“Shiloh is a modern-day iteration of the ancient biblical city of the same name, the center of Israelite religious and political life for about three hundred years before Jerusalem took that honor. Having a modern-day Jewish community there is a renewal and revitalization of one of the ancient roots of Western civilization.

Of course, many contemporary Western people no longer have the faintest idea or give a hoot what Shiloh was.”

In the Biblical Heartland of Israel, Shiloh holds special prominence. It is here that the Tabernacle stood for 369 years while the young nation of Israel settled into her Promised Land under the leadership of the judges through to the days of Samuel the Prophet. Shiloh is the place where the Children of Israel would travel three times a year to celebrate the festivals of HaShem. This special city was the judicial heart of Israel early on as this is where Joshua cast lots for the portions of land for each tribe and where Israel’s High Priest lived – it was the first capital city of Israel.

Today’s Shiloh community, called Gush Shiloh, consists of 12 independent yet interconnected communities with a combined population of about 6,000 people. In the Shiloh bloc, residents work in a variety of industries: education, computers and technology, agriculture, and much more. Many residents work locally and others commute to work in Jerusalem and elsewhere. Local visitor’s attractions include: Ancient Shiloh tourist sites, Achiya Olive Oil Factory, Shiloh Winery, Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund programs. This is a thriving modern community nestled in the Biblical heartland of Israel.

Islamics are a growing problem in Western Europe, yet they still continue to criticize Israel. But in the end, Islam is it’s own down fall. All throughout history, nations, empires and peoples that have tried to conquer and rule the world have all dissapeared, never to be heard of again.
Islam is the most vicious, bloody, barbaric, and hate filled religion the would has ever known. It too will dissapear, but after the cost of many lives and all because of one dirty, filthy, ignorant, stupid, child molesting, rapest muderer.
