Anti-Jewish Works Sold by British-Israel!
I totally agree with your comments about the British - Israel - World Federation flirting with Anti-Semitism. I was invited by them to speak at their National Congress in Lancaster some 12/13 years ago. They were aware of my Jewish Ashkenazi descent through my English mother, as I had made it known to them. Yet at the end of my talk, their then president put me on the spot by suggesting to the audience that I would be willing to answer questions from the floor. I hesitated at first because this had not been agreed beforehand. However, as he had put me on the spot I agreed. A guy in the front row, who I suspect had been primed beforehand, then asked me what I thought about the Scripture in the Book of Revelation 2:9, which says:
"I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan."
To be honest, the question left me flummoxed for an answer, which of course was the whole idea in the first place. After all this time I cannot quite remember what my answer was, but it clearly did not satisfy my questioner.. Whatever the case, he would not leave it alone and the man in front kept up the pressure on me in order to cause maximum embarrassment.
Then Mr M., the then Secretary of the organisation, stood up at the back and point blank put the same question to me and demanded an answer. For me that was the final straw and I let them have it with both barrels in righteous anger.
I started out by referring to the early history of the BIWF movement and how it was blessed by God with over 2 million member, several teaching colleges and offices throughout the British Commonwealth and its influence was growing year by year, with the approbation of the political hierarchy and even of royalty. All was well until they took up with a book by Arthur Koestler called THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE, in which he advanced the thesis that Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the ancient Israelites, but from the Khazars, a Turkic people. I went on to say, that the moment you took on this message that the Ashkenazi Jews may not be Jews at all, you gave it a your own evil twist by proclaiming to all and sundry that those Ashkenazi Jews are impostors and counterfeits who are masquerading as Jews, when in fact they are wicked and evil Edomites, who are responsible for all the evils and abominations in the world. Athur Koestler's book came out in 1976, you took its message and turned into pure poison, the Spirit of God, much like the Pillar of Cloud departed from your organization, as it cannot abide with the Spirit of Anti-Semitism. You then adopted [books] so utterly vile that even Joseph Goebels and Adolph Hitler would have loved [them] for their favourite bedside reading. Soon after this you lost your prestigious London H.Q. in Buckingham Gate near the royal palace, and were forced to move it to a suburban back water of London, and then later on, after your membership had suffered a near terminal decline, your were forced to close your colleges and move your premises out of London to the North of England. Here you are today a mere shadow of your former self, when at your national Congress you can barely raise a 100 delegates! The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob has surely placed your once great organization under a curse and unless you repent your organisation will wither and die."
The whole audience was left utterly stunned and with this I abruptly left the stage. It seems nothing much has changed, as the books by arch anti-Semites and Jew hating racists are still available in their Covenant Publishing catalogue and the poison has gone into the actual bloodstream of this organization. BIWF boast in their literature that they are a people of the Covenant, yet they are no such thing, as the Covenant God made with His chosen nation at Mount Sinai required observance of the Ten Commandments. ...
May God bless you Yair for the good work you are doing!
