Op-Ed: Europe's karmic destiny
Europe's actions, now and in the past, have led to the reaping of a horrible harvest.
In 2004 and 2005 Islamic terrorists blew up the Madrid train and London subway; 243 civilians were murdered and 2,750 were wounded.
Neither attack stopped the flow of Muslim immigrants nor staunched the politically correct thinking of European leaders about Islam.
In 2012, a terrorist shot and blew up seven people and wounded 125 civilians on the street of Liege, Belgium. That same year, in Burgess, Bulgaria, an Islamic terrorist blew up six civilians on a bus and wounded thirty more. The bus was transporting 42 Israeli tourists.
These murderous attacks did not change the immigration policies of Europe, which did not close its national borders or the borders of the EU. Anyone who arrived in Europe could still travel to any other European destination.
In early 2015, Islamic terrorists shot down and murdered 20 civilians and wounded 22 more in the infamous attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices and the kosher deli. Later that same year, Islamic terrorists murdered 130 civilians and wounded 368 more in Paris.
World leaders marched and sent condolences, but the European Union did not change its policies. It did not clean up its "no go" zones which police fear to enter, where terrorists hide out as they plan their attacks, and where Sharia law prevails, not European civil law.
In 2016, women were sexually assaulted by gangs of Muslim men in many cities in Germany, Austria, and Scandinavia. In Cologne alone, over 1,000 women were terrorized, corralled, robbed, groped, and penetrated.
Now, three months later, and despite police vigilance and an ongoing manhunt, Islamic terrorists blew up 34 civilians and wounded 83 more in Brussels, Belgium.
The groups which claimed responsibility for these terrorist attacks include: Al-Qaeda, a lone non-Muslim Jihadist, Hezbollah (our Iranian partners), and ISIS (Obama's JV team).
Of course, European Jews have been attacked as Jews everywhere in Europe during the 21st century. They have been bullied, beaten, stabbed, shot, kidnapped, tortured (remember Ilan Halimi z"l in Paris?) and blown up, mainly by Muslims.
It is all quite awful. What is going on? Here's but one idea.
Historically, Europeans mobs and European leaders either led or were passively complicit in the systematic and perpetual pogroms of Jews and thereafter in the Nazi murder of six million Jews in the Holocaust.
Jews were the non-violent and assimilated Semites.
Today, the politically correct descendants of these Europeans are facing a terrible karmic destiny. They have reaped a whirlwind of violent, hostile, and unassimilated Semites--our cousins, the Muslims, or, if you will, the Islamists. (Not all Muslims are Islamists or even Islamist Jihadists but neither are they risking their lives to stop these evil-doers).
In addition, for having aided and abetted the contemporary scapegoating of Israel (which is a new form of anti-Semitism); for having attempted to appease the Jihadists in their midst by throwing Israel as a bone to them, Europeans are now facing a thousand rape attacks and bombing jihads.
One hopes that Europeans will finally understand that this is precisely what Israel has been suffering and that appeasement is not an option.
I am not holding my breath. Here's why.
There are too many Europeans (and Americans) who prefer to see the suffering of the immigrants over and above the murderous violence of the Jihadists; the desire of immigrants to escape the hot wars in the Muslim world for the freedom and opportunities in the West over and above their almost guaranteed further radicalization and the consequent growth of intolerance, conformity, and censorship in the West; the immigrant willingness to procreate and work at low-paying jobs over and above the face masking of woman, the spread of polygamy, forced child marriage, and FGM.
America is the last country standing which represents the Western enterprise. The presidential election which is upon us will decide the fate of the world. We had better choose wisely.
