Mark Armstrong Moans About "Uncivilized Third-World Teenagers" after the School Massacre in Florida

Mark Armstrong, leader of the Intercontinental Church of God, grandson of HWA, has released another weekly update. (February 16, 2018.) This update was written following the massacre at Majority Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida in which seventeen innocent people were murdered on February 14, 2018.

Mark Armstrong mentions the massacre in Florida. He then very quickly moves on to complaining about people in the media advocating for reforming laws concerning gun control to make these sort of massacres less likely to occur.
Greetings from Tyler, 
There's only one story this week, and you know what that is. All other news is either not happening or unimportant as the media obsesses, hour after hour, day after day. Most mainstream outlets are outraged that gun control, which they imply could have prevented the Florida school massacre, hasn't been enacted into law despite the Second Amendment of the Constitution. One commentator called it the Constitutional Suicide Pact.
He then states that dozens knew the perpetrator "was out of control."
As the nation mourns the senseless killings of innocent students and faculty in Broward County, the press conferences, the interviews with witnesses and students have made one thing has become abundantly clear.  Dozens of people knew this kid, Nicholas de Jesus Cruz, was out of control.  He was brandishing weapons, wearing masks, talking “Allahu Akbar” all over social media.  He'd even expressed his intention to be a “professional school shooter,” and the F. B. I. had been notified!  But they weren't sure they had the identity nailed down, so….  One girl, a student at the high school, said she “actually knew the shooter” because she'd been a friend of his half-brother who said he sat in his room practicing loading magazines into rifles, working the actions, dry-firing guns all the time.  The noise coming from his room was constant.  Everybody who knew this kid, or knew of him, knew he was a danger. 
It seems to me that Mark Armstrong gets awfully close to blaming the victims in the passage above.

He states that the perpetrator was known to the authorities.
Now we hear the F. B. I. was notified a second time, with no confusion about the little freak's identity or his location, and still did nothing.  Local Police had been called to his home dozens of times in recent years.  The kid was a local legend, and all said he was “a little off.” 
He complains that so many people concerned about this topic are focusing on the guns.
Progressives scoff at the idea of armed security at schools.  Why, that would turn schools into “armed camps,” and then, who knows how bad things could get?  No, clearly in the minds of concerned anchors and commentators everywhere, the problem is GUN violence.  
If it is not about guns then what is this massacre about for Mark Armstrong?

While so many are in mourning and are distressed by this dreadful massacre Mark Armstrong decides it is time to complain that white men are getting picked on. He also complains that his preferred president is getting blamed for the massacre somehow.
CNN decided they'd impose a rule at long last, no more mention of the names of mass murderers.  How convenient!  They sure didn't mind the name Steven Paddock when it came to the Las Vegas massacre.  He was a middle aged white guy, and they couldn't say his name or display his likeness often enough.  But the Hispanic kid, expelled from school, full of hatred, cavorting around brandishing guns and knives on social media bragging that he wanted to shoot people, it just wouldn't be wise to mention his name.  Besides, it's not about him, it's about “common sense gun safety,” and the fact that the Trump administration has allowed, if not caused this massacre.  That's their angle, and their sticking to it.
He also uses this massacre to moan about the ongoing investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal and makes the hysterical accusation that the investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal somehow caused the FBI to ignore warnings about the perpetrator. What an outlandish claim to make.
If the F. B. I. hadn't committed untold manpower to obtaining fraudulent warrants, conducting surveillance of Hillary's political rivals, chasing “the Russians” who supposedly “colluded” with Trump, they might have had time to check in on this hateful little killer before he acted.  But they obviously had much more important things to investigate.  There was no time to waste on the Hispanic kid who was all over social media, haunting Islamic fighter web sites, issuing threats expressing his desire to murder people.  No.  They had an administration to frame!  They've been busy issuing “anonymous government official” leaks to the media.  We're finding out, little by little, drip by drip, that they've been behind the nightly “leaks” propelling the dialogue of Trump/Russia collusion for over a year.
He then muses that some in the FBI have been leaking information damaging to his preferred president. He states that he hopes that they are afraid. He boasts that they are being fired or otherwise marginalized.
One can only imagine the glee with which these “anonymous government officials” must have experienced as they watched their disinformation, designed to prompt suspicion of “treason” play out over every network day after day, month after month for over a year and a half.  Now we're beginning to learn some of their names, and some of their former positions.  Many have resigned, been fired, or re-assigned to lowly posts.  Presumably, they're not sleeping quite as well as they were after they watched their own “leaks” of inside information play out on screens all over the world for so long.
He finds it convenient to denigrate the FBI to discredit their investigation concerning his preferred president. Now he uses the revelation about the FBI's mishandling of warnings about the perpetrator to further denigrate them.
They say we have to maintain confidence and trust in the hard-working men and women who put their lives on the line to keep America safe.  But they couldn't possibly look more inept, or corrupt.  The explanation for why the F. B. I. couldn't follow up after being contacted by a bail bondsman who contacted them after he received the message over YouTube, the killer saying he wanted to be a professional school shooter?  Agents went and interviewed the bail bondsman who got the message, and then…  And then we get excuses, they couldn't be sure of the identity.  And then, they looked no further.  They dropped it.  This is one of the vaunted “field offices,” you know, where they risk their lives every day to protect Americans. 
While so many are in distress Mark Armstrong chooses to lambast schools as indoctrination centers for the left and as being filled with "uncivilized third-world teenagers." Teachers were murdered and yet here he says that teachers are saying "that America is an evil entity, founded on racism and white supremacy." The more inflammatory rhetoric is highlighted below.
Here's the news.  America's schools are already brimming with uncivilized third-world teenagers, many of whom will never master the English language.  Teachers, largely, teach that America is an evil entity, founded on racism and white supremacy.  They pound every leftist doctrine into their heads, ignoring or punishing every hint of dissent.  The “dreamers” are committing crimes and making babies like they're going out of style.  Some are in graduate school, earning their PhD’s we're told, but that's not the common denominator by any means.  Does nobody see the documentaries, the true stories showing what life is like south of the Border, and south of there?  Is there no realization that the planet earth is brimming with human beings who have no education, no empathy, no respect for human suffering and no respect for life, period?
It's not about the guns for Mark Armstrong. It's about America becoming less white.
Do we want our grandkids in an insecure school, teaming with third-world specimens without conscience, weaned on the injustices of “white privilege,” demanding that the wealth be redistributed?!?  Take a look at the Florida school, and those nearby, wherever you may be.  Fundamental transformation has already arrived.  Imagine what it looks like ten years hence, when the “dreamers” and the “unaccompanied minors” have all produced seven or eight offspring just like them.  Careful, you might be a racist!

Amazingly he gives little thought about the victims or about how to prevent such massacres from occurring again. Instead he indulges in his regular partisan attacks and xenophobic tirades similar to just about every other one of his bizarre weekly updates. America mourns and yet he complains that some people might think he is racist. What a morally bankrupt response to the catastrophe in Florida.

And just imagine. There are some people out there who send money to this man's organization.

Another Mark Armstrong Update

Mark Armstrong has released yet another weekly update. (February 9, 2018.) Let's see what he has to say this time.

He intones that an ideological civil war is underway in the United States.
Aside from some suspicious unsolved murders, and the gang mayhem that's spread across America, no shots have been fired.  But there is an ideological civil war in progress.  It's ugly and it seems to have permeated nearly everything.  It has certainly tainted what passes for news.  Blessedly, we have a wide variety of informational sources.  If mainstream outlets still had a monopoly on the selection and distribution of information, we'd be even further down the path of authoritarian bans and mandates than we are.
He complains that some view the "make America great again" slogan in a negative way.
Some are excited, and some are repulsed at the prospect of any actual progress toward making America great again.  All mainstream outlets call that slogan and the philosophy behind it racist, hateful, bigoted and many of the commentators pretty much lose all pretense of professionalism during any discussion. 
He then complains that during a recent trip he saw so many people who did not speak English even though he lives in a state, namely Texas, that happens to be located next to Mexico.
But the realization is setting in.  It's not a question of great again, but whether the United States can be saved from the transformation we've already undergone.  My immediate family and I went on a road trip this week for a few days of skiing.  Most everywhere we stopped along the way, every gas station, mini-market, truck stop, and restaurant brought the realization that we are already outnumbered by people who don't even speak English.  It may not be true statistically, yet, but any calculation of future child-bearing proclivities would make it abundantly clear that regular Americans are on a glide path to third-world blight.  Call the observation racist or whatever, the reality cannot be more than one generation from now, if that. 
He scare mongers that if Clinton had won the election "this unique experiment" would have been ended "forever."
We're beginning to find out just how close we came to losing this country to corruption at the highest levels.  If the rigging of the most powerful agencies had succeeded, and their first woman president had been elected, none of the bombshells now exploding would ever have gone off.  James Comey would still head the F. B. I.  Loretta Lynch would still be the Attorney General.  The Justice Department and the IRS would still be targeting political opponents for harassment and prosecution.  And that would have been the end of this unique experiment, forever. 
He complains that the budget adds more debt and essentailly blames the other party which he does not like.
After much hand-wringing and grandstanding, Congress managed to pass a two-year budget that plunges the U. S. into another couple of trillion in debt.  Our government is still spending like a drunken sailor, with none of the reforms of waste and graft having been addressed.  It's the reality of an adversarial situation in government where “compromise” with the vast bureaucracy and socialist juggernaut has become necessary in order to just fund the American military.  When it comes right down to it, even the radicals know there'd be nothing for them to steal, and nobody left for them to berate without the protection of the military, hate it as they do.
Even though Saudi Arabia spends about seven times as much money on military expenditure then Iran and that it is widely believed that the State of Israel has nuclear weapons he scare mongers about Iran.
Funny, how what we knew to be true on its face ends up being confirmed a year or two after the fact.  You remember the shrink-wrapped pallets of currency Obama sent to Tehran as part of the “Iran deal?”  It's been tracked down and documented that much of it was apportioned out to Hezbollah and to the terrorist movement that's made Yemen more uninhabitable than it already was.  Iran has strengthened its hand in Iraq, in Syria, Lebanon, is financing the war in Yemen and threatening Saudi Arabia.  It could very well become an acknowledged nuclear power in the blink of an eye.
He mentions that Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea and the participation of North Koreans in it. He mockingly refers to Kin Jong-un as "the little fat boy" seemingly unconcerned about possibly exacerbating the situation or of indulging himself in fat shaming.
Everyone is heartened that North Korea has sent delegations, a few competitors and even Kim Jong-un’s sister to the Winter Olympics in South Korea.  At least it bodes well that we don't expect a war for at least the next couple of weeks.  Maybe the confrontational posture toward the little fat boy wasn't such a lunatic play after all.  But the longer term is far from certain.
He then takes solace in the thought that his version of the Armstrongite God is far greater then anyone outside he does not approve of.
There's no denying, we've seen some evidence of miracles in our own lives and in the bigger picture in the very recent past.  God's Hand has been apparent in developments no-one could have predicted or would have believed if anybody had.  His power is way beyond all of our concerns, and that's where they need to be taken.  The odds were much worse than they are now, and we've been short on faith.  This Sabbath would be a great time to turn it all over to Him.  The bickering, the insults, the threats and dangers, all of it.  He's way ahead of us, and His will be done.  
He then mentions some statistics of his organization's attempts to reach out to new people to gain new recruits.
P. S.  Here's a brief rundown of recent advertising results via the Internet, in round numbers. 
On the subject of Heaven and Hell, of 44,000 reached, over 4,500 followed our link. 
Clean and Unclean Meats                      6,000                         600 
Easter or the Passover                          19,000                      1,000 
Does God Allow Evil                            2,800                         300

Total reached                                       54,000                      6,300 
These percentages look promising, and we'll be increasing our output dramatically.
He then states that they are broadcasting TV programs.
We've also taken television time on the Retro and Family networks.  They are available on the digital antennas for local reception.  It just started, but we're already receiving some calls and early results look promising.
I pity anyone who gets intrigued about this organization through such broadcasts. It is to be hoped that they conclude that their time is better spent elsewhere.

PCG's Ron Fraser Predicting American Decline by 2011

Here is yet another pathetic prediction from a member of PCG's 1%. This dire prediction was made in 2001 and predicted that the United States of America would soon fall apart in less than ten years. By 2011 in other words.
The United States may well go down in history as the shortest-lived of the singular superpowers which have strutted this world’s stage since Babylon, the world’s first great empire. 
The U.S., which last January [2001] tipped over the edge and commenced its descent from a political economy of singular greatness, is destined to slide into second-rate power status. This process will not take a century. In all probability it will not even take a decade. (Ron Fraser, At The Crossroads, The Philadelphia Trumpet, May 2001.)
And still thousands of people continue to trust in an organization that makes such spectacularly failed prophecies. Since PCG's founding in 1989 its leaders have made at least 52 failed predictions. This is yet another.

PCG's Ron Fraser on Diplomacy in Colombia (2001)

Diplomacy does not appear to be so highly prized among PCG's 1% as may be seen in these passages from an article by PCG's Ron Fraser from 2001 discussing attempts by the Colombian government to negotiate with the main leftist insurgent group operating in the nation, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), which had been waging an armed insurgency against the government since 1964. Fraser casually assumed the diplomacy would not work.
It was Margaret Thatcher who declared, “Never negotiate with a terrorist.” She knew that once a terrorist gained ground through receiving just one concession, he would stick to that gain like a limpet as a platform from which to gain more concessions. This is the vicious circle that enmeshes President Andrés Pastrana. It’s the same vortex into which those who have made concessions to Irish, Palestinian and Albanian terrorists now find themselves sucked. ... 
So! We have yet another “peace process” involving negotiations between a legitimate national government and an illegitimate group of terrorists. Yet again, the U.S. is the largest foreign dollar and military equipment contributor to one side. The U.S. administration is the prime supplier of intelligence, military training and advice to the national government of Colombia. Yet again, political forces are arrayed against the U.S., this time to take advantage of its absence at the bargaining table and position themselves to lay the blame for any failure of the process on American shoulders. Will the Colombian peace process turn into a mini-Vietnam for the U.S.? Another American folly? 
Chances are that unless Americans learn to deal with cause rather than effect, their continuing efforts at dealing with the insidious effects of narco-trafficking are doomed to failure. (Ron Fraser, America's Colombian Folly, May 2001.)
On November 24, 2016 the Colombian government and the FARC signed a peace agreement and as part of the peace deal the FARC disbanded as an armed force on June 27, 2017 and reorganized itself as a political party, the Common Alternative Revolutionary Force.

Contrary to Fraser's harsh pessimism peace was made with the FARC. This is yet another failed prediction that PCG's leaders have made over the years.

PCG's Ron Fraser Dismissed Condoleeza Rice as Having a "Liberal Ethos" (2001)

PCG's Ron Fraser was not pleased with Condoleeza Rice being appointed as National Security Adviser upon the assumption of power by George W. Bush.
In a destabilized world, foreign policy is played out often at high risk against heavy odds. Rumor has it that the president’s foreign-policy advisers are divided. ... presidential adviser on foreign policy Condoleeza Rice exhibits a certain liberal ethos in her views. Such a mix of minds may well provide a confusion of views that will frustrate decision-making for the new president. ... 
A weak-willed U.S. approach to maintaining order in the Balkan Peninsula allowed civil war in Macedonia to spark. This will only serve to influence a policy of U.S. disengagement from the Balkans. Condoleeza Rice virtually promised a U.S. troop withdrawal from Yugoslavia as part of President Bush’s electoral platform. ... 
Following the Rice philosophy, the Bush administration has accepted a basically hands-off policy on Balkan, Mideast and Irish affairs—all the subject of intense, if inept, diplomatic activity under the previous administration. Someone had to fill the vacuum. Guess who? The EU slipped in quickly to seize the advantage and is speedily taking over the Middle East peace process, while the Germans are coming out from under the table to take the lead in the Balkans.... (Ron Fraser, At The Crossroads, May 2001.)

Mark Armstrong on #ReleaseTheMemo

Mark Armstrong, leader of the Intercontinental Church of God, has released another one of his weekly updates (February 2, 2018). Let's see what he has to say. This week he insists that Robert Mueller's investigation is merely part of some sort of grand conspiracy involving leaders of the FBI and the mainstream media to attack his preferred president, Donald John Trump.

He begins by claiming a time of "mass deception" will occur before Christ's return.
The Bible tells of a period of mass deception that will characterize the last days.  Many wonder, particularly in this Internet era where there's been an explosion of available information, how such a thing could be possible.  How on earth could the whole world, save the “very elect” be conned into accepting, and acting upon a false and fraudulent premise?     
He then begins to condemn the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Despite the disturbing evidence of possibly criminal behavior fueling the Republican Robert Mueller's investigation Mark Armstrong assures his followers that it is just part of a vast conspiracy by the FBI and the mainstream media to attack his preferred president.
Recent history provides one incredibly glaring example in Germany, but everybody freaks out whenever it's cited, because (the argument goes) there's simply nothing which justifies invoking the Nazis.  However, we are living through the exposure of fraud on the part of supposedly incorruptible institutions.  Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity, are on the F. B. I. institutional Seal, and are supposed to guarantee equal treatment under the law and blind justice.  That is a basic part of the foundation of a system that guarantees liberty in the United States of America.
He has turned his ire towards the FBI because they are running a criminal investigation about his preferred president. He also claims that Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election was miraculous.
If the “Untouchables” can defraud Federal Judges to spy on opponents and undermine an election of a duly elected President, then the whole thing collapses.  It went on wholesale in the Soviet Union and in the eastern bloc nations they controlled.   Their media reported as they were ordered.  People had to parrot government propaganda to survive.  It is chilling, to say the very least, to see how close we came to the same situation.  Imagine for a moment how things would have transpired if not for the shocking, miraculous outcome in the election of 2016.  The fraud would have succeeded.  The conspirators would still be running the most powerful institutions of law enforcement on earth.  The media would be backing them, deceiving the public without consequence instead of being exposed as they are today.  Not that they'll admit it, they never concede a point even when their face is rubbed in undeniable truth.
Mark Armstrong then accuses the mainstream media of being part of a conspiracy against President Trump.
And that may be as big a revelation as anything else we are learning.  The mainstream media was (and still is) part of the conspiracy!  False information was leaked to the media by the conspirators in charge of fearsome agencies, and then the reports they instigated were taken before a Judge to bolster the legitimacy of their need for surveillance.  It was a circular echo chamber, and the mainstream media has been a willing accomplice to perhaps the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on U. S. citizens, and by extension, the whole world.  Now it's exposed.
Mark Armstrong assures his readers that there is nothing to worry about concerning Robert Mueller's investigation.
Do you think for one minute that the media will recant its more than a year of fraudulent reports?  Not a chance.  Not yet anyway.  But they're being forced to play defense for a change.  The “heroes” they were counting on to impeach a president have been proven to be dirty.  They defrauded a secret court (FISA) to frame a candidate and a campaign.  No doubt they figured that even if the Russia Collusion thing didn't work out, they'd undoubtedly find some other criminal intent or activity if they were able to listen in on meetings, phone conversations, read e-mails and texts etc.  Surely, they'd get something scandalous or illegal.  But alas, they didn't.  They've only been able to charge a couple of “process crimes” (General Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort) that would never have existed had they not had the ability to eavesdrop, spy and then interrogate to find a discrepancy.  Then they brought the full weight of the threat of prison time to achieve a plea of guilty in exchange for cooperation.
Calls by the FBI and the Department of Justice to not release the memo is casually dismissed as part of the conspiracy to hide "criminality" from the public, namely his imagined grand conspiracy against his preferred president.
Sources and methods.  That, they tell us, is why the intelligence community has kept criminality at the highest levels concealed.  We found out years ago, when the reviled Snowden ruined his life by releasing massive amounts of data and had to flee the U. S. for Russia or wherever he is languishing.
He then veers off topic to allude to the issue of government surveillance in general. While that is certainly a topic worthy of public discussion here it is crassly used to inspire revulsion and disgust among his followers toward the alleged grand conspiracy against his preferred president.
It just wouldn't do if the public found out that anyone with a security clearance has access to the NSA database, which has apparently been stockpiling every communication, domestic and foreign, phone calls, e-mails and texts.  Apparently, anyone with Top Secret clearance, including the employees of contractors, can pull up everything on anybody.  The fact that there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of individuals who can abuse that capability is information that simply must not be public, even though it's the worst kept secret ever.  Therefore, much that should be known and released for public consumption must remain hidden.  Sources and methods must not be compromised!  Odd, nothing in today's release has anything to do with national security, even though that was used as the reason it should never see the light of day.
He then alludes to the Clinton emails which is actually another topic but again this is used to further inspire disgust and revulsion among his followers against the alleged grand conspiracy against his preferred president.
But here's the real kicker, and if you've paid close attention you may already have figured this out.  The reason Hillary Clinton HAD to be exonerated in the case of trafficking in classified information outside approved government systems is that the former President was communicating with her over her private server using an alias.  If she was found guilty, he would be too.  That may well be one of the places all this is headed.  He may have been aware, if not involved, in the perpetration of the whole scam.  Betcha we find out eventually.
Mark Armstrong then exults in the supposed humiliation of the "mainstream outlets" who he seem to view as part of the grand conspiracy against his preferred president.
The mainstream outlets can continue to play dumb, and probably will.  They've run out of confused, perplexed looks to get on their faces.  They spent weeks calling Trump crazy and a liar when he said his “wires were tapped.”  But they've wasted more than a year of their lives, stoking the hopes of angry progressives who mourned the outcome of the 2016 election, and spent nearly every minute of airtime promoting one fake story after another.  They relied on “highly placed anonymous sources” for the great bulk of their so called “reporting” and have been burned so many times we've lost count.  
He claims that negative media reports about his preferred president merely originated from a bunch of "disgraced turncoats".
The sources for all the fake news that have fueled headlines and excited predictions of an imminent impeachment may very well have been the disgraced turncoats who have been found to have used every trick in the book, first to change the outcome of a presidential election, and then to abort a presidency before it could succeed.
He again insists that Trump's election to the presidency is a miracle. He also insists that the Nunes memo will be merely the fist of many revelations which will somehow exonerate his preferred president.
The fact that Trump won the presidency, not just against the best efforts of his opponent, but in spite of a hostile media, fake polls, fake news and dozens of respected analysts who said he was a lunatic who was unfit, unhinged and conspired with “the Russians” to steal the presidency, is nothing short of a miracle.  That 2017 was a banner year in so many ways, in spite of the 24/7 impeachment drumbeat is another.  Many more are in store, as the hotly debated Memo is but the first salvo in an arsenal of revelations that will undoubtedly expose and embarrass a bevy of household names.  Embarrassment may be the least of their worries.
Mark Armstrong then ends his weekly update by insinuating that former FBI Director, James Comey, lied about Mark Armstrong's preferred president.
One of the Big Ten, as many refer to God's Commandments, is in play.  The ninth Commandment states, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”  It doesn't just say you shouldn't lie, though that's indicated too.  It says bear false witness against, and that is precisely what has been going on in the top echelon of American institutions of law.  Former Director Comey is known for tweeting Bible passages, but these are not among them.  Listed among seven things God hates are, “A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief.  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”  Looks like the Proverbs (6:17….) have ramifications for this life as well as the next!  Have a wonderful Sabbath,    
And so we see once again how Mark Armstrong has used his weekly update to promote his own, partisan political views.

Bill O'Reilly on the Third Temple

It was disappointing to read the following passage in Killing Jesus (2013) by (the now disgraced) Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard.
In A.D. 637, Muslim forces defeated the Byzantine and predominantly Christian army that occupied Jerusalem. The Muslims later built a mosque on the site of the former Jewish temple. As long as it remains there, Jewish hopes of rebuilding the temple on the original site will remain unrealized. (p. 269.)
After the destruction of the temple Jewish religious authorities came to the consensus that it would not be possible to rebuild the temple. It was taught that the temple would be rebuilt by God upon the arrival of the Messiah. The Jewish religious authorities ordered Jews not to approach the site of the temple lest they should walk upon the Holy of Holies.

It is only in recent times that a numerically small minority of Jews, often associated with the national religious community within the Holy Land, have chosen to overthrow this Jewish religious prohibition and have walked onto the grounds of a Muslim mosque seeking to have some of Jewish shrine on the grounds of the third most revered shrine of the Islamic religion, offending the neighboring Palestinian people. Some of them have even called for the creation of a third temple. One rally by these national religious Jews in 1990 set off a tragic chain of events culminating with about twenty Palestinians being killed by Israeli police personnel on Monday, October 8, 1990.

It is disappointing that this book which because of the popularity of Bill O'Reilly at the time, was widely sold and has gained over ten thousand reviews on, should speak of this inflammatory call among a numerically small minority of national religious Jews as though it was perfectly normal and unremarkable despite the tragedy this idea has helped to bring to pass.
