Meir Panim implements programs that serve Israel’s neediest populations with respect and dignity. Meir Panim also coordinated care packages for families in the South during the Gaza War.
I wish I could take you all on a visit to my country and show you what Europe has become. It has changed beyond recognition as a result of mass immigration. And not just any mass immigration, but mass immigration driven by Islam.
Islam wants to establish a state on earth ruled by Islamic sharia law. Islam aims for the submission – whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence – of all non-Muslims.
The results can be seen in Europe.
Islam is an ideology of conquest. It uses two methods to achieve this goal.
The first method is the sword. The second method is immigration.
Islam’s founder Muhammad himself taught his followers how to conquer through immigration when they moved from Mecca to Medina.
This phenomenon of conquest through immigration is called al-Hijra. In Europe we have been experiencing al-Hijra for over 30 years now. Many of our cities have changed beyond recognition.
Just a few weeks ago, the British press revealed how the so-called London Taliban is threatening to kill women who do not wear veils in the London borough of Tower Hamlets.
In some neighborhoods Islamic regulations are already being enforced, also on non-Muslims. Women’s rights are being trampled. We are confronted with polygamy, female genital mutilation, and honor-killings where men murder their wives, daughters or sisters because they do not behave in accordance with Islamic rules.
Polls show the influence of those Muslims who live according to Islam’s requirements is growing, especially among young people.
Among 15-year-old German Muslims, 40 percent consider Islam more important than democracy.
Among Muslim university students in Britain, 40 percent support sharia. One in three of those students considers it legitimate to kill in the name of Islam.
Muhammad personally participated in the ethnic cleansing of Medina, where half the population once was Jewish. On his deathbed, he ordered his followers to cleanse Arabia of all Jews and Christians.
To this very day, Christian and Jewish symbols are prohibited in countries like Saudi Arabia.
If you wear a cross or a kippah in certain urban areas in Europe today, you risk being beaten up. In the capital of my own country, Amsterdam, a tram driver was forced to remove his crucifix from sight – while his Muslim colleagues are allowed to wear the veil.
In June 2008, the Christian church authorities in the Danish town of Arhus decided to pay so-called protection money to Islamic so-called security guards who ensure that churchgoers are not harassed by Islamic youths.
On March 31, 2010, Muslims entered the Roman Catholic cathedral of Cordoba, Spain, and attacked the guards with knives. They claimed the cathedral was theirs.
Last month, the bishops of Sweden sent out a letter to priests advising them to avoid converting asylum seekers from Islamic countries to Christianity, because the converts would risk losing their lives.
Meanwhile Jews are no longer safe on European streets. In Amsterdam, the city of Anne Frank, Jews are again being harassed. Even political leaders acknowledge that life has become unsafe for Jews in Holland. Do you know what they said? They advised Jews to emigrate.
What is needed is a spirit of resistance.
Because resistance to evil is our moral duty. This resistance begins with expressing our solidarity with Christians, with Jews – indeed to all people worldwide – who are the victims of Islam. There are millions of them.
We can see what Islam has in store for us if we watch the fate of the Christians in the Islamic world, such as the Copts in Egypt, the Maronites in Lebanon, the Assyrians in Iraq.
Almost every day, churches are torched and Christians are killed in Islamic countries.
Rivers of tears are flowing from the Middle East, where there is only one safe haven for Christians. You know where that is.
The only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe is Israel.
That is why Israel deserves our support. Israel is a safe haven for everyone, whatever his or beliefs and opinions. Israel is a beacon of light in a region of total darkness. Israel is fighting our fight.
The jihad against Israel is a jihad against all of us. If Israel falls, we, too, will feel the consequences. If Jerusalem falls, Athens, Rome, Amsterdam – and Nashville, Tennessee – will fall.

The Jewish Press endorses the reelection of Gov. Andrew Cuomo. His record as governor these past four years offers eloquent testimony to the experience and vision he has to lead the Empire State for the next four years.
I think Seth Lipsky is amazing, but it just drives home the point that newspapers have a lot of moving parts.
Myth #1: It is easy to be a B’nai Noach. It is extraordinarily hard to be a B’nai Noach.
The question of anti-Semitism in Europe today is truly tied to the issue of immigration.
Defeating IS requires bombing its strongholds and recognizing the violent nature of Islam.
We have to believe in the superiority of our Western values. If we do not, we will not be prepared to defend them. That is why we have to end the biggest disease in the world today, the cultural relativism which posits that all cultures are equal. Our Judeo-Chrisitian, humanist civilization is more free, more democratic, more tolerant than any civilization the world has ever seen. We should not be afraid to say so.
