Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.-Sun-tzu Chinese general & military strategist (~400 BC)

It isn’t that anti-Semitism is on the rise, but that it is only recently being reported on the internet with any accuracy. There has been a media black-out in America for thirty years or more about much considered anti-Jewish, and it is stymied by both taboo and political correctness.
But this has nothing to do with the Jewish religion.
If you think that religion has not been used throughout history to dominate and control the populous, you have not studied history enough to understand it. If you think that religion is not manipulated for money and power worldwide, even here in America, you are very foolish indeed. If you think that what you hold as value and worth is not flawed, you are more than likely mistaken, or you would not be so needy, so unhappy, so weak natured, so afraid, so out of control.
Those who travel outside of the US realize that world news are displayed differently, but you soon comprehend, without a doubt, that what and how they report is biased with an agenda. Free Press does not exist, and if you think you are getting unvarnished truth here in America, look again.
One might assume that the only place to find truth is in our own hearts, but one will have to get rid of all of the other man-made shadows that fill it first. In Hindu this is called “Maya,” or, the illusion.
All around this globe Christians are persecuted. Priests and ministers of “The Word” are murdered, tortured, and some disappear without a trace. Jews are victimized worldwide too, violence, wronged, and maligned, and Muslims face bias, violence, and bigotry where ever they roam, even from others so similar, philosophically parallel, that to both a Jew or Christian they might seem indistinguishable.
Every major religion has a variety of offshoots, and each think that theirs is the most righteous, the most just, the most favored by God. Old texts have been reinterpreted for thousands of years, re-written, re-stated, for the values that change with the times. They are used as a means, by governments and institutions, to control and dominate the masses. Reasons vary. For most, Church-State dynasties break from tradition, like the Church of England from Rome, where those who oppose are burned or beheaded, and Joan of Arc is a case in point.
When one excludes one religion, one race, one ideal, dominating one over another, problems will ensue. It is a great tool too, for those who know the science of persuasion.
Our unity, our harmony as a nation was founded on the principle that we are one nation under God, with freedom to believe and interpret as we will, so long as you do not infringe on another’s right to do the same.
One can say this is a Christian homeland, but never a Christian State, and if we want to change that, we will be altering ourselves from one of the primary fundamental ideas that made us great. You see, if a Chinaman wants to consider this his Buddhist homeland he can coexist with any other religion who feels the same. If this is promoted as our ideals, we can find peace, and be the beacon of light for everyone.
This is the problem in the middle east. One institutionalized religion dominating another, and unfortunately, our government now promotes this too in the form of Zion.
As it is said by some Christians that the end times are near, and so perhaps it is time we faced the truth. We must look at ourselves in the mirror. Understand ourselves first, before we can ever attempt to do the same looking into the world.
Our needs as human beings are tenuous at best. We not only have physical needs, security for family, food on the table, but require the liberty to make that happen. We have a primary component that separates us from animals, an intellect that realizes its own death. With that, we have the very real need to reason why, some out of fear, and others out of curiosity, and religion fills that void. What can be stronger then faith, but perhaps the union of a mother and child?
Faith can be the biggest motivator, more powerful than anything, and this is very well know by an institution who wants to dominate and control. It is the reason Church and State were born.
Perhaps, if you want peace and not war, one might want to find out what our enemy’s reasoning’s are. That is, if we want to find a common ground, something called coexistence, where peace is found.
Mahathir bin Mohamad (pronounced [ma?had?ir bin mo?hamat?], was the forth Prime Minister of Malaysia and was retired after 22 years in office in 2003. He was the longest serving leader in Asia, and is accredited with being very progressive, engineering what is termed modernisation.
He is also a devout Muslim.
Though our media hardly gave reference to Mohamad, his words were broadcast around the world for decades. He stated: “… today the Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them. They invented socialism, communism, human rights and democracy so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong so they may enjoy equal rights with others. With these they have now gained control of the most powerful countries…”
This is taken out of context, the full paragraph is below…
We must look at this for what it is. We have human rights here in this country, something we constantly strive to keep. Collectivism is alive and well in Malaysia, and Fascism too… Our Republic, of the people, is nothing like them. Our safety and control of government depends on verifiable facts and truth, for an ill- informed population is a blind population, and in retrospect this is our greatest failing. A Free Press is a free nation.
On December 31, 2009 Mohamed asserted that U.S. President Barack Obama “…is preparing for a (military) offensive on Iran with the help of his ally, the Israeli regime.” His words ring out from his own weblog and the Iranian Republic News Agency, and yet, we hear nothing of that here…
Our growing fear of a One World Order, (called Globalization), is nothing new. Mahathir has been an outspoken critic and inciting hatred for our Israel-American alliance for a generation. He astounded the world with this paragraph, and yet we are ignorant of it.
Today we grapple with the broader spectrum of American Sovereignty, loss of liberty and our Constitution, with the enemy both at the gates and in our own camp.
“We [Muslims] are actually very strong, 1.3 billion people cannot be simply wiped out. The Nazis killed 6 million Jews out of 12 million [during the Holocaust]. But today the Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them. They invented socialism, communism, human rights and democracy so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong so they may enjoy equal rights with others. With these they have now gained control of the most powerful countries. And they, this tiny community, have become a world power.”
The complexity of this is astounding, but we Americans, if we are going to determine our own fate, must question who controls us, from the Federal Reserve, international banks, Goldman Sachs, to Soros buying into media and controlling the Democratic Party. It is proposed that Soros and his ilk now dominate the ultra-liberal mind, and yet the international policies along with the profound control and growth of government, and the destruction of our constitution come from both sides of the isle, whether considered Neo-Conservatives of Blue Dogs.
At this time in history it may seem these parties are wide apart, but in reality they are virtually indistinguishable, both bought and paid for by lobbyists and concerns not always for the good of America, or in control.
We the people have lost management of our nation, and in order to get it back we must take a good hard look at who we are. Unless we can do that , we will be nothing more but sheep to be sheared…\
If a magic wand could be incorporated, surely the best avenue would be to vote all of them out of office, and selectively replaced them. Unfortunately, America only has a small fraction paying attention, and whether the reason is ineptness, laziness, or lack of truth to make a rational decision, it all amounts to the same thing. In the process, we can’t organize, and that is exactly what keeps us dominated, and a worthy leader coming from the ranks impossible, without a lot of money.
God help us.
Note from the Author: No religion should be held accountable for institutions who work in their name.
If we are to war, we must first find who is the enemy. It may be that he is actually in our own camp, unrecognized. It might be frightful to note that part of your problem might be the man staring back at you in the mirror… start with him.
All warfare is based on deception. There is no place where espionage is not used. Offer the enemy bait to lure him.
Appraise war in terms of the fundamental factors. The first of these factors is moral influence.
Nothing is more difficult than the art of maneuvering for advantageous positions.
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.
Sun-tzu, The Art of War. Emptiness and Fullness
The best victory is when the opponent surrenders of its own accord before there are any actual hostilities…It is best to win without fighting.
Sun-tzu, The Art of War. Planning a Siege
– More quotations on: [Victory]
A military operation involves deception. Even though you are competent, appear to be incompetent. Though effective, appear to be ineffective.
Sun-tzu, The Art of War. Strategic Assessments
Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.
