Misbegotten Alliance: Ted Pike and Rabbi Lapin

by Michael A. Hoffman II Copyright 2006

From a reader:

Ted Pike gave an interview recently, I think it was on Daryl Smith's program, where in his concluding remarks he dropped a stunning comment to the effect that Rabbi Lapin represented true resistance.  I don't doubt Ted Pike's sincerity or his scholarship. However it seems that in tailoring his message to make it efficacious for evangelicals, and thereby, to drive a wedge between themselves and Zionism, he sometimes appeals to their delusional sensibilities in a way that compromises the message.   B.F.

Hoffman Replies: Dear B.F. I did research and discovered the following, allegedly written recently (2006) by Ted Pike.

Ted Pike wrote:

Rabbi Daniel Lapin, in his recent "Toward Tradition" TV programs, on Trinity Broadcasting Network, is saying that Evangelical Christians are under "relentless attack" from "Secular Judaism." As such, he says, only he, as an orthodox rabbi, is in a unique position to resist it. Why? Probably because only he, as a Talmudic, Zionist, Jew of Jews, can withstand Secular Judaism's inevitable accusation of anti-semitism....In a recent e-alert entitled "Needed: New Jewish Exodus from ADL/B'nai B'rith Bondage, I suggested that a new "Moses," an eminent Jewish leader such as Rabbi Lapin, might lead Jews of good intention out of subservience to B'nai B'rith's evil influence. It is heartening to hear Rabbi Lapin requesting the support of TBN viewers as he seems to be wanting to do just that. ...Rabbi Lapin has awarded Abe Foxman, head of the ADL, with Judaism's "Our Own Worst Enemy Award." Lapin correctly perceives that, more than any threat from Gentiles, ADL/B'nai B'rith is stimulating a surge of anti-semitism throughout the world by its arrogance and anti-Christian abrasiveness. In soliciting the financial help of both Christians and Jews to oppose "Secular Judaism," Rabbi Lapin has a huge fight on his hands. Thousands of years ago, God instructed the Jews being exiled to Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar that, in the lands of their exile, they should seek the welfare of their Gentile neighbors. He said that in the peace of these Gentiles they, also, would find peace. (Jer. 29:4-8) ...Rabbi Lapin wants to bring Jews back to obedience to the instructions God gave to the exiles under Jeremiah. Few Jewish leaders over the past 2,000 years have had such courage. Is Rabbi Lapin the "second Moses" I wished for to lead sincere Jews out of ADL/B'nai B'rith bondage? Time will tell. Right now, he deserves the encouragement of all who love freedom! (Pike then gives Lapin's address and contact information). End Quote from Rev. Ted Pike (emphasis supplied)

Hoffman replies:

I had no idea whatsoever that Ted Pike was advocating anything like this. He is knowledgeable about the Talmudic nullification of the Bible (having made a video documentary about it), so I would never have expected him to declare that a zealous follower and exponent of the Talmud like Rabbi Lapin "...wants to bring Jews back to obedience to the instructions God gave to the exiles under Jeremiah."

Rabbi Lapin can do that without Jesus Christ?

The only way Lapin could become faithful to the Old Testament would be to repudiate his Bible-nullifying Talmud. I heard Lapin on John Hagee's radio show, in the course of which Mr. Hagee furnished as the basis of his "Christian theology" his racial regard for Judaics as an ethnic group of holy people who do not need Jesus in order to be saved. The supposition being that they are saved by their race, exactly as the rabbinic "traditions of men" teach. While on Hagee's show, Daniel Lapin applauded Hagee and did nothing to discourage this diabolical lie, which undoubtedly causes tens of thousands of Judaic souls to continue in their bondage and unregenerate spiritual condition.

If Hagee and Lapin are correct, why did Jesus bother to come to earth and preach to Peter, James and John and the multitude of the "am ha'aretz," everyone of them Jews? Didn't Jesus know what Rabbi Lapin and Rev. Hagee know? And now Ted Pike is in this melting pot too?

Who is the Judaic god? Is it Yahweh, the God of the Old Testament, whose blessed name Judaism's Mishanic superstition does not permit them to pronounce? No, their god is not the God of the Old Testament. They worship a strange god, none other than themselves. A religion based on self-worship, whether practiced by a right wing rabbi or a left wing ADL honcho, still constitutes the same appalling race pride and boasting that Jesus Christ, John the Baptist and the Apostle Paul all declared to be the enemy of God! But I guess we can win the battle against abortion and homosexuality without Jesus, John and Paul, as long as we have a conservative Orthodox rabbi in our ranks.

Who was it that killed all the prophets, from Abel the just, onward? It was the forerunners of the Pharisees. What is Orthodox Judaism today? As Rabbi Jacob Neusner makes clear, Orthodox Judaism is the continuation of the creed of the Pharisees. When the prophet Isaiah rose up to declare that Israel had sinned, the Talmud states that Isaiah was justifiably killed for his "crime." The Talmud that Lapin and Foxman revere, says that the Old Testament prophet Isaiah--like Jesus Christ--got what he deserved.

Talmudic/Kabbalistic psychology predates and informs the Hegelian dialectical strategy of representing opposing positions in almost any public controversy. Historically, agents of Orthodox Judaism have often played each side against the other. ADL leader Foxman's role in this dialectic is tomollify (leftist) Democrat secularists whose support for Zionism might be curtailed if they were to regard the Israeli alliance with American Churchianity as uncritical and monolithic.

That is the liberal Kabbalistic thesis. Let us turn now to the conservative Talmudic antithesis. Rabbi Daniel Lapin's role in the dialectic is to instill in right wing Republican church-goers the belief that Orthodox Judaism is firmly supportive of conservative Christian action in favor of family values and against abortion and sodomy.

Orthodox Judaics have positioned themselves on both sides of the issue. Orthodox Judaic Foxman represents the Leftist ideal of secularism, while Orthodox Judaic Lapin is seen to attack Foxman in public, while offering support for the Right. To penetrate and overthrow this dialectic, we must anticipate the ultimate synthesis toward which this rabbinic chess game is oriented.

In order to deprogram gullible Right wing church-goers concerning the deceptions in which they are entangled, we are ourselves must strive for the strictest accuracy in our statements, while anticipating and deconstructing through analysis and exposure, the Orthodox Judaic infiltration of Right wing American churches. Our focus should be on exposing Foxman and Lapin and even more importantly, documenting the source of their deception, infiltration and subversion: the Talmudic-Kabbalistic synthesis which they both faithfully serve.

Lapin is Judaism's emissary to the Right. Foxman is Judaism's emissary to the Left. Both men are dedicated servants of the same false god. Both are following the dictates of the rabbinic texts concerning subverting and destroying the Christians and the gentiles.They merely approach the task from different directions, but the result is the same: Foxman preserves Zionism's cachet with liberals and agnostics, while Lapin gains acceptance for Judaism among Church-going conservatives.

I ask Ted Pike, and all the "clever" people who think they are going to ally with one dedicated Pharisee against another, as Jesus never did, what fellowship hath light with darkness? Ted Pike was once a fine source of anti-Talmudic and anti-Zionist information. I pray that God will give him the grace to return to his heritage and repent of the aid and comfort he has furnished to the right wing of the predatory bird that is the Judaic dialectic. Otherwise, I regret to say, he will disqualify himself as a leader of Christians. Pike has played 'the rabbi card.' He's not the first to do so, but have we not had a bellyful of these kosher conservative tactics from the Hagees and Falwells of the world?

Instead of an invocation of "powerful" rabbinic "prestige," we ought to be working for the Gospel of Jesus Christ without guile, without daring to mix it with darkness; asking God to use our innocent Gospel witness to confound the brilliant, demoniacal intellects of this world, as it is written: "God deliberately chose the things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose those who are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important, so that no one can ever boast in the presence of God." [I Corinthians 1:27-29].
