*Israeli Zionists are coaches for the acts of churchgoing Christian Zionists (CZ hereafter). We Hold These Truths will not take an accessible, wrong path by joining those who blame the standing President and his politics for the massacre at a Christchurch mosque. His are only a few of many hate acts against Muslims and Islamic states. One that our President did not control occurred the same morning in Gaza on March 15, 2019. We Hold These Truths leaders demand a more logical cause for Islamophobia, and we found it in our evangelical churches long before Donald Trump held any office.
We named the racist based theology found in evangelical churches, “Christian Zionism.” It allows and justifies mass murders. Some Christian Zionist leaders have even called for past and future war. We Hold These Truths has been pointing to the blood guilt of Christian Zionist leaders for a decade and a half. They provided the swing votes to elect our current President. CZ’s have this power because Israel, and world Zionists support them.
The mass murderer of Christchurch, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, named our President as his “white supremacist” ideologue. But we must look past our President to the political force that supports him to find the source of violence. Church-based Christian Zionists (CZ) is the biggest one. Nor is impeachment the answer. Vice President Mike Pence, another CZ is quietly waiting in the wings.
What is the role of Israeli Zionists in the Christchurch Massacre? A typical media response came from author Leonid Bershidsky in Bloomberg News the very morning of the Christchurch attack:
“The deadly attacks on two New Zealand mosques should draw attention to an obvious fact: Terrorists linked to the far right are no less murderous than the Islamist groups that get more headlines and attention from politicians.”
In other words, Jewish writer Bershidsky asserts that the Muslims in Christchurch had it coming because of terrorist acts by other Muslims, in other places at other times.
Christian Zionism is an un-Christlike faction within Christianity, more like a lodge or cult than a faith. It is intentionally generated inside Christian Churches usually, but not always, known as “Evangelicals.” There are no Jesus Christ teachings that accept murder and war by any name. But Christian Zionists do so out of a misguided emotional belief that the modern State of Israel altered Jesus’ teaching about love and peace. The Christian Zionist definition that We Hold These Truths developed is; “The belief that the present-day state of Israel is the fulfillment of Christian bible prophesies.”
We can not excuse our Christian Zionist friends and relatives for looking the other way…often justifying the almost daily murder of Gaza Strip residents. The Israeli Zionists, are systematic killers. The same day that Brenton Harrison Tarrant murdered 49 humans in Christchurch, US media reported the Israeli military release that it had struck “approximately 100 targets” in Gaza. As is usual, it made no accounting of the death toll.
This writer has personally observed and photographed an Israeli Hellfire missile attack on Gaza in 2002. Each missile is designed to kill, and can not help but kill when unleashed into one of the densest population areas in the Middle East. We will be looking for a death report to see if Israel exceeded the 49 killed in Christchurch on the very same day, but it is unlikely to make the US news!
The painful bottom line is; churchgoing Christian Zionists are among our best friends and family members. But they are also at the root of our war problem, and the unwitting cause of the murder of uncountable Palestinians. Worse yet, Christian Zionists find it very difficult to hear and believe the truth about their acts and their chosen cult, for reasons we will explain in part II of this series. We will also touch upon some examples of how Israeli Zionists and Jewish media activists go about muffling resistance of voices not unlike ours.
