Is anybody getting the big picture?

The perpetual hatred and rage of discontent simmering in the Islamic world has already devoured millions of their own neighbors in violence – from the 15-year Lebanese civil war to the 8-year Iran-Iraq war to today’s Syrian civil war to ISIS murdering everyone in their way- especially Christians- in Sudan and the rest of Africa, among many other localities. Can you imagine what they would do to the Jews of Israel if they only could? We thank G-d that we are not as our unarmed fathers in Europe who were trusting in the good will of cultured Germans, but now have a fighting force of strength and integrity, on land, air, sea, and under the sea.

Meanwhile, Islam has brilliantly placed its foot in Europe and put down its root, its rage spreading to London, Madrid, and Paris, and placing Muslims in high positions, including the first ever mayor of London. The same in America as the Liberal Left in their naïve humanistic blindness welcomes all with open arms – especially if they are illegal! Mosques are sprouting throughout the West like mushrooms, even replacing churches, in a very well planned invasion. And the West sleeps on, some even with theologies terrified that the Pope will take over the world.

And yet such august bodies as the United Nations hardly mention the above, while spending its energy and resources in regularly condemning the one viable democracy in the Middle East, and the only nation that is not racist or apartheid: Israel. In Israel Jew and Arab, Christian and Druze and Buddhist and Mormon and Atheist dwell together in freedom in all spheres. But have a Jew accidently drive into an Arab village on the West Bank and watch him be fire bombed.

We have indeed woefully reached the epoch that Isaiah the Prophet describes: ‘Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.’ It is as the days of Noah. Better get on the ark.
