Sharia Ruled Neighborhood Coming Soon to a Town Near You!!!

     Born and raised in Paris France, I had grown accustomed to experiencing a certain envy for American gadgets, music records, jeans and other icons from the USA that us Europeans would always have to wait for and pay a premium for. In the 21st century, distances, delays and prices have been reduced to such a point that we can now say that we live in a global marketplace. Nobody seems to be ahead of anybody anymore except maybe in one area where they actually shouldn't be.
     What I mean is that there is one change in Europe that we in America have not experienced yet. There is one area where Europe is ahead, way ahead of us, and that is the "Sharianization" of cities across the country.
     We, in America, know (that is for those who really bother to ask) that Radical Islam is slowly fighting a "silent jihad", infiltrating all levels of government, educational system and corporate world. But outside of a large concentration of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, the push for Sharia Law in America hasn't been received very well, and we have organizations like Act4America or activists/authors like Pamela Geller, Melanie Phillips, Robert Spencer or Mark Steyn among others to thank for that. The fight is real but it is not too late for the battle to be won on American soil.
     On the other hand, Europe is now on the fast track to becoming Eurabia, a term coined by activist/author Bat Ye'or in the mid 70s and popularized in 2005 in her book Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis. "The silent Jihad" and stealth muslim demographics have slowly taken over as we are starting to see in Europe. The growth ha sbeen constant and exponential for the last fifty years
    This has been a growing concern of mine and now, as I start to see the "injection"of sharia virus strain in the European blood line, I wonder not what can be done to stop it but simply how fast will the virus spread.
     A Muslim group in Denmark known as "Call to Islam" is pushing to establish "Sharia Law Zones" in parts of Copenhagen and then other Danish cities. Sharia Police would make sure that anybody doing anything contrary to the teaching of Islam would be punished. But they are not alone, this is not an isolated case but more an emulation of many other countries of Europe.
     Similar situations where Sharia is established in neighborhoods, including in some cases Islamic tribunals set up for family affairs such as marriage, divorce, child custody or inheritance, exist in countries like England, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain to name just a few.
    In fear of an social explosion due to the lack of muslim integration in French society, France has just finished publishing a 2,200 page report documenting the imminent danger titled "Suburbs of the Republic"
    Muslims come and establish families in countries that are not their land of origin, they do not integrate, they organize under Islamic law and one thin slice at a time through the unnoticeable "Salami Effect", western civilization is being reduced to near oblivion or worse: to the state of "Dhimmitude" (a state of "protection" for "dhimmis" or non-muslim /infidels under Islamic rule).
     This is all happening in Europe under the very eyes of those who care to look and of on the watch of many native European leaders. Many of them feel helpless and maybe they are indeed!
     The cancer of radical Islam and the establishment of the Caliphate under worldwide sharia law is not just a bad dream that will go away in the morning. It is very real and it is making some giant, irreversible steps in Europe towards a Sharia controlled continent. It must be fought in the name of truth and freedom for all. If not abroad, then at home in America.
     When I say that we need to fight for freedom and truth, I realize that real freedom and saving truth can only be found in the person of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus) who by his sacrificial death and resurrection offered the whole world reconciliation to God.
     I found Him 28 years ago and made him Lord of my life. All people, including Muslims need to come to Him because He is the only way.
     Islam: Lie and kill infidels! (Surah 3:28, 16:106) (answering Islam)
     Christianity: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you! (Matthew 5:44)
     I ask you, which one is the true "religion of Peace"?

     Don't fall asleep America or soon you will be awakened each morning at 5 A.M by the call to prayer coming from a minaret near you!

Occupy Wall Street and Vilify Israel!

 The bank-controlling "Greedy Jew" syndrome is not new. Slogans such as "Zionists control Wall St", "Hitler's Bankers Wall St." or "Humanity versus the Rothschilds" heard and/or read at the  Occupy Wall Street gathering and other "Occupy 'Your Home Town'" around the nation are nothing but a repackaging of an old anti-Semitic libel.

     As a matter of fact, it is one of the oldest libel against my people that goes back to the Middle Ages. Around the time of the First Crusade of 1096.  One of the results of the Crusades was that many new routes became open to the Orient and money was quickly becoming the primary commodity for trading. 
     Money lending was forbidden by the Church, and Christians were allowed to borrow money ONLY from Jewish people, who in turn would collect the money back with interest (one of the few ways for Jewish people to make a living back then). The Kings of Europe started taxing the Jewish moneylenders on their profit. Taxes kept increasing, so the Jewish moneylenders had no choice but to increase their interest rates to continue to simply make a living. The process went on for a while and gave birth to the myth of the “greedy Jew”, a myth picked up in Shakespeare’s Shylock character and that is obviously still going strong in the 21st century. So much so that today it is not uncommon to hear people with no anti-Semitic inclination say: "he Jewed me down!" referring to a transaction where bargaining took place in an effort to reduce cost.

     People for the most part have been desensitized, as the myth of the "money loving Jew" continues to infiltrate all segments of the population with its pernicious and libelous message.

     Now we witness its resurfacing at the various Occupy Wall Street (OWS) demonstrations and very little is being said, maybe because very few are even noticing the wrong of it. As a result, people are currently arguing and trying to decide if the OWS gatherings are of anti-Semitic nature.

     One fact is that OWS is not really a structured movement or protest with a well defined leadership. Based on principles that are reminiscent of the Anarchist movement, it is a protest of the people against corporate greed and injustice within our society. In a nutshell , it appears to be a protest of the 99% (referring to the abused and under-payed population) against the 1% (referring to corporate billionaires). I am sure that there is some validity in the cause behind the OWS protest, but the fact that it doesn't benefit from any sort of leadership, makes it a magnet for weirdos, fringe people and conspiracy theorists. In their midst will undoubtedly be some anti-Semites who, pulling from their extensive panoply of lies will jump on the occasion to vilify the "Zionist Bankers.”

     So is it fair to say that Occupy Wall Street is anti-Semitic? I think not!

     This being said, if OWS is not infected by the virus of anti-Semitism, it most certainly shows symptoms of it. If it is not specifically driven by anti-Semitism, it still is attracting anti-Semites into its ranks. And, as the global economy continues to weaken, a culprit must be designated.

     Since OWS is mostly made of disgruntled liberal leftists who already have a very warped view of Israel and the Jewish people, the most natural thing for them to do would be to put the blame on the scapegoats of humanity. They are trying to do just that, and who fits the bill better than the “greedy Jew”?

    While  I applaud the Los Angeles Unified School District for firing Patricia McAllister after she said: "the Zionist Jews who are running these big banks and our federal reserve -- which is not run by the federal government -- they need to be run out of this country", I continue to worry about my people, mainly because much of what is being stated against Israel and the Jewish people is increasingly reminiscent of pre-WWII nazi Germany anti-Jewish propaganda. Back then we didn't have a country to go back to. Today, Israel is the safest place for our people and maybe we need to start taking the handwriting on the wall more seriously!

     At the very least, true Bible believing Christians must make their voices heard in support of Israel and the Jewish people (Genesis 12:3) as well as let my people know what it means to be a follower of Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth (Isaiah 52:13-53:12, John 1:12)

     A witness who does nothing becomes a by-stander and the by-standers simply facilitate the work of the perpetrators.

Gilad Shalit's Release: A Blessing and a Curse!

File:Gilad Shalit portrait.jpg
     In our world punctuated by death, wars, famines and a global economic crisis, good news is a rare breath of fresh air that we seldom get to enjoy. Then, just a few days ago, the news came from the Middle East that Israeli 25 years old IDF soldier Gilad Shalit was about to be released from his Hamas captors, and THAT, is good news!
    Gilad Shalit was captured by Hamas on June 25, 2006 and held hostage ever since in an undisclosed location somewhere in Gaza. For over five years, during which he became an international figure, Shalit has been secretly kept away from any and all government delegations  and human rights agencies. Countless organizations, countries and people have been in favor of his release...to no avail!
     Because of the nature of his abduction and Hamas' lack of willingness for any dialogue, his capture is now commonly and rightfully so, referred to as a "kidnapping", one that goes against the Geneva Convention. 
     For the last five years, much prayer has gone in favor of Shalit's release. It appears that on October 11, 2011, an agreement was reached between the Israeli government of Benyamin Netanyahu and Hamas. The agreement regarding the release of Shalit within days includes the release of 1,027 Palestinians in return.
     The negotiations will take place in three phases. Firstly, in the middle of next week Shalit will be moved to Egypt and then to Israel while the first 450 prisoners will simultaneously be realesed from Israeli prisons. Secondly, After Shalit is released to the Red Cross, 27 female prisoners will be added to the 450 previously released. Finally, in another two months, another 550 prisoners will be released for a grand total of 1,027.
     There you have it, the sanctity of human life versus the idolatry of death!
     I understand how important the choice of the 1,027 is, in regards to the degree of danger posed by the release of some key terorrists, and I agree with Israel for not releasing senior Palestinian prisoners like Marwan Barghouti or Ahmed Saadat. I also understand, and frankly, I admire the commitment of the Israeli government to secure the release of Gilad Shalit. YES, ONE LIFE IS THAT IMPORTANT!!!
     How ironic that Israel, so often painted as the "New Nazis of the Middle-East" or "Occupiers of Palestine" would see fit to exchange 1 life for 1,027 lives! But you see, Israel really is the only democracy of the Middle East and the only country to respect human life in that volatile region of the world. While numerous Islamists stand in line to blow themselves up in the name of Allah, Netanyahu's cabinet stays up all night to figure out a way to negotiate for the life of ONE.
     There are three guarantees from Gilad Shalit's imminent release:
     1.     A number of the released prisoners will soon be back on the street posing a real danger to Israeli soldiers AND citizens, again!
     2.     Kidnapping will most certainly be added to the list of successful methods that terrorist organization like Hamas and Al-Qaeda will use to fulfill their destructive agenda.
     3.     Israel's desire for justice and human rights will soon be forgotten in light of all the other lies propagated against her by the media, the liberals and Islamists.
     Yet, in spite of all this, I rejoice with Gilad's parents, Noam and Aviva Shalit as well as the myriad of supporters and friends around the globe. 
     I am reminded of this passage of the Bible in Isaiah 63:7-9:
         I shall make mention of the  lovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, According to all that the LORD has granted us, And the great goodness toward the house of Israel, Which He has granted them according to His  compassion, And according to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses. 
For He said, “Surely, they are  My people, Sons who will not deal falsely.”So He became their Savior.
In all their affliction He was afflicted, And the  angel of His presence saved them; In His love and in 
His mercy He redeemed them; And He lifted them and carried them all the days of old. 

        May Gilad Shalit find his Messiah soon for a real release from bondage and for the real Shalom from God!

        Long live Israel and long live Gilad Shalit!
