palestinian Arab position and placed all the onus on Israel to bend over backwards and make all the concessions receiving nothing in return. AIPAC buckled to the pressure from the White House and in the process sacrificed their Zionist beliefs placing them on the altar of political correctness and then making a fire sacrifice burning them up as the President demanded. It was a sad thing to watch and to behold what was pledged to be a pro-Israel group turns on their pledges to Israel in the name of bipartisanship as they feared losing Democrat support. One could ask is Democrat support actually necessary if it requires forsaking your guiding principles? That is where the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) and its President, Morton A. Klein, did Israel and Zionism proud when the ZOA faced similar pressures and simply stood as Zionist and let the consequences be what they may. Sometimes this is what supporting a cause requires, stating your principles and standing by them as without a principled core, what does an organization have to show, bipartisanship without a core, that is meaningless.

AIPAC will soon face a crisis and it is rushing towards them as if it were a runaway train without any brakes or anyone in the cab. The leftists and liberals, especially those in the Democrat Party, are going to press for AIPAC to stand with them against President Trump and his Administration with their Israeli policies. This will be a do or die decision for the leadership in AIPAC. The Democrats are basically going to give them an, either you are with us or against us, proposition. This will put bipartisanship completely out of the equation as they will be facing a choice as to which side they are going to support, President Trump and Israel or the Democrat Party, its leftists who have run off with the party and the Palestinian Arabs. This will be a one or the other and as the vast majority of Jews currently are Democrats, this will be an even more difficult choice as much of their finances come from these Jews and their support for many will hinge on AIPAC’s choice. The true Zionists who still remain in the Democrat Party, likely because their Congressperson still supports Israel and they refuse to see the truth of the heart of the part having turned against Israel, will remain loyal to AIPAC no matter which way they decide. What is actually in the balance will be possibly the depth of Trump and his Administration to their pledged support for Israel. After all, if AIPAC stands against what President Trump and his people are hoping to accomplish vis-à-vis Israel, would that not point to the fact that maybe they are going about things all wrong? AIPAC represents presumably the pro-Israel position and if they are opposing your actions, well, what does that say. Additionally, what kind of signals are sent when the two presumably most pro-Israel groups stand in opposition to one another with ZOA supporting Trump and all he is attempting to accomplish while AIPAC stand in opposition. We will see what happens but there is one last warning we must present AIPAC with, this is one decision that not deciding is deciding because as far as these leftist Democrats and their Jewish compatriots, either you are actively with them or you are their enemy, there are no half measures and no bipartisan positions, you have to choose or they will choose for you. Further, even if you choose and even one of your ranking members steps out of the strict lines these people will place around you, then you will be called to answer because they will not couch any discrepancies from their approved positions. Once in, you have to be all the way in and no hedging your position or backtracking will be permitted and anyone dissenting in the slightest will, you will be demanded to reprimand and depart their company.

 

Some final thoughts on this subject as a whole and independent of any AIPAC, ZOA or other political actions type lobbying groups. The far left has made their choice. They have decided, as they historically always have, that they want an end to the Judeo-Christian ethic and what Hitler referred to as the Jew Conscience and Jew Morality which he promised to free the world from. This is why initially, before Germany declared war on the United States, people like Charles Lindbergh, William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy, John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon, Allen Dulles as well as Vice President of General Motors Graeme K. Howard supported Adolf Hitler as well as Generalissimo Francisco Franco and Benito Mussolini as it appeared that their fascist methods were working extremely well for business and manufacturing. What they may or may not have known was that much of the success was making the tools and weapons of war which became evident later in the 1930’s as World War II started. When this resolute means for ridding society and the governance of Judeo-Christian ties, their next great love affair was with the Communists. Interestingly enough the Communists also were promising an end to the Judeo-Christian ethic and the strangling influence it had on their plans. The leftists have always been kindly favorable of hedonism which runs afoul of the Judeo-Christian lifestyle of staunch conservatism and a religious and proper restriction on one’s personal actions. The Communists also failed to rid the world, especially the West, of the Judeo-Christian ethos and it too fell by the wayside. Well, not to be left without a champion who can rid them of the Judeo-Christian ethos; the leftists of today have allied with Islam. They are of the belief that once Islam has rid the world of Judeo-Christianity as a driving force and has put in place a dictatorial governance, another item the leftists find attractive and also another reason they loved Fascism and Communist and their centralized power in the government, the leftists reason that they can simply take control of the levers of power and transform Islam to fit their ideal and ideas. They believe that their “superior education” and “superior experience in governance” and their “general superiority in all things” will allow them to simply transform Islam into adopting their leftist principles and morals (or lack thereof) thus finally establishing their new world order. What they are missing in their plan is exactly how they will take over Islam and change a religion and its principles and strict moral code which have resisted change for much of its fourteen hundred years of existence. Granted that Islam had a period where it had settled from constant war and conquest and was quite agreeable and accepting of non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians. There was the Golden Age of Islam (725 – 1260 approx.) where a liberated view of Islam permitted a pluralistic society and free exchange of information and a general acceptance of science and knowledge from outside of the Quran. This liberalism and the permitting of extra-Quranic knowledge came crashing to an end with two distinct and distant events. The first was the arrival of the Mongols from the east and the final was the rise of the Spanish under King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella and the purification of Spain. With the military defeats came the belief that Islam must return to the very roots which carried it forth originally from the Arabian Peninsula and a strict following of the teachings of Muhammad as portrayed in the Quranic texts and the Hadiths. This has continued ever since with the repeated expectation that this solution will work, Allah willing. They may finally be correct as Europe is being gifted to the purveyors of Islam on a golden platter. The leftists will allow the invasion and conquest without use of actual military but simply by replacement and superiority of numbers. The unfortunate thing for the Europeans will be that the Muslims may prove to be impatient and resort to civil warfare to speed the process rather than waiting for the inevitable to simply occur. This may prove to be their undoing as it may awaken the entirety of Europe before the Muslims have sufficient numbers to win outright and thus lead to a horrific conflict as Europe either saves itself from Islam and rediscovers having children in the process or Islam succeeds in speeding the process and the infidel are purged in the process. Either resolution will not benefit the leftists as their plan is extremely flawed for any number of reasons, but that has always been the case.

Palestinian Arabs War on the Jews and Israel

 

Those leftist Jews such as those in Israel joining B’Tselem, Gush Shalom, Public Committee Against Torture in Israel, The Alternative Information Center, Ta’ayush and others along with their European cohorts like European Jews for a Just Peace and the European Union and government which provide the majority of the funding for the above Israeli NGOs plus the thusfar most influential American NGOs starting with President Obama’s favorite, J-Street as well as Defence for Children International, Palestine Section (DCI/PS), Faculty For Israeli-Palestinian Peace, Amnesty International, US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, International A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism!) and Tikkun amongst a plethora of others plus the ever insistent BDS Movement are waging war against Israel currently but they would not stop there if they were to destroy Israel, they would then continue and eradicate all Jews then destroy the rest of Judeo-Christian societies without a care as to what replaced their governance. This has always worked out so well as it did with the Stalinist Purges and Mao’s agricultural plans which resulted in tens if not hundreds of millions of deaths, the actual figures are quite vague and unknown. Should these efforts result in the rise of the Islamic Caliphate to rise in place of their despised Judeo-Christian culture, the numbers of deaths resulting from the cleansing of the unbelievers would dwarf even Mao but history would forget them as a necessary result of Allah’s will. One need remember that the winners write the history and they decide the tale, not the vanquished. The suicidal venue provided by these anti-religion leftists who bow at the feet of Baal not knowing whom they worship and not knowing the human sacrifice their godless deity does demand nor that they are to be the sacrificed if the need be called for.

 

These groups all have the most noble sounding names but only to hide the most insidious of intents. Their claim of desiring to help the Arab Palestinians establish a stable state which will flourish and become independent of the current system of living off the generosity, protection money, from others is the sheet with which they cover their real intentions, the destruction of the Jewish State and the Jewish Religion afterwards. Their noble claims are nothing to them but their disguise behind which they hide. Their real effects upon the Palestinians is for every Jewish family there will soon be a business owned by that family leaving Judea and Samaria and when the BDS score big they force a factory or an entire manufacturing block to be closed and moved lock, stock but not all the jobs back within the infamous Green Line. The jobs which end up not moving with the businesses, the factories, the manufacturers such as Soda Stream are the Palestinians’ jobs as many are unable to receive work entry visas and others do not even try as they cannot afford to travel the greater distance. They lose jobs and their futures, jobs which on average paid four to five times the going wage in the Palestinian Authority. These Palestinians are the real victims of these phony advocates who hide behind those whose lives they destroy because they are collateral damage while they wage their war against the Jewish faith, the Jewish State and eventually all of Judeo-Christian philosophy and western society in the process. The Palestinian Arabs are simply the lever they use in their real war waged against religion and Hashem in all denominations and spirits. These are the worshipers of secularism, those whose faith is in humans as the highest intelligence and as the supreme result and end product of Darwinian evolution. Their fuel is the fear that they may be wrong and are not the supreme beings they pretend they are and protest they must be. Theirs is a holy cause against all that their ancestors held as holy for their religion demands the overturning of what is replacing it with their perfection. They believe that man can construct a perfect order if only they be given all power. We have witnessed such absolutist throughout history from the earliest recounting of the Jewish Bible through to the modern day and the leaders of these groups are such people. Many of those are followers amongst which many are true believers blind to the damage resulting from their actions as they are being as lied to as are the public, media and any who are willing to be fooled. Like true believers throughout history they march, they protest, they send thousands of e-mails; they carry out the marching orders which come from their leaders, what they consider to be from on high. Such is their religion though they believe theirs is an anti-religious order, a purely secular movement rather than the religion of secularism.

 

The real distressing truth is that the majority of these NGOs are cosponsored by the Arab leadership, particularly the leaders from the PLO, Hamas, the Arab League and both Arab nations and European nations under strong leftist leanings. The leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the PLO before them as well as Hamas have lined their pockets getting fat and wealthy on the misery they allow to be prolonged on those they presume to serve. Add to this the refusal of the Arabs both within the Palestinian leadership and throughout much of the Arab world to recognize Israel inside any borders as anything other than a Muslim Arab state where the Jews are Dhimmis walking at the edge of streets in the gutter with their heads bowed such that they dare not meet the eyes of their Muslim superiors. The Arabs have been given 78% of the British Mandate to satisfy the Arab demands for their own state and Jordan is that state. When Mahmoud Abbas demands the Palestinians be given their proper 22% of the remaining lands of Palestine they are speaking about the 22% that is not Jordan, not what they refer to as the West Bank with or without Gaza. The Arabs were offered half of that 22% by the United Nations in 1948 with most of the best farmland and the Jews to receive mostly Negev Desert and they refused as this would permit Israel as the Jewish State with recognized borders. This was followed by all-out war with more than six national armies invading Israel with genocidal intents and almost eighteen months after the start of this war when the Arab leaders realized they could not win they allowed an armistice line, the Green Line, to set the demarcation with a stipulation that this armistice line never be considered as a national border thus denying Israel actual borders so they could continue to deny Israel’s existence. After another attempt to erase Israel failed with the Six Day War in June of 1967, the Arab world followed this up with an emergency meeting of the Arab League in Khartoum where the Three No’s were decided; NO peace with Israel, NO recognition of Israel, NO negotiations with Israel and has been an edict obeyed ever since. When Anwar Sadat broke with the Khartoum Resolution he was assassinated for making peace with Israel but that peace remains cold but in place thanks to Egyptian President Sisi as had President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood remained the ruling power in Egypt that peace would have dissolved. There are numerous terrorist groups causing disorder in the Sinai Peninsula in part for causing distress and keeping the hope for overturning the election of Egyptian President Sisi and reinstalling the Muslim Brotherhood as well as the occasional attempt to raid and destroy Israel. These are the originators and the spirit driving the BDS Movement which was initiated by the PLO and Arab League as the Arab Boycott of Israel. BDS Movement is just exactly what the Palestinian leadership has called for repeatedly, the internationalizing of their struggle, thus the Arab Boycott became an international boycott, the BDS Movement. Further internationalizing of their efforts to destroy Israel and then all of Judaism and on to Christianity eliminating Judeo-Christian culture with the intent of replacing it with a secular governance where humankind is worshiped as occupying the highest plane of existence in the chosen universe from the multiverse, a concept mathematically proven, surprise, surprise, which allows for the existence of our universe where Sol is one star and Earth the chosen planet where mankind rules over all he can mathematically prove. My major was theoretical mathematics and I once was in a class challenged to find the fault in a proof which proved that 2+2=5 and it was not from 1984 though I am sure the Professor was implying that if a governance wished that to be the truth, this would have been their proof. There was hidden in one step within the three pages a strange formula was used to divide both sides in order to simplify the equation which if solved equaled zero, and dividing by zero is one of the biggest no-no’s in math though Physicists and Cosmologists appear to love doing exactly that when they are stuck with something they cannot understand thus claiming to have run into infinity. The diameter of the central mass of a black hole is the most famous of these as they define it as a point with zero diameter and near infinite mass which produces infinite gravity because of the formula where:

F = (G x M) / r2

G=6.67428×10-11

M= mass of the black hole star and any matter fallen into it minus that losses due to Hawking radiation which easily overcomes the 10-11 as the star’s mass exceeds 5×1040 easily a greater magnitude than the gravitational constant of G=6.67428×10-11.

And r=0 if you listen to physicists and cosmologists which makes F= ∞ (infinity).
Of course we all know that no matter what the pressure the central mass of a black hole must be at least the diameter of a BB thus at the very least 4.3 mm to 4.4 mm, quite a bit larger than 0, one might say infinitely larger.

The idea that man is the ultimate being and existence held in the universe, or the imaginary realms of the multiverse is as ludicrous as a black hole having infinite gravitational force. We will grant the number is large, but not infinite. Einstein spoke about things which were infinite and he did not include black holes but did state, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” He was a smart physicist as he did not include the force of a black hole as infinite. He did include those who believe they are serving human rights in their efforts to destroy Israel because those Jews are evil in Israel. Perhaps this would be a good place to stop today’s ramblings and hope you have enjoyed this stream of consciousness.

Epiphany on Coming Crisis

 

The Death of a Culture

 

I was discussing yesterday’s article with our grammar and check the spell-check editor when we each added one comment after the other and realized something which did not rest well but just might be the near future. With the introduction of Russian troops loosed in Syria and their targeting those opposing Syrian dictator (but not so strong-man) Bashir al-Assad though not restricting these attacks to the Islamic State, actually aiming for every Assad foe other than the Islamic State starting with those backed by President Obama, the coming result will be another two or three million refugees as many anti-Assad forces lay down their arms and flee. These additional refugees will be exclusively young males who had taken up arms and are combat hardened and not exactly the kind of refugee who will resettle calmly into a suburban home and tend his vegetable garden. These are members of al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist entities who will be seeking some place to set up their version of Sharia and start imposing Islam and turning areas into little terror states wherever they end up settling. These will be the kind of Islamic refugees who are more like the blind sheik or Imam Abu Hamza currently on trial in Britain for instigating terrorist activities. The question which is sure to arise is who will take in these refugees as well as the thus far obvious overly represented young, unattached, childless, apparently single male refugees who have been overrunning Europe and are entering Germany, France and Britain as quickly as they are able to purchase train rickets which has worked well to breach the British borders using mass transit through the Chunnel.

 

The solution, which will be proposed behind closed doors, executed as an executive privilege rather than executive order, to be yet another executive agreement similar to the Iranian Nuclear Deal, which will exempt this action from Congressional oversight, and will permit the funding to come from any executive level budget, which in this case will be shared by Immigrations and the Military, will bring the lion’s share of these new class of warrior refugees into the United States. This will be coordinated as a military mission with United States Army, Air Force and Navy logistical commands coordinating the transport of these refugee warriors from Syria and possibly Afghanistan as well, while President Obama is in the import Islamic Warrior mode, bringing very likely anywhere from two to fifty million refugees when including the extended families of these former allied warriors to be followed by an equal share of refugees from the general refugee population swarming Europe such that approximately half to two-thirds of the tens of millions of refugees will be resettled around the United States. The majority of these refugees will more than likely be placed in the reddest of states as possible and given full citizenship and afforded every possible assistance the Federal Government has to offer. What could possibly go wrong with such a perfect plan? Does it include all the refugees from the Syria and Islamic State war zones? What about the Yazidis who left the Sinjar Mountain and made the journey to Iraq Kurdish areas. Where Are these refugees now? Does anybody really care? Why are these refugees ignored? Wrong War? Wrong Religion? Wrong Race? Wrong Location? Or Just Wrong Peoples?

 

 

Yazidis who left the Sinjar Made the Journey to Iraq Where Are These Refugees Now Does Anybody Really Care

 

The influx of Islamic refugees will be handled with all the care and attention to potential threats these refugees may pose as has been the refugee admittance program which has been run on the Mexican border for the past hundred years where if they are caught they are held until the next morning, processed, given a court date and then released after promising to appear on that day in court. Unbelievably a full almost ten percent actually make their court date and the others have simply disappeared and are nowhere to be found. What could possibly go wrong? These orders will be kept close to their chests and from the prying eyes of Congress, the media and the people of the United States until it has become a fait accompli and it is too late to undo that which will have been done. There will be a resulting series of denunciations, threats to take action and all kinds of noise just as long as nothing is done to prevent the completion of importing potentially an additional quarter of the United States population changing the face of the United States permanently with an Islamic takeover all but guaranteed. There is the sole advantage that the jihadists once they have sufficient numbers and have exercised control over much of the United States, they will close the southern border to assure they are not challenged in their control. The expected clash of civilizations which had been predicted in the 1990s will never even throw up even the flimsiest of resistance as the Islamic takeover is planned and about to be executed by simple mass exodus of refugees and then using democracy to destroy every democracy and replace them with a façade of a vote where the results can be published a week ahead of the elections. About the only thing one can advise is that those who believe the Judeo-Christian world deserves preservation, it is time that you follow the words of the poet Dylan Thomas, “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.*” For those who decide that their plight in life is best served by simply complying blindly we can only advise what Samuel Adams told his fellow colonists who chose not to oppose British tyranny,

 

“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.”

 

And the remainder of you face the worst threat to your freedom a free people have ever seen, I am afraid that all too many of your countrymen and women are simply going to shrug and ignore the coming travesty until it is too late and with you will be facing what Winston Churchill lamented was the worst of all possible situations when he warned his countrymen and women in the late 1930s and they had chosen to ignore his warnings of the coming apocalypse, an apocalypse dwarfed by what the Western World is about to face and likely die as slaves before it is over. Quoting the Honourable Sir Winston Churchill:

 

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may
come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

 

There is a path which if pursued with vigor, purpose and full intent to enforce all conditions and limitations being placed that this refugee problem could avert becoming a disaster for all of Christianity and Judaism and other non-Muslim faiths in the not too distant future but it will take will power and spines of iron from the leaders of the Western world. With the Islamic nations closing their borders to these refugees and forcing them into camps where they have no real hope of a future or even of a guarantee of receiving food or medical treatments if and when necessary, pure frustration and desperations are driving this swarming mass of humanity into Europe seeking an improved set of conditions and possible return to a more normal life which promises to be better than the squalid refugee camps. The west must keep these refugees separate from their indigenous population but without restricting their movement or seeking to pursue a life which has hope and a better world for them in the future, especially for the children of the refugees. The problem comes when it is considered to grant the refugees citizenship or even a viable path to citizenship which requires only the filling in of forms and some menial efforts and the swearing of a loyalty oath or other ceremony. The refugees should be granted a nonvoting status such as resident foreigner leaving their citizenship tied to their nations of origin be it Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan or the Crimea or Georgia or Chechnya. This way once the strife in their home country has subsided and the rule of law been put back in place these refugees can then be persuaded to return to their nation of origin. This can only be successful if the Western nations are stringent in enforcing this and enforcing it even should they intermarry Western citizens, they still should be blocked with few exceptions made on an individual basis from becoming full citizens and possibly even the same for their children, again in an individual basis. Anything else and the Western world are playing with fire and they may as well close up shop and hand the keys to the kingdoms to the refugees and their children and their children’s children as they will become the majority within two generations as long as the demographics remain constant. To allow a virtually free transit into citizenship for the refugees would simply exchange problems with the indigenous population now being made into refugees.

 

This can be managed in such a manner that it works for all, but only if Islam itself is willing to perform some introspection of its own. Should Islam wish to be freely exercised throughout the world it needs to allow for others to worship as they please or expect any non-Islamic nation to refuse all future immigrants of Muslim extraction. The idea of supremacy of Islam and the conquest and domination over all in the world needs to be qualified and understood that there will always be differences of religious convictions no matter how much you attempt to purify the world of all heretics. Within Islam itself there are differing views which have had the Sunni and Shiites at each other’s throats for centuries with no end in sight. One might ask how pure does Islam need to be, all Sunni or all Shiite will leave a great number of dead Muslims and even then, which Sunni or Shiites? Are those Muslims whose forefathers were blocked from making the Haj to Mecca and instead made their Haj to Damascus not as worthy to be Muslims as their other brethren from the Arabian Peninsula? What about Wahabbists Islam? The divisions could result in the end of having every Imam declaring followers of other Imams as impure and the cleansing could eventually result in the last two Muslims screaming “Heretic!” at the other as they clash swords in hand making it as insane as the Highlander immortals where in the end there could be only one.

If Islam wants to be accepted worldwide they also need be accepting of the rest of the world otherwise the rest of the world would be wise not to allow Muslims universally to access entrance to their countries if in the end the Muslims are going to insist in imposing their beliefs on the rest of the population. The Western world might choose the Saudi Arabia method for allowing people into their lands; namely, you follow Judeo-Christian society as the basis of the laws and that religion remains the universal acceptance even of those who choose to have no religion or else no admittance which would mean that no further immigration of anyone with a Quran and treating Mosques as Churches are treated in the most ardent Islamic nations where churches cannot be built, repaired or allowed to stand taller than the Mosques and there can be no proselytizing outside of Judeo-Christian religions. The rules must be equal in both the Islamic world accepting as equals those worshipping differently or not observing at all and allow equal rights to build houses of worship and all other pursuits equal to Muslims or expect the Western world to restrict Islam as Islam restricts non-Islamic faiths. As the old adage says, what is fair is fair and good for the goose, good for the gander.

* Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
