Several reasons for peacefully dismantling Israel

by returning stolen land to Palestinians Monday, Jul. 17, 2006 at 3:02 PM

Following the latest unprovoked attacks on Lebanon by Israel, it is clear that the Zionist apartheid regime of Israel needs to be dismantled ASAP>>

One issue the US corporate media neglects to mention is that many Jewish and Christian people are also calling for an end to the military occupation of Palestine by Zionist Israel. There are also many non-religious groups (athiests, agnostics, pagans, etc..) calling for an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine, though this article will focus specifically on Judeo-Christian religious groups oppossed to Israeli occupation of Palestine..

Orthodox Jewish rabbis from the anti-Zionist organization Neturei Karta have traveled throughout the world sharing their message for the peaceful dismantling of Israeli's apartheid Zionist government..

“Judaism is a religion and spirituality. Turning Judaism on its head, transforming this holy religion into a materialistic nationalism, with a singular earthly goal of land conquest and military prowess, void of Godliness, is exactly what the State of ‘Israel’ is about. Attempting to leave exile and all the other cardinal crimes associated and committed by Zionism and its ‘State’, such as the theft from, subjugation and oppression of, the Palestinian people, the continuous attempts to uproot the Torah and oppress the Torah-true Jews, etc., are to us religious Jews the worst tragedy.”

“Orthodox Torah-true Jews are humiliated and pained by the terrible crimes that Zionism and its ‘State’ are committing. The humiliation is compounded, when this is being done in the name of ‘Israel’, the name that Zionism has appropriated from the Jewish religion.”

“Therefore we disassociate ourselves entirely from the State of ‘Israel’ and reiterate the decree of our sages that it is forbidden to participate in the ‘Israeli’ elections.”

“We pray for the speedy and peaceful dismantlement of the entire State of ‘Israel’. Our yearning and prayers are ultimately for the revelation of the glory of the Almighty, when all nations will serve Him, in harmony and joy. Amen.”

That being said it cannot be considered "anti-Semitic" to call for the abolition of Israel and returning Palestinian land to Palestinian sovereignty. The war crimes of the Israeli government against the people of Palestine and Lebanon deserves the same war crime tribunal treatment as the US government against Iraqi (& many other) people, and the previous Nazi German government against Jews, Roma, homosexuals, etc..

The origins of Israeli Zionism was rooted in segregation of Jews from non-Jews, and several Christian Zionists have emerged into prominant positions to promote this segregation indefinitely until their prophecy of "Armageddon" is fulfilled..

There needs to be further criminal investigations into Christian Zionist leaders Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ralph Reed, John Hagee and others with regards to the effects of their political and financial contributions to escalation of violence in the Israel/Palestine conflict. From the Christian Zionists' trade in former apartheid South Africa (and with Zaire's Mobutu) bloodstained conflict diamonds via Israel for military weapons decades ago to recent relocation and resettlement programs where Russian/Eastern European Jews are moved into the pressure cooker settlements of West Bank and Gaza Strip knowing that this incursion will provoke further violence between Palestinians and recent Israeli settlers..

Contrary to Robertson's Christian Zionist evangelists a different group of politically aware Christians declares the Zionist evangelist Pat Robertson as guilty of profiting from bloodstained conflict diamonds..

"Get rich! - that's what the leaders of today's American church want to do. This is precisely what Pat Robertson was up to in the Congo with regard to "Operation Blessing," which was nothing more than a FRONT for his own private "get-rich-scheme" involving the African Development Co. (ADC) in conjunction with the late dictator of Zaire (the Congo), Mobutu Sese Seko. The ADC received a vast forestry and mineral concession in the Congo, together with a diamond concession from Mobutu, a mining operation involving the trade in so-called "conflict diamonds" - the illegal trading of diamonds mined by child "slave-laborers" who are worked to death in diamond mines in conditions that even DeBeers of South Africa would find repugnant - and that's saying a lot.

Robertson used "Operation Blessing" as a FRONT for garnering "start-up" funds for the ADC. In April, 1997 two pilots who worked for "Operation Blessing" charged that planes linked to Robertson and his ministry flew mostly to haul equipment for ADC's private diamond operation. Robert Hinkle, the chief pilot told reporter Bill Sizemore that of about 40 flights within Zaire during the half-year period he was there,

"Only one or at most two were related to the humanitarian mission of 'Operation Blessing'. The rest were 'mining-related'. We got over there and we had 'Operation Blessing' painted on the tails of the airplanes, Hinkle told the Virginian-Pilot, 'but we were doing no humanitarian relief at all. We were just supplying the miners and flying the dredges from Kinshasa out to Tdshikapa'."

(BTW, the 'antipas' website's "End Times" statement should not be confused with Christian Zionist's man-made nuclear holocaust "Armageddon". The 'antipas' website's 'End Times' are described as when spiritual people rise up against imposter Christian Zionist imperialists like Robertson, Falwell, etc.. and pull these tyrants down from their thrones of deception!!)

So how does Robertson's profit from trade in conflict diamonds from Africa relate to the recent bombing of Lebanon by Israeli military??

Much of the profits from conflict diamonds went into bolstering Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), his cable news mouthpiece where he implores more donations from working class people in the US to finance relocation and resettlement of Russian Jews into Israel..

"Ralph Reed, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and a host of other conservative Christian leaders now lobby on behalf of Israel and support the most hard-line Israeli positions. Many fundamentalist Christian groups finance efforts to resettle Russian Jews in Israel, often in settlements in the occupied territories that offer settlers special tax breaks and financial inducements to move there.

“You have a number of very conservative Christian groups that support settlements because they see this as a way of strengthening Jewish hold on the land of Israel because in their mind this is important for end-of-time theology and part of hastening the Second Coming and the conversion of Jews that would be entailed in some of the theology. One would think that would be a good reason for conservative Jewish groups not to be involved with these groups, but they have made a pact to focus on political goals. They leave the proselytizing at the door when they entered into joint activity,” said Lewis Roth, president of Americans for Peace Now, a U.S. branch of the Israeli movement Peace Now."

The goal of Christian Zionists and their neo-conservative Jewish Zionist "Uncle Tom" stooges (ex., Wolfowitz, Perle, Feith, AIPAC, etc..) is the long term violent occupation of Muslim lands by US/Israeli forces for the purposes of extracting and selling of the remaining petroleum reserves to the highest bidders..

The military escalation and desired nuclear conflict by Christian Zionists falls into their psuedo-prophetic "Battle of Armageddon" and "Rapture", a man-made nuclear holocaust (self-fulfilling prophecy) where all non-Christians are forcibly converted or perish in a nuclear holocaust (already beginning with depleted uranium). Again, many non-Zionist Christians denounce this "Armageddon" theory of Christian Zionists as false prophecy and heresy, though Pat Robertson isn't listening to anyone else besides his accountant..

"Christian Zionism as a Representation of American Manifest Destiny.

Lawrence Davidson

An historical conflation of the United States and the biblical Hebrews is as old as the country itself. Many American feel a sense of purpose that they say comes from God and constitutes a parallel manifest destiny with both the ancient and modern Israelites. …this belief can be found in the speeches of American political leaders at all levels. It is a deeply held belief that manifests itself in the rationalizations and policies of Congress and American presidents. Today this orientation is backed up by organized religious groups…"

More @ Challenging Christian Zionism @;

http://www.christianzionism.org/articlesN.asp

Israel's role as a US colonial outpost fits into Robertson's neo-colonialist vision of Judeo-Christian imperialist expansionism, the "Last Crusades" of conversion, genocide and resource (oil) theft/profits..

"This is a background piece that goes beyond the Israel-Palestine conflict to place Israel within a global context -- as an agent of American Empire. Although Israel began as a progressive state, the need to mobilize support for its Occupation, coupled with a self-serving “alliance” with the US, has led Israel to become a center for the global right-wing forces that seek American-Christian hegemony."

Above is a list of many non-Zionist Christians and Jews who DO NOT support the actions of Israel and their Zionist Christian peers. Christian Zionism's finincial/political support of Israeli militarism needs to be included in the discussion as a major source of the conflicts between Israelis and Palestinians, also preventing hijacking of the pro-Palestine peace movement by genuine anti-Semitic neo-Nazi thugs..

Neo-nazi stooges have already infested the pro-Palestinian peace movement and portray Israeli (& American) Jews as the villians and the US as the helpless friend being dragged into the conflict alongside Israel. This view is the opposite of reality where a minority of "Uncle Tom" Israeli neo-con stooges (Wolfowotz, Feith, Perle, AIPAC, etc..) shamelessly bow down before Christian Zionists and petroleum profiteers Bush/Cheney/Robertson/etc.., sacrificing the greater Jewish people's ethical reputation by enabling the deadly actions of the Israeli military to continue indefinitely (until the oil is sold off?), each escalation adding more innocent bodies to the pile while the Bush/Cheney regime counts their petroleum profits, psuedo-Christians Robertson/Falwell counts their Zionist CBN propaganda profits, and the Jewish Zionist neo-cons Feith/Perle/Wolfowitz count their hush money..

What needs to take place is war crime trials for all the above mentioned Zionist leaders (Bush, Robertson, Feith, etc..) and their accomplices. If found guilty, same treatment as Nazi war criminals from Nurnberg..
