Christian Zionists, Jews, and Israel

For the record, I am a Bible-believer, a Christian-Zionist (one who believes the Prophets foretold the restoration of Jews first of all 12 Tribes of Israel to the Promised Land of Israel before the end of this world as we know it). I am not a Protestant or a "Jew for Jesus" and certainly not a member of the Roman Catholic Cult. I am a baptized member of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God (who believe the plain truth of the Bible that Herbert W. Armstrong taught).

It grieves me when I'm on various Jewish sites, pro-Israel sites, and some vainly try and pigeonhole my calls for Jews to follow Judaism to the Jewish Homeland to become better Jews and falsely accuse me of only "wanting Jews to die so Jesus can return." Nothing could be further from the truth! (Away with stereotypes! Are all Jews rich or liberal?). I share what Judaism teaches about aliyah (ascent, emigration to Eretz Yisrael - the Land of Israel). Did the Ramban want Jews to return to Zion and die so Jesus could return? Preposterous, eh? Indeed.

I also do not fall for the rapture myth, as some allege, striving to substantiate their theories as to why I have such a great love for Jews and Israel, failing to grasp that I truly believe in the Israelite origins of the West, especially the revelation of Joseph as the Anglo-Saxon peoples, as taught by Brit Am Israel and others, and am convinced the Jews are the ethnic brethren of British-Israelites (contrary to those groups who reject the Jews as illegitimate), and that the Land of Israel is also our ancient and future inheritance. This precious knowledge and love for klal Yisrael (all Israel, collective 12 Tribes) is my God-given motivation and why I yearn to return to Zion and stay attached to it while in exile (due to an unjust deportation I've suffered for highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount under illegal Nazi-Muslim occupation).

The Bible clearly teaches, recognized by both Jews and Christians, that the Jews would again be living in the Promised Land of Israel in preparation for the coming of King Messiah. Judaism teaches it "hastens the day of redemption" and Christians say "amen." We can agree on that point and permit time to tell who fulfills the prophecies completely, as all will be revealed and Israel and Judah will be reunited, reconciled, and Jerusalem saved from Gentile occupation. The Jews also believe that Elijah will herald the coming of the King to fulfill the Prophets and teach Torah, and Christians know the chief spokesman between the Two Witnesses will announce - in the spirit of Elijah (who is dead and buried) - the Kingdom of God.

I want Jews to return to Eretz Yisrael because it is loving obedience to God, as well as Israel's future construction of the Third Temple, the Temple of God (not just of the Jews as some slander) even though Israel must be warned not to trust Europe's lying guarantees of peace and security or their imminent Antiochus Epiphanes who will betray Israel and occupy Jerusalem and pollute the Temple of God, if they're not careful to hear and heed the Prophets.

Despite unwarranted hatred from some hypocritical Jews who treat all Christians shamefully, failing to distinguish between those who are honest friends of Jews and Israel and those who aren't, I want to express unconditional love to help save Jews from physical and spiritual harm. I want Jews to live and prosper and love and obey God and be blessed rather than to continue to suffer escalating divine punishments for sin that will only intensify (Dan. 9:11). I hope to help avert another holocaust, one that will target the British-Israelites (the "Lost Ten Tribes") and Jews, ignited by the German-dominated EU under Roman Catholic influence.

May all 12 Tribes of Israel remember our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities, turn from our national idolatry and immorality (2 Chron. 7:14), and be restored to world power and prosperity and ascend even greater heights of glory as a truly United Kingdom, One Nation Under God.

Diversity Demands: Segregate Now!

The more white Israelite people try to ignore the issues of race, the more race will get in our face (Dan. 9:11). It is in the best interests of every race to SEGREGATE NOW.

Ideally, Blacks (for example) would have enough self-esteem to voluntarily return to Africa - their ROOTS - and build up there with all the know-how they've received (or were offered) in the United States - the biblical inheritance of Joseph.

To build upon comments by the Mayor of New Orleans, see Chocolate Continent Awaits the Great Black Return!

However, this issue is not just about black and white. The illegal influx of Mexicans must stop and immediately be reversed with their mass expulsion by this "land of laws."

May 1: Illegal Immigration Day Defused! - otherwise "Law, without force, is impotent" - Cicero.

This is not only about race, but ideally our white Jewish brethren (yes, they are white despite hateful lies about Jews being Khazars, contrary to the clear Scriptures and many biblical prophecies that state otherwise) should voluntarily follow Judaism to the Jewish Homeland, as Judaism requires, to become better Jews and have the unique opportunity to fulfill many more mitzvot (commandments) and be blessed.

Race matters whether folks want to acknowledge it or remain in denial, until it's too late.

God bless us all to live within the designated borders of diverse nations our Great Creator has decreed for us, all revolving around the 12 Tribes of Israel whom God alone has called to ultimately become His Servant Nation, a light to all nations, a truly United Kingdom, One Nation Under God.

8 When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations,

When He separated the sons of Adam [even though we're all family],

He set the boundaries of the peoples

26 And [although] He [God] has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth [we're all human]... [yet He] has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings...

Strangers in our own Land?

A revealing email from Israeli Yehoshua Friedman.
Rabbi Friedman and his wife Janet are among the original founders of Kochav HaShachar, a Jewish Pioneering Community in the Israelite Tribal Territory of Eretz Binyamin (Land of Benjamin), located in what is today known as the Shomron (Samaria).

22 Av, 5766 (August 17, 2005)


I just thought of you being banned from Israel in juxtaposition with my son-in-law, Yehoyariv Maguri, who built a house for himself, his wife (my daughter) Esther and baby son Avraham on the hilltop of Givat Ronen near Har Bracha in the Shomron.

A couple of months ago he received an administrative order signed by Defense Minister Peretz banning him from entering the entire area of Judea and Samaria (with the exception of the city of Ma'ale Adumim).

Yehoyariv is a young man from a Yemenite family, a Cohen with an ancient lineage, who is connected to the bedrock of his being with the land of Israel, Jewish labor, growing things on, walking the land as a free Jew. For him the deep connection to the land transcends the bureaucratic statements of government officials about where the borders are to be and which foreign leader's boots we are meant to lick this week. The land, the people and Torah of Israel are eternal.

May G-d protect him, his family and all of us.


Shalom Yehoshua,

Your son-in-law, Yehoyariv Maguri, sounds like a wonderful person to whom I can relate with his great love for God, klal Yisrael and THE LAND. Perhaps it's from being raised for the first 11 years of my life on a farm that I wholeheartedly love the land, and which is why I wanted to live throughout the Land on 8 different kibbutzim to truly get a feel for the Land, to see the sun, moon and stars from different regions of Eretz Yisrael that God has placed in their positions.

Your heartrending tale further shows how the secular government persecutes the righteous, even the Cohanim, and would restrict movement in the Jewish Homeland like the worst of the Gentiles.

May HaShem continue to bless your family, your son-in-law, Yehoyariv, your daughter Esther and baby grandson Avraham and bless me to soon meet them!


Psalm 102:11-17

11 My days are like a shadow that lengthens,
And I wither away like grass.
12 But You, O LORD, shall endure forever,
And the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.

15 So the nations shall fear the name of the LORD,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
16 For the LORD shall build up Zion;
He shall appear in His glory.
17 He shall regard the prayer of the destitute,
And shall not despise their prayer.

Beware German soldiers on Israel's border!

Role of multinational force in Lebanon explored


MONTREAL - Avi Primor, a respected Israeli diplomat, is a former Israeli ambassador to Germany and the European Union, and a former vice-president of Tel Aviv University. He is currently director of European studies at the interdisciplinary centre of Herzliya University.

Primor, who is close to Israeli Defence Minister Amir Peretz, has, from the beginning of the war with Lebanon, been responsible for evaluating the possibility of deploying an international military force in southern Lebanon.

In an interview from his home in Tel Aviv, Primor discussed the war.

Canadian Jewish News: Could the international community force Israel to accept a ceasefire?

Primor: In the final analysis, the situation is this: no one wants war and everyone wants a ceasefire, but it depends on the conditions. If we’re talking about having a ceasefire imposed on us, as Hezbollah, Iran and Syria are asking, in order to preserve the status quo ante, it’s out of the question. The situation in southern Lebanon has to change drastically, completely.

At the moment, the Lebanese army is too weak to deploy troops in southern Lebanon. The other possibility is to call on a strong international force capable of fighting the Hezbollah militia and allowing the government in Beirut to impose its authority on all of southern Lebanon. If these conditions were met, then there could be a ceasefire. Meanwhile, Israel must continue to fight Hezbollah, and at the same time, prepare the ground for the deployment of an international force.

CJN: What role does Israel see for this multinational force?

Primor: This would have to be very different from other peace forces that have been sent to the Middle East. It would be an international force modelled on the multinational force that was established in Kosovo, or the one that attacked Iraq in 1991 to liberate Kuwait. It would be a combat force, not a force of observers.

A few days before her first visit to Lebanon and Israel, American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the same thing – that any international force must have the mandate and the military potential needed to be active rather than passive like the UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) soldiers now stationed in southern Lebanon.

CJN: Is this multinational force likely to be in place soon?

Primor: No, it would take several weeks to deploy. The troops have to be organized, with the approval of their governments, once the governments have the approval of their respective parliaments. The military intervention force will also need to have a clear mandate from the United Nations.

CJN: Would this force operate under the aegis of the United Nations?

Primor: No. This military force would not be under the direct command of the United Nations, but probably under that of NATO. The UN will only give its approval to the military force to give it international legitimacy.

CJN: Do you think the Lebanese government will agree to collaborate with this international intervention force?

Primor: It’s in the Lebanese government’s best interest to collaborate closely with this multinational force whose principal mandate will be to disarm Hezbollah. Without the help of the political authorities in Beirut, the military force will not be able to accomplish its objectives.

CJN: What are the main countries that will provide soldiers for this international military force?

Primor: The countries Israel would like to see participate are the ones that have a stake in Lebanon. First of all, France, which has a stake in and an emotional attachment to Lebanon and a military force that can carry out this type of foreign mission. The French military has already proven itself in several countries. But France can’t and doesn’t want to do this work alone. It will probably receive support from other European military forces, certainly from Germany.

CJN: Is it possible that the presence of German soldiers on Israel’s northern border will make Israelis uncomfortable?

Primor: Yes. The majority of Israelis would view with disfavour any deployment of German military forces along the Israeli-Lebanese border. Any accidental confrontation would have dramatic consequences for both Israel and Germany. But if there are German forces, I think they would have to take on two important tasks: helping with logistics, and stationing troops in northern Lebanon along the Syrian border to prevent the passage of Iranian arms coming to Lebanon through Syria.

CJN: Will the high number of Lebanese civilians who have died in IDF bombings of Hezbollah positions in southern Lebanon weaken the support of western governments for Israel?

Primor: I don’t share that view. On the contrary, I believe it has been a very long time since Israel has had the benefit of such strong international support, including that of Europe. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t critics or concerns. The images that are being shown – you see them more than we Israelis do because our television stations protect us from them – are tragic images. You must understand that no sensitive human beings can remain indifferent to these images.

I attended some of the conversations that Condoleezza Rice had with top Israeli politicians during her first stop in Jerusalem. Eighty per cent of these discussions dealt with humanitarian issues in Lebanon. Nevertheless, Rice, like the Bush administration, unconditionally supports the State of Israel. She does not want a ceasefire. On the contrary, she wants Israel to continue to fight Hezbollah. There are even a fair number of Americans who are pushing us to attack Syria.

Yet the American politicians are very aware of the humanitarian crisis in Lebanon. And American public opinion, like public opinion anywhere in the world, is very sensitive to the war images coming from Lebanon. Still, the fact that European public opinion is also very sensitive to these dreadful images doesn’t mean that it does not support Israel in her war, which is a just war, a war of defence against the Islamist forces that attacked us.

CJN: In an interview with the newspaper Le Monde (July 27), French President Jacques Chirac said: “In this conflict, the blame is obviously shared.” Did that declaration shock Israelis?

Primor: Of course it shocked us. But you must understand that France has always been very sensitive toward Lebanon. The country is, in a way, its precious child. In addition, if France has to be at the forefront in southern Lebanon, it doesn’t want to alienate a majority of Lebanese. It wants the popular support of the Lebanese people. France can’t support Israel unconditionally because it would have very little credibility with the Lebanese.

I understand France’s position. But I can also tell you that in private conversations we have had with French political figures, we have seen that the French position is not so black-and-white.

CJN: In this conflict, English-speaking countries, specifically the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia, are supporting Israel, whereas non-anglophone countries, especially in Europe, are criticizing – some vehemently – Israel’s entirely legitimate response to the Hezbollah attacks. How do you explain this?

Primor: I don’t know how the situation appears in Canada, but the United States and England are both in an all-out war, in Iraq and Afghanistan, against Islamist terrorist forces. These two countries, both directly affected by Islamist terrorism, are more sensitive to Israel’s struggle against terrorist organizations. Europe, with the exception of England, is not present on these battlegrounds.

CJN: Is this conflict likely to significantly tarnish Israel’s image in the world?

Primor: I think Israel’s image will depend a lot on the outcome of this conflict. If this war ends with Hezbollah being significantly weakened, international law being imposed, and the restoration of the legitimacy of the government of Beirut in all of the Lebanese territory, I believe the overall result for Israel will be positive, although there will always be critics.

CJN: Is it possible that the presence of German soldiers on Israel’s northern border will make Israelis uncomfortable?

As well it should!

The Plain Truth About the "Lost Ten Tribes" and Why You Need to Know!

Realists are not racists!

It is an UNDENIABLE FACT that white people have contributed far more to world civilization than any other race. According to my understanding a "racist" would say such creative/intellectual superiority is inherent. At this point, until proven otherwise, I believe it is not inherent but results from contact with our Great Creator God, as the white Israelites have been chosen to be the Servant Nation and bless all mankind (which, generally speaking, we have done) and are unique in this regard. Due to such a special calling, we have been inspired, blessed, because we're the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

It is actually amazing that white folk have been so humble about such an overwhelming, disproportionate contribution to world civilization, as any other race would never let up about it rather than suppress such plain truth. Perhaps most white Israelites acknowledge it is not inherent but by the grace of God for the benefit of all. We are the Firstborn of many nations.

Those who deny these undeniable facts about white people are exposing themselves as legitimate racists (unlike those branded as such by the pc cultists).

It is also an UNDENIABLE FACT that black people have contributed the least to world civilization of all races and peoples, generally remaining a basket case wherever they are, and those relatively few who have contributed anything were under white Israelite influence.

Those who deny these undeniable facts about black people are exposing themselves as legitimate racists (unlike those branded as such by the pc cultists).

To whom much has been given, much is required, and presently the British-Israelites and Jews are too steeped in idolatry and immorality, which is why God is permitting the Nazi-Muslims to nip at our heels, and soon the fascist EU to devour us.

John Mervin: Risingsun, Ohio Pioneer

JOHN MERVIN, one of the early settlers at the site of the present town of Risingsun, is a highly respected resident of that place. Like many of the prosperous and influential men of the day, he has made his way to success through adverse circumstances, and his well-won competence reflects credit upon him.

He is of English birth, having entered upon his mortal career in Leicestershire, January 11, 1824. His father, Thomas Mervin, was a butcher by trade. Our subject was reared upon a farm, near a small village, enjoying only the limited advantages of the common schools. He showed ability in the management and care of horses, and at an early age found employment in that work; but the opportunities for advancement seemed to him discouraging, and he determined to come to America. Leaving his young wife, formerly Miss Elizabeth Riley, he sailed from Liverpool, in April, 1849, in the ship "Joseph Badger," and after a voyage of four weeks landed in New York. The trip to Albany was made by river, from Albany to Buffalo by rail, and from Buffalo he came by lake to Sandusky, where he took the Mad River railroad, then the only one in this region. His destination was Avon township, Lorain county, but by mistake he went to New Haven, Huron county. On learning his error he started on foot for Lorain county, but while en route he was taken very ill in Greenfield township, Huron county, and was cared for by some friendly English people. On his recovery he had but fifty cents left of the sum which he had saved from his earnings for his journey, and a new start in life. This money was spent for wine to stimulate his impaired energies, and instead of going on, he decided to remain there and rent a farm.

In the spring of 1850 his wife rejoined him. She had a difficult voyage, spending four months on the way, and being shipwrecked three times. They lived there for several years, renting different farms in the locality, but in the fall of 1863 they came to Wood county, driving through in a wagon. Mr. Mervin purchased sixty acres of land in Section 36, Montgomery township, where the village of Risingsun now stands. At that time the land was partially improved in the dry portion and a plank house stood near his present home. The swamply part of the farm had to be cleared, however, and there was no small amount of hard work to be done in the first years of his stay; but the rapid development of the locality brought prosperity. He still owns severnty acres of land in the vicinity, and also has ten acres in Jackson township, Seneca county. In 1877 he built a fine residence in Risingsun, which he has since occupied. Mrs. Mervin's death, December 9, 1888, brought deep sorrow to this pleasant home. her remains are interred in Trinity cemetery, Scott township, Sandusky county. They had nine children, all of whom are living: Sarah, Mrs. George Young, of Seneca county; Mary, Mrs. Adam Graber, of Risingsun; George, a farmer in Perry township; Elizabeth, Mrs. Frank Blonde, of Perry township; Eliza and Lucy, who are at home; Frances, Mrs. Benjamin Bates, of Risingsun; Anna, Mrs. Courtland Essex, of the same town, and Hattie, Mrs. Russell Hoover [my great grandmother], of Montgomery township.

Mr. Mervin's parents came to the United States in 1855 or '56, and located in Greenwich township, Huron county, where his father died at the age of seventy-three years. His mother afterward made her home in Wood county with her children, but died in Richland county at ninety years of age. Mr. Mervin is the eldest of six children, all living. Thomas resides in Risingsun; George, in Longley; Elizabeth is the widow of James Brinson, of Huron county; Hannah married John Thompson, of Richland county, and Emma married first the late John Jenney, and second John Winder, of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mr. Mervin possessed in youth a powerful physique, and is still well-preserved, his strictly temperate habits being in his favor. Fond of reading, he has intelligent views on the questions of the time, and his interest in the education of the rising generation has led to severeal years of able service as school director. In principle he is a Democrat, but is not bound by partisan ties in the choice of suitable men for local offices. He is a leading member of the M.E. Church.

Tony Blair's speech concedes defeat

Tony Blair revealed, in his speech to the Los Angeles World Affairs Council, he just doesn't get it (or is at least ordered to appear that way like President Bush). The war on terrorism is a war against Nazi-Muslims, plain and simple. It is not our duty to try and convert those nations to our "values" (doesn't he realize our values, dangerously adrift from our biblical moorings, is what alienates many of the faithful among Islam?). We are called to serve as a "city on a hill," a light to all the nations, a model nation others seek to emulate not immolate!

Contrary to humanist ideas, spreading democracy is not our holy mission. Democracy is not the gospel. It has worked relatively well among our Israelite family of nations with our disposition, but generally fails among those who aren't so inclined to it, who don't share our proclivity for it, as is their prerogative. We're trying to scrub the spots off the leopard and it just won't work!

...we will not win the battle against this global
extremism unless we win it at the level of values as much as force, unless we show we are even-handed, fair and just in our application of those values to the world... My point is that this war can't be won in a conventional way. It can only be won by showing that our values are stronger, better and more just, more fair than the alternative.

They hate and despise our values, and according to Blair's battle plans they would need to accept them for us to win. A dog chasing its tail. They already know what we stand for and have rejected it. According to Blair's diagnosis, their disease is terminal and we've lost the war trying to save them. When they do opt for democracy they elect those of whom we don't approve, who clearly don't share our values, as the Hamas victory blares to those who aren't willfully deaf, dumb and blind.

The banner was not actually "regime change" it
was "values change".

Blair kept bleating about "values change" rather than regime change, and such a "banner" is blown to bits daily by those who don't share or want our values, resisting the forced conversion which the Muslim world correctly see as a new crusade. However, it is not yet a Catholic crusade (will a nuclear jihad against Vienna or Berlin provoke a rapid response from the EU?), and it certainly isn't a Christian crusade - although some embers of biblical influence remain despite the floodgates of hell that have waged war against them, our "values" that have systematically sought to squelch and substitute them with evolution, humanism and relativism - it is a SECULAR CRUSADE, a serious conflict of interests, a culture clash.

This is not just about security or military tactics. It is about hearts and minds about inspiring people, persuading them, showing them what our values at their best stand for.

"War is hell" - not a group hug or liberal classroom! We lost the war when we became entangled in the world of ideas and attitudes rather than stay focused on taking out a hostile regime and leaving Iraq to do whatever Iraq wanted to do - civil war or not. Otherwise we should clear out the area of Arabs and claim it for the British-Israelites, Joes (Joseph isn't Jewish!), as it is part of Greater Israel to the Euphrates, and open it up like the Wild West, offering incentives to pioneers willing to move there and stake out claims. (Besides, we're still in the process of nation building here at home, with many improvements needed and changes necessary. Charity begins at home. Cut off our entangling alliances and bring our troops and money home! Why shouldn't taxpayers money be spent in America - not overseas by foreigners who hate us and would dance in the streets if we fell tomorrow?).

If the Iraqis "elected" to choose another hostile regime making serious threats against us, we could take out that dictator too. We didn't defeat the Japanese or Germans by trying to impress them with our "values" or self-restraint. We fought and won the war and didn't worry about disproportionate use of force or civilian casualties, knowing our enemies are responsible for such and must be held accountable. They started the war, we finished it.

Blair then praised General Sharon for illegally expelling innocent Jews - rewarding terrorism and providing them another base to launch attacks against Israel - preached the nations must force the "peace" issue between Israel and "Palestinians," and promoted an accursed Palestine as the final solution. He should have called for an Anglo-Israeli alliance to defeat our sworn enemies.

Jews and Christian-Zionists oppose such a BIG LIE and remind all the world to go by the Book (Malachi 4:4) and scrap the worthless road map that is leading to the dismantling of Israel, the occupation of Jerusalem, and the fall of the United States and British Commonwealth (due to rot from within and the death blow by fascist Europe from without).

copyright (c) 2001, 2006 by Mr. Aryeh Yosef Gallin

R&B Editor's Notes:

1. This essay was originally distributed through the Root & Branch Information Services on the Ninth of Av, 5761/Sunday, July 29, 2001.

2. The Root & Branch Information Services and Lecture Series is closed for seven months from Rosh Chodesh Nisan (New Month of Nisan, Thursday, March 30, 2006) through Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan (New Month of Cheshvan, Sunday, October 21, 2006). R&B Information Services updates will be issued and lectures will take place monthly during this period.

YERUSHALIYIM, Israelite Tribal Territories of Judah and Benjamin, Kingdom of David and Solomon, United Israelite Kingdom of Judah and Joseph, Erev Tish B'Av (Eve of the Fast of the Ninth of Av), Yom Revi'i, 8 Av, 5766 (Wednesday, August 2, 2006), Root & Branch Information Services [mailto:rb@rb.org.il] [www.rb.org.il]:


Today, on the Ninth of Av, we REMEMBER the destruction of the First and Second Temples of Jerusalem, the Assyrian, Babylonian and Roman exiles, European Catholic Crusades, Spanish and Portuguese Catholic Inquisitions, Ukrainian Chmelnitzki massacres, Nazi German Jewish Genocide (Holocaust), the current Rosh HaShanah War/Philistine Chaos ["Palestine Authority"] Pogrom, and other tragedies that befell and are befalling the Jewish People.

We chant the words of the Book of Eicha (Lamentations), which begin:

"How does the city [Jerusalem] sit solitary, that was full of people!
How isse become as a widow! She that was great among the nations,
and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!"

[Eicha/Lamentations 1:1]


Today, on the Ninth of Av, we also LOOK FORWARD to the fulfillment of the words of the Prophet Zechariah:

"And the word of the Lord of Hosts came to me, saying:
Thus says the Lord of Hosts: The fast of the FOURTH month,
And the fast of the FIFTH, and the fast of the SEVENTH,
And the fast of the TENTH, shall be to the House of Judah joy and gladness,
And cheerful seasons; therefore love you truth and peace'".

[Zechariah 8:19]

Our sages explain that "the fast of the fifth" month "is the Ninth of Av, when the Temple was burnt":
[Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Rosh HaShanah 18b].

"Metzudath David explains that this prophesy [from Zechariah] is for the future, when the above fast days observed by the House of Judah will be joyous occasions for Judah. The House of Israel [Lost Ten Tribes], however, will have its own festivals commemorating the days Israel fasted and mourned".

["The Book of the Twelve Prophets", Judaica Press, page 357]


We look forward to the building of the Third and Final Bet HaMikdash (Temple) of Yerushaliyim and the reestablishment of a Torah-based government with its three branches: the Sanhedrin (Judicial Branch), Priesthood (Legislative Branch) and Davidic Monarchy (Executive Branch), all of which will have their offices on the Har HaBayit (Temple Mount) at the Bet HaMikdash (Temple) of Yerushaliyim.


The Founding Fathers of the United States built the American Biblical Commonwealth on the model of the Ancient Israelite Commonwealth.

For America's Founding Fathers, the Constitution was their Written Torah, Capitol Hill was their Har HaBayit (Temple Mount), the Capitol Building was their Bet HaMikdash (Temple), the Supreme Court (Judicial Branch) was their Sanhedrin, the Congress (Legislative Branch) was their Priesthood, and the Presidency (Executive Branch) was their equivalent of the Davidic Monarchy (George Washington wisely declined the offer to make him first King of the new United States).

The UNPRECEDENTED economic, political, and military power with which the United States has been blessed, rests SOLELY on the basis of that SPIRITUAL POWER with which America's Founding Fathers infused the new nation, and which has been the heritage of millions of Bible-believing Americans for almost four hundred years, since the Puritan Pilgrim Fathers first set foot in the new land.


America must NEVER substitute for faith in the G-d of Israel, that faith which has sustained this great Bible-bae nation for almost four hundred years, a faith in the false, pagan gods of economic, political and military power -- THE gods of OIL -- as it has been counseled to do, for over fifty years since the establishment of the State of Israel, by America's false prophets, modern day equivalents of the false prophets of the Egyptian Pharaoh and those of the Babylonian Nebuchadnezzar.

America is sustained ENTIRELY by its spiritual oil wells which are found in the G-d of Israel, Who has brought the Children of Israel back to the Land of Israel. Those spiritual oil wells will ONLY be found in the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount of Yerushaliyim itself, NOT in the deserts of Arabia or the Persian Gulf.


America MUST move from the "even-handed" approach that has characterized its foreign policy towards Israel for over 50 years to a policy of UNCONDITIONAL, ABSOLUTE, NO-ANDS-IFS-OR-BUTS SUPPORT for heChildren of Israel in ALL of the Land of Israel.

This new foreign policy, an "American Foreign Policy for America", as one commentator calls it, must be based on American recognition of the Covenants: G-d's Noahide Covenant and Laws for all humanity and G-d's Three Covenants with Israel:

The PEOPLE Covenant (G-d chose the Children of Israel to be His People)

The TORAH Covenant (G-d gave His Torah to the Children of Israel)

The LAND Covenant (G-d gave the Land of Israel to the Children of Israel)

America's Founding Fathers believed in G-d. They feared G-d and respected His Covenants. Tragically, far too many of the Founding Fathers' descendents, who may be found among today's ruling American "elites", have forgotten them.


United States President Bush is this moment being advised by his own father, and his father's "friends", to forget the G-d of Their Fathers, who was the G-d of the Founding Fathers of America. That is the G-d of Israel.

If this process of forgetting happens, if America's false prophets will now convince the American President of today to be like the Egyptian Pharaoh of old -- "Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who knew not Joseph" [Shemot/Exodus 1:8] -- this will not only bring more suffering to the Children of Israel in the Land of Israel. It will bring suffering to Americans, in America, as well.


We, the Children of Israel, have suffered enough during the First Seven Year Shmittah (Sabbatical Year) Cycle of the Oslo Death Process (1993-2000).

We are now suffering even more as we proceed into the Second Seven Year Shmitth
If the above mentioned process of forgetting the G-d of Israel in America happens (much of the rest of the world has long ago forgotten, assuming they ever remembered Him in the first place), NO NATION that oppresses Israel, or stands by while others oppress Israel, may consider itself safe from the scourges of biological, chemical and nuclear warfare; global warming, unprecedented plagues, famines, droughts, earthquakes, floods; city-killer size asteroids, meteorites and comets; social and political upheavals.

Not even America.

The nations of this world can have all the G-8 meetings they want at any local Seven Eleven, and U.N. meetings, such as the upcoming one to consider whether or not "Zionism is racism", while marching to Pretoria. It makes no difference whether these meetings will be held in a South African shantytown, "Third World" slum, or "First World" metroplis.
These nations would be well advised to heed the words of the Prophet Jeremiah, who proclaimed:

"Israel is the Lord's hallowed portion,
His first-fruits of the increase;
All that devour him shall be held guilty,
EVIL shall come on them, says the Lord".

[Yirmiyahu/Jeremiah 2:3]


The last flood was by water. The next flood may be by (nuclear) fire. Israel is Noah's Ark in the coming flood. That is: the G-d of Israel spiritually, and the Land of Israel physically.

Every Jewish community outside of the Land of Israel is a Dunkirk waiting to be evacuated.

Those who are wise among the Children of Israel will pack their bags and come home NOW.

Those who are wise among the Gentiles will come quickly over to the winning side, which is the side of the G-d of Israel and His People, the Children of Israel.

"And the idols shall utterly pass away.
And men shall go into the caves of the rocks,
And into the holes of the earth,
From before the terror of the Lord,
And from the gloryf His majesty.
When He arises to shake mightily the earth.
In that day a man shall cast away
His idols of silver, and his idols of gold,
Which they made for themselves to worship,
To the moles and to the bats;
To go into the clefts of the rocks,
And into the crevices of the crags,
From before the terror of the Lord,
And from the glory of His majesty.
When He arises to shake mightily the earth.
Cease you from man, in whose nostrils in a breath;
For how little is he to be accounted!"

[Yeshiyahu/Isaiah 2:18-22]
