Gaza Massacre: What's missing?
By Michael Hoffman
www.RevisionistHistory.org, January 25, 2009
The actions of the Israeli military in Gaza --mass murder and constantly lying about it--are derived from the rabbinic law ("halakha") of Orthodox Judaism, says Michael Hoffman
This writer has the sorrowful distinction of having observed and reported more than twenty-six years' worth of Israeli massacres of Arabs, beginning with Beirut in the summer of 1982, when Ariel Sharon's military terror-bombed schools, hospitals, apartment blocs and nursing homes in an incredible orgy of violence. There were many more Israeli atrocities to follow: in Qana, Jenin, Gaza 2006, and of course carpet-bombing throughout Lebanon in 2007.
Then as now, an impotent Arab "street" along with leftist intellectuals and protesters in Europe, issued demands and furiously paraded with "smash Zionism" placards. The UN met in special session and "deplored" Israeli actions. Investigations were called for, and in Jenin, "war crimes investigations" were demanded, which, in the case of Jenin, were rebuffed by Shimon Peres, who defiantly declared, "No one judges Israel!"
As usual the Israelis in Gaza are taking a crap on an entire people, along with the infrastructure of Gaza's government, housing, educational system and their fire-fighting and medical facilities. This is not just an attack on Hamas, but as we saw in Jenin, on the Palestinian people's ability to govern, educate, house and protect themselves.
As always happens when these Talmudic war crimes transpire, Israeli hasbara (propaganda) operations go into high gear, and we are seeing the pattern repeat in Gaza now. Every single atrocity is explained away as either collateral damage or "terrorists using the civilian population as a shield." By that standard the US government was "shielding itself" in the Twin Towers in New York City in September, 2001.
Imagine if in Oakland, California, African-American guerrillas fired rockets at Sacramento in protest over the killing of a black man by transit cops. In response, the California National Guard attacks an all-black school in Oakland, slaughtering 40 children because the rocket-firings by the militants took place "near" the school. This is what occurred at the United Nations school in Gaza after Hamas fighters allegedly fired mortars in the vicinity. Would the world forgive California for the deaths of the children in Oakland because black militants had been firing near the school? Such a racist devaluation of the lives of the black children collectively punished for acts of armed resistance by guerrilla fighters in their neighborhood would appall and shock the world.
The racist component of the devaluation of Palestinian life so evident in Gaza since Dec. 27 is barely mentioned because it tends to show that the "Jewish" state is sick at its core and any such admission would tend toward an investigation into the spiritual and religious roots of the Zionist pathology which, patently, are in the religion of Orthodox Judaism, which institutionalizes the enshrinement of the humanity of the souls of Judaics while derogating the humanity of non-Judaic souls.
To counter any serious investigation of Zionism's Orthodox rabbinic patrimony, in the last stage of hasbara surrounding any massacre by Judaics in the Middle East, we witness the phenomenon of "Jews Against Zionism" and "Rabbis for Peace," intended to deflect attention away from the Mishnah, Gemara, Mishneh Torah, Shulchan Aruch and other sacred rabbinic texts which teach that when necessary, non-Judaics may be killed with impunity because they are not fully human.
Judaic protests against Israeli violence are commendable when they also condemn the roots of Israeli violence as found in the ideological doctrines of Chazal (the "sages") of Orthodox Judaism, or at the very least when not denying those roots. For example, to their credit, in the Guardian newspaper in Britain on January 10, over seventy Judaic activists wrote to condemn Israeli atrocities in Gaza. While they did not trace the roots of Zionist mass murder to the Talmud, neither did they deny it. They did, however, make an astute and damaging comparison between Governor-General Hans Frank in Nazi-occupied Poland and Matan Vilnai, the Israeli defense minister who actually spoke last February of perpetrating a shoah (extermination) in Gaza.
The hasbara does emerge in statements by Judaics such as Alexei Sayle who told a crowd of demonstrators in London, "It is long past time to stop allowing the state of Israel to call itself the 'Jewish state."
The masters at this sort of disinformation are the Neturei Karta sect of Hasidic Judaism who were received by the Iranian President at the revisionist conference in Tehran and who parade around the US and Europe condemning Zionism as being against "the Torah" (that's the Torah Shebeal Peh, the traditions of the rabbis, not the Torah of Yahweh, which the rabbis nullify).
Neturei Karta and the larger Satmar body of Hasidim, who are also anti-Zionist, are a function of the Cryptocracy at one of its highest levels of operation. The many befuddled and ignorant goyim who cooperate with these groups in disseminating the propaganda that the rabbinic Torah (Talmud) is a document of peace and love inimical to Zionism and the Israeli state, serve to rescue the religion of Judaism from the odium it so richly deserves as the ideological engine that drives the Israeli war machine.
Those who support and promote the anti-Zionist Orthodox rabbinic movements should at least be aware that they are backing 1700 years of Talmudic Judaic dogma as it existed from the aftermath of the Bar Kokhba revolt in the second century A.D. through the nineteenth century. After their disastrous ancient military uprising against Rome, the rabbis taught that Judaism should, until the coming of the Moshiach ("Messiah"), advance almost exclusively through stealth, guile and the armies of the goyim. This "Neturei Karta" style Judaism was just as much the enemy of Christendom as Orthodox Judaism is today. The difference being that in our time the majority of Orthodox rabbis believe the most effective road to dominion is through the teachings of Moses Hess, Rabbi Kook and the "religious Zionism" that came into full flower in the twentieth century and which advocated the development of Judaic armies and the projection of Judaic military power.
The Neturei Karta rabbis are perpetrating a hoax. Zionism is just as authentically Talmudic as Neturei Karta Judaism, with the exception being that whereas Neturei Karta Judaism prefers camouflage and deceit, the religious Zionism of the Israeli state favors camouflage, deceit and Judaic military power.
As the Israeli army and air force brazenly butcher Gazans in a bloodbath on the world stage, the Arab world and the West are repeating their useless pattern of issuing the same tired and impotent protests and resolutions. Effective action and remedies are never put into place: the Israelis have too strong a hold on western institutions to be dragged before European courts for war crimes' prosecution as the Christian Serbs were, or to become the target of ironclad national "divestment" and "boycott" campaigns, as were the whites of South Africa.
This Israeli hold on the West can only be weakened and eventually dissolved if the world will come to view the connection between Orthdox Judaism and Zionism the way it perceives the connection between Islamic Wahabist fundamentalism and Al Qaeda.
The actions of the Israeli military in Gaza --mass murder and constantly lying about it--are derived from the rabbinic law ("halakha") of Orthodox Judaism, as documented in this writer's book, Judaism Discovered. This is the missing element in the analysis of Israeli war crimes and deception. The "sages," from Rabbi Shimon ben Yohai to Rabbi Moses Maimonides onward, teach the followers of Orthodox Judaism to lie and, when it is deemed politic, to slaughter dehumanized non-Judaics. Until this is widely understood, the Israelis will massacre civilian populations repeatedly and with impunity, as the history of the Zionist state, from Deir Yassin to Qana, Jenin and Zeitoun, demonstrates.
