It’s like Max Von Sydow said to his lover in Woody Allen’s Hannah and Her Sisters, “You missed a very dull TV show on Auschwitz. More gruesome film clips, and more puzzled intellectuals declaring their mystification over the systematic murder of millions. The reason they can never answer the question ‘How could it possibly happen?’ is that it’s the wrong question. Given what people are, the question is ‘Why doesn’t it happen more often?'”
Anti-Jewish attacks are spiking to record levels across the U.S., Europe and the world (spurred largely by Islamic Jew-hatred). A “moderate” Muslim country, Algeria, has its army marching in drill chanting: “turn your guns towards the Jews in order to kill them, slaughter them and skin them.” A Muslim cleric said from the pulpit: “My brother in the West Bank: Stab!…Oh men of the West Bank, next time, attack in a group of three, four, or five. Attack them in groups. Cut them into body parts.” Another brandished an explosives belt during his sermon and screamed: “Oh people of the West Bank, kill them!” Amidst all this and more, this is how Jewish day schools are preparing Jewish youth for what’s coming: by devoting whole classes to attacking me.
How fearful leftists are of the truths I tell — they are willing to go to any length to make sure that people don’t hear what I am saying and agree with me. But this time it backfired. I just received this email from a college student who attended a Jewish high school:
I am an 19-year-old college student. I just wanted to express my support and let you know that a few years ago my high school, Solomon Schechter Westchester, invited a speaker from Truah specifically to bash you for 45 straight minutes. Jill Jacobs said you were a bigoted racist who gives Jews a bad name. My classmates, upon seeing your bus signs and being told they were directed at Islam as a whole, not only Jihadists, said they were embarrassed to be a part of your religion.
I tried to walk out but was not allowed. I also had no idea who you were, and upon further research that night, I realized that I agreed with most of what you preached. I saw that you were far from anti-Muslim, only looking to stop the radicalization that the left is too afraid to recognize. I asked the administration if I could invite you in to speak, and they said no on the grounds that you preach “hate speech” and that the school doesn’t tolerate that. That was the day I decided to graduate and never return to that cesspool of liberal indoctrination ever again.
Anyway, in light of Hillary’s recent comments on Trump I wanted to email you to express my deep concern regarding the direction in which this country is moving.
Hillary said: “He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
The obvious problem with her statement is the lie she told in the beginning. It’s ironic how the left preaches that Islam is the “religion of peace,” yet Hillary also insists that they can be so easily converted to terrorists by a simple video (sounds familiar).
Yet that is not the part that worries me. She lies all the time.
I have seen you say it for the past two years, but only now did I really start to believe that there are powerful people in this country who are dangerously close to implementing Sharia. It states: “It is a criminal offense in Islam to speak ill of the faith, its Prophet Muhammad, and its holy Scriptures (Qur’an and Hadith).” Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this exactly what Hillary is trying to implement? She indicts Trump for speaking ill of Islam and essentially blames him for the expansion of ISIS.
Am I missing something, or are we not allowed to insult Islam in this country anymore? Not only is she naive enough to assert that Trump’s comments are expanding ISIS, but in a way, she is blaming him and every other American who speaks out against the “religion of peace” for instigating this hatred. Instead of addressing the problems with radical Islam, she actually has the nerve to blame Americans practicing their right to free speech for the rise in terror. As if WE need to stop insulting Islam or THEY will commit acts of terror. As if WE should avoid addressing the problems in modern-day Islam because it might upset them, and god forbid we do that.
I supported your cartoon contest. Not because of any personal feelings towards Muhammad (although I do believe he is far from the “perfect man”), but because we need to stop pandering to Jihadists who want to intimidate us into silence. It is our right to make fun of him, just like everyone makes fun of Jesus, just like everyone makes fun of Jews. And it is not only un-American to try and silence those who do, subsequently blaming them for Jihadist terror, it is borderline compliance with Sharia.
Trump has never spoken ill of Muslims in general, much like yourself, only the radical ones. Yet the left, who is so keen on not lumping groups of people together (i.e blacks, Mexicans, etc.), essentially lumps all Muslims in with the Jihadists when they accuse you and Mr. Trump of being bigots and islamophobic. I want you to know that I and many others know the truth: that you are neither bigoted nor racist, that you have dedicated your life’s work to stop Jihad and keep Americans safe. There are many of us, as you can see, who recognize your message and agree with your sentiments.
I’m sure you know all of this already, but I just wanted to reach out as a supporter to let you know that I recognize the threat of Islamic terror and I support your work in bringing light to the serious threat we face.
Instead of deconstructing and exposing the lie behind the marketing of the “Palestinian” myth, Jewish educators and lay leaders have aimed their poisonous barbs toward the proud Jews who are fighting for our people. Think about it. This is a pattern, like the Jewish charities who invited Nazi officers to their event dinners — before they were deported and gassed. These Jewish educators are promoting this century’s annihilationists before they, too, get their heads lopped off. The sanction of the victim. It’s what John Galt meant when he said, “Then I saw what was wrong with the world, I saw what destroyed men and nations, and where the battle for life had to be fought. I saw that the enemy was an inverted morality—and that my sanction was its only power. I saw that evil was impotent—that evil was the irrational, the blind, the anti-real—and that the only weapon of its triumph was the willingness of the good to serve it. Just as the parasites around me were proclaiming their helpless dependence on my mind.”
Jewish day schools should be preparing children for what’s coming. They should be arming them with knowledge. They should be informing them about Islamic Jew-hatred — the jet-fuel of the holy war against the Jews.
Instead, they take aim against those who trying to defend them from what’s coming.
