Dallas Pastor Uses Bible To Justify Killing N Korea Boss

August 13, 2017

Robert Jeffress: Trump has ‘ moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’

This story quotes from TheDallas Daily New

Dallas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Donald Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary – including war – to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

WHTT Editor Charles E (Chuck) Carlson chimes in:  Wait a minute Pastor Jeffress, Jesus is a peacemaker, and so was Apostle Paul who wrote Romans 13. But you quote Paul as Donald Trump’s moral authority to murder a foreign leader.  You resort to using Christianity’s most trusted scripture, the New Testament, to justify cold-blooded killing, not just to “take out” the pugnacious and arrogant, KimJung Un, but probably to kill all those who are around him at the time, and perhaps start a war to kill thousands more. You know, and you admit, that The book of Romans is about tolerance and love, but you rely on the first 7 verses of Romans 13 to justify murder.  Are you sure you read and interpreted these few verses as Paul intended them?  When he wrote words to the effect that all magistrates were appointed by God to do good and punish evil doers etc, might he have had a different meaning to convey, since those he praised had power of life and death over him?  I think so, and furthermore, I think Paul told us the real meaning of these six verses in his own words.

Back to the editor of the Dallas Daily News, (Jeffress word in “quotes”)

Jeffress, who leads downtown’s First Baptist Dallas, said in a phone interview that he was prompted to make the statement after Trump said that if North Korea’s threats to the United States continue, Pyongyang will be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

The biblical passage Romans 13 gives the government authority to deal with evildoers, Jeffress said. “That gives the government to the authority to do whatever, whether it’s assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un,” he said.

He said that many pacifist Christians will cite Romans 12, which says, “Do not repay evil for evil,” but Jeffress says that that passage is referring to Christians, not to the government.

Jeffress is no stranger to controversy. He has said in the past that former president Barack Obama paved the way for the antichrist and drew wide attention for calling Mormonism a cult during the 2012 Republican primary. Jeffress knows his comments on North Korea could be considered controversial, even among fellow evangelicals.


Zionism, Not Islam, Is America’s Biggest Threat

July 28, 2017

Source: Dr. Chuck Baldwin, former Presidential candidate

While evangelical Christians and pastors and conservative pundits on FOX News, radio talk shows, and Internet news sites constantly rail against the perceived threat that Islam poses to the United States (Saudi Arabia IS a real threat–most of the Islamic terror groups hail from Saudi Arabia–but of course, the U.S. considers the House of Saud an ally and has made over $11 billion in military aid available to them; and rarely do anti-Muslim Christians make any distinction between Islam in general and the terrorist state of Saudi Arabia in particular), almost no one dares to warn the American people about our country’s greatest threat: Zionism.

It is a fact, and anyone who is willing to do even a little personal research can easily discover the data proving it: Zionists heavily influence–if not outright control–the mainstream news media, the major motion picture industry, the popular entertainment industry, mainstream Christian religion, and the U.S. government. I’ll say it straight out: Zionism is not only a “clear and present danger” to the liberties of the American people; it is the BIGGEST danger to the liberties of the American people.

Since the creation of the Rothschild Zionist State of Israel in 1948–and its resultant pervasive influence on America–our country has almost completely lost its Christian heritage; the traditional family unit has been fractured to the point of obliteration; the entertainment and motion picture industries have become nothing short of massive purveyors of moral filth resulting in the almost universal loss of morality among our nation’s youth; the mainstream news media is nothing but a propaganda machine controlled by Zionist media moguls; and the foreign policy of the federal government of the United States is not led by American interests, but by Zionist interests.

The famed French philosopher Voltaire is quoted as saying, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” Of course, the Zionist-controlled media complains that Voltaire never said this. Even if he didn’t, the statement is absolutely correct. Who is it that no American politician, journalist, news anchor, entertainer, actor, singer, or preacher is allowed to criticize–at least not without dire consequences? You guessed it: the modern Zionist State of Israel.

One can rant on and on against Islam, Christianity, or virtually any other faith or political system with NO repercussions. But dare to say a word against the Zionist State of Israel, and one will be quickly fired, publicly scorned, financially ruined, or worse.

I remember hearing a professor in Bible college say to us students, “The devil does his best work by hiding his own existence.” Well, if that’s true (and it probably is), Zionism must be the devil’s single most effective tool, because it is practically invisible to almost everyone in America–including to most preachers.

It is no hyperbole to say that the Israeli lobby is the single greatest influence on Capitol Hill–bar none! If you doubt that, try this news story on for size:

Writing for TheIntercept.com, Glenn Greenwald and Ryan Grim report:

The criminalization of political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West. In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so commonplace that the Center for Constitutional Rights refers to it as “the Palestine Exception” to free speech.

But now, a group of 43 senators–29 Republicans and 14 Democrats–wants to implement a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, which was launched in protest of that country’s decades-old occupation of Palestine. The two primary sponsors of the bill are Democrat Ben Cardin of Maryland and Republican Rob Portman of Ohio. Perhaps the most shocking aspect is the punishment: Anyone guilty of violating the prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison.

The proposed measure, called the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S. 720), was introduced by Cardin on March 23. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports that the bill “was drafted with the assistance of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.” Indeed, AIPAC, in its 2017 lobbying agenda, identified passage of this bill as one of its top lobbying priorities for the year:

The bill’s co-sponsors include the senior Democrat in Washington, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, his New York colleague Kirsten Gillibrand, and several of the Senate’s more liberal members, such as Ron Wyden of Oregon, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, and Maria Cantwell of Washington. Illustrating the bipartisanship that AIPAC typically summons, it also includes several of the most right-wing senators such as Ted Cruz of Texas, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Marco Rubio of Florida.

A similar measure was introduced in the House on the same date by two Republicans and one Democrat. It has already amassed 234 co-sponsors: 63 Democrats and 174 Republicans. As in the Senate, AIPAC has assembled an impressive ideological diversity among supporters, predictably including many of the most right-wing House members– Jason Chaffetz, Liz Cheney, Peter King–along with the second-ranking Democrat in the House, Steny Hoyer.

See the report:

U.S. Lawmakers Seek To Criminally Outlaw Support For Boycott Campaign Against Israel

You read it right. The U.S. Congress is preparing to put American citizens in prison for up to 20 years for exercising their freedom of speech and freedom of choice.

A free people have the right to participate in any economic boycott and express support for any economic boycott. Both liberals and conservatives exercise their right to protest via economic boycotts all of the time.

Liberals continue to boycott businesses such as Hobby Lobby and Chick-Fil-A. And conservatives continue to boycott businesses such as Target and Kellogg’s. For that matter, the federal government is the world’s foremost boycotter. It routinely slaps economic sanctions on countries that it finds offensive. Economic sanctions are nothing more than government boycotts.The freedom to choose to buy a product or service or not buy a product or service is as American as baseball and apple pie.

But the U.S. Congress, pressured by the giant Israeli lobby AIPAC, wants to criminalize the freedom of speech and the freedom of choice–if that speech and choice adversely affects the State of Israel. How many congressional sponsors would such a bill attract if the targeted country was any Arab country? Or any European country? Or any Far Eastern country? Or even the United States of America itself? You know the answer to that: NONE. But violating the First Amendment rights of the American people in preference to the State of Israel has attracted 43 U.S. senators and 234 U.S. congressmen. Do you now see how powerful the Israeli lobby is in Washington, D.C.?

When we use the terms “globalists” and “neocons,” it is important that we understand that Zionism is the heart, mind, and pocketbook of each. Without the influence of Zionism on U.S. politics, there would not be any globalists or neocons. Globalism and neoconism serve ONE interest: the Zionist interest. Anyone who claims to be opposed to globalism and neoconism but denies the pernicious part that Zionism plays in globalism and neoconism is either badly ignorant of what globalism and neoconism really are or is knowingly providing cover for the Zionists–and is, therefore, controlled opposition for Zionists. I believe the latter is true in far, far too many cases. And never forget the fact that at their center Zionists are fascists and communists.

The Zionist State of Israel is a fascist apartheid state. Tel Aviv is the homosexual capital of the world. Israeli women are able to get a state-financed abortion even on full-term babies. Israel is perhaps the world’s largest purveyor of pornography–using and controlling much of the pornographic industry in the United States and Europe. In addition, Zionists control most of the trafficking of sex-slaves in both the United States and Europe. Zionist entertainers, actors, comedians, singers, etc., constantly mock America’s Christian faith. More than any other entity, Zionism has killed more Americans (not to mention the hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children throughout the Arab world) through our perpetual wars-for-Israel; destroyed the Christian faith of generations of America’s youth; destroyed the sanctity of the traditional family; infested America with every kind of moral rot and sexual perversion; and has Judaized the Christian Church in America to the point of turning the fascist Zionist State of Israel into an object of worship by a large majority of evangelical Christians.

Ladies and gentlemen, Islam doesn’t hold a candle to the sheer destruction, damage, and danger that Zionism poses to the people of the United States. Yet, all we hear from today’s Christians and conservatives is how dangerous Islam is. And very soon, the U.S. Congress could make it a law–punishable by up to 20 years in prison–for anyone who does have the courage to speak the truth about the Zionist State of Israel.

Voltaire (or whoever said it) was right: “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” Well, now you know who that someone is.

P.S. To help readers understand the roots of Zionism, I highly recommend the book “Judaism’s Strange Gods” by Christian scholar Michael Hoffman.

In “Judaism’s Strange Gods,” Hoffman documents his provocative thesis that Judaism is not the religion of the Old Testament, but the newly formalized belief system of the Pharisees, which arose in Babylon with the commitment of the formerly oral “tradition of the elders” to writing in the wake of the crucifixion of Israel’s Messiah and the destruction of the Temple.

Basing his findings on authoritative Judaic sources, Hoffman demonstrates that Judaism is a man-made religion of tradition and superstition, which represents the institutionalized nullification of Biblical law and doctrine.

Liberating the reader from the accumulated shackles of decades of misinformation, this book shows that Judaism’s god is not the God of Israel, but the strange gods of Talmud and Kabbalah and the racial self-worship they inculcate.

Christian bookstores are packed with tomes purporting to unmask the religion of Islam, but not one slim volume will be found delving into the depravities of Orthodox Judaism. “Judaism’s Strange Gods” corrects that imbalance with its fidelity to Biblical truth and the historic witness of the Church.

Chapter topics include:

*Judaism’s attack on the prophets and patriarchs
*Lying and bribery
*Contents of the Babylonian Talmud
*Warrant for the murder of Gentiles
*Anti-black racism
*Christians in the Talmud
*Judaism and abortion
*Calendar and holy days
*Child molestation and homosexuality
*Priestcraft in the synagogue

AND MUCH MORE!

If you don’t read any other book besides the Bible this year, read this book. It is MUST-READING. Plus, I sincerely believe that the understanding of the truths presented in this book is essential to freedom.

Deuteronomy is Blueprint of the New World Order

June 22, 2017

[Note by MW: It’s now summer and I’m a bit lazy, so rather than write my own essay, I’ll let Henry Makow do it for you, as he has commented on one of my favorite books.]

June 11, 2017

jozua_amorieten.jpg

Based on his reading ofDeuteronomy, Douglas Reed (1895-1976) made these disturbing observations that, while not entirely new, still caused an epiphany:
 
1. The goal of Judaism is to destroy, dispossess and enslave non-Jews.
2.  There is nothing religious, moral or spiritual about Judaism. The Jewish ‘Covenant with God’ consists of an exchange of MATERIAL POWER for meaningless observance
3.  Judaism is typical of a satanic cult in that it coerces observance and murders genuine men of God (apostates.) Communism, a proxy for the political goals of Judaism, OPERATES THE SAME WAY. The US and Europe are now the major vehicles of this agenda. (See Note below article)
 
“By the time the end of Deuteronomy is reached, the moral commandments have beennullified… for the purpose of setting up, in the guise of a religion, the grandiose political idea of a people especially sent into the world to destroy and “possess” other peoples and to rule the earth. “
Chapter 3 THE LEVITES AND THE LAW
by Douglas Reed
(Excerpts by henrymakow.com)  
[After] the Assyrian conquest of Israel, the Levites in Judah began to compile the written Law. In 621 BC, they produced Deuteronomy and read it to the people in the temple at Jerusalem.
Deuteronomy is to formal Judaism and Zionism, what the Communist Manifesto was to the destructive revolution of our century. It is the basis of the Torah (“the Law”) contained in the Pentateuch, which itself forms the raw material of the Talmud, which again gave birth to those “commentaries” … which constitute the Judaic “law”.
Therefore Deuteronomy is also the basis of the political programme, of worldly dominion over nations despoiled and enslaved, which has been largely realized in the West during this Twentieth Century.

god.jpg

…Religious intolerance is the basis of this “Second Law” …and murder in the name of religion is its distinctive tenet. This necessitates the destruction of the moral Commandments, which in fact are set up to be knocked down. Only those of them which relate to the exclusive worship of the “jealous” Jehovah are left intact. The others are buried beneath a great mound of “statutes and judgments” [i.e. the Talmud]…which in effect cancel them.
Thus the moral commandments against murder, stealing, adultery, coveting, bad neighbourliness, and the like are vitiated by a mass of “statutes” expressly enjoining the massacre of other peoples, the murder of apostates individually or in communities, the taking of concubines from among women captives, “utter destruction” that leaves “nothing alive”, the exclusion of “the stranger” from debt-remission and the like.
 
By …the end of Deuteronomy … the moral commandments have been nullified in this way, for the purpose of setting up, in the guise of a religion, the grandiose political idea of a people especially sent into the world to destroy and “possess” other peoples and to rule the earth. 

horkheimer.jpg

(left, “egalitarianism” is the pretext they use to dispossess the goyim)
The idea of destruction is essential to Deuteronomy. If it be taken away no Deuteronomy, or Mosaic Law, remains. This concept of destruction as an article of faith is unique, and where it occurs in political thought (for instance, in the Communist philosophy) may also derive originally from the teaching ofDeuteronomy, for there is no other discoverable source.
Deuteronomy is above all a complete political programme: the story of the planet, created by Jehovah for this “special people”, is to be completed by their triumph and the ruination of all others. The rewards offered to the faithful are exclusively material: slaughter, slaves, women, booty, territory, empire. The only condition laid down for these rewards is observance of “the statutes and judgments”, which primarily command the destruction of others. 
 
The only guilt defined lies is non-observance of these laws. Intolerance is specified as observance; tolerance as non-observance, and therefore as guilt. The punishments prescribed are of this world and of the flesh, not of the spirit. Moral behaviour, if ever demanded, is required only towards co-religionists and “strangers” are excluded from it. This unique form of nationalism was first presented to the Judahites in Deuteronomy as “the Law” of Jehovah and as his literal word, spoken to Moses.

Deut.png

The notion of world domination through destruction is introduced at the start (chapter 2) of these “speeches supposed to have been delivered” by the dying Moses: “The Lord spake unto me, saying. . . This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee”.
 In token of this, the fate of two nations is at once shown. The King of Sihon and the King of Bashan “came out against us, he and all his people”, whereon they were “utterly destroyed, the men, and the women, and the little ones”, only the cattle being spared and “the spoil” being taken “for a prey unto ourselves”. (The insistence on utter destruction is a recurrent and significant feature of these illustrative anecdotes). …
FAST FORWARD TO 20TH CENTURY 

Deir-Yassin-massacre.jpg

By the Twentieth Century, the peoples of the West, as a whole, had ceased to attach any present meaning to these incitements, but the peoples directly concerned thought differently.
For instance, the Arab population of Palestine fled en masse from its native land after the massacre at Deir Yasinin 1948, left, because this event meant for them (as its perpetrators intended it to mean) that if they stayed they would be “utterly destroyed”. They knew that the Zionist leaders, [had] repeatedly had stated that “the Bible is our Mandate” (Dr. Chaim Weizmann), and they knew… that the allusion was to such passages commanding the “utter destruction” of the Arab peoples. They knew that the leaders of the West had supported and would continue to support the invaders and thus they had no hope of even bare survival, save by flight.
GOD THE WAR LORD
…The incitements and allurements of Deuteronomy continue: “. . . Go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself . . . the Lord thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face; so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the Lord hath said unto thee. . . For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you . . . then will the Lord drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves . . . even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the Lord your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon . . .”
…This tenet of “the Law” requires the faithful to destroy other religions. It was impartial when enacted but gained a specific application in later centuries from the fact that the Christian faith grew up in, and the mass of Jews then moved into, the same geographical area: the West. (This made Christianity the primary object of the command to “utterly destroy the places. . .”, and the dynamiting of Russian cathedrals, the opening of “anti-God museums”, the canonization of Judas and other acts of early Bolshevist governments, which were to nine-tenths comprised of Eastern Jews, were evidently deeds of “observance” under … Deuteronomy).
APOSTATES

32495_all_001_10-christ.jpg

Lest any such heretic should call in question the Law of destruction, summarized in the preceding paragraphs, Deuteronomy next provides that “if there arise among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams . . . (he) shall be put to death”; the crucifixion of Jesus (and the deaths of numerous expostulants against literal Judaism) fall under this “statute”. The denunciation of kinsfolk who incur suspicion of heresy is required. This is the terrorist device introduced in Russia by the Bolshevists in 1917 and copied in Germany by the National Socialists in 1933.
…The Law also demands that entire communities shall be massacred on the charge of apostasy: “Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein”. …The case of a near city is different; the law of utter destruction (against which Saul transgressed) then rules.
“But of the cities of these people which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth; But thou shalt utterly destroy them. . . as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee”. (This verse 16 of chapter 20, again, explains the mass flight of the Palestinian Arabs after Deir Yasin, where nothing that breathed was saved alive…
CHOSEN PEOPLE, REWARDS AND PUNISHMENTS
Deuteronomy ends with the long-drawn-out, rolling, thunderous curse-or-blessing theme. Moses, about to die, once more exhorts “the people” to choose between blessings and cursings, and these are enumerated. The blessings are exclusively material: prosperity through the increase of kith, — crop and kine; the defeat of enemies; and world dominion.

jacr8.jpg

(left, World’s most effective mind control)
“The Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth . . . The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself . . . And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. . . thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath . . .” These blessings occupy thirteen verses; the cursings some fifty or sixty.
The deity in whose name the curses are uttered clearly was held capable of doing evil (indeed, this is explicitly stated in a later book, Ezekiel, as will be shown). Literal Judaism is ultimately based on terror and fearand the list of curses set out in chapter 28 of The Second Law shows the importance which the priesthood attached to this practice of cursing (which literal Judaists to this day hold to be effective in use).
These curses, be it remembered, are the penalties for nonobservance, not for moral transgressions!
“If thou will not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and statutes. . . all these curses shall come upon thee . . .”
The city and the dwelling, the children, crops and cattle, are to be cursed “until thou be destroyed and until thou perish utterly”. Plague, wasting, inflammation, mildew, botch, emerods, scab, itch, madness, blindness, famine, cannibalism and drought are specified. Men’s wives are to lie with other men; their children are to be lost into slavery; any that remain at home are to be eaten by their parents, the father and mother contesting for the flesh and denying any to the children still alive. (These curses were included in the Great Ban when it was pronounced on apostates down to relatively recent times, and in the fastnesses of Talmudic Jewry are probably in use today).

Note-  The promotion of homosexuality and transgenderism by private corporationsindicates that they are controlled by the Masonic Jewish central bankers. Add to this, unrestrained media bias, free speech restrictions at universities/the Internet and it appears that we live in a de facto Communist society. The West today has been subverted and occupied by shills (i.e. Freemasons, Christian Zionists) for the above political agenda. In this perspective, the frenzied fight between liberals and conservatives is just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic…especially if the stage is being set for another world war. IT IS ALSO CLEAR WHY JESUS HAD TO DIE. HIS GOD WAS UNIVERSAL, NOT A WARLORD DEDICATED TO ACHIEVING WORLD TYRANNY.

Israel Is Walling Off Bethlehem, The Birth Place of Jesus

January 4, 2017

Millions of American Christians are unaware of the plight of the city of Bethlehem and its Palestinian inhabitants in the West Bank of Palestine. The Israeli built separation wall snakes its way around Bethlehem, even cutting off Palestinians from their own land and nearby Jerusalem. This story is courageously told by Palestinian filmmaker, Leila Sansour in her Open, Bethlehem documentary that is part of a campaign to educate her fellow Christians and the world about the stranglehold by Israel that is slowly causing Palestinian Christians to leave the Holy Land because of the hardships imposed by the military occupation.

To increase the awareness of what is happening to Bethlehem, a Bethlehem Passport is being issued by the OPEN, BETHLEHEM campaign in partnership with the Governorate of Bethlehem.  So far, the passport has been granted to more than 500 people around the world, including church leaders and heads of states, such as Archbishop Rowan Williams, Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and President Jimmy Carter. The passport states: “In that the bearer of this passport is a citizen of Bethlehem; that they recognize this ancient city provides a light to the world, and to all people who uphold the values of a just and open society; that they will remain a true friend to Bethlehem through its imprisonment, and that they will strive to keep the ideals of Bethlehem alive as long as the wall stands; we ask you to respect the bearer of the passport and to let them pass freely.” Showings of Open, Bethlehem are starting in the United States after a successful introduction in the UK. Check the website for a showing near you or to organize one in your town. Also, the complete documentary can be seen on line (Click Here). For more information on Liela Sansour’s campaign to bring down the wall around Bethlehem check out the Huffington Post UK article.

John Birch Society Publication Pushes Pro-Israel Schizophrenia

January 4, 2017

Brandon Martinez January 3, 2017 Analysis, Commentary
Brandon Martinez / Non-Aligned Media

The “anti-globalist” John Birch Society (JBS) and its The New American online and print publication have been promoting a confused mishmash of nationalism, constitutionalism, anti-globalism, and kosher conservatism.

Champions of American sovereignty and an “Amexit” from internationalist bodies like the UN and NATO, the JBS writing staff are mostly good in what they advocate: a reversion back to constitutionalist principles, secure borders and a non-interventionist foreign policy. But the constitutionalist stalwarts of JBS exude an outdated Judeo-Christian bias in their publication. The JBS scribes severally miss the mark specifically when its comes to Israel and Jewish power, even if some of what they promote implicitly goes against that power structure.

The writings of Alex Newman, a frequent contributor at the New American, are particuarly pronounced in their partisanship for Jewish-Zionist interests. Newman lambasts the Obama and Bush administrations for launching wars in the Middle East on the basis that they were “unconstitutional,” but he, perhaps deliberately, avoids naming the true architects of said wars and their allegiance to Israel. The US invasion of Iraq, according to a growing number of academics and scholars, was conceived in Israel as a proxy war for that state’s hegemonic ambitions. The neocons that Newman sometimes maligns are, by and large, Zionist Jews with close ties to the Israeli government and political establishment. The most forceful advocates of and apologists for that war within the Bush administration were Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, Paul Wolfowitz, David Frum, Abram Shulsky and Eliot Cohen – all Zionist Jews with notable links to Israel. Feith in particular, the man behind the “Office of Special Plans” under Bush, the Pentagon’s propaganda clearinghouse of WMD mythology, is so shamelessly committed to Zionism that he even has a portrait of Theodore Herzl, the founder of Zionism, hanging on the wall of his study.

Why does Newman refuse to address this important issue? A Christian-based bias for Israel is the likely answer.

In 2013 he favourably interviewed Moshe Feiglin, a radical Jewish supremacist and pro-settlement Israeli lawmaker who advocates “purifying” Israel by removing its Arab population. During the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas, Feiglin infamously agitated for the ‘conquest’ of Gaza and the ‘annihilation’ of all its residents who supported Hamas’ war effort. The rest of the Gaza population that would be spared from ‘extermination’ were to be herded into concentration camps before being expelled, Feiglin mused in a psychotic rant posted to Facebook.

Newman has written numerous articles with a pro-Israel slant, like this recent one calling for the US government to defund and pull-out from the UN because of its latest resolution condemning Israeli settlements. Newman bristles at the Obama administration for abstaining on that vote, which caused Netanyahu’s criminal regime serious grief. But Newman was content when Obama’s White House vetoed previous UN resolutions against Israel and recently signed a record-setting military aid package, showering Tel Aviv with $38 billion in military upgrades and funding over the next decade.

Alex Newman and Israeli politician Moshe Feiglin.
Alex Newman and Israeli politician Moshe Feiglin.
Newman’s pro-Israel editorial line is absurd and delusional. He pushes Hasbarite propaganda that Israel is a helpless, besieged underdog constantly being assailed by the UN “globalists,” when in reality Tel Aviv with the help of the West has achieved an overwhelming monopoly on nuclear, as well as conventional and unconventional, weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. Its US-based lobby, AIPAC, has been in the driver’s seat of US foreign policy for decades. He condemns US foreign policies that were tailor made to benefit Israel, stealthily leaving out the part about Israel. He scorns neocons, but doesn’t mention they are mostly pro-Israel Jews who were former communists. He criticizes the Iraq war, but refuses to name and shame its chief architect Benjamin Netanyahu who was spreading alarmist lies about Iraqi WMDs since the early 1990s.

Newman’s constitutionalist advocacy is admirable, and his well-written essays are often informative on other topics relating to globalism. But he is hopelessly blinded by a Christian Zionist bias for Israel as the homeland of the “chosen people,” breezing over their leading role behind the very same globalist agenda that he abhors. Newman, beholden to Old Testament myths about Jewish chosenness, is protecting the Jewish ring-leaders behind both globalism and Zionism, craftily diverting blame onto expendable “globalist” straw men and puppet politicians like Obama and Bush.

Munich Frauenkirche in 3-D

December 30, 2016

munichcathedral1979

I was cleaning out some of my old photo files and came across this monochrome 3-dimensional view of the Munich Frauenkirche. The photograph was taken by G. Gru[e]ler about March 1979. The photos are separated by a distance of 35mm and when viewed together with a pocket stereoscope, the church can be seen in 3-dimension.  This majestic church built in 1468-94 was partly destroyed by Churchill’s firebombs during WW2. Amazingly, the 325-foot towers survived, despite the Devil’s Footstep!
