“Religious test” for immigration? – Yes, if understood correctly


 

From the news media:

 

The Canadian House of Commons has passed motion M103, which singles out the criticism of Islam as a form of “Islamophobia”. Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party, tabled motion M103. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”.

 

————

 

So what is religion of Islam in the contemporary Judeo-Christian civilization – religion of peace we should joyfully coexist with, or religion of violence that should be feared and restricted in our own “Judeo-Christian home”?

 

Any religion has two critical components.

 

One of them is the belief in the existence of Almighty Super Power called God who created us the humans (and of course, everything else), guides us in our lives, rewards us if we obey and discipline us if we misbehave. Our religious institutions (synagogues and churches) are the deliverers of God’s guidance.

 

This critical religious component – the belief in the existence of Almighty Super Power called God – does not require any test for Muslim immigration into the Judeo-Christian America since our nation was created as a nation blessed by God. Indeed, the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence says: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”. Our Constitution had been written with necessary provisions for forcing our political institutions to secure those God-given unalienable Rights.

 

However, the other critical component of any religion affects, and affects intensely, the functioning of a nation, and this is a religious ideology. Like a secular ideology, this ideology defines what is Good and what is Bad in human behavior, and how to support Good and suppress Bad through the government legislative work. Although the religious leaders declare what is Good and what id Bad in the name of God, their declarations are not the word of God – their declarations are their human interpretation of what may or may not be the true God’s guidance.

 

That is why in the area of religious ideology various religions are differing significantly. Some of them are comparable with our founding Judeo-Christian religious ideology while some are adversarial.

 

If the founding national ideology is infected by an adversarial ideology, a nation is on the way to very destructive disturbances. That is why the religious immigration test for this religious component is not just necessary but is the matter of national destiny.

 

The ideological religious test should be based on the Judeo-Christian founding ideological ideas something like the following.

 

·         Do you believe the government should provide you with comfortable level of living, or you believe you have to provide a comfortable level of living for yourself and your family through your own work?

 

·         Do you believe you have to resolve your disputes with the others in the nation’s legal institutions, or you believe your traditional courts (sharia courts for example) are the way for you?

 

·         Do you believe all religions are equally important, or you believe in the superiority of your religion?

 

·         Are you familiar with the ideological Judeo-Christian foundation of our country and do believe you can follow it, or you believe you should preserve your old traditions in the new country?

 

·         If the reality proves, you cannot do all in the above, would you agree to return to your native country?

 

We have to apply the religious ideological test to all immigrants to prevent our ideological adversaries from becoming citizens of our country – to prevent people with dangerous ideologies to come to our country and harm our way of life

 

From the news media:

 

A former Labour Party foreign minister has implied the government of Tony Blair was wrong to ignore the religious roots of Islamist terror, urging authorities to ‘take on’ the ideology to defeat terror. Kim Howells, who oversaw the work of MI5 and MI6 during the Blair and Brown years, said Islamist violence is distinct from other forms of terror and Western values such as democracy must be defended.

 

———

 

Yes, it is true. The Islamic religious ideology is indeed looks as incompatible with the American and Western religious Judeo-Christian ideology and therefore has to be subjected to an immigration-related “religious test”.

 

We have to defend our way of life – not to change that of the others


 

The Bible tells us a people has the right to choose the individual-freedom life or a sort of bondage-based life. In our domestic and international politics, we frequently ignore this Bible guidance, trying to impose on the others what is contrary to their own tradition and to force ourselves to accept what is foreign to our own tradition.

 

That is true – the Torah proclaims the right of the people to decide for themselves to be free or to be unfree. If you decide to be free, you are taking upon yourself the responsibility for the wellbeing of yourself, your family, your community, and your nation. If you decide to be unfree, you entrust the wellbeing of yourself, your family and your community, and your nation to somebody who becomes your life authoritative ruler. Without understanding of this Torah/Bible crucial concept, it is almost impossible to build a prosperous nation or a tolerant union of nations.

 

In the Torah – Exodus 21:2-6:

 

If you buy a Hebrew servant, he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything . . . But if the servant declares, ‘I love my master and my wife and children and do not want to go free,’ then his master must take him before the judges. He shall take him to the door or the doorpost and pierce his ear with an awl. Then he will be his servant for life.

In the course of their establishment, some nations, such as Americans and Israelis for example, had chosen the individual-freedom-based life – to be masters of their own lives. Other nations, such as for example Russians, Arabs or Chinese, had chosen to delegate the role of the master to various authoritative human leaders such as Tsars, Kings, Shahs, Presidents, etc. In both cases, the democratic principles are not violated. In the first case, the nation’s majority elects a government that secures the role of masters for their citizens; in the second case, the nation’s majority elects or accepts a government-master with the hope this government would provide everything needed for a “happy life”.

 

The nations that prefer government-masters (Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, …) do not accept mass immigration – they clearly understand the immigrants, because the immigrants are most probably of different traditions, would endanger their own tradition.

 

Unfortunately, some nations where the people are masters of their own lives do not understand it, and the pre-Trump America has been among them.

 

From the news media:

 

Immigrants and the children of immigrants comprise 93 percent of the student population Miami’s Northeast Dade County, 91 percent in Jackson Heights plus North Corona near New York City, 85 percent in Westpark Tollway, in Houston, Texas 78 percent in Annandale and West Falls Church, in northern Virginia. The districts are dubbed “Public Use Micro Areas.” and average roughly 20,600 students.

 

Nearly one-in-four students enrolled in taxpayer-funded schools in 2015 were from “an immigrant household.” In 1980, that share stood at only one-in-thirteen.

 

Over 59 million migrants entered the U.S. in the past five decades. The foreign-born population stood at roughly 42.4 million, or 13.3 percent of the U.S. population, in 2014, according to a 2015 CIS estimate. The Census bureau predicts that the foreign-born population is set to increase 85 percent by 2060. The U.S. is the most popular destination in the world for immigrants and attracts 20 percent of all the world’s migrants.

The pre-Trump American governing “progressive” politicians invented the “political correctness” to get away from the Bible guidance on the God-blessed diversity of human nations. They have done it to justify the goal of transforming a “barbarian and bigoted” society to one that pretends to be civilized, where all are equal – equal not in the opportunities as Bible prescribes but equal in the results as the Communist Manifesto advocates. They have invented code words that let them divide a society into many rival groups and use this rivalry to secure electoral victories.

 

The code words like white supremacy, racism, nationalism, globalism, populism, xenophobia, inclusiveness, diversity, human rights and social justice, hate crimes, minority protection, affirmative action were used to destroy the Torah/Bible-based spiritual foundation of the nation. This foundation is rooted in the belief that the American Torah/Bible interpretation of the essence of human existence is what this nation had selected for building itself.

 

The American domestic and international actions those code words initiated led to a cold civil war in the USA and to worsening our international standing with many countries.

 

Instead of trying to remake Russia, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestinians, Egyptians, and Serbians in our own “image”, we should have negotiate (of course, with the help of our superior military forces) the peaceful coexistence agreements with those countries. These coexistence agreements would obligate them not to work against our international interests while letting them preserve their own traditions/”images” along the lines of Bible guidance.

 

It looks like President Donald Trump understands all that and is working to “Make America Great Again” that is to restore our Bible-based spiritual foundation – however, the resistance is great!

 

 

 

That is a civil war where the very existence of the nation is at stake


 

A nation is not a herd of human species who are being born and deceased on one large piece of land called a country. What distinguishes a nation from a herd is a set of fundamental rules from the Guiding Power that makes individual lives purposeful far beyond their lives in mortal human bodies.

 

At the core of our current civil war is the fact that the two fighting communities define the Guiding Power in a fundamentally different way.

 

One fighting community defines the Guiding Power as an Eternal All-mighty Superpower above us the humans that created all us and provided us with a set of rules for living “in His image and likeness”. In our country, this community is called the Judeo-Christian community. Its Guiding Power called God guides them in the Torah/Bible-inspired actions.

 

The essence of this guidance is well known:

 

We are created spiritually equal in the image and likeness of God Who empowers all human individuals with the ability of being a creative master of the life of him/her-self, his/her family and community. The role of a democratically elected government is to safeguard this ability of human individuals. Everybody has equal opportunities given to him/her by God but realization of the equal opportunities depends on an individual him/her-self. That is why the economic results are different. Some people are rich and some are poor, some live from a paycheck to a next paycheck. Also, there are those who are misfortunate and cannot support themselves and who are helped through the mitzvah/charity.

 

The other fighting community defines the Guiding Power as a human government, which with the help of the news media and powerful social institutions forces us to live along the lines of its rules created to strengthen its own power under the slogans of human rights and social justice. In our country, a most popular name for this community is the Progressive community. This community is guided by the human ideas very close to the ideas, which were presented in the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx.

 

The essence of this guidance is well known as well:

 

The Progressive community are guided by the idea that all people should be economically equal independently of their ability to be creative masters of their own lives and the lives of their families and communities. Therefore, a democratically elected government has to be a provider of economic equality, and to do it through the wealth redistribution.  

 

The civil war between the two communities decides the spiritual future of the nation. Do the nation continue advancing and strengthening its Torah/Bible-guided Judeo-Christian spiritual foundation? Or, the nation rejects this foundation and replaces it by the Progressive foundation which is known as the human rights and social justice?

 

The Judeo-Christian community now has its spiritual leader – it is US President Donald J. Trump – the most able leader of the anti-Judeo-Christian community many believe has been former US President Barak Hussein Obama.

 

The Jews and the Christians are in both communities. However, as some would say, the Jews and Christians in the Progressive community are Jews and Christians “in the name only”, since the Progressive, Communist Manifesto guided principles are adversary to Judeo-Christian principles.

 

The Progressive community, if the Judeo-Christian community defeats it, is going to lose bigly because of drastic reduction in its electoral power base:

 

·         Many millions of government and public taxpayers-paid jobs occupied by the Progressive community spiritual members are eliminated – the “eliminated” would be privately employed

 

·         Immigration of people with non-Judeo-Christian traditions is sharply decreased – the Judeo-Christian community would be strengthen

 

·         Progressive news media is sharply reduced in electoral influence – new pro-Judeo-Christian news media would be born

 

·         Welfare community is sharply reduced in numbers – welfare recipients would be moving to various workplaces or private charity assistance

 

·         Community of people who are receiving the special government protection and benefits (based on race, color of skin, education, wealth, gender, country of origin, religion, etc.) is sharply reduced – the nation would be much more united.

 

We observe the fierce resistance of the Progressive community to all that, that has pushed the nation to a current civil war. The most effective weapon in the arsenal of the Progressive community is the sabotage of all governing actions of the current Judeo-Christian President and the Congress –the sabotage by publishing fake news, by violent street demonstrations, by delaying congressional approvals, by bring to standstill new laws in liberal courts, etc. For the Judeo-Christian community to win, it has to respond very forcefully.

 

That is a civil war where the very existence of the nation is at stake. If the Judeo-Christian community wins, the nation would restore its Judeo-Christian greatness and preserve the nation as its Guiding Power “designed” it. If the Progressive community wins, the nation would become a completely different entity with an unclear future.

 

Real Russian intervention in America – not in the election results


 

From the news media:

 

(CNN) Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice last year with the top Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak in Washington. Sessions did not mention either meeting during his confirmation hearings when he said he knew of no contacts between Trump surrogates and Russians. Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, is considered by US intelligence to be one of Russia’s top spies and spy-recruiters in Washington, according to current and former senior US government officials.

 

—————–

 

The establishment news media continue their campaign of discrediting US President Donald Trump by implying the Russians through their intervention into our election process elected him. Yes, the Russians intervened in our election process and continue to do so, but not with the purpose of electing their “favorite candidate”.

 

To understand the real Russian intervention in America, we have to listen to Vladimir Putin himself. This is what he is saying concerning Russian-American relationships:

 

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=putin+answers+bbc+28%2f02%2f17&qpvt=putin+answers+bbc+28%2f02%2f17&view=detail&mid=836CD3B4A1CD08203E44836CD3B4A1CD08203E44&FORM=VRDGAR

 

According to Vladimir Putin,

 

·         Russia is one of the two world super-powers the other one being the US

 

·         During the turbulent Russian times when Russia was changing politically from the communist dictatorship to Russian-style democracy the US pushed Russia out of many her former sphere of influence and by doing that humiliated Russia

 

·         Now Russia is trying to restore its world super-power position and a sort of restore her dignity – by all means available.

 

So the question is what means are available?

 

Direct military confrontation is not available because the US has unquestionable conventional military superiority over Russia. The conventional weaponry is very expensive and the Russians can provide in their budget no more than a mere fraction (10-15%) of what the US is spending.

 

What is available is the intelligence confrontation, including cyber and “immigration” weaponry, that is much less expensive – that is at the core of real Russian intervention in America. Through this intervention, Putin is working to create the social and political internal discourse in the US and make the US much less inclined to support an international confrontation with Russia.

 

The destabilization of the US political system, not the help to a certain candidate, was the real goal of Russian intervention, and they succeeded. For destabilizing the US, Putin used our all-mighty news media empire, which was fed by endless fake news leaks. Yes, our establishment news media helped Putin in destabilizing our country under the cover of the First Amendment.  

 

Some of Russian immigrants were used as a destabilization tool as well.

 

The massive Russian immigration of the 1970-1980 were mostly Jewish when the Jews were escaping the Russian anti-Semitism and were eager to join the Jewish branch of American Judeo-Christian nation. They wanted to become the true Americans delegating the Russian way of life to the history.

 

In the current Russian immigration, there are many for whom the recreation of Russian way of life in the US is the goal – spiritually they live in Russia, and the US for them is only the place for better housing and better earnings. They do not like and do not appreciate the American way of life – purposely or un-purposely, they destabilize the moral Judeo-Christian foundation of our country, and the Russian Orthodox Church here in the US helps them. The Russian way of life does not separate the Church from the State – the Church is helping the State – that is why in an US Russian Orthodox Church you may hear prayers for Putin.

 

From the news media:

 

FBI Agreed to Pay Spy Who Authored Trump Russia Dossier. A former British spy who prepared a dossier on unsubstantiated allegations of President Donald Trump’s Russian activities was to be paid by the FBI to continue his work while he was getting money from Hillary Clinton supporters to dig deeper into Trump’s past.

 

It is very much possible and probable that behind this “leak” was the Russian intelligence.

 

—————-

 

In the intelligence confrontation, Russia has a much better chance to win. In Russia, the news media and the government establishment do not work against the existing government and the immigration does not exist.

 

So what to do? It looks like only the real threat of military confrontation – already demonstrated somehow somewhere – can bring Putin to the negotiation table. At the negotiation table, the success will depend on the US ability to propose something that could recreate an image of Russia as an equal superpower while preserving the US security and economic interests. Let’s hope US President Donald Trump can do it.

 

Politically correct Jewish actions strengthen anti-Semitic forces


 

From the news media:

 

Jewish groups seek action from Trump to match his words on anti-Semitism. After weeks of combative, dismissive posture from White House, community leaders skeptical at president’s long-awaited condemnation.

 

————–

 

The history is clear on all condemnations: they are not changing the people’s minds, and that is even truer concerning the anti-Semitism.

 

The anti-Semitism is up, as compared to a sort of “normal” level, when what Jewish organizations support harms the traditional Judeo-Christian values – the anti-Semitism is down when the Jewish organizations support the traditional Judeo-Christian values.

 

Currently, the traditional Judeo-Christian values are threatened by the government actions aimed at replacing the Bible-based moral values by politically correct values and at diluting the power of Judeo-Christian communities by increasing the immigration from the non-Judeo-Christian countries.

 

Unfortunately, many Jewish organizations have supported these government actions. That is what increases the level of anti-Semitic “noise” and no US President’s condemnation can change it.

 

From the news media:

 

A majority of Europeans want a ban on immigration from Muslim-majority countries. An average of 55 per cent of people across the 10 European countries surveyed wanted to stop all future immigration from mainly Muslim countries…

 

A majority of US voters support President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily halting migration from terror-exporting countries.

 

—————

 

The Simon Wiesenthal Holocaust Center’s Rabbi Marvin Heir says he understands the new directions the nation is taking under leadership of Donald Trump and that in the interest of all Americans to pray and hope that Donald Trump is a great president. Such statement of a great Rabbi is a signal that the true Jews are together with the traditional Judeo-Christian majority who elected Donald Trump as US President to restore the Judeo-Christian moral foundation of the country. Obviously, such a morally authoritative statement reduces the level of anti-Semitism.

 

However, many other rabbis and Jewish leaders publicly expressed their displeasure with the choice of the American majority, which elected Donald Trump to be their President.

 

Just a few examples: 18 rabbis arrested during NY protest over Trump travel ban…. A Jewish group organized a “Jewish Rally for Refugees” in New York….. Reform Jewish leaders largely oppose President Donald Trump’s policies…. Never-Trump Jews…. Not-My-President Jews …

 

The Jewish movements mentioned above boost anti-Semitic beliefs that the Jews are against the traditional Judeo-Christian values.

 

One more factor strengthens negative feelings of the American majority toward the current wave of immigration from the countries of the Third World. Many of these immigrants do not have working skills suitable for US and European labor markets, and therefore are an extra burden for the taxpayers. Indeed, American taxpayers will spend more than $4 billion in the 2017 budget to support over half-million (mostly not Judeo-Christian) refugees who have been resettled by the federal government in the United States since October 2009.

 

From the news media:

 

ADL: We want action, not just words from Trump against anti-Semitism. Jewish watchdog urges president to take steps to stem wave of incidents after ADL office in NY hit by a bomb threat following four waves of such threats to Jewish centers across America.

 

————–

 

What actions? Any government actions against anti-Semites would rather confirm the anti-Semites’ feelings about the all-mighty Jews who “own” the government and “rule” the others through the government. Instead, what ADL and other Jewish organizations should be doing is to organize authoritative Christian spiritual discussions around the country about the spiritual wrongness of anti-Semitic beliefs.
