Ron Paul Warns of Dark Age

Re: Ron Paul Warns Of “Dark Ages” On Glenn Beck Radio Show [Audio]

We could move into a dark age if we don't wake up to what is really happening.

The treacherous globalists and criminal banksters are forging ahead with their nefarious plans for a dark age, disguising their NWO as an angel of light, as something that offers salvation and will deliver us from all evil - while holding all nations captive.

France to be under German domination

France pushes for more military integration
EU Defence ministers, led by France, will meet informally to discuss how to address "shortfalls" in Europe's military capacity. In moves described by the EUobserver as a "litmus test" for Europe's "security ambitions" France is testing the waters with a view to longer term plans to create two rapid reaction units and two larger reconstruction missions, seen as an attempt to challenge Anglo-American domination of Nato.

The French poodle will soon be Germany's lapdog as American domination of NATO will be replaced with German domination of NATO - or NATO will be scrapped entirely under a new defense arrangement that finds European armies under German command. http://www.davidbenariel.org/

Europe is mad. Not one word in defense of our White Israelite brethren (those of British or NW European origin) who continue to be targeted for being white for being robbed, raped and murdered. Yet the whole world was very race conscious when the whole country enjoyed White Rule. If Europe had any sense, they would spend their money to restore Rhodesia and refuse to fund any more black failures or national experiments, as the White Man is burdened enough. It's past time to restore peace and prosperity and sanity.

Observant Jews, Christians, and biblical festivals

Re: Jews must make tough choice between work, school and religion

If you're an observant Jew, there are seven religious holidays in the next month that you will have to take off from work or school.

And if you're an observant Christian, a Sabbath-keeping Church of God member (who keeps the biblical Sabbath, festivals and dietary laws like Yeshua and the early Church of God), you take off the biblical days the Bible commands us to (without the additional days Judaism - for its traditional reasons - has tacked on).

If our Jewish brethren find it so difficult to love and obey God in their self- imposed exile, at least they can always opt to follow Judaism to the Jewish homeland where such holy days, the biblical festivals, are recognized and kept. Furthermore, the Holy Land of Israel is the ideal location to celebrate before the LORD!

David Bedein,
Israel Resource News Agency,
Beit Agron Press Center,
Jerusalem, Israel

This link to a color coded map depicts the second withdrawal map that was approved by the government of Israel on February 20, 2005, as the second scheduled Israeli withdrawal, following the pullback and expulsions of the Katif Jewish communities from Gaza which occurred during the summer of 2005.

U.S. President George W. Bush and U.S. Secretary Condoleeza Rice, in their last months in power, have placed their prestige on the land and demanded that Israel implement this withdrawal, to make way for a sovereign Palestinian nation state.

The question asked in this Jewish New Year is whether Israel will implement this map.

However, the condition for any withdrawal, according to Israeli law, is that no area can be handed over for the use of terrorists, which is precisely what happened in Gaza.

The government of Israel, in its June 6th, 2004 ratification the Disengagement Law, enacted the provision which forbids the government of Israel from handing over any confiscated Jewish assets to terrorists.

That provision, in clause seven, declared that Israel will transfer "facilities, including industrial, commercial and agricultural ones, to a third, international party which will put them to use for the benefit of the Palestinian population that is not involved in terror . . ".

Despite that Israeli government decision, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon defied the law of his own government and transferred confiscated Jewish assets to the World Bank, and then to the Palestinians, in an arrangement that eliminated the words, "not involved in terror."

Indeed, in the 23 June 2004 monograph signed by then-World Bank president James Wolfensohn and presented to Israel and the PLO entitled "Disengagement, Palestinian Economy and the Settlements," all confiscated settlement assets were to be transferred to the Palestinian Authority, without any prerequisite that those who receive the assets have not been involved in terrorism.

The words, "not involved in terror", simply did not appear.

On August 14th, 2005, the day before Israel's withdrawal was about to commence, an investigation conducted by the Jerusalem Post indicated that the Palestinian Authority had invited armed terror militias from Lebanon to take up position in the abandoned settlements that Israel is about to cede.

Indeed, over the past three years. the Palestinian regime in Gaza used these newly acquired strategic assets to mount a new war of missile terror attacks against southern Israel.

All this, despite the fact that no Israeli government decision was ever taken to hand over confiscated assets of Jews to their murderers.

Precisely the opposite was the case.

The policy of the government of Israel to hand over vital assets to terrorists represented a gross violation of a policy decision taken by the democratically elected government of Israel.

Now the Israeli government seems intend to repeat that violation, and to sell it to the world as the implementation of a policy that was enacted by a democratically elected government of Israel.

The implementation of this map would mean that Israel will expel the 80,000 Jews from their homes in Hebron, Tekoa, Nokdim, Ofra, Beit El, the entire Jordan Valley and more, while placing the Ben Gurion Airport, Jerusalem and, the entire Tel Aviv/Netanya region will be within rocket range of strategically placed missiles.

Yet the Bush Administration, in its waning days, has informed the Israeli government that it expects Israel to implement the second stage by the end of the calendar year.

How Israel will cope with this Bush directive remains the challenge of the Jewish new year, which commences this week.


Would we want to elect somebody named Hitler? Stalin? Who would have ever thought somebody with a name like Obama would get this far after 9/11 - sounding so much like OSAMA?

As I've written, even IF Senator Obama were qualified to be president, which he clearly is not, Barack Hussein Obama is not one from our White Israelite brethren that Scripture calls for in electing our leaders:

Deuteronomy 17 15
...you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses; one from among your brethren you shall set as king over you; you may not set a foreigner over you, who is not your brother.

These are my beliefs, regardless of whether or not others are willing to understand or approve.Isn't it strange folks don't care that many blacks are now jumping on the Obamination bandwagon, they understand it when blacks vote for blacks, but when a white person dares to state they will only vote for a fellow white person, one of our brothers or sisters, behold the hypocritical hue and cry!!!

I wouldn't vote for Obamination for many reasons, his being a Gentile is only part of many factors I consider. Obamination would wage war against the preborn and want the government (working people taxed to death) to pay for "poor people" to have abortions (code word for blacks).

Burning Down The House: What Caused Our Economic Crisis?

I watched the video and could again see that the BIG LIE that is Obama, who pretends to feel the pain of the little people, continues to hobnob with the rich and famous, the limousine liberals, the Afro-centric racists: Obama lives in an ebony tower with his hateful wife, Michelle (who despises white people but stays put in the United States rather than return to Africa where she belongs, just like all the other hypocrites in Jeremiah Wright's dark haven of hatred, a black hole) - out of touch, out of reach - like Nimrod.

Barack Hussein Obama is just another CFR tool, a bought and paid for prostitute, who offers a change that he doesn't believe in (as he knows better) since Obama is part of the problem (definitely not the solution), as documented, but hopes to continue to mislead the mesmerized, having learned how to talk to white people and play them for fools and use and abuse his black brethren as useful idiots.

John McCain also offers nothing new, as Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same CFR coin, globalist puppets, treacherous tools, but Chuck Baldwin for president of the United States would restore this Republic (it's not a democracy!) by upholding and enforcing the Constitution as legitimate servants of "We The People" know and understand they're entrusted to do.

American taxpayers to bail out foreign banks

Re: Germany Calling

Any foreigners who try to shove their hands into the pockets of U.S. taxpayers should have their hands cut off.

"Now, taxpayers are being asked to provide $700 billion to Wall Street. (I hope readers are aware that, not only will American banks be bailed out, but foreign banks will also be bailed out. Then again, at least half of the Federal Reserve is comprised of foreign banks, anyway.)"

I have supported George W.

My record is public. Why bother lying about it? I have been consistent and persistent and will continue, by the grace of God, to be. God knows I do what I can to help avert disaster in the Middle East and throughout the world, calling for repentance and explaining cause and effect (2 Chron. 7:14, Malachi 4:4, Dan. 9:11).

bragged about his trips to Israel

You must really feel insecure and don't get out often and have yet to cross the street without holding your mother's hand to express such jealousy. I have never bragged about my pilgrimages to Israel, but have thanked God for the opportunities to visit the ancient homeland of British-Israelites and Jews.

and how he was able to get Zionists to finance and endorse his hate mongering books for publication.

Would to God Jewish Zionists, Christian Zionists, and other men and women of goodwill would support the plain truth of the Bible and history I dare to share, but relatively few have so far. Those of us who love the truth do hate error and do hate the efforts of those who would keep folks in the dark. However, our hatred is a holy hatred, as it is written: "You who love the LORD, hate evil!" (Psalm 97:10).

"I want to tell you something very clear. Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America and the Americans know it."- Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, October 2001

That would be in reference to those treacherous globalist Jews who work for their German-Jesuit masters in forging a New World Order - not good Zionist Jews who love God, Israel and Torah; those vile and apostate Jews hate Torah-observant Jews and Christian Zionists. Go educate yourself and learn the difference.

The Zionist Brainwashing of America

Sounds like you've been brainwashed to believe the treacherous globalist Jews have God-like powers. They do have undue influence but they are mere mortals and will soon be forcibly reminded by Yeshua - the King of the Jews, Israel's King - that they are but men and their NWO Tower of Babel is destined to be destroyed with them. Now you've heard and read the GOOD NEWS of the Kingdom of God - the gospel of the Kingdom of God-Beings that appears from Heaven that will save mankind from the globalist and apostate Jews, Israelites and Gentiles' counterfeit kingdom of God (lurking in the dark heart of Europe - Germany - waiting for the word to be launched, a blast from the past, a final blitzkrieg that will bewilder the world).

Dead Jew on a stick?

Re: Patriotism and exceptionalism

“So said the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer the Lord of Hosts, “I am first and I am last, and besides Me there is no God.” (Isaiah 44:6)

Yes, the One revealed to Israel could not be compared to the idols of the nations, but the Kingdom-Family of God is revealed in the plural name of Elohim for those with eyes to see, who have taken off their traditional veil.

Your dead Jew on a stick was a non-starter.

You sound awful hateful and anti-Semitic. You sure you’re not a wannabe Roman soldier?

Furthermore, I’m not a Roman Catholic with their idolatrous crucifixes or a Protestant with their idolatrous pictures, images of what some imagine “Jesus” must have looked like . I know my Redeemer lives. He is not a dead Jew on a pole, like Moses saw and foreshadowed with the serpent on the stake that folks had to look up to in order to be healed.

Retention of Jewish names is one of the reasons given for Israel having been deservant of redemption from Egypt

I’ve read that before, but to be more accurate (something you’ve failed time and again historically and biblically), their names were Hebrew - not “Jewish.” When will you ever learn?

Re: Obama Derided “Race Mixing” in “Dreams From My Father”

Race matters whether folks want to acknowledge it or remain in denial, until it’s too late.

God bless us all to live within the designated borders of diverse nations our Great Creator has decreed for us, all revolving around the Twelve Tribes of Israel whom God alone has called to ultimately become His Servant Nation, a light to all nations, a truly United Kingdom, One Nation Under God.

Deuteronomy 32:88
When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, When He separated the sons of Adam [even though we're all family],He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the children of Israel.

Acts 17:2626
And [although] He [God] has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth [we're all human]… [yet He] has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings…

FATHER GOD KNOWS BEST, don’t you agree?

Al Sharpton is a race hustler like Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright, like Barack Obama, are hypocrites who claim to be Afro-centric but fail to return to Africa where they belong, extorting an imposed “white guilt” while complaining about how bad they have it here.

They are representative of the curse these white Israelite “Lands of the Covenant” (Artzot Habrit - Menashe ben Yosef) suffer from due to our idolatry and immorality (Daniel 9:11).

When “We The People” (Am Yisrael) get back in our place with God, they’ll be put back into their place, just like the Arabs in Israel, the blacks in Southern Africa, etc.

“What I would most desire would be the separation of the white and black races.”
— Spoken at Springfield, Illinois on July 17th, 1858; from ABRAHAM LINCOLN: COMPLETE WORKS, 1894, Vol. 1, page 273

“See our present condition—the country engaged in war! Our White men cutting one another’s throats! And then consider what we know to be the truth. But for your race among us there could not be war, although many men engaged on either side do not care for you one way or another.

“Why should the people of your race be colonized, and where? Why should they leave this country? This is, perhaps, the first question for proper consideration. You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this be admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated. It is better for both, therefore, to be separated.”

— Spoken at the White House to a group of black community leaders, August 14th, 1862, from COLLECTED WORKS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Vol 5, page 371

Civil Rights Bowel Movement

Re: Obama Derided “Race Mixing” in “Dreams From My Father”

The United States has suffered severely due to the self-righteous “civil rights” bowel movement led by godless, liberal Jews with their accursed secular messianic drive. It’s one thing to correct a few wrongs, but another to throw the baby out with the bathwater! There goes the neighborhood, there goes the nation! Truly, race matters

It was good and biblical to have laws on our American books for segregation and against race-mixing, as such ethnic adultery is unnatural and amounts to genocide against each race involved, dishonors the heritage, the mothers and fathers who preceded such interracial sin, and causes confusion, destroying our God-given differences rather than celebrating diversity and maintaining it.

Stable Jews and Christian Zionists


I just took a look at your home page. You have an interesting story. You have certainly invested a great deal of your life in the well-being of Israel and of the Jewish people. I’m glad you have friends in Jewusalem — something it doesn’t surprize me that you have, since you have very much become one of their countrymen. I wouldn’t be too dismayed by the comments here on Israpundit, since you probably know better than I that they represent fringe groups within Judaism.

Thank you for your kind comments. Thankfully I’m secure enough in my knowledge of Jews, Israel and Judaism, having truly Torah-observant Israeli friends and secular Jewish friends (who don’t feel threatened by me in any manner, shape or form, knowing better than to get caught up in some hysteria to compensate for some serious deficiencies in their life) that I recognize stable Jews and proper Christian Zionists like Orde Wingate and me (not necessarily every person who professes to be a Christian Zionist) can work together for good, and maturely agree to disagree where we must.

Jerusalem, Israel
HaRav Yehuda Kreuser SHLIT"A, Rosh Yeshiva
27 Elul 5768/26-27 September 2008

So many of us for so long have been sitting around waiting for that one sign to come and tell us that the time has arrived. So many of us for so long have been waiting, that we have long forgotten what we are waiting for. Is it for that comforting voice of the pilot telling us: Shalom and welcome to El Al flight 001 this is Captain Menachem Ben David and I'm taking you home. Are we waiting for the phone to ring its last ring and tell us: Hi, this is Shiloh Ben David, your travel agent. I've just booked you on Continental Flight 20. But whatever it is that we are waiting for, one thing is certain: We are doing just that - waiting and waiting and waiting. This though, is nothing new for the Jew.

In this week's parsha we are told: Then Hashem, your G-d will return your captivity and have mercy upon you, and He will gather you in from all the peoples to where Hashem, your G-d has scattered you. What exciting news, here the Torah is telling us that when the time comes for Redemption, Hashem Himself will come and gather His people homeward. Sounds great, but how is this to come about?

Rashi comments that so great is the day of the ingathering of the exiles, it will come about with much difficulty, as if He Himself (G-d) must actually hold each and every Jew with His hands to take him from his place in the exile in order to return him to his Land. But why should this be so? Surely, the Jew in exile - out of his Land - was waiting impatiently to return to his Land, and at the first opportunity, when the sign would come he would joyfully return. For what normal person would want to live outside of his own Land, what normal people would not want to be redeemed? But this is exactly what Rashi is teaching us, that when the day arrives, the Jew has to be literally pulled by his teeth to come home.

So we find with the exiles of Egypt, that when the call came in to leave, the great majority of the Jewish people in old Egypt wanted to stay. Many reason were given for not wanting to leave: Who is Moshe that he should be the one to take us out, he himself was raised in Pharaoh's palace, I'm waiting for the real savior to come. Things are good now in Egypt, I'm just waiting for the price of my home to go back up before baking matzot and heading out - and the list went on and on and on.

Things did not change much for the Jew in the time of the returnees from Babylon. The book of Ezra teaches us: Hashem aroused the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, and he issued a proclamation throughout his kingdom - and in writing as well, saying: Thus said Cyrus king of Persia, all the kingdoms of the earth has Hashem G-d of Heaven given me, and He has commanded me to build Him a Temple in Jerusalem. Whoever is among you of His entire people - may his G-d be with him - let him go up to Jerusalem. But if this sign was not enough for the people to flock home, for surely, many said to themselves: Who is Cyrus - a non Jew- that we should listen to him and head home? Hashem Himself told His prophet Isaiah that Cyrus is G-d's anointed
one and called him His shepherd, someone "who fulfills all My desires" (Isaiah 44:28).

Still. . . this was not enough for those who wait, and they needed a clearer sign then the prophet himself. So they continued to wait and wait and only some 20 percent of the Jewish people returned from the Babylonian exile. And the ones who waited -the Rabbis, the business owners, the high society people - what became of them? If they did not make their way up to the Land of Israel, then they all, after a few generations, assimilated and were lost to the Jewish people forever.

Will today's Redemption - the one we are in the midst of - be any different than the previous ones for the "waiters"? The Radak, just one of tens of rabbis who wrote in this light throughout the generations, writes: "Just as the redemption from Babylonia was done by the hands of Cyrus, also in the future the Redemption will come about through the nations of the world" (Psalms 146:3).

So the "waiters" continue to wait until that phone rings, understanding not that the call has already been placed and the boat has left shore. Let us not wait until the secure "walls" of this world tumble down, but let us listen to the call that had gone out some time ago and head on home now while time allows, for in the dead of night, when all is silent, one can indeed hear that the phone is ringing!

With love of Israel,

Yesterday, Wednesday, September 24, 2008, tens of members of Women in Green went on a chizuk trip to the outposts in the Shomron and to Yitzhar.

Meeting today's Jewish heroes living in Samaria gave us all strength and even more determination to continue the struggle for the Land of Israel.

First we visited Halfon's factory for prefab houses. Halfon is a dear Jew active for the Land of Israel for the past 40 years. After visiting his factory located close to Karnei Shomron, we went to Shavei Shomron to see a house Halfon built.

Halfon developed a technique to build homes fast and relatively cheap to enable young couples to move to Judea and Samaria at a time when the Israeli government does not allow any Jewish building and expansion. (Arabs, on the other hand, build as much as they want, with the help of the European Union and other countries like Japan).

We urge you to click below on the link to Gemma Blech's pictures of our trip yesterday to enjoy the photos of our trip in general and of Halfon's sample house in particular.

Afterwards we went to Chavot Yair. Chavot Yair is a so-called "outpost" next to Yakir. Twenty families live in the community of Chavot Yair which is located in the most breath taking areas of Israel, in between the mountains of Samaria.

Famous Attorney Doron Nir Zvi lives in Chavot Yair with his wife Tamar. In response to the expulsion from Gush Katif, Doron and Tamar have built a beautiful coffee house in Havot Yair called "Hatzrif shel Tamari" . The coffee shop is open on Thursday evenings and Friday mornings. If you want to be imbued with renewed strength, you must come to Chavot Yair!

Attn Doron Nir Zvi was in the news not so long ago when the Civil Administration came to destroy the swimming pool he had built in Chavot Yair. Not deterred by the authorities, Doron rebuilt his pool within days with a very clear message: this land belongs to the Jewish people. We will live here, build here and even enjoy life like our brothers in Tel Aviv and Savyon, building swimming pools and coffee shops!

Women in Green brought a box full of toys for the children of Chavot Yair and continued on to Yitzhar.

In Yitzhar we went straight to the neighborhood of Shalhevet-Ya, where the Arab terrorist entered two Shabbatot ago, burnt down a house and stabbed a child. We were welcomed by Revital Ofan who, calmly, told us the entire story of the Arab attack on their homes. From the area of Yitzhar, located high up in the Samaria hills, we could clearly see Tel Aviv and Herzliya, within katyusha range. Anyone visiting Yitzhar understands what, G-d forbid, would happen to Tel Aviv and Herzliya if instead of Jews, the PLO-Hamas regime would be controlling those hills.

In Yitzhar we also met the sister of Tuvia, the nine year old boy who bravely fought the Arab terrorist. We gave her a book to give Tuvia. The book is Arieh Yitzhaki's book on the history of Kfar Darom (see below for more details) which is a book on Jewish heroism. We wrote in it:"To dear Tuvia, a book on Jewish pride and heroism to a modern day Jewish hero as yourself".

After Yitzhar we drove back to Jerusalem but before heading home we had one more stop: we drove to the Hawara checkpoint to strengthen our soldiers. The Hawara checkpoint is the IDf checkpoint at the entrance to Shchem (Nablus). Thousands of Arabs enter and exit that checkpoint and the IDF must check all of them thoroughly for otherwise terrorists would be able to go to Natanya and Gush Dan and blow themselves up there. Thus, the Hawara checkpoint is the place where the IDF makes sure Gush Dan is safe.

Unfortunately, the extreme left traitorous Israeli members of Machsom Watch come to Hawara daily to harass our soldiers and collaborate with the Arabs. A few days ago an Arab terrorist woman took advantage of the "humanitarian" lane at Hawara and threw acid in the face of one of our soldiers. The soldier lost his eye.

Women in Green felt it to be very important to come and strengthen the soldiers there. We arrived at the checkpoint, got off the bus and surrounded our IDF soldiers with love, cakes, singing and praises. Using our bullhorn we strengthened the soldiers telling them that the People of Israel thank them for their hard work and wish them a happy New Year. We told them how much we appreciate them for doing exactly what they have to do: that is to fight the Arab enemy. We also added that we hope, pray and expect that they would always only deal with securing the Jewish People in the Land of Israel and never have to deal with expelling Jews.

The soldiers were very moved and thanked us .Thus ended a long uplifting day. As usual we came to strengthen but thank G-d, we came back strengthened.Here is the link to Gemma Blech's pictures-please give credit if used.


Lastly, below is a summary by Gemma Blech of Arieh Yitzhaki's book "222-The days of Kfar Darom 1948".

Women in Green strongly recommend to buy the book. It is a great present for Bar/Bat Mitzva- birthdays-holidays and in addition it helps our dear friends Arik and Datya Yitzhaki, expelled three years ago from kfar Yam in Gush Katif, temporarily living in Efrat until we, please G-d, will return to Gush Katif and rebuild the flourishing communities there.

With Love for Israel,
Nadia Matar - Anita Finkelstein
Women in Green
The book, 222-The Days of Kfar Darom 1948, first published in Hebrew about a year ago, is now [in excellently translated] English. It tells the almost unknown story of a handful of Jews who stood against Arab terror, and outright Egyptian war, before and after the birth of Israel as a nation. Many of us know of the far briefer battles for Yad Mordechai, Kfar Etzion, etc, but only now has the full story of Kfar Darom been told. The author, Aryeh Itzhaki, is an historian and geographer with a wide range of books, publications and research papers to his credit. Formerly of Gush Katif and now living in Efrat, Itzhaki is an Israeli military historian and a senior lecturer in the field of military history in IDF courses for officers.

His book begins with 'defining supreme valor'. 'The height of bravery', we are told, 'is ongoing bravery. Not a momentary act where a person risks his life for a short while, 'but an act of bravery that stretches out excruciatingly and is measured in weeks or even months.'

The story of those 222 days of bravery in 1947 and 1948 is a book one does not easily put down. Even the details of the military campaigns and the names of people and places, are made simple enough for those who do not know Hebrew or the Israeli landscape.

Aryeh Itzhaki is married to Datia, whose father was one of the fighters for Kfar Darom, and who then became one of the core re-builders of Kfar Darom after the Six-Day war in 1967. The two of them later built and lived in Kfar Yam, another Gush Katif community, and became defenders again in 2005 when this time it was an Israeli government which became the destroyer of Jewish towns, homes and farms in Eretz Israel.

The book costs $20 or 75 NIS in English and 65 NIS in Hebrew ­ including the price of postage within Israel

Or contact Datya at datya@netvision.net.il
The book is very suitable as a birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzva present or indeed for Rosh HaShana and Sukkot etc.

Jews Should Vote For Chuck Baldwin!

Re: Patriotism and exceptionalism

Speaking of patriotism and exceptionalism, something neither Democrats or Republicans honestly represent since they’re both destroying the Constitutional basis of our beloved country, these “lands of the Covenant” of Menashe ben Yosef (Artzot Habrit - Joseph isn’t Jewish), hear presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin explain why everybody who loves the United States and Israel should vote for him:

"I also share Ron Paul’s concerns for the way the two major parties have allowed the United States to become a meddlesome, interventionist, nation-building empire for the sake of satisfying the greedy machinations of international bankers and power-hungry politicians. I will not only bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, but also from most of the other 130 nations that currently house U.S. forces. I will end foreign aid. I will get the U.S. out of NATO. It is past time for the European states to defend themselves. It is time for us to stop sticking our nose in every other nation’s business and start taking care of the United States. The Warfare State will kill us. Global empires are not sustainable. I repeat: global empires are not sustainable. If history teaches anything, it teaches that." - Thank you, Dr. Ron Paul

Comment by David BenAriel — September 25, 2008 @ 10:09 am

David Ben-Ariel formerly David Hoover

God-given Names

I was born David A. Hoover on January 10, 1960 in Bowling Green, Ohio. However, I legally changed my name to David Ben-Ariel (with the help of my Jewish lawyer) during the Spring of 1989. It cost me $300.00.

It also required that I take out a small ad in a newspaper announcing my intentions 30 days beforehand. I placed my ad in the Bowling Green Sentinel.

I also had to appear before a judge (it depends on what county you were born) for him to privately question my motivations. He was assured by my lawyer that I wasn’t running from the law or trying to escape some outstanding debt, but that my reasons were religious in nature. The judge accepted that but wanted to impress upon me that I could have "trouble" with that name in America, without elaborating. I felt he meant because it was Jewish and/or could be difficult for some to know how to pronounce. I told him I wasn’t concerned about it since I planned on moving to Israel anyway.

My reasons for changing my name were religious in nature. Why? Because I honestly feel that Ben-Ariel is a God-given name. And why would I feel that way? Because after a Hebrew class where my teacher mentioned how many people change their names when they move to Israel, I went home wondering what surname I would have in Israel, knowing my first name is already Hebrew.

I had always liked the Hebrew last name of Ben-Ammi, after reading it in Leon Uris’ book Exodus, since it means "son of my people," but while thinking about it and wondering what name my father would’ve given me, if he would’ve given me a Hebrew name, I didn’t know. I then knelt down in prayer and asked God what name, IF ANY, would He give me since He's my Heavenly Father, and I couldn’t ask my dad because he died when I was twelve.

I expected God to perhaps lead or guide or influence me to like a particular name, but immediately ARIEL flashed into my mind and immediately I rejected it. Why? Because it means "the Lion of God" and I felt such a name only belongs to Jesus Christ, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. While wondering about the name of Ariel, I remembered that Israel’s defense minister was Ariel Sharon (whom I’ve since met in Jerusalem and Hebron). I reluctantly decided to keep the name in reserve (since it was really impressed upon me!) until God or circumstances might lead me to accept another, and went to bed.

The Bible mentions MANY INCIDENTS where God chose to change someone’s name or to name them before their birth. It is unusual but it’s not unscriptural. There was Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac (Gen. 17:5, 15, 19); Ishmael (Gen. 16:11); Solomon (I Chron. 22:9) and Solomon’s nickname Jedidiah (2 Sam. 12:25); Cyrus (Isa. 44:28; 45:4); John the Baptist (Lk. 1:13); Jesus (Matt. 1:21); Peter and the two brothers James and John whom Jesus nicknamed "sons of thunder" (Mk. 3:16-17); just to name a few.

God promises to give us each a new and unique name in the Kingdom, either in place of or in addition to our current one (Rev. 2:17), as well as sharing Jesus’ new name and bearing the Father’s name as Priest-Kings (Rev. 3:12, 14; Ex. 28:36; Lev. 8:9). God has many name or titles, descriptive of His wonderful qualities and characteristics (Isa. 9:6). The Jews even teach that God’s Hebrew name Elohim (literally Gods) is plural due to the fact that God is too great to be constrained to one name, and is used in the sense of the royal "We." That’s why Elohim said "let us...." We understand that it’s also because there’s presently two God-Beings in the one Kingdom of God, like Adam and Eve were two separate people who both shared the surname Adam as one family unit (Gen. 2:24; 5:2; Jn. 10:30).

God has His reasons why He would change someone’s name and who are we to question Him? The April 1980 issue of The Good News magazine (published by the Worldwide Church of God) carried an article called "History of the Church" that helps us to understand why Jesus changed Simon’s name to Peter: "...and He gave him a surname prophetic of the moral and spiritual strength he would eventually demonstrate. Jesus bestowed upon him the new name, before he had earned it that it might be an incentive to him to realize what Jesus had expected."

After going to bed, about to fall asleep, Isaiah 29:1 flashed into my mind. What’s amazing is that I had never memorized that Scripture! It reveals that Ariel is a nickname for JERUSALEM!
I now understand why God the Father had chosen Ariel for me. Anyone who knows me knows that Jerusalem is always on my mind (Jer. 51:50), especially after my first visit there to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) in 1980, as mentioned in From Toledo to Jerusalem and Israel Work History (Worldwide Church of God).

God has shown me that He’s stirred me up and given me a burning desire for Jerusalem and Israel (Isa. 62:1, 6-7). I finally realized that God was calling me a "SON OF JERUSALEM."

I got out of bed, got down on my knees with tears in my eyes, and thanked God for truly knowing us inside and out, just like His Word says, and embraced the new name God had given me! I also accepted it as a SPIRITUAL GOAL: to live worthy of one named after holy Jerusalem and all that it ideally represents.

I end my prayers facing Jerusalem every night with "Yerushalayim shel Zahav" (Jerusalem of Gold), a plea for Jerusalem to fulfill its calling (2 Chron. 6:38-39; Dan. 6:10).

Later, I began to understand how Ariel can also refer to Judah and King David. Since my family tree is traced back to the British and Scottish Royal Families (the Royal House of David) it’s also befitting that Ben-Ariel can mean "son of David" and "son of Judah" (whose tribal emblem is the lion).

I’m convinced that the God of the Bible, the God of Israel, and the God of my forefather David, has blessed me with the name of Ariel. Even if I chose Ariel for myself -- which I did not, I originally objected to it -- there wouldn’t be any harm in that since such a practice is Biblical: "One shall say, I am the LORD’S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel" (Isa. 44:5).

God surnamed me Ariel back around 1982, however it wasn’t until 1989 that I finally changed my name legally. I knew that even though God had given me the name that I didn’t necessarily have to change my name. I was also hesitant to do so because I am the only son and the only Hoover males alive (that I’m aware of) were my grandfather and myself. I didn’t want the name to die out, not that I’m married and have any sons anyway (although God assures His spiritual "eunuchs" that we’ll be given excellent and eternal names - Isa. 56:5). I began to see that Hoover was possibly an Anglicized form of the German Huber (since many immigrants changed their names upon arrival in America).

I also didn’t want to hurt or offend my grandfather (Arthur Hoover of Risingsun, Ohio) or possibly get disinherited, but I made up my mind that since I was about to seek citizenship in Israel, starting a new chapter in our family history, I was going to take the lead and change my name. My grandfather ended up dying about four months before the fact, unaware of what I planned to do. So now I’ve been David Ben-Ariel for years and my family and friends are used to it.

My God-given name is ESTABLISHED BEFORE GOD who mentions Jerusalem twice in it: the City of David and Ariel.


"How can one explain the inaction of those rabbis who agree that we can enter the Temple Mount? How can one explain those who distort the truth and prohibit the entrance of Jews to the Temple Mount? After 2,000 years of prayers asking that God return us to Zion and speedily rebuild the Temple, what excuse could there be for preferring the Wall of Tears over the House of God?

The best answer can be found in the book, Ame Banim Smecha, written by Rabbi Yisachar Teichtel. Rabbi Teichtel was a Chasid who lived in Hungary and perished in the holocaust. While on the run from the Nazis, he wrote a powerful book quoting his sources from memory. He confronts the question that haunts many Jews: "why were so many religious Jews and Torah scholars killed during the holocaust?" His answer is unequivocal, the religious Jews and the Torah scholars watched the secular Zionists return to Zion; and they did not learn from their actions. Jews who prayed thrice daily for the return to Zion should have immediately realized that if secular Jews are leaving the exile, how much more so should they. By turning their backs on the Land of Israel, Rabbi Teichtel writes, their fate was sealed. God hates hypocrisy and punishes those who invoke his name in vain. And so they stayed in exile to be consumed by the fires of the Holocaust.

Many religious Jews yet maintain the false interpretation of Jewish texts that the Temple will fall from heaven when God deems it proper. This belief is akin to those who maintained that while sitting in exile there would appear the wings of an eagle, which would scoop them up and whirl them off to the Land of Israel. Obviously, the latter never happened and the former is even less likely to occur. .."

The Issue of the Temple Mount

Assimilated Jews then and now

Naomi Ragen's email today offers this Food for Thought:

"In 1940, we knew who we were, we knew who the enemy was, we knew the dangers and the issues.. It is different today. We don't know who we are. We don't know the issues, and we still do not understand the nature of the enemy."
Bernard Lewis

I strongly disagree. The assimilated German and European Jews forgot who they were so God sent Hitler to forcibly remind them and Jabotinsky to warn them, exposed the American Jewish establishment as cowards and appeasers, punished the hypocrisyof the religious ghetto Jews who failed to follow the secular Zionists to the Promised Land of Israel (seeing it wasn't necessary for a messiah to do for us what we could do for ourselves), preferring a self-imposed exile rather than return and help hasten the process of redemption they prayed for but failed to act upon... I see nothing new under the sun.

For Zion's Sake,

The Holocaust is a Jewish issue?


And what did Kahane say about the non-Jewish world at the time, regardless of
this criticism of particular Jews?

You would do well to focus on what Kahane said about the family (and the rabbis say Jews are deserving of the leaders they get - so Kahane’s tough love, his criticism, wasn’t merely about “particular Jews”), since enough time has been wasted on wringing hands and blaming non-Jews in an attempt to extort guilt and divert attention from the shirked Jewish responsibilities. Enough is enough.

Comment by David BenAriel — September 25, 2008 @ 7:26 am

“David Ben Ariel”, the Holocaust is a Jewish issue

Double-minded Jews! The Holocaust is a Jewish issue, the Holocaust isn’t merely a Jewish issue (visit any of the many Holocaust museums and see how they’ve included every politically correct “persecuted” group), the non-Jews should have done more, the non-Jews didn’t do enough, but it’s a Jewish issue. Oy veh!

and assigning responsibility is left to Jews. Not to you.

When Jews engage in a blood libel against Christians and every non-Jewish European, intelligent folk would expect a backlash, would expect such blanket condemnation would be utterly rejected, and not merely require Christians to hang our heads and suffer an imposed guilt that isn’t justified any more than blaming all Jews for the Jewish Communists and Socialists whose perverted secular messianism resulted in untold deaths, mass murder, of professing Christians in Russia and Eastern Europe and around the world.

Furthermore, how did you fail to notice the blame assigned for the Holocaust that I quoted was from MEIR KAHANE, a Jew, and a reference to another article about Jewish hypocrisy concerning the Holocaust written by another RABBI? I have merely shared and agree with their historical and biblical conclusions. Why does that make you uncomfortable?

Please show some respect on a Jewish site and leave your Christian agenda at the

Christian agenda? How absurd. You haven’t seen any “Christian agenda” on my part, just the plain truth of the Bible and history, but your imagination has run wild if you strangely consider noting the distinction between Jews and Israelites, as recorded in the Law and the Prophets, or making references to Meir Kahane and other rabbis concerning Jewish hypocrisy and the Holocaust as “Christian agenda.” Where’s your respect for reality?

The Biblical Festivals That Reveal Christ's Role in God's Plan
Jesus Christ celebrated seven festivals every year that most Christians today can't even name, yet they have His imprint all over them. He is the reason for each of these seasons, and they have great meaning for anyone who would like to follow Him better. What are these festivals, and what do they reveal about our Savior and King?

Ahmadinejad 'Honored' by Religious Coalition in NY this Week

by Sharon Hughes

On September 23, 2008 speaking to the UN in New York City, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attacked the U.S. again declaring the "American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road." And accused "a few bullying powers" of trying to stop his country's nuclear programs.

Also, as FOX News reported: "With major world leaders watching and just eight hours after President Bush's final speech before the general assembly, Ahmadinejad used the U.N. platform to decry a "zionist regime" for what he called a persecution on Arab peoples around the globe."

And a group has formed, StopAhmadinejadRally, to protest a religious group meeting honoring Ahmadinejad while he is here this week: On Thursday, September 25, at 6:00 pm in New York City at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, The American Friends Service Committee, Mennonite Central Committee, Quaker UN Office, Religions for Peace, and the World Council of Churches-UN Liaison Office will be "honoring" Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at an Iftar (dinner to break the day's Ramadan fast). Other organizations, political leaders and the media have also been invited.

Here's the text of the invitation:

An invitation to an international dialogue between religious leaders and political figures: "Has not one God created us?"

The significance of religious contributions to peace

It is an honor to invite you to participate with religious, cultural, and political leaders in a conversation about the role of religions in tackling global challenges and building peaceful societies at an Iftar - a dinner to break the Ramadan fast.

In the presence of

§ His Excellency Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran

With contributions from

§ His Excellency Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann, President of the General Assembly of the United Nations

§ His Excellency the Rev. Kjell Bondevik, former Prime Minister of Norway and President of the Oslo Center for Peace and Human Rights

§ and distinguished religious leaders

This conversation is the fourth in a series of high-level bridge-building and reconciliation efforts that have helped to build mutual understanding between our peoples, nations and religious traditions. It is our hope that as religious and political leaders, this communal meal and exchange of views will enable us to explore faith perspectives for dealing with global issues such as poverty, war and prejudice while deepening mutual understanding.

The dinner will be at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, 109 East 42nd Street, New York, N.Y., on Thursday, September 25, 2008, beginning with evening prayers from several religious traditions. Please arrive by 6:00 pm to clear security. Following dinner and presentations, the moderator will open the floor for comments and discussion.

Please note, entrance to this event is by limited invitation only. Some members of the media have been invited to cover the event.

RSVP by e-mail to sept25@us.mcc.org no later than Monday, September 15, 2008, confirming you interest in participation and sending us your mailing address. After confirmation of your participation, we will send a card explaining procedures for entry to the event.

The Sponsoring Committee welcomes your participation and appreciates the cooperation of the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations in co-hosting this event.

American Friends Service Committee
Mennonite Central Committee
Quaker United Nations Office
Religions for Peace
World Council of Churches - United Nations Liaison Office

This week while the religious left panders to Ahmadinejad, and the Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama team plays political chess causing Sarah Palin to be disinvited to speak to this group on Ahmadinejad (see full text of the speech she was going to deliver), the rest of us watch (in amazement?) at the complete loss of discernment of those who consider themselves leaders.

Notion of a Palestinian state is delusional

The answer to Mr. Ehud Olmert's totally unfounded and ridiculous statement - that the notion of a greater Israel no longer exists and anyone who still believes in it is deluding himself - is the very opposite, namely this: It is the notion of the idea of a Palestinian state that no longer exists. All those who - after the horrendous failures following the OSLO accords - still believe that establishing such an independent Muslim state 20 miles from Tel Aviv will bring peace are absolutely deluding themselves and their nation. The only way for Israel to have peace is to hold on to these territories.

Peace Now: Arabs and Jews Must Go Their Separate Ways
Genesis 15:18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants [through Isaac] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates: 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."

It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc.

Thoughts on Meir Kahane...
The idea that Jew-hatred was the problem of the Jew-hater and that it was the job of the Jew to "educate" the Jew-hater not to manifest that hatred - expressed in the following Talmudic dictum "he who raises his hand to bless you, bless him first; he who raises his hand to kill you, kill him first" - was truly liberating for me, who had always been taught that "good Jewish boys don't fight".

Christians Reject "Palestine" for the Promised Land of Israel
Satan inspired the Romans to mock God and dishonor our Father by attempting to erase Israel's name off the map! "They have said, 'Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more'" (Psalms 83:4).

Shimon Peres Has No Clothes: Where's the Peace?
Israel has no peace partners, and every one of the Arab groups' charters or covenants call for Israel's destruction. Fatah, Hamas, the PLO -- they're all one and the same except for patience and procedures.

Christian Zionists, Jews, and Israel
I am a Bible-believer, a Christian-Zionist (one who believes the Prophets foretold the restoration of Jews first of all 12 Tribes of Israel to the Promised Land of Israel before the end of this world as we know it). I am not a Protestant or a "Jew for Jesus" and certainly not a member of the Roman Catholic Cult. I am a baptized member of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God...

Don't Expel Jews From Gaza!
Read and weep for the Israeli Jews of Gush Katif/Gaza, on whose behalf I wrote this article in July 2005 before their illegal expulsion by the bribed Ariel Sharon and criminal company working for foreign interests. Many of them remain homeless, depressed and basically abandoned by their lying government -- their former homes history, stripped bare and destroyed by marauding Arab enemies who are now fighting among themselves, one terrorist group (Hamas) against another terrorist group (Fatah).

Israel's Only Way Out: Follow Kahane!
Israel must make concessions, Israel must do this, Israel must do that, while the Arabs continue to get away with mass murder and terrorism (while promising peace and feigning ignorance), aided and abetted by the international community...

A Jewish Homeland
Did God condemn the Jews to wander until Messiah comes but blessed every other tribe of Israel with a national inheritance?Does that make sense? Is God fair? Is Israel so much holier than Judah? Or could it be, as Herbert W. Armstrong taught in The United States and Britain in Prophecy, that Israel's punishment was to last for 2,520 years (Lev. 26:21)?
