ALLIANCE WITH ISLAM MEANS DISASTER
By Rev. Ted Pike

In a previous article (See, Anti-Zionist
Conference Gives Ammo to ADL) I related how anti-Zionist leaders
participated in the International Islamic Conference on August
16 in Baltimore. This provoked a devastating three-page attack
by the Anti-Defamation League. ADL says it proved that anti-Zionists
and radical Islam are one in spirit.
Mark Glenn, a prime mover behind this effort toward “solidarity” with
Islam, wrote an impassioned rebuttal to my concerns. He intends
to continue in the same direction. Others of the group say the ADL
attack was a “badge of honor.” Clearly, I must continue
to speak out. (See
Knowledge of Truth is Perishable
Movements of political and religious awakening, though ushered
in with enthusiasm and even bravado, are extremely perishable. Under
the big guns of Jewish media onslaught, our present worldwide anti-Zionist
awakening could become a memory. Throughout my life I have seen media
destroy such nascent movements with little pretext. (See, Jews
Confirm Big Media Is Jewish)
Example: In the late 40s, Communism’s expansion was explosive.
China had fallen; a Jewish-dominated spy ring gave US atomic secrets
to the Soviets. Communists had infiltrated the United Nations, US
State Department, Hollywood, and the US labor movement.
My parents realized the threat of communism and liberalism to America. They left the conventional pastorate to awaken, through publishing
and radio, a slumbering church and nation. Yet they had to stand
by helplessly as the one man who attempted to expose such infiltration,
a man of courage and conscience capable of awakening America, Sen.
Joseph McCarthy, was crucified by Jewish media. The Christian/conservative
enlightenment for which they fasted and prayed was snuffed out almost
before it began.
Ten years later, in the very early 1960s, political conservative
Robert Welch renewed hope for an anti-communist awakening. His “John
Birch Society” hoped to succeed where McCarthy failed. Christian/conservatives
sprang up with grassroots support. Yet liberal media discovered that
Welch had written that Eisenhower was a “conscious agent of
the communist conspiracy.” Immediately, national media went
wild, claiming that “little old ladies in tennis shoes” were
peering behind every bush for lurking communists. A hopeful anti-communist
movement again foundered.
In 1963, a conservative superstar, Sen. Barry Goldwater, rose on
the scene. A charismatic, articulate half-Jewish conservative, he
revived patriots' dreams. He ran for President in 1964 but again,
our hopes were dashed. The media trumpeted Goldwater's unfortunate
remark that we should nuke North Vietnam 's military supplier, China. A horrified public again turned its back on conservatism. The liberal
stranglehold in America, established by FDR’s New Deal, remained
Yes, a Christian/conservative awakening finally occurred in 1980
under Pres. Ronald Reagan after nearly a half century of liberal
dominion. Yet even that great step forward proved fatally flawed.
Reaganites remained willfully blind to the Jewish origins of communism
and liberalism. They ignored what Billy Graham warned Pres. Richard
Nixon of in a 1972 taped conversation in the White House: Jews had
a "stranglehold" on America through their control of big
As a result, the Reagan revolution was hijacked by powerful neo-conservative
Jews. They played a definitive role involving America in foreign
wars to make the Mideast safe for Israel. Such entanglements
have almost fatally discredited the Republican, Christian conservative
awakening for which my parents prayed almost 60 years ago. Despite
the hopefulness provided by Sarah Palin, inheritors of the Reagan
legacy are mired in as much of a dearth of conceptual clarity and
vision as our troops are mired in senseless Mideast strife.
Our movement must not perish as did others before. I believe this
is our last opportunity to save Christian civilization. That is why
I am so concerned by the precedent set by five anti-Zionist leaders
last month. These leaders did not say anything that the ADL could
legitimately find “anti-Semitic” at the conference. Yet
by identifying our movement with Islam and a roster
of largely unknown Islamic speakers, these leaders placed themselves as sitting ducks
in the ADL shooting gallery.
Fortunately, this proto-attack was confined primarily to ADL’s
vast liberal readership. But as easily, ADL could flood thousands
of media outlets worldwide. ADL is playing its first “war games” against
the anti-Zionist right. If misguided leaders continue to provide
ADL with propaganda ammunition, we will soon comprehend what ADL “media
blitzkrieg” really means.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with dialogue with Muslims; we
benefit from increased understanding of each other and our common
threat: Jewish supremacism. I've talked with Muslims about such issues
for the past 24 years. Jesus freely talked with all, even His enemies.
But He did not pursue solidarity with doubtful persons or groups,
as Mark Glenn has told me he wants to do with Islam. Scripture says: "Many
believed in His name…but Jesus did not commit Himself unto
them…for He knew what was in man." (John 2:23-25) Creating
an alliance with Islam is qualitatively different than discussion.
It is a commitment of mutual cooperation and even loyalty.
Who Gains from “Solidarity” with
No wise military commander risks his troops in offensive action
unless there is real hope of gain. What is the advantage of allying
in a public way with Islam? I can only think of disadvantages - catastrophic
We don't really need a formal pact with Islam; 1.3 billion Moslems
already side with us against Jewish supremacism! Unlike in WW2, this
battle is not about physical reinforcements, such as we had to ask
from a dubious ally, Stalin. Today we are in a war of words and ideas.
Victory can best be achieved if anti-Zionism in the West cooperates
with Islam in the East by sharing the powerful ammunition of truth.
What better way to do it than through the internet?
Public alignment with Islam works against us by giving photo-op "proof" of
a lie that the pro-Zionist, anti-Islamic church and world already
want to believe. This lie is that our movement shares the anti-Semitic, “terrorist
values” of extremist Muslims.
What could more perfectly assist ADL clone Michael Chertoff and
his Dept. of Homeland Security than to categorize us as "terrorist
sympathizers" who support enemies of America and Israel in the
war on terror? If that is established, the next step is to
round us up (like Ernst Zundel in Canada) as “domestic terrorists.”
In my article criticizing the Baltimore conference, I point out
that most Muslims today "spiritualize" jihad, “holy
war,” to mean the war against evil in our souls. Yet the fact
remains that Islam was birthed in violence. The Qur’an taught
Muslim armies that Allah is merciful, and if infidels surrender and
convert they may live. But nothing is nobler than holy war to rid
the entire world of those who blaspheme Allah by resisting Islam. In
only the first century of Islam's existence, it violently subjugated
nations from Persia to the Arabian Peninsula and throughout North
Africa to Spain in some of history's bloodiest conquests.
Islam still contains a demonstrably violent, terrorist element,
especially in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan. In a number
of Moslem nations, persecution of Christians is well-documented grim
reality. Christian-persecuting Moslem nations include Sudan, where
a reported 2 million Christians have been murdered by the extremist
Moslem government. Somalia, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Indonesia, and Malaysia also repress Christians. Just this week,
many Coptic Christians in front of the White House protested the
severe ongoing persecution of their 15 million Coptic brethren in
Egypt. They claim Egypt 's Moslem government turns a blind eye to
almost daily murders of Coptic Christians. They allege large numbers
of Christian girls are kidnapped by Arab men and forced to become
Muslim members of their harems.
Let’s Face Islamic Reality
Glenn told me he thinks that when Muslims act against Americans
and Christians, this behavior is an aberration - an adverse
reaction to the West’s support of Israeli abuses. He says Islam
is not anti-Christian. He believes if we unite with the Muslim world
and oppose Zionist oppression, then Islamic violence will gradually
subside; Islam, he contends, shares Christian values of respect for
Jesus, protection of modesty and women, and veneration of the family.
He is optimistic that Islam could become a tremendous ally to Christianity.
In reality, although Christian disapproval of Zionist abuses helps
restore Christian credibility to the Moslem world, violent and anti-Christian
tendencies have always existed within it, proceeding from a literal
reading of the Qur’an. It’s too late to think Islam can
substantially be transformed in the very little time we have left.
What is certain is that Islam carries enormous baggage
of negative stereotypes - much created by Zionist propaganda, most
of its own making. Our movement to tell the whole truth about the
dangers of Jewish supremacy can only stay afloat through moderation,
careful documentation, and the grace of God. It would be quickly
pulled under by the enormous weight of Islam.
Yes, both Islam and American anti-Zionism oppose Jewish supremacy
and Israeli injustices. But the similarity largely ends there. Both
are best served by staying separate in their very disparate realms.
The internet provides us all with the only really powerful forum
to proclaim truth, a place of powerful advantage in an ideological
battle against Zionism. Political alliances often sour. But
the whole truth has proven, throughout history, to provide enlightenment,
safety, and liberty to those who fervently seek it.
It unfailingly confirms exactly what Jesus predicted, “The
truth shall set you free.”
Mark Glenn told me that all the verses from the Qur’an which
advocate killing infidels were actually intended for the self defense
of Mohammad and his followers.
Yet the Qur’an is almost as much a military manual as a
religious guide. Here are a few of many passages which help explain
the aggressiveness of Moslem armies against all who refused to convert:
Finally, this passage describes a Moslem army approaching one of
the many hundreds of ancient cities which have decided to fight,
rather than submit to forced conversion:
