Op-Ed: To the Irish Teachers Union: Sins Cast Long Shadows
In the words of Kevin O’Neill, “Kindliness combined with unique native wit and the courage to go and do business with the world have been the trademarks of the Irish character. The Irish have never been known, like so many other nations, to retire from the world, to withdraw, to hide.” Yet this is the process you have begun.
As the Teacher’s Union has relinquished its freedoms of thought, learning, research and growth in the interest of healing illusory Islamic wounds, are you aware that you are also a collaborator in the destruction of Ireland?
While violent jihadists pursue the Koranic dictates to kill the unbelievers, stealth is facilely implemented within Europe and the Americas. Stealth, aka civilizational jihad, is a system of lies (taqiyyah), persuasion and incremental restrictions that the invading entity imposes on the host culture by claiming victimization. By insisting that words or expressions are offensive – the very vehicles of thought and ideas – freedom of speech is purloined and societies transformed.
By “ceasing all cultural and academic collaboration with Israel, including the exchange of scientists, students and academic personalities, and the cooperation in research programs,” you have taken a step backward in time to the 7th century of Mohammed and the evil decrees set forth in their Koran.
Perhaps you do bear a deep-seated desire to assist in the Islamic effort to destroy Israel with a fallacious “apartheid” label. Israel, the only Jewish homeland on the planet is, in point of fact, home to citizens of every race, religion, and national origin, yet no one addresses the Islamic regimes where Jews and Christians are either expelled, converted by force, enslaved or killed – or the communist regimes of China and Cuba where freedoms are considerably limited.
With this boycott, did you also intend to betray your teachers’ and students’ rights to a more complete education and their desire to be part of Ireland’s progress in the 21st century? Ireland’s history shows your ancestors fought bravely for their right to exist, yet you have joined a war whose goal is to thwart Israel’s right to exist as a tiny, sovereign, dynamic nation amid two dozen hostile Islamic states’ covering more than six million square miles (plus 80% of what was originally mandated for Israel).
Despite Israel’s having to defend its ~eight million citizens within her borders legally designated in 1948 and later winning a defensive battle against seven invading Arab armies, this unique global leader in innovation and entrepreneurship has managed to excel in all fields of endeavor that give purpose to life – science, technology, medicine; has more museums, orchestra and publications per capita than anywhere else in the world (whose publications are shared with other nations that are dedicated to their own development and progress).
As a leader in offering international humanitarian aid to such as Sri Lanka, Armenia, Turkey, Kosovo, Haiti, hurricans Katrina and Sandee, Israel has already rushed to Boston’s victims of the terrorist bombing. Israel is, by virtue of her morality and medical proficiency, a country that should be protected. Palestinians have excelled as the leading producer of suicide bombers and terrorists in the world (note the PLO terrorist movement in Ireland in the link).
By complying with this initial Islamic agenda, it will become increasingly difficult to defend your position later because you are losing your grip on democracy. From this one agreement will come forced subjugation and revisionism, until your culture and laws fail to protect you, and Ireland will experience what is already prevalent throughout Europe – violence, riots and bloodshed, changes in the school systems, more mosque construction, burning synagogues, desecration of churches; and danger for your citizens, yourselves, and your progeny.
Wherever Islam is allowed a toehold, freedoms are sacrificed. Sweden and Norway have the highest percentage of rapes in Europe. From Asia to Africa, worshippers are burned in their churches. In Mali, children are kidnapped and sold into slavery. In France, attacks against Jews are increasing. In England, Muslims are patrolling the streets, enforcing Sharia law. In Israel, residents live in constant fear of bus explosions and suicide bombers. Now, in Boston, it may be perils in a crowd or event. This begs the question of whether the Teachers Union complied because of sufficient recompense or fear of reprisal, and will it be worth the sacrifice of freedom to learn and thrive as a nation. Is it worth trading one’s civilization, culture, advancements, ethics and morality – even national character – for tyranny’s domination, the worship of death, the abandonment of the creativity and poetry of the Irish soul? Your forefathers knew, “Sins cast long shadows.”
In the words of our John Adams to Thomas Jefferson: “I will insist that the Hebrews have done more to civilize man than any other nation.” If Adams were here today, he might add that the Muslims have done more to destroy man than any other nation.”
They have already destroyed most of the cultures in the Middle East and 300 million inhabitants since the emergence of Mohammed, and they have now come to destroy our democracies. Rather than defend your academic freedom and independent thinking, you have succumbed to their demands – surrendered your independence, free will, and access to Israeli ingenuity and progress to the hate-driven, supercessionist culture of Islam. This will be but the first of many concessions. You have sold out the lives of your children to the inevitable cult of death and destruction. From here on in, the grip of Sharia will only get tighter.
How long before you adjust to calls of prayer five times a day, and limit your lives to the highly restrictive edicts of Islam?
How long before your Saints and Scholars – Patrick, Columba, Brendan, Aidan – are identified by Islam as true Muslims, just as they are now saying that Jesus was a Palestinian Muslim.
How long before the Book of Kells is labeled idolatrous?
How long before you can no longer teach true history because it is antithetical to the teachings of Allah?
What one loses is always more than the gain when the pact is with the Devil.
Is Ireland not up to the task of preservation for herself and for Israel? Are the Irish people not in step with their own courageous history and survival that they cannot or will not stand against tyranny’s domination?
