WOULD YOU SUPPORT A LAW DECLARING AMERICA TO BE THE LAND OF THE PROTESTANT PEOPLE?

Is this what you want for America?

Is this what you want for America?

If you would oppose such a law had it been proposed in your own country, how can you support it when proposed in another country? If you would have objected to such a law because it would discriminate against you as a member of a religious or ethnic minority, how can you possibly support such a law when it is being put forward in your name, with you as the would-be member of Israel’s Jewish majority?

If America Had Laws Like Israel

A new proposed bill, supported by senators on both sides of the aisle, will finally define and determine the United States of America as the land of the Protestant People, the largest religious constituency in the U.S. and the group out of which America’s founding fathers and ruling leadership emerged.

The new law aims to anchor Protestant values in the laws of the land, inspired by the spirit of the American Constitution. Furthermore, the bill proceeds to state that the U.S. will continue to uphold a fundamentally democratic character. According to the new law, the United States will be fully committed to the foundations of Freedom, Justice, and Peace, in light of our Lord Jesus Christ.

At the same time, the bill suggests, the right to implement a national self-definition will be exclusively reserved for the Protestant People. According to the new bill, Protestant values will serve as inspiration to lawmakers and judges at the different levels of the United States’ legislative and judicial branches. In cases where a court of justice encounters difficulties in ruling over issues that have no readily available answers in the Law, in the Christian Canon, or in logical reasoning, it will then rule according to the principles of freedom, justice, integrity and peace stemming from the Protestant heritage.

In addition, the national emblems of the United States, such as its flag and national anthem, will be drawn directly from the tradition of the Protestant Church, and the official calendar of the U.S. will follow the Protestant liturgical year. Finally, the United States will further act to preserve and entrench the Protestant historical and cultural tradition and to cultivate it in the U.S. and abroad.

Any reader who has gotten this far would probably note that such a law could not be passed or even seriously proposed by the United States legislature. In Israel, however, it could become a fundamental law, on a level equivalent to a constitutional amendment in the United States.

The different clauses listed above are not a free interpretation of the bill or wild projections of what this bill could imply; they are the clauses of the original Hebrew bill, translated into the U.S. political context. I have simply replaced the phrase “the Jewish People” and its associated traits with the “Protestant People” and its associated traits, such as “Protestant values” and “the Christian Canon.”

There are currently close to 8 million people living in Israel, more than 20% of which are Palestinian citizens. After years of de facto discrimination against Palestinian citizens of Israel in various aspects of daily life, this new law, if passed, will make such discrimination official: Palestinians will become formally, legally, second-class citizens. And this is without even mentioning the Palestinians who still live under the Israeli occupation in the West Bank.

If you would oppose such a law had it been proposed in your own country, how can you support it when proposed in another country? If you would have objected to such a law because it would discriminate against you as a member of a religious or ethnic minority, how can you possibly support such a law when it is being put forward in your name, with you as the would-be member of Israel’s Jewish majority?

    You say 8 million people & only 20% are Palestinians
    YOU FIGURES ARE INCORRECT sorry….

    There are more Palestinian people in existence in the Middle East than Zionists.
    There are more Palestinian people in existence in the Middle East than people of the Jewish faith.
    In fact the numbers of Zionists & the numbers of Jews together do not make up the total of Palestinians in the Middle East.
    You see Palestinians throughout the Middle East live in refugee camps.
    These Palestinian people who live in refugee camps throughout the Middle East are Palestinian citizens exiled from their homeland through no will or fault of their own & they are waiting to go home.

    WHAT IS MORE IT IS SAID THAT LESS THAN 50% OF THE POPULATION OF ISRAEL IS MADE UP OF PERSONS WHO ARE NOT ZIONISTS NOR ARE THE OF THE JEWISH FAITH.
    THEY DON’T ACTUALLY BELONG THERE & SEEING HOW ISRAEL IS AN ILLEGAL STATE THEY CANNOT BE CITIZENS OF A STATE THAT HAS NO LEGITIMACY.

    I can shout all my life till the day i die hat i am a red cat.
    I will never become a red cat – it is impossible.
    The same applies here..

    In fact holders of an Israeli passport should check with a legal body just to make sure that they are legally okay.
    Just in case circumstances change.

    No more USA dollars to SUPPORT A RELIGION. If USA taxes cannot support a Christian Nativity for a few days HERE ……they certainly cannot support a JEWISH “state”.
