Britain’s New Labor Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn

 

British Labor Party elections were held this past Saturday and the results, though not much of a surprise as polling predicted the result, are saddening with the confirmation of the party’s new leader and likely candidate for the Prime Ministership should Labor Party win the next election cycle placing Jeremy Corbyn in 10 Downing Street and leader of the United Kingdom. The warnings were sounded though, as I live far from the British Isles, I am unsure if the mainstream British media relayed the warnings of Mr. Corbyn’s past and present alliances and acquaintances and his preference to align with Hamas, Hezballah and others who hold anti-Zionist, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic views, politics and racial disregard. British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Sunday, according to the Independent, “The Labor Party is now a threat to our national security, our economic security and your family’s security.” Prime Minister Cameron continued claiming, “Whether it’s weakening our defenses, raising taxes on jobs and earnings, racking up more debt and welfare or driving up the cost of living by printing money, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labor Party will hurt working people.” He concluded pointing out, “This is a very serious moment for our country,” adding, “the Conservatives will continue to deliver stability, security and opportunity for working people.” Guess there might be no need to ask Prime Minister David Cameron how he really feels, do we?

The problem is while it is true that the end of the Prime Minister’s rant did plug his own Conservatives Party claiming that they would “continue to deliver stability, security and opportunity for working people,” his warnings about the new Labor Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn and the company he keeps along with his political positions are completely valid regarding the effects they could have if all his announced positions and intended economic policies were to be passed. The list of Jeremy Corbyn’s core policies, politics and relations include defending anti-Semitic and extremist clergyman Vicar Stephen Sizer after he was sanctioned by the Church over a Facebook post which suggested that the Jews were behind the 9/11 attacks, has appeared as a regularly featured guest on former KKK leader David Duke’s radio show to rail about “Jewish” or “Zionist” conspiracies, in 2009 invited members of Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist representatives to appear and speak before Parliament, reducing the British military even further, raising taxes on the ‘wealthy’ and unilaterally disarm all of Britain’s nuclear weapons. Add his familiarity with far-right Holocaust deniers, supporting conspiracy theories blaming Israel and the Jews for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and an unknown target as the passengers of Flight 93 brought their plane down in a field near Shanksville, Pa. Actually I have read at least a half-dozen articles and the list of reasons that Jeremy Corbyn would be a disaster for the people of the United Kingdom outstripped my mind’s ability to keep track of at least half of the problems given. The election of Jeremy Corbyn would probably have much the same effects which President Barack Hussein Obama executed on the United States except on the United Kingdom.

 

There will probably be many who will claim that the election of Jeremy Corbyn to lead the Labor Party will result in a loss of half their representatives in the Parliament as many British Citizens will flee Labor and vote for the Liberal Democrats, for Conservative and Unionist Party or even Green Party. There were many in the United States who said the same thing about President Obama in the 2008 Election only to end up as shocked as Hillary when Obama walked off with the win in the primaries and then strode into the White House besting Senator John McCain and then won the in 2012 gaining second term beating Mitt Romney.

 

What was extremely shocking was the success President Obama gained from Jewish voters after he insulted and showed complete disdain for Bibi Netanyahu and disregard for Israeli security by giving it simple rhetoric but also refusing to deter Iran from their efforts to reach nuclear weapons capability. President Obama further pulled all American troops out of Iraq while overturning Syria and drawing red lines over Bashir al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons and then backing away and turning into a shrinking violet. Further, he was failing to address any Middle East or North African revolutions while taking a leading from behind allowing others with similar timidity to lead. President Obama almost appeared to enjoy turning allies into enemies, embracing the worst of the worst as new friends all of which climaxed when American Embassy personnel and the Ambassador to Libya were left without proper security leading to the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Smith, a State Department communications specialist, in the initial confrontations while in the second round Libyan al-Qaeda terrorists killed Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, two CIA security contractors and former Navy Seals who were defending the annex from the rooftop.

 

Somehow this disaster was ignored by the media, pushing any serious investigations until after the election, a full fifty-six days later. This was but one of a number of atrocities and legally questionable acts the media either kicked the can down the election path past November or never investigated at all. Such election facilitation by ignoring particularly damaging information by the mainstream media until after the elections is simply media abusing their power and taking sides by refusing to fully report on a damning story which might have altered the election results. We will see if the British media steps up to the plate and does its job reporting the reality whether it gores their sacred cows or not. This next election in Britain promises to be a very contested and, in many ways, crucial to the continuation of democracy around the world.

 

There is another item which took place in Hevron this past weekend that I wish to address. This one is good news for a change, so humor me and enjoy some happiness. The events started with a group of five Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Yeshiva Students, tourists from United States, who took a wrong turn while driving to the Machpela Cave, the Cave of the Patriarchs. They soon found themselves surrounded by Arab young adults and teens who proceeded to throw rocks, cinder-blocks, and firebombs at their car setting the vehicle on fire. Having been forced from their burning car, the five American Yeshiva Students were set to be attacked by the mob which had gathered. Suddenly the five youths felt an arm pulling them to the side of the mob and soon after they were pulled from certain death into the house of an Arab. Confused and bewildered they soon were made to understand that they were safe and would remain in this hero’s house until the Israeli security detail appeared which it finally did, one hour later. The security forces escorted the young men back to safety and their vehicle. A 51-year-old local resident was the hero risking his life and his own safety to rescue five bewildered Yeshiva youths from the United States. California carried the “As soon as we saw that a riot was starting,” Hamadiah told a reporter, “my family and I managed to bring them inside. We gave them water to drink and tried to tell them that they were safe, though they didn’t speak Arabic.” To step up and go against the most radical to help a stranger knowing that doing so will bring scorn and potential danger is an act of heroism. When all around you have lost their humanity and to still act out of compassion for your fellow man and not simply go with the prevailing sentiment, be it stepping up to save those young men from the raging mob or saving those being persecuted in World War II German territory, to go against what would be easiest to do and do what is right when so few around you still even know what is right and goodness, that is being a hero. Having all in your family assist is an expression of hope that indeed we can work out the differences, at least with those who continue to grasp firmly to their humanity in the face of the torrents of hate around them.

A Beheading on the Streets of London

There is an old theory which some news hounds swear by that states that the United States future can be told by looking to Europe. It goes on to explain reasons why mainland Europe is about a decade ahead while England, London in particular, is merely five years or even a slim three years ahead; so whatever one sees on that side of the pond will be coming to the other side of the pond after a slight delay. The importance of this dusty old theory is very important after what was witnessed in broad daylight on the streets of London this past week, the beheading of an English subject, a British soldier named Drummer Lee Rigby, in broad daylight in front of witnesses who watched apparently helpless or too scared to do anything about what they were observing. This event takes on an even more eerie and foreboding spirit when combined with the date of November 2, 2004, when in the streets of Amsterdam Theo van Gogh was stabbed to death and a note was impaled in his chest by the murder weapon placed there by Mohammed Bouyeri, a Dutch-Moroccan Muslim. If one applies the Europe to the United States via London theory to these two incidents you reach the implication that the Americans can expect a similar type event to occur sometime in the not too distant future and no later than the year 2018. Part of the problem is that Jihadist violence has already come to the streets of America in multiple different forms where most of the attacks have been of a general nature not targeting specific individuals. The murder of Theo van Gogh was an execution as was the beheading of this British soldier who was murdered because of having been a British soldier. Once individuals are being selected for execution in the name of Jihad which will make politicians a targeted group we can expect more definitive action to be taken to interdict such attacks.

 

British Prime Minister David Cameron stated that the attack was “truly shocking” while cutting short his visit to Paris in order to return to London in order to convene the security cabinet, aptly named Cobra. As has become expected standard procedure for Western politicians Prime Minister Cameron simply claimed that terrorism was suspected but that further investigation would be required in order to verify that finding. This has become the PC mantra no matter how definitive the evidence that any attack is terror related. The attackers can bellow out Allahu Akbar until they are blue in the face passing out and still the media and the majority of politicians will still take the default initial position of denial until overwhelming evidence leaves them no other choice but to acknowledge reality. Until the leaders and those who make the national policies awaken to the realities that are right before their eyes and whose mantra is echoing in their ears the problem will continue to fester only passively opposed when active resistance is required. Our societies are under attack in a genocidal religious life and death struggle and the leaders of Western society and the default defenders of the faith, so to speak, are going to great lengths to avoid any confrontation. They are not solely to blame as they are merely a reflection of the society which they represent which is more concerned with who will be voted off of some show or who will be crowned the next singing sensation than they are the protection of their way of life. Those who realize and are concerned with the coming violence over whose society will be preeminent and whose society will be extinct can pound the story and loudly announce the coming threat and pray that they are able to awaken sufficient numbers before the battle is lost. One of the obstacles is that our way of life no longer revolves around religious principles but relies more on the creature comforts of our secular humanist progressive liberal morality over the stricter regimen of religious scriptural morality and thus leaves us possessing too little sensitivities to the challenges based on a religious front to discern the growing threats. Eventually there will occur sufficient events or some sufficient singular catastrophic event that will awaken the sleeping masses to the reality and challenge we face. We need pray that whatever event or series of events it takes to awaken within us the necessary indignations and self-preservation instinct to cause us to rise in defense of our societies does not come at so steep a price it makes resistance virtually, if not actually, impossible. Trust that if the necessary wakeup call turns out to be an EMP device or numerous such that lay waste to our electronic infrastructure, then we will have awakened too late for it to matter.
