Obama Middle East Speech Proves That He has No Intention to Change Foreign Policy

22 05 2011

By Christopher Thompson

I know that I am a little late on Obama’s recent Middle East speech, that’s because I just watched it. There is a lot of buzz around this speech particularly from the religious right about the part of the

speech involving the Israel-palestine conflict. I heard al these right wingers talk about how Obama is Betraying Israel. How do they figure? What I got from the speech is that Obama is screwing Palestine just as much as every politician before him.

First of all, I don’t believe we should be supporting Israel period, just like we shouldn’t have helped create the Zionist state at the end of WWII. Sure Obama talks of a Palestinian state, but not one that has a chance of surviving. I love how our politicians always demands that Palestine acknowledge Israel’s right to exists, yet nobody says that Israel should acknowledge Palestine’s right to exist.

Obama says “Our friendship with Israel is rooted deep in shared History and values.” What, Like the fact that both nations were founded by white Europeans, who went to a land that wasn’t theirs, to kill the indigenous people to steal their land? He also goes on to say that we won’t stand for Israel to be singled out By the International community. Kind of like how The US singles out Iran, while Our Allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia get a license to kill? Even Iran doesn’t go into international waters and attack ships with Humanitarian aid, in violation of Geneva convention rules.

He goes on to state “Every state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be allowed to defend themselves. ” Yet, his plan calls for a demilitarized Palestine.
Wait, a minute, didn’t he say every state has the right to defend themselves? Yet he calls for a Palestine that is not even allowed the means to defend its self . Israel’s history of “defending” itself is to attack other countries and settle its land, and if those countries truly defend themselves they are called terrorists. Israel doesn’t only occupy Palestinian land, they also occupy land that once belonged to Lebanon , Syria and Jordan. Wow, self-defence really seems to work to Israel’s advantage. every time Israel “defends” themselves, they acquire more land. So, basically when Obama says that every state has the right to self-defense, every one translates to Israel, and self-defense translates to Imperialist expansion.
There you have it folks, Obama has not done a damn thing to change our flawed foreign policy.

Right-Wing, Anti_islamic and Christian Zionist Blogs on word press

7 04 2011

Here are three Fascist right wing sites that promote Anti-Islamic hatred and bigotry. the First two accused me of Anti-semitism because I dont support Israel’s extermination of the palestinian people. Anti-Zionism does not equal anti_semitism.

the third blog is a blog that  claims to promote religious freedom by telling Muslims that they need to get out of America. the Minute you start stating facts to these kind of people they start claiming that you are predudice and evil. feel free to go to these sites and raise your voice against there false truths. But you will probably be accused of things that arent true and they will only side step your questions.

Why We Should Be

Concerned About

Christian Zionism

• It can lead to the dehumanization of Israelis and Palestinians

Because Christian Zionism bases support for the State of Israel on its supposed

role in the end of history, its adherents tend to treat Israelis and Palestinians not

as neighbors to be loved, but as pawns in a cosmic drama of divine vengeance and

retribution. The conclusion of this drama involves the death of all non-Christians,

including Jews, through apocalyptic warfare or divine judgment. Given these

beliefs, even many Jews wonder if the movement promotes proper Jewish-

Christian relationships and question the nature of the movement’s support for

Israel.

• It is not based on traditional teaching or doctrines of the Church

Christian Zionism and its theological presuppositions are nineteenth-century

innovations in Christian doctrine. The most prominent spokesperson for these

beliefs was John Nelson Darby (1800-1882). Although the advocates of Christian

Zionism and its underlying theology sometimes claim to base their beliefs on

ancient understandings, generally scholars recognize these to be recent

innovations.

• Evangelical Christians are concerned

Ideological Christian Zionists sometimes claim that they speak on behalf of all

American evangelicals. This is not so. Many evangelicals in the US do not want to

be identified as ideological Christian Zionists. Several prominent evangelical

spokespersons have spoken out strongly against this ideology, recognizing how it

contradicts the central commitments of Christianity to justice and peace-making.

Many question its theological assumptions.

HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND?

Christians in the West must ask themselves questions about

the influence of Christian Zionism on US public opinion. It

grieves the member communions of the National Council of

the Churches of Christ in the USA to note that many

Christians visiting the land of Jesus’ birth, death, and

resurrection are not even aware of the existence of Arab

Christians, and do not have opportunities to interact with

local Christian communities. One step toward addressing this

concern is for Christians in the West to become better aware

of Christian Zionism and its effects, including the history,

theology, and forms of biblical interpretation underlying this

ideology. Please take the time to learn what this movement

is all about, get involved, and continue to “pray for the

peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6).

Christians are troubled when injustice is committed. We are especially troubled

when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for

ideological purposes. One such misappropriation is commonly referred to as

Christian Zionism.

WHAT IS CHRISTIAN ZIONISM?

Christian Zionism may be defined either broadly or narrowly. Broadly speaking, it

designates any Christian support for the national revival movement of the Jewish

people realized through the establishment of the modern State of Israel

(historically known as Zionism). More narrowly defined, Christian Zionism is an

ideology grounded in beliefs which consider the State of Israel to be divinely

ordained and scripturally determined with a central role in ushering in the end of

history, where unconverted Jews and unbelievers (including Christians who are

considered to be of questionable status) are judged by God’s wrath. It is the

narrower form that causes immediate concern.

WHY SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED?

There are a number of reasons why this narrow ideological form of Christian

Zionism raises concerns for the member communions of the National Council of the

Churches of Christ in the USA. Among these are the following:

• It is a movement with negative consequences for Middle East peace

Christian Zionism, in its narrow ideological form, encourages political advocacy

committed to preserving control over all of historic Palestine for Jewish people

alone, including the West Bank and Gaza strip, to ensure the realization of the

movement’s own end-times hopes. This ideological approach rejects any peace

process built on a negotiated settlement towards a two-state solution to the

conflict. Leading advocates of this ideology have formed themselves into

oftentimes very public and well-funded political action groups whose aim is to

prevent any negotiations that may lead to a two-state solution to the conflict.

• It fosters fear and hatred of Muslims and non-western Christians

Prominent spokespersons for Christian Zionism are known for promoting negative

stereotypes of Muslims and Middle Easterners, including Middle Eastern Christians.

They often accuse these Christians of siding with Muslims against the US and the

State of Israel in a cosmic battle of good and evil, thus questioning their Christian

faithfulness. Rather than fostering understanding and cooperation with neighbors,

ideological Christian Zionism often teaches Christians in the US to harbor suspicion

and enmity towards Muslims and non-westernized Christians. When it does so, the

movement negates Christ’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew

22:39).

From Kent State to Lybia: U.S. Government Hypocrisy at it’s best

30 03 2011

  

 

  

                                                                     writen by Christopher Jay Thompson

  

 The situation in Libya reminds me of something that happened during another war, the Vietnam war. Yet it isn’t something  that happen on the other side of the world, It happened here inthe good ol’ USA. That incident was called the Kent State massacre.

 Here is a little history lesson for those of you who are not familiar with the Kent State massacre. On May 4th of  1970, at Kent State University in Ohio,  National guardsmen  opened fire on college students who were peacefully Protesting against the Vietnam war. Four of the victims died, nine others were seriously wounded.

This is something that  barely happened  41 years ago. So, it wasn’t that long ago. What recently happened  in Libya is Just  the Kent State Massacre on a grander scale.So, what right Does the  United States government have to take part of coalition offensive for something the US government has done itself; killed its own people. I mean, come on, it’s not like the Kent State incident is ancient history. It is utter hypocrisy .





The Evils of the new Evangelical Movement

27 02 2011

When I speak of the new Evangelical movement I am not talking about something brand new. I am talking about a  dangerous theology that began with people Like Oral Roberts, and was brought to the mainstream by people such as Pat Robertson. It has imbedded itself in various denominations. It is a politically Conservative  oriented movement and is poisoning the minds of americans as well as in north african countries. One famous person who subscribes to this belief system is former president George W Bush. Groups like the Christian coalition and the American Family Association. It is  a theology that embraces Homophobia, Islamiphobia and censorship. They claim that the constitution does not ban separation of church and state and that their religious beliefs should be the basis of American politics. They also believe that it is their duty to bring about the apocalypse.

  There was a book I looked at , at my local walmart(which is a Christian coalition owned store) , that adhered to this theology. It was saying that such things as Illness and poverty, were not caused by things like microorganisms and greedy corporations, but curses from the devil. Talk about being out of sync with the 21st Century, or the 18th century for that matter. It went on to talk about things that were evil and brought about  such curses. It included such things as sexual fantasies and masturbation, and not following  the Government. So god wants us to  grow up to be sexually frustrated psychos who blindly follow the government. Also it listed things that were evil teachings, Besides Just the Usual christian thing of naming all non-christian religions, It also listed Meditation and martial arts. Last thing we want is for our children to have is a balanced mind, discipline and the ability to defend themselves. I could list all the weird and twisted beliefs of the new evangelism, but that would probably take an entire book.
