Mike Huckabee is Unfit to be President, But He’s Perfect for the Knesset

25 Aug

Zwinglius Redivivus

Because he is more interested in doing the business of Bibi Netanyahu than he is in doing the business of America.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is heading to Israel.  Huckabee, less than a month after he said the Iranian nuclear deal will “take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven,” will visit Israel for a series of meetings and discussions, some involving the deal.  “We’re going to be doing some fundraising but more importantly, I’ll also be visiting with a number of officials and discussing the Iranian deal,” the Republican presidential candidate said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think it is the most dangerous situation that we face, not just for the Middle East but for the rest of the world for a long time. This is essentially arming and equipping a terrorist state.”

And to Huckabee we say, no, you will not be…

    The U.S. President is a muslim, with strong Shiite sympathies. His principal Executive Advisor is an Iranian woman, with the deceptive name of Valerie Jarrett. (Born Shiraz, Iran, 1956)

    Hilary Clinton, likewise, maintains a Muslim as her closest advisor and confidante, one Huma Abedin, from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

    On many occasions President Barack Hussein has expressed approval of Islam, identifying strongly with it, while practically sneering at Christ, and proclaiming that ‘christians’ as one of America’s major problems, resisting implementation of his New Transformed America.

    So I’d say the interests of Islam are well-represented not only in the Middle East, but in the United States, the UN, and pretty much everywhere else in international bureaucracy.

    Thus if one of the (rather endless) raft of Republican candidates wants to visit the state of Israel, I don’t think that the District of Isis (I mean Columbia!) need get too hysterical that someone, somewhere, might not condemn the Israeli State.

    Rest easy Zwenglius! Any interest that Huckabee has in Israel will be carefully vetted by Valerie, and Huma, and that kinda beige golfer-guy in our Iranian White House, I mean the Rainbow House. The guy with the two Arabic first names, and the African surname.

    But our problems, clearly, are the Evil Joos!

    At this point the devotion to Israel is farcical. Never before in history have I seen a nation care so deeply about the status of another, while disregarding its own spiral into self-annihilation.

    What’s funny is all the Christians that see devotion to Israel as a biblical mandate. In other words, if you are a Christian, then the Bible commands devotion to Israel. As Mark says, it really is farcical.

    “At this point the devotion to Israel is farcical”

    Valerie, Huma, Michelle, Barack — all Mooslims — already rule the ‘nation you care so deeply about’. What more do you want? The Iranian Flag flying over every U.S. state? The Rooskies and Iranians in Nebraska, chanting prayers to Allah? The Le Pens ruling Europe?

    Seeing that the word ‘israel’ is so beloved of my God, and so embraced by Scripture, and seeing how pretty much everybody is on the Evil Joo bandwagon, I guess I’ll go ahead and defend Israel. For fun. Outta spite. Farcical that.

    Even if it weren’t fun and Scripture didn’t apply, I’d do it just to piss you Hamanites off.

    I’m not on any ‘Evil Joos!’ bandwagon, but I do think the interests of the Tribe and those of western Christians are not identical. And accordingly, I’d prefer a politician who put devotion and loyalty to his own country above any such sentiments towards another country, period.

    The Jews today are no more special than the Yemenis. They are not the ‘chosen’ people any longer. The chosen are saved through Christ. Judaism is an incomplete religion.

    The Tribe are no more monolithic than prot denominations. Nor do I find Jewish interests often consistent within their own groups or nations, despite certain guild and cultural insularities.

    They are scattered among the nations, and even in political Israel there are divisive factions, such as Secular Hebrews, goofy obsessed Talmudists, etc. ‘Secular Hebrew’ is like saying ‘Buddhist Christian’, so where’s the ‘tribe’s interest’ in that? What ‘one thing’ would it be? The state of Israel suffers from many idolatries, including worshipping post-Enlightenment modernism, to Marxist/feminist leftism, to political infatuations, to glorification of money.

    Understanding who and what Israel is across Scriptural contexts requires study, understanding, and God’s lent grace. The word means different things at different times. Elements of both the Gentiles and the Host are sometimes included in biblically as ‘Israel’. Are Mark Citadel and Prince LeCoix against them too?

    Just the prince of persia and his bitches in the Executive, along with the usual suspects accusing, isn’t enough. Can’t wait long but I’ll give them a little more time to scrounge up some real opposition. So that later it looks like it was a fair fight. :O)

    Cheers.

    The Reformed view is that Israel today is the Church; that we who are Christians, regardless of our background, are the Chosen of God; however, there are those who also believe that there may be a future role for more of those who are of national Israel, that perhaps many of them will convert at the 11th hour, and join the Church.

    See post and comments:

    https://patriactionary.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/the-church-israel/

    I’ll quote myself:

    https://patriactionary.wordpress.com/2015/05/11/canadas-neo-con-regime-equates-calls-to-boycott-israel-with-anti-semitism-threatens-to-use-hate-crime-legislation-against-organizations-encouraging-boycotts/#comment-24700

    We, Christians, are Beta Israel, God’s New Chosen People, from A.D. 33 onwards.

    Because the Old Covenant was expanded – and contracted – in the New Covenant that replaced it – henceforth Gentiles as well as Jews could be amongst God’s Chosen People – but only those who believe in Christ, the Messiah, God’s Son, sent to redeem His people – whatever their background, but not because of their background.

    I guess in order to be accepted and ‘get traction’ I should have been a Professor of Theology with a nice comfy gig, Hey everybody lookit me I’m Just So Darn Religious! while expressing hate at the name of Israel, and loving the name of Mary the Redemptrix. And calling myself a Servant of Christ. Christ who is King of Jerusalem, even dirt and brick Jerusalem, and who does NOT hate the name of Israel.

    “Doctor” my ass. What a nation of pretentious fakes before the Lord.

    Good luck o you professors of theology, full of the fullness of your words and opinions and positions, and empty of the Spirit of God.

    I have no business participating in a website that promotes such persons, their hatreds, and their heresies. An inclusionist I am not. I see what ‘pan-Christianity’ leads to and I will have nothing to do with it, nor be associated even indirectly with the people it recommends.

    Ray:
    I’ve kind of avoided getting into Protestant/Catholic digressions, but I think that you’re conflating some of the New Age Gnostic/Pseudo-Catholic movements with traditional Catholicism. I have NEVER read ANY orthodox or accepted Church writing which considers Mary a co-redeemer with Christ and certainly never as a goddess.

    Mary is about on the same level as John the Baptist. Just as sin entered the world through Eve, redemption entered through Mary. Christ could have simply manifested as a fully complete being, but chose instead to use Mary and come ito the world in the natural way.

    Will, As far as I know, Orthodox preterism sees it the same way. By crucifying the messiah, the ancient Jews rejected their status as God’s chosen people. National adultery and all that. So God now grafted the Church into this status as God’s chosen people. Many orthodox preterists as well as others see the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A.D. as confirmation of this. All that was part of the old system was done away with to make way for the new covenant ushered in by Jesus’ death and resurrection.

    Eric — “I have NEVER read ANY orthodox or accepted Church writing which considers Mary a co-redeemer with Christ and certainly never as a goddess.”

    Your ignorance and lack of due diligence is not my responsibility. So I’m just ‘conflating it’? I made it all up just to be mean?

    “Mary’s role as Co-redemptrix did not cease with the glorification of her Son.” [John Paul II, L’Osservatore Romano, English edition, November 12, 1984, p. 1.]

    Page ONE. Guess I ‘conflated’ that too.

    Eric — “Mary is about on the same level as John the Baptist.”

    Says who? YOU? Or the Theological Professor, Doctor Jim West, who hates the name of Israel and who doesn’t need Scripture or Christ? So now your Holy Redemptrix (oh wait, I merely conflated that!) is equal to John the Baptist? LOL!

    You’ve all got your Opinions, don’t you? All seven billion of you with your Opinions! And you all feel authorized to ‘teach’ me about what is right in this world! Just astonishing.

    “Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist.”

    Jesus HIMSELF said that, recorded in Matthew 11. NO ONE ‘born of woman’ i.e., meaning a human being. P.S. his mother was quite alive when he made that very direct statement. In fact, he prefaced it with the word ‘truly’ just so that when folks came along later and instead of wanting the Truth instead inserted their Opinions, they’d have his Word to confront them.

    But who needs King Jeshua, or the Scripture? You all have got your Theology Professors and your Bible School Pastors and your religious buddies and hell, your own wonderful Selves, to tell you whatever you want to hear, uh, I mean, the truth.

    Y’all enjoy your Redemptrix and your fake pope, who like your friend Jim West hate Israel. Iranians rule over the Executive Branch of the nation, but your concern is that ONE U.S. politician is going to visit the State of Israel, and based on this blog we are to believe that such a visit is the dire threat to the American nation. Because that’s what the Joo Haters need to believe to get to sleep at night. Joo Haters who call themselves CHRISTIANS.

    I am out of here. You can ignore Scripture, insert your own Opinions, hate Israel, and practice devotion to a dead woman without me.

    Ray:
    Calm down…it does us no good to split into a thousand fragments while the enemies of Christ and Civilization hold a unified front.

    ‘L’Osservatore Romano’ also carried this from Dr. Jean Galot, the Vatican head of Theology under John Paul II: “The title Co-Redemptrix is criticized because it would suggest an equality between Mary and Christ. The criticism has no foundation…Co-redemption implies a subordination to the redemptive work of Christ, because it is only a co-operation and not an independent or parallel work. Hence any equality with Christ is excluded…The word ‘co-redemption’, which means ‘cooperation in redemption’, can be applied to every Christian and to the whole Church. As St. Paul writes, ‘we are all God’s co-workers’ (I Cor. iii:9).”

    ray, you must do as you see fit. I’m sorry you can’t see the difference between not automatically supporting a particular country and hating an even larger group of people, of which the citizens of said country are only a part, and not necessarily entirely representative of the whole.

    If you look back, you’ll never see any hatred of Jews, as Jews, expressed here. In fact, you’ll see a lot of admiration for how Orthodox Jews conduct themselves within their own communities.

    As regards foreign policy, however, many of us do not think that national Israel deserves any special help or aid, and we don’t feel the need to automatically take Israel’s side in various conflicts; this doesn’t make us automatically in favour of Palestine or Muslim nations, either. Who interests me most in the Middle East, are my fellow Christians, whether Palestinian and Lebanese Christians, Assyrian Syrians, Messianic Israeli Jews, Egyptian Copts, etc. In all the countries there. But I see no reason to take sides in any of the conflicts between various nations. And I don’t really care about either Iran or IS or any other country there.

    This blog is pan-Christian, because it was started by, and continues to consist of, bloggers and commenters of various Christian traditions. No doubt we have many differences, but one thing we generally have in common is a willingness to not be bound by what is popular, whether it is in our understanding of women and feminism; or whether we question the value of certain long-held foreign policy leanings, or whatever else. I don’t think our being pan-Christian in and of itself leads to skepticism about the prominence of Israel in American foreign policy planning, as there are other blogs out there that are not as pan-Christian which also have similar leanings, and willingness to question the status quo. (For that matter, Dr. West’s blog is one such; he is ardently Reformed, and no fan of Rome. He is no more a special venerator of Mary than I am.).

    I’m not sure what you have against someone having a doctorate in theology; while that doesn’t make me automatically give credence to everything someone who has such says, I’ll certainly generally take the opinions of those who are truly learned, and educated, over those of such who are decidedly anti-intellectual. That is a prejudice to which I fully admit, of which I am not in the least bit ashamed.

    Notwithstanding some occasional conflicts, I’ve been glad to have had you around this blog and my other ones, and I’m sorry to see you go, based on what I contend is a misunderstanding.

    But as I said, you must do as you see fit.

    Go in peace, brother. I wish you well.

    Will:
    One of the things ignored by the Western media is the fact that the Beltway gangsters have been tacitly encouraging the ethnic cleansing of Christians in both Iraq and Syria. In fact, Bashir Assad has been the only regional leader doing anything to save Syrian Christian lives. The prog Obama has been trying to drag both secular Jews (Israel) and secular Moslems (Turkey) into the conflict, since Assad has foiled all of Obama’s attempts at a hostile takeover of the country.

    Mike Huckabee decided to visit the State of Israel, so that makes him both unfit to be President, and a de-facto member of the Knesset. Yeah hardy har har. But, we really didn’t mean to slag Israel, just go along with our sideswipe slur and we’ll all be happy unified Pan-Christians, attacking Israel together. Pan Christians, on the stove and burning.

    It is your headline and your Theology Professor. You want each other, you got each other.

    There is no misunderstanding and I will assuredly go. You have no peace to offer me, nor the power to deliver it. I don’t accept peace from anyone attacking my people, nor do I give it.

    Ray,

    Wouldn’t a president who puts the interest of a foreign country ahead of his own be considered unfit to lead his own country no matter who it is? Prioritize high enough and it might become downright treasonous. Not saying Mike Huckabee is treasonous, but if he puts the interests of Israel ahead of the interests of the U.S., how does that not make him unfit to lead the U.S.

    Personally, I believe that if someone desires to aid Israel or any foreign country for that matter, let him do it personally. In fa The job of any government is to look out for the interests of those it governs, not the interests of foreign citizens.

    I’m afraid, feeriker, that since this is a repost, I cannot take credit, but must give it to Dr. Jim West, from whose blog I reblogged this. I agree, completely. For the life of me, I do not get why Christians think national Israel is of any importance any more; we who believe in Christ ARE Israel; ‘Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness’; nothing to do with Abraham’s ethnicity or the religion in which he was raised.

    What makes it worse is the fact that the State of Israel –and all but about 15 percent of the Israeli population– is completely and avowedly secular, as in “completely non-religious.” In fact, many profess to be atheists. This is something that the brain-dead evangelitards CANNOT process through their empty, acerebral skulls (not that they have the vaguest clue about anything else either).

    Indeed. They’re expecting that God would bless a nation who not only don’t accept the New Covenant, but have even turned their backs on the Old Covenant, in terms of faithfulness, which is absurd.

    At least the Orthodox in Israel have nothing to do with the State of Israel, as much as they can help it; even they don’t believe in it!
