JEWISH FUNDAMENTALISM: Israel’s war effort gains religious imperative

During the Gaza war this year, Schmuel Kaufman, a military rabbi from a West Bank settlement, used to stride between the Israeli soldiers’ tents and urge them to fight what he deemed an “obligatory war” ordained by ancient scripture.

[Although it doesn’t specify in the article, it’s safe to assume that the ‘ancient scripture’ referred to here are the pharisaic ‘teachings of the elders’ and not the Torah of the Old Testament, which contains the Law of Moses — 800]

“It’s a holy war to protect women and children from the south of the country after a long period of endurance on our side,” he told The Times. “The commander of the battalion asked me to blow the shofar [a ram’s horn] every time before going into the fighting. I’m blowing the shofar while 500 soldiers stand behind me praying. They went in wrapped in holiness.”

Rabbi Kaufman and many other religious soldiers attributed Israel’s very low casualty rate in the month-long conflict to the newfound religiosity of its Armed Forces. In recent years, the army has become more devout, with an increasing number of recruits from religious and nationalist groups, including settlers.

Even secular professional soldiers, who long formed the backbone of the Israeli Army, admire the motivation and zeal of their nationalist-religious comrades, and say that they were some of the most effective fighters in Gaza [I presume the writer means the most effective ‘killers,’ seeing as recent events in Gaza amounted to a massacre, or holocaust, rather than a war — 800] .

But anti-settlement groups, such as Peace Now [i.e., controlled opposition], warn that the national-religious movement has now become so strong in the military that no future government will dare to use the army in evacuating the increasing number of settler outposts that have sprung up across the West Bank, which they say explains the reluctance of the Ehud Barak, the Labor Defense Minister, to take such a politically explosive task.

One religious paratrooper who fought in Gaza and who asked to be identified only as Ilan, said that leaders of religious and settler communities encouraged their young people to join the army and to work their way up the ranks. The new recruits attend special pre-military seminaries, known as hesder yeshivas, to prepare them for army service. Most of these are in the occupied West Bank, which Israelis call Judea and Samaria.

Elyakim Haetzni, a founder of the large Kiryat Arba settlement in Hebron, said that the growing influence of the religious Right in the army was not a deliberate policy but a natural phenomenon, as the country becomes increasingly nationalist. Traditionally, elite combat units were drawn from members of the kibbutzim, the collective farms that formed the nucleus of the state of Israel at its birth in 1948 and which continued to hold sway until the 1980s.

The decline of kibbutz-based socialism in Israel coincided with the rise of religious nationalism after the 1967 Six Day War and the capture of Jerusalem — a sign to many religious Jews and their millions of Christian Evangelist supporters in America of divine intervention and the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Gone are the days when religious Israelis confined themselves to scriptural studies and the spiritual safeguarding of the homeland. Now they sign up and fight.

When Rabbi Kaufman left the Israeli Air Force in 1966 there were only half a dozen religious soldiers in his unit. Today, there are 150. During the Gaza war, he said, prayer shawls were in high demand, even among otherwise secular troops.

“Today religious soldiers make about 40 to 50 per cent of the soldiers in the army. Many of them hold high ranks. This is thanks to the approach set forward by Rabbi [Avraham] Kook, the spiritual father of the national religious camp,” he said, referring to the early-20th-century religious leader who fused Zionist nationalism with religious teachings. His philosophy has had a profound effect on the religious settlers now building unauthorized outposts across the West Bank.

“Following Rabbi Kook’s approach, hesder yeshivas and the pre-military colleges encouraged their students to go to combat units in the army, and aspire for high rankings,” he said.

In 2007, the army jailed 12 religious soldiers who refused to participate in the eviction of Jewish settlers who were illegally occupying buildings in the mainly Palestinian city of Hebron. General Gadi Shamni, head of the central army command at the time, said: “This is a dangerous phenomenon that threatens the very basis of the army being the people’s army in a democratic state.” [It should be clear by now that Israel is anything but a ‘democratic state’ — 800]

During the recent Gaza war, the army reprimanded some military rabbis for inciting soldiers to draw comparisons between the Palestinians and the Philistines, a long-defunct biblical civilization that fought the ancient Israelites and from which the modern name of Palestine descends.

Although the army spokesman’s office denies any increasing influence of the national-religious, the military has already had to deal with stinging blows to its ability to operate in the occupied territories. In 2008, the army jailed 12 religious soldiers who refused to participate in the eviction of Jewish settlers illegally occupying buildings in the mainly Palestinian city of Hebron.

Mr Haetzni, the veteran settler leader in Hebron, said that any attempt to remove hundreds of thousands of Jewish settlers now living in the West Bank would result in a civil war. “General Jim Jones [the US national security advisor formerly in charge of training Palestinian security forces] will have to send in NATO forces, the American Marines,” he said.

The Satanic/Talmudic Origins of Star Trek

Posted in Hollywoodism with tags , , , , , , on May 29, 2009 by The 800 Pound Gorilla

STXI_Jlogo2_s Almost every Trekkie out there views the Star Trek phenomenon as a fantasy of the New age of secular humanism (Enlightened Human Society), but to the adepts and initiates it is a Talmudic doctrine of Satan.the various alien races are various earthly cultures and Vulcans are the the Jews, due to their “wisdom”and The Borg I think are the devilish depiction of Islam and/or “the people of the book”. Think about it, they assimilate cultures by force “Holy Wars” and make them into a collective or “Umah” or nation of Faith (this is the Talmudic depiction of Islam as well). The assimilated is no longer human or partaking in sinful pleasure, but rather abstains from sin. This demonizes the notion of the unity of one nation under God “Umah” and glorifies disunity under the guise of diversity, man’s achievements in place of God’s Creation, and finally promotion of impulsive primal animal-like behavior under the guise of unlocking your potential, developing your superpower, or evolving.

“Nimoy drew upon his own Jewish background to suggest the now-familiar salute. Back in the 1960s, hippies who watched “Amok Time” thought the salute was a variation of the two-fingered peace sign. But we Jews knew better. The Vulcan salute came not from protest marches, but from the pulpit of Nimoy’s childhood synagogue.

The Vulcan greeting is based upon a blessing gesture used by the kohanim (koe-hah-NEEM) during the worship service. The kohanim are the genealogical descendants of the Jewish priests who served in the Jerusalem Temple. Modern Jews no longer have priests leading services as in ancient times, nor do we have animal sacrifices anymore. (Yes, people really do ask about that!) The sacrificial system ended with the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in the year 70. C.E. However, a remnant of the Temple service lives on in the “kohane blessing” ritual (duchenen in Yiddish) that is performed on certain holy days. ” excerpt from The Jewish Origin of the Vulcan Salute by Rabbi Yonassan Gershom trekjews.com

Religion seems to be largely absent from the futuristic and secular world of the Federation and in particular from human society. Star Trek’s takes on religious topics are often critical, and they almost routinely close with a victory of science over faith. This is anything but a surprise, knowing that Gene Roddenberry was an active atheist who struggled against any form of religion:

“I condemn false prophets, I condemn the effort to take away the power of rational decision, to drain people of their free will — and a hell of a lot of money in the bargain. Religions vary in their degree of idiocy, but I reject them all. For most people, religion is nothing more than a substitute for a malfunctioning brain.” (Gene Roddenberry)

In a Q&A session executive producer Brannon Braga was asked whether there was supposed to be a deity in the stories that he wrote. He said:

“No, there was no consideration in giving humans, talking about God, or talking about those types of things. We wanted to avoid it to be quite frank. But we did very often explore theology through alien characters. Which frankly is much more interesting anyway. Whether it was the Bajorans and their religion or the Borg and their religion. They had the religion of perfection. That, I think, was more interesting. We want to keep Star Trek secular. The human facet of Star Trek secular.” (Brannon Braga, transcript from his former website)” excerpt from: Religion in Star Trek

If daily life is not concerned with familiar economic activities and the whole of life is not informed with religious purposes, then what is life all about in Star Trek? Well, the story is about a military establishment, Star Fleet, and one ship in particular in the fleet, the Enterprise. One might not expect this to provide much of a picture of ordinary civilian life; and it doesn’t. One never sees much on Earth apart from the Star Fleet Academy and Picard’s family farm in France — unless of course we include Earth’s past, where the Enterprise spends much more time than on the contemporaneous Earth. Since economic life as we know it is presumed not to exist in the future, it would certainly pose a challenge to try and represent how life is conducted and how, for instance, artifacts like the Enterprise get ordered, financed, and constructed. And if it is to be represented that things like “finance” don’t exist, one wonders if any of the Trek writers or producers know little details about Earth history like when Lenin wanted to get along without money and accounting and discovered that Russia’s economy was collapsing on him. Marx’s prescription for an economy without the cash nexus was quickly abandoned and never revived. Nevertheless, Marx’s dream and Lenin’s disastrous experiment is presented as the noble and glorious future in Star Trek: First Contact, where Jean Luc Picard actually says, “Money doesn’t exist in the Twenty-Fourth Century.”

So what one is left with in Star Trek is military life. Trying to soften this by including families and recreation on the Enterprise in fact makes the impression worse, since to the extent that such a life is ordinary and permanent for its members, it is all the easier to imagine that all life in the Federation is of this sort. Not just a military, but a militarism. In the show, this actually didn’t work out very well. In the beginning, Star Trek: The Next Generation wanted to remind us of the daily life, children in school, etc. on board; and more than once the “battle hull” of the ship was separated from the “saucer” so that the civilian component of the crew would be safe from hostile action. This cumbersome expedient, however, was soon enough forgotten; and we later forget, as the Enterprise finds itself in desperate exchanges with hostile forces, that small children are undergoing the same battle damage that we see inflicted on the bridge — unless of course it is brought to our attention because there is a story with a special focus on a child, as with Lieutenant Worf’s son. In Star Trek: First Contact, crew members are being captured and turned into Borg. Does that include the children? We never see any. Do Picard’s orders to shoot any Borg include Borg who were human children? This disturbing situation is completely ignored by the movie. Star Trek, therefore, cannot maintain its fiction that military life on a major warship will be friendly to families and children. excerpt from The Fascist Ideology of Star Trek: Militarism, Collectivism, & Atheism

May 19, 2009

As seems de rigeur for this sort of post, let me prove my Star Trek bona fides (or lack thereof) before going forward. I was a child of Star Trek: The Next Generation, only three years old when it premiered, but ten when it concluded and old enough to remember the season finale broadcast. I later caught up on every episode of that series. I have also seen more than a handful of the original series, and about two to three dozen episodes of Deep Space 9. So I’m not trekkie, as it goes. But I’m familiar with the shows, and if my knowledge is not encyclopedic, it is viable. I may not be able to recall the exact science-fiction hook used in season 4, episode seven offhand, but if you hum a few bars, I think I could sing along.

Once said, let’s put that to rest. If my credentials aren’t enough to discuss the new film with any depth, please skip ahead. I won’t be offended. I understand fandom, and if someone wanted to write about the X-Men without an encyclopedic background, I’d thank them kindly to their face and say bad things about them behind their backs. So go ahead. Say bad things.

What struck me about the film was the role of the Jew, or the lack thereof. The Original Series always had Leonard Nimoy as Spock. He was not simply the intellectual rationalist to Kirk’s fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants adventurer, as a number of critics have suggested. What is clear from those earliest episodes is that Spock was an equal partner in the great adventure. He may have brought a cooler head from time to time, but the mission was equally his. As such, he was something of a philosopher-warrior, a Jewish archetype rare in contemporary society, but rich in our history; from the Biblical Joshua, King David, to Franz Rosenzweig writing The Star of Redemption “in the Macedonian trenches,” or maybe David Ben-Gurion.

The Next Generation took the Jew in Star Trek one step further. Despite not having as public a Jewish identity as Nimoy in a main role, one could say TNG was even more Jewish than the Original Series. Watch them argue about the Prime Directive, debate subtleties of ethical and intellectual dilemmas, or entirely forgo physical confrontation in favor of multiculturalism and empathy. Hell, the crew was so neurotic, they kept a full-time therapist on the ship. The greatest triumphs were not the defeat of an adversary, but the breaching of borders, the comprehension of foreign language. Watch “Darmok,” in my most humble opinion the greatest episode of The Next Generation. It is moving beyond words.

I mean, they might as well have called it Star Trek: The Great Jew Extravaganza. The central themes of the Star Trek shows – exploring new worlds, making contact with new civilizations, doing mitzvoth and good deeds throughout the universe – are central tenets of Judaism. Would a Michael Lerner luncheon have been out of place on The Next Generation? Picard was already, always doing birur nitzutzot (elevating the sparks of the universe) and performing tikkun on the galaxies.

I have no doubt the Jew in Star Trek has been explored and interrogated at greater lengths than I could do justice to. Certainly, if there were no Jews in Star Trek, there was still plenty of locations for a Jew to find himself in the show. And yet, now, we have J.J. Abram’s new Star Trek and, despite enjoying the spectacle, I find myself wondering: Where has the Jew gone? At first, the obvious issues; there is no exploration, no new worlds to discover. If anything, there’s the collapse of old worlds – the destruction of Vulcan. There’s a political agenda; sometimes terrorists can’t be negotiated with (Spoiler alert: Eric Bana’s villain chooses to die rather than accept Kirk’s compassion).

Spock is no longer played by a Jew, but by Zachary Quinto (whom I know as the villain Sylar on Heroes). That itself is not a problem, but coupled with the character’s transformation makes him into a non-Jewish figure. He is now quick to rush to anger and violence, not to fight based on logic but based on emotional betrayal. He is vindictive against Kirk, and he now embarks on a fairly public love affair with Uhura. In other words, he is an arrogant bore, and he lacks wisdom, possessing only intellect.

This move is made all the more evident by the inclusion of the old Spock, Leonard Nimoy, in the film. Nimoy is everything that Quinto’s Spock is not. He is thoughtful, caring, and wise. When he calls the young Kirk his longtime friend, the scene is poignant and moving. Tellingly, the character is a man literally caught out of time – a refugee from a future time – much as the ethos he once represented are too caught out of time. This new Star Trek has no place for deliberation over ethics, or warm human contact. Compare Nimoy’s brief moments with Kirk to Quinto’s moments. One is deeply connected to the human. The other, no matter how many times the film may argue otherwise, is deeply alienated from the human experience. No, this Spock is no Jew. He truly is alien.

This would bother me far less if the movie didn’t hold the promise of future installments. The film is doing well in release and I have no doubt a sequel is already in the works. But can they possibly use Nimoy again? It seems unlikely – his role here was as intermediary, ferrying the series from the Roddenberry vision to the Abrams’ vision. I imagine he’ll be gone in the next film and then we’ll be left with no Jew at all, just a bunch of very entertaining goyim canvassing the universe. Maybe they’ll decide to explore strange new worlds, but I doubt it. Abram’s likes his monsters. There’ll be a new villain, a new world-ending catastrophe, another distended-anus snow creature. There isn’t a lot of time for tikkun ha’olem when you’re reacting against terrorists and psychopaths. Or rather, there should be time made, but who will make it? Our only hope, I fear, is that Chris Pine’s Kirk grows into the role Spock once held. He does seem to have sensitivity and a thoughtfulness hiding just behind his impetuousness and impulsiveness. Maybe he’ll cultivate it.

The narrative itself addressed this. Nimoy-Spock tells Quinto-Spock in one of the final moments that he’ll hide out of sight, working on the preservation of Vulcan cultural heritage. And that, finally, is what the Jew of Star Trek has been reduced to: A cultural heritage, a memory of a series long past. Now, we look to the future. Too bad J.J. Abrams is such a goy.

Like many other aspects of the Star Trek world, these dicta are simple “there” – given an explanation only when the story calls for it. Roddenberry used his shows as a type of very passive or yinful propaganda: he merely SHOWED what could be, what humans COULD become if they developed certain potentials.

Likewise, the fact that in the 1960’s the original Trek series had a crew including people of many nations and races, and both genders – and, to top it off, an alien Second in Command, Mr. Spock! Yet this was not explained, it was simply presented. Another beautiful Roddenberrian idea is the Vulcan motto of “Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.”

One way of seeing this is that there is a TREND in society. Some people are “hung up” on what could be called personal issues, or behaviors borne of inner conflict like bottled-up rage, broken self-hood, warped sexuality or emotionality, or similar developmental problems. These people seem to “go nowhere” – they don’t Become, because they are “stuck on themselves.” Everything they do is a reflection of their warped selves and inability to grow or develop – their lives play like broken records in what seem to be abortive attempts to repair or correct psychological problems. Satanically speaking, people like this are pent-up/apathetic, and ophionic – two stages of the same problem. They are unable to Become – they only stagnate and Unbecome (self-destruct). Societies where these people predominate do likewise: stagnate and unbecome. They are all increasingly stress-filled, illogical, and inhumane.

And there is another trend in society – this could be called the Progressive movement, or Enlightenment movement. Note the Satanic connotations of these words: Progressive, as in Becoming – and Enlightened, as in The Light or Black Flame. These people tend to focus on very practical problems outside the self: better education for people, improving quality of life, better food, less work, less stress, less crime, etc. Focus is on phenomena – the outer – the world! As in, exploring the galaxy! Enjoying the world, and improving the world for more enjoyment and less pain. The self is not an issue with people like this – and in a sense people like this are “alooof” because they are inwardly content. This latter trend, politically, tends to make societies that are more equitable, less stressful, more humane.

Star Trek is merely a continuation of this latter trend – without the “garbage” associated with the first, negative trend.

Who were the “people of the book”?

Posted in Media Watch with tags , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2009 by The 800 Pound Gorilla

Pakistan Daily
May 27, 2009“And there are, certainly, people among the Yahud and Nasara, those who believes in Allah and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before Allah. They don’t sell the Verses of Allah for a little price, for them is a reward with their Lord. Surely, Allah is Swift in account,” – Holy Qur’an 3:199

The Arabic words, ‘Yahud’ and ‘Nasara’ were translated into ‘Jews’ and ‘Christians’ by the first English translator of Holy Qur’an, Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall, the British convert, based on his religious and cultural background. His translation the words had no religious or historical basis. ‘Yahud’ in Islamic Arabic term means those people (Banu Israel), who follow the “Laws of Moses (Torah)” – which the great majority of Jews don’t. Instead they follow Talmud, a book written by Rabbis during the 2nd century CE. Similarly, ‘Nasara’ in Islamic Arabic terms those people (Nazarene) who follow the Scripture (Injil) revealed to prophet Isa (Jesus) – while all Christians follow the teachings of St. Paul and four Gospel writers, who never met Jesus (as).

Bible confirms my theory (Revelation 2:9 – “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a Synagogue of Satan.”

[Thanks to DBS at The French Connection for this one]

Arthur Koestler ( an Ashkenazi Jew himself) in his famous book The Thirteenth Tribe has also proven that the western Jews (Ashkenazi Jews occupying Palestine) are not the Israelites, but Turkic people who converted to Judaism during CE 740s.

Jesus’ few dozen Apostles (disciples), who belonged to Israelite’s Essenes order and spoke in Aramaic or Hebrew – used to call themselves ‘Nazarenes (Nasara)’, who after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE, made their headquarters in Alexanderia (Egypt). These people followed the teachings of the Gospel of St. Barnabas, until Roman King Constantine destroyed them, together with their cononical Gospel (an Italian translation of which could be seen in theViennese Museum in Austria). St. Barnabas is described in Acts 11:24, “for he was a good man, full of the Holy Ghost and faith.” It was Pope Gelasius, who issued a Bull (492 CE) – giving orders to destroy all copies of Gospel of Barnabas, which had survived the ravages of Constantine, and to replace it by the corrupted copies of the Constantine Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John of 325 CE.

Now, an Israeli historian, professor Shlomo Sand (Tel Aviv University), has claimed in his book titled “Matai ve’ech humtza ha’am hayehudi?” (”When and How the Jewish People Was Invented?”; that the present-day Jews are not descendents of the Hebrew tribes of Israel, exiled from the kingdoms of Judia or Israel by the Babylonians – but ancient pagans, mainly Berbers from North Africa, Arabs from south of Arabia and Turks from Khazar empire in Asia – who converted to Judaism between the fourth and eighth century CE. According to professor Sand, the Palestinians are probably the descended from Hebrews who embraced Islam or Christianity.

Israeli-born writer and musician, Gilad Atzmon, in his article The Wandering Who? elaborate further the myth of Jewishness as the community of the “People of Book” – “Astonishingly enough, in spite of the fact that Sand manages to dismantle the notion of ‘Jewish people’, crush the notion of ‘Jewish collective past’ and ridicule the Jewish chauvinist national impetus, his book is a best seller in Israel. This fact alone may suggest that those who call themselves ‘people of the book’ are now starting to learn about the misleading and devastating philosophies and ideologies that made them into what Khalid Amayreh and many others regard as the “Nazis of our time”.

It is an established fact that not a single Jewish history text had been written between the 1st century and early 19th century. The fact that Judaism is based on a religious historical myth may have something to do with it. An adequate scrutiny of the Jewish past was never a primary concern within the Rabbinical tradition. One of the reasons is probably the lack of a need of such a methodical effort. For the Jew who lived during ancient times and the Middle Ages, there was enough in the Bible to answer most relevant questions having to do with day-to-day life, Jewish meaning and fate. As Shlomo Sand puts it, “a secular chronological time was foreign to the ‘Diaspora time’ that was shaped by the anticipation for the coming of the Messiah”.

Though most contemporary Jews are utterly convinced that their ancestors are the Biblical Israelites who happened to be exiled brutally by the Romans, truth must be said. Contemporary Jews have nothing to do with ancient Israelites, who have never been sent to exile because such an expulsion has never taken place. The Roman Exile is just another Jewish myth.

However, far more interesting is the logical outcome: If the people of Israel were not expelled, then the real descendants of the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Judah must be the Palestinians.

“No population remains pure over a period of thousands of years” says Sand. [12] “But the chances that the Palestinians are descendants of the ancient Judaic people are much greater than the chances that you or I are its descendents. The first Zionists, up until the Arab Revolt [1936-9], knew that there had been no exiling, and that the Palestinians were descended from the inhabitants of the land. They knew that farmers don’t leave until they are expelled. Even Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, the second president of the State of Israel, wrote in 1929 that, ‘the vast majority of the peasant farmers do not have their origins in the Arab conquerors, but rather, before then, in the Jewish farmers who were numerous and a majority in the building of the land.’”

One may wonder, if the Palestinians are the real Jews, who are those who insist upon calling themselves Jews?

Professor Sand leaves us with the inevitable conclusion. Contemporary Jews do not have a common origin and their Semitic origin is a myth. Jews have no origin in Palestine whatsoever and therefore, their act of so-called ‘return’ to their ‘promised land’ must be realised as an invasion executed by a tribal-ideological clan…..

Saul Landau, a Jewish director of over forty films is so disgusted with Zionazi state that in an article titled How Israel Gives Jews a Bad Name, wrote: “Most Jews I know get little pleasure from the existence of Israel; just the opposite. They are disgusted by the behavior of their tribal kins towards Palestinians. This antipathy doesn’t concern Israel’s right to exist, a phony argument still maintained by hardline Zionists. Israel exist, period. Most of the world recognizes that. Anyone wanting to eliminate it belongs in the loony bin or prison…..”

Al-Quraan al-Kareem 5. Surah Al-Ma’idah (The Table Spread with Food)

V.5:66. And if only they had acted according to the Taurât (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down to them from their Lord (the Qur’ân), they would surely have gotten provision from above them and from underneath their feet. There are from among them people who are on the right course (i.e. they act on the revelation and believe in Prophet Muhammad like ‘Abdullâh bin Salâm ), but many of them do evil deeds.

V.5:82. Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: “We are Christians.” That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.

Hey, Rev — When did they get to you?

Posted in Outing Liars with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2009 by The 800 Pound Gorilla

tedpikecapitolReverend Ted Pike of the National Prayer Network has done excellent work in the past exposing both Israeli criminality and the evil Talmudic teachings on which Israeli policy is based. Pike also deserves praise for his efforts in raising opposition to so-called “hate laws” crafted by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in order to stifle free speech and persecute dissenters.

It was with considerable disappointment, therefore, that the 800lb. Gorilla watched Pike’s recent video file, “Hate Law Jihad: Criminalizing Islam’s Critics,” in which the reverend makes the outrageous claim that Muslims represent the chief beneficiaries of current and pending “hate crimes” legislation.

The assertion is ludicrous on its face, as we all know that “hate laws” are the work of religion-hating Zionists, designed for use against their opponents — be they Christian, Muslim or otherwise.

So one has to wonder, Rev — when did they get to you?

As mentioned above, Ted Pike has done some admirable work in the past. His hour-long documentary “The Other Israel” is particularly worth watching as it covers several red-line issues, including the anti-gentile nature of the Talmud/Cabala; the Jewish hand behind the 1913 economic takeover of the United States and the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia; Jewish control over most political groups and radical movements in 20th century America; and Jewish control over US mass media. (Download it HERE )

In “The Other Israel,” Pike makes no bones about who’s really calling the shots, explicitly referring to the “Jewish domination of our [western] society.” At one point, he describes Jewish social and political domination in the US as “a demonically-empowered conspiracy.” Amen, reverend.

Yet regrettably, in his recent “Hate Law Jihad” video, Pike, for whatever reason, appears to have jumped aboard the anti-Islam bandwagon.

In the nine-minute presentation, he claims that sinister Muslim organizations — such as the Canadian Islamic Conference — represent the prime beneficiaries of current and future hate legislation. At one point, Pike even goes so far as to say that Muslim countries wield undue influence over decision-making at the United Nations.

“In the UN, Muslim groups on a much grander scale are attempting to end criticism of Islam worldwide,” he says. “The 56 Muslim nations dominating the General Assembly have repeatedly passed a symbolic resolution entitled ‘Combating Defamation of religion.’ Now they are pushing to make it a legally-binding and internationally-enforced Hate Crimes law against anyone who criticizes Islam.”

Just to clarify: Pike states that the United Nations — a Zionist world body founded (1945) for the express purpose of granting legitimacy to the otherwise-totally-illegitimate state of Israel (1948) — is in reality dominated by Muslims.

This reminds one of earlier absurdities by well-known disinformation merchants, such as Alex Jones’ claims that “the Arabs run Hollywood,” or speculation by Zionist apologist Israel Shamir (not to be confused with Israel Shahak) that “afro-Americans” are responsible for 9/11 .

Pike even goes so far as to compare Muslims with other “favored groups” protected under hate-crimes laws, including “homosexuals, adulterers, fornicators, Satanists and witches.” (One has to ask: when — especially within the context of the post-9/11 clash of civilizations — have Muslims ever been considered a “favored group” in the US, Canada or Europe?)

Pike does goes on, however, to identify the Jewish ADL as the chief architect of most current and pending hate legislation:

“In 1988, the Anti-Defamation League — a Jewish organization — sponsored a conference at New York’s prestigious Hofstra University. They began to craft a model anti-hate law for America,” he explains. “During the 1990s, the ADL convinced nearly 45 US states to adopt some version of its hate law.”

“In that same period, the ADL convinced more than a dozen governments in Europe, along with Australia and New Zealand, to establish hate-law bureaucracies. Yet the ADL’s primary goal in the US is to pass its Federal Hate Crimes Law…now in the house judiciary committee,” Pike adds. “This Orwellian legislation is very similar to the ADL’s Canadian Hate-Crimes Law, which took away free speech from Canada in 1971.”

Why, then, while conceding the Jewish origin of the “hate crimes” agenda, does Pike feel the need to portray Islam as a looming danger to our freedoms? The Islamic faith and Muslim peoples are, and continue to be, the victims of Zionist scheming, not its beneficiaries — and Ted Pike should know this.

Pike’s absurd claim does not represent his first transgression vis-à-vis the truth.

In another of his documentaries, “Why the Middle East Bleeds,” he cites Israeli criminality as a reason why “Al-Qaeda” attacked America on 9/11 — when he should know by now that most, if not all, recent acts of so-called “Islamic terrorism” have really been the work of Israeli false-flag operatives, including the 9/11 attacks. (For evidence of this, see Victor Thorn’s “9/11 Evil: Israel’s Central Role in the Attacks of September 11, 2001” and this concise document, entitled “The Muslims Didn’t Do It”.)

Is the reverend misinformed? Or is he purposely confusing the issue by creating destructive divisions between two faiths — Christianity and Islam — which, in reality, represent the most natural of allies in the fight against the Synagogue of Satan?

One thing’s for sure: with the window of opportunity for effective resistance narrowing daily, there simply isn’t time for this kind of misunderstanding and/or obfuscation. Who the enemy is — exactly — should be abundantly clear by now to anyone whose critical faculties are still intact.

Whether by accident or by design, Pike’s ludicrous assertions only serve to take fire off the enemy — which is, and has always been, criminal Zionism — and he should be called on it.

Rabbis go public with Talmudic Jesus hatred

The Jewish Daily Forward

April 29, 2009

The joke, if that’s what it is, goes like this: “You’ll have to forgive us Jews for being a little nervous. Two thousand years of Christian love have worn down our nerves.”

That says it all, doesn’t it? The scars of anti-Semitism and missionary activity, the pathos-drenched sense of humor, the contempt for Christianity — this is certainly how I regarded our local majority religion as I was growing up. When I was a child, Christianity was like the big, stupid bully: at once idiotic, and overwhelmingly powerful. Couldn’t they see how ridiculous their religion was? A virgin birth? Santa Claus? An Easter Bunny? A messiah who got killed, but actually died for our sins?

And yet, these were the people running our country, telling us which days we get off from school and which we don’t, and playing their insidious music every winter.

If the books the Forward receives for review are any indication, I am not alone in my neurosis about Yeshu ben Yoseph. Though nothing, it seems, will match the never-ending torrent of books about the Holocaust, these past few years have seen a small mountain of Jesus books arrive on my desk, most of them not worthy of review. Screeds about how Jesus got Judaism wrong, or how Christians got Jesus wrong, or how much better we are than they are — these are books my younger self would have written.

Surely, some of the Jesus fad is due to the success of David Klinghoffer’s 2005 book, “Why the Jews Rejected Jesus.” (Answer: We’re the chosen people — a nation, not universalists.) But I think a lot of it is also due to our increased confidence as an assimilated minority in the United States. Where once we could have been tortured or burned for not accepting Christ, now we can publish books criticizing him.

It was not always thus. Indeed, the texts discussed in the best book of the recent crop, Peter Schafer’s “Jesus in the Talmud,” were once considered so outrageous that they were self-censored from European editions of the Talmud. Not that the attempt succeeded: Christian authorities burned the Talmud anyway, and antisemitism continued unabated. But the censorship did succeed somewhat; these texts are practically unknown even today.

And they are still somewhat scandalous. What Schafer shows is that the rabbis of the Talmud knew the New Testament well enough to parody it and were concerned enough about the growth of the Jewish-Christian sect to condemn the testament. And they did so in unsparing terms.

The image of Jesus that one gets from the Talmud is that of an illicit, sex-crazed black magician who uses trickery to lead Israel astray. In BT Sanhedrin 103a, Jesus is depicted as a poor disciple who “spoiled his food,” which Schafer speculates may be a euphemism for sexual misconduct: “to eat the dish” being a recognized Talmudic euphemism known for the sex act itself. A later emendation adds that he “practiced magic and led Israel astray.” And the virgin birth is ridiculed as a cover-up of Jesus’ true parentage: His mother was an “illicit woman” (another Talmudic locution), perhaps even a prostitute.

Strong stuff — no wonder they don’t teach it in Sunday school. But fascinating, as well, as long as, of course, we don’t take it too seriously (which, doubtless, some Jews do). The texts Schafer adduces — all of them relatively late, dating to the third- or fourth-century C.E., suggesting a conscious effort to fight the upstart sect — show that the Talmudic rabbis did not reject Jesus for the noble reasons that Klinghoffer and his ilk suggest. At least according to these texts, they rejected him because they thought he was evil, or saw him as a threat.

The most notorious of all the “Jesus texts,” however, is BT Sanhedrin 43a, which describes the halachic procedure of Jesus’ trial and execution. This is notorious, of course, because for nearly 2,000 years, Christian authorities have been blaming the Jews for killing Jesus, even though the New Testament itself makes clear that it’s the Romans who actually did the deed. [This is, of course, false. The New Testament makes the Jews’ responsibility for Jesus’ death, and Pilate’s concomitant desire to avoid it, abundantly clear — 800]

Shockingly, however, the Talmud does not shirk responsibility for Jesus’ death. On the contrary, it says that he deserved it and that the Jews did it themselves. Jesus was, the text relates, a sorcerer, an idolater and a heretic who led Israel to idolatry. His conviction was entirely just, and his execution — stoning and then hanging — was carried out in strict accordance with rabbinic law.

Why would the Talmud make such a claim? Schafer speculates it is to undermine the Gospels’ account and empower the rabbis. In the Gospels’ account, the rabbis are tools, almost, of Rome. In the Talmud’s account, they are powerful — so powerful that they condemned the hero of the Christian sect to his brutal death. (Believe it or not, there are actually even more graphic texts, which Schafer includes in his book. Suffice to say, their gruesome account of hell puts even Dante to shame. But I’ll leave that out of this family newspaper.)

What’s fascinating about reading these texts together with Schafer’s careful and thorough commentary is that the ambivalence about Jesus, which I experienced as a young man, seems to be already in place back in the fourth century. On the one hand, Jesus is beneath contempt. On the other, he is dangerously powerful. These texts were written before the church became the most powerful force on Earth, but they wouldn’t be out of place among the books I chose not to include here.

Indeed, I’m sure that there are some readers who may have preferred these comments not be published at all. The texts in Schafer’s book are still dangerous. They still might incite violence against Jews. And they threaten decades of progress in Jewish-Christian relations.

One wonders when, if ever, we Jews will be able to heal from the trauma of Christian oppression [!!!] and actually learn from, while still differentiating ourselves from, Christian teaching and tradition. Along my own spiritual path, I’ve been amazed at how much I learn from the teachings of other traditions — Buddhism, Hinduism, Paganism, Sufism — yet how jittery I get when it comes to Christianity. Yes, like many Jews, I have an appreciation for the teachings of Jesus, and I even wrote my master’s thesis on Paul and the Talmud. But this isn’t enough. I want to understand Christ the way Christians do — not to become one of them, but in order to enrich my own religious life. I want to learn from them how to have a personal relationship with a personal, humanized, embodied God who cares, and who saves. I want to experience Jesus as a human being enlightened enough to see everyone as holy, even the impure, the leprous and the marginalized. And I want to follow his example, seeing all my fellow human beings and myself as sons and daughters of God.

Four years ago, I developed some of these thoughts in an essay in Zeek magazine. I playfully titled the piece “How I Finally Came to Accept Christ in My Heart,” explaining the irony in the first paragraph. At a conference where the magazines were for sale, someone saw that title, took the entire stack of magazines and threw it on the floor, proceeding to scream at the bookseller for selling missionary trash.

Well, I guess you’ll have to forgive us Jews for still being a little nervous…

A Cypto-jew and the Nazi underground movment “The Believer”

Posted in Essential Reading, Media Watch with tags , , , , , , , , on April 27, 2009 by The 800 Pound Gorilla

thebeliever_lRyan Gosling stars as Danny Balint, a Nazi youth whose influential way with words and speeches has earned him high regard amongst the underground movements in New York City. He has the ability to attract the right kind of attention to get where he wants to go; if Hitler had a reincarnation, this just might be it. But something else is troubling Danny, something rather unexpected: he himself happens to be of Jewish heritage. We see it not so much in words as we do in actions: during the breaking and entering into a synagogue by his neo-Nazi group, he is hesitant to destroy. When the time comes for him to prove himself by taking the life of a Jew, he backs down. Upon meeting Carla (Summer Phoenix), the daughter of a Fascist group leader (Theresa Russell), he does not try to dissuade her from learning the Hebrew language in order to read the Talmud.

somewhere near the end of the movie Danny is asked by his yeshiva childhood friends after stating their present occupations (Rabbi, Hebrew teacher, etc.) “What about you? What are you doing? Something strange, l bet. Uh,… No, it’s kind of an underground thing. Like an artist? No.Uh, like a private business.” indicating in my opinion that he was following the natural cores of his Talmudic teachings he received as a child. Even the scene opens with a Rabbi saying the line “The TaImud teaches us…”

Religious doubt leads to violence in this slice-of-lifer that won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival — now finally making tentative steps in general release.

Jewish self-hatred is an interesting foundation for a film, if only because it’s a subject never explored by an industry still apologizing for the Holocaust. The lengths to which someone will go to redefine and prove themselves a member of the enemy circle are certainly compelling. But when the main character in question dives between extremes without a single clear definition of his motives, the strength of the narrative suffers. A double life can only work when you are aware of some of the triggers that push some semblance of reality into the character in question.

Danny’s (Ryan Gosling) Jewish schooling has apparently left him with so many doubts, that the only cure for his intellectual suffering is the impenetrable wish to kill them all. Jews run and own everything anyway, so this will be a popular new sport to reset society, right? Finish what Hitler started!

Danny is encouraged along this bastardly streak by a Fascist circle he easily, miraculously even, finds on the Internet, headed by Curtis (Billy Zane, Titanic) and Lina (Theresa Russell, Black Widow). These two folks don’t have the passionate quality that Danny has when he speaks, even though they have the intellectual capacity to back themselves in a fight, which Danny can’t. With each prank Danny pulls, they edge him towards public speaking for fundraising, while their daughter Carla (Summer Phoenix) finds ways to uncover Danny’s Judaism and sleep with him.

Danny’s brutality is acceptable because that is how we first see him. His mindset is a little hard to swallow, because an intelligent 26-year old could definitely find better pursuits, even when approaching his internal boiling point. His struggle as he is received farther into the Nazi underworld is nicely portrayed with poignant undertones. Danny’s internal battle is compulsively watchable once these theorems are digested, like taking a geometry course.

The problem becomes why he all of the sudden feels an affinity for his previous life, seemingly just by looking at Torah scrolls. It’s one thing to fake missing a gunshot because actually killing another person takes more mental preparation than you bargained for. It’s another to begin vandalizing a synagogue, only to stop in the middle of it because the Torah has been uncovered. These quick changes of behavioral pattern are rampant throughout the film, and hurt the overall quality of pain Danny is experiencing.

And, unfortunately, due to stodgy, soap opera-ish dialogue, the rest of the cast comes across as stick figures reading lines from a TelePrompTer. For all of the assumptive commentary spoken by Danny’s elders and leaders, not one of them holds an emotional link to their words that makes them believable. Maybe this is supposed to complement Danny’s rapid mood swings, but instead leaves each scene boringly predictable in terms of interaction and outcome.

The Believer is a good idea at its base. If Danny’s journey between despising and affirming his background had been better plotted, it could even be used to discuss religious questioning with those institutions that are always complaining about the apathy of the young, no matter what the denomination.

Israel’s Drug Trade

Posted in Media Watch with tags , , , , on April 13, 2009 by The 800 Pound Gorilla

why_di29The Jewish Journal
April 8, 2009

In the late 1990s, Ecstasy was the favorite drug of the party crowd, and the Israeli mafia wasted little time staking its claim. Using strippers, elderly folks and Charedi teens as drug-running mules, a handful of Israeli ex-pats operated across Europe and the United States, and made a killing in the Ecstasy business.

Lisa Sweetingham, a former senior staff writer for CourtTV.com, details this industry and the investigators who brought it down in her first book, “Chemical Cowboys,” published in February by Ballantine Books.

Jewish Journal: What turned you on to this story? Lisa Sweetingham: Back in 1999, there was a story in The New York Times that caught my interest. It was about these young, ultra-Orthodox teenagers getting caught at JFK Airport with Ecstasy pills wrapped up in socks in their suitcases. It was one after another.

JJ: What was their role? LS: There was a guy named Oded Tuito, the Fat Man. He was the kingpin. He would never have used Charedi, but there was a rogue dealer who worked for him for a while and then broke off and decided he wanted to make money. He moved to Amsterdam and set up his own network. He was smart and clever, and decided to go for broke. Sean Erez was his name. Sean Erez thought it would be really smart to use these ultra-Orthodox youth, because nobody would actually suspect these really pious-looking teenagers. Some of them really didn’t know what they were doing. They got a free trip to Europe and maybe $1,500 in cash and were told to take these suitcases back. I think most of them knew something was off, but Sean would tell them they were smuggling diamonds to the Holy Land.

JJ: How did drugs get from Israel to the streets of Los Angeles or a rave in Barstow or wherever?

LS: The drugs weren’t made in Israel; instead, they left it up to the Dutch chemists. There were these giant underground labs where the chemists would make the pills. An Israeli financier would put in $1 million, maybe a couple million. His point man in the Netherlands would walk into a bar and say I need 500,000 pills, and maybe he’d pay $1 a pill. Then those pills would be sold to another distributor for $5 or $6 per pill. Right there, you’ve already made $2.5 million. Then that person would have either Midwestern-looking folks who they hired to mule the pills over, or sometimes they used strippers — that was really popular — or sometimes they’d put them in container ships and hide them inside auto machinery or a shipment of Dutch tulips. And then you’d have the point man in the party triangle — New York, Miami and Los Angeles — and they would then sell those pills, which were now up to $6, for $13 a piece to their distributors, who could sell them for $20 to $50 in the nightclubs. Everybody takes a cut along the way. But you start out with a pill that costs about 25 cents to make and fetches up to $50.

JJ: ‘Chemical Cowboys’ opens with a hit in the San Fernando Valley. This was a turning point for the Ecstasy trade. LS: Up until that point, law enforcement in America considered Ecstasy kiddie dope. Nobody was following it. Nobody cared about it. Then when they found a dead body in the trunk of a Lexus in Brentwood and it was linked back to Ecstasy dealers, they began to see that these were real bad guys.

JJ: Just how did the Israeli mafia come to dominate the trafficking? LS: The yordim in America, who were involved in organized crime, had been pushing marijuana, cocaine, heroin, but they could never make the high-level profits that you could when you were at ground zero for production. That was all tied up with the Colombian and Mexican cartels, and you can’t muscle in on them. They saw that they could get in on the ground level on Ecstasy, that nobody was paying attention in law enforcement and that the demand outpaced the supply, so there was plenty of business for everybody to take a piece.

JJ: But a collaboration of American and Israeli police broke this ring, right? LS: Without it, American law enforcement would have never been able to take down the Ecstasy trade. In fact, it’s become a model.

JJ: And what was the L.A. connection in all this? LS: There were a lot of expats living in Encino, the Sherman Oaks area. These guys were essentially living really normal lives. Oded Tuito, here’s a guy who was on the president’s kingpin list, and for a while he was living in a cute little house in Woodland Hills. He was really a family man, but he also was commanding a multimillion-dollar Ecstasy business.

JJ: Eventually they caught up with him. LS: Yeah. But if not for the help of Israeli police and Spanish police, he would have never been caught.

JJ: What has happened since to the love drug? LS: Israeli organized crime has abandoned the trade. There is a case pending now: Itzhak Abergil is in Israeli custody now. It looks like he’ll be extradited before the end of the year to Los Angeles, where he faces federal charges on Ecstasy trafficking and murder. Most of the mafia bosses in Israel, I don’t see them getting involved with Ecstasy again. It’s too risky; there were too many high-profile arrests.

Israelis at center of ecstasy drug trade
Haaretz (Israel)

April 13, 2009

Israel is at the center of international trade in the drug ecstasy, according to a document published last week by the U.S. State Department.

In recent years, organized crime in Israel, some with links to criminal organizations in Russia, have come to control the distribution of the drug in Europe, according to a Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs document.

The same document also points out that Israeli criminal groups have a hand in the distribution of ecstasy in North America.

During 2000, 80 percent of the ecstasy seized in North America originated in the Netherlands, which is the largest production center, along with Belgium and Poland. The State Department is certain that Israeli organizations are linked to the laboratories in the Netherlands and are responsible for the worldwide distribution.

“Israeli drug distribution organizations are currently the main source for distribution of the drug to groups inside the U.S., to smuggling through express mail services, through couriers on commercial flights and, recently, through air cargo,” states the report. In the past two years, the U.S. has dealt more severely with ecstasy. Federal judges deal with smugglers in the ecstasy trade with the same severity as heroin and cocaine dealers
