“From the River to the Sea, Israel will be free!”

Over the weekend, pro-Palestinian demonstrations took place in many European and American cities. And that is primarily your problem, not Israel’s.

Tens of thousands took to the streets in many major European cities and the USA over the weekend to show their solidarity with the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. From their point of view, Israel alone is responsible for all evil. Israel massacres the people of Gaza, they say, but not a word about the actual massacre in Israel. “From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free” – shouted people in the streets. But I think our version rhymes even better: “From the River to the Sea, Israel Will Be Free.” What is happening in Europe and America is primarily your problem, not Israel’s.

In London, according to police reports, around 30,000 people demonstrated in Trafalgar Square. In the French capital Paris, police estimated the number of demonstrators at 20,000, but other sources said there were more. Of course, Palestinian flags and signs reading “Free Palestine” could be seen everywhere. The state of Israel should be boycotted immediately, some Arab demonstrators said, while others held up signs reading “Israel is a terrorist state.”

In Germany, pro-Palestinian demonstrations also took place yesterday in Düsseldorf and Berlin. According to police information, there were around 17,000 people on the streets in Düsseldorf and an estimated 10,000 in Berlin. Thousands of people also protested in Milan yesterday against Israel’s bombing of the Gaza Strip.

In Washington, thousands have called for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. In front of the White House, they accused US President Joe Biden of genocide: “Biden, Biden, you can’t hide, you have approved genocide.” People in Montreal, Canada, also called for the “liberation” of Palestine. A few days earlier, a large demonstration took place in Istanbul. The Turkish “Sultan” Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a Muslim, but not an Arab. Nevertheless, he tries to be more Arab than the Arabs. He stands up for the Palestinians like no other Arab leader in the Middle East.

The majority of pro-Palestinian demonstrators in the major cities mentioned were certainly Arabs from various countries, including many Palestinians. White Europeans also took part on the sidelines, shouting against Israel and cursing the Jews. Of course such demonstrations have a political impact on the respective governments, but that is the problem of the European governments. What unites the descendants of the Crusaders and the new Muslims in Europe is hatred of the Jews. This is a shame, because Europe is a popular vacation destination for Israelis, and now many Israelis are afraid to spend a weekend in Paris or London. In addition, there are currently hardly any flights abroad.

But still that’s not really our problem. The tens of thousands of Muslims in Europe are just the tip of the iceberg. Millions of Muslims have settled in Europe and will one day be your enemies and attack you from within. If even we have misjudged the Palestinians, especially the Hamas regime in Gaza, which our intelligence services previously concluded “wants peace with Israel, whether for tactical or other reasons” – if even we can fall for this, then it can happen to anyone. Yes, Israel was duped by Hamas. And that’s why we’re at war. And if that happened to Israel, then it could happen to Europe and America, easily. Since the Arab Spring of 2011, European governments have welcomed millions of Arab refugees. You have to help people in need. That is love. But why did no other Arab country that had the resources accept Arab refugees? Why didn’t any of the oil-rich Persian Gulf states take them in? Europe acted out of fear so that no one could say that it “does not love its neighbor as itself.”

Anyone who believes that Muslims as a collective will gradually integrate or adapt to Western or Christian culture in Europe is mistaken. Here and there I hear about Muslims converting to Jesus. That’s nice, but these are isolated cases. For some governments in Europe the penny has probably dropped or is still falling. European politicians have seen the atrocities of the barbaric Hamas terrorists in the Israeli army spokesman’s film. Thanks to the GoPro cameras on the heads of Palestinian terrorists, we now have authentic proof of how terrorists slaughtered Jews in southern Israel. Whole families. And in the films, the Palestinian barbarians shout “Allahu Akhbar” and behead a young girl in the name of their god.

Do people in Europe, in this case Christians, believe that Muslims will be merciful to Christians? No. For Muslims, the Christian West is the stronghold of the Crusaders, and they slaughtered the Muslims in the Holy Land a thousand years ago. Muslims don’t forget this. According to the Koran, Jews and Christians are “infidels” and therefore arch enemies of Islam. Furthermore, Muslims are obliged to reconquer Islamic lands once they were under Islamic rule. This is our problem, but also Europe’s problem, your problem. Parts of Europe were also under Muslim rule throughout history.

So, it’s not us who should be afraid of the pro-Palestinian demonstrations, but you should be afraid of the Arab masses on your streets. These Arabs are your neighbors, not ours. We have to get along with our Arab neighbors, you with yours. And just as we now have to rethink, you urgently need to rethink. “From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free” must be a warning to Europe and America. For years, radical Muslims in Europe have been talking about liberating Europe from the hands of Christians. I know many people don’t want to believe it, and we didn’t want to believe it, either. But then barbaric Muslims slaughtered over 1,400 of our people in the name of Allah.

  1. Vernon Ryan says:

    The biggest problem the people who stand with Gaza have, is the fact none of them have lived the reality that those who live in Israel have lived in over the last 75 years.
    People who don’t live in reality will believe anything if it is sugar coated with enough sugar. Anyone with any smarts what so ever can see Israel is not the evil one, today, or any time in the past.

  2. Masami Cobley says:

    I totally agree with you on this. I’ve been saying and writing to my Christian friends about these things but …. Sadly, many Christians in the UK and Europe may believe in the reality of those fanatic Allah worshippers only when they see a carnage in their own eyes….

  3. Lois Heal Bright says:

    It is so important that we recognize God’s tremendous love for our world in giving His Son, Jesus, who shed His blood for the sins of our world, and who, rising from death, is seated today at His Father’s right hand. (Hebrews 1:1-3) When we cry out “Jesus, I love you–please forgive my sins”, God responds!

  4. Disciple 1978 says:

    God destroys wickedness. [Deut 9:4] This was true of Noah’s generation, Sodom, Canaan and many others. Gaza is being divinely destroyed because of its wickedness. Israel is well aware of this principle and watches itself. The nations have forgot this divine principle and have become ever more secular. Idolatry is rife in the nations as the “Free Self” is enshrined into various laws, and mankind being principally known as images of God is publicly refuted.
    Jesus said we would always have the poor among us, Matt 26:11, and as the world is filled with despotic regimes the West has become a magnet for economic migrants. They bring their spiritual and cultural poverty with them so that economic sustenance has little impact on the roots of their poverty.
    In the meantime the nations and their media ignore the spiritual consequences of wickedness and rail against God for judging wickedness. The world is being prepared for judgement and they are obviously not ready.
