About a decade ago, I happened to be talking with an eminent academic scholar who had become known for his sharp criticism of Israeli policies in the Middle East and America’s strong support for them. I mentioned that I myself had come to very similar conclusions some time before, and he asked when that had happened. I told him it had been in 1982, and I think he found my answer quite surprising. I got the sense that date was decades earlier than would have been given by almost anyone else he knew.

Sometimes it is quite difficult to pinpoint when one’s world view on a contentious topic undergoes sharp transformation, but at other times it is quite easy. My own perceptions of the Middle East conflict drastically shifted during Fall 1982, and they have subsequently changed only to a far smaller extent. As some might remember, that period marked the first Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and culminated in the notorious Sabra-Shatila Massacre during which hundreds or even thousands of Palestinians were slaughtered in their refugee camps. But although those events were certainly major factors in my ideological realignment, the crucial trigger was actually a certain letter to the editor published around that same time.

A few years earlier, I had discovered The London Economist, as it was then called, and it had quickly become my favorite publication, which I religiously devoured cover-to-cover every week. And as I read the various articles about the Middle East conflict in that publication, or others such as the New York Times, the journalists occasionally included quotes from some particularly fanatic and irrational Israeli Communist named Israel Shahak, whose views seemed totally at odds with those of everyone else, and who was consequently treated as a fringe figure. Opinions that seem totally divorced from reality tend to stick in one’s mind, and it took only one or two appearances from that apparently die-hard and delusional Stalinist for me to guess that he would always take an entirely contrary position on every given issue.

In 1982 Israel Defense Minister Ariel Sharon launched his massive invasion of Lebanon using the pretext of the wounding of an Israeli diplomat in Europe at the hands of a Palestinian attacker, and the extreme nature of his action was widely condemned in the media outlets I read at the time. His motive was obviously to root out the PLO’s political and military infrastructure, which had taken hold in many of Lebanon’s large Palestinian refugee camps. But back in those days invasions of Middle Eastern countries on dubious prospects were much less common than they have subsequently become, after our recent American wars killed or displaced so many millions, and most observers were horrified by the utterly disproportionate nature of his attack and the severe destruction he was inflicted upon Israel’s neighbor, which he seemed eager to reduce to puppet status. From what I recall from that time, he made several entirely false assurances to top Reagan officials about his invasion plans, such that they afterward called him the worst sort of liar, and he ended up besieging the Lebanese capital of Beirut even though he had originally promised to limit his assault to a mere border incursion.

The Israeli siege of the PLO-controlled areas of Beirut lasted some time, and negotiations eventually resulted in the departure of the Palestinian fighters to some other Arab country. Shortly afterward, the Israelis declared that they were moving into West Beirut in order to better assure the safety of the Palestinian women and children left behind and protect them from any retribution at the hands of their Christian Falangist enemies. And around that same time, I noticed a long letter in The Economist by Shahak which seemed to me the final proof of his insanity. He claimed that it was obvious that Sharon had marched to Beirut with the intent of organizing a massacre of the Palestinians, and that this would shortly take place. When the slaughter indeed occurred not long afterward, apparently with heavy Israeli involvement and complicity, I concluded that if a crazy Communist fanatic like Shahak had been right, while apparently every mainstream journalist had been so completely wrong, my understanding of the world and the Middle East required total recalibration. Or at least that’s how I’ve always remembered those events from a distance of over thirty-five years.

During the years that followed, I still periodically saw Shahak’s statements quoted in my mainstream publications, which sometimes suggested that he was a Communist and sometimes not. Naturally enough, his ideological extremism made him a prominent opponent of the 1991 Oslo Peace Agreement between Israel and the occupied Palestinians, which was supported by every sensible person, though since Oslo ended up being entirely a failure, I couldn’t hold it too strongly against him. I stopped paying much attention to foreign policy issues during the 1990s, but I still read my New York Times every morning and would occasionally see his quotes, inevitably contrarian and irredentist.

Then the 9/11 attacks returned foreign policy and the Middle East to the absolute center of our national agenda, and I eventually read somewhere or other that Shahak had died at age 68 only a few months earlier, though I hadn’t noticed any obituary. Over the years, I’d seen some vague mention that during the previous decade he’d published a couple of stridently anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist books, just as might be expected from a hard-line Communist fanatic, and during the early 2000s I started seeing more and more references to these works, ironically coming from fringe sources of the anti-Semitic Far Right, thereby once again proving that extremists flock together. Finally, about a decade ago, my curiosity got the better of me and clicking a few buttons on Amazon.com, I ordered copies of his books, all of which were quite short.

 

My first surprise was that Shahak’s writings included introductions or glowing blurbs by some of America’s most prominent public intellectuals, including Christopher Hitchens, Gore Vidal, Noam Chomsky, and Edward Said. Praise also came from quite respectable publications such as The London Review of Books, Middle East International, and Catholic New Times while Allan Brownfeld of The American Council for Judaism had published a very long and laudatory obituary. And I discovered that Shahak’s background was very different than I had always imagined. He had spent many years as an award-winning Chemistry professor at Hebrew University, and was actually anything but a Communist. Whereas for decades, Israel’s ruling political parties had been Socialist or Marxist, his personal doubts about Socialism had left him politically in the wilderness, while his relationship with Israel’s tiny Communist Party was solely because they were the only group willing to stand up for the basic human rights issues that were his own central focus. My casual assumptions about his views and background had been entirely in error.

Once I actually began reading his books, and considering his claims, my shock increased fifty-fold. Throughout my entire life, there have been very, very few times I have ever been so totally astonished as I was after I digested Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years, whose text runs barely a hundred pages. In fact, despite his solid background in the academic sciences and the glowing testaments provided by prominent figures, I found it quite difficult to accept the reality of what I was reading. As a consequence, I paid a considerable sum to a young graduate student I knew, tasking him to verify the claims in Shahak’s books, and as far as he could tell, all of the hundreds of references he checked seemed to be accurate or at least found in other sources.

Even with all of that due diligence, I must emphasize that I cannot directly vouch for Shahak’s claims about Judaism. My own knowledge of that religion is absolutely negligible, mostly being limited to my childhood, when my grandmother occasionally managed to drag me down to services at the local synagogue, where I was seated among a mass of elderly men praying and chanting in some strange language while wearing various ritualistic cloths and religious talismans, an experience that I always found much less enjoyable than my usual Saturday morning cartoons.

Although Shahak’s books are quite short, they contain such a density of astonishing material, it would take many, many thousands of words to begin to summarize them. Essentially almost everything I had known—or thought I had known—about the religion of Judaism, at least in its zealously Orthodox traditional form, was utterly wrong.

For example, traditionally religious Jews pay little attention to most of the Old Testament, and even very learned rabbis or students who have devoted many years to intensive study may remain largely ignorant of its contents. Instead, the center of their religious world view is the Talmud, an enormously large, complex, and somewhat contradictory mass of secondary writings and commentary built up over many centuries, which is why their religious doctrine is sometimes called “Talmudic Judaism.” Among large portions of the faithful, the Talmud is supplemented by the Kabala, another large collection of accumulated writings, mostly focused on mysticism and all sorts of magic. Since these commentaries and interpretations represent the core of the religion, much of what everyone takes for granted in the Bible is considered in a very different manner.

Given the nature of the Talmudic basis of traditional Judaism and my total previous ignorance of the subject, any attempt on my part of summarize some of the more surprising aspects of Shahak’s description may be partially garbled, and is certainly worthy of correction by someone better versed in that dogma. And given that so many parts of the Talmud are highly contradictory and infused with complex mysticism, it would be impossible for someone like me to attempt to disentangle the seeming inconsistencies that I am merely repeating. I should note that although Shahak’s description of the beliefs and practices of Talmudic Judaism evoked a fire-storm of denunciations, few of those harsh critics seem to have denied his very specific claims, including the most astonishing ones, which would seem to strengthen his credibility.

On the most basic level, the religion of most traditional Jews is actually not at all monotheistic, but instead contains a wide variety of different male and female gods, having quite complex relations to each other, with these entities and their properties varying enormously among the numerous different Jewish sub-sects, depending upon which portions of the Talmud and the Kabala they place uppermost. For example, the traditional Jewish religious cry “The Lord Is One” has always been interpreted by most people to be an monotheistic affirmation, and indeed, many Jews take exactly this same view. But large numbers of other Jews believe this declaration instead refers to achievement of sexual union between the primary male and female divine entities. And most bizarrely, Jews having such radically different views see absolutely no difficulty in praying side by side, and merely interpreting their identical chants in very different fashion.

Furthermore, religious Jews apparently pray to Satan almost as readily as they pray to God, and depending upon the various rabbinical schools, the particular rituals and sacrifices they practice may be aimed at enlisting the support of the one or the other. Once again, so long as the rituals are properly followed, the Satan-worshippers and the God-worshippers get along perfectly well and consider each other equally pious Jews, merely of a slightly different tradition. One point that Shahak repeatedly emphasizes is that in traditional Judaism the nature of the ritual itself is absolutely uppermost, while the interpretation of the ritual is rather secondary. So perhaps a Jew who washes his hands three times clockwise might be horrified by another who follows a counter-clockwise direction, but whether the hand-washing were meant to honor God or to honor Satan would be hardly be a matter of much consequence.

Strangely enough, many of the traditional rituals are explicitly intended to fool or trick God or His angels or sometimes Satan, much like the mortal heroes of some Greek legend might seek to trick Zeus or Aphrodite. For example, certain prayers must be uttered in Aramaic rather than Hebrew on the grounds that holy angels apparently don’t understand the former language, and their confusion allows those verses to slip by unimpeded and take effect without divine interference.

Furthermore, since the Talmud represents a massive accretion of published commentary built up over more than a millennium, even the most explicit mandates have sometimes been transformed into their opposites. As an example, Maimonides, one of the highest rabbinical authorities, absolutely prohibited rabbis from being paid for their religious teaching, declaring that any rabbi who received a salary was an evil robber condemned to everlasting torment; yet later rabbis eventually “reinterpreted” this statement to mean something entirely different, and today almost all rabbis collect salaries.

Another fascinating aspect is that up until very recent times, the lives of religious Jews were often dominated by all sorts of highly superstitious practices, including magical charms, potions, spells, incantations, hexes, curses, and sacred talismans, with rabbis often having an important secondary role as sorcerers, and this even remains entirely true today among the enormously influential rabbis of Israel and the New York City area. Shahak’s writings had not endeared him to many of these individuals, and for years they constantly attacked him with all sorts of spells and fearful curses aimed at achieving his death or illness. Many of these traditional Jewish practices seem not entirely dissimilar to those we typically associate with African witch-doctors or Voodoo priests, and indeed, the famous legend of the Golem of Prague described the successful use of rabbinical magic to animate a giant creature built of clay.

 

If these ritualistic issues constituted the central features of traditional religious Judaism, we might regard it as a rather colorful and eccentric survival of ancient times. But unfortunately, there is also a far darker side, primarily involving the relationship between Jews and non-Jews, with the highly derogatory term goyim frequently used to describe the latter. To put it bluntly, Jews have divine souls and goyim do not, being merely beasts in the shape of men. Indeed, the primary reason for the existence of non-Jews is to serve as the slaves of Jews, with some very high-ranking rabbis occasionally stating this well-known fact. In 2010, Israel’s top Sephardic rabbi used his weekly sermon to declare that the only reason for the existence of non-Jews is to serve Jews and do work for them. The enslavement or extermination of all non-Jews seems an ultimate implied goal of the religion.

Jewish lives have infinite value, and non-Jewish ones none at all, which has obvious policy implications. For example, in a published article a prominent Israeli rabbi explained that if a Jew needed a liver, it would be perfectly fine, and indeed obligatory, to kill an innocent Gentile and take his. Perhaps we should not be too surprised that today Israel is widely regarded as one of the world centers of organ-trafficking.

As a further illustration of the seething hatred traditional Judaism radiates towards all those of a different background, saving the life of a non-Jew is generally considered improper or even prohibited, and taking any such action on the Sabbath would be an absolute violation of religious edict. Such dogmas are certainly ironic given the widespread presence of Jews in the medical profession during recent centuries, but they came to the fore in Israel when a religiously-minded military doctor took them to heart and his position was supported by the country’s highest religious authorities.

And while religious Judaism has a decidedly negative view towards all non-Jews, Christianity in particular is regarded as a total abomination, which must be wiped from the face of the earth.

Whereas pious Muslims consider Jesus as the holy prophet of God and Muhammed’s immediate predecessor, according to the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is perhaps the vilest being who ever lived, condemned to spend eternity in the bottommost pit of Hell, immersed in a boiling vat of excrement. Religious Jews regard the Muslim Quran as just another book, though a totally mistaken one, but the Christian Bible represents purest evil, and if circumstances permit, burning Bibles is a very praiseworthy act. Pious Jews are also enjoined to always spit three times at any cross or church they encounter, and direct a curse at all Christian cemeteries. Indeed, many deeply religious Jews utter a prayer each and every day for the immediate extermination of all Christians.

Over the years prominent Israeli rabbis have sometimes publicly debated whether Jewish power has now become sufficiently great that all the Christian churches of Jerusalem, Bethleham, and other nearby areas can finally be destroyed, and the entire Holy Land completely cleansed of all traces of its Christian contamination. Some have taken this position, but most have urged prudence, arguing that Jews needed to gain some additional strength before they should take such a risky step. These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.

 

For the last two thousand years, Jews have almost invariably existed as small, relatively weak minorities living in the lands of others, whether Christian or Muslim, so a religious doctrine so unswervingly hostile to outsiders has naturally presented considerable obstacles for peaceful co-existence. The solution to this dilemma has been based on the divine mandate to preserve Jewish life and well-being above all else, superseding almost all other religious considerations. Thus, if any of the behaviors discussed above are considered likely to stir up resentment from powerful Gentile groups and put Jews at risk, they must be avoided.

For example, the prohibition against Jewish physicians treating the illnesses of non-Jews is waived in the case of powerful non-Jews, especially national leaders, whose favor might provide benefits to the Jewish community. And even ordinary non-Jews may be aided unless some persuasive excuse can be found to explain such lack of assistance since otherwise the vengeful hostility of their friends and relatives might cause difficulties for other Jews. Similarly, it is permissible to exchange gifts with non-Jews but only if such behavior can be justified in strictly utilitarian terms, with any simple expression of friendship towards a non-Jew being a violation of holy principles.

If the Gentile population became aware of these Jewish religious beliefs and the behaviors they promote, major problems for Jews might develop, so an elaborate methodology of subterfuge, concealment, and dissimulation has come into being over the many centuries to minimize this possibility, especially including the mistranslation of sacred texts or the complete exclusion of crucial sections. Meanwhile, the traditional penalty for any Jew who “informs” to the authorities on any matter regarding the Jewish community has always been death, often preceded by hideous torture.

Much of this dishonesty obviously continues down to recent times since it seems very unlikely that Jewish rabbis, except perhaps for those of the most avant garde disposition, would remain totally unaware of the fundamental tenets of the religion that they claim to lead, and Shahak is scathing toward their apparent self-serving hypocrisy, especially those who publicly express strongly liberal views. For example, according to mainstream Talmudic doctrine, black Africans are traditionally placed somewhere between people and monkeys in their intrinsic nature, and surely all rabbis, even liberal ones, would be aware of this religious doctrine. But Shahak notes that the numerous American rabbis who so eagerly worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and other black Civil Rights leaders during the 1950s and 1960s strictly concealed their religious beliefs while denouncing American society for its cruel racism, presumably seeking to achieve a political quid pro quo beneficial to Jewish interests from America’s substantial black population.

Shahak also emphasizes the utterly totalitarian nature of traditional Jewish society, in which rabbis held the power of life and death over their congregants, and often sought to punish ideological deviation or heresy using those means. They were often outraged that this became difficult as states grew stronger and increasingly prohibited such private executions. Liberalizing rabbis were sometimes murdered and Baruch Spinoza, the famous Jewish philosopher of the Age of Reason, only survived because the Dutch authorities refused to allow his fellow Jews to kill him.

 

Given the complexity and exceptionally controversial nature of this subject matter, I would urge readers who find this topic of interest to spend three or four hours reading Shahak’s very short book, and then decide for themselves whether his claims seem plausible and whether I may have inadvertently misunderstood them. Aside from the copies on Amazon, the work may also be found at Archive.org and also a very convenient HTML copy is freely available on the Internet.

My encounter a decade ago with Shahak’s candid description of the true doctrines of traditional Judaism was certainly one of the most world-altering revelations of my entire life. But as I gradually digested the full implications, all sorts of puzzles and disconnected facts suddenly became much more clear. There were also some remarkable ironies, and not long afterward I joked to a (Jewish) friend of mine that I’d suddenly discovered that Naziism could best be described as “Judaism for Wimps” or perhaps Judaism as practiced by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

There may actually be a deeper historical truth behind that irony. I think I’ve read here and there that some scholars believe that Hitler may have modeled certain aspects of his racially-focused National Socialist doctrine upon the Jewish example, which really makes perfect sense. After all, he saw that despite their small numbers Jews had gained enormous power in the Soviet Union, Weimar Germany, and numerous other countries throughout Europe, partly due to their extremely strong ethnic cohesion, and he probably reasoned that his own Germanic people, being far greater in numbers and historical achievements could do even better if they adopted similar practices.

It’s also interesting to note that quite a number of the leading racialist pioneers of 19th century Europe came from a particular ethnic background. For example, my history books had always disapprovingly mentioned Germany’s Max Nordau and Italy’s Cesare Lombroso as two of the founding figures of European racism and eugenics theories, but it was only very recently that I also discovered that Nordau had also been the joint founder with Theodor Herzl of the world Zionist movement, while his major racialist treatise Degeneration, was dedicated to Lombroso, his Jewish mentor.

Even as late as the 1930s and afterward, international Zionist groups closely cooperated with the Third Reich on international economic projects, and during the world war itself one of the smaller rightwing factions, led by future Israeli Prime Minister Yizhak Shamir, actually offered a military alliance to the Axis Powers, denouncing the decadent Western democracies and hoping to cooperate against their mutual British enemies. The Transfer Agreement by Edwin Black, 51 Documents by Lenni Brenner, and other writings have documented all these facts in detail, though for obvious reasons they have generally been ignored or mischaracterized by most of our media outlets.

 

Obviously the Talmud is hardly regular reading among ordinary Jews these days, and I would suspect that except for the strongly Orthodox and perhaps most rabbis, barely a sliver are aware of its highly controversial teachings. But it is important to keep in mind that until just a few generations ago, almost all European Jews were deeply Orthodox, and even today I would guess that the overwhelming majority of Jewish adults had Orthodox grand-parents. Highly distinctive cultural patterns and social attitudes can easily seep into a considerably wider population, especially one that remains ignorant of the origin of those sentiments, a condition enhancing their unrecognized influence. A religion based upon the principal of “Love Thy Neighbor” may or may not be workable in practice, but a religion based upon “Hate Thy Neighbor” may be expected to have long-term cultural ripple effects that extend far beyond the direct community of the deeply pious. If nearly all Jews for a thousand or two thousand years were taught to feel a seething hatred toward all non-Jews and also developed an enormous infrastructure of cultural dishonesty to mask that attitude, it is difficult to believe that such an unfortunate history has had absolutely no consequences for our present-day world, or that of the relatively recent past.

Furthermore, Jewish hostility toward non-Jews may have often served the interests of others, and helped determine the economic role they played, especially in European countries, with this factor having been obscured by widespread ignorance of the underlying religious tenets. As most of us know from our history books, political rulers with little sympathy for their subjects sometimes restrict military power to a relatively small group of well-rewarded mercenaries, often of foreign origins so that they will have little sympathy for the population they harshly repress. I strongly suspect that some of the most common traditional economic niches of European Jews, such as tax-farming and the arrenda estate-management system of Eastern Europe, should be best understood in a similar light, with Jews being more likely to extract every last penny of value from the peasants they controlled for the benefit of their local king or lords, and their notorious antipathy for all non-Jews ensuring that such behavior was minimally tempered by any human sympathy. Thus, we should not be surprised that Jews first entered England in the train of William the Conqueror, in order to help him and his victorious Norman lords effectively exploit the subjugated Anglo-Saxon population they now ruled.

But states in which the vast majority of the population is oppressed and dominated by a thin slice of rulers and their mercenary enforcers tend to be much weaker and more brittle than those in which rulers and ruled share common interests, and I believe this is just as true for economic enforcers as for military ones. In many cases, lands reliant upon Jewish economic intermediaries, notably Poland, never successfully developed a native middle class, and often later fared quite poorly against their nationally-unified competitors. Spain was actually one of the last countries in Europe to expel its Jews, and over the next century or two reached the peak of its military and political glory. Prof. Kevin MacDonald’s controversial books on Judaism have also extensively argued that rulers who seem to have been more concerned for the well-being of their subjects also tend to be the ones more likely to be labeled “anti-Semitic” in modern history books, and his volumes are now easily available in my selection of HTML Books:

In 2009, Gene Expression blogger Razib Khan interviewed eminent evolutionary theorist David Sloan Wilson on the group selection ideas that have been his major focus. During this hour-long discussion, the theories of MacDonald became a major topic, with Wilson seeming to take them quite seriously, and pointing out that within the scientific framework “parasitism” has a simple technical definition, namely the exploitation of the large by the small. Unsurprisingly, the video record of such extremely touchy subject matter was quickly truncated to just the first 11 minutes, and eventually completely removed from both YouTube and BloggingHeadsTV. But it still at least partially survives in archived form:

In recent years, the history of Jewish expulsions from various European societies over the last thousand years has received considerable attention. The total number is somewhat disputed but almost certainly in excess of 100, with the 1930s policies of Hitler’s Germany being merely the most recent example, and Wired Magazine provided an interesting graphical presentation of this large dataset in 2013. Given these unfortunate facts, it may be difficult to point to any other group so consistently at bitter odds with its local neighbors, and the religious details provided by Shahak certainly make this remarkable historical pattern far less inexplicable.

A very even-handed but candid description of the behavior pattern of Jewish newcomers to America was provided in a chapter of a 1914 book on immigration groups by E.A. Ross, one of America’s greatest early sociologists. Ross had been one of the towering Progressive intellectuals of his era, widely quoted by Lothrop Stoddard on the Right while still so highly regarded by the Left that he was named to the Dewey Commission to adjudicate the conflicting accusations of Trotsky and Stalin and also received glowing praise in the pages of the Communist New Masses. His dismissal on political grounds from Stanford University led to the formation of the American Association of University Professors. Yet his name had so totally vanished from our history books I had never even encountered it until beginning work on my content-archiving project, and I would not be surprised if that single chapter from one of his many books played a major role in his disappearance.

Jews spent two thousand years living as a diaspora people, and their tightly-bound trans-national colonies provided them with a uniquely effective international trading network. Since their religious traditions regarded slavery as the natural and appropriate lot of all non-Jews, both ideological and practical factors combined to apparently make them some of the leading slave-traders of Medieval Europe, though this is hardly emphasized in our histories. Closer to home, in 1991 the Black Nationalists of The Nation of Islam published The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One, which seemed to persuasively document the enormous role Jews had played in the American slave-trade. In 1994, Harold Brackman published a short attempted rebuttal entitled Ministry of Lies under the auspices of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, but I found his denials much less compelling. I very much doubt that most Americans are aware of these historical facts.

 

Throughout most of my life, Nobel Laureate Alexander Solzhenitsyn was generally regarded as the greatest Russian literary figure of our modern era, and after reading all of his works, including The First Circle, Cancer Ward, and The Gulag Archipelago, I certainly concurred with this assertion, and eagerly absorbed Michael Scammel’s brilliant thousand page biography. Although Russian himself, many of his closest friends were Jewish, but during the 1980s and 1990s, whispers of his supposed anti-Semitism began floating around, probably because he had sometimes hinted at the very prominent role of Jews in both financing and leading the Bolshevik Revolution, and afterward staffing the NKVD and administering the Gulag labor camps. Late in his life, he wrote a massive two-volume history of the tangled relationship between Jews and Russians under the title Two Hundred Years Together, and although that work soon appeared in Russian, French, and German, nearly two decades later, no English translation has ever been authorized. His literary star seems also to greatly waned in America since that time, and I only very rarely see his name mentioned these days in any of my regular newspapers.

Samizdat versions of major sections of his final work may easily be located on the Internet, and a few years ago Amazon temporarily sold a 750 page hard copy edition, which I ordered and lightly skimmed. Everything seemed quite innocuous and factual, and nothing new jumped out at me, but perhaps the documentation of very heavy Jewish role in Communism was considered inappropriate for American audiences, as was the discussion of the extremely exploitative relationship between Jews and Slavic peasants in pre-revolutionary times, based on liquor-dealing and money-lending, which the Czars had often sought to mitigate.

When a ruling elite has limited connection to the population it controls, benevolent behavior is far less likely to occur, and those problems are magnified when that elite has a long tradition of ruthlessly extractive behavior. Enormous numbers of Russians suffered and died in the aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution, and given the overwhelmingly Jewish composition of the top leadership during much of that period, it is hardly surprising that “anti-Semitism” was deemed a capital offense. Kevin MacDonald may have been the one who coined the term “hostile elite,” and discussed the unfortunate consequences when a country comes under such control.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, reborn Russia soon fell under the overwhelming domination of a small group of Oligarchs, almost entirely of Jewish background, and a decade of total misery and impoverishment for the general Russian population soon followed. But once an actual Russian named Vladimir Putin regained control, these trends reversed and the lives of Russians have enormously improved since that time. America’s media organs were overwhelmingly friendly toward Russia when it was under Jewish Oligarchic rule, while Putin has been demonized in the press more ferociously than any world leader since Hitler. Indeed, our media pundits regularly identify Putin as “the new Hitler” and I actually think the analogy might be a reasonable one, but just not in the way they intend.

Sometimes it is much easier to notice obvious patterns in a foreign country than in one’s own. In the early 2000s I read The Master Switch, a widely-praised history of modern communications technology by Columbia University professor Tim Wu, who has subsequently become a leading Internet-rights activist. I found the account fascinating, with so many stories never before known to me. However, I couldn’t help but notice that all the powerful mass-media technologies of our modern world–film, radio, and television–had been invented and pioneered by Gentiles, mostly of Anglo-Saxon origin, but in each case control was seized by ruthless Jewish businessmen, who sometimes destroyed the lives and careers of those creators. By the 1950s, nearly all of America’s leading concentrations of electronic media power—with the sole major exception of Disney Studios—were solidly in Jewish hands. In an open society such as ours, these are the central levers of political influence, and over the next generation or so, America’s long-dominant and heavily Anglo-Saxon ruling elite was replaced by a mostly Jewish one, a development I alluded to in my long Meritocracy article of a few years ago.

Critics today of all backgrounds bemoan the total impoverishment of so much of America’s once comfortably affluent middle class, noting that some sixty percent of the American population today possesses less than $500 in readily available savings. A younger generation has been reduced to permanent debt-servitude by ruinous student loans, while the the newspapers report that the opioid drug epidemic has claimed a dreadful toll in lives and family-breakdown even while Wall Street and other elite sectors of the financialized economy are richer than they have ever been before. There are certainly many different explanations for this sad economic trajectory, including technological change, growing international competition, and shifts of political power in the American system of government. But it does sometimes seem like a substantial fraction of our population has been reduced to a 21st century version of the drunken, ignorant, exploited, indebted, impoverished, and immiserated Slavic peasantry of the Jewish-dominated Pale of Settlement, and a striking graph produced by the Economic Policy Institute demonstrates that a very sharp economic inflection point occurred in the early 1970s, right around the time that the aforementioned ethnic transformation of our ruling elites was fully under way.

Contrary to widespread popular belief, it is not actually illegal to be a “Nazi” in America, nor are Nazis prohibited from owning property, even including media outlets. But suppose that the overwhelming majority of America’s major media concentrations were owned and controlled by Nazis of a particularly fanatical type. Surely that might have serious consequences for the course of our society, and especially that fraction of the population viewed with considerable disfavor under Nazi doctrine.

One important point to consider in the abbreviated history of Hitler’s Third Reich was that although the ruling Nazi elite was often quite harsh and extreme in its behavior, well over 98% of the population it ruled prior to the outbreak of war consisted of Germans, the particular group which that ruling elite most sought to benefit and uplift in all possible ways, and despite the obscuring cloud of retrospective propaganda, this goal seems to have largely been achieved. In 2004, Counterpunch published a column by the late Alexander Cockburn, its redoubtable editor, noting the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies, and in 2013 that same webzine carried a much longer column focused entirely on this same subject, citing the analysis of Henry C.K. Liu, whose Chinese background provided him greater critical distance. Indeed, during most of the 1930s Hitler received widespread international praise for the great success of his domestic economic and social achievements, making the cover of Time Magazine on numerous occasions and even being named its Man of the Year for 1938. By contrast, I suspect that a population that was some 98% non-German but ruled by those same fanatically pro-German leaders might have fared far worse.

Most of these disheartening facts that have so completely upended my understanding of reality over the last decade could not possibly have come to my attention until the rise of the Internet, which partially broke centralized control over the distribution of information. But many other people surely must have known large portions of this important story long before that, and recognized the very serious consequences these matters might have for the future of our society. Why has there been so little public discussion?

I believe one factor is that over the years and the decades, our dominant media organs of news and entertainment have successfully conditioned most Americans to suffer a sort of mental allergic reaction to topics sensitive to Jews, which leads to all sorts of issues being considered absolutely out of bounds. And with America’s very powerful Jewish elites thereby insulated from almost all public scrutiny, Jewish arrogance and misbehavior remain largely unchecked and can increase completely without limit.

I’ve also sometimes suggested to people that one under-emphasized aspect of a Jewish population, greatly magnifying its problematical character, is the existence of what might be considered a biological sub-morph of exceptionally fanatical individuals, always on hair-trigger alert to launch verbal and sometimes physical attacks of unprecedented fury against anyone they regard as insufficiently friendly towards Jewish interests. Every now and then, a particularly brave or foolhardy public figure challenges some off-limits topic and is almost always overwhelmed and destroyed by a veritable swarm of these fanatical Jewish attackers. Just as the painful stings of the self-sacrificing warrior caste of an ant colony can quickly teach large predators to go elsewhere, fears of provoking these “Jewish berserkers” can often severely intimidate writers or politicians, causing them to choose their words very carefully or even completely avoid discussing certain controversial subjects, thereby greatly benefiting Jewish interests as a whole. And the more such influential people are thus intimidated into avoiding a particular topic, the more that topic is perceived as strictly taboo, and avoided by everyone else as well.

For example, about a dozen years ago I was having lunch with an especially eminent Neoconservative scholar with whom I’d become a little friendly. We were bemoaning the overwhelmingly leftward skew among America’s intellectual elites, and I suggested it largely seemed a function of our most elite universities. Many of our brightest students from across the nation entered Harvard and the other Ivies holding a variety of different ideological perspectives, but after four years departed those halls of learning overwhelmingly in left-liberal lock-step. Although he agreed with my assessment, he felt I was missing something important. He nervously glanced to both sides, shifted his head downward, and lowered his voice. “It’s the Jews,” he said.

 

I do not doubt that much of the candid analysis provided above will be quite distressing to many individuals. Indeed, some may believe that such material far exceeds the boundaries of mere “anti-Semitism” and easily crosses the threshold into constituting an actual “blood libel” against the Jewish people. That extremely harsh accusation, widely used by stalwart defenders of Israeli behavior, refers to the notorious Christian superstition, prevalent throughout most of the Middle Ages and even into more modern times, that Jews sometimes kidnapped small Christian children in order to drain their blood for use in various magic rituals, especially in connection with the Purim religious holiday. One of my more shocking discoveries of the last dozen years is that there is a fairly strong likelihood that these seemingly impossible beliefs were actually true.

I personally have no professional expertise whatsoever in Jewish ritual traditions, nor the practices of Medieval Jewry. But one of the world’s foremost scholars in that field is Ariel Toaff, professor of Jewish Renaissance and Medieval Studies at Bar-Ilan University near Tel Aviv, and himself the son of the Chief Rabbi of Rome.

In 2007, he published the Italian edition of his academic study Blood Passovers, based on many years of diligent research, assisted by his graduate students and guided by the suggestions of his various academic colleagues, with the initial print run of 1,000 copies selling out on the first day. Given Toaff’s international eminence and such enormous interest, further international distribution, including an English edition by a prestigious American academic press would normally have followed. But the ADL and various other Jewish-activist groups regarded such a possibility with extreme disfavor, and although these activists lacked any scholarly credentials, they apparently applied sufficient pressure to cancel all additional publication. Although Prof. Toaff initially attempted to stand his ground in stubborn fashion, he soon took the same course as Galileo, and his apologies naturally became the basis of the always-unreliable Wikipedia entry on the topic.

ORDER IT NOW

Eventually, an English translation of his text turned up on the Internet in a PDF format and was also placed for sale on Amazon.com, where I purchased a copy and eventually read it. Given those difficult circumstances, this work of 500 pages is hardly in ideal form, with most of the hundreds of footnotes disconnected from the text, but it still provides a reasonable means of evaluating Toaff’s controversial thesis, at least from a layman’s perspective. He certainly seems an extremely erudite scholar, drawing heavily upon the secondary literature in English, French, German, and Italian, as well as the original documentary sources in Latin, Medieval Latin, Hebrew, and Yiddish. Indeed, despite the shocking nature of the subject matter, this scholarly work is actually rather dry and somewhat dull, with very long digressions regarding the particular intrigues of various obscure Medieval Jews. My own total lack of expertise in these areas must be emphasized, but overall I thought Toaff made a quite persuasive case.

It appears that a considerable number of Ashkenazi Jews traditionally regarded Christian blood as having powerful magical properties and considered it a very valuable component of certain important ritual observances at particular religious holidays. Obviously, obtaining such blood in large amounts was fraught with considerable risk, which greatly enhanced its monetary value, and the trade in the vials of this commodity seems to have been widely practiced. Toaff notes that since the detailed descriptions of the Jewish ritualistic murder practices are very similarly described in locations widely separated by geography, language, culture, and time period, they are almost certainly independent observations of the same rite. Furthermore, he notes that when accused Jews were caught and questioned, they often correctly described obscure religious rituals which could not possibly have been known to their Gentile interrogators, who often garbled minor details. Thus, these confessions were very unlikely to have been concocted by the authorities.

Furthermore, as extensively discussed by Shahak, the world-view of traditional Judaism did involve a very widespread emphasis on magical rituals, spells, charms, and similar things, providing a context in which ritualistic murder and human sacrifice would hardly be totally unexpected.

Obviously, the ritual murder of Christian children for their blood was viewed with enormous disfavor by the local Gentile population, and the widespread belief in its existence remained a source of bitter tension between the two communities, flaring up occasionally when a Christian child mysteriously disappeared at a particular time of year, or when a body was found that exhibited suspicious types of wounds or showed a strange loss of blood. Every now and then, a particular case would reach public prominence, often leading to a political test of strength between Jewish and anti-Jewish groups. During the mid-19th century, there was one such famous case in French-dominated Syria, and just before the outbreak of the First World War, Russia was wracked by a similar political conflict in the 1913 Beilis Affair in the Ukraine.

I first encountered these very surprising ideas almost a dozen years ago in a long article by Israel Shamir that was referenced in Counterpunch, and this would definitely be worth reading as an overall summary, together with a couple of his follow-up columns, while writer Andrew Hamilton offers the most recent 2012 overview of the controversy. Shamir also helpfully provides a free copy of the book in PDF form, an updated version with the footnotes properly noted in the text. Anyway, I lack the expertise to effectively judge the likelihood of the Toaff Hypothesis, so I would invite those interested to read Toaff’s book or better yet the related articles and decide for themselves.

 

The notion that the world is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine has often been misattributed to the British astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington, and over the last fifteen-odd years I’ve sometimes begun to believe that the historical events of our own era could be considered in a similar light. I’ve also sometimes joked with my friends that when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.

    Before Hugh of Lincoln (1255) was William of Norwich (1144).
    The Italian boy was Simone of Trento (known as Simonino di Trento), whose case was addressed by Ron commenting the 'scandal' provoked by the book of Prof. Ariel Toaff "Pasque di sangue" (Blood Passover). Simonino was beatified and his cult was extremely popular in Trento until 1965 when the Catholic hierarchy 'desanctified' him and forbade the public cult.
    The 'Syrian' was Father Thomas, a French citizen originally from Sardinia, and the superior of a Franciscan convent at Damascus who disappeared along with his servant in 1840. The "Damascus Affair" brought the massive intervention of European, British and American Jews in defense of the culprits. "For the first time in American Jewish life, Jews... organized themselves politically to help Diaspora Jewry in distress."
    "For the Jews, the Damascus affair launched modern Jewish politics on an international scale, and for American Jews it represented their first effort at creating a distinctive political agenda. Just as the United States had used this affair to proclaim its presence on the global scale, so too did American Jews, in their newspapers and at mass meetings, announce to their coreligionists in France and England that they too ought to be thought of players in global Jewish diplomacy."
    In the same year (1840) we have also the "Rhodes blood libel" resulting in the same intervention from Europe. Salomon Mayer von Rothschild from Austria, Sir Moses Montefiore from England and Adolphe Cremieux from France (the founder of the Alliance Israelite Universelle) took the lead in fighting the 'blood libel'
    , @Jus' Sayin'...
    There is an oblique reference to a possible modern-times "blood libel" incident in the BBC series, "The World at War", one of the best documentaries of WW II I have seen. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_at_War#Episodes) The penultimate episode of that series, "Reckoning (April 1945)", deals with the aftermath of the war, particularly the continuing mass carnage, involving tens of millions of further deaths, which are ignored in most narratives.

    One incident, described in that episode, involved the return of two young Jewish men from a German concentration camp to their native village in Poland. Shortly after their return, these young men kidnapped and killed a Christian child. The Christian villagers responded with a pogrom in which some seventy odd Jews were killed. There was no further discussion of this incident in this episode of "The World at War".

    Most of my close friends are Jews. I'd always thought the "blood libel" was superstitious nonsense. But the bare outlines of this post-WW II incident made me re-evaluate that particular personal opinion. This well-documented incident closely paralleled, in its general course, the many stories of "blood libel" incidents from European history and folk lore. A little research confirmed that, although widely separated in time and place, these incidents and even details of these incidents resembled one another markedly. Even a far lesser extent of similar confirmatory evidence for other rumored medieval activities would result in a widespread professional agreement that such activities did occur.

    Another interesting aspect of these stories is that they often hint at pederasty and other sexual perversions. The revelations of perverse sexuality among our "elites", and particularly Jewish elites, e.g., Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, to name but a few, suggest that that such perversity may be more common among Ashkenazim than non-Jewish Europeans. Credence is lent this hypothesis by the fact that surveys of sexual behavior in Israel find reported rates of homosexual behavior that are several times higher than in any other country.

    High intelligence does seem to be related to various mental health issues, e.g., depression. I wonder if inbreeding and the cultural selection for high IQ in Ashkenazim, might have had additional negative consequences besides such autosomal recessive disorders as Tay-Sachs disease, Niemann-Pick disease, and Canavan disease. These are all diseases that primarily affect the nervous system. It seems probable to me that less conspicuous malfunctions of the brain, e.g., conditions encouraging abnormal sexual behaviors, might also be more common among Ashkenaz Jews.

    My view after reading about 'blood sacrifices', is that it is a means that a very tiny minority, perhaps just a half-dozen or so in number at any time, use to gain magical powers. For a long time I thought that such a thing is not possible for a religious Jew and I still feel that way, since there is an absolute prohibition on ingesting blood in the Old Testament. Clearly those violating the injunctions against blood cannot call themselves Jews. But unfortunately because of the incendiary nature of the crime - with the very real possibility that the surrounding Gentiles, would wipe out the entire Jewish cohort they can get their hands on - the other Jews, the majority have to willy-nilly stand by the criminals and defend them. The book by Ariel Toaff, while interesting describes no more than (IIRC) three or four cases.

    I have every sympathy for the Jews caught in this situation. When I was a young boy, I had a fear of Sikhs, since I heard a story from my Malay teacher, that railway builders would sacrifice a young boy at a railway junction, so as to propitiate the evil spirits and thus avoid accidents. Said Sikhs were supposedly on the prowl. The fact of the matter is blood is considered efficacious in Satanic rituals and human blood would then be undoubtedly the most efficacious of all.

  5. My. Well, offhand, I imagine my reaction will lie somewhere midway between the uncritical applause of the anti-semite brigade and the shocked denunciations of the guardians of political orthodxy.

    The comments I’m about to post are more or less haphazard. I merely wish to emphasize that I actually agree with most of what I read; I’m listing my points of dissent, not my points of agreement.

    First off, it’s an exaggeration — and a self-defeating one — to say that the Russian Communists were ‘overwhelmingly’ Jewish. Disproportionately, certainly, and indeed, heavily, but not ‘overwhelmingly.’ Perhaps a third of the prominent figures were Jewish. Have half. The point is that Communism, while heavily Jewish, was also gentile.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That’s obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around. The author is actually more representative of the average Jewish intellectual than he may think. Indeed, this compulsion to dissent — rather than some sinister urge to reduce the goyim to misery — may do much to explain the attraction revolutionary creeds hold for Jews.

    I’ll also note that the monolithic Judaism paradigm fails in the face of the enormous intermarriage rate among Jewish men. If there is a Jewish plot, a good half of Jewish men are completely failing to do their duty.

    So that’s about it. Revisionism — of all kinds — is good and useful. However, it usually goes too far. If the Jew as immaculately innocent and eternal victim paradigm is obviously inaccurate, it doesn’t follow that the exact opposite must be the case.

    If it wasn’t for Israel, I’d actually have no problem with Jews. I found myself confronting this when I decided to buy a camera from B&H Camera. I realized the firm is owned by Satmar Jews, who think that when the Messiah comes, all the bad gentiles will go to hell while all the good gentiles will be the slaves of Jews for all eternity.

    I thought about that for a bit, and eventually came to the conclusion that while their sentiment is hardly friendly, when the Messiah comes, we’ll find out if they’re right. In the meantime, they offer some excellent prices on cameras.

    It isn't friendly. I don't believe in it. But don't Christians believe that only Christians go to heaven? While everyone else burns for eternity?

    I don't get offended by such a belief because a) they've not made that decision b) it seems like a fairly logical corollary to their religious doctrine c) there's a practical and historical context.

    I think it was David Horowitz (the ex-communist turned Republican, not the consumer advocate) who said about Christians (I paraphrase): I don't care if they think I'm going to Hell, as long as they don't try to send me there. A very reasonable point of view, I think.

    That is nonsense - 85% of all Jews of all stripes, 100% of the time, support Zionist Israel and its mendacious occupation of Palestine. The vast majority of US Jews work to use the US government and taxpayer for Israel.

    Yes, that's more or less what I think. The eternal victims/right side of history people should give it a rest. But that doesn't mean that the opposite is automatically true. There are some really unflattering elements to Jewish history and culture and some recurring themes that have obviously lead to conflict with other groups over the years. But that doesn't mean that things have been all their fault or that Jewish people have never suffered.

    Overall, I appreciate what Ron Unz has done with The Unz Review . He's an intellectual and has interesting ideas and a sense of justice, but he's also a contrarian. But while that can be useful and justified; with this piece I think he goes much too far, and some of his assertions are clearly out of context or heavily overemphasized.

    , @NYCTexan
    Regarding the enormous intermarriage rate among Jewish men: this is true. But it is indicative of something else that Ron Unz does not touch upon in this article but is a crucial point. Judaism is often thought of as a closed hereditary religion. But this is not really true at all. It is better to think of Judaism as a club or exclusive society that takes initiates. Successful Jewish men often replenish and improve the stock with beautiful goyim women. This is perfectly legitimate as long as they convert, and the children are therefore considered fully Jewish. These marriages often do not last and most of the divorced women revert or de-convert, but the children almost always remain Jewish, or all live as Crypto-Jews who join and even lead Christian -mostly dual covenant espousing- churches.

    And this is how well meaning Jews are able to reconcile the ...unsavory part of their religion with their desire to be good to their fellow man: at least those deserving have a way to join the club. Another implication is there are a LOT more Jews globally than 15 million.

    I suspect Jews were dominant through a combination of talent, solidarity, and motivation. Picture a choir with half or one third of the members singing from the same sheet, while the rest all sing random songs; what will be the "overwhelming" impression on listeners? They will hear two things; the song of the first group, and background noise.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That’s obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around.

    This is nonsense. Ron Unz is easily the least Jewish Jew I have ever encountered. Yeah, he's a disputatious intellectual, but then again, so am I. There is absolutely NO Jewish trend to be extrapolated from Ron's behavior. He's absolutely in a class of his own when it comes to Jews who criticize Jewry and Judaism. I have come across a pretty good number of Jews who criticize Jewry or Judaism over my 15 years as an online countersemite. They tend to fall into categories, and along a spectrum of loyalty to Jews, and I've never seen another one like Ron (though I suspect they exist, in small numbers).

    I'm not saying this to butter Ron up; I have buttered Ron up before, and would happily do so again (he deserves it; I'm very grateful to him as our host, and for other things he's done down through the years), but it's not what I'm doing here. I'm saying this because it's my honest take; Ron baffles me - I have never encountered a Jew who so thoroughly breaks with the tribe. He's entirely consistent with a Jew who simply does not give any particular fuck about Jews, being a Jew, or softening the blow for Jewry. The behavior in and of itself is not baffling at all - it makes perfect sense. The baffling part is that he is also, at the same time, of Jewish extraction. In every other instance in my experience, Jews have, at some point, sided with their tribe over humanity; they may call Jews onto the carpet, and they certainly tread onto the "ANTISEMITISM!!!" carpet (what honest and aware man hasn't?), but they have all been warm, to a certain extent, to Jews. They all have a point where they say, "this far, and no further." Ron is the only Jew I've ever encountered who more or less writes like an Aryan countersemite; he writes about Jews with the voice of the other, as we do. I've never encountered someone who so thoroughly embodies the usually-disingenuous phrase, "who also happens to be Jewish." I may have Ron completely wrong, but the impression I get is that he isn't a Jew; he's an American who happens to have been born to the Tribe.

    As for your point about monolithic Judaism, I never find that sort of thing persuasive. We went to war with Germany over Nazism, and killed many thousands of Germans as a result. Nobody gave a fuck about monolithic Germans, or lack thereof. But I'm supposed to stop and quibble because G-d's Chosen are in the dock? Fuck that.


    If the Jew as immaculately innocent and eternal victim paradigm is obviously inaccurate, it doesn’t follow that the exact opposite must be the case.

  7. As a separate note, I’d add the works of a professor Klier to the reading list. He’s a Cambridge academic who’s produced some careful research on Jews in nineteenth century Russia and the actual nature and course of the various pogroms on which so much Jewish victimology rests. Certainly the evil anti-semitic Tsars and their officials emerge as much more ambiguous figures than the usual narrative would have us believe.

  9. It is worth noting in the Bible how prevalent the mention of both animal and human sacrifice is. It is also noteworthy how many ancient Jewish customs and rituals, starting with male circumcision mentioned in Genesis, are still adhered to today with pride by modern-day Jews. To dismiss any mention of the possibility of human blood ritual sacrifice without even entertaining the relevant facts bespeaks a conditioning by both Jews and non-Jews that simply will not entertain the possibility of it being true.

    The term thug is derived from the Hindi word thugee, a member of a religious sect that existed for centuries in India strangling travellers in their sleep after gaining their confidence. When the Thugs were finally broken up by the British authorities in the 19th century, they protested that they were merely serving the great goddess Kali and her need for sacrifcial victims. Who were they, mere mortals, to deny her her sacred rite right? They were merely being good devout Thugs.

    You’ve got to give Jews credit for one thing. They think BIG. Wheras the Thugs merely killed small bands of pilgrims, Jews do the same thing on a national scale.

    Fischer is another hyper-IQed guy who devoted decades of his life to reading and researching. He too came to the same conclusion as Unz regarding the evil of A.D. Judaism. Fischer near the end of his life became philosophical and then theological. He read Chesterton’s Outline of Sanity and books by Catholic theologians (not easy to come by in almost exclusively Lutheran Iceland).

    From a recent biography of Fischer:


    “Bobby [Fischer] talked with him about the transformation of society by creating harmony with one another, and then professed that he thought “the only hope for the world is through Catholicism.” (Endgame by Frank Brady, 2011)

    Adding further credibility to the notion that Christianity was created as an anti-Jewish weapon. I watched a vid on YouTube some time ago between Kevin McDonald and… I want to say David Duke? But they were getting in to that theory quite a bit.

    Though, all things considered, the modern day implications of this article only make me wish I really could rely on a holy savior descending from the sky to rescue us from such an incomprehensible evil.

    when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.

    Reminds me of the spirit cooking thing with Podesta from the 2016 election cycle. And the #PizzaGate thing. That video of the after hours event they were holding in that pizza shop still gives me the creeps.

    I often refer to people these days as cattle, for obvious reasons. But thinking about what I read here in the context of modern times…. how soul crushing it is even just to consider that we may..probably are.. quite literally be cattle for these people.

    “Adding further credibility to the notion that Christianity was created as an anti-Jewish weapon. “

    This reminds me of one of John Carpenter’s lesser known horror movies, a 1987 gem called “Prince of Darkness”. In it, one of the characters makes a discovery that Jesus was a spirit (or possibly an alien!) sent to earth to warn it about and protect it from a very real and literal demon. The Church made the decision to keep this information under wraps, and convince its followers that things such as the Devil, Hell, and evil were abstract concepts rather than a very real manifestation.

  14. Thanks to Ron for summarizing this obscure material, and his bravery and honesty in writing about it.

    What have we learned here? That European Jews, in the Christian period between antiquity and modernity, often dwelled in superstitious and tightly controlled communities, hostile to outsiders. That on several occasions, perhaps even repeatedly, they became exploitative agents of a local ruling class, alienated from the common people. That despite the secularism and reformism that dominates the modern Jewish community, the superstitious tribalism survives as an element in the political life of the nation-state of Israel, and the rapacious economic practices as an element in the business life of modern America. That’s my instant synopsis.

    And here are the indispensable truths to carry forward:

    Jews as a group will remain the same until such time as converted completely, truly, to Christ.

    Because being anti-Christ is central to Jewish identity, and because only European peoples built a Christian civilization, Jewish culture will always be viciously anti-white Gentile, because Christ-hating Jews feel they are justified in Christ-hating if they can defeat, subdue, ruin the peoples of historic Christendom.

    Protestantism even under the 'anti-Semite Luther' is a series of heresies that requires Judaizing.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a thoroughly Judaizing heresy that formed the final, and most important (because theological and therefore both spiritual and moral) basis of WASP culture.

    The British Empire spread the fruits of WASP Judaizing across the globe. The Yank Empire has continued the spread, and entrenchment, of stridently pro-Jewish culture across the globe.

    “One or the one” should probably be “one or the other.”

    “Discontented facts” should probably be “disconnected facts.”

    “Lenni Brunner” should be Lenni Brenner.

    All in all, I found this a solid summary of some interesting but obscure factual claims. I think it was somewhat irresponsible not include a discussion of just how widespread such beliefs, attitudes and practices are among Jews today.

  16. Blood Passover is made more believable generally by consideration of the entirely authority plus faith based persecution of non existent witches. Great Britain had become quite moderate until James 1′s experience in Denmark when he was James VI of Scotland picking up his bride turned him into a scholar of Demonologie and, despite his son Charles 1 putting a damper on witchhunting it took off during the civil war about 1645 and led to the killing of hundreds of witches over the next hundred years. Local villagers were often the accusers for pecuniary or other malign motives and de facto circumvention of legal restrictions on torture were common. Not the same obviously but it makes belief in almost any primitive practices quite credible.

  17. Ron, as a Jew raised in the Reform tradition, I can’t speak to the claims about Talmudic Judaism. But your claims that “our media pundits regularly identify Putin as ‘the new Hitler’” seems largely untrue. A quick Google search on “the new Hitler” turns up only 70,000 results, links that refer mostly to Saddam Hussain, various Iranian leaders, and Trump. A search for “the new Hitler” and “Putin” turns up only 17,000 results and from what I can tell many of the linked stories criticize the formulation. Can you point to even two or three significant pundits who have called Putin “the new Hitler”?

    I’m also no expert on the subject of Hitler’s economic policies, but I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing “the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies” is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It’s true as far as it goes, but it doesn’t go very far.

    As to all the claims about pre-modern Judaism, I can’t say, but many of the practices and superstitions you cite don’t seem very different from contemporaneous Christianity. And your dark musings on the lasting impact of the alleged centuries of inculcated “seething hatred” for Christians doesn’t jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that’s conspicuous in its absence.

    Germany and Italy were the only two developed countries that extricated themselves from the Great Depression without resorting to war. They did this primarily through massive, publicly-funded development of infrastructure, e.g., Hitler's Autobahn and the related mass production of Volkswagens and Mussolini's getting the railroads to run on time. Orwell, no fan of the Nazis, admitted that German youths were much healthier than British youths; the former had thrived under the economic and social policies of the Third Reich. Eisenhower, actually emulated Hitler when he became President. It's rather obvious that the USA's interstate highway system, which Eisenhower used as a tool to boost the postwar US economy, was modeled on the Autobahn system Eisenhower observed in occupied Germany.

    "Coming wartime plunder" is what the jews were counting on when they declared war on Germany in 1933. Wartime plunder is what germany was paying to jewish banks in the form of reparations, when Hitler came to power and said Nein. So the jews started WWII in order to plunder Germany, France, Poland, and all of central Europe.

    I have been contending for weeks here at unz.com that jews, who like to consider themselves "smart", are really as dumb as jackasses wearing blinders. A glaring example of their willful ignorance would be blood sacrifice, which the majority of jews think is, and Unz still hints at just to feed their willful denial, is a "Christian Superstition".

    Even though their tribe has clearly regularly been murdering and torturing infants over the centuries and then trading their blood and organs for profit, Jews simply don't want goyim to know that they know. Clearly, neither does Andrew Gilbert, a "Jew raised in the Reform tradition", who is, typically for a heeb, afraid to even mention the jews greatest achievement: rituals and sacrifices with goyim infants. Hundreds of different types.

    If he really believed Blood Sacrifice is false, and an extreme slander, then Gilbert should have been indignant. Or, he knows but he lies. Like Eli Weasel's "It happened in my mind", or in Gilberts case "There was never blood sacrifice in my mind".

    Adolf Hitlers Germany was destroyed because it broke free of the international hyenas of world fiance by abolishing interest altogether on private home loans, stopping all commercial and industrial interest payments from going to international corporations and having that money go back into the National economy, a complete abolishment of interest servitude of the Nation to International Finance Capital. I would suggest you read up on Gottfried Feder and how he devised Germany's debt-free monetary and banking system.
    .....
    Born in Würzburg in 1883 Gottfried Feder was a leading German provider of ideas, “the refractive Interest Enslavement” by the world finance capital. Feder was known far beyond the borders of Germany and his ideas and work continues today. As an engineer and economist Feder was first among economic policymakers in the DAP (precursor of the nsDAP) and was a short time later commissioned by Adolf Hitler to design the nsDAP party program (the 25 points of National Socialism)

    In the nsDAP party program, Feder’s ideas from his “manifest refraction of interest servitude of money,” were reflected. This “program” is from 1919 (the year of the Versailles diktat and the adoption of the Weimar Constitution) at the focal point of contemporary history. Feder’s approach against the existing financial system and interest arose in its first edition in response to the runaway national debt and the resulting inflation in defeated Germany after the First World War.

    With the end of the war in 1918, the Reichsmark had already officially lost more than half of its purchasing power in internal and external relations, which was much higher on the black market inflation index. The end of 1923 then broke the entire German economy and combined with the Weimar Hyperinflation produced by the victors and henchman: Hunger, poverty and a crying misery were the consequences. The Germans were akin to a “dying” people.

    To enforce its policy objectives Feder founded in 1919 one of the many battle confederations, this time the (German League of Struggle for the breaking of interest servitude). However contents of his claims were not, as is often assumed, a complete ban on interest, but numerous changes in government economic and financial policy. A major criticism of Feder was the inclusion of high-yield loans by the state while simultaneously dispensing with the state sovereignty of the money making and money distribution.

    In another pamphlet Feder in 1919 saw the way the bankruptcy was almost upon Germany. Only ten years after Feder’s first publication of his manifest refraction ideology, in 1929, it came to the complete breakdown of international exchanges. Suddenly the collapse of all currencies of stability and value worldwide occurred. In Germany they gave out in the early 1920s, emergency money. In wake of the global economic crisis, entire industries were transferred into foreign hands. So, for example, the German Opel plants fell to American hands, to name just one example.

    In 1923 Feder took part in the Hitler Putsch (March on the Feldherrenhalle in Munich). Nevertheless, he remained a leading figure not only in the nsDAP, but also in the thinking financial circles in Germany. In 1924 he was elected to the National Socialist Freedom Party in the Reichstag; he remained a member until 1936. From 1933 Feder is engaged in freezing the interest rates (in fact it was the abolition of the compounding system). His concept of “the breaking of interest servitude” came under Adolf Hitler as Chancellor to develop, Germany awoke to new life and flourished again.

    When Adolf Hitler was appointed on 30 January 1933 by President Paul von Hindenburg with the task of leading the nsDAP government and sworn in as Chancellor, the new Chancellor was clear that the powerful militarily enemies waiting around an encircled Germany for an opportunity with a new war to crush any attempt at liberation of the German people. This has been reflected by the fact that just a day after the Democratic confirmation of Adolf Hitler in the Reichstag, world jewry on March 24, 1933 declared war on Germany. [1]

    The winner required by the tribute of Versailles and the privatization of the Reichsbank (paraphrased “independent”) with your(world jews yes you) man in Germany for this project was the Masonic Hjalmar Schacht, the remaining gold reserves of the Reichsbank, were removed “to be stored” by the private jewish Federal Reserve of the USA (FED).

    In 1953 Hjalmar Schacht admitted in his autobiography, that he visited the FED in 1927 to inspect the German gold, he casually describes as follows: “A different experience resulted from the fact that the Reichsbank maintained a not inconsiderable gold deposit at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. Strong was very proud to show us the safes in the deep basement of the building, and mentioned here: ‘Dr. Schacht, now you will also see where the gold of the Reichsbank is preserved ‘. We walked through the vaults, while the officers searched the storage space of the Reichsbank gold. We waited many minutes until finally came the information: ‘Mr. Strong, we can not find the gold from the Reichsbank ‘. Strong was very upset, but I comforted him: ‘Let’s be good, I believe you, that the gold is there. Even if it should not be there, you are good to me for the replacement. ‘”[2]

    It is hardly surprising that it was completely indifferent to Schacht, whether the German gold was gone, as Benjamin Strong, former president of the Private jewish Federal Reserve, was his personal friend and lodge brother. And the gold, of course never, appeared. Just as today, when the FRG-Gold has also disappeared at the Fed in New York.

    It was the same Horace Greeley Hjalmar Schacht, who, in 1914 in the Journal of the lodge “To friendship of the Grand Lodge of Prussia” in the first week of the war published an essay in which he emphasized that “the German Freemasonry have never given room to exaggerated nationalist sentiments”.

    Schacht, who contributed significantly to the Reichsbank Act (RBG) in 1924, making sure the so-called Reichsbank Autonomy Law was further replaced on 26 May 1922 in the direction of Rothschild control. The creation of a “by the imperial government independent Reichsbank” was guaranteed by Paragraph 1 of the new RBG. Under the Reichsbank Law Germany had already dictated the Dawes Plan as a contract item. The Reparations Commission decided on 30 November 1923 namely the convening of an expert committee under the chairmanship of financial experts appointed by the FED Charles Gates Dawes, who should decide how one could demand from Germany reparations forever. The Reichsbank was now driven by a 14-member General Council (seven of them foreigners) under the leadership of the United States. The gold standard was monitored by a foreign Commissioner and was in accordance with paragraph 28 of the RBG 40 percent, which is why the German gold had to be deposited “as security” at the FED.

    The German henchmen for the financial world, who had to lead the privatization of the German Reichsbank, was, as already mentioned, Hjalmar Schacht, the personal friend of Lord Montague Norman. Lord Norman was the governor of the then Bank of England, who received his instructions directly from the House of Rothschild. “The activities of the British oligarchy were whipped by a cabal of central bankers, led by Lord Montague Norman together with Benjamin Strong [3] of the New York Fed and Hjalmar Schacht of the German Reichsbank.” [4]

    Schacht belonged to the then world-elite of the global financial crime. “Benjamin Strong, the first president of the FED, Hjalmar Schacht, President of the Reichsbank, Montague Norman, Governor of the Bank of England and Émile Moreau, governor of the Bank of France, were the most powerful and influential bankers of their time.” [5]

    When Hjalmar Schacht was officially designated as one of the four most powerful central bankers of the world, although he represented the “national” bank of a totally robbed, bankrupt, occupied and completely defenseless state, then one can conclude only that the ascribed power within the jewish lodges was exercised against Germany.

    The defeated Germany was bled by the Rothschilds winner policy after 1918, in the truest sense of the word. 45 percent of the reparations had in kind (industrial goods, goods, etc.) are provided, 55 percent in foreign currencies, including also – had to be exchanged property. The German people had thus no productive support for an acceptable livelihood anymore. Just for interest and principal, the German Reich had to raise 16 billion gold marks, with which the industry was burdened and overwhelmed. To secure these tribute payments, Reichsbank and German Reichsbahn were transformed into joint stock companies (privatization), and were under the control of FED and City… New York

    As at the end of the 1920s, the National Socialist Freedom Movement becoming stronger and a shift of power towards Adolf Hitler was likely to occur, suddenly Free Mason and friend of the exploiters, Hjalmar Schacht, begins to flirt with the Nationalists. “When he shows up with his wife Louise at a dinner party in 1930, she is wearing, studded with rubies and diamonds, on a chain, a Hakenkreuz. ‘Why not give the Nationalists a chance? You seem pretty sharp to me, ‘ said Schacht to a stunned reporter “. [6] In October 1931 Schacht was making a sensational speech at the meeting of the nsDAP, The DNVP and the Stahlhelm in Bad Harzburg before the “Harzburg Front” In which he launched a polemical attack of his own, and enforced on behalf of Benjamin Strong and Sir Montague Norman privatization of the Reichsbank. In 1932 Schacht began to support the nsDAP openly.

    It is not as though Adolf Hitler would not have seen through the game. He knew that Schacht on behalf of the jewish world finance would seek to ensure in a new Germany the continuation of politics by private banks. Hitler knew also that he in a state of total helplessness, should he become Chancellor (Germany had as it were no more armed forces, only a barely armed 100-thousand-man army) he would have to hold out against the Reich’s enemies. So Hitler played the game and made Schacht on March 17, 1933 re-elected president of the Reichsbank.

    Of course, the House of Rothschild members appointed by the General Council of the Reichsbank were ousted immediately. The Reichsbank had to realize that “the breaking of interest servitude of money” would commence immediately after Hitler’s appointment as chancellor. Schacht remained nothing more than watching idly the liberation of Germany. Germany’s enemies, however, believed to be able to compel Hitler with sanctions to restore the old Monetary Exploitation order again. Schacht should then be active again as before.

    But Adolf Hitler ended the destructive influence of the monetary system of the FED and City of New York to Germany by a new barter agreement. The raw material imports in exchange trading increased between 1933 and 1937 of 1.4 billion marks to two billion Reichsmarks, while the finished goods imports by 500 million Reichsmark fell to just under 400 million marks. Trade in Scandinavia, South East Europe and Latin America had intensified and cash settled through clearing and exchange of commodities, which threatened the financial existence of the international power of the New York and London money-lenders.

    In this time of military reluctance of the West, who still sat on the return of Hjalmar Schacht to the levers of financial power in the new Germany, Germany was at least as far as upgrading, that would have been a war against Germany involves risks. Under this shield of brilliant foreign policy of Adolf Hitler still in 1933 the dying German people flourished to life. The words of former British Prime Minister Lloyd George on his return from a trip to Germany before the waiting journalists in London in September 1936 will remain forever in your memory. After his daughter exclaimed in the mics, “Heil Hitler”, Lloyd George added as confident: “Yes, certainly, Heil Hitler I say this because he is truly a great man..” [7]

    Hitler humbled the hate of the world finance by having her own husband, Hjalmar Schacht, lead the negotiations for the emigration of the jews in London in December 1938 in said “inter alia” what became known as the pit-Rublee plan, a contract resulted.

    On January 19, 1939, Schacht was officially stripped of his mission that he should exercise for FED and City of New York in secret. He was dismissed as Reichsbank president. Six months later, on June 15, 1939, the Reichstag voted on the new Reichsbank law. In Reich Law Gazette 1939 I, p 1015, 1030 was now stipulated that the Reichsbank was to “ensure the utilization of the available funds of the German economy in nonprofit and economically expedient manner.” “In the form of profitless”, ie without interest.

    This policy began in 1933 for the benefit of the German people, now enshrined in law, the final decision of the jewish world finance had fallen in London and New York, to launch a new world war for the destruction of Germany. The rest was from then on only provocation, encirclement, lies and violence, until the official British and French declaration of war on 3 September 1939 against Germany.

    End of 1932 saw the German price-adjusted gross domestic product a negative growth of 7.5 percent. Adolf Hitler was born on 30 January 1933 to power and in February 1933 he designed the monetary policy of the Reichsbank, ousted the foreign members of the General Council. This meant that before the end of 1933 the real gross national product (GNP) grew by 6 percent increase.

    As early as 1937 Hitler had economic and monetary policy ensure that, despite the imposed sanctions against the Reich, a growth of over 10 percent was achieved. But more importantly, at a 10 percent economic growth rate increase under Hitler’s monetary policy, inflation was at zero percent, and there were no unemployed. Even in wartime, there were no price increases, no budget deficit, but there was growth. [8] Adolf Hitler had therefore left his destroyed people with no debt after the end of the “World War staged by the Democrats”, which was even admitted by BRD Finance Minister Schäuble. Wolfgang Schäuble literally: “For the last time the country was debt free in 1948, after war and dictatorship.” [9] And he is not even ashamed at these words.

    Thus could the German people only afford Adolf Hitler, because he made Germany sovereign, because the sovereignty over the labor power and the money was in the hands of the working people and was not subjected to the dictatorship of Wall Street Speculators.

    And now we have even worse conditions than in the dark period of the Weimar Republic under the Murder of Versailles. The pain we will feel soon. The chief editor of the Economic week, Stefan Baron, already warned 22 years ago prior to this case: “The Treaty of Maastricht threatened that Germany impose heavier loads than those in the Treaty of Versailles prescribed after the First World War reparations Only. Versailles was a dictation, Maastricht, the government [Kohl] concluded voluntarily. “[10]

    Today, when the ECB is run by former Goldman Sachs director Mario Draghi, who provides for the production and use of the Euro-currency, all the conditions are created for the Germans, having to suffer a collapse like 1923 and 1929 again.

    The FRG does not have to determine their own destiny, has no say in monetary policy. And that is also celebrated enthusiastically by the henchmen of the international monetary system, forward Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU Minister of Finance).

    Today, ECB chief Draghi calls on behalf of Goldman Sachs high inflation in Germany to lift the zero-growth in the euro zone to 1 percent growth. Draghi’s slogan: “Inflation must be found – at any cost only inflation means growth.”. [11] Under Hitler it was 10 per cent growth at 0 percent inflation. Does it not sound like newly launched Versailles-mockery, as the FRG Minister of Finance on 5 September 2012 at the ZDF Heute-Journal said unabashedly: “But I’m quite sure, the Governing Council is aware, the ECB’s mandate is focused on the priority of price stability”.

    We know that the world finance has always pocketed most of the money for wars and inflation, so this extermination of monetary policy of the lobby with its instrument ECB is only logical. In this sense, promised BRD Finance, Rothschild’s rolling debt generator, on the edge of monetary conference in 2013 in Washington, wanting to run the command for permanent debt increase without objection in the future. Schäuble was asked the question, when then will Germany have repaid this debt. Subsequently Schäuble: “Hopefully never!” [12]

    The formula for prosperity would be so easy for politicians and statesmen, if you only served the people and not the international bankers. The robbery of the people by the world finance using their deadly monetary and financial system must be stopped. The States must be sovereign over the production of their own money. Gottfried Feder explained this published in his “manifest refraction of interest servitude” so wonderful. “Every capital is accumulated labor, Big capital is unproductive in itself, precisely because money itself is a quite barren matter. Of spirit, work and existing or already developed raw materials or natural resources are created values, goods produced by labor and only by labor. ”

    This principle for the flourishing of human existence was followed under Adolf Hitler, and so he could make from a wreck of world finance a people who again could be “a happy nation.”

    Take the example of the House of Rothschild, which still had no money in 1800, but exceeded in the shortest possible time without productive, value-generating activities that a minimum living industry capital several times. These again Gottfried Feder declared to us in his book: “The fortune of the house of Rothschild, the oldest international plutocracy, is now [1919] estimated at about 40 billion. It is known that the old Amschel Mayer Rothschild in Frankfurt layed the basis for the tremendous wealth of his house around the year 1800 by re-awarding the millions which had been transferred to him from Landgrave William of Hesse for storage, without any of his own appreciable fortune.”

    What we are witnessing today, the plundering of the people by the ECB, is just the continuation of what had begun more than 300 years ago in England. After Cromwell had again brought the jews, 400 years after their expulsion back to England, a new era of the monetary system began to be laid. ”

    In the chapter on the owner of the shares of the Bank of England (1694-1797) in his book on the history of the Bank, Sir John Clapham, noted the high proportion of Spanish and Portuguese names of sephardic jews which appeared on the list of shareholders in the early years of the English central bank. He noted that these names from 1701 actually constituted 90 percent of the 107 founding members of the Bank of England. Among them were two da Costa, a Fonseca, a Henriquez, a Mendes, a Nuñes, one Rodrigues, a Salvador, a Teixeira de Mattos, a Solomon de Medina. Clapham pointed to a parallel with the Bank of Amsterdam, on incorporation were 25 jews among the owners. M. Hyamson writes in his book, The Sephardim of England, that a certain Jacob Henriquez immediately after the coronation of King George III, in the context of a petition referred to the merits of his father in founding the Bank of England.

    With the creation of a private institution as a central bank of the British Empire the money conspirators stood in the truest sense of the word, open to all possibilities. All they had to do in order to deliver half of the globe as tribute was to provide a ridiculous sum to deposit as initial capital of the Bank of England. Only a few years after the founding of the private British central bank, paper money was introduced. The owners of the Federal Reserve could print on paper and lend it to the government, the institutions and the private sector at interest (tribute). Therefore, the taxes increased dramatically in all areas, for from henceforth all had indeed been delivered to any amount of printed paper rate tribute/debt. No one questioned why the state does not even print the paper and therefore spare the people the monstrous tribute load.

    To summarize: With the sovereignty over their own money producing Hitler created prosperity and growth, without price increase and without inflation. Today, the world finance manages, with the sovereignty over our money, poverty and inflation but does not want us to see that we must unfortunately soon feel it.

    And so the terrible world finance system, the Fed remains intact, we are held,with the help of the biggest lies in human history preventing us from studying Adolf Hitler’s economic policies. Professor Michael Hudson, who teaches at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, explained in no uncertain terms that Wall Street was responsible for the imposition of German historical lies. Hudson: “You can not in Germany teach history as it was, without being fired. … The whole theory of debt policy was then developed by Wall Street. Suddenly you gave the Germans a false story. Consider the German school books, and the propaganda of the banks, month after month, year after year. “[13]

    And the highly respected Russian historian and former Soviet Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany, Valentin Falin, replied on 16 September 2014 in a panel discussion on Russian state television, on the question of whether he with the official history that is taught in schools and universities in Russia was dissatisfied, he replied as follows: “I am not satisfied in principal with the official version of history, both the 20th and 19th century. … The historian can only successfully tackle their task when they are concentrating on facts, only facts and all of the facts. So we must consider events as a whole, we must look closely when the second world war really began and weather it was a continuation of the first world war in reality.”

    http://www.nationalists.org/pdf/hitler/manifesto-for-abolition-enslavement-interest-on-money-gottfried-feder.pdf

    On top of freeing Germany from all Jewish influence, Hitler nearly eradicated unemployment in the country. Under National Socialist economic policies, unemployment went from 30.1% in 1932 to 2.1% in 1938.

    that 0% interest loans were given for residential housing, Not only that, the principal debt was forgiven 25% per child born, so after 4 children born the entire loan was cancelled and no more payments were made. Can you imagine this? There was never a financial crisis in Hitler’s Germany. In order to stimulate the economy, it was necessary to have the nerve, as Hitler had, to invest money that the government did not really have, rather than wait with folded arms and an empty head for the economy to revive by itself.

    Before the end of 1933 even, Hitler had succeeded in building 202,119 housing units, In 4 years he would provide the German people with 1,458,128 new dwellings. All of this was made available by issuing loans to private sector housing at 0% interest. In 1933 alone 17,611 new farm houses were constructed each surrounded by a parcel of land 1,000 meters square. In 3 years Hitler would build 91,000 such farm house as part of elevating and reinvigorating the working farming class. Again, all of this would be provided as part of 0% interest loans as an effective means of rebuilding the economy and providing jobs at the same time.

    Usually it is said that Mohammad copied all the stories from Bible but got them wrong. So, everyone dismisses Mohammad stories.

    For example, Kabbah in Mecca, Saudi Arabia was build by Abraham and his son Ismael. Where is Egypt and where is Saudi Arabia. How did Abraham wound up in Saudi Arabia?

    In "Misquoting Jesus" the author claims that he has taken the effect of Greek Language on the New Testament. Why is New Testament not in Hebrew or Aramaic?

    It is claimed that Torah, the first five books in TaNaKh (Old Testament) were given to Moses in written form. The Semitic language including Hebrew were not evolved enough to be put anything in written form.

    In fact, when the Quran was revealed, no Semitic Language were evolved enough including Arabic, to put the Quran in written form. The first Quran which was put in written form by the Third Caliph Usman was in Old (Modern) Arabic without vowels and lacked dots for the letters. For example, letter "B" has a dot below the moon, and letter "N" has a dot over the moon, so how can one distinguish between letters. No dots in the first written Quran.

    Seventy five years after Mohammad demise the Quran was put in proper Arabic called, Quranic Arabic or Classical Arabic. TaNaKh until 12th centuries only had constant words without vowels, just like the first written Quran. The vowels added to TaNaKh through 12th to 15th century from Quranic Arabic.

    Jesus spoke Aramaic to his disciples not Hebrew. Hebrew was revived in early 20th century from Arabic.

  22. This was an extraordinary article. Thank you, Ron Unz. Warning: you are being monitored, Ron, around the clock (of course you already know this).

    This just in:

    The International Coalition Against Anti-Semitsm and White Supremacy (ICAAWS) wants UNZ.com shut down and Ron Unz held responsible for the ‘disturbing’ rise in anti-Semitic hate crimes and unprovoked attacks upon innocent Jews around the world. It’s reaching epidemic proportions!

    Actually, this hysterical malarkey is not exactly true. Ron’s not facing any lawsuits or indictments (yet) and the organization above does not exist (at least as far as I know). But there are dozens of similar-sounding organizations which do. And they’re deadly serious about “stopping the hate”–even in online discussions where Jewish conduct is criticized and where remarkable disclosures concerning Jewish history and ‘beliefs’ are revealed.

    Ron: You are trafficking in blood libels!

    This part is true: at this moment, scores of Jewish scholars, attorneys, lobbyists, activists, intellectuals, ‘philanthropists’, political experts and media operatives are working feverishly and cooperatively to impose limits on political speech and even draft legislation that will criminalize and eventually eradicate the global ‘scourge’ of anti-Semitism. This includes you, dear reader. You’ve got the disease!

    That’s how the official story might read, anyway.

    But let’s not kid ourselves. Jews do have a problem.

    No matter how collectively powerful, accomplished, secure, connected and wealthy they become, the chosen people are constantly aspiring for more. More!

    As the Torah instructs, they must ‘rule the nations’ (all of them).

    More land, more prestige, more wealth, more glory. Even more shiksas! (As Harvey W. knows).

    This unquenchable appetite of theirs invariably spills over and into neighboring cultures, populations and states. Jews may be small in number but their footprint is large. Very large. Thus ‘anti-Semitism’. And to make matters worse, their ‘religion’ is a hodge-podge of macabre superstitions, outright satanism, and supreme self-worship. This makes them less-than-ideal neighbors.

    I can only imagine the intense interest and ‘outrage’ (one of their favorite words) felt by world’s foremost deceivers, hypocrites, self-deceivers when they read an article like this, Mr. Unz. Like Shahak, you are telling the truth as you find it. And that makes them mad. Very mad.

    Don’t you dare say that!

    Unvarnished disclosures can nourish ‘anti-Semitism’! And mere truth is no defense.

    Jewish safety (and Jewish souls) are just too damn important. Kosher taboos must therefore be observed. And obeyed.

    This is why the chosen people have become the world’s foremost censors. Unfettered discourse and unobstructed scholarship jeopardizes their precious Narrative (just as it threatens the official Holocaust yarn). So shut up. Free Speech has its limits.

    (((They))) will tell you just what those limits are once you’ve violated them. Be careful. Tread lightly.

    Indeed, I do recall seeing as small article about Toaff’s provocative book (this was well over 20 years ago) in a local SF newspaper that indicated that “political pressures” forced its ‘cancellation’.

    Decades earlier, a Japanese writer (whose name I do not recall) attempted to publish a book in Japan that posited the view that Jews controlled the Western world. This book too never saw the light of day. Even Japan (way over yonder) was brought to heel by the (((guardians of discourse))).

    And I also distinctly remember the article (and photo) that also appeared decades ago in the SF Chronicle which described the incident where revisionist historian, David Irving, was physically attacked in an auditorium at Cal Berkeley (home of America’s ‘legendary’ Free Speech movement) for being a ‘Nazi apologist’. Yet there was no public ‘outrage’ over the politically-driven, physical attack upon a scholar speaking in Berkeley. None.

    Irving ‘deserved’ it.

    The always-protesting Left had nothing to say (or if they did, it went unrecorded) about this frontal assault on intellectual freedom at Berkeley. Gee. Odd.

    The ACLU was AWOL. No professors came to Irving’s defense. To quote a cliche adored by the vociferous Left: ‘the silence was deafening’.

    And throughout the mainstream press at that time, there was no defense of Mr. Irving’s right to discuss his book (‘Hitler’s War’) at Berkeley; nor was there any kind of counter-protest at Berkeley to defend Irving’s clear, constitutionally-guaranteed right to address an audience in an academic setting. None.

    What’s wrong with this picture?

    And it happened at Berkeley.

    The totalitarian (((Left))) rules the academy as well as our news institutions. And that’s not all.

    Thankfully, we now have a free and gloriously open internet. The marketplace of ideas has arrived.
    But I lived through an era when all we had was (((mainstream))) news and prime time entertainment. America was even more zombified then than now.

    Nevertheless, Americans still live under a soft occupation. We are allowed (encouraged) to get obnoxiously and deliriously excited over a football game. One may also champion this Democrat candidate over that Republican one (or visa-versa)– but Americans are not really allowed to stray too far from the contrived ‘center’ of our culture’s political ‘center’. This violation of standards is what the ‘far right’ does. And it makes them ‘extreme’.

    So America’s political center has been given a loose definition. It includes the global security state, Zio-Washington’s global military empire, our two-Party duopoly, Russia-phobia, Iran-phobia, Hamas-phobia, political protocols which undermine white cohesion, as well the ‘unshakable’ commitment to virtually all political objectives sought by the Zionist state.

    Sometimes reality is indeed stranger than fiction.

    Chicago's legendary journalist Mike Royko had it right when he dubbed Mario Savio's antics at Berkeley as the Foul Speech Movement. It continues long after his passing. I have to admit that I'm still digesting this rather long article, but I'm impressed at the dispassionate tone of it. And at the similar tone of the link to Kevin MacDonald's essay. Usually, such articles are so phlegm-flecked that I have to look askance at them. MacDonald's essay seems to provide a rationale for the seemingly irrational fear of Christian America--a very tolerant bunch--by most of the Jewish commentariat. To the point that they eagerly endorse mass immigration by overtly anti-Semitic Middle Ostogoths and probably anti-Semitic peasants from Los Culitos del Sur.

    I have to take issue with this. No matter how powerful, accomplished, connected, and wealthy it becomes, diaspora Jewry is never secure. Its power always relies upon the consent of the governed, so to speak. That power is always soft power that could blow away in a political wind in moments. This is baked into the Jewish cake - it's the inevitable consequence of Jewish separatism and elitism. You can't have both the numbers, and be an elite. You can't be both exclusive, and inclusive. The Jewish diaspora is always one political sea change away from a total loss of power. That's a big part of why they're always on the offensive. Which is of course also why their history is so "lachrymose."

    At some point the Jewish elite, the head, detached itself from the Jewish body and decided to live by attaching itself to humanity's body. The world has been suffering the consequences of that decision ever since. Israel offers Jews a third option (1 and 2 being Judaism and assimilation), the opportunity to be a real, independent people again.

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch’s analysis that appeared to refute your article’s claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch’s did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    Ms. Baytch took it upon herself to correct me, inter alia, at the very beginning of the comment thread to one of Mr. Unz’ many other postings here having to do with his meritocracy research:

    http://www.unz.com/runz/asian-quotas-in-the-ivy-league-we-see-nothing/

    As pointed out by me to Ms. Baytch, in our extensive replies to one another in that particular comment thread, the “Harvard Crimson” survey findings that she cites are (along with their being social-scientifically dubious per se) about incoming freshmen’s religious affiliations, not their ethnic descent or identity. My Jewish brother-in-law, who was an Harvard undergraduate at the same time as Mr. Unz, is deeply into his Jewish identity; but, he also is an avowed atheist, despite his being formally bar mitzvahed as an adolescent, and he never would have claimed to be “Jewish” in the actual sense that that survey was asking of its respondents. I strongly suspect that a majority of the freshman at Harvard who identify as being Jewish, ethnically and socioculturally, would not claim that Judaism was their personal religious faith, whether they were being asked the question by their student newspaper or by the United States Bureau of the Census.

    Actually, I've responded to her total nonsense over and over again. But I suppose I might as well do so one more time, merely by republishing a previous lengthy comment of mine from a couple of months ago:

    http://www.unz.com/article/a-reply-to-jordan-peterson/#comment-2345137


    However, according to The Harvard Crimson’s Class of 2017 Freshman Survey, only 9.5% of Harvard freshmen identify their religious affiliation as Jewish.
     
    Ha, ha, ha. It’s nice to see that our good friend “Tyrion 2″ is doing his best to confirm my finding that Jews these days are not particularly bright, and perhaps providing some additional evidence that dim-wittedness is particularly strong among the fanatic ethnic-activist segment of Jewry, including himself.

    Okay, so he located an extremely helpful datapoint that 9.5% of the Harvard Class of 2017 are *religiously* Jewish. However, it only took me a few seconds to locate this Haaretz article:

    https://www.haaretz.com/jewish/jews-least-observant-int-l-poll-finds-1.5287579

    It notes that Jews are among the world’s *least* religious groups, and that worldwide only 38% of (ethnic) Jews follow the Jewish *religion*. Assuming that The Crimson survey is correct and Harvard Jews are typical of those worldwide, this would imply that 9.5% / 0.38 = 25%(!!!) of Harvard freshmen are *ethnically* Jewish, which by an astonishing coincidence is *exactly* the Hillel figure I was using. I think I’d call that a game-ending own-goal…

    Indeed, since religiosity is especially strong among ultra-Orthodox Jews who are very mediocre in their academic achievement, while America’s most academically elite groups—Jew or Gentile—tend to be among the least religious, this figure might even be an underestimate. Certainly back during my own Harvard days, I’d have been astonished if even 1/3 of the Jews I knew practiced “the Jewish religion.”

    Jewish-activists are notorious for playing these sorts of very slippery definitional games. For example, I wouldn’t be surprised if “Tyrion 2″ were to claim that there had never been a single “Jewish Communist.” How could there be, since Communists by definition practice no religion.
     
    Incidentally, having personally met that "Nurit Baytch" woman when I was giving a talk on my Meritocracy article at the University of Chicago Law School, she seemed an absolutely perfect example of the fanatic "Jewish berserker" type I was discussing in my article. And my Yale Law School lecture had quite a number of them in the audience.

    Otherwise, I'd like to thank many of the other commenters for their very kind words, and also catching a number of my careless typos, which I've now corrected.

These numbers combined make Harvard’s Jewish student population ~33% of the student body.:


    6712 Undergrads

    Since Haredi Jews mostly don’t attend regular universities and pursue religious rather than intellectual/scientific studies, even though they are mostly based in “major urban centers”, at least 10% of the Jewish community, in the northeastern United States and in the United Kingdom likely closer to 20%, would not apply to elite universities, which makes the Jewish overrepresentation at the Ivy League, etc. even starker than Mr. Unz documented

    There were also some remarkable ironies, and not long afterward I joked to a (Jewish) friend of mine that I’d suddenly discovered that Naziism could best be described as “Judaism for Wimps” or perhaps Judaism as practiced by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

    The first time I have encountered the idea that Nazism emulated Judaism was in Umberto Eco’s essay in a niche art journal. Recently I tried to locate it bu I failed. That I do not reminder the name of the journal does not help.

    It is interesting that a Polish historian wrote about Nazism as an emulation of Judaism already before the WWII and then in underground publications during the WWII in Poland. He worked on his Jewish Civilization before the WWII which finished right after the war. It has been published since in Polish but for obvious reasons not widely know. Supposedly an English translation from a small publishing house in Poland is available:

    https://sklep.antyk.org.pl/p,the-jewish-civilization,6451.html

    https://www.amazon.com/Jewish-Civilization-Polish-Feliks-Koneczny/product-reviews/095070511X/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_show_all_btm?ie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews

    Koneczny is more known for his 1935 “On the Plurality of Civilsations.” Here reviewed by Carroll Quigley

    https://www.jstor.org/stable/2504158?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    and here the whole book in English with a preface by Arnold Toynbee

    An this is from fairly recent critical article about Koneczny’s Jewish CIvilazation and his raising popularity among nationalists in Poland:

    https://ejournals.bc.edu/ojs/index.php/scjr/article/viewFile/1552/1406

    Koneczny was quite explicit in his judgment of ―Jewish civilization. In his learned opinion, since its origins it had been an incomplete civilization, defective, not possessing all the categories of being, without Truth and Beauty. Indeed, he detected only the tiniest provision of the intellectual categories of being. As an example of these shortcomings, Koneczny noted that for Jews historical thought itself is very, very difficult. From my own experience, I know that for Jewish students it is difficult to acquire this sense, difficult to understand the historical nature of people and things…He consistently maintained in his works that the civilizational question is more a matter of mentality than one of race. Thus, the key concern with Jewish civilization was the threat that the Jewish way of thinking posed to Latin civilization.

    For Koneczny, Jewish civilization was frozen in time. Already in his Plurality of Civilisations (1935), Koneczny was maintaining that the whole of community life the whole structure of Jewish civilization with a mass of detail is contained in the rules of the Old Testament. It is a sacral civilization. Jewish civilization added in time a second source-book of Jewish religion and civilisation—the Talmud… It may safely be said that there is nothing in heaven or earth which is not debated there, but always exclusively from the sacral angle… Not a corner of life escapes the restraint of rules allegedly coming from Jehovah. Jewish civilisation would become even more strongly sacral.

    The fundamental flaw in Jewish civilization is that it is sacral, which leads Jews to embrace a priori thinking and a suspiciousness towards secular learning. As early as 1926, Koneczny was writing in Ateneum Kapłańskie (the most important organ for the Polish clergy during the interwar period) that ―of all religions the Jewish one is most identical with a civilization. The Talmud is this civilization, because it contains the method of collective life in all its details, not neglecting a single category, but with several huge defects (such as the lack of scholarship)… In Jewry religion and civilization are the same. He added that while religion ―is the most important part of a civilization…only religions of a lower order create civilizations and these are also of a lower type. Koneczny later concluded that in ―sacral civilisations religion acts as a brake on progress. A religion which defines everything in categories of being must at the same time petrify everything, and in consequence its adherents are often helpless in face of new currents emerging in the process of time. Where everything is established a priori, where there is no doubt and no inquiry, progress is excluded and instead there is danger of stagnation. For Jewish civiliza- tion, this meant that there was no ―creative originality.

    Koneczny placed special emphases on Jewish legalism, which is evident in Mosaic law. He believed that the contractual agreement between them and their god meant that Jews placed law before ethics. Koneczny found that over the course of centuries there emerged here and there apriori law. It imparted sanction not to existing circumstances and was not created in a natural manner, but it was imagined, invented…Mosaic law was a prototype of apriori law. Koneczny believed that this focus on apriori law is a fundamental feature of Judaism, and consequently Jewish civilization. He stressed that ―[a]mong Jews…law is not based on ethics, but precisely the opposite: ethics are based on law. He theorized that this sacralized law became the regulator for all aspects of Jewish life, leaving no room for the development of ethics. An elephantiasis of law thus emerged: the more law the better!

    Another important factor for Koneczny was the notion of Jewish chosenness. He concluded that this special relationship with God and the faith that all must end with the Jews ruling the world was the most immutable, distinguishing characteristic of Jewish civilization. Koneczny thus identified an ethic of exclusivity that generated contempt, then hatred, for foreigners. In all of universal history, Jews have developed hatred to the highest degree… This all highlights the defective nature of Jewish civilization. This collective predestination reflects Jewish emphasis on the collective, rather than the individual, and precludes a personal relationship with God that is found in Catholicism.

    Koneczny posited that even while Jewish civilization embraced the ethic of exclusivity Jews have been forced to live among other peoples, to live within other civilizations. According to Koneczny, Jewish civilization experienced significant changes among other nations,‘ but what is most interesting is that the changes occurred for the better: the supplement of a defective civilization in many directions and lifting it to a higher level in each case. For example, Jews embraced other languages in order to express a higher order of abstract thought, since Hebrew was itself a language able to facilitate civilizational development only to a certain level, beyond which it becomes a brake on higher development.

    Feliks Koneczny (1940s during the WWII): Judaized Hitlerism (excerpts)
    Polis version: https://wolna-polska.pl/wiadomosci/feliks-koneczny-hitleryzm-zazydzony-2018-02

    In Germany, Jews are being attacked, but their ideology is being adopted. The foundations of Nazism are drawn from Jewish civilization. The first (as far as I know) realized in this K.L. Koniński, writing in 1933 about the chosen nation and the chosen race: “How similar to the Jews who are hated are these anti-Semites!.” The civilization activity of both Russian and German societies combines in the fight against Christianity. From the sickle and the hammer, the more obvious sign of anti-Christian tendencies is the broken cross (this is the hackenkreuz). In Russia,all religion are fundamentally destroyed, they do not want any and none, while the Germans decided to create their own religion. Hitler did not think of this at first; it is Josephism mutatis mutandis. Joseph II bred his Catholicism in his own way, because he believed that religion could be very useful to the state; he wanted to make the Church a first-class politician for his use. Also Hitler. The dreams of your own religion have been dating back to Germany since the days of Fichte, and for a hundred years they have been thinking about creating their entire civilization. Attempts to date have been miscarried, because civilization can not be “done”; by no means it will be created artificially, a priori.

    Jews brought monolatry to Europe and we know it from them, and in general we consider it something specifically Jewish. It is not so; monolatry is a phenomenon repeated in universal history here and there in various parts of the world, it can therefore be diverse and Germany could (in principle) think of a new, specifically German monolatry. They did not make this so. The Hitlerian monolatry is a faithful copy of the Jewish one, for it accepts the Jewish concept of the relation of its god to people without reservation. Just like Jehovah, the deutsche Gott is the enemy of all mankind, with the exception of Jews or Germans, Jews are the chosen people, and the German word Herrenvolk means the same; For Jewish choice has the message to rule over the whole world, and Germany strives to the same, under the authority of the deutschen Gottes and under his protection. The goal will undoubtedly be achieved, because the German God is invincible. When the incomparable (for Germans) coincident failed the first universal war, the second one provoked; if it should fail, it will evoke the third, etc. Until the effect. Similarly, Jews believe that world domination can not pass them.

    Their contempt of strangers they had learned from the Jews, as if they were reciting a lesson from the Talmud; they also equated themselves with Jews in maximum hatred. Jews are similar in that pride without measure is the most striking feature of both. In truth, a Jew is a complete man, only a Jew for a Jew, only a German for a German. A simple consequence of being chosen!

    The Germans completed the biblical verse as fully as possible with the promise of Jehovah, who will give Israel “a great and good city that you have not built; at the same time, the houses full of the good of all you did not clean up and the wells dug that you did not dig; vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant – and you will eat and eat “. The situation is exactly the same with the Germans. To desire of someone else’s property has become an essential feature of their character and the axis of their history. They work to have what they want to lead a war of invaders and a robbery invasion, then to live at the expense of others, fruges consumere nati.

    The civilization that is currently being carried by the Germans is to be based on slavery. Jews also dream about it, that when the Messiah comes, he will turn the “nations” into the slaves of Israel. The Germans made this dream a reality, they turned it into reality. They are more radical than Jews. It is hard to think that this system of the “new Europe” is progress.

    Having written down the manifestations of the latest German culture, we see that it is to be strictly utilitarian. Generally, this trait is also characteristic of Jews, but for Germans to a higher degree. Jews cease to be utilitarians when it comes to the worship of Jehovah and the study of the holy books. The Jew is now ready to make great sacrifices. There is nothing sacred in Nazism. They went through Jewish and Chinese in utilitarianism.

    In matters of property of the “nations”, the German position is quite compatible with the Talmud. Quite Jewishly, Germans also consider all property conquered as a “desert”, or a “free lake”, on which the Germans are allowed to do what he likes. Whether for a Jew or for a German, the property of “strangers” is nevertheless res nullius and primi occupantis of a Jew or a German.

    They strictly and thoroughly took over from the Jews the command of a double ethic, different for their fellow believers, and for different gentiles, which consisted of exemption from all ethics. This comes from the explicit command of Jehovah and the German god. The whole Europe knows from experience, not only is German allowed to commit all this evil, so that German has no conscience only but also no honor in relation to strangers, but unfriendly and dishonorable conduct is directly recommended to them. If German does not commit wickedness towards a stranger, apparently he is not a Nazi in spirit; like a Jew, without thinking of anything bad for a goy, he becomes a Jew who has been de-Judaized.

    There’s a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived. The oscillating hot/cold and reasonable/unreasonable tone is the type of manipulation that I am sensitive to seeing, and reacting against.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you’ve already jumped into fantasy land.

    For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. The Talmud is not. It is instead a millenia old vast Jewish Wikipedia in which the most controversial stuff would be found in the commentson edits, the comments on comments on edits and so on and so on and so on.

    Were an alien to browse the internet message boards as you may have browsed the Talmud, they would make all sorts of unreal conclusions.

    I suspect that indeed the huge swelling in third world anti-Western resentment pre-9/11 may actually have been a result of middle class people in the third world getting connected and assuming Western peoples were entirely depraved and without any moral value. As time has passed, they have gained a context for this and their anti-Western feelings are incomparably lower, despite all of the wars.

    Tyron 2, perhaps you are confused about being a Jew. You sound more like a Karaite. This is what you get in Rabbinical Judaism concerning Talmud:

    https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/08/11/why-the-talmud-is-the-most-important-text-in-judaism/
    It is always assumed that the most important text of Judaism is the Torah. But while it is true that the Torah is uniquely revered as the essence of our faith identity — and elevated above all other texts as the unadulterated word of God — the primary text of Judaism is undoubtedly the Talmud.

    The Talmud is a remarkable compilation of ancient traditions that accompanied the Sinaitic Torah, collectively known as Torah-she’baal-peh, or the “Oral Torah.”

    http://jewishroots.net/library/anti_missionary_objections/does_the_talmud_take_precedence.html
    Raba made the following exposition: What is the purport of the Scriptural text: And, furthermore my son, be admonished: Of making many books etc.? My son, be more careful in [the observance of] the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah, for in the laws of the Torah there are positive and negative precepts; but, as to the laws of the Scribes, whoever transgresses any of the enactments of the Scribes incurs the penalty of death. In case you should object: If they are of real value why were they not recorded [in the Torah]? Scripture stated: ‘Of making many books there is no end’

    http://www.aish.com/atr/Torah_versus_Talmud.html
    So what is the Oral Torah? Its name derives from the fact that it was not allowed to be formally written down but had to be taught orally. It contains the explanations of the Written Torah. One cannot be understood without the other.

    https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/why-do-jews-study-talmud/
    his is one of the reasons that Talmud study for many people in the modern world is not a practical activity at all, but rather an important religious experience. Even in the past, for that matter, the main reason for the Talmud’s preeminence, the chief cause of its central role in Jewish history, was not practical at all. The Talmud was Torah . In a paradox that determined the history of Judaism, the Talmud was Oral Torah in written form, and as such it became the clearest statement the Jew could hear of God’s very word.
     
    Is Judaism possible w/o Talmud? Karaites did not accept Midrash or Talmud.

    Karaite Judaism holds every interpretation of the Tanakh to the same scrutiny regardless of its source, and teaches that it is the personal responsibility of every individual Jew to study the Torah, and ultimately decide personally its correct meaning. Karaites may consider arguments made in the Talmud and other works without exalting them above other viewpoints.
     

    Karaites believe they observe the original religion of Ancient Israel, as prescribed by God in the Tanakh and understood by the Israelites before the Pharisaic period. They do not accept later additions, such as the Talmud of Rabbinic Judaism, as divinely inspired. They place the ultimate responsibility of interpreting the Tanakh on each individual. Karaism holds every interpretation up to the same objective scrutiny regardless of its source.

    Karaites believe in one, eternal, omnipresent, incorporeal, and almighty God, Creator of the Universe, who gave the Tanakh to the Israelites through Moses and the Prophets. Karaites trust in Divine providence, and the majority hope for the coming of the Messiah.
     
    Karaites seem to be strict and do not circumvent rules by using Shabbos goys, so no light on Shabbat means no light.

    Nazis exempted Karaites form their anti-Jewish laws. Some Karaites were accused of collaboration with Nazis but at the same time some were helping to hide Jews from Nazis.
    , @Jus' Sayin'...
    I knew two students of Jacob Neussner (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Neusner#Political_views) who planned on being Conservative Jewish rabbis. Over beers one night they told me a story - whether from Talmud, Midrash, Targum, or another source I cannot say. Several rabbis were arguing over a point of Torah. One finally said that if God himself came down and disputed his interpretation he would still hold by it. After a shocked silence, God spoke and commended the rabbi for his understanding of the law. My friends cited this as evidence that proper Jewish doctrine was that for Jews Talmudic interpretation was the final arbiter of correct behavior.

  34. This is a truly remarkable article. Hopefully this leads to some much needed introspection, which would be in the interest of both Jews and Gentiles.

    Critics today of all backgrounds bemoan the total impoverishment of so much of America’s once comfortably affluent middle class, noting that some sixty percent of the American population today possesses less than $500 in readily available savings.

    This 2018 FED survey found that 41% of American adults can’t cover a $400 emergency expense.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/22/fed-survey-40-percent-of-adults-cant-cover-400-emergency-expense.html

    That number is actually a decrease from 50% in 2013.

    But it does sometimes seem like a substantial fraction of our population has been reduced to a 21st century version of the drunken, ignorant, exploited, indebted, impoverished, and immiserated Slavic peasantry of the Jewish-dominated Pale of Settlement

    Yes, it does. I definitely think the misrule of our elites, both Jewish and Gentile, is certainly a factor. However, it seems like the quality of the citizenry has declined significantly (even after adjusting for demographic change). Modern-day Americans seem to have little desire to acquire knowledge, read, discuss issues, or study history. They’re frivolous people whose lives revolve around sports, celebrity gossip, tv, wild pleasure-seeking, and other forms of entertainment. They talk and think like children, which has all sorts of unfortunate consequences for them and their country. They are poor quality citizens.

    This isn’t anything new. Prosperous civilizations tend to decline with time, as comfortable living weakens their fortitude, debauches their mores, and undermines their once strong social bonds. The end result is a citizenry that’s physically&mentally fragile, ruinously hedonistic, and highly socially atomized.

    In its late stage, the citizenry of the Roman Empire had become totally distracted by chariot races and gladiator fights. Meanwhile, irresponsible leaders, some of whom were literally insane, misruled and looted the empire. Eventually, the hollowed out empire was destroyed by the Germanic barbarian hordes. This pattern has been repeated numerous times by many different civilizations.

    See the video below.

    Our elites can get away with so much because they rule over a population of gluttons, clowns, fools, and hedonists. Such a population can be easily distracted and, when needed, intimidated. Elites tend to behave much better when they have a sober-minded, responsible citizenry to keep them in line. Elites run wild when the population is too distracted, enfeebled, atomized, debauched, and ignorant to do anything.

    If Colonial-era America had been populated by the inhabitants of “Sodom and Gomorrah,” the British would’ve never left.

    “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

    “The first generation makes it, the second generation spends it, the third generation drinks it.”

    Today’s Anglo-Saxons are nothing like their ancestors.

    a striking graph produced by the Economic Policy Institute demonstrates that a very sharp economic inflection point occurred in the early 1970s, right around the time that the aforementioned ethnic transformation of our ruling elites was fully under way.

    Around the late 70s and early 80s (when wages and productivity truly diverge), “Reagnomics” (tax cuts, deregulation, financialization, union breaking, offshoring, commoditization of labor) was implemented in the U.S. It was so successful for our oligarchs that other Anglo&Euro nations followed our example. Decades of these policies have enriched bankers and executives, while impoverishing workers.

    You say tax cuts, deregulation, and union breaking like that's a bad thing.

    Off-shoring is one of the mysterious catastrophes of our nation. Nothing was done to keep industry at home and instead of choosing democratic, English-speaking India as the country to benefit, "we" chose a communist dictatorship with a language that will break your back. Only conscious malevolence could have chosen China. Malevolence? Pro-communism? Makes you think.

  35. “When a ruling elite has limited connection to the population it controls, benevolent behavior is far less likely to occur”

    I have no opinion on the thesis itself (although the way it’s phrased, it doesn’t sound convincing), but are you implying that Leon Trotsky (for example), coming form an assimilated novorussian peasant family, had more ‘limited connection’ to the population than Nicholas II, or, say, Pyotr Stolypin?

    And if you do believe that this ‘connection’ is a function of religion of one’s ancestors rather than one’s real life experiences, then perhaps you’d care to explain why?

    Wow, Ron Unz really busts it wide open with his latest American Pravda installment.

    While he shines a spotlight on many new revelations, I wanted to draw attention to the following two which relate to most of the exchanges I have with my interlocutors on this site.

    The first is directed at the PEAbrain and his peeps:

    Whereas pious Muslims consider Jesus the holy prophet of God and Muhammed’s immediate predecessor, according to the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is perhaps the vilest being who ever lived, condemned to spend eternity in the bottommost pit of Hell…

    Over the years prominent Israeli rabbis have sometimes publicly debated whether Jewish power has now become sufficiently great that all the Christian churches of Jerusalem, Bethleham, and other nearby areas can finally be destroyed, and the entire Holy Land completely cleansed of all traces of its Christian contamination. Some have taken this position, but most have urged prudence, arguing that Jews needed to gain some additional strength before they should take such a risky step. These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.

    Ignorance, indeed!

    The second is directed at The Maven. While he constantly stresses the importance of the threat of antisemitism, I normally respond that the opposite is the real threat. And this quote by Israel Shahak backs that up:

    When racism, discrimination and xenophobia is prevalent among Jews, and directed against non-Jews, being fueled by religious motivations, it is like its opposite case, that of antisemitism and its religious motivations. Today, however, while the second is being discussed, the very existence of the first is generally ignored, more outside Israel than within it. – IS

    On a human level, I can’t imagine too many mothers in any culture encouraging their children to spit. A big part of motherhood is discouraging children from doing disgusting things with their bodies. Why undermine all that hard work with church spitting?

    2. A useful perspective on the book is provided by a review by Baruch Kimmerling: https://www.jstor.org/stable/2538163?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents. This link provides a preview but gives enough to give the flavor of the review. Kimmerling’s basic claim is that Shahak exaggerates the degree of anti-Gentile animus in Judaism and that the dominant reaction is one of anxiety and fear, rather than hatred.

    3. Furthermore, according to Kimmerling, various “loopholes” existed within Judaism that allowed kind treatment of Gentiles. Usually, these loopholes were framed in terms of avoiding hurt feelings and endangering Jews, but in fact, these provisions gave Jews a wider leeway in befriending and helping Gentiles.

    4. Most Jewish doctors, even the Orthodox, would not adhere to provisions about discriminatory treatment of non-Jewish patients.

    5. I do not deny that the fanaticism Shahak describes does in fact exist. However, Judaism embraces many different interpretations, many of which are quite different than the ones he discusses in his book. Consider, for example, the Israeli group “Rabbis for Human Rights,” which adamantly opposes the views Shahak objects to. Many of these rabbis are Orthodox.

    6. I once worked as a long-term substitute at two schools run by Chabad Lubavitch. Everyone knew I wasn’t Jewish and I was well and fairly treated.

    7. One should always distinguish between a religious system and the people in it. While I do think ultraorthodoxy–but not modern orthodoxy–is a flawed religious system, many of the people in that system are quite decent individuals.

    8. I despise the way ultra-Orthodox Jewish females are treated.

    This seems naive. I.e., it seems divorced from actual experience with Jews, who will, almost to a man, deny, obfuscate, distract, dissimulate, ignore and dismiss accusations about the behavior in question...everything but respond in a way that they demand from whites in reciprocal situations (evangelize on the subject and fight for change, etc.). On the contrary, they are entirely more likely to accuse the critic of "ANTISEMITISM!!!" and work to have the entire subject deemed "ANTISEMITIC!!!"

    Shahak could have lived for a thousand years, totally devoted them to this topic, and never been anything but a drop in the bucket compared to the exaggerations of Jews about the "ANTISEMITISM!!!" (and other "pathologies") of the peoples they have chosen to follow wherever they are found.

    My response to your points 3-9 is similar: let the Jews be treated as they have treated us.

  38. If Jews apparently pray to Satan almost as readily as they pray to God, then it appears the Jew Testament has influenced Christians to imitate them, since Jesus is identified as Lucifer, if the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible from which the word Lucifer originates, is correct.

    • Isaiah 14:12: “How you have fallen from heaven, morning star/Lucifer, son of the dawn!”
    • Revelation 22:16: “I Jesus….Root and the Offspring of David…the bright and morning star/Lucifer.”

    That gives new meaning to the term “Star of David” and its hexagram symbol ✡.

    To be sure, Lucifer is Latin meaning “bearer of light,” to which Jesus identifies himself: “I am the light/Lucifer/Illuminati of the world.” (John 8:12)

  41. ” For the last two thousand years, Jews have almost invariably existed as small, relatively weak minorities living in the lands of others, ”

    The last two thousand years began in CE 18.
    Twice thereafter Rome sent powerful armies to Palestine to fight the jews.
    After beating jews militarily the ideological destruction began: christianity.
    If Jezus ever existed or not, Roman citizen Paul created christianity, aimed at jews.
    How Paul became a Roman citizen I do not (yet) know, on the total population of the Roman empire of more than four million there were no more than a few hundred thousand Roman citizens.
    They had special rights, to be fed in Rome for free, and direct appeal to the emperor in case they were persecuted.
    Palestine was a Roman province, but Pontius Pilatus could not sentence Paul, on the contrary, he got an escort of 1300 soldiers on his way from Jerusalem to the coast where he took a ship that would bring him to Rome.
    If Paul was a secret agent of the emperor, w’ll never know, after going aboard the old sources do not mention Paul again.

    Then about judaism, when some correspondent told he about his book The Weight, I would not believe it.
    How many jews still think that only jews are humans, and that non jews are just animals disguised as humans, bcause it would not be proper for jews to be served by animals, I do not know.
    But when one googles ‘gentiles in halacha’ one finds an article by three rabbis confirming that judaic theology indeed only sees jews as humans.

    Then there is the rule and conscience question.
    Jew live good when they follow the Talmudic rules, there are two Talmuds, they’re not identical, one has, from memory 20.000 rules, the other 22.000, something like that.
    Rabbi Graetz, in his nine volume or so history of the jews of 1880 or so, states that conscience has no role in judaism.
    What he does not write is how dodging rules seems to be THE jewish sport.

    Houston Stewart Chamberlain, ‘Die Grundlagen des Neunzehnten Jahrhunderts’, 1898- 1907, München; many quotes from Graetz
    Lewis Mumford, ‘The city in history, Its origins, its transformations and its prospects’, London, 1991, 1961;the author is of the opinion that the jewish rules had two objects: separation from other peoples, and maximum population growth.
    Michael Grant, ‘The Jews in the Roman World’, 1973, New York; how jews were a considerable power in the Roman world
    Yigael Yadin, ‘Massada, Hero’s fortress and the zealots’ last stand’, London 1996; the enormous Roman effort to destroy the last jewish resistance
    Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, ‘Verschlusssache Jesus, Die Wahrheit über das frühe Christentum’, (The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception, 1991), 2005, Bergisch Gladbach; the theory about Paul being a secret agent of the emperor, but also a description of the scrolls. One of them of copper sheeting, describing all the places where the temple treasures had been hidden; Grant explains how the temple got rich, so I’m inclined to believe that the descriptions were real.
    Flavius Josephus, ‘Geschichte des Jüdischen Krieges’, Wiesbaden, 1978; descriptions of the Roman jewish wars, and the oldest suicide resistance.
    Since a long time try to remember what book mentions that jews were implicated in the murder of Ceasar, he was taking away their prerogatives.
    Michel Rostovtzeff, ‘Geschichte der Alten Welt, zweiter Band, Rom’, Bremen 1961 (The History of the Ancient World) explains what Ceasar did, tried to do, was to unify the Roman empire, anyone the same rights. It fits into this theory that Ceasar also wanted to abolish special rights for jews.

    Paul is an imaginary figure, like a TV spokesman for a company. The Letters were real (and span 200 years), but Paul was not. He started out as a revolutionary, and went through four different re-writings before he was given "Roman Citizenship" and sent off to Rome. The religious ideologues, like advertisers are always creating imaginary people to get their message across. Moses was also imaginary.

    Thanks to Ron for summarizing this obscure material, and his bravery and honesty in writing about it.

    What have we learned here? That European Jews, in the Christian period between antiquity and modernity, often dwelled in superstitious and tightly controlled communities, hostile to outsiders. That on several occasions, perhaps even repeatedly, they became exploitative agents of a local ruling class, alienated from the common people. That despite the secularism and reformism that dominates the modern Jewish community, the superstitious tribalism survives as an element in the political life of the nation-state of Israel, and the rapacious economic practices as an element in the business life of modern America. That's my instant synopsis.

    And here are the indispensable truths to carry forward:

    Jews as a group will remain the same until such time as converted completely, truly, to Christ.

    Because being anti-Christ is central to Jewish identity, and because only European peoples built a Christian civilization, Jewish culture will always be viciously anti-white Gentile, because Christ-hating Jews feel they are justified in Christ-hating if they can defeat, subdue, ruin the peoples of historic Christendom.

    Protestantism even under the ‘anti-Semite Luther’ is a series of heresies that requires Judaizing.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a thoroughly Judaizing heresy that formed the final, and most important (because theological and therefore both spiritual and moral) basis of WASP culture.

    The British Empire spread the fruits of WASP Judaizing across the globe. The Yank Empire has continued the spread, and entrenchment, of stridently pro-Jewish culture across the globe.

You’d think after reading this you’d come away feeling that this stuff is demonic and has been shown to be so destructive and thus that which they despise most and work so strenuously against, namely Christianity, would be good. But most of the people detailing this stuff (e.g., Kevin MacDonald) are atheist.
    , @Echoes of History
    If you say that only European peoples built a Christian civilization, then is the Jew Testament wrong? Was the Apostle Philip mistaken to recruit Africans into the church? Was the Holy Spirit in error for providing teleporting services afterward? (Acts 8:26-40) Did the first Christians at Antioch commit an error including Simeon the Nigger (Black man) in the church and elevating him to a position of leadership of "prophets and teachers?"

    If, as you say, Jewish culture will always be viciously anti-white Gentile, then why do you worship a viciously anti-white Gentile who railed against Gentile White Patriarchy (Matthew 20:25, Mark 10:42, Luke 22:25) and demanded one "hate" and "forsake" their own blood and soil?(Luke 14:26, Matthew 19:27-30)

    Is not the Jew Testament itself thoroughly Judaizing?

    "WE WORSHIP what we do know, for salvation is from THE JEWS." John 4:22
    Acts 3:25 “He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’”
    Romans 1:16 “The Jew first.”
    Romans 9:4 “The people of Israel, chosen.”

    As a separate note, I'd add the works of a professor Klier to the reading list. He's a Cambridge academic who's produced some careful research on Jews in nineteenth century Russia and the actual nature and course of the various pogroms on which so much Jewish victimology rests. Certainly the evil anti-semitic Tsars and their officials emerge as much more ambiguous figures than the usual narrative would have us believe.

    Ron, as a Jew raised in the Reform tradition, I can't speak to the claims about Talmudic Judaism. But your claims that "our media pundits regularly identify Putin as 'the new Hitler'" seems largely untrue. A quick Google search on "the new Hitler" turns up only 70,000 results, links that refer mostly to Saddam Hussain, various Iranian leaders, and Trump. A search for "the new Hitler" and "Putin" turns up only 17,000 results and from what I can tell many of the linked stories criticize the formulation. Can you point to even two or three significant pundits who have called Putin "the new Hitler"?

    I'm also no expert on the subject of Hitler's economic policies, but I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing "the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies" is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It's true as far as it goes, but it doesn't go very far.

    As to all the claims about pre-modern Judaism, I can't say, but many of the practices and superstitions you cite don't seem very different from contemporaneous Christianity. And your dark musings on the lasting impact of the alleged centuries of inculcated "seething hatred" for Christians doesn't jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that's conspicuous in its absence.

    ” I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder ”

    Mainly nonsense.
    Schacht primed indeed the German economy using Keynesian economics, but by creating special money just to be used by enterprises among themelves.

    What an interesting article! As a non-Jew, who did not have an education in Judaism, I have a slightly different take on Judaism than on Israel Shahak.

    1. In my judgment, Shahak failed to distinguish between rabbinical rulings and local folk traditions. In his book, he includes a reference to Jews spitting in front of Christian churches and cemeteries. While this did sometimes happen, Baruch Kimmerling claimed--in correspondence with me--that this practice was a folk tradition and not an official religious practice. In any community with millions of members, some people will do disgusting things. However, that does not mean that most of its members approve of--or even know about--these practices.

    On a human level, I can't imagine too many mothers in any culture encouraging their children to spit. A big part of motherhood is discouraging children from doing disgusting things with their bodies. Why undermine all that hard work with church spitting?

    2. A useful perspective on the book is provided by a review by Baruch Kimmerling: https://www.jstor.org/stable/2538163?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents. This link provides a preview but gives enough to give the flavor of the review. Kimmerling's basic claim is that Shahak exaggerates the degree of anti-Gentile animus in Judaism and that the dominant reaction is one of anxiety and fear, rather than hatred.

    3. Furthermore, according to Kimmerling, various "loopholes" existed within Judaism that allowed kind treatment of Gentiles. Usually, these loopholes were framed in terms of avoiding hurt feelings and endangering Jews, but in fact, these provisions gave Jews a wider leeway in befriending and helping Gentiles.

    4. Most Jewish doctors, even the Orthodox, would not adhere to provisions about discriminatory treatment of non-Jewish patients.

    5. I do not deny that the fanaticism Shahak describes does in fact exist. However, Judaism embraces many different interpretations, many of which are quite different than the ones he discusses in his book. Consider, for example, the Israeli group "Rabbis for Human Rights," which adamantly opposes the views Shahak objects to. Many of these rabbis are Orthodox.

    6. I once worked as a long-term substitute at two schools run by Chabad Lubavitch. Everyone knew I wasn't Jewish and I was well and fairly treated.

    7. One should always distinguish between a religious system and the people in it. While I do think ultraorthodoxy--but not modern orthodoxy--is a flawed religious system, many of the people in that system are quite decent individuals.

    8. I despise the way ultra-Orthodox Jewish females are treated.

    9. In spite of my disagreements with Shahak's views on Judaism, I believe he was a great man who did heroic work to protect the human rights of Palestinians.

    I can’t imagine too many mothers in any culture encouraging their children to spit. A big part of motherhood is discouraging children from doing disgusting things with their bodies. Why undermine all that hard work with church spitting?

    Ron, I don't know if you've drunk your own koolaid or if this is some sort of bizarre grand experiment in creating a deranged and lunatic cult.

    There's a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived. The oscillating hot/cold and reasonable/unreasonable tone is the type of manipulation that I am sensitive to seeing, and reacting against.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you've already jumped into fantasy land.

    For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. The Talmud is not. It is instead a millenia old vast Jewish Wikipedia in which the most controversial stuff would be found in the commentson edits, the comments on comments on edits and so on and so on and so on.

    Were an alien to browse the internet message boards as you may have browsed the Talmud, they would make all sorts of unreal conclusions.

    I suspect that indeed the huge swelling in third world anti-Western resentment pre-9/11 may actually have been a result of middle class people in the third world getting connected and assuming Western peoples were entirely depraved and without any moral value. As time has passed, they have gained a context for this and their anti-Western feelings are incomparably lower, despite all of the wars.

    ” For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. ”

    The Torah cannot be read out, what is read out is one of many interpretations.
    Christine Kauffmann, and an atheistic colleage rabbi explain in lectures why, alas in French.
    The lectures are on internet.

    Ron is somewhat correct that Orthodox Judaism is detached from the Torah.

    Some of his paths of thought may lead to something intetesting, others are dead ends designed to funnel through typical discontents and the like.

    I think someone else mentioned, there is no monolithic Judaism and this means virtually any kook psychopath can claim jewishness. This poses two problems, accusing "Jews" categorically and likewise poses a similar onus on anyone claiming yo act in the name of Jews or Judaism. This of course suggests an issue with the modern nation of Israel. In fact the centralized Rabbinate is easily one of the primary political issues among citizens, second only to the issues surrounding terror and Palestinians.

    Other features to the article such as Nazi Zionist collaborations are well documented.

    What I think Ron lacks here is... how do you explain ethics? Rational Utilitarianism? Christian? Of course he lives this blank and allows those differences to work out in the comments section.

    These problems are age old and the solution lies in understanding how these social features work and to dismantle them.

    Ron, thanks for this very lively and provocative piece.

    I have pretty close to zero expertise in Judaism, but it’s pretty common Western knowledge that Christianity has been a turbulent religion, sometimes violent, sometimes passive, sometimes corrupt, and that history has been written about and opinions drawn from it. Seems to me no reason why Judaism ought to be exempt from reasonable public examination. (I’m a cradle Lutheran, lapsed for decades, and sort of describe myself as a “reviving Christian” these days. Non-dogmatic, non-observant type.)

    There were also some remarkable ironies, and not long afterward I joked to a (Jewish) friend of mine that I’d suddenly discovered that Naziism could best be described as “Judaism for Wimps” or perhaps Judaism as practiced by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
     
    The first time I have encountered the idea that Nazism emulated Judaism was in Umberto Eco's essay in a niche art journal. Recently I tried to locate it bu I failed. That I do not reminder the name of the journal does not help.

    It is interesting that a Polish historian wrote about Nazism as an emulation of Judaism already before the WWII and then in underground publications during the WWII in Poland. He worked on his Jewish Civilization before the WWII which finished right after the war. It has been published since in Polish but for obvious reasons not widely know. Supposedly an English translation from a small publishing house in Poland is available:

    https://sklep.antyk.org.pl/p,the-jewish-civilization,6451.html
    https://www.amazon.com/Jewish-Civilization-Polish-Feliks-Koneczny/product-reviews/095070511X/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_show_all_btm?ie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews
     
    Koneczny is more known for his 1935 "On the Plurality of Civilsations." Here reviewed by Carroll Quigley

    https://www.jstor.org/stable/2504158?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    and here the whole book in English with a preface by Arnold Toynbee

    https://www.scribd.com/doc/4464979/ON-THE-PLURALITY-OF-CIVILIZATIONS-Feliks-Koneczny-Entire-Book

    An this is from fairly recent critical article about Koneczny's Jewish CIvilazation and his raising popularity among nationalists in Poland:


    https://ejournals.bc.edu/ojs/index.php/scjr/article/viewFile/1552/1406
    Koneczny was quite explicit in his judgment of ―Jewish civilization. In his learned opinion, since its origins it had been an incomplete civilization, defective, not possessing all the categories of being, without Truth and Beauty. Indeed, he detected only the tiniest provision of the intellectual categories of being. As an example of these shortcomings, Koneczny noted that for Jews historical thought itself is very, very difficult. From my own experience, I know that for Jewish students it is difficult to acquire this sense, difficult to understand the historical nature of people and things...He consistently maintained in his works that the civilizational question is more a matter of mentality than one of race. Thus, the key concern with Jewish civilization was the threat that the Jewish way of thinking posed to Latin civilization.

    For Koneczny, Jewish civilization was frozen in time. Already in his Plurality of Civilisations (1935), Koneczny was maintaining that the whole of community life the whole structure of Jewish civilization with a mass of detail is contained in the rules of the Old Testament. It is a sacral civilization. Jewish civilization added in time a second source-book of Jewish religion and civilisation—the Talmud... It may safely be said that there is nothing in heaven or earth which is not debated there, but always exclusively from the sacral angle... Not a corner of life escapes the restraint of rules allegedly coming from Jehovah. Jewish civilisation would become even more strongly sacral.

    The fundamental flaw in Jewish civilization is that it is sacral, which leads Jews to embrace a priori thinking and a suspiciousness towards secular learning. As early as 1926, Koneczny was writing in Ateneum Kapłańskie (the most important organ for the Polish clergy during the interwar period) that ―of all religions the Jewish one is most identical with a civilization. The Talmud is this civilization, because it contains the method of collective life in all its details, not neglecting a single category, but with several huge defects (such as the lack of scholarship)... In Jewry religion and civilization are the same. He added that while religion ―is the most important part of a civilization...only religions of a lower order create civilizations and these are also of a lower type. Koneczny later concluded that in ―sacral civilisations religion acts as a brake on progress. A religion which defines everything in categories of being must at the same time petrify everything, and in consequence its adherents are often helpless in face of new currents emerging in the process of time. Where everything is established a priori, where there is no doubt and no inquiry, progress is excluded and instead there is danger of stagnation. For Jewish civiliza- tion, this meant that there was no ―creative originality.

    Koneczny placed special emphases on Jewish legalism, which is evident in Mosaic law. He believed that the contractual agreement between them and their god meant that Jews placed law before ethics. Koneczny found that over the course of centuries there emerged here and there apriori law. It imparted sanction not to existing circumstances and was not created in a natural manner, but it was imagined, invented...Mosaic law was a prototype of apriori law. Koneczny believed that this focus on apriori law is a fundamental feature of Judaism, and consequently Jewish civilization. He stressed that ―[a]mong Jews...law is not based on ethics, but precisely the opposite: ethics are based on law. He theorized that this sacralized law became the regulator for all aspects of Jewish life, leaving no room for the development of ethics. An elephantiasis of law thus emerged: the more law the better!

    Another important factor for Koneczny was the notion of Jewish chosenness. He concluded that this special relationship with God and the faith that all must end with the Jews ruling the world was the most immutable, distinguishing characteristic of Jewish civilization. Koneczny thus identified an ethic of exclusivity that generated contempt, then hatred, for foreigners. In all of universal history, Jews have developed hatred to the highest degree... This all highlights the defective nature of Jewish civilization. This collective predestination reflects Jewish emphasis on the collective, rather than the individual, and precludes a personal relationship with God that is found in Catholicism.

    Koneczny posited that even while Jewish civilization embraced the ethic of exclusivity Jews have been forced to live among other peoples, to live within other civilizations. According to Koneczny, Jewish civilization experienced significant changes among other nations,‘ but what is most interesting is that the changes occurred for the better: the supplement of a defective civilization in many directions and lifting it to a higher level in each case. For example, Jews embraced other languages in order to express a higher order of abstract thought, since Hebrew was itself a language able to facilitate civilizational development only to a certain level, beyond which it becomes a brake on higher development.

    No. Hitler's vision was of Germans making serfs of Slavs. Hitler's great hero was the queer Frederick the Great, who alternated between Enlightenment ideas that sound gooey and tender, on the one hand, and desire, on the other, to revive the most amorally brutal forms of pagan German warring as life itself.

    The Hitler problem is the Germanic problem, Continental form. WASP is the other form of the Germanic problem, each wing of which sees almost all other Europeans as inferior and fit to be ground into dust.

    Hitler and Judaizing archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell are not opposites. They are the two sides of the one coin.

    On Saturday I tried to tell a friend about who was Ron Unz and about his Weltanschauung evolution. Then on Sunday for reason now I do not remember I began to think of Bobby Fischer and his evolution that eventually lead to the asylum he got in Iceland. And I began to fear for Ron Unz's future and safety. Was he on a similar path?

    Several hours later this article was posted.

    Then on Sunday for reason now I do not remember I began to think of Bobby Fischer and his evolution that eventually lead to the asylum he got in Iceland.

    Fischer is another hyper-IQed guy who devoted decades of his life to reading and researching. He too came to the same conclusion as Unz regarding the evil of A.D. Judaism. Fischer near the end of his life became philosophical and then theological. He read Chesterton’s Outline of Sanity and books by Catholic theologians (not easy to come by in almost exclusively Lutheran Iceland).

    From a recent biography of Fischer:

    “Bobby [Fischer] talked with him about the transformation of society by creating harmony with one another, and then professed that he thought “the only hope for the world is through Catholicism.” (Endgame by Frank Brady, 2011)

    For this reason, chapter 2 of the Quran is called, "Cow".

    Quran also tells us that Jews used to worship "Aziz" as Son of God, before "Jesus" being worshiped as Son of God as Ron mentions other gods being worshiped....

    Adding further credibility to the notion that Christianity was created as an anti-Jewish weapon. I watched a vid on YouTube some time ago between Kevin McDonald and... I want to say David Duke? But they were getting in to that theory quite a bit.

    My. Well, offhand, I imagine my reaction will lie somewhere midway between the uncritical applause of the anti-semite brigade and the shocked denunciations of the guardians of political orthodxy.

    The comments I'm about to post are more or less haphazard. I merely wish to emphasize that I actually agree with most of what I read; I'm listing my points of dissent, not my points of agreement.

    First off, it's an exaggeration -- and a self-defeating one -- to say that the Russian Communists were 'overwhelmingly' Jewish. Disproportionately, certainly, and indeed, heavily, but not 'overwhelmingly.' Perhaps a third of the prominent figures were Jewish. Have half. The point is that Communism, while heavily Jewish, was also gentile.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That's obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around. The author is actually more representative of the average Jewish intellectual than he may think. Indeed, this compulsion to dissent -- rather than some sinister urge to reduce the goyim to misery -- may do much to explain the attraction revolutionary creeds hold for Jews.

    I'll also note that the monolithic Judaism paradigm fails in the face of the enormous intermarriage rate among Jewish men. If there is a Jewish plot, a good half of Jewish men are completely failing to do their duty.

    So that's about it. Revisionism -- of all kinds -- is good and useful. However, it usually goes too far. If the Jew as immaculately innocent and eternal victim paradigm is obviously inaccurate, it doesn't follow that the exact opposite must be the case.

    If it wasn't for Israel, I'd actually have no problem with Jews. I found myself confronting this when I decided to buy a camera from B&H Camera. I realized the firm is owned by Satmar Jews, who think that when the Messiah comes, all the bad gentiles will go to hell while all the good gentiles will be the slaves of Jews for all eternity.

    I thought about that for a bit, and eventually came to the conclusion that while their sentiment is hardly friendly, when the Messiah comes, we'll find out if they're right. In the meantime, they offer some excellent prices on cameras.

    Come on. You haven’t read Dante’s Inferno or works by Doctors of the Church (esp., St. Teresa of Avila) regarding Christians in hell. But apart from that, hell is merely eternal privation or eternal separation from God or eternal solitary confinement. While Christians in theory have an easier means to be united with God they also have a higher bar because of that means. And Church leaders have an even higher bar given their status— special grace or extra grace (St. John Chrysostom, Doctor of the Church, wrote that “the road to hell is paved with the skulls of bishops”).

    Not exactly, though in some cases depending on the sect.

    As far as traditional Catholic and general standardish Protestant teaching is concerned:
    http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/03744a.htm#section6

    Relevant section (I apologize for length):

    The doctrine is summed up in the phrase, Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. This saying has been the occasion of so many objections that some consideration of its meaning seems desirable. It certainly does not mean that none can be saved except those who are in visible communion with the Church. The Catholic Church has ever taught that nothing else is needed to obtain justification than an act of perfect charity and of contrition. Whoever, under the impulse of actual grace, elicits these acts receives immediately the gift of sanctifying grace, and is numbered among the children of God. Should he die in these dispositions, he will assuredly attain heaven. It is true such acts could not possibly be elicited by one who was aware that God has commanded all to join the Church, and who nevertheless should willfully remain outside her fold. For love of God carries with it the practical desire to fulfill His commandments. But of those who die without visible communion with the Church, not all are guilty of willful disobedience to God's commands. Many are kept from the Church by ignorance.

    It isn’t friendly. I don’t believe in it. But don’t Christians believe that only Christians go to heaven? While everyone else burns for eternity?
     
    A great many do not. More to the point, it takes about five minutes to get saved; no need to be born to the Master Race, cut off your foreskin, or spend years studying a thousand-year-old set of encyclopedias.

    P.S., you skipped over the slavery thing.

    And here are the indispensable truths to carry forward:

    Jews as a group will remain the same until such time as converted completely, truly, to Christ.

    Because being anti-Christ is central to Jewish identity, and because only European peoples built a Christian civilization, Jewish culture will always be viciously anti-white Gentile, because Christ-hating Jews feel they are justified in Christ-hating if they can defeat, subdue, ruin the peoples of historic Christendom.

    Protestantism even under the 'anti-Semite Luther' is a series of heresies that requires Judaizing.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a thoroughly Judaizing heresy that formed the final, and most important (because theological and therefore both spiritual and moral) basis of WASP culture.

    The British Empire spread the fruits of WASP Judaizing across the globe. The Yank Empire has continued the spread, and entrenchment, of stridently pro-Jewish culture across the globe.

    Jews as a group will remain the same until such time as converted completely, truly, to Christ.

    Yeah, but strangely this pushes people in the opposite direction. You’d think after reading this you’d come away feeling that this stuff is demonic and has been shown to be so destructive and thus that which they despise most and work so strenuously against, namely Christianity, would be good. But most of the people detailing this stuff (e.g., Kevin MacDonald) are atheist.

    Colin,

    Please watch the following documentary on the role of Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution and the Communists of Russia. I recommend it because the man who made it relies almost totally on the writings of Jewish historians and Jews involved in the Revolution.

    It isn't friendly. I don't believe in it. But don't Christians believe that only Christians go to heaven? While everyone else burns for eternity?

    I don't get offended by such a belief because a) they've not made that decision b) it seems like a fairly logical corollary to their religious doctrine c) there's a practical and historical context.

    Come on. You haven’t read Dante’s Inferno or works by Doctors of the Church (esp., St. Teresa of Avila) regarding Christians in hell. But apart from that, hell is merely eternal privation or eternal separation from God or eternal solitary confinement. While Christians in theory have an easier means to be united with God they also have a higher bar because of that means. And Church leaders have an even higher bar given their status— special grace or extra grace (St. John Chrysostom, Doctor of the Church, wrote that “the road to hell is paved with the skulls of bishops”).

  63. Being raised a Southern Baptist(Christian Zionist)it took the roll out of the internet and a desire to learn the REAL facts, along with a few years research to learn of the truths of which you speak. One web site which was instrumental in my awakening to the dangers of Talmudic Judaism was “Come and Hear”. It is a great source of information on this subject.

    Yeah, pretty much, but most Christian believers these days try to soften it a bit, insisting that “burning in hell” is just a metaphor for separation from God.

    Not exactly, though in some cases depending on the sect.

    As far as traditional Catholic and general standardish Protestant teaching is concerned:

    http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/03744a.htm#section6

    Relevant section (I apologize for length):

    The doctrine is summed up in the phrase, Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. This saying has been the occasion of so many objections that some consideration of its meaning seems desirable. It certainly does not mean that none can be saved except those who are in visible communion with the Church. The Catholic Church has ever taught that nothing else is needed to obtain justification than an act of perfect charity and of contrition. Whoever, under the impulse of actual grace, elicits these acts receives immediately the gift of sanctifying grace, and is numbered among the children of God. Should he die in these dispositions, he will assuredly attain heaven. It is true such acts could not possibly be elicited by one who was aware that God has commanded all to join the Church, and who nevertheless should willfully remain outside her fold. For love of God carries with it the practical desire to fulfill His commandments. But of those who die without visible communion with the Church, not all are guilty of willful disobedience to God’s commands. Many are kept from the Church by ignorance.

    “Over the years prominent Israeli rabbis have sometimes publicly debated whether Jewish power has now become sufficiently great that all the Christian churches of Jerusalem, Bethleham, and other nearby areas can finally be destroyed, and the entire Holy Land completely cleansed of all traces of its Christian contamination. Some have taken this position, but most have urged prudence, arguing that Jews needed to gain some additional strength before they should take such a risky step. These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.”

    Yes, but the fact remains that Judaizing heresy always produces pro-Jewish culture and politics, including culture and politics that intentionally promote Jews and Jewish notions as part of the culture war to destroy ‘other’ Christians.

    WASP culture is Exhibit A. And true-believing, including old time Puritan Judaizing theology believing, WASPs will back Israel even if Israel starts overrunning churches, turning them into synagogues or museums. The most obvious such people in America are the Pentecostal and, increasingly, Southern Baptist and other ‘fundamentalist’ Evangelicals, but all Mainline Protestant churches have their more country club version of the problem. George Will is an atheist version of the upper middle class Mainline Protestant form of WASP Judaizing.

    I have zero doubt that 100% Gentile blood devout Evangelicals I know very well and know like me would play Oliver Cromwell and murder me, if their Judaizing religious leaders were to be convinced by Rabbis that doing so would spread ‘Bible truth’. Their religion is the direct fruit of Anglo-Saxon Puritanism, and until they are fully converted from it, they will follow its directives.

    You cannot change that by changing church. It is religion that bubbles up from the cultural core. That’s the reason that English-speaking Catholicism is now as much a Judaizing mess in upper middle class form as is the Episcopal church.

    You assimilate to WASP culture: you assimilate to Judaizing.

    In a nutshell, that the reason that English replaced Yiddish as the international Jewish language. That is the reason that Jews from all the globe, speaking all languages, encourage the peoples of the world to become more Anglicized.

    No. Hitler’s vision was of Germans making serfs of Slavs. Hitler’s great hero was the queer Frederick the Great, who alternated between Enlightenment ideas that sound gooey and tender, on the one hand, and desire, on the other, to revive the most amorally brutal forms of pagan German warring as life itself.

    The Hitler problem is the Germanic problem, Continental form. WASP is the other form of the Germanic problem, each wing of which sees almost all other Europeans as inferior and fit to be ground into dust.

    Hitler and Judaizing archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell are not opposites. They are the two sides of the one coin.

    Then on Sunday for reason now I do not remember I began to think of Bobby Fischer and his evolution that eventually lead to the asylum he got in Iceland.
     
    Fischer is another hyper-IQed guy who devoted decades of his life to reading and researching. He too came to the same conclusion as Unz regarding the evil of A.D. Judaism. Fischer near the end of his life became philosophical and then theological. He read Chesterton’s Outline of Sanity and books by Catholic theologians (not easy to come by in almost exclusively Lutheran Iceland).

    From a recent biography of Fischer:


    “Bobby [Fischer] talked with him about the transformation of society by creating harmony with one another, and then professed that he thought “the only hope for the world is through Catholicism.” (Endgame by Frank Brady, 2011)
     

    Not Vatican II Catholicism, which is at least half-Protestant: the most stupidly liberal Mainline type of Protestantism.

    Ron,

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch's analysis that appeared to refute your article's claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch's did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?

    " For the last two thousand years, Jews have almost invariably existed as small, relatively weak minorities living in the lands of others, "

    The last two thousand years began in CE 18.
    Twice thereafter Rome sent powerful armies to Palestine to fight the jews.
    After beating jews militarily the ideological destruction began: christianity.
    If Jezus ever existed or not, Roman citizen Paul created christianity, aimed at jews.
    How Paul became a Roman citizen I do not (yet) know, on the total population of the Roman empire of more than four million there were no more than a few hundred thousand Roman citizens.
    They had special rights, to be fed in Rome for free, and direct appeal to the emperor in case they were persecuted.
    Palestine was a Roman province, but Pontius Pilatus could not sentence Paul, on the contrary, he got an escort of 1300 soldiers on his way from Jerusalem to the coast where he took a ship that would bring him to Rome.
    If Paul was a secret agent of the emperor, w'll never know, after going aboard the old sources do not mention Paul again.

    Then about judaism, when some correspondent told he about his book The Weight, I would not believe it.
    How many jews still think that only jews are humans, and that non jews are just animals disguised as humans, bcause it would not be proper for jews to be served by animals, I do not know.
    But when one googles 'gentiles in halacha' one finds an article by three rabbis confirming that judaic theology indeed only sees jews as humans.

    Then there is the rule and conscience question.
    Jew live good when they follow the Talmudic rules, there are two Talmuds, they're not identical, one has, from memory 20.000 rules, the other 22.000, something like that.
    Rabbi Graetz, in his nine volume or so history of the jews of 1880 or so, states that conscience has no role in judaism.
    What he does not write is how dodging rules seems to be THE jewish sport.

    Houston Stewart Chamberlain, ‘Die Grundlagen des Neunzehnten Jahrhunderts’, 1898- 1907, München; many quotes from Graetz
    Lewis Mumford, 'The city in history, Its origins, its transformations and its prospects', London, 1991, 1961;the author is of the opinion that the jewish rules had two objects: separation from other peoples, and maximum population growth.
    Michael Grant, 'The Jews in the Roman World', 1973, New York; how jews were a considerable power in the Roman world
    Yigael Yadin, ‘Massada, Hero’s fortress and the zealots’ last stand’, London 1996; the enormous Roman effort to destroy the last jewish resistance
    Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, ‘Verschlusssache Jesus, Die Wahrheit über das frühe Christentum’, (The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception, 1991), 2005, Bergisch Gladbach; the theory about Paul being a secret agent of the emperor, but also a description of the scrolls. One of them of copper sheeting, describing all the places where the temple treasures had been hidden; Grant explains how the temple got rich, so I'm inclined to believe that the descriptions were real.
    Flavius Josephus, ‘Geschichte des Jüdischen Krieges’, Wiesbaden, 1978; descriptions of the Roman jewish wars, and the oldest suicide resistance.
    Since a long time try to remember what book mentions that jews were implicated in the murder of Ceasar, he was taking away their prerogatives.
    Michel Rostovtzeff, 'Geschichte der Alten Welt, zweiter Band, Rom', Bremen 1961 (The History of the Ancient World) explains what Ceasar did, tried to do, was to unify the Roman empire, anyone the same rights. It fits into this theory that Ceasar also wanted to abolish special rights for jews.

    “Rome sent powerful armies.” Yeah, self-important since 66 AD. The six legions sent by Nero against Jews are precisely equal to the six legions he sent against Parthians – this was all Rome could muster in Middle East. The difference is that, of course, Parthians defeated Rome.

    These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.

    I strongly suspect that all of it is based upon ignorance.

    If the Gentile population became aware of these Jewish religious beliefs and the behaviors they promote, major problems for Jews might develop, so an elaborate methodology of subterfuge, concealment, and dissimulation has come into being over the many centuries to minimize this possibility, especially including the mistranslation of sacred texts or the complete exclusion of crucial sections. Meanwhile, the traditional penalty for any Jew who “informs” to the authorities on any matter regarding the Jewish community has always been death, often preceded by hideous torture.

    So basically what we’re dealing with here is a kind of 3000 year-old Scientology.

    I’ve also sometimes joked with my friends that when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.

    They’ll probably believe it; they’ll just scratch their heads wondering how we were too stupid to see it going on all around us.

    There is one authenticated child sacrificed by Jews. It’s the child Saint Hugo of Lincoln disappeared and found dead and drained of blood near Lincoln England in the 1200.

    There was also a N. Italian boy in the 1500s

    The mid 19th century Syrian was an adult, a Christian monk.

    Affirmative action is a Jewish war against the White goyim. The majority of attorneys on the anti White side of the affirmative action law suits have Jewish names. Same with the civil rights criminal attorneys that have made the once great cities crime ridden ghettoes.

    Re: employment, Whites are untouchables. It’s amazing the number of government agencies at all levels whose only function is to ensure that Whites aren’t hired for any job.

    It’s ny opinion that we goyim should be grateful American Jews haven’t yet done to us what they did to Russians 1918 to 1950? And what they’re doing to Palestinians now.

    Having personally known some Jewish weather underground and other radicals I know how much they hate us.

    I found Dr Macdonald’s trilogy in the university library where I worked. Having spent a lifetime around the Jewish old left and new left, nothing in those books was new to me.

    It was because of the Jewish tax collectors that Poland was partitioned between Russia Austria and Prussia. They kept so much of the tax money for themselves there was no money for either an army or any kind of diplomatic service.

    Before Hugh of Lincoln (1255) was William of Norwich (1144).
    The Italian boy was Simone of Trento (known as Simonino di Trento), whose case was addressed by Ron commenting the ‘scandal’ provoked by the book of Prof. Ariel Toaff “Pasque di sangue” (Blood Passover). Simonino was beatified and his cult was extremely popular in Trento until 1965 when the Catholic hierarchy ‘desanctified’ him and forbade the public cult.
    The ‘Syrian’ was Father Thomas, a French citizen originally from Sardinia, and the superior of a Franciscan convent at Damascus who disappeared along with his servant in 1840. The “Damascus Affair” brought the massive intervention of European, British and American Jews in defense of the culprits. “For the first time in American Jewish life, Jews… organized themselves politically to help Diaspora Jewry in distress.”
    “For the Jews, the Damascus affair launched modern Jewish politics on an international scale, and for American Jews it represented their first effort at creating a distinctive political agenda. Just as the United States had used this affair to proclaim its presence on the global scale, so too did American Jews, in their newspapers and at mass meetings, announce to their coreligionists in France and England that they too ought to be thought of players in global Jewish diplomacy.”
    In the same year (1840) we have also the “Rhodes blood libel” resulting in the same intervention from Europe. Salomon Mayer von Rothschild from Austria, Sir Moses Montefiore from England and Adolphe Cremieux from France (the founder of the Alliance Israelite Universelle) took the lead in fighting the ‘blood libel’

    Wow, Ron Unz really busts it wide open with his latest American Pravda installment.

    While he shines a spotlight on many new revelations, I wanted to draw attention to the following two which relate to most of the exchanges I have with my interlocutors on this site.

    The first is directed at the PEAbrain and his peeps:

    Whereas pious Muslims consider Jesus the holy prophet of God and Muhammed’s immediate predecessor, according to the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is perhaps the vilest being who ever lived, condemned to spend eternity in the bottommost pit of Hell...

    Over the years prominent Israeli rabbis have sometimes publicly debated whether Jewish power has now become sufficiently great that all the Christian churches of Jerusalem, Bethleham, and other nearby areas can finally be destroyed, and the entire Holy Land completely cleansed of all traces of its Christian contamination. Some have taken this position, but most have urged prudence, arguing that Jews needed to gain some additional strength before they should take such a risky step. These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.
     
    Ignorance, indeed!

    The second is directed at The Maven. While he constantly stresses the importance of the threat of antisemitism, I normally respond that the opposite is the real threat. And this quote by Israel Shahak backs that up:

    When racism, discrimination and xenophobia is prevalent among Jews, and directed against non-Jews, being fueled by religious motivations, it is like its opposite case, that of antisemitism and its religious motivations. Today, however, while the second is being discussed, the very existence of the first is generally ignored, more outside Israel than within it. - IS

    My. Well, offhand, I imagine my reaction will lie somewhere midway between the uncritical applause of the anti-semite brigade and the shocked denunciations of the guardians of political orthodxy.

    The comments I'm about to post are more or less haphazard. I merely wish to emphasize that I actually agree with most of what I read; I'm listing my points of dissent, not my points of agreement.

    First off, it's an exaggeration -- and a self-defeating one -- to say that the Russian Communists were 'overwhelmingly' Jewish. Disproportionately, certainly, and indeed, heavily, but not 'overwhelmingly.' Perhaps a third of the prominent figures were Jewish. Have half. The point is that Communism, while heavily Jewish, was also gentile.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That's obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around. The author is actually more representative of the average Jewish intellectual than he may think. Indeed, this compulsion to dissent -- rather than some sinister urge to reduce the goyim to misery -- may do much to explain the attraction revolutionary creeds hold for Jews.

    I'll also note that the monolithic Judaism paradigm fails in the face of the enormous intermarriage rate among Jewish men. If there is a Jewish plot, a good half of Jewish men are completely failing to do their duty.

    So that's about it. Revisionism -- of all kinds -- is good and useful. However, it usually goes too far. If the Jew as immaculately innocent and eternal victim paradigm is obviously inaccurate, it doesn't follow that the exact opposite must be the case.

    If it wasn't for Israel, I'd actually have no problem with Jews. I found myself confronting this when I decided to buy a camera from B&H Camera. I realized the firm is owned by Satmar Jews, who think that when the Messiah comes, all the bad gentiles will go to hell while all the good gentiles will be the slaves of Jews for all eternity.

    I thought about that for a bit, and eventually came to the conclusion that while their sentiment is hardly friendly, when the Messiah comes, we'll find out if they're right. In the meantime, they offer some excellent prices on cameras.

    I think it was David Horowitz (the ex-communist turned Republican, not the consumer advocate) who said about Christians (I paraphrase): I don’t care if they think I’m going to Hell, as long as they don’t try to send me there. A very reasonable point of view, I think.

    Thanks to Ron for summarizing this obscure material, and his bravery and honesty in writing about it.

    What have we learned here? That European Jews, in the Christian period between antiquity and modernity, often dwelled in superstitious and tightly controlled communities, hostile to outsiders. That on several occasions, perhaps even repeatedly, they became exploitative agents of a local ruling class, alienated from the common people. That despite the secularism and reformism that dominates the modern Jewish community, the superstitious tribalism survives as an element in the political life of the nation-state of Israel, and the rapacious economic practices as an element in the business life of modern America. That's my instant synopsis.

    What an interesting article! As a non-Jew, who did not have an education in Judaism, I have a slightly different take on Judaism than on Israel Shahak.

    1. In my judgment, Shahak failed to distinguish between rabbinical rulings and local folk traditions. In his book, he includes a reference to Jews spitting in front of Christian churches and cemeteries. While this did sometimes happen, Baruch Kimmerling claimed--in correspondence with me--that this practice was a folk tradition and not an official religious practice. In any community with millions of members, some people will do disgusting things. However, that does not mean that most of its members approve of--or even know about--these practices.

    On a human level, I can't imagine too many mothers in any culture encouraging their children to spit. A big part of motherhood is discouraging children from doing disgusting things with their bodies. Why undermine all that hard work with church spitting?

    2. A useful perspective on the book is provided by a review by Baruch Kimmerling: https://www.jstor.org/stable/2538163?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents. This link provides a preview but gives enough to give the flavor of the review. Kimmerling's basic claim is that Shahak exaggerates the degree of anti-Gentile animus in Judaism and that the dominant reaction is one of anxiety and fear, rather than hatred.

    3. Furthermore, according to Kimmerling, various "loopholes" existed within Judaism that allowed kind treatment of Gentiles. Usually, these loopholes were framed in terms of avoiding hurt feelings and endangering Jews, but in fact, these provisions gave Jews a wider leeway in befriending and helping Gentiles.

    4. Most Jewish doctors, even the Orthodox, would not adhere to provisions about discriminatory treatment of non-Jewish patients.

    5. I do not deny that the fanaticism Shahak describes does in fact exist. However, Judaism embraces many different interpretations, many of which are quite different than the ones he discusses in his book. Consider, for example, the Israeli group "Rabbis for Human Rights," which adamantly opposes the views Shahak objects to. Many of these rabbis are Orthodox.

    6. I once worked as a long-term substitute at two schools run by Chabad Lubavitch. Everyone knew I wasn't Jewish and I was well and fairly treated.

    7. One should always distinguish between a religious system and the people in it. While I do think ultraorthodoxy--but not modern orthodoxy--is a flawed religious system, many of the people in that system are quite decent individuals.

    8. I despise the way ultra-Orthodox Jewish females are treated.

    9. In spite of my disagreements with Shahak's views on Judaism, I believe he was a great man who did heroic work to protect the human rights of Palestinians.

    Here’s one of the Jewish “protesters” at the 2018 Academics’ Ball in Vienna:

    https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-vienna-ball-right/protesters-arrested-at-right-wing-partys-vienna-ball-idUKBREA0N1MK20140124

    The organisation “Jetzt Zeichen Setzen!” (Take a Stand Now), which campaigns for remembrance of victims of Nazism, published an open letter this month against the ball signed by six Holocaust survivors.

    “As survivors of the Nazi era, we are stunned that the Hofburg, which belongs to the republic, is still opening its doors to representatives of extreme-right organisations from Austria and Europe,” it said.

    Ron, as a Jew raised in the Reform tradition, I can't speak to the claims about Talmudic Judaism. But your claims that "our media pundits regularly identify Putin as 'the new Hitler'" seems largely untrue. A quick Google search on "the new Hitler" turns up only 70,000 results, links that refer mostly to Saddam Hussain, various Iranian leaders, and Trump. A search for "the new Hitler" and "Putin" turns up only 17,000 results and from what I can tell many of the linked stories criticize the formulation. Can you point to even two or three significant pundits who have called Putin "the new Hitler"?

    I'm also no expert on the subject of Hitler's economic policies, but I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing "the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies" is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It's true as far as it goes, but it doesn't go very far.

    As to all the claims about pre-modern Judaism, I can't say, but many of the practices and superstitions you cite don't seem very different from contemporaneous Christianity. And your dark musings on the lasting impact of the alleged centuries of inculcated "seething hatred" for Christians doesn't jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that's conspicuous in its absence.

    There were also some remarkable ironies, and not long afterward I joked to a (Jewish) friend of mine that I’d suddenly discovered that Naziism could best be described as “Judaism for Wimps” or perhaps Judaism as practiced by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
     
    The first time I have encountered the idea that Nazism emulated Judaism was in Umberto Eco's essay in a niche art journal. Recently I tried to locate it bu I failed. That I do not reminder the name of the journal does not help.

    It is interesting that a Polish historian wrote about Nazism as an emulation of Judaism already before the WWII and then in underground publications during the WWII in Poland. He worked on his Jewish Civilization before the WWII which finished right after the war. It has been published since in Polish but for obvious reasons not widely know. Supposedly an English translation from a small publishing house in Poland is available:

    https://sklep.antyk.org.pl/p,the-jewish-civilization,6451.html
    https://www.amazon.com/Jewish-Civilization-Polish-Feliks-Koneczny/product-reviews/095070511X/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_show_all_btm?ie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews
     
    Koneczny is more known for his 1935 "On the Plurality of Civilsations." Here reviewed by Carroll Quigley

    https://www.jstor.org/stable/2504158?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    and here the whole book in English with a preface by Arnold Toynbee

    https://www.scribd.com/doc/4464979/ON-THE-PLURALITY-OF-CIVILIZATIONS-Feliks-Koneczny-Entire-Book

    An this is from fairly recent critical article about Koneczny's Jewish CIvilazation and his raising popularity among nationalists in Poland:


    https://ejournals.bc.edu/ojs/index.php/scjr/article/viewFile/1552/1406
    Koneczny was quite explicit in his judgment of ―Jewish civilization. In his learned opinion, since its origins it had been an incomplete civilization, defective, not possessing all the categories of being, without Truth and Beauty. Indeed, he detected only the tiniest provision of the intellectual categories of being. As an example of these shortcomings, Koneczny noted that for Jews historical thought itself is very, very difficult. From my own experience, I know that for Jewish students it is difficult to acquire this sense, difficult to understand the historical nature of people and things...He consistently maintained in his works that the civilizational question is more a matter of mentality than one of race. Thus, the key concern with Jewish civilization was the threat that the Jewish way of thinking posed to Latin civilization.

    For Koneczny, Jewish civilization was frozen in time. Already in his Plurality of Civilisations (1935), Koneczny was maintaining that the whole of community life the whole structure of Jewish civilization with a mass of detail is contained in the rules of the Old Testament. It is a sacral civilization. Jewish civilization added in time a second source-book of Jewish religion and civilisation—the Talmud... It may safely be said that there is nothing in heaven or earth which is not debated there, but always exclusively from the sacral angle... Not a corner of life escapes the restraint of rules allegedly coming from Jehovah. Jewish civilisation would become even more strongly sacral.

    The fundamental flaw in Jewish civilization is that it is sacral, which leads Jews to embrace a priori thinking and a suspiciousness towards secular learning. As early as 1926, Koneczny was writing in Ateneum Kapłańskie (the most important organ for the Polish clergy during the interwar period) that ―of all religions the Jewish one is most identical with a civilization. The Talmud is this civilization, because it contains the method of collective life in all its details, not neglecting a single category, but with several huge defects (such as the lack of scholarship)... In Jewry religion and civilization are the same. He added that while religion ―is the most important part of a civilization...only religions of a lower order create civilizations and these are also of a lower type. Koneczny later concluded that in ―sacral civilisations religion acts as a brake on progress. A religion which defines everything in categories of being must at the same time petrify everything, and in consequence its adherents are often helpless in face of new currents emerging in the process of time. Where everything is established a priori, where there is no doubt and no inquiry, progress is excluded and instead there is danger of stagnation. For Jewish civiliza- tion, this meant that there was no ―creative originality.

    Koneczny placed special emphases on Jewish legalism, which is evident in Mosaic law. He believed that the contractual agreement between them and their god meant that Jews placed law before ethics. Koneczny found that over the course of centuries there emerged here and there apriori law. It imparted sanction not to existing circumstances and was not created in a natural manner, but it was imagined, invented...Mosaic law was a prototype of apriori law. Koneczny believed that this focus on apriori law is a fundamental feature of Judaism, and consequently Jewish civilization. He stressed that ―[a]mong Jews...law is not based on ethics, but precisely the opposite: ethics are based on law. He theorized that this sacralized law became the regulator for all aspects of Jewish life, leaving no room for the development of ethics. An elephantiasis of law thus emerged: the more law the better!

    Another important factor for Koneczny was the notion of Jewish chosenness. He concluded that this special relationship with God and the faith that all must end with the Jews ruling the world was the most immutable, distinguishing characteristic of Jewish civilization. Koneczny thus identified an ethic of exclusivity that generated contempt, then hatred, for foreigners. In all of universal history, Jews have developed hatred to the highest degree... This all highlights the defective nature of Jewish civilization. This collective predestination reflects Jewish emphasis on the collective, rather than the individual, and precludes a personal relationship with God that is found in Catholicism.

    Koneczny posited that even while Jewish civilization embraced the ethic of exclusivity Jews have been forced to live among other peoples, to live within other civilizations. According to Koneczny, Jewish civilization experienced significant changes among other nations,‘ but what is most interesting is that the changes occurred for the better: the supplement of a defective civilization in many directions and lifting it to a higher level in each case. For example, Jews embraced other languages in order to express a higher order of abstract thought, since Hebrew was itself a language able to facilitate civilizational development only to a certain level, beyond which it becomes a brake on higher development.
     

    The first time I have encountered the idea that Nazism emulated Judaism was in Umberto Eco’s essay in a niche art journal. Recently I tried to locate it bu I failed. That I do not reminder the name of the journal does not help.

    Perhaps pre-dating that was this:

    The Portage to San Cristobal of A.H.

    which caused a minor stir when it was published and adapted for the stage. I remember reading a review of the play in Newsweek, in which some of the dialogue was quoted and it expressed a similar idea. It was however, just a work of fiction.

    Ron,

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch's analysis that appeared to refute your article's claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch's did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?

    A cursory search reveals this: https://www.unz.com/runz/meritocracy-response-to-prof-gelman-on-jewish-elite-overrepresentation/?highlight=baytch ; I don’t know if that’s the article of Ms.(?) Baytch’s to which you refer.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?

    Could you link to the study you’re talking about, or some discussion or summary of it? What with you not being familiar with Mr. Unz’s articles and his possibly not being familiar with yours it seems there is a good deal of talking-past going on here. Here are some search results: https://www.unz.com/?s=crimson&Action=Search&authors=ron-unz&ptype=item ; here are some more ; https://www.unz.com/?s=crimson&Action=Search&ptype=item&commentsearch=include&commenter=Ron+Unz ; and finally here are some more: https://www.unz.com/?s=self-identified&Action=Search&ptype=all&commentsearch=include&commenter=Ron+Unz

    I haven’t gone through them all but these seem like relevant search terms.

    Sir Richard Burton, the famed explorer and great ethnologist of the nineteenth century, reached many similar conclusions during his inquiries into Judaism. While he was British consul in Damascus he attempted to curtail the activities of the Jewish merchants – who had committed abuses against the local population. Appealing to their coreligionists in powerful positions in England, they succeeded in helping to get Burton removed from his post.

    After his death a jumble of Burton’s writings on the subject was published under the title “The Jew, the Gypsy and El Islam” (http://jrbooksonline.com/jgei.htm). Originally, the manuscript had included an appendix headed “Human Sacrifice Among the Sephardine [sic] or Eastern Jews” on documented cases of ritual murder but this was suppressed and has remained inaccessible. In recent years, however, the forbidden manuscript has briefly surfaced; being offered for sale at Christies but seemingly not reaching the reserve price of 210,000 pounds. There was huge controversy over the appropriateness of this offering so the actual fate of the work is unknown.

    The manuscript of "Human Sacrifice Among the Sephardine" was bought by the Board of Deputies of British Jews in the early 20th century in order to conceal its contents. It was they who announced they were offering it for sale in 2001. They claimed they were so short of money that they had no choice but to do so. It wasn't sold, and I suspect the whole thing was a ruse to draw more donations.

Seems they’re much more of a warrior people than we’ve suspected — like the Vikings or the Lakota or the Japanese, only secretly so. Indeed, seeing how the previous three groups are now emasculated shadows of their former selves, the Jewish approach has been the most successful. I must read Shahak’s book!

    Unz's chain of masterpieces remains unbroken!

    These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.
     
    I strongly suspect that all of it is based upon ignorance.

    If the Gentile population became aware of these Jewish religious beliefs and the behaviors they promote, major problems for Jews might develop, so an elaborate methodology of subterfuge, concealment, and dissimulation has come into being over the many centuries to minimize this possibility, especially including the mistranslation of sacred texts or the complete exclusion of crucial sections. Meanwhile, the traditional penalty for any Jew who “informs” to the authorities on any matter regarding the Jewish community has always been death, often preceded by hideous torture.
     
    So basically what we're dealing with here is a kind of 3000 year-old Scientology.

    I’ve also sometimes joked with my friends that when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.
     
    They'll probably believe it; they'll just scratch their heads wondering how we were too stupid to see it going on all around us.

    3000-year old Scientology! Love the metaphor!

  95. If reincarnation exists, our Ron Unz has been in former life James Joyce or Dorothy Richardson. Karmic tendencies of stream-of-consciousness style of writing are so strong that he begins with Talmud & Kabbalah, then goes on to expulsions of Jews, usury, medical profession among Jews, Rabbinical nutjobs ..and then to Communists, Nazis, US Jewish ethno-nationalists, Kevin MacDonald, Solzhenitsyn & the rest. It is simply impossible to comment on all, or most of these topics.

    Generally, the author has correctly described, in Jungian terms, Jewish “shadow” or inner devil, i.e. sum of destructive & negative tendencies of this entity (we can perceive any collective as an entity, a sort of super-personality as depicted, with different aims, in Hobbes’ “Leviathan”).

    Where Unz is not fair, it is his reductionist view. He equates Jews with their (stereo)typical vices, which is the same mistake we make when we reduce a whole person to his loathsome traits, while ignoring laudable ones.

    I’ll mostly c/p something I wrote before, with just a few extra points:

    1. except (perhaps ?) some fringe sects, Talmudic Judaism does not worship Satan. The claim is simply a monumental nonsense. It is a misunderstanding that is frequently attached to another Middle Eastern sect, Yazidis, and in their case it is also a sort of spiritual calumny & gross disinformation (in our Western world, Cathars had been accused of the same perversion). Esoteric meaning of the role of Satan is just disfigured by orthodox religious literalists.

    2. blood libel? Not convincing. As I’ve said before, it is true that human sacrifice had existed in virtually all archaic societies; it is also true that occult traditions frequently consider human blood as the most potent intensifier in acquisition of occult powers. Just, Judaism has gotten rid of human sacrifice long ago & there is no evidence that Jews (or Jewish occultists) had been practicing blood “potentiation” either in the first Christian millennium, or in Zoroastrian, Greek-Roman, Mesopotamian polytheistic & Islamic societies. Significantly enough, accusations of “blood libel” chronologically coincided with the rise of anti-Judaism in Western Europe & intensity of religious fervor we associate with Crusades. More, the claim that these rituals were, supposedly, uniform has not been corroborated. Even perfectly quotidian & normal Jewish religious practices significantly vary across time & place (Sephardim, Mizrahim, Ashkenazim,..).

    As far as Jewish ethnocentrism goes- it’s the cornerstone of their religion & identity (which has been formed from, roughly, 700 BC to 100 AD). It is not a reaction, but the very essence of self- definition of that ethno-religious group & culture. Judaism is an imaginative refurbishing of other Near Eastern religions; it does not possess its own mythology. Normative Judaism- unlike Kabbalah- is a Platonized religion in many respects similar to early Confucianism: life’s fulfillment is achieved through learning, study & mostly mental work- and not piety, nor supernatural yearnings. Early Judaism, as recorded in the Pentateuch, had not possessed that idea. Somewhere around 100-300 A.D. Jews adopted Plato’s ethic of self-cultivation through intellectual work & produced a vast literature- from contemporary perspective- of, generally, dated & sterile Behemoth nitpicking trivialities (Talmud, Responsa, ..). There are some problematic passages in the Talmud with regard to Gentiles & Christians. Babylonian Talmud was composed from ca. 200-600 AD; it has 6,500 big folio pages & its English translation runs over 15,000 pages. So- why not openly say there are a few insulting passages that reflect early medieval spirit of times? Talmud is a mixture of wisdom literature (similar to Confucian “Analects”), various superstitions on magic & astrology, exegeses on murky passages of Hebrew Bible (frequently fantastic & hilarious), and mostly a codification of Jewish law, similar to Islamic shariah (agriculture, marriage, various taboos & ceremonies, crimes & misdemeanors, food etc.)

    Christianity was mentioned only a few times in this library of books, almost always in negative light. Why not publicly say it’s obsolete in some areas? And that such fellows are, basically, freaks:

    With regard to Judaism’s “ideological” spiritual arrogance, Shahak (and others) are right: their religious culture is essentially supremacist & there is no other spiritual tradition I know of that denies other people basically the same anthropological status in religious sense. In Kabbalah, which is esoteric extension of normative Judaism, only Jews possess divine portion of “soul”. Others do not.

    We know from different Gnostic religious traditions that they all aver there is split between empirical human psyche & essential, divine Self (Buddhata/Buddha Nature in Mahayana Buddhism, Atman in Vedanta Hinduism, Daimon or Nous in Greek religion, Inner Man and Christ Logos in (Neoplatonic) Christianity, Angel Christ in Christian Gnosticism, ruh/spirit and Perfect Nature in Hermetic variants of Islamic Sufism etc.). Only in Kabbalah & other variants of Judaism they deny that other humans are, basically, the same as they are. According to them, only Jews possess Neshamah (which is divine), or “upper layers” of Neshamah, like Chaya and Yechidah. Such religious arrogance & spiritual autism do not exist, as far as I know, anywhere else.

    For those interested in Jewish controversial topics, I would recommend Shahak’s books (as a beginning), then Lindemann & Walter Laqueur:

    For a brief history & practice, Raynor & Goldberg (although they treat Pentateuch & Moses story as a proto-historical narrative):

    Much more comprehensive history is classic Simon Dubnov’s monumental masterpiece.

    If you are interested in Kabbalah, then crucial works by Gerschom Scholem & Moshe Idel, for instance:

    For comparativist history of ideas, no one is better than Mircea Eliade:

    Other topics (Nazism, Solzhenitsyn, Jewish role in Bolshevism & Hollywood,..) had been addressed elsewhere, and this post is already way too long ….

    In the 21st century world of internet discourse one thing I've internalized is the "crazy bomb". There are some subjects, so fraught, that everyone is "triggered".

    I think that's a big problem. To be triggered should be: to be disqualified from discourse of any consequence. I sincerely believe that. If I could put one limit on democracy, that would be my limit: does anything trigger you? ... ok, then kindly go outside while the adults discuss serious matters, matters of consequence.

    So what do we do when there are subjects that trigger: everyone? 90%, suffices, for "everyone".

    I've spent much of the last 18 hours wondering if I can ever post a comment on Unz again - not because of the substance of what Mr. Unz wrote - though there's much to doubt and disagree with and I think that a charitable interpretation is that, that's his point: to un-trigger us by forcing the triggering discussion.

    But the reason I've wondered is: crazy bomb. Mr. Unz just dropped the most high-power crazy bomb I've seen maybe in my lifetime's memory. Everyone will be triggered. Anti-Semites, "allergic" gentiles, and certainly Jews. Everyone.

    Is discussion possible?

    There is the story of the boy and the dinosaur - who found a dinosaur in his bedroom and his parents refused to discuss it because: dinosaurs don't exist - and they remained steadfast in their refusal until the dinosaur's limbs grew out the windows and legs through the floors and he walked off with the house.
    Charitable interpretation: Unz is trying to get us to discuss the dinosaur

    There is Howard W. Campbell Jr. A possibility that should terrify the bonafide anti-Semites who find a commenting home here. Another charitable interpretation.

    And after we clear the crazy bomb and charitable interpretations, there's finally your point. I'd like a word about that, and I worry it's a word spoken in the dust cloud on the bottom floor of a building a quarter second after a bomb detonated in the basement and the upper floors are about to collapse on us.

    But here's the word.

    It is said that the first crime is that one must not "name the Jew". You are supposed to figure this out. Everyone is supposed to figure this out. It is a symptom of autism that one does not figure this out.

    Because we will not discuss this many who do figure it out derive different conclusions about why this is a rule.

    I would like to suggest to your point, and to Mr. Unz, that the most charitable reason for this rule is the true reason, and more importantly : it is a universal reason.

    One must not "name the Jew" for the same reason one must not name : anyone - collectively.

    That reason is: we are human, or cartoons. All acts of collective naming - reduce us from humans, to cartoons.

    This is why I have argued consistently , on these comments, that people must stop adopting the term "white". To adopt and accept this term, is to agree to be named, and to be named by people who know exactly what they are doing when they name you. They dehumanize you. They make it possible to collectively judge you and condemn you. By accepting the name, you hasten the advance of their heinous agenda.

    And "they", don't need to be anybody at all. No Protocols are required, just Hobbes and Game Theory. It's a war of man against man.

    Unz is unfair here - dangerously so - but if this was intended as a light to lead us out of the darkness then it starts with this rule: let us stop naming ... anyone. Collective judgment will be all of our collective doom.

    If this article doesn't kill unz.com, once and for all, and, along with it, ISteve, than nothing will.

    My thoughts exactly. This article may end up finally killing unz.com — it will now be (properly) understood to be a hate site by the vast majority of people made aware of it. Ron Unz must have, at some level, understood this when he was preparing the piece for publication. Which means that his article is an act of self-destruction.

    If unz.com goes, so will iSteve. That’s the real tragedy.

    Ron, I don't know if you've drunk your own koolaid or if this is some sort of bizarre grand experiment in creating a deranged and lunatic cult.

    There's a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived. The oscillating hot/cold and reasonable/unreasonable tone is the type of manipulation that I am sensitive to seeing, and reacting against.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you've already jumped into fantasy land.

    For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. The Talmud is not. It is instead a millenia old vast Jewish Wikipedia in which the most controversial stuff would be found in the commentson edits, the comments on comments on edits and so on and so on and so on.

    Were an alien to browse the internet message boards as you may have browsed the Talmud, they would make all sorts of unreal conclusions.

    I suspect that indeed the huge swelling in third world anti-Western resentment pre-9/11 may actually have been a result of middle class people in the third world getting connected and assuming Western peoples were entirely depraved and without any moral value. As time has passed, they have gained a context for this and their anti-Western feelings are incomparably lower, despite all of the wars.

    There’s a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived.

    That seems yet another good example of projection. Your plainly canned commentary is clearly contrived, but you do get high points for consistency.

    Your comments rarely fail to amuse, but do you really think you’re accomplishing anything of value by making them? In case you’re wondering, they substantiate much of the author’s case against the arrogant fanatics.

    The Torah is only the first five books of the Old Testament. Ron said:

    Don’t be silly. The Talmud is a vast collection of purposefully contradictory attempts to explain the written Torah. This makes the Torah, and the rest of the Old Testament, far more central to Judaism than the Talmud. Your weaselly attempt to avoid admitting this by focussing on his use of the word “most” is utterly irrelevant, especially given the relative importance of the five books of the Torah versus the rest of the Old Testament.

    Unz's chain of masterpieces remains unbroken!

    These days, many tens of millions of zealous Christians and especially Christian Zionists are enthusiastic advocates for Jews, Judaism, and Israel, and I strongly suspect that at least some of that enthusiasm is based upon ignorance.
     
    I strongly suspect that all of it is based upon ignorance.

    If the Gentile population became aware of these Jewish religious beliefs and the behaviors they promote, major problems for Jews might develop, so an elaborate methodology of subterfuge, concealment, and dissimulation has come into being over the many centuries to minimize this possibility, especially including the mistranslation of sacred texts or the complete exclusion of crucial sections. Meanwhile, the traditional penalty for any Jew who “informs” to the authorities on any matter regarding the Jewish community has always been death, often preceded by hideous torture.
     
    So basically what we're dealing with here is a kind of 3000 year-old Scientology.

    I’ve also sometimes joked with my friends that when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.

    A few typos I picked up:

    "One or the one" should probably be "one or the other."

    "Discontented facts" should probably be "disconnected facts."

    "Lenni Brunner" should be Lenni Brenner.

    -----------

    All in all, I found this a solid summary of some interesting but obscure factual claims. I think it was somewhat irresponsible not include a discussion of just how widespread such beliefs, attitudes and practices are among Jews today. Without such a discussion, I fear too much of the commentary will be about how 'anti-semitic' the essay is, rather than how accurate it is.

    Also, maybe “…charms, portions, spells, incantations…” should read “…charms, potions, spells, incantations…” :-)

    Excellent article.

    Lol, a short while ago I would have agreed with this article.

    But the truth is simply that the whole world is always at war, all groups constantly war against each other.

    The fact that Jews were kicked out of every country is trotted out as some highly significant fact pointing to the uniquely anti social character of Jewish culture, and I myself viewed it this way not too long ago – but every European country has been at constant and unceasing war for all of its history, and Asian victims of European aggression have found something uniquely anti social in European culture.

    England, France, Italy, Spain, Germany – constant war. This is no different than Jews being constantly at war with every society among which they settle.

    It seems to be the law of this world that every group with a distinct identity wages war against every other group to the extent of its power and ability.

    Jews use cunning and deceit and money to wage war – Europeans tend to find this uniquely abhorrent, much preferring their own method of war which is physical strength and brutality, but I can find no reason why a physically stronger person has more of a “right” to impose his will on others than the cunning person.

    Jews are remarkably clear headed about this – I have had Jews tell me that Jews cheat, but gentiles murder, and this is what one should watch out for in dealing with the two groups. History bears this out – but in truth, the roles could beeasily reversed under the right circumstances, as a weapon is dictated by the situation.

    Each group uses its own distinct weapons, and views the weapons of other groups as uniquely “dishonorable”. But this is a part of the human comedy.

    Jewish contempt and animosity for non Jews is very real and one can find any number of quotes in Jewish sacred scriptures which bear this out – but Jewish universalism and even respect and appreciation for goyim (!) is equally real and an important strain in Jewish culture, eschatology, and theory of this world and the end of days.

    Like any pre modern culture, Jewish culture is complex, multi-faceted, and contradictory – a rigid, simplistic mentality of the kind produced by the excessive study of mathematics, science, or computer science is ill equipped to make heads or tails of a way of thought that is fundamentally richer and more complex and equivocal than the rigid simplicities of modernity, with its anxiety-based yearning for simple facts to anchor itself onto in a shifting quicksand world.

    It would be interesting to contrast the anti social passages of Judaism with those of Christianity or other groups – for Christians, all others suffer eternal torments for not believing what they believe. Even Jews agree that righteous gentiles go to heaven.

    It is all part of the human comedy – minds that are able to gain the larger perspective and soar high above the petty entanglements of group identity and self interest can look down on these skirmishes, engagements, and battles with each group vying for position, trying to paint its rival as uniquely capable of acts it itself commits daily, can look down on these things from the perspective of eternity and smile a bit.

    But there are few such minds – and nothing is more exciting to most people than to do spend their lives in jockeying for some minor advantage over some rival group.

    The one good point about this article is that Jews are indeed the enemy of every group they settle among, at least potentially, just as the English nation spent its history as a nation (now ending) in endless warfare against enemies near and far, against close neighbors and distant Asiatic kingdoms, according to the ancient law of group against group, individual against individual.

    The correct way to view the attempt to find Jewish culture uniquely anti social by Europeans is as merely another skirmish in the war of groups, and as an attempt by Europeans to gain advantage over their rivals.

    Of course, there is a way to escape this war of all against all, but in each generation only few succeed in doing so – ultimately, I hope, everyone will, as the cycle of reincarnation continues, and each individual advances up the rungs.

    Well, some Jews believe "righteous Gentiles" go to heaven, just as some Christian sects believe all good people go to heaven, too. Some Jews, which I think Mr Unz pointed out, believe that Gentiles have no souls, and so don't enjoy an afterlife. Many Jews, even some of the religious ones, don't believe in an afterlife at all. There's no Pope of Judaism, issuing orders for what the different sects of Judaism believe. And of course, there are many, maybe even the majority of Jews, who reject all this supernatural claptrap.

    Yours is a philosophical — rather than political — angle on the issue.
    You may say: it's merely the angle of how things visibly are.
    Yet it is the angle that decides the view, rather than the other way around.

    For truth to be wanted, nothing else has to be wanted concomitantly — truth, in its complete refractoriness to wants and will upsets every cart and spoils every business — to silence/repress/curtain off it is an universal human need (or it wouldn't be done universally as it is).

    You are markedly veering into philosophy, I doubt politics can be aliment to you henceforth.

    The same goes for Unz's appetite for truth; he might later find philosophy more hospitable to it than politics is.
    And he might find that "official history" is the most proper mirroring of its addrees, in that it is the demand that forms the offer.

    An individual sociopath in a trust-based society will virtually always "win" his parasitic, extractive and sometimes lethal game because he's the only one playing it. His targets just want to establish normal, trusting relationships. It has nothing to do with intelligence.

    Interestingly enough, the alleged percentage of sociopaths in Western societies is 2%. That's what shields them. For every sociopath, there are 49 non-sociopaths who will mostly operate, and experience, relatively normal interpersonal relationships which makes them susceptible.

    Fortunately/unfortunately for the Tribe, their sociopathy is organised and multi-generational. It leads to great material successes in the short-medium term but that inevitably leads to massive blowbacks when their greed and hubris outstrips their stealth capabilities.

    Why do jews want to control the world ?
    I do not know.
    Why did Baruch bring FDR into politics to start a world war ?
    Why does Soros want to control and change Hungary ?
    Both men were seen as second rate citizens when they were young, Baruch in the USA.
    Soros as a child experienced anti semitism in WWII in Hungary.
    Baruch's father fled anti semitic Germany around 1870, from memory.
    Their motives, fear, revenge, lust for power, some mixture, I do not know.
    If you read Stephen Steinlight fear does exist.
    And indeed, it cannot be denied that christianity persecuted jews, Islam far less.
    When christian persecution began, suppose no later than when the Roman empire became christian.
    The reformation of Luther was no improvement, Luther seems to have hated jews.
    Just in the 19th century jews became equal civil rights in most countries.
    But, writes Katz, these equal rights were given in the expectation that jews would disappear through assimilation.
    The opposite happened, jews continued to intermarry, had close economic cooperation.
    ‘From prejudice to destruction’, Jacob Katz, 1980, Cambridge MA
    Some jews developed loyalty problems:
    Jakob Wassermann, 'MEIN WEG ALS DEUTSCHER UND ALS JUDE', Berlin 1921
    His novel to me seems a great description of how jews felt
    Jakob Wassermann, 'Die Juden von Zirndorf', 1897 1999 München
    Of course there were assimilated jews galore, in western countries, most of them sephardic, and anti zionism, what they saw as an insult to them.
    Gilad Atzmon, who describes himself as 'Palestinian jew', he was born in Israel, wants collective psychotherapy for all jews.
    As to ritual murder, I nowhere ever saw convincing proof, just accusations.

    That seems yet another good example of projection. Your plainly canned commentary is clearly contrived, but you do get high points for consistency.

    Your comments rarely fail to amuse, but do you really think you're accomplishing anything of value by making them? In case you're wondering, they substantiate much of the author's case against the arrogant fanatics.

    What do you think I am fanatical about?

    Ask them what a ‘Nazi’ is.
    Of course their answer will be ‘holocaust’ something,
    Then ask them for actual proof.

    Joe Sobran’s 1995 article “The Jewish Establishment” begins:

    In the early 1930s, Walter Duranty of the New York Times was in Moscow, covering Joe Stalin the way Joe Stalin wanted to be covered. To maintain favor and access, he expressly denied that there was famine in Ukraine even while millions of Ukrainian Christians were being starved into submission. For his work Duranty won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism.

    To this day, the Times remains the most magisterial and respectable of American newspapers.

    Now imagine that a major newspaper had had a correspondent in Berlin during roughly the same period who hobnobbed with Hitler, portrayed him in a flattering light, and denied that Jews were being mistreated — thereby not only concealing, but materially assisting the regime’s persecution. Would that paper’s respectability have been unimpaired several decades later?

    There you have an epitome of what is lamely called “media bias.” The Western supporters of Stalin haven’t just been excused; they have received the halo of victimhood for the campaign, in what liberals call the “McCarthy era,” to get them out of the government, the education system, and respectable society itself.

    Not only persecution of Jews but any critical mention of Jewish power in the media and politics is roundly condemned as “anti-Semitism.” But there isn’t even a term of opprobrium for participation in the mass murders of Christians. Liberals still don’t censure the Communist attempt to extirpate Christianity from Soviet Russia and its empire, and for good reason — liberals themselves, particularly Jewish liberals, are still trying to uproot Christianity from America.

    It’s permissible to discuss the power of every other group, from the Black Muslims to the Christian Right, but the much greater power of the Jewish Establishment is off-limits. That, in fact, is the chief measure of its power: its ability to impose its own taboos while tearing down the taboos of others — you might almost say its prerogative of offending. You can read articles in Jewish-controlled publications from the Times to Commentary blaming Christianity for the Holocaust or accusing Pope Pius XII of indifference to it, but don’t look for articles in any major publication that wants to stay in business examining the Jewish role in Communism and liberalism, however temperately.

    Power openly acquired, openly exercised, and openly discussed is one thing. You may think organized labor or the Social Security lobby abuses its power, but you don’t jeopardize your career by saying so. But a kind of power that forbids its own public mention, like the Holy Name in the Old Testament, is another matter entirely.

    But then Sobran says (bold is mine):

    There is an important anomaly here. The word “Jewish,” in this context, doesn’t include Orthodox or otherwise religious Jews. The Jews who still maintain the Hebraic tradition of millennia are marginal, if they are included at all, in the Jewish establishment that wields journalistic, political, and cultural power. Morally and culturally, the Orthodox might be classed as virtual Christians, much like the descendants of Christians who still uphold the basic morality, if not the faith, of their ancestors. Many of these Jews are friendly to Christians and eager to make common cause against the moral decadence they see promoted by their apostate cousins. Above all, the Orthodox understand, better than almost anyone else in America today, the virtues — the necessity — of tribalism, patriarchal authority, the moral bonds of kinship.

    The Jewish establishment, it hardly needs saying, is predominantly secularist and systematically anti-Christian. In fact, it is unified far more by its hostility to Christianity than by its support of Israel, on which it is somewhat divided. The more left-wing Jews are faintly critical of Israel, though never questioning its “right to exist” — that is, its right to exist on terms forbidden to any Christian country; that is, its right to deny rights to non-Jews.

    A state that treated Jews as Israel treats gentiles would be condemned outright as Nazi-like. But Israel is called “democratic,” even “pluralistic.”

    Bravo to Ron Unz, then, for pointing out that the anti-Christian and anti-goy strains in Jewish thinking are foundational:

    Obviously the Talmud is hardly regular reading among ordinary Jews these days, and I would suspect that except for the strongly Orthodox and perhaps most rabbis, barely a sliver are aware of its highly controversial teachings. But it is important to keep in mind that until just a few generations ago, almost all European Jews were deeply Orthodox, and even today I would guess that the overwhelming majority of Jewish adults had Orthodox grand-parents. Highly distinctive cultural patterns and social attitudes can easily seep into a considerably wider population, especially one that remains ignorant of the origin of those sentiments, a condition enhancing their unrecognized influence. A religion based upon the principal of “Love Thy Neighbor” may or may not be workable in practice, but a religion based upon “Hate Thy Neighbor” may be expected to have long-term cultural ripple effects that extend far beyond the direct community of the deeply pious. If nearly all Jews for a thousand or two thousand years were taught to feel a seething hatred toward all non-Jews and also developed an enormous infrastructure of cultural dishonesty to mask that attitude, it is difficult to believe that such an unfortunate history has had absolutely no consequences for our present-day world, or that of the relatively recent past.

    Sorry, if jewish neighbors had been murdering your children for thousands of years, then lying about it and then persecuting anyone who found out and wanted to put a stop to it, then those jews DESERVED EVERYTHING that those vile jewish talmudic rabbi's managed to spit and project at Hitler.

    Child murdering jews, and all those jews who protect them, and all those jews who don't go to the law to expose these child torturers and murderers, are culpable. In short, all jews have a width and breadth of guilt and shame that makes their beloved "Nazi's" look like kindergarten teachers.

    I heard years ago that Christianity is so despise in Israel that in school the students are taught to write the arithmetic plus sign as the letter "t" rather than "+" because the "+" sign resembles the Christianity cross.

    That sounds pretty silly. There are a number of different crosses but overwhelmingly the Christian cross is depicted as having a shaft under the horizontal cross piece a good deal longer than the part above. The Red Cross is about the only reminder I can think of what is sometimes depicted on the shield or armour of a Medieval knight. Can anyone substantiate this tale?

    So did another Israeli immigrant I know confirm it when I asked her.

    It’s also why the Israeli early zionists refused to wear ties back in the early + mid 20 th century when most men wore suits and ties except when doing manual work.

    The long part of a tie resembles the Christian cross too much. Muslims do the same, no ties especially in Muslim countries.

    Different cultures, different customs.

    Not hard to believe.

    In a lecture on New Testament, Amy Jill Levine recounted a cockamamie tale she told her child to explain away the Christian significance of the Cross atop a building on the campus where she taught, Emory University. Emory was founded by Methodist Episcopal Church. It's since become, um, less Christianish.

    Emory is also home to Deborah Lipstadt, Reality Denialist. ™

    If reincarnation exists, our Ron Unz has been in former life James Joyce or Dorothy Richardson. Karmic tendencies of stream-of-consciousness style of writing are so strong that he begins with Talmud & Kabbalah, then goes on to expulsions of Jews, usury, medical profession among Jews, Rabbinical nutjobs ..and then to Communists, Nazis, US Jewish ethno-nationalists, Kevin MacDonald, Solzhenitsyn & the rest. It is simply impossible to comment on all, or most of these topics.

    Generally, the author has correctly described, in Jungian terms, Jewish "shadow" or inner devil, i.e. sum of destructive & negative tendencies of this entity (we can perceive any collective as an entity, a sort of super-personality as depicted, with different aims, in Hobbes' "Leviathan").

    Where Unz is not fair, it is his reductionist view. He equates Jews with their (stereo)typical vices, which is the same mistake we make when we reduce a whole person to his loathsome traits, while ignoring laudable ones.

    I'll mostly c/p something I wrote before, with just a few extra points:

    1. except (perhaps ?) some fringe sects, Talmudic Judaism does not worship Satan. The claim is simply a monumental nonsense. It is a misunderstanding that is frequently attached to another Middle Eastern sect, Yazidis, and in their case it is also a sort of spiritual calumny & gross disinformation (in our Western world, Cathars had been accused of the same perversion). Esoteric meaning of the role of Satan is just disfigured by orthodox religious literalists.

    2. blood libel? Not convincing. As I've said before, it is true that human sacrifice had existed in virtually all archaic societies; it is also true that occult traditions frequently consider human blood as the most potent intensifier in acquisition of occult powers. Just, Judaism has gotten rid of human sacrifice long ago & there is no evidence that Jews (or Jewish occultists) had been practicing blood "potentiation" either in the first Christian millennium, or in Zoroastrian, Greek-Roman, Mesopotamian polytheistic & Islamic societies. Significantly enough, accusations of "blood libel" chronologically coincided with the rise of anti-Judaism in Western Europe & intensity of religious fervor we associate with Crusades. More, the claim that these rituals were, supposedly, uniform has not been corroborated. Even perfectly quotidian & normal Jewish religious practices significantly vary across time & place (Sephardim, Mizrahim, Ashkenazim,..).

    As far as Jewish ethnocentrism goes- it’s the cornerstone of their religion & identity (which has been formed from, roughly, 700 BC to 100 AD). It is not a reaction, but the very essence of self- definition of that ethno-religious group & culture. Judaism is an imaginative refurbishing of other Near Eastern religions; it does not possess its own mythology. Normative Judaism- unlike Kabbalah- is a Platonized religion in many respects similar to early Confucianism: life’s fulfillment is achieved through learning, study & mostly mental work- and not piety, nor supernatural yearnings. Early Judaism, as recorded in the Pentateuch, had not possessed that idea. Somewhere around 100-300 A.D. Jews adopted Plato’s ethic of self-cultivation through intellectual work & produced a vast literature- from contemporary perspective- of, generally, dated & sterile Behemoth nitpicking trivialities (Talmud, Responsa, ..). There are some problematic passages in the Talmud with regard to Gentiles & Christians. Babylonian Talmud was composed from ca. 200-600 AD; it has 6,500 big folio pages & its English translation runs over 15,000 pages. So- why not openly say there are a few insulting passages that reflect early medieval spirit of times? Talmud is a mixture of wisdom literature (similar to Confucian “Analects”), various superstitions on magic & astrology, exegeses on murky passages of Hebrew Bible (frequently fantastic & hilarious), and mostly a codification of Jewish law, similar to Islamic shariah (agriculture, marriage, various taboos & ceremonies, crimes & misdemeanors, food etc.)

    Christianity was mentioned only a few times in this library of books, almost always in negative light. Why not publicly say it’s obsolete in some areas? And that such fellows are, basically, freaks:

    https://youtu.be/M60FUPVtq9k


    With regard to Judaism's "ideological" spiritual arrogance, Shahak (and others) are right: their religious culture is essentially supremacist & there is no other spiritual tradition I know of that denies other people basically the same anthropological status in religious sense. In Kabbalah, which is esoteric extension of normative Judaism, only Jews possess divine portion of “soul”. Others do not.

    We know from different Gnostic religious traditions that they all aver there is split between empirical human psyche & essential, divine Self (Buddhata/Buddha Nature in Mahayana Buddhism, Atman in Vedanta Hinduism, Daimon or Nous in Greek religion, Inner Man and Christ Logos in (Neoplatonic) Christianity, Angel Christ in Christian Gnosticism, ruh/spirit and Perfect Nature in Hermetic variants of Islamic Sufism etc.). Only in Kabbalah & other variants of Judaism they deny that other humans are, basically, the same as they are. According to them, only Jews possess Neshamah (which is divine), or “upper layers” of Neshamah, like Chaya and Yechidah. Such religious arrogance & spiritual autism do not exist, as far as I know, anywhere else.

    For those interested in Jewish controversial topics, I would recommend Shahak's books (as a beginning), then Lindemann & Walter Laqueur:

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/517KDPU4gZL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    For a brief history & practice, Raynor & Goldberg (although they treat Pentateuch & Moses story as a proto-historical narrative):

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31Ki8ysRiRL._SX317_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    Much more comprehensive history is classic Simon Dubnov's monumental masterpiece.

    If you are interested in Kabbalah, then crucial works by Gerschom Scholem & Moshe Idel, for instance:

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41l1RXCsEeL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51ngcIV6RNL._SX341_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    For comparativist history of ideas, no one is better than Mircea Eliade:

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/412YQ%2BAqQwL._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41QEfmy0KQL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    Other topics (Nazism, Solzhenitsyn, Jewish role in Bolshevism & Hollywood,..) had been addressed elsewhere, and this post is already way too long ....

    Where Unz is not fair, it is his reductionist view. He equates Jews with their (stereo)typical vices, which is the same mistake we make when we reduce a whole person to his loathsome traits, while ignoring laudable ones.

    If someone’s “loathsome traits” are leading him to try to kill me and my family I’ll end him on the spot. All the (fake) stories about his beautiful singing voice and his shiny jew-fro won’t matter, believe it or not.

    Not to mention that this particular “person” tried it over and over again for two millennia and only grew more insidious after every non-lethal slap-down.

    Mr. Unz:

    All I can say is WOW! With this essay you've really let it all hang out and thrown down the gauntlet.

    I would ordinarily give zero or less as the political survival chances for anyone else writing anything like this. But somehow or other through earned wealth, political brazenness, or just plain unmitigated good fortune I feel/hope that you and the UR will both continue and prosper.

    Ron Unz’s balls are so big they have their own gravitational field.

    But he is technically Jewish, so he can only be labeled as a ‘self hating Jew’ and pitied accordingly, which is many times less trouble than being labeled an anti semite. For my money, I don’t think we’re going to see a particularly strong reaction. It’ll be easier for them to ignore it.

    Ron, as a Jew raised in the Reform tradition, I can't speak to the claims about Talmudic Judaism. But your claims that "our media pundits regularly identify Putin as 'the new Hitler'" seems largely untrue. A quick Google search on "the new Hitler" turns up only 70,000 results, links that refer mostly to Saddam Hussain, various Iranian leaders, and Trump. A search for "the new Hitler" and "Putin" turns up only 17,000 results and from what I can tell many of the linked stories criticize the formulation. Can you point to even two or three significant pundits who have called Putin "the new Hitler"?

    I'm also no expert on the subject of Hitler's economic policies, but I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing "the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies" is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It's true as far as it goes, but it doesn't go very far.

    As to all the claims about pre-modern Judaism, I can't say, but many of the practices and superstitions you cite don't seem very different from contemporaneous Christianity. And your dark musings on the lasting impact of the alleged centuries of inculcated "seething hatred" for Christians doesn't jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that's conspicuous in its absence.

    ““seething hatred” for Christians doesn’t jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that’s conspicuous in its absence.”

    That’s actually a survival strategy in an attempt to cleanup the diseased Jew gene pool.

    The wife usually ‘converts’, and the children are usually raised as ‘Jews’.

    And of course, very few Jew women look like ‘Wonderwoman’s’, Gal Godot.

    On Saturday I tried to tell a friend about who was Ron Unz and about his Weltanschauung evolution. Then on Sunday for reason now I do not remember I began to think of Bobby Fischer and his evolution that eventually lead to the asylum he got in Iceland. And I began to fear for Ron Unz's future and safety. Was he on a similar path?

    Several hours later this article was posted.

    who was Ron Unz and about his Weltanschauung evolution.

    Why the fifty cent motivation when a nickel will do the job?

    He’s just as likely to be doing this out of spite towards the Jews that drove him from and denied him any success in the MSM business. What’s the analogy for a Jew with money that loves to fondle and count words rejected by the media business. A 7 foot tall black American that can’t dribble?

    I have zero doubt this is his motivation. But that is not necessarily a bad motivation, and one cannot remain stuck in resentment and spite forever. Most anti semitism has personal causes. I too soured on Jews as a result of bad personal experiences. But then I dealt extensively with ambitious whites, and regained perspective lol.

    As one of the only groups in the West that are still highly ambitious and motivated, one is bound to encounter much bad behavior among Jews. Ambition breeds bad behavior - this was as true among renaissance Italians and 18th empire building Britons as it is among Jews today. I forget which British lord declared that one cannot be great without being bad. That man understood life.

    But as personal feelings fade and intelligent perspective is restored, as wider experience and reading acquaints one with the horrors of European history, the Jewish situation loses its uniqueness as it gets situated in the wider human context, and is seen as nothing special.

    This was an extraordinary article. Thank you, Ron Unz. Warning: you are being monitored, Ron, around the clock (of course you already know this).

    This just in:

    The International Coalition Against Anti-Semitsm and White Supremacy (ICAAWS) wants UNZ.com shut down and Ron Unz held responsible for the 'disturbing' rise in anti-Semitic hate crimes and unprovoked attacks upon innocent Jews around the world. It's reaching epidemic proportions!

    Actually, this hysterical malarkey is not exactly true. Ron's not facing any lawsuits or indictments (yet) and the organization above does not exist (at least as far as I know). But there are dozens of similar-sounding organizations which do. And they're deadly serious about "stopping the hate"--even in online discussions where Jewish conduct is criticized and where remarkable disclosures concerning Jewish history and 'beliefs' are revealed.

    Ron: You are trafficking in blood libels!

    This part is true: at this moment, scores of Jewish scholars, attorneys, lobbyists, activists, intellectuals, 'philanthropists', political experts and media operatives are working feverishly and cooperatively to impose limits on political speech and even draft legislation that will criminalize and eventually eradicate the global 'scourge' of anti-Semitism. This includes you, dear reader. You've got the disease!

    That's how the official story might read, anyway.

    But let's not kid ourselves. Jews do have a problem.

    No matter how collectively powerful, accomplished, secure, connected and wealthy they become, the chosen people are constantly aspiring for more. More!

    As the Torah instructs, they must 'rule the nations' (all of them).

    More land, more prestige, more wealth, more glory. Even more shiksas! (As Harvey W. knows).

    This unquenchable appetite of theirs invariably spills over and into neighboring cultures, populations and states. Jews may be small in number but their footprint is large. Very large. Thus 'anti-Semitism'. And to make matters worse, their 'religion' is a hodge-podge of macabre superstitions, outright satanism, and supreme self-worship. This makes them less-than-ideal neighbors.

    I can only imagine the intense interest and 'outrage' (one of their favorite words) felt by world's foremost deceivers, hypocrites, self-deceivers when they read an article like this, Mr. Unz. Like Shahak, you are telling the truth as you find it. And that makes them mad. Very mad.

    Don't you dare say that!

    Unvarnished disclosures can nourish 'anti-Semitism'! And mere truth is no defense.

    Jewish safety (and Jewish souls) are just too damn important. Kosher taboos must therefore be observed. And obeyed.

    This is why the chosen people have become the world's foremost censors. Unfettered discourse and unobstructed scholarship jeopardizes their precious Narrative (just as it threatens the official Holocaust yarn). So shut up. Free Speech has its limits.

    (((They))) will tell you just what those limits are once you've violated them. Be careful. Tread lightly.

    Indeed, I do recall seeing as small article about Toaff's provocative book (this was well over 20 years ago) in a local SF newspaper that indicated that "political pressures" forced its 'cancellation'.

    Decades earlier, a Japanese writer (whose name I do not recall) attempted to publish a book in Japan that posited the view that Jews controlled the Western world. This book too never saw the light of day. Even Japan (way over yonder) was brought to heel by the (((guardians of discourse))).

    And I also distinctly remember the article (and photo) that also appeared decades ago in the SF Chronicle which described the incident where revisionist historian, David Irving, was physically attacked in an auditorium at Cal Berkeley (home of America's 'legendary' Free Speech movement) for being a 'Nazi apologist'. Yet there was no public 'outrage' over the politically-driven, physical attack upon a scholar speaking in Berkeley. None.

    Irving 'deserved' it.

    The always-protesting Left had nothing to say (or if they did, it went unrecorded) about this frontal assault on intellectual freedom at Berkeley. Gee. Odd.

    The ACLU was AWOL. No professors came to Irving's defense. To quote a cliche adored by the vociferous Left: 'the silence was deafening'.

    And throughout the mainstream press at that time, there was no defense of Mr. Irving's right to discuss his book ('Hitler's War') at Berkeley; nor was there any kind of counter-protest at Berkeley to defend Irving's clear, constitutionally-guaranteed right to address an audience in an academic setting. None.

    What's wrong with this picture?

    And it happened at Berkeley.

    The totalitarian (((Left))) rules the academy as well as our news institutions. And that's not all.

    Thankfully, we now have a free and gloriously open internet. The marketplace of ideas has arrived.
    But I lived through an era when all we had was (((mainstream))) news and prime time entertainment. America was even more zombified then than now.

    Nevertheless, Americans still live under a soft occupation. We are allowed (encouraged) to get obnoxiously and deliriously excited over a football game. One may also champion this Democrat candidate over that Republican one (or visa-versa)-- but Americans are not really allowed to stray too far from the contrived 'center' of our culture's political 'center'. This violation of standards is what the 'far right' does. And it makes them 'extreme'.

    So America's political center has been given a loose definition. It includes the global security state, Zio-Washington's global military empire, our two-Party duopoly, Russia-phobia, Iran-phobia, Hamas-phobia, political protocols which undermine white cohesion, as well the 'unshakable' commitment to virtually all political objectives sought by the Zionist state.

    Sometimes reality is indeed stranger than fiction.

    Chicago’s legendary journalist Mike Royko had it right when he dubbed Mario Savio’s antics at Berkeley as the Foul Speech Movement. It continues long after his passing. I have to admit that I’m still digesting this rather long article, but I’m impressed at the dispassionate tone of it. And at the similar tone of the link to Kevin MacDonald’s essay. Usually, such articles are so phlegm-flecked that I have to look askance at them. MacDonald’s essay seems to provide a rationale for the seemingly irrational fear of Christian America–a very tolerant bunch–by most of the Jewish commentariat. To the point that they eagerly endorse mass immigration by overtly anti-Semitic Middle Ostogoths and probably anti-Semitic peasants from Los Culitos del Sur.

    Besides reiterating that we are all, gratefully, in Ron Unz’s debt, I’d just like to add – perhaps cynically – that I sure am glad I finished downloading Ron’s priceless collection of science-fiction and adventure pulps from the Internet Archive well before this essay’s appearance!

    I’d also made copies of many, though certainly not all, of the samizdat texts storehoused there. (And you had best believe I will be downloading whichever titles I’d missed the first time just as soon as I finish typing this comment.)

    Ron, a lot of people are going to tell you this took balls to write and post. And indisputably this is true. But what it really exhibits for all the world to see is intellectual integrity to match that courage. Unfortunately we live in an age when the highest order of both courage and integrity are found in the little boy who, seeing a naked emperor, describes reality as it is – not what an august company of VIPs would like it to be, let alone loudly insist that you’re actually seeing, except that you’re lying or crazy.

    So, while you’re still here, and the angry/shrill/bloodthirsty tweets of the Good and Great have yet to fill the air like virtual confetti….thank you for this.

    Ron Unz was born a Jew and brought up as a Jew, so he must have had personal experience with the Judaism and with real living Jews. Apparently he had never heard or witnessed any of the fantastic rituals he describes and apparently believes to be true, and no one told ever him that he must hate Christians. To whom should he believe, to his own eyes and ears, or the bobbe-maises (crazy stories) of self-hating Jew Shahak? Unz seems to have lost touch with his own self and with palpable reality.

    Ron Unz has shown a tremendous intellectual integrity and courage. But since this integrity and courage do not agree with certain politically correct dogmas, you found it convenient to overlook the exceptional personal qualia of Ron Unz.
    What about Hannah Arendt? Was she also too much on a side of western civilization instead of following blindly the Talmudic dictums?
    Have you heard about Baruch Spinoza? His remains are still outside of a Jewish cemetery. But your war criminals Yitzhak Shamir, Menachem Begin, and Ariel Sharon were buried, as the pious zionists, on a Jewish cemetery. Remember Shatila Massacre:

  122. ” … religious Jews apparently pray to Satan almost as readily as they pray to God …”

    A text within the Kabbalah known as Zohar instructs Jews to make sacrifices to Satan so that he’ll focus on the goyim and leave Israel alone, or something like that. The Gnostics believe that the Old Testament Yahweh is the demiurge, a satanic god (not the transcendent God) that traps and tortures human souls on Earth.

    “Even as late as the 1930s and afterward, international Zionist groups closely cooperated with the Third Reich on international economic projects … actually offered a military alliance to the Axis Powers …”

    There exists a conspiracy theory that the theosophy-inspired occult groups active in Austria and Germany in the 1910s and 1920s which gave rise to the Nazi cult and its Hitler-god were infiltrated by Zionist Kabbalists for the purpose of creating something like Nazism, a religious-political system that would be turned on European Jewry, thus creating a burnt offering to Yahweh; a sacrifice to enable the creation of Israel.

    ” … the detailed descriptions of the Jewish ritualistic murder practices are very similarly described in locations widely separated by geography, language, culture, and time period … ”

    And it is possible that these rituals share a common root: a supremacist death cult originating in ancient Babylon among the exile Jewish population from Judah.

    ” … the world is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine … ”

    Indeed it is. Reality as presented by materialists negates the soul, and diminishes both beauty and darkness. Imagination is the divine spark given to us by the transcendent God. The above article is a high point in the American Pravda series.

    First of all, I tip my hat to Ron Unz. He is looking satan straight in the eye and may god protect him.

    However, once again I find reading this article to be frustrating because of all the milquetoast language used to try to keep an article that must be offensive to lying Jews from being offensive to lying Jews. Example:

    “That extremely harsh accusation, widely used by stalwart defenders of Israeli behavior, refers to the notorious Christian superstition, prevalent throughout most of the Middle Ages and even into more modern times, that Jews sometimes kidnapped small Christian children in order to drain their blood for use in various magic rituals, especially in connection with the Purim religious holiday. One of my more shocking discoveries of the last dozen years is that there is a fairly strong likelihood that these seemingly impossible beliefs were actually true.”

    So after centuries of lies about their murder of Christian children when finally the proof hits Ron right between the eyes, he squirms around and wiggles out of clearly stating the depth of the depravity and damage that Jews have done to Christians for centuries. But even worse, Christians have been persecuted, ruined, tortured, and murdered for even implying that these massive jewish crimes are true. Jew crimes were simply projected back on the goyim, the goyim were punished and the jews got away. When has that ever happened before?

    ADL, SPLC, and all the other jewish hate organizations are nothing more that murderous cover up fronts for these crimes against humans with souls by jews, who clearly show by this practice that they are not of the same species as their victims. These goyim gaslighting organizations have been around for centuries twisting justice the same way jews twisted the dagger for years after stabbing Germany in the back in 1917.

    It is important to note, that just as jews call goyim anti-semite and ruin their lives or murder them for mentioning this jewish genetic lust for the ritual extraction of the blood of goyim infants, so exactly do they call goyim anti-semitic and ruin their lives or murder them for asking jews to provide evidence for 6 million dead Christian haters in the holohoax.

    Questions about the depth, depravity and history of jewish hate for goyim are one of the things that gods chosen people simply will not allow stupid goyim humans to ask. Its part of the Noahide laws that goyim across the west are forced to live under.

    Before Hugh of Lincoln (1255) was William of Norwich (1144).
    The Italian boy was Simone of Trento (known as Simonino di Trento), whose case was addressed by Ron commenting the 'scandal' provoked by the book of Prof. Ariel Toaff "Pasque di sangue" (Blood Passover). Simonino was beatified and his cult was extremely popular in Trento until 1965 when the Catholic hierarchy 'desanctified' him and forbade the public cult.
    The 'Syrian' was Father Thomas, a French citizen originally from Sardinia, and the superior of a Franciscan convent at Damascus who disappeared along with his servant in 1840. The "Damascus Affair" brought the massive intervention of European, British and American Jews in defense of the culprits. "For the first time in American Jewish life, Jews... organized themselves politically to help Diaspora Jewry in distress."
    "For the Jews, the Damascus affair launched modern Jewish politics on an international scale, and for American Jews it represented their first effort at creating a distinctive political agenda. Just as the United States had used this affair to proclaim its presence on the global scale, so too did American Jews, in their newspapers and at mass meetings, announce to their coreligionists in France and England that they too ought to be thought of players in global Jewish diplomacy."
    In the same year (1840) we have also the "Rhodes blood libel" resulting in the same intervention from Europe. Salomon Mayer von Rothschild from Austria, Sir Moses Montefiore from England and Adolphe Cremieux from France (the founder of the Alliance Israelite Universelle) took the lead in fighting the 'blood libel'

    Thanks very much for the information. I did spend a few minutes on the internet looking for dates and names.

    All I found of course was the evil blood libel and endless persecution of Jews by Christians and Popes. So I just posted what I remembered.

    Nevertheless, the cardinal Lorenzo Ganganelli, later Pope Clement XIV, in his famous report of 19 January 1760, presented to the Congregation of the Holy Office, with which he intended in general to absolve the Jews from the accusation of ritual infanticide, made an exception in the case of Andreas of Rinn, as well as in the case of the martyrdom of Simon of Trent. The two cases were to be considered exceptional events, not to be generalized, but were nevertheless concrete and real:29
    “I therefore admit as true the fact of the sainted Simon, the boy of three years of age killed by Jews in hatred of the faith of Jesus Christ in Trent in the year 1475 [...] I accept as true another crime, committed in the village of Rinn, diocese of Bressanone, in 1462, against the sainted Andrea, a boy barbarously killed by the Jews in hatred of the faith of Jesus Christ [...] I do not, however, believe, even admitting as true the true facts of Bressanone and Trent, that one can justifiably deduce that this is a maxim, either theoretical or practical, of the Hebrew nation,
    104
    since two events alone are insufficient to establish a certain and common axiom”.30

    In those days, Rabbi Jossel di Kelheim had taken advantage of an opportunity and had purchased a Christian child from a beggar for the price of ten ducats. He took the child to his house, in the Jewish quarter, where he concealed him for two days, in anticipation of the solemn event of the Pesach, the feast of the unleavened bread, when the annual celebrations begin in remembrance of the miraculous escape of the people of Israel from captivity in Egypt would begin. In the early morning of the first day of the holiday period, Rabbi Jossel very carefully transferred the boy into the narrow confines of the “stiebel” [parlor] of Sayer Straubinger, the small and rustic synagogue located a short distance from his house, where he was accustomed to preside over the collective rites of the community and its daily and festive liturgical meetings. Awaiting him were at least twenty five Jews, previously informed of the extraordinary event. Israel Wolfgang was one of them, and he remembered the exact names of all the participants in the rite, both those from Regensburg and those from other regions. The transfer of the child from Rabbi Jossel’s house to the synagogue, although performed at night, involved some danger, since it might have been noticed by prying eyes. But in view of the fact that the district was inhabited by Jews who locked their doors every night, with the keys entrusted to them by the city authorities, the margin of safety was considered sufficiently broad.19
    The boy was undressed in the stiebel and placed on a chest containing the sacred parchments of the synagogue, and was then crucified, circumcised and finally suffocated over the course of a horrifying collective ritual, following a script accurately planned and perfectly well known by all the participants, by Jessel, the rabbi; by
    121
    Mayr Baumann, the mohel; by Sayer Straubinger, the owner of the chapel; by Samuel Flieshaker, one of Wolfgang’s friends; by Mayr Heller; by the above mentioned Jew referred to as “bonus puer” (Tov ’Elem); by Johoshua, the cantor; and by Isacco, the water-bearer. Wolfgang himself had taken an active part in the crucifixion of the child, while the blood was collected in a bowl, to be distributed among the Jews participating in the rite or sent to the rich of the community.20 The day after, rumor of the ritual infanticide spread in the district and many people rushed to Sayer’s stiebel to see the body of the sacrificed boy, which was placed quite visibly inside the chest. The evening after, at the beginning of the ceremonies of the second day of Pesach, in the central room of the small synagogue, in the confined space of which about thirty of the faithful now crammed themselves, excited and curious, while the little victim was publicly exhibited, and the grisly ritual, which had now become merely commemorative, began afresh.21 Finally, the child’s body was buried in the courtyard of the chapel, in a remote corner, surrounded by a wall, accessed through a small door which was usually kept locked.22
    Israel Wolfgang’s report was too precise in its particulars and accurate in its descriptions to avoid awakening the interest of inquisitors in places other than Trent. His report contained exact names, dates, places, and facts requiring cogent verification. Perhaps the closest and most significant precedent to Simonino’s martyrdom at Trent was to be sought at Regensburg: in the spectacular story of an unknown synagogue ceremony according to ritual standards following a pre-established order with a mysterious symbolism. The first night of Pesach at Regensburg in 1467, in Sayer’s stiebel, from which the noisy flow of the waters of the Danube was quite audible, might provide a clue to the mystery of what really happened eight years later, during the Pesach period of 1475, at Samuele da Nuremberg’s house, in the small synagogue of the Jews of Trent, located along a small murky canal used by tanners in the German-speaking district. Perhaps they were only fantasies, fearful fables, nourished by ancestral suspicions, settled stereotypes crystallized from years back; but the authorities had to be certain that the tale had no basis in truth.
    In early 1476, Heinrich, the bishop of Regensburg was passing through Trent on his way back from Rome, when, suddenly, someone handed him a copy of Wolfgang’s deposition before the Trent judges. Notwithstanding circumstances of this kind, it would hardly have been unprecedented, in the 15th century panorama of this city on the Danube, for the Jews of Regensburg to be accused of a good four cases of desecration of the Host and ritual murder in barely six years, from
    122
    1470 to 1476;23 the good prelate was forcefully impressed and justifiably scandalized when he read the document. Returning to Germany, Heinrich hastened to advise the authorities of Regensburg to open an immediate inquiry intended to determine whether or not a ritual murder had really occurred in the Jewish quarter during the Passover feast of 1467.2




    CHAPTER TWELVE
    THE MEMORIAL OF THE PASSION
    The use of the blood of Christian children in the celebration of the Jewish Passover was apparently the object of minute regulation, at least according to the depositions of all the defendants in the Trent trials. These depositions describe exactly what was prohibited, what was permitted, and what was tolerated, all in meticulous detail. Every eventuality was foreseen and dealt with; the use of blood was governed by broad and exhaustive case law, almost as if it formed an integral part of the most firmly established regulations relating to the ritual. The blood, powdered or dessicated, was mixed into the dough of the unleavened or “solemn” bread, the shimmurim – not ordinary bread. The shimmurim – in fact, three loaves for each of the two evenings during which the ritual dinner of the Seder was served – were considered one of the principal symbolic foods of the feast, and their accurate preparation and baking took place during the days preceding the advent of Pesach.
    During the Seder, the blood had to be dissolved into the wine immediately prior to recitation of the ten curses against the land of Egypt. The wine was later poured into a basin or a cracked earthenware pot and thrown away. The performance of the ritual required only a minimum quantity of blood in powdered form, equal in quantity to a lentil.
    The obligation to procure blood and to use it during the Passover ritual was the exclusive responsibility of the head of the family, i.e., a responsible male with a dependent wife and children. Bachelors, widowers, guests and employees, all those without dependent family, were exempt. In view of the difficulty of procuring such a rare and costly ingredient, it was anticipated that the wealthiest Jews would provide blood for the poorest Jews, an eccentric form of charity benefiting heads of families disinherited by fate.
    Samuele da Nuremberg reported that:
    “The evening before Pesach, when they stir the dough with which the unleavened bread (the shimmurim) is later prepared, the head of the family takes the blood of a Christian child and mixes it into the dough while it is being kneaded, using the entire quantity available, keeping in
    260
    mind that the measure of a lentil is sufficient. The head of the family sometimes performs this operation in the presence of those kneading the unleavened bread, and sometimes without their knowledge, based on whether or not they can be trusted”.1
    Maestro Tobias restricted himself to recalling that “every year, the blood, in powdered form, is kneaded into the dough of the unleavened bread prepared the evening before the feast, and is then eaten on the solemn day, i.e., the day of Passover”.2 This testimony was confirmed by Mohar (Meir), the son of Mosè “the old Man” of Würzburg,3 as well as by the convert Giovanni da Feltre, who had seen his father Schochat (Sacheto) perform the ritual while still living at Landshut in Bavaria.4
    Isacco da Gridel, Angelo da Verona’s cook, admitted to kneading the shimmurim containing blood for eight years, preparing it for the celebration of the Seder. Joav of Franconia, Tobias’ domestic servant, recalled the custom from as much as seventeen years back, when she was in service with a rich Jew from Würzburg. Mosè da Bamburg, the traveler staying with Angelo of Verona, in his long deposition, stated that he had personally performed this operation when he was head of the family in Germany. Later, when he moved to Italy, he had seen it performed at Borgo San Giovanni, in the Piacenza region, in the home of money lender Sacle or Sacla (Izchak), who inserted the blood into the unleavened bread while his wife Potina kneaded the dough. Vitale, Samuele da Nuremberg’s agent, attested to the custom as a result of having seen it performed for three consecutive years by his uncle, Salomone, at Monza.
    The subject matter of these depositions was also confirmed by the women involved. Bella, the wife of Mayer da Würzburg, reported that she had seen her father preparing the shimmurim from the time she was a child at Nuremberg, in preparation for the first two evenings during which the Seder used grains of dried blood in the dough. Sara, Tobias’s wife, recalled that her first husband, Elia, whom she married at Marburg, had used blood for this purpose, and that she had also seen the practice in many Jewish homes in Mestre.5 Bona, Angelo da Verona’s sister, stated that she had seen the brother placing the [dried] blood, [dissolved and] diluted in water, into the dough of the unleavened and so-called solemn bread, the shimmurim, which was kept under surveillance, and had to be eaten during the first two evenings of the festival, during the Seder. “Angelo himself, took a bit of the Christian child’s [dried] blood and dissolved it in water, then poured the water containing the blood into the dough with which they then made the unleavened loaves, three of which Angelo and the other members of his family and Bona herself ate during the Passover
    261
    evening feast, while the other three members ate it the evening of the next day”.6
    Angelo da Verona’s report was rather more detailed. After briefly recalling that the Ashkenazi Jews “take a small quantity of the blood and they put it in the dough with which they later make the unleavened bread which they eat during the solemn days of the Passover”.
    He went on to provide a detailed description of the rite of preparing the shimmurim “with blood”.7 First of all, he explained to the judges, the ritual action was carried out “as a sign of outrage against Jesus Christ, whom the Christians claim is their God”. He then continued, supplying whatever clarification he considered dutiful and necessary: “Eating unleavened bread with Christian blood in it means that, just as the body and powers of Jesus Christ, the God of the Christians, went down to perdition with His death, thus, the Christian blood contained in the unleavened bread shall be ingested and completely consumed”.
    How much truth there was to this key anti-Christian interpretation of the presumed Jewish haematophagia [blood-eating] through the medium of unleavened bread, and just how much was invented to please the inquisitors concerned, is unknown. It is however a fact that Angelo supplied a very colorful and credible representation of the ritual, utilizing the correct formulae from the classical Jewish liturgy.
    “They place the blood in their unleavened loaves in this manner: after placing the blood in the dough, they knead it and stir it around to prepare the unleavened bread (the shimmurim). Then they poke holes in it, pronouncing these words: Chen icheressù chol hoyveha, which, translated, means ‘Thus may our enemies be consumed’. At this point, the unleavened loaves are ready to be eaten”.8
    This Hebrew invective is not an invention. It may in fact be found among the blessings and curses pronounced during the so-called “Haggadah of the Jewish New Year” (Rosh Ha-Shanah) just before the feast dinner. On this occasion, the reading of the various formulae was accompanied by the consumption of vegetables and fruit, in addition to fish and a lamb’s head, recalling, by means of a pun on their Hebrew names, the type of blessing or curse which the reader intended to pronounce. Leeks are called cartì, and the invective associated with its name was known as she-iccaretu (iccaresu in the Ashkenazi pronunciation) col hoyevenu, that is, “may all our enemies be exterminated (“consumed” according to Angelo)”.9 The original inspiration was, as usual, Biblical and prophetical (Mich. 5:9) “And all thine enemies shall be cut off” (we-chos hoyevecha iccaretu). At this point, it becomes much more difficult to dismiss the insertion of these
    262
    Hebrew-language execrations into the ritual of the Christian blood added to the solemn unleavened bread as merely the extemporaneous and extravagant invention of Angelo da Verona, “softened up” with torture.

    Lol, a short while ago I would have agreed with this article.

    But the truth is simply that the whole world is always at war, all groups constantly war against each other.

    The fact that Jews were kicked out of every country is trotted out as some highly significant fact pointing to the uniquely anti social character of Jewish culture, and I myself viewed it this way not too long ago - but every European country has been at constant and unceasing war for all of its history, and Asian victims of European aggression have found something uniquely anti social in European culture.

    England, France, Italy, Spain, Germany - constant war. This is no different than Jews being constantly at war with every society among which they settle.

    It seems to be the law of this world that every group with a distinct identity wages war against every other group to the extent of its power and ability.

    Jews use cunning and deceit and money to wage war - Europeans tend to find this uniquely abhorrent, much preferring their own method of war which is physical strength and brutality, but I can find no reason why a physically stronger person has more of a "right" to impose his will on others than the cunning person.

    Jews are remarkably clear headed about this - I have had Jews tell me that Jews cheat, but gentiles murder, and this is what one should watch out for in dealing with the two groups. History bears this out - but in truth, the roles could beeasily reversed under the right circumstances, as a weapon is dictated by the situation.

    Each group uses its own distinct weapons, and views the weapons of other groups as uniquely "dishonorable". But this is a part of the human comedy.

    Jewish contempt and animosity for non Jews is very real and one can find any number of quotes in Jewish sacred scriptures which bear this out - but Jewish universalism and even respect and appreciation for goyim (!) is equally real and an important strain in Jewish culture, eschatology, and theory of this world and the end of days.

    Like any pre modern culture, Jewish culture is complex, multi-faceted, and contradictory - a rigid, simplistic mentality of the kind produced by the excessive study of mathematics, science, or computer science is ill equipped to make heads or tails of a way of thought that is fundamentally richer and more complex and equivocal than the rigid simplicities of modernity, with its anxiety-based yearning for simple facts to anchor itself onto in a shifting quicksand world.

    It would be interesting to contrast the anti social passages of Judaism with those of Christianity or other groups - for Christians, all others suffer eternal torments for not believing what they believe. Even Jews agree that righteous gentiles go to heaven.

    It is all part of the human comedy - minds that are able to gain the larger perspective and soar high above the petty entanglements of group identity and self interest can look down on these skirmishes, engagements, and battles with each group vying for position, trying to paint its rival as uniquely capable of acts it itself commits daily, can look down on these things from the perspective of eternity and smile a bit.

    But there are few such minds - and nothing is more exciting to most people than to do spend their lives in jockeying for some minor advantage over some rival group.

    The one good point about this article is that Jews are indeed the enemy of every group they settle among, at least potentially, just as the English nation spent its history as a nation (now ending) in endless warfare against enemies near and far, against close neighbors and distant Asiatic kingdoms, according to the ancient law of group against group, individual against individual.

    The correct way to view the attempt to find Jewish culture uniquely anti social by Europeans is as merely another skirmish in the war of groups, and as an attempt by Europeans to gain advantage over their rivals.

    Of course, there is a way to escape this war of all against all, but in each generation only few succeed in doing so - ultimately, I hope, everyone will, as the cycle of reincarnation continues, and each individual advances up the rungs.

    Jews are remarkably clear headed about this – I have had Jews tell me that Jews cheat, but gentiles murder, and this is what one should watch out for in dealing with the two groups.

    That’s hardly clear headed. It basically means that the Gentiles should be fought only when then start a war against you while the Tribe is “cheating” and scheming goyim demise 24/7/365.

    How’s that Jewish IQ number progressing anyway? 95 sound wildly optimistic at this point.

    No, it means the gentiles are always starting a war against someone (historically indisputable). And that Jews are always at war with someone. (Historically indisputable). But that both deploy different weapons, according to his capacity and circumstances.

    The clear headed and honest person - .0001 of mankind - recognizes these facts objectively without getting hysterical about them.

    Europeans fight each other incessantly, conquer most of the world - then complain that Jews used cunning, deceit, and the power of money to gain the upper hand over Europeans.

    It's really quite childish.

    So cheating and scheming are uniquely bad while "honest" physical aggression that kills millions and lays waste to half the earth is "honorable" - its childish.

    The clear headed philosopher understands that the biological world is a war of all against wall, and that cheating is quite as legitimate as physical violence in this war.

    Of course, being a clear headed philosopher means seeing at least one level up from the biological realm - and those stuck in the biological conflict can only see "their side" and cannot attain to objectivity.

    So I hardly expect you to see things from a larger perspective beyond "your side" - nor would it be healthy for you, so long as you are stuck in the biological combat of all against all.

    But there are a tiny few who are poised to tip over into the blissful "extra biological" perspective - I write for this happy few, and do not expect people like you to understand me.

  128. With all due respect, I can but disagree on several points.

    First, the author may be right about Jewish religion (I know next to nothing about it), but many secular Jews who break religious rules daily, support Israel and do their best to make its crimes look innocent. Many Jews and Gentiles, both religious and secular, present these crimes as non-crimes, simply because they are perpetrated against Palestinians.

    Second, Russia in the 1990s. Yes, it was a catastrophe, wholesale looting of the country by the few who had no ethical scruples. Most oligarchs were not just thieves, but murderers as well, although, just like mafia bosses, they did not do murders personally, always delegating dirty work to henchmen. A typical example is Khodorkovsky, promoted by the Western media: it is almost certain that he ordered his head of security, Alexei Pichugin, to arrange the 1998 murder of Vladimir Petukhov, mayor of Nefteyugansk, which was done on Khodorkovsky’s birthday. Pichugin was sentenced in Russia to life in prison for ordering three murders, including Petukhov’s. While Khodorkovsky is Jewish (secular, as far as we can tell), Pichugin is not. What’s more, Gorbachev and Yeltsin, who brought Russia almost to ruin, aren’t Jewish, either. Both of them are rightly perceived by the majority of Russian population as traitors, which they are.

    Third, Solzhenitsyn. In the context of Russian literature, he is third-rate at best. His literary talent is nowhere near that of the towering figures like Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Gogol, or Pushkin. If we stick solely to the twentieth century and even exclude Tolstoy, Solzhenitsyn is nowhere near Bulgakov, Blok, and many others. The most adequate prescient description of him one can find in Dostoevsky’s Demons: it is hard to be a middling talent in Russian literature. Politically, he is also a very shady character. He claimed to have wanted to go to the front, which was the easiest thing to achieve in the USSR between 1941 and 1945, yet he always moved farther and farther away from the places where bullets and shells actually flied. He was imprisoned, but spent his time in VIP camps, not where rank-and-file GULAG prisoners were. If one wants to read a true account of GULAG, I can recommend Shalamov (who, BTW, always despised Solzhenitsyn as a liar and a fraud).

    Finally, the crazy world we know today was shaped by a lot of scoundrels, some Jewish, some not. Just recent examples: Clintons (both of them) and Bushes (all of them) weren’t Jewish, but they have a lot of innocent blood on their hands. Same goes for Blair, Cheney, and many others. I believe that the criminals should be identified and ultimately punished, or at least condemned. I also believe pointing the finger at particular groups, religious or national, is no more than a red herring. Frankly, I am surprised and disappointed that Ron Unz, who runs a remarkably truthful site with real freedom of speech and true difference of opinion, is contributing to that deception.

    You mean the "deception" you have failed to substantiate?

    As if pointing out a few shabbas goys and not their handlers is somehow credible.

    Who cares if Solzhenitsyn was a great literary master. It's what he said that matters, not how he said it.

    I sense you may be one of the little helpers:

    @academic gossip
    Ron,

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch's analysis that appeared to refute your article's claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch's did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?

    Ms. Baytch took it upon herself to correct me, inter alia, at the very beginning of the comment thread to one of Mr. Unz’ many other postings here having to do with his meritocracy research:

    http://www.unz.com/runz/asian-quotas-in-the-ivy-league-we-see-nothing/

    As pointed out by me to Ms. Baytch, in our extensive replies to one another in that particular comment thread, the “Harvard Crimson” survey findings that she cites are (along with their being social-scientifically dubious per se) about incoming freshmen’s religious affiliations, not their ethnic descent or identity. My Jewish brother-in-law, who was an Harvard undergraduate at the same time as Mr. Unz, is deeply into his Jewish identity; but, he also is an avowed atheist, despite his being formally bar mitzvahed as an adolescent, and he never would have claimed to be “Jewish” in the actual sense that that survey was asking of its respondents. I strongly suspect that a majority of the freshman at Harvard who identify as being Jewish, ethnically and socioculturally, would not claim that Judaism was their personal religious faith, whether they were being asked the question by their student newspaper or by the United States Bureau of the Census.

    Government agencies (including the US Census Bureau) are prohibited from asking questions about Jewishness and/or Jewish ancestry. Jews are not allowed to be counted or monitored in the US. They are a special if not protected class in this regard. (Surprised?)

    Only Jewish groups seem to know exactly who is Jewish and what the numbers of Jews (or 'part Jews') exist in America.

    Since Jews are not like other ethnic or racial groups in the way that they are counted and/or identified, there may be millions of quasi-Jewish gentiles (individuals with some Jewish heritage) as well as others who possess a strong religious identification with Israel and/or Jewish teachings.

    Their precise numbers are unknown and will probably remain so.

    I suspect however that there are far more crypto-Jews out there than is commonly acknowledged by many 'experts'.

    Deception is a big part of their modus operandi. The nebulous but tightly-organized 'Jewish community' in America shares hard data about itself only when it suits them.

    If reincarnation exists, our Ron Unz has been in former life James Joyce or Dorothy Richardson. Karmic tendencies of stream-of-consciousness style of writing are so strong that he begins with Talmud & Kabbalah, then goes on to expulsions of Jews, usury, medical profession among Jews, Rabbinical nutjobs ..and then to Communists, Nazis, US Jewish ethno-nationalists, Kevin MacDonald, Solzhenitsyn & the rest. It is simply impossible to comment on all, or most of these topics.

    Generally, the author has correctly described, in Jungian terms, Jewish "shadow" or inner devil, i.e. sum of destructive & negative tendencies of this entity (we can perceive any collective as an entity, a sort of super-personality as depicted, with different aims, in Hobbes' "Leviathan").

    Where Unz is not fair, it is his reductionist view. He equates Jews with their (stereo)typical vices, which is the same mistake we make when we reduce a whole person to his loathsome traits, while ignoring laudable ones.

    I'll mostly c/p something I wrote before, with just a few extra points:

    1. except (perhaps ?) some fringe sects, Talmudic Judaism does not worship Satan. The claim is simply a monumental nonsense. It is a misunderstanding that is frequently attached to another Middle Eastern sect, Yazidis, and in their case it is also a sort of spiritual calumny & gross disinformation (in our Western world, Cathars had been accused of the same perversion). Esoteric meaning of the role of Satan is just disfigured by orthodox religious literalists.

    2. blood libel? Not convincing. As I've said before, it is true that human sacrifice had existed in virtually all archaic societies; it is also true that occult traditions frequently consider human blood as the most potent intensifier in acquisition of occult powers. Just, Judaism has gotten rid of human sacrifice long ago & there is no evidence that Jews (or Jewish occultists) had been practicing blood "potentiation" either in the first Christian millennium, or in Zoroastrian, Greek-Roman, Mesopotamian polytheistic & Islamic societies. Significantly enough, accusations of "blood libel" chronologically coincided with the rise of anti-Judaism in Western Europe & intensity of religious fervor we associate with Crusades. More, the claim that these rituals were, supposedly, uniform has not been corroborated. Even perfectly quotidian & normal Jewish religious practices significantly vary across time & place (Sephardim, Mizrahim, Ashkenazim,..).

    As far as Jewish ethnocentrism goes- it’s the cornerstone of their religion & identity (which has been formed from, roughly, 700 BC to 100 AD). It is not a reaction, but the very essence of self- definition of that ethno-religious group & culture. Judaism is an imaginative refurbishing of other Near Eastern religions; it does not possess its own mythology. Normative Judaism- unlike Kabbalah- is a Platonized religion in many respects similar to early Confucianism: life’s fulfillment is achieved through learning, study & mostly mental work- and not piety, nor supernatural yearnings. Early Judaism, as recorded in the Pentateuch, had not possessed that idea. Somewhere around 100-300 A.D. Jews adopted Plato’s ethic of self-cultivation through intellectual work & produced a vast literature- from contemporary perspective- of, generally, dated & sterile Behemoth nitpicking trivialities (Talmud, Responsa, ..). There are some problematic passages in the Talmud with regard to Gentiles & Christians. Babylonian Talmud was composed from ca. 200-600 AD; it has 6,500 big folio pages & its English translation runs over 15,000 pages. So- why not openly say there are a few insulting passages that reflect early medieval spirit of times? Talmud is a mixture of wisdom literature (similar to Confucian “Analects”), various superstitions on magic & astrology, exegeses on murky passages of Hebrew Bible (frequently fantastic & hilarious), and mostly a codification of Jewish law, similar to Islamic shariah (agriculture, marriage, various taboos & ceremonies, crimes & misdemeanors, food etc.)

    Christianity was mentioned only a few times in this library of books, almost always in negative light. Why not publicly say it’s obsolete in some areas? And that such fellows are, basically, freaks:

    https://youtu.be/M60FUPVtq9k


    With regard to Judaism's "ideological" spiritual arrogance, Shahak (and others) are right: their religious culture is essentially supremacist & there is no other spiritual tradition I know of that denies other people basically the same anthropological status in religious sense. In Kabbalah, which is esoteric extension of normative Judaism, only Jews possess divine portion of “soul”. Others do not.

    We know from different Gnostic religious traditions that they all aver there is split between empirical human psyche & essential, divine Self (Buddhata/Buddha Nature in Mahayana Buddhism, Atman in Vedanta Hinduism, Daimon or Nous in Greek religion, Inner Man and Christ Logos in (Neoplatonic) Christianity, Angel Christ in Christian Gnosticism, ruh/spirit and Perfect Nature in Hermetic variants of Islamic Sufism etc.). Only in Kabbalah & other variants of Judaism they deny that other humans are, basically, the same as they are. According to them, only Jews possess Neshamah (which is divine), or “upper layers” of Neshamah, like Chaya and Yechidah. Such religious arrogance & spiritual autism do not exist, as far as I know, anywhere else.

    For those interested in Jewish controversial topics, I would recommend Shahak's books (as a beginning), then Lindemann & Walter Laqueur:

    Other topics (Nazism, Solzhenitsyn, Jewish role in Bolshevism & Hollywood,..) had been addressed elsewhere, and this post is already way too long ....

    Where Unz is not fair, it is his reductionist view. He equates Jews with their (stereo)typical vices, which is the same mistake we make when we reduce a whole person to his loathsome traits, while ignoring laudable ones.

    In the 21st century world of internet discourse one thing I’ve internalized is the “crazy bomb”. There are some subjects, so fraught, that everyone is “triggered”.

    I think that’s a big problem. To be triggered should be: to be disqualified from discourse of any consequence. I sincerely believe that. If I could put one limit on democracy, that would be my limit: does anything trigger you? … ok, then kindly go outside while the adults discuss serious matters, matters of consequence.

    So what do we do when there are subjects that trigger: everyone? 90%, suffices, for “everyone”.

    I’ve spent much of the last 18 hours wondering if I can ever post a comment on Unz again – not because of the substance of what Mr. Unz wrote – though there’s much to doubt and disagree with and I think that a charitable interpretation is that, that’s his point: to un-trigger us by forcing the triggering discussion.

    But the reason I’ve wondered is: crazy bomb. Mr. Unz just dropped the most high-power crazy bomb I’ve seen maybe in my lifetime’s memory. Everyone will be triggered. Anti-Semites, “allergic” gentiles, and certainly Jews. Everyone.

    Is discussion possible?

    There is the story of the boy and the dinosaur – who found a dinosaur in his bedroom and his parents refused to discuss it because: dinosaurs don’t exist – and they remained steadfast in their refusal until the dinosaur’s limbs grew out the windows and legs through the floors and he walked off with the house.
    Charitable interpretation: Unz is trying to get us to discuss the dinosaur

    There is Howard W. Campbell Jr. A possibility that should terrify the bonafide anti-Semites who find a commenting home here. Another charitable interpretation.

    And after we clear the crazy bomb and charitable interpretations, there’s finally your point. I’d like a word about that, and I worry it’s a word spoken in the dust cloud on the bottom floor of a building a quarter second after a bomb detonated in the basement and the upper floors are about to collapse on us.

    But here’s the word.

    It is said that the first crime is that one must not “name the Jew”. You are supposed to figure this out. Everyone is supposed to figure this out. It is a symptom of autism that one does not figure this out.

    Because we will not discuss this many who do figure it out derive different conclusions about why this is a rule.

    I would like to suggest to your point, and to Mr. Unz, that the most charitable reason for this rule is the true reason, and more importantly : it is a universal reason.

    One must not “name the Jew” for the same reason one must not name : anyone – collectively.

    That reason is: we are human, or cartoons. All acts of collective naming – reduce us from humans, to cartoons.

    This is why I have argued consistently , on these comments, that people must stop adopting the term “white”. To adopt and accept this term, is to agree to be named, and to be named by people who know exactly what they are doing when they name you. They dehumanize you. They make it possible to collectively judge you and condemn you. By accepting the name, you hasten the advance of their heinous agenda.

    And “they”, don’t need to be anybody at all. No Protocols are required, just Hobbes and Game Theory. It’s a war of man against man.

    Unz is unfair here – dangerously so – but if this was intended as a light to lead us out of the darkness then it starts with this rule: let us stop naming … anyone. Collective judgment will be all of our collective doom.

    Not being an American & not having a stake in the game, I agree & disagree with some points.

    First, I agree with Spinoza that in a free society a man speaks what he thinks, and thinks whatever he wants. Some will be offended, but it is the price of liberty. No "hate speech", no muzzle... I'm allergic to it.

    Then, it is true that all stereotypes tend to become cartoons. As Orwell observed, the fact that Chinese are gamblers & English- hypocrites, tells us something about these collectives. Social & humanist "sciences" like sociology, cultural anthropology, historiography, social psychology, ethnopsychology, cultural history....try to analyze & describe group stereotypes rationally & empirically.

    Ron Unz, on the other hand, as far as his pubic persona is concerned, is a journalist & socio-political commentator with ambition to make it in a wider society & media. He's, like most Americans, a doer, not a thinker & he doesn't care about historical or philosophical abstractions. He wants to provoke, but also to see what the world is really like.

    In other words- ruin the sacred truths. I may agree or disagree with some of his contentions, but I'm all for freedom & open discourse. Staleness & orthodoxies are signs of decrepitude & weakness.

    Thanks very much for the information. I did spend a few minutes on the internet looking for dates and names.

    All I found of course was the evil blood libel and endless persecution of Jews by Christians and Popes. So I just posted what I remembered.

    Nevertheless, the cardinal Lorenzo Ganganelli, later Pope Clement XIV, in his famous report of 19 January 1760, presented to the Congregation of the Holy Office, with which he intended in general to absolve the Jews from the accusation of ritual infanticide, made an exception in the case of Andreas of Rinn, as well as in the case of the martyrdom of Simon of Trent. The two cases were to be considered exceptional events, not to be generalized, but were nevertheless concrete and real:29
    “I therefore admit as true the fact of the sainted Simon, the boy of three years of age killed by Jews in hatred of the faith of Jesus Christ in Trent in the year 1475 [...] I accept as true another crime, committed in the village of Rinn, diocese of Bressanone, in 1462, against the sainted Andrea, a boy barbarously killed by the Jews in hatred of the faith of Jesus Christ [...] I do not, however, believe, even admitting as true the true facts of Bressanone and Trent, that one can justifiably deduce that this is a maxim, either theoretical or practical, of the Hebrew nation,
    104
    since two events alone are insufficient to establish a certain and common axiom”.30

    [MORE]

    In those days, Rabbi Jossel di Kelheim had taken advantage of an opportunity and had purchased a Christian child from a beggar for the price of ten ducats. He took the child to his house, in the Jewish quarter, where he concealed him for two days, in anticipation of the solemn event of the Pesach, the feast of the unleavened bread, when the annual celebrations begin in remembrance of the miraculous escape of the people of Israel from captivity in Egypt would begin. In the early morning of the first day of the holiday period, Rabbi Jossel very carefully transferred the boy into the narrow confines of the “stiebel” [parlor] of Sayer Straubinger, the small and rustic synagogue located a short distance from his house, where he was accustomed to preside over the collective rites of the community and its daily and festive liturgical meetings. Awaiting him were at least twenty five Jews, previously informed of the extraordinary event. Israel Wolfgang was one of them, and he remembered the exact names of all the participants in the rite, both those from Regensburg and those from other regions. The transfer of the child from Rabbi Jossel’s house to the synagogue, although performed at night, involved some danger, since it might have been noticed by prying eyes. But in view of the fact that the district was inhabited by Jews who locked their doors every night, with the keys entrusted to them by the city authorities, the margin of safety was considered sufficiently broad.19
    The boy was undressed in the stiebel and placed on a chest containing the sacred parchments of the synagogue, and was then crucified, circumcised and finally suffocated over the course of a horrifying collective ritual, following a script accurately planned and perfectly well known by all the participants, by Jessel, the rabbi; by
    121
    Mayr Baumann, the mohel; by Sayer Straubinger, the owner of the chapel; by Samuel Flieshaker, one of Wolfgang’s friends; by Mayr Heller; by the above mentioned Jew referred to as “bonus puer” (Tov ’Elem); by Johoshua, the cantor; and by Isacco, the water-bearer. Wolfgang himself had taken an active part in the crucifixion of the child, while the blood was collected in a bowl, to be distributed among the Jews participating in the rite or sent to the rich of the community.20 The day after, rumor of the ritual infanticide spread in the district and many people rushed to Sayer’s stiebel to see the body of the sacrificed boy, which was placed quite visibly inside the chest. The evening after, at the beginning of the ceremonies of the second day of Pesach, in the central room of the small synagogue, in the confined space of which about thirty of the faithful now crammed themselves, excited and curious, while the little victim was publicly exhibited, and the grisly ritual, which had now become merely commemorative, began afresh.21 Finally, the child’s body was buried in the courtyard of the chapel, in a remote corner, surrounded by a wall, accessed through a small door which was usually kept locked.22
    Israel Wolfgang’s report was too precise in its particulars and accurate in its descriptions to avoid awakening the interest of inquisitors in places other than Trent. His report contained exact names, dates, places, and facts requiring cogent verification. Perhaps the closest and most significant precedent to Simonino’s martyrdom at Trent was to be sought at Regensburg: in the spectacular story of an unknown synagogue ceremony according to ritual standards following a pre-established order with a mysterious symbolism. The first night of Pesach at Regensburg in 1467, in Sayer’s stiebel, from which the noisy flow of the waters of the Danube was quite audible, might provide a clue to the mystery of what really happened eight years later, during the Pesach period of 1475, at Samuele da Nuremberg’s house, in the small synagogue of the Jews of Trent, located along a small murky canal used by tanners in the German-speaking district. Perhaps they were only fantasies, fearful fables, nourished by ancestral suspicions, settled stereotypes crystallized from years back; but the authorities had to be certain that the tale had no basis in truth.
    In early 1476, Heinrich, the bishop of Regensburg was passing through Trent on his way back from Rome, when, suddenly, someone handed him a copy of Wolfgang’s deposition before the Trent judges. Notwithstanding circumstances of this kind, it would hardly have been unprecedented, in the 15th century panorama of this city on the Danube, for the Jews of Regensburg to be accused of a good four cases of desecration of the Host and ritual murder in barely six years, from
    122
    1470 to 1476;23 the good prelate was forcefully impressed and justifiably scandalized when he read the document. Returning to Germany, Heinrich hastened to advise the authorities of Regensburg to open an immediate inquiry intended to determine whether or not a ritual murder had really occurred in the Jewish quarter during the Passover feast of 1467.2

    CHAPTER TWELVE
    THE MEMORIAL OF THE PASSION
    The use of the blood of Christian children in the celebration of the Jewish Passover was apparently the object of minute regulation, at least according to the depositions of all the defendants in the Trent trials. These depositions describe exactly what was prohibited, what was permitted, and what was tolerated, all in meticulous detail. Every eventuality was foreseen and dealt with; the use of blood was governed by broad and exhaustive case law, almost as if it formed an integral part of the most firmly established regulations relating to the ritual. The blood, powdered or dessicated, was mixed into the dough of the unleavened or “solemn” bread, the shimmurim – not ordinary bread. The shimmurim – in fact, three loaves for each of the two evenings during which the ritual dinner of the Seder was served – were considered one of the principal symbolic foods of the feast, and their accurate preparation and baking took place during the days preceding the advent of Pesach.
    During the Seder, the blood had to be dissolved into the wine immediately prior to recitation of the ten curses against the land of Egypt. The wine was later poured into a basin or a cracked earthenware pot and thrown away. The performance of the ritual required only a minimum quantity of blood in powdered form, equal in quantity to a lentil.
    The obligation to procure blood and to use it during the Passover ritual was the exclusive responsibility of the head of the family, i.e., a responsible male with a dependent wife and children. Bachelors, widowers, guests and employees, all those without dependent family, were exempt. In view of the difficulty of procuring such a rare and costly ingredient, it was anticipated that the wealthiest Jews would provide blood for the poorest Jews, an eccentric form of charity benefiting heads of families disinherited by fate.
    Samuele da Nuremberg reported that:
    “The evening before Pesach, when they stir the dough with which the unleavened bread (the shimmurim) is later prepared, the head of the family takes the blood of a Christian child and mixes it into the dough while it is being kneaded, using the entire quantity available, keeping in

    mind that the measure of a lentil is sufficient. The head of the family sometimes performs this operation in the presence of those kneading the unleavened bread, and sometimes without their knowledge, based on whether or not they can be trusted”.1
    Maestro Tobias restricted himself to recalling that “every year, the blood, in powdered form, is kneaded into the dough of the unleavened bread prepared the evening before the feast, and is then eaten on the solemn day, i.e., the day of Passover”.2 This testimony was confirmed by Mohar (Meir), the son of Mosè “the old Man” of Würzburg,3 as well as by the convert Giovanni da Feltre, who had seen his father Schochat (Sacheto) perform the ritual while still living at Landshut in Bavaria.4
    Isacco da Gridel, Angelo da Verona’s cook, admitted to kneading the shimmurim containing blood for eight years, preparing it for the celebration of the Seder. Joav of Franconia, Tobias’ domestic servant, recalled the custom from as much as seventeen years back, when she was in service with a rich Jew from Würzburg. Mosè da Bamburg, the traveler staying with Angelo of Verona, in his long deposition, stated that he had personally performed this operation when he was head of the family in Germany. Later, when he moved to Italy, he had seen it performed at Borgo San Giovanni, in the Piacenza region, in the home of money lender Sacle or Sacla (Izchak), who inserted the blood into the unleavened bread while his wife Potina kneaded the dough. Vitale, Samuele da Nuremberg’s agent, attested to the custom as a result of having seen it performed for three consecutive years by his uncle, Salomone, at Monza.
    The subject matter of these depositions was also confirmed by the women involved. Bella, the wife of Mayer da Würzburg, reported that she had seen her father preparing the shimmurim from the time she was a child at Nuremberg, in preparation for the first two evenings during which the Seder used grains of dried blood in the dough. Sara, Tobias’s wife, recalled that her first husband, Elia, whom she married at Marburg, had used blood for this purpose, and that she had also seen the practice in many Jewish homes in Mestre.5 Bona, Angelo da Verona’s sister, stated that she had seen the brother placing the [dried] blood, [dissolved and] diluted in water, into the dough of the unleavened and so-called solemn bread, the shimmurim, which was kept under surveillance, and had to be eaten during the first two evenings of the festival, during the Seder. “Angelo himself, took a bit of the Christian child’s [dried] blood and dissolved it in water, then poured the water containing the blood into the dough with which they then made the unleavened loaves, three of which Angelo and the other members of his family and Bona herself ate during the Passover
    261
    evening feast, while the other three members ate it the evening of the next day”.6
    Angelo da Verona’s report was rather more detailed. After briefly recalling that the Ashkenazi Jews “take a small quantity of the blood and they put it in the dough with which they later make the unleavened bread which they eat during the solemn days of the Passover”.
    He went on to provide a detailed description of the rite of preparing the shimmurim “with blood”.7 First of all, he explained to the judges, the ritual action was carried out “as a sign of outrage against Jesus Christ, whom the Christians claim is their God”. He then continued, supplying whatever clarification he considered dutiful and necessary: “Eating unleavened bread with Christian blood in it means that, just as the body and powers of Jesus Christ, the God of the Christians, went down to perdition with His death, thus, the Christian blood contained in the unleavened bread shall be ingested and completely consumed”.
    How much truth there was to this key anti-Christian interpretation of the presumed Jewish haematophagia [blood-eating] through the medium of unleavened bread, and just how much was invented to please the inquisitors concerned, is unknown. It is however a fact that Angelo supplied a very colorful and credible representation of the ritual, utilizing the correct formulae from the classical Jewish liturgy.
    “They place the blood in their unleavened loaves in this manner: after placing the blood in the dough, they knead it and stir it around to prepare the unleavened bread (the shimmurim). Then they poke holes in it, pronouncing these words: Chen icheressù chol hoyveha, which, translated, means ‘Thus may our enemies be consumed’. At this point, the unleavened loaves are ready to be eaten”.8
    This Hebrew invective is not an invention. It may in fact be found among the blessings and curses pronounced during the so-called “Haggadah of the Jewish New Year” (Rosh Ha-Shanah) just before the feast dinner. On this occasion, the reading of the various formulae was accompanied by the consumption of vegetables and fruit, in addition to fish and a lamb’s head, recalling, by means of a pun on their Hebrew names, the type of blessing or curse which the reader intended to pronounce. Leeks are called cartì, and the invective associated with its name was known as she-iccaretu (iccaresu in the Ashkenazi pronunciation) col hoyevenu, that is, “may all our enemies be exterminated (“consumed” according to Angelo)”.9 The original inspiration was, as usual, Biblical and prophetical (Mich. 5:9) “And all thine enemies shall be cut off” (we-chos hoyevecha iccaretu). At this point, it becomes much more difficult to dismiss the insertion of these
    262
    Hebrew-language execrations into the ritual of the Christian blood added to the solemn unleavened bread as merely the extemporaneous and extravagant invention of Angelo da Verona, “softened up” with torture.

    So the blood was dried to a powder for long term storage. I wonder how much of it was really human blood and how much was animal blood collected at the local butcher shop.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you’ve already jumped into fantasy land.
     
    The Torah is only the first five books of the Old Testament. Ron said:

    For example, traditionally religious Jews pay little attention to most of the Old Testament, and even very learned rabbis or students who have devoted many years to intensive study may remain largely ignorant of its contents.
     
    Emphasis added.

    You are wrong.

    Don’t be silly. The Talmud is a vast collection of purposefully contradictory attempts to explain the written Torah. This makes the Torah, and the rest of the Old Testament, far more central to Judaism than the Talmud. Your weaselly attempt to avoid admitting this by focussing on his use of the word “most” is utterly irrelevant, especially given the relative importance of the five books of the Torah versus the rest of the Old Testament.

    Not that the Talmud can be described as one work anymore than Wikipedia, including its endless edits pages, could.

    You don't know what you are talking about and furthermore do not make sense. If the Talmud is about explaining the Torah, why does that make the rest of the Old Testament far more central to Judaism than the Talmud? The only weaselly attempt going on around here is you failing to acknowledge that you didn't know the Torah is not the Old Testament.

    Jewish tradition says that God dictated the Torah to Moses atop Mt. Sinai. Not so the rest of the Old Testament. So it makes sense that Jews would regard it less.

    Ron,

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch's analysis that appeared to refute your article's claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch's did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?

    Actually, I’ve responded to her total nonsense over and over again. But I suppose I might as well do so one more time, merely by republishing a previous lengthy comment of mine from a couple of months ago:

    http://www.unz.com/article/a-reply-to-jordan-peterson/#comment-2345137

    However, according to The Harvard Crimson’s Class of 2017 Freshman Survey, only 9.5% of Harvard freshmen identify their religious affiliation as Jewish.

    Ha, ha, ha. It’s nice to see that our good friend “Tyrion 2″ is doing his best to confirm my finding that Jews these days are not particularly bright, and perhaps providing some additional evidence that dim-wittedness is particularly strong among the fanatic ethnic-activist segment of Jewry, including himself.

    Okay, so he located an extremely helpful datapoint that 9.5% of the Harvard Class of 2017 are *religiously* Jewish. However, it only took me a few seconds to locate this Haaretz article:

    https://www.haaretz.com/jewish/jews-least-observant-int-l-poll-finds-1.5287579

    It notes that Jews are among the world’s *least* religious groups, and that worldwide only 38% of (ethnic) Jews follow the Jewish *religion*. Assuming that The Crimson survey is correct and Harvard Jews are typical of those worldwide, this would imply that 9.5% / 0.38 = 25%(!!!) of Harvard freshmen are *ethnically* Jewish, which by an astonishing coincidence is *exactly* the Hillel figure I was using. I think I’d call that a game-ending own-goal…

    Indeed, since religiosity is especially strong among ultra-Orthodox Jews who are very mediocre in their academic achievement, while America’s most academically elite groups—Jew or Gentile—tend to be among the least religious, this figure might even be an underestimate. Certainly back during my own Harvard days, I’d have been astonished if even 1/3 of the Jews I knew practiced “the Jewish religion.”

    Jewish-activists are notorious for playing these sorts of very slippery definitional games. For example, I wouldn’t be surprised if “Tyrion 2″ were to claim that there had never been a single “Jewish Communist.” How could there be, since Communists by definition practice no religion.

    Incidentally, having personally met that “Nurit Baytch” woman when I was giving a talk on my Meritocracy article at the University of Chicago Law School, she seemed an absolutely perfect example of the fanatic “Jewish berserker” type I was discussing in my article. And my Yale Law School lecture had quite a number of them in the audience.

    Otherwise, I’d like to thank many of the other commenters for their very kind words, and also catching a number of my careless typos, which I’ve now corrected.

    Funny, I thought of this looney bird when you used the phrase. There was some other lunatic I encountered like this some years earlier; ran a Holocaust Museum, and accused me of antisemitism for posting a Laibach video on my own personal FB feed. That's kind of like being accused of antisemitism for posting a ... Star Trek video or something equally irrelevant. I don't think I had ever had an antisemitic thought before encountering this person.
    , @Wizard of Oz
    Trying again to post the comment below.... please read beyond my initial gripe


    ********************

    Ron, allow me please to take advantage of this latest of your fascinating American Pravda series to raise miscellaneous matters.

    1. I have always used smartphones much more than computers for commenting and have had no reason (apart from some typographical limitations) to do otherwise - until recently. I have lost quite a number of lengthy comments which simply wouldn't allow publishing and, despite some of them remaining as draft replies - if not always to the right original comment - eventually several disappeared irrecoverably.  I wonder if this is associated with the frequent irritating immediate response to my seeking to open unz.com or a comment that has turned up in my Inbox.  This, apart from a long series of digits and letters as a last line after the word or code "RAY", is what appears

    "5 seconds" - I wish! If it actually doesn't time out it is a lot longer than 5 seconds. (Admittedly it may be speed at my end that is the problem)

    **** *****

    2. Completely different and much more interesting.....

    I wonder if your sampling of the MSM or your conception of it is too narrow.  Having found that I can watch TV while spending 35 minutes on my exercise bike I can admit to indulging myself with some well made programs - usually on the History or National Geographic channels. 

    Just now I have finished watching "The American War on Drugs" which is the first, I think in a series which will get to Escobar, Medellin and cocaine later. This one started in Cuba in the late 50s and went little beyond Nixon's announcement of the "war on drugs" a year before he was finished.  There are no holds barred in blaming the CIA for the huge rise in heroin smuggling and use from 1960 to 1970 approx.  and also for the Timothy Leary led madness with LSD, the CIA being shown to have got volunteers in Vietnam to test it in return for time out of action.  And just in case Nixon and his crew should get any credit the crackdown on drug trafficking and more possession was attributed to a real intention to hammer the politically left young, and blacks.


    Another example would be the programs I have seen on the Vietnam war (Ken Burns)  and on the Clinton presidency.  No doubt some of those who can't live without the belief that only they can see the cover up would point to something missing but the disastrous mistakes over Vietnam in the 60s, including the deceptions (though Tonkin Gulf wasn't quite as blatant a deception as commonly assumed: the word "unprovoked" is key) and the politics are not glossed over. My memory of the Clinton film focuses on how like Trump's first year Clinton's was as he showed how little the boy who knew how everything worked in Arkansas knew about DC.  It also pulls no punches when it speculates that Bill's handing over the Healthcare reforms to be made such a mess of by Hillary was partly because he loved her mind but also probably because he owed her for putting up with Gennifer Flowers and the others.


    3. and BTW one failed post took up the question of what causes some traditions to persist and whether diagnosing the social, environmental and psychological causes of some decidedly non assimilationist views of Jews in various countries over the last 350 years might give useful clues as to how long Muslims are going to be a problem, which Muslims in which countries - and what can be done about it.


    Maybe useful for some. It may be that this wasn't published because my wifi was slow but that switching to mobile data fixed it.....

    , @Wizard of Oz
    Just a thought - on which your thoughts would be especially valued.....

    In Australia where, historically, our small population used to follow first English or more broadly British fashions and then, in the 20th century, with sometimes 20 year lags, American ways, we never had the equivalent of the great Red State flyover country of small towns stocked with Bible bashing [choose insulting description to taste].

    The Catholic Church in Australia has long since lost battles against legal abortion and there is no serious Protestant vote on anything. And I don't detect any Jewish animus against Christians. Even after the increase in the Orthodox Jewish numbers thanks to Hitler, and then the creation of Israel it is difficult to detect any great anti-Christian Jewish community feeling - though you could question whether I would notice and also note that Jews are proportionately fewer in Oz than in the US. So....

    My theory is that a great many Jews in America are people like me who simply have no sympathy with the religion or ideas of the Red State Protestants any more than with the now retreating Catholic hierarchs. Maybe there are not many big battles to be fought - though Roe v. Wade may need to be defended - but the divide (tinged with contempt) is mostly cultural in a broad sense with nothing much Judaic involved. Consistently with this speculative analysis I would accept that in parts of the US - at least in the East - there is a critical mass of Jews which tends to keep a cultural bubble sealed for many and allows trivial reinforcement like retelling of stories of grandpa's being blackballed by the golf club.

    Am I on a discernible track?

    Ron, I realize you're a very busy man, but have you given any thought to the possibility of allowing those Unzers who care to do so to somehow download their archive of comments to their own machines for safekeeping? Not sure if others feel the same way, but given your penchant for truth telling, I have a foreboding sense that this very fine site of yours may be targeted and the record of our extensive comments may be lost.

    Not sure if this is doable, but if it is it would be greatly appreciated.
    , @ANON
    Everyone follows your comments Ron so let me take advantage of that to see who might find proof online that Tina Green (Christina indeed) is Jewish. The fact that her husband, with the name [Sir] Philip Nigel Ross Green, is as obviously Jewish as Harry Dexter White doesn't count, and the fact that their son had a bar mitzvah only adds a question re conversion (not likely one valid in Israel where the Greens show no sign of settling, or even being buried near Robert Maxwell). While one can only commend the Greens splendid example in combating the fiscal fiend could they not have taught Bernie Madoff how to settle withthe most aggrieved losers and stay out of jail?
    , @Wizard of Oz
    Ron I would like to think introducing you to Simon Shama's "Belonging: The Story of the Jews 1492 to 1900" might be some return for the pleasure and stimulation you have given with your recent (21st century) discoveries. Apparently given to me late last year shortly after publication I have just started on its 800 pages by tackling its first and last chapters, both very readable.

    In the last chapter you may find yourself sympathizing with Theodor Hertzl who, as events of the 1890s - if not precisely the Dreyfus Affair as he later seemed to claim - crystallized his view that emancipation had failed and that a homeland for Jews was necessary. Like you he had the experience of being surprised by what he had found had already been written.

    The description of the convulsions in France and the diviseness the Dreyfus Affair caused - or revived - is truly horrifying to a modern secularist and, for me, makes Zionism as a concept for the years before 1914 a pretty innocent and even practical idea.

    I was unaware of the specifics of French division over Dreyfus. Apparently Cézanne and Dégas were on the virulently anti-Dreyfus side in contrast to Vuillard and Monet to mention only well known names that come back to mind. Enjoy.

    You are a fool and Hitler was a fool. You are excused because no deeper understanding of reality (Liever Turks dan Paaps) is expected from a Dutch but Hitler being an Austrian Catholic is not excused.

    You are a fool and Hitler was a fool.

    To a certain extant we’re all fools, so what’s the point?

    Hitler was that rare leader who, it’s obvious, cared about what was happening to his people, and thought he could do something for their benefit so he probably was a fool in that regard.

    Perhaps, though, you could enlighten us to some other ways he was a fool and name a few others who were not.

    Also, were 10 separate Englishmen to, without contact, write 10 separate independent books picking up parts of English History that might be construed, via the worst possible yet still just about reasonable light, as damning of English behaviour in particular times and particular places. That would be just 10 separate out there books.

    Were someone else to collect all 10 books and summarise them adjacently in order to insinuate some sort of grand narrative which implied essential evil, then that person would be gravely mistaken. Surely they must realise how dishonest their argument would be?

  139. https://archive.org/details/youtube-O1MC4Am2c_Y

    Razib Khan’s conversation with David Sloan Wilson hints at why Ron Unz’s cool, calm collection of information on “Oddities of the Jewish Religion” is necessary, welcome, long overdue, and one more effort at, not so much breaking the Jew taboo but rather, normalizing facts-and-logic based discussion of how one particular group that holds enormous influence over world events, functions.

    Khan remains in the camp of the pusillanimous, desperately eager to “move on:”

    5: 08 Khan: “MacDonald is going in a dark direction . . .”

    Wilson failed to affirm Khan’s “dark direction. ” “What Kevin said has stood the test of time . . .”
    and expanded:

    Wilson: “When does what Kevin says become problematic? There’s gotta be a way that we can study culture as corporate units.”

    Khan: “Sure, sure.
    Wilson: “Including acknowledging the mean things they do to each other.

    Khan: “. . . as a description it is what it is; I don’t have any, you know — People cite him occasionally on my weblog . . . about the strategies Jews are using to suborn uh western civilization, just all sorts of strange things. Derbyshire wrote kind of a negative review . . . and Kevin responded, ‘Look at what happens to gentile intellectuals who are defending Jewish interests.’

    “So Kevin . . . has basically come out as a white nationalist, but gentile . . . He’s taken his ideas and become maybe more of an applied scientist? I don’t know . . .

    “Obviously it’s outside of the norms of people I would interact with and so . . . I encounter him now and then . . . he definitely seems to have gone in a more obviously white nationalist direction. . . .

    “He seems a fine enough fellow in exchanges but he obviously has a strong perspective on the role of Jewish power. I think he would say it’s distorted western culture, allowed mass immigration, all sorts of issues . . . But like I said, that’s kind of a dark prescription from the perspective of the main stream, so why don’t we just move on to the Evolution Institute which is going to try to be more in the main stream . . .”

    Wilson refuses to let go, to the point of introducing the concept, parasitism:

    Wilson: “What’s parasitism but the exploitation by something small of something big? ”
    Khan: “He says Jews are parasites.”
    Wilson: “That’s been a mainstay of antisemitism, right?
    Khan: “Yeah.”
    Wilson: “Okay, but let me talk as an ecologist, ok? Parasitism is something small exploiting something big. Predation is something big exploiting something small, right?”
    Khan: “Ha ha yeah. ”
    Wilson: “. . . and of course there’s competition which can be engaged by both large and small, right? . . . Now if we expect these along with other interactions among human groups, can we expect Jewish people to be parasitic? Yes. Can we expect bigger groups to be predatory? Yes. So what makes this as benign as it can be is we gotta show the ____ here, the blame; nobody — it’s not as if everybody is behaving honorably except those Jews, right?”

    Well that was as fascinating as it was morbid. As usual, thank you for sharing. You're doing (Christian) God's work!

    religious Jews apparently pray to Satan
     
    Synagogue of Satan confirmed!

    Christianity in particular is regarded as a total abomination, which must be wiped from the face of the earth.
     
    Adding further credibility to the notion that Christianity was created as an anti-Jewish weapon. I watched a vid on YouTube some time ago between Kevin McDonald and... I want to say David Duke? But they were getting in to that theory quite a bit.

    Though, all things considered, the modern day implications of this article only make me wish I really could rely on a holy savior descending from the sky to rescue us from such an incomprehensible evil.

    when the true history of our last one hundred years is finally written and told—probably by a Chinese professor at a Chinese university—none of the students in his lecture hall will ever believe a word of it.
     
    Reminds me of the spirit cooking thing with Podesta from the 2016 election cycle. And the #PizzaGate thing. That video of the after hours event they were holding in that pizza shop still gives me the creeps.

    I often refer to people these days as cattle, for obvious reasons. But thinking about what I read here in the context of modern times.... how soul crushing it is even just to consider that we may..probably are.. quite literally be cattle for these people.

    I think I see the farm. But how do I leave it?

    Ehh... I really shoulda saved this read for the morning...

    “Adding further credibility to the notion that Christianity was created as an anti-Jewish weapon. “

    This reminds me of one of John Carpenter’s lesser known horror movies, a 1987 gem called “Prince of Darkness”. In it, one of the characters makes a discovery that Jesus was a spirit (or possibly an alien!) sent to earth to warn it about and protect it from a very real and literal demon. The Church made the decision to keep this information under wraps, and convince its followers that things such as the Devil, Hell, and evil were abstract concepts rather than a very real manifestation.

    Although I have not seen Prince of Darkness since the early 90's, I remember it being one of the top 3 scariest movies I had ever seen, up there with The Omen and The Shining. (The Exorcist being a slightly distant 4th.)

    A few typos I picked up:

    "One or the one" should probably be "one or the other."

    "Discontented facts" should probably be "disconnected facts."

    "Lenni Brunner" should be Lenni Brenner.

    -----------

    All in all, I found this a solid summary of some interesting but obscure factual claims. I think it was somewhat irresponsible not include a discussion of just how widespread such beliefs, attitudes and practices are among Jews today. Without such a discussion, I fear too much of the commentary will be about how 'anti-semitic' the essay is, rather than how accurate it is.

    Any Jewish communities that practice such things today must keep it extremely secret.

    The internal security agencies of Israel might know if these practices go on in Israel but they will cover it up.

    Ron, I don't know if you've drunk your own koolaid or if this is some sort of bizarre grand experiment in creating a deranged and lunatic cult.

    There's a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived. The oscillating hot/cold and reasonable/unreasonable tone is the type of manipulation that I am sensitive to seeing, and reacting against.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you've already jumped into fantasy land.

    For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. The Talmud is not. It is instead a millenia old vast Jewish Wikipedia in which the most controversial stuff would be found in the commentson edits, the comments on comments on edits and so on and so on and so on.

    Were an alien to browse the internet message boards as you may have browsed the Talmud, they would make all sorts of unreal conclusions.

    I suspect that indeed the huge swelling in third world anti-Western resentment pre-9/11 may actually have been a result of middle class people in the third world getting connected and assuming Western peoples were entirely depraved and without any moral value. As time has passed, they have gained a context for this and their anti-Western feelings are incomparably lower, despite all of the wars.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you’ve already jumped into fantasy land.

    You can read the basis for that claim in The online Jewish Encyclopedia

    You really are getting sillier every day. Hitler didn't want war indeed. He wanted what he wanted without having to fight. Gee whiz!

    Hitler knew that in order to get what he wanted he had to make his opponents believe that if necessary he would wage war.
    The Polish provocations made it necessary for him to really wage war.
    Poland wanted war, GB not, is my idea, FDR wanted war.

    Ok, here goes:

    I believe that Judaism controls the US, the EU, etc. The thing I just CANNOT understand is WHY!

    Yes, Jews are intelligent, but they aren't THAT intelligent; Jews are VERY ethnocentric, but that doesn't explain it either.

    The fact is that they make up only 1% or so of the worlds population; I've always thought that the bottom line is that force rules, but that doesn't seem to apply in this case.

    Why don't gentiles and Asians simply take back what the Jews have stolen FROM THEM; how could they stop us? We outnumber them several times over, and have far more military power. I just don't get it!

    I believe that Judaism controls the US, the EU, etc. The thing I just CANNOT understand is WHY!

    An individual sociopath in a trust-based society will virtually always “win” his parasitic, extractive and sometimes lethal game because he’s the only one playing it. His targets just want to establish normal, trusting relationships. It has nothing to do with intelligence.

    Interestingly enough, the alleged percentage of sociopaths in Western societies is 2%. That’s what shields them. For every sociopath, there are 49 non-sociopaths who will mostly operate, and experience, relatively normal interpersonal relationships which makes them susceptible.

    Fortunately/unfortunately for the Tribe, their sociopathy is organised and multi-generational. It leads to great material successes in the short-medium term but that inevitably leads to massive blowbacks when their greed and hubris outstrips their stealth capabilities.

    Why don’t gentiles and Asians simply take back what the Jews have stolen FROM THEM

    We will. The parasite’s hold on the brain and the endocrine system (authority and messaging) is falling apart.

    You never replied to her substantive points. You merely took the opening superficial rhetoric in her work and made a strawman out of it.

    As I pointed out previously (to no reply):

    Whomever that lady is (it doesn’t matter) applied the same technique that you used to estimate the percentage of Jewish National Merit Semifinalists to the percentage of Jewish Harvard students and found that Hillel was wrong.

    Ergo, you are wrong. Your entire argument is based off the unjustified stats collected by a silly Jewish student organisation to engage in a little ethnic boosterism.

    Also, were 10 separate Englishmen to, without contact, write 10 separate independent books picking up parts of English History that might be construed, via the worst possible yet still just about reasonable light, as damning of English behaviour in particular times and particular places. That would be just 10 separate out there books.

    Were someone else to collect all 10 books and summarise them adjacently in order to insinuate some sort of grand narrative which implied essential evil, then that person would be gravely mistaken. Surely they must realise how dishonest their argument would be?

    Why on earth would anyone do such a thing?

    It did happen. It probably was rare, mostly because of fear of the local governments prosecuting the murderers for murder with enhancements of child abuse and witch craft.

    Many religions practiced human and animal sacrifice. Right into the 1800s European and even some American construction workers sacrificed a small animal like a squirrel or rabbit and buried it in the foundations of the building.

    Even 2 + 3 rd generation Chinese scientists believe trees in streets and front yards are bad luck and either cut them down or if there is some city or HOA restriction on cutting down trees dump gallons of pesticide on the roots.

    There’s no difference between a mezzuah in the door jamb and a corn dolly in the window.

    Jews have kidnapped, tortured and murdered Christians and used their blood in religious rituals.

    School desegregation, school busing affirmative action and the enabling of rampant black crime and the destruction of our great cities were funded by Jewish organizations and effected by mostly Jewish attorneys.

    Jews are remarkably clear headed about this – I have had Jews tell me that Jews cheat, but gentiles murder, and this is what one should watch out for in dealing with the two groups.
     
    That's hardly clear headed. It basically means that the Gentiles should be fought only when then start a war against you while the Tribe is "cheating" and scheming goyim demise 24/7/365.

    How's that Jewish IQ number progressing anyway? 95 sound wildly optimistic at this point.

    No, it means the gentiles are always starting a war against someone (historically indisputable). And that Jews are always at war with someone. (Historically indisputable). But that both deploy different weapons, according to his capacity and circumstances.

    The clear headed and honest person – .0001 of mankind – recognizes these facts objectively without getting hysterical about them.

    Europeans fight each other incessantly, conquer most of the world – then complain that Jews used cunning, deceit, and the power of money to gain the upper hand over Europeans.

    It’s really quite childish.

    So cheating and scheming are uniquely bad while “honest” physical aggression that kills millions and lays waste to half the earth is “honorable” – its childish.

    The clear headed philosopher understands that the biological world is a war of all against wall, and that cheating is quite as legitimate as physical violence in this war.

    Of course, being a clear headed philosopher means seeing at least one level up from the biological realm – and those stuck in the biological conflict can only see “their side” and cannot attain to objectivity.

    So I hardly expect you to see things from a larger perspective beyond “your side” – nor would it be healthy for you, so long as you are stuck in the biological combat of all against all.

    But there are a tiny few who are poised to tip over into the blissful “extra biological” perspective – I write for this happy few, and do not expect people like you to understand me.

    No. By your ("jewish friends") own logic Gentiles are only dangerous when at war while the Tribe should be exterminated once for all because they never stop. I'd rather die in a battle - protecting my progeny - than succumb to slow, parasitic poison.

    Aaron's comments make a lot more sense when you substitute "human" for "gentile," but it's not really necessary to do so to notice that he's absorbed the Jews' view of reality (humanity vs. Jews).

Thus force the hostile jews declare themselves as such and avoid the nuremberg situation. This registry so to speak would have to be done by jews and would cause quite a stir if it took off, but it might actually end up defusing the coming civil war which is very likely to become a race war if isnt forestalled. Jews coming out in significant enough numbers as white nationalist before hostilities is the only way I see as avoiding war, its in their interest as they will certainly be held accountable for a lot of the wars causes. Wars to not allow for nuance and good people are going to be forced to choose the lesser evil or the greater truth. whites are also going to have to be pragmatic and wont be able to execute half their own for war crimes so a scapegoat will be required. Lets get the actual goats on the record ahead of time and let jews who identify as whites do so and jews who simply loyal but not hostile jews opt out of hostilities.

    And here are the indispensable truths to carry forward:

    Jews as a group will remain the same until such time as converted completely, truly, to Christ.

    Because being anti-Christ is central to Jewish identity, and because only European peoples built a Christian civilization, Jewish culture will always be viciously anti-white Gentile, because Christ-hating Jews feel they are justified in Christ-hating if they can defeat, subdue, ruin the peoples of historic Christendom.

    Protestantism even under the 'anti-Semite Luther' is a series of heresies that requires Judaizing.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a thoroughly Judaizing heresy that formed the final, and most important (because theological and therefore both spiritual and moral) basis of WASP culture.

    The British Empire spread the fruits of WASP Judaizing across the globe. The Yank Empire has continued the spread, and entrenchment, of stridently pro-Jewish culture across the globe.

    If you say that only European peoples built a Christian civilization, then is the Jew Testament wrong? Was the Apostle Philip mistaken to recruit Africans into the church? Was the Holy Spirit in error for providing teleporting services afterward? (Acts 8:26-40) Did the first Christians at Antioch commit an error including Simeon the Nigger (Black man) in the church and elevating him to a position of leadership of “prophets and teachers?”

    If, as you say, Jewish culture will always be viciously anti-white Gentile, then why do you worship a viciously anti-white Gentile who railed against Gentile White Patriarchy (Matthew 20:25, Mark 10:42, Luke 22:25) and demanded one “hate” and “forsake” their own blood and soil?(Luke 14:26, Matthew 19:27-30)

    Is not the Jew Testament itself thoroughly Judaizing?

    WE WORSHIP what we do know, for salvation is from THE JEWS.” John 4:22
    Acts 3:25 “He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’”
    Romans 1:16 “The Jew first.”
    Romans 9:4 “The people of Israel, chosen.”
    Romans 15:27 “For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.”

    Ron,

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch's analysis that appeared to refute your article's claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch's did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard.

    Comments by Mr. Unz on the matter and some of my own as well. Follow the links provided underneath the quoted passages for more in-depth analysis, commentary, etc.:

    [MORE]

    It notes that Jews are among the world’s *least* religious groups, and that worldwide only 38% of (ethnic) Jews follow the Jewish *religion*. Assuming that The Crimson survey is correct and Harvard Jews are typical of those worldwide, this would imply that 9.5% / 0.38 = 25%(!!!) of Harvard freshmen are *ethnically* Jewish, which by an astonishing coincidence is *exactly* the Hillel figure I was using.

    [...]
    As for Nurit Baytch [...]
    She reminded me a bit of those “Weather Underground” girls I’ve sometimes seen in photos of the 1960s. I tend to distrust detailed statistical analyses allegedly performed on private datasets by mentally ill individuals.

    Her senior partner in all of her supposed statistical “debunkings” was Prof. Janet Mertz, who herself seems to have somewhat odd views on all sorts of things. I discuss some of her work here

These numbers combined make Harvard’s Jewish student population ~33% of the student body.:

    6712 Undergrads
    4326 Graduates
    803* (12%)Jewish Undergrads(Percent of Population)

    I offered a counter-argument to this point, which Andrew Gelman and Nathan Cofnas had made as well
    [...]
    Since Haredi Jews mostly don’t attend regular universities and pursue religious rather than intellectual/scientific studies, even though they are mostly based in “major urban centers”, at least 10% of the Jewish community, in the northeastern United States and in the United Kingdom likely closer to 20%, would not apply to elite universities, which makes the Jewish overrepresentation at the Ivy League, etc. even starker than Mr. Unz documented

    Don’t be silly. The Talmud is a vast collection of purposefully contradictory attempts to explain the written Torah. This makes the Torah, and the rest of the Old Testament, far more central to Judaism than the Talmud. Your weaselly attempt to avoid admitting this by focussing on his use of the word “most” is utterly irrelevant, especially given the relative importance of the five books of the Torah versus the rest of the Old Testament.

    Not that the Talmud can be described as one work anymore than Wikipedia, including its endless edits pages, could.

    You don’t know what you are talking about and furthermore do not make sense. If the Talmud is about explaining the Torah, why does that make the rest of the Old Testament far more central to Judaism than the Talmud? The only weaselly attempt going on around here is you failing to acknowledge that you didn’t know the Torah is not the Old Testament.

    Jewish tradition says that God dictated the Torah to Moses atop Mt. Sinai. Not so the rest of the Old Testament. So it makes sense that Jews would regard it less.

    Why do jews want to control the world ?
    I do not know.
    Why did Baruch bring FDR into politics to start a world war ?
    Why does Soros want to control and change Hungary ?
    Both men were seen as second rate citizens when they were young, Baruch in the USA.
    Soros as a child experienced anti semitism in WWII in Hungary.
    Baruch’s father fled anti semitic Germany around 1870, from memory.
    Their motives, fear, revenge, lust for power, some mixture, I do not know.
    If you read Stephen Steinlight fear does exist.
    And indeed, it cannot be denied that christianity persecuted jews, Islam far less.
    When christian persecution began, suppose no later than when the Roman empire became christian.
    The reformation of Luther was no improvement, Luther seems to have hated jews.
    Just in the 19th century jews became equal civil rights in most countries.
    But, writes Katz, these equal rights were given in the expectation that jews would disappear through assimilation.
    The opposite happened, jews continued to intermarry, had close economic cooperation.
    ‘From prejudice to destruction’, Jacob Katz, 1980, Cambridge MA
    Some jews developed loyalty problems:
    Jakob Wassermann, ‘MEIN WEG ALS DEUTSCHER UND ALS JUDE’, Berlin 1921
    His novel to me seems a great description of how jews felt
    Jakob Wassermann, ‘Die Juden von Zirndorf’, 1897 1999 München
    Of course there were assimilated jews galore, in western countries, most of them sephardic, and anti zionism, what they saw as an insult to them.
    Gilad Atzmon, who describes himself as ‘Palestinian jew’, he was born in Israel, wants collective psychotherapy for all jews.

    My. Well, offhand, I imagine my reaction will lie somewhere midway between the uncritical applause of the anti-semite brigade and the shocked denunciations of the guardians of political orthodxy.

    The comments I'm about to post are more or less haphazard. I merely wish to emphasize that I actually agree with most of what I read; I'm listing my points of dissent, not my points of agreement.

    First off, it's an exaggeration -- and a self-defeating one -- to say that the Russian Communists were 'overwhelmingly' Jewish. Disproportionately, certainly, and indeed, heavily, but not 'overwhelmingly.' Perhaps a third of the prominent figures were Jewish. Have half. The point is that Communism, while heavily Jewish, was also gentile.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That's obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around. The author is actually more representative of the average Jewish intellectual than he may think. Indeed, this compulsion to dissent -- rather than some sinister urge to reduce the goyim to misery -- may do much to explain the attraction revolutionary creeds hold for Jews.

    I'll also note that the monolithic Judaism paradigm fails in the face of the enormous intermarriage rate among Jewish men. If there is a Jewish plot, a good half of Jewish men are completely failing to do their duty.

    So that's about it. Revisionism -- of all kinds -- is good and useful. However, it usually goes too far. If the Jew as immaculately innocent and eternal victim paradigm is obviously inaccurate, it doesn't follow that the exact opposite must be the case.

    If it wasn't for Israel, I'd actually have no problem with Jews. I found myself confronting this when I decided to buy a camera from B&H Camera. I realized the firm is owned by Satmar Jews, who think that when the Messiah comes, all the bad gentiles will go to hell while all the good gentiles will be the slaves of Jews for all eternity.

    I thought about that for a bit, and eventually came to the conclusion that while their sentiment is hardly friendly, when the Messiah comes, we'll find out if they're right. In the meantime, they offer some excellent prices on cameras.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That’s obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around.

    That is nonsense – 85% of all Jews of all stripes, 100% of the time, support Zionist Israel and its mendacious occupation of Palestine. The vast majority of US Jews work to use the US government and taxpayer for Israel.

    It is an outrageous lie to say that Jews do not collude politically.

    The most dangerous word for Arabs and Muslims is the word “diaspora” when it refers to Jewish dispersion out of Palestine. Its meaning is not in dispute – that a people known as “Israelite” were dispersed two thousand years ago and their descendants have a “right of turn” to that specific location from which they were dispersed. Therefore, the Arabs have enemies scattered around the world, specially in the Western world, who demand to exercise that “right of return” by force and with the help of the powerful Western nations where these “diaspora people” live. The idea that the white Jews who originated in Europe and the black Jews of Africa and the brown Jews of the Middle East originated in Palestine is totally a childish notion. 95% of world Jewry is Ashkenazi at confirmed DNA of 99% European and 0% Middle Eastern. The sooner we dismiss this fraud called “diaspora”, the more peaceful our world will be.

    ” their tightly-bound trans-national colonies”

    Does anybody know what “colonies” it is referring to?

    Ashkenazi Jews are not 95% but 45%.

    Seems Muslims are incapable of peace regardless of Israel.

    Please explain how Israel caused Indonesian to invade Papua in 1963 , collonize , occupy to this day and genocide 500,000 + Papuans.

    How did Israel cause Indonesia to invade and genocide East Timor ?

    Why are muslims killing Hindus in India, Christians in Philippine, Nigeria, Egypt, Libya , France , Germany , UK, USA , Canada , Australia ,Russia , Indonesia ,Bhuddists in China , Myanmar , Thailand , And other muslims in every territory they occupy ?

    There is one authenticated child sacrificed by Jews. It’s the child Saint Hugo of Lincoln disappeared and found dead and drained of blood near Lincoln England in the 1200.

    There was also a N. Italian boy in the 1500s

    The mid 19th century Syrian was an adult, a Christian monk.

    Affirmative action is a Jewish war against the White goyim. The majority of attorneys on the anti White side of the affirmative action law suits have Jewish names. Same with the civil rights criminal attorneys that have made the once great cities crime ridden ghettoes.

    Re: employment, Whites are untouchables. It’s amazing the number of government agencies at all levels whose only function is to ensure that Whites aren’t hired for any job.

    It’s ny opinion that we goyim should be grateful American Jews haven’t yet done to us what they did to Russians 1918 to 1950? And what they’re doing to Palestinians now.

    Having personally known some Jewish weather underground and other radicals I know how much they hate us.

    I found Dr Macdonald’s trilogy in the university library where I worked. Having spent a lifetime around the Jewish old left and new left, nothing in those books was new to me.

    It was because of the Jewish tax collectors that Poland was partitioned between Russia Austria and Prussia. They kept so much of the tax money for themselves there was no money for either an army or any kind of diplomatic service.

    There is an oblique reference to a possible modern-times “blood libel” incident in the BBC series, “The World at War”, one of the best documentaries of WW II I have seen. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_at_War#Episodes) The penultimate episode of that series, “Reckoning (April 1945)”, deals with the aftermath of the war, particularly the continuing mass carnage, involving tens of millions of further deaths, which are ignored in most narratives.

    One incident, described in that episode, involved the return of two young Jewish men from a German concentration camp to their native village in Poland. Shortly after their return, these young men kidnapped and killed a Christian child. The Christian villagers responded with a pogrom in which some seventy odd Jews were killed. There was no further discussion of this incident in this episode of “The World at War”.

    Most of my close friends are Jews. I’d always thought the “blood libel” was superstitious nonsense. But the bare outlines of this post-WW II incident made me re-evaluate that particular personal opinion. This well-documented incident closely paralleled, in its general course, the many stories of “blood libel” incidents from European history and folk lore. A little research confirmed that, although widely separated in time and place, these incidents and even details of these incidents resembled one another markedly. Even a far lesser extent of similar confirmatory evidence for other rumored medieval activities would result in a widespread professional agreement that such activities did occur.

    Another interesting aspect of these stories is that they often hint at pederasty and other sexual perversions. The revelations of perverse sexuality among our “elites”, and particularly Jewish elites, e.g., Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, to name but a few, suggest that that such perversity may be more common among Ashkenazim than non-Jewish Europeans. Credence is lent this hypothesis by the fact that surveys of sexual behavior in Israel find reported rates of homosexual behavior that are several times higher than in any other country.

    High intelligence does seem to be related to various mental health issues, e.g., depression. I wonder if inbreeding and the cultural selection for high IQ in Ashkenazim, might have had additional negative consequences besides such autosomal recessive disorders as Tay-Sachs disease, Niemann-Pick disease, and Canavan disease. These are all diseases that primarily affect the nervous system. It seems probable to me that less conspicuous malfunctions of the brain, e.g., conditions encouraging abnormal sexual behaviors, might also be more common among Ashkenaz Jews.

    Without passing judgment on these child sacrifice allegations, I took the trouble to read the Medieval Court proceedings. I was surprised at the professionalism and objectivity of these Court cases. Nothing like the common perception of the Courts of the "Dark Ages". Is the common perception of the Middle Ages itself a Jewish perception?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard.
     
    Comments by Mr. Unz on the matter and some of my own as well. Follow the links provided underneath the quoted passages for more in-depth analysis, commentary, etc.:


    It notes that Jews are among the world’s *least* religious groups, and that worldwide only 38% of (ethnic) Jews follow the Jewish *religion*. Assuming that The Crimson survey is correct and Harvard Jews are typical of those worldwide, this would imply that 9.5% / 0.38 = 25%(!!!) of Harvard freshmen are *ethnically* Jewish, which by an astonishing coincidence is *exactly* the Hillel figure I was using.

These numbers combined make Harvard’s Jewish student population ~33% of the student body.:


    6712 Undergrads

    I offered a counter-argument to this point, which Andrew Gelman and Nathan Cofnas had made as well
    [...]
    Since Haredi Jews mostly don’t attend regular universities and pursue religious rather than intellectual/scientific studies, even though they are mostly based in “major urban centers”, at least 10% of the Jewish community, in the northeastern United States and in the United Kingdom likely closer to 20%, would not apply to elite universities, which makes the Jewish overrepresentation at the Ivy League, etc. even starker than Mr. Unz documented

    You don't know what you are talking about and furthermore do not make sense. If the Talmud is about explaining the Torah, why does that make the rest of the Old Testament far more central to Judaism than the Talmud? The only weaselly attempt going on around here is you failing to acknowledge that you didn't know the Torah is not the Old Testament.

    Jewish tradition says that God dictated the Torah to Moses atop Mt. Sinai. Not so the rest of the Old Testament. So it makes sense that Jews would regard it less.

    The Torah is the most important part of the Old Testament. According to Judaism it was handed down by God. I said that the Talmud, an endless Jewish squabble on the meaning of the Torah, was less important. You disagreed. You’re wrong.

    Yes, Jews are intelligent, but they aren't THAT intelligent; Jews are VERY ethnocentric, but that doesn't explain it either.

    The fact is that they make up only 1% or so of the worlds population; I've always thought that the bottom line is that force rules, but that doesn't seem to apply in this case.

    Ron, as a Jew raised in the Reform tradition, I can't speak to the claims about Talmudic Judaism. But your claims that "our media pundits regularly identify Putin as 'the new Hitler'" seems largely untrue. A quick Google search on "the new Hitler" turns up only 70,000 results, links that refer mostly to Saddam Hussain, various Iranian leaders, and Trump. A search for "the new Hitler" and "Putin" turns up only 17,000 results and from what I can tell many of the linked stories criticize the formulation. Can you point to even two or three significant pundits who have called Putin "the new Hitler"?

    I'm also no expert on the subject of Hitler's economic policies, but I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing "the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies" is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It's true as far as it goes, but it doesn't go very far.

    As to all the claims about pre-modern Judaism, I can't say, but many of the practices and superstitions you cite don't seem very different from contemporaneous Christianity. And your dark musings on the lasting impact of the alleged centuries of inculcated "seething hatred" for Christians doesn't jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that's conspicuous in its absence.

    Germany and Italy were the only two developed countries that extricated themselves from the Great Depression without resorting to war. They did this primarily through massive, publicly-funded development of infrastructure, e.g., Hitler’s Autobahn and the related mass production of Volkswagens and Mussolini’s getting the railroads to run on time. Orwell, no fan of the Nazis, admitted that German youths were much healthier than British youths; the former had thrived under the economic and social policies of the Third Reich. Eisenhower, actually emulated Hitler when he became President. It’s rather obvious that the USA’s interstate highway system, which Eisenhower used as a tool to boost the postwar US economy, was modeled on the Autobahn system Eisenhower observed in occupied Germany.

    @Linh Dinh
    Joe Sobran's 1995 article "The Jewish Establishment" begins:

    In the early 1930s, Walter Duranty of the New York Times was in Moscow, covering Joe Stalin the way Joe Stalin wanted to be covered. To maintain favor and access, he expressly denied that there was famine in Ukraine even while millions of Ukrainian Christians were being starved into submission. For his work Duranty won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism.

    To this day, the Times remains the most magisterial and respectable of American newspapers.

    Now imagine that a major newspaper had had a correspondent in Berlin during roughly the same period who hobnobbed with Hitler, portrayed him in a flattering light, and denied that Jews were being mistreated — thereby not only concealing, but materially assisting the regime’s persecution. Would that paper’s respectability have been unimpaired several decades later?

    There you have an epitome of what is lamely called “media bias.” The Western supporters of Stalin haven’t just been excused; they have received the halo of victimhood for the campaign, in what liberals call the “McCarthy era,” to get them out of the government, the education system, and respectable society itself.

    Not only persecution of Jews but any critical mention of Jewish power in the media and politics is roundly condemned as “anti-Semitism.” But there isn’t even a term of opprobrium for participation in the mass murders of Christians. Liberals still don’t censure the Communist attempt to extirpate Christianity from Soviet Russia and its empire, and for good reason — liberals themselves, particularly Jewish liberals, are still trying to uproot Christianity from America.

    It’s permissible to discuss the power of every other group, from the Black Muslims to the Christian Right, but the much greater power of the Jewish Establishment is off-limits. That, in fact, is the chief measure of its power: its ability to impose its own taboos while tearing down the taboos of others — you might almost say its prerogative of offending. You can read articles in Jewish-controlled publications from the Times to Commentary blaming Christianity for the Holocaust or accusing Pope Pius XII of indifference to it, but don’t look for articles in any major publication that wants to stay in business examining the Jewish role in Communism and liberalism, however temperately.

    Power openly acquired, openly exercised, and openly discussed is one thing. You may think organized labor or the Social Security lobby abuses its power, but you don’t jeopardize your career by saying so. But a kind of power that forbids its own public mention, like the Holy Name in the Old Testament, is another matter entirely.
     

    But then Sobran says (bold is mine):

    There is an important anomaly here. The word “Jewish,” in this context, doesn’t include Orthodox or otherwise religious Jews. The Jews who still maintain the Hebraic tradition of millennia are marginal, if they are included at all, in the Jewish establishment that wields journalistic, political, and cultural power. Morally and culturally, the Orthodox might be classed as virtual Christians, much like the descendants of Christians who still uphold the basic morality, if not the faith, of their ancestors. Many of these Jews are friendly to Christians and eager to make common cause against the moral decadence they see promoted by their apostate cousins. Above all, the Orthodox understand, better than almost anyone else in America today, the virtues — the necessity — of tribalism, patriarchal authority, the moral bonds of kinship.

    The Jewish establishment, it hardly needs saying, is predominantly secularist and systematically anti-Christian. In fact, it is unified far more by its hostility to Christianity than by its support of Israel, on which it is somewhat divided. The more left-wing Jews are faintly critical of Israel, though never questioning its “right to exist” — that is, its right to exist on terms forbidden to any Christian country; that is, its right to deny rights to non-Jews.

    A state that treated Jews as Israel treats gentiles would be condemned outright as Nazi-like. But Israel is called “democratic,” even “pluralistic.”
     

    Bravo to Ron Unz, then, for pointing out that the anti-Christian and anti-goy strains in Jewish thinking are foundational:

    Obviously the Talmud is hardly regular reading among ordinary Jews these days, and I would suspect that except for the strongly Orthodox and perhaps most rabbis, barely a sliver are aware of its highly controversial teachings. But it is important to keep in mind that until just a few generations ago, almost all European Jews were deeply Orthodox, and even today I would guess that the overwhelming majority of Jewish adults had Orthodox grand-parents. Highly distinctive cultural patterns and social attitudes can easily seep into a considerably wider population, especially one that remains ignorant of the origin of those sentiments, a condition enhancing their unrecognized influence. A religion based upon the principal of “Love Thy Neighbor” may or may not be workable in practice, but a religion based upon “Hate Thy Neighbor” may be expected to have long-term cultural ripple effects that extend far beyond the direct community of the deeply pious. If nearly all Jews for a thousand or two thousand years were taught to feel a seething hatred toward all non-Jews and also developed an enormous infrastructure of cultural dishonesty to mask that attitude, it is difficult to believe that such an unfortunate history has had absolutely no consequences for our present-day world, or that of the relatively recent past.
     

    In this article we finally have the substantiation the jewish blood sacrifice is and was necessary for magik and religious ceremonies, and then Lihn comes along with a link to an article with a lying jew statement like:

    “Now imagine that a major newspaper had had a correspondent in Berlin during roughly the same period who hobnobbed with Hitler, portrayed him in a flattering light, and denied that Jews were being mistreated — thereby not only concealing, but materially assisting the regime’s persecution. Would that paper’s respectability have been unimpaired several decades later?”

    Sorry, if jewish neighbors had been murdering your children for thousands of years, then lying about it and then persecuting anyone who found out and wanted to put a stop to it, then those jews DESERVED EVERYTHING that those vile jewish talmudic rabbi’s managed to spit and project at Hitler.

    Child murdering jews, and all those jews who protect them, and all those jews who don’t go to the law to expose these child torturers and murderers, are culpable. In short, all jews have a width and breadth of guilt and shame that makes their beloved “Nazi’s” look like kindergarten teachers.

    This is a disingenuous sleight of hand which you have abetted. Even if unknowingly.

    The five most important books of the Old Testament are read through every year on a cycle. They are absolutely the most important literature.

    Recognising this fact disables Unz's insinuation. It renders his statement a pointless half-fact.

  167. “For the last two thousand years, Jews have almost invariably existed as small, relatively weak minorities living in the lands of others, whether Christian or Muslim, so a religious doctrine so unswervingly hostile to outsiders has naturally presented considerable obstacles for peaceful co-existence.”

    a) 95% of world Jewry are Khazar converts who did not convert till the 9th century and therefore they are not those whose ancestors were the ancient Hebrews. They are as European as the rest of the Europeans only whose religion is Judaism.

    b) I think the Jews of Muslims did not face hardly the hatred and animosity the Jews of the Christian West did. The white Jews of the West set themselves apart from the rest of society in the way they dressed, the language they spoke whereas the Jews of the Arab countries were indistinguishable from the rest of the Arabs, they looked like them, spoke the same language, sang the same music, danced Arabic dances and cooked Arabic foods. There was in fact peaceful coexistence among the Jews, Muslims and Christians of the Arab countries.

    c) I am wondering how Jews living in Canada or America or Australia can be considered to live in the countries of others? The Ashkenazi Jews have no other origin except for Europe and if they were dispersed, it was out of Khazaria and not out of Palestine. That has to be made crystal clear.

    Ron, I don't know if you've drunk your own koolaid or if this is some sort of bizarre grand experiment in creating a deranged and lunatic cult.

    There's a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived. The oscillating hot/cold and reasonable/unreasonable tone is the type of manipulation that I am sensitive to seeing, and reacting against.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you've already jumped into fantasy land.

    For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. The Talmud is not. It is instead a millenia old vast Jewish Wikipedia in which the most controversial stuff would be found in the commentson edits, the comments on comments on edits and so on and so on and so on.

    Were an alien to browse the internet message boards as you may have browsed the Talmud, they would make all sorts of unreal conclusions.

    I suspect that indeed the huge swelling in third world anti-Western resentment pre-9/11 may actually have been a result of middle class people in the third world getting connected and assuming Western peoples were entirely depraved and without any moral value. As time has passed, they have gained a context for this and their anti-Western feelings are incomparably lower, despite all of the wars.

    Tyron 2, perhaps you are confused about being a Jew. You sound more like a Karaite. This is what you get in Rabbinical Judaism concerning Talmud:

    https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/08/11/why-the-talmud-is-the-most-important-text-in-judaism/
    It is always assumed that the most important text of Judaism is the Torah. But while it is true that the Torah is uniquely revered as the essence of our faith identity — and elevated above all other texts as the unadulterated word of God — the primary text of Judaism is undoubtedly the Talmud.

    The Talmud is a remarkable compilation of ancient traditions that accompanied the Sinaitic Torah, collectively known as Torah-she’baal-peh, or the “Oral Torah.”

    http://jewishroots.net/library/anti_missionary_objections/does_the_talmud_take_precedence.html

    Raba made the following exposition: What is the purport of the Scriptural text: And, furthermore my son, be admonished: Of making many books etc.? My son, be more careful in [the observance of] the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah, for in the laws of the Torah there are positive and negative precepts; but, as to the laws of the Scribes, whoever transgresses any of the enactments of the Scribes incurs the penalty of death. In case you should object: If they are of real value why were they not recorded [in the Torah]? Scripture stated: ‘Of making many books there is no end’

    http://www.aish.com/atr/Torah_versus_Talmud.html

    So what is the Oral Torah? Its name derives from the fact that it was not allowed to be formally written down but had to be taught orally. It contains the explanations of the Written Torah. One cannot be understood without the other.

    https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/why-do-jews-study-talmud/

    his is one of the reasons that Talmud study for many people in the modern world is not a practical activity at all, but rather an important religious experience. Even in the past, for that matter, the main reason for the Talmud’s preeminence, the chief cause of its central role in Jewish history, was not practical at all. The Talmud was Torah . In a paradox that determined the history of Judaism, the Talmud was Oral Torah in written form, and as such it became the clearest statement the Jew could hear of God’s very word.

    Is Judaism possible w/o Talmud? Karaites did not accept Midrash or Talmud.

    Karaite Judaism holds every interpretation of the Tanakh to the same scrutiny regardless of its source, and teaches that it is the personal responsibility of every individual Jew to study the Torah, and ultimately decide personally its correct meaning. Karaites may consider arguments made in the Talmud and other works without exalting them above other viewpoints.

    Karaites believe they observe the original religion of Ancient Israel, as prescribed by God in the Tanakh and understood by the Israelites before the Pharisaic period. They do not accept later additions, such as the Talmud of Rabbinic Judaism, as divinely inspired. They place the ultimate responsibility of interpreting the Tanakh on each individual. Karaism holds every interpretation up to the same objective scrutiny regardless of its source.

    Karaites believe in one, eternal, omnipresent, incorporeal, and almighty God, Creator of the Universe, who gave the Tanakh to the Israelites through Moses and the Prophets. Karaites trust in Divine providence, and the majority hope for the coming of the Messiah.

    Karaites seem to be strict and do not circumvent rules by using Shabbos goys, so no light on Shabbat means no light.

    Nazis exempted Karaites form their anti-Jewish laws. Some Karaites were accused of collaboration with Nazis but at the same time some were helping to hide Jews from Nazis.

    Again, you need to say “Ashkenazi Jews” since the Arab Jews did not have “a seething hatred toward all non-Jews”. Arab Jewish children played together, Arab Jews attended Muslim wedding, funerals and other events – and vice versa. Mahmoud Abbas challenged anyone to show him incidents where Arab Jews were discriminated against for just being Jews and he said there were no such incidents. The fact that the more than 100 expulsions of Jews were out of European countries and not Arab countries is the best evidence there is that the European Jews were not hated for being Jews but for their conspiracy to undermine the nations using financial systems.

    What’s truly astounding to me is the large number of stepin fetchit shabbiest goyim in politics, media, universities, et al., who are almost as fanatical as the Jewish berserker types (to borrow Ron Unz’s description) in promoting everything which will destroy their own civilization. How, in God’s name, could they be oblivious to the kind of society they are promoting and the kind of society which their children will inherit?

  171. This is all very interesting, and I would hope that just observing the obvious would be enough for lights to go off in most people. All one has to do is listen to the Jewish media, comics, writers, activists, politicians, etc., to understand the obvious loathing that they have for others, mostly white Christians in the U.S. and Europe. I wouldn’t doubt that there is something sinister and dualistic in the Jewish religion, but it is extremely sad if finding that out is what it would take for non-Jews to understand that they are the declared enemies of Jews just for being alive. At this point, I’m not even sure that most American Christians would act if it were true that many Jews are Satanists.

    Non-religious Jews are often just as toxic as religious Jews, so the whole group and culture seems to be shot through with hostility. Since that’s the case, only an idiot would not oppose organized Jewry, Judaism, Jewish power, the Jewish culture and collective, and a large number of individual Jews. Being anti-Semitic is rational, whereas being anti-Christian, anti-White, anti-other, anti-European, on the part of Jews is, largely just an act of fanatical aggression, especially in America.

    Ron, I don't know if you've drunk your own koolaid or if this is some sort of bizarre grand experiment in creating a deranged and lunatic cult.

    There's a certain paint by numbers feel to the article that is plainly contrived. The oscillating hot/cold and reasonable/unreasonable tone is the type of manipulation that I am sensitive to seeing, and reacting against.

    Regardless, from the point at which you say that the Talmud takes precendence to the written Torah (Old Testament), you've already jumped into fantasy land.

    For example, the entire Torah is read out in services every year. The Talmud is not. It is instead a millenia old vast Jewish Wikipedia in which the most controversial stuff would be found in the commentson edits, the comments on comments on edits and so on and so on and so on.

    Were an alien to browse the internet message boards as you may have browsed the Talmud, they would make all sorts of unreal conclusions.

    I suspect that indeed the huge swelling in third world anti-Western resentment pre-9/11 may actually have been a result of middle class people in the third world getting connected and assuming Western peoples were entirely depraved and without any moral value. As time has passed, they have gained a context for this and their anti-Western feelings are incomparably lower, despite all of the wars.

    I knew two students of Jacob Neussner (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Neusner#Political_views) who planned on being Conservative Jewish rabbis. Over beers one night they told me a story – whether from Talmud, Midrash, Targum, or another source I cannot say. Several rabbis were arguing over a point of Torah. One finally said that if God himself came down and disputed his interpretation he would still hold by it. After a shocked silence, God spoke and commended the rabbi for his understanding of the law. My friends cited this as evidence that proper Jewish doctrine was that for Jews Talmudic interpretation was the final arbiter of correct behavior.

    The only thing which that story means is that we should always try to actively understand things rather than glibly taking whatever we instinctively land on as the first meaning as fact.

    This is the foundation of civilisation.

    It is good advice but it doesn't imply what you think it implies. It also implies that critically engaging as an individual with all religious texts is crucial. Indeed, the results of your critical engagement would actually be the most important.

    "When a ruling elite has limited connection to the population it controls, benevolent behavior is far less likely to occur"

    I have no opinion on the thesis itself (although the way it's phrased, it doesn't sound convincing), but are you implying that Leon Trotsky (for example), coming form an assimilated novorussian peasant family, had more 'limited connection' to the population than Nicholas II, or, say, Pyotr Stolypin?

    And if you do believe that this 'connection' is a function of religion of one's ancestors rather than one's real life experiences, then perhaps you'd care to explain why?

    Trotsky’s family had thirty house servants. He was a millionaire. His father was not a farmer of the land, he was a farmer of peasants, owning villages. As head of the party Lenin’s personal income was yearly in the millions also, in today’s dollars. Many people are out of touch with reality because they want to be.

    “Adding further credibility to the notion that Christianity was created as an anti-Jewish weapon. “

    This reminds me of one of John Carpenter’s lesser known horror movies, a 1987 gem called “Prince of Darkness”. In it, one of the characters makes a discovery that Jesus was a spirit (or possibly an alien!) sent to earth to warn it about and protect it from a very real and literal demon. The Church made the decision to keep this information under wraps, and convince its followers that things such as the Devil, Hell, and evil were abstract concepts rather than a very real manifestation.

    Although I have not seen Prince of Darkness since the early 90′s, I remember it being one of the top 3 scariest movies I had ever seen, up there with The Omen and The Shining. (The Exorcist being a slightly distant 4th.)

    Great article, Ron, but I must insert a complaint about the much ballyhooed chart that you included about labor compensation vs. labor productivity (since 1973). It suggests that worker productivity has progressed steadily, but worked compensation has not. Kevin MacDonald also has fallen for this chart.
    It suggests a “bills on the sidewalk” scenario under which capitalists can hugely profit for decades on end by employing and underpaying productive workers.

    The chart has two grave defects:
    It compares the labor productivity of the ENTIRE LABOR FORCE to compensation for private sector production and nonsupervisory workers
    It uses two different price indexes, one to measure real productivity and another to measure real compensation.

    Overall productivity has continued to progress, but, measured separately, the productivity of production and nonsupervisory workers has not–because, influenced by Jews, the culture rotted. The stagnation in pay that these workers have experienced reflects their stagnant productivity. There is no automatic, easy profit to be had by employing them.

    Ron, as a Jew raised in the Reform tradition, I can't speak to the claims about Talmudic Judaism. But your claims that "our media pundits regularly identify Putin as 'the new Hitler'" seems largely untrue. A quick Google search on "the new Hitler" turns up only 70,000 results, links that refer mostly to Saddam Hussain, various Iranian leaders, and Trump. A search for "the new Hitler" and "Putin" turns up only 17,000 results and from what I can tell many of the linked stories criticize the formulation. Can you point to even two or three significant pundits who have called Putin "the new Hitler"?

    I'm also no expert on the subject of Hitler's economic policies, but I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing "the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies" is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It's true as far as it goes, but it doesn't go very far.

    As to all the claims about pre-modern Judaism, I can't say, but many of the practices and superstitions you cite don't seem very different from contemporaneous Christianity. And your dark musings on the lasting impact of the alleged centuries of inculcated "seething hatred" for Christians doesn't jibe particularly well with the Jewish intermarriage rate, an actual verifiable statistic that's conspicuous in its absence.

    “I recall from an undergraduate history course that Hitler revived the German economy through massive deficit spending, budgets predicated on the coming wartime plunder. Citing “the tremendous success of Hitler’s peacetime economic policies” is like citing the tremendous success of the US occupation of Iraq in 2003. It’s true as far as it goes, but it doesn’t go very far.”

    “Coming wartime plunder” is what the jews were counting on when they declared war on Germany in 1933. Wartime plunder is what germany was paying to jewish banks in the form of reparations, when Hitler came to power and said Nein. So the jews started WWII in order to plunder Germany, France, Poland, and all of central Europe.

    I have been contending for weeks here at unz.com that jews, who like to consider themselves “smart”, are really as dumb as jackasses wearing blinders. A glaring example of their willful ignorance would be blood sacrifice, which the majority of jews think is, and Unz still hints at just to feed their willful denial, is a “Christian Superstition”.

    Even though their tribe has clearly regularly been murdering and torturing infants over the centuries and then trading their blood and organs for profit, Jews simply don’t want goyim to know that they know. Clearly, neither does Andrew Gilbert, a “Jew raised in the Reform tradition”, who is, typically for a heeb, afraid to even mention the jews greatest achievement: rituals and sacrifices with goyim infants. Hundreds of different types.

    If he really believed Blood Sacrifice is false, and an extreme slander, then Gilbert should have been indignant. Or, he knows but he lies. Like Eli Weasel’s “It happened in my mind”, or in Gilberts case “There was never blood sacrifice in my mind”.

    My. Well, offhand, I imagine my reaction will lie somewhere midway between the uncritical applause of the anti-semite brigade and the shocked denunciations of the guardians of political orthodxy.

    The comments I'm about to post are more or less haphazard. I merely wish to emphasize that I actually agree with most of what I read; I'm listing my points of dissent, not my points of agreement.

    First off, it's an exaggeration -- and a self-defeating one -- to say that the Russian Communists were 'overwhelmingly' Jewish. Disproportionately, certainly, and indeed, heavily, but not 'overwhelmingly.' Perhaps a third of the prominent figures were Jewish. Have half. The point is that Communism, while heavily Jewish, was also gentile.

    Second, the article gives the impression that there is some some kind of monolithic Judaism. That's obviously untrue: Jews are some of the most quarrelsome, dissent-prone folks around. The author is actually more representative of the average Jewish intellectual than he may think. Indeed, this compulsion to dissent -- rather than some sinister urge to reduce the goyim to misery -- may do much to explain the attraction revolutionary creeds hold for Jews.

    I'll also note that the monolithic Judaism paradigm fails in the face of the enormous intermarriage rate among Jewish men. If there is a Jewish plot, a good half of Jewish men are completely failing to do their duty.

    So that's about it. Revisionism -- of all kinds -- is good and useful. However, it usually goes too far. If the Jew as immaculately innocent and eternal victim paradigm is obviously inaccurate, it doesn't follow that the exact opposite must be the case.

    If it wasn't for Israel, I'd actually have no problem with Jews. I found myself confronting this when I decided to buy a camera from B&H Camera. I realized the firm is owned by Satmar Jews, who think that when the Messiah comes, all the bad gentiles will go to hell while all the good gentiles will be the slaves of Jews for all eternity.

    I thought about that for a bit, and eventually came to the conclusion that while their sentiment is hardly friendly, when the Messiah comes, we'll find out if they're right. In the meantime, they offer some excellent prices on cameras.

    Colin Wright—Appendix D to Robert Wilton’s The Last Days of the Romanovs (1920) lists the members of the Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party, the Extraordinary Commission and the Council of Commissars, along with their ethnicities. Wilton writes, ‘According to the data furnished by the Soviet Press, out of 566 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State, there were…457 Jews.’ The appendix begins on page 184, HERE.

    above you link to your Meritocracy article on Asian vs Jewish vs white (Gentile) admission at Harvard.

    Did you ever answer Nurit Baytch’s analysis that appeared to refute your article’s claims of absurd Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard?

    In addition, are you aware that later, after Baytch’s did her calculations, some of the annual Harvard Crimson surveys of incoming freshmen and graduating seniors give the number of self-reported Jewish whites at Harvard, and the number is much lower than what you stated in your Meritocracy article?

    As far as I can tell you were completely wrong about the level of Jewish representation at Harvard. Your accusations of Jewish admissions favoritism (the Protocols of the Elders of Harvard Square) are astonishing, very damning if true, and got very wide circulation on the internet. Yet there is no record (that I could find) of any substantive response from you to Baytch or any indication that you are even aware of the Jewish data in the Crimson surveys.

    So: did you (or anyone else) answer Baytch or address the data from the Harvard Crimson?
     
    Actually, I've responded to her total nonsense over and over again. But I suppose I might as well do so one more time, merely by republishing a previous lengthy comment of mine from a couple of months ago:

    http://www.unz.com/article/a-reply-to-jordan-peterson/#comment-2345137


    However, according to The Harvard Crimson’s Class of 2017 Freshman Survey, only 9.5% of Harvard freshmen identify their religious affiliation as Jewish.
     
    Ha, ha, ha. It’s nice to see that our good friend “Tyrion 2″ is doing his best to confirm my finding that Jews these days are not particularly bright, and perhaps providing some additional evidence that dim-wittedness is particularly strong among the fanatic ethnic-activist segment of Jewry, including himself.

    Okay, so he located an extremely helpful datapoint that 9.5% of the Harvard Class of 2017 are *religiously* Jewish. However, it only took me a few seconds to locate this Haaretz article:

    https://www.haaretz.com/jewish/jews-least-observant-int-l-poll-finds-1.5287579

    It notes that Jews are among the world’s *least* religious groups, and that worldwide only 38% of (ethnic) Jews follow the Jewish *religion*. Assuming that The Crimson survey is correct and Harvard Jews are typical of those worldwide, this would imply that 9.5% / 0.38 = 25%(!!!) of Harvard freshmen are *ethnically* Jewish, which by an astonishing coincidence is *exactly* the Hillel figure I was using. I think I’d call that a game-ending own-goal…

    Indeed, since religiosity is especially strong among ultra-Orthodox Jews who are very mediocre in their academic achievement, while America’s most academically elite groups—Jew or Gentile—tend to be among the least religious, this figure might even be an underestimate. Certainly back during my own Harvard days, I’d have been astonished if even 1/3 of the Jews I knew practiced “the Jewish religion.”

    Jewish-activists are notorious for playing these sorts of very slippery definitional games. For example, I wouldn’t be surprised if “Tyrion 2″ were to claim that there had never been a single “Jewish Communist.” How could there be, since Communists by definition practice no religion.
     
    Incidentally, having personally met that "Nurit Baytch" woman when I was giving a talk on my Meritocracy article at the University of Chicago Law School, she seemed an absolutely perfect example of the fanatic "Jewish berserker" type I was discussing in my article. And my Yale Law School lecture had quite a number of them in the audience.

    Otherwise, I'd like to thank many of the other commenters for their very kind words, and also catching a number of my careless typos, which I've now corrected.

    that “Nurit Baytch” woman

    “But your claims that “our media pundits regularly identify Putin as ‘the new Hitler’” seems largely untrue.”
    – How “largely?” The MSM has been on Clinton’s site and it broadcasted on many occasions Mrs. Clinton’ casual definition of Putin as “the new Hitler.” This is despite Clinton’s “leadership position” during the 2014 putsch in Kiev. The putsch has led to the revival of neo-Nazism in Ukraine. Add to that the Israeli government’s arming of the neo-Nazis (hey, Bibi Mielkovsky!) https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/rights-groups-demand-israel-stop-arming-neo-nazis-in-the-ukraine-1.6248727
    All this squealing from the nazi-hunters of Wiesenthal center and the ADL-affiliated thugs is just a noise to cover the stupendous immorality of zionists. The documented collaboration between zionists and neo-nazis is just another confirming evidence of the evil nature of Zionism. Had not Zionism preceded Nazism and served as a blueprint for the brownshirts?

    O boy this is pointless.

    You mischaracterized what Ron Unz said about the Old Testament by identifying the Torah as the Old Testament. I merely pointed that out, which you thought was "weaselly."

    I never said the Torah was less important than the Talmud. Many authorities say that it is; I really don't know if it is or not. But it stands to reason that the rest of the Old Testament is less important than the Talmud. Nor is that a controversial opinion, even if you personally don't enjoy the Talmud.

    Unz’s point was to insinuate into the reader’s mind that Judaism, contra popular perceptions, is actually alien to Christianity and that some weird canon called the Talmud is far more inportant than the Old Testament.

    This is a disingenuous sleight of hand which you have abetted. Even if unknowingly.

    The five most important books of the Old Testament are read through every year on a cycle. They are absolutely the most important literature.

    Recognising this fact disables Unz’s insinuation. It renders his statement a pointless half-fact.

    At best, everything else you have brought up is my fault for being unclear and a bit fuzzy in my expression. At worst, you have been arguing in bad faith in order to further irrational hatred of Jews.

    I am happy to accept either and, if the first, I am sorry. I am not so bright, as Ron likes telling me.

    There is some truth to the claim that the Talmud is more important than the Torah in Jewish religion - but the Torah remains hugely significant and is read and reread and studied every day and weekend, and it is in some sense primary. It is certainly interwoven with Jewish practice, high holidays, and life in general in a very integral way.

    There may be some extreme Hasidic sects which neglect the Torah completely, I wouldn't know. But that's certainly not typical.

    I don't think Unz is lying - he just isn't intellectually equipped to handle complex pre - modern material. He's a computer scientist by trade if I understand correctly - this will create certain mental limitations, just as the study of mathematics will.

    Such people tend to produce simplified linear narratives without much shade or nuance or intellectual complexity. Science, math, etc - these are more like practical trades than intellectual disciplines.

    But Unz's heart is surely in the right place.

    Back to the Talmud, all religions have extensive commentary without which they cannot be properly understood - again this is hardly unique to Jews! Muslims with their Hadiths, Christians with their vast theological corpus, and even Buddhist Sutras traditionally are not meant to be read without clarifying commentaries, which can be quite extensive.

    Primary sacred texts tend to be terse, aphoristic, poetic, contradictory, and highly ambiguous, often employing sacred language that is not immediately clear.

    A certain amount of mysticism is integral to a sacred texts - they are not computer manuals :)

    Trying to make sense of a pre modern culture using the categories of modern thought is bound to produce a caricature, or break down in incomprehension, or lead to charges of bad faith or ludicrous attempts to understand them in Darwinian terms as elaborate strategies of deception for materialistic gain.

    I think it's very obvious that you are minimizing the Talmud more than Ron is minimizing the Old Testament.

    Go back to my first comment, which Ron highlighted. MOST of the Old Testament comes after the Torah. That's what Ron was referring to when he said "most of the Old Testament."

    You have not given a straight answer on that point: is the Old Testament minus the Torah more important to traditional Jews than the Talmud?

    I gather you’re a Jew, but you don’t know much about Judiasm. Torah is just historical bible stories as in Christianity. Torah is for everyone including women and children and the secular.

    The Talmud is for real Jews, religious conservative to ultra men. It’s the most important thing. Religious men are supposed to read a little Talmud every day preferably with others so they can discuss it and argue about every word.

    It’s the essence of religious Judaism. And they really do it and get together on Saturday afternoons for the big discussion. Like some Protestants carry a bible around and read it at lunch some men carry Talmud around and read it every day and take it very seriously.

    I have zero doubt this is his motivation. But that is not necessarily a bad motivation, and one cannot remain stuck in resentment and spite forever. Most anti semitism has personal causes. I too soured on Jews as a result of bad personal experiences. But then I dealt extensively with ambitious whites, and regained perspective lol.

    As one of the only groups in the West that are still highly ambitious and motivated, one is bound to encounter much bad behavior among Jews. Ambition breeds bad behavior – this was as true among renaissance Italians and 18th empire building Britons as it is among Jews today. I forget which British lord declared that one cannot be great without being bad. That man understood life.

    But as personal feelings fade and intelligent perspective is restored, as wider experience and reading acquaints one with the horrors of European history, the Jewish situation loses its uniqueness as it gets situated in the wider human context, and is seen as nothing special.

    Most anti semitism has personal causes.


    If you are saying that most anti-Semitism springs from interpersonal interactions between the anti-Semite and a Jew, then I think that is manifestly incorrect. If you are saying that the anti-Semite views the behavior (real and imagined) of Jews as a personal threat, then I can agree.

    I am little confused by your first sentence. Do you mean that it could play absolutely no part in his motivation.

    What can “the horrors of European history” mean to one who holds cynicism as the stuff of wisdom? Gothic cathedrals?
    With Jewish enemies like Aaron B to refute him, Ron Unz needs not friends.

    @Jus' Sayin'...
    I knew two students of Jacob Neussner (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Neusner#Political_views) who planned on being Conservative Jewish rabbis. Over beers one night they told me a story - whether from Talmud, Midrash, Targum, or another source I cannot say. Several rabbis were arguing over a point of Torah. One finally said that if God himself came down and disputed his interpretation he would still hold by it. After a shocked silence, God spoke and commended the rabbi for his understanding of the law. My friends cited this as evidence that proper Jewish doctrine was that for Jews Talmudic interpretation was the final arbiter of correct behavior.

    The only thing which that story means is that we should always try to actively understand things rather than glibly taking whatever we instinctively land on as the first meaning as fact.

    This is the foundation of civilisation.

    It is good advice but it doesn’t imply what you think it implies. It also implies that critically engaging as an individual with all religious texts is crucial. Indeed, the results of your critical engagement would actually be the most important.

    Thank you Mr. Unz for your hard work in putting this article together. I'm glad you had mentioned the Organ Harvesting Disease that infects Jewish Voodoo Practices, The Jewish role in the Black Slave Trade, and the physical spitting upon Christians by Jews. These topics are rarely mentioned today due to the suppressive nature of Jewish Media control and the bought off USSA/Western Politicos. Another Oddity of the Jewish Religion (only naughty and consistently problematic creatures need to have 613 Commandments):

    MAJOR RED PILLS

    I would like to take the readers on a little journey a bit further back in time in regards to the origination of the Jewish Religion, as well as, Christianity and Islam. First a short video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIA7l0YWlMg

    Here is the article and Author from which this originates ( I would encourage the readers to read the other well researched and very enlightening articles by scholar, Ashraf Ezzat):
    https://ashraf62.wordpress.com/2016/07/24/why-are-the-pyramids-not-mentioned-in-the-bible/

    And another by John Kaminski:
    https://www.johnkaminski.org/index.php/essays-by-john-kaminiski-american-writer-and-critic/holocausting-humanity/9-the-first-jewish-lie

    The understanding of the above information has PROFOUND implications on the above three religions. Most will deny and scurry off into their "Safe Spaces" while continuing to live in the "Blue Pill" world and deserve to be scolded by The Wise Prophet, Mr. T: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sQELbOflO4 The few that have retained a spine and a desire for accurate historical truths will be on their way to the "Red Pill" world and out of the Matrix Mind Control Mechanisms. Similar to 9-11. If one major part of the story stinks, then the rest stinks. Simple.

    Some sagely wisdom from Comedian George Carlin RIP (I would rename the video Organized Religions are Bullsh*t):

    The revisionist history practices and manipulative nature of the Jews (real and fake) are easily verified by any who have eyes to see and minds to think.

    Free your mind and your arse will follow.

    Usually it is said that Mohammad copied all the stories from Bible but got them wrong. So, everyone dismisses Mohammad stories.

    For example, Kabbah in Mecca, Saudi Arabia was build by Abraham and his son Ismael. Where is Egypt and where is Saudi Arabia. How did Abraham wound up in Saudi Arabia?

    In “Misquoting Jesus” the author claims that he has taken the effect of Greek Language on the New Testament. Why is New Testament not in Hebrew or Aramaic?

    It is claimed that Torah, the first five books in TaNaKh (Old Testament) were given to Moses in written form. The Semitic language including Hebrew were not evolved enough to be put anything in written form.

    In fact, when the Quran was revealed, no Semitic Language were evolved enough including Arabic, to put the Quran in written form. The first Quran which was put in written form by the Third Caliph Usman was in Old (Modern) Arabic without vowels and lacked dots for the letters. For example, letter “B” has a dot below the moon, and letter “N” has a dot over the moon, so how can one distinguish between letters. No dots in the first written Quran.

    Seventy five years after Mohammad demise the Quran was put in proper Arabic called, Quranic Arabic or Classical Arabic. TaNaKh until 12th centuries only had constant words without vowels, just like the first written Quran. The vowels added to TaNaKh through 12th to 15th century from Quranic Arabic.

    Jesus spoke Aramaic to his disciples not Hebrew. Hebrew was revived in early 20th century from Arabic.

    Jesus spoke in Greek too. Some Apostles had Greek names (Andrew, Philip). Jesus gave Simon a Greek name: Petros!
