EU redefines 'peace' to accommodate jihad

Jihad has broken, like the first jihad,
Allah has spoken, wonders don’t cease.
Praise for the terror, praise for the jihad
Praises for Allah, Islam is peace.


With apologies to lyricist Eleanor Farjeon, and shame before those who expect a greater sense of artistry from Cranmer, this was cobbled together hastily this morning as news reached His Grace that Yusuf Islam, aka Cat Stevens, has been awarded the highest accolade in EUrabia – the ‘Mediterranean Prize for Peace’:

Yusuf is being awarded the prestigious award as a result of the work he has done to increase peace in the world… The prize is assigned each year to personalities of political, cultural, and artistic worlds that contributed with their actions to reduce tensions and begin an upgrading process of cultural differences and shared values in the area of the Greater Mediterranean.

Increasing peace? Reducing tensions? This is the man who has not merely sung innocently of mornings breaking and blackbirds singing, but supports the fatwa upon the head of Sir Salman Rushdie, believes that apostates should be put to death, and lends his support to Hamas.

The only peace expounded in the Qur’an is the socio-political peace of submission to the Shari’a, and the religio-political peace attained by submission to Allah. This is a peace of submission to Islam, and appears to constitute the EU’s new definition of ‘peace’.

Who are they to grant Islam this propaganda coup? Who are they to spout ‘peace’ where there is no peace? And why does the Heir to the Throne and future Supreme Governor of the Church of England prostrate himself before this facade? The Lord said: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.’ And this peace is such a precious jewel that it is worth everything but truth.

As the Global Politician observes: ‘Our so-called leaders through the European Union are busy selling our continent and the freedom of our children down the river, and smile while they are doing it. The only way to stop this is to dismantle the European Union. All of it. If we don't do so, and soon, Europe simply won’t survive.’

Indeed.

On this, Cranmer and His Holiness the Pope are in complete accord.

As usual, following Your Grace into wikipedia means the disappearance of a morning. But I digress. Agreed, Cat Stevens is pathetic creep, and whoever gave him an award needs their bumps felt. However, it wasn't clear to me that the EU, per se, gave this award. I believe it was made by some kind of private philanthropic club. A whacky one, indeed, and one that is perhaps as to the EU as the Bullingdon Club is to the Conservatives.

EUrabia follows Jewrope. When Christianity is replaced by Holocaustianity as the official religion of Europe and white Europeans are encouraged to believe that they, as wholly culpable persecutors of the wholly innocent Jews, should welcome their own disinheritance, what else can one expect? His Grace in pre-incineration days would have recognized the vengefulness of the Deicides and the hatred they bear for Christianity; today, alas, he has succumbed to their propaganda and allies himself with them in their war on Islam, which should be none of our concern. But thanks to mass immigration, we've imported an Oriental quarrel.

King Aethelbald,

Yes, yes, yes, His Grace knew that the 'EU' was not directly implicated, but he wouldn't mind betting there are EU funds somewhere slushing around and contributing to the propagation of this award.

Mr Nedsherry,

His Grace has succumbed to no such thing. The 'war' against Islam, as you put it, is not solely the preserve of the Jews, and the assertion that it is 'none of our concern' is redolent of the tendency of the struthio camelus towards esconcing its pate in siliceous grit.

As for Holocaustianity, the rubbish promoted by the immoral and the PC and the university educated (I use that perjoratively these days) is indeed pernicious.

Because they are freedom hating structuralists they don't see the Nazism as immoral - they believe it springs from structure instead. Like any good Marxist.

It's not that mass-murder is the problem, it's the whole concept of country that's to blame. They base themselves not on bad actions but on structure.

Maybe someone should tell dear Cat Stevens that I recently chose his song with the original words for the assembly at the mixed Jaffa School here in Zionist Israel - most of the staff Jewish and Zionist - most of the pupils Arabs (mainly Christian; 40% Muslim; the rest offspring of embassy staff).

And yes, we know that Cat hates our guts, but we still went ahead with it.

Turning the other cheek, and all that - after all Jesus was Jewish, wasn't he?

His Grace has acted with greater celerity than a cyanopygous dipteron to insert lexical items in my buccal cavity. I didn't say it is none of our concern, but this:

...their [sc. the Jews'] war on Islam, which should be none of our concern. But thanks to mass immigration, we've imported an Oriental quarrel.

By "should be" I meant "would ideally be". Alas, mass immigration has destroyed any possibility of attaining that ideal, because Muslims now inhabit the same land as we do. Mass immigration was never attractive to the white Christian majority in Europe, as one would expect. I can, however, think of a non-Christian, and indeed anti-Christian, minority who found it very attractive. As again one would expect.

Turning the other cheek, and all that - after all Jesus was Jewish, wasn't he?

Are you claiming Jesus is respected among and influential on Jews because he was Jewish? Jews have had a funny way of showing it for the past 2,000 years. In any case, he was from Galilee of the Goiim.

The exclusion of Christians of Jewish origins from both congregations and the ministry was accompanied by attempts to purge Christianity of Jewish elements. A process whose consequences were analogous to removing all vital organs in the interests of saving the patient. Few German Christians grasped that this was preparatory, once the Jews had gone, to eradicating Christianity itself. The Old Testament was decanonised, while the Gospels were rewritten to establish that Jesus was not a Jew,' the crassest example being that no Jews worked as carpenters. His ethnicity was rearranged, either by describing him as an Aryan or by positing that 'Galileans' were not' Jews. His troubles with Pharisees and actions against usurers were viewed through an anti-Semitic lens. Broadly speaking, a compassionate, suffering Christ was replaced by an angry purger of usurers, or a universal soldier, as the German Christians 'redeemed the Redeemer'. This was the next best thing to following Hitler in obliterating Christ altogether. The Fuhrer talked a lot about God, rarely about •the Saviour. If Christ was not immune to reinterpretation, nor were core Christian concepts. Sin was found to be an inconvenience. As the SS journal Schwarze Korps explained: 'The abstruse doctrine of Original Sin, whence the need of salvation is said to arise; the Fall - and indeed the whole notion of sin as set forth by the Church, involving reward or punishment in a world beyond - is something intolerable to Nordic man, . Since it is incompatible with the "heroic" ideology of our blood.' This was part of a wider 'purification of .our Volksoul ... from the diseases caused by Jewish contamination ... one of which is

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

Of course Jesus was Jewish despite many attempts by antisemites to deny this.

More than this, I think that about 85% of the New Testament is pure Judaism, the other 15% being an attempt by the new religion to divorce itself from its mother religion, the result being 2000 years of attempted extermination of the Jews.

As for the Pharisees, they are the most misunderstood group in the entire history of the world. I recommend E. Urbach's 'The Sages: their Concepts and Beliefs' as the best book on the subject.

I shall be blogging on the subject of the Pharisees in the next few weeks.

"Islam is an illogical doctrine that is based on fear and is defended through honor. This makes Islam more dangerous than Nazism. Muslims are not concerned about the irrationality of Islam or about good or evil. They are mostly concerned about losing face and upholding the image of Islam.

One fact we must all agree on is that brute force is stronger than civility. If you and I confront each other and I use violence against you while you try to reason with me, I will win and you will lose. The reason Muslims have won since the time of Muhammad is because the non-Muslims were reluctant to resort to violence while Muslims were always ready to do so. The reason we live in freedom today is because the Europeans responded to Muslim barbarity with equal savagery. If not for the crusaders, we probably would not be free today."

America and the Restoration of Israel
By Alan Caruba

In Iran and throughout the Palestinian territories, Persians and Arabs poured into the streets on October 5th otherwise known as “Al-Quds” day. They shouted “death to Israel” and “death to the U.S.” The Arabic name for Jerusalem is Al-Quds.

At one point, that poisonous viper, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, speaking at Tehran University, said, “Europeans cannot tolerate the Zionists in their region and country, but they want to impose them on the people of the region”, meaning the nation of Israel. “Give these vast lands of Canada and Alaska to them to create a country for themselves,” he said.

Ahmadinejad, who fancies himself a scholar, is an ignorant fool who, if he knew anything of history would have to begin by acknowledging that more than two thousand years before Islam was invented by Mohammed, Israel had been home to the Jews and that, not once, but twice they had built the temple in Jerusalem, its capitol.

He would also know that the Temple Mount was and is the holiest site in Jerusalem for the Jews, but with the customary arrogance of Islam, it was where, having conquered the city they choose to build their mosque. Accept for conquest, Arabs, i.e., Muslims, have no claim whatever on Jerusalem, nor on Israel.

Not once in the Koran, Islam’s holy book, is Jerusalem ever mentioned!

Yet Muslims lay claim to Jerusalem with the absurd story that Mohammed flew there on his horse one evening and communed with the long dead prophets of Israel and Christianity. For a while, Mohammed commanded that early Muslims face Jerusalem when they prayed in the hope he could convert the Jewish tribes residing in Arabia. When that failed, he commanded that Muslims face Mecca. And he attacked and slaughtered the Jews.

Yet Ahmadinejad has the gall to suggest that Jerusalem and Israel does not rightfully belong to the Jewish people as a Jewish nation.

This ignorant fool does not know that one of the earliest religious movements in America was for the restoration of Israel to the Jews! On October 31, 1819, in Boston’s Old South Church, Levi Parsons took the pulpit to offer a sermon. “They who taught us the way to salvation were Jews,” he began. “Our God was their God. Our heaven is their heaven.” Parsons said that, were the Ottoman (Muslim) occupation of Palestine were to vanish, “nothing but a miracle would prevent their [the Jews] immediate return.”

An indelible part of American history are the Christian missionaries who went to the Middle East to perform deeds of righteousness so that the Jews would be enticed to return home and “receive Him”, that is to say, Jesus. As historian Michael B. Oren writes in his book, Power, Faith, and Fantasy, “The emergence of a Messianic Jewish polity in Palestine would fulfill the conditions necessary for the Second Coming, Parsons affirmed.”

The very earliest settlers of America, the Pilgrims, saw themselves as an extension of the Jewish faith. “Come let us declare in Zion the word of God,” proclaimed William Bradford, the future governor of the Plymouth Colony, as he stepped off the Mayflower in 1620. For him, the new land was a Zion in which the much-persecuted Pilgrims could worship freely, drawing their faith as much from the Old Testament as the New.

Many a missionary suffered and died for the belief that Jerusalem was and is the capitol of the Jewish State, Israel.

Long after Ahmadinejad is dead and freedom is restored to the Iranian people, there will be Jews in Israel and the long history of America’s belief in the rights of Jews to live there will continue.

The Temple is not the only sacred site of a genuine religion to have been defiled by these paedo-worshipping cultists. Read how they attempt to 'humiliate' the Buddhists at Bodh Gaya. (Humiliation of the kuffar is one of their main objectives - almost as important as killing them. In fact, it is usual to humiliate captive kuffars before beheading them, as any jihad-snuff video will show)

I hope His Grace will consider those words carefully, because they are a perfect example of Jewish Christophobia. People who think like that are not friends of a Christian nation or its inhabitants.

Dr L, Christians had Jews at their mercy for a very long time. If they had wanted to exterminate them, they could have easily done so. They didn't. Instead, Christians preferred to isolate Jews and from time to time to expel them. The Jewish response was to agitate to live once more among their Christian persecutors. Isn't that a rather odd way to behave if Christians were bent on exterminating them? When Jews had the upper hand, on the other hand, as during the communist revolution, they certainly committed mass murder of Christians. Any communists in your family, by the way? I would be very surprised if there weren't.

Sorry, Ned Sherry, you are wrong on nearly all counts, but your insinuations are even worse than your errors.

The fact is that the 4 gospels are contradictory, not just complementary, that Judaism is misunderstood by St. Paul (who did not live in the centre of Jewish life) and that the NT was written with the anti-Jewish pagan Romans in mind.

It is well known that when throwing Jewish victims into the pits during the Second World War, Einsatz commanders would exclaim: 'We are doing Martin Luther's work for him'.

If German Christians admit this, and if the previous Pope admitted Catholic compliance in genocide of the Jews, what is your problem?

Finally, why shouldn't Jews want to live among others? Jews tend to have a civilising effect on the countries where they live.

Mind you, so many are fed up with what is going on in Europe at present that they are opting to take on a lower standard of living in Israel.

Because, as you will surely know: 'Man does not live by bread alone'.

Incidentally, Jews were banned from England in the time of His Grace, but His Grace used the brains of Italian Jews to effect his divorce from Catherine of Aragon and his subsequent marriage to Anne Boleyn.

You see, more Jews could understand the biblical law on marriage and divorce in the original Hebrew than did contemporary Christians, who were not allowed to mix with Jews at all, in case they became tainted.

You would probably have enjoyed it in those days.

You seem to be mistaking me for a Christian. Both Old and New Testaments are contradictory and full of borrowings from paganism.

It is well known that when throwing Jewish victims into the pits during the Second World War, Einsatz commanders would exclaim: 'We are doing Martin Luther's work for him'.

Why didn't Martin Luther carry out his own work? Why was there any work left for him to do? If Christians could expel Jews at will, they could also have exterminated them at will. It never happened. You're wrong, but won't of course admit it.

If German Christians admit this, and if the previous Pope admitted Catholic compliance in genocide of the Jews, what is your problem?

My problem is that you haven't explained why the extermination wasn't carried out long before that. And can you quote what the previous pope said? And say whether there were communists in your family?

Finally, why shouldn't Jews want to live among others?

Because the "others" were, according to you, trying to exterminate them.

Jews tend to have a civilising effect on the countries where they live.

No, Jews tend to have a destructive effect, e.g. Marx and Freud. Both have been hugely harmful and both set out to attack Christianity.

Dr. Irene Lancaster, with respect I don’t think you are wholly correct in your assessment of the NT. The four gospels were each written for a distinct target audience (have you ever wondered why there were four that nearly all said the same thing), not all were written for the pagan Romans. For example Matthews’s gospel was written for the Jew, this can be supported because the Jews understood the Mosaic Law and alone this book has 129 OT references. The gospel of Mark (disciple of Peter) was written with the Gentiles/Roman pagans in mind, it was originally written in Latin and believed to be sourced in Rome. Luke’s gospel (he knew Mark) was written for the Greeks probably by a Greek, Luke uniquely used medical and social references which were not used in any of the other gospels esp in referring to the virgin birth and most likely he was a doctor. Finally John, John wrote for the new Christians and Roman gentile and is thought to be the last of the gospel written about 80 – 100 AD.

The first three (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) are the synoptic gospels (Greek meaning “seeing with the same eyes") because they are so similar they often recount the same stories about Jesus in the same order and phrasing, generally follow the same sequence and often use the same or similar wording. John however focuses on Jesus' divine purpose as the savour of mankind, distinctively in John Jesus talks at length about himself.

It is unsurprising the gospels are constructed with a predominantly Jewish outlook considering their source, the early followers of Jesus after the resurrection, sheltered under the privilege of not having to worship idols or Roman gods, afforded to the Jews in general under Roman law. This was a particular irritant to the majority of (non Jesus) Jews who persecuted their wayward brethren (see Paul Rd to Damascus) and tried to have this particular dispensation rescinded so they could be persecuted under Roman as well as temple law, how times have changed..

Their wish was granted after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD but unfortunately for them, to all Jews everywhere. The wealth of the Temple was looted and used to pay for the construction of the Flavian Amphitheatre (Roman Coliseum) by Emperor Vespasian. He used the newly captured Jewish slave labour to build it, so some of its first victims were OT Jews during construction, later to be succeeded by NT Jews/Christian Martyrs. Now there is a kind of paradoxical symmetry to that don’t you agree?

Freud not only respected the Catholic Church but was taken along to it regularly as a child by his Catholic nanny.
