Bible Believers' Newsletter 456
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; may 2007 see you resting in the sufficiency of God's unchanging Word with the Token on display, answers to prayer, and the 'third pull.' Happy New Year my pilgrim saint.
Please welcome our long-time guest contributor Israel Shamir from Jaffa, Israel, in this the first edition of our Newsletter for 2007, a year we anticipate as pivotal in the history of God's children and His servant nation. Brother Shamir champions the "One Man, One Vote, One State" solution, seeking to unite Palestine and Israel in one democratic state. His work speaks to the aspirations of both the Israelis and the Palestinians seeking an end to the bloodshed, and the beginning of lasting peace and democracy. However, there will be no peace for World War I initiated the Three Woes of earth's birth pains as it strives to renew itself for the Millennium (Matthew 24:4-8).
Please read the links in Israel's article so that you may draw full dividends from his message which relates to the present truth in the natural and spiritual realms, particularly as it relates to the mind-altering and mind-conditioning unreality and impermanence projected upon those without the Absolute. Jesus foretold, "All who dwell upon the earth shall worship the Beast, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8). These links reveal how, as "the prince of the power of the air," Satan employs the mass media of the airradio, television, telephone, Internet, iPod, video, film and games, live and recorded musicto exercise his control over the ten senses of the human body and spirit and take dominion over the unregenerate soul.
Christians should not have a television set in the house.
When Brother Branham sang, "Return O dispersed to your own," he was admonishing God's elect to return to the simplicity of the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6), and establish a stable Christian walk, so their Light could shine to all men. He was encouraging us to shun worldly aspirations, sanctify and separate from all unbelief.
Has Saddam Hussein been hanged or has one of his doubles suffered a martyr's death? Either way, Messrs. Bush I and II, Clinton, Blair and other national leaders who have not seen military action are guilty of the deaths of millions of Iraqis, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and allied servicemen and women, their spouses and offspring who will perish as a result of their DU nuclear warfare. In comparison to these liars and war criminals, Mr. Hussein was a boy scout.
Before George II began to enforce "democracy and freedom" out of the barrel of a gun, Iraq was the most advanced nation in the Middle East. There was religious freedom in this secular state. Women enjoyed equal rights, medical care was free, and the standard of education very high. But in the mid-nineteenth century the City of London devised plans for three world wars and three major revolutions calculated to secure world hegemony. Political Zionists and Islam were cast as protagonists in World War III in which 'the City' would provide funding (at interest), and Gentiles would give blood.
Iraq was more peaceful, democratic, prosperous, happy and secure under Mr. Hussein than it has been under his usurpers. But "democracy and freedom" were never their objective; neither was oil which can be purchased. The objective of George II is Satan's one world government (Matthew 4:8-9). To this end his Edomite masters are bent upon the genocide of the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which is why they seek to devastate Iraq, Iran, Syria and other nations where Israelites have dwelt since they were transported by Assyria in the eighth century BC. We are witnessing the fruits of apostasy transform the once Christian West into the dreadful, terrible and exceedingly strong fourth beast and its image of Daniel 7, Revelation 13 and 17, that will devour the whole earth with its great iron teeth, trample it underfoot and break it in pieces.
"God bless America?" Brother Branham said, "I don't even pray for it"!
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Memorization, Standardized Tests, and Official Policy
"Better we teach our children NO answersonly questions and suspicions, courage and insight to detect official ideology. They will need wisdom beyond our experience to rebuild our trusted position of leadership in a peaceful worldto restore environmental health to a wounded planetand to redefine concepts like patriotism, democracy, and morality. They will need an extraordinary education, not short answers. Testing and retesting is no substitute for investment in education." Full story: truthout.com
Comment: The days of reformation ended in 1963. There is no hope of healing this wounded planet. Better lead the little children to Christ before the earthquake.
Bush 'Developing Illegal Bioterror Weapons'
In violation of the US Code and international law, the Bush administration is spending more money (in inflation-adjusted dollars) to develop illegal, offensive germ warfare than the $2 billion spent in World War II on the Manhattan Project to make the atomic bomb. So says Francis Boyle, the professor of international law who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 enacted by Congress. He states the Pentagon "is now gearing up to fight and 'win' biological warfare" pursuant to two Bush national strategy directives adopted "without public knowledge and review" in 2002.

Comment: "It is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the "goyim" see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else" (Protocol 10).
Brother Branham said, "Did you know the Bible predicts that in the last days, that they'll be a germ warfare? That diseases will break out upon the people, and will fall on everyone without the baptism of the Holy Spirit? But the Angel who had charge over these plagues was given orders to touch no one on whom the mark was. Why, how much, kind of teachers have we got to be, brethren, to get the church in order to be in that condition? Immune." (God's Provided Way of Healing, #54-0719A).
"The Bible said that man would actually rot in their flesh . . . But that Angel was given commission, "Don't you touch any of those! Don't you come near those who has the wine and the oil. Don't touch those who has the seal of God upon their forehead" (God's Povided Way of Fellowship, #60-0709).
The Tyranny of Liberalism
By Israel Shamir
(A Talk given at the conference on Religion in the International Relations: Liberalism and Tradition, International Relations Faculty, St Petersburg State University, 24 November 2006. Copyright).
Modern Liberalism is the dominant paradigm in the US, and it plays a major role in Europe, in post-Soviet Russia and elsewhere. This line is preached by the powerful world-wide mass media syndicate whose elements are ostensibly independent yet they transmit the identical message James Petras has called The Tyranny of Liberalism. A "liberal tyranny" may strike some as oxymoronic if not a contradiction in terms since Liberalism likes to represent itself as the neutral ground of freedom rather than as an ideology and as an arbiter of religious pluralism and freedom rather than an anti-religious ideology. Liberalism is the ideology than denies that it is such a thing; ask a liberal and he will tell you he is against the dominance of any ideology or of any religion.
In our attempt to pierce this protective colouring we shall apply some ideas of the late German thinker Carl Schmitt who learned of liberalism the hard way. After Germany was subdued and conquered in 1945, Carl Schmitt lived for a while in the Soviet and American occupation zones, which were later converted into the German Democratic Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany. On the basis of his comparative experience in the occupation, Carl Schmitt noticed that American Liberalism is a militant ideology less prone to compromise than Soviet Communism. The Americans demanded that Schmitt give proof of belief in Liberal Democracy, while the Russians never asked him to swear an oath upon the Communist Manifesto. This personal experience led Schmitt to conclude that the Modern American Liberalism is not an ideology-free live-and-let-live paradigm, but a positive ideology, and an ideology even more dangerous than the Communism he greatly disliked. Schmitt saw the traditional balance of power threatened by the new triumphant Anglo-American air and sea global imperium based on an aggressive ideology. For this reason he welcomed the Cold War, as he thought the USSR the only force capable of containing the American ideological drive.
In recent years with the American invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, many others have come to share Schmitt's realization that Liberalism is an aggressive global ideology calling for certain principles to be implemented world-wide by force of arms. These principles can be described either in positive or negative terms: a restaurant guest and an oyster would describe the arrival of Chablis and lemon in different ways. Much depends on whether you eat or you are eaten. Let's have a look at the menu from a dual perspective.
- Human rights OR denial of Collective Rights.
- Minority Rights OR denial of Majority Rights.
- Non-governmental ownership of media OR exclusive right of Capital to form public opinion.
- Womens' rights and protection OR dissolution of family.
- Homosexual unions OR denial of the sanctity of marriage.
- Antiracism OR denial of "the need for roots" in Weil's terms.
- Economic self-reliance, OR ban on social mutual help (in theological terms agape and charity).
- Separation of Church and State OR freedom for anti-Christian propaganda and a ban on Christian mission in the public sphere.
- Public elections of government («democracy»), limited by voters' conformity to the liberal paradigm, OR denial of authentic self-determination.
Carl Schmitt postulated an important assumption: every ideology is a crypto-religious doctrine, or in his words, «all of the most pregnant concepts of modern doctrine are secularized theological concepts». Let us compare Communism and Liberalism in the light of this insight.
Though it originated in the West, Communism first arose in the society formed by the Russian Orthodox Church, and it had many features one would expect to find in a secularised Orthodoxy. Poets felt it well, and Alexander Blok sang of Christ "with the blood-red flag, invulnerable to bullets, fleeting foot above the blizzard, in a white crown of roses" leading his Twelve Red Guards. In the late Soviet days, the Russians proclaimed the Christian principle "Man is to Man a Friend, Comrade and Brother." The Russian Communists despised material comforts as had their Orthodox predecessors, and placed their sobornost (Catholicity, or togetherness-in-the-Church) and solidarity above all other virtues.
Solidarity and Catholicity are features shared by ideologies Liberalism is hostile to. Last week, Yehuda Bauer, the Yad Vashem Memorial director, the High Priest of the Holocaust cult, in a speech given to counterbalance the Tehran Conference, said:
"There are great differences between National Socialism, Soviet Communism, and radical Islam, but there are also some important parallels. All three are or were religious or quasi-religious movements. Unquestioning, quasi-religious belief in Nazi ideology was central to the existence and policies of the regime, and it was Nazi ideology that was the central factor that produced the Holocaust; Marxist-Leninism was the quasi-religious dogma that everyone in the Stalinist empire had to swear by. The same applies to radical Islam."
This is undoubtedly true, or, in the light of Carl Schmitt's words, rather a truism: if it is an ideology, it has theological underpinnings. We shall notice that Bauer did not mention one important ideology, contemporary with the three and at war with them. Just recently, some fifty years ago, Marxists-Leninists, National Socialists and Liberals sorted out their differences on the battlefields of Europe. Why does the Liberal Bauer give a pass to Liberalism?
Beyond being coy, Bauer's significant omission has an important theological message: Liberalism's claim to transcendence. A liberal places liberalism above "ordinary" religions and ideologies; on a higher plane than any religious or ideological construct. The adepts of any ideology other than Liberalism are "totalitarians" or "fanatics", in the eyes of a Liberal. This arrogant attitude of the only possessors of truth reminds us of the Judaic narrative of the Old Testament, where the devotees of One God are exalted to a level above the "pagans". Theoretically, this attitude of superiority was inherited by the three great religions of our oikouménè, of Eastern and Western Christianity and of Islam as well; but it wasn't internalised. An Orthodox Christian did not consider himself a cut above Muslims and Catholics. However, modern Judaism (widely divergent from Biblical Judaism in other respects) preserved this unpleasant claim to superiority of its predecessor.
Bauer's reluctance to name the religious component of Liberalism provides us with a clue pointing to something he might wish to conceal. But here is an additional hint. As Bauer continues to seek parallels in the three indicted movements, he positions their common antagonist:
"All three target Jews as their main, or immediate, enemy: the Nazis murdered them; the Soviets planned, in 1952, to deport all Soviet Jews to Siberia, with the obvious intention that most of them should die. The genocidal message of radical Islam to the Jews is loud and clear."
If Bauer believes his claim about the Nazis is as true as his assertion about Soviets and Muslims, his place was at the head of Tehran Conference as the chief H-denier. If he does not believe his own claim, he is a liar and a defamer. The story of "Soviets planning to deport Jews" is an Israeli fabrication as false as a three-dollar bill and thoroughly debunked, too. If Stalin and Hitler had read Bauer's talk in 1940, they wouldn't have gone to war. But what is important for us is that Bauer construes every modern movement based on solidarity, catholicity and community as "anti-Jewish," while Liberalism is as Jewish as gefilte fish.
What indeed is Liberalism? Some scholars follow Weber and describe Liberalism as secularised Protestantism. Others pay attention to its anti-religious anti-Church tendency and see Liberalism as secularised Satanism. The late Alexander Panarin considered it a form of idolatry based on the "heathen Myth of de-contextualised Goods and their de-socialised Consumers".
Armed with Schmitt's thesis and Bauer's testimony, we may conclude: the "liberal democracy and human rights" doctrine carried by the US marines across the Tigris and the Oxus is a form of secularised Judaism. Considering the predominance of Jews in mass media and especially among the media lords, it is only natural that the ideology they promote is so close to the Jewish heart. Its adepts retain classic Jewish attitudes; and the "uniqueness of Israel" is a tenet of this "non-religious" school, whether in the form of the "unique" Holocaust, or a "unique" attachment to Palestine, or a "unique" love of freedom and diversity. Indeed, while mosques burn in the Netherlands and churches are ruined in Israel, no emotions are stirred up in comparison to those set in motion when graffiti is written on a synagogue wall. The US grades its allies by their attitude towards Jews. The Holocaust Temple ["Museum"] stands next to the White House. Support of the Jewish state is a sine qua non for American politicians. Bauer describes the horror of possible Nazi victory in such telling words: "There would be no Jews, because they would all be annihilated. This would end history as such." In other words, history in Bauer's eyes is about Jews. No Jewsno history. The rest of mankind are just sheep devoid of memory and futurity.
Secularised Judaism feels no aversion to Judaism, and this is the only religion protected within the dominant Liberal discourse. When some Russians tried to apply the Instigation of Hatred Law to Judaic anti-Christian diatribes, they were condemned not only by Jewish bodies, but by the White House and by the European Community as well. This week, a Lubavitch rabbi demanded that the Christmas trees be removed from Seattle Airport until a menorah was installed. The airport removed the trees, disclaiming its expertise in "cultural anthropology." New York city schools won't allow mention of Christmas but celebrate Hanukkah, Ramadan, and the silly Kwanza because they are all multicultural whereas Christmas is not. (Vdare.com is a good source for the war against Christmas strenuously denied by the media). Every reference to Christ is fought off by the network of Human Rights bodies, ADL, ACLU and other PC enforcers, who never object to Jewish religious symbols.
When Secularised Orthodoxy, that is Russian Communism, conquered lands, they shared their faith and their resources with the conquered. Indeed, Soviet Russia was a net supplier to its "satellites", and spent a fortune supporting Cuba, East Germany, Hungary, Poland and the Baltic states. After 1991, the ex-Soviet states remained owners of great industrial enterprises and energy complexes they thoroughly lacked before their integration within the Soviet Commonwealth. One of the more successful propaganda slogans of the USSR's liberal destroyers was "enough of feeding foreigners".
Secularised Judaism conquers lands in order to rob and destroy them. For forty years of Jewish rule in Palestine, not a single building was constructed by the authorities, but thousands were demolished. Although thoroughly secularised, the Jewish state embodies the paranoid Jewish fear and loathing of the stranger, while the Cabal policies of the Pentagon are another manifestation of this same fear and loathing on a global scale. The Secular Judaic Jihad in Iraq turned the fertile Mesopotamia into a wasteland. Countries that have been fully subdued by the LiberalsHaiti, Malawiare the poorest of all.
Hold on here! you'll say. What a load of trash! Judaism is one of the great monotheistic religions; Judaists believe in the same God we Christians and Muslims believe. Judaists are our comrades in the common struggle against godless subversion. Judaism has nothing in common with the anti-spiritual, materialistic, anti-religious cult of globalisation, neo-liberalism, consumerism, alienation, denial of roots, destruction of family and of nature. It's the other way around: Judaism postulates the priority of spirit, the sanctity of family, the preservation of nature; Judaic communities are well known for their solidarity and mutual support, for tradition and for the togetherness of people united-in-God.
This is strong objection; and apparently it shatters our identification of Liberalism as Secular Judaism. But only apparently; for this objection is based on faulty premise. Judaism (like the Roman God Janus) has two faces; one facing the Jews, and other facing the Goyim, non-Jews. It makes two opposing sets of demands to Jews and to Goyim. This is the difference between Judaism on one hand, and Christianity, Islam, Buddhism on the other hand. These great faiths place no demands on non-adept except for the call to become one. The only thing the Church wants from a non-Christian is to become Christian. Judaism does not want to transform a goy into a Jew. It is almost impossible, almost forbidden, certainly disproved of. But Judaism places definite demands on a non-Jew who has the misfortune to be under its rule. He should not imitate a Jew, and thus the goy is forbidden to have a religion, he may not celebrate his own religious feasts, he may not help his brethren; he should be an economic animal. Secularised Judaism tends to be Judaism for Goyim, for Judaism-for-Jews has its sacral core.
Moreover, all the liberal ideas we described fit Judaism-for-Goyim.
• Denial of Group Rights. In Judaism, Goyim have no group rights. Jews are entitled to participate in the society as a group, but non-Jews should play as individuals, an attitude of "You have individual rights, we have group rights." Communal property of goyim is considered as abandoned. In the Jewish state, Jews freely take over the lands belonging to Palestinians as a group; it is only about confiscation of private Palestinian lands that discussion is permitted. In Liberal Secularised Judaism, workers' solidarity should be broken, trade unions must be dismantled, but rich men's solidarity is permitted. Privatisation is such a denial of group rights: if an asset does not belong to a private rich person, it is up for grabs.
• Minority rights and denial of majority rights. In Judaism, a non-Jewish majority has no rights; certainly not over Jews, and this is fully inherited by Liberalism. In the Russia of 1991-1993, the victory of Liberalism over Communism was achieved through the media de-legitimisation of the Majority: the Russian people were called the "Aggressive and obedient majority" as opposed to the Enlightened Minority of Jewish oligarchs. An enlightened discourse in the West usually contains a hidden reference to John Stuart Mill, Madison, Alexis de Tocqueville and to the fear of the majority's tyranny.
• Private (as opposed to public) ownership of media, or the exclusive right of rich men to form public opinion. A publicly-owned paper is usually contrasted with "free media," as if a newspaper belonging to a rich Jew is somehow more free than one that belongs to a state, to a church, or to a trade union.
• Women's rights and Homosexual rights. Judaism does not recognise the goy's family. This is fully inherited by liberalism: liberals do not believe in the non-privileged man's family and want to dismantle it.
• Antiracism for a Jew is a tool in his natural struggle against the indigenous population; in the liberal paradigm, antiracism allows for the importation of a cheaper labour force, to undermine trade unions and to operate world-wide in a race to the bottom for wages.
• Judaism considers welfare a unique feature of Judaic community, while the goyim are not allowed such prerogatives as agape for mutual aide and protection. Liberals are actively undoing welfare, unless it serves to support their companies and corporations or as a government policy to foster support for immigrants and demographic upheaval as an ad hoc measure to undermine national communities and to racialize politics.
• Freedom of anti-Christian propaganda. Liberalism does not fight Judaism, but carries on a relentless struggle against Christianity. In liberal America, judges condemn the Catholic Church for its teachings, ban Christmas trees and usher a new expurgated Bible.
• Democracy. In the liberal paradigm, if you do not agree with the liberal ideas, your voice is not counted; a defence against the Tyranny of Majority is activated. If you agree, it does not matter for whom you vote, as the result will the same. They call Israel "a democracy", though the majority of its goyim have no right to vote, and those who can vote are kept out of power by invoking the "Jewish majority". The democratic victories of Hamas in Palestine, and of Lukashenko in Belarus were considered illegal; in Serbia, they repeated the elections until they obtained the sought-after result.
• Thus we come to a conclusion: modern American liberalism is secularised Judaism for Gentiles, and not freedom from religious pressure, as its proponents claim.
Why have the US and Britain succumbed to this strange ideology? A probable answer to this can be found in British history. Recent studies by Dr Mark Thomas, UCLA claim that in 5th-7th century, pre-Christian Saxon tribes conquered Britain and established an "apartheid society" of 10,000 invaders in the midst of 2 million natives. They eventually outbred the natives: "An initially small invading Anglo-Saxon elite could have quickly established themselves by having more children who survived to adulthood, thanks to their military power and economic advantage. They also prevented the native British genes getting into the Anglo-Saxon population by restricting intermarriage in a system of apartheid that left the country culturally and genetically Germanised. As a result, Britain has a population of largely Germanic genetic origin, speaking a principally German language," writes Thomas.
Thus, some of the British population have an inbuilt genetic memory of a successful evolutionary strategy connected with apartheid and with application of "Judaic" principles. The Jews have no copyright on being nasty; and the quaint British meddling with the Lost Tribes myth has more to do with Saxons than with Israelites. As long as Britain was Catholic and Christian, this tendency was kept in check; but along came the Reformation, with its wholesale import of Judaic ideas of the Old Testament, followed by the import of their Talmudic reading from the Netherlands during the Orange Revolution. The Catholic religious muzzle came off, and the enclosures devoured traditional England. In this great bout of privatisation, the landlords partitioned, privatised and fenced off the commons. Like their Judaic predecessors, they disregarded the group rights of native underprivileged classes, of "the goyim" of the New Order. They applied their strategy in Ireland and Wales, and later in North America and Australia, and caused the extinction of millions of natives. Many Britons, Americans and Australians have the memory of the successful strategy; this makes them prone to philo-Judaic policies and to quasi-Judaic measures.
Certainly, colonisation and ruling military caste formation did not occur only in Britain. There is the Aryan Conquest in the Indian tradition, or Frank rule in France. The French solved the problem by the National Razor of Dr. Guillotin in the Big Terror of 1793, where the idea of blue-blooded aristocracy was loudly voiced by the middle-class revolutionaries. Even today the Polish nobles claim that they are descendants of non-Slavic Sarmats, as opposed to ordinary Poles who are Slavs. This "Sarmat" claim of the Polish nobility (which entails contempt for an ordinary Pole as an alien) was an important reason why Poland tolerated and nurtured the biggest Jewish community ever to exist on earth.
Wherever it gains the upper hand, the Liberal Secular Judaic doctrine creates enormous gaps between the upper and lower castes. Indeed, in the US, 60 million Americans live on $7 a day, while a happy few have billions they can't possibly spend. This represents a very successful evolutionary strategy for the ruling minority. It is so successful, that eventually the ruled majority may have to apply drastic measures to moderate its success. But its full extinction is not to be desired: brought down-to-size, cured of its exclusivist claim, offered a small niche, Liberalism can be useful in any solidarist society like a ventilation shaft in a warm room. We just should not allow it to freeze us out. nl456.htm
