A Christmas Message

2. Of course it is Christmas time and though there is so much to write about I thought I’d take a little time off for a few days. So for this week I am posting below under items 3 and 4 the two main pieces from our Christmas post from last year – two pieces which speak to one of the major themes of this blog – that Christians and Muslims have much in common and should be working together. The items concern Christian and Muslim narratives about the birth of Jesus Christ and their relationship to a well-known and widely-sung Christmas carol. My readership this year is rather different from what it was at this time last year, so I think these pieces will be new to many of you.  Enjoy.

3. The Cherry Tree Carol is a haunting story of the mystery and beauty of Christmas derived from one of the apocryphal Gospels, that of Psuedo- Matthew, which is also know as The Infancy Gospel of Matthew.

In this now popular Christmas carol, Joseph and Mary are walking near or through an orchard of cherry trees. She asks Joseph to pick some cherries for her because she is with child and would appreciate a helping hand. Joseph, as husbands tend to do when they discover their wives are pregnant and they know they are not the father, gets angry and tells her to just let the guy who got her pregnant get the cherries for her. No doubt dejected and feeling rejected, Mary knows not what to do.

But then a voice cries out from within his mother’s womb.  It’s the voice of Jesus who commands the cherry trees bow down so that his mother may have something to eat. The trees do what any tree would do if ordered by Jesus, they bow down and Mary exclaims to the effect of  “Hey Joseph, look, I can get all the cherries I want, nyah nyah.” Joseph then realizes that there’s more going on than he at first realized.

Now in the Psuedo-Gospel of Matthew, Chapter Twenty, the story as one might expect, is a bit different, but the similarities are clear. In this version, thought to be the inspiration for The Cherry Tree Carol, Mary, Joseph and a very infant Jesus are in the desert in Egypt and are exhausted from the heat. They come across a date palm tree where they rest. Mary asks Joseph for some dates, but they are pretty high up in the tree and he whines about it saying that instead she should be concerned because of the lack of water and their thirst.  The baby Jesus orders the date palm to lower it’s branches and his Mother is able to eat.  Now the date palm, being humble and worshipful, did not rise back up after she had eaten, but rather it awaited Jesus’ command. Jesus tells it to rise, says it will have its place in paradise, and then he makes one more request of it – something interesting in light of the Quranic version of this story that I will discuss below. He asks it to provide water through one of its hidden roots and it does so – providing clear, cool and sparkling water for the three of them and their animals.

4. Many features of the Cherry Tree Carol and the story from which it is derived are found in the Quranic version of the story in Surah 19, verses 16-34. In this version Joseph is noticeably absent, an absence which highlights the miraculous nature of Jesus’  birth.  The angel Gabriel appears to Mary, who has gone away from her people for some sort of religious purpose,  in fully human form and tells her she will give birth to a son. She is astonished by this and asks how on earth that could be possible since she has never been touched by a man. Gabriel tells her that this is easy for God and that her son will be sent as a mercy to mankind.

So she is now with child and is driven to a date palm tree during the pains of childbirth, pains so severe she wishes she had never been born.  But then a voice cries out – said by commentators to be that of Gabriel though in my own view it could even be that of Jesus – who tells her that all is well and that water has been provided for her beneath her feet. He then tells her to shake the date-palm and that fresh and ripe dates will come pouring down. He tells her to eat and drink and “cool thine eye.” Lastly the voice commands her that if she comes across any man to say that she has vowed to speak to no one that day.

The next thing we see is Mary carrying her new baby back to her people who challenge her morality, as she had no doubt expected and feared. But keeping to her command, she said nothing to them and merely pointed to her baby. The crowd mocked her telling her that they could not possibly converse with a new born.  At this point, the baby Jesus performs his own version of “enough is enough” as he addresses the crowd in no uncertain terms telling them, among other things, that God has made him a prophet and that he is to be blessed wherever he is. He also tells them that he has been commanded to be faithful to his mother, something he clearly intends to do. No doubt the audience was dumb struck. . .

The new-born Jesus then closes:  “And peace be upon me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I am raised up alive.”

Merry Christmas to you all,  from all of us here at Mantiq al-Tayr.

5. Now my favorite version of the Cherry Tree Carol can be found here and it is the one I linked to last year. But I’ve found another one, much simpler, that has some of the tuyuur here applauding. The singer sure is not famous, but there is something endearing about his style. Red Benson comes to the microphone on a winter’s day wearing a big cowboy hat and carrying his guitar.  And he sings for us, The Cherry Tree Carol.

  1. One of Christianity’s best teachers in the modern world was Brother Lawrence who practiced the Presence of God everywhere. If he were alive today, he would say we are to see the Presence of God even in the Palestinians. We cannot torture, maim and kill those whom we should love.

    I would define Love as the realization of Oneness.

    When I was a child, I read a passage in I John Chapter 3 which says, “When we see him (Jesus), we will be like him.” To the Fundamentalist Christian that is an appeal to magical thinking. They believe they can instantly become like God if they allow Israel to start a war and annihilate half the planet. After that Jesus returns and does magic to make them a better person.

    When I read that passage, I knew that I could make the logically equivalent statement: “You will not see Jesus until you are like him.”
    My teacher told me that what I had done was to make a logical transformation called a contra positive.

    Christianity should follow Brother Lawrence and be focused upon our ability to see God everywhere. This would so transform us that we would be more like Christ and less prone to support an Empire.
    It would also eliminate most bank fraud and usury.

    Matiqu, that was very timely piece.

    It is shame that those Israeli lap dogs in our nation capitol rushed the House Resolution 1765 to vote without any public debate. This Resolution condemned the independent Palestinian state
    After all, it is not up to those retards in Washington if and when Palestinians get their freedom.

    Just remember, when 7500 Europeans were asked in 2003 poll , ” which country poses the most threat to world peace? Their # 1 choice was not Iran, North Korea or Venezuela. They picked up Israel as number one country.

    You keep them honest and straight Mantiq!

  3. Thank you Mantiq. I went on youtube and listened to the live version by Judy Collins also, from 1996. It made me tingle all over. I actually felt promise and hope for us all. Something I don’t feel that often anymore. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

  4. Merry Christmas to you, Mantiq.

    Seems to me this is a marathon, not a sprint….and those with stamina and courage will prevail.

    ARE prevailing, slowly but surely.

  5. Merry Christmas to you and yours Mantiq.

    Thank you for all of your inspiration over the last year and may God bless all of your future endeavors.

    Peace,
    Perry (one of your many Muslim brothers)

  6. Freedom of Speech means to never mention the words Merry Christmas but to make certain in addressing the “chosen few” on their appropriate days to use words like, “happy hanakah or rosh hashana”.

    So in the spirit of Christmas Marry Christmas to all except the “chosen few”.

    Salams.

I seek to follow the example of Jesus the Christ which means not making war, fighting, or hating anyone, but loving all and trying to bring peace to this dark and heartless world. I gladly walk and work beside all who seek a peaceful and prosperous world for all of our children.

    “Christians and Muslims have much in common and should be working together. ”

    I agree absolutely.

    HAPPY YAUM UN NABEE ‘ISA IBN MARYAM
    (Peace and blessings be upon him and his Blessed Mother)

    GOD is my witness I do not know what and how to write to both Christians and Muslims on the very solemn occasion of the celebration of the Birthday of Mankind’s Holy Prophet and Messiah, the Word (KUN) from GOD become flesh (FA YA KUN) through a “Virgin”, the Blessed Mother of ‘Isa Massih ibn Maryam, Jesus (Isho, Yeshua, Yehoshua, Isa, Iesus…) the Messiah son of Mary. Yet, I am compelled to write having to depend on the best translations of Biblical Texts I could find, which are still not satisfactory. I taught parthenogenesis in Biology, a form of asexual reproduction in females giving rise to females because of the XX chromosomes. But, in this context, a male was produced, we are told by divine intervention. Whether this is true or not is immaterial. The point made was that the mother was chaste when she was told she would have a baby despite this fact. This can mean many things to a thinking person. To a faithful who believes in the invisible world and forces, there is no doubt that such a miracle can happen.

    John 1:14
    And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten son of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
    (King James Version)

    And the Word took human form and dwelt (tented) among us; and we saw his preciousness (glory), a preciousness like that of an only beloved son of the Father, who is filled with loving kindness and justice.
    (Errico — Aramaic text)

    Well, to be fair to Atheists, let me assume there is no God at all and that all this fuss about revealed religions is just the works of “inspired” men and women. But, as soon as I make this supposition, I have already destroyed the whole of mankind as I immediately see no reason why we should all be moral and responsible persons anymore, and the obvious consequence is the total destruction of the world because of unbridled greed, jealously, covetousness, selfishness, total lack of compassion, no gratitude whatsoever for goodness done to us, the triumph of falsehood, injustice and the proliferation of abominations of all kinds and of immorality. We have indeed killed GOD in our minds, hearts and way of life because we have replaced HIM with a government made up of the worst creatures this world has ever produced and whose only aim is to make us their slaves, steal the fruits of our labour, corrupt our morals, make us all people with no dignity or conscience and instruments of their evil ways. So, we live in a world where GOD is literally dead and we can see the results. The Devil has taken over completely and we see its armies on the rampage in many countries where they have planned to steal everything, kill anybody who resists, and make slaves for ever of their inhabitants, all in the name of false ideologies that have always the same result – the enrichment of an Elite and the impoverishment of the masses.

    Christians and Muslims are the two human groups that could bring balance in this world, but unfortunately most Christians have joined the forces of Evil, and too many Muslims are still collaborating with the forces of Evil. Both the Muslim and Christian sides suffer to various degrees from lack of faith and dedication in their religion, and of loyalty and bravely in their actions. I am not afraid to tell my Christian Brothers and Sisters that they take too many things for granted and that they should read their Holy Scriptures in their original texts as far as possible because a translation and an interpretation can never be regarded as the Word of GOD. Only then can they see how wrong they are on many religious issues and how similar their religion is with Islam on most of the fundamental issues.

    My intention is not to offend anybody but to praise and thank GOD.

    As for celebrating, there is actually nothing to celebrate given all the sufferings that we could have prevented if we were less selfish in our way of life. I did not celebrate the Birthday of Holy Prophet Muhammad, and maybe, GOD willing, I may use the birthday celebration of Jesus Christ as an occasion to e-evaluate the situation as far as GOD is concerned. Known as Christmas or Noël, it is so controversial that it is celebrated on the night of the 24th and 25th of December each year or by Christian Orthodox each 7th of January despite the fact that it is now amply documented that Jesus would have been born rather in or about September when shepherds were still grazing their sheep outdoors because the cold season had not yet come. But, the real date is not important. Even his birth is controversial. Has such a man ever existed?

    At least, some two billion inhabitants of this Earth claim to believe in THE ONE GOD and in JESUS the Israelite Messiah. But, unfortunately, despite so many similarities, there are so many differences between them as to who Jesus really was, as to his childhood, what he said and did, what his Divine Message was, and how he died, and so on. Islam came to point to the misunderstandings and correct the mistakes. This must not be denied. Today, more than a billion human beings accept Islam, and less than a billion accept the Gospels’ many Versions and interpretations of Christianity. Let us not be fooled by those who say there are two billion Christians on Earth. More and more Christians, more than half of Christendom, are renouncing Christianity, have become apostates, have embraced other man made ideologies, and have even become GOD haters – devilish people like Pr Richard Dawkins. This disease is affecting Muslims too as because they have been defeated by the Christian and Communist armies and lost all temporal power in the world, and been living under oppression for centuries, and their Way of Life Islam has been attacked on a daily basis by the new rulers of this world (or by the same old ruler, Satan!), and they are being persecuted, imprisoned, and slaughtered by the millions. The daily occurrences in Britain are that Muslim youths are being rounded up, Israeli style, jailed on false charges, their lives destroyed as well as those of their families, persecuted, discriminated against, terrorised, and demonised non stop by one and all.

    I am very sorry to say that Brother Ibrahim Hooper (CAIR) recently wrote a very amateurish piece “Jesus can unite Christians and Muslims” because he seems to forget that more than 90% of Christians have been indoctrinated not only to love heavenly and Earthly Apartheid Israel, but at the same time to hate Islam and Muhammad, the only “Spirit of Truth” who came to speak the truth about Jesus, the Children of Israel, the Christians. Yes, Islam (through the Muslims) failed the Christians and Mankind for more than 1400 years just like Jesus failed the Christians for nearly 2000 years! Saint Paul was not the Comforter that Jesus promised to send us, and this “Holy Ghost” who Christians claim to be for ever with them, to have cleansed them and made them born again, seems to have not been able to prevent Caesar and his Jews from ousting Christianity from our everyday life. All Christian lands are rotten to the core with all their drugs, immorality, wars, racism, and so on.

    Today, I heard Pr Texe Marrs say in his current Bible Home Church Sermon Who Is Jesus and What is True Christianity (Part 9) how Christians even during their lunch time break at work are prevented from reading their Holy Bible! One Christian employee was even fired for talking about Jesus at work because he said all who do not accept Jesus would burn in hell. Christians have no freedom to speak about their religion even in Christian countries! Why? They gave all power to the “Chosen People”! Pr Marrs says in this sermon “Mozlems…have an unclean spirit…the spirit of a beast…” What a pity! Texe Marrs, such a learned person and such a brave soul stubbornly refuses to admit the fact that Muslims do not believe in the “original sin”, and the Islamic tenet that all Creation is born in Islam, plants, animals, humans and even the laws that govern the universe and matter in general. Texe Marrs seems unable to preach his Version of Christianity without demonising Islam and Muslims and is systematically (as of possessed by the Devil!) accusing them of practicing a false religion and worshipping a false God. That blinded fool is becoming more and more dangerous as he keeps repeating that Muslims worship the “Moon God Alah”, a “black stone that fell from the sky”, that the aim of Muslim pilgrimage is to worship that black stone, “this superstitious idol of Alah … Alah is not the God of the Bible…Mohamed is not THE Messenger of Alah”. He corrects himself and says: “…no, he is the Messenger of Alah … and who is Alah? He is the synonym of the Devil. Mohamed is the Messenger of the Devil!

    Muslims who would claim that anybody who does not believe in Muhammad will burn in hell would be lying or are blinded by fanaticism in a particular religious or sectarian interpretation. This is not Islam.

    This other nonsense about a man, “the lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world” (John the Baptist in John 1:1*), giving himself as a blood sacrifice demanded by GOD in order to save Mankind and to buy their sins is yet another fabrication, and it has done much damage because once Christians start to question some aspects of the doctrine imposed upon them by their respective Churches, they completely lose faith and abandon the Way of GOD altogether. I am writing this in defence of my Christian Brothers and Sisters and not to blame them. If this is not the truth, then prove me wrong, dear Brothers and Sisters of the Faith!

    I would be a fool to even believe that GOD ever asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael (not Isaac who must have been still a toddler at the time). My more than one hundred year old huge Church Bible has a whole page illustration of Abraham raising a knife over his son, a young adolescent and not a toddler who his father made to carry a big bundle of wood for the holocaust to the bloodthirsty Israelite God. If I ever have a dream or a vision or hear a voice telling me to sacrifice my child (or even my dog!) to GOD, my immediate response would be: Vade retro Satana! Go back, Satan! Go away, you Devil, do not dare to tempt me! On the rare occasions I felt obliged to perform an exorcism, this formula worked miracles! Did Jesus not rebuke Peter in the Vulgate, Mark 8:33: vade retro me, Satana? Step back from me, Satan!

    * The Persian God Mithra was also known as “The Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world”

    Even Muslims don’t seem to really care about Jesus although millions of them bear his blessed name. And, all this fuss about the Holy “Ghost” is utterly wrong. When my son Muhammad Cédric was going to be baptised, the local priest refused because I was a Muslim. We had to wait for an Oriental priest who accepted to perform the baptism and confirmation at the same time contrary to the Roman (Latin) practice. I cannot reveal YET why, as a Muslim, I allowed my son to be baptised in a Catholic Church. All I can say is that it was not an ungodly thing to do (because of my sufficient knowledge of the deep spiritual meaning behind it) and it has proved beneficial to both father and (I hope) son.

    It is second nature to me reading, trying to understand the things of this life, thinking and writing even though I am more often just another voice crying in the wilderness. But, I just cannot help it. Like Brother Ibrahim Hooper, my intention is to unite those Christian and Muslim fools, but how? Brother Hooper seems scared of the Jews which he does not mention even once by name in his short article. Jesus failed to and cannot unite Christians and Muslims. Jesus cannot even unite the Christians, and even Muhammad cannot unite Muslims anymore! But, because I am always a person of HOPE even if I say horrible things sometimes, I will be very happy to try my best to sell Jesus (again) to those fools even if many would say he is just a myth or even believe in him as God which he clearly is not according to their own Holy Scriptures! He was an Israelite RABBI (not LORD!) who used to preach in the Temple! And, he most certainly is not GOD! This is blasphemy!

    From the Roman Catholic Apostolic Catechism

    228 “Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God is one LORD…” (Dt 6:4; Mk 12:29). “The supreme being must be unique, without equal. . . If God is not one, he is not God” (Tertullian, Adv. Marc., 1, 3, 5: PL 2, 274).

    229 Faith in God leads us to turn to him alone as our first origin and our ultimate goal, and neither to prefer anything to him nor to substitute anything for him.

    230 Even when he reveals himself, God remains a mystery beyond words: “If you understood him, it would not be God” (St. Augustine, Sermo 52, 6, 16: PL 38, 360 and Sermo 117, 3, 5: PL 38, 663).

    231 The God of our faith has revealed himself as HE WHO IS; and he has made himself known as “abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness” (Ex 34:6). God’s very being is Truth and Love.

    “HE WHO IS” is not a “proper” name like we give to ourselves. HE SIMPLY IS, HE IS… GOD. Most if not all Christians misunderstand this Semitic statement YHWH, some wrongly call the tetragrammaton, which in fact is a real word (Hebrew like Classical Arabic used only consonants) which stands for “HU WA or HUWA, meaning HE IS, HE IT IS WHO (GOD), as contained in the Qur’aan (Furqaan), and which some Jews and Christians call YAHUWAH or JEHOWAH or JEHOVAH, depending on the dialect. In Russian, they write YEGOVA. In the “Old Testament” (rejected by Jesus) GOD says to Moses: I AM, that is HE IS. As we can see, the name can very easily be corrupted. ISHO’ (YEHOSHUA, YESHUA, JOSUAH…) is the Aramaic name of what became to be known as Yesu, Jésus or Jesus and in Mauritian patois as ZÉZI (an ugly term)!” (From my letter sent to Pr Texe Marrs on Sunday 11th of July 2010)

    In the Name of God the Beneficent, the Merciful!

    “huwa l-lathi” (th pronounced like in the) = IT IS HE WHO IS ALLAH
    Holy Qur’ân 43:84

    “huwal laahu” = HE IS ALLAH (HWLH)
    Holy Qur’ân 6:3

    Although, this is very simple to understand, the entire of Christendom did not and still does not understand. They hate Arabic so much that they refuse to study it. Without Arabic there would be no Israeli Hebrew today!

    Just tell them (the Israelites) “I AM”, and Moses just told them HE IS, GOD IS, that is, he has NO NAME, HE IS JUST GOD, IT IS HE WHO IS GOD, the only One deserved to be worshipped! But, when GOD says to Moses just tell the Israelites “I AM”, and Christians understood by that that “I AM” is GOD’s name! Yet, who amongst Christians calls GOD “I AM”, that is “YA HU WAH”? They replaced that Holy “name” by a British term of nobility “LORD” (Seigneur, French, and Señor, Spanish, for nobleman) translated from the Hebrew Adonai, the Palestinian Phoenician (Lebanese) God Adonis, and rendered in Greek as Kyrios (Lord). While attending Church, I never understood why the priest and congregation repetitively used the Greek expression “Kyrie eléison”, Lord have mercy! I found out it was a fifth century short Christian Egyptian prayer for meditation purposes, later corrupted to “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God (of Israel), have mercy on me, a sinner! This “Jesus Prayer” is said to come from

    1 Chronicles 16:34:
    “…give thanks (glory) unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy (love) endureth for ever…”

    How can we expect Christians to respect their religion when the liturgy keeps changing and translations are unreliable? Even, the doctrine itself keeps changing. GOD says: no prostration before graven images and no worshipping of idols, yet Christendom made images and statues and worshipped them! Islam came to correct this idolatrous practice to be condemned later by the Christian Protestants also. So, we have enough evidence of so many changes Christians have made to the quite simple and clear message of Jesus (and of the Decalogue), what unknown authors have reported and given later the names of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John for the sake of convenience. I read somewhere that Anglicans do not even accept the Revelations (Apocalypse). The original King James Version of the Holy Bible had 73 books. Today’s King James Version has only 66 books! So, we have here a huge problem! Islam rejects everything except what can be proved to be truthful. If Christianity can do the same, we will have UNITY, not in religion but in our mission for Mankind, for the establishment of Truth, Freedom and Justice on Earth!

    In brief, my point is that there can never be any reconciliation regarding those fundamental differences between Christianity and Islam. In the opinion of more than one billion people, Islam is closer to the Message of Jesus than Christianity itself. For this very reason we see hundreds of thousands of people of all walks of life and religious denominations and even Communists (philosopher Pr Roger Garaudy) embracing Islam including countless Christians. But, we can and we should unite on what is common between us and there is enough to build the greatest moral nation on Earth, not that fake Judeo-Christian nation, but a true Christian-Islamic one. Yet, this is utopic as most of us have embraced a totally opposed way of life to that prescribed by GOD in both religions, which according to Muslims is one and the same religion, Islam. GOD all throughout the ages revealed only one religion and there are no eternally Jewish Chosen People of GOD as the Christians claim and which the Jews boast about.

    But, until and unless Christians are made to understand the common problems facing both our nations, that of Jesus and that of Muhammad, both universal religions, that is, Catholic in essence and purpose, we cannot yet speak of unity. The Catholic Judeised Catechism has to be rectified because it promotes racism and favouritism towards the Jews who today are crucifying the Palestinian people and exterminating Arab and Muslim people around the world with their unconditional help at all levels and with their financial and armament support.

    From the Roman Catholic Apostolic Catechism

    218 In the course of its history, Israel was able to discover that God had only one reason to reveal himself to them, a single motive for choosing them from among all peoples as his special possession: his sheer gratuitous love.38 And thanks to the prophets Israel understood that it was again out of love that God never stopped saving them and pardoning their unfaithfulness and sins.39

    219 God’s love for Israel is compared to a father’s love for his son. His love for his people is stronger than a mother’s for her children. God loves his people more than a bridegroom his beloved; his love will be victorious over even the worst infidelities and will extend to his most precious gift: “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son.”40

    220 God’s love is “everlasting”:41 “For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you.”42 Through Jeremiah, God declares to his people, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”43

    221 But St. John goes even further when he affirms that “God is love”:44 God’s very being is love. By sending his only Son and the Spirit of Love in the fullness of time, God has revealed his innermost secret:45 God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he has destined us to share in that exchange.

    This Jewish-Catholic Catechism is completely messed up and has practically nothing Christian in it! There is no justice! Islam says GOD is ALL-LOVING, not LOVE, and an All-Loving GOD is JUST and not a RACIST! Muslims are the real Christians of Christ, even of Paul as far as the hijaab and homosexuality are concerned! Christ said he did not bring peace in the world but a SWORD! Yet, Christendom condemns Muslims for defending themselves when attacked by Christians, Jews, Hindus and Atheists!

    Please, forgive me if I do not join the others to wish Merry “Christmas” to my Christian Brothers and Sisters because the “Mass of Christ” has always meant to me for decades the “literal eating of the body of Christ and the drinking of his blood”. For the Catholics, the bread and the wine become really the Body and the Blood of Christ which we are asked in Church to consume literally as “food” (Eucharist, transubstantiation), and which they have linked with the canonical crucifixion and resurrection of Christ!
    But, I am more than happy to celebrate with my Christian Brothers and Sisters in Faith the Birthday of Jesus Christ, the blessed son of Mary the Chaste chosen by GOD Almighty above all the women of the Earth.

    HAPPY YAUM UN NABEE ‘ISA IBN MARYAM!
    (Peace and blessings be upon him and his Blessed Mother)

    Thursday 23rd of December 2010
    The Day GOD Almighty gave me life, 65 years ago, Islam tells me.
    Soon to meet with HIM again, or simply vanish for eternity in the elements.

  13. Let us not forget there are many Christians, Jews and Muslims who seek God, who know that “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God … not just someday … but everyday …”

    So we should not despair. There are people all over the world who strive for heroic acts. Think of the Israeli firemen who crossed into Egypt to help with a hotel fire/bombing. This was detailed in National Geographic.

    It is not white vs. black vs. Mexican vs. Israeli vs. Korean vs. Catholic vs. Muslim, but rather the decent vs. the indecent. Read freely on the Internet the British Army 2035 A.D. study which fears the normal, decent Middle Class types will unite all around the world to bring about huge moral and economic changes.

    Soon we will stop the porn, the abortions, the youth running wild, the disgusting movies, the Monsanto seeds and the DU and the insane wars. All of these things can be stopped. We’ll shut them down in time because we can. Period.

    Religion is rising in nations like Brazil. Technology will enable flash mobs to mobilize to stop wicked and evil acts and votes and intentions …

    We will have the power of Jesus Christ available to us when we are willing to endure the betrayal, suffering and slander He endured. Then we will know His ultimate victory, power and miracles and goodness.

    Look for the remnant wherever you are … find God’s people, for they are scattered all around you. They are few but they are there nevertheless.

    There is no power, no elites, no Illuminatti, no CFR, no nothing that can mock the God who created the universe from nothing and hung it on nothing.

    Have faith … always … again, do not despair. Focus on Jesus and His power, not on the deeds of the wicked. God laughs at the plans of the evil men and women of this sick world.

    And yes, Merry Christmas …

  14. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, to you and yours Brother 🙂
    ..Next year in Jerusalem, and the next in Lidd and Ramleh and Haifa and Yafa, A Holy Land for all, free from the filth of the Zionazis.

    With my sincere wishes,
    Freeman 🙂

    “Next year in Jerusalem”

    This is what Jews used to steal other people’s lands!

    “Think of the Israeli firemen who crossed into Egypt to help with a hotel fire/bombing. This was detailed in National Geographic.”

    Like their Western Masters, including the 70 million Zionist Evangelicals, Israelis are mass murderers and thieves. They are monsters and not people of compassion! Israelis are the worst abominations the world has ever produced.

    “National Geographic” is an imperialist tool of conquest and propaganda and is politically biased.

  16. “The Israeli people around the world declare economic and financial war against Germany. Fourteen million Jews stand together as one man, to declare war against Germany. The Jewish wholesaler will forsake his firm, the banker his stock exchange, the merchant his commerce and the pauper his pitiful shed in order to join together in a holy war against Hitler’s people.” – Daily Express, March 24, 1933.

    “Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike, who has not already enlisted in this sacred war should do so now and here. It is not sufficient that you should buy no goods made in Germany. You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronises German ships or shipping…. we will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends.” – Samuel Undermeyer, in a Radio Broadcast on WABC, New York, August 6, 1933. Reported in the New York Times, August 7, 1933.

    “Hitler will have no war (does not want war), but we will force it on him, not this year, but soon.” – Emil Ludwig Cohn in Les Annales, June, 1934 (also quoted in his book “The New Holy Alliance”).

    “We Jews are going to bring a war on Germany.” – David A. Brown, National Chairman, United Jewish Campaign, 1934 (quoted in “I Testify Against The Jews” by Robert Edward Edmondson, page 188 and “The Jewish War of Survival” by Arnold Leese, page 52).

    On the 3rd of June, 1938, the American Hebrew boasted that they had Jews in the foremost positions of influence in Britain, Russia and France, and that these “three sons of Israel will be sending the Nazi dictator to hell.” – Joseph Trimble, the American Hebrew.

    “The Jews, taken collectively, view this war as a holy war.” – The Daily Herald, No.7450, 1939, quoted in “Reichstagsbrand, Aufklärung einer historischen Legende,” by U. Backes, K.H. Janßen, E. Jesse, H. Köhler, H. Mommsen, E Tobias.

    Zionist lackey’s heading England, France and at the head of Zionism’s carnivorous offspring, the USSR.

    A war being fought to protect Zionism.

    A war declared ‘holy’ by Zionists, who stay home and count their shekels made from war-profiteering while others spill their ‘blood and guts’ for Zionism.

    A war started by World Jewry.

    Not much has changed in the last 77 years, has it?
