When King Belshazzar sought an interpretation of the writing on the wall he was perplexed and in fear for his life as no one could interpret what had been written except for one man Daniel a Jew who told the King the meaning of what was written.

Daniel said G-d had numbered the Kings days and his Kingdom was at an end. He had been weighed in the balance and found wanting; his kingdom was to be divided and given to others. (Daniel 5:5-28).

As with the downfall of King Belshazzar and his corrosive kingdom Western Civilization is disintegrating faster than one could have ever imagined only a few years ago. Its intellectual edifice no longer holds sway over its young who discard logic, dogma, discipline and its history and are prepared to replace one failed ideology with another already discredited in the twentieth century.

Europe has all but surrendered to the inevitability of cultural suicide and what that portends for its future and now we are witnessing the writing on the wall for the United States of America as she finds her self challenged by the new dogmas of identity politics and this not from outside its borders but within the very institutions set up to safeguard American values, interests and hegemony.

These national institutions are joining hands with mobocracy in an effort to undermine its systems of government, economics, social and political system. No longer is anything sacred or beyond the reach of the new Jacobins.

Why? because Americans are disillusioned, demoralized and weighed down with pessimism and many have chosen the depths of depravity and many more are on the verge of doing so. As consequence drugs, crime, gratuitous violence, immorality, pornography, and the acceptance of homosexuality as the new normal accompanied by an anti-authority demeanour, and the discrediting of the family unit as a positive in society.

All this and more conspire to divide and destroy the American nation leaving it vulnerable to attack from its enemies and competitors.

The new American brand of socialism is undermining America profoundly as it promotes its false ideology that man is an economic animal in pursuit of happiness for happiness sake and with the overthrow of capitalist, America nirvana will have been achieved.

This, in a nutshell, is the nonsense being peddled by the likes of Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Elizabeth Warren.

It would serve us well not to dismiss these socialist provocateurs out of hand as they are currently setting the agenda for the Democratic party and have Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his Vice-presidential running mate Kamala Harris safely tucked away in the socialist camp.

These modern-day Jacobins bring a mixture of identity politics and cultural socialism to the table with no less enthusiasm for their cause than Robespierre brought to the ‘Bloody Reign of Terror!’ during the French Revolution.

These leftists know how to propagate emotional fear within the hearts and minds of a disconnected populace and go about their job with efficiency and enthusiasm.

How long before they turn their sights on Americas Jews a natural target for their vitriol and worse?

Not long as the writing is on the wall!

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
