‘Killing Jews is Worship’ Sign Now Legal in New York

Killing Jews is Heavenly

A Federal judge has ruled that bus and subway signs saying “Killing Jews is Worship that Draws us Closer to Allah” are legal and free speech.

The second part of the sign says “That’s his Jihad. What is Yours?”

Killing Jews is HeavenlyThe sign is a public information campaign by the American Freedom Defense Initiative in response to recent aggression by Islamic extremists and Islamic states like Iran that have the crystallized vision of a world without Christians, Jews, Israel or America.

First off, the AFDI understand the Islamic extremists better than our own public officials. They are clearly stating the goals of Islamic extremists and trying to make sure that other Americans get the picture.

Political correctness zealots have been trying to portray the effort as an anti-Muslim campaign. The judge ruled that the ad campaign is not anti-anything and can go forward.

AUSCHWITZ — 69 Years Later Deception Continues
By Gary McCullough

The whistle bellowed and the tracks creaked, as we slowed, then stopped.  Shaking from the cold, I knew my anxiety would soon pass.  Folded in my vest pocket was my future, my family’s future.  The deed to a dairy farm, complete with four cows.  We had sold most everything in order to secure our peace; to purchase this deed and the train tickets my wife, my two bundles-of-joy and I were now traveling on.

We brought with us our remaining precious belongings, including my father’s watch, safely tucked in my suitcase.  Monica and Teresa each had their suitcases, stuffed with clothing, most of which their mother had hand-sewn, and assorted treasures my four and six-year-olds had stowed away.  Each held tightly a doll from their Aunt Olga.  My family was ready to start our new life.  Here, far from the war, far from the anger and bitterness that had come with the war.  Here in our new home in Oświęcim.

…Life is so good here.  Just as they promised.  Not a free ride, but with work, comes freedom.  The winters, they are not so bad, not as they were back home.  Both Margaret and I, we do love it so…

My beautiful wife was reading aloud the letter for the hundredth time.  A letter written by Ben, the grocer from our neighborhood. He and his family had come to Oświęcim about this time last year. Six months ago he had written this letter to his parents.  When word went about town that we would be leaving, Ben’s parents made a present of the letter.  Over and over she read it to the girls, to encourage them on the long trip, to encourage me as well I suppose.

The doors strained open and the cold damp air flushed my face as I stepped on to the station platform.

“Leave your suitcases on the platform. Mark your name, age, and nationality on your baggage.  To fail to do so will delay the return of your belongings.”  The announcement was made again in another, and then another language.

I gathered my family and we walked with the others through a courtyard, then through an iron gate.  Across the gate in bold black painted iron letters “WORK BRINGS FREEDOM”.  A twenty-five piece band was playing a familiar tune, one that my mother used to hum.  The cheery flower boxes looked strange next to the double-barbed wire fence.  Still it was all quite an unexpectedly comforting welcome.  A distinguished looking man in a physician’s smock approached our growing group and picked a few men and myself, most all the young-and-healthy sort, for a chore he said. Just for a few minutes, he said, then we would be back with our families.  Well, I have made it this far by getting along with everyone. “I’ll be back in a minute honey!”

Walking away, I glanced back to see my wife and girls walking into the hospital building.  The building with a big red cross painted on it.  Some kind of disinfectant shower, someone mentioned.

* * * * *

Attention: “Everyone, the shower here is simple disinfectant, not to worry, it’s not too strong even for your youngest children. Please remove your clothing and fold them in neat stacks.  Your co-operation is greatly appreciated.”

* * * * *

The other men and I walked down some steps, through a tunnel, then waited,  and waited.  We were given uniforms and wooden clogs and told to wait in another line.  As I changed my clothes, I slipped the deed into the lining of my cap.  I would just feel more at ease knowing exactly where it was.  It represented years of scrimping and all our savings.

Finally, we are going somewhere.  Down more steps, another tunnel.  I was impressed by the sturdy construction of the walls. And in front of us now were two narrow gauge rail carts, small enough for one man to push empty.  We pushed the carts up to where the tracks came to a double wide steel door.  Locked at the moment.

An official looking gentleman unlocked and swung open the doors. Without warning my eyes flooded with tears and I dropped to my knees, a cloud of blue-gray haze escaped the through the doorway.  As my eyes adjusted and cleared, I was kicked in the back.  “Get up, to work now!”

“Doing what?” I began to twist around only to be booted once more.  The other men from the train were as perplexed as I.  We stumbled into the room.  I tripped, as my eyes were still watering, and I landed on something soft, something warm.  It was some, some person, an old man, he was limp.  I looked up, no words came to my lips.  As in a dream as you step off a cliff, you try and yell, but no words come out.  No sound ever comes out.

Another and another and another body, no blood, no wounds.  There was a young woman, younger than my wife.  Next to her, a baby boy, not a year old, still clutching a brightly painted toy car, as I looked at him, such a beautiful healthy boy, the toy escaped his tiny little grasp, his fingers slowly growing cold.  The vast room was filled with hundreds of naked bodies.  Some of them still hugging each other, others piled on one another. Each one still warm, yet not one breathing.  Who are these people!?  Who were these people!?  What happened?  I looked up, screaming at God, and recognized a round, cone shaped, shower head.

* * * * *

In 1992 I visited three death camps in Poland.  On the walls of a building in Stuthoff and several building in Auschwitz, hang the portraits of over a hundred of the millions of victims of the gas chambers.  At both death camps, you can gaze upon piles of shoes, thousands of pairs of shoes, in all sizes.  And literal bales of women’s hair, stacked like some many bales of hay.  And next to the hair-bales are bolts of fabric that had been manufactured from the hair shaved from the heads of thousands of dead, murdered young women.  And suitcases, piled to the ceiling, marked with white paint, the name, year of birth, and nationality of the owner. Many of the suitcases were of children; five, six, and seven years old.  Another room was full of eye glasses, the next, brushes and combs, the next room, stacked wall to wall, floor to ceiling, were prosthesis all every sort, legs and arms, and wheel-chairs and crutches.

This collection, this shrine to “Never-Again,” displayed what was but a fraction of the booty gathered from the killing of millions of mothers, sisters and brothers, husbands and grandparents and children over the years we now call the Holocaust.  These were the items that had not yet been packaged for shipment.   These glasses, shoes, clothing, etc. were to be shipped to people in need, taken from useless non-persons, to go to the sustenance of the higher race.  A guard, would pick through the belongings of the still warm non-person for something to send home to his family; perhaps a needed pair of pants, or a Sunday’s-best dress that his bride would wear about town with him on his next leave, a pair of glasses that would be of use to his mother, she has needed a better pair for oh so long.

Of all these exhibits screaming of man’s inhumanity toward man, one moved me to tears, a small pile of children’s toys.

As our tour group exited the building, I approached our guide. Why didn’t someone stop this?  Why did the townspeople blow the place up?  Why didn’t our allied forces obliterate the death camps?

Her response was one well thought out.  As a guide at Auschwitzfor seven years, she is asked that most every day.   She stated, “Many people for years, much wiser than I, have debated that exact question.  Survivors of this camp have said they would have gladly given their lives to see this place destroyed and the killing stopped.  One thing that most all agree on though, is in regard to the three sets of railroad tracks coming to the camp.  They should have been destroyed.  They knew where the killing was being done.  They had the ability, and even if the tracks would have been rebuilt in a matter of days, thousands of lives would have been saved, thousands of lives!

Immediately I responded, “You know, that’s what we do.”  Up to this point, she did not know that the entire group touring Auschwitz that day were part of a group in the USA called Operation Rescue.  I went on to explain to her, and to myself at the same time, that when we rescue, we take out the tracks.  We don’t destroy the clinic/death-camp, we don’t kill the butchers. But for a short period of time we keep the non-persons/the babies, from getting to the death-camp.  We buy a little time for the innocent.

Two weeks later, while hand-cuffed, from the back of a  paddy-wagon,  I found myself preaching to nine of San Antonio’s Finest. While these officers were arresting and carrying away one limp rescuer after another  I began to tell them of my recent trip to the death-camps of Auschwitz, Birkenau and Stuthoff.

Officer, did you know…

 

At the Auschwitz death-camp:

We have simply become more efficient in the disposing of our non-persons.  In part, the job is much easier today because the bodies are smaller and more easily disposed of.

Then the paddy-wagon door shut and a truck load of Christian men finding themselves on their way to jail began to pray.

Others prayed aloud, for the mother waiting to enter the soon to be opened clinic, for God to rescue the children who would be killed there that day.  Then it was my time, before God, to open my heart…

Dear Lord, I remember how angry I was, and still am over that pile of children’s toys at Auschwitz.  How these harmless steps we were taking this morning don’t seem to be a match to the violent death awaiting our holocaust victims.

How could even a brain-washed Nazi death-camp guard take a toy off the still warm body of a dead child and give it to his child?!  In that sentence, God answered my question with His question:

“How is it that you, my son, washed by me, give your children toys taken from the children killed at the abortion death-camps?”

My crushing anger was now, full-weight on me.  How can this be, Lord?  I am about to go to jail…again.  I am doing all I know to do!

“For each child that is killed; his toys will instead be enjoyed by your children.”

Like it or not I have to face the fact that each day I find something more important to do than saving an unborn child’s life, I have chosen that my job, my comforts, my wife’s clothing and yes, even my children’s toys were more important than the life of an unborn child.

There is no “feel-good” end to this story; no secret solution.  We have gone too far down the road to Auschwitz.  We have a thousand Dachaus, Treblinkas, and Auschwitz in America, advertising in the yellow-pages.

As the death-camps reared their ugly heads in World War II.  Some of America’s citizens recognized the threat and rose to the challenge.  They didn’t wait for our nation to enter the war, they went to Canada, enlisted, and went to fight Hitler and the Nazi War Machine.  However, most of the nation waited for an official declaration of war.

But when war was declared, every able-bodied, clear thinking man entered the fight.  If a young man was not serving his country, his courage and manhood was called into question.  Men and women came from the countryside to the cities to work in the factories as part of the war effort.  Factories that produced automobiles and appliances re-tooled to make items needed to win a war. Housewives conserved everything from nylons to rubber-bands to help beat the Nazis.  And still the ashes of millions of burned bodies testified that we did too little, too late.

When will the time has come for us to do our duty before God and country in regard to the holocaust of abortion?  When will it be time for every able-bodied, clear-thinking Christian to enter the fight?  If a young man is not saving the lives of innocent children, is his courage and manhood called into question?

As in Nehemiah, chapter three, everyone from merchants to shepherds set aside their usual job for a time, to rebuild the wall. Every Christian ministry, God ordained and set apart for a particular need, must re-tool to win this war.  To continue to do business as usual while there are death-camps operating down the street is an insult to our Creator.

And still the ashes of millions of burned bodies will testify that we did too little, too late.

In the story, Ben’s letter to his parents was forced and censored. It was common practice to keep a few Jews, Poles, and others alive for six months.  They would be forced to write home and lie to their friends or relatives about the conditions at Auschwitz. After the letter was written they would be taken to the gas chamber and killed like the others, then cremated.

Hanging on the wall today in Auschwitz is a fragment of an actual uncensored letter from Monika Dombke, born 1920, to her mother. That letter reads:

Electric wires, high and double

Won’t let you Mom – you won’t see your daughter

So don’t believe those censored letters of mine

cause the truth is different; but don’t cry, Mom.

And if you would like to seek out your child’s trace

Don’t ask anyone, don’t knock anywhere:

look for the ashes in the fields of Auschwitz

It will be there.  But don’t cry – enough of bitterness here.

And if you would like to discover your child’s trace

look for the ashes in the fields of Birkenau

They’ll be there – so look for the ashes

In the fields of Auschwitz, in the woods of Birkenau,

Mom, look for the ashes – I’ll be there!

AJC Applauds President Obama for Granting Deferred Action to DREAM Students

AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE LOGO

WASHINGTON, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — AJC applauds President Obama’s announcement today of new Administration policy to stop deporting undocumented youth from the U.S. who would qualify for the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.

“President Obama’s decision will enhance educational opportunities for deserving students, level the playing field for all children, and bolster America’s role as a leader in the competitive global economy,” said Richard Foltin, AJC’s Director of National and Legislative Affairs.

There are an estimated 50,000-65,000 undocumented students who graduate from American high schools each year. “Many came to the U.S. at a young age, have grown up in American schools, developed American values, and are American in every sense except their citizenship,” said Foltin.

Following President Obama’s announcement today, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will begin a process for granting “deferred action” to undocumented youth who are in the U.S. and would otherwise qualify for relief under the version of the DREAM Act passed by the House of Representatives in December 2010.

Eligible individuals – including but not limited to those who are currently in deportation proceedings – will be allowed to remain and work in the U.S. for a renewable two-year period.

“While granting deferred action to these students is an important step towards desperately needed reform of our immigration system, we will continue to advocate for legislation that establishes a permanent path to citizenship for these DREAM Act students,” said Foltin.

Citing a UCLA study that concluded that DREAM Act participants could contribute $1.4-$3.6 trillion to the U.S. economy during their working lives, Foltin continued, “These students are vital to our nation’s future. Allowing them to stay in the United States not only benefits them, but also enhances America’s rich, vibrant, and diverse culture.”

Since its founding in 1906, AJC has been a strong voice in support of fair and generous immigration policies that are consistent with humanitarian values and with the need to treat all individuals with respect, while allowing the United States to implement its immigration laws and protect our national security.

Jewish Blood is Cheap

I cried as I watched the Hamas held Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, return to his family while throngs of people waving Israeli flags and singing Am Yisroel Chai (the nation of Israel lives) danced outside. It was a great moment. I’m happy he’s home.

The prisoner exchange that set Shalit free I believe we can label a valuable “teachable moment”. What lessons were learned and what were taught?

We learned that Israelis believes that every life is precious. Israel willingly traded 1027 terrorists – hundreds of them serving multiple life sentences for cold blooded murder – in order to see Shalit returned safely home after over 5 years in captivity without one International Red Cross visit.

It’s an admirable idea – to care for each soldier as if he were everyone’s son, brother, father – and since military service is compulsory – Shalit really does represent everyone. This is why we saw that 80% of Israeli’s supported this exchange.

While we learned that Israel cares about the sanctity of life, and was willing to go to great lengths to save Gilad Shalit – we also taught the terrorists a very important lesson as well: Jewish blood is cheap.

In other words: Kill a Jew, serve a few years and go home a hero.

The modern state of Israel rose out of the ashes of the Holocaust with “Never Again” the watchwords of the Jewish State. With this exchange, “Never Again” became an empty slogan. The idea that Israel was to be a safe haven for Jews, that Jewish blood could never be spilled in vain, is gone.

Some of the most horrific crimes against the citizens of the Jewish state: the 2000 Ramallah lynching, the 2001 Sbarro pizzaria bombing, the 2001 Dolphinarium discotheque bombing, the 2002 Passover massacre bombing, bus bombings and so many more – those terrorists who perpetrated them, or who helped those who carried them out are being freed to carry out more attacks on innocent men, women and children.

Life is precious, however, an innocent life is certainly more precious than the life of a murderer. Until now, Israel has reserved the death penalty for Nazis. It’s certainly way past time to put terrorists to death as well. By allowing these murderers (and some mass murderers) to walk free it minimizes the deaths of those innocents who were killed by those same people.

What of the victim’s families? Their pain never ends. As Sherri Mandel, whose 13 year old son was murdered, explains:

Most people don’t understand the continuing devastation of grief: fathers who die of heart attacks, mothers who get sick with cancer, children who leave school, families whose only child was murdered. We see depression, suicide, symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. You wouldn’t believe how many victims’ families are still on sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medication. We see the pain that doesn’t diminish with time. We literally see people die of grief.

In allowing these unrepentant murderers to go free, we see that terrorism truly does work. Every Israeli (and Jew) has now become a target for kidnapping. Calls for another Gilad Shalit have already begun. It’s no surprise. Terrorism works. There is no down-side to kidnapping (or murdering for that matter) Jewish innocents. Kill as many Jews as you would like – you’ll be free in a few years and you can do it all over again.

There needs to be a new lesson taught. That Jewish blood is not cheap. There must not be any murderers held in prison for life sentences awaiting the next exchange. They should be given a trial and executed if guilty. There must be a serious disincentive for spilling Jewish blood. If there isn’t, G-d forbid, we are going to see future exchanges which will only result in more blood spilled.

“Never Again” must really mean Never Again.

Is the United States still a Moral Power?

We’ve all heard that the Palestinian bid for full United Nations membership has to go to the Security Council first. We also all know that the United States has threatened to veto this bid.

What is a disturbing footnote to this story is that the US is attempting to avoid using it’s veto power.

However, officials in both Israel and in Washington have affirmed that the U.S. was hard at work to prevent itself the possible embarrassment of being forced to use its veto power in order to thwart the Palestinian vote, by attempting to assemble enough council members to either vote against the proposal or abstain as to make the veto unnecessary.

Why is the United States trying to avoid using their veto? Perhaps they are trying to keep the Arab world happy with them by not throwing their wholehearted support behind Israel? But then again, wasn’t the “Arab Spring” all about replacing totalitarian dictatorships with “freedom” and “democracy”? Shouldn’t the Arab world show their appreciation to the United States for bringing those basic concepts to the world at large?

Rather, what we see is the United States’ public face turning away from the principles that have made us great. We see a fearful stance – trying to have it both ways – keeping the Arab world happy by attempting not to use their veto, and keeping the Israelis happy by stating their support for the Jewish state.

Where is the United States’ clear support for an ally of 60+ years? Words are cheap. Statements of support are easy to make. The US should be clear that they are vetoing this Palestinian bid without any attempt to find a way out of it.

Since when has the United States become a “follower” rather than a “leader” in the moral-relativity zone known as the United Nations? The US has been the moral compass of the world for years and now it seems that our needle is broken. We’re willing to relinquish that leadership role.

Is this where we’re headed? Is the US the same as every other two-bit nation that holds a seat at the United Nations? Are we no longer the power that we once were – too afraid of Arab and world “opinion” to do the right thing?

I certainly hope not.

When Middle East Policies Collide

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 will prove to be a very busy and interesting day.  On that day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address the United Nations general assembly, followed soon after by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Both men will outline the state of affairs between the two peoples who reside in a very contentious region.  Their perspectives, however, are very different, and in the end, only one of them is right.

Netanyahu will start out the day in an effort to defend Israeli policy and practice.  The reception, however, is likely to be very chilly, to say the least.  The U.N. General Assembly has been known for its blatant anti-Israel stance, so Netanyahu’s message is more of a matter of record than of sway.  He simply wants to get everything out there for the world to hear, even if it’ll all fall on deaf ears.

Abbas has different motives.  He is seeking a U.N. Resolution, preferably from the Security Council that declares, unilaterally, the existence of a State called Palestine.  He wants full U.N. membership and representation, and his goal is to force Israel’s hand by having the U.N. outline the borders.  The Palestinian Authority is intent on securing borders from prior to the 1967 war.  At least, that’s the border they want to start with.

Israel, however, has argued that those borders are indefensible and negotiations must be undertaken to choose different borders.  Israel also insists that Jerusalem not be re-divided and remain the capital of the Jewish State.  One other thing that Israel wants, however, is something that the Palestinians are unwilling to give:  a declaration that Israel as a Jewish State has a right to exist.

The P.A. won’t resume negotiations until Israel stops building settlements in the so-called occupied territories.  That, of course, is a straw man being used to further the Palestinians’ goal.  They’d prefer to have the world exert pressure on Israel through the United Nations by painting themselves as the good guys.

The P.A. is undertaking this move by saying they are just copying what the Israelis did in 1948.  An article ran in the Sydney Morning Herald on August 29th in which Sonja Karkar distorted history and portrayed it as fact.  He said:

“Israel’s own unilateral move in declaring statehood after the UN’s intention to partition historic Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state cannot be avoided. It underscores that Palestine was never a land without a people and that Israel’s existence was imposed on Palestinians, robbing them of their homes and land and destroying their proud and millenniums-old society.”

What Mr. Karkar fails to mention in his first sentence is that when Israel declared independence, they did so within the U.N. partitioned borders in good faith.  The Arab League opposed the plan.  They argued that the U.N. lacked the authority to divide the land and they viewed the division as being unfair.  On the day Israel declared her independence, the surrounding Arab States declared war with one purpose in mind:  the obliteration of Israel.  They wanted to push the Jewish infestation in Arab lands into the sea.

The Palestinians in the region at the start of the war were urged by the surrounding Arab States to leave their homes.  They were promised prime land, once Israel no longer existed.

Mr. Karkar’s reasoning again is faulty by his assumption that the “Palestinians” were actually a distinct society.  There, of course, have always been people there.  Those people come from all different sorts of backgrounds and cultures, but never once has there been a nation of Palestine that was run by the people who call themselves Palestinian.

The Arab confederation lost this war.  Several more military campaigns would be waged over the years and each time the result was the same:  Israel was victorious and the surrounding nations were clueless.

In 1949, the land that the U.N. had partitioned for the Arab State was firmly in the hands of the Jordanians and Egyptians.  It remained in their hands until 1967.

In those 18 years, no effort was made to establish a nation of Palestine according to the U.N. plan.  The only thing the Egyptians and Jordanians did was plan their next war.  In 1967, they lost the now so-called “Occupied Territories”.  Egypt also lost the entire Sinai Peninsula.

On the eastern side, Israel had taken the West Bank of the Jordan River along with East Jerusalem from Jordan and the Golan Heights from Syria.

Israel reunited Jerusalem, but under treaty with Jordan, left the temple mount under Jordanian control.

In 1979, Egypt and Israel signed a Peace agreement that formally ended 30 years of war.  As part of the deal, Israel gave Egypt back the Sinai Peninsula and wanted to give Egypt the Gaza Strip at the same time.  Egypt did not want Gaza.  They viewed the residents there as being problematic and preferred to leave the problem in Israel’s hands.  Once again, no effort was made by the Egyptians to secure that land, which they could have then turned around and ceded to the Palestinians.

Over the course of time, the Palestinian Liberation Organization evolved from a purely terrorist organization to a “respected” representative of the Palestinian interests.  Various accords have been signed and Israel has withdrawn from large portions of the land.  The exception would be the settlements that are being constructed in the West Bank.

This is where the racist aspect of the Palestinians comes clearly into view for those of us who want to look.  The Palestinians have no interest in having any Jews live in what will be their State and so they oppose, often violently, any Jewish settlements in those areas.  This sort of apartheid is condemned elsewhere, but for some reason, is not only accepted in this region, it’s promoted as the only way to have “peace”.

The truth is there won’t be peace in the region because there are two peoples in one region that both want the same land and refuse to live together and work together.

With the exception of re-dividing Jerusalem, Israel is more than willing to share the land with the Palestinians, side by side.  They just want to make sure their borders are wide enough to be defended.  The Palestinians, however, only view such an existence a stopgap to their goal:  A Palestinian State that extends from the Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea.

The United States wants to stop Abbas from making his demands, and Netanyahu wants to make sure the world knows why.  If both efforts fail to change the course the world is on, September 20th could prove to be a very busy, perhaps even bloody, day, indeed.

Transcript:
“They [Israelis] know for certain that our [Palestinian] roots are deeper than their false history. We, from the balcony of our home, look out over [Islamic] holiness and on sin and filth (Jews’ praying at Western Wall) in an area that used to have [Arab] people and homes. We are drawing our new maps. When they [Israelis] disappear from the picture, like a forgotten chapter in the pages of our city’s history, we will build it anew (residential area). The Mughrabi Quarter will be built here (on the Western Wall Plaza).”
[PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 10, 2011]

Who Does He Think He Is?

Being President does not give Barack Obama the authority to speak for us. Our “Representatives” in Congress do a poor enough job of that. Who on earth does he think he is, saying that America wishes to have Israel return it its 1967 boarders? Those boarders were crossed when the surrounding Muslim Countries decided to threaten Israel with certain annihilation.

Israel is a Democratic Republic very much like our own. They have a similar constitution, and the same three branches of government. They have one Legislative Representative Body of 120 members called the “Knesset.” The people elect the Knesset through many political parties every 4 years. The Prime Minister is now elected directly by the people. There is also a Judicial Branch with a Supreme Court much like our own. They are the only example of truly prosperous people in the Middle East.

In 1929, Arab attacks on ancient Jewish communities in and around Palestine caused them to migrate and immigrate for their lives. Between 1929 and WWII they moved throughout the world and were persecuted (Germany was but one drastic example). Only in the United States were they treated with any level of respect (certainly not without prejudice).

As is the Muslim way to stake their claim, the Arabs built a large mosque atop the most prominent Jewish place of worship. That mosque is known as “The Dome of the Rock.” Finally at the close of WWII the British, who controlled the Arab lands of grater Palestine, “solved the Israeli homeless problem” by giving them a portion of their ancient homeland to build an independent nation, “Israel.” The Dome of the Rock mosque stands in Palestine today protected by Israel as a Muslim holy sight despite the fact that it covers their own holy sight below it.

Muslim Law forbids giving up lands once conquered; therefore the existence of Israel was instantly an offense that they must rectified. This position has not changed and certainly shall not change in their eyes. In 1967, surrounding Arab nations, supplied by the USSR and fueled by Soviet misinformation, mobilized along Israel’s boarders with an expressed and undisputed intent of wiping out Israel. The Israeli Government and Military knew that allowing the Arab’s to attack first was certain death. Only after exhausting every diplomatic avenue, the Israelis pre-empted the attack with a swift and decisive 6-day victory over the many times larger Arab coalition. Thus they gained control over the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and many other large parts of the region (such as the Sinai Peninsula). Arabs to this day will point out that the Israelis attacked them without mention of their own provocation.

Israel returned much of the captured land with the exception of those areas of Palestine necessary for their security. They relocated all the Arabs living there to other Arab nations and took in about as many Jewish refugees from those Arab lands. Muslim sects, (mainly Shi’a & Sunni), as well as Arabs of different nationalities, harbor a great deal of distain for one another. Therefore displaced Palestinians were generally treated poorly in other Arab nations. However, Israel is a common enemy for which they readily conspire and literally compete to destroy. These Arab nations actually care very little for Palestinians, yet the “plight of Palestinian refugees” has become the single largest excuse for Arab hatred toward Israel. They call Israel the “Little Satan” and the US is called the “Big Satan” because we so strongly support Israel. Although generations have passed, the business of hating and destroying all Jews (Christians, and the US) has become central to a great portion of Arab culture.

Since the establishment of the Jewish homeland in 1948, the US has been the largest supporter of Israel. Despite having no oil, Israel has flourished as a shining successful Jewel of democracy in the Middle East amongst a host of oppressive oil rich Arab tyrannical regimes. The recent revolts in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Libya, and spreading throughout Arab nations are anything but a transition to democracy. It is an open blatant expressed and obvious “Caliphate” to a unified Muslim cause. Sharia Law is absolutely not democratic or sensitive to human rights. Although Muslims sects bicker bitterly and lethally, they are uniting under a common cause to slay the Jews, then to create a prophesized worldwide blood bath for anyone who is not Muslim.

Political Cartoon - A.F. Branco - SchooledHistory demonstrates that Muslim fanatics need no more than an excuse to carry out the most heinous of attacks. For the US President to say that our nation desires Israel to revert to its 1967 borders is tantamount to a promise in their eyes. Our politicians’ practice of taking quotes out of proportion and context is novice by comparison to the misinformation machines known as news in the Arab world. Although Israel could never consider such a thing, President Obama continues to recklessly promote the pre-1967 borders without consideration for our actual desires or what that mere suggestion will do to fuel Arab Muslim dissatisfaction. Arab hatred for Israel will run ramped each time Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has to disillusion and disappoint them contrary to President Obama’s words.

Who does he think he is making promises that Israel cannot possibly keep? He also proclaims US intentions to insure Israel’s safety and security. However those two statements are mutually exclusive, short of permanent US military occupation of the Golan Heights and Gaza Strip, we could not possibly insure any such security. Clearly no one, Arab, US, or Israeli, wants that.

There are only two reasons a President would advocate such an untenable deal. The first is that he is that ridiculously unaware of the historic, social, and religious powder keg dynamics of the region. It is nearly irresponsible for a man in such a powerful position to act so recklessly even if he didn’t know any better. The second is much worse, that he does know better. It is shockingly disturbing to realize that this is the more likely case, given his heritage, upbringing, education and interests.

That would mean President Obama wishes to put Israel in another impossible position similar to 1967 where they would have to fend for themselves against an even larger Arab Muslim Caliphate Coalition bound by generations of festering hatred. The thought of a sitting US President being that tainted, is unfortunately beyond most citizens’ ability to comprehend. Therefore too many Americans will dismiss it with all other things too complicated to understand and left to our “authorities.” But isn’t that the problem? Given enough authority, a President need not be careful, benevolent, or accountable.

In typical Liberal/Progressive politically correct doublespeak, President Obama will travel to Egypt in June for a “Peace Talk” that will almost certainly fan the flames of Arab Muslim expectations. Israel cannot possibly extinguish such an inflamed Caliphate without igniting a backfire of great proportions. It has become all too predictable that Liberal/Progressive terms actually mean exactly their opposite. President Obama’s “peace plans” and “peace talks” shall have exactly the opposite effect.

Who said, “By their fruits ye shall know them.”? Oh yes, Jesus the Christ, a Jew from Nazareth (in Northern Palestine) some 500+ years before Mohammed was born. Can you give something back to someone who did not exist when it was built?

God knows what will happen.

Allen West Rebukes Obama’s Shift on Israel

Allen West(WASHINGTON)—- Congressman Allen West (R: FL-22) released a scathing rebuke of President Obama’s shift of American foreign policy on the Isreali-Palenstinian conflict:

“Today’s endorsement by President Barack Obama of the creation of a Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders, signals the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.

From the moment the modern day state of Israel declared statehood in 1948, to the end of the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were forbidden access to their holiest site, the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City, controlled by Jordan’s Arab army.

The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the world’s Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism.

Resorting to the pre-1967 borders would mean a full withdrawal by the Israelis from the West Bank and the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem.  Make no mistake, there has always been a Nation of Israel and Jerusalem has been and must always be recognized as its rightful capital.

In short, the Hamas-run Palestinian state envisioned by President Obama would be devastating to Israel and the world’s 13.3 million Jews. It would be a Pavlovian style reward to a declared Islamic terrorist organization, and an unacceptable policy initiative.

America should never negotiate with the Palestinian Authority- which has aligned itself with Hamas. Palestine is a region, not a people or a modern state. Based upon Roman Emperor Hadrian’s declaration in 73 AD, the original Palestinian people are the Jewish people.

It’s time for the American people to stand by our strongest ally, the Jewish State of Israel, and reject this foreign policy blunder of epic proportions.

While the winds of democracy may blow strong in the Middle East, history has demonstrated that gaps in leadership can lead to despotic regimes.  I have questions for President Obama:  ‘Who will now lead in Egypt?’ and ‘Why should American taxpayers provide foreign aid to a nation where the next chapter in their history may be the emergence of another radical Islamic state?’

President Obama has not stood for Israel or the Jewish people and has made it clear where the United States will stand when Palestine attempts to gain recognition of statehood by the United Nations.  The President should focus on the real obstacle to security- the Palestinian leadership and its ultimate goal to eliminate Israel and the Jewish people.”

 

Palestinian: A People Or A Marketing Term?

After today’s literal fall from grace in the eyes of God Almighty due to President Obama betraying the nation and people of Israel, the social media outlets blew up like wildfire! There were so many tweets coming through that I literally could not keep up with them. I re-tweeted many, I posted many, I wrote an article… in the midst of all of this, my heart was literally breaking for this once great nation. Yes, I say once great nation, because we will fall quickly by taking a national stand against God’s chosen people!

One tweet came across that caught my eye and I retweeted it. I’ve thought long and hard on it throughout the afternoon. It is my firm belief that this tweet is absolute truth. However, I think it is very important to lay out some facts to prove it as truth.

The tweet was sent by Hope d’Amore :

“PALESTINIAN” is a marketing term. YRU calling 4 creation of a nation out of whole cloth? The ISRAELITES WERE THERE 1k yrs BC.

As I began researching this topic for actual facts I found an abundance of half-truths woven in with outright lies.

We have reached yet another milestone in our day and age with technology that was foretold in prophecy thousands of years ago.

But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Daniel 12:4

It does not take a genius to realize that we have reached the time that God speaks of to Daniel in this passage. On a minute-by-minute basis people all around the world are “going here and there” by way of planes, trains and automobiles.

We now have the sum of human knowledge at our fingertips in the Internet.

However, knowledge does not necessarily mean it is truth. Just because it is written or spoken does not mean that it is fact. I can tell you that the grass is blue but that does not make it so. There are just some things that go beyond simple “perception”. Dictionary.com defines “propaganda” as:

prop·a·gan·da
–noun
1. information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.
2. the deliberate spreading of such information, rumors, etc.
3. the particular doctrines or principles propagated by an organization or movement.

This is exactly what I have found in doing my research. I had just about decided I was going to have to go to the actual brick and mortar building of my local library to find some history books to give facts for this article. While I have numerous writings here at home I do not have exactly what I am looking for and need for this article. That will change, as more than ever before I want to make I am armed with the facts of Israel in history. Facts…. not opinions or perceptions- or propaganda.

So much of what I found is nothing but outright propaganda.

What is being spread by the liberal main (lame) stream media today is an organized idea spread world-wide to harm- or their ultimate goal- kill the people of Israel.

It’s very interesting how the physical world is so intertwined with the spiritual world- so much so that we do not even realize it! What we are witnessing is what has been going on for thousands of years. We have a ring-side seat to one of the largest spiritual battles of all time. It is a battle between good and evil.

God’s Word tells us that Satan is the “Father of lies”:

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

So it only makes sense that this spiritual war is being waged with outright lies.

I finally found this website that answers this question: “Are the Palestinians Descendants of Jews who Converted to Islam?” by Dr. Rivka Shpak Lissak.

The popaganda that is addressed at the very beginning is:

“…that the present Jews are not the descendants of the ancient Jews who lived in the land of Israel 2,000 years ago but descendants of coverts. Since they are Jews by religion, but not by ethnicity, they have no rights for a state on this land, and the Arabs who have lived year for generations are the true owners of this land.”

Dr. Lissak calls it was it is from the very beginning- propaganda. Just because people world wide are propagating this idea as fact does not make it true. You can call a monkey an elephant but that doesn’t make it so!

Rather than quoting half of the information from this website, I urge you to go to the site and read word for word what the truth- the history- the actual FACTS are! There are additional links on the bottom of the page that will give you much more information. In fact, I will be spending a great deal of time in the coming days combing through this site and reading as much information as I can find.

This quote sums up the true purpose of the propaganda and those who spread the lies about Israel:

“The Arabic- Palestinian narrative as well as Zands’ thesis are efforts to rewrite history for political considerations: To eliminate the Jewish state.

The thesis of this article is that there is no evidence that thousands of Jews converted to Islam.”

You cannot get more clear than that!

I cannot speak for every word on the site, but I have not yet found anything that causes my alarm bells to go off. And believe me, after the research I’ve delved into today and into this evening, warning bells have not stopped going off in my head!

Ultimately, The Holy Bible is THE ONLY TRUTH there is! However, history proves God’s Word is Truth. Facts, not propaganda, are what we must stand for.

There is one misconception among many for those who do not support Israel in regards to how they view those of us who do stand with Israel. It is often “understood” that by supporting and standing with Israel that we choose to look past the things that the people of Israel- the Jews- have done wrong. This is simply not true. We are all human. We all fail at one point or another… most of us at least one time a day if not more! None of us are perfect! However, to expect the people of Israel to not protect themselves from the continuous onslaught of violence is ridiculous!

The “Palestinian” propaganda has served to twist facts- changing them completely in many instances.

This site- The Bible On Jewish Links to the Holy Land – is one that I found the most informative for what I wanted for this article. Remember what I said- The Bible is THE source of Truth that we must base all of our arguments on. Abraham was promised the land of Israel by God Almighty Himself almost 4,000 years ago. Here is a quote from this site that debunks the propaganda of “Palestine”:

“Israel is known by a number of names, including Canaan, Eretz Yisrael, Zion, or simply as ha-aretz, meaning “the land,” a sign of its belovedness and significance. It is the Holy Land, par excellence. God promised Abraham that he and his descendants would inherit the land of Israel as an eternal possession.”

I went to dozens of websites researching this topic, and time after time the land was referred to as “Palestine”. Palestine is NOT one of the names that the Holy Land is called! God promised the Holy Land- Israel (ie Canaan, Eretz Yisrael, Zion, ha-aret, the land) to Abraham and his descendants as an ETERNAL possession! To use more common words to make this crystal clear for those who refuse to accept this fact:

God promised the Holy Land- Israel- to Abraham and his descendants- the Jewish people- FOREVER!

If this is still not clear enough, I invite you to visit the thesaurus.com to see the other synonyms listed for eternal.

The propaganda machines can deny it all they like, but again, just because something is said or written doesn’t make it fact. You have to have FACTS to back up your argument.

This fact alone makes the argument

“Jewish rights to the land were always part of the very fabric of Creation.”

Of course I know there are those who will say that is not true, but facts are facts. We know that this is fact rather than propaganda because

“the Hebrew verb used in the Scriptures is natati, meaning “I have given” (past tense). This passage implies that God had already given the land to the Jews at some earlier time, though this is the first record of such a promise. Rabbinic commentators suggest, however, that God had set aside the land of Israel for His people already at the time of Creation.”

Language is a funny thing. It is factual. There have been movies made in foreign languages that are no longer spoken (“The Passion of The Christ” and “Apocalypto” to name two of them). How do we know that the words that were spoken in the movie were of the specific language of the time recreated on film? Simple. Facts. You cannot argue with facts.

I could spend the rest of my life writing on this topic, but I would simply be quoting other people. I am no scholar- Biblical or otherwise. But I do know fact from propaganda.

Israel belongs to the Jewish people- descendants of Abraham.

Twist the facts or lie if you will… that does not make it true.

Israel- and I mean ALL of Israel as outlined in the Bible, and represented by this map, belongs to the Jewish people!

Another Great Source of Facts: Israel’s Legal Right To The Land

Jews have a legitimate claim to the whole of Israel. They are not the “occupying force” as misinformation suggests.

Zephaniah 2:8-11

“ I have heard the reproach of Moab,
And the insults of the people of Ammon,
With which they have reproached My people,
And made arrogant threats against their borders.
Therefore, as I live,”
Says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,
“ Surely Moab shall be like Sodom,
And the people of Ammon like Gomorrah—
Overrun with weeds and saltpits,
And a perpetual desolation.
The residue of My people shall plunder them,
And the remnant of My people shall possess them.”
This they shall have for their pride,
Because they have reproached and made arrogant threats
Against the people of the LORD of hosts.
The LORD will be awesome to them,
For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth;
People shall worship Him,
Each one from his place,
Indeed all the shores of the nations.

Is Obama Evil? A commentary on Obama, Communism, and our Fight for Freedom

obama and communismI have written previously on the theme that Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetero, might be insane. It is a worthy topic, and deserves more play in journalistic circles than it is receiving. But after yesterday’s astonishing performance by Obama during a radio interview on Univision, there is another possibility that must also be explored. The question? –  Is Obama evil? That’s right, the big “E”. It isn’t an either/or situation. There is nothing preventing Obama from being both insane and evil. But let’s concentrate on the evil meme here. Like the insanity question, Obama’s state of morality deserves equal attention.

Returning to Obama’s radio performance, here’s the most relevant quotes:

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.” – Barack Obama

And as if that isn’t enough, here is a follow-up, in which Obama gives his opinion about Republicans such as Senator John McCain who support effective border security and strong immigration law enforcement.

“Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” – Barack Obama

We are witnessing a President of the United States literally declaring war on some of its citizens! Obama has just declared that Republicans are his enemy. He is inciting violence towards conservatives. He is demanding that Latinos be his enforcers against his sworn “enemies.” Obama, in essence is openly advocating racial warfare in The United States of America. He is making racist statements, imploring the Latinos to rise up and punish his “enemies”. That’s just great – a Nobel Peace Prize winner stumping for the punishment of his “enemies”. The man, who ran as a post-partisan uniter, has become the most divisive president in the history of this country.

Furthermore, Obama draws the lines of division quite clearly for us. Those American citizens who do not support his policies “aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” And just what ARE your core American values, Mister President? Would you care to elaborate?

Let’s take a guess. Obama’s core values constitute the following:

  • Destroy America’s ability to defend itself
  • Bankrupt America
  • Enrich himself and his cronies
  • Tear down border defenses and allow unbridled trespassing upon United States soil
  • Control the actions of American citizens via the rationing and withholding of medical care
  • Impose complete governmental control over the manufacturing sector of the economy
  • Impose complete governmental control over the financial industry
  • Impose complete governmental control over the press, wiping out Fox News and any other news organization that dares to broadcast or print opinions that oppose Obama’s agenda
  • Declare war upon American patriots
  • Indoctrinate children in Marxism
  • Apologize to the world for any and all instances of American exceptionalism
  • Destroy all carbon-based energy production companies
  • Impose control over every aspect of citizens’ lives
  • Incite class warfare
  • Incite racial warfare
  • Impose redistribution of wealth on a massive scale
  • Remove God from the lives of all Americans and replace the worship of God with the worship of the state and Obama
  • Create a system of central command and control over the economy through appointed Czars, bypassing the authority of the United States Congress
  • Make the courts of the land subservient to the will of Obama. Appoint stooges as judges so that all court decisions will follow communist doctrine
  • Dictate what types of food people may eat
  • Force students to obtain their school funding through the government by eliminating the right of private financial institutions to offer student loans
  • Make illegal the selling of incandescent lightbulbs
  • Destroy the private sector of the economy – all jobs must come via government
  • Mandate the killing of unborn babies through taxpayer funded abortions
  • Make Americans slaves to communism

Furthermore, Obama then lies about each and every policy position – Then acts like a buffoon, grins, and denies that he is a socialist. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are living through the most dangerous period of American history. There is a would-be dictator attempting to forcibly impose his will upon us.

This is no longer a fight between conservatism and liberalism. This is a fight between good and evil. Obama even attempts to redefine what is good and what is evil. You’re right, Obama, we don’t share your values. No righteous person ever would. Even the Bible, (you remember the Bible, don’t you, Mister self-professed Christian?) foretold the day of Obama:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5: 20.

It is a small step from Obama’s current rhetoric to genocide. Hitler did it just like Obama is leading up to  it now. Obama is now calling for the destruction of his enemies – and he wants the Latinos to do it. Hitler called for the destruction of the Jews – and he wanted the S.S. to do it. We have arrived at a time in our nation’s history when a violent gang has infiltrated our government, our schools and universities, our think-tanks, our law enforcement agencies, our workplaces, our military, and every other aspect of our society. And Obama is leading the charge.

Pogrom

During the deportation of survivors of a pogrom in Iasi to Calarasi or Podul Iloaei, Romanians halt a train to throw off the bodies of those who had died on the way. Romania, July 1941.

The Jews have a word for what Obama is now alluding to. The word is Pogrom. Look it up. Study it. You will find it instructive. Pogroms, essentially, are the systematic cleansings of populations, with the atrocities aimed at selected groups of people. It is selective genocide. The Jews in Russia suffered pogroms. The Jews in Europe suffered another pogrom at the hands of the Nazis. The Armenians were victims of a pogrom as well. The Holocaust was one giant pogrom. And now Obama is alluding to exactly that – a pogrom.

Obama’s rhetoric has become ever more inflammatory the closer we have come to November 2, 2010. He feels his power slipping away and he is striking out like a petulant child who has been denied the biggest cookie on the plate. What was a slick, controlled, and contrived message during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has descended into gutter talk of retribution against his political “enemies.” Obama isn’t talking about the issues anymore. Obama is talking about eliminating his “enemies.”

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson, who served as Secretary of Agriculture in the Eisenhower administration, warned us of the dangers of the secret combination that had infiltrated our society. Benson was mocked and scorned for his words. He was considered a lunatic by many of his critics. But, considering the unfettered dismantling of our freedoms and the destruction of our society by the Democrats during the past two years, more and more people are seeing the Democrats in general and Obama in particular for exactly what they are – a communist gang.

Here is Benson’s warning, published in November, 1979. See the complete talk here. And here are some excerpts, below:

It is well to ask, what system established secret works of darkness to overthrow nations by violent revolution? Who blasphemously proclaimed the atheistic doctrine that God made us not? Satan works through human agents. We need only look to some of the ignoble characters in human history who were contemporary to the restoration of the gospel to discover fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. I refer to the infamous founders of Communism and others who follow in their tradition.

Communism introduced into the world a substitute for true religion. It is a counterfeit of the gospel plan. The false prophets of Communism predict a utopian society. This, they proclaim, will only be brought about as capitalism and free enterprise are overthrown, private property abolished, the family as a social unit eliminated, all classes abolished, all governments overthrown, and a communal ownership of property in a classless, stateless society established.  – Ezra Taft Benson

Having established that Communism in all its forms, and under all the code names it goes by, which we now see include progressive, liberal, Democrat, socialist, and environmentalist, etc., Benson declared that the prophets of communism were among us, promising Utopia in exchange for our freedom. Is this not what we see permeating our society now? Have the communists in America not created a welfare state? Does not Obama seek to expand  it?

Next, Benson goes on to explain the nature of the battle.

Today, we are in a battle for the bodies and souls of man. It is a battle between two opposing systems: freedom and slavery, Christ and anti-Christ. The struggle is more momentous than a decade ago, yet today the conventional wisdom says, “You must learn to live with Communism and to give up your ideas about national sovereignty.” Tell that to the millions—yes, the scores of millions—who have met death or imprisonment under the tyranny of Communism! Such would be the death knell of freedom and all we hold dear. God must ever have a free people to prosper His work and bring about Zion.

I am a witness to nations and people deprived of their freedom. I was there. I watched that great Iron Curtain drop around nations which formerly had prized their freedom—good people. I was aghast as these were written off by the stroke of a pen. I saw Poland abandoned by nations with a heritage of freedom—the United States and Great Britain.

I was in Warsaw in June of 1946. I shared a room with seven other men in the Polonia Hotel, the only hotel even partially intact in the great city of Warsaw. Our ambassador, Bliss Lane, had his office in part of the building. He was so saddened that he resigned and wrote the book I Saw Poland Betrayed, which detailed the failure of the United States and England to keep their promise that the Poles would have a free election after the war.

I saw firsthand our great nation stand by at the time of the Hungarian revolution—when “freedom fighters” with bare hands and stones resisted bullets, tanks, and artillery. I confess I was ashamed at the response of my country—a nation which I believe the Lord intended to be an ensign of freedom to all others. Freedom did not die that day (23 October 1956) for Hungary alone. Hope died for many in other captive nations and has only recently been somewhat revived by courageous men willing to speak against oppression.

Since that day, I have seen the Soviet Union, under its godless leaders, spread its ideology throughout the world. Every stratagem is used—trade, war, revolution, violence, hate, detente, and immorality—to accomplish its purposes. Many nations are now under its oppressive control. Over one billion people—one-fourth of the population of the world—have now lost their freedom and are under Communist domination. We seem to forget that the great objective of Communism is still world domination and control, which means the surrender of our freedom—your freedom—our sovereignty. – Ezra Taft Benson

Benson, a high-ranking leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, included in his article the mention of a warning the First Presidency (the highest ranking level of leadership in his church) issued all the way back in July of 1936 regarding the goals of communism.

“Communism is not a political party nor a political plan under the Constitution; it is a system of government that is the opposite of our Constitutional government. …

“Since Communism, established, would destroy our American Constitutional government, to support Communism is treasonable to our free institutions, and no patriotic American citizen may become either a Communist or supporter of Communism. …

“We call upon all Church members completely to eschew [shun] Communism. The safety of our divinely inspired Constitutional government and the welfare of our Church imperatively demand that Communism shall have no place in America” (signed: Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., David O. McKay, The First Presidency, in Deseret News, 3 July 1936; italics added).

Marion G. Romney

Marion G. Romney

Benson, and his contemporaries recognized that the greatest danger of communism to America was that we, as Americans, had accommodated the infiltration of communists into our society. Americans have keenly noticed that Obama doesn’t seem to have a religion. Yes, he calls himself a Christian – but his rhetoric is decidedly unchristian. The only religion Obama truly seems to have is the worship of Obama. He is following precisely the communist model – he has replaced the worship of God with the worship of the state. And as head of the state, that means he worships himself. Another religious leader, Marion G. Romney, pointed out this fact in September of 1979:

“Communism is Satan’s counterfeit for the gospel plan, and … it is an avowed enemy of the God of the land. Communism is the greatest anti-Christ power in the world today and therefore the greatest menace not only to our peace but to our preservation as a free people. By the extent to which we tolerate it, accommodate ourselves to it, permit ourselves to be encircled by its tentacles and drawn to it, to that extent we forfeit the protection of the God of this land” – Marion G. Romney

Both Benson and Romney argued that the way for Americans to protect themselves from communism was to return to worshipping God with full fervor. Additionally, Benson laid out some other actions that could be taken:

We must not tolerate accommodation with or appeasement toward the false system of Communism. We must demand of our elected officials that we not only resist Communism, but that we will take every measure to prevent its intrusion into this hemisphere. It is vital that we invoke the Monroe Doctrine. – Ezra Taft Benson

Also,

We must study the inspired Constitution and become involved in the political process ourselves. – Ezra Taft Benson

I do not care if the political left declares me, like Ezra Taft Benson, to be a nut. I do not shrink from calling Obama a communist, for that is what he is. I refuse to stand idly by while Obama attempts to destroy my beloved America. America is the great bastion of freedom and liberty in a perilous world. If we give up America we lose the world. Obama knows that. That is why he and his fellow communists are so intent on taking complete and utter control over us. They know that if they conquer America then will control the world.

George Washington praying

George Washington praying

Now let me share something with you that you made find surprising. Our first president, George Washington, saw in vision, this day and age. He saw the threat that would come from our domestic enemies, such as Obama. He understood, through divine revelation, the war we must fight to retain our precious liberty from those, such as Obama, who would deprive us of our liberties.

Our nation was founded by spiritually-minded leaders, including Washington. At Valley Forge, in the winter of 1777, Washington received this vision of the future of The United States of America. This vision was reprinted in December of 1880 by The National Tribune, the U.S. war veterans’ newspaper. This vision was also reprinted on December 21, 1950 by The Stars and Stripes.

The Vision

Anthony Sherman was in Valley Forge and received the report of the vision first hand from George Washington. Sherman recalled: “You doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.”

“One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone. When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual. There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.”

Washington Stated:

“This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

“By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.

“A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

The First Peril – The Revolution

“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world – Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

‘Son of the Republic,’ said the same mysterious voice as before, `look and learn.’ At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

The Second Perl – The Civil War

“A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

“Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, `Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word `Union,’ bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, `Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

The Third Peril – America’s Judgment?

“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.

“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

“Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!

“Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: `While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word `Union,’ he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, `Amen.’

“The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, `Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union’. With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.

Do not doubt for an instant that we are in the midst of a literal war with evil. Obama is currently leading the charge against us. Undoubtedly, there are others in the shadows, who guide him in this war against liberty, but we will likely never know much about them. That isn’t important now. What is important is that we, as a nation, take a stand against the evil arrayed against us. I have hope that America has finally woken up. The emergence of the Tea Party is evidence of that fact. The polls forecasting a conservative victory on November 2, 2010 are evidence to the power of this resurgence of conservatism and God-loving peoples of all faiths.  The midterm elections are just one more battle in the fight against evil. The midterms will represent an important victory in the war against evil – but it will not end that war.

Remain vigilant, America. Go to the polls in immense numbers and reclaim your freedom. Know that our day and our battles were prophesied by President George Washington, by Ezra Taft Benson, by Rush Limbaugh, by Sean Hannity, by Jim DeMint, and by countless others who perceive liberals, progressives, socialists, Democrats, and environmentalists for what they really are – communists.

The war is against communism. It always has been. It always will be. Obama is merely the latest leader of those who would enslave us. Rise up, America and take back that which has been stolen from you. The stakes are high. The dangers are even higher. But we will emerge triumphant, as George Washington saw in vision. America will survive. We will win this war against tyranny.

Get out and vote. Let nothing stop you from this sacred duty. We fight out battles at the ballot box. We fight our battles in the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere. We are not violent. Like Ghandi preached, we fight a bloodless war. The communists will bring bloodshed to this battle but we will not reciprocate. The highest of all victories are won peaceably.

Vote!

And Pray.
