Trump’s Plan for Israel: Divided Jerusalem, with East Jerusalem as Palestine’s Capital


Trump’s Plan for Israel: Divided Jerusalem, with East Jerusalem as Palestine’s Capital

By Julio Severo
As shocking as it seems, a report published last week in the Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post, titled “Trump peace plan: divide Jerusalem, Palestinian state on 85-90% of W. Bank,” says,
“US President Donald Trump’s ‘deal of the century,’ expected to be rolled out after the [Israeli] elections on April 9, will include a Palestinian state on 85-90% of the West Bank and the division of Jerusalem.”
It is not shocking if you consider that all U.S. administrations, both left-wing and right-wing, worked hard to divide Israel.
Shocking because, in Trump’s case, it seemed that he was going to a different direction from his predecessors. It seemed that he wanted the whole Jerusalem only for Israel. But this is not so.
In my report last year, titled “Everybody Celebrated Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital But No One Read the Fine Print or Saw the Hidden Plan: Trump Wants to Give Part of Jerusalem to Palestinians,” I had informed that Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was not clear and had loopholes for the next U.S. presidents to recognize East Jerusalem as Palestine’s capital. I had thought that a future president, not Trump himself, would use such loopholes.
According to the Jerusalem Post,
“Regarding Jerusalem, the report stated that the city would be divided, with west Jerusalem and some areas of east Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and east Jerusalem — including most of the Arab neighborhoods — the capital of a Palestinian state. Israel would retain sovereignty over the Old City and its immediate environs, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, but it would be administered together with the Palestinians, Jordanians and perhaps other countries.”
Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital made evangelicals, who elected him, happy. But his current plan, which uses loopholes to keep the traditional U.S. plan of a divided Jerusalem and a divided Israel, goes against the Bible and evangelicals.
Instead of dividing Israel, just as other U.S. presidents did, Trump could propose a plan for the relocation of Palestinians, whose majority are Muslims, to Saudi Arabia, the capital of global Islam and global Islam terror. If the Islamic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia cannot give lands to Palestinian Muslims, why should Israel do it?
The traditional U.S. plan of a divided Israel is not different of the plan of the Vatican and Russia for Israel. But because the U.S. is the largest Protestant nation in the world, why cannot the U.S. follow the will of its evangelical population, who loves what God says, in the Bible, about Israel, its land and borders?
Last December, my Facebook account was blocked for 30 days (since then, it is a 60-day block) over a post by me defending Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. I expected such block if Facebook were a company in the Vatican or Russia, because of their traditional stance supporting a divided Jerusalem and Israel.
Yet, who expects such stance from a big U.S. capitalist company owned by a Jew? Facebook’s owner is Mark Zuckerberg, an American-Jewish left-wing man.
As far as Jerusalem is concerned, I pray that Trump may put the feelings of his evangelical constituents above the feelings of Saudi Arabia, Facebook, the Vatican, Russia and the traditional U.S. neocon foreign policy.

Christians suffered an increase in persecution last year with 245 MILLION facing Islamic violence or oppression around the world — 30 million more than a year ago, while Great Britain rejects persecuted Christians and appoints Muslim as special envoy on freedom of religion


Christians suffered an increase in persecution last year with 245 MILLION facing Islamic violence or oppression around the world — 30 million more than a year ago, while Great Britain rejects persecuted Christians and appoints Muslim as special envoy on freedom of religion

By Julio Severo
“Christians around the world suffered a huge increase in persecution last year — with around 30 million more people being targeted than in the previous year,” said George Martin in a DailyMail report.
The full DailyMail report said,
A report by Open Doors, a Dutch charity that supports persecuted Christians showed that in total, 245 million faced violence or oppression in 2018, with 73 countries listed as danger zones for Christians.
China has been named among the most dangerous places to be a Christian after new laws governing religious expression led to raids and the demolition of scores of churches.
At least 50 million people expected to experience some form of repression this year as the government tightens its controls over religious worship.
While India has also seen a spate of against ultra-nationalists against non-Hindu minorities — the report claimed.
“Rising nationalism is leading to similar persecution in other countries such as Bhutan, Myanmar and Nepal where national identity is tied to religion,” the charity said.
Open Doors said in its 2019 World Watch List, which ranks 50 countries, that one in three Christians face high levels of persecution in Asia - as India entered the top 10 for the first time.
The DailyMail report then explains that the Open Doors’ List
comes just three weeks after Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt ordered an independent review into the persecution of Christians worldwide. Hunt said: “Britain has long championed international religious freedom, and the prime minister underlined our global leadership on this issue when she appointed my excellent colleague Lord Ahmad as her special envoy on freedom of religion or belief. So often the persecution of Christians is a telling early warning sign of the persecution of every minority.”
There are at least two major faults in the report. First, if “Britain has long championed international religious freedom,” why was persecuted Catholic Asia Bibi denied asylum in Great Britain? A report published in the British newspaper The Telegraph sheds light in the true reality of Great Britain. It is titled “Asia Bibi ‘not offered UK asylum amid concerns of unrest and attacks.’”
Asia could not get asylum in Great Britain amid concerns of unrest and attacks of a large population of Muslim invaders in Great Britain! A nation traditionally Christian, especially Protestant, now lives in fear of Muslim invaders.
Yet, instead of recognizing the threat of the invaders, the DailyMail report unashamedly says Primer Minister, Theresa May, “appointed Lord Ahmad as her special envoy on freedom of religion or belief.” Conservatives, especially Christians, expected much more from May, who presents herself as conservative. Obviously, her appointment was not meant to please persecuted Christians, but their Islamic oppressors.
Lord Ahmad is a Muslim. To appointed a Muslim as a “special envoy on freedom of religion” to review into the persecution of Christians worldwide is akin to putting a fox to review if chicken in the hennery have been persecuted by foxes. Great Britain is laughing in the faces of persecuted Christians around the world.
By denying asylum to persecuted Catholic Asia Bibi and appointing a Muslim as a special envoy on freedom of religion, Great Britain cannot be taken seriously as a nation that champions international religious freedom.
By the way, I enjoy reading the British newspaper DailyMail, but their reports on Islamic issues are biased. Whenever I comment on their reports on Islam trying to explain the irresponsibility of Great Britain and Europe allowing hordes of Islamic invaders, DailyMail rejects my comments — in the same way newspapers in Saudi Arabia would censor my comments showing that the explanation for the persecution of Christians around the world is very simple: Christians have been, overwhelmingly, victims of Islamic oppressors.

Senators and Congressmen of Brazil’s Bolsonaro Go to China to Import Communist Surveillance System of Citizens


Senators and Congressmen of Brazil’s Bolsonaro Go to China to Import Communist Surveillance System of Citizens

By Julio Severo
Senators and Congressmen of President Jair Bolsonaro’s party were invited by the Chinese communist government, which is paying all travel expenses, for them to get a closer look at the facial recognition system.
One of the objectives of the trip is for Bolsonaro’s PSL (Social Liberal Party) to know the communist headquarters where the Chinese surveillance system of Chinese citizens is operated, as well as communist companies that dominate this technology. The idea of the PSL is to achieve a partnership with Chinese communists and bring this technology to Brazil.
“The Chinese are very much ahead of us on the issue of public safety, and as a representative of the State of Rio de Janeiro this whole technology interests me very much,” said the Brazilian congressman Felício Laterça to the Brazilian news site UOL before embarking with a delegation of 12 lawmakers on their trip to China, on Tuesday (January 15).
Included in the trip are Senator Soraya Thronicke, and members of the Brazilian Congress Carla Zambelli, Daniel Silveira, Tio Trutis, Felício Laterça, Bibo Nunes, Charltes Evangelista, Marcelo Freitas, Sergeant Gurgel and Aline Sleutjes, Delegada Sheila, all from Bolsonaro’s party.
Senators and Congressmen of Bolsonaro’s party doing to China
The Communist Party of China uses the surveillance system to keep broad social, political and religious control over its citizens by watching over them without their perceiving or doing anything wrong. Although the Chinese Communist government says it only uses this system against criminals, Christians and political dissidents are routinely punished and imprisoned.
According to UOL, congressmen and senators from PSL in the Brazilian Congress will introduce a bill requiring the establishment of facial recognition technology in public places to assist law-enforcement agencies in the fight against crime and the capture of suspects or fugitives.
Communist China employs the largest and most modern surveillance system in the world, which uses facial recognition to identify citizens — and thus arrest criminals and suspects. The equipment can recognize the faces of people, allowing to identify their sex and age, including information such as the car that the citizen uses, his more frequent routes, his relatives and the people with whom he comes in contact, financial and professional data and others issues.
The partnership with communist China comes at a time when the Bolsonaro administration, widely seen as right-wing, has clearly condemned the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela. Nevertheless, the Venezuelan dictatorship has been less communist than the Chinese government, because Maduro’s dictatorship has not persecuted Christians as much as the Chinese government has persecuted them. So he who denounces Maduro has the obligation to denounce much more the Chinese communist dictatorship.
If the Workers’ Party, the socialist party that ruled Brazil during the Lula or Dilma administrations (2002-2016), had sent its senators and congressman to China to import into Brazil the Chinese communist surveillance system of citizens, there would have been an outcry. All conservative and right-wing writers would have denounced it as a communist maneuver for controlling citizens. But what will happen now that the right-wing Bolsonaro administration is doing it?
Many supporters of Bolsonaro criticized Pope Francisco for sending a representative to Maduro’s inauguration. But who will criticize the senators and congressmen of Bolsonaro’s party for doing something vastly worse?
Even if Bolsonaro’s party sent its senators and congressmen to the U.S. to import into Brazil some U.S. surveillance system of citizens, this would still be a dictatorial control. For many years American conservatives have denounced the immoral surveillance of the U.S. government over American citizens. The exposés of Edward Snowden against this system were widely supported by American conservatives.
Whether being imported from communist China or the U.S., constant state surveillance and control of citizens is a dangerous thing.
Regardless if it is Lula’s Workers’ Party or Bolsonaro’s PSL that is seeking such control, it should be exposed.
Regardless if they are seeking this system from Venezuela, China or the U.S., it should be exposed.
One of my favorite TV shows was “Person of Interest,” with Jim Caviezel struggling to keep the U.S. government from gaining control of a supercomputer for citizens’ surveillance. Unfortunately, the surveillance problem does not exist only on TV shows. It is a reality that is craved by left-wing governments and — who could tell? — a right-wing government in Brazil that wants the help of communist China to monitor Brazilian citizens.

Netanyahu: “We have no better friends in the world than the Evangelical community, and the Evangelical community has no better friend in the world than the State of Israel.”


Netanyahu: “We have no better friends in the world than the Evangelical community, and the Evangelical community has no better friend in the world than the State of Israel.”

By Julio Severo
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a gathering of Brazilian Evangelical Christians on Sunday that they are the Jewish state’s best friends. Netanyahu is in a six-day visit to Brazil to attend the inauguration of Jair Bolsonaro as president.
This is the first time an Israeli Prime Minister ever visits Brazil. Even though Brazil had several conservative Catholic presidents, no one of them was willing to get close to Israel. With Jair Bolsonaro, a nominal Catholic, was different, because his main voting base was evangelical.
“We have no better friends in the world than the Evangelical community, and the Evangelical community has no better friend in the world than the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said at the event in Rio de Janeiro. According to the Israeli newspaper World Israel News, “The large Brazilian Evangelical population country is credited with leading the way to President-elect Jair Bolsonaro’s rise to power earlier this year.”
Netanyahu expects Israel’s relations with Brazil to improve because of the influence evangelicals have on Bolsonaro. Netanyahu told the Evangelical event: “President Bolsonaro says, ‘We are brothers.’ We are brothers, and we are going to seize the future together.
“You know that President Bolsonaro’s first name in Hebrew is Yair, which is also the name of our son. But Yair means something in Hebrew: He who brings light. And I think that we have now an opportunity together to bring a lot of light to the people of Brazil and the people of Israel. This is an alliance of brothers. So I want to invite all of you next year in Jerusalem.”
Earlier on Sunday, Netanyahu told Brazilian Jewish leaders that Bolsonaro had informed him that he wants to move the Brazilian Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He said Bolsonaro had pledged that “it is not a question of if, just a question of when.”
Bolsonaro’s promise to move the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem was a promise to please evangelical voters. It is not known if he is going to fulfill his promise as soon as possible or if he will keep endlessly postponing not to displease his evangelical voters.
Even though World Israel News and other Israeli news outlets credit Brazilian evangelicals with Bolsonaro’s victory, after his election Bolsonaro stopped from giving evangelicals the main credit, which he now gives to revisionists of the Inquisition.
The Inquisition had its dark hand in Brazil, which is today the largest Catholic nation in the world. In the last years, Brazilian Jewish authors have published several books on the suffering and death of Brazilian Jews caught in the dragnet of the Inquisition.
Brazilian Jews were able to establish a holiday in remembrance to the Jews who suffered persecution and death under the Inquisition in Brazil. There is also the Brazilian Museum of the Inquisition, created by Jews.
The Inquisition, which has a history of persecution and execution of Jews, including in Brazil, has been a flagship of several radical Catholic “conservative” groups in Brazil that advocate its revisionism. The most prominent Brazilian advocate of the revisionism of the Inquisition, Olavo de Carvalho, has had on Bolsonaro the same bad influence Steve Bannon had on U.S. President Donald Trump in the past. In fact, both Carvalho and Bannon are adherents of the Islamic occultist René Guénon.
Eventually, Trump saw Bannon as an opportunist and expelled him from the White House. The hope and prayer of many evangelicals who voted for Bolsonaro is for him to see also that Carvalho is an opportunist and expel his influence from his administration.
In contrast with the father of Netanyahu, who is the author of a massive book against the Inquisition and its revisionism Carvalho has downplayed the horrors of the Inquisition, including in this public comment:
“Even in the popular image of the Inquisition fires, lies are predominant. Everybody believe that condemned individuals ‘died burned,’ amid horrible suffering. The flames were high, more than 16 feet high, to hinder suffering. The condemned individuals (less than ten a year in two dozen nations) died suffocated in a few minutes, before the flames could touch them.”
It is more than natural that the most prominent Brazilian advocate of the Inquisition sees the best friends of Israel as worse than Marxists. Antagonizing (something that the self-proclaimed “strategist” in the case of Trump never tried to do) evangelicals, the self-proclaimed “strategist” in the case of Bolsonaro has said, “Evangelical churches have done more harm to Brazil than the entire left has done.” Does it mean that he wants Bolsonaro to fight more now evangelical churches than the fight he had against the left?
Does it mean that when evangelicals, who were victims of the Inquisition, embrace Israel and the Jews, who were also victims of the Inquisition, as their best friends, a bigger harm than Marxism will result?
He also said:
“Whoever has studied the Soviet cultural offensive and the posterior Gramscian strategy understands something that seems still totally ignored by 100 percent of liberals and conservatives in this nation: to remove from the popular conscience myths as the ‘Inquisition’… is infinitely more important than removing socialist President Dilma Rousseff from the Brazilian government.’”
Dilma is the former Brazilian socialist president, impeached by an evangelical effort. Then, out of pure envy, for Carvalho to remove the “myth” of the Inquisition is infinitely more important than eliminating the left.
He also said:
“I repeat: there was never an entity called ‘the Inquisition’ and much less ‘Holy Inquisition.’”
If the Inquisition never existed, then does the multitude of Jewish books against the Inquisition spread lies? Or is the great liar Olavo de Carvalho, adherent and propagandist of another liar, the Islamic occultist Guénon?
In 2013, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Pope Francis at the Vatican, and gave the leader of the Catholic Church “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain,” a book that largely revolves about Spanish Catholics questioning, torturing, and punishing the Jews, exposing how thousands of them were expelled from Spain or burned at the stake.
The Jewish Journal said that “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain,” a scholarly magnum opus and in-depth tome on the Spanish Inquisition, describes how the Catholic Church persecuted, and often executed, masses of Jews.
Business Insider noted that “it is important to think of the context of the book, which is written by Netanyahu’s father Ben-Zion Netanyahu, a well-regarded historian who worked at both Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Cornell University.”
CBS News said, “Netanyahu’s father, Ben-Zion Netanyahu, was an Israeli historian… best known in academic circles for his research into the Catholic Church’s medieval inquisition against the Jews of Spain.”
Evangelicals are a solid hope for the Bolsonaro administration, but the revisionists of the Inquisition and their opportunism represent a real challenge and threat.
Yet, with evangelicals and their prayers, Brazil is having an excellent new beginning: With Israel at their side. With Netanyahu officially saying that Brazilian evangelicals are the best friends of Israel, Brazil is getting a great new chance to advance as a nation finding God’s blessings.
I wonder if God will open the doors to Brazil in an extraordinary way. In 2008 I met American prophet Chuck Pierce, who told that if Brazil got closer to Israel, God was going to give to Brazil the anointing that the U.S. has lost. You can read about his vision in this article: Brazil, the Next (Regional or Global) Threat to the U.S. Economic Supremacy?
As a Brazilian conservative evangelical, I welcome Netanyahu’s words: “We have no better friends in the world than the Evangelical community.”
Yet, I have a doubt about his other comment, “Evangelical community has no better friend in the world than the State of Israel.” Considering that the Israeli government, even under the right-wing coalition of Netanyahu, has advocated the homosexual agenda, would Netanyahu and his administration treat conservative evangelicals opposed to the gay agenda as friends or enemies?
Only God can help the nominal Catholic Bolsonaro have a real encounter with Jesus Christ and protect himself and his administration from opportunists, especially the revisionists of the Inquisition.
Only God can help Netanyahu also have a real encounter with Jesus Christ and become a real friend of conservative evangelicals who oppose abortion and the homosexual agenda, because there are no greater supporters of Israel than conservative evangelicals, and I am gladly one of them.
My hope is the we conservative evangelicals, in our friendship with Israel, may have more and more influence on the Bolsonaro administration and that right-wing Catholics, who love the Inquisition and its revisionism (which is an obvious sign of clear or covert enmity toward Jews), may lose their influence on the Bolsonaro administration.
The fight in Brazil now is more than socialism versus capitalism. It is the best friends of Israel versus the best friends of the Inquisition.
