Christianity and Judaism
Note: goyim means cattle, Jewish name for non-Jews.
A gentile […] is liable for the death penalty […] if he has invented a religious holiday for himself. — Maimonides (Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, Rambáni, Rambam, Moses Maimonides), Mishneh Torah
And be it known that Christian people who follow Jesus, although their teachings vary, are all worshippers of idols. — Maimonides, Abhodah Zarah Perusch 78c.
If we see an idolater (Gentile) being swept away or drowning in the river, we should not help him. If we see that his life is in danger, we should not save him. — Maimonides, Mishneh Torah (Moznaim Publishing Corporation, Brooklyn, New York, 1990, Chapter 10, English Translation, p. 184)
All the festivals of the followers of Jesus are forbidden, and we must conduct ourselves towards them as we would towards idolators. — Maimonides, Abhodah Zarah 78c, the Perusch of Maimonides, vol. 8
Do not eat with idolaters, nor permit them to worship their idols, for it is written: make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them. — Deuteronomy 7:2
Either turn them away from their idols or kill them. — Maimonides, 4 4 Hilkoth Akum X 1
In places where Jews are strong, no idolater must be allowed to remain […] — Ibidem X 7
A Gentile who engaged in Torah is punishable by death. He should not engage in anything other than their seven commandments alone. — Maimonides, The Laws of Kings, chapter 10, Halakha 9
It is a mitzvah [religious duty] to eradicate Jewish traitors, minnim, and apikorsim, and to cause them to descend to the pit of destruction, since they cause difficulty to the Jews and sway the people away from God, as did Jesus of Nazareth and his students, and Tzadok, Baithos, and their students. May the name of the wicked rot. — Maimonides, Mishneh Torah
For centuries the Sons of Israel have been despised and persecuted, but they have fought bravely to prepare the way for victory. Now they are approaching their aim. They already dominate the economic life of the damned Christians; their influence is just as great in politics and in moral fields. At the wished for hour, fixed in advance, we shall let loose the Revolution, which by ruining all classes of Christians will definitely enslave Christendom to us. Thus will be accomplished the promise of God made to his people. — From speech of Rabbi Reichhorn delivered in Prague in 1869 over the tomb of the Grand Rabbi Simeon‑ben‑Ihuda, published by the French Magazine “Libre Parole” in its issue of November 1933, page 27, and earlier “La Vielle France” issue of March 10, 1921
Our cause is great and holy, and its success is guaranteed. Catholicism, our immemorial enemy, is lying in the dust, mortally wounded in the head.
The net which Judaism is throwing over the globe of the earth is widening and spreading daily, and the momentous prophecies of our Holy Books are at least to be realized.
The time is near when Jerusalem will become the house of prayer for all nations and peoples, and the banner of Jewish monodeity will be unfurled and hoisted on the most distant shores.
Our might is immense, learn to adopt this might for our cause. What have you to be afraid of? The day is not distant when all the riches and treasures of the earth will become the property of the Jews. — Adolphe Cremieux, Founder of Alliance Israelite Universelle, The Manifesto of 1869, published in the Morning Post, September 6, 1920
Our adversaries, numerous and formidable, will say, and will have the right to say, that our Principe Créateur is identical with the Principe Générateur of the Indians and Egyptians, and may fitly be symbolized as it was symbolized anciently, by the linage. […] To accept this in lieu of a personal God is to abandon Christianity and worship of Jehovah and return to wallow in the styles of Paganism. — Albert Pike, Supreme Council of the 33rd degree, New York, August 15, 1876
Judaism was not a religion but a law. — Moses Mendelssohn, The Jewish Plato
The great ideal of Judaism is that the whole world shall be imbued with Jewish teachings, and that in a Universal Brotherhood of nations – a greater Judaism in fact – all the separate races and religions shall disappear. — Jewish World, February 9, 1883
The Christians are always singing about the blood. Let us give them enough of it! Let us cut their throats and drag them over the altar! And let them drown in their own blood! I dream of the day when the last priest is strangled on the guts of the last preacher. — Gus Hall, Jewish Chairman of the American Communist Party
The best among the Gentiles deserves to be killed. — Jewish religious text quoted in ‘Gentile’ The Jewish Encyclopedia Volume 5, Funk and Wagnalls Company, New York, 1903, pp. 615-626, at 617
The Jewish teaching must cover the whole earth. No matter where fate should lead, through scattered all over the earth, you must always consider yourselves members of a Chosen Race.
[…] If you realize that the faith of your Fathers is your only patriotism, if you recognize that, notwithstanding the nationalities you have embraced, you always remain and everywhere form one and only nation, if you believe that Jewry only is the one and only religious and political truth, if you are convinced of this, you, Jews of the Universe, then come and give ear to our appeal and prove to us your consent.
[…] Israel won the war (WWI); we made it; we thrived on it; we profited from it. It was our supreme revenge on Christianity. — The Jewish Ambassador from Austria to London, Count Mensdorf, 1918
Fundamentally Judaism is anti-Christian. — The Jewish World, March 15, 1923, Waters Flowing Eastward, p. 108
If you really are serious when you talk of Jewish plots, may I not direct your attention to one worth talking about? What use is it wasting words on the alleged control of your public opinion by Jewish financiers, newspaper owners and movie magnates, when you might as well justly accuse us of the proved control of your whole civilization by the Jewish Gospels? — A Real Case Against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part I, The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 3
You make much noise and fury about the undue Jewish influence in your theaters and movie palaces. Very good; granted your complaint is well-founded. But what is that compared to our staggering influence in your churches, your schools, your laws and your governments, and the very thoughts you think every day? — A Real Case Against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part I, ’The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda’, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 3
A Jewish maiden is your ideal of motherhood and womanhood. A Jewish rebel-prophet is the central figure in your religious worship. We have pulled down your idols, cast aside you racial inheritance, and substituted for them our God and our traditions. No conquest in history can even remotely compare with this clean sweep of our conquest over you. — A Real Case Against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part I, ’The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda’, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 3
In full, of course, you never have accepted our Christian teachings. In your hearts you are still pagans. — A Real Case Against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part I, ’The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda’, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 3
It is unbelievable, but you Christians do not seem to know where your religion came from, nor how, nor why. — A Real Case against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part II, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 4
Your historians, with one great exception, do not tell you. The documents in the case, which are part of your Bible, you chant over but do not read. We have done our work too thoroughly; you believe our propaganda too implicitly. — A Real Case against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part II, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 4
The great ideal of Judaism is that the whole world shall be imbued with Jewish teachings, and that in a Universal Brotherhood of Nations–a greater Judaism in fact–all the separate races and religions shall disappear. — Jewish World, February 9, 1933
We have induced some of our children to join the Christian Body, with the explicit intimation that they should work in a still more efficient way for the disintegration of the Christian Church, by creating scandals within her. We have thus followed the advice of our Prince of the Jews, who so wisely said:
‘Let some of your children become cannons, so that they may destroy the Church.’ Unfortunately, not all among the ‘convert’ Jews have proved faithful to their mission. Many of them have even betrayed us! But, on the other hand, others have kept their promise and honored their word. Thus the counsel of our Elders has proved successful.
[…] We are the Fathers of all Revolutions, even of those which sometimes happen to turn against us. We are the supreme Masters of Peace and War. We can boast of being the Creators of the Reformation! Calvin (Phillip II, by William Thomas Walsh, p. 248: ‘The origin of Calvin (whose real name was Chauvin, see also: Lucin Wolf, in Transactions, Jewish Historical Society of England, Vol. XI, p. 8; Goris, Les Colonies Marchandes Meridionales à Anvers; Lea, History of the Inquisition of Spain, III, 413) was one of our Children; he was of Jewish descent, and was entrusted by Jewish authority and encouraged with Jewish finance to draft his scheme in the Reformation. […]
Martin Luther yielded to the influence of his Jewish friends unknowingly, and again, by Jewish authority, and with Jewish finance, his plot against the Catholic Church met with success. But unfortunately he discovered the deception, and became a threat to us, so we disposed of him as we have so many others who dare to oppose us. […]
Many countries, including the United States have already fallen for our scheming. But the Christian Church is still alive […] We must destroy it without the least delay and without the slightest mercy.
Most of the Press in the world is under our Control; let us therefore encourage in a still more violent way the hatred of the world against the Christian Church. Let us intensify our activities in poisoning the morality of the Gentiles.
Let us spread the spirit of revolution in the minds of the people. They must be made to despise Patriotism and the love of their family, to consider their faith as a humbug, their obedience to their Christ as a degrading servility, so that they become deaf to the appeal of the Church and blind to her warnings against us.
Let us, above all, make it impossible for Christians to be reunited, or for non-Christians to join the Church; otherwise the greatest obstruction to our domination will be strengthened and all our work undone. Our plot will be unveiled, the Gentiles will turn against us, in the spirit of revenge, and our domination over them will never be realized. […]
Let us remember that as long as there still remain active enemies of the Christian Church, we may hope to become Master of the World. And let us remember always that the future Jewish King will never reign in the world before Christianity is overthrown […] — From a series of speeches at the B’nai B’rith Convention in Paris, published shortly afterwards in the London Catholic Gazette, February, 1936; Paris Le Reveil du Peuple published similar account a little later
The Jew is necessarily anti-Christian, by definition, in being a Jew, just as he is anti-Mohammedan, just as he is opposed to every principle which is not his own. Now that the Jew has entered into society, he has become a source of disorder, and, like the mole, he is busily engaged in undermining the ancient foundations upon which rests the Christian State.
And this accounts for the decline of nations, and their intellectual and moral decadence; they are like a human body which suffers from the intrusion of some foreign element which it cannot assimilate and the presence of which brings on convulsions and lasting disease.
By his very presence the Jew acts as a solvent; he produces disorders, he destroys, he brings on the most fearful catastrophes. — Benard Lazare, Antisemitism, Its History and Causes, p. 318-320
The admission of the Jew into the body of the nations has proved fatal to them; they are doomed for having received him […] The entrance of the Jew into society marked the destruction of the State, meaning by State, the Christian State. — Benard Lazare, Antisemitism, Its History and Causes, p. 328
The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianizing, he Judaizes, he destroys Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference, but he imposes his idea of the world, or morals, and of life upon those whose faith he ruins; he works at his age-old task, the annihilation of the religion of Christ. — Bernard Lazare in L’Anti-Semitism, p. 350
What is the basis of Judaism? A practical passion and greed for profit. To what can we reduce his (the Jew’s) religious worship? To extortion. What is his real God? Cash! — Karl Marx, founder of Communism, quoted in the British Guardian, July-August, 1924
There is no such thing as a Judeo-Christian religion. We consider the two religions so different that one excludes the other. — Rabbi Moshe Maggal of the National Jewish Information Service, 1961
The thought of creating the Jewish People preceded every other thought of the Almighty when creating the Universe. — Teaching of Rabbi Samuel Bar Isaac, Bereshith Rabba 1,5
The Talmud is the real ‘bible’ of the Jews and that it supersedes the Old Testament. This volume has been condemned down through the ages for preaching hatred for Christ and all Christians. — The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia
It is useless to insist upon the differences which proceed from this opposition between the two different views in the respective attitudes of the pious Jew and the pious Christian regarding the acquisition of wealth.
While the pious Christian, who had been guilty of usury, was tormented on his death‑bed by the tortures of repentance and was ready to give up all that he owned, for the possessions unjustly acquired were scorching his soul, the pious Jews, at the end of his days looked with affection upon his coffers and chests filled to the top with the accumulated sequins taken during his long life from poor Christians and even from poor Moslems; a sight which could cause his impious heart to rejoice, for every penny of interest enclosed therein was like a sacrifice offered to his God. — Wierner Sombart, Les Juifs et la Vie Economique, p. 286; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon De Poncins, p. 164
The inward thought of Moscow (the Jews) indeed appears to be that for twenty centuries while humanity has been following Christ, it has been on the wrong word.
It is now high time to correct this error of direction by creating a new moral code, a new civilization, founded on quite different principles (Talmudic Principles).
And it appears that it is this idea which the communist leaders wished to symbolize when a few months ago they proposed to erect in Moscow a Statue to Judas Iscariot, to Judas, this great honest misunderstood man, who hanged himself, not at all, as it is usually and foolishly believed, because of remorse for having sold his master, but because of despair, poor man, at the thought that humanity would pay for by innumerable misfortunes the wrong path which it was about to follow. — J. and J. Tharaud, Causerie sur Israel, p. 38; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon De Poncins, pp. 143‑144
The modern Jew is the product of the Talmud. — Michael Rodkinson, in preface of the Babylonian Talmud, p. 11
The Western mind is incapable of thinking religiously. — Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 185
God is absorbed in the nationalism of Israel. — Rabbi Solomon Goldman, God and Israel
The Jew is the living God, God incarnate: he is the heavenly man. The other men [non-Jews] are earthly, of inferior race. They exist only to serve the Jew. [as God]. They [non-Jews] are the cattle seed. — Jewish divinity explained in the Kabbalah
Thus the whole people Israel in the form of the elect of the nation gradually became the Messiah of the world, the redeemer of mankind. — Joseph Klausner, The Messianic Idea in Israel
When a male Jew is called to the Torah, he recites the traditional blessing, ‘asher bahar banu mi’kol ha’amim’, praising God ‘who has chosen us from among all other nations.’
When Jews recite their daily morning prayer they say the benediction, ‘she’lo assani goy’, thanking God ‘that he has not made [us] gentiles.’
When they pronounce the benediction over the Sabbath [Saturday] wine, they declare that God has chosen and sanctified Jews from all other peoples in the same way which he has distinguished between Sabbath and weekday.
When Jews make Havdalah on Saturday night, they recite the traditional ‘ha-mavdil’, glorifying God for setting Jews apart from all other peoples just as He set apart the sacred from the profane and light from darkness. — Jewish author Alfred Jospe, JOSPE, p. 10-11
[…] the Jewish form of prayer differs both in heart and in outline from any other species of prayer in the world. The difference is the difference between one approach to God and another.
Mohammedans and Christians humble themselves before their deities. The Christian in church. The Mohammedan wherever he may happen to be when the muezzin announces the hour of prayer.
The Jew has everything very carefully arranged. God belongs in the synagogue. He, the Jew, belongs in the marketplace.
God has only one business. It is to look after the prosperity of Israel. The Jew walks briskly into his synagogue three times a day, at set hours, to remind God of this important business. — Samuel Roth, in his book ‘Jews Must Live’
We belong to the One mastering God: you belong to the republic of playful gods. — Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, p. 36
[…] a fulfillment of a number of commands of Jewish religious law […] Among Goldstein’s good deeds, as enumerated, are […] taking revenge on non-Jews, extermination of the non-Jews who are from the seed of Amalek […] and the sanctification of the Holy Name. — Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, head of the Kever Yossev Yeshiva (school of Talmud) in Nablus, in praise of the infamous machine-gunning to death of 40 Palestinian worshippers by Baruch Goldstein
The dogmatic exclusiveness professed by Christianity must finally end. […] It is the obstinate Christian claim to be the sole heir to Israel which propagates anti-Semitism.
This scandal must terminate sooner or later; the sooner it goes, the sooner the world will be rid of the issue of lies in which anti-Semitism shrouds itself. — Joshua Jehouda, l’Antisemitisme Miroir du Monde, pp. 135-136; Judaism and the Vatican, Vicomte Leon de Poncins, p. 30-31
The Jew […] is not content merely to destroy Christianity, but he preaches the gospel of Judaism; he not only assails the Catholic or the Protestant faith, but he incites to the unbelief, and then imposes on those whose faith he has undermined his own conception of the world, of morality and of life. He is engaged in his historic mission, the annihilation of the religion of Christ. — Benard Lazare, Antisemitism: Its History and Causes, Translated by Britons Publishing Co., London, 1967, p. 158
Other translation: The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianizing, he Judiazizes, he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference but he imposes his idea of the world of morals and of life upon those whose faith he ruins. He works at his age old task, the annihilation of the religion of Christ. — Benard Lazare, L’Antisemitism, p. 350; Rabbi Benamozegh, quoted in J. Creagh Scott’s Hidden Government, p. 58
Our Jewishness is not a creed, it is our self, our totality. Indeed, it may be fairly said that the surest evidence of your lack of seriousness in religion is the fact that your religions are not national, that you are not compromised and dedicated, en masse, to the faith. — Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, p. 73
In the heart of any pious Jew, God is a Jew. Is your God an Englishman or an American? — Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, p. 75
Why should we believe in God? We hate Christianity and Christians. Even the best of them must be regarded as our worst enemies. They preach love of one’s neighbor, and pity, which is contrary to our principles. Christian love is a hindrance to the revolution.
Down with love of one’s neighbor; what we want is hatred. We must know how to hate, for only at this price can we conquer the universe […] The fight should also be developed in the Moslem and Catholic countries, with the same ends in view and by the same means. — Lunatcharski, The Jewish Assault on Christianity, Gerald B. Winrod, p. 44
Christianity, therefore is unhistoric and unmoral. — Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 121
The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs, or ceremonies we observe-whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, or merely spasmodic sentimentalists-we follow the Talmud. It is our common law. — Herman Wouk, This is My God
The time will come when all Christians will become mature, they will all embrace Judaism, and they will all justify themselves by deeds. Then the Christians will become Jews. — Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 174
Today the Gentile Christians who claim of holy right have been led in the wrong path. We, of the Jewish Faith have tried for centuries to teach the Gentiles a Christ never existed, and that the story of the Virgin and of Christ is, and always has been, a fictitious lie.
In the near future, when the Jewish people take over the rule of the United States, legally under our god, we will create a new education system, providing that our god is the only one to follow, and proving that the Christ story is a fake […] Christianity will be abolished. — M.A. Levy, Secretary of the World League of Liberal Jews, in a speech in Los Angeles, California, August, 1949
Judaism, which was destroyed politically (as a result of the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D.), went forth into the great world. It adapted its possessions to its wanderings. I once compared it to an army going to war, a ‘movable State.’ […]
The argument is that Judaism, by penetrating among the Gentiles (in Christians guise or otherwise), has gradually undermined the remnants of paganism. Such penetration has not been without deliberate Jewish conniving in the shape of assistance bestowed in a thousand ways, devices and disguises.
It has been affected in great measure by crypto-Jews, who have permeated Christianity and spoken through the mouth of Christianity. — N.H. Bialik, in an address delivered at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, May 11, 1933, which appeared in Lines of Communication, Palestine, July, 1933
As to dialogue in the purely theological sense, nothing could be more fruitless or pointless. Judaism is Judaism because it rejects Christianity; and Christianity is Christianity because it rejects Judaism.
What is usually referred to as the Jewish- Christian traditions exists only in Christian or Secularist Fantasy. — Rabbi Eliezar Berkowitz, chairman of the department of Jewish philosophy at the Hebrew Theological College, in the author-initiative religious journal, Judaism, Winter, 1966
This is not an uncommon impression and one finds it sometimes among Jews as well as Christians; that Judaism is the religion of the Hebrew Bible. It is, of course, a fallacious impression. Judaism is not the religion of the Bible. — Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser, in ‘Judaism and the Christian Predicament’, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967, p. 59
I am devoting my lecture in this seminar to a discussion of the possibility that we are now entering a Jewish century, a time when the spirit of the community, the non‑ideological blend of the emotional and rational and the resistance to categories and forms will emerge through the forces of anti‑nationalism to provide us with a new kind of society.
I call this process the Judaization of Christianity because Christianity will be the vehicle through which this society becomes Jewish. — Rabbi Martin Siegel, New York Magazine, January 18, 1972, p. 32
We Jews continue to be amazed with the ease by which Christian Americans have fallen into our hands. While the naive Americans wait for Khrushchev to bury them, we have taught them to submit to our every demand. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
Our life is of this world only and our mentality is as foreign to the true spirits of Christianity as our character was to the Founder of this new creed 2,000 years ago.
The Founder of Christianity made no secret of his estimation of the Jews and the fact that he was not one of us.
When he found it necessary he drove us out of the temple of God, because then, as always, we used religion as a means of advancing our commercial interest. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
With our control of the text book industry and the news media, we have been able to hold ourselves up as the authorities on religion.
Many of our rabbis now hold professorships in supposed Christian theological seminaries. We are amazed by the Christians’ stupidity in receiving our teachings and propagating them as their own. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
Judaism is not only the teaching of the synagogue, but also the doctrine of every ‘Christian Church’ in America.
Through our propaganda the Church has become our most avid supporter.
This has even given us a special place in society, their believing the lie that we are the ‘chosen people’ and they, gentiles. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
These deluded children of the Church defend us to the point of destroying their own culture. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
Through our influence of religion we were able to involve the ignorant white Christians in war against themselves which always impoverished both sides while we reaped a financial and political harvest.
Anytime truth comes forth which exposes us, we simply rally our forces — the ignorant Christians. They attack the crusaders even if they are members of their own families. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
Niggers will do anything for money. So, when the time comes — and you might even live to see it — we will have that complete control while you stupid Christians are waiting for your Christ, the impostor, to return as your savior. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
We have it sewed up! We have infected your churches completely and we now control the school system in the United States. It is a reality that we have complete control of organized Christianity. Almost anywhere — completely. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
You know we laugh about the six million story, just like the story that Christ was a Jew and the God’s Chosen People story. This should show people that we have a solidarity like none other in the world. Jews have a closeness to other Jews whom they have never seen or perhaps even heard of. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
The Jewish scholars of the mid-nineteenth century realized that the Church could now be attacked without fear of retaliation. Its power had faded, and its influence was constantly diminishing.
The decline of Christianity was a hopeful sign. Jewish scholars saw it as beneficial for Judaism and mankind, for they believed that Judaism or a new religion akin to it would eventually become dominant.
Although this optimism is gone, the weakening of Christianity is still welcomed by many contemporary Jews. — Jacob W., 1974, p. 230
It was not anti-German to oppose Nazism, nor anti-Russian to oppose Bolshevism. It is not anti-Semitic to oppose the forces within the Jewish community which are waging war against you and your family. — Jewish writer Kenneth M. Mitzner, encouraging Christians to oppose those Jewish forces that are corrupting the morals of the nation and the people, The Wanderer, June 29, 1989
Jewish deconstructive attack upon the Christian world view may be noted more recently in an incident in 1994 when the preeminent Jewish American ‘defense agency’, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, turned on the conservative Christian community with venom, publishing a report entitled: The Religious Right: the Assault on Tolerance and Pluralism in America. A rare voice of reason in the Jewish community, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, noted publications by both the ADL and the American Jewish Committee (for example, its The Political Activity of the Religious Right: A Critical Analysis) that defamed the Christian community, writing:
[The ADL] published a book filled with unfair and untrue defamation of religious conservatives. It contained such unrestrained invective as, ‘The Religious Right brings to the debate over moral and social issues a rhetoric of fear, suspicion and even hatred.’
As a rabbi and a Jew, I was embarrassed at the tone of both of these books. Had any Christian association published anything comparable about the Jewish community, cries of anti-Semitism would have rung out far and wide –and been justified (Lapin, D., 1999, p. 40)
[…] Even a quick glance at publications and direct-mail appeals from the Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Committee, American Jewish Congress and others, reveals a level of rhetoric that far exceeds the bounds of civilized political discourse.
Their words demonstrate that many Jewish organizations do not merely consider devout, politically active Christians to be misguided — they consider them evil.
I believe that if the term anti-Semitism is to retain any intellectual and moral integrity, we must also today admit to the term anti-Christianism. If one is to be fought, then surely both should be. — Lapin, D., 1999, p. 41
Jewish-born Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis has come to play a profoundly influential role in modern America. Jewish scholars Stanley Rothman and S. Robert Lichter note Freud’s views of Christianity, at root in this psychological movement:
Though it is sometimes forgotten today, Freud’s work was profoundly subversive to the cultural underpinnings of European Christian society, a subversiveness of which he was not unaware. There is evidence that some of the impetus for the creation of psychoanalysis lay in his hostility to Christianity. — Rotman/Lichter, 1982, p. 125
These two scholars also note the nature of the widespread modern Jewish leftist/liberal/radical assault upon the Christian world:
In sum, the aim of the Jewish radical is to estrange the Christian from society, as he feels estranged from it. The fact that the United States is no longer ‘Christian’ in any real sense, or that Jews have moved to positions of considerable power and influence, is of little import.
Its Christian base is still unconsciously identified as the decisive oppressive element […] Thus many radical Jews, even when they do not identify with Judaism, unconsciously retain a generalized hostility to Christian culture. — Rotman/Lichter, 1982, p. 125
Christians are everywhere bullied by demanding Jewish accusers. Rabbi Daniel Lapin has expressed concern about Jewish bigotry towards the Christian faith:
To attempt to intimidate people of other faiths into being afraid to speak openly of their beliefs is, in my mind, one of the most foolhardy things the Jewish community has ever done. It is wrong. It is immoral. It is hypocritical. And it is dreadfully unwise politics. Let us pray that it doesn’t come back to haunt us. — Lapin, D., 1999, p. 289
Jewish religious literature itself actually takes full credit for killing Christ. According to the Talmud, notes Israel Shahak:
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.
Jewish leaders want world power; nothing less will do. That they have many Jews believing that they are the ‘chosen’ people.’ Jews were chosen for destruction after their leaders caused Jesus to be executed.
All Jews have suffered since. A large part of the so-called persecution is artificially created to keep Jews scared and to stimulate cash contributions. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been extracted from them in the past 25 years. — Henry H. Klein, Jewish Leaders Are Crazy for Power
And, oh! I almost forgot the reason of reasons. We are the stiff-necked people who never accepted Christianity, and we are the criminal people who crucified its founder. — A Real Case Against the Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part I, ’The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda’, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 3
Even to the non-religious Jews the cross is a symbol of anti-Semitism from which the Jew has had to suffer. — Maurice Friedman, FRIEDMAN, M., 1965, p. 211
For many Jews, the cross is a source of contamination. From time to time, I have helped organize Jewish-Christian meetings at Catholic locations.
There will almost always be some invited Jewish participants who inquire whether there are any crucifixes in the meeting rooms or in the room in which the participants sleep.
If so, some participants will refuse to attend or inquire whether the crucifixes can be covered over or removed. What is going on here? — Michael Wyschogrod, Jewish philosophy professor, WYSCHOGROD, 1989, p. 146
During Christ’s time, the Jews were seeking a material and earthly kingdom but Christ offered the Jews a spiritual kingdom. This, they couldn’t buy, so they rejected Jesus Christ and had him crucified. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992
According to the Talmud, Jesus was executed by a proper rabbinical court for idolatry, inciting other to idolatry and contempt of rabbinical authority. In punishment of this blasphemy, His fate is to be immersed boiling excrement forever.
The Talmud’s view of Christ as a spiritual criminal and Christians as spiritual outlaws has shaped the view of classical Judaism toward Christianity for two thousand years, and continues to do so. — Dr. Israel Shahak, Christian News, 6/16/97, 3277 Boeuf Lutheran Blvd. New Haven, MO
According to the millennia-old Jewish book about Jesus — Tol’doth Yeshu, Jewish professor Joseph Klausner notes that: the sages of Israel recognized [Jesus] and arrested him. They took and hanged him on the eve of Passover. — Klausner, p. 54
Jesus, notes the 1997 Oxford Dictionary of the Jewish Religion:
was arrested as a potential revolutionary and executed (by crucifixion) by order of the Roman procurator Pontius Pilate, probably at the instigation of Jewish circles who feared the Roman reaction to messianic agitation. — Werblowsky, Z., p. 368
Russian-Israeli author Israel Shamir notes the usual dissimulation of modern Jewry, this time regarding the killing of Christ; Joseph Dan, a professor of Jewish mysticism in Hebrew University in Jerusalem, writing on the death of Jesus stated:
The modern Jewish apologists, hesitantly adopted by the church, preferred to put the blame on Romans. But the medieval Jew did not wish to pass the buck.
He tried to prove that Jesus had to be killed, and he was proud of killing Him. The Jews hated and despised Christ and Christians. Actually, adds Professor Dan, there is little place to doubt that the Jewish enemies of Jesus cause his execution. — Shamir, I., 2001
One of the finest things ever done by the mob was the crucifixion of Christ. Intellectually it was a splendid gesture. But trust the mob to bungle [it]. […] if I’d have had charge of executing Christ, I’d have handled it differently.
You see, what I would have done was had him shipped to Rome and fed to the lions. They [Yhshua’s followers] could never have made a savior out of mince meat. — Rabbi Ben Hecht, 1931. The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia had the audacity to laud Mr. Hecht as a great author and movie producer who had a ‘fabulous mind’ as a ‘romantic realist’ and as a talented genius who displayed ‘profound humanity and universal sympathies.’
Christianity prospered greatly […] it promised prizes also to every committer of wrong-doing in every act of jealousy and wickedness, to every worthless person, to every man of insolence, if they would only believe, if they would only accept him.
Jesus the son of a spirit, the lord of devils, as their god, as a forgiving god and not forsake him; if they would only believe that Jesus was crucified, suffered and took upon himself the punishment for all these, respecting each and every sin of all his believers as well, which might be committed by them in every generation to follow […]
But this will never be! They have stumbled in their vanities. — Moses Guibbory, The Bible in the Hands of Its Creators, p. 510
[…] Behold, it follows that Jesus is the serpent, the Satan, known from the Law of Moses by the names ‘Serpent’ and ‘Azaazel’. From which we understand (in Isaiah) that the ‘Azazel’, the serpent, the Satan Jesus, carried the sins and transgressions of the whole house of Israel long before he appeared to be crucified […] — Moses Guibbory, The Bible in the Hands of Its Creators, p. 928
The reason it [the State of Israel] is called the ‘Holy Land’ today is because Jesus of Nazareth lived and died there. To Christians He is the Son of God and Saviour. To Mohammedans He is a great prophet. To official Jewry, He [Yhshua the Christ] is an executed blasphemer. — Dr. Benjamin H. Freedman, 1947
Israel Shamir notes that Jewish hatred for Christians and Christianity is a consistent theme to this very day; Rami Rozen expressed the Jewish tradition in a long feature in a major Israeli Israeli newspaper Haaretz:
Jews feel toward Jesus today what they felt in 4 CE or in the Middle Ages […] it is not fear, it is hatred and despise [sic]. For centuries Jews concealed from Christians their hate to Jesus, and this tradition continues even now.’ Rozen writes that this ‘repulsion passed from observant Jews to the general Israeli public. — Shamir, I., 2001
Even today Jews in Israel refer to Jesus by the demeaning word Yeshu (instead of Yeshua), meaning ‘Perish his name.’ There is an ongoing argument, whether His name was turned into a swear word, or [the] other way around. In a similar pun, the Gospel is called ‘Avon Gilaion,’ the booklet of Sin. — Shjamir, I., 2001
I still remember old Jews spitting while passing by a church, and cursing the dead, while passing by a Christian cemetery. — Shamir, I., 2001
The majority of the Christian Zionists are simple misled souls, people of good intentions but little knowledge. They think they ‘support Jews,’ but they promote the Christ-hating spirit among the Jews. It was not in vain that a hero of the Zionist Bible, Leon Uris [author of Exodus], kept a poster in his room saying ‘We crucified Christ.’
It was not in vain that the Gospel was burned on a stake Israel, while anti-Gospel literature is widely spread; that new immigrant Jews embracing Christianity are persecuted and deported; that every preacher of the Christian faith in Israel can be sent to jail according to new anti-Christian laws; that Israeli archeologists erase the Christian holy sites and memories off the face of the Holy Land. — Shamir, I., 2001
Last year , the biggest Israeli tabloid Yedioth Aharonoth reprinted in its library the Jewish anti-Gospel, Toledoth Yeshu, compiled in the Middle Ages. It is the third recent reprint, including one in a newspaper.
If the Gospel is the book of love, Toledoth is the book of hate for Christ. The hero of the book is Judas. He captures Jesus by polluting his purity. According to Toledoth, the conception of Christ was in sin, the miracles of Christ were witchcraft, his resurrection but a trick. — Israel Shamir, noting how the Toledoth is being rejuvenated in Israel, SHAMIR, I., 2001
In 2001, The Jewish Week noted:
Violence against Christians in Jerusalem appears to be rising as concerns increase over the millennium and its affect on fervent cult groups making pilgrimages to the Holy Land, Israeli officials said this week. Jerusalem police said they are investigating a recent wave of threats and assaults against Christian organizations in Jerusalem. — Greenberg, E., 1-22-99, p. 45
The false, rebellious message of Jesus has been thoroughly rejected by the vast majority of the Jewish people, as G-d commanded. Unfortunately, however, this same message has brought a terrible darkness upon the world; today, over 1.5 billion gentiles believe in Jesus. Those lost souls mistakingly think they have found salvation in Jesus; tragically, they are in for a rude awakening. — Noah’s Covenant Web Site, 2001
In Israel, the ancient Jewish contempt and hatred for — and discrimination against — Christianity is institutionalized. The former Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel, Ovadiah Yosef, when asked what a Jew should do when he comes across a Bible that contains both the Old and New Testaments, advised that the Christian part should be torn out and burned. — Shulweiss, p. 56-57
