10 October 2007
In 1988, I first publicly opposed efforts of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith to establish state and federal hate laws in America. I knew these laws would end freedom of speech, especially for Christians, in the United States as they have in other western nations. For the past 18 years, I have worked to oppose these laws and protect freedom of speech. ADL has given me the "silent treatment." But since the federal hate law was passed by the House and Senate, ADL has finally spoken out against me—publishing an 11-page online attack.
ADL is getting tough against American critics of Israel and ADL’s anti-Christian agenda. They anticipate exponential power as enforcers of a federal hate crimes gestapo in our nation, just as they enjoy in Canada . This attack on me helps prepare the public for criminalization, not just of Holocaust reductionists (who’ve been jailed under ADL’s German and Austrian hate laws) but for imprisonment of American violators of hate crimes laws -- those whom Sen. Kennedy recently described as “domestic terrorists.”
Once alleged “terrorists” like me are out of the way, mainstream evangelical leaders and pastors will follow us to prison. Hate crime laws’ ultimate goal is to silence all Christians. The federal hate law says that anyone who “aids, abets, counsels” an unstable person—whether by pulpit, talk radio, or publishing—and motivates him to do violence to a member of a federally protected group (such as a Jew or homosexual) shall be punished equally as a federal “hate criminal” alongside the active offender (Title 18, U.S.C. Sec. 2a). ADL's pending British hate bill stipulates that anyone who helps create a climate of criticism of homosexuality will receive seven years in prison.1 Soon the Bible itself and all effective preaching from it will be criminalized as “hate speech” that incites violence!
What is Anti-Semitism?
ADL accuses me of anti-Semitism, but what is it? It’s the racist belief that Jews are genetically inferior, evil, corruptive, or conspiratorial. This is what Hitler believed. It is not anti-Semitic to criticize the bad behavior of Jews, as did Jesus and the Old Testament prophets. But for ADL, vehement, repeated, or extensive criticism of the behavior of Jews or the state of Israel and its leaders is anti-Semitism. (See, The Real Motive Behind the 'Department of Global Anti-Semitism') Accordingly, ADL now vilifies me as a prominent anti-Semite. Along with former President Carter and professors Mearsheimer and Walt, I am smeared by ADL as a purveyor of anti-Semitic ideas.
ADL says Carter’s ideas stimulate anti-Semitism because he describes Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians as “abominable” and suggests that Jews dominate Congress and America’s opinion-making elite. ADL brands Mearsheimer and Walt as anti-Semitic for revealing Jews’ disproportionate power in Congress and the White House. M&W contend the Jewish lobby is primarily responsible for America’s Israel-protecting war in the Mideast. Carter, M&W and I agree that nearly 60 years of Israeli brutality against the Palestinians remains the primary incitement of Arab terrorism and Mid-East tension.
Yet I bring to this discussion another allegation which makes me, according to ADL, “virulently anti-Semitic.” I reveal and exhaustively document in my works that within the religion of Talmudic Judaism exist racist teachings that encourage Jews to believe Israel is destined to control the world under her false "messiah." Such teachings are embodied in the most revered, sacred scriptures of modern Judaism—the Talmud and Zohar (Kabbalah). These unchanging doctrines stimulate Jews to acquire excessive power and behave in ways, especially in Palestine, that incite hostility. (See, The Talmud: Scalpel that Bleeds the Mideast, Israel: On the Way to Empire in the Mideast and Coming Jewish 'Utopia' Ruled by Noahide Laws)
My 345-page book Israel : Our Duty…Our Dilemma and four major video documentaries (viewable here at video.google.com) show how the ancient Pharisees, whom Christ so vehemently attacked, hijacked Hebrew monotheism. They transformed it into a vehicle of Pharisaic self-righteousness, power, and Messianic global ambition. Their racial antagonism and separateness preserved Jewish identity (at great cost) in millennia of dispersion. It also created a backlash of anti-Semitism. Meanwhile, there is overwhelming evidence that the Pharisees' disciples worked covertly within host nations, especially during the past 225 years, attempting to undermine their Christian and later capitalistic underpinnings. (See, Jewish Activists Created Communism)
Guilt by Association?
Unable to refute anything Ted Pike has written or said over the past 23 years, ADL attacked me primarily through “guilt by association” with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, or racist groups who use my research, distribute my videos, or post my un-copywritten articles on their websites.
I am affiliated with only one organization, the National Prayer Network. ADL falsely charges that I have “a long-standing affiliation with American Free Press (AFP), an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented newspaper…Pike is an AFP staff member, having served on its Western Regional Bureau. He continues to serve on staff with several anti-Semites.”
About six years ago AFP asked me to write some articles on hate laws and referred to me as a “western correspondent.” I wrote six articles; two were published. This ended my six-week affiliation as “western correspondent.” I have never been affiliated with AFP before or since.
Similarly, ADL blames Ted Pike for linking to “anti-Semitic” websites such as AFP, Texe Marrs, "Criminal Politics," "We Hold These Truths," and Darryl Bradford Smith. I have found these websites, which contain a wealth of information not available in mainstream media, anti-Zionist but not anti-Semitic. (Because of Smith’s increasingly intemperate remarks, about four months ago I decided to no longer link to his website.)
My relationship to all talk show hosts is similarly open and informal. Sir Winston Churchill said if the devil himself would aid him to defeat Hitler, he would take his help. I wouldn’t go that far; but, considering the threat posed by Jewish supremacism, I would accept airtime even from Howard Stern! Since mainline and Christian media won’t warn against this enormous danger, I am forced to not be too picky about who helps me spread the truth.
ADL alleges, “Ted Pike maintains a broad-based network of anti-Semitic, white supremacist, and conspiracy-theory affiliations to broadcast his anti-Semitic message.” Nonsense. My policy of working with talk show hosts of any persuasion, left or right, is inspired by Jesus. The Pharisees (the literal and spiritual ancestors of ADL) said derisively of Jesus, “Why does your master eat with publicans and sinners?” (Matt. 9:11) Yet for Jesus, there was no one who, asking an audience with Him, was refused. When publicans, harlots, lepers, and even Pharisees came desiring to talk to Him, He reciprocated, sharing the good news of salvation. This past week, 12 national talk show hosts interviewed me, very curious as to why new right leaders betrayed their followers and allowed the hate bill to be passed (probably to provide President Bush and Republicans with the prestige of vetoing it). (See, Hate Bill Manipulators Should Come Clean) I talked to them and to roughly a million American listeners, but at no point did I become “linked” to a talk host because I granted an interview. Christ came to save the lost; but to do so, He had to talk to them. He did not become "affiliated" with them by so doing.
No Racism Here
Evidence of a Talmudic conspiracy against Christian civilization is overwhelming. It is easily discovered without my help! When people realize the real aim of elite Jewish activism, they tend to turn against Jews as a whole. My work, however, by its Biblical perspective and moderation, helps protect the Jewish people. I believe the Bible rebukes denigration of the Jewish race, and a truly Biblical worldview repudiates all attitudes or acts of bigotry.
Unlike actual anti-Semites, I would never assert that Talmudic hostility to Christianity comes from racial degeneracy among Jews. It results from moral decisions—the kind we all make. Modern Jewish activists make the same moral choices of Israel ’s religious leaders nearly 2,000 years ago. They rejected their true Messiah and His spiritual kingdom, and embarked on a long-term quest for another messiah to grant them physical dominion.
Someday, after the horrendous collapse of the coming one-world Zionist government, Christ will return and will, through Jewish repentance, restore a remnant of beleaguered Jews to faith in Him. Right now, all Jews need the message of Christ’s astonishing power to save. More than any other Christian leader, I influence the far (including racist) right toward this compassionate Biblical perspective.
Some say that, even if certain facts about Judaism are true, Ted Pike shouldn’t make them known because anti-Semites will use such information to defame and possibly persecute God’s chosen people. If that were true, the Bible itself should be banned. It also tells us much that is unflattering about the Jewish religion and its leaders. Many anti-Semites, in fact, have used it to malign and even persecute Jews throughout the ages.
The Bible teaches our duty before God is to speak the whole truth about evil, wherever it exists. Having done so, we are not responsible for how others may manipulate or abuse the truth.
Quotes out of Context
ADL’s attack includes several quotes from my work that may cause concern.
1. “Certainly the white Caucasian race and Christian civilization are a tremendous barrier to the eventual goal of the Talmud and Kabbalah of the Jews, which is to rule over the nations in fulfillment of scriptural prophecy and have a one-world government centering in Jerusalem, and a Messiah that will take the place of Jesus Christ in the nations.” (Interview with Hesham Tulawi)
Here ADL infers that I sympathize with white supremacists and racists. But my meaning is only this: Since the late 18th century, the industrialization and free market capitalism of the western world, primarily in the US, Great Britain, France and Germany, were developed within Caucasian, Christian civilization. To realize Talmudic, Kabalistic goals of domination over the nations, this formidable power had to be weakened or destroyed. Toward this end, Jews have predominated in leadership of anti-Christian, anti-capitalist, socialist and communist ideologies and revolutions. This included the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 and myriad shades of leftism and anti-Christianity to the present. (See, Jewish Activists Created Communism)
2. “Because the majority of Jews have habitually followed the machinations of a core of zealots or troublemakers, we are compelled to make, in a collective sense, truthful, yet often derogatory statements about the broad trends of Jewish behavior, referring to them as ‘the Jews.’”
The New Testament writers invariably describe the persecutors of the early church as “the Jews.” Of course, neither then nor now do all Jews actively oppose Christianity. (A majority does favor a liberal agenda that promotes homosexuality, abortion, and other policies that deeply oppose Christian values; 87 percent of American Jews voted for the liberal Democrats who now dominate the US House of Representatives.) (See, Why Most Jews Support the Hate Bill)
I no longer use New Testament permission to speak collectively of "the Jews." I now clearly refer to Zionist enemies of Christian civilization as “evil Jewish leaders.” I consistently distinguish between many Jews and the minority of liberal activists—primarily radiating from ADL/B’nai B’rith—who spearhead hate laws, virulent anti-Christianity in Hollywood and media, and the pirating of US foreign policy for Israel’s benefit.
3. “Yet the greatest liberation of Israel will be from her spiritual sickness and the ‘filthiness of her fornication’ which has always made her stink in the nostrils of God and men. God shall take the rebuke of His people away. No longer will the term ‘Jew’ be secretly odious in the mind of a Gentile.”
This passage from my book (pg. 266) describes God’s latter day deliverance of a Jewish remnant. Scripture says He will transform them, through their repentance, from the most anti-Christ force in the world to the most zealous believers the world has ever seen!
I merely agree with all the ancient prophets and New Testament writers that Israel, in any stage of apostasy, corrupts and offends her Gentile neighbors. St. Paul wrote of such unbelieving Jews: "For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written." (Rom. 2:24 ) Someday such reproach will be gone. ADL, of course, did not finish my passage, which quotes Jeremiah’s promise: “I will bring them health…I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth…I will cleanse them from all their iniquity.” (Jer. 33:6, 8) I conclude, “Jerusalem shall be righteous in that day because of the Spirit-filled righteousness of those who inhabit it. This is all that God ever really wanted from the Jews and now He has it.”
Does such altruism confirm ADL’s accusation that Ted Pike is guilty of “vicious anti-Semitism," hateful of the Jewish people, scheming against them in shadowy long-term alliances with anti-Semites, neo-Nazis and white supremacists? Hardly! It is remarkable that these last three quotations are the most ADL has been able to dredge up against me after 23 years of the minutest analysis of literally every word I have uttered in public.
Over two decades, hundreds of thousands, investigating my works, have discovered the truth: Ted Pike and his wife Alynn are nothing more or less than straightforward concerned Christians and Americans. We bring to everyone, both Jew and Gentile, a message of spiritual and even political salvation, a message which all who love freedom need very much to hear.
