Whence comes the imaginary camaraderie between Christianity and Judaism? And why are Christians so ignorant - or timid?

To what degree are Jewish interests antithetical to Christian conservatives?
It is obvious that American Jews have long been aligned with the Democratic Party. In many ways, the "Jewish community" broadly construed opposes many things that Christian conservatives champion.
"[T]raditonally[,] ...Jewish voters ...have favored Democrats by 2-to-1 margins."
This leftward leaning goes back at least to the era of Franklin Roosevelt. "[F]unctioning under the ...aegis of the Democratic party, American Jews fortied their reputation as the most dependably progressive ethnic community in the United States. In 1940, no fewer than 90 percent of their votes went to Roosevelt."
Despite the rightward orientation of a handful of Jewish king-makers (chiefly
Sheldon Adelson,left, but also smaller fry such as Norman Braman, Henry Kravis, Richard Roberts and Mel Sembler, two of whom - by the way, Adelson and Roberts - are said to favor Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker for the [as of this writing] upcoming the 2016 election), "as a group, Jews still endorse the Democratic Party at a rate of around 20 percentage points above most other Americans."
"Indeed, the Washington Post once estimated that Democratic presidential candidates 'depend on Jewish supporters to supply as much as 60 percent of the money raised from private sources. Other estimates are lower, but contributions from Jewish Americans form a substantial share - between 20 and 50 percent - of the contributions made to the Democratic party and its presidential candidates."
"Jews provided at least half the money donated to the DNC [Democratic National Committee] in the 1998 and 2000 election cycles."
Additionally, "as a matter of comparison they [Jews] are generally found to be the most liberal white ethnoreligious group in the United States."
To illustrate: At least one benchmark indicates that religious Jews are more likely to be atheists than people of other faiths. This is so prevalent that one journalist writes: "Atheism is entrenched in American Judaism. In researching their book American Grace, authors Robert Putnam and David Campbell found that half of all American Jews doubt God's existence. In other groups, that number is between 10 and 15 percent."
Within "rightwing Christian" circles, atheism is lamented. But there is a deafening silence from these supposedly concerned "Conservatives" when it comes to atheism infused American Judaism. As one synagogue-attendee, Maxim Schrogin, put it: "Atheism and Judaism are not contradictory, so to have an atheist in a Jewish congregation isn't an issue or a challenge or a problem."
There is a conspicuous case-study. Many Christians bemoan the removal of prayer from public schools. What many people do not know, however, is how this removal came about. It was the result of the landmark Engel v. Vitale, 370 U.S. 421 (1962) case, in which the U.S. Supreme Court legislated from the bench, decreeing it "unconstitutional" for public schools to adopt or encourage the recitation of "official" prayers in public schools.
The genesis of the case was this: "In the fall of 1958, Steven Engel visited his son's elementary school classroom in Hyde Park, New York. Engel, a Jew, was upset to see his son's hands clasped and his head bent in prayer. He told his son that this was 'not the way we say prayers.'"
As George Lincoln Rockwell observed in the late 1960s: "If Israel is a Jewish country and has the right to be Jewish, if Ghana is a black country and has the right to be black, why don't we have the right to keep a white country white and Christian? Why, how long do you think you people would last if you went over there to Israel and started campaigning in the Jewish schools in Israel against singing Jewish songs? And yet they're over here campaigning against us singing Christmas carols in ours. ...You can't sing Christmas carols in schools any more. They won't tolerate it, but we must."...
In another recent news item, we read about the activist goings on of one Michael "Mikey" Weinstein. "...A Pentagon ban on proselytizing has left some conservative activists fearful that Christian soldiers -- and even military chaplains -- could face court martial for sharing their faith.
"The Defense Department said this week that proselytizing -- trying to get someone to change faiths -- is banned. Its statement does not define proselytizing or address the role of military chaplains. It also does not rule out court martial for those whose share their faith too aggressively....[13, 14]
Additional evidence of Jewish left-leaning can be detected from the fact that the overwhelming majority of Jews - "religious" or "secular" - support abortion and "same sex marriage", both of which are opposed by many "religious Conservatives."
It is simply a fact that, historically, Jews have been at the forefront of liberalizing and activist politics.
Another important facet of the larger discussion contrasting "Conservative" and "Jewish interests" must therefore be to note the historical point that Jews have long advanced socialism, communism and other radical, leftist ideologies.,
Combined with the fact, established centuries ago by intrepid researchers like Gustaf Dalman, Johann Eisenmenger, Alexander McCaul, Bernhard Pick and Johann Wagenseil and admitted by honest scholars such as Theodor Keim and Princeton University's Peter Schaefer, that the Jewish Talmud holds that Jesus Christ was a blasphemer who was not only rightly accused and justly executed, but also - and outrageously - asserts such filthy scurrilities as that the Blessed Virgin Mary was a whore and that Jesus was justly executed for practicing magic and leading Israel astray and is now being punished in hell by being suspended in boiling human excrement; it's fairly compelling, as Michael Hoffman has argued at length, that the label "Judeo-Christian" is an oxymoron.
This is not a novel idea. Saint Paul indicated: "the Jews ...killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to everyone...".
Nevertheless, Christians continue to labor under the mistaken belief that Jews have some sort of robust kinship with Christians. The counterpoint can scarcely be better made than it was by Saint John the Evangelist, who wrote in 1 John 2:22-23: "Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist - denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also."
According to John, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, any person who denies Jesus also has neither the Son nor the Father. Therefore, on Biblical authority, it seems that whatever God the Jews proclaim, it simply cannot be the Father of Jesus - or else the New Testament is gravely mistaken.
As to the idea that (supposed) Jewish pedigree is salvific [leading to salvation] in and of itself, Jesus himself dismissed this when He said: "And do not think you can say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham." (Matthew 3:9).
In fact, more strongly, Jesus told the Pharisees - the forerunners of the rabbis: "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
As Saint Augustine of Hippo once reportedly said: "Judaism, since Christ, is a corruption; indeed Judas is the image of the Jewish people; their understanding of the Scriptures is carnal; they bear the guilt for the death of the Saviour, for through their fathers they killed the Christ."
The main point to Christians was and is: Whence comes the imaginary camaraderie between Christianity and Judaism? And why are Christians so ignorant - or timid?
First Comment from Jim Perloff:
Innumerable of my fellow Christians have thrown themselves unconditionally behind the Zionist cause. I often ask these Christians: "If you oppose communism and world government, which have always been funded by the Rothschilds, why would you favor Zionism, which is also funded by the Rothschilds? A bad tree does not bear good fruit." Unfortunately, these Christians have been seduced by the big lie (repeat something long enough and it becomes true), and Zionism has targeted Christians for more than a century, at least since the days of Cyrus Scofield, whose bankster-funded, Oxford-published, Switzerland-"researched" Scofield Reference Bible, filled with Zionist annotations, became a best-seller.
Christians who support the modern Zionist conquest of Palestine have abandoned two of the most fundamental Biblical Commandments, those against murder and theft. Despite the New Covenant under Christ, these Christians live under the delusion that we must re-live the book of Joshua. But the modern Palestinians are NOT the demon-worshiping trans-humanized giants of ancient Canaan, and if we are to believe Arthur Koestler's THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE and other thoughtful analyses, most of the modern Ashkenazi Zionists now dominating Palestine are NOT biological descendants of Abraham and have no conceivable claim to the land, even under the greatest stretch of Scriptural interpretation.
The main reason the evangelical church is still tolerated in America is because of its support for Zionism. Once the Zionists succeed in creating "Greater Israel" as a seat for the throne of Lucifer's world government, they will cast off the American evangelical church like a whore who, having grown old and ugly, serves no further purpose.
In my opinion, Christians and Muslims should unite together against the satanic Zionists who have plotted to destroy us both by having us war against each other--9/11 and the attack on the USS LIBERTY being just two examples of these vile and murderous intrigues.
Tony Blizzard adds:
The number one lie that keeps many evangelicals of various stripes in the talmudic camp is their forever "relearned" belief that Jews are "God's chosen people."
Of course, these people can wear memory holes through certain phrases in the bible, especially the New Testament, but they have probably never even read the recorded history therein that the moment Christ died on the cross the curtain holding the Israelites Holy of Holies, where God was believed to dwell as His abode among those chosen ones, was torn asunder.
Naturally, Scofield has never written a single note on that happening because it was either the literal or the symbolic evidence, it doesn't matter which, that God, at that moment, LEFT those Israelites, and, as Christ preached, took up His abode in the heart of ever person on earth who obeys and edifies Him.
Obviously then, by any sort of logic, it is Christians and near Christians, people who do their best to do the bidding of God, summed up by Christ, first, in loving God, and then, in loving one's neighbor as one's self.
Therefore the "exception" of every sort of criminality and evil given these people by their supposedly Christian protectors is another lie from Satan. And it is the very same "exceptionalism" now of the neocon United States of Israhell; every bit as evil. These people, who love to sing "God bless America," are the same people who shout at the top of their lungs to "kill all them rag heads." Like talmudists, they are patently insane and have turned this nation into another camp of the devil.
