A tragic mistake that is common to any discussion on politics is that racism is bad. The dictionary clearly states that racism
is: "the notion that one's own ethnic stock is superior", and "discrimination or prejudice based on racism".
Now consider for a moment the merits or the flaws in this definition. Ethnic groups regularly take pride in their heritage
and traditions. Many view their culture to be preferred to others. Most classify others as different to them and seek to bond
with their own kind. And when conflict develops between their own people and another ethnic crowd, ranks close within your
own. This is a natural outcome of the human condition that has existed from the beginning of civilized community.
is a political movement. To equate motives of politics with a religious belief is specious. Judaism is NOT equivalent to Zionism.
The distinction is imperative if a correct understanding of relationships and actions, in the Middle East, are to be appreciated.
A Zionist often professes their acceptance of the tenants of the Jewish faith, but a 'true believer' in the supremacy and
survivability of a political state, can and frequently are non-believers to Judaism and the Torah. This is crucial, because
it is not a condition of political allegiance to share faith in Yahweh.
So far, there should be little argument with
these distinctions. But Jews are a race, with very similar characteristic, genetic traits, social and cultural heritage, and
a homogeneous ethnic similitude. This is a historic fact that should not be denied. No inference, good or bad, is being made
as some may conclude. Surely, one can convert to the Jewish religion from a non Semitic lineage, but that begs the real issue.
Racism as practiced by Zionist towards their Arab Semitic half brothers is undeniable. But is such behavior unnatural or even
wrong? Of course the answer lies within which group one identifies with and has sympathy for their cause.
be indisputable that the political interests for the Zionist are diametrically opposite to that of the Palestine. So why should
anyone be surprised when ruthless and savage animosity continues to play out with each successive generation? This is the
natural order at work, and is inevitable as long as the fallen nature of man awaits for the return of the Messiah.
this point, having been tutored and educated as a Catholic, who now freely accepts the fundamental tenets of St. Paul, I must
part company with my Jewish friends on matters of faith. Should the Hebrew faithful view me as one among their ranks? Of course
not. Nor should I consider them one within my circle of believers. Since it is a fact that the Jews could have prevented the
crucifixion of Christ when Pilot appealed to the crowd, some will insist that statement may be anti-Semitic. Quite to the
contrary! And more to the point, that remonstrance attitude is a political denunciation more than a religious condemnation.
My many Jewish friends have every right to identify with those that profess their beliefs. Likewise, so do people
of the Christian faith have that same right. But when we transverse into the political arena, away from differences in faith,
we enter into the realm of interests. Zionist have interests that are quite different from mine. Certainly my advocacy of
'America First' policies don't support theirs. Interests could coincide at times, but more likely have different paths.
When people foster the theme of continuous Jewish suffering and persecution, they abandon their own interests for one
of false guilt, which most have never earned. This emotional appeal benefits the Zionist and their political objectives. Conversely,
those who reject the manipulations of Zionist propaganda, all too often resent those of Jewish faith. Such mistakes from all
sides breeds only negative indignation.
Compounding this confusion with label of left or right just deepens the errors.
What matters is your interest. What possible benefit has America received from the perpetual three billion dollar yearly tribute
paid to Israel? Add a like amount to Egypt and you come away with a feeling of being robbed. Again where is our interest being
Ill will for any or all the participants within the cauldron of continuous turmoil in the Middle East is
not our wish. But political support that runs against our benefit is insane. Pragmatic economics would seek to make friends
with those who control the oil. But we all know that domestic realities shape foreign politics, and seldom is decided upon
that which is best for America. So when will we practice our own form of racism to further our own political interests?
When the corner stone for the Third Temple is finally laid, we all know that our political intervention is meaningless,
for events will be fulfilled. Jews and Arabs will never peacefully settle their differences. Zionist understand this reality
all too well. So does the Arab world. The United States, once again, involves herself in another futile quagmire that only
benefits others, while this foolish intrusion only weakens our own security. For those who continually cry anti-Semitism,
our reply is we all come from the same seed. We all worship the same God, but we have different political interests.
The Zionist has all too often abandoned their own religion for the same secular humanism that has sickened our Nation.
The Orthodox are consistent and strive to achieve ardent behavior to their faith. The likes of Minister Louis Farrakhan are
more sincere for their religion than the ADL is for their creed. In the end we all have the same nature. But we are different
because of our ethnic history. Starting by realistically dealing with this truth is not being an evil racist. A rebuff to
Zionism does not make one anti-Semitic. And refusing to accept any culpability for the feuds of others, does not lesson our
humanity. It is time to cut our losses as well as our costs. Cain killed his brother. The Tower of Babel caused the differences.
And many more Abel's are resigned to take their revenge. Peace will only come with the Second Coming. Let's hope that our
fellow Semites will hear the call.
