MY RESPONSE TO ADL'S ATTACK
By Rev. Ted Pike
10 Oct 07
In 1988, I first publicly opposed efforts of the Anti-Defamation
League of B’nai B’rith to establish state and federal
hate laws in America . I knew these laws would end freedom of speech,
especially for Christians, in the United States as they have in other
western nations. For the past 18 years, I have worked to oppose these
laws and protect freedom of speech. ADL has given me the "silent
treatment." But since the federal hate law was passed by the
House and Senate, ADL has finally spoken out against me—publishing
ADL is getting tough against American critics of Israel and ADL’s
anti-Christian agenda. They anticipate exponential power as enforcers
of a federal hate crimes gestapo in our nation, just as they enjoy
in Canada . This attack on me helps prepare the public for
criminalization, not just of Holocaust reductionists (who’ve
been jailed under ADL’s German and Austrian hate laws) but
for imprisonment of American violators of hate crimes laws -- those
whom Sen. Kennedy recently described as “domestic terrorists.”
Once alleged “terrorists” like me are out of the way,
mainstream evangelical leaders and pastors will follow us to prison.
Hate crime laws’ ultimate goal is to silence all Christians.
The federal hate law says that anyone who “aids, abets, counsels” an
unstable person—whether by pulpit, talk radio, or publishing—and
motivates him to do violence to a member of a federally protected
group (such as a Jew or homosexual) shall be punished equally as
a federal “hate criminal” alongside the active offender
(Title 18, U.S.C. Sec. 2a). ADL's pending British hate bill
stipulates that anyone who helps create a climate of criticism of
homosexuality will receive seven years in prison. 1 Soon the
Bible itself and all effective preaching from it will be criminalized
as “hate speech” that incites violence!
What is Anti-Semitism?
ADL accuses me of anti-Semitism, but what is it? It’s the
racist belief that Jews are genetically inferior, evil, corruptive,
or conspiratorial. This is what Hitler believed. It is
not anti-Semitic to criticize the bad behavior of Jews, as did Jesus
and the Old Testament prophets. But for ADL, vehement, repeated,
or extensive criticism of the behavior of Jews or the state of Israel
and its leaders is anti-Semitism. (See, The
Real Motive Behind the 'Department of Global Anti-Semitism') Accordingly,
ADL now vilifies me as a prominent anti-Semite. Along with former
President Carter and professors Mearsheimer and Walt, I am smeared
by ADL as a purveyor of anti-Semitic ideas.
ADL says Carter’s ideas stimulate anti-Semitism because he
describes Israel ’s treatment of the Palestinians as “abominable” and
suggests that Jews dominate Congress and America ’s opinion-making
elite. ADL brands Mearsheimer and Walt as anti-Semitic for revealing
Jews’ disproportionate power in Congress and the White House. M&W
contend the Jewish lobby is primarily responsible for America ’s
Israel-protecting war in the Mideast . Carter, M&W and I agree
that nearly 60 years of Israeli brutality against the Palestinians
remains the primary incitement of Arab terrorism and Mid-East tension.
Yet I bring to this discussion another allegation which makes me,
according to ADL, “ virulently anti-Semitic.” I reveal
and exhaustively document in my works that within the religion of
Talmudic Judaism exist racist teachings that encourage Jews to believe
Israel is destined to control the world under her false "messiah." Such
teachings are embodied in the most revered, sacred scriptures of
modern Judaism—the Talmud and Zohar (Kabbalah). These
unchanging doctrines stimulate Jews to acquire excessive power and
behave in ways, especially in Palestine , that incite hostility.

My 345-page book Israel : Our Duty…Our Dilemma and four
major video documentaries (viewable
here at video.google.com) show how the ancient Pharisees, whom
Christ so vehemently attacked, hijacked Hebrew monotheism. They transformed
it into a vehicle of Pharisaic self-righteousness, power, and Messianic
global ambition. Their racial antagonism and separateness preserved
Jewish identity (at great cost) in millennia of dispersion. It also
created a backlash of anti-Semitism. Meanwhile, there is overwhelming
evidence that the Pharisees' disciples worked covertly within host
nations, especially during the past 225 years, attempting to undermine
their Christian and later capitalistic underpinnings. (See, Jewish
Activists Created Communism)
Guilt by Association?
Unable to refute anything Ted Pike has written or said over the
past 23 years, ADL attacked me primarily through “guilt by
association” with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, or racist groups
who use my research, distribute my videos, or post my un-copywritten
articles on their websites.
I am affiliated with only one organization, the National Prayer
Network. ADL falsely charges that I have “a long-standing affiliation
with American Free Press (AFP), an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented
newspaper…Pike is an AFP staff member, having served on its
Western Regional Bureau. He continues to serve on staff with several
About six years ago AFP asked me to write some articles on hate laws and referred
to me as a “western correspondent.” I wrote six articles; two were
published. This ended my six-week affiliation as “western correspondent.” I
have never been affiliated with AFP before or since.
Similarly, ADL blames Ted Pike for linking to “anti-Semitic” websites
such as AFP, Texe Marrs, "Criminal Politics," "We
Hold These Truths," and Darryl Bradford Smith. I have found
these websites, which contain a wealth of information not available
in mainstream media, anti-Zionist but not anti-Semitic. (Because
of Smith’s increasingly intemperate remarks, about four months
ago I decided to no longer link to his website.)
My relationship to all talk show hosts is similarly open and informal.
Sir Winston Churchill said if the devil himself would aid him to
defeat Hitler, he would take his help. I wouldn’t go that far;
but, considering the threat posed by Jewish supremacism, I would
accept airtime even from Howard Stern! Since mainline and Christian
media won’t warn against this enormous danger, I am forced
to not be too picky about who helps me spread the truth.
ADL alleges, “Ted Pike maintains a broad-based network of
anti-Semitic, white supremacist, and conspiracy-theory affiliations
to broadcast his anti-Semitic message.” Nonsense. My
policy of working with talk show hosts of any persuasion, left or
right, is inspired by Jesus. The Pharisees (the literal and spiritual
ancestors of ADL) said derisively of Jesus, “Why does your
master eat with publicans and sinners?” (Matt. 9:11) Yet for
Jesus, there was no one who, asking an audience with Him, was refused.
When publicans, harlots, lepers, and even Pharisees came desiring
to talk to Him, He reciprocated, sharing the good news of salvation.
This past week, 12 national talk show hosts interviewed me, very
curious as to why new right leaders betrayed their followers and
allowed the hate bill to be passed (probably to provide President
Bush and Republicans with the prestige of vetoing it). (See, Hate
Bill Manipulators Should Come Clean) I talked to them and to
roughly a million American listeners, but at no point did I become “linked” to
a talk host because I granted an interview. Christ
came to save the lost; but to do so, He had to talk to them. He did not become "affiliated" with
them by so doing.
No Racism Here
Evidence of a Talmudic conspiracy against Christian civilization
is overwhelming. It is easily discovered without my help! When people
realize the real aim of elite Jewish activism, they tend to turn
against Jews as a whole. My work, however, by its Biblical perspective
and moderation, helps protect the Jewish people. I believe the Bible
rebukes denigration of the Jewish race, and a truly Biblical worldview
repudiates all attitudes or acts of bigotry.
Unlike actual anti-Semites, I would never assert that Talmudic
hostility to Christianity comes from racial degeneracy among Jews.
It results from moral decisions—the kind we all make. Modern
Jewish activists make the same moral choices of Israel ’s religious
leaders nearly 2,000 years ago. They rejected their true Messiah
and His spiritual kingdom, and embarked on a long-term quest for
another messiah to grant them physical dominion.
Someday, after the horrendous collapse of the coming one-world
Zionist government, Christ will return and will, through Jewish repentance,
restore a remnant of beleaguered Jews to faith in Him. Right now,
all Jews need the message of Christ’s astonishing power to
save. More than any other Christian leader, I influence the far (including
racist) right toward this compassionate Biblical perspective.
Some say that, even if certain facts about Judaism are true, Ted
Pike shouldn’t make them known because anti-Semites will use
such information to defame and possibly persecute God’s chosen
people. If that were true, the Bible itself should be banned. It
also tells us much that is unflattering about the Jewish religion
and its leaders. Many anti-Semites, in fact, have used it to malign
and even persecute Jews throughout the ages.
The Bible teaches our duty before God is to speak the whole truth
about evil, wherever it exists. Having done so, we are not responsible
for how others may manipulate or abuse the truth.
Quotes out of Context
ADL’s attack includes several quotes from my work that may
1. “Certainly the white Caucasian race and Christian
civilization are a tremendous barrier to the eventual goal of the
Talmud and Kabbalah of the Jews, which is to rule over the nations
in fulfillment of scriptural prophecy and have a one-world government
centering in Jerusalem, and a Messiah that will take the place of
Jesus Christ in the nations.” (Interview with Hesham Tulawi)
Here ADL infers that I sympathize with white supremacists and racists.
But my meaning is only this: Since the late 18th century, the industrialization
and free market capitalism of the western world, primarily in the
US , Great Britain , France and Germany , were developed within Caucasian,
Christian civilization. To realize Talmudic, Kabalistic goals of
domination over the nations, this formidable power had to be weakened
or destroyed. Toward this end, Jews have predominated in leadership
of anti-Christian, anti-capitalist, socialist and communist ideologies
and revolutions. This included the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 and
myriad shades of leftism and anti-Christianity to the present. (See, Jewish
Activists Created Communism)
2. “Because the majority of Jews have habitually followed
the machinations of a core of zealots or troublemakers, we are compelled
to make, in a collective sense, truthful, yet often derogatory statements
about the broad trends of Jewish behavior, referring to them as ‘the
The New Testament writers invariably describe the persecutors of
the early church as “the Jews.” Of course, neither then
nor now do all Jews actively oppose Christianity. (A majority does
favor a liberal agenda that promotes homosexuality, abortion, and
other policies that deeply oppose Christian values; 87 percent of
American Jews voted for the liberal Democrats who now dominate the
US House of Representatives.) (See, Why
Most Jews Support the Hate Bill)
I no longer use New Testament permission to speak collectively
of "the Jews." I now clearly refer to Zionist enemies of
Christian civilization as “evil Jewish leaders.” I consistently
distinguish between many Jews and the minority of liberal activists—primarily
radiating from ADL/B’nai B’rith—who spearhead hate
laws, virulent anti-Christianity in Hollywood and media, and the
pirating of US foreign policy for Israel ’s benefit.
3. “Yet the greatest liberation of Israel will be from
her spiritual sickness and the ‘filthiness of her fornication’ which
has always made her stink in the nostrils of God and men. God shall
take the rebuke of His people away. No longer will the term ‘Jew’ be
secretly odious in the mind of a Gentile.”
This passage from my book (pg. 266) describes God’s latter
day deliverance of a Jewish remnant. Scripture says He will transform
them, through their repentance, from the most anti-Christ force in
the world to the most zealous believers the world has ever seen!
I merely agree with all the ancient prophets and New Testament
writers that Israel , in any stage of apostasy, corrupts and offends
her Gentile neighbors. St. Paul wrote of such unbelieving Jews: "For
the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as
it is written." (Rom. 2:24 ) Someday such reproach will be gone.
ADL, of course, did not finish my passage, which quotes Jeremiah’s
promise: “I will bring them health…I will cure them,
and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth…I
will cleanse them from all their iniquity.” (Jer. 33:6, 8)
I conclude, “ Jerusalem shall be righteous in that day because
of the Spirit-filled righteousness of those who inhabit it. This
is all that God ever really wanted from the Jews and now He has it.”
Does such altruism confirm ADL’s accusation that Ted Pike
is guilty of “vicious anti-Semitism," hateful of the Jewish
people, scheming against them in shadowy long-term alliances with
anti-Semites, neo-Nazis and white supremacists? Hardly! It is remarkable
that these last three quotations are the most ADL has been able to
dredge up against me after 23 years of the minutest analysis of literally
every word I have uttered in public.
Over two decades, hundreds of thousands, investigating my works,
have discovered the truth: Ted Pike and his wife Alynn are nothing
more or less than straightforward concerned Christians and Americans.
We bring to everyone, both Jew and Gentile, a message of spiritual
and even political salvation, a message which all who love freedom
need very much to hear.
