Today, more and more religious groups – many evangelical – are joining the bandwagon of anti-Zionism. Why is that? Back with us today is Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst at CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He discusses what historically has happened when society tries to replace God and/or attempts to establish a utopia – Jews get hurt and eventually so does humanity. The Marxist takeover in the West right now is doing just that. And it may explain how religious groups have allowed social justice – and by extension anti-Zionism – to gain a foothold.
Some topics are easy to debate – persecution, anti-Constitutional measures, even civil asset forfeiture. But other topics can be difficult to discuss because they are difficult to hear. One of those is antisemitism on the part of the Christian community. Does it happen? Here today to dissect this issue is author and commentator Olivier Melnick (newantisemitism.com). Have Christians persecuted Jews in the past because of verses in the Bible? Was it because they had a hand in killing Christ? Was it because they were Jewish or for some other reason? Olivier discusses all of this plus the history of anti-Jewish acts all the way up to today.
There are fellow travelers down the Christian road, but some of them may be wolves in sheep’s clothing. Tricia Miller (www.camera.org), Senior Research Analyst at CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis, joins us to look at the narrative that Jesus was a Palestinian and why that narrative is being perpetuated. Hint: it has to do with Israel’s right to land and a false theology. Ms. Miller reveals the truth of how Jews and Palestinians live inside of Israel and the use of racism to further the anti-Jew and anti-Israel narrative.
Our freedoms are under attack during this crisis with some in power wielding decrees that test the limits of the Constitution. In this week's boralogue, John looks at how we've been under attack from these power elites for quite some time – this is nothing new. Our freedoms are precious and on this Memorial Day, we honor those who have defended them. We must also always speak out against those who would take those freedoms from us.
Transformation of society has been a long-standing goal and open secret of educrats. Diane Douglas, former Arizona Superintendent of Public Education, joins us to recount her experience inside the education bureaucracy and show why educrats always seem to enact bad, unworkable policies. She also discusses the voucher system and tuition credits.
Lastly, we welcome J. Randall Price (www.liberty.edu), Professor of Biblical and Judaic Studies at Liberty University and former Qumran Cave Excavation Director. He examines the differences in perception surrounding Israel by different age groups, how Christians are faring in Israel, and how anti-semitism has morphed from being anti-Jew to being against Israel itself.
