Calmeyer’s sense of justice drove his activities in Den Haag (now incidentally the International Court of Justice). Why did he take the risk for people from whom he had nothing to gain other than a sense of “rightness” that ultimately resulted in his being named a “righteous gentile” by the Yad Vashem organization of Israel.

While of course a legal concept, justice derives from the Judeo-Christian Civilization that was and is the basis of the western system of justice. That civilization is in turn is seen in the Scriptures common to both Jews and Christians:

A sense of Justice must not be biased toward or against the needy, but purely "just" -

New International Version:

  • Exd 23:2 "Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd,
  • Exd 23:3 and do not show favoritism to a poor man in his lawsuit.
  • Exd 23:6 "Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.
  • Exd 23:7 Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.

Hebrew Names Version:

  • Exd 23:2 You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; neither shall you testify in court to side with a multitude to pervert justice;
  • Exd 23:3 neither shall you favor a poor man in his cause.
  • Exd 23:6 "You shall not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.
  • Exd 23:7 "Keep far from a false charge, and don't kill the innocent and righteous: for I will not justify the wicked.


Author: Judeo-Christian Values Attacked on All Sides

 America’s Judeo-Christian ethic is the foundation for  many of the nation’s ideals, but it is facing unprecedented assaults  from popular culture, books, and government, author David Brog tells  Newsmax.TV.

President Barack Obama does little to defuse the situation, says Brog, executive director of Christians United for Israel.

It doesn’t take much digging to see the assault, says Brog, who details the battering in his book In Defense of Faith: The Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity.

We’ve had a wave of books severely critical of faith: Christopher  Hitchens “God Is Not Great”; Richard Dawkins “The God Delusion” and  Sam Harris The End of Faith”

Books should propel enlightening discussion, Brog tells Newsmax, but these are some of the most superficial and hateful rejections you would expect from much more shallow sources.

Pundits consistently blame religion for the world’s ills, but misinterpretations often distort a denomination’s image, he says.

Then there’s Hollywood, Brog says. When’s the last time you saw a  serious Christian or Jew as the hero of the film instead of the villain  or the crazed maniac? This is a serious, consistent drumbeat, and I’m  afraid it’s taking a toll on our society.

Brog contends that the Judeo-Christian tradition has nurtured the West’s love, compassion, and morality, ironically the same values the atheistic critics of faith claim to represent.

Although some tea party critics maintain that the movement is  mean-spirited, Brog counters that tea partyers he knows are people of  deep faith. These people of faith share the grass-roots movement’s  belief in limited government and personal responsibility and are trying  to preserve those values, he says.

I’d like to see people of faith take a greater role in the tea party,  he says. I’d like to see the tea party’s message be one of compassion,  be one of concern, not one of apathy.

Brog also wants the Obama administration to reaffirm America’s support  for Israel in spite of the difficulties the Arab and Muslim worlds pose  for U.S. foreign policy.

American presidents have traditionally recognized a special  relationship between the United States and Israel, based on our shared  principles of morality and democracy, he says. I would like to see  this administration walk in that tradition rather than in the tradition  of a George Marshall, the secretary of state who told Harry Truman, If  you recognize Israel, you jeopardize our support from the Arab world’

When asked about Islam’s place in U.S. society and the promotion of  shariah, Brog responds: I have a deep concern about radical Islam; I  don’t have a concern about Islam. I think Muslims, like every other  faith tradition, ought to contribute to this nation and be an important  part of this nation, and we need to elevate those who follow Islam.

However, he is troubled about radical Muslims who interpret Islam as sanctioning violence.

We need to do everything we can to foster freedom of religion, to  respect Islam, but to recognize there are those in this country who wish us ill, he says. We need to be aware of the problem, but our  administration doesn’t even recognize the nature of the problem.”

He cited the Obama administration’s refusal to use the term militant Islam to refer to violent radicals.

They are not confronting the real problem, and therefore we are not going to be able to solve it, Brog says.

Brog also says in the interview:

  • A mosque should not be built near ground zero in New York
  • The Obama administration has failed to bring Americans together  and has fostered a climate of intolerance of those who see the Judeo-Christian tradition as the unique source of our values.
