Historically, fascism has been the answer of the elites to the threat of socialism; the mask behind which they pretend to be "champions of the people;" the facade behind which they hide their greed and avarice under the rubric of "patriotism" and "love of country." That was the case in the first decades of the twentieth century when Europe suffered through a deadly inflation in the 1920s, followed by an even more damaging depression in the 1930s, all of which provoked many in Europe to look to socialism as an answer to their economic woes - a solution which provoked a fascist response from the elites.
Now a similar economic crisis is taking hold of the continent of Europe, and once again great numbers of people in the "Old World" are looking to socialism to escape the economic HORROR that is beginning to encompass them. And just how terrible that HORROR is was described recently by David North:
The answer of the elites to this crisis is to enforce draconian economic measures (raising taxes, cutting social benefits, etc.) on "the people" in order to re-coup the money that they squandered gambling on the world's exchanges during the last decade.
WHETHER THE MASSES WILL GO ALONG OR NOT ...
However, whether the "masses" in Europe will go along with the "austerity measures" the elites want to enforce on them in order to re-coup their losses is open to question. Richard Grove writes:
IF THAT'S THE CASE, THE ELITES ARE
Dublin Council of Trade Unions
"In view of the cuts in public and social spending, WHICH HAVE TRANSFERRED THE COST OF THE ECONOMIC CRISIS ON TO WORKING PEOPLE, the poorest and the most defenseless, while billions of euros are handed over to the banks to bail them out, the Dublin Council of Trade Unions is convening a Forum of Trades Councils, trade unions, trade unionists, community organisations, campaigns, NGOs, political parties and organisations, independent Tads, etc. to discuss [a socialist answer] to these austerity measures."
Spanish trade union movement
"This economic crisis has had a devastating impact on the world's poorest, wiping out much of the progress which had been made on reducing global poverty. BANKS HAVE BEEN RESCUED, BUT PEOPLE ARE BEING LEFT BEHIND. There is a growing risk that the plight of hundreds of millions of people will slip to the very bottom of the international agenda."
Very obviously, they too are ready to fight. Finally, there is Italy, which has a trade union movement second to none in Europe; moreover, the Communist Party in Italy enjoys wide-popular support among the people. The party recently released the following notice:
"The policy of the Italian Communist Party (PCI) today is based on the conviction that Italy is in the grip of a very serious crisis and that THE LABOR MOVEMENT MUST DO EVERYTHING IN ITS POWER TO OVERCOME THIS CRISIS BY TRANSFORMING ITALIAN SOCIETY IN THE DIRECTION OF SOCIALISM."
Spanish trade union movement
That's the kind of "stuff" that afflicts the elites with nightmares; the same kind of NIGHTMARES the elites thought they had banished from the face of the earth after the fall of the old Soviet Union. It seems that "killing" this nightmare is proving more difficult than the elites had imagined. It is PRECISELY this kind of nightmare that caused the elites of Europe (particularly the elites in Germany, Italy and Spain) to embrace fascism in the 1920s and '30s, and precipitated two assassination plots against President Franklin D. Roosevelt by a Morgan-Mellon cabal in the early months of FDR's first term as president.

NIGHTMARE OF THE ELITES
Shades of 1917 and the destruction of the Russian Aristocracy by the enraged Russian masses - a NIGHTMARE THAT WILL NOT GO AWAY insofar as the rich are concerned, not only in Europe, but in America as well.
VIDEO OF THE STORMING
OF THE WINTER
PALACE BY THE COMMUNISTS
To hear conservatives today, one would think that the fascism of Hitler, Mussolini and Franco was a form of socialism; that there is little to distinguish between the so-called socialism of the fascist model and the socialism of the communist model. BUT THAT IS ABSOLUTELY UNTRUE. It's a fabrication dreamed up by the idiots and dimwits of FOX NEWS AND OTHER SIMILAR "CONSERVATIVE" OUTLETS.
Austin Cline explains:
"Many conservatives insist that the Nazis were an example of a 'socialist' government as part of their effort to discredit socialism and leftist policies in general. This is rather like using the example of East Germany - i.e., the so-called 'German Democratic Republic' - to discredit democracy: it demonstrates the speaker's inability to comprehend reality."
"The idea that workers controlled the means of production in Nazi Germany is a bitter joke. It was actually a combination of aristocracy and capitalism.
"Private businessmen owned and controlled the means of production. The Nazi "Charter of Labor" gave employers complete power over their workers. It established the employer as the 'leader of the enterprise', and read: 'The leader of the enterprise makes the decisions for the employees and laborers in all matters concerning the enterprise'. The employer, however, was subject to the frequent orders of the ruling Nazi elite. After the Nazis took power in 1933, they quickly established a highly controlled war economy under the direction of Dr. Hjalmar Schacht.
Many in America have been taught that the Nazi movement in Germany was a "socialist movement;" IT WAS NOT! - despite its name (The German National Socialist Party). It was a movement that gave control of the German economy to the German financial elites - and left the "people" out in the cold. The use of the term "socialist" was only a ruse! - a contrivance, and a very wicked one at that.
"Prior to the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, worker protests had spread all across Germany in response to the Great Depression. During his drive to power, Hitler exploited this social unrest by promising workers to strengthen their labor unions and increase their standard of living. But these were empty promises; privately, he was reassuring wealthy German businessmen that he would crack down on labor once he achieved power.
"The Nazis abolished trade unions, collective bargaining and the right to strike. An organization called the "Labor Front" replaced the old trade unions, but it was an instrument of the Nazi party and did not represent workers.
"According to the law that created it, 'Its task is to see that every individual should be able ... to perform the maximum of work'. Workers would indeed greatly boost their productivity under Nazi rule but they also became exploited. Between 1932 and 1936, workers wages fell, from 24.4 to 19.5 cents an hour for skilled labor, and from 16.1 to 13 cents an hour for unskilled labor."
"Foreigners: Get out of Germany."
One would think that average workers in Germany would have caught on to what was happening - i.e., that they were being "dumped on" by the Nazi Party and Germany's financial elites.
But they did not: and the reason was that the Nazis employed a "cover" to deflect the attention of the German people from what was happening to them economically: RACISM - and not only racism against the Jews, but all minorities: Slavs, blacks, homosexuals, gypsies, etc. AND THIS IS PRECISELY WHAT THE ELITES IN EUROPE (AND FOR THAT MATTER, THE UNITED STATES) ARE DOING TODAY, just as they did in the 1930s in their effort to stave off the threat of socialism in Italy, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. The fact is, today the elites are beginning to pour money into the extreme parties of the Right in order to save themselves from the threat of socialism: and the "boogieman" they are using this time? - The so-called Islamic invasion of Europe - and they are being abetted in this effort by America's so-called "Neo-Conservatives." [Please see our article, "The Neo-Conservatives."]
German businessmen who supported Hitler: Fritz Thyssen of Thyssen Mining and Steel, Alfred Krupp of Krupp Armaments, Hermann Schmitz of I.G. Farben, Carl Siemens of Siemens Electric; these were the German equivalents of the Morgan-Mellon conspiracy in the United States - only they succeeded where their American counterparts failed.
For example, Time Magazine reports that -
"... far-right parties are attracting applause in many corners of Europe these days. Almost a million British voters honked their horns for the BNP [The British National Party] in June's European elections, giving the party its first two seats in the European Parliament and a corresponding boost to legitimacy and funding."
NOTE: The British National Party (BNP) is a far-right political party headed up by Nick Griffen. The BNP seeks to restore the overwhelmingly white ethnicity of Britain that existed prior to 1948. It styles itself as a "CHRISTIAN" political party and seeks to expel all Muslims from the country.
Nick Griffen and the BNP
The report continues:
"In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders' Partij voor de Vrijheid (Party for Freedom, PVV) elbowed aside centrist rivals to grab second place in the Netherlands' Euro poll."
NOTE: Like the BNP in Britain, the PVV styles itself as a "CHRISTIAN" political party that seeks to restore the Netherlands to the Dutch people by expelling all people of color (meaning Muslims) from the country. The party is led by Geert Wilders.
Geert Wilders and the PVV
The electoral success of these two Euro-centric, white, "CHRISTIAN" parties mirrors a frightening trend in Europe where, as Time Magazine reports -
"... [right-wing] extremist parties, as varied as the countries that produced them yet united by a vehement nationalism that singles out minority groups as a growing threat, scored in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Romania and Slovakia - all of which are confronted with sliding economies and disappearing jobs."
Centering in on the successful surge of the PVV in Holland, Times goes on to say that Wilders -
"... warns of a growing conflict between Dutch Muslims and the rest of his country's citizens ... The Dutch, who pride themselves on their tolerance and inclusive attitudes, have been shocked to discover that many Muslims in the Netherlands ... empathize with jihadis ... The Dutch citizens ... have become ... resentful that Dutch hospitality has seemingly counted for nothing ... Only 5% of the Dutch population — around 850,000 people — is Muslim. But Dutch Muslim communities are highly visible, being concentrated in urban areas, and their birthrates outstrip those of the wider community. 'Islam wants to dominate every part of life and society', says Wilders. 'It does not want to integrate or assimilate'."
Very obviously, Wilders - like many others not only in Holland, but throughout Europe - is frightened by the growing influence of the Islamic community in Holland; he warns that,
"... all is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. WE MIGHT BE IN THE FINAL STAGES OF THE ISALMIZATION OF EUROPE."
The Islamic Invasion of Europe.
This so-called "fact" was rammed home to the Dutch people by two recent assassinations of very prominent countrymen: Pim Fortuyn and Theodoor "Theo" van Gogh. Both were outspoken critics of what they saw as the "Islamic Invasion of Europe."
Fortuyn maintained that Muslims and other immigrants who refused to accommodate themselves to Dutch values were a threat to liberty; he authored a best-seller, Against the Islamicization of our Culture. Fortuyn founded his own political party and shocked political observers by taking a third of the seats in Rotterdam municipal elections. It was rumored that his killer - Volkert van der Graaf - had links to al Qaeda, and while there probably was no truth to the rumor, it was, nonetheless, widely accepted by the general public in Holland.
On the other hand, the murder of van Gogh was clearly linked to Islamic extremists. Indeed, the murder of the filmmaker on the streets of Amsterdam, in broad daylight, by a young man of Moroccan origin bent on jihad shocked and seriously dented Dutch confidence that unconditional tolerance can be on its own the unifying principle of a viable society.
Pim Fortuyn and Theodoor "Theo" van Gogh. Both men were targeted and killed because of their outspoken criticism of the way women were treated in the Islamic world.
The fear that Europe is slowly being "Islamized" is a widely believed "supposition" in the world at large - and so much so that Diana West wondered out loud in an op-ed piece in the Washington Times:
"Is Europe lost?"
She answers her own question:
"No, not yet ... But that doesn't mean the continent isn't currently hell-bent to accommodate the dictates of Islamic law, bit by increasingly larger bit. Such a course of 'accommodation', barring reversal, will only hasten Bernard Lewis' famous prediction that Europe will be Islamic by century's end."
NOTE: The Washington Times is the conservative answer to the liberal Washington Post in the nation's capital city. And there can be no doubt as to the "conservative" (even racist) credentials of the Times; take Francis B. Coombs, Jr., the second most powerful editor at The Washington Times: The Huffington Post reports that Coombs is reliably reported to be an unreconstructed "racial nationalist who believes that blacks are "born genetically 15 to 20 IQ points lower than white people." [Please see our article, "Racism and Right-Wing Christianity: Laying the Intellectual Foundations for an Attack on America's Minority Communities by America's Majority Community."]
"What do I mean by 'accommodation'? Well, to take one tiny example, one snowflake in a blizzard of such examples, there are schools in Belgium that not only serve halal food [i.e., foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines] to Muslim and non-Muslim alike (old news), but, according to a recent French magazine report, no longer teach authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot ... For a more substantial, indeed, keystone example of 'accommodation', we can look to England, where, it pains me to write, Sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. According to press reports this week, the British government has quietly and cravenly elevated five Sharia courts to the level of tribunal hearings, thus making their rulings legally binding."
West believes only the parties of the far-right in Europe have any chance of stopping the "Islamic Invasion of Europe." She goes on to say:
"Of the parties dedicated to resisting Islamization that I examined in Europe last summer, the most promising range from the sizeable Vlaams Belang in Belgium to the tiny Sweden Democrats, and include the Lega Nord in Italy, the Party for Freedom of Geert Wilders in Holland, the Danish People's Party, the Swiss People's Party and the Austrian Freedom Party. Such parties are unknown here, or ignored. Worse, they are shunned. Why? I believe it's because their respective political opponents in the leftist media and governing establishments that are increasingly dependent on Islamic support, have successfully slandered these parties as "extremists," "racists," "fascists" and "Nazis."
NOTE: The political parties named here by West are all euro-centered, white "CHRISTIAN" parties dedicated to expelling Muslims from Europe; all these parties enjoy the support of America's Neo-Conservatives and the American Christian community that is allied with them.
A POSTER ATTACKING THE CONCEPT OF SHARIA COURTS IN BRITAIN
At least 85 Islamic Sharia courts are operating in Britain, a study recently claimed. This astonishing figure is 17 times higher than previously accepted. The tribunals, working mainly from mosques, settle financial and family disputes according to religious principles. They lay down judgments which can be given full legal status if approved in national law courts.
[Again, please see our article, "The Neo-Conservatives."]
West asks rhetorically,
"Is advocating freedom of speech 'extreme' or 'fascist'? Is opposing Islam's law, which knows no race, 'racist'? Is supporting Israel (which these parties do far more than other European parties) 'Nazi'? The outrageously empty epithets of the Islamo-socialist left seem calculated to stop thought cold and trigger a massive rejection reflex. In this way, resistance becomes anathema, and Islamic law, unchecked, spreads across Europe."
West goes on to say:
"Does that sound 'Islamophobic'? You bet. How can anyone who values freedom of conscience, equality before the law and other such Western jewels not have a healthy fear of Islamic law, which values none of these things? Incredibly, this is an emotion that is supposed to be suppressed and, in Europe, on pain of prosecution. Indeed, because Filip Dewinter admitted to such 'Islamophobia' in an interview, his party, the Vlaams Belang, has been taken to court in Belgium on charges of racism, and, if convicted, will be effectively shut down through defunding by the government."
Filip Dewinter of Vlaams Belang
"That hasn't stopped Dewinter, who, in accepting an award at a memorial event dedicated to Oriana Fallaci in Florence, last week, said: 'Islamophobia is not merely a phenomenon of unparalleled fear, but it is the duty of every one who wants to safeguard Europe's future. EUROPE MEANS ROME, GREECE, ENLIGHTENMENT AND JUDEO-CHRISTIAN ROOTS. EUROPE IS A CONTINENT OF CASTLES AND CATHEDRALS, NOT OF MOSQUES AND MINARETS."
"Of course, even as Dewinter admits to fearing the Islamization of Europe, he and his colleagues act with exceptional political and physical bravery in rallying voters against it. This coming weekend, he joins several other politicians on the Sharia-fighting right in Europe among them two other men I interviewed, Mario Borghezio of Lega Nord, which is part of Italy's ruling coalition, and Heinz-Christian Strache of Austria's Freedom Party, which is expected to become part of Austria's ruling coalition after elections this month in Cologne, Germany."
Borghezio of Lega Nord, and Heinz-Christian
West laments that -
"... in this ancient cathedral city [meaning Cologne], where the city council recently approved the construction of a long-controversial mega-mosque, these men will address a rally against European Islamization."
No mega-mosque in Cologne: As Dewinter says, "Europe means Rome, Greece, Enlightenment and Judeo-Christian roots. Europe is a continent of castles and cathedrals, NOT of mosques and minarets'."
Nonetheless, the idea that Europe is really in danger of being subverted by a "Muslim Invasion" is absurd. Ralph Peters, who is no apologist for the Islamic community, writes:
"The notion that continental Europeans, who are world-champion haters, will let the impoverished Muslim immigrants they confine to ghettos take over their societies and extend the caliphate from the Amalfi Coast to Amsterdam has it exactly wrong. The endangered species isn't the 'peace loving' European lolling in his or her welfare state, but the continent's Muslims immigrants - and their multi-generation descendents - who were foolish enough to imagine that Europeans would share their toys. In fact, Muslims are hardly welcome to pick up the trash on Europe's playgrounds."
Muslims: Locked up in Europe's ghettos like the Jews before them.
He continues ominously:
"Don't let Europe's current round of playing pacifist dress-up fool you: This is the continent that perfected genocide and ethnic cleansing, the happy-go-lucky slice of humanity that brought us such recent hits as the Holocaust and Srebrenica.
"The historical patterns are clear: WHEN EUROPEANS FEEL SUFFICIENTLY THREATENED - EVEN WHEN THE THREAT IS CONCOCTED NONSENSE - THEY DON'T JUST REACT, THEY OVER-REACT WITH STUNNING FEROCITY. One of their more humane (and frequently employed) techniques has been ethnic cleansing.
"And Europeans won't even need to re-write The Protocols of the Elders of Zion with an Islamist theme - real Muslims zealots provide Europe's bigots with all the propaganda they need. Al Qaeda and its wannabe fans are the worst thing that could have happened to Europe's Muslims. Europe hasn't broken free of its historical addictions - WE'RE GOING TO SEE EUROPE'S HISTORY REPRISED ON METH."
HATRED OF MUSLIMS
"We're going to see Europe's history reprised on meth."
"We don't need to gloss over the many Muslim acts of barbarism down the centuries TO RECOGNIZE THAT EUROPEANS ARE JUST BETTER AT THE EXTERMINATION PROCESS. From the massacre of all Muslims and Jews (and quite a few Eastern Christians) when the Crusaders reached Jerusalem in 1099 to the massacre of all the Jews in Buda (not yet attached to Pest across the Danube) when the "liberating" Habsburg armies retook the citadel at the end of the 17th century, Europeans have just been better organized for genocide.
"It's the difference between the messy Turkish execution of the Armenian genocide and the industrial efficiency of the Holocaust. Hey, when you love your work, you get good at it."
The Europeans are just better at extermination than are the Muslim.
"Far from enjoying the prospect of taking over Europe by having babies, Europe's Muslims are living on borrowed time. WHEN A THIRD OF FRENCH VOTERS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THEIR WILLINGNESS TO VOTE FOR JEAN-MARIE LE PEN'S NATIONAL FRONT - A PARTY THAT MAKES THE KU KLUX KLAN SEEM LIKE HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH - ALL PREDICTIONS OF EUROPE GOING GENTLY INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT ARE SURREAL."
La Pen and the French National Front
"All the copy-cat predictions of a Muslim takeover of Europe not only ignore history and Europe's ineradicable viciousness, but do a serious disservice by exacerbating fear and hatred. AND WHEN IT COMES TO HATRED, TRUST ME: THE EUROPEANS DON'T NEED ANYONE'S HELP."
Help coming from under the table
Nevertheless, whether the Europeans need the help of the Americans in developing their own racial viciousness or not, they're getting it - AND THEY'RE GETTING IT IN SPADES! - and a lot of that help is coming "under the table."
"The publication of the 12 cartoons, and the reaction on both sides, is a classic case of how propaganda of the crudest sort is utilized to mold mass attitudes and whip up entire populations into a state of hysteria. Hate and fear are created out of thin air by the most skillful means, and stereotypes take the place of reality as the world prepares for war. That's what this is all about: IT'S HATE PROPAGANDA EMANATING OUT OF CERTAIN QUARTERS ... IN THE U.S. and amounts to preparations for a war [against the Muslims] just as much as the manufacture of arms and the mobilization of armies at the border. We [in the West] are being psychologically prepared for another world war, and the first shots are being fired from the pages of Jyllands-Posten [i.e., the Danish newspaper that carried these cartoons]."
Queen Margrethe II: A supporter of a white, Euro-centric "Christian" Europe
And just how successful this effort has been in "whipping up an entire population (i.e., the Danish population) against the Muslims" and - concomitantly - preparing them to embrace America's faux Christianity is attested to by the reaction of the Danish Queen, Margrethe II of Denmark:
"We are being challenged by Islam these years - globally as well as locally. It is a challenge we have to take seriously. We have let this issue float about for too long because we are tolerant and lazy. WE HAVE TO SHOW OUR OPPOSITION TO ISLAM and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance. And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of convenience or conviction."
Flemming Rose and Nik Kowsar at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Rose is the controversial editor of the Danish Jyllands-Posten newspaper that published the "Mohammed Cartoons."
The publication of these anti-Muslim cartoons and the fiery reaction to them by Muslims living in Europe and elsewhere was taken by many in the West as "proof" of Islamic intolerance vis a vis the "openness" and "tolerance" of Europe and North America. The European Press - as if on cue - rallied quickly to the defense of Jyllands-Posten and Flemming Rose, the "cultural editor" responsible for the publication of the cartoons, as a matter of "high principle."
Rose claimed that the genesis of the cartoons was the alleged reluctance of certain "artists" in Denmark to illustrate an upcoming children's biography of Muhammad because they were afraid of being targeted by Muslims for caricaturizing Muhammad - which is a "sin" in the Islamic world. Rose argued that the artists were engaged in "self-censorship" - and that this kind of "self-censorship" had to be confronted if the West was to survive as a free society. One Danish newspaper that sprang to Rose's defense declared in "high dudgeon:"
"Flemming Rose ... denied that the purpose had been to provoke Muslims. It was simply a reaction to the rising number of situations where artists and writers censured themselves out of fear of radical Islamists. He said. 'Religious feelings cannot demand special treatment in a secular society'; he added. 'In a democracy one must from time to time accept criticism or becoming a laughingstock'."
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Prime Minister of Denmark, is a "true believer" in the idea of a
The fact is, however, Raimondo was right: there was much more to the "Case of the Danish Cartoons" than at first met the eye - and evidence to that effect lay strewn all over the "crime scene." Lee Sustar of the ISR was one of the first to "pick up" on this evidence; he writes:
"One had to scour the foreign press ... to piece together the real political agenda behind the cartoons: A DRAMATIC SHIFT TO THE RIGHT IN DENMARK SINCE 2001, driven by the far-right Danish People's Party [which masquerades as a "CHRISTIAN" political organization], that provides the parliamentary support that keeps the ruling center-right coalition in office. The cartoons were a calculated racist provocation that took place in the wake of the government culture ministry's initiative to promote 'Danish culture' against the supposed influence of Denmark's Muslim population."
"All those topless gals on the Riviera wearing veils" - NOT LIKELY!!
Sustar buttresses and reinforces the suspicion of Raimondo insofar as the American connection to the recent Islamophobe that is sweeping through Europe; he picks up where Raimondo left off insofar as the Danish cartoons are concerned; he writes:
"The controversy over the Danish newspaper's publication of caricatures of Muhammad IS THE RESULT OF AN ANTI-MUSLIM CAMPAIGN BY THE ... [UNITED STATES] THAT JUSTIFIES EVERYTHING FROM WASHINGTON'S 'LONG WAR' AGAINST 'TERRORISM' TO VICIOUS CRACKDOWNS ON IMMIGRANTS ACROSS EUROPE ..."
Flemming Rose, it turns out, is a slavish devotee of both Pipe's views and of Pipes himself, and in 2004 he traveled to Philadelphia to "sit at the feet of the great man," as it were. He returned and penned a gushingly enthusiastic article about Pipes for Jyllands-Posten. Bollyn says of Pipes:
"Daniel Pipes is one of the more virulent and hateful of the 'Straussian neocons', famous for his racist and xenophobic statement that Muslim immigrants are 'brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and not exactly maintaining Germanic standards of hygiene', an attitude straight out of the Nazi school of racial hyperbole, a philosophy embraced by ... American 'STRAUSSIAN NEOCONS'." [For more on Leo Strauss, please see our article, "The Neo-Conservatives."]
The American neo-cons are doing what they do best here - using Christianity in the service of the American New World Order System; specifically, they are seeking to re-ignite a FAKE Christianity on the European continent with which American Christians can make "common cause" - the kind of FAKE Christianity, for example, that allowed Nazism to prevail in Germany; the kind of BOGUS Christianity that has taken hold on the United States today. AND IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING!
Leo Strauss and his right-wing disciples, among which are John Podhoretz, Rupert Murdoch, Elliott Abrams, Midge Decter, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Richard Pearl, Daniel Pipes, Bill Kristol, Robert Kagan, David Frum, etc.
"The United States is the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. America is the last man [meaning, the last Christian nation] standing."
However, with America's help Wilders sees the beginnings of hope in Europe:
"Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the [leftist] elites turn their backs on freedom, but the public does not. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat to our national identity. I don't think the public opinion in Holland is very different from other European countries.
"Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. MY OWN PARTY DEBUTED TWO YEARS AGO, WITH FIVE PERCENT OF THE VOTE. NOW IT STANDS AT TEN PERCENT IN THE POLLS. THE SAME IS TRUE OF SIMILARLY-MINDED PARTIES IN EUROPE. They are fighting the liberal establishment, and are gaining footholds on the political arena, one voter at a time. Now, for the first time, these patriotic parties will come together and exchange experiences. It may be the start of something big. Something that might change the map of Europe for decades to come. It might also be Europe's last chance."
NOTE: And it isn't just that these particular right-wing parties are growing - they are - but that they are influencing many of the so-called center-right parties to embrace a more radical racist agenda. This is certainly what has happened in France where Nicolas Sarkosy's Union pour un Mouvement Populaire (UMP) has embraced many of the racist policies of La Pen's National Front.
"And the beat goes on, the beat goes on Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain"
Sonny and Cher
And so the beat goes on in Europe - and it's getting louder and louder - just as it is in the United States. The Europeans are being "tricked" by their financial elites; financial elites who don't give a damn one way or another for the "POOR CARPENTER OF NAZARETH," but who are shamelessly using His Name to preserve themselves in power; after all, How can one possible imagine that they care even one whit for Someone who really was concerned for the poor, and who said of the poor -
"Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God." (Luke 6:20)
But who said of the rich:
"Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you." (James 5:1)
Nonetheless, it is this FALSE Christ - the Christ of the late D. James Kennedy, Bennie Hinn, Joyce Meyer, Rod Parsley, John Hagee, ad nauseum - that is being preached in Europe; a FALSE Christ and a FALSE Christianity that embraces the HORROR and BRUTALITY of the American New World Order System.
A denarius - a whole day's wage
"A measure of wheat for a penny [literally - denarius, a Greek coin which represented a WHOLE DAYS wages], and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Rev. 6:6)
NOTE: The meaning of this lyric is that the condition of man during this era (i.e., the "end of days") will be reduced to such that he will have to labor a whole day simply to buy a loaf of bread or three measures of barley. But the second part of the lyric [i.e., "... and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine ..."] means that the "hard times" of this period will not extend to the elites. This is the common interpretation - the one subscribed to by Ryrie, Pentecost, Ironside, Gaebelein, etc. AND THIS PROCESS IS SURELY TAKING HOLD ON THE PEOPLE OF EUROPE [Please see our article, "A Growing Fear of a Communist Uprising in Europe - Beginning First with Greece."]
"A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Rev. 6:6)
AND MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT: THIS LYRIC WILL BE THE "WATCHWORD" OF THE KIND OF CHRISTIANITY THAT EUROPEANS ARE BEING "TRICKED" INTO EMBRACING - A KIND OF CHRISTIANITY THAT WILL IN THE END REDUCE THEM TO THE SAME KIND OF SERFDOM THAT PREVAILS TODAY AMONG THE POOR IN AFRICA AND SOUTH AMERICA.
They "took our money, gambled it on the markets and now its gone."
"... took our money, gambled it on the markets and now its gone."
And now they want to reduce the "European masses" to poverty in order to get their money back; Kanelli says:
"They call it austerity, I call it a war [against the people]."
In saying this, Kanelli is once more demonstrating the fact that -
"... the children of this world are in their
wiser than the children of light" (Luke 16:8).
If you find yourself "fighting to save this world," remember, the world you are "fighting to save" belongs to Satan (1 John 5:19). THAT IS THE "GREAT DECEPTION" OF THE "LATTER DAYS - a deception that countless numbers of Christians are embracing today.
"MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD; IF MY KINGDOM WERE OF THIS WORLD, THEN WOULD MY SERVANTS FIGHT ... BUT ... MY KINGDOM COMES NOT FROM HENCE." (John 18:36)
And if that's the case, you should ask yourself, whose kingdom are you serving when you join in the crusade against Islam? Very obviously, it's not Christ's Kingdom; it's not without reason that Jesus said:
"... the whole world lies in [the power of] the evil one." (1 John 5:19 - NASB)
"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." (Matthew 5:44)
We URGE you to read (or re-read):
God bless you all!
We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE."
