John Kerry warns Israel against Apartheid

by: Michael D. Evans
John Kerry warns Israel against ApartheidSecretary of State John Kerry has taken his “dog and pony act” to the world stage. In a meeting of a group of Trilateral Commission senior representatives and specialists from the United States, the European Union, Russia, and Japan, Kerry said that Israel was on the verge of becoming an “apartheid state” if it didn’t give the Palestinians their own nation. What a colossal display of audacity from one who is supposed to be Israel’s ally. Said Kerry:
“A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class citizens—or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state” (
This is outrageous! How dare Mr. Kerry accuse Israel of embracing segregation if it does not capitulate to a terror state? Not only is the Palestinian Authority a terrorist organization and the world’s most infamous, but now it has united with Hamas, an even more evil group.
Hamas is on the international terrorist lists of the US, the EU, the UK and Canada, as well as other countries globally. When Osama bin Laden was killed, Hamas condemned the US action. In January 2011, Hamas enlisted Jaish-al-Islam (Army of Islam), its al-Qaeda affiliate in Egypt to murder twenty-four Coptic Christians. In 2013, Hamas executed sixteen Egyptians and wounded 130 in the Nile Delta.
The Hamas Charter calls for the annihilation of every Jew in the State of Israel. On March 13, 2008, Hamas called for a mahraqa (Holocaust) of the Jews. Its leaders have declared that Allah punished the Jews by means of the Germans, and now it is the turn for Islamic nations to punish them once again. It would not be possible in one article to name the number of suicide bombings that have been launched in Israel by Hamas, i.e., bombings that took place at Dimona, Kerem Shalom, the Eilat bakery, Kedumim, Rosh Ha’ir restaurant, Ha’Sharon mall, Hadera market, Beersheba central bus station, Stage Club, Carmel market, French Hill Junction, and more (
Rather than John Kerry attacking Hamas and the PA over the demonic unification of two terrorist organizations, he attacked Israel. Most of the Middle East Arab states consider themselves Muslim countries. Does Secretary of State Kerry call them apartheid states? No! He reserved that term for Israel. In Saudi Arabia, Christians are not allowed to wear a necklace with a cross or carry a Bible openly. Has he called it an apartheid state?
Six million Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis during World War II. This is Holocaust Remembrance week in which we remember the dead, and Kerry dares to refer to the Jewish state of Israel as an “apartheid state.” Had Israel been a state during World War II, there would have been fewer Holocaust victims.
Arabs living in Israel are afforded more rights than those living in any Islamic state. Israeli Arabs have the right to vote in elections and to hold office. Women have the same rights as men. This “apartheid” slur against Israel because its leaders have sanctioned a wall of protection separating the country and a terror state is insanity. Tell this to the people of Sderot in southern Israel where thousands of rockets have been lobbed at them from Gaza.
Aparthied was a state-sanctioned system of racial discrimination between 1948 and 1994 dominating every aspect of daily life in South Africa. This is not even remotely the case in Israel.
Several years ago, I debated Al Sharpton regarding this very issue on MSNBC’s Hardball. I said to him, “For a moment I would like you to imagine you are the mayor of Harlem. The Ku Klux Klan has just fired thousands of missiles into your city. Hundreds of Black people have been killed and wounded. And, by the way, that the people of Harlem cannot live in any area occupied by the Klan. Now, I would like you to defend the KKK. That’s precisely what you are doing by defending Hamas and the PA.”
It appears that John Kerry needs to study his genealogy. Surely, he is related to British Prime Minister Arthur Neville Chamberlain who served from 1937 to 1940. He conceded the Sudentenland region of Czechoslovakia to Hitler all in the name of appeasement. He sent a signal to the West that it did not have the moral courage to confront evil (
What a pathetic signal Secretary of State John Kerry has just sent to the evildoers of the world—from Putin in Russia, to Kim Jong-un in North Korea, to Ayatollah Khamenei in Iran.

Hamas, Terrorists with an Agenda

by: Michael D. Evans
Hamas Terrorists with an AgendaHamas, the terrorist organization that occupies Gaza, is hard at work trying to convince the US Secretary of State that its name should not be on the list for Foreign Terrorist Organizations. In its attempt, numerous European Union countries have been contacted in an effort to bolster that endeavor. The purpose of Hamas and its leader, Khaled Mashaal, has always been to create an Islamic state in the territory awarded Israel by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.
The fallacy in the proposal is that Hamas leaders have no intention of changing its fundamental policy as stated in its charter: The annihilation of Israel. Like its cousin, the Palestinian Authority, it wants all of the land on which the Jewish people reside. Nor are its chiefs willing to disarm, to stop the flow of tens of thousands of rockets and mortars from Iran into Gaza in order to achieve its goals. In other words, Hamas wants all the perks of removal from the terrorist list without paying the price.
It is incongruous that the ploy by Hamas to shed its terrorist label corresponds with Egyptian reports that the organization is now dabbling in terrorist attacks in that country. Those reports have been refuted, but the suggestion coincides with the infiltration of the Sinai by other terrorist groups—including al-Qaeda.
One Hamas official, Ghazi Hamad, indicated that the pressure to bring about a change of attitude among EU countries has had positive results in both the West and other Arab countries. It appears that on Wednesday, April 24, Hamas and Fatah, at least, buried the hatchet and announced plans for a joint government. US State Department head John Kerry seemed stunned by the announcement. Those who follow terrorist activities in the Middle East know that it would be easier for a leopard to change its spots than for Hamas and Fatah to recognize Israel’s right to exist, and suspend attacks against her. This is confirmed by the near-daily rocket attacks aimed at some area inside Israel.
According to a Washington Post report: Abbas made a revealing choice – rather than choosing peace with a democratic neighbor he decided to align with murderous, terrorist, Jihadist Islamists. Abbas celebrates the release of terrorists and luxuriates in the alliance with them.
Those who believe Mahmoud Abbas is a viable peace partner in negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government are sorely mistaken. Like his predecessor Yasser Arafat, Abbas has had ample opportunities to come to an agreement with his Israeli counterpart—opportunities which had been squandered by his refusal to disarm the terrorist factions within his territory and to recognize Israel’s right to exist.
Several arguments abound as to why the Palestinian Authority continues to reject any and all offers of a Palestinian State as did Yasser Arafat in 2000 and as Mahmoud Abbas has continued to do. Formal statehood would limit the ability of the PLO and Hamas in Gaza to commit acts of terrorism. This was a lesson learned when Gaza achieved pseudo-statehood. It became easier for Israel to retaliate when attacked. For the PA to achieve statehood would be a catastrophic move: It would lose the “victim” status which it has enjoyed for decades, and would lose sizeable donations from US, EU, and Arab backers. Would that those organizations, including the UN and Russia come to understand that the Palestinians do not want a state. It would rob them of the cover they now enjoy when it comes to terroristic acts against the Jewish people in Israel.
The question begs to be asked: How could any right-thinking EU leader, or for that matter the US Secretary of State, believe for a moment that Abbas and Hamas are willing to forgo the Jew-hatred that drives the terrorist organizations?

The Demon of Jew-hatred

by: Michael D. Evans
The Demon of Jew-hatredThe world was shocked when Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk received orders to register, and that any Jew who refused would have their citizenship revoked, be forced to leave the country, and have their property confiscated. The warning leaflets written in Russian were distributed outside a synagogue during Passover. The flyers were addressed to Ukrainian citizens of Jewish nationality.
The one responsible for this heinous ruse is the Prince of the Power of the Air. It is not the first time Jews have been targeted, nor will it be the last. As Christians around the world celebrate Easter and Jews celebrate Passover, I am reminded of the forced registration/taxation of all Jews which was cleverly implemented by Herod. It would provide the information necessary so that he could eventually kill a Jew from the lineage of David—Yeshua ben Jospeh, the Lord our Salvation, or Jesus.
King Herod’s obsession to kill the firstborn because of his demonic fear meant this Child would fulfill prophecies that go all the way back to Mount Moriah where Abraham made a covenant with God over Isaac and where King David chose to build the first Temple. This hatred for the Jews has not diminished, nor has the fiendish virus of anti-Semitism been stamped out.
Over sixty years ago, my mother shook her finger in my face and shouted, “Christians kill Jews; Christians hate Jews. Jesus died. Don’t dig him up. The Pope, Adolf Hitler, and Billy Graham are all Christians.” She said that because she caught me watching a Billy Graham program after Saturday morning cartoons. My mother then told me a horror story about her grandfather, a rabbi. He and his congregation in the Ukraine were burned to death in his synagogue on the Shabbat. She said, “Russian Orthodox Christians boarded up the windows and lit fires while screaming ‘Christ killers’!”
Regretfully, my father, who attended an Assembly of God Church and called himself a born-again Christian, hated Jews. It’s hard to believe he could have married a Jewish woman, but he did. He went to church on Sunday and was called, “Brother Bob,” by the congregation, yet the Jew he hated the most was me. He believed I was the product of an affair between my mother and a Jewish man. From the age of four to the age of eleven, I suffered unspeakable abuse—beaten with extension cords and coat hangers, locked in a canning cellar beneath the house, and ultimately strangled and left for dead—simply because I was a Jew. Over the forty-plus years I’ve defended the nation of Israel and worked with its leaders, there is one thing I clearly recognize: Jews are not killed in Israel over land; they are killed because they are Jewish.
During the time of Jesus, a quarter million Jews were crucified by the Romans for only one reason: They were Jewish. I related this to Mel Gibson when he invited me to a preview of “The Passion of the Christ” after he said Jews were fighting the movie. As I watched the story unfold on the screen, I identified twenty-two scenes in the movie that were not biblical. I recalled the book from which those scenes were selected. At the end of the movie, I said to Mr. Gibson, “There are scenes from your movie that I believe are from the book, The Dolorous Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, by Sister Ann Emmerich. She was anti-Semitic, and believed the Jews strangled Christian children and used their blood to make matzo during the Passover.”
In response to my comments, Mel Gibson said that my observation was correct; it had been taken from the book. He admitted to being a follower of hers. I inquired of him, “At the conclusion of the movie, why not put these words on the screen: During the Roman occupation, a quarter-million Jews were crucified by the Romans, but only one rose from the dead.” He was quite impressed with that recommendation, but would not comply because he is anti-Semitic, and he did want to bait the Jews.
God’s prophetic clock is still on the Jews. It all began with them, and will all end with them according to Psalm 102: 16, “When the Lord shall build up Zion, then shall He appear in His glory.” He is a covenant God and every promise He made to the Jewish people will be kept, as will every promise He has made to those who have been washed in the blood of the Passover Lamb and redeemed.

The Price of Hatred

by: Mike Evans
The Price of HatredFrazier Glenn Miller has been identified as the shooter who apparently set out to murder Jews on Sunday, first at a Jewish Community Center and then at a nearby Jewish retirement community. The shooting spree ended in the deaths of a grandfather, Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, both Christians, and Terri Lamanno, a Catholic visitor to the retirement home.
According to FBI Special Agent Michael Kaste, “In the last 22 hours, we learned the acts this person committed were the result of beliefs that he had and that he was trying to hurt somebody based on their ethnicity, race, and religion.” It is likely that Miller will eventually be charged with a hate crime.
The 73-year old white supremacist founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and served as Grand Dragon in the 1980s before being removed from his post. He later organized another group, the White Patriot Party. Miller was the subject of a manhunt following violation of a bond posted while appealing a conviction in North Carolina for operating a paramilitary site. When arrested, Miller and three compatriots were found in possession of grenades, automatic firearms and numerous rounds of ammunition.
It was not the first time a hate-filled white supremacist had attacked the innocent. As I read the accounts, I was instantly reminded of two other instances of murderous attacks generated by the desire to murder and maim those who disagreed with their particular philosophy.
It has been fifteen years since the horrific events of April 19, 1995. On that day, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols set off a devastating explosion that rocked Oklahoma City’s Murrah Federal Building killing 168 and injuring more than 800. It was the worst domestic terror attack in our nations’ history until that fateful day in September 2001.
Both McVeigh and Nichols were members of The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord (better known as the CSA) organized in Elijah, Arkansas in 1971 by polygamist James Ellison. The CSA was not simply one of the more quirky religious cults; its stated purpose was to start a war that would ultimately lead to the second coming of Christ. The members of the group believed they were literally God’s chosen people, and as such, could dominate all others.
Another CSA member was Richard Wayne Snell. On my birthday in 1984, I was informed by the ATF that I had been targeted by the white supremacist. Snell, too, was a disciple of the CSA. A conference in 1983 had brought together Jim Ellison, the group’s founder, and Snell. The two men discussed how they could bring down the Murrah Federal Building. It was not Snell’s destiny, however, to be the one to accomplish that feat. His plans were sidetracked by his anti-Semitism—his desire to kill Jews and Blacks.
On November 3, 1983, Snell gunned down the owner of a small pawn shop in Texarkana, Arkansas, thinking his victim was a Jew; he was not. The case confounded the authorities for over eight months, but Snell’s rage would prove to be his downfall. On June 30, 1984, Snell was stopped on a lonely western Arkansas highway by State Trooper Louis Bryant. As Bryant approached the vehicle, Snell opened fire with a modified Colt .45, fatally wounding the trooper.
A truck driver who saw the shooting followed Snell across the Oklahoma border and contacted the Broken Bow police. Snell soon ran headlong into a roadblock set up by the police. In the ensuing gun battle, he was wounded and then captured.
Following his arrest, investigators combed through Snell’s vehicle. On the front seat, they found a single piece of paper on which was written my name, address, and unlisted telephone number. A phone call from the ATF would let me know beyond a doubt that that anti-Semitism was alive and flourishing.
Although Snell went to death row for the murders in Arkansas, the CSA continued to thrive and to plan an attack on the Murrah Building. Snell, who was to have led the charge, was instead executed on the same day as the devastating attack in Oklahoma City. His last words were directed at Arkansas Governor Jim Guy Tucker. Snell warned that the governor should “look over your shoulder; justice is coming.”
Whatever you wish to call it – bigotry, anti-Semitism, Jew-hatred – it is vile. It fueled and fed the pogroms in Russia, the Holocaust in Europe, al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s movement in Iran, among others. Jew-hating, Protocols of Zion-loving, Holocaust deniers must be taken seriously.
Bigotry is an equal opportunity employer. The Jews learned that in Europe during World War II. The war on terror cannot be won unless America declares war on bigotry wherever and whenever it raises it ugly head.
