Avi Lipkin, alias Victor Mordecai, has spoken to many churches, synagogues and civic groups (including radio and TV appearances). He is the author of several books including, “Islamic Rivalry” and “Is Fanatic Islam a Global Threat?” He offers compelling proof the fanaticism of Islam is the No. 1 threat to world peace today.

In 1964, as a 15-year-old Jewish American living in New York, I had the honor of receiving two personal letters from Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. His handwritten notes were in response to two letters I wrote him in Hebrew to inquire about his controversial statement that all Jews must move to Israel and there was no future for the Jewish Diaspora.

After 50 years, my sister found these letters in my father’s house, letters which I thought had been lost. Because of these two letters the seed was planted in my heart and soul to leave America, leave my parents and family and make Aliyah to Israel, which I did at age 19 in 1968.

In his first letter, Ben-Gurion explained:

It is possible for a Jew who lives abroad to be an honest, decent and scholarly person just as it is possible a Jew who lives in Israel can be a bad, unrighteous and ignorant person. However, if a Jew really wants to be a complete Jew, it is only possible in the Land of Israel… A Jew who wants to be Jewish in everything must come here.

In his second letter, the late prime minister told me:

I’m neither a prophet nor a fortuneteller, but I fear Jews in the Diaspora will assimilate as time goes by if they don’t have relatives in Israel. I fear Israel will cease to exist if the number of Jews does not double or triple.

The letters speak for themselves. The American Jewish population numbered about 6 million at the end of World War II. Today in 2015, the Jewish population in the U.S. is between 5.5 and 6 million despite the mass immigration of Jews from the former Soviet Union, Israel, Argentina and Brazil, among others.

Between this immigration and natural reproduction, the Jewish population of America today should have been about 15 million, but instead is stagnant or shrinking. How do we explain this?

The Jewish People in the Diaspora have experienced, I believe, two Holocausts: the first by Nazi Germany and the Second Holocaust of assimilation. Intermarriage rates are between 70 and 80 percent in many parts of the U.S. In addition, career-oriented Jews do not have many children. This leads to the dissipation of the minority amongst the majority.

My parents were heartbroken when I “abandoned” them to be a Zionist and move to Israel. I did it to ensure I would one day marry a Jewish woman who would bare me Jewish children. But most Diaspora Jews are very comfortable staying put in America, Britain, Australia and elsewhere. The result is the gradual disappearance of the Jews in the Diaspora.

However, with increasing Islamic emigration from the Middle East to North America and Europe, and their penchant to “kill the Jews on Saturday and the Christians on Sunday.” I believe the Diaspora Jews may not feel so comfortable anymore and an increasing number will make Aliyah to Israel. The deadly terrorist attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris in January 2015 is a case in point.

Ben-Gurion said in his second letter to me Israel could not survive unless it doubled and tripled its population. He was a prophet. In 1964, Israel’s population stood at 3 million Jews; today it is 6.3 million and counting.

Soon we may see mass Jewish immigration to Israel. Islamic terrorism could be the giant spatula of God to scrape up the Jews and bring them home to Zion.
