Traditionally, Christmas is the time when some Jewish scholar come out in support of Christian Zionists, Evangelists, and Jesuits to prove that Christianity is an extension of Judaism. Therefore, Christians have to support Jews against Muslims.
This year, a so-called ‘Jewish authority’ on Christianity, professor emeritus Bernard Starr (City University of New York, Brooklyn College) in an article entitled, Who founded Christianity? published on December 24, 2016 – claimed that it’s not Jesus or even St. Paul (Saul) who invented Christianity – but Jews.
“Nowhere in the New Testament does Jesus or Paul say he is rejecting Judaism and starting a new religion. In fact, the term “Christian” doesn’t appear at all in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), which chronicle Jesus’ spiritual mission; and only later, three times in the rest of the New Testament. The first utterance of the word “Christian” occurred when Paul was teaching in Antioch more than a decade after the crucifixion,” said Starr.
Jesus and his cotemporary John the Baptist and his father Zachariah were biblical prophets but none of them claimed to be Christians. They, like Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Yusuf, Moses, David, and Jesus were all followers of religion of Adam and sent to reform Allah’s message corrupted by peoples.
Even the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) never claimed to be founder of a new religion. He claimed that the Creator had assigned the job of correcting the Divine Message given to all prophets from Adam (as) to Jesus (as) while finalizing Allah’s Guidance to entire Humanity. That’s why his followers call themselves Muslims (people who submits to Allah), and not Muhammadan.
“But the word “Jew” appears 202 times in the New Testament, with 82 of those mentions in the Gospels,” claimed Starr.
Interestingly, Israeli historian professor Shlomo Sand in his 2009 book, The Invention of the Jewish People, claims that JEWS never existed before the 19th century. So, one wonders who is lying – Starr or Sand? May be Starr is referring to Zionist Scofield Bible.
Famous theologian whistleblower Charles Carlson wrote: “The Scofield Reference Bible was not to be just another translation, subverting minor passages a little at a time. No, Scofield produced a revolutionary book that radically changed the context of the King James Version. It was designed to create a subculture around a new worship icon, the state of Israel, a state that did not yet exist, but which was already on the drawing boards of the committed, well-funded authors of the World Zionism.”
Pastor David J. Stewart (died 2016) claimed last year that Christians are forbidden to bless Jews who are cursed by God. As a Muslim, however, I don’t agree with Stewart, because my Allah is Merciful Who judges people according to their deeds in this life.
Zionist Jewish Dr. David Hillel Gelernter (Yale University) in an article, entitled, Why should a Jew care whether Christianity Lives or Dies?, published at Israel’s advocacy magazine First Things on March 24, 2015, said: “I argued last month that Pope Francis ought to see the reconversion of Europe (eradication of Muslim immigration) as his most important task. Surely he agrees that European Christianity is in deep trouble. Surely he does not believe that Christianity no longer matters to Europe, or can no longer be compelling to Europeans. How can he ignore a catastrophe on his doorstep?,” Gelernter wrote.
German Jewish journalist, author and human rights activist, Evelyn Hecht-Galinski doesn’t agree with the two Zionist propagandists. In a recent article, entitled, O terrible, illegal, Jewish occupation time!, she wrote that if Jesus returns to the Holy Land under Jewish occupation – he would certainly have joined Hamas.
“Palestinian Christians have a daily first-hand experience of what occupation means with the Jewish settlements that surround them making life intolerable. Yes, the misery and injustice of the illegal Jewish occupation of Palestine doesn’t stop even in front of Christians! The Christian and Muslim Palestinians have been sitting together in an occupation boat since decades now, with the only change being that conditions are getting worse from year to year. Together they endure endless humiliation, countless checkpoints and other forms of illegal settlers’ subterfuge designed to expel the indigenous people from their homeland. Of some million Palestinian Christians only 20% remain in the illegally occupied Palestine and in the “Jewish State”. Desperate conditions and the unemployment force many young people to emigrate with the consequence that both Christians and Muslims are victims of Palestine’s ethnic cleansing,” wrote Hecht-Galinski.
“The pastor’s daughter and Christian Zionist Merkel expresses her solidarity with the Jewish occupiers and land predators rather than with the Christian Palestinians and the Christians in Palestine/Israel suffering from the occupation. Why all the Christian dignitaries up to now only speak at pro-Israeli rallies but never at rallies organized by Palestinians against the illegal occupation of Palestine? Is this a Christian attitude?,” she wonders.
