Christians - Zionism's Useful Idiots

November 8, 2009

You know the imagery-- millions of Christians around the world have spontaneously disappeared - where did they go? Some say aliens, others terrorists. Now airplanes are plummeting to destruction, trains derailing, cars crashing, nuclear power plants are melting down and dumbfounded people staggering around in confusion looking for their children... Who unleashed this insanity on mankind?

My brother, who is an atheist, and I were watching TBN a while back and happened upon these images from Kirk Cameron's blockbuster film, Left Behind. There were no shortages of side-splitting laughs.

The false ideas put forward in most movies and books pertaining to end-times Biblical prophecy appear to most as sheer unadulterated religious stupidity but to the majority of protestant Christians particularly, in America, they are both real and imminent. 

Illuminist propaganda concerning the return of Jesus Christ occupies a central part in a vast structure of deception that will govern Christian minds when some Great Tribulation actually does occur.

C.I. Scofield's Dispensationalism provides the theological framework for the Christian Zionist movement. Christian Zionism is an important subset of the Christian Dominionist movement, all of which is also being co-opted by Illuminists. These Christians are the ultimate useful idiots... I stagger to communicate what is coming to Christendom in the future.

The expectation of a false rapture event will be brought to a feverish boil through massive disinformation campaigns as general distress increases over the next decade.

This madness will then be satiated through a pseudo-rapture simulation, something that will trigger the mass hysteria. We see a prototype of this in the particular elements of the Blue Beam project. 

This rapture event will be an attempt to bring Christians Dominionists on side for King Zion, Lord Maitreya, or the man of sin. A global false worship and initiation rite will be used to lock Christians into a frame of reference that they won't easily escape from, then the mark... 

The Scofield Bible heralds the coming kingdom of the Jews in which God's Chosen People shall reign over all the earth. Scofield, a notorious criminal who popularized dispensational theology, is revered by many Christian evangelicals.  Everywhere that evangelism in America goes, these lies will most surely follow. That is unfortunate, but it is by design.

While part of the Lotus Club in New York during the late 19th century, Scofield was brought under the domain of Zionists by Samuel Untermeyer, an illuminist. Untermeyer and other key Zionist's recognized within Scofield's theology a very powerful weapon for their cause... and it has flourished in its acceptance until this day. Dispensational theology is a major contributor in the founding and continuance of the current Jewish state. 

Untermeyer later became chairman of the Anti-Nazi league, American Jewish Committee and American League of Jewish Patriots. He blackmailed President Wilson into placing Louis Dombitz Brandeis into a vacant seat on the Supreme Court. In 1933, on WABC, he declared war on Germany and described Jews as the aristocrats of the world. 

Untermeyer brought Scofield into correspondence with many important Zionist leaders of the day like Jacob Schiff, Bernard Baruch and Samuel Gompers to name a few. They were his handlers and funders. 

Dispensationalism and its attendant false ideas like the pre-tribulation rapture is probably the most pestilent propaganda being promoted today. The ultimate purpose of these teachings will lead the masses to destruction in the future through a false worship type of event. 

This said, the doctrine has many more detrimental immediate consequences. Its exponents find refuge in the comfort of not having to participate in the future affairs of mankind. Potent deceptions surround the Christian Zionist movement and Dispensationalism - dig here; there is no end to what you will uncover.

Jewish Comic Insults Millions of Christians

October 28, 2009
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

http://www.henrymakow.com/jewish_comic_insults_millions.html

In the most recent episode of "Curb You Enthusiasm", Larry David has a "toilet accident" which expresses contempt for Jesus, Christianity and millions of Christians.

The set-up is improbable. David is at the home of his Christian assistant "Maureen." He is on some kind of medication which causes him to lose control while urinating. He "accidentally" sprays a portrait of Christ on the bathroom wall. When Maureen and her mother notice a drop on Jesus' face, they mistake it for a tear. They think it's a miracle and bow down and pray.

1. No Christian would keep a portrait of Jesus in the bathroom. Only an arrogant, disrespectful, ignorant person like Larry David could imagine that. 

2. No writer with respect for human dignity and decorum talks about toilet accidents. What is this childish fetish comedy writers have with bodily and sexual functions? Is this the last taboo?

3. This scene would be classified as a hate crime if it were aimed at anyone but Christians. Imagine the reaction if he peed on a Menorah, an Israeli flag or a Koran?   I don't believe this scene is an accident. It's a deliberate attack on the Christian majority, designed to humiliate, shame and disinherit.

CHRISTIAN REACTION

Christians were not impressed. Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, responded, "Would he think it's comedic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother?"

I don't think he cares about his mother. But what if we went to his office and peed on his Emmy?

Deal Hudson, author and publisher of InsideCatholic.com said an apology from the show's producers and writing team should be issued. "Why is it that people are allowed to publicly show that level of disrespect for Christian symbols? If the same thing was done to a symbol of any other religions -- Jewish or Muslim -- there'd be a huge outcry. It's simply not a level playing field."

This is not the first time Christ has been blasphemed in this fashion. In 1987 a photographer won a publicly- funded prize for a picture of a crucifix with Jesus submerged in a vat of urine. It was called "Piss Christ." 

JEWISH HATRED

"Anti-Semitism" disguises what is in fact a long-term hatred of Christ and Christian civilization on the part of certain Jews. The Talmud imagines Christ as an illegitimate son of a whore and a Roman soldier. He is condemned to boil in a vat of excrement.  Some Orthodox Jews are taught to spit whenever they see a cross or pass a church. During the Intifada,  Israeli soldiers shot up statues of Christ and Mary in Bethlehem.

Jews who don't share these sentiments must realize that Larry David discredits and jeopardizes all Jews.  Whatever we think of Church dogma, Christ taught that God is Love. Why do some Jews find this so threatening?

Because it is universal. Jewish ideology is elitist. They are the Chosen people.  They want to be worshiped. They died in the holocaust for your sins. The Old Testament includes visions of all other nations giving up their property and serving them.

CONCLUSION

Throughout history, mankind has striven to raise itself above the level of an animal. True religions have always maintained that man is made in God's image. We have to obey our highest instincts and tame our lowest. 

Unfortunately, too often, it has been Jews who have undermined this process. They have labeled self-discipline as "repression," and taught destructive self-indulgence in the name of spurious "freedom."

Too often, certain Jews have equated rebellion against God (the natural and spiritual order) with being fully "human." Their God is really Lucifer, and like Lucifer, they are metaphysical outcasts. They are helping to subvert God's Plan, one of the major causes of anti-Semitism.

Larry David is a comic genius.  But, his shtick is making fun of the selfishness of some Jews. As we have seen in Gaza and Lebanon, it isn't always funny.

We become what we believe in. We can believe that God is Love and we were made in His image, and become lovable creatures. Or we can believe in money, sex and power, and have the mean and petty lives we do.

"But how could the Churches perform such an exposure, when they are the allies and partners of Orthodox Judaism? How can your pastor or priest expose the deep-rooted inspiration for Larry David when your priest or pastor is himself a crypto-rabbi?"

Why are Christians Such Wimps?

May 13, 2006

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

http://www.savethemales.ca/001537.html

When an innocuous cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed was published, Muslims rioted and burned down embassies. But next week, a major Hollywood movie will challenge the veracity of Jesus Christ and Christians are sitting on their hands.

I have not read "The Da Vinci Code" but I understand it asserts that Christ married Mary Magdalene and had children. His descendants are still alive. Essentially it challenges the Bible story and the Christian belief that Christ was the Son of God. It transfers Christ's prestige to an Illuminati-like secret society that is protecting Christ's descendants against the Catholic Church.

The book and movie are yet another blasphemous assault on Christianity trumpeted by the full force of the Illuminati-owned mass media.

Recently Carolyn, a Christian reader from Maine, expressed her frustration in this email.

"Next week with 'the Da Vinci code,' "They" are going to call Jesus a liar as far as His Death and resurrection are concerned. Then they are going to claim his blue blood line. This would make Jesus a liar... wouldn't it? It is so twisted what they are selling and i count myself lucky to have a least read The Scriptures. 'My Feet Are Fitted With Readiness.' (Corinthians 6:15) What is going to be said about Jesus next week is apostasy."

I replied: "People like you should show their outrage publicly."

She replied: "HOW??? With Whom??? Where is the Remnant???"

I shrugged my shoulders. To change the metaphor, why are Christians such lambs? Why do they always need a shepherd to lead them and a flock to be part of? Isn't Christ a personal matter? Can't they act as individuals? Can't they take initiative? Organize a picket or protest in some other imaginative way?

When Muslims in Afghanistan heard that the Koran was being flushed down the toilet in far away Guantonimino Bay, they rioted. For them the battle against Satan is very real, and they are willing to sacrifice their lives. This is why they pose the last remaining religious obstacle to the Satanic New World Order.

Similarly, question the veracity of the Holocaust, and Jews will cite "hate crimes" and put you in jail.

But do the same thing with the central fact of Christianity and there is a call for a boycott from the Catholic Church. Well, dah. That's not very scary.

Why are Christians such wimps? They sat idly by while Christ was crucified! Their reaction wasn't even a factor in that decision.

I have heard various explanations. Christ said, "Turn the other cheek" and "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's."

On the other hand, there is the example of Christ turning over the tables of the moneychangers in the temple. Let's follow Christ's example.

What good are Christian beliefs if you don't stand up for them? Where is the self-respect of Christians if they allow their beliefs to be trampled on?

But it gets worse. Some so-called Christians like George W. Bush are actually willing to serve Satan. Christian chaplains serve with the American army in Iraq and minister to soldiers. Everyone should know Sept. 11 was a hoax designed to justify imperialist wars and domestic repression. It was perpetrated by the Illuminati bankers in London with the help of their puppets in the US government. You just have to look at who bought the Put Options on the airline stock to know the true perpetrators. (Of course this info has been suppressed.)

Christians should file "hate crime" law suits against the makers of "The Da Vinci Code." It seems "tolerance" only applies to those who would destroy Christianity and family. On  Judgment Day we will be graded not by what we believed but by what we did. It's time Christians stood up for Christ.

Comments for "Why are Christians Such Wimps?"

Bitsy said (May 21, 2006):

People like me "should show their outrage publicly". Yes, I know I should. Why will I not do it? Because I am afraid! I was born, raised and lived in a communistic country for 28 years. For the last 19 years I've been living in Canada a country that reminds me so much of my first homeland. Our society is totally controlled by the government, the media is controlled by Jews. Being politically incorrect practicing Roman Catholic and a critic of propaganda does not get you far. Being outspoken is simply wrong, society in general is apathetic, standing up for my Catholic beliefs... I would show my outrage publicly, but I am simply afraid! I know that this act of courage can be very pricey (I have already lost my job by criticizing an alcoholic director of an agency I worked for). My home, back in my first homeland, was searched by secret agents regardless of the fact that my mom was 7 moths pregnant at the time, two members of my immediate family were unjustly arrested for their political and religious believes, imprisoned and died shortly after their release from prison. I witnessed what can happen to you if you show your outrage - you might be not able to find a job, your children might be prevented from obtaining the education they wish to get, the tires on your car might be slashed, your house might be burnt, somebody might push you under the passing car and there are no witnesses to this accident and the list goes on and on. Some people might say that I am paranoid. No, I have already been there and done my outspoken deed. I have the first hand knowledge of a system we live in. But still , I wish I had the courage to speak... but I am afraid to say much. I am proud to be who I am, I am proud that I taught my children to be observant and sensitive to the decline of our collective conscience and I am proud of some other things, but now in the frenzy of "DaVinci Code" I rather "turn the other cheek".

(4) Reply to Makow on Wimps - Peter M. (November 12, 2009)

There are a few things Makow missed here.

Although the DaVinci Code is soap-opera quality, it has stolen the limelight from the books of Baigent & Leigh - which have a Masonic inspiration. They even sued Dan Brown for pinching their ideas - but lost.

Baigent & Leigh exhibit a Masonic venom against Christianity. Brown's Jesus may not conform to Catholic puritanism (which says he was a life-long celibate), but in his romantic entanglement with Mary Magdalene he emerges as more "human". Dan Brown seems to have re-kindled public interest in Jesus - as a man, if not a divinity. ==

Dan Brown sued for Plagiarism

28 Feb 2006 ... Dan Brown, author of the best-selling the Da Vinci Code is being sued by the authors of the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, Michael Baigent ...

(5) Letter from a Dutch Reader--"Man Must be the Flame, not the Moth"

November 3, 2009

http://www.henrymakow.com/i_understand_your_point_about.html

I understand (your point about David Deida (Left) [nee Greenberg, "The Way of the Superior Man" being too "New Agey") . He is a spiritual man. I like his spirituality, although his tantra is beyond me for now.

But what I do like about him, is that he encourages men to take total responsibility. For instance, he says that when women complain (as they are apt to do) you should never listen to what they say, but connect to their deeper message: you are wasting your time. In his view women start complaining when they unconsciously sense you are not in control and in your strength. I believe there is a great deal of truth in that, although clearly women have been brainwashed to overestimate themselves, so that they complain more than is warranted.

Mind you, I don't believe feminism (which I despise, having been raised by one) is the only culprit: men have been dominated by women for ever. I'm pretty sure that even before WW2 90% of men were licking their wives boots at home, even though keeping up appearances for their peers.

I know 90% of the men that I know do so these days.........
Most men simply give in to the emotional stress that women create, instead of standing firm.

Men have been raised to be mentally weak. There is a story on-line by a Mr. Lynch, a slave trader ( who got, you guessed it, lynched), who explains to his fellow traders how to destroy masculinity in their slaves, so that the women rule in the slave communities. It makes the community more easily exploitable. I'm pretty sure this has been going on in the West as well.

We live in a matriarchy, especially in the private sphere. Hitler in his 'Mein Kampf' also made the point that the masses are feminine in nature: docile and following.

So the whole thing is indeed about emancipation, but of the male. But the truth is, that most males need a major kick in the butt if they are ever going to rule even their own lives, let alone those of their families.

Another nice point by Deida is, that a man should choose a woman, that has chosen him. That is what I did, and it worked. A woman that is with a man she chose has it easier to surrender and show loyalty. It gives me more power in our marriage, which is necessary in times of marital crises. A woman is more apt to respect a man she has chosen than a man that has haunted her. As Don Juan had it: you must be the flame, and not the moth.

Thanks for being in touch, I appreciate it, I have been following your work for years. We share a common interest in the monetary and the male/female thing :-)

(6) Letter from Moscow

November 4, 2009

http://henrymakow.com/

I am Russian. I live in Moscow. My parents emigrated to Canada for a better life.

In fact it was my ex-husband (practicing Muslim) who introduced you to me. (I mean your website and your ideas.)

He admired you. He said you were like a father to him.He read your articles every Tuesday and reread them during the week.

He even wanted to start some kind of a Russian website to place translations there.

It's from your articles that he concluded that I'm brainwashed with feminism.

Regardless of the fact that I was sitting at home, doing all the housework, taking care of a baby daughter even making clothes for him when money was tight and keeping my mouth shut all the time.
(I don't think Russian women are feminists. Most successful women with careers hate feminism and all that "culture" that comes from the West.)

So, speaking of my ex-husband, he maltreated me badly (a perverted form of domestic violence - both psychological and physical)

On one hand he professed eternal truths and your ideas, too; but on the other - he did awful things. I still wake up in cold sweat when he comes in my dreams. We divorced of course. Almost two years ago.

After that I stopped reading your articles. But last night I could hardly sleep searching thru the web.
I read some of your things.
Problem is that we have economic crash in Russia and the forecast is too bad.
Our Government is a pack of morons who have been stealing oil money for the past 20 years.

I talked to one of the State Duma man the other day.

I was scandalized how untroubled he sounded when he mentioned that people are starving in some regions of Russia.

The worst thing is I can't do anything about Russian government or the world's super rich elite. I feel helpless like probably most people do now.

One thing I can do is understand what's going on. That's it.
Not too optimistic.
---

If you're interested I can write things for you - how top politicians are slowly killing the country
in all possible ways.
By the way many of them - as well as show biz elite - are members of Masonic lodges.
Some things that happen here are just horrifying - sometimes I wonder what keeps Russia going at all.
In fact the country is falling apart, Putin only prays that the price for oil does not go down))
I think that people in the West are hard to wake up because life is still good.
Here we have pretty many people who began to realize the global conspiracy thing long ago.

(7) Hollywood's Scathing Portrayal of Judaism

http://www.henrymakow.com/coen_brothers_scathing_portray.html

October 24, 2009

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Hollywood has been accused of portraying Christianity with a jaundiced eye while sugarcoating Jews and Judaism. Or it presents Jews as non-Jews.

Finally, "A Serious Man," a new movie by Oscar winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen, is frankly about Jews. It satirizes many Jewish types and suggests Judaism is a fraud.

If this begins a trend toward honest self-examination, there is hope yet for the chosen people.

Set in Minneapolis in 1967, "A Serious Man" is an homage to the Coen's Jewish upbringing. The protagonist is physics teacher Larry Gopnik, played by stage actor Michael Stuhlbarg who, like the Biblical Job, is beset by a multitude of difficulties.

"I didn't do anything wrong," he protests when Judith, his pouting wife, announces she is leaving him for Sy Ableman (pictured together, left.) Larry is a "serious man" -- hard working, ethical and responsible. Why is God testing him?

Larry turns to a friend, Mimi for sympathy. "It's not always easy, deciphering what God is trying to tell you," she says. "We're Jews, we have that well of tradition to draw on, to help understand. When we're puzzled, we have all the stories that have been handed down from people to people."

In fact, that well is dry.  Gopnik visits rabbis who tells stories unrelated to his dilemma. One tells him to find "Ha Shem" (God, the "name") everywhere, even in the parking lot. Another relates a story about a dentist who found Hebrew letters on a Gentile's  teeth. "What does this story mean?" Gopnik says. "I don't know,"  the rabbi replies.

Finally, Gopnik pleads for an audience with the revered Senior Rabbi Marshak. "He's busy," his battleship of a secretary tells Larry. "He doesn't look busy," says Larry.

"He's thinking," the secretary assures him.

After his Bar Mitzvah, Gopnik's son Danny does get an audience with the fabled Marshak. Danny waits in eager anticipation for the wisdom that marks his induction into the Jewish fraternity.

Finally, the great rabbi opens his mouth and quotes The Jefferson Airplane's song "Somebody to Love." (1967)  

When the truth is found to be lies
and all the joys within you dies
don't you want somebody to love
don't you need somebody to love
wouldn't you love somebody to love
you better find somebody to love

Funny? Yes, but also true. This became the credo of our time. Jews were at the forefront of  substituting romance and sex for religion. Perhaps it was born out of alienation from their own "religion."

Compare with Paul Simon, "Kathy's Song," 1965

And so you see I have come to doubt
All that I once held as true
I stand alone without beliefs
The only truth I know is you.

A JEWISH CONVERSATION

Joseph Sobran said that working for the National Review for 21 years was like listening in on a conversation between Jews. This observation doesn't only apply to political discourse. Jews, often Illuminati Jews, oversee cultural discourse in general. They arrange the spectacles astride our noses and decide who will govern.

In "A Serious Man"  we are privy to a conversation Jews are having about themselves. Finally, we are witnessing some honest self-criticism. As Village Voice critic, Ella Taylor wrote,  "A Serious Man is crowded with fat Jews, aggressive Jews, passive-aggressive Jews, traitor Jews, loser Jews, shyster-Jews, emo-Jews, Jews who slurp their chicken soup, and--passing as sages--a clutch of yellow-teethed, know-nothing rabbis."

Indeed, the Coen Brothers have done for Jews what Fellini did for Italians. I don't think there is malice intended but rather a recognition of Jewish limitations in style, culture and religion, i.e. the stultifying parochialism, conformity, status seeking and meaningless observance.

The film also exposes the seeming contempt Jews have for non-Jews, the "goy." Gopnik's gentile American neighbors are hunters who come home with a bloody deer carcass strapped to the roof. There is a revealing scene where Gopnik is confronted at home by the father of a South Korean student he failed. The gentile neighbor comes to Gopnik's defense. But Gopnik dismisses him preferring to dicker with the new immigrant.

Is this movie Jewish self-hate? I don't think so. Jews recognize honest satire and find it refreshing. I sat beside a middle aged Jewish couple who roared with laughter. Ultimately Jews are the first victims of their own culture. Because of anti-Semitism, they have been deprived of the rejuvenating benefits of genuine self-criticism.

"A Serious Man" is a major improvement from the Coen's last two movies. "No Country for Old Men" and "Burn After Reading" were bleak, violent and nihilistic. It's great to see these talented filmmakers examine a recognizable reality.

I don't know why people have so much trouble with the concept of "God." He is synonymous with our spiritual ideals: absolute truth, goodness, justice, peace, beauty and love. We have no choice but to believe and act in His name. Yes, bad things happen to good people like Larry Gopnik. But that's not God's fault. Usually, it's our fault, other Godless people or an accident of nature. In fairness to God, more bad things happen to bad people.

The general defamation of God and religion has more to do with the Illuminati conspiracy than anything else.

CONCLUSION

The movie begins with a ten-minute fable in Yiddish (with English subtitles) set in a Jewish shtetl (village) in Russia. This fable alone is worth the price of admission. I don't want to give  the story away but it is about how evil creeps into the home, and how one must be vigilant  and courageous to expel it.

Evil has crept into Judaism and the Jewish community; and via Freemasonry, the whole world.

(8) Advertising campaign targets "lost" North American Jews in danger of intermarrying

From: Kristoffer Larsson <kristoffer.larsson@sobernet.nu> Date:  08.11.2009 11:15 PM

“In September, one of the Jewish Agency's partner projects, MASA, came under fire following a 10-day advertising campaign which urged Israelis to report "lost" North American Jews in danger of intermarrying.”

“One plan bearing Sharansky's distinct fingerprint is to directly involve the Jewish Agency in advocating Israel's position on college campuses abroad, by sending 19 young, salaried activists to combat anti-Zionism - which Sharansky views as a form of anti-Semitism - to the United States and Europe.”

Natan Sharansky to Haaretz: Assimilation is 'eating' the Jews

By Cnaan Liphshiz

Since taking the helm of the Jewish Agency, Natan Sharansky has made stopping assimilation of Diaspora Jews a focus of his office, sometimes breaking with the line set by his predecessor Zeev Bielski.

In an interview with Haaretz, Sharansky, a former Likud minister, described assimilation as "eating us" as a people, and said he wants to strengthen the connection of Diaspora Jews to Israel.

In September, one of the Jewish Agency's partner projects, MASA, came under fire following a 10-day advertising campaign which urged Israelis to report "lost" North American Jews in danger of intermarrying.

Sharansky had the ad pulled, saying it could be found offensive, and now says the best way of fighting assimilation is to bring people on "Israel experience" programs. Sharansky said he plans to use the United Jewish Communities' General Assembly meeting in Washington next week to hold a special reception for professionals to discuss increasing the level of cooperation between the two main Israel experience programs: the Birthright Israel 10-day trip for young Jews who had never visited Israel, and MASA - which subsidizes participation in Jewish programs here.

"Sharansky will try to make these two independent organizations, in which the Jewish Agency is a major partner, unite their forces," said one source who works closely with Sharansky. He added MASA could be better modeled as a follow-up for Birthright, sharing databases and exchanging ideas.

"It's part of a concentrated effort by Sharansky to eliminate overlapping bodies," the source added.

In terms of Israeli-Diaspora relations, Sharansky spoke of a need to transcend a mutual patronization.

"Israelis need to understand the Diaspora is not a passing phase and that immigration to Israel is now a matter of choice," he said.

"At the same time, the Diaspora communities need to drop their patronizing attitude to Israel, which some donors believe is a poor relation kept alive thanks to their generosity. Israel is a strong society which in many respects is much stronger than the societies of the Diaspora."  ...
