Our America is a War-based Economy and Society


Is an unincorporated organization of those who do not think we should accept war as a way of life for our children.

It was not always so, and most of us would choose life, not war, if we had the chance.  If you are one of the millions who recognize this tragic, self-evident truth, you might wish to read on.

Those who benefit from continuous wars have always been with us.  Some obvious examples are munitions makers, and international bankers who never mention war but prosper in the background.  It is, and should be, our first citizen duty to recognize those who profit from war, those we call the Warmakers.  Yes, we do need national “defense” in case we are ever attacked.   But in our voter controlled society we must keep the Warmakers in check or they will “take your sons…to make his instruments of war”, as one Old Testament Bible prophesy in the book of Samuel warns. We must teach our children about Warmakers, for it is they who will carry his weapons and fly his drones.

 The most obvious opponent of Warmaking should be our churches, mosques and synagogues, but they are not!

We, the grassroots, mostly Christian Americans, meet in and fund these churches. Tax Exempt religious organizations are the major support for our serial wars and military adventures in the false name of “peacekeeping and self-defense.”  Most of our churches claim to follow Jesus, the Peacemaker, but fail to stand for peace.  Some 15 years ago We Hold These Truths helped name these errant, war apologizing Church leaders, “Christian Zionists.”

Our story begins over two decades ago.  Our first MILESTONE article is dated December 26, 1991, addressed to a church, and entitled, “Iraq: America Prepped For ‘War’,” by Charles Carlson.

It ends, “May God forgive us if, by our inaction, we allow genocide against Muslim women and children and the sacrifice of even one of our own children. The average Christian could not… provide a single reason why we should sacrifice the life of one American boy… ” 

Is that not exactly what happened in Iraq?  Do you not hear the same war drums beating out a chant to “engage” Syria and Iran? If so, we hope you can use this site to convince your friends and children to

On Zionism - A Video Collection
March 25th, 2014

Led by Charles E. Carlson, “We Hold These Truths” (WHTT.org) has been approaching this problem of Christian Zionism (CZ) from “What Would Jesus Do” point of view. Carlson believes that CZ originates in C.I. Scofield’s study Bible, which was a plot by the Illuminati Zionists from the beginning. He points out the precise “heresy” that is printed in the study Bible, and has bee taught at major seminaries, in the video. He believes that the Zionism has been the drive of the major world wars and is the same for the Middle Eastern war, which is the Zionists’ plan (Armageddon and the WW3). Carlson warns that many Zionist Christians are helping the Zionists’ agenda in their deceived state. See: http://olivetjournal.com/on-zionism-a-video-collection

For years I have asked many people that profess or claim to be a Judeo/Christian , how can you BE a Jew and at the same time BE a Christian ? Does this mean you attend a synagogue and a church ? Did you know Jesus opposes violence ? He preached love one another and do not covet anything ? Todays Zionist political movement supported by many in the MSM [MainStreamMedia] has become a rallying point for the hybrid believers in the false doctrine of being a Judeo/Christian .

You people especially Tom Compton are clearly anti-Semantic and pro terrorist. How dare you say what Jesus would do is not bomb. Jesus first and foremost is a Jew and their King. They are the chosen people and the bible states that our Lord will return to save Israel from destruction and DESTROY it’s enemies. Have no doubt that Muslims are Israel’s enemy and their sole goal is to wipe them off the face of the earth. After everything that these disgusting people have done from blowing people up and beheading them to suppressing and abusing women to hating Israel and the West and cheering after terrorists attacks, how can anyone in their right mind defend them. Well I guess that is the answer obviously you people are not in your right minds.

Mary, Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.” And, he told us to love our neighbors as our selves and even love our enemies. So, if what Jesus said is true, please explain who he would bomb. According to the Apostle Paul, who was a Jewish zealot persecuting Christians before his conversion, he told us in Galatians 3: 28-29 that the “chosen people” are those who follow Jesus: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.” To confirm that statement go back to Galatians 3:16 to understand the context: “Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offspring,” referring to many, but referring to one, ‘And to your offspring,’ who is Christ.” My wife and I love our Jewish widow across the street and our Iranian neighbors, who, sadly, recently moved away. How are things in your neighborhood, Mary?

I wish your Power Point and Video presentation entitled The Cause of Our Conflict were still available. Yes I realize that it has been reworked into the documentary movie but I thought it was more compressed.

Andre, we are in the process of restoring our classic “The Cause of Our Conflict” presentation by Chuck Carlson. So, stay tuned. Thanks for your note of encouragement.

In response to Mary’s posting on November 18th, 2015.

Madam, since you have clearly taken the scriptures on Jews to the extreme of idolatry, with scant objective study of the scholarship on this particular site, I invite you as a descendant of Jews, to PLEASE study TrueTorahJews.org!

You should discover, hopefully, to your horror and shame, that TRUE followers of the Bible AHBOR Zionism whether they be Jewish or Christian…- a fact which has persisted since the very inception of Zionism! Indeed, your insistence to idolize Jews, WHILE demonizing those whom YOU deem to be their enemies, namely Muslims, not only exposes you to be a RACIST, HEARTLESS, CRUEL, WARMONGERING ANTICHRIST within yourself, but also the real ANTISEMITE!

WHY? The scholarship provided at TrueTorahJews.org explain it best, but in summary: YOU PLACE ALL JEWS and by association all TRUE Christians in danger from en encroaching NWO, by promotion of ‘Jewish Exceptionalism’ and thus by extension, hatred and genocide against all others which is the PRIMARY OBJECTIVE of ZIONISM!

Madam, you therefore are a DISGRACE to Christianity AND Torah Judaism! We reject you wholeheartedly! That is, unless you seek the True Nature of Christ, – that of ‘The Prince of Peace,’ – a concept whose rationale and gravitas clearly escapes you! In future, please be so kind as to DESIST from ‘helping’ us Jews! With ‘friends’ like you…-the world is fast becoming our enemy…-as per prophecy! Thank you for NOTHING!

Seeing as you have now removed Both the Comment for which I was banned from Christian United, AND the comment by the same person, I think it only right that you remove the comment against me which I consider slander.

Here the comments by Joe Cortes. He was the person I was accusing of antisemitism, not you or your page. This is the one directly above my comment.

Joe Cortes: Stop voting for jews that pass themselves for Christians.

And below your banning me was this:

Joe Cortes : Christians United for Peace u r so mistaken the founding fathers of the U.S. of A specificly states 200 years ago not you permit jews in America because they were as sick as their fanatical god Poor you so confused. So illiterate and ignorante. READ THE FORFATHERS of our nationm

I think the least you could do is remove what you wrote 5 hours later.
“Christians United for Peace Michael Swanson, was banned for his slander in this thread for calling us Anti-Semitic. For a Professor of History at Roger Williams University, you would think he knows the difference between Anti-Zionism & Antisemitism, but apparently he doesn’t. Calling us racist names like anti-Semitic to shut us up, is immediate grounds for shutting you up by banning you.”

… i was just blocked from the FB page “Christians United for Peace” for posting an OT quote. i have some questions for you, as i have never in my 50yrs on this planet heard anyone ever say that there was an OT god and a NT god.

… what did Jesus mean when He said “I and the Father are one.”” (John 10:30, ESV)

… how about “If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” (John 12:26, NKJV)

…. and again, “Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (John 14:23, NKJV)

… Who exactly is Jesus referring to as “My Father” if it is not the “God of the Old Testament”, as you put it?

… as far as blocking me for quoting from the OT, if you are actually Christians, then why don’t you want to ‘show me the truth’ instead of banning me for actually supporting peace?

.. but i see you ban lots of people, so i really don’t care. you are terribly confused. i will pray for you.

“And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.” (2 Timothy 2:24–26, ESV)

… i guess you prove that you are actually frauds. to bad. i liked and shared much of what you posted. you call me a “Messianic Jew” – that’s a riot. i am an anti-Zionist gentile, but it just shows how judgmental you are. so sorry for you…

We’re not sure how your post got to WHTT. We have nothing to do with “Christians United for Peace.” Perhaps, “Christians United for Peace” posted one of our stories. Also, we are curious why you would say, “but i see you ban lots of people…” A search of our website gives no results for your name, “Orland Foster.” We really do appreciate anti-Zionists in our work for peace and justice in the Holy Land.
