I
In the early autumn, when the pomegranates ripen, I embark for the ruins of the destroyed Palestinian village of Saffurie. The native city of Mary’s mother, it still guards the Crusader church of St Anne. This old village was an important city some two thousand years ago, when, under name of Sepphoris, it refused to join the Jewish Zealots, and remained loyal to the Empire. It provided a comfortable home to the man who reinvented Judaism after its collapse, Rabbi Judah the Prince, and for many Christian sages and Roman nobles. It survived all vagaries of time, until in 1948 it was stormed by the Israeli army and destroyed. Its villagers became refugees and went to refugee camps or to nearby Nazareth. The groves of the dead village remain hidden in the valleys, bringing full, off-round, heavy and bursting pomegranates each year, but there is nobody left to pick the fruit. People from the Jewish settlement built next to the ruins are indifferent to the fate of pomegranates and of the peasants who planted them. In this kingdom of desolation amid bountiful red-fruit-laden trees, there is also a carefully laid Roman floor mosaic sometimes called the Mona Lisa of Galilee. Its thousands of small stones of various shades form a proud elongated face with a straight nose, high hairdo and full lips and frame it with acanthus leaves.

This mosaic always reminds me of our beautiful world, this delightful mosaic of small towns, green meadows, civilised megapolises, castles and cottages, rivers and streams, churches and mosques. Each piece of the mosaic is fine, precious and perfect.

I have seen lots of them and I love them all: the rocky, low-lying islands in the lucid and transparent Baltic where yellowhaired kids wave from the pier to passing boats; La France Profonde of Conque, a tiny hamlet in the Massif Central on the old pilgrim road to St Jacques, where a narrow chatty river skirts the hill, the slated roofs, and streets paved a thousand years ago; domes of Russian churches in the high grass on Oka River, where girls in flowery shawls listen to a melody; pretty voices of Suzhou girls reverberate in the temple courtyard among canals criss-crossing South China; baroque houses of Trinidad tobacco factors and the proud bearing of Cubans dancing on its streets; the superb bodies of tattooed Masai around a bonfire at Serengeti savanna. This world is lovely and its folks are very good.

This beautiful and intricate set-up is threatened by the forthcoming hostilities, as this Third World War is not only against the Third World. This war started even before the first bomb fell on the rocky ground of Afghanistan. A million new refugees are on the road, creating great commotion and unsettling Asia. Without a doubt, sooner or later the refugee wave will hit Europe. Hundreds of thousands of refugees already are on the move towards Europe and Russia. One can understand them: as the US bombed their homes, the defenceless population has no choice but to flee the target areas. No border controls will be able to withstand their hectic push. Pakistan will be first, but not last. As the US and Britain plan to turn their Crusade into a long war ‘against terror’, there will be more and more refugees, until, eventually, the fragile social fabric of Europe will crumble and collapse. Europe will be overrun, as was Roman Empire in its day, and it will face a stark choice: establish a system of apartheid and discrimination, or lose its identity.

Will Europe be an incidental victim of American fury, like an innocent bystander in a Western shoot-out? It appears to me that Europe is one of the real targets of the forthcoming offensive. It is not what the ordinary people of the United States wish, but they are not being asked. The new ruling elites of the US and their partners and agents overseas have put the destruction of prosperous, independent and cohesive Europe on their wish list. This desire has a practical short-term reason: Europe is a competitor to America, it is too independent, it has established its own monetary unit that can displace the dollar. Europe supports a more evenly-balanced policy in Palestine. Europe is too egalitarian: in New York, I saw a lift boy, an immigrant from devastated Panama, who actually lives in the elevator. You would not find such things in Europe, as Europe is not yet Mammonized.

II
The new ruling elites do not care much for Christ or Muhammad, it is true, but they have a lot of religious feeling towards another old Deity, Mammon. This ancient god of greed was much loved by the Pharisees, some two millennia back, as we learn from the Gospel. Jesus told them: you can not serve both God and Mammon. But Pharisees sneered at him, because they loved money.

This religion has been rejected by Christians. Love of Mammon is Avarice, one of the Mortal Sins; it was condemned by Christians and Muslims alike. But it did not vanish completely.

Two thousand years later, a grandson of the Trier Rabbi, Karl Marx, came to a revolutionary conclusion: the faith of Mammon, this ‘week-day religion of Jews’, in his words, became the real religion of the American elites. Marx approvingly quoted a Colonel Hamilton: “Mammon is Yankee’s idol; they worship it not only with their lips, but with all strength of their body and soul. In their eyes, the earth is but a stock exchange, and they are convinced that they do not have other purpose on earth but to become richer than their neighbours”. Marx concluded, “The practical domination of the Jewish spirit over the Christian world has achieved in North America its unambiguous, complete expression”. This victorious Jewish spirit, for Marx, was based on ‘greed and egoism, its confession was business, it’s god — Money’.

ORDER IT NOW

These words of Karl Marx had a deep spiritual meaning overlooked by the Marxists. Until our days, the religious features of the Creed of Greed were not expressed. There were capitalists who thought of their own interest and promoted the common good, as Adam Smith preached. Things changed with advent of Neo-Liberalism. Milton Friedman manifested outing of Mammonites, adepts of the new/old faith. They differ from ordinary greedy folks, as they elevate Greed to the level of the jealous God that does not suffer other gods.

The traditional wealthy men would not dream of destroying their society. They cared about their land and community. They wanted to be the first among their own kind. They still considered themselves ‘shepherds of men’. It is true that shepherds eat sheep, but they would not sell the whole lot to the butcher just because the price is right. The Mammonites see such consideration as a betrayal of Mammon.

As Robert McChesney wrote in his Introduction to Noam Chomsky’s Profit over People, ‘They demand a religious faith in the infallibility of the unregulated market’, in other words, a faith of egoism and greed unlimited. They are devoid of compassion to the people they live amongst, they do not see the local people as ‘their own kind’. If they could eliminate local folk and supplant them with poor immigrants to optimise their profits, they would do it, as their brothers did in Palestine.

The Mammonites do not give a damn for the people of America, but use them as their tool to achieve world domination. Their ideal picture of the world is archaic, or futuristic: they dream of a world of slaves and masters. In order to achieve it, the Mammonites strive to destroy the cohesion of social and national units. As long as people stay on their land, speak their tongue, live among their own kith and kin, drink water of their rivers, worship in their churches and mosques, they can not be enslaved. But if their lands are flooded by masses of refugees, their social structure will collapse. They will lose their great advantage, the feeling of belonging together, the feeling of brotherhood, and they will become an easy prey for Mammonites.

III
Afghanis are wonderful folk, sturdy, independent, self-reliant. They are informed by their mountains, and as all highlanders, they are stubborn and conservative. Fear of American bombs would push them into the lowlands of Holland and into the cities of France, and they will unwillingly but irreversibly change the land they enter.

This process is going on for quite a while. As the global policies of the Mammonites deplete the poor countries of the Third world, pump out natural resources and incomes, support the nasty quisling rulers, destroy their nature, more and more people are forced to join the stream of refugees to Europe and the US. This threat is acutely felt in Europe.

Oriana Fallaci, a well-known Italian journalist, published in the leading Milanese newspaper, Corriere della Sera, an article bewailing the fate of Europe overrun by “Muslim hordes”. She viewed immigrants as a courtier of Romulus in Ravenna regarded the Germanic warriors. Oriana says that “Somali Muslims defaced and shitted and outraged for three months the main square of my city”, that some “children of Allah” urinated on the walls of the Cathedral, that they had mattresses inside the tent “to sleep and fuck on” and poisoned the square with the smell and smoke of their cooking. Oriana goes on to say that Florence, “once the capital of art and culture and beauty” is “wounded and humiliated” by “arrogant Albanians, Sudanese, Bengalese, Tunisians, Algerians, Pakistanis and Nigerians” who “sell drugs” and pimp whores. She calls for the support of the American-led Crusade and contends, “If America fails, then Europe will fall [...] instead of church bells, there will be the muezzins, instead of miniskirts, chadors, instead of cognac, camel’s milk”.

Before condemning her style, let us attend the faults of her logic. Ms Fallaci, an experienced and not too young journalist sees in America a possible protection, rather than the source of her, and Florence’s, trouble. She should be worried by the success, not by the failure of America’s offensive. If America succeeds in her wars, Oriana’s nightmare can become a reality. She does not want to notice that the refugees and immigrants are arriving in Italy because their lands were devastated by the US and its allies. She would not see Albanians if NATO had not ravaged the Balkans. She would not see Sudanese, if Clinton had not bombed the Sudan. She would not see Somalis, if Somaliland had not been ruined by Italian colonization and American intervention. She would not see Libyans if Libya would not be bombed. Neither she, nor America would see a Palestinian immigrant if the peasants of Saffurie would still be tending their pomegranate groves.

Nobody, but nobody would leave his own land with its unique nature, lifestyle, friends and relatives, holy places and fathers’ graves for the dubious pleasure of camping by the walls of an Italian Cathedral. Like ducklings have their imprinting, men are born to love their native land. Young Telemachus compares his rocky and lean island with broad meadows and rich fields of Lacedaemon, and says to his host, ‘we have no meadow land at all, and my island rises rock-like from the sea. Yet its goat-pastures are more lovely in my sight than your fields for grazing horses’.

People migrate when their lands are ruined. The Irish would not have left the green fields of Erin for Chicago, if the English government had not starved them out. My own Russians would not come to occupy Palestine if Russia had not been ruined by the pro-American forces of Yeltsin and Chubais. For host folk, an immigration wave is a nuisance at best, a disaster at worst. It is not their fault; it is the question of numbers.

Carlos Castaneda joined an Indian tribe and learned a lot of their ways. I am sure the tribe learned something from Carlos Castaneda. Now imagine that thousand wonderful guys and gals from Yale and Berkeley join the Indian tribe. The tribe would disappear; it would not be able to keep its ways.

ORDER IT NOW

While a single émigré is always welcome and adds colour to a society, mass immigration is no better than invasion. Whether immigrants come as invaders and conquerors, or as refugees, the receiving society gets a shock. If they are smart, they push local people away from interesting and important social positions and create their own subculture. If they are violent, they can take over the land by other means. If they are humble and timid, they bring down the price of labour. That is why in normal circumstances immigrants are not popular.

A good man and my friend, Miguel Martinez, who brought Oriana’s article to the attention of the English-reading audience, was justly horrified by her racism. He is right, Ms Fallaci speaks as a racist, as does Ann Coulter, this American scourge of ‘swarthy men’. But he failed to see some truth in her words. A man whose garden was overrun by buffaloes does not notice the hunter who rushes the herds his way and blames the innocent animals. He is mistaken: the blame rests with the hunter — but that does not mean the buffaloes did not ruin the garden.

Mass immigration is painful for immigrant and host alike. But it is not painful for the Mammonites. They actually like immigration, as it lowers the price of labour. A leading Mammonite magazine is the British weekly, the Economist. Their editorial called even before the ‘new Pearl Harbour’ for an increased intake of immigrants from the Third World. The most dynamic, best qualified people from Africa, Asia and South America could be useful for Britain, Europe and the US, wrote the Economist. They would push down the salaries of European workers and increase profits for entrepreneurs. As a side profit, the outflow of the dynamic element weakens the donor societies and makes them an easy prey for hostile takeover. It is an improved version of slave trade, as what could be better than willing slaves competing to board a slave ship. Naturally, the pre-condition for such an intake was not articulated in the editorial: the countries of the Third World must be devastated and ruined.

Mammonites need immigrants for their own sake, as well. A cohesive and healthy society rejects men of greed instinctively, as greed is a socially destructive drive. In a healthy society, Mammonites would remain pariahs. Immigration destroys cohesiveness of the host society. Mammonites do not like their society being cohesive, they prefer it thinnish and liquescent, thus easier to drink it up. That is why Mammonites support immigration. Immigrants conceive them as their natural allies and fail to comprehend that the Mammonites like them as vampires like fresh blood. Because of this lack of understanding, immigrants support with their votes the Mammonite power of Tony Blair and the New York Democrats. It is the Mammonites, who should be on the receiving end of Oriana’s diatribes, not the innocent immigrants on the streets and squares of Europe.

A Mammonite senator for California, Diane Feinstein, imports more and more poor Mexicans into her state. They give her the vote, stay out of politics for many years, they agree to work for less, they undermine organised labour. Ordinary Californians live worse, but she does not care. Some people consider her a Zionist by virtue of her support for Israel.

However, it would be a mistake to call her a Zionist. Historically, Zionists felt that man needs roots. They considered the easy mobility of Jews to be a symptom of deficiency. They wanted to provide the rootless Jews with roots in the Holy Land. Mammonites do not understand who needs roots. They want to uproot everybody. Zionists felt that Mammonite way of life is wrong. Mammonites of all backgrounds adopted the way of life discarded by Zionists.

The Zionists were wrong as they did not understand that without Palestinians they can not achieve their goal of striking root in the soil of Palestine. They were wrong, as a person of Jewish origin can strike his root anywhere, not only in Palestine. A Jew can become an American, English, Russian as well as Palestinian. It calls for identification with his countrymen, for supreme concern with his land. Every land is a Promised Land to the man who loves it. People who force America to send away billions of dollars to Israel instead of providing for America’s poor are not loyal to America. But they are not loyal to Israel, either. They admire Israel as the model of their world.

Many good men dislike Zionism, for it caused this massive destruction of the lovely land of Palestine and uprooted Palestinians. But Zionism is a local disease. Its big brother, Mammonitis, is a world-wide plague that wants to turn the world into a “Big Israel” with shopping malls and destroyed villages, settlements for the chosen few, and many refugees as a source of cheap labour. Zionists ruined the nature of Palestine, Mammonites ruin the world environment. Zionists uprooted Palestinians, Mammonites uproot all.

Zionists fight Christ. In modern Israel, St Paul and St Peter would be jailed for teaching the Gospel. Mammonites fight every faith, every conviction, Christ and Muhammad, Nationalism and Communism. The enemies of Zionism hope Mammonites will rein the Zionists in, as too-independent policy of Zionists can become an obstacle to the world-embracing plans of Mammonites. But I tell you, God tolerates the excesses of Zionists so you will notice the plans of Mammonites.

V
This is not the cry of a dyed-in-the-wool Leftie. We can live with some people of wealth, we can survive some amount of privilege. Both the Left and the Right are good and needed by society, just as the left leg and the right leg are needed for standing up. Imagine a springtime meadow in the Jerusalem mountains, a magic carpet of flowers, that calls you to recline on it. If masses swamp it, there will be no flowers left. If it is fenced away, none will enjoy it. These two tendencies: access and preservation, are the paradigms of the Left and the Right. Their correct combination allows many people to enjoy the meadow.

ORDER IT NOW

The Right is the conservative force, preserving the power of the traditional elites. They save the landscape, protect nature, uphold tradition. The Left is the moving force of society, the guarantee of its liveliness, of capacity for change, of social mobility. A society without its Left would rot; a society without its Right would collapse. The Left provides movement, the Right guarantees stability. But Mammonites create for their purposes a pseudo-Left and a pseudo-Right, and ruin real Left and Right.

One of the faults of the European ‘real’ Right was its lack of compassion and racist tendency. Their knee-jerk reflex was correct: immigrants destabilize the society. But it is not because immigrants are lesser men, as racists say. Immigrants can be wonderful folk, and still be trouble. The Dutch moved to Indonesia, and plagued the land for quite a while by their presence. They ruined Indonesia heavily. Indonesians went to Holland and troubled it back. The Brits plagued America in the heavy way: they exterminated the natives. Colonial process often leads to mutual plaguing: the Brits despoiled Ireland and were troubled by the Irish.

Racism is wrong, as it claims that some groups of men are inherently better or worse than others. Everybody is wonderful: Zulu and British, Russian and Chechen, Palestinian and French, Pakistani and Turk, while on home ground. On others’ land, these good people become a nuisance. In the days of European imperialism and colonial expansion, racist theories were necessary to justify the one-sided flow of men. Without racism, one could not exterminate natives, take their property, ban their industries, create huge landholdings, and deprive people of basic human rights. But now racism is not needed anymore. As the colonial adventure of Europe is over, the morally wrong and scientifically mistaken theory of racial superiority can be laid to rest.

The real Left should promote the interests of working classes, which means it must object to mass immigration. But, under Mammonite influence, the liberal Left supports immigration for the reason of compassion. Mammonites, normally devoid of compassion, utilise this humanitarian reasoning for their own purposes. It gives them an additional profit: European and American working people are being alienated from the Left. For workers, the dangerous nature of immigration is obvious. Immigrants live in close quarters with the local workers and suffer from their competition for work places. Thus, they are forced to embrace the racist Far Right.

There is a good way out of the impasse, a way that is good for everybody but Mammonites. Stop immigration and open a money-transfer line to the Third World. Africa and Sweden should have the same income. Tax money should flow to the Indians of the Amazon and to the peasants of Afghanistan. Not many Pakistanis will immigrate to Britain, if they had the same (or almost the same) income back home. The EC is a proof of this: though the Swedes still earn more than the Portuguese, Greeks and Italians, the difference is not that big, and these lands are peaceful, so there is very little inter-communal immigration into Sweden or Germany. As for compassion, true Christian compassion tells you to let people live at home, under their vines and their fig trees, as good as they would live in your land. You would not have very cheap cleaners, but you will live in a cleaner and better land. That would be just, as for hundreds of years Europe and the US pumped wealth out of the South and the East.

The immigrant’s lot is a sad one. After all, immigration is exile, this saddest state of man. Ovid bewailed it on the Moldavian shore, and prince Genji decried in Suma. My Palestinian friend Musa brought his elderly father from the village of Aboud to his new home in Vermont, and the old man began to build terraces, as on the slopes of the Samaritan hills. We are so much a part of the landscape, part and parcel with mountains and valleys. Now, when in the US and Europe there are attacks on immigrants, probably many of them think of their homes they were forced to leave.

While I think that immigration should be stopped and supplanted by transfer of funds to the poorer lands until incomes level, immigrants who have already came over, have probably come to stay. They can become locals: Germans in Germany, French in France, Americans in America, Palestinians in Palestine. The ancestors of European and American people also migrated, and adopted to new ways. Germanic tribes of Franks overran Romanised Celtic Gaul, and together with its old population they formed the modern French. Descendents of European Crusaders still live in the Palestinian village Sinjil that preserves the glorious name of the Provencal commander Raymond de St Gilles, but they have become Palestinians in every way and are being besieged by Israelis as everybody else. So did the Georgians, brought eight hundred years ago to the Jerusalemite village of Malcha by the orders of Queen Tamar. They became Palestinian, and shared the fate of other Palestinians when they were expelled from their houses by Zionist invaders in 1948.

Human beings are adaptable, and if the immigrants love their new land, they can become locals. I know it: a native of Siberia, I choose to become a Palestinian.

VI
WWIII is a war against variety per se, initiated by the adepts of Greed. They do not like the delightful mosaic of races and cultures; they would rather homogenise the world. They have a practical reason: it is easier to sell goods to homogenised mankind. They have a moral reason: they do not want people to enjoy this beauty for free, so it has to be destroyed. They have a religious reason: the Mammon worshippers feel this jolly plurality is a sacrilege against their jealous god. Beautiful things of old belong in a museum, where they can charge an entrance fee, after the village is destroyed.

In a beautiful adolescent movie, The Never-Ending Story, the many-coloured world of Fantasy disappears into Nothing. This happens to our marvellous world. Old and unique places are being erased and supplanted by shopping malls and scorched land. The Left and the Right should join forces against the Nothing that threatens our very existence.

    Headline: JUDEA DECLARES WAR ON GERMANY—AGAIN!
    Judea claims Israel not enough; wants Greater Israel now.
    Floods Germany with Millions of Blacks and Muslims to Complete the Extermination of Whites.

    Thanks for the interesting article, Sir. You raise good points.

    However, all the evidence indicates that the Judaists are behind this alien invasion of Europe by hordes of black and Muslim men who will attack and kill white women and men and exterminate the white race, carrying out the Jewish wish of establishing a Greater Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates, by clearing this land by transporting the Syrians to Europe and finishing the white race, who they consider a “cancer” (Jewish Susan Santog), wish white hearts would stop beating (-Jewish Tim Wise) and as retaliation for the holohoax, etc. so it never happens again—thus killing 2 birds with one stone.

    [MORE]

    For example:

    “Jewish Groups Lead Push to Crack Open Doors to Syrian Refugees” at:

    http://forward.com/news/310825/jewish-groups-lead-push-to-open-doors-to-syrian-refugees/

    Jerusalem Post runs a scam:
    “Holocaust refugee: We owe it to mankind to allow Syrian refugees into Europe”

    http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Holocaust-refugee-We-owe-this-to-mankind-to-allow-Syrian-refugees-into-Britain-415493

    Even though the Syrians, Britain and “mankind” have no connection with the holohoax! But for the Judaists, any lies or hoax or scam will do to cover up their real intent.

    Rav David Touitou, says the recent Muslim invasion of Europe is excellent news, here:

    http://mauricepinay.blogspot.com/2015/09/haredi-rabbi-says-muslim-invasion-of.html

    The Jew York Times has been calling these alien invaders “refugees” and “migrants” to fool the public. They have been jumping with joy with Angela Merkel announced she will destroy her own country by unleashing the alien flood on her own people, pouring adulation for her in their Jewish media.

    Transporting these 100,000’s of people from one continent to the other requires massive transportation and logistics, and these people are not walking across the continents, they are being transported in trucks and buses, and ships, and I will not be surprised if these transportations are secretly financed by the Judaists too. These invaders have to cross other countries, like Turkey, so the Turks are working hand in glove with the Judaists to allow the aliens to pass through, etc.

    The whole thing is not a spontaneous “happening”—it is a planned and well executed destruction of Europe by the Judaists. Immigration is the third world’s war on Europe/USA, incited and aided and abetted by the Judaists.

    The headlines should be: “Judea declares War on Germany–Again!”

  2. I’ve read no one reporting the real story. The EU is moving these people to Europe! First, look at a map of the Greek islands just off the coast of Turkey. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c7/Aegean_with_legends.svg

    They are so close that Arabs can see them from Turkey. All they have to do is get over to one and they’ve made it to Europe! They are then “entitled” to move elsewhere, and the EU actually pays to ferry them forward, lest they overwhelm these small, remote islands. In a sane world where governments are true democracies, the EU would huddle one day, and announce that due to the impossibility of defending Greek shores, that nation is exempt from EU refugee/asylum rules and any invaders will be deported immediately.

    Problem solved. And they all know this. So who is allowing this mass migration?

    Both were on the Left. One turned neocon, the other turned con. The con one has a better grasp of reality and limits.

    Ethnoconservatism is the only conservatism that makes sense. It is the only constant that is most permanent and stable.

    Look at Russia before communism, during communism, and after communism. What is the one thing that remains the meaningful constant: race and culture and historical sense.

    Ethnist or ethnicist is what we need to be.

    The migrants and citizens have the same enemy. Western elites.

    Western elites destabilize the home of migrants, and when migrants invade Europe with the approval of Western elites, they destroy the home of the citizens.

    Citizens and migrants shouldn’t be hating on each other. They should both hate on Western elites who should be brought down, tried Nuremberg style, and imprisoned or executed.

    Adon Shamir,

    My compliments.

    A beautifully crafted piece, the lands and valleys, joyousness and desperation, all come to fore at times with a soft glow, and on occasion with a vivid effulgence. History of political shifts, tectonic and inexorable, interrupt the pleasant, and I am left to ponder my personal conflicts, all of it swirling in the din and reality of a New York day.

    Are there any absolute truths to the human condition? How must I approach your account, filled with the undeniable verity of a collection of idiosyncratic experiences? In some of them I find common cause and identity. I have also known the village of Tzipori (Sepphoris). I know a Savta Jamillah, beautiful white-haired Palestinian grandmother in the Galil, she makes olive soap from the fruit of her own grove, who once questioned “when are the children of Avraham going to waken?” I had not an answer to it then.

    Nor today do I claim to have one.

    Mammonites do exist in ever greater droves, and I cannot wave away my own circumstances I fear, yet I should think that Man never stopped moving, reaching – mostly higher but often in circles – for some goal which still remains elusive.

    Stasis is not coded in our DNA, and we shan’t stop until we find what we seek, perhaps unleashing misery in it wake, but finding greater good in the end is my hope and belief.

    The question is:What are the Chomsky’s motives? I believe the Chomsky’s advocacy of open borders is motivated exclusively by hyper-ethnic Jewish hatred of The Historic Native Born White Christian American Majority.

    If White Secession happens in the near future….fairy tale “WE ARE NUMBER ONE” AMURRICA comes to an end….And if it does, there very likely will be a realization that huge tracks of Native Born White American Living and Breeding Space has been lost to China….What comes next?

  14. Priss Factor [AKA "The Priss Factory"] says: • Website

    Let’s use Jewish-Holocaust logic in another way.

    One perspective says that Jews were once refugees during WWII but the world didn’t take them. So, the world must atone for its ‘sins’ and be welcoming of refugees from all around.

    But another narrative says because of the Holocaust, Jews needed a safe home of their own with solid borders so that Jews could let Jews in, keep gentiles out, and have a strong fortress for themselves.

    Well, using this logic, every nation needs a strong nation of its own so that its people will have a safe haven of their own.

    If Israel had existed during WWII, then Jews could have fled there and sought safety and security in their own homeland.

    Then, the same logic goes for all other peoples. In case they become the target of hatred around the world, they need their own homeland to return to just in case.
    For example, suppose the world comes to hate Hungarians and kick them out of non-Hungarian nations. Well, at least Hungarians have Hungary to return to. Good for them.

    So, if the lesson of the Holocaust is Jews need a home of their own(as safe haven) where Jews have the power and where Jews control the borders and decide who comes and goes, then this right should apply to all other peoples.

    But Jews have been invading and intervening in other Middle East nations, destroying Iraq, Libya, and Syria. And now, this massive demographic tide resulting from the mess is destabilizing Europe as well.

    So, it seems Jews learned the wrong lesson of the Holocaust.
    Yes, there was a Jewish refugee problem. But why was it a problem? Because Jews didn’t have a nation of their own, they had to beg to enter non-Jewish nations that were not welcoming. But if Jews had a nation of their own, European Jews could have all run to the Jewish Nation and sought refuge there.
    Because Israel now exists, if all European Jews were to become targets of hatred today, they could run to Israel for safety. Isn’t that nice?

    Well, why shouldn’t this rule apply to other nations as well? Suppose the world comes to hate and come after Hungarians or Poles, but at least Hungarians have Hungary to return to, and Poles have Poland to return to. Even if even the homelands of peoples are ruined, what do they have to return to? They have no safe haven of their own.
    Suppose US turns nastily anti-Japanese and kicks out all Japanese. Well, at least Japanese can return to Japan.

    Syria was once the homeland of Syrians, but all the war-mongering made it difficult for syrians to return to Syria, so Syrian refugees now invade other nations. Leave other nations — safe havens of other peoples — alone.

    The only true lesson of WWII is LEAVE OTHER NATIONS ALONE and ALLOW EVERY PEOPLE TO HAVE A HOMELAND OF THEIR OWN AS SAFE HAVEN TO PROTECT THEIR OWN.

    Jews learned this lesson by creating and owning Israel. Why don’t they respect this right among other nations?

    Homos attack Christians in the West, and Muslims attack Christians in Syria.
    Both the anti-Christian homos and anti-Christian Muslims are supported by globo-Jews.

    Putin defends Christians in Russia and in Syria.

    “Two thousand years later, a grandson of the Trier Rabbi, Karl Marx, came to a revolutionary conclusion: the faith of Mammon, this ‘week-day religion of Jews’, in his words, became the real religion of the American elites. Marx approvingly quoted a Colonel Hamilton: “Mammon is Yankee’s idol; they worship it not only with their lips, but with all strength of their body and soul. In their eyes, the earth is but a stock exchange, and they are convinced that they do not have other purpose on earth but to become richer than their neighbours”. Marx concluded, “The practical domination of the Jewish spirit over the Christian world has achieved in North America its unambiguous, complete expression”. This victorious Jewish spirit, for Marx, was based on ‘greed and egoism, its confession was business, it’s god — Money’.”

    This is the most brilliant and important article ever published on The Unz Report — PERIOD.

    It explains the motivation behind the coercive Jew culture that we see in America.

    People must read it at least twice.

    “In a sane world where governments are true democracies, the EU would huddle one day, and announce that due to the impossibility of defending Greek shores, that nation is exempt from EU refugee/asylum rules and any invaders will be deported immediately.

    Problem solved. And they all know this. So who is allowing this mass migration?”

    Great suggestion. I second the motion. Or, as I suggested on another thread, the Greeks should ferry these “refugees” to one of the deserted islands in the Aegean, set up camps (financed by the EU), and slowly process them. I think the message would get out that escaping to Lesbos in rafts will not get you speedily to Germany. That would dry up the invasion. Who would shell out thousands to a Turkish mobster to get to a deserted Greek island? All Europe benefits from the plan. What is stopping it other than collective (other than the Hungarians, Poles and Slovakians and other clear thinking East Europeans) insanity of the Europeans?

    Maybe at the start the vision was of migration-integration to simply diffuse the European genetic. This was happening in the 1970s. Multi-culturalism came along in the 80s-90s and almost guilt-tripped those of non-European heritage to reject European culture and rediscover distant, in time and space, cultures. That zeitgeist was closely followed by social media, which has instantly enabled the option of living within a diaspora instead of integrating. So that, far from diffusing the European genetic, we have reached a dangerous threshhold at which the European genetic has been alerted to its plight.

  21. Dr. Mr. Shamir,

    I immensely enjoy your articles. There is a point, however, which is relevant today, and perhaps you could not see ten years ago. Or perhaps you just aren’t convinced enough to bring it to the fore of the discussion.

    Consider what you wrote here:

    “Nobody, but nobody would leave his own land with its unique nature, lifestyle, friends and relatives, holy places and fathers’ graves for the dubious pleasure of camping by the walls of an Italian Cathedral. Like ducklings have their imprinting, men are born to love their native land. Young Telemachus compares his rocky and lean island with broad meadows and rich fields of Lacedaemon, and says to his host, ‘we have no meadow land at all, and my island rises rock-like from the sea. Yet its goat-pastures are more lovely in my sight than your fields for grazing horses’.

    “People migrate when their lands are ruined. The Irish would not have left the green fields of Erin for Chicago, if the English government had not starved them out. My own Russians would not come to occupy Palestine if Russia had not been ruined by the pro-American forces of Yeltsin and Chubais. For host folk, an immigration wave is a nuisance at best, a disaster at worst. It is not their fault; it is the question of numbers.”

    How does this hold in the face of the astounding number of migrants from Eritrea, Senegal. Nigeria and Mali? The first two are peaceful nations, and the last two have civil wars which were not caused by the West. If these countries have problems, they were caused by their own people. Senegal, in particular, has no grave problem, and yet people do not want to live there.

    And what about the South Asian refugees from Bangladesh and Pakistan? Have these countries been bombed or invaded?

    So, you could claim that your point still applies to countries that suffered Western intervention and which account for bigger numbers of emigrants than the ones I listed. Except that this is also not one hundred percent true. How do you know what would happen in a hypothetical situation of no intervention? If all peoples responded equally to the same stimulus, perhaps you could, since you have the above African and Asian examples of Muslim countries to answer that. But we don’t know that, do we?

    But, as I said, I immensely enjoy your articles, and it is true: you did predict, up to a point, the present catastrophe. And this single following paragraph would be enough to make me an eternal debtor of your wisdom:

    “While a single émigré is always welcome and adds colour to a society, mass immigration is no better than invasion. Whether immigrants come as invaders and conquerors, or as refugees, the receiving society gets a shock. If they are smart, they push local people away from interesting and important social positions and create their own subculture. If they are violent, they can take over the land by other means. If they are humble and timid, they bring down the price of labour. That is why in normal circumstances immigrants are not popular.”

    Too funny. Non-Syrians become ‘Syrians’ and then become ‘Europeans’.

    Talk about trans-racialism.

    Israel Shamir is an insincere convert to Christianity and an anti-semite and so was Karl Marx a convert and an anti-semite. It a shame that anyone can take the nonsense he spews out seriously.

  26. […] Wnuk rabina z Tieru, Karol Marks doszedł do rewolucyjnego wniosku: mianowicie wiara w Mamona, ta „dnia powszedniego religia Żydów” stała się prawdziwą religią elit amerykańskich. Dla poparcia tej tezy Marks cytuje  obserwację pułkownika Hamiltona: „Mamona jest ich bożyszczem, wielbią go nie tylko ustami, lecz wszystkimi siłami swego ciała i duszy. Ziemia jest w ich oczach tylko giełdą i są oni przekonani, że jedynym ich zadaniem na tym padole jest stać się bogatszym od swych sąsiadów.” Ten zwycięski żydowski duch, według Marksa, bazuje się na “chciwości oraz egoizmie, jego wyznaniem jest biznes, jego bogiem Pieniądz” http://www.unz.com/ishamir/on-the-move/ […]
