The Land: Israel And The Palestinians: And The U.S. And The Native Indians

 

Most people in the ‘wired’ world of today know about the struggles in the Holy Lands of Israel between the Nation of Israel and the displaced Palestinian population. For those of you who do not know the back story of this issue I will try to condense this issue into just a few sentences so as to not make a book out of this article. When World War Two broke out the Ottoman Empire ruled the current land of Israel. After the war the British took control of that region but in the U.N. in 1947 a resolution was passed to recreate the Nation of Israel so that the displaced Jewish population could have a Nation of their own again, and this came about in 1948. Because of all the turmoil in the U.N. about this issue the Jewish people were only given a small sliver of the land that they used to call home for over 2,000 years. The British had made an agreement with the U.N. that they would pull out of Palestine in May of 1948 and then give this land to the Jewish people for their homeland. It is sad that the people who lived there were displaced, these folks years later became known as the Palestinians, refugees, a people with no ‘home’. These ‘Refugees’ were eventually taken in by Jordan but were kicked out in 1967, again making them homeless. The Islamic people of the Middle-East own about 99% of the land in this region of the world yet none of them (except for the short stint in Jordan) would let them into their countries. Either this issue shows that the ‘Palestinians people’ are very lousy guests, and/or the Islamic countries of the region are really lousy hosts, or possibly both? I say that because a brother is suppose to take in and to help when their brothers and sisters are in need but the Islamic Nations have not done that.

 

In 1948 on the day that the British completed their pull out the tiny newborn Nation of Israel was attacked by all of their Arab neighbors in an attempt to push all of the Jewish people into the Mediterranean Sea. To make a long story shorter, the people of Israel won that war but just 19 years later the Arab Nations of the Middle-East attacked Israel once again in what has become know as the Six Day War. In this war which Israel won they captured a lot more land from the Arab population who had attacked Israel. Among the lands captured was the Golan Heights in the north and they captured the rest of Jerusalem, to the south they also captured the West Bank and Gaza all the way down to the border with Egypt. The people who started the war who were in the lands that Israel recovered were also now displaced adding to a lousy situation for the Islamic people who caused the war. By my understanding it is the land that Israel recaptured in that six-day war of 1967 that has been causing the biggest conflict with the U.N. (among others). It is this land that has become known as the “occupied territories”. Some world leaders think that Israel has no rights to this land and should not build anything on it.

 

Israel was given a much larger piece of the land by God Himself somewhere around the human year of 1,800 B.C.. They lived on this land until about the year 630 A.D. when Mohammad’s army murdered their way through many countries including the land that belonged to Israel. So, here is where I want to start making some comparisons with land issues inside the U.S.. The Islamic people in Palestine had lived in what is now Israel for about 1,400 years before the U.N. gave some of it back to Israel, it is easy to understand why the ‘displaced’ people are mad at the people who now live on that land. Yet they refuse to accept the fact that there was ever a Nation of Israel before the time of Mohammad no matter how much evidence they are shown. What I am saying is the people of Israel simply took back some of what was their own in 1948 and then again in 1967. In 2005 the Israeli government in an attempt for peace gave back the ‘West Bank’ and the Gaza Strip so that the Palestinian people could have a home of their own since none of the Arab countries would ever allow them to settle in any of their countries. Land for peace is what this event was called, that concept failed, all it did was to give Israel’s haters closer Bases in which to attack Israel from. I have often wondered why if there is going to be a ‘two nation’ reality why can’t the ‘West Bank’ be given “Statehood” status? With Hamas ruling the Gaza Strip there is no way to allow them to become a State. So, who’s land is it in your eyes?

 

Now I would like to talk about the Native American ‘Indians’ and their rights to the land that we call America. A little over 500 years ago Europeans discovered North America and started settling it as if the land was barren of other human beings. Most Europeans did not consider the Indian people who were already here, and had been for thousands of years, as being humans, they demonized them as nothing but Savages. For the next 400 years Europeans kept marching west, killing the Indian people and taking their lands. By the late 1800’s America reached from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and the Native Americans had almost been exterminated. When the newspapers in the east started showing and telling the people what was being done to the Indian people they raised such a ruckus that the extermination concept ended and the concept of Reservations began. The Indian people were ‘given’ the worst of the worst lands to be exiled upon, these were lands that the white man didn’t want, so the Indian people were forced to live there.

 

I am going to make a small example for the purpose of easy clarity. There is a large Navajo Reservation in southwest New Mexico and part of eastern Arizona. I am going to use them in this example. When Europeans discovered what is today the State of New Mexico less than 300 years ago they began ‘settling’ it by removing the Native Americans who had lived there for thousands of years. If today the Navajo people decided that they were tired of living on their Reservation and told the white, black and Mexican people to move off of their land or they would be removed by the Navajo Nation, what do you think would be the result? I know this would not happen, it’s just a conversation point, but what if the U.S. Government said, okay we agree with you so all non-Indian people have to leave the state of New Mexico, what do you think would happen? Now put that concept to all of the 50 States, if the United Nations and the World Court ruled in favor of the Native Americans and they told all of us non-indigenous people to pack up and get off of the Native Americans land, where would we all go? I honestly believe that the Native American people do have the right to tell us all to get off of their land, after all it was stolen by the end of a gun from them. Now back to Israel and the Palestinian people, the Islamic people stole the land  from the Jewish people at the point of a blade, they either had to leave their homes or die. What I am saying is that there is no such thing as Israel’s “occupation” of Arab lands, there is no such thing as Israel building on occupied lands. Just as the correct thing to do here in North America is to give back the occupied lands to its rightful owners because they were well established here long before Europeans crossed the Atlantic, the people of Islam should give back all of the land that was Israel before they were stolen from them. Here in North America there is an occupation” going on right now and has been for about 500 years. In Israel the only “occupation” going on is in the lands where believers of Islam are occupying land that belongs to Israel, it is not the other way around. I hope you liked the article, I am just trying to get people to think and to consider the truth of history.

Revelation Chapter #5

 

Revelation Chapter #5

The time frame of chapter number five occurs right after the Rapture (the second advent/coming) of Christ. So, at this time “the Church” which is the “Bride of Christ” is in Heaven. This chapter is the start of the 7 year Tribulation period here on Earth. The Tribulation itself will be covered in chapters 6-18. This fifth chapter only has 14 verses in it, so, like chapter number four, it is quite short. In this chapter verses 1-4 we will discuss “The Book with the Seven Seals.” In verses 5-10 the subject matter is the Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua) who is “the Lamb of God” who shed His blood to save us all. Also here Jesus is referred to as “the Lion of the Tribe of Juda.” In verses 11 and 12 we find where the Angels are singing songs of praise to the Lord Jesus (Yeshua). This chapter finishes off with the last two verses with all the Creatures in Heaven and Earth giving praise to the Saviour who lives for ever and ever.

Now, if you would, please get out a Bible if you happen to have one and follow along with me on these 14 verses. “And I (the Apostle John) saw in the right hand of Him that sat upon the Throne a book written within and on it’s back side which was sealed with Seven Seals.”

“And I saw a strong Angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the Book and to undo the Seals there of?”

“And no man in Heaven nor in Earth, neither under the Earth, was able to open the Book, nor to look thereon.”

“And I wept bitterly because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, nor to look upon it.”

“And one of the Elders (one of the 24 with the Golden Crowns) said to me , weep not: behold, the Lion of the Tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has overcome and can open the Book and is able to undo the Seven Seals thereof.”

“And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the Throne and of the four Beasts and in the midst of the Elders, stood a Lamb as if it had been slain having seven Horns and seven Eyes, which are the Seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the Earth.” (The seven Spirits are the seven Archangels of God who normally surround the Throne of God in Heaven.)

“And He came and took the Book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the Throne.”

“And when He had taken the Book, the four Beasts and the 24 Elders fell down before the Lamb, every one of them having harps and golden bowls full of incense which is the prayers of the Saints.”

“And they sang a new song saying, You are worthy to take the Book and to open the Seals thereof. For You were slain and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred and tongue, and people and Nation.”

“And You have made us unto our God, Kings and Priests, and we shall Reign on the Earth.”

“And I beheld and I heard the voice of many Angels round about the Throne and the Beasts and the Elders, and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands.”

“They were saying with a loud voice, worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessings.”

“And every Creature that was in Heaven and on the Earth and under the Earth and those that were in the Sea and all that are in them I heard saying, blessings and honor and glory and power, be unto Him that sits upon the Throne and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.”

“And the four Beasts said, Amen, and the 24 Elders fell down and worshiped Him that lives for ever and ever.”

Okay friends that is the 14 verses, even though this is a short chapter it does give us quite a bit of information. I am going to take a few moments to breakdown this information to try to help folks who are new to this Book to understand a little bit more of its meanings. The first thing that we must understand it that Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and He is the ‘Lamb of God’ the Father (Yahweh). Jesus (Yeshua) is also the centerpiece of this chapter and of the whole Book of Revelation. In verses 1-4 the subject of discussion is the Book with the Seven Seals. This Book was in the hands of He who sat upon the Throne, this “He” is/was God the Father (Yahweh) and the only one that was worthy to unseal the Seven Seals and to be able to open the Book was the “Lamb of God” which was/is Jesus (Yeshua). Scripture does not say exactly what this Book is called though a lot of folks believe this is the “Book of Judgement.” There are also many folks, like myself, who believe that it is basically a “Title to or a Deed” to this world, remember, Jesus bought this World with His own blood, He owns it. If you would, please read in the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament chapter 7 verses 13 & 14, this should help clarify what I am speaking of.

In verse 7 Jesus came and took this Book out of the hand of the Father. In verse 8 Jesus had this book in His hand and the 4 Beasts and the 24 Elders fell down before Him and worshiped Him. There is something else in verse 8 that needs to be clarified and that is about the Bowls of Incense that each of the Elders had and we are told that these contained the prayers of the Saints. Saints are simply the people who are true believers and followers of Christ. Before the Tribulation Jesus was/is the Intercessor (the go between) for the faithful to “The Father” but at that time the Church is in Heaven so Jesus transforms to the role of Judge. This is an event as this is when the Tribulation phase begins.

I would like us all to take a close look at chapter 5 verse 9. When Jesus was killed He redeemed all of us to the Holy Father by His own blood. If Jesus had not done this we would all just be the walking dead, spiritually speaking. If the Jews of Jerusalem had not had Jesus killed, the only ones who would have been able to be saved would have been the Jewish people with 100% Hebrew blood. Because God the Father hardened the hearts of the people so that they would do this horrible thing, all people, all of us today, can be saved from the eternal fires of Hell. This verse and this chapter tell us that if you are a racist who believes that only one skin color or one nationality is going to be saved and that all the ‘other people’ are going to Hell, you need to wake up and read the Scriptures because what you are saying is contrary to the teachings of God. What part of this message is beyond your ability to understand? The blood of Jesus redeemed people of “every kindred, of all people, of all languages from every nation.” Folks, there is no one skin color that is ‘privileged’ above another!

In verse number 10 it reads “and He (Jesus) has made us to be unto God Kings and Priests.” Please also note the final sentence. “We shall reign upon the Earth.” Many people (I believe, through their ego’s) believe that this sentence is speaking to everyone who is faithful to the end of their lives to Christ. I do not believe this, think about it, this idea would create a situation where the Earth would be full of Chiefs, with no Indians. I believe that this statement was to these 24 Elders. A lot of Scriptures are misunderstood because people do not take into account the situations of who is talking to whom about what, and what the issue at the time of the conversations. Way too often people want to take Scriptures out of their context so that it will apply directly to themselves when the conversation was much more narrow in its context. The last sentence in this verse the “We shall reign upon the Earth” throws a lot off of their personal train track because they have been being taught in their Churches that  we “God’s Saints” will live forever in Heaven with Christ Jesus. The Scriptures do not teach that! The Scriptures teach plainly that Jesus will rule on the Earth from the new Jerusalem that will come down out of Heaven, remember, the Earth is God’s footstool! The Earth is where God/Jesus will create a new Earth and this will be His Kingdom.

In verses 11 and 12 John simply tells of the many thousands of Angels who were worshiping  singing praise to the Lamb of God (the Christ, Jesus). John simply was telling us that there were to many Angels for him to count. In the last two verses 13 & 14 John speaks of all the Creatures in Heaven and on Earth and those under the Earth whom were also singing praise to the Lamb of God who “lives for ever and ever.” Folks, I hope that this breakdown was helpful to you in your understanding of this chapter. Hopefully I will be able to get chapter #6 written out and broken down for you within the next couple of days. Until then, God’s peace and love to you and your’s. Shalom

Published October 7, 2016

LAS VEGAS – The American Indian Gaming Association (AGA) in partnership with the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) developed a strong tribal gaming educational track at the 2016 Global Gaming Expo (G2E), and one of the major highlights was the Tribal Leaders Roundtable on Tuesday, September 27 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

The “Tribal Gaming Round table,” panel moderated by NIGA Chairman Ernie Stevens, Jr. with tribal leadership panelist that included Brian Patterson, President of the United South East Tribes (USET), Louis Manual, Chairman of the Arizona Indian Gaming Association and Bobby Soper, President and CEO, Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority took place to discuss some of the pressing issues Gaming Tribes are facing.
Stevens opened the panel by saying, “I am excited to be here. It is so powerful when you sit amongst the Indian gaming world and you look around to see so many from the Indian gaming regions represented in one room.  I am excited about where this industry has come.   From the days of educating and fighting for our right to Game to today, where we had a historical coming together of commercial and tribal gaming on the main stage of G2E.  It is an honor and a privilege for me to represent the Indian Gaming industry.  Indian country walks side by side with the other players in the industry.  We’ve come a long way in this industry and we are now the experts and are parallel with others in the industry.”
To begin the discussions of the panel about the tribal government gaming industry, Chairman Stevens started the panel discussions by asking about tribes pursing commercial gaming licensing and economic diversification by tribes.
Soper said, “Our tribe made a conscious decision many years ago that we wanted to pursue opportunities to diversify our economic base and one of those pursuits is to take our profits from gaming and invest them outside the reservation.  Our first project in 2006 was our Casino [Mohegan Sun Pocono] in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania, and it exceeded expectations.  Since that time we have expanded and have properties in Atlantic City, Louisiana, Washington State and will soon begin a project in Korea.  We have successfully established partnerships with other tribes and now we want to diversify internationally.”  He continued, “When you diversify commercially and have assets off the reservation, you generate greater creditability, and it allows you greater opportunities to continue to diversify.”
Patterson expanded upon Soper’s discussion and commended the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes as an excellent example of leadership in action.  It amazes me that Indian Country has the strength, courage, and stamina to govern one of the most regulated industries there is.  He continued, “We know that nearly every aspect of economic development is controlled in some way by the Federal Government.  The Trust relationship must be modernized to overcome barriers.  He explained that it would require a change in the Federal government mentality for tribes to create economic opportunities that will advance their tribes and be self-sufficient.”
Chairman Manuel told the crowd that “Gaming has provided us the opportunity to progress and diversify. I remember we used to have to choose which bills to pay and now we have built upon gaming with a golf course, airport, and a movie theater entertainment complex and a water treatment facility.  So those opportunities are just examples of going beyond gaming.”
Stevens asked the panel to discuss issues surrounding dealing with Unions and the Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act.  “They think we are anti-union.  But we are pro-sovereignty.”
Soper said, “Unions are a tough issue because it is an issue of sovereignty and it’s also a political issue, so you have the two competing interests. The more we can position it as an issue of sovereignty (self-governing authority), I think the more successful we are going to be.  Once you start comprising the basic principles of sovereignty in any context, then you venture back to that slippery slope.  It is very important to hold firm on these principles.”
President Patterson echoed, it is not necessarily that we are anti-union people, it is more in the sense that we are just self-determined in our course of action.” He talked about the results of self-determination at the Oneida Nation of New York and said that in FY 2015, the Oneida Nation of New York paid over $127 million dollars in wages to approximately 4, 446 employees, with employees paying more than $12 million dollars in federal payroll taxes and some $4.4 million in State taxes and the Nation has made upward of $4 million in matching contributions to employees 401-K retirement accounts.  He said, “The point I’m making is that the nation has done our best to take care of its workforce and their families.  We are meeting their needs, we are taking care of their families, and they can build a sound career, and the tribe is self-sufficient in determining their own labor actions.  Tribal Governments do act responsibly.”
Chairman Manuel spoke about the Ak-Chin Indian Community and agreed that it is about self-governance and self-determination.  “We have to take care of our employees.  We have to make sure we are not limited in our ability to develop our own policies and regulations, staying in line with the real meaning of sovereignty.”
The leadership panel rounded out the discussions giving final comments on the future of Indian Gaming and Indian Economic Diversification beyond gaming.  Soper told the attendees that there is still a lot of work to do as it relates to the future of economic sustainability. “There is still the need to educate others about tribes. We have to preserve our economic base. Indian gaming is a powerhouse, and it is very important that we protect that.  I think in the next decade or two, we are going to be more prominent as an industry.”
Patterson said, “There is a real strength in solidarity in Indian Country.  We must remain solid and accountable to each other in unity.  As we look at the tremendous benefit of Indian gaming, it is important that we continue to look at economic diversity, to build strong economic communities.”
Chairman Manuel also expressed the importance of unity.  He said, “The key is that we need to work together and he stressed that we must always remember our future.  We have fought so long for our gaming compacts so that we can remain self-sufficient.  We must be careful with what we give away.”
Chairman Stevens concluded by saying, “Our work is never done.  Too many Tribes are on the outside looking in, unable to take advantage of gaming because the market isn’t there.  We have to create other economic opportunities for all Tribes.  We must continue working with one another to further economic gains for all Tribes and we must be vigilant in the continued protection of Indian Gaming and Tribal Sovereignty.”

12 Proverbs And Philosophy From My Old Mind (8-18-2016)

 

Here in the 21st century how many Christians still observe the day given as Christs Birthday, as His Birthday? Yet, it seems that so few choose to walk in His principles. So, is it easier to keep this Holiday, or His Birthday than it is to keep His Commandments? Or, in this modern age are His words of no matter because we judge ourselves by our own righteousness?

 

America, if we the people give up the Liberty of the Second Amendment believing that the Government will protect us in our times of peril. Then we will most certainly lose our freedom, our God-given rights, our Country, and our lives.

 

Where you have liberty and all of the basic human rights given to you by God Himself, then you have a Country worth fighting for. If you do not have these things then you do not have a Country, all you have is labor and death to leave to your children and their children.

 

We should all work each day as though we will grow old. Yet each night we should bow our knees and pray that we do not die on the morrow.

 

Does anyone really own the title to a piece of land? Remember, the Lord gives and if He wishes, the Lord has every right to take away. All things belong to the Lord for they were His before us and they will be His after even the thought of us is gone. Yet no free people can tolerate a Government that puts themselves upon God’s Throne. Governments do not give freedom to the people. It is the people who allow the Government to exist, not the other way around!

 

A free people’s rights come from the laws of God, not from inside the D.C. Beltway!

 

What will be the American History of 2016 that is left to the future generations, if indeed there be any? Is this generation truly nothing but Donkey dung or Elephant manure? For what good or what freedom can come from the mouth’s of two Domesticated Beasts who’s master is a Dragon?

 

If the people are allowed to have no freedom of choice by their Government then the people’s only free choice is to remove that Government!

 

We have all heard the old saying about their being too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Yet if the labor of multitudes of Indians go to behoove a small number of Chiefs, these few Chiefs will grow to consider the many who made them what they are as nothing but parasites not even worthy of their crumbs!

 

As death draws us near to our bed what is it that we hope for or believe? Did we leave God’s Light in the eyes of our children or the love of freedom upon their hearts? Or, will the memory of us be forgotten once the dirt is shoveled upon our face?

 

If “We The People” are so ignorant as to send Lawyers to be in “Our Congress” how can we expect anything except double talk as they fill their pockets at the people’s expense?

 

If a person in your country seeks a position of power and they request you have confidence in them, consider their request if you wish. Yet make sure of two things. Make sure that their feet are bound with chains to your country’s Constitution, and their heart to the Constitution of ‘The’ Creator. For if either one is not bound as such, the people will know only misery, poverty, and an early death!

 

(I hope that you liked at least some or even one of these and if not, I hope that they at least made you either smile, or think. Good night, and God bless.)

Wagons West

Wagons West

Wagon west from Virginia’s foothills

Six kids in the family

Four wheels of wood and steal

Two mules a straining at the whip

Bluegrass foothills

Ohio and the Mississippi

Cherokee arrows, they all missed

Camping under the arch, evening sun pointing west

Wagon master hollering, everyone get in line

If the weather holds, and no indians attack

Should be at our new home

Spearfish Dakota, in about three week’s time

Mr. Custer says the Sioux

Are running scared of the bugle and the blue

The train, we got six indians riding point

You can see the hate of us in their eyes

Mr. Custer, on your words

Thirty families risk their lives

We had not yet cleared Nebraska

News came, yellow hair and the 7th

Would ride these plains no more

One more week we made the Black Hills

Land of gold, coal, and lumber

O yes and several thousand Sioux on every side

Now my family and I are all six feet under

In this cold ground we had hoped to plow

Honest, Truthful American History

 

On old wooden leaky boats smaller than a rich mans toys

We all climbed in and to this new world we set our sails

There’s some that have joined us who are looking for gold and fame

Most came for the hope of land that they could till in their own name

 

Roanoke Island, Jamestown on the river off the Chesapeake Bay

To Plymouth by the Rock these old creaky boats found their way

Pushed, pulled and chased yet most whites came by their own will

Many really had no choice, poverty and the laws chased them away

 

This strange new world with all this lumber and open land to claim

An extension of Heaven to all white males this land lays in wait

Wait, who are these strange red faces, with arrows pointed our way

Indians, so-called by Captain Columbus and his misfit crews I think

 

America, with all these wide open spaces surely I can make my way

White male land owners ordained, we shall be from sea to shining sea

These Indians don’t matter there just good excuse to use our black powder

What our white mans diseases don’t wipe out we will turn into our slaves

 

America, Valhalla to all white males who have the guts, guns and gold to stay

Kill all the Indian Braves then turn all who are left breathing into our slaves

The Chinese aren’t white so we can use them like dogs to lay our steel highways

Then these Black Devils from Africa, they are only good for work, whips and chains

 

Why should we be forced to stop at our borders whether by land or by the seas

Canada to our north settled by the French so of course we have every right to invade

To our south we burst through their front door to Mexico City we rode without shame

Spanish, Mexicans and them damn Indians, if we killed them all who would care anyway

 

Our gold bought Alaska from those Russians so damn it, no war, we didn’t get to play

Then of course there were those primitive Hawaiians, not knowing what we had in store

With big guns and ships we invaded their Islands, killed half the men, imprisoned their Queen

Now their land is our land as we buried our flag in their sand, you know we always want more

 

Is it through ego or arrogance that why some of us don’t understand the outside world

Why do some roll their eyes and snicker when we say that peace and human rights are our stay

America, I do still believe that she is the best nation to ever give her people a somewhat honest chance

So don’t get angry when others see us different, just look at King George W., Obama and Guantanamo Bay.

Comments Resulting From Yahoo Article About A Rash of Middle-East Suicide Bombings

  • On Sunday October 27th, 2013 I read an article on my Yahoo home page about a rash of recent car bombings and suicide bombings in the Middle-East. At the bottom of the page as you probably know, there is a space where you can make a comment if you wish to. I am now going to show you what I said in my comment. It will be word for word so that nothing can be taken out of context. Now it is up to you to think whatever you wish. After I read this gentleman’s response I then answered him back what I think of his comment. I do not ever try to do a tit-for-tat because I think that is a childish response to anything, I just try the best that I know how to just be honest in what I write.
    I wrote,—“The most violent religion on earth, it is really sad that a person can convince themselves that God wants them to commit suicide and murder. If God wants people killed, God is completely capable of doing it Himself. He does not need anyone’s help. If a person says to himself that the Deity that he is serving as God is telling them to go out into the world and maim and kill, then it is not God who he is listening to, it is Satan, not God”.
    Anthony C. wrote me back the following, again word for word.—“It was Christian white folks that oppressed and enslaved the black africans, and with their corrupt doctrine of a bible that support the oppression and killing of slaves. you have killed over 8million indians to make your U.S.A..just like you now killed and miss place and murder over 4million Palestinians and jews to make a dirty and un-holy state called israel with over 50,000 gays and lesbians, all in the name of christianity”.
    Now, this last part is my response to Anthony C.

    Anthony, on some of the history items you mentioned you are correct or at least close to correct but on some things you may be a bit amiss. It is obvious that you are doing some of your comments from a hate filled view, so, if you don’t mind too much I will go down your list. Yes it is true that a lot of wealthy white folks of times past had and traded in slaves, scripture does not say that slavery is wrong as it was an accepted fact it that time era. Slavery is something that I personally think is horrible. In the (new world) rich folks tried enslaving pretty much everyone to work on their plantations ect but the poor whites and the Indian people would  run away asap. This is when it was decided by these rich white folks to import Africans to do their work for them because if they tried to run away they didn’t have any place they could blend into and it was thought that the African slaves could physically handle the heat and the hard work. This was the first time that a people were enslaved by being a certain race, which at least in my thoughts is horrible. I have learned through much reading that the biggest slave market in the world today is in the Islamic world and still of mostly black people from northern Africa. There is also horrible systems set up like in China and India with their Caste system, it is horrible how humans treat each other.
    Christianity has never ever okay’ed the beating or killing of anyone, ever. The people who call themselves Christians and act in these manners will see very plainly what Hell is like. Bible doctrine does not give anyone the right to harm or kill. The Crusades of the Catholic church of many hundreds of years ago were evil, Popes who ordered these military events were evil to the point of Demonic. These did kill many, many thousands of people and the blood of these people will be put upon these so called Christian leaders who did those acts.
    Now the Indian event you speak of Anthony, yes it is a horrible truth that most of the Europeans that came to the Americas considered people who were not white as being savages, soulless, and even non humans. This is how they were able to justify to themselves taking/stealing the land of these “savages” and in killing them if they fought back. In our southwest we have a state called New Mexico that has the largest Indian reservation in our country, it is of the Navajo people. In America some peoples yell loudly about how badly they were treated in time past, and most certainly they have the right and the grounds to do so, but by far the People who were treated the worst by the so called Christian white man are the Indian people of our country.
    Here now is a point that by the tone of your hatred you will not like or except. If the American Indian people decided to stage a revolt today in this time era and by force took back all the land of even one state, like New Mexico, would it be okay for the rest of our countries people to bitch and complain about those Indians stealing OUR land? That rings of total stupidity doesn’t it. After all, it was their land that we stole from them correct? Very hypocritical of the non-Indian people to think or act as if the Indian people stole our land?
    Here is the point I know you won’t like. There was a world before 632 A.D. The Jewish people were on the land that belonged to the nation of Israel for about 1,700 years before Muhammad was even born. Muhammad and his armies invaded, stole, and murdered their way through many regional nations including Palestine.
    In 1948 a small sliver of the land that belongs to the nation of Israel was forcibly taken back by their rightful owners. The Arab nations in the middle east still possess about 99% of all the land, if the Muslim people of the middle east wanted to they could have easily assimilated the Palestinian people into their culture, Jordan tried for awhile but even they threw them out. There could easily be peace in the Holy Land but both sides have to want peace and the Palestinian leadership and military wings will not tolerate peace with Israel. And in regards to the gay and lesbian stupidity, the Bible does not okay these actions, the Bible is strongly against such things, so saying this STUFF about “in the name of Christianity”, you don’t even have a clue what you are talking about, your hatred precedes the activation of your knowledge, if you actually have any.

    Now folks, it’s your turn, what do you think? Was I to harsh?—Goodnight and I hope and pray that God will bless and keep you and all of your loved ones safe in this hatefilled world.

    Sincerly,

    ted
