Are Jews the Bane of the World’s Future?

I received a comment from a Christian that was upset with me that I believe the Land of Israel is for the Jews because God gave it to the Jews by Promise. The comment was from a post entitled “YOU KNOW the USA and EU Work AGAINST Israel, Right? (Cross posted at SlantRight 2.0) In essence the commenter seems to believe that when Paul calls Christians Spiritual Israel then the Promise to the Jews was replaced by Christians; ergo Christians replace Jews as the Chosen People.

 

In case I have read it wrong here is the comment:

 

After seeing one post awhile back i followed you, thinking i’d see some more reasoned thinking… Now I’ve UN-followed — because it’s a waste to hear the typical yammering by another neo-Conned religious dude who doesn’t get Romans 9 — where Paul clearly spells it out for us– who is an Israelite? Or you can read in Revelation 2 again about the false Jews. (Pray and meditate as your read, and look at the actions –unprovoked war against the US in 1967 — destroying the USS LIberty (ever studied that?)

 

Why do you think we were warned TWICE, in critical places of the Scriptures?

 

From the Rothschilds to British Zionists to the current Yahoo in charge, the Beast of Daniel 9 has effective control of your beloved brutal state… — SO Who really runs the machinery of gov’t there? Are they using our military brothers as stooges while the powers in media and even the 501 c 3 churches have fallen into the trap?

 

What good can Jesus do with a Neo-Conned church? (Bold Emphasis Mine)

 

The only reference to Jews in Revelations is a weak assertion that the Christians have replaced the Jews. For one thing Chapter 2 of Revelation is about Christian Churches that have strayed away from the principles that make a strong Church thus endangering their position in Christ. Revelation 2: 8-11

 

The Persecuted Church

 

8 “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write,

 

‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: 9 “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

 

11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”’ (Bold Emphasis Mine NKJV)

 

The “Jews” the Apostle John is writing about by prophetic revelation are Christians that believe the Law must be abided by Christians with the emphasis of circumcision and ritual rites. The Apostle Paul did not have a problem with Jews that believe the Salvation work of Jesus Christ but he did have a problem with Jewish Christians forcing Gentile Christians to directly follow the Law. The Law culminates in Christ hence Faith trumps works of the Law to remain in Right Standing with God in Christ. (See Matt. 5: 17-20 and Romans 10: 3-13)

 

So when the commenter associates the term “Synagogue of Satan” with all Jews as a condemned people in the sight of God he/she is greatly mistaken.

 

For greater clarity on Jews as still the Chosen People or the people of the Promise through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob read what Paul says that the Promise to the Jews is by no means annulled:

 

Present Condition of Israel

 

30 What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; 31 but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness.[a] 32 Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law.[b] For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. 33 As it is written:

 

“Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense,
And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
[c] (Romans 9: 30-33 NKJV)

 

Israel Needs the Gospel

 

10 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel[a] is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

 

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?”[a]

 

19 But I say, did Israel not know? First Moses says:

 

“I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation,
I will move you to anger by a foolish nation.”
[a]

 

20 But Isaiah is very bold and says:

 

“I was found by those who did not seek Me;
I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”
[b]

 

21 But to Israel he says:

 

“All day long I have stretched out My hands
To a disobedient and contrary people.”
[c]

 

Israel’s Rejection Not Total

 

11 1 I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying, 3 “Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”?[a] 4 But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”[b] 5 Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace.[c] But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.

 

Israel’s Rejection Not Final

 

11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. 12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!

 

13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

 

16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

 

19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness,[a] if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

 

25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved,[b] as it is written:

“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;

27 For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”
[c] (Romans 11: 1-6, 11-27 NKJV)

 

This is some clarity that the Promised Land is still the land of the Jews which is the Land of Israel – Eretz Israel.

 

Now let’s examine a few assertions by the commenter that has little to do with the Promise to the Jews and more to do with a bias against Israel which I perceive may even smack a bit of Antisemitism.

 

The 1967 War in which Jordan, Syria and Egypt AGAIN prepared to invade Israel with the intention to destroy, because of its Jewish nature the commenter insinuates an Israel attack on the USS Liberty was an overt act of war against the United States. The reality is AGAIN Israel was involved in a war of its survival and after Israel perceived an attack from the sea hit some IDF forces Israel retaliated based on the perception. Here is a good summary:

 

The Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was a grievous error, largely attributable to the fact that it occurred in the midst of the confusion of a full-scale war in 1967. Ten official United States investigations and three official Israeli inquiries have all conclusively established the attack was a tragic mistake.

 

On June 8, 1967, the fourth day of the Six-Day War, the Israeli high command received reports that Israeli troops in El Arish were being fired upon from the sea, presumably by an Egyptian vessel, as they had a day before. The United States had announced that it had no naval forces within hundreds of miles of the battle front on the floor of the United Nations a few days earlier; however, the USS Liberty, an American intelligence ship under the dual control of the Defense Intelligence Agency/Central Intelligence Agency and the Sixth Fleet, was assigned to monitor the fighting. As a result of a series of United States communication failures, whereby messages directing the ship not to approach within 100 miles were not received by the Liberty, the ship sailed to within 14 miles off the Sinai coast. The Israelis mistakenly thought this was the ship shelling its soldiers and war planes and torpedo boats attacked, killing 34 members of the Liberty ‘screw and wounding 171. Ships from the Sixth Fleet were directed to launch four attack aircraft with fighter cover to defend the Liberty, but the planes were recalled after a message was received at the White House that the Israelis had admitted they had attacked the ship.

 

Numerous mistakes were made by both the United States and Israel. For example, the Liberty was first reported — incorrectly, as it turned out — to be cruising at 30 knots (it was later recalculated to be 28 knots). Under Israeli (and U.S.) naval doctrine at the time, a ship proceeding at that speed was presumed to be a warship. The sea was calm and the U.S. Navy Court of Inquiry found that the Liberty’s flag was very likely drooped and not discernible; moreover, members of the crew, including the Captain, Commander William McGonagle, testified that the flag was knocked down after the first or second assault.

 

According to Israeli Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin’s memoirs, there were standing orders to attack any unidentified vessel near the shore.1The day fighting began, Israel had asked that American ships be removed from its coast or that it be notified of the precise location of U.S. vessels.2 The Sixth Fleet was moved because President Johnson feared being drawn into a confrontation with the Soviet Union. He also ordered that no aircraft be sent near Sinai.

 

A CIA report on the incident issued June 13, 1967, also found that an overzealous pilot could mistake the Liberty for an Egyptian ship, the El Quseir. After the air raid, Israeli torpedo boats identified the Liberty as an Egyptian naval vessel. When the Liberty began shooting at the Israelis, they responded with the torpedo attack, which killed 28 of the sailors. In 1981, the National Security Agency noted that accounts by members of the Liberty crew and others did not have access to the relevant signal intelligence reports or the confidential explanation provided by Israel to the United States, which were used in the CIA investigation. The NSA concluded: “While these [signal intelligence of Israeli communications] reports revealed some confusion on the part of the pilots concerning the nationality of the ship, they tended to rule out any thesis that the Israeli Navy and Air Force deliberately attacked a ship they knew to be American.”2a

 

The Joint Chiefs of Staff investigated the communications failure and noted that the Chief of Naval Operations expressed concern about the prudence of sending the Liberty so close to the area of hostilities and four messages were subsequently sent instructing the ship to move farther away from the area of hostilities. The JCS report said the messages were never received because of “a combination of (1) human error, (2) high volume of communications traffic, and (3) lack of appreciation of sense of urgency regarding the movement of the Liberty.” The report also included a copy of a flash cable sent immediately after the attack, which reported that Israel had “erroneously” attacked the Liberty, that IDF helicopters were in rescue operations, and that Israel had sent “abject apologies” and requested information on any other U.S. ships near the war zone.

 

Initially, the Israelis were terrified that they had attacked a Soviet ship and might have provoked the Soviets to join the fighting.3 Once the Israelis were sure what had happened, they reported the incident to the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and offered to provide a helicopter for the Americans to fly out to the ship and any help they required to evacuate the injured and salvage the ship. The offer was accepted and a U.S. naval attaché was flown to the Liberty.

 

The Israelis were “obviously shocked” by the error they made in attacking the ship, according to the U.S. Ambassador in Tel Aviv. In fact, according to a secret report on the 1967 war, the immediate concern was that the Arabs might see the proximity of the Liberty to the conflict as evidence of U.S.-Israel collusion.3a A second secret report concluded, “While the attack showed a degree of impetuosity and recklessness, it was also clear that the presence of a U.S. naval vessel, unannounced, that close to belligerent shores at a time when we had made much of the fact that no U.S. military forces were moving near the area of hostilities was inviting disaster.”3b

Sorry commenter there was no intention of pre-1967 borders Israel taking on invading Arab armies and the super power the United States. That’s not smart thinking.

 

In Conspiracy Theory when it involves Jews, the international aspect of the Rothschild family has always figured large in the accusation of Jewish World Domination. Here is an example:

 

SECRECY IS THE HALLMARK of the Jewish Rothschild Dynasty. But I, Brother Nathanael Kapner, a former Jew, am intent on bursting the “Rothschild-bubble.” I am doing this because I perceive that the Rothschilds, (they are Jews), are the leaders, (they are secretive), in destroying Christian civilization throughout the world. (How The Rothschild Dynasty Operates; By Nathanael Kapner; Real Jew News; 4/29/08)

 

If the Rothschilds are involved in a NWO conspiracy I doubt that the little sliver of land known as Israel is a cog in that agenda. Here is some info that is probably closer to the truth about the Rothschild family in monolithic terms:

 

 

There is no longer any such thing as a monolithic House of Rothschild with connections to any significant number of all the scores of today’s independent Rothschild business ventures. The closest thing is Rothschilds Continuation Holdings AG, a Swiss company that manages interests in many Rothschild-founded institutions. There are no longer any Rothschild family members on its board (the last having retired in 2011), though about eight Rothschilds are believed to own stakes in it (like many holding companies, it’s privately held, so its records are not public). Its other owners include Rabobank and Hong Kong based Jardine Matheson Holdings. The Rothschild funds it manages now focus on mergers and acquisitions. Make no mistake, it’s a large and successful company; but with billions in assets, it’s a relatively small fish in the sea of world financial institutions with trillions in assets, including Deutsche Bank, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, HSBC Holdings, BNP Paribas, Japan Post Bank, Crédit Agricole Group, Barclays PLC, Industrial & Commercial Bank of China, Royal Bank of Scotland Group, JP Morgan Chase & Co., and many others. Anyone trying to point the finger at the scattered Rothschilds as “controlling” world banks has an awfully tall order. That little factoid is about 100 years out of date.

 

By my analysis, the Rothschilds are best thought of not as an evil shadow conspiracy, but as a great success story of rags to riches, Jewish slum to financing the defeat of Napoleon. The price of gold is fixed twice a day by five members of the London Bullion Association: Barclays Capital, Deutsche Bank, Scotiabank, HSBC, and Societe Generale, and they conduct their twice-daily meeting over the telephone. Today this is mere financial necessity, but until 2004, it was also a century-old tradition as great as the ringing of the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. The five distinguished representatives included a Rothschild, and they met in person in a paneled room at the London office of N M Rothschild & Sons. That ritual is now a thing of the past, as is the power of the world’s greatest financial dynasty. (These are the last two paragraphs of “The Rothschild Conspiracy”; By Brian Dunning; Skeptoid; 5/22/12)

 

Scroll back up toward the top to read the commenter’s accusation of British Zionism and compare to these far out Anti-Semitic words:

 

The Davidic monarchy of Britain, and the rulers of all her allied/related nations; including America and parts of the Commonwealth like Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and others; have purposefully hidden their people’s true Israelite identity/history from them.

http://www.jahtruth.net/heraldry.htm 

To do this successfully, they have helped to promote the idea that the synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9 / 3:9) – those who say they are Jews and are not, are the real “Israel”, in order to draw attention away from themselves. When for the most part, these so-called Jews are actually Idumeans (from Esau/Edom), Ashkenazi (Genesis 10:2, 3) & Khazars.

Why have they done this? Why don’t they tell their people the truth? Are they ashamed of belonging to the House of Israel?

 
http://jahtruth.net/britca.htm 

The answer is simple when you look at it from their perspective. And is why the Davidic British monarchy gave over control of Palestine to the counterfeit-Jews, who say they are Jews, and are not. The “Elite” have done a deal with the Devil’s synagogue, for their own convenience and Elizabeth Battenberg/Mounbatten even inter-married with them, and then had their male children circumcised by a rabbi, as only counterfeit-Jews can be, under counterfeit-Jewish Talmudism. (The Counterfeit-Jew Zionist and Judahite British Elite Conspiracy; By cybe; 100777.com; 8/15/08)

 

Yeah, that’s some nutty stuff.

 

Then the commenter mentions “the current Yahoo in charge”. I had to think about that a minute. Then I realized Marissa Mayer has a Jewish last name, so I looked up her ethno-religiosity:

 

Is Marissa Mayer Jewish?

 

Yes, the new CEO of Yahoo!, Marissa Mayer is a Jew.

Hat tip to our friend David who points out, “I find it interesting that Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and as of Monday, Yahoo!, are all run by Jews.” (Is Marissa Mayer Jewish? By Tzvee Zahavy; The Talmudic Blog; 7/16/12)

 

Jews in the 21st century are from religious to secular and even to atheistic in their belief system. I have no idea where MS Mayer stands on her heritage and this is not the place to do further research to satisfy my curiosity. Nevertheless I can see that the commenter is concerned about her Jewishness. And so we can conclude that the commenter is an Anti-Semite because of the obvious everything Jewish is evil mentality.

 

Daniel chapter 9 is about Daniel’s awareness that Jeremiah’s prophecy that 70 years of exile had elapsed which meant the time for the Jews to return home had come. In chapter 9 Daniel intercedes to God for mercy on the Jews’ past path that was so bad that God’s punishment was to exile them from the Promised Land. I am guessing the commenter presumes this is an example of God abandoning Jews because of sin. The reality is if you read the rest of Daniel 9 God Almighty gives Daniel a vision which for Christians has a double meaning. The first meaning was Jews indeed would return home and stay there until the Messiah comes. For the majority of Jews this has not happened, but for Christians that Messiah was and is Jesus Christ of the lineage of David in the flesh and the Son of God by incarnation. Again Jewish leadership became more worldly minded than spiritual minded losing their rebellion against the Romans which in turned emptied huge chunks of Jews into exile called the Diaspora. Guess what: When the Messiah returns again the Jews will know Him as Jesus the Messiah and Savior.

 

In my opinion it is a bit of an expectation that the majority of Jews in the present are wary of Jesus Christ as Messiah because of how the Christian Church forsook the love of Christ to persecute Jews as Christ-killers not realizing the Chosen People’s time of full restoration will not occur until Christ Returns. Modern Israel is the miracle that should signify to Christians the fullness of the times of the Gentiles has not happened yet but is getting closer.

 

Chuckle … The commenter quite cleverly lists Christians that agree with the Bible that the Jews are the Chosen People have been “Neo-Conned”. That is a reference to the name of the blog that the comment was actually left upon – the NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR). My favorite blog to post on is actually SlantRight 2.0; however the NCCR is my secondary blog that usually benefits from cross posting.

 

It is true, even though Neoconservatism has bad a rap with the Left and many on the Right I have an affinity for this Conservative ideology. For myself I am a fiscal Conservative with domestic issues and a supporter of a big military to keep America strong, protected and free. Most Libertarian-Conservatives and perhaps a majority of Paleoconservatives lean to going back to pre-WWII days when America purposely kept the military small under an Isolationist Foreign Policy. Isolationism was good for its day when the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans served as a buffer against militarily powerful nations.

 

Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 which signaled the end of ocean buffers as a protection for the USA. This means Isolationist policies will always be ineffective in protecting our homeland. Only a pro-active military will keep America the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

 

Another aspect of NeoConservatism was the concept of spreading American-style democracy to otherwise hostile despotic nations. The theory being a nation of laws might disagree with American National Interests but would be more interested in achieving a diplomatic solution to disagreements with a like-minded governing system.

 

I have since modified my agreement with nation-building after encountering actual hatred from Muslim citizens for delivering them from despotism. That anger is based primarily on the Islamic theopolitical dynamic that is totally the opposite of the Constitutional Freedom Americans have. Muslims have been totally brainwashed by their religion that politics and religion are equal partners in governance. Islam’s holy writings demand absolute submission to their deity Allah and absolute respect for their false prophet Mohammed in a socio-political sense as well as religiously. If the governing authorities fail to uphold this mind-set through a Muslim rule of law known as Sharia massive riots occur. There is no amount of nation-building that will change this Muslim-mindset without forcing a situation where the people are taught a system more accustomed to Liberty and Freedom.

 

In the 21st century an all-out war to conquer an evil religious ideology is Politically Incorrect. However, the all-out war concept to transform the minds of a conquered people is part and parcel of Islamic ideology from the days of conquering Mohammed through to the present time. That is the West’s current weakness.

 

Now back to the commenter. I suspect the commenter’s problem with NeoConservatism is less with its broad ideology but more with the movement’s historical figures which were often Jewish and/or Marxist in their thought process. Liberal Jews joined bewildered Marxists abandoning Communism due to the example of the abject failure Leninist-Stalinist and Maoist Communism to bring forth a civil free society. One famous Neocon brought forth this transformative thought: A Neocon is a Liberal mugged by reality (Loose memory of the original quote). I believe I have already established the commenter has a problem with Jews. You can see the antipathy and dislike then of NeoConservatism.

New Report Highlights Secretive EU Funding of Anti-Israel NGOs


EU Nazi Flag

 

Antisemitism in Europe has grown beyond chunks of individuals, hate-groups, Muslims, individual legislative Israel-haters and individual government branches that hate Israel. A new NGO report shows the government of the European Union has sent funds to NGOs that are blatantly anti-Israel and/or anti-Semitic. Check out this story from Arutz Sheva.

My Caroline Glick Introduction


Moral relativism and jihad

 

Caroline Glick

© April 16, 2013

 

Caroline Glick wrote a scathing yet appropriate exposé on the ignorance of Jewish-American organizations when it comes to Israel and Jew-hating Muslims. It is not surprising that that Left Wing self-loathing Jews moronically support anti-Israel agendas but I find it particularly loathing that Jewish organizations that are considered respectable Right leaning on issues and decidedly pro-Israel remained silent in the face of anti-Israel support given to Radical Islamic governments by the Obama Administration. Glick goes further in criticizing Orthodox Jews for supporting a musician that is virulently involved in anti-Israel Boycott Divest and Sanction (BDS) activities that support Palestinian Statehood while Synagogues that invite Counterjihad speakers like Pamela Geller cave in to American Radical Islamic organizations to cancel exposés of Muslim hatred by actually accusing Geller-like speakers of racist bigotry.

 

Defend Israel against claims of excessive force!

Israel Apartheid Week is Hate Jews and Lie about Israel Week

VIDEO: Is There Anti-Semitism on College Campuses?

 

This video was posted in February 2012 to briefly let people know that Antisemitism is alive and well on U.S. university campuses. Unfortunately I am a little late with this post which is a condemnation of a pro-Palestinian/Anti-Israel propaganda seminar accusing Israel of human rights violations and completely letting Islamic terrorists off the hook for their murder and mayhem of Jews in Israel. That propaganda seminar is called Israel Apartheid Week.

 

Below is an email from David Horowitz that tells what really happens in Israel and on American College Campuses pertaining to Jews. Tragically Jews are persecuted by Islamic terrorists in Israel with blood and mayhem and Jews and supporters of Israel are vilified by Islamic racists often connected to either Palestinian (Islamic) terrorists or from organizations affiliated with the Jew-Hating Muslim Brotherhood. This week of Antisemitic lies is allow to occur on college campuses that have bought into the propaganda disseminated by Islamic terrorist connected organizations operating with near impunity in the USA.

 

I am cross posting the Horowitz email but first You should take the time to view this video exposing the lies of Jew-Haters that are the supporters of Israel Apartheid Week:

Dear Friend,

Earlier this week, I sent you an email about the advertisement the Freedom Center will be running in campus newspapers at Colleges and Universities around the country. Today, I wanted to share with you an article, written by the Center’s Daniel Greenfield, which illustrates why getting this ad distributed as far and wide as possible is so critical.

I hope you’ll take a moment to read this article, and if you haven’t already, make a generous, tax-deductible donation to support our efforts.

Thanks,

A Double Standard on Hate

By Daniel Greenfield

Every year college campuses across the country hold a festival of hatred aimed at Jews and the Jewish State. Israeli Apartheid Week has become notorious for the targeted harassment of Jewish students, support for Hamas and even physical violence.

This year the David Horowitz Freedom Center has responded to Israeli Apartheid Week with Islamic Apartheid Week. Unlike Israeli Apartheid Week, which is based on a lie, Islamic Apartheid Week addresses the sexism, homophobia and religious bigotry threatening minorities in the Muslim world. To promote Islamic Apartheid Week, the Freedom Center attempted to place an ad in forty college papers.

The ad called “Faces of Islamic Apartheid” drew attention to the victims of Islamic sexism, homophobia and theocracy by briefly telling the stories of gay men hanged in Iran, women and girls murdered by their governments and their families for the crime of falling in love and the Christian Minister for Minorities Affairs in Pakistan’s cabinet who was murdered for trying to reform his country’s theocratic blasphemy laws.

These four women, three men and one little girl were the victims of Islamic Apartheid. Five of them have been murdered. Their memory lives on only when they are remembered. One has been on death row for six years. Telling her story may help save her life. The remaining two live under threat of death.

Instead of listening to their stories, the campus culture of political correctness drowned out their voices and apologized for even allowing their stories to be told.

Nine college papers turned the ad down, five of them in the University of California system which has been criticized for tolerating anti-Semitism. When the California State Assembly passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism on campus and warned that no public resources should be used for anti-Semitic hate, the University of California objected on free speech grounds. However free speech for Israeli Apartheid Week did not translate into free speech for Islamic Apartheid Week.

Seven college papers took the advertisement. Of those papers, Tufts University’s Tufts Daily and Austin’s Daily Texan both ran apologies from their editors for even printing the ad.

Tufts Daily editor Martha Shanahan called the decision to run the ad an “editorial oversight.” Daily Texan editor Susannah Jacob denounced the attempt to tell the stories of victimized women and children as “hateful” and “an unspoken incitement to violence.”

Martha Shanahan spent two pages apologizing for the existence of the “Islamophobic and violently offensive” advertisement, the existence of Tufts Daily, its staff and her own existence. At no point during her long series of apologies, did Martha acknowledge that her paper had run four editorials in a single week from Students for Justice in Palestine attacking Israel and promoting hatred for the Jewish State. And in an unequal response to this, it also ran a brief letter from Tufts Friends of Israel distancing itself from the ad and politely suggesting that apartheid shouldn’t be used to refer to Israel.

Anthony Monaco, the President of Tufts University, took to Twitter to denounce the advertisement for vilifying Islam, but made no such denunciation of the Tufts Daily’s op-ed, “The Case for Israeli Apartheid” which (not coincidentally) appeared on the same day as the ad. At Tufts, no one apologizes for accusing democratic Israel of apartheid. There are only apologies when theocratic Iran and Pakistan are accused of practicing Islamic Apartheid.

When anti-Israel voices are outweighed 4-to-1 and the editor apologizes for publishing another perspective that would have made it 4-to-2 then the freedom of debate at Tufts University is in a very sad state. When that same editor prints editorials describing Israel as an apartheid state, but promises to put in place an entire system of oversight to make certain that no advertisement challenging Islamic Apartheid is ever printed again, then a system of censorship has been put into place silencing the voices of victims and encouraging their persecutors.

The Daily Texan’s Susannah Jacob claimed that the crosshairs over the faces of the victims were an incitement to violence when they were actually a way of bringing urgency to the violence that had been committed against them. And making it clear that she never even saw the advertisement that she was denouncing, Susannah described the ad as depicting six women, when it included two gay men, one Christian man and one little girl.

Susannah further distorted the truth about Islamic Apartheid when she described the pervasive sexism, homophobia and theocracy that these people fell victim to as “discrete incidents of violence by Muslims” being used “to implicate all Muslims” while ignoring the fact that five of the victims in the ad had been targeted by their governments or with government backing.

Can the Daily Texan’s editor honestly claim that Iran’s persecution of women and gay men or Pakistan’s persecution of Christians are “discrete incidents of violence”, rather than state policy? Could she find a single human rights organization that would agree with such a dishonest whitewashing of the terror under which millions live?

The responses to the advertisement have established once again that some forms of apartheid are privileged on campus and that some forms of persecution cannot be talked about. Demonizing the Israeli victims of Islamic terror is within the realm of campus free speech, but speaking about the vulnerable minorities in the Muslim world is not.

If the advertisement was wrong, then there would have been no need to censor it. False claims can easily be disproven. Five minutes with Google would have told every reader and editor whether there was any truth to the Faces of Islamic Apartheid.

It is never necessary to censor lies. It is only necessary to censor truth.

That is why the majority of campus papers – ten so far, including Harvard whose editors said they would not print it under any circumstances — refused to run this paid advertisement. It is why those few who did have begun making ritual apologies while lying about its contents. It is why the attacks on the advertisement have taken refuge in vague platitudes about offensiveness, without a single attempt at a factual rebuttal. It is why every response to the advertisement has consisted of claiming that speaking about Islamic bigotry is the real bigotry.

There were eight faces and eight names in the censored advertisement that the President of Tufts, the editors of Tufts Daily, the Daily Texan and the editors of ten college papers that turned down the ad, did not want their students to see or know about because it might disturb the manufactured campus consensus that they have constructed with great effort around Israel and Islamic terrorism.

These are the names. Amina Said. Sarah Said. Afshan Azad. Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. Shahbas Bhatti. Rimsha Masih. Mahmoud Asgari. Ayaz Marhoni.

They were repressed as individuals. Now their story is being repressed on the American campus.

Subject: Expose the lies on our campuses

 

Dear Freedom Center Supporter,

 

Anti Semitism on America’s campuses—nonstop bashing of Israel and glorification of Hamas and other jihad groups, and even physical intimidation of Jewish students—is worse than ever. Administrators and faculty accepts all this as part of the university’s standard operating procedure. But the Freedom Center calls it for what it is—an intellectual reign of terror.

And we’re fighting back!

Faces-of-Islamic-Apartheid-1 

Think of what is allowed to take place these days as part of our universities’ business as usual:

 

  • “Israel Apartheid Weeks” staged every year by hate groups such as the Muslim Students Association that echo the call of Hamas for the “liberation” of Palestine “from the river to the sea,” which really means destroying the Jewish state and pushing its inhabitants into the sea;
  • “Nakkba” demonstrations that see the founding of Israel as a “crime against humanity;”
  • Calls by the growing BDS movement for Boycott or Divestment from Israel; and
  • Sanctions against Israel because it is a “fascist state” whose official policy is “apartheid.”

These unrelenting attacks against Israel and Jewish students are shameful and disgusting. Will you help the Freedom fight back today with a tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or more?

While the truth about the Middle East is systematically turned upside-down and inside-out, no one is stepping forward to defend Israel and remind her enemies that:

 

  • Israel is the only apartheid-free state in the Middle East;
  • Countries such as Lebanon and Jordan that have apartheid-style laws on their books; and
  • Islamic supremacists viciously subjugate women and persecute gays, Christians and other religious and racial minorities.

There’s only one organization willing to go onto our campuses to tell our students the truth about this brutal discrimination that occurs under Islamic Sharia Law—and that’s the Freedom Center.

This year the Freedom Center is sponsoring “Islamic Apartheid Weeks” on over 50 campuses across the country. These events will provide a truth-telling, in your face response to the Big Lies that are at the foundation of the leftist “Israel Apartheid Weeks.” They will explain and explore the many forms of Islamic apartheid—racism, ethnic cleansing, gender discrimination, political oppression and slavery—that have been part of the Middle East for over a millennium and are now spreading into Africa and other regions of the world.

One of the main components of the Freedom Center’s campaign is to insert full-page ads like this one in campus newspapers across the country. Under the headline “Faces of Islamic Apartheid,” the advertisement will features victims of Sharia law abroad and in the U.S. such as Amina and Sarah Said, murdered in Texas by their father for dating non-Muslims, and Shahbas Bhatti, the sole Christian minister in Pakistan’s cabinet who was murdered by members of the Taliban for advocating reform of Pakistan’s strict blasphemy laws.

While our college students hear the Big Lie about Israel every day, they never hear the truth about the body count, even in the U.S., that results from the teachings of radical Islam. And we need them to! So will you support our efforts with an immediate tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or more?

We are currently submitting this ad to 50 campus papers around the country to coincide with March’s “Israel Apartheid Week” events. We have already received confirmations that the ad will run in the papers at the following Colleges and Universities,

 

  • Rutgers;
  • Colorado State;
  • George Washington University;
  • University of Texas – Austin;
  • Tufts;
  • UNC – Chapel Hill; and
  • University of Pennsylvania.

We are targeting at least another 40 campuses this week. But the cost of running ads in just these newspapers is about $75,000! So please follow this link right now to make a tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to support our efforts.

These ads do what nothing else can do—highlight the true sources of “apartheid” in the Middle East put the campus Islamists attacking Israel on the defensive. The Freedom Center is on the front lines in the war on campus between the Big Lie and the truth in the Middle East. Your support is critical to making this effort a success.

Thank you for everything you do to help me and the Freedom Center.

Sincerely,

 

David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. We need your help to place this ad in campus newspapers at Colleges and Universities across the country. Will you make a tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to the Freedom Center right away? We must raise $75,000 by midnight tomorrow, so I’m counting on you. Thanks—David

The Myths


Wall of Truth banner

The haters and liars of Israel are having their annual Israel Apartheid Week. The Wall of Truth tears down ten myths negatively aimed at Israel and Jews.

 

JRH 3/11/13

****************************

The Myths

Wall of Truth

 

MYTH 1: ISRAEL OCCUPIES ARAB PALESTINE

 

This is a genocidal claim made by the Muslim Students Association and other pro-Arab groups.  It is genocidal because it obliterates the Jewish state.  If Israel is actually “Occupied Palestine” then there is no legitimate Jewish state in the middle east.

 

Since Roman times when the Philistines inhabited the region around the Jordan (hence the name “Palestine”) there has never been a political entity – neither a province nor a state – called “Palestine” and no one claimed there was until well after the United Nations created Israel in 1948.  The land on which Israel was created by the U.N. was also used by the colonial powers to create Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Jordan.  It was land that had belonged to Turkey for 400 years. The Turks are not “Palestinians” and are not even arabs.

 

There never was an Arab country called “Palestine” or inhabited by “Palestinians.”  Before the creation of the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1964, which was sixteen years after the birth of Israel, no Arab political entity was called by that name.

 

MYTH 2: ISRAEL IS AN APARTHEID STATE

 

The term Apartheid refers to the segregation of groups on the basis of ethnicity or race, and the denial of basic civil rights to the segregated group. There is no such segregation in Israel. Arabs are granted full civil rights under Israeli law, which forbids discrimination on the basis of race, creed, or sex. Arabs take part fully in Israeli society and government. Arab citizens of Israel vote in national elections, have representatives in the Israeli Parliament, sit on the Israeli courts and on the Israeli Supreme Court benches, and serve as tenured professors teaching in Israeli colleges and universities. The Arab citizens of Israel have more rights, and enjoy more freedom, education, and economic opportunity than the Arabs of any Arab state.

 

MYTH 3: THE ARABS WANT PEACE AND A STATE ON THE WEST BANK

 

The Arab nations rejected peace and a state on the West Bank first in 1948 when it was offered to them by the U.N. and then in 2000 when it was offered by Presidents Clinton and Barak. In 1949, the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which the U.N. had designated as a homeland for the Arabs, were annexed respectively by Jordan and Egypt. When the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) was formed in 1964 its covenant made no mention of liberating the West Bank or Gaza from Jordan and Egypt. The PLO leadership stated that its goal was to “push the Jews into the sea.” Today the “liberation” of Palestine “from the river to the sea” is still the goal of Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA). The war in the Middle East is about the desire of the Arab nations and Muslims to destroy Israel; it is not about the desire for a Palestinian state.

 

There are 1.4 million Arabs living in Israel with civil rights that are the envy of the Arab world. Israeli Arabs vote in Israel’s elections, have representatives in the Israeli Parliament, sit on Israeli courts and on the Israeli Supreme Court, and serve as tenured professors teaching in Israeli colleges and universities. The Arab citizens of Israel have more rights, and enjoy more freedom, education, and economic opportunity than the inhabitants of any Arab or Muslim state.

 

MYTH 4: THE HOLOCAUST IS EUROPE’S PROBLEM; PALESTINIANS HAD NO ROLE IN IT

 

The father of Palestinian nationalism, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, planned death camps for the Jews in the Middle East. Haj Amin Al-Husseini, was a devoted follower of Hitler who spent the war in Berlin, recruited an Arab legion to the Nazi cause and planned a “Final Solution” for the Jews of the Arab world. The Muslim Brotherhood, which created Hamas, the government of Gaza, translated Mein Kampf into Arabic in the 1930s and called for the destruction of the Jewish state at its birth.

 

MYTH 5: ISRAEL’S SECURITY FENCE IS AN “APARTHEID” WALL

 

This is two myths in one. The West Bank fence is a fence, not a wall. About 97% of the fence is made of chain-link material. The remaining 3% is concrete, designed to repel sniper fire in particular areas. The fence was built in 2003 in response to thousands of suicide bombings and rocket attacks on Israeli citizens by Palestinian terrorists, sponsored and armed by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. The fence was built to keep out terrorists, not Arabs.

 

In the years since the construction of the fence, terrorist attacks have declined by more than 90%. The fence is Israel’s legitimate defense against a ruthless and amoral terrorist aggressor.

 

MYTH 6: ISRAEL IS THE CAUSE OF THE REFUGEE PROBLEM

 

The Palestinians claim there are 5 million Palestinian refugees who fled Israel during the 1948 war. This is false. There were only 500,000 Arab refugees from the 1948 war – an unprovoked war that Egypt and four other Arab states had launched against the newly created state of Israel. In the aftermath of the war, 500,000 Jewish refugees were driven out of the Arab states in the Middle East. There are no Jewish refugees today, sixty years later, because Israel resettled them. Why are there still Arab refugees? The Arab regimes have been given billions of dollars by Israel and the United States to relocate their refugees. But the Arabs are still in refugee camps. While Israel resettled Jewish refugees, no Arab country would take in the “Palestinians” who were forced into camps and were kept there by the Arab regimes to stir up hatred against the Jews. The refugee “issue” has been created by the Arab regimes as a weapon in their war against the Jews. It should be resolved by resettling the inhabitants of the refugee camps in the West Bank and Gaza where almost all of them have lived all their lives.

 

MYTH 7: ISRAEL COMMITS WAR CRIMES BY KILLING CIVILIANS

 

This is the Big Lie, coming as it does from some Palestinians who have made terrorist attacks on civilians a weapon of choice, and who make martyrs and national heroes out of suicide bombers.

 

The Gaza strip was a base for 7,000 rocket attacks against schoolyards and townships in Israel before the Israelis responded in 2007. During Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza rocket sites there was one civilian death for every 30 terrorists. By contrast, a 2001 study by the International Committee of the Red Cross found that the civilian-to-military death ratio in wars fought since the middle of the 20th Century has been 10:1 – ten civilian deaths for every soldier death. In other words, the Israelis protect civilians at a rate 300 times greater than any other national army. As Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz observes, “No army in history has ever had a better ratio of combatants to civilians killed in a comparable setting.”

 

MYTH 8: JEWS HAVE LITTLE HISTORICAL CONNECTION TO ISRAEL

 

Jews have lived continuously in the land of Israel for over 3000 years; the Arabs arrived through multiple invasions, beginning in the 7th Century AD. In the year 70 AD, when the Jewish civilization was already over 1000 years old, the Romans forced most of the Jews of Judea and Samaria (now the West Bank) into exile. By the end of the 19th Century, the majority population of Jerusalem was Jewish.

 

MYTH 9: THE KORAN DESCRIBES JERUSALEM AS HOLY TO ISLAM

 

The Koran does not mention Jerusalem because Mohammed never set foot in the city. Jerusalem was conquered by Muslim armies in 636 after the death of Mohammed. Muslim jihadists claim that the Koran mentions “The Furthest Mosque” — Al-Aqsa in Arabic – and that this is a Koranic reference to Jerusalem. This is a lie. The Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem had not been built when the Koran was written, so the reference is to some other (or any other) “furthest mosque.” In contrast, Jerusalem is and has always been a holy city to Jews. The daily prayers of the Jews are focused on Jerusalem. The Hebrew Bible mentions Zion and Jerusalem a total of 809 times.

 

MYTH 10: THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON IS NOT JEWISH

 

This myth is one of many designed to steal the history of the Jews in order to justify erasing them from the Middle East. When the Palestinian Authority was established in 1994, it immediately began a campaign to delegitimize Israel by rewriting history with the intention of denying Israel’s right to exist. Among its false claims is that the remains of the Temple of Solomon – the Western Wall – are in fact the remnants of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Al-Aqsa Mosque was deliberately built on top of the Temple after the Muslim conquest to humiliate the conquered.

Should Jews leave Britain


Holocaust Imagery - Jews and Hitler sm

Not to long ago Caroline Glick and Danny Dayan were debating Daniel Levy and William Sieghart. Glick and Dayan took the pro-Israel stand and Levy and Sieghart took the pro-Palestinian statehood stand.

 

Levy became so incensed at Glick that an article by Douglas Murray said he had to be physically restrained. Apparently Levy took umbrage to Glick’s argument that a lack of solution about statehood was Palestinian rejectionism more than Israeli Settlements in Judea/Samaria (aka West Bank).

 

Glick came away from this debate writing that she sees no future for Jews in the United Kingdom. The implication being that antisemitism has become ingrained into the UK public that they would rather allow the practice of unwestern Sharia Law than remember the treatment of Jews in Europe during WWII which was the Holocaust that killed about six million Jews.

 

Below is that Murray article which I will follow with a one hour and 45 minute Youtube video of the debate.

Should Jews leave Britain?

 

By Douglas Murray

29 January 2013 15:39

The Spectator

 

Should Jews leave Britain? The question is prompted by this piece written by the Israeli journalist Caroline Glick.

 

Glick recently came to London to take part in an Intelligence Squared debate. The debate was about Israeli settlements. Glick and Danny Dayan attempted to explain to the London audience that Palestinian rejection rather than Jewish settlement in the West Bank is the primary reason there is still no solution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. The debate is now available on Youtube and there you can see the deeply rancorous tone of the discussion. At one point Lord Levy’s son, Daniel Levy, (arguing against Glick and Dayan) has to be almost physically restrained by his own co-debater (William Sieghart). Levy’s frustration appears to come from being pulled up on an allegation he casually makes against Israel for which he turns out to have absolutely no evidence.

 

But the audience go with him, and go against Glick and Dayan in the final vote by a factor of 5 to 1. As Glick notes in her bitter farewell to London, the audience was so hostile towards her argument that when she even mentioned the matter of Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini and his involvement with the Nazis during World War II she was booed down by the audience. They – having been presented to her as open-minded – turned out to be so close-minded and partial that they would not even hear a historical fact about a Palestinian figure who was an actual Nazi. Glick writes:

 

‘I was prepared to conduct a civilized debate based on facts and reasoned argumentation. I expected it to be a difficult experience. I was not expecting to be greeted by a well-dressed mob.’

 

I suppose that there will be those who think Glick’s recommendation to Jews to be over-statement:

 

‘There is no future for Jews in England.’

 

But after the events of the last week you do have to wonder.

 

After all it was a week in which David Ward, the Liberal Democrat MP for Bradford East, used the opportunity provided by Holocaust Memorial Day to punish the Jews for the Holocaust:

 

‘Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.’

 

And on the day itself the Sunday Times saw fit to publish a cartoon by the witless Gerald Scarfe showing the Prime Minister of the Jewish state building a wall consisting of bloodied and dying Palestinians.

 

Much of the comment on these latter cases has focussed on the ‘inappropriateness’ of running an anti-Semitic cartoon or making an anti-Semitic comment so close to Holocaust Memorial Day. I cannot help thinking that this is missing the point. Ward and Scarfe should be excoriated not for their sense of timing but for the fact that they are wrong. Wholly, completely and outright wrong. There is absolutely no connection between, for instance, the liquidation of hundreds of thousands of Jews in the Warsaw ghetto and the treatment of Palestinians in the West Bank. There is absolutely no connection between the situation in Gaza and the herding of six million Jews into concentration camps. The wonder then is not over Scarfe or Ward’s sense of timing, but why at any point in any year they would be so keen to spread lies and to bait Jews by comparing the actions of the Jewish state with those of a genocidal doctrine of Nazism which sought to annihilate the Jews.

 

Rupert Murdoch has apologised for the Scarfe cartoon and Ward now seems to be reluctantly towing what Liberal Democrat party line can be held. But Glick’s question returns. What sort of future is there in Britain for Jews? I would submit that there is a future. But what is becoming increasingly clear is that the price of that future is that Jews will increasingly be expected to distance themselves from Israel. There is a fair amount of evidence from the Jewish community suggesting that this process is already underway. Once it is complete then those ‘good’ anti-Israel Jews will be able to proclaim victory. But the same force that they encouraged to come for their co-religionists will then just as surely come for them. And then where will they hide?

Christians Must Honor Jews


Jew First and the Greek 2

John R. Houk

© November 27, 2012

 

Christians of history past, particularly Roman Catholics, Lutheran Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Christians (More modern Eastern Orthodox antisemitism), emerged as Jew-haters by calling the Jews Christ-killers. Were the Jews of pre-Resurrection Jesus the murderers of Jesus the Christ (the Anointed One and His Anointing). The accusation is a particularly heinous indictment since Jesus came FIRST as the Savior of the Jews and then as the Savior of the World, i.e. the Gentiles (non-Jews).

 

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”[b] (Romans 1: 16-17 NKJV)

 

Take note that Salvation is to the Jew FIRST and also the Greek (i.e. Gentiles). Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit the Apostle Paul included this in the Epistle to the Romans AFTER Jesus was nailed to the Cross, died and arose bodily from the grave.

 

Did the Jews kill their own Messiah? NO! Rather the Greek oriented Sadducees and tradition minded Pharisees in the Temple authority known as the Sanhedrin feared that Jesus’ popularity would remove their political influence bequeathed by Roman hegemony over the Jewish faithful. Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate called for Jesus’ Crucifixion only in the fear the Sanhedrin would notify Roman Caesar Tiberius that a rebellious Jew called Jesus bar Joseph was set free.

 

In my mind the responsibility for Jesus’ death on the Cross lay at the feet of the Jewish Sanhedrin and the Roman government as administered by Pontius Pilate. If Christians blame Jews as Christ-killers because of the actions of the Sanhedrin, then Christ-killer blame must be shared with the Roman government. At the time the Roman government was Italian-Romans. Do we call all Italians Christ-killers? And think of this: the Roman Catholic Church is a vestige of the Latin speaking Roman Empirical government so do we call all current Catholics Christ-killers? Or think of this: the official liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church until the 1960s was spoken in ancient Latin. Do we call all the people that speak a derivative of Romantic languages (e.g. Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese and so on) Christ-killers? I believe you get the idea.  

 

The Jews have problems with Christians, especially the proselytizing Christians even though most of those proselytizers are lovers of the Jews. The problem Jews have with Christians is their/our past Jew-hating persecution including the blood libel of Christ-killer. Yes friends I am talking of the kind of persecution that led to pogroms, genocide and/or death march expulsions.

 

Orthodox Judaism has a problem with the theology that their Messiah according to Christians is the Son of God making a human co-equal with God Almighty. Indeed, once religious Jews picked up on the preaching of Jesus that His Father is God and Jesus did co-equalize Himself with God by the Father and the Son is One. The pre-Resurrection Lord Jesus mystically walked away from many stoning opportunities from the Jewish faithful.

 

Christians must abandon the notion of Jewish Christ-killers and Jew-hatred. Christians must embrace the notion the Jews are the Chosen People with the Promise of specific Land to Abraham and the Abrahamic descendants.

 

Part of the Abrahamic Covenant is the Child of Promise. Sarah was privy to the promise of a great nation. With Abraham and Sarah being a bit aged to have children, Sarah thought she’d God a bit of help and told Abraham to make a baby with her slave Hagar. What a surprise: Abraham thought for about a half a second and said, “Okayyyy”. The progeny of that escapade with slave girl Hagar was Ishmael which everyone presumed was Abraham’s heir apparent to the Promise.

 

Sarah’s plan was not God’s plan. God promised aged Sarah a child and it happened. The Child of Promise then was Isaac and the child of the slave was Ishmael. Thus Ishmael was not the heir to the Promise but rather Isaac.

 

The Bible that both Jews and Christians call Holy shows the Promise of Abraham in having descendants as numerous as the stars and the Promise of specific geographical Land. The Jews call this portion of the Bible the Torah and the Tanakh. The Christians call the portion of the Bible with Abrahamic Covenant the Old Testament and the first five books of the OT the Pentateuch. The essence of the differences in interpretation of the Old Testament is the view to who the Messiah will be (Jews) or is (Christians). Of course the theology chasm has widened over years as the Gentiles began to dominate Christianity over the Jews. Regardless of that growing Jewish-Christian theology chasm it is incumbent upon Christians to honor in the plan of Salvation knowing that part of that plan is the Jews FIRST and then the Gentiles.

 

I found a John Piper article posted at Desiring God that highlights the reasons of why to embrace “the Jews First” and the theology that is equal between Jews and Gentiles.  I am just listing the points in the article I do encourage you to read the whole thing. The title is “To the Jew First, and Also to the Greek”.

 

First, then, how are the Jews “first”?

 

1. The Jews have a priority over Gentiles as the chosen people of God

 

2. The Jews have a priority over Gentiles as the guardians of God’s special revelation, the Old Testament Scriptures

 

3. The Jews have a priority over the Gentiles in that the Messiah himself, Jesus Christ, came first as a Jew to the Jews

 

4. The Jews have a priority over the Gentiles in that salvation is from the Jews

 

5. The Jews have a priority over the Gentiles in that Paul evangelized Jews first when he brought the gospel to a new place

 

6. The Jews have a priority over the Gentiles in final judgment and final blessing.

 

In What Ways Do the Jews Not Have Priority?

 

1. The Jews do not have priority in righteousness or merit

 

2. The Jews do not have priority in how they are saved

 

3. The Jews do not have priority in participation in God’s covenant blessings

 

This is what got me started on Christians must be supportive of Jews even if Jews mistrust Christians. A better writer than I (Danny Jeffrey) found a news article on Israel Nation News in which a moronic Catholic Cardinal calls Israel a bunch of baby-killers in the recent bout with Islamic terrorists Hamas. Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi condemns Israel yet does not mention that Hamas shot missiles into Israeli civilian centers targeting among other location schools. Cardinal Ravasi is supporting Jew-hating Muslims that deny the Divinity of Christ and has the goal of killing every Jew in Israel because Islam calls the Bible corrupt and the Promises given to Abraham that was to flow through the child of Promise – i.e. Isaac – a lie. The Quran rewrites the Old Testament and the New Testament to proclaim the Abrahamic Covenant flows from the child of the slave – Ishmael. AND that Jesus is NOT the Son of God but rather a mere man that was a great Prophet BUT second to the butchering self-proclaimed prophet Mohammed.

 

This Cardinal Ravasi is outrageous and should be removed from his high Papal position by Pope Benedict XVI.

Intro: Obama’s Dangerous Consistency


BHO Quran apology - BHO Constitution Disdain

John R. Houk

© September 22, 2012

 

Caroline Glick has some awesome insight on Obama’s Foreign Policy in relation to Egyptian animus toward the USA.

 

She begins by pointing out the Islamic hatred for American Free Speech. This Egyptian hatred of America is evidenced by Egypt placing arrest warrants against the makers of the Mohammed Movie and anyone associated with promoting the movie.

 

Just as a sidebar: Egypt asking the U.S. government to honor the arrest warrants for something that is protected by the First Amendment should give more importance to the grassroots movement of enacting American Laws for American Courts (ALAC). – End of sidebar

 

Glick points out that Egyptian Clerics – like from the Muslim Brotherhood – are calling for an end of attacks on U.S. Embassies; however call for Muslims to rise up in the USA to murder anyone connected to the Mohammed Movie.

 

Glick points out that the Obama Administration has been consistent in an appeasement foreign policy by using an apologetic strategy of courting friendship with Muslim nations and most notoriously the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt.

 

Glick rounds out her criticism of President Barack Hussein Obama by pointing out his Administration is attempting to take the voters’ eyes off the foreign policy failure by dredging memories of the Neocons of the old Bush Administration yet only and oddly falling into the myth that Neocons are Jewish. Hence, without using anti-Semitic words the Obama Administration is using antisemitism to separate Obama policies as the source of Muslim rage against Americans.

 

This is a good read!

Obama’s dangerous consistency

 

By Caroline Glick

September 21, 2012, 9:39 AM

CarolineGlick.com

 

On Tuesday, Egypt’s chief prosecutor issued arrest warrants against eight US citizens.

 

Their purported crimes relate either to their reported involvement in the production of the Internet movie critical of Islam that has received so much attention over the past 10 days, or to other alleged anti-Islamic activities.

 

One of the US citizens indicted is a woman who converted from Islam to Christianity.

 

According to the Associated Press, Egypt’s general prosecution issued a statement announcing that the eight US citizens have been indicted on charges of insulting and publicly attacking Islam, spreading false information, and harming Egyptian national unity.

 

The statement stipulated that they could face the death penalty if convicted.

 

The AP write-up of the story quoted Mamdouh Ismail, a Salafi attorney who praised the prosecution’s move. He claimed it would deter others from exercising their right to free expression in regards to Islam. As he put it, the prosecutions will “set a deterrent for them and anyone else who may fall into this.” That is, they will deter others from saying anything critical about Islam.

 

This desire to intimidate free people into silence on Islam is clearly the goal the heads of the Muslim Brotherhood seek to achieve through their protests of the anti-Islamic movie. This was the message of Muslim Brotherhood chief Yussuf Qaradawi. Three days after the anti-American assaults began on the anniversary of the September 11 jihadist attacks on America, Qaradawi gave a sermon on Qatar television, translated by MEMRI.

 

Qaradawi struck a moderate tone. He called on his followers to stop rioting against the US. Rather than attack the US, Qaradawi urged his Muslim audience to insist that the US place prohibitions on the free speech rights of American citizens by outlawing criticism of Islam – just as the Europeans have done in recent years in the face of Islamic terror and intimidation.

 

In his words, “We say to the US: You must take a strong stance and try to confront this extremism like the Europeans do. This [anti-Islamic film] is not art. It has nothing to do with freedom of speech. This is nothing but curses and insults. Does the freedom to curse and insult constitute freedom of speech?”

 

Both the actions of the Egyptian prosecution and Qaradawi’s sermon prove incontrovertibly that the two policies the US has adopted since September 11, 2001, to contend with Muslim hatred for the US have failed. The neoconservative policy of supporting the democratization of Muslim societies adopted by President Barack Obama’s predecessor George W. Bush has failed. And the appeasement policy adopted by Obama has also failed.

 

Bush’s democratization policy claimed that the reason the Muslim world had become a hotbed for anti-Americanism and terror was that the Muslim world was not governed by democratic regimes. Once the peoples of the Muslim world were allowed to be free, and to freely elect their governments, the neoconservatives proclaimed, they would abandon their hatred of America.

 

As a consequence of this belief, when the anti-regime protests against the authoritarian Mubarak regime began in January 2011, the neoconservatives were outspoken supporters of the overthrow of then-president Hosni Mubarak, despite the fact that he had been the US’s key ally in the Arab world for three decades. They supported the political process that brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power. They supported the process despite the fact that Qaradawi is the most influential cleric in Egypt. They supported it despite the fact that just days after Mubarak was ousted from power, Qaradawi arrived at Cairo’s Tahrir Square and before an audience of two million followers, he called for the invasion of Israel and the conquest of Jerusalem.

 

In the event, the Egyptian people voted for Qaradawi’s Muslim Brotherhood and for the Salafi party. The distinction between the two parties is that Qaradawi and the Muslim Brotherhood are willing to resort to both violent and nonviolent ways to dominate the world in the name of Islam. The Salafis abjure nonviolence. So while Qaradawi called for the riots to end in order to convince the Americans to criminalize criticism of Islam, his Salafi counterparts called for the murder of everyone involved in producing the anti-Islamic film.

 

For instance, Salafi cleric Ahmad Fouad Ashoush issued a fatwa on Islamic websites last weekend calling for American and European Muslims to murder those involved with the movie. His religious ruling was translated by the SITE Intelligence Group on Monday.

 

Ashoush wrote, “Those bastards who did this film are belligerent disbelievers. I issue a fatwa and call on the Muslim youth in America and Europe to do this duty, which is to kill the director, the producer and the actors and everyone who helped and promoted the film.

 

“So, hurry, hurry, O Muslim youth in America and Europe, and teach those filthy lowly ones a lesson that all the monkeys and pigs in America and Europe will understand. May Allah guide you and grant you success.”

 

These are the voices of democratic Egypt. The government, which has indicted American citizens on capital charges for exercising their most fundamental right as Americans, is a loyal representative of the sentiments of the Egyptian people who freely elected it. The Salafi preacher is a loyal representative of the segment of the Egyptian people that made the Salafi party the second largest in the Egyptian parliament. Qaradawi’s call for the abolition of freedom of speech in America – as has happened in Europe – and to ban all criticism of Islam is subscribed to by millions and millions of Muslims worldwide who consider him one of the leading Sunni clerics in the world.

 

Free elections in Egypt have empowered the Egyptian people to use the organs of governance to advance their hatred of America. Their hatred has been empowered, and legitimized, not diminished as the neoconservatives had hoped.

 

The behavior of the Egyptian government, Qaradawi and the Salafis also makes clear that Obama’s policy of appeasing the Muslim world has failed completely. Whereas Bush believed the source of Muslim hatred was their political oppression at the hands of their regimes, Obama has blamed their rage and hatred on America’s supposed misdeeds.

 

By changing the way America treats the Muslim world, Obama believes he can end their hatred of America. To this end, he has reached out to the most anti-American forces and regimes in the region and spurned pro-American regimes and political forces.

 

When Obama’s policies are recognized as driven by appeasement, the seeming inconsistency of his war against Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi on the one hand, and his passivity in the face of the anti-regime uprising in Iran in 2009 and the Syrian uprising against the Assad regime today makes sense. Gaddafi was not a threat to the US, so he was unworthy of protection. The mullahs in Iran and Assad are foes of the US. So they deserve protection. Obama has assiduously courted the Muslim Brotherhood from the outset of his presidency.

 

The official and unofficial Egyptian exploitation of the Internet film as a means to intimidate and attack the US into disavowing its core principles is proof that Obama’s theory of the source of Muslim rage is wrong. They do not hate America because of what the US government does. They hate America because of what America is. And it is because of this that since September 11, the rationale for Obama’s foreign policy has disintegrated.

 

Rather than accept this basic truth and defend the American way of life, Obama has doubled down in the only way now available to him. He, his administration, his campaign and his supporters in the media have responded to the collapse of the foundations of his foreign policy by resorting to the sort of actions they accused George W. Bush, his administration and supporters of taking. They have responded with a campaign of political oppression and nativist bigotry directed against their political opponents.

 

Late last Friday night, law enforcement officers descended on the California home of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man who made the film that the Muslims of the newly free Arab lands find so offensive. Nakoula was questioned by federal authorities and later released. His arrest was photographed. The image of a dozen officers arresting an unarmed man for making a movie was broadcast worldwide within moments.

 

Beyond persecuting an independent filmmaker, the White House requested that YouTube block access to it. YouTube – owned by Google – has so far rejected the White House’s request.

 

The Obama administration’s abetment of bigoted nativism to silence criticism of its substantively indefensible foreign policy was on prominent display last Sunday. Obama’s campaign endorsed an anti-Semitic screed published by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.

 

In her column, titled, “Neocons slither back,” Dowd wrote that Republican Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are mere puppets controlled by “neocon puppet master, Dan Senor.”

 

Neocon is a popular code for Jewish. It was so identified by Dowd’s Times’ colleague David Brooks several years ago.

 

Dowd said that “the neocons captured” Bush after the September 11 attacks and “Now, amid contagious Arab rage sparked on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, they have captured another would-be Republican president and vice president, both jejeune about the world.”

 

One telling aspect of Dowd’s assault on Senor as a neoconservative is that he and his boss in the Bush administration, Paul Bremer, were the nemeses of the neoconservatives at the Pentagon. The only thing Senor has in common with the likes of Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith is that all three men are Jews.

 

Moreover, Dowd drew a distinction between supposed “neocons” like Senor, and non-Jewish US leaders Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney who merely “abetted” the neocons.

 

So Senor doesn’t share the same ideological worldview as Feith and Wolfowitz but he’s a neocon. And Cheney and Rumsfeld do share the same worldview as Feith and Wolfowitz. And they are not neocons.

 

The Times’ public editor Andrew Rosenthal dismissed claims that Dowd’s column was anti- Semitic, arguing it couldn’t be since she never said a word about Jews.

 

The Obama campaign linked to Dowd’s column on its Twitter account with the message, “Why Romney and Ryan’s foreign policy sounds ‘ominously familiar.'” Obama’s campaign’s willingness to direct the public to anti-Semitic screeds against his political opponents is consistent with the administration’s general strategy for defending policies. That strategy involves responding to criticism not with substantive defense of his policies, but with ad hominem attacks against his critics.

 

His failed economic policies’ critics are attacked as “Wall Street fat cats.” His failed foreign policies’ critics are demonized as ominous neocon puppet masters.

 

There is a difference between appeasing parties that have been harmed by your actions and appeasing parties that wish your destruction. In the 1970s the US appeased the Philippines by transferring sovereignty over the Clark Air Force Base to the Philippine government. America was still America and the US and the Philippines became friends.

 

To appease a party that hates your way of life, you must change your way of life. The only way America can appease the Muslim world is for America to cease to be America.

Jay Carney White House Press Secretary

Now Even Obama Administration Fails Affirmation Jerusalem is Israel’s Capital

John R. Houk

© July 28, 2012

 

The White House Press Secretary Jay Carney REFUSES to answer the question: “What is the Capital of Israel?” This goes hand in hand with the BBC refusing to list Jerusalem as the Israeli Capital city. In the Olympic list of Capital cities the non-entity Palestine has its Capital city listed as East Jerusalem.

 

HELLO! There is NO East Jerusalem! After Israel lost the Old City of Jerusalem which included the ancient Jewish Quarter to Transjordan’s (Now Jordan) British led Arab Legion in 1948, Jordan then proceeded to annex the land that belonged to Israel via the original British Mandate for Palestine. This unilateral annexation included the Old City Jerusalem which was then dubbed East Jerusalem.

 

After yet another Arab invasion of Israel in 1967 and yet another Israeli victory, the land dubbed the West Bank by Jordan and East Jerusalem was reverted BACK to Israel via the same way Jordan usurped the land in 1948. If the Arab nations and Jordan in particular ever intended the land called Judea-Samaria by Israel was ever intended as a national homeland by Arab created refugees later dubbed Palestinians, THEN Jordan would have turned their conquered West Bank land into a Palestinian State.

 

Jordan DID NOT! In 1967 Israel reclaimed their land by military victory over invaders.

 

We all know the reason behind the refusal is that the Obama Administration is anti-Israel and is determined to establish a Jew-Hating Palestinian State by forcing Israel to give up land that is of Jewish Heritage INCLUDING the City of David – Jerusalem.

 

Israel is for Jews. In 1948 the American government recognized Israel as the Jewish State while at least FIVE Arab invading armies invading the sliver of land Israel controlled even though the British Mandate for Palestine was created to establish a homeland for the Jews reuniting them to the land God Almighty Promised to them from the time of Abraham. That Abrahamic Covenant was passed down through the child of Promise Isaac, then to Jacob, to Jacob’s 12 sons and actuated by Moses and Joshua.

 

As Christians we believe that Abrahamic Covenant would mean Salvation is of the Jews; thus Jesus Christ the Son of God in Divinity and the son of Mary in the flesh is from the tribe of Judah (the son of Jacob-Israel) and the lineage of King David. God promised David there would always be a descendant on the throne of Israel. Conquests and Diasporas ended the throne of David and as such religious Jews await the Messiah descendant of David to reassume the throne of David. Of course we Christians believe descendant is Jesus the Christ (the anointed Messiah) that has brought Redemption to individuals and in His Second Coming will bring Full Redemption including the nations of the Earth.

 

Jesus in His Kingdom, New Jerusalem

 

In that future time Jesus sits on the throne of David in the City of David on Mt Zion which is Jerusalem the current Capital of Israel and future Capital of the world under Divine Administration with the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb on Twelve Thrones governing the Tribes of Israel and Administrating the Nations.

 

Yes the Jews are still important to God as the Chosen People that reign with Christ. The Obama Administration is executing a grievous injustice by not recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and the spiritual center of Judaism for Jews globally.

What is wrong with this White House?
 
At the daily White House news briefing, White House Press Secretary
Jay Carney refused to name Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

This slap to Israel’s face comes after President Obama left Prime Minister Netanyahu sitting by himself in the White House, and Obama’s administration helped the Muslim Brotherhood take power in Egypt. No doubt, if he was asked, Carney would affirm that Cairo is Egypt’s capital. But not for Israel.

We at One Jerusalem need your help in spreading the facts about the current United States/Israel relationship. It more strained than ever.

About One Jerusalem

 

When reports began emanating from the negotiations at Camp David that Jerusalem was in danger of being divided, a group of Israelis and Americans decided to mobilize international grass roots support for keeping Jerusalem united under Israeli sovereignty.

One Jerusalem immediately established a website as a central address to unite people from around the world: http://www.onejerusalem.org. Within a few months, hundreds of thousands of people signed a petition in support of keeping Jerusalem as the united capital of Israel.

 

In January of 2001, One Jerusalem held its inaugural event, the largest rally in the history of Jerusalem. More than 400,000 people filled the hills around Jerusalem’s Old City for an unprecedented demonstration of support for Israel’s beleaguered capital city, just four months after the launch of a deadly Palestinian-Arab assault against the Jewish state. The world watched as the people pledged their allegiance to the preservation of Jerusalem as the eternal, unified capital of the State of Israel, forever open to all the people of the world.

Since then, One Jerusalem has READ THE REST
