Cue the shouts of anti-semitism

I shudder and cringe when I hear the President use the United States and Israel in the same thought. Donald Trump covets the freedom that Bibi Netanyahu has to force, dominate, intimidate, and manipulate his neighbors who are purported to be “enemies,” existential even. It’s a leadership position featuring a hand out to the world for support but a stiff-necked and forceful refusal to look inside its own heart. But, heart isn’t a big feature of Zionism; it’s more the proclamation of “never again,” and the military power to back it up.

The white evangelical Christians who support President Trump feel a powerful kinship with Israel that borders on obsession. They are taught that unilateral support for Israel is close to the heart of God. How did we ever get to this point? They also believe there are Godly punishments for failure to support Zionist Israel. There’s also the not-so-small matter of belief in the bodily return to earth of Jesus Christ, and that it will occur in Jerusalem, the newly-minted home of the U.S. Embassy and one day the official capital of Israel.

Zionist eyes are clearly fixed on Jerusalem, and all the territory around the city, for their real target is the alAsqa Mosque, an Arab site for worship and one of the holiest places in the religions of Abraham. Right wing Jews want to rebuild the Temple of Solomon, which would mean destruction of the Mosque. This will happen. And, it will mean World War III, which will likely be nuclear. Think I’m hyping this? Please. Open your eyes.

The prize of colonialism is the resources, people, and especially the business and industry of the land being colonized. In this way, business moguls run the government, and this is especially true when the GOP is in charge. False arguments about abortion in this country disguise the reality that Supreme Court Justices aren’t nominated for their views on abortion but rather their friendliness to the business community. Why do you think Trump gave his fabulously wealthy business friends a $2 trillion welfare package described as a “tax cut” for everybody. These silk stockings run everything, and our government exists to have their backs in the global competitive business environment.

This is all fine until we drift from truth to devious manipulation. To whom was granted such a license? It begins with the use of force.

This is not going to go over well, but Rep. Ilhan Omar is right about Israel. Trump’s language at his recent North Carolina reelection rally was blatantly racist as he accused Omar of supporting terrorism, a strategy often employed by the Israelis. However, even the Anti-Defamation League — recognizing the danger to its narrative by this — condemned the language. Here’s a portion of the ADL’s Johathan Greenblatt’s statement:

While ADL has publicly disagreed with these congresswomen on some issues, the president is echoing the racist talking points of white nationalists and cynically using the Jewish people and the state of Israel as a shield to double down on his remarks. Politicizing the widespread, bipartisan support for Israel and throwing around accusations of anti-Semitism is damaging to the security of Israel and the Jewish community. He should lead by example, stop politicizing these issues and stop smearing members of Congress.

The Trump administration has a Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating anti-Semitism. Israeli hasbara agents offer their “guidance” on anti-Semitism throughout the world, including and especially social media companies, because social media allows people to directly communicate with those outside the sphere of its influence. For Israel to be Israel, it must control even minute aspects of its narrative, and that includes youTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media companies. No other country claims or is granted this right.

Here are just a few of the things Israel does in the name of guarding that narrative:

  • Israel and the United States are the aggressors in the Middle East, not the Palestinians, Arabs, or Persians.
  • Israel builds so-called settlements on land it doesn’t own in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
  • Israeli citizens are permitted to kill Palestinians at will and regardless of their activity in disputed regions.
  • Israel claims the threat against it is and always will be “existential.” This justifies any type of behavior deemed “defensive.”
  • Israel’s treatment of others is irrelevant to white American evangelicals, because a little bit of evil is considered necessary in order to usher in the return of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem.
  • Israel’s leadership — primarily Bibi Netanyahu — is held in reverential esteem by white evangelicals.
  • Israel fights against “incitement,” which begins with deciding what is or isn’t inciting.
  • Israel murders innocent people in “extrajudicial executions”. Shoot first, ask questions later.
  • Israeli murderers are honored for their courage and faithfulness.
  • Israel holds Arab parents and extended family responsible for acts of their children.
  • Israel bulldozes the homes of those families whose children perform acts the Israelis determine to be terror.
  • Israel “stink washes” entire neighborhoods to keep people in fear.
  • Israel uses middle of the night bullhorns, tear gas, flash grenades, and live ammunition to intimidate and break up public gatherings of Palestinians.
  • Israel imprisons frightened children who are permanently traumatized by such treatment.
  • Israel destroys olive trees that Palestinians have tended for generations in a clear violation of Talmudic laws.
  • Israel owns and operates the utilities that serve Palestinians and uses them to intimidate and oppress, robbing them of fresh water and electricity, especially in times of need.
  • Israel gets $10 million in aid every day (including weekends) from the U.S.
  • Israel has seized most or all of the Biblical sites in order to profit from tourism.
  • Israel launches attacks on foreign soil in the name of existential threats.
  • Israel is drifting farther to the Fascist right with each election.
  • Israel operates a propaganda machine (hasbara) that is constantly selling its narrative that its “defensive” status provides a home for threatened exiles from throughout the world going back to the Holocaust.
  • Israel celebrates the Holocaust as grounds to justify its violence towards its neighbors, who, of course, had nothing to do with the Holocaust.
  • Israel lies with impunity, because its narrative is more important than truth.
  • Israel uses Jewish ties with big media including the New York Times to manipulate and control the public narrative about its evil practices.
  • Israel doesn’t permit its allies to criticize its “defensive” practices.
  • Israel’s biggest false witness is that it is an innocent representative of democracy in the Middle East.
  • Israel rejects international law without debate.
  • Israel is home to many wonderful people, but its political system governs everything.
  • Israel reserves the right to define anti-semitism in a way that serves Zionism’s political structure.
  • Israel will be the author of its own inevitable destruction.

In their blind loyalty to Israel, white Evangelical Christians will be held accountable for these sins against humanity, and that’s not an ignorant warning. Until Christianity begins to more closely resemble Jesus, they are in serious trouble with their God. ‘Nuff said.

If the above is anti-Semitic, then you have my permission to call me an anti-Semite, which is really quite ridiculous. I’m merely a guy who sees through all this BS that enables the American business community to dominate the world, in a large part thanks to the behavior of Israel in the Middle East.

While the Democrats today seem content to press a social agenda, our business community continues to bully the rest of the world into submission, just like the colonial thinkers long ago who “discovered” the new world on behalf of their quest for new resources for creating and growing businesses.

It’s a whole lot more insidious than most people realize.
