Many Israelis were angered and disturbed by Sweden’s recent perplexing, yet bold move, declaring its recognition of a State of Palestine that never existed, doesn’t exist, and doesn't deserve to exist. Why would Sweden choose to be the first country to go on record as politically supporting what would undeniably become another Islamic terrorist state? Why would a country known for its liberated women, choose to become the first European country to encourage the rise of what would certainly be another repressive Islamic country with laws allowing men to beat their wives, to have multiple wives, and to rape underage girls?

Israel will survive this political travesty, but Sweden is in trouble. After a recent speaking tour in the formerly “blond” country, I am more convinced than ever that something must be done quickly, if Sweden, a country whose indigenous population has almost stopped having children, is to prevent being overrun by its rapidly growing Muslim population. The situation is no better in many other countries in Western Europe, where 20-25% Muslim populations are becoming more common in many cities, where street crime is rampant, and where police don’t dare to tread. The impending Islamic takeover of nuclear Europe does not bode well for the cause of freedom in the rest of the world either, not for women, not for men and children, nor for anyone who believes in freedom and tolerance.

So how is this connected to the Swedish recognition of Israel? The decision to recognize “Palestine” was no doubt influenced by the sharp increase in the amount of Muslim voters in that Scandinavian nation and the leftist Social Democrats’ perceived need to pander to that population.

However, the problem is much deeper and is clearly evident throughout Europe and the United States, in fact throughout all of Western civilization. There is a strange sort of unofficial collusion between secular leftists and Islamic ideologues. This seemingly inexplicable partnership can be seen in the universities, in the media, in politics, and on the streets.  The Left wants a modified secular communism/socialism or a free-wheeling hedonism in which anything goes and truth is in the eye of the beholder. Islam, on the other hand, wants only to change Western civilization into an Islamic civilization.

And that is the key binding element. Both the secular Left and the Islamic ideologues want to bring down Judeo-Christian civilization in the short term. They will worry about their sharp differences later on. Israel, being the cradle of Western civilization with its proud and growing Jewish identity and its manifest prophecy in action, is perceived as an obstacle in the way of the goal of those two extreme self-destructive forces that are rising in the West.

The problem for the near-sighted secular leftists in Sweden and elsewhere is that once the sons of Ishmael have attained power, they will rape, slaughter, and behead their non-Muslim countrymen and women, just as they have done in the Middle East to the Jews and to anyone else who gets in their way. Sadly, the Jewish value of mercy is unheard of in the religion of “Jihad”.

A Europe that wants to survive the Islamic demographic nightmare that awaits it, needs a more sensible strategy than pathetically pandering for votes on the road to national suicide. Sweden and the rest of Western civilization would be very wise to reconnect with the biblical roots of Western Civilization, The best way to do that is by firmly bonding with the biblical nation - with Israel and the Jewish people - standing with us as we confront our enemies, and showing respect for Israel's heritage.

The road to Western survival runs through Israel.
