The Theological Credo of the Lutheran Reformation and Herman Otten of Christian News

      My longtime friend in the Confessionally Lutheran Faith and fellow journalist, Herman Otten of Christian News, has gone to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in eternity as of two days ago, April 24th, 2019.  Love Him or Hate Him, count me as one always in Herman’s corner in life when we first occasionally began working together over decades.  His place in Lutheran history and in the history of cutting edge Alternative Media in a pre-technological/pre-Internet era is absolutely guaranteed, regardless of what one would say about him now.  As for his considerable number of enemies, Otten loved publishing their original works of trash with complete glee and sarcastic wit.  Two items of hilarity for him in the current media would have been the tragi-comedic posts of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency entitled “A Chicago Space for LGBTQ Jews Becomes a ‘Queer Jeshiva for Everybody’,” and the Russia Today post on Sonalee Rashatwar entitled “‘Fat Sex Therapist’ Compares Fitness to Nazism, Dieting to Rape.” Herman would have noted editorially that Sonalee’s Seminar was delivered at St. Olaf’s “Lutheran” College in Minnesota.

     At the same time, he loved me on the radio and quietly followed my pathway there.  Herman likely missed my On-The-Air work this past week.  He’s listening now from Above. And making notes.  . . . He is probably also viewing the You Tube video of highlights of his life and his family’s ministry to him in his final days of this temporal existence, put together by his son Tim.

Herman Otten Loved This Meme of Israel’s “Christian” Bitch-in-Chief.

     The evidence of his personality and journalistic omnipresence is everywhere, ranging from the Lutheran Logia journal which gives him a qualified Thumbs-Up to liberal Matthew Becker of Valparaiso University and Day Star, which gives him an unqualified Thumbs-Down.  The latter was finally removed from the clergy roster of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod after a lengthy investigation which would never have occurred had the bureaucracy of that Synod not been hounded by the public exposure of Becker’s views over a very long period of time by–you guessed it–Herman Otten.

Lutheran Pastor Mark Dankof and Reformed Baptist Pastor Dale Crowley, Jr. both named on the Christian News roster of “Soldiers of the Cross.”

     An additional 1992 read which underscores his pivotal role as a watchdog of Missouri Synod machinations and Synodical Presidential elections over decades can be accessed as well, courtesy of a Chicago Tribune repost from Victor Volland of the St. Louis Post Dispatch. It is entitled, “Lutheran Journalist Plays Role of Spoiler.”  This sample is but a microcosm of his role as Editor of Christian News since 1962.  Another is the essay of Robert Benne, Director of the Center on Religion and Society at Roanoke College for Richard John Neuhaus’s First Things, entitled “The Trials of American Lutheranism.” While Dr. Benne’s ideological bias is revealed in his fine article, it does illustrate what James Adams, Religion Editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote in his pivotal work, “Preus of Missouri and the Great Civil War” about the role of Herman Otten and Christian News in bringing down John Tietjen and a majority liberal faculty at Concordia Seminary in February of 1974.  Adams correctly observed that when historians would chronicle the ugliness of that Civil War over decades, the pivotal role of Otten in making it happen would be forever remembered.

    Another brief and poignant remembrance of the great man I have always thought of as the H. L. Mencken of Christian Journalism has just been posted on April 25th by Dr./Pastor Karl Fabriziius of Gottesdienst:  The Journal of Lutheran Liturgy.  It is entitled “Remembering Herman Otten.” It is yet another reminder of the place of Herman Otten and Christian News in the annals of American Lutheran history.

     As far as Richard John Neuhaus and First Things go, Christian News reported the truth:  Neuhaus had received $8.5 million dollars in contributions from Jewish Neo-Conservative sources for his long-time service to the State of Israel and Zionist Wars.  It wasn’t all about Hagee, Robertson, and Falwell.  The Synagogue of Satan had also skillfully covered its bets with a Lutheran turned Roman Catholic, who knew how to keep his printing press going and with great Mainstream Media reviews.

     Herman knew too much and was willing to speak and write about what he really thought.  People in power feared him, as he could not be compromised or purchased because of his faith and his commitment to a bedrock subscription to the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. Because of this, he would be the target of relentless ad hominem attacks and demonization for decades. Each punch thrown his way was met by his shifty footwork and public journalistic counterpunch.  He instinctively understood that the world was both a cruel place to an honest man, and not the final stop, but only a fleeting transition for a brief moment to the blessed home in eternity awaiting the Christian believer.  What remains forever unfathomable is that he was simultaneously an effective parish pastor over the same period of temporal time, and had the absolute support of wife Grace, his kids, and his grandchildren in everything he was doing at the Lord’s behest.  Otten’s personal call to a ministry of Word and Sacrament proclaimed in his pulpit each Sunday was also his personal call to combat on the other 6 days of the week what he saw as an insidious threat to Biblical orthodoxy, culture, and morality via his pen and typewriter.  In his “spare” time, he participated for years in triathlons.

     Love Him or Hate Him, You Must Deal With Him.

Otten to Dankof:  “Are You Keeping Your Bedside Devotions Active Every Night?”

     My conversations with the legendary Editor of Christian News over decades all began flooding back to me the day after his passing in New Haven.  I’ll relate the last one we had in 2015 that involved an incredibly serious matter involving Yours Truly with the ability to laugh with Herman about it later.

     Bottom line:  I almost had to legitimately shoot a man to death beating a woman in my apartment complex parking lot in San Antonio on Columbus Day that year.  My account of this may be accessed here.  I told my long-time friend about the details you may now read about.

     I was explaining to the good Pastor and Editor about my choice of firearm, the particular load in the magazine and chamber, and the Combat Handgunning technique of the Defensive Two-Tap to the upper torso (“Bang, Bang” best enacted with a semi-automatic and two lightning squeezes of the trigger, not jerking). I did so only because he was asking all the questions about the particulars. Herman then spoke of a theoretical headline only Otten could come up with instantly for Page One had I actually been forced to use the weapon: “Christian News Exclusive: Dankof’s Defensive Two-Tap and Walther’s ‘Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel.'”

     For those who follow me now on Press TV/Iran, National Bugle Radio on RBN, Duke on Rense Radio Live, the American Free Press, Don Wassall’s Nationalist Times, Russia Insider, Russia Faith, Russia News Now, the Andrew Carrington Hitchcock Show in the UK, Al Ansaar Radio, CII International Radio of Johannesburg/Durban, Culture Wars, Dankof with Jonas E. Alexis of Veterans Today, BATR/SARTRE, and countless other places in the last two decades, history will reveal that I was originally elevated to my level of visibility in the last 19 years by two things.  One was my run for the U. S. Senate in 2000 in Delaware against William Roth and Tom Carper as the nominated delegate of the Constitution Party.  Even more importantly, my foray into Alternative Media for the Old Right was launched by my book review for Herman Otten and Christian News that made it into the 9-11 Commemorative Issue only days after September 11th, 2001.  The book reviewed was Gordon Thomas’s Gideon’s Spies:  The Secret History of the Mossad. Mr. Thomas himself contacted me from Ireland after seeing it.  That would have been impossible in a pre-Internet age.

Otten08

The Post 9-11 launch of Mark Dankof into Alt Right Action was because of Herman Otten of Christian News on September 17th, 2001.  The Fallout from that Book Review continues to this day.

     I had occasionally contributed to Christian News since the late 1980s, but the Thomas book review published after 9-11 changed the course of my life.  I could never have foreseen any of this, but on occasion Herman published a handful of items under my byline that bear special reiteration:  My memorial to the great Pastor Dale Crowley, Jr. was one of them.  My interview with Howard Phillips for Christian News was subsequently run by World Net Daily in its entirety.  My Page One interview with Dr. James Montgomery Boice is no longer online anywhere, but Christian News Encyclopedia will have it. My tribute to my academic advisor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Dr. Harold O. J. Brown, was another Otten editorial publish that also made it into wider evangelical circles that found him too tough on the Bad Guys in their midst otherwise.  I am informed that the TEDS faculty actually posted the Christian News original in the faculty lounge after the Brown death for a period of days.  I found this amusing:  The implication was that Dankof had written a terrific tribute to Joe Brown, but having Trinity students encountering both Dankof and Herman Otten in print with reference to the seminary was a potentially inflammatory risk.  For the record:  Harold O. J. Brown loved Christian News.  He read every issue.  I made sure he made it when he preceded Pastor Otten in the Kingdom of God.

     These lovable Protestant Evangelicals could not quite handle the Otten style of sardonic-to-the-point-of-inflicted anguish humor always brandished when absolutely warranted.  A classic example of this was the “prophetic vision” of Montanist Charismatic Guru Jamie Buckingham in the late 1980s.  It related to Buckingham’s direct unmediated message from the Holy Spirit to the former that Jamie would receive a Supernatural Healing and Deliverance to Claim and Proclaim from the sad case of cancer affliction he had encountered.  Charisma magazine and other Montanist outlets were playing it up big at the time and using it to sell other Charismatic Montanists on the idea of simply naming and claiming their physical deliverance from dreaded disases and suffering by clinging to Jamie’s received revelation. Only Herman Otten had the guts at the time to publish the dangers to Christians of accepting such transparent and heretical nonsense at face value from these self-anointed Evangelical Superstars.

The Flag of Israel-First Evangelicals, Capitol Hill, the ADL, the SPLC, Aryeh Tuchman of J-Hate, Joe Biden, and LGBTQ. Herman Otten was their Eternal Adversary.

     Jamie Buckingham sadly died 3 years later.  Christian News published the news story on his passing and obituary, alongside what Charisma had published some 36 months before on his Supernatural Healing of Deliverance to Claim and Proclaim message courtesy of the Holy Spirit’s person-to-person call that Buckingham asked everyone to believe actually transpired.  There was no editorial comment from Herman Otten.

Otten Answers the ADL Chief On The Line:  “Don’t Like Dankof’s Last Op-Ed?  His Dog is More Well Read Than You Are, You Jerk.”

     Message:  Only Christian News will remind people of the entire context of this sad story.  Christian News isn’t making light of a man’s illness, suffering, and death.  But false teaching and a heretical Montanism being passed off as Biblical doctrine and praxis has to be held accountable to the truth.  Buckingham was a heretic.  Everybody else is tap-dancing around this.  We Won’t.  We Never Will.

     Pastor Herman Otten lives today with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  That was and is his message to you.  I loved him in life.  I love him now.  I and all believers will yet encounter Herman and his manual typewriter, printing press, subscriber snail mail list, and Enemies Now in the Lake of Fire List in the Kingdom of God (Romans 10:9).

     Requiescat In Pace, Thou Who Hast Been Faithful Unto Death (Revelation 2:10).

RE:  Your anonymous Internet posts at “J-Hate” on Mark Dankof, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State-Fullerton , Mark Glenn, Michael Collins Piper, Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and Press TV/Iran

Dear Rabbi Tuchman:

     You have been positively identified by IPS address and e-mail research/trace as the person posting materials anonymously on the Internet on all the individuals and entities mentioned above, including me, on a website entitled, “J-Hate.”

     I have begun researching you on the Internet since discovering your specific interest in me. Max Blumenthal’s April 13th, 2010 essay at Mondoweiss, entitled, “Propagandistic Anti-Semitism Report Raises The Linkage Issue,” links your name to that specific effort.  Blumenthal’s research and spin tells me a great deal on an initial basis, even as I continue to learn more ongoingly.

     As chronicled in my previous essay, “J-Hate:  Yes, Hate, but Also Cowardice,” you indicated to me via a message sent to my Word Press blog that it was your desire that I not discover your real identity.  The J-Hate site also failed to publish my comments e-mailed to it, in response to the initial posts that involved my name.

     Now that I am fully apprised as to your actual identity and role in all of this, I must say that I am mystified as to why you and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith in New York would feel it necessary to engage in such cowardly and clandestine activity on the World Wide Web, especially since all of the figures targeted by your efforts are amenable to cordial and public conversation and debate about your perceptions and concerns.

     Personally, I find free and fair exchange of ideas in an honest forum and format to be eminently preferable to the utilization of innuendo, guilt-by-indirect-association, ad hominem attacks, and downright deliberate falsehood, especially when employed by someone of your stature who is dishonorably operating in a darkened closet (or is it a running subterranean sewer system?) in both New York and Tel Aviv.

     Proper, peaceful, and lawful exercise of Constitutionally-guaranteed First Amendment rights and freedoms in the public arena among people of good will with diametrically opposed political positions used to define the United States of America as the bedrock foundation of its government, its people, and its institutions.  What is happening in this country, Rabbi, as conveyed by actions like yours?  Perhaps more importantly, why is it happening?

     The ADL has a history too lengthy to recount here, but its fingerprints (and those of its sister organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Israeli Mossad) are all over several recent publicly outlandish embarrassments that are most suggestive of where this country is headed.

     The first is the public leak of the existence of the now-infamous Missouri Action Information Center (MIAC) report of several years ago, which your organization played a direct role in producing in conjunction with our Federal Homeland Security Department.  As chronicled in the Americans for Legal Immigration’s (AIPAC) advisory on MIAC, the SPLC, and your ADL:

ALIPAC is issuing a national advisory to all local, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies and officers, along with all DHS Fusion Centers, a warning against any reliance upon faulty and politicized research issued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Anti Defamation League (ADL).

A national scandal emerged in Missouri, after their MIAC Fusion Center issued an eight page document which made many false claims. The documents attempted to politicize police and cast suspicion on millions of Americans. The ‘Missouri Documents’, as they came to be called, listed over 32 characteristics police should watch for as signs or links to domestic terrorists, which could threaten police officers, court officials, and infrastructure targets.

Police were instructed to look for Americans who were concerned about unemployment, taxes, illegal immigration, gangs, border security, abortion, high costs of living, gun restrictions, FEMA, the IRS, The Federal Reserve, and the North American Union/SPP/North American Community. The ‘Missouri Documents’ also said potential domestic terrorists might like gun shows, short wave radios, combat movies, movies with white male heroes, Tom Clancey Novels, and Presidential Candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and Chuck Baldwin!

The Southern Poverty Law Center was cited as a research source for the ‘Missouri Documents’. Furthermore, the attempt of these documents to cast suspicion of violent and life threatening behavior on millions of Americans who are concerned about these issues is consistent with the regularly released political materials of both the SPLC and ADL.

     A second and related incident crops up in the State of Kentucky, where it emerges at the Daily Paul site that Mr. Baldwin’s Constitution Party was similarly libeled as a “hate group.”  Surely you are aware that the Constitution Party was founded by ex-Nixon cabinet member Howard Phillips, of Jewish background, who also serves as chairman of Washington’s Conservative Caucus.  Phillips has been a Washington insider held in high personal esteem by both his friends and adversaries Inside-the-Beltway for decades.  The Constitution Party’s last two Presidential nominees, Michael Peroutka of Baltimore, and Chuck Baldwin of Pensacola, are an attorney-at-law and Baptist pastor respectively.  Like their counterparts Howard Phillips, Pat Buchanan, and Ron Paul, no sane person could detect anything about these men in ideological persuasion or personal life, that could possibly be used to support the notion that they and their political parties and followers represent any notions of racism, bigotry, violence, or advocacy of behaviors designed to threaten the Constitutional Republic each has dedicated his life to restoring.  The irresponsible characterizations and canards emanating from the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith and the Southern Poverty Law Center about all of this will not stand up to even cursory inspection and examination.

     And by now of course, you are also undoubtedly aware that I was the Constitution Party’s U. S. Senate candidate against Thomas Carper and the late William Roth, in 2000.  Since Senator Carper is friendly to the Jewish lobby and Israeli interests up on the Hill, why not pick up the phone and ask him what he knows about me personally?  Be sure to tell him what you and the ADL are up to in terms of updating your dossiers on me, along with Phillips, Peroutka, Baldwin, Buchanan, and Paul.  He can advise you accordingly on what to do with me in particular, once the raucous laughter dies down in his office.  . . .

     Finally, the ADL’s ongoing attempts to label Pat Buchanan as an “anti-Semite” are a matter of most interesting public record available for additional closer inspection. I notice that Eric Margolis, long-time international correspondent and contributor to the Toronto Sun and other syndicated outlets, has positively reviewed Buchanan’s book on the Second World War. Is Margolis now going to be pilloried for flirtations with advocates of  “extremism” and “hate” ? And what about millions of Americans and people world-wide who have concluded that Buchanan is a more than credible academic voice and historian in chronicling what has gone wrong with with the government, economy, and foreign policy of the United States?  Will all of these folks become a part of the computerized data base being developed by your office in New York?

     And speaking of the Toronto Sun, I have apparently been on your office’s radar screen since writing a Letter-to-the-Editor of that newspaper some years ago, in rebuttal of one Michael Coren, whose missal advocating the mass murder of Iranians via preemptive nuclear attack had been previously published there.  My rejoinder was re-posted by the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto

     I’m curious, Rabbi Tuchman.  Are my ideas in this letter to the Toronto Sun really beyond-the-pale, or do they not only reflect the point of view of millions of Americans if the truth be both known and told, but even the concerns of people in your own camp historically, as evidenced by the Los Angeles Times’ recent essay entitled, “In Israel, Growing Intolerance,” and Jerome Slater’s 2007 missal in Tikkun, “The Need Not to Know:  The American Jewish Community and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict ? 

     Or, conversely, are the dangerous neo-Nazi legions and denizens at the Los Angeles Times and Tikkun now joining Mark Dankof, Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul, Howard Phillips, Mark Glenn, Mark Weber, and Paul Sheldon Foote as future targets of a covert Hasbara Project operation of discreditation on your part, and that of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith?

     And for the goyim among us, there may be an additional question of clarification:  When does a mere sayan become a kidon?  And will the intended victims of what is developing be given the chance to purchase an additional bit of life insurance?

     One thing would seem not to be in doubt upon examination of the evidence.  The Old American Republic is being traded in for its replacement by an ominously repristinated Stalinism, both in domestic and foreign policy.  Mark Weber’s essay at the Institute of Historical Review on the old Russian model and revolution may be applicative here.

     Let’s face it.  Like Old Uncle Joe’s predecessor version, we now have in the post-9/11 era in America, a proliferation of warrantless wire tapping and break-ins; accompanied by circumvention of the FISA court by several Chief Executives; and an entirely new version of American jurisprudence documented by James Bovard’s essay, “Assassin Nation,”  where a Justice Department lawyer named Douglas Letter argued last November 9th in Federal Court that the President of the United States has the authority to order the extra-judicial killing of American citizens, and that no Judge has the right to be “looking over the [Obama] Administration’s shoulder” where this program is concerned.

     Given this environment, what unease should be felt by law-abiding citizens of our land who express dissent from our government’s policies, including those American conservatives defamed in the MIAC report?  What about the fears of decent Arab-Americans and Iranian-Americans who live in an age of burgeoning Islamophobia?

     Notably, this loyal dissent by many profiled Americans left, right, and center, has involved explicit criticism of the Israeli Lobby, of which the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith is but one component, and the government of the Zionist State of Israel. 

     I, for one, do not support handing $10 billion a year to Israel in American taxpayers’ money, to continue enabling the latter to illegally occupy territories denied to it by international law.  I don’t support the continuation of the laughable campaign finance laws in this country that have allowed some 30-odd PACs connected to the Israeli Lobby to flood the American electoral process with money guaranteed to enable a foreign power to exert its undue influence in our Congress, especially by packing its hand-picked emissaries in disproportionate numbers on Committees and Sub-Committees related to Intelligence, Foreign Policy, Homeland Security, and Appropriations (as chronicled by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs).

     I especially protest Israel’s criminal attack last May on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla in international waters, and the murderous policies being pursued in Gaza which culminated in this atrocity.  I do not support Israel’s resort to “targeted, extra-judicial killings” (read “assassinations”), anymore than I support these practices when used by any government on the planet, including my own.  And despite recent the endorsement of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) by Rudolph Giuliani, Frances Townsend, Clare Lopez, Dr. Raymond Tanter, Tom Tancredo, and other American Neo-Conservatives with connections to Israel’s Lobby and its intelligence agencies, I continue to affirm what the record shows—that the MEK is indeed a Marxist terror organization with a long history of shed blood, and that its recent claims of responsibility for various acts of murder and mayhem in Tehran, and in the Diyala, Balochistan, and Azerbaijan provinces in Iran, reveal the less-than-hidden hand of the Israeli Mossad and American CIA in these events. Is murder truly murder, and terror truly terror, regardless of the identity of perpetrators and victims, or shall it be excused by the Israeli Lobby and its agents of influence in the American government in this situation, as it was in the Irgun’s bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, and in the subsequent celebration of this latter criminal event by Mr. Netanyahu and Company as chronicled in the Sunday Times

     Finally, in the wake of the Jonathan Pollard and Rosen-Weissman spy cases (see ex-CIA station chief in Turkey Philip Giraldi’s new article on the latter), the Lavon Affair, the PROMIS affair, and Israel’s premeditated attack on the USS Liberty (a judgment shared by Dean Rusk, Richard Helms, and Admiral Thomas Moorer), I most certainly oppose the American government’s inexplicable, ill-advised, and little-examined policy of sub-contracting lucrative and sensitive business related to the functions of domestic and international telecommunications; Homeland and TSA-related airport security operations; legitimate American military and intelligence agency work; and essential domestic law enforcement and investigatory projects and functions at both the Federal and State level, to Israeli-owned and affiliated front groups and companies. 

     For reasons that should be painfully obvious by now, that includes our government’s ill-fated involvement with the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith and Southern Poverty Law Center in profiling and demonizing honest American citizens, as both your clandestine role with the JHate web site and the aforementioned MIAC report fiasco illustrate.  Taken in conjunction with Mr. Giraldi’s new research on the AIPAC spy case, it is clear to many that both your organization and the latter should be defined as registered agents of a foreign regime under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), and forced to comply with the spirit and the letter of its stipulations. 

     One additional recent public revelation that illustrates the point should be included.  This involves the role of the Mossad-affiliated Institute of Terrorism Research and Response organization (with headquarters in Philadelphia and Tel Aviv) in conducting officially commissioned profiling of American citizens in the State of Pennsylvania for covert investigative purposes.  The tragic-comedic results of this contractual relationship are available for all to see through Google search, including the official apology of Governor Ed Rendell for the actions of ITRR while on his State’s payroll.  It is my understanding that the contract has since been canceled.  But it begs the question:  Is your activity at J-Hate, and ITRR’s activity in Pennsylvania, the tip of the iceberg?

     I join, however, with colleague Michael Collins Piper, once the subject of an ADL spying operation, in calling for our new Republican Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman, Representative Peter King of your home state of New York, to lead an investigation in Congress of this entire insidious spider web, and for the subsequent results of his Committee’s work to be made openly available to the American people.  This includes names of companies, financial figures, how specific contracts were granted to the organizations and individuals in question, and how the entire problem developed in the first place.  It should make for interesting reading.

     Finally, Rabbi Tuchman, I offer two (2) sincere invitations.  The first is for you to be a special guest on Mark Glenn’s The Ugly Truth for sure, and perhaps on Press TV/Iran as well, to discuss many of these issues related to our respective views and concerns, in an open and fair atmosphere of civility and charity.  It would be our intention to include Howard Phillips of the Constitution Party; Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton; Mark Weber of the Institute of Historical Review (IHR); Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX); Patrick J. Buchanan; and Dr. Paul Craig Roberts in these on-air chats, which may well prove stimulating enough for a multiple number of shows and appearances to be scheduled and produced for the international listening and viewing audiences.  I reiterate that this invitation is heartfelt and sincere.  I have sent this open letter to the folks at Press TV/Iran in the hope that they might consider an invitation to you in this identical spirit.

     The second invitation is issued clergyman-to-clergyman.  I invite you to repent of the practice of posting questionable materials on the Internet anonymously, and to consider the condition of your own heart, and that of colleagues like Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, when it comes to automatically assigning malignant motives rooted in racial and religious bigotry and malicious hatred to those who disagree with the Zionist agenda for both America and the world, while seemingly excluding the live possibility that this may well explain many of Israel’s actions in the Middle East since the late 1940s and those of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith, both in the United States and worldwide. 

     Come out of the closet and join us.  Let us reason together even as our disagreements are likely to remain deep and potentially unbridgeable.

Sincerely,

Mark Dankof
