ERETZ YISRAEL AND ITS THOUSAND MIRACLES

“THE old man stood high on the hillside, the Israelites below him hushed and expectant as they waited for him to continue. These were his people, the flock he had shepherded for over 40 years. Moses’ voice rang clear through the desert air: ‘The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his own possession, out of all the peoples that are on the face of the earth’ (Deuteronomy 7:6).”

 

There is something magic about Israel. It could be related to religious pulse that is so strong over there or it could be some historical reflection that leads us into the past, like in perfect time machine. Once you are there, you will never be the same again. The beauty of Israel has been  born on the sand, tears, pain and hope of Jewish people that they will find finally their lost home. From the ancient beginning, they have been terrorized, maybe because they have always been the beloved God’s people, those who have crossed the fires and oceans for him, without any complaints, those who have died milion times to be born again, to celebrate God’s name. The Jews have never given up to protect the strong character of Moses in their blood, they have never given up to believe that peace is possible and that they will reach their land and turn it into home for all.

I am wandering through the Old City of Jerusalem and I am so thankful for a chance to be there, to breathe the air of the Holy City. It was a wonderful feeling to step on the stone of city that has kissed three main religions:Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  Jerusalem is a pearl of God and bone for a Devil. It is protected to be holy and no matter what kind of religion we are standing for, Jerusalem is embracing us and comforting us. Even atheists and agnostics experience some kind of Jerusalem syndrome and they do not know how to explain it, how to admit that there is something over there that reshapes our whole known world at one moment and make us more sensible and more emotional. What else we need more than that?

While I am walking down to the streets of the Jerusalem open market, hidden between the walls of the Damascus gate, I am witnessing the oriental alluring of the legendary bazaar mixed with the Jewish perfection. You can find Aladdin magic lamp if you search long enough but you can be impressed with the most amazing diamond ring you have ever seen in your life. Thousand of colors, scents and tastes are built the Jerusalem as it is now. You live the history with the touch of God’s hand and Jerusalem gives you a ticket for return to innocence.  The spiritual oriented Jews, Muslims and Christians are crossing each others road and each of them is seeking his own God but they are all in the God’s city. The sound of Muslim ezan is welcoming the new morning at the same time when churches and synagogues are ready for their daily prayers. If there is a golden city with harmony, that must be Jerusalem. I tried to discuss my soul feelings with one deep thinker, Alon, Hasidic Jew who I met at the Western Wall. He was very interested to clarify to me many difficult issues from Hasidism since I was positively surprised with the growing number of Hasidic Jews in Jerusalem. It looks like that many Jews have accepted Hasidic teaching as the bridge to the God’s beloved servant.  As Alon has explained, the point of Hasidism is to teach people to be better God’s children, to practice joy, trust,  friendship  and love through the intellectual development and spiritual achievement. They are some kind of mystics and it is my first impression seeing them how they hurry up to the Wailing Wall, followed by their amazing wives and adorable children. The importance of family is so strong like nowhere else. Jews have learnt through their painful years of history that only thing that endures is a family. They have survived because they have believed in God in their darkest nights, they have read Torah when the books have been burnt and they have protected one another when being a Jew was the worst destiny ever.

Alon is 37 years old and has wife and five children. He told me that Israel is so special because it is located in the center of the world, the chain between Asia, Africa and Europe. Considering this, Jerusalem is a center of the center of the world, the most desired part of the Earth’s territory. In spite of Muslims who claim that Jerusalem and Israel must belong to Arab nations and Christians who cant forgive the bad luck of Jesus Christ over there, it is almost a religious rule to whom really belong land of Israel. First of all, it belongs to God and the God is the only one who will decide to who it will give. The second, God has promised the land to the descendants of Abraham, to his son Isaac:“Even though Abraham had many sons, the Land of Israel wasn’t given to Ishmael, or to any of the others sons of Abraham, but only to Isaac. Abraham said to God, ‘Oh that Ishmael might live before You!’ But God said ‘No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him’ (Genesis 17:18-19). God rejected Abraham’s prayer that Ishmael would be the heir of the covenant, and appointed Isaac instead. Years later the Lord God appeared to Isaac and said, ‘to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham. And I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed’ (Genesis 26:3-4). Knowing that Isaac was the heir of the covenant, which included the Land of Israel, Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac. He gave gifts to his other sons, but he sent them away to the lands of the east, not wanting the heir of the covenant to have rivalry over the Land of Israel from his siblings (Genesis 25:5-6).”

This is very critical issue nowadays because of the conflict with Arabian part of the world and their attempts to conquer Jerusalem as the holy city and to remove Jews from Eretz Yisrael. They read their God’s instruction and  all they want is to make a full circle, to overtake the city of King David and to close the chapters of Judaism and Christianity. From my point of view, the Palestinian fight for West Bank is actually fight for Judea and Samaria, the fight against Jewish State of Israel and not for freedom. Those people are injected with hatred from Arab neighbours that bring an oil into the fire of land of Israel. What is happening? The silent war that last for decades and it is differently portrayed in medias all over the world. Some media have shown only the killed Palestinian children and they accuse Israeli Army for lack of empathy for “poor people”. How they could be poor when they are willing to give birth to their children and to send them as a weapon for interests of some terrorists organisations ? I am very sorry, that could not be declared as a war for freedom but more as an act of terrorist madness. They push their poor and innocent children into the murders even if they themselves do not know what they are fighting for. It is more than sad to know that army of those people are opinionated though the bunch of terrorists with golden rings and happy bank accounts.

I had a luck to talk to Abdul-Haq, while I was watching the killing  tranquility of Dead Sea, at Kavalia Beach. His name means the Servant of the Truth, in Arabic, and I am sure that Abdul was telling me a truth:” I am 29 years old. I live in Jerusalem. I work in a Bank. I am a happy man in Israel. I am Muslim but I love Israel. Why? Because I have an opportunity to have good job and good future. My sister is studying and traveling a lot. She has right to be dressed as she want. We have no pressure and we do not need any kind of pressure from militant Islam. ”  Abdul is not the only one Muslim who has respect for Jewish State of Israel, there are many others but they are afraid from the extremists of their own kind.

Everyone will notice that israeli Army and Police is everywhere but the established  feeling of safety is something that many western countries should learn from. Even when you are at night alone,  in the Jerusalem darkness, you are safe. Maybe it could be because of all God they are watching over there or because of brave soldiers and police officers that they do their job, but you are not afraid and you are feel like you are at home, accepted just the way you are.

From the golden surface of Jerusalem, through the mysterious archeological sites of Masada and forgotten life at Dead Sea, to the Golan Heights and view on Syrian landscape, Israel lives and gives life to those who need it. It is a brilliant country with friendly people who make me cry with their warm hearts and welcoming notes. I can be lost for the rest of my life over there and never wanted to be found, trying to eat hummus with my fingers or to make food according to rules of kosher. Maybe I will start learning Hebrew so I can better understand the costs in the free city under the shiny stars.

If I have somewhere felt that I belong to, then it is the land of Israel, the sun of the sky, the eyes of God, and it applies on me the following paragraph from Ezekiel:”I will take you from the nations, and gather you from all the countries, and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses . . A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you . . . and the land that was desolate shall be tilled, instead of being the desolation that it was in the sight of all who passed by” (36:24-26,34).”

Please, keep praying for peace of  Jerusalem:“May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” We have only one Jerusalem and we must protect it, as well as land of Israel.

5 thoughts on “ISRAEL: GOD’S PEOPLE AND GOD’S LAND

  1. Sarah’s informative and allusive article reminded me that more entities are shared in common between Semitic peoples (e.g. Arabs and Hebrews) than divide them, throughout Asia Minor and The Levant.

    The oldest archaeological evidence of early humans in present-day Israel dates to 1.5 million years ago (i.e. in Ubeidiya, near The Sea of Galilee); humans moving up from Africa. Eventually, these Homo sapiens evolved into the Canaanite peoples/culture. The Semitic peoples (e.g. Hebrews and Arabs) emerged from this background, along with their languages. What became the Israelites were people from the Canaanites, and they remained pagan, until the hierarchy manifested a monotheistic religious belief system, just like Arab-Muslim hierarchies.

    During The Neolithic Age, The Agricultural Revolution took place in The Fertile Crescent. This resulted in widespread trade and more permanent urban communities. Arabs and Hebrews were the pagan Semites of the region, then. Along with societal developments, these people created their own distinctive forms of social control (e.g. laws, religion and culture) from the same progenitors (i.e. previous societal examples of past civilisations).

    Out of this emerged the local cuisines, music and other artistic expressions that have many similarities between modern-day Arab-Muslim examples and those of Orthodox-Jews.

    Additionally, they worship the same god, they both regard Jerusalem is a sacred place, the Orthodox among them observe religiously-mandated dietary rules and regulations, a mosque and a synagogue come from similar architectural origins, the oldest regional Muslim and Jewish cities shared the same designs, and traditions of religious storytelling are similar.

    We live in an age now (i.e. climate change) that requires humans to put aside their political differences, and work together to overcome the most pressing issues of environmental damage. Throughout The Levant, Arab-Muslims and Israeli-Jews have the capacity to co-operate and create a sustainable society that highlights the common connections between them.

  2. Awww ! What a beautiful and heartwarming story, Sarah !

    I have heard beautiful things about Israel in general and Jerusalem in particular. You have, through your article herein, ratified the veracity of all I have heard !

    Indeed, Jewish people have suffered through the ages and have endured many atrocities. It is time they lived peacefully and happily without having to worry about who is trying to stab them in the back !

    May there be peace in Jerusalem and in Israel eternally ! May all the people there, irrespective of their religious beliefs, get along and live in peace forever !

  3. A VILE GOD, A VILE BOOK AND A VILE PEOPLE

    THE GENOCIDAL GOD OF THE JEWS

    “I form the LIGHT, and create DARKNESS. I make PEACE, and create EVIL.
    I the LORD do all these things.” – Isaiah 45.7.

    All cultures have anthropomorphized their gods into humanoid (if sometimes grotesque) form. Were the Jews the exception? Hardly. We know precisely what the Hebrew god looked like. We are, after all, fashioned in his own likeness!”Yahweh”, in fact, is an abbreviation of the longer name, “Yahweh Sabaoth.” It means, “He who musters armies.” Thus Yahweh’s name identifies the god primarily as the military leader of the tribe. No wonder the God bequeathed to the world by the Jews turned out to be a monster.

    RICHARD DAWKINS QUOTE IS INCOMPLETE:

    RICHARD DAWKINS SHOULD HAVE SAID:

    “The God of the Old Testament/New Testament/Quran is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

    RICHARD DAWKINS DIDN’T SAY:

    “The God of the Zionist Israeli Jew is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

    A GOD IN THE IMAGE OF THE JEW

    “The Lord is a man of war; Yahweh is his name.” – Exodus 15.3.

    “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.”
    Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

    Without a doubt, the human race has been bludgeoned with books about this one tome, the Jewish Bible. The Jewish Bible is full of violence and ugly stories, with a few “feel-good” platitudes and parables interspersed. It’s hardly worth reading. Other than a handful of spiritual gems that can be found in virtually any religion, the Jewish Bible is irrelevant. A person with an innate sense of right and wrong needs none of its teachings, sparse as they are. Reading the Jewish Bible, in fact, can make one highly depraved. Many a serial rapist and killer has also been a Jewish Bible fanatic. They have taken seriously the punishments exacted throughout the Old Testament, such as stoning for “adulterous” women, “the Lord” punishing “his chosen” by making them eat each other, etc., ad nauseam.

    MOSES WAS A WAR CRIMINAL

    In Numbers 31:14-18, Moses becomes enraged that his minions hadn’t finished off the people of Midian after the Hebrews had destroyed and pillaged the Midianites’ cities and enslaved the survivors. Moses immediately orders his thugs to kill all the male children and married women but to reserve the virgin girls for themselves – to rape, of course.

    We often hear people say,

    “If only Jews would return to the Law of Moses!
    “Instead, they follow their secular, atheistic, and Zionist ways!”

    They express horror at the recent deliberate slaughter of Gazans, particularly the slaughter of women and children. (1)
    But haven’t these folks ever read the Hebrew Bible? Are they unaware of the influence of the Old Testament on Judaism?

    Please open your Hebrew Bible. For the moment, focus your attention on the Book of Numbers.

    You are about to learn that Moses, the great “law giver,” was a war criminal who ORDERED his followers to commit war crimes. The most heinous were crimes were committed against women and children.

    NUMBERS 31:13-18:
    (13) Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp.
    (14) But Moses was furious with all the generals and captains who had returned from the battle.
    (15) “Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded.
    (16) “These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the Lord at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the Lord’s people.
    (17) So kill all the boys and all the women who have had intercourse with a man.
    ( 18 ) Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

    The rest of Chapter 31 is concerned with distributing the Midianite plunder. Thirty-two thousand (32,000) virgin girls were counted in the booty (Verse 35). Thirty-two of these were given to “the Lord.” That is, 32 of these little girls were set aside for the Levities (heave offerings), to be used as concubines (Verses 40 and 41).

    Yes, Numbers 31 says what it says.
    The Babylonian Talmud sages used Numbers 31 to justify having sex with children. And since the Talmud sages, along with Christians, regard the Old Testament as “the word of God,” why beat up on the Talmud sages? Why not beat up on Jehovah and Moses, who set the standards?

    For further discussion of Jewish teachings on sex with children, see the Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Yebamoth 60b, Soncino 1961 Edition, page 402. Discussion and links at http://www.come-and-hear.com/editor/america_2.html
    It’s true. Moses was a war criminal. The Hebrew Bible tells you so. Should we be surprised at how women and children were treated in Gaza?

    TORAH JESUS ENDORSES TORAH
    For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
    Matthew 5:18

    JESUS ENDORSED MOSES:
    “Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, in whom you have put your hope. 46 If you had believed Moses, you would believe Me, because he wrote about Me. 47But since you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?”…
    John 5:45 47

    Hardly something we should be teaching our children. The Jewish Bible is the ultimate control device.

    NATURAL BORN KILLERS
    God tells Abraham to sacrifice Isaac.
    (Genesis 22.2)
    Boy terrified in ritual abuse in the mountains -Yahweh cult’s ‘Test of Fear’
    “God put Abraham to the test … Abraham built an altar … bound Isaac hand & foot … took the slaughtering knife to kill his son … But the angel of the Lord began calling … ‘Do not put out your hand against the boy …. for now I know that you fear the Lord …’ (Genesis 22.1,12)

    The story of Isaac is NOT a condemnation of child sacrifice. Isaac was spared not because human sacrifice was seen to be wrong but because Isaac was the “child of promise” and needed to survive. The yarn requires the normality of human sacrifice. Abraham was praised for his willingness to appease Yahweh by killing his own son. The sham murder of Isaac (the ‘Aquedah’) was the prototype for a ‘redemptive sacrificial death’ subsequently re-worked as the crucified Jesus.

    It should be noted that in the biblical text, Isaac (like Jesus) is repeatedly called “the only son” of Abraham (Genesis 22.2., 12., 16.) even though Abraham actually has another, older son, Ishmael.

    Moses orders Levite fanatics to murder 3000 golden-calf enthusiasts.
    (Exodus 32.27,29)
    BLESSED MURDERERS
    “‘Today,’ Moses said, ‘you have consecrated yourself to Yahweh, at the cost of your sons and brothers. And so he bestows a blessing on you today.'”
    When the Lord says kill everyone He means EVERYONE!

    Saul loses out:
    “You didn’t kill enough,” says the Lord. “You can’t be king!”

    “And Saul defeated the Amalekites … and devoted to destruction all the people … But Saul spared Agag and … all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them. All that was despised and worthless they devoted to destruction.
    And Samuel said, “What then is this bleating of the sheep in my ears and the lowing of the oxen that I hear?” … Then Samuel said, “Bring here to me Agag the king of the Amalekites.” And Agag came to him cheerfully … And Samuel hacked Agag to pieces before the LORD in Gilgal. And the LORD regretted that he had made Saul king over Israel.”
    – 1 Samuel 15

    The LORD delivers 10,000 Canaanites and Perizzites for slaughter in Bezek. As part of the fun 71 kings have their thumbs and big toes cut off.
    (Judges 1.2,7)

    “And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand … Then Judah went up, and the Lord delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand; and they killed ten thousand men at Bezek.”
    – Judges 1.2-4.

    Elisha orders the assassination of Jezebel.
    (2 Kings 9,5,37)
    Joshua Slaughters 31 kings
    (Joshua 12.1,24)
    Elijah Murders 450 Priests of Baal.
    (1 Kings 18.40)
    Samson Slays 1000 Philistines (with an ass’s jawbone! )
    (Judges 15.16)
    King Amaziah of Judah (c. 801–783 BC) throws 10,000 captive Edomites from the top of a rock.
    (2 Chronicles 25.12)
    Usurper Jehu tricks all the priests of Baal into temple slaughter.
    (2 Kings 10.19.30)
    “Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal. And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.”
    THE JEWISH GOD WAS DELIGHTED WITH THE MASSACRE

    “And the LORD said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing right in mine eyes, hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the 4th generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.”

    In Joshua’s wars of conquest, God gets right in there. He throws down ‘great stones from heaven’ (Joshua 10.11) and scores a better body-count than his Israelites with mere swords. When the Lord gets up a real head of steam the slaughter reaches a truly epic scale. For merely looking into his Ark, Yahweh wipes out fifty thousand and seventy unfortunate men of Bethshemesh (1 Samuel 6.19). When King David slips up and orders a national census, an enraged God zaps seventy thousand.

    Quite apart from the celestial superman’s own killing, he animates his favourites into wiping out whole cities and nations. Jericho, Sodom, Gomorrah, Ai, Makkedah, Libnah etc., etc., are ‘smote and consumed’ – men, women, young, old, ox, sheep and ass!

    ‘You shall annihilate them – Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, Jebusites – as Yahweh your God commanded you.’
    – Deuteronomy 20.11,18.

    In the largest single god-inspired massacre in the Bible, one million (1,000,000) Ethiopians are slaughtered! (2 Chronicles 14).

  4. GENTILES IN HALACHA

    Foreword — Daat Emet

    For a long time we have been considering the necessity of informing our readers about Halacha’s real attitude towards non-Jews. Many untrue things are publicized on this issue and the facts should be made clear. But recently, we were presented with a diligently written article on the subject, authored by a scholar from the Merkaz HaRav yeshiva — so our job was done by others (though we have already discussed some aspects of this issue in the weekly portions of Balak and Matot; see there). Since there is almost no disagreement between us and the author of the article on this issue, we have chosen to bring the article “Jews Are Called ‘Men'” by R’ David Bar-Chayim (in Hebrew) so that the reader will be able to study and understand the attitude of the Halacha towards non-Jews.
    In this article R’ Bar-Chayim discusses the attitude towards “Gentiles” in the Torah and in the Halacha and comes to an unambiguous conclusion:

    “The Torah of Israel makes a clear distinction between a Jew, who is defined as ‘man,’ and a Gentile.”

    That is to say, any notion of equality between human beings is irrelevant to the Halacha. R’ Bar-Chayim’s work is comprehensive, written with intellectual honesty, and deals with almost all the aspects of Halachic treatment of non-Jews. It also refutes the statements of those rabbis who speak out of wishful thinking and, influenced by concepts of modern society, claim that Judaism does not discriminate against people on religious grounds. R’ Bar-Chayim shows that all these people base their constructs not on the Torah but solely on the inclinations of their own hearts. He also shows that there are even rabbis who intentionally distort the Halachic attitude to Gentiles, misleading both themselves and the general public.
    For the English readers’ convenience we will briefly mention the topics dealt with in R’ Bar-Chayim’s article:

    1. Laws in regard to murder, which clearly state that there is Halachic difference between murder of a Jew and of a Gentile (the latter is considered a far less severe crime).

    2. A ban on desecrating the Sabbath to save the life of a Gentile.

    3. A Jew’s exemption from liability if his property (e. g. ox) causes damage to a Gentile’s property. But if a Gentile’s property causes damage to a Jew’s property, the Gentile is liable.

    4. The question of whether robbery of a Gentile is forbidden by the Torah’s law or only by a Rabbinic decree.

    5. A ban on returning a lost item to a Gentile if the reason for returning it is one’s sympathy towards the Gentile and compassion for him.

    6. The sum which a Gentile overpays in a business transaction due to his own error is forfeit; whether a Jew is permitted to intentionally deceive a Gentile is also discussed.

    7. One who kidnaps a Jew is liable to death, but one who kidnaps a Gentile is exempt.

    8. A Jew who hurts or injures a Gentile is not liable for compensation of damage, but a Gentile who hurts a Jew is liable to death.

    9. One who overcharges a Gentile ought not return him the sum that the Gentile overpaid.

    10. A Gentile — or even a convert to Judaism — may not be appointed king or public official of any sort (e. g. a cabinet minister).

    11. One who defames a female proselyte (claiming that she was not virgin at the time of her marriage) is liable to neither lashes nor fine.

    12. The prohibition to hate applies only to Jews; one may hate a Gentile.
    13. One may take revenge against or bear a grudge towards Gentiles; likewise, the commandment “love your neighbor” applies only to Jews, not to Gentiles.
    14. One who sees Gentile graveyards should curse: “Your mother shall be greatly ashamed…”

    15. Gentiles are likened to animals.

    16. If an ox damaged a Gentile maidservant, it should be considered as though the ox damaged a she-ass.
    17. The dead body of a Gentile does not bear ritual impurity, nor does a Gentile who touches the dead body of a Jew become impure — he is considered like an animal who touched a dead body.
    18. One is forbidden to pour anointing oil on a Jew, but there is no ban on pouring that oil on a Gentile because Gentiles are likened to animals.
    19. An animal slaughtered by a Gentile is forbidden, even if the ritual slaughter performed was technically correct, because Gentiles are deemed like animals. (Daat Emet does not agree that this is the Halachic reason for invalidating a Gentile’s ritual slaughter — but this is not the place to delve into the subject).
    20. Their members are like those of asses” — Gentiles are likened to animals.
    21. Between the Jews and the Gentiles — In the Aggadah, the Kabbalah, and in Jewish Thought

    R’ Bar-Chayim’s arguments and conclusions are clear, Halachically accurate, and supported by almost all the existent major Halachic works. It would be superfluous to say that R’ Bar-Chayim fully embraces this racist Halachic outlook as the word of the Living G-d, as he himself pointed out in the “Conclusion” of his article: “It is clear to every Jew who accepts the Torah as G-d’s word from Sinai, obligatory and valid for all generations, that it is impossible to introduce ‘compromises’ or ‘renovations’ into it.”
    On the other hand, we want to make it clear that Daat Emet — as well as any reasonable people who do not embrace Halachic laws as the word of the Living G-d — are repulsed by such evil, racist discrimination.

    In the Hebrew text we have abridged the second part of R’ Bar-Chayim’s article, “Between Jews and Gentiles — In the Aggadah, the Kabbalah, and in Jewish Thought,” because, in our view, the Halacha is the law which obligates every religious Jew while concepts of the Aggadah, the Kabbalah, and Jewish thought are not binding on anyone, as our rabbis have already written: “And so the Aggadic constructs of the disciples of disciples, such as Rav Tanchuma and Rabbi Oshaya and their like — most are incorrect, and therefore we do not rely on the words of Aggadah” (Sefer HaEshkol, Laws of a Torah Scroll, p. 60a); we have expanded on this issue in the portion of Vayeshev.

    NON JEWS ARE LOWER THAN ANIMALS

    Gentile souls are even lower than animal souls according to the following rabbinical scriptural statements. Also, according to the Jews all evil resides only in the Gentiles. That is why they treat Gentiles all like demons who are to be simply exterminated like vermin.

    Rabbi Abraham Issac HaCohen Kook
    In the book “Orot,” Orot Yisrael chapter 5, article 10 (page 156), Rabbi Kook wrote:

    “The difference between the Jewish soul, in all its independence, inner desires, longings, character and standing, and the soul of all the Gentiles, on all of their levels, is greater and deeper than the difference between the soul of a man and the soul of an animal, for the difference in the latter case is one of quantity, while the difference in the first case is one of essential quality.”

    Rabbi Tzadok HaCohen of Lublin
    In the book “Poked Akarim” page 19, column 3, he wrote:

    “Concerning what is explained in Yevamot, ‘You are called men,’ and not the other nations, [the meaning is] that the Gentiles were deprived of the title ‘men’ only where Israel were called ‘men,’ because in comparison to Israel, who are the primary form of man in the Divine Chariot, it is irrelevant to call any of the Gentiles ‘men’; at most, they are like animals in the form of men. Taken as themselves, however, all the children of Noah are considered men…and when the Messiah comes…they too will recognize and admit that there are none called ‘man’ except Israel…anyway, in comparison to Israel even now they are in the category of animals…”

    In “Pri Tzadik” part 1, page 30, column 3, he wrote:

    “…before the Giving of the Torah, the souls of the nations and of Israel were all at one level, for good and evil and the filth of the snake were all combined. When Israel received the Torah and were chosen to be a special nation, the filth ceased to exist in them and consequently, the roots of their souls were separated [from those of the Gentiles]…And all the good was rooted and set aside for the souls of Israel, and all the evil found root in the souls of the other nations, for they all are part of the evil and Satan’s camp…”

    Gentile souls are even lower than animal souls according to the following rabbinical scriptural statements. Also, according to the Jews all evil resides only in the Gentiles. That is why they treat Gentiles all like demons who are to be simply exterminated like vermin.

  5. THE JEWISH KABBALAH
    WHAT IS KABBALAH?
    Today, “Kabbalah” makes most think of pop stars like Madonna or Britney Spears who dabble in the occult. Actually, Kabbalah has no real relevance to Gentiles. It is an occult theology and practice centering around the superiority of Jews and their predestined purpose to dominate society.
    While conservatives focus on the dark side of Islam, they take it for granted that Judaism is a benign religion of peace and tolerance. But if we are brave enough to take a closer look, we find a very, very different reality. Deep in the heart of Judaism’s sacred texts lie a set of twisted and chilling beliefs.
    Christian-Jewish historian Alfred Eidersheim comments:
    “It is undeniable that already at the time of Jesus Christ, there existed an assemblage of doctrines and speculations that were carefully concealed from the multitude. They were not even revealed to ordinary scholars. This kind bore the name of Kabbala.” [1]
    In Kabbalist theology, “God”, called the “En Sof”, is beyond rational description. He consists of the most exalted, rarified light. As his wavelengths descend, they manifest themselves, according to Jewish Kabbalists, as a most wonderful phenomenon: the Jewish people. Jews, being semi-divine, are the rational, physical manifestations of God’s presence in the universe. They are as indispensable to the existence of the universe as a proton is to an atom.
    EVIL GENTILES:
    Unfortunately, the wavelengths of God continue to descend, becoming so degenerate that they produce demons and – most troubling to Israel – satanic creatures called “Kliphoth,” or Gentiles. The rabbinic treatise, “Sepher Or Israel, 117”, recommends:
    “Take the life of the Klipoth and kill them, and you will please God the same as one who offers incense to Him.” [2]
    The Zohar, meaning “brightness” or “light”, is the five-volume repository of Kabbalistic lore and mystic speculation. It explains:
    “‘living soul’ refers to Israel who have holy, living souls from above, and ‘cattle’ and ‘creeping thing’ and ‘beast of the earth’ to the other peoples who are not ‘living soul’.” [3]
    BAD VIBRATIONS:
    According to the Zohar, the great tragedy of this world is that the Kliphoth or Gentiles perpetually unsettle the higher levels with their evil imbalance. As long as the Kliphoth continue to exist in their present state of discord, God and His universe will be disordered as well.
    In this concept we find a rationale for the Kabbalists’ hatred of Gentiles. Jesus said, “The time cometh that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.” (John 16:2)
    The Kabbalist sees the extermination of the Gentile as a necessary process toward restoring order in the universe. He teaches that the Gentile is a form of demon who should be treated with no more genuine benevolence than one would treat Satan himself.
    Gentiles, whom the Zohar describes as “Amalekites”, have an intrinsic tendency to disorder the world, causing it to revert to its primordial state of chaos (tohu) and emptiness (bohu).
    “All of these [Gentiles] tend to bring the world back to the state of tohu and bohu, and they caused the destruction of the temple. But as “tohu” and “bohu” gave place to the light, so, when God reveals Himself, they will be wiped off the earth. But, withal, redemption will not be complete until Amalek will be exterminated.” [4]
    “The People of the Earth are idolaters, and it has been written about them: Let them be wiped off the face of the earth.” [5]
    LONG SUFFERING ISRAEL:
    Until the blessed day when the Gentiles are exterminated, the Zohar says, Israel must remain in a withered, blighted condition. This is because Gentiles, by the confusion they stir up in the lower levels, prevent the blessings of the Shekina in the upper levels from adequately descending upon Israel.
    Someday, however, things will be as they were meant and “man” (meaning Israel) will be given the preeminence he was created to enjoy. Then, says the Kabbalah, “man should be unique and ruler over all.” [6]
    HOW WILL “MAN” CONQUER THE WORLD?
    “Rabbi Jehuda said to him Rabbi Chezkia:
    “He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them and fight against them.”
    Rabbi Chezkia asked,
    “How must we fight against them?”
    Rabbi Jehuda said,
    “By wise counsel thou shalt war against them.” (Proverbs 24:6)
    “By what kind of war?”
    “The kind of war that every son of man must war against his enemies. Which Jacob used against Esau-by deceit and trickery wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we should free ourselves from them, and rule over them.”” [7]
    The intention of this passage is clear: world domination.
    WORLD DOMINATION:
    When Jews control the planet, Kabbalists believe, God’s power will be manifest through the Messiah.
    “The Holy One, blessed be He, will display His force, and exterminate them [Gentiles] from the world.” [8]
    In that day:
    “happy will be the lot of Israel, whom the Holy One, blessed be He, has chosen from amongst the Goyim of whom the Scriptures say: “Their work is vanity, it is an illusion at which we must laugh; they will perish when God visits them in his wrath.” At the moment when the Holy One, blessed be He, will exterminate all the Goyim of the world, Israel alone will subsist even as it is written: “The Lord alone will appear great on that day.” [9]
    Until then, the Kabbalah has a solemn mission:
    “It is certain that our captivity will last until the princes of the Gentiles who worship idols are destroyed.” [10]
    To hasten the end of Israel’s captivity, Kabbalah recommends extermination of Gentiles, not simply as a necessity, but as the highest religious duty. Zohar II explains the principles of redemption of the firstborn of an ass by offering a lamb:
    “The ass means non-Jew, who is to be redeemed by the offering of a lamb, which is the dispersed sheep of Israel. But if he refuses to be redeemed, then break his skull. They should be taken out of the book of the living.” [11]
    “In the palaces of the fourth heaven are those who lamented over Sion and Jerusalem and all those who destroyed idolatrous nations.and those who killed off people who worshipped idols are clothed in purple garments so that they may be recognized and honored.” [12]
    To the Kabbalist, even the quaint and commonplace liturgy of the synagogue has a deep, far-reaching significance:
    “The feast of tabernacles is the period when Israel triumphs over the other peoples of the world. That is why during this feast we seize the loulab and carry it as a trophy to show that we have conquered all the other people known as ‘populace’.” [13]
    KABBALAH TODAY:
    How relevant is the Kabbalah to modern Judaism?
    Although many Jews today have become so secularized that they have forgotten most of their own beliefs, as well as the literature which is supposed to uphold them, observant Jews, including Conservative, Orthodox and especially ultra-Orthodox, still consider the Kabbalah inspired by God. They believe it stands with the Talmud as the greatest legal authority of Judaism. In fact, passages from the Zohar are read along with the Bible and Talmud as part of the worship service in synagogues every Saturday.
    The Concise History of Judaism describes the Zohar as “inspired Jewish writings.” The preface to the Soncino edition of the Zohar says:
    “The Zohar appeals to many Jews in a way that makes them regard it as the most sacred of sacred books! For it mirrors Judaism as an intensely vital religion of the spirit. More overpoweringly than any other book or code, more even than the Bible, does it give to the Jew the conviction of an inner, unseen spiritual universe-an eternal moral order.” (p. 12)
    The same source continues,
    “During the present century there has been a distinct revival of interest.in Kabbalah, and eminent Jewish scholars have attempted to show that these devotees of the mystic side of Jewish life and religion were not, as is popularly supposed, half-crazy visionaries living in a universe peopled by the figments of their own degenerate brains, but men of intellect, scholarship and sound sense who aimed at bringing back to Jewish organized communal life a breath of that mystic sentiment and emotion which are the aromatic life essence of religion, and which are indispensable to Judaism if it is to continue to play its predestined part of bringing mankind “under the wings of the Shekinah.” (p. 25)
    The Kabbalah is thought to be divinely inspired by many Jews because, like the Talmud, it proceeded from the very hub of Jewry-the most eminent rabbis. Many of the greatest Talmudists, from Ben Zakki and Maimonides through the numerous Baal-shems and Talmudists of the 16th through 18th centuries, even to perhaps the greatest rabbi in the world today, Rabbi Steinsaltz of Jerusalem-all have been initiates and practitioners of Kabbalah. They take the Kabbalah very seriously, indeed, as the Word of God.
    What about the Kabbalah’s description of Gentiles as animals who must be slaughtered before “order” can be restored? That concept is not a minority opinion but fundamental to how Kabbalah structures God, Israel, and the universe. Thus, we can only assume it provides much of the motivation for the racist laws, war crimes, and homicidal agenda of the state of Israel today. After all, Orthodox, Kabbalah-venerating Judaism is the official position of the government, religious hierarchy, and military of Israel.
    KNOW YOUR “FRIENDS”:
    There is now an accelerating interest among conservatives and Christians in what the Quran teaches about “infidels.” Many are eager to discuss how the inner teachings of Islam’s most sacred literature might help explain international Arab terrorism.
    Yet, incredibly, the Evangelical Christian Right has no interest in similar investigations into the sacred, semi-secret teachings of Judaism. No one is curious about how such teachings might help explain not only Israel’s notorious mistreatment of her Arab neighbors but also Jewish power worldwide in government, finance, and media.
    This must change. Israel is in the public domain. If Israel expects America to contribute $5 billion annually, sustaining her as the world’s fourth greatest military superpower, then Jews must no longer cry “Anti-Semitism!” whenever their most sacred literature, the Talmud and Zohar, are investigated.
    If America is to keep from being pawned into even greater military and public relations disasters in the Middle East, we must have an accurate understanding of the beliefs of those we are committed to defend.
    Yes, the bombs that fell on Lebanon were made in America. But the hatred and racism behind them were MADE IN ISRAEL.

    The Soncino version of this passage, contained in Vol. 2, Vayeze 160a, says the same thing but in less pointed language. Scholars of the Hebrew and Aramaic language have translated this and other passages of the Zohar for me from the authoritative Mantuan edition of the Zohar, 16th century, which resides in the Judaic section of the Library of Congress. Their conclusion is that in the case of volatile passages the Pranaitus translations are consistently superior to the Soncino. In such passages which cannot be omitted, Soncino’s practice is to tone them down by paraphrasing or omitting them entirely.
