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

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.

Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef on Thursday urged US President George W. Bush to free imprisoned Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.

In a letter to the US president, Yosef wrote: “One of the most important mitzvot in Judaism is redeeming captives. At this opportune time, I offer my humble request on behalf of the Jews of Zion that Your Excellency release our brother, the prisoner Jonathan Pollard, who is serving a sentence for spying on behalf of the State of Israel. His health is deteriorating.”

“Please answer my request affirmatively and you will be blessed from the heavens,” continued the letter. “The creator of the world who has accompanied you in your struggle to achieve world peace will grant you mercy and grace for many days and years of long life.”

“Who are these nations of the world? The Messiah will come and scorn them, will condemn them and with a single breath will scatter them … In the old city of Jerusalem [Arabs are] swarming like ants. They should go to hell, and the Messiah will speed them on their way.”

“It is forbidden to be merciful to [Arabs]. You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable … The Lord shall return the Arabs’ deeds on their own heads, waste their seed and exterminate them, devastate them and vanish them from this world.” (“elder brother” Rabbi Ovadia Yosef)
