"Never Again" means vigilance towards defeating, not appeasing, Jihadism against Judeo-Christianity

The lesson we must recognize and adapt to, this Holocaust & Heroism Remembrance Week 2014.

In the Sultan Knish blog essay, "Never Again," Daniel Greenfield puts into clear terms the big-picture of the west's sacrificing of the Jewish state in hopes of appeasing, rather than thwarting, global Islamism- and the need for Jews to understand and defeat this movement against them.

"When the Jews who fought among the crumbling walls of the Warsaw Ghetto finally made it to Israel, they came just in time to load up their guns and fight once again for their people's survival. The survivors of one genocidal ideology bent on making someone pay for its sense of humiliation came just in time to fight off another version of the same thing.

"After 2000 years of running, an indigenous minority that had been kicked around by emperors and caliphs finally made its stand around a handful of farming towns and in alleyways lined by the golden stone of Jerusalem. Men and women who only a few years earlier hid in their homes from Muslim pogroms, covering their children's ears at the cries of "Ibtach Al Yahood", "Kill the Jews", took up arms. They stood alongside the settlers who had drained the swamps, the refugees fleeing Muslim terror in Egypt and Syria and the remains of the original indigenous Jewish population which had survived the conquests of seven empires. They stood and fought for their lives against an ideology that said they had no right to be free because of their religion and the blood in their veins.

"Like their Nazi allies, Muslim violence was driven by a need to reverse the humiliations of World War I which dismantled the Ottoman Empire and gave regional minorities like the Jews a chance at rebuilding their own independent countries. But going back to 1914 was only the beginning. Some wanted to go back to 1492 and the fall of Granada. Others in the Saudi desert were dreaming of a return to the 6th century. But what they all had in common was a refusal to tolerate an independent non-Muslim state in their midst.

Jewish Daily Forward editor, J.J. Goldberg

"...So long as the world community accepts the inevitability of Islamic dominance, then Israel will always be the goat. The sacrifice to appease the beast.

If Never Again means anything at all, it is a refusal to be the sacrifice, to be placed on the altar of appeasement for a Holocaust, a burnt offering, to the Muslim Moloch of insatiable rage and genocidal fanaticism."  Read Daniel Greenfield's full article, "Never Again."

Kansas City killer rose to KKK power scapegoating Jews; Unwittingly murdered 3 generations of white Christians

Kansas shooting suspect has history of racist violence

Ex-KKK white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller was also involved in 1984 murder of Jewish talk show host.

The 73-year-old suspect, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist candidate for political office, has a long history of anti-Semitic violence and hate crimes, including involvement in at least one other murder.
Frasier Glenn Miller, who also goes by the alias Fraiser Glenn Cross Jr., founded the North Carolina-based White Patriot Party, an offshoot of the Ku Klux Klan, in 1980. In 1984 he ran in North Carolina’s Democratic primary for the governorship, garnering 5,790 votes – 0.61% of the total votes cast. He later attempted in 1986 to run in the North Carolina Republic primary for a Senate seat.

Miller was also involved in more violent activism. In 1984, while he ran for office in North Carolina, he and other members of a racist hate group that called itself “The Order” were accused of murdering liberal Jewish talk show host Alan Berg in Denver, Colorado.

"I try to work for the interests of white people," Ku Klux Klansman, Frasier Glenn Miller told Howard Stern in this 2010 Sirius radio interview.

Stern asked Miller whom he hated more, Jews or African-Americans, to which he responded, “Jews - a thousand-times more!  Compared to our Jewish problem, all other problems are mere distractions." 

As for God choosing the Jews to represent his stake in the world, Miller said, "How odd of God to choose the rats!"  He considers Jews "parasites," accuses Jews of being more loyal to Israel than to America, and claims that white men came to North America 14 or 14,000 years ago.

Prospective Republican candidates woo Jews; Israel in Gov. Chris Christie's remarks results in imbroglio

Sheldon Adelson at RJC Spring (Ethan Miller Times of Israel)
Jewish Republicans gathered to meet and evaluate potential candidates at the Republican Jewish Coalition's Spring Leadership Meeting in Las Vegas during the last weekend in March. 

This DemoCast-exclusive video features Ohio Gov. John Kasich addressing the gathering, as did Gov. Scott Walker, Amb. John Bolton, and Gov. Chris Christie. We filmed reactions to the gathering from R.J.C. Executive Director Matthew Brooks, Commentary Magazine Editor John Podhoretz, and Morton Klein, Exec. Dir. of the Zionist Organization of America.

In this DemoCast-exclusive, video interview, Zionist Organization of America's Executive Director, Morton Klein recounts his reaction to (and subsequent follow-up with) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's remarks that Judea and Samaria are "occupied (by Israel) territories."

Richard Miniter writes in Forbes Magazine, "Did Chris Christie "bully" Sheldon Adelson's friend?"

The more the donors learn about Gov. Christie—the more they are questioning his fitness for higher office.

“He hurt himself with that group. No doubt about it,” said Morton Klein, president of Zionist Organization of America. He was in the front row for Christie’s talk on Saturday and spoke to me on Tuesday morning. Klein is hugely influential in  pro-Israel circles and phones his longtime friend, Sheldon Adelson, every week or so to talk about Israel and American politics. Klein described his private encounter with Christie (described below) as “really unpleasant, condescending, rude, dismissive. [Christie] was bullying me. I’ve never had a politician speak to me that way.”

Klein talked to many of the major donors in the room and, he said, nearly every one had the same reaction. “They said ‘I never realized that Christie wasn’t a friend on Israel,’ it was a shock, a surprise.”

The media missed important aspects of the story—the very elements that are absorbing the attention of many Republican donors. While they were leaning toward Gov. Christie before his Saturday speech, now they are questioning his grasp of key issues, his stands and, most tellingly, his temperament and his character.

Christie’s Prepared Remarks Didn’t Mention Israel. Gov. Christie’s prepared remarks to a Republican Jewish Coalition meeting didn’t include any significant mention of Israel. Imagine a politician speaking to an African-American audience and not planning to mention civil rights or a chamber of commerce and not writing in a few lines about the economy.

Still, the speech has a hit and should have positioned the tough-talking former prosecutor for a presidential run in 2016. His speech even had a pitch-perfect sound bite: “We cannot have a world where our friends are unsure of whether we’ll be with them, and our enemies are unsure of whether we’ll be against them.”

The crowd thundered its approval. But that’s not the line that any one will remember.

Since the prepared speech was silent on Israel, it was the natural topic of questions from the audience. And that’s when Gov. Christie said the words that got him in trouble: “I took a helicopter ride from the occupied territories across and just felt personally how extraordinary that was to understand, the military risk that Israel faces every day.”

That phrase—“occupied territories”—set off murmurs in the crowd. “There was a buzz throughout the room,” Klein said.

“Most of the several hundred people in attendance noticeably gasped when Gov. Christie used the language of Israel’s enemies,” Klein told me. “Saying that territory captured in a defensive war [in 1967] in which its enemies sought its extinction is ‘occupied’ is designed solely to delegitimize the Jewish state’s claims to that land.”

The crowd’s reaction was predictable. “Occupied Territories” is not a neutral term for the land West of Jordan River, but a phrase used by radical Palestinian activists and others opposed to Israel’s identity as a Jewish state. The term doesn’t come from international law, but from partisan screeds. It is phrase that takes a side, not one that describes a place.  That’s why American diplomats, leaders and journalists generally avoid it. Instead they say “West Bank” or “Judea and Samaria” or similarly neutral formulations.

By using it, Klein said, Christie was signaling that he either was opposed to Israel or didn’t care enough to avoid the coded language of the anti-Israel crowd.

There is a third possibility that Klein didn’t consider. Like most state-wide office seekers, Christie has actively campaigned for votes among the growing Arab population of Passaic County, New Jersey (one of the largest in the country) and appointed prominent Muslim jurists to state government posts there. Among circles of Arab attorneys, the term “occupied territories” is widely used. Christie may have unconsciously picked it up among his supporters in Paterson, New Jersey.
