DirecTV Won't Air Ad Critical of Israel
The satellite network DirecTV is being accused of censorship after reportedly refusing to air a commercial critical of US backing for Israel's attack on the Gaza Strip. The spot was produced by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. It lists the number of Palestinian dead from Israeli attacks and criticizes Israel for blocking aid and supplies. It then calls for cutting US military aid to Israel, concluding, "President Barack Obama, we need a change of policy toward Israel/ Palestine." The group says DirecTV abruptly refused to air the ad after having reached an agreement.

This is why the American people are ignorant. They aren't allowed to know what is going on. Also, these same people DirecTV will insist upon their own "freedom."
Obama's Weak Nuclear-Weapons Offer to Russia
It is reported that Barack Obama is going to offer Russia a deal of 1,000 nuclear weapons each. Are we talking about of a certain size? Why keep any? Why not include all the nations of the world and offer total nuclear disarmament? That would be impressive. This keeping 1,000 warheads on each side is weak. Obama is weak.
Israel's Continuing Threats to Assassinate the Duly Elected Leader of the Palestinian Democracy
Israel's Housing and Construction Minister, Ze'ev Boim, of the Likud, has said that Israel needs to assassinate Palestine's Prime Minister, Ismail Haniya, who is the leader of Hamas in Gaza. Boim is only the last in a series of so-called Zionists pushing for revving up the war on Gaza under the pretext of ending the rocket fire from Gaza. Boim and the others are nothing but a bunch of land-thieving gangsters and mass murderers. They are the serpents of whom Jesus spoke and who murdered Jesus too.
Censoring Al Jazeera
Qatar is the nation of origin of the news network Al Jazeera. Qatar funds Al Jazeera. Qatar ordered the closing of the Israeli trade office in Qatar after Israel's brutal and illegal attack on Gaza. Israel has retaliated by blocking Al Jazeera in Israel and Palestine. Al Jazeera was the only network in Gaza during the attacks. Now Egypt, under the U.S. puppet dictator, Hosni Mubarak, is blocking Al Jazeera's access to Gaza from Egypt.
(See: "Egypt prevents Al Jazeera journalists from entering Gaza," by Yoav Stern. Haaretz. February 5, 2009)
What is Egypt going to do when the U.S. stops funding Egypt? The American people will cut off the money when things get tighter in America. Israel will see its funding cut off too if things get bad enough. There is no way the American people will continue voting for people who keep sending U.S. tax dollars overseas if enough people in America start hurting enough financially.
You all over there in the Middle East and especially Israel and Egypt better start thinking about making peace all the way around before the U.S. gravy train runs out.
Fred Abrahams, of Human Rights Watch, said Israel used 155-mm howitzer shells. Those shells are not smart weapons. They are not guided. They can land off target by some 30 yards. Also, their blast radius is some 300 yards. That means Israel wasn't being careful at all about hitting "unintended" targets. It was using weapons that would just destroy and kill regardless of guilt or gender or age of civilian status. That's savage.

I write professionally about the economy. I'm just so sick of it that I don't want to put the same information on the Church website — It is such a mess, and the powers that be are doing such an utterly terrible job dealing with it, on purpose I might add.
Capitalism really is a disaster, you know. It just will never work. It hasn't work thus far at all. It has always made matters worse. It is a net loss always. It is devouring. It is based upon selfishness, and that is always sin. This is the way of looking at the inevitable conclusion of the illogic of capitalism. Its spirit is inherently antichrist. There will never be salvation by means of capitalism. It will always end in busts. It will only get progressively worse as technology and science become more and more able to cause greater and greater destruction. The time for a new economic structure is now. It is time for the Christian Commons.
A Totally One-Sided Zionist Project View in The Wall Street Journal
Yale University's Edward H. Kaplan and Charles A. Small found "that anti-Israel sentiment consistently predicts the probability that an individual is anti-Semitic, with the likelihood of measured anti-Semitism increasing with the extent of anti-Israel sentiment observed."
(Source: "Europe Reimports Jew Hatred: The mythical Arab Street now reaches deep into Paris, London, Berlin and Madrid," by Daniel Schwammenthal. The Wall Street Journal. JANUARY 13, 2009.)
Oh, that's just great (huge sarcastic tone here intended). Lump everyone together as anti-Semitic who believes that the Zionist Project is land thieving. I really hate these blatant propaganda pieces that are 100% one-sided and designed completely to terminate all thought. This Daniel Schwammenthal person is completely intellectually dishonest. There is absolutely no way to be honest and not look at both sides and really all sides of an issue before determining what is a just outcome.
Will The Wall Street Journal print a direct response by a top-Muslim member of Hamas? Of course it won't. That's because it's a coward.
Look, if Schwammenthal doesn't like the real anti-Jewishness that exists, and it does, then why the hell (literally) is he supporting false-Zionist land grabbing that plays right into the hands of the anti-Jews?
The so-called Zionists had no business asking the British Empire to create the state of Israel. The British didn't own Palestine that it could rightfully give it to the Jews. The people who lived there already "owned" it in the mundane sense. The false-Zionists horned their way in; bought titles to lands often from foreign, absentee-holders of dubious titles at best; and used clear terrorism and mass expulsion to steal the land. It was absolute evil, and no amount of obfuscation by Daniel Schwammenthal and The Wall Street Journal is going to change that.
Hamas has its faults. It can though be reasoned with. Can Schwammenthal? So far, the Likudniks and the other fascists-leaning and even outright-fascist political parties in Israel are showing nothing but unreasonableness. When the world turns to hating them so much that it moves to wipe them out, whose fault will that be? It will be wrong, but the Likudniks will have the greater sin. Their spiritual ancestor, Jacob, after whom they had the effrontery to name their illegal nation-state "Israel" knew and will testify against his own offspring in Heaven before God.
Daniel Schwammenthal and The Wall Street Journal are extremely shortsighted and dangerous for all the Jews in the world. They are going to cause completely innocent Jews, Jews who are firmly against the Zionist Project, to suffer needlessly right along with the guilty land-grabbers.
Listen to your forefather and namesake and learn! Don't be thickheaded, Daniel Schwammenthal.
And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males. And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out. The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister. They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field, And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house. And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house. And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an harlot?
(Genesis 34:25-31 KJVR)
Wake up! Hamas is not even dealing "with your sister as with an harlot." The real Israel (Jacob) knew full well not to do what you are doing now. He had learned about how to deal with others starting with his own brother whom he had cheated and for which Jacob was sincerely repentant and concerning which he atoned to the best of his ability.
You can't keep murdering the innocent at numbers of 100 to 1 and get away with it indefinitely. The United States is not, I repeat, is not powerful enough to defend you against the whole rest of the world. Your business deals are also not great enough that the rest of the world won't turn against you and rip you apart. In addition, there are many in the U.S. who secretly and not so secretly hate you and are just waiting for the heat in the rest of the world to heat up enough that they will be calling for your heads in public without the least bit of fear of your calling them anti-Semitic or anti-Jewish. They'll say they are anti-Jewish and won't care. You'll give them cover by making it appear that all Jews (which they are not) are land thieves and worse.
Humanitarian Aid Blocked
Now your insane false-Zionists have attacked a Lebanese ship off Gaza trying to deliver humanitarian supplies. They beat people on the ship and wrecked equipment. Perhaps the Russians and Chinese could come together in side-by-side warships loaded with humanitarian supplies for the Gazans. Is that what you want? Is the U.S. going to go to war right now with both Russia and China for you? The U.S. took warships to Georgia in the Black Sea that was dominated by the Soviet Union and as a direct challenge to the weakened but strengthening Russia. The Russians seem weaker due to the global economic crisis, but the U.S. is much, much weaker too. So, it's still relative strength that matters. Watch out little horn. You're going to be butted hard if you don't stop.
U.S. Rep. Steven Rothman (D-N.J.) said the "UNRWA does not allow outside oversight, and UNRWA does not have what he said are the necessary mechanisms in place to show that it is not enabling and funding terrorists through its relief works." What a load of dung. The United Nations is trying to be as humanitarian as possible in Gaza. It is not funding any terrorism. This Congressperson, Rothman, just hates anything that will be at all decent to Arabs from whom the false-Zionist have stolen and are continuing to steal land. He's a Zionist-nationalist menace and must go and will. He's a danger to the whole world. (See: "Rothman wants Jewish backing for UNRWA bill," by Ron Kampeas. JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) Jewish & Israel News. January 30, 2009.)
Leon Panetta, Shame
Leon Panetta is the Obama nominee for the position of CIA Director. Panetta says those who tortured others under the Bush administration should not be prosecuted. Now understand here that I don't hold with punishing anyone, but Panetta does. He's just being selective and highly hypocritical. He knows that those who tortured others knew full well that they were acting illegally regardless of any memos from the Justice Department to the contrary.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
