God's War on Terror - Walid Shoebat (Ex PLO Terrorist).



GOD’s War on Terror : Book Review

E-mailPrintPDF
Almost daily we are seeing a rising instability in the Middle East, from the toppling of the Mubarack government in Egypt and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, to the uprisings in Tunisia and Libya, the attempts to overthrow the government of Yemen and unrest in Iran. Virtually every country in the Middle East, with the notable exception of Israel, is in turmoil. So it is very timely to review this book by Walid Shoebat, himself an ex-terrorist born in Bethlehem. Growing up in a devout Muslim family in Bethlehem but with a Christian mother, and then moving to America where he undertook intensive studies of the Bible to test his understanding of Islam. This book is a remarkable achievement and shakes conventional Biblical eschatology to its core. At a time when we see the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stand up in the United Nations and call for the destruction of Israel, and the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, aligning the military might of Turkey with Syria and Iran, we know there are troubling times ahead for not just the Middle East, but the whole world. 
In this article, we shall consider some of the main arguments put forward by Walid Shoebat and gain an appreciation of why his interpretation of the Bible as an “eastern book” is probably the correct one.
Interview with Walid Shoebat on the Middle East
Listen as Walid talks about the troubles in Egypt and why they will get worse. He mentions that Egypt is the key to ME stability and that the Muslim Brotherhood will deny the USA passage through the Suez canal, thus changing the dynamics of the military capability. Walid also discusses the rise of Iran and the threat posed to Egypt and points to Bible prophecy where Saudi Arabia will be completely destroyed by Islam.
 Let us now consider some of the contentious issues raised in the book, and ones that challenge conventional theology. We shall consider what the mark of the beast could be and also why Islam is the workings of the anti-Christ.
Shoebat on the Mark of the Beast
One of the most fascination theories Walid puts forward is an entirely new interpretation on the famous mark of the beast in Revelation chapter 13. Most scholars use the science of Gematria to determine who this man could be. By applying numbers to the letters of the name, they derive the number 666, and hence declare who the anti Christ is. The problem with this theory is that everyone from Nero to the Pope and even Mohammed can be shown to produce the number 666. But Walid Shoebat uses an eastern approach and shows how the number is actually a badge of honour and resembles closely the Bismillah and the crossed swords. He proposes that the Apostle John actually was shown the Islamic badge of honour and recorded it the only way he could in the Greek language, using the symbols Chi, Xi and Stigma. From the figures below you can see how closely they compare.
 
Who are the Troops of the Antichrist?
The famous prophecy from the Seventy Weeks about who will be the troops of the Antichrist who is to come, is misinterpreted by taking a western perspective.
“and the troops of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary” [Daniel 9:26]
Conventional thinking says ‘the Roman army destroyed Jerusalem and tore down the temple, so the troops of the Anti-Christ are Roman’. (It is accepted that the prince is the Anti-Christ here).
Who did destroy the Temple?
The Roman Legion under General Titus that destroyed the temple was X Fretensis and was a legion based in Antioch in southern Turkey. These troops were Arabs, Syrians and Turks who are today almost 100 percent Muslim. The cohorts that comprised Legion X Fretensis were:
a) Thracum: from Syria (Syrians)
b) IV Cohort Thracia: Bulgaria and Turkey (Turks)
c) Syria Ulpia Petraeorum: from Petra in Edom (Nabatean Arabs)
d) IV Cohort Arabia: Arabs
So the troops of the Anti-Christ are Muslim and NOT Roman.
What are the seven mountains of Revelation?
These are taken by many scholars to be the seven hills of Rome. This is wrong on two counts. Mountains are identified with heads, so must be nations (not hills), and Rome has 8 hills if you count the Vatican! The Bible identifies Mountains as Empires or Nations by calling Babylon a mountain.
“Behold, I [am] against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee”. [Jeremiah 51:25]
So Mountains are nations, NOT hills!
A beast is defined as a nation or empire that is influenced by Satan and the seven heads or mountains of Revelation 17 are then Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome and Islamic (Ottoman).
So the seventh Satanic beast empire was the Islamic Caliphate ending with the Ottoman Empire in 1922 when Ataturk abolished the Caliphate and turned Turkey into a secular democracy whose economy is now the strongest in the Muslim orld.
The coming of the Mahdi
Walid goes on to show how the Islamic Mahdi who is to appear soon to re-establish the Caliphate is none other than the Anti-Christ of the Bible. From Psalm 83, Joel 3, Isaiah 13-25, Jeremiah 25, Ezekiel 28-32 & 38 and to Daniel 9:27 and 11:36-45, the nations who fight with the Anti-Christ are Islamic countries today, being Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan and Libya.


CONCLUSION
Walid Shoebat was born in Bethlehem Israel and as a young man, he became a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel, and was imprisoned in Jerusalem's central prison for enticement of violence. After entering the U.S, he worked as a counsellor for the Arab Student Organization in Chicago and continued his anti-Israel activities. Later he was active with the Muslim Brotherhood during 1980-1981 in Chicago.
In 1993, Walid did some critical thinking, studied the Bible in a challenge to convert his wife to Islam and after intense study, Walid realized that everything he had been taught about Jew hatred was a lie. Walid converted to Christianity and was convinced he needed to fight evil, he became an advocate for his former enemy.
Driven by a deep passion to shed his former life he set out to tirelessly to combat terrorism and Islamic Fundamentalism worldwide speaking at churches and synagogues, civic groups, government leaders and media.
Walid has written several books including For God or For TyrannyGod’s War on TerrorWhy We Want to Kill You and Why I Left Jihad.
In God’s War on Terror, Walid Shoebat draws on his understanding of Islam and Quranic text and prophecy, his experience with the Muslim Brotherhood and his in-depth study of the Bible to produce an exceptional book which gives a new insight into the Middle East and future events. A must read!

Statement by Professor Israel Shahak
On the Jewish hatred towards Christianity

Dishonouring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on the cross, an especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews. In the past, when the danger of anti-Semitic hostility was a real one, the pious Jews were commanded by their rabbis either to spit so that the reason for doing so would be unknown, or to spit onto their chests, not actually on the cross or openly before the church. The increasing strength of the Jewish state has caused these customs to become more open again but there should be no mistake: The spitting on the cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, organized in Kibbutz Sa'ad and financed by the Israeli government is a an act of traditional Jewish piety. It does not seize to be barbaric, horrifying and wicked because of this! On the contrary, it is worse because it is so traditional, and much more dangerous as well, just as the renewed anti-Semitism of the Nazis was dangerous, because in part, it played on the traditional anti-Semitic past.
This barbarous attitude of contempt and hate for Christian religious symbols has grown in Israel. In the 1950s Israel issued a series of stamps representing pictures of Israeli cities. In the picture of Nazareth, there was a church and on its top a cross - almost invisible, perhaps the size of a millimeter. Nevertheless, the religious parties, supported by many on the Zionist "left" made a scandal and the stamps were quickly withdrawn and replaced by an almost identical series from which the microscopic cross was withdrawn.
Then there was the long-drawn-out battle about Christian influence in elementary arithmetic. Pious Jews object to the international plus sign for it is a cross, and it may in their opinion, influence little children to convert to Christianity. Another "explanation" holds; it would then be difficult to "educate" them to spit on the cross, if they become used to it in their arithmetic exercises. Until the early 1970s two different sets of arithmetic books were used in Israel. One for the secular schools, employing an inverted "T" sign. In the early '70's the religious fanatics "converted" the Labour Party to the great danger of the cross in arithmetic, and from that time, in all Hebrew elementary schools (and now many high schools as well) the international plus sign has beeen forbidden.
Similar development is visible in other areas of education. Teaching the New Testament was always forbidden, but in the old time conscientious teachers of history used to circumvent the prohibition, by organizing seminars or sending the students to libraries (not the school libraries, of course). About 10 years ago there was a wave of denouncing such teachers. One in Jerualem was almost sacked, for advising her history pupils, who were studying the history of Jews in Palestine around 30-40 AD, that it would be a good thing if they would read a few chapters of the New Testament as a historical aid. She retained her post only after humbly promising not to do this again.
However in recent years, anti-Christian feelings are literally exploding in Israel (and among Israel-worshipping Jews in Diaspora too) together with the increase of the Jewish fanaticism in all other areas too.
The real enemies of truth here, as in many other aspects of the Israel reality, are the socialists, "liberals", "radicals", etc. in the USA. Imagine the reaction of the US Liberals, and of such papers as The Nation andNew York Review of Books, not to speak of the New York Times if in any state whatsoever, the government financed spitting on a Star of David? But when here in Israel, the government finances the spitting on a cross, they are and will continue to be, quite silent. More than this, they helpt to finance it. United States taxpayers, who are of course mostly Christians, are finacing at least half the Israeli budget, one way or another, and therfore the spitting on the cross too.

Professor Israel Shahak is an israeli citizen, former concentration camp inmate during WW II, and the founder of Israel's Human Rights League. His new book "Jewish History, Jewish Religion" about Jewish hatred and contempt toward Gentiles, is highly recommended.

ALTHOUGH THIS VIDEO IS VERY INFORMATIVE IN EXPOSING FALSE PROPHETS, HOWEVER I DO HAVE SOME RESERVATIONS. THE AUTHOR OF THIS VIDEO CLAIMS THAT THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST IS SLATED TO OCCUR IN THE YEAR 2028. THIS IS CONTRARY TO SCRIPTURE WHERE JESUS SAID NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR OF HIS RETURN EXCEPT ONLY HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN cf MATHEW 24:36. UNFORTUNATELY THIS KIND OF PREDICTION IS COMMONLY KNOWN AS DATE SETTING. BUT ASIDE FROM THIS, THE REST OF THE VIDEO'S CONTENT IS RIGHT ON TARGET! ENJOY AND GOD BLESS.


The Dangers of
the Hebrew Roots
Messianic Movement


The Influence of the Hebrew Roots movement (HRM) has grown by leaps and bounds over the last century in America. It's impact in this end time is being felt in all areas of Christendom of those who call Jesus Lord. For those who are Born of the Spirit, if they are bereans and study the scriptures comparing this movement with the Gospel given to the NT church, they would see bright flashing danger signs. Sad to say, many are being deceived.

The Hebrew Roots Movement which encompasses Messianic Judaism and both in fact are one and the same, just packaged differently in order to deceive more people, is gaining momentum in these last days. While Messianic Judaism is more Christ oriented, it is really just a stepping stone to the HRM. Many Jews who have accepted Christ as Messiah, are attempting as the Jewish Christians in the early church, to mesh Grace with Judaism under the Old Covenant, making all inclusive with one another the Works of the Law, as well as the ordinances, such as the Sabbath and other holy days and combining them with Christianity. The great Apostle Paul had much to say about this in his letters to the early church. Read the book of Galatians where Paul addresses this heresy and warns the early church that if they follow this teaching, they have fallen from grace.

True Christians are very vulnerable because of their God-given love for the Jewish people and Israel. We long to be one with them. We love the rich heritage of God's chosen people in the natural and we love Israel and Jerusalem, the City God chose as his own. God will restore Israel, but God will not restore the old Judaic Religious System, because Christ came to fulfill what that system could never do. The Laws, ordinances, feasts and festivals all pointed to Christ, but they were only a shadow of the true. The Lamb who was slain from the foundation of the world brought to man in completion what was only a promise to those who lived under the Old Covenant.

Those who know Christ in His fulness will not and cannot hold onto or return to the old religious system under the Law. For when they receive Christ they are set free from the law of sin and death, which is what the OT law was. Jesus Christ is NOT a religious system and he denounced the Religious Jews who followed the Law with studious and practiced devotion, because he knew it could not save them. Christ Jesus is unique and His ministry was unique in that he showed us the only way to the Father, He is the Lord God who came to die for the sin of the world and trusting in his blood and grace alone is all sufficient for sin. Any thing added to that or taken away from that, makes his death in vain and that's what I see happening with those who follow Messianic Judaism and the HRM.

Some of the errors in the HRM, or ANY, for that matter, who classify themselves Messianic Jews today are:

1. They call for Christians to recognize extra-biblical Jewish books, which are supposed to give fuller understanding of the Greek New Testament. In fact some go so far as to proclaim the Hebrew Scriptures are the authentic scriptures, not the Greek text of the KJV Bible.

The New Testament was given in its original, inspired from the Hand of God, in GREEK, not Hebrew. Most of the extra-biblical Hebrew "scriptures" that the HRM is seeking to foist onto the Christian Church are ancient writings, often with occult and mystical sources, traditional material which are NOT Scripture at all. They are extra-biblical sources of knowledge.

The Bible was written in 3 languages:

1. Hebrew was the Language of the Old Testament.
2. Aramaic was the language of the far east until the time of Alexander the Great.
3. Greek was the New Testament language and the International language at the time of Christ.

But yet the Hebrew Roots Movement claims falsely that the original Gospels were written in Hebrew, or possibly Aramaic, and that the Greek New Testament is a mere translation and in some cases a mis-translation of the Hebrew or Aramaic originals. They have even gone so far (some of them) to conclude that Paul's writings where he addressed the heresy they teach, were re-written by Rome and are not authentic. Of course they cannot prove this, but it is enough to cast doubt in their adherents and justify themselves in their error.

The Canon of Scripture is closed and preserved by the Lord in the Greek language. Whether Christians are from Jewish backgrounds or not, we must all recognize the authority of God's Word, as given to us in the Canon of Holy Scripture. No other books can or should be added to this Canon.

While Catholics also add to the Canon of Scripture extra-biblical books and teach much apostasy, the same pattern is seen in the Hebrew Roots Movement as seen in Catholicism. Both add works to divine grace making the grace of Christ of no effect. The Bible is divinely inspired by God from Genesis to Revelation, no other writings are necessary for understanding the Bible. The Holy Spirit reveals the Word to us and we do not need that any man teach us. No other authority can be accepted. Jewish extra-biblical writings do NOT enlighten Christians as to the "hidden meanings" of Scripture. The deep things of God are shown to surrendered Christians by the Holy Spirit opening Scripture and making the Bible plain!

Another huge problem to this movement is that it seems only the Jewish converts and/or rabbis can read and interpret the Hebrew texts which THEY SAY are the authentic and correct New Testament. Out goes the Greek NT you have in the KJV, and in comes the Judaic version with its priests and rabbis. But, Jesus is our High-Priest and the Holy Spirit is our teacher, we do not need man to teach us and if we submit to the teaching of man, whether Jewish Rabbi or Fundamentalist preacher, we will be led astray.

This movement is seeking to cast doubt on the faith once delivered to the church by challenging the very Scriptures we have been given by the Lord. They claim Christians can't fully understand the Scripture until we understand the Torah. But the opposite is true. You will not understand the OT (or the Torah) until you have true revelation of the NT. And if you have true revelation of the NT, you will not allow yourself to fall back under the weak system of the Old Covenant, because you will know the liberty you have found in Christ fulfills all.

The Old Testament (or Torah) is not the greater revelation, nor does the OT shine light on the NT, the NT opens and reveals the OT and shows what the symbols and shadows really meant. The DEEPER things of God are found in the NT, not the OT, because Christ is revealed in all of his glory in the NT. We are rooted, all of us, in CHRIST and while the OT is filled with the glory of the Lord, the NT opens up and reveals His glory in splendor and shows us that intimacy with Christ comes through his sacrifice which surpasses all that went before. Emphasis on the Torah over the NT is emphasizing that which could not save. The Holy Spirit given to all those who are in Christ Jesus, gives us understanding and leads us into all truth, not the Torah.

Jesus instituted a New and Better Covenant with those who believed on him. To Give greater credence to the Torah attempts to alter that Blood-bought covenant by adding back to it the lesser system of the Old Covenant, which was totally fulfilled in Christ.

This covenant is called the:
‘NEW' Heb.9:15,
the ‘SECOND' 8:7,
the ‘BETTER,' 7:22.

The Torah and Old Covenant made with Israel did not lead the Jewish people into all truth, because it was weak and unable to save their souls - all it was able to do, was push their sins forward year after year. But when Jesus came, he brought to man what the Old Covenant could never bring. He wrote the Law upon our hearts (not the ordinances of the OT,) but the moral laws of God. Those things that the Jews could never do, because sin lived within them he gave us power to do.

The Jews had no trouble keeping the ordinances, feasts, festivals and holy days. However, the Ten Commandments (Moral Law of God) they could not keep. While they added much religious tradition to the Law given on Mt. Sinai, it was a yoke the people could not bear. Jesus took that old yoke away when he signed in blood the New Covenant given for the sins of the world. But the HRM's intent is to keep the Old Covenant (that yoke of bondage) and add it to the New Covenant of Grace. So what becomes their top priority?:

2. Keeping the Law of Moses with all of the ordinances of the OT Law.

However, Christians under the New Covenant have a much higher calling to holiness than did the Old Testament saints under the Law of Moses.

"The Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster" (Gal. 3:24-25). HRM is seeking to bring us back under the schoolmaster.

Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness to every one that believes. (Rm. 10:4); "The Law and the prophets were until John the Baptist (Luke 16:16); "The Law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ" (John. 1:17).

I don't believe we should be observing the feasts or the Sabbath or any of the Jewish holy days, because Paul warned us that, "After that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?" He clarifies exactly what he means by his next words: "Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid [for] you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain" (Gal. 4:10-11).

If we in any way try to keep the Law of Moses or keep all of these OT ordinances, Christ has become no effect to us, because whether you realize it or not you're striving to be justified by the Law. Paul says those that do this have fallen from grace. (Gal. 5:4).

Galatians 5:18 says "If ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the Law."

Titus 1:14 says not to give heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men, for those that do have turned from the truth.

I believe the Hebrew Roots organizations have become the modern equivalent of the Judaisers who followed the Apostle Paul from city to city, spying on the NT believers' liberty in Christ and striving to pervert the Gospel and cause confusion among the Early Christians. When these Judaisers sought to draw the Christians of the Galatian church back under the Judaic Religious System, Paul warned the Galatian church to not give credence to their arguments for they were perverting the Gospel of Christ.

Instead of Christ alone, the HRM and Messianic Jewish Movement over-balance into the religion that they have never really left! They cannot grasp that ALL is fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ. Not only that, but they want the Christians to embrace the O.T. Jewish religious beliefs, ordinances, and traditions that were necessary under the Law as well!

I believe this movement is part and parcel of the Great Apostasy that is invading Christianity in these last days on the same level as Catholicism, Word of Faith, Kingdom Now theology, and many others.

We must be bereans in these last days and keep our eyes on our Savior who bought us with his precious blood and not exchange the gift of grace for the weak and beggerly system of observing the Jew's Religion under the Law.

At the same time, we must pray for our Jewish brothers and sisters and pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for in so doing we are bringing back the King

IN CLOSING ONE FINAL THOUGHT:

Just because a "Jew" claims to be messianic means nothing.

The Chabad Lubavitch movement was messianic and their messiah was Rabbi Schneerson, not Jesus. they even called him "Yeshua" aka savior.

They practise Kabbalah which is jewish satanism and witchcraft.
The 6 pointed star on the Israelie flag is the star of Moloch
It clearly tells you who they serve

Amos 5:26 - But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

Moloch was the satanic practise of burning their own children

Acts 7:43 - Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

2 Kings 23:10 - And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.

Replacement theology is believing that jews who deny Jesus are the chosen people.

John 3:36 - He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

I do believe this so called messianic movement is to usher in the antichrist and proclaim him as the "christ" or messiah - beware

2 Peter 2:1 - But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. Jude 1:4 - For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men,
turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.




Mark 7:5 - Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?




Mar 7:8 - For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mar 7:9 - And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.




Mar 7:13 - Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

John 5:16 - And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

Jhn 5:18 - Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. Jhn 7:1 - After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. Act 9:22 - But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ. Act 9:23 - And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:




Act 13:50 - But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts. Act 23:12- And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.




1 Cor 1:23 - But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.




Rev 2:9 - I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Rev 3:9 - Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.


1 John 2:22 - Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1 Jo 2:23 - Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

Martin Luther King Cheated On His Wife & Other Lesser-Known Facts About The Civil Rights Leader For MLK Day

 on 
One of the easiest things to forget about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is that he was just a person. One of the most influential people of the 20th century, no doubt, but a person with unique flaws and quirks that made him different from the Christ-like figure he’s often portrayed as today.
At the time of King’s assassination on April 4, 1968, he was still the personification of the civil rights movement in the United States. But those near him said he appeared to have lost a step, in part because of conflicts in his inner circle of advisers and a growing estrangement from his former ally President Lyndon B. Johnson over the Vietnam War.
Five years after his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, though, and 40 years before the first African-American  became president, King stepped onto the balcony outside his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn.
King was on the balcony sneaking a cigarette
When racist assassin James Earl Ray aimed his rifle sight at King, he almost certainly saw the civil rights leader doing something King's children never saw him doing: smoking. King was a lifelong smoker, although very few – if any – pictures exist as proof because he never smoked in public. King didn’t want his family to know about the habit.
After King was shot, his advisers stopped the bleeding while one of them, Dr. Billy Kyles, removed a pack of cigarettes from King’s pocket.
The Kennedy brothers allowed FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to wiretap King
In July 1963, one month before King’s March on Washington, Hoover personally convinced Attorney General Robert Kennedy – brother of the president – to let the FBI install listening devices in King’s home, office and phone lines. Hoover created the FBI in his own image decades before, and by the 1960s Hoover had become paranoid and bitter.
Five years of government monitoring never provided proof that King associated with Communists, only evidence of Hoover’s bigotry in the form of racist memos from the FBI director to his subordinates.
King was a serial adulterer
While the ethical reasons for the FBI’s monitoring of King were murky (at best), the recordings do make up much of what we now know about the man’s personal life. King had engaged in so many extramarital affairs that his wife, Coretta Scott King, had reportedly become disillusioned with their marriage.
FBI monitoring devices recorded audio of King during a tryst at a Washington, D.C., hotel, eventually sending the tape to Mrs. King in an effort to discredit him in his own home. King even spent the last night of his life with a woman who was not his wife. In the chaos outside the Lorraine Motel, his advisers told the young woman to stay out of the ambulance to avoid tarnishing his legacy.
King’s right-hand man, Ralph Abernathy, wrote in his 1989 autobiography that the staff “all understood and believed in the biblical prohibition against sex outside marriage. It was just that he had a particularly difficult time with that temptation.” Abernathy also wrote that King had a “weakness for women” while Johnson – who considered King’s criticism of Vietnam a personal betrayal – called him a “hypocritical preacher.”
At the time of his death, King had the heart condition of a 60-year-old man
Negotiating with government leaders while trying to unite poor people and fend off death threats would be enough to stress anyone out. King’s autopsy results revealed that his heart appeared to be from someone 21 years older. His poor eating habits almost certainly contributed, with aides reporting that they had to monitor the leader’s diet and often joked with him about his ballooning weight.
Conservative politicians have claimed King was a Republican
The modern Republican Party’s inability to attract a large number of black voters has inspired campaign strategists to capitalize on a rumor that King stood in their ranks. The idea began after a 2009 interview in which King’s niece, the Rev. Alveda King, speculated her uncle was a registered GOP voter, a claim later refuted by his son. There seems to be scant documentation to prove either family member right, but pundits on both sides of the aisle can probably agree his image is more significant as a humanitarian.
