The MGTOW Perspective

My awakening

When I was around eleven years old, I had an epiphany that it did not make sense to have children. Perhaps it made sense in a pre-industrial society, but not in this current time. I was an anti-natalist before I even knew what that the concept was. I thought that it did not make sense to waste a huge chunk of your earnings, just so you can kick your kid out at eighteen, cast them off looking for a McJob, and see nothing come to fruition from your investment. Children, ultimately, are a liability, a money sink. Sure, your child could become a professional sports star or a Hollywood celebrity and make you rich too, but let us be realistic, the chances of that happening are so low that it is simply better to discard the notion completely. I will not take the risk that my potential child could end up at a shitty job as a wage slave and addicted to drugs, which seems all too common lately. Most of the people I come into contact with are stupid automatons, filthy in body (sexually transmitted diseases, tattoos, body modifications) and mind (liberal ideology), who, quite frankly, make me sick of the disgusting resemblance of a society we have today. Because of this, I will starve the beast of any future labor my potential children could have provided to the system.

The “New” World Order and men going their own way

I do not like the term New World Order, because the term makes it seem like it is a new development, but it has existed for a long, long time. It has existed as soon as humans were freed from doing subsistence farming, so that people could produce goods and pay taxes to the government. I have talked to grown, old men that think they can do something about the current order, but I laugh, because they have a wife, a couple kids, a car loan, and a mortgage. In actuality, they are the embodiment of the current order. If you have a wife, you are a slave to your wife’s wishes and you proverbially have a gun to your head. If you have a couple kids, you are a slave for at least eighteen years of your life, plus more, if they want to go to university/college. You can also say goodbye to at least half a million of your hard earned cash for the kids. With a car loan, you are enriching and enslaved by bankers and paying more for the car than it is worth; the same thing for the house. If you cannot readily walk away from anything in your life in thirty seconds flat, you are a slave.

I personally know a man who goes his own way, with over a million dollars in his bank account, a payed off house, and who was retired by his early forties. He never went to post-secondary, either, and worked a blue collar job his whole life. He lives an amazing, stress free life. He told me to never get married when I was in my late adolescence. Many other men that took the plunge, did the whole marriage and kids thing, told me to never get married. I listened and observed, and my gut instincts from my early childhood cemented my worldview today.

Marriage, children

I have a complete aversion to having kids. So, I have logically concluded that becoming chaste is the best course of action in order to mitigate the aforementioned risks. This step is very hard for men, because they are driven by hormonal and biological urges to reproduce. This hypersexualization of men is conveyed through the mainstream media, and pornography, which is obviously produced to highlight and augment the primal desires of men, and keep them in a lower state of consciousness.

However, I am not so naive to think that all men can go all out Shaolin monk, quite the contrary. I realize it takes a certain caliber of man to give up intimate relations with women, and it takes a man with a low libido and a certain amount of intelligence to overcome biology. In fact, some of the greatest men to ever live rejected women, such as Arthur Schopenhauer and Sir Isaac Newton, to name a few. To those men who cannot abstain, I recommend The Sixteen Commandments of Poon.

I have also discerned that, today, marriage is also a scam, simply because of common law concerning co-habitation, no-fault divorce, and general women’s behaviors that I have observed throughout my daily life. I cannot simply trust that any future partner I might have may will not purposely decide to get pregnant. Even if I get a vasectomy, my prospective wife could still leave my ass on a whim and I would still have to pay alimony. You do know that you pay alimony for her, not the kids, right?

Western society is garbage

The cold hard truth is that the people having the most children in Western society are mostly the bottom of the rung; I like to call them breeders. Single mothers are included in this group, of course. The single mothers mostly come from already broken homes themselves, they took every man’s dick from around town too many times and ended up with some alpha douche bag’s kid, and do not usually know who the father is. We, as a society, pay taxes for these irresponsible and stupid mothers, who are living off the nanny state’s tit. Like it or not, you are subsidizing women’s shitty behaviors in order to act like harlots, use men as sperm donors, and steal their labor in the form of child support, all thanks to feminist doctrine allowing them to do so. These breeders are churning out the next generation of kids that will be destined to work at McDonalds or worse. Kids raised on a television that will never have a thought of their own. Classless, mindless, fornicating thugs that repeat the cycle over again, like water swishing in a toilet bowl.

Sadly, to me, anyways, most people are stupid dupes, raising the next generation to just be exploited in the workplace, directly into the wood chipper, and possibly forging, at the same time, a path of sadness and despair for your potential child. All that hard work for nothing in return; you cannot even expect that your child will take care of you in your old age, which is the primary reason couples had children in traditional, agrarian societies. I will blow my brains out before I develop Alzheimer’s, then shortly after get shipped off to a retirement home and become forgotten about, sitting alone in a medically induced stupor, numb to the world, where some Filipino lady changes my soiled diaper due to my inability to properly function as a human being. I am sorry, folks, but that is not my definite of a dignified life, or even a life worth living.

On a different note, perhaps we need those breeders, who will create the next generation of proles that will need to scrub our toilets and serve us our fast food. But not me. I owe society fuck all. The commonly held ideas of having kids in order to fulfill one’s legacy, while concurrently fulfilling one’s obligation to society, is passé, and, quite frankly, narcissistic. I will not bust my ass for a child, because I want to guarantee my own wellbeing, and while not having a child is not a surefire way to having a happy, successful life, it is always the safer option.

Today, if you are working or middle-class, it simply does not make financial sense to have kids. Period. I recommend this short podcast by Stefan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio, who puts it more succinctly with his podcast: Why Men Don’t Want to Have Kids.

This is a world of greed, corruption, and exploitation, not a world of daisies and daffodils. Face it and accept it. The best course of action is to not play the game.

My message to not play the game manifests itself in the form of focusing on the individual on the micro-level, without regard to the greater society, because I believe that grand scale change to better society in any way, shape, or form is not possible. My solution is anti-social and bordering on the ideology of ethical egoism, but, then again, Western society is based on that, so why not harness that perspective in order to help yourself? The only thing definite in your life is the fact that you exist, right here, in the now, and the only thing that you should worry about is how you are going to guarantee that you are going to have a comfortable life, with as little pain and hardship as possible. In other words, you need to save yourself at all costs. You should not concern yourself with what you think is your moral responsibility to society, because that is being a follower, not a leader. I care about you, right now, as you are. What are you going to do?

Men going their own way do not comprise a movement, it is an individual act of defiance against the system in the form of a lifestyle and mindset

Men going their own way are getting a lot of flack from mainstream society, due to misunderstanding the concept and what it actually stands for. In actuality, men going their own way are not an organized group, they are all more or less doing the same thing by living on the fringe of society and rejecting mainstream culture and ideals. Men going their own way reject the notion that a man’s worth is solely based on his ability to get women, whereas mainstream society views these men who are opting out of marriage and children as losers, but upon further examination, we can see that this is just a shaming tactic. Men going their own way are shamed due to the tyranny of the majority in our society that are going along with the “program”, so to speak. In other words, it is just society’s confirmation bias of people who have bought into our fraudulent system called Western society. Simply put, it all boils down to social conditioning and repeating the same cultural memes over and over.

The men who went their own way of past’s progeny are not here, they mostly did not reproduce, and their genetics have permanently checked out of the world. Look around you, the people you see are descendants of people who have all reproduced. It is only logical that men who go their own way will be ostracized from the dominant majority. The question you will have to ask yourself is this: will I break the cycle, or will I not question the status-quo and go along with the social script?

And, really, at the end of the day, I wonder if the majority of people in mainstream society practice introspection with regards to these issues, or are they so hive-minded that they just need to have what apparently everyone else wants without questioning anything at all. Personally, I used to emotionally beat myself, simply because I had not been able to land a girlfriend after a couple of years, thinking that I was an incomplete non-person, because I was not having regular intimate sessions with women, subsequently not living up to my full psychological potential and not being as happy as I could be if I were with a woman. I thought that I was lower functioning being because of it, but it is not so. I realized that our hypersexualization of Western culture and allure of the hook-up scene that I strived to become a part of was just a false panacea and cover-up for the true reality of this world. The truth is, is that sex is nothing special; billions of people do it regularly and produce children that are brought into this fucked up world. There is more to this world than sex, it is the lowest common denominator, it is not special or something to really be held in high esteem, because any idiot can stick his dick in a vagina, it is no accomplishment. This is what separates humans from other animals, who just fornicate in concordance with their instincts. Break from your biological shackles, and see reality for what it really is. Take the red pill, so to speak.

This paradigm puts men into two different camps, the animalistic breeders, who are living off of welfare, without a decent job and the means for raising their many kids properly; and the men who go their own way, who realize that having kids may not be the best financial decision, because of the less than inviting, hostile conditions they exist in, especially in the West. Are these people smarter, or more aware of the world around them? You decide.

But, make no doubt about it, the working and middle-class are favored by the breeders, who pump out many more children than people who actually plan for the future and want to live a rational, balanced life. Men who go their own way realize that marriage and the inevitable children that arise from a marriage are a big liability that strangle all the joy out of life, and that the stereotypical lifestyle of a house, wife, and kids subjects him to a life of servitude to the state and to his wife.

Concluding thoughts

It must be mentioned that, again, men who go their way are not a disgruntled group who cannot achieve success with women, those are called involuntary celibates, and they are not included in the scope of this discussion. Men who go their own way see reality for what it is, and they do not play the game that is rigged against them from the start.

Almost all success achieved in this world is for access to women. Women are not exploited creatures, which is why feminism is a big pile of shit; they are the end goal that men strive for, and men put everything on the line for women and their future offspring that they create.

Will you break the cycle, go your own way and define life on your own terms, or are you just going to be a compliant, little slave?

The choice is yours.

Plot Twist: I Will Be Becoming a Freemason

As the old saying goes: if you can’t beat them, join them.

That is what I told my friend, a Sephardic Jew, whose family is also comprised of Masons, some of which are part of the Fortune 500 companies and the oil industry in Alberta. This person is the “eyes wide shut” type. He sees that the game is rigged for the “small people”, but does not want to admit it. His extended family became millionaires in Argentina by price-fixing the cost of a certain produce (I cannot remember which) during the financial crises of the nineteen nineties. Of course he does not see the obvious ethical problems with his family’s ill gotten gains, the man is upper-middle class and has never faced real adversity in his life.

Even as I created this site, I knew in the back of my mind that I would like to join the “dark side”, so to speak. Even in my attempts to spread truth, I would be openly hypocritical by saying that I would join Freemasonry in a heartbeat. I can, and do, live my life as a righteous person, but if I have to do some questionable things in the future, that is fine, because I did not make the rules. At the end of the day, this is about survival, and I want to be on top. If that means engaging in Alistair Crowley’s concept of sex magick, whatever it exactly is, then so be it.

I believe, as a man, that we all have to offer something in this world in order to build upon its previous faculties of knowledge. It does not have to necessarily be economic in nature. My artistic drive that I had during my early childhood has been mostly killed due to formalized schooling, and now all I can offer to the world is my writings, which were definitely not my strong point growing up. A lot of my writing deficiencies stemmed from being too timid and too afraid to speak my mind. Now, it seems I have developed a small following of readers that are/were actively checking this site out. One poster asked why I had not created new content in over a year.

My answer to that is that I had nothing new to say and had not been learning anything new. Only when I decided that I am willing to join Freemasonry did a new topic for writing emerge. I told my father that I am really in the mindset of a Jew and I am ready to be accepted as their brethren, my father said: “Why didn’t you ask sooner? Mr. Freemason has been trying to recruit me relentlessly over the years! He would gladly accept you!”

And there you have it. The whole purpose of this site and the ideology I have been against is apparently ready to take me with open arms, and I am ready to be accepted by them.

My message to my future Masonic brethren:

Do not worry about me trying to infiltrate the Brotherhood. I know in your inevitable intelligence gathering concerning me, that you may stumble upon this website of mine. Rest assured that this website will not make any difference to the condition of the world. It could even be said that blogs such as this are counterproductive to the main message, because it gives a perspective of the “other side”, and the individual can then use this information to act or think like the ones who really pull the strings beneath the surface.

A Farewell and Response to J3133


It appears that you are no longer going to be posting on your blog.

I agree with most of your assertions. I have also taken a bow out of this conspiracy realm, which is filled with sayanim infiltrators, psychos, Christian Identity religious nuts, and charlatans that have infiltrated by blog since my absence and drained me of my mental energy. The gold to garbage ratio was too low, so the comments have been disabled. I now understand why people like Kevin MacDonald disable comments on their website; it totally detracts from the content that is posted, and these sensitive topics result in comment sections that are heavily polluted by the aforementioned groups.

You say most people are of a very low quality and I agree with you, even though I would not go as far and call myself an Übermensch. A person is smart, people are dumb, no? I must admit, as I started reading a lot of the Talmud, I started to think somewhat like a Jew and shared the Jews’ hatred of gentiles and humanity as a whole, possibly because I am of Ashkenazic/Dönme and German ancestry. I do not look Jewish by the way, but my grandparents, aunties, and some of my cousins look Ashkenazic. And let’s face it, we can holler until the cows come home about how much Jews are assholes to others based on their behavior, but they do not fuck over their own. That is something to be revered, and no amount of Bible and Talmud quoting will cover the fact that this ideology works for success in the world, as bad as it is. My own shitty Dönme family have embezzled and stolen tens of thousands of dollars from my father. I doubt a real, tight-knit, Orthodox Jewish family would do that to one another. Their thinking process is: We are special; we are the Chosen Ones. We do not do that shit to one another, we do that to people that are lesser than us. And that is fine. Try explaining that logic to a devout, Gospel thumping Christian.

I observe, from a distance, the toilet culture we have in the West, and I see gentiles basking in its shittyness; they love it, they eat it up! Well, fuck them and the simpleton “friends” I knew. Before I really got knee deep into this whole excursion, I had an extremely positive outlook on the future, the world’s potential, and the belief that I could make a positive impact on the world. Not so much now.

As a result of discovering many of the inconvenient truths, I’ve changed my outlook on life and learned a lot about myself in the process. Sorry to say this, but I’ve lost my faith in humanity.

I have also been lurking around the popular MGTOW and MRM websites for the last while, and now I am full-leveled MGTOW. Now, I am chaste, and ghosting in society a la John Galt from Atlas Shrugged.

We seem to have had a similar path in life, with both of us coming to very similar realizations. I don’t befriend people easily, but I think you are some one who could be a great person to discuss philosophy and history with.

I also read your comments about Reddit and censorship. Turns out one of my accounts got banned from the conspiratard subreddit. I firmly believe that Reddit is part of the censorship matrix as well. I do not even know if the people I have interacted with on Reddit are bots or shills, now that one of my accounts was shadowbanned. I guess it is a shock to see how far down the rabbit hole goes. Same for Facebook, obviously, but I think the level of censorship is even worse there.

Which brings me to my last main point, that trying to make up the “masses” is a futile effort. And you have written extensively on this subject, so any succinct statements I add to that would just be redundant. I think we just have to come to accept that the world is shitty, will always be shitty, and find our own niche out there. You said you will not have kids until the world is a place you envisioned, a place of beauty, and neither will I.

Also, I came to realization that the Internet will never be a platform for enacting social and political change. That is because the cabal, the upper triangle, controls it and owns it. I even predict that net-neutrality will completely disappear sometime in the future, and you can say bye-bye to a blog like this. People like you, Zander C. Fuerza, or any other person with a blog or website that is trying to be influential in social and political matters will be squashed like a bug before you get your wheels rolling. That is why I look at what I do as a hobby. Another thing that bugs me is that it appears that this blog is compromised, I come back after a couple days and I see some spelling and formatting errors that were not previously there. It could be my browser, but I doubt it.

I think we need to set realistic goals for ourselves. Out of the twenty thousand visitors to this site, even if only ten percent saw things in a different light and it enhanced their life, then my work is done. You, like I am, to a certain a degree, are a visionary with an unrelenting passion to do what you do. That is something special, I think. It is too easy to fall into a Cartesian rut and question the authenticity of all the information we read on the Internet, and a lot of the times I do, but I also trust my instincts. We do not have access to first hand information, no field reports, and must make many conclusions based on inductive reasoning. I also am very weary of anything out there pertaining to esoteric knowledge and gnostics, specifically.

After all, we are “small people” and do not have much influence in the grand scheme of things, and you are right when you say that the world is spearheaded by elite Jewry doing bad things to lesser Jews. That statement did not sit right with me when I first heard it, but I know it is true. I know a Turkish Jew that is a Shriner/Freemason being groomed to be a master Mason, but that’s as close to the “Illuminati” as I get, and I would not dare even ask him about what he does and learns at the lodge.

And besides, my family is alright financially and I think we will do okay. Like you said, you got to be in the Jewish mindset and view this as all a game, and you need to do what you need to do.

Take care.

Israel Shahak: The Laws against Non-Jews in Two Minutes

A Jew who murders a Gentile is guilty only of a sin against the laws of Heaven, not punishable by a court. To cause indirectly the death of a Gentile is no sin at all.

Thus, one of the two most important commentators on the Shulhan ‘Arukh explains that when it comes to a Gentile, “one must not lift one’s hand to harm him, but one may harm him indirectly, for instance by removing a ladder after he had fallen into a crevice [...] there is no prohibition here, because it was not done directly.” He points out, however, that an act leading indirectly to a Gentile’s death is forbidden if it may cause the spread of hostility towards Jews.

A Gentile murderer who happens to be under Jewish jurisdiction must be executed whether the victim was Jewish or not. However, if the victim was Gentile and the murderer converts to Judaism, he is not punished.

When our forces come across civilians during a war or in hot pursuit or in a raid, so long as there is no certainty that those civilians are incapable of harming our forces, then according to the Halakhah they may and even should be killed […] Under no circumstances should an Arab be trusted, even if he makes an impression of being civilized […] In war, when our forces storm the enemy, they are allowed and even enjoined by the Halakhah to kill even good civilians, that is, civilians who are ostensibly good.

Rabbi Shim’on used to say: “The best of Gentiles – kill him; the best of snakes dash out its brains.”

As for Gentiles, the basic Talmudic principle is that their lives must not be saved, although it is also forbidden to murder them outright. The Talmud itself expresses this in the maxim: “Gentiles are neither to be lifted [out of a well] nor hauled down [into it].” Maimonides explains:

“As for Gentiles with whom we are not at war […] their death must not be caused, but it is forbidden to save them if they are at the point of death; if, for example, one of them is seen falling into the sea, he should not be rescued, for it is written: ‘neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy fellow’ – but [a Gentile] is not thy fellow.”

In particular, a Jewish doctor must not treat a Gentile patient. Maimonides – himself an illustrious physician – is quite explicit on this; in another passage he repeats the distinction between “thy fellow” and a Gentile, and concludes: “and from this learn ye, that it is forbidden to heal a Gentile even for a payment [...]“

However, the refusal of a Jew – particularly a Jewish doctor – to save the life of a Gentile may, if it becomes known, antagonize powerful Gentiles and so put Jews in danger. Where such danger exists, the obligation to avert it supersedes the ban on helping the Gentile. Thus Maimonides continues: “[…] but if you fear him or his hostility, cure him for payment, though you are forbidden to do so without payment.”

The whole doctrine – the ban on saving a Gentile’s life or healing him, and the suspension of this ban in cases where there is fear of hostility – is repeated (virtually verbatim) by other major authorities, including the 14th century Arba’ah Turirn and Karo’s Beyt Yosef and Shulhan ‘Arukh.19 Beyt Yosef adds, quoting Maimonides: “And it is permissible to try out a drug on a heathen, if this serves a purpose;” and this is repeated also by the famous R. Moses Isserles.

Desecrating the Sabbath – that is, doing work that would otherwise be banned on Saturday – becomes a duty when the need to save a Jew’s life demands it.

The problem of saving a Gentile’s life on the Sabbath is not raised in the Talmud as a main issue, since it is in any case forbidden even on a weekday.

The most up-to-date Halakhic position on these matters is contained in a recent concise and authoritative book published in English under the title Jewish Medical Law. This book, which bears the imprint of the prestigious Israeli foundation Mossad Harav Kook, is based on the response of R. Eli’ezer Yehuda Waldenberg, Chief Justice of the Rabbinical District Court of Jerusalem. A few passages of this work deserve special mention.

First, “it is forbidden to desecrate the Sabbath […] for a Karaite.” This is stated bluntly, absolutely and without any further qualification. Presumably the hostility of this small sect makes no difference, so they should be allowed to die rather than be treated on the Sabbath.

As for Gentiles: “According to the ruling stated in the Talmud and Codes of Jewish law, it is forbidden to desecrate the Sabbath – whether violating Biblical or rabbinic law – in order to save the life of a dangerously ill gentile patient. It is also forbidden to deliver the baby of a gentile women on the Sabbath.”

Sexual intercourse between a married Jewish woman and any man other than her husband is a capital offense for both parties, and one of the three most heinous sins. The status of Gentile women is very different. The Halakhah presumes all Gentiles to be utterly promiscuous and the verse: “whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue [of semen] is like the issue of horses”40 is applied to them. Whether a Gentile woman is married or not makes no difference, since as far as Jews are concerned the very concept of matrimony does not apply to Gentiles (“There is no matrimony for a heathen”). Therefore, the concept of adultery also does not apply to intercourse between a Jewish man and a Gentile woman; rather, the Talmud equates such intercourse to the sin of bestiality. (For the same reason, Gentiles are generally presumed not to have certain paternity.)

This does not imply that sexual intercourse between a Jewish man and a Gentile woman is permitted – quite the contrary. But the main punishment is inflicted on the Gentile woman; she must be executed, even if she was raped by the Jew: “If a Jew has coitus with a Gentile woman, whether she be a child of three or an adult, whether married or unmarried, and even if he is a minor aged only nine years and one day – because he had willful coitus with her, she must be killed, as is the case with a beast, because through her a Jew got into trouble.” The Jew, however, must be flogged, and if he is a Kohen (member of the priestly tribe) he must receive double the number of lashes, because he has committed a double offense: a Kohen must not have intercourse with a prostitute, and all Gentile women are presumed to be prostitutes.


According to the Halakhah, Jews must not (if they can help it) allow a Gentile to be appointed to any position of authority, however small, over Jews. (The two stock examples are “command over ten soldiers in the Jewish army” and “superintendent of an irrigation ditch.”) Significantly, this particular rule applies also to converts to Judaism and to their descendants (through the female line) for ten generations or “so long as the descent is known.”

Gentiles are presumed to be congenital liars, and are disqualified from testifying in a rabbinical court. In this respect their position is, in theory, the same as that of Jewish women, slaves and minors; but in practice it is actually worse. A Jewish woman is nowadays admitted as a witness to certain matters of fact, when the rabbinical court “believes” her; a Gentile – never.

The Talmud bluntly forbids giving a gift to a Gentile […] a Jew may give a gift to a Gentile acquaintance, since this is regarded not as a true gift but as a sort of investment, for which some return is expected. Gifts to “unfamiliar Gentiles” remain forbidden.

Taking of interest. Anti-Gentile discrimination in this matter has become largely theoretical, in view of the dispensation (explained in Chapter 3) which in effect allows interest to be exacted even from a Jewish borrower. However, it is still the case that granting an interest-free loan to a Jew is recommended as an act of charity, but from a Gentile borrower it is mandatory to exact interest. In fact, many – though not all – rabbinical authorities, including Maimonides, consider it mandatory to exact as much usury as possible on a loan to a Gentile.

Lost property. If a Jew finds property whose probable owner is Jewish, the finder is strictly enjoined to make a positive effort to return his find by advertising it publicly. In contrast, the Talmud and all the early rabbinical authorities not only allow a Jewish finder to appropriate an article lost by a Gentile, but actually forbid him or her to return it.

Fraud. It is forbidden to defraud a Jew by selling or buying at an unreasonable price. However, “fraud” does not apply to Gentiles.

However, robbery of a Gentile by a Jew is not forbidden outright but only under certain circumstances such as “when the Gentiles are not under our rule,” but is permitted “when they are under our rule.”

It is therefore clear that – exactly as the leaders and sympathizers of Gush Emunim say – the whole question to how the Palestinians ought to be treated is […] simply a question of Jewish power: if Jews have sufficient power, then it is their religious duty to expel the Palestinians.

There is also a series of rules forbidding any expression of praise for Gentiles or for their deeds, except where such praise implies an even greater praise of Jews and things Jewish.

In §322, dealing with the duty to keep a Gentile slave enslaved forever (whereas a Jewish slave must be set free after seven years).

In §545, dealing with the religious obligation to exact interest on money lent to Gentiles, the law is stated as follows: “That we are commanded to demand interest from Gentiles when we lend money to them, and we must not lend to them without interest.”

In explaining the ban against delaying a worker’s wage (§238) the author is careful to point out that the sin is less serious if the worker is Gentile […] Similarly, the prohibitions against giving misleading advice, hating other people, shaming them or taking revenge on them (§§240, 245, 246, 247) apply only to fellow-Jews.

The ban against following Gentile customs (§262) means that Jews must not only “remove themselves” from Gentiles, but also “speak ill of all their behavior, even of their dress.”

Judaism is imbued with a very deep hatred towards Christianity […] In fact, it dates from the time when Christianity was still weak and persecuted (not least by Jews), and it was shared by Jews who had never been persecuted by Christians or who were even helped by them. Thus, Maimonides was subjected to Muslim persecutions by the regime of the Almohads and escaped from them first to the crusaders’ Kingdom of Jerusalem.

According to the Talmud, Jesus was executed by a proper rabbinical court for idolatry, inciting other Jews to idolatry, and contempt of rabbinical authority. All classical Jewish sources which mention his execution are quite happy to take responsibility for it; in the Talmudic account the Romans are not even mentioned.

The attitude of Judaism towards Islam is, in contrast, relatively mild. Although the stock epithet given to Muhammad is “madman” (“meshugga”), this was not nearly as offensive as it may sound now, and in any case it pales before the abusive terms applied to Jesus. Similarly, the Qur’an – unlike the New Testament – is not condemned to burning. It is not honored in the same way as Islamic law honors the Jewish sacred scrolls, but is treated as an ordinary book. Most rabbinical authorities agree that Islam is not idolatry (although some leaders of Gush Emunim now choose to ignore this). Therefore the Halakhah decrees that Muslims should not be treated by Jews any worse than ‘ordinary’ Gentiles. But also no better.

The above was taken from chapter 5 of The Laws against Non-Jews from Israel Shahak’s book Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years, which you can find here:
