The War Against American Christians
Part I: Short History
By Dr. Elias Akleh
The American Christians have been for a long time the target of a covert religious war whose battle fields include their homes, their public schools, their churches, and their Sunday schools. They are subjected to massive well-planned scientifically-based brainwashing programs, whose goals are to distort and to weaken their Christian beliefs, and to divide them into smaller differentiated groups that can be easily manipulated, controlled and enslaved to blindly and loyally serve genocidal colonial agendas of Zionism and Israel under the fallacy of serving God’s chosen people. Groups such as Christian Zionists and Christians United for Israel are victims of such war. Such groups are the American Christian lost flocks.
Religious schools indoctrinate students since childhood into the racist Judaic theology of God’s chosen people in God’s promised land. Many priests focus on the Old Testament (Jewish Talmud) in most of their ceremonies except on Christmas, Easter and other few occasions. Some even invite Jewish Rabbis to their churches to preach about the alleged divinity of the Jews and to collect monetary donations for Israel. Turning the TV to many Christian stations one can hear only warmongering calls for purging the promised land from Islamic heathens and financing Israeli Jews to rebuild the Temple in order to hasten the rapture and the second coming of Jesus. Colonial Zionism seems to have occupied much of Christianity the same way it occupied Palestine.
Christian Zionism is an incongruent term, for Christianity and Zionism are totally opposite and antagonistic to each other. Christianity is a loving peaceful religion, while Zionism is a genocidal colonial political movement. Christianity is based on Christ’s loving teachings with a compassionate God, while Zionism is based on the racist elitist Judaic teachings with an angry jealous vengeful warmongering god.
Wealthy Zionist Jewish organizations are behind this war against Christianity in Europe and in the Americas. They are the founders of Christian Zionist groups such as Christians United for Israel (CUFI) with over than one million American Christian members. The executive director of CUFI is not even a Christian, rather a devout Zionist Jew called David Brog, who is the cousin of present Israeli Defense Minister and former Israeli Prime Minister and the war criminal Ehud Barak, who led the aggression against besieged Palestinians in Gaza Strip. Brog’s biography posted on the CUFI’s website describes him as one of the 50 most influential Jews in America.
These Zionist Jewish organizations have been the driving force to ban all Christian symbols and culture within public American life, and replacing them with Jewish religious symbols and culture. Through their paid political lobbyists they outlawed Christian Christmas displays on public properties and prohibited Christmas carols, celebration, and praying in public schools. They have changed the “Merry Christmas” greetings into “Happy holidays” greetings. They have removed the Christmas tree from the White House front yard and replaced it with a huge Jewish menorah. Through the Zionist-controlled and financed media sources; TV, movies, and newspapers, they have been injecting Christian American culture with Jewish culture. The US is so infected with Zionist Jewish culture and ideology that the administration has been sending American troops to the Arab World in the Middle East to fight and to die for Zionist Israel.
Christianity, Christ’s teachings, is a continuation of teachings of Melchizedek, king of Salem (Jeru-salem, Al-Quds; Arabic for holy city), priest of “God Most High”, who blessed Abram with bread and wine. After this blessing “God” made a covenant with Abram, (Genesis 14: 18-20). David was also “… a priest forever according to the Order of Melchizedek” (Psalm of David; Psalm 110:4). Melchizedek Order was higher than the Levitical Priesthood and higher than the Order of Aaron: “Therefore, if perfection were through Levitical Priesthood what further need was there, that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek and not be called according to the Order of Aaron?”
Judaism is the teachings of Judah, the fourth son of Patriarch Jacob. Judah hated his younger brother Joseph and conspired against him. He coerced his brothers to join him in selling Joseph to Ishmaelite traders for 20 pieces of silver. Feeling guilt and shame for their father’s grief the brothers deposed and excommunicated Judah, who left his father’s home and lived with the Canaanites marrying one of their daughters, (Genesis 37 -38). Judah established his own order; Judaism with the Pharisees as its priests, separate from his father Jacob, and his tribe became known as Jews rather than Israelites. Judaism is the religion of the Pharisees, who developed Talmudic and Kabbalistic traditions concocted to control, manipulate and enslave the people.
The Pharisees had developed into a very powerful political priesthood within the Sanhedrin; the Jewish Council, which rivaled the other Jewish three major schools of thought; the Sadducees, the Essenses, and the Zealots. The Sadducees were the main antagonists of the Pharisees who competed for control over the people. It is believed by some historians that the Pharisees had conspired with the Romans during the Jewish-Roman Wars (70 CE) when the Romans crushed the other three schools of thought and ruled the land and appointed Yohanan ben Zakkai; a leading Pharisee, as a Jewish Patriarch ruling all the Jews. Ben Zakkai reestablished the Sanhedrin under Pharisee control. Pharisees became the Rabbis and collected tithe from the people. They had control of the Temple and had converted it into a usury bank for their money changers
The Pharisees had always sought to kill Jesus for emancipating the people from Pharisees’ enslaving control. John the Baptist and Jesus called the Pharisees “sons of vipers”. Jesus told them “if you are the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham, but as it is, you are seeking to kill me.” (John 8:39). He also told them: “you are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth.” (John 8:44). Finally Jesus kicked their money changers out of the temple and ordered them: “Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” (John 2:16)
Although crucifying Jesus the Pharisees had lost the war against him. Many, including Jews, had adopted Christianity. The Pharisees realized their defeat when Rome, too, adapted Christianity as its main religion. They did not abandon the war though, but adopted different tactics. They conspired to attack Christians from within purporting to enslave Christians through their own religion. Through their accumulated wealth and control over major professions in the society, Pharisee insiders (false converts) penetrated Christian Church and caused the elimination of many Christian books during the meeting of the first Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, thus determining the context of the official New Testament. They have also started the inquisition to eliminate all possible opposition and to burn all the so-called blasphemous books known as apocrypha.
Diaspora Jews were still victimized by the Pharisees, now as Jewish Rabbis, who maintained control over them through their distorted Judaic teachings. These political Rabbis brainwashed the Jews into accumulating wealth through usury and other dubious ways such as alcoholism, prostitution, wars and slave trade. They established financial institutions and lending banks that eventually controlled the vital resources of any country including economy, trade, education, media and eventually political system. They had encouraged and financed revolutions and perpetrated genocides of Christians, and incited religious wars between Christians and Muslims. Finally, Zionism was created to herd the Jews into Palestine in order to rebuild the Temple and to make Jerusalem the most influential political capital of the whole world.
Zionist Jews had infiltrated the Vatican itself in an attempt to distort Christianity and to mislead Christians into serving Jews and Israel. In his book “From Enemy to Brother: the Revolution in Catholic Teaching on the Jews, 1933-1965” (Harvard University Press, 2012), John Connelly, a professor of history at the University of California, Berkeley, claims that Jewish converts to Catholicism, such as Johannes Oesterreicher, Gertrud Luckner, Rev. Paul Demann, Geza Vermes, Renee Block, priest Gregory Baum and priest Bruno Hussar, among others, were the main drivers behind the 1962 “Vatican II Declaration” known as “Nostra Aetate”, which completely reversed the Church’s approach to Jews and religion. The declaration contains statements that Jesus Christ, his mother and his apostles were Jews, and that the Church had its origin in the Old Testament. It denies that the Jews may be held collectively responsible for Christ’s death, called the Jews “most beloved” by God, and that Jews “carried a special holiness.” This declaration eventually allowed Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI to visit Israel in 2000 and 2009 respectively where they stood in veneration at the Wailing Wall (Islamic Al-Buraq Wall) and at the Holocaust Memorial lamenting the death of German Jews, but said nothing about the genocides of Christian and Moslem Palestinians or the siege of Gaza.
Pope John Paul II had acquiesced to Zionist Judaism when standing in the synagogue of Rome in April 13th 1988; he claimed the sinful lie that “Jews are our elder brothers in the faith.” The Jews are no brothers to Christians since they don’t believe in Jesus and they curse him and his mother every opportunity they have. This Pope shamelessly tried to absolve Judaism and to mislead Christians when he stated “… the seeds infected with anti-Judaism must never again take root … Judaism is a response to God’s revelation in the Old Covenant … and the Eucharistic prayers are according to the model of Jewish tradition”, in his “General Audience” at Rome as reported by the official Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, May 5th 1999 under the title of “Jews and Christians Share Much Together.” The Zionist influence over the Church is so effective that in 1995 Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago gave a speech at the Hebrew University blaming the Gospel of John for “inciting anti-Semitism.” He also initiated a dialogue concerning “a need to its (the Gospel of John) redaction or suppression.”
Will the Church, eventually, adopt Zionism?
