Understanding Rev. Joe Amaral: Insights into the Words and Deeds of a Useful Idiot for Zionist Israel

June 17, 2011


By Mystery Worshiper

Rev. Joe Amaral has written a book, Understanding Jesus: Cultural Insights into the Words and Deeds of Christ. You’ll see “smokin’ Joe” on his First Century TV program. A likable person, probably sincere. He travels the world and conducts tours for Zionist Israel. But, is he a complete religious fake like Walis Shoebat and Ergun Canar? Or is he simply an extremist Christian Zionist like Rev. Dr. Charles McVety and just a “useful idiot” (a Christian Zionist who is more Zionist than an Israeli Zionist)?

To try to find out who Rev. Joe Amaral really is, let’s look briefly at this Portuguese-born minister of Milton, Ontario, Canada. Rev. Amaral is a Christian Zionist (an “Israel-firster”) to the core and I would cautiously call him a useful idiot; I don’t think he is a fake in the strict sense of the word. However, there are some strange things about Rev. Amaral that bother me, and even make him a suspect, given the fact he is a trained (Pentecostal) clergyman and claims to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

So, below I give a few bits of information about Rev. Amaral that indicate his “useful idiot” tendencies in helping the politcal Zionist cause:

  1. Rev. Amaral has appeared on Zionist media shows and his name is proudly displayed on a list of rabid political Zionists, including Mein Weinstein of the “militant, occasionally violent Jewish Defense League“—an outfit that promotes ethnic cleansing and is considered “violent” by the FBI in the USA. Are we known by the company we keep?
  2. Sharing the same guest list is political Zionist Frank Dimant, Executive VP of B’nai Brith Canada. Dimant is an extremist Zionist who apparently convinced Rev. Charles McVety’s Canada Christian College to give him an honourary doctorate. (Frank Dimant is an Orthodox Jew who is “the follower of the rather secular Ze’ev Jabotinsky” a fierce fascist who declared that Zionism’s strength “stands or it falls by the question of armed force.” In fact, Jabotinsky was founder of Irgun, the terrorist Zionist group; see list of Irgun attacks. And B’nai Brith is a Masonic foreign lobby outfit that works against Canadian sovereignty and works to abolish Christian symbols.)
  3. Rev. Amaral advertises that he has connections with the racist State of Israel and “works closely with the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” You can be certain that Mossad is watching (and grinning).
  4. Rev. Amaral’s website also links to Zionist film-maker Steven Spielberg who denies all holocausts (except one).
  5. Rev. Amaral has produced a documentary that he says tells the truth about “how Palestinian propaganda seeks to rob the Jewish people of their rich history in the Land of Israel” and how Palestinian “Children are taught and encouraged to aspire to kill Jews and to become suicide bombers.” He doesn’t say anything about the first peaceful Jewish homeland established over 80 years ago.

Joe Amaral admits that he was a disappointed and discouraged Pentecostal pastor. Nothing new there. But what is new is his experience of hearing from God that after failing as a pastor, God told him to promote the Christian Zionist belief that whatever the political State of Israel does, it is ordained of God. Rev. Amaral therefore establishes himself as an extremist Christian Zionist, that is, “any Christian who supports the Zionist aim of the sovereign State of Israel, its army, government, education etc…for any reason.” In other words, “Bless Israel.” And this includes ethnic cleansing, war, etc.

Just a few days ago, Israeli Prime Minister B. Netanyahu  was asked by Christian Zionists: What is the best way to support Zionist Israel? His answer was simple: “Visit.” This is precisely what Joe Amaral does best. His various websites are loaded with information on how to join his tours to Israel.

It’s a pity that Rev. Joe Amaral has strayed so far from his original calling of preaching the good news of Jesus Christ. It is my hope that Rev. Joe Amaral will one day leave the cult of Christian Zionism behind him and experience a true conversion similar to this professor of theology who tells the story of his “journey out of Christian Zionism.”

When I started this blog a year ago, I thought perhaps it would get a few dozen hits. But I’m surprised and happy that already it has over five thousand hits and climbing. These are honest hits as WordPress doesn’t count my own hits. Below I’ve listed three of the top hits for the year 2010:

Will Canadian clergy regain free speech?

December 29, 2010

The real Canadian free speech hero (no, not Ezra Levant), Marc Lemire, reports that the Federal Court of Canada has finalized the groups allowed to have a say in Marc’s constitutional challenge. If Lemire wins this battle, clergy in Canada will regain free speech and be able to say from their pulpits what their Bible says, without paying huge fines and going to jail.

But how many preachers will thank Marc Lemire? Will the vocal Rev. Charles McVety thank Marc? Not likely. McVety the fake Christian hires and hobnobs with B’nai Brith men, the real enemies of religious freedom in Canada.

In favor of free speech in Canada:

· Marc Lemire
· British Columbia Civil Liberties Association
· Canadian Civil Liberties Association
· Canadian Free Speech League
· Canadian Association for Free Expression

Against free speech (no surprises here):

· Canadian Human Rights Commission
· Richard Warman
· Canadian Jewish Congress
· B’nai Brith Canada
· Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre
· African-Canadian Legal Clinic

Is Rev. Charles McVety a “spiritual Bernie Madoff”?

June 22, 2010

Everyone remembers fake “investment advisor” Bernie Madoff (Shamir calls him the financial “suicide bomber”) who ripped off billions of dollars from his friends (even more from his foes) and said he’d do it again if he had the chance. But not everyone knows about “spiritual Madoffs” inside Christian circles.

Sure, we all know about the obvious “spiritual Madoff” scammers such as Israeli-born Benny Hinn. But do we know about the fakes in our own churches who can trick Christians for years? Two obvious fraud examples: Walid Shoebat and Ergun Caner, president of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. If these messianic maniacs can fool “evangelical” Christians for years, who is to say that there aren’t other Christian fakes lurking behind pulpits?

I come now to the Rev. Dr. Charles McVety, a not so humble man (watch him). My personal take is that McVety is a Zionist shill; in fact, he almost admits it. In any case, here are a few reasons why I’m highly suspicious of him (other than the fact he is “the most high-profile champion of Christian Zionism“—the fastest growing cult in the world):

I could go on and list other things that make me suspicious of McVety such as his appearance in a news release of Likud Canada, and McVety inviting criminal Karl Rove to Canada. But that’s it for now.

Christian churches that do not worship political Zionism, some surprises

December 27, 2009

Denominations are not listed in any particular order. And, of course, not all congregations are fervently anti-Zionist. This would depend largely on the clergy and governing boards of each church. And some congregations known as “cults” (for example, Jehovah’s Witnesses) say “There [is] no Scriptural support for political Zionism.”


Roman Catholic

Reformed Church In America

Greek Orthodox



United Church of Christ

Baptist (some)

United Methodist

Disciples of Christ

Episcopal Church

Pentecostal (none) Unfortunately, most charismatic denominations such as Pentecostals belong to the Christian Zionism cult, with rare exceptions.

For further details, see Challenging Christian Zionism.

Here are a few Canadian churches that have been duped by the Christian Zionist and Israeli front organization known as Chosen People Ministries.

One major Christian Zionist cultist and Israeli front man is Charles McVety of Canada Christian College who has established a “Chair in Israel Studies” with the Jewish Masonic Order B’nai Brith whose Executive VP “Dr.” (honourary from McVety’s college) Frank Dimant is first Chair.
