Jewish Nazis in Israel?

A fire of hatred and persecution is raging in Arad Israel. In a town on the edge of the Negev Desert the war is no longer between Jew and Arab, but between Jew and Jew. For almost a year now a small group of Messianic Jews, Jews who believe Jesus is the Messiah, have been violently harassed by the Ger-Hasidim, an ultra-Orthodox sect originally from Poland.

The situation continues to escalate despite efforts from the secular police, from scheduled protests outside of private homes, to near riots in the street, to the burning of a chess club run by the Messianic Jews. No one seems willing or even able to control the vile hatred that is being perpetrated in the name of religion.

Polly Sigulim is a native born Israeli Jew and a widow who has taken in several orphan children from Messianic families around Israel. Two of her adopted children are teen age boys whose parents were murdered by a homicide bomber. Yet, the Gur-Hasidim protest outside her home on an almost daily basis calling her a Nazi and a harlot and claiming that she kidnaps Jewish children by the busload in order to baptize them as Christian Nazis. These are not small protests either. Recently, the police refused a permit to allow 750 protesters to meet outside her home. The Hasidic Rabbis took them to court and were told to keep their protest to a group of no more than 250.

Imagine the horror of 250 crazed people with signs condemning you as a Nazi outside your home screaming to your neighbors that you are a whore who abuses children and calling for your arrest as an enemy of your nation.

Lura and Eddie Beckford are Messianic Israeli’s who opened a small chess club for the many Russians in that community who love to play the game. Though they openly share their faith with adults in that community they are accused through constant protests of Missionizing small children, which is a crime in Israel. When they started giving away used clothing from the chess club, some of the Hasid protesters actually accused them of giving away clothes stripped from Holocaust victims. In June of this year, the chess club was destroyed by arson. The police did arrest three of the Hasidim for arson, but a judge released them on their own recognizance while they await trial. They are actively protesting and harassing their Messianic Jewish neighbors again.

Secular Jews, appalled at the violence, have called for the police to take more action. At the hearing to determine if the number of protesters could be increased to 750, one of Polly’s neighbors showed his tattoo as a Holocaust survivor and testified how ashamed he was to see Jews acting like Nazi’s.

Yet, no one will stand up to the purveyors of hatred because they are supposed to be “religious” Jews.

The Gur Hasidim are an ultra-Orthodox sect, known for the fur hats their men wear, and the ritual of shaving wives heads and forcing them to wear a Shetyl (a wig, popular with certain ultra-Orthodox sects). In the 19th century the Gur Hasidim virtually started a civil war in Poland with other Orthodox sects over the requirement of shaving a woman’s head, a tradition not found in the biblical scriptures but only in the traditions of their rabbis.

How is this different from the Christian cults? Jim Jones, David Koresh, Joseph Smith Jr., all of which replaced scripture with their own teachings and the commandments of God with their own Laws. Man seems incapable of allowing faith without the restrictions of man’s own legalism, and as a result such cults always result in hatred, persecution, and eventually death.

Orthodox Jews claim that they are striking back against Christians who have persecuted their own people for 2000 years. However, the first Christian martyr, a man named Stepahnos was stoned to death by radical Pharisees for the sin of proclaiming Jesus. Jewish law (not Gods Law) for thousands of years has proclaimed a death penalty for choosing to accept Jesus as the Messiah. That penalty is beheading for gentiles and stoning for Jews.

I thank God that most Jewish people are not followers of this dangerous and hate filled cult and that even in a predominately Jewish nation men like Polly’s neighbor can see the similarities between the Nazi hatred and the hatred of the Gur Hasidim.

Many Christians today feel a need to reach out in love to Israel and to support Israel’s right to exist as a free nation… as such they should encourage Israel to protect the basic human rights of Messianic Jews from the modern Nazi with a fur hat!

You can not love Israel until you first love your Jewish brothers and sisters in Christ. The persecution of Messianic Jews by the ultra-Orthodox must stop or Christians should withhold all support for Israel and send their money instead to Organizations who will help.

Rabertson or Jackson: Who Speaks for America?

When two self proclaimed religious leaders proclaim American Foreign Policy from opposite sides of the fence, America is the real loser. Last week Rev. Pat Robertson told a worldwide audience that the U.S. should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez because the leftist President is a threat to American security and the cost of an assassination would be far less than the cost of a war.

The White House was very quick to point out that Pat Robertson does not establish U.S. Foreign Policy and that political assignation is forbidden by Federal Law. But Pat Robertson has a long history of radical remarks that spur his detractors as well as those who reject his version of the gospel to criticism. While some were quick to ask for President Bush to openly repudiate his friend Rev. Robertson, Chavez went so far as to formally request his extradition to Venezuela for terrorism.

Two bullies, who both use words instead of fists, are standing on the street corners of world opinion challenging each other, when along comes the master manipulator, Rev. Jesse Jackson, to the intersection to make sure he is in the limelight for another of his 15 minutes of fame.
Ian James of the Guardian reported today, “Jackson, who arrived Saturday for a visit along with members of his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, cited record-high oil prices as one major reason the U.S. government should seek better relations with Venezuela, which is the world's fifth largest oil exporter and a major supplier to the U.S. market.”
Pat Robertson may have played the fool with his inappropriate remarks, but Rev. Jackson is just as foolish with his idea that we should support a totalitarian socialist state because it possesses oil. It seems to me that Religious leaders should stick to religion and leave Foreign Policy to those tasked by the Legislative and Executive branch with those responsibilities.

Pat why didn’t you organize a mission trip to Caracas to preach Jesus to the good people of Venezuela? Jessie when you met with President Chavez which scriptures did you share concerning his hope of salvation? Why do you both insist on entering into a conflict in which neither of you has a part or portion to play?

Pat Robertson does not speak for me, nor does Jessie Jackson. I presume from the nature of their rhetoric that they do not speak for Christ either. They speak for themselves, in the hope of exalting themselves in the eyes of others and in doing so further the conflict. Cursed are the peace breakers for they shall be called the children of Satan.

Just Another Racist

Always the voice of the radical left, Al Sharpton yesterday lauded Cindy Sheehan as the voice of the conscience of America.  As I read this I could not help but wonder why Brother Al would turn from God, let alone why any black man in America would so praise a racist.

What a sad day it is when David Duke, the voice of hatred and bigotry in America would sing in unison with Al Sharpton, the self appointed Pastor and protector of Black America.  This same Cindy Sheehan which the press claims is a grieving mother speaking out for the mothers of America sounds more like the national spokesperson for PLO, Hamas, and Hezbollah.

In a speech at San Francisco State University Ms. Sheehan said, "We have no Constitution. We're the only country with no checks and balances. We want our country back if we have to impeach George Bush down to the person who picks up the dog sh-t in Washington! Let George Bush send his two little party animals to die in Iraq. It's OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons but we are waging nuclear war in Iraq, we have contaminated the entire country. It's not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. Hypocrites! But Israel can occupy Palestine? Stop the slaughter!"

Since then she has claimed that she will no longer pay taxes to support a war for Israel and called the Iraqi terrorists who are assaulting our troops, FREEDOM FIGHTERS.  Well Cindy, George Bush did not kill your son, your precious freedom fighters killed him.

I know that this is supposed to be a grieving mother… but she sounds much more like an angry lunatic with a swastika on her arm.  And yet, no one in the liberal press points out this rhetoric.  No one talks about her support from David Duke.  It seems that in American politics Satan himself can bash any president who is not a card carrying communist.

Let me digress for a moment to a little history lesson.  The radical left in America today is a direct outgrowth of the American Socialist Party, which during the McCarthy era dove underground and resurfaced as a radical leftist wing within the Democratic Party.  No, I am not saying that the Democrats are communist or even socialist.  What I am saying is the radical fringe within that party does tend to employ the same social engineering mindset as Marxism, “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need.”

The far right, in particular, Christian Identity and the KKK, result from the same racist inspiration of Nazism, which is founded on the idea of racial purity and the supremacy of the Aryan (White) race.  Both extremes hate America because it is a land formed on the principle of equality and liberty for all.

The scriptures are clear that God will bless those that bless Israel and curse those which curse Israel.  Rev. Sharpton, if you are a man of God as you claim you are you will divorce yourself from this racist “Mother Nazi” and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  If you will not then you are not my brother, but the ultimate hypocrite: A black minister who speaks for equality for the black man and persecution of the Jew.  JAR – Just Another Racist!

Wherewith Art Thou Saved?

Everywhere you look within the body of Messiah is strife and controversy. Sometimes that strife is masked in denominationalism. Baptists who believe once saved always saved (OSAS) verses Methodists who believe in a free will choice to believe or not, have been fighting for hundreds of years. Within our own movement the struggle is often over whether gentiles need to observe Torah, or whether Kabbalah should be studied by believers.

For every doctrine posed to humanity there is dispute and dispute leads to strife.

And therein lies the core problem which faces the body. It has become schizophrenic. Loosing it center and it focus the whole assembly… from conventional Christianity to Messianic Judaism has become a cluster of squabbling denominations.

I have said many times that denominations are just nations of demons! We have had 2000 years of arguing over doctrine and still base our doctrines on majority rule. Tertullian won out over Arius and he was branded a heretic (Anathema)… but yet his doctrine survives today… many people in the Messianic movement base their entire faith on the idea that Y’shua could not possibly be G-d in the flesh.

Jesuits burnt Protestants at the stake for defying the doctrines of Rome. Messianics walk into Christian churches and call them all pagans. Even within Judaism, Orthodox Jews condemn Reform Jews as leaving the faith.

I am convinced that this is why the fastest growing religion in western civilization is denial of faith… aka Atheism or Agnosticism. BECAUSE WE ARE SCARING THE WILD SHEEP AWAY WITH OUR FOOLISHNESS!

Every man has a doctrine… and to be honest doctrine is not bad. Doctrine defines what we believe. It is important that our doctrine be defined scripturally, that is be sound, and that it edifies our faith. But when we replace our faith with our doctrine, we cease to be people of faith in Messiah and become instead followers of doctrine.

doc·trine (dŏk'trĭn)n.

  1. A principle or body of principles presented for acceptance or belief, as by a religious, political, scientific, or philosophic group; dogma.

  2. A rule or principle of law, especially when established by precedent.

  3. A statement of official government policy, especially in foreign affairs and military strategy.

  4. Archaic. Something taught; a teaching.
[Middle English, from Old French, from Latin doctrīna, from doctor, teacher.]

I find it interesting that the “archaic” definition of doctrine is a teaching. What once started as a teaching, hopefully led by the Ruach, has for many evolved into a rule of law. Traditional Christians actually have the doctrine that they are freed from the LAW… so having sensed their freedom that have created a new law that defines them as free from the law. So having no law they make the lack of law a law unto itself.

There is nothing wrong with teaching… let me reiterate this… THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH TEACHING THE GOSPEL. But then that is the problem? Is OSAS the gospel? Is KJV Only the gospel? Is Kabbllah for believers the gospel? Is Lunar Shabbat the gospel? Is the sacred name the gospel? Is the name Y’shua the gospel? Is keeping Kosher the gospel? Shall I continue and make this the longest blog entry on earth or…

The gospel (good news) is: You don’t have to justify yourself to G-d, G-d justified himself to you.

The good news is Y’shua died for you. All the rest is the foolishness of men.

I can hear the doctrimanics mumbling at this already… you need doctrine to define your faith they will say. What is your faith in? Are you saved by OSAS or by the KJV? Are you saved by your belief in Kaballah? How did Kaballah save you?

The essence of faith is Y’shua. If you have other ideas about doctrine and how important it is to wear tzitzit, tie teffelin, take communion, keep Christmas, keep Shabbat on the 7th day/1st day/every day/lunar cycle (insert your own doctrine here). Go ahead and teach it, more importantly back it up with scripture. I will listen to your idea and test it by scripture. But if you choose to condemn me, call me reprobate, accuse me of being gay/a womanizer/a fool/evil/a drunkard/a fornicator/or a child abuser because I don’t agree with your doctrine. Then it doesn’t matter in the least what your doctrine is. You are unsaved. You have made your doctrine your salvation and want everyone else to be saved by your doctrine.

G-d gave his only-begotten Son for you and you have chosen to follow your pet doctrine instead of the provision of salvation.

The Rasha one is not impressed and neither is my Father… take your pet doctrine and your denomination, which so often is a denomination of one and please stop pretending to be a teacher in Y’israel. I’m glad that the Most High G-d put men like me in your path to keep you from stealing HIS sheep. Call me evil if you want, for such accusations the Pharisees, the doctrimaniacs of first century Judea, railed against the L-rd of life.

There is only one name, one idea, one doctrine (teaching) under heaven given amongst men by which we MUST be saved.

Fear Not

“Dateline: September 1, 2007

The US Army and civilian policemen completed the disengagement from Texas today complying with President Fernando Mendez’s request not to destroy the infrastructure of Mexico’s northernmost province.  The last holdout of radical right wing fanatics were dragged kicking and screaming from the Alamo at 11:30 PM last night after being subdued with 3 hours of concentrated tear gas.

President Hillary Clinton, this morning, praised the military for successfully completing this arduous but necessary task with a minimal loss of life and destruction of Mexican property and called for all Americans to pray for the peace and reconciliation of our nation as we enter into this new era of peace with Mexico.  President Clinton also reiterated her vow that this gesture of peace ensures that we will not need to disengage from New Mexico, Arizona, or California, though she is considering the UN mandate to return Florida to Cuban control.”

So you think this is a total fantasy of a rambling blue man?  What would you have said a year ago if I had suggested Ariel Sharon would return Gaza to the PLO?

These are strange times we live in, and yet, they are but the beginning of sorrows.  The world will get much worse before the end comes.  Foolishness will abound and man’s terror to man increase as the depravity of man’s system waxes to fullness.

Y’shua warned that it would be as the days of Noach before he returned.  In that day every man did as was right in his own eyes,  Nephelim consumed the flesh of humanity and fought senseless bloody wars against themselves.  While this is only hinted at in canonical history, there is enough evidence from non-traditional sources to support the biblical contention that it was really, REALLY BAD.

Are you ready for what is probably coming?  I mean READY!  When the Gestapo knocks on your door what are you going to do?

It’s so easy to be consumed by fear when all around you is chaos.  It is easy to strike back… Yes, you can pour acid on the troops below the roof of your synagogue, but they will still sweep you into their cage.  You can form a militia to defend your land, your rights, your home, but you will not be able to stand against an army which can summon forth air strikes and tanks.  You can hide in a cave with all your family and friends, but the modern juggernauts will hunt you out for their consumption.  In the end game of this world, there will be no escape from evil, except that which the Most High G-d has provided.

To live is Moshiach, to die is gain!  Rav Sha’ul said that almost 1900 years ago… just before they disconnected his head from his body.  One sharp pain in the neck and then GLORY unimaginable.  We need to stop fearing what man can do to us and fear him who is able to cast us into true despair and separation.

My word to the Body of Messiah today is this… FEAR NOT for I am with you sayeth the L-rd.  If ye walk in fear then ye are not in faith.  The worse they can do is kill you, and if you are his, you will not ever truly die.

Proclaim Y’shua until they remove your head from your shoulders and you will hear the refrain, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

An Apology to Israel

From Reuters News Service on Thursday 8/18:
CRAWFORD, Texas - The White House on Thursday praised Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip as a bold move that will strengthen ties between Israel and the United States.

As an American Jew, I wish to apologize to my Israeli Chaverim for the anti-Semitic actions and views of my President and his cabinet.

Were it possible Mr. President I would take back my vote for you in the last election.  It is time for America to form a Christian Right Party no matter what the effect is on the Republican party.  Any nation, any person, who will not bless the seed of Avraham will be cursed by Almighty G-d.

Israel belongs to the Jews only… it is the land of promise.  There is nothing more I can say.

The Real Agenda of Cindy Sheehan

I don't often get political. For years now I have said I have no King but Messiah, even so Bo Adonai Y'shua. In a recent discussion I blasted President George W. Bush, who I voted for unabashedly, for his part in encouraging the madness of the disengagement. But today I must put the shoe on the other foot.

The current darling of the liberal press is one Ms. Cindy Sheehan, who is camped outside the Bush ranch in Crawford TX with an enclave of grey hair pony tailed ex-Vietnam war protestors from San Francisco. The press reports every day how poor Ms. Sheehan, who lost her son in the Iraq war, pleads for the right to address her concerns with President Bush. Be still my bleeding heart.

From the reports in the media it is difficult to fathom why the President would not meet with such a grieving mother, simply for the PR benefits and common decency. Perhaps he knows something we do not.

Things are not always as they appear. HaSatan appears as an angel of light, and Ms. Sheehan appears as a grieving mother... until one investigates her history. Cindy Sheenan has met with the President before on this issue, even the media has fairly reported that. What they fail to tell us is that in between that meeting and today Ms. Sheehan has made many public comments that reveal her real motivation.

In a speech given in 2004 at San Francisco State University (SFSU) Cindy Sheehan went into an anti-American anti-Israel tirade that sounds more like a white supremacist than a grieving mother:

"We have no Constitution. We're the only country with no checks and balances. We want our country back if we have to impeach George Bush down to the person who picks up the dog sh-t in Washington! Let George Bush send his two little party animals to die in Iraq. It's OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons but we are waging nuclear war in Iraq, we have contaminated the entire country. It's not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. Hypocrites! But Israel can occupy Palestine? Stop the slaughter!"

I don't think that requires much analysis to be honest... but, "We have no constitution", "no checks and balances"? Come now Cindy... the checks and balances protected your Bill Clinton from impeachment, but you would remove those checks in your fervor to rid this nation of G.W. Bush? And why would that be Cindy, could it be because he supports Israel?

Her words are bad enough but they only portray the vile and sinister motives of her heart. Her associations are far more revealing. Her co-speaker at this same speech was Lawyer Lynn Stewart who she introduced as her Atticus Finch to the audience. Should the reference escape you, Atticus Finch is the lawyer who defended an innocent Black man in the book, "To Kill a Mockingbird" (required reading when I was in High School!) Ms. Stewart is a convicted Terrorist-Supporter who passed Fatwas from her client Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind sheik responsible for the first WTC bombing.

Why would even the most flaming of liberals align herself with the enemies of America, unless of course they were an enemy of America.

I have been watching the news reports very careful to see if another member of her modern entourage at Crawford would be revealed. So far I have caught glimpses of him standing behind Cindy in photos and at least one video. But the news media seems determined not to point him out or record when he speaks. Who is this mystery man? David Duke, himself!

Now this raises a serious concern... why would the extreme left be aligned with the extreme right in any cause? Because both are extremists and both are determined to destroy Israel at any cost. HaSatan has been trying to destroy us from day one... Pharaoh, Haman, Antiochus, Titus, Constantine, Hitler, Duke... shall we add Sheenan to his list of puppets?

Duke, however, unlike Ms. Sheehan does not veil his antisemitism... it is his defining quality, he wrote recently on "Cindy Sheehan has a lot to be angry about. Her son was betrayed and his life lost by government officials who treasonably created and continue a war for Israel and the Jewish supremacist agenda rather than that of the United States."

It looks like politics, it smells like politics... but it is not the politics of man... it is heavenly politics... and attempt by haSatan to further humanities hatred of G-d and his people.

"We battle not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places" Rabbi Sha'ul circa 65 CE

Nothing has changed and it will not change until Moshiach Y'shua sets on his throne... Bo Adonai Y'shua

Only One Way to Fight a War

It is difficult for an American Jew to undestand Israeli politics for a number of reasons.

First, we are not there. Insane murderers are not seducing their children to blow themselves up in our back yard. We do not live in communities with barbed wire fences and watch towers. We are not surrounded by enemies sworn to the elimination of the Jewish people.

Secondly, we enjoy some modicum of freedom of speech. An IDF Rabbi (Chaplain) was recently stripped to the rank of private and imprisoned for 4 1/2 months for daring to suggest to the troops that participation in Sharon's disengagement plan violates Torah.

As Americans we are a blessed people. I know it does not seem that way at times, flaming homosexuals march our streets proclaiming their rights to enter into unholy matrimony and that right to reproduce by turning our children away into their abomination. It does not seem than way when liberal communists want to shut down Christian schools or persecute Christians who wish to pray in public.

Sometimes it seems worse when you are a Messianic Jew. Your own family will disown you. Your community condemns you as a missionary out to steal Jewish souls, and the Christians condemn you as a Judaizer trying to destroy their own faith in all those lovely Roman customs they practice.

Sometimes I get disenchanted with it all. That's an easy trap to fall into. Elijah mere days after calling down fire from heaven to devour the prophets of Baal, sat under a juniper tree and cried out to G-d for death. But then if you look at the rest of this world, you will see how wonderfully blessed you are.

The gestapo is not visiting your town this week. The army is not trying to evict you to give your home to some uneducated terrorist. Little Abdul from the town down the road is not visiting your children's school with a knapsack full of C4. YET!

The price of peace is vigilance. The cost of freedom is determination.

I commend my Jewish brethren in Gaza and the West Bank for standing firm in the midst of madness. I guess it is fortunate that the blue man is not in eretz. I would not attack my brethren in the IDF, who are there following the orders of a wicked and foolish Knesset. I would teach the Palestinians the meaning of Terror.

These lands are not occupied. They were liberated as the IDF fought back against a viscious attack designed to wipe out all Israel. How would Sharon react if the brave men, women, and children were to march out of their soon to be lost homes in mass and marched to the south with blood cries on their lips... to carry out haShem's original command to clean the land of promise of these modern descendants of Caanan. Would their be Barak's amongst the IDF who would join them with enough firepower to show the arrogant Arabs what a real jihad is.

I would call Sharon's poker hand of land for peace and raise the bet to death for peace... till every Arab is driven out of the Land of Israel. Aren't you glad I am in America?
