Strict Muslim followers of the Quran are “savages.”…Ted Pike
Are the ADL, AIPAC, and the Israeli Lobby involved?
…by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor … featuring the Rev. Ted Pike
I met Ted Pike online over ten years ago. I had seen some of his work where he was on the cutting edge of using video and the Internet to get around the corporate media censorship block on ‘sensitive’ Israel issues.
His Why the Mid East Bleeds is a classic and he sold I believe it was 25,000 of these. It was a fabulous accomplishment to all the rest of us other up and coming independent Internet video journalists, with yours truly breaking in via public tv in Atlanta.
Ted had the fist website where he posted five minute plus highlights of all the videos he had done. At that time all the commercial video sites had was maybe a thumbnail of the video box cover, a title, and if you were lucky maybe a line or two of what it was about. They expected you to spend $20 to $30 on this alone, which I thought was exceedingly lazy marketing.
Video highlight clips are what birthed Youtube, as with the early five minute limit you had to shoot highlights. For every one person who bought a video, 25, 50 or a 100 might view the highlight clip where you at least got to impart the key points of your message to them. I thought it was brilliant marketing, and history has confirmed that.
Ted’s Christian PR talents were developed flying around with his evangelist father, who started the National Prayer Breakfast that became a Christian institution in America. Dad often took took his boys around with him and that is where Ted got to know all the main evangelical preachers of the time. And yes, dad’s mailing list helped Ted market a lot of videos years later.
The funding that Ted generated from his videos allowed him to create a studio on his family property where he began producing material to combat the growing menace of Christian Zionism here in America.
The CZs have done more damage to American national security than all the Muslim terrorists combined, the ones that were not working for Israeli, US or British fronts anyway.
Some years ago he almost single handedly fought off the ADL Hate Crime law definition creep when Abe Foxman decided to target Christians as hate crimers if they espoused anything that the the ADL had not approved.
Ted latched onto a big test case where a Jewish prosecutor indicted four Christians for proselytizing at a gay festival in Philadelphia under recently expanded hate crime statutes. The prosecutor just happened to be with the ADL. Imagine that.
These were felony charges and the ADL was just giddy with joy to have on display that they could once again subvert the American legal system to punish their ideological adversaries with their usual offer of second class citizenship, all on the taxpayers nickel.
But on February 17th, 2005, Philadelphia court judge Pamela Dembe dismissed the charges on first amendment grounds which have had Supreme Court case law sustaining them, effectively ruling the prosecution of these protesting Christians a judicial lynching, which of course it was.
A few years after this story and the ADL battles I lost track of Ted. I feared illness or worse, that he might have died, but then figured there would have been some notice of that if so. So I did some updating research today to write this and found out the reason why…a very sad one indeed.
After my wife’s death [Alynn] by drowning on December 6th as a result of demonic coercion (See, Ted Pike: My Wife Died a Martyr for God and Freedom), many have communicated to me the wish that her body might be recovered and reverently dealt with.
Earlier this month pilots on a Willamette river excursion boat about a mile below the Portland Bridge she jumped from found her floating corpse. Dental records confirmed it was Alynn. Her ashes will be mingled in the same urn with those of her beloved mother—with whom she was so closely entwined on earth and whose fellowship she yearned to resume in heaven.
The peace and confidence in God’s providence that I felt the night after her death continues.
Alynn was headed for an increasingly difficult life—especially after her brain surgery and with no indication that the demonic onslaught against her would ever end except in death. Yet she was always unflinching in courage, asking God for even more hardship if such would generate spiritual power and protect my anti-Zionist mission.
I remain deeply honored that God entrusted this truly great and marvelously talented and spiritual woman to me for twenty-seven years. My daily joy is the knowledge that soon I will be with her always. July 11, 2012…Ted Pike
We are all lucky to have such people among us when we have so many slime balls, and many of them, unfortunately, able to rise up into top leadership positions over us.
We can all honor both Alynn and Ted by keeping a close eye on those who have sided with the subversive elements among us.
One of my personal favorites as a poster child of the above is Pam Geller. She is a very active front lady, with her hair, prominently displayed breasts and plastic surgery, for the Israeli Lobby.
She’s a wonderful example of how their penetration into media can promote a hatemeister like this into not only American homes, but New York subways as Ted explains below.
I might also add that the City of New York must have approved these ads, which I doubt got any resistance in Bloomberg’s town. And there were a lot of donators who funded them.
You will notice that in the media coverage so for no one seems curious to look into who them might be and what connections to certain groups them might have.
The intelligence community has had Geller profiled as an Israeli asset from day one, to work the Neocon-Christian Zionist movement and keep the Koolaid flowing.
Did Pam Geller Influence NYC Subway Murder?
… by Rev. Ted Pike January 1, 2013
Beginning last summer blogger Pam Geller’s anti-Islamic NYC transit ads have bombarded subway passengers with a simple, dangerous message: Strict Muslim followers of the Quran are “savages.”
Her ads read: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.” “Jihad” in Islam means “struggle.” To Muslim literalists it can mean struggle for spiritual truth and right doctrine—not just “holy war” against infidels.
Over the weekend, on a NYC subway platform, Erika Mendenez pushed a man she thought was one of those Muslim “savages” to his death before a moving subway train. Actually, he was a Hindu.
Yet she also hated Hindus. Mendenez: “I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up.”
Is there a connection between months of high intensity anti-Islamic propaganda impacting NYC subway riders and this woman’s violent action? Pam Geller denies there is. She says Mendenez has hated Muslims for more than a decade and is also insane.
This woman may be severely mentally ill. But with the increasing hatred between different groups and races, it is important that leaders and opinion makers consider how their words and dogma impact unstable, even potentially violent persons.
Despite Geller and associate Robert Spencer’s vehement denials that Geller’s ads had anything to do with the murder, it is ludicrous to discount the possibility that they pushed Mendenez off the platform of her remaining sanity.
Will this incident dampen the love affair of evangelical Zionists with Geller? Probably not. But should we wait for more murders of Muslims before we feel entitled to condemn PR campaigns for Israel which describe Israel’s enemies as “savage?”
The death of this man at the hands of an Islamophobe should be a wakeup call to everyone of the peril of diminishing the humanity of those with whom we may virulently disagree. Over the past year I have rebuked such hatred on the anti-Zionist right.
In my article “Is Christian Identity True?” I debunk the widely held “two seed line” branch of Christian Identity. It says whites come from pure racial stock while Jews and other minorities are descended from the devil. As such, Identity teaches that Jews are irredeemable, possessing no souls. It teaches it is useless to try to evangelize them and God does not hear the prayer of a Jewish child.
I have done the same to white leaders who teach that virtually all Jews today are genetically programmed to subvert and destroy civilization. (See The “Bad Jewish Genes” Theory and David Duke’s Real Beliefs about Jews) And I have repeatedly rebuked Zionist evangelicals for increasingly viewing Palestinians as virtually subhuman, a “cursed race” to be subjugated and expelled by Israel.
These racist ideologies, like Geller’s Islamophobia, degrade large populations to such inferior, even subhuman status that Christians need no longer share Christ with them – or even care what happens to them. The Bible says all men are created in the image of God, endowed with free will souls capable of choosing for or against their Creator.
All forms of racist dehumanization are wicked because they deny this gift of God, alleging that some are beneath His love and beyond redemption. One need not look far in history, or present world affairs, to see how they form the basis for regimes of brutal inhumanity.
I can tolerate assertion of scientifically proven differences between races, as well as criticism of religious systems. But I will never condone any inference that any group of people are outside the love of Jesus and His fervent desire for them to join Him in eternity!
That assertion by itself is demonic, as Satan attempts to persuade the white racialist Christian, the Zionist Christian, or anti-Muslim Christian to abandon evangelism toward feared or hated groups and deny the image of God in them.
Our Founding Fathers were well aware that abusive degrading words could produce violence. Yet they permitted it under the First Amendment. They knew that the burden of restraint rests on the shoulders of the public.
Through outcry, ridicule, boycott, etc. we can collectively restrain dangerous and dehumanizing ideas.
It’s time that everyone resolve that, vehement as our differences with one other may be, we will absolutely never indulge in or sympathize with the assertion that any human being is intrinsically degraded, “savage,” or less than fully human.
Instead, let us regard that person who makes such a claim to be the one who is really subhuman.
