Europe and, to a lesser extent the United States, have voluntarily disavowed God and faded into the dark night of hellish alienation.
Liberal-progressivism’s pursuit of one-world, Godless socialistic government inescapably reduces every person to soulless equality with no meaning apart from the will of the political state. In this Brave New World, history and tradition are thrust aside. Clinging to standards of culture and morality become anti-social crimes.
As I wrote earlier:
Europeans, before the evolution of strong nation states in the 16th century, thought of themselves as inhabitants of Christendom. It is thus accurate to assert that everything that we know as western civilization is an exclusive product of Christianity emanating from the church at Rome.
What went wrong?
The short answer is the French Revolution of 1789.
That cataclysmic event destroyed Christian civilization and instituted the secular, materialistic religion of socialism, first in France, then throughout Europe.

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Josee Chiasson, a York University student in Toronto completing an Honours Bachelor’s Degree in psychology. She wrote her undergraduate thesis about the influence of media bias on group attitudes towards Israelis. She is a recipient of the 2010 Israel Experience College Scholarship. In her capacity as immediate past President of Christians United for Israel at York University, she fought for Israel by trying to change the name of Israel ‘Apartheid’ Week to Middle-East Peace week and by educating and mobilizing other students in support for Israel on campus. Josee has spoken on student panels as well: she has appeared on MENCHlife and has written an article for the Prince Arthur Herald addressing the politics at York and the administration’s responsibilities.
FP: Josee Chiasson, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
Before we get into all your courageous efforts on behalf of Israel, first give us a bit of background about yourself. How did you come to being so passionate about the issues you are involved in?
by The Anti-Jihadist:
For most Americans and those reading this, the nation of Malaysia–the country I call home–is likely nothing more but a mysterious, distant, small and relatively unimportant land. Some of you might be familiar with Malaysia’s carefully cultivated public image of being some sort of harmonious multicultural tropical paradise, which is recycled endlessly in 30-second-long television spots both here and overseas.
But for anyone who may be trying to come to grips with the grim reality that is Islam, Malaysia may be one of the most important places on the planet. That’s because anyone who still, despite all the evidence, feels that there really is a moderate, progressive, tolerant and peaceful Islam, need look no further than Malaysia. Once you do, you’ll be thoroughly disabused of this notion.
My own awakening to Islam is mostly a tale of ignorance and more than whiff of denial, punctuated by sudden, shattering and irreversible epiphanies. I say ‘shattering’ because the ideas that I embraced as I grew up–that Islam is just one religion of many, and doesn’t particularly pose a threat to anyone–does not withstand anything more than a cursory examination of the facts. And as the evidence piled up and my doubts grew, those old notions I had held previously, like a sheet of plate glass, came apart under the hammer blows of truth.

Stripped of any international legitimacy due to the massacre of unarmed civilians which has continued for 12 weeks, Assad’s regime has contrived a duplicitous formula by which it hopes to survive: get the Syrian people to blame Israel for Assad’s continued rule.
The regime is so certain of its new strategy it has been telling the world — via its supporters abroad and certain CIA analysts — that Assad will survive.
The Reform Party of Syria had noticed this strategy developing via Facebook postings. When Syrians realized the world showed little interest in forcing regime change, they looked for someone to blame: Iranian and Hezbollah flags were burned. However, pro-Assad Facebook infiltrators kept pointing the finger at Israel, and this has had an effect despite the argument’s total absurdity.

A provincial council in Scotland has announced a ban on Israeli books as part of a politically-motivated boycott on all goods and produce from Israel. The move is just the latest effort by pro-Palestinian activists in Europe to implement a fast-growing strategy that uses anti-Israel boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) to isolate, demonize and delegitimize the State of Israel.
Although the BDS campaign targeting Israel is nothing new (it is rooted in the program of political warfare to achieve the “complete international isolation of Israel” that was launched at the UN World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa in 2001), it is picking up pace across Europe.
by John Nolte:
What an indictment of the mainstream media that in order to present to the public the missing pieces of a major political figure’s governing record, an independent filmmaker has to drop a cool million of his own dollars. While our corrupt journalist-class is (at this very moment) out trashing Governor Palin’s children, blaming her for their own acts of public urination and proving they know nothing about Paul Revere (or Google), writer/director Steve Bannon is putting the final touches on “The Undefeated” (this is a review of a rough cut), a feature-length documentary that does the MSM’s job for them — tells the intentionally ignored and buried stories of Sarah Palin’s two decades as an unconventional but very effective public official. Unless you’ve read the Governor’s autobiography “Going Rogue,” anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty will find it impossible to sit through this film and not ask themselves, “Why haven’t I been told this?”
by Simon Plosker:
Once again a flood of headlines present Israel as an aggressor responsible for the deaths of dozens of unarmed civilians. Was this really a peaceful protest or another Syrian-engineered attempt to breach Israel’s border? Where did the media get it right and where did it go wrong?
Syrian Media: A Credible Source?
For many weeks, Syrian state controlled media (and it is all state controlled) has failed to report on President Bashar Assad’s brutal and murderous assault his own citizens’ peaceful protests against the Syrian regime. So why then did the media rush to quote casualty figures provided by Syrian media despite the lack of any concrete confirmation of the number of deaths or injuries from either side?

Watch Documentary of the “44th Anniversary of The 6 Day War”
Full BBC documentary on Six Day War which is a good reflection of what happened, however there are a few inaccuracies. First, not one Arab Home was demolished during the War of 1967, as House demolitions only started when Suicide Bombing and illegal construction without building permits became common in Judea and Samaria a few decades later but never during or after the 1967 Six day War. Secondly the film underplays and hardly mentions the buildup to the war and the jew hatred spewed by President Nasser and the “Arab Street”. The film also overplays the refugee issue of the Palestinians and fails to mention that in 1947/48 over 26,000 Jewish refugees were created when the Jordanians over ran Judea and Samaria. Further nearly one million Jewish refugees were caused by Arab ethnic cleansing between 1948 and 1973. Today All Arab countries except Morocco are Judenrein when prior to 1948 there was over a million jews living in Arab countries. Purchase “The Silent Exodus” which tells their story.
