The Heart of The Matter


In truth, this doctrine of European genocide goes back much further — all the way to A.D. 70 when Titus employed an army of Germanian mercenaries to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. The sparse remnant of Idumean/Judeans remaining swore vengeance upon Europeans generally and Germans especially. Marx just institutionalized the previously existing religious commitments of the Jews.

Anti-Semitism Defined?

Here’s an interesting bit of Facebook dialogue inwhich the term ‘Anti-Semitism’ is rendered as incoherent as the term ‘Racism’. I liked it.

ME: Michael Chertoff’s family were Russian Jews; and in Russian the name “Chertoff” actually means, “devil”.

FRIEND A: To be specific, it translates to “Son of the Devil”.

ME: Jesus said:

“You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stayed not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

… connection?

FRIEND B: Hi, [Ehud], please don’t take this the wrong way, but I do wonder, are you anti-semitic?

ME: To be honest, —–, I’m not even sure what the term means. Currently, Jewish organizations of every stripe are in agreement that “the New Testament constitutes classic anti-semitism”. If that’s the definition of ‘anti-semitic’, that just means that most Jews hate Jesus and his followers.

FRIEND B: Where did you get your quoted text, truthtellers.org? There is a world of difference between hatred and disagreement, and personally, I find that entire statement absurd. All the Jewish people I know (and I know many) live their lives like anybody else, worship in their own way and don’t concern themselves with hating Jesus or his followers.

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of anti-semitism is: hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group.

ME: Well, Abe Foxman is the one who most recently defined the New Testament as ‘anti-semitic’:

“… [T]he anti-Jewish rhetoric that mars several books of the Christian New Testament has been shown to reflect not historical fact but the rivalry at the time the books were written between Jews who followed Jesus and those who did not…Although it is supposedly motivated by love for the Jews, this idea [that Jews should be converted] is inherently anti-Semitic in that it implicitly denigrates the value of Jewish belief.” (Foxman, NEVER AGAIN? THE THREAT OF THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM)

But he’s far from alone on the issue. Really, its the standard position of Orthodox, Reform, and Conservative Rabbis alike.

The recognition of this as the official position of Judaism is in fact so standardized that the U.S. State Department’s new “Department of Global Anti-Semitism[‘s]” 40 page report on Anti-semitism condemns the New Testament on the grounds that it is “inherently anti-semitic”.

But your Mirriam-Webster definition begs an interesting question: In Hebrew it is the classic quandary of “mehu yehudi(?)” — who is a Jew? Since the modern Jewish world is comprised roughly of six separate racial groups, its hard to speak of them as a distinct “race”. And seeing as how most self-identifying Jews are actually Atheists, or non-religious, they cannot exactly be categorized as a religious identity either.

With these facts in mind, I can safely say that I do not discriminate against Jews as a race (most of them are Ashkenazi anyway — Caucasian, generally speaking) and neither do I discriminate against them as a religion, because they have no single religion.

I do however forthrightly admit to discriminating against JudaISM because I’m a serious Christian. I also freely admit to opposing the radical liberalism that self-described Jews promulgate in America and Europe.

This Ashkenazi tells the truth, people who call themselves ‘Jews’ are monolithically opposed to our Christian and American ideals:

He well admits that Judaism and the people who self-identify as Jews are naturally hostile to all races, nations and religions. The most noteworthy prerogatives of the people known as ‘Jews’ are infiltration, subversion, and destruction. Whatever ‘Jews’ are, they certainly aren’t friendly to our race, our country, nor to our King, Jesus. Such has been the case atleast since the Idumean infiltration and overthrow of Judea.
