Anti-Semitism is running rampant in Germany Primary Schools, according to Heinz-Peter Meidinger, President of Germany's Teacher Assoc. Videos of ISIS doing be-headings are said to be commonplace in German schools. Female pupils are being threatened with murder. It is becoming unsafe for non-Muslim students to attend school, as they are threatened with death. At Spreewald Elementary School in Berlin, hired security guards are protecting both teacher and non-believer students from unruly Muslim students. ( How long before this might happen in the U.S. Schools? Similar things happened in 1930's Germany, but in this case it was Nazism and all to soon enough the Jews were transported to Death Camps, Is history repeating itself?
That's all the news for now. I just got off the phone from our son, James, who ships out tomorrow for the Arabian world. He's on the east coast right now. As a Captain in the Air Force, his lodgings over there should be pretty easy and its a 6-month tour. His daughters will be a little bit bigger, but with today's technology, communication with his family will be somewhat easier, then when us oldsters were overseas in the early 1970's. We were allowed free mail for writing letters home, but I can only imagine how many marriages might have survived with what these kids have today. I'm so glad he can have such contact with his wife and 3 daughters. Only problem is the time difference.
All for now. God bless everyone. BILL
