ZIONIST CHRISTIANS SAY: “GOD BLESS ISRAEL!” WHILE THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE SUFFERING UNDER ISRAELI OCCUPATION
by Omar Sharif & Syarif Hidayat
The Zionist Christians or Christian Zionists say: “God Bless Israel!”, while their Christian brothers and sisters have been and are suffering in Palestine under the occupation regime of Israel, a country that even the “Real Jews” oppose its existence!
The Zionist Christians seem to have no empathy toward the sufferings of Palestinian Christians who live under the Zionist Israeli occupation in Palestine. It is naive, arrogant, misguided and dangerous to think that your religion requires you to blindly support Israel.
As a Christian, one has to have a clear directive to love both your Israeli neighbors and your Palestinian neighbors. American and the other western countries Christians, who have only heard one side of the story and look the other way as Israel colonizes the West Bank at the expense of Palestinian Christians and Muslims alike, are part of the problem.
Perhaps pandering to the pro-Israel prejudices of misinformed Evangelical voters seems like a good strategy for Republican presidential candidates, but it is hardly Christian or in America’s interest.
These pro-Israel Christians are in a very real way ignoring the teachings of Jesus and almost literally looking the other way on the Jericho Road. Christians need to educate themselves, challenge the ignorance and racism, and be peacemakers, not part of the problem.
As a human being, I don’t see any justification behind the Zionist Christians in the US and the other western countries of backing Israel. The living conditions in Palestine are appalling. Malnutrition, lack of medical support, and lack of basic human requirements prevails, as is evident from the few television footages we come across every now and then.
The Israeli blockade of the Gaza strip is making the Palestinians (Muslims and Christians) sufferings worse. Israeli control of all access links to Palestine via land, sea and air against the international law, is also chocking Palestinian economy. Frankly speaking, the US, being the only superpower, could change these situations in a matter of a month, but yet Americans especially the people in the corridors of power in Washington prefer just to keep supporting Israel financially, economically, politically and militarily.
As Christians, and as human beings, you should believe that every human life is precious. And people — Palestinian Christians and Muslims –care dying in Palestine. It’s about time that the Washington regime and the US-led western civilization regimes to stop backing of Israel for the sake of safeguarding human lives.
Christians’ sufferings under Zionist occupation
According to Duane Burchick, director of Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation: “Christians are suffering the same fate as Arab Muslims. The IDF uses military might to expel all those who inhibit Zionist pursuits, whether Muslims or Christians – Grounded in the idea that Holy Land belongs to the Jewish people alone….”
Dr. Sherry Muzher, a US-Palestinian Christian wrote on October 25, 2002 – “Christians have also suffered under the inhuman Israeli siege by not being able to leave their towns go to their jobs, seek medical care, and attend schools. Churches have been fired at by Israeli anti-tank missiles, and at least car carrying Catholic officials was fired on despite the waving of Vatican flag….”
Israeli professor Dr. Israel Shahak in his 1994 book Jewish History, Jewish Religion, wrote: “Dishonoring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on Cross, and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews. In the past, when the danger of anti-Semitic hostility was a real one, the pious Jews were commanded by their rabbis either to spit so that the reason for doing so would be unknown, or to spit onto their chests, not actually on the cross or openly before the church. The increasing strength of the Jewish state has caused these customs to become more open again but there should be no mistake: The spitting on the cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, organized in Kibbutz Sa’ad and financed by the Israeli government, is a an act of traditional Jewish piety…”
Jack Bernstein, an American Jew, who lived and got married in Israel – summed up Zionist racist experience in his book “Life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel,” says: “It is against Israeli law to try and convert a Jew to another religion even if the Jew is an atheist or humanist. A Christian is permitted to preach Gospel in a church building, but for the clergy or anyone to even tell teaching in the Bible outside the church building will bring a five year sentence. For a Christian to give Bible or religious article to a Jew will bring a five year sentence. Even an act of kindness by a Christian toward a Jew, such as giving a gift of food, can be interpreted as trying to convert the Jew to Christianity and can bring a five year prison sentence…..”
At the Sixth International Jerusalem Conference, Bishop Attallah Hanna told people that tens of thousands of Arab Christians have fled Palestine under Jewish occupation. Before 1948, Christians made up 12 percent of total Palestinian population with 30,000 living in Jerusalem alone. Since Zionist occupation – Christian population has been reduced to less than five percent with only 7,000 Christians left in Jerusalem.
The Population of Palestine Prior to 1948
The population figures for mandatory and Turkish Palestine are of historical interest and figure in many historical debates. The Zionist claim that Palestine was “a land without a people” is challenged by pro-Palestinian historians who cite census figures showing a substantial Palestinian-Arab population by 1914. The Zionists note that most of this increase seems to have occurred after 1880, when Jews began developing Palestine. In particular, Joan Peters (“From Time Immemorial”) claimed that a large proportion of the population increase among Arabs was due to immigration. Pro-Palestinian historians say that Zionist settlement had begun displacing Palestinians before 1948.
According to official estimates, the population of Palestine grew from 750,000 at the census of 1922 to 1,765,000 at the end of 1944. In this period the Jewish part of the population rose from 84,000 to 554,000, and from 13 to 31 percent of the whole. Three-fourths of this expansion of the Jewish community was accounted for by immigration. Meanwhile the Arabs, though their proportion of the total population was falling, had increased by an even greater number-the Moslems alone from 589,000 to 1,061,000.
Philip Farah a Palestinian Christian, now a U.S. citizen, who is the co-founder of Palestinian American Christians for Peace and of the Washington Interfaith Alliance for Middle East Peace, in his article: “Palestinian Christians Don’t Tolerate Life Under Occupation,” says: Our people are fleeing their homeland because the Israelis are confiscating the land of Palestinians — Muslims and Christians alike — to build Jewish-only settlements and the Apartheid Wall which is ghettoizing many Palestinian communities. Palestinian Christians are leaving because of Israeli checkpoints and barriers that severely restrict the freedom of movement of Palestinians, destroying their economy and preventing their access to their holy places in Jerusalem. They are leaving because Israel diverts Palestinian water resources in a way that gives illegal Jewish settlements the right to enjoy swimming pools while the fields of Palestinian farmers next door go fallow for lack of water.
Palestinian Christians are speaking for themselves through the Kairos Palestine Document: “We, a group of Christian Palestinians, after prayer, reflection and an exchange of opinion, cry out from within the suffering in our country, under the Israeli occupation. … Today, we bear the strength of love rather than that of revenge, a culture of life rather than a culture of death. … [We] endorse nonviolent resistance based on hope and love that puts an end to evil by walking in the ways of justice.”
There is no difference at all in the degree of suffering that Palestinian Christians and Muslims are experiencing under Israel’s long military occupation. To suggest that Palestinian Christians are doing well under Israeli domination couldn’t be further from the truth.
American Methodists and Presbyterians are increasingly troubled by Israel’s ongoing subjugation of Palestinians — Christians and Muslims alike. Though they have long-standing concerns for the welfare of Israelis, many Methodists and Presbyterians believe the time has come to move beyond words and into actively demonstrating to this right-wing Israeli government that they will not stand aside silently as Israel oppresses generation after generation of Palestinians.
In the days and weeks ahead, both the United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church (USA) will consider resolutions to divest themselves from companies — Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions and Hewlett Packard — profiting from Israel’s ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories. If they do so, they will be alerting the Israeli government that the occupation will no longer be tolerated as business as usual. Palestinians have the right to live free of Israeli domination. Methodists and Presbyterians alike could send a very strong message to the Israeli and American governments if they move ahead with these sensible resolutions to divest from companies that shamefully benefit from the repression of Palestinians, Philip Farah said in his article that was originally published in the Huffington Post on May 1, 2012
CHRISTIANS UNDER ISRAELI SIEGE
A recent “60 Minutes” report on the US television network CBS highlighted the plight of Palestinian Christians, whose roots in the Holy Land are as deep as those of Christianity itself. That sacred tradition is under threat, though, as the Christian population continues to dwindle in Palestinian territories occupied by Israel. Within Israel, too, historically Christian enclaves suffer from underdevelopment, poverty, and discrimination from an Israeli state that privileges Jews over non-Jews.
Who are Palestine’s Christians?
Who are Palestine’s Christians? What sparked the Christian exodus from the Holy Land? And how are those who remain faring today? This IMEU (Institute for Middle East Understanding) fact sheet explores these and other questions through the eyes of Christians themselves. MEU provides journalists with quick access to information about Palestine and the Palestinians, as well as expert sources, both in the U.S. and the Middle East.
Historical Palestine — including modern-day Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza — has had a continuous Christian presence since the time of Jesus. Today, that territory is home to just over 200,000 Christians, with roughly 75 percent of these living in Israel, and the remaining 25 percent living in the West Bank and Gaza. About half of Palestinian Christians belong to the Greek Orthodox Church while Catholics, the second-largest denomination, account for the majority of remaining Christians.
Concentrated in Bethlehem and East Jerusalem, West Bank Christians comprise roughly two percent of the population there, while Gaza’s estimated 3,000 Christians account for less than one percent. The latter number has held steady in recent years, while the number of Christians in the West Bank has continued to dwindle — by some estimates, from roughly 15 percent of the total Palestinian population prior to the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. In Israel, some 150,000 Christians remain, but these numbers do not tell the whole story: Following Israel’s creation in 1948, fully 35 percent of the Christian population were prevented from returning to their homes in historical Palestine.
Hailing from all walks of life, Palestinian Christians include major religious leaders like Munib Younan, president of the Lutheran World Federation since 2010 and the Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jerusalem; Archbishop Theodosios (Hanna) of Sebastia, Bishop of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem; as well as Michel Sabbah and Fouad Twal, the former and current Latin Patriarchs of Jerusalem, respectively. Major political figures, including Ramallah mayor Janet Mikhail and Bethlehem mayor Victor Batarseh, are also Christian.
What sparked the Christian exodus from the Holy Land?
The Christian “exodus” from the Holy Land can be traced to 1948, when more than 750,000 Palestinians were forced from their homes by the creation of the State of Israel. With hundreds of Palestinian villages destroyed and at least half of the indigenous population displaced to refugee camps internally or in neighboring countries, Christians and Muslims — whose roots in the Holy Land stretched back for centuries — suffered the same fate.
That Israel bore responsibility for this Palestinian Nakba, or “catastrophe,” was affirmed by the Israeli historian Benny Morris in a 1986 paper for the journal Middle Eastern Studies. In fact, Morris traces the Palestinian exodus to before 1948, when Jewish terrorist groups systematically harassed and expelled tens of thousands of indigenous Arabs. Morris cites a June 30, 1948 “military intelligence” report from the Haganah, which boasted that “at least 55 percent of the total of the exodus was caused by our (Haganah/IDF) operations.” Morris continues:
“To this figure, the report’s compilers add the operations of the Irgun and Lehi, which ‘directly (caused) some 15 percent… of the emigration’. A further 2 percent was attributed to explicit expulsion orders issued by Israeli troops, and 1 percent to their psychological warfare. This leads to a figure of 73 percent for departures caused directly by the Israelis. In addition, the report attributes 22 percent of the departures to ‘fears’ and ‘a crisis of confidence’ affecting the Palestinian population. As for Arab calls for flight, these were reckoned to be significant in only 5 percent of cases…”
Conveniently, the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics offers no breakdown of religious groups for 1948, the year Israel was created. Still, a recent report shows that some Palestinian population centers saw their Christian population virtually gutted; Haifa, for example, lost 85 percent of its Christian residents in 1948. And in any case, no historian, Israeli or otherwise, disputes that Zionist forces unleashed equal brutality on all of Palestine’s Arabs. As such, the modern Christian exodus from the Holy Land began with the creation of the State of Israel.
How are those who remained faring today?
Despite its record of displacing massive numbers of Christians in 1948, Israel, say its officials, has since become the “only democracy in the Middle East” and a safe-haven for Christians. Yet while some 20 percent of Israel’s Christian population includes non-Arab immigrants, most of them spouses of Israeli Jews, the remaining 80 percent is Palestinian — a fact that betrays ongoing Israeli discrimination against most Christians governed by the state.
Like all indigenous Palestinian citizens of Israel, these Christians are subject to more than 35 laws explicitly privileging Jews over non-Jews. Among these is a recently proposed oath requiring all Israel’s citizens, including more than 1.5 million Christian and Muslim Palestinians, to swear allegiance to a “Jewish and democratic” Israel. This overt discrimination rears its head in other ways, too: As Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi has pointed out, not one of the 137 locations covered under Israel’s Protection of Holy Sites Law is either Christian or Muslim.
The situation of Christians in the West Bank and Gaza, territories held under a brutal Israeli military occupation since 1967, is even more stark. Due to Israel’s Apartheid wall and its dizzying system of checkpoints and permits, no Palestinian resident of the West Bank or Gaza, Christian or otherwise, enjoys freedom of worship at Jerusalem’s holy sites. That freedom can only be granted by Israel, which, in contravention of international law, has unilaterally claimed complete control of East Jerusalem, extending its municipal boundaries to expropriate thousands of Palestinian homes and systematically withdrawing their inhabitants’ right of residency. And for those Palestinians who have managed to maintain residency within these forcibly drawn boundaries, Israel has launched a brazen campaign of evictions and home demolitions to make room for illegal Jewish-only settlements and other state projects.
In other areas of the West Bank, Christians suffer from the same movement restrictions applied to all Palestinians under Israeli occupation. Getting from Ramallah to Bethlehem, for example, used to take 20 minutes by car. Today, Israel has claimed that route as an Israeli-only road allowing Israeli settlers to “bypass” Palestinians on their way to illegal settlements. As a result, Palestinians are forced to use the treacherous Wadi Nar — or “Valley of Fire” — road, which itself is subject to closure at the Israeli military’s whim. A familiar struggle for Palestinians throughout the West Bank, the restrictions into Bethlehem take on added significance for Christians, whose access to holy sites there, among them the Church of the Nativity, is frequently denied by Israel.
Gaza’s Christians, though they are a tiny minority, have remained a constant presence, even after Hamas took control of internally governing the territory in 2007. Israel maintains a complete stranglehold on Gaza’s air, sea, and land borders, which has effectively imprisoned all approximately 1.6 million Palestinians there. That most of these residents are themselves refugees or descendants of refugees from 1948 adds insult to the injury of Israel’s ongoing occupation. What’s more, the United Nations estimates that Israel’s blockade has left roughly 80 percent of Gaza’s population dependent on food aid to survive.
Like their compatriots in the West Bank, none of Gaza’s residents, Christian or Muslim, can travel to holy sites outside of their walled enclave without permission from the Israeli military. Worse, even medical treatment has been routinely denied, including in the wake of Israel’s two-week bombing campaign in December 2008 and January 2009, which killed more than an estimated 1,300 Palestinians, approximately a quarter of them women and children. All told, Christians — like all Palestinians — in the West Bank and Gaza continue to be harmed by the Israeli occupation, as it systematically aims to restrict their freedoms, making exodus for some inevitable. And though many of them remain, Palestinian Christian citizens of Israel continue to suffer from discriminatory laws that privilege Jews over non-Jews.
CHRISTIANS DUPED TO BE ZIONISTS BY THEIR PASTOR
Dr. Ken Matto in his article “Anti-Semitic? Who are the Semites?” said: Preachers like John Hagee and the free-will, Pro-Israel church people in the US have been duped by their pastors and radio preachers to believe that the Jews are God’s “chosen people.” That term was started by a Presbyterian Laymen in 1956 (Read Prophecy and Politics by Grace Halsell) and it is not a biblical statement or fact.
He said: “the problem is that if someone opposes a Jew on anything whether they are saved or not, is labeled Anti-Semitic and quite frankly I am sick of seeing doltish Christians defend the enemies of Christ (and all unsaved are) against other Christians.
The term Anti-Semitic began about 1883 just about the time the Zionists were growing in popularity calling for an established home land for the Jews. It seemed that a term was needed to beat down everyone and anyone who opposed the Zionists.
That term was “Anti-Semitic” which is used to this very day on anyone who opposes anything alluding to the nation of Israel or any Jewish person. It is used as an intimidation and terror instrument defaming the character of anyone. You will also find this term being thrown about in the free-will, pre-Trib, Israel worshipping churches by Christians toward other Christians who refuse to bow the knee to Israel or Messianic Judaism.”
According to Dr. Ken Matto, the political definition of a Semite is one who is a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs. It is one who is a descendant of these people. They are a member of a modern people speaking a Semitic language.
Did you notice the number of groups? Four not One! These four groups make up the Semitic peoples of the earth. I have already checked the following out in two dictionaries. The term Anti-Semitic is used only of those who dislike or hate Jews, or as a weapon against whoever the Jews don’t like. Hey, wait a minute, there are four groups who are considered Semitic. “If I hate the Arabs it is not Anti-Semitism but if I hate the Jews it is? Someone is selling the literary world a bill of goods in the dictionaries. If the Semitic people are comprised of four groups, then any hate toward any group needs to be classified as Anti-Semitism. Therefore, if the Jews hate the Arabs, then they are being Anti-Semitic, if the Phoenicians hate the Akkadians, it is Anti-Semitism,” he said.
Eclectic definitions of Anti-Semitism must not be tolerated in favor of one race. It is obvious then that the term Anti-Semitism has been fostered on the non-thinking public as only alluding to the Jews which makes the modern definition a well-planned deception.
“The greatest source of lies and deceit are found in prophecy books written by preachers who are so entwined with Zionist politics and the Zionist Lobby that they have completely lost their ability to discern truth. Yet, Christians buy these Hollywood-style scripts by the millions and then interpret the Bible according to them.” Dr. Ken Matto said.
Why is anyone opposed to zionism?
A homeland for the Jews sounds like a nice idea, and who would deny anyone a homeland? The problem is that although the Zionist movement appears sane and peaceful on its surface, its leaders have always used and still use unspeakably nefarious means to advance their agenda (ie. 9-11).
Ben Freedman (present at the signing of the Balfour declaration) was a Zionist who defected from their ranks and then spent his entire fortune trying to warn Americans of the Zionist agenda. Ex-Zionist Benjamin Freedman speaks at the Willard Hotel, Washington D.C., in 1961. He left the Zionist movement, changed his name from the Jewish spelling (Friedman), and exposed some of the diabolical plots that helped set the stage for the wars in Europe and the Middle East.
He does not give the complete story, but when we make the same accusations, we are referred to as “anti-Semites”, so let people hear it from a Jew, and then they will be more receptive to what we say. The general public needs to be made aware of this so they might avoid the horrors that visited upon 40 million Russians who were killed after the Bolshevik revolution, and other mass murders that have often accompanied a Zionist-contrived change in government. America is being set up for destruction right now, but it’s not visible to most because what passes for a history lesson in America has less to do with the truth than most fairy tales. For instance; The Bolshevik revolution was not an uprising of the oppressed Russian people, but in reality it was a Zionist coup, after which the Zionists slaughtered millions of Russians.
After the revolution, the “communist party” took over, which party was comprised of about 270 Zionist Jews from the lower east side of NYC. Trotsky wasn’t even Russian. He was a Jew from the Bronx. The entire operation was funded by Jacob Schiff, who was an agent of the Rothschilds. Was this a “communist” revolution, or was it a Zionist revolution camoflauged by a new political ideology? It gets uglier when we discover that the exact same Zionist families are responsible for Nazism too. Zionism needs anti-Semitism to scare Jews into supporting it.
This is why every time they catch someone spray-painting a swastika on a wall, they turn out to be Jewish, and this is why the famous Skokie, Illinois Nazis, who marched through Jewish neighborhoods dressed in Nazi uniforms, were also revealed to be Jews. Now it gets even crazier. The Zionists who claim a right to their biblical “homeland” in Israel are Askenazi Jews, and have no ancestrial tie to Israel whatsoever, and the Sephardic Jews who actually descended from the twelve tribes of Israel insist that the Torah forbids them from returning until they’re led back by their messiah.
So the Jews who were actually cast out of Israel refuse to return without divine guidance, and the descendants of Asian warloards who converted to Judaism in 740 A.D. insist that God entered into some type of real estate deal with them. Go figure.
The famous 1961 speech by this New York businessman exposes “Zionist control of the US Government,” including the plot to push the US into WWI in order to annex Palestine, thereby sowing seeds of Nazism and Communism. (yes, both Nazism and Communism were Zionist creations, despite the lies you were taught in school).
“The Torah forbids us to strive for the reunion or possession of the land by any but spiritual means.” – Rabbi S. R. Hirsch
“Not via our desire did we leave the land of Israel, and not via our power will we come back to the land of Israel.” – Rabbi S.D. Schneerson
“Zionists want a state in order to make Jews into heretics.” – Rabbi C. Soloveichik
“The Zionists have attacked the center point of Judaism.” – Rabbi V. Soloveichik
THE REAL JEWS OPPOSE “State of Israel”
A well-known Jewish writer G. Neuburger in his article “The Difference Between Judaism and Zionism,” says : ”Of all the crimes of political Zionism, the worst and most basic, and which explains all its other misdeeds, is that from its beginning Zionism has sought to separate the Jewish people from their God, to render the divine covenant null and void, and to substitute a “modern” statehood and fraudulent sovereignty for the lofty ideals of the Jewish people.
One means of misleading many Jews and all too many non-Jews is the Zionist misuse of names and symbols sacred in Judaism. They use the holy name Israel for their Zionist state. They have named their land acquisition fund with a term that traditionally implies the reward for piety, good deeds, and charitable work. They have adopted as a state symbol the menorah (candlebrum). What hypocrisy, what perversion it is to have the Israeli army fight under an emblem, the meaning of which is explained in the Tenach (on the occasion of a previous return to the Holy Land) as, “not with armed force and not with power, but in My spirit says the Lord of Hosts.”
WHY ORTHODOX JEWS AND THE WORLD JEWRY ARE OPPOSED TO A ZIONIST STATE?
1) What is “The People of Israel” ?
The People of Israel have existed for thousands of years.
They have their own particular, essential nature.
The Torah is the source of their essential nature.
Without Torah and Faith there is no People of Israel.
Whoever denies the Torah and the Faith is no longer part of the People of Israel.
The purpose of the People of Israel in this world is Divine Service.
Their salvation is occupation in Divine Service.
2) What is Zionism?
Zionism is a relatively new thing.
It has only existed for a century.
Zionism redefines the true essential nature of the People of Israel, and substitutes for it a completely contradictory and opposite character – a materialistic worldly nation.
Their misfortune is lack of what other nations possess, i.e. a state and army.
Their salvation is possession of a state and army etc.
This is clearly spelled out in the circles of Zionist thought, and among the leaders of the Zionist State, that through changing the nature and character of the People of Israel and by changing their way of thinking they can set before the People of Israel “their salvation” — a state and an army.
The People of Israel oppose the so-called “State of Israel” for four reasons:
FIRST — The so-called “State of Israel” is diametrically opposed and completely contradictory to the true essence and foundation of the People of Israel, as is explained above. The only time that the People of Israel were permitted to have a state was two thousand years ago when the glory of the creator was upon us, and likewise in the future when the glory of the creator will once more be revealed, and the whole world will serve Him, then He Himself (without any human effort or force of arms) will grant us a kingdom founded on Divine Service. However, a worldly state, like those possessed by other peoples, is contradictory to the true essence of the People of Israel.
Whoever calls this the salvation of Israel shows that he denies the essence of the People of Israel, and substitutes another nature, a worldly materialistic nature, and therefore sets before them, a worldly materialistic “salvation,” and the means of achieving this “salvation” is also worldly and materialistic i.e. to organize a land and army. However, the true salvation of the People of Israel is to draw close to the Creator. This is not done by organization and force of arms. Rather it is done by occupation to Torah and good deeds.
SECOND — Because of all of this and other reasons the Torah forbids us to end the exile and establish a state and army until the Holy One, blessed He, in His Glory and Essence will redeem us. This is forbidden even if the state is conducted according to the law of the Torah because arising from the exile itself is forbidden, and we are required to remain under the rule of the nations of the world, as is explained in the book VAYOEL MOSHE. If we transgress this injunction, He will bring upon us (may we be spared) terrible punishment.
THIRD — Aside from arising from exile, all the deeds of the Zionists are diametrically opposed to the Faith and the Torah. Because the foundation of the Faith and Torah of Israel is that the Torah was revealed from heaven, and there is reward for those who obey it and punishment for those who transgress it. The entire People of Israel is required to obey the Torah, and whoever doesn’t want to, ceases to be part of the congregation of Israel.
FOURTH — Aside from the fact that they themselves do not obey the Torah they do everything they can to prevent anyone they get under their power from fulfilling the commands of the Torah, the claims to freedom of religion are lies. They fight with all of their strength to destroy the Faith of Israel.
The Zionists claim that they are the saviors of Israel, but this is refuted by twelve things:
FIRST — If one contemplates the two thousand years of our exile, take any hundred years even the hardest, one will not find as much suffering, bloodshed, and catastrophes for the People of Israel in the period of the Zionists, and it is known that most of the suffering of this century was caused by the Zionists, as our Rabbis warned us would be the case.
SECOND — It is openly stated in books written by the founders of Zionism that the means by which they planned to establish a state was by instigating anti-Semitism, and undermining the security of the Jews in all the lands of the world, until they would be forced to flee to their state. And thus they did – They intentionally infuriated the German people and fanned the flames of Nazi hatred, and they helped the Nazis, with trickery and deceit, to take whole Jewish communities off to the concentration camps, and the Zionists themselves admit this. (See the books Perfidy, Min Hameitzor, etc.).
The Zionists continue to practice this strategy today. They incite anti-Semitism and then they present themselves as the “saviors”. Here are two replies given by Leaders of the Zionists during World War II, when they were asked for money to help ransom Jews from the Nazis. Greenbaum said “One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland.” (G-d forbid).
Weitzman said, “The most important part of the Jewish people is already in the land (of Israel) and those who are left, are unimportant” (May we be spared).
THIRD — We see that most of world Jewry lives in security and under good physical conditions, and have no desire to go live in the Zionist State. Whereas many people have left the Zionist State to live under better conditions in other lands.
FOURTH — The Zionists make a great deal of propaganda to induce people to immigrate to their state. If their state is so beneficial why do they have to make so much propaganda.
FIFTH — Because nobody wants the Zionists to “save” them. The only way they can get immigrants is by promising poor people material benefits, and even then very few people respond.
SIXTH — The Zionist State is always threatened by the dangers of war. Whereas the rest of world Jewry live in peace and security, (Except in a few places where the Zionists have undermined their security and fanned the flames of hatred)
SEVENTH — The Zionist State could not continue to exist without economic support from Jews living outside of the Zionist State.
EIGHTH — The Zionist State is on the verge of economic collapse, and their money is nearly worthless.
NINTH — The Zionist State persecute all Jews who are loyal to their Faith.
TENTH — They start wars that endanger the Jewish People, for the sake of their own political interests.
ELEVENTH – According to the Torah the path of safety is following ways of peace not starting fights with other nations, as the Zionists do.
TWELFTH — Even if the Zionists could and would provide physical security it would be at the expense of our Faith and Our Torah the true People of Israel prefer death rather than life at such a cost.
It is therefore clear that Zionism is not the savior of the people of Israel. Rather it is their greatest misfortune. Even though there are some observant Jews and rabbis, who approve of the Zionists, this is not the opinion of the Torah. The Zionists have enough control over the American news media to make sure that only their side of the story is heard. They make it look like all Jewry and their rabbis are Zionists, but this is false propaganda.
The most important Rabbis and the majority of religious Jewry are opposed to Zionism, but their voice is not heard because of Zionist control of American news media. The Zionists terrorize everyone who speaks out against them. That part of the Jewish masses which is fooled by Zionist propaganda puts pressure on their Rabbis not to speak out. Between the terror and the pressure of the masses most of the Rabbis are prevented from speaking out.
HERE ARE Orthodox jews rabbis STATEMENTS: We bring three testimonies of the true opinion of the Torah.
1) In the past two thousand years of the dangers and sufferings of exile not once did any of the Sages of Israel suggest that we make a state to protect ourselves. In every generation we had thousands of Sages well versed in the Torah.
2) We have thousands of legal work of Torah law that have been handed down to us by the Sages of all generations. Not once do we see a word suggesting the establishment of a state. What we do find is warnings against it.
3) The founders of Zionism were all atheists who denied the Torah. All the Torah Sages of that time opposed them and opposed Zionism, saying that Zionism would lead only to destruction.
However the true People of Israel will never change their nature or give up their Faith because of the strength the Creator gives them. Zionism is a foreign growth in the body of the Jewish People. The end will be that it will rid itself of this foreign growth and remain pure. Zionism has overcome the Jewish people by force, fraud and terror, but none of this will help them because the truth will always remain with the help of the Creator. Zionism will not replace the Jewish People. The Jewish People will remain strong in their faith and the Zionist State will cease to exist.
It is therefore, our demand that the State that calls itself ISRAEL, should cease to exist. Since this won’t be done, we demand that they cease to call themselves “Israel”, because their entire being is in complete opposition to the true People of Israel. The true People of Israel deny them permission to call themselves by that name. The Zionist leaders have no right to set themselves up as the representatives and spokesmen of the true People of ISRAEL. Since we know they will not fulfill this demand either we feel that at least we cry out the truth. The truth will always remain the truth. By no means or force can the truth be changed. Even if all the world would say that one and one is three, the truth will remain that one and one is two.
Let the truth be declared. The use of the Name “ISRAEL” by that State is a complete falsification. The People of Israel have nothing to do with that State. Zionism and its State have no share and no part in the true ISRAEL. (OS-HSH)
