Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
be ye therefore wise as serpents,
and harmless as doves.

Matthew 10:16

WISE AS DOVES, HARMLESS AS SERPENTS:

The Christian Left and Church Complicity
in the New Fascism

PART III

The Last Man Standing

Isa 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Isaiah 17:13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

Leftists in Evangelical garb[1] are the pre-military ‘spoilers’ of Isaiah 17:14. The christian left have become the ‘useful idiots’ of Fatah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. This I do not say lightly because it grieves my heart that it is so, and especially in light of the disgusting church complicity in the last Holocaust.[2]

While at a Q & A meet-and-greet session after a conference, one affiliate of a Christian ministry boasted of having been housed for several days with a Fatah police Colonel. He spoke of what a gracious host the Colonel proved to be.[3] Just this last week we heard of the murder of Ben Yosef Livnat – unarmed and shot at point-blank range by a PA soldier as Livnat departed the synagogue at Joseph’s tomb in Shechem during Passover. The lame-stream media found it unworthy of coverage.

The issue of the content of the Fatah Charter, the Hamas Covenant and the deeds of sadistic terror these organizations have performed routinely against innocent Jewish and Christian men, women and children are of little concern to these Christian champions-of-the-oppressed. They are also little concerned about the 2000 year history of pogroms against the Jews and the consistent instigation by either church or Jihadists. They are little concerned that their leftist and Muslim allies’ demonization, de-legitimization and double-standards have proven historically to be a prelude to attempted extermination. They are unconcerned that this time it is virtually a global phenomenon. The incitement rhetoric contained in the Arab-Palestinian schoolbooks, the existential threat of nuclear attack breathed out by Iran and informally ratified by Fatah and Hamas, are seldom mentioned, or passively decried. But they will stand with the ‘genocidals’ till the splatter of Jewish blood against the walls finally embarrasses them. To date it has not.

Hundreds of examples including the disgusting slaughter of Tali Hatuel and her 4 little girls and a baby boy in her womb (allegedly deemed by Amnesty International to be a crime against humanity)[4] in pre-Hamas Gaza; the butchering of the Fogel family in Ithamar just recently (including the stabbing death of a 4 month old baby) are selectively deleted. Apparently not enough. Christian-Arab apologists for the slaughter toe the Fatah/Hamas party line: “for every Jewish child killed we can state 10 Palestinian children killed by Israelis” (without evidence; without reference to the countless retractions of alleged Israeli atrocities).

The holocaust began with WORDS. The progressive demonization and isolation of the Jewish people[5] was followed by the removal of their civil and human rights. It could not have happened without the brilliant, systematized Nazi propaganda machine of Joseph Goebbels. It is happening again in the global media and at the very institution set up to prevent further war and genocide: the United Nations.[6] Christians are once again accomplices but this time not by silence, but by active participation.

Hitler told Europe what he intended to do. No one believed him.

HE DID IT.

Hamas, Fatah, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian Ayatollahs have told us what they intend to do. No one believes them.

THEY WILL DO IT.

Hitler used the evangelical Christians of Germany from 1924 till the holocaust as dupes in his extermination program. It’s happening again.

King Christian X of Denmark wearing the 'yellow star'

For Christians by becoming good, liberation activists, they avoid persecution by their Israel-hating comrades. The theological rationale is un-Biblical.[7] The Christian left and their allies the anarchists, communists and Muslim activists hate the so-called Christian-Zionist more than they hate Israel. What the ‘wise-as-doves’ left don’t seem to realize is that their allies-of-convenience hate them as well. In their naïve utopian dreamland, if the ‘Christian-right’ abandoned Israel and they were no longer capable of self-defense there would be peace in the Middle East. But they should look to their deceased Socialist-International member and past Prime Minister of Israel – Golda Meir to set them straight as to what would be the consequence of an insecure Israel. As the tragic truth is stated: “If the Arabs lay down their arms there will be peace in the Middle East. If Israel lays down her arms, there will be no more Israel in the Middle East”.

. . . it may seem strange that any professed Christian should enter a protest against the modern pacifist movement. . . We believe however, that that movement is dangerous, and that it has no necessary or legitimate part in the evangelical Christian program (pp. 10,11)

Earlier in the pages he states: We desire peace, but we realize there are some things worse than war. We desire peace, but not the kind that is found in the cemetery or in the slave camp.[8] Loraine Boettner

Neville Chamberlain’s foreign policy (appeasement) is alive and well today. It worked so well with Czecholsavakia in 1938 that it is the predominant approach of the liberal democracies of the West. The outcome will be the same as it was in Europe in the ‘30’s: war, and just as in that war the Christian peaceniks will aid and abet.

When one state for example, unjustly wages war on another, resistance on the part of the state which is the victim of aggression is nothing more than the application of the same principle. . . [earlier mentioned Rom. 13:4-6; 1Peter 2:14]. . . To plead pacifism or non-resistance under such conditions is to annul the New Testament teaching that the civil magistrate is sent by the Lord to punish and suppress evildoing and to maintain the order of justice and well-doing, and peace.” [9] John Murray

But western abortion-loving, pornography-consuming, morally-relative, multi-cultural liberalism is auto-genocidal.[10] Christians are supposed to know better than to ‘drink the Kool-Aid’.

The Islamist ‘fifth column’ has thoroughly infiltrated Western Europe and North America. Their allies are now spreading THE LIE in the heresy-ridden Western church. We are repeating 1937-39 as though it never happened.

In the build-up to the next Holocaust, the Christian-left are indeed; “. . . wise as doves and innocent as serpents. . .” In allying with the enemies of God’s people (Jew and Gentile) they are knowingly or unknowingly serving the purpose of ‘the serpent’. ‘We’ are without excuse.

THE LAST MAN STANDING: uniquely demonized, delegitimized and subject to gross double-standards by the most powerful nations and institutions in the world: continuously attacked by their neighbours, boycotted by so-called ‘charitable institutions and subjected to public threats of extermination by the world’s ‘peace-keeping’ body; no other nation on earth (including brutal, genocidal, totalitarian dictatorships) are subject to such orchestrated derision.

We of the ‘yellow star’ stand also with those courageous, persecuted Arab believers who love the Jews as Christ told us to love them. We ‘Jew-lovers’ Arab and non-Arab will stand alone, even in the so-called ‘church’.

As a high school student in the 1960s I saw the textbook coverage of the Holocaust in stark, horrifying black-and-white, photos. It is significant that they are no longer shown in high school textbooks. The change of world view which has shifted toward a leftist re-write of history has paved the road for the new anti-Semitism. It is not a coincidence that photos of the holocaust have been removed: after all they might ‘offend. . . ‘

As I gazed upon those photographs in 1964 I asked myself what I would have done in such circumstances. I believe I’ll have the chance to find out.

“. . . SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK”

Hamlet Act 1, scene 4, 87–91

It was the proud Danish response to attempted fascist totalitarian control during the Nazi occupation of Denmark during World War II that inspired this blog. Just in the past week that history has been over-written by appeasement and capitulation.

Whereas Holland did the right thing and acquitted Geert Wilders (protecting at least a modicum of free speech in Holland against those who would stifle all dissent) Denmark convicted Free Speech advocate Lars Hedegaard of violation of their hate-speech legislation. [1]

§ 266b of the Danish penal code:

“Whoever publicly or with the intent of public dissemination issues a pronouncement or other communication by which a group of persons are threatened, insulted or denigrated due to their race, skin colour, national or ethnic origin, religion or sexual orientation is liable to a fine or incarceration for up to two years.”

The larger issue is the same as in the Geert Wilders case. It should not be a fine distinction within jurisprudence whether or not it is a violation of hate-speech legislation to ‘blow the cover’ off an anti-democratic, authoritarian and basic-human-rights-violating ideology. As a result of this verdict, it appears that what matters more than truth in modern, post-Christian Denmark is whether or not a powerful and threatening group feels insulted by the facts.

The religio-cultural practices of Islamist ideology are clearly on record: dressing women in black in 40 degree Arabian temperatures, genital mutilation (WHO reports 2 million per year), purchase of nine-year-old girls for marriage and introduction into Saudi harems, treating women as property, honour-killings, public flogging, stoning and Koranic permission for corporal punishment by husbands. [2] These are well-established and well-reported practices endorsed by various Sheiks and Imams. [3] Authoritarian control in shame-honor cultures prevents adequate reporting of such incidents yet those who attempt to advocate for the rights of these culture-victims within western cultures now face prosecution: so much for liberal-democratic principles.

It is a dark day for Denmark. After the Jyllands-Posten 30 September 2005, ‘Mohammad Cartoon’ incident (which eventually cost the lives of some 20 innocents at the hands of Muslims who felt insulted) it looked as though Denmark was going to support the principle of free expression. But then the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen described the controversy as Denmark’s worst international crisis since World War II . Indeed it was because whereas the Nazi-invasion was not successful in breaking the back of Danish democracy, the Jihadist invasion has been.

The hypocrisy of the leftist Secular Humanist Religionists (SHR) in North America and Western Europe is visceral:

Critics of the cartoons described them as Islamophobic or racist,[5] and argued that they are blasphemous to people of the Muslim faith, are intended to humiliate a Danish minority, or are a manifestation of ignorance about the history of Western imperialism. [4]

While the leftist elitists defend the anti-democratic Sharia forces, the National Endowment for the Arts in the USA will use public funds to display a crucifix in a jar of urine and countless other gross blasphemies against Christians while talk-show hosts mockingly ask the ‘artist’ the question: “whose urine was it”?

Christians did not riot.

The murder of Theo van Gogh (who was ‘convicted’ on the grounds of artistic expression) by a Muslim is of course, inconsequential. After all, he had offended Islam and it is the ‘religion of peace’. The gutless western press remains silent because their presses and studios might be blown up.

But this is just a symptom. Post-Christian, Islamic Europe is now fact, not fiction. The witch-hunts and blasphemy trials have begun in Holland and Denmark and gutless, bankrupt, pathetic Europe will slide into Sharia without even noticing it happened.[5]

In the words of Bruce Thornton:

This self-abasing posture and acknowledgement of Muslim superiority has traditionally characterized the dhimmi whose fate is to be subordinated to Islam. [6]

Instead of ‘Donning the Yellow Star’, post-modern Denmark has donned the Crescent Moon. For saying such things, I may be subject to prosecution.

The story goes that the King of Denmark (during the Nazi occupation of his country) was told of Jews in occupied Europe being required to wear a yellow Mogen David with the inscription ‘Juden’ on it. In response he is said to have put a yellow star arm-band on his uniform as he took his daily horse-ride through the streets of Copenhagen. Then the whole population of Copenhagen donned the yellow star and the Jews of Denmark were saved from being shipped to the extermination camps.

It didn’t happen! But something much better DID happen.

It is a well-known fact that if the Christians of occupied Europe had donned the yellow star, the holocaust could not have taken place: they didn’t and the holocaust did.

What’s happening in the modern world is an escalation of propaganda promising the next genocide against the Jews: it is already at the ‘3-Ds’ phase (delegitimization, demonization and double-standard). It has only been 60 years.

This time the target is embodied in the existence of the Jewish State: Israel.

What did happen in Denmark was that the Legend became more effective than the act it portrayed in that the Danish people began actively smuggling the Jews out of the country [1] and thus spared most from the horrors of the death camps.

“. . . To me, the truth is an even greater honor for our country than the myth.”

Quote from: Danish Queen Margrethe II in the book: Queen in Denmark by Anne Wolden-Ræthinge

In the new propaganda blitz against Israel, the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is enlisted as a symbol for the Palestinian ‘liberation’.

But as Dr. King stated in his “Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend,” Saturday Review_XLVII (Aug. 1967), p. 76.

“And what is anti-Zionist? It is the denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the people of Africa and freely accord all other nations of the Globe. It is discrimination against Jews, my friend, because they are Jews. In short, it is antisemitism.

Reprinted in M.L. King Jr., “This I Believe:
Selections from the Writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

This log is written to encourage all our Christian bothers and sisters to ‘don the yellow star’ in order to prevent the impending holocaust and right a tragic, historic wrong.
