Israel’s American Apologist for Palestinian Extermination
Charles E. Carlson Feb 9, 2009
Followers of Christ should consider Alan Dershowitz an incurable and unrepentant Pharisee of our day. And he should dread the day when America’s 200,000 churches come to realize what World Zionism has done to the children of Gaza with the aid of Evangelical Christian Zionism. ---It is not hard to see the rift in the American Jewish community over Palestine. As Editor Marge O'Brien put it, "the barbarity has reached the point where Jews feel driven to either distance themselves from what Israel is doing or to try to justify what they're doing - neither of which work."
Evangelical Zionist’s Dilemma: Love Your Enemy or Starve Him
Charles E. Carlson Jan 31, 2009
Evangelical Zionism is our own descriptive term. It is not a denomination, but an acquired disease in the body of Christianity. The universal symptom is the belief that the political state of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophesy. Jesus said, love you brother, even your enemy; Evangelical Zionism, in its extreme morphs, holds that Old Testament scripture allows the extermination of the Palestinians.
Would Jesus Concur or Weep?
Tom Compton Feb 1, 2009
"Looking at the photo of an innocent, dead, Palestinian child, I want to weep...One group in the United States that religiously and fervently supports Israel, no matter how it conducts itself against the Palestinians that reside in Israel, are Christian Zionists (our new term is "Evangelical Zionists"). They believe that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Old Testament, Biblical prophecy." This is a piece by Tom Compton of We Hold These Truths
that was published in the Palestine Chronicle
ISRAEL: The New American Idol
Ericka Moore Jan 26, 2009
Israel has become the new American Idol. The mantra of “We will always support Israel” is disturbing enough coming from our Presidents, and most of the Congress and Media, but when many of the Christian Evangelical Churches across America are the loudest voices in the chorus, it’s time to investigate.
U.S. Air Force to Copy the "Leveling" Plan being used by the IDF for Economic Recovery in the U.S.
Tom Compton Jan 15, 2009
Pharisee Pharse Pflash
: We hear all kinds of plans to boost the economy. What is needed is something that will put money in people's pockets quickly. It needs to be drastic. In this piece, you will learn how Israel has shown the US the way to a speedy recovery. Of course, when we do it in the US, we'll try to keep the losses to a minimum, unlike what's happening in Gaza. If a few people in the US die, I'm sure Israel will support our efforts just like our Congress did to support Israel's atrocities (go to our Unhearalded News item: U.S. House Passes Resolution HR34 to Support Israel's Atrocities

Christian Zionism Is On The National Council of Churches Radar Screen
Tom Compton Jan 5, 2009
The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA
issued a flier entitled, "Why We Should be Concerned About Christian
Zionism". The flier starts: "Christians are troubled when injustice
is committed. We are especially troubled when it is perpetrated
through the appropriation of Christian theology for ideological
purposes. One such misappropriation is commonly referred to as
Christian Zionism." View the flier at: http://www.ncccusa.org/pdfs/christianzionismbrochure.pdf
Phoenix Rally to Oppose the Killing of Over 280 Palestinians in Gaza by Israel
Tom Compton Dec 30, 2008
Our media leads us to believe that Israel and not Palestine
is the victim in the apartheid system that was created by Israel 60 years
ago. The Gaza Strip is an example of a
large jail maintained by the state of Israel. Over 75 Muslims and
Christians joined forces in Phoenix, AZ to protest the atrocities being committed by the state
against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
A speech by Chuck Carlson of We Hold These Truths is included in this
video along with clips of a bombing by Israel
against Gaza in 2003 from a video shot by Chuck

The Lie That Justifies Mass Murder: "Hamas Hit Us First"
Charles E. Carlson Jan 1, 2008
The White House’s press release is exactly the same as the Zionist Israel position, blaming the victims.
...The USA, also, uses Israel to further the war agenda. Israeli politicians willingly play their part in the US war scheme, which necessitates many secret meetings between. Israeli citizens will eventually be blamed for wars in the Middle East and will one day be a victim...

A Christmas Message From We Hold These Truths
Volunteer Team Dec 13, 2008
It isn’t funny! We must face the fact that everything we think we have and own is at mortal risk from the already exploding censor of the diluting of our money, caused not by auto-workers or farmers, but by the Federal Reserve System and a few knowledgeable opportunist on Wall Street and in Washington.
---Is Inflation (I call it “dilution“) exploding like it did this year in Rhodesia and a hundred other printing press dictatorships of the past? To a lesser degree, yes, and here is just one example.

Some of the ideas I’ve heard about stimulating the economy are just down right bizarre and Un-American.

Tempe, AZ Rally To Stop Israel's Blockade of Gaza Strip
Tom Compton Nov 23, 2008
We Hold These Truths
members joined CARMA
(Coalition of Arab and Muslim Americans) to protest the brutal blockade of the Gaza Strip by Israel. Intermittent power supplies and dwindling supplies for the past 2 weeks have resulted in the death of at least one infant and forced the evacuation of 200 new born babies from local hospitals.
Mohammed of CARMA
who organised the rally pointed out in our interview that Arab states like Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia are also guilty of failing to ease the burdens of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Egypt borders the Gaza Strip at the Rafah crossing and has refused to open it to allow Palestininas to cross into Egypt.

Mr. Obama:Did You Back Down On Big 3 Auto Bankruptcy?
Charles E. Carlson Nov 22, 2008
President-Elect Obama seems to be wavering on a very
important position. On November 21 his "Transition Team" wanted the Big
3 autos to be reorganized under bankruptcy laws before they get any
consumer's dollars. I agree. (
But Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid on the same day publicly stated that "bankruptcy is not an option" for the Big 3. Seems they want a "plan" to make them feel good, then they will approve bailout. Mr. President Elect Obama is now strangely backing down. He should stand fast.
Salvage The Pieces Of The Big Three, Don't Try To Patch The Broken Egg
Charles Carlson Nov 21, 2008
"...all the King's horses and all the King's men, couldn't put Humpty-Dumpty together again."---
Every bailout is an abuse of the laws of nature, theft of the consumer’s stored wealth, and must be repaid with our sweat and tears. Bankruptcy is the right course for the automakers if they cannot arrange their own financing. General Motors, Ford and Chrysler are brick and mortar with questionable and expensive managements. Their great plants and inventory and technology will not go away if they admit failure. The courts will decide who gets paid and who does not, the time honored way to settle the matter, and someone will take over these great enterprises and produce if there are buyers left. -Carlson

The Crucifixion of Jesus' Words (updated)
Charles E. Carlson Oct 22, 2008
Judeo-Christians constitute about 33% of all professed Christians in the USA, and about 26% of all voters. It is the only sect that requires a future war in the Middle East to bring about its idea of a completed Jesus Christ. Yet its celebrity leaders claim to be "literal interpreters” of biblical text.
Dear Son: Have you considered a career with The Outfit
Charles E. Carlson Oct 10, 2008
I call it "the Outfit," and to most a job there would be the ultimate in success and career achievement…fixed for life. But it has one drawback, for some there is a moral problem. The Outfit does big criminal acts and gets away with it, such as destroying the World Trade Center with 2600 people inside.
Bailout: Open Letter to Senator Barack Obama
Charles E. Carlson Sep 30, 2008
You, Senator Obama, Mr. Bernanke, the media, and the Administration have all been guilty of self-deception when you have said the “taxpayers” will have to pay for this bailout. You are very wrong, it is not the taxpayers but the consumers who must pay, and this is a big and material difference.
The Anti Defamation League Shelters Christian Zionism
Charles E Carlson Sep 21, 2008
The power of the ADL is given wings through the Christian Right; without them no one would need to fear the ADL. A permanent solution to the problems surrounding Zionism will be realized when “Judeo-Christians” return to following Christ.
The Cause of the Conflict, Fixing the Blame
Charles E. Carlson (original 7/13/2002) Aug 28, 2008
In Gaza City, the Baptist church is located between the Library of Culture and Light and the Islamic Center on Omar Mukhter Boulevard. There I met and interviewed three Christian Arab members who consider themselves Baptists. Some of them have already been bombed by the Israelis. ---One, who asked that I not use his name, (Mr. J we will call him) had to find a new school for his two boys because the Israelis had bombed their school into rubble a few days before I arrived. I saw the rubble, Israelis used American‑made F‑16s and two 500‑pound American Smart Bombs. ----The Southern Baptist Convention has tacidly approve of every air raid because they believe the Israelis are of Jacob's seed and the Arabs are of Ishmael's.---Does Dr. Land, we wonder, have a special "dispensation' to protect Mr. J’s Christ following, Baptist children when the rest of the Arabs have to hit the "highway?" Does he really believe Israelis from Russia should be allowed to occupy Mr. J's land that his family has owned for hundreds of years, based on Land’s interpretation of the bible?
Terrorism or Intelligent Bombs, The Suicide Bomb Hoax (orig: 4/19/02)
Charles Carlson Aug 28, 2008
It is clear that the odds are very fearful for the suicide bomber. But there are a few things Benjamin Netanyahu did not tell you about those 57 brave young Palestinians who chose that route. He lied when he said they bomb innocent civilians. That is what Israeli’s do. But all human bombs are certain to be intended for Israeli Military targets. Every bus, restaurant, bar, or theater is a military target. Each wedding, Passover celebrations, Bar mitzvah is probably a military target with active military present.
The Crucifixion of the Palestinian People, Part 1: Who Kills the Human Bombers
Charles Carlson (Orig 4/10/04) Aug 28, 2008
This writer has consistently argued that it is far more accurate to lay the responsibility for deaths on both sides on the doorstep of “Christian-Zionist” leaders of American churches and “celebrity media Christians” who, we find, are more bloody handed than a handful of young adults with crude homemade bombs. Were it not for these failed religious men of peace there would be no suicide bombers, there would have been no Day 911, Iraq would not have been destroyed and 600 dead American military would still be alive, as would countless Iraqis who been killed.

Israel Has US Proxy to Bomb Iran; Scheme Failing; Look Out Sudan!
Charles E. Carlson Jul 18, 2008
Israel is the USA pit bull, ready to attack. Washington is faltering under pressure from you, the public. Keep it up! War is less likely today than a week ago or a year ago! This means someone is having an impact, maybe it's us?
Tony Ortega; New Times Jul 3, 2008
From a Feb 13, 2003, award winning feature article about We Hold These Truths and its co-founder Charles Carlson. Author Tony Ortega wrote:
"After leaving his job seven years ago, Carlson and six like-minded friends founded a company they call We Hold These Truths. Largely an Internet venture (www.whtt.org), to foster peace. Only recently did he hit on the plan to hold demonstrations at places of worship in a program he calls Project Strait Gate, named after a biblical passage.”
“The demonstrations – for the most part polite affairs, which Carlson prefers to call "vigils" – involve no bullhorns, chanted slogans or violent clashes with police. Carlson, a white-haired grandfather of average height who sports a goatee and dresses smartly, asks his companions not to raise their voices or accost church members, and he purposely keeps the events small. If more than 10 of his members show up to a vigil, Carlson splits up the group and sends some to another church to picket."
Editor CE: Post Script 2008, and events : We invite you to read the full story of Peace Monger, the Arizona Press Club the "Best Religious" story of that year. ---Project Strait Gate has gone on to conduct some 65 challenging interventions at churches, meetings, and colleges. Among these are the late Jerry Falwell and Liberty College, Promise keepers, John Hagee five times, Joyce Meyer, John MacArthur several times, Benny Hinn, Jack Hayford, and the 2005 Southern Baptist Convention.
Come join us.
Project Strait Gate will next challenge mega-church pastor Rod Parsley's World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, August 10. 2008. Pastor Parsley is among the most outrageous warmongering pastors. He has recently been exposed to media attention for his re-statements calling for the bombing of Iran.
Pastor Parsley displays the bizarre trait so common to Christian Zionists, believing his words to be true, regardless of what words they are. He embarrassed John McCain by proclaiming that America's forefathers were committed to wiping out Islam, a vile racism that is without the least support in Jesus’ words and that defiles our heroes of the past.
Parsley continuously and unapologetically commits unexposed and unpunished fraud upon his congregation by extracting money from them to "liberate" non-inexistent slaves in Sudan, where there are no slaves but there is lots of oil. Parsley has employed commercial phone solicitors at times to huckster this fund raiser. His website states an impossible lie: "Just $52 will provide liberation for one slave."
We Hold These Truths is not about money, it is about life. We are less concerned about Parsley's fleecing of his "flock" than we are about his considerable political support for another war for oil in Sudan which our government has been angling for through three administrations.
Followers of Jesus and Jews for Peace will join in the Columbus, Ohio Vigil, and we hope Muslims will also be there to help tell the truth at last to Parsley's misled congregation. For details contact email@example.com
Charles E. Carlson will be one of several Christ followers to speak at (JAM4Peace.org) an international Muslim conference on August 16 in Baltimore, Maryland. Kaukab Siddique is a long time and highly respected ally in the cause of peace and the support of the Palestinian people.
Conference sponsors describe the event as, "The Way to Authentic Peace: International Conference to bring Top Islamic Leaders to America."
Tickets are bargain priced at only $40.00 in advance. Consider bringing your family for their education. You will be made welcome at this multicultural event.

Israel’s much practiced war on Iran; the impact on oil, food, jobs, and our humanity
Charles E Carlson Jun 23, 2008
We consumers should be able to see through the fog of words when crude oil is at $136.00 per barrel and the state of Israel is, with obvious US support, practicing for a military attack on Iran, the next biggest oil producer on Israel’s list of enemies. This is to be the next phase of the world war on Islam that began with oil rich Iraq in 1991.
The Farm Bill: An Outrage to Taxpayers, an Obscenity on Humanity
Charles E. Carlson Jun 18, 2008
It is still possible to stop this law, but it will take a miracle. Your Senators and House Members need to know you have a long memory when it comes to the cost of your food. That you will never forgive or forget if he or she votes for this legislation with food prices already running away for all to see. That’s why we call it The Money and Food Incineration Act of 2008.
