Jewish Jealousy Juxtaposes NYT’s Nefarious Anti-Semitic Answer!”
Ramesh C. Reddy
A guide dog with a Star of
David collar leads a blind human wearing a Yamaka. If this image was
about a blind man and his guide dog, people would have seen it as a
religious blind person and his guide dog representing their faith
through the symbolism of the Star of David and Yamaka. Despicably,
that was not the case. The New York Times (NYT) could not
stop itself to show its hatred towards the leaders of the Jewish
State of Israel and the United States of America when it published
an anti-Semitic cartoon.
The guide dog on the leash,
which had the Star of David collar, had the face of Israel’s Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leading the U.S President Donald Trump
who was depicted as being blind and wearing a Yamaka.
By just looking at the cartoon in the
International edition of the NYT, you can imagine the hatred the
cartoon illustrator and editor have towards America being a friend
of Israel. In essence, what the illustrator is trying to convey is
that the Jewish PM is in control of guiding the supposed Christian
leader of the free world to go where taken. This is far from the
gives the impression that President Trump is blind in his support of
Israel and just following what Prime Minister Netanyahu wants. On
the contrary, President Trump’s policies towards Israel may have
nothing to do with Prime Minister Netanyahu but everything to do
with what Evangelical Christians believe in their support of Israel.
Trump does not need to be led by Netanyahu because he leads based on
what the Bible says regarding the blessing, love, and protection of
Israel and the Jewish people:
will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you; and
the entire world will be blessed because of you.” (Genesis 12:1-2,
for the peace of Jerusalem. May all who love this city
prosper. O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls and
prosperity in your palaces. This I ask for the sake of all my
brothers and my friends who live here; and may there be peace as a
protection to the Temple of the Lord.” (Psalm 122:6-9, TLB)
I have set intercessors on your walls who shall cry to God all day
and all night for the fulfillment of his promises. Take no rest, all
you who pray, and give God no rest until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her respected and admired throughout the earth.”
(Isaiah 62:6-7, TLB)
Those who bless, love, and
pray for Israel will always prosper so it is wonderful we have a
president who is truly for Israel by his actions and policies
especially moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
me truly happy that the entire world will be blessed because of
God’s covenant with Abraham and those who love Jerusalem will
prosper. Praise the Lord! It will make me happier on the day that
Israel will be respected and admired throughout the earth.
It is papers like the NYT and
Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan
including the anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan that continue to spread
anti-Semitism and hatred towards the Jews and the State of Israel.
They are the ones that are
implicitly responsible for the attacks on Jewish worshipers in the
synagogues of Pittsburgh and San Diego within the past six months.
Sadly, they wanted to portray Trump as the anti-Semite.
It is time that the Jewish
people and Evangelical Christians take a stand and boycott the NYT.
My prayer is that the Jewish people will realize that President
Trump is their friend and not their enemy just as Prime Minister
Netanyahu is a friend of Christians and not their enemy when 2020
presidential elections come.
is the outrage and outcry against the NYT from the politicians,
especially the Democrats who pride themselves on being anti-bigoted
and loving all people?
To this hour, I have not read
one Democratic presidential candidate blasting the NYT.
Is it because they
want their endorsement during the presidential election of 2020?
Speak out against
anti-Semitism because the next attack against any Jewish person will
still rest in the despicable act of the NYT.
It is utterly
shocking to see this type of cartoon illustrated and published to be
used as fodder for some of Israel’s enemies that surround her. This
cartoon definitely was trying to illicit hatred towards Jews,
Israel, Netanyahu, and Trump for me. It is time to stop.
Has the NYT forgotten what
happened six months ago in Pittsburgh on Oct 27, 2018 at the Tree of
Eleven Jews were gunned down
while they were worshiping Jehovah Jireh!
Less than one week later, my
precious wife Chandraleela was asked to lead worship at Catalyst
small group of Oakland International Fellowship. Remembering what
happened to her Jewish brothers and sisters, she got very emotional
while she shared about why she chose, “I will follow” by
She shared about questioning
Jehovah on why he allowed the gunman to take the lives of the 11
Jews while they were there to worship Jehovah in the Tree of Life
synagogue. It was during that questioning process she felt that she
wanted Catalyst to sing ‘I will follow” despite the pain and sorrow.
As Evangelical Christians, we
love the State of Israel and the Jewish people. As much as we want
to visit Israel one day with our church, we have been blessed to
live in a predominately Jewish community until that time.
My wife loves to share about
the love of Christ to those she meets whether they are seen as Jew
It is into this community,
Satan the father of lies deceived Robert Bowers with his lies so
that he could massacre the 11 Jews at the Tree of Life just as Satan
tempted Adam and Eve to eat fruit from the Tree of Conscience to go
against Jehovah their God.
From the beginning of time,
Satan has been trying to destroy the Jewish people because of his
hatred towards Jesus, the Messiah. This same hatred he has spread to
people like Haman, Adolph Hitler, Robert Bowers, Louis Farrakhan,
etc so that they may become anti-Semitic with their hatred of the
Jews. But overall just as the State of Israel has always been
protected by the Lord though surrounded by its enemies, Jewish
communities will prevail so that one day they will come to know
Yeshua, their Messiah.
Haman tried to destroy the Jews, a woman named Hadassah took it upon
herself with the help of her uncle Mordecai, to stop Haman. Hadassah
was obedient to the Lord when her uncle shared with her from
Esther 4:13-14 which says,
“Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of
the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief
and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you
and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you
have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
Through the prayer of
Hadassah and the Jews, the Jewish people prevailed. If you are
wondering who Hadassah was, she was Queen Esther. We named our first
born daughter Esther from the Bible.
When Adolph Hitler and his
Nazis destroyed more than 6 million Jews in the Holocaust, Satan
still could not destroy the Jews with his hatred because through the
Lord’s help, they rose mightier. Through this heinous tragedy, the
State of Israel was born. Thank you Jesus!
The State of Israel and the
Jewish people will be resilient because the Lord will make it
happen. No anti-Semitism from the likes of the NYT or U.S Reps Omar
and Tlaib can stop that. It amazes me how Israel is protected while
being surrounded by certain hostile nations bordering them. Thank
Let us take a strong stand against anti-Semitism wherever it rises
from especially speaking out against journalism that influences
people against the Jewish people!
In all this let us not forget the words of
Jesus Christ from Luke 6:27-28 which
all of you. Love your enemies. Do good to
those who hate you.
Pray for the happiness of those who curse you;
implore God’s blessing on those who hurt you."
