The Miracle of Zionism

"Israel is the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago." - Historian Barbara Tuchman

"Israel is the only nation on the face of the earth that was created by a sovereign act of God" - Pastor John Hagee

"All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?" - Author / Atheist, Mark Twain (long before the Holocaust and Israeli-Jewish statehood)

"They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a Bauble in comparison of the Jews. They have given religion to three quarters of the Globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily, than any other Nation ancient or modern." - President John Adams - His 1808 response letter criticizing the depiction of Jews by the French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire.

Jewish Converison and The Messianics

Today in America there is a tremendous pull to separate the Jewish soul from his covenant with the God of Israel through conversion. In June 1996 at the Southern Baptist Convention in New Orleans their 10th resolution on Jewish evangelism was passed. The mandate to this resolution was this: "to develop evangelistic ministries among Jews and start churches in predominantly Jewish communities." Now here is my question for Southern Baptist as well as other denominations who seeks Jewish conversion: Why are the Jews of Judaism who represent one of the tiniest religions in the world are the ones most specially targeted for conversion purposes?

The Southern Baptist is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States with approximately 16 million members. That’s more members in this single Christian denomination in the United States than the entire world-wide Jewish population! Yet, out of all the other religions of the world including Islam (the second largest and fastest growing religion of the world), and a thousand of other Christian denominations to whom the Southern Baptist oppose doctrinally (including the Catholic Church, the most numerous single religious denomination in the world), it is Judaism (one of the smallest religions of the world) that is singled out as “the prize catch” for conversion at these Southern Baptist conventions. Again, my question is, why the Jews?
Since 1867 the Southern Baptist (who originally supported black slavery) has passed ten resolutions (averaging about one every fourteen years) urging their organization leaders and members to convert the Jews. Historically, how many resolutions at these conventions do you suppose the Southern Baptist organization has passed concerning conversion of other religions such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Catholicism (the “Mother of Harlots” of Revelation 17:5 as believed by Southern Baptist)? Let me give you a hint: Its more than minus-one, but less than one! It is therefore fair to say, that the Southern Baptists seeks out the tiny member Jewish nation for conversion more than ten times the amount as other world religions or non-Southern Baptist. One more time, why the Jews? What is it about these Jews and their covenant that causes this great uncontrollable pulsating urges among the Gentile evangelicals to persistently and methodically seek out Jewish conversion?
To understand the evangelical psyche of Jewish favoritism for conversion, one has to realize that what motivates these evangelicals is theological domination rather than a genuine love for the Jewish soul. The evangelicals who target Jewish are really fighting (not even being aware of it subconsciously) for the validity of their Christianity by favoring Jewish conversion over their fellow Gentile conversion. Isn’t a soul a soul and an eternal life an eternal life regardless if that life is a Jew or Gentile? Not from some, (if not most) evangelists viewpoints. I heard of one minister telling a prominent rabbi that he had rather convert one single Jew to Christianity than convert over 50,000 Gentiles! What is the spiritual logic and reasoning to this? What is the over-all motive in such conversion desires coming from Christian leaders?
As is was from the beginning of Christianity, modern Christianity hinges on Jewish conversion and without that Jewish conversion Christianity losses its force, (Romans 1:16, 2:9-10) especially just before and at the End of Days that we are now approaching (Romans 11:25-28). It is the "Jew" that lends any spiritual credibility to the Church, not the Gentiles no matter how abundant they may be. This is why we see such a strong push among many of the Gentile churches trying in their minds, to return the church to its “Jewish roots” by incorporating Jewish style rituals into their Christian worship. They are doing whatever they can to incorporate themselves into the covenant that God has with Israel without the proper credentials while seeking to convert every Jew that they can away from of that very covenant! They are making the same spiritual mistake that the Jew-what-to-be Samaritians made when they tried to make Mount Gerizim God's provided place of worship instead of David's Jerusalem as the true place to worship (see St. John 4:20,22).
Both Christianity and Islam have used force and intimidation to persuade Jews to convert for centuries, but in societies where the Church don’t have absolute control over secular governments, proselytizing in many different forms and methods have become the norm. For example, never before until now has there been so many evangelical Christians dressing, eating, drinking, talking, and acting like orthodox Jews. They call themselves Messianic Christians, Hebrew Believers, Jews for Jesus, Completed Jews, as well as other names that indicates their mixing of Christianity with traditional Jewish beliefs. Most of their rituals are Jewish biblical rituals, and even including non-biblical Jewish traditions such as wearing yarmulkes, lighting Hanukkah candles, and conducting Seder Passover meals, all the while claiming that they only stick with the scriptures and the Rabinnic Jews whom they imitate to the core, are false.
Can you image the Medieval Christians of Europe expressing their Christianity by using Jewish traditions? In many places throughout Christian Europe it was forbidden on pains of death for Christians to have any dealings with the Jews or to even be present at a Jewish service, much less to eat, drink, dress, talk, or act like the hated Jews! So why now in this present day can we find in any big city’s phone book, a yellow-page listing of a messianic synagogue (in the synagogue section) when one was not even heard of before 1970’s?
This is a relatively new tactic used by the evangelicals since the old methods failed to yield the desired body-count. I use that term because this “tactic of disguise” is actually a military tactic in which I am surprised it has taken as long as it has for the evangelicals to use it. How many times in history has an army disguise itself to look, act, and talk like their enemy in order to wipe out the ones whom they were dressed and acting like? If true Judaism would ceased to be, it would only be a matter of weeks before the messianic movements would collapse. The reason why: There is no reason to keep working once a job has been completed.
Here is what I see the Messianic movement leaders saying to their students (in my own radical way):“If you are going to go out and trick the Jews into Christianity instead of killing them or forcibly converting them, you must be trained in the art of Jewish disguise.”
Rule # 1. “Never expose your true beliefs openly as they are, but make it sound Jewish.”
Rule # 2. “Don’t let him know you mean to wipe out the Jewish nation through conversion to a cult. Rather, make the Jew think that he is staying Jewish when in reality he is like Esau, giving up his birth right.”
Rule #3. “Though you hate the very depths of their souls because they are Jews, show them love-love-love. Ask them about their families, invite them over to your house, see if they need anything, and tell them about how you just love and support the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Now, here is your training card when conversing with a Jew using Biblical issues. Remember, make him think its Jewish!”
To see how far the Messianics will go to lure scriptural-ungrounded Jews (or evens Gentiles for that matter), into their cult is really quite amazing. For the sole purpose of converting Jews, they have created what they call a “Complete Jewish Bible” interpolated (not translated) by David H. Stren. Its not called a “Holy Bible” or “Holy Scriptures” but a “Complete Jewish Bible”. Stren just had to make sure he got that keyword “Jewish” on the front cover to create a Jewish lure. What Stren does with his so-called “Jewish” bible is essentially this:
1. He has taken the English language and mixed it with Hebrew sounding names (as do many Messianics with their own personal names) to give it that special Jewish effect.
2. He placed the books of the Old Testament in the same order as found in the Jewish Bible, since the Christian Bible has them in a different order than that of a Jewish Bible. In so doing, Stren sought to carefully eradicate any reminders that might appear to the Jew as being “different” or non-Jewish in the traditional sense.
3. He added Jewish Parashahs (weekly synagogue readings sections), so it will mimic a Jewish Bible used in traditional synagogue services. To stimulate Jewish conversion, the Jew don’t have to give up his Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath) for the Sunday worship anymore. This bible is intended to aid to Jew in continuing with this ancient Jewish Parashah practice.
4. He added the New Testament books (also with Hebrew sounding names) by which no separation distinction is made as it is found in a typical Christian Bible, in order to stress the belief that the New Testament is a continuation of the Jewish Bible instead of an addition. Additions causes questions, especially when the Jews were taught that their Jewish Bible is complete.
5. He added Jewish Bible-like sections to his New Testament so that it will appear similar and in continuance with the Jewish Bible. As the Jewish Bible is broken up into three sections called The Torah, The Prophets, and The Writings, Stren sought to continue that trait by adding sections of his own in the New Testament such as “Sha’ul’s (Paul’s) Letters to Communities” and “Sha’ul’s (Paul’s) Pastoral Letters”.
6. He added his own personal “corrections” in the New Testament which according to the publisher were: “mistranslations that resulted from anti-Jewish theological bias”. Meaning, anything that might offend the Jews as being anti-Jewish had to be removed or retranslated in order to make it easier for Jew to swallow.
The whole purpose of Stren’s messianic bible is the same as the whole purpose of the messianic movement in general, and that is to put forth enough Jewish appearance in order to trick and beguile as many people with Jewish backgrounds as possible, away from their covenant into another religion (or in this case a religious cult) as possible! It is kind of funny, but guess what the New Testament book of “Hebrews” is called in Stren’s bible? It’s not “Eve-reem” meaning “Hebrews” in Hebrew, but his book of Hebrews is called: “Messianic Jews”. Go figure.
What does this kind of childish-trickery evangelism say about the Jewish-disguised evangelist themselves? It says that they themselves believe their religious doctrine and beliefs must be disguised and sugar coated in order for it to be received by unsuspecting Jews, and without such deception it will surely fail. It also states that they are so fixated on seeing the Jews convert from their ancient heritage belief system that they are willing and able to stoop to whatever lows are necessary to see it accomplished. The New Testament by itself isn’t good enough to do the desired job of Jewish conversion in their minds, so it needs a little deception-help. In their minds and rightfully so, it will take an extraordinary effort to convert the chosen people out of being chosen so their offspring too will cease to be “chosen” - there is a three or four generation rule that whenever a Jew converts form the covenant, within three to four generations his offspring looses all identity as Jews (Exodus 20:5).
What does it say about the mainstream church organizations such as the Baptists and Assembly of God, who support the messianic movement efforts but still separate from them doctrinally? It says quite a lot. Such support actually remains me of the principles that the Palestinian suicide bombers use when they dress themselves up in Hasidic Jewish attire in order to blow themselves up from among the Jews. It is prohibited in the Palestinian society for a Palestinian to dress like a Jew unless he is doing it for the Palestinian cause of killing Jews, in which case, will bring him much praise for doing so from among the other Jew-hating Palestinians. Likewise, the mainstream churches are opposed doctrinally of dressing in TziTzis, having worship services on Saturday, and drinking four cups of wine on Passover, but they will give full support and blessings to these Messianics who practice these things for the cause a Jewish conversion into Christianity. They might wish to have them in their traditional church for a denominational feather in the hat, but as long as the Jew separates himself from his God-given covenant for some form a Christianity - well, that’s the main thing! The Jews must be saved at all cost from his covenant that the God of Israel gave them to a Christian covenant using the same logo.
Another display of messianic Christianity spiritual motive as well as their uprightness in heart is given in Jackie Mason’s 2006 lawsuit against the group “Jews for Jesus”. Everybody (especially the people in New York) knows Mason is Jewish (in his own words, “as a matzo ball”). What prompted Mason to file the lawsuit was a "Jews for Jesus" tract that featured an image of himself along with the words “Jackie Mason ... A Jew for Jesus!?” This tract was intended to make the unsuspecting Jew to think that Mason being the prominent Jew he is, had became a Christian and joined the Jews for Jesus organization. And if a well prominent Jew like Mason can became a messianic Christian, then surely they being Jewish should see about becoming one as well? At least that was the thinking of the tract creators. Susan Perlman, was the spokeswoman for Jews for Jesus, and said the tract was “good-natured” and “Shame on him (Mason) for getting so upset about this”. The tract was “good-natured”? Since when is a willful outright, deceiving, evil lie about someone “good natured”? Would she be "shamefully" upset if the Jewish organizations in her area printed and passed out pamphlets to messianic Christians that featured an image of her on the front cover that stated “Susan Perlman denounces Jews for Jesus”? Would this kind of pamphlet bearing her image be “good natured” too, or would it be deemed by her and others within the Jews for Jesus camp as: “those bad O Jews are trying to persecute us good O Christians” at that point?
What gets me is the lying audacity that groups like "Jews for Jesus" has when it comes to seeking-out Jewish conversion! To them, it is far better to lie in Jesus’s name and convert a Jew, than to be honest and let a unknowing Jew keep his / her faith! And what really gets me is the fact that other Christians will applaud their effects if they are able to pull-off a Jewish conversion, with such lying acceptance as “oh well, God can even use deceit to change a sinner’s heart”. But if the roles were reversed and Christians were giving up their faith to follow Judaism, then it would be high spiritual treason against the church. To me, its utterly disgusting that someone can even believe that God could glory in such a false-base foundation for the belief in Him.

Gaza, The Jews, and a Palestinian State

Until recently the last massive wave of Jewish expulsions occurred in Europe under Nazi rule before World War II, and from Islamic countries who were protesting Israel becoming a state. The most recent Jewish expulsion has occurred in August, 2005 with more to follow.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s decision to uproot Jewish residents from areas of their ancient homeland was greatly influenced by three major political announcements:
1. President Bush’s State of the Union address on June 24, 2002, in which he declared his vision for a Palestinian state.
2. Statement from the Quartet (United Nations, the European Union, Russia and the United States) in New York, on September 17, 2002, regarding the “Three-Phase Plan for Mid-East Peace”.
3. President Bush’s Roadmap to Peace in the Middle East that was unveiled to the world on April 30, 2003.
During this time President Bush was placing restrictions on loan guarantees to Israel in order to move Sharon towards his "unilateral" decision . One such pressure came on September 16, 2003 just four months after Bush unveiled his plan.
Sharon’s plan of uprooting the Jewish presence from Gaza was designed not only to ensure President Bush and the Quartet that Israel was committed towards their roadmap plan, but by doing so he was foolishly hoping to be able to keep some of the Jewish populated and military strategic areas in the ancient Jewish homeland in a final status agreement of the roadmap plan. Sharon’s plan seemed to have worked at least momentarily, as Bush assured him in a letter dated April 14, 2004:
"We welcome the disengagement plan you have prepared, under which Israel would withdraw certain military installations and all settlements from Gaza, and withdraw certain military installations and settlements in the West Bank. These steps described in the plan will mark real progress toward realizing my June 24, 2002 vision…."
In verifying that Jewish expulsion in Gaza was part of the United States roadmap plan President Bush seemingly rewarded Sharon by promising him in the same letter that future Jewish expulsions from Judea and Samaria would be averted:
"In light of new realities on the ground, including already existing major Israeli population centers, it is unrealistic to expect that the outcome of final status negotiations will be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949..."
However, just as soon as the Gaza expulsion was being completed, and in keeping up the United States’ tradition of breaking promises for their own interest, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack made the following statement in a State Department briefing on August 24, 2005:
"…with respect to our understanding of the settlements and settlement activity and with respect to our understanding about any changes to the 1949 armistice line, those are issues that must be agreed to by both parties. "
In other words, the Bush Administration was basically telling Sharon the following: “Thank you so much for making all of Gaza Judenrein, (a German-Nazi word, meaning, “cleansed of Jews”) and for using our Quartet-sponsored lie to convince the Israeli government and half of its Israeli citizens that Gaza should become Judenrein for the sake of peace of which you will never see. And by the way, unless the Palestinians who want all of Israel Judenrein to begin with, agree to allow Jews to stay in their ancestral land of Judea and Samaria, expect more US pressured / Quartet-sponsored Judenreins to be placed upon those ancient Jewish lands as well - yours truly, President George W. Bush".
Questions concerning this purposed Palestinian state:
  • In a free and democratic state of Palestine that implements free elections and full human rights that Bush believes will occur as a result of his roadmap plan, why couldn’t the Jews of Gaza, who have lived there for over 38 years, became citizens of this new Palestinian state in the eyes of any world governments including the United States?
  • Why didn’t any of the major world news medias who had something to report concerning Gaza on a daily basis leading up to the Jewish expulsion, never mentioned the idea of the Jews staying in Gaza under Palestinian rule? Since the Jews were not prisoners of the Israeli government, shouldn’t they have been afforded the opportunity to live where ever they wish to, especially in the same communities and homes that they have lived in most or all of their lives?
  • Is there something ludicrous about the idea of the free minority Jewish community in Gaza wishing to stay in Gaza under a Palestinian government? Why would a Jewish minority in a free and democratic Palestinian state of which all minorities would have full and equal rights, be out of the question?
  • If there is something ludicrous about the idea of the Jews living free and peacefully within a Palestinian state, then what does that say about such a state itself that President Bush is trying so hard to create? I mean, what is there to fear? Since Bush has spent 400 million dollars a year promoting a Palestinian state then surely in his mind he envisions that a Palestine democratic state will end its death threats to Israel and embrace security and equality for its Jewish minority? Yeah, right!
  • Will this new Palestinian democratic state that will supposedly live side by side with Israel in peace allow Jews from anywhere in the world to visit places within Gaza, Judea, and Samaria that holds significant ancient Jewish history, or will such state follow in the same Islamic footsteps with places like Saudi Arabia and not allow Jews to set foot in their land based upon their race and religion?

In January 2006 the Palestinians made known to all the world what type of government they wanted to represent them by overwhelmingly voting in a Hamas-lead government in their first parliamentary election since the death of Arafat! The Palestinians wasn’t forced to vote for either Fatah or Hamas, they could have so easely opted to simply withheld their vote in protest for either of the two terrorist groups if they were so anti-terrorism minded to do so. The world media portrayed this election to be between only Hamas and Al-Fatah. However, they weren't the only parties available for the Palestinians to hang their spiritual and political values on. The Palestinian people, as a people, gave the “liberal” party "Third Path" (one that at lest gave lip-service of recognizing Israel) a whopping two seats in the elections compared to the seventy-four seats that they as a people gave the terrorists of Hamas. As Hamas leader Khaled Meshal correctly stated just four days after the election, “The Palestinian people have chosen Hamas with its known stances.” Hamas’ covenant is even more explicit concerning the destruction of Israel than the PLO’s covenant ever thought about being. Therefore, what is the Hamas-electing Palestinians main motive for a state? Are their hearts for the most part, set on self-rule, or are their hearts for the most part, set on the destruction of the State of Israel? How a society votes tells an awful lot about the society itself.

Can a society that fully embraces the act of religious suicide for the purpose of murdering multiple Jews, ever love themselves more than they hate the Jews? That is a question to really ponder over concerning the Mid-East conflict as a whole. It was even the "moderate" West-loved, Palestinian poster-boy, President Abbas who referred to suicide murderers as "shahids (martyrs) who have entered the gardens of paradise". And if the Palestinians are incapable of loving themselves more than they hate the Jews, what kind of a state is the Quartet trying to create with these Palestinians?

I maybe a bit radical here, but I believe that the Gentile nations are spiritually not trying to merely create a Palestinian state for the sake of self-rule, but an actual Jew-killing state that will continue the Gentile conceived plan once known to us as the "Final Solution". This would be similar to evil prison guards placing of violent inmate in a cell with another inmate to harm him without the guards themselves being blamed for physically assaulting the inmate. The nations are wanting the Palestinians to do their Finial Solution dirty work for them. When one reads the Hamas Covenant and see just how far the Quartet is willing to go out of its way for the sake of a Hamas-electing Palestinian state, along with their illogical support at every level regardless of their terrorist activity, there is no another way to spiritually view it! The following is just one out of thousands of examples of proof that a real Gentile conspiracy exist. It's part of what I call "The Protocols of the Elders of the Goyim (Gentiles)":
  • On December 17, 2007 ninety Gentile nations (well over half of the entire nations on the globe) pledged 7.4 billion (billion with a "B") to Israel's most vicious and murderous enemy. The US alone (Israel's most trusted ally) pledged 550 million dollars to these Hamas-electing people. With this pledge came a warning from the Gentile world banks - not to the Palestinians on being responsible with such a great donation as to not use the money for the promotion of terrorism, Jew-murder, and the like, but to Israel. That unless Israel loosens their security checkpoints and allows the Palestinian terrorists more mobility, their world pledge amount of 7.4 billion will be a waste of time and money. In other words, it will be Israel's fault for having tight security in the first place against a people whose culture includes suicide bombings rather than a Palestinian fault for not controlling their own people in trying to dismantle suicide bombings that are very much apart of their evil culture! In the world's evil mind, it's the peaceful Israelis who should be pressured to find a way to make peace with the terrorist instead of pressuring the Palestinians into being responsible for their terrorist actions! Therefore, if Israel has the audacity to keep their tight security in place in an attempt to keep their murder rate down from people who wish to murder them, then the Gentile world powers will be watching with money in-hand to blame the Jewish victims of terror instead of the Gentile guilty terrorist themselves.
More Questions concerning Palestinians and statehood:
  • Is it possible for the Palestinians to rid themselves from their anti-Semitism which is in their political DNA and foundation as a people, once they have obtained statehood?
    To answer this question, one can simply look and see if the Gaza Palestinians have become more peaceful or more aggressive with Israel since they were given full control of Gaza in August, 2005. That's right. The Judenrein of Gaza can be a "measuring stick" as what is to come to the West Bank following its Judenrein!
  • Have more rockets than ever before been fired from Gaza or has less rockets been fired from Gaza than ever before?
  • Have terrorist attacks increased dramatically or have terrorist attacks decreased dramatically from out of Gaza?
  • Is stronger terrorist organizations such as Hezbolla and Islamic Army a.k.a. Al-Qudea operating in Gaza or is there less terrorist organization activities in Gaza since the Israeli pullout? Again, these are all tall-tell signs of how the Palestinian mind will change its course towards peace once statehood and further advancement of territories has been accomplished.
  • Is their ancient Jew-hatred that is openly expressed in every facet of life among the overwhelming majority of the Palestinian people (before and after 1948 and 1967) simply due to a lack of statehood? To answer this question, one has to honestly ask themselves what had the Palestinians rather have?
    A. Their own state along side Israel.
    B. Their own state with there being no State of Israel.
    Remember, what they had rather have is exactly what they will ultimately seek with religious fervor.
  • Would a Palestinian state next to Israel cause the Palestinians to decrease, stay the same, or increase their desire to destroy Israel? The Palestinians’ pre-1967 expressed thoughts should help answer this question. Also, when a Palestinian school textbooks recognizes Israel as a legitimate state, and when religious Imams in the Palestinian area stop demonizing Israel and condemn those who do, that’s when we will all know that the Palestinian people are truly seeking a peace with the nation of Israel. But everyone knows (except George W. Bush) that all of Islam will covert to Judaism and become strong world Zionist before that would ever happen!
  • Why didn't we hear anything about a Palestinian state between 1948 and 1967? Was this because of the 1300 years of Islamic hatred for the Jewish people that is embedded in the hearts and minds of the Palestinian people the real driving force for seeking statehood more exposed since 1967? And if so, wouldn’t statehood simply feed that ancient Jew-hatred? A historical view of what befalls innocent Israelis every time “peace” is mentioned by both Israel and the Palestinian leaders should help make a definite answer to this question possible.
  • Will a “State of Palestine” be friendly to America and to Western values after American and UN driving forces see to it that a Palestinian state if formed? A good look at the Palestinians jumping up and down with joyous glee right after 9/11 should guide the unaware soul to truthfully answer this question. However, if that isn’t enough, then the same question concerning Israel can be asked concerning America.
    Would the Palestinians as a whole and who would be living in an American created Palestinian state rather have:
    A. For the USA to contributing to issues in the Middle East including Palestine as it does today.
    B. A completely destroyed America, where all of its towers has fallen by the works of Palestine-sensitive jihadist.

The Jewish residents in Gaza were forced to uproot from their homes and businesses and hand it over to a people who shoot Kassam rockets into their neighborhoods and spray machine gun rounds into their school buses loaded with Jewish children. And for what reasons? There are two main reasons for such Islamic hostilities towards the Jewish people living in the region:
Reason #1. They are Jews.
Reason #2. Their religion is Judaism.

Let me put this into a dramatic perspective that is in tune with a harsh reality: Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was brought about mainly to give equal fairness to the black citizens as well as other minorities in the United States concerning employment opportunity. It was enacted so that any portion of the majority that might discriminate against them using race or religion would not do so. Now try to imagine this same United States government that enacted the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 wanting to create a new state, and let’s say they wanted to place it somewhere in the southern portion of the United States. In this new imaginary state, the United States government has plans for it to be inhabited by white people only. Every black persn that is living within the borders of this new state would have to be uprooted along with all their belongings including the bodies of their buried dead loved ones and moved out of the area just so only the white people could have their “black-free state”! Every single home of the black community and their businesses are to handed over to only the white people already living in the area. Now let’s continue to imagine that these white people that are to take the homes and businesses from the black communities within this proposed new state are not your average white Joe. Oh no, these white people are devoted Klu Klux Klan and Aryan Nation members who have elected David Duke (who like the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas is a Holocaust denier) to be their state governor. The people that are to drive these black people out of their homes and livelihoods are other blacks from surrounding states that have been so pressured by the United States government in order that they comply. Without going any farther with this analogy that sounds racially insane, let me say without any exaggerating whatsoever, that these are exactly the same principles of what was carried out in the ancient homeland of Israel against the Jews of Gaza by the prompting of the United States government along with the aid of the Quartet! Their goal: to create a Jew-free / Jew hating, Palestinian state!

How would the United States and the rest of the world respond if the Israeli government put into action the transfer of all Arabs, and not just some of the more radical Arabs, but every last one of them, not from Gaza or the West Bank, but from out of the borders of Israel proper? I can tell you how the United State would respond. They would stop all Israeli aid including military aid and all loan guarantees while sponsoring economic sanctions by themselves at the UN. The State Department would criticize Israel up one side and down the other while never ruling out military action in the form of a peace keeping force to “solve the crisis”. The cries of Appartite would ring through the House and Senate floors, and the news medias would absolutely go berserk. The world news media would not cease from calling Israel and Zionism racists like Russia did at the UN forum in 1975. Liberal CNN as well as conservative FOX news outlets would order thousands of new cameras for the thousands newly hired cameramen to video each and every Palestinian being force to leave their homes. The UN resolutions against Israel would be so numerous that the UN would have to hire hundreds of more employees to process them all, and the emergency meetings at the UN would be conducted once every week, even during the off season (January - August). The International Court of Justice (so-called), would have a happy field-day condemning Israel with every court session. If a security fence that has proven to reduce the mass murdering of Israeli citizens can draw world condemnation from the world governments (including the US and World Court) and from every media outlet from around the world, I can just imagine what kind of reaction that the world would express at the transferring of every Arab person within Israel’s borders. Yet, when it is concerning "the Jews" who are being evicted from their homes for simply being Jewish, and are forced completely away from an area that they have lived in most or all of their lives, the world governments and news medias then embrace this kind of action hook, line, and sinker, and then they have the cruel audacity to call it a “peace process”.

After all the political debate is said and done the bottom line of why each individual that was forced to leave the Gaza area in August, 2005 was due to their being Jewish and being identified as members of the Judaism religion. Every person in Gaza who started their morning prayers saying: “Allaahu Akbar” (Allah is most great), was permitted to keep their homes and livelihoods without interruption, but every person who began their morning prayer with “Shema Yesroel…” (Hear O Israel…) was automatically placed on the expulsion list, separated from their homes, businesses, communities, and forced to live far away in another part of the country! Even Christians (although greatly persecuted) are allowed to live in Gaza while there is no room at all for Jews, even though Jewish history of Gaza is twice than that of the whole Islamic Arab history! It simply boils down to a matter of political anti-Semitism and religious racism, period! Anyone who doesn’t embrace the Jewish expulsion of Gaza in light of the world’s goal of a Palestinian state is labeled an extremist! If you happen to be Jewish and still living in Gaza, you are not only an extremist but a criminal against a form of international law as well!

All kinds of political points can be made while debating over the Gaza expulsion of Jews. However, in the end, after all is said and done, and after all the political debate has been stated, there are a couple of events in history that will remain in comparison forever.
1. There were Jews who were forced to leave Nazi Germany and Nazi occupied countries simply because they were Jews.
2. There were Jews who were forced to leave Gaza and from the West Bank simply because they were Jews!

All of these anti-Jewish acts by the nations are just foundations of a larger Gentile goal. It is through these anti-Semitic wrongs that Palestinian pure evil can be granted sovereignty over the holy city of Jerusalem and its Temple Mount as a forever denial to the God of Israel and His covenant with the Jews. This is what makes the final status of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount so unique. It brings to head the full evilness of man against the righteousness of God!

As long as Israel is committed to giving up their land to the Arabs instead of “Arab/Muslim transfer” out of the land, they will never have a true peace. It’s simply impossible. The way to true peace is the exact opposite of what happened in Gaza. The key ingredient to having “no-terror” in Israel is having “no-Muslims” in Israel plain and simple. I will go on record and guarantee that if there are no Muslims within Israel’s borders every last one of the suicide bombs will completely cease, all terrorist activity within Israel will halt, all riots will stop, the Security Fence will come down, Christians can come back to their homes in Bethlehem without fearing for their lives, and Israel will become the peaceful nation on earth named after its capital Jerusalem - City of Peace. However, this will never happen without God's intervention. The world is incapable of discerning right from wrong and righteousness from evil. To the nations of the world it is a great sin to transfer a brainwashed terrorist society out of an area where people (we’ll call them Jews) wish to actually live in peace. They can't see that giving the Jews some terror-free space in their own ancient land will benefit even the nations of the world greatly.

I have nothing against an Arab national or any other race of people living in the Israel worshiping the God of Israel (see Isaiah. 56: 6,7) but I have everything against any Muslim (regardless of nationally) living within Israel’s borders while worshiping a demonic god named Allah who vehemently hates the Jews and the God of Israel while seeking the destruction of both! Does this sound too political incorrect? If it does, then please chew on the reality of the following statement for a while:

"We succeeded, with Allah's grace, to raise an ideological generation that loves death like our enemies love life. We will not abandon the way of Jihad and Shahada [Martyrdom] as long as one inch of our holy land is in the hands of the Jews.
- Hamas election video, December, 2005

Oh yes, for the sake of sanity, these people need to be transferred out of land of Israel until the God of Israel deals with them! But like the Philistines during the biblical era, these Palestinians (who not by coincidence carries the same biblical name - see Joel 3:4 KJV) are there in the holyland that God may show His glory to the Gentile nations. Like it or not, because the Quartet is setting up the Palestinians in the area of the temple where the court of the Gentiles was but were not allowed to cross into the Holy of Holies lest they would be put to death, the Palestinians represent the entire Gentile world crossing that forbidden threshold!

According to the Bible, Gaza and all its cities are an inheritance to the tribe of Judah. Gaza has been a place of Jewish residence on and off throughout history since the Jewish conquest by Joshua of the land of Canaan. That means Gaza has had Jews living in it from a time that adds up to being over twice the length of time Islam itself has been in existence!

Also Judah took Gaza with its border, and Askelon with its border, and Ekron with its border.
-Judges 1:18

King Solomon’s empire controlled Gaza and the Maccabees re-took Gaza.
In those days Simon camped against Gaza, and besieged it round about; he made also an engine of war, and set it by the city, and battered a certain tower, and took it. -1 Maccabees 13:43

There actually has been several Jewish expulsions form Gaza with each time the Jews returning back to establish a Jewish presence there. The Jewish expulsions include:
Jews of Gaza being expelled by Roman emperor Gavinius in 61 AD, the Crusaders, Napoleon in 1799, Ottoman Turks, Arab rioters in 1929, and the Egyptian occupation in their War of Annihilation in 1948. Gaza was even the place where the infamous Jew named Sabbatai Zevi proclaimed himself to be the messiah at the persuasion of his right-hand man “Nathan of Gaza” (Nathan Benjamin ben Elisha ha-Levi Ghazzati) in 1665. One has to wonder why this Smyrna-born, deeply devoted Kabbalist Jew would have traveled so far from his home to only be so close to Israel’s ancient homeland to proclaim his messiahship if Gaza wasn’t indeed part of Israel’s ancient land?

Because God has given the land of Gaza to the Jews of the tribe of Judah for an eternal inheritance, there is no doubt in my mind that the Jews will again live in Gaza, but without the political resistance from the present world governments. Who knows, by the world leaders allowing a murderous Islamic system to occupy Judah’s inheritance, the stage maybe being set for God’s judgment to come into motion that will cause the Jews to inherit their land even without even a struggle?

I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations, and have divided up my land, -Joel 3:2

Articles on Gaza:

2009 Update:
The Obama Administration began its term in 2009 by pledging another 900 million dollars towards Israel's arch enemy - the Palestinians.
The General Secretary of the UN, Tony Blair of the Quartet, and former US President Jimmy Carter has all called for a US dialogue with Hamas!

Palestinian quotes concerning Gaza taken from journalist Aaron Klein:
"We are proud to turn these lands, especially these parts that were for so long time the symbol of occupation and injustice, like the synagogue [the former "Neve Dekalim" synagogue] into a military base and source of fire against the Zionists and the Zionists entity" - Muhammad Abdel-Al, spokesman for the "Popular Resistance Committees"

"The old (Jewish) settlements gave the Palestinians resistance enough space to have big training. We never had this space and these possibilities when the Zionists were in Gaza" - Abu Muhammad, Senior base leader of "Islamic Jihad"

Antisemitism Among the Three Great Monotheistic Faiths

I believe its possible for a person to have genuine affection for the Jewish people and still produce antisemitic expressions and not realize it. I know that sounds strange and maybe even impossible, but one has to view the core root of antisemitism to get an idea of what I’m talking about. Antisemitism goes much deeper than any racial or national issues. Its base is a spiritual one. Adolph Hitler’s hatred for the Jew was not a physical based ideology but rather a spiritual based ideology. Hitler himself is reported to having told his associate, Hermann Rauschning: “I know perfectly well that in the scientific sense there is no such thing as a race. As a politician I need a conception which enables the order which has hitherto existed on a historic basis to be abolished and an entirely new order enforced and given an intellectual basis. And for this purpose the conception of race serves me well.”
Race, Jewish blood, and National Socialism, was only avenues by which Hitler’s spiritual hatred could be expressed in the physical realm. When we understand the full spiritual concept of what a Jew is, and what the Jew represents, it is only then we can begin to see the full concept of what antisemitism actually is. Without using the Bible as a spiritual guide, antisemitism is just another form of racism.

Any form of expression that seeks to separate the Jew from the covenant by which the God of Israel has appointed them is in reality antisemitic! Therefore, any attempt to convert the Jew away from his covenant with God (regardless of the honesty and compassion one might have for the Jew while doing so) is still an act of antisemitism against the Jew and the God of Israel.
Think of what converting the Jew away form the covenant really is doing. It's converting them away from the very element that made them "Jews" to begin with! In a sense it is spiritually and physically "Gentilizing" them. More importantly, it not only dishonors the Jews themselves but the very covenant God made with them. Seeking Jewish conversion can be an willful or an inadvertently expression of denying God’s covenant with Israel. If Jewish conversion were able to run its full course the way missionaries envision it, the Jews as a people along with the covenant itself would be annihilated. My challenge to any Christian disagreeing with me on this, is to examine and ponder what the results would be if the entire Christian world were to abandoned their Christian heritage and be converted to Islam? The same results that would happen to the Christian world are the results that would happen to the Jewish world if they all converted to Christianity.
Islam seeks to destroy the Christian world by converting Christians to Islam and they are doing so at a rapid rate. Islam is the world’s fastest growing religion in the world. The Christian world is becoming well aware of Islam’s threat to Christianity. While the Christian leaders are disgusted with Islam’s goal towards Christianity they forget that the same conversion rule applies to the Christians who fervently seeks Jewish converts. Remember, the Muslims believe they are right in their religion just as much and even probably more so than most Christians believe they are right in their religion. It takes an awful strong faith in Allah to blow oneself into a million pieces in their devotion to him. It’s a strange thing that Islam goes all out to try and convert Christians and Jews, while Christians go all out to and try convert the Muslims and Jews, but the Jews being the tiny minority of the three great monotheistic faiths, don’t attempt to convert either one of them to Judaism. There is a spiritual reason behind this that I will get to.
The annihilation of the God of Israel, or the effect of making the God of Israel powerless, (basically making His word return to Him void (see Isaiah 55:11) is the ultimate goal of antisemitism. General God-haters and antisemites alike know that once they can find a way to annihilate the Jews in any form, (either by physical death, religious conversion, and assimilation) they will in effect have killed God (see Psalms 115: 2,3) because the God of Israel is known by His covenant that He has established with the Jews and the nation of Israel (see Jeremiah 31:36). So I would encourage the Gentile Christians of whom many really do have a compassion for Israel and the Jews, not to try and pull the Jews away for what God has already laid down as a requirement for them which is their Torah (see Deuteronomy 4:2). If nothing else, encourage them to be Torah minded and let God deal with Israel as He so chooses.
It was never the intention of the All-Mighty that His Jewish nation to become like the other nations (Deuteronomy 7:6 / 14:2). Christianity and Islam are Gentile faiths of those other nations (see Deuteronomy 6:14). Though they use the Jewish scriptures as the foundation to their faith, their faith is Gentile oriented and Gentile maintained. Paul's conversion to Christianity caused his name to be changed from a Hebrew name of Saul to a Greco-Roman name of Paul (Acts 13:9). The name "Paul" remains a popular name among Gentiles while the name "Saul" (Solomon / Shlomo) remains popular among the Jews. I love to ask Messianic (Jew-want-to-be) Christians why that is. Paul, being the main author of the New Testament, traveled all over the Gentile world taking his message to them (see Romans 15:16) while Islam rejects God's covenant with Israel via Isaac (see Psalms 105:9,10) in order to accept their Gentle version of the Abrahamic covenant through the Gentile Ishmael (see Sura 37: 101-113). Christianity spread to the Gentile West via Rome while Islam spread throughout the Gentile Middle East via Mecca. But between both of these two massive bodies of land lies a very small strip of land that connects and a particular people with a eternal covenant. As with the onslaught of conversion efforts, isn't it spiritually strange that the Jews historically have received great persecutions in the form of physical attacks from both of the Christian and Islam nations (about 54% combined) while at the same time seeking the total conversion of the tiny Jewish nation, but you never hear or read about the Jewish people attacking either of them on the basis of their religion nor seeking their conversion to their faith?
Here are some amazing facts:

  • The two great world faiths of Christianity and Islam that makes up more than half of the world’s population (54% combined) seeks the total conversion of the tiny Jewish nation (0.22% of the world’s population) to their religion and belief system. To really get a good mental picture of just how offset Judaism is in population compared to the top two major religions of the world (which just happen to be the only two rivals of Judaism) take a look at the graph at the top of this article and notice the big green and red areas representing Christianity and Islam world populations. Then compared those areas to the tiny (hard to see) thin blue line representing Jews in Judaism between the colored areas of Buddhism and the other minority religions.

  • Evangelicals spend approximately 250 million dollars every year on Jewish evangelism including missions to Israel for the sole purpose of converting the Jew, while the Jews spend about 250 millions dollars less then the evangelicals in Gentile proselytizing. How about that for one-sided spending figures? Muslims countries spend billions per year on weapons and political methods intended for the killing off the Jews who will not convert to Islam. Any Jew who converts to Islam can become worry free of any terrorist attacks, just as any Jew who converts to Christianity no longer has to put up with eager missionaries looking for that Jew-feather to put in their Christian hat.

  • It is possible for a Gentile to be righteous outside of Judaism, but in the eyes of both Christianity and Islam, a Jew cannot be righteous hanging onto Law of Moses while converting to Christianity or Islam. This fact has made Judaism the most tolerant of the three monotheistic religions towards those outside their faith. A good question to ponder: During the Crusades when the forces of Christian Europe were fighting the Islamic empire from which both sides included the killing of Jews, who during this time were the Jews striking up a war with?

  • Both Christianity and Islam have made their boasts throughout their history that they, and only they are the new chosen people and are the spiritual replacement of the physical seed of Israel while the nation of Israel bends over backwards to downplay their being chosen of God.
    “God's Only 'Chosen Person' is Jesus Christ, and those in Him” - The Preterist Archive -
    web-site / Dennis Todd
    “The people who are really chosen by God are the Muslims community which has gathered under God’s banner without regard to differences of races, nations, colors, and countries.”
    - Sayid Qutb, Milestones along the Road, p. 238
    According to the ancient Talmudic traditions, Israel was the very last (far from the first choice) that God picked to be His chosen people. According to the tradition, it was only because Israel accepted the covenant at Mt. Sinai after all the other nations refused it was how Israel came to become God’s chosen people.

  • Islam and Christianity which together makes up more than half of the world’s population have their foundations based on Judaism. Muslims will not recognized the New Testament as being from God, nor will the Christians recognize the Koran being from God, yet both Christianity and Islam recognize the Torah being from God. This fact is even more amazing when one considers the Jews were not liked and appreciated in both Christendom and Islamic worlds, yet their Torah was.

  • Christianity and Islam are both based only upon religious creeds while Judaism is based on faith and a nation of people. If a Christian stops believing in Jesus he is no longer a Christian. If a Muslim stops believing in Muhammad he is no longer a Muslim. A Jew however, can stop believing in the Torah but he will still remain a Jew - an apostate Jew.

  • Looking at the three great monotheistic religions from the outside, it is impossible for Judaism to be wrong in foundation while the other two monotheistic religions are right in their foundation. This is because without the Torah the New Testament and the Koran has no foundation thereby voiding any claim as the true religion. Therefore, is possible for Judaism to be right in its foundation and the other two be wrong because the Torah is not dependent on either the New Testament or the Koran in establishing its foundation as a true religion. Likewise, If you were to ask a Muslim that if he found out that Islam’s foundation was indeed proven to be false, what religion would he perceive as the next obvious choice as the correct religion? He would more than likely choose either Christianity or Judaism as the correct true religion. If you then were to ask a Christian the exact same question about Christianity, he would pick Judaism as the obvious correct religion. But if you would asked an observant Jew the same exact question regarding Judaism, there is no religion outside of Paganism that he could point to as the next best, obvious choice. There is a spiritual reason for this that goes beyond the time-line as to when each religion began. At the End of Days, when all things then becomes obvious, the world comes seeking the Jews for spiritual guidance.
    Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. - Zechariah 8:23
To the evangelicals, conversion takes top priority over everything else concerning the Jews, even if it meant great hardships and even death for the Jews. The evangelicals would no doubt argue that it is through their Christian love that they labor to see the Nation of Israel converted to Christianity. However, this “top priority” and so-called Christian love actually undermines everything unique about the Jewish nation that sets Israel apart from the rest of the nations. It is the evangelicals’ goal to make the Jewish nation the same as all the other Christian nations on the earth through conversion. If the Christian world’s desire for the Jewish people’s conversion were made reality it would totally destroy the identity of the Nation of Israel as a people of Jews. I know there are going to be people who will not believe this statement because it paints their conversion desire for all Jews in a negative light, so I’ll pose these three questions along with the obvious answers:

  • Q. If all of Israel would have become Christianized in the first century would there be a modern Israel today?
    A. Christian teaching in all of the New Testament reserves no special physical place on earth for the Christian believer, not even the physical land of Israel. The teaching of Jewish Zionism is nowhere found in the New Testament, only the doctrines of “spiritual Jerusalem” and of the spiritual “Israel of God” are taught. If all the Jews converted to Christianity in the first century there would be no peoples of the earth to embrace the spiritual concept of living in the promised land God gave to the ancient Israelites, for there would be no spiritual significant reason to do so. See: Romans 2:28, Romans 9, Galatians 4:26, Galatians 6:15,16 , Revelations 21:2

  • Q. If all of Israel would have become Christianized in the first century would there be a people identifying themselves as descendants from Jacob (Israel) today?
    A. The New Testament teaches that true Jews are the ones who become Christians and that the physical seed of Jacob has been replaced by a spiritual seed of faith to the believer. Therefore, had all of Israel converted to Christianity in the first century there would be no peoples of the earth identified as the descendants of Jacob for there would be no spiritual significant reason to keep track or a remembrance of that physical seed. It is also note worthy that the apostle Paul (the main author of the New Testament) did not have any physical seed of his own and instructed others to follow him in a vow of abstinence if they were spiritually able to do so (I Corinthians 7:8). While this type of vow may not be harmful to a “spiritual seed” doctrine, it can only deplete the physical seed of Israel while directly avoiding the promise that the physical seed of Israel will as numerous as the stars heaven and as the sands of the sea. Therefore this type of revelation also undermines any promises concerning the land of Israel, being that this physical land, spiritually and eternally belongs to a very physical people.
    See St. John 4:20-23, Galatians 4:25,26, Acts 15:14-17 (the temple in Jerusalem)

  • Q. If all of Israel would have become Christianized in the first century, would the Law of Moses (by which Jews have remained Jews) be observed by any people on the earth today?
    A. The New Testament teaches that the Law of Moses has been fulfilled and is no longer valid to the Christian believer. Paul’s letter to the Galatians clearly confirms this many times over. Therefore, had all of Israel converted to Christianity in the first century there would be no people remaining on the earth today recognizing themselves to be under the Law of Moses. This would also cause there to be no religion in the earth that is totally based on the Law of Moses - which is exactly how Jews are known as Jews today! Therefore, had all of Israel converted to Christianity in the first century there would be no people on the earth whose spiritual foundation is the Law of Moses, because there would be no spiritual significant reason to keep the Law of Moses. This would result in there being no Torah-believing Jews (therefore no Jews) on the earth - only complete Christian assimilation.
    See Acts 10:13-16 (symbolic) Romans 3:20, Romans 7:4-6, Romans 10:4, Galatians 2:16,21, Galatians 3:13, Galatians 5:2-3,6.

It is an absolute fact that the total conversion of today’s Jewish people (which again, is the aim of every evangelical missionary Christian) would wipe out the Jewish nation from the earth. There would be no more physical seed (a.k.a. chosen people) identified as physical Jews on the face of the earth. I know this sounds mean but it’s the truth in principle, that today's evangelicals are no different (other than not being violent) than Hamas or any other terrorist group that seeks to destroy God’s covenant with the Jews of which the Law of Moses is connected! They just simply use different techniques and methods from those who use terrorism tactics, but which this wasn't always the case. Crusade Christianity and Inquisition Christianity were as every bit evil in terrorizing to Jews as today's Islamic terrorists. Hamas tries to murder the Jews away from their covenant while evangelicals try to covert the Jews away from their covenant. One of their biggest techniques is trying to convince the Jew that the Law of Moses is no longer in effect. There is an onslaught by both the Arabs and the Christians (the basic whole of the Gentile world) to takeover Jewish Israel. The Arabs want to make Israel an assimilated Muslim nation like all the other Muslim nations under the name of Palestine, while the Christians wish to make Israel an assimilated Christians nation like all the other Christian nations, and it’s sad that the secular Israeli government is at fault for allowing both fronts to continue as well as to grow.

I can understand a caring Christian’s true desire for a spiritual revival among the Jewish nation with the belief that only through the Jewish conversion to Christianity can a such a revival occur. However, Christians, and especially the evangelical missionaries, must realize that is wasn’t through the conversion to Christianity that the nation of Israel has been preserved and still survives to this day after three thousand years of persecutions. On the contrary, the fact remains that it was the Jewish people’s dedication to the Torah and the Talmud that has kept the Jewish nation intact as a people and as a nation throughout their tough history. It was not through the conversion to Christianity that brought about the modern phenomenon of the in-gathering of Jews back to Israel during this last century. If the Jews hadn’t been Torah minded during the past two thousand years, there never would have been a physical Jewish people for God to gather back into Israel in the first place. Therefore the great spiritual phenomenon of Jews living once again in their ancient biblical homeland is directly based both spiritually and physically to the Law of Moses and not to any forms of Christianity or Jewish conversion into it. The ingathering of Jews back into their homeland is based on God’s promise through Israelite prophets who just so happened to believe in keeping the Torah of Moses at the time.

If God was wanting all the Jews to become Christians instead of remaining as Jews, He wouldn’t have allowed the Holocaust to happen. Why would He, when in the eyes of the Christian world, the Jews of Germany were supposedly turning their hearts towards Jesus in massive numbers? It is important to understand as well as it speaks volumes, that the two greatest times of mass Jewish conversion to Christianity (as well as mass assimilation) was just before the destruction of the second temple in Israel and just before the Holocaust in Germany! Isn’t that strange? Christian missionaries should realize that God has a special and unique way of doing things when it comes to the Jewish people. He always deals with Israel as a nation, not by a conversion here and a conversion there. It would be in the best interest for the Jews if the evangelicals would stop trying to convert the Jews and interfere with what God has planned for them according to His word that He has specifically spelled out by the Hebrew prophets.
But this shall be the covenant that I will cut with the house of Israel: After those days, says the LORD, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And they shall no more teach each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, Know the LORD; for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sins no more. - Jeremiah 31:33,34

The Quartet Verses The Bible

The Bush Administration along with the Quartet (UN, EU, US, Russia) would say that the overall goal of the Middle East Peace Process is to have a two state solution with both states of Israel and Palestine being a viable democratic state that lives side by side in peace with each other. My question then becomes, what are God’s thoughts on the matter, and are the goals that the Quartet has planned for the Middle East that includes Israel in line with the goals that the God of Israel has planned for the Middle East?
Laying aside the Nazi tendency of Jew-murder at every level of the Palestinian society from cradle to the bomb-belt, the biblical questions must be asked:
  • Can any permanent non-Jewish government dwelling inside the ancient land of promise to the Jews be compatible with scripture?
  • Does UN Resolution 242 speak for the God of Israel who inspired the words of the Hebrew prophets?
  • What would such a God of Israel have to say concerning UN Resolution 242 and the whole concept of the Middle East peace process?
  • What would the Hebrew prophets of old say concerning the modern Middle East Peace process?
My understanding of scripture along with so many others are not harmonious with Quartet politics, and the Quartet politics are not pro-Bible no matter how hard some try to blend the two. To be "Quartet correct" is to be biblically incorrect! For example, no matter how much George W. Bush professes to be a believer in the Bible as the word of the All-Mighty and his creator and is the final authority in all aspects of life, his Saudi oil influenced roadmap plan for Israel is in total contradiction with biblical prophecies concerning Israel that are contained within the Bible, one of many being Ezekiel 37:21-28. So given the hell-bent desire that the Quartet has for a Palestinian state in the middle of ancient Israel, what would be the full impact of consequences to the spiritual world as well as the physical world if such a state were to be set up on the most holiest site known to mankind?

Political movements have always glorified the non-political God of Israel but in a way you might not think. The Bible never records God being found in the will of the nations, but that man’s will (even in the form of national power) is always outside the perfect will of God.
Arise, O YHVH; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in Thy sight. Put them in fear, O YHVH: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. - Psalms 9:19,20
As darkness glorifies the light of its brilliancy so too does world politics glorify the God of Israel. So what is at stake concerning this world’s roadmap plan? How about the sovereignty
of God Himself and His ability to be a keeper His eternal word?

I believe that God has allowed the world powers of man manifesting itself through what we see as the “roadmap plan” to challenge His will, His sovereignty, and even the human mindset of His very existence. As we have seen in the biblical stories such as Noah before the great destruction, with Gideon with only three hundred at Midian, Israelite slaves before Pharaoh's army, the boy David before the giant Goliath, and Hezekiah before one hundred and eighty-five thousand Assyrians, God loves to have the odds stacked against His servants in order for His awesome power to be displayed (see Exodus 9:1416).

Without a doubt this world UN-sponsored roadmap plan is being perfectly set into place so that the redemption of Israel can take place based upon God's glory and not man's. The spiritual magnitude to the answers of these following questions is absolutely phenomenal :
  • Why has the physical nation of Israel risen nationally on the scene after two thousand years only to have the four strongest political movements of the entire earth (US, UN, EU, Russia) move in a joint effort against her over her most spiritual center and capital - the status of Jerusalem?
  • Is it because the Quartet really believes that the Palestinians need Jerusalem as their capital in order to have some sovereignty that will bring peace to the region?
  • Is there an underlying conception that the Quartet simply wishes subconsciously or otherwise to stop the God of heaven and earth from declaring His truth in Jerusalem?
Thus saith YHVH; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a City of Truth; and the mountain of YHVH of hosts the holy mountain. -Zechariah 8:3

What else could Israel expect from an oil dependent / Saudi-loving USA, an EU (Europe) that gave the Jewish world the Holocaust?
What else could Israel expect from an UN that gave a moment of silence for the Palestinian murders
of whom lowered the UN flag at half staff in honor of Jew-murdering Yasir Arafat
of whom honored Arafat's grave site,
What else could Israel expect from a Russia that produced the Nazi-like ghettos known as the Pale of Settlement,
of whom produced Nazi-like Kristallnachts known as "pogroms"
of whom gave birth to a Stalin and has declared through the UN Zionism to be racism,
of whom produced the Nazi-like Mein Kamph known as "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion"

Oh what a unholy Quartet! Which of any of these leaders from the Quartet speaks as God's ambassador on earth? If none of them do then of whom do they speak and by whom are they motivated to do and act as they do? Let God's word speak to the nations.
O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of YHVH. - Jeremiah 22:29

What is the most sensitive part of the roadmap plan? We know that from all of the territory being disputed that it is the city of Jerusalem that is the most precious prize that is being sought by both the Palestinians and the religious Jews. But going even deeper than that into the very root known as "the final status of the roadmap plan" the ancient temple mount then becomes the issue of issues. This temple mount is the spiritual center of Judaism and it is what the Quartet is pushing very hard to keep away from the God of Israel by giving it permanently to the Mein Kamph-reading Palestinians.

Why after two thousand years has this small piece of real estate known as the temple mount became such a hot item to the Quartet in their "Jew-keep away" policies? Does the Ezekiel prophesies of a third and final temple (Ezk. 40-48) foreseen on the very same spot have any bearing on the Quartet’s decision making procedures whatsoever?

I maybe viewed as a religious fanatic for believing that the Ezekiel prophesies from centuries ago do in fact play a role on the Quartet's decision making of today, but I'm not the one wishing to appease murdering religious "Palestinian" fanatics by giving them a piece of land so that they can please their god Allah as the Quartet is wishing to do, especially when there is absolutely no logical reason for doing so in the first place! The fact is that no political decision can be made over the status of Jerusalem and over the temple mount without appeasing and displeasing the spiritual forces that be.

The Quartet will either make an alliance with the Muslim god of Allah (the spiritual force that drives them to unnaturally suicide-bomb themselves in order to, like the Nazis, murder as many Jews as possible) or with the eternal covenant God has made with Israel. There is absolutely no way around this!
Here is a spiritual rule of thumb: The more evil the Palestinians become, the more of a right and wrong issue the final status of Jerusalem and its holy temple mount area becomes. Case and point: The"Finial Solution" did not die with Hitler. Not only does the ruling parties of the Palestinians have a direct link to Adolph Hitler himself via Haj Amin al-Husseini their Grand Mufti of the Al-Fatah movement that became the PLO, that became the US-supported PA, but also the elected party of Hamas' covenant reads like a Islamic version of Mein Kamph! It is no wonder that the actual Mein Kamph in its Arabic translation is one of the best sellers among the Palestinian people. If these spiritual offspring of Hitler are given a permanent claim to the most holiest site in the Bible by the Quartet world powers, then they will have lifted Hitler's ideology of Jew-murder above all biblical principles!

In this way the Quartet seeks Hitler (the Jew hater) over the God of Israel! In all of this God’s glory of His rightness (or righteousness) over the status of Jerusalem is displayed before the world, for He will judge the Gentile nations over this very status accordingly (Zech 14:12). And the deep sins of the nations that are anti-God of Israel will be revealed as such according to the righteousness of the very God that they hate via the Jews! Awarding the Palestinian Nazis the temple mount for their "spiritual" capital (which is the "spiritual" motivation of the Quartet) is hundreds of times deeper and greater of a sin than that of Antiochus Epiphanes when he desecrated the temple by sacrificing a pig on it in 167 BCE.
Make no mistake, there is a spiritual law behind why the Palestinians who being quite small comparatively to other peoples of the world, holds the record as a people from where most acts of terrorism in the world originate. Yet this fact does not hinder the Quartet from desperately seeking above all else to give this evil people a permanent home that would negate the eternal promises to Israel. This is due to the fact that the Palestinians are living within the boundaries of a promised covenant of another people that causes them to be so terrorism minded. They are like a virus that is harmless in its natural habitat but becomes enormously destructive if placed into a foreign host. If the Palestinians were living outside of the boundaries of ancient Israel and not seeking to annihilate the covenant that God has with Israel, they would not have become and known as the terrorist minded people that they are today.

Therefore, it's in the form of hatred and denial towards the covenant that God has with Israel and the fact that they are the only non-Jewish people living within the covenant land reserved for only the Jewish people, that causes the most negative effect of evil to arise from within these wicked Palestinians people. And it's within the confines of this evilness found within the Palestinians that the Quartet seeks a permanent home that will host this very evil hatred towards the "holy covenant" in the minds of the Quartet, forever! Again, what would be the effect on the spiritual world as a whole if the Bible is the true Word of God and the God of the Bible is the true keeper of His word?
Let me play devil’s advocate where a Palestinian state exist and everything evil that the Hamas-electing Palestinians as a people represent wins out over truth and justice - truth and justice being the righteousness of God (Ps. 89:14). With such a Quartet sponsored Palestinian victory, there is no God of truth and justice to mankind! That is right, in a place where three years olds are taught that Jews are dogs, pigs, and monkeys in accordance with their holy Koran and holy hadiths, and where suicide bomber mothers rejoice to their Allah as they pass out candies at their sons (and daughters) martyr-funerals, and are not judged and destroyed for their evil sins, but instead are given the land of what the God of Israel states as "His land" in order to show triumph over this God, then there is no God!

In such a Godless world it would be this Palestinian people who becomes the chosen over God’s original chosen (which is what they claim) and to be the guardians of the most holy place on the earth and is awarded world recognition via statehood by the greatest powers of mankind. In such a place there would be no god, and if there was He certainly would be too weak to keep his word over the status of his chosen people as evil triumphs over "His" truth and justice.

I say this with certainty because I know the Hebrew Bible and its promises to His chosen people, and I know the context in which it is was written. You Christians who wish to take the approach that God is finished with the Jews as His chosen people, (by reason of doctrine you side spiritually with the Nazi-inspired Palestinians) the same rules applies because Christianity is based upon the Hebrew Bible and the Hebrew people and not the other way around. Your Christian God would be the same God who left His promises to Israel-His chosen, unfulfilled, while the Dome of the Rock shrine that stands at the most holiest site on the earth bearing the words “God Has No Son” as a rebuke to your Christianity, and is given grand status of statehood by the unholy Quartet! However, it's the All Mighty who has allowed such a challenge to His word and promise to come forth by the UN world powers that be, and they are just tools that His glory made be known.
The Quartet’s movement creates a decision that every Jew and Gentile must make. Are you on the side that moves and operates to silence God and His word, or are you on the side of the Bible and all (and I do mean all) of its promises to His chosen people? In this the physical land of Israel and its boundaries truly becomes a valley of decision. A valley that I have both walked in physically and spiritually.

"I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, (meaning “judgment” in Hebrew) and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel (see Deut. 9:29) whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. (This sounds like a Quartet Gaza/West Bank doing to me) Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: (same as the Kidron Valley that divides east and west Jerusalem.) for there will I sit to judge all the heathen (Gentiles) round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great (the Quartet’s pro-Palestinian wickedness?). Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of YHVH is near in the valley of decision." - Joel 3: 2, 12-14

Oh, but look at the promise of deliverance from the Quartet world powers:
YHVH also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but YHVH will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am YHVH your God dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers (Palestinians?) pass through her any more. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the House of YHVH, and shall water the valley of Shittim. - Joel 3:16-18

Martin Luther and the Jews

Martin Luther is the father of Protestantism who lead a movement of a body of people from out of the Catholic Church. Any protestant today is basically a protestant due of the works of Martin Luther. The word protestant means “one who protests” and it relates to Luther’s “protest” when in 1517 he nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. If it was not for Martin Luther or another reformer like him coming on the world scene, most all of Christendom today would still be partakers of the Catholic Church as they were before the reformation movements.

In other words, without Luther’s reformation movement, one would basically have to enter Christianity through the door of the Catholic church - the very church that is now known by most protestants to be "The Mother Whore" as depicted in Revelation 17:5. These things should be kept in mind when reading Martin Luther’s writings concerning the Jews below.

At first, Martin Luther attempted his Jewish conversion techniques by using flattery in which he asserted that “Christian love” was what was really warranted for Jewish conversion and condemned the past forceful methods used by the Catholic Church.
"If I had been a Jew and had seen such dolts and blockheads govern and teach the Christian faith, I would sooner have become a hog than a Christian." - Martin Luther, That Jesus Christ Was Born a Jew, in Luther's Works, Vol. 45, - 1523 CE

The evangelicals of today that seek Jewish conversion still use this same "love-the-Jew" method when it comes to answering Christian history. After twenty years of trying unsuccessfully to convert the Jews by using flattery, Luther did what Muhammad had done after he failed to convert the Jews in Arabia by using flattery. Luther, (like Muhammad) then turned from a Dr. Jekyll into a Mr. Hide.

For some reason it makes many Christians and Muslims very upset when those bad O Jews refused to go along with Christian and Muslim love and decide to stay with the covenant God gave them. Take a look at some of Luther’s Christian-loving suggestions he sent to the government leaders of his day and see if the following quotes sound anything like a German leader four hundred years later around the time of 1933 -1945:

“First, their synagogues should be set on fire and whatever does not burn up should be covered or speared over with dirt so that no one may ever be able to see a cinder or a stone of it.” “Secondly, their homes should likewise be broken down and destroyed. For they perpetrate the same things there that they do in their synagogues. For this reason they ought to be put under one roof or in a stable, like Gypsies, in order that they may realize that they are not masters in our land, as they boast, but miserable captives.…”
“Thirdly, they should be deprived of their prayer-books and Talmuds...... ”
“Fourthly, their rabbis must be forbidden under threat of death to teach any more…”
“Fifthly, passport and traveling privileges should be absolutely forbidden to the Jews. For they have no business in the rural districts since they are not nobles, nor officials, nor

merchants, nor the like. Let them stay home.”
- Martin Luther, On the Jews and Their Lies - 1543

What is really eerie about Martin Luther is his religious notion of justifying the horrors of the Holocaust four hundred years before it ever happened:
“Even if they were punished in the most gruesome manner that the streets ran with their blood, that their dead would be counted, not in the hundred thousands, but in the millions, as happened under Vespasian in Jerusalem and for evil under Hadrian, still they must insist on being right even if after these 1,500 years they were in misery another 1,500 years, still God must be a liar and they must be correct. In sum, they are the devil’s children, damned to Hell…..The Jews too got what they deserved.”
- Martin Luther, Of the Unknowable Name and Generations of Christ - 1543

The Nazi Connection:
Adolph Hitler was a big fan of Martin Luther insomuch that he refers to him as a “great reformer” in his book, Mein Kampf (page 213). For anyone to be admired by Hitler speaks volumes about one’s character, especially if Hitler himself took the time to record his admiration of an individual to be included in his autobiography / manifesto for all to publicly acknowledge.

Luther’s historic antisemitic words were used at many Nazi rallies throughout Germany. Even Luther's Schlosskirche (Castle Church) was adorned with draped Nazi flags in 1933 as well as the first Nazi archbishop having his consecration there. >

During Hitler's rise to power on February 24, 1920, he delivered his 25 point "theses" of the Nazi Party's agenda. The term "theses" was a deliberate copy of terminology from Luther's historic "95 theses" that Luther placed on the door of the Wittenburg Cathedral.

Kristallnacht, the infamous “Night of Broken Glass” where on November 9, 1938, Jewish business shops were smashed, synagogues burned, and ninety-one Jews were murdered in the middle of the streets of Germany, was actually considered a commemoration of Luther’s birthday.

Julius Streicher, the one who yelled “purimfest 1946” just seconds before he was hanged at Nuremberg > argued at his trail that he had never said anything about the Jews that Martin Luther himself had not said 400 years earlier. In Streicher’s mind, he was just following in Luther’s footsteps who often described the Jews as “the people of whom Christ said was the devil”. Therefore, it is more than fair to say that Luther’s antisemitism helped lay the ground work for Nazism and the Holocaust!

The fact that there was a person named "Martin Luther" that attended the January 1942 Wannsee Conference of which set the "Finial Solution" to the "Jewish Question" into auction > and of whose very minuets of such a meeting are the only ones to survive the war, doesn't speak favorably of the popular spiritual leader of whom he was most likely named after.
Supporters of Luther today will use the excuse that Luther was only able to walk in a limited amount of “light of the Gospel” due to the world and culture that surrounded him throughout his life. They will also add that his comments concerning the Jews were just errors of his "carnal flesh" and not of his true in-heart experience of the “new-birth”. Any such defense of Luther causes me to start asking questions that demand an answer:
Q. Since when did the word of God and its life changing power become subjected to man’s culture surroundings or upbringing?
There are New Testament verses that reads: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God" (Romans 12:2) and "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good" (Romans 12:9). I personally have a DVD documentary that focuses on the causes of Palestinian terrorism that is entitled “From Cradle to Grave; An Inside Look at the Culture of Death”.

If we use this same defense for today’s Palestinians as many do for Luther’s antisemitism, we would have to somehow minimize the murderous acts of the Palestinian suicide bombers and rocket shooters due to their culture and upbringing! For some reason Walid Shoebat, (a once Palestinian terrorist but now a Christian) who was raised in a Palestinian culture of death environment was able to make a full exit of Islam of all things and even became one of the most dedicated Zionist that I had ever seen. He didn’t feel the need to continue his terrorizing the Jewish Israelis after his Christian conversion, so why did Luther in his Christian experience?

Q. Why did Luther take a more righteous approach when he started out dealing with the Jews?
Apparently, Luther when wishing to use flattery on the Jews for conversion sake, was able to take a non-violent approach towards the Jews during the time and culture in which he lived, so why couldn't he continues to do so throughout his Christian life whether trying to flatter them or not?
Q. If the amount of Christian light during the in which Luther lived was Luther's problem, why didn't this limited amount of Christian light effect all other Christian men as well like Elector Joachim of Brandenberg and Henry Bullinger who lived during the same time as Luther but rebuked Luther for his statements against the Jewish people?

Q. Why did Luther go beyond his culture of his day?
Obviously the nobles and leaders wasn’t antisemitic enough in Luther’s eyes which lead him to call upon them for more acts against the Jews, which is exactly what Hitler and the Nazi party did before they came into power in 1933. If Luther was held captivated by his time, culture, and surroundings, why wasn’t he satisfied with actions of the leaders towards the Jews in his day. Why did he feel that they wasn’t doing enough, and pushed them to do even more?

Q. Did Luther actually read what he translated?
Luther was able to translate the Hebrew and Greek / Latin scriptures into German. When translating, the translator has to know relationship of words, idioms, structure of sentences, verb tenses, and so on. It takes deep concentration to translate and Luther’s translation of the scriptures are considered by scholars to be a very good translation.

As a translator, Luther had to concentrate on the words he was translating, and therefore, there should be absolutely no reason for him not to fully “take-into heart” the words that he believe to be the word of God and strictly apply them to his heart and everyday life regardless of what era he lived. If running Luther’s statements of hatred concerning the Jews through a Christian perspective, let alone the Sixth Commandment, here is how the book of First John would depict Luther concerning his hatred for the Jews:
  • In darkness until now (I John 2:9)
  • Not of God (I John 3:10)
  • Abides in death (I John 3:14)
  • A murderer (I John 3:15)
  • No eternal life abiding in him (I John 3:15)
  • A lair (I John 4:20)
  • Cannot love God (I John 4:20)
Q. Why couldn’t Luther get it right after years of "turning the world upside down"?
It was twenty-six years after Luther’s reformation movement first began and just three years before his death, when he made his most vicious statements concerning the Jews. It’s apparent that Luther’s hatred of Jews wasn’t due to Christian immaturity. His Jewish hatred was expressed during the time that his spiritual grow was at its peak and his spiritual maturity fully expressed. Proverbs 4:18 states: But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more to the perfect day.

Luther’s later writings about the Jews reveal that the supposedly compassion that he had towards the Jews at the start of his ministry, was nothing more than a gimmick to get the Jews to convert away from their covenant, when what he really had was a dark hidden secret of hatred for them all along. I fear that this maybe the case for most (perhaps not all) evangelicals today who like Luther, pacifically target the Jews for conversion.

Q. How would the majority of Christendom throughout history have responded to such statements coming from Rashi (a great Jewish sage) about Christians?
Would the defenders of Luther today be so kind towards Rashi if that were the case? If Jews were murdered for such things as unfounded rumors of Jewish blood libel rituals and false accusations of Talmudic writings which resulted in the Talmud itself to be put on trial and burned (as if to burn it at the sake) I can only image how the French Jews, British Jews, and Russian Jews during the last nine hundred and fifty years would have been persecuted in the most horrific ways over Rashi’s comments if he had stated anything close about Christians as to what Luther said about the Jews. I could just imagine how the evangelicals of today would use such a quote from Rashi in order to degrade Judaism in their efforts to beautify Christianity to potential Jewish converts.

It’s funny, but even Luther, not knowingly complimented Judaism when trying to flatter the Jews: “Our fools, the popes, bishops, sophists, and monks--the crude asses' heads--have hitherto so treated the Jews that anyone who wished to be a good Christian would almost have had to become a Jew.” - That Jesus Christ Was Born a Jew, in Luther's Works, Vol. 45, - 1523

Outside of his antisemitism Martin Luther really wasn’t half bad, which is somewhat of an indicator of just how deep antisemitism can run in the soul as it brings down what would normally be a good man. There is no doubt that Luther did much good in exposing the corruption of the Catholic Church at the time in which he lived, but anyone who wishes to praise Luther for his works of “Justification” should also be more than willing to criticize his antisemitism as for what it was.

The reason why the Lutherans are not black listed by other protestant denominations who supposedly loves Israel and the Jews is simply because they are fellow protestants that sprang up by the event of Luther’s separation from the Catholic Church. Other protestant denominations will disagree with the Lutherans on doctrinal issues such as predestination and infant baptism, but other than passive lip service, and recent comments by Evangelical Pastor John Hagee, I personally have never heard of a protestant denominational leader make it a point to straight forwardly denounce Luther’s antisemitism.

There have been many great Christian reformers who have never even came close to speaking as viciously against the Jewish people as did Martin Luther. Yet recently, as well as in the past, Hollywood has chosen to glorify Luther over all of them while never mentioning the fact Luther was a vicious antisemite! Therefore, one must ask just why that is?
