In an arresting article covering the origins of Judaism, the erudite Jonas Alexis engages in a fascinating excavation which obliterates many of the conceptions which Americans - especially those of the “Christian Right” – hold true of this ancient religion - the alleged progenitor of Christianity.
Before proceeding, we wish to explain our foray into religious matters because in this case it is critical to understanding the dynamics between the US and Israel, the twain which seem as one. In fact it appears that the tail is wagging the dog, a situation which has wedded the United States to an endless stream of wars all predicated upon establishing the Jewish state as the supreme despot in the Middle East.
Many Americans believe that Judaism rests upon the Bible, even if it is only a small sliver known as the Torah, the first 5 books of the Bible to which Christians sometimes refer as the Pentateuch. Alexis demonstrates most persuasively that Judaism has relatively little to do with the Torah, even though it is ironically the stated foundation of the Judaic system of philosophy.
The words of Jesus calling the Pharisees “vipers” and “murderers” should be a clue to the Satanic origins of Judaism which had become entrenched in Jewish life when he stated that they were of their father the Devil.
When the Chaldeans carried the Jews into captivity to Babylon and elsewhere, the survivors lost the organizing principle of their religious life – the Temple and the Scriptures. It is from this calamity that the Scribes emerged who assumed responsibility for interpreting Scripture, producing the writings which supported religious thought and life.
With the onset of Hellenization, two camps of religious belief established themselves among the Jews – the Sadducees and Pharisees. The former adhered to the written word of the Scriptures, while the latter developed a philosophical system based upon the written word and the Oral Tradition, the latter which became the essential element of Judaism.
The rabbis argued that without the Oral Tradition it is impossible to understand the Written Tradition. Indeed, during the Middle Ages, the Zohar was written which plainly stated that the Bible cannot possibly be understood by resorting to its plain statements. Surely God would not use pedestrian language and stories to communicate his profound truths. There must be something more, and the enlightened would be happy to inform the unwashed masses of the esoteric and practical truths buried within the Torah.
This hermeneutical position required the elevation of the Zohar above Moses. Later Jesus would tell the Pharisees that they would not listen to Moses, a direct substantiation of the influence of the Zohar 1300 years prior to its formal presentation.
The Pharisees asserted that while Moses may have received the Law, he also received extensive commentary and notes at Mt Sinai which he distributed to Aaron and Levi which they in turn circulated among the Elders for instruction to the tribes. Thus was born the Oral Tradition.
After some centuries of this Oral Tradition, the Pharisees realized the need to commit it to – of all things – writing, a corpus known as the Talmud. With the extinction of the Sadducees, the Pharisees remained as the only authority to teach the Jews their religion. Thus after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD and the final crushing of the Jewish revolt c. 135 AD, Jewish religion became thoroughly and completely Pharisaical and under the control of massive Talmudic writings which were produced around the 3d century, with some saying the process started about a century earlier.
Thus Jewish religious philosophy comprises the Talmud which uses elements of the Torah, Zohar, and Midrash, the latter of which contains commentary on the other writings within the Talmud.
For those who are not alert to the point, Talmudism is the real name for Judaism, a point to be inferred from the numerous quotes Alexis produces of the rabbis who state bluntly and plainly that the Torah is not basis of Judaism; rather the Talmud is.
This arrogance of displacing God’s Word with Man’s word was the animus which drove Jesus to declare the Pharisees to be of their father Satan.
Alexis proceeds to sample the thought of the rabbis, who in all respects consider the gentiles to be second class citizens at best – people who are to serve them night and day. The rabbis also teach that there are no commonalities or compatibilities between Christianity and Judaism – at least not in any meaningful semantic way. Jesus would agree.
It is clear to us that any such blather about an American Judeo-Christian heritage is a canard to dupe fools into accepting the Pharisaical teachings of the Talmud, and to destroy Christianity.
Producing a parade of Jewish scholars and rabbis, Alexis demonstrates that Judaism is impossible without the Talmud, and the Torah, in the minds of the rabbis, incomprehensible without it. Thus it is the Oral or Talmudic tradition which is the first and final word in Judaism.
When pressed to produce authority for such an extra-biblical hermeneutic, the rabbis resort to the circular reasoning that it is found in the Oral Tradition which no man can consult save the rabbis, making Judaism an analogue of the Mystery Religions where only the priests allegedly knew the words and thoughts of the gods.
Judaism also shares with Gnosticism the idea that the words of holy writ can never be fully divined without a special enlightenment given to the few. In all fairness, even the Apostle Paul stated that the Holy Spirit – the enlightener – was required to understand Scripture, but it was never the special province of a limited self-appointed few, or to private interpretation. Anyone can ask for such illumination. Yet with Judaism recondite knowledge is accorded to a very few who control the masses.
So what are the teachings of Pharasaism? There is no simple answer because, as Alexis notes, there are numerous traditions and camps within Talmudism. At the end of the day however, we argue that Judaism is all about superiority and hate, the same beliefs animating the British aristocracy, and Satan's hatred of man.
While it is commonly reported in the state controlled Ziocon media that the Arabs want to annihilate the Jews, the truth is that the Jews are projecting. Alexis produces the following from Rabbi Ovadia Yosef:
“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat
“With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.”
In 2001, the same rabbi postulated that the Arabs are “vipers” and must be annihilated from the pages of history:
“It is forbidden to be merciful to them. You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable.”
The so-called Star of David with its triadic hexagram is the 666 of Revelation. It is for this reason why we expose the wickedness of this religion, the very philosophical tradition which impelled the Jews to kill the Christ. If they killed him, they will not stop at murdering anyone else. Yet Jesus prayed of the people, "Forgive them for they know not what they do."
