Duping the Christian Zionist

By Professor Kevin MacDonald.

The Forward reports that American Jews still have a very negative view of Christian Zionists (“Jews Cast Wary Eye on Evangelicals“). About 4 in 5 American Jews have unfavorable opinions of the Evangelicals—about the same percentage who voted for Obama in the last election. Indeed, American Jews are far more favorable to Muslims (41.4%) than to Evangelicals.

So why do approximately 80% of American Jews liberal distrust Evangelicals?

Rabbi David Saperstein, head of the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center, said that it is not the Christian right’s beliefs on social issues that pose a problem to the Jewish community — it is their attempt to bring those beliefs to the public sphere.

“The Christian right has a clear agenda for America that it is trying to advance in all levels of American politics, and this has to do with fundamental questions of our existence, such as church and state separation,” Saperstein said. In contrast, Catholics, Mormons and Muslims, as well as Orthodox Jews, have not taken their conservative beliefs beyond their own communities.

Of course, it’s more than fundamental existential questions. How exactly to the issues said to divide liberal Jews and Evangelicals (abortion, women’s rights, gay and lesbian rights) pose existential questions for Jews? Saperstein concludes that it’s okay for liberal Jews to advocate the the liberal social agenda in the public square. But Conservatives should be restricted to discussing these issues among themselves. I guess the idea is that the ethnic motivations of liberal Jews are just fine, but the religious motives of Christian Evangelicals are illegitimate.

From the far left to the neoconservative right, liberalism on social and cultural issues defines the Jewish community in America. And since liberal Jews are well entrenched in all of the elite positions in the media, the academic world, the political process, and personal wealth, their negative attitude about Christians evangelicals is a very important aspect of the theme of Jews as an elite hostile to the traditional people and culture of America.

One would think that at some point Christian Evangelicals would wake up and realize that the vast majority of the Jewish community is not their friend and has very different interests in the public square. One can sense the anxiety among the Jews who lead the organizations dedicated to promoting Christian support for Israel. David Brog, executive director of Christians United for Israel, America’s largest evangelical pro-Israel organization says that “We in the Jewish community need to stop viewing the present through the lens of the traumatic past.” I suspect that Brog is simply less candid than his liberal co-ethnics. His dedication to the cause of Israel trumps his fear and loathing of the Christian majority.

One reason to think that is that Brog’s favorite country, Israel, is doing all it can to prevent public discussion of the fate of Palestinian Christians living in apartheid Israel. Brog knows full well what is happening to the Christian community in Israel, but would never mention that to his Christian constituents.

Recently 60 Minutes did a program (available on Mediaite) presenting a fairly balanced account of the displacement of Palestinian Christians. For example, Palestinian Christians describe the traditionally Christian city of Bethlehem as an “open-air prison,” and they completely reject US Ambassador Michael Oren’s claim that Muslim Palestinians are responsible for the decline of Christianity. It’s one of those little tidbits that get through the fog once in a while, this one courtesy of Bob Simon, a Jewish reporter for 60 Minutes.

It’s not surprising, then, that Oren, did all he could to derail the piece, but ultimately failed. Nevertheless, he was able to spew his fabrications in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, and he may have had some influence on the 60 Minutes piece: A source in the Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office claims that “the wording was much softer than in the original version.” Nevertheless, I think most people viewing the segment would think that Oren came across as dishonest when his statements clearly contradicted the statements of the Palestinian clergy.

Paul Woodward has a nice blog on the incident, noting that Oren highlighted an example of presumably Arab vandalism against a Christian Church in 1994 to support his case that Muslims are pushing out the Christians, while ignoring the routine spitting on Christian clergy by yeshiva students and a recent example where a Christian church was defaced with Hebrew writing, as seen here:

Caption from Woodward’s blog: ‘Jesus is the son of a whore,’ ‘we will crucify you,’ ‘Jesus is dead’ and ‘death to Christianity’ were among messages left behind by vandals who attacked the Baptist Narkis Street Congregation in West Jerusalem on February 20.


One certainly can’t claim that the hostility toward Christianity exhibited by Jews in Israel has anything to do with issues like abortion, women’s rights, homosexuality, and the separation of church and state. It’s far more atavistic than that. Hatred of Christianity is the mother’s milk of Judaism—the fear and loathing that Jewish writers like Elliott Abrams have discussed: The American Jewish community “clings to what is at bottom a dark vision of America, as a land permeated with anti-Semitism and always on the verge of anti-Semitic outbursts.” It’s the knee-jerk reaction of Rabbi Joshua Hammerman who was terrified that Tim Tebow’s success as a quarterback would lead to pogroms against Jews (see here).

But that’s what it’s about these days for Michael Oren and the rest of the organized Jewish community: all lies all the time. Unfortunately, our Evangelical brethren are falling for them—hook, line, and sinker.

New York Times ad accuses BDS movement, college professors of inciting murder of Jewish children

by Ali Abunimah

In a sign of growing desperation among anti-Palestinian groups, a New York Times ad published today likens the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement to the Holocaust.

“The Holocaust began with boycotts of Jewish stores and ended with death camps,” begins the ad, placed by notorious anti-African American and Islamophobic agitator David Horowitz.

Citing the murder of three Jewish children and a rabbi in Toulouse, France earlier this year, the ad says, “it is time for supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) to ask themselves what they did to contribute to the atmosphere of hate that spawned these and other murders of Jews.”

Unsatisfied with blaming supporters of Palestinian rights in general of aiding and abetting murder, the ad names specific professors whom it holds responsible, and calls on them to be “publicly shamed and condemned for the crimes their hatred incites.”

The overwrought language in the advertisement is typical of Horowitz who has made a career out of such libelous accusations. It seems that no abuse or cheapening of the memory of Holocaust victims is too outrageous for anti-Palestinian crusaders such as Horowitz.


The New York Times does have “Advertising Acceptability Guidelines” which state:

The Times may decline to accept advertising that is misleading, inaccurate or fraudulent; that makes unfair competitive claims; or that fails to comply with its standards of decency and dignity.


In addition, an advertisement must sometimes be declined because of the applicability of laws dealing with such matters as libel, copyright and trademark, the right to privacy, the sale of securities, the sale of real estate and political advertising.

Some things do go too far for The Times. Last month the paper reportedly rejected an ad from Pamela Geller’s anti-Muslim hate group.

Apparently however, accusing specific individuals – effectively of responsibility for the murder of Jewish children in France – for supporting equal rights for Palestinians, does not cross any lines of deceny, dignity or accuracy for this newspaper of record.

Most, but not all, the names on the ad are of professors who have endorsed the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.

Horowitz: Black people should be grateful for slavery

As I wrote in last December, Horowitz has a record of the most vile racism and Islamophobia:

For those who have forgotten who Horowitz, the editor in chief and owner of FrontPage Magazine is, he has engaged in continuous campaigns against Muslims and African Americans. Ten years ago Horowitz notoriously ran ads in college newspapers across the country saying that black people should be grateful that their ancestors were slaves in America and in fact owed America a debt for slavery. The ads caused an outcry on campuses all over the United States.

More recently, Horowitz has defended Robert Spencer, another notorious bigot and inspiration for Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik, as “a man of great courage and decency.

If you liked the USS LIBERTY, the Lavon Affair, and the 5 dancing IsraHell’is on 9/11, you’re simply going to LOVE the MeK


2012 Mark Glenn


Given the current climate in America, where all political creatures—both small and great—bear that infamous ‘mark’ indicating their 100% bona fides as hired guns for the Jewish state, it can only mean one thing when suddenly lots of them are found chorus-lining a cause whose sole beneficiary happens to be that same aforementioned ethno-theocratic enclave that has never considered America’s best interests to be anything of a priority…

…bad weather’s a comin’…

Remember, (as if we could forget) this is the same gang that schmoozed the American people into sending their sons and daughters off to fight and die in a needless (and illegal) war against Iraq that’s killed millions, destroyed the American economy and—following a close 2nd after Israel–made the United States the most-hated country on the planet…The same gang that justifies the $30 million a day the Jewish state receives in US taxpayer money (separation of church and state anyone???) on the basis that it’s ‘an investment in American security’…

And, of course, the same gang that told (tells) us with a straight face that the 9/11 attacks had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with America’s blind and unyielding support for that ethno-theocratic enclave who gets her kicks by perpetrating serial violence against those unfortunate enough to be living in close proximity to her, but rather because ‘DEM MOOZLEMS’ hate us for ‘our freedoms’…

With such a history then, no one should be particularly surprised when self-proven criminals position themselves for even more morally-obnoxious behavior.

After all, at the end of the day, that’s the way it is with ‘bad eggs’…Their behavior is a cancer of sorts that can neither stay put nor be self-contained, and must instead be constantly oozing into new cracks and crevices where it’s never gone before and where propriety forbids it.

And likewise with this ‘new and improved’ evil and the bad weather it portends, namely the current move by some politically-well-connected schmuckity-mucks to get an infamously-known terrorist organization reclassified in such a way that it’s then free to do what it does best, which is—surprise, surprise–perpetuating terrorism.

The group in question is the Mujahedin e Khalq, (MeK) designated by the government of Uncle Sam to be a terrorist organization since the early 1990s. An Iranian exile group, it received ‘honorable mention’ as a FTO (Foreign Terrorist Organization) by the USGOV not only because as a group it murdered in cold blood as many as 17,000 fellow Iranians, but several Americans as well.

In its repertoire of political violence, the MeK is credited with blowing up schools, mosques, churches, libraries, government buildings and various market places, in addition to the various ‘personalized’ assassinations it has performed, including (as assumed by those ‘in the know’) the 5 Iranian nuclear scientists murdered in recent years.

As such, the MeK being duly listed as an FTO by the USGOV means that receiving money from or advocating on behalf of this group is a federal offense, punishable by fine and/or imprisonment, just as it would be (and has been) for individuals convicted of providing ‘material support’ for other FTOs such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, etc.

And now, in underscoring just what a truly bizarro world we find ourselves living in, we have a whole gaggle of individuals—high profile ones at that–engaging in what can only be termed very open, blatant and in-your-face violation of this criminal statute, getting paid very handsomely in the process and without (as of this moment) so much as a polite tap on the shoulder from the long arm of US law enforcement…

And when we say ‘high profile’ we mean as high as an elephant’s ear, a short list of which includes—

–Former New York City Mayor and federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani…

–Former US Attorney General Michael Mukasey…

–Former Joint Chiefs Chairman Hugh Shelton…

–Former NATO Commander General Wesley Clark…

–Former FBI Director and federal prosecutor Louis Freeh…

–Former Philadelphia Mayor and Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell…

–Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean…

–Former Pennsylvania Governor and Director of Homeland Security Tom Ridge…

…again, to name but a few…

This in and of itself is highly problematic, for the simple reason that these well-educated individuals—some of them lawyers to boot—know full well about the laws forbidding them from doing exactly what they’re doing and yet, very cooly and confidently, they are doing it nonetheless. In at least one case we have the former Attorney General for the United States, Michael Mukasey, at one time singularly responsible for prosecuting those who violate US law, daring the U.S. Justice Department to come after him and his partners in crime, adding insult to injury by repeating George Bush’s infamous line ‘Bring it on’.

The obvious fin sticking out of the waterline in all this making the situation so menacing is indeed the very high profile these individuals enjoy. It is a general rule of thumb that politicians are self-serving cowards with absolutely no moral rudder and who won’t risk having their bacon fall into the fire unless the chance of material loss for such is 0% and the likelihood of profit hovering somewhere near 100.

Therefore, a gaggle of them throwing their chips in simultaneously on what would normally be considered very risky business can only mean one thing—the fix is in and they know it.

In short, they are ready, willing and able to engage in A VERY PUBLIC display of criminal activity, literally before the eyes of the world, because they have been reassured beforehand that the wheels of justice have had the air let out them and that nothing untoward will come their way by doing so.

As bad as this is however, having former Mayors, Governors, Attorneys General, Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs and Secretaries of Homeland Security, with malice aforethought brazenly violating U.S. law with regards to material support for terrorism, it gets much worse, as the list of supporters gets longer (and more ominous) by the day.

Besides the aforementioned chorus line of former something-or-others who aren’t at risk of losing any political office to either impeachment or a lost election, we now have an even more dangerous spice being added to the already-poisonous stew, namely rabidly pro-Zionist voices from within what we might call ‘the inner circle’ of organized Jewish interests giving their 2 shekel’s worth as far as ‘un-delegitimizing’ the MeK.

In particular we have Alan Dershowitz, infamous for many things obnoxious to civilized society but in particular loud-mouthing for the release of convicted Israeli spy Jonathon Pollard, singularly responsible for as many as 1,000 deaths and for setting America’s national defense back in a manner not outdone even by the Rosenbergs. Next in line is Elie Wiesel, high priest and carnival barker of Holocau$tism and all its precepts as well as lead prosecutor for anyone daring to question the Jewish narrative viz a viz WWII. And, last but certainly not least, there is Irwin Cotler, former Canadian Minister of Justice, former Attorney General of Canada, one-time chief counsel to the Canadian Jewish Congress and once-upon-a-time personal legal advisor to Natan Sharansky, Jewish supremacist extraordinaire who never encountered a slaughter of Arabs he didn’t like.

Now, the criteria making this latter aspect in pushing to have the MeK legitimized so dangerous is that all the three aforementioned very powerful Jewish political voices also sit on the Board of Advisors to an infamously-known adjunct of Israeli intelligence known as the Middle East Media Research Institute, MEMRI.

MEMRI is the brainchild of—

(1) Yigal Carmon, a former colonel in Israeli military intelligence, and

(2) Meyrav Wurmser, the Israeli-born wife of David Wurmser.

Those who recognize the name David Wurmser in relation to all the chaos taking place in the Middle East certainly should, for in addition to being V.P. Dick Cheney’s chief Middle East advisor he is also one of the chief capos responsible for drawing up the ‘Clean Break’ document written for Netanyahu laying out in frightening detail all the war, regime change and unrest seen in the Middle East since 9/11.

As an interesting and highly-relevant side-note, Wurmser was also the subject of an FBI investigation related to his espionage activities for—surprise, surprise–Israel.

MEMRI’s chief purpose is to fan the flames of conflict between the West and Israel’s enemies by providing ‘translations’ of various articles and broadcasts within the Arabic and Farsi speaking world. We use the word ‘translations’ in quotation marks here because it is well-known in both intelligence and media circles across God’s green earth that MEMRI is often (always) found playing fast and loose with the facts in jinning up a picture that bears little resemblance to fact-based reality.

Those who may not recognize the acronym ‘MEMRI’ nevertheless know its work intimately, for it is this outfit directly responsible for the deliberately-mistranslated ‘wipe Israel off the map’ statement attributed to Iranian Prez Ahmadinejad that has now doubtless been verbally regurgitated millions of times the world over.

So, the fact that we now have added to the chorus line 3 individuals–for all intents and purposes acting as representatives of an adjunct to Israel’s Mossad–agitating for legitimizing a USGOV-designated terrorist organization puts the entire picture in a completely different light.

In short, this is NOT an drill people.

We can now see plainly that the push to have this group freed of all legal impediments to it being able to travel freely and raise money is a top priority as far as Israel is concerned. Whereas the warm-up act featured American politicos schmoozing the audience so as to give it an ‘American’ character rather than an Israeli one, now we have the ‘main event’—meaning the Jewish state herself–stepping forward and giving the entire endeavor its Kosher stamp of approval as well.

As far as dorsal fins go, this entire drama in pushing to have the MeK legitimized indeed says a lot about what is going on beneath the surface.

In the first case, there is the brazen contempt for the rule of law by individuals who have made pandering to the patriotism of the American people something of a vaudeville act. For individuals of the aforedescribed caliber to be coming forward—IN FRONT OF CAMERAS, MICROPHONES AND MULTIPLE WITNESSES—where everything they do and say can be used against them in a court of law, and yet without the slightest hint of concern for any prosecutorial blowback in them throwing their lot in with an officially-designated terrorist organization shows how impotent the system is whenever Israeli interests are involved.

Not that we should be that surprised, when, after all, it was this same system that absolved Israel of her deliberate attack on the USS LIBERTY that resulted in 34 American servicemen killed and the same system that sent back the only arrestees on the morning of 9/11—the 5 dancing Israelis, who later admitted on Israeli television that they were Mossad and that they had been sent to America to ‘document the event’.

Indeed, Ariel Sharon was not shystering anyone when he quipped years ago that ‘We control America, and the Americans know it.’

But the one thing, the one question that should keep all persons ‘round the world awake at night, fearing for the events of the following day, is that 3-letter word that will eventually speak volumes as to the exact nature of the true paradigm at work in all this—


WHY, is Israel so interested in having the MeK removed as a terrorist organization, so much so that she is willing to throw some of her ‘best’ people out there? What’s the upside for her?

Well, again, let us consider what the MeK does and why it is listed as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the USGOV—


As demonstrated by the events and aftermath of 9/11 and as Israel understands all too well, terrorism works. A frightened people, traumatized by an event or a series of them, are as easy to corral as sheep. All anyone need do is consider the disasters wrought against the peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan as proof of this fact.

So, at a time when the intellectually-paralyzing effects of 9/11 are beginning to wear off, when Americans are looking forward to closing the book on a decade of war and getting back to the business of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, it may very well be that what Israel needs in order to keep that book open and start a new chapter in her ‘Clean Break’ series is a 9/11, Pt II.

The trouble is, as a result of her KNOWN direct involvement in 9/11 and a growing awareness on the part of not only concerned citizens worldwide, but more importantly, intelligence and law enforcement services in various countries considered targets for Israel’s notorius penchant for blowing things up and then blaming it on someone else, she and her agents cannot move as freely as they once did. They are watched, they are followed, hell, sometimes they are not even permitted entry into certain countries.

But individuals—highly trained individuals (as Seymour Hersh recently reported in an issue of the New Yorker) from the recently legitimized MeK can travel. In fact, they are in a special class all their own, given their status as ‘persecuted’ political refugees, since the Iranian government would hang them as soon as they entered that country.

The MeK can travel, and in the process, the membersof this terrorist organization can put all that training they received from Israel and the U.S. to good use, such as in–

–Blowing up schools, mosques, churches, libraries, government buildings and various market places, just as she did in her own country and against her own countrymen. If the perpetrators are caught, they have Iranian names and–given the mind-control conditioning already established as a particular aspect of MeK membership—would confess to having carried out these acts of terrorism on American soil (or wherever) at the behest of the Iranian government.

After all, that is what the MeK does. They are a 3,500-member army of Manchurian Candidates, trained in assassinations, explosives and the use of terror against civilian populations. The fact that innocent women and children may be involved means nothing. Only 1 0r 2 events where schools have been shot to pieces or blown up with dozens of dead children and the next thing you know the American people are SCREAMING for more war, and of course, against the country showcasing as the next chapter of Benjamin Netanyahu’s ‘Clean Break’ series—Iran.

Last year, Elizabeth Rubin, a New York Times Magazine contributor reported from Camp Ashraf, Iraq, where the MeK is currently marooned, writing an Op-Ed where she criticized the MEK’s American advocates and characterized the group as “a totalitarian cult that will come back to haunt us.”

And indeed, that appears to have been the plan all along.
