CENSORSHIP AT NEWS WITH VIEWS
By Rev. Ted Pike
12 Jan 10
For generations, most evangelical Christians have looked on as Israel bludgeoned the Palestinians. They have done nothing but bless and support Israel’s reign of terror in Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza. Now thousands of their brethren—Jewish Christians in Israel and the Occupied Territories—endure constant discrimination and harassment from ultra-Orthodox Jews. (See http://kingsmenarad.com/) The Israeli government and local authorities do nothing to defend them. And evangelicals in western nations remain largely oblivious. Why?
It’s partly because evangelical American media will not report persecution of Christians in Israel! It is quick to publicize persecution of believers in Moslem or Communist countries such as China; but virtually no account of Israeli persecution of Christians is seen or spoken of on Christian internet, publishing or airwaves. Christian leaders fear offending Israel or seeming “anti-Semitic.” I witnessed such censorship in action this week.
Over the past six weeks, News with Views (a large Christian/conservative internet newspaper with 200,000 daily visitors) has published my articles; these pieces expose the Anti-Defamation League’s attempt to make “conspirators” and anti-Semites out of millions of Christians and Obama-criticizing Americans. NWV also posted my latest article revealing attempts by the state of Israel to define more than a billion people as “anti-Semites” for indulging in “strong criticism” of Israel (See Is ‘Strong’ Criticism of Israel Anti-Semitic?).
The initial articles (also read widely on rense.com) were primarily responsible for national backlash against ADL’s “Toxic Rage Report.” The first three were each posted on up to 100 blogs and websites. About 50 readers howled “Anti-Semitism!” when NWV owner/editor Paul Walter posted my first article. But the protest subsided when Rabbi Nachum Shifren confirmed all I said. In his unprecedented article, “The ADL vs. Faith and Freedom,” Shifren agreed that ADL is Jewish and conspires toward world dominion. Since then, there has not been a single criticism to Walter about my articles. He says all are factual and well documented.
Nevertheless, Walter refused to print my latest, ” Israel’s Increasing Anti-Christianity.” (See Israel’s Increasing Anti-Christianity) This report details how Israeli Christians are publicly spat on by Orthodox Jews; how Israel threatens five- to seven-years in prison for witnessing; how Christians live under incessant persecution in cities such as Arad and Ariel; and how naive evangelicals fund the very groups in Israel that persecute Christians!
Walter told me that, for the present, NWV has published enough articles against ADL and Israel. He expressed fear that NWV could create an image of Ted Pike as “obsessed” with criticism of Jews which might make Walter’s site look anti-Semitic. Such a reputation might cause some of his hundred Christian conservative writers to jump ship. As a result, I must say nothing concerning Jewish issues for my next six or seven articles. The subject of Jews, Israel and the Middle East is vast and complex, ranging through religious, military, financial, legislative, and geopolitical considerations. But I must now make no mention of Jews for nearly two months.
Meanwhile, what if Jewish ADL and the US Justice Department announce concrete plans for stepped-up federal hate crimes enforcement? ADL may specify its plan to train an army of hate crimes prosecutors in America. Just last week Ireland adopted an extremely punitive, ADL-inspired hate crimes law, meting a $35,000 fine for strong criticism of another’s religion! ADL’s ENDA bill may be moving forward soon. Yet if I am obedient to Walter, I will say nothing of these issues, just when they are most timely and speaking out is most vital to saving freedom. I asked Walter how Americans will even know Christians are persecuted in Israel if we don’t sound the alarm. Certainly, I said, WorldNetDaily won’t tell them.
Walter agreed, “WorldNetDaily’s audience does not like such stories.”
Talk about a chill on free speech!
Media Leaders Must Answer to God
Scripture says if any self-professed Christian sees his brother in need and “shuts up his bowels of compassion” then God’s love is not in him. (I John 3:17) Paul Walter and WND owner Joseph Farah influence millions and could jumpstart international pressure to relieve suffering Christians in Israel. More than anything, Christians in Israel need the world to know. Exposure would put pressure on Israel to allow freedom of religion.
The gatekeepers of Christian media need to allow stories of Israeli persecution of Christians. All evangelical leaders are bound, under penalty of the loss of their souls, to quickly and accurately warn their listeners of danger. The anti-Christianity in Israel, which is now advancing through the world via Israel’s PR arm, ADL, is a very urgent danger.
As Rabbi Shifren said in NWV, ADL’s intention is to establish a one-world order. Shifren said ADL continues the communist/revolutionary movement which “has done more damage to the Jews and caused more murder and destruction than all of Israel’s enemies combined.” ADL is “neutralizing the fabric of America, getting it ripe for a takeover in which the ADL can take part…What the Soviets could not do in Russia, the ADL will attempt to do in America.” (See Shifren’s article, The ADL vs. Faith and Freedom) Yet Walter feels he may have printed too many warnings against ADL!
Tragically, Joseph Farah fails to warn of this all-encompassing evil generated by an ADL/B’nai B’rith/Mossad cabal in Israel. Instead, through articles by Aaron Klein in Jerusalem, he feeds the rankest Mossad propaganda to millions of unsuspecting evangelicals! (Farah admitted he received more invitations to speak from ADL/B’nai B’rith and other Jewish groups this past year than from Christians.) (See Farah’s article, The ADL Targets WND)
In the Judgment Day will Walter and Farah argue that they couldn’t print stories about Christian suffering because their “Israel-first” evangelical readers didn’t like it? Does an aesthetic “imbalance” of warnings by Rev. Ted Pike give Walter the right to muffle truth? God’s terms are simple: If media leaders fear offense and don’t aid suffering Christians by sounding the alarm, they will lose their eternal souls! (Ezek. 33)
A majority of what ails America today may be blamed on Jewish “civil liberties” groups such as ADL, ACLU, SPLC, PAW, etc. The decline in American morals can also be traced directly to the control of Hollywood, the “Big Three” TV networks, and major publishing houses, magazines, and newspapers owned by liberal Jews. (See Jews Confirm Big Media Is Jewish) Similarly, the arrival of the Jewish state in Palestine a century ago, right or wrong, undeniably began the destabilization and alienation of the Muslim world (especially from the Gospel), which only intensifies today.
Is NWV really in danger of educating too much about this threat? Aaron Klein, WND’s correspondent from Jerusalem, writes at least weekly only about pro-Israel topics. Joseph Farah obviously doesn’t feel WND is in danger of “obsession” with the subject of Jews!
I certainly do not intend to write only about Jewish topics. Yet Jewish issues, particularly those of Jewish supremacism, remain intensely relevant. I specialize on the subject and have a singular willingness to speak publicly. I am bold because I am confident of God’s protection and armed with biblical truth and perspective, as well as love for the Jewish people. I honor God’s ultimate plan to redeem a Jewish remnant at Christ’s Second Coming.
Stop Telling Half-Truths!
The half-truths of evangelical media have brought us to our present disarray and weakness before Obama and the international globalist threat. The biggest half-truth of the past century is the idea that our primary opponents are liberals, globalists, secular humanists, etc.
The whole truth is that these are but tentacles of a Talmudic kabbalistic conspiracy to dominate the globe, launched by the same Pharisees who had Christ killed. It is now continued by their spiritual descendants.
Half-truths never saved a soul, a marriage or a nation. Half-truths are worse than outright lies because they provide false assurance of possessing the truth. They inoculate people against the whole truth, causing them to reject and even persecute the truth teller. Half-truths are appeasement that empowers tyranny. Over the past century Christians and conservatives have dedicated themselves to the idea that half-truths in opposition to Communism and liberalism can save freedom; the whole truth is considered too controversial — even provoking the dreaded accusation of anti-Semitism.
It is now clear that the speaking of political and religious half-truths concerning our enemy has empowered the anti-Christ agenda and largely squandered a century of Christian/conservative energy. In contrast, the whole truth, while it may generate controversy, is a cleansing, liberating wind that brings life. Jeremiah, John the Baptist and Jesus Christ always spoke the undiminished truth at God’s leading.
By God’s grace, my message will always be the whole truth, under what I understand as the distinct leading of God. Paul Walter is wrong to think I will write seven articles of pablum under his terms of censorship, to merit the privilege of telling Christians of the plight of their Israeli brethren. I only write articles that are acts of war against the greatest threat to faith and freedom in the history of mankind—a misshapen system of politics and religion which proceeds from the ancient Pharisees. This, I believe, is what it really means to be a watchman on the wall.
