Rabbi Mayer Schiller and the Fatality of the American ‘Right’

November 19, 2010

Hasidim take great pride in the ability to trick and cajole “the goyim.” However, I suspect that some of the names listed below are somewhat aware of this fact and go along with the charade anyway bargaining that rabbinic association might afford them cover from the “anti-semite” bludgeon. Whatever little benefit they may receive is far outweighed by the confusion and misdirection suffered by their followers and undeserved prestige accrued to Talmud, Kabbalah and Khazar “Jews” among people who should know better.

Rabbi Mayer Schiller belongs to the Skver Hasidic sect in Rockland County, NY which was convicted in 1999 of defrauding federal government programs out of $30 million dollars that were then used to run Skver institutions. The Hasidic community of Rockland County, NY is legendary for fraud and sex abuse. Rabbi Schiller teaches advanced Talmud studies at Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy at Yeshiva University.

Rabbi Mayer Schiller On The Future Of The American Right

By Eugene Girin – November 18, 2010

On Columbus Day (not yet totally banned by the Thought Police as “oppressive” and “Eurocentric”) I had the privilege of attending a talk by my friend and mentor Rabbi Mayer Schiller. The Rabbi is one of the leading Jewish racial realists and a leading traditionalist luminary—especially striking given that his formal secular education ended after eighth grade He spoke to a small conservative group in Manhattan about his intellectual journey through the post-war American Right. (Interested readers are welcome to email me for more detailed information about this group).

Rabbi Schiller grew up in a Brooklyn-Queens liberal Jewish family. He remembered attending international soccer games with his grandfather who refused to stand for the anthems of Franco’s Spain and Salazar’s Portugal, but sang along to “The Internationale”—the communist hymn that was then Yugoslavia’s anthem. Like many other American Jews at that time, the Rabbi’s grandfather did not see a contradiction between his pro-communist views and the fact that he was a successful businessman who would be either imprisoned or executed under the Reds.

Rabbi Schiller says he became a conservative at the age of ten after watching a documentary about Sen. Robert Taft. His views were further developed by Goldwater’s The Conscience of a Conservative); (Rabbi Schiller later wrote The (Guilty) Conscience of a Conservative) National Review (which at that time was race-realist and opposed integration); and the John Birch Society’s American Opinion. The young Craig Schiller, as the Rabbi was known during his secular days, greeted Goldwater’s 1964 campaign with jubilant euphoria.

He was crushed when Goldwater lost—and later when, as he puts it, William F. Buckley “decided to sell out and dropped all his principles”.

At this time, Rabbi Schiller became a part of the Skver Hassidic movement in Rockland County, after he and his middle school classmates had decided to try living as observant Jews for a month.

Another major transformation occurred in the Rabbi’s life at around the same time: he discovered L. Brent Bozell Jr.’s traditionalist Catholic magazine Triumph, which featured authors like Thomas Molnar and Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn. He realized that traditional religious beliefs are an integral part of real conservatism. The Rabbi was so taken by Bozell and Triumph that he approached Patricia Buckley Bozell and offered to write a biography of her late husband.

Triumph writer Thomas Molnar (who passed away this July), a prolific author and a professor at Brooklyn College, Yale, and University of Budapest, was both a friend and a mentor (“a rebbe”) to Rabbi Schiller. The Rabbi was a young rabbinical student when he read Molnar’s seminal The Counter-Revolution and came down to Manhattan to meet him. When the Rabbi started talking about the Constitution, Molnar cut him off with the first of many witty remarks in his charming Hungarian accent: “The Constitution? Look around you, what do these Puerto Ricans care about the Constitution?”

The Rabbi remembers Molnar as a brilliant, yet realistic Catholic reactionary who considered the words “democracy” and “capitalism” to be obscenities and ridiculed Pope John Paul II for sounding like “a southern California health store owner: it’s all about love and peace! What about Heaven and Hell?”

Molnar derided The National Review as an “empty, soulless, and faceless publication” and had no respect for the neocons.

Like other traditionalist thinkers, Molnar did not have much hope for the West. To Molnar, non-Western mass immigration was a symptom, not a cause of the West’s decline. The real problem was that the West lost its will to live. When Rabbi Schiller visited South Africa in the last months of white rule to encourage Afrikaner nationalists and demonstrate his support for them, Molnar replied: “You must encourage them to do only one thing—run away!”

Interestingly, the neocons and the ADL/$PLC thought police never bothered Molnar. Rabbi Schiller says he was too far above their level of discussion—chickens do not fly high enough to attack an eagle.

Rabbi Schiller’s affinity for traditionalist Catholicism led him to establish a warm relationship with the anti-Vatican II Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). The SSPX seminary in Ridgefield, CT invited Rabbi Schiller to speak to their seminarians on numerous occasions. And every time, the Rabbi reports, he was received with the utmost courtesy and respect. Once, a seminarian even addressed Rabbi Schiller as “Father”. The seminarians held the Rabbi in such high regard that, before Archbishop Lefebvre was to consecrate several SSPX priests as bishops in defiance of Rome, they sought out the Rabbi to ask his opinion on the matter.

The late Joe Sobran was another pious Catholic friend of Rabbi Schiller. The Rabbi remembers Joe as a kind, sweet, and humble man who was a brilliant analyst yet managed to be very funny in his prose. Unlike Molnar and Rabbi Schiller, Sobran still believed in political activism. But Rabbi Schiller recognized, like others, that Joe Sobran’s heart and mind were engaged by questions of immigration and race.

With regards to Sobran’s views on the Jews and Israel, the Rabbi believes that Sobran’s criticism of the former only arose as a result of Buckley’s and the neocons’ hysterical reaction to his criticism of the latter. Sobran was shocked and hurt by the neocons’ attack on him when he dared to question the special relationship between America and Israel. This attack led to his progressively more outspoken criticism of Israel and the Jewish role in America.

In contrast to more critical obituaries, Rabbi Schiller says he will always remember his recently departed friend as a “disheveled intellectual who had a heart overflowing with love.” Rabbi Schiller’s glowing endorsement is displayed prominently on Sobran’s publisher’s website.

Jean Raspail’s novel The Camp of the Saints was another major influence on Rabbi Schiller. At the Manhattan meeting, the Rabbi talked about how Raspail’s book underlined the fact that we have a common European identity, which includes such things as “the sense of critical thought, romance, heroism, individual integrity, and the spirituality of life”. All of these were shaped by Greece, Rome, Judaism, Christianity, and the Norse lands.

Nowadays, the Rabbi commented, any sort of defense or even “public concern with the fate of European civilization is open to attacks from the thought police”.

Like Thomas Molnar, Rabbi Mayer Schiller believes that there is no hope for Western man because he “had his soul torn out” and “internalized the terror” to such a degree that he is not only afraid to speak in defense of his civilization, but is even afraid to think pro-Western, politically incorrect thoughts.

As for the nationalist parties in Europe, the Rabbi does not have much hope for two reasons.

* First, as soon as a nationalist party will get above 10-15 % of the vote, the repressive apparatus of the EU will kick in and shut it down. (Indeed, this has already happened with Belgium’s Vlaams Blok and appears about to happen to the British National Party).
* Second, nationalist movements are very susceptible to fragmentation and internal squabbles. This tragic fragmentation is due to the fact that “movements that are out of power and have little hope of achieving it are forever substituting internal feuds for the reality of real power”.

The Rabbi says witnessed this firsthand during the split of the National Front in Britain in the 1980s. He is still friends with former National Front leaders Patrick Harrington and David Kerr, whom he says have demonstrated a sense of sympathy towards the Jewish people.

On several occasions, the Rabbi visited Ulster where he attended the Twelfth Of July Unionist parade (“the last legitimate folk festival in the West and the only one without corporate sponsorship”) and met with Reverend Ian Paisley. The Rabbi jokes that his affinity for both traditionalist Catholicism and Ulster unionism presents a big dilemma during Celtic-Rangers soccer games.

But all is not lost for the West. The Rabbi said that “the doctrine of multiculturalism and political correctness is so insane and against reality that it has to be enforced by terror”. Therefore, the Rabbi asserted that, even when Western societies collapse after a long period of cultural and economic decline, there will still be remnants of religious Jews and Christians, as well as social traditionalists who will preserve Western civilization and values.

Rabbi Schiller urged the meeting to create “islands of sanity” similar to those envisioned by the French New Right, an important on influence on Rabbi Schiller’s thought, and carry the Western realm forth in our communities, homes, and hearts.

The last part of Rabbi Schiller’s speech dealt with the Jews and their relationship with the West. The Rabbi blames large-scale secular Jewish participation in the Left on the fact that when European Jews entered political life in the late 1800s, it was the Left that argued for emancipation. Therefore, secular Jews were trained for over a hundred years, to view those who had an “organic understanding and attachment to the Western realm” as a threat.

On the other hand, Orthodox Jews largely abide by a tribal morality. For most modern Orthodox Jews, this means that “it is all about Israel and support for Israel” and for most traditional Orthodox Jews, engagement with the outside world is only done to obtain benefits (government and otherwise) for their communities.

Former Israeli Chief Rabbi: "Gentiles" Exist Only to Serve "Jews"

October 18, 2010

This needs to be read in tandem with Rabbi David Rosen’s recent lie to a synod of bishops that Christians have equality in the Israeli state. Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s racial supremacist teaching cannot be disregarded as a marginal view. He’s a former Chief Rabbi of the Israeli state. He’s currently the leader of the fast growing Shas political party which holds 11 seats in the Knesset and 4 positions in the Netanyahu cabinet. He is widely regarded as a ‘gadol’ (greatest sage of a generation) of Orthodox Judaism.

Those who labor under the misconception that Sephardic Judaic tradition is somehow less depraved than Ashkenazi tradition should take note that Rabbi Yosef is a Sephardic leader teaching from Sephardic tradition.

Yosef: Gentiles exist only to serve Jews

JONAH MANDEL – Jerusalem Post

10/18/2010

The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator.

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel,” he said in his weekly Saturday night sermon on the laws regarding the actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on Shabbat.

According to Yosef, the lives of non-Jews in Israel are safeguarded by divinity, to prevent losses to Jews.

“In Israel, death has no dominion over them… 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,” Yosef said.

“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat.

That is why gentiles were created,” he added.

Yosef’s Saturday night sermons have seen many controversial statements from the 90-year-old rabbi. In August, Yosef caused a diplomatic uproar when he wished a plague upon the Palestinian people and their leaders, a curse he retracted a few weeks later, when he blessed them along with all of Israel’s other peace-seeking neighbors.

Some Perspective on the Helen Thomas Stoning

June 9, 2010

In 2008 Israeli Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger called for a final solution ethnic/religious cleansing of Gaza saying its inhabitants should be moved to the Sinai Desert where a state would be built for them paid for by Britain, the European Union and the United States. News report and video here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Calls For Religious/Ethnic Cleansing

In 2010 Helen Thomas said that Judaic people should leave land they unjustly forced Palestinians from and return to their homes in Poland, Germany the U.S. and elsewhere.

In 2008 Chief Rabbi Metzger thanked G.W. Bush for his support of “Israel” and in particular for waging an unjust war against Iraq. News report here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Thanks Bush for War On Iraq

Helen Thomas has consistently opposed the unjust, catastrophic war on Iraq.

Chief Rabbi Metzger still wields power and influence to perpetrate injustice. Helen Thomas has been fired and ostracized for standing for justice.

If we don’t stand for those who stand for justice when they’re attacked we deserve no better than this: a world enslaved by crushing rabbinic double standards and hypocrisy. I can’t imagine what encourages the rabbis more than for us to flee in cowardice as they stone our most courageous people.

Israel’s Justice Minister: Jewish Law Should be Binding

By Yair Ettinger – Haaretz

December 8, 2009

Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman on Monday said he believes Jewish law (Halakha) should be the binding law in Israel, Army Radio reported.

“Step by step, we will bestow upon the citizens of Israel the laws of the Torah and we will turn Halakha into the binding law of the nation,” said Neeman at a Jewish law convention at the Regency hotel in Jerusalem, in the presence of many rabbis and rabbinical judges.

“We must bring back the heritage of our fathers to the nation of Israel,” Neeman said. “The Torah has the complete solution to all of the questions we are dealing with,” he added.

However, Neeman’s statements during the conference were received with applauds from participants, among them Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

Other guests at the event included Likud MK Yisrael Katz, Interior Minister Eli Yishai and Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger.

Soldier sent to detention for cooking on Shabbat after cat ate his meal

Kfir brigade soldier about to eat Shabbat meal finds out a cat has ‘tasted’ their meal. Soldier offers to cook new meal, gets caught, sentenced to 20 days in detention for violating IDF rules

Hanan Greenberg
Published: 12.02.09 / Israel News

A combat soldier from the Nahshon battalion was sentenced to 20 days in detention, after he found out a stray cat “tasted” his Shabbat meal and decided to cook a new meal, despite IDF’s strict orders that forbid cooking on the holy day.

Last weekend, the soldier and his friends, who serve with the Kfir division, entered the base’s dining room, and intended to eat from a pot of cholent (meat stew) that was cooked according to the Shabbat regulations.

However, before they managed to dig in, the soldiers were surprised to discover that a cat ate out of the pot. The soldier, who refused to eat from the tainted pot, offered instead to make a light meal for him and his friends.

As his luck would have it, during the meal preparations, one of the kitchen’s staff arrived and instructed the soldier to stop cooking immediately.

Details of the incident were handed over to the battalion commander, who decided to put the soldier on trial and sentenced him to 20 days in detention for violating IDF orders.

“There are clear orders about observing the Shabbat, and even if the food was inedible there are other options to get food without desecration of the Sabbath,” said IDF sources.

The soldier’s battalion friends, who expressed discontent with the harsh punishment, claimed the soldier “did not mean to disrespect anyone; he only wanted to make a meal – a symbolic punishment would have been sufficient.”

IDF’s Spokesperson office said in response: “This is a case of a soldier which was sentenced to detention due to disorderly conduct and violation of IDF rules. The soldier has been known to have disciplinary problems in the past.”

Archaeologists Unearth Human Skulls Used in Talmudic Era Judaic Rituals

April 13, 2009

“Newly published archaeological evidence attests to the fact that ancient Jews used human skulls in ceremonies, despite a strict Halakhic prohibition on touching human remains.”

Ah, yes. But according to the same halacha, non-Judaic corpses do not defile: “R. Simeon b. Yohai said: The graves of Gentiles do not defile, for it is written, And ye my flock, the flock of my pastures, are men; only ye are designated ‘men.’”(Babylonian Talmud, Bava Metzia 114b, Soncino Edition). Nice try at absolving the rabbis of this witchcraft.

‘Ancient Jews used skulls in ceremonies despite ban’

April 13, 2009

Ofri Ilani – Haaretz

Newly published archaeological evidence attests to the fact that ancient Jews used human skulls in ceremonies, despite a strict Halakhic prohibition on touching human remains.

British researcher Dan Levene from the University of Southampton published findings in Biblical Archaeological Review about the human skulls, known as incantation bowls, some of which bear inscriptions in Aramaic.

The skulls were unearthed in present-day Iraq (formerly Babylonia) and are believed to have been used during the Talmudic era. At least one of them appears to be that of an anonymous woman.

“When I presented these findings in Israel, people told me, ‘It is not possible that this is Jewish,'” said Levene. “But it is certainly Jewish.”

Levene added that, despite going against conventional wisdom, the talisman was likely used by someone desperate, and that there have been past cases of skulls being used to ward off increased ghosts or demons.

“The fact remains that belief in demons was widespread at this time among Jews as well as other peoples,” writes Levene. “Incantation bowls are known not only from Jewish communities but from other communities as well.”

To combat demons – who cause medical problems as well as other mishaps and ills – people invoked numerous magic rites and formulas.

Gaza Massacre Fosters Race Hatred in Israeli Youth

Anti-Arab sentiment swells among youth in aftermath of Gaza war

PATRICK MARTIN – Globe and Mail

January 26, 2009

JERUSALEM — When the leader of Israel’s religious-Zionist Meimad Party recently addressed a meeting of 800 high-school students in a Tel Aviv suburb, his words on the virtue of Israeli democracy for all its citizens were drowned out by student chants of “Death to the Arabs.”

Not since the days of the now-illegal Kach party, and Baruch Goldstein killing 29 Muslims at prayer in Hebron in 1994, has Rabbi Michael Melchior heard such anti-Arab sentiment.

But that sentiment is swelling, and the controversial former cabinet minister Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beitenu party are riding the wave. They have emerged as the biggest political winners from the recent war on Gaza. Their unequivocal anti-Arab policies have never been more popular.

It was Mr. Lieberman who led the recent campaign to have Israel’s two Arab political parties banned from next month’s Knesset election. He argued that their public criticism of Israel’s assault on Hamas in Gaza constituted a disloyalty to the country as a Jewish and Zionist state.

Mr. Lieberman has long argued that all Arab Israelis should be made to swear an oath of loyalty to the country and, if they don’t, they should lose their citizenship.

The country’s highest court ruled in favour of the Arab parties, but not before the Knesset’s central elections committee voted in favour of the ban. Even representatives of the mainstream Likud, Kadima and Labour parties cast ballots supporting the ban.

“The court has effectively given the Arab parties a licence to kill the state of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state,” Mr. Lieberman said, adding that his party would not give up the fight.

Besides loyalty oaths, his party wants to exchange Arab communities in Israel for Israeli settlements in the West Bank; it says that giving up any land in exchange for peace with Arab neighbours is “fundamentally flawed” and should not be pursued; and it argues that Jordan should be where Palestinians seek to create a state.

Public opinion surveys indicate that a growing number of Israelis support this approach; Yisrael Beitenu is poised to win 16 seats in the Feb. 10 vote (it currently has 11), as many seats as Labour might win.

More importantly, the party could be a coalition partner in an expected Likud government – something that would put Mr. Lieberman in a good position to promote his agenda.

“Yisrael Beitenu’s rise, with its racist agenda, is a very dangerous trend in Israeli society,” said Mohammad Darawshe, an Arab from the Israeli town of Nazereth who is co-director of the Abraham Fund, an organization that promotes co-operation among Israeli Arabs and Jews.

The anti-Arab trend is particularly strong among the young generation, Mr. Darawshe said. “In a poll conducted in May, more than 60 per cent of Jewish high-school kids say they want to control the political participation of Arabs in Israel; they’re not ready to live in the same apartment building as Arab citizens; they don’t like to hear the sound of Arabic language; and so on,” he said. This racism “has to be taken seriously and dealt with seriously,” Mr. Darawshe said, “as must separatism in the Arab community.” A growing number of Israeli Arabs want to opt out of Israeli society, including boycotting elections, he said.

“Unfortunately, [the two trends] have common agendas; they feed off each other.”

Even Foreign Minister and Kadima party leader Tzipi Livni shocked many by saying that if people don’t like what the government is doing “they can leave.”

Overall, Israel’s Arab population, while sympathetic to the plight of Gazans, is not particularly radicalized, certainly not as it was in the early days of the 2000-2004 Palestinian uprising. Yet, as Mr. Darawshe says, anti-Arab sentiment in the country has never been greater. The Lieberman party “ultimately seeks a direct clash with the Arab citizens in Israel” he said. And he worries that “there’s no serious effort to stop it.”

The 100 people at the Yisrael Beitenu rally for English-speaking voters Thursday night in Jerusalem certainly don’t want to stop it. “It’s the clarity of it that’s so appealing,” said Yona Triestman, a thirtysomething who works helping new immigrants settle in Israel. And the message certainly is straightforward. At the end of the night, Uzi Landau, a former Likud cabinet minister now running for Yisrael Beitenu, leaned forward and wagged his index finger at the audience. “There’s just one thing you have to remember about our platform,” he said, “just one thing to tell your friends: ‘No loyalty, no citizenship.'”
