The Board of Deputies of British JewsÂ are utterly ridiculous. Stephen Sizer doesn't have a racist or ethnically bigoted bone in his body and is absolutely not anti-Jew or anti-Semitic. I say it both ways because Semitism is not synonymous with Judaism or Jewishness. Muslim Arabs are Semites, in case you didn't know.
In addition, Jewishness is not synonymous with Zionism, never has been and never will be. There are many, many anti-Zionist Jews in the world, and that population is growing much faster than the Zionists in relative terms. In fact, Zionism is close to losing the support of the majority of right-thinking Jews in the United States, praise God!:
A Special Place in Hell
by Bradley Burston
Will 2013 be the year American Jews secede from Israel?
If American Jews think that what is being done in their name is self-destructive, oppressive, blockheaded and wrong, it stands to reason they would want it to stop.
Furthermore, it is absolutely ludicrous that people can't link to a site concerning which they do not agree and by so linking be claimed by airheads to be in full agreement with or even necessarily sympathetic to the cause of the linked site. Consider that I have linked to these airheads (Board of Deputies of British Jews) in this very article. I agree with them even less than I agree with some of the sites Stephen Sizer has linked to that these Jewish supremacist, land-thieves are complaining about.
What's wrong with this site anyway? I don't see anything wrong with it. The other one the Zionists complain about isn't completely wrong. I would link to it with the qualification that I'm not making a full endorsement of everything thereon. In fact, I just did. If I were to link to it to point to a particular post for a particular article, I would spell out more whatever it is with which I take exception. I would do that more or less depending upon the time I would have at the moment. I would not do it because I think that linking to sites with which I disagree requires me to qualify my link every time. I disagree with plenty on the New York Times but link to that site without saying that each time. The Zionists, and there are plenty of them on the New York Times, do not deserve special treatment handling them with kid gloves. They need to be denounced, which I am doing right here and now!
I absolutely do not believe that 6 million Jews died at the hands of the Nazis. I definitely believe the Nazis murdered Jews. The question is how many, not whether, and also the degree to which Zionists have lied, which many of them have (and that's fully documented by some of the people this Board of Deputies of British Jews hate because of it).
I am not a white nationalist. I am not a racist. I am not an ethnic bigot. I am definitely one who holds with Christian supersessionism. This Board of Deputies of British Jews apparently hasn't a clue as to what supersessionism is. It comes exactly from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ:
Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them. But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet. (Matthew 21:42-46)
It's too bad these racists and ethnic bigots who trample down those they've ethnically cleansed from most of Palestine don't have the good sense to tremble at those words of their God, YHVH. Their spiritual ancestors (I say spiritual because it is clear that many calling themselves Jews are not the direct descendants of Judah or even Jacob, Isaac, or Abraham) did not bring forth the fruits of the kingdom of God but the exact opposite. That's why they were crushed by Titus, exactly as Jesus predicted. Some people never learn.
Go ahead, airheads, persecute Stephen Sizer. See where that will land you. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? (Matthew 23:33)
Here's the airheads' site and insane article against Stephen Sizer, whom God lifts up: The Board of Deputies of British Jews.
After you read their scummy complaint, read all of the letters of support for Stephen Sizer on his website: "Revd John Woodger Responds to Allegations of Anti-Semitism."
Look, all of those people make nice with the fascist Zionists. I don't. Stephen Sizer is a hero. He stands up and tells the truth about Zionism vis-a-vis the Palestinians, many of whom are even Christians!
It's way past time for the whole world to stand up and to tell the Zionists that the days when they, the Zionists, can just walk all over the Palestinians are over. Even now those disgusting ideologues are planning to ring yet another Palestine town, to wall it in, to make another Bantustan, every bit as evil as what the South African Afrikaners did to the black Africans in South Africa before Apartheid was brought to an end by international pressure not the least of which came directly from the United States of America.
Every American Jew should stand right up to these evil bullies, the Zionists, and tell them all to back off and repent or the American Jews will see to it that those Zionists get zero support from the US and are even made the national and global subject of BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions).
The Zionists are no better than the white nationalist Apartheid Afrikaners. In fact, in many, many ways, they are worse! They whine and whine about how the Jews were treated by the Nazis. Then they turn right around and steal other people's land and bomb them and beat them and humiliate and oppress them. The Zionists are total hypocrites. Only the ignorant or hypocritical themselves support Zionism!
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.Â (Matthew 23:12-39)
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)
