ISRAEL, JEWS AND ''ANTI-SEMITISM"
One of the greatest tools of a "misinformation" artist is the "Racist" label. If someone attacks your platform and questions your motives just call him a racist and the majority of his audience tunes out what he has to say. One of the masters of this are those Jews who constantly promote political Zionism. Contrary to the "public" line, the majority of the people that have "occupied" Israel are not real Jewish people in a strict sense.
REBIRTH OF ISRAEL, JEWS AND "ANTI-SEMITISM"
Here is an interesting quote from Jack Bernstein from his short but informative booklet entitled THE LIFE OF AN AMERICAN JEW (The Noontide Press, 1991), along with my comments in parentheses:
"It is important for us to understand that Jews are not one race of people. There are two distinct groups of Jews in the world and they come from two different areas of the world - the Sephardic Jews from the Middle East and North Africa, and the Ashkenazim (singular, Ashkenazi) Jews from Eastern Europe.
The Sephardic is the oldest group and it is they, if any, who are the Jews described in the Bible. They are blood relatives to the Arabs - the only difference between them is religion. (*These Sephardic or Middle Eastern Jews, the descendants of Abraham, had a tragic history of oppression and dispersion under four major empires, i.e., the Babylonian, the Medo-Persian, the Greek and the Roman Empire).
The Ashkenazim Jews, who now comprise 90% of the Jews in the world, had a rather strange beginning. According to historians, many of them Jewish, the Ashkenazim Jews came into existence about 1200 years ago. It happened this way:
At the eastern edge of Europe, there lived a tribe of people known as the Khazars. About the year 740 A.D., the Khazar king and his court decided they should adopt a religion for their people. So, representatives of the three major religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism, were invited to present their religious doctrines. The Khazars chose Judasim, but it wasn't for religious reasons. If the Khazars had chosen Islam, they would have angered the strong Christian world. If the Khazars had chosen Christianity, they would have angered the strong Islamic world. So, they played it safe: they chose Judaism. It wasn't for religious reasons the Khazars chose Judaism; it was for political reasons.
Sometime during the 13th Century, the Khazars were driven from their land and they migrated westward with most of them settling in Poland and Russia. These Khazars are now known as Ashkenazim Jews. Because these Khazar (Ashkenazim) Jews merely chose Judaism, they are not, in the strictest sense, really Jews: at least not blood Jews. Throughout their history, these Polish and Russian Ashkenazim Jews practiced socialism and worked to have their ideas implemented in these countries. By the late 1800s significant numbers of these socialist Jews were found in Germany, the Balkans and eventually all over Europe. Because of their interference in the social and governmental affairs of Russia, they became the target of persecution by the Czars. Because of this, migration of these socialist oriented Jews began. Some went to Palestine; some went to Central and South America; and a large number of them came to the U.S.
In 1897, the First Zionist Congress was held in Basel, Switzerland. At this Congress, it was decided to work toward the establishment of a Jewish state, and a search for land on which to build the Jewish state began. Great Britain offered the Zionists land in Africa. This the Zionists rejected. They wanted Palestine!
At the time, Palestine was inhabited by a half a million Palestinian Arabs and a few Palestinian (Middle Eastern) Jews who are blood related and who had lived together rather peacefully for centuries. (*This is why the term "Anti-Semitic", widely misused, has no meaning. Literally, if one were to be an "Anti-Semite", it would mean that he is against Jews, Saudi Arabians, Jordanians, Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqi, etc. etc. because they are all Semitic peoples. The term "Anti-Semitic" has become a convenient scapegoat word frequently used by Globalist-Elitists against the so-called conspiracy theorists or anyone who believes that everything is basically controlled and manipulated by a network of powerful and secretive international financiers conspiring to establish a One World Government).
With Palestine as their choice for a homeland, European Ashkenazim Jews began migrating to Palestine. So when you think of Jews, especially as related to Israel, keep in mind that there is a great difference between Sephardic and Ashkenazim Jews. They are not one united people. They are divided socially, politically and especially racially (*It is to be noted that there are also quite a number of Anti-Zionist Jews in the world, both among the Sephardics and the Ashkenazim). Bernstein also says: "Even though I was an Ashkanazi Jew from the U.S., I was placed lower on the list for housing because I had married a Sephardic Jewess. For the first three years of marriage, it was necessary for us to live with Ziva's (*his wife) aunt. This was because of the critical housing shortage in Israel and because of racism.
Housing in Israel is alloted as follows:
1) Ashkenazim Jews who have lived in Israel for many years are given first choice.
2) Second in line are Ashkenazim Jews from Europe........especially if they marry an Israeli-born Ashkenazi Jew.
3) the next favored are Ashkenazim Jews from the U.S.......especially if they marry an Israeli-born Ashkenazi.
4) Sephardic Jews have the next choice of whatever housing is left.
5) at the bottom of the list are Moslems, Druze and Christians (*especially Middle Eastern Christians, not so much European Christians). Opportunities for employment follows the same pattern: Ashkenazim Jews get the chociest jobs, Sephardic Jews next, and Moslem, Druze and Christians (*especially Middle-Eastern Christians, not so much European Christians) fill the menial jobs with a great many left unemployed". (END QUOTING).
The bottom line is that the Ashkenazim Jews' claim to Israel as their "birthright" place of origin is not correct. The Sephardics (or the Middle Eastern, or Palestinian Jews) are the "birthright" citizens of Israel. But the Ashkenazim Jews are the most militant, have the most money and are able to manipulate the governments of the world.
*As we can see, Israel is not a perfect country. Far from it. In fact, it is quite a racist nation as you can see. However, this does not necessarily mean that we should condemn Israel. We cannot condemn any country per se. It is all politics and leadership. Many of the nations of the world have blatant, racist policies, including even countries like Japan. We have to understand, however, that in every country there are good people as well as bad people. I love Israel because it was where our precious Savior, Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born 2000 years ago, grew up as a Middle Eastern Jew, shed His precious blood for our redemption and raised up into Heaven, where He is now seated at the right hand of God and waiting to take charge in the very near future at His Millenial Reign.
I believe that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, even though it was primarily effectuated by humanistic, political-Zionist movement and has caused and contiue to cause untold sufferings to the people of Palestine, was nevertheless a miracle wrought out by God as part of His fulfillment of the prophetic calendar in these end-time period we are living in. Yes, it is difficult to see all this in light of what has been happening in the Middle East. The Israel/Palestinian crisis will never be solved by human efforts. According to Bible prophecy, there will yet be major Wars in the Middle East, such as the scenario depicted in Ezekiel 38 and the final conflagration known as the Battle of Armageddon. In the meantime, however, every step should be taken towards the peaceful resolution to the crisis.
Through all this, we must trust in God.
The Bible says that God works in mysterious ways that we do not not fully understand. His "ways" are not our "ways". Many times we do not undertand His "ways". His timing is not our timing. But He can still use our humanistic, selfish ways and mistakes in eventually bringing out His program all for His purpose, all in His own time and in His own manner.
