|What Would Be The Attitude of
America's Founding Fathers Toward the Road Map?
by Ruth Matar (Women In Green) Jerusalem - June 23, 2004
I dare say the Founding Fathers would be shocked and aghast at what their descendants are permitting to be done to G-d's chosen
It started with Bill Clinton's remarks at a 50th anniversary celebration of Israel's rebirth. He said: "As a Christian, I wonder if
G-d came down to earth today, how he would divide the Holy Land?" What sacrilege! Does G-d change His mind? His Words
are eternal and He has promised faithfully that the Holy Land is an eternal inheritance for the Jewish People.
Unfortunately, President George W. Bush, who is supposedly a Bible-believing Christian, built on Clinton's ideas and proposed
that a Palestinian (Arab) state be carved out of the Land promised by G-d to the Jews. He joined together with the countries
of the European Union, the United Nations and Russia, in approving and promoting a "Road Map to Peace", thereby basically
dispossessing the Jewish People of a large part of their Biblical inheritance.
Of course, the Founding Fathers would find this "Road Map" an abomination, a most ungodly idea! As we all know, the
Founding Fathers were sincerely religious and also overwhelmingly Christian. They not only read the Bible, they lived by the
Bible. They gave their children Biblical names, and many of their communities were named after cities in the Holy Land.
It is estimated that there are close to a thousand places in the United States which bear Biblical names, as for instance, Zion,
Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Rehoboth, Shiloh, Bethel, Hebron, Moriah, Mt. Carmel, Mt. Gilead, and many others.
Eighteenth century Christian Americans saw their revolution in religious and largely Biblical terms. The Declaration of Independence appealed to "Nature's G-d", "The Creator", "The Supreme Judge of the World", and "Divine Providence" for
approval, legitimacy and protection. The words "Separation of Church and State" do not at all appear in the Constitution. The
purpose of "Separation of Church and State" was not to establish freedom FROM religion, but to establish freedom FOR religion.
The one book that was cherished and passed down from generation to generation, was the family Bible, which included both
the Old Testament and the New Testament.
The Founding Fathers took their Bible seriously. Americans have always thought of themselves as a Christian nation, tolerant
of all religions. so long as they accepted traditional Judeo-Christian morality as set forth in the Bible. Even today, up to 85%
of Americans identify themselves as Christians.
Can you imagine the shock of the Founding Fathers if they came down to earth today (using Bill Clinton's language) and realized that their beloved America, still a country with a Christian majority has joined forces with the UN, the European Union and
Russia, some of which countries largely consider themselves secular, and even more importantly irreligious, and who do not
hesitate to go against G-d's expressed words. And, of course, a large part of the United Nations is made up of Arab Muslim
countries, who do not even recognize Israel's right to exist, and who believe that their religion obligates them to dismantle the
The American Founding Fathers would be particularly incensed that their descendants, while professing to be Bible-believing
Christians, are following a plan dreamed up by Saudi Arabia, a country which is violently anti-Christian and anti-Jewish; and
anti-Western Civilization. Saudi Arabia promotes a virulent form of Islam, "Wahabism", all over the world - yes, even through-
out the United States - which even permits the beheading of innocent civilians as part of Jihad, their Holy War against Christians and Jews. This Saudi plan, "The Road Map", aims to dismember the Jewish State, and to substitute a terrorist Arab state in what is designated as covenant land in the Bible.
How about the "Jewish Connection" to the Founding Fathers? Was there such a connection?
Take a $1 bill out of your pocket and look at the back of the Eagle: the stars above the Eagle's head are in the six point Star of
David, to honor Jews. If you turn the Eagle up-side-down you will see a configuration in the likeness of a Menorah, both at the
insistence of George Washington, who said we should never forget the Jewish People and what they have done in the interest of
George Washington's financial advisor and assistant was a Jewish man by the name of Hayim Salomon. During the cold winter
months at Valley Forge when American soldiers were freezing and running out of food and ammunition, it was Hayim Salomon
who marshaled all the Jews in America and Europe to provide money in relief aid to these stranded American troops and thereby
changed the course of history. Without this help, Washington's Continental Army and the fate of the American Colonies would
have perished before they could have defeated the British.
Hayim Salomon (1740-1785) immigrated from Poland to New York at the age of 32. He set up business as a bill-broker, purchas-ing and selling currencies at a discount. When the Revolutionary War broke out, Salomon moved to Philadelphia and began to
negotiate the sale of Continental currency for hard French and Dutch bills. Asking for a nearly negligible commission on trans-actions, he made himself available for Congress, which appointed him official Broker to the Office of Finance of the United States. Salomon was able to maintain a thriving private business in addition to his official duties, despite his interest-free personal loans to such government officials as James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, General von Steuben, and General St. Clair. Nevertheless, by the time Salomon died at the age of 45, private individuals and the government reputedly owed him $638,000. He died penny-less, having used all his sources to aid the newly formed and poorly supplied American Continental Army.
Although Salomon never presented a claim for repayment, his son, Hayim B. Salomon, petitioned for such repayment after his
father's death. Other descendants continued to petition Congress, although they gave up on repayment and simply requested
that a commemoration medal be issued in honor of Salomon, The "Financier of the Revolution".
In 1893, a bill was presented before the 52nd Congress ordering a gold medal struck off in recognition of Salomon's contribution to
the United States.
What would be the value of $638,000 today? We would greatly appreciate it if some financial wizard could provide us with an
estimate of what $638,000 would actually be worth in today's terms.
Please do not misunderstand me I don't suggest that the Jewish People send the descendants of the Founding Fathers a bill for
To repay the debt owed Hayim Salomon and his fellow Jews for the help offered to the fledgling American state at the time of
the American Revolution, the U.S. should stop supporting the ungodly Saudi sponsored "Road Map", and instead assist the
Jews to fulfill G-d's plan for them to return to the Promised Land and not to be uprooted again.
Two Biblical quotations come to mind at this time. I think both of these quotations are very relevant to the current situation:
Amos 9:14, 15: "I will return the captivity of My people Israel and they will rebuild desolate cities and settle them; they will
plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will cultivate gardens and eat their fruits. I will plant them upon their land and
they will never again be uprooted from their land that I have given them, said HASHEM, your G-d."
Genesis 12:3: "I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse; and all the families of the earth shall
bless themselves by you."
With love of the Bible and the Promised Land,
