"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord, it is always good to fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
The title of this week's feature article, "Oddities of the Jewish Religion," speaks for itself. Please read it yourself and follow all of the links to educate and prepare yourself "that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness." This is an honest essay by Ron Unz, a Jew raised in a Yiddish-speaking Hollywood household. According to this week's items of current news "the evil day" is at the door and the united States is hasting for defeat on home soil. America will be ransomed by Vatican City State through a union of church and state in covenant with non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews of the City of London as Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 13 prophesied. Then the (once) Protestant churches and the united States will be made an image to the beast "and cause those who would not serve the image of the beast to be slain".
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour" (I Peter 5:8). All who enter his totalitarian one world government will obey. As he deceived Eve he has deceived the world church system; he rules the governments of apostate (once) Christian nations and former colonies by their love of money and power. Bankrupted by his international usurers, they privatise public utilities and swap valuable natural resources for debt; he then evicts and recycles unneeded populations as refugees. Individually they are powerless like so many ants, but sustaining them exhausts the nations funding the UN, enriching and empowering his usurers. Led en masse by the unseen 'hidden hand' they are an invincible army conquering Europe. For Satan and his children "the ends justify the means," all will "obey!"
Speaking before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich said concerning progress towards their NWO, "We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born . . . The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . ." (Captain William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. 104-106, ISBN 1615771212). The power of numbers in God's hand will soon utterly defeat the modern state of faux Israel enabling the seed of Jacob to return to the land of their Covenant for redemption (Isaiah 6:9-13; 13:6-16; Daniel 11:39; Joel 2:2; Zechariah 14:1-2; Revelation 16:19; UN Resolution 181).
Your duty to God is to do right; your duty to yourself is to think right. Our objective should be to show our self approved unto God by rightly dividing the Word of Truth, ensuring we do not misinterpret, misplace or dislocate the Word. Our motive is to prove all things and hold fast that which is good that we might come into the unity of the faith and be prepared for the things that are to be.
Several Brethren have misinterpreted, misplaced and dislocated Brother Branham's words and the Words of the Bible to resurrect the 'flat earth' theory even the prophets of yore did not believe. We "rightly divided" Brother Branham's intent in Newsletter 1034 and quoted Matthew 4:4 in Newsletter 1035: Jesus said it was not and apple Eve ate, and "you must not eat bread alone but every Word that comes from the mouth of God." To realize your objective you must not read your weekly Church Newsletter as a slothful dilettante with intent to finish the paper but with a blank mind. Dedicate as much time to the Lord as required and study Newsletters prayerfully. Check the Scriptures to gain "the faith of Jesus Christ" and follow the links for the understanding of revelation. The news items show what Satan and the children of darkness are doing and how God is fulfilling Scripture in real time. The main article reveals what God promised and what Jesus is doing now to help you to discern your position in the Word and confirm your place in the Body.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Robert Fisk: 'I traced Al-Qaeda Missile Casings in Syria back to their Original Sellers'
July 30, 2018 — Robert Fisk recently published a bombshell report entitled, I traced missile casings in Syria back to their original sellers, so it’s time for the west to reveal who they sell arms to. In it Fisk recalls a bit of detective sleuthing he's lately been engaged in after stumbling upon a batch of missile casings and shipment paperwork last year hidden in what he describes as "the basement of a bombed-out Islamist base in eastern Aleppo" with the words "Hughes Aircraft Co/Guided Missile Surface Attack" emblazoned on the side of the spent tubes . . .
The past year especially has seen an uptick in such systematic attempts to trace foreign-supplied weapons on the Syrian battlefield, most of them recovered from internationally designated terrorists groups (even ISIS), back to their origination points. We've previously detailed a number of these reports, for example: Journalist Interrogated, Fired For Story Linking CIA And Syria Weapons Flights as well as Weapons Went From The CIA To ISIS In Less Than Two Months — the latter based on extensive arms tracking and field forensics research produced by Conflict Armament Research (CAR) . . .

Syrian City rocked by deadliest Terror Attack in the Last Two Years
July 25, 2018 — The deadliest terror attack in Syria in the last two years just rocked a city in southern Syria, yet few in the West will likely ever hear of it even as the reported death toll soared late in the day to over 215 civilians killed, with over 180 more wounded. The Eiffel Tower won't be lit up with colours of the Syrian flag in memory of victims, nor will viral #neverforget hashtags make the rounds on social media—and we don't expect too many official condolences issued from European or Western political leaders, . . . (though to its credit the US State Department tonight belatedly condemned the "barbaric ISIS-claimed attacks that took place") . . . "whole families were butchered, scores of on the spot executions, children, women & elderly killed in their homes, another dark day for Syria" . . . Early Wednesday morning four suicide bombers stuck a popular open-air market and other locations in Sweida city, a provincial capital in the country's south. Syrian state media said a motorcycle bomber detonated himself in the marketplace just after dawn, after which a series of other ISIS attacks followed . . . authorities thwarted other potential attacks and "hunted down two terrorist suicide bombers who had been wearing explosive belts and killed them before they were able to blow themselves up in the residential areas in the city" . . . terrorists involved in the coordinated attacks . . . were reportedly rounded up by mobs of angry Sweida residents and hung in front of a public building . . .

Iran waits with Mach 14 Missiles while the US Collapses
July 30, 2018 — "America is the first Undeveloping country of the 21st century"—Gerald Celente
America has trillions of dollars in unfunded repairs to its infrastructure that it must make if it plans to survive. Obama had a 'shovel ready' jobs program that had to be scrapped when feminists complained that the term shovel ready seemed to favour hiring men. Iran, China and Russia need not worry. After eight years of Obama, the infrastructure debt became worse. Trump is proposing we spend a trillion dollars but would require we privatize our best infrastructure. That means we pay for it and the leadership of the Jewish-Globalist Lobby winds up owning our utilities and roads while they gouge us for fees to use what we built [just like Australia].
But even this meagre program is several trillion dollars short of what we need to keep America from turning into a Third World nation. There are dams and levees that badly need repair or replacement. If the much troubled Wolf Creek dam (at Lake Cumberland) fails, the resulting flood would put Nashville under water and cut east west road and rail traffic for tens of millions of Americans. In California their state water project and the levees around Sacramento need repair, but we can't afford to do it. We need to spend more money on Israel's wars.
The Jewish Lobby set up a Pentagon Office for Special Plans in 2001 that funnelled lies from Israel directly to the White House unfiltered by any truthful analysis to justify an invasion of Iraq. That kicked off a $6 trillion spending spree to kill Muslims. The CIA paid ISIS and Al Qaeda money to kill Christians in Syria. Syrian Christian churches can trace their origins back as far as 50 and AD60. Why did we pay crazies to gouge out the eyes of Christians and to behead them? Because they supported secular governments in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. All three of those nations were on General Clark's list of nations to be invaded. Lebanon? Obviously that list originated in Israel.
Enter Iran's Sejjil IRBM missile. Wikipedia says it has a speed of Mach 14. And a range of 2,500 kilometers (1,553.4 miles). The warhead ranges from 500 to 1,500 Kgs. Iran also has a Medium Range missile, the Qadr, which has Mach 14 speed. It has a warhead of 700 to 1,000 kilograms (1,543 to 2,225 pounds). And Iran recently introduced an air to air missile called the Fakour which has Mach 5 speed and a range of 190 Kilometers (118 miles.) Compare that to the US AIM-120 AMRAAM which only has Mach 4 speed and a range of 75 Kms.
Let's delve into Iran's defense budget of $106 billion which has increased 145% since the lifting of sanctions. Iran is funding two wars. They are the primary backers of Iraq's Popular Militias. The Popular Militias outnumber Iraq's regular army. Iranian officers, arms, training and finances have liberated the center of Iraq from ISIS. President Obama let Secretary of State John Kerry give 400 trucks to Al Nusra (Al Qaeda in Syria) who immediately gave them to ISIS (Al Qaeda in Iraq). ISIS used the trucks from Obama and Kerry to take Mosul and split Iraq into 3 parts. That had been Israeli policy since at least 1982 (as proposed by Oded Yinon.) Ever since Israel killed President Kennedy, Israel's policies have been America's.
The point is that Iran has superior weapons to the US. Why and how is that possible?
Russia's defense budget has been cut 25% to $47.247 billion. But they have faster missiles than the US. They are deploying the S-600 anti-missile system. Even the S-400 had missiles with Mach 12.5 and Mach 14 speeds. They also have Khibiny, the Electronic Countermeasure Warfare system. It can shut down US radar, computers and communications systems. The US has been waging psych war against Russia by paying $5 billion to install a corrupt government in the Ukraine. This shift in Ukraine will allow America to move their slow missiles closer to Russia so they can theoretically win a First Strike nuclear war with Russia. As I said, Putin is not impressed. He cut his defense budget 25%.
The people who own the American government seem to be guided by the Talmud which said, "It is legal to rob the Gentiles as soon as we get control of their government" . . . We could not even defeat Iran, Syria and Hezbollah if we wanted to . . . Iran, Russia, China and Syria have nothing to fear. The Saudis, Wall Street, the Jewish Lobby and all kept politicians in the US, the UK and Europe should tremble . . . Full story: vidrebel.wordpress.com
Comment: The US cannot defeat Iran with its inferior conventional weapons, and faux Israel cannot defend itself with nuclear weapons.
The Madness gripping Washington
July 26, 2018 — The US and Israel have been threatening Iran for something like twenty years, initially using the pretext that Iran was developing a nuclear weapon, but also more recently declaring that Tehran has become a threat to the entire Middle East. Both contentions are essentially lies, concocted by an Israel and [Dönmeh Jew-ruled] Saudi Arabia that would prefer to have Iran removed as a possible impediment to their own ambitions. And they would like the United States to do the removing.
Iran is the hottest of all hot spots in the American view, but the tendency of the White House to threaten first before engaging in negotiations has meant that most nations have come to see the United States as the greatest threat to peace worldwide. In a recent interview, Russian President Vladimir Putin observed how the US believes it can intervene militarily anywhere in the world because it is "spreading democracy," a justification that no one believes in any event as the results of recent crusades in Afghanistan, Syria and Libya have been less that encouraging. Putin commented that Washington should treat all other nations with respect and it will then get respect—and cooperation—in return . . . President Trump's warning that he would annihilate Iran missed the point that Rouhani was offering peace and urging that both sides work to avoid war. Full story: strategic-culture.org
Here's the Real Reason the US must talk to Russia
July 21, 2018 — Future historians may well identify Russian President Vladimir Putin's landmark March 1 speech as the ultimate game-changer in the 21st-century New Great Game in Eurasia. The reason is minutely detailed in Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning, a new book by Russian military/naval analyst Andrei Martyanov.
Martyanov is uniquely equipped for the task. Born in Baku in the early 1960s, he was a naval officer in the USSR era up to 1990. He moved to the US in the mid-1990s and is now a lab director in an aerospace firm. He belongs to an extremely rarefied group: top military/naval analysts specializing in US-Russia . . . Martyanov carefully tracks how the only nation on the planet "which can militarily defeat the United States conventionally" has reacted to a situation where any "meaningful dialogue between Russia and America's politicians is virtually impossible" . . . The United States' industrial-military-Intel-security complex profits from a compounded annual budget of roughly US$1 trillion . . . to manufacture a lethal external threat: Russia . . . key reason the complex will not allow US President Donald Trump even to try to normalize relations with Russia . . . The Soviet Navy, as the Russian Navy today, "was built largely for a single purpose: to prevent a NATO attack on the USSR from the sea" . . . Even as Russia "does have the capability to deal major damage to NATO . . . why would Russia attack or damage European countries which are worth way more for Russia free and prosperous than they would be if damaged and, theoretically, subjugated?"
In contrast, Russian diplomacy, as explicitly reaffirmed once again this week by Putin himself, is adamant that anything is permitted when it comes to avoiding Cold War 2.0. But just in case, Russia's new-generation weapons have now been formally unveiled by the Defense Ministry, and some of them are already operational . . . the swamp cannot possibly contemplate The Big Picture—as this must-watch conversation between two of the very few Americans who actually know Russia in-depth attests. Professor Stephen Cohen and Professor John Mearsheimer go to the jugular: Nothing can be done when Russophobia is the law of the land.
Over and over again, we must go back to Putin's March 1 speech, which presented the US with what can only be described, writes Martyanov, as "a military-technological Pearl Harbor-meets-Stalingrad." Martyanov goes all the way to explain how the latest Russian weapons systems present immense strategic—and historical—ramifications. The missile gap between the US and Russia is now "a technological abyss," with ballistic missiles "capable of trajectories which render any kind of anti-ballistic defense useless." Star Wars and its derivatives are now—to use a Trumpism—"obsolete." The Kinzhal, as described by Martyanov, is "a complete game-changer geopolitically, strategically, operationally, tactically and psychologically" . . . "no modern or prospective air-defense system deployed today by NATO can intercept even a single missile with such characteristics."
This means, among other things—and stressing it is never enough—that the whole Eastern Mediterranean can be closed off, not to mention the whole Persian Gulf. And all this goes way beyond asymmetry; it's about "the final arrival of a completely new paradigm" in warfare and military technology. Martyanov's must-read book is the ultimate Weapon of Myth Destruction (WMD). And unlike the Saddam Hussein version, this one actually exists. As Putin warned (at 7:10 in the video), "They did not listen to us then." Are they listening now? Full story: atimes.com
Comment: Speaking in 1958 Brother Branham said, "What would our Pentagon do, if Russia did such a thing, and say, "Now, surrender, or go to ashes." We'd have to surrender, only sensible thing to do would be surrender. They're up there: we can't bring them down" (#58-0520, The Sign of the Time).
Russia will have to "do such a thing," the USA is a rogue state: God-forsaking Americans surrendered fealty to God for servitude to the alien usurers who control the Military Industrial Complex. The Judaeo-Roman false church will save the corrupt world order by refinancing the dollar. Russia will withdraw as Church and state unite in world government (Daniel 2, Revelation 13). When Rome forces her mark of the beast, Europe will side with Russia which will annihilate Vatican City State and the united States; Armageddon will produce the consummation.
Of his 1933 apocalypse the Prophet said, "The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
Pentagon's $200m Aid to Ukraine is slap to Trump
July 27, 2018 — Only days after President Donald Trump's successful summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, the Pentagon this week announced that it was sending $200 million in military aid to the Kiev regime. The new package of military aid is said to be for boosting the "command and control" readiness of the Ukraine Armed Forces (UAF). It follows the supply earlier this year, in March, of $47 million-worth of "lethal" armaments in the form of US-made Javelin anti-tank missiles.
The UAF on the orders of President Poroshenko and the regime in Kiev have been waging a war against pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine for nearly four years, since the Kiev regime came to power in a CIA-backed coup d'état. Russia deplored the latest US military subvention to Ukraine, saying it clearly shows that Washington is an "accomplice" to the conflict, not a mediator for a peaceful resolution. The latest $200m aid disbursement brings the total American military support to the Kiev regime to $1 billion since the bloody coup in 2014. Full story: strategic-culture.org
Comment: This signals Pentagon and Ukraine complicity in downing MH17—a false flag black flag op to incite war with Russia. Ukraine is the homeland of the non-Semitic-anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who migrated from Lower Mongolia.

Russia, Ukraine & Belarus mark 1,030 Years since Ancestors adopted Christianity
July 28, 2018 — At noon, bells in all Orthodox Cathedrals in Moscow began ringing to mark the holiday. A sacred procession was attended by thousands of worshipers despite the heat of over 30 degrees Celsius in the capital.
The head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, and Russian President, Vladimir Putin, walked together with the people all the way to the monument to Vladimir the Great, where a divine liturgy was held. Putin congratulated attendees on the holiday, saying that what happened 1,030 years ago was an "event of a civilizational scale" that affected the history of not only Russia, but the whole world. "Christianization has been the starting point for the formation and development of the Russian statehood as well as the spiritual birth of our ancestors," Putin said. "The Orthodox faith did something, which wasn't there previously—it addressed the man, his conscience and his soul, with the eternal call to mercy, kindness and love."

Comment: Byzantine decorum is a tad more formal than services at Pupplagutta or the dedication of "The Church of Saint Gerald of the Southern Cross" in Webuye Sunday last, surpassing baptisms at Kamuli and conventions in Owerri. Unlike Currabubula, Moscow's choreography was the nonpareil and the congregation—closely watched by security—was wide-awake.
Israel illegally enshrines Apartheid in its 'Basic Law'
July 26, 2018 — On July 19, 2018, the Israeli Knesset enacted a law that illegally enshrines a system of apartheid . . . trips away any pretence that Israel is a democracy. Moreover, it violates customary and treaty-based international law. Absent is any guarantee of self-determination for the 1.8 million Arabs who comprise 20 percent of Israel's population . . . Although Barack Obama, like US presidents before him, supported Israel's apartheid policies, Donald Trump took that support to a new level by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December 2017. In spite of the well-established status of East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine, the Basic Law states, "Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel" . . . apartheid . . . like slavery, torture, genocide and wars of aggression . . . is considered a jus cogens prohibition . . . the highest form of customary international law . . .

An Excellent Question on Revelation 7
Question: With regard to "under heaven" for Israelites, is it the same in meaning to being "removed from the Book of Life" or just "blotted out of the tribal affair" before Armageddon?
Reply: Of course the apostates and idolaters were blotted from the Book of Life, but the tribal names Dan and Ephraim were suspended and replaced by Joseph and Levi until the 144,000 receive their new birth at which time they will no longer be "under heaven" (Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 14:1-5).
Question: If it's the latter, does that mean any from the tribes of Dan and Ephraim could be born again if they believed any of the Church Age Messages and could also be part of the Fifth Seal?
Reply: No, Brother, Israelites from whatever Tribe who were born-again by the revelation of the Message of the Church Age Messenger to their day are elect and members of the Church, Christ's Bride. Those under the Fifth Seal are non-elect Israelites martyred for their obedience to and stand for the Law of Moses from Calvary to the close of the Gentile dispensation. At the White Throne Judgment they will be judged and granted into eternal Life by people such as yourself.
Question: Appending Revelation 7:14-17 to the foolish virgins to be "given" white robes like those of the Fifth Seal, it appears that Scripture unveils a compound meaning because though it clearly describes Christ's bride of all Ages whom the Lamb is always and intimately associated with it however differentiate the PART-Word saints from the Capstone saints of the same Body.
Reply: The Prophet must been have to led to express himself in seemingly contradictory terms to "thin down the crowd" when speaking on Revelation 7. Revelation chapter 7 is a parenthesis between the Sixth and Seventh Seals as they are written in "the letter" of the Book showing what will take place under the Sixth Seal after the close of the Gentile dispensation. Remember throughout this Book John represents Christ's end-time Bride and not the Church Age saints for Christ fulfilled Revelation 4, 5, 6 and 10:1-4 on about March 8, 1963 after the close of the Laodicean Church Age. Revelation 7:9-10, 13-14 (Revelation 22:14)-17 represent the Church Age saints who fell asleep and are resurrected under the Sixth Seal. Since only the elect of God can enter New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:27) Revelation 7:9-17 speaks of Christ's Bride of all Ages.
In Matthew 24:1-3 the disciples asked Jesus three questions:
- When will the buildings of the Temple be levelled with the ground? Matthew 24:15-21.
- What shall be the sign of your second of (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming? Matthew 24:30-31. And
- What will be the sign of the end of the age ushering-in the millennium and your second physical or (Gk.) 'erchomai' return? Matthew 24:32-34.
In answering their first question Jesus prophesied the great tribulation would commence with the investiture of Jerusalem by the legions of General Titus and continue throughout the Christian dispensation to Armageddon. Thereafter the "woman" of Revelation 12 will once again represent Israel. After the resurrection and translation of His Bride, Christ will anoint two Israelite prophets to separate 144,000 elect Israelites during "the time of Jacob's trouble." The tribulation will fall upon them when Rome breaks her covenant with the Jewish banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Daniel 9:27), forcing her mark of the beast which has been trinitarianism (Revelation 13) since she organized at the First Nicaea Council in AD325. Thus the Church is "They which came out of the Great Tribulation" (Revelation 7:14).
We live under Revelation 16:14-15 and Matthew 24:22: "the tribulation will be shortened" by our translation. A clear revelation of the Prophet's Message will bring us to maturity "in the unity of the faith." The Voice of Christ the Archangel" living within in our heart is confirming the Message from Genesis to Revelation (I Corinthians 6:19; Revelation 21:3) so that after the Seventh Trump we will manifest that we are the Sons of God (Romans 8:19). And "when the Day of Pentecost has full come" [again], change in the atoms to "meet the Lord in the air" (I Thessalonians 4:16-18; I Corinthians 15:35-57; Revelation 11:15).
Oddities of the Jewish Religion (abridged)
By Ron Unz
July 16, 2018 — Traditionally religious Jews pay little attention to most of the Old Testament, and even very learned rabbis or students who have devoted many years to intensive study may remain largely ignorant of its contents. Instead, the center of their religious world view is the Talmud, an enormously large, complex, and somewhat contradictory mass of secondary writings and commentary built up over many centuries, which is why their religious doctrine is sometimes called "Talmudic Judaism." Among large portions of the faithful, the Talmud is supplemented by the "Kabala," another large collection of accumulated writings, mostly focused on mysticism and all sorts of magic. Since these commentaries and interpretations represent the core of the religion, much of what everyone takes for granted in the Bible is considered in a very different manner.
Given the nature of the Talmudic basis of traditional Judaism and my total previous ignorance of the subject, any attempt on my part of summarize some of the more surprising aspects of Professor Israel Shahak's description in "Jewish History, Jewish Religion" may be partially garbled, and certainly worthy of correction by someone better versed in that dogma. And given that so many parts of the Talmud are highly contradictory and infused with complex mysticism, it would be impossible for someone like me to attempt to disentangle the seeming inconsistencies that I am merely repeating. I should note that although Shahak's description of the beliefs and practices of Talmudic Judaism evoked a fire-storm of denunciations, few of those harsh critics seem to have denied his very specific claims, including the most astonishing ones, which would seem to strengthen his credibility.
On the most basic level, the religion of most traditional Jews is actually not at all monotheistic, but instead contains a wide variety of different male and female gods, having quite complex relations to each other, with these entities and their properties varying enormously among the numerous different Jewish sub-sects, depending upon which portions of the Talmud and the Kabala they place uppermost. For example, the traditional Jewish religious cry "The Lord is One" has always been interpreted by most people to be an monotheistic affirmation, and indeed, many Jews take exactly this same view. But large numbers of other Jews believe this declaration instead refers to achievement of sexual union between the primary male and female divine entities. [As portrayed in the occult flag of the modern state of faux Israel]. And most bizarrely, Jews having such radically different views see absolutely no difficulty in praying side by side, and merely interpreting their identical chants in very different fashion.
Furthermore, religious Jews apparently pray to Satan almost as readily as they pray to God, and depending upon the various rabbinical schools, the particular rituals and sacrifices they practice may be aimed at enlisting the support of the one or the other. Once again, so long as the rituals are properly followed, the Satan-worshippers and the God-worshippers get along perfectly well and consider each other equally pious Jews, merely of a slightly different tradition. One point Shahak repeatedly emphasizes is that in traditional Judaism the nature of the ritual itself is absolutely uppermost, while the interpretation of the ritual is rather secondary. So perhaps a Jew who washes his hands three times clockwise might be horrified by another who follows a counter-clockwise direction, but whether the hand-washing were meant to honour God or to honor Satan would hardly be a matter of much consequence.
Strangely enough, many of the traditional rituals are explicitly intended to fool or trick God or His angels or sometimes Satan, much like the mortal heroes of some Greek legend might seek to trick Zeus or Aphrodite. For example, certain prayers must be uttered in Aramaic rather than Hebrew on the grounds that holy angels apparently don't understand the former language, and their confusion allows those verses to slip by unimpeded and take effect without divine interference . . .
Another fascinating aspect is that until very recent times, the lives of religious Jews were often dominated by all sorts of highly superstitious practices, including magical charms, potions, spells, incantations, hexes, curses, and sacred talismans, with rabbis often having an important secondary role as sorcerers, and this even remains entirely true today among the enormously influential rabbis of Israel and the New York City area. Shahak's writings had not endeared him to many of these individuals, and for years they constantly attacked him with all sorts of spells and fearful curses aimed at achieving his death or illness. Many of these traditional Jewish practices seem not entirely dissimilar to those we typically associate with African witch-doctors or Voodoo priests . . .
If these ritualistic issues constituted the central features of traditional religious Judaism, we might regard it as a rather colourful and eccentric survival of ancient times. But unfortunately, there is also a far darker side, primarily involving the relationship between Jews and non-Jews, with the highly derogatory term goyim frequently used to describe the latter. To put it bluntly, Jews have divine souls and goyim do not, being merely beasts in the shape of men. Indeed, the primary reason for the existence of non-Jews is to serve as the slaves of Jews, with some very high-ranking rabbis occasionally stating this well-known fact. In 2010, Israel's top Sephardic rabbi used his weekly sermon to declare that the only reason for the existence of non-Jews is to serve Jews and do work for them. The enslavement or extermination of all non-Jews seems an ultimate implied goal of the religion.
Jewish lives have infinite value, and non-Jewish ones none at all, which has obvious policy implications. For example, in a published article a prominent Israeli rabbi explained that if a Jew needed a liver, it would be perfectly fine, and indeed obligatory, to kill an innocent Gentile and take his. Perhaps we should not be too surprised that today Israel is widely regarded as one of the world centres of organ-trafficking. [One is expected to lament the holocaust hoax of six million non-Semitic "Jew's" claimed in World War I, the hoax of a further six million non-Semitic "Jews'" by Jew-ruled USSR between the wars that was the real extermination of 66 million Christian Goyim—human cattle—by Jews, and a mythical six million in World War II, and cheer their real present-day, day-by-day holocaust of Semitic Palestinians by non-Semitic 'Jews"].
As a further illustration of the seething hatred traditional Judaism radiates towards all those of a different background, saving the life of a non-Jew is generally considered improper or even prohibited, and taking any such action on the Sabbath would be an absolute violation of religious edict. Such dogmas are certainly ironic given the widespread presence of Jews in the medical profession during recent centuries, but they came to the fore in Israel when a religiously-minded military doctor took them to heart and his position was supported by the country's highest religious authorities.
While religious Judaism has a decidedly negative view towards all non-Jews, Christianity in particular is regarded as a total abomination, which must be wiped from the face of the earth.
Whereas pious Muslims consider Jesus the holy prophet of God and Muhammad's immediate predecessor, according to the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is perhaps the vilest being who ever lived, condemned to spend eternity in the bottommost pit of Hell, immersed in a boiling vat of excrement. Religious Jews regard the Muslim Quran as just another book, though a totally mistaken one, but the Christian Bible represents purest evil, and if circumstances permit, burning Bibles is a very praiseworthy act. Pious Jews are also enjoined to always spit three times at any cross or church they encounter, and direct a curse at all Christian cemeteries. Indeed, many deeply religious Jews utter a prayer each and every day for the immediate extermination of all Christians.
Over the years prominent Israeli rabbis have sometimes publicly debated whether Jewish power has now become sufficiently great that all the Christian churches of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and other nearby areas can finally be destroyed, and the entire Holy Land completely cleansed of all traces of its Christian contamination. Some have taken this position, but most have urged prudence, arguing that Jews needed to gain some additional strength before they should take such a risky step. These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance . . .
If the Gentile population became aware of these Jewish religious beliefs and the behaviours they promote, major problems for Jews might develop, so an elaborate methodology of subterfuge, concealment, and dissimulation has come into being over the many centuries to minimize this possibility, especially including the mistranslation of sacred texts or the complete exclusion of crucial sections. Meanwhile, the traditional penalty for any Jew who "informs" the authorities on any matter regarding the Jewish community has always been death, often preceded by hideous torture.
Much of this dishonesty obviously continues down to recent times since it seems very unlikely that Jewish rabbis, except perhaps for those of the most avant garde disposition, would remain totally unaware of the fundamental tenets of the religion that they claim to lead, and Shahak is scathing toward their apparent self-serving hypocrisy, especially those who publicly express strongly liberal views. For example, according to mainstream Talmudic doctrine, black Africans are traditionally placed somewhere between people and monkeys in their intrinsic nature, and surely all rabbis, even liberal ones, would be aware of this religious doctrine. But Shahak notes that the numerous American rabbis who so eagerly worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and other black Civil Rights leaders during the 1950s and 1960s strictly concealed their religious beliefs while denouncing American society for its cruel racism, presumably seeking to achieve a political quid pro quo beneficial to Jewish interests from America's substantial black population.
Shahak also emphasizes the utterly totalitarian nature of traditional Jewish society, in which rabbis held the power of life and death over their congregants, and often sought to punish ideological deviation or heresy using those means. They were often outraged that this became difficult as states grew stronger and increasingly prohibited such private executions. Liberalizing rabbis were sometimes murdered and Baruch Spinoza, the famous Jewish philosopher of the Age of Reason, only survived because the Dutch authorities refused to allow his fellow Jews to kill him.
Given the complexity and exceptionally controversial nature of this subject matter, I would urge readers who find this topic of interest to spend three or four hours reading Professor Israel Shahak's very short book, "Jewish History, Jewish Religion" and then decide for themselves whether his claims seem plausible and whether I may have inadvertently misunderstood them. My encounter a decade ago with Shahak's candid description of the true doctrines of traditional Judaism was certainly one of the most world-altering revelations of my entire life. But as I gradually digested the full implications, all sorts of puzzles and disconnected facts suddenly became much more clear. There were also some remarkable ironies, and not long afterward I joked to a (Jewish) friend of mine that I'd suddenly discovered that Nazism could best be described as "Judaism for Wimps" or perhaps Judaism as practiced by Mother Teresa of Calcutta . . .
Quite a number of the leading racialist pioneers of 19th century Europe came from a particular ethnic background. For example, my history books had always disapprovingly mentioned Germany's Max Nordau and Italy's Cesare Lombroso as two of the founding figures of European racism and eugenics theories, but it was only very recently that I also discovered that Nordau had also been the joint founder with Theodor Herzl of the world Zionist movement, while his major racialist treatise "Degeneration", was dedicated to Lombroso, his Jewish mentor.
Even as late as the 1930s and afterward, international Zionist groups closely cooperated with the Third Reich on international economic projects, and during the world war itself one of the smaller rightwing factions, led by future Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, actually offered a military alliance to the Axis Powers, denouncing the decadent Western democracies and hoping to cooperate against their mutual British enemies. "The Transfer Agreement" by Edwin Black, "51 Documents" by Lenni Brenner, and other writings have documented all these facts in detail, though for obvious reasons they have generally been ignored or mischaracterized by most of our media outlets.
Obviously the "Talmud" is hardly regular reading among ordinary Jews these days, and I would suspect that except for the strongly Orthodox and perhaps most rabbis, barely a sliver are aware of its highly controversial teachings. But it is important to keep in mind that until just a few generations ago, almost all European Jews were deeply Orthodox, and even today I would guess that the overwhelming majority of Jewish adults had Orthodox grand-parents. Highly distinctive cultural patterns and social attitudes can easily seep into a considerably wider population, especially one that remains ignorant of the origin of those sentiments, a condition enhancing their unrecognized influence. A religion based upon the principal of "Love Thy Neighbour" may or may not be workable in practice, but a religion based upon "Hate Thy Neighbour" may be expected to have long-term cultural ripple effects that extend far beyond the direct community of the deeply pious. If nearly all Jews for a thousand or two thousand years were taught to feel a seething hatred toward all non-Jews and also developed an enormous infrastructure of cultural dishonesty to mask that attitude, it is difficult to believe that such an unfortunate history has had absolutely no consequences for our present-day world, or that of the relatively recent past.
Furthermore, Jewish hostility toward non-Jews may have often served the interests of others, and helped determine the economic role they played, especially in European countries, with this factor having been obscured by widespread ignorance of the underlying religious tenets. As most of us know from our history books, political rulers with little sympathy for their subjects sometimes restrict military power to a relatively small group of well-rewarded mercenaries, often of foreign origins so that they will have little sympathy for the population they harshly repress. I strongly suspect that some of the most common traditional economic niches of European Jews, such as tax-farming and the arrenda estate-management system of Eastern Europe, should be best understood in a similar light, with Jews being more likely to extract every last penny of value from the peasants they controlled for the benefit of their local king or lords, and their notorious antipathy for all non-Jews ensuring that such behaviour was minimally tempered by any human sympathy. Thus, we should not be surprised that Jews first entered England in the train of William the Conqueror, in order to help him and his victorious Norman lords effectively exploit the subjugated Anglo-Saxon population they now ruled.
But states in which the vast majority of the population is oppressed and dominated by a thin slice of rulers and their mercenary enforcers tend to be much weaker and more brittle than those in which rulers and ruled share common interests, and I believe this is just as true for economic enforcers as for military ones. In many cases, lands reliant upon Jewish economic intermediaries, notably Poland, never successfully developed a native middle class, and often later fared quite poorly against their nationally-unified competitors. Spain was actually one of the last countries in Europe to expel its Jews, and over the next century or two reached the peak of its military and political glory. Prof. Kevin MacDonald's controversial books on Judaism ["A People That Shall Dwell Alone" and "Separation and Its Discontents"] have also extensively argued that rulers [such as Adolf Hitler] who seem to have been more concerned for the well-being of their subjects also tend to be the ones more likely to be labelled "anti-Semitic" in modern history books, and his volumes are now easily available in my selection of HTML Books:
In 2009, Gene Expression blogger Razib Khan interviewed eminent evolutionary theorist David Sloan Wilson on the group selection ideas that have been his major focus. During this hour-long discussion, the theories of MacDonald became a major topic, with Wilson seeming to take them quite seriously, and pointing out that within the scientific framework "parasitism" has a simple technical definition, namely the exploitation of the large by the small. Unsurprisingly, the video record of such extremely touchy subject matter was quickly truncated to just the first 11 minutes, and eventually completely removed from both YouTube and BloggingHeadsTV. But it still at least partially survives in archived form.
In recent years, the history of Jewish expulsions from various European societies over the last thousand years has received considerable attention. The total number is somewhat disputed but almost certainly in excess of 100, with the 1930s policies of Hitler's Germany being merely the most recent example, and Wired Magazine provided an interesting graphical presentation of this large dataset in 2013. Given these unfortunate facts, it may be difficult to point to any other group so consistently at bitter odds with its local neighbours, and the religious details provided by Shahak certainly make this remarkable historical pattern far less inexplicable.
A very even-handed but candid description of the behaviour pattern of Jewish newcomers to America was provided in a chapter of a 1914 book on immigration groups by E.A. Ross, one of America's greatest early sociologists. Ross had been one of the towering Progressive intellectuals of his era, widely quoted by Lothrop Stoddard on the Right while still so highly regarded by the Left that he was named to the Dewey Commission to adjudicate the conflicting accusations of Trotsky and Stalin and also received glowing praise in the pages of the Communist New Masses. His dismissal on political grounds from Stanford University led to the formation of the American Association of University Professors. Yet his name had so totally vanished from our history books I had never even encountered it until beginning work on my content-archiving project, and I would not be surprised if that single chapter from one of his many books played a major role in his disappearance.
Jews spent two thousand years living as a diaspora people, and their tightly-bound trans-national colonies provided them with a uniquely effective international trading network. Since their religious traditions regarded slavery as the natural and appropriate lot of all non-Jews, both ideological and practical factors combined to apparently make them some of the leading slave-traders of Medieval Europe, though this is hardly emphasized in our histories. Closer to home, in 1991 the Black Nationalists of The Nation of Islam published "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews," Volume One, which seemed to persuasively document the enormous role Jews had played in the American slave-trade. In 1994, Harold Brackman published a short attempted rebuttal entitled "Ministry of Lies" under the auspices of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, but I found his denials much less compelling. I very much doubt that most Americans are aware of these historical facts.
Throughout most of my life, Nobel Laureate Alexander Solzhenitsyn was generally regarded as the greatest Russian literary figure of our modern era, and after reading all of his works, including "The First Circle, Cancer Ward," and "The Gulag Archipelago," I certainly concurred with this assertion, and eagerly absorbed Michael Scammel's brilliant thousand page biography. Although Russian himself, many of his closest friends were Jewish, but during the 1980s and 1990s, whispers of his supposed anti-Semitism began floating around, probably because he had sometimes hinted at the very prominent role of Jews in both financing and leading the Bolshevik Revolution, and afterward staffing the NKVD and administering the Gulag labour camps. Late in his life, he wrote a massive two-volume history of the tangled relationship between Jews and Russians under the title "Two Hundred Years Together," and although that work soon appeared in Russian, French, and German, nearly two decades later, no English translation has ever been authorized. His literary star seems also to greatly waned in America since that time, and I only very rarely see his name mentioned these days in any newspapers . . . perhaps the documentation of very heavy Jewish role in Communism was considered inappropriate for American audiences, as was the discussion of the extremely exploitative relationship between Jews and Slavic peasants in pre-revolutionary times, based on liquor-dealing and money-lending, which the Czars had often sought to mitigate.
When a ruling elite has limited connection to the population it controls, benevolent behaviour is far less likely to occur, and those problems are magnified when that elite has a long tradition of ruthlessly extractive behaviour. Enormous numbers of Russians suffered and died in the aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution, and given the overwhelmingly Jewish composition of the top leadership during much of that period, it is hardly surprising that "anti-Semitism" was deemed a capital offense. Kevin MacDonald may have been the one who coined the term "hostile elite," and discussed the unfortunate consequences when a country comes under such control.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, reborn Russia soon fell under the overwhelming domination of a small group of Oligarchs, almost entirely of Jewish background, and a decade of total misery and impoverishment for the general Russian population soon followed. But once an actual Russian named Vladimir Putin regained control, these trends reversed and the lives of Russians have enormously improved since that time. America's media organs were overwhelmingly friendly toward Russia when it was under Jewish Oligarchic rule, while Putin has been demonized in the press more ferociously than any world leader since Hitler. Indeed, our media pundits regularly identify Putin as "the new Hitler" and I actually think the analogy might be a reasonable one, but just not in the way they intend.
Sometimes it is much easier to notice obvious patterns in a foreign country than in one's own. In the early 2000s I read "The Master Switch," a widely-praised history of modern communications technology by Columbia University professor Tim Wu, who has subsequently become a leading Internet-rights activist. I found the account fascinating, with so many stories never before known to me. However, I couldn't help but notice that all the powerful mass-media technologies of our modern world–film, radio, and television–had been invented and pioneered by Gentiles, mostly of Anglo-Saxon origin, but in each case control was seized by ruthless Jewish businessmen, who sometimes destroyed the lives and careers of those creators. By the 1950s, nearly all of America's leading concentrations of electronic media power—with the sole major exception of Disney Studios—were solidly in Jewish hands. In an open society such as ours, these are the central levers of political influence, and over the next generation or so, America's long-dominant and heavily Anglo-Saxon ruling elite was replaced by a mostly Jewish one, a development I alluded to in my long "Meritocracy article" of a few years ago.
Critics today of all backgrounds bemoan the total impoverishment of so much of America's once comfortably affluent middle class, noting that some sixty percent of the American population today possesses less than $500 in readily available savings. A younger generation has been reduced to permanent debt-servitude by ruinous student loans, while the newspapers report that the opioid drug epidemic has claimed a dreadful toll in lives and family-breakdown even while Wall Street and other elite sectors of the financialized economy are richer than they have ever been before. There are certainly many different explanations for this sad economic trajectory, including technological change, growing international competition, and shifts of political power in the American system of government. But it does sometimes seem like a substantial fraction of our population has been reduced to a 21st century version of the drunken, ignorant, exploited, indebted, impoverished, and immiserated Slavic peasantry of the Jewish-dominated Pale of Settlement, and a striking graph produced by the Economic Policy Institute demonstrates that a very sharp economic inflection point occurred in the early 1970s, right around the time that the aforementioned ethnic transformation of our ruling elites was fully under way. . .
One important point to consider in the abbreviated history of Hitler's Third Reich was that although the ruling Nazi elite was often quite harsh and extreme in its behaviour, well over 98% of the population it ruled prior to the outbreak of war consisted of Germans, the particular group which that ruling elite most sought to benefit and uplift in all possible ways, and despite the obscuring cloud of retrospective propaganda, this goal seems to have largely been achieved. In 2004, Counterpunch published a column by the late Alexander Cockburn, its redoubtable editor, noting the tremendous success of Hitler's peacetime economic policies, and in 2013 that same webzine carried a much longer column focused entirely on this same subject, citing the analysis of Henry C.K. Liu, whose Chinese background provided him greater critical distance. Indeed, during most of the 1930s Hitler received widespread international praise for the great success of his domestic economic and social achievements, making the cover of Time Magazine on numerous occasions and even being named its Man of the Year for 1938. By contrast, I suspect that a population that was some 98% non-German but ruled by those same fanatically pro-German leaders might have fared far worse.
Most of these disheartening facts that have so completely upended my understanding of reality over the last decade could not possibly have come to my attention until the rise of the Internet, which partially broke centralized control over the distribution of information. But many other people surely must have known large portions of this important story long before that, and recognized the very serious consequences these matters might have for the future of our society. Why has there been so little public discussion?
I believe one factor is that over the years and the decades, our dominant media organs of news and entertainment have successfully conditioned most Americans to suffer a sort of mental allergic reaction to topics sensitive to Jews, which leads to all sorts of issues being considered absolutely out of bounds. And with America's very powerful Jewish elites thereby insulated from almost all public scrutiny, Jewish arrogance and misbehaviour remain largely unchecked and can increase completely without limit . . .
Ariel Toaff, professor of Jewish Renaissance and Medieval Studies at Bar-Ilan University near Tel Aviv, and himself the son of the Chief Rabbi of Rome . . . published the Italian edition of his academic study "Blood Passovers," based on many years of diligent research, assisted by his graduate students and guided by the suggestions of his various academic colleagues, with the initial print run of 1,000 copies selling out on the first day. Given Toaff's international eminence and such enormous interest, further international distribution, including an English edition by a prestigious American academic press would normally have followed. But the ADL and various other Jewish-activist groups regarded such a possibility with extreme disfavour, and although these activists lacked any scholarly credentials, they apparently applied sufficient pressure to cancel all additional publication. Although Prof. Toaff initially attempted to stand his ground in stubborn fashion, he soon took the same course as Galileo, and his apologies naturally became the basis of the always-unreliable Wikipedia entry on the topic . . .
I first encountered these very surprising ideas almost a dozen years ago in a long article by Israel Shamir that was referenced in Counterpunch, and this would definitely be worth reading as an overall summary, together with a couple of his follow-up columns, while writer Andrew Hamilton offers the most recent 2012 overview of the controversy. Shamir also helpfully provides a free copy of the book in PDF form, an updated version with the footnotes properly noted in the text . . . when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.
