[1] Zionism – Conferences and Seminars

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allah [The Exalted] said:

وَإِذَا قُلۡتُمۡ فَٱعۡدِلُواْ وَلَوۡ ڪَانَ ذَا قُرۡبَىٰ‌ۖ
And when you testify, be just, even if (it concerns) a near relative. [1]

When you testify by way of a statement to judge between people, differentiate between them in a discourse, and speak regarding matters and circumstances, be just in your speech, adhere to truthfulness regarding those you love and those you hate, be fair and do not conceal what needs to be made clear because it is forbidden and tantamount to injustice to divert (from justice and fairness) when speaking against the one you hate. [2]

Therefore, we remind ourselves of the fact that not all Jews are engaged in the plots of the Zionists, as Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah preserve him] stated, “It is important to note that not all Jews are involved in these intrigues and the Jews as a population have, throughout history, been subject to the whims and desires of their religious and political leaders, and have been made to undergo much persecution as a result”.

Conferences and seminars

Christian Zionists have hosted and continue to hold numerous conferences and seminars in order to achieve their aims of persuading people not to reject it, gathering the largest number of supporters, and justifying its political, economic, and intellectual activities. In this context, I will mention examples of these conferences and seminars to demonstrate what we perceive to be Christian Zionism’s pursuit of goals and objectives. [Footnote a] The following are the most important of these conferences:

[1] American Christian Conference: This conference was held by an American organization, the “Loyal American Federal Organization For Palestine”. It was held in New York City, America, on December 15, 1936, and was attended by more than 200 personalities, including government officials and Zionist Christian clerics. The conference issued a resolution calling on civilised societies [Footnote b] to assist fleeing Jewish refugees from Germany and Eastern Europe to enter Palestine because it is their natural safe haven.

[2] National Christian Leadership Conference for Israel: It is an annual conference held and organised by the “National Christian Leadership Conference for Israel” in Washington, the capital of the United States of America. As is the title of the conference and the organization, it is held to serve Israel and its interests. Members of the US Congress usually attend the conference. The conference, held in June 1982, called for demonstrations in support of Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, and demonstrations have already taken place in many American cities with the demand to support Israel militarily and economically and understand Israel’s need to protect its people from terrorism. [Footnote c] At this conference, a final statement was issued to support the Jews, emphasising the commitment to Israel’s security and protection, and that all the Jewish Holy Lands belong to the people, and that Jerusalem is the unified and eternal capital of Israel, which may not be internationalised, or be a subject of negotiation or compromise, and that the Jewish people anywhere will remain God’s chosen peoplethose who invoke blessings on them are blessed by the Lord, while those who curse them are cursed by the Lord. [Footnote d]

This annual conference includes lectures and seminars by leading Zionist thinkers and Christians, and chaired by Franklin Little, a lecturer at Temple University in Pennsylvania. [Footnote e] It was held in one of the Jewish synagogues in Washington, D.C., under the slogan: “Encounters Between Fundamentalist Christianity and Jewish Leadership”. Following this conference, they held another conference titled “The National Christian Conference”, whose president stated, “The National Christian Conference was established for the purpose of uniting Christians from a variety of names and organisations who have a common shared interest in the safety of the Jewish homeland”. At the conference’s inaugural meeting, which was attended by one hundred people, including fundamentalists and members from the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and the National Council of Churches, Jack Camp, the Republican Party delegate from New York, stated regarding the establishment of Israel in 1948 as the fulfilment of “biblical prophecy,” and that the United States of America’s role is to provide opportunities for the fulfilment of biblical prophecies in Israel.

[3] “Breakfast and Prayer Conference for Israel”: This conference is one of the activities of the “Religious Round Table” organisation, which was held in Washington, D.C. in 1983. Following the conference, the final declaration was released, which contained paragraphs regarding Israel’s religious, political, and military interests, and the most important of them were:

[I] The call for cooperation – in all spheres – between the United States of America and Israel; then they quoted specific texts from the Old Testament affirming the Jewish right to Palestine.

[II] Calling for the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The statement recognised that the borders of the Holy Land, as defined by the Bible, could not be altered by evolving political and economic circumstances. This conference is held annually, which is why it is referred to as the annual breakfast party organised by the aforementioned organisation to pray for Israel and support its policies and aims. Following the prayer, those conferred or gathered to celebrate usually make a statement in which Israel is blessed in the name of more than 50 million Christians in the United States of America who believe in the Torah. [Footnote f] Political and religious figures, notable businesses, and members from the American government all attend the breakfast meeting. It expresses unequivocal support for Jewish policies in Palestine. On February 1, 1984, they held a conference to pray for Israel at the Shoreham Hotel in the American capital, Washington, where they distributed a Jewish book about the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in the summer of 1982, which they called “a liberation operation of Lebanon from terrorism,” and images from the invasion were also included in the book. More than 500 people attended the prayer conference, including Jewish Zionist leaders such as Alleck Resnick, head of the Zionist Organisation. US Attorney General Edwin Meese, US Ambassador to the Organisation of American States, William Middendorf, Senator Charles E. Grassley, and Breger Marshall, Special Assistant to President Ronald Reagan, all attended the conference. The conference’s topics revolved around the covenant relations between God and the Jewish people, as well as “the responsibility placed on Christians to stand by Israel in the implementation of this “Biblical Covenant”.

Footnote a: “O you who believe! When you hold secret counsel, do it not for sin and wrong-doing, and disobedience towards the Messenger (Muhammad) but do it for Al-Birr (righteousness) and Taqwa (virtues and piety), and fear Allah unto Whom you shall be gathered. Secret counsels (conspiracies) are only from Shaitan (Satan), in order that he may cause grief to the believers. But he cannot harm them in the least, except as Allah permits, and in Allah let the believers put their trust”. [Surah Al-Mujaadilah. Ayaat 9-10]

Those before them indeed plotted, but Allah struck at the foundation of their building, and then the roof fell down upon them, from above them, and the torment overtook them from directions they did not perceive. [Surah Al-Nahl. Ayah 26]

Imam As-Sadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: This is one the best of parables regarding how Allah nullifies the plots of his enemies, for indeed they pondered and reflected on that which the Messengers brought when they belied them, made up principles and rules for it based on falsehood, referred back to them to reject that which the Messengers came with, employed tricks to bring discomfort to the Messengers and inflict harm on them and those who followed them, but their plot became a source of evil against them, so their plan became their destruction because their plot was evil, “But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it”. [Surah Faatir: Ayah: 43] [An Excerpt from Tafseer as-Sadi]


Footnote b: Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: There is no doubt that knowledge is the mainstay on which the foundations of human life are based. And the knowledge that is most worthy to be given importance and concern is the knowledge of the Islamic Shariah because through it is known the wisdom (or purpose) for which Allaah [The Exalted] created us and sent the Messengers. And by way of this knowledge, we acquire knowledge and awareness regarding Allah and worship Him based on that, as Allah stated:

[وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ – I (Allah) did not create the Jinn and humankind except to worship me alone]. [Surah Adh-Dhaariyaat. Ayah 56]

Allah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] stated:

[وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ رَسُولًا أَنِ اُعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَاجْتَنِبُوا الطَّاغُوتَ – Indeed, We have sent a Messenger to every nation, saying, “Worship Allah alone and keep away from all false deities]. [Surah An-Nahl. Ayah 36]

Based on these two Ayaat, one knows the wisdom behind the creation of Jinn and humankind and the wisdom behind the advent of the Messengers. Any nation without sound belief or sound religion is an ignorant nation regardless of how advanced and developed it is, as Allah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] stated: [أَمْ تَحْسَبُ أَنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ أَوْ يَعْقِلُونَ إِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا كَالْأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ سَبِيلً – Or do you think that most of them hear or understand? They are only like cattle; nay, they are even farther astray from the Path. (i.e. even worse than cattle)]. [Surah Al-Furqan. Ayah 44]

A good life is the life of the people of (Islamic) knowledge and faith, as Allah [The Exalted] said:

[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ – O you who believe! Answer Allah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he calls you to that which will give you life]. [Surah Al-Anfaal. Ayah 24] [Majmoo Fataawaa Wa Maqaalaat Ash-Shaikh Ibn Baaz. 2/316]
