Remembering Yom ha Shoah

 


Recently we remembered and reflected upon Yom ha Shoah. We must also look back at what could have been done to prevent this tragedy. We are all aware of what happened. We are all aware of how it happened. We are all aware of when it happened. But are we aware of why it was able to happen?

If we look back to the period of the early to mid 1920s in Germany, we see a country in difficult economic straights. High unemployment after the staggering defeat of World War I. The humiliation, the disgrace, the asking of why? During those terrible days, a small group of disgruntled misfits began to lament their fate. Who is to blame for our miserable situation? Of course, the one easy answer was to blame it on “The Jews” and that was their future course of action. “Blame it on the money grubbing, blood sucking Jews.” Though few in numbers, they began to act. Intimidation, bullying, vandalism, outlandish charges, and more. At the same time, the Jewish population in Germany was complacent. Why, they had been in Germany hundreds and hundreds of years. They were respected doctors, bankers, professors, artists, authors, musicians, and business owners. They were accepted by the majority. They were assimilated to the extent that over 50 percent were marrying out of the faith.

Upon hearing and reading what this fringe group of misfits were saying and doing, their reaction was one of non-action. “This is just a phase.” “This will not affect us.” “This isn’t a real problem because there are too few to make a difference.” How wrong they were! It took time, but that radical group of misfits grew. They became more active, more destructive, more violent, more anti-Jewish and more influential. Their philosophy was to take control from within. By 1938, 25 years after the start of the NAZI party, it was too late. The die was cast. We all know the results.

Unfortunately, I see the same situation recurring today in the United States of America in 2014. Currently there is a small fringe group of the followers of Mohammed that have the same intent as the early Nazis. They have taken a page directly out of the operations manual of the early NAZI party. They have a long-range plan already in operation under the direction of the Muslim Brotherhood. Each year, this group grows larger, more active, more intimidating, and more entrenched. The plan to “destroy from within” is taking place right now, but is being ignored. It will be too politically incorrect to comment, so nothing is said. The fear of retaliation, the fear of law suites, the fear being called “Anti-Islam” or “ Islamaphobic” allows them to gain more power and influence at all levels. Several cities in the U.S., such as Dearborn, Michigan, are becoming a “ no go” zone. It’s all part of the plan. Just remember, it took only 25 years in Germany from 1923 to 1938. How much time do we still have left?

Just like their mentors, the Nazis, the Muslim Brotherhood is using the same “ playbook.” They too have declared that they will “destroy from within” or “take control from within.” We must act as U.S. citizens to protect ourselves. We read or see almost daily what has happened in many European countries. The increase in Muslim population is growing at an alarming rate. One way to take control is through the birth rate, not guns, weapons, or even blood. I urge not only the “Saturday People” but also the “ Sunday People” to become alarmed, become aware, get educated and take action. Remember, the goal is to get rid of the “Saturday People” and then the “ Sunday People.” Time is not important. Creating the new Caliphate is the goal.
