Judeo-Christian Cross

We are in a battle of civilizations today. Calmeyer was acting in a small way against an expanding Nazi empire of his own countrymen against other free nations, it was a righteous cause. Then it was an expanding Communist empire that was halted by the West. Now we are back to an empire that the West once bested and thought defeated and dormant: Islam. Islam is back, bigger than ever.

Islamists today are working to impose sharia law on the world. If that happens,  Western civilization will be destroyed. Judeo-Christian Civilization is Western Civilization as we know it, though it of course is influenced to some extent by all other cultures. Islam tries hard not to be influenced by other cultures, and while its people are hardly immune to changes from the outside, its leaders are much more willing than today’s Christian or Jewish leaders to use force to assure adherence to the Islamic faith. This is where the clash of civilizations develops: on the one hand, Judeo-Christianity threatens the purity of Islam, on the other hand, Islam is not only intentionally encroaching territorially, it does so by more rapid muslim population growth. Regardless of which sides are unwilling to compromise, the sheer inability to compromise creates conflict and ultimately war.

Today, some deepening cooperation and confluence of Jews and Christians, so often at odds in the past, is almost a necessity forced upon the two faiths by increasing threats from the outside, especially of course the rising real threat to Jews of a second Holocaust. A measure of reconciliation is theoretically plausible not just just because Jesus was a Jew and all early Christians wanted to remain Jews. Today,  Judeo-Christian solidarity is a matter of absolutely essential shared self-interest under a God that is shared in the Torah and virtually all cultural behavior. Not so with Islam, which does claim that Allah is the same God of Abraham and Ishmael, but which then conflicts massively from the Judeo-Christian culture.

Formative Phases of Judeo-Christian Civilization under various Empires:

  1. Sumerian Civilization
  2. Jewish Tribes in Biblical Israel
  3. Assyrian Empire
  4. Egyptian Civilization
  5. Greek Empire
  6. Roman Empire
  7. Ottoman Empire
  8. German Empire
  9. Judeo-Christian Civilization today

Jews have been ruled or dominated by a series of Empires punctuating their presence in the Middle East. Jewish tribes were first established in Mesopotamia/Iraq, then for a time under the Assyrians, ultimately driven to and enslaved by the Egyptians, then returning to the promised land Israel, where they mopped up the nomadic local inhabitants that are quite unrelated to the peoples that are there today (including apparently the eponymous descendants of Nefilim giants such as Goliath).

Judeo-Christian Civilization was under attack by the Nazis, who wanted to cleanse western civilization of all traces of competition with their beloved Aryan race. The Aryan genetic concept, and all the mysteries and histories built around it, was of an original white master race that had been responsible for all actual progress in the world, a form of self-worship that turned into a near-religion for the Nazis, the self-styled Master Race.

We regard western civilization as Judeo-Christian, and we should be proud of that legacy. There should be great cooperation between the two, but often this is made difficult by our being too Christian (proselytizing) or too Jewish (leave us alone) in our orientation, thinking we cannot come together in life. In life, we definitely can.

Nazis were deeply involved in working with and supporting extreme anti-Jewish groups in the Middle East. While Hans Calmeyer was perhaps not directly involved or aware of any of this, a historian as he was was aware of root causes and the battles of the ages: the necessity for extermination of the Jews was to Hitler inescapable because there was no place to put them. He was dealing with Middle Easterners who had their own Palestinian agenda and who were not about to welcome a Jewish re-settlement in Israel, who were in fact fully willing and intentional about killing all the Jews they could. The concentrations camps in some cases were used for slave labor, but they were always intended to lead to extermination, and for the convenience of not having to find a homeland for them.

as Head  of Nazi SS troops Heinrich Himmler stated to Chief of Nazi propaganda  Josef Goebbels:

“[I] have nothing against Islam because it educates the men in this  division for me and promises them heaven if they fight and are killed  in action. A very practical and attractive religion for soldiers. [xxxiv]

The struggle for humanity was real then, and remains real today. In the intervening years, the chronology of Amin Al-Hussein’s life is frighteningly relevant then and now.

An excellent introduction to the differences in perception between the Israelis and their Arab neighbors is an article by Victor David Hanson in the National Review. It is called Palestinian Pretense and Israeli Reality. You'll find it at

 If you believe what you hear on the news and media, you would think there is an entity called a Palestinian people, who lived in a country/state/area called Palestine since Canaanite/Biblical/Mohammadan times. The Israelis occupied Palestine in 1967. The Palestinians want the occupiers out of their land. And of course they are entitled to do whatever it takes to get their land back. No? No.

Here's the facts.

Who are the Palestinians? Palestinians are Arabs. They have no historical, national or cultural identity distinct from other Arabs of the region. Most of them came into Palestine in search of economic opportunities after World War 1 when the British and the Jews began to build up a land that was moribund.

What is Palestine? When the Romans conquered Judea, they renamed it Palestine. Since then, no occupying power ever made it an independent state or established a capital in Jerusalem. Under the Ottoman Empire, it was part of the province of Syria.

After World War I, the area was mandated to Britain to establish a Jewish national home. Instead, in 1922, Britain split off 75% of Palestine to establish the Emirate of Transjordan, as a throne for the Arabian Hashemite family.

The UN decided to split the rest of Palestine between Jews and Arabs. In 1948, Arab armies and volunteers - from Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Morocco - attacked the newborn State of Israel. Transjordan annexed the area intended for an Arab state, and renamed itself the Kingdom of Jordan, calling the annexed area the "West Bank". Egypt took over Gaza. No Arab suggested making the West Bank and/or Gaza into yet another Arab state until 1967, when Israel was again attacked by the Arabs and took these areas.

Whether or not she chooses to exercise the right, Israel owns the West Bank by right of conquest. She also has unassailable biblical, historical and residential claims. The Mandate to develop a Jewish state in ALL of Palestine is still in force; and the U.N. -- the legal heir to the League of Nations -- is legally obligated to help the Jews. Before 1967, the last previous legal owner was the Ottoman Empire. And Turkey, heir to the Ottomans, has never (yet) asked for it back.

 Here are some short articles that will introduce you to the History and Geography of Israel and its neighbors.

Just type "Palestine history" or "Palestinian people" or "international law" in the search box on the Home page and you can access them directly.
  • Joseph Alexander Norland has gathered some 23 articles on why a sovereign Arab state should not be carved out of Yesha (Samaria, Judea and Gaza). You can download it from the IsraPundit website either as a ZIP file or a PDF file.
  • FLAME is an organization that buys space in different magazines to present factual and well-written articles on Israel and its neighbors. Its aim is to counteract the nonsense that passes as truth in so much of the media. You can read their articles on their web site: The one in the box is entitled The Arab-Israeli Conflict.
