(Mis)interpreting the Torah


Grand Rabbi of France Gilles Bernheim has declared that the values of Judaism are incompatible with those of the Front National. The article appears at SudOuest, a local paper of Bordeaux:

Grand Rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, when questioned by Sud-Ouest about the attempts made by Marine Le Pen to coax Jewish voters into voting for the FN, declared that "the values of Judaism are incompatible with those of the Front National. And whatever Marine Le Pen's position favoring Israel might be, that will change nothing.

Questioned also on Eva Joly's proposal to make Yom Kippur and Eïd El-Kebir national holidays, the Grand Rabbi replied that he did not have to respond to every statement made by politicians. "I would not want the presidential election to benefit corporatist interests. That is not my idea of the relationship between the political and the religious."

Note: Eva Joly (née Gro Eva Farseth) is the Norwegian-born candidate of the Ecology Party (with support from the Green Party) for the presidency of France in 2012. In 1967 she married Frenchman Pascal Joly, by whom she had two children. They later separated. He committed suicide in 2001. She became known to the public when she was appointed examining magistrate in the Elf-Aquitaine financial scandal in 1994, involving a widespread network of corruption in the French oil industry. In the course of the legal proceedings one person she exonerated was Dominique Strauss-
Kahn.

Gilles Bernheim was in Bordeaux last Sunday to commemorate the rounding-up of 400 Jews from southwestern France in the Synagogue of Bordeaux during WWII. Jews from Bayonne, Pau, Libourne and even Arcachon had been imprisoned in the synagogue before being deported to Drancy, then to Auschwitz.

A contributor to Riposte Laïque named Elisseievna, who is Jewish, responds to rabbi Bernheim's declaration in a long reproach, in which she attempts to explain why Jews are "bleeding heart liberals", citing Leviticus 19:33-34, where Jews are told to love foreigners:

"For you were foreigners in the land of Egypt."

Often, however, Jews seem to be victims of a theoretical hypertrophy of virtue, and boast of spreading this overflow of love, without any reciprocity whatsoever, to the foreigner who does not see himself as a foreigner! Even more - and we live through situations like this today - "foreigners" claiming to be the true possessors of our country - France - and calling us intruders, find themselves theoretically invested with loving protection ordered by the Torah. It must be stated clearly: this twisting of the moral conscience, laden with suicidal tendencies, is of galuti origin (meaning in relation to existence in exile in the diaspora, and not in Israel).

(…)


In conclusion, it seems to me more than evident, Mr. Grand Rabbi of France, that the policies Marine Le Pen proposes are the only ones that can (…) ensure the safety of French Jews. Go for a walk through the middle schools of the ghettos, Gilles Bernheim, listen to what the immigrant children and adolescents, or children of immigrants, are thinking today about the Jews, and then tell me if you can see, in the current state of things, a way of eradicating the terrible rise of antisemitism other than stopping Muslim immigration, all the while applying French laws to stop the kingpins behind Islamic subversive activities. If the laissez-faire policy toward Islam, which is that of all the other candidates, is continued, in a few years, Mr. Grand Rabbi, France will be "judenrein", Notre-Dame de Paris will really be a mosque as Elena Tchoudinova imagined it would be, and the France of Solomon ben Isaac de Troyes will soon be nothing but a memory, because we can count on indifference and the art of Islamic cultural ethnocide to eradicate every last trace. I don't know if this is what you prefer in the name of I don't know what values you call Jewish, but as for me, I will fight against this ethnic cleansing, and for this reason also, I think I will fight with "our new Joan of Arc".

Note: "Judenrein" means "cleansed of Jews."

The reference to Notre-Dame concerns the book by Russian author Elena Tchoudinova in which she describes the last Mass in the cathedral before the definitive capitulation to Islam.

Solomon Yitzhaki of Troyes, known as Rashi, February 22, 1040 – July 13, 1105, was a medieval French rabbi famed as the author of a comprehensive commentary on the Talmud, as well as a comprehensive commentary on the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible). See Wikipedia

I did not have time to research Galuti values, but I found this interesting piece at Palm Tree of Deborah. I can't tell if "galutnik" is correct or pejorative. "Galuti" is the word that seems to be preferred. Possibly "galutnik" is derived from "beatnik" and "peacenik"?

My soul has been churning in righteous indignation for more than 24 hours now and it isn’t lessening even one little bit and it won’t until I get this off of my chest.

After dinner on Leil Shabbat, I sat down to read a small magazine. I didn’t get any further than the first letter to the editor. It was obviously from a visiting galutnik Jew condemning the editorial decision that included in the magazine’s Yom Haatzmaut profile of various Israeli Jews’ comments on the holiday a wish for an Israel without Arabs. I won’t sully this blog by repeating verbatim what was written. Suffice it to say that reference was made to racism and democratic ideals, an obnoxious and obscene comparison between innocent Jews and murderous Arabs with special attention to a perfectly nice Arab waiter, who for all the writer knew could be plotting the next mass poisoning. But, you know, I don’t expect anything better from galutnik Jews. Their minds have already been poisoned by “Western ideals.” For lack of true Torah knowledge, they think it’s the same thing. What a shock they have in store!

In the book of Kings in the Bible, I believe it says that God punished Israel for intermixing with another people, and so were sent into slavery in another kingdom. One can always find something to justify one's political views.

Also, unfortunately there are those in the hierarchie of the Catholic Church who agree with the rabbi.

Where exactly has the rabbi been keeping his head? Up his a**? Rabbi, how can you not see that the Muslims will destroy you? They will drive you and all the Jews you know and don't know out of France. They and you will live your lives in fear and misery and tragedy? Truly the Jews are their own worse enemies. Traitors to their faith, to their civilization.

@ reality check

I hope to be able to find time to do a second report on the rabbi. There was a scathing denunciation of his views at Riposte Laïque, by another Jewish contributor to that website. It was based on an interview the rabbi gave a week ago to Le Figaro. In the interview he described the elements that connect Islam and Judaism and the things that separate them. He expressed optimism over the "Arab Spring" and feels that France is the place for a reconciliation between the three religions. He never mentioned demographics - 400,000 Jews in France vs at least 9 million Muslims. Nor did he mention violence, or mosque building. He did say we misunderstand sharia. He almost sounded at times like a Muslim cleric. At any rate the rabbi lives in an Ivory Tower.

This rabbis not by any means unique. He is one among many prominent Jews in the West, who advocate the unrestricted immigration of Muslims - who see any restriction on Muslim immigration as violating the principles of "tolerance". As such, these Jews become the enablers of the destruction of the Christian West.

Numerically, there are unfortunately many more Français de souche and Christians, than Jews, who support immigration of non-Europeans. When Jews are singled out, it only gives ammunition to the multi-culturalists who say that people who want to preserve their identity, have an anti-semitic agenda.

The trouble is that many prominent Jews are very prominent, more so then then others. Then again they are far better educated and highly intelligent. Then there is feeling that if Jews object to immigration or discrimination on cultural grounds their argument must have greater validity and force because of the holocaust.

Both dauphin and DP111 are right. We cannot single Jews out as the cause of the crisis in Europe. There are many others more guilty and more numerous. The Eurabia project was the work of non-Jews. The planned population replacement was the work of European leaders and Arab States that want the destruction of Israel.

At the same time, there does seem to be an excessive power of persuasion on the part of Jewish intellectuals and writers. Possibly this tendency of the French to look to the "philosophers" as oracles and interpreters of events that are out of control hearkens back to the 18th century. And Jews see themselves on a civilizing mission forgetting completely the reality down on the ground. This relationship between a frightened public and the philosopher with a particular agenda has resulted in two terrible consequences: more hatred of Jews on the part of those who see only the harm done by these philosophers and a deepening crisis that may be unsolvable. The "good people" including Jews who are realistic, are left out in the cold while the dialogues go on in the ivory towers of the media and the university.

The same is true of the Catholics, except that the bishops do not seem to have the same almost magical hold over people's minds as the philosophers. And yet their tacit collaboration has been just as harmful.

Rabbi Bernheim's interview in Le Figaro is not all that bad, it is merely theoretical which is what an ivory tower is - a bastion of theories that cannot work because life is what it is, not what the professors want it to be.

The rabbi did not mention Israel in the Figaro article. He avoided real issues in favor of the theoretical reconciliation between Judaism and Islam.

On the other hand we must not forget that one of the most popular patriotic television commentators is Jewish - Eric Zemmour. And he does not live in an ivory tower, nor do Elisabeth Lévy or Alain Finkielkraut, although they may be less precise in their vision of the current situation.

WHY THE NON-JEWS WANT TO REPLACE (GENOCIDE) THE EUROPEANS?

 
At January 26, 2012 6:57 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

@ anonymous (Part 1)

Your question cannot be answered satisfactorily. The Eurabia project was actually an agreement signed between leaders of Western European nations and Arab nations by which Arab immigrants (i.e.,Muslims)would be admitted into Europe, provided with housing and other benefits, and allowed freedom to practice their faith (meaning that mosques had to be built for them). Arab nations would provide Europe with oil (possibly at lower rates - I cannot be sure of this because I do not have the documents in front of me). Europe in exchange for the labor from the immigrants and the oil would agree to oppose Israel in its attempt to survive as a nation. This means, of course, condemning Israel when it defends itself and when it builds settlements.

These documents are online somewhere, but they are discussed in depth in the book Eurabia by Bat Ye'or.

@ anonymous (part 2)

Here are two excerpts from an article at THe Brussels Journal. The article is full of historical information and does not exactly answer your question. Basically, Europe feels deeply involved in Arab affairs. The idea of having the Arab nations in alliance with Europe and against the United States and Israel was, to them, a winning policy. If they have made a fatal error, they have not admitted it:

http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/1211

According to Bat Ye’or, Eurabia is essentially a political project for a demographic and cultural symbiosis between Europe and the Arab Muslim world, a new extended Mediterranean “continent” made possible by EU authorities through deliberately favoring Muslim immigration, promoting Multiculturalism and the dissemination of Arab and Islamic culture in Europe. In the essay Andalusian Myth, Eurabian Reality, co-authored with Andrew G. Bostom, editor of the comprehensive book The Legacy of Jihad: Islamic Holy War and the Fate of Non-Muslims, Bat Ye’or dispels one of the founding myths of Eurabia: that of the alleged “tolerance” of medieval Spain under Islamic rule.

(…)

The EU elites see themselves as Julius Caesar or Octavian, but end up being Brutus, stabbing their own peoples in the back. They want to recreate the Roman Empire on both sides of the Mediterranean, bound together by some vague references to a “shared Greek heritage.” Instead, they are creating a civilizational breakdown across much of Western Europe as the barbarians are overrunning the continent. The EU wants to recreate the Roman Empire and ends up creating the second fall of Rome.

arabs benefit from the destruction of europe BUT NOT THE EUROPEAN ELITES. WHAT A BUNCH OF FOOLS WHO WILL END UP BEHEADED.


Arab nations would provide Europe with oil (possibly at lower rates


they have been extortioning the west with the oil prices. oil - OUR TECHNOLOGY!



and cultural symbiosis between Europe and the Arab Muslim world, a new extended Mediterranean “continent”


they are not mediterranean, genghis khan and islamic slave trade put an end to that.



which Arab immigrants (i.e.,Muslims)would be admitted into Europe, provided with housing and other benefits,.....(meaning that mosques had to be built for them).


waste of money.


Europe in exchange for the labor from the immigrants


unemployment for europeans.


political project for a demographic and cultural symbiosis between Europe and the Arab Muslim......deliberately favoring Muslim immigration, promoting Multiculturalism and the dissemination of Arab and Islamic culture in Europe.



it's genocide on the europeans



Europe in exchange for the labor from the immigrants and the oil

in exchange for unemployment and extortionism.

would agree to oppose Israel in its attempt to survive as a nation. This means, of course, condemning Israel when it defends itself and when it builds settlements.

@ anonymous 9:18

They did not "nuke" Islam because they needed Islam. Islam is not only opposed to Judaism, it is opposed to Christianity, and the leaders of Europe, certainly those of France, are for the most part either indifferent to or hostile to Christianity. This is partly the legacy of the French Revolutioh which was essentially anti-clerical. Islam to these leaders is an ideal way to undermine Christianity.

You have to wonder about the sanity of these leaders who are anti-clerical but who grovel before imams.

And finally, the idea of nuking Islam is appalling. All that needed to be done was to limit immigration to those people who were compatible with Western cultures, and to be realistic about racial and ethnic differences. This apparently was beyond the capabilities of the western elite and the policy-makers, those who "decide" for us what we must think and believe.

Something else was at work. As anonymous 6:57 above says, it is hatred of the white civilizations which were obviously more advanced than the Arab and black civilizations. The "deciders" could not live with this discrepancy. They had to make everybody equal. They had to level everybody down to the lowest. In doing this they effectively destroyed white civilizations. This is the price the whites had to pay for being more advanced.

If we have to use nuclear bombs it will mean we failed completely to understand the meaning of civilization until it was too late to save it.

«And finally, the idea of nuking Islam is appalling.»


this is appalling:


«“We believe that reiterating these ahistorical, roseate claims about Muslim Spain abets the contemporary Islamist agenda, and retards the evolution of a liberal, reformed ‘Euro-Islam’ fully compatible with post-Enlightenment Western values.” “Iberia [Spain] was conquered in 710-716 AD by Arab tribes originating from northern, central and southern Arabia. Massive Berber and Arab immigration, and the colonization of the Iberian peninsula, followed the conquest. Most churches were converted into mosques. Although the conquest had been planned and conducted jointly with a strong faction of royal Iberian Christian dissidents, including a bishop, it proceeded as a classical jihad with massive pillages, enslavement, deportations and killings.”

“In the regions under stable Islamic control, Jews and Christians were tolerated as dhimmis – like elsewhere in other Islamic lands – and could not build new churches or synagogues nor restore the old ones. Segregated in special quarters, they had to wear discriminatory clothing. Subjected to heavy taxes, the Christian peasantry formed a servile class attached to the Arab domains; many abandoned their land and fled to the towns. Harsh reprisals with mutilations and crucifixions would sanction the Mozarab (Christian dhimmis) calls for help from the Christian kings.”

The humiliating status imposed on the dhimmis and the confiscation of their land provoked many revolts, punished by massacres, as in Toledo (761, 784-86, 797), Saragossa from 781 to 881, Cordova (805), Merida (805-813, 828), and yet again in Toledo (811-819). The insurgents were crucified, as prescribed in the Koran 5:33.

“Feuding was endemic in the Andalusian cities between the different sectors of the population: Arab and Berber colonizers, Iberian Muslim converts (Muwalladun) and Christian dhimmis (Mozarabs). There were rarely periods of peace in the Amirate of Cordova (756-912), nor later.” “Al-Andalus represented the land of jihad par excellence. Every year, sometimes twice a year, raiding expeditions were sent to ravage the Christian Spanish kingdoms to the north, the Basque regions, or France and the Rhone valley, bringing back booty and slaves. Andalusian corsairs attacked and invaded along the Sicilian and Italian coasts, even as far as the Aegean Islands, looting and burning as they went. Thousands of people were deported to slavery in Andalusia, where the caliph kept a militia of tens of thousand of Christian slaves brought from all parts of Christian Europe (the Saqaliba), and a harem filled with captured Christian women. Society was sharply divided along ethnic and religious lines, with the Arab tribes at the top of the hierarchy, followed by the Berbers who were never recognized as equals, despite their Islamization; lower in the scale came the mullawadun converts and, at the very bottom, the dhimmi Christians and Jews.”
“Moorish Spain was not a tolerant and enlightened society even in its most cultivated epoch.”
A prominent Andalusian jurist, Ibn Hazm of Cordoba (d. 1064), wrote that Allah has established the infidels’ ownership of their property merely to provide booty for Muslims.

@ anonymous 10:34,

This is true. Most French leaders are members of the Grand Orient. The Grand Orient, a more secretive version of the Socialist Party, is the embodiment of the French Revolution. But possibly the Grand Orient today is more secretive than in the past, because religion is less active. The GO doesn't have to oppose religion so much as in the past because religion today is weaker. So the GO turns to other activities. Such as prostitution rings and Mafia-style schemes. I wrote about the Carlton Affair involving prostitution in the city of Lille, and implicating Dominique Strauss-Kahn. According to Yves Daoudal, in his weekly newsletter #148, most of the major players in that scandal were members of the GO.

I should remind everyone that I am not an expert on Freemasonry. I have heard that the Masonic lodges in other countries, such as the United States and Great Britain are quite different from the French Grand Orient, which has strayed far from any humanistic ideals it once espoused.

I agree that what happened in Spain is appalling. I'm only saying that the current crisis could have been avoided if we had had intelligent and patriotic leaders, and that if it turns out that the use of nuclear weapons becomes necessary then we are dismal failures as a civilization because we couldn't see the danger staring at us in the face.
