Trump Sunni Middle East Plans to Crash and Burn

 

President Trump has planned this wonderful little arrangement for how to counter and defeat the Iranian menace hegemonic ambitions whose launch was assisted by President Obama and currently is assisting miring Russia in Syria. A quick aside, this Trump plan has very little if anything further to do with Russia, sorry kids. Trump’s master plan would be wonderful from a tactical viewpoint as it would add the Saudi Arabian money and weapons systems sold to them by the United States with the manpower of the Egyptian military and have them directed and assisted by the Israeli technical, intelligence, coordination and military superiority in an allied effort to oppose Iran. The Iran side is augmented by North Korean nuclear and missile technology, Chinese military plans and technical assistance, Iraqi military, Houthis and Alawite civil wars for expanding their spheres of influence, Hezballah terror infrastructure which spans the globe, and a recent influx of billions upon billions of American dollars with some in pallets and pallets of hundred dollar bills freshly minted and which were likely still warm when arriving. Iran and North Korea ally in coordinating their testing and development between their respective technical and physical abilities. On paper or in a game of Risk, President Trump’s policy might appear ideal. Unfortunately, in the real world it will run into some obvious and some not so obvious difficulties which will blow it to pieces. So, let us delve into the deep underbelly of this beast.

 

We will start with the obvious and work our way to the ridiculous in his perfect Middle East plan. First, no plan in the Middle East lasts more than thirty seconds from when it is attempted to be implemented. Second, plans which try to ally Arab nations with Israel, the Jewish State, or as they call it, the Zionist Entity, are guaranteed to be blown apart and possibly lead to a war to prove that there never was any such plan as soon as it hits general knowledge. Fortunately, or not so fortunate for us, BTC does not lead directly to general knowledge. The American mainstream media does and would more than happily place such an agreement made in secret very public while claiming that President Trump was out of his mind making this agreement public while they scream it from every newspaper front page and six and eleven o’clock news casts and radio news on the hour and at the halves. But this aside, they would wait until such a secret alliance of these abilities was most needed before making everything public, providing they could actually contain themselves that long. But Israel is more an inconvenience to blowing this plan apart. Allying Saudi Arabia and Egypt for any long-term agreement which requires their sharing responsibility and each allowing the other operational independence in command leaves large holes in any planning as each will assign the most dangerous and difficult field assignments to the other nation. Neither nation cares to take the more difficult upon themselves or place their soldiers at risk in an agreement with anyone else, as risking other nation’s soldiers is always preferable to risking your own. This was instrumental in their alliance against Iranian forces fighting in Yemen despite both nations having tactical and financial reasons to defeat that threat. Saudi Arabia has Yemen on their southern border which would provide Iran with a southern front against them in Yemen and a northern border with them in Iraq which would be intolerable and pose a difficult threat to address in any conflict with Iran. For Egypt, having Iran control the Bab-el-Mandeb strait at the southern exit of the Red Sea, this could make the Suez Canal useless to any ships Iran prefers to prevent passage. This would cause Egypt extreme financial difficulty as passage through the Suez Canal is one of the major inflows for funds to the Egyptian economy. Still, the two nations were incapable of coordinating and continuing an allied effort to fight the Houthis and prevent the Iranian efforts. Egypt pulled from the alliance without comment, normal in the Middle East, as they thought their losses were excessive for the effort share they had assumed. So, just getting Egypt and Saudi Arabia to play well together is enough of a difficulty and adding Israel to the mix is the same as throwing lighted Zippo lighters into a pool of gasoline while standing in a central island in order to remove the gasoline, it appears to work on paper but explodes in ones face in reality.

But let us assume for the remainder of the article that threats of being exiled from the military assistance of the United States will be sufficient to keep these three nations and the ancillary nations necessary to complete the alliance together. For the inquiring minds, the ancillary allied nations include the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, with some North African states whose addition is mostly inconsequential adding little military power but providing the appearance of a large coalition. So the alliance is rumored to have a number of Arab nations with reports that Israel is a silent ally though being crucial to the operational ability of the entire alliance as the Israelis have the critical command and control ability and experience as well as the intelligence capabilities and assets necessary for operational planning. The point of critical and highest contention would be the days immediately before any actions were required. This would be the absolute worst possible time for it to become common knowledge that Israel would be making decisions on where and against whom Arab forces would be fighting and that the Jews would be sending Muslims to fight other Muslims for the Zionist Entity’s benefit. Just imagine the destructive force a headline stating “Zionist Entity to Command Muslims Forces Against Muslims” would read as the one-inch print on the top half page of the New York Times (NYT). Exactly how long after that morning in New York and the NYT hits the streets and its news alarm gets around the world in seconds after 5:00 AM. That would be the absolute end of that coalition as every Arab and Muslim nation in the alliance officially announce their not knowing about the Zionist Entity’s inclusion in the coalition and demonstrably screaming they would never work with the forces of the Devil. That is why initially the mainstream media would be silent or even denying reports from Iran and their allies about the Israeli efforts as a part of the efforts for as long as such knowledge was not critical. Destruction of any Trump plans are best served when they will do the most damage to Trump and his Administrations even if doing so places the entirety of the free world at risk. Destruction of all that is good is but a small price to pay if Donald Trump can be brought low. The end of all President Trump attempts to accomplish is the main reason for having the mainstream media. News and accuracy are secondary to the deconstruction of all things Trump, that is the new call of news desks across the United States and much of Europe where Germany leads the anti-Trump charge.

 

The efforts by President Trump were almost completely ignored as he made his first foreign tour stopping in three critical points on the globe. Only the final stop was more photo opportunity than anything else, as the Pope has already made his disgust with President Trump more than adequately obvious. The work was completed by the time President Trump hit Rome and made coverage safe again. What was completely not newsworthy was that President Trump was presidential and had much success in his first two stops, Riyadh and Jerusalem. In Saudi Arabia President Trump met with fifty heads of Arab nations, all ruled by Sunni leadership. There was an agreement reached which simply placed a price-tag on President Trump’s visit and that was presumed to be shared between the three wealthiest nations, Qatar, UAE and Saudi Arabia. The agreement was struck and the arrival of President Trump imminent when suddenly Qatar backed out of the agreement which immediately led to the UAE exiting right behind. This left Saudi Arabia footing the entirety of the bill but also will provide all the American weaponry to the Kingdom. President Trump made his disdain for the two nations reneging on their agreement as unprofessional and of causing extreme displeasure. President Trump was not overt but showed his disdain subtly through giving a cold rift to the defaulting leaders. Trump gave them the idea that business rules now applied to the dealings with the United States and any actions would be taken as insult and treated as serious affronts. President Trump made evident to all, there is new leadership and the taking advantage of a weakened United States Presidency was past and that toeing the line was now expected and nothing less was acceptable. Still, President Trump was honored by participating in a sword dance and was awarded the top Saudi honors all while the women in his entourage remained with their hair uncovered. This too was a statement that wherever the President of the United States visited, the rules of conduct of the United States take precedence. President Trump stated in clear protocols and conduct of his people down to the woman who carried his briefcase with hair to the winds, the United States has resumed her position of leadership and the world take note. This was not meant as insult to the Saudi Royal family or the other Arab leaders, this was a political statement meant to claim the highest seat in the yard. This was very possibly a lesson which was taken hard but accepted as reality has returned to normalcy.

 

President Trump may have set up the initial structure with the Saudi Royals and Egyptian President Sisi. Presidents Trump and Sisi were reported to have held a cordial and warm talk during the Riyadh summit. Now, on to Jerusalem and President Trump in Israel where the President made all the regular pilgrimages to Yad Vashem, the Prime Minister’s house for dinner, the Knesset and on. President Trump also made a first when he prayed at the Western Wall. Whether President Trump left a note in the crevasses will remain a secret as that is the nature of such notes, they are not meant for us here to know, they are meant for a higher force. There was another notable event which showed that President Trump is growing in the high office. He was shown evidence which should have come from his advisers, but they too are learning that they are in a whole new game with its own rules and atmosphere. Somebody, we all assume it was Prime Minister Netanyahu, introduced President Trump to some of the delicious realities on You Tube showing the real education of incitement and the actual incitement by Mahmoud Abbas personally. This led to the dressing down in Bethlehem. President Trump was apparently very perturbed and let Mahmoud Abbas know that lying to President Trump, and especially doing so blatantly with the truth so readily attained, was unacceptable and only earns one a place of scorn in the President’s circle. President Trump read Abbas the riot act making it very well known that further financial assistance from the United States would be pinned to the ending of financial rewards for terrorists and their families and an end to incitement. This should become evident in a complete loss of funding by the Palestinian Authority and perhaps also UNRWA as Abbas will not change nor will their education of hatred and murderous desires against Jews, not just Israeli Jews, but all Jews. This dressing down and allowing it to be known publicly is a new precedent setting act by President Trump. Apparently being on his bad side can become costly.

 

Should the rumors that President Trump desires setting up a secret alliance where Saudi Arabia and Egypt, begin working together again under the direction of the United States which also will have them working in some manner with the Israelis, on the qt; this has all the intricacies of a good spy novel. We have seeming enemies being allied by an overseeing superpower with a new leader who is unlike any other previous leader. The contrast with the previous holder of the office makes Trump a complete game changer. The meetings in Riyadh were likely the most dramatic and far reaching in that President Trump was speaking to fifty Arab leaders and laying down an entirely new set of rules for his time as President. We can bet that many of these rulers long for the previous leader or a close facsimile. Unfortunately for those leaders, for at least four years and barring any surprises, this is what they have to work with. At the other extreme, the Israelis thought they had the change of a lifetime. The reality came up somewhat short as they did not exactly get the complete and total reversal as hoped. On the other side, there were few who were not pleasantly surprised with the public dressing down of Mahmoud Abbas by President Trump. Still, everything is still in the potential phase where there can be many a slip between the bowl and the lips. It remains to be seen how much of what was displayed and what the reality will be once the State Department gets their input and inflict their anti-Israel bias. This is where there needs to be much swamp draining. The lack of moving the embassy was presumably an upsetting bit of news, though if honesty is permitted, this was actually accepted. The news that moving the embassy would very probably become used as the bargaining chip used as a threat against Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority and as reward for Israel is extremely distressing as it makes the whole move questionable. The reason this was no surprise here at BTC was because, something we had previously reported as being the mistake by Prime Minister Netanyahu pressing Iran as more important than all other issues. Prime Minister Netanyahu had stated that Iran was the only Israel problem and refused to discuss any and all other issues until the Iran threat would be settled. Some, including us at BTC, thought this emphasis was used too strongly and that these other issues are equally important as the defensibility of Israel depends on having a defensible depth at the middle of the country. The nine miles which the Green Line offers is not acceptable and Abbas and the Arab world realize this and that is why their demand is for all the lands. Somewhere in the near future Israelis will need to wake up and find new and inspired leadership. We hope that day comes soon as the new leadership has already made themselves known and obvious, now we just need everyone else to catch on and see the light. Hopefully this will happen before another anti-Israel President is elected in the United States and the threat to Israel become unbearable.

Miss Janis Joplin May Have Got It Right

 

Janis Joplin often talked about feelings and the state of the world before each song. I think it was on her Greatest Hits Album where she first stated an interesting philosophical idea that “I don’t understand how come you’re gone, man. I don’t understand why half the world is still crying, man, when the other half of the world is still crying too, man, I can’t get it together. If you got a cat for one day, man I mean, if you, say, say, if you want a cat for 365 days, right you ain’t got him for 365 days, you got him for one day, man. well I tell you that one-day man, better be your life, man. because, you know, you can say, oh man, you can cry about the other 364, man, but you’re gonna lose that one day, man, and that’s all you’ve got. You gotta call that, man. that’s what it is, man. if you got it today you don’t want it tomorrow, man, cause you don’t need it, cause as a matter of fact, as we discovered in the train, tomorrow never happens, it’s all the same f&$%#ing day, man.” (video below) Often when writing about the world events and politics you run smack-dab into this very reality because nothing really noteworthy often is the case one day to the next. You probably figured it out, today is one of those days and it really has been one of those weeks. When the biggest leftist complaint about the Trump team was that his Press Secretary Sean Spicer, talking and caught planning off to the side before a media session about the firing of FBI Director James Comey near, aside, not actually hiding in some bushes. The media event was in the Rose Garden or somewhere on the White House grounds; so there was no backstage as there is in the Media Center. There is just the great outdoors and he attempted to get a private meeting real quick before meeting that Sean Spicer has likely figured out is a largely hostile group, the media et al. Had he not caught up and gotten all the information straight before meeting the media, he would have been pounded for not being prepared, so it was a lose-lose apparently. That has been the really big story this week with claims and predictions that he is about to be fired and this big deal may be the reason, oh, and the parodies of him on SNL, those too are big. When parodies on Saturday Night Live are a major part of a news story about White House senior staff, well, it’s all the same stinking day, man.

 

 

Reality is that things have calmed for a while. There is still high tension over North Korea and their nuclear and missile programs. The huge, and we mean HUGE news this week was a report that Iran and North Korea might, yes the report said might, be working together exchanging information and test results and possibly carrying out tests for each other. That was supposed to be the big news, which means nothing new has happened. We reported in our June 2, 2015, article, “Russia Assisting United States Facilitating Nuclear Super Iranian State” in the second paragraph right above the “before” and “after” picture of the North Korean style nuclear reactor paid for by Iran being built in Syria to provide plutonium for Iran and destroyed by an Israeli strike, that the two were colluding together on nuclear and missile technology and production of both. It really is a slow week when that kind of old news is touted as the really big discovery. But, even the tension over North Korea and the United States nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson, and her escort vessels being anywhere near North Korea has become a non-issue. China resisting placing more pressure on North Korea to tone it down a notch also faded from the news cycle. And even President Trump has not done anything to send volcanos exploding on Facebook since firing FBI Director Comey and changing instantly the Democrat and leftist view of Comey from the villain for announcing reopening the investigations of Hillary Clinton and her e-mails to the hero who was finally getting too close to finding the smoking gun about Trump and the Russians. Of course the leftists still chasing the Russian destroyed American democracy and gifted the election to Trump theory apparently, as we noted in yesterday’s article, have yet to hear that Senator Dianne Feinstein, as covered by the Los Angeles Times, there has been absolutely no evidence of Russian interference or influencing of the election. It has been a slow couple of days.

 

The news has become so plain and milquetoast that it appears that the whole world is attempting to emulate Canada, where people go to hide from the world’s troubles and have usually a restful time. When we are reporting leading with any troubles in Canada, then you know that the world is a real mess and ready to explode. Fortunately, Canada has been quiet of late. France had their runoff election and the left-leaning candidate, Emmanuel Macron, won. That means there are actually two news stories here. The first is France awoke to their nightmare scenario with Marine Le Pen as one of the two top candidates and having an actual shot at becoming the next French President. The second is that France did not have a true, blue, through and through leftist socialist all the way candidate and had to settle for a somewhat slightly left leaning candidate for President. Needless to say, in France, heads are slung low and they are acting ashamed for not electing their usual as left as you can get without being the Green Party candidate to the Presidency. The fact the French did not vote Marine Le Pen into office as President was as predictable as predicting that a ball dropped from the Leaning Tower of Pisa will fall straight to the ground assuming the dropper was intelligent enough to use the correct side. Now, had Marine Le Pen won the French election, we would have been hearing about election fraud and possibly the Russians more secretively and stealthily influencing the election getting her elected as the French would never vote for somebody that far to the right. There might have been more to the theory that such an outcome was impossible in France and we would have probably agreed, but then again, after BREXIT and Donald Trump, who is to say what is possibly and what is not. The fact we are discussing what-if’s is further proof that there is not much to cover that even resembles new news.

We could talk a little on coming events. One such will be the Sunday, September 24, 2017, German elections for Chancellor. Each party has placed their leader, or one of their leaders, into the race. There is Angela Merkel (CDU/CSU), Martin Schulz (SPD), Dietmar Bartsch with Sahra Wagenknecht (Left), Katrin Göring-Eckardt plus Cem Özdemir (Green), Christian Lindner (FDP), Alexander Gauland as well as Alice Weidel (AfD). In all reality, the race will likely come down to Angela Merkel against Martin Schulz to see which is capable of putting together a coalition. Before that we have the British elections on Thursday, June 8, 2017, for Prime Minister which comes down basically to two people, Theresa May (Conservative) and Jeremy Corbyn (Labour). Personally, I prefer the incumbent, Theresa May, over Labour Party leader and heavily anti-Israel, Jeremy Corbyn. Mr. Corbyn has also faced hate speech charges for anti-Semitic statements and slurs he has used in public, which are seen as an indication that he has difficulty with Jews as well as a number of other groups, Muslims not among them. For some reason the followers of Islam are not the enemies of Mr. Corbyn, just mainly Jews. The news we are approaching with a fair degree of trepidation, at least personally, is the upcoming visit to Israel by President Trump, along with the Vatican and Saudi Arabia later this month. A visit to the home of the Roman Catholic Church, the birthplace of the Jews faith and the birthplace of Islam can only mean that this visit will be closely watched, as will any Tweets posted by the President in the hopes of gaining insights and guessing what is on President Trump’s mind and his agenda. His time in Israel will likely get the lion’s share of the news, as the potential for breaking with traditions is always a possibility as President Trump has actually himself played his cards very close to his chest and not let out much news. Even those in his Cabinet and Inner Circle have given differing views of where the President is planning on going with each phase of his trip. At least there will be news, and that is good for us and we will have to wait to see what it will be for everyone else. Despite this being good for us, as it will generate the news cycle, we still may come out disappointed at many things both done and not done. There is still a reason to visit as while we may be upset at things President Trump may or may not do in Israel, who we would blame is likely to be more of a surprise than expected. We will have to wait and see as President Trump might do the things we most desire despite the mistakes made by all too many Israeli leaders.

The Death of the Reformation and Spread of Islam

 

The reformation of Christianity broke Christian faith from its ties to a corrupt Vatican and Papal excesses. One of the main differences and unanswered complaints against Rome was the selling of absolution to wealthy aristocracy thus allowing the Church to gain material gain for forgiveness of the sins of the most wealthy while the poor were left facing condemnation despite their hard lives and desperate need for an understanding Church. This was to prove to be a strange affair when now many Protestant churches are forgiving sins as a last resort to gain membership, a move the most religious blame for the death of their denominations and the currently swelling ranks of Evangelical churches which preach a return to Scripture and taking a literal interpretation of faith. A large part of the decline of the old Churches has been their evolutionary drift away from their austere origins and seeking new interpretations which often twist doctrine to the breaking point and many even further until their doctrine bears little resemblance to the origins of Christianity.

 

Christianity is far from alone in this as Judaism has also had its reformation though we just refer to them as the Reform and Reconstructionist Movements. The Reconstructionist Movement has been true to its name and built a form of Judaism which is more form and less Judaism and allows virtually any doctrine to be accepted through democratic vote. They are more of a political leftist haven wishing to have a claim of affiliation with Judaism which may have once existed but died long ago and now exists largely in name only. The Reform branch of Judaism can be viewed as including the branch of Conservative Judaism as their movement to the left politically and more permissive form of Judaism at a slower rate, but was in all reality the same smorgasbord cafeteria Judaism where you went through the Halachic Laws and chose the ones with which one was comfortable and discarded those which were considered onerous or simply too difficult. The Reform Movement permitted women ordained as Rabbis, mixed marriage ceremonies even having a dual role of Priest or Minister and a Rabbi officiating, and eventually Gay unions. The Conservative movement has reached these concessions in most congregations currently. The intermarriage and eventual loss of connection with Judaism and complete assimilation has come close to fruition for Reform Jews so much so that some congregations have begun a return to traditions and a stricter interpretation of Torah. This last gasp attempt to retain a sufficient attachment to Judaism is guaranteed to fail and the death of these two movements will arrive when their members, who wish for an actual and lived faith, will simply return to the Orthodoxy and the rest will have absolutely no use for their faith at all. The final straw will be acceptance of complete Bar/Bet Mitzvah Ceremonies done completely in a language other than Hebrew and the use of scripture in books in lieu of Torah Scrolls as the Torah Scrolls will be seen as a revenue business rather than a strict actualizing of tradition and the steadfast holding to tradition which predates history.

 

Just as traditions, Halachic stringency, community, and a holding to the word and original interpretations and applications of the law and of Torah of the Orthodoxy, especially as it currently thrives in the majority of areas in Israel and in its strongholds in the United States and Europe will be the only form of Judaism practiced in the world, so will the traditionalist branches of Christianity which will survive and will slowly reconnect, independent of Europe and possibly even independent of Rome and the Vatican, as Europe is about to be subsumed by Islam and Christianity erased from the landscape of Europe completely. The influx of the Syrian refugees and the terrorists implanted will be the ones who finally get to dictate the future of what was once the stronghold and bastion of Christianity, the Church and the seeding of Christianity throughout the world. The battle for the heart of Europe is in its closing chapters and Christianity in the Middle East and North Africa will die alongside each other in the next half century. What remains to be seen is whether the conquest of Europe will cause a reformation within Islam as it spreads over all of Europe and begins its march into Asia.

 

This will not be Islam’s first foray into the Far East. Islam needed some fierce troops to act as their shock troops when attack and taking their nascent faith out of Mecca and Medina into the Middle East against the remnants of Persia, Alexander’s Greece, Rome (the Byzantines), the remainder of ancient Egypt from the Polemic Egypt and the rest of the tribes across Northern Africa and against the impervious walls of Constantinople whose wall withstood everything thrown at them for over two centuries. The Christian stronghold held behind its walls, its impressive and unprecedented walls with the possible exception of Troy, Jericho, Jerusalem and China, hunkered down and secure but the siege cannons (see below) employed by Mehmed II were a match for any wall ever built, breached the walls and Constantinople was named Istanbul to the shuddering horror of Christians throughout Europe as it spelled potential doom. Meanwhile Islam had torn across Northern Africa and onto Spain only to finally be halted at Tours, France by Charles the Hammer Martel who routed the Islamic juggernaut turning back into Spain where they were finally vanquished by the Spanish Inquisition instigated and plied by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain. The needed shock troops for the Islamic forces were tempted to join the Islamic armies. These troops were found with the spread of Islam into Indonesia around 1200s and the Philippines in mid-1300s. This provided the additional forces and shock troops which propelled Islam into Spain along with Berber troops who provided the main force for Islam in Western Europe.

After being blunted by Martel in France in Western Europe and at Vienna in Eastern Europe, Islam settled down and had its internal challenges. A war with the United States over the Barbary Pirates twice revealed that the young United States, even back in those early days, was fully capable of projecting power eventually settling as the Ottoman Empire. This final iteration ended during World War I when the Ottoman Empire chose to back the Austro-Hungarian Empire against the Allies resulting in the Allied European powers redrawing the borders and establishing new borders throughout Central and Western Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa. There are constant denunciations of the European colonialism in the Middle East and Northern Africa while the world is totally ignoring the thousand years of colonial occupations by the Arab powers which exploded from the Arabian Peninsula around 700 AD. Islamic nations were released from their colonial occupations between the 1920s through the earliest 1950s making the longest of colonial occupations to under half a century, a negligible timeframe when compared to the Islamic occupation, which when one thinks about it, continues despite the European marshalling after World War I.

 

Islam is awakening and started their new rise smashing against the nascent state of Israel over 1948 through 1949 and renewed aggressions in 1967 and 1973 while instigating terrorism from the 1920s through and continuing to this very day. Islam is taught that their warriors are invincible and must never face defeat as Allah cannot be defeated and any defeat is a form of shame on Allah inflicted by his believers. This has been the root of the war against Israel and the reason that no peace can be attained not because the Jews are refusing to sacrifice but because the Arab Islamists refuse to accept anything short of the annihilation of Israel and the complete and total victory of Islam against the Jew. The other problem is rampant though unrecognized anti-Semitism in the halls of power added to the fear of a resurgent Islam cripples the west and the United Nations from being a fair or honest arbiter which is why the pressure is always placed on Israel to sacrifice and provide tempting morsels until there are no morsels short of surrender of Israel itself left to give; yet the demand made even this day by United States Vice President Joe Biden is for more flexibility by Israel in giving even more where there is nothing left to give. The Presidency of Barack Obama has granted Israel one favor by their complete and total aggressiveness against Israel in their dealings and complete refusal in recognizing any right of the Jews to their homeland has been their laying bare the unadulterated aggressiveness to force Israel without any trace of Arab acceptance of the right of Israel to exist in any border and their and the rest of the world’s complete acceptance of the sacrifice of Israel on the alter of Islamic appeasement as if such would even in the slightest appease and soothe the savage beast. The reality is this complete and unadulterated desire to sacrifice Israel before the alter of Allah, the modern alter of Baal and the Arabic Moon god, has empowered Islam to believe that Europe itself, the stronghold of Christianity for two-thousand years is as fragile and weakened with no real faith or force from above and all but devoid of the graces from Heaven is an empty trampling shell ready for the onslaught by Islam and the complete surrender without so much as a fight as they are willingly inviting Islam to take the leading role in their future as they desire no longer to control their own destiny. The European people no longer care about the future as they have few if any children and have already surrendered their future to Islam and hope only that the chains of their servitude weigh lightly on their posterity leaving that as their only legacy.

 

The question is no longer how far into Europe Islam will spread nor whether or not the Churches of Europe including the Vatican itself will survive; all are already surrendered to Islam and the toll in blood and treasure the sole remaining variable. The hope of the West and Christianity must be to save the treasures of the museums, art galleries and the Vatican vaults by removing them to safe keeping be that the United States, Canada, South America or wherever the society is still resilient and holding sufficient faith that they will not fold before Islam in quiet remission as Europe appears prepared to submit herself. The question to pose to Europe is whether they feel that their societal history and the greatness which went before is worth saving. If the Europeans believe that their history has any value today then they must necessarily be prepared to make not only a sacrifice to preserve it before the ravages of Islam as displayed so graphically by the Islamic State, but also find a belief around which to rally and find the means of restoring both a next generation and the desire for the continuing generations after that into the future or there will be no European museums of art, literature, sculpture and her grand cathedrals will be disembodied from all things Christian and Islam will literally paint the entire last twelve centuries of Christendom from the pages of history with a sweeping of the continent removing every last vestige of Christianism. The Reformation, which was designed to restore and defend Christianity from what they saw as the defaming of the religion of Christ which they accused the Pope and the Cardinals of the Catholic Church, will now end with the loss of unity of Christendom and be a contributing factor to the death of Christendom in Europe. There are those who complain that had only Christianity had not fragmented in the reformation, then Christianity would today remain unfragmented and stand a chance of withstanding the coming onslaught of Islam and perhaps may have preserved political core strength which would resist inviting masses of Islamic refugees within the halls and gates of Europe. Perhaps a unified Church might have held the societies within its halls and adapted such that retaining a Europe which retained sufficient pride, valuing and love of European history and the valuable contributions in art, music, literature and religious thought that they desired to continue the traditions to the next generations, something requiring a next generation.

 

The real crippling of Europe is that lack of a following generation of native Europeans which has left Europe in the start of a downward spiral where the next generation will have less population than the current generation and in all to many nations far less leading to an unrecoverable trend from which Europe, and any society, cannot recover without unparalleled leadership. Such leadership is not represented by the likes of Angela Merkel or unfortunately any of the current national leftist leaders. Can Europe be saved or has Europe fallen in silent surrender brought on by the current generations live for today, who cares about tomorrow selfish attitude. The question is bordering on asking how long will Europe survive before surrendering to Allah as has every Muslim since the Seventh Century, not whether Europe will fall. What a sad ending to such a noble past, the likes of Newton, Galileo, Copernicus, Nobel, Curies, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Chaucer and Bach amongst so many others from such a rich history and additionally those who excited the imaginations of the founding fathers of the American colonies when crafting a new nation of the United States, Locke, Hobbes, Montesquieu, Hume and Rousseau amongst others. For such a history to fall and be erased and vanquished forever will be a sin beyond compare throughout known history. The loss will be painful to watch but we may all live long enough to experience these horrific death throes of Europe and hopefully witness an epic struggle saving all that which can be readily moved to safer climes as less than an all-encompassing effort would be a crime laid atop that sin of the death of all Europe. This is one time we pray we are completely wrong and Europe awakens in time to save themselves, and this prayer had best be heeded by the United States and any other Western nation whose population currently relied too heavily on immigration, legal and otherwise.
