THE ‘JEWISH GOD’- CRUEL MEAN SADISTIC-MORE LIKE THE DEVIL THAN JESUS

THE ‘JEWISH GOD’–CRUEL & SADISTIC, MORE LIKE THE DEVIL THAN THE FATHER SPOKEN OF BY JESUS

After years of honest intellectual introspection and sincere soul searching – I have come to a crossroads where I must choose one of 2 paths if I am to move forward.

As such, using the same mental faculties afforded me by the same creator responsible for all the laws of science, reason, physics, and decency, I cannot conclude anything other than that the Jewish Old Testamant is indeed part and parcel of the same twisted mentality responsible for so much suffering and evil today, and is in effect a mere extension of the same Jewish mindset that created–carved if you will–a tin god out of the basest inclinations attributable to mankind that serves as a facilitator/enabler of a depraved, arrogant, self-serving evil, and greedy agenda.

If it were not for the fact that I still find it—the Old Testament–useful for research purposes, I would put it where it belongs – in the garbage.

If this Jew god described within the pages of this ‘book’ is in fact authentic – I could NEVER in good conscience ‘worship’ an entity so vicious, mean, cruel, sadistic, uncompassionate, unforgiving, and hypocritical. What the Jew god teaches me within the pages of this depraved book is the exact antithesis of what I have learned about the nature of Jesus Christ.

Having accepted and embraced the version of God the father taught by Jesus Christ I cannot but reject the Jewish god of the OT and therefore view him/her/it as a total fraud created by the sick, psychopathic, twisted, wicked nature of the Jews themselves. Karl Marx – the most wicked of all Jew demons openly admitted that “he who serves MAMMON pleases god” – because- of course – the REAL ‘god’ of the Jew IS Mammon – the monster we see created by the Jews of the OT.

The Jewish ‘religion’ is the most evil of all street gutter trash. ‘By their fruits you shall know them’ as Jesus taught, and in judging the bitter fruit of Judaism and its Old Testament one cannot conclude anything other than that it is nothing more than the ‘wrapping up’ of sharp business practices in a religious garment! Everything holy to Christians is UNHOLY to the precepts of Judaism and its followers. Their written religious practices are simply manuals for deeds considered deadly sins against Christ.

If you have the stomach for it – read in it’s entirety the Book of Leviticus.  It is a cross between endless plots for horror movies unsuitable for ANY child and most adults and a compendium of morbidly disgusting, demoralizing, cruel, bloody minutiae totally VOID of ANY teachings of anything REMOTELY moral, wise, insightful, loving, kind or meaningful to anyone but a psychopath trapped in an insane asylum. It is FILLED with EXACTLY the kind of hypocrisy and sickening ritualistic barbarisms that had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with goodness or love of God, the same senseless garbage that incited Christ to violent anger against the disgusting conduct of Jews in the Temple.

Jesus taught that we should be kind, forgiving, truthful, and compassionate, self-sacrificing, and respectful of life (I have yet to meet even ONE person who is cruel to dumb animals who was not a bully).  Feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, defending the defenseless and giving hope to those amongst us who have lost all hope—these are the qualities Jesus embodied which I strive to imitate with my finite abilities.

Lest you think to accuse me of blasphemy – take a LONG HARD CLOSE LOOK at the ‘Yahweh of the Jewish Old Testament for yourself and tell me that you cannot see what a HORRID, SADISTIC, HATE-FILLED figure who is total anathema to the image of Christ. I will NOT LIVE A LIE!  I am NOT a JEW nor do I embrace Jew ‘values’! I AM A CHRISTIAN AND UNDERSTAND THAT NO ONE CAN SERVE 2 MASTERS.

In his book of laws of the OT – the Jew-created god ‘Yahweh’ mandates his people to COMMIT GENOCIDE (1-Samuel 15;-3) — then to COMMIT FRATRICIDE (Exodus 32:  27-28)  —  then suggests CANNIBALISM (Leviticus 26: 29) — ROBBERY AND THEFT (Exodus 3:22)  — to KEEP SLAVES of neighboring nations (Leviticus 25: 44-46).

It only gets worse…

The God of the Jews teaches us to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST WOMEN and DESPISE CHILDREN (Leviticus 27: 2-8)  —- He demands ALL GOLD BE DELIVERED COVETOUSLY TO HIMSELF  (Exodus 25:3 33: 5)  —-TORTURE OF ANIMALS (Exodus: 29:20  29:36) —  Yahweh admits his JEALOUSY  (Exodus 20:-5)

AND EVEN MORE WICKED VIOLENT SICK AND TWISTED!

God caused sibling rivalry by favoring Abel over Cain, with absolutely no attempt at justification.  This act of favoritism led to Abel’s death–Genesis 4:3-5

Genesis 7:23 He intentionally kills every man, woman, and child on the planet save eight of them.

God commands Hagar to return to servanthood and bear children for her master though she does not want to.  Genesis 16:7-9

Genesis 19:23-25 God burns down a whole city (women and children included) simply because they were supposedly homosexual.

Er, Judah’s firstborn, was “wicked in the sight of the Lord” and the Lord slew him.  How was Er wicked? The Bible doesn’t give us this bit of information, only that Er was wicked in the sight of the Lord.  Genesis 38:7

Genesis 38:10 God murders Onan for refusing to commit incest with his sister in law.

Exodus 12:29–Yahweh repeatedly tells Moses exactly what calamity he will next visit upon the Egyptians if the Pharaoh does not allow the Israelites to be set free from slavery.  He then tells Moses (repeatedly) that he will ‘harden’ Pharaoh’s heart, so that he—Pharaoh–will refuse to allow the Israelites to go, thus bringing a calamity upon his own people, as well as showing him the awesome power of the Jewish God. This occurs over and over, bringing calamity upon calamity upon the Egyptian people. What is troubling about this verse is that when god “hardens the pharaoh’s heart” he is interfering with the Pharaoh’s free will and ultimately brings punishment on the Egyptians for something they are not responsible for. As a final punishment god decides to kill all the first born of Egypt. The lord reduced himself to murdering innocent kids when he could have simply freed the Israelites himself with his “omnipotent” power.

God punishes children for the sins of their fathers, unto the third and fourth generations.  Exodus 20:5&34:7

God endorses slavery. He even set up laws as to how slavery was to be carried out, and goes as far as Okaying beating them.  Exodus 21:2-6

God sanctions the selling of one’s daughter. (Exodus 21:7)  How can any being tell another to literally sell their child into slavery?

Exodus 22:18–God orders the death of witches, sorceresses and anyone who practices magic. Sadly enough, this verse was justification for the Inquisition and countless innocent deaths.

Exodus 32:27 God ordered to be killed, 3,000 Israelites for no greater crime than worshipping a golden calf.  (Not to mention that Yahweh obviously KNEW that his precious Jews had STOLEN the gold.  Stealing OK – but don’t injure my pride.

Leviticus 20:9-10 God commands death for cursing out one’s parents and death for adultery. Gee, with these types of laws the population should be almost nil by now.

Handicapped people must not approach the altar.  Leviticus 21:16-23 (great show of compassion Yahweh!)

Leviticus 27:28-29 God ordered and allowed human sacrifices.

Numbers 16:27 God buries alive Korah and his family.

Numbers 16:35 God killed 250 Levite princes who disagreed with Moses’ leadership. He was so bloodthirsty that he wanted to slay more until he was talked out of it. Later he put a plague upon 14,700 Jews who thought there was something wrong in killing 250 princes.  (HATE good! Compassion – BAD!)

Numbers 21:1-3 God utterly destroyed the Canaanites at Hormah as a favor to the Jews.

Numbers 21:27-35 God abetted Moses in utterly destroying the Amorites at Heshbon – “…the men, the women, and the little ones.”  (Can’t let all those innocent little kids live!)

Numbers 31:17-18 God commands Moses to kill all the Medianite people including children and women.  To top it off he commands that the virgins be saved for later raping by Moses’ soldiers. (Convinced this is a monster created by the sick mind of the sociopathic Jew yet?)

Deuteronomy 3:3-7 God ordered Moses’ army to “utterly destroy” 60 cities, killing all the women and children within!

Deuteronomy 7:12 God ordered the Israelites to kill all the people of seven nations.  He even adds, “show no mercy unto them”.  ( WAR WAR WAR KILLING KILLING KILLING – BLESSED ARE THE WAR MONGERS?)

Deuteronomy 20:16 God orders that the Jews kill everything that breathes in the cities that he gives them for an inheritance

Deuteronomy 23:2–A bastard can’t attend church “even to his tenth generation.” As if denying an innocent child rights to worship isn’t cruel.

Deuteronomy 7:16-24  “You must destroy all the nations the LORD your God hands over to you.  Show them no mercy and do not worship their gods.  If you do, they will trap you. Perhaps you will think to yourselves, ‘How can we ever conquer these nations that are so much more powerful than we are?’  But don’t be afraid of them!  Just remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all the land of Egypt.  Remember the great terrors the LORD your God sent against them.  You saw it all with your own eyes!  And remember the miraculous signs and wonders, and the amazing power he used when he brought you out of Egypt.  The LORD your God will use this same power against the people you fear.  And then the LORD your God will send hornets to drive out the few survivors still hiding from you!  “No, do not be afraid of those nations, for the LORD your God is among you, and he is a great and awesome God.  The LORD your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little.  You will not clear them away all at once, for if you did, the wild animals would multiply too quickly for you.  But the LORD your God will hand them over to you.  He will throw them into complete confusion until they are destroyed.  He will put their kings in your power, and you will erase their names from the face of the earth. No one will be able to stand against you, and you will destroy them all.”    (PERFECT SCENARIO FOR WHAT THE JEWS HAVE DONE TO AMERICA  )

Nahum 2:2-10   For the land of Israel lies empty and broken after your attacks, but the LORD will restore its honor and power again.  Shields flash red in the sunlight!  The attack begins!  See their scarlet uniforms!  Watch as their glittering chariots move into position, with a forest of spears waving above them.  The chariots race recklessly along the streets and through the squares, swift as lightning, flickering like torches.  The king shouts to his officers; they stumble in their haste, rushing to the walls to set up their defenses.  But too late!  The river gates are open!  The enemy has entered!  The palace is about to collapse!  Nineveh’s exile has been decreed, and all the servant girls mourn its capture.  Listen to them moan like doves; watch them beat their breasts in sorrow.  Nineveh is like a leaking water reservoir!  The people are slipping away.  “Stop, stop!” someone shouts, but the people just keep on running.  Loot the silver! Plunder the gold!  There seems no end to Nineveh’s many treasures – its vast, uncounted wealth.  Soon the city is an empty shambles, stripped of its wealth.  Hearts melt in horror, and knees shake.  The people stand aghast, their faces pale and trembling. 

Numbers 31:7-18 The Jews attack Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men.  All five of the Midianite kings – Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba – died in the battle.  They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword.  Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder.  They burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived.  After they had gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.

Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp.  But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle.  “Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded.  “These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor.  They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD’s people.  Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man.  Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

Exodus 21:7-11 When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.  

Judges 11:29-40 “At that time the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he went throughout the land of Gilead and Manasseh, including Mizpah in Gilead, and led an army against the Ammonites.  And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD. He said, “If you give me victory over the Ammonites, I will give to the LORD the first thing coming out of my house to greet me when I return in triumph.  I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”

“So Jephthah led his army against the Ammonites, and the LORD gave him victory.  He thoroughly defeated the Ammonites from Aroer to an area near Minnith – twenty towns – and as far away as Abel-keramim. Thus Israel subdued the Ammonites.  When Jephthah returned home to Mizpah, his daughter – his only child – ran out to meet him, playing on a tambourine and dancing for joy.  When he saw her, he tore his clothes in anguish.  “My daughter!” he cried out.  “My heart is breaking!  What a tragedy that you came out to greet me. For I have made a vow to the LORD and cannot take it back.”  And she said, “Father, you have made a promise to the LORD.  You must do to me what you have promised, for the LORD has given you a great victory over your enemies, the Ammonites.  But first let me go up and roam in the hills and weep with my friends for two months, because I will die a virgin.”  “You may go,” Jephthah said. And he let her go away for two months.  She and her friends went into the hills and wept because she would never have children.  When she returned home, her father kept his vow, and she died a virgin.  So it has become a custom in Israel for young Israelite women to go away for four days each year to lament the fate of Jephthah’s daughter.”

Deuteronomy 13:13-19 “Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.”

Read them ALL for yourselves in your OWN Bible.

NOW – do we see ANY resemblance to the words and actions of Christ to those of the OT Jew Yahweh?

The OT IS the Talmudic JEW ‘bible’ – filled with terror hate murder greed envy perversions cruelty sadism war destruction and fear!   Did I mention LOTS AND LOTS of war and killing and hatred?

The New Testament IS the Christian Bible – a compendium of love, hope, compassion, charity, truth, modesty, tolerance, patience, courage, diligence, and wisdom as exemplified by Jesus.

The decision to investigate these horrors has set my mind free and has not weakened my love of our Lord one iota. You do what your conscience dictates. I am a ‘NEW TESTAMANT CHRISTIAN’ and not ashamed to admit it. My ONLY regret is that I had not opened my eyes- and my love of TRUTH long ago.

I HONESTLY believe that it is the ONLY way that our arguably dying Christian faith will survive honest minds. Having been raised Catholic – I feel betrayed by the Church of Rome for not having LONG LONG ago had the moral courage and perseverance and wisdom to declare ALL things Jewish as the mortal enemy of Christian belief. I could more easily be convinced that the Talmud and the New Testament were inseparable and interdependent.

“The Jewish so -called religion is the most evil of street gutter trash.  It is nothing more than the ‘wrapping up’ of sharp business practices in a religious garment! Everything that is Holy to Christians is UNHOLY to the wicked jew. Their written religious practices are simply manuals for performing deeds considered deadly sins against humanity in general and Christ in particular.”

NOW – I see why Jesus kicked those jew ‘pawn brokers’ out of the Temple.  NOW – I see why Jesus clearly in plain comprehensive language – exposed the Jews as the “sons of Satan”.  Jesus was the ‘new wine’. The sinful wicked hypocrite practices of the Jews before He came represented the “old wine” – hence the parable – “you cannot put new wine into old wineskins”.

It is CLEAR!  The cruel violent greedy murderous entity of the OT represents ALL of the sins and evil traits so CLEARLY described by Christ as sinful and wicked. The Jews did not worship a kind, benevolent, forgiving, loving, just ‘god.  They worshiped the DEVIL – CLEARLY AND UNDENIABLY. Christ said so! The awful being described in the OT could not possible be the TRUE GOD. THOSE descriptions obviously describe a horrid Devil -like entity

“When Christ came to this world, He did not come to refine Judaism.  He did not come to improve it.  He came to take it away and replace it with the new…”  Hebrews 8:13:   I rest my ‘case’.

He did – and He was murdered for it by the Jews who had more or less created THEMSELVES in the image of the Devil whom they worshiped since they refused to hear His ‘NEW WORDS’ of truth and salvation.

In the ensuing millennia – for fear of losing control of the people who enriched their purses – with ‘old wine’ false ‘religion’ of greed lies and pretense – these wicked demonic Synagogue Of Satan Jews conspired to also destroy His followers and converts we call Christians.

The two weapons of deceit they have employed to destroy ‘AD’ Christianity were – the Old Testament – and in more modern times – the Hollohoax industry.  Both play on our superstitions/ fears – created guilt – and general ignorance and or the lack of understanding of the messages and lessons of the NT and Jesus.

I defy you to find even so many as one in a HUNDRED Americans – even self-professed so-called Christians -who have even read John 8;44 – yet it is without doubt one of- if not THE most profound and profound utterances of our Lord Christ.  You will NEVER hear this momentous and powerful message shared in ANY modern false war-mongering ‘Christian’ Church (Synagogue of Satan)

I am totally and intellectually convinced that IF every American man woman and child had been required to read this most significant condemnation of the murderous criminal jews and their filthy lies – we would be today – a prosperous vibrant world leader – loved and respected by all freedom loving people on earth and enjoying the blessings of a true Christian nation – instead being a  criminal Jew occupied land of shallow witless  greedy pleasure seeking I-Pod Stupid Bowl NFL imbeciles – destined to shortly end up on the ash heap of history.

32 thoughts on “THE ‘JEWISH GOD’- CRUEL MEAN SADISTIC-MORE LIKE THE DEVIL THAN JESUS

  1. Joe you have reached what we call an ephiphany. The OT god of the Jews is NOT the God Of Jesus. People criticize my faith, Islam, but we call God the Merciful, Compassionate, and 97 other names worthy of a caring, just God. The OT god was once described by an author, and I double checked to make sure he was right, and he was. The god of the OT dwells in darkness, hoardes gold and silver, breath like fire, wings, mighty roar, taste for young Midinite virgins, and so on. That description fits a dragon! And every one of those traits are attributed to Yahweh, the so-called true god. But look at the name Jesus calls out to on the cross. That is not Yahwehs’ name He utters. In Aramaic, the tongue Jesus spoke, it is Elah or Eli when shortened. Aramaic was a forerunner of Arabic. Jesus called them devils, vipers, and Satans children repeatedly, and He was not just namecalling but identifying them and their god.

  2. In five books of the OT , God constantly reprimands the Jews for their evilness and disregard for His Commandments,
    until finally He takes away HIs land of milk and honey, and tells them that they and their generations to follow will wander wilthout a land of their own. So how can they still be His chosen ones? After urging the Romans to crucify Jesus, His Son, how can God still consider them as His chosen ones….

    When Jesus gave the Commandments to Moses that was the start of the new Covenant—Christianity….Christianity brought man out of the dark age of slavery- gave him human dignity and freedom…..

    When Spain threw out the Jews in the 15th century, a group of Rabbis went to the Sanhedrin, the highest judicial council
    of the ancient Jews,. The Rabbis were told to infiltrate, divide and destroy….that they have been doing ever since.

  3. Joe,

    Another excellent article.

    Your goal is to create compact and highly digestible parcels of information to arm truth soldiers so that they might spread it. The thinking of a military man. This is what we need. If 10% of people in this “movement” had half your passion and strategic thinking we would be nearing the final battle with these beasts now instead of just trying to get past level 1.

  4. Well said Joe. I always intuitively knew the entire OT is a pile of Jewish rubbish, mainly because I am someone who questions everything by nature. In fact I don’t really practice any organized Christianity, just because I believe the church has been an epic failure at teaching their flocks about the evil of Zionism destroying America and the planet. They only care about whether queers can get married. These Christian retards say blindly follow your govt, pay your taxes to Lucifer, and send your kids to die in phony trumped up wars based on a false flag attack.

  5. Before my father died in 2002 even though I’m not a practicing Christian I tried to talk to him about life after death and Jesus, he once told me in the 70’s that the bible was just a bunch of fairy tales. He was a good man but he wasn’t comfortable talking about religion so I didn’t press it. A couple of weeks later my mother mentioned to me that he had told her he didn’t appreciate me bringing it up. He’d been suffering from congestive heart failure and had been in and out of the hospital for a couple of years and then finally at the end of 2002 my mother put him in a hospice and let the process of dying begin.

    I was against it and protested to have him put in the hospital once more, but I feel like she was tired of having to deal with it and was ready to begin her life without him… It wasn’t my call. When I arrived I tried to get him to eat but he wouldn’t. There we’re no I.V.’s only morphine was given to him. He didn’t speak very much, we all told him that we loved him and he said he loved us. The last words he spoke we’re “Steve I’ve” and it was like someone had covered his mouth and wouldn’t let him finish the sentence. Three days later he died and I was the only one there with him. He was 75 years old and had fought in Korea.

    I believe in life after death but I don’t trust organized religion, especially after becoming Jew wise. I respect you and Brother Nathanael and believe you to be sincere. I see it like we come from our mother, the umbilical cord is cut, and when we die the silver cord that connects our spirit is cut and we go on to what, I do not know. I must admit though I do pray most everyday but it seems to be in vain.

    “Remember him – before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:6 – 7)

  6. You are not alone. I too was brought up in the Catholic Church and came to the same conclussions based on the same facts. You did a great job of pointing out the obvious that for some reason is never clearly seen through the veil. I hope you also do not neglect what is in the Sacred Koran. There is more to Jesus than just what we have been allowed to learn in the West with only the highly edited Bible. Issa is Jesus the Christ. As a way of getting around the word Christian I consider myself an Issaian. Because “Christian” has been so heavily corrupted with the incorporation of the Old Testament in the Bible and a long history of abuse against Christ and his teachings it has lost the meaning it once had to me. I truly believe the lesson of the Old Testament is lost somehwere in the translation and interpretations. The OT is a story of a wicked people who refuse to follow the God of Creation. Their god is Satan and their religion refelcts this.

  7. People often find it hard to reconcile the brutality in the OT with the love and forgiveness inf the NT, so they figure that the God of the OT must be a different God from the God of the NT. They’re wrong. The Bible states that God changes not. He was no less loving in the OT than He is today, but Israel had a lot of racial enemies at that time who were out to destroy them. That means they had to go to war and often, and war is never less than cruel and bloody — but sometimes it’s a necessity. Many of Israel’s enemies were Jews, i.e. Edomites, Canaanites, and related peoples. These are the self same people who are destroying white Christian civilization today. They say they are Jews when in fact they are the synagogue of Satan, imposters masquerading as God’s chosen people. The Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Nordic, and kindred peoples are the true Israelites of the Bible. The Jews were never Israelites. They are a cursed people with satanic DNA whom God has promised to wipe off the face of the earth. That is an unpalatable truth for people who like to think of God as a wholly and solely a God of love, but the Bible also says that God hates His enemies and has indignation toward them forever. Christ Himself said that when He returns, those that refuse to worship Him will be slain. The Bible is a book written for the white Adamic race. It is these people whom God loves and for whom Christ sacrificed Himself. Christ stated that He came ONLY for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. He didn’t come for the Jews, who were and are His and our mortal enemies. Nor did He come for the Chinese, Indians, Sudanese, or any non-white race that you care to name. This is why you won’t find any epistle to non-whites in the New Testament. Scripture tells us that Christ came in the likeness of sinful flesh. The only flesh that had sinned was the Israelites, for they were the only people to whom the law was given. Our God is the God of the Bible. The Jews’ God is Satan.

  8. This article saves you tedious study of the OT and it reflects the state of the art as far as highlighting the differences between Jewry
    and Christianity is concerned. Do not make the mistake to believe that Christianity is the same as the Roman Catholic church even
    though, from the point of historic continuity, this would be tempting and ideal. Christianity is represented by those who believe in
    the messge of Jesus and the NT and this may encompass a multitude of religious groupings such as Anglican and Lutheran Protestants, the orthodox churches of the East (the European East) and others. The reason why traditional church organisations
    must be approached with care these days is, because the Jew has been active in all of them, either directly or through agents, and
    his purpose is (whatelse) to deflect people from their natural aims and activities and twist their minds to best suit his purposes. Whilst it is clear
    from the content of the OT and the NT that Christians and Jews must be in eternal opposition to each other like God and Satan the
    reality is that more and more church leaders of different persuasion are trying to convince us that we are all Jews, we are all praying
    to the same God and since that God has decided to regard the Jews as his chosen people it would be best for us if we would also
    regard ourselves as Jews or, if that`s not possible, we should at least try to be good Christian Zionists and support the aims of the Jews. Well, these
    aims are listed up in the OT and they are very different to those listed in the NT, which carries the message of Chrisitanity. The church leaders, who thus help to subvert and sabotage our cultural and religious identity should be forced from morning to night time to watch Israeli TV programmes in which Jesus, the
    founder of ther church, the founder of their belief-system, is ridiculed and insulted in the vilest manner. This goes so far as saying
    that Jesus should be boiled in his own excrements for all enternity and that the goim has been created by God like cattle to be
    the servant of the Jew. And these assertions are by no means antiquated historic clap trap to be found only in dusty talmudic
    scriptures, no, these assertions are contained in books published in Israel today and these assertions can be heard repeated in or on the Israeli media this very moment if you like. Thus follows my second conclusion: Those Christian church leaders, who preach friendhsip and association with the Jew schould be placed in a rural orthodox Jewish village in Israel and be requested, incognito, to start
    preaching the message of Jesus. In such Jewish environment it is doubtful they would live to experience the sun-set of the same day. I suppose if this were a realistic prospect, a realistic consequence of false preaching, the false preaching would stop very quickly and people could feel well again in their church organisations without having the feeling of being manipulated by false phropets or
    provocateurs. Having said that I remember that Joe Cortina said somewhere in his article that the OT does not sound like a religious manifesto, but rather like a polical programme. There, Joe, I think you are wrong. It is a mafia codex , which you have examined,
    not a religious and not a political code, just a mafia script. As an American with possibly an Italian background you might well know
    how, in WWII, the Jewish leadership of the US has sought contact with the American mafia to help generate contacts to the Italian mafia so that all three together could support the fight against the heart of Christian Europe. And Joe, was it not Mayer Lansky, who
    entered the American-Italian Mafia, to turn it into a Jewish mafia? There is no difficulty (save space) to list more examples of the
    mafia like intrusion of the Jews into varous sections of the fundamentally christian societeis of Europo and North America. Taking account of that and of the textual meanings of the OT the mafia connection offers itself compellingly. Also Joe, I think you touched
    only marginally on the pedophile connection of the OT and the 3 year old girls, which the Jewish “religion” allows to be abused by
    lustful Jewish church members – whereby it`s not really important whether you call it OT or Talmud or whetehr you give the medium another name, which the Jew uses to spread his madness and that of his God by name of Satan, which, as stated, includes screwing up and/or
    cutting the throats of 3 year old girls. I have noticecd that our mutual friend Bro Nat seems to see this subject in a slightly different
    way as can be seen or re-read in exhcanges I have had on his site. I am reminded of a German saying in this context “Die Wege
    des Herrn sind unergründlich”, which means about as much as “The aims and purposes of the Lord may not at all times be understood by everybody”:

  9. You’re spot-on Joe. Something happened during OT times and then the Jews made up their horrid stories around them. Not only is their god (devil) made up, but the stories about conquering some city or nation in the name of their devil and receiving divine (wicked) help in doing it because they were good Jews, is probably made up as well. The Egyptians couldn’t stomach the Jews, so they got rid of them or some Egyptians joined the Jews and the Jews then made up their lies about their devil punishing the Egyptian nation because the Egyptians did what Americans are about to do.

  10. hi joe, heres wishing you and your family a peaceful and truthful new year. do a search on Waraqah ibn Nawfal. you will be amazed.

    peace

  11. Most of the stories in the OT have been “borrowed” from much older sources, and spun with the usual perveted, sick & twisted style of the Jews. Paul reminds us in the Epistle to Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. Paul was a Pharisee and knew the stories told were forged or just utter bs. In the Encyclopedia Judaica, volume 9, the Jews admit that it was Ishmael, not Isaac, who was chosen for the OT sacrifice. I have found that by reading THEIR written material, you can dig up things such as that, proving what we are told is counter to what lies at the heart of the matter.

  12. veritas6464, you goddamn-idiot, you owe me 10 push-ups. Until you give me my push-up for being such a fucking moron, assume the dying cock-roach position, NOW. Joe, not having been in combat myself, outside of Hidalgo county that is, how did you deal with ass-holes like veritas6464? Put her/him/it on “point?”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galilee “Galilee”

    In Roman times, the country was divided into Judea, Samaria, and Galilee, which comprised the whole northern section of the country, and was the largest of the three regions. Herod Antipas, son of Herod the Great, ruled Galilee as tetrarch.

    The Galilee region was presumably the home of Jesus during at least 30 years of his life. The first three Gospels of the New Testament are mainly an account of Jesus’ public ministry in this province, particularly in the towns of Nazareth and Capernaum. Galilee is also cited as the place where Jesus cured a blind man.

  13. Never heard of the book of Nahum before or any quotes from it, but when I read
    Nahum 2:2-10 For the land of Israel lies empty and broken after your attacks, but the LORD will restore its honor and power again.
    That is pure Zionism. When they took over Palestine they claimed it was a land without people for a people without a land.
    And then
    Shields flash red in the sunlight! The attack begins! See their scarlet uniforms! ……….. The king shouts to his officers; they stumble in their haste, rushing to the walls to set up their defenses. But too late! The river gates are open! The enemy has entered! The palace is about to collapse!
    Red shield means Rothschild of course. The scarlet uniforms may be a reference to Communism in our time, or maybe the Vatican, and the rest covers every country the Jews have ever infiltrated. It currently seems to refer to the US.
    As for why the Catholic Church didn’t teach us about the Jews I would hazard a guess that Jews were part of the Papacy right from the start. I mean Jews started it and the religion was completely chaotic before Nicaea.

    Obadiah 1:18 You are one of those Christians in total denial. You refuse to accept the truth even though it’s staring you in the face.What was it about “Can’t put new wine into an old wineskin”?

  14. Hallo, Sisters and Brethren in Jesus Christ. That’s why Jesus called their leaders “Ye are from the Father the devil, he was a liar and a murderer from the beginning, the gospel of John 8:44. And in Revelation 2:9 Jesus depicted them as “”the synagogue os Satan”” and HE stated clearly: if they pretend to be “Jews” they DO lie, bcause being the Synagogue of Satan, they can not be jews. And in Revelation 3:9 Jesus is repeating His verdict.

    Further more: In Revelation 16:13 -14 Jesus is predicting for the End-Time, a world-rulership by three unclean sprits of the devils, and everybody with open eyes and ears knows that since hundred Years mankind is held in the stranglehold of these three satanic forces: Capitalism, Kommunism and Zionism. All three are utmost extreme evil, since they have staged 237 wars worldwide in the last 100 years and killed summarily 2,4 Billion inocent people (including two billion unborn ones – so called “abortions”) In Russia they have murdered during their tyranny (from 1917 till 1989) according to Jüri Lina, in his book: Under the Sign of the Scorpion, 145 000 000 (hundred-fourtyfive million) Russian Christians, destroyed 36 000 Churches, killed 72 000 Priest and 82 Bishops and robbed gold and golden artifacts from the churches valued today about four billion dollars. And the Leaders of these three uncleans spirits of Satan were all without one exception: godless, ex-talmudic Khasars who are pretending to be “”Jews””.

  15. anyone wants to know the truth what happened between moses and his people? read the first chapter of the Quran. it will explain it to you so simply everything will fall into place. its called surah bakarah, the cow. remember how moses’s people worshipped the cow when he went to the mountain? well its explains their evil ways too.

  16. “What we have seen in the World is the emergence of an organized revolutionary minority of Trillionaire JEW Bankers whose real aim is the destruction of democratic parliamentary government and the installation of a One World Government communist military dictatorship”.
    Snowy Smith 2012

  17. “the Jewish Old Testamant is indeed part and parcel of the same twisted mentality responsible for so much suffering and evil today” carried out by so-called Jews, Chjristians, Atheists and apostates alike,…”

    But, the monumental truth is that behind all this is THE AMERICAN ANGLO-SAXON EMPIRE that has shared the world between them, with partners like China, Russia, Japan and now their biggest slave client-state – India! Israel is just their biggest military base in the Middle East!

  18. EZRA
    &
    THE BLOODLINE

    Racism was invented
    By the Jewish Priest Ezra!

    Ezra & Hitler are in total agreement

    “it was against the will of the Eternal Creator. . .Nations that make mongrels of their people or allow their people to be turned into mongrels sin against the Will of Eternal Providence.”
    Mein Kampf, p. 186 . . . p.162

    The Book of Ezra is the Mein Kampf of the Bible

    In 587 B.C. Jerusalem was conquered by the Babylonians. The town and the Temple were razed to the ground and the Jewish people were exiled to the land of their captors. But fifty years later Cyrus, King of Persia, conquered the conquerors and established his own rule in Babylon. He was well-disposed toward the Jewish people living there and issued an edict allowing them to return to their own country. But not everyone wanted to go.

    Although the siege of Jerusalem had been brutal, once the people were settled in their land of exile, living conditions kept improving. Ultimately, they were given the opportunity to become contributing members of the Empire and encouraged to retain their own Jewish culture. By the time Cyrus came to power, the majority of Jewish people did not want to exchange a prosperous lifestyle for the uncertainty of returning to a country that had been lying in ruins for half a century. But they were quite generous in their financial and moral support of those who were willing to go back and resettle their homeland.

    When the first group of exiles arrived back in Jerusalem, circa 537 B.C., they found things were even worse than expected. The countryside was desolate and rebuilding loomed as a monumental task. And other problems faced the returnees. They had come back ready to reclaim Jerusalem and institute their own agenda. But when they arrived they found that the ruins of the city were inhabited by the descendants of poor peasants who had hidden out in the hills during the Babylonian siege. They had escaped capture while the wealthy merchants, landowners and priests who had substantial lands and other holdings, had been rounded up and deported by their conquerors.

    During the years of Exile, the peasants left behind had made a life for themselves that centered around Jerusalem. They built homes for their families and for many years had eked out a living in the barren countryside. And during those years, the peasant survivors of the southern kingdom of Judah had made common cause with those left alive after the takeover of the northern kingdom of Israel. [1] The bitter rivalry that had once divided the Jewish tribes had been healed by the misfortunes they suffered and by the need for mutual aid if any of them were going to survive.

    But those who first returned from Babylonian Exile, under the leadership of the High Priest Jeshua, had nothing but contempt for those who had been left behind. They were considered ignorant; the dregs of society, because without the leadership of the exiled priests and scribes, they would not have properly fulfilled the religious rules and regulations that were supposed to govern daily life. Therefore, they were ritually unclean and were to be shunned. Of course, ritual impurity can be remedied over a period of time by observing every jot and title of the Law but this remedy was not applied to those who had been left behind. Their impurity stemmed from intermarriage with mixed-race Jews. They had mixed the pure blood line of Abraham through intermarriage with those of impure lineage and their offspring had been contaminated.

    So, although the resident survivors around Jerusalem thanked God for the return of the Exiles and wanted to help them rebuild the Temple site, they were not allowed to do so. They presented themselves to Jeshua and other leaders saying

    “We would like to build with you, for we seek your God as you do and we have sacrificed to him since the time of Esarhaddon” [2]

    Their offer was refused, they were unworthy; unclean. They reacted to this bigotry by harassing the returnees as they undertook the reconstruction of the Temple.

    But despite various problems, the altar was reestablished and dedicated to God by a massive slaughter of animals that provided a great feast for the people. In a total rejection of the oracles of the Latter Prophets, who condemned killing animals in the name of God, one hundred bulls, 200 sheep, 400 lambs and 12 goats were sacrificed and slaughtered on the altar site. [3]

    In the generations that followed, the descendants of those who returned from exile married, raised families and centered their religious life around the altar at Jerusalem. And for those who married other pure-blooded Jews there were no problems. However, some of them were marrying those whose bloodlines had been tainted by intermarriage. The religious leaders were very disturbed by this trend, but were unable to do anything about it until a priest named Ezra arrived in Jerusalem.

    Ezra was a scribe as well as a hereditary priest. As a scribe he was trained in the minutiae of religious law and was qualified to translate and interpret those laws. In Babylon he had been the equivalent of a minister for Jewish affairs at the Persian Court and he used that position to secure letters of authority from the king. He had himself sent to Jerusalem as a political and religious leader, empowered to collect money, appoint judges and punish with death, banishment, confiscation or imprisonment any Jew who did not obey the laws he expounded.

    Armed with that power, Ezra arrived in Jerusalem almost a hundred years after the first returnees had come back from Babylon and lost no time in instituting a policy of ethnic cleansing. He, and other like-minded leaders, were determined to get rid of those half-breeds who were the offspring of several generations of unions between pure-blood Jews and the impure resident survivors.

    In ancient Israel mixed marriages had been allowed, but eventually they came into disfavor. Foreign women were blamed when Jewish men failed to fulfill their religious obligations or fell into idolatrous worship. The reaction against such marriages was an attempt to avoid influences that might dilute or corrupt Judaism.

    However, those foreigners who were willing to renounce their pagan worship and follow all the requirements of Jewish law and worship could be accepted into Judaism.

    But Ezra introduced a new element into his ban on intermarriage. The issue was not whether or not a spouse was willing to worship the one God; beliefs did not matter. The issue was whether or not a person was a pure-blooded Jew. For the first time, one group of people viewed other groups as a contaminating influence – – a source of racial or ethnic impurity – – regardless of how they lived or what they believed.

    Ezra began his purge with a lengthy speech-prayer that he gave in the Temple court-yard. For the benefit of God and the assembled people, he gave a synopsis of Israelite history and then told the Lord how angry He was going to be about what was taking place in the present. Because the chosen people had intermarried “with wicked people. . . You will be so angry that You will destroy us completely and let no one survive.”[4] Not surprisingly, the assembled men were terrified by the message that God would completely destroy them if they did not cast off their contaminated wives and children. And this time no one would escape; Abraham’s descendants would be wiped out.

    This public speech-prayer, threatening the extermination of an entire people, is universally praised by religious spokesmen who echo the sentiments of the Inter-national Bible Commentary:

    “Ezra’s prayer is one of the most moving of all the prayers which are recorded in Scripture.”[5]

    Having established the threat of annihilation, Ezra took the next step in implementing his purge. He issued a proclamation demanding that all the Jewish people come to a meeting in Jerusalem. By now they were scattered about the countryside and under ordinary circumstances many would not have bothered to come. But this was not an ordinary situation; Ezra used the extraordinary powers given to him by the Persian King to insure full attendance.

    “A proclamation was issued throughout Judah and Jerusalem for all the exiles to assemble in Jerusalem. Anyone who failed to appear within three days would forfeit all his property. . .and would himself be expelled for the assembly.”[6]

    Under the impetus of that threat, all the Jewish males assembled in the Temple square. There they were given details of the purge that was about to take place. They were to turn in any members of their family who were tainted by non-Jewish blood. They were informed that committees would be set up to investigate all reports of the existence of such undesirables. There was no way to avoid detection. There was no escape.

    “Ezra the priest selected men who were family heads, one from each family division and all of them designated by name. On the first day of the tenth month they sat down to investigate the cases and by the first day of the first month they finished dealing with all the men who had married foreign women.”[7]

    It took three months for this systematic purge to identify all the undesirables.

    Not only did Ezra demand that the foreign wives of Jewish men be cast off, he demanded that all the children of such marriages be sent away. His edict was multi-generational. Children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were to be cast off, never again to see their families.[8] And wives, who had been with their husbands only a few years, as well as those who had spent a lifetime with their mates, must also be sent away. No one whose blood was contaminated with non-Jewish blood could stay.

    Of course, there was no place for most of them to go. In that day and time women, children, the frail and the elderly, had no way to sustain themselves. The homes from which they were banished were the only homes they had known. They were sent out into a hostile environment with no resources and few skills. For many of them, Ezra’s proclamation was a death sentence.

    The fate of women and children without male protection was well-known among the Hebrew people. The Prophets had repeatedly spoken of God’s concern for the oppression they suffered at the hands of their own people and the oft-repeated Psalm 146, clearly told of the Lord’s special concern for them;

    “(God) protects the strangers who live in our land and helps widows and orphans. . .he judges in favor of the oppressed.” [9]

    Ezra’s threats of retribution forced the acceptance of his purge in spite of such demands for the care of the powerless from both the psalmist and the prophets. Unless the assembled men did what he demanded, they themselves would become outcasts; they would lose their property and be banished from their homes. Faced with such drastic consequences, it is not surprising that the Bible reports only four of the assembled men protested Ezra’s demands.[10]

    In Ezra’s time there was no precedent for the kind of massive purge he wanted to institute and the men of Israel may not have been aware of the extent of the suffering he was about to unleash on so many people. But it is difficult to understand how Ezra’s policy of ethnic cleansing can continue to receive religious endorsement in a post-Holocaust world. Yet modern Christian scholars continue to endorse Ezra’s purge because the scribe who wrote the biblical account claimed that “God’s holy people had become contaminated” by marrying those whose bloodlines were not pure.”[11]

    Consequently, modern commentators have turned the victims, who were banished from their homes into the villains. Ezra is applauded for his courage in demanding that the national and religious purity of his people be maintained and those who lost everything in the purge are seen as transgressors who had taken part in what the Evangelical Commentary calls “the reprehensible sin of intermarriage.” [12]

    And a Catholic scholar notes that in Ezra’s “concern for racial purity” can be seen as a religious reason for the banishment of undesirable children and wives. Another scholarly note says

    “if (Ezra’s) reforming measures seem severe, it is because his zeal was great, and the need to protect his community, urgent.” [13]

    Because all the protagonists in the story of Ezra’s purge were male and because Bible scholars are usually male, some people of faith have hoped that with the inclusion of female exegetes a more comprehensive and compassionate understanding of the scriptures might emerge. Unfortunately, the publication of The IVP Women’s Bible Commentary has momentarily dashed those hopes. [14] Typical, is the comment regarding Ezra and his emphasis on the need for a pure lineage:

    “(Ezra’s) radical emphasis on pure lineage. . .was timely and vital for the continuation of pure religion.”

    The commentator goes on to claim that had he not instituted this ethnic cleansing, the Jewish people would have become extinct.

    Jewish apologists, as well as their Christian counterparts, continue to insist that Ezra’s purge was an absolute necessity. Rabbi Bernard M. Caspar, Dean, University of Jerusalem, writes that

    “the great problem which faced Ezra upon his arrival in Jerusalem was the danger of assimilation for the newly established community. During the period of the Babylonian exile. . .a small nucleus of original Israelites from the North of the country were now mixed with other (impure) colonists not only in blood but also in cultural standards.” [15]

    This contemporary support for the divine right of a people to rid themselves of the culturally and ethnically undesirable is not limited to religious spokesmen. A best selling, 20th century author, supported Ezra’s concept, writing that

    “The loss of racial purity will wreck inner happiness for ever. It degrades men for all time to come. And the physical and moral consequences can never be wiped out.”

    He also said that the result of mixing a pure-blooded people with those who are mixed, always results in the degeneration of the pure-bred. And although he did not claim or affirm the biblical claim that intermarriage with undesirables would ultimately lead to the destruction of an entire people and their culture because

    “it was against the will of the Eternal Creator. . .Nations that make mongrels of their people or allow their people to be turned into mongrels sin against the Will of Eternal Providence.” [16]

    His book became just as popular as the Bible. By 1933 Mein Kampf was alternating with the Bible for the number one spot on Germany’s best seller list. In his book, Adolph Hitler did not introduce a new concept to the people of Germany; he built on the foundation of the Judeo-Christian acceptance of Ezra’s purge as a necessary and godly undertaking.

    Although horrified by the Holocaust, traditional Christians and Jews continue to endorse the purge that was instituted by Ezra. And as long as they attribute that ancient, man-made reign of terror to God, Western civilization is threatened by a foundational belief that ethnic cleansing can be a godly undertaking, necessary for the survival of a nation. Unless it is repudiated, this potentially destructive belief, usually concealed beneath the surface of everyday life, will continue to erupt in terrible ways that cannot be predicted.

    Ezra Creates His “Law of Moses”
    Ezra is credited, by Jewish tradition, with the compilation of the books of the Old Testament. In this ancient apocryphal account of 2nd Esdras, or 4th Ezra, the books of the Old Testament are not only said to be put together by Ezra, but actually “channeled”, or written by him! If this account is not historically accurate, it is at least allegorically correct in its assertion that some redactor, about the time of Ezra, wrote down a hodge podge of religious traditions and cultic practices and called it the “Law of Moses”.

    In this account Ezra laments that there is no existing Law, for all copies of it have been burnt or destroyed upon his return to the land of Palestine. His solution to this situation is to simply write a new one. Ezra had not been raised with the Law, for he and all his generation had grown up in exile in Babylon where animals were sacrificed as a form of worship. Had his generation possessed copies of the true Law during their exile, Ezra would not have said that no copies had survived. With no firsthand knowledge of the ancient Law of Moses, Ezra was forced to write a new and different Law based on his own experiences in exile. Ezra called this new law the “Law of Moses”. Ezra’s “new law” was no doubt based partially on older oral tradition, and perhaps even included scraps of earlier written material, but its main core of animal sacrifice was most certainly not part of the original Law of Moses.

    Apocrypha Account of 4 Ezra 14,15

    [1] On the third day, while I was sitting under an oak, behold, a voice came out of a bush opposite me and said, “Ezra, Ezra.”
    [2] And I said, “Here I am, Lord,” and I rose to my feet.
    [3] Then he said to me, “I revealed myself in a bush and spoke to Moses, when my people were in bondage in Egypt;
    [4] and I sent him and led my people out of Egypt; and I led him up on Mount Sinai, where I kept him with me many days;
    [5] and I told him many wondrous things, and showed him the secrets of the times and declared to him the end of the times. Then I commanded him, saying,
    [6] `These words you shall publish openly, and these you shall keep secret.’
    [7] And now I say to you;
    [8] Lay up in your heart the signs that I have shown you, the dreams that you have seen, and the interpretations that you have heard;
    [9] for you shall be taken up from among men, and henceforth you shall live with my Son and with those who are like you, until the times are ended.
    [10] For the age has lost its youth, and the times begin to grow old.
    [11] For the age is divided into twelve parts, and nine of its parts have already passed,
    [12] as well as half of the tenth part; so two of its parts remain, besides half of the tenth part.
    [13] Now therefore, set your house in order, and reprove your people; comfort the lowly among them, and instruct those that are wise. And now renounce the life that is corruptible,
    [14] and put away from you mortal thoughts; cast away from you the burdens of man, and divest yourself now of your weak nature,
    [15] and lay to one side the thoughts that are most grievous to you, and hasten to escape from these times.
    [16] For evils worse than those which you have now seen happen shall be done hereafter.
    [17] For the weaker the world becomes through old age, the more shall evils be multiplied among its inhabitants.
    [18] For truth shall go farther away, and falsehood shall come near. For the eagle which you saw in the vision is already hastening to come.”
    [19] Then I answered and said, “Let me speak in thy presence, Lord.
    [20] For behold, I will go, as thou hast commanded me, and I will reprove the people who are now living; but who will warn those who will be born hereafter?
    For the world lies in darkness, and its inhabitants are without light.
    [21] For thy law has been burned, and so no one knows the things which have been done or will be done by thee.
    [22] If then I have found favor before thee, send the Holy Spirit into me, and I will write everything that has happened in the world from the beginning, the things which were written in thy law, that men may be able to find the path, and that those who wish to live in the last days may live.”
    [23] He answered me and said, “Go and gather the people, and tell them not to seek you for forty days.
    [24] But prepare for yourself many writing tablets, and take with you Sarea, Dabria, Selemia, Ethanus, and Asiel — these five, because they are trained to write rapidly;
    [25] and you shall come here, and I will light in your heart the lamp of understanding, which shall not be put out until what you are about to write is finished.
    [26] And when you have finished, some things you shall make public, and some you shall deliver in secret to the wise; tomorrow at this hour you shall begin to write.”

    [27] Then I went as he commanded me, and I gathered all the people together, and said, [28] “Hear these words, O Israel
    [29] At first our fathers dwelt as aliens in Egypt, and they were delivered from there,
    [30] and received the law of life, which they did not keep, which you also have transgressed after them.
    [31] Then land was given to you for a possession in the land of Zion; but you and your fathers committed iniquity and did not keep the ways which the Most High commanded you.
    [32] And because he is a righteous judge, in due time he took from you what he had given.
    [33] And now you are here, and your brethren are farther in the interior.
    [34] If you, then, will rule over your minds and discipline your hearts, you shall be kept alive, and after death you shall obtain mercy.
    [35] For after death the judgment will come, when we shall live again; and then the names of the righteous will become manifest, and the deeds of the ungodly will be disclosed.
    [36] But let no one come to me now, and let no one seek me for forty days.”
    [37] So I took the five men, as he commanded me, and we proceeded to the field, and remained there.

    [38] And on the next day, behold, a voice called me, saying, “Ezra, open your mouth and drink what I give you to drink.”
    [39] Then I opened my mouth, and behold, a full cup was offered to me; it was full of something like water, but its color was like fire.
    [40] And I took it and drank; and when I had drunk it, my heart poured forth understanding, and wisdom increased in my breast, for my spirit retained its memory;
    [41] and my mouth was opened, and was no longer closed.
    [42] And the Most High gave understanding to the five men, and by turns they wrote what was dictated, in characters which they did not know. They sat forty days, and wrote during the daytime, and ate their bread at night.
    [43] As for me, I spoke in the daytime and was not silent at night.
    [44] So during the forty days ninety-four books were written.
    [45] And when the forty days were ended, the Most High spoke to me, saying, “Make public the twenty-four books that you wrote first and let the worthy and the unworthy read them;
    [46] but keep the seventy that were written last, in order to give them to the wise among your people.
    [47] For in them is the spring of understanding, the fountain of wisdom, and the river of knowledge.”
    [48] And I did so.
    4Ezra.15
    [1] The Lord says, “Behold, speak in the ears of my people the words of the prophecy which I will put in your mouth,
    [2] and cause them to be written on paper; for they are trustworthy and true.

    [3] Do not fear the plots against you, and do not be troubled by the unbelief of those who oppose you.
    [4] For every unbeliever shall die in his unbelief.”
    [5] “Behold,” says the Lord, “I bring evils upon the world, the sword and famine and death and destruction.

    Christendom has been INFECTED with the RELIGION and the “god” of TALMUDIC JUDAISM. They have given Christendom a BABYLONIAN BIBLE; collected and written by Ezra and collated by the Pharisees.

    Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)
    And he said to them, “Take heed; beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

    Take heed … – That is, be cautious, be on your guard.

    The leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees – Leaven is used in making bread.
    It passes secretly, silently, but certainly through the mass of dough. See the notes at Matthew 13:33. “None can see its progress.” So it was with the doctrines of the Pharisees. They were insinuating, artful, plausible. They concealed the real tendency of their doctrines; they instilled them secretly into the mind, until they pervaded all the faculties like leaven.
    They reasoned … – The disciples did not understand him as referring to the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees, because the word “leaven” was not often used among the Jews to denote doctrines, no other instance of this use of the word occurring in the Scriptures. Besides, the Jews had many particular rules about the leaven (yeast) which might be used in making bread. Many held that it was not lawful to eat bread made by the Gentiles; and the disciples, perhaps, supposed that he was cautioning them not to procure a supply from the Pharisees and Sadducees.

    O ye of little faith! – Jesus, in reply, said that they should not be so anxious about the supply of their temporal wants. They should not have supposed, after the miracles that he had performed in feeding so many, that he would caution them to be anxious about procuring bread for their necessities. It was improper, then, for them to reason about a thing like that, but they should have supposed that he referred to something more important. The miracles had been full proof that he could supply all their wants without such anxiety.

    Matthew 13:33
    The kingdom of heaven – The meaning here is the same as in the last parable; perhaps, however, intending to denote more properly the secret and hidden nature of piety in the soul. The other parable declared the “fact” that the gospel would greatly spread, and that piety in the heart would greatly increase. This states the “way” or “mode” in which it would be done. It is secret, silent, steady; pervading all the faculties of the soul and all the kingdoms of the world, as leaven, or yeast, though hidden in the flour, and though deposited only in one place, works silently until all the mass is brought under its influence.
    Three measures – These were small measures (see the margin); but the particular amount is of no consequence to the story; nor is anything to be inferred from the fact that three are mentioned. That number is mentioned as a circumstance giving interest to the parable, but designed to convey no spiritual instruction. The measure mentioned here probably contained about a peck and a half.

  19. All praise be unto God and our Savior Y shua Jesus Christ . When the Master said , ” And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” Hear , Christians are Scripturally illiterate and lazy. The authors of Judaism and their fathers the false prophets inserted the evil Jehovah God into the OT that Christ reproved constantly for being the ‘ doctrines and commandments of men’ Although Jesus spoke plainly to his own, it is as if Today even with the benefit of historical hindsight many who profess His glorious Name blindly give Satan a pass and turn the other way to war-crimes, genocide and vilest hypocrisy that Israel and America commit daily together against humanity. Of course our countries are not alone in doing these things , but professing to be Christians we must set the example .Who are God’s chosen people? Certainly not the Jews! Their holy book Talmud is held above NT and spew hatred for Christ throughout. In fact it is so reprehensible that even it’s adherents are embarrassed to admit that their hatred for everyone is the racialist spirit that the Talmud promotes. Jewish children are taught that all people besides Jews are animals, incapable of salvation and to mention the Name of Jesus in the State of Israel is virtually a crime. Know that only those that hear His word and keep (do) it are His own. Be not deceived. If modern Jews and Christians were to stop committing blasphemy and repent they may be saved as well as we I do hope ,but woe unto them that mock God and endorse evil as being good because they are ‘Jews’ or Judeo-Christians [ there is no such thing] , and think to do so without suffering repercussions of The Judgment. Either we follow the Lamb wheresoever He goes or perish with the wicked. That is simple enough . Good speed and all blessings brother .

  20. yep. yep. yep. Great article. 100% of protestants in the USA seems like protest Jesus himself. They thought it’s ok to kill Native Americans and create concetration camps (reservations) for the survived. They thought it’s ok to have slaves (OT lol). They think it’s ok to genocide Palestinians.
    I still believe it’s because of massive propaganda machine built by u.know.who-owned mass media. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe they just don’t have the physical ability to read AND understand Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

  21. I am so glad that I went beyond the first page and found this site on the second page. What a treasure. I have saved all of it. Zacharia Sitchin would be proud of you. He was a Jewish boy in Russia who also wanted to know about these giants. So he studied and learned to translate all the languages, even Sumerian the very first language. Before he died in 2010, he published 14 books, putting the translations from the plates and the current history surrounding those translations in order so there is a flow from one period to another. Read his first book” The Lost Book of Enki” You will find out the name of this horrible OT God. It was Enlil, He hated everything. He and his clever brother, sabotaged the project that Jesus and His Father had set up here. And they ruined it and ruined the original man. That is why there is so much misery. But Jesus came to teach correct loving thinking and correct loving behavior. Do things his way. GOD is still in charge, and I mean the GOD who sent Jesus to encourage us, enable us, help us with the challenges and bring all who will stay close to him and listen to his still small voice, through this life into the eternal life Jesus promised. I am 70 years old and I have tried all the religions; they all mess with your head. It took me until I was about 67 to get all the pieces to the puzzle by reading Zacharia’s books and then going to meet him. My mind was in constant analysis trying to sort all the knowledge from his books and the scriptures, but it all cleared up. Appreciate GOD with your compassion, your acts of kindness, your efforts to help uplift your fellowman, grow in understanding that we are all in a different place on the path to spirituality. GOD doesn’t need your cattle or your gold, or bird sacrifices. He already owns everything. And since there aren’t any luggage racks on the hearse, analyse and ask yourself if you need all the stuff you’ve got. Can you give somebody an hour or two so you can feel what it is like to be him who never stops giving and helping. Finding this site and these comments has been a wonderful end to my day. Thanks everybody, for sharing.

  22. Awesome article, but it is not okey to blame the Jews. They all are human, creation of God the Almighty. Our fight is not against flesh of blood, but against the evil pricipalities of the heavenly realms. Efe.6.
    What you writhing about the OT is mindblowing. There is so much evil on this planet. God is love??? Take a look at the an imal suffering. It is heartbreaking. Something I totally not understand. All the animal sacrifices in the OT is disgusting. Animals have never ever sinned.
    Love my Lord Christ Jesua Jezus. And I believe that He saved all the humanity. Our apostel is Paul. He is the apostel for the Nations. Eva gel of Paul is our apostel chosen by Christ and
    the Father. EL ELOIHIM. It could ‘t be the same God as in the OT.

    bolts of lightning blazed forth.

    with hailstones and bolts of lightning.

    An Army of Locusts
    2 Blow the trumpet in Zion;
    sound the alarm on my holy hill.
    Let all who live in the land tremble,
    for the day of the LORD is coming.
    It is close at hand—
    2 a day of darkness and gloom,

    a day of clouds and blackness.
    Like dawn spreading across the mountains
    a large and mighty army comes,
    such as never was in ancient times
    nor ever will be in ages to come.

    3 Before them fire devours,
    behind them a flame blazes.
    Before them the land is like the garden of Eden,
    behind them, a desert waste—
    nothing escapes them.
    4 They have the appearance of horses;

    they gallop along like cavalry.
    5 With a noise like that of chariots
    they leap over the mountaintops,
    like a crackling fire consuming stubble,
    like a mighty army drawn up for battle.

    6 At the sight of them, nations are in anguish;
    every face turns pale.
    7 They charge like warriors;
    they scale walls like soldiers.
    They all march in line,
    not swerving from their course.
    8 They do not jostle each other;
    each marches straight ahead.
    They plunge through defenses
    without breaking ranks.
    9 They rush upon the city;
    they run along the wall.
    They climb into the houses;
    like thieves they enter through the windows.

    10 Before them the earth shakes,
    the heavens tremble,
    the sun and moon are darkened,
    and the stars no longer shine.
    11 The LORD thunders
    at the head of his army;
    his forces are beyond number,
    and mighty is the army that obeys his command.
    The day of the LORD is great;
    it is dreadful.
    Who can endure it?

    Amos 7:4 This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: The Sovereign LORD was calling for judgment byfire; it dried up the great deep and devoured the land.

    Micah 1:3-5 Judgment Against Samaria and Jerusalem
    3 Look! The LORD is coming from his dwelling place;
    he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth.
    4 The mountains melt beneath him
    and the valleys split apart,
    like wax before the fire,
    like water rushing down a slope.

    Nahum 1:5-6 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

    Malachi 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

    Zephaniah 3:8 Therefore wait for me,” declares the LORD, “for the day I will stand up to testify. I have decided to assemble the nations, to gather the kingdoms and to pour out my wrath on them— all my fierce anger. The whole world will be consumed by the fire of my jealous anger.

    Zechariah 2:5 And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will be its glory within.’

    Matthew 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

    Matthew 3:12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

    Matthew 17:14-16 14 When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him. 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son,” he said. “He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him.”

    Luke 3:16 John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 17 His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” 18 And with many other words John exhorted the people and proclaimed the good news to them.

    Luke 9:54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them ?”

    Luke 12:49 have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! 51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.

    Acts 2:18-20
    18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

    2 Thessalonians 1:7 and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.

    Hebrews 1:7 In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels spirits, and his servants flames of fire.”

    Hebrews 10:27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.

    Hebrews 10:31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

    The Mountain of Fear and the Mountain of Joy (Hebrews 12)
    18 You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.”[c] 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”[d]
    22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn,whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
    25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”[e] 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
    28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”[f]

    Hebrews 12:29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

    2 Peter 3:7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

    2 Peter 3:12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.

    Revelation 9:2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.

    Revelation 11:5 If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die.

    Revelation 11:19 Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.

    Revelation 20:14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death – the lake of fire.

    BIBLICAL METAPHORS
    Once you are able to see through the Biblical metaphors you will be able to look back at history and decipher events. Remove all the god dialogue and trim the stories back to reveal the facts. This is, of course, diametrically opposed to the approach taken by Biblical scholars who prefer to embelish further and stretch the poetic licence long past breaking point. Bring it back down to earth….
    ‘his chariots are like a whirlwind’ are tumbling ash clouds

    ‘He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.’ dito

    ‘He advances like the clouds, his chariots come like a whirlwind, his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe to us! We are ruined!’ dito

    ‘raging furnace’ is the volcano

    ‘his tongue is a consuming fire’ is overflowing lava

    ‘holy ones’ are water vapour escaping from volcanic mountain slopes.

    ‘pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger’ means lava flowing and burning.

    ‘A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him’ means a lava flow coming out of the volcano.

    ‘pour out my wrath on you’ means pour out lava from the volcano.

    ‘a very loud trumpet blast’ is the noise a volcano makes before erupting afte the magma plug has been released.

    ‘dwelling in light unapproachable’ believing their god was inside the live volcano.

    ‘but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through’ means hit by shooting brimstone balls.

    ‘smoke out of his nostrils’ means smoke coming out of the top of the mountain where god was assumed to reside.

    ‘fire out of his mouth devoured’ means firey lava out of the mouth of the volcano.

    ‘burning with his anger’ means erupting volcano

    ‘his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire’ means overflowing lava.

    ‘And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly.’ means the erupting and hissing volcano will signal to others to go to it.

    ‘the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.’ means the volcano was threatening to erupt but didn’t.

    ‘furnace of fire’ means volcano

    ‘lake of fire’ lake of lava inside live volcano

    ‘unquenchable fire’ volcano

    ‘And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.’ means a fire flamed up in a lava vent or river when incence was thrown onto it.

    ‘God is a consuming fire’ means god is a volcano

    ‘You unleashed your burning anger; it consumed them like stubble.’ means a volcano erupted and killed some people.

    ‘To the Israelites the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain.’ means they didn’t know what a volcano was when they saw one and thought it was instead their god making fire on top of a mountain. Mountain worship originated from volcano worship because it was assumed all tall mountains could attract a magician to reside in it.

    ‘Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.’ means lava rivers flow out from the volcano and kill people all around.

    ‘The peaceful meadows will be laid waste because of the fierce anger of the LORD.’ peaceful meadows will be devasted by an eruption.

    ‘thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.’ clothes/hair = clouds, throne = top of erupting volcano.

    ‘The heavens will disappear with a roar’ heavens = clouds in the sky…also small clouds of smoke above the volcano described as heaven. (heaven as a place for the afterlife started later. There was no suggestion of an afterlife during the time of ‘the mountain of god’.)

    ‘the earth shook, the heavens poured down rain, before God, the One of Sinai’ heaven = clouds

    ‘”The LORD came from Sinai and dawned over them from Seir; he shone forth from Mount Paran. He came with myriads of holy ones from the south, from his mountain slopes.’ lots of erupting volcanoes and water vapour leaks.

    ‘The earth opened its mouth and swallowed them along with Korah,’ a crack in the ground caused by techtonic plate shift or an earthquack….notice the lack of the use of ‘His’ or ‘He’. It’s just ‘the earth’ and not ‘He opened His mouth’.

    ‘fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages.’ lava flows devour outside of the volcano and inside a fire rages.

    ‘When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.’ a volcano

    ‘When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke’ trumpeting noise coming from erupting volcano.

    ‘pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light’ means at night they could see the pillar of fire from the volcano and during the day a pillar of smoke.

    ‘voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder’ means the noise from an erupting volcano.

    ‘There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up.’ angels = flaming gas leaks on the slopes of the volcano Mt Sinai.

    In addition, hail in the Bible is sometimes volcanic hail, ‘holy smoke’ may well have been a metaphor for ‘divine’ smoke from volcanoes, ‘My Rock’ could have refered to the volcano deity and ‘His Holy Temple’ and ‘Holy Hill’ were certainly describing Mt Sinai.
    There are different types of volcanoes and in Saudi, which was a mecca for volcano worship, the volcanoes tend to be oil based and therefore do not produce ash. The camp would have to have dealt with ‘his rivers of fire’, brimstone, smoke, lightning, earthquakes (outstretched arm) and noise….like a ‘trumpet blast’.

    Remember that these people did not see volcanoes as dangerous inconveniences. These were red lights for ‘God in residence’. They wouldn’t up and leave when their god was around. They would just be awestruck and hopeful their god was not going to execute them for their misdeeds.

    So, your questions, ‘Have I researched what happens when a volcano erupts’, which was obviously a bit sarcastic, can be answered with a ‘Yes, and more’. I’ve also researched how people perceived volcanoes.

    Moses might not even have existed. If someone did walk up a volcano and claimed to have see their god face to face then that would not be unusual amongst volcano god devotees and certainly not amongst the ‘priesthood’ who were probably in those days high on something. Don’t assume a priest then was the same as a priest now, the priests then responsibly for administering some ‘divine’ punishments. Not very holy.

    They saw their god and they ate with him and told someone about it who added that they did a little dance and then someone else wrote about it and added that they did a little dance and drank wine and got merry with a handful of virgins.

    Come on. Try to decipher truth from fiction. It is possible. It just takes a good insight into the volcano god mindset and discernment.

    The biblical description of God’s descent seems to be in conflict with the statement shortly after that God spoke to the Israelites from Heaven. While biblical scholars argue that these passages are from different sources, the Mekhilta argues that God had lowered the heavens and spread them over Sinai, and the Pirke De-Rabbi Eliezer argues that a hole was torn in the heavens, and Sinai was torn away from the earth and the summit pushed through the hole. ‘The heavens’ could be a metaphor for clouds and the ‘lake of fire’ could be a metaphor for the lava-filled crater. Several bible critics have indicated that the smoke and fire reference from the Bible suggests that Mt Sinai was a volcano; despite the absence of ash.

  24. Okay…this is totally wrong. From several points of views. First of all, if you have NOT read the WHOLE Old Testimate I would not start being judgemental to a God you know nothing about. All you did up there…was exactly God’s words & verses BUT do you not understand & get what he is saying that to? The Bible is a teaching or a knowing of God’s way, or what God expects of us as humans. You pointed out many verses that sound harsh. BUT in many of the verses you stated were about God punishing Israel but bad habits they did. God was trying to show them right from wrong but many were ignorant & did not follow correctly as He guided. So Ofcourse God made strict rules & guides to follow…& all that you stated, you did NOT tell the full story of WHY he said that. So why put it in your paragraph of nonsense if your not going to back up your statements. That’s ridiculous. If you say some thing like that, back it up with what the whole Chapter was even about. If you put a random verse that God said & NOT put why he said that & in what kind of situation/circumstance was going on then don’t waste your time writing about some thing your against. Btw. If you are a TRUE christian, you just know what a christian is? A christian believes in a beautiful God & Jesus Christ Ofcourse. God may be strict, but He is the judgment of the Earth? The creater. He only does what’s needed, right and fair. If you can’t see that you are not truly a christian. If you have not read…He is a very forgiving God. Various times He FORGAVE Israel for worshiping wood, and useless statues…did He ever leave them? No. He simply showed them the correct way, showed them mercy & forgave them for the foolish things they did. Why do you think God put wisdom in many of the Kings that were in contol of Jerusalem? Because He wanted the king to lead irael in the correct way. If He wasent caring & forgiving, He would simply leave those people & give up or even kill the whole population itself. But He always showed mercy. BY those stories He was trying to show you ignorant people that He IS forgiving and has mercy on all his followers. Don’t be blind but realize what the stories are truly showing so you can understand.

  25. TERRORIST TRAINING MANUAL FOUND

    (Found in the apartment of a Jewish Rabbi in Manchester, England,)

    JOSHUA & THE JEWISH MEIN KAMF
    THE ORIGINAL TERRORIST’S MANUAL
    BOOK OF JOSHUA, A JEWISH TERRORIST MANUAL

    The Book of Joshua describes little more than a genocidal campaign against the unsuspecting inhabitants of Canaan. The Canaanites never attacked the Israelites, never enslaved the Israelites, and aren’t described as ever having done anything to warrant mistreatment of any sort. Their only crime was living in the wrong place at the wrong time — land promised to the Israelites by God at the time when God decided to make good on that promise.

    JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS: COMMIT GENOCIDE

    It’s impossible to know the moral or mental disposition of the Israelites and in fact the text doesn’t really delve into their psychology at all; the length and breadth of their roles consists of obeying or disobeying Yahweh. It is thus to Yahweh that we turn to understand the genocidal actions of the Israelites. Through much of the relevant text only Yahweh is presented as being truly active and, as one might expect, all of the impetus for genocide indeed comes from Yahweh.
    Already in Exodus, Yahweh promises that the Canaanites would “melt away” and that he would drive away the Canaanites when the Israelites arrive. By Deuteronomy, Yahweh says:

    And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
    (Deuteronomy 7:2-3)

    Similar instructions appear in subsequent texts and they are clear that not only are the Israelites to make total war on the inhabitants, but they are also prohibited from entering into any sort of peace treaty with any group. There is to be no mercy for anyone, only death.

    The Israelites got some practice in this by making war against the Midianites:

    And they warred against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses; and they slew all the males. …And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods. …

    And Moses said unto them…Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
    (Numbers 31:7-18)

    So were the young virgin girls lucky that they weren’t slaughtered like the rest of their people, or were they unlucky that they were essentially taken as sex slaves to be used to satiate the lusts of the soldiers who slaughtered their fathers, mothers, brothers, and older sisters?

    The Book of Joshua makes it clear that the Israelites get to the murderous work of genocide and become quite efficient at it:

    And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them, did Joshua take, and smote them with the edge of the sword, and he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the Lord commanded. …every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe. As the Lord commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the Lord commanded Moses.
    (Joshua 11:12-15)

    Raphael Lemkin argues in Axis Rule in Occupied Europe that one of the distinguishing features of genocide is not simply mass killing, which happens frequently in war, but the goal-oriented mass killing that is designed to destroy or culture or society with the purpose of replacing it entirely. This is definitely what we see happening in Joshua: the Israelites kill all the people in order to destroy their culture then move in to take over their fields, vineyards, cities, and lands.

    YAHWEH IS A BULLY

    To be fair to the Israelites, it should be noted that they may have been operating from more than a little fear. Given their experience of what Yahweh did to their enemies, did they really want to become Yahweh’s enemies too? Probably not — and Yahweh certainly made threats about what would happen if they Israelites didn’t do as they were told:

    But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell. Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as I thought to do unto them.

    (Numbers 33:55-56)

    This is of course not the only threat issued to the Israelites, but it is the one which most closely associates Yahweh’s actions against the Canaanites with possible action against them: if they don’t follow orders to commit genocide, Yahweh might decide to cause a bit of genocide against them instead.

    This doesn’t entirely let the Israelites of the hook for their actions, but insofar as their guilt is mitigated at all, it’s magnified many times over for Yahweh. Not only did Yahweh order genocide to be committed and not only did he actively assist to ensure that genocide was committed, but he threatened his thugs that if they didn’t blindly obey their murderous orders then he’d do the same to them later on.
    And even that’s not the worst…

    MAKING GENOCIDE EASY

    Committing genocide against the indigenous people of Canaan was made easier by the fact that they were willing to fight for their ancestral homes. It’s easier to slaughter people who are trying to kill you, even if you’re the one who started the fight. Had the Canaanites tried to welcome the newcomers and pursue peaceful treaties, genocide might have been harder. Even the most fanatical religious zealot has a harder time slaughtering unarmed, peaceful people.
    Apparently Yahweh thought of this and took steps to ensure that nothing like this would interfere with his plans:
    There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other they took in battle. For it was of the Lord to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favor, but that he might destroy them, as the Lord commanded Moses.

    (Joshua 11:19-20)

    So Yahweh “hardened” the hearts of the Canaanites to guarantee that they would “come against Israel in battle.” Had he not done that, some of the Canaanites might have chosen a more peaceful solution and the Israelites might have been tempted to befriend them. Instead, they slaughtered everyone.

    Where else have we seen this? Not long before, Yahweh did the same thing with the pharaoh in Egypt: every time the pharaoh was about to let the Israelites god, Yahweh hardened his heart to ensure that he would say “no” and keep them a while longer as slaves. This guaranteed that Yahweh would get to kill all the firstborn sons of all the Egyptians as a show of psychopathic power.

    This is thus a persistent pattern for Yahweh: order one group of humans to harm a second group of humans, then take away the free will of the second ground and force them to act in a way that ensures conflict can occur. This sounds remarkably like a child torturing small animals and we all know what happens to kids like that.
