Is Israel On the Side of God?

According to David Friedman, U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the state of Israel is on the side of God, as reported in the New York Times article, "U.S. Ambassador Says Israel Is ‘on the Side of God’." In this report by Tom Compton of We Hold These Truths at an al-Quds (Jerusalem) rally to support Palestine, held in Tempe Arizona, Ambassador Friedman's notion is challenged with a provocative question. Craig Hanson of WHTT biblically answers the more important question “Which Side of God Is Israel On?”

How Pastor Chuck Baldwin Came Out of the Bondage of Christian Zionism

In this remarkable, 61 minute video, Pastor Chuck Baldwin is interviewed by Steven Ben-Nun of Israeli News Live about his journey out of a deep seated and three decades long belief that the modern state of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. What's remarkable about this interview is that Steven Ben-Nun is a Messianic (Jewish) Christian who had been under the influence of Zionism, himself. The large majority of Messianic Christians are fervent Christian Zionists. We Hold These Truths has, also, interviewed Pastor Baldwin in our podcast, "Pastor Dr. Chuck Baldwin Rejects Christian Zionism."

Open Bethlehem

We say, “Open, Bethlehem!” Sure, tourists can still enter Bethlehem from Jerusalem by transiting the wall and checkpoint that separates Israel from occupied Palestine. Most of the Christians visiting the Holy Land have been conditioned to fear and mistrust Palestinians, even Palestinian Christians. Typically, a tour bus drops the pilgrims off at one of the “dead stones” sites in the Holy Land, like the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Rarely, do these pilgrims get to interact with the local, Palestinian Christians, the “living stones,” to hear the other side of the story. Palestinian, Leila Sansour, documents how her home town, Bethlehem, is being walled in. In this 33 minute, abridged version of her compelling documentary, “Open, Bethlehem” you will learn what is happening to the birthplace of Jesus.

“One Day in Gaza” - The Documentary Blocked by Israeli Lobby

"One Day In Gaza" is a BBC documentary that has been shown in the UK, but was cancelled by PBS in the US. It was scheduled to air on May 14, 2019, the anniversary of the "Gaza March of Return" massacre, that occurred one year earlier. Sixty Palestinians in Gaza were killed and On May 14,, 2018, the same day as the dedication of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. This documentary shows both sides of what took place but there is too much damning documentation about Israel's action's that Israeli partisans don't want Americans to know about. The contention of the WHTT podcast, "Does Israel Have a Shoot to Cripple & Maim Policy Against Palestinians?" by Chuck Carlsono, is confirmed by "One Day In Gaza." An excellent analysis of the documentary is done by Alison Weir of If Americans Knew, "View the Frontline Documentary on Gaza that PBS pulled."

The Struggle to Save Al-Aqsa and the Holy Land

Filmmaker, Karriem Shabazz, lived and worked, for 15 years, in Syria and traveled throughout the region. To do his part for peace, Karriem wanted to relate the history of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Using remarkable archival video footage that he obtained from research in the region, Karriem created a compelling documentary about the little known history of what happened in the Holy Land during the past 100 years. The people of Palestine do not deserve to be forgotten or neglected. Deliberately misinformed and deceived, Americans are responsible for, and are the only people who can stop the injustice, apartheid and genocide that is being committed in this Holy Land, against the innocent people of the ancient Biblical land of Samson and Delilah, and David and Goliath. "The Struggle to Save Al-Aqsa and the Holy Lands" begins with the father of Zionism, Theodore Hertzel and ends with the last Intifada when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon provoked this bloodbath of innocent children in 2001. This film documents the impact of the spy T.E. Lawrence, Lord James Arthur Balfour, the British Evangelical Zionists, the League of Nations and the United Nations. Also, this film chronicles the massacres perpetrated by the “Israeli” occupation force, to steal more land and eliminate more of the people of Palestine. These massacres have defined the longest occupation in history from 1948 in Kafr Qasim through the 1950s, 60s and 70s to the massacre of women and children at the UN outpost in Qana, Lebanon 48 years later and is still ongoing.

The US Regime Change Game From Iran to Venezuela

With a straight face, the power brokers of the US government say they want to bring democracy to Venezuela. Never mind that Venezuela is already a democracy, and its socialist leaders have been reelected repeatedly. If you believe the MSM (Main Stream Media) and US government narrative about Venezuela, then this video interview with Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute on the Corbett Report, is not for you. If you'd like to hear a well reasoned analysis, you've picked an excellent analysis of what's going on in Venezuela. The situation in Venezuela is volatile and subject to change, but the history of regime changes by the US, elaborated by Daniel McAdams in this interview, are remarkably similar. Whatever the fate of Venezuela, this interview will provide a good foundation for understanding future US regime change operations. You, too, will be able to spot them from 1000 miles away.

Ron Paul Lashes Out at Trump Admin Over Iran Starvation Policy

Retired, constitutional Congressman Ron Paul is asking a question about the Trump administration’s ‘neoconservative’ policy regarding how to handle the situation with Iran: Is it normal? In this powerful, 4 minute video, Ron Paul notes: "It’s not often that US Government officials are honest when they talk about our foreign policy. The unprovoked 2003 attack on Iraq was called a “liberation.” The 2011 US-led destruction of Libya was a “humanitarian intervention.” And so on. So, in a way, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was refreshingly honest last week when, speaking about newly-imposed US sanctions, he told the BBC that the Iranian leadership “has to make a decision that they want their people to eat.” It was an honest admission that new US sanctions are designed to starve Iranians unless the Iranian leadership accepts US demands. His statement also reveals the lengths to which the neocons are willing to go to get their “regime change” in Iran. Just like then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said it was “worth it” that half a million Iraqi children died because of our sanctions [in the 1990's] on that country, Pompeo is letting us know that a few million dead Iranians is also “worth it” if the government in Tehran can be overthrown.

Jews Who Challenge the Israeli Narrative

Be sure to watch the entire 112  minute documentary to fully understand the difficult process these people went through to come to the conclusions they made to resist Israel's national march to national suicide. World famous Israeli conductor, Daniel Barenboim, defined the situation in Israel, perfectly, in his acceptance speech to the Israel Knesset for the Wolf Prize, one of Israel's highest honors for "achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among people ... irrespective of nationality, race, colour, religion, sex or political views." Mr. Barenboim remarked: "I am asking today with deep sorrow: Can we, despite all our achievements, ignore the intolerable gap between what the Declaration of Independence promised and what was fulfilled, the gap between the idea and the realities of Israel? Does the condition of occupation and domination over another people fit the Declaration of Independence? Is there any sense in the independence of one at the expense of the fundamental rights of the other? Can the Jewish people whose history is a record of continued suffering and relentless persecution, allow themselves to be indifferent to the rights and suffering of a neighboring people? Can the State of Israel allow itself an unrealistic dream of an ideological end to the conflict instead of pursuing a pragmatic, humanitarian one based on social justice?"

During the recent "The Great March of Return" protests in Gaza, starting in March, about 150 people have been killed and over 2000 people have been wounded by Israeli snipers. To fight back, some Palestinian protesters in Gaza decided to try out "armed" kites and helium-filled balloons as weapons that have ignited some Israeli farmlands (see here & here).

Rabbi Reacts To Trump’s Jerusalem Eternal Capital of Jewish People

Rabbi-Shapiro-03.jpgAfter President Donald Trump annouced that the US would move its embassy in Israel to the "eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem," Orthodox Rabbi Yaakov Shapiro analyzed Trump's claim: "The Jewish Nation don’t have a capital, a capital is a political concept. We are not a country, we are a people, a nation established on Torah Judaism. Yes, Jerusalem is a Holy place but that doesn’t make it our capital. It is a Zionist concept that Jews are not a religion, but a nationality/race...Zionists say that the Jews became a people when they entered Israel. Not true - it happened at Mount Sinai, before we even entered the Land of Israel. Step 1 for Zionism was to nationalize the Jewish people. Step 2 for Zionism was that they say Israel is their country...The modern state of "Israel" was founded by people who wanted to create a country in the middle east. Somehow they say that this country is the country of Jews worldwide. How? They claim to represent every Jew, a completely unfounded claim. The Jewish people had nothing to do with the creation of this state. The Zionists did. The majority of religious Jews at the time did not want Israel to represent them at the state’s founding. Ben Guirion, Israel's first Prime Minister agreed with his generation's leading Rabbis to never claim that "Israel" represents worldwide Jewry as it would be dangerous to Jews worldwide. It casts them as dually loyal. They can never be fully loyal to their home country if they are also loyal to "Israel". He later went back on his agreement." Rabbi Shapiro's sound logic is presented in this compelling, 7 minute video. Reference: "Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of ‘Jewish people’ is assault on my religion — Queens rabbi."

Governments are and will be desperate to control the Cryptocurrencies’ phenomena; they have no choice.  This absence of threat from them is positive for Bitcoin investors."

Voices in Palestine Crying Out for Peace & Justice: Qavi

Mohammad Abdul Qavi was an activist for peace and justice for Palestinians. We met Qavi at the El Beit Guest House in Beit Sahour, the city next to Bethlehem, Palestine, where a group of us on the month long, Iktashef experience, sponsored by the Holy Land Trust, were staying. Qavi, who was from London, had chosen the El Beit Guest House as his retirement home and had been living there for over 6 years. This interview with this remarkable and compassionate man, who practiced only non-violent resistance, was conducted on August 14, 2017, less than two weeks before his passing on August 27, 2017. Qavi, a true friend to Palestinians will be sorely missed (26 minutes)

Challenging A War Willing Church

CCC-20170507-16.jpgCalvaryCommunity-2002-Nov-02.jpgWhy is it that the teachings of Jesus, like "Love your neighbor as you love yourself" and "Blessed Are the Peacemakers," take a back seat to millions of Christians that are influenced by the religious dogma known as Christian Zionism? In this short video, We Hold These Truths returns to Calvary Community Church (CCC) in Phoenix, AZ. One of our first vigils was held in front of this church in November of 2002, four months before the second war on Iraq started. Back in 2002, our signs like "Choose Life Not War," "Who Would Jesus Bomb?" "Blessed Are The Peacemakers," and "No More Wars For Israel" must have befuddled the congregants at CCC, because they came out and raised the Israeli flag. The occasion for this most recent vigil at CCC was the hosting of a "God's Heart For Israel" event sponsored by the organization Together For Israel. To demonstrate the war willingness of Christian Zionists to accept wars to protect Israel, the "War Prayer" by Christian Zionist preacher, John Hagee concludes this 4 minute video. To better understand the theology of Christian Zionism, watch our award winning documentary: "Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I."

Once Again US Proves It Is Israel’s Number One Enabler

Haley_Nikki-03.jpgThe US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, explained at the 2017 AIPAC convention how she led the charge to cover Israel's apartheid tracks as documented by the UN's report,  "Israeli Practices Toward the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid," This report clearly exposed Israel as an apartheid state. And, most of the world already knows this. Armed with no arguments against the carefully researched and documented report, Haley resorted to attacking one of the report's authors, Richard Falk, a respected international law and international relations scholar who taught at Princeton University for 40 years. Richard Falk also happens to be Jewish. An ad hominem attack like this on a Zionist Jew would have been met with cries of antisemitism and calls for a resignation. This poweful, 4 minute video of UN Ambassador Haley's appearance at the AIPAC convention on March 27, 2017 was put together by our friends and allies at If Americans Knew. For details and analysis of the UN report, listen to WHTT's podcasts, "The Israeli Emperor Has No Clothes, Part I - The Unveiling" & Part II - Exposing the Facts."

Jewish Power Myth or Reality?

Dershowitz_Alan-04.jpgIn his recent address to the ultra-Zionist and war-mongering Stand With Us, Alan Dershowitz said; “people say Jews are too powerful, too strong, too rich, we control the media, we’ve too much this, too much that and we often apologetically deny our strength and our power.
