The recent ‘raid’ on the Yearning For Zion religious community by Texas authorities was anything but an accident that just happened to ‘pop up’ out of nowhere. Likewise, the 24-7 attention paid to it by the mainstream media in the US had nothing to do with concern for the well-being of children, nor was it all the result of a slow news cycle. Rather, like most things taking place these days, it was carefully planned and executed in order to achieve maximum psychological effect on the collective American psyche. Astute Americans recognizing that there is a definite, quantifiable and qualifiable agenda at work today in corralling them (as well as their political and financial resources) by interested parties will easily see the hand of powerful forces at work here. The reasons for doing so by these forces are simple to see as well–to convey to would-be enemies of totalitarianism the subtle yet powerful message that ‘resistance is futile’ and if ‘Big Brutha wantsa getcha’ he will, and can do so with the speed and destructive power of a bolt of lightening.
The news coverage of the raid–almost in every single instance–did not hesitate in noting the many similarities between it and what took place over a decade ago in Waco, Texas when militarized federal law enforcement assets assaulted the Branch Davidian compound resulting in almost 100 men, women and children being gassed and burned to death. Besides the fact both events took place in Texas, they also involved separatist-minded religious communities living apart from a ‘corrupt’ world they saw as threatening to their way of life. Both groups were apocalyptic in their theology, pointing to the decline in public morals, the loss of constitutional freedoms and the heavy hand of God that they anticipated coming down soon upon mankind in a big way. In both cases, allegations of child molestation (as well as other out-of-the-mainstream ideas concerning marital relations) were concocted or blown out of proportion and itemized as THE defining characteristics of both groups as if nothing else took place in their communities. And, last but not least, this recent raid took place almost immediately prior to April 19th.
For those who have misplaced the significance of this date, it is one forever associated with clashes between anti-government radicals and the ‘rule of law’. Although hardly mentioned in this context, it is the day American militiamen clashed with British troops at Lexington and Concord, sparking the ‘shot heard ’round the world’ and the American Revolution. Over 200 years later, it was the date federal officials assaulted the Weaver family at Ruby Ridge Idaho, resulting in 14-year old Sammy Weaver being shot in the back and his mother Vicki having her head blown off by an FBI sniper. A few years later, the aforementioned Waco massacre took place, a mere pre-cursor to the same ‘shock and awe’ meted out against Israel’s greatest-perceived enemy in the Middle East, Iraq, and televised before the entire world. A few years later it was the day the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was blown to bits by one Timothy McVeigh, said to be working with ‘anti-government’ citizen paramilitary groups in the US.
Besides these striking similarities, there is something as well connecting all of these events with the recent raid in Texas, and–surprise, surprise–it just so happens to deal with powerful Zionist groups working for Israel’s interests in the United States.
In the case involving the ‘Yearning For Zion’ group in Texas (an offshoot of the large and very powerful Mormon church) Morris ‘Dees’ Seligman and his Southern Poverty Law Center recently named both the church and the church’s former leader Warren Jeffs to the SPLC’s list of ‘extremist’ elements operating in the US. The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith (whose activities include spying on Americans and working closely with law enforcement agencies at the federal, state and local levels in ‘advising’ them on who to target in the US) has publicly denounced the Mormon Church in recent years for its practice of ‘spiritually’ baptizing Jews into the church after their deaths. As an interesting side note, the now-infamous 2006 arsons of 9 Baptist churches in Alabama were preceded by the ADL’s public excoriation of the Southern Baptist Convention for its decision to specifically target Jews for proselytizing and conversion to Christianity.
It should be remembered as well that both of these groups–SPLC and the ADL–were deeply involved with ‘investigating’ the aforementioned groups and individuals prior to the events culminating on April 19th of their respective years. Randy Weaver was being ‘watched’ by SPLC for his involvement with the Aryan Nations. Dittoes with the ADL and the Branch Davidians, a fact mentioned in passing by a high-ranking ADL operative a mere few days before the assault began. (In yet another interesting side note, during the run-up to the Waco slaughter various Jewish outlets worldwide made clear their collective outrage over the fact that Branch Davidian leader David Koresh called himself the Messiah and dared to fly a flag at the Davidian compound closely resembling the flag of Israel.) A few months prior to the destruction of the Murrah Federal Building, the SPLC issued in typical screeching tones one of its infamous ‘Intelligence Reports’ warning about anti-government militias operating in the US, and, almost as if by magic, the Mossad-connected group led by Morris Dees Seligman had its dire predictions come to fruition with the detonation of a fertilizer bomb in the back of a rented Rider truck.
Although as of this moment the ‘Yearning for Zion’ church has not said anything publicly with regards to Israel and American foreign policy therewith, what makes it a target for the recent heavy-handed action is that it’s not considered ‘mainstream,’ meaning it marches to the beat of different drum. Like a growing number of Christian communities these days, the YFZ church recognizes (and operates under the conclusion) that the ruling elite are the enemy. Rather than putting their children in public schools where they are robbed of their ability to think critically and where they are taught to base their moral judgments on what the system tells them, the parents of the YFZ church homeschool their children where their minds and consciences are kept safe from the debilitating intellectual narcotic dispensed in America’s public schools.
Other events indicate the timing of this event was carefully planned for maximum effect as well. All the talk of pedophilia and dirty old men in the minute-by-minute news reports just so happened to precede the arrival of Pope Benedict XVI to America. With all the trouble the Catholic church has dealt with recently regarding priest sex abuse scandals, the pope (who, based upon his opposition to George Bush’s war-mongering in the Middle East) could have been expected to give critical words to the US President was cut off at the knees before he even arrived. As a result, George Bush was spared an embarrassing lecture by a man whose opinion matters to over a billion Catholics worldwide.
Besides any embarrassing comments from the Pope being kept out of the mainstream, the saturated coverage the Texas raid received resulted in other news being kept off the front pages as well, and once again, it deals with Israel and powerful Jewish interests. In the weeks running up to the raid, a spate of shocking news stories appeared in Israel and elsewhere dealing with the same topics of pedophilia and dirty old men, the only difference being that in this case it was not Catholic priests or Mormon preachers involved but rather rabbis teaching in Yeshivas.
A few weeks before the Texas raid, a story appearing in The Age (one of Australia’s biggest newspapers) detailed a huge scandal that erupted at the Adass Israel Girls’ School involving one Malka Leifer, wife of an orthodox rabbi and a teacher at that school who fled to Israel with the school’s assistance after allegations of sexual abuse were raised. Parents of girls ranging in age from 15 and 16 reported their daughters being molested by the said female teacher. In one case one of the molested girls was so depressed she attempted suicide while another suffered from eating disorders and anxiety attacks. Interestingly, the girls at this school (as with the girls at the Texas church) have their marriages arranged by their religious leaders while they are very young and usually to much older men. Before fleeing, the fugitive teacher stole $20,000, money earned from part-time jobs done by the students and kept in a kitty. The school so far is not talking to anyone, including to the parents of the abused girls and has instructed the members of its community not to talk about the issue at all, citing the religious principle of lashon hara or malicious gossip.
Another story breaking a few weeks before the Texas raid and kept out of sight and thus out of mind involved a Brooklyn yeshiva (orthodox religious school) and its head administrator being sued for $10 million over allegations of sexual abuse by a rabbi who taught there for several decades. This present lawsuit is not the first, but rather the fifth to be filed against Yeshiva Torah Temimah and its administrator Lipa Margulies alleging sexual abuse by Rabbi Yudi Kolko. The molestations are said to date as far back as the 1980s and were covered up by the school’s administrator who threatened victims into silence with clear and not-so-clear threats of retaliation.
Another story appearing in Haaretz, one of the biggest news outlets in the Jewish state details the frightening tale of Rabbi Elior Chen and his recent flight to Canada when it was learned he and his sect were being investigated for child abuse. Chen is said to have ordered his followers to discipline their children by beating, burning, breaking their bones with hammers, scalding them with boiling water and forcing them to eat feces. An investigation was opened when one of the children in his ‘community’ was beaten so badly he went into a coma. The paper claims Rabbi Chen chose Canada as a refuge because “Only in very exceptional cases does Canada extradite.” A short time later, another story here in the US revealed Rabbi Edward Schlaeger of Bridgeport, Ct was convicted of possessing child pornography but had his five-year prison sentence suspended, yet another embarrassing scandal for Jewish issues kept out of the mainstream as a result of the blinding, deafening news coverage concerning the events in Texas.
It is also worth mentioning that a search of the SPLC and ADL websites regarding the aforementioned cases involving Jewish sexual abuse of minors and the cult-like behavior of certain Jewish religious communities turned up nothing, compared with page after page after page of detailed information concerning ‘extremist’ Christian and Muslim groups.
In sum, what all of this seems to indicate is that when it comes to Christian groups in America, subversive organizations such as the ADL and SPLC are always there, watching, listening, and slithering about as silently as the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Their motto can be summed up simply thus–‘We’re making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out who’s naughty or nice’ with regards to what is considered ‘acceptable’ dogma in Christian churches operating in America and more importantly, the ‘proper’ view of Israel. Therefore, someone coming along with any kind of novel ideas that may in the near (or not-so-near) future threaten to undermine the backwards, demonic tenets of Christian Zionism, they must be crushed and made examples of lest someone else get any funny ideas.
The reason for spying on Christian groups in the US by groups such as SPLC and ADL needs no real elaboration. Christian supporters of Israel and her murderous policies in the Middle East number in the tens of millions, along with a good portion of what’s found in their wallets. Led by false prophets and Judas goats such as John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye and the late (and not-so-great) Jerry Falwell, the umbilical cord from America to Israel providing the financial and political lifeblood necessary if the great experiment in Jewish self rule is to remain viable would wither on the vine if Christian support began to wane or disappear. Therefore, Christianity in America, in order to be considered ‘acceptable’ by Israel and her unregistered foreign agents must conform to certain dogmatic positions, a few of them being
(a) the Jews are God’s chosen people
(b) that the land of Palestine was given to them by divine mandate
(c) that the Arabs in the region resisting Israel’s murderous activities are thwarting the will of God, and
(d) that is it the duty of Christians in America to support Israel.
Any fringe groups therefore veering off the paved highway leading to Armageddon, groups that read their bibles instead of having them read to them by the likes of Hagee & Co are considered a threat to maintaining the great Zionist delusion that has rendered so many in America today blind and mad.
The message conveyed in this recent event in Texas was clear–religious groups seeking to divorce themselves from the system will have hell to pay for doing so. As the Book of the Apocalypse predicted, ‘He forced all, both free and slave, rich and poor to receive a mark on the right hand or forehead’ and without which persons or entities could not function.
Can there be little doubt then that this recent event, as well as those sure to happen in the future are but manifestations of this same system?

Note from me, MG–it came to my attention after the publication of this piece that the Weaver assault did not take place April 19th, but rather August of that year. My apologies to the readers for not double-checking facts.
