Prevailing Threat to Jewish Nation

Assimilation is a common issue that many minor ethnic and cultural groups face when they are conquered by or interact with dominant national or religious cultures. Quite often, it leads to complete absorption into the governing societies - complete disintegration and disappearance of the unique culture of the minor ethnic or religious population.
Since its inception the Jewish people have continuously been exposed to this kind of existential threat from many dominant kingdoms and religions.
Though the history many Jews have been abandoned the membership of the unique nation under duress or willingly, adopting the culture of the rulers - during the time of ancient Egypt, Babylonian exile, Roman Empire, Christian Crusaders and Inquisition, as well as during and after the horrors of the Holocaust. Many of our brothers and sisters yielded to the threat of extermination or have surrendered to a temptation of better and more prosperous life or the illusion of personal safety if they confirm to the anti-Semitic dominance of Christian or Muslim neighbours.
The biggest drawback of Jewish assimilation is the fact that many Jewish converts into Christianity or Islam, or the ones who lost the knowledge about their Jewish ancestry, due to the strong impulse to prove that they are good ‘Arians’, became active participants of the anti-Semitic drive that is often unleashed against Jews by dominating idiots.

Jews around the world need to realize this existential threat to all of us from the current wave of assimilation. We need to regain self-respect, pride and understanding of the uniqueness of the Jewish nation, which has survived the enduring horror of persecutions.
Despite of almost two millennia of discrimination and genocides, the Jewish people have always been the vanguard and exceptional contributors to the advancement of the host countries/kingdoms and to the progress of humanity - from spirituality to successful trade/business and financial blood-line of societies; from art to advancement of science and technology!
In order to secure the future of the Jewish nation and fulfill our destiny we’ll have to make tough but necessary decisions. Occupation of the Jewish land must end and we have to stand up to international bigotry. But to do so we need establish coherent unity of our own first!
