JEWISH ACTIVIST NOW HEADS STATE DEPARTMENT'S
OF GLOBAL ANTI-SEMITISM
By Rev. Ted Pike
Vowing to combat global anti-Semitism by every means at his disposal,
veteran Jewish activist Gregg Rickman was recently sworn in by Condoleezza
Rice as head of the State Department's office of global anti-Semitism.
Jewish activists view Rickman's appointment as a victory against
a U.S. State Department which had protested establishment of yet
another Jewish special interest agency. Several years ago the State
Department claimed it already adequately monitored global human rights
abuses and promoted Holocaust remembrance. Yet Jewish lobbyists persuaded
Congress 18 months ago to create a special federal agency dedicated
solely to silencing "virulent criticism" of Israel and
matters Jewish or questioning the six million figure of alleged Holocaust
UNITING SYNAGOGUE WITH STATE DEPARTMENT
Rickman's appointment, as a veteran protagonist of all things Jewish,
makes it clear that the office of global anti-Semitism will not be
bipartisan. Rather, as I have warned since its inception, it is merely
a front for ADL/B'nai B'rith's anti-Christian hate laws agenda --
a foundation upon which to federalize and internationalize persecution
Are you still unfamiliar with this new thought crimes bureaucracy
in our midst? Are you aware of its many perverse definitions of anti-Semitism?
Here is the article I published last summer on this subject. It answers
many questions yet poses many more concerning the "Office to
Monitor and Control Anti-Semitism," mandated as H.R. 4230 by
THE REAL MOTIVE BEHIND THE
“DEPARTMENT OF GLOBAL ANTI-SEMITISM”
By Rev. Ted Pike
On October 16, 2004 President Bush signed into law the
Global Anti-Semitism Review Act. It establishes a special department
within the U.S. State Department to monitor global anti-Semitism,
reporting annually to Congress.
This is more “Hate Crimes” legislation, orchestrated
by the international Jewish religious, educational, and fraternal
organization, B’nai B’rith, and its Anti-Defamation League.
The new “Department of Global Anti-Semitism” is designed
to make critics of Israel not only into “anti-Semites” but
ultimately into “domestic terrorists.”
But first, what is anti-Semitism? Simple: It is the racist belief
that Jews, because of heredity, are evil, greedy, corrupting, subversive,
degenerate, etc. Hitler believed this. So do the KKK and certain “Christian
identity” and white supremacist groups.
Such dehumanization of Jews is evil, un-Christian, un-American.
On the other hand, if the actions of individual Jews, Jewish institutions,
Jewish religious or secular leaders, or the nation Israel have been
evil, then vehement criticism is not anti-Semitic. It is courageous
and laudable. Certainly, the Biblical prophets, including Christ,
engaged in vitriolic criticism of the sinful nation Israel and its
false leaders. No one considers them anti-Semitic.
TWISTED DEFINITIONS OF “ANTI-SEMITISM”
However, in its “Report on Global Anti-Semitism” and “Global
Anti-Semitism Report,” the U.S. State Department ignores the
above perspectives. Here is a list of beliefs or activities the U.S.
government now considers anti-Semitic:
- Any assertion “that the Jewish community controls government,
the media, international business and the financial world” is
- “Strong anti-Israel sentiment” is anti-Semitic.
- “Virulent criticism” of Israel’s leaders, past
or present, is anti-Semitic. According to the State Department,
anti-Semitism occurs when a swastika is portrayed in a cartoon
decrying the behavior of a past or present Zionist leader. Thus,
a cartoon that includes a swastika to criticize Ariel Sharon’s
brutal 2002 invasion of the West Bank, raining “hell-fire” missiles
on hapless Palestinian men, women and children, is anti-Semitic.
Similarly, when the word “Zionazi” is used to describe
saturation bombing in Lebanon in 1982 (killing 17,500 innocent
refugees), it is also “anti-Semitic.”
- Criticism of the Jewish religion or its religious leaders or literature
(especially the Talmud and Kabbalah) is anti-Semitic.
- Criticism of the U.S. government and Congress for being under undue
influence by the Jewish-Zionist community (including AIPAC) is
- Criticism of the Jewish-Zionist community for promoting globalism
(the “New World Order”) is anti-Semitic.
- Blaming Jewish leaders and their followers for inciting the Roman
crucifixion of Christ is anti-Semitic.
- Diminishing the “six million” figure of Holocaust
victims is anti-Semitic.
- Calling Israel a “racist” state is anti-Semitic.
- Asserting that there exists a “Zionist Conspiracy” is
- Claiming that Jews and their leaders created the Bolshevik Revolution
in Russia is anti-Semitic.
- Making “derogatory statements about Jewish persons” is
- Denying spiritually disobedient Jews the biblical right to re-occupy
Palestine is anti-Semitic.
- Alleging that Mossad was behind the 9/11 attack is anti-Semitic.
ANTI-SEMITISM IS A “HATE CRIME”
In the Global Anti-Semitism Report, State Department spokespersons
Ambassador Edward O’Donnell and the head of the office of global
anti-Semitism, Ambassador Michael B. Kozak, defend the State Department’s
definitions. O’Donnell’s statement that he wants to “end
all anti-Semitism and other hate crimes” reveals that he considers
anti-Semitism a hate crime. Presumably, he would like such a “crime” to
These State Department reports repeatedly equate “strong,
anti-Israel sentiment” and criticism of matters Jewish with “hate.” They
give no recognition to the possibility that such criticism might
be sincerely motivated not by hate but by moral indignation or even
love for the Jewish people.
The Report on Global Anti-Semitism repeatedly calls for passage,
both nationally and internationally, of “hate crime” legislation.
These laws, the brainchild of B’nai B’rith/ADL, also
have as their ultimate goal making it a “hate crime” to
criticize Jews, matters Jewish, or the state of Israel.
The Report on Global Anti-Semitism reeks with B’nai B’rith/ADL
logic, phraseology, and evidence of their incredible worldwide organizational
and statistic-gathering capacities. It contains thirty-three pages
of minute documentation of “anti-Semitic incidents” in
fifty-eight countries of the world, documentation which only B’nai
B’rith/ADL, with its offices in more than fifty countries,
could compile or even be that vitally interested in. Without a doubt,
as with hate laws, this Global Anti-Semitism Review Act is their
CRITICISM-FREE ZONE FOR JEWS
Thus, the Department of Anti-Semitism, applauded and advised by
B’nai B’rith/ADL, is working to create a worldwide “criticism-free
zone” for Jews in the “New World Order” that is
coming. This report ignores whether criticisms of matters Jewish
are true. What must be defended are the sensitivities of the Jewish
people! Consequently, relating such unflattering realities as the
anti-Christian, anti-Gentile contents of the Talmud and Kabbalah,
Jewish origins of bolshevism, Jewish dominance of Hollywood and the
media, Jewish control of Congress through AIPAC, Zionist atrocities
and abrasiveness in the Middle East is anti-Semitic. It is “hate.” It
does not matter that such facts can be easily and extensively documented,
often from impeccable Jewish sources such as the Encyclopedia Judaica.
All such anti-Semitism, this report says, is a “scourge,” an “intolerable
burden,” which “for an increasingly interdependent world…must
On the other hand, according to the U.S. State Department, there
does exist some possibility that “objective criticism” of
Israel and its leaders can be tolerated - that is, just as long as
such criticism does not “cross the line” and become “strong
anti-Israel sentiment” and “virulent.” Such criticism
should not “demonize” Jews, Jewish religious or political
leaders, or the state of Israel.
However, what may be considered “virulence” or “demonization” by
Zionists may be seen as nothing more than salty truth-telling by
critics of Israel. Hypocritically, the State Department itself is
not above “demonizing” strong critics of Israel in the
most “virulent” terms as a “plague” and “scourge” on
TURNING “ANTI-SEMITISM” INTO “DOMESTIC
The State Department’s twisted definition of anti-Semitism
provides exponential opportunities to persecute Bible-believing Christians,
anti-war activists, Moslems, as well as publishers and broadcasters
in the years ahead. In fact, by turning “strong” criticism
of the American/Zionist coalition into “anti-Semitism and other
hate crimes,” the State Department opens the door to eventual
characterization of those who criticize Israel as not only anti-Semites
but also as “domestic terrorists.”
Here’s how it can be done:
Today, those who raise funds in America to support America’s
and Israel’s terrorist enemies are arrested as “domestic
terrorists.” But what if articulate Americans provided something
else, potentially even more valuable to Israel’s enemies: “strong
criticism” of Israel? Such could weaken Israel morally in the
sight of the world, giving justification to the claims of her terrorist
enemies. Should they also be punished?
As the Second World War was beginning in 1939, Charles Lindberg
was publicly critical of international Jews for inveigling America
into a war to destroy Hitler. Lindberg believed that Hitler should
be allowed to do what he wanted to do most, move east and destroy “Jewish
Communism” in Russia.
In 1944, 30 Americans, who agreed with
Lindberg, were arrested for the crime of “sedition,” weakening
in the fight against fascism. Later investigation under the Freedom
of Information Act revealed that the ADL, attempting to equate
criticism of international Jews with Nazism, had entirely created
the FBI case.
Records revealed that the ADL was “only warming up” by
pursuing sedition convictions against 30 innocent Americans. Their
ultimate ambition was to imprison prominent critics of evil Jewish
leadership, especially Charles Lindberg. Fortunately, ADL’s
attempt to transform 30 critics of international Jews into “Nazis” failed
when the judge died and the case was dissolved.
Today, America and Israel are allies in the “war on terror.” Tomorrow,
especially if the war on terror intensifies and America and Israel
cooperate even more closely, criticism of America’s ally in
the war on terrorism may be construed as “aiding and abetting
the enemy.” Such “strong criticism” or anti-Semitism
may be seen as not only weakening Israel, but America itself.
Turning millions of Americans into anti-Semites for criticizing
Israel is thus a transition toward ADL’s ultimate goal: making
such persons “enemies of the war on terror,” i.e., “domestic
They then can be prosecuted under Homeland Security laws.
CANADA: ALREADY MAKING “ANTI-SEMITES” INTO “DOMESTIC
In Canada, we are seeing exactly this happen. Ernst Zundel is a
Holocaust revisionist who doubts that a full six million Jews were
deliberately murdered by the Nazis, largely by gassing. He asserts
that untold numbers of Jews in German internment camps, especially
in the last years of the war, died not in gas chambers, but as a
result of massive, well-documented typhus epidemics, which also killed
countless Poles, Gypsies, Russians, etc. Yet in Canada, thanks to
ADL/B’nai B’rith, it is a “hate crime” to
lesson to any degree the six million figure of Holocaust dead, or
that most of them died in gas chambers. Such diminishment is anti-Semitism,
a “hate crime” punishable by harsh fines and imprisonment.
Several years ago Zundel was deported from his home in Tennessee
back to Canada to spend more than two years in solitary confinement
in a Canadian prison. He was then deported back to his native Germany
where he remains in prison.
Under what charge have Canadian authorities been holding him?
You guessed it. He is a “terrorist threat!”
So it will be for millions of Americans tomorrow if ADL/B’nai
B’rith have their way and the Department of Anti-Semitism’s
twisted definitions of anti-Semitism are allowed to stand.
The Department of Global Anti-Semitism is informing the world who
the “domestic terrorists” of tomorrow will be.
They are you and I.
