“Stop Worshipping Me, I Am Not The Real Jesus” ~Actor Robert Powell



“I will bow to this King, said Steven.”

Since he played the character, Jesus, in the 1977 movie, Jesus of Nazareth, Robert Powell’s photos are hung in churches, homes, cars, schools, offices and many holy grottos all over the world to drive off evil forces and attract good fortunes.

However, Powell has cried out in the social media that he is not Jesus and that people should stop worshiping him. Rather, they should respect the true Jesus and worship God. His is among the most trending stories on social media in January 2016.

In his words: “I never cease to say and I repeat it to the world since 1977. I am not Jesus Christ, I am just an actor and British comedian. I am tired of seeing my photos displayed in places of worship and other places for worship. I just make a film for a living. Burn my picture and worship the only God in truth ! I am just an actor…Jesus is Lord!*”

Another actor who played Jesus is Jim Caviezel. According to clipd.com, “Jim is arguably one of the most famous portrayals of Jesus in acting history. He played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion Of The Christ,’ which is the greatest selling Christian movie of all time. Jim won one award for his portrayal as Jesus, and several other nominations.” He too may soon beg people to stop worshipping him like Powell.

Here Powell’s profile as published by Wikipedia:


Robert Powell as Jesus of Nazareth

“Robert Powell (born 1 June 1944) is an English television and film actor, best known for the title role in Jesus of Nazareth (1977) and as the fictional secret agent Richard Hannay. He is also known for his role as Mark Williams in BBC One medical drama, Holby City, and as David Briggs in the sitcom The Detectives alongside Jasper Carrott.

His distinctive voice has become well known in advertisements and documentaries, especially in World War II documentaries such as World War II in HD Colour, Hitler’s Bodyguard, The Story of the Third Reich and Secrets of World War II.

Powell was born in Salford, Lancashire, the son of Kathleen (née Davis) and John Wilson Powell. Powell was educated at Manchester Grammar School (where one of his classmates was the actor Ben Kingsley), then a direct grant grammar school for boys in the city of Manchester in North West England, and later at the Royal College of Advanced Technology in Salford.

Powell took up acting while an undergraduate. He had aspired to become a lawyer and in 1963-4 attended an external London University LLB degree Course at the Manchester College of Commerce but at the same time quietly took acting roles under Trevor Nunn. At the College of Commerce he swapped roles with Bernard Brandon in a week-long College Revue of Comedy Sketches to see which role gave him “the best laughs”. This early comedy experience was later to be fulfilled with Jasper Carrott. After this he secured a post at a repertory theatre in Stoke-on-Trent.His first film part was in Robbery when he played the driver of the driver who is coshed in the Stanley Baker film about the great train robbery. He had a small role in the original film version of The Italian Job (1969) playing one of the gang, but had to wait a few years for his first success, playing scientist Toby Wren in the BBC’s science fiction series, Doomwatch in 1970. Having been killed off in the last episode of the original series, at his request, Powell became a pin-up and a household name, following up with starring roles in several BBC serials, including television adaptations of the novels Sentimental Education (1970) and Jude the Obscure (1971). He also appeared in the 1975 series Looking for Clancy, based on the Frederic Mullally novel Clancy.

For several years Powell continued as a television regular, with occasional forays into film, as the Austrian composer Gustav Mahler in the Ken Russell biopic Mahler (1974) and Captain Walker in Russell’s film version of Tommy (1975). His role in Tommy had no lines at all and apart from a few early scenes during the overture with Ann-Margret, he is primarily seen through the mind of his son as played by Barry Winch (Young Tommy) and Roger Daltrey. In one of those scenes Captain Walker is shown in a crucifixion pose.

He then played Jesus Christ in Jesus of Nazareth (1977) following a successful second audition with Franco Zeffirelli. The two-part television film had an all-star cast, including Laurence Olivier, Ernest Borgnine and Stacey Keach, Christopher Plummer, Rod Steiger and James Mason. For this role, Powell was nominated for a BAFTA award, and collected the TVTimes Best Actor award for the same performance.

In 1975, Powell married his girlfriend, the Pan’s People dancer Babs Lord, shortly before he was due to start filming for Jesus of Nazareth on location in Morocco. On 23 November 1977, they had their son, Barney, followed in 1979 by a daughter, Kate.

In 1978, Powell took the leading role of Richard Hannay in the third film version of The Thirty Nine Steps. It met with modest success, and critics compared Powell’s portrayal of John Buchan’s character favourably with his predecessors. His characterisation proved to be enduring, as almost ten years later a television series entitled simply Hannay appeared with Powell back in the role, (although the Buchan short stories on which the series was based were set in an earlier period than The Thirty-Nine Steps). Hannay ran for two seasons.

In 1980, Powell appeared in the film Harlequin, playing the Harlequin of the title who seems to have the power to cure the son of a powerful politician. For this performance, he won the Best Actor Award at the Paris Film Festival. In 1982, he won Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival for his role in Imperativ.

Powell then agreed to a request from his old friend and golf partner, comedian Jasper Carrott, taking the part of an incompetent detective in a succession of sketches that formed part of Carrott’s television series. The Detectives was so popular that it was turned into a sitcom, Powell’s first and only venture into this genre.

In 1984, Powell made his U.S. film debut in What Waits Below (as known as Secrets of the Phantom Caverns).

In 1986, Powell narrated and co-starred in William C. Faure’s popular miniseries Shaka Zulu, with football legend Henry Cele in the title role. In 1992, he starred in the New Zealand World War I film Chunuk Bair, as Sgt Maj Frank Smith. In 1993-1995, he was the voice actor of Dr Livesey in The Legends of Treasure Island.

Nowadays Powell appears in person less often, but his distinctive voice is frequently heard on voice-overs, advertisements and as a narrator of television programmes such as Great Crimes and Trials and The Century of Warfare and World War II in HD Colour. He read the novel Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez for BBC Radio 4’s Book at Bedtime, and has also narrated many audio books including The Thirty Nine Steps, abridged versions of many of Alan Garner’s books, and several abridged novels for ‘The Talking Classics Collection’. Powell has also lent his voice to musical works, such as David Bedford’s album The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,[4] or the 2002 rock opera The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Clive Nolan and Oliver Wakeman, where he played the role of John Watson. He also narrated on two rock albums by Rick Wakeman called Cost of Living and The Gospels (1987).

On 29 October 2001, a state-of-the-art theatre named after him was opened at the University of Salford.[5] He became a patron of 24:7 Theatre Festival in 2004, and continues to operate in this capacity as of 2014. In early 2005 he became a regular in the UK TV medical drama, Holby City, where he remained for six years before departing to return to theatre.[6] On 9 February 2008, he performed as narrator in Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf with the Huddersfield Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Natalia Luis-Bassa in the North of England.[7] He currently has a regular spot narrating literary passages on BBC4’s The Book Quiz and will appear in Aladdin at the Malvern Theatre this winter .

On 20 December 2014, he took on the role of “Ebenezer Scrooge” in Neil Brand’s BBC Radio 4 adaptation of A Christmas Carol.”

Other actors who have played Jesus in movies are:

Jeffrey Hunter, Max von Sydow, Jeremy Sisto, Chris Sarandon, Claude Heater, Henry Byron Warner, Christian Charles Philip Bale, Willem Dafoe, John Rubinstein, Brian Deacon and Cameron Mitchell.

The Protocols

The Protocols Of The Learned Elders of Zion is a book which purports to be a record of the wicked plans and tactics the Jewish elders use to take over the world. The Protocols were actually written in Paris sometime between 1895 and 1899 by an agent of the Russian secret police though Anti-semites don’t think so. In particular, within the last few years there have been several TV series on Arab TV which have assumed this book to be true. I think the whole thing is funny in a sad and twisted wierd way – so here’s my take on it…~Rav Shmuel

THE INTERNATIONAL JEW AND THE FORD MODEL T  The ethnic or “racist” variant of political Jew-hatred

The “Protocols” and the “Great Hoax”

13728912_179032942502102_4320385771374229824_nIf your hero’s were Adolf Hitler and Henry Ford you’ll like the video by an anti-Semite named William Pierce – Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion Explained – Oct. 30, 1999 Thanks, John Paterson, proof, when a person reaches this level of ignorance there’s really not much can be done. The Protocols are a complete forgery most of which was copied from an obscure satire on Napoleon III by Maurice Joly called “Dialogue aux Enfers entre Montesquieu et Machiavel” (“A Dialogue in Hell Between Montesquieu and Machiavelli”).

For anyone not familiar with the facts behind the [exposed forgery] of the Protocols of Zion, the influence Henry Ford had on antisemitism and Jew hatred during the turn of the century in America, may you find this re-post enlightening.

In the 21st Century

Thoughts on the Roots of Anti-Semitism in Europe

Ancient Menorah

Ancient Menorah

The beginning of violent European anti-Semitism is often traced to the Crusades at the end of the eleventh century. Others claim it commenced in 1010 with organized mass murders of Jews in France, followed by massacres in areas that are now part of Germany. For almost a thousand years the many versions of religious anti-Semitism have been accompanied by other manifestations of Jew-hatred in political, economic, and cultural spheres.

The beginning of violent European anti-Semitism is often traced to the Crusades at the end of the eleventh century. Others claim it commenced in 1010 with organized mass murders of Jews in France, followed by massacres in areas that are now part of Germany. For almost a thousand years the many versions of religious anti-Semitism have been accompanied by other manifestations of Jew-hatred in political, economic, and cultural spheres.

A close study of the history of anti-Semitism shows that it is first and foremost an expression of political and cultural opposition to Jewish ideals. The earliest known anti-Semitic writings emanated from the ruling class of the Hellenistic empires of the Middle East, specifically the Ptolemaic empire based in Egypt and the Seleucid empire based in Syria.

From that time to the present, anti-Semitism in its most virulent manifestations has been consistently associated with one empire or would-be empire after another.

The ethnic or “racist” variant of political Jew-hatred began in the late 19th century in Germany. At that time the term anti-Semitism first appeared. Fed also by the religious variety, this culminated in the genocide of the Holocaust.

Anti-Semitism is an extreme form of irrational hate, which should not be confused with strong criticism. Jews have been demonized for millennia and defined as the source of all evil. Other recourses to ancient history are often used in Europe to “point to an immutable negative Jewish character. Jews have also been discriminated against in many societies while, simultaneously, having double moral standards applied to them.

Often enough anti-Semites will point to a refusal on the part of Jews to assimilate to national cultures or “identity” in the geographical locales of which Jews have settled and nurtured successful communities.

  • Jews are bidden to be “a light unto the nations.” (Isaiah 42:6) A light stands separate from that which it illuminates. The Divine charge to the Jewish people is to “be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” (Ex. 19:1) This is a mission from which we cannot resign because it is embedded in the Covenant between God and the nation of Israel.
  • “A nation that will dwell in solitude and not be reckoned among the nations.” (Numbers 23:9)

The Covenant, which God introduced in His promises to the Patriarchs, which was accepted by the entire Jewish nation at Sinai (where all Jewish souls were present), and which was renewed on two other occasions in Jewish history, stipulates the following:

On God’s side, He promised:
That the Jewish people will never cease to exist (Gen.17:7).
That He will never totally abandon the Jewish people (Lev. 26:44).
That the Jewish people will inherent the Land of Israel (Gen.12:7; Gen.15:18).

On Israel’s side, we promised:

That we will be faithful to God and keep His Torah (Ex.24:7).

According to the Torah, unlike most covenants, this one is unconditional. Even if the Jews renege on their obligation, God, in the merit of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, will never annul his covenant with the Jews.

This belief has sparked much debate with varying opinion and it’s not the purpose of this editorial to examine the religious dogma, however many learned intellectuals have made comments of one form or another:

“The Jew is that sacred being who has brought down from heaven the everlasting fire, and has illumined with it the entire world. He is the religious source, spring, and fountain out of which all the rest of the peoples have drawn their beliefs and their religions.”
–Leo Tolstoy
“It was in vain that we locked them up for several hundred years behind the walls of the Ghetto. No sooner were their prison gates unbarred than they easily caught up with us, even on those paths which we opened up without their aid.”
–A. A. Leroy Beaulieu, French publicist, 1842
“One of the gifts of the Jewish culture to Christianity is that it has taught Christians to think like Jews, and any modern man who has not learned to think as though he were a Jew can hardly be said to have learned to think at all.”
–William Rees-Mogg, former Editor-in-Chief for The Times of London and a member of the House of Lords

The “Protocols” and the “Great Hoax”

FrenchEditions of the Protocols

French editions of the Protocols

The conceptual inspiration for the Protocols can be traced back to the time of the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century. At that time, a French Jesuit named Abbe Barruel, representing reactionary elements opposed to the revolution, published in 1797 a treatise blaming the Revolution on a secret conspiracy operating through the Order of Freemasons. Barruel’s idea was nonsense, since the French nobility at the time was heavily Masonic, but he was influenced by a Scottish mathematician named Robison who was opposed to the Masons.

In his treatise, Barruel did not himself blame the Jews, who were emancipated as a result of the Revolution. However, in 1806, Barruel circulated a forged letter, probably sent to him by members of the state police opposed to Napoleon Bonaparte’s liberal policy toward the Jews, calling attention to the alleged part of the Jews in the conspiracy he had earlier attributed to the Masons. This myth of an international Jewish conspiracy reappeared later on in 19th century Europe in places such as Germany and Poland.

The Protocols are a complete forgery most of which was copied from an obscure satire on Napoleon III by Maurice Joly called “Dialogue aux Enfers entre Montesquieu et Machiavel” (“A Dialogue in Hell Between Montesquieu and Machiavelli”).

Elements of the text in the Protocols appears to be plagiarized from an 1864 pamphlet, Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu (Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu), written by the French satirist Maurice Joly. Joly’s work attacks the political ambitions of Napoleon III using Machiavelli as a diabolical plotter in Hell as a stand-in for Napoleon’s views.

Joly himself appears to have borrowed material from a popular novel by Eugène Sue, The Mysteries of the People, in which the plotters were Jesuits. Jews do not appear in either work. Since it was illegal to criticize the monarchy, Joly had the pamphlet printed in Belgium, then tried to smuggle it back into France. The police confiscated as many copies as they could, and it was banned. After it was traced to Joly, he was tried on April 25, 1865, and sentenced to fifteen months in prison. Joly committed suicide in 1878.
The story of the Protocols then continues with a chapter in a novel called “Biarritz” by a German bureaucrat named Hermann Goedesche.  In the chapter, “The Jewish Cemetery in Prague and the Council of Representatives of the Twelve Tribes of Israel”, Goedsche wrote about a nocturnal meeting between members of a mysterious rabbinical cabal, describing how at midnight, the Devil appears before those who have gathered on behalf of the Twelve Tribes of Israel to plan a “Jewish conspiracy”.

In 1871, the story was being presented in France as serious history. In 1872, the “The Jewish Cemetery in Prague”, translated into Russian, appeared in St. Petersburg as a separate pamphlet of purported non-fiction. François Bournand, in his Les Juifs et nos contemporains  (1896), reproduced a speech from the chapter as that of a Chief Rabbi “John Radcliff”.

In 1901 a Russian official in the Chancery of the Synod of Moscow named Sergei Alexandrovich Nilus published a strange work entitled, “The Great in the Little and the Antichrist as a Proximate Political Possibility”. Nilus expressed the view that only the Holy Russian Empire could save the world from the rule of Antichrist.


The Victor Mardsen Translation

The idea behind the book was to bolster the absolute authority of the Czarist regime. In 1905 a second edition of the book appeared with one significant addition – the Protocols!

A secret investigation ordered by the newly appointed chairman of the Council of Ministers Pyotr Stolypin soon determined that the Protocols were authored by operatives of the Okhranka in Paris. The details were not made public to avoid compromising the chief of secret service Pyotr Rachkovsky and his agents, but when Nicholas II learned of the results, he requested:

“The Protocols should be confiscated, a good cause cannot be defended by dirty means”. Despite of the order, or because of the “good cause”, numerous reprints proliferated.

Nilus circulated several editions of the Protocols in Russia as part of an anti-Semitic campaign. Though the early prints were in Russia, the Protocols quickly spread to the rest of Europe by Russian expatriates after the 1917 revolution. Some of them claimed that it provided proof that the Jews were behind the Russian Revolution. Another expatriate Russian, Boris Brasol, brought it to the United States around 1920 where it became the core of Henry Ford’s anti-Semitic program. By the time Nilus died, Europe had been saturated by millions of copies of the Protocols



American Edition of the Protocols

Living the Lie

Just after its appearance in London in 1920, Lucien Wolf exposed the Protocols as a plagiary of the earlier work of Joly and Goedsche, in a pamphlet of the Jewish Board of Deputies. The following year, in 1921, the story of the forgery was published in a series of articles in the London Times by Philip Grave, the paper’s correspondent in Constantinople.

A whole book documenting the forgery was also published in the same year in America by Herman Bernstein. Nevertheless, the Protocols continued to circulate widely. They were even sponsored by Henry Ford in the United States until 1927, and formed an important part of the Nazis’ justification of genocide of the Jews in World War II.

During an interview published in the New York World February 17, 1921, Mr. Henry Ford put the case for the “Protocols of Zion” tersely and convincingly. He said:

“The only statement I care to make about the Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on. They are sixteen years old and they have fitted the world situation up to this time. They fit it now.”

He made this statement when Jewish leaders and the Jewish Press in America were fulminating against a series of articles printed in Ford’s newspaper The Dearborn Independent during the years 1920 to 1922. After some years of pressure such as only organized Jewry can conceive or inflict, Henry Ford was made to apologize to Jewry in a letter addressed to Louis Marshall, then leader of the American Jewish Committee, dated June 30, 1927. Ford’s apology was abject, but neither then nor since did he ever deny the truth of the articles.
Adolf Hitler also wrote on the Protocols in his infamous book Mein Kampf. From Chapter XI: Nation and Race — Volume I: A Reckoning:

. . . To what extent the whole existence of this people is based on a continuous lie is shown incomparably by the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion, so infinitely hated by the Jews. They are based on a forgery, the Frankfurter Zeitung moans and screams once every week: the best proof that they are authentic. What many Jews may do unconsciously is here consciously exposed. And that is what matters!

It is completely indifferent from what Jewish brain these disclosures originate; the important thing is that with positively terrifying certainty they reveal the nature and activity of the Jewish people and expose their inner contexts as well as their ultimate final aims. The best criticism applied to them, however, is reality.

Anyone who examines the historical development of the last hundred years from the standpoint of this book will at once understand the screaming of the Jewish press. For once this book has become the common property of a people, the Jewish menace may be considered as broken.

Spreading the Lie

After the Second World War, proponents of The Protocols often charged that Jews had affirmatively encouraged the Holocaust. Typical of the genre was a Mexican reprint with a cover depicting a Jewish hand behind Nazism—and behind Masonry, Communism, and religious and financial powers. A common charge was the Jews instigated the murder of six million of their co-religionists in an effort to secure the world’s sympathy, whether for the creation of the state of Israel or for other secret objectives.

German version of the Protocols

While there is continued popularity of The Protocols in nations from South America to Asia, since the defeat of Nazi Germany and fascist Italy in the Second World War governments or political leaders in most parts of the world have generally avoided claims that The Protocols represent factual evidence of a real Jewish conspiracy. The exception to this is the Middle East, where a large number of Arab and Muslim regimes and leaders have endorsed them as authentic.

As popular opposition to Israel spread across the Middle East in the years following its creation in 1948, many Arab governments funded new printings of the Protocols, and taught them in their schools as historical fact.

They have been accepted as such by many Islamist organizations, such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Reportedly, Arabic editions issued in the Middle East were found on sale as far away as London. There are at least nine different Arabic translations of the Protocols and more editions than in any other language including German.

The Protocols also figure prominently in the anti-Semitic propaganda distributed internationally by the Arab countries and have spread to other Muslim countries, such as Pakistan, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

During the presidency of Gamal Abdel Nasser, Egypt was the main source of internationally distributed antisemitic propaganda. In 1960, the Protocols were featured in an article published by Salah Dasuqi, military governor of Cairo, in al-Majallaaa, the official cultural journal.

In 1965, the Egyptian government released an English-language pamphlet titled Israel, the Enemy of Africa and distributed it throughout the English-speaking countries of Africa. The pamphlet used the Protocols and The International Jew as its sources and concluded that all the Jews were cheats, thieves, and murderers.

In a foreword to a translation of Shimon Peres’ book The New Middle East, the Egyptian state-owned publisher al-Ahram editorialized in 1995:

“When The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were discovered, some 200 years ago, and translated in various languages, including Arabic, the World Zionist Organization attempted to deny the existence of the plot, and claimed forgery. The Zionists even endeavored to purchase all the existing copies, in order to prevent their circulation. But today, Shimon Peres proves unequivocally that the Protocols are authentic, and that they tell the truth.”

Spanish version

The first Iranian edition of the Protocols was issued during the summer of 1978 before the Iranian Revolution after which the Protocols were widely publicized by the Iranian government. A publication called Imam, published by the Iranian embassy in London, quoted extensively from the Protocols in its issues of 1984 and 1985.

In 1985 a new edition of the Protocols was printed and widely distributed by the Islamic Propagation Organization, International Relations Department, in Tehran.

The Astaneh-ye Qods Razavi (Shrine of Imam Reza) Foundation in Mashhad, Iran, one of the wealthiest institutions in Iran, financed publication of the Protocols in 1994.

Parts of the Protocols were published by the daily Jomhouri-ye Eslami in 1994, under the heading The Smell of Blood, Zionist Schemes. Sobh, a radical Islamic monthly, published excerpts from the Protocols under the heading The text of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion for establishing the Jewish global rule in its December 1998–January 1999 issue, illustrated with a caricature of the Jewish snake swallowing the globe.

Iranian writer and researcher Ali Baqeri, who researched the Protocols, finds their plan for world domination to be merely part of an even more grandiose scheme, saying in Sobh in 1999:

“The ultimate goal of the Jews… after conquering the globe… is to extract from the hands of the Lord many stars and galaxies”.

The Great Hoax today

The Protocols continues to be published and distributed in many nations, and via the internet. A Japanese edition displayed at the exhibition attests to the fact that the actual presence of Jews is not necessary for charges of a Jewish conspiracy to take hold.

Meanwhile, the forgery has found traction in much of the Middle East. Televised dramatizations of The Protocols have appeared on Egyptian television in October-November 2002 and on Al-Manar (Hezbollah) television in 2003. The latter version included scenes depicting Jews  draining the blood of a Christian child as an ingredient in matzah (unleavened bread consumed by observant Jews during the Passover holiday; the actual ingredients are flour and water only).

In 2003, the manuscript library at Alexandria, Egypt reportedly displayed an Arabic edition of The Protocols as an example of a Jewish holy book.

In 2005, Iranian booksellers displayed copies of The Protocols and The International Jew at the Frankfurt (Germany) Book Fair, the world’s largest.

Syrian Edition circa 2005


The American retail chain, Wal-Mart, was criticized for selling The Protocols of the Elders of Zion on its website with a description that suggested it might be genuine. It was withdrawn from sale in September 2004, as ‘a business decision’. It is distributed in the United States by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.
In 2002, the Paterson, New Jersey-based Arabic-language newspaper The Arab Voice published excerpts from the Protocols as true. The paper’s editor and publisher Walid Rabah defended himself from criticism with the protestation that “some major writers in the Arab nation accept the truth of the book.”

No matter where the “Protocols” appear in contemporary society the resounding theme by anti-Semites is that they continue to ring true, that the text somehow “fits” into current world events and International Jewry. Even should some kind of “fit” be found to current events, the Protocols are very general in their descriptions.

They describe plans for wars, political unrest, and economic crises. It’s not too hard to predict the occurrence of any of these things in a general sense, and one observes that these things have occurred more or less continually throughout human history. Thus, the fact that these general facts fit any particular period does not speak to the authenticity of the Protocols in any way. It certainly does not validate the more specific but less demonstrable claims of secret plots and evil conspirators.

Hell, even Nostradamus is more specific in his quatrains then the protocols are to any specific event. Should we continue to worry?

Hmmmmmmmmm. I still often wonder

The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu

The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu  (in the original French Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu ou la politique de Machiavel au XIXe siècle) is a political satire written by French attorney Maurice Joly in protest against the regime of Napoleon III, a.k.a. Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte.

The piece uses the literary device of a dialogue of the dead, invented by ancient Roman writer Lucian and introduced into the French belles-lettres by Bernard de Fontenelle in 18th century. Shadows of the historical characters of Niccolo Machiavelli and Charles Montesquieu meet in Hell in the year 1864 and dispute on politics. In this way Joly tried to cover up a direct, and then illegal, criticism of Louis-Napoleon’s rule.

Dialogue aux enfers, 1864

Joly relates in his 1870 autobiography that one evening thinking of Abbé Galiani’s treatise Dialogues sur le commerce des bleds and walking by Pont Royal, he was inspired to write a dialogue between Montesquieu and Machiavelli. The noble baron Montesquieu would make the case for liberalism; the Florentine politician Machiavelli would present the case for despotism.

Machiavelli claims that he “… wouldn’t even need twenty years to transform utterly the most indomitable European character and render it as a docile under tyranny as the debased people of Asia”. Montesquieu insists that the liberal spirit of the peoples is invincible. In 25 dialogues, step by step, Machiavelli, who by Joly’s plot covertly represents Napoleon III, explains how he would replace freedom with despotism in any given European country: “… Absolute power will no longer be an accident of fortune but will become a need” of the modern society. At the end, Machiavelli prevails. In the curtain-line Montesquieu exclaims “Eternal God, what have you permitted!…”.

The book was published anonymously (par un contemporain, by a contemporary) in Brussels in 1864 and smuggled into France for distribution, but the print run was seized by the police immediately upon crossing the border. The police swiftly tracked down its author, and Joly was arrested. The book was banned. On 25 April 1865, he was sentenced to 18 months at the Sainte-Pélagie Prison in Paris. The second edition of “Dialogues” was issued in 1868 under Joly’s name .

Campaigning against Napoleon III at the French constitutional referendum, 1870, Joly wrote an epilogue to his “Dialogue”. It was published at Le Gaulois and La Cloche magazines.

In the beginning of 20th century Joly’s book was used as a basis for The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an infamous Russian-made antisemitic literary forgery. There is an abundance of evidence that The Protocols were lavishly plagiarized from Joly’s book.

Ford’s Anti-Semitism


Henry Ford’s anti-Semitic views echoed the fears and assumptions of many Americans in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Anti-Semitism in America saw a change in expression and virulence when increased immigration from Europe brought millions of Jews to the U.S. during Ford’s childhood in the latter half of the 19th century. It reached its peak during the mid-1920s: a time when Ku Klux Klan membership had reached four million, Prohibition restricted alcohol consumption, and discriminatory immigration policies were enacted favoring immigrants from northern and western Europe over other parts of the world.

A close friend recalled a camping trip in 1919 during which Ford lectured a group around the campfire. He “attributes all evil to Jews or to the Jewish capitalists,” the friend wrote in his diary. “The Jews caused the war, the Jews caused the outbreak of thieving and robbery all over the country, the Jews caused the inefficiency of the navy…”

In 1918, Henry Ford purchased his hometown newspaper, The Dearborn Independent. A year and a half later, he began publishing a series of articles that claimed a vast Jewish conspiracy was infecting America. The series ran in the following 91 issues. Ford bound the articles into four volumes titled “The International Jew,” and distributed half a million copies to his vast network of dealerships and subscribers. The rhetoric was not unusual for its content, as much as its scope. As one of the most famous men in America, Henry Ford legitimized ideas that otherwise may have been given little authority.

In 2012, American Experience interviewed Hasia Diner, the Paul and Sylvia Steinberg


Hasia Diner

Professor of American Jewish History and Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University, and Director of the Goldstein-Goren Center for American Jewish History to ask her about Henry Ford’s anti-Semitic views and the impact of his public expression of them. Diner is a prolific author and has written many books about American Jewish history, including her 2004 book, The Jews of the United States, 1654 to 2000. Here are excerpts from her interview.

What is the climate of anti-Semitism in America during the late 19th century?
By the 1870s in Europe and the United States, the argument shifts to the Jews as defective. Not Judaism as defective, but the Jew as a particular social type who had defective mental and moral abilities. All sorts of attributions were made to “the Jews.” The Jews killed Christ, the Jews do not want to accept the truth of Christianity, the Jews made money off the war, the Jews are profiteers, the Jews cheat you in business. The Jews have a certain phenotype: the Jew has a hook nose, the Jew is loud, the Jew talks with his hands.

Anti-Semitism came from the top down from elite sources, and from the bottom up from populist sources. It came from the right, and the left. Small towns were no more hotbeds of anti-Semitism than large cities. It could be pretty much anyplace.

What exposure might Henry Ford have had to anti-Semitism when he was growing up on a farm in rural Michigan in the 1870s and 1880s? 

The world that Henry Ford grew up in was one that very likely offered him certain themes about the Jews. He might have heard about them in church, that they were responsible for the crucifixion. He could have heard about them when somebody grumbled about having shopped in a Jewish-owned store and felt that they didn’t get the right price, or that they were sold shoddy goods, that the Jewish shopkeeper was too aggressive in trying to talk them into buying something. There were many places, without being able to put your finger on a specific one in a specific town, in which “the Jew” serves as, at that point of time, almost both a theological and a kind of racialized symbol of forces that people considered to be nefarious.

What kind of things did Henry Ford blame on Jews?
Throughout The Dearborn Independent, Ford published articles that would refer to Jews in every possible context as at the root of America and the world’s ills. Strikes: It was the Jews. Any kind of financial scandal? The Jews. Agricultural depression? The Jews. So “the Jew,” in a way, became the symbol of a world that was being manipulated and controlled.

To me, that’s one of the really crucial forces in this rhetoric — that things didn’t just happen; but rather somebody is orchestrating these developments, and it’s the Jews who are doing it for their benefit. They’re doing it in order [to] gain the twin-linked goodies of power and wealth.

Ford also republished the Protocols of the Elders of Zion — what is that?
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was a notorious forgery that originally came from Russia, and [was] translated into English. [It] claimed the existence of an international Jewish conspiracy — that a group of Jews got together and basically planned the fate of the world, be it financial catastrophe, be it war. The world was controlled by this little cabal of Jews. [This forgery was] printed in The Dearborn Independent as a factual piece. And so someone reading it would take this to be the news.

What separates Ford from other people who were publishing anti-Semitic material during this time?
There are lots of small town newspapers that publish scurrilous anti-Semitic material, so it wasn’t unusual in that way. But what’s notable about The Dearborn Independent is that it was also spread through the Ford Motor dealerships. And so that there’d be stacks of them in a dealership in California, dealership in Massachusetts, a dealership in Iowa. In some places, the dealership would actually put copies of the newspaper in the car, so that when you drove off with your Model T, there you had on the seat next to you a copy of The Dearborn Independent.

And because The Dearborn Independent was published by Ford, it meant that other newspapers would pick up on what he said, and if only in reporting on an article that appeared in The Dearborn Independent, it meant that it got much greater currency than if it had just been a small-town newspaper in some equivalent sized town in Wisconsin or Montana. But this was Henry Ford’s newspaper, and pretty much anything Henry Ford did was news.

What Henry Ford says, people stop and listen. There are people who talked about him as a potential presidential candidate in the 1920s. Some local tavern keeper makes a anti-Semitic remark over the bar, well, nobody cares. Somebody may listen, and maybe repeat it, but it has a very limited span. But Henry Ford’s ability to gain a national audience with his words made him a very dangerous person.

What did the Jewish community think about Ford’s paper?
For the Jews who are reading Ford’s rants in The Dearborn Independent, this is very frightening. Jewish publications in English and in Yiddish are reporting on the material that comes out in The Dearborn Independent. They’re really tracking this.

They’re frightened, I think, for two reasons. One, which is haunting, which is they’re aware of what’s going on in Germany. They see the rise of the National Socialist Party, and they’re tracking that at the same time. And while it’s at a very early date in Hitler’s career, they are really paying attention to what’s happening. It’s also frightening because it’s going on in their home in the United States, where they want to feel like they really belong and that they have served their country and that they are citizens and that they are viewed as real Americans.

And Ford is just about the most popular American, certainly one of the wealthiest; here’s the person whose money and whose influence commands tremendous attention, spewing stuff that’s no different than what Hitler is saying in his beer hall meetings in Munich at the same time.

For the Jews, I think it causes them to really question how really they’re being accepted as Americans. I think it had psychic damage. I think it caused a kind of inward turning, a kind of fear of the larger society. I think it caused them to feel that they had to prove themselves, that it wasn’t just enough that they were sober, honest, hard-working citizens. They had to make these pronouncements about how American they were.

In 1938, Ford received an award from the Nazi regime called the “Grand Cross of the German Eagle.” How do we make sense of this award? What does it mean?
The Germans honor Ford, we could say, for a couple reasons. For one thing, they’re very taken with the whole assembly line technological modernization. The Model T and Volkswagen are sort of similar cars. The idea of the Volkswagen, the people’s car, was to be affordable to the average German. It’s kind of like the Model T of its day; that the automobile shouldn’t just be something for the elite, but it should be a car that the ordinary German could afford. So the Ford Model T and Volkswagen, we might think of as sort of in a similar category.

From the point of view of anti-Semitism, Hitler could look at Ford as somebody who was — let’s call him an age-mate. They were both in the 1920s beginning to write and disseminate information about what they both considered to be this great powerful threat, “the Jew.”

And Hitler was very much inspired by Ford’s writing. And the idea that this could happen in the United States, I think, was very important to Hitler as well, because as people in the United States were speaking out against Nazism and were using a kind of rhetoric, “Well, it could never happen here,” and “We are the bastions of democracy,” I think Hitler would have derived a degree of satisfaction to be able to point to Ford as, in a way, just as good an anti-Semite as he was.

Is it possible to quantify the damage Ford wrought?
It’s hard to say how much damage Ford did. People may have been anti-Semitic without Ford. It’s only intriguing as to the degree to which he may have been responsible, rather than the degree to which he corroborated ideas that were floating out there from other sources.

Hitler was very aware of Henry Ford, of Henry Ford’s writings, and praised them. He turned to the same documents. There’s a common thread. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was a cherished text for both. And there were certainly business connections between Ford Motors and the Nazi regime.

The question is always asked: What did American Jews do in response to the escalating crisis in Europe, after Hitler’s rise to power? And while I think there’s no question they did a lot, they were very active, they were agitated and agitating, to some degree their behavior was tempered. Their sense of what they could do was tempered by the knowledge of how pervasive anti-Semitism was in America. If somebody like Henry Ford, with such power and such wealth, could be such an outspoken anti-Semite — and we know Hitler was very impressed by Henry Ford — then it must be that lots of Americans share those attitudes. And therefore there’s really a limit to what we can do.

If there had been no Henry Ford, would they have been more aggressive? We can’t know that. But I think in their calculus, “How aggressive can we be, pressing for the cause of the Jews of Europe?” “How much can we try: pressure Congress, editorials in newspapers, demonstrations, for example to allow in more German Jewish refugees, or then Polish Jewish refugees?” They were very much aware of the extent of anti-Semitism and the degree to which they-their options were really limited by that attitude out there, in a way, embodied by Ford.



Book blames Nazis for Islamic anti-Semitism

Although, as Liel Liebovitz wrote in his article on Hitler as internet meme (aphenomenon that may be a thing of the past, as the production company behind Downfall, the much-spoofed film that sparked the trend, has filed copyright claims and removed most videos from YouTube), “we know—we feel!—that there could never really be another Hitler to terrify and enrage us so purely as the original once had,” more evidence continues to stoke our furies against the one true Führer.

In his recent book Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World, Jeffrey Herf claims that “The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians would have been over long ago were it not for the uncompromising, religiously inspired hatred of the Jews that was articulated and given assistance by Nazi propagandists and continued after the war by Islamists of various sorts.” One example comes from a 1942 message broadcast to the Middle East in which Hitler announced: “Your only hope for rescue is the destruction of the Jews before they destroy you!” The transcript for this and 6,000 other broadcasts were held as classified by Washington until 1977, and two years ago Herf became the first scholar to examine them.

Give It A Rest

Reblogged from Exploring Judaism/Give It A Rest
11059955_835511339860027_1184495492234181171_n-300x300“…the earth shall rest a Sabbath to Hashem.” (Leviticus 25:2)

This passage refers to the Sabbatical year in Israel where the land was left and not worked every seventh year.

The Baal Shem Tov saw here a cue for us – to give earthiness (the physical and material aspects of life) a rest and to focus on spirituality and holiness.


A general emphasis in Torah is that we should prioritize spiritual over materialistic pursuits in life. In a famous Midrash, the letter Aleph (first letter in the alphabet) complained to God because the Torah begins its account of the creation of the world with the letter Bet (second letter of the alphabet) in the word Bereshis – in the beginning. God comforted the Aleph by telling it that the Ten Commandments would begin with an Aleph. Indeed, the first word of the Ten Commandments – Anochi, begins with the letter Aleph.

Rav Zalman Sorotzkin notes that the first letter of the alphabet is associated with the spiritual teachings of the Ten Commandments revealed at Mt.Sinai while the second letter is associated with the creation of the physical world. He suggests that the lesson here is that the Aleph, first place of our lives should be in the realm of spirituality while the Bet or secondary focus of our lives should be in the earthly/worldly realm.

Choose Good, Feel Great

Choose Good, Feel Great
Secrets to Living Your Best Life

By Rabbi David Aaron


I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your seed ——Deut. 30:19

Goodness that isn’t chosen is not complete goodness. If we didn’t choose goodness—if we were just naturally good, or if goodness was the only option available—how could that be the highest expression of goodness?

I know a fellow that has dozens of guests over at his home every weekend. When I complimented him on his hospitality, he said, “What are you talking about? It comes naturally to me. It’s not a struggle for me. I love to do this!”

Is he really choosing goodness? If it comes naturally, is it complete goodness? Goodness that wasn’t chosen is not the greatest good. Only after you struggle with evil and chose goodness will you accomplish true and complete goodness.

Does God struggle with evil? Can God experience complete goodness through overcoming evil and choosing the good?

Yes, through you and me. God participates in complete goodness through our choices. Our service to God is to choose goodness. That’s why we’re in a world so full of allurements to do evil—so that we can rise to the challenge and choose good. That’s our service to God. For there to be choice, evil has to be pretty attractive. There is no choice if we’re not interested in one of the alternatives. In other words, if somebody puts in front of me a gorgeous, delicious meal, and next to it a plate of (forgive me) vomit, would it be a tremendous choice that I opted for the meal and not the vomit?

Therefore, in order for there to be the optimal opportunity to choose goodness, evil has to be extremely attractive. People think the Devil is an independent character who has a red ugly face, horns on his head, and a pitchfork in his hand. Kabbalah teaches that the forces of evil were created by God and the strongest ones are a counterfeit of good. They look just like goodness. That’s why they present such a great challenge. Evil and good are not always like black and white. High- grade, super classy evil looks just like good, but it’s counterfeit nevertheless. Counterfeit means that it looks like the real thing but isn’t.

I walk into a store. I hand the cashier a bill. The cashier says, “Thank you, sir. Oh, wait a second! … Sir, I’m sorry, this hundred-dollar bill is worthless; it’s counterfeit.” I then begin to argue, “What are you talking about? This is a hundred-dollar bill! Do you see the number 100 in the corner?”

The cashier shrugs. “No, I’m sorry, sir, this bill is a worthless piece of paper. President Washington’s right eyeball is slightly off.”

“No, no, this is one hundred dollars. What’s an eyeball got to do with it?”

“Sir, just because it looks, smells, and feels like a hundred-dollar bill doesn’t make it a hundred-dollar bill. Unless it’s printed at the U.S. Mint, it’s worthless.”

So, too, the choices for goodness in real life are often much more subtle than most people recognize. There is a subtle but real difference between “looking good” and “being good.”

Torah and Kabbalah teach that God created the world in order to facilitate the possibility for ultimate goodness, which means goodness that has been chosen. Our service to God is to choose goodness. Life is all about choices. There are always choices to be made. Every day we are all handed choices. Every day we all get different challenges. No one can expect life to be a piece of cake in a world of choices.

But don’t worry. Try your best, and if you make a mistake, you can do teshuvah. You can be forgiven. Remember, God knew the stakes were high, and God is with you in your pain and struggle.

In fact, the Talmud tells us that before God created the world, He created the power of teshuvah, because the likelihood of our making mistakes was so great that we couldn’t even last a moment without the possibility of teshuvah already available.

Teshuvah is amazing. The Talmud teaches that if we transgress but later on change because we fear punishment, then our offense is considered null and void. But if we transgress but later on mend our ways because of our love for God, then our offense is counted as a merit in the spiritual realm.

Imagine a person who spent their whole life choosing evil and darkness. But moments before they die, they do teshuvah for the love of God. They are able to take all their offenses and turn them into merits and light. How is this possible?

When we do teshuvah out of fear, it means we’re afraid of the pain that is the likely consequence of our choices. When fear motivates our personal transformation, it is because we want to protect ourselves. And that’s a noble move.

However, when we do teshuvah out of our love for God, the underlying motivation is that we acknowledge the pain and disappointment we have caused God. We realize that God was counting on us to beat evil and choose good, and we failed Him. And we are so sorry for the missed opportunity to reveal this great goodness born out of choice.

Teshuvah done out of love arises from the realization that we are here on earth to perform a divine service—to choose goodness for God’s sake. God wants to participate in complete goodness through our struggle against evil and our choice to do the good, but we have failed Him. We do teshuvah not because we fear punishment but because we love God and know that we have, so to speak, let God down. This realization itself brings us closer to God, even closer than we were before we made the mistakes. Therefore, all our offenses turn into merits. The darkness is converted into light.

If God is absolutely good, why did He create a world that has so much evil? Ultimate goodness, which is the goodness achieved through choice, requires the possibility for evil. Once you understand this, you will appreciate how central a role evil plays in this world. What’s so good about this world is the evil in it. This world offers the opportunity to beat evil and choose good.

In other words, Kabbalah is teaching that the main feature and advantage of this world is the evil in it. This world was not created for what is already good in it. This world was created to be a forum for a new and higher kind of goodness—the goodness born out of overcoming evil and choosing to do good.

Imagine you walk into a factory and you see them trucking in tons and tons of garbage. You then find out that they actually buy this garbage and that it is their most valued raw material. This all sounds crazy to you until you find out that this factory is actually a recycling plant. They take garbage and turn it into usable products. Welcome to World, Inc.!

Yes, this world is really a recycling plant. This is why it is filled with so much garbage. All the trash around us and within us is here for us to recycle into usable products—lessons and realizations, growth and accomplishments. Before I learned this lesson from Kabbalah, I always wondered why there was so much evil in the world. However, after this secret was revealed to me, I asked: Why isn’t there more evil in this world? The answer, of course, is that there is less evil because we are working so hard and succeeding in our mission on earth to choose good.

Transgenderism: A Pathogenic Meme

“Hell hath no fury like a vested interest masquerading as a moral principle.”

Menashe's Blog

by  Paul McHugh 

June 10th, 2015

The idea that one’s sex is a feeling, not a fact, has permeated our culture and is leaving casualties in its wake. Gender dysphoria should be treated with psychotherapy, not surgery.

For forty years as the University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School—twenty-six of which were also spent as Psychiatrist in Chief of Johns Hopkins Hospital—I’ve been studying people who claim to be transgender. Over that time, I’ve watched the phenomenon change and expand in remarkable ways.

A rare issue of a few men—both homosexual and heterosexual men, including some who sought sex-change surgery because they were erotically aroused by the thought or image of themselves as women—has spread to include women as well as men. Even young boys and girls have begun to present themselves as of the opposite sex. Over the last ten or fifteen years…

Revival of the Hebrew language

If you are a Christian and are unsure why the Language of Hebrew is important, you should consider researching it.
Just a thought to consider… ~ wil’Liam Scott Hall

For a religion who loves the Bible so much, it is very telling that the study of the Bible/Tanach in it’s original Hebrew is avoided and not promoted in any way. The reason xtians don’t study the Tanach/Bible in Hebrew is that many of the so-called “prophecies” of the NT would fall apart if examined in the original Hebrew. ~ Akiva Goldberg

Zephaniah 3:9 For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent.

Revival of the Hebrew language

The process of the Hebrew language revival began on October 13th 1881, as Eliezer Ben-Yehuda and his friends agreed to exclusively speak Hebrew in their conversations. As a result, the language, which had not been spoken as a mother tongue since the second century CE, once again became the national language of Israel.

Some three thousand years earlier, when the Jewish people first arrived in Israel with Joshua, Hebrew was established as the national language and lasted for more than a millennium, until the Bar Kohba war in 135 CE. From that point on, Hebrew was exclusively used for literature and prayer, until late in the 19th century with the first aliya and Ben-Yehuda.

Born in 1858, Ben-Yehuda grew up in Belarus, formerly part of the Russian Empire, where he started studying the Bible. At the age of three, he started learning in a cheder, a Yeshiva for young children, where he learned ancient Hebrew. By the time he was twelve, Ben-Yehuda was familiar with large portions of Torah, Mishna and Talmud. Hoping he would become a rabbi, his parents sent him to a Yeshiva where he continued studying Torah and ancient Hebrew.

In the following years, he learned French, German, and Russian and traveled to Dunaburg, Latvia for further education. With the rise of Jewish nationalism in 19th century Europe, Ben-Yehuda was captivated by the innovative ideas of Zionism. While reading the Hebrew language newspaper HaShahar, he became acquainted with Zionism and concluded that the reviving the Hebrew language in the Land of Israel would unite all Jews worldwide. And so, in 1881, Ben-Yehuda made aliya and came to live in Jerusalem. At that time, it was believed that one of the criteria needed to define a nation worthy of national rights was its use of a common language spoken by both the society and the individual. In fact, Ben-Yehuda regarded Hebrew and Zionism as one and the same, writing that, “The Hebrew language can live only if we revive the nation and return it to the fatherland.” According to researchers, it appears that in the fifty years preceding the start of the revival process, a version of spoken Hebrew already existed in the markets of Jerusalem. The Sephardic Jews who spoke Ladino or Arabic and the Ashkenazi Jews who spoke Yiddish needed a common language for commercial purposes, and the most obvious choice was Hebrew. It should be noted that it was not a native mother tongue as such, but more of a pidgin.

As part of his vision of reviving Hebrew, Ben-Yehuda raised his son, Ben-Zion Ben-Yehuda (the first name meaning “son of Zion”) speaking entirely in Hebrew. He refused to let his son be exposed to other languages during childhood. It is said he once reprimanded his wife for singing a Russian lullaby to the child. As a result, his son Ben-Zion became the first native speaker of Modern Hebrew.

Ben-Yehuda was a major figure in the establishment of the Committee of the Hebrew Language (Va’ad HaLaschon), later the Academy of the Hebrew Language, an organization that still exists today. He wrote the first Modern Hebrew dictionary and became known as the “reviver” of the Hebrew language.

However, while he worked tirelessly to raise awareness and fought its opponents, what finally brought about the revitalization of Hebrew were not Ben-Yehuda’s activities in Jerusalem, but developments in the communities of the First Aliya (1881-1903) and the Second Aliya (1904-1914). The first Hebrew schools were established in these communities; Hebrew increasingly became a spoken language of daily affairs, and finally became a systematic and national language. Yet Ben Yehuda’s fame and notoriety stems from his initiation and symbolic leadership of the Hebrew revival. In fact, Cecil Roth summed up Ben-Yehuda’s contribution to the Hebrew language: “Before Ben-Yehuda, Jews could speak Hebrew; after him, they did.” Ultimately, the process of Hebrew’s return to regular usage was unique; there are no other examples of a sacred language becoming a national language with millions of first language speakers.

In 1922, Ben-Yehuda died from tuberculosis at the age of 64.The house he built in the Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem was later transferred to the local municipality and is today a conference center and guesthouse run by the German organization Action Reconciliation Service for Peace, which organizes workshops, seminars and Hebrew language ulpan programs.


While Hebrew had remained the language of study and prayer, it had not been a spoken language for centuries. Few believed it could again become a tongue of everyday speech, but one man did, and dedicated his life to reviving Hebrew. His name was Eliezer Ben-Yehuda.

Heidi, Ted, the birth of the Illuminati?


Heidi Cruz the wife of Senator Ted Cruz is affiliated with an organization that’s trying to build an EU style government right here in North America and take away our sovereignty. So how is it that she’s so actively involved in her husband’s campaign when he vehemently opposes her views. Well I’m going to expose some truths about this organization and the Cruz’s relationship.

In 2004, Heidi became a member of the Independent Task Force on the Future of North America sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations. The Task Force advocates a greater economic and social integration between Canada, Mexico, and the United States as a North American region. Or what Lou Dobbs called the North American Union. The council on foreign relations, the CFR promotes globalization, free trade, the reduction of financial regulations on transnational corporations and economic consolidation into regional blocks such as NAFTA and the European Union. That’s right, these are the same guys that promoted NAFTA.

In 2005, the CFR published a document called Building a North American Community. Within the report the task force proposes the creation of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. The Report recommends the development of a North American border pass and action plan allowing citizens of the three countries to expedite passage through customs, immigration, and airport security within the region. They want to quote “Lay the groundwork for the freer flow of people within North America. They say the three governments should commit themselves to the long-term goal of dramatically diminishing the need for the current intensity of the government’s’ physical control of cross-border traffic, travel, and trade within North America. Yeah uh in English this means let’s let all the Mexicans freely cross the border into the United States.

It’s very interesting, right? Ted Cruz is on the complete opposite side of his wife’s view and her participation in The Council of Foreign Relations. In fact during his run for the senate he was asked about the CFR and he’s quoted as saying they are a pernicious nest of snakes that is working to undermine our sovereignty.

But Heidi Cruz, has relentlessly been campaigning for her husband. And we’re not just talking about event appearances. She’s quoted as saying she’s made over 600 phone calls to potential donors in the first quarter of the campaign alone. No other candidate’s partner has ever stumped for their husband or wife like Heidi Cruz has for Ted. So what is it? What does Heidi Cruz get out of Ted Cruz winning the election, when it goes against her very own political ideologies?

You have to start asking yourself what’s the agenda here. Ted Cruz wants to deport all the migrants but his wife wants an open door policy and free travel between countries. At some point you have to ask is Ted Cruz a secret advocate for the North American Union? How can two people who share the same bed, are diametrically opposed to each other’s stance on immigration, be so single mindedly focused on getting into the White House.

You know years ago Bill Clinton let it slip that he and Hillary made a pact that she would support his presidential run which would pave the road for her to run in the future. In fact they even discussed which one of them should run first. This Cruz relationship sounds all too familiar and I’m predicting right now that if Ted Cruz does get into office and lord have mercy on us all if that happens but if it does I believe he’ll switch to support her initiative and we’ll be looking at four years of our sovereignty being dissolved.”- Jonathan Edward Goodman (The Johno Show)

Hillary Clinton Brags about Getting Her Marching Orders from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

While Clinton herself is not an official member of the CFR, her affiliations with the organization are abundantly clear as she herself admits. On July 15, 2009, Clinton spoke to the Washington DC satellite facility of the CFR where she stated,

I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department.

We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.

Cheney admitting he was a director of the CFR.”I never mentioned that when I was campaigning for reelection back home in Wyoming.”


Hispanic Patriots founder, Dahlys Hamilton bashed both Ted and Heidi Cruz’s connections to the globalists, especially the North American Union:

Big news in the Hispanic community – Hispanic Patriots founder
[Dah-leeth] Dahlys Hamilton – a very well known and respected Hispanic leader has finally given up on Ted Cruz:
“I’M GETTING OFF “LYIN’ TED’S” CRUZ SHIP AND BOARDING THE TRUMP TRAIN! After spending several months researching, and asking the Lord to reveal the truth to me about this election, when the revelations started coming, I really did not want to believe what I was uncovering. Ultimately, I had no choice but to admit I have been deceived–and so have many of you.”
Hamilton organized an event in Georgia last year for Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael. Hamilton bashed both Ted and Heidi Cruz’s connections to the globalists, especially the North American Union:
“Keep in mind that “North America” does not refer to just the United States. North America includes the U.S., Mexico AND Canada. The North America Union (NAU) will strip us of our sovereignty!
“When Cruz talks about securing our borders, he is not referring to protecting the U.S. from our Mexican and Canadian borders, he is referring to the North American Union borders–around the perimeter of the newly formed union!
“Trump was right about LYIN’ TED!
“If you want to know the truth about how the globalist puppet masters are positioning Ted & Heidi Cruz for a diabolical plot to open our borders to Mexico and Canada, please watch these videos. If you think we have problems now with our economy, liberty, illegals, and terrorism, and other threats to our nation, imagine the ensuing chaos!”

Ted Cruz: First President of the North American Union?
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.


The limits of debate are established in this country before the debate even begins. Everybody else is marginalized, made to seem like Communists or some other disloyal person. Kook, there’s a word! Now it’s conspiracy. They’ve made that something that can’t even be entertained for a minute – that powerful people might get together and have a plan? Doesn’t happen! You’re a kook, you’re a conspiracy buff! – George Carlin

large-george-carlin-tm“Do I believe in conspiracies? Nah. Do I believe powerful people would get together and plan certain outcomes? Nah. Do I believe powerful interests would operate outside the law, maybe even kill people? Nah. Do I believe that secret government agencies might feel the need to assassinate a person and cover it up. Nah. I think everything in America is open, clean, and above board, and powerful people always play by the rules.” – George Carlin

King Hezekiah’s Seal Impression Found in the Ophel Excavations, Jerusalem


Dr. Eilat Mazar has unearthed a new discovery from her latest archaeological excavation in Jerusalem: the bulla of King Hezekiah of Judah. The clay seal stamped with Hezekiah’s name was found in the royal quarter of the Ophel and marks Mazar’s newest biblically related find.

The inscription on the bulla reads: “Belonging to Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz, King of Judah.”

Mazar’s archaeological team discovered the private seal of the king during a recent phase of excavations by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The Bible records that Hezekiah, son of Ahaz, ruled the kingdom of Judah from its capital, Jerusalem, 14 generations after King David during a major military conflict with Assyria. 2 Kings 18:5 notes his historical significance by recording: “[A]fter him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.”

Mazar’s other discoveries in Jerusalem include King David’s palace, Nehemiah’s wall, bullae belonging to princes who persecuted the Prophet Jeremiah, a Davidic-era secret tunnel, and a Solomonic-era wall. She plans to publish Volume 1 of her final report on her recent Ophel excavations later this month.

Archaeologists deciphered a seal impression bearing the name of the 8th century BCE biblical King Hezekiah recently found during excavations next to the Old City of Jerusalem, the Hebrew University announced. Read More:

NEVER…NOT ONCE…been ANY salvation from sin…there can be no salvation from Hell.


Christians attacking Christians, “Isn’t that special!” as The Church Lady would say.

I’m asking anyone that has came out of Christianity and began following the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to leave a comment below. Be the light.


Crucified Beyond The Narrow Gate by Stephen Rau

If the early Christians version or brand of love (tolerance) was to agree, condone and encourage those around them in every conceivable practice, desire or sin; I wonder why they were hated, ridiculed and killed? But this is exactly what modern church-goers do. To win the world, they condone mass sins. But the thing they condone, is the very thing they need deliverance from.

If Christ and the early church preached the same message the modern church preaches, they would’ve never been crucified and martyred!

I wonder what tolerance to sin Peter’s protégé Clement was permitting when He was tied to a boat anchor and disposed of in the Black Sea? Or Apostle John’s protégé Polycarp: What act of love and dismissal of sin caused Him to be burned at the stake? The same for Paul: Beheaded. Peter: Crucified upside-down with His wife. Justin Martyr: Decapitated. Ignatius: Killed in the Roman Coliseum.

Since the early church is so often cited by modernist-evangelicals, for teaching the same “love and tolerance” message that has given us our tinker bell churches and idol ridden prosperity preachers: Why on earth were they ALL martyred?!? The Romans should have loved them!

If your version of love is to promote grace so sin can abound & be openly, proudly and arrogantly flaunted about in grand flippancy: you are preaching a false gospel.

True Salvation isn’t just salvation from Hell (that’s only half of it). True Salvation saves you from both Hell AND the sins that were once sending you there.

If your version of Godly love is to preach Christ, so the darkness of sin may be exposed in the light of Christ; the recipient of such a Gospel will repent under such exposure and experience Christ unto Salvation. And it is then, they will truly see God’s love and tolerance to have saved such a wretch like them, while they were still in their sins. To see, comprehend and understand the true love of God; you must first have a revelation from the Spirit of God, just what it is you have been forgiven of. If you know nothing of sin…you know nothing of forgiveness. And if you’ve seen your own sin, you will preach a gospel of love that reveals the sin of others, that leads them unto salvation.

Once you see the length, depth, width and breadth of what you’ve been forgiven of…you will then bless God for the sin you’ve been saved from.

Preaching love isn’t “trying to please everyone”. You can never please everyone. And in trying, you trash the truth of God, make it a mockery and destroy it for a lie, all in the name of a false gospel that refuses to be set free of its sin. The Truth of God’s Word has been flushed and disposed of in most churches who bear His name. These modernists apostates destroy the true Gospel for a fake one they’ve concocted in their laboratory of sin. They call this gospel the “Love Gospel”.

It’s love alright: Love of Sin. And it didn’t exist in the first and second century Church of The Living Christ.

The so-called “Love-Gospel” is actually the “Hate-Gospel”. It is the bastardization of Christianity that abandons its adherents to the very elements of what was and is destroying them.

If your Christianity is based upon a little prayer once uttered (to save you from hell) but completely lacks the freedom to live apart from the things that were sending you to hell…your Christianity is a “Hate-Gospel” that lacks the outward evidence of an inward condition….of an authentic salvation. Where there has NEVER been ANY salvation from sin…what makes you think there can be ANY salvation fro hell? Where there has NEVER…NOT ONCE…been ANY salvation from sin…there can be no salvation from Hell.

Where there is smoke there is fire. The smoke (holiness in daily conduct) is the billowing evidence that points to an inwardly raging fire (authentic salvation). If you are embodied with the literal fire of Christ…smoke will naturally billow forth…giving irrefutable evidence of an inwardly raging condition.

If salvation to you, is just a “get out of hell free card” without any commitment unto the deliverance of the sins that were at one time sending you there…you’re NOT His disciple. Therefore, a great urgency should arise to examine yourself to see if you are even in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5).

Does your salvation consist of a mere escape from hell…or is it complimented by an escape from sin as well?

The answer and reality to that question will echo on into eternity…

Most church-goers nowadays are content with being told that God has made peace with their sin. That He no longer has ANY problem with it. That the reason He died on the cross was so we could be free to commit sin all we want. Even though it was for this very sin that he was mangled, disfigured, beaten, forsaken of God and nailed to a piece of wood to suffocate under the weight of the world and die..

Would you allow yourself to be mangled, disfigured, beaten, forsaken of God and nailed to a piece of wood to suffocate, JUST so you could commit sin?


Then what makes you think He approves of you saying these things about Him?

People such as this are a reproach to the Gospel and an embarrassment to real Christians.

It’s not good enough to them that they are lawless. They feel the need to make Christ lawless as well by making it appear He died so we could be free to sin. If He’s going to cast away the lawless ones (Matthew 7:23) how much more so those who have tried to make His sacrifice an excuse to be lawless?

They are a reproach to the unsaved because they make Christ’s sacrifice a cheap, un-sacred pile of trash. One day the fans of heaven will be turned on full boar…and all of this crap is gonna hit it with a running jump.

Sorry for the strong words—but somebody’s gotta say it.

Actually, the more I think of it; No, I’m not sorry for the strong words. I’m sorry for the so-called Christians in our day and age that have prompted the strong words.

I’m sorry this generation hasn’t a hope in hell (literally) of obtaining any real, genuine salvation from a real, genuine hell; when a false gospel such as this is taught in the majority of our churches.

I’m sorry for the amount of “church-goers” who enable and empower “ministers” such as this by filling their pews week in and week out; and by sending millions of dollars annually so they can be told what they want to hear (lies).

I’m sorry when you try and help people ensnared in these groups, they lash out like a dog who has inadvertently hung itself from it’s own leash.. what was meant to keep them within the bounds of safety…now has a stranglehold on them. And when you use the Word of God to point this out, they call you legalistic and become overly-defensive to the notion of you saving their life. They become enraged at the thought of themselves enduring sound doctrine and they become equally enraged at the fact you had the audacity (love) to point it out. So, like a seed that has fallen on a rock…they die.

For THAT I’m sorry and have come to be embarrassed to even share the name “Christian” in and among these reproachable lovers of sin. Because I don’t want a mere name or label to associate me with the Copeland, Osteen, Bell or Warren-esque crowd. They’re an embarrassment to a Holy Church and surely an embarrassment to a Holy God.

Stephen Rau said; “The Roman Church is certainly the Whore of Babylon…the Mother of Harlots as described in Revelation 17:1-5. Allow me to explain in great detail:

“We are NOT anti-Catholic….we’re Pro-Truth. If being Pro-Truth makes us appear to be anti-Catholic…so be it. But that is not our intent. Our intent is to allow Truth to lead us where it will…even to the uncomfortable realization that Roman Catholicism is the Mother of Harlots” – Stephen Rau

Who canonized these as official Church dogma?

To begin with, as the Roman Catholic Church was establishing the official doctrines of the Nicean Christian Religion they included the teaching of Hell as a place of eternal, fiery torment

Much of the imagery of the Nicean Christian conception of Hell is identical with the Pagan underworld known as Hades — even the word Hades is used 11 times in the New Testament to identify Hell, so there is no question about the origins of the doctrine.

Where did the teaching of “Hellfire and damnation” come from?

As the Nicene Church was establishing its official doctrines and replacing biblical Judaism with Catholicism (“Universalism”), it is a well known and easily established fact that they incorporated the teachings of many different religious systems. These early “church fathers” were attempting to establish a new and global political and religious authority in order to control every aspect of human life. Whatever their motives, the Vatican created dogma of eternal torture as a powerful stick to wield against its opponents. “extra Ecclesiam nulla salus means: “outside the Church there is no salvation”

To this end the Catholic Bishops incorporated the Roman Pagan teaching of Hades: A subterranean place of eternal fiery torment and damnation. Never mind that the dogma has no biblical basis, the Magisterium of the Church declared it so. The threat of eternal damnation made their subjects docile and the collection plates rang with tithes, offerings and indulgences as deceived people sought to purchase their salvation.

The imagery of the Nicene Hell is largely taken from the underworld abode of the god Hades and his part time lover Persephone.

#1. NOWHERE in the Bible does it claim that the New Testament is God’s word or infallible. Fallible imperfect human beings did!

Deuteronomy 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Proverbs Chapter 30:5-6 Every word of God is tried; He is a shield unto them that take refuge in Him.

Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Deutronomy 13.1 All this word which I command you, that shall ye observe to do; thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

2 If there arise in the midst of thee a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams–and he give thee a sign or a wonder, 3 and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto thee–saying: ‘Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them’; 4 thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God putteth you to proof, to know whether ye do love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

#2. Paul in his letter 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: Is NOT talking about a New Testament, it has not been written yet nor compiled by the Catholic Church. The scripture he is talking about is the Tanach.#3. It’s this simple, as James Wood said;

You have to make up your mind to believe Torah (which is not to be changed) or The New Testament that changes it…

Hell, The Facts

  • There is no biblical basis for this teaching.
  • No Believers from the Abrahamic traditions living in the first century C.E. conceived of such a post-life torture.
  • Many Pagans did believe in such horrors and they were viewed as savages because it.
  • Not a single person in the Gospel accounts ever challenge Jesus as to the origins of this non-Jewish teaching he allegedly taught.
  • The doctrine directly challenges the Torah claims that God is Loving and Just
  • Many “Bible believing Christians” believe many unbiblical heresies. The near universality of the belief does not make it biblical.

I have to wonder how many lives would be saved if it were not for this despicable church doctrine that people are never good enough. We are born sinners and can never be righteous in the eyes of a vengeful warrior god. Even a child knows there is something wrong with having an innocent person pay for some else’s crimes, but that is exactly what the Nicene Roman Church (Catholic and Protestant) teaches. The Word of God, the scriptures, say otherwise.

“The Bible is clear, and it is consistent: one person cannot die for the sins of another. In other words, the sins committed by one person cannot be wiped out by the punishment given to another. In Exodus 32:30-35, Moses asks Gd to punish him for the sin committed by the people in regards to the Golden Calf. Gd tells Moses that the person who committed the sin is the one who must receive the punishment. Then, in Deuteronomy 24:16, Gd simply states this as a basic principle, ‘Every man shall be put to death for his own sin.’ This concept is repeated in the Prophets, in Ezekiel 18: ‘The soul that sinneth, it shall die… the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.’ The prophet Jeremiah looks to the day when the mistaken belief that one man’s death atones for another man’s sins shall no longer be held by anyone: in Jeremiah 31:29-30, the prophet says: ‘In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.’

How Did They Decide?

1000 Verses - a project of Judaism Resources

How Did They Decide?

Christianity stands on the words of a few men. If the disciples of Jesus would have ignored him as did most of the Jews of his day, no one would have ever heard of him. It is only because these men believed he was the Messiah that the world knows of the existence of Jesus of Nazareth.

How did these people come to their conclusion? How did these followers of Jesus decide that he was the Messiah prophesied by the Jewish Bible? What was the motivation behind their decision? Was it a deep loyalty to the words of the prophets or was it some other factor that induced them to come to this conclusion?

It is not easy to determine if someone arrived at their conclusion on the basis of intellectual searching or if the conclusions were generated by some external factor and it is not…
