The Miracle of Zionism

"Israel is the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago." - Historian Barbara Tuchman

"Israel is the only nation on the face of the earth that was created by a sovereign act of God" - Pastor John Hagee

"All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?" - Author / Atheist, Mark Twain (long before the Holocaust and Israeli-Jewish statehood)

"They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a Bauble in comparison of the Jews. They have given religion to three quarters of the Globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily, than any other Nation ancient or modern." - President John Adams - His 1808 response letter criticizing the depiction of Jews by the French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire.

What the Jew-Haters Claim and My Responses Part Two

Pictures above: 1. A pro-Iranian / pro-Ahmadinejad Islamic religious woman demonstrating her denial the Holocaust while promoting another one (against the Jews of course). 2. The Palestinian Police formation giving the Hitler salute. 3. Members of Hezbollah (Islamic partners of Iran) given the Hitler salute. 4. Palestinian Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amein Al-Hussaeini giving the Hitler salute to his Bosnian Muslim Hanjar SS Nazi division (1941-1945).

"Mein Kampf was rated 6th on the best-seller list among Palestinians in a survey conducted and reported in PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida."
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida (Fatah), Sept. 2, 1999
For anyone living during the "greatest generation" regardless of their place in life, who was mentally capable of lashing out against the Axis of Evil but failed to do so for whatever reason was either directly or indirectly connected with the Axis of Evil that they refused to denounce.
Eighteenth century political theorist and philosopher Edmund Burke said it right: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

What causes me to lash out against global jihad via the religion of Islam is that I can't help but see the same Nazi-spirit of pure evil within the human political and religious world forces. Because the evidence of this fact is so plan on so many different political and religious levels I get quite frustrated when these realities are willfully overlooked. The evil inspiration that caused Adolph Hitler to make the following statement in his manifesto Mein Kamph: "Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: - by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord." did not end when Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945.

That same evil inspiration that was driving Hitler carries on within the evil inclination of humanity. The pictures above are clear illustrations of this fact. It's not the Hitler salute itself but the spiritual force behind the salute of which is not bound to any particular individual or political regime. Seeing this evil on the level that I do I feel that its my duty is to fight this evil in every way I possibly can. How about you the reader?

Jew-Hater Claim: "Israel is occupying the land of the Palestinians, so the Palestinians have an ISLAMIC LEGAL/HUMAN RIGHT & AN INTERNATIONAL LEGAL RIGHT to fight back against occupation & oppression." (This was the exact wording, including the uppercase letters, as how it was presented to me on You Tube from a Somalian named Hassan living in Virgina).

My Response: 1. It is impossible to for any nation of people to "occupy" the birthplace of their nation, the birthplace of their religion, the birthplace of their culture, and the land of which their historical connection as a people are linked.
2. The land that is claimed by the Jew-haters to be Israeli "occupied" is the very land in which the Hebrew Bible was written and formed by the "raised Hebrew prophets". This fact is shared by the very founder of Islam itself Mohammad, who himself agreed that "all" the land in question of this modern era was original given by Allah to the Jewish people. (See Koran 5:20-21 / Koran 17:104).
3. Unlike the global jihad Islamic mindset the modern State of Israel never has "started" a war with anyone since it's rebirth as a modern recognized nation. Therefore the mindset and term of Palestinians "fighting back" is a willful misnomer, big time.
4. Since there can be no "occupation" of a people towards its national historical birthplace, and since the so-called Palestinians have equal citizen rights under Israeli law (including being Members of Parliament (MP) and member of the Supreme Court within the Israeli Government) the claim of "oppression" has no merit as does the "occupation" claim has no merit.
Both claims are intentionally used to turn world opinion against the Jews which is historically easier to do than it is for Israel to justify its existence, of which the world Jew-haters are very much aware.
5. It's ironic how Jew-haters will claim "Human Rights / International Legal Rights" when the Palestinians are the worse world violators of both. To the Palestinians, using a non-combatant of their own people as a human shield against the known life-preserving nature of the Israelis is not a human rights violation, nor is sending Katyusha and Qassam rockets into Israeli population centers that includes elementary schools.
Fact: The words "Human Rights Violation" was never uttered from the Jew-haters mouths when many Al-Fatah members were being butchered by Hamas members during the 2007 Hamas political takeover of the Gaza Strip. That wasn't a Jew-hating political issue. It's only when the Jewish Israelis makes a defensive move to protect its citizens from literally thousands of rocket attacks that we then hear the terms "Human Rights and International Law/ Rights" coming from the world Jew-haters.

Jew-Hater Claim: "The Palestinians are genetically linked to Israel and are the "true Jews" of which the leader of Hamas has more claim to the land genetically than the Israelis Jews from Europe and elsewhere." This claim came to me from a Jew-hater college student in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

My Response: Fact: The Cohen Model Haplotype (CMH - also known as the Cohen Gene) is "most highly concentrated" within Judaism's known physically-expressed "cohanim" (priests) - not the so-called Palestinians nor any other Muslim group of people.
Fact: The tradition of family names being handed down from generation to generation is obvious genetically influenced. And the "most common" family name among world Jewry from all the nations is indeed "Cohen". There's even a one-liner joke that the first Jewish Country Music star was "Buck Owens". The most common name among the so-called Palestinians and other Muslims groups is of course the non-Hebrew Bible name of Mohammad, who was an Arabian Gentile from the Quraysh tribe.

For a so-called Palestinian or any other Gentile having the CMH as a result of intermarriage does NOT make one a holy High Priest. It was the very great, great, grandson of Jacob (whose name was changed to Israel) and the great grandson of Levi (the founder of the priestly tribe) named "Korah" that fought Israel and withstood Moses the Torah author whereby Israel is known as a people and nation to this very day.1
Likewise, Ishmael no doubt had Abraham's DNA as did Isaac. But the covenant of promise came through Sarah (God's chosen seed-bearer for the purpose of the Covenant between God and future Israelite nation).2

Fact: There is not a time and place in world history since the Roman-Gentile destruction of the Second Jewish Temple, where the Jews as a people (in language, family names, religion, and culture) could not be identified as "Jews". Regardless if the Jews were in their ancient homeland of Israel or in exile lands such as Babylonia, Egypt, Persia, Arabia and all areas of Europe and the New World, world history has accurately recorded their movements.3

This historic record of world Jewry gives way to the fact that the Israeli Jews of the modern era makes up the representatives of every historic Jewish Diaspora community in the world, showing forth the Biblical prophesy of "true" Jewish return to the land of Israel.4 This fact is something any Palestinian with the CHM through intermarriage cannot lay claim to without embracing the Isaac Covenant. Simply Amazing!

Bottom line fact: All of "true Israel" is not only genetically linked to Jacob and the Land of Israel, but is interwoven with the Law of Moses and the God of Israel who is worshiped through His most personal Name of YHVH - the very reason for the Exodus (see Exodus 6:3 compared to Exodus 7:16). This fact also releases any so-called Palestinian that might happen to have the CHM gene from being apart of "true Israel" and the "promise of return" unto the Land of Israel.
No other god(s) outside of YHVH were to be worshiped within the "Holy Land" of Israel as the first two commandment of the Ten Commandments illustrates!

Jew-Hater Claim: I'm not against nor hate Jews, I'm against and hate Zionists.

My Response: I know I touched on this in part 1 on the blog, but I have just seen the movie entitled "Eichmann" that based its production on official Israeli interrogation manuscripts. (I would encourage people to see the PG-17 version of it).
From Wikipedia >

"During cross-examination, prosecutor Hausner asked Eichmann if he considered himself guilty of the murder of millions of Jews. Eichmann replied: "Legally not, but in the human sense ... yes, for I am guilty of having deported them". When Hausner produced as evidence a quote by Eichmann in 1945 stating: "I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have five million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction." Eichmann countered the claim saying that he was referring only to "enemies of the Reich"

Notice how the Nazi SS devil Eichmann sought to differentiate the murder of specified Jews not as sought out Jew-murder in particular, but as "enemies of the Reich". This is the same principle the Jew-haters in their Jew-hatred theory use when instead of using "enemies of the Reich" they will now use the term "Zionists". Their goal is to take "the Jew" (or the Juden) out of the obvious "Jew-hatred". The sad part is, the world media and the academic world buy totally into it.

Some Facts about Zionists:
  • A Zionist can be either a Jew or Gentile (like me).
  • An anti-Zionists can be either a Jew or a Gentile.
  • A Jew or Gentile can be pro-Biblical Covenant.
  • A Jew or Gentile can be anti-Biblical Covenant.
  • There are Gentiles who are Zionists (like myself).
  • There are Jews who are anti-Zionists (automatically making them anti-Covenant and are mostly self-hating).
  • Korah (of the priestly Levite tribe), the biblical Israelite tribe of Dan, the four hundred and fifty false prophets Baal and the four hundred false prophets of Asherah that withstood Elijah (I Kings 18:21) along with Jewish King Ahab, and the false prophet Shamiah that withstood the prophet Jeremiah, are just a few biblical mentions of many Jews who opposed the God of Israel and His covenant with the Jewish people.
  • An anti-Zionists, secular, Bible/Covenant-hating, self-hating, "Jew" is still judged in the eyes of the Gentiles a representative of the Chosen People of the God of Israel. Only an atheist Jew can be persecuted and even murdered because of his / her tribal-based religion of Judaism. This fact is due that a Christian or Muslim who leaves their prospective religions are no longer identified as a Christian or Muslim. However, when a Jew departs from Judaism he / she still remains identified as a Jew.
Therefore, who of the known Jewish people truly reflects Judaism? It is the Jew who embraces the everlasting Biblical Covenant that the God of Israel has with the Jewish People of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, while also embracing the Zionistic prophetic return of all Jewish exiles to the Land of Israel as the Biblical Hebrew prophets foretold in the Name of YHVH.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (My Salute to Him on His Day of Remembrance)

"Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism"

- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--this is God's own truth.

"Antisemitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently antisemitic, and ever will be so.

"Why is this? You know that Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land. The Jewish people, the Scriptures tell us, once enjoyed a flourishing Commonwealth in the Holy Land. From this they were expelled by the Roman tyrant, the same Romans who cruelly murdered Our Lord. Driven from their homeland, their nation in ashes, forced to wander the globe, the Jewish people time and again suffered the lash of whichever tyrant happened to rule over them.

"The Negro people, my friend, know what it is to suffer the torment of tyranny under rulers not of our choosing. Our brothers in Africa have begged, pleaded, requested--DEMANDED the recognition and realization of our inborn right to live in peace under our own sovereignty in our own country.

"How easy it should be, for anyone who holds dear this inalienable right of all mankind, to understand and support the right of the Jewish People to live in their ancient Land of Israel. All men of good will exult in the fulfilment of God's promise, that his People should return in joy to rebuild their plundered land.

This is Zionism, nothing more, nothing less.

"And what is anti-Zionist? It is the denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the people of Africa and freely accord all other nations of the Globe. It is discrimination against Jews, my friend, because they are Jews. In short, it is antisemitism.

"The antisemite rejoices at any opportunity to vent his malice. The times have made it unpopular, in the West, to proclaim openly a hatred of the Jews. This being the case, the antisemite must constantly seek new forms and forums for his poison. How he must revel in the new masquerade! He does not hate the Jews, he is just 'anti-Zionist'!

"My friend, I do not accuse you of deliberate antisemitism. I know you feel, as I do, a deep love of truth and justice and a revulsion for racism, prejudice, and discrimination. But I know you have been misled--as others have been--into thinking you can be 'anti-Zionist' and yet remain true to these heartfelt principles that you and I share.

Let my words echo in the depths of your soul: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--make no mistake about it."

From M.L. King Jr., "Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend," Saturday Review XLVII (Aug. 1967), p. 76.

What the Jew-Haters Claim and My Responses

There is a certain set of claims that anti-Semites (of which I will henceforth refer to as Jew-haters) from all over the world and from many different backgrounds who will use without fail in an harmonious effort as they try to persuade pubic opinion and effect world politics. While in debate with them, I can sense the uniformity within their claims insomuch that many times I can tell what their subject of attack will be just before they bring it out.

When the world Jewry mostly centered in Christian Europe, it was commonplace (as still is) to attack the Jews via their religion Judaism, as being religiously inferior. Under the change of Europe's "Age of Enlightenment" Adolph Hitler didn't attack the Jewish religion as a Christian, but made war against the Jewish race and Jewish blood. After the Holocaust the world changed again.

Since the Holocaust horrors conducted by the Nazi Jew-haters are so acknowledged throughout the world, vivid Jew-hatred such as what the Nazis promoted, had to disguise itself in order to be more productive and accepted. It is what some in the academic world calls "The New Anti-Semitism". Since it's the same exact Jew hatred since time immemorial, just continuing under a different expression, I call it plain, old fashion, "Jew-hatred".

In this post-Holocaust world (especially in the West) it's not kosher to openly hate Jews as Jews, although some still do. The shift has turned towards attacking the Jew through world politics, namely, the Jewish State of Israel - a more or less product of Hitler's ovens. The post-Holocaust term among the world Jew-haters for "Jews"(or "Juden" as they once said in Nazi Germany) has become and is now "Zionists".1

It is actually hard to find a Jew-hater anywhere that will use the word "Jew" unless they are using the it as a shield for their Jew-hatred as in, "I'm not against Jews / Judaism, I'm against the Zionists / Zionism".

Spiritual Fact: There is a spiritual absolute rule that makes it imposable for an openly expressed Jew-hater (anti-Semite) who is not an open anti-Zionist as well. We don't have two groups of Jew-haters , one group Jew-hating who are against the Zionists while the other group of Jew-haters are supportive of the Zionists. All Jew-haters will automatically be against Zionism by their very nature of Jew-hatred. This fact alone reveals the true nature behind "anti-Zionism" altogether by both the open Jew-haters and the Jew-hater deniers. When someone makes the claim that they are not against the Jews or Judaism, but are only against Zionism, they are indeed lying based upon the spiritual foundation that such a separation between either Judaism and Zionism or between Jew-hatred and anti-Zionism is an impossibility.

These incognito Jew-haters and so-called moderate Muslims have something in common. Like the so-called "moderate Muslims" who refuse to denounce the so-called "hijackers of religion of peace" anti-Zionists activists will never be active in denouncing those who murder "Jews" in far places outside of Israel. For an example, I never heard a single anti-Zionist activist denounce the Muslims who murdered the Jews at the Jewish Center in Mumbai in November, 2008. The next time you hear of a successful terrorist attack against Jews somewhere in the world outside of Israel (God forbid) see if you can hear an anti-Zionist anywhere in the world denouncing such horrific Jewish-targeted murder and calling such acts, for what it is - murder.

The inseparable connection between the Hebrew Bible (Ha-TaNaCH) and Zionism of which the religion of Judaism has since its beginning has been based are listed (but not limited to) as follows:
  • The one and only true Hebrew God of Israel "YHVH" (HaShem) is Zionistic in His very nature to the point of inspiring His Hebrew prophets to prophecy in Zionistic themes whereby true Zionism wouldn't exist without Him.
  • Ancient Zionism is as old as the first Jewish expulsion by Babylon in 586 BCE - nearly 2,600 years ago! This makes Zionism several centuries older than the religion of Christianity and 1.2 millenniums older than the religion of Islam.
  • Zionism is a part of the everlasting covenant YHVH has with Israel as we can see by reading all the context of Psalms 105:5-11. And Psalms 137: 1-6 is ancient written literature containing Zionistic cries that far predate all forms of Christianity, Islam, widespread secularism, and the age of so-called Enlightenment.
  • Zionism can be found in all the major sections of the Hebrew Bible (Tanach) that includes past, present, and future Zionistic themes: The Torah - Deuteronomy 30:3 / 34:1-4 (Past) The Prophets - Ezekiel 37:21-22 (Future) and The Writings - Psalms 137:1-6 (Present)
  • The Hebrew Bible is very specific about its spiritual and physical applications of Zionism. Therefore, Zionism is very much apart of the religion of true Judaism. Judaism without Zionism would be like Judaism without the belief in a messiah of which both messiah and the physical land of Israel are biblically intertwined.
  • National Zionism (Theodore Herzel's modern version) only addresses the secular nationalism aspect of the Jewish people. Biblical and ancient Zionism addresses both the national and spiritual-redemption aspect of the Jewish people and nation.
Of course the preferred terminology of "Zionism" over the word "Jew" doesn't stop with the Jew-haters. As mentioned above, many other world-wide conjoined Jew-haters have their standard set of specific claims that they use to forward their agenda. What binds the world Jew-haters together from the white American Presbyterian clergy to the Middle East Hezbollah rocket launcher, is their set aggression against the spiritual element of Israel's eternal covenant with the God of Israel. The more modern events lend themselves toward the fulfillment of biblical prophesy via the Hebrew prophets, the more aggressive towards Israel the Jew-haters become.

The degree of resistance of the Jew-hater depends upon the sensitivity level of biblical prophesy. For an example, Jews living outside the biblical land borders generate a certain amount of hostility among the Jew-haters,2 but not on the higher level of Jew-hatred as does Jews living within the biblical land borders including Gaza, the West Bank (Judea / Samaria), and so-called "East" Jerusalem. The hostility becomes even greater concerning the concept of Jews controlling the Temple Mount insomuch that any attempt of Israeli Jews to build a third religious temple on their ancient and biblical temple mount where two prior Jewish temples once stood, would without a doubt ignite World War III.

Therefore, to respond to the anti-biblical base of the Jew-haters' claims one must response from a biblical base in order to address their claims to the utmost of response answers. My personal responses to the Jew-haters set of claims maybe both biblical-based and of national justice.
For example, along with the nation of Israel having a biblical right and destiny in the biblical land of Israel through past, present, and future biblical oracles - of which far outweighs any and all human endeavors that would suggest otherwise - there is also the national non-religious fact that will remain until the end of time. And that is, Israel is the birthplace of the Jewish people, and the term Jew, Judea (now called the West Bank) and the Kingdom of Judah are all derivatives from each other. Therefore, "Israel's right to Israel" can be justified in both biblical and national terms.

Jew-Hater Myth-Claim: "The Jews stole land from the Palestinians".
My Response: Since Israel is the birthplace of the Jewish people and never willfully gave it their birthplace up, Jewish blood could no more steal ancient Israeli land than could the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole Indian tribes could "steal" Oklahoma land.
Fact: The term "Palestine" is Greek in origin and Roman implemented under Jewish persecution by the Roman Jew-murderer Emperor Hadrian in 135 CE. In fact, There is no "P" sound in Arabic. This is the precise reason the so-called Palestinians use the pronunciation "Nablus" for "Flavia NeaPolis" (the renaming of Biblical "Shechem" by the Roman Emperor Vespasian in 72 CE). Therefore, if the so-called Palestinians would be given a state, they would be the only people in the world who could not pronounce the very name of their own state in their native language! Amazing!
Fact II: There has never been a historical king, flag, national recognized people, currency, symbol, derived names, or culture, known as Palestinian in all of world history before the twentieth century CE.
Fact III: Every inch of modern Israel that is Jewish owned, has either been purchased or has been forfeited via an aggressive war of annihilation towards Jewish communities!
Bottom line Religious fact: The Arabic language that the so-called "Palestinians" speak derives from the land of Arabia where the spiritual center Islam (Mecca) is present, while Hebrew the language of the Jews, derives from the Land of Judea and all of the Land of Israel where the spiritual center of Judaism (Jerusalem) is present!

In other words:
Arabia (Saudi Arabia)= Arabic = Islam = Mecca = Palestinians.
Judea (Kingdom of Judah) = Hebrew = Judaism = Jerusalem = Jews.

Fact to Consider: If Jews "stole" so-called Palestinian land, someone had to "steal" it from the Jews to began with! Did they not?
Biblical Fact: The word "steal" is not in the following biblical verse from the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel that emphatically states the direct words of the God of Israel: "Thus saith YHVH GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into THEIR OWN LAND: (emphasis mine) And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel..." - Ezekiel 37:21-22

Jew-Hater Myth-Claim: The Palestinians are the descendants of the Canaanites and Philistines and therefore they were there in Canaan before the Israelites. Therefore the land belongs to the Palestinians.
My Response: Its amazing how fast both the Muslim and anti-Zionist Christians jump on the bandwagon in defense of the anti-covenant and cursed people of the Hebrew Bible known as the Canaanites and Philistines, who worshiped the false gods of Baal, Astarte, and Dagon. Its like they choose to side with Israel's biblical heathen enemy in order to justify their taking the side of Israel's modern enemy! Amazing isn't it?

There is a reason why the first century New Testament along with historians like Josephus and Philo from that era never referred to nor mentioned the Canaanites or the Philistines. It was simply because the Canaanites / Philistines had already disappeared as a distinct group centuries before Josephus and Philo was born! This disappearance was in line with the Hebrew prophets:
"Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of YHVH is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant." - Zephaniah 2:5
"And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, (of Gaza) and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines" - Zacharia 9:6

What unites a people as a nation is language, culture, and a common history. Not one single unit of these three elements connect the modern so-called Palestinians with the disappeared ancient Philistines / Canaanites. From their Arabic-derived names, Arabic spoken language, worship of the Arabian-god Allah, and Islamic Middle Eastern customs, there is absolutely nothing within the so-called Palestinian society that would even as much as hint that they are even remotely linked to the ancient Aegean-originated Philistines or Canaanites. It is obvious that the only reason for the Canaanite / Philistine claim, was because the Jewish claim to the land is so overwhelmingly strong! For just the opposite is true concerning ancient and modern Israel.

As historian Barbara Tuchman has expressed: "Israel is the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago."

The Tefillin or (phylacteries in Greek) along with tallit (prayer shawl) found in excavations at Qumran (an archaeological site in the so-called West Bank from 134-104 BCE) are of the same style and shape Jews use today in religious services, not to mention the Qumran scrolls written in the same language and applied to religious life of modern Israeli Jews!

Fact: The is a reason why the ancient Roman coins that commemorate Roman victory and supremacy over the region (66–70 C.E.) never boast, "Palestine Capta" but rather "Judea Capta" meaning "Judea is captured". The Romans knew more than what the Jew-haters of today are willing to admit in modern times; that the region was a Judean-Jewish national homeland!

Jew-Hater Myth Claim: "Muslim Arabs are Semites too, therefore, an Arab can't be anti-Semitic."
My Response: This asinine statement is the same as saying, "South Americans are Americans too. Therefore, Hugo Chavez from the South American country of Venezuela cannot be anti-American." Why I've heard so many Jew-haters use this line is beyond me. It is like they're are scratching for ways to cast off the reality of antisemitism (Jew-hatred) they know is so prevalent within the Muslim-Arab religious culture.

Fact: German and pre-Nazi Jew-hater, Wilham Marr coined the term "antisemitism" in 1879 of which he used to single out the Jews of Germany of which he admittedly despised>
Therefore, the origin of the term "antisemitism" reflects pre-Nazi German Jewish-hatred for the "only" Semitic people living within Germany at the time which was "Das Juden"!

Bottom Line Fact: The coiner of the term "antisemitism" reflects Wilham Marr's own inner Jew-hatred as the only true definition to the term. This fact only deepens the true nature and meaning behind the term.

Jew-Hater Myth Claim: The Jews / Zionists control the world media.
My Response
: Most all Jew-haters who use this Hitler-old cliche' also are the ones who are quick to point to anti-Zionists Jewish groups such as the Neturei Karta in an effort to build support for their anti-Jewish / Zionists agenda. Therefore, my sarcastic response to them is, "Oh, you are so right about the Jewish-media claim, but its the Neturei Karta "Jews" who give full support to Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that is controlling the world media! This is also why we never hear the world medias encouraging Jews to make Aliyah to Israel like a good Zionist-controlled media would naturally do! Why those Jewish-Neturei Karta media-controlling blood-suckers!"
After I purposely demonstrate a couple minutes of laughter, I then ask the Jew-hater if Helen Thomas and CNN's Rick Sanchez were apart of Zionist controlled media for all the many years they influences the media? >

: If the Jewish-Zionists would have controlled the German media instead of the Gentile-Nazis from 1933 to 1945, forty-four million Gentiles and six million Jews added to that total would not have had to go to their deaths prematurely.

Jew-Haters Myth Claim
: The Jews / Zionists will start World War III.
My Response: Hitler's early claim was that the Jews (Zionists) will start World War II. Do I sense a connection here from today's modern Jew-haters? Of course I do.
I believe a little sarcasm is in store here: Whatever we do, let's never criticize the the worse human rights abusers with nuclear weapons like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-il, right? Let's just have ourselves a European Gentile vote in the land of the Holocaust that proclaims that the Zionist State of Jewish Israel is the most dangerous country in the world.3 And let's claim that Israel has a willingness to start WWIII by having the audacity to defend itself, after 10,000 plus Kassum rockets are fired into its population centers (including Jewish elementary schools) by those who are definitely not wanting to start WWIII - namely Hamas, Hezebollah, and Islamic Jihad? I believe I "got it"!

Fact Question: As the Sunnis and Shiites we're killing each other down through the centuries, and while the Catholic and Protestants were doing the same, not to mention the spread of Islam by the sword into Christian Europe and the Christian Crusaders that followed, who were the Jews / Zionists fighting and killing in the same manner? Yet, its these children of Jewish Zionist Israel who will supposedly start WWIII instead of the children of Global Jihad and the children of who started the Holocaust, Pogroms, Inquisitions, Crusades? I believe I "got it" again!

Jew-Hater Myth Claim: The Jews / Zionists are Nazis.
My Response: They simply accuse according to their guilt while seeking to be portrayed as their innocent victims.
Fact: The Jewish people as a whole are the most qualified people to say who is "Nazi-like" - not the Holocaust-causing Gentiles!
Fact II: Any "Nazi-alike" people of today will naturally be Jew-Haters just like the Nazis hated Jews. Gee, I wonder what people that might include?
Fact III: The obvious reality of the Jew-hatred ideology-linkage between today's Nazi-alike people and Hitler's Nazi regime of the past is the very precise reason why the Nazi-alike people of today refer to their objects of hatred as "Zionists" in order to try to hide that obvious ideology-linkage reality!
  • The August, 2005 Gaza Expulsion wasn't targeted to make Gaza "Zionists Free" but rather to make Gaza a Nazi-like "Judenrein" land!
  • Jordain law doesn't in word form forbid "Zionists" from becoming Jordain citizens, but specifies "Jews" cannot become Jordain citizens.
  • Saudi Arabia doesn't limit travel restrictions to "Zionists" but to all "Jews".
  • Swastikas spray painted on grave-sites from all over the world are not targeting those with "Zionists ideology" per se, but rather targets Jewish graves based upon their race and religion!
  • Synagogue-bombing and thwarted synagogue-bombings all over the world such as the El Ghriba Synagogue in the Tunisian Island of Djerba, the Bet Israel and Neve Shalom synagogues in Istanbul, Turkey, the Shaar Hashamayim synagogue in Cairo, Egypt, the Central Synagogue in London, England, and (most recent) the Emanuel synagogue (one of four) in the Chicago area, were not built on "Zion Hill" in Israel and the Jews attending these synagogues have not moved to "Zion Hill". The most obvious reason for their being targeted is not because they are Zionist like any Gentile (like myself can be) but simply because they are Jewish representing Judaism!
  • The following Islamic hadith that is considered to be both holy and authoritative (known as "sahih sittah" meaning "reliable collections") does NOT contain the word "Zionist" throughout the entire context: “The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim or servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him” - Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj al-Qushari ( 821 - 873 AD) Book 41 No. 6985
  • From the Palestinian "Mufti of Jerusalem" Haj Amin Al Husseini embracing the Nazi ideology of Jew-murder to Mein Kamph being a Palestinian "best seller" as late as 2003, "Zionism" is the spiritual object that is hated while "the Jew" is the physical object of what is hated. See photos above.
  • Zionists / Jews are not named after Hitler - not even the anti-Zionists Jews! It is the "anti-Zionists" Jew-haters who wish to carry the Hitler memory in their very personal names who are the without a doubt, the "Nazi-likes": >
Jew Hater Myth Claim: The Israeli Zionists / Jews massacres innocent Palestinians.
My Response: The so-called Palestinians officially deny the existence of both historic Jewish temples regardless of the statements found in the Hebrew Bible and Christian text, and regardless what archeology reveals. They deny the Holocaust of which their elected leader Mahmoud Abbas' doctoral thesis including Holocaust minimizing! They have by choice, elected by an overwhelming landslide victory in 2006, the political party of Hamas, whose charter subscribes to "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" and the Hitler Mein Kamph myth of a Free Mason - Jewish conspiracy connection.

The Israeli Defense Force sends out official radio announcements, telephones calls, and drops millions of pamphlets warning by-standards of military strikes on known terrorist hideouts, while Hamas sends out unannounced Qassam rockets willfully targeting Jewish population centers including elementary schools. Yet with such a lie-on-the-Jew-of-what-we're-guilty-of mentality, we're supposed to believe these devils when they claim "massacre" when a by standard gets killed as a human-shield that they themselves were using as a human-shield? >

Jew-Hater Myth Claim: Many of the Nazis were in fact part Jewish (mischlinge in German) who wore Nazi uniforms. The Palestinians never wore Nazi uniforms, so who are the real Nazis?
My Response: With sarcasm I like to respond, "Oh, those were the anti-Zionists Jews of Germany!" Here is what I wrote to a Jew-Hater from Baton Rouge, Louisiana who challenged me with this claim:

Point 1 It's amazing how you focus in on the "Jewish portion" of a "Mischlinge" and not the Gentile part isn't it? This shows your willingness to attack whatever is "Jewish" in your Jew-hating agenda doesn't it? Shouldn't the "Gentile part" of them be "blamed" in your eyes just as much, or does that portion of their race get off the hook?

Point 2 Jews have historically fought (and fought well) whatever "host" country they happened to be in. Germany was no different. However, it wasn't the Mischlinge that “started” or “maintained” the Nazi party until Hitler’s death was it?

Point 3 It was the Schutzstaaffel (SS) that control the Death and Concentration Camps such as Auschwitz and others. It was "never" the regular German military such as the Wehrmarch and the Luftwaffe of witch some Mischlings served. The same principle applies concerning the Gestapo and the Einsatzgruppen, for it was highly forbidden to have any Jewish blood in these "master race" high-Nazi government agencies.
So how many Mischlinges were in the Gestapo, Einsatzgruppen, and Schutzstaaffel all put together? The answer is "ZERO".

Point 4. Did "Palestinian religious leader" Haj Amin Al-Hussieni meet with the head of the Wehrmarch and the Luftwaffe in November, 1941 or the Head of the Gestapo, Einsatzgruppen, Schutzstaaffel which was Hitler himself?

Point 5 How many Wehrmarch "Mischlinges" soldiers were indicted for war crimes?
The answer is ZERO.
Now, how many full-blood German Nazi personal friends of Palestinian leader Haj. Amin Al-Husseini were indicted for war crimes? Answer is, several.

Point 6. Why did Nazi Agent "Adam Vollhardt" arrived in Palestine in July 1938? Was it to meet with Mischlinges or Zionist? or to meet with your beloved Jew-hating Palestinians? >,7340,L-3248081,00.html

Point 7. We know the "Jewish Brigade" (who were full-blooded Jews / Zionists by the way) severed the Allies in the British Forces but what side were the so-called Palestinian Arabs on? Perhaps the answer to this question lies in the fact that the Arabic Version of Mein Kampf is "still" on the Palestinian "best sellers" list?

Point 8 The fact that Erwin Rommel's advance through the Middle East (with support of the Muslim Brotherhood) was stopped in El Alamein by the Allies prevented the Arab Palestinians from wearing their desired Nazi uniforms. Otherwise we would have indeed have today, historical pictures of Palestinians wearing Nazi uniforms just as they had already used the Swastika. Not to mention a further advancement of the of the Holocaust on into Palestine as the Palestinian Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al-Husseini had requested of Hitler just weeks before the Final Solution conference at Wannsee.
However, what we do have is the 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Hanjar uniforms worn by thousands of Muslims of whom "Palestinian religious leader" and Hitler admirer, Haj Amin Al-Hussieni recruited and oversaw, don't we?

Fact: Bosnian ethnic cleansing under Haj Amin al Husseini:
  • Orthodox Christian Serbs: 200,000 murdered.
  • Jewish Bosnians: 22,000 murdered.
  • Gypsies: over 40,000 murdered.
  • There is a famous picture of Husayni inspecting his Muslims Nazi SS troops in 1943. >
Jew-Hater Myth Claim: The Zionists collaborated with the Nazis.
My Response: This is just another twist of many clams in an attempt to paint the Jews as Nazis. Even Palestinian / Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas' 1982 doctoral thesis where he "minimized" Jewish murder-deaths during the Holocaust, was titled “The Secret Connection between the Nazis and the Leaders of the Zionist Movement”.

Rule of Thumb Fact: Only a Nazi will try to paint Jews (a.k.a. Zionists) as Nazis! The goal is to make a role switch of history between the Final Solution villains and their Holocaust victims.

Historical Fact: According to Mein Kamph, Hitler not only agreed with the "Protocols of the Learn Elders of Zion" but saw an establishment of a Jewish state as a "central organization for their (Jews) international swindling and cheating". So where on the highest level of Nazism (being Hitler himself) is this supposedly ideology connection between the Zionists and Nazism?

Bottom Line Fact: Any and all cooperation between the Zionist organizations and the Nazis between 1933 and 1938 were founded upon convenience of both sides. The Nazis wanted Germany to be Jew / Zionist free (Judenrein) and the Zionists wanted a Jew-filled Jewish state. Therefore, as Robert S. Wistrich put it in his book entitled "A Lethal Obsession" Palestine was used by the Nazis as a "convenient dumping ground for unwanted German Jews". This fact is something the Jew-haters will never mention as a possible answer to such an accusation, because their agenda is to damn the Jews anyway they can.

Another Bottom Line Fact: From its very beginning the Jewish State of Israel has opposed National Socialism. So much for the Zionism cooperation / collaboration (Jew-hating based) theories! However, National Socialism in the Middle East is notorious for Jew / Zionist hatred and Jew (Nazi-like) murder. As the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) still waves an uncanny resemblance of the Swastika on their flag (see picture above) like the Nazis of old, this National Socialists Middle Eastern Islamic culture has much Jewish blood (Jewish Zionist blood) on their evil socialist hands! Wow, who would have guessed, right?

I will be adding a response to the DNA issue very soon - February, 2011

1. I have to give Martin Luther King Jr. a hand of applause in seeing the post-Holocaust terminology change among the world Jew-haters long before most recognized it. I guess the reason for Dr. King's insight was because he was very enlightened on racial issues.
"When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You are talking anti-Semitism." - Martin Luther King Jr. Harvard University, 1968

The first public use of switching the usage of "Jews" for "Zionists" came only seven years after the Holocaust when the Soviet backed newspapers in Prague referred to the eleven Jews connected with the 1952 international "Slánský Trial" as "Zionists" due to the Jewish fate in the Holocaust being so recent at the time.

. The Holocaust was the climax of literally a thousand plus years of Christian Europe's Jew-hatred, especially in the generations just before Hitler. Even before Hitler's rise to power there was the German saying "Deutschland erwache Juda verrecke" meaning, "Germany awakes, Judea kicks the bucket". However, in the short 63 years Israel has been a world recognized state, there is quite a bit more "world hatred" for Israeli Jews that there was just before the Holocaust. Holocaust denying world leaders such as the Iranian President Ahmadinejad has risen on the scene with world powers showing an unwillingness to hinder his Jew / Judaism annihilating nuclear agenda.
3. In October 2003, just two years after the Durban conference, a European Union survey was conducted at the request of the European Union Commission. Hundreds of people were surveyed from each of the EU's member nations which included 15 countries. The survey revealed that 59% of all Europeans believed that Israel is the greatest threat to world peace and is in-fact the most dangerous country on the earth. A year before that survey in 2002 a British survey was done by the Daily Telegraph revealed that the British public views Israel as one of the five “least friendly”, “least beautiful”, and “least deserving of international respect”

The Star of David verses the Crescent Moon

It is very common for the Jew / Judaism - hating Islamic apologists to attack the Zionism symbol and national emblem which is the "Star of David" (Hebrew: Magen David מָגֵן דָּוִד). Therefore, it's only fitting to examine the Star of David in comparison with it's main opponent - the Islamic national symbol of the Crescent Moon (Arabic: هلال hilāl).

The hexagram is not an original symbol of Judaism such as is the much older symbol - the menorah. The hexagram was adopted by Judaism to represent the famous King David and his offspring (also called the "Seal of Solomon") within the Jewish community that from it would come the long awaited Jewish messiah (Hebrew: Mashiach ben David).
"...there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. " - Numbers 24:17

From the time of the original Torah text all the way to the second century during the time of the thought to be messiah, Simon ben Kosiba, given the surname "Bar Kokhba" (Aramaic: "Son of a Star") Judaism has associated their messiah with a symbol of a star.1 There is a Star of David symbol that was carved on an arch-stone left on the ruins of a 3rd. / 4th. century synagogue in the Galilee of Israel that I have seen with my own eyes. Therefore, it's not surprising that the oldest surviving complete copy of the Masoretic text - the Leningrad Codex of 1008 C.E., contains the Star of David. The modern Zionist movement also used the then known "Star of David" on their original flag in 1891. This modern Zionist flag, along with the very long history of the Star of David, culminated into today's Israeli national flag. The Israeli flag consist of the Star of David, two prayer-shawl stripes (Hebrew: tallit) in the color of "tekhelet" blue - the special spiritual color for the tzitzit - (fringes / tallit strings). See Numbers 15:38

Even though Arabic terminology recognizes Judaism's thought on this "Star of David" (Arabic: نجمة داوود, Najmat Dāwūd or "Seal of Solomon" خاتم سليمان Khātem Sulaymān) some Islamic apologists will attack this symbol claiming it to be a pagan symbol thereby giving a damning representation of the Jews who refuse to follow Allah and his final, and most glorious prophet-messenger, Mohammad. However, it is not widely known that many Islamic historical artifacts such as Moroccan coins of 1873 and the Karamanids (the Flag of Karaman 1250C.E. - 1487C.E.) actually displayed the Star of David in the hexagon form!.2 Talk about a "moment of pause" effect that such facts cause when I surprisingly throw these facts into the debate with Islamic apologists. Its almost like I can see (like Cain) their countenance fall, even through the internet.

If you are a Muslim reading this as a referral from our debate on another form, be advised that every single photo of the Star of David image above on this blog are not on Jewish religious structures but on your religious Islamic structures! Ooh, that has to hurt! Oh yes, the photos above include the Islamic Qutb Complex in Delhi, India, the Jameh Mosque in Iran, a mosque in Begova, Saragevo, and the old Ulu Mosque in Bursa, Turkey. They show the Star of David being on Islamic religious structures in basically every part of the Islamic world. Of course these photos are not the end of the list. They are just a few that I posted without inundating this blog with pictures. But given this Star of David upon Islamic religious structures fact, I can't help but think how such an amazing fact becomes a real show-stopper in addressing claims by willfully-ignorant Islamic apologist that the Star of David is a paganism symbol.

In all of their ridiculous claims and doctrines Islam apologists never fails to come up with a wild-asinine3 proof-text from the Hebrew Bible in order to make an attempt at proving their Islam. On this Star of David claim they point to Amos 5:26 that reads in the English KJV: "But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves".

To the Islamic apologist, this is a damning proof-text of the origin and creation of the Jewish Star of David that now appears on the Israeli flag. The original Hebrew states it this way: "and you will carry Siccuth your king, and Chiun your images, Kochav your god, which you made to yourselves." "Kochav" meaning "star" of whom the prophet Amos was referring was the very name of an idol-god, not just a carved out symbol of some star. Further response to this ridiculous wild-asinine Islamic claim is as follows:
  • The hexagram that appears of the 3rd. / 4th. century in the Galilee of Israel (mentioned above) is the oldest known usage of this symbol among the Israelites. That's 7 to 8 centuries "after" the time of Amos!
  • In all of known Judaism history (secular or religious) the hexagram shape never symbolized the God of Israel or any other deity. It "always" represented King David and his offspring concerning the everlasting covenant YHVH made with him. This is why the symbol is called "The Star of David" or the "Seal of Solomon" in reference to David's son.
  • The false-deity usage of "Kochav" during the time of the prophet Amos resulted in the God of Israel promising to exile these Israelites from out of the land of Israel. See Amos 5:27 - the very next verse after the so-called Islamic proof text of Amos 5:26. However, we see just the opposite of Amos 5:27 concerning this more modern Star of David. Ever since the national usage of this symbol the Jews from around the world are being gathered and returning back into the land of Israel. Amazing huh?
  • From the time of Mohammad himself until the modern Zionist movement of the nineteenth century (610 CE to 1891 CE - 1281 years) no Islamic scribe, historian, sage, ayatollah, mullah, mufti, or common imam, had ever stated anything negative concerning the Star of David emblem that they themselves used on their artifacts and in their mosques. One can search the entire Koran, the hadiths (from both Sunni and Shia sources), rulings of the caliphs or legal fatwas of Islamic history, and not find a single notation against the six-pointed Star of David symbol!
The Star of David was only a vision-symbol (like the vision-image given in Numbers 24:17) and was never a representation of an actual natural star within the physical heavens of which the pagans physically looked towards in their worship (see Jeremiah 10:2)4. This is something to spiritually consider when examining Islam's religious symbol - the Crescent Moon.

The Crescent Moon
The crescent moon pagan symbol that we see today at the top of Islamic religious minaret prayer towers, mosque domes, coins, and national flags, goes all the way back the time of the biblical judges.
"...And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took the crescents that were on their camels' necks." - Judges 8:21 American Standard Version (ASV)

The Hebrew word "ha-sa-ha-ronim" that the ASV correctly translates as "crescents" does indeed mean (in the plural) "a round moon-shaped crescent ornament". The two kings "Zebah and Zalmunna" that Gideon killed were Midian kings (see Judges 8:12 and 8:26). Midian was in the region of northwest Arabia. Therefore, can we see a biblical picture being developed here connecting the Arab people of Midian and their crescent pagan ornaments. I mean, what kind of god(s) did these two Midian kings worship with their crescent-moon ornaments hanging around their camels' necks? The one true God of Israel that their slayer Gideon worshiped or their pagan false god(s) of Midian and the Arab people worshiped? This is a simple question that any Islamic apologist should address.

Again, this Arabian crescent-moon symbol is unlike the mystical / spiritual Star of David in that the crescent-moon symbol refers to an actual celestial body which is the tangible lunar-moon in its astronomical waxing or waning crescent phase. Pre-Islam Arabia had 360 false gods that were worshiped at the Ka'aba in Mecca. The chief-god of this pantheon of Arabian of gods was non-other than "Allah" (meaning "the god") who had one of three daughters or consort (depending on the region of Arabia) named "Allat" meaning "the goddess"5. This Ilah, or chief god, was worshiped in the form of the physical moon much like the Egyptian god Ra was worshiped in the form of the physical sun. Also, the Arabian calender is the only one of its kind that is solely lunar based6 showing the emphasis on moon consciences within the Arabian culture and societies both ancient and present. Thus, the picture becomes even more clearer in linking pagan moon-worship (via a false god named Allah) within the land of Arabia.

Many Islamic apologists will pass off the Islamic religious symbol of the crescent moon (along with the star) as a non-meaningful adoption of the Constantinople Christian symbol after the Islamic takeover of that major city (now Istanbul) in 1453. However, the crescent moon of Christian Constantinople (306 CE to 1453 CE) was an adopted symbol from the pre-Christian pagan city of Byzantium itself. The fact is that the crescent moon symbol of the ancient pagan city of Byzantium was the city's veneration of the goddess Diana / Artemis. The star that now co-exist with the crescent moon symbol was added during the Christian-Constantinople period of the city to represent the birth of Jesus as the crescent moon took on the reference to the Virgin Mary replacing the goddess Diana.

Therefore, the bottom line facts concerning the Jewish symbol of the Star of David verses the Islamic symbol of the Crescent Moon and star are these:
  • Though the hexagram is not originally Hebrew in design it was adopted by Jews / Judaism many centuries ago, not as a deity symbol of any kind, borrowed or created, but as a reference to King David and the Davinic Covenant and is based largely upon the Torah text of Numbers 14:27.
  • The Jewish Star of David has been used as an "ensign" (see Isaiah 5:26 / Isaiah 11:12) that under the current Zionism movement is calling Jews from all over the world back to their ancient homeland of Israel, just as the Hebrew prophets prophesied.
  • The prayer shawl stripes along with its spiritual color of tekhelet blue, gives the Star of David shape upon the Israeli flag its special ensign spiritual meaning.
  • The Islamic Crescent Moon symbol has direct spiritual links to Arabian and other false gods and goddesses.
  • The Crescent Moon false god(s) symbol can be traced biblically in the Hebrew text of Judges 8:21 compared with Judges 8:12 and 8:26 of the same textual material.
  • The keeping of the pagan chief moon-god name of "Allah" as the most personal name of God, along with the lunar-based calender "holy" months such as "Ramadan", and such things as the veneration of the meteorite Ka'aba Stone, and many other pre-Islamic rituals, show that the religion of Islam is founded upon celestial-body pagan worship that continues today by masking itself as the Hebrew God of Israel, YHVH.
1. This also includes the first-century New Testament background with the "Wise Men" seeing the messianic star in the east. See Matthew 2:2-9.
2.ğlu and
3. The original Hebrew calls Ishmael and his descendants a "peh-rea a-dam" literally, a "wild-ass man" in Genesis 16:12. We therefore see this wild-ass nature being expressed in his "wild-asinine" religious statements and claims against the everlasting covenant that the God of Israel has with the Jewish people. This same verse goes on to tell of his terrorist-nature: "...his hand (his jihadic Islam) against everyone, and everyone's hand (The Christians and the Jews) against him."
4. This act can also include the paganism aspects within Christianity. The physical star that the New Testament "wise men" followed is depicted at the top of most modern Christmas trees. The Hebrew prophet Jeremiah covers this five-pointed Christmas Star (not limited to placement on Christmas trees) and the Christmas tree itself in Jeremiah 10:2-4.
5. I have read many of the same report on many different web-sites by non-archeologists that a rock inscription has been discover at Adumattu, Arabia that reads, "May Allat (goddess) grant every wish" of which contains an image of the crescent moon and star. Verification by professional archeologists is needed for confirmation.
6. The Greco-Roman calender is solar based and the Hebrew Biblical calender both solar and lunar based. The Islamic calender is the only one of the monotheistic religions that is solely lunar based.

Answering Islam's Claim of Jewish Scripture Corruption

Mohammed's goal in claiming that the Hebrew Bible has been altered / corrupted via the Koran1 is three-fold.
  1. It serves the intent to delegitimize the ancient Biblical reality that in no possible way could ever recognize a non-Jewish prophet to Israel, nor another "chosen people" during the time of the Jewish prophets nor during the time their prophesies of the future concerning Israel.
  2. It allows one single man (Mohammad himself) with his revelation to inject anything he wanted to be taken as the supposedly inspired word of God regardless of how it contradicted the Torah and the many Hebrew prophets.
  3. The corruption charge allows a "fix" for the obvious totally different themes between the Hebrew Bible and the Koran. Without the corruption charge it becomes greatly evident that Mohammad and his Koran are not linked to the God of the Hebrew Bible.

I find when debating Muslims that they don't want to spend a lot of time on this subject and are more than willing to quickly move on to another subject of debate. The reason for this "get off the subject" mentality can be summed up in one word - "proof". Since the whole foundation of Islam is based upon one man's revelation, historical evidence of what this one man states is not a necessity nor a priority. As part of the five pillars of Islam a "true" Muslim is required only to proclaim by faith the shahadah2 and not to investigate for themselves what the Islamic community expects them to believe and accept as "holy truth" from God.

For the Muslim apologists who feel adventurous enough, I have constructed my very own "proof-application" that allows you to prove your Islamic claim of Jewish Scripture corruption. This proof-application is at the end of this blog. Just fill in the proof answers to the questions using the post availability in the "readers comments" of this blog.

One of the questions on my "proof-application" is exactly "when" did the Jewish corruption of scriptures take place? I've had a lot of Muslims tell me that the Jews changed their scriptures because they didn't want to accept Mohammad as their prophet who was clearly revealed in the Jewish scriptures. Wow, that sounds something like what those evil known Jews might do in the ears of a willing antisemite. Since hadith-legend has it that it was a Jewish woman's poison from three years earlier is what finally killed Mohammad, why wouldn't the Jews go as far as to doctor up their scriptures in order to convince themselves Mohammad wasn't their true and last prophet?

Of course this answer creates more problems for the Muslims since such scripture corruption claim would had to occurred "after" Mohammad's birth in 570 C.E. of which any changes of Hebrew scripture would be reflected in the comparison with the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Deuteronomy Scrolls, and the Septuagint of 250 B.C.E. (some 820 years "before" the birth of Mohammed) with any post-Islam produced Hebrew text!

It must be noted that first-century Jesus (of whom I refer to as "Isa, so-called prophet of Islam" to make my point stronger when debating Muslims) in all of his criticism directed towards the Jews of his day, never one time even insinuated to the slightest degree of a Hebrew text alteration. One would think that Isa being Allah's virgin-born messiah who has a lot of airtime in the Koran and one who ridiculed the Pharisees' non-Biblical traditions (see Matthew 15:4-9) would surely expose the Jews for altering Allah's message to the prophets and to Israel?

On the other hand, Isa, the so-called prophet of Islam, vindicated the whole of the Hebrew scriptures. He stated emphatically in John 5:39 "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me". Now, for some reason he didn't state, "Search the "corrupted scriptures" for in them ye think ye have eternal life...".

In continuing in exploring this same mindset of Isa, the so-called prophet of Islam, in Matthew 5:18 he makes the very clear and direct statement, "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled." The "jot" in this statement is meaning the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet - the yod, and the "tittle" meaning any small stroke of a scribe's pen.

Therefore, Isa, so-called prophet of Islam, is stating as a matter of "spiritual fact" that not even "one" (get it? not even one single one) little very small yod letter nor not even "one" stroke of the scribes pen in his rendering the Torah of Moses will in no way be lost or unfulfilled (via corruption or otherwise) at anytime or at any place before the time of Isa, the so-called prophet of Islam himself! Muslims who believe Jesus to be Isa, a prophet of Islam, has his very word on this!

Since the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Deuteronomy Scrolls, and the Septuagint (all dating several centuries before the birth of Mohammad) shows no signs of deliberate corruption with a comparison of today's text, then perhaps Isa, so-called prophet of Islam, should be credited for being 100% accurate in stating as a matter of "spiritual fact" that literally even one of the smallest strokes of the scribe's pen and every single writing of one single (smallest letter) yod would indeed be totally preserved and uncorrupted until the time of first century Isa himself? Perhaps "the corruption" is not with the historically prove-preservation of the Hebrew text but with a non-Jewish / Jew-murdering wanna-be-prophet from Arabia named Mohammad who gave a false revelation from a lying spirit that he called Allah in Koran (sura) 2:75 / 6:115-116?

Confronted with this, Islamic apologists use the old European Christian tactic of trying to prove their religion using the Hebrew scriptures since their scriptures can't vindicate their doctrine on its own. Islamic doctrine has to go as far as having to use the so-called "corrupted Hebrew text" in order to "prove" their point. Isn't that something? In other words they have to use a what they consider a corrupted text in order to prove what they consider accurate.

Jeremiah 8:8
Islamic apologists use Jeremiah 8:8 as their Jewish scripture corruption "proof text" which reads: "How can you say, we (are) wise and YHVH's Torah (is) with us. Indeed, behold, for falsehood he made (the) pen, falsehood (are the) scribes.3"

Like most all the proof-texts within Christian theology, Islam's proof-texts are "always" taken out of context in order to get the desired Koran-accepting interpretation that Islamic apologists are seeking. Jeremiah 8:8 is in no possible way referring directly or alluding to an alteration of the written Law of Moses! I will address the obvious context of Jeremiah 8:8 further down, but first I want to show how ridiculous and how far Islamic interpretation is willing to travel, and what they spiritually refuse to consider about their interpretation.

The "facts" that Islamic apologists refuse to acknowledge that directly relates to their proof-text interpretation of Jeremiah 8:8 are as follows:
  • The Law (of Moses) that the prophet Jeremiah mentions within the short text is the same "exact" Law of Moses that Isa, so-called prophet of Islam said that not even "one" small-letter yod nor one small stroke of the pen of the written Law vanish (via corruption or otherwise) until his time on earth. (See Matthew 5:18)
  • At the time of Jeremiah's writing of Jeremiah 8:8 ("before" the Babylonian exile) not a single one of the Hebrew minor prophets4 who prophesied "after" the Babylonian exile and of whom contributes a good portion of the Hebrew Bible, had yet to write one single word of scripture. This was also the case of much of the section of the Hebrew Bible called "The Writings"5 (Ketuvim in Hebrew) that includes the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Daniel.
  • A minimum of fourteen Hebrew prophets who prophesied "after" Jeremiah and came with "Thus saith YHVH" never even as much as hinted of there being an alteration within written Law of Moses!
  • ***Here's the kicker*** It was during the very life and times of the prophet Jeremiah that a temple priest named Hilkiah found a "preserved" Law scroll (thus being unaltered I might add) that the prophetess Hulda verified and that the Bible-declared "righteous" King Josiah dedicated his very life towards! See II Chronicles 34:14-31
  • The Hebrew prophet Malachi prophesied about two hundred years "after" the prophet Jeremiah. As a prophet of YHVH Malachi gave the nation of Israel the following spiritual commandment: "Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, [with] the statutes and judgments."6 There could be no such commandment coming from a prophet of YHVH if corruption within the Law of Moses was present! This prophet's command alone demonstrates with certainty that the Law of Moses mentioned in Jeremiah 8:8 has been totally persevered.
The Context of Jeremiah 8:8
Jeremiah is admonishing Israel for having the Law of Moses (which verifies in and of itself a preserved Law of Moses) yet making even the writing of it by a religious scribe vain because it wasn't being kept. Jeremiah is setting Israel up for a deeper condemnation by him taking their own statement of fact that they were using as a cloak for their iniquity "the Law of the YHVH is with us" and using their statement of truth against them. It would be the same principle as Isa, so-called prophet of Islam, stating, ">The scribes< and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. - Matthew 23:2-3.

Perhaps Isa, so-called prophet of Islam, wouldn't tell his Jewish audience to observe something of falsehood (corruption of the Law Moses held by the Scribes and Pharisees) no more than the prophet Jeremiah would condemn Israel for having a legitimate excuse (a corrupted Law) for "not" obeying it?

This simple fact is, the temple was destroyed due to the Jews "NOT" obeying the preserved Law of Moses that Jeremiah 8:8 refers to (see Daniel 9:11-14). YHVH would be unjust in destroying the temple for the reason that the Jews did not obey the pure Law of Moses that they didn't have access to via corruption that supposedly occurred generations earlier!

The very fact that the prophet Daniel even refers to the "Law of Moses" within his own writings that came long after Jeremiah, illustrates that Daniel was accustom to reading from an uncorrupted text of the Law of Moses that caused him to know that Israel hadn't kept the pure Law of Moses. Otherwise the prophet Daniel when writing Daniel 9:11-14, would have been referring to a something corrupted while writing his holy script, which is not suggested to the slightest degree in any part of his writings.

Who is Jeremiah referring to?
There were scribes, false priests, and false prophets during the time of Jeremiah as well as other times throughout the Hebrew Bible (see Isaiah 28:7-9). They taught falsehoods against the Law of Moses often using their pen (quill) to do so such as the letter sent by Shemaiah that Jeremiah himself mentions in Jeremiah 29:25-27. Such Jews being teachers of falsehoods were before Jeremiah and came long after Jeremiah even unto this modern present day! The false prophets of Jeremiah's day are no different than what is visible of today's so-called orthodox Neturei Karta "Jewish" organization. The Neturei Karta cannot change, alter, omit, or add to the Law of Moses today just as Shemaiah or any false scribe could do during the time of Jeremiah's day.

The bottom line is that Jeremiah 8:8 is in no way referring a Hebrew scripture alteration. Such a belief only comes from a very weak Islamic position trying to use wordplay by using the Hebrew text to somehow justify their ridiculous non-Hebrew seventh-century Koranic claim.

The Name of YHVH
In my many debates with Muslims, I've actually have had some, when confronted with the 6828 times the name of YHVH is used throughout the Hebrew Bible (three times more than their favorite Elohim, El, Elah, Eloah added together) See my blog> state that the very Name of YHVH is an corruption-addition to the original Hebrew text. They will actually claim that the Aramaic is closer to the Arabic (which is a lie especially since the Aramaic uses the Hebrew alphabet) and that the Name of YHVH is not in the Aramaic version of the Hebrew Bible. This is how far some Islamic apologists are willing to go in making themselves spiritually-stupid in order to support their lying Koran!

Here are some facts in response to such an Islamic asinine (biblically a "wild-ass" according to Genesis 16:12) doctrine that seeks to destroy the God of Israel's most holy and most personal Name:
  • The Israelites most original language is Hebrew which was developed within the land of Israel not Aramaic that was developed outside of Israel. Even according to the Koran (see sura 2:53) Moses was given the Torah (that contained the introduction of the Name of YHVH in Exodus 6:2-3) long before the Babylonian exile that influenced Aramiac to be spoken among the Jews in their land of exile. There is a reason as to why the Aramaic version of the Hebrew Bible are called Targum which means "translation or interpretation" from the original Hebrew.
  • Yale University Professor of Humanities, Harold Bloom (a non-religious individual) states in his book entitled "Jesus and Yahweh" on page 128, "Yahweh must be a very old name; it is used in Deborah's great War Song (Judges Chapter 5), which is eleventh-century B.C.E. and could be the oldest text in Hebrew. There are references to the name as early as 1400 B.C.E. in Syria."
  • A letter fifth-century B.C.E. letter was written from a Jewish settlement on the island of Yeb (Elephantine) where Aswan Dam is located today. > The letter contains references to the "Temple of YHVH" in Aramaic not Hebrew.
  • Biblical names that have references within the Koran such as Jew (title), John (the Baptist), Jesus, and Zacharias all contain references to the Name of YHVH within the human name itself, not to mention my favorite when it comes to this issue: "Elijah" meaning "God is YHVH". I like to ask Islamic apologist with such a YHVH-denying claim as to what the last three letters of the name Elijah (jah) means, or the last two letters in pronunciation of the Arabic-English version of Zacharias being "Zakariyya" means.
  • The Koran itself makes reference to YHVH in the form of a title in one of the most popular verses in the Koran called Ayat-ul-Kursî . Al-Qayyum is the 63rd. of the 99 title-names for Allah found in Koran (sura 2:255) meaning, "the self-existing one". > Islam just switched the most personal Name of the God of Israel YHVH into an appellation-title (one of ninety-nine) and made the appellation-title name of Elohim / Elah (the same Hebrew /Aramac pronunciation of their mood-god deity Allah - the 'chief' god of the Arabian pantheon of gods) as His most personal name.
  • All 6828 times throughout the entire Hebrew Bible where the Name of YHVH is mentioned would have to be 6828 corruption occurrences without even a single trace of historical evidence. This would include the context of Jeremiah 8:8 - the Islamic proof-text itself - that uses the Name of YHVH just one verse prior and just one verse after (verses 7 and 9 of the same chapter). All Islamic apologist are encouraged to see the Islamic "proof-application" below.
Many non-Muslims especially Jews and Christians may think that I'm wasting my time hitting the ludicrous Jewish corruption charge aimed against the Hebrew Bible and the religion Judaism and even Christianity7. However, my goal is to reveal that Mohammad was without a doubt a spiritual liar and the very expression of a false-lying prophet based on nothing else than his revelation from the Mother Book "Ummul Katib" also known as The Preserved Tablet "Lawh al Mahfuz" (see Koran 43:2-4) which stated that the Jews corrupted their holy scriptures (Koran 2:75). Since Jews are religiously murdered literally daily in the name of Islam (such as the recent Al-Qaeda bomb shipments from Yemen to Chicago synagogues) I wish to hit at the heart and core of their evil inspiration - their Koran.

1. Koran (sura) 2:75, 6:115
2. The Shahadah is similar to the Christian profession of faith. The proclamation is usually done in Arabic (the language of Mohammed). "(ašhadu an) lā ilāha illá l-Lāhi wa (ashhadu 'anna) Muḥammadan rasūlu l-Lāhi "(I profess that) there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of god."
3. This is how I read the Hebrew text in Hebrew word for word. The words in parentheses are not part of the Hebrew sentence structure but are given in translation in order to make the English translation complete.
4. A minor prophet of the Hebrew Bible is not a tern to mean "minor" in spiritual authority or having a less spiritual message of importance. The twelve so-called "minor prophets" of the Hebrew Bible are classified as such due to their writings being a great deal less in quantity (not spiritual quality) compared with the writings of the three major prophets of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel.
5. There are three main sections of the Hebrew Bible: 1. Torah (the five books containing the Law of Moses) 2. The prophets (consisting of the messages spoken by the prophets themselves both major and minor) 3. The writings (consisting of books such as Psalms, Proverbs, Laminations, but also includes the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Daniel.
6. Malachi 4:4 according to the KJV Christian Bible. This same verse is found in Malachi 3:22 in the Hebrew Bible.
7. The fix-all to the mounting evidence contained within the first-century New Testament text that exposes Islam's doctrine and reveals Mohammad's ignorance on both the Hebrew and Christian text is simply to say that the Christian text are corrupted without a stitch of evidence as well. Isn't that so amazing and convenient?


"The Islamic Proof Application of Jewish Corruption of the Hebrew Scriptures"
This "Islamic proof" application is based upon the revelation given to Mohammad in Arabic from the Mother Book (Ummul Katib) / The Preserved Tablet (Lawh al Mahfuz) that states, "then altered it (the word of God) after they (the Jews) had understood it, and they know it" - Koran 2:75
Please answer every question with as much detail as possible. All unanswered questions will be considered that you are without historical evidence proof of your believed Jewish corruption claim. Since the Koran is what is in great question here, you as a Muslim must travel outside your Koran so that you may attempt to convince the non-Muslim world better known to you perhaps, as "Dar al-harb".

1. Please provide in complete detail "all" Hebrew texts that have been altered including all words that have been added to the Hebrew text and "all" words that have been subtracted from the Hebrew text. __________________________________________________________

2. Please provide full complete details of what all portions of the supposedly altered Hebrew text "originally stated" word for word "before" they were supposedly altered. __________________________________________________________

3. Please provide "all" exact dates (in exact calender years) as to "when" each and every altercation of the Hebrew scriptures occurred. _________________________________________________________

4. Please provide "all" exact locations (including the names of cities or nearest city) of "where" each and every altercation of the Hebrew scriptures occurred. _________________________________________________________

5. Please provide a full and complete list of each and every name(s) and title(s) of "all" Jewish persons who were supposedly involved in the altercation of the Hebrew scriptures. _________________________________________________________

6. Please provide a full and complete list of any and "all" ancient "historical sources" that would even remotely suggest that the Hebrew scriptures have been willful and deliberately altered. ________________________________________________________

7. Please explain in full and complete detail "why" 1st. century Isa, so-called prophet of Islam, who stated a lot of negative rebukes towards the Jews of his day, never mentioned the Jews being guilty of altering their scriptures. _________________________________________________________

8. Please explain in full and complete detail "why" every single prophet that prophesied "after" any scripture altercation supposedly occurred, never corrected by the "word of God" that they had, never corrected the Holy Hebrew scriptures. __________________________________________________________

9. Outside the obvious "picking and choosing" of certain Hebrew scriptures that Islam wants to use in order to paint Mohammad into the Hebrew scriptures such as Deuteronomy 18:15, on what non-bias basis causes you to be sure that such scriptures themselves are not altered in like-manner of the ones that you believe are? __________________________________________________________

10. Please explain in full detail "why" you don't think it's hypocritical of Islam to claim a Jewish corruption of the Hebrew scriptures of which no name(s) location(s) or years are given as a source, when Uthman (644 - 656 C.E.) had four men rewrite the "Hafsah codex" that caused such a great four-way division that he had all previous versions burned in a place in or near Medina where he died. __________________________________________________________

Note: These simple claim-proving questions shouldn't be difficult to answer given the fact that the Hebrew Bible is the most widely bought and read book in the history of mankind. Given it's world-wide popularity it would be impossible for any sufficient change of the context to go unnoticed and unrecorded as was the case when Islamic history recorded a corrupted Koran controversy concerning the caliph Uthman burning earlier versions that differ from today's accepted Koran. Therefore, any reluctance towards taking such a challenge demonstrates just how weak Islam is when put to the test.
