- Pastor John Hagee is a fanatically "Israel-first"
evangelical who leads his troops in unconditional moral and financial support
of the Jewish state. Today he is "supporting" Israel by endorsing
laws that were created to destroy people just like him-Christians.
- Hagee is calling for a United Nations indictment of Iranian
President Ahmadinejad for the "thought crime" of inciting genocide.
s-133000-to-urge-ahmadinejad-indictment>His petition has gathered 133,000
signatures. Along with Jewish activists Elie Wiesel and Sen. Joe Lieberman,
Hagee says the Iranian leader's attempts to "dehumanize Israelis and
demonize Jews" are illegal under the UN's 1948 Convention on the Prevention
and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
- Most Americans know nothing of this UN Convention or
its latent threat to empower international persecution of free thinkers!
If they knew the truth, one certainly hopes they wouldn't sign Hagee's
- The Convention is primarily the invention of Polish-Jewish
international law expert Rafael Lemkin. It was promoted by Marxist globalists
and the Jewish Anti-Defamation League as an early attempt at an internationally
enforced thought crimes law. It was ratified by the UN decades before ADL/B'nai
B'rith introduced national and state hate laws to most of the western world.
The Convention has been accepted by virtually all nations. Although the
1945 Connally Reservation restricts prosecution of Americans by it in a
world court, it was foolishly passed by Congress and signed into law as
a treaty by President Reagan in 1988.
- Its crucial "thought crimes" section defines
genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy,
in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as
such(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group."
(Article 2) Thus the Convention gives every racial or religious group the
right to claim mental harm as a result of others' "intentions"
to destroy them. Such groups can claim victimhood and initiate international
- The Convention is a highly dangerous hate crimes law.
- Hidden Agenda behind the Convention
- Most sane people can accept a law forbidding the actual
massacre of members of a race or religion. Yet the Convention isn't limited
to physical acts of violence. That legal simplicity wouldn't take society
where Jewish supremacists want us to go. Their agenda means criminalizing
thoughts and emotions themselves-making "bias" itself illegal.
- Lemkin actually coined the term "genocide"
to describe a bias-motivated crime of epic proportions. Today we are told
by ADL that genocide is caused by prejudice against racial/religious groups.
Such bias is the fundamental cause of history's worst crimes. And where
does most bias come from? ADL answers: "Christian intolerance."
Thus Christianity-and its biased, hateful and hurtful judgments-must be
- With this in mind, the Convention criminalizes actions
which are not genocidal, such as "causing mental harm!" Lemkin's
broad and ambiguous definition of genocide makes it much easier to level
the charge. "Human rights tribunals" must form to investigate
and pontificate upon the intent of the accused. The result (as in ADL hate
law countries today) is legal anarchy. No one is sure what "hate speech"
is or whether a person's motives can be sufficiently defended, especially
if they have caused "emotional harm" by criticizing protected
- When Does a Crime Occur?
- Under traditional Western jurisprudence, a crime occurs
when a physical action violates established law. God alone can judge our
intentions. Human law must limit prosecution to what is physically demonstrable.
But under thought crime laws, a crime happens when a governing entity says
a forbidden intention or emotion has occurred! Thought crime laws thus
give "thought police" the power to define and prosecute what
they deem to be hate speech. They minimize or omit centuries-old legal
standards as well as the real human rights and protections that go with
- The Convention is identical in legal theory to the entrapping
hate laws ADL/B'nai B'rith laid on Canada in 1971. The Canadian Human Rights
Act says that if anyone has the bias motivation (intention) of criticizing
members of federally protected groups (homosexuals, Jews, Muslims, etc.)
and does so, causing them mental anguish, then the victim can bring a hate
crimes charge against his verbal assailant. He will almost certainly be
upheld and the "hater" receives a minimum $5,000 fine-and imprisonment
if such "hate speech" continues.
- Hagee, flanked by far left Jewish activists, now claims
that Ahmadinejad intends to not only cause the state of Israel and Jewish
people "serious mental harm," but also to annihilate them. He
says the world should have executed Hitler when his early words revealed
his intention; then six million Jews would not have died. The same should
be true of Ahmadinejad.
- Should Iran's leader be indicted under international
law for his "intentions" and the emotional distress he brings
Jews? 133,000 signatories, mostly evangelicals, say "Yes!" Such
Christians should know they are putting their freedom and that of their
children in extreme danger by such a stand. Most Christians and conservatives
oppose any restrictions on free speech in their own countries; yet on the
international scene, they eagerly join Zionist mouthpieces like Jay Sekulow,
Hal Lindsey, and Hagee in censoring free speech. They demand Ahmadinejad
be denied an international forum, especially at the UN. In joining the
ADL/Zionist forces of censorship and boycott, evangelicals encourage international
speech crime enforcement. The monster these evangelicals are creating will
someday turn on them. When that happens, these very evangelicals will themselves
- What Hagee and his Zionist handlers recommend should
be laughable in a free western world. But even more absurd and incredible
Zionist initiatives are now a grim reality. Scholars who question the six
million figure of Holocaust dead are outlawed, deported and imprisoned-with
cooperation of most nations, including the US.
- When ADL/B'nai B'rith helped Lemkin craft their Convention
in 1948, his freedom-destroying scheme was far ahead of its time. Yet today,
their dream of a federal hate crimes law in the US has come true. The next
step toward world hate law enforcement is undoubtedly to resurrect the
Genocide Convention. International law professor <http://untreaty.un.org/cod/avl/ha/cppcg/cppcg.html>William
A. Schabas approvingly says "it sits four-square within the priorities
of both the United Nations and the modern human rights movement, aimed
at the eradication of racism and xenophobia."
- Since its ratification in 1948, the Convention has been
criticized by conservatives as so ambiguous and potentially threatening
that international political opportunists might someday use it to indict
their adversaries. That fear is realized today. Hagee/Israel claim that
they know Ahmadinejad intends to destroy Jews in Israel and that his threatening
words cause fear and "mental harm" to Israelis; thus he is guilty
of at least inciting genocide.
- Conservatives at this time should limit development of
international speech crimes enforcement, not encourage it. Although the
US and many nations were reluctant to support international enforcement
of the Convention, it was still enshrined in international law. Like other
"sleeper" hate laws, awaiting their ominous moment in history,
it could soon empower prosecution of politically incorrect individuals
and nations. An essential step toward world government is increased participation
of many groups-including Christians and Jews-to demand international hate
- Perhaps John Hagee is the evangelical Judas-goat chosen
to lead that ominous march into the dark.
