My heart has been heavily burdened over the tragedy that happened this weekend in the Chabad service in California.
The reality has hit me that there is truly now no “sanctuary or safety” in America for the people God calls “His chosen.” Jews becoming targets even as they worship is something I read about in endless hours of research I have done on the era of the Holocaust, but I never dreamed I would see in our generation here in a land of promised freedom.
A COMMENTARY ON THE SAN DIEGO SHOOTING:
WHAT ROLE DID "CHRISTIANITY' PLAY?
(NASHVILLE, TN) –April 29, 2019—A major national voice in the war on anti-Semitism is today calling on the Christian community to examine the role of Christianity in the aftermath of the Saturday loss of life at the Jewish Chabad in California.
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and President of Christian pro-Israel organization, Proclaiming Justice to The Nations, today issued a statement in response to facts emerging.
“As the leader of a Christian organization dedicated to the global welfare and protection of the Jewish people against the alarming worldwide surge of anti-Semitism, I am both saddened and outraged by the attack and loss of life this weekend within the walls of the Jewish Chabad in Poway, California. I am as well deeply concerned with the reports the seeming role Christian Nationalism played in motivating the alleged shooter in this senseless attack. We must lay the responsibility in great part on the failure of Christianity to teach against the anti-Semitic heresy of replacement theology. For centuries this false doctrine has been used to ignite violence against Jews. It happened in the pogroms, the Inquisition, the Holocaust—and apparently in Poway, California this weekend. This same evil energy focused toward the Jews propelled Hitler’s ‘brown shirt’ brigade and it reportedly propelled this weekend’s shooter to quote scripture as a motivation to kill Jews.”
Now in this season of Passover, the Jewish people have entered the time of “counting the omer,” the 49 days between Passover and Pentecost (Shavuot) in which the barley crop matures, as told in the Book of Leviticus. During these days, PJTN is “counting the Omar” in a much different way. We continue to count the anti-Semitic lies and media flashpoints she generates daily. Just today came the tweet from her that Jesus was a Palestinian. Really?
Once again, Omar continues her repeated attempts to delegitimize Jews and their biblical connection to the Land and people of Israel. Simply put - it’s another anti-Semitic dog whistle she can blow. For people who have no knowledge of the Bible or the history of the Jews, making Jesus a Palestinian creates a whole new history for Palestine that doesn’t exist. This myth about Jesus’ heritage began in our lifetime under the highly charged anti-Semitic reign of PLO leader Yasser Arafat who hated the Jews and devised this untruth that if the same Jewish people who “killed Jesus” were also robbing his Palestinian people of their rightful land, how much more hatred could be incited?
We will continue to proclaim justice to uphold biblical truth.
Like King David did centuries ago when he was facing a formidable foe, PJTN will continue to run into the battle to confront the enemy head-on. Dare we ask how close to the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR were the ties of the Islamists who massacred over 300 Christians this past weekend inside their churches? These Islamic organizations are groups to whom Omar has devoted significant time and whose “positive PR” she wishes to further in our country as evidenced by her regular fundraising efforts for them—and their donations to her—as a sitting member of Congress. Omar said it best: “Follow the Benjamin’s”. She must be judged by the company she keeps.
Where is the outrage? PJTN has stood at the forefront of media in sounding the battle cry on her patently illegal active support for an organization that has been declared a “terrorist group” (CAIR) and has proven ties with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Not only is radical Islam dedicated to the destruction of Israel, but our cherished Judeo-Christian values in the U.S. —and as proven by the horrendous attack of this weekend—the personal destruction of Christians and Jews alike.
Where was Omar’s tweet on this? Only the crickets were chirping. Obviously, it was just another disaster where “some people did something”.
PJTN stands front and center in creating a petition demanding removal of Ilhan Omar from Congress, and has included her “posse” of cronies in Congress who parrot and defend her agenda and endorse her anti-Semitic lies--Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib. An unholy triumvirate in Congress. While pledging to support and defend our country and our Constitution, they are undermining it before our very eyes. Defeating terrorism requires facing the facts on who’s defending it and why.
Now at the time of “counting the omer,” please prayerfully be aware and educated on the subversive threats America is facing. In the work of PJTN, I am reminded of the biblical principles governing warfare spoken by Moses in Deuteronomy 20:1- 4
“When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the Lord your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. 2 So it shall be, when you are on the verge of battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people. 3 And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; 4 for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.'"
This is a just cause, and we have the God of Israel with us!
President/Proclaiming Justice to The Nations
At a time when Christians and Jews have been focused on a period of the joyous celebration of their faith, the world has once again been struck with news of the dangerous, tragic times, in which we live.
The horrific bombing that took place in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, taking the lives of more than 300 people and injuring another 500, is now being attributed by national sources within Sri Lanka to the Islamist militant group, Thowfeek Jamaath. They are suspected of having ties to international assistance from other radical Muslim sources in carrying out this massacre. The vast majority of those lost were Christian worshippers gathered in three churches for Easter worship when the bombs were detonated. As churches were imploding in flames, three more suicide bombers ignited blasts in three major hotels filled with tourists, locals and a heartbreaking number of children. Four Americans were among those whose lives were lost. This unthinkable act was attributed as “religious hatred” by the organization whose name, Thowfeek Jamaath, is literally translated “National Monotheism Organization”.
WAR ON ANTI-SEMITISM IN FLORIDA TEXTBOOKS
April 23, 2019 (Orlando, FL) Laurie Cardoza Moore, President and Founder of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) is in Orlando to call on the Orange County Schools Superintendent and School Board Members to launch a full and thorough investigation into the anti-Semitic content being used in Florida’s Pearson Publisher's Common Core - CPALMS curriculum. This anti-Semitic curriculum is being taught to students in area schools and promoting an anti-Semitic bias against Israel in general and Jews specifically.
The problematic assignment excerpts were taken from “A Balcony over the Fakihaniby” by Liyana Badr, a short story in the book of novellas titled A Land of Rock and Thyme. The assignment is part of Pearson Publisher's CPALMS Common Core Curriculum standards to prepare the 9th graders for the Florida Reading FSA on inference of cultural experiences. The source book and the story are fictional, but the excerpts are read as true biographical experiences.

A Passover Story from PJTN
What a tremendous blessing to join with so many of our PJTN friends around the world as we embrace the spiritual blessing of Passover and Holy Week. We look forward to this special time as it serves as an important reminder of God’s faithfulness in the darkest of times.
Daily, we must try to grapple with a fracturing world--one that willfully embraces anti-Semitism and anti-Christian bigotry.
As Jews all over the world these next few days bring to remembrance the story of Passover, they are charged to share this story now over 3,300 years old with their children. It’s a re-telling of God’s freeing of His Chosen People from Egypt and His miraculous preservation of these, His people, as the Angel of Death passed over. I am reminded in reflecting on Passover that in light of today’s new headlines, here centuries later, there is still an “Egypt” and still brave people who will set their course on God’s direction, and under His protection.
Just this week it was announced that Judea Pearl has formerly renounced his status as a distinguished alumnus of New York University. A recipient of the prestigious Turing Award in education and a graduate of NYU with a doctoral degree in engineering, Dr. Pearl’s decision came following the school’s decision to award its Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) organization with a special honor of recognition and distinction for “extraordinary and positive impact on the University community.”
With tens of thousands of signatures gathered on our petition demanding the removal of Ilhan Omar from Congress, PJTN is now adding the names of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib to our “recall from Congress” mandate. Daily, it becomes more and more obvious that this trio is working in unison to achieve one and the same goal: To diminish both Israel and the very America they were elected to defend and protect.
EVANGELICAL LEADER BLASTS “AOC” FOR TRIVIALIZING THE MEMORY OF THE HOLOCAUST TO DEFEND ANTI-SEMITE ILHAN OMAR
EVANGELICAL LEADER BLASTS “AOC” FOR TRIVIALIZING THE MEMORY OF THE HOLOCAUST TO DEFEND ANTI-SEMITE ILHAN OMAR
LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE: “OCASIO-CORTEZ IS A DISGRACE TO LATINOS, A DISGRACE TO WOMEN AND A DISGRACE TO AMERICA”
Nashville, TN (4/15/2019) -- Evangelical leader Laurie Cardoza-Moore has called out the ill-informed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for trivializing the memory of the Holocaust by tweeting a statement by Pastor Martin Niemöller in defense of the anti-Semite and Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group collaborator, Ilhan Omar.
The statement AOC quoted was written by Niemöller who lived under the Nazi regime and used his influence to defend the innocent victims of his government. In contrast, Ilhan Omar is a collaborator of the Muslim Brotherhood which historically supported the Nazis then, and is aggressively seeking the destruction of Israel and America now.
Once again this week Ilhan Omar is caught in the crosshairs of her own making by inciting hatred and total division onto the American landscape.
While addressing a recent conference of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist front group, the Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR) video has surfaced of Omar's remarks made at the private event in Los Angeles. She is captured at the event stating:
“Here’s the truth: for far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being second class citizens, And frankly, I am tired of it and every single Muslim in the country should be tired of it.” She went on to tell her audience: "CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” After these remarks, she turned her attention to President Trump and what she termed “ his long term campaign of hatred against Muslims.”
“Some people did something?”
