As you may know, much of Western Europe has made it a criminal offense to criticize Jews or the “State of Israel” or question the validity of the “Holocaust.” If you do, you can expect a prison sentence for this thought crime.
Here in America, at least at the present, we still have some semblance of the first Amendment right to free speech. But change is in the wind when it comes to anti-Semitism. It is politically forbidden, and as far as "Christian Zionists” – it is an anathema.
Florida Anti-Semitic Legislation
On June 4, 2019 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed into legislation this law regarding anti-Semitism:
“Using the State Department definition as its template, the legislation defines as anti-Semitism calls for violence against Jews, advancing conspiracy theories about Jewish control and Holocaust denial. It also includes ‘applying double standards’ to Israel ‘by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.’ ” 1 (emphasis added)
Presently, this legislation applies to public education institutions in Florida, including colleges and universities.
Interestingly, two days prior to the Governor signing this legislation, he was in Jerusalem for a "ceremonial signing” of the same. Why was DeSantis there? Is there a little collusion of influence from the Jews over there perhaps?
Bottom line: In Florida the Jews are now an official protected class.
Of course, the Florida legislature passed the bill unanimously two days after a California synagogue shooting took place. I wonder about the sequence of these types of events. Seems like everything is coordinated to create a specific, planned outcome. Is somebody staging this whole thing? One thing I do know, nothing consistently happens by accident. (I heard this definition of “conspiracy theory” once: “One who disagrees with known lies.”)
For Florida, this legislation is just one more step in the direction of making criticism of the Jews or questioning the so-called “Holocaust” a criminal offence.
Federal Government Takes Action
On March 7 of this year, the US House of Representatives “passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism … by a vote of 407-32.” 2 The resolution contained nine clauses, one of which stated:
“Whereas Jewish people are subject in the media and political campaigns to numerous other dangerous anti-Semitic myths as well, including that Jews control the United States Government or seek global, political, and financial domination and that Jews are obsessed with money;…” 2
– which are among the focus of condemnation of all things anti-Semitic.
Sounds like the federal government is just warming up.
Coming Criminalization of Anti-Semitism
What I see is that the road is being paved nicely and systematically to, one day in the future, make it a crime to say anything against the Jews or that State of Israel over there. Jewish power will see to it. Watch and listen.
But why go to this extent to make anti-Semitism a criminal offense? Could it be because too much factual information is getting out to Americans (and Europeans) about who the Jews really are and what they are doing? Could it be that the Jews – especially the radical Zionists – are afraid of exposure?
Whatever the reasons may be, I am prepared to defend myself should I ever be accused of anti-Semitism. My first defense will be to challenge the modern, political/religious definition of this term. As I point out and document in my book, Identifying Biblical Israel Today, the Jews of today are not Semites. They are descendants of Japheth, along with other bloodlines. Anti-Semitism means against those descended from Shem (Sem). If the modern day Jews are not Semites, then how can I be accused of anti-Semitism? Love to present that to a jury!
It’s like accusing someone of “money laundering” federal reserve notes or checkbook credit when these have already been declared as not “money.” “Money” is defined as gold and silver coin – the weight and value thereof. How can money laundering be a crime when what passes for “money” is not “money”?
The same goes for anti-Semitism. We must begin with the correct definition. Blows the case wide open.
