Jews have always been compelled to struggle against cultures that threatened to swallow up their nation. Our ancestors escaped from Egypt, fought against the idols of Canaan, then struggled against the mighty Babylonian Empire. They risked their lives to stand up for their spiritual independence in the days of the Greek Hellenists. For well over a thousand years they have withstood the barrages of the Church and of Islam.
There have always been antagonists who demanded that the Jew give in, assimilate, and “adapt” to their ways. Strident voices exhorted the Jew to conform to their “superior” society, which, its “merits” not withstanding, eventually disappeared into the void of the forgotten past.
But the Jew knew that these empires were transient, and he refused to join them. He preferred to survive.
The Jew conquered not territories, but Time. He was neither stronger than his foes, nor more numerous; nonetheless, he outlived them all.
You, the Jew of the twenty-first century, were born to share the destiny of the People who cannot die. You are the son or daughter of the eternal Jew, and carry within you the eternal Jew of the future.
Today, Western culture beckons to you, just as Egyptian society enticed your forefathers in their time, as did the philosophers of Greece and Rome, and then the champions of the Church and of Islam.
The struggle does not cease today, when a plethora of “-isms” seek to indoctrinate you to their current values. You are faced with a decision: Do you belong to Western society? Shall you be just another driven leaf, tossed once here, once there, at the whim of the winds of conformity?
Or shall you remain consistently loyal to the Jewish People, relatively few in number, but immune to death and extinction?
The choice is yours to make, for yourself, your children, and all your descendants. Get to know your heritage as a mature, well-informed adult. Be informed, and choose wisely.
