Do Border Walls Work?


COMMENT: Skeptics who believe a border wall will not stop illegals from entering the United States may want to look at what’s happening in Hungary.

On the day its border fence was completed, the influx of illegals entering Hungary went down from 6,353 per day to 870 the next day. For the remainder of that month, illegal border crossings were steadily below 40 per day, officials said.

“They don’t even try,” a local border guard told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We haven’t had a single Muslim migrant in six months.” Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s pledge to stop illegals from flowing into the country appears to be a spectacular success.
Hungary’s 96-mile long, 14-foot-tall, double-line fence includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. The barrier features cameras, heat sensors, and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence, the DC report said.

Nearly every police officer in Hungary is part of a rotation to monitor the border fence at all times. Temporary military bases house the police while they do their rotation. Additionally, Hungary will train and pay more than 1,000 volunteers to deploy as “border hunters”.

Illegals who are caught are arrested and dropped off on the Serbian side of the fence. They don’t get a chance to apply for asylum unless they do so at a “transit zone” where they are held in housing containers while their cases get processed, the report said.

In September 2016, thousands of migrants streamed across the border every day as they made their way north to Austria, Germany, and Scandinavia. “It was an invasion,” Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of Asotthalom, told the Daily Caller. “Illegal immigration is a crime in a normal country. It’s not a normal thing to break into a country.”

“By mid-year, it was well beyond 100,000 people who came across”, said Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for the Hungarian government. “You should at least have the ability to handle what’s going on.” Kovacs added, “You might not like it, it’s not a nice thing, but… the only way to stop illegal border crossings is first building a fence, man it, equip it, and also, in parallel, build up your capabilities in terms of legal confines, legal circumstances to be able to handle what is coming.”

It’s no surprise the mainstream U.S. media refuses to report this story to the American public Can you imagine how support for a Southern border wall would spike?

REPLY: The people who claim Trump’s wall will not work just listen to the propaganda to defeat Trump. The entire objective is to be able to say he failed in 2020. He made a campaign promise to build the wall, and for that reason the Democrats must defeat the wall regardless of the truth. Romans built a wall between England and Scotland to prevent the Scots from raiding Roman settlements. The world’s earliest known civilization was also one of the first to build a defensive wall during the 21st century BC. The ancient Sumerian rulers constructed a massive fortified barrier to keep out the Amorites, who were a group of nomadic tribesmen who were pillaging their settlements.

The “Great Wall of Gorgon” was a 121-mile rampart that extended from the southern coast of the Caspian Sea to the Elburz Mountains in what is now Iran. It is often called the Great Wall of Alexander the Great or “Alexander’s Barrier” that prevented the barbarians from invading from the north. It was most likely constructed by the Sasanian Persians sometime around the 5th century AD, and remains one of the longest walls of antiquity.

Of course, there is China’s legendary Great Wall which stretches from the Gobi Desert to the North Korean border. It was constructed on the fortifications that began during in the 3rd century BC, and it was intended to keep the Mongols out. The completed wall was once the largest manmade object in the world. The Mongol leader Altan Khan bypassed the wall and raided Beijing in 1550.

Naturally, we should not forget the Berlin Wall, modern history’s most infamous wall, which was erected in 1961 to keep people in rather than out. More than 100 people were eventually killed while trying to escape through the maze of 12-foot walls, guard towers, and electrified fences. It stood for almost 29 years before East German authorities finally opened it on November 9th, 1989.

There are many examples of walls throughout history and the world.

Notre Dame Central Cathedral is Lost….


A horrific historic and cultural loss. The 850 year old architectural masterpiece is a central monument to the Catholic faith. A spokesman said the entire wooden frame of the cathedral has come down, and the vault of the edifice could be threatened too. ‘Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,’ Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot told French media.

The 12th-century cathedral is home to incalculable works of art and is one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions. Pictures showed enormous plumes of smoke billowing into the city’s skyline and flames engulfing large sections of the historic building as firefighters struggled to contain the inferno.

According to French newspaper Le Monde, the fire broke out in the attic of the monument before spreading across the roof. Officials in Paris said the fire could be linked to restoration works as the peak of the church is currently undergoing a 6 million-euro ($6.8 million) renovation project.

The cathedral is still ablaze during the night in Paris.  [More images here]

If Our House Be On Fire


 by Tabitha Korol

The Somalian pirates have once again sailed into North American waters.  But instead of kidnapping coastal dwellers for slavery or taking bounty to enhance their wealth, from the 16th century onwards (and again in the 2000s), they are here to continue the process of taking land, America from Americans for Islam and Israel from the Jews for the self-proclaimed “Palestinians.”  For centuries, the legacy of Muhammad’s raids  has been the acquisition of land and booty/wealth (Maal-e-Ghanimat), gizya (extortion/tax) from the conquered people, and modern-day welfare, such as the annual £25,000 ($33,009) received by Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary in Britain, who urges other “jihad seekers” do the same.

Salafi scholar Abu Ishak al Huweini lamented, “If only we can conduct a jihadist invasion at least once a year or, if possible, twice or three times, then many people on Earth would become Muslim.” He added that if they could not confiscate the wealth, they would kill the men and kidnap and enslave their women and children.  American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki instructed that the disbelievers’ property is never rightfully theirs, and may be forcefully “retaken” for Islam, a belief system that supports the Islamic right to anything they want – Europe, America, and Israel, home to the Jews for more than 3,000 years.  Islamists continue to disregard the Jewish kingdoms, sovereign Jewish state, and continuous Jewish presence in the land, Biblically documented and archaeologically verified.

It was therefore not surprising, except to those who failed to notice the sharia-compliant hijab and oath of office sworn to Allah on the Qur’an, that Somalian-born Ilhan Omar (D-MN) can so boldly deny Israel’s historic and legal rights to exist.  And if she can make headway in Congress while also undermining the American government and people’s inalienable rights, so much the better.   Her recent proposal, bound to be superseded by yet another jab before this goes to print, was, “We must acknowledge that [Israel] is also the historical homeland of Palestinians.”  That is not the case.  There is absolutely no evidence of a Palestinian history before 1967 AD!  Those who assumed this false identity were the Egyptian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian squatters who went in search of work in the flourishing Israel and who were ill-advised to vacate the land by the invading Arab armies, expecting to return after the Jews were annihilated.  They were to be disappointed.  Weakened and isolated as pawns in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, they began an unceasing political, psychological, and propagandist war of conquest in the court of world opinion.  While such attempts at land acquisition may differ from country to country – from Africa, India and the Middle East, to Europe, Australasia and America – let us not delude ourselves into thinking they’ve suddenly amended their 1400-year-old ideology.  They have not.

The Four Stages of Islamic conquest have been delineated, and it might be prudent to take a moment to review them now, as each stage reveals the clear pattern of their strategy.  The list unmistakably shows that we Americans are deeply entrenched in Stage #2, identified as the Consolidation of Power, including, for our purposes here, revisionist efforts to Islamize history – with a foothold into Stage #3.

Ilhan Omar has been dedicated to criticizing Israel and attempting to inspire compassion for Palestinians who, she suggests, are suffering the same “inhumanity and suffering” seen in the Somalian civil war.  Certainly not, as those “unspeakable horrors” are Muslim against Muslim.   Palestinians have eschewed peace, consistently rebuffing Israel’s every offer of permanent peace, even when they were offered 97% of the land they wanted.  Rather, they bind their children in explosives, teach their children to hurl missiles and incendiary balloons, and wield a sword for beheading, instead of engaging in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness enjoyed by Israelis.  Palestinian suffering is self-imposed.

Islam is responsible for 34,751 terrorist attacks since 9/11, and 25 attacks (149 killed) in 12 countries during one week in March, 2019 alone.  There is not a shred of evidence that Palestinians could live peacefully next to Israel, since their children are immersed and engaged in jihad beginning with their toddlerhood.

Omar further rued, “Without a state, the Palestinian people live in a state of permanent refugeehood and displacement,” yet it is their own brethren and leadership who placed and kept them in refugee status for Western sympathy, they who have refused statehood and peace, they who continue to wage war against Israel, they who sorely mistreat even their own, particularly girls and women.  They show no sign of interest in reverting to democracy where even their own people might live harmoniously.  The threat against regional peace comes from those who carry out the will of Allah and Mohammed, as well as from the diminutive, ungracious and hostile Omar, who thinks nothing of denigrating the President of the one country that granted her refuge and comfort, America.  And so we have Stage #3: Open War with Leadership and Culture, which reflects on the combined efforts of Islamists and the left.

The characteristics of Stage 3 are open violence to impose sharia and associated cultural restrictions; rejection of the host government; subjugation of other religions and customs.  Some are already in effect:

  • Intentional efforts to undermine the host government and culture.  Academia continues Islamic teaching/antisemitism, removing our history, students whitewashed.  Government positions infiltrated; oath-taking changes; deliberate acts to change our system of representation, to pack the supreme court, to encourage alien invasion to ensure an election outcome; to demoralize our president’s efforts to keep the country safe; to destroy our energy independence; to increase taxation and restrictions against companies and individuals.  Work to disarm and diminish our population, by birth control, deteriorating healthcare, and euthanasia.
  • Acts of barbarity to intimidate citizens and foster fear and submission. Conservatives shut down and attacked for political differences, MAGA hats; physical attacks against Jews.  Violence to property – stores,  historic monuments, burning cars.
  • Open and covert efforts to cause economic collapse of the society. School personnel and Muslim Student Associations (MSA) engaged in boycotts against Israel; working to increase taxes and regulations; the economically devastating Green New Deal.  Flooding our nation with dependent non-productive aliens; continued socialized medicine.
  • All opposition is challenged and either eradicated or silenced.  The FBI’s manuals purged of all Islamic references, thwarting police forces; information withheld by the media; visiting speakers denied on campuses; Islamic tea party outreaches to convince their religions are alike.
  • Rejection and defiance of host society secular laws or culture. Pockets of Muslim residents ruled by shari’a; demanding food and prayer accommodations to shari’a.
  • Destruction of churches, synagogues and other non-Muslim institutions. Desecration of synagogues and churches; defilement of cemetery headstones.  Historic monuments toppled.
  • Women are restricted further in accordance with Shari’a law. Muslim patrol cars now evident on the streets in some cities, to ensure that shari’a is followed, including women’s dress.

Stage #3 also includes removing influential personalities from the media (Glenn Beck, Judge Jeanine Pirro).  Islamic militias formed for widespread ethnic cleansing; large groups of able-bodied men assembled in any of the more than 2,000 mosques, of which 80% (1700) are known to be preaching hate and violence against Jews, serving as jihadist recruitment and training centers – and as armories.  Also listed are large-scale population destruction, assassinations, bombings; usurpation of government’s political power, imposition of shari’a, mass execution of Muslim intellectuals who do not support Islamization.

Thomas Jefferson, the first to encounter the Somalian pirates, said, “It is our duty still to endeavor to avoid war.  But if it shall actually take pace, no matter by whom brought on, we must defend ourselves.  If our house be on fire, without inquiring whether it was fired from within or without, we must try to extinguish it.”

Later generations will not thank us for letting the fire take hold.

Horror in Milan – 51 Students Rescued After Kidnapping by Senegalese Migrant…


A crazed Senegalese migrant kidnapped a bus loaded with 51 middle-school-aged students near Milan Italy.  The suspect attempted to burn the bus with the students inside, but fortunately police were able to rescue the children as the fire started.

One of the children was able to hide their cell phone and call for help.  An alarming story and rescue that was caught on video by a passing motorist.

(Via Daily Mail)  A Senegalese man abducted 51 children when he hijacked an Italian school bus and set the vehicle alight in a protest over migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.

Ousseynou Sy, originally Senegalese but with Italian citizenship, stopped the bus he was driving, with two classes of high school students on board.

He was said to have ordered the children’s hands to be bound and threatened to kill them and himself during the drive, before setting the vehicle on fire when he was stopped by a police blockade today.

Officers broke the glass in the back door of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said.

As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24. (read more)

The Deceiver’s Disciple,


by Tabitha Korol

Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands could die. – Don Boys, Ph.D.

The mission of the jihadi/jihada (one who engages in holy “war with non-Muslims to establish the religion”) is to bring Islamic law, sharia, to the world, whether through peaceful or violent means, and Ilhan Omar has dutifully begun her vocation for Allah, who is described in the Quran as the greatest deceiver of them allIt goes on to say that ALL deception belongs completely to Allah, that Allah actually raises wicked individuals to deceive and scheme, and commands people to do evil so that he may then have reason to destroy them – for Islamic supremacy.  Mohammed led by example when he broke promises and treaties with three Jewish tribes, Banu Qaynuqa (624), Banu Nadir (625) and Banu Qurayza (627), and subsequently beheaded all the men, captured and enslaved the women and children, and enriched himself and his troops with the towns’ bounties.  We must therefore recognize that Omar is mandated by religious doctrine to emulate Mohammed’s deception, using any means possible against her victims to advance the Islamic ideology.  “When hate crimes against [her] and [her] followers don’t exist, they have to be invented,” to deflect attention from the jihadi onto the Muslims as victims.

Since her installation as a member of Congress, Omar has repeatedly censured Israel and Israeli and American Jews, making antisemitism acceptable and freely spoken by the re-awakening antisemitic community.  Her allegations are a stealth technique of projection, as when the subject attributes his own unpleasant traits, impulses or ideas to another.  For instance, Omar accuses Israelis of “abuse against women,” “apartheid” and “occupation,” distinctly Muslim deeds.  She accuses Jews of dual loyalty to Israel, but not people of, say, the Palestinian territories, Somalia, Iran, Central and South America, who might donate their earnings to provide financial assistance to their homelands.  Lest we forget, these three Muslim lands are known supporters of terrorism, whereas Israel is known to be the only democratic country in the Middle East, one of America’s most steadfast allies, and one that provides services that benefit people throughout the world – and this is the one she denigrates and boycotts.  There can be no other valid reason except the centuries-nurtured visceral hate.

Ilhan Omar’s hostility is clearly defined by Islamic law as against Judaism, a religion that follows the Torah and Commandments for morality over evil.  When Mohammed’s new religion was rejected by Jews and Christians for such pagan superstitions as circling the Ka’bah, and for its violent proselytizing, to name just two reasons, he turned their prayer direction to Mecca and against those who rebuked him, slaughtering thousands and seizing their treasure.  It is this resentment that was instilled into Mohammed’s followers.  They are removed from every aspect of individual freedom and bound to carry his millstone of hate and envy.

And here is the tactic.  While Omar attempts to delegitimize the Jewish community’s allegiance to America, and her coreligionists work to delegitimize the Jewish bond to Israel (even to destroying holy relics dating back 3,000 years), she hides her own history and failings, that she will never assimilate, is not to be trusted, and will work to delegitimize our Constitution with sharia.

“Ultimately we [Muslims] can never be fully citizens of this country…because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.” – Ihsan Bagby, leader of CAIR-KY, president of its board and Islamic Studies professor at the University of Kentucky, 1991.

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.” – Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, 2013.

Islam’s blame/shame culture is why this jihada will never admit to and apologize for her actions. Omar scarcely walks back her numerous canards when she immediately restates her free speech prerogatives to criticize Israel’s policies, using old antisemitic myths about Jews and money, as though Islam’s oil wealth has had no influence on our western banking, the media, our lower grades and universities, and indeed the entire United Nations.  Her vague apologies have never actually acknowledged her wrongdoing or responsibility, and she would obviously run a repeat performance.  She has also used the infamous Muslim Brotherhood maneuver, inserting the shrewd, devious warning that she must never be condemned “for being Muslim,” the Islamophobic threat intended to intimidate any who would contest her word.  She is not naïve.  Highly adept in her cunning, she is guilty of a fervent allegiance to Islam that supersedes any loyalty to America and, regrettably, she appears to have completely hoodwinked the inexcusably credulous Nancy Pelosi.

“Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and programme, … regardless of … which nation is undermined in the process of the establishment of an ideological Islamic State.”  – Abul Maududi, one of the two most widely read and respected Islamic thinkers of the 20th Century. “

“The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.” – Islamic Law and Constitution, pg. 262)

In the late 18th century, the Muslim Ambassador Adja explained that the Quran  gives Muslims the right and duty to make war against all, make slaves of prisoners, and that every Musselman who is slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.   The Wahhabi-type Muslim radicals, named for the Barbary Pirates from the Barbary Coast of North Africa, waged terrorist attacks through two decades.  After a four-year war, a treaty was signed to end the aggression in 1805.

Yesterday’s Islamic Barbary pirates are today’s Islamic Somalian pirates from the same region, with the same pronouncements of jihad against the West.  It now includes those who participate in “large scale mass migrations [that] become invasions,” known as hijrah. It overtook the Middle East, is prevalent through much of Europe, and is with us now, which is why the Arab countries refuse to take in their own refugees.  Aided by the Left, the goal is to overtax the economy, tear down the wealthiest nations, redraw demographics and culture, and secure positions where they can work to overturn our civility and government.

Ilhan Omar, a Somalian Muslim, took her oath of office on the Quran, as did Rashida Tlaib, the “Palestinian” who wrapped herself in the Palestinian flag.  In so doing, they pledged their allegiance not to the United States of America, but to Allah.  Additionally, Omar is suspected of having ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood (MB), and herein lies the projection connection.   While she accuses Jews of duplicity, we must always reinterpret what the devotee of Islam says, particularly one who has been a keynote speaker for the IRUSA (Islamic Relief USA), the largest, global, Muslim fundraising group with terrorist ties, and CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations), listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist fundraising operation in US history.  As MB affiliates, these women seem to be working to support subversive factions aligned to destroy America and Western civilization.

And while it was unexpected to hear her recent criticism of President Obama, considering his affection for Islam, and for other “flawed” presidents, Omar may be promoting herself and the new Progressives as the real “hope and change.”  It may have been an unguarded moment when she expressed disdain for everything American, or perhaps she hopes to prepare the directionless youth, who’ve been deprived of their identity, religion, history, and reason, to submit to governance by another – Allah.

Making Islamophobia a Crime


The APPG (All Party Parliamentary Group) some members of the UK Parliament who have issued a document that defines Islamophobia. Their goal is to make “Islamophobia” a crime. Islam is defined as whatever Muslims want it to be.

The APPG claims free speech will not be affected as long as the speaker in question does not cause harm. “Harm” is defined as anything that offends a Muslim, even if it is a fact.

Although the document is only a committee report, many British city councils are implementing the report as law. This is totalitarianism. This is Islam.

A Bridge Too Far*


by Tabitha Korol

It was brought to my attention that Westmount Temple Emanu-el Beth Shalom in Montreal hosted a Muslim-Awareness Interfaith Shabbat Dinner on January 25, 2019, to pay homage to the six dead and nineteen wounded from a lone attack on a Montreal mosque two years previously.  Such well-meaning, but naïve, efforts were hijacked by Muslim apologists to promote their false victimhood status to garner sympathy from others.

One might wonder why there was no outreach from Jews or Muslims for the desecration attack in March 2018 on a synagogue in Thornhill, and no homage paid for the October, 2018 massacre of eleven congregants of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, inasmuch as Canada and the US are connected in many ways.  Neither was there any form of condolence or apology offered when a small Canadian Arab newspaper, Al Saraha, published an antisemitic article that posited why Hitler killed the Jews, stated that the number of six million Jews killed during the Holocaust was severely inflated, and asserted that Jews are to blame for Germany’s economic collapse, sexuality and promiscuity.

Inasmuch as the Jewish-Muslim Interfaith Dinner so closely preceded Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day designated to confront the hatred and crimes against the Jewish people, it begs the question as to why that was not incorporated into the outreach, except that Muslims do not grant victimhood status to others, and they continue to deny the Holocaust as the systematic murder of six million Jews.   Our FBI records show that Jews still experience the greatest number, by far, of attacks and assaults, yet nothing was done to honor those victims and awaken the attendees to the dire situation of antisemitism that is once again upon us.

It is pertinent to include herewith a few unpalatable facts.  Muslims have killed 669 million people over 1400 years, a number quite astounding, but correct.  Those who were not killed – the Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and others – were forced into captivity and conversion.  They became the ancestors of today’s 1.6 billion Muslims, including the masses who are now committing unspeakable crimes in Sweden, Germany, France, England – 29 countries worldwide.

Arab-Islamic attacks on Jews began with the Battle of Khaybar in 628 AD, against Christians with raids into Byzantine land in 630, and rapidly engulfed the non-Arab people of North Africa, Spain, Persia, and beyond.  In 1801, the Barbary pirates attacked American shipping, and in 2000, the USS Cole. The World Trade Center was attacked twice, in 1973 and 2001, followed by group bombings, shootings, stabbings, and property damage – hate crimes.  However, in a country the size of America, the imams have informed their jihadis that eventual conquest must be achieved by other means – through civilizational or stealth jihad.  Hence, our government now has an inordinate number of Muslims in office.   Unashamedly antisemitic and anti-American, they are working to change our laws to be increasingly socialist and then sharia compliant.

The January gathering at the Canadian temple was labelled an interfaith “dialogue,” a word that means exchange and discussion, yet only the Muslim perspective was presented.  There were two Muslim speakers, both practiced in taqiyyah for dealing with westerners, and not balanced by two western speakers experienced with this Islamic psychological technique.  This was, therefore, a one-sided presentation, a “monologue,” with no attempt at dialogue or mutuality.  The rabbis added that discussion was limited to make their guests “comfortable.”  They provided a comfort zone for the very people who invariably commit the crimes and unceasingly advocate hate and destruction for Israel.

There were no questions about the Koranic directives to kill the infidel, and nothing about their practice of jihad – how they send their children to ignite precious Israeli land, scorching 9,000 acres of land and the wildlife over a six-month period; to stabbing citizens on the streets of Israel, Europe and America; to ramming cars into groups of pedestrians – or how they pay the families for martyring their own sons in the interest of killing Jewish people.  The speakers were permitted to lie and praise their religion without taking responsibility for the crimes they commit.  The talk of “bridge building” is never clarified for purpose or destination.

One of the speakers was Egah Lotayef, known to be pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas, anti-Israel, anti-Zionist – simply put, an antisemite, and one of many McGill professors who signed a petition for BDS against Israel and Israeli academic institutions.  He took part in the deceptively named “Freedom Flotilla to Gaza” that circumvented the established route only to create a “situation” for Israel.  The little humanitarian aid contained on the flotilla was camouflage for the armed activists who had come in the hope of gaining international sympathy by provoking the IDF into using excessive force.  The self-control of the IDF was to disappoint them.

No bridge builder he, this proponent of boycott-divestment-sanctions against Israel.  BDS is designed to damage Israel socially, economically, religiously and intellectually, in order to create a Palestinian tie to the land none exists.  He belongs to a terrorist-affiliated group that speaks at such occasions, in an attempt to lure the audiences into accepting the Islamic narrative and convince them that Islam is benign and Israel the oppressor.  The group continually accuses Israel of crimes committed by the Palestinians, another psychological war technique known as “transference” or “projection.”  The aim is constant: to turn the world against the Jewish State and to promote her extinction.

The rabbis’ form letter issued to the public said they “disagreed passionately,” but they said nothing!  And with what did they disagree?  If it was with the speakers’ opinions about Israel and the Jews, they failed the Jewish community.  I would be interested in knowing the conclusions drawn when the evening was over, what the attending Jews think they learned from the one-sided engagement.  I have attended three such “interfaith meetings,” and have read of others, none of which seemed to be worthy of squandering one’s time.  They invariably take place in synagogues and churches that allow the Muslim voice to be heard, but inhibit the congregants from speaking – they sit like the bobblehead dolls, taking everything in.   Questions from the audience are usually submitted on slips of paper so that they may be pre-screened, and the probing or unnerving questions are disregarded and never read “due to time constraints.”

Perhaps we might offer the benefit of doubt.  Perhaps these rabbis knew nothing of the speakers before honoring their request for the “program” (a word also defined as “manipulate”), but ignorance is also a betrayal of one’s own people, ancestors and progeny.  Regardless of intent, their congregation was duped into hearing the fabricated Islamic storyline without dispute or defense.  All Jews and Christians alike must be informed of Islam’s ongoing war against the west, to become actively involved in fighting the hatred against Jews, Christians, Israel and America, before we follow the paths of history.  It has long been time for an outreach to be done by informed Jews and Christians to their underinformed co-religionists.  We did not choose this war, but we have to acknowledge that it exists – and It is here.

*A bridge too far:  that the goal or mission described will not happen, or will wind up being unsuccessful, perhaps with even a disproportionate amount of unwanted consequences.
