The Solution to BDS and Growing Antisemitism is Counter-Intuitive

20 Menachem Av 5779

For all their secular education, Israeli leaders will never understand the source of their most pressing problems and consequently, how to successfully resolve them.  That's because they stem from spiritual roots.  

Take the BDS movement and the "new" antisemitism for example.  The Israeli government's Office of Strategic Affairs has taken on this battle, but in not understanding the true cause, they are throwing gasoline to put out a fire.  The path to resolution of these matters is counter-intuitive.  Instead of coming closer to the nations by emphasizing how much we are the same, Israel must distance itself from the nations and maintain its unique status and purpose in the world.


Israel and the nations cannot be "one."  It is a physical impossibility as Israel sits on a pinnacle above the rest of the world.  It will forever and always be a cut above.  It can only come close to the nations by debasing and lowering itself to their level.  Israel's mission is to bring the nations up to its current level while it continues to rise up to the next level above.  

The nations understand this subconsciously, and their resentment at being forced to remain at their lower level, while Israel plays at being equal, instead of being raised up as G-d intended, is directly expressed through BDS and antisemitism.

The Truth About The "Billions of Dollars" That the US "Gives" to Israel

20 Menachem Av 5779

There are a lot of misconceptions about the "money" the US "gives" to Israel.  See?  Just that right there does not correctly describe the situation, but it's what we see and hear in the news all the time - that the US gives Israel money, and our enemies in Congress want to take it away as a means of punishing us or blackmailing us.  (Omar says US should halt aid to Israel until it gives Palestinians ‘full rights’ -“We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year,....")  And while we're talking truth here, there is no doubt whatever in my mind that this is precisely why the US "gives" any nation "money" - as a means of extending their control.

First of all, the United States government does NOT give Israel money, nor does it even loan us money.  It simply co-signs any loans we make (up to a certain amount) in order to enable us to receive more favorable terms from the banks who actually make the loans.
Loan guarantees to Israel are just another way that the United States financially helps the Jewish state, but this is done without even spending one dollar. In 1992, Congress and President Bush authorized $10 billion in guarantees to Israel and, in 2003, a new set of loan guarantees - for $9 billion - were put in place to serve until 2012. This guarantee was extended to last until 2019.

Guarantees are not grants — not one penny of U.S. government funds are transferred to Israel. The U.S. simply cosigns loans for Israel that give bankers confidence to lend Israel money at more favorable terms: lower interest rates and longer repayment periods — as much as 30 years instead of only five to seven. These loan guarantees have no effect on domestic programs or guarantees. Moreover, they have no impact on U.S. taxpayers unless Israel were to default on its loans, something it has never done. In addition, much of the money Israel borrows is spent in the United States to purchase American goods.  (Source)
Re-read that last sentence carefully - "...much of the money Israel borrows is spent in the United States to purchase American goods."  In fact, this is a requirement of the loan guarantees.  And it is also a fact that Israeli companies have gone out of business over the years because the money the government previously spent at home was now forced to go overseas to America.

I personally would like nothing better than to see the US government shoot itself in its own foot by cancelling their loan guarantees to Israel so that we could spend our borrowed money elsewhere and prop up someone else's economy, if not our own - someone more appreciative of the business.

We have to ask ourselves why this is not more commonly known.  Whose interests are served by letting the general public believe that Israel is simply a beggar coming perpetually hat-in-hand to her Uncle Sam for "help."  Certainly, it's not in the best interests of the Jews.
________________

NOTE:  In 2003, Congress approved $9 billion in loan guarantees over a three year period. Congress has extended the program several times and it is now authorized through the end of FY2019. As with the earlier guarantees, Israel was required to use the funds within the pre-1967 borders and the amount of the guarantees could be reduced by an amount equal to Israel's expenditures on settlements in the territories.  (Source)

Jewish Missionaries for Christianity

19 Menachem Av 5779

In Israel, we have what I call Jewish missionaries for Christianity.  These are mostly Anglo, self-professed "religious Orthodox" Jews who are on a self-described "mission" to bring Jews and Christians together based on what they claim is a commonality shared by the two groups.  Despite the fact that assimilation is a spiritual disease that is spread by contact in the public sphere, these Jewish missionaries for Christianity have no concern at all for the spiritual well-being of their Jewish brethren.  This is being demonstrated once again in the lead-up to the most contagious season of all in Israel - Sukkot

Every year the Christian missionaries go all out to bring their message to the Jews of Israel.  You see, they claim that events connected with Yeshu's "first coming" occurred during the "Spring Feasts" and likewise, events foretold to occur at his "second coming" will take place during the "Fall Feasts."  That's why they are always expecting really "BIG things" to happen at Sukkot (Gog uMagog) time.  

Too many ignorant Jews buy into the false narrative that what occurs in Israel every Sukkot - the missionary orgs inspired and missionary orgs led "March of the Nations" - is a fulfillment of the prophecy that all nations will come up to Jerusalem to bow before G-d and submit to His sovereignty.  For, in truth, to these thousands of joyful Christian celebrants, Yeshu IS "God," G-d forbid!  And it is HE that they come to worship and praise and bow before, and their great expectation is that davka at this holiday, the Jews will join them in submission to their UNholy three-in-one.

Everything they do here during that time is geared to this end and it gets bigger and bigger, and bigger every year!!!

A controversy has already been stirred over the newest addition to this year's lineup.  

Is a Popular Musical Coming to Israel Designed to Missionize Jews?

(How "popular" can it be?  It was created for Sukkot in Jerusalem 2019 and has not yet been seen. But that's BIN for you.)






Judy Lash Balint, a popular Jerusalem author, is quoted in the article as saying: “Nowhere in the advertising is it mentioned that this is a production created by a gospel singer promoting a Jesus agenda. If that had been clear and Israelis still want to attend, fine. I was in touch with many people I know who ‘liked’ the ad for the musical and who had no clue who was behind it."

Another savvy self-respecting Jew wrote via Facebook, according to the article: “Attendance to such an event, even if the subject matter doesn’t include Jesus at all, is extremely problematic. Besides the fact that the people involved in the event are actively praying for the conversion of Jews, proceeds for the event go to support the missionary organization. Missionaries produced this and are hoping their work in Israel here will open the hearts of Jews to Jesus.”

This musical is being promoted by a gospel musician whose music is for the sole purpose of honoring and glorifying a false god and leading others to do the same.  



Advance advertising is gearing it towards families with children and there is a Facebook ad asking for donations to cover free admission for Holocaust survivors and orphans.


Rosh Chodesh Elul and the start of the 40 Days of Awe are just around the corner.  It is not too soon to begin warning everyone we know and to influence everyone we can to not take their children to see this musical.  The best outcome would if there were no audience for this musical.  Not only would it deprive the makers of this one of funds to further their missionary agenda among Jews in Israel, it would go a long way towards discouraging others following in their path.

To paraphrase Pirkei Avot: "If we are not for ourselves, who will be for us?"  Certainly not the Yeshu-worshipers, no matter how much they protest their "love" for us!



JEWS, WAKE UP!!!!

Do What Moshe Rabeinu Could Not Do

15 Menachem Av 5779
TU b'Av/Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Va'etchanan - Shabbat Nachamu



Parashat Va'etchanan - Some Halachot regarding non-Jews in Eretz Yisrael

When Hashem, your G-d, will bring you to the Land to which you come to possess it, and He will thrust away many nations from before you [...], you shall not seal a covenant with them nor shall you show them favor (“lo techanem”). (Deut. 7:2)
[Regarding this we find in] Avodah Zarah 20a: “You must not give them any consideration ” (Deut. 7:2): Do not give them a foothold [“chanayah”] on the land. Alternately: Ascribe to them no charm [“chen”. Rashi: “Do not say, 'How fine this non-Jew is!'”]. Alternately: Give them no free [“chinam”] gift. Later on the Talmud concludes, “All are valid.” An additional restriction appears in Rambam, Hilchot Avodah Zarah 10:3,4: We do not sell them houses and fields in Eretz Yisrael... neither do we lease fields to them...Why were our sages strict regarding fields? It is because [leasing them to non-Jews] has two [negative results]: It diminishes the tithes and gives non-Jews a foothold on the Land. We are allowed to sell them houses and fields outside the Land because it [any foreign land] is not our land. It is thus clear that there are two reasons for the Torah prohibition against selling houses, or even leasing fields, to any non-Jew, even if he be one of the righteous gentiles [a ger toshav].

Rambam mentioned both in discussing the prohibition against leasing fields (Hilchot Avodah Zarah 10:4): “It diminishes the tithes (1) and gives them a foothold on the land (2).”

(1) Since Eretz Yisrael is holy and we are duty-bound to sanctify its soil through tithes (besides all the other mitzvot that are dependent on the land), how can we dare sell or lease land to any non-Jew? A non-Jew is not bound by tithes, and by our action, we diminish the scope of the mitzvah, and, so to speak, the holiness that is thereby added to this soil.

(2) A non-Jew, by buying or renting land in Eretz Yisrael, takes a portion of the land and has a sort of ownership over it, and it is forbidden to give him this foothold. What, after all, is this “foothold”? Surely it is the feeling in the non-Jew's heart that he has found a place to live, a place to call his own.

Rambam wrote explicitly (Ibid.): Why do we not sell to them? It says, “Do not give them any consideration” (Deut. 7:2). Give them no foothold on the Land. As long as they have no land, their residence there is temporary. In our own time, Rabbis have struggled over this, and for various reasons, to our chagrin, some have ruled that it is permissible today to sell fields and houses to non-Jews. I have no doubt whatsoever that they are erring regarding the great foundation of the Land and People of Israel, and that there is no difference at all as far as giving non-Jews a foothold in the land and ascribing to them charm, between the seven nations, plain idolaters and ger toshav. [The difference between these groups is that a ger toshav is essentially permitted to live in Eretz Yisrael, though without owning land, without a “foothold”, whereas members of the seven nations or those equal to them today (unless they submit to very specific conditions) and all plain idolaters may not live in Eretz Yisrael at all.]

“Ascribe them no charm”: From the verse, “These are the laws that you must set before [Israel]” (Ex. 21:1), we derive that even if non-Jews judge the same way as Jews, it is forbidden to use their courts. The reason is that the very acceptance of the non-Jew or his laws, even if they are like Torah law, is a chilul Hashem. A Jew is forbidden to accept upon himself either non-Jewish law or a non-Jewish judge, as it says, “Their powers are not like our Mighty One, although our enemies sit in judgment.” Rashi comments (Ex. 21:1), “When our enemies sit in judgment, it testifies to the superiority of their deity” [or religion, or value system, as we encounter today in the form of Arab Muslim judges in Israel or in the case of Jews outside Israel using non-Jewish courts even in internal Jewish matters!] Here is decisive proof for the prohibition against appointing a non-Jewish judge over Israel, even if he judges according to Torah law.

Some have sought to approve non-Jews serving in positions of authority over Israel, and they bring proof from the Mishnah (Avot 1:10): “Shemaya and Avtalion received the oral tradition from them [Yehuda ben Tabai and Shimon ben Shetach].” In other words, Shemaya was the prince and Avtalion the head of the Sanhedrin, despite their having been converts, and how could they have held these posts when according to the Talmud and poskim it is forbidden to appoint a convert [meaning a ger tzedek, a complete convert to Judaism] to a position over Israel. HaKnesset HaGedolah answers this (Choshen Mishpat, mahadura kamma, siman 7), saying that if Israel accepted a convert over them, then it is permissible.

Based on this, in this orphan generation, reeling from fear of the nations and an inferiority complex regarding what Hellenists will say about the holy laws separating Israel and the nations, some have declared that there is no prohibition against appointing even non-Jews (and not just converts) to positions over Israel, if Israel accept them upon themselves. G-d forgive them! According to their opinion, can a non-Jew be appointed even king or prince if he is accepted? Can an elected government have a non-Jewish majority, or even a number of non-Jews that will enable them to place their imprint on the character of the state? And if one non-Jew can be appointed, why not a majority or such a large number that they will be able to decide on such issues as who is a Jew, Sabbath desecration, pig farming, mixed marriages, missionizing or the dissemination of the false, alien culture – and all in the name of the alien, abominable concept of “democracy”? Let the heavens be astonished! Shall those who condone this not understand the gravity of their error?

If our sages permitted the appointing of a convert by mutual agreement, that is because the law that a convert is unfit for positions of authority over Jews is just based on an exposition brought by our sages and is not explicit in any verse. Yet, the restriction forbidding the non-Jew from positions of authority is explicit in a verse and serves to separate him from Jews. It is part of his servitude and constitutes a declaration that he has no right to authority over G-d's holy people. A convert, by contrast, is a Jew in every way and is restricted only because authority over Israel must be held exclusively by the elite and not by those who were non-Jews and have now converted. Therefore, perhaps we could say, with some reservations, that because a convert has accepted the Torah and is a Jew in every way, and there is no reason to separate him from Israel, him being part of Israel and keeping the mitzvot, then if the community agrees, he may serve in positions of authority. Yet, none of this has any connection to the non-Jew, whose reason for being unfit for positions of authority over Israel differs entirely. The non-Jew is not a part of the Jewish People. He has no portion in the Land, and no one can seriously claim that he can be granted authority over Israel.

If G-d demanded our separation from the nations, why allow non-Jews to live in the Land? The answer is that G-d wished to eradicate idolatry as much as possible, thereby sanctifying His name among the nations so that they would accept the yoke of His kingdom. If a non-Jew sincerely wishes to be a resident alien (ger toshav), to abandon idolatry and undertake the seven Noahide laws, thereby sanctifying G-d's name among the nations, better that he should do this and live in Eretz Yisrael than to live outside the Land as an idolater and profane G-d's name. Clearly, however, all this applies only if he accepts conditions guaranteeing that he remain isolated from Israel and ensuring his understanding that Eretz Yisrael is the exclusive land of the Jewish People and that he has only the right to reside there. A non-Jew does not become a ger toshav until he stands before a Jewish court and accepts the seven Noachide laws. As Rambam wrote: “Whoever accepts them is the person called a ger toshav throughout the Talmud, assuming he accepts them before a court of three” (Hilchot Melachim 8:10). It certainly does not suffice for him to reject idolatrous beliefs or actual worship, if it is not accompanied by a court declaration. [Regarding this] Ritva ruled (Makot 9a): A ben-Noach [as opposed to a ger toshav, see above] is one who did not undertake these mitzvot in Jewish court, yet we know that he keeps them on his own... We are not commanded to sustain such a person... The stam goi [plain non-Jew] is one who does not keep the seven mitzvot [and who is notpermitted to live in Eretz Yisrael under any circumstances]. From these rulings it emerges that only a non-Jew who undertook before a Jewish court to keep the seven Noachide laws is called a ger toshav, and only he can be allowed to live among us in Eretz Yisrael.This implies that a non-Jew must accept the seven mitzvot upon himself as being part of the Torah [and not for any other reason]. That, after all, is why he appears before the Jewish court.

Never forget the following rule: With all we have said about the non-Jew who undertook [...] the seven Noachide laws being called a resident alien (ger toshav), and being allowed to live in the Land, there is no duty applying to us whose omission renders us sinners. Rather, the law is just a dispensation, to make it easier for the non-Jew to come closer to the Divine truth. In other words, we are allowed - not obligated - to let such a non-Jew live in Eretz Yisrael. If, for any reason (i.e. security precautions), we fear danger of deception, then we are certainly permitted and required to forbid every non-Jew, even the resident alien (ger toshav), to live in the Land. (after all, even converts were rejected during certain periods for certain reasons).
You shall observe the commandment, and the decrees and the ordinances that I command you today, to perform them. (Deut. 7:11)

The Ten "Lost Tribes" Are Not Lost to Hashem

14 Menachem Av 5779

Someone once asked me how I decide what to write about.  Usually, in the course of reviewing my mail and the events of the day, something will leap up and grab hold of both my heart and my mind.  Something will cause my heart to be stirred with emotion and my mind to go wild with thoughts.  Then, I have to write and I have to write pretty much immediately, or I lose that inspiration.  If I delay, I will lose the momentum and whatever it was will simply never get written.  Not by me anyway.  That has happened to me a few times.  And if I don't post for a few days, it is because nothing inspired me.

Additionally, if something is "confirmed by two witnesses", i.e. two sources appear with the same information, I take that as a very strong indicator that it is an important and timely issue that needs to be addressed.   I believe this comes from Above and I try to be Hashem's obedient servant and put myself at His disposal.  Oftentimes, in the course of the writing, a piece will end up in a totally different place from where I started out and from where I thought it was actually going.

This morning, I received an off-topic comment to my latest blog post.  And then, when I opened Youtube to see the MSNBC newscast from last night, to listen to it as I made bread for the day, a video was "suggested" by Youtube about the Ten Lost Tribes.  That off-topic comment had also been about the Ten Lost Tribes, so I put it on to listen to as I kneaded my dough.  Following are the thoughts that occurred to me.

First of all, let me hasten to affirm that the prophecies of the Tanach indeed confirm that the descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel will return at the End of Days.  They have never been "Lost" to HKB"H.  And He has the ability to keep these lines intact throughout history so that the descendants can make an actual physical return.  But, most importantly, they will not only return physically.  They will return spiritually, which as we know, in Hebrew, that "return" is called teshuvah.  The sin that got them exiled in the first place was a love of idolatry.  The returning descendants representing the Ten Lost Tribes will be especially sensitive to anything having to do with idolatry.

That aforementioned comment claimed, in part, that "a significant number of the christians are lost Israelites."  Of course, he focuses on Western Christianity, the US in particular.  Such is the teaching of a few groups among Evangelical Christians calling themselves variously, Bnei Yosef, Ephraimites, etc., because they, to their thinking, of course, make  up the largest and most prominent tribe, none claim descent from any of the other nine.

They've gone so far as to hold conferences in Israel and to have petitioned receptive Jewish leaders to their cause.  The basis of their theology is this: Western Christians have brought Jewish ritual and Hebrew terms into their worship, calling it their "return to Torah."  Thus they claim to rectified their original sin.  But, they say, "Judah" must also "repent" by, not only welcoming them back as complete brothers, just on their say-so, but by acknowledging that Yeshu was and is the Messiah in accordance with traditional Christian belief. These are unrepentant Christians missionizing by other means.

I would certainly agree that SOME Western Christians are assuredly descendants of the Lost Tribes who are in the process of their return and many, if not most, or even all of them pass from the church through so-called Messianic 'Judaism' and even by the Conservative or Reform movements before reaching conversion k'halachah under Orthodox auspices and in order to complete their return to Am Yisrael.

But, as Simcha Jacobovici proves in his documentary "Quest For The Lost Tribes," the descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes are coming out of Christianity all over the world!  However, what separates all these people - those with a valid claim - from the pretenders or the insincere is that they throw Yeshu away like he is a smelly bag of excrement and they make no demands, demonstrating a willingness to submit themselves to the authority of the rabbis and humbling themselves to undergo a kosher conversion which is the ONLY way to return in truth and sincerity.

Some Jewish proponents of the search for the Lost Tribes rhapsodize about how many multiple millions of people this could bring to Am Yisrael, but, as tragically happened in the Holocaust when only one or maybe two representatives of a family survived, in this mass "return," only representative numbers will come, not everyone.  As the Yirmiyahu HaNavi (2.14, 18) said:
Return, backsliding children, says the Lord, for I possessed you, and I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion. ...In those days, the house of Judah will go with the house of Israel, and they will come together from the north land to the land that I caused your forefathers to inherit.
Only HKB"H knows who is who for sure.  Anyone wanting to (re)join Bnei Yisrael must completely and unequivocally renounce idolatry and false messiahs and convert k'halachah.  When Eliyahu HaNavi arrives, he will reveal to which tribe each of us belongs.

Until then, this is for whomever needs to hear this message today.

"The Family" in Israel

13 Menachem Av 5779

Quote"Liars never win in the end." And, "With Christians, all is by deception and they are the most deceived of all."


If you have not already seen it, this post will make more sense to you if you view this Netflix trailer first: The Family - A Docuseries. (No objectionable content save the mention of oto haish.)  Even better to read yesterday's post, if you haven't already.

In 2015, the "first of its kind" joint "Bible Study" between Christians and Jews (with a focus on Knesset Members) was held in the Knesset Building.  Some Christians promoting it as an historical event and a sign of Yeshu's "soon return" are claiming the Jews initiated it and invited the Christians to attend.  However, two self-avowed Christian missionaries claim otherwise:
We Launched Knesset Bible Study (Daniel and Carol Ketchum)
(Read my entire report here: "Is Education the Ultimate Answer?")

In 2017, on the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the same elements telling the same tale took it another step forward by establishing the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast.  (You'll recall from yesterday's post that these "Prayer Breakfasts" are the primary contact point between The Family and people with power.
The Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast (JPB) is a prayer movement initiated and chaired by Israeli Knesset Member Robert llatov (Yisrael Beiteynu)* and co-chaired by former U.S. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Each year the JPB brings together government leaders and influential Christian leaders from all walks of society for a gathering in Israel's capital city to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
[* Mr. Ilatov could very well be a Christian himself.  After all, it has been well documented that, at minimum, 300,000 of the Russian immigrants are non-Jews.]
A featured video shows Evangelist Billy Graham's daughter making a firm point about it being the Jews who initiated this endeavor and invited the Christians to join with them. The website claims: "The Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast is a global movement called for by the Knesset to gather government leaders and key influencers to pray for the peace of Jerusalem." But elsewhere on the same website, it says:  "A global mobilization of the Church gathering the nations to align themselves in prayer with God's purposes for Israel and Jerusalem."  And foreign interests, like Saulsbury, serve as "sponsors."

However, that is not to say that there are not plenty of turn-coat Jews involved - with kippah and without...

The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus is a major part of this scene.

In January of 2004, the late MK Dr. Yuri Shtern (National Union, Chairman) established the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus with seven other members of Knesset from a number of different Knesset parties (in order to reflect the diversity of the Israeli electorate), with the goal of strengthening cooperation between Christian leaders and the State of Israel. At the inaugural meeting, the Caucus members pledged to assist Christian organizations with their local operations and to acquaint fellow MK’s with the pro-Israel work of Christians around the world.
This is why missionaries operate openly in Israel with no fear of reprisal for breaking our laws. (See more HERE.)

Interestingly, they are actively globalizing Jerusalem by establishing, not only Jerusalem Prayer Breakfasts all over the world, but also by establishing Christian Allies Caucuses all over the world, too!
Josh Reinstein has been Director of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus since its inception on January 5th 2004. Mr. Reinstein is also President of the Israel Allies Foundation, which coordinates the activity of 36 Israel Allies Caucuses in governments around the world. ...Mr. Reinstein was named one of the “50 most influential Jews in the world” by the Jerusalem Post. (More HERE.)
"Pastor" Jim Garlow, who is the head pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego, and has set up satellites of his San Diego Church in the power centers of Washington, DC, the UN in NYC (with Michele Bachmann) and yes, Jerusalem, the Holy City of God, and who attends the Knesset Bible Studies, recently detailed his attendance at a Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast in the Hague on his Facebook page. (See more about the Garlows here and here.)


The list of Current and Former Members of the CAC may surprise you.  Yehudah Glick - no surprise.  Betzalel Smotrich - really?  Aryeh Eldad - very surprising. Ayelet Shaked - why am I not surprised?  It seems to be very popular with Yisrael Beiteynu MKs
In 2006, the U.S. House of Representatives formed the first reciprocal caucus to the Knesset Caucus; the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus. Since then, additional caucuses have been formed all over the world.

The Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) was formed to become the umbrella for coordinated activities of these caucuses from around the globe. Together they work to bring a unified voice on issues regarding Israel.  (Source)
What?  Like how we must continue to guarantee freedom of worship to all?  And remain an open and inclusive society with equal rights for all non-Jews?  Is this why we are becoming less and less a JEWISH State every single day?!  And I was naive enough to think we were simply under Uncle Sam's thumb when in reality we are already under the thumb of the entire world community!  GoguMagog anyone?

KCAC Director Josh Reinstein visits the Romanian Israel Allies Caucus with Minister Gila Gamliel

An Israeli delegation traveled to Bucharest, Romania on Tuesday seeking to strengthen ties with the Romanian government and reaffirm the interfaith diplomatic relationship between the two sides. ...The main topic of discussion during the visit was the relocation of the Romanian Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
By all means, give each country its own foothold in Jerusalem. It will make it that much easier for them to take it away from us when the time comes.  "Facts on the ground" and all that.

Zambian Parliamentary Israel Allies Caucus Launches

Zambia became the 39th country in the world with a pro-Israel parliamentary caucus at an event Tuesday with ambassador Gershon Kedar,.... Israel Allies Foundation president Josh Reinstein..."Zambia is a Bible-believing Christian country, and its people and representatives are staunchly pro-Israel. I believe that this new caucus will reflect that reality through its actions in the future.”
Does anyone imagine that the average Israeli Jew, let alone the average Diaspora Jew, has any idea what these presumptuous people are doing in their name and with the heritage we hold in trust for future generations of Jews???

These people are no part of OUR JEWISH Family.  We are decidedly NOT Brothers and Sisters with them.  These Christians are every bit as much our enemies as ISIS, the Taliban, Hezbollah, Hamas et al.

Another good reason why this regime must go!

The Second American Revolution Is Taking Place

13 Menachem Av 5779

On 30 Shevat 5771, I published a blog post entitled "The Second American Revolution Is Being Prepared."   With the release last week of the Netflix docuseries about The Family as revealed by author and journalist Jeff Sharlet, I figured this would be a good time to repost it; however, today, I am entitling it "The Second American Revolution Is Taking Place."



(UPDATED)

What if Democracy is just an historical aberration? What if all the quasi democracies in the Middle East are about to go Islamic while the Vatican bails out the EU in exchange for a revival of the Holy Roman Empire. Maybe the whole world will prepare for Mashiach's worldwide reign by reverting each one to a theocratic society.

And what about America? Will it undergo a second revolution to install the theocracy that the Christian Right has been drooling for?

Don't think it's possible? Maybe it's just flying beneath your radar screen. Pay attention now.

The photo inset is taken from a video titled "Reclaiming the Seven Mountains of Culture." (My comment in red added.)

The video lays out a plan by which the Church can take over America and the world. It speaks of "enemies of the gospel" and "advancing the Kingdom of God." It lays out each mountain to be conquered by identifying its "good" and "evil" sides. For the Mountain of Religion, which it depicts with a cross, the narrator says: "The Mountain of Religion, where people worship God in spirit and in truth...", i.e. the "good" way (the Christian way); "...or settle for a religious ritual," i.e. the "evil" way (any other way, and that would, of course, include Judaism).

Read up on The Family:
"...The organization has been described as one of the most politically well-connected ministries in the United States. ...Although the organization is secretive, it holds one regular public event each year, the National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, D.C. Every sitting United States president since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, up to President [Donald J. Trump], has participated in at least one National Prayer Breakfast during his term.  [2019 Remarks]  
The Fellowship's known participants include ranking United States government officials, corporate executives, heads of religious and humanitarian aid organizations, and ambassadors and high ranking politicians from across the world.  (A who's who of Dominionists)  Many United States Senators and Congressmen who have publicly acknowledged working with the Fellowship or are documented as having done so work together to pass or influence legislation."
And its "C Street" connection.
"...Despite their political differences—[Senator Tom] Coburn and [Representative Zach] Wamp are Republicans, [Representative Bart] Stupak and [Representative Mike] Doyle are Democrats—they had pledged to hold one another to a life lived by the principles of Jesus, and they considered the Tuesday supper gatherings at C Street an inviolable ritual."
And what about the Tea Party Movement whose language is reminiscent of revolution?
Tea Party, Meet the Religious Right
...the tea-party movement is no longer merely populist, libertarian, or anti-government, if it ever was. It is theocratic. Indeed, after several months in which the religious right seemed lost and dispirited, it has found a way to ride the tea-party express into renewed relevance.
From the beginning, of course, there's been overlap between the tea parties and the Christian right. Both have their strongholds in the white South, and both arise out of a sense of furious dispossession, a conviction that the country that is rightfully theirs has been usurped by sinister cosmopolitan elites. They have the same favorite politicians -- particularly [Sarah] Palin and Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is also speaking in Nashville. Glenn Beck, the media figure most associated with the tea-party movement, has a worldview deeply shaped by apocalyptic Mormonism; he is contemptuous of the idea of church-state separation and believes the United States was founded to be a Christian nation. (As they all do!)
...enterprising theocrats would look to the tea parties for salvation. And [Rick] Scarborough, for one, is nothing if not enterprising. ...The author of books like In Defense of … Mixing Church and State and the pithier Liberalism Kills Kids, Scarborough spent the Bush years organizing conferences that brought together conservative Republicans with preachers and activists working for the imposition of biblical law. (according to the Christian interpretation, of course).

They even have a standing army waiting in the wings to enforce their version of "biblical law."



So what does all this portend for the Jews? 
"Behold I will send for many fishers, says the Lord, and they will fish them, and afterwards I will send to many hunters and they will hunt them from upon every mountain and upon every hill, and from the clefts of the rocks." (Yirmiyahu 16.6)
The American theocrats believe that the time for the "fishers" is ending and the time for the "hunters" is about to begin. Is this to be the "humiliating" end of American Jewry that Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi speaks about? Will American Jews be hunted, rounded up and shipped to Israel like so much cattle, forced to leave everything behind?
Fishers and Hunters by Rachel Tabachnick
...For decades apocalyptic Christian Zionists have demonized Jews as the source of evil in American society while wrapped in the protection of an Israeli flag. No single source demonstrates this better than the book "Let My People Go," written by Tom Hess, a major Christian Zionist figure for three decades.
...Hess claims that American Jews have failed to fulfill God's purpose because of their attachment to the fleshpots of America:
"...the Jewish people today are in slavery to many false gods in America.... My prayer is that American Jewish people become aware of the bondages to these gods and break free from them.. They must make Aliyah (return) to Israel before greater judgment or plagues come upon America. The Jewish people in America must be freed from this slavery to materialism in all of its forms in order to escape to Israel. Because of the way the Jewish people have prospered and been blessed in America, this struggle is even greater than it was to leave Europe more than seventy years ago."
This demonizing of "liberal or secular" Jews has become such an acceptable part of Christian Zionism that this rhetoric is now widely used by those Jewish leaders and writers who partner with them. This is apparently done without consideration of the danger to all Jews, left and right, secular or observant, as these slurs become more acceptable and are increasingly applied to any Jewish person that does not support the Christian Zionist agenda.
...(Hess) "There is so much blood on American soil, it is a miracle we have not already been destroyed as a nation! Many secular, reformed (sic) and conservative Jews have encouraged abortion despite the fact that the killing of their future generations will affect the future of the Jewish people. There is little difference today between child sacrifice in the Old Testament and abortions today."
Hess goes on to warn his "Jewish friends" of what will happen to them if they do not leave their attachments to the sins of the United States. He uses the now infamous fishers and hunters example, claiming that Christian Zionists are the fishers trying to encourage Jews to leave the United States and other countries around the world before the hunters come after them. There are echoes of John Hagee's "Hitler as God's hunter" sermon, also exposed in a video by Bruce Wilson.
(Hess)"...People ask: Why did God allow the Holocaust in Europe? For years, a loving God warned the Jews to leave through Jewish Zionist prophets, but ninety percent of them refused to leave before it was too late! If more than ten percent of the Jews leave America before it falls or becomes a lesser power, it would be one of the first times in history. Zechariah 12:8 said that two thirds of the Jews in the world would be killed. One third of them, six million have already been killed in the Holocaust. I am concerned that six million more could be devastated in America unless they return soon.
God says in Jeremiah 16:16 that he will send for many fishers to warn and help them return to Israel. In Europe, the fishers were the Zionist and the hunters were the Nazis. Today in America the fishers are the Jewish prophets as well as the Christian Zionists. May the Jewish people respond to the fishers today or the hunters may soon come. In America they could be the KKK, Islamic terrorists or others.
This book is written with a deep love to warn the Jewish people to escape the Daughter of Babylon (USA) because it is about to be greatly devastated.
Precious Jewish people, if you don't leave immediately, you may go back with no money, you may be killed or may not be able to go back at all."
The book was first published in 1987 with six additional editions published in several languages.
...For these apocalyptic Christian Zionists, "good Jews" are those who act in accordance to the role assigned to them in this end time drama while "bad Jews" or those that stay in their respective countries for reasons of greed, materialism, and other evils. Likewise, they view Jewish leaders who work in conjunction with Christian Zionists as doing God's will, while those Jewish leaders who resist their assigned roles in this apocalyptic drama are supposedly avoiding God's will due to their attachment to evil, usually described as being of a liberal or secular nature. Those Jewish leaders who veer from the Christian Zionist narrative become vilified as obstacles to God's will, regardless of their previous partnership.
Hess' book has been used in Russia and Eastern Europe in coordination with extensive Christian Zionist efforts to encourage Jews to make aliyah as well as proselytizing Jewish communities.
...The introduction to Let My People Go was written by the late David A. Lewis, founder of a previous organization called Christians United for Israel (John Hagee's org). From the introduction:
"Very frankly, if I were a Jewish person, I would take Tom Hess message very seriously. Having a love for Israel and the Jewish people, it would give me deep pain for some of my Jewish friends to leave these shores and make aliyah to Zion. I think, however, that the pain of staying could conceivably be worse. I do recall that the Jews of Germany were saying that it couldn't happen right up until the time of the unleashing of the Holocaust. After 911, the USA will never be the same. Also, if we should see a financial collapse in America, there will be a search for a scapegoat. The history of western civilization demonstrates that the scapegoat usually, if not always, turns out to be the Jew."
Like the sailors on the storm-tossed ship carrying Yonah HaNavi, the storm-battered gentiles of the world are going to figure it out - that everything that happens in the world is for the sake of the Jews. When they come to believe that their only hope for survival will be to toss the Jews overboard, then look out!

No doubt they are actually behind this docuseries coming out at this time.  As long as they wanted it to be secret, it was secret.  Now, they want everyone to know.  Time to implementation must be near indeed.
