Patrick Henry stated that the Constitution was not for the government to restrain the people but for the people to restrain the government less the government should come to dominate our lives and our thoughts. In other words, the government was not to be a totalitarian government.
The definition of a totalitarian government is a government that subordinates the individual to the state and strictly controls all aspects of life by coercive measures. A government that believes it is their right or duty to control the thoughts, actions, and lives of the people by using coercive methods is in fact a totalitarian government. The totalitarian government says to the people that you must think the way we think, or we will punish you. This is what Karl Marx meant when he said that society should be a classless society; society should strictly conform to a singular thought pattern.
A perfect example of Marxist totalitarianism happened in San Antonio recently. The city council said you must agree with our ideas on what we determine to be proper thought and behavior, or we will punish you.
Six members of the San Antonio City Council rejected the inclusion of Chick-fil-A from the new Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement for the Sam Antonio airport. The seven-year contract for concession management at the terminal is expected to create $2.1 million in revenue for the Texas city; the motion that passed gave the green light to food shops including Smoke Shack and Local Coffee.
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Councilman Roberto Treviño said of the vote. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”
“Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport,” he continued.
This is Marxist totalitarianism and anti-American ideals of free thought and the exercise thereof. All totalitarian states take the same position the San Antonio city council took. This is the same position we see exercised by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party of today; think the way we do, or we will demonize and destroy you. They are attempting this tactic against President Trump. Unlike Fox News, Trump is fighting back and defending the United States Constitution and the mandatory element of freedom; freedom of speech and thought by all even when it does not conform to the Marxist ideology.
The American Revolution was fought because the American Colonist chose freedom, against great odds, over living under a large bureaucratic dictatorial government that believed it was the right of government to dictate to the people how they were to live their lives, what their thoughts were to be. The American Colonist believed freedom required a limited government that played a very limited role in the daily lives of the citizen and did not view itself as a charitable organization. The American Colonist believed that the individual should be free to make their own decisions and then reap the benefits of that decision or suffer the consequences. All people should have the opportunity to pursue their happiness. The government should have no role in who won or who lost nor was the government or anybody else responsible for the results of the decisions made by the individual good or bad.
“When our government was formed the founders understood that they were creating the single biggest threat to the freedoms they had just won.” Don Jans
We know this to be true because everything they did was to limit the role government would play in the lives of the people. The founders understood that as the role of government increased in the lives of the citizen, the freedom of the citizen was reduced in an exponential amount.
Here is what our founders said about government. Please note also how our founders said government was not to be a charitable organization.
Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their power; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us. Thomas Jefferson
"The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government." James Madison
"It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government. “Thomas Paine
"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." Benjamin Franklin
The role of the federal government was intended to protect the citizen for foreign enemies and foreign invaders. When the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) call for open borders they are Anti-American.
The role of the federal government was to protect our natural rights; live, liberty, and property or as Jefferson said the pursuit of happiness. When the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) call for the killing of an unborn baby, control over education, control over health care, and control over the economy they are Anti-American. When the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) advocate any income or wealth redistribution (which is charity) they are Anti-American.
If in fact freedom is to reign, the Anti-American movement (Marxist/Progressive – Democrat) movement must be exposed for what it is Anti-American and we who love freedom and independence, or the American way must let our voices and our reason be heard. We will be mocked, we will be demonized, and we will be ridiculed. This is the way of evil. We must rise above this evil and proclaim with even more fervor the American Way as demonstrated by our founders.
A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
As I read the above words, I do not read guns, I do not read weapons of war, I do not read a specified type of arms, I read the word arms. The definition of arms is weapons and ammunition; armaments.
The second amendment also reads that the purpose of the Militia is necessary for the security of a FREE state. The preservation of freedom was the reason for the Second Amendment.
"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms." Thomas Jefferson
"To disarm the people...[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them." George Mason
"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country. James Madison
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun." Patrick Henry
"For it is a truth, which the experience of ages has attested, that the people are always most in danger when the means of injuring their rights are in the possession of those of whom they entertain the least suspicion." Alexander Hamilton
"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them." Joseph Story
"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." Samuel Adams
THE VERY PURPOSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOM FROM THOSE WHO WOULD SEEK TO ENSLAVE US, FOR IT WOULD BE THE VERY PEOPLE WHO CALLED FOR US TO SURRENDER OUR ARMS THAT WERE THE MOST DECEITFUL AND DANGEROUS TO FREEDOM.
Socialism decries the call of the individual to excel. Those who financially excel must be punished and demonized. Those who set themselves apart from the masses in any field must be punished and demonized. Those who refuse to conform to the thoughts and dictates of the socialist elites must be punished and demonized. Socialism calls for society to retrench to the lowest common denominator. Capitalism calls for society to reach to the highest level it can imagine, a level that sets new standards with new ideas. This is why a socialist society, modified by any adjective you wish to use, is destructive for society and brings about poverty and a lower standard of living for all.
Socialists are self-delusional, believing that taking from those who would achieve will bring prosperity to all. The socialist believes that wealth is finite. Wealth is only finite within a socialist society. Wealth is infinite within a capitalist society because capitalism creates, socialism stagnates.
Yet. Bernie Sanders believes he and the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party can win the White House in 2020 by “explaining socialism” to Americans voters. “I think what we have to do, and I will be doing it, is to do a better job maybe in explaining what we mean by ‘socialism’ — Democratic Socialism. Obviously, my right-wing colleagues here want to paint that as authoritarianism and communism and Venezuela, and that’s nonsense,” said Sanders, who has refused to call for Venezuelan despot Nicolás Maduro to resign.
Sanders insists that Americans can afford socialism because “in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, we can provide a decent standard of living for all people. That’s just the reality. That’s not Utopian dreaming; that is a reality. Health care for all can be done and we can save money in doing it.”
Socialism according to Marx, is the abolition of human self-alienation, the return of man as a real human being. "It is the definitive resolution of the antagonism between man and nature, and between man and man. It is the true solution of the conflict between existence and essence, between objectification and self-affirmation, between freedom and necessity, between individual and species. It is a solution of the riddle of history and knows itself to be this solution". For Marx, socialism meant the social order which permits the return of man to himself, the identity between existence and essence, the overcoming of the separateness and antagonism between subject and object, the humanization of nature; it meant a world in which man is no longer a stranger among strangers, but is in his world, where he is at home.
Lenin said that socialism should be a society where the working people control their own fate, a society organized to benefit the vast majority. This view was the foundation for Lenin’s efforts in socialist construction.
The attempt to redefine Socialism has been an ongoing venture of those who would seek power and control by taking from those who would strive to excel and giving to those who believe they are victims due to their own lack of ambition and effort. You can modify socialism with the term Democratic and it still does not change the fact that socialism, by its very nature, requires an unlimited bureaucratic government that must control the individual’s as it brings about the necessary elements of socialism; total conformity to the ideology of socialism and the attempt to equalize individuals who are uniquely individual with unequal characteristics, ideas, skills, and ambitions.
Socialism defies all the essentials of unique individuals and in its quest to defy human nature, it must and always does end in a society of decay and financial collapse. Yes Bernie, your socialism is socialism and Venezuela is the inevitable end.
I hear complaint after complaint about what is happening in our country and frankly around the world. During Q & A after speaking, an all to common consensus is that things have gone to far for those of us who love freedom to turn the ship around and head toward freedom and independence. There were so many times our founders could have quit and said the fight to be free and independent is not worth the sacrifice that must be made. Thank you, Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, George Washington, and so many others who would not acquiesce to the majority of those living in the American colonies.
One of my favorite quotes is by Sam Adams when he said, “It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” Very seldom is the majority correct in any fight for freedom and independence. To many people say that this is not my fight, just leave me alone, we should go along to get along, if we give them what they want this time then they will be satisfied, and all the other excuses we hear to not confront those who wish to control our lives.
Freedom is dependent upon individuals being able to live their own lives, have their own thoughts, without government or society dictating how they must live their lives, how they must think, and how they must act. The most important right to maintain freedom is the right to freedom of speech which enables freedom of thought and enhances ideas and discussions. Any tyrant will always curb freedom of speech and thought by outright limiting speech, exercising censorship, insisting upon a unified press or media, and the skillful use of indoctrination and propaganda.
All of this is happening in the Untied States and the world today. The two most destructive forces the world has seen, destructive of freedom and independence or the individual determining their own lives and their own thoughts, are moving forward at breakneck speeds. Those destructive forces are Collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) and Islam. Both movements have as their stated goal to have all in total conformity to the ideology each professes. They both have stated as such and have proven they will use every means available to achieve their goal of world domination or their dictating the lives and thoughts of all.
Both evils are skillful in their use of propaganda and indoctrination. They both are using as their primary means of moving forward their evil, the public-school system, the media, and the entertainment industry. We see overt and covert examples of this every day. They are both very skillful in labeling any of us who oppose their evil ideology as being the evil aggressor simply because it is our goal to protect and promote freedom and independence that allows the individual to determine how they will live their lives, what their thoughts will be.
I am always asked the question, “So Don, then what can we do.”
We must want freedom and independence as much as Sam Adams wanted it. We must have the spirit of Sam Adams who often stood alone while he willed freedom and independence for all the colonists; freedom and independence meaning that each person would have the right to live their own life and to have their own thoughts.
How do we do this if we do love and want freedom and independence:
Many of you will not like it when I say this, but it is true and if we are to be free and independent, we must state the truth especially when it is unpopular. YOU ONLY UNDERSTAND THE EVILS OF COLLECTIVISM AND ISLAM BASED ON BUMPER STICKER SLOGANS. Both of these evils are permeating every aspect of American life, and often times the evil movement is being supported by those who proclaim they are adamant about promoting freedom and independence.
Therefore, you must educate yourselves. You must understand the destructive ideology of both Collectivism and Islam. You must understand their goals and their methods of implementation. Once you understand it, you must DISCUSS it with family, friends, and others. I said discuss; do not argue. Once you start to argue you have lost. Your goal is to plant seeds. One of the best ways of planting a seed is to ask questions. The goal of asking questions is to have the other person start to have enough curiosity so they will begin to do their own research. When they come back and ask you questions, you know the seed has been planted.
The evils of Collectivism and Islam have permeated our public-school system. The best and quickest way to have this corrected would be to have the public-school system collapse along with the Department of Education being eliminated. This can only be done when every single family who claims to be champions of freedom and independence steps forward and moves their children out of the union dominated public-school system and moves their children to charter schools, private schools, or home schools. Control of the schools must be returned to the local districts and teacher unions must be abolished.
These evils also control much of the media. It is very simple to detect which outlets are controlled by the “left”. Stop watching them. Stop supporting them. That does not mean you should stop seeking to learn the evil they are spewing but do it in places that does not financially reward them.
The entertainment industry provided a home for communists at the time Joe McCarthy was exposing it and it is every bit as bad now as it was then. Celebrities, actors, and other so-called entertainers are quoted by the media as if these people had any idea about what they were saying. They do not. They have learned to memorize lines and they use that skill to memorize bumper sticker slogans. Boycott movie theaters, foolish and meaningless celebrity magazines, foolish and meaning less programs like “The View,” or “CNN,” or “MSNBC.” What we learned with the football kneeling nonsense is that when we put meaningful priorities above entertainment, we can get results.
Whether or not we pass a nation of freedom and independence on to the next generation depends on whether or not we are willing to adjust our priorities and make the necessary choices. IN OTHER WORDS IT IS UP TO US. ARE WE WILLING TO MAKE THE SACRIFICES NECESSARY TO PASS FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE ON TO FUTURE AMERICAN GENERATIONS.
In our politically correct society today we are led to believe that when we say something with which the left does not agree we must apologize and denounce our core beliefs. This is a direct assault on our Constitutional right and more importantly on our God given Natural right to freedom of thought, belief, and speech. Here are some things I believe and for which I will not apologize. Have you made your list?
Socialism is evil and as Lenin said it is the gateway to communism. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is a party that is advancing socialism or the destruction of Untied States as a free capitalist nation.
Barrack Obama is a devote communist adhering to the beliefs of Marx and Lenin as his grandfather and Frank Marshall Davis taught him.
Abortion is murder.
Climate change crisis is a hoax.
There is a crisis on our southern border and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) support this because they believe it damages Trump and enhances their chances of being elected and gaining power.
Marriage is between a man and a woman.
Islam is not a religion of peace but a religion that teaches hatred, killing and enslaving of non-Muslims. It also teaches rape, pedophilia, and that physical and mental abuse of women is not only okay but desirable.
Omar is a Muslim and as such she hates Jews. That is what she was taught.
The European Union, along with all Globalists are anti-Semites. They are pro destruction of western style governments and capitalism. It is there goal to enshrine a one world government with total domination over all the peoples of the world.
There is as much evidence against Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation as there was against OJ Simpson. Arbitrary justice was then and is now being applied.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) do not believe in the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights and want to destroy freedom and bring about a Marxist totalitarian state.
Anybody who refers to themselves as a Black American, an African American, a Hispanic American, an Asian American, or uses any adjective to describe the kind of American they believe themselves to be, is not an American. An American is only an American and is not distinguished based on any other characteristic than their love for freedom and independence and freedom from a government who believes it is the right of government to control the lives and thoughts of its citizens.
The United States was founded on Judeo/Christian beliefs. We were not founded on Muslim ideology or on secular beliefs. We were told by our founders that our freedom depends on us electing virtuous people to be our representatives. We have failed to do so. Instead we have elected people void of virtue, people like Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Elijah Cummings, Paul Ryan, John McCain, Barrack Obama, and on and on. The sad truth is that we were also told that those we elect to be our representative will reflect the virtue or lack thereof of the American people.
Rule of law is distinguished from arbitrary law because it is blind to social, political, or economic position. Under rule of law the eyes of lady justice are covered and does not see an individual but applies the law equally to all. Under arbitrary law, which is the law practiced by collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, and Democrats – all virtually the same) and other tyrants, the law is applied on what would be called an as needed basis. Under arbitrary law, not only is the end result predetermined because of the individual, but it is also predetermined based on whether the result will enhance or detract from the viewpoint of the collectivist.
Our founder’s determined that we would be an individualist nation or a nation that advances the freedoms and natural rights of the individual. An individualist nation or a nation free from the tyranny of government can only exist if the concept of rule of law is practiced. It was determined at the inception of our nation that we would not be a nation with a king, emperor, or czar but we would be a nation that had as our ruler the rule of law. History has proven that as the rule of law is disregarded and arbitrary law is employed, you have a society turning from a free nation (an individualist nation) to a nation ruled by tyranny (a collectivist nation).
Testimony of Lisa Page was released that openly declares arbitrary law was employed in the case of Hillary Clinton and her clearly illegal email practices. This is the explicit testimony of Lisa Page when questioned:
"We, in fact," Page explained, "and, in fact, the Director — because, on its face, it did seem like, well, maybe there's a potential here for this to be the charge.
"And we had multiple conversations, multiple conversations with the Justice Department about charging gross negligence," she added.
Page says that the Department of Justice ended the consideration of charges being brought up against Clinton.
"The Justice Department's assessment was that it was both constitutionally vague, so that they did not actually feel that they could permissibly bring that charge," she testified.
When asked to clarify if it appeared to be a command from the DOJ, Page responded, "That's correct."
Comrade Obama’s Department of Justice (I know that is an oxymoron) ordered that, despite the evidence that said Clinton had broken the law, no charge should be brought and no indictment should be sought because it was Hillary Clinton and because this evidence and other evidence could reveal facts that would damage the Obama regimes efforts to transform the Untied Stated from a free and independent nation to a Marxist Totalitarian State.
This revelation should have been the headline in every newspaper and the lead story of every news organization. It was barely covered and then only by more conservative outlets. What was suspected, that is that the Obama regime clearly disregarded the United States Constitution and the basic but critical principle so necessary for freedom, the principle of rule of law, and instead employed arbitrary law which is fundamental to tyranny, was directly stated by one of the minions in the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) police force, the FBI.
If you support freedom and independence, this should be very disturbing to you and you should join with me and a few others to raise the whisper of concern to a clanging of insistence that all evidence and documentation revealing the anti-freedom practices of the Obama regime be made public. We must also insist that any and all responsible be tried and appropriate punishment be assigned if guilt is proven. This would include but would not be limited to Page, Strzok, McCabe, Comey, Orr, Mueller, Lynch, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Comrade Obama.
The Collectivist movement has confused mankind throughout the course of history by not making the proper distinction between a right and entitlement. The collectivist movement within the United States, (and I specifically say the Untied States because that is our primary concern but this is true of the universal collectivist movement) would have us believe that entitlements are rights. Consequently, we are told that health care is a right, that education is a right, that a basic income is a right, and that income and wealth equality are rights and are mandated, within the United States by the Constitution, and universally by the power of any government.
The concept of natural rights was discussed by people such as Thomas Aquinas, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke. A distinguishing feature of Natural rights or rights is that they are not granted by man or government, they are not enhanced by man or government, and they were always presented as not to be controlled by or limited by man or government. These rights, commonly referred to as Life, Liberty, and Property, existed prior to government and were and continue to be separate from the purview of government. An individual having a natural right is not dependent upon another individual nor does one individual having a natural right take from another individual. My right to liberty is totally independent of your right to liberty.
Common definition of Natural Rights
Natural rights are those that are not dependent on the laws or customs of any particular culture or government, and so are universal and inalienable (they cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws).
An entitlement is based on the laws of man and is totally under the purview of government. The individual who receives an entitlement and the individual who sacrifices so another can receive the entitlement is determined by government. An individual can receive only if another individual is penalized or taxed.
Definition of entitlement by the United States Senate
entitlement - A Federal program or provision of law that requires payments to any person or unit of government that meets the eligibility criteria established by law. Entitlements constitute a binding obligation on the part of the Federal Government, and eligible recipients have legal recourse if the obligation is not fulfilled. Social Security and veterans' compensation and pensions are examples of entitlement programs.
When we are told for example that health care is a right, this is a lie and we are intentionally being deceived by the collectivist. History has shown that collectivists want entitlements to be perceived as rights by the general population so those receiving will become dependent upon the collectivist and those contributing will be shamed into believing their exercise of their natural rights are greedy and taking from another. The collectivist has used this deceit to gain power and control over the masses to enhance their power and life of luxury.
A society that cherishes freedom for all, protects and defends natural rights while limiting or eliminating any government entitlements. This society has a “safety net system” and “welfare system” that is in control of families and the natural goodness and charitable attitudes of the people of a free society. A society that adheres to the concept of limited government will remain a free and prosperous nation with a high standard of living for all and a very low percentage of the population considered to be living in poverty.
A society that strives for a society dominated by government entitlements, must take from the innovator and job creator to redistribute to the general public under the guise that these entitlements are rights. This has very often been referred to as “Hope and Change.” What history has proven is that the promise of “Hope and Change” has ended with an enslaved population that has willing become servants to a tyrannical few who not only control and limit the entitlements of the servants. These tyrannical few also believe natural rights are also under their purview and come to control life, liberty, and property of all. This course always ends with the general population living in an equal status of poverty.
As you listen to the promises being made by the many collectivists in the United States today, remember that an entitlement is not a right but is a means to control and enslavement of all but the tyrannical few. When the tyrannical few have accomplished the enslavement of the masses, they will, based on history, also believe they are the grantor of natural rights, your right to life, liberty, and property.
Department of Agriculture - $3.6 billion or 15-percent decrease
Department of Education - $8.5 billion or 12.0-percent decrease, The Department of Education should be eliminated completely
Department of Energy - $31.7 billion or 11-percent decrease
Department of Health and Human Resources - $87.1 billion or 12-percent decrease, another department that should be phased out of existence with services being determined by each state
Department of Housing and Urban Development - $8.7 billion or 16.4-percent decrease, another department that should be phased out of existence with services being determined by each state
Department of the Interior -$2 billion or 14-percent decrease
Department of Justice - $698 million or 2-percent decrease
Department of Labor -$1.2 billion or 9.7-percent decrease
Department of State and Other International Programs - $12.3 billion or 23-percent decrease
Department of Transportation - $5.9 billion or 22-percent decrease, If the tax code were simplified, this Department could be very minimal
Department of the Treasury - $0.2 billion or 1-percent decrease
Corps of Engineers - $2.2 billion or 31-percent decrease
Environmental Protection Agency -$2.8 billion or 31-percent decrease
This is a step in the right direction. Thank you, President Trump. This is however contrary to the desires of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party who believes in bigger and bigger government, with higher and higher taxes until they reach the goal set forth by Marx where Individuals receive based on need as determined by the government. All GDP goes to the government and they distribute as they say is just and fair. Many establishment Republicans like the late John McCain and current Mitt Romney concur with the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
“The Prophet” (a person regarded as an inspired teacher or proclaimer of the will of God) is incorrectly used when describing Mohammed, the corrupt individual the Muslims refer to as “The Prophet.” Calling Mohammed, a prophet is incorrect because he referred to Allah who is not God the creator. Also, history shows that Mohammed was a corrupt individual. Among other things, he was a murderer, robber, and pedophile. He taught the Muslims to hate the Jews and anybody else who denounced his hatred.
Omar is a Muslim. She has been taught to not only hate the Jewish people, that makes her Anti-Semitic, but to hate all who are not Muslim. Take the time to read this wonderful article that will give you an insight into why Omar and all Muslims are Anti-Semites and haters of all non-Muslims.
Why do Muslims Hate the Jews?
By Dallas M. Roark, Ph.D.
There is a long and complicated history to the Muslim hatred of Jews. Some people seek to trace the issue back to Abraham’s two sons, Isaac and Ishmael, or Isaac’s two sons, Jacob and Esau. Whatever enmity existed between the two offspring, there was not a command of God to kill the Jews. The immense hatred of the Jews began in the time of Mohammed, by Mohammed, and it is alleged that Allah gave the command for it. The Qur’an, the hadiths, and the events in Mohammed’s life will explain the hatred that began with Mohammed and continued in his followers to this day.
1. The Qur’anic data
Q. 5:60 Say (O Muhammad to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path."
This quote is in contradiction to the verses quoted below from the Bible about the Jews as God’s chosen people. Did not Allah “remember” what he told Abraham and others? There seems to be a lot of self-serving comments in the Qur’an that reveal Mohammed’s hatred of the Jews in his area rather than the words of Yahweh.
One must understand that the Jewish rejection of the prophethood of Mohammed deeply affected him. Mohammed wanted to be accepted as a prophet and his pride could not stand the rejection.
Q. 2:61 “And when ye said: O Moses! We are weary of one kind of food; so call upon thy Lord for us that He bring forth for us of that which the earth groweth - of its herbs and its cucumbers and its corn and its lentils and its onions. He said: Would ye exchange that which is higher for that which is lower? Go down to settled country, thus ye shall get that which ye demand. And humiliation and wretchedness were stamped upon them and they were visited with wrath from Allah. That was because they disbelieved in Allah's revelations and slew the prophets wrongfully. That was for their disobedience and transgression.”
This story involves Moses and the Exodus from Egypt and the grumbling of the people for food. This happened about 2000 years before the time of Mohammed. Judgment did take place on the unbelievers who were not allowed into the Promised Land and who died in the wandering in the wilderness. Why should this story be resurrected and used to accuse the Jews in Mohammed’s time? That is irrational. The Jews in Medina did not believe Mohammed because he did not fit the demands of a prophet. For them to accept a false prophet would have been to reject their own revelation from Yahweh who did perform great miracles in rescuing the people from slavery in Egypt. Remember, Mohammed did no miracles!
Q. 2:65-66 “And ye know of those of you who broke the Sabbath, how We said unto them: Be ye apes, despised and hated! And We made it an example to their own and to succeeding generations, and an admonition to the God-fearing.”
How can this be accepted by anyone? Yahweh did not make apes out of Jews. If you read the Old Testament you will discover that Yahweh did punish disobedient people in various ways but he never defiled the image of God that he created in humans (cf. Genesis 1:26-27).
Q. 2:96 And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would be no means remove him from the doom. Allah is Seer of what they do.
This is a strange verse since it reflects on Mohammed as a greedy person. He did not work but had his followers raid caravans, plunder villages for gain, and he was to receive 20 percent of the booty. In contrast, many of the Jews were hard working farmers and orchard people who earned a living by the sweat of their brow.
Q. 5:12-13 “Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel… And because of their breaking their covenant, We have cursed them and made hard their hearts. They change words from their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished. Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them.”
Q. 5:7 “We made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We sent unto them messengers. As often as a messenger came unto them with that which their souls desired not (they became rebellious). Some (of them) they denied and some they slew.”
There are lots of Jews who were disobedient throughout the history of Israel. Yahweh judged them. Yet, nowhere is there a command for individual non-Jews to hate the Jews. In reality what the Qur’an says about the Jews is seen more widespread in the Muslims’ reactions to Christians. Hundreds of millions of Christians have died because of the brutality of Muslims through the centuries.
2. This hatred is underscored in the hadiths:
"Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews." -- Sahih Muslim 6985
And in Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177 we read: "Allah's Apostle said, The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say: 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him'."
The intolerance of Mohammed and the Muslim movement toward the Jews and the Christians is seen in the hadith, Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4366, narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattib: He heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say, “I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.” Other issues may be seen at this site.
3. The Events in Mohammed’s time and his treatment of the Jews.
Mohammed was incensed that the Jew did not accept him as a prophet. There were different tribes of Jews in the area. Mohammed had a truce with the Banu Qaynuqa tribe. He resolved to deal with them for their rejection of him as a prophet. The Muslims laid siege to them and would have killed them had it not been for the intervention of Abdullah bin Ubayy who was a Muslim. They were allowed to leave with their lives but had to turn over all their property to Mohammed. Can you imagine the gain that the Muslims got from this? And Mohammed accused the Jews of being greedy!
A second tribe, Banu Nadir, was expelled when one of their members planned to kill Mohammed but the Muslims learned of the plot and they marched against the tribe and laid siege to it. After a couple of weeks of the siege they agreed to go into exile. They took what they were able to carry themselves, but the rest became Mohammed’s property.
A third tribe, Banu Qurayza, a Jewish tribe was massacred after the battle of the Trench. The Jews did not fight for Mohammed and after the Meccans withdrew the Jewish tribe was laid siege. After 25 days they surrendered and the men were beheaded and the women and children were taken by the Muslims and sold into slavery. Reports on the number of men beheaded range from 600 to 900.
Shortly after this Mohammed attacked Khaybar which was north of Medina in an area where Jews lived. Many of the men were killed and women taken as wives. One person was tortured by building a fire on his chest to force the Jew to tell where a big treasure was hidden. Following the conquest the fruit of the land was to be shared with Mohammed and his wives; i.e., some of the Jews were allowed to stay and farm the land on shares with Mohammed getting 50 percent of the crop; but later the Jews were banished to Syria. (Cf. Sahih Muslim: Book 010, Number 3759)
4. This hatred has continued from the time of Mohammed to the present. A recent story about a Saudi textbook affirms the tradition.
A twelfth-grade Saudi textbook is teaching hatred of Jews and jihad to liberate Palestine, according to MEMRI. The report illustrates that hatred and violence continue to be themes in Saudi educational materials, putting a black mark on the conservative Islamic kingdom's desire to become a "knowledge society."
"Whoever studies the nature of the conflict between the Muslims and the Jews understands an important fact, [namely that] this is a religious conflict, not a dispute about politics or nationality, or a conflict between races or tribes, or a fight over land or country, as some describe it," states Saudi textbook Studies from the Muslim World.
The book says that the conflict will not end unless one side vanquishes the other, because "throughout Islamic history, the Jews have striven to destroy the [Islamic] religion and spread fitna [chaos] among the Muslims. The book also repeats classic anti-Semitic lies that Jews have taken control of Western media and culture, exploited their home societies, and aligned themselves with Christians to destroy Islam.” (Saudi High School Textbook Preaches Hate, Dec. 8, 2011)
There is a good bit of paranoia in these statements. When did the Jews seek to destroy Islam? The Muslims have persecuted the Jews from the time of Mohammed. They have outnumbered the Jews for centuries. Jews have been forced to depart Muslim countries so that very few are left in those countries.
5. In 2011 a survey was taken of 1010 Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza on the question who agreed with the hadith in the Hamas Charter “about the need to kill Jews hiding behind stones, trees. Seventy-three (73) percent of the 1010 Palestinians agreed with the hadith (*).
6. Following are excerpts from statements made at a rally of the Palestinian Al-Ahrar movement in Gaza, a pro-Hamas group that split from Fatah, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on November 3, 2011 (*):
“Praise be to you, our Lord. You have made our killing of the Jews an act of worship, through which we come closer to you.”
From the time of Mohammed to the present there is hatred for the Jews especially and for non-Muslims generally. How does this come about? This amounts to brain-washing on a massive scale. When a young child can appear on a TV show in the Muslim world and professes hate for the Jews this is quite unnatural. Children do not have hate to begin with in their young lives. The only way hate could occur is if the innocent child has been brainwashed. This child probably never saw a Jew or even knew what one was.
