Anti-Israel Policy Spells Disaster for U.S.

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Obama, and by extension, the United States, will only be able to thumb their nose at God for so long before he responds, with a vengeance.

Washington has stepped up pressure on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to move forward with the resumption of direct talks after 18 months of stalemate. Observers say President Obama is in a full-court press for purely political reasons and desperately needs some kind of foreign policy success before the mid-term elections in November, where the Democrats could take a sound thrashing.

[Ben] Kinchlow says one only need look at countries throughout history that have either divided the land of Israel or persecuted the Jewish people.

“And you will find all the way from Egypt to Rome and all the way down to the last great empire, which was the British Empire which divided the land of Israel — every one of those empires have fallen on the ash heap of history,” he states.

“And I am deeply concerned that if America pursues this anti-Israel policy demonstrated by a current president we might find ourselves equally on the ash heap of history.”

‘Anti-Semitism is worse in 2010 than 1910’

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

As Satan takes over control of more and more of the world’s population, and morals continue to degrade to the point of absurdity, it should come as no surprise that he would level his ire against God’s chosen enemy, the Jews and the county of Israel.

Times are dire, anti-Semitism is on the rise and the world is becoming a more perilous place for the Jews to live in by the day, if you ask Prof. Robert S. Wistrich, the head of the Hebrew University’s Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism and the author of a recently published book on the subject called A Lethal Obsession: Anti-Semitism – From Antiquity to the Global Jihad.

The evidence to support his claim is all around us, he said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

“Anti-Semitism is continually morphing all the time, which is its strength,” he explained. “There’s no sign of diminution and it will probably get worse. We see it in every indicator possible showing a clear and steady rise in the number of attacks recorded on Jews.”

Why are things as bad as he believes they are? Wistrich says the last decade has seen a several strands of hatred towards Jews intertwine forming an unholy alliance between the extreme left and right together with fundamental Islam.

“What I think that really struck me about the last decade that I don’t think was new but has become more intense is that we’ve seen the coming together of classical anti-Semitism with a number of other strands like anti-Americanism, Islamic fundamentalism and international delegitimization of Israel. Their convergence has become much starker.”

But not everyone agrees with Wistrich’s opinion. As one reviewer of his tome pointed out, as prevalent and intolerable as anti-Semitism may be nowadays it couldn’t possibly be any worse than it was, say, back in 1910, could it?

However, according to Wistrich, it is.

“The year 1910 in comparison with what we’ve been living through in the past decade is a paradise,” he said unhesitatingly. “There was a nasty and ugly potential for anti-Semitism in 1910 but relatively speaking Jews lived in a stable environment and as one Jewish writer Stefan Zweig wrote it was an age of golden security.”

The one big exception to that rule is Czarist Russia, that great bastion of anti-Semitism where Jews were confined to live under institutional discrimination within the confines of the Pale of Settlement and were victims of periodic pogroms. Anti-Semitism in Russia in 1910 was worse than it is today, he admits – but not the West.

“Today, even in the most advanced and democratic societies, Jews are uncomfortable,” he claims. “The real difference between 1910 and today is not that anti-Semitism is less common but that Israel provides a powerful shield and deterrent. Not a perfect deterrent and also a cause of anti-Semitism in itself.”

‘Amnesty’ Memo Reflects ‘Dictatorial’ Attitude

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

It’s no secret that Obama would like nothing more than to be Emperor of the United States. He holds to the idea that democracy is just something that gets in the way of his wholesale establishment of his socialist programs.
This “amnesty” memo is yet another weapon in his arsenal against democracy. He knows that if he grants amnesty to illegal aliens, he is practically guaranteed to have a massive block of voters who will vote Democrat for the rest of their lives. He can, with this one act, remake our country into a one party system…his party. His socialist agenda would be unopposed.

The alarm continues to be a raised over a private internal memo from the U.S. Customs and Immigration Service that indicates President Obama has an amnesty plan in the works for many illegal immigrants. (See earlier story)

The memo was drafted by four officials at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service to the director of the department, Alejandro N. Mayorkas. Jan LaRue, senior legal analyst with the American Civil Rights Union (ACRU), believes the memo serves as evidence the Obama Administration intends to go around Congress in its attempt to acquire amnesty for illegal immigrants.

“They’ll be granting visas and work permits and green cards to people who have illegally entered this country,” she maintains. “They’ll do it by a thousand here and a few million there, but they are clearly evidencing an attempt to do it.”

In a column published earlier this month on Townhall.com, LaRue suggests that the proposed “registration program for individuals who are unlawfully present in the U.S.” includes registering those individuals as Democrats.

While LaRue cautions that the memo does not prove the Obama White House will implement amnesty, she does believe it reveals clues to what many have thought to be true.

Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Advises NAACP To ‘Look Within’ First

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr would be very disappointed in what his assistants (Rev. Jackson and such) and the NAACP have become.

Dr. Alveda King says claims by NAACP members that the Tea Party supports racism are absurd. “One or two people in the Tea Party with some misguided views do not make the whole Tea Party,” she offers.

King says national leaders of the NAACP need to focus on themselves — including their acceptance of money from groups like Planned Parenthood, which King says promotes the genocide of black Americans.

“Planned Parenthood’s infiltration into the NAACP is very obvious — and they need to just repent,” she advises.

“Handwriting on the Wall” by Terry James

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Think with me for a moment–back to the time on September 11, 2001, when you first learned of the World Trade Center tower being hit by the commercial jet. All eyes quickly went to television screens everywhere in America. Then the second tower was hit, and we were awestruck at the ensuing carnage that took the lives of nearly three thousand people who couldn’t escape the horror.

Remember when the huge monoliths collapsed to rubble with billowing clouds of smoke and dust–a holocaust of flaming fuel and the blood of crushed, burning humanity.

Those of us who look through the prism of God’s prophetic Word couldn’t at that stunning moment help but consider that we were witnessing an event that punctuated the fact that the very end of the age was upon us. The United States of America was somehow, in the collapsing of those giant towers, brought front and center into God’s focus for judgment and wrath about to be unleashed upon a world that has rejected Him.

Fast forward to this week. Another God-rendered exclamation mark seems to have punctuated the handwriting on the wall that began the final sentence of human history. The message written across the New York City skyline this week is not just ironic or even eerie. It is, I think, staggering in its supernatural import.

The New York Landmarks Preservation Commission ruled by a vote of 9-0 that some buildings at 45 Park Place, a few blocks from where the World Trade Center towers stood before the attacks of the radical Islamists, will not receive historic status. This ruling opens the way for the construction of a huge mosque and Islamic complex on the site. The building that stands where the mosque will be built was struck by one of the commercial jet’s landing gear after the plane crashed into one of the 110-story towers. But in my view, that is not the truly unfathomable thing regarding the matter of having a super-mosque erected right across from the place where thousands were murdered by those who claimed Allah as their deity. The supernatural nature of all of this is wrapped up in the fact that the mosque builders are, as of this moment at least, claiming they will begin construction of the mosque itself on September 11, 2011. Imagine the audacity! And the mayor of New York City, an American–even more than that, a Jew–said the following in giving an approving nod to opening the way for, again in my view, the desecration of “Ground Zero” where so many died and where is scheduled to be constructed the “Freedom Tower.”

“[The World Trade Center site] will forever hold a special place in our city, in our hearts. But we would be untrue to the best part of ourselves–and who we are as New Yorkers and Americans–if we said ‘no’ to a mosque in Lower Manhattan.”

One writer has encapsulated well the incredible foolhardiness of the action in allowing such a slap in the face to New Yorkers and to all Americans.

Can you imagine back in 1950 if there had been an effort by Japanese-Americans to build a Shinto center honoring Emperor Hirohito just two blocks from Pearl Harbor? Furthermore, imagine that the building was planned to open on December 7, 1951, just in time to celebrate the tenth-year anniversary of this cataclysmic attack. Faster than you can say “Tora Tora Tora,” one can hardly contemplate the absurdity of such a plan.

Fast forward to now and imagine the family of Timothy McVeigh. They have plans to build a thirteen-story addition to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, which opened in 2001, where the Murrah Federal Building once stood. The family would like to commemorate McVeigh’s life and help foster understanding and tolerance to those who hate the federal government— in hopes that a future domestic terrorist would visit the McVeigh Wing and decide against blowing up a federal building killing 168 innocents like McVeigh did on April 19, 1995.

The perfect timing for the construction of this wing, the family says, would be April 19, 2015–the twentieth anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. I am sure the city council and the mayor of Oklahoma City would vote a resounding NO.

You know where I am going with this.

On September 12, 2001, do you think anyone in New York City could imagine that nine years later a mosque would be approved at 45 Park Place, to be completed in time for the tenth-year anniversary of 9/11? One would guess not. (Myra Adams, “Building the 9-11 Mosque Will Not Breed Tolerance,” 8/5/2010, http://dailycaller.com/2010/08/05/building-the-9-11-mosque-will-not-breed-tolerance/#ixzz0vksg3xWp)

America and the world have long been holding a debauched banquet to which the God of heaven was not invited. America disinvited Him in 1963 by the judicial act of doing away with prayer and Bible reading in public schools.

The True Deity and His prescription for living life, given through His love letter to humanity–the Bible–has been evicted from all public places, for the most part. Thus with this exclamation point of supernatural irony–Islam’s achieving its mocking tribute to its symbolic conquest of America–the finger of God might be writing upon the wall America has erected to separate the nation from Him. This nation’s and the world’s prophetic fate might thereby be in the heavenly process of being sealed.

Tragically, the message might indeed be one not unlike that Nebuchadnezzar’s grandson, Belshazzar, saw being written across the wall of the Babylonian banquet hall that housed the party during his last day on earth.

And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. (Dan. 5:25-28)

Time to do what we can for the cause of Christ might be very short. The time to do the Lord’s business is fleeting swiftly. Whatever contributions we have to put into heavenly bank accounts must be done now. “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
