Merry Christmas to all of my Christian readers & friends. I wish you a very joyous and merry Christmas with family, friends, and everything that you wish for. I hope you are enjoying the holiday.
Even though I believe very strongly in my own religion and I am not a Christian, I am thankful that, for now, America’s strong Christian tradition remains. With G-d’s* help, it is the only thing that keeps us from becoming a Muslim nation. Like you, I want to continue to practice my religion freely and for that to be the case for my fellow co-religionists and yours. 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. That is and has always been the backbone and at the forefront of America’s traditional values. People like Miley Cyrus and the supporters of Hezbollah in Dearbornistan have one thing in common: they do not go to church and they do not believe in our common Judeo-Christian values, traditions, and heritage.
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 of its population is either unaffiliated or atheist. You see it in Great Britain. You see it throughout Scandinavia, where marriage and other sacraments of the Church and of Judeo-Christian values are anathema. Those are the same countries that have willingly allowed themselves to become ravaged by Muslim immigration and the corresponding hate. There is a reason Malmo, Sweden is no longer welcoming to Jews and the Israeli Davis Cup Tennis Team cannot compete there in front of a live audience, lest they be blown up.
And if you think Europe is unique, it is not. We are no different, just a decade or two behind, except for America’s still strong Christian faith. Yes, more and more Americans are leaving Christianity or are becoming lapsed in their observance of it. And devout Muslims are growing in numbers in our midst. But we are still a Christian nation by far, with well more than half of America celebrating Christmas today. Yes, we are experiencing the same religious decline as in Europe, 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. Just look at all the former hippies and feminists who choose this cult (Islam) that imprisons the mind and the body, while they spent their lives denouncing Christians and Jews and fighting Nativity displays in the courts and wishes of “Merry Christmas” in the major retailers.
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 has always been a Judeo-Christian country, those of us who are realists know it is really and has always been a Christian nation (unless we continue to do nothing about the ever-increasing encroachment by Islam on our shores). Most of the Founding Fathers were Christians, as were most of the revolutionaries who fought off the British. Yes, there were exceptions who came pretty close to atheism (such as Thomas Jefferson), but for the most part, they were Christians (and had some Jewish help–see Haym Solomon and so on). And that’s why America’s still around and as we know it–because of its Christian heritage.
That could change and in the long-term demographics, it looks like it will change because we’ve done nothing to stop that. America as we know it–and Christmas as you know it–may not be around (to the extent that they are now) in several generations. You and I won’t see it, but your great-great-great-grandchildren and theirs may. Look at what has happened to Christians in the birthplace of your religion: the Middle East. They aren’t under siege–that was yesterday. Today, they are no longer there, unless you count their scant and meager presence. They’ve been forced out and have left in droves to the West and other locals, if they haven’t been killed off first. Bethlehem, Jesus’ birthplace, is majority Muslim–vast majority Muslim. And, no, contrary to Palestinian terrorist-in-chief Mahmoud Abbas a/k/a Abu Mazen’s claim, Jesus was NOT a Palestinian. He was a Jew. Never forget that.
Yes, today, more and more Americans are obsessed with Us Magazine and TMZ and what celebrities are wearing and with whom they are sleeping. Many more Americans of Christian heritage can name all of the members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan than can name Jesus’ apostles.
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. In the end, it is His (G-d’s) will, but with our help. G-d helps those who help themselves and we must help ourselves in this regard.
It’s a problem that many of those who identify as Christian in America (and the rest of the West) 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. That’s got to change.
While some see my fellow co-religionists in Judaism as anti-Christian, I assure you we are not. Those who oppose your holiday displays and religious observances are not devout Jews. We who believe strongly in our faith have no issue with yours. We know that the enemies of Christmas and Christianity are also the enemies of 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.
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 union factories–thanks, unions!–around the country already) is the end of days or the precursor to them for our America where you and I are free to practice our Judeo-Christian holidays and religious observances. 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. Like I said, that day 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–primarily the left-leaning, “progressive” portion of it–has bent over backward (and forward) to the many unreasonable, un-American, unconstitional demands put forth on our society by Muslims.
In that respect, many churches and Christian organizations–especially the leftist ones such as the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America (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 gaze happily at your Christmas tree while you and your family open presents (and are hopefully lucky enough to have presents in this age of ObamaCare insurance payment hikes). 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 (and as they had to do in the Communist Soviet Union), 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. And as America inches closer to the Muslim world, it will come under attack on our shores more and more. If you think ACLU lawsuits over Creches are bad, just wait. And 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 part of the Muslim world.
Don’t be fooled by the leadership in the Palestinian Authority and its pseudo-embrace of the Christmas tourism in Bethlehem. They need the money, and business is business. Quietly, they–the Palestinian Muslims who dominate Bethlehem and the rest of the Muslim world sneer at all the pilgrims who’ve come to mark the Christmas holiday . . . all while they count the cash they’ve meet from selling trinkets to the visiting Christians. 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. More than three out of every four Bethlehem 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. And it is not just a call to prayer, it is a call to war. They are at war with all of us. Like humans amidst the sounds of a dog whistle, we just don’t hear it.
And that call to prayer isn’t just the loudest sound on the other side of the world in Bethlehem, it is also now the loudest sound in Hamtramck, Michigan, once a stronghold of Catholics. It is also the loudest sound in Canton, Michigan. And Dearbornistan and Dearbornistan Heights, and a growing number of American cities and towns as the virus spreads.
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 and a Merry Christmas overflowing with 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.
And, remember, we are all still here and allowed to practice our faiths freely because of G-d. May He bless us all.
Thank you and, again, Merry Christmas.
