Recently [May 2004] I met up with a non-Jewish Canadian acquaintance who is married to a Jew. They are both well-educated people of the liberal to left persuasion, holding firm views on world events involving such issues as poverty, equal opportunities and human rights. She is a particularly vocal and forthright woman with strong opinions founded in her resolve to be humanitarian. Living a modern busy life schedule my acquaintance has subscribed to the prevalent inaccurate but popular perception of Islam as the ancient religion with its Arab adherents being threatened by the usurper Jews who have occupied their ancient land of Palestine to ethnically cleanse it of Muslims and she queries the reason the Jews need a country at all, not least in the region of ancient Israel. She also takes a rigid stance against the US led Allied action in Iraq.
My acquaintance represents a microcosm of the increasing number of anti-war protesters who march the streets in the millions together with the Palestinian pro terrorist lobby as though being anti-war and pro terrorist is one and the same, displaying a total incongruity of thought processes. Coupled with this, leaders in the West who are increasingly conscious of the sensibilities of religious intolerance, have declared a war on terrorism, camouflaging the fact that the world is currently involved in a war that presents a real and present danger, not only in the Middle East, but to the demise of democracy and Western Civilisation.
For this current war is one of an imperialist totalitarian ideology utilising stealth, coupled with terrorism, as the means of achieving its goal. A war on terrorism in general is therefore illogical, allowing a loophole through which propaganda for the new imperialist threat can filter.
Prior to WWll, the general reaction among the international community was no different from what it is today. It was clear to Churchill that war was imminent, but the majority in the West regarded him as something of a maverick and tried desperately to discredit him, just as the liberal ideologues tried to do with Thatcher and Reagan and are currently doing to Bush. These interminable ideologues cloud their vision by their resolve to expound liberalism rather than enact democracy and freedom.
They relished the collapse of the Berlin wall without aforethought as to the fallout of such a speedy dramatic change in global stability. Today the world is still reeling from the effects of tearing down that wall, not least in the Middle East from where terrorism emanates to the four corners of the globe. These liberal ideologues never really understood the mechanisms of the cold war and they do not understand the workings of the current dictators. They are therefore easy prey for the mollification tactics of tyrants and demagogues.
History shows that the success of such mollification is founded in a charismatic tyrannical ideology and a handy scapegoat. Nazism and Communism were the ideological threats of the last century, replaced now by Islamic Imperialism. It is not coincidence that the Islamic leaders supported the Axis in WWll or that the USSR fostered their cause with financial aid and military training. There is a link between these three ideologies – they are all totalitarian in nature with a view to world dominance. Such ideologies benefit from a handy scapegoat as catalyst for their cause.
Throughout history, from the destruction of the Temple in 70 BCE, through the expulsion of Jews from England in 1290, to the Spanish Inquisition in 1478 and WWll in 1939, as well as the continued systematic ethnic cleansing of Jews in most Islamic states, the Jew has fulfilled the role of scapegoat most adequately. None of these movements would have gained popular support without creating a common enemy to unite their people – as always, the Jew depicted as controller: running their land, taking their jobs and squeezing them out of the benefits of their economy.
In the past the Jew served these tyrants well, being a nation without a state with nowhere to go except a certain death as the greater world gave tacit support. During the last century, after first appeasing the Nazis prior to WWll, the UK was forced to defend its own borders whilst the rest of Europe was either occupied by the Nazis, or became willing Nazi accomplices as a result of deliberate collaboration or on-going trade with the German industrial machine under the guise of being neutral. Ultimately only once the USA became directly threatened at Pearl Harbour did they save the day for Western Civilisation and democracy.
During the ensuing decades after WWll, the US again played in the background whilst the current war germinated, backing various peace negotiations in the Middle East from afar as the Islamic nations invaded the West by stealth, covertly harnessing their scapegoat, the Jew. As the impact of each atrocity on his person or state faded with time, they pushed the boundaries in their quest to exploit him, from hijacking his airline, to killing his sportsmen and successively waging war on his reborn nation-state, culminating in the current use of the worst of all WMDs, the human bomb, a weapon based in the controlled poverty of their people, infiltrating the Jew’s suburbs and murdering his family.
However, the problem posed for the current imperialists is that this perpetual scapegoat is no longer an orphan, a nation without a state. He has a guardian in his rekindled home, a spoke in the wheel that has forced a review of the new imperialist strategy to ensure the success of its goal, a world dominated by Islam. This is borne out of the present tolerance of adverse sentiments against the Jew’s aspirations, his home and his leader allowing my Canadian acquaintance and her kin a certain smugness based in their certainty that it is simply the Jew’s yearning for and hanging on to his state (Zionism) that is the problem and not the Jew himself.
The current imperialists have a two-pronged strategy:
- Slow infiltration into the West as is evidenced by the increasing Muslim communities throughout Europe and the Americas, with Mosques in which Imams preach world dominance and hatred, springing up at breakneck speed in contrast to the steady decline in formal Christianity. In this they have been almost completely successful in achieving a high degree of conversion to Islam with terrorist cells firmly established throughout the West and other democratic aligned nations. After ignoring the fate of the Jew for so long the West is only now beginning to realise that they have become by default almost impotent to stop such events as the Madrid rail and London underground bombings.
- Steady sustenance of the scapegoat by direct onslaught on the Jew utilising terrorism – first by contained attacks on his person, followed by more intense attacks on his state. Having failed to eradicate the Infidel Jew or destroy the Jewish state, the last four to five years has seen a consolidation of the scapegoat in a continued drive to win support for this second prong of the strategy from the very West that has been infiltrated.
These imperialists understand well the weakness of Western democracy. They have engaged a modern technological PR machine to resurrect Nazi methodology by camouflaging their aspirations under the guise that the Jew is controller of all things, turning the spotlight back onto him as power-hungry villain. Thus world economic and political domination is put forward as the imperialist aspiration of the Jew who has infiltrated the highest levels of Western Governments and occupied Palestinian land as a first step in that direction.
In a modern world of political correctness and patronisation, these Islamic leaders are confident that they can utilise the “liberal intelligentsia” of the West to sway public opinion by drawing an analogy between the Jew and the Nazi regime that attempted to eradicate him.
What better weapon than to create in the Jew an icon of his own tormentor, the flag of Israel with the swastika emblazoned at its centre? Quite the image to win over those in the West who never really liked “those people” in their midst, now comfortable with the new nomenclature of anti-Zionism or anti-Israel that replaces the old but very same anti-Semitism! Now however, there is an added dimension to this PR machine.
A strategy has been set into motion to split the Judeo-Christian ethic, a methodology of divide and rule, to slip subliminally into the consciousness of the West just as has the notion of the ancient religion of Islam and centuries old Palestinian history with its foundation in the Holy Land preceding that of the Israelites; of Abraham being their forefather long before Mohammed lived to create his religion; of Jerusalem (the city of David) as their Holy City even though Mohammed had never been there; of the word “occupation” with its multifarious interpretations; of an acceptable world empathy for those WMDs, the human bombs wrought out of “poverty, desperation and lack of hope”. Now we have the Jew planning not only to eradicate the Muslim from his midst, but also the Christian.
Having retained the support of Western Arabists and gained that of the Western “liberal intelligentsia”, all that remains is to convince them that the Jew not only wants to eliminate the Muslims from their midst, but the Christians as well. Listen carefully at the new vernacular that has entered the spin that rolls off the tongue of Michael Tarazi, the PLO legal advisor, an American who claims Christian Palestinian heritage, when he tells those whose ear he has engaged that like the Muslims, the Christians too are a target of the “Jew Nazi regime” that “occupies Palestine”.
And all this time these very same liberal ideologues ignore the suicidal murder and child abuse practiced by the Muslims in their schools and homes alike, training their children and next generation to hate and kill the Jew as the pig, dressing them in military garb with detonators strapped to their bodies to blow themselves up as martyrs, encouraging them to throw grenades at the Jew under the heavy silence of the UN, its Middle East proxy UNRWA, Amnesty International, ICRC and Save the Children, encouraging the production of the next generation army to continue their fight in this world war against democracy and freedom.
Having failed to obliterate the Jew, they have hijacked him in his entirety, beginning with his religion, his planes and now his history and his suffering, with the aim of eradicating his nation-state, the ultimate prize being the world domination they erroneously attribute to the Jew.
Western society has once again become impotent to envisage that following the successful harnessing of his support against the Jew, comes the onslaught on his own person, his land and his people. Churchill was elected at the eleventh hour and the US arrived in the nick of time to save themselves from Nazi domination regardless of the atrocities perpetrated on the Jew.
Today both Britain and the USA have realised that they have to act in Afghanistan and the Middle Eastern countries of Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Syria if they are to make any inroads into stemming what they are convinced is the cause and effect of global terror. What they do not overtly acknowledge is the greater picture of Islamic imperialist totalitarian aspirations, founded in the very religion that preaches the demise of the infidel, Christian, Jew and Atheist alike, in its drive to create the international caliphate it craves.
This is not about the merits of the survival of Israel within secure borders, living side by side in peace with her neighbours, but one of intrinsic importance to the very survival of the West as the free democratic civilisation we all aspire to maintain.
As a by-product, it is hoped that finally the West will rid itself of the Jew as scapegoat and embrace him as an equal partner in the survival of the Judeo- Christian ethic which is the embodiment Western Civilization.
