What do Muslims think?
"As the Arabs see the Jews"
His Majesty King Abdullah, of Jordan
The American Magazine November 1947
"I am especially delighted to address an American audience, for the tragic problem of Palestine will never be solved without American understanding, American sympathy, American support.
So many billions of words have been written about Palestine-perhaps more than on any other subject in history-that I hesitate to add to them. Yet I am compelled to do so, for I am reluctantly convinced that the world in general, and America in particular, knows almost nothing of the true case of the Arabs.
We Arabs follow, perhaps far more than you think, the press of America. We are frankly disturbed to find that for every word printed on the Arab side, a thousand are printed on the Zionist side.
There are many reasons for this. You have many millions of Jewish citizens interested in this question. They are highly vocal and wise in the ways of publicity. There are few Arab citizens in America, and we are as yet unskilled in the technique of modern propaganda.
The results have been alarming for us. In your press we see a horrible caricature and are told it is our true portrait. In all justice, we cannot let this pass by default.
Our case is quite simple: For nearly 2,000 years Palestine has been almost 100 percent Arab. It is still preponderantly Arab today, in spite of enormous Jewish immigration. But if this immigration continues we shall soon be outnumbered-a minority in our home.
Palestine is a small and very poor country, about the size of your state of Vermont. Its Arab population is only about 1,200,000. Already we have had forced on us, against our will, some 600,000 Zionist Jews. We are threatened with many hundreds of thousands more.
Our position is so simple and natural that we are amazed it should even be questioned. It is exactly the same position you in America take in regard to the unhappy European Jews. You are sorry for them, but you do not want them in your country.
We do not want them in ours, either. Not because they are Jews, but because they are foreigners. We would not want hundreds of thousands of foreigners in our country, be they Englishmen or Norwegians or Brazilians or whatever.
Think for a moment: in the last 25 years we have had one third of our entire population forced upon us. In America that would be the equivalent of 45,000,000 complete strangers admitted to your country, over your violent protest, since 1921. How would you have reacted to that?
Because of our perfectly natural dislike of being overwhelmed in our own homeland, we are called blind nationalists and heartless anti-Semites. This charge would be ludicrous were it not so dangerous.
No people on earth has been less "anti-Semitic" than the Arabs. The persecution of the Jews has been confined almost entirely to the Christian nations of the West. Jews, themselves, will admit that never since the Great Dispersion did Jews develop so freely and reach such importance as in Spain when it was an Arab possession. With very minor exceptions, Jews have lived for many centuries in the Middle East, in complete peace and friendliness with their Arab neighbors.
Damascus, Baghdad, Beirut and other Arab centres have always contained large and prosperous Jewish colonies. Until the Zionist invasion of Palestine began, these Jews received the most generous treatment-far, far better than in Christian Europe. Now, unhappily, for the first time in history, these Jews are beginning to feel the effects of Arab resistance to the Zionist assault. Most of them are as anxious as Arabs to stop it. Most of these Jews who have found happy homes among us resent, as we do, the coming of these strangers.
I was puzzled for a long time about the odd belief which apparently persists in America that Palestine has somehow "always been a Jewish land". Recently an American I talked to cleared up this mystery. He pointed out that the only things most Americans know about Palestine are what they read in the Bible. It was a Jewish land in those days, they reason, and they assume it has always remained so.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is absurd to reach so far back into the mists of history to argue about who should have Palestine today, and I apologize for it. Yet the Jews do this, and I must reply to their "historic claim". I wonder if the world has ever seen a stranger sight than a group of people seriously pretending to claim a land because their ancestors lived there some 2,000 years ago!
If you suggest that I am biased, I invite you to read any sound history of the period and verify the facts.
Such fragmentary records as we have indicate that the Jews were wandering nomads from Iraq who moved to southern Turkey, came south to Palestine stayed there for a short time, and then passed to Egypt, where they remained about 400 years. About 1300B.C.(according to your calendar) they left Egypt and gradually conquered most-but not all-of the inhabitants of Palestine.
It is significant that the Philistines-not the Jews-gave their name to the country: "Palestine" is merely the Greek form of "Phillistia."
Only once, during the empire of David and Solomon, did the jews ever control nearly-but not all-the land which is today Palestine. This empire lasted only 70 years, ending in 926 B.C.Only 250 years later the Kingdom of Judah had shrunk to a small province around Jerusalem, barely a quarter of modern Palestine.
In 63BC the Jews were conquered by Roman Pompey, and never again had even the vestige of independence. The Roman Emperor Hadrian finally wiped them out about 135 AD. He utterly destroyed Jerusalem, rebuilt under another name, and for hundreds of years no jew was permitted to enter it. A handful of Jews remained in Palestine but the vast majority were killed or scattered to other countries, in the Diaspora, or the Great Dispersion. From that time Palestine ceased to be a Jewish country, in any conceivable sense.
This was 1,815 years ago, and yet the jews solemnly pretend they still own Palestine! If such fantasy were allowed, how the map of the world would dance about.
Italians might claim England, which the Romans held so long. England might claim France, "homeland" of the conquering Normans. and the French Normans might claim Norway, where their ancestors originated. And incidentally, we Arabs might claim Spain, which we held for 700 years.
Many Mexicans might claim Spain, "homeland" of their forefathers. They might even claim Texas, which was Mexican until 100 years ago. And suppose the American Indians claimed the "homeland" of which they were the sole, native, and ancient occupants until only some 450 years ago!
I am not being facetious. All these claims are just as valid-or just as fantastic-as the Jewish "historic connection" with Palestine. Most are more valid.
In any event, the great Moslem expansion about 650 AD finally settled things. It dominated Palestine completely. From that day on, Palestine was solidly Arabic in population, language and religion. When British armies entered the country during the last war, they found 500,000 Arabs and only 65,000 Jews.
If solid, uninterrupted Arab occupation for nearly 1,300 years does not make a country "Arab" what does?
The Jews say, and rightly, that Palestine is the home of their religion. It is likewise the birthplace of Christianity, but would any Christian nation claim it on that account? In passing, let me say that the Christian Arabs-and there are many hundreds of thousands of them in the Arab World-are in absolute agreement with all other Arabs in opposing the Zionist invasion of Palestine.
May I also point out that Jerusalem is, after Mecca and Medina, the holiest place in Islam. In fact, in the early days of our religion, Moslems prayed toward Jerusalem instead of Mecca.
The Jewish "religious claim" to Palestine is as absurd as the "historic claim," The Holy Places, sacred to three great religions, must be open to all, the monopoly of none. Let us not confuse religion and politics.
We are told that we are inhumane and heartless because we do not accept with open arms the perhaps 200,000 Jews in Europe who suffered so frightfully under Nazi cruelty, and who even now-almost three years after war's end-still languish in cold, depressing camps.
Let me underline several facts. The unimaginable persecution of the Jews was not done by the Arabs: it was done by a Christian nation in the West. The war which ruined Europe and made it almost impossible for these Jews to rehabilitate themselves was fought by the Christian nations of the West. The rich and empty portions of the earth belong, not to the Arabs, but to the Christian nations of the West.
And yet, to ease their consciences, these Christian nations of the West are asking Palestine-a poor and tiny Moslem country of the East-to accept the entire burden. "We have hurt these people terribly," cries the West to the East. "Won't you please take care of them for us?"
We find neither logic nor justice in this. Are we therefore "cruel and heartless nationalists?"
We are a generous people: we are proud that "Arab hospitality" is a phrase famous throughout the world. We are a humane people: no one was shocked more than we by the Hitlerite terror. No one pities the present plight of the desperate European Jews more than we.
But we say that Palestine has already sheltered 600.000 refugees. We believe that is enough to expect of us-even too much. We believe it is now the turn of the rest of the world to accept some of them.
I will be entirely frank with you. There is one thing the Arab world simply cannot understand. Of all the nations of the earth, America is most insistent that something be done for these suffering Jews of Europe. This feeling does credit to the humanity for which America is famous, and to that glorious inscription on you Statue of Liberty.
And yet this same America-the richest, greatest, most powerful nation the world has ever known-refuses to accept more than a token handful of these same Jews herself!
I hope you will not think I am being bitter about this. I have tried hard to understand that mysterious paradox, and I confess i cannot. Nor can any other Arab.
Perhaps you have been informed that "the Jews in Europe want to go to no other place except Palestine".
This myth is one of the greatest propaganda triumphs of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, the organization which promotes with fanatic zeal the emigration to Palestine. It is a subtle half-truth, thus doubly dangerous.
The astounding truth is that nobody on earth really knows where these unfortunate Jews really want to go!
You would think that in so grave a problem, the American, British, and other authorities responsible for the European Jews would have made a very careful survey, probably by vote, to find out where each Jew actually wants to go. Amazingly enough this has never been done! The Jewish Agency has prevented it.
Some time ago the American Military Governor in Germany was asked at a press conference how he was so certain that all Jews there wanted to go to Palestine. His answer was simple: "My Jewish advisors tell me so" he admitted no poll had ever been made. Preparations were indeed begun for one, but the Jewish Agency stepped in to stop it.
The truth is that the Jews in German camps are now subjected to a Zionist pressure campaign which learned much from the Nazi terror. It is dangerous for a Jew to say that he would rather go to some other country, not Palestine. Such dissenters have been severely beaten, and worse.
Not long ago, in Palestine, nearly 1,000 Austrian Jews informed the international refugee organization that they would like to go back to Austria, and plans were made to repatriate them.
The Jewish Agency heard of this, and exerted enough political pressure to stop it. It would be bad propaganda for Zionism if Jews began leaving Palestine. The nearly 1,000 Austrians are still there, against their will.
The fact is that most of the European Jews are Western in culture and outlook, entirely urban in experience and habits. They cannot really have their hearts set on becoming pioneers in the barren arid, cramped land which is Palestine.
One thing, however, is undoubtedly true. As matters stand now, most refugee Jews in Europe would, indeed, vote for Palestine, simply because they know no other country will have them.
If you or I were given a choice between a near-prison camp for the rest of our lives-or Palestine-we would both choose Palestine, too.
But open up any other alternative to them-give them any other choice, and see what happens!
No poll, however, will be worth anything unless the nations of the earth are willing to open their doors-just a little-to the Jews. In other words, if in such a poll a Jew says he wants to go to Sweden, Sweden must be willing to accept him. If he votes for America, you must let him come in.
Any other kind of poll would be a farce. For the desperate Jews, this is no idle testing of opinion: this is a grave mater of life or death. Unless he is absolutely sure that his vote means something, he will always vote for Palestine, so as not to risk his bird in the hand for one in the bush.
In any event, Palestine can accept no more. The 65,00 Jews in Palestine in 1948 have jumped to 600,000 today. We Arabs have increased, too, but not by immigration. The Jews were then a mere 11 per cent of our population. Today we are one third of it.
The rate of increase has been terrifying. In a few more years-unless stopped now-it will overwhelm us, and we shall be an important minority in our own home.
Surely the rest of the wide world is rich enough and generous enough to find a place for 200,00 Jews-about one third the number that tiny, poor Palestine has already sheltered. For the rest of the world, it is hardly a drop in the bucket. For us it means national suicide.
We are sometimes told that since the Jews came to Palestine, the Arab standard of living has improved. This is a most complicated question. But let us even assume for the argument , that it is true. We would rather be a bit poorer, and masters of our own home. Is this unnatural?
The sorry story of the so-called "Balfour Declaration" which started Zionist immigration into Palestine, is too complicated to repeat here in detail. It is grounded in broken promises to the Arabs-promises made in cold print which admit no denying.
We utterly deny its validity. We utterly deny the right of Great Britain to give away Arab land for a "national home" for an entirely foreign people.
Even the League of Nations sanction does not alter this. At the time, not a single Arab state was a member of the League. We were not allowed to say a word in our own defense.
I must point out, again in friendly frankness, that America was nearly as responsible as Britain for this Balfour Declaration. President Wilson approved it before it was issued, and the American Congress adopted it word for word in a joint resolution on 30th June, 1922.
In the 1920s, Arabs were annoyed and insulted by Zionist immigration, but not alarmed by it. It was steady, but fairly small, as even the Zionist founders thought it would remain. Indeed for some years, more Jews left Palestine than entered it-in 1927 almost twice as many.
But two new factors, entirely unforeseen by Britain or the League or America or the most fervent Zionist, arose in the early thirties to raise the immigration to undreamed heights. One was the World Depression; the second the rise of Hitler.
In 1932, the year before Hitler came to power, only 9,500 Jews came to Palestine. We did not welcome them, but we were not afraid that, at that rate, our solid Arab majority would ever be in danger.
But the next year-the year of Hitler-it jumped to 20,000! in 1934 it was 42,000! In 1935 it reached 61,000!
It was no longer the orderly arrival of idealist Zionists. Rather, all Europe was pouring its frightened Jews upon us. Then, at last, we, too, became frightened. We knew that unless this enormous influx stopped, we were , as Arabs, doomed in our Palestine homeland. And we have not changed our minds.
I have the impression that many Americans believe the trouble in Palestine is very remote from the, that America had little to do with it, and that your only interest now is that of a humane bystander.
I believe that you do not realize how directly you are, as a nation, responsible in general for the whole Zionist move and specifically for the present terrorism. I call this to your attention because I am certain that if you realize your responsibility you will act fairly to admit and assume it.
Quite aside from official American support for the "National Home" of the Balfour Declaration, the Zionist settlements in Palestine would have been almost impossible, on anything like the current scale, without American money. This was contributed by American Jewry in an idealistic effort to help their fellows.
The motive was worthy: the result were disastrous. The contributions were by private individuals, but they were almost entirely Americans, and as a nation, only Americans can answer for it.
The present catastrophe may be laid almost entirely at your door. Your government almost alone in the world, is insisting on the immediate admission of 100,000 more Jews into Palestine-to be followed by countless additional ones. This will have the most frightful consequences in bloody chaos beyond anything ever hinted at in Palestine before.
It is your press and political leadership , almost alone in the world, who press this demand. It is almost entirely American money which hires or buys the "refugee ships" that steam illegally toward Palestine: American money which pays their crews. The illegal immigration from Europe is arranged by the Jewish Agency, supported almost entirely by American funds. It is American dollars which support the terrorists, which buy the bullets and pistols that kill British soldiers-your allies-and Arab citizens-your friends.
We in the Arab world were stunned to hear that you permit open advertisements in newspapers asking for money to finance these terrorists, to arm them openly and deliberately for murder. We could not believe this could really happen in the modern world. Now we must believe it: we have seen the advertisements with our own eyes.
I point out these things because nothing less than complete frankness will be of use. The crisis is too stark for mere polite vagueness which means nothing.
I have the most complete confidence in the fair-mindedness and generosity of the American public. We Arabs ask no favors. We ask only that you know the full truth, not half of it. We ask only that when you judge the Palestine question, you put yourselves in our place.
What would your answer be if some outside agency told you that you must accept in America many millions of utter strangers in your midst-enough to dominate your country-merely because they insisted on going to America , and because their forefathers had once lived there some 2,000 years ago?"
Our answer is the same.
And what would be your action if, in spite of your refusal, this outside agency began forcing them on you?
Ours will be the same."
"Familiar association with heathens and infidels is forbidden to the people of Islam, and friendly and intimate intercourse between two parties that to one another as darkness and light is far from desirable."
Asim Efendi, 'History' c. 1809
"It is one of the things known to all well-informed persons that the conflagration of sedition and wickedness that broke out a few years ago in France, scattering sparks and shooting flames of mischief and tumult in all directions, had been conceived many years previously in the minds of certain accursed heretics, and had been a quiescent evil which they sought an opportunity to waken. In this way : the known and famous atheists Voltaire and Rousseau, and other materialists like them, had printed and published various works, consisting, God preserve us, of insults and vilification against the pure prophets and great kings, of the removal and abolition of all religion, and of allusions to the sweetness of equality and republicanism, all expressed in easily intelligible words and phrases, in the form of mockery , in the language of the common people. Finding the pleasure of novelty in these writings, most of the people, even youths and women, inclined towards them and paid close attention to them, so that heresy and wickedness spread like syphilis to the arteries of their brains and corrupted their beliefs. When the revolution became more intense, none took offence at the closing of churches, the killing and expulsion of monks, and the abolition of religion and doctrine: they set their hears on equality and freedom, through which they hoped to attain perfect bliss in this world, in accordance with the lying teachings increasingly disseminated among the common people by this pernicious crew, who stirred up sedition and evil because of selfishness or self-interest. It is well known that the ultimate basis of the order and cohesion of every state is a firm group tranquility of the land and the control of the subjects cannot be encompassed by political means alone; that the necessity for the fear of God and the regard for retribution in the harts of God's slaves is one of the unshakably established divine decrees; that in both ancient and modern times every state and people has had its own religion, whether true or false. Nevertheless, the leaders of the sedition and evil appearing in France, in a manner without precedent, in order to facilitate the accomplishment of their evil purposes, and in utter disregard of the fearsome consequences, have removed the fear of God and regard for retribution from the common people, made lawful all kinds of abominable deeds, utterly obliterated all shame and decency, and then prepared the way for the reduction of the people of France to the state of cattle. Nor were they satisfied with this alone, but finding supporters like themselves in every place, in order to keep others states busy with the protection of their own regimes and thus forestall an attack on themselves, they had their rebellious declaration which they call "The Rights of Man' translated into all languages and published in all parts, and strove to incite the common people of the nations and religions to rebel against the kings to whom they were subject."
Ahmed Atif Efendi (A Report to the Divan about the French revolution)
"In the Name of God, the Merciful and the Compassionate.
"O you who believe in the unity of God, community of Muslims, know that the French nation (may God devastate their dwellings and abase their banners, for they are tyrannical infidels and dissident evildoers) do not believe in the unity of the Lord of Heaven and Earth, nor in the mission of the intercessor on the Day of Judgment, but have abandoned all religions, and denied the after-world and its penalties....so that they have pillaged their churches and the adornments of their crucifixes and attacked their priests and monks. They assert that the books which the prophets brought are clear error, and that the Koran, the Torah and the Gospels are nothing but fakes and idle talk....that all men are equal in humanity, and alike in being men, none has any superiority of merit over any other, and every one himself disposes of his soul and arranges his own livelihood in this life....With counterfeit books and meretricious falsehoods they address themselves to every party and say: 'We belong to you, to your religion and to your community', and they make them vain promises, and utter fearful warnings. They are wholly given up to villainy and debauchery, and ride the steel of perfidy and presumption, and dive in the sea of delusion and oppression and are united under the banner of Satan."
(from a document in the Istanbul archives)
"In front of the central gate one encounters a statue of freedom; she has a staff in her hand and is seated on a chair. Her appearance and manner convey this meaning to spectators: 'O worthy visitors! When you look upon this fascinating display of human progress, do not forget that all these perfections are the work of freedom. It is under the protection of freedom that people and nations attain happiness. Without freedom, there can be no security; without security, no endeavor; without endeavor, no prosperity; without prosperity, no happiness!"

"All that the Pope and his men in the media want is social lawlessness resulting in economic collapse in Muslim countries-as is the situation in Sudan due to the Christian lawlessness-so as to exploit it under the pretext of the 'only political task of the Church' to evangelize Muslims. The Church needs to give up its love for lawlessness, anarchy and economic ruination as a means to proselytize the victimized people."

Ziya Gokalp (1914) (from a poem called Red Epic)
"For over seven years the United States has been occupying the lands of Islam in the holiest of places, the Arabian Peninsula, plundering its riches, dictating to its rulers, humiliating its people, terrorizing its neighbors, and turning its bases in the peninsula into a spearhead through which to fight the neighboring Muslim peoples. Good Muslims must fight and kill American civilians and soldiers wherever they can in accordance with the words of Almighty God."

"In the Al-Masih al-Dajjal,(the Anti-christ), Ayyub makes a single narrative of the world's past and future. It's a particularly dark telling of the divine novel, dominated by the antagonist- the dajjal, the Antichrist, at once a person and a faceless force, center of a Jewish conspiracy whose machinations explain history. In Ayyub's telling, every pope was a Jew. So was Martin Luther-who sent Jews to colonize America. So the U.S. "is now the principal center for the Jews," Ayyub says and "History bears witness that the United States of America, which has been occupied in all areas by the beliefs of the dajjal, is the chief enemy of Islam...."
The Antichrist, Ayyub asserts, is the Jews messiah. That idea also pops up in Christian prophecy writings, but mutedly-for philo-Semitic" Christians it means that, alas, the Jews will again be deceived. Ayyub brings out the full anti-Semitic potential: The Jews, he says 'took a messiah in keeping with their deeds and in accordance with their desires"-that is they follow evil incarnate because it fits their character."

"We believe that because we are on the side of truth, then we are on the side of God. And because God is with us, then everything shall be in our favor."
"We are the heirs of Sennacherib and Shalmaneser-the greatest heroes of our nation. We have inherited their glory. We have inherited their wisdom. We have inherited their valor. But most of all, we have inherited their cause. Assyria must once again unite the Arab world against the imperialism of the Infidel, the interloping of the West, and the encroachment of the Jew."
Hafez al Assad
Quoted in Ha Ubal Or, Jerusalem edition, Jan 3,1991
"The power struggle between Israel and the Arabs is a long-term historical trial. Victory of defeat are for us questions of existence of annihilation, the outcome of an irreconcilable hatred."
Al Riyadh Saud
"Every problem in our region can be traced to this single dilemma: the occupation of Dar al Islam by Jewish infidels or Western imperialists. Every political controversy, every boundary dispute, and every internal conflict is spawned by the inability of the Umma to faithfully successfully wage Ji'had. The everlasting struggle between Ishmael and Isaac cannot cease until one or the other is utterly vanquished."
Quoted in Al Qabas Kuwait Dec 19,1989
"We shall export our revolution to the whole world. Until the cry 'Allah Akbar" resounds over the whole world, there will be struggle. There will be Ji'had."
(ed note: I received this some years ago from Prince Aly Khan who at the time was the pretender to the throne of Albania. This was before the war in Kosovo, and I was curious to understand what Muslims thought of the situation...I am aware that not 'all Muslims' agree with this but a surprising number of educated Muslims would find them selves in agreement with many parts of this..as do a large number of Russians, many Japanese, and Americans. ...I am aware that such writing is strictly taboo in the U.S. but considering the events of 9/11 I think we should at least know what the real issues are...not that other people 'hate us for our freedom" as was officially proclaimed...For in fact if we are 'free' it seems we should be able to read what Billions of people all over the world consider the facts of the situation, and thereby be able to refute or grapple with the situation honestly.)

READ IN THE NAME OF GOD
This essay is in response to many requests that I explain the warring factions of Freemasonry that are now involving the world in the brewing of a great conflict. The origins of this dichotomy are derived from a very ancient primitive belief system which yet survives in modern Judaism and in Pauline Christianity. Before I launch into a lengthy discourse into the whys and wherefroms of these beliefs, it is incumbent on me as a Muslim to explain the Islamic view of man's current tribulations. As all three monotheistic religions agree, it all began with Adam's disobedience to Allah.
In Islam, Satan or Iblis is not a powerful angel. His is a lesser spirit, a jinn, created from a smokeless fire whose power is limited to suggesting wrongdoing to Adam's progeny. He is not an angel which is created from light(nur) and which is totally obedient to his Creator. That is why Muslims put their total trust in the revelation of the Quran which was delivered to Mohammed (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) by the Angel Gabriel. Gabriel, by the way, is the same Holy Spirit who delivered revelations to Daniel and Jesus (peace be upon them); and it is he of whom Jesus warned that to tell a lie was the unforgivable sin.
Allah ordered his creatures to bow to Adam and all complied except Satan and his followers. Feeling superior in his creation from energy and contemptuous of Adam's clay body, he vowed to even the score for Adam's superior creation by leading him and his offspring from the straight path of Allah to the path of perdition. This campaign's first success was achieved when Satan convinced Adam that his creation from clay was inferior and that if he partook of the forbidden tree that his clay physique would be transformed into one that was angelic. The tree's only significance was that it was one of Allah's creations and Allah can allow (make hallal) or forbid (make haram) any of His creation He pleases. it is the duty of all of Allah's creation to obey Him absolutely.
Adam and his wife ate of the tree and consequently corrupted their physical and moral natures. Because their disobedience was based upon a satanically induced dissatisfaction with Allah's choice of materials for their bodies, they developed a shame of their physical natures which had becomes less than perfect. During the process of listening to Satan, it is apparent that Adam and his wife had disrobed (Quran: Sura 7,Aya 27) perhaps giving Satan an opportunity to point in derision to Adam's sexual organs. This opportunity made Satan's triumph complete for he convinced Adam that his nature was inferior and not worthy of the adulation which his race of jinn and the angels were ordered to render to Adam. Adam, by accepting Iblis' interpretation of the order of Allah's intelligent creatures, had lowered himself and corrupted his body and his soul. Allah had originally created Adam as a caliph or vice-regent to govern the earth. Allah created all of His creatures to perform certain function which He commands. Man's function is to administer Allah's creation on earth and it was for this purpose that he taught Adam the names and nature of His creation. This duly would have been perfectly performed had not Adam corrupted his own nature. Before the fall, Adam understood perfectly the nature of the creation taught to him by Allah. Adam had not only his own self-corrupted nature to deal with upon his expulsion from the Garden, he also had to deal with Satan.
Adam became repentant after his disobedience and was granted a second chance. Satan was unrepentant, defiant and determined to bring about the destruction of Adam and his-offspring. The ultimate proof for Satan of the superiority of his nature over Adam's was that Adam would obey him and not Allah. Furthermore, Satan reasons that if he is doomed to an eternity in Hell then the reason for his accursed fate, Adam, should also suffer the same punishment.
Allah ordered both Satan and Adam from the Garden, but He did not abandon Adam to Satan's devices and his own newly corrupted nature. Allah also did not abandon His plan to place Adam as a caliph on earth. Instead he promised (Quran: S.2,A39) to send guidance through the angel Gabriel to prophets in the form of revelation. Allah had endowed Adam with a limited free will as well and the ability to acquire and understand knowledge. This free will is in the area of the moral law. The physical laws are immutable. Many may be able to understand the physical law and use it for his benefit but he cannot change it.
The physical laws are innumerable and likely make up more than 99% of the laws which govern Allah's creation. The moral law is infinitely less pervasive and governs the behavior of men and jinn. Nevertheless the moral law has physical, social, psychological, and spiritual consequences. For instance, disobeying the laws governing sexual purity results in the spread of disease, incest, fatherless children who reek havoc on society, increase in burdensome taxes, the diversion of public funds to social programs, outrageous medical expenses, costly crime prevention measures, a potentially explosive underclass, etc.; all from the failure to obey laws regarding decent sexual behavior.
Adam and his progeny were given free will only in the area of the moral law. From the condition in which society finds itself today, one can only praise the Wisdom of the Almighty that He withheld from man a similar choice regarding the physical law.
Allah sent numerous prophets and numerous revelations to guide mankind to the moral law; and make him understand his duty to Allah, to himself, to his fellow men and to Allah's creation on earth which had been placed under his limited control. Mankind either rejected, perverted, or deliberately failed to preserve these communications. An example of the revelations that are extant but altered are the Torah delivered to Israel by Moses (peace be upon him) and the Gospel delivered to Judah by Jesus . The final, uncorrupted (because it is preserved by Allah) revelation is the Quran delivered through the prophet Mohammed to all mankind as Allah promised in the Bible(see the pamphlet, Mohammed. A Prophecy Fulfilled). The combination of the Prophet's sayings (Hadiths), is life (seera) and the Quran make up the great Moral Law or Shariah. The Shariah is the formula by which Muslims are ordered by Allah to establish man's appointed viceregency on earth. Because man has corrupted his own nature and because of Satan's untiring effort to lead man astray, the Caliphate can never be perfect. Perfection is for the Hereafter. Therefore, the Shariah is a formula to make this earth which has since Adam sinned, become a place of trial, into a place where man can live as harmoniously, as comfortably and as peacefully as possible in his present state of imperfection.
The establishment of an Islamic state is imperative for mankind. Without an Islamic state, the Shariah cannot function; and the Satan inspired secular laws will prevail to the detriment of all of Allah's earthly creatures. It is the efforts of these satanic forces embodied in the secular systems of government , where man's laws prevail over Allah's laws, which are currently battling to destroy any movement to establish an Islamic state. It is the origins and rise to power of these man-made, Satan-inspired systems to which the remainder of this discourse is addressed.
It is clear from the study of the many differing primitive to modern religions that most of them believe in a pervasive creator god. He might be called Mulungu in East Africa or Tezcatlepoca by the Aztecs of Anulil by the ancient Sumerians, or Atom by the ancient Egyptians or Brahmanaspai by the Hindus, or YAHWEH by the Israelites, or God, Theos, Dios by the Europeans or Allah by the Muslims. All adherents of the monotheistic religions agree that man "instinctively" recognizes and is supposed to worship the Supreme Being. All other deities are Satan-inspired and man developed. Accepting this truth as a "given" is the basis for understanding the man evolved religions and the social systems that arose from the application of these beliefs to society.
The most ancient man-made beliefs are rooted in fertility cults that may go back to 70,000 B.C. to the arrival of Adam's offspring towards the end or the fourth phase of the Pleistocene Ice Age. The fertility cults focused on the use of magic and ritual to insure the abundance of game. The pregnant female form carved in stone is the evidence upon which anthropologists derive these conclusions.
Man progressed from the hunter-gatherer lifestyle to one of agriculture. Agricultural success depends on knowledge of when to plant and when to harvest. These dates were calculated by the position of celestial orbs in certain seasons. These celestial orbs were endowed with the male and female genders of their predecessors who were animal and human gods.
As man moved into an urban society, the agricultural astral gods were assigned human forms. Egypt was an exception with its animal headed, human bodied gods. Thus, the bull which was worshipped as a male fertility god also became associated with the sun. The bull/sun god was worshipped in urban societies as Dionysius and Mithra. Because the sun was associated with light the sun gods were often endowed with the characteristics of morality and intelligence as was Ra of Egypt, Mitra of India, Marduk of Babylon, Mithra of Rome and Apollo of Greece.
The earth and the moon are both associated with the female principle. The earth's association with motherhood was derived from the analogy of the planted seed and the bearing of fruit from the earthy womb (soil). The moon's female association arose from its position as the lesser of the two great luminaries, and from the moon's importance in calculating the limes for planting and harvesting. The earth goddess is variously known as Kali of India, Isis of Egypt, Ishtar of Babylon and Venus of Rome.
The offspring and sometimes the male consort of the goddess is the grain god. The grain god's position in the pantheon was determined by concluding that he was the result of the sun sky, god's fertilizing effect on the earth goddess' womb. The grain god often has the peculiar ability to die and be raised to life in imitation of the fertile seed being gleaned from the dead stalk. The grain god is variously named as Tammuz of Babylon and Adonis of Rome.
As these fertility cults developed, the worshiper began to equate his own procreative powers to his sky/creator god's creative powers. The equation was probably reached when , in order to insure the abundance of his food supply and his own ability to reproduce in adequate numbers, man as priest began to use sex in a ritualistic , magic way. The priest representing the sun/sky god would have ritualistic and public intercourse with a priestess or female devotee who represented the earth goddess. The resulting good harvest and fecund females were then attributed to the priest who, in the minds of the worshipers, shared in the divinity of the, god he originally meant only to imitate. The culmination of the deification of the human being came in the form of king/priest worship as Pharoah worship in Egypt and king worship in Babylon and Rome
The idea of man becoming god survives today in a more plebeian form than that practiced in ancient societies. Ordinary men can become gods in Hinduism and Buddhism by being born into the right caste and learning the correct knowledge and behavior. These religions recognize the imperfection of human nature and so allow the god-aspirant more than one chance to achieve divinity. Thus, the concept of reincarnation was introduced. This concept has long since crept in Judaism and is found in New Age forms of Christianity as well.
It is not only reincarnation that has crept into the teachings of Jesus. There are many elements in modern Christianity which smack of the ancient fertility cults and none of this was either taught or advocated by the Prophet. The finger of blame for the adulteration of Jesus' teachings points directly to Paul of Tarsus, a Roman citizen of the tribe of Benjamin.
Paul had been infected with the ideas of the fertility cults as well as the intricate logic twisting of the Greeks and Romans. The Jews had acquired this pagan mixture from the Greeks and Romans who occupied Palestine, from the Babylonians during their 70 years of enslavement, from their association with the surrounding pagan tribes in Palestine, and from their sojourn in Egypt from the time of Joseph (peace be upon him) until they were led away by Moses.
In addition to the inclusion of pagan religion and philosophy into the teachings of the Prophets of Israel, the concept of racial superiority was becoming a Pharisaic doctrine. To Paul's credit , he included the Toraicly unclean into his congregation. However, the idea persisted with the many Judaeans who did not convert to Paul's beliefs.
The concept of racial superiority was advocated and put into practice by the Aryans by the Aryans in the form of the present Hindu caste system. The Aryans drew the color distinction when they conquered the dark skinned Dravids who inhabited the Indus Valley before their lighter skinned Aryan conquerors arrived on the scene. Other Indian ideas as a remote, passive, creator god; an intermediate deity (VAch, the Word) and other deities that held sway over the fortunes of men also traveled with the Indian gods into Asia, the Middle East and Europe. For instance Dyaus Pitar, the Indian sky god, became Zeus Pater in Greece and Jupiter in Rome, Deus Pater is also Latin for God the Father. Paul was certainly responsible for promoting some of these ideas in his theology for they survive in modern Christianity. They survive, as well, in Talmudic Judaism and Freemasonry.
They were prime elements in the development of the Cabala and its spin-offs, Christian and Judaic Gnosticism which have occupied occult thought since its arrival in Palestine from about the 2nd century B.C.
In contrast to these paganizing influences, Jesus, according to Matthew 5:17,18,19, upheld the theology and Law of Moses and the teaching of the Prophets. Jesus states: Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever, therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach then; the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
Paul's concept of the Christ as the sacrificial demiurge as propounded in John 1:1-4 not only violated the first commandment: "I am the Lord they God, thou shalt not have strange gods before Me," it also violated another Mosaic law (Deut. 21:22) as Paul himself acknowledges in Galatians 3:10-13 which begins: "For as many as are the works of the law are under the curse....Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree."
The Christian belief that Jesus was crucified (biblically hanged on a tree) removed from him that aura of perfection which he required to be a participant in the divinity of God. For this reason, the Talmudic scholars vilified Jesus in their books. The references for this vilification are: Sanhedrin, 67a, Kallah, 1b,18b, Sandhedrin, 43a, Toliat Jeschu, Abhodah Zarah, 11 to name a few. The Muslims do not believe that the Prophet Jesus was crucified. It was rather made to appear to the Jews that he had been.
This Mosaic law regarding crucifixion was not the only imperfection the personage of Jesus as described by the authors of the Gospels had to overcome. Matthew 1:3 &5 puts Jesus outside of the congregation of God. According to the genealogy of Matthew, Jesus is a descendant of Perez, the bastard son of Judah and also of Ruth, a Moabite woman. Deut. 23:2 & 3 forbids the inclusion of either bastards of Moabites into the congregation of the Lord, forever."
Paul's interpretation of Christ as the risen sacrificial demiurge (Romans 3:25) is also a violation of the law of Moses. Deut. 24:16 states: The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: "every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
Since the law of Moses shoots down the idea of vicarious atonement (dying for someone else's sin), an idea which is the core of the belief promulgated by Paul, Paul decided that the only remedy for his doctrinal conflicts with the Torah was to dispossess himself and his followers of the law altogether (Roman 7:6 and Galatians 3:13).
Paul was "a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees (Acts 23:6) and as such was from one of the two competing branches of Judaism (the other being the Sadducees) upon whom Jesus heaped the invectives of "hypocrites, wicked and adulterous, whited sephulcres, generation of vipers and sons of satan." There was good reason for Jesus' vitriputive condemnations. The Pharisees had been busily reinterpreting the Law of Moses and introducing their Cabalistic beliefs into these interpretations for two hundred years before the birth of Jesus. The task resulted in the production of 63 books which are the Talmud of Rabbinical Judaism today, and which were completed around the year 500 A.D. The culmination of 700 years of effort is the Babylonian Talmud which contains enough Babylonian mysticism, magic, numerology, racism, perversions, etc. to make any Pharisee fully deserving of Jesus' scathing remarks.
To add to this confused jumble of Talmudic twisted logic was enough stoic philosophy which along with Babylonian mythology (much of which made its way from India) was sufficient for Paul to raise Jesus to a position of demiurge which was against everything Jesus preached. It was also a position which Paul could not defend under Mosaic law. Paul cut the law loose and declared that faith in his deified Jesus was sufficient for salvation. The door was now wide open for the replacement of the Mosaic law by secular man made laws. In this case it was Roman law, the laws of the pagan colonizers of Palestine, that filled the void created by Paul. And with the Roman law in came all of the paganism which surrounded Roman culture including their form of democracy as borrowed from the Greeks.
It was Paul who first separated church and state and not the framers of the U.S. Constitution. For the first time the congregation of God was left searching the pagan legal annals for the difference between right and wrong: moral and immoral. It was the Roman Church that amalgamized the pagan laws and the demiurge of Paul into an institution that ruled the European soul until the Reformation.
The Roman Church was a syncretic mixture of Palestinian monotheism, Greek Philosophy. Christian gnosticism and pagan festivals. Former pagan deities became saints and the chief of the Indian/Greek/Roman pantheon, Dyaus (Zeus/Jupiter had his name transposed onto the God of Moses. Elohim became known as Deus Pater or simply Deus which is a dialectical pronunciation Zeus. Elohim has been worshipped under this pagan god's name for two millennia for this paganism survives in the languages of Europe as dieu, dios, dio, and theos.
Since Zeus had sons(and daughters) by the tons, it was no wonder that pagan Europe accepted Jesus as a son of Deus. Pagan holidays were substituted for the Mosaic holidays. Roman paganism found a new life in the name of Jesus. Besides the name of Jesus, the only other piece of the Mosaic religion that survived was token salute to the Passover. This takes place in church ritual under the name of holy communion. However, under Roman auspices, this feast degenerated into ritual cannibalism as the Roman Church taught that in partaking of the bread and wine, the participants were actually munching on the transubstantiated (magically transformed )body and blood of their "lord" Jesus.
The Roman Church reigned supreme as the harbinger of Christian doctrine and soon set about to obliterate every trace of their god's killer's heritage. The clean slate policy had begun around 70 A.D. before Rome had added Jesus to their pantheon. By the year 133 of the Bar Kochba Revolt, more than one million Judeans had been massacred. The remainder of Judah wended their way back to Babylon to work on their pagan/Judaic tome, the Babylonian Talmud (a very apt name since it means Babylonian studies which is the real topic of this work). Islam invaded old Babylon and protected the remnant of Israel who saw a chance in the 9th century to convert a wild, pagan, Turkic tribe residing in western Russia to their Talmudic beliefs. This tribe which had formed a state of more than a million inhabitants called the Khazar Kingdom moved into Europe before the Russian advance. Two of their descendants, Karl Marx who formulated the dialectical materialism of the Soviet Union and Theodore Herzl who founded Zionism, greatly influenced the course of modern history.
The Roman Church, the core of the European Holy Roman Empire, was an oppressive institution which tolerated no challenge to its spiritual authority. This institution single-handedly plunged Europe into the Dark Ages while at the same time the Middle East, Africa and Spain were experiencing an Age of Enlightenment under the encouragement of Islamic scientists and scholars. It was not until the rise of homocentricism in the form of the revival of ancient Greek philosophy that Europe was able to begin to throw off the yoke of unquestioning adherence to Church interpreted doctrines. The Renaissance demanded that man question. Martin Luther questioned and Europe entered the Reformation.
The Protestant spin-offs of the Roman Church began to weed out the most glaring paganisms as Mary and saint worship; and the communion was reinstituted as an imitation of Jesus' last Passover. Stripped of much of Rome's pagan splendors, the new Christian churches were austere and frankly, not much fun. Ritual and preaching could only go so far to satisfy the Christian descendants of pagan Europe.
Some Protestant churches, the Anglican Church notably, had endeavored to discover new roots in Palestine by enlisting themselves under the "God Chosen" people of Moses. To accomplish their new status, the English mythologized their ancestry as descendants of the "Lost Ten Tribes.
The English were especially fond of this idea for it made them "naturally" superior to the dark skinned souls of Africa and Asia whom they were brutalizing under colonialism. Their North American cousins were practicing the same form of racism on the native inhabitants of their newly independent nation. To the South, the Catholic Spaniards were dispatching their new world natives of Central and South America to that burning nether world prescribed for them by the Church.
Despite Evidence to the contrary, it appears that about the middle of the 17th century, certain Anglican clergy formed the first Masonic Order. They did this, perhaps, to introduce some ancient world excitement into their sterilized doctrines. The parliamentary monarchy which governed their lives was secular as prescribed by Paul in Romans 13. They dutifully obeyed the secular monarch who was also, curiously, the head of their church. There was little excitement and no mystery in government ceremonies and church ritual. One can easily imagine that the clergy who were multilingual scholars whose language repertoire included Hebrew, Greek, and Latin as well as their native tongue delving into esoteric thought. As language experts they had access to many of the ancient tomes denied to the illiterate lower classes. The clergy must have amused themselves by searching the Cabala and the Gnostic doctrines for the origins of Christian ritual and doctrine. Greek philosophy was definitely on their agenda as its study was the staple of the university curriculum. Through the colonial efforts of their monarch, the exotic eastern religions were not unknown to the English intellectuals. The doctrines of the Talmud were also known to Christendom as it was one of the most burned-at-the-stake books in Europe. The idea of a remote god as expounded in Hinduism and Stoicism who was a passive source of creation was not a particularly revolutionary thought. The remote god, the deity of Deism of the Age of Reason, who created and then removed himself fit the political times. After all it wasn't Moses' Creator who was actively involved with his people that directed the Christian's political life or his church. It was a secular parliament which issued the man instituted directives which decided what was or was not allowed.
The remote deity of Hinduism was Ekam Sal and he became the En Sof of the Cabala as well as the remote deity of Deism and masonry. Other ideas as Paul's "Body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12) concept was first expressed by the Hindus in their Primeval Man, Purusha, who shows up in the Cabala/Gnostic doctrines as Adam Kadmon. In Masonic lore, it is the brotherhood of Freemasons which forms the "Sacred Body." Paul's "Christ as demiurge" was derived from a widely expressed notion; appearing as Mitra in India, Mithra in Rome, the Metatron of the Cabala, the Logos of Philo and the Great Architect of the Universe (GAOTU) of the Masons. The Metatron was the male principle as symbolized by the sun. The pagan/Gnostic sun symbol is used by the Masons to represent their GAOTU/Metatron, Jesus, in the case of the Christian Mason and Enoch for the Jewish Mason. The Masonic symbol is the Egyptian obelisk which represents a ray of the sun. The other eight heavenly hosts included the moon and seven planets who, with the sun, represented the nine lesser creator gods. They were the Asuras of Hinduism who made their way into the Cabala as the Sephirot. In Masonic doctrine, the Sephirot are transformed into the Masters of the Universe or Adepti and illuminati of the 33rd degree. These masons are the gods about whom a Gnostic doctrine explains as, "....a group of select people who bridge the abyss separating the human from the divine and rise from a spirit perverse to an understanding of God and stand in one company before God with the everlasting host and the spirits of knowledge to be renewed with all things that are...." This ancient doctrine is repeated in Psalm 82 where the select are the gods. "God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods."
These antique notions mixed together with the ideas of racial superiority and self salvation through faith alone combined to make a syncretic belief system which could not be openly professed to the public. A secret society was formed and to give it legitimacy, the English aristocracy was invited to participate. They called themselves masons.
The British nobility entered the Masonic order at the top for as Paul said in Romans 13, all souls were subject to God's appointed earthly rulers. Romans 13 is the origin of Christian Europe's monarchial doctrine of the "Divine Right of Kings." As for the lower classes, they would have to purify themselves slowly in what eventually became 33 stages(one for each year of Jesus' earthly life) before they were allowed into the circle of the ruling "gods." They had to achieve this status by divesting themselves of their ignorant natures through a process of gradual "enlightenment." The Hindu achieved divinity over centuries of climbing the caste system through a process of repeated deaths and rebirths until he reached Nirvana. The Englishman was an inheritor of god status through his supposed descent from the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. As a tribal member, he was a born god whether he knew it or not . Psalm 82 said as much: "I myself have said, Ye are gods."
These earthly, self-styled gods had a mission; to return to the land of their "tribes" to rebuild the Temple of Solomon as their Ancestors had done 3000 years before. Jesus, the GAOTU, could not return to rule the earth and convert the Jews unless his house was first completed. Tying on his symbolic fig leaf, Adam's apron, trowel in the English Mason was prepared to lay the cornerstone as soon as an auspicious time presented itself. As he awaited the call for his Masonic skills, the Englishman proved his racial superiority over the non-whites of the world by colonizing their countries and commandeering for himself their resources; all for God, Country and the Freemason Brotherhood. It was also because of the necessities for controlling the non-white populations of their colonies that the brotherhood eventually admitted darker skins as Semitic Arabs and Aryan Hindus. However in English Freemasonry, only white Christian males are allowed into the Supreme Council of the 33rd degree.
Masonry spread to the rest of the European continent and to the Americas. (it was under continental influence that masonry evolved its final 33 degrees in the 18th century.) The English masons, in order to extend their influence to the other governments of Europe, thought it expedient to include other European nationalities into their organization. After all, they rationalized, it was certainly possible that as the Lost Ten Tribes migrated from the Middle East to the British Isles that some of the tribes settled in lands their itinerary had brought them through. It was not unthinkable that other racially acceptable countries as France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and maybe, even Ireland were also descendants of the wandering Israelites. They too may be born gods who were ignorant of their divine birth right. The English mason welcomed their European brethren into the chosen flock. Especially welcome were the wealthy aristocrats for wealth brought prestige and power. European lodges were not as selective about screening initiates and revolutionaries as well as charlatan practitioners of the black arts of the Cabal became members. European monarchs also had Machiavellian designs on other European kingdoms. It was Fredrich the Great of Prussia who designed the 32nd degree as a means to gather the nations of Europe into one nations, under his power, of course. While the European intelligentsia schemed, lesser lights of society also joined..
In England, the lower class initiates were an unforeseen boon to the Masonic orders. Their willingness to undergo the humiliating symbolic fertility rituals and blood curdling oaths showed that they were willing to obey their masters of the higher degrees. These initiates of the lower degrees were used to consolidate the power of the higher degree masons by acting as spies and as a fifth column in the private businesses and government offices in which they held positions. They were a ready source of information for their masters.
It is a coincidence that the rise of the Masonic lodges in the seventeenth century coincided with the founding of the House of Rothschild in Europe. By the nineteenth century, The European nobility had overcome its antipathy to the supposed progeny of the Christ killers and they admitted them into the nobility. The Rothschilds were descendants of that Turkic tribe which were converted to Talmudic Judaism in the ninth century A.D. They were astute bankers and it was undoubtedly their hold on the European money supply that gained them, a grudging acceptance from the aristocrats. (Before the Jews were officially accepted into European nobility, the aristocrats had used them as confidants in the occult practices for which they were renowned from medieval times. They also made useful secret envoys as well as being convenient sources of capital. The Jews appear to have made their way into the French lodges as early as the 18th century. The jew Stephen Morin was sent by the Duc de Clermont and the Grand Lodge of Paris to establish a Grand Lodge in America. It was he who introduced Jews into the hierarchy of American Masonry.)
The Talmudic jew was familiar with doctrines of racial superiority and gnosticism for these ideas pervade his Babylonia Talmud. The Talmud also taught absolute abhorrence for the Christians and for their Messiah. The Talmud accuses Jesus of being the bastard son of a Roman soldier and a Jewish harlot and as such he could not be accepted as the GAOTU by a jews. (See the TAlmud,Sanhedrin.67a)Enoch who walked with God, was a fitting substitute.
Associating with Christians that were once dedicated to the annihilation of the Jew must have been difficult for the Khazar (European, nonsemitic jew of Turkic origin). The Talmud taught that the gentile was the son of Eve and Satan; a mixture which resulted in a creature who had an animal soul but whose form was human (Zohar 1,28b) and Kidduschim (68a). The creature was to be killed (Abodah Zarah 26b) or if that was impossible, he was to be avoided for he was unclean (Kethuboth 110b). Luckily for the banker, Rothschild, the Talmud (Tore Dea 159,1)recommended dealing with the Christian in matters of usury. Usury was one method the jew used to reclaim his property from the animal-souled gentile(Babha Balhra 54b) for the earth was the jew's as a promise from God to Adam (Genesis 1:28) and Adam was the father of the Israelite nation. The rest of the earth's people were imitation sons of Adam who could not share in the Jew's divine inheritance. The jew had to wait for the prophecy of the Talmudic book, Obadiam , that Israel would be redeemed when Rome was destroyed; Rome of course meant Europe and its colonies. Till that event happened, the Khazar jew would to bide his time among the gentiles and use their institutions to further his agenda of "reclaiming the world for God's Chosen People. The Masonic lodges were an institution that had crossed the European national boundaries as had the Rothschild family which was now in England, France, Germany and Italy. The upper echelon of the Masonic order was populated by Gentiles from the European aristocracy. The money and the power were in their hands and there would go the Khazar to wheedle from the unsuspecting Gentile (non-Jew) what he could.
The bloody oaths that the Khazar might be forced to take as a member of the Masonic order would have no binding effect upon him for the Khazar had taken a previous oath, the Kola Nidre, on the Day of Atonement which stated: "All vows, obligations, oaths, anathemas, whether called 'konam', 'konas', or by any other name, which we may vow, or swear, or pledge, or whereby we may be bound, from this Day of Atonement unto the next, (whose happy coming we await), we do repent. May they be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, and void and made of no effect: they shall not bind us nor have power over us. The vows shall not be reckoned vows; the obligations shall not be obligatory; nor the oaths be oaths." Accordingly, the Khazar jew was free to take any and all oaths as none would be binding; and to do this with a clear conscience for the Talmud (lore Dea 157,21) recommended that Christians, even if they were of the brotherhood be deceived by the Chosen of God.
The Khazar awaited the annihilation of the goy aristocracy. But before the event took place, it was advantageous to use the common goals they shared for the benefit of the Talmudic's agenda; World domination through European colonialism was already in process. The European supremacists had already spread into the continents of the darker races. The land of the dark skinned peoples contained untold mineral wealth. Surely the Khazar could influence his gentile mason brother into allowing an initially small share for himself. The goy mason also had ambitions to rebuild the Temple of Solomon; something to which the Khazar had aspired since his conversion in the 9th century. Surely, his goy mason brother of the Lost Ten Tribes would aid his Khazar brother, who claimed an unbroken lineage to Judah and Levi, to reclaim the land of his supposed heritage. The Balfour Declaration made this Khazar aspiration a reality. Darwin's The Origin of Species,, assigned an animal origin to man. It was more than convenient that the Talmud drew a similar conclusion regarding the souls of the Gentiles. Marx prescribed a system which would divest the gentiles of their private property. To the Talmudic Jew, the socialists mandates for the gentile aristocracy and their holdings were parallel with the commandments of the Talmud. Nietzche advocated atheism, a philosophical position which could not harm a race whose souls were unredeemable. As for Freud, tracing the disturbances of the psyche to the failings of the gentile family and social order only prepared the gentile for, the better ordered world of the Talmudic Khazar. The New World Order (the novus ordo seculorum or New World Order is printed under the Masonic seal on the back of the dollar bill)was about to dawn and the Khazar planned to be sitting on the throne as the sun rose upon him and simultaneously set for the gentile, who, by the way, unwittingly financed and fought for this end.
Sometime during the end of the nineteenth or the beginning of the 20th century, the Masonic Brotherhood of White Supremacists decided to split the world with their brother Khazar mason. To accomplish this, they had to break the back of the Ottoman Empire, better known to the Muslims as the Ottoman Caliphate. The Khazars attempted this feat by lending the Turks money as usurious rates and then demanding Palestine be exchanged for forgiveness of debt. The Zionist mission which included the founder of this movement, Theodore Herzl and several noted international financiers, were refused by Sultan ABdul Hamid and the English and the Americans, with ample financing from the Khazar bankers, caused the downfall of the Islamic state in World War I. At the same time, according to the Protocol agenda (The Protocol's of the Learned Elders of Zion; is a book which explains the methods by which the Khazar mason's of the 33rd degree planned to dominate the world), the Khazar took advantage of and/or financed the events which annihilated the power of the European aristocracy.
The Protocols called for the establishment of a socialist state in which the European nobility and their gentile subjects would be relieved of their property. The Khazars set about doing just that with the Bolshevik Revolution. The revolution eventually put the workers, the land, the mineral wealth, and the industries under the control of a Politburo which was under the total domination of the Soviet Khazar. Western governments not only sat back and watched these events come to pass, they actively financed the new Soviet State.
Debt may have also played a a part in the attitudes of the Europeans and Americans towards the formation and expansion of the Russian socialist state. Europe and the U.S. borrowed heavily to finance World Wars I and II. They may not have been in a position to control the investments of the very jewish banks from which they had borrowed. The establishment of a Federal Reserve Board which had control of the U.S. money supply and was made up of mainly European banking institutions played a major role in global investment. This agency, which is comprised of private banks; aided in the establishment of the United Nations. So, Khazar global interests wre part and parcel of U.S. and U.N. global interests. (The U.N. at the time of the establishment of the Soviet state was known as the League of Nations.)It is likely that for these reasons the Jewish banking houses of M.M. Warburg of Hamburg, Kuhn Loeb and Co. of the United States (owned by Jacob Schiff), Lazard Freres of Paris, Speyer & Co. of London, New York and Frankfurt/Main and the "Nye" banks in Stockholm were allowed to finance the Bolshevik revolution and the establishment of the U.S.S.R. The mistake was serious but not obvious to the Western powers that adopted a benign attitude toward the Kremlin while it built one of the most powerful military machines the world had yet seen.
The Russo-Khazar military machine first marched into states in which the European colonizers had little interest but they soon were threatening the colonial strongholds of the oil saturated Middle East, the strategic islands of the Caribbean, the tiny states of Central America which were proximate to the vital mercantile passage, the Panama Canal, as well as the emerging independent African states, the former states of French Indo-China and China itself. In the later half of the 1980s, the Russian money sources dried up as Europe and America plunged into a recession. The Soviet state collapsed, but Europe and America had enough interest in the raw resources of this country to keep it on their friendly list.
The great jewish Khazar experiment failed and the West moved quickly into the Middle East to secure the oil reserves before the Khazar financial base could recover. A war was devised by England and America against Iraq in which Iraq was lured into Kuwait by the American ambassador to Iraq, with collusion from the Kuwaiti ruling family, the Sabahs. Noriega of Panama was approached by the C.I.A. with a similar scheme to allow the U.S. invasion of Nicaragua as he testified in his trial. Noriega refused and a 40 year jail sentence was the reward for his non-cooperation. The resulting invasion of Panama cost thousands of innocent civilians their lives. The devastation to Iraq as a result of the illegal Gulf War(the U.N. Charter forbids interference by this institution into border disputes and the U.S. Constitution states that only Congress can declare war and not the president who had already more than a quarter of a million troops in Arabia before even consulting Congress) was not only in the 200,000 casualties but the loss of almost all of its infrastructure as water towers, sewage plants, civilian industries, schools, and hospitals which were deliberately bombed. The aim of this bombing policy was stated by President Bush when he stated that he would bomb Iraq back, into a pre-industrial state. Meanwhile the Arabian Peninsula was put under the U.S. military occupation on the pretext of protecting the world(the oil barons of the U.S. and Europe) oil supply. It would seem that the European mason would not have to share the world with his brother Khazar after all. The New World Order had been established on the aftermath of the Gulf War and Israel was still not included in the inner security council of the United Nations. The Khazar is now backed into a corner and his teeth are the still powerful financial institutions stock markets and khazar controlled media of Europe and America.
It was obvious from the speed with which the Kremlin dominated ethnic groups had declared independence from the Soviet Union, that the gentiles were not happy with the society that the socialist/mason writers of the Protocols had imposed upon them. There was going to be no support from these long suffering national groups for the Khazar who ruled a politburo that had subjected them to seventy years of terror and oppression. The method by which the Khazar planned to gain Eastern and Western Christian support was an appeal to Christian prophetic beliefs which were often exploited by the Khazar in the Jewish controlled Western media (all three major networks, ABC, NBC, and CBS were founded by jews). The rebuilding of the temple of Solomon, according to Jewish/Christian/Masonic belief is the culmination of the Jewish return prophecy.
Israel is a small state but it is armed with nuclear weapons. The mason white supremacist who controls many of the multinational industries may be willing for Israel to rebuild the Temple if the cost to the stability of the Arab world is not too great. The millennial year 2001 (millennial years are biblically significant for Christians) of the Christian calendar is the appointed date for the final reconstruction which must begin soon if the seven years of building is to be done according to biblical mandates. The Muslim reaction to the destruction of their holy places of Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock Mosque is expected to be violent and severe control measures are now being instituted by the government in the region. Muslim movements are being harassed and their members are being tortured and killed by the Masonic rulers who were appointed by their former colonial masters. Any attempt at the establishment of an Islamic state is violently suppressed even if this achievement is brought about by democratic majority mandate as in Algeria. In the West, propaganda for the building of the "third" temple is already in the media and in print as Randal Price's book, Ready to Rebuild, indicates. The Jews of the 33rd Masonic degree. The B'nai B'rith brag in the Protocols that a Jew will reign yet over the world from the throne of David.
The Khazar use of the millennial year for the completion of the temple is a ploy. The Masonic calendar is solar and for this order. The year is Anno Lucis 5992. The Jewish religious calendar, however is lunar, not solar, and the date is just past the middle of the 5th millennia and not approaching the 2nd millennia as the Christian counts. The ploy is designed to garner Christian support against the expected Muslim reaction to the destruction of the holy sites in Jerusalem (Al Aqsa mosque was constructed in the 7th century to rededicate the Christian desecrated original site of the Temple which was destroyed by Rome in 70 A.D.) The Khazar hopes that Christendom will accept their manufactured messiah king as the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is the mason Christian's expectation that Jesus will return to the temple no mater who builds it and the Jew will be converted to Christianity. There is much propaganda for promoting both ideas. Both scenarios have either a Jew or a Christian mason ruling the world in conjunction with their respective messiahs. The institution of the ruler ship in Jerusalem signals the finality of world domination by the Master Race.
The making of this Master Race was presented in the movie, 2001, A Space Odyssey, The object of this film is to present to the public in a symbolic way, the doctrines and ambitions of the masons. The film begins with a musical salute to the Master Race and was especially composed for Hitler as a celebration of his Third Reich. The opening scene finds the viewer in the company of groups of Darwinian hominids (premen). A monolith appears, and through a series of tests, influences one from among the hominids to be dissatisfied with his present condition. The dissatisfaction leads the leader hominid to think of methods to improve his condition which he does at the expense of his fellow hominids of a different race. The competitive spirit is born and the survival of the fittest, the fittest is the monolith chosen hominid, results in the hominid evolving into space age man.
Space age man chases the monolith to the moon from where the monolith leaps to Titan, a moon of Jupiter. The astronauts take off for Titan in a computer controlled ship. HAL, the computer , begins to eliminate his human cargo except for one who survives by disconnecting HAL.
The surviving astronaut takes a shuttle craft to Titan where the monolith acts as a door through which he plunges into a dazzling display of colored lights. The end of the journey of lights is in a green lighted room where the phone book has bleared names and blue stuff fills the cereal box.
The astronaut finds himself watching himself age into an old man who eventually retires to a bed above which appears a Ferris wheel like object. Soon a fetus explodes from Titan and wends its way through the universe imposing its will on some planets and creating others. The key to this film about the dominance of the Masonic Illuminati is the year 2001, the year after the Temple of Solomon is slated for completion is:
1. The monolith is the instrument of the Metatron. The Masonic equivalent is the obelisk which is supposed to represent a phallus and a ray of the sun; the implication being enlightenment from the Great Male Principle. The human form of the male principle is the Metatron/Demiurge, GAOTU who is jesus or Enoch depending on whether you are a Christian or Jewish mason. The Jews may even regard their ruling messiah as the Metatron reincarnated under another name. This belief is indicated in Matt. 16:13-15 when the Jews indicated to Jesus that some regarded him as Elijah returned from the dead. The obelisk became the monolith door in the film. The door is the way knowledge of the Mason inspired Bahai faith.
2. The smart apes are the Chosen Ones (adepti/Illuminati) in their state of ignorance before being enlightened by the Masonic doctrines. Masons do not believe in Darwin's theories, but they promote them at every opportunity. It is easier to control a people who believe they are only a higher form of animal. People who think of themselves as special creations of God might demand the humane treatment they know is their God given right.
3. HAL, is the Hebrew word "Ha El," meaning Creator God. HAL is disconnected because of the adepti plan to substitute their Gnostic beliefs for the traditional religious beliefs. In this movie traditional religion is portrayed as dangerous to man's survival as well as a hindrance to man's understanding of his "true self."
4. Jupiter represents the Remote God. Jupiter is a corruption of the Hindu God, Dyaus Pitar. God the father is worshipped under his name in the West as Deus, Dios, etc.
5. The journey of lights represents the enlightenment of the adepti through Masonic doctrine.
6. The moons Titan, has a double significance. The race of Titans, or giants in Greek mythology, were the fathers of the gods. So, Titan represents a return to origins or penetrating the apparent to reach the real. This is what is supposed to happen to the mason as he becomes indoctrinated into Masonic ritual and belief. The moon also has female associations and as such represents a return to the womb (of knowledge) to reach one's true self. The fetus is the essential human being.
7. The bleary phone book represents the annihilation of self as required by a Hindu in order to reach Nirvana or divinity. The names in the phone book are also the names of citizens of the locale for which the book is issued. The blurring of the names could mean the gradual disappearance of citizenship and the blending of the citizens of all nations into a borderless New World Order.
8. The wheel above the reclining man is the greater wheel of Buddhism. Its disappearance represents a release from reincarnation, and the achievement of divinity. It also represents the attainments of the 33rd degree in masonry.
9. The fetus is the Star Baby or a Master of the Universe. In Masonic belief, he is an adepti or illuminate who on earth is destined to rule the lesser divinity deprived humans. After death when he is resurrected as a risen god, he will rule his own corner of the universe as a minor creator god like the Sephirot of the Cabala.
10. The sequel to this film, 2010, actually demonstrates the rule of the Metatrons which appear as two suns after the explosion of Jupiter. The masons had decided before the demise of the U.S.S.R. to split the world between their respective messiahs who would rule in conjunction after the annihilation of Deus Pater or God the Father, who represents the deity of all of the older or premasonic religions. He had to be destroyed in order for the New World Order to function harmoniously. It seems that the world would have been given a choice to either worship the god of the Christian mason or the god of the Khazar mason. This Masonic plan for the New World Order was scrapped with the eclipse of the Khazar sun.
The Khazar hopes that his sun will again shine with the rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon, the rule of the world order from the throne of David in Jerusalem. To this end, his agenda is before the public, especially on the Christian broadcasting networks.
The Masonic agenda is pervasive throughout the educational system. Children are being taught that Darwin's theory of evolution is a scientific fact. This teaching plays right into the Talmudic beliefs of the Khazar mason. The Masonic directive of the creation of a One World Order is being pushed in the United Nations (a Masonic institution which is an outgrowth of the 32nd degree of masonry which was instituted by King Frederich of Prussia to bring all countries under one head. Franklin Roosevelt who established the U.N. was a mason), where treaties are being signed in which individual nations compromise the rights of their citizens. The Khazar hope is that the future headquarters for this one world government will be Jerusalem and that the seat of government will be throne of David upon which will be sitting a Khazar king who will be trained by the masons (see the Protocols, chapters XXII and XXIII). The Muslim, of course, will not buy into this scenario. A divine ruler is not in his theology. The Muslim is expecting a dajjal or "anti-Christ" figure much as the Christians are expecting a false messiah. The mason trained king of Jerusalem fits the description of this person very well. However, the Muslims will overcome him with the establishment of an Islamic state in Palestine with a very human caliph as its ruler.
The Khazar, through media control, the banking system and through the stock market has extensive influence in the West. He is the international financier and as a holder of debt controls the strings of corporations, nations, and their citizens. The multinational industrialist cannot lightly dismiss the international financier even though his great socialist experiment failed. The multinational industrialist has his fortunes intertwined with the Jewish financiers of the same lodge. If the financier goes down, he will likely drag the multinational industrialist with him. Because of the challenge to world dominance that the USSR presented to the West when it was powerful, the white mason supremacist cannot trust his Jewish counterpart. Neither can they extricate themselves from their financial grip. A war may be inevitable as partnership on a global scale will not be risked again by the Christian masons of the West.
The 33rd degree Masonic gods of the B'nai B'Brith and the Shriners are interlocked in a deadly struggle. One cannot let the other free. The Muslim can only pray that they wound each other severely enough so that they will be unable to further interfere with the establishment of an Islamic state; Allah's (SWT) caliphate on Earth. Islam is the only monotheistic religion which is not infested with the Gnostic blasphemies and racist philosophies expressed in the Talmud and Pauline theology. It is the only religion that has an historical record of humane treatment for the adherents of the other two monotheistic religions. They will find no inquisition or pogrom to blood bespatter the pages of Islamic history. Most importantly, the Islamic State will be an example of the success of Allah's (Glory to Him in the Highest) laws being applied top his creation. All man made, Satan inspired theologies and political systems have failed. It is time to re-establish the only system that can restore the order of the world to the way Allah(SWT) intended, the way of the Shariah is an Islamic Caliphate.
Babylon was the dominant world power when Jerremiah prophesied. Some of his prophecies were pronounced and carried out upon the Babylon of his day. Others were directed at a future Babylon. We should not, for instance, be looking for the literal city of Babylon in modern Iraq to be rebuilt to fulfill Jeremiah's end-time prophecy. Jeremiah 51:13 describes the location of the end-time Babylon: "O you who dwell by many waters, Abundant in treasures, you end is come, The measure of your end."
Taken literally this cannot mean modern Iraq, since Iraq is not surrounded by "many waters", nor "Abundant in treasures." Great Britain, however is, "Abundant in treasures." She is also completely surrounded "by many waters"--the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the North Sea to the north and east, and the English Channel to the south.
In verse 42, Jeremiah says, "The sea has come up over Babylon; She has been engulfed with its tumultuous waves. " Taken figuratively, "sea" means peoples, as in Rev. 17-15: "The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues." London boasts of having eve3ry nationality within its city limits.
An interesting Scripture concerning the Mother of Harlots is found in Revelation 18:7. it reads, "How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow." Could this Scripture signify the seat of Mystery Babylon, as well as allude to an actual queen sitting on the modern Babylonia throne? Consider Queen Elizabeth II of England. As head of state she is Patroness of English Freemasonry and head of the Church of England. Her consort, Prince Philip, the third duke of Edinburgh, is a Mason. The grand master of the British Brotherhood is the Duke of Kent, the Queen's cousin.
In January 1983, the Queen and her consort toured the United States. There seemed to be no apparent reason for her visit, other than the honor bestowed on her by the Bohemian Club of California during the last evening of her stay. It was quite an extravaganza.
The Bohemian Club is a West Coast center for the inner elite of Templar Scottish Rite Freemasonry in the United States. Some of its members are Senator Alan Cranston, FBI Director William Webster, former secretaries of state George Shultz and Henry Kissinger.
On February 3,1983, a five minute segment of the Bohemian Club's extravaganza in honor of Queen Elizabeth was aired on all three television networks. The even began with a view of the Queen sitting slightly high in the middle of the auditorium, as if on a top a pyramid. Two dancers entered the stage wearing huge hats hanging from cables. The cone of the first hat was representative of a walled city with a pyramid, or ziggurat towering in the middle. Obviously it portrayed ancient Babylon. At the base of the pyramid two doors continuously flapped open and shut displaying inside a large picture of Prince Charles, successor to the British throne, and his wife, Princess Diana. As the dancer and hat moved stage right, the second dancer entered from stage left. The cone on the second hat portrayed the city of London, with Big Ben towering in the center. When both dancers centered themselves, with the brims of the huge hats reaching from one end of the stage to the other, a voice bellowed, "Oh Queen, you have traversed the ages from Babylon to London!" Ever so slightly, and without a smile, Queen Elizabeth nodded as if in agreement to the statement.
That night the Bohemian Club, an arm of Templar Scottish Rite Freemasonry, acknowledge London as the seat of Mystery Babylon. Queen Elizabeth accepted that acknowledgement. If London is the city that the Apostle John saw in his vision, Queen Elizabeth's life and nation will be short-lived if Jesus Christ does not tarry--for who knows better the headquarters of its rival than the ruthless French Knights Templar Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
There will come a time when God will no longer tolerate the sins of Mystery Babylon and will destroy her. Before that happens, however, God in His mercy warns His people to sever t heir relationship with the Whore of Babylon. In Revelation 18:4-5, God pleads: "Come out of her, my people, that Ye be not partakers of her sins, and that Ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." Revelation 17:12-18, and all of Revelation 18 record the end-time destruction of Mystery Babylon. The holocaust there described is so rapid and complete that it seems reasonable to speculate that such destruction could only be accomplished by modern nuclear weaponry.
Revelation 18:10-11 describes the financial depression that this destruction will bring upon the whole earth: "Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more."
The headquarters of Mystery Babylon cannot be Rome. It should be obvious that if Rome were obliterated by a nuclear bomb today, the world economic system would not suffer. Conversely, if London, the financial capital of the world, were likewise destroyed, the world economic system would suddenly collapse as indicated in the scripture above.
English Freemasonry is the Mother of Harlots. London is modern Babylon. "Ground Zero" is at 10 Duke Street, St. James's London , EnglandSW1-the 33rd degree Supreme Council Headquarters of English Freemasonry.
With her control of world politics and world finance, English Freemasonry resembles ancient Mystery Babylon. Moreover, her ceremonial rites and symbols contain many pagan elements reminiscent of Babylonian mystery religions and slowly is approaching the End of Time, the Very End of their Existence. The Freemasons and their lackeys are doomed in face of God's Wrath. Therefore, repent you Bastards of Satan while still is high time to do so!

"The U.S. today has set a double standard, calling whoever goes against its injustice a terrorist. It wants to occupy our countries, steal our resources, impose on us agents to rule us....and wants us to agree to all these. If we refuse to do so, it will say, 'You are terrorists.' With a simple look at the U.S. behaviors, we find that it judges the behavior of the poor Palestinian children whose country was occupied: if they throw stones against the Israeli occupation, it says they are terrorists, whereas when the Israeli pilots bombed the United Nations building in Qana, Lebanon, while it was full of children and women, the U.S. stopped any plan to condemn Israel." (This was a reference to April 18,1996, when Israeli forces seeking to attack Hezbollah guerrillas shelled a U.N. building in Qana, Lebanon , killing 102 Lebanese civilians. Israel characterized the attack on the U.N. building as an accident, a claim the U.N. later dismissed)

"Since Allah spread out the Arabian Peninsula, created its desert, and drew its seas, no such disaster has ever struck as when those Christian legions spread like pest, crowded its land, ate its resources, eradicated its nature and humiliated its leaders....No one argues today over three facts repeated by witnesses and agreed upon by those who are fair....They are: Since about seven years ago, America has been occupying the most sacred lands of Islam: the Arabian Peninsula. It has been stealing its resources, dictating to its leaders, humiliating its people, and frightening its neighbors. It is using its rule in the Peninsula as a weapon to fight the neighboring peoples of Islam....The most evident proof is when the Americans went too far in their aggression against the people of Iraq....Despite major destruction to the Iraqi people at the hand of the Christian alliance and the great number of victims exceeding one million, Americans are trying once again to repeat these horrifying massacres as if they are not satisfied with the long blockade or the destruction. Here they come today to eradicate the rest of these people and to humiliate its Muslim neighbors. Although the Americans' objectives of these wars are religious and economic, they are also to serve the Jewish state and distract from its occupation of the Holy Land and its killing of Muslims therein. The most evident proof thereof is their persistence to destroy Iraq, the most powerful neighboring Arab state...All those crimes and calamities are an explicit declaration by the Americans of war on Allah, His Prophet, and Muslims....Based upon this and in order to obey the Almighty, we hereby give all Muslims the following judgment. The judgment to kill and fight Americans and their allies, whether civilians or military, is an obligation for every Muslim who is able to do so in any country....In the name of Allah, we call upon every Muslim, who believes in Allah and asks for forgiveness, to abide by Allah's order by killing Americans and stealing their money anywhere, anytime, and whenever possible. We also call upon Muslim scholars, their faithful leaders, young believers, and soldiers to launch a raid on the American soldiers of Satan and their allies of the Devil."
