Take or not to take Muslim refugees?
Various Jewish groups support taking the Muslim refugees in great numbers to the USA.
“Jewish groups blasted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his proposal to block all Muslims from entering the United States. “A plan that singles out Muslims and denies them entry to the U.S. based on their religion is deeply offensive and runs contrary to our nation’s deepest values,” the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement Monday evening, hours after Trump, a real estate billionaire and reality TV star, issued his call.” “On December 2, a letter signed by one thousand rabbis was delivered to Congress calling on “our elected officials to uphold the great legacy of a country that welcomes refugees.” The leadership of virtually all of the Jewish defense organizations, from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to the American Jewish Committee (AJC), have echoed these demands to admit thousands of Syrian refugees”.
Various Jewish groups justify their support for Muslim immigration to the USA by reminding us that the USA has been a country of immigrants and that the Judeo-Christian morality is based on “treating your neighbor as yourself”.
However, those two reminders are false.
Yes, indeed, our country has been a country of immigrants. However, all those immigrants of the glorious past – from UK, Germany, France, Serbia, Spain, Jews from Russia and Poland, etc. – have been people of Judeo-Christian tradition, faith and mind-set. They have been arriving to this country not to change it spiritually but to adjust to American interpretation of the Bible guidance. Some people of not Judeo-Christian spirituality, such as Chinese or Japanese for example, were immigrating to this country as well. However, they were arriving to this country with clear understanding that their faith does not prohibit them to live in peace socially and politically in a Judeo-Christian country.
With the Muslim immigration, the situation is completely different. Quran demands from the true Muslims as a religious obligation to make any land, where the true Muslims immigrate to, the land of Islam.
“O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.” (Sura 5, verse 51).
“And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah DESTROY them; how they are turned away!” (Sura 9, verse 30).
“And KILL them (the unbelievers) wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.” (Sura 2, verse 191).
That is at the core of beliefs of the true Muslims. Of course, some Muslims would like to create a new, peaceful version of Islam. However, they are in minority. The true, aggressively anti-Judeo-Christian Muslims are in the majority in any massive Islamic immigration. Europe is the best example of it – look at what is going on in France, in Great Britain, in Sweden, in Belgium …
Europe has been trying to “treat their new Islamic neighbors as yourself” … and failed. Why? Because those who are trying to murder you – even spiritually – are not your Biblical neighbors. They are your Biblical adversaries and you have to treat them as adversaries until they stop murdering you spiritually … and physically.

The only way to win the war against Islamists in Paris and elsewhere is to strengthen our Judeo-Christian spirituality
People who do not like or even hate the words ‘Judeo-Christian spirituality’ have to realize if they want to preserve their universe of democracy and freedom, they have to understand that democracy and freedom themselves without any inner spirituality are doomed to be defeated by a true antagonistic spirituality which nowadays is Islam. Of course, the good Muslims can change Islam from inside to make it friendly to Judeo-Christian spirituality but unfortunately, there is no evidence that is at work now.
In essence, spirituality is an inner search for the very reason for human existence in general and the existence of any individual life in particular. When we are at war with somebody, we are defending our spirituality that is our way of moral life, although it looks like we are defending our physical bodies from being murdered. If we do not have the spirituality to defend, those with a strong adversary spirituality are most probably going to defeat us.
That is what is going on in Paris these days, what is at the core of Israeli-Palestinian confrontation and of current Islamic immigrants’ assault on Europe, and what is in the making for the USA. In a war, although it looks like we are defending our physical bodies, we are defending our spirituality. There is no reason to defend the physical bodies – everybody knows they will soon decease anyway.
Islamist incomers in France are not terrorizing Paris to obtain “equal rights” or eliminate “discrimination” – they are fighting to eliminate the Judeo-Christian spirituality around them and have all France spiritually Islamic. They murdered near 127 people and injured much more under the battle cry “Allah Akbar” the true meaning of which is “Islam everywhere”.
Palestinians are not fighting for an extra piece of land for their own state or for their human rights – they are fighting to eliminate the Jewish (Judeo-Christian) spirituality near them and to have all Middle East spiritually Islamic. The Palestinians have the same battle cry “Allah Akbar”.
The November 2015 mass murdering of Jews and Christians in Paris by a well-organized Islamic group is forcing us once again to define the enemy and find a winning strategy.
If we define the enemy as violent extremists with no clear spiritual mission, as President Obama wants us to believe, we will be defeated – in some not too distant future, the spiritual Islamic flag will be flying over the dispirited White House and the dispirited Elyseе Palace.
We have to define the enemy as it is – as a powerful adversary spiritual Islamic universe bent on destroying our Judeo-Christian universe, as the enemy defines itself. If we define the enemy as it is, we may realize that to win the war we have to begin restoring and strengthening our Judeo-Christian spiritual foundation, and we have to create a strategy for spiritually containing the Muslim world until the good Muslims reform this world.
The French Jews have already realized the need for such actions. France’s umbrella group of French Jewish communities, CRIF, called for “merciless war” against radical Islam. CRIF’s unusually harsh-worded statement immediately followed the news that at least 127 people were killed in a series of terrorist attacks in Paris and its northern suburb of Saint-Denis, which French President Francois Hollande said were an “act of war” committed by the Islamic State. “The global war against the monstrosity of jihadist fanaticism must become an absolute priority of democratic nations,” CRIF wrote in a series of messages on Twitter. “We must fight it without mercy, without relenting, in order to vanquish it.”
The majority of Israeli Jews know that Israel is not fighting “violent extremist groups” – they know Israel is fighting violent Islam bent of destruction of Israel as a leading representative of Judeo-Christian spirituality.
Unfortunately, not all American Jews understand the spiritual war the violent Islam is conducting against our Judeo-Christian civilization as was evident at the recent gathering of the Reform Jews in Florida – they should pay less attention to Obama’s thoughts and more to the true Islamic intentions.
