Alison Weir’s Documented, ‘Against Our Better Judgment’ Draws Unexpected Attack From ‘Allies’

WeirAlison-AgainstOurBetterJudgment.jpg

Alison Weir, Executive Director of If Americans Knew and President of The Council For The National Interest, has been at the forefront of the movement for peace and justice for Palestine for over 12 years.  Alison joins us in this podcast to discuss what's going on with the US Campaign To End the Israelis Occupation's recent excommunication of her and IAK (see here for details) from their coalition.  This decision was based on a smear campaign by the leadership of Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) that did not accuse her for the facts she uses to expose the Israeli occupation of Palestine, but by attacking her with spurious arguments like guilt by association.  Anyone in the Free Palestine movement would expect this kind of attack by a Zionist organization like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), but not from organizations within in the Palestine movement.  Could it be that the attacks were made because of the impact of her new book, Against Our Better Judgment:  The hidden history of how the U.S. was used to create Israel?  Don't miss this fascinating interview with Alison Weir.

In the US, one of the most effective advocates for peace and justice in Palestine is Alison Weir of If Americans Knew (IAK).  We Hold These Truths founder, Chuck Carlson, and members discuss the recent character assassination attacks on Alison Weir, to discredit her and her organization, by the leaders of the pro-Palestinian group, Jewish Voice for Peace, for an alleged offense from five years ago.  Also, a follow-up inquisition by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation was sent to Alison Weir.  Chuck Carlson discusses the use of gatekeepers from his personal experiences that included his removal from the program at a pro-Palestinian, national student group meeting at Duke University in 2004, where he was to speak on Christian Zionism.  He was prevented from speaking by actions of the ADL.  References mentioned in podcast:  IAK-JVPIAK-US CampaignIAK open letter to JVP & USC Support petition for Alison Weir, Gilad Atzmon blogs:"The Jewish Solidarity Spin," "JVP, Alison Weir & the Hatred of the White," and "How the Israeli Government Subverted the Solidarity Movement."

Dr. Rob Dalrymple, pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church in Bakersfield, CA has written a powerful and important book, "These Brothers of Mine:  A Biblical Theology of Land and Family and a Response to Christian Zionism" that we enthusiastically recommend.  In this interview with Pastor Rob Dalrymple, he talks about his journey out of Christian Zionism to theologically challenging it.  This is a fascinating and encouraging story that all evangelical Christians need to consider. After you listen to this podcast, you'll want to buy a copy of his book for yourself, and, for your pastor.  People do wake up to Christian Zionism's divisive theology, and, Dr. Dalrymple's book will provide them with sound theology to help them to do so. An example of one lady's journey out of Christian Zionism that was mentioned in the podcast is:  "The Killing of Innocent Palestinian Children by Israel Convicts a Christian Zionist." Dr. Dalrymple's two websites are:  determine truth.com and determinetruth.wordpress.com

Israeli Siege On Gaza Continues After Attack One Year Ago

Israeli Siege On Gaza Continues After Attack One Year Ago

In this eye-opening, two minute video from UK's Channel 4 News, the on the ground comparison from after the Israeli 51 day attack on Gaza ending in August, 2014 and June, 2015, shows how very little of the damage has been repaired.  A Channel 4 story, "Destruction in Gaza - a year after massive conflict" quotes Stephanie Dujarric, a UN secretary-general spokesman, "315 days after the conflict took place, not a single totally destroyed house, of which there are over 12,000 [over 100,000 houses were damaged], has been rebuilt...This leaves some 120,000 people homeless, coming in addition to the high level of youth unemployment and lack of prospect for Gaza's youth.  This situation leaves a time bomb for the region, said the commissioner general." End the Israeli Siege on Gaza, Now!

"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you and then you win."  Can this quote from Mahatma Gandhi be applied to Israel?  Our guest, Paul Larudee, a peace activist who has tirelessly worked for peace and justice in the Holy Land, discusses this concept in our podcast.  Paul has been active in several groups including the Free Palestine Movement.  We look at the recent Freedom Flotilla III to Gaza where the lead ship (Marianne of Gothenburg Sweden) was captured by Israel, in international waters, while attempting to break the naval blockade of Gaza and deliver humanitarian aid.  Paul discusses the other movements (BDS, blocking Israeli ships, the pro-Palestinian activism on college campuses, etc.) that are challenging Israel on multiple fronts. For an excellent background report, check out our podcast:  "Super Rich Zionists Attack BDS To Save Israel." 
Pastor Greg Boyd Explains Pro-Israel Scripture Twisting

Pastor Greg Boyd Explains Pro-Israel Scripture Twisting

About 80% of evangelicals believe that the nation of Israel is still God’s chosen land. One view, known as “Christian Zionism” is the belief that the nation of Israel is still central to God’s plan – that the Jews are still God’s chosen people, that the land that was given to the nation of Israel by God is still their land by divine right, and, that anyone who tries to take it away from the Jews will incur the wrath of God.  But there are important things at stake here in the “twisted scriptures” used to justify the Christian Zionist position.  Many Christians are obstructing peace in the Middle East. Misinterpreting what the Bible says about the nation of Israel can have huge ramifications for how we think about God, the Gospel message, Jesus, and so on, says Pastor Greg Boyd of Woodland Hills Church in his powerful and unique message.  For more videos on Christian Zionism, Click Here.
