Israel, the West, and Islam

Israel, Islam, and the West - Spiritual vs Physical Threats

Once piece of news: Obama says something about the 67 borders, and everyone freaks out as if something new just happened. Why is everyone freaking out? Why is this a surprise?

We’re not surprised. We’re afraid.

We’re starting to feel the isolation and the Zionist dream of the world’s support for Israel is fading. But a new dream is taking form. It’s the Jewish dream.

After seeing the Nir Barkat interview with Neil Cavuto, I became a little depressed. How is Israel going to get herself to recognize her Jewish identity, that she’s here for a purpose, and that purpose is not to be just another transplanted Western country? That her purpose is in fact to lead the West as its founder and inspiration?

How can the Jewish People stand up and lead the world if they continually feel that they need the world’s political support to survive?

What we have here is a mentality known as Dor HaMidbar, or in English, slave mentality. We believe we are the slaves of the West. The Arabs we don’t really care about because we are not trying to emulate them. But the West we feel we are helpless without. We are imprisoned with living day to day trying to convince the West that we are just like them, and it works less and less every day. And it’s starting to scare us. And our leaders don’t know what to do. And they yell at one another in the Knesset blaming each other for losing the world’s support.

The Jewish people have generally always had two enemies. Those that are a real threat to our spirit, and those who are a threat to our bodies. The Persians, for example, were a threat to our spirit. We tried to assimilate, and then a threat to our bodies materialized in Haman, and we got our act together with the Jewish leadership of Mordecai and Esther and we were saved. People like the Philistines, on the other hand, were only threats to our bodies. They were never more than pests. It’s the same with the Philistines of today, the Palestinians. They are no spiritual threat. We don’t identify with them, we don’t want to be like them, we don’t like their society and we have nothing in common with them. They just kill us every so often and drive us up the wall.

Egypt, on the other hand, was a threat to both body and spirit. They were killing our babies just as the Palestinians do, but when we were in Egypt, the Rabbis say we were on the “49th level of impurity”. I don’t know exactly what that means, but it’s something like we were very hopeless, disconnected, disparaged, and we couldn’t even pray anymore. We were spiritually in danger, just as we are now, just as we see no spiritual way out of this mess, no way that we’ll all suddenly understand what we’re doing here.

Right now our enemies are clearly lined up. We have the Muslim world, which is no spiritual threat at all, but they sure do threaten our bodies. Then there is the Western world, which doesn’t want to actively kill us, nor do they directly threaten the Jewish people. But the West is the real spiritual threat to the Jews, not the Muslims.

This is not the West’s fault. They’re not trying to be enemies. But they are a spiritual threat because we think we’re supposed to be them. We are enslaved to them. We feel we need them. When we lose their support we become scared. The Muslim World smells the fear and they pounce.

So how is our spiritual enslavement to the West going to end? The answer can’t be God’s abandonment. He tried that in the Holocaust and it just backfired. We won’t listen. It won’t be effective. It will have to be just how we got out of Egypt. By God’s hand alone. God struck our spiritual threat, the Egyptians, until they let us go. When we got out, we wanted to go back because we couldn’t see life without them. That’s how it will be this time.

Our spiritual threat, the West, will lose its power. When it does, we will want to go back to them. We will moan about how life was so much better when America was in charge of the world. But we’ll be alone in the desert with God guiding the way.

At some point we’ll hit a body of water and get totally stuck. Then someone will jump in. Then the sea will split.

We’ll get out of it when we are totally cornered, with the Muslim world coming at us at full speed, while the Western World is too busy restructuring itself to turn our way.

As a nation, we are in spiritual trouble, but we are not short of many amazing individuals who are ready to jump into the sea before it splits. When there is literally nowhere to go and no one to save us, we’ll figure out why we’re here and what we have to do.

On that day no one will give a crap about what Obama says about anything at all.


The Western Financial System will Collapse in September as Palestine is Declared – How to Prepare

This is what we'll see in September on Wall Street.

In this post I make certain specific predictions that I do think will come true, but if they don’t, keep in mind that I am not a prophet. I’m just a guy trying to be intellectually honest with how I see things. Yes, I could be wrong, but hear me out.

If you’ve been following the blog so far, you get the pattern. I take one piece of news and interpret it through a Nationalist Jewish faith-based lens. Today was such a flurry of activity that I can’t possibly analyze it all, but we’ll take one story and I’ll build a prediction around it.

I caught this in Ma’ariv, which is the newspaper I prefer to read since they pubish Moshe Feiglin and I figure they deserve my traffic at least. That and I like their layout. And most of all they’re in deep debt and are about to go bankrupt along with the rest of the Israeli media, so I give them a pity read.

Here’s a link to the story in Hebrew for those who want to read it. The basic gist of it is that the Likud playmakers got together and told Netanyahu to annex Judea and Samaria if the Arabs next door declare a State.

I’m in favor of this not for tactical reasons. Tactically it will fail because no one on the globe would recognize such an annexation, as they don’t even recognize the annexation of the Golan or of Jerusalem. So it won’t accomplish the goal of taking back the momentum in the international arena. The only thing that would do that is speaking in the name of God to the world from the Temple Mount and broadcasting a massive Jewish prayer rally on the Mount live, telling the rest of the West that their founders, the Jews, are back and ready to take the lead. But that won’t happen yet.

The importance of this story is rather the flickering flame it represents, the whisperings of Jewishness that are left in the nation devoid of true Jewish leadership. The voices are there, and while powerless, we should draw strength from them and know that all they need is the right leader to give them power.

What I heard today on the radio, 95.5, Reshet Bet, live broadcast from the Knesset of Netanyahu’s speech and opposition leader Livni’s “rebuttal,” made me laugh and cry simultaneously. We have a clueless leader who has no idea what is about to happen, repeating the same exact nonsense about “true peace,” with a “partner” that everyone’s been talking about since 1991. Rebutted by a clueless opposition leader that represents absolutely nothing different whatsoever, complaining about how Netanyahu has no vision when she doesn’t either. We’re like a bunch of blinded Samsons armed with a huge army feeling around for the pillars of the building. We just need a Philistinian to show us the way.

Livni quoted Herzl about Zionism, who said that Zionism needs the support of the world to succeed. Blind Livni was yelling at blind Netanyahu that he’s losing the support of the world and Zionism is dying. She’s right. It’s dying and it’s gonna go out with a blaze in September to be replaced by something more in tune with reality: A Zionism that doesn’t need “the world,” but rather needs God. We tend to call this Judaism.

Anyway, back in the Knesset full of blind Samsons, both sides were arguing about how to win the world back, because we need the world, because we have to survive as a people. A people of what? Panderers to the world whining about our need to survive? Nowhere in that literally Godforsaken Knesset did anyone mention a word about God. Only how much we need the world. God’s people yelling at each other about how we’re going to win the world back on our side and survive, while the world looks at us and laughs.

I always say that we will not win the world over until we lead them. Right now we’re leading them whether we want to or not. They are paying attention to everything we do because we lead them. And right now we’re leading them, unbeknownst to them, to oblivion, because the West is about to commit a crime no one in the history of the world has ever committed.

The West is about to forcibly give God’s land to someone other than the Jewish people. Something tells me He (The Big He) won’t stand for it, since He promised us that no nation would ever have a political foothold in Israel except for us, ever, and so it has been throughout history since Moses left us and Joshua conquered this place. That’s not about to change any time soon. Just an educated guess from a man who really believes in the God of the Bible.

As we all know, the Palestinians are going to declare a “State” through the UN in 4 months. Call me gutsy, but this, as far as I can tell, banking on the fact that God doesn’t break his promises to the Jewish People ever, is what is going to happen immediately following:

A few days after the UN vote and declaration, the Western financial system will suddenly collapse. First the EU, triggered by Greece, Spain, Ireland, and Portugal, all falling, dragging the rest of Europe with them. The next few days will see the rest of the West refusing to buy up American debt because they have no money, and the bond markets will collapse.

The New York Stock exchange will be in complete disarray, the United States government will have to default, and the DJIA will go down to about 5,000 in a matter of a few weeks.

While all this is happening, the Arabs will be crowding Israel’s border as we thrash around, alone, the Western World suddenly not giving a tweet about what’s going on in Israel because they’re busy catching falling traders from the roofs of buildings on Wall Street.

Some may see this as a “dark” prediction. But what it really is, is the beginning of a new world. A better one I believe.

So we’ll have to figure out what to do over here while the Old World leaves us and the new one takes form, with us as the only surviving “Western” country on the planet with any money whatsoever. We have 4 months to prepare. I’ll start by buying inverse financial ETF’s and put my money where my mouth is.
