Fools for God: anti-Zionist Christian preachers

Subverting the Bill of Rights with Elena Kagan, Rabbi Lerner and Prof. Peller

The move to abolish America’s legal universalism (the same law applies to all)

“There can’t be free speech for everyone”

Legal universalism runs contrary to the Talmud

The so-called Network of Spiritual Progressives (NSP) is led by Rabbi Michael Lerner. At a June NSP “Strategy Development Conference” in Washington, D.C. the group worked out the details of their plan to overthrow the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights by converting the U.S. legal system to one “based on empathy—for each person, depending on their circumstances — as opposed to one based on a rule of law that values equal protection for all.”

The movement is accompanied by a lot of righteous rhetoric against corporate take-overs and peace activism, but it appears to be little more than a front for a Leftist-Talmudic (pillar of chesed) political counterpart to Right-wing Talmudic (pillar of gevurah) neocon politics.

Gentile Right wingers typically take this charade at face value and jump into the fray against Talmudic Leftists on behalf of Talmudic Rightists. Consequently, we have the amusing spectacle of Right wing anti-Zionist Christian preachers denouncing “liberal Jews” while allying with pillar of gevurah rabbis such as Daniel Lapin. Meanwhile gentile Leftists ally with pillar of chesed Rabbi Michael Lerner against Lapin. Of course both pillars support Judaism.

Siding with one covert pillar of Judaism against the other is an ancient streak of self-defeating myopia among Right wing goyim, some of whom fancy themselves as experts on the religion of Judaism.

Gary Peller, a Constitutional law professor at Jesuit Georgetown University spoke at Rabbi Lerner’s Network of Spiritual Progressives conference. In his speech he denounced the concept of neutrality before the law as a “sham ideology.” Prof. Peller argues for special privileges for special groups. For example, Peller castigated a 1977 Supreme Court ruling that  refused to obstruct a neo-Nazi march in Skokie, Illinois, which was home to a large population of Judaic “survivors of the Holocaust.”

In the Skokie case Prof. Peller believes the holiness of the saintly “Holocaust survivors” trumped the rights of the  neo-Nazis. Peller’s legal theory demolishes the most precious aspect of the First Amendment — protection of the freedom of speech of society’s most despised outsiders.

Peller argues for a two-tier Talmudic legal standard: “There can’t be free speech for everyone if you have taken away the right of Holocaust survivors to come out that day…unless you think it must come at the cost of severe emotional distress.” For that reason, he said, “any just legal system must look at the effect of law on people.”

The June conference also featured a “Shabbat Service and Torah Study with Rabbi Debora Kohn and Rabbi Michael Lerner.”

The Network of Spiritual Progressives organization firmly believes that future Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan will be the key to substituting the kind of “empathy” which Georgetown U. Law Professor Peller advocates in place of our nation’s Bill of Rights protections.

The Network proposes Kagan as a counterweight to Antonin Scalia, a legal “conflict” that will draw hot reactions from partisans of both justices. The macabre joke that the partisans will surely miss is thatScalia is as gevurah Talmudic as Kagan is chesed Talmudic. Heads they win, tails we lose.

What the Presbyterian Statement Didn’t Say About Israel

July 19, 2010

By N. H. GORDON

http://www.counterpunch.org/gordon07162010.html

The Presbyterian Church USA at its General Assembly (GA), July 1-10, 2010 held in Minneapolis, MN passed the recommendations of its Middle East Study Committee (MESC) after negotiations among the leadership of the MESC and the GA committee for Middle East Affairs.  Among the recommendations of the Church are

  • The end of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and diversion of water resources;
  • An immediate freeze both on the establishment or expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and on the Israeli acquisition of Palestinian land and buildings in East Jerusalem;
  • The relocation by Israel of the Separation Barrier to the 1967 border;
  • The withholding of U.S. government aid to the state of Israel as long as Israel persists in creating new West Bank settlements;
  • Equal rights for Palestinian citizens of the state of Israel;
  • The cessation of systematic violation of human rights by any party, specifically, practices of administrative detention, collective punishment, the torture of prisoners and suspects, home demolitions and evictions, and the deportation of dissidents;
  • Bethlehem to be a free and open city accessible to all people.
  • Calls on the U.S. government to exercise strategically its international influence, including making U.S. aid to Israel contingent upon Israel’s compliance with international law and peacemaking efforts.”

There is much that is good in these and other recommendations; however there is much that is not said.

All settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem are illegal under international law.  An immediate freeze both on the establishment or expansion of settlements is not sufficient.  Military aid to Israel should be contingent on not only Israel’s creation of new West Bank settlements but also on its continuation of the occupation, its ignoring of United Nations Security Council resolution including resolution 194 calling on the right of return or compensation of Palestinian refugees.

The recommendations do not use the word ‘apartheid’ with respect to Israel even though clearly the laws and practices of the government of Israel constitute apartheid as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid as a crime against humanity.  Further, the Presbyterian Church (USA) document refers to the wall/fence as a separation barrier which is presumably more palatable than wall/fence; however ironically separation barrier implies apartheid, which is the Afrikaans word for ‘separateness’ or ‘apartness’.

Furthermore, the GA Middle East Committee added the recommendation:

  • Reaffirm Israel’s right to exist as a sovereign nation within secure and internationally recognized borders.

This addition reassures the friends of Israel who had feared a rupture in the Christian-Jewish dialogue without this addition, and is another example of yielding to the wishes of these friends of Israel even though the ramifications of this statement are offensive to Palestinians who see the use of the word ‘right’ as approval of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the formation of the state of Israel.  Furthermore, to insist on security for Israel, which has the most powerful army in the Middle East, is a reflection of the indoctrination of Presbyterians, as true for all Americans, by decades of hearing and reading only the Israeli narrative.  In this narrative Palestinians are referred to as terrorists seeking the destruction of the people of Israel.  However, facts and past behavior indicate that it is the government of Israel which has sought to destroy the Palestinian people. That the amendment contains the qualification of internationally recognized borders is constructive considering that Israel’s borders are ever expanding and have yet to be defined.

Finally, this added amendment does not contain the affirmation of the previous Presbyterian position which is “the right of the Palestinians to self-determination, including the right to the establishment of a neighboring independent, sovereign state toward the end of establishing a just and durable peace”.  It appears that the friends of Palestine do not have a sufficiently important voice to be heard.

Presbyterians also commend for study the Kairos Palestine document (“A Moment of Truth”) written by Palestinian Christians and published in December, 2009. They refer to the often-neglected voice of Palestinian Christians and direct the Church’s to be formed monitoring group for the Middle East to create a study guide for the document.  While this is good, the recommendation does not accept the Kairos document’s call for boycott and divestment from companies that profit from the occupation. While the Church endorses non-violence, boycott and divestment as a tool of non-violent resistance is rejected.

The committee also added the recommendation that calls on the Israeli and Egyptian governments to limit their blockade of Gaza to military equipment and devices and to guarantee adequate levels of food, medicine, building supplies and other humanitarian supplies and to allow free commercial exchange in and out of Gaza.  This amendment falls far short of existing humanitarian and international laws which declare the blockade of Gaza as an illegal punishment of 1.5 million people.  The blockade must be dropped with no qualifications except for the importation of weapons.  However, for the sake of balance, importation of weapons to Israel must also cease!

Finally, Part Three of the MESC report contained two sections one by a rabbi from Jerusalem and a longer section titled ‘A Plea for Justice’, written by two members of the MESC, both professors one a biblical scholar and the other a Palestinian-American.  The ‘Plea for Justice’ was a document that attempted to address the seldom heard facts regarding the Palestine/Israel conflict.  It drew heavily on Israeli sources: human rights groups, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and various Israeli authors.  The document decried the human rights violations perpetrated by both the Israelis and the Palestinians, citing only US government sources and Israeli human rights groups. Part III along with its maps drawn by the United Nations, the World Food Program, B’Tselem and PASSIA were rejected as one sided.

The decision to remove “A Plea for Justice“ from the report may be viewed as Presbyterians yielding to the wishes of the friends of Israel who see Palestinians as unworthy of justice and Jewish Israelis as righteous victims.  When will Presbyterians as a whole come to see the equality of both Palestinians and Jewish Israelis before the bar of justice and in the “eyes” of God?  “If God could shed tears, he must have wept.”

N H Gordon is a professor of statistics and member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) Middle East Study Committee. Professor Gordon, a life-long Presbyterian and currently a church Elder, is a Palestinian-American who experienced, first hand, the 1948 Palestinian Nakba.


Mel Gibson and Roman Polanski: what’s the difference?

July 18, 2010

James Edwards at The Political Cesspool has figured out the difference between Mel Gibson and Roman Polanski:

Mel Gibson says a bad word, and he becomes a pariah.

Roman Polanski drugs, rapes and sodomizes a 13 year old girl, and he’s a hero.

What’s the difference?

Mel Gibson, whatever his flaws, is a Christian.

Roman Polanski is Jewish.

That’s the difference.

More differences here.


The Crucifixion of Mel Gibson

July 13, 2010

http://www.thepoliticalcesspool.org/jamesedwards/2010/07/12/the-crucifixion-of-mel-gibson/

The William Morris Endeavor Agency has announced that they’re dropping Mel Gibson from their talent roster, and will no longer represent him. Because he used a “bad word”, about no one in particular, and in a moment of passion:

I’ve just learned that WME Entertainment actually fired Mel Gibson the day before his longtime Hollywood agent Ed Limato’s death last weekend. I’m told what happened is that the news media reported last week there was a tape of Mel Gibson making a racial slur. And last Friday, WME board member Ari Emanuel “woke up at 3 AM and emailed his partner Patrick Whitesell that ‘we can’t represent a guy who said the N-word’.” So the agency dumped Mel Gibson on July 2nd, and the next day, on July 3rd, his agent Limato died. Today the 2-minute recording was released by the celebrity website RadarOnline.com which initially broke the news that on it Mel Gibson allegedly uses a racial epithet during a fight with Oksana Grigorieva, the mother of his child: “You’re an embarrassment to me. You look like a f***ing bitch in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault.”

Let’s be absolutely clear about what’s going on here. This isn’t about “the N word”, or about Grigorieva’s unproven claim that Mel Gibson slapped her around.

It has nothing to do with any of that, and I’ll prove it.

This is Hollywood paying Mel Gibson back for the unforgivable crime of making a movie about Jesus Christ several years ago. And for refusing to condemn his own father when Hollywood scum attacked Hutton Gibson for having his own views about World War 2. And for Mel telling a cop that Jews are behind all the wars of the world, which might’ve been an exaggeration, but not a huge one. They certainly were behind the Iraq quagmire – over in Israel, the main newspaper bragged in 2003 that the Iraq War was a Jewish creation:

The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.

In the course of the past year, a new belief has emerged in the town: the belief in war against Iraq. That ardent faith was disseminated by a small group of 25 or 30 neoconservatives, almost all of them Jewish, almost all of them intellectuals (a partial list: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Eliot Abrams, Charles Krauthammer), people who are mutual friends…

So it’s just terrific for the Israeli media to boast about Jews dragging America into a no win war, but if Mel Gibson mentions Jews and war after having a few drinks, he’s an anti-semite?

Spare me.

But mostly it’s about The Passion of the Christ. The Hollywood elites hated that movie more than any other theatrical production in history, and they hated Mel Gibson for using film to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. They declared war on him as soon as the project was announced, and stepped up their hate campaign after it was released, after they tried, but failed, to block its release. In New York City, run by the same kind of people who run Hollywood, the authorities even dispatched 20 cops from the Hate Crimes Unit to go watch the movie for possible “hate crimes” violations. Here’s a reprint of an article that originally appeared in the New York Post: (You can also read about it here.)

‘HATE’ COPS GO SEE MEL MOVIE

By LARRY CELONA and WILLIAM NEUMAN

March 2, 2004 — The cops at the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Unit are passionate about their work – and they’ve all been told to watch Mel Gibson’s controversial new movie about the last hours of Jesus.

Some Jewish leaders and Christian scholars charge the movie, “The Passion of the Christ,” could lead to an upsurge in anti-Semitism because of the way it portrays Jews and their role in Jesus’ death.

Aware of those concerns, the Hate Crimes Unit supervisor, Inspector Dennis Blackman, ordered the 20 detectives under his command to see the film after it opened last week.

One NY elected official who’s tight with the Hollywood crowd used the power of his political office to intimidate studios into refusing to have anything to do with the movie:

In 2003, Hikind and a group of supporters protested Mel Gibson’s film The Passion of the Christ. He led about 50 Jewish leaders and supporters to the Fox News Corp. offices in Manhattan in a demonstration, chanting “The Passion is a lethal weapon against Jews.” Hikind was vocal in his anger against the movie, saying: “It will result in anti-Semitism and bigotry. It really takes us back to the Dark Ages … the Inquisition, the Crusades, all for the so-called sin of the Crucifixion of Jesus.” After a News Corp. spokesman announced that they had passed on the film, Hikind warned other movie companies that they too should not distribute the film.

Another group who share the same ethnic and religious background of Ari Emanuel actually wrote to the Attorney General of the United States, demanding that Mel Gibson be prosecuted for making the film:

Los Angeles, Alta California – March 16, 2004 – (ACN) A Jewish group led by Ephraim ben Laibl says that Mel Gibson’s film “The Passion of the Christ” violates “Hate Crime Laws” and wants US Attorney General John Ashcroft to prosecute the Actor-Director. Ephraim ben Laibl is the founder and director of the Messiah Truth Project and is often featured in The Jewish Press, The Jerusalem Post and at USAJewish.Com. He also serves as CTO for Pirchei Shoshanims’ “Schulchan Aruch Learning Project” and is a producer of Israel National Radio.

Ephraim ben Laibl and his Jewish supporters are presently distributing a petition in the Jewish communities of Los Angeles, New York City and other major cities throughout the USA. When enough signatures are collected, the petition will be forwarded to the US Department of Justice for action. The petition effort is getting significant publicity in the Zionist media including on radio here in Los Angeles.

The petition reads:

Gibson’s “The Passion” in Violation of Hate Crime Statutes
Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” through purposeful rewriting of the Christian Gospel mythos has, itself, become an anti-Semitic diatribe which, since it’s February 25, 2004 release resulted in hate crimes against Jews, Synagogues and Jewish Cemeteries in cities throughout the US. Mel Gibson’s unbiblical and a-historical account of the “crucifixion” story has taken Hutton Gibson’s claims that the Holocaust is “fiction,” even one step further.

Just as Adolf Hitler described the 300th anniversary performance of the Oberammergau Passion Play as “a convincing portrayal of the menace of Jewry” in 1934, Gibson and Writer/producer Tom Fontana’s 2004 use of extreme graphic and excessive violence set up and perpetrated at the urging of “the Jews” in their portrayal displays a clear prejudicial bent against the Jewish faith.

United State law defines “bias related” or “hate crime” to mean a “designated act that demonstrates an accused’s prejudice based on the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, family responsibility, physical handicap, matriculation, or political affiliation of a victim of the subject designated act.” Depending on the state, criminal and / or civil laws may apply, as well as recently enacted Federal statutes.

We implore US Attorney General John Ashcroft and the US Department of Justice to evaluate the anti-Semitism clearly presented in Gibson and Fontana’s portrayal, and ask that civil, criminal, and Federal hate-crime laws, as appropriate, be utilized not only against the perpetrators involved in each and every act which it has encouraged, but against the directors, producers, and screen writers responsible for the work itself.”

The Hollywood-DC-New York axis of evil have never forgiven Mel Gibson for making what they regard as the most disgusting movie in history, and they’ve been trying to bring him down ever since. The people who run Hollywood absolutely despise Jesus Christ, and they despise Mel Gibson for making a movie about Him. That’s what this is about. It has nothing to do with “the N word.”

I said I’d prove it, so here goes.

This is about “the N word”? What a laugh. First off, this was a private conversation, which is nobody’s else’s business. And it took place in the heat of passion. What man in his right mind wouldn’t be upset about the mother of his infant child running around dressed provocatively? Everyone talks differently when they’re extremely angry, even liberals. And Mel Gibson never used the word about anybody but potential rapists. Since when do rapists deserve respect? Contrast this to the reaction to Bill Clinton’s racial insult of Obama. When Ted Kennedy refused his request to endorse Hillary for president instead of Obama, Clinton angrily retorted that “a few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.” But that’s okay, because Bill Clinton never made a film about Jesus Christ, so he gets away with that sort of thing.

Secondly, I’m sick and tired of hearing about how horrible “the N word” supposedly is. It’s nothing but the Latin word for black, as anyone with half a brain knows:

Nigger is a noun in the English language, most notable for its usage in a pejorative context to refer to black people (generally people of African descent), and also as an informal slang term, among other contexts. It is a common ethnic slur. The word originated as a term used in a neutral context to refer to black people, as a variation of the Spanish/Portuguese noun negro, a descendant of the Latin adjective niger, meaning the color “black”.

That’s all it means. That’s all it’s ever meant. It’s even in the Bible, for crying out loud! Yes, it only has one G, but that’s how the word was spelled back in King James’ day, and and it has the very same meaning.

Moreover, “Acts of the Apostles” – in the New / Second Testament – mentions at least one black who was officiating as prophet and teacher in the early Christian church at Antioch: “Among the prophets and teachers of the church at Antioch were Barnabas and Symeon ( also called “The Black Man”), Lucius ( from Cyrene), Manaen ( the foster-brother of King Herod), and Paul – The Holy Bible, Living Bible Edition, Pocket Edition, International Bible Society, Tyndale House Publishers, 1995. In one German translation of the New / Second Testament, by Ulrich Wilken, published by Furche – Verlag of Hamburg, Germany, in 1970, this Symeon bears the nickname “< der Neger>” in German, meaning “the negro” in English. However, a number of versions in German, French and English read: “ […] Simon called Niger”.

The reason it became a “bad” word is because of the behavior and lifestyle of the people it referred to. They’re the ones who turned the word into an insult, not white people. Just as the word that replaced it, “colored”, became pejorative after it was associated with black people, and was replaced by “Negro”, which became a “bad” word after years of news announcers saying “police are looking for two Negro males”, and was replaced by “black”, which has now become yet another bad word because of the behavior of people it refers to, and has been replaced with “African-American”, which will no doubt be declared “racist” itself in a few years.

Ari Emanuel, the head of the William Morris Endeavor agency, emailed his colleague to say “we can’t represent a guy who said the N word.” Really? Check out some of WME’s other clients – P. Diddy, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and many other rappers who toss the N word around like confetti. Just do a quick search for the lyrics of any of those people, and you’ll see that their “songs” are filled with “the N word” . But Ari Emanuel hasn’t announced that he’s dropping any of these performers.

Emanuel’s WME agency also represents Ice Cube. Ice Cube is not only a rapper, he’s also a movie star. He became famous in the early 1990s with the group Niggaz With Attidude, who made songs like “F*** Tha Police.” He left the group a little later, after a bitter dispute, which he blamed on their “white Jew” manager, Jerry Heller. He wrote a song attacking his former group called No Vaseline, in which he went on about the “white Jew”, and told the group they needed to put “a bullet in his temple.” Ice Cube is also a member of the white-hating Nation of Islam cult, and he recorded songs about killing white “devils.” Here’s one sample:

“Bust a Glock; devils get shot … when God give the word me herd like the buffalo through the neighborhood; watch me blast … I’m killing more crackers than Bosnia-Herzegovina, each and everyday … don’t bust until you see the whites of his eyes, the whites of his skin … Louis Farrakhan … Bloods and CRIPS, and little old me, and we all getting ready for the enemy”

About this time, Ice Cube discovered and mentored a group called Da Lench Mob. He gave them their big break by featuring them on his album AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, and then went on to produce their debut album, and their follow up album. Here are some of the lyrics from Da Lench Mob, who also hate white “devils” and want to kill a whole bunch of us:

“Swing by on the pale guy … break him in the neck … the guerrilla with the poison tip … shaking pinky up on a dull-ass ice-pick … this is Lench Mob … devil, what you want to do; when you see the boot, knew your head is hoohoo”

“Dropping verses, casting curses, throwing these hexes on the devils … respect to Farrakhan, but I’m the jungle-don, the new guerrilla, top-ranked honky killer … what do blacks do; they just keep on blowing devils away … evil f***ing cracker … I’m tightening up the laces to my steel-toed boots, so I can walk, stomp; we stomp this devil down in the park”

“We’re having thoughts of overthrowing the government … the brothers and sisters threw their fists in the air … it’s open season on crackers, you know; the morgue will be full of Caucasian John Doe’s … I make the Riot sh*t look like a fairy tale … oh my god, Allah, have mercy; I’m killing them devils because they’re not worthy to walk the earth with the original black man; they must be forgetting; it’s time for Armageddon, and I won’t rest until they’re all dead”

“The crackers ain’t sh*t; chase them out of the jungle; now raise up off the planet … we get the 12 gauge; shot to the chest … we hitting devils up … Da Lench Mob, environmental terrorist … I gripped the Glock and had to knock his head from his shoulders … I got the .30[6] on the rooftop; pop; pop; so many devils die … make sure I kill them … lynch a thousand a week if it’s necessary”

That’s the group Ice Cube discovered, mentored and served as producer and executive producer for both their albums. And today he’s not only still represented by Ari Emanuel’s WME agency, he stars in kid’s movies, and makes production deals with Disney.

Ari Emanuel has no problem with Ice Cube, but Mel Gibson has to go?

Hollywood can’t tolerate Mel saying a naughty word, but turns a man who recorded song after song about killing white people into a lovable kid’s movie star?

And what about “Snoop Dogg”, another WME “artist”? He’s also a member of Louis Farrakhan’s hate whitey cult. And that’s just the beginning. I won’t even try to list all his songs about killing “niggas” and cops; you can look them up if you want. A few years ago he told Rolling Stone magazine that in 2003, ten years after hitting the big time and making tens of millions of dollars, he was actually running a string of hookers, because he loved the real pimp lifestyle. He wasn’t some wannabe who just rapped about running prostitutes; he actually did it.

Snoop claimed in a 2006 interview with Rolling Stone magazine that unlike other hip hop artists who’ve superficially adopted the pimp persona, he was an actual professional pimp in 2003 and 2004, saying “That sh*t was my natural calling and once I got involved with it, it became fun. It was like shootin’ layups for me. I was makin’ ‘em every time.” He goes on to say that upon the advice on some of the other pimps he knew, he eventually gave up pimping to spend more time with his family.

He often wears Pittsburgh Steelers jerseys and caps. That’s because he’s a fan of the Rollin’ 20s Crips, a murderous Los Angeles gang.

In 1993, as his career was just taking off, he was charged with murder. He was driving the vehicle from which his bodyguard shot and killed a man. They claimed self defense, and an “urban” jury acquitted both of them, just as another one would let OJ walk a few years later.

And this guy presents no ethical problems for Ari Emanuel and the rest of the Hollywood crowd, but Mel Gibson is beyond the pale because he said one naughty word?

You can believe that if you want, but anyone who’s not completely brain dead knows that this isn’t about “the N word.”

Now here’s where some idiot liberal will chime in that it’s different, and I’m comparing apples and oranges, because Mel Gibson is white, so he’s not allowed to use that word, but black people are, and it’s fine for them to record song after song about killing white people because that’s “art.”

Really? Then how come there are no skinhead bands signed to big Hollywood labels, being represented by the William Morris agency, if songs about killing members of a racial group are “art”?

And it’s BS to claim that black people are allowed to use the “N word”, but white people aren’t.

And tell it to Charlie Sheen. He’s another actor who’s also represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency. He’s the star of one of the most popular shows on TV, Two and a Half Men, which he’s been starring in since 2003.

And in 2005, Charlie Sheen left this message on his ex-wife’s answering machine:

Yea, I just got your other email and I am a little confused because you told me that was something you only told a couple of people, and this and that, and I just, again you continue to be deceitful and mischievous and sneaky, and you’re a f***ing liar. Okay. You’re a f***ing liar. So, you know what it’s like, f*** you. Okay, I hope you rot in f***ing hell. You’re a piece of sh*t f***ing liar and I hope you f***ing rot in hell. So f*** you. I hope I never f***ing talk to you again you f***ing c**t. F*** you. You’re a coward and a liar and a f***ing nigger alright, so f*** you.

Now, granted, Ari Emanuel wasn’t the head of the agency back in 2005. But he’s the head of the agency now. Has he fired Charlie Sheen because “we can’t represent a guy who said the N word’? Uh, no. In fact, the William Morris Endeavor agency just negotiated a huge new contract for Sheen which pays him nearly $2 million an episode.

But Charlie Sheen never made a movie glorifying Jesus Christ.

That’s why they’re going after Mel Gibson. I told you I’d prove it, and I did. Ari Emanuel’s agency has lots of performers who use the “N word”, including the very white Charlie Sheen.

Their hatred of Mel Gibson has nothing to do with the naughty word he said.

They hate Mel because he made a film about Jesus Christ, and they despise Jesus Christ. That’s why they put him through hell back in 2003 and 2004, calling him all sort of vile names, accusing him of all kinds of despicable motives and schemes, sending cops out to screen the movie for hate crime violations, using elected officials to intimidate studios into not touching the movie, and demanding that the US Attorney General lock Mel up for making the movie.

These are the people who run Hollywood, New York and DC. They hate you, they hate your Lord and Savior, and they hate everything about us and our way of life, and they want to destroy it.

Ari Emanuel is scum. He’s not worthy to even be in the same room as Mel Gibson. In 2002, he was sued by one of his own employees, who claimed that not only did Emanuel regularly make racist and anti-homosexual remarks, he also let a friend of his run a pornographic website out of the agency office. The suit was dropped after the woman was paid over $2 million in a settlement. His father was a terrorist. He was part of the terrorist group that blew up a hotel killing 91 people. But because some terrorists are more equal than others, he was allowed into the United States where he became a doctor, and his wife became a “civil rights activist.” His son now heads up the most powerful agency in Hollywood, and one of his other sons, Rahm, is the de facto president who gives orders to the figurehead Barack Obama.

But scum like the Emanuel’s are in charge now. They make up the DC-New York-Hollywood axis of evil, and what they’re doing to Mel Gibson is just a little taste of what they’ve got planned for the rest of us. If you want to know their ultimate plans, just read an account of the Communist Revolution in Russia back in the early 20th century, which was orchestrated by people just like Ari and Rahm Emanuel and their terrorist father and “civil rights activist” mother.

They’re going after Mel Gibson because he dared to make a film about their arch enemy, Jesus Christ, the One they’ve despised for 20 centuries.

They can’t get to Him, so they’re crucifying Mel Gibson instead.


“Christian-Zionism” Is Trouble for Israel and the USA

July 11, 2010

By Frank Schaeffer

[MysteryWorshiper’s note: I’ve posted this article by Schaeffer because it discusses the cult of Christian Zionism. In addition, the moderator of Anti-Zionist Canada has made an excellent critical review of Schaeffer, presented below:

While I’m in agreement with most of the obvious statements by Schaeffer there’s still some things that irk me in his assessment.
First off I don’t believe it was/is “Evangelical theological/biblical ‘reasons'” that have deformed US foreign policy. It was Talmudic, Zionist Jew policies that were surreptitiously slipped into the State Department and the White House over the past century or so that have done the dirty work of subverting those erring, ignorant Christians who, for whatever reasons, succumbed to this notion that by giving their unstinting support to this blatant, rogue, apartheid, racist, supremacist state duplicitously designating itself the center and epitome of the Biblical Israel, they would somehow be fulfilling Biblical prophecy.
I believe that Saint John the Divine, in his letters to the seven churches of Asia (Revelation, 2:9), gave the world fair warning of these times when he quotes Jesus Christ’s clear warning to future generations:
“…I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
Any Christian or any unbiased person who has studied the question of these Ashkenazi interlopers knows that the Israel of Biblical times refers to all the twelve tribes that then composed it, not, as the Zionists would have people believe, only those of the tribe of Judah, the one tribe, that incidentally, was booted out because it was too warlike and cruel to get along with all the others in the region.
Again, it’s taken the past three hundred years and more of this incessant poisoning of the Christian churches by these rabbinical Talmudic tyrants to reach the final stages that we’re now at. The only direct fault I see for Christians (and non-Christians are no exception to this either) is that due to their trust and belief in their religious leaders, they fell prey to this false notion of the false Jews.
We overlook the big bucks that these phony Jews have poured into anti-Christs like John Hagee and by doing so again reveal the fact that other warnings by the Christed One directly related to this issue of false prophets also have been disregarded by those who profess to be “Christian” Zionists.
I particularly take exception to this comment by Shaeffer: “The state of Israel has every much as a right to exist as countries like the United States, New Zealand and Australia where the land was also (relatively recently) forcibly taken from the previous occupants. And yes, Israel suffers from slander from many hypocrites in the world (Arab and otherwise).” Both he and the Huffington Post are too Jew influenced, to the point where they don’t see, or don’t want to see, the actual reason why Rothschild invented and then established this so-called “state” called Israel in the midst of the Arab world. Schaeffer sounds like the typical shabez goi Israeli apologist who, slyly appears to be questioning this cancerous growth upon the body politic yet constantly qualifies himself by pretense.
Israel is a parasite as Eustice Mullens clearly shows and one that, left to exist, will drain the lifeblood from not only the people of Palestine and the surrounding Arab regions but from the global family of man itself. It must be dismantled somehow and its illegally gotten license to potentially use its nuclear arsenal against the world removed from the Middle East.
You cannot argue or debate or reason with a cancerous growth or with a parasite. It’s the nature of these entities to “do their own thing” regardless of the ill effect upon the host that they live off. It therefore becomes incumbent upon the host to do something to dislodge that which is slowly sucking its life away. To try and twist this basic fact of nature into some type of Talmudic hypothesis that admits otherwise is a sign of mental derangement.
That said, we have to keep hammering home the fact that these false prophets of death and deception who hide behind their mask called “Israel” are NOT the original Hebrew inhabitants of a small portion of the former Biblical area known as Palestine but are in truth hucksters and terrorists and liars and cheats who will do anything and everything that a human parasite is capable of conceiving in order to justify their existence within the context that they now operate. In this sense Frank Shaeffer and the Huffington Post are only adding additional subterfuge and falsehood in this article.]

July 08, 2010 “Huffington Post” – -Some of the nuttiest American religious leaders today (and in the past) have latched on to one form or another of Christian Zionism. These days Reverend John Hagee (pastor of a mega church with thousands of members in Houston) is a leading Far Right Evangelical and ardent fan of Israeli expansion into the disputed West Bank.

And the bestselling books of the Left Behind series of novels have fed the Evangelicals’ fixation on End Times prophecy and the “imminent” return of Christ. To put it mildly, the Evangelical theological/biblical “reasons” have deformed US policy and made America act against its self interest. This has also harmed the state of Israel.

Here’s a story in the New York Times that handily illustrates the price both America and Israel pay for allowing Evangelical mythology to inform, or should I say deform, US foreign policy.

According to the New York Times, “Tax-Exempt Funds Aid Settlements in West Bank” (July 6, 2010), evangelical fans of the Apocalypse are hock deep in aiding and abetting illegal settlements while our government looks the other way!

HAR BRACHA, West Bank — Twice a year, American evangelicals show up at a winery in this Jewish settlement in the hills of ancient Samaria to play a direct role in biblical prophecy, picking grapes and pruning vines.
Believing that Christian help for Jewish winemakers here in the occupied West Bank foretells Christ’s second coming, they are recruited by a Tennessee-based charity called HaYovel that invites volunteers “to labor side by side with the people of Israel” and “to share with them a passion for the soon coming jubilee in Yeshua, messiah.”

“Israel exists because of a covenant God made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob 3,500 years ago — and that covenant still stands,” Mr. Hagee thundered. “World leaders do not have the authority to tell Israel and the Jewish people what they can and cannot do in the city of Jerusalem.”

Conflict, Armageddon and the “End Times” is the Christian-Zionist agenda, not helping a child in Tel Aviv or Gaza live happily, have a normal life and walk to school safely. The Evangelicals who “love” the state of Israel would rather see an innocent Jewish or Palestinian child blown up in a rocket attack as long as the “Promised Land” is “fully reclaimed” to fulfill their harebrained ideas of biblical prophecy. With “friends” like the Christian Zionists Israel needs no enemies. With “citizens” like the Evangelicals rooting for Armageddon, America needs no traitors.

Hold the emails! The state of Israel has every much as a right to exist as countries like the United States, New Zealand and Australia where the land was also (relatively recently) forcibly taken from the previous occupants. And yes, Israel suffers from slander from many hypocrites in the world (Arab and otherwise).

That said, American Evangelicals have an unhealthy affinity with the idea of religion-based states. A bedrock article of faith among American Evangelicals is that America had “Christian origins,” and that today America must be “restored” to our “Christian heritage.” The “Puritan heritage” of America is constantly cited as evidence for our need to “return” to our biblical roots. (In order to “fulfill Biblical prophecy,” so-called “Dispensationalists” have been working to ensure that the world’s Jews return to Israel and occupy all of Palestine. Dispensationalists have been leading “pilgrims” to Israel ever since since Pastor Jerry Falwell’s first visit in order to win financial and political support for the Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.)

As I discuss in my book Crazy For God Puritans believed that they were carrying “authentic Christianity” to America, especially as written in the Old Testament. They said that they were on a divine mission, even called themselves; “the New Israel” and a “city set upon a hill.” John Winthrop (governor of Massachusetts Bay) transferred the idea of “nationhood” in biblical Israel to the Massachusetts Bay Company. Puritans even said the Bible confirmed their status as the New Israel!

It is no coincidence that the self-consciously religious states of the Middle East are in perpetual conflict with other equally religion-based countries, for instance Islamic states like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia (that postures as the keeper of Islam) and Iran are in perpetual conflict with Israel the Jewish homeland. And it’s no coincidence that America has paid dearly in blood and treasure in one Middle Eastern-incited and/or actual military entanglement after another because of our theology-based relationship with the state of Israel as well as our meddling in the affairs of the Islamic states like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan.

What would you expect but conflict when modernity tangles with Bronze Age tribalism that’s been given a biblical Evangelical “End Times” twist?!

As the Times story illustrates, Evangelical hardliners have a “prophetic” agenda when pushing Israel to keep all the West Bank and to be “tough on the Palestinians” that has nothing to do with what might bring peace (let alone justice) to the actual Jews and actual Arabs who are fated to be neighbors. Gleeful — shamefully tax-deductible — war mongering in the name of Jesus and/or “protecting Israel” — from a safe distance, say from Houston! — has everything to do with Evangelicals’ ideas about what will hasten the “return of Christ” and nothing to do with what is actually good for the Israelis, Palestinians and Arabs, let alone the rest of us who long for peace.

Was Jesus a Christian Zionist?

July 10, 2010

Was Jesus a Zionist? Yes, says James Lewis in his essay “Anti-Zionist Christians” in American Thinker. Lewis, who ought to be writing for the “Israeli Thinker,” is angry because a reverend from the Disciples of Christ church wants to divest from the apartheid state of Israel (until the 400-mile wall is torn down). In Lewis’s mind, Jesus would bless the following statements from selected Christian Zionists:

  • Rev. Dr. Jerry Falwell: “[E]very act taken by [Zionist] Israel is orchestrated by God…”
  • Rev. Dr. Pat Robertson: “[I]f he thinks we’re trying to assassinate him [president of Venezuela], I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it.”
  • Rev. Malcolm Hedding (Pentecostal): “There is no such thing as a Palestinian.”
  • Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin: “I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded…”
  • Rev. Dr. Charles McVety: “Shame on the Presbyterian church…Israel has given Christians everything they have…” (You’ll have to watch a few boring minutes before you get to the reverend’s pompous accusations.)
  • Dave Hunt: “[A] land called Palestine is a hoax!” (Footnote #91)
  • Rev. Dr. John Hagee: “[Zionist] Israel is America’s closest and most trusted ally.”
  • Hal Lindsey: “[O]ur friendship with the Israelis is one of the reasons we’ve survived as a nation.” (Footnote # 218)

From these statements, it appears that Christian Zionists worship first the racist state of Israel and God gets second place. Looks like they also believe that Jesus was some kind of real estate broker.

These statements also clarify why these extremist fundamentalists support war including the Israeli military blockade of Gaza, the brutal bombardment of Gaza in 2008-2009, and the recent lethal IDF attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla.
