Ted Cruz Uncritically Supports Israel… Israel Did This… If You Vote Republican YOU Support This Too

00 palestine. kid injured by isreali cops. 22.05.15

______________________________

On Thursday, witnesses said that Israeli occupation forces critically injured a Palestinian child after shooting him with a rubber-coated steel bullet near the Shufat refugee camp. Yahiya Sami al-Amudi, 10, was walking near a checkpoint by the East Jerusalem refugee camp when Israeli soldiers shot him. First responders took him to the Hadassa Hospital in Ein Karem with a fractured skull, jaw, and left ear, and surgeons had to remove his left eye. Doctors say that he’s in critical condition. Thaer Fasfous, a spokesman for Fatah in the camp, condemned the targeting of children with tear gas, stun grenades, and rubber-coated bullets. Israeli police media contact Micky Rosenfeld said that there were “disturbances” in the Shufat area after locals threw stones at municipality workers. He added that Israeli occupation police used “non-lethal” weapons, “slightly injuring” a 10-year-old boy, who responders took to hospital.

Editors:

I am anti-Zionist to the bone… I am anti-anti-Semitic to the bone. This is NOT contradictory. I will stand for no racial hatred. That’s why I oppose anti-Semitism… that’s why I oppose Zionism… that’s why I oppose the US Republican Party with its support of Southern white bigots… that’s why I oppose Galician Uniate integral nationalism with its cries of “Knife the Moskals (Russians)!” and “The Ukraine for Ukrainians Only!” It’s all the same to me. They’re all haters and they’re all evil. FULL STOP.

Vandals Spray Hate Graffiti on Jerusalem Church

00 Monastery of the Holy Cross. Jerusalem. 16.12.12

______________________________

Vandals spray-painted “Death to Christianity” and “Jesus, son of a whore” on a Greek Orthodox monastery in Jerusalem. The overnight attack on the Monastery of the Cross was the latest in a series of vandalisms of Christian holy sites. Extremist Jews sympathetic to Israel’s settlement movement are suspected. On Wednesday, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that the vandals also sprayed “price tag” on the monastery’s outer wall… a form of retribution settlers and their sympathisers use in retaliation for acts they consider pro-Palestinian. Extremists carried out similar “price tag” attacks on other churches, mosques, and Israeli military bases. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the defacing of the church. Israel has 155,000 Christian citizens, less than 2 percent of its nearly 8 million people {according to friends who know the region that’s an undercount… they say that the actual figure is closer to 400,000 (5 percent of the population), mostly concentrated amongst immigrants from the former Soviet Union: editor}.

UN Upgrades Palestinian Status to Non-Member Observer State

______________________________

On Thursday, the UN General Assembly recognised the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a non-member observer state. 138 UN members approved the Palestinian bid, submitted by President Mahmoud Abbas, nine voted against it, and 41 abstained from voting. The move amounts to an implicit recognition of Palestinian statehood and increases the PA’s chances of joining other UN bodies. It also allows the Palestinian Authority to challenge the continuing construction of Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land in the International Criminal Court. Before the historic vote, Abbas urged the General Assembly “to issue the birth certificate of Palestine”. He also reiterated that Palestinians would continue their efforts to achieve fully-recognised statehood.

Abbas submitted Palestine’s official application for recognition as an independent state in the UN in September 2011. An American veto in the Security Council blocked that bid. Thousands of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip greeted the Thursday vote with great jubilation, as it formally gives them global recognition. Now, the PA, which earlier had “permanent observer” status at the UN, joins the Vatican as the only other entity with non-member observer state status.

Exactly 65 years ago, on 29 November 1947, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution calling for Palestine to be partitioned between Arabs and Jews, allowing for the formation of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948. The Palestinians rejected that partition plan, and decades of tension and violence followed. The Palestinians demand the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem, the territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Six Day War, as a precondition for peace talks with Tel Aviv.

Editor’s Note:

This is a good step. The Church supports the Palestinians… not the violent Zionists and their American sugar-daddies. If it wasn’t for American support, Israel would be forced to have serious peace talks with the Palestinians. As more than one Arab has told me, “So-called ‘terrorism’ will end when the USA ends its support of Zionist terrorism“. Amen.

However, to be clear… I oppose Zionism and all its works… I also oppose anti-Semitism and all its works. That’s part and parcel of a unified world view… to be against anti-Semitism, but to support Zionism, is a logical impossibility. Zionism is racism… anti-Semitism is racism… both are evil and all decent people must fight both.

25 November 2012. Archbishop Theodosios Hanna of Sebastia on the Zionist Aggression in Palestine

Shhh!!! Denouncing Israel‘s War Crimes is Anti-Semitism

A Cabinet member sent me this (no URL available):

I’m very sorry to hear about some religious groups in the USA that support the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. Such support can’t be justified from a Christian point of view; as Christianity is against any sort of occupation and injustice in it all forms and rationalisation. These groups need to re-read their Bible, because the Bible calls us to stand with the marginalised and the oppressed and not with the oppressors. Those who use the Bible to support Israel need to differentiate between God’s promise and Balfour’s promise (Balfour Declaration), because the occupation is the result of a promise given to the Israelis by Lord Balfour, not by God.

Archbishop Theodosios Hanna of Sebastia

Orthodox Christians should be aware that Willard Romney was a violent and rabid supporter of the Zionist aggressors in Palestine. He was far worse than President Obama ever was. The Republican Party has bought into the fantasies of the “Rapture Right”; in consequence, no Orthodox Christian can vote for them in good conscience. Many of the konvertsy have “drunk the Kool-Aid”… do remember what Satan does. He baits his traps with seemingly-good things, and inattentive fools fall for them.

No Christian can vote for torture at black sites, constant warfare in foreign parts, the continued redistribution of income to the Affluent Effluent, and the demonisation of the weakest amongst us. When placed in the balance with that, one can see that the so-called Pro-Life Movement is nothing but a chimera… it allows people to think that they’re moral, but they’re really in favour of amorality. Yes… we should aid unwed mothers… yes… we should aid large families… yes… the state has responsibilities in redistributing income in such a way that families benefit. That’s why no decent person can vote for the present GOP. You see, the Republican drive to rip apart the social safety net would increase misery and increase suffering… and no decent person can vote for that.

“He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”, or, “Greed is good”… the choice is yours. Oh, yes… the GOP stands for the latter.
