From Jew to Jew: Why We Should Oppose Israeli Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza

According to Ted Lang, The Price of Liberty:
Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism: the latter term has been corrupted to where today its use is as a powerful word-weapon-smear-tactic to prevent Americans from discussing, realizing, and reacting to the horrific danger that Zionism presents to not only our nation, but also to the peace, safety and freedom of the entire world.
"The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with the secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents." - Sir Benjamin Disraeli, England's statesman (Jewish British Prime Minister).
Few Americans are aware that the statist Jews, who created Israel, were under the direction, funding, support and protection of the Rothschild-led international banking cartel. And this group of secret, international bankers, often referred to as the Illuminati, was behind the Balfour Declaration, the Versailles Treaty, and America's involvement in both World Wars I and II. Millions of people have been murdered, maimed, enslaved and impoverished by this secret, Zionist and communist banking cartel. The Bush family has been on board with them and has been a key part of their operation since the 1920s, especially in regard to their funding and support of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis" (see BBC report).
HAARETZ: Obama Picks Israeli Rahm Emanuel as Chief of Staff, November 6, 2008
Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who assisted the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) during the 1991 Iraq war and whose father was in Irgun, is a strong supporter of AIPAC; he personally introduced fellow Chicagoan Barack Obama to the organization's directors during the 2008 presidential campaign. "Rahm is the Democrats' Newt Gingrich," says Bruce Reed, who served with Emanuel in the Clinton White House. "He understands how much ideas matter, he always knows his message, he takes no prisoners, and he only plays to win." Friends and enemies agree that the key to Emanuel's success is his legendary intensity... the night after Clinton was elected, Emanuel was so angry at the President's enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, grabbed a steak knife and began rattling off a list of betrayers, shouting "Dead! . . . Dead! . . . Dead!" and plunging the knife into the table after every name. "When he was done, the table looked like a lunar landscape," one campaign veteran recalls. "It was like something out of The Godfather. But that's Rahm for you."

Obama's Speech to AIPAC, a Pro-Israel Lobby, March 2, 2007
Obama said that the primary way to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons is through talks and diplomacy, although he did not rule out military action.

Excerpt from Obama's AIPAC speech on March 2, 2007
"Our job is to renew the United States' efforts to help Israel achieve peace with its neighbors while remaining vigilant against those who do not share this vision. Our job is to do more than lay out another road map; our job is to rebuild the road to real peace and lasting security throughout the region. That effort begins with a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel: our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy. That will always be my starting point. And when we see all of the growing threats in the region—from Iran to Iraq to the resurgence of al-Qaeda to the reinvigoration of Hamas and Hezbollah—that loyalty and that friendship will guide me as we begin to lay the stones that will build the road that takes us from the current instability to lasting peace and security."

Excerpt from Obama's AIPAC speech on June 4, 2008
"I want you to know that today I'll be speaking from my heart and as a true friend of Israel. And I know that when I visit with AIPAC, I am among friends. Good friends. Friends who share my strong commitment to make sure that the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable today, tomorrow and forever. One of the many things that I admire about AIPAC is that you fight for this common cause from the bottom up. The lifeblood of AIPAC is here in this room—grass-roots activists of all ages, from all parts of the country, who come to Washington year after year to make your voices heard. Nothing reflects the face of AIPAC more than the 1,200 students who have traveled here to make it clear to the world that the bond between Israel and the United States is rooted in more than our shared national interests—it's rooted in the shared values and shared stories of our people. And as president, I will work with you to ensure that this bond is strengthened."

A Synopsis of Zionism and the Israel/Palestine Conflict

Historic PalestineFor thousands of years there was no conflict in Palestine. In the 19th century, the land of Palestine was inhabited by a multicultural population of Palestinian Arabs – approximately 86 percent Muslim, 10 percent Christian, and 4 percent Jewish. For centuries these groups lived in harmony.

In the late 1800s, a group in Europe decided to colonize this land. Known as "Zionists," this group consisted of an extremist minority of the Jewish population who wanted to create a Jewish homeland. They considered locations in Africa and the Americas before settling on Palestine, where the Jewish State of Israel was established in 1948.

Largely due to one-sided special-interest lobbying by AIPAC, the U.S. has given more funds to Israel than to any other nation: $85 billion in grants, loans and commodities since 1949, with an additional $50 billion in interest costs for advance payments, for a total cost of $135 billion or $23,240 per Israeli. During Fiscal Year 2011, the U.S. provided Israel with at least $8.2 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians.

Albert PikeAlbert Pike, 33° Mason, "Three World Wars"
"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the 'agentur' of the 'Illuminati' between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other." - Pike's 1871 Letter to Giuseppe Mazzini


Zionism is a political movement among an extremist minority of the Jewish population (although supported by some non-Jews) which maintains that the Jewish people constitute a nation and are entitled to a national homeland. Formally founded in 1897, Zionism embraced a variety of opinions in its early years on where that homeland might be established. From 1917 it focused on the establishment of a Jewish national homeland or state in Palestine, the location of the ancient Kingdom of Israel.

Nazi Support of Zionism

Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), the founder of modern Zionism, recognized that anti-Semitism would further his cause, the creation of a separate state for Jews. To solve the "Jewish Question," he maintained "we must, above all, make it an international political issue." Herzl wrote that Zionism offered the world a welcome "final solution of the Jewish question." In his "Diaries," page 19, Herzl stated "Anti-Semites will become our surest friends, anti-Semitic countries our allies."

Zionism was supported by the German SS and Gestapo. Hitler himself personally supported Zionism. During the 1930's, in cooperation with the German authorities, Zionist groups organized a network of some 40 camps throughout Germany where prospective settlers were trained for their new lives in Palestine. As late as 1942, Zionists operated at least one of these officially authorized "Kibbutz" training camps over which flew the blue and white banner, which would one day be adopted as the national flag of "Israel."

The Transfer Agreement (which promoted the emigration of German Jews to Palestine), implemented in 1933 and abandoned at the beginning of WWII, is an important example of the cooperation between Hitler's Germany and international Zionism. Through this agreement, Hitler's Third Reich did more than any other government during the 1930's to support Jewish development in Palestine and further the Zionist goals.

Hitler and the Zionists had a common goal: to create a world Jewish Ghetto as a solution to the Jewish Question.

The Zionist so-called "World Jewish Congress" declared war on the country of Germany, knowing that it would affect their Jewish brothers residing in that country who would be left without protection. When others tried to help them escape to other countries, the Zionist movement took actions which caused those countries to lock their doors to Jewish immigration. As a result of the Zionist influence, five ships of Jewish refugees from Germany arriving in the United States were turned back to the gas chambers.

Sacrificing Europe's Jews

The fundamental aim of the Zionist movement has been not to save Jewish lives but to create a "Jewish State" in Palestine. "The Jewish State of Israel was only established after the Holocaust had resulted in the murder of about 40% of European Jewry," writes Ami Isseroff, MidEastWeb for Coexistence.

When attempts were contemplated in the 1930's to change the immigration laws of the United States and Western Europe in order to provide token refuge for persecuted Jews of Europe, it was the Zionists who actively organized to stop these efforts.

Ben Gurion informed a meeting of Labor Zionists in Great Britain in 1938: "If I knew that it would be possible to save all the children in Germany by bringing them over to England and only half of them by transporting them to Eretz Israel, then I opt for the second alternative."

This obsession with colonizing Palestine and overwhelming the Arabs led the Zionist movement to oppose any rescue of the Jews facing extermination because the ability to deflect select manpower to Palestine would be impeded. From 1933 to 1935, the World Zionist Organization (WZO) turned down two-thirds of all the German Jews who applied for immigration certificates.

Berel Katznelson, editor of the Labor Zionist Davar, described the "cruel criteria of Zionism:" German Jews were too old to bear children in Palestine, lacked trades for building a Zionist colony, didn't speak Hebrew, and weren't Zionists. In place of these Jews facing extermination, the WZO brought to Palestine 6,000 trained young Zionists from the United States, Britain and other safe countries. Worse than this, the WZO not merely failed to seek any alternative for the Jews facing the Holocaust, the Zionist leadership opposed belligerently all efforts to find refuge for fleeing Jews.

As late as 1943, while the Jews of Europe were being exterminated in their millions, the U.S. Congress proposed to set up a commission to "study" the problem. Rabbi Stephen Wise, who was the principal American spokesperson for Zionism, came to Washington to testify against the rescue bill because it would divert attention from the colonization of Palestine.

This is the same Rabbi Wise who, in 1938, in his capacity as leader of the American Jewish Congress, wrote a letter in which he opposed any change in U.S. immigration laws which would enable Jews to find refuge. He stated: "It may interest you to know that some weeks ago the representatives of all the leading Jewish organizations met in conference... It was decided that no Jewish organization would, at this time, sponsor a bill which would in any way alter the immigration laws."

"Although there are those who refuse to accept the teachings of our rabbis and will continue to support the Zionist state, there are also many who are totally unaware of the history of Zionism and its contradiction to the beliefs of Torah-True Jews. From its inception, many rabbis warned of the potential dangers of Zionism and openly declared that all Jews loyal to G-d should stay away from it like one would from fire. They made their opinions clear to their congregants and to the general public. Their message was that Zionism is a chauvinistic racist phenomenon which has absolutely naught to do with Judaism. They publicly expressed that Zionism would definitely be detrimental to the well being of Jews and Gentiles and that its effects on the Jewish religion would be nothing other than destructive. Further, it would taint the reputation of Jewry as a whole and would cause utter confusion in the Jewish and non-Jewish communities. Judaism is a religion. Judaism is not a race or a nationality. That was and still remains the consensus amongst the rabbis."

"We were given the Holy Land by G-d in order to be able to study and practice the Torah without disturbance and to attain levels of holiness difficult to attain outside of the Holy Land. We abused the privilege and we were expelled. That is exactly what all Jews say in their prayers on every Jewish festival, 'Umipnay chatoenu golinu mayartsaynu'—'Because of our sins, we were expelled from our land.'"

"We have been forsworn by G-d 'not to enter the Holy Land as a body before the predestined time;' 'not to rebel against the nations;' to be loyal citizens, not to do anything against the will of any nation or its honour; not to seek vengeance, discord, restitution or compensation; 'not to leave exile ahead of time.' On the contrary, we have to be humble and accept the yoke of exile. To violate the oaths would result in 'your flesh will be made prey as the deer and the antelope in the forest,' and the redemption will be delayed."

Christian Support of Zionism

A simple definition of a Christian Zionist is a Christian who supports the right of the Jewish people to establish and defend a state in their historic homeland of Israel.

There are two types of Christian Zionists:
  1. The minority consists of those Christians whose support of Israel is purely political in nature. For example, there is an organization called The Catholic Friends of Israel. On its website, the statement is made that they support Israel because it is "the only democracy in the Middle East."
  2. The vast majority of Christian Zionists are Evangelicals who believe that God is fulfilling promises today that were made to the Jewish people thousands of years ago in Bible prophecy. The cornerstone of their support is the belief that the title to the land which God granted to the Jews in the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:1-7 and 13:14-18) is everlasting and irrevocable. These Evangelicals should really be referred to as "Biblical Zionists" to differentiate them from Christian Zionists who are politically motivated.
Biblical Zionists or premillennists teach that the Second Coming will occur before a literal thousand-year reign of Christ from Jerusalem upon the earth. They believe that the temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt before the Lord will return, and upon His return He will establish an earthly kingdom where He will reign for a literal thousand-year period, the "Millennium."

The origin of Christian Zionism is usually attributed to the development of dispensational eschatology in the early 19th Century. This end-time viewpoint keeps Israel and the Church separate, arguing that God has a distinct plan for each. The Church will be taken out of the world at the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18), and then God will orchestrate all the nations of the world against Israel (Zechariah 12:2-3), hammering the Jewish people until they come to the end of themselves, at which point the remaining remnant will accept Jesus as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10).

Historic premillennialism (which rejects the idea of a pre-tribulation rapture and the uniquely Jewish nature of the dispensationalist's millennial kingdom) was the most widely held view in the first 300 years of Church history. Premillennialism began to die out in the established Catholic Church during the life of Augustine (A.D. 354-430), who is often referred to as the "Father of Amillennialism." Amillennialism quickly became the accepted view of the Church.

Amillennialists believe that the Kingdom of God was inaugurated at Christ's resurrection, at which point He gained victory over Satan. Christ is now reigning at the right hand of the Father over His Church, both in heaven and on earth. After this present age has ended, Christ will return and immediately usher the Church into their eternal state of glory after judging the wicked.

The term "amillennialism" is actually a misnomer for it implies that Revelation 20:1-6 is ignored; in fact, the amillennialist's hermeneutic interprets it (and in fact, much of apocalyptic literature) non-literally. The number ten represents the idea of completeness as determined by the will and counsel of God; the "thousand years" in Revelation is the number ten to the third power; it does not speak of days or even of hours, but of years; therefore, it suggests the idea of a long period. On these grounds, amillennialism interprets "the thousand years" as indicating a long period of time, fully determined by the will and counsel of God; and the period of "a thousand years" is to be applied to this entire dispensation until the time shortly before the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds of heaven. (According to some, from a Biblical perspective, a rebuilt third Jewish temple is not required for the prophecies in Daniel [or any other part of the Bible] to be fulfilled because Christ is in the hearts and minds of His people, so the spiritual Church, the New Israel of God, is the third temple.)

During the 16th century, a major European movement began as an attempt to reform the Catholic Church: many western Catholics were troubled by what they saw as false doctrines and malpractices within the Church, particularly involving the teaching and sale of indulgences. This movement became known as the Protestant Reformation. During this movement, Anabaptists and Hugenots helped to revive premillennialism, and it was adopted among some Puritans during the Post-Reformation era.

The greatest development and spread of premillennialism since the early Church came in the late 1800's - early 1900's with the rise of U.S. fundamentalism and dispensationalism (originated by John Nelson Darby). Starting in the British Isles and spreading to America, premillennialism has become prominent in the Evangelical faith.


Why We Should Be Concerned About Christian Zionism

Christians are troubled when injustice is committed. We are especially troubled when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for ideological purposes. One such misappropriation is commonly referred to as Christian Zionism.

Christian Zionism may be defined either broadly or narrowly. Broadly speaking, it designates any Christian support for the national revival movement of the Jewish people realized through the establishment of the modern State of Israel (historically known as Zionism). More narrowly defined, Christian Zionism is an ideology grounded in beliefs which considers the State of Israel to be divinely ordained and scripturally determined with a central role in ushering in the end of history, where unconverted Jews and unbelievers (including Christians who are considered to be of questionable status) are judged by God’s wrath. It is the narrower form that causes immediate concern.

There are a number of reasons why this narrow ideological form of Christian Zionism raises concerns for the member communions of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA. Among these are the following:
  • It is a movement with negative consequences for Middle East peace

    Christian Zionism, in its narrow ideological form, encourages political advocacy committed to preserving control over all of historic Palestine for Jewish people alone, including the West Bank and Gaza strip, to ensure the realization of the movement’s own end-times hopes. This ideological approach rejects any peace process built on a negotiated settlement towards a two-state solution to the conflict. Leading advocates of this ideology have formed themselves into oftentimes very public and well-funded political action groups whose aim is to prevent any negotiations that may lead to a two-state solution to the conflict.
  • It fosters fear and hatred of Muslims and non-western Christians

    Prominent spokespersons for Christian Zionism are known for promoting negative stereotypes of Muslims and Middle Easterners, including Middle Eastern Christians. They often accuse these Christians of siding with Muslims against the U.S. and the State of Israel in a cosmic battle of good and evil, thus questioning their Christian faithfulness. Rather than fostering understanding and cooperation with neighbors, ideological Christian Zionism often teaches Christians in the U.S. to harbor suspicion and enmity towards Muslims and non-westernized Christians. When it does so, the movement negates Christ’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:39).
  • It can lead to the dehumanization of Israelis and Palestinians

    Because Christian Zionism bases support for the State of Israel on its supposed role in the end of history, its adherents tend to treat Israelis and Palestinians not as neighbors to be loved, but as pawns in a cosmic drama of divine vengeance and retribution. The conclusion of this drama involves the death of all non-Christians, including Jews, through apocalyptic warfare or divine judgment. Given these beliefs, even many Jews wonder if the movement promotes proper Jewish-Christian relationships and question the nature of the movement’s support for Israel.
  • It is not based on traditional teaching or doctrines of the Church

    Christian Zionism and its theological presuppositions are nineteenth-century innovations in Christian doctrine. The most prominent spokesperson for these beliefs was John Nelson Darby (1800-1882). Although the advocates of Christian Zionism and its underlying theology sometimes claim to base their beliefs on ancient understandings, generally scholars recognize these to be recent innovations.
  • Evangelical Christians are concerned

    Ideological Christian Zionists sometimes claim that they speak on behalf of all American evangelicals. This is not so. Many evangelicals in the U.S. do not want to be identified as ideological Christian Zionists. Several prominent evangelical spokespersons have spoken out strongly against this ideology, recognizing how it contradicts the central commitments of Christianity to justice and peace-making. Many question its theological assumptions.
Christians in the West must ask themselves questions about the influence of Christian Zionism in U.S. public opinion. It grieves the member communions of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA to note that many Christians visiting the land of Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection are not even aware of the existence of Arab Christians, and do not have opportunities to interact with local Christian communities. One step toward addressing this concern is for Christians in the West to become better aware of Christian Zionism and its effects, including the history, theology, and forms of biblical interpretation underlying this ideology. Please take the time to learn what this movement is all about, get involved, and continue to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6).
