National Prayer Network


By Rev. Ted Pike
20 Jan 06

"The Book of Daniel," now airing Friday nights on NBC, is an unprecedented assault on the time-honored ideal of the Christian family.

Star Aidan Quinn: "I'm an Episcopalian priest who struggles with a little self-medication problem and I have a 23-year old son who's gay and a 16-year-old daughter who's caught dealing pot and another son who's jumping on every high school girl he sees, and a wife who's very loving but also likes her martinis." 1

"Daniel's" dysfunctional and degenerate family, led by a weak-willed father, is permeated with suspicion and backbiting. The second episode ends with hearty laughter during family dinner when Webster's older son and secretary both boldly admitted their homosexuality. This is NBC's portrait of a "Christian" family.

Why is NBC/Universal Attacking the Christian Family?

Who's behind such negative stereotyping of millions of Christian families? "Daniel" is aired by NBC and produced by Universal Studios. Let's briefly review the history of these media giants.

In its article on motion pictures, the prestigious Encyclopedia Judaica says: "All the large Hollywood companies, with the exception of United Artists, were founded and controlled by Jews." The Judaica is also quick to credit Jews with the development of radio and television. 2

The Judaica says David Sarnoff started the first U.S. radio chain in 1926 as a service of RCA. Sarnoff also pioneered the development of color TV and built NBC into one of the big three TV networks. 3 In 1928, CBS Radio was founded by another Jew, William S. Paley, who built CBS into a multi-billion-dollar TV empire. 4 The third major TV network, ABC, was an outgrowth of an anti-trust suit against NBC in the early 1940s. Leonard Goldenson became president as ABC soared to national prestige. 5

Jewish Mastermind within NBC

Who owns and runs NBC today? Sarnoff's company was bought by General Electric in 1986. Its top administrators are mostly non-Jewish G.E. career execs.

But the real mastermind behind NBC's TV programming is Jeff Zucker. Chief executive officer of the NBC Universal Television Group, "Zucker is responsible for all programming across the company's extensive television properties, including network, news, cable, and sports and Olympics. His responsibilities also include the company's studio operations and global distribution efforts." 6 As president of NBC Entertainment since 2000, Zucker oversees the network's entire entertainment schedule. A five-time Emmy Award winner, Zucker is famed for his creation of "edgy" and immoral TV fare including Las Vegas and Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

The powerhouse behind NBC Universal's "The Book of Daniel" has got to be Jeff Zucker, a Jew.

Powerful Jews at NBC Universal also include David Zaslav, president, NBCU Cable; Jeffrey Gaspin, president, NBCU Cable Entertainment; Neal Shapiro, president, NBC News; and Marc Saperstein, senior executive vice president, human resources and communications. "The Book of Daniel" is defended by vice president of current programming Vivi Zigler. (The famous Lichter/Rothman poll of top media executives found that 59 percent were "raised in the Jewish religion.")

Jewish Control of Universal

Unlike NBC, whose ownership passed out of direct control of Jews, Universal Studios is presently owned by Edgar Bronfman Jr., heir of the Seagrams liquor empire. Bronfman is vice president of the European media colossus Vivendi and owns a controlling interest in legendary Jewish media giant MCA. Both are now incorporated into Universal. A generation ago, MCA thrust upon Christian America the incredibly blasphemous The Last Temptation of Christ. Universal Studios is presided over by Ron Meyer, a Jew.

While the creator of "The Book of Daniel" is an Irish-Cuban ex-Catholic homosexual named Jack Kenny, the comedy is produced by Universal, one of the great Jewish film production companies. A high percentage of Jewish names occur in the credits of "The Book of Daniel." This list includes writers Dava Savel, Tracy Stern, Dan E. Fesman, Harry Victor, and Blair Singer, as well as directors Mel Damski and Adam Bernstein. 7 The full list of Jews is probably greater since many in the media have adopted Gentile names.

How Should Christian America Respond?

Donald Wildmons' American Family Association has already prompted more than half a million complaints to NBC/Universal. Boycotts of sponsors are underway. In fact, many sponsors have already jumped ship, fearful of boycott from the religious right.

Yet such protest, massive as it may be, is largely ineffective in the long term. Why? Because it doesn't specify, in a way that really matters, the identity of those who corrupt America. While such protest may cause some financial discomfort to the Jewish networks, it does not incapacitate them from launching ever-new assaults on Christian values.

There is a much better way to deal with this perennial problem.

Another Way to Fight Back

In the late 1980s, Jewish MCA horrified Christian America with their blasphemous film The Last Temptation of Christ. In a very well publicized national statement, Dr. Jerry Falwell warned MCA that if they did not cancel promotion, their movie would cause a backlash of anti-Semitism. This was Falwell's way of letting America know that MCA was Jewish.

Seizing the advantage, I produced a powerful brochure titled "The Real Reason Behind the Film, The Last Temptation of Christ." It revealed MCA's Jewish ownership and production. Our National Prayer Network mailed it to 192,000 evangelical pastors in America. I received only five negative letters and sold many hundreds of copies of my book Israel: Our Duty, Our Dilemma and video The Other Israel to curious, alarmed, and very appreciative Christian leaders.

About 12 years later, a national Jewish spokesman lamented that The Last Temptation of Christ was the greatest disaster in Jewish-Christian relations of the last century.

Why did Last Temptation backfire so violently against the Jews of Hollywood, forcing them to cancel plans for even worse anti-Christ films? Not primarily because of protest letters or boycotts. Such public protests to the Jewish media are important, yet what media moguls really fear is that the Jewish source of Hollywood's anti-Christian agenda will become known. They fear such exposure will stimulate investigation of the Jewish religion, uncovering the intense hatred of Gentiles and Christians found in the Talmud and the Zohar.

MCA was forced to cancel their plans for even more anti-Christ films primarily because Jerry Falwell and National Prayer Network had the courage to say the forbidden "J" word. At last Christian leaders knew who was so intently trashing our sacred Christian symbols and values. Also, the Jewish community, embarrassed and fearful of anti-Semitism and scrutiny of the Jewish religion, doubtless pressured their media brethren to be less aggressive against Christianity. As a result, a production as blasphemous as Last Temptation has not been repeated by Hollywood.

Patriot Power

Will evangelical leaders respond to this outrage as Christ did to the Pharisees -- by speaking the whole truth? Or will they respond like the false prophets, hiding truth out of "fear of the Jews?" 8

Regardless, the average citizen has never had more power to influence large numbers of people. Through postings on the Internet, messages sent by fax or email, and as callers to talk shows, each of us can hurt the Jewish media moguls powerfully by publicly identifying them as Jewish.

This can begin a pincer movement as Hollywood is pressured by angry patriots on the right and by embarrassed Jews on the left.

This was the dynamic that ended further production of films like Last Temptation.

We can do it again.
