Why should I care about BDS?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, August 21:

Just how much hatred of Israel is there in the world? You may be surprised.

Much of the audience of The Remnant Road is pro-Israel. Whether Messianic/Hebrew Roots, Christian, or Jewish, our impression of the State of Israel and the Jewish people is positive. That attitude, of course, comes from a biblical worldview which sees Israel as the covenant nation of the Almighty God. Yet most of the world does not share such a worldview.

This is where Lee Bender comes in. He has been fighting anti-Israel bias for many years through his website, Facts on Israel, and in his position as  co-president of the Philadelphia Chapter, Zionist Organization of America. Lee joins us to talk about Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), the movement that is born from a worldview which sees Israel as illegitimate. His particular topic in this visit is the current concert tour of Roger Waters, former Pink Floyd bass player who is actively promoting BDS at every opportunity. Why is this important? That is what Lee will explain to us.

Before we visit with Lee, Hanoch Young will join us for a live report from Israel. He will have just returned home from a trip to the US for the Latter Reign Conference in Lake City, Florida. Expect some eye-opening observations as Hanoch shares his perspective on the current state of affairs.

The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show.  You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.

Obama’s Betrayal – Gary Bauer’s End of Day Report, December 27, 2016

What happened at the United Nations last Friday, December 23?  That has been the topic of many conversations over the past few days as news of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 has raised great concern over what this means for Israel.  Those who are watching the signs of the times for understanding of biblical prophecies uniformly recognize that the resolution and the role of the United States in bringing it to pass have brought the world across another great threshold in anticipated End Times scenarios.

But do we really know what happened, or what to expect?  Yes, we do have an idea.  That is the purpose of the following analysis by Gary Bauer, a Christian with a wealth of knowledge and experience in Washington’s political circles.  It is offered here in the interest of providing a succinct summary of what happened, and a clear projection of the consequences.

Obama’s Betrayal

Gary L. Bauer

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

In an administration that has moved from one low to the next when it comes to foreign policy and our role in the world, Obama set a new low last weekend as Jews and Christians were preparing to celebrate Chanukah and Christmas. If you are confused about how damaging last week’s U.N. Security Council vote is, all you need to know is that decent people on the left and right are condemning it, while Hamas and Islamic Jihad are dancing in the streets.

Why Did Tolkien Care About the Jews? | PJ Media

The headstone at the Tolkiens' grave in Oxford, England.

The headstone at the Tolkiens’ grave in Oxford, England.

Somewhere in my boxes full of old photographs there is a picture I took in 1986 while on a pilgrimage to Oxford, England.  The purpose of that trip to England was not to visit Oxford, but to attend a conference with one of my oldest friends (who probably would prefer to remain anonymous).  I was stationed in Germany at the time, and he was in need of a vacation, so we met in England to join other friends at a Christian conference.  When it was over the opportunity arose to see Oxford.  Since we had met two very charming British girls at the conference, and since they shared some of my enthusiasm for Tolkien, they joined us on this journey.

Ah, Tolkien.  He was the attraction to Oxford.  J.R.R. Tolkien’s works have captured my attention since I first read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings at age 11.  Of the handful of authors who shaped my worldview, he and C.S. Lewis share the top position.  It was his grave I particularly wanted to see, after enjoying a pint in his honor at The Eagle and Child, the pub where he, Lewis, and others shared their literary ideas.  The old photograph lost somewhere in the boxes is the one I took of his grave.  One day I will dig it out and put it in an album of good memories.

Tolkien left us far more than good memories, of course.  He has made a lasting impact for good on four generations of English-speaking youth.  That impact shows no sign of slowing – provided youth of the present and future read him, that is.  Watching the cinematic adaptations of his works is not enough.  The depth of Tolkien is not in the action sequences of Elves fighting Orcs and Dwarves hunting dragons, but in the way he weaves the essence of humanity into his stories.  I view this as a gift from the Almighty. 

My guess is that David Goldman would agree.  In this article reposted from PJ Media, he investigates what appears to be a major motivation for Tolkien:  neutralizing the anti-Semitic messages of German composer Richard Wagner.  Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of Nazism knows the high place of Wagner in Adolf Hitler’s esteem.  It should be no surprise that Wagner, like Hitler, despised Jews.  Tolkien did not despise Jews; he despised those who twisted our historical and literary inheritance into something evil to justify the eradication of that which is good.  That is what Goldman relates as he presents the back story of a masterful author’s life work.

Why is this important?  The literary-minded understand.  Words, music, and images capture the soul and shape the mind.  Regarding Tolkien and Wagner, Goldman sums up the point this way:

Wagner’s legacy remains baleful.  Fortunately, many more people know Tolkien than know Wagner, and we may pronounce Tolkien’s project a success.  Unfortunately, Wagner’s hold on the cultural elite remains strong, and influences modern culture in ways of which the popular audience is unaware.  

How did he arrive at this conclusion?  Read on and find out.

And thanks very much to my anonymous old friend, who not only accompanied me on that Oxford pilgrimage long ago, but brought this piece to my attention.

Nittel Nacht: A Jewish Christmas Tradition

Why would Jews have Christmas traditions?  As Aaron Eby explains in this article published by First Fruits of Zion, the tradition of Nittel Nacht originated in Eastern Europe in response to the anti-Semitic acts of Christians frequently committed on Christmas Eve.  It would seem that the version of the story of Jesus which they had heard in Christmas Eve services emphasized the role of Jews in rejecting Jesus and causing his execution.  Perhaps that would be sufficient motivation for a Bohemian peasant with nothing better to do to find a Jewish shop and throw a brick through the window, or maybe even throw that brick through the head of an unsuspecting Jewish pedestrian.  With such a testimony by the self-identified followers of Jesus Christ, is it any wonder that Jews have had little motivation to learn about the very real, and very Jewish, Jesus?


Nittel Nacht

Believe it or not, there really are customs among Chasidim for Christmas Eve.
Aaron Eby
(originally published on First Fruits of Zion, December 24, 2015)

Given that Christmas Eve was a favorite time for raids, pogroms, and marauding, certain practices developed in Jewish communities as a result.  Some of them were pragmatic, a matter of survival; others were symbolic, to show disdain for the enemies of the Jewish people.  May we never see those dark times again.
