‘Instead of Israel-first candidates, the Tea Party must choose America-first candidates’
By Rev. Ted Pike
The National Tea Party movement describes itself as a fresh start for political and moral conservatism. Will there be real change? Not if more “Israel-first” candidates are promoted to high office.
A generation ago, the Reagan Revolution promised to restore America. That hope was sabotaged when Israel-first president George W. Bush surrounded himself by a host of neo-conservative, Zionist Jews and rashly launched foreign wars to make the Mideast safe for Israel. Claiming to be an evangelical Christian, Bush may have thought he was blessing America by aiding “God’s chosen people.” Instead, military involvement in the Mideast has proven one of the greatest curses America has known. The draining wars in Iraq and Afghanistan empowered Democrats to smash the last vestiges of conservative power, sweeping in Obama’s aggressively pro-homosexual, anti-Christian regime.
Will this new movement’s leaders make the same deadly mistake of elevating Israel-first authority? If they do, and succeed in 2012, loyalty to Israel will lead only to more disastrous military ventures in the Mideast—and inevitably discredit and destroy the Tea Party movement itself.
In contrast to the past four US presidents, ex-Gov. Sarah Palin — featured speaker at the Tea Party Nation Convention on February 4-6 — wants to allow illegal Jewish West Bank settlements to actually expand and has criticized Obama for urging a halt! Palin is maneuvering to take on Obama in 2012. She will be joined on stage by arch Israel supporter, and possible vice presidential candidate, Joseph Farah, who owns the popular conservative news source, WorldNetDaily. WND has a history of outspokenly defending freedom, particularly against hate crime laws and their persecution of Christians worldwide. Except in Israel. Over the past six years, because of Farah’s intense loyalty to Israel, he has enforced a virtual blackout of coverage of the rampant wave of sometimes violent hate crimes by ultra-Orthodox Jews against thousands of Jewish Christians. (See Lura Beckford’s www.kingsmenarad.com) This anti-Christ persecution is tolerated by the government of Israel and local authorities.
Which Direction for the Tea Party?
There are two alternatives before the Tea Party movement: Like the conservative revival under Reagan, it can seek media favor and political power by exalting Israel and Israel-first candidates. It can accept vast amounts of Jewish money, indebting itself to the Zionist lobby and Jewish internationalists. If it succeeds, it will then be led into disastrous Zionist schemes and misadventures, eventually precipitating a return to even more liberalism.
Or it can follow a very different path. It can become the Whole Truth Party by embracing truth to the fullest. Instead of fleeing the Jewish Anti-Defamation League’s accusation of “anti-Semitism,” it can educate itself concerning the conspiracy against Christian civilization that exists within Talmudic Judaism. This originated with the Pharisees and is now being carried out by ADL. ADL seeks to destroy Christianity and its values and set up its own one-world order under Anti-Christ.
ADL’s globalist intentions were recently confirmed by Orthodox rabbi Nachum Shifren in his unprecedented expose of ADL at News with Views. (See The A.D.L. vs. Faith and Freedom) Shifren said the League seeks world government and is “neutralizing the fabric of America, getting it ripe for a takeover in which the ADL can take part…What the Soviets could not do in Russia, the ADL will attempt to do in America.” Several years ago, Orthodox rabbi Daniel Lapin also warned, “Secular Judaism [ADL] is in relentless attack on evangelical Christians.” (See Rabbi Lapin: Christians Under ‘Relentless Attack’ by ‘Secular Judaism’)
The Tea Party movement largely reflects Christian and conservative values laid down by our Forefathers and based in the Holy Scripture. Scripture says all must trust and obey God until death in order to be sure of salvation. Honored by God, such Biblical standards have promoted America to her status as most powerful nation in the world. But the prevailing evangelical doctrine today, Calvinism, teaches that once a person has been “born again” they can never be lost, regardless of the sins they may commit. Applied on the geopolitical level for the past century, this Calvinist heresy has empowered the Zionist experiment. Old Testament law repeatedly stipulates that a disobedient nation of Jews cannot occupy God’s Holy Land, but Israel-first evangelicals assure Jews that their ancestral covenant with God entitles them to dwell in Palestine, without righteousness, justice or mercy. Predictably, such defiance of God’s will has precipitated irreconcilable Mid-East strife. (Watch Zionism and Christianity: Unholy Alliance here!)
With the rebirth of conservative/Christian values through the Tea Party, we have a wonderful opportunity to save America. If the Tea Party becomes the Whole Truth Party, God will “make a way where there is no way” in a hostile political wilderness.
Petition to Tea Party Leaders
I urge you to email this article, including the following petition, to as many Tea Party chapters and leaders as possible, especially in your area. Many hundreds are listed at TeaPartyPatriots.org. You can make a powerful contribution to freedom by moving the Tea Party in the right direction at this formative time!
Dear Tea Party Leaders:
As Tea Party supporters, we are concerned that the Tea Party movement makes a fresh start toward American renewal and not repeat the same mistakes that brought us to political, economic, and moral crisis. President George Washington warned America to “beware of foreign entanglements.” Gen. Douglas MacArthur said that if America ever became militarily involved in the Middle East, it could lead to her ruin.
Undue loyalty to Israel has made America’s leaders discard their sage advice and embroil us in no-win wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. These wars could spread to Iran, Pakistan, and further — all to make the Mideast safe for Israel.
It is time we return to the advice of our forefathers. The Tea Party platform should state that Israel will no longer receive “most favored” status by the US but must mature as an equally accountable nation. It must be fully responsible for actions that violate international law. No longer can Israel expect America to aid Israel when she persists in illegal settlements, war crimes, collective punishment of innocent civilians and restriction of free speech and religion for minorities in Israel, particularly Christians.
Those of us who are Tea Party members and Christians resolve to bless Jews and “seek the peace of Jerusalem” in the way the Bible really teaches: by sharing the soul-saving gospel of Jesus Christ with the Jewish people. No longer will we “bless” a Christian-persecuting regime by providing it with horrific weapons of war or unconditional approval.
Instead of Israel-first candidates, the Tea Party must choose America-first candidates. Only a return to American interests and values can begin the long journey back to the autonomous freedom our nation’s founders envisioned more than two centuries ago.
Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass the federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
