- Are you an unintentional anti-Semite? The US State Department's
"Office of Global Anti-Semitism" warns not just of conscious,
intentional anti-Semitism but of another lurking form of potential bigotry:
unintentional anti-Semitism. (See, <http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/102406.htm>Contemporary
Global Anti-Semitism: A Report Provided to the United States Congress,
- According to our government, this
consists of criticisms of Israel which, though true, might be manipulated
by others to Israel's detriment. To avoid assisting Israel's enemies, the
state department recommends that every comment about Israel (including
its leaders and military) first be scrutinized for whether it could put
Israel in a bad light. If so, it shouldn't be said. Only then can
we consider ourselves both consciously and unconsciously free from anti-Semitism.
- The state department needn't lecture
evangelical Christians against possibly assisting Israel's enemies. At
least a century ago, evangelical leaders anticipated the state department's
warning. Today, evangelicals reflexively honor the code that, no matter
how true an unflattering fact or opinion about Jews may be, it will not
be repeated. As a result of a century of self-censorship, tens of millions
of evangelicals live in a virtual iron curtain of exclusion of truth about
Jews, Judaism and Israel. Taught to see, hear, and speak no evil of Israel,
they subsist on a religious and political diet of Zionist-approved pablum.
The magnitude of truth that has never been allowed to reach them is encyclopedic.
- Are Evangelicals Anti-Semitic?
- Evangelicals think that, by only
speaking well of Jews, they are beyond the reproach of ever being labeled
anti-Semitic. Wrong. The state department says that if Christians believe
the New Testament account that Jewish leaders had Christ crucified they
are the very worst kind of anti-Semites: "classical" anti-Semites.
That's what Hitler was (See, <http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/102406.htm>Contemporary

- To please both Jews and the government,
evangelicals must now fulfill two criteria: Never say true but unflattering
things about Israel and abandon belief in the New Testament.
- Will evangelicals accommodate
the state department's new requirement of philo-Semitic correctness? Countless
followers of John Hagee already do. They agree with his book "In Defense
of Israel" that the New Testament testimony that Jews killed Christ
is an anti-Semitic lie that birthed the Holocaust.
- Yet an increasing number of Americans
are no longer content to be insulated from truth. Many visiting truthtellers.org
are rediscovering an enormous reality: We don't have to fear the whole
truth concerning Jews or anything else. Truth can be trusted entirely.
Truth doesn't beget error and evil; rather, it bears the good fruit of
knowledge, wisdom, moderation, and guidance in a darkened, confused world.
- Because statements of truth affirm
reality, they are akin to God Himself, the ultimate Reality. Jesus said,
"Thy Word is truth." (John 17:17)
- People who don't love reality
hold back part of the truth. They consider too much truth to be potentially
dangerous. Evangelical leaders believe they protect Jews from possible
persecution by censoring truth about Jewish supremacism and creation of
Christian-persecuting hate laws. In reality, protection of Jewish anti-Christian
activists empowers them to flourish and expand their corruption of society.
This in turn only increases criticism and resentment of all Jews-most of
whom are innocent of such evil. Many bitterly resent the Anti-Defamation
League, architect of hate laws, for the bad reputation it gives the Jewish
- The "Israel-first" church
should not fear truth about the Jews; rather, it should fear the mounting
juggernaut of Jewish anti-Christianity. This is a force that Rabbi Daniel
Lapin says is "now in relentless attack on evangelical Christians."
(See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/rabbilapin.html>Rabbi Lapin:
Christians Under 'Relentless Attack' by 'Secular Judaism')
- In order to hold back this threat,
the truth must be allowed to flourish in the full light of day. For evangelical
leaders and media to continue to parse the truth to the people only distorts
reality. Evil flourishes amidst such distortion.
- Half-truths are Actually Lies
- But evangelical leaders may reply:
"Surely telling half the truth about a sensitive subject is better
than telling no truth." Not so. When a respected leader tells half
the truth, he inoculates his followers against the whole truth. They are
satisfied they have found the truth and no longer search for it.
- Also, they become misdirected
in their opposition to evil. For example, evangelical leaders say, "The
liberal media is behind the corruption of America." This half-truth
directs their followers to oppose liberalism, an ideology so pervasive
and amorphous that it's almost impossible to effectively combat. However,
if a leader tells the whole truth, that big media corrupting America is
primarily Jewish, then defenders of freedom are immediately directed against
a racial-religious group of conspirators. These shadowy ogres don't want
us to reflect unfavorably on the fact that they, as Jews, are corrupting
America. Such scrutiny puts Judaism in a bad light. It could prompt both
Christians and Jews to pressure them to desist. That would mean an end
to their efforts to corrupt Christian civilization in order that a Judaic
one-world order, presided over by their false messiah, Anti-Christ, might
- Here we see the radically different
consequences of telling a half-truth versus a whole truth. Half-truths
lead to misdirection and dissipation of Christian activism. The whole
truth leads to effective resistance and restoration of society. Consequences
this different and profound could mean the difference between saving America
and losing her. Not telling the whole truth is thus worse than a misrepresentation;
it is a lie. Lies distort reality, creating false premises which lead to
misguided actions and disastrous results-confusion.
- Such confusion is where John Hagee
and tens of millions of evangelicals are. It's where our Zionist-directed
Mideast foreign policy is. It's where countless Americans, sitting before
their TV sets, are: depending on Jewish media to orient and instruct them
about the very greatest moral and national issues America has ever faced.
- Any religion, civilization or
government that depends on filtered information will lose its way. As long
as America allows Jewish media to guide us, we will only find ourselves
repeatedly foundering in national dilemmas and foreign entanglements. Despite
our most fervent efforts to find relief and safety, we will remain perpetually,
- Hope in the Grassroots?
- Will evangelical leaders continue
to perpetuate lies about Judaism, even as Jewish activism undermines their
ministries? Because of their enormous vested commitment to Zionism, the
answer is almost certainly yes. After all, they have to please their pro-Zionist
supporters to survive. Such leaders do not really lead the people; the
power of the pursestring of their constituents leads them.
- On the other hand, an encouraging
trend is quietly developing: apart from ADL, <http://www.truthtellers.org/>www.truthtellers.org
dominates "hate laws" at Google. With WorldNetDaily almost
constantly exposing hate law abuses to its 7 million Christian/conservative
readers, many thousands of evangelical Christians, googling hate laws,
rebound to truthtellers.org each month. There, they find not only the world's
most complete information on hate laws but a Biblically balanced perspective
on Israel that is evangelical-friendly. Truthtellers.org teaches that
God still has a wonderful destiny for a remnant of repentant Jews at Christ's
return. We also teach that it is not anti-Semitic to rebuke evil Jewish
leaders. Christ and the prophets did it all the time.
- At Truthtellers, we receive frequent
appreciation and encouragement from evangelicals with virtually no criticism.
In fact, we have encountered no intelligent, systematic, and even-handed
criticism since the founding of the National Prayer Network in 1981.
- Many of these evangelicals, finding
"Ted Pike" on Google, undoubtedly link to my video The Other
Israel at video.google.com where it has now been viewed more than 110,000
- Perhaps, with such truth flooding
into evangelicalism from the internet, it is not evangelical leaders who
will save America from the top but independent-thinking Christians from
the bottom. There is evidence of an ever-increasing number of evangelicals
in the grassroots who want to do just that.
- What can we do right now?
- Pray for America and spread the
whole truth! Where the people lead, the "leaders" will follow.
