To all of my Christian Readers & Friends, I wish you a very merry Christmas. I hope you are enjoying the holiday and that yours is full of family, good food, and fun.
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, with G-d’s help, I can continue to practice my religion freely. As I’ve said so many times before on this site, even though I do not believe in Christ, I do believe that America has resisted becoming a Muslim nation thus far because of its strong Christian heritage and the fact that the majority of Americans still identify as Christians. Look to Europe, and you’ll see why every single country there is moving toward becoming an Islamic state. Yes, a good part of it is because of immigration and birthrate problems that face America as well. And because of the welfare state for these immigrants and multiple births, as well as an orthodoxy of multiculturalism. But, ultimately, it’s because Europe has lost its Christian faith and more and more are either unaffiliated or atheist. We are experiencing that problem in the States as well, but it’s to a far lesser, much slower degree. As I always say, atheists and lapsed Christians are future Muslims, ripe for the picking.
While 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). And that’s why America’s still around and as we know it, though that could change and in the long-term demographics, it looks like it will change because we’ve done nothing to stop that. Yes, sadly, we have our fair share of wimpitude and “Bending Over Syndrome” and 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, the winner of “The Voice,” and when Brad Pitt and Palestina Jolie will get married and adopt another Muslim baby.
But 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 via political correctness/multi-culturalism and a vast welfare state with uber-generosity toward illegal aliens (and again, we are doing that as well, unfortunately), I will be safe to be a Jew and will be able to freely practice my religion, G-d willing.
Yes, the majority of Americans are still Christians, but this number is shrinking and even many of those who identify as Christian are Christians in name only and don’t practice much of anything. The religion that is fast growing here–through immigration (legal and illegal), women-as-baby-factories mass births, and brainwashing conversions-is Islam.
And then there are their friends in the terrorists’ lobbies, er, “civil liberties” groups. They are also the enemy of Christmas, Christianity, and my faith of Judaism. 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 are national holidays (and they are holidays in several American school districts and factories already) is the end of days or the precursor to them. At least, it’s the end of days for you and me to be able to live in peace. And, again, we are well on our way there. 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.
While we have that strong Christian background that is an essential part of America’s fabric and history, 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–especially the leftist ones such as the Presbyterian Church of the United States of Ameica (PCUSA) and so on–have failed and their celebration of Christmas today is phony and hollow. They have maintained their status quo–or worse, engaged in this multi-cultural “interfaith” dialogue to lend legitimacy to the supporters and agents of Islamic terrorism and tyranny. And they aren’t working on sustaining their faith and its continued existence in America–which must include 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-great-grandchildren and their children be able to do the same? Will their great-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.” Your descendants may be forced to hide under hijabs and niqabs and be oppressed for their faith and religious practice, just as mine were in every single Muslim nation in which they lived throughout history, just as the dwindling Christian populations are in every single Muslim nation in which they lived and have now been forced to leave or lose their lives. Christianity is under attack all over the Muslim world. If you think the Muslims in America are different in that respect, you simply aren’t thinking at all. They are no different than their fellow co-religionists, except that they have not yet reached critical mass here. But they are getting there. And in the long run, if we do nothing, the result will be the same here as it is in the Muslim world and every European country well on its way to becoming the Muslim world.
In Bethlehem, the birthplace of Christ, three out of every four residents are Muslims and that rate is growing. The Muslim call to prayer, not prayers at the Church of the Nativity, is the loudest sound. But it is also now the loudest sound in Hamtramck, Michigan, once a stronghold of Catholics. Christians and Christianity in Bethlehem are merely a business, a customer base for Muslims to make money off of. They are a means to an end for the Muslim Palestinian Authority which rules the place and is alternately feuding with and trying to merge with HAMAS. If you think that will never be the case in America, think again. As I always tell you, you and I won’t see it. But it could very well 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 like me can celebrate our religion, our Sabbath, and our holidays, just as it enables you to celebrate Christmas today. Let’s keep America that way not just for us, but for future generations. We must do that if we want our faiths, our people, and our country to survive into the future.
Again, I wish you a wonderful holiday, full of joy, family and loved ones, friends, good health, food and drink and other 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. And most important, our common goal and aim for the survival of Western civilization, of which the Judeo-Christian ethos is the backbone.
Thank you and, again, Merry Christmas.
