WISE AS DOVES, HARMLESS AS SERPENTS:
The Christian Left
and the Prelude to Genocide
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
be ye therefore wise as
serpents, and harmless as doves.
Vehicles for the Agenda of the ‘Unholy Alliance’
The PLO concept was an artifact of the Soviet High Command, formulated in the early 1960s in order to create a foothold against western democratic hegemony in the oil-rich Middle East. Concurrently they established (through the KGB) a series of similar liberation movements in Colombia, Bolivia and Armenia. It was a Soviet political-military objet d’art. No previous occupying empire, nor the Jordanians (1948-1967) saw any need to generate a Palestinian nationalism in the West Bank or the parts of Jerusalem that Jordon controlled. But Russia did.
So out of a grim, Stalinist dictatorship came a concept that would build on a Nazi foundation. Haj Amin Al Husseini had shared Hitler’s vision of extermination of the Jews and had ample practice at it in Bosnia during WWII. Haj is alleged to have headed up the most brutal SS divisions in the war: the notorious ‘Mountain Division’ that terrorized the Balkan Jewish communities for the duration of the war. It was composed of a variety
of Bosnian and Middle Eastern Muslims who believed what the Koran says about the Jews.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, Fascism is a leftist phenomenon despite Stalin’s attempt to sanitize Communism after Hitler turned on him. The National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) was simply smarter than the Bolsheviks in realizing that the Italian or German working class had nothing in common with the 3rd world worker, but would fight to the death for ‘national’ socialism. Thus the only distinction between communism and fascism is strategic: one is internationalist in its focus, the other ‘nationalist.’
Joseph Stalin (“Papa Joe”) was sanitized during the war against Hitler like Fatah was sanitized in the war against Hamas and now they and the Muslim Brotherhood are all sanitized as the “Arab Spring” immolates the Middle East at the behest of Hezbo-Allah and the Muslim Brotherhood.
‘Papa’ had no problem formulating the Molotov Ribbentrop treaty (which sold out all his ‘useful idiot’ Communist parties in the west) and he of course had no problem slaughtering the Polish Officer corps in the Katyn forest nor a problem waiting strategically at the gates of Warsaw so that Hitler could wipe out the Warsaw Ghetto Jews for him.
The same ideological and strategic ‘greenhouse gasses’ that drove the ‘New Left’ during the late ‘60’s are now evident 35 years later but are emanating from positions of power ! The same old indigestible plant material (Marxism, knee-jerk anti-Americanism, and anti-Israeli blame-game) is issuing from the talking heads on the West’s television news programs and Holly-weird rather than from the Soviet Tass News Agency and Pravda. Tragically it is also issuing from the Whitehouse and the American Christian church.
A case-in-point for the Christian ‘target’ is British Columbia’s Trinity Western University which became a willing accomplice in the process as it provided legitimizing venues for anti-Israeli propaganda films such as Porter Speakman Jr ‘s With God on our Side.
The film features a cute little dance between a Christian and Yasser Arafat (the Cairo-born ‘Palestinian’ who invented skyjacking, suicide bombing, ordered the slaughter of the Israeli Olympic Team in Munich and was responsible for the killing of more Arabs than he did Jews). The audience chuckled. To the film producers Arafat (the Al Husseini nephew) was just another cute, grandfatherly, freedom-fighter.
In the TWU premier of the film, the discussion panel had eight representatives on it, with only one supporting the Israeli position. In an audience of approximately 100 people, only six supported Israel. The event was not a critical review. It was a trial in front of a ‘hanging-judge’. But of course for the Left-Church, Israel has no position. Thus, a so-called Christian seminary became an accomplice to the ‘D’ of ‘de-legitimization’ which is of the three ‘D’s of propaganda-precursors to genocide. The theological rationale for discrediting any Biblical claim of the Jews to their land was quite sophisticated-sounding. It demonstrates a Reform Theological position which entertains some real academic heavy-weights yet carries with it some real eschatological and historical ‘baggage’.
A Response To Questions and Objections of a Certain Jew
Their [the Jews] rotten and unbending stiffneckedness deserves that they be oppressed unendingly and without measure or end and that they die in their misery without the pity of anyone.
from “Ad Quaelstiones et Objecta Juaei Cuiusdam Responsio,” by John Calvin; The Jew in Christian Theology, Gerhard Falk, McFarland and Company, Inc., Jefferson, NC and London, 1931.
Then Vancouver BC’s Missionsfest included the Jim Hanon and Mart Green film: Little Town of Bethlehem. The film Old Radicals which preceded it, lionized Left-Christian interference with the IDF in exercising anti-terrorist measures. Filled with the new ‘prototypic’ Christian-pacifism, it was mercifully bereft of theological content and pregnant with moral-relativism and ecumenism. It ignored the political and military realities of Israel (though making the occasional milquetoast disclaimer about Israel’s right to defend itself).
Well, he got no allies to really speak of
What he gets he must pay for, he don’t get it out of love
He buys obsolete weapons and he won’t be denied
But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side
He’s the neighborhood bully.
Well, he’s surrounded by pacifists who all want peace
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease
Now, they wouldn’t hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep
He’s the neighborhood bully.

The film totally mis-represented Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s position on Zionism and appropriated his memory to the Palestinian cause. Throughout the film, large posters of the world’s most successful terrorist (Yasser Arafat) were displayed without qualifying comment. But why not. He of course got the Nobel Peace Prize.
Just as in the Western ‘drive-by-media’ the story of sadistic murders, child killings and maiming, lynching, rocket attacks, mortar attacks and family slaughter by the ‘peace-loving’ Palestinians is ignored for fear of offending CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations). No radical-young-Christian-film-maker has seen the need to tell the story of the Jewish refugee crisis of 1947-48, the current bombing of Sderot or Ashkelon or the Skud attacks on Tel Aviv or the constant attacks against the civilians of the Negev Kibbutzim. None of them cover Colonel Richard Kemp’s account of Israel’s historic and heroic attempt to prevent civilian causalities in Operation Cast Lead (Gaza, 2008). The Israeli Defense Forces in fact made military history in their prevention of civilian casualties but this fact is of course drowned out in the cacophony of screaming leftist and Muslim voices quoting the scandalously, pathetically biased Goldstone Report.
TWU then regrettably went on to have a symposium entitled: Christians and the Middle East Conflict in March 2011. No Israelis (heaven-forbid with a pro-Israeli or Zionist position), no so-called ‘Christian Zionists’ and no Messianic believers were either panel-members or keynote speakers: it was another show-trial in dry academic garb.
For all intents and purposes the Israeli position nor the much maligned and stereotyped ‘Christian Zionism’ had any position worth accounting for. Except for the 8 or 9 attendees who kept asking embarrassing questions from the audience there was simply no balance but of course, neither does the lame-stream media when it comes to Israel.
At TWU, the keynote and panel academics lightly touched the issues of the genocide against (and persecution of) Christians by Palestinian Muslims and Jihadists, the threatened genocide against Israel, the German-Fascist ideological roots of the PLO, global Islamist terror against Christians and Jews and the very existence of a hypocritical, orchestrated, global propaganda-campaign against Israel. It was a de facto ‘conspiracy of silence’ just as in the non-Christian universities which don’t entertain any guest speakers that don’t agree with their anti-Israeli positions (speakers like Geert Wilders, Ann Coulter, Mark Stein, Ezra Lavant, Noni Darwish, David Horowitz, Dr. David Hocking, Whalid Shoebat, Israeli spokespersons etc etc etc etc need not apply).
Al Jazeera would have been much more balanced.
“. . . God on Our Side paraded the discredited Jimmy Carter talking points that cost the Carter Centre 14 advisory board members in January 2007. Carter’s piece Palestine: Peace not Apartheid had more factual errors than pages in the book yet the audience of approximately 100 people in a Trinity Western University lecture hall, all heralded “ . . . on our Side. . . “ as ‘courageous’, when in fact it was nothing more than a Christian-spin side-bar to an Al Jazeera, CNN or the BBC nightly news item.
So, ‘courageously’ the Christian Left join the main-stream lynch-mob against Israel as their comrades from the Unholy Alliance applaud: useful idiots as in Nazi Germany. Blissfully unaware of the history of how the left and the Jihadists treat Christians, they enjoy the temporary glow of approval only till the Unholy Alliance gains power. Then they become Kafir, enemies of the non-separated ‘mosque-and-state’.
In the words of the old totalitarian proverb: “. . . and when they came for the Jews I said nothing. . .and when finally they came for me, there was no one left to speak.” . . . “

 These include RC Sproul, D. James Kennedy, Naim Ateek, John Stott and Gary Burge. But implied in their eschatology is the bizarre contention that the book of Revelation happened in 70AD and that the Lord returned then as per Zechariah 14:2. Further, they carry the congenital anti-semitism of John Calvin http://www.yashanet.com/library/fathers.htm
