The midnight ride of Paul Revere recalls a journey from history which may now be seen as recalling a more recent invasion in our history, one which has reduced an unwitting nation to a bondage to the Israel (Zionist) Lobby.

We must guard against that invasion which works so effectively to shape each new generation into a bondage. How does the Lobby accomplish that?

This week we have the latest example of how a racially-based ideology led to the horrific slaughter of at least 49 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand, by a white nationalist killer from Australia.

The Israel Lobby exploits Americans with its message that merges Zionism, a political ideology, with Judaism, a racial ethnicity and a religion. As earlier noted, they are not the same, just as white nationalism, an ideology of exclusion, is not the same as the white race.

"So listen my readers, we must be "ready to ride and spread the alarm" against a foreign power To close this journey which began with "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Below here are the first stanzas which I want my grandchildren and great grandchildren to read and remember.

Their parents and grandparents are responsible now to connect the dots which identify links from history. We must be ready to ride and spread the alarm.

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

He said to his friend, "If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch
Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light,
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country-folk to be up and to arm."
