I’d not want to be a European

Two headlines from June 1st:

EU warns Israel: Policy of demolishing Palestinian homes in Area C will harm relations

Comment: The nerve of them!

French peace plan seeks rigid deadlines for every stage of Israeli-Palestinian talks

Comment: The writers of these pieces are very left wing Israeli journalists, but it’s good to have some statistics – and to see that Israel is acting in its best interests as much as possible and not folding completely under this pressure.  But can you imagine having this pressure, threats like these, consistently brought to bear upon you?

It seems the arrogance of the Europeans towards Israel is never going to abate unless and until they are on their knees trying to survive, and lack the energy and the will to dictate to Israel how they think she should behave.

And so, in light of this, all I can think about is how European nations are being overrun with Muslim immigrants, and how it is possible that the continent – already beginning to come apart at its Rome-sewn seams – will buckle and collapse under the economic weight of this flood; how Europeans may feasibly become so subdued and intimidated in their lifestyles by aggressive Muslim supremacists that they may finally, finally understand why Israel has set conditions for ‘peace’; and that they, wanting only to be free from the repressive bind of Islam – though it is already too late – may at last release their stranglehold on Israel.

Meanwhile I strongly hope that Americans and Australians and other Judeo-Christian-founded nations will soberly see what is happening to Europe, and will act radically to slam on the brakes against the efforts of Islamic stealth jihad within and against their own nations before it is too late.

The first bulwark against such a curse?  To align themselves solidly with Israel, and against those nations that hate her.

Unless Israel’s enemies are our enemies, we will be hers.

He has traveled to various nations, speaking to Christians about developments in Israel. In 2011 he was accredited by the Israel Ministry of Tourism as a tour guide, and takes individuals, small groups, families, busloads and helicopter-loads of Christians around God’s Land.
