Top Rabbi Says Gentiles Exist to Serve Jews:
A Reply By Rev Ted Pike
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, October 25, 2010
For centuries, critics of modern Judaism’s most sacred Scriptures, the Talmud and Zohar (Kabbalah), have charged that Gentiles are viewed by Talmudic Judaism as beasts of burden meant to serve Jews. The world has dismissed these critics as “anti-Semites.” Society and most Christians have unquestioningly accepted the official Jewish claim that the "exalted ethics of Judaism" exclude such bigoted racism.
Yet this week, one of modern Israel’s greatest rabbis confirmed every “anti-Semitic” claim. The Jewish Telegraph Agency says:
Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said that non-Jews exist to serve Jews, in his weekly Saturday night sermon. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi [Arabic, meaning lord or master] and eat,” he said to some laughter.
Yosef, the spiritual head of the Shas party and the former chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel also said that non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.
“With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” said the rabbi…
Echoed by the Anti-Defamation League’s Abe Foxman, the American Jewish Committee protested with the traditional defense that real Judaism has no racism:
Rabbi Yoseph’s remarks—suggesting outrageously that Jewish scripture asserts non-Jews exist to serve Jews—are abhorrent and an offense to human dignity and human equality…Judaism first taught the world that all individuals are created in the divine image, which helped form the basis of our moral code. A rabbi should be the first, not the last, to reflect that bedrock teaching of our tradition.
What’s the truth? When we delve into the doctrinal foundation of modern, or Rabbinic Judaism (the Talmud and Zohar) we find only agreement with Yosef. This rabbi, just turned 90, speaks from lifetime immersion in this sacred literature which, to observant Jews, far surpasses the authority of the Old Testament. Here are only a few of its many statements relegating Gentiles to the status of animals.
Solving “The Arab Problem”
Such racist, dehumanizing teachings from rabbinic Judaism’s most sacred literature deeply motivate the Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox sectors of modern Israel, particularly the settlement movement.
This past week Ha’aretz reported settlers invading Arab olive orchards to harvest or destroy them, with no significant penalty from authorities. They clearly considered the fruit of Arab toil to be their own. Armed with 2,000 years of a rabbinic worldview that Gentiles are animals to be exploited, the settler movement powerfully serves the purposes of the Orthodox religious and political rule in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
In 1948 Ben Gurion and official Zionism outwardly disapproved of the terrorism of Begin’s Irgun and Shamir’s Stern Gang. Yet their close cooperation with these brutal organizations was later admitted, proudly. Similarly, the Netanyahu government and Israeli police superficially oppose settler lawlessness and brutality against Palestinian land-owners yet covertly make use of the settlers as advance troops for Israeli expansionism. Now, more clearly than ever, the intention of settlement building is to proliferate Israel’s control into every corner of Palestine, plundering the Palestinian “animals.” Such will complete the task of driving out what Rabbi Yosef calls Arab “donkeys,” begun in 1948 with Irgun’s Shatilla massacre, which precipitated a flight of 800,000 Palestinians to ultimate settlement in concentration camps.
To this end, Knesset recently approved requirement of a loyalty oath from Arab citizens of Israel. They must affirm that what the Zionists did to their grandparents in 1948 was justified and that Israel is a legitimate state. Of course, few of the roughly one million Arabs living in Israel will accede to this, making them, at best, persona non grata in Israel and, at worst, guilty of sedition.
Eminent Orthodox rabbis such as Yosef and Shvat (See "Talmud Encourages Jews to Deceive") are increasingly bold in revealing Judaism’s racism. In their view, this must be preached in order to create a new breed of Orthodox warriors for Israel who will populate the emerging religious/fascist theocracy. It's working; 36 percent of Israelis now believe Arab Israelis should be stripped of voting rights. The next attack will come against their right to dwell not only in the homes of their ancestors in East Jerusalem but anywhere in Palestine. This includes banishment of Christians, a trend that increasingly is emptying Palestine of Catholic, Maronite, Orthodox Christian and Messianic believers.
Ha’aretz , in a recent article by Zeev Sternhell, says “a greater plan of which Foreign Minister Avigdor Leiberman is the official spokesman” is now going forward. This plan is “to prepare hearts and minds for exclusive Jewish control of the population of the entire land.” As Israel moves toward this goal, “Jewishness will always be given clear preference. This fact ensures an endless fight, because the Arabs will refuse to accept the sentence of inferiority that the state of Lieberman and Justice Minister Yakov Neeman intend for them.” Neeman, Sternhell says, “hopes one day to impose rabbinic law on Israel.”
With settler expansion and final expulsion of Arabs comes fulfillment of the 2,000-year-old dream of exiled Jewry: possession of an entirely Jewish, theocratic state, autonomously existing despite world hostility. It’s becoming reality. This will not be a secular Israel but an unashamedly fascist regime glorifying Judaism and imposing rabbinic law, forbidding freedom of speech or religion. The burgeoning ultra-Orthodox movement, inflamed by the increasingly bold statements of Orthodox rabbis, is but a foretaste of what is to come. The Zohar says, “The only sacrifice required is that we remove the unclean [Arabs] amongst us.” (Zohar III 227b) With expulsion of Arabs comes the possibility of removing the Dome of the Rock and rebuilding the Temple, a temple which Scripture promises Israel’s messiah, the Anti-Christ, will sit in. Meanwhile, having deceived the church and nations and occupied God's Holy Land dedicated to righteousness, Israel in defiance of God's law is racing toward that state of national impregnability which Ezekiel 38 and 39 describe. (See "Israel: On the Way to Empire in the Mideast") Ezekiel says that a wicked Israel will “dwell without bars or gates,” with no need of conventional defense. Could this be empowered by Israel's already existing hundreds of nuclear warheads?
Yet Scripture makes clear that Anti-Christ (The Beast) will treacherously turn in rage upon Israel, The Great Harlot. (See "'Babylon the Great' is Israel") He will lead a truly anti-Semitic horde, including the Arab world and Zionist-enslaved nations, to massively overrun Israel, massacring and deporting the Jewish people. Out of Great Tribulation a remnant of Jews will believe in Christ at His Second Coming. Restored to divine favor in the first Biblically lawful return for at least 2,500 years, they will dwell as a nation in Palestine under Christ's rulership for 1,000 years.
Of course, Talmudic contempt for the goyim "beasts" incites the harshest treatment of Palestinians by IDF forces. Gen. Rafael Eitan said of the 19,500 innocent Arab men, women, and children in the refugee camps of southern Lebanon (blown into oblivion by Israel's saturation bombing during its 1992 invasion) that they were "cockroaches in a bottle."
Tragically, evangelical Christian leaders such as Pastor John Hagee and Sarah Palin and their tens of millions of Israel-worshipping “sheeple” do not realize that, in the eyes of predatory Talmudic Jews, we Goyim are viewed in the most literal and vicious way as sheep to be herded, milked, fleeced—and led to the slaughter.
