The roots of anti-Judaism

Reader comment on item: Anti-Semitism Evolves

Submitted by Marcos Berenstein (Brazil), Feb 22, 2005 at 00:53

Well,it seems that I've hit someone's Achilles's heel,didn't I? I've said that Jews at first were persecuted for refusing to adore man-made, gold, brass, silver or whatever material,idols representing pagan,human-sacrifice doers's "gods", such as the Egyptian, Hellenic, Roman, Babylonian, Persian or Assyrian ones.

Jews said "HECK,NO". And they paid dearly for that, yes they surely did...
"Where're your gods,oh,Jews?" They kept asking ourselves. The answer, simple as it was and still is,made them furious,for the Jewish explanation was beyond their comprehension.

After butchering thousands of Jews throughout Judaea and Samaria, not satisfied with the utter destruction they've wrecked, the Romans did CHANGE the very names of this land...thus,they've re-named it as "PALAESTINA". Jerusalem was also re-named as "AELIA CAPITOLINA"...Jews were KICKED OUT..and forbidden to come back.

Still,the pagans from Rome still weren't satisfied.They' ve crucified some 250,000 Jews...INCLUDING ONE OF THEM...TA-DA!!!!...YES...ONE of them...JESUS.

But today, the only one remembered is HE. The other 249,999 Jews who died in that vicious way...No Sir.They were only mere Jews,thus not entitled of pity,sorrow.

Yes.CATHOLICISM is the main source of all diatribes propagated against my people,the Jewish People.From POISONING WELLS,BEING RESPONSIBLE OF THE PLAGUE THAT DECIMATED 1/3 OF EUROPEAN POPULACE BETWEEN
1348 and 1351, KILLING CHRISTIAN CHILDREN IN ORDER TO USE THEIR BLOOD TO MAKE MATZOT...and this list goes on and on...

I won't even comment about the Inquisition... that was perpetrated by WHOM??? Yes,another 10 points for you!! CATHOLICISM.
Nevertheless,in 1517 a dude called MARTIN LUTHER was building a new religion, based on the Gospels,but different from Catholicism. He protested against the Church's attitude of SELLING REAL-ESTATE IN THE HEAVEN...They were building
another cathedral in Germany and they needed money badly...THEY'VE GOT IT!!!

Mr.Luther tried (unsuccessfully,of course)and convert Jews to his newly-founded faith and as he desisted from it,he published a book that was a watershed in the history of the ANTI-JUDAISM (a.k.a. "anti-semitism")..."DER JÜDEN UND SIE LÜGEN"
(The Jews and their Lies),written by no less than the founding father of Germany's principal faith,the Lutherans.COULD THAT BOOK HAVE SOME KIND OF INFLUENCE in the events to come?

In the German case especifically,YES.Some 40% of Germans are Lutherans. It is very likely that Hitler himself could've be inspired by Luther's book when he wrote in 1925/1926 his malevolent "MEIN KAMPF", at Landsberg's prison.

I was criticized for being terribly BLUNT. But History,my friends is blunter.

The Gospel that said that JEWS WERE TO BLAME,as a matter of fact, changed it all, for us, Jews, of course. Since then,we're obliged to wear funny, distinctive hats, shoes, clothing...to live in GHETTOES...We've got denied access to universities, to be landowners...

Today we are TOLERATED (barely), not ACCEPTED. If everything I've said is untrue, please, come forward and elaborate but only on historic base, not wishful thinking.

You can say,"ok,then. We did it. But it was in the past"...PAST??? In Spain,the Inquisition was OFFICIALLY CLOSED ONLY IN 1975!!Portugal and Spain only established diplomatic relations with Israel in 1986, because the European Union obliged them to do so!The VATICAN only very recently recognized Israel, and now it admitted that only saved Jewish children during the Holocaust to BAPTIZE them and prevent them from being returned to their parents!

Only in 1965 the Vatican said that Jews weren't to blame for having killed Jesus, but before that,they prayed "FOR THE PERFID JEWS"...

The Muslims ADOPTED the CATHOLIC/CHRISTIAN ANTI-JUDAIC MYTHOLOGY, whether at cartoons depicting Jews as greedy,hooked-nosed fiends,or at their TV shows,where Jews grabs children to various malignant purposes.

WHERE DO YOU THINK THEY BORROWED THESE UNEARTHLY CONCEPTS? Yes! More 10 points for you....

Today, ANTI-ZIONISM is just another kind of ANTI-JUDAISM, for Zionism is the fullfillment of Jewish political, nationalistic, territorial aspirations.To deny that right, is about the same to deny our very survival. Period. We are a NATION. Zionism restored the Jewish Nation. And restored it FOR GOOD.

I am proud of being 110% JEWISH and I do support Zionism, a duty of every red-blooded Jew.
