Yes, the Western civilization is losing its Judeo-Christian roots and doesn’t defend them anymore from hostile attacks of foreign ideologies. And this retreat now is being led “from behind” by Barak Obama. The following analysis from a trustworthy “Spiegel” of Germany details this situation.
Global Leadership Vacuum: Europe Incapable, America Unwilling
An Analysis By Gregor Peter Schmitz in Munich
February 1, 2013
US Vice President Joe Biden is visiting Germany this week in an effort to strengthen trans-Atlantic ties. Global politics have come to a standstill in recent years, with the United States unwilling to show leadership and Europe and other major powers unable to fill the vacuum. Read the rest of this entry
How One Must Understand the Separation of the Church from the State – both According to the U.S. Constitution and According to the Torah
How this question is deliberately twisted by political and religious leaders.
Let us begin with two official documents where the question of the relationship of church and state is examined.
From the American Declaration of Independence adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776:
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, ratified on December 15, 1791:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

On November 16, 2012, I posted in this blog an article entitled “The Satanic New World Order of Obama” – https://intellectual0judaism0really.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/the-satanic-new-world-order-of-obama/
The article provided my assessment of the Obama’s world vision and of his work on implementation of his vision. The article made the following major points:
- Obama is an extremely gifted and determined leader. The hated-by-many outcomes of his policies are precisely what he is trying to achieve – not the result of his poor and inexperienced leadership.
- What he is trying to achieve is a new world order where an UN-based world authoritarian government will impose on all countries, all peoples and all individuals a sort of Islamo-Marxist “social justice”.
- In accordance with this “social justice”, a UN-based world authoritarian government will forcefully take the wealth accumulated by prosperous countries, peoples and individuals and redistribute it to poor countries, peoples and individuals, with all available tools of forceful redistribution – world-wide mandatory laws in all areas of wealth creation – the laws in social, labor, health, environment, immigration, education areas.
- Since the Obama’s new world order is based on the anti-Judeo-Christian principles, it deserves to be counted in the satanic class of events.
- There are major obstacles on the road to implementation of the Obama’s Islamo-Marxist world-wide “social justice”. They, as described in the article, are:
- The spiritual power of Judeo-Christian moral principles. One has to denigrate the Judeo-Christian spirituality and its moral codification in the Ten Commandments as something too extreme and outdated and not suitable for governing a contemporary nation and the entire world. To do this you have to begin with denigration of the originators of this spirituality, the Jewish people and their spiritual heart, the state of Israel.
- The spiritual unity of the people which encourages looking for a common ground for peaceful coexistence. One has to split a nation and the world into numerous feuding factions that would be unable or unwilling to find a compromise for peaceful coexistence. One would have to present himself as a savior to the dissatisfied who would lead them to defeat all other groups in that society.
- The inequality of material wellbeing between so-called rich and so-called poor. Somebody in power should confiscate the assets of society’s wealthy groups and redistribute this wealth among underprivileged groups – for now, these underprivileged groups would be satisfied and give their leader unconditional support.
- The constitutional separation of powers preventing an establishment of authoritative government. Somebody would have to establish a dictatorial government to preserve and reinforce one’s power as a human god over the citizens/slaves of society. That is the end – a satanic new world order is established.
The past-month advances in moving toward the new world order of Obama are impressive and they are described below in the words of many publications of the month.
(1) Obama covertly encourages EU leaders to present the Israel’s decision on building new homes in Jerusalem as something foreign to the goal of the Middle-East peace. It looks like Obama is trying to delegalize the state of Jerusalem as the eternal spiritual capital of the Jewish people and the physical capital of the state of Israel. Read the rest of this entry
One can single out the two groups of Jews in Judaism who worry about the future of the Jewish people.
The first group is the Jews of the traditional interpretation of the Torah. They firmly believe that their understanding of the essence of the Jewish existence is uniquely correct and unshakeable because it is based on the experience of Jewish people through the millennia. Everything that lies beyond the scope of their understanding of the “correct” in any kind of publication causes their immovable or agitated reaction. The result of such a reaction is the following ideas in the press: it is the expression of a heretic, such-and-so a rabbi long ago already refuted it, it contradicts such-and-so a tradition, aha – he is a reformist, he does not believe in the holiness of the oral Torah, he simply is uneducated about Judaism, and so forth.
The second group is the Jews of the intellectual interpretation of the Torah. They firmly believe that their comprehension of the essence of Jewish existence cannot be uniquely correct, because life is complex and changes constantly, because God is even more complex and the comprehension of Him cannot be confined only to one. If they see in some kind of publication something that lies outside the scope of their understanding of “correct,” they are happy for it: they see that the interpretation of the Jewish essence, afforded by the first group, does not make it possible to understand modern life, and they hope that the new things appearing in the interpretation will allow them to embrace modern life better while remaining 100 percent Jewish.

Each country has her own definition of what is GOOD and what is EVIL and this definition is unique and makes the country and the people of this country unique. Each country is strengthening the GOOD and constraining the EVIL in domestic and international affairs.
Politics is a tool for creating government and public forces capable and aimed at strengthening the GOOD and fighting the EVIL.
So what is the moral foundation for defining the GOOD and the EVIL in our country? Read the rest of this entry
