Satanic creatures

The Hatanya, the fundamental book of the Habbad movement, one of the most important branches of Hasidism, declares that all non-Jews are totally Satanic creatures "in whom there is absolutely nothing good." Even a non-Jewish embryo is said to be qualitatively different from a Jewish one. The very existence of a non-Jew is "unessential," whereas all of creation was created solely for the sake of the Jews.

In the Decalogue itself, the Eighth Commandment, "Thou Shalt not steal" (Exodus 20:15), is taken to be a prohibition against "stealing" (that is kidnapping) a Jewish person. "The reason," Shahak writes, "is that according to the Talmud all acts forbidden by the Decalogue are capital offenses. Stealing property is not a capital offense (while kidnapping of Gentiles by Jews is allowed by Talmudic law)-hence the interpretation."

Chauvinistic meaning

In numerous cases, Shahak shows, general terms such as "thy fellow," "stranger," or even "man," are taken to have an exclusivist and chauvinistic meaning. The famous verse "Thou shalt love thy fellow as thyself" (Leviticus, 19:18) is understood by classical (and present-day Orthodox) Judaism "as an injunction to love one's fellow Jew, not any fellow human. Similarly, the verse `neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy fellow' (Leviticus, 19:16) is supposed to mean that one must not stand idly by when the life (`blood') of a fellow Jew is in danger; but a Jew ... is in general forbidden to save the life of a Gentile, because "he is not thy fellow."

Shahak and Mezvinsky cite the words of Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh, who wrote a chapter of a book in praise of Baruch Goldstein and his murder of 29 Muslims at prayer. An immigrant to Israel from the U.S., Ginsburgh speaks freely of Jews' genetic-based spiritual superiority over non-Jews. "If you saw two people drowning, a Jew and a non-Jew, the Torah says you save the Jewish life first. If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA ... If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value."

Prophetic voice

During his life, Israel Shahak was rebuked, spat upon and threatened with death for his defence of human rights. How long will it take before he is recognized as a genuine Jewish prophetic voice in an era when such voices were difficult to find?


More truths from a difficult part of the world. That part which actively practices torture, disappearances, terror and is engaged in the ethnic cleansing of its indigenous inhabitants.

This nation loudly proclaims that it is on a "Mission from God" to settle lands promised to them by some mysterious being.

And that all forms of force against the indigenous people are not only allowed, but encouraged, to help them steal as much land and water resources as possible.

Such is the sick and twisted lunatic thought process of the demented Israeli Zionists. Since their God has given them a "thumbs-up", their illogical reasoning says that they can bomb, loot, murder and plunder their way to Eretz Israel...

Their god has ordained this FINAL SOLUTION, freeing these monsters from tiresome debates over right and wrong and whether or not a fellow being is human.

According to their religious law, all non-Jews are nothing more than Satanic creatures and as such, deserve nothing more than a quick and painful death. Or a slow and painful death, as the good people of Gaza are finding out on a daily basis.

Such is the state of affairs in that racist and hegemonic state called Israel.
