~ Why have I only now found out about this?
We can argue about who is most to blame,
but the facts remain the same:
Congress and the White House have been helping
to establish a theocracy in America.That's right, in America ~
the nation that used to be
a land of religious freedom.
WHAT IS A THEOCRACY?
The would-be leaders of an American theocracy:
- Want to abolish Christmas,
- Call Christians "idol worshipers,"
- Demand Christians give up their religion or be put to death,
- Preach Jesus practiced sorcery, worshiped stone idols,
- was sexually immoral,
- Want to establish a caste system in the US based on heredity and religion,
- Want to force US citizens to embrace a synthesized religion
- made for servant class.
And now, since the advent of the 9-11 war, the would-be leaders of this theocracy are stronger than ever. Little stands between them and the realization of their plans.
This may sound incredible, but it is as real as the ground beneath your feet, and as serious as a heart attack. I can document everything I have said. Let me fill you in on the details.
The would-be theocratic leaders that Congress and our presidents have been promoting are members of a sect called Chabad Lubavitch, headquartered in Brooklyn, New York.
Chabad, (sometimes spelled "Habad"), is an acronym for three Hebrew words: Chochma, Binah and Daas, which mean "wisdom, understanding and knowledge." Chabad and Lubavitch are functionally synonymous.
Chabad describes the movement; Lubavitch is the name of the town (sometimes said to be in Lithuania, sometimes in Russia) where the movement was headquartered during the nineteenth century.
Lubavitchers are a subset of the Hasidic (sometimes spelled "Chasidic") Jews. Doctrinally, Hasidic Jews rely on the Talmud, on the Zohar (the basic book of kabbalah or "calabah"), and on the Tanya (or "Hatanya") written by the founder of the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidics, Rabbi Shneur Zalman. [See Footnote 1 .]
The Chabad Lubavitchers also rely on the works of renowned Jewish teachers such as Maimonides. Of course they rely on the Torah; but note that the word "Torah," in Jewish religious discourse, is somewhat elastic.
It can denote:
(1) the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament),
(2) the Old Testament in its entirety,
(3) the Old Testament in its entirety, and the Talmud, and
(4) the entire body of Jewish religious literature.
Reviewing the above, we can see that, doctrinally, Lubavitchers are not an aberration within Judaism. They are as much part of Judaism as the Dominicans are part of the Roman Catholic Church. It would be misleading to call the Lubavitch movement a "cult" as some have done, without so naming mainstream Orthodox Judaism.
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Rebbe or Reeb
For contemporary Lubavitchers, the most admired is late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the "Lubavitcher Rebbe," or simply "the Rebbe." (Jewish people call a rabbi with whom they have a close and personal relationship their "Rebbe." Since I feel as though I have a close and personal relationship with him ~ having read much about him ~ and since I am not Jewish, I will use the Americanized form of the word and call Rabbi Schneerson "the Reeb." )
Some Lubavitchers consider the Reeb their Messiah and await for him to return from the dead; other say that the Messiah is really the Jewish people themselves. If all that is beginning to sound weird and fringy, realize that the Lubavitchers do not confine themselves to Brooklyn, New York.
They have immediate and constant access to the President of the United States: George Bush's Press Secretary, Ari Fleischer, a Reform Jew, works the Lubavitcher mission.
The most prominent backer of the Lubavitchers on Capitol Hill is Senator Joseph Lieberman (D.Conn.), an Orthodox Jew, and the former candidate for the Vice-Presidency of the United States. Jewish members of Congress regularly attend seminars conducted by a Washington DC Lubavitcher rabbi.
Past Assistant Secretary of Defense, Paul D. Wolfowitz, the Comptroller of the US Department of Defense, Dov Zakheim (an ordained Orthodox rabbi), and Stuart Eizenstat, former Deputy Treasury Secretary, are all Lubavitcer groupies.
WORLD WIDE LUBAVITCH RESOURCES
original article at:
The Jewish Virtual Library tells a similar story: "More than 3,700 emissary couples work in more than 100 countries worldwide. Since 1995, more than 400 shlichim (emissaries) were assigned to new posts and more than 500 new Chabad institution [sic] have been established, bringing the total to nearly 2,600 institutions (seminaries, day camps, schools, etc) worldwide. According to headquarters, almost one million children participated [sic] in Chabad activities worldwide in 1999."
LUBAVITCHERS ARE NOT DILETTANTES
Baruch Goldstein, the American-Israeli who shot 29 Muslims to death as they prayed during Ramadan at the al-Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron in 1994, was a Lubavitcher. Lubavitch rabbinates are hereditary, passed from father to son, sometimes from father to son-in-law:
Mass murderer Goldstein is honoured as a hero in Israel.
Goldstein's family ancestry, through his mother, went back eight generations to the Baal Hatanya founder of the Lubavitch dynasty.
Now back to Lubavitcher Ari Fleischer, the Bush press secretary who is one of the most active Lubavitchers in Washington, DC. This from the (Baltimore) Jewish Times of October 26, 2001:
"Like that of most high-ranking White House officials, press secretary Ari Fleischer's life has been an exhausting blur since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But he took a few hours off last week to pick up an award from American Friends of Lubavitch, and to help boost the group's extensive Jewish outreach efforts on Capitol Hill ~ efforts that Mr. Fleischer, a former congressional staffer, has supported from the beginning."
Bush's White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, flashing the Satanic horned Hand.
He was given the group's Young Leadership award and Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) was the night's honoree at a dinner that drew hundreds of Washington political bigwigs, Capitol Hill staffers and Washington money people.
("Ari Fleischer: Reform Lubavitch," by James Besser, Baltimore Jewish Times, 10/26/2001, V.262, N.8, p. 30. as quoted by The Jewish Tribal Review.
So we see the Lubavitchers are focused people, whether they're committing mass murder or controlling American Congress and the White House.
Pharisees at the time of Jesus. What's different? Way cooler clothes! Everything else is exactly the same.
LUBAVITCHERS ARE NOT INTEGRATIONISTS
The Lubavitchers are proselytizers, but of a different sort. They want to make all Jews ~ Reform, Conservative or Orthodox ~ hyper "Jewish." Thus we see Orthodox Jews like Lieberman and Reform Jews like Fleischer standing side-by-side working the Lubavitcher program.
Lubavitchers don't want to convert non-Jews
to Judaism ~ they want Jews to understand
Schneerson called the concepts of freedom,
This is particularly amusing, inasmuch as in the Jews led the movement to forcibly integrate the South which resulted in the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism tells us that "During the Mississippi Summer of 1964, Jews made up half of the young people who volunteered in the effort to end segregation."
"The world became black and white.
Whoever is not with us is against us."
Integration and mixed marriages
are for the Gentiles,
not the Jews.
