Jewish Preppers?

Some people finding our website may be wondering what is a Prepper and why does it have a religious affiliation? Well the short answer is...A Prepper is the modern day survivalist. It's not (necessarily) a right-wing militiaman preparing for Armageddon in the boondocks of Montana. But better represented by a normal, educated, middle class individual perhaps living in the most urban of cities, preparing themselves physically and mentally for any upcoming disaster, natural or man-made. This could include anything from earthquakes to volcanic eruptions, social unrest to an act of terrorism. Preparations include: food supply, medical supply, weapons supply etc. and the knowledge and skills to use them. Of course, a Jewish Prepper is just a designation for a small niche of the Prepper Community that is of the Jewish Faith. We are non-profit and nonpartisan. Enjoy!

Sharia compliance and complacency

The largest development in DC in decades, on public property, will be compliant to sharia. I wonder if a kosher deli could rent there. Will passports be checked and exclude renters with Israeli visas/stamps? Does anyone care?

Via Atlas Shrugs:

Qatari Investors: Huge Downtown Development Project Must Conform to Shariah

See for the article.

One money quote: "But as it happened, their hesitancy on bank branches meshed with the policies of their financial partners, who adhere to the restrictions of Shariah, or Islamic law, including the ban on collecting interest. Restaurants will be able to serve liquor, but retailers whose primary business involves selling alcohol will not be allowed, Mr. Alsup said.

In their marketing materials, Hines and Archstone say they intend to provide “an authentic place for urban residents to socialize outside their homes.” "

I guess going out for a beer or wine with friends is no longer authentic, and picking up some wine for dinner is equally unauthentic. Will women be able to shop alone or will a husband or male family member be required as an escort? Will stores be able to sell pork? Will bookstores carry Jewish authors or books arguing against sharia or islamic barbarism?

And add this from American Thinker:

The take home quote: "So, my reflections upon having returned to New York from Dearborn after this eventful weekend: during the entire time I spent at the Arab International Festival, my overall sense was one of unease because of a palpable feeling that bad things were happening all around me. I came to the conclusion that Dearborn is a very, very bad place. It is lost. It is no longer part of America. It is a primary source of a virus that is spreading throughout this country -- of which the school situation in Farmington Hills is a perfect example." Please read the entire post.
