And So I Go: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Posted on: June 26, 2010

A friend sent me this.  It is a very sad and sobering read, or really a must read.  We Conservatives are  easy going people who just want to live and let live.  we don’t like nasty fighting and mobs and violence.  Well we had better be prepared because Obama is getting his troops fired up and ready to take us on in November.  So maybe if we keep the things in this article in mind, in the FRONT of our minds, then maybe we have a chance of saving America.  In God I trust but God doesn’t  get involved with these worldly things.  He gave us a piece of himself that tells us right from wrong, decent from indecent, charity from greed and He expects us to use what He has given to make our lives  and the lives of others here on  Earth as pleasant as possible.  Slavery, and even worse Serfdom is not pleasant.    But serfdom is what Obama has in mind for us all and he has gotten one point with health care bill,  he will probably get the next block with financial reform.  The last piece in his plan is to take over the energy  industry and his crisis of choice is the BP oil spill that he is doing all in his power to make worse than it should be.  BB

Subject: Fw: Europe today – a MUST read……..the West tomorrow ????
A very sobering speech!
Geert Wilders is a Dutch Member of Parliament.

In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: Who lost Europe ?’
Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the
Netherlands , at the Four Seasons, New York , introducing an Alliance
of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem
..

Dear friends,

Thank you very much for inviting me.

I come to America with a mission.  All is not well in the old world.
There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be
optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of
Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of
Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of
the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western
civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe .  Then,
I will say a few things about Islam.  To close I will tell you about
a meeting in Jerusalem .

The Europe you know is changing.

You have probably seen the landmarks.  But in all of these cities,
sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is
another world.  It is the world of the parallel society created by
Muslim mass-migration.

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim
neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even
seen.  And if they are, they might regret it.  This goes for the
police as well.  It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk
around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of
children.  Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three
steps ahead.  With mosques on many street corners.  The shops have
signs you and I cannot read.  You will be hard-pressed to find any
economic activity  These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious
fanatics.  These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming
in every city across Europe .  These are the building-blocks for
territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe ,
street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe .  With larger
congregations than there are in churches.  And in every European city
there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church
in the region.  Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take
Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden .  In many cities the
majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.  Paris is now
surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods.  Mohammed is the most
popular name among boys in many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be
mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that
would be an insult to Muslims.

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to
all pupils.  In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost
exclusively by Muslims.  Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore,
whore’.  Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but
to stations in the country of origin.

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed
offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is
increasingly true of Darwin .  The history of the Holocaust can no
longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal
system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women
without head scarves.  Last week a man almost died after being beaten
up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the
Ramadan.

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst
wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.  French is now commonly
spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel .  I could go
on forever with stories like this.  Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe .  San Diego
University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the
population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now.  Bernhard
Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers.  And the numbers would not be threatening
if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.  But
there are few signs of that.  The Pew Research Center reported that
half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than
their loyalty to France .  One-third of French Muslims do not object
to suicide attacks.  The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported
that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide
caliphate.  Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’  And this is how
we give them respect.  We have Muslim official state holidays.

The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia
in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.  We have cabinet
members with passports from Morocco and Turkey .

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty
crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and
bus drivers, to small-scale riots.  Paris has seen its uprising in
the low-income suburbs, the banlieus.  I call the perpetrators
‘settlers’.  Because that is what they are.  They do not come to
integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into
their Dar-al-Islam.  Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively
against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their
neighborhoods, their cities, their countries.  Moreover, Muslims are
now a swing vote not to be ignored.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the
prophet.  His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be
criticized.  Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say
like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no
problem.  But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile,
and had several marriages – at the same time.  Islamic tradition
tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered
and even had prisoners of war executed.  Mohammed himself slaughtered
the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.  If it is good for Islam, it is
good.  If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion.  Sure, it has a
god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins.  But in its essence Islam is a
political ideology.  It is a system that lays down detailed rules for
society and the life of every person.  Islam wants to dictate every
aspect of life.  Islam means ‘submission’.  Islam is not compatible
with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia.
If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or
national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde
force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.
The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative,
and sees Israel as the aggressor.  I have lived in this country and
visited it dozens of times.  I support Israel .  First, because it is
the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and
including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third
because Israel is our first line of defense.

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating
Islam’s territorial advance.  Israel is facing the front lines of
jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand,
Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia .  Israel is simply
in the way  The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel .  It is a war
against the West.  It is jihad.  Israel is simply receiving the blows
that are meant for all of us.  If there would have been no Israel ,
Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its
energy and its desire for conquest.  Thanks to Israeli parents who
send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in
Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers
looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to
address the grievances of our Muslim minorities.  But if Israel were,
God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It
would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change
their behavior, and accept our values.  On the contrary, the end of
Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam.
They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that
the West is weak, and doomed.  The end of Israel would not mean the
end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning.  It would
mean the start of the final battle for world domination.  If they can
get Israel , they can get everything  So-called journalists volunteer
to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing
extremists’ or ‘racists’.  In my country, the Netherlands , 60
percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as
the number one policy mistake since World War II.  And another 60
percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.  Yet there is a greater
danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last
man standing.  The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can
imagine.  An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and
democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a
loss of military might for America – as its allies will turn into
enemies, enemies with atomic bombs.  With an Islamic Europe, it would
be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and
Jerusalem .

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts.  My generation
never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver
platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.  All
throughout Europe , American cemeteries remind us of the young boys
who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish.  My generation
does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians.  We can only
hand over this hard won liberty to Europe ‘s children in the same
state in which it was offered to us.  We cannot strike a deal with
mullahs and imams.  Future generations would never forgive us.  We
cannot squander our liberties.  We simply do not have the right to do
so.

We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic
stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

Please take the time to read and understand what is written here,
Please send it to every free person that you know, it is so very
important.

The world worked together to help bring apartheid to an end, writes
Kader Asmal. So why allow it to live on in Israel/Palestine?

In 1980, I served on a commission of enquiry into reported violations
of international law by Israel following its invasion of Lebanon. We
spent 22 days in Lebanon, Israel and the surrounding areas. The
devastation in Lebanon was quite overwhelming. Bombings were carried
on while we were there; whole new blocks of flats in Beirut were
destroyed simply because they were there. The noise, the dust and the
sound of bullets were ceaseless.

And then, after our preliminary work had been done, there were the
Sabra and Shatila massacres of hundreds of defenceless refugees, shot
dead by the Israeli surrogates, the Phalange. The Palestine
Liberation Organisation (PLO) had been expelled from Lebanon. Golda
Meir had said coldly that there was no such thing as a Palestinian.
Now the visible signs of such people had to be destroyed, as with the
famous Palestine Library in Beirut and the hospital records in the
West Bank.

Israel Shahack, head of an Israeli civil-liberties body, drew my
attention to the similarities between Israel and apartheid South
Africa: “You see,” he said, “the West Bank and Gaza are our
bantustans, reserves of labour for Israel but no freedom of labour.”

The Palestinians have been betrayed by those who believe in the legal
system that holds the world together and they have been betrayed by
their neighbours, who bought peace from Israel. The European Union
grants Israel the enormous advantage of preferential trading status
through the EU-Israel Association Agreement, and billions of American
dollars in “aid” allows Israel to have the most technologically
advanced army and counter-intelligence agency in the world.

It is time to delegitimise this entity. We did that to the apartheid
government in South Africa, and the same must happen to Israel. We
spent years trying to isolate South Africa, and the campaign grew to
embrace a worldwide call for state-ordained boycotts, including
military, economic, sporting, academic and cultural sanctions. These
campaigns stirred the conscience of the world.

Today, in Israel, non-Jewish nationals have no right to return. Non-
Jews are severely restricted in owning land in Israel and in the
occupied territories. There is no freedom of movement for
Palestinians, who can also lose their residence rights for the
slightest reason. There is no right to assembly without the
permission of the police. Israel, as the occupying power, has
appropriated nearly 30% of the West Bank and destroyed the
cohesiveness of East Jerusalem by building Israeli homes.

Every tenet of freedom and equality is violated by Israel, not only
in the occupied territories but also in relation to their attitude to
Palestine. Today the West Bank and East Jerusalem are home to nearly
half a million Israeli settlers who are subject to Israeli and not
Palestinian law. Special “Israeli-only” roads join these settlements
together and to Israel. There are more than 600 checkpoints in the
West Bank, where Palestinians need identity cards to travel from one
village to another. Israel has imposed a matrix of controls that
surpasses the restrictions once imposed by South Africa’s apartheid
regime on the black population.

With the construction of its “apartheid wall”, deemed illegal by the
International Court of Justice (ICC) in 2004, Israel has not just
annexed a further 10% of Palestinian land but has divided the West
Bank into increasingly watertight ghettoes.

CONTINUES BELOW

A look at a map of the West Bank reveals that, in reality, it is now
part of greater Israel. There are two classes of people living in
this territory: Jews who have rights and privileges and non-Jews who
have neither. This is apartheid, and has been identified as such by
former American president Jimmy Carter, among others. Given that the
world worked together to help bring apartheid to an end, why allow
its persistence in Israel/Palestine?

The United States perceives Israel as a strategic ally. Furthermore,
the Israeli lobby is by far the most powerful on Capitol Hill. The EU
is paralysed by the genocide committed against Europe’s Jews in the
1940s. This turns the Palestinians into scapegoats for Europe’s past
crimes, while equating the Israeli state with the Jewish people, many
of whom worldwide passionately oppose its policies.

With no external pressure to conclude a peace agreement with the
Palestinians, domestic pressure in Israel for peace has become muted.
Israel will not voluntarily relinquish control of the Palestinian
territories, extend equal rights to Palestinian citizens of Israel,
or negotiate a just resolution to all outstanding issues if there are
no negative consequences for maintaining the status quo.

Whenever an opportunity for negotiation arises, Israel derails it
with a provocative act. In December 2008 and January 2009, the
Israeli military onslaught on Gaza, named Operation Cast Lead, left 1
400 Palestinians civilians dead, including 116 women and 313
children. At no time in the history of apartheid did the racists use
tactics such as those used by the Israelis: aerial strafing of built-
up areas; tanks and cannon against houses; the destruction of water
and sanitation works

In addition to the fatalities and injuries, tens of thousands of
Palestinians were left homeless. Israel tightened the illegal
blockade on Gaza in place since June 2007, preventing assistance
being rendered to casualties and the importation of materials to
rebuild Gaza. Nearly 20 000 Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza
are in Israel’s prisons.

In April 2009 the United Nations Human Rights Commission established
an independent international fact-finding mission to investigate
violations of international human-rights and humanitarian law during
Operation Cast Lead. It was led by Richard Goldstone, a former member
of the South African Constitutional Court and chief prosecutor with
the international criminal tribunals for Rwanda and the former
Yugoslavia.

In September 2009 the Goldstone Report was released. It accused both
the Israeli Defence Force and Palestinian militants of war crimes and
possible crimes against humanity. It recommended that Israel and
Hamas carry out independent, credible investigations, and that the
allegations be brought to the ICC if they didn’t. The Israeli
government rejected the report’s findings; Hamas first rejected and
then embraced it.

The most damning of the report’s findings is paragraph 1886 of its
conclusions:
“The Mission recognises that not all deaths constitute violations of
international humanitarian law. The principle of proportionality
acknowledges that, under certain strict conditions, actions resulting
in the loss of civilian life may not be unlawful. What makes the
application and assessment of proportionality difficult in respect of
many of the events investigated by the Mission is that deeds by the
Israeli armed forces and words of military and political leaders
prior to and during the operations indicate that, as a whole, they
were premised on a deliberate policy of disproportionate force aimed
not at the enemy but at the ‘supporting infrastructure’. In practice,
this appears to have meant the civilian population.”

In October 2009 the UN General Assembly endorsed Goldstone’s
findings, as did the EU Parliament on March 10 2010 — and on March
22 the EU Foreign Affairs Council voted to enhance the EU/Israel
Association agreement, providing Israel with even more favourable
trading conditions!

It would appear that if there is a contest in EU policy between human
rights and economic benefit, human rights come off worse. Yet the EU
recently cancelled a trade agreement with Sri Lanka on human-rights
grounds. The only logical conclusion is that Israel has impunity
because of Europe’s past crimes. The moral question remains: Why must
the Palestinian people pay with their lives and freedom to ease the
consciences of Europeans?

Now we must engage in a “legitimacy war”. Doubt must be cast on
several dimensions of Israel’s legitimacy, its status as a moral and
law-abiding actor, as an occupying power, and with respect to its
willingness to respect the UN
and abide by international law. No more impunity. Israel’s leaders
must be held
to account.

The Goldstone report lends weight to calls from around the world to
disrupt
normal relations with Israel: by boycotting cultural and academic
activities,
by disrupting trade relations through disinvestment, or by refusing
to load and unload ships and planes carrying cargo to or from Israel,
and by pressing governments to impose economic sanctions.

It is up to all of us dedicated to peace and justice to do all we can
to help the Palestinians prevail in the legitimacy war and bring
their long ordeal to an end.

Barack Obama was my classmate.
WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: Overwhelm the system

Barack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he
is brilliant. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is purposely
overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic
crisis and social chaos — thereby destroying capitalism and our
country from within.

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class
of ’83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is
following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors
at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by
overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement
demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they’re alarming.
Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn
the
United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent
majority
that desperately needs government for survival … and can be counted
on
to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no
responsibility
to pay for it.     Universal health care. The health care bill had
very
little to do with health care. It had everything to do with
unionizing
millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding
15,000 to
20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions).
Obama
doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans
will add
trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it
cements
the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big
government.
Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending
bill
in the middle of a depression?     Cap and trade. Like health care
legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has
nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with
redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a
criminal
payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy
unions
and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then
be
counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back
hundreds
of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic
Party
to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on
Americans
with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama “spread the
wealth around.”   Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who’s asking for a
51st
state? Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and
government
entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not
American
taxpayers. But this has been Obama’s plan all along. His goal is to
add
two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million
loyal
Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.   Legalize 12
million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential
new
citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and
bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters
who
can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion
dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free
medical,
education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to
Democrat
contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions — including billions
of
dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the
country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep
paying
union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out
(after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering
$125
billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All
those
public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated
salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes
broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the
Democrat
Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends
justify the
means.  Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners,
and job
creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of
taxpayers,
redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did
nothing
to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically
cut
taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically
raise
taxes to starve his political opposition.    With the acts outlined
above,
Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding
constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged
class of public employees who work for big government; and a
government
dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as
socialist
rulers by overwhelming the system.    Add it up and you’ve got the
perfect
Marxist scheme — all devised by my Columbia University college
classmate
Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan.

This is a very interesting article and with the things being reported in Dearborn, Michigan, I fear that this could be our reality someday.

I haven’t the time to read the entire thing today because I’m cleaning, but I’ll read it in its entirety tomorrow and will begin researching the facts included in it so I can see for myself if what he is saying is true. I’ll let you know what I find.

I thought the topics you posted on were very interesting. Nice Blog and keep posting🙂
