OBAMA'S MIDEAST POLICY:

Making peace with Islam by
throwing Israel "under the bus"

WE ARE UNDER ATTACK - LARGELY BECAUSE OF OUR LAST TWO ARTICLES

&

WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL HELP

SEVEN DAYS IN MAY:
Obama verses the generals:
a failed coup attempt

THERE ARE SEVEN KINGS ...

We have come under considerable pressure because of our last two articles, "Seven Days in May" and "There Are Seven Kings." While I am restrained from going into too much detail, I can tell you that the stress we have been under has been intense and very extreme.

These attacks have drained down to nothing our financial resources, and we desperately need your help so that we can continue the work to which the Lord has called us.

PREFACE

I have been accused by many of my opponents of having a bias against Israel in that I oppose the military alliance between America and Israel for which many evangelical Christians are pressing. Evangelicals have been horrified by Obama's very apparent anti-Israeli tilt toward the jihadists of the Middle East, a tilt that has led many of them to consider the necessity of a coup against Obama in connection with the nation's military and its financial elites. But the alliance for which evangelicals are pressing is that very alliance that the Scriptures refer to as Israel's "COVENANT WITH DEATH" and her "AGREEMENT WITH HELL:"

"... 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."]

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, the late Derek Prince, the ICEJ, CUFI, ad nauseum, ad infinitum. But in reality 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. [Please see our article, "The Superman Theology of the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles."]

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. Sadly, 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. 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.

I repeat! - 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 made - and they will pay the same price!! Already there has been an effort by the military to overthrow the Obama government with, it seems, Israeli connivance. It failed; BUT, as we suggested in our article, "Seven Days in May," it's only a matter of time before the military – with the support of the Religious Right and America's financial elites - is successful [Please see our recent article, "Seven Days in May."]

Roger Cohen of the
New York Times

INTRODUCTION

In an article that appeared in the New York Times on October 22, 2012, Roger Cohen, a "progressive" Jew whose writings are anathema to conservative Jews living in Israel as well as Christian evangelicals in this country, did more than most have been able to do to bring some semblance of understanding to Obama's policies in the Middle East. He wrote:

"Perhaps the most radical change in U.S. foreign policy under President Obama has occurred here in Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood, long shunned as a collection of dangerous Islamist extremists, is now the de facto object of American support."

Cohen continued:

"Today ultraconservative Salafist politicians [a far-right component of the Muslim Brotherhood] ... are now regular visitors to the U.S. Embassy [in Cairo] and, on the theory that it is better to have them inside the tent than out, they are able to visit the United States to learn [supposedly] how things work in the land of Jeffersonian democracy.

"Of course, the new American thinking goes, agreement will never be possible with these Salafis on women's rights, for example, but this does not mean that they cannot have a mutually beneficial relationship with the West or evolve. Every Salafi in Parliament is one less potential jihadist."

A Salafi is a Muslim who teaches a literalist, strict and puritanical approach to Islam; they espouse violent jihad against civilians as a legitimate expression of Islam.

Cohen goes on to say:

"Still, I would argue that the United States has made the right choice; that this new policy of engagement with even extreme currents of political Islam in the Middle East is salutary; THE MODEL SHOULD BE EXPANDED ...

"What is the alternative to supporting Morsi and the Brotherhood? ... Well, the United States could cut them off and hope they fail — but I can think of no surer way to guarantee radicalization and aggravate the very tendencies the West wants to avoid as a poverty-stricken Egypt goes into an economic tailspin. The same would be true of any attempt to install the armed forces again, with the difference that there would also be bloodshed ... [Please see our article, "Grain markets soar on worldwide crop downgrades."]

"America's radical policy turnabout in Cairo poses an important question: Why is this engagement with political Islam, even in Salafist form, confined to Egypt? If Washington has discovered by engaging that the long reviled Brotherhood, or at least large swathes of it, may evolve into centrist pragmatists, what other such discoveries may be made through dialogue rather than confrontation? ...

Cohen sums up:

"In Egypt, where almost 25 percent of Arabs live, the United States has at last begun to deal with the Arab world as it really is."

AN OMINOUS TURN OF EVENTS

The fact that such a radical change in U.S. policy in the Middle East has actually been occurring for some time now is attested to by the new "OPENNESS" of the White House to representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood: a year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), a pro-Israeli publication popular in conservative Christian circles, has found that scores of known radical Islamists have made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House in recent years.

The IPT made the discovery combing through millions of White House visitor log entries. IPT compared the visitors' names with lists of known radical Islamists. Among the visitors were officials representing groups which have:

  • Been designated by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist trials; Extolled Islamic terrorist groups including Hamas and Hizballah;
  • Obstructed terrorist investigations by instructing their followers not to cooperate with law enforcement;
  • Promoted the incendiary conspiratorial allegation that the United States is engaged in a "war against Islam"— a leading tool in recruiting Muslims to carry out acts of terror;
  • Repeatedly claimed that many of the Islamic terrorists convicted since 9-11 were framed by the U.S government as part of an anti-Muslim profiling campaign.

In addition, IPT reports that numerous individuals from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have visited the White House at least 20 times starting in 2009.

Hussam Ayloush

This is rather astonishing because the anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli, jihadist history of CAIR is plain enough for anyone to see: for example, in 2008 (under Bush II, of course), CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist money laundering case in U.S. history – the trial of the Holy Land Foundation in which five HLF officials were convicted of funneling money to Hamas.

In January 2004, Hussam Ayloush, executive director of CAIR's Los Angeles office, publicly defended Palestinian terror attacks in comments before Muslim students at the University of California – Los Angeles, saying that terrorists were exercising their "legitimate right" to defend themselves against Israeli occupation.

Ayloush, who was an actual delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., has repeatedly cast the United States as controlled by Israeli interests. The logs show Ayloush met with Paul Monteiro, associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement on July 8, 2011 and Amanda Brown, assistant to the White House director of political affairs Patrick Gaspard, on June 6, 2009.

Monteiro (left), Brown (right)

Monteiro has long been known as the White House's liaison for secret contacts with CAIR, especially with Ayloush. Monteiro has been instrumental in arranging a series of secret meetings between Ayloush and senior White House officials.

And so it goes – and this is to say nothing of the visits of Louay Safi, formerly executive director of the Islamic Society of North America; Esam Omeish, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood-created Muslim American Society; Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates and the National Association of Muslim Lawyers (NAML); Hisham al-Talib–A founder and current VP of Finance for Herndon, VA-based, International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), an organization the FBI believes has housed key Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the United States since the late 1980s; Abdur Rashid–religious and spiritual leader of Harlem's Mosque of the Islamic Brotherhood; Hatem Abudayyeh – executive director of the Chicago-based Arab American Action Network, founded by Rashid Khalidi, a friend of President Obama etc., etc.

Safi, Omeish (above) Khera, al-Talib, Rashid, Abudayyeh (below); Abudayyeh is the executive director of the Chicago-based Arab American Action Network, founded by Rashid Khalidi, a friend of President Obama.

KHALIDI & OBAMA

Khalidi (left); Obama (right)

In April 2008, as the presidential campaign was getting underway, Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times published a story describing the going-away party for Professor Rashid Khalidi, a devoted advocate to the Palestinian cause and a harsh critic of Israel, who was on his way to a position at Columbia University. Khalidi was also a past spokesman for the PLO. The dinner occurred in 2003, when Barack Obama was then an Illinois state senator. Wallsten wrote, "A special tribute came from Khalidi's friend and frequent dinner companion, the young state Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi's wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking. His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. . . . It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation." The Times reported that while in Chicago, Obama had attended events where anger at Israel and American Mideast policy "was freely expressed," including at the Khalidi farewell party where a Palestinian American read a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism against the Palestinians. Another speaker compared Jewish settlers to Osama bin Laden, both said to be "blinded by ideology."

_______________________________________________

Concerning the unparalleled access to the White House that the Muslim Brotherhood and other like-minded jihadist organizations now possess, Steve Emerson and John Rossomando of IPT News, write:

"Our worst predictions [concerning Obama's Middle East policies have come true]. Muslim Brotherhood groups whose stated goal is 'eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers, so that it is eliminated, and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions' have absolute access to the White House."

THE OVERT ANTI-SEMITISM OF THE MUSLIM
PUBLIC AFFAIRS COUNCIL (MPAC)

And make no mistake about it, the OVERT anti-Semitism of the many anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic, jihadist groups that have gained access to the White House is truly astonishing. Take, for example, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC): MPAC is a national American Muslim advocacy and public policy organization headquartered in Los Angeles with offices in Washington D.C. It "fronts" for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States; in doing so, it styles itself as a "moderate" Islamic group advocating for a peaceful solution to the "JEWISH PROBLEM" in Palestine; BUT in a statement by its president - Salam al-Marayati - regarding the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the organization revealed its true anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli sentiments:

"If we're going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies."

MPAC follows an anti-Semitic doctrine that refers to Jews as the "SONS OF PIGS AND APES" and calls for the demise not only of the Jewish state, but of Jews everywhere. They subscribe to the Hadith Muhammad which calls on Muslims to –

"... fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh, Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him!" (Bukhari 4.52.176 & 177, and 4.56.791.)

And just how anti-Semitic MPAC is, is attested to by the cartoons of Khalil Bendib that appeared regularly in an MPAC publication called The Minaret; the following examples should suffice to exhibit MPAC's anti-Semitism:

On the left, Bendib cartoon (2000) depicting a gorilla with a Star of David and its arms and legs over the globe. On the right, cartoon by Nazi artist Josef Plank showing an octopus with a Star of David over its head and its tentacles encompassing a globe. (1938)


Left: Cartoon by Bendib depicting Anti-Defamation League leader Abe Foxman using an anti-Semitic stereotype common in early 20th c. Germany and Austria (right).


Left: Bendib cartoon depicting a genie holding a bag with a dollar sign, a Star of David and the names of three American Jewish organizations. Right: Picture from the Nazi children's book, Der Giftpilz (The Toadstool). Its caption reads: "Money is the God of the Jews."


Left: Bendib's depiction of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as a cannibal. Right: A Nazi poster depicting Jews as "warmongers and war extenders." Note similarity in stereotyped Jewish facial features.

♦ ♦ ♦

According to Nazi propaganda, "international Jewry" was in control behind the scenes in the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and the United States. As such, Nazi propagandists depicted World War Two as a Jewish war against Nazi Germany. The following are examples of this Nazi propaganda theme.

Left: A Jewish Puppeteer Controlling Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt. Middle: "One eats the other - the Jew will eat all." Right: The Jew leading Churchill


Bendib cartoon depicting a "Zionist" puppeteer controlling US politics.


In this cartoon, Bendib echoes the Nazi propaganda myth of Jewish control over politics, culture and the media. Note character saying, "Puttin' back the hood in Yahood." (The Arabic word for Jew is "Yahood.") The target in this cartoon is unmistakably Jews, not "Zionists".

NONETHELESS ...

Nonetheless, despite the OVERT anti-Semitism of MPAC, it has managed to secure an exceedingly close working relationship with the Obama White House: at least fifteen MPAC officials have been welcomed there; for example, Executive Director Salam al-Marayati enjoyed at least six White House visits between September 2009 and July 2011. MPAC's Washington director Haris Tarin made 24 trips to the White House between December 2009 and March 2012. Those meetings often were intimate in nature, involving a handful of people at most. Edina Lekovic, an MPAC spokeswoman, visited the White House twice in July 2010.

All this gives evidence to the RADICAL change in U.S. policy toward Israel under Obama – and it gives evidence to the insensitivity of the Obama Administration to the virulent anti-Semitism extant in the world today.

Chuck Hagel

CHUCK HAGEL

Finally, there is the matter of Obama's preference for Chuck Hagel to fill the post of Secretary of Defense. The Times of Israel reports:

"Now that the election is over Barack Obama no longer has to appeal to supporters of Israel or haters of terrorism — he is about to appoint former Senator Chuck Hagel to replace Leon Panetta as Secretary of Defense ... A top Israel advocate reports ... that 'the pro-Israel community will view the nomination of Senator Chuck Hagel in an extremely negative light. His record is unique in its ANIMUS towards Israel ... He is one of the most hostile critics of Israel that has ever been in the Senate'."

Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner reports that despite the fact that Hagel is a Republican -

"Hagel is one of the most consistently anti-Israel Senators in modern history ..."

And that, as a result -

"Would [make Hagel] a great fit for Obama administration."

INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY

Investors Business Daily (IBD), a well-known business publication, reports that -

"It has become increasingly clear that Obama administration is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel ..."

IBD goes on to say that the anti-Israeli bias of the Obama administration has become so overt that it has led many in Israel to accept the belief propagated by evangelical Christians that Obama is a "closet Muslim." They cite comments by former Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit in June, 2010, who said:

"The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim."

Gheit made this statement after a recent one-on-one meeting with Obama. He made the remarks on Nile TV.

Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago

IBD, naturally enough, discounted Gheit's comments and went on to say:

"While Obama's father and stepfather were Muslim, and he himself studied Islam as a child in Indonesia, there's no evidence that the president practices Islam. As far as we know, he doesn't pray five times a day or observe other Islamic rituals."

IBD EXAMINES THE REASONS
BEHIND OBAMA'S BIAS AGAINST ISRAEL

The editors of IBD trace Obama's bias against Israel to his "Chicago Days." IBD reports:

"It was at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago that his [i.e., Obama's] political views on Israel were cemented. His old church called for a South African-style boycott of Israel for its 'apartheid' against Palestinians while Obama sat in its pews for some 20 years.

"Trinity also sang the praises of Hamas, even reprinting the group's terrorist manifesto in its church bulletin. Written by Hamas deputy chief Mousa Abu Marzook, a fugitive terrorist, the letter was featured on the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's 'Pastors Page' under the title 'A Fresh View of the Palestinian Struggle'."

"Wright, a one-time member of the Nation of Islam, gave overt Jew-bashing sermons while mentoring Obama. He once joined Louis Farrakhan on a trip to Libya to pay homage to Moammar Gadhafi. In 1995, Obama joined Wright in Farrakhan's Million Man March."

Obama joined Farrakhan's Million Man March

"Speaking to thousands of supporters during the 82nd annual Saviors' Day celebration in Chicago, Farrakhan said:

'I'm not anti-Semitic, I'm just telling the truth'. They control movies, television, recording, publishing, commerce, radio, they own it all. They are the demons, not I. And they are the Satans, not I'."

Bishop E. W. Jackson

BISHOP E.W. JACKSON, SR.

Bishop E. W. Jackson Sr, an anomaly in the black community in that he admits to the popularity of the anti-Semitism of such black leaders as Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan in the larger Black community of which Obama was a part during his "Chicago Days," writes:

"Like Obama, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family ... Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama's policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see.

"All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fueled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization. We heard it in Jesse Jackson's 'HYMIE town' remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright's remark about 'them Jews' not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a 'Jew' problem.

"Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania, I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were 'greedy cheaters' who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood ...

"In Chicago, the anti-Jewish sentiment among black people is even more pronounced because of the direct influence of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Most African Americans are not followers of 'The Nation', but many have a quiet respect for its leader because, they say, 'he speaks the truth' and 'stands up for the black man' ...

"The question is whether Obama, given his Muslim roots and experience in Farrakhan's Chicago, shares this antipathy for Israel and Jewish people. Is there any evidence that he does. First, the President was taught for twenty years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY IT IS CALLED 'SITTING UNDER'. YOU DON'T MERELY ATTEND A CHURCH, YOU 'SIT UNDER' A PASTOR TO BE TAUGHT AND MENTORED BY HIM. Obama 'sat under' Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan – Wright's friend – to attend and help organize his 'Million Man March' ...

"The classic left wing view is that Israel is the oppressive occupier, and the Palestinians are Israel's victims. Obama is clearly sympathetic to this view. In speaking to the 'Muslim World,' he did not address the widespread Islamic hatred of Jews. Instead he attacked Israel over the growth of West Bank settlements. Surely he knows that settlements are not the crux of the problem.

"The absolute refusal of the Palestinians to accept Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state is the insurmountable obstacle. That's where the pressure needs to be placed, but this President sees it differently. He also made the preposterous comparison of the Holocaust to Palestinian 'dislocation'. Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities. He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective. His construct of 'The Muslim World' is unique in modern diplomacy ...

"It is rather odd to hear an American President use it. In doing so he reveals more about his thinking than he intends. The dramatic policy reversal of joining the unrelentingly ant-Semitic, anti-Israel and pro-Islamic UN Human Rights Council is in keeping with the President's truest – albeit undeclared – sensibilities Those who are paying attention and thinking about these issues do not find it unreasonable to consider that President Obama is influenced by a strain of anti-Semitism picked up from the black community, his leftist friends and colleagues, his Muslim associations and his long period of mentorship under Jeremiah Wright."

IBD concurs with Jackson:

"Obama and many of his advisers reject the idea that Islamist ideology is fundamentally opposed to Western civilization ... They come from the point of view that American policy is the root cause, especially our tilt in favor of Israel."

SATAN'S GREATEST RUSE

Constance Cumbey

My good friend, Constance Cumbey, once told me:

"Satan's greatest ruse is to first create a problem, and then offer the solution; the poison is not so much in the problem as it is in the solution."

The problem that Satan has created regarding Israel (at least insofar as conservative Christians are concerned) is the ant-israel bias (and even a secreted anti-Semitic bias) of the Obama government – all of which is evidenced by the way, as Roger Cohen has explained, the Obama administration has tilted in favor of the jihadists in the Middle East, making them "... the de facto object of American support," to say nothing of the OPENENESS the Obama White House has exhibited to such anti-Semitic groups such as the MPAC.

The rage that Obama's bias against Israel has produced in countless numbers of American evangelicals is slowly, but very deliberately, being translated into a belief that the only thing that can stop Obama is a right-wing military coup.

But in succumbing to this rage, evangelical Christians may in the end - and in the name of God - perpetrate greater human miseries and dangers, not only on the country but the world at large, than the miseries they had at first thought to eradicate, becoming thereby the very evil they had at first professed to combat.

Again, without realizing it, what they are in danger of doing is repeating the mistake German Christians made seventy years ago with Hitler.

CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR ISRAEL (CUFI)

Jennifer Rubin

Jennifer Rubin, a conservative American columnist for the Washington Post and a Jew, writes in Commentary Magazine that the anti-Israeli rhetoric of the Obama Administration has become horrifying for evangelical Christians; she writes:

"If you listen to anti-Israel conspiratorialists, U.S. policy toward Israel is dictated by the 'Jewish lobby' or — since it gives anti-Semitic deniability (however implausible) — the 'Israel lobby.' In fact, however, the biggest pro-Israel group in the United States is Christians United for Israel (CUFI), and polling shows that the American people as a whole remain consistently pro-Israel."

In other words, the greatest amount of support for Israel in the United States does not emanate from a secret cabal of Jewish financiers, as groups such as CAIR and MPAC allege, but from Christian evangelicals. Rubin cites CUFI (Citizens United for Israel) as the most important evangelical group in enlisting evangelical support for Israel. [Please see our article, THE ENEMIES OF GOD, Part 1 (Pushing for an alliance between Israel and God's enemy {i.e., Babylon the Great} makes one also an enemy of God).]

Pastor John Hagee

Rubin writes:

"CUFI ... claims a membership of 1.1 million, all of whom have come to loathe Obama ... I asked what the impact of Obama's Israel stance has had on his group: Hagee believes that Obama is willing to sacrifice the Jewish state for the 'greater good' of the Middle East."

And Hagee is probably right. She goes on to report:

"The other day, Hagee opened up the 'Hagee Hotline' to answer questions from parishioners about the election; questions like 'do you believe [President Obama] is the precursor to the Anti-Christ'?

"Hagee never really answered the question, simply predicting that an economic crash is coming that will result in the rise of a global economic czar who will, in fact, be the Anti-Christ."

Hagee warned that -

"America has chosen a leader who is for 'men marrying men', who is 'pro-abortion' and who has 'attacked freedom of religion' and so this nation is 'about to face the consequences of our choices' because 'God will hold America responsible for that choice':" [We URGE you to see our article, "Whose Purposes Are Being Served When the Anti-Christ is Portrayed as a New Age Guru and as a Man of Peace."]

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN CIRCLES ARE
RIFE WITH TALK CONCERNING A MILITARY COUP

Christian evangelical circles are now rife with talk about a coming military coup directed against Obama. For example, as early as 2009, the Alex Jones's Prison Planet TV show - which is extremely popular with right-wing Christian evangelicals - featured an interview conducted by Paul Joseph Watson with former White House speechwriter John L. Perry. Perry was saying that at some time in the near future the U.S. Military, upholding their oath to defend the Constitution against domestic enemies, may have to stage a bloodless coup to oust President Obama.

Paul Joseph Watson is a popular vendor of the "conspiracy theories" which swirl and surround the "extra-biblical" material purveyed by such NAIFS and DIMWITS as Alex Jones, Pat Robertson, Tex Marrs, Jeff Rense, ad nauseum - "extra-biblical" material that finds its origin in anti-Semitic literature like the Illuminist Conspiracy! Illuminati enthusiasts and devotees like to paint the myth as extending back into the misty past, but that simply is not the case. The Illuminati Myth did not exist as literature prior to the French Revolution - and even then only as disjointed pieces, not as a consistent whole. Not until 1905 did the myth explode on the world as a coherent body of literature. What anti-Semitic writings that did exist prior to 1797 had nothing to do with the Jews as participants in a revolutionary world-conspiracy aimed at the destruction of Christianity; it was largely confined to religious themes with only the most indirect political overtones. Clearly, the anti-Semitic literature which existed prior to 1797 tied the Jews to the death of Christ, and on that basis they were persecuted; it also pictured them as "moneylenders," and occasionally it linked them to the practice of witchcraft; but it never portrayed them as revolutionaries bent on the conquest of the world. On the contrary, Jews were painted as weaklings and cowards; a people hardly worth even the most indirect kind of political attention - and for that reason, most European armies excluded Jews from military service well into the nineteenth century. [Please see our article, "The Origins of the Illuminist Myth," "Pat Robertson and the Illuminati Myth;" please see Norman Cohn, Warrant for Genocide (New York: Harper and Row).]

Top figure: Alex Jones; bottom figure: Paul Joseph Watson

Perry warned,

"There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America's military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the 'Obama problem'. Don't dismiss it as unrealistic."

Perry went on to say,

"A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible."

Perry says that such a move could be accelerated if Israel were to bomb Iran, causing the Middle East to explode and creating a massive destabilization of the free world. Perry went on to say that other causes that could "front" for a military coup are a huge terror attack that kills millions and/or another financial meltdown similar to the one that rocked the country in 2008.

SEVEN DAYS IN MAY:
Obama verses the generals:
a failed coup attempt

THERE ARE SEVEN KINGS ...

A PRESCIENT ADMONITION FROM LOUIS FARRAKHAN

Ticking-off a long list of inflammatory statements made by evangelical Christians against Obama, Farrakhan suggested that President Obama would be a target for assassination.

"If an atmosphere of hatred is being created for Obama, then what is the next step?"

[We URGE you to see our two very important articles, "There Are Seven Kings" and "Seven Days in May."]

One would do well NOT to dismiss Farrakhan's warning here; he has a lot more INSIGHT into the REALPOLITIK of today's world than do most evangelical Christians who remain insulated in suburbia and who are subsumed by the pursuit of the "GOOD LIFE."

THE GOOD THINGS OF LIFE

  • A nice home
  • An expensive car
  • A good career
  • A good education
  • A fat bank account
  • Nice vacations

These are those Christians about whom the Bible says:

"Having eyes (to see), (they) see ... not, and having ears (to hear), (they) hear ... not ..." (Mark 8:18)

And why is that? Jesus explains in His admonition to the Church in Laodicea:

"Because thou sayest, I am (materially) rich, and increased with (material) goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art (spiritually) wretched, and (spiritually) miserable, and (spiritually) poor, and (spiritually) blind, and (spiritually) naked ..." (Rev. 3:17) [Please see our documentary, "Greed Is Good."]

Christ is juxtaposing the material wealth that this world offers against the spiritual wealth that the Kingdom of Heaven offers - and in doing so, He is implying that they (i.e., the believers in Laodicea) have made the wrong choice: that's what this verse is all about. [Please see Appendix 1: "WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHURCH IN LAODICEA?."]

Christ then warns these Christians to -

"... BUY of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see." (Rev. 3:17-18)

Gold tried in the fire is spiritual wealth; He is saying that the Laodiceans must BUY it! In other words, it will cost them something to secure this wealth (i.e., spiritual wealth - the kind of wealth that means something in the Kingdom of Heaven). And what is that? - their material wealth. It will cost them their material wealth. They are going to have to give it up! Christians who have no money need to quit pursuing it; and Christians who do have money must learn to live as if they had none!

"... BUY of me gold tried in the fire ..."

God bless you all!

We have come under considerable pressure because of our last two articles, "Seven Days in May" and "There Are Seven Kings." While I am restrained from going into too much detail, I can tell you that the stress we have been under has been intense and very extreme.

These attacks have drained down to nothing our financial resources, and we desperately need your help so that we can continue the work to which the Lord has called us.

Then make copies and take these copies out to the campuses where you live; pass them out; OR if that seems too "daring" for you right now, post them on telephone poles, the sides of buildings, on campus bulletin boards; post them in union halls, in the neighborhoods of the poor and downtrodden, near employment offices, wherever you can.


Once again, we URGE you to read (or re-read):

APPENDIX 1

WHAT HAPPENED TO
THE CHURCH IN LAODICEA?

Two times in the New Testament we read about "the church of the Laodiceans" (Col. 4:16; Rev. 3:14). Paul also mentioned "the brethren which are in Laodicea" (Col. 4:15).

Laodicea was a city located in Asia Minor. The congregation of the Lord's church there was included in the expression "the seven churches which are in Asia." They are the ones to whom the Book of Revelation was addressed (Rev. 1:11).

What do we know about the church of the Laodiceans? It existed when Paul wrote the Book of Colossians (A.D. 62/63). From what Jesus said years later to the saints in that locale through the apostle John, it is plain that something awful had taken place in the church there. From a spiritual standpoint, the church of the Laodiceans was a disaster at the time John penned the Revelation of Jesus the Christ (Rev. 3:14-22).

What went wrong? Were the people who made up the church in Laodicea ever really converted in the first place? Was it ever a true church of the living God? Go back to the Book of Colossians. Again, Paul referred to the members there as "the brethren which are in Laodicea" (Col. 4:15). Yes, they were real brethren in the Lord. What did Paul instruct the saints in Colosse to do with the letter that he wrote to them (the Book of Colossians)?

First, they were to read it among themselves. Second, they were to make sure that it was also read in the church of the Laodiceans (Col. 4:16). It is obvious that the Holy Spirit spoke of the church in Laodicea as a real church. But what happened to the church there? Know this: the brethren there did not go astray because they lacked proper instruction. There was an epistle that someone wrote to them (Col. 4:16), they were to be given access to the epistle that Paul wrote to the Colossians, and Jesus sent them a letter through John (Rev. 3). That is at least three letters of instruction to guide them. Neither could anyone in the church at Laodicea rightfully say that no one really cared about them. Jesus rebuked them alright, but He explained why He did so: "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten..." (Rev. 3:19).

Let us take a deep breath right here and tell it like it is. No one, and I mean no one, becomes unfaithful to the Lord because there is not ample guidance available. Folks, every true child of God has the Bible for divine guidance! Second, no one, and I mean no one, wavers in his faith because no one cares about him. If every other person in the church becomes a cold-hearted snob, this fact remains: God cares for every one of His children (1 Peter 5:7).

What did Jesus say to the church of the Laodiceans that reveals what their spiritual status was in His sight? It is not a pretty picture, but consider these facts (references are from Revelation chapter 3).

  • The Laodiceans had become lukewarm (3:16).

They so disgusted Christ that He was prepared to VOMIT them out of His mouth! Could their condition be cured? Yes! By whom? By them. How? By becoming zealous. That is exactly what the Master told them to do: "...be zealous..." (3:19).

  • They were proud and trusted in their own self-sufficiency (3:17).

They considered themselves as rich, having need of nothing. Jesus, however, lets all men know: "...without me ye can do nothing" (John 15:5).

  • They were spiritually poor, spiritually blind, and spiritually naked (3:17).

Jesus said so. He also said they did not know such was the case. They either had become so spiritually dull they did not recognize what they were truly like, or else they refused to see themselves as they really were (James 1:23,24).

  • They needed to repent.

Jesus commanded them to do just that (3:19). Their APOSTASY shows plainly that a child of God can sin and stand in need of repentance. Jesus' words also show that it is possible for a child of God in sin to come to his senses and "make things right." His words further let us know that a whole congregation can get to the point that it needs to repent. He who thinks that every modern-day congregation of the church of the Christ is doing just fine and dandy is lacking proper spiritual discernment, just like the brethren in Laodicea did. [Please see our documentary, "Greed Is Good."]

  • The Laodiceans needed to come back to Jesus to be blessed by Him (3:18,20).

Our loving Lord has graciously provided a way out of the muck of sin. The Lord's message to the spiritual train wreck known as the church in Laodicea, is a reminder to every congregation in the body of the Christ: what happened to them can happen to one or all, so we had best beware and be on guard (1 Cor. 10:12). If I had to choose, I would rather hear about the faithfulness of the ancient church in Philippi, but if I will open my eyes, I can also learn valuable lessons from the church of the Laodiceans.

"As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:19-20

We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE."
