With incredible audacity, the government of Israel (as well as the hugely popular “We Con the World” video) claims there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. This falsehood, promoted worldwide by Israel’s PR arm, the Anti-Defamation League, is obediently repeated by Christian conservative media and leadership.
Yet over the past several weeks, three human rights organizations—Amnesty International, the International Red Cross, and Israel’s B’Tselem—have released reports rebutting Israel.
Amnesty International, the world's preeminent human rights advocacy group says:
The Red Cross, usually very reluctant to propose recommendations in politicized arenas, clearly felt morally bound to contradict the government of Israel:
Israel’s B’Tselem, a highly respected human rights watchdog even in Israel, says:
Israel (and most evangelicals) now asserts that efforts by nearly 700 activists aboard the Free Gaza flotilla to deliver much needed supplies to the Gazans, primarily concrete, building materials and medical supplies banned by Israel, constituted an act of “provocation.” The activists, they say, knew very well there was no crisis in Gaza and were only making use of such imaginary suffering to further their real goal — destruction of the state of Israel. Israel, they contend, was justified in violently assaulting their sham “humanitarian” mission.
Evangelicals, will you continue to believe ADL/Israel or accept the extensive, on-the-scene recent testimony of these reputable human rights groups? Acknowledgment of the fact that Israel is lying does not mean, of course, that you are now pro-Hamas. Amnesty International has also produced a blistering report on the many human rights violations by Hamas. They disapprove (as I do) of its terroristic, self-defeating record.
What is so wrong about the forces that trouble the Middle East?
Answer: Both Talmudic Judaism and Islam are darkened "hit back" religions. Israel is proud that it never forgets the wrongs of past centuries against Jews; claiming forgetfulness of past atrocities ensures they will happen again. Hamas not only hits back against Israel but also against the Muslim factions in Gaza which vie for control. This struggle for dominance of Jihad exists in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Pakistan. The history of Islam, as clearly revealed in the centuries of bloody Shiite/Sunni rivalry as well as the interminably violent and vindictive Iraq/Iran war, suggests that perhaps no religion equals Islam for strife and cruelty within its ranks.
What evangelicals must consider is the big picture of what primarily motivates the Turkish militants to launch their flotillas by sea, or their Gaza-bound compatriots their offensives by land. It is a fact that Israel in 1948 violently drove half of their Palestinian brethren from their lands and businesses, herding them into concentration camps, and continues to treat them despicably (as in Gaza) to this very moment. (See, "To Gaza, World More Merciful than Church") (Watch the NPN Video " Gaza Made Simple for Christians" '09)
Will ending the embargo allow Israel's enemies to smuggle arms into Israel? Of course. Should Israel's chokehold on the Gazan people be continued perpetually so that such cannot happen? No. Israel has created Arab rage by its historic magnitude-10 mistreatment of the Palestinians. It must reap what it has sown. Meanwhile, the 1.5 million people of Gaza must be given an opportunity to experience normal existence - something Israel has denied them out of its own desire to guarantee normalcy to its own 5 million citizens.
Both the evangelical church and the international community have tried over the decades to save Israel from the retributive consequences of what it has sown. The world has tried peace arbitration. The church has spiritualized away Israel's wrongdoing. But only Israel can pacify those it has offended.
If Israel had stolen the lands, businesses, orchards, and farms of 800,000 Palestinians yet treated them kindly, compensating and favoring them culturally and economically in the occupied territories, Israel could have allayed 90% of present Arab rage. Instead, for more than 60 years, Israel has persisted in mistreating and collectively punishing them. The result is Arab anger that will continue to marshal Jihadist flotillas and anti-Semitic vituperation against Israel. Having been the victim of centuries of oppression under the Ottoman Turks, followed by much worse oppression and dispossession by the Jews, they will never rest until Israel is pushed back and the lands which their forefathers nurtured for more than a millennium are again in their possession. Israel describes as "terrorism" this desire to regain what Israel stole in 1948. It says those who understand the Palestinian perspective and sympathize with it are “terrorist-sympathizers.”
Yet, despite the injustices and even terrorist outrages which Palestinian radicals have perpetrated, of the two adversaries in this conflict, it is the Palestinian people who have been most wronged, by far.
Hate crimes laws may make you a lawbreaker! Such laws, while claiming to promote tolerance, actually lead to the end of free speech! Powerful articles and NPN’s video exposé of hate crimes laws in Canada and the United States provide you with the vital tools necessary to combat this imminent threat to freedom. This video is especially important as acts of terrorism extend the power of "Big Brother" to monitor what you do, say, and think.
4 Jul 2020 - EMERGENCY ALERT
White House sources have revealed that President Trump regrets following the left-conciliating advice of his son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner regarding police reform.
They say he has abandoned Kushner’s advice on this issue, returning to his previous assertion that “systemic racism” in American police is a virtual non-issue compared to the magnitude of protection and fair play which the vast majority of police provide all citizens.

“Anti-Semitism Awareness” Bill Worse than “Equality” Bill! Good news! The Christian-threatening, LGBT- promoting “Equality Act” could not face confrontation with hostile Senate Judiciary Republicans this spring. It went nowhere. Yet Democrats could still try to get it through the Senate Judiciary. NPN will sound the alarm at Truthtellers.org if it starts to move forward.

If Jews acquire full protection as a “protected class” in America it will mean that if a Jew complains to the government that he has suffered “acute emotional trauma” as a result of “anti semitic” discrimination or criticism of his race or religion he may prompt a federal investigation. If the government agrees, the defendant will have to retain the best lawyer he can find.
