The Devil in the Details – Netanyahu’s 100 Year War against ‘Militant’ Islam as the Death Blow to Western Civilization

 By

Whatsupic — The most dangerous thing about Benjamin Netanyahu –and no one should make the mistake of thinking he’s anything otherwise– is that he appears ‘normal’ by human standards. He speaks with a ‘human’ voice, seems to have all the required ‘human’ hardware and behaviorisms and in general is able to pass muster in his daily interactions with others. Best guess is that he has skin rather than scales, eyelids rather than slits, and doesn’t slither on his belly from point A to point B…

Netanyahu 400

The truth however is that all of this ‘humanism’ –for lack of a better word– attributed to/associated with Netanyahu is just an illusion of sorts, and the world –for the sake of its own collective life and limb– would be best served by turning a blind eye and deaf ear towards black magic such as this.

 Despite a few outward superficialities, there is nothing ‘human’ about ‘Bibi’, nor about those who hold membership in his exclusive street gang.

Like the ravenous wolf dressed as the harmless old lady in the childrens’ story, his true nature is something else entirely…Otherworldly and subterranean…A living, breathing nightmare, oceans-deep with rich, horrific detail or some dark, foreboding chapter out of either Poe or Stephen King. A wild animal in an expensive suit, ‘King Bibi’ is the stuff of Apocalyptic warnings from centuries past, where prophets went mad forecasting a future time of monsters in human form prowling about the world and remaking it into something more to their liking–soaked in blood, scorched with fire and teaming with every type of human suffering imaginable…The type that causes Satan to beam with hopeful pride while simultaneously giving God worry lines and chest pains, he’s the ‘human’ equivalent of the rabid canine that the local sheriff is periodically called out to shoot for the sake of a terrified townspeople. Better suited for either a zoo or a laboratory, specimens like Netanyahu are those whose deeds eventually become so record-breakingly evil in their size and scale that they become permanently burned into the collective memory of man like some mental scar that is passed down generation after generation. He’s the ‘businessman’ whose private deal with the devil takes place each morning while staring into the mirror, a ‘true believer’ in the most dangerous sense of the word, similar to the cyborg featured in The Terminator films who doesn’t need to be pushed or prodded when it comes to inflicting violence against innocent people, given that the program loaded onto his mental/spiritual hard drive is write-protected and impervious to any outside tampering.

This – his ability to blend in with his human surroundings and thus escape detection – is singularly the most important component making him the danger to the civilized world that he is. A beast walking on 2 legs, it is his chameleonesque ability to replicate the outward appearance of humanness that has provided him with the keys to the kingdom and membership to a club where he does not belong, a tragedy due more to the cooperative blindness of his soon-to-be victims rather than to any curse from heaven or quirk of fate.

But besides the truly terrible nature of his nature making him the clear and present danger that he is, it is all the extra baggage he carries with him that portends the worst. While it’s true that humanity has never suffered a shortage of anti-social individuals with ‘bad attitudes’, nevertheless given their lack of resources and inferior positioning on the economic and political chessboard means that the misery they’re able to inflict on large numbers of people is for the most part mitigated.

Obviously not so with Netanyahu. Head of the largest crime family in human history, with life-or-death power over not just millions, but indeed billions of people arising out of the stranglehold he and his cousins maintain over economics, media and politics, he keeps a terrified world in line with the threat of lighting off some (or all) of the 400 nukes that he and his loyal disciples have smuggled into every world capital over the course of the last several decades. Leaders from every country – from the U.S. to the U.K. to the U.A.E. – doubtless have had it explained to them in infallibly explicit language that as far as he and his demands are concerned, every request – be it money, political protection or increased war for Israel’s benefit – is an offer that no one can refuse, for the simple reason that when Bibi hears the word ‘no’, bad things happen. Economies crash. Bombs blow up at marathon events. Planes fly into skyscrapers or computer systems that manage and maintain critical infrastructure functions such as powergrid, clean water, or those preventing meltdowns at nuclear powerplants go haywire.

But again, more dangerous than Netanyahu’s inherently violent, vicious and volcanic nature (paired with his ability to make good on the Judaic voodoo he threatens from time to time) is the manner by which he is misunderstood by most of his would-be victims. Rather than being feared for the deadly, highly-venomous viper that he is, instead he is mocked, jeered, ridiculed, made the butt of jokes and in general taken no more seriously than one of the highly-neurotic characters featured on the television series Seinfeld. In an obviously clear, unequivocal warning to the ‘civilized’ world concerning what kind of unpleasant fate awaits mankind if his demands are not met, he personally orders and oversees – in broad daylight – the butchering of more than 2,000 human beings in Gaza and yet few hear or understand the language being used… Standing before the United Nations and on full display before 14 billion eyes and ears the world over he wields cartoon drawings conveying his personal promise to incinerate every square inch of God’s green earth unless 75 million Iranians are mass-murdered in a real-life/real-time/real-deal re-enactment of the Judaic blood-festival Purim, and rather than this threat being recognized for what it is, instead it is treated like stand-up comedy appearing on an episode of Saturday Night Live. With obvious sneering and condescension, pundits and commentators around the world snicker at the entire spectacle, not realizing that as they do so, a 200 megaton gun is being pointed at their heads and that in the end – barring some act of God – Nutty Netty will be the one having the last laugh the moment he lights the fuse and walks away.

What can be said about all of this, other than ‘it is what it is…’ Rarely has any tidal wave of evil – in this case, psychopaths hijacking ships of state and deliberately steering them over the cliff and into the abyss – beset mankind throughout history where there weren’t clear warning signs that trouble was coming. Mother Nature may indeed be unpredictable when it comes to her oftentimes temperamental mood swings, but as far as the dark side of human nature goes, more often than not the tic-tic-ticking sound of a human time bomb about to go off is hard to avoid hearing.

Nevertheless, as history – and especially present day events – has all-too-tragically shown, people can be convinced (seduced) into believing that the tic-tic-ticking sound they clearly hear is but a figment of their imagination, thus giving otherworldly/subterranean creatures such as Netanyahu the passive cooperation they need in conjuring forth their particular brand of murder and mayhem. Few and far between are those willing to trust what their common sense tells them and recognize the danger for what it is vs. those multitudes who ignore the thunderous noise of the onrushing waters until it is upon them and there is no escaping it.

The difference now of course is that the waters in question are deeper, faster and more lethal. Never before in human history has so much violent, Apocalyptic power resided in the hands of so few people who were free to do so much damage with so little effort.

And – just like his dangerous nature that should not be underestimated – neither should people underestimate the length and breadth to which Netanyahu plans to take all of this at days’ end, an awareness that can only begin with knowing that the one thing which he does best and loves the most is war.

Just as the profile of some infamous crime lord is incomplete without including background scenery such as money laundering, prostitution, drugs, bribery, murder, etc, likewise an accurate accounting of Benjamin Netanyahu remains informationally anemic without mentioning his abnormal appetite for state-sponsored mass-murder, otherwise known as war. Simply stated, take this aspect out of any discussion featuring Netanyahu and there is nothing left to discuss.

For ‘Bibi’ – the latest incarnation in a long line of King David wannabes – war is his beating heart, (if he has one) his lifeblood (if he has any) and the electrical current that powers his mental functions, if indeed any exist. Envisioning himself the great, great grandson of biblical warrior kings such as Moses, Joshua et al, who ‘made their bones’ (at least as recounted within the pages of Jewish ‘holy’ texts such as Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Numbers, etc) by fulfilling the commands of Yahweh to ‘slaughter them all and utterly destroy them’ and to ‘save nothing alive that breathes’ and all the rest of the biblical madness which Israel uses in justifying the Gentile-cide that she perpetrates in the region, war on behalf of the Jewish state is as sacred to Netanyahu as Holy Communion is to Catholics or Salat is to Muslims. Whereas within the ‘civilized’ world, war is considered a pestilence and is viewed only through the lenses of dread, regret, reluctance, reservation, etc, for Netanyahu war is playtime, and the various killing fields over which he has personally presided – from Gaza to Syria to Iraq and beyond – are his playgrounds. While the sights and sounds of deliberately inflicted human suffering and carnage cause civilized others to recoil in horror, for Bibi and co. they are a source of spiritual electrification, similar in many respects to the excitement felt by prospectors once gold has been found. Like the High Priest featured in Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto who rouses the fervor of his flock to a state of religious hyper-mania by cutting out the living, beating hearts of innocent human victims, so too do Netanyahu and his fellow acolytes achieve the same type of psychological climax in knowing that the god of Israel – as depicted within the various ‘holy’ books of Judaism – is appeased and satiated with the rivers of blood shed in his honor.

Therefore, when he talks about Iran being destroyed, what he means is I-R-A-N  B-E-I-N-G  D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-E-D, brick by brick, bone by bone… Likewise Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, town after town, city after city, country after country and – if necessary – continent after continent, wherever the religiously-mandated ritual of Gentile-cide may be practiced, as if all of it were some type of installment plan attached to a debt that – according to the accounting firm of Israel, Israel and Israel – can never be paid off.

The fact that Netanyahu is a ‘purest’ when it comes to the business of Armageddon – and no one should make the mistake of thinking he is anything otherwise – is clearly evident in the various snarlings and growlings attributed to him over the years but which have been mischaracterized by the Gentile world as meaningless political meanderings with no deeper implications attached. Indeed, just as with the infamous ‘bomb-gonna-go-boom’ cartoonery he utilized at the UN General Assembly in 2012 conveying the threat of Judaically-induced holocaust against Gentiledom if his demands regarding war with Iran and others are not met, likewise have there been numerous other instances where Mr. 666 talks with the mouth of a man but speaks the language of the beast.

And if ever there were an instance where the world should have perked up its ears and honed in on that tic-tic-ticking sound of a human timebomb about to blow, it was in June of 2012, a mere few months prior to his well-known incident at the UN, where Netanyahu, like some crime boss giving orders to his assembled caporegimes, addressed a gathering of pro-Zionist operatives in the U.S. via telecom and discussed the manner by which ‘militant Islam’ would be defeated by the end of the 21st century.

Not by the end of the year or end of the decade, but end of the century.

For those who don’t get the math here, what this means is that a war that began when the 21st century was a mere newborn baby still in diapers, a war that’s already destroyed the lives of millions of people, decimated the global economy, stopped human progress dead in its tracks and set 1.5 billion Christians and 1.5 billion Muslims (collectively making up nearly 1/2 of the world’s population) at each others’ throats is – according to Netanyahu’s timetable – ‘jes gettin’ warmed up,’ with another 88 years to go.

And let no one be fooled by his use of the term ‘militant’ as a qualifying adjective in describing Islam. Like his bomb cartoon brandished at the UN, this was typical gangsterese on his part, i.e. saying one thing but meaning another… Rabbinical sleight-of-hand and a spell of sorts meant to hypnotize the collective Gentile mind and prevent it from understanding what kind of devastating Judaic black magic he and his fellow wizards have cooked up in their caldron of Zionist intrigue.

His use of the term ‘militant’ – meant to materialize in the Gentile mind imagery of ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda, etc – in actuality is an all-encompassing term meaning any and all followers of Islam. To Netanyahu and co, the ‘militant’ Muslim is the Palestinian boy who throws rocks at IDF terrorists who just shot his mother and baby sister in cold blood… It is the young Iraqi woman who – despite seeing her country obliterated after 20 years of Israeli-engineered war, nevertheless – insists upon maintaining her chastity and wearing her hijab… It is nations such as Iran, Syria, Libya (before its destruction) and others who insist upon remaining sovereign, stable countries, as opposed to those such as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia et al who have surrendered their necks over to the vampire and in the process become mere handpuppets to global Zionist designs.

In short, to Netanyahu (and to those who share his vision of the future) ‘militant’ Islam is any organized barrier – spiritual, political, economic, social or moral – to the same deadly Z-Ebola contagion that has decimated the nations of the ‘Christian’ West. Just as all social order within the once-vibrant Christian civilizations has been transformed into an extended real-life/real-time/real-deal re-enactment of The Walking Dead as a direct result of the town well being poisoned with the toxic, fecal-laden moral sludge flowing out of the synagogue, so too is this the only form of Islam that Netanyahu and co. find ‘acceptable’. As carriers of a deadly spiritual virus that cannot exist in a sterile, anti-biotic environment, Netanyahu and co. understand that Judaism and Islam occupying the same space on this late, great planet earth is simply not possible. Whereas Christianity – given its fatal attachment to the same Torah that serves as the beating heart and lifeblood of the entire Judaic structure – provides organized Zionist interests a ‘back door’ through which hackers may surreptitiously enter and hijack the religion based upon the teachings and personhood of Jesus Christ for their own criminal purposes, Islam however contains no such liabilities. In Islam, there is no depiction and celebration of founding fathers such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, et al being thieves, liars, murderers, usurers, war criminals, etc, in the same manner by which they are represented in Judeo-Christianity and which forms the basis upon which the entire Zionist narrative rests.

Therefore, given that no such depictions exist within Islam that can be used in penetrating, subjugating, degenerating, mutating, debaucherizing and bastardizing it so as to bring it ‘into the fold’ as a cooperative family member alongside Judeo-Christianity, the only way it can be dealt with is through war.

The devoted followers of Judaism – understanding that it is an all-or-nothing paradigm that has no place in its lexicon for ideas such as ‘live and let live’ – understand therefore that Islam cannot be permitted to continue as a pure and incorrupt ideology, but must instead either be made sick and weak through a century of war so as to mitigate its influence in world affairs or else be eradicated from the planet in its entirety.

And this, the Apocalyptic, far-reaching implications of Netanyahu’s 100 year war against ‘militant’ Islam, is the devil in the details that few – especially in the West – seem to grasp. The peoples of the once-Christian West, basking in their unrivalled power – economic, political, military, etc – fail to see that – contrary to what their bought-and-paid-for religious leaders tell them – it is not ‘God’ who has blessed their civilization with such largesse, but rather the most dangerous crime family ever to exist in human history. A century ago, just prior to this, the ‘Jewish Century’ (as described by writer Yuri Slezkine) the time period scheduled to serve as the 100 year gladatorial game between Christianity and Islam, organized Zionist interests began the process of seizing control of the various power centers of the West, after which time steroids cooked up within the temples, lodges and synagogues were pumped into the body of Western Civilization so as to create this present monster-in-human-form that had but one purpose – to prowl about the world and remake it into something more to the liking of Judaism’s eternal aims – soaked in sacrificial blood, scorched with sacrificial fire and teaming with every type of sacrificial human suffering imaginable.

Equally tragic is the fact that the West – in acting as the dutiful, loyal un-hired hand for the synagogue in rampaging through the Islamic world and eradicating the one remaining block of resistance to the same system of institutionalized evil which prophets of old went mad foretelling, at the same time what these worshipers of the beast fail to understand is that this 100-year campaign against Islam actually has 2 intended victims, the 2nd one being Christianity itself. By setting the 2 peoples – who collectively make up nearly half the world’s population – at each others’ throats, what organized Jewish interests hope to achieve is the killing of two birds with one stone. 100 years of ceaseless, bankrupting war can only result in the complete economic and political meltdown of the aggressor civilization that can then only result in its own ruination. As a civilization ostensibly built around the teachings and personhood of Jesus Christ, it will cease to exist as such, leaving only Judaism as the dominant influence in world affairs, and as such, the synagogue and its ruling class, the Sanhedrin, will have finally achieved what did not materialize 2,000 years ago with a mafia-hit against a Galilean carpenter that backfired.

To many, a scenario as Apocalyptic as this, brought into being by a mere string of words requiring no more than 5 seconds in speaking and coming out of the mouth of a mere man seems implausible. Accustomed to associating big things only with big beginnings, many are – to their own detriment – incapable of joining together images such as raging infernos and tiny sparks.

Such skeptics would do well however to remind themselves that similar conflagrations throughout history – before war became the instant, on-demand product that it is now – began in similar ways, including one that destroyed the lives of tens of millions of people that began with one bullet fired by an assassin named Gavrilo Princep in 1914.

Indeed, in many dramatic and traumatic events throughout history, it is the details – including (or especially) those coming out of the mouths of nightmarish creatures such as Netanyahu – that often matter, the small things that seem to escape the notice of the average ear and the average mind, but which in essence are the corners, closets and crevices that serve as hiding places for the devil.

Zion’s New Crusaders: Ezra Levant – Muslim Hunting Jew – Rallies Canada’s Zionist Christians in Support of Israel by Arthur Topham

Zion’s New Crusaders: Ezra Levant – Muslim Hunting Jew – Rallies Canada’s Zionist Christians in Support of Israel

by Arthur Topham

July 27th, 2014

It was just a matter of time before Canada’s Zionist media mouthpiece Ezra Levant reacted to Israel’s rain of hell-fire and brimstone that’s been falling on defenceless Palestinians in Gaza since July 13.

The Jew-controlled media around the world and here at home have been working their butt off ever since the Israeli government decided that it was time for another blood sacrifice to their satanic god, Moloch the Death Eater, doing their utmost to muster support for the murdering, blood-thirsty Zionists while the Internet explodes with outrage, disdain and negative reaction to their demonic deeds.

I’m sure the Zionists across the nation were shocked to see the number of Canadians who, finally fed up with the insanity of the Zionist Jews, took to the streets in great numbers to protest what will likely go down in history as a benchmark event in terms of that point in time where the awareness of what’s truly happening in Palestine is finally sinking  in for the majority of decent people across the nation.

Recent events in Calgary, Alberta where a large anti-Israel protest occurred and some rabid pro-Israel Zionist Jews got a thumping for starting trouble, has triggered what Levant is calling his “Calgary for Israel Rally” which is slated to take place in front of Calgary City Hall on Thursday, July 31st at 6 p.m.

Israhell Rally

Rally Map in Calgary, AB

Levant has a website erroneously called “Fighting for Freedom with Ezra Levant” where he sends out email to his subscribers. In his latest rally cry for support for poor, beleaguered Israel he writes:

“I live in Toronto now, but as a lifelong Calgarian I was appalled to see a riot by anti-Israel extremists that happened on the steps of City Hall. Worse still, the police did nothing — they weren’t even there. And half a dozen Calgarians were sent to hospital by this Hamas-style violence.

I’m fighting back — peacefully. On Thursday, July 31st at 6:00 p.m., I’m hosting my own rally. It’s partly in support of Israel. But it’s partly for Calgarians to strongly reject this imported Hamas-style violence.

This is Canada — not Gaza.

If you’re in the Calgary area on Thursday, please join us! All of the details are available at CalgaryForIsrael.ca.

Ezra Levant

P.S. Please spread the word about the CalgaryForIsrael.ca Rally on Twitter and Facebook. This event is in Calgary, but let’s make a national impact — we want peace in our Canadian streets, not riots and violence.”

Now how’s that for chutzpah? Ezra the Muslim Hunter who’s been spreading ongoing hatred toward the Arab people via the Sun News Network and elsewhere for decades is now going to rally all the Christian Zionists that he and his rag tag band of Irgun-inspired criminals have been duping and milking for donations for decades and show Canada and the world just how much our nation STANDS FOR ISRAEL!

Heaven forbid that such an outcome would occur but given the fact that Canada’s Christians have been dumbed down for so long by the Jew-controlled news media; so much so that Christians, whose very Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ, was murdered by this same gang of Talmudic Rabbinical tyrants two thousand years ago and they still haven’t figure out who the devil to trust, it will be of great interest to see to what degree their decades and centuries of mind-control propaganda will have on them and whether they’ll turn traitors like Harper and the Conservative government and pledge their allegiance to this foreign, apartheid and racist warmongering state of Israel rather than to their own country of birth and residence.

Ezra Levant is a traitor to Canada along with the Jew-controlled news media that daily uses its unwarranted power and influence to turn average Canadians into rabid Zionists and haters of the Arab people of the world. I see it happening all the time and witness otherwise decent, peace-loving Canadians suddenly go brain-dead when the subject of the Jews and the Arabs come up, all because of the daily brainwashing that they’ve received throughout their lives.

Levant facetiously states in his forked-tongue way: This is Canada — not Gaza” knowing damn well that THE WHOLE WORLD IS NOW GAZA not just Palestine and all because the Zionist Jews have been allowed to build uptheir Big Brother media network of deception and lies into a monopoly and use it to twist the minds of good, honest people who were raised up to believe that their media was independent and free and that it would give them historical truth and not fill their heads with prejudicial lies and and their hearts with hatred.

ZIONISMORWELL

Canadians and freedom-loving, peace-loving people around the world are horrified at what Israel has done to the people and the infrastructure of Gaza and they have not only a right but a duty to be outraged and to express their outrage in the most appropriate manner possible.

Given this fact I hope that as many anti-Zionist, anti-Israel people as possible will gather in Calgary on July 31st and counter this move on the part of the traitorous Jewish lobbyists and their media maniacs like Ezra Levant to shift Canadians away from true Christian values and decent morals and ethics that have served as our guiding principles for centuries, long before our governments were infiltrated by the Jewish lobbyists like B’nai Brith Canada, the former Canadian Jewish Congress and the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy who have always been pro-Zionist and Israel Firsters.

It’s time for Canadians to rise up and unite in defence of freedom and democracy and in defence of the Palestinians who are being genocided right before out eyes while the likes of Zionist Jew Ezra Levant and his Zionist media monopoly lie and deceive us with their deadly deceptive propaganda and hate.

Christian Zionism: The New Heresy that Undermines MIddle East Peace by Reverend Dr. Stephen Sizer

SizerQuote

It is my contention…that Christian Zionism is the largest, most controversial and most destructive lobby within Christianity. It bears primary responsibility for perpetuating tensions in the Middle East, justifying Israel’s apartheid colonialist agenda and for undermining the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

At least one in four American Christians surveyed recently by Christianity Today magazine said that they believe it is their biblical responsibility to support the nation of Israel. This view is known as Christian Zionism. The Pew Research Center put the figure at 63 per cent among white evangelicals. Christian Zionism is pervasive within mainline American evangelical, charismatic and independent denominations including the Assemblies of God, Pentecostals and Southern Baptists, as well as many of the independent mega-churches. It is less prevalent within the historic denominations, which show a greater respect for the work of the United Nations, support for human rights, the rule of international law and empathy with the Palestinians.

The origins of the movement can be traced to the early 19th century when a group of eccentric British Christian leaders began to lobby for Jewish restoration to Palestine as a necessary precondition for the return of Christ. The movement gained traction from the middle of the 19th century when Palestine became strategic to British, French and German colonial interests in the Middle East. Proto-Christian Zionism therefore preceded Jewish Zionism by more than 50 years. Some of Theodore Herzl’s strongest advocates were Christian clergy.

Christian Zionism as a modern theological and political movement embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism. It has become deeply detrimental to a just peace between Palestine and Israel. It propagates a worldview in which the Christian message is reduced to an ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism. In its extreme form, it places an emphasis on apocalyptic events leading to the end of history rather than living Christ’s love and justice today.

Followers of Christian Zionism are convinced that the founding of the State of Israel in 1948 and the capture of Jerusalem in 1967 were the miraculous fulfillment of God’s promises made to Abraham that he would establish Israel as a Jewish nation forever in Palestine.

Tim LaHaye’s infamous Left Behind novels, together with other End Times speculations written by authors such as Hal Lindsey, John Hagee and Pat Robertson, have sold well over 100 million copies. These are supplemented by children’s books, videos and event violent computer games.

Burgeoning Christian Zionist organizations such as the International Christian Embassy (ICEJ), Christian Friends of Israel (CFI) and Christians United for Israel (CUFI) wield considerable influence on Capitol Hill, claiming a support base in excess of 50 million true believers. This means there are now at least ten times as many Christian Zionists as Jewish Zionists. And their European cousins are no less active in the Zionist Hasbarafia, lobbying for Israel, attacking its critics and thwarting the peace process. The United States and Israel are often portrayed as Siamese twins, joined at the heart, sharing common historic, religious and political values.

Pastor John Hagee is one of the leaders of the Christian Zionist movement. He is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Church, a 19,000-member evangelical church in San Antonio, Texas. His weekly programs are broadcast on 160 TV stations, 50 radio stations and eight networks into an estimated 99 million homes in 200 countries. In 2006 he founded Christians United for Israel admitting,

“For 25 almost 26 years now, I have been pounding the evangelical community over television. The Bible is a very pro-Israel book. If a Christian admits ‘I believe the Bible,’ I can make him a pro-Israel supporter or they will have to denounce their faith. So I have the Christians over a barrel, you might say.”

In March 2007, Hagee spoke at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Policy Conference. He began by saying:

“The sleeping giant of Christian Zionism has awakened. There are 50 million Christians standing up and applauding the State of Israel…”

As the Jerusalem Post pointed out, his speech did not lack clarity. He went on to warn:

“It is 1938. Iran is Germany, and Ahmadinejad is the new Hitler. We must stop Iran’s nuclear threat and stand boldly with Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East… Think of our potential future together: 50 million evangelicals joining in common cause with 5 million Jewish people in America on behalf of Israel is a match made in heaven.”

Christian Zionist

Christian Zionists have shown varying degrees of enthusiasm for implementing six basic political convictions that arise from their ultra-literal and fundamentalist theology:

1.    The belief that the Jews remain God’s chosen people leads Christian Zionists to seek to bless Israel in material ways. However, this also invariably results in the uncritical endorsement of and justification for Israel’s racist and apartheid policies, in the media, among politicians and through solidarity tours to Israel.
2.    As God’s chosen people, the final restoration of the Jews to Israel is therefore actively encouraged, funded and facilitated through partnerships with the Jewish Agency.
3.    Eretz Israel, as delineated in scripture, from the Nile to the Euphrates, belongs exclusively to the Jewish people, therefore the land must be annexed, Palestinians driven from their homes and the illegal Jewish settlements expanded and consolidated.
4.    Jerusalem is regarded as the eternal and exclusive capital of the Jews, and cannot be shared with the Palestinians. Therefore, strategically, Christian Zionists have lobbied the US Administration to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem and thereby ensure that Jerusalem is recognised as the capital of Israel.
5.    Christian Zionists offer varying degrees of support for organisations such as the Jewish Temple Mount Faithful who are committed to destroying the Dome of the Rock and rebuilding the Jewish Temple on the Haram Al-Sharif (Noble sanctuary of Al-Aqsa).
6.    Christian Zionists invariably have a pessimistic view of the future, convinced that there will be an apocalyptic war of Armageddon in the imminent future. They are deeply sceptical of the possibility of a lasting peace between Jews and Arabs and therefore oppose the peace process. Indeed, to advocate an Israeli compromise of “land for peace” with the Palestinians is seen as a rejection of God’s promises to Israel and therefore to support her enemies.

Within the Christian Zionist worldview, Palestinians are regarded as alien residents in Israel. Many Christian Zionists are reluctant even to acknowledge Palestinians exist as a distinct people, claiming that they emigrated to Israel from surrounding Arab nations for economic reasons after Israel had become prosperous. A fear and deep-seated hatred of Islam also pervades their dualistic Manichean theology. Christian Zionists have little or no interest in the existence of indigenous Arab Christians despite their continuity with the early church.

In 2006, I drafted what became known as the Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism signed by four of the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem: His Beatitude Patriarch Michel Sabbah, Latin Patriarch, Jerusalem; Archbishop Swerios Malki Mourad, Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate, Jerusalem; Bishop Riah Abu El-Assal, Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle East; and Bishop Munib Younan, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. In it they insisted:

“We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as a false teaching that corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation.

We further reject the contemporary alliance of Christian Zionist leaders and organisations with elements in the governments of Israel and the United States that are presently imposing their unilateral pre-emptive borders and domination over Palestine. This inevitably leads to unending cycles of violence that undermine the security of all peoples of the Middle East and the rest of world.

We reject the teachings of Christian Zionism that facilitate and support these policies as they advance racial exclusivity and perpetual war rather than the gospel of universal love, redemption and reconciliation taught by Jesus Christ. Rather than condemn the world to the doom of Armageddon we call upon everyone to liberate themselves from ideologies of militarism and occupation. Instead, let them pursue the healing of the nations!

We call upon Christians in Churches on every continent to pray for the Palestinian and Israeli people, both of whom are suffering as victims of occupation and militarism. These discriminative actions are turning Palestine into impoverished ghettos surrounded by exclusive Israeli settlements. The establishment of the illegal settlements and the construction of the Separation Wall on confiscated Palestinian land undermines the viability of a Palestinian state and peace and security in the entire region.”

The patriarchs concluded, “God demands that justice be done. No enduring peace, security or reconciliation is possible without the foundation of justice. The demands of justice will not disappear. The struggle for justice must be pursued diligently and persistently but non-violently.” The prophet Micah asks, “What does the Lord require of you, to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8).

It is my contention after more than 10 years of postgraduate research that Christian Zionism is the largest, most controversial and most destructive lobby within Christianity. It bears primary responsibility for perpetuating tensions in the Middle East, justifying Israel’s apartheid colonialist agenda and for undermining the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

The closing chapter of the New Testament takes us back to the imagery of the Garden of Eden and the removal of the curse arising from the Fall: “Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb… On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.” (Revelation 22:1-2) Surely this is what Jesus had in mind when he instructed his followers to act as Ambassadors of peace and reconciliation, to work and pray that God’s kingdom would come on earth as it is in heaven.
