Hating Without Distinction
Thomas A. Droleskey
So, what am I? Chopped liver? Article after article of mine which mentioned the pernicious effort of Judeo-Masonry to silence all mention of the Holy Name of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in public discourse appeared in The Remnant and Catholic Family News for a period of several years. Obviously, the thought police associated with the Southern Poverty Law Center did not deem those articles worthy of mention in their effort to do the bidding of the Modernists in the Vatican' by seeking to tar all "radical" traditionalists with the label of "anti-Semitic." Nor does it appear that my own appearance at the Fatima Conference at Mount Saint Michael's in Spokane, Washington, three months ago or my having spoken at the Midwest Catholic Forum in South Bend, Indiana, in 2004 (along with such notorious "anti-Semites" as Michael Matt, John Vennari, Father Nicholas Gruner, Brother Anthony Mary) rose to the level that would place me in the pantheon of the dozen "hate" organizations listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Perhaps this article will rectify the matter once and for all.
In all seriousness, though, it was eight months ago that I wrote an article entitled
Do You Believe in the Apostles' Creed? which dealt with the simple fact that all of our internecine battles will pale into insignificance as those who hate anyone who believes in the authentic Catholic Faith, regardless of any of our own distinctions and disputes, start to attack us for holding fast to the same Faith that impelled Saint Peter, the first Pope, to leave the Upper Room in Jerusalem on Pentecost Sunday for uttering these words to over 3,000 Jews:
But Peter standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and spoke to them: Ye men of Judea, and all you that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known to you, and with your ears receive my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day:
But this is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass, in the last days, (saith the Lord,) I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And upon my servants indeed, and upon my handmaids will I pour out in those days of my spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will shew wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath: blood and fire, and vapour of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you, by miracles, and wonders, and signs, which God did by him, in the midst of you, as you also know:This same being delivered up, by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you by the hands of wicked men have crucified and slain. Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the sorrows of hell, as it was impossible that he should be holden by it. For David saith concerning him: I foresaw the Lord before my face: because he is at my right hand, that I may not be moved.
For this my heart hath been glad, and any tongue hath rejoiced: moreover my flesh also shall rest in hope. Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, nor suffer thy Holy One to see corruption. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life: thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. Ye men, brethren, let me freely speak to you of the patriarch David; that he died, and was buried; and his sepulchre is with us to this present day. Whereas therefore he was a prophet, and knew that God hath sworn to him with an oath, that of the fruit of his loins one should sit upon his throne.
Foreseeing this, he spoke of the resurrection of Christ. For neither was he left in hell, neither did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised again, whereof all we are witnesses. Being exalted therefore by the right hand of God, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath poured forth this which you see and hear. For David ascended not into heaven; but he himself said: The Lord said to my Lord, sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.
Therefore let all the house of Israel know most certainly, that God hath made both Lord and Christ, this same Jesus, whom you have crucified. Now when they had heard these things, they had compunction in their heart, and said to Peter, and to the rest of the apostles: What shall we do, men and brethren? But Peter said to them: Do penance, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins: and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all that are far off, whomsoever the Lord our God shall call. And with very many other words did he testify and exhort them, saying: Save yourselves from this perverse generation. (Acts 2: 14-40)
Those words uttered by Saint Peter on the birthday of the Catholic Church, Pentecost Sunday, began the missionary work of the Church to convert all men in the world, including Jews, to the true Church, outside of which there is no salvation. This missionary work, which is rejected by the ethos of conciliarism, was hated by the Jews of the Sanhedrin in the time of the Apostles. This missionary work is hated by the Jews of the Talmud in our own day. The Jews of the Sanhedrin sought to use intimidation and brute force to stop the spread of the Gospel of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Jews of the Talmud, a book that preaches actual hatred of Our Lord and contains blasphemies against Him and His Most Blessed Mother, seek to use the threat of lawsuits and the mass media to tar anyone and everyone who dares to hold fast to the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church as one who is full of hated for Jews, disregarding the simple Catholic truth that it is an act of true love to seek the conversion of all men to the means of salvation that God Himself has instituted to effect their return to Him by means of dying in states of Sanctifying Grace.
Saint Peter's discourse on the first Pentecost Sunday prompted 3,000 men to convert to the Catholic Church:
They therefore that received his word, were baptized; and there were added in that day about three thousand souls. (Acts 2: 41)
The Jews of the Sanhedrin sought to silence all mention of the Holy Name of the Divine Redeemer. Thus, the Jews of the Talmud today who seek to silence us by tarring us all as "anti-Semitic" are in essence saying to us what the Sanhedrin told Saint Peter nearly two millennia ago after he had restored sight to a blind mind in the Name of the Lord Jesus:
Saying: What shall we do to these men? for indeed a known miracle hath been done by them, to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: it is manifest, and we cannot deny it. But that it may be no farther spread among the people, let us threaten them that they speak no more in this name to any man. And calling them, they charged them not to speak at all, nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answering, said to them: If it be just in the sight of God, to hear you rather than God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. (Acts 4: 16-20)
Saint Peter and the other Apostles did not obey the the Jews of the Sanhedrin any more than we must permit ourselves to be intimidated by the Jews of the Talmud today. The Apostles rejoiced when they were deemed worthy of ill-treatment for the sake of the Name. So we must we, taking for our inspiration this passage from the Acts of the Apostles, which recounts a dispute within the Sanhedrin as to how to deal with the Apostles after it was apparent that they would not permit themselves to be intimidated:
Then went the officer with the ministers, and brought them without violence; for they feared the people, lest they should be stoned. And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest asked them, Saying: Commanding we commanded you, that you should not teach in this name; and behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and you have a mind to bring the blood of this man upon us. But Peter and the apostles answering, said: We ought to obey God, rather than men. The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom you put to death, hanging him upon a tree.
Him hath God exalted with his right hand, to be Prince and Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins. And we are witnesses of these things and the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to all that obey him. When they had heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they thought to put them to death. But one in the council rising up, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, respected by all the people, commanded the men to be put forth a little while. And he said to them: Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what you intend to do, as touching these men.
For before these days rose up Theodas, affirming himself to be somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all that believed him were scattered, and brought to nothing. After this man, rose up Judas of Galilee, in the days of the enrolling, and drew away the people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as consented to him, were dispersed. And now, therefore, I say to you, refrain from these men, and let them alone; for if this council or this work be of men, it will come to nought; But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest perhaps you be found even to fight against God. And they consented to him. And calling in the apostles, after they had scourged them, they charged them that they should not speak at all in the name of Jesus; and they dismissed them.
And they indeed went from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were accounted worthy to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus. And every day they ceased not in the temple, and from house to house, to teach and preach Christ Jesus. (Acts 5: 26-42)
The Jews of the Sanhedrin were in alliance with the Roman authorities that were occupying Palestine at the time. The Jews of the Talmud today are in alliance with the Roman authorities who are occupying ecclesiastical offices under false pretenses today. The Jews of the Sanhedrin did not want the Holy Name of Our Lord mentioned. The caesars and their minions did not want any religion to replace the false worship of the empire. Similarly, the false prelates of conciliarism do not want the true religion they have rejected to once again influence the lives of Catholics and to thus replace their synthetic religion that is leading to the One World Church. These false prelates are content to work behind the scenes as they use the Jews of the Talmud to disparage their most vocal critics, including those who recognize their ecclesiastical legitimacy and those who do not.
Consider, for example, what Benedict XVI said just a few days ago that some in the media make it difficult for there to be arrive at
“critical synthesis of faith." As he is on record as having written (as Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger) to a layman in the United States that Mr. John Vennari, the editor of Catholic Family News, was an "enemy" of John Paul II, it is not at all out of the question that he, Benedict, looks with great favor upon the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center to "discredit" his chief critics, most of whom are simply adhering to the Faith of our fathers and who have true love for all men, including the Jews of the Talmud, because they seek to bring them into the true Sheepfold of Christ that is the Catholic Church so that they can know the authentic peace that comes from being in a state of Sanctifying Grace--and so that they can know an increase of that Sanctifying Grace in their souls by means of the frequent and worthy reception of Holy Communion and the frequent use of the Sacrament of Penance.
Thus it is that Benedict plays the role of Nero and Trajan and Diocletian as Catholics who seek the eternal good of the Jews of the Talmud are tarred and feathered as "anti-Semites" merely for discussing the role these people have played in the systematic effort to make war against the immutable truths of the Catholic Faith in every aspect of popular culture. Thus it is that we see all too clearly that the goals of the conciliarists and of the Jews of the Talmud are one and the same: to replace the authentic patrimony of the Catholic Church, which sought to convert all men and their nations to the Reign of Christ the King, both personally and socially with the Judeo-Masonic concept of a generic "religiosity" that is not denominationally and does not seek with urgency the conversion of anyone to the Catholic Church.
Pope Saint Pius X warned about such an approach in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles, and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.
No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker - the City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is: it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. omnia instaurare in Christo. . . .
We fear that worse is to come: the end result of this developing promiscuousness, the beneficiary of this cosmopolitan social action, can only be a Democracy which will be neither Catholic, nor Protestant, nor Jewish. It will be a religion (for Sillonism, so the leaders have said, is a religion) more universal than the Catholic Church, uniting all men become brothers and comrades at last in the "Kingdom of God". - "We do not work for the Church, we work for mankind."
And now, overwhelmed with the deepest sadness, We ask Ourselves, Venerable Brethren, what has become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organization which formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the Church, and is now no more than a miserable affluent of the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer.
The Real Agenda: Disparaging Catholicism and the Real Popes of the Past
Well beyond the Southern Poverty Law Center's listing of the twelve apostolates (mentioning in the same disparaging light, for example, the two men who debated each other at Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane Washington, on October 16, 2006, Dr. Robert Sungenis and Mr. John Lane; the SPLC also managed to lump together the Society of Saint Pius X and the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, two groups not known for their chumminess, shall we say, something that makes no never mind to those who hate the Faith without distinction!), the real agenda of the Jews of the Talmud and the high-priests of conciliarism is to disparage the immutable dogmas of the Catholic Faith that have been enunciated by dogmatic councils and by the real popes of the past. There is no room in the counterfeit church of conciliarism for anything that reminds the world that its false teachings are at odds with the authentic patrimony of the Catholic Church.
Curiously, Benedict XVI said the following on Wednesday, January 17, 2007, the same day that the Southern Poverty Law Center "special intelligence" report began to circulate on the internet:
VATICAN CITY, JAN. 17, 2007 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI appealed for the common prayer of Christians and Jews worldwide, to deepen their friendship and elicit their cooperation for justice and peace.
The Holy Father's appeal during today's general audience in Paul VI Hall coincides with Italy's Day of Judeo-Christian Reflection.
The Pontiff said the purpose of this initiative is "to promote knowledge and appreciation and enhance the relationship of mutual friendship between the Christian and Jewish communities."
The relationship between Christian and Jews "has developed positively in the wake of the Second Vatican Council and the historic visit of the Servant of God Pope John Paul II, to the major synagogue of Rome," the Pope said.
According to Benedict XVI: "To grow and be fruitful, the Judeo-Christian friendship must also be based on prayer.
"Therefore, I invite everyone to address today a persistent prayer to the Lord that Jews and Christians may respect and appreciate one another and collaborate together for justice and peace in the world."
"The relationship between Christians and Jews 'has developed positively in the wake of the Second Vatican Council and the historic visit of the Servant of God Pope John Paul II, to the major synagogue of Rome.'" What Benedict XVI considers as "positive" is actually a betrayal of the Catholic Faith, which is why he must be smiling broadly as his Talmudic friends do his own bidding for him by seeking to blunt any efforts on the part of so-called "radical traditionalists" to remind people that the teachings of the conciliar church are not authentically Catholic. Benedict does not want any reminders of such things as Pope Eugene IV's Papal Bull Cantate Domino, which was issued during the Council of Florence on February 4, 1441:
It [the Holy Catholic Church] firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that those not living within the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics cannot become participants in eternal life, but will depart "into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life the same have been added to the flock; and that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is so strong that only to those remaining in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fastings, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of Christian service produce eternal reward, and that no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church. (Cantate Domino, February 4, 1441.)
Benedict is an Hegelian, believing that truth contains within itself the seeds of its own internal contradiction. The clash between the original thesis and its antithesis results in the new thesis (synthesis), which is why he is talks almost incessantly about arriving at a "critical synthesis" or a "synthesis of faith," terms that are alien to the Catholic Faith. Past dogmatic pronouncements might have served some useful purpose at a given point in history, you see, but the demands of "modern man" must produce a new synthesis to "respond" to differing circumstances. Such a view suits the goals of Judeo-Masonry quite well. Any and all efforts to thwart the efforts of Catholics to seek to restore Christendom and to seek the conversion of others, including the Jews of the Talmud, to the true Faith, up to and including the infiltration of her ranks with all manner of unbelievers (Masons, adherents of the Talmud, Communists), must be employed to help "move along" the "synthesis of faith" that will result in the flushing of the Catholic past down the memory hole.
This is why all talk of the infiltration of the Catholic Church is treated with contempt in the Southern Poverty Law Center report. Infiltration by homosexuals? Collaboration with the sworn enemies of Our Lord (Jews, Masons, Communists)? Such talk is utter nonsense, obviously. The "Synagogue of Satan," of all things? Where did that come from? Well, how about The Syllabus of Errors, the document issued by Pope Pius IX that is so hated by Benedict himself, who made it a point to state that the Gaudium et Spes was a "counter-syllabus," if you will. Once again, there can be no referencing those truths that have been replaced by new "syntheses" as the "needs" of "modern man" are met.
Here is what Pope Pius IX wrote at the end of The Syllabus of Errors, 1864, including the condemnation of the belief, held by Benedict and the conciliarists, that the "Roman pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern civilization":
80. The Roman Pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern civilization.- -Allocution "Jamdudum cernimus," March 18, 1861.
The faith teaches us and human reason demonstrates that a double order of things exists, and that we must therefore distinguish between the two earthly powers, the one of natural origin which provides for secular affairs and the tranquillity of human society, the other of supernatural origin, which presides over the City of God, that is to say the Church of Christ, which has been divinely instituted for the sake of souls and of eternal salvation.... The duties of this twofold power are most wisely ordered in such a way that to God is given what is God's (Matt. 22:21), and because of God to Caesar what is Caesar's, who is great because he is smaller than heaven. Certainly the Church has never disobeyed this divine command, the Church which always and everywhere instructs the faithful to show the respect which they should inviolably have for the supreme authority and its secular rights....
. . . Venerable Brethren, you see clearly enough how sad and full of perils is the condition of Catholics in the regions of Europe which We have mentioned. Nor are things any better or circumstances calmer in America, where some regions are so hostile to Catholics that their governments seem to deny by their actions the Catholic faith they claim to profess. In fact, there, for the last few years, a ferocious war on the Church, its institutions and the rights of the Apostolic See has been raging.... Venerable Brothers, it is surprising that in our time such a great war is being waged against the Catholic Church. But anyone who knows the nature, desires and intentions of the sects, whether they be called masonic or bear another name, and compares them with the nature the systems and the vastness of the obstacles by which the Church has been assailed almost everywhere, cannot doubt that the present misfortune must mainly be imputed to the frauds and machinations of these sects. It is from them that the synagogue of Satan, which gathers its troops against the Church of Christ, takes its strength. In the past Our predecessors, vigilant even from the beginning in Israel, had already denounced them to the kings and the nations, and had condemned them time and time again, and even We have not failed in this duty. If those who would have been able to avert such a deadly scourge had only had more faith in the supreme Pastors of the Church! But this scourge, winding through sinuous caverns, . . . deceiving many with astute frauds, finally has arrived at the point where it comes forth impetuously from its hiding places and triumphs as a powerful master. Since the throng of its propagandists has grown enormously, these wicked groups think that they have already become masters of the world and that they have almost reached their pre-established goal. Having sometimes obtained what they desired, and that is power, in several countries, they boldly turn the help of powers and authorities which they have secured to trying to submit the Church of God to the most cruel servitude, to undermine the foundations on which it rests, to contaminate its splendid qualities; and, moreover, to strike it with frequent blows, to shake it, to overthrow it, and, if possible, to make it disappear completely from the earth. Things being thus, Venerable Brothers, make every effort to defend the faithful which are entrusted to you against the insidious contagion of these sects and to save from perdition those who unfortunately have inscribed themselves in such sects. Make known and attack those who, whether suffering from, or planning, deception, are not afraid to affirm that these shady congregations aim only at the profit of society, at progress and mutual benefit. Explain to them often and impress deeply on their souls the Papal constitutions on this subject and teach, them that the masonic associations are anathematized by them not only in Europe but also in America and wherever they may be in the whole world. (Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864.)
The Southern Poverty Law Center is really not the problem here, ladies and gentlemen. What do we expect people who are committed to the Talmud, a document that preaches actual hate for Christians (as will be demonstrated shortly), are going to do? Give us a reward for opposing their support of blasphemies committed against Our Lord and Our Lady in motion pictures and plays and books, to say nothing of our opposing their support for baby-killing, both chemical and surgical, under cover of law? No, the attorneys for the Southern Poverty Law Center are doing what comes all too naturally to those whose souls are steeped in Original Sin and are thus in the grip of the devil himself, who hates Our Lord and the true Church He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is simply doing the bidding of the ethos of conciliarism that the scions of the Talmud worked so hard to effect through the centuries. It is Benedict and his bishops who are chortling heartily right now as his fiercest critics are being tarred and feathered. It is Benedict and his bishops who want such "embarrassing" things as the Syllabus of Errors discredited and disparaged. It is Benedict and his bishops who want the Jews of the Talmud to do what would be unseemly for prelates: denounce believing Catholics for holding fast to the perennial truths of the Catholic Faith as they had been taught consistently prior to the dawn of the era of apostasies that began to be ushered in during the reign of John XXIII starting in 1958.
Once again, you see, the true sedevacantists are the conciliarists, who believe that very little of what happened prior to 1958 binds them, especially those things that point out who the enemies of the Catholic Faith have been from the beginning and how it is an act of love to oppose them while we seek their conversion to the maternal bosom of Holy Mother Church. Pope Pius IX charged the bishops of his day to "defend the faithful" against "the insidious contagion of these sects and to save from perdition those who unfortunately have inscribed themselves in such sects." Benedict believes that the faithful in the conciliar structures need to be "protected" against the "radical traditionalists" who take Pope Pius IX's words seriously! Conciliarism and the ethos of Judeo-Masonry are thus one and the same.
Father Fahey's Proper Distinctions Concerning Anti-Semitism
Father Denis Fahey is hated even in death by the Jews of the Talmud because he sought to restore the Social Reign of Christ the King that was overthrown as a result of the Protestant Revolt and the rise of Judeo-Masonry, which arrogates unto fallen man the delusion that he can govern himself, both individually and socially, without the authority of the priesthood that Our Lord instituted at the Last Supper (in the same Upper Room where the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity would descend in tongues of flame upon the Apostles fifty-three days later). The Jews of the Talmud do not want Christendom restored. Neither does Benedict XVI, who is content with a generic form of inter-denominationalism to oppose secularism rather than insisting on what he rejects, that is, the necessity of the civil state to recognize and to protect the Catholic Church as its official religion. Thus any and all efforts to restore Christendom must be stopped cold in its tracks by the use of sloganeering. "Anti-Semitism" is a slogan used by the sworn enemies of Our Lord to silence His followers now just as surely as the Jews of the Sanhedrin sought to silence the Apostles nearly two millennia ago.
Sloganeering is not new. It was given "rebirth" during the Renaissance and was perfected in its modern use during the various aspects of the Protestant and French Revolutions. It is part and parcel of popular discourse today, as the late Simone Weil noted in the 1920s (as quoted in the late Dr. Russell Kirk's The Roots of American Order):
It is as though we had returned to the age of Protagoras and the Sophists, the age when the art of persuasion--whose modern equivalent is advertising slogans, publicity, propaganda meetings, the press, the cinema, and radio--took the place of thought and controlled the fate of cities and accomplished coups d'etat. So the ninth book of Plato's Republic looks like a description of contemporary events."
Father Denis Fahey knew this only too well, and he had the courage to call a slogan for what it is: an effort to stop all rational debate.
Writing in The Struggle of the Jewish Nation against the Messias, Father Fahey wrote that Catholics must never be intimidated by the slogan of anti-Semitism. Consider once again these telling words:
Yet all the propaganda about that display of Anti-Semitism should not have made Catholics forget the existence of age-long Jewish Naturalism or Anti-Supernaturalism. Forgetfulness of the disorder of Jewish Naturalistic opposition to Christ the King is keeping Catholics blind to the danger that is arising from the clever extension of the term “Anti-Semitism,” with all its war-connotation in the minds of the unthinking, to include any form of opposition to the Jewish Nation’s naturalistic aims. For the leaders of the Jewish Nation, to stand for the rights of Christ the King is logically to be “anti-Semitic.”
These words of wisdom apply to the cultural and political legal warfare that has been waged in this country by Judeo-Masonry and to the warfare being waged in the Middle East at present. Indeed, as Father Fahey quotes from Pope Pius XI:
“Comprehending and merciful charity towards the erring,” he writes, “and even towards the contemptuous, does not mean and can not mean that you renounce in any way the proclaiming of, the insisting on, and the courageous defence of the truth and its free and unhindered application to the realities about you. The first and obvious duty the priest owes to the world about him is service to the truth, the whole truth, the unmasking and refutation of error in whatever form or disguise it conceals itself.” (Pope Pius XII, Mitt Brennender Sorge, March 14, 1937)
Aided and abetted by its Talmudic allies, conciliarism has sought to bury the insights of Father Fahey and those of his American counterpart, Father Charles Coughlin, by terming these courageous and prophetic priests as anti-Semites whose views have been repudiated by the "enlightenment" of Nostra Aetate and by the "progress" made in Jewish-Catholic relations since the end of the "Second" Vatican Council. Conciliarism's accommodation with the enemies of Our Lord, coupled with conciliarism's refusal to seek urgently the conversion of Talmudic Jews, whose souls are steeped in captivity to the devil by means of Original Sin, has permitted the enemies of Our Lord to promote their agenda of evil with complete abandon. We see this very clearly with the effort that is now underway by the Southern Poverty Law Center to "out" faithful Catholics for speaking and defending the perennial truths of the Catholic Faith without regard to human respect.
It is not be "anti-Semitic" to seek to convert someone steeped in the false religion of Talmud Judaism to the true Faith, Catholicism. Saint Vincent Ferrer, whose preaching converted 25,000 Talmudic Jews, most in Spain, to the true Faith, had a true love for the souls of those he sought to convert. He was merely doing what Saint Peter himself did on Pentecost Sunday. How can this be anti-Semitic. Consider these words about Saint Vincent Ferrer, contained in Dom Prosper Gueranger's The Liturgical Year:
To-day, again, it is Catholic Spain that offers one of her sons to the Church, that she may present him to the Christian world as a model and a patron. Vincent Ferrer, or, as he was called, the angel of the judgment, comes to us proclaiming the near approach of the Judge of the living and the dead. During his lifetime, he traversed almost every country of Europe, preaching this terrible truth ["Convert, or die!"--editor's note]; and the people of those times went from his sermons striking their breasts, crying out to God to have mercy upon them--in a word, converted. In these our days, the thought of that awful day, when Jesus Christ will appear in the clouds of heaven to judge mankind, has not the same effect upon Christians. They believe in the last judgment, because it is an article of faith; but, we repeat, the thought produces little impression. After long years of a sinful life, a special grace touches the heart, and we witness a conversion; there are thousands thus converted, but the majority of them continue to lead an easy, comfortable life, seldom thinking on hell, and still less the judgment wherewith God is to bring time to an end.
It was not thus in the Christian ages; neither is it so now with those whose conversion is solid. Love is stronger in them than fear; and yet the fear of God's judgment is every living within them, and gives stability to the new life they have begun. Those Christians, who have heavy debts towards divine justice, because of their past lives, and who, notwithstanding, make the time of Lent a season for evincing their cowardice and tepidity, surely such Christians as these must very rarely ask themselves what will become of them on that day, when the sign of the Son of Man shall appear in the heavens, and when Jesus, not as Saviour, but as Judge, shall separate the goats from the sheep. One would suppose that they would have received a revelation from God, that, on the day of judgment, all will be well with them. Let us be more prudent; let us stand on our guard against the illusions of a proud, self-satisfied indifference; let us secure to ourselves, by sincere repentance, the well-founded hope, that on the terrible day, which has made the very saints tremble, we shall hear these words of the divine Judge addressed to us: 'Come, ye blessed of My Father, possess the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world!' Vincent Ferrer leaves the peaceful cell of his monastery, that he may go and rouse men to the great truth they had forgotten--the day of God's inexorable justice; we have not heard his preachings, but, have we not the Gospel? Have we not the Church, who, at the commencement, of this season of penance, preached to us the terrible truth, which St. Vincent took as the subject of his instructions? Let us, therefore, prepare ourselves to appear before Him, who will demand of us a strict account of those graces which He so profusely poured out upon us, and which were purchased by His Blood. Happy they that spend their Lents well, for they may hope for a favourable judgment!
Dom Prosper Gueranger included a passage about Saint Vincent Ferrer that is contained in the Roman Breviary that is still read by priests who offer the Immemorial Mass of Tradition across the ecclesiastical fault lines:
He exposed the perfidy of the Jews, and refuted the false doctrines of the Saracens, but with so much earnestness and success, that he brought a great number of infidels to the faith of Christ, and converted many thousand Christians from sin to repentance, and from vice to virtue. God had chosen him to teach the way of salvation to all nations, and tribes, and tongues; as also to warn men of the coming of the last and dread day of judgment, He so preached, that he struck terror into the minds of all his hearers, and turned them from earthly affections to the love of God.
Anti-Semitism--or simple fidelity to this mission that the God-Man, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, gave to the Eleven before He Ascended to the Father's right hand in glory on Pentecost Sunday?
And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And seeing them they adored: but some doubted. And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. (Mt. 28: 16-20)
Was Father Alphonse Ratisbonne, who was converted to the Faith after Our Lady appeared to him in a church in Rome as she appeared on the Miraculous Medal, and his brother, Father Theodore Ratisbonne, "anti-Semitic" to have gone to the Holy Land to seek the conversion of their fellow Jews of the Talmud? They "targeted" Jews for conversion, something that Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the "preacher" to the "papal" household of both John Paul II and Benedict XVI said in 2005 must not be done:
If Jews one day come (as Paul hopes) to a more positive judgment of Jesus, this must occur through an inner process, as the end of a search of their own (something that in part is occurring). We Christians cannot be the ones who seek to convert them. We have lost the right to do so by the way in which this was done in the past. First the wounds must be healed through dialogue and reconciliation. (Zenit, September 30, 2005.)
"We have lost the right to do so by the way in which this was done in the past?" Excuse me, Father Cantalamessa, where in the history of the Catholic Church prior to 1958 can you find any evidence whatsoever that the mandate given by Our Lord to the Eleven on Ascension Thursday to seek to convert all men at all times until His Second Coming in glory is a mere "right" that can be "lost"? Whose efforts to convert the Jews are you condemning? Saint Peter? Saint Paul? Saint John the Evangelist, as the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin specifically named ten years ago as the "source of anti-Semitism" in an address delivered at Hebrew University? Saint Matthew? Fathers Theodore and Alphonse Ratisbonne? Saint Vincent Ferrer? Who?
Was Pope Saint Pius X guilty of "hate" when he said the
following to the founder of international Zionism, Theodore Herzl, on
January 25, 1904?
POPE: We are unable to favor this movement [of
Zionism]. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem—but we
could never sanction it. The ground of Jerusalem, if it were not always
sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of
the Church I cannot answer you otherwise. The Jews have not recognized
our Lord, therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people.
HERZL: [The conflict
between Rome and Jerusalem, represented by the one and the other of us,
was once again under way. At the outset I tried to be conciliatory. I
said my little piece. . . . It didn’t greatly impress him. Jerusalem was
not to be placed in Jewish hands.] And its present status, Holy Father?
POPE: I know, it is disagreeable to see the Turks in
possession of our Holy Places. We simply have to put up with it. But to
sanction the Jewish wish to occupy these sites, that we cannot do.
HERZL: [I said that we based our movement solely on the
sufferings of the Jews, and wished to put aside all religious issues].
POPE: Yes, but we, but I as the head of the Catholic Church,
cannot do this. One of two things will likely happen. Either the Jews
will retain their ancient faith and continue to await the Messiah whom
we believe has already appeared—in which case they are denying the
divinity of Jesus and we cannot assist them. Or else they will go there
with no religion whatever, and then we can have nothing at all to do
with them. The Jewish faith was the foundation of our own, but it has
been superceded by the teachings of Christ, and we cannot admit that it
still enjoys any validity. The Jews who should have been the first to
acknowledge Jesus Christ have not done so to this day.
HERZL: [It was on the tip of my tongue to remark, “It happens
in every family: no one believes in his own relative.” But, instead, I
said:] Terror and persecution were not precisely the best means for
converting the Jews. [His reply had an element of grandeur in its
POPE: Our Lord came without power. He came in peace. He
persecuted no one. He was abandoned even by his apostles. It was only
later that he attained stature. It took three centuries for the Church
to evolve. The Jews therefore had plenty of time in which to accept his
divinity without duress or pressure. But they chose not to do so, and
they have not done it yet.
HERZL: But, Holy
Father, the Jews are in a terrible plight. I do not know if Your
Holiness is aware of the full extent of their tragedy. We need a land
for these harried people.
POPE: Must it be Jerusalem?
HERZL: We are not asking for Jerusalem, but for Palestine—for only the secular land.
POPE: We cannot be in favor of it.
[Editor Lowenthal interjects here] Here unrelenting
replacement theology is plainly upheld as the norm of the Roman Catholic
Church. Further, this confession, along with the whole tone of the Pope
in his meeting with Herzl, indicates the perpetuation of a doctrinal
emphasis that has resulted in centuries of degrading behavior toward the
Jews. However, this response has the “grandeur” of total avoidance of
that which Herzl had intimated, namely that the abusive reputation of
Roman Catholicism toward the Jews was unlikely to foster conversion.
Further, if, “It took three centuries for the Church to evolve,” it was
that very same period of time that it took for the Church to consolidate
and launch its thrust of anti-Semitism through the following centuries.
HERZL: Does Your Holiness know the situation of the Jews?
POPE: Yes, from my days in Mantua, where there are Jews. I
have always been in friendly relations with Jews. Only the other evening
two Jews were here to see me. There are other bonds than those of
religion: social intercourse, for example, and philanthropy. Such bonds
we do not refuse to maintain with the Jews. Indeed we also pray for
them, that their spirit see the light. This very day the Church is
celebrating the feast of an unbeliever who became converted in a
miraculous manner—on the road to Damascus. And so if you come to
Palestine and settle your people there, we will be ready with churches
and priests to baptize all of you. (Marvin Lowenthal, The Diaries of Theodore Herzl.)
Was Pope Pius XII guilty of "hate" when he wrote the following in Mystici Corporis Christi, June 29, 1943?
28.That He completed His work on the gibbet of
the Cross is the unanimous teaching of the holy Fathers who assert that
the Church was born from the side of our Savior on the Cross like a new
Eve, mother of all the living. 
"And it is now," says the great St. Ambrose, speaking of the pierced
side of Christ, "that it is built, it is now that it is formed, it is
now that is .... molded, it is now that it is created . . . Now it is
that arises a spiritual house, a holy priesthood."  One who reverently examines this venerable teaching will easily discover the reasons on which it is based.
29.And first of all, by the death of
our Redeemer, the New Testament took the place of the Old Law which had
been abolished; then the Law of Christ together with its mysteries,
enactments, institutions, and sacred rites was ratified for the whole
world in the blood of Jesus Christ. For, while our Divine
Savior was preaching in a restricted area -- He was not sent but to the
sheep that were lost of the house of Israel  -the Law and the Gospel were together in force;  but on the gibbet of his death Jesus made void the Law with its decrees,  fastened the handwriting of the Old Testament to the Cross,  establishing the New Testament in His blood shed for the whole human race. 
"To such an extent, then," says St. Leo the Great, speaking of the
Cross of our Lord, "was there effected a transfer from the Law to the
Gospel, from the Synagogue to the Church, from many sacrifices to one
Victim, that, as our Lord expired, that mystical veil which shut off the
innermost part of the temple and its sacred secret was rent violently
from top to bottom." 
30. On the Cross then the Old Law died, soon to be buried and to be a bearer of death,  in order to give way to the New Testament of which Christ had chosen the Apostles as qualified ministers; 
and although He had been constituted the Head of the whole human family
in the womb of the Blessed Virgin, it is by the power of the Cross that
our Savior exercises fully the office itself of Head in His Church.
"For it was through His triumph on the Cross," according to the teaching
of the Angelic and Common Doctor, "that He won power and dominion over
the gentiles"; 
by that same victory He increased the immense treasure of graces,
which, as He reigns in glory in heaven, He lavishes continually on His
mortal members it was by His blood shed on the Cross that God's anger
was averted and that all the heavenly gifts, especially the spiritual
graces of the New and Eternal Testament, could then flow from the
fountains of our Savior for the salvation of men, of the faithful above
all; it was on the tree of the Cross, finally, that He entered into
possession of His Church, that is, of all the members of His Mystical
Body; for they would not have been united to this Mystical Body.
the Holy Ghost permit the Catholic Church to be "wrong" on the matter of
the invalidity of the Old Covenant prior to the "Second" Vatican
Council? Can God change His Mind? Can God contradict Himself after the
better part of over two millennia? Anyone who asserts this is an
apostate of the first order.
It is my hope that those who have yet to understand that conciliarism is a false religion may begin to question how an absolute command given by Our Lord--one that has been fulfilled at the point of martyrdom by countless Catholics in the last two millennia---can be "lost" and that is is wrong to seek the conversion of anyone, including the Jews of the Talmud. We must not be intimidated by sloganeering. We must seek the conversion of all, starting with ourselves on a daily basis, and we must oppose those who seek to silence us about the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother and who seek to promote under cover of law the very evils that loaded down the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus with such pain and that thrust through seven swords of sorrow through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Immaculate Queen.
As we know, of course, it is not simply the example of the saints that the Jews of the Talmud reject and disparage. It is the very Person of Our Lord Himself, true God and true Man, Who is hated, something that cross across very clearly in a source of real hate, the Talmud itself.
The Talmud: A Source of Real Hate
Father I. B. Pranaitis, a priest in Saint Petersburg, Russia, wrote a book in 1892, The Talmud Unmasked: The Secret Rabbinical Teachings Concerning Christians. Father Pranaitis was a
professor "Hebrew language at the Imperial Ecclesiastical
Academy of the Roman Catholic Church
in Old St. Petersburg," Russia. The book carried an imprimatur issued by
Bishop Szymon Marcin Kozlowski †, Archbishop of Mohilev, Belarus (this link will take you to Catholic-Hierarchy: Its Bishops and Dioceses, Current and Past). The full text of Father Pranaitis' book, which cost him his life, as he himself prophesied that it would, can be found on, of all things, a Protestant website (talmud1 and Talmud Unmasked Part Two).
Excerpts are provide below in two appendices to illustrate that the very people who want the world to believe that it is a "hate crime" to seek the conversion of Talmudic Jews and to oppose their efforts to eradicate the Holy Name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Chris and the authority of His true Church from the minds and heats of men and their nations are actually the real purveyors of a hatred that is from Hell itself:
Hatred of Our Lord, obviously, leads to hatred of His followers. This is why the Jews of the Talmud, who are not, for the most part, the blood Jews of the stock of Abraham (see Father Louis Campbell's
"And I Saw No Temple Therein"), must war against those who adhere to the perennial truths of the Faith and why they must serve as fervent apologists and propagandists for the false religion of conciliarism. Part Two of Father Pranaitis's book discusses this hatred for the followers of the Divine Redeemer. An excerpt is provided in the appendix below.
Adherents of the Talmud thus consider it their duty to persecute believing Catholics. Although they condemn those who adhere to theories of racial superiority, which, as will be seen presently, have been condemned repeatedly by the Catholic Church, the adherents of the Talmud believe their own own superiority, which explains their harsh, cruel treatment of the Palestinians and the Lebanese since the Zionist-Masonic state of Israel was established in 1948. In this instance, you see, is is the conciliarists who are acting as reverse Pontius Pilates, turning over faithful Catholics to the Jew of the Talmud to be excoriated as practitioners of hate when it is, in all truth, the Talmud that preaches actual, real hatred for Our Lord, Our Lady and all members of the Catholic Church.
What is our response to such hatred? Forgiveness and prayer. Our Lord Himself told us that we must pray for our persecutors and to do good to them, the ultimate expression of which is to seek their conversion to the true Church. This is what He said in the Sermon on the Mount:
You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.
For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect. (Mt. 5: 43-48)
Yes, we must pray for our persecutors. We bear them no malice as we seek to expose their hatred and to win their souls for Christ the King through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our loving Queen.
Saint Alphonsus Liguori wrote this about the early martyrs of the Church, many of whom were turned over to Roman authorities by Jews of the Sanhedrin and by the Jews of the Dispersal:
But to return to the martyrs. The number of Christians who had received the crown of martyrdom, previous to the accession of Constantine, was almost incredible. Many authors calculate the number of those who had laid down their lives for the faith to have been nearly eleven million! So that if this number were equally distributed in the course of one year, thirty thousand would be allotted to each day.
Oh, the beautiful harvest of holy martyrs that paradise has reaped since the preaching of the Gospel! But, O God! what will be, on the day of general judgment, the confusion of the tyrants and of all the persecutors of the faith, at the sight of the martyrs once so despised and so maltreated by them, when these celestial heroes shall appear in glory, extolling the greatness of God, and armed with the sword of divine justice to avenge themselves for all the injuries and cruelties exercised against them, as was foretold by David: The high praises of God in their mouths, and two-edged swords in their hands to execute vengeance upon the nations; to bind their kings in fetters, and their nobles in manacles of iron. Then shall the martyrs judge the Neros, the Domitians, and other persecutors, and shall condemn them; yea, as we read in the Gospel of St. Matthew, even to the exterior darkness, where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
But it will be for us a subject of more profitable meditation to reflect upon another scene which the great day of general and irrevocable doom will present--the despair of so many Christians who, having died in mortal sin, will behold with unavailing anguish the triumph of so many martyrs, who, rather than lose God, suffered themselves to be despoiled of all things, and underwent the most horrid torments that hell could suggest or tyrants inflict. while they, rather than yield a point of honor or forego a momentary gratification, despised the suggestions of divine grace, and lost their souls forever! (Saint Alphonsus de Liguori, The Glories of the Martyrs.)
We must pray for the grace of perseverance for ourselves as we pray for the conversion of the Jews of the Talmud who calumniate us for refusing to worship at the false altar of conciliarism by our adherence to the perennial truths that the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate womb entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
Avoiding Bad Associations
All of this having been noted, it is important to add, however, that it is sometimes that case that Catholics are not very circumspect about the company they keep. This can lead to giving the enemies of the Faith unnecessary ammunition to attack us by universalizing from the particular experiences of a handful of Catholics, thus tarring all Catholics with the same unsavory brush.
To wit, I am referring to the promiscuous attendance of Catholics at events sponsored by secular organizations that do not by their very nature refer all things to Our Lord through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and who are thus open to participation by those who believe in various racialist ideologies (white supremacists, neo-Nazi organizations). There is no secular solution to any problem in the world. Catholicism is the only answer to ameliorating all of the world's problems, which have their remote cause in Original Sin and their proximate cause in our own Actual Sins. Pope Pius XI was very clear about this in Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922:
If we stop to reflect for a moment that these ideals and doctrines of Jesus Christ, for example, his teachings on the necessity and value of the spiritual life, on the dignity and sanctity of human life, on the duty of obedience, on the divine basis of human government, on the sacramental character of matrimony and by consequence the sanctity of family life -- if we stop to reflect, let Us repeat, that these ideals and doctrines of Christ (which are in fact but a portion of the treasury of truth which He left to mankind) were confided by Him to His Church and to her alone for safekeeping, and that He has promised that His aid will never fail her at any time for she is the infallible teacher of His doctrines in every century and before all nations, there is no one who cannot clearly see what a singularly important role the Catholic Church is able to play, and is even called upon to assume, in providing a remedy for the ills which afflict the world today and in leading mankind toward a universal peace.
Because the Church is by divine institution the sole depository and interpreter of the ideals and teachings of Christ, she alone possesses in any complete and true sense the power effectively to combat that materialistic philosophy which has already done and, still threatens, such tremendous harm to the home and to the state. The Church alone can introduce into society and maintain therein the prestige of a true, sound spiritualism, the spiritualism of Christianity which both from the point of view of truth and of its practical value is quite superior to any exclusively philosophical theory. The Church is the teacher and an example of world good-will, for she is able to inculcate and develop in mankind the "true spirit of brotherly love" (St. Augustine, De Moribus Ecclesiae Catholicae, i, 30) and by raising the public estimation of the value and dignity of the individual's soul help thereby to lift us even unto God.
Finally, the Church is able to set both public and private life on the road to righteousness by demanding that everything and all men become obedient to God "Who beholdeth the heart," to His commands, to His laws, to His sanctions. If the teachings of the Church could only penetrate in some such manner as We have described the inner recesses of the consciences of mankind, be they rulers or be they subjects, all eventually would be so apprised of their personal and civic duties and their mutual responsibilities that in a short time "Christ would be all, and in all." (Colossians iii, 11)
Since the Church is the safe and sure guide to conscience, for to her safe-keeping alone there has been confided the doctrines and the promise of the assistance of Christ, she is able not only to bring about at the present hour a peace that is truly the peace of Christ, but can, better than any other agency which We know of, contribute greatly to the securing of the same peace for the future, to the making impossible of war in the future. For the Church teaches (she alone has been given by God the mandate and the right to teach with authority) that not only our acts as individuals but also as groups and as nations must conform to the eternal law of God. In fact, it is much more important that the acts of a nation follow God's law, since on the nation rests a much greater responsibility for the consequences of its acts than on the individual.
When, therefore, governments and nations follow in all their activities, whether they be national or international, the dictates of conscience grounded in the teachings, precepts, and example of Jesus Christ, and which are binding on each and every individual, then only can we have faith in one another's word and trust in the peaceful solution of the difficulties and controversies which may grow out of differences in point of view or from clash of interests. An attempt in this direction has already and is now being made; its results, however, are almost negligible and, especially so, as far as they can be said to affect those major questions which divide seriously and serve to arouse nations one against the other. No merely human institution of today can be as successful in devising a set of international laws which will be in harmony with world conditions as the Middle Ages were in the possession of that true League of Nations, Christianity. It cannot be denied that in the Middle Ages this law was often violated; still it always existed as an ideal, according to which one might judge the acts of nations, and a beacon light calling those who had lost their way back to the safe road.
There exists an institution able to safeguard the sanctity of the law of nations. This institution is a part of every nation; at the same time it is above all nations. She enjoys, too, the highest authority, the fullness of the teaching power of the Apostles. Such an institution is the Church of Christ. She alone is adapted to do this great work, for she is not only divinely commissioned to lead mankind, but moreover, because of her very make-up and the constitution which she possesses, by reason of her age-old traditions and her great prestige, which has not been lessened but has been greatly increased since the close of the War, cannot but succeed in such a venture where others assuredly will fail.
It is apparent from these considerations that true peace, the peace of Christ, is impossible unless we are willing and ready to accept the fundamental principles of Christianity, unless we are willing to observe the teachings and obey the law of Christ, both in public and private life. If this were done, then society being placed at last on a sound foundation, the Church would be able, in the exercise of its divinely given ministry and by means of the teaching authority which results therefrom, to protect all the rights of God over men and nations.
It is possible to sum up all We have said in one word, "the Kingdom of Christ." For Jesus Christ reigns over the minds of individuals by His teachings, in their hearts by His love, in each one's life by the living according to His law and the imitating of His example. Jesus reigns over the family when it, modeled after the holy ideals of the sacrament of matrimony instituted by Christ, maintains unspotted its true character of sanctuary. In such a sanctuary of love, parental authority is fashioned after the authority of God, the Father, from Whom, as a matter of fact, it originates and after which even it is named. (Ephesians iii, 15) The obedience of the children imitates that of the Divine Child of Nazareth, and the whole family life is inspired by the sacred ideals of the Holy Family. Finally, Jesus Christ reigns over society when men recognize and reverence the sovereignty of Christ, when they accept the divine origin and control over all social forces, a recognition which is the basis of the right to command for those in authority and of the duty to obey for those who are subjects, a duty which cannot but ennoble all who live up to its demands. Christ reigns where the position in society which He Himself has assigned to His Church is recognized, for He bestowed on the Church the status and the constitution of a society which, by reason of the perfect ends which it is called upon to attain, must be held to be supreme in its own sphere; He also made her the depository and interpreter of His divine teachings, and, by consequence, the teacher and guide of every other society whatsoever, not of course in the sense that she should abstract in the least from their authority, each in its own sphere supreme, but that she should really perfect their authority, just as divine grace perfects human nature, and should give to them the assistance necessary for men to attain their true final end, eternal happiness, and by that very fact make them the more deserving and certain promoters of their happiness here below.
It is, therefore, a fact which cannot be questioned that the true peace of Christ can only exist in the Kingdom of Christ -- "the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ." It is no less unquestionable that, in doing all we can to bring about the re-establishment of Christ's kingdom, we will be working most effectively toward a lasting world peace. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)
We must avoid even the appearance of scandal as regards affiliating ourselves, even momentarily or inadvertently, with organizations that are open to "discuss" racialist theories of supremacy. As noted above, the Talmud preaches the superiority of its adherents. No one can oppose the Talmud by claiming a racialist supremacy of his own, worse yet to believe it to be permissible to hate others by willing some kind of harm to them. Our Lord eradicated all distinctions of race and ethnic origin. Saint Paul wrote about this most directly in his Epistle to the Galatians:
For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized in Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ's, then are you the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise. (Gal. 3: 26-29)
Our Lady herself emphasized this point by appearing to a poor Indian man, Venerable Juan Diego, on Tepeyac Hill on December 9, 1531. Juan Diego was treated very roughly by those guarding the entrance to Bishop Juan de Zumarraga's palace in Mexico City when he tried to tell His Excellency of Our Lady's apparition. What could a poor, widowed Indian man have to tell a bishop (yes, technically, just the administrator of the region at that time)? Our Lady wanted to effect the conversion of all of the peoples of Americas, including those who were steeped in the barbarism of the false religions of the Aztecs and Mayans and Incas, among others.
Saint Rose of Lima, for example, was horrified at the treatment of the indigenous Peruvian Indians at the hands of some of the Spanish conquistadors. She sought to minister to their spiritual and temporal needs. So did Blessed John Massias. And Blessed Martin de Porres was sought after by many of the so-called "superior" class of Lima, Peru, when they needed him to heal them of various physical infirmities. No, anyone who thinks that any country, including the United States of America, whose land was evangelized by Spanish and French missionaries long before the Catholic-hating Dutch and English Protestants arrived on these shores, belongs to just one category of people and/or that a certain group of people have the right to suppress and/or do violence to others is not thinking with the mind of the Divine Redeemer and is not loving with the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The entire world and all of the countries in it belong to Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen no matter the complexion of a person's skin or the language he speaks or the ethnic origins of his parents and ancestors. Catholicism is meant to unite all peoples regardless of race and ethnicity. Although, as Father Denis Fahey noted in The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, the ideal was never perfectly realized in the Middle Ages, Catholics at least realized that they had to strive to treat all people as they would treat Our Lord Himself.
Writing in Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937, to condemn Nazism just two years before his death, Pope Pius XI condemned all racialist and nationalist myths of superiority:
Take care, Venerable Brethren, that above all, faith in God, the first and irreplaceable foundation of all religion, be preserved in Germany pure and unstained. The believer in God is not he who utters the name in his speech, but he for whom this sacred word stands for a true and worthy concept of the Divinity. Whoever identifies, by pantheistic confusion, God and the universe, by either lowering God to the dimensions of the world, or raising the world to the dimensions of God, is not a believer in God. Whoever follows that so-called pre-Christian Germanic conception of substituting a dark and impersonal destiny for the personal God, denies thereby the Wisdom and Providence of God who "Reacheth from end to end mightily, and ordereth all things sweetly" (Wisdom viii. 1). Neither is he a believer in God.
Whoever exalts race, or the people, or the State, or a particular form of State, or the depositories of power, or any other fundamental value of the human community -- however necessary and honorable be their function in worldly things -- whoever raises these notions above their standard value and divinizes them to an idolatrous level, distorts and perverts an order of the world planned and created by God; he is far from the true faith in God and from the concept of life which that faith upholds.
Beware, Venerable Brethren, of that growing abuse, in speech as in writing, of the name of God as though it were a meaningless label, to be affixed to any creation, more or less arbitrary, of human speculation. Use your influence on the Faithful, that they refuse to yield to this aberration. Our God is the Personal God, supernatural, omnipotent, infinitely perfect, one in the Trinity of Persons, tri-personal in the unity of divine essence, the Creator of all existence. Lord, King and ultimate Consummator of the history of the world, who will not, and cannot, tolerate a rival God by His side.
This God, this Sovereign Master, has issued commandments whose value is independent of time and space, country and race. As God's sun shines on every human face so His law knows neither privilege nor exception. Rulers and subjects, crowned and uncrowned, rich and poor are equally subject to His word. From the fullness of the Creators' right there naturally arises the fullness of His right to be obeyed by individuals and communities, whoever they are. This obedience permeates all branches of activity in which moral values claim harmony with the law of God, and pervades all integration of the ever-changing laws of man into the immutable laws of God.
None but superficial minds could stumble into concepts of a national God, of a national religion; or attempt to lock within the frontiers of a single people, within the narrow limits of a single race, God, the Creator of the universe, King and Legislator of all nations before whose immensity they are "as a drop of a bucket" (Isaiah xI, 15).
The Bishops of the Church of Christ, "ordained in the things that appertain to God (Heb. v, 1) must watch that pernicious errors of this sort, and consequent practices more pernicious still, shall not gain a footing among their flock. It is part of their sacred obligations to do whatever is in their power to enforce respect for, and obedience to, the commandments of God, as these are the necessary foundation of all private life and public morality; to see that the rights of His Divine Majesty, His name and His word be not profaned; to put a stop to the blasphemies, which, in words and pictures, are multiplying like the sands of the desert; to encounter the obstinacy and provocations of those who deny, despise and hate God, by the never-failing reparatory prayers of the Faithful, hourly rising like incense to the All-Highest and staying His vengeance. (Pope Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937.)
Pope Pius XI elaborated on this in Mit Brennender Sorge:
The peak of the revelation as reached in the Gospel of Christ is final and permanent. It knows no retouches by human hand; it admits no substitutes or arbitrary alternatives such as certain leaders pretend to draw from the so-called myth of race and blood. Since Christ, the Lord's Anointed, finished the task of Redemption, and by breaking up the reign of sin deserved for us the grace of being the children God, since that day no other name under heaven has been given to men, whereby we must be saved (Acts iv. 12). No man, were every science, power and worldly strength incarnated in him, can lay any other foundation but that which is laid: which is Christ Jesus (1 Cor. iii 11). Should any man dare, in sacrilegious disregard of the essential differences between God and His creature, between the God-man and the children of man, to place a mortal, were he the greatest of all times, by the side of, or over, or against, Christ, he would deserve to be called prophet of nothingness, to whom the terrifying words of Scripture would be applicable: "He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them" (Psalms ii. 3).
Faith in Christ cannot maintain itself pure and unalloyed without the support of faith in the Church, "the pillar and ground of the truth" (1 Tim. iii. 15); for Christ Himself, God eternally blessed, raised this pillar of the Faith. His command to hear the Church (Matt. xviii. 15), to welcome in the words and commands of the Church His own words and His own commands (Luke x. 16), is addressed to all men, of all times and of all countries. The Church founded by the Redeemer is one, the same for all races and all nations. Beneath her dome, as beneath the vault of heaven, there is but one country for all nations and tongues; there is room for the development of every quality, advantage, task and vocation which God the Creator and Savior has allotted to individuals as well as to ethnical communities. The Church's maternal heart is big enough to see in the God-appointed development of individual characteristics and gifts, more than a mere danger of divergency. She rejoices at the spiritual superiorities among individuals and nations. In their successes she sees with maternal joy and pride fruits of education and progress, which she can only bless and encourage, whenever she can conscientiously do so. But she also knows that to this freedom limits have been set by the majesty of the divine command, which founded that Church one and indivisible. Whoever tampers with that unity and that indivisibility wrenches from the Spouse of Christ one of the diadems with which God Himself crowned her; he subjects a divine structure, which stands on eternal foundations, to criticism and transformation by architects whom the Father of Heaven never authorized to interfere.
The Church, whose work lies among men and operates through men, may see her divine mission obscured by human, too human, combination, persistently growing and developing like the cockle among the wheat of the Kingdom of God. Those who know the Savior's words on scandal and the giver of scandals, know, too, the judgment which the Church and all her sons must pronounce on what was and what is sin. But if, besides these reprehensible discrepancies be between faith and life, acts and words, exterior conduct and interior feelings, however numerous they be, anyone overlooks the overwhelming sum of authentic virtues, of spirit of sacrifice, fraternal love, heroic efforts of sanctity, he gives evidence of deplorable blindness and injustice. If later he forgets to apply the standard of severity, by which he measures the Church he hates, to other organizations in which he happens to be interested, then his appeal to an offended sense of purity identifies him with those who, for seeing the mote in their brother's eye, according to the Savior's incisive words, cannot see the beam in their own. But however suspicious the intention of those who make it their task, nay their vile profession, to scrutinize what is human in the Church, and although the priestly powers conferred by God are independent of the priest's human value, it yet remains true that at no moment of history, no individual, in no organization can dispense himself from the duty of loyally examining his conscience, of mercilessly purifying himself, and energetically renewing himself in spirit and in action. In Our Encyclical on the priesthood We have urged attention to the sacred duty of all those who belong to the Church, chiefly the members of the priestly and religious profession and of the lay apostolate, to square their faith and their conduct with the claims of the law of God and of the Church. And today we again repeat with all the insistency We can command: it is not enough to be a member of the Church of Christ, one needs to be a living member, in spirit and in truth, i.e., living in the state of grace and in the presence of God, either in innocence or in sincere repentance. If the Apostle of the nations, the vase of election, chastised his body and brought it into subjection: lest perhaps, when he had preached to others, he himself should become a castaway (1 Cor. ix. 27), could anybody responsible for the extension of the Kingdom of God claim any other method but personal sanctification? Only thus can we show to the present generation, and to the critics of the Church that "the salt of the earth," the leaven of Christianity has not decayed, but is ready to give the men of today -- prisoners of doubt and error, victims of indifference, tired of their Faith and straying from God -- the spiritual renewal they so much need. A Christianity which keeps a grip on itself, refuses every compromise with the world, takes the commands of God and the Church seriously, preserves its love of God and of men in all its freshness, such a Christianity can be, and will be, a model and a guide to a world which is sick to death and clamors for directions, unless it be condemned to a catastrophe that would baffle the imagination.
Every true and lasting reform has ultimately sprung from the sanctity of men who were driven by the love of God and of men. Generous, ready to stand to attention to any call from God, yet confident in themselves because confident in their vocation, they grew to the size of beacons and reformers. On the other hand, any reformatory zeal, which instead of springing from personal purity, flashes out of passion, has produced unrest instead of light, destruction instead of construction, and more than once set up evils worse than those it was out to remedy. No doubt "the Spirit breatheth where he will" (John iii. 8): "of stones He is able to raise men to prepare the way to his designs" (Matt. iii. 9). He chooses the instruments of His will according to His own plans, not those of men. But the Founder of the Church, who breathed her into existence at Pentecost, cannot disown the foundations as He laid them. Whoever is moved by the spirit of God, spontaneously adopts both outwardly and inwardly, the true attitude toward the Church, this sacred fruit from the tree of the cross, this gift from the Spirit of God, bestowed on Pentecost day to an erratic world. Pope Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937.)
Catholics must be careful, therefore, not to associate with those who believe in theories of racialist or national supremacy that are from the devil and lead souls to Hell. Remember this and remember it well: the devil will use his minions to stir up one set of enemies of Our Lord and His true Church to conduct an apparent battle against another set of enemies of Our Lord and His true Church. The only path to peace runs through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, serving her as her consecrated slaves by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit, not through alliances of expediency with those who believe in evil ideas.
We must be on our knees before the Blessed Sacrament in fervent prayer, making reparation for our own sins and those of the whole world, offering up sacrifices and penances to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the conversion, not the liquidation, of those who are, unfortunately, the sworn enemies of Our Lord. After all, aren't we the sworn enemies of Our Lord each time, God forbid, we have ever committed a mortal sin? We must pray, not hate. We must will the good of all others, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of their immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church. This is the true Charity we must have for all others. Our Lord really meant when He said on the wood of the Holy Cross:
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do (Lk. 23: 34)
We can and must defend the truths of the Faith without malice. Indeed, we must do so in a spirit of true Charity as we prove by our defense of the Faith a fervent love for all men, especially those who persecute us for standing fast in behalf of the immutable truths of the Holy Faith.
A Personal Note
Not much time has been spent in this commentary discussing the specifics of the allegations made against the twelve apostolates listed as "hate" organizations by the Southern Poverty Law Center. There is no need to do so at any great length. The charges against these organizations are baseless and grounded only in the hatred of the Faith of our fathers. This is not about the twelve apostolates, some of whom are run by people I have known for years and still have the greatest respect and admiration for despite the differences that exist between us at this time. I will always, for example, regard Michael Matt and John Vennari as my friends and I cherish the years in which we were able to collaborate together. These good men have only the interests of the Catholic Faith at heart. No matter the fact that I do indeed believe the apostasy of the present moment has been understood more fully by a prelate, His Excellency Bishop Mark A. Pivarunas, who was calumniated with them by the Southern Poverty Law Center's "special intelligence" report, anyone, including Messrs. Matt and Vennari, who incurs the wrath of the enemies of Our Lord are not the friends of the adversary, which is something that I hope Catholics across the ecclesiastical divide keep in mind. We need to stand together on this one, ladies and gentlemen.
Similarly, while I have come to see that the theological position of the Society of Saint Pius X insofar as "recognizing and resisting" a sitting pontiff is untenable, I have great respect for the priestly zeal of the priests in the Society who serve souls so selflessly. It can be argued fairly convincingly that the Society of Saint Pius X is the principal target of the "special intelligence" report, which should help to convince His Excellency Bishop Bernard Fellay that the officials of Rome in Modernist captivity are in close communion not with Catholicism but with the ethos of Judeo-Masonry. The Society of Saint Pius X has long defended the Social Reign of Christ the King, and it is for this defense of the immutable doctrine of Our Lord's Kingship over men and their nations that it is so hated by the Jews of the Talmud.
Indeed, I know many of the others (Christopher Ferrara, Marian Horvat, Michael Chabot of the Saint Joseph/Midwest Catholic Forum) named in the "special intelligence" report, some for well over a decade or more. Others, such as Bishop Pivarunas, whom my family treasures as a wonderful shepherd of souls, we have met more recently. Indeed, there is the same spirited defense of the Social Reign of Christ the King by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen as exists in the Society of Saint Pius X. Catholics worldwide should consider themselves indebted to prelates such as Bishop Pivarunas (and to Bishops Daniel Dolan and Donald Sanborn and Robert McKenna, among others) for defending the perennial truths of the Catholic Faith without compromise.
Not to be overlooked again (as happened in the initial posting of this article) is the work of John Sharpe and IHS Press, which is hated by the Jews of the Talmud for its promotion of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the exposing the horrors of Calvinist capitalism, which unites the scions of the Talmud with Protestants who believe that material success is a sign of “divine election.” Mr. Sharpe is hated–and calumniated–for his work in promoting the authentic Social Teaching of the Catholic Church. Those who make known the authentic patrimony of the Church must be hated while those who promote the false religion of conciliarism are praised by Talmudic Jews.
Once again, no matter the differences that may exist among the various others named in the "special intelligence" report, this episode must teach us that the devil hates us because we are Catholics who understand that Holy Mother Church has been given a mission by her Divine Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to seek with urgency the conversion of all men and all nations to the Catholic Faith. Although the differences that exist at this present time cannot be papered over, to be sure, we should nevertheless be sobered by the fact that the day is coming when governmental agents might come to our doors and accuse of "hate" crimes because we refuse to surrender to the false ethos of conciliarism (including ecumenism and religious liberty). We might find ourselves in jail cells with the very Catholics with whom we are having disagreements right now (Saints Pontian and Hippolytus, call your office). Once again, I say what I have been saying for the past nine months: let us bear with each other charitably as we continue to disagree on some very important points. Let us pray for each other as we work as the consecrated slaves of Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart to defend the Faith by opposing the Judeo-Masonic ethos abroad in the world and at work in the conciliar structures.
The example of the martyrs of the early Church should inspire in these times of calumny and persecution. Saint Alphonsus de Liguori composed this beautiful prayer in honor of those martyrs:
O ye blessed Princes of the heavenly kingdom! ye who sacrificed to the Almighty God the honors, the riches, and possessions of this life, and have received in return the unfading glory and never-ending joys of heaven! ye who are secure in the everlasting possession of he brilliant crown of glory which your sufferings have obtained!--look with compassionate regards upon our wretched state in this valley of tears, where we groan in the uncertainty of what may be our eternal destiny. And from that divine Saviour, for whom you suffered so many torments, and who now repays you with so unspeakable glory, obtain for us that we may love him with all our heart, and receive in return the grace of perfect resignation under the trials of this life, fortitude under the temptations of the enemy, and perseverance to the end. May your powerful intercession obtain for us that we may one day in your blessed company sing the praises of the Eternal, and even as you now do, face to face, enjoy the beatitude of his vision!
We must remember that there is nothing we can suffer in this life (injustice, calumny, death by martyrdom) that is the equal of what one of our least venial sins caused Our Lord to suffer on the wood of the Holy Cross during His Passion and Death. We should rejoice when we are persecuted and misunderstood. These words of Blessed Louis Grignion de Montfort should comfort and inspire us:
Fear not, little flock, for it pleases God your Father to give you the kingdom. Fear not though you have all to dread. You are but a feeble flock, a flock so small that a child can count it. And behold nations, worldlings, misers, the voluptuous and libertines gathered by the thousands to fight you with their mockery, their calumnies, their scorn and their violences.
You are little, they are great. You are poor, they are rich. You have no credit, they are backed up by everything. You are weak, they have authority in hand. But one more blow, do not fear voluntarily. Listen to Jesus Christ: He tells you, it is I who am your Good Shepherd and I know you for My sheep. Be not surprised if the world hate you. Know that it hated me first. If you were of the world, the world would cherish you as things which belonged to it, but because you are not of the world, you must suffer its hatred, its calumnies, its injuries, its scorn and its outrages.
I am your protector and your defense, little Company, the Eternal Father tells you. I have engraved you in My heart and written in My hands in order to cherish and defend you because you have placed your confidence in Me and not in men, in My Providence and not in money. (Blessed Louis de Montfort, The Secret of Mary)
May Our Lady, Queen of the Martyrs, pray for us in this time of persecution from without and apostasy from within the very precincts that have exchanged Catholicism for the diabolical lie of the Judeo-Masonic ethos of conciliarism. The final victory belongs to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May we plant the seeds for this victory each and every day of our lives as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.

From Father I. B. Prainitis's The Talmud Unmasked
Publisher-Editor's note: Here are some excerpts to illustrate that the very people who want the world to believe that it is a "hate crime" to seek the conversion of Talmudic Jews and to oppose their efforts to eradicate the Holy Name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Chris and the authority of His true Church from the minds and heats of men and their nations are actually the real purveyors of a hatred that is from Hell itself:
Many passages in the Talmudic books treat of the birth, life, death, and teachings of Jesus Christ. He is not always referred to by the same name, however, but is diversely called "That Man," "A Certain One," "The Carpenter's Son," "The One Who Was Hanged," etc.
Article I. - Concerning the Names of Jesus Christ
1. The real name of Christ in Hebrew is Jeschua Hanotsri - Jesus the Nazarene. He is called Notsri from the city of Nazareth in which he was brought up. Thus in the Talmud Christians also are called Notsrim - Nazarenes.
Since the word Jeschua means "Savior," the name Jesus rarely occurs in the Jewish books. It is almost always abbreviated to Jeschu, which is maliciously taken as if it were composed of the initial letters of the three words Immach Schemo Vezikro - "May his name and memory be blotted out."
2. In the Talmud Christ is called Otho Isch - "That man," i.e. the one who is known to all. In the tract Abhodah Zarah, 6a, we read: "He is called a Christian who follows the false teachings of that man, who taught them to celebrate the feast on the first day of the Sabbath, that is, to worship on the first day after the Sabbath"
3. Elsewhere he is simply called Peloni - "A Certain One." In Chagigah, 4b, we read: "Mary...the mother of a certain one, of whom it is related in Schabbath..." (104b)
That this Mary is none other than the mother of Jesus will be shown later.
4. Out of contempt, Jesus is also called Naggar bar naggar - "the carpenter son of a carpenter", also Ben charsch etaim - "the son of a wood worker."
5. He is also called Talui - "The one who was hanged." Rabbi Samuel, the son of Mair, in the Hilch. Akum of Maimonides, refers to the fact that it was forbidden to take part in the Christian feats of Christmas and Easter because they were celebrated on account of him who was hanged. And Rabbi Aben Ezra, in a commentary on Genes. also calls him Talui, whose image the Emperor Constantine reproduced on his banner. "...in the days of Constantine, who made a change of religion and placed the figure of the one who was hanged on his banner."
Article II. - The Life of Christ
The Talmud teaches that Jesus Christ was illegitimate and was conceived during menstruation; that he had the soul of Esau; that he was a fool, a conjurer, a seducer; that he was crucified, buried in hell and set up as an idol ever since by his followers.
1. ILLEGITIMATE AND CONCEIVED DURING MENSTRUATION
The following is narrated in the Tract Kallah, 1b:
"Once when the Elders were seated at the Gate, two young men passed by, one of whom had his covered, the other with his head bare. Rabbi Eliezer remarked that the one in his bare head was illegitimate, a mamzer. Rabbi Jehoschua said that he was conceived during menstruation, ben niddah. Rabbi Akibah, however, said that he was both. Whereupon the others asked Rabbi Akibah why he dared to contradict his colleagues. He answered that he could prove what he said. He went therefore to the boy's mother whom he saw sitting in the market place selling vegetables and said to her: "My daughter, if you will answer truthfully what I am going to ask you, I promise that you will be saved in the next life." She demanded that he would swear to keep his promise, and Rabbi Akibah did so - but with his lips only, for in his heart he invalidated his oath. Then he said: "Tell me, what kind of son is this of yours"? To which she replied: "The day I was married I was having menstruation, and because of this my husband left me. But an evil spirit came and slept with me and from this intercourse my son was born to me." Thus it was proved that this young man was not only illegitimate but also conceived during the menstruation of his mother. And when his questioners heard this they declared: "Great indeed was Rabbi Akibah when he corrected his Elders"! And they exclaimed: "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel who revealed his secret to Rabbi Akibah the son of Joseph"!
That the Jews understand this story to refer to Jesus and his mother, Mary, is clearly demonstrated in their book Toldath Jeschu - "The Generations of Jesus" - where the birth of our Savior is narrated in almost the same words.
Another story of this kind is narrated in Sanhedrin, 67a:
"Of all who are guilty of death by the Law, he alone is caught by a ruse. How is it done? They light a candle in an inner room and place witnesses in an adjoining room outside where they can see him and hear his voice, but where they cannot be seen by him. Then the one whom he tried to seduce says to him "Please repeat here privately what you told me before." If the seducer repeats what he said, the others ask him "But how shall we leave our God who is in heaven and serve idols?" If the seducer repents, then all is well.But if he says "This is our duty and it is right for us to do so," then the witnesses outside, who have heard him, bring him before the judge and stone him to death. This is what they did to the son of Stadi in Lud, and they hanged him on the eve of the Passover. Forthis son of Stada was the son of Pandira. For Rabbi Chasda tells us that Pandira was the husband of Stada, his mother, and he lived during the time Paphus the son of Jehuda. But his mother was stada, Mary of Magdala (a ladies' hairdresser) who, as it is said in Pumbadita, deserted her husband."
The meaning of this is that his Mary was called Stada, that is, a prostitute, because, according to what was taught at Pumbadita, she left her husband and committed adultery. This is also recorded in the Jerusalem Talmud and by Maimonides.
That the mention here is of Mary, the mother of Jesus, is verified in the Tract Chagigah, 4b:
"When Rabbi Bibhai was visited once by the Death Angel (the devil), the latter said to his assistant: "Go and bring to me Mary the hairdresser" (that is, kill her). He went and brought Mary the children's hairdresser - in place of the other Mary."
A marginal note explains this passage as follows:
"This story of Mary the Ladies' hairdresser happened under the Second Temple. She was the mother of Peloni, "that man," as he is called in the tract Schabbath."
In Schabbath the passage referred to says:
"Rabbi Elizer said to the Elders: "Did not the son Stada practice Egyptian magic by cutting it into his flesh?" They replied: "He was a fool, and we do not pay attention to what fools do. The son of Stada, Pandra's son, etc." as above in Sanhedrin, 67a.
This magic of the son of Stada is explained as follows in the book Beth Jacobh, fol. 127 a:
"The Magi, before they left Egypt, took special care not to put their magic in writing lest other peoples might come to learn it But he devised a new way by which he inscribed it on his skin, or made cuts in his skin and inserted it there and which, when the wounds healed up, did not show what they meant."
"There is little doubt who this Ben Stada was, or who the Jews understood him to be. Although the Rabbis in their additions to the Talmud try to hide their malice and say that it is not Jesus Christ, their deceit is plainly evident, and many things prove that they wrote and understood all these things about him. In the first place, they also call him the son of Pandira. Jesus the Nazarene is thus called in other passages of the Talmud where express mention is made of Jesus the son of Pandira. St. John Damascene also, in his Genealogy of Christ, mentions Panthera and the Son of Panthera.
"Secondly, this Stada is said to be Mary, and this Mary the mother of Peloni "that certain one," by which without doubt Jesus is meant. For in this way they were accustomed to cover up his name because they were afraid to mention it. If we had copies of the original manuscripts they would certainly prove this. And this also was the name of the mother of Jesus the Nazarene.
"Thirdly, he is called the Seducer of the People. The Gospels testify that Jesus was called this by the Jews, and their writings to this day are proof that they still call him by this name.
"Fourthly, he is called "the one who was hanged," which clearly refers to the crucifixion of Christ, especially since a reference to the time "on the eve of the Passover" is added, which coincides with the time of the crucifixion of Jesus. In Sanhedrin they wrote as follows: "On the eve of the Passover they hanged Jesus"
"Fifthly, as to what the Jerusalem Talmud says about the two disciples of the Elders who were sent as witnesses to spy on him, and who were afterwards brought forward as witnesses against him: This refers to the two "false witnesses" of whom the Evangelists Matthew and Luke make mention.
"Sixthly, concerning what they say about the son of Stada that he practiced Egyptian magical arts by cutting into his flesh: the same accusation is made against Christ in their hostile book Toldoth Jeschu.
"Lastly, the time corresponds. For it is said that this son of Stada lived in the days of Paphus the son of Jehuda, who was a contemporary of Rabbi Akibah. Akibah, however, lived at the time of the Ascension of Christ, and for some time after. Mary is also said to have lived under the Second Temple. All this clearly proves that they secretly and blasphemously understand this son of Stada to be Jesus Christ the son of Mary.
"Other circumstances may seem to contradict this. But that is nothing new in Jewish writings and is done on purpose so that Christians may not easily detect their trickery."
2. Furthermore, "In the secret books, which are not permitted to fall easily into the hands of Christians, they say that the soul of Esau came into Christ, that he was therefore evil and that he was Esau himself."
3. By some he is called a FOOL and INSANE
In Schabbath, 104b:
"They, [the Elders] said to him [Eliezer]: "He was a fool, and no one pays attention to fools."
4. A CONJURER AND MAGICIAN
In the infamous book Toldoth Jeschu, our Savior is blasphemed as follows:
"And Jesus said: Did not Isaiah and David, my ancestors, prophesy about me? The Lord said to me, thou art my son, today I have begotten thee, etc. Likewise in another place: The Lord said to my Lord, sit thou at my right hand. Now I ascend to my father who is in heaven and will sit at his right hand, which you will see with your own eyes. But you, Judas, will never reach that high. Then Jesus pronounced the great name of God (IHVH) and continued to do so until a wind came and took him up between earth and sky. Judas also pronounced the name of God and he likewise was taken up by the wind. In this way they both floated around in the air to the amazement of the onlookers. Then Judas, again pronouncing the Divine Nane, took hold of Jesus and pushed him down to earth. But Jesus tried to do the same to Judas and thus they fought together. And when Judas saw he could not win out over the works of Jesushe pissed on Jesus, and both thus being unclean they fell to earth; nor could they use the Divine name again until they had washed themselves."
Whether those who believe such devilish lies deserve greater hatred or pity, I cannot say.
In another place in the same book it is related that in the house of the Sanctuary there was a stone which the Patriarch Jacob anointed with oil. On this stone were carved the tetragrammatic letters of the Name (IHVH), and if anyone could learn from them he could destroy the world. They therefore decreed that no one must learn them, and they placed two dogs upon two iron columns before the Sanctuary so that if anyone should learn them the dogs would bark at him coming out and he would forget the letters through fear. Then it is related: "Jesus came and entered, learned the letters and wrote them down on parchment. Then he cut into the flesh of his thigh and inserted them there, and having pronounced the name, the wound healed."
In the Tract Sanhedrin (103a) the words of Psalm XCI, 10: "No plague shall come near thy dwelling," are explained as follows:
"That thou mayest never have a son or a disciple who will salt his food so much that he destroys his taste in public, like Jesus the Nazarene."
To salt one's food too much or to destroy one's taste, is proverbially said of one who corrupts his morals or dishonors himself, or who falls into heresy and idolatry and openly preaches it to others.
In the same book Sanhedrin (107b) we read:
"Mar said: Jesus seduced, corrupted and destroyed Israel."
Finally as punishment for his crimes and impiety, he suffered an ignominious death by being hanged on a cross on the eve of the Passover (as we have seen above).
8. BURIED IN HELL
The book Zohar, III, (282), tells us that Jesus died like a beast and was buried in that "dirt heap...where they throw the dead bodies of dogs and asses, and where the sons of Esau [the Christians] and of Ismael [the Turks], also Jesus and Mahommed, uncircumcized and unclean like dead dogs, are buried."
9. WORSHIPPED AS GOD AFTER HIS DEATH BY HIS FOLLOWERS
George El. Edzard, in his book Avoda Sara, quotes the following words of the commentator on the Hilkoth Akum (V,3) of Maimonides:
"In many passages of the Talmud mention is made of Jesus the Nazarene and of his disciples, and that the Gentiles believe that there is no other God besides him. In the book Chizzuk Emunah, part I, ch. 36, we read: "The Christians build up an argument from this [Zachary XII, 10] and say: Behold how thew Prophet testified that in future ages the Jews would would lament and weep because they crucified and killed the Messiah who was sent to them; and to prove that he meant Jesus the Nazarene, possessing both the divine and human nature, they quote the words: And they looked upon him whom they transfixed and they wept over him as a mother over her first born child.""
Maimonides attempts to prove how much Christians err in worshipping Jesus in his book Hilkoth Melakhim (IX, 4):
"If all the things he did had prospered, if he had rebuilt the Sanctuary in its place, and had gathered together the dispersed tribes of Israel, then he would certainly be the Messiah....But if so far hew has not done so and if he was killed, then it is clear he was not the Messiah whom the Law tells us to expect. He was similar to all the good and upright rulers of the House of David who died, and whom the Holy and Blessed Lord raised up for no other reason but to prove to many, as it is said (in Dan. XI, 35): And some of them who understand shall fall, to try and to purge them and to make them white, even till the end of time, because the appointed time is not yet. Daniel also prophesised about Jesus the Nazarene who thought he was the Christ, and who was put to death by the judgment of the Senate: (Dan. V.14): ...and the robbers of thy people shall exalt
themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fail. What could be plainer? For all the Prophets said that the Christ would set Israel free, would bring it salvation, restore its dispersed peoples and confirm their laws. But he was the cause of the destruction of Israel and caused the rest of them to be dispersed and humiliated, so that the Law was changed and the greater part of the world was seduced to worship another God. Truly no one can understand the designs of the Creator, nor are his ways our ways. For all that has been built up by Jesus the Nazarene, and by the Turks who came after him, tend only to prepare the way for the coming of Christ the King, and to prepare the whole world equally for the service of the Lord, as it is said: For then I shall give a clean moth to all peoples that all may call upon the name of the Lord, and bow down in unison before him. How is this being accomplished? Already the whole world is filled with the praise of Christ, the Law and the Commandments, and his praises have spread to far distant lands and to peoples whose hearts and bodies are uncircumcized. These discuss with one another about the Law that was destroyed - some saying that the commandments were once true, but have ceased to exist; others that there is a great mystery about it, that the Messiah-King has come and that their doctrine has revealed it. But when the Christ truly comes and is successful, and is raised up and exalted, then everything will be changed and these things will be shown to be false and vain."
10. AN IDOL
In the Tract Abhodah Zarah, (21a Toseph), we read:
"It is of importance to inquire the reasons why men nowadays even sell and rent their houses to Gentiles. Some say this is legal because it is said in Tosephta: No one shall rent his house to a gentile either here [in the land of Israel] or elsewhere because it is known that he will bring an idol into it. It is nevertheless allowed to rent them stables, barns and lodging houses, even though it is known that they will bring idols into them. The reason is because a distinction can be made between a place into which an idol will be carried in order to leave it there permanently, and a place where it will not be left permanently, in which case it is allowed. And since the gentiles, among whom we now live, do not bring their idol into their homes to leave it there permanently, but only for a time - while someone is dead in the house or when someone is dying, nor do they even perform any religious rites there - it is therefore permitted to sell and rent them houses."
Rabbi Ascher, in his Commentary on Abhodah Zarah (83d) speaks not less clearly on this matter: "Today it is permitted to rent houses to Gentiles because they bring their idol into them only for a time, when somebody is sick." And in the same place he says "Today they have a practice of incensing their idol.""
All this, and much more like it, proves beyond a doubt that when the Rabbis speak of the idols of the Gentiles among whom they lived at that time, when no idols were worshipped, they clearly meant the Christian "idol," namely, the image of Christ on the crucifix and the Holy Communion.
Here is a second excerpt:
CHRISTIANS MUST BE EXTERMINATED
The followers of "that man," whose name is taken by the Jews to
mean "May his name and memory be blotted out," are not otherwise to be
regarded than as people whom it would be good to get rid of. They are
called Romans and tyrants who hold captive the children of Israel, and
by their destruction the Jews would be freed from this Fourth Captivity.
Every Jew is therefore bound to do all he can to destroy that impious
kingdom of the Edomites (Rome) which rules the whole world. Since,
however, it is not always and everywhere possible to effect this
extermination of Christians, the Talmud orders that they should be
attacked at least indirectly, namely: by injuring them in every possible
way, and by thus lessening their power, help towards their ultimate
destruction. Wherever it is possible a Jew should kill Christians, and
do so without mercy.
Article I. - Harm must be done to Christians
A Jew is commanded to harm Christians wherever he can, both
indirectly by not helping them in any way, and also directly by wrecking
their plans and projects; neither must he save a Christian who is in
danger of death.
I. Good must not be done to Christians
In Zohar (1, 25b) it says:
"Those who do good to the Akum . . . will not rise from the dead."
At times it is permitted to do good to Christians, but only in
order to help Israel, namely, for the sake of peace and to hide hatred
of them. Maimonides in Hilkhoth Akum (X, 6) says:
"Needy Gentiles may be helped as well as needy Jews, for the sake of
In Iore Dea (148, 12 Hagah) it says:
"Therefore if you enter a town and find them celebrating a feast, you
may pretend to rejoice with them in order to hide your hatred. Those,
however, who care about the salvation of their souls should keep away
from such celebrations. You should make it known that it is a hateful
thing to rejoice with them, if you can do so without incurring enmity."
1. IT IS NOT PERMITTED TO PRAISE A CHRISTIAN
In Abhodah Zarah (20, a, Toseph) it says:
"Do not say anything in praise of them, lest it be said: How good that Goi is!"
In this way they explain the words of Deuteronomy (VII, 2) ... and
thou shalt show no mercy unto them [Goim], as cited in the Gemarah.
Rabbi S. Iarchi explains this Bible passage as follows:
"Do not pay them any compliments; for it is forbidden to say: how good
that Goi is."
In Iore Dea (151, 14) it says:
"No one is allowed to praise them or to say how good an Akum is. How
much less to praise what they do or to recount anything about them which
would redound to their glory. If, however, while praising them you
intend to give glory to God, namely, because he has created comely
creatures, then it is allowed to do so."
2. A JEW NOT ALLOWED TO MENTION THE THINGS WHICH CHRISTIANS USE FOR THEIR IDOLATROUS WORSHIP
In Hilkhoth Akum (V, 12) it says:
"It is also forbidden to make mention of the Akum; for it is written (Exodus XXIII, 13):...and make no mention of other gods."
3. THEIR IDOLS MUST BE SPOKEN OF WITH CONTEMPT
In Iore Dea (146, 15) it says:
"Their idols must be destroyed, or called by contemptuous names."
Ibidem, (147, 5):
"It is permitted to deride idols, and it is forbidden to say to a Goi: May your God help you, or I hope you will succeed."
Rabbi Bechai, explaining the text of Deuteronomy about hating
"The Scripture taught us to hate idols and to call them by ignominious
names. Thus, if the name of a church is Bethgalia - "house of
magnificence," it should be called Bethkaria - an insignificant house, a
pigs' house, a latrine. For this word, karia, denotes a low-down, slum
In numerous places ignominious names are given by the Jews to
Christian things. It will not be out of place to list a few of these
names which they give to things and persons which are held holy and dear
by Christians, as follows:
JESUS is ignominiously called Jeschu - which means, May his name
and memory be blotted out. His proper name in Hebrew is Jeschua, which
MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS, is called Charia - dung, excrement (German Dreck). In Hebrew her proper name is Miriam.
CHRISTIAN SAINTS, the word for which in Hebrew Kedoschim, are
called Kededchim (cinaedos) - feminine men (Fairies). Women saints are
called Kedeschoth, whores.
SUNDAY is called the day of calamity.
FEAST OF CHRISTMAS is called Nital, denoting extermination.
EASTER is not called by the proper name Pesach (Passover), but Ketsach, meaning a cutting down; or Kesach, a Gallows.
A CHRISTIAN CHURCH is not called Beth Hattefillah, House of
Prayer, but Beth Hattiflah, a House of Vanity, a House of Evil.
THE GOSPEL BOOKS are called Aavon Gilaion, Books of Iniquity.
CHRISTIAN SACRIFICES are called Dung Offerings. In the Jerusalem
Talmud (fol. 13b) the following occurs:
"He who sees them mezabbelim (excrementing - sacrificing) before their
idol, let him say (Exod. XXII, 20): He that sacrificeth unto an idol
shall be utterly destroyed."
Rabbi Iarchi (referring to Num. XXV, 3) teaches that the Gentiles actually honor their God by excrementing before him.
A CHRISTIAN GIRL who works for Jews on their sabbath is called a Schaw-wesschicksel, Sabbath Dirt.
4. A JEW IS NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE GIFTS TO CHRISTIANS
In Hilkohoth Akum (X, 5) it says:
"It is forbidden to give gifts to the Goim. But it is permitted to give
them to a convert who lives among the Jews; for it is said: To the
traveller who stops in your cities, give it to him to eat, or sell it to
a Gentile, that is sell it, not give it."
In Iore Dea (151, 11) it says:
"It is forbidden to give free gifts to the Akum with whom a Jew may not treat familiarly."
The Talmud, however, allows a Jew to give gifts to Gentiles who
are known to himand from whom he has hope of getting something in
5. A JEW IS FORBIDDEN TO SELL HIS FARM TO CHRISTIANS
In Iore Dea (334, 43) it says:
"In 24 cases a Jew must be repudiated, namely ...8. Anyone who sells his
farm to the Akum must be sent into exile - unless he undertakes to make
up for all the harm that follows as a consequence of having the Akum
live near the Jews."
6. IT IS FORBIDDEN TO TEACH A TRADE TO CHRISTIANS
In Iore Dea (154, 2) it says:
"It is not permitted to teach any trade to the Akum."
II. Harm must be done to the Work of Christians
Since the Goim minister to Jews like beasts of burden, belong to a Jew together with his life and all his faculties:
"The life of a Goi and all his physical powers belong to a Jew." (A. Rohl. Die Polem. p.20)
It is an axiom of the Rabbis that a Jew may take anything that
belongs to Christians for any reason whatsoever, even by fraud; nor can
such be called robbery since it is merely taking what belongs to him.
In Babha Bathra (54 b) it says:
"All things pertaining to the Goim are like a desert; the first
person to come along and take them can claim them for his own."
1. CHRISTIANS MUST NOT BE TOLD IF THEY PAY TOO MUCH TO A JEW
In Choschen Hammischpat (183, 7) it says:
"If you send a messenger to collect money from an Akum and the Akum pays
too much, the messenger may keep the difference. But if the messenger
does not know about it, then you may keep it all yourself."
2. LOST PROPERTY OF CHRISTIANS MUST NOT BE RETURNED TO THEM
In Choschen Hamm. (266, 1) it says:
"A Jew may keep anything he finds which belongs to the Akum, for it is
written: Return to thy brethren what is lost (Deuter. XXII, 3). For he
who returns lost property [to Christians] sins against the Law by
increasing the power of the transgressors of the Law. It is
praiseworthy, however, to return lost property if it is done to honor
the name of God, namely, if by so doing Christians will praise the Jews
and look upon them as honorable people."
3. CHRISTIANS MAY BE DEFRAUDED
In Babha Kama (113b) it says:
"It is permitted to deceive a Goi."
And in Choschen Hamm. (156, 5 Hagah) it says:
"If a Jew is doing good business with an Akum it is not allowed to other
Jews, in certain places, to come and do business with the same Akum. In
other places, however, it is different, where another Jews is allowed
to go to the same Akum, lead him on, do business with him and to deceive
him and take his money. For the wealth of the Akum is to be regarded as
common property and belongs to the first who can get it. There are
some, however, who say that this should not be done."
In Choschen Hamm. (183, 7 Hagah) it says:
"If a Jew is doing business with an Akum and a fellow Israelite comes
along and defrauds the Akum, either by false measure, weight or number,
he must divide his profit with his fellow Israelite, since both had a
part in the deal, and also in order to help him along."
4. A JEW MAY PRETEND HE IS A CHRISTIAN TO DECEIVE CHRISTIANS
In Iore Dea (157, 2 Hagah) it says:
"If a Jew is able to deceive them [idolaters] by pretending he is a worshipper of the stars, he may do so."
5. A JEW IS ALLOWED TO PRACTICE USURY ON CHRISTIANS
In Abhodah Zarah (54a) it says: "It is allowed to take usury from Apostates who fall into idolatry."
And in Iore Dea (159, 1) it says:
"It is permitted, according to the Torah, to lend money to an Akum with
usury. Some of the Elders, however, deny this except in a case of life
and death. Nowadays it is permitted for any reason."
III. Christians may be harmed in Legal Matters
1. A JEW MAY LIE AND PERJURE HIMSELF TO CONDEMN A CHRISTIAN
In Babha Kama (113a) it says:
"Our teaching is as follows: When a Jew and a Goi come into court,
absolve the Jew, if you can, according to the laws of Israel. If the Goi
wins, tell him that is what our laws require. If however, the Jew can
be absolved according to the gentile law, absolve him and say it is due
to our laws. If this cannot be done proceed callously against the Goim,
as Rabbi Ischmael advises. Rabbi Akibha, however, holds that you cannot
act fraudulently lest you profane the Name of God, and have a Jew
commited for perjury."
A marginal note, however, explains this qualification of Rabbi Akibha as follows:
"The name of God is not profaned when it is not known by the Goi that the Jew has lied."
And further on, the Babha Kama (113b) says:
"The name of God is not profaned when, for example, a Jew lies to a Goi
by saying: 'I gave something to your father, but he is dead; you must
return it to me,' as long as the Goi does not know that you are lying."
2. A JEW MAY PERJURE HIMSELF WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE
In Kallah (1b, p.18) it says:
"She (the mother of the mamzer) said to him, 'Swear to me.' And Rabbi
Akibha swore with his lips, but in his heart he invalidated his oath."
A similar text is found in Schabbuoth Hagahoth of Rabbi Ascher
"If the magistrate of a city compels Jews to swear that they will not
escape from the city nor take anything out of it, they may swear falsely
by saying to themselves that they will not escape today, nor take
anything out of the city today only."
IV. Christians must be harmed in Things Necessary for Life
Jews must spare no means in fighting the tyrants who hold them
in this Fourth Captivity in order to set themselves free. They must
fight Christians with astuteness and do nothing to prevent evil from
happening to them: their sick must not be cared for, Christian women in
childbirth must not be helped, nor must they be saved when in danger of
1. A JEW MUST ALWAYS TRY TO DECEIVE CHRISTIANS
In Zohar (I, 160a) it says:
"Rabbi Jehuda said to him [Rabbi Cezkia]: 'He is to be praised who is
able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much
to be praised who get free from them and fight against them. 'Rabbi
Chezkia asked, 'How must we fight against them?' Rabbi Jehuda said, 'By
wise counsel thou shalt war against them' (Proverbs, ch. 24, 6). By what
kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must fight against
his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau - by deceit and trickery
whenever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until
proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we
should free ourselves from them and rule over them."
2. A SICK CHRISTIAN MUST NOT BE AIDED
In Iore Dea (158, 1) it says:
"The Akum are not to be cured, even for money, unless it would incur their enmity."
3. A CHRISTIAN WOMAN IN CHILDBIRTH MUST NOT BE HELPED
In Orach Chaiim (330, 2) it says:
"No help is to be given to an Akun woman in labor on the sabbath, even in a small way, for the Sabbath must not be violated."
4. A CHRISTIAN IN DANGER OF DEATH MUST NOT BE HELPED
In Choschen Hamm. (425, 5) it says:
"If you see a heretic, who does not believe in the Torah, fall into a
well in which there is a ladder, hurry at once and take it away and say
to him 'I have to go and take my son down from a roof; I will bring the
ladder back to you at once' or something else. The Kuthaei, however, who
are not our enemies, who take care of the sheep of the Israelites, are
not to be killed directly, but they must not be saved from death."
And in Iore Dea (158, 1) it says:
"The Akum who are not enemies of ours must not be killed directly,
nevertheless they must not be saved from danger of death. For example,
if you see one of them fall into the sea, do not pull him out unless he
promises to give you money."
Maimonides, in Hilkhoth Akum (X, 1) says:
"Do not have pity for them, for it is said (Deuter. VII, 2): Show no
mercy unto them. Therefore, if you see an Akum in difficulty or
drowning, do not go to his help. And if he is in danger of death, do not
save him from death. But it is not right to kill him by your own hand
by shoving them into a well or in some other way, since they are not at
war with us."
Article II. - Christians are to be Killed
Lastly, the Talmud commands that Christians are to be killed without mercy. In the Abhodah Zarah (26b) it says:
"Heretics, traitors and apostates are to be thrown into a well and not rescued."
And in Choschen Hammischpat (388, 10) it says:
"A spy is to be killed, even in our days, wherever he is found. He may
be killed even before he confesses. And even if he admits that he only
intended to do harm to somebody, and if the harm which he intended is
not very great, it is sufficient to have him condemned to death. He must
be warned, however, not to confess to this. But if he impudently says
'No, I will confess it!' then he must be killed, and the sooner the
better. If there is no time to warn him, it is not necessary to do so.
There are some who say that a traitor is to be put to death only when it
is impossible to get rid of him by mutilating him, that is, by cutting
out his tongue or his eyes, but if this can be done he must not be
killed, since he is not any worse than others who persecute us."
And in Choschen Hamm. again (388, 15) it says:
"If it can be proved that someone has betrayed Israel three times, or
has given the money of Israelites to the Akum, a way must be found after
prudent consideration to wipe him off the face of the earth."
I. Renegades to be Killed
Even a Christian who is found studying the Law of Israel merits death. In Sanhedrin (59a) it says:
"Rabbi Jochanan says: A Goi who pries into the Law is guilty to death."
II. Baptized Jews are to be Put to Death
In Hilkhoth Akum (X, 2) it says:
"These things [supra] are intended for idolaters. But Israelites also,
who lapse from their religion and become epicureans, are to be killed,
and we must persecute them to the end. For they afflict Israel and turn
the people from God."
And in Iore Dea (158, 2
Hagah) it says:
"Renegades who turn to the pleasures of the Akum, and who become
contaminated with them by worshipping stars and planets as they do, are
to be killed."
Likewise in Choschen Hamm. (425, 5) it says:
"Jews who become epicureans, who take to the worship of stars and
planets and sin maliciously; also those who eat the flesh of wounded
animals, or who dress in vain clothes, deserve the name of epicureans;
likewise those who deny the Torah and the Prophets of Israel - the law
is that all those should be killed; and those who have the power of life
and death should have them killed; and if this cannot be done, they
should be led to their death by deceptive methods."
Rabbi Maimonides, in Hilkhoth Teschubhah (III, 8) gives the list of those who are considered as denying the Law:
"There are three classes of people who deny the Law of the Torah: (1)
Those who say that the Torah was not given by God, at least one verse or
one word of it, and who say that it was all the work of Moses; (2)
Those who reject the explanation of the Torah, namely, the Oral Law of
the Mischnah, and do not recognize the authority of the Doctors of the
Law, like the followers of Tsadok (Sadducees) and Baithos; (3) Those who
say that God changed the Law for another New Law, and that the Torah no
longer has any value, although they do not deny that it was given by
God, as the Christians and the Turks believe. All of these deny the Law
of the Torah."
III. Christians are to be Killed because They are Tyrants
In Zohar (I, 25a) it says:
"The People of the Earth are idolaters, and it has been written about
them: Let them be wiped off the face of the earth. Destroy the memory of
the Amalekites. They are with us still in this Fourth Captivity,
namely, the Princes [of Rome] . . . who are really Amalakites."
1. THESE PRINCES ARE TO BE KILLED FIRST
For if they are allowed to live, the hope of the liberation of
the Jews is in vain, and their prayers for release from this Fourth
Captivity are of no avail. In Zohar (I, 219B) it says:
"It is certain that our captivity will last until the princes of the
gentiles who worship idols are destroyed."
And again in Zohar (II, 19a) it says:
"Rabbi Jehuda said: Come and see how it is; how the princes have assumed
power over Israel and the Israelites make no outcry. But their
rejoicing is heard when the prince falls. It is written that: the King
of the Egyptians died and soon the children of Israel were released from
captivity; they cried out and their voice ascended to God."
