If you’re Jewish, the number ‘6 million’ means something. You don’t even have to be Jewish to know what ‘the 6 million’ means.
It means, Jews. It refers to the 6 million Jews who were murdered by Nazi Germany in the Holocaust, 1940-1945. It’s a number we remember because it’s the single greatest example of genocide ever documented.
For decades, we all thought that, ‘6 million’ had to do with Germany’s past. That’s no longer true. Today, it refers to Germany’s future. It refers to Germany’s destiny.
Our Heritage teaches that HaShem, the G-d of Israel, often punishes through a concept called, measure-for-measure: through the same way you have sinned, so shall you be punished. The Gemara (Sotah 11a) describes how the Pharaoh of ancient Egypt sought to destroy the Jews by having their children thrown into the water of the Nile. So was he punished, measure-for-measure, by the water of the Sea of Reeds.
You probably know the story: the Jews left Egypt. Pharaoh pursued them. He saw the Sea of Reeds split. He chased the Jews onto the dry sea bed just before the waters crashed down upon his army. He sinned with--and was punished by--water.
Since the summer, 2015, we’ve seen another ‘sea’ story. But this ‘sea’ story isn’t about the Sea of Reeds. It’s about the ocean of migrants who have been crossing into Europe from the Levant—and from beyond the Levant.
More than a million Muslims have streamed across Europe’s borders into Germany. Almost alone among EU nations, Germany welcomes them eagerly.
It wants this sea of migrants. It committed to accepting 800,000 of them in 2015.
But that’s not what’s happened in Germany. By November, 2015, some 1.5 million migrants had arrived. Everyone expects more in 2016 (Soeren Kern, “Germany: 20 Million Muslims by 2020", gatestoneinstitute, November 1, 2015).
At first, Germany had reason to welcome these migrants. Germany doesn’t have enough workers to keep the engines of its economy going. Without more births, Germany appears to have no future. Without more young men, Germany would appear to be running out of candidates to train for factory work.
Germany wants a higher birth rate. It wants new blood.
With these migrants, it will get a higher birth rate. It will see new blood (Jack Engelhard, “Germany Replenishes Itself With 6 Million Muslims”, Arutz Sheva, September 3, 2015).
Germany saw these Muslim migrants as ‘an opportunity’ (Daniel Greenfield, “Muslim migrants increase crime in Germany by 65%”, frontpagemag, October 8, 2015). But then, nobody thought to ask if these Muslims were interested in Germany’s non-Muslim education system. No one thought to ask if these migrants wanted to work on infidel-run factory floors. Nobody thought to ask if these migrants even liked living under a Westernized German legal system (Hazel Torres, “German terror fears mount as thousands of Muslim migrants 'disappear' from camps” christianworld, November 1, 2015).
In January, 2015, Germany was home to more than 5 million Muslims (Michael Holtz, “Muslims in Europe: the misperceptions, and the facts”, csmonitor, January 19, 2015). Since then, the Muslim flood has meant that 2015 will be the year Germany became host to 6 million Muslims.
Germany seals its destiny with this ‘6 million’:
-Instead of Muslims integrating into Germany’s culture, as one would expect with emigrants, Germany yields to Islam (Paul Watson, “German schools abolish Christian festival to avoid offending Muslim migrants” infowars, November 2, 2015).
-German hospitals have increased security to protect doctors and nurses from violent attacks by migrants who are unhappy with the medical treatment they are receiving (Soeren Kern, “Germany: Migration Crisis Becomes Public Health Crisis”, gatestoneinstitute, November 8, 2015).
-In addition to massive economic and social costs, Germany faces significant crime-rate increases because of migrant-initiated crime (ibid).
-Because of the influx of migrants from outside Europe, Germans face an unprecedented risk of exposure to exotic diseases, some of which Germany has never seen--and to tuberculosis (ibid).
-Germany’s healthcare system has been overwhelmed by the mass of migrants seeking medical treatment (ibid).
-Germany faces a rape epidemic brought to it by young male Muslim migrants (Soeren Kern, “Germany: Migrants' Rape Epidemic”, gatestoneinstitute, September 18, 2015).
-Germany’s middle class threatens to become ‘radicalized’ in response to the migrants (Paul Watson, “Muslim migrants invited to take over German church; altar, cross, pulpit removed”, freeamericanmedia, November 9, 2015).
-Muslims in Germany put up signs that frighten Germans: “Muslims in Germany: your children will pray to allah or die”, infowars, November 5, 2015.
This new 6 million appear destined to push Germany over the edge. If that happens, Germany will be broken. It will be punished, measure-for-measure. The Muslim 6 million will punish Germany for the Jewish 6 million.
HaShem is real. He never forgets. He knows exactly what ‘poetic justice’ means.
