The Cause of Israel is the Cause of America

By Senator John Kerry

Feb 22, 2004

My first trip to Israel made real for me all I'd believed about Israel.

I was allowed to fly an air force jet from the Ovda Airbase. It was then that Israeli insecurity about narrow borders became very real to me. In a matter of minutes, I came close to violating the airspace of Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. From that moment on, I felt as Israelis do: The promise of peace must be secure before the Promised Land is secure on a thin margin of land.

Back on the ground on that first trip, I toured the country from Kibbutz Mizgav Am to Masada to the Golan. I stood in the very shelter in a kibbutz in the north where children were attacked and I looked at launching sites and impact zones for Katousha rockets. I was enthralled by Tel Aviv, moved by Jerusalem and inspired by by standing above Capernaum, looking out over the Sea of Galilee, where I read aloud the Sermon on The Mount. I met people of stunning commitment, who honestly and vigorously debated the issues as I watched and listened intently. I went as a friend by conviction; I returned a friend at the deepest personal level.

As the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel has both the burden and the glory of a vigorous public square. We as Americans must be the truest and best kind of ally--forthright enough to say what we think--and steadfast enough to stay the course in hard passages as well as easy days.

Herzl's famous words--"If you will it, it is no dream"--signify the promise and the greatest power of Israel--and the hope that a fair and secure peace can be achieved. We must be committed to support Israel in the exacting, essential search for that dream.

I will never forget a moment on top of Masada, when I stood on that great plateau where the oath of new soldiers used to be sworn against the desert backdrop and the test of history. I had spent several hours with Yadin Roman debating whether or not Josephus Flavius was correct in his account of the siege--whether these really were the last Jews fighting for survival--whether they had escaped since no remains were ever found. After our journey through history--which we resolved with a vote in favor of history as recorded--we stood as a group at the end of the cliff and altogether we shouted across the chasm--across the desert--Am Yisrael Chai. And across the silence we listened as voices came back--faintly we heard the echo of the souls of those who perished--Am Yisrael Chai. The State of Israel lives. The people of Israel live.

In this difficult time we must again reaffirm we are enlisted for the duration--and reaffirm our belief that the cause of Israel must be the cause of America--and the cause of people of conscience everywhere.

John Kerry is a Massachusetts Senator and a Democratic Candidate for the Presidency of the United States. Article is originally appeared in the Brown Students for Israel publication "Perspectives: An Israel Review"

Bush has already proven himself a traitor to the U.S. in support of Israeli interest. It's not surprising that Kerry and other "pacifiers" of Israel will be seen standing against the American interest in Christ as they develop more terrorism for their own insecurity.

It's an unfortunate thing to see that once again an American presidential candidate, and more than likely president-elect, is in full support of instating the un-godly State of Israel! Just like all the past puppets of the American Regime in the last century. In quoting, and praising, Herzl - the former leader of the Zionist Movement - is a pure indication to the rest of the world of America's continued stance in been the for-runners for creating the desired 'One-World government' - or their "Novus Ordi Seclorum" - under the thumb of Israel's materialistic, separatist, oppressive and destructive philosophies. I only pray that American's will wake-up to the reality of their puppet government, who is no more than a military machine and a global financial manipulator, with American's been the production line, all to the whims of Jewish despots, who will discard of that potentially great nation, and its beautiful people at will - when the time comes around. John Kerry - shame on you! You, like George Bush and so many others, are nothing more than a traitor to not only your fellow Americans but the rest of the peace-loving human race. In following the path that leads to war against God and His pre-ordained Laws; creating, adopting and enforcing the laws of little greedy men, your war will inevitably come and your self-created Beast will devour you all! You have no sympathy from me! Indeed, I welcome the day when Israel meets Dajjal; until then, I rest my faith and my life in the hands of the True God - Allah, the Most High, Whom you fear so much - not selfish little cowards: like YOU! A.G.

POLITICS IS FOR THE BIRDS

Misplaced loyalties, greed and mindless (eager-beaver) precinct caucus ‘animal’ habits have consequences. In the iniquitous world of ‘beltway’ politics it’s understandable for decent, law-abiding Americans to ask themselves, “why should I vote” for the leading *democratic or republican candidate for president if I have reason to believe that their superior allegiance is with nations beyond our shores? Indeed, the skillful merchandising of (fear) among unscrupulous lawmakers by narrow interests and powerful pro-Israeli lobbying groups, such as Southern Evangelists and AIPAC has the capacity to bankrupt a nation and destroy representative government. For many years now I have felt that a handful of misguided party activists at the state precinct caucus level in the democratic and republican parties have become so preoccupied with developing strategies for winning elections that they’ve lost sight of larger more important issues, such as the critical need for re-examining and re-writing US foreign policy. Indeed it is this kind of negligence, coupled with our reluctance to keep our eye on both isles of congress and the interior (dark/shadowy) mechanisms of government that has enabled media and a handful of deceitful, hard-nosed political action committee members to seize control of government, involve us in unnecessary wars and corrupt the entire stock, length and breadth of the American democratic process (for additional insight into this ‘life and death’ problem, I suggest that those of you who care about the future of your country go to www.Amazon.com, and purchase a copy of, “They Dare to Speak out,” Second Edition, by Paul Findley, ex-US congressman from Illinois for twenty-two years)... and “Dispensationalism Impacting US Policy” by Tom Valentine of The Spotlight, a national newspaper at http://www.preteristarchive.com/dEmEnTiA/press_valentine-tom.html Aye, revelations in both these manuscripts will literally ‘blow away your mind!’ Surely by now all open-eyed Americans know that a media inspired, politically condoned cover-up of the “Israeli Assault on USS Liberty (AGTR-5), June 8, 1967, the Bosnian conflict, 911, the war with Iraq, the attempt to solidify and harden a US styled regime change in Afghanistan, suicide bombings in Israel and the so-called, “hateful acts of world terrorism” directed against American and Israeli interests are the result of Israel’ unquestioned (lordly) influence over US foreign policy.

Politics the art of compromise

There is no doubt that this administration; members of congress and the leading candidates for president believe that “Politics is the art of compromise,” and that if one wanted principled consistency, one could find it only in ‘religion.’ It is this attitude upon which we should focus our attention, for I believe that the difficulties we experience (both from within ourselves as individuals and socially) derive from our genetics, our values, our faith, and the locus of our loyalties and a sense of division. The attitude that one’s culture, practical experiences and philosophical beliefs are nothing more than interesting “ideas” that have no relevance to how we behave is destroying us… both individually and socially. It derives from the same sentiment, articulated in the actions of Bill Clinton, that truth-telling is simply one of a number of strategies available to those striving to reach political compromise and that a lie is as good as the truth if we can get others to believe it. It is the notion that integrity and principles are nothing more than fungible commodities – to be traded according to prevailing prices dictated by special (narrow) interests…

Thirty-seven years of betrayal and neglect too much for USS Liberty survivors While abandonment and betrayal is generally thought to be uncivilized (in any setting) it can become far more painful for victims when they learn that those ordering their abandonment originated with their commander-in-chief… Aye, as frightening as this might seem the anxieties and mental torture resulting from thirty-seven years of (intentional) silence and neglect by a body of unprincipled, politically inspired lawmakers, whom Liberty survivors and their families are obliged to turn to for answers can be a far more savage and debilitating human experience.

Imposters or patriots

There are growing bodies of distinguished Americans (and others) who feel it essential for congress to appoint a special prosecutor to search for its version of USS Liberty truth before this matter will be laid to rest. Indeed, these people feel as I do that it is the responsibility of Liberty survivor’s elected representatives in the House and Senate to hear and investigate their thirty-seven year old cries for fundamental justice. Nothing more, nothing less! Surely Israel deserves to have this monkey lifted from its back and those who were killed that day deserve to have their injured shipmates voices heard on their behalf… Lawmaker’s undemocratic and unprincipled fear of AIPAC lobbyist notwithstanding, anything less than this on their constituent’s behalf is in violation of their oath of office, un-American, criminally negligent, cruel and inexcusable!

Does “The Liberty Incident” reveal the truth or was it a desperate search for a (credible) excuse It is incumbent on members of congress who claim to believe that ex US Naval Reserve aviator and distinguished American Jew, Judge A. Jay Cristol has (at long last) revealed the truth in his book, “The Liberty Incident,” to prevail on him to join with them and a body of old sea-going sailors with vastly more ‘real life’ experience in the art and science of ship/aircraft identification from the signal and navigation bridges of warships during combat and in peacetime conditions than Judge Cristol or any of his shipmates (or any member of congress in the history of this country, for that matter) in analyzing that evidence while under the watchful eye and scrutiny of a polygraph examiner and suspicious public on primetime, network TV. Anything less than this will not only inflame the thirty-seven year old physical and psychological wounds carried by these graying warriors, but it will also make it extremely difficult for lawmakers and Israel to hold onto the American people’s support and trust…

(See a growing body of websites on the internet calling roaming Netizen’ attention to the (real) reasons for a US news/entertainment media inspired, politically condoned cover-up of this senseless crime)! Yankee politics in year 2004 Exhibits the same level of chicanery and corruption for Americans as it did in 1967, when Lyndon B. Johnson ordered Robert S. McNamara to put a lid on the “Israeli Assault on USS Liberty,” June 8, 1967… Oh, how un-American and hurtful it can be for wounded seafarers and their families to have to endure the humiliation and shame of a US news/entertainment media inspired, politically condoned thirty-seven year old cover-up of one of the most senseless and heartless crimes ever carried out against uniformed Americans on the high seas in the history of this country (see sampling editorials and affidavits) by Nicholas M. Horrock UPI Chief White House Correspondent at http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=20031022-052400-3673r And retired Capt. Ward Boston Jr, US Navy (Ret.), and Senior Counsel to the USS Liberty Court of Inquiry in 1967 at http://www.ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/ul-boston.html And Admiral Thomas Moorer, US Navy (Ret.), now deceased, ex-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at http://www.ussliberty.org/moorer2004.htm Good enough reason for you and me to withdraw from all political referendums. I simply refuse to help egotistical, power-hungry imposters grow the corruption… *Do not be deceived by the (campaign) propaganda being dispersed by John Kerry, John Edwards and George Bush because they are (all) cut from the same mold!

A short coment on the nation Israel and our support for them. I suppose it is not a bad thing to have a foreign policy that has some support for the nation Israel but we need to realize who the biblical Israel is. I contend that the true Israel found in the bible is none other than the true church which is made up of believers in Jesus Christ. The politicians of the united states have never understood that fact and indeed most of the church have not understood it. The reason the for this misunderstanding is as a result of misinterpretation of scripture. Hugh Clark

Dear Sen Kerry Israel is God's prophetic timepiece according to the Bible. "The burden of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of th earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.: Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the surrounding peoples when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem, "And it will happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all the peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut to pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it." Please read Zechariah chapter 12. "For when they say ,"Peace and Safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape." 1 Thess 5:3 The Bible is history written in advance. So Senator Kerry, if you are elected President be aware of what the Bible teaches for it truly is the inerrant Word of God and every prophecy has or will come true. Bush has played the fool and boasted that God chose him for such a time in history, but Satan is the "god of this world" and he has blinded the eyes of many who trade their souls for money and fame during this short uncertain life on earth "What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul in the process?" Mark 8:36 I really believe that you want be a man of honor and a good president, If you believe that the bible is the Word of God and you govern accordingly without being "self righteous" like many of the Republican Pharisees who Jesus warns against in Matthew, chapter 23 you will serve God and the nation well. Don't let personal ambition be your "idol" like so many politicians do, but humble yourself before God and pray for our country and for the peace of Jerusalem and please read 2 Chronicles 7:14. BTW I am not a preacher or an officer in the church, I am a senior citizen, a woman, who loves the Lord and believes that the bible is the only real standard that we can rely on. Bible means: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Read it to be wise follow it to be right with your Creator. And above all don't rely on the teaching of men, but read it for yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to teach you (1 John 2:26,27) If you would like to reply, my name is Del Johnson.

I think that John Kerry is very seriuosly deluded if he thinks that the Israel of today is part of God's purpose. If he were to become the next US president and continues to support the Israel of today he will be doing so to the detriment of the USA. But, being a politian I suppose he will do anything to get a vote.

Perhaps the reason why Jouhn Kerry supports Israel is because John Kerry is Jewish. Read it for yourself from a Jewish reporter. "KERRY, GAZA AND THE NEW SABBATEAN HOLOCAUST ...And what did we recently discover; why Kerry is Jewish on his father's side. Somehow, he forgot the fact that his grandparents were prominent Jewish business people in Prague and that his father is 100% Jewish. Ask yourself, do you know anyone who doesn't know his father's religious background? As rare as it must be, that affliction runs rampant in CFR circles. Former CFR Secretary-of-State Madeleine Albright also forgot that both her parents were Jews, even though she was raised in the Jewish home of her relatives in London. If you don't feel like voting Kerry, there is Wesley Clark waiting in the wings. Uncannily, he is also a CFR member who only discovered his father was Jewish while he was burning Bosnia to ashes. Now how come, no matter which Democrat you choose, you get a CFR half-Jew who forgot all about it? The answer is found in the Sabbatean (also Shabbataian and similar spellings) policy of having their Jewish apostate followers converting and hiding their roots and beliefs.

National Israel is not the true Israel. The land promises have already been fulfilled people, Josh 21:43-45. A Jew is not a Jew outwardly, but inwardly, Romans 2:29. Not all of Israel is of Israel, Romans 9:6-8, but those who are a part of the promised seed, who is Christ. If you are in Christ you are a part of the Abrahamic seed (covenentally), Gal. 3:26-29. Read Ephesians chapters 1 thru 3, God has one program, one body, not two. Tony

A purely political statement without the least mention of Christ or His gospel. Kerry is a politican which by basic definition puts him outside the camp with the unclean. The Democratic Party's first position is the shedding of innocent blood, i.e., abortion, their views go downhill from there.

I never cared for John Kerry, even before I read this article. In case you haven't noticed Mr. Kerry, US means "us" and there's no "us" in Israel! But, let's face it, Kerry flip-flops so much, he'll say something totally different tomorrow.

Well, the election time has come in the USA, with Kerry, definitely, a favorite amongst those who hate violence. In one sense, he is lesser of the two evils. But what saddens me most is to see how our leaders (from both the major parties) have become so immoral and blind to their unquestioning or unwavering support for the Zionist state. Not a word of sympathy is uttered for the suffering Palestinian people, whose lands have been stolen and given to the Europeans, mostly of Khajarite origin, with no historical attachment to the land. No one feels the pain of a Palestinian father or a mother or a brother or a sister who had seen his son or daughter, brother or sister killed by Israeli Defense Force or armed settlers for just being a Palestinian, whose houses and orchards are routinely demolished and uprooted by the most apartheid regime the world has ever seen. So, John Edwards (Kerry's running mate) sheds tears for the death of an Israeli child by a Palestinian suicide bomber. That is noble. But when one compares his indifference to the routine violence of human rights, perpetrated by the Zionist state against the people of the soil - the Palestinians - it is criminal. He is shamelessly silent, as if to condone such war crimes perpetrated by the Zionist state. That is the bankruptcy of morality and justice. That is unfair and savage. What is coming to America, if not a whole-sale mortage of our nation to the powerful Zionist lobby that puts the interest of the rogue state above everything else? It is criminal to the core. Our nation has become the ally to the most ruthless government on the face of the earth that knows no mercy for non-Jewish people. I often wonder how could my Jewish cousins allow the hijacking of their religion by these murderers and thugs, albeit war criminals! Of all people, who survived the holocaust, the pogroms and inquisitions, how could they practice or aid such horrendous crimes, now perpetrated routinely by their Zionist brothers? Are such wanton crimes to be only ignored hoping that would make all our lives safer in this planet?

Sen. Kerry has confirmed by these words that he has been properly leashed by the masters of AIPAC & other Zionist lobbyists. This is yet another reason why the Zionists do not really care who wins any American election from President to Manager of the Town Dump. They will all fall in line or be crushed by the enormous weight of the world-wide control of the media, entertainment industry, press, and banking conspirators who throughout history have screamed bloody murder when confronted with these facts, all the while laughing as everyone looks, sees, understands, and then denies the obvious. Like all politicians who denounce Israel, Kerry will also, when he is ready to retire. Until then he will bark and jump through hoops like all the other political harlots in the Great Pimp's brothel.
