Cedars-Sinai’s Yom Ha’Shoah Holocaust Remembrance Day Program – 4/11/2018


Yesterday at 10:00 AM Israel-time entire Jewish communities stopped what they were doing no matter where or what they were doing to remember that Hitler’s Nazi regime murdered about 6,000,000 MILLION Jews for no other reason than Aryan supremacist beliefs that Germans are a superior race and Jews are among the most evil sub-species of humans on earth. THE BELIEF IS JEW-HATRED POPPYCOCK!

 

Here is an excerpt from the Times of Israel including a two-minute video of the occasion:

 

Israel came to a standstill at 10 a.m. Thursday as sirens wailed throughout the country in memory of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis during World War II.

 

Buses and cars halted on streets and highways as Israelis stepped out of their vehicles and stood with heads bowed.

 

The sirens were followed by ceremonies marking Holocaust Remembrance Day in schools, public institutions and army bases. …

In the wee hours of yesterday morning, Ari Bussel shared an email of his remembrance of the Holocaust.

Cedars-Sinai’s Yom Ha’Shoah Holocaust Remembrance Day Program – 4/11/2018

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent 4/12/2018 1:00 AM

 

I am the son of Holocaust Survivors, but this story is not about my parents, rather about their generation, about those who survived the Holocaust.

 

My father’s mother left one day, and did not come back.  One of the Polish neighbors informed the authorities.  The Poles did not only “follow orders;” the atrocities were not perpetrated only by the Nazis and at their direction.  The Poles were willing and often eager participants.  If I were in Poland today, such pronouncements would be punishable by law, for according to the new law, the Poles were themselves just innocent victims of the Nazis, nothing more.

On this Remembrance Day to the Holocaust and the Bravery (as it is called in Israel), we remember my grandmother on my father’s side (both seen in the picture above), my grandfather on my mother’s side and the entire extended family who perished during the Holocaust.

 

Yesterday you received from me a reminder of Cedars-Sinai’s Yom Ha’Shoah Holocaust Remembrance Day Program that took place today, April 11th, 2018.

 

I wrote that to me, Dr. Joel Geiderman’s 34th annual program is likely the most significant of all.  Doctors (MDs), nurses, staff, the general public and Holocaust Survivors gather year after year, for three and a half decades, to hear a lecture, have a box lunch, witness Survivors lighting six candles commemorating the Six Million Jews who perished during the Holocaust in WWII (1939-1945) – among which were more than one million children – and hear the recitation of Kadish [aka Kaddish] and El Maleh Rachamim (“God Full of Mercy”) prayers.

 

Dr. Geiderman graciously gives credit to others, but it is his program, and the generosity of an enduring gift by the Feintech family that enables this program.  Will it survive after Dr. Geiderman?  What will happen when there will be no more Survivors still living among us?

 

Today, Dr. Guiderman asked the children of Holocaust Survivors to stand up.  We stood and looked around – there were many of us; as many as the number of Survivors when I started attending this program so many years ago.

 

We gathered to bear witness, promising “Never Forger; Never Again.”

Beverly Hills, Jerusalem of Gold and Holocaust Survivor Max Webb

 

Prior to the start of the program, members of the Jerusalem of Gold Committee (the official celebration in 2017 of “The City of Angels Saluting the City of God” marking 50 years of the Reunification of Jerusalem, Israel’s capital) presented a proclamation issued by the City of Beverly Hills to Max Webb, a Holocaust Survivor.

 

The City Council headed by (then Mayor) Lili Bosse issued 100 individual proclamations to 100 Holocaust Survivors who were still alive at that time, vowing and promising “We Will Never Forget You!

 

Max Webb, who was unable to attend at that time, received his Proclamation today.

Members of the Jerusalem of Gold Committee:

 

(Standing) Dr. Pablo Nankin, Susanne Reyto, Marina Waks, Zohreh Mizrahi (Seated) Ari Bussel, Max Webb, Shahla Javdan

 

Max Webb is either the last or one of only two or three surviving members of the 1939 Club.  Years ago, when Pastor John Hagee (the most famous Evangelical Christian supporter of Israel and the Jewish people, founder of CUFI) was still not known, the Israel Christian Nexus hosted his visit to Los Angeles.  We had three events scheduled in his honor.  A morning event, followed by a meeting with the Board of Rabbis at the Jewish Federation of Greater LA (where Rabbi Kravitz, the father, of Jews for Judaism, asked Pastor Hagee about proselytization attempts; Pastor Hagee did not blink as he replied:  “Teach your young ones; and then nothing will succeed to sway them from their beliefs” and added unequivocally “we support you, no strings attached; we do not want to proselytize your children”).  From there we continued to the Hillcrest Club, where the 1939 Club hosted a reception for Mrs. and Pastor Hagee.

 

I remember as we arrived with the guests and entered the hall where the reception took place, the members of the 1939 Club were already waiting for us.  The picture in my mind is of “small” and frail people, who were already “old” at that time, very old.  Alas, memories of a young man.

 

Max Webb, as you can see from the pictures, looks fantastic, although he has passed the 100 year mark either a year or two years ago!

 

In Israel, in each university, there is at least one building with his and his wife’s name on it.  He has always given most generously.  As he told Shlomo z”l and Frida Rosenblatt long ago:  “I have, so I am giving.”

 

This spirit of given has not diminished.  Its meaning is magnified when one learns (as I did from Mrs. Rosenblatt, herself and her late husband both Holocaust Survivors) that at home, before WWII, Max Webb’s family was extremely poor.  When he was walking to the Cheder (place of learning, the equivalent of elementary school), as he was lifting one foot after another, the water was pouring out from the bottom of the shoes (I am not sure if they even had soles).

 

Nate Shapell z”l

 

As a kid, I knew of Nate (Nathan) Shapell, for he used to underwrite the State of Israel Independence Day official Consulate reception in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

 

He and brother David (also deceased) have supported Israel in numerous ways.  The Beverly Hills annual extravagance was not even the cherry at the top; it was simply something they most generously did.

 

For members of the Israeli community, it was the most coveted invitation at that time, likely similar to receiving an invitation to the Oscars today.  I was fortunate to accompany my father year after year (as my mother shies away from such events).

 

Shapell continued to underwrite the reception until Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a world-wide directive to all its diplomatic missions prohibiting individual sponsorships of official events.

 

Several years ago, one of the leaders of the local Israeli community passed away.  General Shimon Erem founded and headed to his last day the Israel Christian Nexus, on whose founding board I had the privilege of serving (until Gen. Erem’s death).

 

Shimon’s wife Danielle, who will be 98 on September 22, 2018, has given me much of Shimon’s very extensive library, which we distributed among Jewish and Christian community- and religious leaders.

 

Among the books were two copies (second printing, 1974) of “Witness to the Truth” by Nate Shapell.

 

1974 2nd Printing Witness to the Truth by Nate Shapell

 

Here is an excerpt from the jacket to the book:

 

Nathan Shapell was 17yo when he Germans occupied his hometown in Poland.  Ordinary life vanished from the face of Europe; there was only survival and horror or death to choose between.  Shapell fought with every weapon at his command – his ingenuity, his resourcefulness, and his incredible courage – not for himself but for the lives of his family and friends.

 

After managing to outwit the Nazis hour by hour with his fellow Jews in the ghettoes, he was taken at last to Auschwitz, and from the summer of 1943 on, he endured was two few lived to tell.  He survived Auschwitz, death marches, and two more concentration camps.  Then his story, and Witness to the Truth, begins.

 

The book tells that story, and it also conveys a vote of thanks to those ordinary American soldiers and officers who found themselves in an unexpected role.  He bears witness to their humanity and decency; he also bears witness to eh survivors and to the silent dead.  Finally, he reaches out to all people, especially young Americans, to show them that a man can go through the worst hell imaginable, survive it, still love his fellow men, and even go on to become a part of what is now called “the establishment.”

 

Nate Shapell’s daughter, Vera Guerin, participates in the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day Program, until this year as the Chair of Cedars-Sinai board of directors.  So today I brought a copy of the book to her.  I suspected she has many copies at home, but she was grateful to have it.

 

Her aunt (Nate’s sister) was Max Webb’s wife.  Nate z”l and Max are brothers-in-law.  A small world indeed.

 

[Dr. Geiderman:  I do not have Vera’s or Max’s e-mail addresses; kindly please forward this to them.]

 

This is the story of One Proclamation, One Book and a ceremony in its 34th year, a commitment that keeps on going.  It seems that by design, they are all connected.  Likewise, in life, we – the Jewish People – are all connected; and we – the Saturday and Sunday People, Jews and Christians – are all connected.  We are one, all created in the image of our God the Almighty.

 

Always,

Dr. Shaw Promotes Valuable D.C. Counterjihad Conference


Dr. Leslie Shaw, PhD

© April 12, 2018

 

I received an unsolicited email from a Dr. Leslie Shaw, an Associate Professor teaching at the Paris campus of ESCP Europe (acronym for: École supérieure de commerce de Paris). This Is a business college located at various metropolitan cities across Europe.

 

I’m not sure how Dr. Shaw discovered me, but I’d like to believe it was one of the three blogs I post at. The nature of the email was to inform the date of a Counterjihad Conference to be held at Washington DC. The Conference stand is “to break the taboo and tackle head-on the campaign being waged by political Islam to make Western business Sharia-compliant.” The Conference is sponsored by the Forum on Islamic Radicalism and Management (FIRM).

Dr. Shaw’s email is actually a forward from him to FIRM Europe (and probably other recipients not listed) on 3/28/18. Here is the forwarded portion of the email sent to me by Dr. Shaw:

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

On Thursday 26 April 2018 Forum on Islamic Radicalism and Management is hosting a conference at the US Capitol to break the taboo and tackle head-on the campaign being waged by political Islam to make Western business Sharia-compliant.

 

In France corporates are gradually overcoming a reluctance to discuss this issue out of fear of accusations of Islamophobia but in the USA the core value of religious freedom is being used by Islamists as an instrument to stifle debate.

 

The conference will include speakers from France, the UK, Belgium, Hungary and Israel as well as from the USA.

 

Admission is free. Participants may make a donation towards the cost of organizing this event, the goals of which are to raise awareness of and explore ways to combat the encroachment of political Islam in the corporate sector.

The first conference in the U.S. on the subject of Political Islam in the Workplace will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 26, 2018  The event is co-sponsored by Forum on Islamic Radicalism and Management (FIRM), London Center for Policy Research and American Foundation for Democracy. Clarion Project spoke to event co-ordinator Dr. Leslie Shaw of FIRM:

 

Clarion: Back in 2016, CAIR described this planned conference as Islamophobic. Can you comment on that?

 

Leslie Shaw: CAIR’s opinion is driven by sectarian self-interest and promotion of a socio-political agenda.

 

Clarion: But the conference focuses only on Islamic and not other forms of radicalism.

 

Shaw: We are looking at one segment of a wide phenomenon. Other forms of radicalism exist — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, left-wing, right-wing, animal rights activists, anti-globalists, eco-warriors, neo-luddites — but Islamic radicalism poses a greater threat than all of the others put together.

 

Clarion: Why political Islam in the workplace specifically?

 

Shaw: There is a plethora of conferences on the subject of radicalism in general and Islamic radicalism in particular, but they are usually restricted to specialists in certain areas. I attended a conference in Brussels on April 22 on the challenge of jihadist radicalization in Europe. There were over 250 people there and over 20 speakers but not one person from the business world. We want to open the subject up to corporations, because they are in the front line.

 

Clarion: Can you explain how?

 

Shaw: Corporations are soft targets for terrorist attacks, but aside from the threat of violence, they are also easy prey for Islamists deploying nonviolent tactics in pursuit of their goals.

 

Islamist employees may not end up committing acts of terrorism, but their behavior is certain to generate significant workplace conflict that undermines productivity and workforce cohesion. A recent survey of over 1,000 French managers revealed that 65% had to handle faith-based problems on an occasional or regular basis, ranging from absenteeism through collective praying to refusal to work with a female colleague.

 

So, in addition, to the security dimension, it is also an issue for human resources. In France, for example, Islamic radicalism is a growing phenomenon among employees in the City of Paris, the Paris Airport Authority, the Paris Transit Authority and the public education sector. It is also a problem in private firms. The French government is currently seeking to partner with the private sector to deal with the threat.

 

You are getting the same thing in the USA with the explosion in lawsuits filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against employers. These are more often than not instigated by CAIR.

 

Clarion: Isn’t that a legitimate Civil Rights Act Title VII issue?

 

Shaw: I think the spirit of Title VII has been perverted to further a political and ideological agenda. When an employer hires a worker, he is buying that person’s time. In a manufacturing plant operating with a lean production schedule, you can’t have a worker walking off the assembly line at times determined by a third party. When you take a job, you follow the employer’s rules.

 

Clarion: But not all demands for religious accommodation are radical.

 

Shaw: Our working definition of a radical is somebody whose determination to adhere to his principles or religion causes disruption in the workplace. A vegetarian should not apply for a job in a slaughterhouse and then file a Title VII complaint because it conflicts with his moral principles. A Muslim should not take a job in a brewery if it conflicts with his religion.

 

Clarion: Aren’t you concerned that such views could be branded as Islamophobic?

 

Shaw: The purpose of the conference is to debate these issues in an open forum. Any point of view can be countered by a rebuttal.

 

Clarion: You held a similar conference in Paris in November 2017. What was the response?

 

Shaw: Extremely positive. It was attended by senior executives from flagship European and U.S. corporations as well as delegates from the gendarmerie, national Police, military, intelligence, counter-terrorism and corporate security. People appreciated the fact that we tackled the subject in a direct manner.

 

Clarion: What differences do you see in the U.S. and European approach to the problem?

 

Shaw: In Europe, corporatations are gradually overcoming a reluctance to discuss these issues out of fear of accusations of Islamophobia, but in the USA the core value of religious freedom is being used by Islamists as an instrument to stifle debate.

 

Clarion: How can people access the survey you are conducting?

 

Shaw: The survey is not accessible to the public. It’s not an opinion poll. We are sending it directly to executives in various companies and sectors. If anybody wants to complete it, they can contact us at firm.europe@gmail.com. We vet them before sending the link to make sure they are bona fide corporate officers.

 

Clarion: How does one register for the conference?

 

Shaw: People can apply to attend by clicking here (our website https://firmeurope.com) All applicants will be vetted and we will send them instructions on how to register. The list of participants will be classified.

 

Clarion: What have you discovered while organizing this conference?

 

Shaw: Apart from analysts and the security community, people are scared of Islamic radicalism.  The academic and media establishment won’t touch it because of political correctness. Corporations are seeking help to mitigate the threat but behind closed doors. They won’t come out and discuss the issues in public. It is an Orwellian fear that plays into the hands of the global Muslim Brotherhood and its satellite organizations.

 

Clarion: Are you planning more conferences?

 

Shaw: Yes. The next one is on November 15, 2018 at the National Assembly, the French parliament. The conference will be a biannual event alternating between Paris and Washington.

 

Clarion: How will corporate attendees benefit from the conference?

 

Shaw: First, they will have the reassurance that they are not alone in facing the threat. Second, the conference will demonstrate that corporations can acquire tools to assess the risks, mitigate the threat, minimize the economic costs, vet personnel and potential hires, and shield themselves from litigation.

 

The business community has a right to openly, fearlessly and objectively discuss the real challenges posed by Islamic radicalism in the workplace and share their best practices and experience in dealing with it.

 

There is a lot of hysteria surrounding the subject of Islam, on both sides. We need to cast a real eye on what is going on and take steps to ensure that our socio-economic model and values remain intact.

 

Lawmakers have a key role to play in this process so that businesses are not at the mercy of religious pressure groups eager to hijack our freedoms for their own ends.

Intro to Kutnicki Post about Muslim Brainwashing West


Intro by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

April 11, 2018

 

Adina Kutnicki is an author and a blogger. She is Jewish & Pro-Israel. Adina’s one-line description of her blog pretty much explains that which you read: “A Zionist & Conservative Blog”.

Adina Kutnicki

 

Her 4/10/18 post could be read as a Western indictment of blind Dhimmitude. Adina begins with U.S. schools actually requiring grade school students to learn Islamic doctrine in the classroom.

 

Can you imagine? Leftists and atheists have been fairly successful in eliminating Christian culture from having any influence due to some secularist SCOTUS Justices claiming a Thomas Jefferson letter to a Baptist Church insuring Church Establishment will not be used as a purpose to persecute their beliefs. The term derived from the Jefferson letter foisted as constitutional among Americans by a ridiculous interpretation of SCOTUS is “Separation of Church and State.” The SCOTUS majority opinion reinterpreted the Constitution based on the Jefferson letter EVEN THOUGH Jefferson was NOT a part of the Constitutional Convention that deliberated a penned the Constitution and Bill of Rights (1st ten Amendments) to be ratified by the Thirteen States. Jefferson was serving on diplomatic issues in France.

 

Dear God, many of the Original 13 States had Established Churches way past the ratification of the 1st Amendment, with Massachusetts being the last to disestablish in 1833.

 

Despite the majority opinion of SCOTUS Justices, the phrase can NO WHERE be found in U.S. Constitution AND that includes any Amendment to the Constitution. The merits of SCOTUS forcing the rule of law on Americans not in the Constitution is another blog post. Suffice it to say the atheist, Leftist and Muslim hypocrisy in using the unconstitutional phrase – Separation of Church and State – prevents the majority faith of Christianity appearing on the taxpayer dime; BUT NOT Islam.

Western Capitulation To Allah’s Islamic Terrorists: Bow Down – Or Else!! 

 

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

April 10, 2018

Adina Kutnicki Blog

 

THE whys and wherefores of the west’s capitulation to Allah’s Muslim Terrorists can fill book after book. Nevertheless, several factors are key and core. Resultant, in order to mitigate the fall-out and prostration, they must be understood and internalized.

 

SUFFICE to state:

 

Multiculturalism

 

 

  • In tandem, the leadership’s hatred of Judeo-Christian underpinnings bespeaks a “natural” alliance with Mohammedans, as they too abhor the west and its underlying ethos.

 

  • Atop said pyramid, western leaders (movers and shakers too) are in financial bed with Islamic regimes and their seventh-century thinking followers. In other words, greed is an overriding lure and pull.

 

ALL of which leads to capitulation, as opposed to the preservation of western culture and national security. Consequentially, it is not for nothing that the red-green alliance – totalitarians alike – agitates toward the disarming of the American people at all costs. Indeed, a disarmed populace is a submissive one.

 

American Students Indoctrinated by Islam

 

THAT being established, it is hardly a secret that America’s kiddies are being schooled to bow down to Islam. Of this there is no doubt. In fact, the following excerpts (ala Nov. 21, 2015, in concert with countless others at this site) attest to the same:

 

5 Pillars of Islam U.S. Classroom

 

In order to fully comprehend the pernicious Islamic indoctrination of America’s kiddies, some basic truths must become self-evident. Second skin……

 

Parents at a California middle school are demanding to know why a teacher had students sing an Islamic “fight song.”

 

A seventh-grade teacher at Spring View Middle School in Huntington Beach, California, deviated from the district’s official curriculum and had students sing “This Is My Fight Song.” Parent and grandparent Nichole Negron and Susan Negron told KCAL 9 Los Angeles their seventh grader was told to participate in the activity.

 

“I believe that by singing the song, the children feel comfortable that maybe Allahu is the only god and maybe that they should start following him,” Susan Negron told the network Tuesday. “I’m not OK with that.”

The women only found out about the activity by accident when Negron’s son brought a pamphlet with lyrics home. “How can we as parents combat against what we don’t know is going on?” the mother asked.

 

The two women went to the Ocean View school board on Tuesday night looking for answers. The teacher allegedly wanted students to learn about Islam through a “catchy” tune. (Begs the question, why should students be forced to learn about death cult posing as a religion in public school?)

The lyrics to “This Is My Fight Song” go as follows:

VIDEO: TV AD ENCOURAGES GERMAN WOMEN TO WEAR HIJABS [Alex Jones makes a buck – last 3 or 4 minutes is an ad]

 

Posted by The Alex Jones Channel

Country gives up on integrating Muslim migrants, chooses to submit to Islam instead.

 

SO with the above in mind, it follows that European leaders (regardless of locale), ignominiously, are succumbing and bowing down to the dictates of Islam’s barbarians!

 

“On Monday, (March 26, 2018) BILD reported on religious bullying in the schoolyard and in the classroom. Berlin mayor Michael Müller (SPD) said in the “Tagesspiegel” [another German newspaper] that it “was hopefully only an isolated case”. Unfortunately, no! (…)

 

“BILD reported to [sic] parents from all over Germany, who reported [sic] full of anger and bewilderment of their own experiences. Out of fear for their children, they did not want to be named.”

 

A parent talked about her daughter, who was bullied by Muslim girls:

 

“The reasons: She has blond hair, no headscarf, has a German-Hebrew name – and we are Christians! My daughter broke down nervously in fifth grade. She had cramps and massive fear of going to school. She was beaten and verbally attacked on the way to school. The Headmaster said only: ‘Your daughter does not have to say that she is German. Besides, you can give her a headscarf! ‘We’ve changed schools now and luckily things are going better now.”

 

A Muslim school would force girls to wear hijabs.

 

And this German-Christian headmaster — well, that’s his solution, too.

 

Bild also reports that:

 

“Schoolgirls were bullied for eating ‘impure’ Gummy Bears. The sweets contain pork gelatin.”

 

There’s more, as I’ll tell you tonight.

 

Why is any of this surprising?

 

This is the culture that has been imported to Germany, en masse. Two million Muslims brought in, with no vetting, no cultural fit.

 

Have you read the Koran? Have you read its views on infidels?

 

Do you think this sort of thing is happening here in Canada?

 

Well, we know it is, because we’ve told you about it already.

 

By the year 2023, do you doubt that there will be schools in Canada where Christian and Jewish and Hindu and Sikh girls are being bullied by Muslim girls — and even liberal Muslim girls are being bullied too — and the principal’s advice will be, well, just put on a hijab, and stop eating pork, and the bullying will stop?

 

I don’t just think it’s a possibility.

 

I think it’s a certainty…

 

NOW, isn’t it obvious why Mohammedans are so self-assured, particularly, in their ability to bow and cow non-Muslims to their dictates, and in whichever western country Islam invades? This is so, regardless of their status – be they so-called refugees, migrants, or native-born. No doubt.

VIDEO: Is Europe in Denial About the Islamist Threat?

 

Posted by Clarion Project

Published on Jan 13, 2015

 

In light of the Charlie Hebdo Massacre, we reflect on how violence and extremism has been gathering momentum in Europe throughout the years. The UK, France, Holland and many other European countries are suffering a tide of Islamic extremism unprecedented in living memory. Is Europe’s culture and way of life in danger? Will the governments wake up and act or continue to bury their heads in the sand, living in denial? Clarions Project’s film, The Third Jihad, predicted this tide of violence and extremism now gathering momentum as seen in France, the UK, Holland and across all of Europe.

 

CONCLUSIVELY, as evidenced (and excerpted) within a recent intel report, “Trends/Adaptations In Jihadi Tactics: Intel Overview“, it is more than clear that Islam is incompatible with western civilization. Full stop.

 

  • Consider: The first Surah (Chapter), Al-Fatimah, is invoked 17! times a day, and its supplication to Allah includes:“The path of those You (Allah) bestowed favors upon, not those who have incurred your wrath and those who deviated.” Now, every devoted Muslim – once they reach the age of understanding – is indoctrinated into the imperative from this repetitious Surah: Jews and Christians have angered Allah, therefore, they must be killed. Even more so, Jews are a “special” target, for Allah turned them into monkeys and pigs! This admonition can be found in Suras 2:65, 5:60, and 7:166. Indeed, know thy Koran well. Besides, it will clear through the smoke and mirrors. By extrapolation, is it any wonder that Muhammedans keep attacking “infidels” – and with no end in sight??

 

MOST significantly, hide nor hair…hue nor cry…is heard from western leaders, each time Allah’s Muslim Terrorists persecute and murder infidels around the world! How can this be?

 

In short, the overwhelming majority of persecution that these 215 million Christians experience around the world — especially the worst forms, such as rape and murder — occurs at the hands of Muslims.

 

If time is on the side of Christians living under Communist regimes, it is not on the side of Christians living under Islam. The center of the great Christian Byzantine Empire is now an increasingly intolerant, rapidly Islamizing Turkey. Carthage, once a bastion of Christianity — where one of Christendom’s greatest theologians, St. Augustine, was born and where the New Testament canon was confirmed in 397 — is today 99% Muslim-majority Tunisia…..read on…if you dare….

 

OMINOUSLY, even in terms of capitulation, the presumption is that Mohammedans will allow so-called infidels to survive. In reality, this is absolutely not the case. Inestimably, it is Islam’s inextricable relationship and nexus to blood that must be understood. To wit, Islam, Sharia Law, must be banned and eliminated from the west – or else!

 

YES, Islam & Blood!

 

INDEED, history will not be kind to those who dared to squander the west’s hard-fought freedoms. Moreover, record after record will abound and define this moment in time as one of abject capitulation. National suicide will become its reviled descriptor and watchword – that is, if an immediate volte face isn’t executed.

 

GUARANTEED!

The Gaza Clashes: What’s Really Happening

 

By DANIEL POMERANTZ 

 APRIL 9, 2018

HonestReporting

Since March 30, there have been intermittent protests, riots, and even armed attacks at the Gaza border.

 

Much of the media coverage has been so poorly informed or even outright misleading, that it can be almost impossible to understand what’s really happening. Israel has, in many cases, been made out to be a violent aggressor intentionally killing peaceful protesters.

 

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

 

That’s why HonestReporting will be actively monitoring, analyzing and communicating throughout these events.

 

Here, for your use and information, is what we’ve seen so far:

 

Re-cap of events

 

  • On April 1, we posted this explanation and analysis of the events up to that date. It was immediately clear that the “protests” also included molotov cocktails, burning tires, rock throwing, and in one case even live gunfire at the IDF.  There were ongoing attempts by rioters to breach the border fence and enter Israel.

 

  • Of the 30,000 Palestinians present, 16 were reportedly killed by IDF sniper fire. The figure later increased to 19.

 

  • It was well known since April 1 that at least ten of the casualties had clear affiliations to terror groups, including Hamas. An analysis of open-source information from Palestinian media brought that number up to 15, and HonestReporting was the first to publish that new information on April 5.

 

  • Another protest/riot on April 6 brought 20,000 people and new violence: including the burning of what may have been 10,000 tires, and further attempts to both attack IDF soldiers and to  infiltrate Israel under the resulting smokescreen. Meanwhile, and this is not a joke, Hamas is now blaming Israel for what it claims is a “shortage” of tires in Gaza. Seriously. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

 

Palestinian Protesters

 

  • A number of Palestinians criticized Hamas for publicizing the deaths of its members, including holding military funerals and rallies. The main objection can be summarized as follows: by revealing that so many of the deaths were actually terrorists, Hamas undermines the PR illusion that this was a “peaceful protest.”

 

 

International investigations?

In the meantime, numerous international parties, including UN Secretary General António Guterres and EU chief Federica Mogherini have begun calling for an international investigation into the actions of the IDF.  Whether Israel adequately investigates itself, and whether the allegations have sufficient gravity are likely to be the key issues in determining whether the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutes a case.

 

If the ICC does prosecute a case, Israel is not the only party under the microscope:  Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda has noted that Hamas or other Palestinian bodies could be subject to investigations related to war crimes for their use of civilians in covering violent activities.

 

The UN and EU, on the other hand, are primarily political bodies and can choose to launch their own investigations merely if their members wish to: without any regard to standards of international law.

 

When the dust settles and the burning-tire-smoke clears, international investigations will likely be the big remaining question.

 

In the meantime, the IDF has already appointed Brig. Gen. Moti Baruch, head of the General Staff’s Doctrine and Training Division to lead the IDF’s own investigation.

 

The latest updates

 

Some of the critical facts and images from Friday’s flare-up have made the mainstream news, yet some of the most informative have remained conspicuously absent.

 

Take, for example, this image round-up by Israellycool’s Aussie Dave: including telling, often dramatic pictures of events, some of which have not been published by any international news source.

 

Another telling scene was captured in this photo of a swastika flying alongside Palestinian flags, with tire-smoke all around:

 

 

 

 

A few nay-sayers on Twitter tried to claim the image was photo-shopped, until they came face to face with this video of the same:

http://s22592.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/WhatsApp-Video-2018-04-06-at-21.41.40.mp4?_=1

And speaking of tire-smoke: in this particularly shameless tweet, the Palestine diplomatic office in the US preposterously claims that Hamas’s own tire-fire is actually an Israeli nerve agent.

 

 

Here is some additional video of tires and fires throughout the area.

 

Next time you hear about Palestinians throwing “stones,” keep in mind that in at least some cases, this is what they are really talking about:

 

 

Just outside Gaza, JPost’s Seth Frantzman caught up with Richard Kemp, former commander, British forces, Afghanistan. Kemp took the media to task pointing out that they don’t necessarily fully understand events even if they’re physically close up. Specifically, Kemp clarified that this is not a “peaceful demonstration” as is often portrayed by the media but rather:

 

…a deliberate and specific intent by a major terrorist organization, recognized around the world as terrorists, to penetrate the border of the State of Israel.

 

Arab world reacts

 

Though reactions are mixed, at least some residents of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan and other Arab countries, took to social media to lambaste Hamas for its exploitation of the inhabitants of Gaza. Meanwhile, despite a show of support at the official level, it seems Palestinians in the West Bank were largely apathetic to the events in Gaza. Notably, top Palestinian Authority cleric Mahmoud al-Habbash declared:

 

[Hamas is] sending Gazans to their deaths for good headlines… [is] trading in suffering and blood [and] no longer fools Palestinian people.

 

And though it’s not in the Arab world, as long as we’re talking reactions we should give credit where it’s due: Reuters was one of the few publications to ask Israelis living near Gaza what they think. Here’s one example:

 

“I’m sorry about what is happening there. I know the situation is very, very difficult,” Israeli farmer Daniel Rahamim said about economic hardship in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave ruled by Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel’s destruction.

 

“But I don’t talk about a peace deal anymore. Maybe we can achieve a long-term ceasefire,” Rahimim, 63, said as he irrigated his crops. He said his 24-year-old daughter, still “traumatized by rockets” left the area after the demonstrations started.

 

Finally, if there was any doubt about the real point of these protests and riots, Hamas leader Yehya Al-Sinwar was crystal clear:

Post by Justin O. Smith

Can anyone provide me with valid legal reasoning – as opposed to bleeding heart globalist sympathetic transnationalism – why the U.S. government or actual American citizens can call an illegal alien a legal alien? If anyone to put together legalese justification, they would either be lying or be dependent on international laws not ratified by the U.S. Senate as required by the U.S. Constitution. In America, YOU CAN’T CREATE LAWS EX NIHILO! The U.S. is a Republic that is governed by the consent of the people as represented by elected legislators who deliberate laws. America is neither a mob democracy or a totalitarian nation ruled by a select oligarchy of elites.

 

That’s my two-cent introduction to some editorial thoughts by Justin Smith about illegal aliens forcing their way onto American soil will continue a process of Obama’s fundamental transformation of the USA into a nation lacking the foundations that have made America great via the individual ability to seek Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. This would be as opposed to the totalitarian State telling YOU what and how to live in an accepted way of life, restricted liberty and what happiness is.

 

Justin writes about the illegal movement of foreign aliens onto American soil. One aspect of the essay that caught my attention is the Leftist funding of a self-proclaimed humanitarian organization called Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Which translated is a globalist concept viz., People Without Borders.

 

This caught my attention because the American Left in league with George Soros desires the destruction of the guarantees in the Constitution and our reason to exist as a sovereign nation in the Declaration of Independence.

 

You probably won’t hear or read too much about Soros involvement, so I’m going to share a video from Glen Beck that over the Soros funding of Pueblo Sin Fronteras. (a video that I might not figure out how to embed on one of blogs in particular. Those folks will have to go to the Beck post, “Trump send troops to stop migrant ‘caravan’ headed for US — but here’s who’s funding the migrant”.)

Beck VIDEO:

http://content.jwplatform.com/players/ydZgHwN5-VYZGOsHs.html

Here is a list of demands from Leftist Pueblo Sin Fronteras on their Facebook page 3/23/18:

 

We demand of Mexico and the United States:

-That they respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families
-That they open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel
-That deportations, which destroy families, come to an end
-No more abuses against us as migrants
-Dignity and justice
-That the US government not end TPS for those who need it
-That the US government stop massive funding for the Mexican government to detain Central American migrants and refugees and to deport them
-That these governments respect our rights under international law, including the right to free expression
-That the conventions on refugee rights not be empty rhetoric

 

Hmm… The only time a sovereign nation should have concerns about the Rights of refugees is when said refugees are sovereignly accepted on a nation’s soil. There is no global constitution the sovereign USA has accepted as the rule of law; hence foreign migrating refugees have zero Rights until the government gives it to them. Illegally crossing the border without granted asylum is a travesty to the American constitutional rule of law.

Illegal Is Illegal

The Invasion of America

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/6/2018 11:05 PM

 

The Leftists Democrats, the socialists and anarchists, never seem to tire in their attempts to destroy our border integrity, what little of it remains, and ensure that the gates of Mexico continue flooding America with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens annually; and, whether or not it was President Trump’s intention, his continued push to legalize 1.8 million Dreamers, in order to highlight Democrats’ refusal to cooperate on border security demands, has actually resulted in a two-hundred percent surge in illegal immigration, from last year. America is currently witnessing a caravan of some 1500 or more illegal aliens heading this way, after being organized and funded by the radical, transnational, leftist group of Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders).

 

Many duplicitous elements are also at play, as just this February, America witnessed a proposal set forth by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and Republican Senator Susan Collins, by and large a RINO, that would halt all immigration enforcement against any illegal aliens who arrive before June 2018, in an egregious violation of the four pillars of immigration initially laid out by the president. Not only does this proposal ignore the lessons of 9/11, it increases the risk of crime and terrorism, and it has already ensured a new wave of illegal immigration, effectively turning the United States into a sanctuary nation where the rule of law holds no value.

 

In March of last year, President Trump’s initial tough stance on immigration seemed to have effectively put the brakes on illegal immigration, but as his stance appeared to soften so too did we see an uptick in movement across the southern border. According to Homeland Security statistics, over 16,000 illegal aliens were apprehended last March, but this March the number jumped to over 50,000, up from 37,000 in February.

 

President Trump has even suggested the possibility of a DACA deal, although he also called it “dead” in one breath, while he castigated Democrats for not making a deal in the next breath. This ambiguity has now attracted thousands of more illegal aliens, who are currently heading our way from all across Central America and Mexico, a documented fact. Look for many thousands more of young teens and unaccompanied “children” to start arriving again at our ports of entry, within the next few weeks, and perhaps several hundreds of thousands more by years end, but the leftists, Democrats and liberal Republicans don’t care, since MS-13 and other Mexican and Guatemalan drug cartels aren’t swarming through their neighborhoods.

 

Only in the past two decades has this country allowed the advocates of diversity and multicultural cosmopolitan-one world-order-Marxism to take a firm grip on the reins of our immigration policies. Many Democrats were actually espousing common sense border security as early as the 1990s.

 

In 1993, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) stated: “The day when America could be the welfare system for Mexico is gone. We simply can’t afford it.”

 

In ‘Lessons from 1986 Immigration Reform’ (February 4th, 2013), Senator Chuck Grassley noted that Democrat Senator Howard Metzenbaum stated in 1985: ” … there is only one realistic way that you can stop illegal immigration into this country, and that is by making it illegal and being tough enough that illegal immigrants cannot work in this country.”

 

Even the New York Times, ever more the mouthpiece for the transnationalists and Marxists across the globe, had more sense on this topic, as noted by journalist Ann Coulter and exhibited in an editorial from September 29, 1997, stating: “Fighting illegal immigration is an important and difficult job. But Congress should do it in a way that will deter illegal entry at the border.”

 

Now, just as lawyers working for the Obama Administration coached illegal aliens, who could not speak English, to keep repeating the phrase “credible fear”, so too are the Soros funded organizers using this same tactic. And illegal aliens will soon appear and claim that they face a “credible fear” in their country of origin, and before the first liberal crocodile tear can fall, they’ll be given a court date and “refugee” status, as they disappear into the homeland regions, only to reappear with driver’s licenses at our voting booths, welfare offices, and DACA protests, holding signs that read “No Bigots, No Borders” and waving Mexican flags alongside upside down American flags.

 

Many Americans and globalists scream that any attempt to stop this current wave of illegal aliens from crossing into the U.S. is illegal. The international court may agree, but we are still a sovereign nation, with all the rights and authority that it suggests, and as such, we as a people have every right to stop these folks at the border and make them apply in Mexico, if they are really refugees at all. Upon verifying their refugee status, our government can decide at that point, just how many to admit, if any.

 

In the meantime, illegal is illegal, whether an elected official wants them here for cheap labor or padding the voting rolls by legitimizing these illegals. The simplest answers, right in front of our leaders faces, if not for their own agendas, would include closing our borders tight to anyone without a visa or a passport, activating E-Verify, moving immediately to deport all 30 million plus illegal aliens, and placing a temporary halt — a moratorium — on all future immigration, until this current generation of immigrants, the illegals who manage to stay and legal alike, have had a long enough period to fully integrate and assimilate.

 

What will President Trump do, if and when the Democrats call his hand? Will he really follow through with his proposed amnesty, turning at least five more states blue/ Democrat and setting up an avenue for amnesty for 30 million of the other illegal aliens in America? We must not give this amnesty under any set of circumstances, since a very small minority of these illegal aliens have actually been here since being infants or toddlers, and even if they were, they’ve had decades to correct their status.

 

This invasion of America by illegal aliens represents a strategic threat to the United States’ sovereignty and our American way of life, but our leaders seem content to wallow in their own fatal incompetence, as they have abandoned America to “whatever will be will be”, failing to stand for American lives, property and liberty. These illegal aliens and their leftist supporters are attempting to devastate our moral heart and freeze our national will to defend our nation, and in this sense, Trump is playing a dangerous game on immigration, which, if not handled properly, will certainly be the final nail in the coffin of Our Republic, sending America into a full blown barely functional authoritarian socialist tyranny.

John Bolton’s Appointment Rattles The Muslim Brotherhood Echo Chamber


Act for America emailed an excerpt of an article from The Federalist with the email subject line “The Muslim Brotherhood is Rattled”. The Federalist article by Ben Weingarten highlights that John Bolton’s appointment as National Security Advisor has rattled the transnational Islamic terrorist organization the Muslim Brotherhood (aka Ikhwan to many Arab speaking people) because Bolton has had the correct assessment that the terrorist network indeed should be on the State Department’s designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

 

Here is the Act for America email intro:

 

The left has made it their mission to smear anyone who opposes violent jihad, and cast them as “Islamophobic.” Recently, former ambassador John Bolton has been the target of such attacks because of his appointment as National Security Advisor (NSA) to the President. This is not only an attempt to discredit John Bolton, it is an attempt to protect the Muslim Brotherhood from finally being designated a terrorist organization.

 

As patriotic American’s we must stand up and not only support the appointment of Ambassador John Bolton, but also tell Congress it is time, once and for all, to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Click here to tell your local Members of Congress enough is enough.

John Bolton’s Appointment Rattles The Muslim Brotherhood Echo Chamber

The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality.

 

By Ben Weingarten

APRIL 5, 2018

The Federalist

 

The attacks on former ambassador John Bolton following his appointment as National Security Advisor (NSA) have inadvertently served as some of his strongest endorsements.

 

First there were the hysterical cries of “neocon warmonger!” This would come as news to the NSA-designate, who was never a “liberal mugged by reality” but a self-identified “Goldwater conservative” from the start; explicitly rejects the belief in democracy-building as imperative to achieving America’s national interest under democratic peace theory; and suggests, exaggerating for effect, that following the removal of Saddam Hussein, as soon as practicable he would have told the Iraqis, “You’re on your own. Here’s a copy of the Federalist papers. Good luck.”

 

Although the “neocon warmonger” moniker is inapt, to say the least, maybe it is not such a bad thing if our enemies buy this line. In fact, this may be part of President Trump’s strategic rationale as a dealmaker for elevating a “peace-through-strength” realist portrayed as a cantankerous cowboy to the top of the National Security Council.

 

Then followed another narrative: Bolton is not only a real-life Dr. Strangelove, but worse. He is actually an adroit bureaucrat—“crazy and dangerous.” Then-senator Joe Biden, a man prone to malapropism, actually put it best when, in Bolton’s retelling, Biden said of him in 2005: “My problem with you, over the years, has been, you’re too competent. I mean, I would rather you be stupid and not very effective.”

 

But the truly revelatory attacks concern Bolton’s positions on Islamic supremacism, which reflect an understanding that jihadists pose a mortal threat that must be countered using every element of national power. You know these attacks are meaningful partly because they have been made under cover of a smear campaign.

 

Opposing Jihadis Isn’t the Same as Opposing Islam

 

Bolton has been cast as an “Islamophobe” for the thought crime of being a counterjihadist who supports other counterjihadists. The charge of “Islamophobe” is a baseless, intellectually dishonest, and lazy slur. Although it does not deserve to be dignified with a response, it goes without saying that there is nothing to indicate Bolton harbors an irrational fear of Islam, and everything to indicate he holds the very rational belief that we must defeat Islamic supremacists who wish to subject us to their tyrannical rule or destroy us.

 

“Islamophobe” is being lobbed at Bolton to try and discredit him and ultimately scuttle policies he supports intended to strike at the heart of Islamic supremacism. The “tell” is that the articles raising such accusations frequently cast counterjihadist policy positions themselves as de facto evidence of Islamophobic bigotry.

 

As the representative par excellence of the position that America should exit the Iran deal, it should come as no surprise that the Iran deal echo chamber in exile has sprung into action in savaging the ambassador with the most outlandish of insinuations. For the Islamophobia campaign, the lesser-recognized and perhaps more insidious Muslim Brotherhood echo chamber has been activated. Bolton is on record as supporting its designation as a terrorist organization, and Brotherhood apologists and true believers cannot abide this.

 

Either We Work With Terrorists or We Don’t

 

Recall that the national security and foreign policy establishment has long held that as a “political Islamist” group, the Muslim Brotherhood ought to be treated as a legitimate diplomatic partner. The theory is that we have to choose between violent and seemingly peaceful Islamic supremacists, ignoring the fact that their differences are tactical and strategic, not ideological. They are all still Islamic supremacists.

 

Most infamously, the Obama administration supported the ascension of Mohamed Morsi, leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, to president during the Arab spring, with predictably horrific consequences in particular for the nation’s Christians that persist even in the era of the much-maligned counterjihadist Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

 

Such disastrously naïve policy pushes ignore that the Muslim Brotherhood is the tip of the Sunni jihadist spear. It’s the ideological fountainhead from which violent jihadist groups from Hamas to al-Qaeda and ISIS spring. The “political” element of the Muslim Brotherhood is, if anything, more pernicious precisely because its adherents do not goose-step, guns in hand, in the public square.

 

No, the political arm engages in political and ideological warfare, tactfully seeking to impose its will through policy and subterfuge. “Social welfare” activities provide a convenient cover for the group’s ultimate aims. As the Brotherhood put it in its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America:

 

The Ikhwan [Muslim Brothers] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

 

On account of the Brotherhood’s nature and activities, it has been designated as a terrorist organization from Egypt to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. A bill first introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz in 2015, calling for the U.S. secretary of state to submit a report to Congress on designating the Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization in America, lays out several other reasons the group merits this, including:

 

The [group’s] explicit calls for violent jihad, with the end goal of imposing Islamic law over all the world of the group’s founder and spiritual leader Hassan al-Banna, and the consistently violent Islamic supremacist content of the Brotherhood’s core membership texts

 

The terrorist efforts of numerous jihadist groups explicitly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the efforts of individual Muslim Brotherhood members designated as terrorists by the U.S. government themselves

 

The litany of terrorist financing cases involving the Muslim Brotherhood, including the…Holy Land Foundation case [the largest terror financing case in U.S. history] …

 

Do What We Like or Get Smeared as a Bigot

 

On the campaign trail and in its early days the Trump administration indicated an interest in designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. But within months it shelved these plans. What happened? The Muslim Brotherhood echo chamber deployed.

 

The Brotherhood undertook an extensive lobbying and information operation designed to dissuade the administration’s plans, reportedly backed by millions of dollars. The U.S. foreign policy establishment quickly proliferated articles and comments in prominent mainstream publications defending the Muslim Brotherhood against charges of being a jihadist group, adding that designated it as such would be impractical and impracticable. Notably, The New York Times went so far as to print an op-ed in the Brotherhood’s defense written by Clinton Foundation-linked Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Gehad el-Haddad.

 

In the midst of this flurry of articles, it leaked to the media that the CIA and State Department both produced memos against Muslim Brotherhood terrorist designation.

 

Concurrently, counterjihadists throughout the Trump administration were subjected to a barrage of attacks. Many would ultimately be sidelined, though some like Secretary of State-designate Mike Pompeo survived. He, like Bolton, is being attacked as an Islamophobic bigot as well.

 

Bolton recognized at the time that these events were not random. During a July 2017 interview he noted:

 

There’s been an amazing campaign. It’s always amazing to me how these stories and op-eds and lines of chatter appear simultaneously, all very well-coordinated…The argument being the Muslim Brotherhood is a complicated organization, not every part of it is devoted to the support of terrorism. Some of them do humanitarian work and so on; a declaration that the entire Brotherhood is a foreign terrorist organization would actually buttress the cause of the jihadis; so, therefore, don’t do anything.

 

Bolton’s riposte?

 

Let’s take the notion inherent in that argument as having some validity, that there are pieces of the Muslim Brotherhood that don’t qualify under the statutory definition we have of a foreign terrorist organization…My response to that is, ‘Okay, we need some careful drafting based on the evidence we have now that excludes some affiliates, some components of the Muslim Brotherhood from the designation.’ I’m prepared to live with that, of course, until we get more complete information.

 

This position is what really draws the ire of the Brotherhood echo chamber. CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirator in the previously mentioned largest terror financing case in U.S. history, published a press release condemning the appointment of “Islamophobe John Bolton” as NSA, citing corroborating articles from such non-biased sources as Think Progress, The Nation, Islamophobia.com, Vox, and Huffington Post.

 

As I have written previously, CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and jihadi ties are numerous and longstanding, involving not only its founders and present leaders to Hamas, but its harboring of apologists for Islamic terrorism, and alleged impeding of counterterrorism efforts.

 

Bolton’s endorsement of designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization illustrates a keen understanding of the size, scope, and nature of the Islamic supremacist threat that the national security and foreign policy establishment lacks. It is a proxy for a worldview that if followed to its logical conclusion would turn our largely futile efforts to beat back jihadists over the last 17 years on their head. This view takes Islamic supremacists at their word in their desire to impose upon us the Sharia-based, totalitarian theopolitical ideology to which they adhere. Hence the pushback.

 

Applying this worldview would lead to decisions antithetical to the progressive Wilsonian internationalists and political Islamists on myriad issues in the Middle East, including:

 

  • Treatment of Israel versus the Arabs

 

  • The Iran deal

 

  • Iran policy more broadly, including appropriate measures against its proxies in Syria and Lebanon

 

  • Qatar’s bellicosity

 

  • Turkey’s behavior under Islamic supremacist Erdogan

 

The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who self-evidently wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality. This specious and slanderous smear campaign reflects all the better on the appointment of Bolton as NSA.

Marxism, the classless society and history


The supposed draw that unites global humanity under Marxism is a paradise of a classless society. To achieve this Marxist paradise the current lower classes under the thumb of the slaving upper wealth classes, must endure degrees dictatorship of the Proletariat (lower) classes that weeds out those self-starting independent-minded entrepreneurs that better themselves and thus the society the entrepreneurs live in.

 

This so-called beneficent dictatorship must use brutal totalitarian means to achieve the classless Marxist society. I am guessing the dumbed-down idiots think (or deceive themselves) periods of totalitarian brainwashing that ends Liberty-minded Rights to tow the line of the State (the enigmatic Proletarian dictatorship) is cool (it has been rumored that millennials attracted to Marxism use “lit).

 

Lester DeKoster writing for Acton.org in more academic terms than I can present, demonstrates the idiocy of the pipe-dream of a classless society.

Marxism, the classless society and history

By LESTER DEKOSTER 

APRIL 04, 2018

Acton Institute

 

Marx always insisted that he derived his system from a careful study of history. Marxists are fond of insisting that they think “concretely,” which means they always stick to the facts. That this is not really the case may be shown by an illustration.

 

Let us suppose that a student of Marxism grasps the truth that the concept of the classless society, the earthly paradise, is not only the capstone of Marxist theory but is also the capstone of Marxist propaganda. It is this vision which distinguishes Marxism from other forms of violent social criticism, like, say, anarchism, which has never been a serious contender for men’s allegiance. Sensing, then, that Marxism draws much of its propa­ganda appeal, both consciously and unconsciously, from the concept of a perfect society, the critic begins to examine that idea in some detail.

 

He finds, first of all, as we have noted, that the Marxist is very vague about the whole notion of the classless society. Marx hardly discussed it systematically. Lenin generalized about it, and Stalin was much too busy explaining its delayed arrival to wish to theorize concerning it. If the critic presses the matter, and asks for more detail, he learns that the Communist draws no blueprints of the classless society now. Why? Well, basically because he cannot. Why not? Because it is impossible to do so in current language and thought-forms. Once more, why not? Because the very concepts and language which men now employ are fashioned by the environment of class struggle out of which they, like all spiritual forms, arise. Our very habits of thought are conditioned by class struggle. This is true because, Marx taught, matter always controls the forms of logic, psychology, and language. This is simply materialism.

 

Therefore the language, logic, and thought-forms of history as we live it cannot apply to the new society, where there will be no struggle. Thought-forms on this side of the revolution do not apply to life on the other side. History has in this sense no claim on the classless society—the same history, of course, from which Marx claimed to draw his certainty that the classless so­ciety would be achieved.

 

Suppose, in the second place, that the critic insists that there must be something to be learned about the classless society on this side of the revolution, and points out that the Marxist him­self does, after all, talk and think about it. And suppose that the critic proceeds to argue that communist experiments have been tried and found wanting, and communal enterprises have often failed; he then tries to apply the causes of these failures, as he understands them, to the idea of the classless society. What then?

 

He finds that the Marxist rejects abruptly all analogies drawn from history. Why? Because the classless society is, you will recall, strictly speaking beyond history. History as we know it, gov­erned by the dialectic and conducive to struggle, will cease when the classless society comes into being. This being so, all argument drawn from present history cannot apply to post-history, to the classless society. The Marxist will not be bound by the lessons of history, the same history which is supposed to validate Marxism. . . .

 

Or, finally, the critic draws one last arrow from his quiver. He seeks to project conclusions drawn from the nature of man himself into the new society. If man is like this, then in the classless society he must react like that, and so on. Briskly the Communist reminds him that the only “man” history knows is the victim of class struggle, whether he be of the proletariat or of the bourgeoisie. This kind of man will not exist in the class­less society. Therefore any inference drawn from the one kind of man will not necessarily, or even probably, apply to the other. In judging the classless society, the Marxist accepts no responsi­bility to what history or introspection teach concerning the nature of mankind.

 

In summary, the Marxist denies that any aspect of history as we now know it can be used as a standard of judgment in the discussion of the classless society. This places him in an enviable argumentative position, or, rather, this removes the concept of the classless society out of the realm of argument altogether. The idea of the classless society becomes amorphous enough to be all things to all Marxists, and nothing to all critics. Between it and history there is, in reality, no logical passage at all. On this subject the Communist and the anti-Communist volley their charges over a bottomless gulf—the chasm which divides history from post-history.

 

This chasm between the dispensations is important. It repre­sents for Marxism (though no Marxist puts it so) that hill which in Pilgrim’s Progress is where the great burden of historical evil drops away. This infinite gulf between history and the classless society is for Marxism the unintentional recognition that man must pass through the infinite, in some sense, before he can enter “heaven.” The complete break which Marxist theory makes be­tween history and the new society means, in fact, that man as he is will never get into the new world unaided.

 

It is quite inconceivable how a Marxist who lived before and through the revolution could enter the classless society. How could he, in reality, put on the “new man” in lieu of the man who had been formed by all the tensions of class struggle? And if he brought into the new society any of the vestiges of the old, they could become germs from which evil might once more develop.

 

It is provocative how closely the Marxist position parallels Christian doctrine. It is Christian teaching that nothing of his­tory shall enter unchanged into heaven. It is Marxist doctrine that nothing of history pertains to the classless society. But in Christianity the “new man” of heaven will be the “old man” reborn. The continuity is not broken. This rebirth, however, is not the work of the man, but the work of God.

 

Marxism, based as it is on philosophical materialism, has no concept of rebirth. At some point in history, the same persons who make the revolution, who staff and support the dictatorship of the proletariat, are supposed to enter the classless society. The fact that that process is presumed to be gradual obscures but does not lessen the tension which holds between things of “this” history and things of “that” post-history. The Marxist who makes that fateful crossing from history into post-history would leave his very self behind, for that self has been nurtured on the thought, the logic, the passions, the struggles, and the material realities of history. Without these, what kind of self, on Marxist grounds, remains? . . .

 

To escape historical evil the selves which now live and act in history would have to be destroyed. So long as the self of man is not regarded as sui generis, that is, a particular after its own kind, but rather as derivative from the material substratum which forms it, that self must disappear if the material undergoes radical change. This means that the men who conduct the revolution, who staff and support the dictatorship of the proletariat, could not enter the promised land. Nor could their children, born in the context of struggle. The gulf between history and post-history is fixed, and affords no crossing. This is instructive. It means simply that man cannot save himself.

He earned his doctorate from the University of Michigan in 1964, after completing a dissertation on “Living Themes in the Thought of John Calvin: A Bibliographical Study.” During his tenure at the college, DeKoster was influential in expanding the holdings of what would become the H. Henry Meeter Center for Calvin Studies, one of the preeminent collections of Calvinist and Reformed texts in the world. DeKoster also amassed an impressive personal library of some ten thousand books, which includes a wide array of sources testifying to both the breadth and depth of his intellectual vigor. DeKoster was a professor of speech at the college and enjoyed taking up the part of historic Christianity and confessional Reformed theology in debates on doctrinal and social issues that pressed the church throughout the following decades. Both his public debates and private correspondence were marked by a spirit of charity that tempered and directed the needed words of rebuke. After his retirement from Calvin College in 1969, DeKoster labored for a decade as the editor of The Banner, the denominational magazine of the Christian Reformed Church. This position provided him with another platform from which to critically engage the life of the church and the world. During this time DeKoster also launched, in collaboration with Gerard Berghoef (a longtime elder in the church) and their families, the Christian’s Library Press, a publishing endeavor intended to provide timely resources both for the church’s laity and its leadership.
