Yahweh to Trump: " I will bless those who bless you (Israel) , and him who dishonors you I will curse" Gen12:3

Before the Jewish gathering today, my man knocked it out of the park. When Hillary said she would support Israel, it rang hollow. When the Donald said it, you knew he really means it.

I wondered if Donald knew his Scripture regarding Israel: Isaiah 41:11-12 ESV "Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all."

You wouldn't have to ask if CRUZ knew his Scripture regarding Israel.

Sarkazein said...

Cruz takes immediate Trump shot: "perhaps to the surprise of the last speaker, Palestine has not existed since 1948."

Johnny Rico said...

U.S. leaders ignore Israel at your, and our, peril. Biblical prophecy will come to fruition as it has throughout history. Sodom and Gomorrah should be lessons, but the Godless sneer.

“I’ve studied this issue in great detail. I would say actually greater by far than anybody else,” Trump told the audience, prompting laughter.

Frankly, it concerns me very much when I see American officials and prominent citizens appearing before an organization whose first priority is to another country. In my opinion, these officials first and only allegiance is to American citizens and their best interests.

Sarkazein said...

Well Frankly, how do you know it is their first priority?

Anonymous 3:39PM- Do you think those "prominent citizens" can't chew gum and walk at the same time? Their "only allegiance"? Do you only allow one to a customer?

This organization promotes US support and defense for Israel with Billions yearly and political backing, no matter what the issue or controversy; no matter what actions Israeli leaders and the Mossad take or statements they make. Take a good hard look at the history of that country. They have abused our 'friendship' and been deceitful, to say the very least, on numerous occasions. Truthfully, they view us with contempt; we are 'goyim' to them. They have no regard for American lives. Examine the attitude and policies that AIPAC and allied groups demand of the US and European countries. Read more than just propaganda coming from US sources. Answer these questions: Why are we so heavily involved in that region? Whose interests does our policies and presence in that region serve, and at what cost in lives and wealth to the American and European people? Why are we so hell-bent on destroying several countries and millions of people, thus, destabilizing that entire region beyond repair ? Whose interests does this belligerence serve ? The immediate danger to the US and Europe results from that blind and very dangerous attitude and policy of many years.

its always curious to see the Zionists first defense, offense, accusing you of hating Jews. Israel is an apartheid regime profiting from invading the land of another people citing two thousand year old history. South Africa and America were comparative criminals. Jews that object to Israel's criminal actions are called self-hating and the rest of us are accused of racism.
speak accurately about Nazi's and you aren't called anti-German.
speak of Israel's attack on our navy vessel, the USS Liberty in 1967, and it will be ignored or written off. its an illustration of how Israel acts and how we fail to respond. we're a wholly owned subsidiary of Israel, our owners.

Did you wag your tongue and make the turkey noise on 911 from behind your vail? Has 100 of your relatives had their asses kicked by 5 Israelis during one of the Arab wars attacks on Israel?

Nonymouse coward said:

"Israel is an apartheid regime profiting from invading the land of another people citing two thousand year old history"

Doesn't this mean the United States is an apartheid regime profiting from invading the land of another people citing manifest destiny? Funny how you liberal socialists pick Israel out of a thousand examples and plant your flag there. Why? Nonsensical.

What about the forced resettlement of southern Appalachian mountaineers to build Shenandoah National Park, The Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, and various TVA impoundments throughout the region. Many of these mountaineers, as inconvenient as it is for dolts like you, were removed at gunpoint. Their graveyards were dug up, or placed off limits to them. Their hundreds of years of culture and sense of place were uprooted (by socialists like you). How come no mention of this? Revisionist history has almost erased what these people went through. The amount of land area taken from southern Appalachian mountaineers far exceeds Israel, yet not a peep from hypocritical socialist sheep (you).

Before you yap about Israel, remember there are still thousands of people alive today that were resettled right here in NC, Tennessee, Virginia. Why no mention of them?

racism knows no boundaries. America was/is guilty of one of the greatest holocausts of all time for its treatment then, and now, of our indigenous population. the same is true of how we treated those removed by the TVA and the parkway, or Japanese in WW two. Russians lost some thirty million in WW two but somehow its not as important as Jews. how about our veterans killed and wounded in the bonus march of the early thirties by our hero, McArther, Patton and Eisenhower.cowards are those who don't investigate real history and parade the crap their TV tells them.
the cowards are those who get in line and do whatever their TV or favorite lying political figure tells them is true without investigation or finding a mind of their own.
by all international standards, Israel and America operate little different than the Nazis did. cowards refuse to discover this.

Thank you Anonymous 10:59 AM. It is nice of you to at least in your last couple of comments show what you really are. Now, the question of the day- Who is your candidate for President?

Sarkazein said...

Anonymous 10:59 AM is another in a long line of liberal commenters who cannot draw analogies. Somehow, the detaining, housing and feeding of Japanese people in America during WW2 is the same as gassing/executing innocent men woman and children because of their religion. Somehow, fighting Indians in an attempt to civilize a land is the same as gassing/executing innocent men women and children for their religion. Putting them on reservations where they can come on go or move off the reservation is the same as genocide. You should ask for a refund of your college tuition.

"by all international standards, Israel and America operate little different than the Nazis did".

Not so. AND, most Arabs sided with the NAZI Socialists in WW2. The Bathe Party was an off shoot of the NAZI Party.

Johnny Rico said...

Nonymouse Coward,

If the forced resettlement of Appalachian Mountaineers by the thousands is racist and Nazi-like as you say, then why no mention of this by liberals? Not a peep? It's forgotten history that will die when the last of those resettled die. Why would you yap about Palestine and Israel when criminal resettlement occurred in the very mountains and county you live in? You know, think globally, act locally. To continue to ignore forced resettlement of Appalachian Mountaineers while acting concerned about a country several thousand miles away makes me think you choose Muslim extremists over American citizens. Please explain. This ought to be interesting.........

Johnny Rico said...

Still waiting. Simple, straightforward question.

Anonymous said...

J.R. Any forced resettlement off land belonging to another is wrong, period, especially in the eyes of the weaker, whether in America or across the waters. This practice has been prevalent throughout history. That is the nature of most humankind. And it is the nature of humans to fight for their property if another is trying to take it. It is the nature of subjected humans to fight against oppression and cruelty, whether by government or individuals.

J.R. You and some of your colleagues are making erroneous assumptions re: the political affiliations of some who occasionally comment here. Also, the present-day owners of Appalachian land are indeed being forced off their properties, either by powerful PC groups controlling government and/or realty exploitation of rising land values for a predetermined, narrow-minded, yet unstable, economic engine. These methods are being used and abused to force present-day property owners out. I am just as angry about this ugly, forced agenda here as much as you may be.

Your last sentence re: Muslims and American citizens is a stretch in logic, to say the least. The vital point that some previous comments makes is that the history and conditions in the State of Israel that the Palestinians have to endure has been kept from most Americans. Our 'free press' does not report both sides. Perhaps if you or some of your colleagues search some Israeli news sources, you might get a better idea of the reality of living in Israel and the Palestinian-owned lands the Israeli army occupies.

Also, our government and some allies have been interfering in the Middle East for several decades, deposing duly elected leaders, generating wars and participating in wars, which the State of Israel benefits from, though, not necessarily some of its citizens. Our young men have been sent to kill and be killed, destabilizing that entire region; our wealth has gone to destroy and take resources, and definitely not for our benefit. Plus, our tax money, ~ $ 5 B, goes to Israel every year, some is used to harass, persecute, and force out innocent Palestinians from their own land, some who are farmers who have lived on the land for centuries, by an occupying Israeli army and settlement policies that benefit Jewish Israelis only. And to their credit, a few Israeli soldiers and Israeli citizens oppose this oppressive treatment of the Palestinians by their Israeli government.

Again, JR, we and our European cousins are experiencing the horrible results of the stupid, bizarre, and belligerent policies that our governments and those who control our governments, have purposely inflicted on millions of people who have not harmed us one iota. But we've forced some of them to be our deadly enemies.

Can you possibly understand any of this? No, I don't agree with the Islam religion. I am a Christian. Another point, please; there are also some Palestinian Christians, who are going through the same ugly treatment that their Palestinian Muslim neighbors are experiencing.

I hope this will clarify the situation better.

Johnny Rico said...

Nonymouse Coward,

You indicate you are angry over resettlement of Appalachian Mountaineers, yet you gloss over that situation by expounding on the Israel/Palestine conflict. Your actions do not indicate ANY anger over Appalachian Mountaineers being removed at gunpoint from their land. Yet I do sense much anger over the Israel/Palestine situation. Why the disparity? Why do you fight for violent muslim extremists and not for Appalachian Mountaineers? Is it because the mountaineers are white Christians not worthy of your attention? Or is it because I brought it to your attention for the very first time? What is the reason? Other liberals do exactly the same thing. You've paid me lip service, but the Israel/Palestine situation still seems to be front and center. You choose filthy, women-stoning muslims over Americans. This is the way of liberals these days. Hypocrisy squared.

Anonymous said...

being accused of being an 'nonymouse coward' from someone using an alias like 'johnny rico' is most entertaining. there is a group think in this land adopted by those who are unwilling or incapable of thinking for themselves so to avoid being rejected by their herd, they accept the lies and half-truths sold on their tv.
or do you believe what you see on tv because you think government and corporate interests only look out for your well being?

before 1948 the only Muslim terrorism seen was by Algerians against the french. the invasion of Palestine by European joos created what we now experience. to believe otherwise indicates possession of a new mind altering drug sure to make you much cash. what would you do if your home was invaded? to expect others to act differently indicates a great amount of self absorption.

to focus on some bait and switch games deciding that because a person hasn't taken up the cross you carry, their concerns are immaterial is an indication of who you are. any who are the christian they ostensibly represent themselves as and uses their brain to investigate their world, not mindlessly accepting the word of others, would see this statement as absurd; "fighting Indians in an attempt to civilize a land is the same as gassing/executing innocent men women and children for their religion". our ancestors invaded this land and committed serial genocide in ways that are little different than what we support with our blood and treasure in Israel's crimes. the rationalization you use to fool your christian mind into acceptance of that is immaterial.

when our turn at 'Nuremberg' trials comes someday as it must, you, johnny rico, will have a turn at experiencing what the Germans did in 1945.

Sarkazein said...

Anonymous 7:26 AM- Today's Islamist terrorism started in 1928, not 1948 as you deceptively attempt to make Israel the blame. It started with the Muslim Brotherhood AKA Ikhwan al-Muslimun (SP). It was started by Muslims who believed no Arab country should be led by secularist rulers. Muslim on Muslim crime.
The "Palestinians" are cowardly terrorists.

The Israelis turn a desert into a garden. The "Palestinians" turn a desert into a slum.

http://althenews.wordpress.com is a location to find out a small part of the other view of Israel's crimes. there are many more as you know sarkazein but as a hasbarat, your intent isn't truth but to beat the drum for your pov; poor little put upon israel but neglecting to speak accurately of their origins; invasion and genocide.

those 'cowardly terrorist' palestinians are defending their lives and property against invading joos. there were no terrorists in palestine until the zionists began buying farms there in the early part of the last century. there was no palestinian terrorism anywhere outside of israel until the started their third war in 1967 and removed all chance of any palestinans living free.

i ask you as i do all supporters of israel's crimes; what would you do if your home was invaded as theirs was?

I live in Houston Texas. We have an enormous illegal alien population. No one I know has strapped an exploding vest on to their retarded niece and sent her into a taqueria on North Main St to blow up a bunch of ninios (sp) who are trying to beat the candy out of a pinyada (sp) . Does that answer your goofy question?

Anonymous said...

the aliens you encounter aren't aggressively attacking you, removing you from your home and otherwise marking you as somehow less. in the 1947/48 war in palestine, some eight hundred thousand palestinians, including christians, were chased from their homes and many were killed. women, children, old people, non-combatants. that hasn't stopped since. now their homes are being demolished and more land taken daily.

your goofy response solidifies your activities as a hasbarat and since you're in houston, hardly a local involved in local conversation. israel is very much like south africa was and nazi germany was in its treatment of part of its population.

south americans are coming here because of the results of nafta which a famous presidential candidate from your area warned us of the results. they come here because our country decided it would be a great idea to put their farmers out of business to sell mexico corn from our agribusiness monsanto monsters.

show us why palestinians have no right to fight against being victims of aggressive occupying joos.

Anonymous said...

so, when you descend into terms like coward, are you regressing to fourth grade recess, sarkazein?

as a hasbarat like you well knows history is written by the victors as is now the case in nazi israel and its puppy, america. in america if you oppose israel's crimes, you can't be elected to any public office and israel's lobbyists will make sure of that.

its not permitted by the media's owners to take any stand against those crimes as well. a frequent hasbarat tactic is bait and switch or refusal to address any historically accessible facts, like the ethic cleansing of palestine from 1947 up to and including the present day.

Sarkazein said...

You might also notice, illegal aliens here, outside of their high crime rate, are not going into diners and fast food restaurants blowing up children as they eat.
The "Palestinian" decided their own history of defeat when they sided with other Arabs in the Forties, Sixties, and Seventies to have their collected asses kicked in the wars by an army much smaller.

"Joos"? What is your definition, coward?

Sarkazein said...

The "Palestinians" "ethnically cleansed" themselves. When they are not fighting with Israel, they are fighting each other or being kicked out of Jordan (their actual homeland) or being kicked out of Lebanon while firing their AK's in the air in celebration killing innocents by negligence that time.

Sarkazein said...

The only victory the "Palestinians" can claim is in the Palestinian Civil War between Hamas vs Fatah. They voted in a terrorist government, then started killing each other for it.

The Barbary Pirates were Muslim terrorists. The newly established United States of America went after those Muslim terrorists as one of our very first military actions. But, according to the liberal sheep (you), we were probably wrong in going after the Barbary Pirates. Someone should get "Nuremburged" for hurting those poor pirates!! LOL!!!

The fetish you have with Israel and the Palestinian terrorists is typical of liberals. For some odd reason, you take up the banner for palestenian muslim scum; probably because you hate Christians and Christian nations. You do this under the guise of land grabs by the Israelis, but it is in fact the Christian settlement that has you all hot and bothered. This is why I mentioned land grabs by your own government against our Southern Highlanders during the 1st half of the 20th Century. You stuttered a rhetorical reply and then right back to the palestinians. Liberal sheep (you) actually choose muslim extremist terrorists over American citizens - this much is clear from your palastine fetish. Jane Fonda must be a hero of yours!!!!!! How many soldiers did you spit on returing from Vietnam?

The resettlement of Southern Highlanders represents a local atrocity that liberals like you don't want to touch. This is why you're never taken seriously and Israel is.

But maybe you can answer a question for me. Why do so many Muslims flee Muslim countries. Has Israel appointed all the leadership of Muslim countries? Who is attacking who in the Syrian Civil War? Who kills more Muslims every year in violent attacks? Israelis or Muslims?

Perhaps you should only debate PaulGetty about 6 comments up.

nonymouse coward,

Did your little feelings get hurt? Nonymous coward have a boo boo. Here let me make it better: You were caught in what's known as a conundrum. Over the past several years you, and other liberal socialist sheep, dug a pit and then fell in it. For the past 15 years, liberal socialist sheep railed against Israel, feigning anger over the farce called palestine (notice lower case). You expressed faux outrage over Israel supposedly taking land from palestine. When I highlighted the forced resettlement of Southern Highlanders, noting the taking of millions of acres of lands by the U.S. Government, often times at gunpoint, you suddenly didn't want to talk about that. In other words, as long as land is taken from white Christians, it's ok. If it's taken from extremist muslims (all muslims), then we have a problem. In other words, I've outed your hypocrisy once again, and you can't stand it. I've also shown how you choose fringe left terrorists (muslims) over American citizens. You lash out at Sark who happens to be the very last person you need to lash out at as you've seen above.

Do you plan on lobbying Congress to give land back to the Southern Highlanders? If not, why? You certainly seem ready to jump onto a bandwagon against Israel.

Stings don't it.

Johnny Rico said...

nonymouse coward,

Your barely intelligible response once again indicates fundamentalist support of extremist muslims (notice lower case) over American citizens. Calling Israel an apartheid state is a vast misrepresentation of facts - a lie in layman's terms. Israel enjoys multiple nationalities within its borders, including moo-slims. What is does not do, is put up with extremist moo-slims trying to kill women and children - something moo-slims are very good at these days. What the rest of the world calls a secure state, you are calling "apartheid." Wow.

The resettlement of Southern Highlanders, by the thousands is something liberal socialist sheep, you, want to avoid. You blabber and blow and attempt calling it something it isn't (imminent domain). Laughable. Your support of the resettlement of Southern Highlanders, contrasted with your advocacy of palestinians (extremist moo-slims) indicates immeasurable hypocrisy. As I've said above, you choose muslim extremists over American citizens every time. You've been called out on it and don't know what to do!!
