Just a reminder. I had to give this historical clip its own post. Say no more.

I would like to offer my commiserations to the Jewish people who suffered during WW2. It seems like an opportune moment to offer my sympathy and solidarity to the Jewish people especially as the nations are commemorating the liberation of the labor camp Auschwitz (by Russia). Many Jews were dispossessed of their property and many died from starvation and disease. Official Red Cross numbers put the total of dead in all camps at 270K- the vast majority of those died from typhus outbreaks towards the end of the war due to a lack of foodstuffs reaching the camps because of Allied bombing of German rail hubs. These numbers were published by Poland probably because the survivors are seeking reparations from them. For that I am truly sorry (I sincerely mean that). We are just glad that it was not really six million because that would be unthinkable; we would hate to see suffering on such an industrial scale. We are glad that population numbers rebounded so quickly.We know that you got confused with a Talmudic prophecy that predicted that 6 million had to die before you could return to the land. You probably got mixed up because you had a holocaust from 1915-1938 which was widely reported in the news papers (New York Times July 20th, 1921: "6 Million Jews Face Extermination By Massacre" @14:55) and then you had a second holocaust during WW2. That is probably the cause of your confusion. We are glad that you will take the opportunity of the commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz to set the record straight. And we are glad that you have not carried your victimization trope over to the interpretation of the Torah, by making Isaiah 53 refer to the holocaust. You realized that it would be wrong to take a prophecy about the messiah and apply it to the holocaust. As Jews you know that God does not approve the misuse of his word.
NOTE: The First World War was popularly called the “War of the Three Cousins” (Kaiser, King of Great Britain and the Russian Emperor). Two world wars were conceived back in 1850 ... 1860 by a group of European and English bankers. The goal of the First World War was to destroy empires in Europe and the removal of wealthy ruling families from power (this was possible, the Russian German branch was physically destroyed). The Second World War was needed to consolidate the power of bankers, dismember Europe and incite mutual hatred of Europeans to each other (German National Socialists were a tool in the hands of bankers Warburg, the Bolshevik - Communists were a tool in the hands of the same bankers - Jacob Schiff (died in 1920 year if I'm not mistaken) and other ghouls from Wall Street). Divide and Conquer, the Cold War was a continuation of the policy of bankers.
Not least we would like to thank you for extending forgiveness to us for our sins. You could have held it against us in perpetuity, you could have manipulated us and made us pay forever. Instead you chose the higher path. Your graciousness in acknowledging the sacrifice of the 60 million people who died during the war, of which approximately 27 million inhabitants of the European part of Russia in order to liberate Europe (liberate you). We understand that you had no role to play in any of this but simply got swept along and victimized as innocent bystanders. Like a man who walks into a bar and every bar he enters erupts in a fight. Someone always punches him in the face for no reason and he gets thrown out. Those bar tenders are a strange lot. We know and are deeply ashamed of our behavior. We repent in dust and ashes. We know how deeply you feel for the fate of the Germans at the end of the Second World War and we know that you vociferously denounced Bolshevism which was the greatest human slaughter of all time. "The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators." (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), Nobel-Prize-winning novelist, historian and critic of Communist totalitarianism)
We would also like to apologize for the fact that neither Eisenhower, Churchill, nor de Gaulle mention the death camps in their history of the war. Such a glaring omission is scandalous. If they were still alive they would be prosecuted and jailed for denial. "Three of the best known works on the Second World War are General Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe (New York: Doubleday [Country Life Press], 1948), Winston Churchill's The Second World War (London: Cassell, 6 vols., 1948-1954), and the Mémoires de guerre of General de Gaulle (Paris: Plon, 3 vols., 1954-1959). In these three works not the least mention of Nazi gas chambers is to be found. Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; the six volumes of Churchill's Second World War total 4,448 pages; and de Gaulle's three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages. In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi "gas chambers," a "genocide" of the Jews, or of "six million" Jewish victims of the war."
Will you accept on behalf of all the stupid goyim (your obedient servants) our sincerest apologies? Can you now tell us the truth about 9/11? Will you raise a memorial to the 3 million Muslims killed in the Middle East? By the way, who is behind the establishment of the Federal Reserve? Who runs the CB's media etc? The truth? I thought not....I should not have asked....shame on me.
You don't even know what that means do you? And neither does your Rabbi.
If you want to know read the Introduction on page 1-2
Who ever thought I would quote Joseph Goebbels on propaganda?
"A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth".
"The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over".
"If you tell a lie, tell a big one".
"If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself."
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
TRUTH IS THE MORTAL ENEMY OF THE LIE
Keep telling them the truth and calling them out for the liars that they are.....all liars will end up in the lake of fire.
Political definition: relating to the government or public affairs of a country.
It is sometimes stated that Christians should not get involved in politics or that certain things are too “political” and therefore they are “taboo”. Perhaps I should make my position clear on those things. As a Christian I do not vote and have never voted a political party into power. Why should I vote? I am already the citizen of a different country, a country whose builder and maker is God (Heb 11.10). It is to him that I have given my allegiance and to no one else. And I already have my passport (baptism) and my ticket (agape). As a younger man I refused military conscription (the draft) and had to undergo a “psychological assessment” (which declared me as probably functioning normally- LOL ) and I was assigned alternative work. I will not fight wars for any nation state, nor will I vote politicians into power who will do things that I disagree with (but am nevertheless responsible for because I voted them into power). So, my position is clear. As a Christian I am required to pay my taxes and obey the law (if it does not contradict serving God) but I am not required to vote or kill people for the state.
However, this does not mean that as Christians we cannot be critical of politicians, political processes or political decisions. In fact, it is our duty to be critical of malfeasance, warmongering, lying etc and it is even our duty to offer support to those who are critical. There are many questions that have been “politicized” for example the fraught question on abortion. Should we remain silent on these and other social issues because it is “political”. How about an increasingly corrupt banking system? Should we remain silent on the issue? Or starting a new war in the Middle East? Should we support those who speak out or remain silent? Should we sign a petition demanding a system that operates more honestly? Or should we remain silent? Evil thrives when good men (and women) stay silent.
Everything that John the Baptist and Jesus did had a “political” dimension, or do you not think that when John the Baptist criticized Herod that was not a political act? Do you not think when Jesus overturned the money changers tables that was not a political act? Challenging the bankers and the moneychangers is always a political act. Everything is a political act and staying silent is also a political act because it is interpreted as acquiescence. I chose to be like my Lord and speak truth to power.
“Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered,
Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause
came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.
Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?
And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews,
and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all”.
Strangely enough those who say that they are not political are often the most political. They justify their intellectual support and demonization of certain countries or unreserved support of certain other countries because of their interpretation of prophecy. They swallow government propaganda because it supports their prophetic worldview. Although they do not vote they are therefore also acting politically (even if they are not consciously aware of it).
So, yes, I am being “political”, I will continue to overthrow the tables of the money power, continue to speak out against oppression, malfeasance, corruption, warmongering and propaganda. The time for being a “silent” Christian has long gone.
