Yes, mass immigration from Islamic countries brings mass anti-Semitism. However, it brings not just mass anti-Semitism but it brings anti-Semitism together with anti-Christianism and anti-Americanism. This statement is not an anti-immigration one. The immigrants have made America, as we know it now. However, America has been made not by immigrants of all religious (or non-religious) beliefs. Only the immigrants with acceptance of Judeo-Christian beliefs have made this country – they were religious Christian and Jews, atheistic Christians and Jews with strong Judeo-Christian morality, and non-Christians who accepted Judeo-Christian societal fabric (such as Chinese or Japanese).
The Muslim immigrants are not among those who have made this country, and there is a good reason for this. The Muslim spiritual beliefs are adversary to the Judeo-Christian spiritual beliefs in one crucial aspect – the Muslims cherish the compulsory uniformed behavior of everybody above the individual freedoms that are at the core of Judeo-Christian beliefs in their American adaptation.
The adversarial relations between the people of Islamic and Judeo-Christian worlds are not due to some theological differences, although they are important – the adversarial relations between them and us are due to opposite visions of the better world for everybody both worlds are trying to promote and create.
The Islamic world is trying to promote and create a “better world”, which is based on a voiceless population ruled by a dictator with his own interpretation of Quranic rules for his population who is fighting the other Islamic rulers who are building a “better world” with their own interpretations of Quranic rules.
We in the Western Judeo-Christian world are trying to promote and create a better world, which is based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles, where individual freedoms and ability of everybody to promote peacefully his/her vision of a better world is cherished.
That is why the mass immigration to America from Islamic countries would inevitably create an adversary destructive social force. Individual Islamic immigration may be accepted if an Islamic immigrant pledges an allegiance to our Judeo-Christian social fabric.
Recently the leader of Germany Angela Merkel has sent a sort of warning to America.
Merkel warns of growing anti-Semitism in wake influx from the Arab World. © AP Photo/ Markus SchreiberShe urged citizens to remain vigilant and to beware of anti-Semitism especially when directed by young people coming from countries where hatred of Israel and anti-Semitism is widespread. Currently, millions of people are claiming to seek refuge throughout Europe as they flee war-battered nations including Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. 1.5 million refugees including several from throughout the Arab world entered Germany in 2015 alone. Merkel says anti-Semitism is more widespread than we imagined. That is why we must act intensively against it. Moreover, Angela Merkel is thinking about sending the Islamic refugees back to own countries after the civil wars there end.
In the USA, Donald Trump who is fighting for Republican Party Presidential nomination has suggested a strategy against the mass Islamic immigration.
Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on: according to Pew Research, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. A poll from the Center for Security Policy shows 25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad. In this poll, 51% of those polled, agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Sharia (Sharia authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women). Unfortunately for America, President Barak Obama likes the mass Islamic immigration.
Indeed, between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period. Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates. From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul called the new policy “a federally sanctioned welcome party to potential terrorists.”
These days Obama is visiting a mosque in America, which is spiritually allied with Muslim Brotherhood, to promote pro-Muslim feelings in our country. Wikipedia describes the goals of Muslim Brotherhood in the following way.
The Brotherhood’s stated goal is to instill the Qur’an and Sunnah as the “sole reference point for … ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community … and state.” Its mottos include “Believers are but Brothers”, “Islam is the Solution”, and “Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of Allah is our wish. It is financed by members, who are required to allocate a portion of their income to the movement, and was for many years financed by Saudi Arabia, with whom it shared some enemies and some points of doctrine.
Let us hope we elect the next American President who understands the dangers of mass Islamic immigration to America, and stops it.
Who assists the fake Zionist regime, who supports them, who clears the road for them, who stands behind them? Western powers headed by America are doing so.
Ayatollah Khamenei is right – the countries of Western civilization headed by America support Israel although this support may not be proclaimed openly by the majority and is clouded by politically correct pro-Islamic statements.
However, he is wrong on the chief reason why the Western countries are doing so. Ayatollah Khamenei wants everybody to believe that the “All-mighty Jewish lobby” forces the Western countries to support Israel against the very Western interests which, as Khamenei implies, are fighting with the Shiites’ Iran against Israel and all Iran’s Sunnis’ Muslim enemies.
Contrary to the Khamenei’s assertions, the chief reason for Western countries to support Israel is the mutual spiritual Judeo-Christian fundamentals, the belief in importance of survival of Judaism as the foundation of Christianity, the fear of Islamic invasion into Western countries, and the understanding that Israel is the first-line defense against Islamic invasion.
The Khamenei’s wish to convince the Western countries not to support Israel is justified … of course, from the Islamic vision of the world. It would make much easier for the Islamic world with Khamenei as the Supreme Leader to destroy Israel and then to begin mass invasion into the Western world with the goal of replacing the Bible-based civil order in the Western world by the Quran/Sharia order. What is much more difficult to justify is the efforts of President Obama to help Iran’s Khamenei in achieving his goals.
UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon:
After nearly 50 years of occupation, Palestinians are losing hope. Young people especially are losing hope. They are angered by the stifling policies of the occupation.
UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon is right – the Palestinians are losing hope.
However, they are not losing hope for creating their own independent state to live in peace with the State of Israel, as Ban Ki-moon implies – they have never wanted such outcome. If that were the wish of the Palestinians, they might have their own independent state long ago. What they are losing is the hope for creating a militarized independent state, which is able to eliminate the state of Israel.
The Ban Ki-moon’s support of the Palestinians in their anti-Israel propaganda war is justified … of course, by the need to have the UN General Assembly pro-Arab, anti-Israel, anti-Western majority voting for him as a UN General Secretary. What is much more difficult to justify is Obama’s support for pro-Palestinian demands in the UN, which are harmful for Israel. However, if the rumor that Obama is planning to become a UN General Secretary is correct, his pro-UN actions looks logical.
I have posted some articles on this subject describing the overwhelming authoritarian mode-of-operations of many Orthodox rabbis as a reason for the Jewish majority not to follow spiritual guidelines of those rabbis.
Indeed, the Jewish majority defines the mission of a rabbi in the following way:
Rabbi literally means “teacher” in Hebrew. In the Jewish community, a rabbi is viewed not only as a spiritual leader but also as a counselor, a role model and an educator. The rabbi leads spiritual services, such as Shabbat services and High Holy Day services on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. He or she will also officiate at life-cycle events such as Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs, baby naming ceremonies, weddings and funerals.
However, a recent statement by Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, the Head of Yeshivat Har Bracha and a prolific author on Jewish matters, took me again to the subject.
Concerning a person who contends with his rabbis, our Sages, Chazal said: “Whoever contends against the ruling of his teacher is seen as though he contended against the Divine Presence, Shechinah, and whoever quarrels with his teacher is seen as though he quarreled with the Shechinah” (Sanhedrin 110a; Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh De’ah 242:2). They question, resent, quarrel and oppose our teacher, Rabbi Tzvi Yehudah Kook zts”l and all his students, among whom are their own parents and teachers.
Rabbi Melamed is changing the very essence of one of the most important Torah concepts. The Torah declares any human is created in the image and likeness of God – rabbi Melamed wants his students-humans to be created in his own image and likeness.
Rabbi Melamed deifies the role of a rabbi – he requires his constituency (in a synagogue, in a yeshiva) to obey his rules of behavior and not to exercise their individual freedom of thinking that may bring a different behavioral decision.
The Orthodox rabbinical majority agrees with the definition of rabbi as authoritarian. I know it firsthand. For many years, I have been trying to discuss with many orthodox rabbis in Israel and the USA the application of Torah guidance to my own Jewish life in political, social, scientific and spiritual realms of the Judeo-Christian countries where I has been living. And I discovered that for a truly orthodox rabbi a Torah-based discussion with an ordinary Jew is a sort of insult to his position of authority – he believes he is to rule, not to discuss.
A truly orthodox rabbi may believe he is not an authoritarian – he is a teacher. If it is so, what kind of teacher is he? There two types of teachers.
Some teachers teach the dogmas in their fields of education and demand from the students to follow unquestionably the dogmas. Those teachers believe in the unchangeable world – they believe what God created at the Beginning remains unchangeable. If it is so, the dogmas created at the beginning are applicable nowadays.
Other teachers teach how the dogmas were created and how to change them if the life-changing circumstances make the dogmas inapplicable. Those teachers believe God created the world developing – developing along the laws of nature created by God Himself. As a scientist, I am with this group.
Anti-Semitism is rising in Europe and in the Middle East:
Germany: in an Islamic attack, two men claiming refugee status assaulted and robbed a Jewish man at a northern port.
Ukraine: a Molotov cocktail thrown at a synagogue.
Iran: Iran’s supreme leader calling for the elimination of Israel.
Palestinian Authority represented by its president Mahmoud Abbas: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we will not agree to the presence of one Israeli in it.
USA: Jewish home in a New York suburb plastered with six swastikas.
|Thus, anti-Semitism is alive and well as has been for over two millenniums.
Many Jews think that anti-Semitism is the intolerance and hate of the Jews as a race or even as humans.
That might be true. However, something more fundamental distinguishes anti-Semitism from any other racial hate. Any other racial hate exists when humans of a hated race are among those who hate them. Anti-Semitism exists even when there is no Jews among those who hate them.
In many Muslim countries, there are no Jews but the hate of the Jews is seen everywhere. In the 15th century Spain after all Jews were expelled, the hate of the Jews remained. In the 19th century Russia, the Jews were prohibited to live in most of the cities – nevertheless, the hate of the Jews was evident in those Jew-free cities.
Anti-Semitism is not just the intolerance and hate of the Jewish people – anti-Semitism is the fearful resistance to the Jewish Torah-guided ideals for the human existence. Those ideals are stubborn and they flourish in many places where there are no Jews – those ideals are the foundation of most religious, political or cultural developments in Western Civilization.
The fate of the Jews and their ideals is unique because, as the true Jews believe, the Jews are fulfilling their God-given mission of the Chosen, which is to help the others build a better world for everybody – a better world on the foundation of Torah-guided spiritual/moral principles. The others do not object to the idea of building a better world – but not for everybody, only for themselves; and not on Torah-guided ideals, on their own ideals.
Many in the historic past hated the Greeks when the Hellenistic empires of the Middle East introduced their ideals to the captive countries. However, when the captive countries freed themselves from the Greeks, the Hellenistic ideals were defeated as well. The anti-Hellenism had not been developed since there was no need to resist the non-existent Hellenism.
Many in the recent times hated the Nazis and Communists when the Nazi Germany and the Communist Russia introduced their ideals to the entire world and implemented them in the captive countries. However, when the captive countries were freed by the USA and UK (in the WWII and in the following Cold War), the Nazi/Communist ideals were defeated as well. The anti-Germanism or anti-Russianism had not been developed since there was no need to resist the morally dead Nazism and Communism.
With the anti-Semitism, it is a completely different story.
The Jews are hated since they are, as the Chosen, successfully introducing the Judeo-Christian ideals into religious, political and social spheres of human life. Those ideals are replacing the old heathen ideals and the contemporary heathen people resist.
The Muslims as a group hate the Jewish ideals since the Jewish ideals are replacing the universal Sharia-based dictatorial morality by the individual freedoms.
The Atheists as a group hate the Jewish ideals since the Jewish ideals are rooted in the guidance from the Supreme Power above, which is mandatory for the humans, while the Atheists want to introduce their own ideals.
Some Western Christians hate the Jewish ideals since the Jewish ideals emphasize the building a better life for everybody here in this world while the old-fashioned Christians are longing for a better life in the Heavens.
Some Eastern Christians hate the Jewish ideals since the Jewish ideals promote the true Western-type democracy over the spiritual slavery by dictatorial government.
The unstoppable anti-Semitism reflects the unstoppable success of the Jewish mission as the Chosen and the true Jews and the true Rabbis should appreciate this as a sort of sign of spiritual success.
One of my friends (A) have expressed in a discussion with me his dislike of Donald Trump. I (B) responded by making the point that we may dislike Trump but, to save our country as we know it, we have to elect in 2016 him or somebody like him to be our President. Here are some points of this discussion.
(A): Are you taking Trump seriously among other Republican contenders?
(B): Yes, I am taking him seriously but with a deep anxiety. If any other Republican contender becomes a president, many things will be much better as compared to what we have now and what we may expect from Hilary Clinton who would essentially continue the Obama policies. However, it would be not enough to reverse the country’s decline – the decline will continue although at a slower pace. With Trump, there is a chance to reverse the trend and restore the nation’s greatness, although the risk is great.
(A): Well, if he is nominated, Hillary will have a much better chance to become president. The other problem is Trump is just as inexperienced as Obama was in 2008 and just as narcissistic. Bad combination, in my opinion.
(B): You are right but that is the risk worthwhile to take. All “experienced politicians” who pretend to be “ordinary citizens” have put the country on the way to spiritual and economic decline – that is what we have to remember while choosing whom to vote for.
(A): Trump is surging because “the elites” of both parties have failed miserably in the last 15 years or more, and Obama turned out to be simply anti-American (as most Americans understand it). However, from what I have heard from Trump, I think he has not ideas but good-sounding slogans that are either very difficult or impossible to implement in real life. So if he is elected, I am afraid what will follow is not some renewal of America, but just more chaos. Put another way, I have learned not to trust in a “knight on a white horse”. More likely, though, I think his nomination would rather pave the way for the Clintons and Democrats to remain in power, and that would not be fun.
(B): My assessment of the situation is different. “The elites” as you called them are experienced only in inventing new goodies for the potential electorate to be elected and then do the wealth redistribution from us to them. The Republican “elites” sound much better to our ears but the result is the same and the result is very destructive. I do not believe that the victory of the establishment “experienced” Republicans would create the change we desperately need. In addition to the Republican victory, we need something else. We need somebody to create first a sort of anti-establishment revolution and then somebody else who may create something fresh and new. Trump is a possible candidate for this job – of course, with all risks involved. His business experience for American restoration might be more valuable than the experience of all “experienced politicians” running for the president. Why? Since we do not need more new government programs that all “experienced politicians” are creating – we need good management including a sharp reduction of the ineffective 2/3 of the government, and nothing else. And Trump has the best experience among all of the contenders to do this – to do just “good management”.
(A): The late principled conservative William Buckley once said that a voter must vote for the most conservative candidate who can still be elected. Ronald Reagan was an experienced politician before he became president. In the post WWII USA, there was no president who came to the office without professional political/government background.
(B): We have had conservative Presidents and Congress elected as Conservatives such as Reagan, Bush H., Bush W. However, the march to abyss has not stopped – the taxation is growing under various concealments, the nation’s debt is mounting, the government “free stuff” is rising, the government regulations of individual citizens are increasing, the individual freedoms are shrinking under the pretense of democracy.
Thus, just a conservative government, even following the advice of the great William Buckley, is not enough to stop the march to abyss – we have to change the political thinking, a sort of way of spiritual thinking in this country, in addition to a conservative government, if we are to begin the restoration.
The existing ruling news media and the both-parties establishment have created the current political politically-correct thinking. Therefore, first, we have to dethrone the news media and the establishment, and Donald Trump is the only candidate who is doing it successfully – nobody else. However, all your risk-related points with the Trump’s candidacy are valid.
In conclusion, an almost quote from a popular news media outlet:
Trump is popular and it is undeniable. It is because people are afraid, and Trump is pushing the fear. The Trump is telling the people they should be afraid of Muslims, of Mexican immigrants, of China’s business practices, of President Obama, of Black Lives Matter, of stricter gun laws, of ISIS … However, all those threats are the Trump’s conspiracy to scare the electorate and win the election. Do not trust Trump – trust us the news media and the political establishment we are representing.
The problem is the threats Donald Trump is describing are real and supported by the facts, and the people feel all that. This popular news media, as many others, is deceiving the people by denying the existence of those threats, and it is doing all that to continue profiting from a politically correct march to the abyss.
