I spoke yesterday at a Christian women’s meeting in California and shared how we at PJTN are bracing for persecution in “speaking out” against anti-Semitism in the days ahead. A frightening reality is emerging in American Christianity and is being underscored by the perpetrators of violence and hatred against Jews that have resulted in national headlines such as the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh last November and the Chabad tragedy in Poway, California last month. Just last week in Russellville, Arkansas a peaceful Holocaust memorial event made national headlines when it was disrupted by protesters bearing Christian flags, a large sign with an image of the face of Jesus, and a huge placard reading ‘God has the oven pre-heated.’ Scenes reserved for historical research into Nazi Germany of the past are now becoming the too frequent norm in America, and Christian leadership must speak up against this new vile pattern of hatred we see growing around us. In both Pittsburgh and California, violence was initiated by young men professing to be Christian but were intent on killing in their words, “as many Jews as possible.” In the case of the Poway shooter, he had noted in a social media manifesto: “I am a Christian and I blame all Jews for the murder of Jesus.”
PJTN LEADER CALLS FOR REMOVAL OF TENNESSEE JUDGE OVER ANTI-SEMITIC POSTS
(NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE) –May 10, 2019 –PJTN Founder and President Laurie Cardoza-Moore has filed a formal letter to the Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct demanding the removal of Shelby County Criminal Court Judge James Lammey, in light of recent public revelations of inflammatory anti-Semitic content posts on his personal Facebook. Particularly under scrutiny was a link shared by the Memphis based judge to an incendiary anti-Semitic article authored by radical Holocaust denier David Cole.
Noted Cardoza-Moore: “As the founder of a Tennessee based Christian organization leading a national campaign against anti-Semitism, I find it egregious that a sitting criminal court judge would commit such a breach of conduct, and this at a time when America is facing the recent horror of 12 Jewish lives being lost to terrorism within the perceived safety of their own synagogues. That we have such anti-Semitic hatred in mis-guided radical minds intent on the process of killing Jews is something America must not tolerate. To have a judge committed to the process of justice and the punishment of criminal acts at the same time entertaining and sharing radical anti-Semitic content in the public forum of his own sphere of influence in social media demands his immediate removal.”
PJTN this week has joined the chorus of supportive voices around the world in wishing Israel God’s blessing on the celebration of its 71st Independence Day marked from the miracle of its re-emergence as a nation in 1948. It has been a hard fought miracle watered by many tears. On Tuesday of this week, the citizens of Israel and Jews of the Diaspora alike observed Memorial Day, as a day to remember the price that has been paid. A siren was heard around the nation to remember the 23,741 fallen soldiers; the 3,460 Jewish lives lost to terrorism—and this year tragically—the twelve Jewish lives lost here in America in murderous anti-Semitic attacks in both the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA and the Chabad in Poway, CA.
As Memorial Day in Jerusalem dawned, I was in Washington for a rally on Capitol Hill to voice our stand against anti-Semitism in our generation.
I stopped to remember and to pledge that PJTN must—and will—do more.
Peace comes at a great price. Please join PJTN today in praying for Israel.
Once again in the world, as through the centuries, the Jewish people find themselves with no “safe haven” from the rage of anti-Semitism.
In America, gunshots threaten our Jewish brethren in synagogues as they gather to pray. In Israel, a barrage of over 700 rockets rained down this weekend from Gaza, destroying lives, homes and any hope of lasting peace.
Many friends across America—both Christians and Jews, have been in touch with me over the past few days to express their concerns and fears over what we see unfolding. I could only re-assure them that PJTN stands as an anchor in this unrelenting storm.
PJTN FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE TO BE A FEATURED SPEAKER AT JEXIT RALLY EVENT IN WASHINGTON DC MAY 7
(NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE) –May 3, 2019 –Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) Founder and President, Laurie Cardoza-Moore has been added to the list of guest speakers to be featured at the national JEXIT Rally being staged next Tuesday, May 7 between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM on the grounds of the US Capitol in Washington, DC.
Being termed by organizers as a “unifying show of solidarity between Jews, Christians and minorities,” JEXIT has encouraged a call for censure and exit of the Democrat party over concerns of anti-Semitism, increased policy attacks on Jews. Christians and minorities, and policy disputes that include HR-183 and a national call for the removal of Ilhan Omar from Congress.
Being termed “A Date of Change,” JEXIT founders noted that, as seen in recent headlines, anti-Semitism is rising in the U.S. at such an alarming rate, the urgent need for change must be heard in Washington, DC.
With the rise of global anti-Semitism, and the anti-Semitic and anti-Christian attacks around the world, I am being inundated with requests from Christians and Jews around the world who are interested in starting a PJTN Chapter in their community to confront this threat.
Whether it's anti-Semitism and anti-Christian bigotry in textbooks, anti-Semitic attacks on K-12 and higher ed campuses, or the violent anti-Semitic attacks in our communities, I will discuss the effective PJTN initiatives we've launched in Tennessee and Ohio. Additionally, we will discuss the establishment of our new PJTN Chapters in South Africa, Florida, Michigan, Texas and Arizona.
THE SILENCE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES IS JUST AS UNETHICAL AS THEIR ANTI-SEMITIC EDITOR
LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE: “AS WE MARK YOM HASHOAH – THE NEW YORK TIMES CONTINUES TO EMPLOY AN ANTI-SEMITIC ‘UNETHICAL’ EDITOR THAT APPROVED THE ‘DER STÜRMER’ STYLE CARTOONS”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (5/2/2019) Laurie Cardoza-Moore, evangelical media veteran and show host of the award-winning television program Focus On Israel, condemned the New York Times for its blatant anti-Semitic cartoons. She is now calling on her media colleagues and all people of conscience to keep up the pressure and demand that the paper fire the editor responsible for the Nazi like propaganda.
One of the cartoons published depicted President Trump as a blind man sporting a black Yarmulke being led by a dog with the face of Prime Minister Netanyahu wearing a Star of David dog collar. The second shows Netanyahu dressed as Moses holding up a blank stone tablet with the Israeli flag on it. The New York Times has claimed to have fired the syndicate that provided them, but has yet to identify or reprimand the editor who approved the publication of the offensive cartoons.
"Because they hated knowledge and did not chose the fear of the L-rd." Proverbs 1:29
The “true colors” of the New York Times are shining right through the black and white on their pages.
In the same window of time as the San Diego Chabad shooting, what we’ve just witnessed with shock here in America is the publication of anti-Semitism of the highest order in the form of not one—but two—vilely vivid hate cartoons that provoked not political humor, but national and international outrage. With this choice of content to publish, the NYT has made an egregious descent into the dark realm reserved for the official newsstand trumpet for everything anti-Semitic during the Holocaust era – Der Stürmer. Easy to visualize NYT subscribers A. Hitler and J. Goebbels sharing a wicked laugh at this “humor” over their morning coffee.
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.”
