To all of my Christian Readers & Friends, I wish you a very joyous and merry Christmas, full of family, good food, and fun. Enjoy your holiday.
Even though I believe very strongly in my own religion, I am thankful that, for now, America’s strong Christian tradition remains because it means that I will be able to practice my religion freely, G-d willing. As I’ve said so many times before, even though I do not believe in Christ, I do believe that America has resisted becoming a Muslim nation the way most of Europe has become and will ultimately be, because it has a strong Christian backbone and heritage. Even though Jews were an active part of every step of American history, from its founding to all of its battles (we fought in every one, including the Revolutionary War–American history is inextricably part of Jewish history and vice versa), and America is really a Judeo-Christian country, for all intents and purposes, it is a Christian nation (unless we continue to do nothing about the ever-increasing encroachment by Islam on our shores).
So long as we are a Christian nation–which continues to be based on its Judeo-Christian roots–and haven’t fallen to Islam in the way Europe has, I will be safe to be a Jew and will be able to freely practice my religion. Europeans have lost most vestiges of the Christian faith. Many Europeans are atheists a/k/a future Muslims. And for these reasons (as well as wimpitude, of which we in the States have our fair share), Islam is strong and growing there. Sadly, we are only a few decades behind Europe, as more and more Americans become less involved with their Christian faith and more concerned with the Kartrashians, what Angelina Palestina Jolie’s latest tattoo will be, and who’s guest-starring on “Glee.”
About 75% of Americans are still Christians, but this number is shrinking and even many of those who identify in the 75% are Christian in name only and don’t practice much of anything. While some try to erase references to Christmas in America–whether in commerce or in education, whether in Hollywood or in trying to decimate Nativity scenes at the local city hall lawn–I am not among them. I do not share your religion nor some of your religious beliefs, but I celebrate that you celebrate. Because the day that Ramadan or Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Al-Adha is a national holiday is the end of days. (That may be sooner than you think–in a few generations, if we continue to do nothing about Muslims seeping into our country and expanding their stronghold.) At least, it’s the end of days for you and me to be able to live in peace. And, sadly, we are heading there.
Even Christian America hasn’t had the necessary resistance to Islamic immigration that we need and the fight against Muslims’ refusal to be absorbed in American culture that is required to preserve our freedoms and our American way of life. Christian America has bent over backward–and forward–to the many unreasonable, unAmerican demands put forth on our society by Muslims. In that, many churches and Christian organizations have failed. They have maintained their status quo, but aren’t working on sustenance–and resistance to Islamic tyranny on our own shores–for future generations. That’s something to think about as you marvel over your Christmas tree and open your presents. Will your great-grandchildren and their children be able to do the same? Will their great-grandchildren be forced to say Midnight Mass in a basement hiding from the Mukhabarat (“Secret Police) and Mutaween (“Muslim religious police)? You are celebrating the birth of Christ today, but in future tomorrows, your progeny may all be forced to “celebrate” Ramadan and the Eids because we did not do enough to stop from becoming Eurabia, American Annex, or as I call it, “Islamerica.”
In Bethlehem, the birthplace of Christ, three out of every four residents are Muslims. The Muslim call to prayer, not prayers at the Church of the Nativity, is the loudest sound. Christians in Bethlehem is merely a business–a means to an end–for the Muslim Palestinian Authority which rules the place and which just merged with HAMAS. That could be the case in America in future generations as our Muslim population swells and non-Muslim marriages and birthrates continue their decline.
For me, a strong Christian America is a strong America where religious Jews can celebrate our religion, our Sabbath, and our holidays, including Chanukah, which we continue to celebrate as you celebrate your Christmas, today.
I wish you a wonderful holiday, full of joy, family and loved ones, friends, good health, sustenance, warmth, and shelter. And even though I do not celebrate your holiday, I appreciate the gift you give me every day: your readership (and comments and tips, too), your support, and your camaraderie in the marketplace of ideas.
Thank you and, again, Merry Christmas.
