I feel the need to write this, because I fear that I might be lumped in the same group as this man; and quite frankly, I simply do not belong there at all.
To get a clearer picture of what I am referring to; I need you to go to the following places and read up. These links will open in a new window, so go ahead and read — I’ll be here.
Okay, now that we got that all out the way; and you now know what I am referring to; allow me to clarify my position.
My issues with Zionism and Israel; and all related matter is confined to the following:
- Religious: I simply happen to believe that Zionism is a form of Jewish supremacy. As it says on this page here on my blog; I detest any and all forms of supremacy. Furthermore, as a Christian, I happen to believe that Christian Zionism is an unholy alliance between Christians and Jews. (See 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV) I also happen to know that a very well know Jewish rabbi has made inflammatory remarks about what the Jews call, “The Goyim.”
- Political: I have readily identified myself here as a Paleoconservative. (See Patrick J. Buchanan) Because of this, I do have issues with Wilsonian foreign policy. However, I also realize that Palestine is simply not to be trusted.
Now there are some who would say that my positions Religiously and Politically are hateful; which is, quite frankly, a load of bunk. Having said that; I simply will comment this here. I understand that Mr. Blumenthal’s book equates Jews in Israel to Nazi’s. Sorry, but that is just a bit over the top; even for this critic of Israel. I fully support the idea of an Israeli state, as much as I support the idea of a Palestinian state. I believe a two state solution is entirely possible, provided both sides are honest brokers. Which is the entire problem; BOTH SIDES have dirty hands in that entire conflict.
I also realize that some paleoconservatives and yes, many on the uber-liberal left; have an ingrained hatred of the Jews, for whatever reasons. I simply say this about that little situation; they simply do not speak for this writer. I am not a hater of the Jew at all; I simply would like them all to come to a saving knowledge of Christ. I realize that this will not happen to all of them. (See 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 KJV)
I might have many motivations; but a hatred of Israel and of the Jews is not one of them. I distance myself from those people. Because I know what is at their core and that is hate. Something I want nothing to do with. Some might have a problem with this statement; but, it is the truth.
