"Israeli police had come in the night, dragged them from their beds and placed hoods over their heads. Then in jails the Israelis had kept them in isolation, besieged them with loud, incessant noises, hung them upside down and had sadistically mutilated their genitals. I had not read such stories in the U.S. media. Wasn't it news? Obviously, I naively thought, U.S. editors simply didn't know it was happening.
"I realized, quite painfully, that our friendship was ending. Iphigene Sulzberger had not only invited me to her home to meet her famous friends but, also at her suggestion, The Times had requested articles. I wrote op-ed articles on various subjects including American blacks, American Indians as well as undocumented workers. Since Mrs. Sulzberger and other Jewish officials at the Times highly praised my efforts to help these groups of oppressed peoples, the dichotomy became apparent: most "liberal" U.S. Jews stand on the side of all poor and oppressed peoples save one-the Palestinians.
"Israelis today, explains the anti-Zionist Jew Israel Shahak, "are not basing their religion on the ethics of justice. They do not accept the Old Testament as it is written. Rather, religious Jews turn to the Talmud. For them, the Talmudic Jewish laws become 'the Bible.' And the Talmud teaches that a Jew can kill a non-Jew with impunity."
"In the teachings of Christ, there was a break from such Talmudic teachings. He sought to heal the wounded, to comfort the downtrodden.
"The danger, of course, for U.S. Christians is that having made an icon of Israel, we fall into a trap of condoning whatever Israel does-even wanton murder-as orchestrated by God."
Grace Halsell wrote this and many others years ago, and yet there are many of us just awakening, just learning, and we still don't know the half of the Z crimes.
A huge part of the crime is deluding Christians with the notion that Talmudic Judaism has anything to do with Christianity. Jesus and the Pharisees were at odds. It was the Pharisees, the Babylonian Talmudists, who lobbied the Roman Empires Procurator, Pontius Pilate, to have Jesus executed for speaking to the people about the hypocrisy and falsehoods taught by the then religious Zionists, the Pharisees.
There is no Judeo-Christianity except for the connection of Christianity with Torah and definitely not Talmud. Jesus was not Talmudic. He was anti-Talmud. This is barely mentioned anywhere.
The Pharisees were tricking the people so those Pharisees could be rich in mammon and powerful with the Empire while looking down upon the poor and downtrodden even when those poor and downtrodden spoke truth.
This part, Tom, is what I was taught as a child, and, of course, there has been much effort to rewrite this, and very loudly when Mel Gibson's The Passaion of the Christ was completed,:" It was the Pharisees, the Babylonian Talmudists, who lobbied the Roman Empires... Procurator, Pontius Pilate, to have Jesus executed for speaking to the people about the hypocrisy and falsehoods taught by the then religious Zionists, the Pharisees."
I know. It's amazing that it's right there in black and white in the Gospels; but the Zionists yell "blood libel" and such about it and claim that Jews had nothing to do with murdering Jesus but rather the Romans did it all from their own Roman thinking.
Have you seen the passages in the Talmud that are directed against Jesus? He's boiling in Hell in excrement according to the Talmudists, Religious Zionists.
Those are the same people who claim God gave them the land.
Mel Gibson has had his problems and I'm not pre- or post-Vatican II, but when he said that the Jews (and he meant only certain bankster types) have caused all the wars (at least since the Rothschild dynasty took over all Western economies) and when he recently had his public falling out with his current wife, he wasn't completely wrong on either score.
The Rothschilds have funded major wars on both sides. People in general are just ignorant about it. The huge portion of the Rothschilds' wealth was made "underground" to avoid taxes. That's documented. They've never been audited, just as their Federal Reserve has never been audited.
As for Mel's wife, if he hit her, he of course should not have; but she certainly did dress provocatively. Why he didn't think about that before he married her goes to show his confusion. In addition, I don't believe that he is a racist. Although there is a great deal of it in Australia, and I don't know how much of that he was raised with and/or carried out of there with him.
He has work to do, Christian work, and I hope he does it. I hope he overcomes whatever is tripping him up.
I haven't attempted to know everything about the case or to stay current on it. I'm completely against domestic violence and otherwise, whether it's the male or the female who starts it – and there are women who hit men, etc., before those women are hit. A man should take it and not hit back. If she won't quit, he should leave. If she keeps doing it, he should leave and not come back provided in my book, literally, he's done all the things he should per the Gospel. The same applies when it's the male hitting the female. Of course, it also all depends upon the seriousness of the hitting. Some people can kill with one hit. There are also weapons to consider too. Sometimes leaving before and never coming back is right. I leave it to the Holy Spirit to move individuals to know when. May God guide everyone to peace.
