The Root Cause of Anti-Semitism

The Root Cause of Anti-Semitism

What is behind the rising tide of hatred toward Jews?

Yesterday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the goal of the international community should be to annihilate Israel. Addressing a crowd of ambassadors from Islamic countries gathered to celebrate Iran’s upcoming annual anti-Semitic “Jerusalem Day,” he said, “Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.” Wiping Israel off the map and liberating Palestine, he proclaimed, would solve all the world’s problems.

The idea that Israel is the problem and that a Middle East without Jews would solve everything is shockingly not limited to crazed Islamic dictators. Hatred toward Jews, though often presented in a far subtler fashion, is nevertheless gaining alarming ground within the international community.

This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the “Munich Massacre,” which wasn’t just a tragedy for Israel—it was a tragedy for the Olympic Games that sent shock waves around the world. So how does the International Olympic Committee (ioc) respond to repeated requests to honor the 11 Israeli victims who were slaughtered by Palestinians at the Munich Games?

By not even allowing one minute of silence during London’s opening night ceremony. These are the Olympics, after all—they shouldn’t be politicized, says the ioc.

And neither should Lebanon’s judo team be expected to train anywhere near Jews. After the Lebanese refused to work out near their Jewish counterparts last week, Olympic officials quickly set up partitions between the two training camps. Organizers then convinced Reuters that it was only a simple matter of gamesmanship. Screens have always been available to teams who were concerned about competitors spying on them, officials said.

Even as Lebanese judo fighters refused to go near Jews in London, in Washington, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney avoided the subject of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel like it was a contagious disease. Carney’s slippery evasiveness follows a similarly ridiculous exchange in March between a reporter and a State Department spokesman who wouldn’t even acknowledge West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Think on that. Even if Israel—which has controlled all of Jerusalem for 45 years—pulled back to the 1949 armistice lines, it would still retain control of the west side of the city, which is where all of its government institutions are located: the Knesset, the Supreme Court, its government ministries, the prime minister’s and president’s residences, and so on.

There are plenty of international bodies and news agencies that are quite happy to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. The bbc even declaresEast Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine right now! Yet the United States can’t even acknowledge publicly that the west side of the city is Israel’s capital.

In New York, last month, the United Nations Human Rights Council devoted an entire day to bashing Israel for its human rights violations in the Palestinian territories. With the slaughter in Syria now closing in on 20,000 victims, you would think the Human Rights Council would be overwhelmed with monitoring the atrocities occurring north of Israel’s border.

But not according to the UN’s official summary of the July 2 meeting. It reads, “Syria, speaking as a concerned country, said that the Israeli forces continued their violations in a systematic and persistent manner. The Council and the Office of the High Commissioner must not remain silent before such practices and should not be put under pressure by the state committing state terrorism.”

In case you missed it—that was Syria urging the United Nations to speak out against Israel’s human rights violations! Meanwhile, the Assad regime continues slaughtering entire neighborhoods in its desperate attempt to hold on to power.

How does an organization that is supposed to be one of the world’s chief defenders of human rights get such skewed priorities?

One more example of deliberately bathing events in an anti-Israel light is the world’s portrayal of Palestinian “refugees”—people forced out of their homeland because of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict.

In an article titled “How Many Refugees?” former top U.S. national security official Elliott Abrams reported on the latest release of statistics by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics in June.

The latest count of Palestinian refugees came out at 5.1 million. But strangely, Abrams goes on to point out, a vast percentage of these “refugees” that now reside in other countries are under the age of 15. He wrote,

This means, for example, that more than a third of Palestinian “refugees” in Jordan were born after 1997. That is either 30 years (if after the 1967 war) or almost 50 years (if they fled when Israel was established in 1948) after their parents or more likely grandparents arrived in Jordan. Those in Jordan have full Jordanian citizenship and vote in Jordan, which means this: A young Jordanian of Palestinian origin, whose family has lived in Jordan for 30 years and who has himself or herself always lived in Jordan, is still considered a “refugee.”

You can bet the statisticians would not be so generous if they were counting Israeli refugees.

Abrams goes on to state that the official definition of a refugee recognized by the UN for every other category of refugees does not include this stipulation for subsequent generations. “For every other category of refugees in the world, the 1951 UN Convention on the status of refugees clearly applies to the refugee only and not subsequent generations,” he wrote.

Of all the refugees in the world recognized by the UN, only the Palestinian refugees are counted in this way. Why? Because the more Palestinian refugees there are, the worse Israel looks. Once again, we see the double standard at play.

Where is this Jew-hating spirit coming from?

Believe it or not, Satan actually exerts a great influence over the affairs of this world and many, unknowingly, are acting as his pawns to do his bidding. Revelation 12:9 says he is able to deceive the whole world.

This spirit of wanting to rid this world of an entire race of people comes straight from the devil. Satan has an intense hatred for all mankind and a special hatred for the biblical nation of Judah—and he spreads it like a disease. This kind of bitter, resentful hate is a contagion Satan is using to direct a great many people in the world today. The truly awesome purpose God has for the Jews—and the rest of Israel too—is something the god of this world absolutely hates.

God is not a respecter of persons—He doesn’t view Israel as a people better than others. Actually, from the beginning God called Israel out to be a model nation—a job it failed to do. Today, He has chosen His Church to fulfill the same role. The Church today, which is comprised of members of every race, is defined as spiritual Israel in the Bible. This is the true, yet astonishing, reason behind the intense hate for Israel today. The devil hates God’s plan and will do all he can to pervert it and destroy it.

How Herbert W. Armstrong’s Message to Georgios Ladas Will Save Cyprus

How Herbert W. Armstrong’s Message to Georgios Ladas Will Save Cyprus


Why the Cypriot acting president was so astonished at the gospel of Christ delivered in Nicosia

Cyprus is in crisis.

Sinking in debt, already bailed out by the Russians to the tune of over €2 billion, now the first order of business commanding Cyprus’s current half-year European Union presidency has been to request 5 billion again from Moscow and 10 billion from the coffers of Europe’s central bank.

Even as its million or more residents clutch their euros with great expectations of redemption from their fiscal sins, the Cypriot government knows that its strategic location in the eastern Mediterranean has great bearing on its negotiating position amid the present crisis.

The recent capture of a suspected Hezbollah terrorist acting on behalf of Iran in the Cypriot capital of Nicosia further fans the flames of regional tensions and underscores the geopolitical importance of this nation for various national groups as a bridge to Jerusalem.

The current leadership in Cyprus is probably unaware that 30 years ago in a stunning 1980s World Tomorrow television program, recorded shortly after visiting Cyprus, Herbert W. Armstrong told his millions of viewers worldwide why he was continuing to meet with heads of state:

I go as an unofficial ambassador for world peace … and yet I am actually the ambassador of Jesus Christ, who is the coming head of state over all nations.As a minister of Jesus Christ, many people ask, well what do I talk about when I talk to the heads of nations? Well, we talk about world conditions, about problems that they have, and their solutions. The causes of events. …That was the message God Almighty sent by Him—the causes of these troubles, the way out of these troubles and the final solution and the bringing in of world peace. And that’s what I go talking about.

Christ Himself, on the Sabbath day, taught such a message when He first came, and people were astonished at that doctrine of the coming Kingdom of God (Mark 1:21-22).

Mr. Armstrong was so stirred by the Cyprus trip that he devoted the entire television program to identifying the importance of the visit and sharing the reaction of perhaps one of the most astonished heads of state at the Matthew 24:14 gospel.

In a private meeting in Nicosia, acting President Georgious Ladas greeted Herbert Armstrong, stating, “It was very kind of you to come and see me.”

Mr. Ladas was a member of his country’s Democratic Party. His academic studies in law, politics and economics took place in the Greek scholarly center of Athens. He was elected president of the House of Representatives of Cyprus in 1981.

At the outset of the meeting, the unofficial ambassador for world peace spoke of the current troubles facing the Cypriot nation, noting, “It all gets back to the roots of civilization.”

The give and get way of mankind in his man-made 6,000-year civilization was recounted by Mr. Armstrong and agreed upon by the acting president.

Discussion then centered upon the biblically prophesied seventh resurrection of the medieval Holy Roman Empire combining both church and state in Europe, dominating the world.

“I tell you,” Mr. Armstrong declared to Mr. Ladas, “the God of all of our religions is going to step in supernaturally, by supernatural power, and is going to shake up this world, and is going to bring about such a condition that He is going to change the nature in us.”

He recounted how human nature will have to change, and mankind will start to work together in unity and cooperation.

He identified the problems in the Mideast as an example of man’s inhumanity to man and then touched on the problems of the West Bank. He recalled his friendships and meetings with Israel’s Prime Minister Begin, Jordan’s King Hussein, and Egypt’s Anwar Sadat and Hosni Mubarak.

“And they know,” Mr. Armstrong commented, “those on the Arab side know that I’m friendly with those in Israel. And those in Israel know that I’m friendly with the Arabs. I am just not going to have this kind of fighting. I am going to have cooperation, and I’m trying to bring that about, but we poor humans are not going to do it by ourselves.”

He then detailed for Cyprus’s head of state the history of the fallen archangel Lucifer, aided by his demons, and his rebellious, deceptive broadcasting into the minds of man the attitudes of animosity and the get way.

What was Mr. Ladas’s reaction to this powerful recounting of God’s gospel message? Silence? Hostility? Anger?

“Thank you very much for telling me all of these things I knew nothing about. This is a quite different aspect of the problems of the world, purely religious, which as a matter of fact I never thought about it. It is something entirely new. That aspect which you put before me today, here is something new for me. But I will have it in mind, and I will give it much thought”—to which Mr. Armstrong responded by thanking the acting president.

Concluding the World Tomorrow program, the unofficial ambassador added that there was more he shared with the Cypriot leader that day in Nicosia, and that Mr. Ladas actually asked for additional material on the subject. Prior to the television broadcast, the unofficial ambassador sent him a copy of a particular booklet.

What was that publication? It was written by Mr. Armstrong and titled Never Before Understood: Why Humanity Cannot Solve Its Evils.

At the conclusion of that booklet, now out of print, readers were offered a free enrollment in the Ambassador College Bible Correspondence Course.

Trumpet editor in chief and Armstrong College founder and chancellor Gerald Flurry led the Trumpet’s sponsor in a six-year court battle to regain, republish and redistribute this vital course in revelatory biblical understanding after its removal from circulation by its original publishers.

The Herbert W. Armstrong College Bible Correspondence Course has served over 50,000 students worldwide with the prophetic truth behind global events, along with the very gospel message of mankind’s purpose and the impending establishment of God’s Kingdom.

Enroll today, and like the Cypriot head of state, prepare to be astonished at the life-changing power contained in this vital course.

Saudi Arabia Calls Extraordinary Meeting of Muslim Nations

Saudi Arabia Calls Extraordinary Meeting of Muslim Nations


Saudi Arabia continues to create an anti-Iranian alliance.

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah called for an extraordinary meeting of Muslim leaders to be held August 14-15, the country’s state news agency reported July 22. Saudi Arabia is the head of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a 57-strong grouping of Islamic nations that has met 12 times since its foundation in 1969. This month’s meeting will be its fourth extraordinary summit.

King Abdullah called the meeting to “examine the situation in many countries of the Islamic world, intensify efforts to confront this situation, address the sources of discord and division therein, reunify the Islamic Ummah [community] and promote Islamic solidarity.”

The call for the meeting came as the violence in Syria heats up and the Alawite regime looks increasingly fragile.

United States-based intelligence company Stratfor wrote June 30 that Saudi Arabia “may be using the emergency summit to help position itself as a leader in the Muslim world, while casting Iran as a sectarian player.”

“It now sees a historic opportunity to seize the leadership of the Arab Middle East and to curtail Iranian influence in the region,” it continues.

Watch for Saudi Arabia to build a coalition of Middle Eastern nations opposed to Iran.

But also watch Iran. If, or rather when, Iran’s influence over Syria is pushed back—as Bible prophecy says it will be—it will be under pressure to prove that its influence isn’t retreating. Watch for Iran to redouble its efforts to reach out to Egypt and Libya, as it shows that it is still a nation with a wide reach and worth fearing.

Right now, the Middle East is going through a key period of change. At the end, almost all the nations will be in one of two camps. One will be a radical Islamic camp led by Iran, which will include Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Ethiopia. The other will be an anti-Iranian coalition, with Turkey and Saudi Arabia as the major players, but also including other Gulf states and Syria. This coalition will align itself with Germany as Europe becomes wary of Iran’s growing influence. Already, Germany, alongside the U.S., is arming members of this group to counterbalance Iran.

This is what Saudi Arabia’s machinations with an emergency summit are all about. Amid the turmoil in the Middle East this summer, watch for these two key alliances to emerge.

Is This the Start of Radical Islam’s Takeover of Ethiopia?

Is This the Start of Radical Islam’s Takeover of Ethiopia?

The growing tension between the Ethiopian government and Muslims could very easily, and quickly, explode.

In April 2011, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry delivered a bold forecast. Here’s what he wrote: “Libya and Ethiopia are … going to be closely allied with Iran! … So you need to watch Libya and Ethiopia. … You need to continue to watch for Libya and Ethiopia to make a severe and rapid turn into the radical Islamic camp.”

At the time, many readers rejected this warning as absurd. This is a “most bizarre article,” retorted one Trumpet reader from Ethiopia. My country is “one of the oldest and [most] devout Orthodox Christian nations on the planet (since third century) and a staunch ally of the United States. On behalf of U.S., Ethiopia invaded Somalia in late 2006 and kicked out ruling Islamic Courts Union …. [That] doesn’t sound like a nation doing Iran’s bidding.”

He’s right too, at least in his facts.

On May 5, 2011, when Mr. Flurry published “An Islamic Takeover of Libya and Ethiopia,” he again inspired disbelief. “I don’t think this is a sensible prophecy,” wrote one reader from Ethiopia, “especially when it comes to the situation of Ethiopia. … Please, try to study what exactly the situation is in Ethiopia. The country is dominated by Christians for centuries, and this is highly unlikely to change.” He’s right too, factually.

There’s a larger lesson here, which we’ll get back to later. But for now, let’s follow this reader’s advice and study the situation in Ethiopia at the start of August 2012, more than 18 months after Mr. Flurry first delivered his “absurd” forecast.

Last week, the Washington Times published an article headlined “Muslim Protests Raise Fears of Radical Islam in Ethiopia.” According to the Times,Clashes between Islamic protesters and riot police over the weekend in Ethiopia have raised fears that Muslims are becoming increasingly radical in a predominantly Christian country that has been a key U.S. ally in combating terrorism in the Horn of Africa.”

Two days later, a headline in the Christian Science Monitor asked, “Will Ethiopian Crackdown Stir Islamist Backlash?” The Monitor warned that the “the act of civil disobedience from Muslims, who constitute at least one third of the population, is a rare sign of instability in a country seen by U.S. policymakers as a bulwark against radical Islam in the volatile Horn of Africa region.”

In recent months, there has been a measurable increase in tension, instability and violence in Ethiopia between the government and elements of the Muslim population. On July 13, violence broke out between the two in the nation’s capital after Muslims at the Awalia Mosque compound refused to heed warnings to refrain from conducting a “charity” event while African heads of state were in town for an African Union summit. When government forces stepped in to forcefully disband the Muslim event, violence broke out, resulting in the arrest of 74 Muslims.

A week later, tensions ignited again when Muslim protesters blocked police from entering the Anwar Mosque in Addis Ababa.

Meanwhile, in April, four Muslims were killed during a melee surrounding the arrest of an Islamic cleric accused of preaching radical Islam in the town of Asasa. In May, the Ethiopian government deported two Arabs of unknown origin after they were picked up for inciting violence outside of Addis Ababa’s largest mosque.

The uptick in crackdowns on Muslims is a sign of the government’s concern that radical Islamist elements are gaining momentum in Ethiopia. According to Shiferaw Teklemariam, Ethiopia’s minister for federal affairs, the purpose of the July 13 gathering outside the mosque in Addis Abab was to hatch plans for an Islamic uprising. The meeting was “deliberately provocative,” he stated. “This group actually deals day and night to create an Islamic state.”

The problem with the increasing government crackdowns, some experts claim, is that they may stoke the frustration and rage of Ethiopia’s large Muslim population. Hassan Hussein, an Ethiopian human rights activist, worries that the government crackdown could even result in a widespread backlash along the lines of what happened in Egypt and Libya. He warns that the Muslim “protesters know that they have the support of the majority of the population so long as their demand is for civil liberties and democratic freedoms. Other sectors could press similar demands, and it might escalate into calls for regime change as has happened in the Arab Spring.

If anti-government protests take root, it’s possible Ethiopia’s radical Islamist elements could—much like the Muslim Brotherhood did during Egypt’s revolution—exploit the social unrest to establish greater influence, both on the street and then within whatever political regime emerged in Addis Ababa. Of course, it’s early, and the Muslim rebellion isn’t necessarily large or widespread, but the seeds have been sown.

Given the right conditions, the tension could blossom quickly into something larger and more dangerous—especially if Ethiopia is thrust into a leadership crisis, which is imminent. There is a great deal of mystery surrounding the health of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. The consensus seems to be that Mr. Zenawi has brain cancer, although some say he’s already dead. Whatever the case, Mr. Zenawi is extremely unwell and has been noticeably absent from public affairs in recent weeks.

Moreover, it’s become increasingly obvious that replacing Mr. Zenawi, the anchor of Ethiopian politics, is not going to be quick, simple or clean. As Alemayehu G. Mariam wrote this week, Ethiopia’s constitution is vague and inconclusive regarding rules of succession. It is clear that “Ethiopia is now facing not only a leadership and power vacuum but also a monumental constitutional crisis in the absence of a constitutional plan or procedure for succession,” explained Mariam.

A nation without a leader and no clear strategy for succession “is an invitation to political chaos, conflict and instability” (ibid).

Think on this.

The Ethiopian government is increasingly determined to confront radical Islamists, both internally and within its immediate sphere of influence (Somalia and Eritrea). More and more people within Ethiopia’s Muslim community are becoming frustrated, angry and politically energized. Resentment is welling, protests are increasing, anti-government violence is already occurring. Meanwhile, regional Islamist groups, some aligned with radicals in Saudi Arabia, others with Iran, continue to strengthen their presence in the nation.

Then, on top of all this, Ethiopia’s prime minister is about to die, which will thrust the nation into political and social tumult.

Talk about a powder keg!

And we haven’t even considered regional politics.

Take Iran. Tehran is in serious jeopardy of losing the Assad regime in Syria as its key regional ally. Its proxies in southern Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Gaza (Hamas) are beginning to distance themselves. Meanwhile, a regional coalition against Assad—and therefore against Iranian interests—is developing behind regional heavyweights Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Worse still (for Iran), this coalition is gaining the support of Germany and Europe. As these trends continue, Iran will find itself in deep trouble strategically.

This makes Iran extremely dangerous right now. And we can be sure Iran’s mullahs are brainstorming ways to restore the nation’s strategic position vis-à-vis the growing German-Saudi coalition! What will it do?

One way to anticipate how Iran might react to these circumstances is to study a map of the Middle East. Iran still has radical Islamist friends with a formidable foothold in Yemen and Somalia. Meanwhile, radical Islam is emerging as the controlling influence in Egypt. Strategically, each of these states sits adjacent to one of the most important assets in the entire world: the Red Sea!

If Iran can establish control of the Red Sea—one of the most important energy and trade routes in the world—it will have Saudi Arabia surrounded, and Europe and the West at its mercy!

Expect Iran to reestablish its strategic position by improving ties with Egypt, and to a lesser extent, Somalia and Yemen.

Meanwhile, pay attention to the two countries between Egypt and Somalia: Ethiopia and Eritrea! Tehran will not resist the opportunity to exploit to its advantage the growing social and political uncertainty—as well as the Islamist dissatisfaction and potential uprising—in these nations!

Go back and read “Libya and Ethiopia Reveal Iran’s Military Strategy,” Mr. Flurry’s April 2011 article on this subject. It’s an incredible article: Besides warning that Libya and Ethiopia would come under the influence of Iran and radical Islam, he explained explicitly how radical Islam would seek to gain control over the Red Sea. It’s true this forecast wasn’t thoroughly underpinned by facts on the ground when it was written. Ethiopia is predominantly Christian, and at the time, the nation was stable and there was no evidence that radical Islam was a major threat.

But that’s what makes it so inspiring: Mr. Flurry delivered this forecast without reams of physical evidence! How?

Because he had the ultimate fact, the supreme truth, the only evidence that really matters. He had, and humbly believedand boldly repeated for the world to hear, what the Apostle Peter termed “the more sure word of prophecy.” And now the facts on the ground are beginning to align with the Bible’s forecast!

The federal debt is rising how fast?

Face the Facts usa is reporting that the federal deficit is increasing by a luxury suv’s worth of red ink—every second! It writes:

In every second of 2011, the government spent $114,253 while taking in only $73,043 in revenue. That means in each second, the federal government spent $41,210 that it didn’t have. Divided among every man, woman and child in the U.S., the 2011 deficit amounted to $4,158.

Does this really sound sustainable to anyone? Can Congress really justify this kind of spending?

The U.S. government borrowed more than $4,000 per person this year, but the really scary thing is that it borrowed even more during each of the past three years!

When you get into the hundreds of billions and trillions, it is difficult to picture just how much money the government is borrowing. Face the Facts usa did a great job in this regard. The government is borrowing the equivalent of a brand-new luxury suv each and every second—all year long. Actually, a pile of suvs that large is pretty hard to imagine too.

This kind of spending is unsustainable. Unfortunately, the economy is addicted to government spending. After the election ends and the tax hikes and/or spending cuts kick in, the economy will take a huge hit.

Conclusion: Start preparing now for higher unemployment and fewer government services. As always, now would also be a great time to reduce debt.

American-Pakistani Ties Unraveling

The political relationship between Pakistan and America has been strained for the past several years, especially since the resignation of former President Pervez Musharraf.

The New York Times reported on Monday that American-Pakistani relations still have “a tinderbox quality, [driven] by differences over cia drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal belt, the Afghan war and, most contentiously, the Haqqani network”—a terrorist group affiliated with the Taliban and headquartered in Pakistan. “The arguments are well worn: American officials say the Pakistani military’s Inter-Services Intelligence spy agency is covertly aiding the insurgents; Pakistani officials deny the accusation.”

Although the new Pakistani government more convincingly fits the mold of a democratic ally than Musharraf did, the reality is, the relationship is worse than it was during Musharraf’s reign.

Before his resignation, Musharraf was a lukewarm ally of the U.S.—but an ally nonetheless. There is some evidence that he favored both sides in the “war on terror,” but he was not openly against American policy. However, with pressure from influential politicians, the U.S. gave Musharraf an impossible ultimatum, which led to his resignation.

That was a huge strategic blunder, my father noted in January 2008: “American leaders are telling Musharraf to take off his military uniform and give real freedom to that country. However, the military is the only institution that gives stability to that extremely divided country! This is another example of how little our leaders know about Pakistan.”

February 2008 saw elections give power to a new coalition government. But the “power” is fragile at best. Vast territories, especially in northwest Pakistan, host breeding grounds for a few very influential radical Islamic groups, like al Qaeda and the Taliban, and there are ethnic and tribal differences throughout the country.

As we’ve pointed out before, this history is eerily similar to what happened in Iran during the late 1970s. Back then, my father wrote, “our liberal press and politicians thought [the shah of Iran] was too undemocratic, so they helped to drive him from power. As he was falling, America gave him little or no support.” The Iranian Revolution that followed paved the way for an Islamic Republic that has since turned into the number one state sponsor of terrorism.

My father wrote, “More than any other nation (apart from Iran itself), America is responsible for the overthrow of the shah and the ushering in of Ayatollah Khomeini. Our weakness could prove to be the biggest foreign-policy disaster of the 20th century!” That article was titled “Pakistan and the Shah of Iran.” It contains a sobering warning—not only for Pakistan, but for the United States mainly!

He continued: “There would be no state-sponsored terrorism in the Middle East if America had the will to use its power! But America’s problem is even worse than a weak will. We even help push our allies into the hands of radical Islam. That is a dangerous kind of ignorance.”
