The Rabbinic Foundation of Netanyahu’s Messianic Lunacy Further Revealed

May 22, 2012
During his pilgrimage to Counterfeit Israel shortly after the 2009 Israeli Gaza Massacre, the fanatical philojudaic Pope Benedict XVI and messianic lunatic Benjamin Netanyahu posed for this bizarre photo.


Prime Minster of Counterfeit Israel Benjamin Netanyahu recently visited the Mercaz Harav, the yeshiva of the first Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of British Mandate Palestine, Abraham Isaac Kook. The yeshiva gifted Netanyahu with a correspondence between his grandfather, Rabbi Nathan Mileikowsky and Rabbi Kook. Rabbi Kook taught ‘Jews’ to, “begin to shake off the dust of exile by our own efforts, through natural, historical processes … that we have a sacred duty to try to do so by whatever means are at our disposal,” and that it is “the End [redemption] that is forcing us,” a delusion that Netanyahu so clearly labors under.

In October of 2008, Pope Benedict and Cardinal Martini invited Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen, a student of Mercaz Harav and protégé of Rabbi Kook, to teach on Scripture at a synod of bishops which we commented on HERE, HERE, and elsewhere. Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen is also a member of the bilateral commission of the Chief Rabbinate of ‘Israel’ and the ‘Holy’ See’s Commission for Religious Relations with ‘The Jews’ which in 2007 recognized the Talmudic ‘Noahide laws’ and in 2012 hosted former chief economist of the Bank of ‘Israel,’ Dr. Meir Tamari (who upholds rabbinic teaching that ‘Jews’ should receive interest free loans while ‘non-Jews’ should pay usury) to speak on his “vision for a just economic order.” Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen was highly visible at the Pope’s 2010 visit to the synagogue of Rome and at the 2011 Sant Egidio “International Meeting of Prayer for Peace.” 

What specifically concerns liturgy-centric traditional Catholics is that Pope Benedict changed the ancient Holy Week liturgy as a concession to the Chief Rabbinate of ‘Israel’ of which Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen, disciple of Rabbi Kook, acts as chairman.

Netanyahu receives grandfather’s letter to rabbi Kook

Gil Hoffman – Jerusalem Post

May 22, 2012

Mileikowsky, like his grandson, was known worldwide as a Zionist orator.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu received an emotional gift late Sunday: A letter his paternal grandfather, rabbi Nathan Mileikowsky, wrote in 1933 to Ashkenazi chief rabbi Avraham Yitzhak Kook.

Ahead of Netanyahu’s Jerusalem Day speech at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva, its dean, Rabbi Yaakov Shapira, presented the prime minister with the letter in which Mileikowsky asked Kook to help clear rightist Zionist leader Abba Ahimeir, who was falsely accused of assassinating leftist Zionist leader Chaim Arlosoroff. Kook agreed to help in his response, which Shapira had framed together with Mileikowsky’s letter.

Mileikowsky, like his grandson, was known worldwide as a Zionist orator.

Shapira’s message in presenting the gift was that the prime minister should not give up his loyalty to the Land of Israel that he received from his grandfather and his father, Benzion Netanyahu, who died three weeks ago.

Netanyahu said it was emotional to receive the letter, which he had not known existed. He promised never to abandon his commitment to Jerusalem. “There are those who say that to guarantee our future we must divide Jerusalem,” he said in a reference to former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

“I say, to guarantee our future, I will make sure that Jerusalem remains our undivided capital.” Netanyahu added that when he hears world leaders tell him not to build in Jerusalem he thinks of King David, who he said “built this city before their nations existed.”

"Goy’ Sperm Yields Barbaric Offspring"

January 12, 2011

Cardinal Martini sez:

Judaism, in its study centers, has elaborated the talmudic tradition in latter-day commentaries. The church cannot ignore the results of this elaboration, as they are present in religious, legal, and philosophical texts of postbiblical Jewish literature. There are many examples of such initiatives. But for them to bear fruit, we will have to extend them to the widest possible number of dioceses, communities, and ecclesial groups, in order to dispel the clouds of ignorance (for which we ourselves are largely responsible) that have separated us in the past and set us in mutual opposition.

I am certain that a profound understanding of Judaism will be vital for the church, not merely to overcome centuries of ignorance and initiate productive dialogue, but also to deepen the church’s self-understanding. (“The Road to Jerusalem,” Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini)

I offer below, teachings from post-biblical rabbinic literature, the Sefer HaChinuch [Book of Education]. I hope that readers will extend them to the widest possible number of dioceses, communities, and ecclesial groups, in order to dispel the clouds of ignorance and to inculcate profound understanding of Judaism vital for the Church not merely to overcome centuries of ignorance and initiate productive dialogue, but also to deepen the Church’s distinction from this racial-supremacist, racial-determinist counterfeit.

Rabbi Dov Lior, like Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen who Pope Benedict XVI invited to teach at a 2008 synod, is an apostle of the father of modern racial-supremacist militant Messianic Zionism, Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak Kook.

‘Gentile sperm leads to barbaric offspring’

Kobi Nahshoni – Ynet

January 11, 2011

Israel Jewish Scene

Rabbi Dov Lior, a senior authority on Jewish law in the Religious Zionism movement, asserted recently that a Jewish woman should never get pregnant using sperm donated by a non-Jewish man – even if it is the last option available.

According to Lior, a baby born through such an insemination will have the “negative genetic traits that characterize non-Jews.”

“Sefer HaChinuch (a book of [rabbinic] law) states that the character traits of the father pass on to the son,” he said in the lecture. “If the father in not Jewish, what character traits could he have? Traits of cruelty, of barbarism! These are not traits that characterize the people of Israel” …

Lior added identified Jews as merciful, shy and charitable – qualities that he claimed could be inherited. “A person born to Jewish parents, even if they weren’t raised on the Torah – there are things that are passed on (to him) in the blood, it’s genetic,” he explained. “If the father is a gentile, then the child is deprived of these things.

“I even read in books that sometimes the crime, the difficult traits, the bitterness – a child that comes from these traits, it’s no surprise that he won’t have the qualities that characterize the people of Israel,” he added …

More on the Synod Rabbi

October 6, 2008

Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen, the rabbi selected by Benedict XVI to address a synod of more than 250 bishops, learned violent Zionist Messianic Judaism from Avraham Yitzhak Kook and his son Zvi Yehudah Kook shown here.

Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen, who Benedict XVI has invited to address the synod of bishops this week, is a protégé of the Messianic Zionist Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak Kook. Rabbi Kook can be credited with formulating the religious rationalization for the “return” of “the Jews” to “Israel” without the arrival of “the Mosiach” occuring beforehand. He taught that “the Jews” themselves bring about “the redemption” through Zionism. This teaching harmonizes with such anti-biblical concepts as “forcing God’s hand” and “as above so below.” This pantheist pagan view is illustrated in Kook’s statement regarding the Zionist state which he said is: “The foundation of God’s Throne in the world, whose entire desire is that God shall be One and His Name shall be One.” Kook wrote, “Nothing in our faith, either in its larger principles or in its details, negates the idea that we can begin to shake off the dust of exile by our own efforts, through natural, historical processes … that we have a sacred duty to try to do so by whatever means are at our disposal.”

In the mind of Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen’s mentor Rav Kook, Zionism is the vehicle through which the apocalyptic rabbinic “redemption” should be humanly created by whatever means possible.

http://www.geocities.com/alabasters_archive/revealed_end.html

Rav Kook looked forward to the final annihilation of all other nations and cultures and the exultation of “Israel” in the Zionist “messianic” age:

The sin of the murderers, wicked kings of the earth and all the evildoers of the land has been completed. The earth cannot achieve atonement for the blood spilt upon it except through the blood of the one who shed it. The atonement must come: a general elimination of all the present-day cultural machines, with all their falsehood and trickery, with all their awful filth and venom. This entire culture, which exalts itself with instruments of falsehood, must, by necessity, be annihilated from the world, and in its place will emerge a kingdom of the sacred and exalted. The light of Israel will appear, to establish the world with peoples of a new spirit. (Orot Ha-Milchama)

Rav Kook founded the first Zionist yeshiva in Palestine which Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen was trained at, the Mercaz HaRav. This yeshiva is known for its role in the formation of the ultra-racist, terrorist so-called “settler movement:”

The foundations for the religious settlements in the West Bank were forged in Mercaz Harav, whose student Hanan Porat set out to restore the Jewish settlement in Gush Etzion immediately after the Six-Day War. The founders of Gush Emunim, a religious political movement that encouraged Jewish settlement of land they believe God promised the Jews, came from Mercaz Harav after the Yom Kippur War.

Rabbi Kook encouraged his students to go out and fight for the settlements in the West Bank. He himself took active part in these struggles. (Mercaz Harav – the flagship of national-religious yeshivas,” Haaretz, 07/03/2008)

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/961727.html

Rabbi Kook was also unique in that his yeshiva encouraged military service. Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen apparently took this teaching to heart as he has a long history of militant activity in service of the terrorist Zionist state of counterfeit Israel. Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen was associated with the terrorist Irgun gang HERE. He is the pioneer of the Yeshivat Hesder (arrangement) which is to say, the terrifying combination of advanced yeshiva training in Talmudic racial supremacy with armed “defense.”

Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen here recalls his and Tzvi Yehuda Kook’s participation in the 1967 land grab:

Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen, Chief Rabbi of Haifa: “I was the last Jew to leave the Old City – wounded, on a stretcher, to Jordanian captivity. In 1967, when the war broke out, I requested of Gen. Rafael Vardi that if Jerusalem is re-conquered, I would like to be the first citizen to return to it. As soon as they conquered the city, Gen. Vardi sent a jeep to the City Hall where I was at the time, and it brought me to the Old City. On the radio in the jeep I heard the recording of Motta Gur saying ‘The Temple Mount is in our hands!’, and then we entered the Old City, where I met my father-and-teacher the Nazir [Rabbi David Cohen] and my teacher Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda HaKohen Kook, who had entered a few minutes before me.” (“Remembering the Reunification of Jerusalem,” Arutz Sheva, 06/06/05)

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/83415

Rabbi Cohen is currently active in wacko Temple Mount initiatives and has recently stated that the ban on “Jews” ascending the Temple Mount no longer applies:

Haifa’s long-time Chief Rabbi She’ar-Yashuv Cohen, who has taken part in many interfaith conferences and gatherings with Moslem religious leaders, says he’s trying to gather support for a synagogue on the Temple Mount. (“Support Sought for Temple Mount Synagogue,” Hillel Fendel, Arutz Sheva, 12/11/07)

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/124542

Rabbi Shar Yashuv Cohen, chief rabbi of Haifa and a member of the Chief Rabbinate Rabbinical Council said the ban on Jews and other non-Muslims ascending the Temple Mount no longer exists although the Chief Rabbinate has yet to officially “endorse” such visits. (“Jews urged to emphasize Temple Mount,” World Net Daily, January 28 2004)

There is much more that could be and indeed should be said about this man whom Benedict XVI has invited to address the synod of bishops this week.
