Tommorow is a the Jewish Holiday commemorating the destruction of the two Jewish temples. I am preparing for the fast by planing a nap for twelve hours. The destruction of the temples and reflections of the diaspora will be in my thoughts.
I have been reading Bat Ye'ors articles in Robert Spencers book the myth of tolerant Islam. She writes exensively on the French role in fastering Arabism to further its own colonial ambitions in the middle east.
She describes anti zionism as the confluence of traditional Jihadism with anti semitic replacement theology from Europe. This may explain the early roots of traditional anti zionism. However modern European anti zionism is Marxist as typified be the gifted ignorance of 167. The Joooooo/ Zionist is the agent of Capitalism and thus the war for Soialist/ Communist utopia runs through Israel. Attacking the USA and now openly is just a diversion of their master plan to emerge victorious after a clash of civilizations.
There is a tad of irony not lost on Tisha B Av. The two nations in Europe that will demographicaly become Muslim first are Austria the birth place of Hitler and France the creator of Pan Arabism. The question of what type of Islam will emerge in Europe is open . A more liberal form may emerge in Europe as open societies and Jihad are incompatible. A far right or left populist backlash is a possibility but I do not see
it happening. The USA will not have to deal with this as Latin , Hindu and Chinese immigration outpace those immigrants from Muslim countries.
