“Christopher Jon Bjerknes, a Jew who founded the Interfaith Council to Defeat the Anti-Christ Al-Dajjal, asserts that Zionism has pitted Christians and Muslims against one another in an effort “to reduce Christendom and Islam to ashes.”
“What better way to fight back,” Bjerknes says, “than to join together the forces of righteousness and peace to expose” the globalist plot for a One World Order and One World Religion.”

Having received no less than 13 standing ovations, Senator Barack Obama’s conciliatory speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) just after his nomination as the official Democratic candidate, more than made up for any comments his former pastor made that were deemed anti-Semitic.
Senator John McCain, the main Republican challenger to Obama, cast doubts on Obama’s sincerity, while others point to the fright over comments about Zionism made by Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago, now Obama’s ex-spiritual advisor. McCain’s loyalty to the Jewish constituency also came into question regarding statements on the same topic that were made by Rev. John Hagee of Texas who was subsequently forced to formally withdraw his endorsement from McCain.
Although McCain emphasizes that at no time was Hagee his pastor, a similarity between the two instances remains. A detailed look at their comments will help explain the theory of Christopher Jon Bjerknes, a Jew who founded the Interfaith Council to Defeat the Anti-Christ Al-Dajjal. He asserts that Zionism has pitted Christians and Muslims against one another in an effort “to reduce Christendom and Islam to ashes. What better way to fight back,” Bjerknes says, “than to join together the forces of righteousness and peace to expose” the globalist plot for a One World Order and One World Religion.
Rev. Hagee: Hitler helped Zionism.
John Hagee, a Christian Zionist, asserted Hitler to be a “hunter” doing the will of God. “A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says — Jeremiah writing — ‘They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,’ meaning there’s no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don’t let your heart be offended. I didn’t write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel.”
Perhaps Hagee suffers from confusion regarding the desire of his Creator, as opposed to the desire of oppressors amongst men.
Hagee did explain himself further, however: “Theodore Herzl is the father of Zionism. He was a Jew who at the turn of the 19th century said, this land is our land, God wants us to live there. So, he went to the Jews of Europe and said, ‘I want you to come and join me in the land of Israel.’ So few went, that Herzl went into a depression. Those who came founded Israel; those who did not, went through the hell of the holocaust.”
Other sources attest to Hagee’s view of history, though not to his interpretations.
Michael Seizer in his book Zionism Reconsidered noted that the Holocaust was seen by Zionists in 1933 as “a God-sent opportunity for an undreamt of wave of immigration to Palestine.” The book, Who Financed Hitler?, by James and Suzanne Pool details how the top globalist of the day financed Hitler for their own ends, a most cruel and calculated effort to eventually sweep the Jews of Europe and Russia into Israel and uphold Zionism as the savior of the Jews.
Ironically Hagee, the Christian Zionist, does not  place proper emphasis on the sadistic population control efforts exercised on Jews during the Holocaust; only on the fact that the ends were achieved.
Christian Zionists adhere to the belief that Armageddon will come to earth after the reestablishment of the Kingdom of Israel. Hence, in a misguided effort to hasten the return of Jesus (peace be upon him), Christian Zionists have turned away from the lovers of Jesus (i.e., Muslims) to those who never supported him.
Rev. Wright: U.S. still helps Zionism.
Rev. Wright, on the other hand, claimed in a past sermon: “We [as Americans] supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic. . . . We care nothing about human life if the end justifies the means. . . .” Although demonized by this and other controversial statements, which were taken out of context, Wright’s ideas that Zionism is a “racist” ideology are not new. In 1975, the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 3379 which defined Zionism as, ‘a form of racism and racial discrimination.’
Stephen Sizer, researcher into the Zionist Christian sect and pastor of Christ Church in Virginia Water, UK (which holds numerous Christian-Muslim unity conferences), upholds that Zionism runs contrary to the teachings of the New Testament. “[The] Mosaic promises were always conditional. ‘Obey and stay or rebel and be removed,” says Sizer, who then continues with a reference from the New Testament, “Jesus himself warns: ‘Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.’ (Matthew 21:43).”
In the commentary of Sura Baqara in the Holy Qur’an, Sheikh Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani speaks about the history of the Jews, encouraging them to come back to the right path. Holy Qur’an is “guidance for all mankind. Come! If you are a Jew, I am not against Jews. I do not say kill them…I feel pity for them because Allah gave them so much honor and they have lost it; Allah trusted them so much and they violated His trust; Allah guided them and they ran away from Him. Open the unchanged Torah (Sura Baqara of the Holy Qur’an) and come back to Allah.”
