Jewish Week’s recent piece, "Small-Town Palin Big Problem for Jews" (9/11/08), says of Sarah Palin's Christian/conservative populist ideals: ''Jewish voters have traditionally been turned off by such values.” Former New York Mayor Ed Koch, reflective of Jewish liberalism, says, "Governor Palin scares the hell out of me."
Most Americans unquestioningly believe America is the product of a “Judeo-Christian tradition” of upright morals and values. Yet statistics say that most American Jews support a liberal, anti-Christian agenda. Polls show a possible 87 percent of American Jewish voters helped elect the predominantly pro-homosexual Democratic majority in the US House of Representatives (See, Jewish Week article). The American Jewish community boldly backs liberal priorities including a federal hate crimes law, homosexual rights, abortion, etc. On these issues the Jewish community could not be more at loggerheads with evangelicals.
Why? This article gives a brief overview of Jewish history and aspirations over the past 2,600 years. This overlooked history helps explain why most Jews are liberal today.
Jewry in the West
Following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, and later failure of the Bar Cochba rebellion, all Jews in Palestine dispersed throughout the ancient world. Nearly a millennium later in the 11th century AD, the populous Jewish descendants of the tribe of Judah (exiled to Babylon 1,600 years earlier), were expelled from Babylon. Regretfully leaving their second "new promised land," perhaps millions of Jews spread through North Africa and the Mediterranean, clear into Spain. In Spain, Jewish learning and culture blossomed under Muslim protection.
But after expulsion in 1492, "Sephardic" (Spanish) Jews moved into the nations of Western Europe. Closeted in Talmudic racial exclusivity, they remained relatively pure descendants of the ancient Jews of Judea and Babylon.
"Jewry" in the East
Westerly migration of Jews from Palestine and Babylon is only half the modern Jewish story.
In the 9th century A.D., the central Eurasian nation of Khazaria contained possibly several million Gentile "Khazars." They converted to Judaism! Soon forgetting they were Gentile, these proselytes grew as passionately devoted to the Talmud, and especially Zohar (Kabbalah), as authentic Jews in the west. The Khazar converts were also driven westward where they laid the foundation for vast "Ashkenazi" populations of "Jews" in Poland, Eastern Europe and Russia. (See, The Khazars: Do They Destroy God’s Plan for the Jews?)
By the 17th century, authentic Jews in France, Germany, England, Holland, etc. were well adjusted to Christian civilization. Though often persecuted, they generally benefited from its advantages and influence. In contrast, "Jews" of Eastern Europe knew virtually nothing of the west. Backward, illiterate, and isolated, most Ashkenazim, even as late as the mid-19th century, lived in a narrow world of Talmudic self-righteousness and anti-Gentile bigotry. Their lives were darkened by every kind of occultry and superstition from Kabbalah’s magical and revolutionary visions.
Throughout the Renaissance, western Jews heard of vast numbers of eastern European Jews but knew almost nothing about them. By the 16th century, relations were established. German Jews and Polish Ashkenazi began to intermarry.
Jews Move into the Modern World
Toward the end of the 18th century, broad characteristics of Western and Eastern Jewry emerged. In the west—influenced by Moses Mendelssohn and the Reform movement—Jews began to strongly identify with the working class. They considered the religious, monarchial, capitalist classes to be exploiters. Meanwhile, Eastern European Jews remained enthralled by Kabbalah’s mystical dreams of messianic world domination.
In the decades preceding the French Revolution in 1789, Ashkenazi charlatans and political intriguers (such as Jacob Frank) migrated west from Poland and joined Jewish Kabbalists (Faulk, St. Germaine, Cagliostro, and the possibly Jewish Adam Weishaupt) in the west. Together they forged Illuminism, an ultra-secret attempt to undermine Christian civilization. Believing Christian/capitalistic society must be overthrown to hasten world rule by a Jewish Messiah, they infused European freemasonry with this sinister goal. 1
Jewish academic authorities, such as the Jewish encyclopedias, boast of the leadership and organizational genius provided by 19th century Jews to the many proto-socialist revolutions throughout Europe. Proclaiming "liberty, equality and fraternity" to all oppressed people, Jews from both west and east merged to create what we now know as both socialism and liberalism.
Jews Create Liberalism in America
In the latter part of the 19th century, massive numbers of Jews from Western and Eastern Europe immigrated to the United States. Many Marxist Jews flooded into America as a result of persecution by the Czar and after their abortive 1905 Jewish-led revolution in Russia. They were subsidized and transplanted throughout America by Jewish financial magnate Jacob Schiff (who also financed the Bolshevik revolution). The Jewish Encyclopedia says such Jews became “peddlers of socialism” and “pioneers of the socialist parties” in their newly adopted land. 2
Jewish socialists and communists were embraced and welcomed into Roosevelt's “New Deal.” American Jewish high finance was the extension of Jewish international banking. It united the private Jewish-dominated Federal Reserve with the goals of the Rothschilds, Warbergs, and other Jewish banking houses of Europe. 3 Jewish immigrants from Germany and Eastern Europe also created the Hollywood film industry and radio and TV mega-media. (See, Jews Confirm Big Media Is Jewish) Boosted by the Roosevelt administration, Jews and American liberalism became synonymous.
American Jewry was thus cast into a mold of pro-liberal, anti-Christian attitudes that remain to this moment. (See, Jewish Activists Created Communism)
Jewish Aversion to Palin
This helps explain the fear and suspicion Sarah Palin instills in most Jews. The Jewish Week describes her as combining a “blend of small-town populism, strong evangelical faith' and 'long-time commitment to the issues of the religious right.” These are basically the same core values which Jewish progressives have opposed over at least the past two centuries.
Christians certainly do share the upright values of the Old Testament. Yet moral unity with the Jewish people ended when they demanded that Christ be crucified. Since then, it is hard to imagine two groups of people with fewer shared values.
Once, when I was interviewed by radio talk host Danette Daniels, she exclaimed that Judaism and Christianity are so very similar and close, it’s a tragedy that Jews and Christians stand apart.
No real distance? To say that rejection of Jesus Christ, and vehement opposition to His gospel, doesn’t distance Christians and Jews is like saying there is no real distance between the earth and the moon.
- This Kabbalist/Masonic onslaught is documented in exhaustive detail in British historian Nesta Webster's Secret Societies and Subversive Movements. Webster was greatly admired by Sir Winston Churchill, undoubtedly fortifying his bold statements in The Illustrated Sunday Herald, Feb. 8, 1920, about Jewish origins of Bolshevism and desire to bring in Messianic rule by subversion of Christian civilization.
- The Jewish Encyclopedia, "Socialism," p. 804. The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia’s article on "Socialism," amounts to a recruitment ad for socialism. It explains that socialism today is but the continuation of the ancient Hebrew religion which it says was "a continuous protest against the increasing disregard for the law on the part of the ruling classes and against the proletarianization of the lower classes." (p. 583) It affirms that since Biblical times, Jews have fought for the oppressed (the proletariat) in a class struggle which Jews believe will someday result in an entire world free from the class oppression which is inherent in capitalism.
Having described the origins of socialism in "Jewish messianic feeling," the article elaborates on the saturation level involvement of Jews in socialism during the last hundred years.
Of course, there is no criticism of either socialism or communism in any of the Jewish encyclopedias; just the opposite. This article upholds socialism as one of the major Jewish contributions to civilization and to the ultimate redemption of the Jewish people. With this in mind, we may perceive why the great majority of Jews today are liberals and why Jewish controlled organizations have a vested interest in promoting and protecting liberalism.
- On December 15, 1931 Rep. Louis T. McFadden, who for more than 10 years served as chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee in the House of Representatives, said: “The Federal Reserve Board and banks are the duly appointed agents of the foreign central banks of issue and they are more concerned with their foreign customers than they are with the people of the United States. The only thing that is American about the Federal Reserve Board and Banks is the money they use…” On June 10, 1932, McFadden said in an address to the Congress: “We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks…Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are United States government institutions. They are not government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers…The Federal Reserve Banks are the agents of the foreign central banks…In that dark crew of financial pirates, there are those who would cut a man’s throat to get a dollar out of his pocket…Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its powers, but the truth is the Fed has usurped the government. It controls everything here (in Congress) and controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will…When the Fed was passed, the people of the United States did not perceive that a world system was being set up…A super-state controlled by international bankers, and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure!”
Sen. Barry Goldwater wrote in his book, "With No Apologies:" "Does it not seem strange to you that these men just happened to be CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and just happened to be on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve that absolutely controls the money and interest rates of this great country. A privately owned organization …which has absolutely nothing to do with the United States of America."
David Allen Rivera, in his excellent overview of the Federal Reserve conspiracy says, “R.F. McMaster, who published a newsletter called The Reaper, through his Swiss and Saudi Arabian contacts was able to find out which banks held a controlling interest in the Reserve. The Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers Bank of Paris; Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy; Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam; Lehman Brothers Bank of New York; Kuhn Loeb and Co. Bank of New York; Chase Manhattan Bank of New York; and Goldman, Sachs of New York. These interests control the Reserve through about three hundred stockholders.” (The above were taken from David Allen Rivera’s article, "The Federal Reserve Act Final Warning: A History of the New World Order")
