“You are not Whites – either symbolically or literally – as anyone knows who goes to Israel.”
Professor Leonard Fein’s speech to the Jewish Board of Deputies, Johannesburg, May 15th 1972
WHAT FOLLOWS IS ABOUT AS BALANCED AND TRUTHFUL AS I CAN GET FROM MY LIVING SPACE HERE IN ASIA: TO AVOID MAKING MONOLITHIC JUDGEMENTS I CALL UPON THE WORDS OF PEOPLE CLOSER TO THE SUBJECT THAN I.
IT’S ILLUMINATING TO SEE THE HEAVYWEIGHT WEBSITE WWW.HONESTREPORTING.COM
AND ASSESS HOW UNBIASED IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE ON THIS SUBJECT, EVEN HOW MUCH COUNTER-BIAS IS EXPECTED OF US ALL
If I seem undiluted in my perceptions or to show the lack of that restraint which is born of deep understanding, well, I must say that I do not understand fully how we got to where we are today in the World and why Israel and the Jews in general are so inordinately important to that. (Ask an American student to guess whether Jews make up about 5% of the US population and they will usually agree or argue it up a little – actually it is around 2%, maybe much lower depending on household definitions.) I am not anti-Jewish and I still have an old wedding album to prove it. I just want to know better what is being missed by most. In a sense, ordinary Jews getting on with life deserve much sympathy for their terrors and under-recorded injustices inflicted via Christian authorities down the ages, the Nazis, Zion’s zealots and Babylon’s Pharisees alike. And now many Arabs around Israel (with the notable exception so far of the Islamic State) want them gone.
It’s a journey starting with a question – What EXACTLY is a JEW? – then progressing as the destination morphs into the journey itself.
“If I have children, they’ll be Jewish by virtue of having a Jewish mother. They, too, will be entitled to be stoned by the ultra-orthodox in Mea She’arim. I may never become Jewish myself, but my family as a whole will at least be Jewish.”
New Statesman, “A Gentile and an Outcast”, August 14th 1998
“I was born Jewish and so I remain, even if that’s unacceptable for many … For me, the vocation of Israel is bringing light to the goyim. That’s my hope and I believe that Christianity is the means for achieving it.”
Cardinal Jean Marie Lustiger, Archbishop of Paris
Only a minority of Jews today are shakers and movers who believe that racidal Judaism is traditional Judaism – Jewish tradicalism – but their band grew to dominate the intellectual political propaganda of Twentieth Century life in the same way that the bucketful of US neocons – under an extended baiting about which perhaps the majority of Jews are only dimly aware – are being allowed to shape our world in the Twenty First Century.
If a Gentile is simply one who is not a Jew, what makes a Jew?
‘… and in every province and … city, the place where the word of the king, even his law, is coming, gladness and joy be to the Jews, a banquet, and a good day; and many of the peoples of the land are becoming Jews, for a fear of the Jews hath fallen upon them.’
The ancient hill-countries of Israel and Judah were separate though sometimes united and at other times were clasping each others throats. Jerusalem was geographically offset to Judah-Israel. It became established as their most important city at around 1000 BC. Their relationship with mighty Egypt is not clear. It is quite plausible that their early historical tales may have been fantastically intermeshed with the much more glorious doings of the Egyptian dynasties. (The even more ancient King Lists of Sumeria also blend some apparently mythical rulers with historical rulers.) Judah has repeatedly been a client state with a ruler appointed or supported by foreign powers.
This land was later called the Southern Kingdom, home to the Judahites or Yehudites and also the Benjamites, Levites and Simeons. As the sole remaining ‘Israeli state’ after the fall of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, its name came to cover all remaining Israelites and eventually expanded to include voluntary religious converts and entitled immigrants. During the Sixth Century BC various large deportations occurred from there over to Babylon called either the ‘exile’ or the ‘captivity’ (this was not, however, a universal Judean fate despite the total destruction of Jerusalem) and Judah became a Babylonian province. But then Babylon fell in turn in 539 BC and some exiles returned to Judah over a period. Interestingly it was during their captivity that the normal Israelite script gave way to the more sanctified Hebrew script and saw the change over to Temple-less observances.
The name ‘Palestine’ was given to The Holy Land by the Romans and as such does not get even a mention in the Q’ran. Nevertheless it refers to the land now officially shared by ‘Palestinians’ with ‘Israelis’ since 1947 although this exhibits a firmly escalating shareholding for one side which threatens to eventually eliminate the other.
Although delimiting the religious diaspora confirms separated congregations of Jewishness spread abroad, how much of a Jew one person actually is may be a mixture of their maternal-side birth legend, self-imaging, learned behaviours and (to a limited extent) outward appearance plus their degree of associative pride in being Jewish (delimiting themselves further to Orthodox, Ultra-orthodox, Traditional and Other).
Surely the sheer variety of candidates available out there could confuse an arriving Messiah looking out for the ‘select’ mingling among the unchosen? I feel sure that I will be held at fault about this notion as we all expect a perfected being who knows everything in advance of arriving yet Rabbi Kaduri wrote interestingly that not only would many not subscribe to the real Messiah – and that the most religious of folk could be among the ones least likely to do so – but also that even he will not recognize his own stature at first.
The etymology of the term ‘Jew’ (sometimes applied harshly and critically yet at other times admiringly) by common consent presently falls upon the Hebrew noun ‘Yehudi’ the source of ‘Judahite’ and meaning ‘from the Tribe (or the Kingdom) of Judah’.
“An Israeli is a citizen of Israel, regardless of religion. A Jew is a person anywhere in the world born to a Jewish mother, or converted to Judaism, who is thus identified as a member of the Jewish people and religion”
A succinct definition apparently issued from within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem – although Prime Minister Netanyahu (recently introduced as His Excellency to the assembled US Congress which gave him a standing ovation before he spoke and several after) has now muddied his own waters by repeatedly claiming there and elsewhere that he represents not only Israel but all the Jews in the world. Is there a UN homolgation certificate confirming the legal right of an individual to this special representation?
According to some researchers within the US Presbyterian Church it is secular-cum-spiritual Zionism and not Jewishness per se that largely accounts for two major world problem zones at this moment, Ukraine and Palestine.
So what is Zionism? Many Jewish kids have been raised to believe that this aspiratory condition and its fulfillment, the emergent State of Israel, are perfect matters in and of themselves and that Jews, just by being Jewish, have ever owned Palestine/Jerusalem/Zion by a supernatural right and they must be assisted to restore, retain, develop and expand that possession. Others may see parallels with the ‘uber alles’ presumptions at the heart of both the Christian and Islamic exceptionalisms that once promoted slavery and genocide and provoked religious terrorism and political extremism in centuries past – and is visibly rising again today.
Has Zionism been hijacked by a non-religious power-hood with global ambitions? Its supremacist stance seems to be both destroying the indigenous population of Palestine and detracting from previous respect for some wealthy Jewish communities across America. In fact the US, its satellites and the District of Columbia together form Israel’s most useful power-base and a social stigmatization awaits any American who attempts to cross a cultural Red Sea in order to freely initiate public examination of Zionism’s global consequences (which often go unchallenged by patriotic American Jews – excepting a brave few) so raising the tricky question: To which country of the world is a Jew expected to be most beholden, to the broad lands of their own nurture or to tiny, distant and perpetually threatened and threatening Israel?
Zionism is not an impuissant ideological response to Medieval Christian polemics but an active political foist with fundamentalist hangers-on that gets itself rejected privately by many neighbourly Jewish people including those living outside Israel whose lives of peaceful co-existence feel threatened by ripples in the pool. Nevertheless the world seems littered with intellectual academics who stir political warmongering from Safe Chairs and will strongly support Israel’s defensive ‘depopulation’ drives from one blood-sluicing biblical viewpoint to another. I guess that the very existence of a Jewish state is a subject that nobody achieves perfect balance with in real terms (as the ‘chosen’ have become the empowered and yet still masquerade as the ‘powerless’ whenever political PR demands it) and mere discussion of its verity can bring about ‘politically correct’ howls of ‘racism’!
(But see the 1975 United Nations adopted resolution 3379, ‘Zionism is Racism’, revoked wholesale in 1991.)
Have Gentile Christians misunderstood the basic meaning of ‘God’s chosen’ and the burdensome implications of being ‘chosen’? Do Jews actually feel morally superior as a result? Are they really ‘uppity’ towards ‘whites’, at least behind closed Jewish doors?
Kevin Macdonald in his Preface to ‘The Culture of Critique’, 1998, Praeger/Greenwood Publishing, sees it as much deeper than that. He sees
“a group evolutionary strategy by Jews in their competition for social, political and cultural dominance with non-Jews”
and this chimes with the currently successful striving to make ‘whites’ feel a minority in their homelands – Europe, North America, Australia – by massively engineered immigration policies that favour alien cultures. This migration policy has no correspondence outside of the ‘Anglo-Saxon Cluster’ with no corollary of assisting ‘whites’ by inviting them to shift their lives easily to ‘non-white’ cultures nor for any peoples to move easily to a country such as Israel unless they prove they are alike in culture.
Somehow the Ashkenazis, originating in cold dark regions, manage to see themselves symbolically or literally as having the sunny skin-colours of some Sephardims and Israelis: – again
“You are not Whites – either symbolically or literally – as anyone knows who goes to Israel.”
Professor Leonard Fein’s speech to the Jewish Board of Deputies, Johannesburg, May 15th 1972
If You Are Not Whites Then What Are You?
The White European has various tribal roots which classify by unique physical distinctions as being part of the widespread Caucasian Race. However this is such a varied bunch (of eye, hair and skin colours) that arguably it includes Indians and certainly Arabs within its scope. What is ‘semetic’? Some people claim it means descended from Shem whilst others say it is a group of languages developed in the Middle East so making Jews and Arabs alike ‘semitic’ if not ‘semite’. The light-sensitive cells in the iris of every human being are naturally blue (meaning they absorb every colour contained in white light except blue) and this can only change according to the degree of brown pigment present. Slice a strand of Chinese hair and it is square in section and hangs plumb. Negro hair is circular and so curls itself. Caucasian hair is oval and forms waves. But not always. Many people have hair that is not so distinct. I have met a Sri Lankan woman with blue-rimmed eyes and a Cham girl with eyes green as grapes, both dark-skinned with the black hair of one hanging dull and frizzy and the other in shiny waves. The ancients must have ventured much further than we allow and intermixed freely.
Are the Whites really the Pinks? Not exclusively. Massive and masterful boxing genius Mohammed Ali had 12-inch black hammers for closed fists but pretty pink open palms like most other Americans.
Which rings more truly Jewish to you, statement (a) or statement (b)?
(a) “Israelis and Jews in general hate to accept certain truths”
From an article under the heading “The USA Is Not A Friend” by New York-born Batya Medad referring to the early Holocaust denial out there in the Jewish diaspora and updating to more recent diasporadic denials.
(b) “In Jewish history there are no coincidences.”
Elie Wiesel, Auschwitz survivor and Nazi hunter
Of the thirteen million Jews in the world, almost six million live in the Zionist-created state of Israel, as first facilitated by Baron Walter Rothschild who received F.S. Arthur Balfour’s letter dated November 2nd 1917 and passed its contents on to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. (Later, at the time Israel was created, the active Rothschild was Nathaniel Mayer Victor a brave ex-spy and declared atheist who was a wealthy communist sympathizer which fact may surprise some folk and yet President Putin has recently revealed that over 80% of the First Soviet Government were of Jewish extraction). Only one in ten of the population of eight million in Israel are of the sect of Ultra-Orthodox Jews, a group with financially protected males who may study religion full-time until well into their thirties and who are religiously opposed both to Zionism and membership of the armed services. The Orthodox Jews form a growing group with a high birth rate. They are not the only anti-Zionists and military objectors. Some secular Jews including peace activist groups are also against Zionism. The total against is probably one sixth of the whole population of Israel.
The USA is home to 5 million Jews whose various lobby groups are very well-funded and quite able to determine foreign policy making in Washington D.C. The younger Jews are not quite so happy as their elders with the notion of a Jewish homeland outside of America including, of course, the Ultra-Orthodox Jews of America who feel that scripture flatly denies Jews a Jewish home-state at this juncture in their historic path to redemption.
“Jews United Against Zionism” are at http://www.nkusa.org/
Which raises another question. Are the Jews living outside of Israel all of one nation, so to speak? Long before Israel was officially reinstated as the Jewish homeland some famous Israelis of the future were gathered to form the veteran Zion Mule Corps a Jewish Legion under the British Army in the First World War. These specialist Royal Fusiliers saw action in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign and at Gallipoli and elsewhere (incidentally learning British deception tactics). So some people say that the Jews abroad are a people, i.e. a nation, but others do not see it that way. Most will say that they share a religion although don’t forget that there are irregular Christians of the Jewish Rite and that Hanukkah shares with Christmas an implacably non-mournful character and further that it is perfectly possible to become a Jew or a Christian or a Moslem by conversion.
Do Jews hate Arabs? Not necessarily, no. For example the Israeli Druze are a respected composite religious minority of Arab descent located in Northern Israel and the Golan Heights and elsewhere in the Levant. In Israel they hold leading political and military positions. It is thought that Mossad includes trained Arab agents.
Israel automatically allots citizenship to any person with a Jewish mother. The mother of General al-Sisi, Malikah Titani, is Moroccan Jewish which automatically makes the current ‘strong-man of Egypt’ a citizen of Israel too. What if a country of origin or one’s position in it prohibits the holding of dual citizenship? I suppose the incidental Jew is still free to say that they are not Jewish but by then the lines have been blurred divisively and Jewish law seems to maintain that whosoever is born as Jewish dies as Jewish.
It is of course true that the twelve tribes making up the Israelites, of which the Judeans were a counter-part, were one nation long ago. Most of the twelve, though, must have assimilated as ex-Israelites at one place or another that they drifted away to while the new Hebrew/Jewish religious groups founded outside of Judea, probably by group conversion, were each of markedly differing ethnicity.
In March 2013 it was revealed that some females were given contraception as part of Israel’s acceptance criteria for immigrants. (Transit camp detainees: no shots, no pass.) Ethiopians of Jewish faith were given a contraceptive drug that carries known side effects, without their knowledge. The Israeli Government later ordered doctors to withhold all renewals of the drug to any who had not known what it was they were given in the first place.
“The political atmosphere is growing darker all the time. Racism among Jews is entirely mainstream now.”
Hatia Chomsky-Porat of ‘Sikkuy’ (a group that advocates better relations between Jews and Arabs)
Meanwhile in America the Bnai Brith and other Jewish political pressure cookers have been agitating for US multiculturalism for decades. Why? We are reminded yet again of Professor Fein’s confirmatory remark to the Johannesburg Jewry, “You are not Whites – either symbolically or literally – as anyone knows who goes to Israel.”
The Jewish pro-Zionist population globally is around 70% of the world’s total, which arguably might suggest that only 30% of Jews live according to pure Judaism, the true Torah, the peace-seeking words of Jacob. An allocation of Rabbis to one camp or the other would mean endless face-to-face survey interviews in Europe, the Americas, Russia, China, the Middle East, Africa, etc. (It’s been said that there may be more books of Talmud outside than inside Israel.)
The Torah or First Five Books Of The Bible ending with the humanitarian ‘Deuteronomy’ can be seen to be at odds somewhat with the Baylonian Talmud, the latter being so much a part of the return home by Pharisiacal Judeans (the Temple-worship Sadducees having become redundant awhile) that following the Torah alone is argued by some to be un-Jewish (whereas the Pharisees of the Baylonian Talmud were those argued by Jesus as being ‘the synagogue of Satan’).
On the other hand too little Torah enthusiasm may be a warning sign. It is sometimes mentioned on the Internet (possibly why it faces clampdowns periodically) that we have experienced three centuries of Sabbatean-Frankists perverting the course of history and laying the foundations for a “scientific dictatorship”. Secret societies, like deposit-taking banks, have always honed very pleasant people to take care of business at ‘street-counter’ level whilst channeling oligarchical extremist criminals into penthouse positions.
Sabbatai Zevi, a Turk magician who at first was most intrigued by the story of Jesus, was the inspiration of the Sabbataeans. Oddly, many Jewish people discovered Zevi to be the Messiah of their dreams or even thought him G-d. At first he showed resistance to going along with them but having amassed a following of one million Jews he went to Jerusalem for recognition but was given very short thrift. Then he was taken-on by the Turkish Moslems and converted to Islam on pain of death. Following this he claimed to his own that he had no choice but to convert falsely to Islam yet he never revoked this publicly and instead his organization went underground, ordering his many messianic followers to show personal involvement in another religion such as Christianity or Islam but to remain Jewish in secret. This huge cult which saw him as the Jewish Christ undertook sexual perversions of all stripes as he had directed them to do and accepted his law that there were no laws for those now become ‘enlightened’ simply by believing in him. It was and is both monied and influential (and was incestuous and sexually loose with plentiful misplaced progeny) but remains strictly underground to this day, they say.
Jacob Frank, who was likely raised in a Sabbatean family, was the inspiration of the Frankists. Their normalization of evil practices is explained as pleasuring the dark side of G-d so as to use up the evil energy in the world which will somehow hasten the arrival of the Messiah. Initially Talmudic Frankism was in utter divergence from regular Judaism and is quite deeply anti-Torah, which seems to have attracted some Ashkenazi enthusiasts.
Both these Crypto-Jewish cliques became massive cults composed of covert family cells (some of which founded major Banks and Universities) and now seem conjoined secretly to take over the whole world in their perverse desire to outdo or dominate or excruciate or chattelize or treat as meat everybody else, even including those enjoyers of non-theoretical Qabalah and others who undertake an inner progress to a much wider universe than these psycho-conjurers can yet know.
A pitfall to Sabbatean-Frankists (and some Qabalists perhaps) is that they can legitimately – by seeing themselves as part of the winning group – reject warnings of insanity by outsiders from the point of view that they are the sanest ones of all. Just as the warmonger brainwashes his or her soldiers and their civilian supporters to perceive that the enemy is a sub-human species (who they would do well to kill, maim, rape or torture) so do some Talmudic comments lean in that socio-pathic direction.
It should be added that all these observations could also be possible outcomes of investigations at depth into the highly-educated Jesuit chameleons, confessed killers and corrupters and major war facilitators who are bound by terrible oaths to unquestioningly become anything-but-Jesuit, simply to order. Often the deception lasts a lifetime.
Certain rumours suggest a coming worldwide institutional genocide planned by a small elite either more powerful or wealthier than any one country. Can this be true?
Should we establish who it is that has the where-with-all? Perhaps those cunning rich who ultimately channel most all of the world’s resources (including through the Vatican Bank).
Who has the motivation? Maybe the previously oppressed and those cunning rich who are fearful of discovery and public awakening.
Who has the religious tradition necessary to underpin this? Rabbinic Judaism out of Hebrewism. God’s chosen dominant nation of many branches, out from one of which comes the last King of the World so we have been warned. The Pope may agree.
Who has undertaken such a long-term development, the major beneficiaries of which would be the elite of future generations? Surprisingly there are plural candidates in the West going way back including a seemingly systematic “weakening of the blood of Esau”.
Who has that much sheer mass? If not the Jews alone then consider the Crypto-Jews and their confederates deploying the Goyim in accordance with Hebrew prophecy. Yet the Jews are not the same as the Hebrews, likewise the European caricature of a Jew is not the face of a Judean and some of the greatest Socialist Zionists today are the High Jesuits/Papal Knights incidentally towing Fundamental Christian Zionists in their wake. If you scratch a Zionist you do not necessarily find a Jew. Likewise,
“Not all Jews are communists. Not all Jews are Zionists.
Judaism is not the root of all evil in the world.
Anybody with a shred of common sense knows that.
Those that push this kind of nonsense only add support to
the Zionist lies and steer the spotlight away from
Freemasons, Jesuits and the British/Dutch royals.”
Henry R. Huttenbach
Judaism does not have a mandate of beliefs as such. It is traditional and yet applicable to the here-and-now and yet ever-challengeable, much as Western Science holds itself to be – which may be no coincidence. Binding customs (such as Bar and Bat Mitzah, Holy Days, Synagogue, the ethics of marriage, family and bereavement) and the general adoption of Rambam’s 13 Principles of Faith (in conjunction with his list of 613 mitzvot or commandments) serve the matters of the day while more cosmic and spiritual introversions are left for the Mystics and Qabalists to discern and explore.
Martin Buber, d.1965, a Convinced Jew was inspired by the strict Hasidim, a Rumanian group of mystical rebbe. His thoughts still influence religieuse around the world and yet when he spoke ‘Thou’ he was often addressing the numinous ground of all being rather than the personal God of the Hebrew Bible.
In the late First Century AD the Council of Jamnia finalized the Jewish Canon. Yohanan ben Zakkai (an anti-temple, anti-nationalistic Pharisee who accepted Rome’s Flavian line of Caesars as being Judaism’s Christ-figures) was given land and money by the Romans who had hoped to pacify Roman-Judean relations.
Most religious Jews, though, believe their Messiah is yet to come although some reckon this to have been Simeon Bar Kochba who led the most successful of failed Jewish uprisings against the now-vanished Roman Empire*. The very last holdout for the innocent Judeans being pursued by rapacious, slaying Romans was Masada built on a mountain top with sheer cliffs. The Romans built a scaffolding system to reach the top which took many weeks. When the Jews saw the assault approaching they committed mass-suicide rather than let these soldiers of Rome have their way. In recent times in the Americas and elsewhere there have been similar suicides in the face of group destruction, although of non-Jews.
(*The more like the New Roman Empire the United States abroad becomes then the more it looks as if they are being set up as a target, as a Guy Fawkes-style dummy Uncle Sam sat atop ever-increasing piles of tinder-dry trash. Watch Out!)
ON BEING HEBREW
Hebrew is a North-West Semitic language from in particular the ancient Canaanite foundational language. This incorporated into itself religious images and even whole stories, which may have reappeared as Hebrew Bible stories and ideas. There may have been a Canaanite prophet called Dan’l, by the way.
The Hebrew language incorporates numeracy also in its assemblages of consonants. It long ago ceased to be a colloquial tongue although many Jews like to keep it in daily use and in certain fields there are non-Jewish enthusiasts of Hebrew.
The etymology of this word seems inappropriate or confused. Possibly it first meant uncertain in the sense of unsettled or nomadic. Some say it meant across the river but this must apply to more than one locality, don’t you think? Hebrew was spoken by the Israelites and the Samaritans although before them the matter is not so clear, especially as the Tanakh makes no reference to a Hebrew language.
So-called Oriental Hebrew is perhaps the truest descendant of Biblical Hebrew. Ashkenazi Hebrew originated in North East Europe and is used in modern Israel.
The phrase True Hebrews is sometimes heard as if there were False Hebrews. A fair assumption links the disparate Northern nomad tribes to Israel but now some Africans claim themselves to be the descendants of Shem displaced from the land of Judah.
There is in existence an ancient reference to Abraham the Hebrew. This ties the ambivalent term Hebrew to three major religions claiming descent from Abraham.
THE JUDAIC TRADITION
“Judaism: the Babylonian Talmudism Religion Cult of the Pharisees”
The Jewish Encyclopaedia
It is said that the story of Israel began with the patriarch Abraham, who believed firmly in the One, and his son the patriarch Isaac and grandson the patriarch Jacob, a.k.a. Israel, and Jacob’s 12 sons who each founded a tribe of Israel. At that time there were no people calling themselves or being called ‘Jews’ and it was many hundreds of years past this era that the correlative term ‘Judaism’ first arose.
Unusually, these old tribes and their Jewish successors have maintained a kind of written ancient or antique history in books like the Torah, the Talmud, the Zorah and the Midrash.
The best view to take of the Talmud is that it is in a line of descent from Moses at Mt.Sinai, i.e. that it is an accompanying or second Torah that once was oral. It seeks to teach insight into the Torah books in a father-to-son manner and is not austere. It does not necessarily elevate the Rabbi, the teacher, or his views. Indeed it contains within it some discussions on the law that are neither taken as final nor have been adopted into practice.
Of course no accepted ground rules had been mooted for composing history books at that long-distant time and the main thrusts of the Hebrew bible(s) were really about religious superiority and national unity, contributed to from such as the Levites.
The final and tenth test of Abraham (does G-d really group units like we do on the fingers of our hands or is He just obliging us by packing His rules in tens?) was when G-d required Abram to murder his own son as a human sacrifice and burnt offering but then backed-down at the last moment. Judaism does not concur even faintly that G-d would approve of human sacrifice, whereas a version of that notion is central to today’s Christianity in the crucified body of Jesus, and so the religious conformist see Abram’s willingness as a test he passed (by doing what was opposite to his Hesed nature) while others see it as a test that he failed, i.e. the response being sought was perhaps a spirited refusal or plain inability.
Moses is another central figure in these religious histories who was improbably ‘a Jew’. Both he and Abraham covenanted with the Supreme and Moses then received specific laws from Him. By tradition every ‘Jewish soul’ that was ever to be born in the history of the world presented themselves before Moses and G-d at that moment and each of this time-limited finite number volunteered their personal agreement to be bound by the covenant.
THE DNA LINEAGE OF ISRAEL
Here’s a Roman Catholic Easter Prayer to consider:
Hæc sunt enim festa paschália,
in quibus verus ille Agnus occíditur,
cuius sánguine postes fidélium consecrántur.
This is the night,
when once you led our forebears, Israel’s children,
from slavery in Egypt
and made them pass dry-shod through the Red Sea.
(also see the Article ADDENDUM TO NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN V 53 THE LAW OF THE SUN: THE FLAMMAS)
Who will DNA enthusiasts one day promote or demonstrate as bearing the lineage of Israel – as “Israel’s children”?
“And thou, O Israel, My servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, Seed of Abraham, My lover, Whom I have taken hold of, from the ends of the earth … I have chosen thee, and not rejected thee.”
Abraham was most probably not an Israelite, Abraham and Jacob seem the main reason that Israelis became His chosen people, if that is what they really were. If the Catholic Church today is to have any meaning at all then it is to seek with modesty to help represent but not to rule over all of humanity. Put figuratively, has the Church the right to don the mantle of Old Israel? Rule was accorded to the House of Israel as the Children of God, says scripture. Were the Children of God subsequently abandoned forever for their mistakes?
“… then hath Jehovah thy God turned back (to) thy captivity, and pitied thee, yea, He hath turned back and gathered thee out of all the peoples whither Jehovah thy God hath scattered thee.”
Are Jews so clearly these Children of God or are these favourites the lost tribes otherwise known as the House of Israel?
(Or could it be that our apolitical purpose on Earth is for each person as the individual child of God to summon up the reign of our own Higher Self which inevitably then defers to God?)
Through the First and Second World Wars a hierarchic Social Darwinian race theory positing a direct correlation between perceived physical characteristics of a group and each member’s internal self was generally accepted in the West.
“… each Volk is endowed with certain characteristic traits, some bodily, some mental. Such traits are transmitted hereditarily from generation to generation … On such traits depend the particular and specific national customs or manners …”
Chaim Zhitlowsky, Jewish Socialist, 1939
Skin colour such as black, yellow or white was found indicative of the inner person. Spiritual shortsightedness came into this and ignorance did the rest. China’s ancestors, for example, are found in one Eastern part to have been a mixture of Chinese, Caucasian and Negroid – three of the five real races – which fact irritates the Chinese purists. Yet the Chinese today may have yellow, white or tan skin and these three types are to be seen everywhere in China. They are clearly not all yellow. Likewise the Vietnamese with whom they intermarried and who already had a large dose of Indian DNA in them. They are called Indochinese – but not by the Vietnamese who claim the nation name Kin to differentiate themselves from over fifty distinct minorities living in their highlands and those Viet Chinese settled around the ‘Big Market’ district, once a separate city near Sai Gon. I have seen in the England of my youth a pale white-skinned ‘negro’ girl and I recall there were swarthy boys tanning heavily in the Summer who we unquestioningly classed as ‘white’. Racialists, your divisive generalisations are sheer ‘Body Swerving’ and the same goes for those seeking ‘diversity’ in society by turning the clock back to achieve cultural clashes/social breakdown. Slow fusion between all the races and lineages has long ago been initiated and someday a DNA map will tell the tale on you.
In a sweeping reaction to the extremes of the Nazis,
“modern anthropology, as defined by the German-Jewish expatriate Franz Boas, for three decades head of the anthropology department at Columbia University, declared nineteenth-century race theory without foundation.”
Norman Cantor, Jewish historian
It is extraordinary how a lapsed ideology like this can be construed intellectually as ideological in itself in the same way that avoidance by anarchists or miniarchists of politicized governance is usually described as a political point of view.
Judaism/Jewishness has been left intrinsically racist by the tradition of its religious literature yet now without any secular ideological foundation as a matter of general preference. (The opposite may be true of elected politicians in atheistic lands who court popularity by expressing a secular adherence to local religious traditions.)
Nonetheless there are still international genetic studies to prove that all Jews everywhere relate (claiming there are more similarities by comparing with some universal Jewish phenotype or other than when compared to any particular country’s non-Jewish sample).
Jewish IQ is frequently vaunted as higher on average than non-Jews. There is no way of arriving meaningfully at any such thing as an average IQ other than by the uniform testing of a random selection and applying arithmetic average which, as anybody with a good IQ already knows, is inherently flawed. (The notorious ‘2.3 children per family’ for example.)
Of course, Jews always believed that they were a separate race and behaved accordingly (and were placed under forced separation by Innocent III) reasoning that their group awareness of how heaven-sent their special qualities are should be taken as irrefutable proof of its verity and not a bad case of defensive socio-narcissism.
THE JESUIT COUNTER-REFORMATION AND ZIONISM
Following the Roman Catholic Council of Trent a Christian eschatological counter-reformation doctrine was created known as futurism stating that the Christian prophecies are not yet fulfilled (in contradistinction to the Churches long-established policy of preterism) which countered Protestant historicism (claiming the prophecies referred to actual events of the past and allotting symbols accordingly).
Futurism was conflated from various prophecies that the Judeans will return to Israel and build a new Jerusalem Temple (and the Antichrist will seat hisself there awhile). In short, Futurism was putative Zionism.
Ignatius Layola commissioned top Jesuit scholar Francisco Ribera (d.1591) to write a new take on the Book of Revelation which stated just that: the Antichrist would be a non-Christian male, not part of a dynasty, who would appear seven years before the end of time and inhabit the (presently non-existent) Temple at Jerusalem and call hisself God. The Jews were to follow him – it seems the Antichrist or Antimessiah of the Christians may have been considered the Christ-Messiah of the Jews – but the goodness of Christians would hinder his first appearance to such an extent that God would have them all raptured (a word akin to raptor and meaning snatched up roughly) to Heaven so allowing the Antichrist to perform his evil machinations free of hindrance!
As we can see, Zionism became necessary to the so-called Rapture prophesied by Paul in Christianity’s Bible and likewise to the proposed Tribulation and the showdown with Jesus at End Time/the Battle of Armageddon.
Does the Jesuit’s grand master now rule secretly over the Papacy which openly employs the Rothschilds who quietly rule over the Papal Treasury?
It has happened more than once that Zionism has needed an influx of Jewish bodies to help it to root or to flourish in Israel at the same moment as a big push has been given to emigration by Jews of other lands finding themselves in desperate straits at home. Now there are signs of this push-pulling in France and even America (after much social degradation in pursuit of some wealthy and powerful lobbyists’ policies) and this despite or because of a conflict between Jews and Arabs in Israel-Palestine that could perpetuate itself all the way to the last man standing.
WORLDLY AND OTHER-WORLDY KINGS
The nativity and origin story of David is an essential part of the history of the formation of Judah and therefore of combined Israel.
The major author of the David story was Bathsheba, mother of Solomon. It has been suggested that a ‘Queen Mother’ is a perfect device for the reinforcement of an unfortunately off-centre provenance. Ostensibly on behalf of David she named her son as successor to David.
The acquisition of the territory of Benjamin, Sixth Century, was to power economically Judah-Yeshud and led to the ‘transcendent myth of origins’ as found in Exodus and Joshua.
The Torah became canon from 400 BC. It seems there were David anti-humours from as far back as the Seventh Century. Kingship may have become an unpopular notion in the Levant.
‘Deutoronomic restorationists’, however, clung to the aspiration of a sovereign for Judah even by pretense that this was historical tradition and Samuel-Kings may have been moulded accordingly.
By 539 BC these had almost had their day and an independent state was achieved. The returning Judeans together with some Benjamites, later called Galileans and argued by some as the forerunners of the Normans. (All Jesus’s disciple-apostles including Paul but excluding Judas Iscariot have been claimed to be Benjamites.)
At this point the ‘Israelites’ as a nominal group departed from the pages of history.
The Latter Prophets were part of new canon. In accord with Psalms and Chronicles (which places him in a virtually female-free masculine environment) we are introduced to the Prophet David and not the worldy warrior David, foreshadowing perhaps the antipathetic qualities attributed to the future Messiah or pair of Messiahs. Yet we are still without conclusive evidence of the existence of David (as distinct from David’s historic importance, real or not) outside holy books and angry claimants. Nor of Jesus despite what is fed to susceptible believers as historical proof.
The way many ancient peoples have spread and interbred I would guess that many European and North African folk have a distant ancestor from among the Israelites and the reverse goes for modern Israelites. The ‘Erev Rav’ are the ‘mixed multitude’ associated with minions of the ‘Amalek’, an effective personification of doubt. Although now expanded into a legal virtue by the developed skill of debate, which dubiously resembles trial by champions itself derived from trial by battle, the notion of doubt was once badly regarded in itself:
Revelation 3:15-16: I have known thy works, that neither cold art thou nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot. So – because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to vomit thee out of my mouth;
We are schooled into confusion about the nature of doubt. Faith alone is not the opposite of doubt nor is any acquired knowledge: only deep inner knowing is the true opposite of the state of doubt and holding one’s mind in a condition that is totally lacking any doubt over an outcome can work miracles. Yet it is not normally achieved and requires self-preparation that is beyond words and yet method can be stumbled upon mysteriously.
The Talmud, for instance Rosh Hashana 29a, underlines that subjecting one’s heart (sublimating one’s Self) to God is what brings things about … touching on the spiritual perhaps in that the mind that is stilled (free of internalized sounds thoughts and visions, which is the true meaning of heavenly bliss) can sway the universe …
Is it a historic land that has never been a sovereign state?
This was once true of large regions such as Germany or Italy and the hunting grounds of the Native American tribes. The Palestine region has previously touched parts of Jordan and Israel, Syria and Lebanon. Under the British Mandate, however, the Palestinian Pound was issued as currency from its central bank.
2) Is Palestine an alternative holy name under which the Vatican parks Israel?
Well, the Israeli President Shimon Peres was made a Knight of Malta by the Pope and a Knight of the Order of St.Michael and St.George. Jesuit-trained in Poland and dubbed a knight by Britain in 1993 he accorded 60% of the ultimate strategic city, Jerusalem, over to the Vatican.
3) Is Arab Palestine a movement that exists purely to harass Jewish Israel?
Prominent Arabs who once denied outright the notion of any place ever having been called Palestine later supported the ideal of an independent Palestine.
4) Is it an habitable island in a shifting sea of sand like some other ME regions?
We remember that it was the British who drew straight lines on flat maps through the uninhabited desert regions that were previously unmarked and mostly unclaimed. Divers peoples gathered together in large fruitful groups have had never needed these invisible lines across the surrounding empty spaces. Undeniably a coastline makes all the difference, though.
5) Is it a spread of biblical cities (Ashdod, Ashkelon, Ekron Gath, Gaza, Jericho) once of the Syro-Hittites or else Philistia and with the Rome-conjured name of ‘Colonia Aeolia Capotilina’ later being amended by the Romans to ‘Iudea Province’ and then to ‘Syria Palestine Province’ to mark the total removal of the rebellious Jews?
Yes the Romans emptied the land of most all Judeans. Other regional encroachers have been the Crusaders, the Abbasid, Fatimid, Rashidun and Umayyad caliphates, the Ayyubids, the Mamluks, Ottoman Turks and the British Empire.
MAKING PLANS FOR ZION
“From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates”
Theodor Herzl, a founder of Zionism, on defining the future geography of the Jewish state (though “and beyond” has often been added to this descriptive phrase).
In Czarist Russia the Minister Vyacheslav Von Plehve, a man thought to be behind some atrocious progroms, was approached in St.Petersburg in August 1903 by leading Zionist Theodor Herzl with a proposal of mutual assistance such as the sudden removal from Russia of “subversive Anarcho-Bolshevik jewish people” in exchange for a government request to the Turks for a Jewish charter for colonisation of Palestine and backed this up by a guarantee of support for Czarist interests in the land of Palestine. This approach failed and after that the minister was murdered.
We can reasonably say that should Palestine fall within the British sphere of influence, and should Britain encourage Jewish settlement there, as a British dependency, we could have in twenty to thirty years a million Jews out there, perhaps more; they would develop the country, bring back civilization to it and form a very effective guard for the Suez Canal.
Chaim Weizmann who became leader of the World Zionist Organization. A future Prime Minister, General Jan Smuts the South African delegate to the British War Cabinet during World War One, was his close friend and ally.
“The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates. It includes parts of Syria and Lebanon.”
Rabbi Fischmann, Jewish Agency for Palestine, testimony to the U.N. Special Committee of Enquiry in 1947
His Majesty’s Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish People, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object.
Britain’s Balfour Declaration (which incidentally re-stated the civil rights and religious liberty of the non-Jews in Palestine, perhaps insincerely)
This was the land for which Britain had promised self-determination to the Arab powers. From the beginning the Zionist movement had sought ‘Armenianization’ of the Palestinian people. While insisting that Palestine was mostly unpopulated, the Zionists had made it clear that they should be the instrument of its population’s subjugation. Efforts were also planned that would prevent the Palestinians from cultivating their own soil failing the expulsion of all non-Jews from the area. The mythical “land without a people for a people without a land” was to be a form of colonization after all.
FAMOUS MASSACRES OF ARAB VILLAGES
The Lohamei Herut Israel (Fighters for the Freedom of Israel or Stern Gang) and IZL (Irgun) commandos stormed the village of Deir Yasin on April 9, 1948, slaughtering 254 men, women and children.
“I saw cut off genitalia and women’s crushed stomachs … It was direct murder.”
Zvi Ankori, Commander of the Haganah
They were male and female commandos with “revolvers, machine-guns, hand grenades, and also cutlasses in their hands, most of them still blood-stained. A beautiful young girl with criminal eyes showed me hers, still dripping with blood; she displayed it like a trophy.”
Jacques de Reynier, Director, International Red Cross in Palestine
The Chief commander Menachem Begin virtually gloated over that butchery’s terrorizing impact throughout Palestine. Yitzhak Shamir then carried the matter on as commander of the Irgun and the Lehi.
Following on from Deir Yasin the massacre at Dueima in 1948 was committed by the Israel Defense Forces (the Tzeva Haganah le-Israel or ZAHAL, the official Labor Zionist Israeli army).
The massacre of the village of Kibya on October 18th 1953 was commanded by Ariel Sharon. Not every leading Jew agreed with it:
“I condemned the Kibya Affair that exposed us in front of the whole world as a gang of blood-suckers capable of massacres … I warned that this stain will stick to us and will not be washed away for years to come.
“It was decided that a communique on Kibya will be published and Ben Gurion was to write it. It is really a shameful deed. I inquired several times and each time I was solemnly assured that people would not find out how it had been done.”
Moshe Sharett (Prime Minister 1954-55)
Kafr Qasim was a village just within Israel. For the massacre there in October 1956 Ariel Sharon’s Commando Unit 101 were all rewarded with medals and promotions.
And so the savage and inhuman military massacres continued of basically simple and reverend Arab peasants in their family homes. Of 800,000 Arabs much less than 200,000 are still there today which was the intent of the terrorizers as driven by ‘it’s either us or them’ fears. The Absentee Property Law of 1950 did the rest.
“Between ourselves it must be clear that there is no room for both peoples together in this country. We shall not achieve our goal if the Arabs are in this small country. There is no other way than to transfer the Arabs from here to neighboring countries – all of them. Not one village, not one tribe should be left.”
Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency’s Colonization Department in 1940
“We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.”
Heilbrun, Chairman, Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat mayor of Tel Aviv
“We shall reduce the Arab population to a community of woodcutters and waiters.”
Uri Lubrani, Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion’s special adviser on Arab Affairs, in 1960
‘When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do will be to scurry around like drugged roaches in a bottle.”
Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Armed Forces addressing the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee
We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.
Yisrael Koenig, Govt Memorandum, April 1976
These attitudes, realized into actions, make the original Zionist revolutionary leader’s remarks of June 12th 1895 seem almost charitable by comparison:
“ … spirit the penniless population across the border … denying it any employment in our country.”
In 1948, when Jewish forces captured Safed it was a mixed city of 10,000 Palestinians and 2,000 Jews. All the Palestinian inhabitants were expelled, including 13-year-old Mahmoud Abbas, and now
“When a non-Jew moves in, residents begin to worry about their children, about their daughters. Many Arab students have been known to date Jewish girls,”
Chief rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu speaking as head of Safed’s religious council, in effect a municipal appointment.
It would seem that Jews in Jewish cities that were once Arab cities may live in fear of being forced to return properties one day as a result of ‘Palestinian right of return’ active movements. No less than one and a half dozen rabbis warned that Safed was facing an Arab takeover and Jewish residents were told to inform on any neighbour who tried to sell or rent land or property to an Arab. Their rabbid statements provoked a series of “Death to the Arabs” riots by locals in which Arab homes were attacked and three Arab students were beaten. Posters went up inciting immolation of the home of 89-year-old Eli Zvieli, a Jew who rented rooms to Arab students. All this was the raving response to hearing of the city’s plan to build a medical school to attract more students.
A group of Reform movement Jews and several Arab MPs have demanded that the Attorney-General investigates some of the rabbis for incitement to violence.

THE AGE OF IRON
“The Iron Wall” is an important Zionist tract by Vladimir Jabotinsky in 1923
“The Iron Will” was emphasized by career soldier and IDF Commander-in-Chief Yitzhak Rabin in the 1967 War
“The Iron Hand” in the West Bank was promoted by Yitzhak Rabin, destined to become the Israeli Prime Minister on two separate occassions
“The Iron Arm” in the West Bank was introduced by Chief of Staff, Raphael Eitan
“The Iron Brain’ was the purging of the Sabra and Shatila camps initiated by Sharon, Begin and the Israeli Cabinet in 1982
“The Iron Fist” was the collective punishment of the West Bank and Gaza, during the 1987 Palestinian Nationalist Intifada
(Israel Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin had been raised in a Labour Zionist environment and saw life a different way from the general population at that time who were truly taken aback by the Intifada)
This iron fist policy continues today:
“I think the Israeli people understand now what I always say: that there cannot be a situation, under any agreement, in which we relinquish security control of the territory west of the River Jordan.”
PM Benjamin Netanyahu
Try to find even one example when the colonization of a country took place with the agreement of the native population. Such an event has never occurred.
“I believe God is Jewish. I believe the demographic problem will be solved”
Reuvin Rivlin, Israel Likud Party
By contrast the Sephardim majority in Israel place social services, education, housing and jobs ahead of the maintenance of genocidal territory cleansing and general humiliation of the Palestinian Arabs.
Israel exercises an apartheid democracy, to which a citizen must first qualify rather than be given the right, much as modern South Africa did before the changeover.
Zionist ideologues today still claim the Holocaust as the main justification for almost everything that comes their way despite real evidence that they once ‘held hands behind the sofa’ with Nazi Germany during WWII. Under foreign Zionist direction in 1944, Dr. Rudolph Kastner of the Jewish Agency Rescue Committee in Budapest, Hungary, signed a secret pact with Adolf Eichmann ensuring that the lives of 600 prominent Jews would be saved as against the 800,000 other Jewish persons who were, as agreed, to face what became known as the Holocaust without publicity. A survivor, Malchiel Greenwald, revealed the unholy agreement publicly in 1953 and having denounced Kastner was apparently pursued at law by an Israeli government which in its very leadership contained contributors to the execution of that JARC-Nazi pact with Eichmann.
THE ZIONIST ASPIRATIONS OF DAVID BEN GURION
“We do not suggest that we announce now our final aim which is far reaching – even more so than the Revisionists who oppose Partition. I am unwilling to abandon the great vision, the final vision which is an organic, spiritual and ideological component of my … Zionist aspirations.”
Ben Gurion 1936
After we become a strong force as the result of the creation of the state, we shall abolish partition and expand to the whole of Palestine. The state will only be a stage in the realization of Zionism and its task is to prepare the ground for our expansion. The state will have to preserve order – not by preaching but with machine guns.
Ben Gurion, 1937
“The boundaries of Zionist aspiration include Southern Lebanon, Southern Syria, today’s Jordan, all of Cis-Jordan and the Sinai.”
Ben Gurion, 1938
“We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria, and Sinai.”
Ben Gurion in May of 1948 presenting his strategic aims to the General Staff.
POLICING OF THE BRITISH MANDATE TERRITORY
In 1938, five thousand Palestinians were imprisoned often from arrests made by the Zionists a local force given to mass arrests, assassinations and executions yet which had made common cause with colonialism.
Two thousand of the detained were given long-term sentences. One hundred and forty eight were hung. Five thousand homes were demolished as punishment.
In the post-partitioning era new territory had come under Israeli occupation (against the will of other nations or at least against international law) whereabouts there were almost one million Arabs in nearly five hundred villages that could call themselves Palestinians. Within six months, perhaps only one hundred and forty thousand remained as a result of killings, expulsions and civilian refugees fleeing for their lives.
“We came here to a country that was populated by Arabs, and we are building here a Hebrew, Jewish state. Instead of Arab villages, Jewish villages were established. You do not even know the names of these villages and I do not blame you, because these geography books no longer exist. Not only the books, but also the villages do not exist.”
Moshe Dayan, then the Chief of Staff and Minister of Defense
“We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimetre of Eretz Israel … Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours.”
Raphael Eitan, then the Chief of Staff, Israeli Armed Forces
“You Israelis, you should never become lenient if you shall kill your enemies. You should have no pity on them until you have destroyed all their so-called Arab culture, on the ruins of which we shall build our own civilization.”
Menachim Begin, Oct 28th 1965
ON THE STATE OF ISRAEL
Regular funding of the state of Israel by the people of the USA is disproportionate to the size of either population. Other countries and organizations contribute also. For example Germany is said to be under contract to fund Israel until nearly the end of this century. Israel considers itself part of the modern world and takes a leading position in research and development of IT and the high technologies. It’s international business people tend toward a European look, I have even met the occasional Scandinavian type, but due to demographic shift at least half of its voters today are Sephardims from way back.
Over 90% of the state of Israel is under the Israel Lands Administration/Jewish National Fund guidelines. Apparently four generations of maternal Jewish descent is required in order to live on or work upon or lease these lands.
A FURTHER JEWISH GROUP WITHIN ISRAEL-PALESTINE
More than three-quarters of a million Jews moved traumatically to Israel from surrounding Arab countries:
“Until now, they spoke about the ‘Arab refugees’ and not the ‘Jewish refugees’.”
Meir Kahlon, Chairperson of the World Organization of Jews from Arab Countries, on November 30th 2014 the first-ever national day remembering Jewish emigrations, uprootings, expulsions, fleeings and general exodus from surrounding Moslem countries.
Some of these exiles have felt that they had their histories denied or ignored by fellow Israelis even though the Middle East had experienced a German-Italian fascist Holocaust of its own such as the death camps in Libya during WWII and the tragic irony that the joyous founding day of Israel was to prove a disaster for them in their own habitats as much or even more so than for the Arabs in Palestine.
THE JEWS IN IRAQ
There has been a Jewish community in Iraq since around 568 BC the time of the Babylonian Captivity. (As part of the Persian Empire the Kingdom of Judah had become a Province with new borders delineating a smaller territory, its population reduced to about 30,000 by the Fifth Century.) The Parthian period was especially fruitful for the Jews. In fact during the Roman-Persian Wars the Parthian King lifted the Jewish Resh Galuta (the exile’s leaders turned tax collection agents) to princely status.
It is significant because the Talmud was first compiled at that centre of Jewish scholarly learning. Babylon the city and Babylonia the country at times seem interchangeable in the bible and have played a role in the accounts of the Prophets. It has also been a destination for Jewish refugees. The great Bar Kochba Revolt and subsequent depopulation of Judaens may well have sent Jews running to Babylonia. The destructions of Jerusalem and human transfers to Babylonia/Iraq have helped make Judaism what it is today.
CIRCUMCISION: THE CUT OF COMPLETION
“We perform all the requirements of circumcision on the Sabbath: We circumcise, uncover, *metzitzah* and place a compress with cumin on it”
Mishnah Shabbat 19b
*suck clean by mouth as a health requirement*
(arguably endorsed by the Four Humors of Hippocrates)
Biblical Adam, Seth and Noah, Shem, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Samuel, David, Jeremiah and Zerubabel were all born circumcized… also Balaam who became crooked and Job who stayed straight. The inference is that there is a final step to physical perfection which in very special cases has been eliminated beforehand. The Talmud carries a spiritual understanding that circumcision is the final touch to making Man in God’s image (which places Hebrew-Jewish women and all Gentiles permanently beyond the pail/beyond the blade/off the hook – depending upon your point of view).
By comparison, some African tribal lore includes a belief that the foreskin is the female part of a boy and the clitoris is the male part of a girl, each needing drastic surgery at or before puberty. Other African tribes choose to cut the face simply as a rite of passage. (I’ll never forget the first first time I was served in a Central London Royal Mail Office by a well-spoken and authoritative lady with parallel razor scars on both cheeks right where all can see them. What a painful initiation to adulthood, there must have been blood all over the poor crying child.)
EXCLUSION AND AUTONOMY
There can be no assimilation. We shall never allow such things as mixed marriage because the preservation of national integrity is impossible except by means of racial purity and for that purpose we shall have this territory where our people will constitute the racially pure inhabitants.
Jabotinsky’s ‘Letter on Autonomy’
“If Israel had not come into existence after World War II then I am certain the Jewish race wouldn’t have survived…I stand before you and say you must strengthen your commitment to Israel.”
“… the apartheid people are the Arab Palestinians ‘cos whatever land they get – no Jew – not one Jew will be allowed to live in their midst – Nazis – worse than Nazis …”
Avi Lipkin, a dual citizenship Jew who tours American churches extensively addressing them exactly as above (and has made so many accurate global predictions that he appears to be some kind of favoured insider). He likes to quote Mark Twain on ‘the Holy Land’ and himself has described it as an Arab-deforested swamp which incoming Jews from the 1890’s, suffering hardships and failures, have since transformed into a veritable ‘Garden of Eden’.
HEBREW TORAH vs BAYLONIAN TALMUD
The Torah or First Five Books Of The Bible can be seen to be at odds somewhat with the Baylonian Talmud, the latter being so much a part of the returning Pharisiacal Judeans that following the Torah alone is argued by some as un-Jewish (whereas the followers of the Pharisees were argued by Jesus as being a ‘synagogue of Satan’).
LORD JACOB ROTHSCHILD AND BUSINESS FRIENDS
The Rothschild’s long ago ceased seeing themselves as aligned with any nation-state or political order. They formed the first multi-national and are now the first globalists. Leaving aside the post-East India Company’s ‘Committee of 300’ Rothschild members Evelyn, Benjamin, David René and Leopold, there are still many others in the Rothschild family worthy of scrutiny but few professional journalists do so other than skimmingly and approvingly. Lord Jacob de Rothschild has been a prime mover both before and since falling-out with Sir Evelyn, another major figure, about the future course of the N. M. Rothschild Bank, one of many around the world that this cohesive extended family owns yet something of a flagship. (“We have been at the centre of the world’s financial markets for over 200 years.”) He heads the Swiss holding company Rothschild Continuation and is now worth his decades in billions. His son Nathaniel, who is much liked and appears as a sort of press spokesman these days, has a non-Jewish mother.
The name Rothschild is most often linked with the family names Astor, Bundy, Collins, duPont, Freeman, Kennedy, Morgan, Oppenheimer, Rockefeller, Sassoon, Schiff, Taft, Van Duyn but not exclusively. Here are some ‘verbal snapshots’ of Lord Jacob and his ‘friends-by-whom-you-may-know-him’ at their labours:
GOLDSMITH (an open-cast capitalist) and SOROS (an undermining monopolist)
“… six months after his $10 billion attack on the pound and three months before the rout of the franc, George Soros placed a small bet on gold. He announced he was paying Sir James Goldsmith and Lord Rothschild $400 million for 13% in Newmont Mining, a US gold-mining group. Goldsmith said he was putting some of the proceeds into gold options.”
1993, The Independent
The acerbic and extremely politically influential Australian newspaper proprietor Rupert Murdoch first came to the UK in the 1960’s and has been good friends with quiet dynamo Lord Rothschild ever since.
The latter is chairman of Yad Hanadiv. This foundation built and donated the Knesset government buildings also the Supreme Court of Israel. He chairs ‘Jewish Policy Research’ and probably has a global sweep and great depth of reach where Jewish issues/interests and his own coincide.
“Lord Rothschild, the financier, was last night named deputy chairman at BSkyB, a new position, to try to counter the expected furore over the appointment of James Murdoch as chief executive.”
2003, The Independent
KHODORKOVSKY and NEVLIN
“… and he (the Lord Jacob Rothschild) was rumoured to be the trustee of shares in Yukos (the oil company) owned by the jailed Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky – reputedly Russia’s richest man. What is so extraordinary is that Lord Rothschild, a rather quiet, highly cultured grandee who has always shunned the public spotlight in his business affairs, should choose now to tread the boards.”
2003, Finance News Daily (but this billion dollar valued shares trusteeship in the “battle for oil” went first to Leonid Nevlin, it seems, who took refuge in Israel)
Elie Wiesel launched a global campaign to free Khodorskovsky who was “not legally convicted” according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency June 28th 2010
The order for the killings of a number of Yukos’ opponents allegedly came to Pichugin (Yukos’s security chief) from Leonid Nevzlin, a senior Yukos executive and one of Khodorkovsky’s longtime partners.
Source: extracts from ‘Cell Block Four’ by Keith Gessen
Right after his arrest, Khodorkovsky split the company with Leonid Nevlin. But that did not work out well either, since Nevlin fled to Israel to escape charges. In 2003, Khodorkovsky, when he knew that the time of his arrest was coming, passed all his shares to Jacob Rothschild.
The Washington Times
Do the Rothschilds have the magical Midas touch? In this terra-space surveillance era whereby it is practically impossible for a large jet to disappear from all technological eyes, even below surface, Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 (pre-programmed all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing) vanished on Friday night/Saturday morning, March 8th 2014 leaving a mystery unsolved with tragically heavy losses incurred plus an unwitting benefactor, Lord Jacob the 4th Baron Rothschild. It has been widely said that his co-patentees in a most valuable pending patent would automatically cede all patency rights to him when pronounced or presumed dead and that they were all on that missing flight. Actually the inventors’ employers, Freescale Semiconductors, would be considered the patent grantee in their place under a variety of legal systems. And anyway his lordship has, of course, so many thumbs in so many pies that it is barely conceivable that he should have dwelt at all on such a deviant window of opportunity – unless a much bigger and more strategic game might be afoot. Even so, this would seem too difficult to swallow. Perhaps some clue to MH370 (there are none so far) will wash up unexpectedly upon a turning tide.
Ex-Israeli Airforce pilot Rahm Emanuel, now the real boss of Chicago, is considered above the law. He’s used to that. In the 2008 election period, Rahm was the pin-up boy of fund contributors in the securities and investment industries, the hedge funds and private equity firms.
Before departing from the US Congress he with others wrote the 2008 Banker’s Bail Out legislation and lobbied for it also. (It does not seem even remotely possible that theoretically resourceless Wall Street banks paid-out generous donations to members of Congress brokered by White House staff.)
Rahm Emanuel was Obama’s hectoring White House Chief of Staff from 2008 to 2010. It seems he used to lodge for free at the home of Democratic Representative Rosa DeLauro and her husband Philip Greenburg (BP’s lobbyist until 2009).
DeLauro worked there with Gabriella Giffords and Ashley Turton on energy legislation. (Oddly, Giffords was later shot twice in the head at close range in a Shopping Mall yet lived to tell the tale and even had a warship named for her by Raymond Mabus, breaking naval tradition: Turton simply drove her own car into her own house garage and died doing so.)
In the 90’s Rahm was an investment banker for a year and Managing Director for a branch in Chicago of Wall Street investment firm Wasserstein Perella, now part of Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein (Kleinwort Benson UK). In 2-3 years, including 2001, Rahm made over 16 million USD so they say.
On 9/10/2001 over 4,500 “put” options on American Airlines were bought at the Chicago Board Options Exchange but less than 750 “calls”, an unusual imbalance of six times the norm. “Shorts” placed by unidentified executives at Wasserstein Perella & Company were amongst those traded. By 9/12/2001 stocks in the American and United airlines had fallen in line with the 9/11 catatrophe. Indubitably some had advanced ‘inside’ knowledge of the events that were to transpire. The news services around the world made mention at the time that this was happening on an exchange in Italy but did not mention Chicago as I recall. There was imbalanced betting on these airlines earlier (on 9/6 and 9/7 we are told). Apparently the 5,000,000+ US dollars made on “call” orders for 12/9 was left uncollected,.
One of the remarks that we usually hear about Michel de Nostredame, aka Nostradamus, is that he was a Jew. I guess that’s because there is a fey mystique surrounding Jews (see Nostradamus Quatrain VI 18 THE HEBREW ART) that in itself reassures us that he might be the one to help in our sad collective effort to gainsay a perpetually fragile future. Or it could be yet more prejudice if we should combine the theme of ‘racial prejudice’ with ‘Nostradamus prejudice’ (both being especially prevalent throughout the Anglo-Saxon Cluster).
(Also see the section LEGAL JEWISHNESS in UNDERSTANDING NOSTRADAMUS: EXPLORING SOME SUBJECTS RECURRENT IN THE CENTURIES PLUS A FEW ATTRIBUTIONS AND MORE)
I don’t think we should dwell too long on this, he was simply not Jewish by matrilineal descent and he behaved as a good Catholic should – up to a point. I mean that by his family parties alone he would have known clearly the Hebrew Calendar and the Hebrew holy days and, living in the South of France, he would have had much opportunity to acquire knowledge about the Qabbalah too. Through his affluent first family he could well have had access to Jewish books like the Sefer Ha Yetzirah, the Bahir and the Zohar as a boy. (We should also remember that the great patriarch Abraham, the father figure of three great religions, was an astrologer and may have inspired Nostredame to invent his very own approach to Astrology based partly on the dependable backward-forward motion of the Dragon in the North Sky – Michel used it regularly to help him date and locate his visions).
(See the Article NOSTRADAMUS GEOGRAPHY)
Hebrews described Creation as being the coming into being of divine light, divine energy and divine language. The Cabalah, developed largely in the South of France, is inherently philosophy lite and so sometimes slighted by academics as being impenetrable words and numbers, a hidden cause of mischief. Yet the traditional numerology etc. is not so necessary. Actually it sems to be the greatest Jewish gift of all to contemplation and ultimately to meditative enlightenment. The Tree of Life, grounded by the Kingdom and topped-off by the Hollow Crown, has three upright pillars with stations on them with paths between that give it its branching appearance. The stations named on the path are as important as islands in a sea or oases in a desert. But the paths between these stations are also esteemed by the mystic who journeys over them repeatedly and builds up inner knowing of that which is beyond superficial description.
MEDIEVAL EUROPE AND THE JEWS
“… the testimony of Christians against Jews is not believed, whereas Jews are admitted as witnesses against Christians … On Good Friday also, contrary to the law of old, they walk through the streets and public squares, and meeting Christians who everywhere according to custom go to adore the Crucifix, they deride them and strive to prevent them from this duty of adoration. We warn and exhort Your Serene Majesty in the Lord (adding the remission of your sins) that you force the Jews from their presumption …”
Thirteenth Century Pope Innocent III strongly admonishing the King of France as he saw things exactly the other way around from the King, favouring a Jew over a Christian met with anathema by his Papal dictat. Despite being a great centre of Jewish learning France produced multiple expulsions (and returns) of the Jews during the Middle Ages.
Powerful Spain had expelled all Jews in 1492 including, probably, some of Michel Nostredame’s ancestors. In 1497 the Portuguese king followed suit in order to marry a Spanish Princess. France also expelled every Jew so as to fall in line with influential Spain. England had had no Jews at all since the Thirteenth Century. Now, without much need for papal involvement, the West of Europe had no ‘Jew by religion’ living there at all. The Ladino-speaking Sephardims headed East to North Africa or Palestine or Turkey where Sultan Bayazid II encouraged them to settle among the newly established Moslems of Istanbul. From 1516 the European countries gradually established ghettos for Jews, some extensive, mostly self-admininstering but with Christian gatekeepers, starting with Venice where the noun ‘ghetto’ comes from.
Bearing in mind the great persecutions at street level during the times of the Crusades and the Black Death the Jews might have welcomed these gated enclosures and certainly Jew interracting with Jew was much enhanced so driving their already aspected culture deeper. In 1555, the year of publication of the first edition of the Centuries, Jews were forced to wear a badge everywhere South of the Papal States in Italy and a substantial ghetto of 7-acres was started at Travestere in Rome. These Jews participated in the flourishing economic and intellectual climate of the Renaissance but were also taxed specifically to pay for Rome’s involvements in wars.
Jewish ghettos were to last all of Nostredame’s lifetime although certain kings and Popes had still favoured Jews by personal inclination and, indeed, the alternative papal city of Avignon, now part of France, was a tax-free and pleasant environment for them.
(see the Nostraamus Quatrain V 76 THE UNTAXED WANDERER)
Although institutionalized by Christians who imposed curfews the inner ghetto was a place of Jewish institutions like own law courts and own schools further instilling the awareness of being a Jew. The yiddish-speaking Ashkenazi Jewish ghettos of Northern Europe became known centres of story-telling and music.
In 1567, Pope Pius V revoked the small concession given Jews by Pius IV that had enabled them to possess fixed assets up to the value of 1,500 gold ducats. He ordered all Jews to sell such properties to Christians and subsequently ordered all Jews to be expelled from Church States.
It may be true that converted Christian households were ‘judaizing’ in private and the despicable Spanish Inquisition was founded as an adjunct to the statutory watch upon rites of baptized Jews, mainly with Spain’s ‘conversos’ in mind
see “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain” by Benzion Netanyahu, Revisionist Zionist father of Likud Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu (New York, Random House, 1995)
but the effect on an outwardly Christian youth who was raised with Christian friends and attended a Christian University was possibly limited or compartmentalized.
The most lucrative special postion that Jews held in any Christian society was that they were outside the ordained prohibition on usury. Originally they were allowed, as a convenience, to make minor levels of interest on loans which grew over the centuries to charging interest-upon-interest and into the present day with Jewish-owned banks supplying at their discretion interest-bearing new money to governments and with possibly unpayable compounding interest repayments. These are being rolled-over from one generation to another of newborn securitized taxpayers softly enslaving them for debt that had cost the bankers nothing worth mentioning in the first place.
Ghettos disappeared with the ideals of the French Revolution (the Travestere in Rome is simply a Jewish Quarter today) but were later reintroduced brutally under Twentieth Century totalitarianism. Italy under Mussolini even boasted three anti-Jewish newspapers.
In the USA today American Jews control public properties such as those under the aegis of the Port Authority of New York and the private new money supply banks called collectively the Federal Reserve (all 12 locations) and mass-audience entertainment hubs like Hollywood and most all of the mainstream media to boot. Back in the late Nineteenth Century though,
“… it was not intended that Jews should be allowed to abuse the hospitality of Christian countries. Along with these protective ordinances, there existed restrictive and precautionary decrees with regard to them. (These precautionary decrees concerned the professions, education, and business positions.) The civil power was in accord with the Church in this, since, as Delassus says, ‘they both had the same interest in preventing the nations from being invaded by the Jewish element and thereby losing control of society’… the Jews were forbidden to hold public office, civil or military; and this prohibition extended even to the children of converted Jews.”
“The Jews and the Vatican Council” a Paper of 1870 outlining Papal treatment of Jews, as related in ‘L’Osservatore Romano’ for August 13th 1938,
By challenging divers existential assumptions, Jewish intellectuals started and helped develop important Twentieth Century intellectual and political movements and upset many apple-carts, posibly helping to relieve social pressure on the Jews or even putting them in a superior position through the willing cultural decline of the previously great peoples of America Britain Canada and Australia.
The pendulum must ever swing to the extreme of its throw before retracing its journey. Presently, total social inequality means a negative discrimination mechanism built-in to the prevailing mindset whilst total equality would mean non-discrimination writ large. To put it another way, the result of the psychologically enforced principle of social diversity is no more than mediocre mental conformity. Universalism is a coerced social conformity which is the polar opposite of social diversity. Human nature with its arrogantly greedy, personally jealous, acquistive and fearful eruptions is indeed behind most all of our world problems – and needs watching for outbreaks of group hysteria – but at least these are all reprehensibly human. The future presently looks a little inhuman.
Despite appearances, Moslem communities are far more tolerant of Jews than many secular or nominally Christian ones but not of the state of Israel – a unique historic imposition which they find singularly intolerable. Since the 1967 war it is mainly atheistic, evolutionist and materialist Zionists who are running the occupational terror show, we are told. A peaceful Torah sort of Zionism does not seem to worry the Moslem mindset nearly as much.
The Palestine occupation has support from many Israeli residents but it is upsetting to others. Remember that down the centuries the Jews saw themselves as labelled primarily by their religion and not by any attempt at Jewish nationhood. Whether or not there is such a thing as the ‘Jewish birthright’, it remains clear that a substantial part of the thrust of modern Zionism is not specifically Judaic in origin and attracts a disturbing sort of Gentile following.
“A creeping policy of de facto annexation”
Zionist Gad Yaacobi, then Israeli Minister of Economics and Finance
THE LONG-AWAITED MARTIAL MESSIAH
Following in the wake of the old rabbinic-talmudic-pharisaic ideology, the Jews are still waiting for their military saviour. As E. Michael Jones has written, the Jews rejected Jesus as their Christ largely because He was not a military leader and not because they thought He was not enough of a Jew.
CENTRAL BANKING: MONEY ISSUED AS DEBT
Creating money from nothing is legalized counterfeiting and with self-perpetuating interest payable by nation debtors and wars arranged to please the protection racketeers this forms a working model for expropriating the entire wealth of the globe by alternating war with peace. So where did this Big Idea come from?
“My sense is that like any organization, any corporation, or any sort of long-term plan you’ve got different factions and I think that all the different, if we can say Zionist, factions are working together but by ‘Zionist’ I don’t mean people who are just focused on Israel, I’m not just talking about Jews focused on Israel, but Zionism in the broader sense of the idea of Jewish supremacism, that Jews are a master race and have a God-given right to rule over other human beings, the Goyim, as animals as, as chattel slaves. Now I think that there are these Zionists who are Washington DC based or London based and they may, you know, not worry so much about that piece of land called Israel so Netanyahu I don’t think is calling (the) shots. I think that you have to look higher up and look at the Hassidic organizations and the Orthodox organizations who are following something more along the lines of Talmudism and that they influence Liberal and Reform Jews and that even though these Liberal and Reform Jews may not dress like, you know, the old Orthodox and Hassidic Rabbis, that their sense of supremacism comes from these interpretations of those texts.”
Joaquin Flores expressing verbally his personal opinion, 2014
A claim that the sometime ‘Court Jew’ family de Rothschild have gained the upper hand over more than half the whole world might well get the response “I don’t agree that one group alone runs the world, it’s more like a conglomerate of special interests”. True, true, many views of this interweave of powers ring true. But eventually the cui bono ball bounces one way home.
There must have been much Jewish Israeli pride in the appointment of Stanley Fischer as vice chairman of the United States Federal Reserve. He was former governor of the Bank of Israel and now knots and unknots the purse-strings of the U.S. financial system. I think he is not an American but these things can get easily fixed and anyway unelected persons of Middle Eastern nationality are mostly welcomed in Washington DC today.
Out of interest, ‘sayanim’ is apparently the name given to any facilitator from out of the Jewish diaspora who is recruited by the intel agency Mossad by reason of the office that they hold in their country.
“It is highly probable that the bulk of the Jews’ ancestors never lived in Palestine at all, which witnesses the power of historical assertion over fact.”
H.G. Wells, Outline of History
Philistines groups reached the Southern coast of what would be called Israel. The one that arrived in Gerar came into conflict with Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael. In 1194 BC another group had attempted the invasion of Egypt from Crete but were successfully deflected by Rameses III. This band seized the adjacent coastal area and founded the historic settlements of Gaza, Ascalon, Ashdod, Ekron and Gat that settlers from Mediterranean islands later overran.
In ‘Philistine Syria’, as the Greeks called it, the Hebrew religion was ‘political geography pertinent’:
`And ye have divided this land to you, according to the tribes of Israel; and it hath come to pass, ye separate it for an inheritance to yourselves, and to the sojourners who are sojourning in your midst, who have begotten sons in your midst, and they have been to you as native, with the sons of Israel, with you they are separated for an inheritance in the midst of the tribes of Israel. And it hath come to pass, in the tribe with which the sojourner sojourneth, there ye give his inheritance – an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.
Judaism came there with the Jews returning from Babylonia and extended to the settlements East of the River Jordan (Transjordan) and out from there to wherever a Jew might be on Earth and was characteristically exclusive to the Jews, not to their geography.
When Rome came-to-town there arose a dilemma between Jewish apprehensions of Providence and the Romanic propriety of Province leading eventually to Bar Kochbar’s revolution and the subsequent expulsion of the Jews.
Fast-forward to 1947: the mooted UN Partition Plan shows an Arab Palestinian State surrounding the largest section of a Jewish Palestinian State. The Arabs rejected the partition of Palestine. The British Government announced its intention to terminate their sector of the Mandate. Both Jewish and Arab populations had increased in anticipation as it were. The Jews declared the independence of the State of Israel in May 1948. Starting with the 1948 Palestine War Israel then took far more territory than was proposed by the UN Plan and Jordan captured the West Bank. In what became known as the Nakba catastrophe villages vanished and nearly a quarter of a million Arabs took to their heels.
The All-Palestine Government in the Gaza Strip was announced in 1948 and subsequently ended up in Egypt before being abandoned. The balance has subsequently moved much more towards overall Jewish control (excellently equipped and trained Israel has faced a fistful of major military attacks and trounced them all) and we now hear about ‘Occupied Palestine’ as being the nub of the problem.
Between the World Wars the region of Palestine was one of the League of Nations mandate territories. In 1917 the British Government’s Earl of Balfour wrote a ‘gentleman’s promise’ to Lord Walter Rothschild, a complex man, that gave him control over Palestine. Although a promise has no legal standing the British later went on to take Palestine back from the Turks and put down the ongoing Arab uprising before materializing the Balfour Declaration in reality.
Israeli State sovereignty over all of Palestine, as they and others clearly perceive it, has never been officially recognized by any country. A unilateral annexation of territory occupied during war is contrary to the Geneva Convention and, in fact, the present situation is anything but stable and undisputed.
The placename Palestine/Palestina (extending to ‘the Palestine coasts’) appears only rarely in the Bible. The text-book account is that the Romans had originally empoyed an adjective, Palaistinei,as their new name but for my money Palestine seems as likely as not to have been derived from the terms ‘Philistine’ and ‘palash’ (meaning rolling, not static, unsettled, nomadic). The people were of the greater Arab nation and were mostly oblivious to the official Roman term. Today the term ‘Palestinian’ almost seems a strategic fabrication:
“There is no Palestine in the Bible, our country was for centuries part of Syria. ‘Palestine’ is alien to us.”
Syrian Arab leader Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi addressing the 1930’s Peel Commission
This view was upheld in the 1950’s by Ahmed Shukairy but by 1964 he was the first chairman of the ‘Palestine Liberation Organization’.
Historically Jezreel and Galilea had been a place of wandering shepherds and even they not all of the time:
“For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee… Nazareth is forlorn… Jericho lies a mouldering ruin… Bethlehem and Bethany… poverty and humiliation… untenanted by any living creature… A desolate country whose soil is rich enough… given over wholly to weeds… a silent, mournful expanse… a desolation… We never saw a human being on the whole route… Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere … Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes”
Mark Twain, “Innocents Abroad”
Twain writes as if this land had been emptied by disaster or the victim of a chevauchée raid. Most things are the product of their history, or so it seems, and historic periods of limited rainfall and acute dessication may have prompted an unsettled, sparse, nomadic way of living there. And yet we still read today of the ‘permanent presence of Jews’ as the indigenous ethnic guardians of the Southern Levant-Southern Syria-Eretz Israel.
For what it’s worth, when the UK Government’s Porton Down Military Science Park unsuccessfully applied for permission to test nuclear shells thereabouts they labelled their empty set-aside target area ‘Palestine’.
Here’s a contrasting description of Palestine, one of a land well worth colonizing, liberating or usurping:
“There were over one thousand villages in Palestine at the turn of the 19th century. Jerusalem, Haifa, Gaza, Jaffa, Nablus, Acre, Jericho, Ramle, Hebron and Nazareth were flourishing towns. The hills were painstakingly terraced. Irrigation ditches crisscrossed the land. The citrus orchards, olive groves and grains of Palestine were known throughout the world. Trade, crafts, textiles, cottage industry and agricultural production abounded.”
Ralph Schoenman, The Hidden History of Zionism, find it at http://www.marxists.de/middleast/schoenman/ch02.htm
Was ‘Jesus of Nazareth’, or whatever name you personally prefer to know Him by, a Jew? As usual it all depends on what’s meant by the word ‘Jew’.
Jesus was a Greek name (mentioned in the Greek New Testament by both Paul and his admirer Luke) and so often encountered in Jerusalem yet possibly unheard of in Galilee. (There are several possibilities of other sources that have been proposed – from the old Hebrew name Yeshua/Joshua to the Greek name Isous and its Latinized version Iesvs – but we should really not fall into the trap of worshipping a name!)
Jesus of Nazareth was not in any sense a normal Jew of the times. (‘A Marginal Jew’, J.P. Meier.) He was not a follower of the Pharisees nor the dominant Edomites aka Idumeans whose supposed progenitor was Esau the brother of Jacob. In fact Judea and Galilee may well have been two separate political entities in practice and His soft country slur would have revealed that he came from among Galilean folk and was not one of the cosmopolitan city-slickers of philhellenic Jerusalem. We may suppose that His countrified drawl could well have raised smiles and lifted eyebrows there:
others said, `This is the Christ;’ and others said, `Why, out of Galilee doth the Christ come?
John 7:41 (Youngs Literal Translation Bible)
It is puzzling then that the New Testament has the baby Jesus born in Bethelehem in Judea. (The population census that apparently provoked this punishing trip is not recorded, it seems, by any extra-biblical history.)
“And Jesus having been born in Beth-Lehem of Judea, in the days of Herod the king, lo, mages from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is he who was born king of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and we came to bow to him.’ And Herod the king having heard, was stirred, and all Jerusalem with him”
Matthew 2:1-3 (Youngs Literal Translation Bible)
In a way perhaps characteristic of ironic Jewish humour, Jesus seized on the ‘contrapuntal comparative’ when He stated that whosoever wants to save his life shall lose it whilst he who would lose it will keep it. (In Asia today we may hear something similar – though not so profoundly prophetic – in the popular expression “Hope for something and you may get nothing: expect nothing and you may get something”.)
Being one supposed in descent from the tribe founded by Judah (or otherwise from those who returned to Judah after the Israelite exile to Babylon) He can be said to have been a true fit to the odd-sounding adjective ‘Judahitic’.
At the time of Jesus there was automatic right of citizenship in Judah for the Idumeans from which came King Herod’s lineage before he converted to Pharisiacal Judaism. Jesus repeatedly criticized all Pharisees. (Eight separate condemnations are recorded by the Gospel of Matthew).
WHO ARE THE JEWS?
The 1611 King James version of the Bible logically transfers the split handlebar ‘Idumaean-Judean’ into a singular form ‘Iewes’ then re-lettered it as the more modern ‘Jews’ such as in 2 Kings 16:5-6 wherein Israel defeats the Jews:
Then doth Rezin king of Aram go up, and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel, to Jerusalem, to battle … and casteth out the Jews from Elath, and the Aramaeans have come in to Elath, and dwell there unto this day.
The word Jew here was possibly meant to include Canaanites, Edomites or Hittites or else an admixture of these plus some others of the Hyksos/Habiru (the Hebrews). According to this ancient bible text the ‘Jews’ were not the Israelites. Please note: there is or has been plenty of Jew-hate in Europe and denying the whole Jewish group some sort of long-term association with Israel over past millennia has sometimes been a big part of that provoking some hot denials such as,
‘DNA tester: 75 percent of Jews trace ancestry to Middle East, Founder of U.S.-based company says that anti-Jewish polemics can’t hide the science proving that Jews did indeed originate from the region’.
This result came from one genealogy company’s data base. Those tested included American and Arab Jews and Moslems.
On the other hand, it is probably the Khazar Jews of Europe, Russia and America who most practice a Zionistic Babylonian Talmudism or ‘Judaism’ today.
Whilst we cannot say that the Ashkenazi are not all descended from Israelites because we do not know for sure what became of the lost tribes of Israel – James’s “twelve tribes scattered abroad” which Peter said were “strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithnia” – some day the science of genomics and its trails may well explode some mighty myths. What we may say is that the Khazars who once covered a million square miles of Eastern Europe/Central Asia were once not Jews at all but became so by adoption and they are not the only Jewish group practicing Judaism who are not Judeans in a literal sense.
The brilliant Arthur Koestler, a proud Ashkenazi, claimed the Khazars of Khazaria retitled themselves in line with the prophesy in Jeremiah that the Ashkenaz will take part in the conquest of Babylon.
51:27 Lift ye up an ensign in the land, Blow a trumpet among nations, Sanctify against it nations, Summon against it the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz …
The Khazars were a non-semitic Asiatic-Mongolian nation. Their royalty slyly converted to Judaism in the first millennium to slow the full force of Muslim and Christian incursions. But a century later the Slavs then invaded and dispersed their nation anyway. They became the Yiddish-speaking Jews of Central and Eastern Europe and Russia who now account for the vast majority of Jews out in the world, the New Jewish Dispersion or Diaspora.
“Our teacher Gershom the light of the exile” was Rabbeinu Gershom ben Judah, (died circa 1030) a Talmudist and Halakhist. It seems a Khazar/Ashkenazi community made up his student fold.
One of his strictest rules was against spying upon the communications of others.
Slim and fragmentary evidence is being sported that the Jewish elite of Khazaria remained concentrated in the capital whilst the surrounding masses of semi-nomadic tribes remained untouched by Judaism and became largely Moslem as the Jewish leadership elite eventually shrank to nothing. The mass exodus associated with the destruction of Khazaria is denied. Instead those are claimed as the Karaite Jews passing through Khazaria over a period of wandering and going on to found the East European Jewry or otherwise trickling into Central Europe from Crimea.
Back to the Hebrews. It is not certain that the Hebrews were once kept captive in Egypt. If anything these peoples were an amalgamation of migrant worker groups come to wealthy Egypt for work which was plentiful in building and associated activities. New excavations have shown that workforces were looked after too well to be slaves and one man’s bones and his tomb reveal that a lowly labourer could rise to become an important person in the land, perhaps marrying with a high-placed Egyptian. An invasive semite band called the Hyksos had lent their name to these workers. These had invaded at a time of Egyptian social disintegration but were later subdued and Pharoah Thut-Moses III moved them over into Canaan ( the land that the Romans were to name Palestine) at which time the Egyptians also called them the Habiru (Hebrews). They took Amen, ‘the lord of lords’, with them. Sigmund Freud among others has argued that the biblical Moses was Egyptian.
Much later a mass of Israelites were released from Babylon’s subjugation and most dispersed never to return home but those 5 to 6 thousand who did go to Judea made up the Kingdom of Judah being mainly of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin together with other bewildered stragglers. Apparently Jerusalem and two nearby towns rehoused this residual group which was to come under Edomite dominance. So-called Babylonian Talmudism – a deceptive and ritualistic expression of extreme Baylonian Pharisiacal interpretations and comments, some fine but others rather repellent – came with them.
Hebrewism died in Babylon and Judaism rose from its ashes
Rabbi Stephen Wise
‘Take heed to yourselves of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy’
Both Christian Zionists and Biblical Fundamentalists choose to qualify themselves as ‘His chosen’ or ‘God’s people’ by simply ignoring the following warning from Jesus:
“This people doth draw nigh to Me with their mouth, and with the lips it doth honour Me, but their heart is far off from Me; and in vain do they worship Me, teaching teachings – commands of men.”
There were several kinds of Judeans in the days of King Herod the Great including native Judahites, naturalized Idumeans and the ultra-influential Babylonic Pharisees.
Jesus seemingly held the Pharisees responsible for criminal acts of their ancestors against Judahite priests and prophets. This seems perhaps uncharacteristic and may even smack of political interpolation but He is quoted as saying not only:
`Blind Pharisee! cleanse first the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside of them also may become clean.
`Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye are like to whitewashed sepulchres, which outwardly indeed do appear beautiful, and within are full of bones of dead men, and of all uncleanness;
so also ye outwardly indeed do appear to men righteous, and within ye are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. Matthew 23:26-28
`Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and adorn the tombs of the righteous,
and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
So that ye testify to yourselves, that ye are sons of them who did murder the prophets Matthew 23:29-31
Both John the Baptizer and Jesus of Nazareth fell fatally foul of the Edomite ruling dynasty of Judea. Jesus condemned the Pharisiacal Jewish Talmud that legalized such debauched degradations as were brought back from decadent Babylonia including specifically condoned paedophilia. Here is a hidden aspect of the Western World of today, its ‘elite’ are immersed beneath public covers and indulging secretly in the Babylonian-type practices rife among them (that require mysterious disappearances as are now occurring everywhere in seemingly sacrificial quantities) and are separate from the Jesus admirers and all others among the common people – the goyim who are simply not sheep nor horned beasts but worthy men and women and who now want this stopped, finally and forever.
The Edomites had become fully assimilated in Judea by the forced assimilation of the Edomite nation under John Hyrcanus in 120 BC:
“They were hereafter no other than Jews”
The Talmud’s use of the name Edom became adapted to represent Rome and its Christianity. The priests of plenty (Constantine ruled that this clerical class should never be compelled to physical labours and so it is to this day) have betrayed the folk who were guided by their unquestionably hypocritical interpretations.
Likewise Revelation, a dream by a follower of Jesus the Christ and written with inspiring, intriguing spiritual undertones, has these words
2:9 I have known thy works, and tribulation, and poverty – yet thou art rich – and the evil-speaking of those saying themselves to be Jews, and are not, but be a synagogue of the Adversary.
THE TERM ISRAELITE IS BIBLICAL
“Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew ‘Israelite’ or ‘Hebrew’. The first Hebrews may not have been Jews at all.”
The Jewish Almanac of 1980
The new interest in historical genetics-based lines is likely to prove some family trees false or else will bastardize lengthy family lineages once they are held up to the light especially those underlining regal or national or political histories.
However, a Pharisiacal cult like Babylonian Talmudism is a matter of social adoption whether by Judeans or by Khazars.
Jews are distinct by faith and by works: not by race. This statement may seem controversial to some but the true races of the world are few and quite mixed up today: the most variable in appearance are the Caucasians but there are variations also in the Chinese, Negro, Eskimo and “Native American” races. Even so they are considered physically distinct. No other nounal description of a physical apartness may be allowed under ‘biological discrimination’. Some locational or familial group in-breeding would develop distinctive features by a kind of genetically exaggerated process and yet not necessarily so. To include tribal traits would lead to questions such as ‘How to identify an East Asian Jew?’ this being unanswerable by stereotypes.
‘Anti-Semitic’ (a factually incorrect term of slander, semitic being a multi-cultural and ranging term) and ‘Conspiracy Theory’ (a CIA-inspired semi-satirical or scornful term and yet the most fruitful avenue for probing deliberate misrecordings of history) are both descriptions deprived of their true meanings by repeated misuse to the point of serving as Pavlovian bells calling up faithful team-dogs.
“The anti-Semite . . . understands but one language, and he must be dealt with on his own level. The Purim Jews stood up for their lives. American Jews, too. must come to grips with our contemporary anti-Semites. We must fill our jails with anti-Semitic gangsters. We must fill our insane asylums with anti-Semitic lunatics. We must combat every alien Jew-hater. We must Harass and prosecute our Jew-baiters to the extreme limits of the laws. We must humble and shame our anti-Semitic hoodlums to such an extent that none will wish or dare to become ‘fellow-travelers’.”
Rabbi Leon Spitz sermonizing at Purim (from the ‘American Hebrew’ of March 1st 1946)
To those early Judaens who had become Jesus worshippers ‘the Way’ was non-violent, forgiving and loving. Bloody Constantine both regularized Roman Christianity as his Imperial Religion and introduced the death penalty for any martial conscientious objections based on any prior versions of the Christian faith.
Either way the split with Judaism is obvious and lingering. Even a fair-minded Jewish webpage such as Forward.com is nonetheless coy about using certain words;
“Visitors learn much about the Jewish backgrounds of various rockers. What we don’t learn, however, is how Judaism influenced their music, either as something to inspire or react against. For instance, a plaque informs us that Bob Dylan was born Robert Allen Zimmerman, but we don’t learn about how writers have argued that Dylan rejected his Judaism and became an uber-assimilationist, as David E. Kaufman wrote in “Jewhooing the Sixties.” Others have argued the very opposite — Seth Rogovoy posits that Dylan’s lyrics were actually inspired by his Jewish heritage.”
No mention of the words ‘Christian conversion’ merely ‘uber-assimilation’. This not one of those incongruous juxtapositions such as ‘conforming to diversity’ or ‘an independent branch’ but one of simply incompatible thought-processes and distinct emotional responses. As for those who are proud Christian Zionists,
“… they’re scum, but don’t tell them that. We need all the useful idiots we can get right now.”
Israel’s Prime Minister ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu
“(it is) essential to maintain the basis of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, in light of international and internal challenges to this basic determination. By means of the law, we will strengthen the State of Israel as Jewish and democratic, and full equality, before the law, of every citizen without reference to religion, race or gender.”
Netanyahu on a new Basic Law to enshrine Israel as the nation-state of all Jewish people.
But read this:
“Some readers might be surprised that a Jew would cite “religious” objections to the existence of the State of Israel, but these objections are actually well-known. They are based on a fundamental principle of Jewish faith, recorded in the Talmud, that the exile of the Jews is a divine decree, and that it is our sacred obligation to accept this decree, to live humbly in the lands into which we have been dispersed, never to attempt to resettle our ancestral land by force or to establish our national sovereignty by our own power, but to wait in repentance until God redeems us. It is for this reason that Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky was appointed to speak on behalf of the traditional Jews of Jerusalem to the United Nations, where on July 16th of 1947 he explained the Jewish theology of exile and desire of his community to live under Palestinian rule, concluding, “We furthermore wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.”
Deeper still than the sacred duty to accept our exile, traditional Judaism is simply anchored in an aversion to violence as a means to solve problems.”
“Israel is today the most dangerous place in the world for Jews. Since its establishment, more Jews were hurt in wars and terror attacks that took place in Israel than anywhere else. The war in Gaza took this one step backward – it endangered world Jews as well, as no other war has before it. The Jewish home, the national refuge, not only doesn’t provide refuge, but even threatens…”
Some time ago the Israeli military spokesman Nachman Abramovic demonized Palestinian children by stating:
“They may look young to you, but these people are terrorists at heart. Don’t look at their deceptively innocent faces, try to think of the demons inside each of them. I am absolutely certain these people would grow to be evil terrorists if we allowed them to grow. Would you allow them to grow to kill your children or finish them off right now? Honest and moral people ought to differentiate between true humans and human animals. We do kill human animals and we do so unapologetically. Besides, who in the West is in a position to lecture us on killing human animals. After all, whose hands are clean?”
There are indeed some dangerous child gangs around. Although this is surprising to most, it is an old truth known to inner city police and security guards everywhere. But generally demonizing the enemy is one of the oldest tricks of war in that it becomes much easier to avoid a personal moral dilemma upon robbing the innocents of their ‘collaterally damaged’ lives. (Historically, ‘collateral’ is a term used for financial pledging.)
On publicly criticizing Israel’s Operation Protective Edge (alternative translation: Operation Steep Cliff) communicator Max Blumenthal, a Jew, was accused of “Abusing the memory of the Holocaust” and subsequently commented “In Germany anti-semitism is defined as, apparently, everyone who is a critic of the Israeli government.”
On December 2nd 2014 the U.N. General Assembly (the only body where all 193 member states are represented) approved by a 161-5 vote a non-binding resolution introduced by Egypt that Israel now foregoes their possession of nuclear weapons and place its nuclear facilities under international overseers. The United States and Canada voted against. As it happens the Knesset was promptly dissolved by Prime Minister Netanyahu citing his deep disapproval of ministerial dissent on another matter.
I want to bring some positive Jewish Proverbs into play. They have influenced for the better many peoples around the World.
The mis-attributed Book of Proverbs is not Temple material. It simply higlights the spiritual regime of the Hebrew God …
2:20-22 That thou dost go in the way of the good, And the paths of the righteous dost keep. For the upright do inhabit the earth, And the perfect are left in it, And the wicked from the earth are cut off, And treacherous dealers plucked out of it!
… and it is at the heart of the Torah service:
3:13 and18 O the happiness of a man hath found wisdom … A tree of life she be to those laying hold on her, And whoso is retaining her be happy.
(etz hayim hi lamahazikim ba v’tomkheha m’ushar)
Here are some less formal sayings to convey a little flavour to the usual sterile, stereotyped analyses of Jewishness:
Let your house be open wide. (Pirkei Avos 1:5)
The guest does more for the host than the host does for the guest (Midrash Rus Rabba 5:9)
Sixty pains afflict the teeth of him who hears the sound of his neighbour eating but himself hath nothing to eat (B. K. 92b; D. 649)
One man weeps without knowing why, another laughs without knowing why; woe to him who knows not to distinguish between the good and the bad! (Sanh. 103a; D. 161)
If thy sister’s son is a government official, do not pass him by when thou seest him in the market place (Jom. 18a; D. 37)
Many old camels carry on their backs the hides of young camels (Sanh. 52a; D. 534)
“L’fum tzara agra, according to the effort is the reward.” Ben Hei Hei, Ethics of the Fathers, 5:26
(I remember from my childhood a large glass ashtray gifted by an impresario bearing the cheery words “From the sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat thy bread, Greetings from Emile Littler”.)
Boldness is royal power without a crown (Sanh. 105a; D. 286)
“If I am not for me, who is for me; and if I am for myself, what am I. And if not now, when?” Hillel, Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14
Whosoever possesses these three qualities belongs to the disciples of Abraham our father: a generous eye, a humble spirit, and a meek soul. Mishnah Avot 5:19
And here’s the lovely and much-loved American comedienne Sarah Silverman surrendering her life’s work to her own personal ego-monster by brandishing what appears to be a male narcissist’s sharp-edge at a common Jewish identity problem:
“I hope the Jews did kill the Christ, I will do it again! I’d f…ing do it again in a second!”
Actually some famous Jewish literature extensively describes Christianity with lines like
“waste material excreted from the body of the Jewish people.”
From Haaretz for 24th December 2004 (Christmas Eve) in the article ‘For Them, It’s Wholly Unholy’ by Shahar Ilan
“American Jews have a ‘Christmas problem’.”
‘A Kosher Christmas: Tis the Season to Be Jewish’ by Joshua Eli Plaut, Rutgers University Press, 2012
According to the fey Jewish percept ‘Nitel Night’, upon the nativity of ‘that man’ (Jesus) not a trace of holiness shall present itself and the controlling ‘klipot’ or evil forces will turn every act of divine worship to their own parasitical ends.
Yet like all persecuted minorities, Jews are capable of wildly over-the-top self denigrations as much as self-assertive trumpetings:
“A Jewish person is a caricature of a normal, natural human being, both physically and spiritually. As an individual in society he revolts and throws off the harness of social obligations, knows no order nor discipline.”
The Hashomer Hatzair
In spirited Sarah Silverman’s defence, not that she requires anybody else to defend her, here’s more of the official Talmud line on Jesus:
Jesus (not Yeshu) is definitively described in the Talmud as the bastard son (Yebamoth 49b) of a harlot (Sanhedrin 106a) called Miriam the Hairdresser. He died young and went to boil in Hell.
Whoever mocks the words of the sages in punished in boiling excrement.
Jesus was a magician and a fool. Mary was an adulteress
All this aside, the identity of Jesus of Nazareth is frequently attributed to the talmudic Balaam, a man supposedly born ready-circumcised who had the noble gift of prophecy plus the ability to inflence outcomes by blessings but then turned to wickedness and low sorcery by base magic so provoking God to take his gifts away.
“Hast thou heard how old Balaam was? – He replied: It is not actually stated but since it is written, “Bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days” it follows that he was thirty-three or thirty-four years old – You said well. I have seen the chronicle of Balaam and it said ‘At 33 years Balaam the lame was killed by Pinchas the robber’”
Sanhedrin 106b quoting Psalms, 55:24
The superficial resemblance of the name Pinchas to the name Pontius may be a simple coincidence. (Pontius Pilate gets no mention at all in the Talmud.)
Defence of the Talmud is usually based on the general good that it conveys rather than an inevitable dismay at some of its pro-paedophilia particulars:
“The Talmud is, then, the written form of that which in the time of Jesus, was called the Traditions of the Elders.”
Rabbi Michael L. Rodkinson
“We follow the Talmud. It is our common law.”
Orthodox Jew and famous author Herman Wouk
“When the serpent came unto Eve, he infused filthy lust in her: when Israel stood on Sinai, that lust was eliminated”
The Talmud (in Abodah Zarah 22b, apparently)
A VULGAR IMAGE OF THE JEW PERPETUATES ITSELF
“The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order, the “children of Israel” will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled in which it is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”
From his ‘Letter to Karl Marx’ as published in ‘La Revue de Paris’ of June 1928, a literary ‘revue humaniste’ of long-standing which had, without any previous deep biasing, provided many translations of international writers.
So how fake was this? Was the ‘New World Order’ even being referenced publicly as early as 1928? Well, yes it was and Woodrow Wilson knew the phrase well but ‘The New World Order’, a lengthy fiction/prediction/social manual by H.G.Wells, was not released until 1940 and the title also appeared on a Map of the Future World completed in 1940 and published by the ‘American Teacher’ magazine in June 1942.
Here is Baruch Levy’s comeuppance –
“Professional anti-Semites are continually discovering secret Jewish “conspiracies” with which to inflame the passions of their ignorant followers. Simple-minded people avidly accept simple-minded explanation that all of the world’s troubles are caused by the Jews.
There is a regular business of producing forged Jewish documents, and it is very plain to any serious student that hate peddlers have scoured the earth in search of “documents” which are then placed in files, for use at appropriate times. Thus we find that a reactionary magazine, Revue De Paris, in its issue of June 1, 1928, carried a long and Prime article in French, whose translated title is “The Secret Origins of Bolshevism: Henry Heine and Karl Marx.” It is a vicious, anti-Semitic article, which tells of a Jewish “conspiracy” to conquer the world and then ties this imaginary conspiracy to Communism. As part of its “proof,” it quotes from an alleged letter from one, Baruch Levy, to Karl Marx, the co-founder of the modern Communist movement.
Nowhere in the article is there any inkling of who Baruch Levy could possibly be, excepting that he is referred to as a Neo-Messianist (whatever that is supposed to denote). The Baruch Levy “letter” outlines a Jewish plan to take over the world. Nowhere in the writings of Karl Marx is there any mention of Baruch Levy and/or his alleged letter. In fact, one can be reasonably certain Marx would have consigned it to the incinerator, if such a letter had reached him. Revue De Paris does not state where it obtained the alleged letter. The obvious reason – that it is a fraud – can easily be deduced from the internal evidence. Its leitmotif is almost identical with the central theme of the Rabbi Rabinovich fabrication (which we have already discussed) and the fraudulent Protocols of the Elders of Zion (which we will soon examine). In other words, any sane person, who has a knowledge of history, can readily recognize the Baruch Levy letter as a palpable fraud.
Thirty-seven years later, Hal Hunt quoted the Baruch Levy letter on the front page of his hate sheet, National Chronicle of March 11, 1965, along with the Kol Nidre hoax and other fraudulent items. How did the editor of a small-circulation sheet obtain an article from a Parisian magazine and how did he obtain an English translation of this essay? The answers are obvious to anyone who does research into the propaganda techniques of the hate publications: it is a stock item, which travels from one hate publication to another, because the members of this fraternity read and dote on each other’s fulminations.
The Baruch Levy hoax has appeared periodically, and will probably continue to be used until there is no longer a market for this kind of merchandise.
We asked Dr. Herbert Aptheker, Director of the American Institute for Marxist Studies, to do some additional research about the alleged letter from Baruch Levy to Karl Marx. In a letter, dated September 5, 1967, Dr. Aptheker stated:
I have examined (long book list omitted) and find no mention of a Baruch Levy or any indication of any letter in any way similar to that you mention. These are the volumes which contain the letters . . . of Marx and Engels, commencing in 1842 and going through 1870 (all so far published). I think one may therefore say with great confidence that the letter is a hoax, as one would believe in any case from its contents.”
Extracts from “The Hoaxers – Plain Liars, Fancy Liars and Damned Liars” by Morris Kominsky, Branden Press, Boston, 1970.
The onetime Communist candidate Kominsky explained elsewhere some practical details as to how the USA could achieve neo-fascism and enter upon a Third World War, which may or may not have been a wise move on his part.
THE MATERIAL SOUL
“The United Nations is nothing but a trap-door to the Red World’s immense concentration camp. We pretty much control the U.N.”
Harold Wallace Rosenthal, ‘The Hidden Tyranny’
“The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism.”
‘A Program for the Jews and Humanity’ by Rabbi Harry Waton, 1939, NYC, Astoria Press
“There is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself, in the fact that so many Jews are Bolshevists, in the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism at many points are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism.”
The Jewish Chronicle, April 4, 1919
“Marx did not actually originate anything; he merely “streamlined” Talmudism for Gentile consumption.”
“What is the basis of Judaism? A practical passion and greed for profit. To what can we reduce his religious worship? To extortion. What is his real God? Cash!”
Karl Marx as quoted by the Guardian of
But surely communism, fascism and a barracks-style experience of life are synonymous with those being subdued in consequence of some enormous financial disparity? Is this so for the extremely rich elite, new or old, whose freedoms and playgrounds continue to extend incontinently under totalitarian systems?
“Gentiles exist only to serve Jews as slaves. Goyim were only born to serve us. Without that they have no place in the world. Only to serve the people of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They are only here to work. They will work, they will plow. They will reap. We will sit like effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created”
Rabbi Yosef, Jerusalem Post, 2011
“You have given it all way. You have forgotten how to be Jews.”
The despicably depraved jinglejangler, or D.J., Jimmy Savile, a British ‘mister fix-it’ who was the best friend of Inner Circle Royalty, and plural Prime Ministers, addressing the Israeli Cabinet in session, by request.
We intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed, not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed.
Even if reason tells us, even shouts with all its force the very absurdity of this confrontation between the small and insignificant people of Israel and the rest of humanity… as absurd, as incoherent and as monstrous as it may seem, we are engaged in close combat between Israel and the Nations – and it can only be genocidal and total because it is about our and their identities.
Yitzhak Attia, Israel Magazine, April 2003
“This is what Trotsky, a Jewish man, was preparing for Russia as the implementation of Communism, which Marx based on the Babylonian Talmud for Gentiles:
“We should turn Her into a desert populated with white Niggers. We will impose upon them such a tyranny that was never dreamt by the most hideous despots of the East. The peculiar trait of that tyranny is that it will be enacted from the left rather than the right and it will be red rather than white in color.
“Its color will be red literally because we would spill such torrents of blood that they will pale all human losses of the capitalist wars and make the survivors shudder.
The largest overseas banks will cooperate with us most closely. If we win the Revolution and squash Russia, on the funeral pyres of its remains we will strengthen the power of Zionism and become a power the whole world would drop in the face of on its knees. We will show the world what real power means.
By way of terror and blood baths we will bring the Russian intelligentsia into a state of total stupor, to idiocy, to the animal state of being. So far our young men dressed in leather – the sons of watch repair men from Odessa and Orsha, Gomel and Vinnitza – oh, how beautifully, how brilliantly do they master hatred of everything Russian! With what a great delight do they physically destroy the Russian intelligentsia – officers, engineers, teachers, priests, generals, agronomists, academicians, writers!”
Begunov, ‘Secret Forces in the History of Russia’
“Let us recognize that we Jews are a distinct nationality of which every Jew, whatever his country, his station, or shade of belief, is necessarily a member.”
Louis D. Brandeis, former Justice of the US Supreme Court
“Any trial based on the assumption that Jews and goyim are equal is a total travesty of justice.”
Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, June 6th 1989
” … we are a race.”
Rabbi Stephen Wise, 1938, NY Herald Tribune
“Jew and Gentile are two worlds, between you Gentiles and us Jews there lies an unbridgeable gulf … There are two life forces in the world: Jewish and Gentile … I do not believe that this primal difference between Gentile and Jew is reconcilable… In everything, we are destroyers – even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief … We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands.”
‘You Gentiles’ by Maurice Samuel
“You cannot be English Jews. We are a race, and only as a race can we perpetuate. Our mentality is of a Hebraic character, and differs from that of an Englishman. Enough subterfuges! Let us assert openly that we are International Jews.”
Gerald Soman, Chairman, the World Jewry Fellowship’s official manifesto of January 1st 1935
“The Jews are called human beings, but the non-Jews are not humans. They are beasts.”
Talmud (in the Baba mezia, 114b, apparently)
“Even though God created the non-Jew they are still animals in human form. It is not becoming for a Jew to be served by an animal. Therefore he will be served by animals in human form.”
Midrasch Talpioth (1855, Warsaw)
“If a Jew has a non-Jewish servant or maid who dies, one should not express sympathy to the Jew. You should tell the Jew: “God will replace your loss, just as if one of his oxen or asses had died.”

Talmud (in Sanhedrin 74b apparently)
“The souls of non-Jews come from impure sprits and are called pigs.”

Chassidism, however, is a movement within Judaism (founded by Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, d.1760) that puts stress on serving G-d through the mystical and the loving in addition to the law-based aspects of Judaism.
ON LARGE SCALE MIGRATION
Throughout much of recent history, and before, Israel has been in ‘foreign hands’ and most Jews have lived in the diaspora. A dichotomy exists between the inclusive Jewish position on the subject of large-scale immigation with protection for minorities in their main countries of citizenship and the global Jewish support for would-be exclusivity in the ideal Jewish State of Israel.
“The Norwegian people have very little experience dealing with minorities so we have a job to do” according to Ervin Kohn the Jewish Community Leader in Oslo and a director of the Norwegian Center Against Racism.
Whilst it may be true that Norwegians were not protective of their Jews under Nazi occupation, the newest ‘problem’ of Norway being a country that is overwhelmingly ‘white skinned’ and ‘white natured’ will now be solved, so progressive solution seekers claim, by bringing in immigrants from Africa, especially the Middle East (much like Sweden which has now de-policed over fifty separate Moslem locations and Britain which has accepted local patches of Sharia Law) as opposed to the Asians and to a lesser extent the Hispanics who are more likely to work within the status quo to advance themselves individually than as a revolutionary group. Meantime the State of Israel (said to sterilize its African women and keep worried refugees from War Zones in military prisons whilst providing full civilian medical facilities for wounded ISIS terrorists) is predominantly controlled by Jews who outsiders would probably call white. Is Zionism and Globalism the same thing? If Israelis were held to be exceptional (the NSA already serves up garnered yet ungarnished data about everybody they can detect for consumption in Tel Aviv) and the rest of the planet were a foreplanned one-world governance with mass obedience and shrunken minds, then we might well guess as much.
The USA and Israel are the largest components of the Jewish world population today. Israel may have invested heavily in the absorption of new immigrants but about half of the Israelis who leave each year were not born there and a quarter are ex-immigrants who gained Jewish citizenship but were never accepted as being the beneficiaries of Jewish law. (‘Halakha’.) Emigration away from Israel averages out at around one thousand per day. Those regions receiving more than 2,000 Israeli migrants a year are the USA at 150,000 per annum, Europe at 70,000 p.a., Canada 25,000 p.a., Jordan 13,000 p.a., Australia 10,000 p.a. and 3,000 p.a.to Turkey.
And He hath judged between the nations, And hath given a decision to many peoples, And they have beat their swords to ploughshares, And their spears to pruning-hooks, Nation doth not lift up sword unto nation, Nor do they learn any more – war.
For soaked in the heavens was My sword, Lo, on Edom it cometh down, On the people of My curse for judgment.
Beat your ploughshares to swords, And your pruning-hooks to javelins
Thus said the Lord Jehovah to Edom, A report we have heard from Jehovah, And an ambassador among nations was sent, `Rise, yea, let us rise against her for battle.’
“Wars are the Jews’ harvest, for with them we wipe out the Christians and get control of their gold. We have already killed 100 million of them, and the end is not yet.”
France’s Chief Rabbi Reichorn in 1859
“We have been at the bottom of not merely the latest Great War, but of every other major revolution in your history.
We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone.”
Marclis Eli Ravage in the Century Magazine for February 1926, “the largest periodical in the country”
“The Roosevelt Administration has selected more Jews to fill influential positions than any previous administration.”
Brooklyn Jewish Examiner, October 20th 1933
“The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism.”
The Chicago Jewish Sentinel, October 8th 1942
ON MATTERS MASONIC AND CRYPTO-JESUIT
“Masonry is a Jewish institution whose history, degrees, charges, passwords, and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end.
Rabbi Isaac Wise in ‘The Israelite of America’
“We infiltrated the Roman Catholic Church right from the very beginning. Why do you think the Pope, the Cardinals and all the Bishops wear yarlmulkahs? The white race never figures this out. A thousand years later the white race began to wake up … we had to come up with a plan B … so we formed the Jesuits.”
‘Regarding the Jesuits’ by Rabbi Finkelstein
(It happens that graduates of almost 20 Jesuit institutions are now represented in U.S. Congress and Administration. Presently 53 out of 535 Members of Congress were Jesuit alumni, 35 having received first degrees from Jesuit universities. More than 30 such alumni serve in appointed positions in the Administration with 12 Jesuit alumni in the Senate and 41 in the House of Representatives. Jesuit-trained Republican Congressmen John Boehner was the first to be chosen to serve as the Speaker of the House of Representatives.)
“It is our duty to force all mankind to accept the seven Noahide laws” … and if not? … “they will be killed.”
Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg
The P.O.T.U.S. George Bush and both US Houses recognized retrospectively (by presuming that these laws have been the bedrock of every Society everywhere and for all time) that America had been founded upon the Seven Universal Laws of Noah when the 102nd Congress addressed the Public with USA Law 102-14 stating as much.
But that’s not all …
… every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattels and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (Birth Certificates) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit … After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud … Without realizing it, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. (Indentured Servitude) The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.”
Edward Mandell House detailing here a plan involving birth certificates, indentured servitude, social security and the presidency of the United States Corporation (founded 1871).
It has been said that if Israelis be the Masters of the World then the sole democracy in the Middle East is quite severely errant. Their arguably pivotal role in a series of international conflicts is clear enough to insiders, it seems. For example Kiev’s oligarchs-cum-administrators tend to hold Israeli passports. As does the Ukraine’s greatest and most internationally influential mobster. The Islamic State’s professional brutes are recuperating from their wounds in Tel Aviv of all places. Al Qaeda in all its other manifestations, such as Boko Harum, have had their communication abilities across the board considerably enhanced by some of their supposed enemies. And Israel has developed similarities to a martial dictatorship with its covert prisons and secret tribunals, say some.

“Religious symbols and forms of expression that Jews find threatening have been almost completely eliminated from schools and other public institutions.

“Congress Triples Obama’s Request on Defense Cooperation with Israel”
byline, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, December 12, 2013
This is better, we might suppose, than a division between ‘home and away’ American ideologies and the ceding of the latter to an autocratic emperor which would be consistent with the final age of dissolute Rome and its aggressive Imperial stance that left it ill-defended at home. Hold it there one moment … now I begin to think about it …
Barack Obama seems on one hand a product of the ideological shift technique (subversion hidden in full view) as was once invested-in heavily by the Soviets (now gone although Gorbachev maintains his office in the Kremlin we are told) to demoralize, destabilize, eventually place into a national crisis and finally normalize (sinister word, ‘normalize’!) domestic America.
On the other hand Obama seems an armchair-warrior golf-clubbing figurehead, or ‘drone’, for the extreme neoconservative left-right movement that stealthily and unhealthily conducts foreign policy by proxies. (Who was it that said a nation’s foreign policy should be an extension of its domestic policies?)
All the movements of the Twentieth Century – leftism, fascism, anti-childbirth, anti-family, pro-immorality, pro-egotism, pro-narcissism, pro-eugenecism – have led to this century’s anti-humanity mask as worn publicly by those who may well be first into the fires when the international elite reveal the grotesque true face of their grandly acquistive plan.
“When it comes to pushing the multicultural, anti-Christian agenda, you find Jewish judges, Jewish journalists, and the American Civil Liberties Union, at the forefront.”
“But the dirty little secret in America is that anti-Semitism is no longer a problem in society – it’s been replaced by a rampant anti-Christianity… It is the ACLU, which is overwhelmingly Jewish in terms of membership and funding, that is leading the attack against Christianity in America.
“I am getting the idea that too many Jews won’t be happy until they pull off their own version of the Spanish Inquisition, forcing Christians to either deny their faith and convert to agnosticism or suffer the consequences.”
Burt Prelutsky, Jewish columnist, USA
“Jews are the driving force of the modern pornographic industry, and their motivation is in part, to destroy gentile morals.”
Professor Nathan Abrams of Aberdeen University
“The Jewish contribution to the Left in the United States during the twentieth century ranks the highest of any immigrant or ethnic group … American Jewry has provided socialist organizations and movements with a disproportionate number – sometimes approaching or surpassing a majority – of their leaders, activists, and supporters.”
‘The Last Intellectuals: American Culture in the Age of Academe’ by Russell Jacoby, New York, 1986-7, Basic Books
The common denominator between Leftist groups in America including the Neoconservatives is that they were largely Jewish from the beginning and determined to turn the USA upside down and inside out
“in complete contrast… to the general cast of the American temperament as embodied by the Declaration of Independence.”
‘America Alone: The Neoconservatives and the Global Order’ by Stefan Halper and Jonathan Clarke, 2004, Cambridge University Press
“The “Left” and the “Right” certainly cannot talk about these issues in those terms because that would ruin their political hermeneutics. What history has taught is that whenever the “Left” or the “Right” is in charge, the West and America suffer.”
“… the new “Right” is another name for neoconservatism, which got its start in Stalinism and Leninism.”
‘After Neoconservatism’ by Francis Fukuyama, New York Times for February 19th 2006.
“Ordinary people feel that their supposedly democratic government no longer reflects their interests but instead caters to those of a variety of shadowy elites.”
Yoshiro Francis Fukuyama (brought up as an English-speaking American) studied under Allan Bloom who studied under Leo Strauss and Francis was once a Stanford Neoconservative. He argued that liberal democracy and free market capitalism (in cap-doffing theory if not in practice) marked the end of the road for the Western evolution of socio-cultural governance. Nowadays he talks about “the decay of American political institutions” saying that there is no guarantee that any institutional reform can be “without a major disruption of the political order” which is the dilemma facing many right-thinking persons in America and the West today (including the secret sevices who may have eliminated reformers wanting to acclimate people to the next step of this evolution perhaps by being unaware that it could lead to collapse into the abyss).
Zionism is an ideology of Blood & Soil and the ideology of even secular Zionism involves “Jewishness” even though there is no racially pure separate group of Jews.
The most powerful and numerous group, the Ashkenazi, are ethnically Eastern Europeans from Khazaria who converted in the Middle Ages. It is the Sephardic Jews, and Arab and Christian Palestinians, second class in Israel, who actually share the blood of the original Jews of the Bible. For this reason, even while many religious Jews reject Zionism, secular Zionism itself, needs religion for its raison d’etre, for there is NO real tie of blood to which they can otherwise appeal.
‘Understanding Jewish Influence’, Professor Kevin McDonald
Palestinian society was feudal and therefore socially cohesive and easily discerned between their twenty thousand citizen resident Jews and the new Jewish arrivals from 1820 onwards although they were perhaps over-welcoming to them as it transpires because the British government then viewed their apparently stable society as a suitable place for Jews to colonize.
Moses Hess, who was an associate of Karl Marx, wrote ‘Rome and Jerusalem The Last National Question’ calling for a Jewish Socialist State in Palestine as early as 1862.
Zionists seem to hold much sway over US politics with their infamous military-industrial complexifications and disastrous foreign policy based upon unlimited funds for war (see Watch Out World part 3 ) yet for the Zionists no maximization of support for their cause seems quite enough.
‘Aliyah’ is a Hebrew word for “ascent” and is a basic tenet of Zionism, i.e. removing to Jerusalem/Israel is both a physical and a spiritual advance. (‘Yerida’ or descent is the opposite event.) It may have come about from the Holy Land being surrounded by high places meaning historically one would have had to have ascended hills and mountains to get to there. In fact most ‘aliyah’ undertaken today is voluntary migration for economic or ideological or family reasons.
The development of the Zionist movement in the late Nineteenth Century coincided with the first large-scale immigration to Palestine in 1882. Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 several million Jews from over 90 countries have ‘made Aliyah’.
“Israel has never been anything but a Bantustan for Jews setup in the Middle East by the White racist and genocidal Western colonial imperial powers in order to serve as their racist attack dog and genocidal enforcer against the Arab and Muslim world. From the very moment of Western imperialism’s genocidal conception of Israel in 1947-1948, Israel has historically always functioned as Jewistan …”

“We Jews … will remain the destroyers forever. Nothing that you do will meet our needs and demands … because we need a world of our own, a God-World, which it is not in your nature to build.”

Opening on November 29th, the same date the UN voted to establish the State of Israel, a centre dedicated to Zionism’s founding father, Theodor Herzl, was to open in his home city of Budapest:
“Its founders hope it will help combat the rise in anti-Semitism in Europe.”
Haaretz online, May 2013
It has been said that after the creation of modern Israel the organized Zionist movement was fading just as the Israeli state was blooming (see The Oxford Companion to Politics of the World by Krieger & Crahan, 2001) but this does not ring very true in a political environment where fear of outside support is all that keeps Israel from being “blown into the sea” by massed Arabs (with the important exception of supple Saudi Arabia – both these states owing their continued existence to the secret services of the West with which their own services are intermingled and conjoined).
The most correct Arab title for the present Director of the US Central Intelligence Agency transliterates as “el Hajj John Brennan” which suggests his full acceptance into the Islam religion, at least by Saudi Wasabists.
It is said that Shia Moslems and Zionist Israeli Judaens seem to share teachings particular to the Baylonian religions such as they may kill, rob or cheat non-believers or not pay for their work or simply keep things back from them:
” … God will not spare a Jew who … returns a lost article to a Cuthean…”
WHY DID THE NEW ISRAELIS ABUSE PALESTINE’S INHABITANTS? WAS IT A PSYCHOLOGICAL REACTION WRIT LARGE?
“AMERICANS APPEAL FOR JEWISH REFUGE
Great Britain has it within her power to open the gates of Palestine and let in the victimized and persecuted Jews escaping from the European holocaust.”

This is ‘holocaust’ spelled with a small ‘h’, nevertheless its use before WWII in 1936 seems telling. I found it at this well-researched video “SIX MILLION JEWS 1915-1938” which unfortunately nestles among much more dubious titles:
Here’s a summary of the info provided, all being newspaper extracts:

PALESTINE TRANSFORMED: STATISTICS
Note: Stats in general and government stats in particular are often erroroneous, out of date or misleadingly removed out of context. I leave it to you to assess the measure of the following figures:
Over 90% of the state of Israel is under the Israel Lands
Administration/Jewish National Fund guidelines. Four
generations of maternal Jewish descent is required in order
to live on or work upon or lease these lands.
In 1917, there were 56,000 Jews in Palestine and 644,000 Palestinian Arabs. By 1931 there were 174,616 Jews and 750,000 Arabs. And by 1947 there were 630,000 Jews and 1,300,000 Palestinian Arabs making Jews 31% of the total population.
Until 1947, Jewish land ownership in Palestine was around 6%. The decision to partition Palestine, promoted by the world powers, allotted 54% of fertile land to the beneficiaries of the Zionist movement.
Before the state of Israel had established itself the Irgun and Haganah soldiers of Zion had seized three-quarters of the land and expelled inhabitants. By the time Israel was formally established 90% of the land had been sequestered. Between November 29, 1947, when the United Nations partitioned Palestine, and May 15, 1948, when the State was formally proclaimed, the army and Zionist militia had seized 75% of Palestine, forcing 780,000 Palestinians out of the country.
In 1948, only ninety out of nearly five hundred Palestinian villages and towns remained, stripped of their land, four hundred having been reduced to rubble.
See ‘The Transformation of Palestine ‘ edited by Ibrahim Abu Lughod. 1971, Northwestern University Press
Today we can say that more than 55% of the land and 70% of the water in the West Bank territory (occupied by Israel after the war of 1967) has been seized for the benefit of 6% of the population being some 40,000 Israeli settlers living among 800,000 Palestinian Arabs. In Gaza territory (likewise occupied from 1967) 2,200 settlers have been given over 40% of the land while a half million Palestinians are legally/illegally confined in the crowded camps and slums rather like a peculiarly large concentration camp.
It’s as if your own country of birth had been annexed legally but brutally and the remaindered population now exist or should we say subsist in only a couple of desparately crowded cities with the rest of what was your land now being out of your reach. This seems also to be the New World Order’s long-term plan for us all, by the way, as forewarned by the UN’s so-called Agenda 21 now under early implementation.
Israel’s separating barrier is a 400 km (and growing) network of concrete walls, high-tech fences and other obstacles. Many wonder why the controversial Green Line that is slicing through the West Bank has not followed the specified border between the Israeli and Palestinian holdings. Nonetheless, deadly suicide bombings inside Israel’s borders (289 Israeli and foreign bystanders were killed in the peak year of 2002) have nearly came to a halt.
IS ISRAEL A DEMOCRACY OR A THEOCRACY?
Yigal Amir a religious fanatic who assassinated Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 did his military service in the IDF combining army service in a religious platoon of the Golani Brigade with his university religious studies.
‘A Jewish and Democratic State’ is the legal definition of the nature and character of Israel. There is also the Declaration of Independence 1948. This defines the nature of Israel as Jewish. These were amended by the ‘Basic Law: the Knesset’ of 1985 which formulated its democratic character. These terms may seem complimentary to some but to others they contain contradctions. For instance, If Israel is religious why is it not peaceful? The answer seems to be because it is so worldly and the worldly ones are claiming this aggression to be of otherworldly necessity:
“The state of Israel must invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the methods of provocation and revenge… And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.”
From the diary of Moshe Sharett Israel’s very first Foreign Minister and Prime Minister from 1954-6
RELIGIOUS HISTORY? IT’S A MESS!
As to sons of Reuben, first-born of Israel – for he be the first-born, and on account of his profaning the couch of his father hath his birthright been given to the sons of Joseph son of Israel, and he is not to be reckoned by genealogy for the birthright, for Judah hath been mighty over his brother, and for leader above him, and the birthright be to Joseph.
1 Chronicles 5:1-2
Traditional Jewish Anarchists vs. Jewish State Worshippers
Many Jews are liberal, radical or anti-imperial exposers of state crimes with a wired-in need to criticize oppression of ethnic groups and all forceful occupations – except when tribal loyalty requires them to defend Israel. Tribal? Lack of Israel policy dissent is stronger among the Jewish diaspora than it is among the Israeli population. Perhaps that’s one reason why the US has blocked other nations from seeking a peaceful settlement of the Palestine Problem for 40 years. They did suggest a ‘road map’ during Dubya’s time as President which Israel accepted immediately subject to more than a dozen caveats which exactly cancelled it out.
Israel is survival-sensitive to the extent that they act as if just one undeniable defeat would be fatal to the State. The inevitable corollary is that all those hostile to them should die first.
In the following Youtube video of a BBC live TV interview, after the first plane struck on 9/11/2001 and the whole TV-watching world was deep in shock, the former Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak provides a non-sequitur listing of ‘rogue’ countries which need must be struck down by the USA in his version of a logical and universal response to what we all now refer to as ‘9/11’.
Having strongly implied Afghanistan he goes on to name “the five of them” as Iran, Iraq, Libya and North Korea as if from a disarrahged script. (North Korea seems somewhat unecessary for Israel to have demanded, unless the common link is actually the absence of connection to the Rothschildian Central Banking System. President Dubya’s reiteration of this in his ‘empire of evil’ speech may yet prove to be his most inflammatory assertion of all).
The US-led invasion of Iraq introduced or enflamed sectarian conflicts, most probably intentionally, which were to tear Iraq apart and then spread to Syria, bordering Israel, which was previously one of the world’s most balanced multi-layered societies.

THE OLD TESTAMENT/HEBREW BIBLE
My understanding of Christian theology, such as it is, hinges on instruction by George Reindorp, later the first Bishop of Guildford, who taught us at Burdett-Coutts, the School to which his church attached, that the New Testament overtook the Old. This may have been a personal point of view as many Christians seem to take up more of the old than the new these days:
THE CHOSEN PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE
2 Samuel 7:23-24
1 Kings 8:53
1 Kings 10:9
1 Chronicles 17:20-21
THE NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIAN BIBLE
There’s also Paul Romans 11:1-2
I say, then, Did God cast away His people? let it not be! for I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin: God did not cast away His people whom He knew before;
and Paul, Hebrews 8:
8:8 For finding fault, He saith to them, `Lo, days come, saith the Lord, and I will complete with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah, a new covenant,
8:9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers, in the day of My taking by their hand, to bring them out of the land of Egypt – because they did not remain in My covenant, and I did not regard them, saith the Lord, –
8:10 because this be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, saith the Lord, giving My laws into their mind, and upon their hearts I will write them, and I will be to them for a God, and they shall be to Me for a people
IS ZIONISM IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF ALL OR MOST JEWS?
The World Zionist Organization Congress of 1933 defeated the resolution on action against Hitlerism by a vote of 240 to 43. Meanwhile, Hitler announced a trade agreement with the Anglo-Palestine Bank breaching the Jewish boycott of the Nazi regime at the height of the Depression so that they became the main distributor of Nazi Germany’s goods throughout the Middle East and Northern Europe. The Ha’avara bank in Palestine was to receive monies from the German Jewish bourgeoisie and use it to purchase large quantities of Nazi goods.
At one time the Zionist movement covertly encouraged a bad attitude by Jews towards their own selves, sadly, as that guilt might help drive Jewish migration to Israel. It also stirred up trouble in the world, only so as to hasten Jewish emigration it would seem. After 1947, Isreal Jewish Zionism grew expansive:
“A partial Jewish State is not the end, but only the beginning. I am certain that we can not be prevented from settling in the other parts of the country and the region.”
David Ben Gurion in a private letter made public
Does God really favour one nation over another? One state? Is the modern open nation-state really inferior to the racism of the Kibbutz?
“For a certainty I perceive that God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him. “
(God’s commandments to the Jews) “transcend the human notions of national rights.”
Rabbi Shlomo Aviner
Jesus saith to them, `Did ye never read in the Writings, A stone that the builders disallowed, it became head of a corner; from the Lord hath this come to pass, and it is wonderful in our eyes. `Because of this I say to you, that the reign of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth its fruit; and he who is falling on this stone shall be broken, and on whomsoever it may fall it will crush him to pieces.’ And the chief priests and the Pharisees having heard his similes, knew that of them he speaketh, and seeking to lay hold on him, they feared the multitudes, seeing they were holding him as a prophet.
Gospel of Matthew 37-45
“Providence recognizes equally Jews, Greeks and Barbarians – in a word, all races and peoples, who ought to be perceived as one though without losing their individual identity.”
Rabbi Elijah Bemamozegh
And it hath come to pass, Every one who calleth in the name of Jehovah is delivered, For in mount Zion and in Jerusalem there is an escape, As Jehovah hath said, And among the remnants whom Jehovah is calling!
Our nationality is the religion of our fathers, and we recognise no other nationality. We are living in foreign lands, and cannot trouble about the mutable ambitions of the countries entirely alien to us while our own moral and material problems are in danger. The Jewish teaching must cover the whole Earth no matter where fate should lead, you must always consider yourselves of a Chosen Race
Adolph Cremieux, founder of ‘Alliance Israelite Universelle’, in their Manifesto of 1869
Narcissistic UK politician Alan Clark reportedly said to journalist Frank Johnson on the subject of the Nazis that,
“… I was completely committed to the whole philosophy. The blood and violence was an essential ingredient of its strength, the heroic tradition of cruelty every bit as powerful and a thousand times more ancient than the Judaeo-Christian ethic.”
The Judaeo-Christian ethical tradition at its best becomes truly distinct and potentially would be immensely valuable, and yet
“The thought of creating the Jewish people preceded every other thought of the Almighty when creating the Universe.”

AN AFTERTHOUGHT ON THE WEIGHTY-WEIGHTLESS SUBJECT OF GOD
Has anybody ever heard God speak or is He so intelligent that our language is inadequate for Him to make His pronunciations accurately?
Can we catch Him with Love?
Is God all that there is in Reality, i.e. The Truth?
As such is He of a necessity outside of any deceitful human construct, any unreal fields of lies imagined threats and mistaken deceptions, and so cannot protect us even as we are knowingly or unknowingly wrapped inside such trickery?
Are we equipped insufficiently to understand more than a smidgeon of the mind of God, if anything at all?
They speak of some people’s words as being timeless don’t they? But in a sense the Judeo-Christian-Muslim faiths are bound to accept a final End Time because ‘the way that can be put into words cannot be the everlasting way’.
Tellingly, the prophecied End Time is not the End of Everything but only of The World As We Know It. In short, the end of the faith of the prophets will come and then the world shall appear anew. The promise that those who believe in a single faith (but practical Asian household members can follow several beliefs simultaneously) will somehow survive, somewhat changed into a transformed location, is surely true for every person in the world – faithful or heretic, apostate or faithless – or else for no-one at all? That new location may well be right here, by the way, for where else in the deathly Universe could it be?
Abraham was an astrologer. He believed that signs of the times could be predetermined from the predictable movements of the stars against the flat screen of the night sky.
Many years ago I wrote that PC monitors were clearly descended from movie theatre screens via the home TV screen and wondered what screen would come into popularity next. True to the trend of diminution we then had mobile telephone and now wristwatch screens (bouncing back as tablets as the trend reverses).
The picture of the world that we hold in our heads is apparently on a rectangular screen of sorts, or so it seems to me. It is this that we look in upon. We do NOT physically look out at the world through our eyes as if they were windows, just the opposite.
Human life appears dependent upon how we each perceive it to be and the words by which we commonize each experience. The insistence that those who do not believe in a particular faith, creed or social system will suffer painful extinction is risible when seen as cheap politicking by a band who at the centre are keen to convert everybody’s money into their greed-driven capital gain and will employ sincere yet hoodwinked dupes at the periphery to interpose with the public at purse and wallet level.
Inspired mostly by the psychological effects of role-fulfillment these may even preach fire and brimstone but will often recant at a price. It’s as if their group alone could hold out the key to heaven (or hell) before us; much like a carrot held in front and a big stick waved behind some errant donkey.
Undoubtedly birth and death resemble each other to a marked degree. At what stage consciousness comes into the foetus is largely unknown, immeasurable. At what stage the spirit of a person joins to their body may be a different issue or it may be quite the same. We do know that babies kick, punch, somersault, hear, hiccup, swallow, feel and see long before birth. They are perhaps aware of a barrier around them and something discernably other beyond but we cannot tell how much information this gives them or whether they have any prior ability to receive information, either to store it or to act upon it (though all the indicators point that way to me).
Psychologists once held that the trauma of birth defined a life, i.e. imbued it with attitude. I still believe that. It is easy to believe that optimism over personal ability, the benefits of personal effort whilst ‘going with the flow’ and an acceptability of or by the external world enduringly attends the new-born infant after making a successful first journey into enjoyable surroundings. A heavenly result.
Contradistinctly, the babe who has suffered too much and become strangulated on the cord until blue for lack of oxygen and is surrounded by distracted anxious professionals even ready to snatch him away and handle him harshly to make him breathe in return for his efforts is likely to retain the wish he had not emerged to here and could reject any further wish for progress, feeling imprisoned in some densely populated hell.
Death is a journey but to where we cannot know; perhaps to extinction, perhaps not. I deduce, rather than know, that reincarnation is a loaded term for an obvious truth and if some great change such as End Time is indeed due then it might arguably be whenever all those who have ever lived are alive again simultaneously, which seems a while off from our still small numbers today. (Don’t believe the anti-humanity propagandizers with their overstated and impossible to prove or disprove statistics; it’s been said that everybody alive in the world today could have a piece of land to live on in a state the size of Texas.)
Is it impossible to know anything of life before birth or of death before dying? If some things seem impossible, well why? Where do the standard perceptions of life and reality and possibility emanate from? How did the ancients leave behind them monuments impossible to reconstruct accurately today with or without the most modern technology and high-tech resources?
Where did the Universe come from? What is it coming to? Science holds that a one-off phenomena is of no scientific importance, refuses any scientific investigation of what cannot be repeated such as a haunting premonition or a god-given prophecy, goes on to suggest that nothing unworthy of science’s attention is actually real and then springs on us that absolutely everything in the Universe of Universes started with an unrepeated ‘Initial Singularity’ which science analyzes and defines by jubilant circular thinking.
Where did a bouncing babe first come from? Of course, a sperm and an egg is the mammalian device. Crystals and amoeba replicate themselves without this fuss. There seems no magic attached to reproduction generally. And yet the process can become quite stunning to consider as the emerging human foetus is a person constructing themselves. We discern that the placenta belongs not to the mother but to the child, that the mother provides the receptacle for self-development and her personal resources are then drained-off mercilessly by the placenta acting purely for the benefit of the baby that constructed it.
Yet how can a non-person paint a picture of themselves using neither hands nor eyes? How can they sketch outlines even without a tool or an appropriate medium? How can they structure themselves into how they will look in the unknowable future? How can a sculptor chisel himself into a future state out of nothing without any chisel or even a hand? How could a limbless potter use up to three trillion lumps of varying degrees of material with sophistication and purpose? Yes our construction engineers today can throw up a giant skyscraper or the International SpaceStation, thereby overshadowing the human scale of things, but how is that done? By using a plan of plans, attacking consummate difficulties and employing strictly flexible managerial controls plus background field experience. Yet even the greatest building consortiums cannot be sure of erecting their lifeless heaps on time.
How can we imbue life, awareness, ultra-sophistication, humour beyond any computer programme plus a developing sense of purpose and all to a synchronized schedule? Impossible? No, you’ve done it! You built yourself!
We should not then trick our minds into thinking about blueprints and simple construction sites and faultless chemical messaging – we would only be imagining things. Three trillion interactive cells of amazing diversity constructed over nine or less months is an impossible task for any human or inhuman crew let alone a single baby making itself. Modern science dogmatically denies that any purpose, foresight or intention could ever exist in nature (any end event that is initially presumed is dismissed as ‘teleology’) but that is clearly how we make ourselves. The ultra-influential Prophet Mohammed, the ultra-remarkable Nikola Tesla – who snatched the unprecedented idea for radio communication from out of thin air – and Leonardo the ultra-creative Renaissance Man all simply made themselves. So did Edward Leedskalnin the improbable creator of the impossible Coral Castle who given a good workforce might have completed another pyramid like Giza. And so did you and I.
Evolution or revolution? No wonder people cling to the old saw that God makes us by wilfully handing out an endless diversity of features and characteristics; for no two people are the same person, not even identical twins which are indeed a mutual clone or the same person twice according to our temporarily logical and materialistic gene theories.
If we do not know this much about our self, how can we say that we know the mind of God or even whether God has a mind at all? How can we say He made a choice? What part of Him did He make that decision with? Why should He make choices at all, let alone some blood-sluicing ones, if He stands outside of Time where necessarily all things must be happening at once? God is Global and Universal, no? Why should Western history be riddled with exclusive and determined religions and religious leaders or any leaders at all and what has that to do with the powerful God of Love and Truth?
