The alliance between Christian-Zionists (Whose Founding Fathers include Jerry Falwell of the Moral Majority and Pat Robertson of the Christian Coalition and the Christian Broadcasting Network) and Jewish Neo-Conservatives is a prelude to an upcoming holocaust.
Many Jewish Rabbis in Israel, the USA and Europe are beginning to openly discuss what a disaster it is for Jews to form alliances with Christian Zionists. They rightly fear for their people.
Those Jews that dare speak out against this alliance say:
“These Christian-Zionists also called Christian Evangelicals or Christian fundamentalists do not love us, Jews, they use us only for their own purpose. They look for the second coming of their ‘so-called’ Messiah who will come to slaughter us in Israel-Palestine and build a Christian era.”
“These people pretend to support the return of the Jews to Palestine in order to fulfill the ‘so-called’ prophecies of the second coming of their ‘so-called’ Messiah. They believe this will happen during their time and that they will witness the killing of the Jews in Palestine-Israel. They are forcing the prophecies to be fulfilled during their time, and we Jews are just a part of their dirty game.”
“Based on their theology we Jews are only characters in their history of Salvation, we are only the final act in a play where Jews disappear for good.”
For them the real Jews are the hard-line Jewish settlers who live in the West Bank. These settlers are the true disciples of God and their presence fulfills the promises of a Messiah that will kill all Jews at Armageddon.
Many Jewish scholars rightly fear that the theology of Falwell and Robertson is being reflected in the words and actions of the Bush Administration today.
Jewish scholars recollect that Jews lived in such situations during biblical history when other nations used Jews as their slaves or as their Messianic pawns and either deported or slaughtered them. They know that even in modern history there have been small and large holocausts perpetrated against them by the same people that professed to love them so dearly.
Jewish Scholars warn that they have never felt such fear as they do today.
The Christian-Zionists who control Washington, without limits and with many weapons of mass destruction will one day turn against them. Sooner or later they will seek to fulfill their Messianic prophecies and a new holocaust against the Jews will begin. A new Falwell or Roberson will come along and he will claim that because of his undying love for “God’s Chosen” that it is his duty as a Christian to support the continuation of the settlements which have brought the peace process to a stalemate today. He will not support Israel out of love for Jews, he will do so in hopes that the continuation of the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, and that the resulting death of Jews will fulfill their Prophetic vision. The will call on the punishment of Jews fro their refusal to believe in their Messiah.
Jewish scholars do not trust Christian-Zionists.
Some Jews disagree with these scholars and they say:
“Let’s use them before they use us. Let’s get from them their secrets to obtain weapons of mass distraction through spies working for Israel in the US. Let us get as much information as we can from the CIA, FBI, the White House, the Congress and Senate. The moment will come when we might have to strike first in a preventive war against the US and its power, with the same logic that they did here. We must be prepared to defend ourselves from the upcoming holocaust and denounce these Christian-Zionists as war criminals.”
Others add to this:
“This is our only way to defend ourselves against their play in which they force us to play different acts. We will string them along but we will have the final victory over them and not the other way around. We will kill them in the name of their “Messiah”, our Messiah is the Messiah of the Jews, not of the Christians.”
Both parties know that an upcoming holocaust is in its final preparation. The victims will be innocent people who had nothing to do with theology, faith or the Messiah of the Christian-Zionists or the Messiah of the Jews.
We need to act immediately, the forces that do not wish to peace are already using the Bible and the World as characters in a play that will make us all victims of their false theology.
Let’s get God out of this ungodly play. He is the God of all of us; children of Abraham and children of the world.
The Messiah came not coming to kill. If he comes again, he will only come to save. The Messiah speaks of love, not about killing. He gave his life to save and He refused to judge anybody.
Let us remove Jews, Christians and Muslims out of this ungodly play. They do not accept the theology of people who represent a theology of Armageddon, a theology that is not based on anything factual and is based on political, social and economical interests.
Let us get more secular involved; they need to dare to speak out clearly and loudly. Enough wars in the name of your religions. If your religions are the religions of hate, then keep your religion away from the rest of us. Stop harming us because we do not believe in your gods and religions of mass destruction.
Jewish, Christian and Muslim scholars should start to think together before it is too late, they should work together to the stop the upcoming holocaust that will destroy all of us.
