"Operation Mermaid Dawn"

September 1, 2011
The perpetual Purim Spiel of Judaism and its worship of the goddess with ten thousand names is a production on a massive scale.

“Venus Rising From the Sea”

“The Birth of Venus” (Note the mermaid appearance of the legs and feet splayed out in the shape of a mermaid’s tail fin)

Like “Operation Desert Storm” with its ‘Shock and Awe’ doctrine, a phonetic allusion to the ‘Shekinah’ of rabbinic Judaism, “Operation Mermaid Dawn” was launched on the same day of the rabbinic calendar, Purim, the rabbinic day of vengeance, based in the book of Esther.

According to Dr. David S. Dockery:

“Esther” is probably derived from the Persian word stara, meaning star. Some scholars have related it to “Ishtar,” the Akkadian goddess associated with the planet Venus. (Holman Concise Bible Commentary, p.190)

In the genocidal Zohar, “Esther” is interpreted as the “Shekinah,” the female counterpart of the male En Sof of the pagan hermaphrodite god of Judaism. To falsely maintain prestige as ‘God fearing’ ‘people of the book;’ alleged ‘descendants of Abraham’ who Christians should honor as ‘elder brothers in the faith,’ for obvious reasons the rabbis and their followers have tightly guarded this aspect of their religion:

For [rabbinic] mysticism, the greater the treasure [or shonda!], the greater the blockades to reaching it. The pardes or mystical garden in which the ‘there is’ (yesh) might be encountered, is heavily gated. For this tradition, especially in the late twelfth- or early thirteenth century, additions to the Zohar (see Ra’ya Mehemna and Tikkunei Zohar), the obvious obstacles to a theological reading of Esther become portals onto a mystical book of hiding. In them both Esther and the King are manifestations of the divine. Esther is adorned as Shekinah, divine presence, coupled with the k/King in the palace garden/Garden of Eden, signifying the end of exile. (The book of hiding: gender, ethnicity, annihilation, and Esther, Timothy Kandler Beal, p.140)

The goddess has traditionally had a strong presence in the cultural crossroads of the Mediterranean region evidenced by Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” (commissioned by the Medici banking predators and subverts of the Vatican). The prime benefactors of the the “Stella Maris,” “Our Lady of Victory” were the banking plunderers of Venice and their puppets in the Venetian Senate*. I don’t believe it a stretch to see the same old psychodrama being orchestrated once again in “Operation Mermaid Dawn” just across the Mediterranean in Libya.

Haven’t Christians had enough of these bloody schemes to get them invested in securing “The Holy Land?”

*“Non virtus, non arma, non duces, sed Maria Rosari, victores nos fecit.” This endorsement of Marian devotion from the Venetian Senate carries about as much weight as the words of Zionist banker’s puppets Newt Gingrich, Nancy Pelosi, et al with this author.

Rabbi Pulls Back the Veil on Judaism’s Paganism

July 22, 2008

Benedict’s elder brothers are coming forward to claim responsibility for the pagan undercurrent that plagues the West.

The way the issue is framed in this article is very dishonest. The “newly discovered” concepts revealed below are central to Orthodox Judaism.

God thus becomes a dual-gendered deity, bringing together all the male and female energy in the universe, the yin and the yang …

Rabbi unveils a secret of God

By Gary Stern
The Journal News • July 21, 2008

The tradition-bound Western image of a he-man, masculine God may already be thousands of years out of date, says a Westchester rabbi who believes he has unlocked the secret to God’s name and androgynous nature.

Rabbi Mark Sameth contends in a soon-to-be-published article that the four-letter Hebrew name for God – held by Jewish tradition to be unpronounceable since the year 70 – should actually be read in reverse. When the four letters are flipped, he says, the new name makes the sounds of the Hebrew words for “he” and “she.”

God thus becomes a dual-gendered deity, bringing together all the male and female energy in the universe, the yin and the yang that have divided the sexes from Adam and Eve to Homer and Marge.

“This is the kind of God I believe in, the kind of God that makes sense to me, in a language that speaks very, very deeply to human aspirations and striving,” Sameth said. “How could God be male and not female?”

Sameth, 54, the spiritual leader of Pleasantville Community Synagogue, first hit on his theory more than a decade ago when he was a rabbinical student. Since then, he has quietly pieced together clues and supporting evidence from the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament and the vast body of rabbinic literature.

His article “Who is He? He is She: The Secret Four-Letter Name of God” will appear in the summer issue of the CCAR Journal, published by the Central Conference of American Rabbis, an association of Reform rabbis.

Sameth’s theory is not as outlandish as it might seem to the uninitiated. For one thing, Jewish mystical traditions have long found levels of meaning in the Hebrew Bible beyond those that come from a literal or metaphorical reading. For another, there is a deep tradition in Jewish prayer and thinking, particularly among the so-called mystics, of seeking to reconcile the male and female elements in the universe.

Sameth’s article includes this: “What the mystics called ‘the secret of one’ is the inner unification of the sometimes competing, sometimes complementing masculine and feminine energies that reside within each of us, regardless whether we are male or female.”

The notion that God is what Sameth calls a “hermaphroditic deity” could energize the growing movement in many religious traditions to present God in gender-neutral terms, particularly in Scripture.

Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, a revered scholar among liberal Jews who has written extensively on Jewish mysticism and spirituality, called Sameth’s article “delicious, thought-provoking and wise.” Kushner is among a small group of scholars and friends with whom Sameth has shared his article in recent weeks.

“I think most people assume the God of the Hebrew Bible is masculine, but Mark, through some sound and clever research, suggests that God may have always been androgynous,” Kushner said. “This can affect the way we consider holiness and the divine, and invites us to reconsider our own gender identities, which is kind of a bombshell.”

The Hebrew name of God that is known as the Tetragrammaton – the four letters Yud-Hay-Vov-Hay – appears 6,823 times in the Hebrew Bible. Since early Hebrew script included no vowels, the pronunciation of the name was known by those who heard it.

According to Sameth’s footnotes, the name was said only by priests after the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE. After the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, the name was no longer said and the pronunciation lost.

Jewish tradition has long held that the name was too sacred to articulate. Jews have generally used Adonai, “the Lord,” in place of the Tetragrammaton. Various Christian groups have pronounced the name as “Yahweh” or “Jehovah.”

Sameth has no intention of speaking the “reversed” name of God that he has uncovered, preferring to focus on its meaning.

“I still won’t pronounce it, intentionally, as God’s name,” he said. “I’m not suggesting that anyone pronounce the name.”

Sameth became fascinated with Jewish mysticism while a rabbinical student in Jerusalem during the early 1990s. He studied with Moshe Idel, a pre-eminent scholar on mysticism, and learned how medieval Spanish Kabbalists and others uncovered mystical meanings from the Torah that had been shrouded in patterns of words and letters.

Once back in New York, at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the Reform seminary, Sameth was studying the biblical story of the prophet Nathan reprimanding King David for murder, which becomes a turning point for David. Sameth realized that the Hebrew forms of both names, Nathan and David, are palindromes, words with spellings that can be reversed.

It was, as they say, a revelation.

“It’s about reversibility,” Sameth said. “King David is changing the direction of his life, and the two key characters, their names are palindromes. What are the chances of that?”

A new zeal for biblical reversibility led Sameth to flip the four Hebrew letters of the unpronounceable Tetragrammaton. In his head, he heard the Hebrew words hu and hi. That’s “he/she” in English.

And he felt connected to a long line of Jewish mystics who have mused about the male and female coming together.

“I really believed that I had found something significant,” Sameth said. “Then I did 10 years of study to see if I could find support for it.”

Much of his article consists of weaving together clues and examples from Jewish Scripture and wisdom that offer historical context for his thesis. For example, Sameth contends that the Zohar – a medieval, mystical Torah commentary – was referring to God’s dual-gender “when it suggested that the sin of Adam was that he ruined the marriage between the feminine and masculine halves of God by divorcing himself from the feminine.”

He also writes: “We realize now that the secret was almost revealed by the 13th-century Torah commentator Rabbeinu Bachya, who makes note of every four-word cluster in the Torah whose rashei teivot, or initial letters, spell out the Tetragrammaton in reverse.”

Rabbi Jonathan Stein, editor of the CCAR Journal, was on vacation and not available for comment.

Sameth has been the only rabbi at the decade-old Pleasantville Community Synagogue, a self-described “trans-denominational” congregation that includes elements of Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist Judaism. Congregants come from many backgrounds and communities to the synagogue, which has become known for hearty singing and dancing during services.

Talking recently about his years of study to grasp the meaning of God’s name, Sameth had to stop, swallow hard and take a breath when describing what it’s like to receive sparks of insight from the great Jewish thinkers of long ago.

“It is a form of transcendence to be connected in that way,” he said.

Sameth doesn’t believe that he has stumbled on a previously unknown understanding of God’s name, but that he has been able to connect the dots in a fresh way.

Those who find meaning in his work, he said, may encounter a different understanding of God that is comforting to feminists and those on many spiritual journeys. They may also read the Torah differently.

“If this interpretation is correct, it says that the Torah is a mystical or esoteric text,” he said. “The mystics have been saying all these years that the text conceals more than it reveals. It is structured with different levels of meaning and reveals itself over time. We’re talking about one tradition that goes all the way back.”

Katherine Kurs, a religion scholar who teaches at New School University and is an associate minister at West-Park (Presbyterian) Church in Manhattan, said that the image of God presented by Sameth will have great appeal to many people who are searching for spiritual meaning.

“Mark’s unveiling is part of a mystic lineage that presents a prismatic experience of God, that says there are ways of experiencing God that contain and explode categories simultaneously,” said Kurs, who has known Sameth since they studied together almost 20 years ago. “This God is not a male or even a female but a male-female or female-male, a God that holds tension and paradox, a full-spectrum bandwidth God.”

Sameth has shared his image of a dual-gendered God with the seventh- and eighth-graders he teaches at his synagogue. He said they’ve been very receptive, which isn’t surprising because they are growing up in a post-modern age.

“As post-moderns, we’ve been conditioned to a different relationship with language,” he said. “That’s why there is all this interest now in Jewish mysticism.”

He wonders how, 2,000 years from now, people will understand the final chapter of “Ulysses,” which includes no punctuation. Will they try to add punctuation, believing that it’s been lost? Or will they grasp that James Joyce knew what he was doing?

“Joyce was playing with language, using language to play with the medium,” Sameth said. “And the Torah isn’t just about Noah taking the animals, twosies by twosies. If that’s what the Torah was all about, how could it have captivated Western civilization for 3,000 years? There had to be more.”

"Elder Brothers" Prepare for Feast Day of their Patron Saint of Genocidal Racism

May 22, 2008

The rabbis say that their racist sage, Rabbi Shimon ben Yohai died on Lag Ba’omer, 33 days after Passover which falls on May 23rd this year. ben Yohai is the rabbi who summed up rabbinism so well in his teaching, “even the best of the Gentiles should all be killed” (Soferim 15, Rule 10). Former Israeli Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu who is referenced below (among countless other rabbis) carries on the rabbinic tradition of genocidal racism today:

The whore who calls herself “Madonna” and a host of other philo-rabbinic overachiever idiots will certainly be paying their respects to Shimon ben Yohai tomorrow, a man who would have summarily executed them if given the opportunity for the simple reason that they were born to the wrong “race.” The rabbis hate “Madonna” of course, and they cannot stand that a woman, much more so a “shiksa” would study their satanic Kabbalistic texts. And note that the rabbis are too corrupt to spend the money they receive in alms to restore ben Yohai’s grave, but certainly not racist enough to turn down the “shiksa,” “Madonna’s” liberal outlay of cash for that purpose.

The fight over the saintly rabbi

By Yair Ettinger – Haaretz

“Going to Rashbi?” asks the voice in the ad on the ultra-Orthodox radio station, using the Hebrew acronym for Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai. The voice is advertising a car rental company that is offering a special deal for Lag Ba’omer.

The same question is being asked by bus companies, hotels and bed-and-breakfasts in the north, charities, small and big businessmen, beggars, politicians, admors (leaders of Hasidic sects) and movers and shakers. They know that every year more and more people “go to Rashbi,” including thousands who fly in from abroad especially for the occasion.

Last year there were 400,000 to 500,000 celebrants around the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai on the slopes of Mount Meron, and the same number is expected this year too. Up north, they say that there is no greater event on the yearly work calendar of the Israel Police.

“From year to year, the number of pilgrims increases,” says Rabbi Mordechai Halperin, the chairman of the Meron Committee, which has been overseeing the commemoration for 30 years. “Once the haredim were a minority, and the majority were people of Middle Eastern origin. Today Jews of all kinds still come, but the overwhelming majority are haredim.”

At the National Center for Managing Holy Sites, they say that that the tomb is among the most visited sites in Israel, second only to the Western Wall. Approximately one million visitors come there throughout the year. The 33rd day of the counting of the Omer is, according to the Mishnah, the day when the plague – which struck down 24,000 of Rabbi Akiva’s students during the revolt against Rome – stopped. On this day, the customs of mourning that are in effect since the end of Passover stop.

But the main hero of the event is Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai, the tanna – rabbi from the Mishnaic period – who died on that day, according to a later tradition. As the one who wrote, according to tradition, most of the book of the Zohar – the book of Kabbalah – Bar Yohai is considered the father of Jewish mysticism. There is only one mystery Rashbi did not reveal: who is responsible for his gravesite?

Different organizations have been fighting for years for control over the site. They are motivated of course not only by a yearning to cling to the righteous man’s holiness, but also by a desire to have some of the substantial amounts of money the place brings in each year cling to them.

According to Yossi Shvinger, the director general of the National Center for Managing Holy Sites, the alms boxes placed there bring in NIS 2.5 to NIS 3 million shekels [roughly 1 million USD] a year for the different charitable trusts. But because there is a serious dispute among them – which has been through the rabbinical courts and the civil courts – the site is neglected.

At the forefront of the fight are two charitable trusts, Sephardic and Ashkenazic, and each one claims to have possession of the site. Even the state has joined the fray in recent years, in an attempt to transfer the site to its possession.

All parties agree that the disputes are the reason for the site’s neglect, and also for the strange fact that the one entity forced in practice to run the Rashbi commemoration is the Israel Police.

Last week, the Supreme Court decided to hand over the site to the state’s management, at least temporarily. The judges ruled that a committee be set up to run the site headed by a representative of the state, whose members would include four members of the charitable trusts.

“This is a dramatic decision,” explains Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Western Wall and the Holy Sites, who welcomes the decision.

For the first time, the fate of the gravesite in Meron is being determined by a secular court, and will be handed over to the management of the secular state, instead of rabbinical courts and religious organizations.

“The court’s decision could lead to a dramatic change,” says Rabinowitz. “Today there is anarchy. Just recently they completed construction here of a 300 sq. meter auditorium, with no building permit and no responsibility taken for it.”

Ostensibly, the ones who should have been the first to cry out against the Supreme Court decision are the anti-Zionist ultra-Orthodox factions, who also venerate the tomb of Rashbi as the focal point of their rite. Meron, unlike the Western Wall – which some of them refrain from visiting because it was captured in 1967 by the Zionist army – was always considered a legitimate place.

But according to Shvinger, the zealous Eida Haredit is the state’s last problem. “On a day-to-day level there is full cooperation with the Eida Haredit, even though we are an executive arm of the state. They want the state to assume the management of the site.”

The one who is actually protesting is Rabbi Shmuel Eliahu, rabbi of Safed and the son of Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu, who is in charge of the Sephardic charitable trust.

“The plot where the actual grave is located belongs to us, and there’s no argument over this,” said Eliahu. “It’s a 500-year-old religious trust founded by the people of Safed during the time of Rabbi Joseph Karo. I don’t think there is any blessing in a place that the state touches. The state is clerks who come at eight o’clock in the morning and leave at five, and the fact is, it hasn’t invested a shekel in the place.

“If the state is not investing a shekel, can it then come with complaints? The sums collected in the charity boxes are not enough to cover maintenance of the site,” says Eliahu, who claims that the amount collected is only one million shekels. “The fact that this event nevertheless takes place every year is due to the merit of Rabbi Shimon. It’s a miracle.”

Last week, the Supreme Court decided to hand over the site to the state’s management, at least temporarily. The judges ruled that a committee be set up to run the site headed by a representative of the state, whose members would include four members of the charitable trusts.

“This is a dramatic decision,” explains Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Western Wall and the Holy Sites, who welcomes the decision.

For the first time, the fate of the gravesite in Meron is being determined by a secular court, and will be handed over to the management of the secular state, instead of rabbinical courts and religious organizations.

“The court’s decision could lead to a dramatic change,” says Rabinowitz. “Today there is anarchy. Just recently they completed construction here of a 300 sq. meter auditorium, with no building permit and no responsibility taken for it.”

Ostensibly, the ones who should have been the first to cry out against the Supreme Court decision are the anti-Zionist ultra-Orthodox factions, who also venerate the tomb of Rashbi as the focal point of their rite. Meron, unlike the Western Wall – which some of them refrain from visiting because it was captured in 1967 by the Zionist army – was always considered a legitimate place.

But according to Shvinger, the zealous Eida Haredit is the state’s last problem. “On a day-to-day level there is full cooperation with the Eida Haredit, even though we are an executive arm of the state. They want the state to assume the management of the site.”

The one who is actually protesting is Rabbi Shmuel Eliahu, rabbi of Safed and the son of Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu, who is in charge of the Sephardic charitable trust.

“The plot where the actual grave is located belongs to us, and there’s no argument over this,” said Eliahu. “It’s a 500-year-old religious trust founded by the people of Safed during the time of Rabbi Joseph Karo. I don’t think there is any blessing in a place that the state touches. The state is clerks who come at eight o’clock in the morning and leave at five, and the fact is, it hasn’t invested a shekel in the place.

“If the state is not investing a shekel, can it then come with complaints? The sums collected in the charity boxes are not enough to cover maintenance of the site,” says Eliahu, who claims that the amount collected is only one million shekels. “The fact that this event nevertheless takes place every year is due to the merit of Rabbi Shimon. It’s a miracle.”

More Pagan Traditions of the Elder Brothers: Birkat ha-Levanah (Blessing of the Moon)

April 1, 2008

It is still customary to rise on the tips of the toes in the direction of the moon while reciting three times “As I dance toward thee, but cannot touch thee, so shall none of my evil-inclined enemies be able to touch me.” This is followed by “Long live David, King of Israel” (also pronounced three times) and by the greeting Shalom aleikhem (“Peace be to you”) which is extended to those standing around who respond Aleikhem shalom (“to you be peace”). [Encyclopaedia Judaica, “Birkat ha-Levanah” (Blessing of the Moon)]

***

There is a theurgic ritual preserved in the Talmud, intended to ensure good fortune, called the Blessing for the New Moon.

Medieval Jewish works of astrology list a variety of human spheres that the moon affects with its waxing and waning. The ideal time for sexual intercourse is the new moon, because it would have a positive influence on a child conceived at that time. The best time to construct an amulet is determined by the phases of the moon; the same is true for performing certain medical procedures. The moon represents Malchut/Shekinah in the sefirotic Godhead [Sof. 4:5; Suk. 29a; Sanh. 42a; Zohar1: 236b]. (The Encyclopedia of Jewish Myth, Magic and Mysticism, “Moon”)

***

R. Aha b. Hanina also said in the name of R. Assi in R. Johanan’s name: Whoever pronounces the benediction over the new moon in its due time welcomes, as it were, the presence of the Shechinah … (Sanhedrin 42a)

***

The Shekhinah, or Malkhut, is the tenth and last in the hierarchy of the [Kabbalistic] Sefirot. In the divine world it represents the feminine principle, while Tiferet (the sixth Sefirah) and Yesod (the ninth) represent the masculine principle. All the elements and characteristics of the other Sefirot are represented within the Shekhinah. Like the moon, she has no light of her own, but receives the divine light from the other Sefirot.(Encyclopaedia Judaica, “Shekhinah”)

Related to the above mentioned Judaic tradition of timing the conception of children with the phases of the moon is the occult tradition of the moonchild or homunculous. Aliester Crowley and Jack Parsons of the Masonic OTO and Jack Parsons’ partner in magic ritual, the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard were obsessed with the tradition of the homunculous. As we can see, the rabbis of Orthodox Judaism were promoting this occult practice in their “holy” texts long before Aliester Crowley, Jack Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard adapted it.

The Israeli "Defense" Force’s Hasidic Snipers

January 24, 2008

The media for goys disassociates the Israeli military with Judaism making it appear to be a modern, secular organization as a means of disassociating IDF racism and brutality from the rabbinic tradition which it is rooted in. Not so in the Judaic media.

Talmud studies credited for sniper excellence

Jerusalem Post

Jan 21, 2008

While members of the Nahal Haredi Battalion have decided to abandon the yeshiva benches in exchange for an M-16 rifle in the IDF, their past study of intricate Talmudic passages is assisting them today in turning into top-of-the-line combat soldiers.

Last week, soldiers from the battalion – also known as Netzah Yehuda – came in first place in a sharp-shooting course at the Adam Training Facility near Modi’in.

Representatives of the Golani and Givati Brigades also participated in the course, during which soldiers are trained to become sharpshooters and are taught to use mathematical equations to calculate the affect wind and distance will have on their shot.

Nahal Haredi, which belongs to the Kfir Brigade and is based in the Jordan Valley, was established eight years ago as a single company. Today it is a full battalion with three companies and an elite counterterror squad.

Most of the battalion’s 700 soldiers are recruited in Israel and come from a haredi or national religious background.

A Haredi source involved with the battalion said Monday that the soldiers’ impressive results were due to their past Talmud studies, which helped them develop analytical skills.

The source said the battalion’s scores were the best obtained this past year at the facility.

“Since the soldiers are haredi, they never really studied advanced math,” the source said. “The course trainers broke their heads trying to figure out how the soldiers caught on so quickly until they realized that due to their experience studying Talmud it was a piece of cake for them to understand how to solve the complicated equations.”

Judaic Fabricated Persecution

November 7, 2007

If no persecution exists, the Judaic dialectic fails to operate. If no persecution can be instigated, it is fabricated in order to generate guilt and sympathy from outsiders and fear inside the tribe.


Police: Jewish GW Student Admits Putting Swastikas On Her Door

November 5, 2007

WASHINGTON — George Washington University officials said a Jewish student who complained about swastikas showing up on her door put them there herself.

The student lives in Mitchell Hall, where half a dozen swastikas had shown up on her dorm room door in the past several weeks.

University police set up a hidden camera. They said the girl admitted responsibility Monday.

News 4 interviewed the student last week after the fifth swastika was discovered. She did not want to be identified.

“It’s a big story,” said Jake Sherman, GW Hatchet editor. “Thirty percent of GW students are Jewish”

Reporters at the GW Hatchet newspaper have been following the story since it began. They said they learned on Monday morning that the alleged victim would likely be implicated.

They said they spoke to her twice by phone.

According to reporters at the newspaper, the student said, “I wasn’t looking to create this sort of insanity. I wasn’t looking to become a media darling. I was just looking for acknowledgment from the university that someone drew a swastika on the door.”

The student now faces disciplinary action from the school and could face criminal charges.
