  17. IDF video of their assault on the Freedom Flotilla shows passengers attempting to repel the illegal boarding. It's IDF self-incrimination. #

  18. Where's the IDF very hi-res recording of the sound, flash, heat, source, and direction of each gun shot on the Freedom Flotilla? #


  20. 21-yr-old Emily Henochowicz, US, shot in the face with a teargas canister by IDF at Qalandiya checkpoint, Palestine, has lost her left eye. #

  26. Mossad Chief Meir Dagan says that "Israel is gradually turning from an asset to the United States to a burden." It's no longer gradual. #

  27. To excuse the IDF, Israel FM Avigdor Lieberman said 500+ people were killed last month in Thailand, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq & India. #

  28. Avigdor Lieberman needs to wake up. Once the Palestinian problem is over, the world will still turn to the deaths in Thailand, Afghanista... #

  29. WA state: Tea Party is Republican wing. 66% Republicans v. 8% Democrats "somewhat approve" or "strongly approve" of the Tea Party movement. #

  30. AP: 2006, "Hamas wins Palestinian parliamentary elections. Western powers declare Hamas a terrorist group." 2007, US-Israel fund Fatah coup. #

  31. 2007-8: Israel violates terms of ceasefire, breaks ceasefire, invades Gaza, targets/kills hundreds of noncombatants, uses illegal weapons... #

  32. World public opinion is forcing Israel to free all Freedom Flotilla passengers. The US can no longer grant militant Zionists full immunity. #

  33. Obama is twice wrong: "...better ways [than Freedom Flotilla] to provide humanitarian assistance...without undermining Israel's security." #

  34. 1st, the Freedom Flotilla was the best way to provide humanitarian aid. 2nd, the Jewish people's security is best served by ending Zionism. #

  35. Freedom Flotilla: There is no legal right for ethnic-cleansing, war-criminal land thieves to claim self-defense against victim-rescuers. #

  36. The UN Security Council (includes US) condemns "acts which resulted in the loss of ... civilians and many wounded" on the Freedom Flotilla. #

  37. I just tried to help the Wikipedia with the font-size issue in their new version: #

  38. "France urges rapid adoption of Iran sanctions." Israel has a "secret" nuclear weapons program. Why trust terrorist Zionists more than Iran? #

  39. Waves of unarmed, non-violent Freedom Flotillas need to overwhelm racist, supremacist, Apartheid Zionists. #

  40. Supremacist Zionists must give back the Freedom Flotilla ships & all cargo they are preventing from entering the Gaza Concentration Camp. #

  41. It's the Gaza Concentration Camp created by racist, fascist Zionists. The Freedom Flotilla is right, though strict non-violence is the way. #

  42. The cargo ship the Rachel Corrie is coming. Bravo! The Freedom Flotilla is brave for truth. It is the spirit of the law written on hearts. #

  43. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said "Israel's legitimate security needs must be met." Was she for the White-Supremacist South Africa? #

  44. If Zionists, secular or Babylonian Talmudist, want to feel "secure" in the face of Freedom Flotillas, let them repent of racism & elitism. #

  45. Netanyahu claims they were surprised, but they had been saying before that Freedom Flotilla passengers wanted Zionist violence. How stupid! #

  46. Nations break relations with illegitimate, racist Zionist Project over attack on Freedom Flotilla to liberate Gaza Concentration Camp #

  47. UN Security Council and NATO demand immediate release of all six Freedom Flotilla vessels. #

  48. Britain, France, Russia, & China demand Zionists lift blockade of Gaza Concentration Camp. Meanwhile, Obama still kisses banksters' hands. #

  49. Obama "stopped short of specifically condemning Israel" for attacking the Freedom Flotilla. That's bad government: shades of neocon Bush. #

  50. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev: the loss of life on the Freedom Flotilla was "absolutely unjustified." Correct! Why hasn't Obama said it? #

  51. Recall Obama's silence at Operation Cast Lead. He hid behind that "we have one President at a time" (but only concerning Zionism). #

  52. Ban Ki-moon: "Had Israelis heeded to my lifting the blockade of Gaza, this tragic incident would not have happened." He's grown. #

  53. The World Council of Churches says Israel broke international law by attacking the Freedom Flotilla. Israel broke the law of God! #

  54. The world, left and right, except for the US, condemns Israel's attack on the Freedom Flotilla to liberate the Gaza Concentration Camp. #

  55. The US government in the form of neocon Barack Obama does not speak for this American. I condemn the Zionist attack on the Freedom Flotilla. #

  56. This will be the first time in history since the founding of the UN that the US and Israel will not get their way. Mark my words well! #

  57. The whole world must condemn the United States for mincing words in an attempt to protect guilty Israel over this Freedom Flotilla attack. #

  58. End violence, greed, & depravity. Bring forth total pacifism, the giving-and-sharing-all economic system, & only righteous sexual standards. #

  59. When we end war, environmental destruction, slavery, poverty, hunger, and homelessness, it will lead to things even more miraculous. #

  60. The global Mainstream Media must be sure all eyes are on the cargo ship the Rachel Corrie heading for Gaza as part of the Freedom Flotilla. #

  61. If anything happens to the Rachel Corrie, part of the Freedom Flotilla, heading to help liberate the Gaza Concentration Camp, we will know. #

  62. Opening the land crossings and checkpoints to and from Gaza isn't good enough anymore. The Gaza Concentration Camp must be fully liberated. #

  63. Gaza Concentration Camp must be liberated by land, sea, and air. Zionist tyranny over Gaza must end completely, no ifs, ands, or buts. #

  64. Barack Obama rejected an independent United Nations investigation into the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla. He's a lousy President. #

  65. By rejecting an independent UN investigation into the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla, Obama makes America stink among the nations. #

  66. The only solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one state that is not "Jewish" or "Muslim" but good neighborly for each and all. #

  67. Israel UN envoy Daniel Carmon: "What...peace activists use attack soldiers who board...[per] law?" Peace activists, knives, law? #

  68. Russia & China would be foolish not to obtain an independent UN investigation on the Freedom Flotilla before agreeing to anything US/Israel. #

  69. Anglo-American-Israeli Zionism/neoconservatism has been the gravest of dangers to world peace and prosperity. #

  70. US: "Among those younger than age 30, identical percentages react positively to "socialism" and "capitalism" (43% each)" - Pew Research #

  71. US: Most of those who have a positive reaction to 'socialism' also have a positive reaction to 'capitalism'." - Pew Research. Mixed economy. #

  72. "72% of Hungarians say that most people in their country are actually worse off today economically than they were under communism." - Pew #

  73. Law professor Allen Weiner says, "...blockade...not international waters to enforce it." He knows the blockade is illegal. #

  74. Israel is not legal. It stole most of the land it's on & ethnically cleans it via terrorism & violence. It dishonored statehood provisions. #

  75. The Zionist-neocons work overtime trying to paint IHH as bad for supporting Gazans. Being against those IHH efforts is becoming the new bad. #

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)
