He calls his organization the "National Prayer Network". According to Pike: "When Norman Lear attacked my video, 'The Other Israel,' in 1989, he took a big risk -- and lost. As a result of publicity from his national press release, thousands of copies of this video and my book, _Israel: Our Duty...Our Dilemma_, were sold. "Now his comrades of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith (ADL) are making the same mistake. During the League's 78th annual national commission meeting (June 12-15, 1991) in New York, the ADL blasted 'The Other Israel' in a special report entitled 'Electronic Hate: Bigotry Comes to TV.' ... In essence it says, 'Nazism and racial violence are getting out of control. Ted Pike's 'The Other Israel' is the well-spring out of which such violence is being incited.'" Also according to Pike his video "exposes the hidden elite who have inspired communism and liberalism and who dominate the media in America." Also according to Pike: "Every time I scatter my books, brochures, and videos across this nation, I am risking the full wrath of the international conspiracy ... Because I believe in helping to save you, your children, your grandchildren from total Zionist tyranny, I am willing to put my own life and reputation at risk." Here are two quotes from alleged "smear" articles, copies of which were included with his literature: According to the ADL "_The Other Israel_ [is] an anti-Semitic show produced and sponsored by Ted Pike, who spreads his propaganda through the Oregon-based National Prayer Network headed by his father, Claude Pike, an anti-Jewish radio preacher." According to the Atlanta Journal/Atlanta Constitution: "In the tape, Mr. Pike traces modern-day Judaism to 'those same Pharisees who killed Jesus Christ.' He outlines an alleged Jewish conspiracy to take over the world, and blames Jews for 'the erosion of Christian civilization' through domination of liberal political movements, the media and the feminist agenda." Pike's propaganda is slickly produced. Pike writes of his video: "Compiled after 15 months filming and editing, this fast-moving, professional video documentary also gives you a unique education on the inner teachings of Judaism." Pike attempts to avoid sounding like the foam-at-the-mouth Jew-hater that he probably is. He is quick to distance himself from "Metzger and the Skinheads, the Klan and the Aryan nations", calling them "extremists." Pike says he has "before [him] lists of thousands of Christian conservatives who should receive the enclosed brochure." He claims his book has "now [been] ordered by more than 18,000 pastors in America." If you see some hate-monger pushing Ted Pike's tainted wares on a street-corner or parking lot, make sure the intended victims become aware of Pike's true Jew-hating agenda. And, if you happen to live in the Portland area, make sure that the media report on the disease thriving down in Oregon City. Pike works out of a PO Box, but here are some potential leads: 1) a small notation near his return address - "Portland City Temple, Inc." 2) his non-profit organization postal permit - Oregon City, OR, Permit No. 65. -- Brad Pierce --
