My exclusive interview with Andrew Hyatt, director of “Paul Apostle of Christ”: a beautiful conversation

Dear guys, it’s my honor to present you my exclusive interview with Andrew Hyatt, director of “Paul Apostle of Christ”, a faith-based movie released in 2018, with Jim Caviezel and James Faulkner. Two years later the original release of the picture, we had a very nice and candid conversation. I’m exited to have Andrew in my artist list: he was one of my most wanted. The interview is one of the most precious I have ever done: enjoy it.

A huge Thanks to Tana Evans, for Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, AFFIRM Films & Television.

Hello mr. Hyatt, thank you for having accepted my request, in exclusive for theorangeblogger.com. I’m honored to interview you and to promote your movie. Now, let’s talk about it, two years after the original release.  

1. There have been more than 2 years since the original release of “Paul Apostle of Christ”: How has it gone? Are you satisfied with the gotten result, both artistically  and commercially?  

Thank you again for your interest in the film! I am very pleased with the release of Paul, Apostle of Christ even two years later. We continue to see the film break into new territories all around the world. It performed particularly well in the USA, Brazil, Mexico, and South Korea. We worked on a small budget for a historical piece, so I am very proud of the cast, crew, and everyone involved in the film that it was able to have such a commercial impact. Artistically, I am very proud of the film and I believe it offers a very powerful and unique look at the very end of Paul’s life. I know it is the type of film that will continue to resonate with audiences for many years to come. 

2. Let’s go back in time. You did “The Frozen”, released in  2012, and then “The Last Light”, out in 2014. Then “Full  of Grace”, a full-length about The Virgin Mary, came out, and you ended up being recognized for something completely different. What happened in between? Tell us the story behind the big change.  

It’s a very good question. I grew up Catholic, but I never wanted to make “Christian films.” In fact, I very much walked away from my faith for a number of years, being caught up in the Hollywood pursuit of sex, drugs, and rock n roll it could be said. After I made “The Last Light” I was getting a lot of attention from studios. People in the industry were saying, the next one is going to be big, you’re going to crack through the ceiling and make it big. But that’s not what God had in mind. I had a very big ego, and some big problems in my life. God was merciful and gracious and took me and my family (I had a wife and one daughter at the time) on a very long journey. All the work that I was getting dried up. There was nothing. And we were running out of money and still no jobs. God closed every door. I was very angry for awhile. We actually became homeless for a few months and eventually had to leave Los Angeles to go live with our parents. It seemed that the dream was over and I did not understand what happened. But God had a bigger plan in mind. There was a long period where I was “trying to be famous” but God came to me and said, “I want you to just be faithful to Me. Go where I tell you to go. Do what I tell you to do.” And I felt God really putting on my heart, this thought of “Tell My story. Tell the story of my people, my church.” So that is what happened to get me to Full of Grace. It was a very small film, but a very beautiful experience of being connected with our Lady and her experience as a Mother to Christ. I am grateful that my plans did not work out and God’s plans did.

3. How you came up with “Paul Apostle of Christ” as the next subject to do? What made you decide to do this project?  

It is difficult to explain, but it was certainly the Holy Spirit. After Full of Grace I just had it on my heart that the next story I was supposed to tell was Paul’s story. I really felt God nudging me to do it and the same producers from Full of Grace were very excited and supportive of me diving into it. Again, God’s plans were perfect. When I spoke to Sony Pictures and Rich Peluso and Josh Nadler at Affirm Films, they informed me that they had been looking for a long time for the right Paul film. 

4. What is the key message of the movie, the biggest meaning behind the frame, according to you?  

There are many messages of faith in the film and I am very happy when I hear all the themes that different audiences have felt impacted them the most. How to discern our faith in difficult times is something that I have heard a lot from audiences. For me, I was always very moved by the understanding of the early church that suffering has a purpose to glorify Christ. Today in the church we do not like to suffer. We want to be comfortable. But Christ says we must deny ourselves and to pick up our cross and follow Him. This is what Paul and the early church did without question. They preached the truth of the Gospel amidst persecution and even death. Many of our brothers and sisters around the world are experiencing this right now. And we must remember the sacrifice and strong faith that it takes and let that inspire our own faith in the West. 

5. You are both the director and the author of the  screenplay. I can presume it must have been a pretty personal project to made. Out of the many aspects of the story of Saint Paul, which one attracted your attention the most, first as man, then as director? 

Paul has always fascinated me from a human perspective. His conversion, his abandonment of his own will and plans. His complete trust and commitment to God’s holy work. What I was moved by his story is the idea that all say to ourselves “I am not good enough to become a Saint.” But Paul teaches us that anyone can become a Saint. As a director, I was inspired by the idea of doing another historical piece set in Rome. It was an incredibly sober moment towards the end of Nero’s reign. Christians were being burned in the streets and thrown to the lions in the circus. Yet, they went singing and praising God. I wanted to capture that and remind us today what the early church experienced.  

6. Did you feel in some ways inspired and supported by God to proceed and to make this project real? 

Yes. It was completely driven by the Holy Spirit because I did not know what part of the story I should tell, or what I should say to the audiences. So I trusted that God would fill in the gaps for me.

7. Let’s talk about the pre-production phase of the movie. Today it is not easy to produce, to promote and to deliver a religious-based movie. These kind of movies  only find place in the niche market. Was it hard to find  the legal opportunities and the various resources to  make the movie possible? 

Yes, agreed. Though it is encouraging that now it is very clear there is a large international audience that wants to see these types of films. We had such great support from Sony Pictures and Affirm Films. They always believed in the script and the project from the first time I showed it to them, that it made the process very enjoyable and collaborative. They understood what the Apostle Paul means to the international audience and they were very respectful of all that surrounded that.

8. I shall presume you went through the delicate process of reading and exploring the Pauline epistles, the Holy Scripture in general and the story of saint Paul. What was the most interesting part about it? Any problem with the writing process?  

Both for Full of Grace and Paul, Apostle of Christ always my first step was to explore and get very familiar with the scriptures. That is the most important. God speaks through the scriptures, even today. So that is where much of the inspiration comes from. After this, my next step is to read as many books as possible, both theologically focused, but also just historical focused so I can understand even more. The most difficult part of this script was how to capture the spirit of Paul in a two hour film. Obviously his life could make many films or a television series because so much has happened. So I had to be very prayerful and discerning about which part of Paul’s life to focus on. In early scripts it was too much, too many pages, too long of a film. But with more and more research and praying, it became clear to me that the best way to tell Paul’s story for a modern audience was to start at the end of his life. 

9. How was choosing the right actor, one for each character of the script?  

Casting is always very difficult because there are so many factors at play. Meaning, there is always a financial question, then a question of schedules, who is available and who is not. We thought of many individuals for many of the roles, but Patricia DiCerto, our casting director was always offering unique thoughts to help us think outside of the box and pick who would be perfect for the role, not just someone that the audience would recognize. I love the process, being able to bring to life the words on the page through the actors is a real joy. I believe we found some amazing talent that brought to life characters from scripture in an authentic and powerful way.

10. Had James Faulkner any clue of who he was going to play, when he first got the opportunity?  

James had a decent idea of who Paul was from his much younger days as a school boy at an Anglican school I believe. (he can correct me if I’m wrong!) But the most important part of James Faulkner’s incredible transformation was his willingness to be open to “hearing from Paul.” James from the very beginning knew how much this man meant to the christian worldwide audience and he wanted to be incredibly respectful of that. James is an incredible talent. One of the best in the world in my opinion. You see how he wasn’t playing the part. He was letting the part play him. Something very transformational and powerful came through that. There are still scenes in the movie I watch and I wonder to myself, “who is in the room?” That is not James… “Surely, that is Paul!”

11. You have had the opportunity to work with Jim Caviezel, an extraordinary talent who interpreted Jesus in “The Passion”. How was working with him? Were you afraid the Jim could be more Jesus then Luke?  

Jim Caviezel is incredibly focused and takes his work very seriously. I was never afraid that he would not capture the role of Luke because of that. Jim was always very dedicated to getting the role just right. Again, we were very lucky with this cast that everyone knew that bringing these characters to life was a very big deal for the audience so they really all put the extra time and energy in. Obviously with Jim, you also get his faith perspective, it becomes a prayer for him in a way so it’s a different process than you would normally go through with an actor.

12. I think that the movie of Gibson is a brilliant example of  how to make a faith-based movie, especially when it comes to technical construction, historical accuracy and visual effects. It might helps directors to embrace  high-quality ideas. Have you took any inspiration from it, be it artistically or technical? 

I agree completely. Yes, my goal with my films is to always make something that resonates with the reality of faith and not the supposed reality. Too many Christian films make Christianity look easy and cheap, and for me, it is not representative of life as a Christian. But the Passion showed the reality of faith. The reality of the cost of faith, the ultimate sacrifice. I know that many people say the film is too violent, but I do not believe you can escape the violence of the cross and still understand what Christ has done for you. You must understand the brutal violence to understand the incredible beauty of it all. 

13. Otherwise, what movies influenced you the most in the making of?  

I did use The Passion of the Christ as inspiration, certainly in a high quality, artistic sense. From a deeper human perspective, a dissection of humanity and the questions of man and faith, I always find inspiration in my favorite filmmaker. Andrei Tarkovsky. I believe in his films he is always wanting to find the answer with the audience, he is exploring his own humanity, mortality, and faith. He does not come to the audience and say “listen to me, I will give you an answer.” He says, “Let us explore this deep question together. Perhaps we will find an answer together.” This is the difference of sacred art and bad christian art. Bad christian art says “I have a message, here it is, accept it.”… Sacred art says “The message is beyond us, let us explore the mystery together.”

14. In these days of confusion, where faith has been marginalized and Jesus, Our Lord and Savior, seems to have been forgotten, what could saint Paul the apostle  tell to the world, in 2020?  

We must remember that faith is forged in the reality of suffering. Faith is not forged from the comfort of the pews and the coffee shop. For too long the church has assumed that more people will come to Christ if we make it easy, but that is not what the world is desperate for. The world is desperate for meaning, for purpose, for something mysterious that is beyond them. When we water down the faith and water down Christ, we build churches full of soft souls. Gone at the first obstacle, the first struggle. Saint Paul shows the world what abandonment to the heart of God and the Gospel truly looks like. It costs everything. But look at the fruit, look at the joy. It is a purpose beyond what the world can give you.

15. Can you tell us something about your next project? After “Paul Apostle of Christ”, it would be nice to see another faith-based movie. The italian catholic romans saints could be an interesting subject..  

James Faulkner and I have just finished a film called All Those Small Things. While it is not a biblical or saint film, it deals with mortality, and asks the question of what is our purpose here. Beyond that, I am always trying to be available to where Christ calls me next. 

Our interview is over. It’s my pleasure to keep promoting your movies. Thank you very much! May you find Grace, Joy and Salvation in Christ through Mary.  

Ad Jesum per Mariam 

Cheers! God bless you!


You can either buy or rent the movie, through digital platforms or retail sellers 🙂 Enjoy your vision!

2 pensieri su “My exclusive interview with Andrew Hyatt, director of “Paul Apostle of Christ”: a beautiful conversation

  1. The kabbala of chariot mysticism stands on the distinction that, unlike a wagon, a chariot rolls upon two wheels – daat & t’shuva. Daat separates and distinguishes between external events from internal feelings and reactions. T’shuva separates how a person dedicates his or her life before HaShem in the coming year. The wheels within the Shemone Esri have gone full circle with the annual reading of the Torah beginning anew with בראשית ונח. Both the Torah and tefilla begin with the k’vanna of the general Big Picture concepts of faith, prior to delving into the specifics of the Cohen family of Avraham.“The Existence of God.” What evidence do atheists accept as valid? The Koran, the New Testament, the Hebrew T’NaCH, or perhaps the faiths as taught from India, Japan, and China?

    The Koran declares “Only one God lives”. This bold declaration blatantly negates the Sinai 2nd commandment: “Do not worship other Gods”. By logical inference: if only one God lives, which the Muslims name as Allah, why does the Sinai revelation command not to worship other Gods? Shall we attempt to declare that Par’o of ancient Egypt worshiped only Allah? Therefore based upon the false declaration of Monotheism made by the prophet of the Koran, who declared himself a prophet on the order of T’NaCH prophets, the Koran strict monotheism stands totally debunked.

    The name New Testament makes reference to the foundation of Torah faith known as “the brit”. The first word of the Torah בראשית this word contains within its 6 letters ברית אשbrit fire. The translation of brit into English, based upon the stories of the Avot: alliance. The opening Book of the Torah directly and repeatedly addresses the subject of cutting political alliances. The skill required to cut a political alliance with others, applies equally to us as it did to them.

    The problem with the ”New Testament”, that collection of books never once brings the Name revealed in the 1st Commandment at Sinai. The Name – exists as the living Spirit, and not just another word. Despite the declaration otherwise, as found in the opening pages of the book of John’s gospels. Moshe the prophet forbade pronunciation of the Name, according to the grammar of its four letters. The opening account of Creation, the Name blew his Spirit unto clay, transforming this clay into the living man – named Adam. Pronouncing the Name, as revealed at the Sinai revelation, perverts and defiles the Spirit of the Name unto that of a common word. The kabbalah of writing a Safer Torah stands upon this fundamental distinction.

    Never in all the pages of the New Testament do any of these Greek books bring the Name as revealed at Sinai. Translation of words from language to language, compares words with other words. But you can not translate a Spirit by making it into a word. HaShem does not compare to anything in the earth, heavens or Seas. Words simply do not breath life. Quote Shakespeare to dead people and they remain dead. To cut a Torah brit alliance requires swearing a Torah oath using the Name. This kabbalah learns from Moshe the prophet. Therefore the new covenant of both the New Testament & the Koran, totally debunked. Both counterfeit faiths failed to discern that brit means alliance.

    A proof that brit does not translate into covenant: Where do the Gods ‘Father’ & Allah live? The counterfeit religions teach that their Gods live in the Heavens. The brit alliance teaches that HaShem lives within the hearts of the Cohen nation. The mitzva of tefilla, based upon the halacha exists as a duty of the heart. The halacha requires that a Yechudi face toward Jerusalem in order to teach the mussar that a Man must turn unto his heart. Torah faith teaches that HaShem lives within the hearts of his Cohen people. The brit faith established by Avram at the brit between the pieces, our father made an alliance that HaShem lives within the hearts of the Cohen seed of Avram. This brit faith defines the idea of the ‘Chosen People’.

    Torah commands the opposite of Muslim Monotheism, it validates the existence of many Gods. Clearly the Hindus and Chinese peoples never swore a Torah brit alliance. Atheists in Russia, or Europe, or America, shall they make unilateral declarations which negate the Gods which these billions of people worship? Hubris arrogance, every atheist I ever met from Russia, Europe, or America does not speak the language of Hindu, Japan, or China, much less Vietnam or Korea etc etc etc. The Books these millions upon millions of people, by which they base their belief in their Gods, these above mentioned hubris arrogant atheists from Russia, Europe, and America, their negative worship only their Ego beliefs, which seeks to invalidate the traditions of peoples whom they do not know.Atheism for this reason stands totally debunked by simple humility and logic.

    Whatבראשית ב:ז – ויפח באפיו נשמת חיים ויהי האדם לנפש חיה … ועץ החיים בתוך הגן ועץ הדעת טוב ורעfaith does this teach touching the chosen Cohen nation? It seems to me, by the sh’itta taught to me from my Rav, that rabbi Akiva derived his kabbala of פרדס from
    ב: י – ונהר יצא מעדן להשקות את הגן ומשם יפרד והיה לארבעה ראשים.

    The פרדס kabbala of rabbi Akiva, addresses the meaning of the revelation of the Oral Torah logic system revealed unto Moshe at Mt Horev, 40 days after the sin of the Golden Calf; specifically: Moshe has died, who will teach us the rest of the Torah revelation at Sinai? Moshe derived through logical inference the 611 commandments which he commanded, as his primary source commentary to the opening two Sinai commandments, which the Cohen nation accepted upon the soul lives of all generations of our children, as our faith worship unto HaShem who brought the Cohen nation out of Egypt.

    The Big Picture concept of faith as taught by the Parsha of בראשית which defines the k’vanna of the opening daat blessing of the first ברכה within the 13 middle blessings of the Shemone Esri, this concept of faith, weighs the commitment of the generations to walk in tohor before HaShem. The subject of tohor applies strictly and only unto the Cohen nation. Neither Goyim or Yidden who assimilate and kiss the calves of foreign non Jewish cultures and customs, this huge branch of Humanity has no concept or idea what tohor means. Keeping the commandments as the ‘sign’ of the brit, most essentially requires that the Cohen people commit before HaShem only to strive to do avodat HaShem while breathing tohor spirits.

    Doing mitzvot לשמה understands that the din of כרת comes and cuts off Israel from Israel when ever the Cohen people behave with hubris arrogance and attempt to do avodat HaShem while breathing tuma spirits. On par with a woman, attempting tohorat ha’biet who goes to the mikveh while holding a dead rat in her hand; comes out of the mikveh and declares to her husband that she has made herself tohor. As this example invalidates the mitzva of tohorat ha’biet, so too observance of all the תרי”ג mitzvot.

    ג: יד – ויאמר ה’ אלהים אל הנחש כי עשית זאת ארור אתה מכל הבהמה ומכל חית השדה וכו’.

    The נחש teaches a central Torah משל. The נמשל to wit, the tuma Yatzir Ha’Ra lives within the hearts of all bnai brit souls – unto all eternity – together with the tohor Yatzir Ha’Tov. HaShem judges the struggle of the 2 Yatzirot within our heart in each and every generation. The story of king David and Bathsheba, teaches the identical mussar commandment. Learning Torah requires that students ask: What mussar does the TorahNaCH command each and every generation?
    דכתיב ג:יט – כי עפר אתה ואל עפר תשוב.

    Xtian theology teaches of a physical resurrection from the dead The daat of “soul”, by Torah faith, by contrast refers to the generations of the bnai brit offspring, the Olam Ha’Bah of the Cohen nation. How many children did Avram have when he cut the brit between the pieces?

    The story of Cain teaches the mussar of the tuma inheritance which the first murderer caused his children to inherit. The identical tuma which women who abort their children cause their seed to inherit; the most basic and fundamental of Torah curses which denounces an earth filled with violence and injustice. A simple proof: all women who abort their babies, such women never kept the mitzva of tohorat ha’biet. T’shuva, no regret or remorse can ever atone for the crime of abortion.

    בראשית ה:כט – ויקרא את שמו נח לאמר זה ינחמנו ממעשנו ומעצבון ידינו מן האדמה אשר אררה ה’.

    The 2nd wheel of the mystic Divine Chariot – t’shuva. The dedication within our hearts to keep the commandments לשמה, meaning through the dedication of tohor middot unto HaShem, do the generations of the Cohen nation do t’shuva from g’lut? The Cohen nation commits to restrict avodat HaShem in the Name of tohor middot which we breath from the midsts of our hearts. Tefilla – strictly a matter of the heart. A man who does not discern between the tohor/tuma spirits within his heart, such a man cannot do t’shuva לשמה – meaning in the Name of tohor middot dedicated unto HaShem.

    Tonight Yidden light the first of the Hanukkah lights. The Gemara of Shabbat teaches the famous dispute between Bet Shammai and Bet Hillel concerning lighting the lights of Hanukkah. This famous dispute always puzzled me, what difference does it make whether one begins with lighting 8 candles the first night or only one? What does lighting the lights of Hanukkah have to do with the life and death struggle against Greek cultural domination of the tiny Jewish State?

    The B’hag, whose Torah shined during the waning domination of the Gaonim schools. The Reshonim scholarship, followed the lights of the Gaonim schools. The B’hag holds that the rabbinic mitzvot of both Purim and Hanukkah, that their “light” shines as part of the 613 Commandments Israel received from HaShem and MosheRabbenu.

    The Rambam denounced the “light” by which the B’hag directed the generations of Israel. The B’hag links Hanukkah, as does the Talmud to Shabbat. He held that lighting the lights of Shabbat – this mitzva – too a Torah commandment; its light shines on par with the Torah mitzvot of Purim and Hanukkah. To comprehend the “light” shone by the Torah of the B’hag, Yidden must discern the common denominator which the Houses of Hillel and Shammai. Their Torah communicated the k’vanna of the mitzva of Hannukah as expressed through the rabbinic halachic ritual of lighting the lights of Hannukah throughout the generations.

    The Greek empire conquered the Persian empire, which uprooted the Babylonian empire, who destroyed Jerusalem and expelled the Yechudim from the lands ruled by the king of Yechuda from the House of David. Greek hostility to the Torah centered, not upon the Written Torah, but rather the Oral Torah. This latter Torah “light”, expresses itself through a unique t’shuva, by which Yechudim, following the error of the golden calf, dedicate the souls of their children, to interpret the language of the Written Torah by relying strictly upon the Oral Torah logic format alone. This Oral Torah “light”, it alone guides how the Cohen nation understands the k’vanna of the Written Torah Constitution of the Jewish Republic.

    The Greek schools of philosophy taught a completely different logic formats. The logic of Plato and Aristotle overshadow the ancient Greek contribution of knowledge to the present day. Yidden, humiliated from our disgrace of the avoda zarah of the Golden Calf, our forefathers swear a Torah oath, to all generations. The Yechudim people sanctify as our eternal dedication unto the Torah revelation — to interpret the Written Torah by the “lights” of Oral Torah logic alone.

    The lights of Shabbot, the dedication to strive to achieve shalom among family and friends. The lights of reading the Megillah on Purim, the dedication of tohor, opposed by tuma middot unto HaShem. The Book of Ester, the only Book of the T’NaCH which lacks the Name of HaShem. The Name המן and המלך they teach a רמזGematria of tohor as opposed to tuma middot. The k’vanna of “kingship” (To make a Torah blessing requires the Name and Kingship), as a king stands as the head of a nation so too the dedication of tohor, as opposed to tuma, middot unto HaShem – middot express the faith unto the revelation of the Torah throughout all and every generation. The mussar of the Book of Ester teaches middot, expressed through the contrast between Mordecai and Haman.

    In similar fashion the Gemara of Shabbot, teaches the k’vanna of lighting the lights of Hannukah, expressed through the contrast of opinions expressed by the Houses Bet Shammai and Bet Hillel. What defines the Oral Torah? Logic stands upon the יסוד/foundation of Order. The Order of the Torah logic system contrasts with the Order of the ancient Greek logic formats which those famous ancient Greek philosophers developed.

    You can not achieve justice, when Western leaders refer to civilian ‘colored’ casualties as “collateral damage” in their ‘police actions’ which shape the internal affairs of foreign societies. A fundamental issue of the Western interventions and imperialism in the Middle East and North Africa, Western society dominates, even conquers Arab and Muslim societies. But the stark contrast: Arabs and Muslims, to a large degree remain strong in their faith in the Koran; whereas Western societies to an ever growing percentage embrace the scientific secular model as their central supporting column of faith. Western civilization has abandoned Xtian theology, due to the corrupt reputation the church’s evil and perverse actions promoted throughout the Ages. Today, Western societies view the Church on par with ancient Greek and Roman polytheism and worship of mythical Gods. The question stands: How did the unfaithful conquer and defeat the faithful? A fundamental question that has no easy answers for the folks, which the West refers simply as “collateral damage”.

    What causes the disaster of internal revolution and Civil War, to rank as the worst natural disaster to any people or civilization throughout history? When the “ethical containment force” that makes a peoples’ culture and customs separate and unique from all other peoples and societies, when this “social fabric” rips apart and becomes a tattered rag blowing in the winds of war, generally – the first American Civil War excluded – with the collapse of the authority of the Central Government. The consequences of social and political anarchy, that foreign governments intervene in the internal operations and government of any society in the throws of internal revolution and Civil War.

    Lincoln, his illegal decision to initiate and invade the Confederate States, takes the first American Civil War out of the picture of virtually all other internal revolutions and Civil Wars. Because Civil War, by general definition, effectively means the collapse of Central Government order and stability. Even still, without the leadership of Henry Seward as Lincoln’s Secretary of State, the Palmerston government would have most probably recognized the Confederate, ‘States Rights’ revolt against Lincoln’s extreme anti-Jeffersonian ideas of democracy.Judge the wrestle by which enemies or allies build strength, dignity, and respect. In all matters of din’a nefshot – Torah law requires no less than 2 witnesses. One witness in any Capital Crimes case – acceptance or reliance upon a single witness – tuma. Tuma, commonly expressed as l’shon ha’rah or mo’zteh shem rah.

    How does Israel differ from other nations who experience a terrorist attack?

    “DUHOK, Iraqi Kurdistan region,— A convoy of KDP Peshmerga
    militants came under attack by PKK militants when trying to enter
    PKK areas in the Chamalke district in Duhok province in Iraqi
    Kurdistan following a roadside bomb that exploded next to the
    KDP forces. The attack resulted in one death and three injuries,
    KDP-affiliated Kurdistan24 TV. Head of Culture and Media Culture
    Department at the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG ) Peshmerga
    Affairs Ministry Babkir Faqe Ahmed told the KDP official media outlet
    that the PKK fighters fired from far distance and it was not a direct attack
    on Peshmerga forces”.

    The ‘blood libels’, pogroms came after and followed the 1st crusade war crimes. German Jewry slaughtered across, perhaps most, kingdoms or fiefhoods in all the German lands; the soul of the German people who conquered Rome – barbarians. What contrasts/opposes, perhaps mirrors or opposites, criminal violence? Righteous Court Room rulings judged by a lateral court 3 Judge system. Prosecution and Defense judges of the 3 man Court, these Court Judges comprise the opposing Court system of all Talmudic legal understanding. Two Yatzirot “wrestle” within the hearts of the bnai brit Cohen nation – light unto the nations — includes all Yechudim residing in g’lut.

    Justice judges l’shon ha’rah/motze sham rah contrasted by tohor middot. In order to determine who has an obligation to compensate for damages. Who leads the hearts of men? Upon these scales — all Nations – throughout all generations – stand in judgment.

    As a possible example: the Cohen Court system judges the domains of the North African Trade Route. Israel calls to all Sahara nations, help build a deep river to connect Mediterranean Sea unto Salt Sea. This action would bless both Israel and Jordan; the canal which connects the Mediterranean to the salt sea, ocean acidification permits easy electrolysis which converts water into hydrogen and oxygen gases. Comparable to the usage of plastic, in the sense that plastic transports foods and goods easier and cheaper than transport in burlap bags on the backs of camels. Israel and Egypt could cut a salt canal from the Mediterranean Sea.

    Bring rain water to the Sahara desert, and make North Africa bloom. While building such a deep canal, remember Mark Twain’s tales of the Mississippi. Israel dedicates to train refugee Balestinians, in agriculture farm work. Revert the electrolysis gases back to water by means of rain. Build a topsoil across the Sahara, plant trees upon all and every hilltop. Cause a rainforest to dominate the Sahara.

    Such a work requires the dedication of multiple generations – no less than three. No less than 3 generations qualifies as a strong connection alliance. Shalom requires Trust. Trust among nations never begins till a ‘good eye’ prevails.An act of honor, Israel shall never unilaterally expel the Arab stateless refugees from any lands of our Republic, like as did the Europeans; they oppressed Jewish stateless refugees for over 2000 years, and no European court ever condemned the Church fathers. Justice means providing a tohor medium which facilitates airing disputes over damages, and both opposing parties accepting the Judicial rulings, g’lut Jewry never received such an option by any European government.

    Justice has a definition of – determining restitution for damages. Something similar to ‘insurance’. All mine or partially mine? Jerusalem – just for example. Israel rejects the Nazi consequence which divided Berlin at the start of the Cold War. How many Germans fought and died in Hitler’s War? Arabs rejected both UN mandate alternatives, Republic or 2 nations. Arabs lost two major wars to throw the Jews into the Sea, both 1948 and 1967 they started.

    Honor: Arafat declared that the forefathers of the Arab refugees in Israel, the Philistines. Balestinian rhetoric declares that from these non Arabs Philistines, that they fathered the Balestinian people? Shaking my head, since when did Europeans sire Arabs? The post war mandate given to Britain by the League of Nations, an international assembly established after WW1. The League named this mandate, based upon the 1917 Balfour Declaration ‘Palestine’. A European name.

    During the British mandate, the only folk who called themselves Palestinians, Jews. Arabs ‘settlers’ moved to the mandate territories searching for work. Had they referred to themselves as Palestinians, this would imply that Arabs validated the Balfour Agreement, which all Arab leaders fervently rejected. Important to repeat, the League Palestine mandate stands upon the Balfour Agreement as its foundation.

    After receiving the League awarded mandate, almost immediately Churchill imposed the Churchill White Paper, June 3rd 1922. Shaking my head. Two points, straight line. Judge. 23rd of May 1939, Neville Chamberlain and his response to the 1936–1939 Arab revolt in Palestine – 2nd White Paper which totally negated the foundation upon which stands the League of Nations mandate awarded to post WW1 Britain, the Balfour Declaration came as a result of Weizman’s success of making acetone from the starch in cereal grains. This solvent the British Army and Royal Navy required to fire their artillery shells.

    Britain having won the war, now abandoned their Balfour Declaration ally. A sacrificial gift dedicated to the Nazi Gods of War. In like and similar fashion, Xtian nations of Europe broke faith with the New Testament. If a mother has the right to kill a 9 month pre-born baby, then that same mother has the same right to kill that 9 month post-birth baby. Better for a new born mother to see and reject her child, than to vacuum abort the life of her child that she will never see. Responsibility requires accountability. Accountability builds a reputation. Post Shoah seals the evil reputation of Europe. Chamberlain imposed a two state solution upon Czechoslovakia in 1938. Two points equals a straight line. Third witness: Pope Pius XII surrendered the Jews of Rome to the Nazis. Western secularism has rejected the God of the New Testament.

    Since the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Beijing has vehemently opposed separatist movements abroad to logically support its opposition to secessionist activities within China. Beijing officially considers separatism as one of the “three evil forces” besides terrorism and extremism. This reflects its uncompromising devotion to maintaining its territorial integrity at all costs, primarily concerning Taiwan, Tibet, Xinjiang, and Inner Mongolia. China avers that self-determination should not necessarily involve national independence and that stateless nations should not necessarily form or be given states.

    Contrast Chinese domestic rhetoric with its imperialist foreign policy toward the Middle East. China upholds the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, mutual non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful co-existence! Yet concerning Middle East hot-spots, the Chinese system promotes “peace and the reasonable settlement of disputes through dialogue and negotiation”, emphasizing the role of the UN Security Council. China supports an independent state of Balestine with full sovereignty, based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. This obvious double standard, likewise expresses EU Middle East hypocrisy as well.

    Nietzsche teaches that God is dead. Which God? The Xtian God. Mythology has an enduring popularity. But mythical persons, by definition ,having never lived. Allah? The prophet of that God, thought Jesus physically lives as a T’NaCH prophet. The Koran uses that word, prophet, quite a lot. Alas like all religious rhetoric, the Koran failed to even once define the term prophet, just as the New Testament failed to understand the Torah definition for brit. The New Testament likewise employs the never defined rhetoric word: love. Both theologies of God. Alas neither this nor that ever once brings, or acknowledges, the Name revealed in Israel at Sinai: the 1st Commandment. Proof: that both theologies profane the 2nd Sinai commandment. What do either give for a defense?

    Bill Kerr Sr. used to tell me that a Man did not know the subject he debated if he could not argue persuasively, on both sides of the dispute. Both alien theologies excluded the Name, the first Sinai commandment. Neither gives as their reason, their fear of the kabbala of Moshe the prophet which forbids the pronunciation of the Name according to its letters. Neither do either of these rival belief systems about God, teach that their scriptures bring pronouns of the unpronounceable Name, which the Torah calls middot. Why the command not to pronounce this Name? The defense upon which both religious rhetoric systems? Both introduce new Gods, based upon the belief that the Name of HaShem exists as just another word, and can therefore be translated as either ‘Father’ or Allah.

    This ‘religious rhetoric’ has no foundation. Both mythologies do not know, much less even consider, the basic reason why Moshe the prophet forbade all persons to pronounce the Name? According to the Gospel of John: the Word and the Name are one, the Word was God. Therefore the defense of employment of ‘the Father’ pronoun takes a hard blow because HaShem breaths the Spirit of his Name into the flesh, causing all generations of Man to live.

    But ‘the Father’ has the counter: Do not middot, such as ‘King’ pronoun metaphors of the Name? The story of Jesus, simply a משל/parable metaphor.? Jesus instructs on leadership. Does this transform the Gospels unto prophetic mussar? Both religions teach a fundamental belief that Jesus physically lived on this earth. The comparison to middot does not hold because middot most essentially functions – expressed through logic. The unique logic system known as Oral Torah. The Name – the Spirit of life, lives not a word. The Name breaths Spirit unto all generations of Adama clay – ‘HaShem’ breathes the Spirit of His Name, causing all life to live. Therefore the Name exemplifies the Spirit of life. Try to pronounce the Spirit of Life, and cause their by inanimate clay to live.

    The Name lives as Spirit, and not a simple printed word upon a page. This basic distinction separates a Safer Torah from a printed Torah book. In similar fashion the k’vanna requirement to daa’ven, most essentially requires that a man distinguishes the Name Spirit from all other words. The substitute word employed by the pronunciation of the tongue, Adonoi.

    The mitzva of blowing the shofar – serves as further witness, mitzvot learn from other mitzvot. The dedication of spirit learns from the Akada ram’s horn. Life not death. The question that Yitzak asked Avraham … this same question Ishmael did likewise ask the servant of Avraham, circumcised 2nd after Avraham? The blowing of the shofar signaled that the Name provided a ram in the place of Avramham’s son – Yitzak. The mitzva of blowing the shofar on Rosh HaShanna announces the din of life rather than death. This mitzva teaches how to pronounce the Spirit of the Name of life.

    Pardon implies a successful defense. Does this mean that these two counterfeit religions, both based upon mythology, that the worship of either Xtian or Islamic God does not violate the 2nd Sinai commandment: not worship other Gods?The ‘prophet’ Mohammad permits eating camel flesh. The Torah directly forbids consumption of both camel flesh, together with any of its by-products, such as milk. In the order of succession, camel precedes hog. The Torah establishes the foundation of the Cohen people upon tohora. Muslims do not eat pork, but do eat camel, or camel by-products, like milk. Muslim theology teaches a strict monotheism. Neither Xtianity nor Islam teach the faith of the Cohen nation. The faith of the Cohen nations stands upon the foundation of tohor middot. The strict monotheism of Islam violates the Sinai 2nd commandment. If only one God, then no reason to command: do not worship other Gods.

    .בראשית\ברית אש this רמז helps to define the k’vanna of the 1st word of the Torah. The first word of the Torah contrasts with the revelation of the Spirit Name at Sinai. Words, so to speak, set the destiny course of the Cohen nation: ראש בית/Head of House, ב’ ראשית/Two Beginnings. The Sinai Spirit revelation, by contrast, inspires the conscious Will to act. The genesis of two opposing Yatzirot within the Cohen people’s heart – Brit – an alliance requires no less than two partners.

    The Koran never once refers to the spirituality of the oath alliance. Both religions of avoda zara confuse the meaning of brit. Brit does not translate as – covenant. An oath requires swearing in the Name. How does a person swear in the Name? Since the Name does not live as a word. Mitzvot defines mitzvot, comparable to metal sharpens metal.

    A mitzva originates back to the prophets, it teaches mussar. Mussar requires the 13 tohor middot which Moshe the prophet heard from the Spirit//Name, at Horev: on Yom Kippor – 40 days after the avoda zarah of the Golden Calf. The counterfeit religions do not teach mussar, but rather theology. Both tuma faiths deny the Oral Torah revelation of middot. Our Sages teach that Israel approached Aaron at the crisis of the golden calf. But what happened to the other judges of the Great Sanhedrin? The people asked Aaron, because he alone remained alive of the Great Sanhedrin judges.

    Both Aggadita and Midrash teach that the people thought Moshe the prophet had died. Up to this point, of the Sinai revelation, Israel had only accepted only the first 2 Commandments. Therefore the people said to Aaron, Moshe has passed from this world, who shall teach us the rest of the Torah? All of the other 611 commandments of the Torah, Moshe the prophet logically derive from the first two Sinai commandments. All Torah commandments teach mussar, because mussar applies equally to all generations. This oral Torah logic system, Moshe the prophet, heard at Mt. Horev – forty days after the Golden Calf avoda zarah. From this Oral Torah logic system of middot, Moshe the prophet, derived the other 611 commandments.

    Neither this nor that religious rhetoric belief system(s) can discern the distinction between Torah commandments and prophetic mitzvot. How much more so the distinction between prophetic mitzvot and rabbinic mitzvot//halachot. Do both this and that religious rhetoric mythology formats – deserve pardon for Avodah Zarah? Therefore, based upon the 2nd Sinai commandment, multiple Gods live. Yet Nietzsche declares God is dead. Which God died? Post Shoah, judging the behavior of believers of both tenets of faith, both Jesus son of Zeus and Allah have died.

    The Lies Conflating the Holocaust and The Promised Land – by FirstOneThrough.

    Quote/UnQuote:

    Many people believe that the world endorsed the notion of a Jewish State because of the terrible tragedy which befell the Jews. While some countries may have indeed voted at the United Nations in favor of recognizing Israel because of the Holocaust, its reestablishment was sponsored by the global community years before World War II.

    Response:

    2/3rds of the UN member states voted in favor of Jewish self determination. Arab rejection of the Partition Plan demonstrated that Arab States cared a less about the Shoah. They had no interest in the establishment of a Balestinian state. Rather, Arab interests simply opposed any recognition of the existence of the Jewish state.

    Quote/UnQuote:

    First by the British in the 1917 Balfour Declaration, then by the League of Nations in the 1920 San Remo Agreement and the 1922 Mandate of Palestine, the leading countries of the world supported Jews reestablishing their homeland. In the late 1930’s the British specifically called for creating a distinct Jewish State in Palestine. All of these actions were taken before the genocide of European Jewry.

    Response:

    These examples fail to address British imperialism which negated the Balfour Declaration; specifically the Churchill White Paper followed by the Chamberlain White Paper, both of which uprooted and totally negated the League of Nations mandate awarded to post war Britain.
    The attempt to justify modern history based upon Biblical “prophecy”, merits no response whatsoever.

    Quote/UnQuote:

    Yet people confuse the nature of the Jewish State and how it came to be reestablished in 1948. The global community did not create Israel as a safe haven for Jews after the Holocaust; it voted to reestablish the Jewish homeland years before the Holocaust. Further, Zionists do not aspire for a Greater Israel from “the Nile to the Euphrates” the way anti-Semites at the United Nations claim; they want to live, pray and have autonomy in their small patch of the world promised to them by God.

    Response:

    The ‘global community’ did not fight the Israeli Independence War. Jewish leaders who directed Jewish defenses against Arab invasions of the newly declared Jewish State, lived their lives as secular non religious Jews. The 1948 Independence War shares nothing in common with the Xtian Crusades.

    Quote/UnQuote:

    The relevance of the Holocaust to Israel today is about underscoring the absolute imperative of Israel’s security, which means ensuring that the country’s neighbors cannot threaten it.

    Response:

    Nonsense. The Shoah emphatically proves the utter depravity and barbarism of the defiled European soul. Europe has abandoned the Xtian faith, their God died long ago. Hitler and his evil minions based their criminal barbarism upon ever repeated Church slanders, ghetto imprisonment war crimes against humanity, torture, and murder of Jews. No European Court, to this day, has ever condemned Church immorality throughout the Ages spanning over 2000 years of cruelty and oppression.

    Justice – a concept which lies outside of European consciousness – actively entails fair compensation for damages. Only post WW2 defeated Germany did the Allied powers agree to force them to pay some form of compensations for the Nazi war crimes which resulted in the violent torture and murder of 75% of European Jewry in less than 4 years.

    A bit more history of corrupt vile European barbarity and proof that their God has died long ago: based upon a poem written by T. S. Eliot -‘ Murder in the Cathedral.

    KNIGHTS!
    Where is Becket, the traitor to the King?
    Where is Becket, the meddling priest?
    Come down Daniel to the lions’ den,
    Come down Daniel for the mark of the beast.

    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
    Are you marked with the mark of the beast?

    Come down Daniel to the lions’ den,
    Come down Daniel and join in the feast.

    Where is Becket the Cheapside brat?
    Where is Becket the faithless priest?
    Come down Daniel to the lions’ den,
    Come down Daniel and join in the feast.

    In 1532 Henry VIII broke with Rome and proclaimed himself the head of the Anglican church. Henry VIII, during the Protestant Reformation, desecrated Becket’s shrine, destroyed his bones, and ordered that all mention of his name cease. The Protestant Reformation began in 1517.The Catholic Church started its Counter-Reformation in 1545. These conflicts culminated in the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648), which devastated Germany and killed one-third of its population, a mortality rate twice that of World War I.

    In 1517, Martin Luther’s nailed his Ninety-five Theses upon the church doors. It took only two months to spread throughout Europe with the help of the printing press, overwhelming the abilities of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and the papacy to contain it. In 1524–1525 peasants rose in revolt across southern and western Germany. Luther condemned the peasants and that revolt ended with the slaughter of peasants by both Lutheran and Catholic armies.

    Calvinism emerged in Geneva in the 1540s, preserved from its Catholic neighbors chiefly by Bern’s military strength. (Zurich, Bern and Glarus did not have treaties among themselves and were linked to each other only through the original cantons). Genevan Calvinism fused with the reformation of Zurich and northern Switzerland, which had been led by Zwingli and Heinrich Bullinger, to produce what became known as Reformed (with a capital R) Protestantism.Calvinism qualifies in some ways as a confession made for war. This movie rated R church, viewed the Catholic religion, specifically the Papacy, as the antichrist.

    The extraordinary extent, duration, bitterness, and bloodiness of the wars that raged across France, the Low Countries, the British Isles, and Germany in the 90 years after 1560, all stems from strikingly evil competing theologies. In 1572 a targeted group of assassinations, Catholic mob violence, comparable to pogroms, directed against the Huguenots (French Calvinist Protestants). A leopard doesn’t change its stripes, and an apple never falls far from its tree. The genetic inherited nature of European cruelty and barbarism merits nothing but utter contempt.

    Paris August 1572, some 3,000 Huguenots slaughtered, and probably another 7,000 more slain in a dozen massacres that followed in provincial cities across France. Periodically from 1612 to 1629. English, German, Scottish, Dutch, and Swiss troops aided the Huguenots; Spanish, Italian, German, and Swiss troops aided the Catholics.

    By the seventeenth century the R rated Church effectivelyruled as the state church of the Netherlands; the Reformed agenda drove national policy. This meant that foreign Reformed communities aided their fellow Calvinists. Sebastian I of Portugal, his 1578 “crusade” against Muslims in Morocco ruined Portugal. Emperor Ferdinand II, the Holy Roman emperor of Bohemia, and of Hungary, his policies brought about the Thirty Years’ War—“Europe’s tragedy.”

    A war so destructive of both human life and property that it probably qualifies as the greatest disaster to affect Europe between the Black Death and the First World War.Confessional divisions eventually helped to spawn the British civil wars that began in 1640 and lasted from 1641 to 1651, wreaking destruction across the whole of the British Isles. This era of religious debauchery culminated in the Cromwell ‘Round Heads’ Civil War. In 1653 Cromwell dismissed the Rump Parliament by force. This conflict started a completely different act of State imposed oppression and rule. A validation of Nietzsche’s philosophy that the Xtian God is dead.

    Deicide, as expressed through the Gospels, does it command mussar? The Church chose theology over mussar. None the less, an interpretation of the Deicide Gospel story, a restatementelaboration of the Cain and Abel first murder. Those who pursue violence and murder they kill God just as depicted in the slaughter and cross Gospel story.

    Those who honor the sermon on the mount, they witness the resurrection from the dead of Jesus their God. Da’at and t’shuva, upon these two wheels drives Divine Chariot mysticism. Blessing and Curse. The curse – Deicide guilt upon all generations of baptized believers – this Torah curse clings to all generations who pursue cruel violence and criminal murder. Those generations, one and all, guilty of Deicide, on par with and similar too, the plot to murder the Jesus messiah rebellion against Oral Torah based halacha, as told in the Gospel accounts.
