(i.e., Babylon the Great) makes one also an enemy of God]

PREFACE

I have been accused by many of my opponents of having a bias against Israel in that I have no reluctance in exposing the CRIMES of the Jewish state, especially as those CRIMES relate to her slavish support of the American New World Order System - CRIMES that are so monstrous that even as early as 1984, Jewish writer Y. Karny was forced to exclaim in Yediot Aharonot:

"Today, one would be hard pressed to find five countries in the world which support the [dictatorial, blood-thirsty] Salvadoran regime [in Central America]. The United States under Ronald Reagan is at the head of the list of supporters. In this 'honorable' company, one can find Guatemala, a huge concentration camp masquerading as a state [under the headship of Rios Montt, a devil masquerading as a Christian]; ONE CAN ALSO FIND THE STATE OF ISRAEL." [For a list of those crimes Israel has involved herself in on behalf of the American Empire, please see our article, "Israel: In that Day there Shall Stand up a Root of Jesse that Shall Be an Ensign for the People;" please also see Part 2 in our series on the Tribulation, "Preparing Israel to Give Testimony."]

NOTE: That this slavish relationship that Israel has bound herself to insofar as the US is concerned is an ABOMINATION unto the Lord is made plain by the title God gives it:

"... your [meaning Israel's) COVENANT WITH DEATH ["Death" meaning the US] ... and your AGREEMENT WITH HELL ["Hell" meaning the US] ..." (Isaiah 28:18) Please see part 6 of Chapter XV of the New Antipas Papers, "Israel's Agreement with Hell."]

Ark of the Covenant

Many of those responsible for "pushing" Israel into this nauseous alliance with the United States believe that they are acting in the interest of the Jewish state - idiots and dimwits such as Pastor John Hagee, Rod Parsley, Rick Joyner, C. Peter Wagner, Derek Prince, the ICEJ, CUFI, ad nauseum, ad infinitum (all people and organizations recommended directly and/or indirectly by Richard Paradise at News Tracts); BUT THEY ARE NOT ACTING IN THE INTEREST OF THE JEWISH STATE! They are making the same mistake that Uzzah made when David went to bring up the Ark of the Covenant from the house of Abinadab to Jerusalem. The story of Uzzah is recounted in 2 Samuel:

"And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims.

"And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.

"And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab which was at Gibeah, accompanying the ark of God: and Ahio went before the ark.

"And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.

"And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it.

"And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God." (II Samuel 6:1-7)

Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. "And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God."


"And they of Beth-shemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

What happened here was this: NO ONE save the High Priest was allowed to touch the ark or gaze upon its contents FOR ANY REASON; indeed, not less than twenty years previously, the men of Beth-shemesh had received the ark from the Philistines (where it had been held captive for some time), and they made the mistake of opening the Ark and gazing on its contents; the story is as follows:

"And they of Beth-shemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

"And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Beth-shemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the LORD ..."

And here they made a great mistake: In their excitement, they handled the Ark, and opened it!

"And he [i.e., God] smote the men of Beth-shemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

"And the men of Beth-shemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy LORD God? and to whom shall he go up from us?" (1 Samuel 6:13-20)

Obviously, then, Uzzah should have known not to touch the Ark - the testimony of over 50,000 killed for making the same mistake should have had some impact on his thinking. Nonetheless -

"David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzzah [i.e., had killed him]: and he called the name of the place Perez-uzzah to this day.

"And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and said, How shall the ark of the LORD come to me?

"So David would not remove the ark of the LORD unto him into the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.

"And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obed-edom, and all his household ..."

Very obviously, the impact of what had happened to the men of Beth-shemesh had had very little impact on David's thinking - after all, all Uzzah was trying to do was to steady the Ark so it wouldn't fall to the ground. Uzzah believed that he was "doing service for God" - just like those who are "pushing" Israel into a defense pact with the United States.

But God doesn't need our help in that way; what he needs is our obedience - AND VERY PLAINLY GOD HAD ISSUED AN EDICT THAT NO ONE WAS TO TOUCH THE ARK. This lesson was finally made plain to David; but the lesson had cost the lives of Uzzah and over 50,000 men in Beth-shemesh.

The story continues:

David danced before the Lord

"... And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with gladness.

"And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.

"And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

"So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. (II Samuel 6:2-15)

The Ark reaches Jerusalem - at the cost of many, many lives.

The lesson in all of this is a simple one: God does NOT need America's help in defending His people, Israel; to say otherwise is to believe that God must rely on His enemy, BABYLON THE GREAT, to defend His Heritage.

Those who think that by pushing Israel into an alliance with the United States "they are doing service for God" - and I speak here of both Jews and Christians - are making the same mistake that Uzzah and the men of Beth-shemesh made - and they will pay the same price!!

INTRODUCTION

The Bible indicates that in the "Latter Days" Israel will be seduced into making an alliance with God's enemy, Babylon the Great; and Christians - especially American Christians - will bear a heavy responsibility in enticing Israel into this alliance; specifically, it says:

"And he [i.e., the "King of Babylon" - again, please see our article, "In Search of Babylon; What do the Scriptures Say?"] shall confirm the covenant with many [Israel] for one week [seven years]: and in the midst of the week [after three and a half years] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (Dan. 9:27a) [Please see Chapter IX in the New Antipas Papers, "The Course and Character of the Last Days."]

The living Bible translates this passage thus:

"This king ["Anti-Christ, King of Babylon"] will make a seven year TREATY with the people [Israel], but after half that time, he will break his pledge and stop the Jews from all their sacrifices and their offerings; then as a climax to all his terrible deeds, the enemy [Antichrist] shall utterly defile the sanctuary of God [which is to say, he shall commit the Abomination of Desolation]." (Daniel 9:27a LB)

J. Dwight Pentecost writes:

"According to Daniel 9:26-27 the prince of the Roman empire (i.e., the West, called Babylon) will make a covenant with Israel for a seven year period. This covenant evidently ... guarantees Israel's integrity [is a defense pact] ... [and] also is a Satanic imitation of the fulfillment of the Abrahamic covenant which ... [guaranteed] Israel title deed to the land. This action is pictured by John [in the Apocalypse] (Rev. 16:2) as a rider going forth to conquer [as the first horseman in the Apocalypse] ... This condition exists for three and one-half years, after which the covenant is broken by the ... [Antichrist]."

A DEFENSE PACT

The treaty will be in the form of a defense pact between Israel and Prophetic Babylon (i.e., the United States) and will be directed against Israel's enemies - again, no doubt a coalition of Islamic fundamentalist states in the Middle East. One of the most eminent scholars on "Last Things," Sir Robert Anderson, says that the signing of this treaty will signify the beginning of the Seventieth Week - i.e., the "Tribulation Period!" Anderson writes:

"... the Seventieth Week [the seven year period of the Tribulation] will be a definite period of time, of which the beginning, the middle, and the end are definitely marked [by certain well defined events]. [Just as the beginning of the first sixty-nine weeks were signified] ... not by the return of the Jews from Babylon, nor yet by the rebuilding of their Temple, but by the SIGNING OF THE PERSIAN DECREE [TREATY] which restored ... [them], so also the beginning of the Seventieth Week will date not from their restoration to Judea [May 14, 1948], nor yet from the future rebuilding of their shrine, but from the SIGNING OF THE [DEFENSE] TREATY BY THE COMING PRINCE [ANTICHRIST]."

Press image to enlarge it.

The Bible refers to Israel's defense pact with Babylon the Great as -

"... your [meaning Israel's) COVENANT WITH DEATH ... and your AGREEMENT WITH HELL ..." (Isaiah 28:18)

And it goes on to warn the Jewish people that they will live to rue the day that they ever entered into such an agreement:

"... your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the OVERFLOWING SCOURGE shall pass through, THEN YE SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN BY IT." (Is. 28:18) [Please see our article, "In Search of Babylon: What Do the Scriptures Say;" please also see, Chapter XII of the New Antipas Papers, "The Beast of Revelation 17."]

HEAVY STUFF

Now stop for a moment and consider the appalling and even damning insinuations behind the titles God gives to this treaty:

  • Your COVENANT WITH DEATH !

And -

  • Your AGREEMENT WITH HELL !

This is, to put it in the vernacular, "HEAVY STUFF."

It's in the light of this that one should ask himself, What's that say about those whom God catches pushing this treaty on Israel? It's not without reason that Jesus said,

"Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; BUT WOE TO THAT MAN BY WHOM THE OFFENCE COMETH!" (Matthew 18:7)

In other words, Woe unto Israel because of this treaty, BUT WOE UNTO THOSE WHO ARE FOUND SEDUCING ISRAEL INTO MAKING IT.

And so I ask again, What's that say about Richard Paradise and people like him who associate themselves with those who are pushing this alliance, as he is so plainly doing on his NEWS TRACT website. [Please see our article, "A Little Leaven Leavens the Whole Lump."]

Obama as the Twelfth Imam [For information on the Twelfth Imam, please see our article, "Mene, Mene Tekel Upharsin."]

CUFI & THE ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST

A significant aspect behind the effort to link the US and Israel in a defense pact is the fiction that Antichrist will emerge from out of the Islamic nations that are presently resisting America's encroachment into the Middle East and Central Asia. At the heart of this fabrication is the absurd notion that Barack Obama is a secret Muslim who will emerge soon as the Islamic Antichrist.

Moreover, one should take note of the fact that this idea is no fringe notion; the fact is, it permeates the thinking of many of those at Liberty University (the largest evangelical university in the world) and the thinking of such "biggies" as Adrian Rogers, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention and C. Peter Wagner, heard of the New Apostolic Reformation. [Please see our recent banner article, "Obama Seeks to Become Global Dictator."]

The creation of the OBAMA-AS-ANTICHRIST myth originated in the Neo-Con / Christian political alliance that formed in late 2007 and 2008 to oppose the election of Obama as president of the United States; at the center of this nexus was (is) an organization known as CUFI (Christians United for Israel) formed in 2006 by Pastor John Hagee of the giant Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. [Please see our article, "Apostasy: Christianity in the Service of a Religio-Political-Corporate-Terrorist State."]

CUFI is an American pro-Israel Christian organization that defines itself as "a national grassroots [political] movement focused on the support of Israel." It is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States.

Pastor John Hagee preaching at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, TX. Christian pollster George Barna recently reported that Hagee is ranked in the top 10 spokesmen for Christianity among Pentecostals.

Pastor George Morrison & Faith Bible Chapel in Arvada, Colorado

Hagee is generally recognized as the leader of those evangelical Christians in the United States who are advocating for a defense pact between Israel and the United States. Pastor George Morrison of Arvada, Colorado, who has been friends with Hagee for more than 20 years and whose ministry has likewise "always seen Israel in God's plan for the future," says that Hagee -

"Has proven himself a spiritual leader in the country. And he has the platform, his TV ministry and the great respect of a lot of other leaders; so certainly, he's in a position of spiritual leadership and authority to lead the evangelical churches and help unite them [in defense of Israel]"

NOTE: Along with friends like Bennie Hinn, Joyce Meyer and Rod Parsley, Hagee has come under fire for excessive compensation derived from his nonprofit ministries. According to his organization's tax returns, Hagee has earned more than $1 million annually since 1999 in salary and deferred compensation from his nonprofit Global Evangelism Television and Cornerstone Church. In 2004, the San Antonio News Express reported that he was the highest-paid nonprofit executive in that city; his pay was nearly twice that of the next best-paid executive. Hagee's ministry follows the "Word of Faith" theology pioneered by Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Copeland, etc. - a Pentecostal movement based on the "power of the spoken word" to claim one's "material" desires. One of the central tenets of the movement is the notion that "sowing a seed" -- i.e., contributing to the ministry -- will result in the donor's "harvest" of PERSONAL prosperity. [Please see our article, "The Superman Theology of the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles" for a description of the eschatology animating Hagee and his allies;" please also see our articles, "The Obermenschen (Supermen) of Kenneth Hagin, Bennie Hinn, and John Wimber," "The God-Men of America's New World Order System," "Luciferic Christianity" and "Today's Church: Making Zombies out of Christians" for a more in-depth analysis of the "Word of Faith" movement.]

CUFI IS THE CHRISTIAN COUNTER-PART TO AIPAC,
(THE AMERICAN ISRAEL PUBLIC AFFAIRS COMMITTEE)

In essence, CUFI is the Christian counterpart of the "American Israel Public Affairs Committee" (AIPAC), a Jewish / Israeli organization with which CUFI closely coordinates its activities.


NOTE: The CUFI board of directors includes the former Republican presidential candidate and religious right activist Gary Bauer and George Morrison, pastor of the 8,000-member Faith Bible Chapel in Arvada, Colorado, and chairman of the board of Promise Keepers. Rod Parsley, the Ohio televangelist who is rapidly becoming a major political figure in the Christian right, signed on as a regional director. Among CUFI's other supporters are nationally syndicated Christian right talk show host Janet Parshall, who serves on its board of advisers, and Ron Wexler, an Orthodox Jew and president of the theocratic Ten Commandments Commission, which has the backing of nearly every prominent conservative evangelical in the country. Many popular TBN televangelists, among them Benny Hinn and the best-selling author of self-improvement books, Joyce Meyer, have also offered their support. Meyer was named one of the country's 25 most influential evangelicals in an oft-cited 2005 Time Magazine article -- as was Stephen Strang, CEO of Strang Communications. David Brog, a former chief of staff to Senator Arlen Specter, the Pennsylvania Republican, serves on CUFI's board of advisers. Standing With Israel, his book urging Jews to embrace the support of evangelical Christians, has just been published by Strang.

Hagee has written in Jerusalem Countdown that what's going on in the Middle East today -

" ... is all about the end of days and how nuclear war with Iran will ignite it."

IT IS THE BELIEF OF CUFI MEMBERS THAT THE WORLD IS ON THE VERGE OF ARMAGEDDON, a war in which Israel (possibly in alliance with the United States - that is, if Hagee and CUFI have anything to do with it) will defeat the forces of anti-Christ which will then be centered around the European Union - at least according to CUFI members.

NOTE: One has to wonder how Obama will emerge as the leader of the European Community. One can only imagine the twisted scenarios that are at work here; I suppose that it has something to do with Obama taking over the UN. But then, one has to ask, How does the US extricate herself from this whirling mish-mash of alliances so she can be found fighting for Israel at Armageddon? The scenarios here are so twisted that they cannot help but "bump up" against one another and create a confusion that is impossible to unwind.

And there is more: Hagee and his allies erroneously blend Armageddon with the Gog / Magog War; that there exists, however, a clear distinction between the Gog/Magog War (which will occur at the beginning of the Tribulation Period) and Armageddon (which will occur at the end of the Tribulation Period) there can be no doubt! As J. Dwight Pentecost has pointed out, there are a number of considerations which make it very plain that we are dealing with two great wars rather than one during the Tribulation. In the Gog/Magog War, definite allies of Gog are mentioned as opposing Israel - "Magog," "Mescheck," "Tubal," "Gomer" (TURKEY), Ethiopia, Libya, (see Ezekiel 38) and EGYPT (see Daniel 11:42], while at Armageddon all nations are engaged against Jerusalem (Joel 3:2; Zeph. 3:8; Zech. 12:3; and 14:2).

  • Gog comes from the North (Ezek. 38:6, 15), while at Armageddon, the armies come from out of the whole earth.

  • Gog is the head of the armies at his invasion (Ezek. 38:15), but at Armageddon, the Beast is at the head of the invasion (Rev. 19:19).

  • There is a protest against Gog's invasion (Ezek. 38:13), but at Armageddon there is no such protest because all the nations of the earth have joined themselves with the Beast in his attack against Jerusalem.

  • Gog is overthrown by divine intervention through the convolutions of nature (Ezek. 38:22), but the armies at Armageddon are destroyed by the sword which goes out of Christ's mouth (Rev. 19:15).

  • Gog's armies array themselves in the open fields (Ezek. 39:5), while at Armageddon they are seen in the city of Jerusalem.

  • Gog's armies are destroyed outside of Jerusalem on the mountains and in the valleys (Ezek. 39:2-4), while the Beast and his armies are destroyed in the city of Jerusalem itself (Zech. 12:2; 14:2).

  • The Lord calls for assistance in executing judgment on Gog (Ezek. 38:21), while at Armageddon He is viewed as treading the winepress alone (Rev. 19:15; Isaiah 63:3-6).

  • The invasion by Gog will be sudden and will come with relatively little warning (Ezek. 38:11), while Armageddon will be no sudden and unexpected event.

Thus, as Dwight Pentecost has suggested,

"Two diverse movements (wars) must be acknowledged." [Please see Part 4 of Chapter XV of the New Antipas Papers, "Differentiating between the Gog / Magog War and Armageddon."]

CUFI AS THE "STALKING HORSE" FOR THE
NEO-CONS' GRAB FOR THE OIL OF THE MIDDLE EAST

Christians selling themselves out as prostitutes to Wall Street

CUFI, however, would be zilch if it were not for the money and media access (especially from FOX NEWS) that it receives from its Neo-Con allies.

In this respect, it is not too much to say that CUFI is nothing more than a religious "Stalking Horse" for their secularist Neo-Con allies and their concomitant effort to gain public support for America's grab for the oil riches of the Middle East and Central Asia, thus insuring American economic and military preponderance in the world at large into the foreseeable future. It's in the light of this that one can speak of Christians prostituting themselves out to the business elites of Wall Street.



NOTE: Rupert Murdoch, the owner of FOX NEWS, and Roger Ailes, the Chairman and CEO of FOX NEWS, are both "card-carrying" members of the Neo-Con nexus.


A "Stalking Horse" is a person (In this case, an organization - i.e., CUFI) who tests a concept with someone or mounts a challenge against them on behalf of an anonymous third party (in this case, the Neo-Cons). If the idea proves viable and/or popular, the anonymous figure can then declare their interest and advance the concept with little risk of failure. If the concept fails, the anonymous party will not be tainted by association and can either drop the idea completely or bide their time and wait until a better moment for launching an attack.

CUFI, then, is the "PUBLIC-FACE" of a somewhat secretive coalition of American business and oil elites WHO HAVE GATHERED THEMSELVES AROUND THE AMERICAN NEO-CONS, and who are DEDICATED TO INSTIGATING A WAR OF EXTERMINATION AGAINST IRAN IN ORDER TO GRAB THE OIL RICHES OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

MOREOVER, CUFI IS DEVOTED TO "SLIMMING" ANYONE WHO STANDS IN ITS WAY WITH REGARD TO THIS MATTER: THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT CUFI IS DOING INSOFAR AS BARACK OBAMA - WHO THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT BELIEVES IS WILLING TO "ACCOMMODATE" IRAN - IS CONCERNED.

IT'S HERE THAT ED LASKY AND THE AMERICAN THINKER COME IN.

ED LASKY AND THE AMERICAN THINKER

Lasky is a "card-carrying" member of CUFI and is the "GO-TO" boy for the neo-cons in their effort to ramp the Religious Right up into a holy crusade against Islam. He has been charged (as it were) in painting the Muslim community as an "ENEMY ABSOLUTE" THAT SHOULD BE EXTERMINATED IN THE SAME MANNER ONE WOULD EXTERMINATE A NEST OF SNAKES. [Please see our article, "Hardening Our Hearts Against God: Becoming a Prisoner of a Pathology of Hate" and "Radical Islam;" please also see chapter XV of the New Antipas Papers, "The Gog/Magog War."]

Ed Lasky and his publication, The American Thinker

He sits like a spider in the center of a web dedicated to ensnaring Obama as a "secret" Muslim and tying him to the so-called "Worldwide Islamic Conspiracy" to take over the world.

NOTE: According to Netlore Archive, there are a number of variants of the smear that Obama is a Muslim; interestingly, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency traced the many variants of this smear (i.e., the OBAMA-AS-ANTICHRIST slur) back to Tel Aviv where it disappeared into the "ether-sphere" of the Neo-Con / Christian alliance and a third organization known as the IFCJ (The International Fellowship of Christian and Jews), a creation of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein.

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein deserves much of the credit for the alliance forged by right-wing Israelis and American Jews with Christian evangelicals. He has created his very own Mission to the Evangelicals. The difference being that Eckstein doesn't want to make them Jews. He wants to make them Christian Zionists and he wants to use their money to support the Greater Land of Israel phenomenon represented by the settler movement. VERY OBVIOUSLY, THEN ECKSTEIN AND HIS JEWISH COMPATRIOTS ARE INTEGRAL MEMBERS OF THE CHRISTIAN / NEO-CON ALLIANCE, AND SO ONE WOULD NOT BE REMISS IN REFERRING TO THIS ALLIANCE AS THE CHRISTIAN / NEO-CON / JEWISH ALLIANCE. Very obviously, this makes these Jews partners with the evangelicals in "pushing" Israel into a defense pact with the US.

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein's International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) is an integral part of the anti-Obama nexus. The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews was founded in 1983 by Eckstein to "promote understanding and cooperation between Jews and Christians and to build broad support for Israel and other shared concerns."

The organization is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, which had revenue of $50 MILLION in 2005. It has offices in Chicago and Jerusalem. One of its main aims is to promote Israeli settlement on the so-called West Bank, including - eventually - what Eckstein calls "Greater Israel."

GREATER ISRAEL

Some Arabists insist that the covenant regarding this land was given to Abraham and his descendants, which include not just the Jews, the sons of Isaac, but also the Arabs, the sons of Ishmael. (Genesis 15:18) Expansionist Jews and some Christians reject this thesis and insist that the promise is to the sons of Isaac exclusively. Other definitions of the "Promised Land" are found in Numbers 34:1-15 and Ezekiel 47:13-20 and describe a smaller area.

Getting back to the OBAMA-AS-ANTICHRIST myth which all three elements of this Evangelical / Neo-Con / Jewish alliance are "pushing," the various fabrications of this myth revolve around the following themes:

"Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (a black Muslim) of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya, and Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas (a white atheist). When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced and his father returned to Kenya. His mother married Lolo Soetoro -- another radical Muslim -- moving to Jakarta with Obama when he was six years old. Obama spent his school years in Jakarta imbibing Wahabbism - the most radical form of Islamic extremism. Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim, mitigating that damning information by saying that, for two years, he also attended a Catholic school."

A part of this myth involves the fabrication that Obama took the oath of office not on the Bible, but on the Koran.

Barack Obama's Muslim school in Jakarta; Obama with his classmates. There exists no records that Obama's school in Indonesia taught Wahabism.


Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., Ann Dunham and Lolo Soetoro; neither Obama Senior nor Soetoro were radical Muslims; indeed, both were socialists who took their religion superficially at best.

All of these charges, however, are lies. The fact is, Obama used the family Bible when he was sworn into office (see photo to the right), and the school he attended in Jakarta was a public school, not an Islamic one; furthermore, neither his father nor his step-father were practicing Muslims.

NOW ONE NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND JUST HOW SERIOUS THIS CHARGE IS (i.e., that Obama is a furtive Muslim): IF ONE ACCEPTS THE LIE THAT OBAMA IS A SECRET MUSLIM, AND IF ONE AGREES THAT THERE IS ACTUALLY A WORLDWIDE MUSLIM CONSPIRACY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD, THEN FROM A "CHRISTIAN STANDPOINT," BOTH OBAMA AND MUSLIMS IN GENERAL SHOULD BE VIEWED AS "ENEMIES ABSOLUTE" MUCH IN THE SAME FASHION THAT JEWS WERE VIEWED AS AN "ENEMY ABSOLUTE" BY THE NAZIS.

FROM THERE IT IS NOT THAT MUCH OF A JUMP TO THE CONCLUSON THAT THE NAZIS MADE WITH REGARD TO THE JEWS: THAT MUSLIMS SHOULD BE EXTERMINATED! - A "SOLUTION" THAT THE SECULARIST NEO-CONS ARE PUSHING WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT IN ORDER TO SECURE THE OIL RICHES OF THE MIDDLE EAST FOR THE UNITED STATES USING RELIGION AS THEIR EXCUSE.

It is precisely here that one is reminded of Leo Strauss's understanding of religion as a "PIOUS FRAUD:" That while religion is absolutely essential in order to impose moral law on the masses, who otherwise would be out of control, it is a FARCE in and of itself. As a result, neo-conservatives are, as Ronald Bailey, science correspondent for Reason Magazine points out,

"... pro-religion even though they themselves are not believers." [Please see our article, "The Neo-Conservatives."]

The dead of the sons of Ishmael

A war of extermination! This is insane stuff! - and so much so that most would be tempted to dismiss such thinking as nonsense. But those who do so have little or no idea of the kind of "absolutist thinking" that animates the members of CUFI.]

The Obama smear was eventually picked up by Insight Magazine, a publication of the Washington Times, which said of Obama,

"Once a Muslim, always a Muslim."

Shortly thereafter, Human Events, another conservative magazine, published the smear on its website in a series of articles called "Barack Obama Exposed." One of the articles was titled "The First Muslim President?" From there the smears spread to conservative talk-radio where Michael Savage "noted" Obama's "background" in a "Muslim madrassa in Indonesia," and Rush Limbaugh said that he occasionally got "confused" between Obama and Osama bin Laden. Others - such as Bill Cunningham - began emphasizing Obama's middle name "Hussein" - knowing full well that most people would connect that name to Saddam Hussein, the former dictator of Iraq.

LEFT TP RIGHT: Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Cunningham - all of whom are mouthpieces for the neo-cons, the secular arm of the neo-con / "Christian" alliance.

Rob Schenck

THE SMEARS SPREAD INTO THE
MAINLINE EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY

And so we have the smear originating in the "ether-sphere" of the Neo-Con / Christian alliance / Jewish Alliance in Tel Aviv where it was probably manufactured out of "whole cloth;" from there the smear was picked up by the "biggies" in American talk radio (all of whom are "toadies" for the neo-cons) and by various neo-con publications such as Insight Magazine and Human Events.

From talk-radio the smear spread rapidly into mainline evangelical churches where people like Bryan Keelin of Charleston, South Carolina, who works with an organization of churches there, began spreading the smear in churches where he worked: "I assume his father - who was a Muslim - instructed him on the ways of being a Muslim," said Keelin; he continued: "The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the U.S. from the inside out." The Rev. Rob Schenck, a reform Jew who converted to Christianity and who now calls himself a "missionary to Capitol Hill," also "bought into" the smears; he mused, "Is Obama a Muslim?"

NOTE: Schenck is closely associated with the annual National Prayer Breakfasts held in Washington, D.C as part of the National Day of Prayer; this event is hosted by the "Fellowship Foundation," a somewhat secretive, rabidly anti-union, pro-business, "CHRISTIAN" organization founded by Abraham Vereide. Some of the most powerful men in the country are members, among whom are Senators Don Nickles (R., Okla.), Charles Grassley (R., Iowa), Pete Domenici (R., N.Mex.), John Ensign (R., Nev.), James Inhofe (R., Okla.), etc. all of whom are very prominent Republican Party politicos. The Fellowship Foundation" boasts close ties with the OIL, AEROSPACE AND ARMAMENTS INDUSTRIES." [For more information on the Fellowship Foundation," please see our article, "The Cedars: The House on 24th Street."]

Schenck's musings were picked up by the Christian Newswire; it charged Obama with wearing a "What-Would-Satan-Do Bracelet."

Debbie Schlussel, a Jewish journalist, went on to parrot the charge,

"Barack Hussein Obama: Once a Muslim, always a Muslim."

NOTE: Schlussel writes:

Schlussel

"Many months ago, readers began asking me whether Barack Obama is Muslim. Since he identifies as a Christian, I said, "no," and responded that he was not raised by his Kenyan father. But, then, I decided to look further into Obama's background. His full name-as by now you have probably heard-is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Hussein is a Muslim name, which comes from the name of Ali's son-Hussein Ibn Ali. And Obama is named after his late Kenyan father, the late Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a Muslim. And while Obama may not identify as a Muslim, that's not how the Arab and Muslim Streets see it. In Arab culture and under Islamic law, if your father is a Muslim, so are you. And once a Muslim, always a Muslim. You cannot go back. In Islamic eyes, Obama is certainly a Muslim. He may think he's a Christian, but they do not.

"Then, there are the other items in his background. As best-selling author Scott Turow wrote in Salon, Obama went to a Muslim school for two years in Indonesia. His mother, Anna, married an Indonesian man, another Muslim.

"And Obama has a 'born-again' affinity for the nation of his Muslim father, Kenya, and his Kenyan sister. (Although Kenya is largely Christian, it has a fast-growing Muslim population that has engaged in a good deal of religious violence and riots against Christians. And Kenyan courts will apply Sharia law, when the participants are Muslim.) Wrote Turow: 'Obama's father died in a traffic accident in Nairobi in 1982, but while Obama was working in Chicago, he met his Kenyan sister, Auma, a linguist educated in Germany who was visiting the United States. When she returned to Kenya in 1986 to teach for a year at the University of Nairobi, Obama finally made the trip to his father's homeland he had long promised himself. There, he managed to fully embrace a heritage and a family he'd never fully known and come to terms with his father, whom he'd long regarded as an august foreign prince.

"So, even if he identifies strongly as a Christian, he is a man who Muslims think is a Muslim, who feels some sort of psychological need to prove himself to his absent Muslim father, and who is now moving in the direction of his father's heritage, a man we want as President when we are fighting the war of our lives against Islam? Where will his loyalties be?

"NO WAY, JOSE . . . Or, is that, HUSSEIN?"

THE OBAMA SMEARS ARE PICKED
UP BY THE JEWISH PRESS

Caroline Glick

Finally, even the Jewish media picked up on the smear. Indeed, Lasky became a household name in the mainstream Jewish press, and the talk of the town at synagogues - even liberal ones. The charges that Obama was anti-Israel and that he was connected to Muslim terrorist groups circulated far and wide. Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post quoted Lasky at length in a January column, printing his false claims as fact. All this led Andrew Silow-Carroll, editor of the New Jersey Jewish News, and no necessary friend of Obama, to write:

"I wonder how a tendentiously argued anti-Obama piece is mass-emailed by so many Jews who should know better."

AND THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER! - involving themselves as they are doing in a nexus of hate that - insofar as the neo-cons and the Republican Party elites are concerned - has no real love for the Jewish community and the state of Israel. [Please see our articles, "The Religious Right and Israel; A Relationship that Cannot Hold," "The Real Enemy of Israel; It's Not Who You Think" and "The Republican Party and the Jews."]

The Jewish community would have been well advised to have taken the advice of Christ concerning such "false" alliances:

"Cast [not] your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." (Matthew 7:6)

AARON KLEIN

Aaron Klein

Another Jewish purveyor of the smear campaign against Obama is Aaron Klein, a close associate of Lasky, and through Lasky, the "CUFI / IFCJ / Hagee / Parsley" nexus. Klein, who is an Orthodox Jew, is Jerusalem correspondent for WorldNetDaily (WND). WND is notoriously disreputable, a sort of National Enquirer for the right (typical headline: "I Took Drugs and Had Homo Sex With Obama").

Klein made a name for himself by getting terrorists to say nice things about Democrats so that he could later charge these same Democrats with being "enemies of Israel" and "soft on Islamic terrorists." Klein has turned his fire on Obama, attempting to expose his so-called "terrorist connections."

Klein penned two stories in late February wildly distorting Obama's links from his days in Chicago to pro-Palestinian activists like Rashid Khalidi, a respected professor of Middle East studies at Columbia University who previously taught at the University of Chicago (hardly a bastion of left-wing activism). Klein's story goes something like this: Obama sat on the board of a foundation in Chicago that gave a grant to the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), run by Khalidi's wife, which supposedly rejects Israel's existence; and Khalidi directed the PLO's Beirut press office and is a supporter "of Palestinian terror."

NOTE: In fact, the AAAN focuses solely on social service work in Chicago and takes no position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Khalidi says he was never employed by the PLO; he has been a harsh critic of Palestinian suicide bombings and is a longtime supporter of a two-state solution; and, finally, he has never been an adviser to Obama.) [For more information on Khalidi, please see our article, "McCain and Palin: the Business Right Marries the Religious Right."]

WHAT'S GOING ON?

What this Evangelical / Neo-Con / Jewish Alliance (i.e., the "Neo-Con / CUFI / IFCJ / Hagee / Parsley" nexus) is attempting to do is remove Obama as president in the 2012 elections and place someone in the presidency who would be amenable to signing a defense pact with Israel; and then provoking the Islamic world into making war against it, which the neo-cons and the oil elites would like to turn into a war of extermination insofar as the Islamic population of the Middle East and Central Asia is concerned. BUT GOD WARNS ISRAEL AGAINST MAKING SUCH AN ALLIANCE; He terms this alliance:

"... your [meaning Israel's) COVENANT WITH DEATH ["Death" meaning the US] ... and your AGREEMENT WITH HELL ["Hell" meaning the US] ..." (Isaiah 28:18) Please see part 6 of Chapter XV of the New Antipas Papers, "Israel's Agreement with Hell."]

NOTE: In all of this, one should bear in mind the responsibility that the neo-cons and the American intelligence community bear in creating the phenomenon of radical Islam, the very phenomenon that these same entities are now urging American Christians to make war against. [We URGE you to see our article, "Radical Islam."]

And more than that: IT MAKES ALL THOSE WHO ARE "PUSHING" THIS ALLIANCE ON ISRAEL (AND EVEN THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM) ENEMIES OF GOD - and people such as Richard Paradise and even my own twin brother would be well advised to disassociate themselves from all those who are knowingly or even unknowingly "pushing such an alliance, even if it means breaking with their friends in the evangelical church - people such as Glen Cole, the "biggies" up at Multnomah and Western Theological Seminary, and others of their ilk.

Believe me when I say, God does not need the help of his enemy, Babylon the Great, in defending the Jewish state; and THOSE WHO THINK THEY ARE "DOING GOD SERVICE" IN PROMOTING SUCH A TREATY WILL SUFFER THE SAME FATE THAT UZZAH SUFFERED.

Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. "And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God."
