Spews Hatred of Christ, Christians
by Willis A. Carto
throughout the Talmud, the founding document of rabbinic Judaism
in late antiquity, can be found quite a few references to Jesus
-- and they're not flattering. The Talmudic stories make fun of
Jesus' birth from a virgin, fervently contest his claim to be the
Messiah and Son of God, and maintain that he was rightfully executed
as a blasphemer and idolater. They subvert the Christian idea of
Jesus' resurrection and insist he got the punishment he deserved
in hell -- and that a similar fate awaits his followers.
you shocked by these claims? Did you consider what you've read to
be "rank anti-Semitism" or "vicious hatred"?
Well, if you did, then you've just applied those labels to words
taken directly from the promotional and introductory material on
the flyleaf of a new book -- Jesus in the Talmud -- by
a distinguished scholar, Dr. Peter Schafer, Director of the Program
in Judaic Studies at Princeton University and professor of Judaic
studies in a chair endowed by billionaire American Jewish philanthropist
Ronald O. Perelman, a long-time generous patron of Jewish causes.
And the publisher of the book is no less than the Princeton University
Press, which has never been accused as a purveyor of anti-Semitic
himself is highly regarded in the academic world and widely-published
in the arenas of Jewish religious and historical literature. So
now comes Shafer with a 210-page book which affirms -- beyond question
-- that longtime Christian and Muslim critics of the Talmud were
right when they said that the Talmud does teach filthy and hateful
things about Christ. Muslims and Christians have been offended for
thousands of years by those hateful teachings and -- indeed, let
it be said -- one of the primary causes of anti-Jewish attitudes
throughout history has been the negative reaction to the Talmud's
ironically, although Judaism's holiest book has devoted itself to
smearing Christ, his beloved mother, Mary, and all of Christ's teachings,
the mass media in America never mentions this fact when discussing
the causes of anti-Semitism. In fact-quite distinctly-the media
prefers to focus on alleged anti-Jewish notations in the Christian
New Testament and in the Islamic Koran (which, sadly unbeknownst
to many Christians, holds Jesus Christ in high regard, very much
in contrast to the Talmud).
years, Jewish groups screamed when anyone dared to openly discuss
the vile nature of much of what appears in the Talmud, which is
the Jewish religious code (Judaism's governing body of religious
and ethical standards) about which most non-Jews have no understanding.
Christians mistakenly believe the myth that the Old Testament is
as central to Judaism as it is the origins of Christianity, when,
in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. The Talmud and
other mystical works (unknown to Christians) are considered far
more important in the eyes of Jewish scholars.
with Dr. Schafer's book, there's "mainstream" proof defenders
of the Talmud have been dissembling. This fascinating (and disturbing)
book is "must" reading for those who dare to delve into
the controversial arena of political Zionism and who want to be
armed with factual evidence regarding the weird world of the Talmud.
But be warned: if you are a committed Christian, you may be deeply
offended by the disgusting comments about Christ that appear in
Judaism's holiest writings.
