You need to hear what this atheist had to say about anti-Semitism

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Violent anti-Israel protests are happening all around the globe, most notably in France where protesters have clashed with police and set the streets on fire. This is nothing new, however, as anti-Semitism has been around since the beginning of civilization. An unlikely source – late atheist Christopher Hitchens – explained it best.

“I don’t think we ever head Christopher Hitchens up as a guy you should listen to, but you should listen to him. One of the biggest atheists on planet earth in the last 50 years…listen carefully to what he said about Israel,” Glenn said.

Back in 2010, Hitchens said:

Because anti-Semitism is the godfather of racism and the gateway to tyranny and fascism and war, it is to be regarded not as the enemy of the Jewish people alone, but as the common enemy of humanity, and of civilization, and has to be fought against very tenaciously for that reason. Most especially in its current, most virulent form of Islamic Jihad.

Daniel Pearl’s revolting murderer was educated at the London School of Economics. Our Christmas bomber over Detroit was from a neighboring London college, the chair of the Islamic Students’ Society. Many pogroms against Jewish people have been reported from all over Europe today as I’m talking, and we can only expect this to get worse, and we must make sure our own defenses are not neglected. Our task is to call this filthy thing, this plague, this pest, by its right name, to make unceasing resistance to it, knowing all the time that it’s probably ultimately ineradicable, and bearing in mind that its hatred towards us is a compliment and resolving some of the time at any rate to do a bit more to deserve it. Thank you.

“He’s right. Anti-Semitism is not about the Jews, anti-Semitism is a scourge against humanity,” Glenn said. “We have to be very, very clear. And in this country, we no longer can speak plainly to each other. They have tried to make us afraid. No one dare molests them now. No one dare make them afraid. This is their hour, this is their time. You must be very clear and stand against this storm. You must be very, very clear.”

“I want you to know, people of the world, listen, listen. We outnumber them. The good people of all faith, color and creed, we outnumber the bad guys. Listen, people of Islamic faith, you outnumber the bad guys. You just have to stand up. And if you won’t, well, then there’s nothing we can do. As we have seen in Iraq, if you won’t stand up for your own freedom, America can’t come in and help you. You have to do it. And Americans, the same with you. If you won’t stand up and at least speak out against injustice — forget and freedom. Forget about freedom. What does it even mean? What most people want is justice. You want to see the bad guys go to jail. You want to see the good guys win. We live in a society now, we don’t even think the good guys win anymore. Can you really point to the good guys and the bad guys? It’s really getting difficult. Why? Because justice is fading,” he continued.

“We must speak of justice and mercy. And we must forget about the gun. To revolution is truly won with a gun. It is won with an idea. What is our idea? Win the hearts and minds with our ideas. And our ideas are, all men, all men are created equal and endowed by their cry voter with certain inalienable right, life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, that is our idea. And in support of that idea, we must pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

    I cannot and would not try to stop free speech. It is a double edged sword is free speech. If we limit free speech here then where else next? It is the actions of violence and laws targeting those who worship freely that I worry about. Of course if you are muslim that is different because there is no such thing as peaceful muslims. They are one prayer rug away from Jihad at all times. Speak what you will but your rights end where other people’s noses begin. If muslims don’t want to be exterminated, they had better learn to curb their hate because nobody else can get along with them. Russians have problems with them as does China and India. Muslims can’t even get along with other muslims.

    First, he is referring to the Jewish people as a race, not as a religion, and that racism is a terrible thing that lead to tyranny, facism, and war (e.g. apartheid in South Africa, Ireland, and Palestine). Secondly, no news outlet is stating that a numerous amount of Palestinians are Christians. Is it because you would be struggled in your decision to support Israel? I, for one, support Palestine. They are in probably the largest prison in the world, their food is regulated by the Israelis, they cannot have any outside food or building goods, they are watched 24/7, 365, and they cannot leave. Hopefully the UN steps in and gives them the territory they so rightly deserve.

    In 1947 they were two separate entities based on the UN partition. Over time the Israelis illegally pushed out and murdered Palestinians (much like they are doing now with every 25 Palestinian death, some of them christians, one Israeli soldier died). Israelis illegally expanded, based on the UN judgement, into Palestinian territory. The Israelis are guilty, based on UN judgement, of numerous human rights abuses, one being forced sterilization of immigrants into Israel without the knowledge of the victims. My question to you would be, if you were in the situation in which your territory was being encroached upon by a tyrannical government that cut off your supplies and food, only allowing you rations a day, monitored you every day, and kept expanding itself onto your territory, what would you do? Keep in mind that if you supported Clive Bundy you would be somewhat hypocritical to not support Palestinian efforts.

    As a Christian I would find it difficult to believe that a Palestinian Christian would want to exterminate Jews. If they would claim that then I would seriously question there Christian bona fides. As far as being in a prison that is a lie. They are free to leave and go anywhere but if they wish to go to Israel they must get permission. They can always go to another muslim friendly nation they choose. But they just want to invade Israel and cause trouble and suicide bomb Israel. Israel has a right to keep any people out they choose as does every other nation. I just wish we had secure borders in America.

  • landofaahs

    It’s the same lie as the democrat left say about border fences being like the Berlin Wall. The Berlin Wall kept people in against their will whereas a border fence keeps undesirables out. But the left is nothing but lies.

    Maybe you need to refresh your understanding of history by going back to WWI or 1873 or 1843 or really go back to 135 AD or 70 AD. But if you want to understand the ownership of the land. Go to 333 BC the battle of Issus and subtract it from 2,300 then read Daniel 8. The date you will arrive at is date the world wants to change and world peace hangs in the balance. But what it really is a promise kept to Israel by God!

  • Anonymous

    Allow me to enlighten you.

    You do realize the majority of the land gained by Israel was a result of them defending themselves from attacks. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. A ceasefire was signed on 11 June 1967 and the Golan Heights came under Israeli military administration. Syria rejected UNSC Resolution 242 of 22 November 1967, which called for the return of Israeli-occupied State territories in exchange for peaceful relations. Israel had accepted Resolution 242 in a speech to the Security Council on 1 May 1968. In March 1972, Syria “conditionally” accepted Resolution 242,and in May 1972, the Agreement on Disengagement between Israel and Syria was signed.

    In the Yom Kippur War of 1973, Syria attempted to recapture the Golan Heights militarily, but the attempt was unsuccessful. Israel and Syria signed a ceasefire agreement in 1974 that left almost all the Heights under Israeli control, while returning a narrow demilitarized zone to Syrian control. A United Nations observation force was established in 1974 as a buffer between the sides.By Syrian formal acceptance of UN Security Council Resolution 338, which set out the cease-fire at the end of the Yom Kippur War, Syria also accepted Resolution 242.

    On 14 December 1981, Israel passed the Golan Heights Law, extending Israeli administration and law to the territory. Israel has expressly avoided using the term “annexation” to describe the change of status. However, the UN Security Council has rejected the de facto annexation in UNSC Resolution 497, which declared it as “null and void and without international legal effect”,and consequently continuing to regard the Golan Heights as an Israeli-occupied territory. The measure has also been criticized by other countries, either as illegal or as not being helpful to the Middle East peace process.

    Syria wants the return of the Golan Heights, while Israel has maintained a policy of “land for peace” based on Resolution 242. The first high-level public talks aimed at a resolution of the Syria-Israel conflict were held at and after the multilateral Madrid Conference of 1991. Throughout the 1990s several Israeli governments negotiated with Syria’s president Hafez Al-Assad. While serious progress was made, they were unsuccessful.

    Israel also had control of the Sinai Peninsula which they acquired while defending themselves from an attack by Egypt. Israel returned it in exchange for a promise of peace to Egypt and have always been willing to trade back the acquired lands for peace, unfortunately they are surrounded by people who don’t want peace.

    So, in conclusion, Israel was always present among the Palestinian lands, but their state grew in size as they acquired land masses after fending off attacks from Arab entities that were trying to destroy them. They have always proposed trading that land back in exchange for peace, and have even done so with the Sinai Peninsula (a land mass larger than the entirety of Israel itself) and Egypt. If they want the land back, all they have to do is agree to peace.

    Incorrect, I explained why in response to one of your earlier comments.

  • slickrick

    Actually, there are such things as peaceful Muslims. Of 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, only a small minority deserve the title of ‘radical’ or ‘jihadist’. Most of the rest live (reasonably) peacefully in our cities all over the world. In fact, many Muslim scholars would say that a true interpretation of the Quran would lead a Muslim to a life of non-violence. This is because while all Muslims would argue for the necessity of a ‘jihad’, only some Muslims believe ‘jihad’ means ‘Holy War’ – the rest believe ‘jihad’ means something similar to what a Christian would call ‘the struggle against temptation’. Jihad, to those Muslims, is more of an inner, spiritual battle. But as is usually the case, non-education produces radical sentiments, as demonstrated by radical Muslims… or the Westboro Baptist Church.

    What I just said is a minor detail that you have missed. The larger point I’d like to make is that if we want peace, we all need free speech – including the Muslims. And we all need to converse, instead of scream at each other.

    God has a plan, He is executing that plan and if you want to understand it you need to do what Jesus told us to do read the book of Daniel. The key can be found in Daniel 8 by simply subtracting 333 from 2,300 you will arrive at the year 1967. This is the date the world
    wants to change. This is a very bad Idea in the 14th year 7th month of Ezekiel’s war

    Radical Islam = Ku Klux Klan. The issue that Christianity had with the
    KKK are the same issues Islam has with the Jihadists. Until Christians
    stood up (with a lot of prodding from the rest of the world) and said “No, you DO NOT represent my beliefs”, the KKK ran

    Prior to 1947 UN resolution:

    Against this tableau of unceasing conquest, violence, and overthrow, Zionist efforts to build a presence in the Holy Land until 1948 stand out as astonishingly mild, mercantile rather than military. Two great empires, the Ottomans and the British, ruled Eretz Yisrael. In contrast, Zionists lacked military power. They could not possibly achieve statehood through conquest.

    Instead, they purchased land. Acquiring property dunam by dunam , farm by farm, house by house, lay at the heart of the Zionist enterprise until 1948. The Jewish National Fund , founded in 1901 to buy land in Palestine “to assist in the foundation of a new community of free Jews engaged in active and peaceable industry,” was the key institution — and not the Haganah, the clandestine defense organization founded in 1920.

    Zionists also focused on the rehabilitation of what was barren and considered unusable. They not only made the desert bloom, but drained swamps, cleared water channels, reclaimed wasteland, forested bare hills, cleared rocks, and removed salt from the soil. Jewish reclamation and sanitation work precipitously reduced the number of disease-related deaths.

    Only when the British Mandate of Palestine gave up power in 1948, followed immediately by an all-out attempt by Arab states to crush and expel the Zionists, did the latter take up the sword in self-defense and go on to win land through military conquest. Even then, as the historian Efraim Karsh demonstrates in Palestine Betrayed , most Arabs fled their lands; exceedingly few were forced off.

    This history contradicts the Palestinian account that “Zionist gangs stole Palestine and expelled its people” which led to a catastrophe “unprecedented in history” (according to a PA twelfth-grade textbook) or that Zionists “plundered the Palestinian land and national interests, and established their state upon the ruins of the Palestinian Arab people” (writes a columnist in the PA’s daily). International organizations, newspaper editorials, and faculty petitions reiterate this falsehood worldwide.

  • ReasonAndLogic

    I’d say Radical Islam is slightly different than the KKK. It’s a weird in between of the KKK and a bit of per-reformation Christianity. Christianity experienced it’s Protestant Reformation and has generally been on track since then (not, I’m not saying Catholics are bad, I myself am one but since the reformation happened Christianity has generally not been a terror). Islam hasn’t experienced it’s reformation yet and honestly, I’m not sure if it will. Until more Muslims speak out against the radicals and try to fix the problems within the Sunni and Shia branches themselves (basically three main points to hit) Islam will continue to be a menace. Also please not I’m not saying all Muslims or even most are bad, I have some very good Muslim friends, but people just don’t speak out compared to how people speak out against the KKK and WBPC.

    With due respect to Mr. Hitchens, a spiritual war against Evil can only be won by 1. G-d fearing people 2. whose faculties control their passions 3. with the humility to judge oneself by the same standards one judges others taking into account the extenuating circumstances of others, not one’s own. Without those three attributes one cannot win a spiritual war against Evil.

    May the G-d that he never believed in in life, be with Mr. Hitchens in death.

    You are delusional. I have been on the Sinai Peninsula, Israel, and Egypt. My job? Stopping the smuggling of arms into Gaza. Palestinians left Israel in 1947 WILLINGLY at the behest of surrounding Arab nations who wanted them out so they could invade Israel without worrying about the Palestinian refugees. The Arab armies never came until many years later when they got their butt stomped in 1967. Israel is the only WORKING democracy in the middle east and they are a totally integrated society. There are many Israelis of Arab AND Palestinian lineage living peacefully in Israel. How many Jews would be allowed to live in Gaza? Israel was given to the Jews by God Himself! Who are you to lay claim to it for the Palestinians?

    It is Hamas that calls for the destruction of Israel and all Jews! They will accept nothing less and have stated this TO THE ENTIRE PLANET! Your head is buried colon.

    Sorry, but even global news agencies reported Palestinians leaving on their own due to the call by surrounding Arab nations for them to leave so that they could then invade Israel with their armies. The partition remained in place until those armies DID invade in 1967. They were roundly defeated. In my book, when you defeat your enemy, you own the land. The fact that they gave ANY land back is charitable because they had no obligation to do so.

    Your map is wrong. Need I pull out the historical news reports from global news feeds from the period to REALLY put you on the spot as a revisionist?

    “if you were in the situation in which your territory was being
    encroached upon by a tyrannical government that cut off your supplies
    and food, only allowing you rations a day, monitored you every day, and
    kept expanding itself onto your territory, what would you do?”

    I know what I would NOT do:

    Rocket indiscriminately with unguided rockets.
    Use suicide bombers to kill civilians in market places and buses.
    Use non-combatants as human shields.

    Hamas is doing each of these. They protect their rockets with human shields then act outraged when civilians get killed.

    Historically, Jews (which is a term that doesn’t appear until later English) refers to those of the tribe of Judah (a son of Jacob aka Israel), those Israelites (Israel was the name of their forefather, so yes it is a “race”) who lived in the area of the kingdom of Judah after the kingdom of Israel (ie the northern kingdom after the split during Solomon’s son’s reign), and those who practice the religion of the Judeans and Israelites (such as the Samaritans who lived in the territory that was the kingdom of Israel, after the Assyrians invaded and displaced the Israelites living there, but then sent the Hebrew priests back in to teach the new inhabitants the religion of the land, ie what is now known as Judaism).
    So, yes, a Jew historically refers to the tribe descended from Israel, so they are a race.
    Remember, Hitler didn’t ask what religion they were practicing, he just checked their ancestry to see if they were Jewish.

    I stand with Israel. Always have and always will. I do not question G-d’s will and He has made that clear: We are to support the Jews and never turn our back on them. Our government may someday turn their back on Israel and it’s people, but I will not. Though I do not speak for all that believe as I do, you can take it to the bank that it is the majority of our nation. I have already had to angrily set an insolent nephew straight regarding the lies his professor spewed in the popular cause for Palestinian liberation. My brother informed him that he would lose all financial support for his studies if he insists on supporting Palestine. Each of the arguments that he parroted from his indoctrination were soundly destroyed to include the one sided account of the
    massacres at Sabra & Shatila. He now knows beyond a doubt who the liars are.

    Hello! It’s 2014! The Palestinian government actively supports and has partnered with Hamas! Hamas does want peace, but only at the destruction of Israel and it’s people. That is their goal.

    Have you heard of Israel calling for the destruction of Gaza? Only in your deluded dreams.

    Now if I had a neighbor that has sworn to kill me, I would do everything in my power to defend myself and if that neighbor tried to do so, I would destroy him. Only him, not his family. If he grabbed his child and came shooting at my family and I shot them both, who is guilty? I am very familiar with children being used as human shields as I am a combat vet and have witnessed it first hand.

    Interesting article… inaccurate, but interesting.

    A combined invasion by Egypt, Jordan and Syria, together with expeditionary forces from Iraq, entered Palestine – Jordan having declared privately to Yishuv emissaries on May 2 it would abide by a decision not to attack the Jewish state. The invading forces took control of the Arab areas and immediately attacked Israeli forces and several Jewish settlements. The 10 months of fighting, interrupted by several truce periods, took place mostly on the former territory of the British Mandate and for a short time also in the Sinai Peninsula and southern Lebanon.

    As a result of the war the State of Israel retained the area that the UN General Assembly Resolution 181 had recommended for the proposed Jewish state and also took control of almost 60% of the area allocated for the proposed Arab state, including the Jaffa, Lydda and Ramle area, Galilee, some parts of the Negev, a wide strip along the Tel-Aviv-Jerusalem road, West Jerusalem, and some territories in the West Bank. Transjordan took control of the remainder of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Egyptian military took control of the Gaza Strip. No Arab Palestinian state was created. In 1949 all the belligerents – except the Iraqis and the Palestinians – signed the 1949 Armistice Agreements.

    They abandoned their land in many cases in 1947. The Israeli’s purchased vast tracts of land from Palestinians as well. Why should they be allowed to return to land that they abandoned and in many cases was the result of being sold? What part of Israel won the 1967 six day war do you not get??

    When the wall came down in Germany, do you think that former East German land that was confiscated from West German owners and given to East Germans after the wall was erected should be given back to the original West German owners? Their own courts have ruled no right of return of land. And this is between a nation of like people! You still think Palestinians have a justified claim?

    This is God’s will:

    “For I (God) will gather ALL the nations to battle against Jerusalem, the city (Jerusalem) shall be taken,
    the houses rifled, and the women ravished (brutally raped).
    Half of the city (Jerusalem) shall go into captivity,
    but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.”
    (Zechariah 14:2)

    And here is God’s judgement on the people of Palestine:

    “For Gaza shall be forsaken,
    And Ashkelon desolate;
    They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday,
    And Ekron shall be uprooted.
    Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast,
    The nation of the Cherethites!
    The word of the Lord is against you,
    O Canaan, land of the Philistines (Palestinians):
    “I (God) will destroy you
    So there shall be no inhabitant.”

    2/3′s of Israel will die. It will be a very short victory because what comes next will be the destruction of those that rose up against Israel as our Lord Jesus Christ returns not as the lamb but as the lion.

    Yes. Even the US will turn their back on Israel. Our nation will suffer for this and be destroyed along with the rest as the Messiah establishes His Kingdom. How can any nation stand? They cannot.

    Let me clarify, when I said “let Israel defend themselves” I mean stop hindering their ability to defend themselves. Israel has been very successful against the Islamic countries in the past so as long as Obama, the UN, etc. don’t get in their way they will likely be victorious. Isreal has/can kick serious a$$ when it wants to.

    I agree with you that the USA should help Israel, but do you really think Obama and the left is going to honor the treaties to come to Israel’s aid? I don’t. If things really get bad I think the democrats will drop support for Israel just like they dropped support for our allies in Vietnam. That’s why Israel should, as much as possible, strengthen itself so it doesn’t have to depend on the USA for help.

    Israel of doing too little to avoid civilian deaths, and condemning

    “There seems to be a strong possibility that international
    humanitarian law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war
    crimes,” Pillay told the U.N. Human Rights Council. “Every one of these

    free speech – most everyone that subscribes here would whole-heartedly agree to keep that. The ones that disagree would be the radicals you speak of, no matter the religion. The bottom line is every has the right to live, period. Anyone who disagrees with that statement needs to be removed from the world society in some way, jail, whatever your preference. Speech, property, pursuit of happiness are all for naught if the destruction of life is the stated purpose. What amazes me is that the whole world is not up in arms against Hamas. Their stated goal is the destruction of the Jews and Christians; do you really think that the other non-believers would fare any better? Yet there is for the most part at least an acceptance that they have the right to that viewpoint. Well sure they do, and to voice it as well, but they DO NOT have the right to act upon it. Everyone needs to stand against this type of thing every time it happens.

    If the people of Gaza want freedom of movement along with freedom to import goods without Israel controlling it, then stop trying to import weapons, missiles, and materials that are used to make bombs and for destruction of Israel. You would think that the residents of Gaza would be fed up with what Hamas has brought down on them.
    Palestine was not originally inhabited by Muslims. Palestine has been controlled by numerous different peoples, including the Ancient Egyptians, Canaanites, Philistines, Tjekker, Ancient Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, early Muslims (Umayads, Abbasids, Seljuqs, Fatimids), Crusaders, later Muslims (Ayyubids, Mameluks, Ottomans), the British, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1948–1967, on the “West Bank”) and Egyptian Republic (in Gaza), and modern Israelis and Palestinians. One could argue that Palestine cannot be “claimed” by any ethnic group. That puts us in current Palestine, (Israel, west bank and Gaza). Comparing this situation with colonists coming to America is ignorant and grasping at straws. The Jewish people were driven from their land. They have it back and won’t give it up so easily. They are willing to live in peace and prosperity with their neighbors. Wars have been fought because Muslims could not and would not live in peace. Israel gains more land. More wars and more land. You would think others would learn from history that Israel won’t be easily defeated. Yes, they get help from the U.S., just as Hamas gets help from other Muslims and countries like North Korea. It’s in Israel that Jews, Muslims, Christians, etc. can live and work in peace. Even Egypt has closed the border crossing and destroyed tunnels from Gaza to Egypt. Time for the Muslims in Gaza to start thinking about what Hamas has done to them. Israel has offered them so much for peace. Stop with the talk of wiping them from the face of this earth and they can live in the 21st century.

    I refer the defenders of Islam to Sura 9, one of the Medina Suras – and particularly verse 29. Muhammed, using the voice of Allah as he understood it, laid out the three choices now offered by ISIS – convert, choose dhimmi status (and the tax) or be warred upon (the term is “war”, but the result is death).

    But I’ll also point out that there are militant passages in the Torah (the first five books of the Old Testament) – and that there have been militant times in Christian history. Ironically the latter weren’t the Crusades, which were intended to reopen access to Jewish and Christian holy sites that were being blocked by the Caliphate, they were the conversion by the sword after Constantine’s conversion – the expansion of what became the Holy Roman Empire into pagan Gaul.

    The difference is that these were passing phases, the militant parts of the Torah were not taken as the “word of God” dictating conquest and conversion. The words of Jesus can’t be interpreted as promoting a world wide “submission” (the definition of the word “islam”), although some churches at some times have done so.

    If a Jew were to take some of the passages in the Torah (the five books of Moses) literally he would be obligated to “smite” the unbeliever. If another one were to take other passages literally he’d be obligated to support a privileged priesthood in order to have access to his God. A situation that was extant, BTW, in the time of Jesus and which he rebelled against. Judaism developed, and swung back and forth, over a millenium. Modern Judaism takes several forms, some fundamentalist and other interpretive, but none militant for conquest, We can say the same of Christianity.

    Islam, on the other hand, takes the word of God as spoken by Muhammed in the Qu’ran as an absolute not subject to interpretation. We see that in the 1400 year rift between Shi’a and Sunni – their only difference is in the sequence of Caliphs back in 632 AD and yet they find that to be a blood feud.

    I’ll agree with the responders who say that there are moderate Muslims, but also say that those are not committed Muslims. I’ll paraphrase Will Rogers who said “I belong to no organized political party, I’m a Democrat” (in his time that was true). “I belong to no organized church, I’m an Episcopalian”.

    Finally I come to Mr. Hitchens. The great beast is absolutism. I have an acquaintance who considers me to be a bigot, I’m not sure why, but it may have to do with my not being PC. My answer is that I’m not a bigot, I’m a snob – I dislike people without regard to race, color or creed (and like people in the same way). The priests passed the man on the road, the good Samaritan stopped.

    The question to ask is, What is Israel’s end goal? What if Hamas and Islamic Jihad dug tunnels beneath the entirety of the Gaza Strip—they clearly did not, but let us assume they did for the sake of argument. According to Israel’s logic, all of Gaza’s 1.8 million Palestinians are therefore human shields for being born Palestinian in Gaza.

    The solution is to destroy the 360-kilometer square strip of land and to expect a watching world to accept this catastrophic loss as incidental. This is possible only by framing and accepting the dehumanization of Palestinian life. Despite the absurdity of this proposal, it is precisely what Israeli society is urging its military leadership to do. Israel cannot bomb Palestinians into submission, and it certainly cannot bomb them into peace.

    If you don’t accept that Jesus as the son of God and it is only thru Him that you have access to the Father .. what other biblical truths are there from the Orthodox Church that are so different from this? Many build their religion on churches rather than on the word of God. That’s why God hates religions only for the fact that they tend to build barriers between man and Him. We must worship Him spiritually … as Jesus is the true sheppard and we His sheep.

    I believe, after reading so many comments here and in other articles, that there is a method I use that many of you need to try out. We are, after all, talking about action here. Many times one can find the right side by stripping away the layers of ideology and bias. There is a nation of people. Another nation of people started firing rockets into their country indiscriminately. The rockets were killing people. This caused terror in the streets. Women and children were being killed. Regardless of their reasoning, their allegiances, their religion…this is wrong! No one among us would not respond. The attacked nation did just that. The attacking nation uses the civilians of their country as shields against any retaliation. They blame the other when these same civilians are killed. This is for ALL intents and purposes….wrong! It would be wrong for anyone to do, for any cause, or for any allegiance.

    For the people defending against such actions to be ridiculed and judged defines those who choose to ridicule and judge them.

    No one on earth can sufficiently justify such actions no matter their beliefs…no matter the flag that flies above them…no matter the banner, the motto, the creed, the color, the religion. The indiscriminate taking of innocent life is murder. And we must condemn our own as quickly and completely as we do others.

    The fact that we are once again watching Europe choose the wrong path again is shocking. I fear that America needs to shut down all borders and immigration for at least five years. The extreme Muslims are in schools with our children and they are raised to hate us. This is what happened with the Boston bombing brothers and they were in school with our children as were the young men who helped the other brother. The F.B.I did nothing about the warnings from Russia or to warn the police. This is why we need to stop immigration, and discuss what we need to do when the people who are supposed to protect us do not because of the politically correct system that now seems to run our country.

    “The fundamental cause of Zionism has been, and is, the ineradicable national striving of Jewry to have a home of its own—a national center, a national home with a national Jewish life,” (36) This thought was later echoed by Mrs. Moses P. Epstein, national president of the American Jewish women’s organization, Hadassah: “The Zionist movement is a revolutionary program organized to bring about a radical and fundamental change in the status of the Jews the world over. The sooner the world knows it, the better.”

    Wolvee all this person said was 3 words on a comment page. How could you possibly know their intent. Any time that we confess Christ in any manner it glorifies Him and the Father. This was a judgmental statement that you made and how does this glorify Christ? 3 simple words should not of even been a debate. Do you know landofahhs? How could you possibly know what the intent was in their statement. I did not feel they were scolding anyone. To me simply saying that “I’m with Jesus” is not stating that they are against Israel. Israel is Gods chosen Nation and God chose Israel to bring the savior of the world…Jesus Christ. Because I stand for Christ, I stand for Israel. As Christians we should not be casting judgments, on other believers, especially on a person that we do not know and with 3 words that were used in a post. As a Christian you should have been happy that they said that they stood for Jesus, and assuming their intent when you really don’t know their intent at all was wrong.

    You said “I’m with Israel”. Is that scolding? No. It was a mere statement of where you stood as was my statement “I stand with Jesus”. So it was glorifying Jesus because he knew how I meant it even though you did not. But you did show a quick jump to judgment. But that’s your right. Shalom,.

    Silence should be the best answer for a fool like you.

    Glenn, the real reason for all the worlds insanity is because the majority of the world turn their backs on God in order to live according to their own will instead of God’s will. Unless people start turning back to our creator, there will never be peace. Evil will continue to grow until God steps in and says, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH” And tribulation begins.

    Westboro Baptist Cult is committing suicide bombings and cutting people’s heads off? Even the most radical Christian group you could think of is not as violent as the least radical Muslim group you could think of. Equating Westboro Baptist to radical Muslims doesn’t work.

    The Invention of the Jewish People
    by Shlomo Sand( professor of history at Tel Aviv University)

    Countering official Zionist historiography, Sand questions whether the Jewish People ever existed as a national group with a common origin in the Land of Israel/Palestine. He concludes that the Jews should be seen as a religious community comprising a mishmash of individuals and groups that had converted to the ancient monotheistic religion but do not have any historical right to establish an independent Jewish state in the Holy Land. In short, the Jewish People, according to Sand, are not really a “people” in the sense of having a common ethnic origin and national heritage. They certainly do not have a political claim over the territory that today constitutes Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem.”

    This gets bandied about all the time, the idea that only “a small minority” of Muslims are radical. As if it’s unreasonable to be concerned with Islamic terrorism. Then comes the inevitable moral equivalence, as you just did – comparing radical Islamists with the Westboro Baptist church, to try and obfuscate the issue.

    WBC is a wacko fringe group of weirdos who NO ONE takes seriously. Jihadists, on the other hand, this tiny minority you speak of, are about 10% of all Muslims, at the very least. Out of a worldwide total of 1.5 billion Muslims, that makes, let’s see, only 150 million people who would have no compunction about sawing your head off, or at least standing aside chanting Allahu Akhbar while someone else did it. And if you believe the polls, the number of Muslims who support Shariah are closer to 25-30% off the worldwide Muslim population.

    So please do take your moral equivalence somewhere else.

    IF he is an atheist, there is no moral ground. There is no racism, no murder no evil, we are just random chance green slime.

    Violent anti Christian purges, attacks and murders are happening all over the world too. Sometimes it is by Mohammedans, sometimes by others such as progressives, Marxist. It has been this way for just about forever. It needs to be fought but not allied with such as Christopher Hitchens. Being allied with Stalin, Mao subjected millions to a tyranny ever bit as horrible as Hitler’s.

    Congrats, you’ve managed to somehow miss a very clear point completely.

    I neither hate Christians and unlike you, any other religious group either, nor am I blind, also unlike you. I’m not sure what you mean by “Q’s,” but if you under the misperception that I’m gay, I’m sorry your gaydar is jammed, please hit on someone else. I’m not interested in psychotic, racist xenophobes of any gender.

    I know the history of the area – The misery began, when a small tribe in the old Judea accepted a creed based on race. The tribe had previously been expelled by the Israelites for such racism. This seemingly unimportant event has probably caused more destruction for Mankind than both the existence of explosives and epidemics. The tribe adapted the creed of the Master Race as nothing less than “The Law”.

    The Judeans were a small tribe under the Persian king. The creed of Judaism was not the beginning of monotheism, as has been propagated. Monotheism dates all the way back to The Egyptian Book of the Dead, 2.600 years b.C. and maybe even further.

    “The Law” or “The Pact” was – and is – unique in being based on a statement from a tribal god, to the effect that his “chosen people”: “the Israelites” (in reality, the Judeans) would be set above all other peoples and settled in a “promised land”, if only they would stick to all of his rules and judgements. If Jehova, then, was to be worshipped in a certain place, it followed, that when the worshippers were not actually in that place, they were being “persecuted”, in “captivity” and had to “destroy” the “strangers” that “kept them in captivity”. Only in this way was Jehova to be a god for all other peoples – as the punishing god, who punished his own people first – by a “captivity” among the heathens for their “transgressions against the law” and then, as by an exact script, punished the strangers by a predestined extermination, when “the chosen people” had followed all the rules to the letter.

    It was probably not even a pact with the Judaeans, for according to “The Holy Scripture”, the pact was made with the Israelites, who had long since mingled with the rest of Mankind, and who have never known this racist creed as far as we know. The Jewish Encyclopaedia says, that the Judeans “probably were a non-Israeli tribe”. The Israelites turned away from the racism of the Judeans. The creed has gone down in history as having been created by the Levites from Judea.

    Sadly the ‘world’ will not stand up against the radical jihadists. muslims are just following the leader they are uneducated willfully ignorant lemmings.

    Jesus is for Israel too. He was born a Jew, lived as a Jew and died a Jew. He said God( the God of Israel) was His Father. The God of Israel is the God of the Christians. I’m with Israel because my God is for Israel.( Christians need Jews to exist. Jews do not need Christians. We owe the Jews a debt.) For those interested see Joel 3 for how god will judge the nations. God bless the Jews and the Christians who love them and Israel.
