Major Upheaval in Israel?

Beyond Babylon ^ | 05-01-07 | David Ben-Ariel

Will an EARTHQUAKE shake Israel to its foundations and rock the world? Would the destruction of the Western/Wailing Wall and the demolition of the "Dome of the Rock" and Al-Aksa mosques—by an ACT OF GOD—serve further notice that it's time to build the Temple? The Western Wall would have served its purpose and an earthquake could clear the way for major changes: May the Israelis have a new attitude and act upon it, saying, "Let's move on up to where we should be praying: in the Temple upon the Temple Mount!"

I believe a miracle—a supernatural disaster (a blessing in disguise)—will take care of the militant Muslim symbols of occupation. I’m not calling for any individual to blow up the mosques! However, if the Israeli government finally gets its act together and decides to exercise Israeli Sovereignty over the Temple Mount, I'd gladly encourage them to restore Judaism's holiest site to the Jews. After all, this June will mark the 40th anniversary of the initial liberation of the Temple Mount during the Six Day War - a missed opportunity to reclaim the holiest land in the Promised Land of Israel for the People of Israel.

Despite this public record, I've been deported from Israel (as reported on the front page of The Jerusalem Post, January 8, 1996) for alleged involvement in a plot to "damage the mosques." Before my deportation I was held in Jerusalem’s corrupt Russian Compound for three weeks as a politico-religious prisoner. I’m still fighting this injustice and, with God’s help, expect to return and receive Israeli citizenship.

Barry Chamish, in his book,Traitors and Carpetbaggers in the Promised Land, attributes my unjust deportation to an article published in The Traveller magazine in Jerusalem, where I expose a Vatican-German plot to take over the Temple Mount in the Old City for their nefarious purposes.

The Temple is to serve as a national reminder that God’s central to our existence and should be our focal point. It’s understood that the mere presence of a Temple doesn’t necessarily mean that God's Presence is with us. Twice God’s glory left the Temple and Judah was scattered. To avoid making the same mistake again, we must insure God finds a stable home in our loving hearts and minds—not only welcomed in, but invited to stay (Jer. 31:33).

Will the sacrifices start soon? The Cornerstone get put in place and the Temple rebuilt? And will Europe's new Antiochus Epiphanes force his way into the Temple and proclaim himself "God"? Supposedly the pope wants Jerusalem to become an "international city"—in reality he plans on making it his cultic headquarters based upon the accursed UN Resolution 181! Who would stand up and oppose this intrusion? Who would denounce this gross violation of Israeli sovereignty? Who would speak out against this folly? "Elijah…" - the chief spokesman between Two Witnesses who will testify from Jerusalem before a world court.

A House of Prayer for All Peoples?

A House of Prayer for All Peoples?

By David Ben-Ariel

On Simchat Torah (Festival of the Rejoicing of the Law/Last Great Day) I went up to the Temple Mount with my Bible to pray. Although I do not usually wear a kippa (skull cap), I took one with me.

My first challenge was to pass the guards near the Temple Mount entrance; if they saw me with my Bible they would not let me enter. I silently prayed all the way up to the site where God's Temple stood twice, and will be rebuilt for a third and final time, that I would be able to go in. I got past the guards.

You say Jewish guards prevent Christians and Jews from exercising their religious right to pray on the Temple Mount? That's right! Only Muslims have unlimited access to Judaism's most holy site. Only the Koran is permitted within. The Tanach (Jewish Scripture, known to much of the world as the "Old Testament") and Christian Scriptures (the New Testament) are forbidden. Yet Israel claims to respect the religious rights of all people.

Israel has no law against Christians and Jews praying or reading scriptures on the Temple Mount. However, it does have an unwritten agreement with the Wakf (Muslim religious authorities) prohibiting this. No sign is posted, stating: "Warning! Christian and Jewish prayers are forbidden! Bibles not allowed inside by Muslim religious authorities. Proceed with caution!"

I do not accept that Moslems have the authority to forbid me from reading appropriate Psalms or the New Testament account of Jesus celebrating the Water Libation Ceremony (Psalms 120-134, John 7:37). My question was, where should I read those passages? I ended up between the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aksa mosque, just to the right of the place where Moslems wash their hands and feet. I was on the other side of the raised platform there, if you face the Mosque of Omar.

First, I nervously sat and read. Then I put on my black kippa, stood up and started to read for a few minutes until I became distracted by fears of being attacked by the Moslem guards. I sat down, took off my kippa, and continued to read. Then one of the Wakf guards noticed me and asked what I was reading. I replied, "Yes, it's my book." He took it from me and saw that it was a Bible. He demanded to know if I was a Christian or a Jew. When I told him I was a Christian, he asked me why I was wearing a magen David (Star of David).

I did not feel obligated to explain that it was a gift from my mother and youngest sister, and told him, "Give back my Bible." He ordered, "You have to leave now!" Again I said, "Give back my Bible." When he refused, I demanded its return more loudly. He raised his fist as if to hit me and warned me not to raise my voice. This attracted the attention of some passing tourists, who gathered around us. I told them, "This thief has stolen my Bible!"

The Wakf guard told me to leave again and threatened to hit me. He said he would give me back my Bible outside. Since there was no reason for him to confiscate it in the first place, I told him to return it to me then and there and I would go. At this point he radioed an Israeli policeman, who came running. The Israeli handcuffed my right hand, which I raised and showed to the assembled tourists, saying, "This is Israeli democracy!" I asked the Israeli repeatedly, "What law have I broken?" knowing that I had not broken any law, yet was being treated like a common criminal.

I am shocked that Jewish police in the Jewish State help maintain Moslem domination of the Temple Mount by suppressing Christian and Jewish religious rights there. Is it the Temple Mount or the Mosque Mount?

An Israeli policeman led me away. I told the bewildered tourists, "This is what happens to a Christian or Jew who wants to read the Bible where the holy Temple stood. This is what happens to Christians and Jews who want to pray where our prophets and patriarchs prayed, and where Jesus and his disciples taught."

Why the exclusive religious rights for Moslems? And Israel wants to hand over control of Rachel's Tomb, Bethlehem and Joseph's Tomb to Moslem religious authorities?! Are they crazy or what?

In the police station at the Western Wall Plaza, the officers wanted to know who else was with me. They were relieved to find that I was alone. (They should have known I was performing a mitzva [religious commandment]). The police said they arrested me for my own protection. I told them they should have arrested the Wakf guard who threatened me! Why not remove, once and for all, the threat of Moslem violence? Why reward Moslem extremists?

The police laughed in disbelief when I told them I am a Christian and that my Bible includes the New Testament, which they returned to me. A Druze officer said, "But you must respect other religions." He remained silent when I asked, "Where was their respect for mine?" I explained that our Biblical goal is to enable everyone to come and pray on the mountain where God's Temple stood, and in the Temple when it will be rebuilt. It is prophesied to become a "House of Prayer" for all nations.

The police told me I could return to the Temple Mount as a tourist - without my Bible. I said that I do not want to go up there only as a "tourist;" I want to pray there. When they asked me how many times I had been up there, I said "a thousand." They wrote that down in their report. They said I could make a short statement for the record. I said something to this effect: "Is it too much to ask during this 3,000th anniversary of King David's Jerusalem to peacefully read his inspired words on the Temple Mount?"

When I left the police compound, one of the policemen told me I did a good thing. Once outside, I was met by some Jews who saw the incident and congratulated me.

I pray that this unfortunate encounter will raise awareness of Israel's religious discrimination against Christians and Jews. The situation must change. It will when enough people cry "Basta!" (Italian for "enough!").

May the day soon come when Christians, Jews and Moslems can say: "My House shall be called a house of prayer for all Peoples." (Isaiah 56:7). The Bible says

"Moreover, concerning the stranger, who (is) not of Your people Israel, but comes out of a far country for Your Name's sake. For they shall hear of Your great Name, and of your mighty hand, and of Your outstretched arm, and will come and pray toward this house. Hear you in heaven Your dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to You for, that all peoples of the earth may know Your Name, to fear you, as (do) Your people Israel, that they may know that Your Name is called upon this house that I have built." (I Kings 8:41-43)

"And the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord to serve Him and to love the name of the Lord, to be His servants - everyone who observes the Sabbath - I will bring them to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon My altar, for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples." (Isaiah 56:6-7)

"And it shall come to pass at the end of days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established at the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, and peoples shall flow to it. And many nations shall go, and say, 'Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord...and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths,' for out of Zion shall go forth the Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem." (Micah 4:1-2)

Ariel Sharon: Return to the Temple Mount!

Ariel Sharon: Return to the Temple Mount!
By David Ben-Ariel

Dear PM Ariel Sharon:

As you are very much aware, Lubavitcher rabbis presented to the Court of High Heaven a petition against you, signed, sealed and delivered. You have incensed the Great G-d in the Highest Heaven and His servants with your stench of betrayal, despising your biblical birthright and inheritance and expressing a willingness to transfer Jews for a g-dless peace that will only invite bloody German-Jesuit EU intervention and disaster for British-Israelites and Jews worldwide!

The Master of the Universe empowered you to become prime minister of His Homeland and took you from your ranch in the Negev to help shepherd His People and your brethren and protect them from the many wolves within and without the Holy Land. Instead you have been branded as one who would dismember our Mother (Israel) and dismantle the Temple (Jerusalem and the Temple Mount) by following the blind leadership of President George W. Bush with his road map that seeks to throw away the biblical blueprint for a just and lasting solution for peace in the Middle East!

You were rewarded with your position as leader of Judah, sanctified from the day you set foot upon G-d's Holy Mountain and reminded the whole world of its supreme importance. You were to use your G-d given power and influence as a Chariot/Tank of G-d to roll over and crush the enemies of G-d and Israel fearlessly, like the Warrior-King David fought the battles of the L-RD! You were to strike terror into the wicked heart of Amalek and faithfully destroy every threat to the Land and People of Israel (Zech. 12:6) with G-d as your fiery shield! (Zech. 12:6).

Just because you're not religious doesn't mean the Great G-d of the Hebrews can't use you to help fulfill His plans and purpose for Jerusalem and Israel. You should have joined hands with your British-Israelite brethren, and encouraged them to utterly defeat our common terrorist foes! (Zech. 9:13). G-D WOULD HAVE BLESSED YOUR EFFORTS!

You can redeem yourself, save your skin and salvation! How? RETURN TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT THAT EMPOWERED YOU! Clearly stake Israeli sovereignty over it in no uncertain terms, throwing down the wicked Nazi Wakf from Judaism's holiest site, just as the Romans evicted the corrupt Sanhedrin from the noble enclosure!

Make aliyah to Har HaBayit with Gershon Salomon, Chaim Richman, Rav Ariel and other men of G-d and pray for Israel's deliverance and receive it! Only then would the aforementioned rabbis letter be returned to sender, marked null and void. This opportunity of a lifetime is yours for the asking. It's your responsibility. It's your choice!

Shema Ariel Sharon: Choose life and live and prosper!

For Zion's Sake,

David Ben-Ariel

Ron Paul Signs Pledge to Never Raise Your Taxes

CONTACT: Jesse Benton, 703-650-9559

April 25, 2007

ARLINGTON, VA – Presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX) today pledged to the American people that as president he would veto any bill that raised their taxes. The pledge, sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform, is offered to all presidential candidates as a way to distinguishes real fiscal conservatives from tax-and-spend, big-government politicians.

After signing the pledge, Dr. Paul issued the following statement:

“Signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge was easy for me. During my 10 terms in Congress, I have never voted to raise taxes, and I never will. To be honest, I can’t understand why a Republican wouldn’t sign it.

“Liberty is best served when Americans keep more of their own, hard-earned money. I think taxes should be as low as possible. As president, I would work to lower taxes for every American as I have for years as a member of Congress.”

Among the antiwar candidates, Ron Paul again is the best, genuinely committed to individual liberty, limited government, and constitutional democracy. In contrast to virtually all of his fellow congressman, Rep. Paul actually asks whether there is constitutional warrant for proposed federal regulation and spending."

PBA Ruling is Not a Pro-Life Victory

PBA Ruling is Not a Pro-Life Victory

Pastor Bob Enyart / The Covenant News:
Shirley Dobson said it correctly to talk show host Hugh Hewitt the day after the ruling, that pro-life organizations have fought "for fifteen years" to achieve this partial-birth abortion ban. The tragedy, which she was unaware of, but which Hewitt as a lawyer should have known, is that not a single abortion, late-term or otherwise, has been or will be, canceled due to this ban.

Supreme Court Split 7-2 - Pro-Abortion Majority

Christian Gallery Editorial:
Why Court's Confusing Partial Birth Abortion Decision Can Kill Babies By the Millions - A brief added to the partial birth abortion decision by Justices Thomas and Scalia helps us see the true meaning of the Court's decision. If you will study the brief added by those two Justices, it will become obvious that instead of the recent decision showing a 5-4 Supreme Court split in favor of overturning legalized abortion, the recent ruling actually reveals that the Supreme Court as presently constituted is split 7-2, with the majority composed of Supreme Court Justices who have no intention whatsoever of overturning Roe v. Wade. Why is Justices Scalia and Thomas's brief so revealing, so significant? Listen to what Justice Thomas wrote, with Scalia agreeing, "I write separately to reiterate my view that the Court's abortion jurisprudence, including Casey and Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) has no basis in the Constitution."

On The Partial Birth Abortion Ruling

Chuck Baldwin / The Covenant News:
In responding to the euphoria of many pro-life groups' claiming that the PBA decision has begun the legal process of overturning Roe, the Mobile Press-Register said, "The court has done no such thing; and in the majority opinion, justices pointed out that the ban doesn't violate a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy." The Press-Register got it exactly right.

Jesus and the Jews

Beyond Babylon ^ | 04-28-07 | David Ben-Ariel

Renegade Jews, who became avowed atheists, apostates or professing Christians, projected their PERVERSION on others and captivated whole countries with wrong ideas. Those false Messiahs have held men hostage to their thoughts, and imprisoned others with poisonous ideologies!

Thanks to Torah-Jews— those who follow and believe the Bible (as they understand it) — God has preserved for us the knowledge and identity of the seventh day Sabbath and holy days and when to keep them (Rom. 3:2).

Only by those who don't know or reject the plain truth that the Bible prophesied so many revivals of Rome and that they've always taken place upon the continent of Europe, under the evil influence of the Roman Catholic Cult. The Babylonian Mystery religion has always misled the drunken politicians in this danse macabre; the Roman Catholic Church has always seduced leaders to engage in such an unholy union of Church and State to fulfill their fantasies.

The United States is Israelite in origin (specifically the Anglo-Saxon and Northwestern European Americans) - a part of the "Lost Ten Tribes" - and is foretold to be defeated and deported by that final revival of the Roman Empire forging ahead in Europe today as the "European Union." Such a new European superpower - the United States of Europe - will be led by the Beast, the so-called Anti-Christ.

Shimon Peres Came to Power Over Rabin's Dead Body

Shimon Peres Came to Power Over Rabin's Dead Body
By David Ben-Ariel

I met Yitzhak Rabin in the Israeli Parliament in 1982 during Hanukkah. I was able to talk with him briefly and mention I was associated with Ambassador College in Pasadena, California.

That was a tactful way of saying I'm a Christian since I knew he personally knew Herbert W. Armstrong and the Worldwide Church of God, including the Plain Truth magazine. Herbert Armstrong had formerly presented him with a gift of Steuben crystal.

I was a volunteer at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan at the time, in Northern Israel near Haifa. Just so happens Yitzhak Rabin had lived there for over a year in the late '50s.

I initially considered Prime Minister Rabin - born in Jerusalem - a traitor for surrendering too much to sworn Arab enemies who had not changed their goal of genocide, only their tactics; for going against clear security concerns he once expressed. (I was in a cafe in Jerusalem when he was shot in Tel Aviv). I refused to attend his funeral, although I had attended the funeral of Meir Kahane, former Israeli parliament member and rabbi, some years before.

Later I found out Yitzhak Rabin was apparently being pressured by the dark powers that be to continue to go against what he knew was wrong and that he resisted and was therefore MURDERED by them for coming to his senses. Shimon Peres came to power over the dead body of Yitzhak Rabin.

I do not believe Yigal Amir murdered Rabin. ( I've met Avishai Raviv several times at demonstrations - he's the government agent provocateur who goaded Yigal Amir to murder Rabin). Yigal Amir is a patsy, the fall-guy, as is thoroughly expounded upon in Who Killed Yitzhak Rabin? by Barry Chamish, his first book that broached the subject and clearly indicts the traitor and murderer suspect Shimon Peres (whose Hebrew name appropriately means vulture).

I repeatedly condemn Shimon Peres as a kapo of compromise, a prostitute who serves his German-Jesuit EU masters, a traitor who has sold and is selling out Jews, Jerusalem and Israel and say as much in my book Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall. I am on public record against his perfidy and continue to expose him. He was the Bolshevik in charge during my unjust deportation, who was very much aware of an article published in Jerusalem where I mention the EU plans for Jerusalem's occupation.

The Israeli Secret Police (six men interrogated me) had a computer disk with Beyond Babylon on it and said many would read it and examine it during their investigation of me during their wild goose chase. I told them to make sure then Prime Minister Shimon Peres read it.

New evidence further PROVES Yigal Amir did not kill Yitzhak Rabin. It's past time Israelis demand: REOPEN THE RABIN FILE. And now with the release of the Kempler video, many are doing just that!

Chuck Baldwin: My Speech in Boise, Idaho

My Speech In Boise, Idaho
by Chuck Baldwin
April 24, 2007

Last week, I was privileged to speak before the National Committee Meeting of the Constitution Party assembled in Boise, Idaho. After a two-day whirlwind speaking tour in Utah earlier in the week, I delivered this address to the assemblage in Boise. This is an edited version of that Idaho speech.

Christians tell me constantly, "Chuck, we must elect a Christian President." And it seems that all they look for and all they expect from their civil magistrates is that he or she make public profession of Christianity. But most every politician professes to be a Christian--at least every two years, or in the case of a presidential candidate, every four years.

However, it is incredible how gullible and naïve today's Christians have become. I submit to you that had Al Gore or John Kerry been elected President and promoted many of the policies and practices of George W. Bush, the Religious Right would have been up in arms years ago.

But because a "Christian Republican" is in the White House, he is given a free pass on foible after foible, dereliction after dereliction, and compromise after compromise. Beyond that, when someone dares to criticize the unconstitutional policies of this President, Christians attack the messenger with a vengeance.

For example, I had a prominent leader of the Religious Right command me, not ask or beseech me, mind you, but demand that I stop criticizing the policies of President Bush. No discussion of the issues. No specific example of how I misrepresented the truth or any appeal to reason, just a bold demand to "stop it."

But listen to Theodore Roosevelt:

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or anyone else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

Roosevelt understood what we all need to understand: America was not founded upon a president or political party. The founding principles of America are contained in three documents: the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

The principles of our founding documents created an independent and limited government that recognized the authority of man's Creator and our ultimate submission to Him. The Declaration of Independence in Paragraph 1 refers to "The Laws of Nature and of Nature's God."

What Jefferson was addressing was Natural Law. Our Founding Fathers had all studied the writings of John Locke and other philosophers of the period who taught extensively about Natural Law. They all understood it. Natural Law is the instinctive understanding of basic morality, the innate understanding of good and evil as provided by our Creator.

William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Law were the chief influence upon the legal philosophy of America's founders. Those commentaries formed the most authoritative manual of law for over 100 years following the War for Independence.

Blackstone wrote: "Man, considered as a creature, must necessarily be subject to the laws of his Creator, for he is entirely a dependent being . . .. And consequently, as man depends absolutely upon his Maker for everything, it is necessary that he should in all points conform to his Maker's will. This will of his Maker is called the law of nature."

For the first time in the history of the world, a nation inculcated the Creator's will for the government of mankind in its founding documents. Therefore, it does not matter what a politician's personal denominational affiliation might be or what his Christian profession might be. What matters is that he or she supports, protects, and defends the Constitution of the United States.

I realize what I am about to say will surprise many Christians, but I would far rather elect an unbeliever who will support, protect, and defend the Constitution than a believer who will not support, protect, and defend the Constitution. The oath of office is to the Constitution. That is a civil magistrate's contract with us--the American people.

For example, when I hire a plumber or electrician I am not particularly interested in his church affiliation or personal religious profession. I am contracting a job with him, and at the end of the day, I want my plumbing to work and my lights to turn on.

When we elect a constitutional office holder, we want him to do what his contract with us demands: he must honor his oath to support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. And what most Christians don't seem to understand is that our founding principles implement the Maker's will in the body politic.

The Declaration in Paragraph 2 states, that all men are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

Notice, Jefferson wrote that God, not government, is the author and grantor of independence. The Declaration rightly said that the purpose of government was to "secure [protect] these Rights." This is all part of "Natural Law."

What Christians further misunderstand is that the Declaration and Constitution contain the principles of Natural Law as taught in God's revealed Word, the Bible.

For example, "Natural Law" itself is found in Rom. 2:14-16. That God is the giver life is found in Gen. 2:7. That God grants liberty is found in Gal. 5:1. The Pursuit of Happiness is found in Eccl. 3:13.

Even the Constitution recognizes the worship day of the Christian God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Article 1. Section. 7. Paragraph 2 states, "If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) . . ." Notice, the U.S. Constitution exempts Sunday--the day Christians set aside to worship Jesus Christ--from being a legal business day.

Furthermore, Article 7 of the Constitution states, "Done in Convention by the unanimous consent of the States present, the seventeenth day of September in the year of OUR LORD [emphasis added] one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the twelfth." Notice, the U.S. Constitution concludes by identifying the Lord Jesus Christ as being "our Lord."

The Bill of Rights, too, is built upon "the Laws of Nature's God."

Colonial Christians understood the command of Scriptures to "preach the Gospel" and to "not [forsake] the assembling of ourselves together." Thus, the 1st Amendment protects the right of men to peaceably assemble, and the freedom of speech, along with the freedom of religion, and the freedom of the press.

What about the 2nd Amendment? Where does one find the right to keep and bear arms in the Scriptures?

Look no further than Luke 11:21, where Jesus said, "When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace." I know at one point Jesus told Peter to put up his sword, but He did not tell him to give up his sword. In fact, on another occasion Jesus said the time would come when, if we did not own a sword, we should sell what we have, if necessary, and buy one.

The Roman sword was the equivalent of a modern handgun. It was the most convenient and effective weapon of self-defense available at the time.

Now, I don't know about anyone else, but I'll take the word of Jesus over the word of Hillary any day!

Notice, too, that the 4th Amendment, the law that protects the "right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures . . ." is found in Deut. 24:10,11.

Furthermore, the 8th Amendment, the law that protects us against "cruel and unusual punishment" is found in Deut. 15:2,3. Even our three coequal branches of government are patterned after the three positional offices of Christ as found in Isaiah 33:22.

I said all of that to say this: When we seek to elect men and women to public office, we don't need them to give lip service to a religious profession; we need them to support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

I am also personally convinced that such a person will not often be found in the two major parties, but will most certainly be found in the Constitution Party. Therefore, our nominee (whoever he is), must be willing to clearly articulate the fundamental issues attacking constitutional government today. First on the list is the surrender of our borders and national sovereignty.

Take illegal immigration. The real issue is taxes and the creation of international government. The political elite need cheap labor and cheap services so as to depress wages and consumer costs or else Americans would not be able to afford to pay these outlandish, ungodly taxes.

Furthermore, make no mistake about this: the international corporate elite need regional government in order to manage the global economy they are constructing. But all that stops when a CP candidate takes office. The day a Constitution Party candidate is sworn in as President of these United States, the SPP, the North American Community, the NAFTA super highway, and the FTAA will come crashing down.

The second salient issue to which we must be faithful is the right to keep and bear arms. Had Virginia Tech University not prohibited its faculty and adult students from their lawful right to keep and bear arms, there would have been no massacre.

A CP President must be willing to not only reject any new gun control laws, he must be willing to undo the unconstitutional gun control laws enacted by former administrations.

The third key issue is the right to life. The Constitution Party is the only national party that is unapologetically 100% pro-life. Therefore, our nominee must be willing to use the bully pulpit to push Congress into supporting Congressman Ron Paul's Sanctity of Human Life bill, which recognizes the personhood of unborn babies from the moment of conception.

Furthermore, our candidate must be prepared to tell the nation that no longer will the federal government use the Bill of Rights as toilet paper. We will respect the 4th Amendment, which protects the American people against illegal searches and seizures. Therefore, with a Constitutionist in the White House, federal police agencies will not be allowed to tap our phone lines, read our emails and faxes, or monitor our cell phones without due cause and judicial oversight. In other words, the day a CP nominee takes the oath of office, the Orwellian Patriot Act will head to the dumpster.

Fifthly, a Constitution Party president will stop the unconstitutional use of our brave men and women in uniform to fight unprovoked, preemptive wars. That means, the day our nominee takes the oath of office, our troops will start coming home from Iraq. Furthermore, we will no longer allow our troops to be used as nation-builders for big oil companies and international bankers, and neither will they be used as policemen for the United Nations.

Speaking of the United Nations, the day a CP nominee is elected President, that bunch of Socialists and Marxists at the UN will begin packing their bags and looking for a new home.

And one more thing: the day our nominee is sworn in as President, he will begin enforcing U.S. law found in Section 654, Title 10, which was passed with veto-proof bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress in 1993 and found constitutional by several federal courts, which bars homosexuals from serving in the Armed Forces.

In conclusion let me say, when those brave men stood on Lexington Green and Concord Bridge, and when Travis and Bowie fought to the death on the ramparts of the Alamo, they were not fighting for some "Lesser of Two Evils" mantra. They pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor--and signed that pledge in blood--to the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. And Ladies and Gentlemen of the Constitution Party, that is exactly what each and every one of us must be willing to do.

Happy Independence Day Israel!

A Jewish Homeland (from a Christian-Zionist viewpoint)
Jews Should Follow Judaism to Israel! (according to the Ramban)

A Jewish Homeland

A Jewish Homeland

Did God condemn the Jews to wander until Messiah comes but blessed every other tribe of Israel with a national inheritance? Does that make sense? Is God fair? Is Israel so much holier than Judah? Or could it be, as Herbert W. Armstrong taught in The United States and Britain in Prophecy, that Israel's punishment was to last for 2,520 years (Lev. 26:21)?

After that time, around A.D. 1800, because of Abraham's obedience, God decreed that He would bestow His blessings. Did that 2,520 years of punishment apply only to the Northern Kingdom of Israel? Does God have a double standard? Once God removed the Kingdom of Judah wasn't it His responsibility to restore it at the appointed time?

Did the Anglo-Saxon and European peoples take these prophecies into their own hands? Were they able to create their countries with no divine mandate, signs and miracles, or prophetic leadership?

For those who have eyes to see, the biblical countries came into being by divine mandate since only God determines the rise and fall of nations. Many of our founding fathers were inspired of God, in spite of themselves, to accomplish our Manifest Destiny. God's overall plan is greater than any single man.

God stirred up Theodore Herzl to inspire the Jewish people with the biblical idea of having a Jewish State again. He wrote and spoke about it extensively, planting the seed of holy imagination in Judah's mind.

Later, during the British Mandate, the British began to "look favorably" upon the establishment of an independent Jewish Homeland, watering that holy seed. The Balfour Declaration was part of a divine mandate to restore Judah to "Palestine" (a satanic word the Romans used in an evil attempt to erase our father Israel's name off the map - Ps. 83:4).

God utilized political Zionism for His purposes, just as He utilized America's rebellion against the English throne. On the surface, neither were so special or righteous, but both were instrumental in fulfilling prophecy.

As for the treatment of the former inhabitants of the lands that God decreed for His people, whether Arabs or Indians, I'm sure the Canaanites would offer scathing condemnation but others would see God's purpose being worked out, however imperfectly to limited human vision. God addresses any injustices in His own way and time (2 Sam. 21:1-14), but dismisses those charges that exaggerate or exploit them to deny our basic biblical right to the lands He has chosen for us (Acts 17:26).

As the Greeks are representative of all Gentiles, so the Jews are representative of all Israel. It is to Israel, specifically to the Jews, that God has committed the "oracles of God" (Rom. 3:2). The oracles of God includes the DIVINE COVENANTS AND PROMISES (Rom. 9:4-5). The Jews hold, in trust, the biblical land deed/covenant to the Holy Land for all Twelve Tribes.

GOD MADE A LAND-COVENANT WITH ISRAEL (Gen. 12:7; 13:15; 15:18; 17:8; 26:3; 28:13; 35:12). Not once did God promise the Holy Land to the "Palestinians" so Bible-believers must reject their illegitimate claims. Those who attempt to justify foreign occupation of our land or terrible treatment of our people because of our sins are condemning themselves before God (Isa. 47:6; Jer. 50:7; Zech. 1:15).

There are many Scriptures that speak of a REPRESENTATIVE AMOUNT OF JEWS living in Israel before the return of the King Messiah, Yeshua. Shamefully, God's ministers, and consequently the Church of God, have often been blind to what God is doing in Israel today. We've failed to see the wonders that God has wrought, the types that foretell of greater things to come.

We've been ignorant of the biblical principle of duality and have nit-picked the prophecies demanding all or nothing. With that limited vision we would've argued with Peter on Pentecost/Shavuot about Joel's prophecy being fulfilled. However, it certainly was - in part (Acts 2:16-21).

Consider the following:

God promised to "save Zion, and build the cities of Judah" (Ps. 69:35). (He doesn't refer to them as "Palestinian" cities) God has faithfully done that by rewarding Jewish efforts and respecting their blood, sweat and tears (Isa. 61:4; Ps. 102:13-14). God has used the Jews to make the desert blossom as the rose and protected them during this conversion process, just as Moses requested (Deut. 33:7).

I praise God for having blessed me, from Toledo to Jerusalem, to have lived in eight kibbutzim (collective-farms) throughout Israel that have helped to fulfill these pioneer prophecies, including during Operation Desert Storm.

God clearly prophesied through Zechariah chapters 12-14 that the Jews would again be living in their ancient capital of Jerusalem, with their own rulers, and that the "United Nations" would oppose them and ultimately be defeated.

Zechariah also shows the long-awaited recognition of Yeshua by the Jews as God's Son and Judah's Firstborn and the heartfelt repentance of the political (House of David) and religious (House of Levi) establishment. In fact, Yeshua said that the Jews in Jerusalem wouldn't see Him again until they had this necessary change of heart (Matt. 23:39).

Zechariah also reveals that the Jews would again be a formidable military power in the Middle East with God working in and through and for them. Many Israelis know that God has been their true General and performed many miracles on their behalf. I've heard Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful, recount his miraculous experience of divine protection on the Golan Heights many times.

It's important to note that God has inspired the holy prophets to write about real flesh and blood Jews living in Israel - not Jewish imposters.

Why? Because those suffering from the sickness of anti-Semitism are out to spread doubt and confusion about Israel's Jewish identity. They publish slanderous hate literature attempting to poison minds against the Jews by promoting quack racial theories and Nazi propaganda.

It's nothing less than Satan's desperate efforts to deny that God has the power to fulfill prophecy. Bible-believers reject their bitter lies knowing God's Word is true.

Zechariah also agrees with the New Testament prophecies that reveal Jerusalem as a thriving Jewish city that will suffer under a harsh Gentile occupation just before the Messiah arrives in time (Rev. 11:2; Zech. 14:2).

Yeshua will liberate Jerusalem and secure it as His headquarters. Jerusalem, the site of David's Throne, will be the seat of God's government. Yeshua, like the prophet Daniel, foresaw that Jewish-Christians would be living and working in a Jewish State. They'll witness the historic restoration of animal sacrifices and their abrupt cessation by an evil European force, quickly followed by the "abomination of desolation" that triggers World War III (Matt. 24:15-16; Dan. 12:11).

Meanwhile, the Church of God (or select individuals if the Church continues to shirk its responsibility) must ANNOUNCE TO THE CITIES OF JUDAH (the prophecy doesn't refer to them as "Palestinian" cities or "Israeli-occupied") that Messiah's about to appear!

We're to boldly offer Judah the hope and comfort that a TRUE PEACE is coming and to get ready for it (Isa. 40:1-3). We're to help prepare Israel for the shock of a GLORIFIED YESHUA REVEALED AT LAST (vs. 5) and lead them to expect an audience with a DIVINE KING whose ROYAL RADIANCE will illuminate every nation.

We must identify Yeshua as the "Son of Man" from Heaven that Daniel previewed (Dan. 7:13-14), and stress that Zechariah gave an "eyewitness account" of this same DIVINE SAVIOR descending from Heaven to reign as LORD from Jerusalem over the whole earth (Zech. 14:3-4, 9, 16).

Remember this is no small task, and is quite controversial, since the Jews are still looking forward to a human leader to save them from all their troubles.

The Two Witnesses will be the most influential in reaching the cities of Judah from Jerusalem (Isa. 40:9; 52:7-8), effectively knowing their mindset and culture (unlike so many others), but the Church of God should still do what we can now.

These exciting Scriptures clearly prove (they're not assumptions) that with God nothing is impossible: the Jews would again be living in an independent Israel, resurrected from the dust of history just prior to Messiah's coming, with Jerusalem as their capital, complete with an effective fighting force, having been restored to their ancient cities and energetically transforming the land from barren desert to productive fields - all with God's blessing (Ezek. 37:1-14).

These Scriptures glorify God as faithful and we should praise Him that His Word is good and true. Amen.

Israelis know treacherous Labor Zionists are dangerous liars

Here is a response to Ex-Shabak Chief Ayalon: Har-Shefi Unaware of Rabin Murder Plot from my Israeli friend, Shmuel HaLevi, in Karmiel, Israel:
David Shalom!
It is by now common knowledge that the unJewish system has been brutally persecuting Jews and Christians for many years.
They allowed Arafat to deChristianize Bethlehem and look the other way in Nazareth.
You, yourself, can tell a very clear story on the fact we refer to.
Just a short while ago one Kollek, a purported icon of the early "Jewish agency"... was exposed as being nothing else than a voluntary informer to the British Mandate police against Jewish Patriots. In all probability MANY of the so called "labor Zionists" have been so, if not outright murderers.
With the advent of the Osloid filth, the later day gruesome specimens became "partners" for the Arafat deviant gangs. Not for peace but as a proxy for them to murder Jews.
In that context, why would they not fabricate accusations against Miss Har-Shefi. I know of a new way they use but will for now keep it.
The bottom line is that unless all, ALL of that layer is lanced out of the system and into cells pending a NEW COURTS SYSTEM to take care of them, I would not be surprised if "desaparecidos" also turn out to be the unJews way of silencing the Patriots.
The Pulitzer Prize winner and winning photo is what it is all about. Monstrous degenerates against the Jewish Nation.

Our organization has now acquired the NAME OF "HASHKEM" and I recommend to you to visit our Site. Hashkem
We mean it...
Love from Zion to all friends.

Shema Bloody Knesset: Break Your Conspiracy of Silence about the Rabin Assassination!

Ezekiel 22
Sins of Jerusalem
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 "Now, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? Yes, show her all her abominations! 3 Then say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "The city sheds blood in her own midst... 4 You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed...6 "Look, the princes of Israel: each one has used his power to shed blood in you... 9 In you are men who slander to cause bloodshed... 12 In you they take bribes to shed blood; you take usury and increase; you have made profit from your neighbors by extortion, and have forgotten Me," says the Lord GOD. 13 "Behold, therefore, I beat My fists at the dishonest profit which you have made, and at the bloodshed which has been in your midst. 14 Can your heart endure, or can your hands remain strong, in the days when I shall deal with you? I, the LORD, have spoken, and will do it. 15 I will scatter you among the nations, disperse you throughout the countries, and remove your filthiness completely from you. 16 You shall defile yourself in the sight of the nations; then you shall know that I am the LORD.""

New evidence further PROVES Yigal Amir did not kill Yitzhak Rabin. It's past time Israelis demand: REOPEN THE RABIN FILE. And now with the release of the Kempler video, many are doing just that!
