Israel Fits Pamela Geller's Description of 'Savage'
By Rev Ted Pike
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, October 16, 2012
On April 9, 1948 an International Red Cross representative was among the first to arrive at the infamous Deir Yassin massacre. Zionist Irgun and Stern gang forces under orders from Irgun leader and future Prime Minister of Israel, Menachem Begin, had descended on a sleeping Arab town near Jerusalem, slaughtering over 100 of its inhabitants. Victims of all ages were hacked in pieces, many filling a well. When the Red Cross arrived, killing was still going on. Their representative described a very beautiful young Jewish Irgun fighter finishing the last murders. She came up to an elderly Arab woman and repeatedly stabbed her, killing her before his eyes.
That woman reminds me of Pamela Geller—a Jewish inheritor of the same homicidal zeal to purge the world of Arabs and Muslims. Geller sympathizes with Norwegian mass murderer Breivik who tried to stem Muslim immigration through slaughter. She resembles Begin, who claimed he was the “father of terrorism” in the world. Why? She has advocated the ultimate act of terror: annihilating all Muslims in Europe (along with Gentiles and plenty of her own people, the Jews) should Iran attack Israel. She believes this should be Israel’s “price tag” for how Europe has mistreated Jews and promoted Muslims. (See Pam Geller: If Iran Attacks, Israel Should Nuke Europe) Begin would have loved Geller.
Does Pam Geller sound like a civilized human being? Her instincts, like those of the beautiful Irgun terrorist at DeirYassin, are quintessentially savage.
Yet she has run ads in SF, NYC and DC and now in my hometown of Portland, OR saying: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”
Israel has revealed actions and attitudes toward her Arab citizens which are anything but civilized. On the day after the Deir Yassin bloodbath, Irgun trucks with loudspeakers went throughout Judea proclaiming that if Arabs in Palestine did not immediately flee their businesses, farms, and homes they would suffer the same fate as the Arabs of Deir Yassin. Eventually, half of all Arabs in Palestine fled, most with only the clothing on their backs, attempting to find safety in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. Eventually, they were incarcerated in UN-run concentration camps. To this day they are forbidden to return. Advocacy of such return and repossession is defined by Israel as “terrorism,” “denying Israel’s right to exist,” and “denial of Jewish rights of self-determination.” (See Debunking Joe Farah's Jewish Fables)
It is difficult to conceive of any government treating its indigenous inhabitants in a more uncivilized, savage manner. Yet that, with many subsequent massacres and expulsions of Arabs, is how Israel has created its much touted “democracy.” It was founded through savagery, not negotiation or legitimate purchase of Arab lands. Theft and brutality created the “miracle” that is modern Israel. (See Israel: Founded on Terror)
Geller: Islam is Evil, Judaism Good
Geller is in a propaganda offensive against Islam that will be citing a number of inflammatory statements from the Q’uran advocating violence and intolerance. She says that behavior of the Biblical Hebrews does not compare in “savagery” to what is taught in Islam’s holy book.
However, the Old Testament has not been the primary ethical and scriptural guide of observant Jews and the State of Israel during the past century of interactions with the Palestinians. That advisory role belongs to the Babylonian Talmud and its mystical/revolutionary companion, the Zohar, or Kabbalah. These, the holiest of scriptures for modern Judaism, do abundantly contain concepts and recommendations concerning the inhumanity of Gentiles and the rights of Jews to oppress and even destroy them. Such far exceed the “savagery” Geller ascribes to the Q’uran. Here are a few quotations from the Talmud and Zohar, taken from a number of translations:
Jews don’t have to keep their promises. “…he who desires that none of his vows made during the year should be valid, let him stand at the beginning of the year and declare ‘Every vow which I make in the future shall be null: [his vows are then invalid]…’” (The Talmud, Nedarim, 23b) (See Kol Nidre: Judaism's License to Lie) “It is permitted to deceive a goi (Gentile).” (The Talmud, Baba Kama, 113b) The Talmud says Jews may have sex with three year-old baby girls. “A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition…” (Sanhedrin, 56b) “A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed through cohabitation…” (Yebamoth, 57b) “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest…” (Yebamoth, 60b) “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing…” (Kethuboth, 11b) (See Pedophilia: The Talmud's Dirty Secret) If a Jew wants to kill his enemy “indirectly,” without fear of capital punishment he can:
tie up his neighbor in front of a lion who devours him, tie him up for mosquitoes to sting him to death, turn a vat over on his enemy and let him die of suffocation, keep him prisoner in a room, but open the ceiling so that he dies of exposure, tie up his neighbor until he starves to death, throw his neighbor into a pit in which there is a ladder but have a friend remove the ladder so the neighbor dies, etc. (Sanhedrin, 76a-77b)
“Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed.” Christians may legally be thrown into a pit to die. (AbodahZarah, 26b) Jews are exalted, the Talmud says, even above angels. “He who smites an Israelite on his jaw is as though he had thus assaulted the Divine presence.” (Sanhedrin, 58b) “You [the Jews] are thus called men, but the Goyim are not called men.” (Kerithoth, 6b) The Zohar agrees. “‘Living soul’ designates Israel.” Gentiles, however, “are all impure and defile those who have contact with them.” “‘Living soul’ refers to Israel who have holy, living souls from above, and ‘cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth’ to the other people who are not ‘living soul’…” (Zohar I, 47a) The Zohar commands extermination of idolatrous [Christian] Gentiles. “The People of the earth are idolaters…Let them be wiped off the face of the earth.” “At the moment when the Holy One…will exterminate all the goyim of the world, Israel alone will subsist…” (Vayschlah, 177b) “In the palaces of the fourth heaven are those who lamented over Sion and Jerusalem, and all those who destroyed idolatrous nations…” (Zohar I, 38b, 39a) How will Jewish world conquest be made possible?The Zohar tells us. “Rabbi Jehuda said to him (Rabbi Chezkia): ‘He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them and fight against them.’ Rabbi Chezkia asked, ‘How must we fight against them?’ Rabbi Jehuda said, ‘By wise counsel thou shalt war against them.’ (Proverbs 24:6) ‘By what kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must war against his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau—by deceit and trickery wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we should free ourselves from them and rule over them.’” (Zohar I, 60a)
Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal could “savagely” destroy Civilization
To conclude, what could be more savage than a tiny nation wielding an exorbitant 300+ nuclear weapons—a nuclear stockpile far beyond what any nation would require in a nuclear conflict? Israel has marshaled the sympathies of many in the West through its claim that Iran is building a nuclear weapon and that a preemptory attack upon Iran is necessary. But Israel never mentions her own oversized nuclear stockpile. How “uncivilized” to amass such horrific potential to destroy civilization. Under the trigger of one deranged Israeli premier, the earth could go back in a few moments to before the Stone Age.
Let’s Answer Geller with True Bus Ads
Muslims in America have countered Geller’s ads with their own. Here's my proposal. I suggest they, or anti-Zionist groups, mount a publicity campaign on busses in every major city in America, just as Geller plans to. These should copy Geller’s ad in format but feature a blue background, the color of peace. The ad should say: “In any war between civilization and savagery, support civilization. Support freedom for Palestinians. Stop Israel’s injustices.”

WORLDNETDAILY PROMOTES RACIST PAM GELLER
By Rev. Ted Pike 16 Oct 12
Pam Geller says Israel should nuke Europe if Iran attacks Israel. She endorsed the slaughter of Norwegians by mass murderer Breivik. She portrays Muslims as “savages” in her present anti-Islam ad campaigns. (See Pam Geller: If Iran Attacks, Israel Should Nuke Europe)
Yet such potentially murderous Islamophobia and sympathy with terrorism does not dampen admiration for Pam Geller by WND owner Joseph Farah or his millions of increasingly fanatical anti-Muslim evangelical readers. What matters to them is that she has a proven record of dishing out more dirt against Islam than any other. As a result, since June 2011, Geller’s column “Defending the West” has been featured weekly on WND.
Geller: Symptom of Heightening Intolerance
Toleration for Geller’s intolerance is a manifestation of increasing separation of groups, races and religions today into self-righteous blocs. These, despite a residue of outward respect for human dignity and civil rights, are actually delighted when they find a vocal and charismatic, yet bigoted leader who can effectively dehumanize their opposition.
Consequently in the U.S., groups which could not be more ideologically opposed make use of Geller’s own savagery in going after Islam:
The religious right finds increasing pleasure in dehumanizing Muslims and Arabs, even to the point of some evangelicals believing Muslims are morally irredeemable. This week I received a packet in the mail from a fundamentalist Christian ministry. It said: “There is no room for Islam or any other heathen religion in the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ! Don’t worry about evangelizing the Muslims and converting them to Christianity. You might as well go out in the backyard and preach to your dogs. Jesus was not sent to them. He is not theirs. He is ours…Turn back to Christ with all your heart, and don’t concern yourself with the chaff. He will get rid of the chaff.” Another Christian, a Baptist minister, told me: “God has written off the entire Arab world.” Geller’s very similar voice of dehumanization of Arabs thus soothes and strengthens a religious right in America – as well as their Republican representation in Congress, which is becoming only increasingly Judaized and Islamophobic. The Southern Poverty Law Center, like the Anti-Defamation League, is a Jewish “civil liberties” attack group which represents Israel’s interests and is fundamentally, like Israel, anti-Arab/Islamic. Yet for purposes of strategy, which include proliferation of ADL’s Christian-indicting, Muslim-protecting hate crime laws worldwide, SPLC/ADL have assumed a position of civic and legal protectionism of Islam. This includes defense of its right to freely promote its beliefs, including universal Sharia law and building mosques in America. SPLC has listed Geller’s organization as a “hate group.” Yet SPLC is also delighted in Geller’s success in rousing evangelicals to “holy war” against Islam. Here’s how much SPLC really loathes Geller: “Blessed with sultry Hollywood sex appeal and a sassy, scythe like wit—a personable Ann Coulter and articulate Sarah Palin rolled into one—Geller would ride the Park Project protest to superstardom.” (Geller's Website) SPLC loves Geller because she is one of them: a Jewish supremacist masquerading as a “tea party” conservative. Even though not a Christian, she is clearly being groomed and protected by the Jewish establishment for actual leadership of the religious right—a role already largely realized through promotion by conservative media such as WND, Human Events, Fox News, etc. The US government, through the US Justice Department and ADL’s US State Department Office of Global Anti-Semitism (see The Real Motive Behind the 'Department of Global Anti-Semitism'), gives Muslims special protection over Christians under the federal anti-hate crimes law. (Watch Holder Admits: No Equality Under Hate Bill) Yet the US Marine Corp, in the field, has very different, vehemently anti-Muslim sympathies. It relishes the degrading, anti-Islamic rhetoric of Geller. Her bio says: “In October 2011, the United States Marine Corps presented her with the flag flown on September 11, 2011 over Camp Leatherneck, ‘amid the battlefields of Afghanistan during decisive operations against enemy forces in Helmand Province.’” (Geller's Bio) They appreciated a beautiful female champion against Islam in the War on Terror. Did they appreciate that she is also an outspoken and unabashed Jewish champion of Zionist values that created strife in the Mid-East in the first place? A primary Zionist objective is enticement of the west to fight anti-Muslim wars for Israel. The fact is Jews don’t, as a rule, fight alongside Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan. Jews are dramatically underrepresented in the U.S. military, especially in modern Mid-East wars. The vast majority of Jews do not go into the military. The best and brightest go into Ivy League universities, preparing to become the next generation of overseers of the Jewish political, media, financial and cultural establishment in America. In 2003, an article in The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles revealed: “Only some 3,000 out of 1.4 million active duty servicemen and women are Jewish, about two-tenths of one percent. When it comes to Marines, the numbers are even more startling. It’s one out of 1,000. One-tenth of one percent.” The Malaysian Prime Minister once said that “Jews rule the world by proxy…They get others to fight and die for them.” There are more young Jews in several high-tier universities like Princeton or Harvard than in all of the US military. It is dual-citizen American Jews and Israel who should be grateful for thousands of Americans dying in Jewish-manufactured wars to make the Mid-East safe for Israel. It is shameful that the American military should honor Pam Geller–a representative of the very Zionist lobby that has brought so much grief to Americans who have lost loved ones in no-win Mid-East wars.
Let’s Learn from the Crusades
In the Middle Ages, the church lost sight of the fact that Christianity is primarily at war with sin in the hearts of men—not with “infidels” unlawfully occupying “holy places” of distant Jerusalem. For centuries, millions left families, farms, and businesses in Europe to die in the “holy crusade” against Islam. God never wanted them to fight such a futile, unscriptural war.
Today, Jews like Geller are again whipping up Christians to engage in an ungodly, pro-Zionist war against Islam which is not part of the mission of Christianity. (See Why We Should Fear Zionism More than Islam) The dehumanization of Arabs and Muslims that is a necessary part of the propaganda offensive of this new “holy war” could not be more opposed to Christianity. It turns upside down everything Christ encouraged concerning the value of every human soul and their need for salvation.
Every racial, religious or political group which deprives their ideological opponents of basic humanity actually dehumanizes themselves, leaving their enemies morally untouched. Whatever sins or atrocities we may allege about our enemies, we must never allow ourselves, especially as Christians, to forget that every human being possesses a precious eternal soul, made in the image of God. The Christian’s top priority is to tell everyone the good news of salvation through Jesus. Thus, the church is responsible to resist takeover by a Zionist jihad, not go along with it.
First Amendment Protects Everyone’s Speech
Geller’s right to publically dehumanize Muslim “savages” is protected by the First Amendment. So is the right of Christians to evangelize in public parks or pray in front of the White House or persuade young people against homosexuality. Such free expression should also be granted to scholars who question the accuracy of the establishment’s version of the “Holocaust” or anti-Israel activists at the University of California Berkley to demonstrate against Israel.
What is not appropriate is for Christians to allow themselves to become foot soldiers in a Zionist “holy war” against Islam. Geller represents ever-increasing Jewish leadership and influence over evangelical Christianity. Such influence urges evangelicals toward total identification with Jewish, not Christian, goals. A renewed “holy war” against Islam will not destroy the Islamic threat today, any more than the crusades destroyed it in the 13th century. But it could irretrievably destroy the credibility and influence of Christianity to a world in desperate need of its authentic message of love and redemption.
