This Palestinian Family has Justice on its Side

January 3, 2011

“My entire family is ruined … The whole house feels a sense of catastrophe.” [Yet, he] said he bears no hatred toward Israelis. “They are people just like myself. We don’t seek vengeance against Israel. We want the return of our lands, and the struggle won’t end until our property is restored.”

Can someone tell me what it is that Christians are supposed to have in common with “Israel” that would make us favor that barbaric, vengeful nation over this Palestinian family?

Questions are surfacing about Israel’s use of tear-gas grenades, as security officials investigate the recent death of a protester at the weekly demonstration near the separation fence at the West Bank village of Bil’in. A 36-year-old woman, Jawaher Abu Rahmah, died on Saturday morning.

The medical report filed in the Ramallah hospital where Abu Rahmah was taken shows that her death was caused by respiratory failure resulting from the inhalation of tear gas.

Jawaher Abu Rahmah was the sister of Bassem Abu Rahmah, who was killed in April 2009 when Israeli soldiers fired a tear-gas grenade at his chest at a demonstration at the fence in Bil’in. Ahmed Abu Rahmah has three surviving brothers; their father died five years ago.

“My entire family is ruined,” he said on Sunday. “The whole house feels a sense of catastrophe.” He said he bears no hatred toward Israelis. “They are people just like myself. We don’t seek vengeance against Israel. We want the return of our lands, and the struggle won’t end until our property is restored.” (“Protester death shows IDF may be using most dangerous type of tear gas,” Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz, January 3, 2011)

Compare this message of Christlike forbearance and forgiveness with the message of non-forgiveness of the Pope’s elder brothers in the faith:

“Victims of ‘the Holocaust’ have not given us the right to forgive the perpetrators nor the Holocaust deniers.”

Judaism is Not the Religion of the Bible

February 17, 2007

From the book, Judaism and the Christian Predicament, written by Rabbi Ben Zion Boxer in 1966:

Pope Paul VI, in his Encyclical “Ecclesiam Suam,” pleaded for friendly relations between the Church and other faiths. Speaking of the Jews he said: “Then we see another circle around us. This too is vast in it’s extent, yet it is not so far away from us. It is made up of the men who above all adore the one, supreme God whom we too adore. We refer to the children, worthy of our affection and respect, of the Hebrew people, faithful to the religion we call that of the Old Testament.” 1

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. … whoever would seek to compare the classic Jewish tradition with the biblical world of faith and life would find some startling contrasts. … Much of what exists in Judaism is absent in the Bible, and much of what is in the Bible cannot be found in Judaism. (Page 59)

Judaism is not the religion of the Bible. (Page 159, emphasis in original)

A Lesson in Chameleon Judaism

February 9, 2007

Getting to know our “elder brothers in the faith.”

A racket as exceedingly hostile as Judaism to all outside it’s camp must by necessity cover up it’s true nature and intent to avoid alerting the gullible marks which it preys upon, and as a protective measure from the perceived backlash that would occur if the truth of it was known. The maintenance of cover for Judaism stretches the limits of camouflage, trickery, and deceit.

An example of this can be seen in the following two news stories from the past week.

The first article documents a gambit which most Christians are taken by frequently: the rabbi who joins forces with Christians to fight the moral decay which his fellow Christian civilization destroying rabbis, Masonic servants and philo-Judaic sellouts and useful idiots have caused.

Judaism Teams With Vatican to Counter Worldwide Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Push

ROME, January 3, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a move that Orthodox Jews assert marks a “new ecumenism” with Rome, a special emissary of the Rabbinical Alliance of America, representing over 850 Orthodox Rabbis, gathered in an emergency meeting with Vatican officials in Rome January 2 to discuss ways of blocking the worldwide push for homosexual “marriage” …

… In a recent press release Rabbi Yehuda Levin, a leading representative of the Rabbinical Alliance, declared that this proposed legislation marks “the latest attempt by the worldwide Homosexual network to impose their amoral values on normative society. We can no longer respond to these pressures in a piecemeal manner. A reenergized religious leadership needs to reassert its role in protecting the family—24/7 …

The second news article documents another gambit emanating from the opposite Kabbalistic pillar: the enlightened rabbi who is open to reform and accommodation of liberal trends. Liberals are frequently taken by this gambit which also serves to promote the ludicrous notion among those who have a healthy suspicion of Judaism that the rabbis have given up their hostile old ways.

Conservatives ponder policy on gay rabbis

Feb. 1, 2007

A large majority of Conservative rabbis, cantors, other professionals and lay leaders favors allowing gays and lesbians to become rabbis, according to a study released this week.

… American rabbis and cantors favor accepting gay and lesbian students by a 69 to 25 margin …

… There is a similar divide on rabbis performing same-sex commitment ceremonies, with 63% in favor and 28% opposed …

This is how Judaism ingratiates itself with those whom it seeks to overthrow and dispossess in order to enthrone itself. The methods are the same in all of it’s guises, Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Secular, Zionist, Communist, Liberal, Neoconservative, etc., etc. Any apparent contradictions or conflicts between the different forms of Judaism–which all, in essence, amount to extreme tribalism–are inconsequential when juxtaposed against the damage caused by all of Judaism’s branches to those outside the “tribe.”
