This Wall Saves Lives

Last week we wrote about St James Church in Piccadilly, London that’s built a replica of the security barrier we have in Israel. You know, the one that has dramatically helped reduce the number of our children blown to bits on buses, in discos and in pizza restaurants.

Update: Dave has posted an incredibly strong letter from Kay Wilson, who survived being stabbed multiple times by Palestinian terrorists, to the church hosting this abomination.

If I was running Israel (or the world) I’d have shipped over one of the exploded buses that we sent to US campuses a few years back and parked it next to their life saving wall.

It appears they have encouraged people to come along and write suitable graffiti messages on their wall.

I say suitable of course: read this Facebook status (shared with friends so this link won’t work for all) from some friends of mine:

Sharon and Lesley again at the St James market place today armed with our bag of acrylic paint and wall brush.

With no support from anybody the sense was one of antagonism, being watched as we were by the wardens present it seemed, in case we dared to write on the wall. Seeing our paint Tom, a St James warden approached us to say we could only use their now worn out felt pens. Explaining the uselessness of those pens and the fact that others had used spray paint Debbie, another warden said she’d get us some of theirs. Returning a while later she produced grey – the shade they use to obliterate posts they don’t approve of. In the end Tom told me I could paint one message on a designated spot, provided I was professional and refrained from being abusive. Odd that seeing that others could write what and where they wanted as many times as they wanted!

So I painted This Wall Saves Lives, started to write that 1340 Israeli citizens have died as a result of terrorist attacks since 2000, but Tom’s space and location didn’t permit!

    You DO realize that’s precisely what they object to, don’t you?

      Considering that many of those “activists” ally with professional Jew-haters…
      I wonder how those monsters will try to sell us their new Holocaust.

    They are already selling us their holocaust of the 21st century and as usual the Jews don’t notice and the rest of the world silently concurs. If you read contemporary diaries like Haffner’s “Defying Hitler” and Sebastian’s “Journal 1935-1944″ you’d realise the insidious repeat of the grass roots anti Jewish industrial growth that culminated in the Final Solution and you’d be able to identify all the traits that are present in modern day societies across the globe. The only difference now is the perpetrator is Islamic ideology instead of Nazi ideology, but the aim is the same. And they get away with it because those of us who try in whatever way to highlight this progressive onslaught that will not have a pretty end if we stay passive, are called all sorts of names ranging from right wing to racist and some, particularly by the left who buy into the propaganda to massage their illogical innate hatred of all things Jewish and satiate their love for all things Arabian. Of course they don’t realise just what will happen to these Christians like the good people of St James once the Jews have been dealt with as they refuse to take note of the desecration and burning of churches across the Islamic world, of the Allahu Akbars not only on Bethlehem, but in the streets of every major city in Europe and the USA. They don’t understand that the street occupation in the capital cities of the world for Islamic prayer is the message they bring of Islamic ownership of all land. And our leaders and law enforcers protect their right to this claim in terms of the freedom democracy affords them, democracy they do not grant anybody once they have ousted the next civilisation.
