BAD LEADERSHIP STILL PLAGUES THE JEWISH PEOPLE
By Ted Pike
Since its founding in 1980, the National Prayer Network has emphasized
the biblical truth that, at Christ's Second Coming, a remnant
of Jews will repent and turn to their rejected Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Yet Satan would frustrate this greatest triumph of Christ's
love and grace. How? By destroying the Jewish people through coming
upheavals of virulent anti-semitism.
I realized early, as director of the National Prayer Network, that
in my own way, like Corrie ten Boom, I had a duty (as I believe every
Christian does) to safeguard God's great love-affair and quarrel
with the Jewish people.
Yet I saw a tremendous obstacle to their safety. In every age,
it was very clear that false Jewish leadership, by its arrogance,
racism, and anti-Christianity, actually poured fuel on smoldering
fires of resentment among the Gentiles. Beginning in pre-Christian
times, the Pharisees incited unheard-of racism in the Jewish people
causing them to behave in many ways that opposed their self-interest.
Such behavior antagonized the surrounding Gentiles. Largely as a
result of following such "blind guides" and their Talmud,
Jewish history is a litany of persecution, pogroms, expulsions and
Following Christ's example of warning against evil Jewish
leadership, I published, in 1984, my 345-page book, "Israel:
Our Duty…Our Dilemma." This was followed in 1987 by
its video equivalent, "The Other Israel." Both of these
works were very widely received by Christians. In fact, the National
Prayer Network offered a free copy of my book to 180,000 evangelical
pastors in America. Eighteen thousand responded to the offer and
were sent a copy.
Yet I soon discovered that evil Jewish leaders did not take kindly
to having their supremacy challenged. The ultra-liberal Jewish "civil
liberties" organization, "People for the American Way," founded
by Jewish TV producer Norman Lear, responded against me by their
own mass mailing to clergy in America. They tried to portray my criticism
of Jewish leadership as "anti-semitism." They tried to
whip up a national movement of Christians to repudiate me.
Their problem was that they had nothing to work with. Their four-page
attack on me was full of excellent quotations from my works, but
not a single one that could be remotely considered "anti-semitic." I
never received a single expression of disapproval from an estimated
minimum of 2-300,000 churchmen they contacted.
Instead, I took PAW's brochure and made one of my own out
of it, entitled "The Video Norman Lear Doesn't Want You
to See." It became the hottest advertising tool I ever had.
Conservatively, over the past 15 years, more than ten thousand of
my books and videos have been sold because of it.
Yes, false Jewish leadership, jealously guarding its right to deceive
and lead astray the Jewish people, will come against those, like
Jeremiah, Christ, and St. Paul, whose only motive is to deliver God's
chosen people. However, God's promise to protect those who
protect his plan of the ages remains: "No weapon that is formed
against you shall prosper." (Isa. 54:17) Norman Lear tried
to create a weapon to destroy my testimony. I seized it and used
it against him.
It is time for a host of Christian leaders, broadcasters, and educators
to join me in restraining those who enflame the world against the
Today, the enemies of the Jews are not just the Hamans and Hitlers
without. Instead, just as in Christ's day, Judaism's
worst enemies are within.
Free to broadcasters! The book that enraged Norman Lear: Rev. Ted

The National Prayer Network now has two websites. www.hatelawsexposed.org
deals exclusively with issues relating to hate crimes legislation.
www.truthtellers.org considers how false Jewish leadership imperils
the united States, Christians, and Jews.
