Set of 3 religious symbols: islamic crescent, jewish David s star, christian cross

Have you ever stopped to consider words and phrases we too often take for granted?

Civilizations are real. The culture and civilization of Asia are very, very different from the culture of Africa. And the way things work in Afghanistan is very, very different from the way they work in Australia.

And our civilization is the Judeo-Christian Civilization.

Have you ever stopped to think what that phrase actually means? We aren’t just Christians, and the West isn’t something born in Europe.

Now, I could spend thousands of words defining what Judeo-Christian Civilization stands for, and I’d enjoy it too since my undergraduate degree was, in fact, Philosophy and Theology. But I’m not sure you would enjoy it! So let me stick to just what matters in this time of war in the birthplace of Civilization, the Middle East. 

Yes, the deep roots of the West lie in Ancient Greece, with the first philosophers and their love of wisdom and human reason. But their religion was an anthropomorphic polytheism in which their multiple Olympian deities were just as capricious, jealous, and selfish as their worshipers down on Earth.

And yes, the second ancient source of our culture comes from ancient Rome, with its predictable laws and its Senate, but it too was a brutal culture, as evinced by the mass slaughter of the Games in the Colosseum and the judicial murder of mass crucifixions.

But we are nothing as a civilization without Israel’s influence, and the act of ultimate love from a Jewish carpenter nailed to one of those Roman crosses.

Why? First, because the Jews were the chosen people, and instead of believing in many gods who were just pale reflections of themselves, they believed in one god, the True God, and they actually had a relationship with him, the Covenant. Greeks and Romans had no meaningful relationship with their gods except for obeisance.

Beyond that monotheistic reality, there was the unique nature of Jewish theology.

When the Bible speaks of Man made in the image of God – imago dei – that isn’t poetic flourish; that is the actual foundation of our whole civilization.

Ask yourself a simple question: why do have rights? Because a government decided? Or because your rights are divine, derived from your being made in the image of He who made you? In fact, just ask the Founding Fathers. There’s a reason we have “unalienable rights,” and they knew it. That’s why they mention the “Creator” in our founding document and do so with a capital ‘C.’

So, to that Republican student leader from Stanford who asked me in the Q&A after I spoke to the San Matteo Republicans at their Regan dinner last week, the war in Israel matters.

Your advice that we should just pray for Israel and do nothing more because “it’s not our war” is dead wrong. And your assertion to me afterward that we aren’t a “Judeo-Christian” civilization, but just a Christian one, and that Jesus was just an “ethnic Jew” couldn’t be more wrong. Just listen to the Messiah himself who told us: “I did not come to destroy the Law or Prophets but I am the fulfillment of them,” (Mat 5:17-20), a Jew who worshiped at the temple all his life. We are one civilization, and this Saturday, it was reinforced by a Jewish American.

I was at the veterinarian clinic with my Belgian shepherd, Killian. As I waited, an elderly gentleman with his 14-year-old German shepherd recognized me from my Newsmax show. We chatted at length about what happened on October 7th and what needs to happen to the savages of Hamas. He was born in Israel to Jewish parents who escaped Hungary before the war and moved to the reborn nation of Israel in 1948.

At the end of our chat, he tapped his side and said: “I’m ready for them. If they try and kill me, I’ll take a few of those bastards with me.”

I tapped my pocket in response and told my friend, Shlomo, “I’m ready too.”

One Civilization, one Fight, one Team.

Amen. I have always said we are all Jewish. I have laughed at, but something inside my gut or mind tells me this. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior. This world is going the wrong way. The United States needs to pray every single day and teach our children and adult children that GOD is the creator of mankind. We are standing by the Jewish people always. Stop funding colleges or any groups that protest against ISRAEL or JEWISH ✡️ PEOPLE. WE AS A CIVILIZATION CANNOT ALLOW ANOTHER HOLOCAUST. OCTOBER 7. 2023 should never have happened and cannot be undone, but WE NEED TO STOP IT NOW. AMERICA STAND UP FOR ISRAEL NOW!

This article is very well written. As a roman Catholic, I always saw ( or believed ) that am Christian and not Jewish at all. However your article points out quite well that we all have Jewish roots. Thank you for this intriguing article.

What is wrong with this current college generation. Many , if not most, we’re not around for 9/11 and many more we’re too young to know. But, let me tell you, there were no Jews piloting those airplanes and our failure as witnesses, is the fact that we are not demanding history as the current older generation learned it. In spite of the Obamas and Bidens in this world we are still the greatest country around and no amount of marching and vandalism is going to change that. As someone who was drafted in the 60s, I despised LBJ, but did my patriotic duty and Served in Vietnam. We don’t need the draft back but, a little dose of history, served proudly by patriotic Americans along with respect for Constitution might go a long war toward protecting our way of life “FROM MANY ONE”.

If you are a Muslim, their belief is to kill non-Muslims. So, once they are finished with Jewish people, they will go after the rest who are non-Muslims. It is in their Hadith to kill non-Muslims.

I personally get enraged watching “young” Americans riot more than just protest in support of Muslim Hamas Terrorists! We are a Christian Nation AND therefore have More in Common with the Jewish Faith and Nothing in Common with the Muslim Faith! Our public school system is riddled with teachers who obviously HATE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS and AMERICA NEEDS TO CLEANSE THESE COMMUNIST, YES COMMUNIST WANNABES, IF WE ARE TO REMAIN A CHRISTIAN NATION!

Good explanation, Dr. Gorka. I believe the problems arose when the government took religion out of schools, as well as history. I remember as a kid getting an hour a week of release time for religious instruction, but that was 70 years ago.

We are ALL the same. We breathe, eat, bleed (same color of blood), laugh, cry, work, raise families, believe in GOD, help each other, have neighbors and friends while trying to live our lives the best we can.
But we have Racist like obama who is half White and a White Supremest and his White Supremest Dictator Beijing biden who wages Race Riots using Terrorist antifa and Terrorist blm to destroy American cities with Illegal and Unconstitutional Executive Orders against White people by committing DISCRIMINATION against Americans.
Then there are those around the world using same tactics as obama and Dictator Beijing biden for POWER and CONTROL saying we are the problem when they are the ones that created the problem.
The problem is NOT with people but the governments that run/ruin everything and create problems that don’t exist. See democrats for problems they created and how the non-thinking believes their lies.
We are ALL the same. We are one race. We are Human Beings.

As Christians we worship the same God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We worship the One, Eternal God. Jesus Christ was from the House of David. Our Jewish root is deep and real. I stand with the Jewish people.

Thank you Dr. Gorka.
Students are so in lack of knowledge and understanding, thanks to John Dewey the American Marxist who hated God as much as Marx did. Dewey developed our education system in the 1920’s to EXCLUDE the great classics, and to ignore morals in stories. We see now it was progressive Marxism, little tiny steps by little until we have reached this point now in our institutions. A small number of atheists managed to take away prayer, and also the respect of each individual, and the list goes on and on. Even fairy tales were scorned beginning in the 60’s! Why? Because in fairy tales the GOOD always wins. And of course Bible stories are the best to teach the goodness of things.
For those in this country who scorn the Judaic/Christian tradition let them live in the world as it was before our grand western civilization came into being. Much of what has been invented, the contributions in most fields, the sciences, math, the medical field, and many others simply would not exist, without the peoples of the one God of the Old and New Testaments. Especially awesome are the freedoms we have. People are not cognizant of their own heritage which is so extremely rich it is amazing. If only they could realize and understand what they have.

Do you believe there is a creator? I didn’t ask do you believe in God. I asked do you believe there is a creator of some sort or is everything we see simply the random interaction of protons and electrons? If there is no creator, there are no inalienable rights. If there are no inalienable rights, there is no Constitution.
There is no common ground with those who do not acknowledge a Creator. I invite them to go someplace where others believe as they. Like Gaza perhaps.

One correction – the tense in the following sentence is incorrect. Should be present instead of past:
First, because the Jews were the chosen people”
They still are. God in His great mercy has allowed the Gentiles (all non Jews) to be grafted in until it is time. Romans 11:25

Sorry, Mr. Gurkha, but I dont agree with your headline statement : "We are ALL Jews"...In actuality there NO pure descendants of Jew Abraham/Jacob living today. That was conclusion by a genealogy professor from Israels leading university. Over 90% of “Israelites/Jews” in Israel are not of Abrahams descent, but genetically trace their ancestry to Asiatic Kazars, and other ethnicity of Asia. So over 2000 years genetically pure Hebrew have disappeared, by mixing with other peoples. And this is not my saying, but Israel`s top genetics scientist..

All Muslims are told in the Koran that they have the obligation to wage jihad against the infidel. Whether they do it through politics or through war, they are told that they have to make the world into an Islamic world. Other religions can only exist if their believers are subjugated by the Islamic State. Christians can only exist if they are the slaves of the Muslims. The Persians in Iran recognize this and chant “Death to Israel, Death to America” every day. All of the Islamic terrorists look at Americans as targets the same as they do the people of Israel. To say that this is not our fight is to ignore the fact that members of Hamas and Hezbollah are already here in America and they are perfectly happy to murder Americans here, just as their fellows are murdering Israelis over there.

Dr. Gorka,
As a Jewish-American I watch your show on Newsmax and read your article. Yes, I agree in principle with the premise. If the One True G-d of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob is not the G-d of Israel then I submit He is the G-d of no one.
Man created all the nations with one exception…Israel. This tiny piece of real estate roughly the size of N.J. was created by G-d. He made His Eternal Covenant with Abraham and through the descendants of Isaac NOT Ishmael.
As a veteran Naval Aviation Officer my military training and education has allowed me to ‘see’ the geopolitical realm realistically. My outlook is simple…Israel is fighting for her existence and when you fight an enemy whose charter calls for your destruction then as far as ‘the rules of war’ goes…they don’t follow them and in my humble opinion, “…Kill em all and let G-d sort em out!”.

And now the socialists are going all nazi on us again wanting to exterminate the Jewish people and ancestral Israel. The Palestinian flag looks a lot like the “pride” flag but I’m sure the islamic terrorists would exterminate the homosexuals also. Black lives matter also claims to support islamic terrorists and homosexuals. The socialist mindset is insane!

If anyone doubts that the Jews are truly God’s very own Chosen People, consider two points:
(1) NONE of us would have probably chosen them, for one thing. A small, poor, nomadic tribe wandering the desert. But God, who is able to see INSIDE a person, did exactly that. He turned a promise to Abraham one clear evening into a nation that could not be numbered just as extensive as the millions of stars that night. All of us are sinners and have justly earned our death. Yet to every single person he has offered eternal life. Even so, some of us are still more precious to Him than others. Again, it’s that “insider knowledge” thing.
(2) They have survived for about 4000 years in a world that has continuously tried to exterminate them. Think of all the other ancient civilizations that have come and gone.
Just sayin’…

Great article. Israel is fighting for their very lives. What they don’t need is more political opposition. Our very best ally in the middle east. God said in his word: I will bless those who bless Israel….and in you all the families in the world will be blessed. That in itself should tell us what we need to know. The other alternative is death and destruction and no human rights from the likes of HAMAS. Pretty simple choice if you ask me.

Trace back your roots to Noah. Before the the great Flood roots could be traced back to Adam and Eve. Hmmm, God’s chosen people, the Children of Israel later became the Jews and Gentiles were then called to be God’s people. We are all brothers and sisters no matter how you look at it or trace the lineage. All believers in Jesus Christ are the brothers and sisters of Christ.

My experience with Jewish kids, 7th and 8th grade grammar school that told me why they all wore brown leather jackets and that was to distinguish themselves from the gentiles and they were the only ones who could afford buying leather jackets in 1952/3. So they wanted to be shown that they were not gentiles by all of them wearing leather jackets. Right there shows a separation of themselves from the rest of us who could not afford leather jackets. There’s an old saying “if you got it flaunt it.”

The Christian God called the Patriarch Abraham out of the Ur of the Chaldees. Father Abraham was a Gentile. It wasn’t until later, 19th Century BCE, when God named Abraham’s grandson, Jacob, Israel {Hebrew). Islam didn’t arrive on the historic scene until some 2,500 years later, in 7th Century AD. Christians should remember that, after the Messiah Jesus Christ’s ascension, the Church at it’s very start on Pentecost (baptism of the Holy Spirit) in Jerusalem, was composed of 100% Jews (Hebrew believers). After Pentecost Gentile believers were grafted in by Paul’s conversion and missionary travels preaching the Gospel to the gentile nations.

I am not a Jew. This is an open air concentration camp and the Palestinians have been prisoners there for 75 years. They have limited access to food, water and electricity. They have no freedom of movement. They have 60% unemployment. Of the 2.1 million Palestinians nearly 1/2 are children. 35% are Christian. In terms of DNA, they are genetically related to Jesus Christ. In Italian “Palestina” means “Judea”. The Palestinians are Judeans.
You cannot call yourselves Christians and support what is happening to the Palestinians. It’s a genocide.
Therefore, I am NOT a Jew.
