About 1000 Jews were housed at Ft Ontario, located in Oswego, NY beginning in 1944

"The United States admitted 400,000 displaced persons between 1945 and 1952. Approximately 96,000 (roughly 24 percent) of them were Jews who had survived the Holocaust."

The SS Navemar brought 1120 Jewish refugees to the US in 1941.

FYI The St Louis was also turned away by Cuba and Canada.

These too, Brother David!! These, too!!!

But don't get me wrong when I say this------more that "saving" the British Empire(they themselves will still swear to this day they didn't need any help from the US in defeating the Krauts!!) ----- US Troops were sent to Europe for the same reason they were already fighting in the South Pacific----and that was for the sole purpose of

THE TOTAL DEFEAT OF ALL ENEMY FORCES!!!!! Both in the ETO and PTO!! And stretching literally to the 4 corners of the world!!

Because the world might be a safer place. There is no reason it might be more dangerous.

In 1947 there were more Jews in Brooklyn, NY than in Europe. The rabbis in the US opposed the creation of the nation. Yes, once it was created they wanted to run the show . . . but not before.

So I suppose that small promise that the Lord God almighty made some 5,000 years ago doesn't mean anything.....

And that is the whole point, isn't it. The only thing that can justify the creation of the state of Israel and the manner it took possession is Divine Right. Otherwise, it was a simple matter of ethnic cleansing backed by the might and money of the U.S.

God's promise to Abraham is fulfilled in Christ. Those of faith, as it has always been, are the seed of Abraham.

After the Jewish Bolshevik takeover of Russia in 1918 and several other Jewish Communist revolts in Europe, the Jews were widely viewed throughout Europe as dangerous troublemaking revolutionaries, no one wanted them. This is why why Hitler had lots of cooperation from occupied countries in rounding them up and shipping them off.
