Series: “Bad Moon Rising”
Dr. Jeffrey Seif remembers yesterday’s Holocaust and considers anti-Semitism’s rise in modern-day Europe. Though dressed this time in Islamic garb and not in Nazi uniforms, anti-Semitism is making fresh headway in the world, its current surge fueled by the radical Islamic fringe as it turns out the lights of once-Christian Europe. Jeff speaks out against this trend with a prophetic voice and calls individuals, particularly Europeans and onlooking North Americans, to resist the encroaching darkness and walk in the light of God’s grace and love.
Episode: “Out of the Darkness”
Against the backdrop of Dachau’s front gate, emblazoned with the lie “Work Will Make You Free,” Jeff teaches about real freedom. A Holocaust survivor shares her remarkable story.

Caption transcript for Bad Moon Rising: “Out of the Darkness” (2/8)

  • 00:04 WITH DR. JEFFREY SEIF AND SANDRA LEVITT
  • 00:10 AS DARK CLOUDS OMINOUSLY LOOM OVER THE HORIZON
  • 00:14 RADICAL MUSLIMS CHARGE THE ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:18 WITH BRAZEN DISREGARD.
  • 00:21 AS THE SUN SETS OVER CHRISTIAN EUROPE
  • 00:23 SLEEPING CHRISTIANS NEED TO WAKE UP
  • 00:26 NON-CHRISTIANS NEED TO GET UP
  • 00:29 AND MODERATE MUSLIMS NEED TO RISE UP.
  • 00:42 A HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:43 JEFFREY SEIF HERE,
  • 00:45 WITH MY FRIEND SANDRA LEVITT.
  • 00:46 SHALOM WELCOME TO "BAD MOON RISING" JEFF
  • 00:49 YES IT'S AN OMINOUS TITLE FOR A SERIES. >>OOOH, IT IS
  • 00:53 I WAS DRAWN TO DEVELOP THE SERIES FOR TWO REASONS.
  • 00:56 THE FIRST BEING THAT I HAD CONCERNS ABOUT CHRISTIAN SHEEPISHNESS
  • 01:02 IN EUROPE AND ELSEWHERE AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF THIS RADICAL ISLAMIC STRAIN
  • 01:07 THAT SEEMS TO BE MAKING MORE HEADWAY IN THE CULTURE;
  • 01:10 SECONDLY I WANTED TO GO TO EUROPE TO FILM THIS SERIES IN PART
  • 01:15 BECAUSE OF JOBST BITTNER AND HIS CHURCH IN TUBINGEN, GERMANY.
  • 01:20 SANDRA I SAW PICTURES AND HEARD THE STORY.
  • 01:23 JOBST PIONEERED A CHURCH AND HE WAS GIVEN LAND AT A RAIL YARD
  • 01:28 WHERE THEY USED TO SHIP JEWS TO THE CONCENTRATION CAMPS. >>RIGHT
  • 01:32 AND WHAT HE WANTED TO DO, HE LEFT THE TRACKS THERE >>I KNOW
  • 01:35 SO EVERYONE THAT GOES INTO THE BUILDING HAS TO REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO JEWS IN GERMANY.
  • 01:40 I FIGURE I WANT TO TELL THIS GUY'S STORY. >>YEAH
  • 01:43 CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING A PARISHIONER
  • 01:45 AND WALKING ACROSS THAT RAILROAD TRACK EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU WENT INTO THE CHURCH?
  • 01:50 RIGHT >>EVERY SINGLE TIME.
  • 01:52 IT WOULD HAVE TO HAVE SOME KIND OF EFFECT ON YOU.
  • 01:55 RIGHT, NOW THEY WALK OVER THE MEMORY OF THE HOLOCAUST
  • 01:58 BUT JOBST MOBILIZED HIS CHURCH OF A FEW HUNDRED >>RIGHT...RIGHT
  • 02:01 TO WALK ALONG THE PATH OF THE HOLOCAUST.
  • 02:04 I JUST CANNOT IMAGINE WHAT THOSE PEOPLE MUST BE FEELING AS THEY'RE WALKING IN THE MARCH.
  • 02:09 I CANNOT IMAGINE.
  • 02:10 WELL IT WAS MOVING.
  • 02:11 WE STARTED OFF AT A BOARDWALK AREA WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
  • 02:14 AND WE MARCHED THIS DISTANCE.
  • 02:16 THERE WAS A TIME WHEN HITLER SENT EVERYBODY ON A DEATH MARCH.
  • 02:19 YEAH, BUT THIS IS A LIFE MARCH.
  • 02:21 YES, WELL HERE ARE PEOPLE THAT LOVE JESUS, RETRACE THE STEPS.
  • 02:24 AND FOR ME I BELIEVE JESUS IS THE HOPE OF THE WORLD,
  • 02:29 THE KING OF THE JEWS IS THE HOPE OF THE WORLD.
  • 02:32 THAT THE LORD WHEN HE IGNITES PASSIONS IN PEOPLE LIKE THESE ITS BEAUTIFUL. >>I AGREE.
  • 02:36 AND HERE'S THE START OF THE MARCH AT BISINGEN.
  • 02:41 (Jeff speaking) HERE IN BISINGEN LIES THE BEGINNING OF THE INFAMOUS DEATH MARCH IN 1945.
  • 02:47 AS THE ALLIED FORCES INVADED GERMANY HIMMLER ORDERED THE JEWS
  • 02:51 ON A 14 DAY CROSS COUNTRY TREK TO DACHAU TO BRING THE END OF THE LIFE OF MANY.
  • 02:58 IN THOSE DAYS JEWISH PRISONERS ARRIVED AT THE TRAIN DEPOT AND WERE SENT TO THE DEATH CAMP.
  • 03:04 BACK THEN, HOWEVER, THE DEATH CAMP IN BISINGEN
  • 03:06 WAS RUMORED BY SURVIVORS TO BE THE MOST VIOLENT OF ALL THE CAMPS IN EUROPE.
  • 03:12 CHRISTIAN MEN AND WOMEN WHO LOVE JESUS HAVE PREPARED FOR MONTHS
  • 03:18 TO RETRACE THE 350 KILOMETER JOURNEY AS THEY REMEMBER THE JEWS.
  • 03:26 I'M MARCHING HERE ON THIS MARCH TO ASK JESUS FOR FORGIVENESS
  • 03:30 AND I PRAY THAT THIS COVER OF SILENCE WILL BE TAKEN AWAY.
  • 03:37 (Woman speaking) GOING ON THIS MARCH IS FOR ME
  • 03:39 LIKE REALLY A STEP AGAINST THAT COVERING UP AND BEING SILENT ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED.
  • 03:46 (Man speaking) AND WE WANT TO BREAK THE SILENCE IN OUR NATION.
  • 03:51 THAT'S WHAT THIS WATCH IS ABOUT
  • 03:53 TO SAY OKAY WE STAND UP IN GERMANY.
  • 03:56 WE WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN.
  • 03:59 I KNOW IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO REMEMBER THE PEOPLE WHO DIED HERE
  • 04:02 AND TO IDENTIFY WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE HERE.
  • 04:05 (Man speaking) IN THE NAME OF YESHUA
  • 04:07 BECAUSE HIS BLOOD WAS SHED FOR ALL MAN BEGIN TO PRAY FOR ISRAEL AND STAND WITH ISRAEL.
  • 04:14 IF YOU HEAR THE NEWS, IRAN IS TALKING ABOUT AGAINST JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 04:19 AND SO FOR THIS I WANT TO FIGHT FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 04:32 (Sandra speaking) AN ELECTRIFIED BARBED WIRE FENCE
  • 04:34 A DITCH AND WALL WITH SEVEN GUARD TOWERS SURROUND THE CAMP.
  • 04:38 AND IT IS HERE AT DACHAU THAT JEFF TEACHES.
  • 04:41 "ARBEIT MACHT FREI"
  • 04:45 IN GERMAN, "WORK WILL MAKE YOU FREE."
  • 04:53 THAT SLOGAN FIRST CAME TO MY ATTENTION OVER THE GATES OF AUSCHWITZ
  • 04:57 AND HERE AT THE FRONT GATE OF DACHAU
  • 04:59 ANOTHER CONCENTRATION CAMP, ANOTHER QUITE INFAMOUS ONE;
  • 05:02 LIKEWISE, "WORK WILL MAKE YOU FREE."
  • 05:05 PEOPLE WOULD WALK THROUGH THESE GATES OR THEY'D BE DRUG THROUGH THESE GATES.
  • 05:09 OF COURSE NO ONE CAME THROUGH HERE WILLINGLY.
  • 05:11 DACHAU HOUSED POLITICAL PRISONERS.
  • 05:14 MANY, MANY TENS OF THOUSAND CAME THROUGH THESE GATES
  • 05:17 AND THE PROMISED "WORK MAKES FREE" OF COURSE WAS NEVER REALIZED.
  • 05:21 WHAT FREED PEOPLE FROM THIS CAMP WAS THE ALLIES OR DEATH, WHICHEVER CAME FIRST.
  • 05:27 BEYOND THAT SOME WERE NOT FREED FROM THE CAMPS BUT WERE MOVED FROM THEM
  • 05:32 AS THIS WAS JUST A HOLDING PLACE AND THEY WERE SENT TO ONE OF THE 1200 CAMPS ALL AROUND GERMANY.
  • 05:37 "ARBEIT MACHT FREI"
  • 05:40 "WORK WILL MAKE YOU FREE."
  • 05:43 PEOPLE THINK A LOT OF THINGS WILL MAKE THEM FREE.
  • 05:45 I BELIEVE THAT WHEN I READ THE BIBLICAL TEXT WE'RE TOLD IN HERE AT THE JOHANNINE CHAPTER,
  • 05:51 CHAPTER 8 HE SAYS THERE,
  • 05:57 IT SADDENS ME IN SO MANY WAYS THE TRUTH IS IN SUCH VERY HIGH DEMAND AND SUCH VERY SHORT SUPPLY.
  • 06:03 THE TRUTH OF DACHAU WAS HIDDEN INTERESTINGLY IN THE DAYS OF HITLER'S GERMANY.
  • 06:10 THEY HAD NEWSPAPER REPORTS THAT THIS WAS LIKE A COUNTRY CLUB.
  • 06:14 IT'S HORRIFIC IN FACT.
  • 06:15 I WAS GOING THROUGH SOME OF THE NEWSPRINT
  • 06:17 AND THEY WERE SAYING SO VERY MUCH HOW THIS PLACE WAS SO VERY GREAT.
  • 06:21 YOU'D THINK IT WAS A HOTEL, HOW THEY WERE IN ENJOYING THEMSELVES.
  • 06:25 I READ A LETTER FROM THE RED CROSS COMMENDING HIMMLER FOR THE HUMANE TREATMENT HERE.
  • 06:30 IT'S ALL MYTH, IT'S ALL NONSENSE, AND IT'S ALL NON-REALITY.
  • 06:35 AND AGAIN NON-REALITY SEEMS POSTED SO MANY WAYS AND SO MANY DAYS.
  • 06:39 HAD A CONVERSATION EARLIER TODAY ABOUT HOW EVEN IN MEDIA TODAY THERE'S SO LITTLE TRUTH IN REPORTING.
  • 06:45 AND HERE IN DACHAU THIS IS THE MOST OBVIOUS INSULT TO TRUTH THAT I KNOW OF,
  • 06:50 PEOPLE THINKING THEY WERE COMING IN TO THIS MISERY TO BE SET FREE THROUGH WORK.
  • 06:55 ABSOLUTE NONSENSE.
  • 06:57 OH, WE WOULD DO WELL TO OPEN UP THE BIBLICAL TEXT TO LEARN WHAT FREEDOM LOOKS LIKE
  • 07:00 AND I BELIEVE WE CAN FIND THAT WITH RELATIVE EASE ON OUR KNEES.
  • 07:10 BAD MOON RISING CONTINUES....

  • 08:50 IN THE 2ND WORLD WAR MILLIONS OF JEWS WERE MERCILESSLY SLAUGHTERED.
  • 08:58 LITTLE DID THEY KNOW, LITTLE DID THE WORLD KNOW THAT OUT OF THE MISERIES OF THE HOLOCAUST
  • 09:04 WOULD EMERGE THE MODERN NATION STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 09:08 ISN'T IT FASCINATING THAT WE TODAY
  • 09:11 CAN VISIT THE ANCESTRAL HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE?
  • 09:14 AND ISN'T THAT THE WAY GOD WORKS?
  • 09:17 HE BRINGS FROM SOMETHING SO HORRIBLE
  • 09:19 SOMETHING SO GLORIOUS,
  • 09:21 THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 09:22 BEAUTY OUT OF ASHES IS PREDICTED IN THE BIBLE. >>RIGHT
  • 09:26 WE HAVE A TURN AROUND GOD.
  • 09:28 OH...MARVELOUS GOD.
  • 09:30 AND PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THEIR HOMELAND,
  • 09:31 THEY REALLY NEED TO SEE ISRAEL.
  • 09:33 AND WE NEED TO SEE AS WELL
  • 09:34 THAT THERE'S A GOD WHO WATCHES OVER THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 09:38 BECAUSE WE LIVE IN WORLD TODAY
  • 09:40 WHERE INDIVIDUALS WANT TO SLAUGHTER THE JEWS
  • 09:42 MUCH AS THEY WANTED TO DO AND DID DO YESTERDAY,
  • 09:46 MAY IT NEVER BE.
  • 09:47 AND CAN YOU IMAGINE WALKING THROUGH GATES THAT SAY,
  • 09:50 "WORK MAKES YOU FREE."
  • 09:52 CAN YOU IMAGINE?
  • 09:53 WE KNOW THAT TRUTH IS REALLY WHAT MAKES US FREE.
  • 09:57 AND THERE'S A WOMAN, ROSE PRICE,
  • 09:59 A JEWISH WOMAN THAT WAS SET FREE BY THAT TRUTH WASN'T SHE?
  • 10:03 AND NOT BITTER ABOUT IT.
  • 10:04 SHE SAYS, "I SERVE THE LORD OF ISRAEL."
  • 10:07 WHICH IS WONDERFUL.
  • 10:08 OUR PRODUCER, KEN BERG, INTERVIEWED ROSE PRICE.
  • 10:11 SHE'S A WONDERFUL, DELIGHTFUL WOMAN
  • 10:14 AND JUST GREAT STORY TO TELL.
  • 10:16 PLEASE WATCH THIS.
  • 10:19 POLAND WAS A DIFFICULT COUNTRY TO LIVE IN IF YOU WERE JEWISH.
  • 10:24 BUT WE PUT UP WITH IT BECAUSE
  • 10:27 MY GRANDPARENTS AND MY PARENTS ALWAYS TAUGHT US
  • 10:32 "A JEW HAS TO SUFFER."
  • 10:35 I ATTENDED THREE SCHOOLS.
  • 10:39 IT WAS THE POLISH SCHOOL, THE HEBREW AND THE YIDDISH.
  • 10:45 AND IT WAS WONDERFUL.
  • 10:48 I COME OUT OF A FAMILY THAT GRANDMA HAD NINE CHILDREN, MY MOTHER HAD FOUR.
  • 10:54 AND THEN THE GERMANS CAME AND MY WORLD DIED COMPLETELY.
  • 11:04 AT THAT TIME I WAS 11 YEARS OLD.
  • 11:10 I ATTENDED MY SCHOOL, I HELPED HOME, AND WHEN THE GERMANS CAME IN
  • 11:19 THE FIRST THING WAS THEY THREW OUT ALL THE JEWISH CHILDREN FROM SCHOOL.
  • 11:24 WE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO GET AN EDUCATION.
  • 11:28 AND AFTER THAT WHEN WE WERE HOME AND MOM AND BUBBY (GRANDMA) TOLD US WE WERE THROWN OUT OF OUR HOME INTO THE GHETTO.
  • 11:43 AND THEN THEY CAUGHT US IN THE GHETTO AND MARCHED US TO THE AMMUNITION FACTORY.
  • 11:52 I'M 11 YEARS OLD WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT AMMUNITION?
  • 11:55 BUT THEY TOLD ME EDA, LEARN THE MACHINES OR DIE."
  • 12:01 WE WORKED FROM DARK TO DARK I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY HOURS.
  • 12:07 OUR FOOD CONSISTED OF ONE SLICE OF BREAD, A QUARTER OF AN INCH THICK
  • 12:14 AND ONE CUP OF, WELL THEY CALLED IT COFFEE, BUT IT WASN'T STARBUCKS.
  • 12:20 AND THE STARVATION WAS TREMENDOUS.
  • 12:25 I WAS IN 5, 6 CAMPS INCLUDING HERE.
  • 12:32 WE WERE SO LONG IN THE TRAIN, SO MANY DAYS, SO MANY WEEKS AND MONTHS.
  • 12:38 THERE WAS NO TOILET FACILITIES.
  • 12:42 WHERE YOU STOOD, AND YOU STOOD VERY TIGHT, THAT'S WHERE YOU STOOD.
  • 12:48 IN WHAT YOU STOOD IS WHAT YOU STOOD FROM OTHER PEOPLE AND YOU.
  • 12:52 AND NO FOOD.
  • 12:55 THE ONLY WATER...IS WE CLIMB ON EACH OTHERS SHOULDERS
  • 12:59 AND PUT OUR HANDS OUTSIDE THE WINDOW FROM THE TRAIN TO CATCH SOME SNOW.
  • 13:06 AND I ASKED THE ONE SOLDIER, "PLEASE GIVE ME A PIECE OF BREAD, I'M HUNGRY."
  • 13:17 AND HE THOUGHT THAT WAS SO HILARIOUS.
  • 13:23 NO FEELING, THE PEOPLE NEVER HAD ANY FEELINGS.
  • 13:28 THEY DIDN'T SEE US AS HUMAN BEINGS, WE WERE PARASITES.
  • 13:34 WE WERE LINED UP AND MARCHED TO DACHAU
  • 13:39 AND I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT TOOK.
  • 13:42 WE WERE DRUDGING IN THE SNOW, THAT'S WHAT I REMEMBER;
  • 13:46 SO MUCH SNOW, SO COLD.
  • 13:53 WHEN WE GOT TO DACHAU THERE WAS NO FOOD, THERE WAS DIRT.
  • 13:59 YOU GRABBED A CORNER OF THE FLOOR SO NOBODY WILL FIND YOU OR SHOOT OR STRANGLE YOU.
  • 14:08 YOU HAD TO FIGHT THE RATS, YOU HAD TO FIGHT THE BUGS,
  • 14:13 YOU HAD SO MANY LICE ON YOU, YOU WOULD TAKE YOUR HAND DOWN YOUR BODY AND JUST CLEAN THEM OFF AND THROW IT.
  • 14:20 YOU COULDN'T EVEN PUT THEM IN THE FIRE BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T TOO CLOSE.
  • 14:28 THE DIRT, IT WAS TREMENDOUS.
  • 14:32 WE WERE NOT HUMANS.
  • 14:35 THERE WERE BODIES, MILE HIGH BODIES.
  • 14:40 SOME WERE STILL CRYING, SOME WERE STILL CRYING OUT, "I'M STILL ALIVE, DON'T BURY ME!"
  • 14:49 THERE WAS NO BURYING, THERE WAS NOTHING;
  • 14:53 THEY DIDN'T EVEN USE THE GUNS BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH AMMUNITION FOR US.
  • 15:00 AND THAT WAS THE LIFE
  • 15:07 CAUSE SHORTLY AFTER DACHAU WE WENT TO BURGAU,
  • 15:11 ANOTHER CONCENTRATION OUTLET OR SATELLITE
  • 15:15 AND FROM BURGAU WE WENT BACK ON THE TRAIN
  • 15:19 AND THEN THE SOLDIERS SAID THAT, "THIS TIME WE TAKE YOU TO THE WATERS TO DROWN YOU"
  • 15:26 "BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH AMMUNITION AND WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH GAS TO GAS YOU."
  • 15:32 AND SOMEBODY FROM THE MEN, THE PRISONERS,
  • 15:37 BECAUSE SOME OF THEM WE LEFT HERE, SOME OF THEM WERE STILL ON THE TRAIN,
  • 15:43 OPENED THE DOOR TO THE CATTLE CAR AND WE JUMPED OUT
  • 15:51 AND I GRABBED MY SISTERS AND I SAID, "I MADE ENOUGH BULLETS, LET THEM USE IT NOW."
  • 15:59 AND I SAID, "SARAH, COME ON, WE'RE JUMPING!"
  • 16:04 "TO DEATH OR TO LIFE WE'RE GONNA BE TOGETHER!"
  • 16:08 AND A FEW NIGHTS LATER THE AMERICANS CAME
  • 16:13 AND THAT'S HOW I WAS LIBERATED
  • 16:17 BY GENERAL EISENHOWER AND GENERAL CLARK AND THE AMERICAN SOLDIERS."
  • 16:30 AND I GOT OUT OF THIS HELL.
  • 16:36 AND NOW I'M SERVING THE GOD OF ISRAEL.
  • 16:40 WITHOUT HIM I COULDN'T DO IT.
  • 16:44 I COULD NEVER BE HERE.
  • 16:48 SO FAR HE MADE ME GO BACK TO ALL 6 CAMPS.
  • 16:55 WHEN I WALK INTO DACHAU, THAT'S MY 6TH CAMP
  • 17:00 AND I'VE BEEN TO ALL OF THEM.
  • 17:03 HE TAKES ME ONE BY ONE, BY ONE.
  • 17:09 THAT'S THE LORD.
  • 17:22 THEY DUG IT OUT BY HAND.
  • 17:25 BEHIND ME ARE SHALE DEPOSITS.
  • 17:27 YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO NOTICE BUT HERE I HAVE SOME IN MY HAND.
  • 17:31 THEY SAY THAT YOU CAN SQUEEZE THIS AND YOU GET A TAR PRODUCT OUT OF IT
  • 17:36 WHICH CAN BE FURTHER DISTILLED TO GET BUT A SMALL DROP OF OIL.
  • 17:41 WELL AT FACE VALUE IT'S A BRIGHT IDEA, MAKE OIL COME OUT OF THE ROCK,
  • 17:46 BUT WHO'S GONNA DO ALL THIS WORK?
  • 17:48 WELL THE NAZI'S HAD AN ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION, "HOW ABOUT THE JEWS?"
  • 17:50 AND SO IN MASS JEWS WERE ROUNDED UP INTO THIS HORRIBLE SLAVE LABOR CAMP.
  • 17:56 LITTLE CAN BE SEEN RIGHT NOW.
  • 17:58 BEHIND ME IS SOME SHALE AND BENEATH ME IS WHAT'S LEFT OF PART OF THE INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
  • 18:03 WHERE THE GERMANS HAD MANUFACTURED THIS ENORMOUS FACILITY.
  • 18:09 ACTUALLY, IT'S DISCERNIBLE ALL AROUND THE ACREAGE HERE.
  • 18:12 AND YOU CAN BARELY SEE IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 18:13 INDIVIDUALS SEE WHAT LOOK LIKE BUNKERS PROTRUDING OUT OF THE EARTH,
  • 18:17 SOME CONCRETE, SOME VESTIGE LEFT OVER FROM A FORMER SEASON.
  • 18:21 IT WAS A HORRIBLE SEASON BUT RIGHT NOW IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND FORESTED.
  • 18:25 ACTUALLY, AFTER THE WAR THE AREA WAS DELIBERATELY RE-FORESTED.
  • 18:31 THIS WAS ALL STRIPPED BARE.
  • 18:32 IT WAS MINED, IT WAS NOTHING TO LOOK AT BUT NOW IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 18:36 YOU CAN HEAR THE BIRDS CHIRPING IN THE TREES BEHIND ME
  • 18:39 AND ALL OF THIS BEAUTIFUL FORESTATION OBSCURES THE FACT THAT THIS WAS A KILLING FIELD.
  • 18:43 WELL, ACTUALLY CALL IT A KILLING FIELD CAN BE A BIT TOO NICE.
  • 18:47 DEATH WOULD HAVE BEEN KINDER.
  • 18:49 DEATH CAN BE OVER AND DONE WITH QUICKLY
  • 18:51 BUT HERE PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES JUST IN SMALL INCREMENTS
  • 18:57 AND MISERABLE WAS THE WAY THEY DIED.
  • 19:00 HERE AT THIS PLACE WHEN WE CONSIDER SLAVE LABOR I'M REMINDED OF THE FACT
  • 19:05 THAT TODAY THERE ARE STILL PHILOSOPHICAL SYSTEMS THAT REDUCE PEOPLE TO SERVITUDE.
  • 19:10 I'M NOT GOING OUT OF MY WAY TO TRY TO BE OFFENSIVE
  • 19:13 BUT IT IS PART OF ISLAMIC DOCTRINE
  • 19:15 THAT THOSE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE OF ALLAH ARE PART OF THE HOUSE OF WAR.
  • 19:20 AND FOR THESE INDIVIDUALS PREDESTINED IS JIHAD
  • 19:24 THE RESULT OF WHICH SOME UNDER THE HEAT OF PERSECUTION WILL BE CONVERTED.
  • 19:28 THOSE THAT DON'T WILL HAVE A STATUS CALLED DIMITUDE.
  • 19:31 WHEREIN THEY'RE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS IN AN EXPANDING ISLAMIC EMPIRE.
  • 19:35 AND AS SECOND CLASS CITIZENS THEY ARE ALLOWED TO BE USED AS SLAVES.
  • 19:40 AND THERE'S A HORRIBLE HISTORY, BY THE WAY,
  • 19:42 OF ENSLAVING PEOPLES AS THE MOVEMENT GREW AND EXPANDED.
  • 19:46 I SAID THAT TO SAY THIS, THAT WE LIVE IN A WORLD TODAY
  • 19:49 WHERE THE ATROCITIES OF A NAZI PHILOSOPHY BELONG AS A FOOTNOTE IN YESTERDAY'S HISTORY
  • 19:55 BUT WE LIVE IN A TIME TODAY WHEN THE ENGINES OF SERVITUDE,
  • 20:00 OF REDUCING PEOPLE TO A SUBHUMAN STATUS AS SLAVE TO DO MENIAL WORK
  • 20:06 IN THE INTEREST OF SERVING THE INTERESTS OF THEIR MONARCH,
  • 20:09 THAT DOES EXIST TODAY.
  • 20:11 AND JEWS TODAY AS YESTERDAY AREFEELING THE WEIGHT OF ALL OF THAT.
  • 20:15 AGAIN, IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE IN THE FOREST BUT THIS IS TODAY.
  • 20:19 YESTERDAY WAS NOT SO BEAUTIFUL.
  • 20:21 LET'S DO REMEMBER PLEASE TO NOT FORGET THE SINS OF THE PAST
  • 20:27 LEST THEY BE REPEATED DUE TO OUR IGNORANCE.
  • 20:30 THE LORD LOVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 20:32 IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT WHAT THE LORD LOVES THE DEVIL HATES.
  • 20:35 LET'S PROVIDE A BULWARK AGAINST THAT HATRED AND STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD,
  • 20:39 FOR HIS LOVE OF PEOPLE IN GENERAL, FOR HIS LOVE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 20:42 AND LET'S NEVER AGAIN LET PEOPLE BE REDUCED TO SUCH SLAVERY AND MISERY AS HAPPENED HERE IN THIS PLACE SOME YEARS AGO.
  • 20:56 (Man speaking with music) LIKE LAMBS LED TO A SLAUGHTER
  • 21:04 SHADOWS OF DEATH WE FACED ALONE
  • 21:13 WHERE WAS OUR GOD?
  • 21:19 WHEN WE WERE DYING
  • 21:24 THE AWFUL SILENCE
  • 21:28 FROM HIS HEAVENLY THRONE.
  • 21:34 (man singing) ♪WE WEAR THE SCARS OF BEING YOUR CHOSEN.♪
  • 21:46 ♪WE BEAR THE SHAME ON DAVID'S STAR♪
  • 21:57 ♪WE HIDE YOUR PEOPLE, BATTERED, BROKEN,♪
  • 22:08 ♪HATRED, MURDER THERE WE ARE♪
  • 22:25 (Man speaking) INNOCENCE LOST
  • 22:28 OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS
  • 22:33 DOWN IN THE VALLEY LIE VICTIMS UNKNOWN
  • 22:43 WHY THEN O GOD AS WE WERE CRYING
  • 22:52 DID YOU NOT HEAR US AS WE DIED ALONE?
  • 23:07 ALONE
  • 23:14 SOMETIMES IT AMAZES ME WHAT HUMANS ARE CAPABLE OF DOING.
  • 23:19 THE CRUELTY THAT WHEN POSED UPON JEWS AND OTHERS IN WWII
  • 23:23 IS STRIKING, THE MISERY, THE INHUMAN TREATMENT.
  • 23:27 AND NOT ONLY IS A STUDY OF THE PAST IN WWII TROUBLING,
  • 23:31 WHEN I LOOK TODAY AT ISLAMIC ENCROACHMENT IN EUROPE
  • 23:35 AND WHEN I SURVEY ISLAMIC LITERATURE I'M TROUBLED AS WELL
  • 23:38 BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK AT THE RELIGIOUS LITERATURE
  • 23:42 AND THE HISTORY OF THAT PARTICULAR RELIGIOUS PERSUASION
  • 23:45 I DISCOVER THAT AS ISLAM ADVANCED AS A CONQUERED PEOPLES BY THE SWORD,
  • 23:51 WOMEN WERE TAKEN AND SOLD INTO SLAVERY,
  • 23:55 LITTLE BOYS WERE TAKEN AND MADE EUNUCHS AND SOLD INTO SLAVERY,
  • 23:59 GIRLS WERE MADE PROSTITUTES,
  • 24:01 THEY HAD NO PROBLEM GOING INTO HOMES AND TAKING BOYS
  • 24:05 AND CONSCRIPTING THEM INTO ISLAMIC ARMIES.
  • 24:08 NEVER MIND STEALING CHILDREN FROM THE ARMS OF THEIR PARENTS AND RAISING THEM AS MUSLIMS.
  • 24:13 TO ME I SEE A RELIGIOUS SYSTEM THAT DEHUMANIZES HUMANS.
  • 24:17 FOR INSTANCE, IN ISLAMIC LITERATURE
  • 24:20 JEWS AND CHRISTIANS ARE REFERRED TO AS APES AND PIGS.
  • 24:24 FOR ME I'M CONCERNED WHEN I LOOK AT WWII I'M TROUBLED,
  • 24:28 BUT WHEN I CONSIDER ISLAMIC ADVANCEMENT AND AMBITION TODAY
  • 24:32 SANDRA I'M TROUBLED AS WELL.
  • 24:33 AND WE SHOULD BE JEFF.
  • 24:34 IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE JEWS
  • 24:37 IT'S ABOUT EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE WORLD.
  • 24:39 ISLAM WANTS TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD.
  • 24:41 THAT IS THEIR DOCTRINE.
  • 24:42 THAT IS WHAT THEY PREACH.
  • 24:44 THAT IS WHAT THEY'VE DONE.
  • 24:45 TWENTY-TWO COUNTRIES THEY'VE TAKEN WITH THE SWORD.
  • 24:47 RIGHT AND WHEN ONE LOOKS AT THE HISTORY
  • 24:50 OF WHAT BECOMES OF NON-MUSLIMS
  • 24:53 WHEN THEY'RE ABSORBED INTO A MUSLIM WORLD
  • 24:55 IT'S NOT A HAPPY PICTURE AT ALL. >>AND ITS NOT
  • 24:57 BUT I THINK THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE HOLOCAUST SUCH A REMINDER.
  • 25:01 THIS CAN HAPPEN TO US ALSO.
