Uncensored German TV interview with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad




ZDF television: You know as well as I do that Israel threatens with an attack on Iran if the matter of the nuclear program cannot be solved any other way.

Ahmadinejad: Do the Zionists show clarity and transparency in their nuclear issue? They have more than 250 nuclear warheads. Isn't that a problem, if they are so equipped?

ZDF television: Israel does not belong to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), it doesn't have a contractual obligation to disclose it. Iran does have this obligation.

Ahmadinejad: That means everyone who's not a member of the Non-Proliferation Treaty is free to do whatever they want?

ZDF television: It appears so.

Ahmadinejad: That means if someone is a member of the Non-Proliferation Treaty they may be disenfranchised? And the Zionists may threaten the country -- a member country of the IAEA? 

In principle, we are against this nuclear bomb. That is an inhuman weapon, from our point of view. And immoral. Those that have such weapons are not in the situation to use them. The time of the atom bomb was brought to an end with the end of the Second World War, and it was simply buried. Were the Zionists able to do anything about the Hamas or the Hizbollah with their weapons? Or did these weapons save the Soviet Union?...

The atom bomb belongs to the previous century. Those that search for something like that have stayed behind -- stayed behind in history and in terms of humanity and policy. 

But my question is, why do the Zionists simply have the right to threaten all other people, that is my question. Is there an unwritten law that elevates the Zionists above all international regulations and laws and decrees -- to enforce their rights even toward the American people, even with violence? And do the same in Europe and in Iran? Kill, terrorize, destroy? Do they have that right? 

Why do the European Nations support the Zionists blindly? Why must this capital and money of the peoples of Europe be spent for the Zionists, and used even for the production of weapons? 

Iran is not an artificial country, it is not an occupied country, we are not a regime of occupation. Iran had 7,000, 10,000 years of history and civilization, it is an autonomous country.

ZDF television: Israel an artificial country?

Ahmadinejad: Of course -- you know it, and the others know it too. How did this nation, this regime come to be? It was a colonial endeavor, created by a lie....They have invented a story with the title ‘holocaust' and the damage, the cost for that, had to be paid by the Palestinians.’''



IN GERMAN: 42 minute uncensored ZDF television interview with the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

An outraged, Zionist-approved German-Iranian scholar, Dr. Wahied Wahdat-Hagh, told the mass circulation German newspaper Bild on Sunday March 25, 2012, that “Ahmadinejad was able to present himself as a quite friendly head of state who presented Iran as the victim of an indiscriminate use of Israeli state power. The interview was celebrated as a great success in Iran and an unbelievable prize win for Ahmadinejad, and this was made possible by a broadcast from our publicly funded television!” he said.

German TV broadcasts Iranian Holocaust denial 
By Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, March 26, 2012

BERLIN – German Iranians and German Jews on Sunday criticized ZDF (Second German Television) for broadcasting without objection an interview in which Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denied the Holocaust.... The Holocaust is “a lie of Israel” that allows the Jewish state to hurt the Palestinians, Ahmadinejad said in the ZDF interview broadcasted last week.

 Claus Kleber, a brand name journalist for ZDF, a tax-payer funded, public station, aired the 45-minute interview on the popular news channel.

 Dieter Graumann, head of Germany’s 105,000 member Jewish community, told the Bild am Sonntag paper that ZDF provided Ahmadinejad a platform to spread his “poison.” “I am very disappointed that a respected German journalist, and on top of that, a public station, allowed the most brazen remarks from notorious Holocaust denier Ahmadinejad to remain unchallenged,” Graumann said. Cleber said he did not contradict Ahmadinejad because he did not want to give him the opportunity to “fully spread his rubbish,” according to a statement cited in the Berlin daily Tagesspiegel.

 Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany, but Iranian diplomats and politicians have denied the Shoah at state-funded events in Germany. German authorities chose not to purse violations of the country’s Holocaust denial law in 2008 against senior Iranian politician Mohammad Larijani for denying the Holocaust at a German Foreign Ministry event in Berlin. A year later, his brother, Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani, issued statements containing elements of Holocaust denial at the annual Munich Security Conference, saying his country has “different perspectives on the Holocaust.”

 While Germany enforces its anti-Holocaust denial law against neo-Nazis, the authorities fail to apply it to Iranian officials.

Wahdat-Hagh, who has written extensively about human-rights violations in Iran and Islamic-animated anti-Semitism, is the author of a new book, The Islamist Totalitarianism. Omid Nouripour, a Bundestag deputy for the Green Party who was born in Tehran, told Bild that the interview represents a “moral failure” of Claus Kleber. “Kleber did not cover the bloody repression of the protests against the regime in Iran. "That is a big journalistic mistake because the human rights question cannot be separated from the nuclear weapons questions,” Nouripour said. Iran's president ended the interview saying, "We very much like Germany. We like you very much [Mr. Kleber].”

Michael Hoffman notes: Israeli officials regularly travel to Germany and the U.S. and are routinely interviewed on mass media television without being challenged about Israeli apartheid walls and assassination of Iranian scientists, Talmudic racism, homicidal, gentile-hating rabbis, the Israeli nuclear weapons monopoly, or their denial of the Israeli holocaust against Lebanon and Palestine.

The Israelis, backed by Saudi Arabia and the Republican Party in the USA, are seeking war with Iran in order to silence radical Iranian dissent from the sacred Zionist gas chamber propaganda by which counterfeit “Israel" justifies its ongoing terrorism against Lebanon and Palestine.

With this uncensored television broadcast, which could not be shown on PBS or any other major TV network in America, some members of the German establishment are sending a welcome message of defiance to their quondam Israeli overseers who have for decades viciously and collectively branded the German people with the Mark of Cain. At last some elite Germans are beginning to defend their God-given dignity, in this case by nationally showcasing President Ahmadinejad’s remarks without censorship or rancor.

The Other Side of the Talmud Debate

Michael Hoffman Refutes a Defense of the Talmud


Unless (or until) it is removed by Chabad.org, as of March 18, the following link will take you to a  20-minute video of a lecture given at Oxford University by Dr. Asaf Yedidya: “NAZI ATTACKS ON THE TALMUDANTI-SEMITIC READINGS OF JEWISH TEXTS.” 


Dr. Yedidya is "lecturer in Jewish History at the Center for Jewish Studies at Bar-Ilan University." 


You should watch Dr. Yedidya's lecture first, and then the following 19-minute response to the lecture by Michael Hoffman.



Christian scholar Michael Hoffman’s response to Dr. Asaf Yedidya’s lecture

In his reply, Hoffman points out the use of misdirection and censored texts in the Oxford lecture and the inaccuracies and omissions employed in order to demonize Talmud critics and uphold the alleged benevolence of the Talmud Bavli. Hoffman documents Talmudic racism and homicide by quoting from the Gemara itself, as well as rabbinic authorities having the status of Posek Ha-dor and Gadol Ha-dor.

Finkelstein: Opponents of Israeli occupation are "cultic" and not pragmatic



Dear Norman Finkelstein

re: "Norman Finkelstein Interview with Frank Barat: BDS Campaign, Imperial College London" (England)

I watched your talk with Frank Barat from last February (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASIBGSSw4lI).

I don't disagree with everything you said, but Mr. Barat seemed overwhelmed by your passion and did not ask questions that should have been asked of you.

According to you, some of the opponents of the Israeli occupation, and of the Israeli state itself, are "cultic" and not pragmatic, and are bound to fail due to the fact that their legal arguments are hypocritical. Therefore they are lacking in appeal to the masses of people because they want the law upheld with regard to the Israeli occupation but not with regard to the Israeli state's right to exist.

Mr. Barat should have asked you, what masses are you talking about, if not the Western masses? Surely the fall of the Fourth Reich in Jerusalem would have enormous appeal to the region's 100 million Arabs, but for some reason they don't seem to comprise a meaningful constituent in your realpolitik. Why?

A haven for Judaic persons can be guaranteed in the pre-1967 borders without that haven being based on racist Zionist laws of return that give residency rights to Judaics from New Zealand and Brooklyn over the children of native Palestinians.

The Nazi/Talmudic Israeli government can be legally overthrown without overthrowing a guaranteed safe haven for Judaic people now resident in Palestine. What would be wrong with such an overthrow? If it worked for South Africa why can't it work for Palestine?

Your reference to the "law" of the United Nations smacks of a divine mandate. There is nothing divine about the U.N. and if the Divestment and Solidarity people were to drop references to U.N. law and harken to appeals to the immemorial law against colonial empires and racist reichs, then the hypocrisy you excoriate would be resolved.

You are willing to support the right to exist of the racist Zionist regime on the basis that its "rights" were established by the UN (at the behest of Stalin and Truman). You don't want the fate of the Israeli Arabs to trump considerations of the survival of the Zionist system since many other countries subjugate their minorities, so why single out the Israelis for doing it?

And by extension, your argument implies, why try to stop this oppression by overthrowing the Israeli government and creating a new government with an equalitarian constitution?

One thing that makes the Israeli oppression different from your example of the Dalits ("untouchables") in India or another flagrant instance, that of the Shiites in Bahrain, is that those governments don't run morality pageants and daily "Holocaust" museum tours showcasing the supreme ethics of their nations over the rest of humanity, with "lessons" for all mankind that no should ever forget. Whether or not this Talmudic megalomania plays in Peoria should not be the main criterion for whether or not we should call it to account.

Unlike some of your Leftist critics, I accept the fact that you are basically honest and that you have arrived at your latest views from a  desire to be politically effective and fair to all.

I see some serious holes in your position however, and I hope that at some point you will address my questions in some forum.

Sincerely,
Michael Hoffman

Jail those who abuse Judaic children with Talmudic circumcision


N.Y. State's Hasidic Circumcision Protocol Rescinded More Than 4 Years Ago 
The NY State Health Department's protocol for MBP (metzitzah b'peh), widely understood in the medical community as worthless, was rescinded in 2007 after Governor George Pataki left office. Yet even though the state no longer agreed that MBP could be safely done, many Hasidim continued to do the oral penis sucking that has killed at least one child in the past year and may have killed and/or sickened many more. The medically unsound protocol was Pataki's concession to intense Hasidic pressure lead by Satmar and Agudath Israel of America rabbis.
Hella Winston broke the story in The Jewish Week...
Rabbi David Zwiebel of Agudath Israel of America told Winston he did not know the protocol was rescinded.
Even if that is true (and there is evidence that it may not be), Zwiebel knew that every medical scientist who is not a stooge – like Dr. Daniel Berman, for example – for him and the moetzet gedolei haTorah, the so-called gedolim, senior rabbis, who lead Agudah, and who has been asked has said clearly that there is no safe way to directly suck a baby's penis / open circumcision wound. And all those "gedolim" knew it, as well, as did both Satmar Rebbes, the CRC (of Williamsburg) rabbis, and Rabbi David Niederman, Satmar's point man on issues requiring pressuring (or, perhaps, if rumors are true, bribing) politicians. Even Rabbi Shea Hecht and other Chabad rabbis lobbied to keep metzitzah b'peh (MBP) legal.
Herpes Simplex 1 is transferred through MBP. Sometimes it damages the baby, causing illness immediately or even years later. Sometimes it causes brain damage. Sometimes it kills.
Every one of these men I mentioned above, including Berman, should be held legally responsible for the death of the baby who was killed in September when a mohel sucked his bleeding penis.
The Jewish Week's Hella Winston exclusively reported that Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer, the mohel involved in the Herpes Simplex 1 death of a baby and the Herpes Simplex 1 brain damage of his brother in 2004 gave Herpes Simplex 1 to another child in 2007.
Fischer should have been barred from doing MBP in 2004 or 2005. He wasn't because the men I mentioned above lobbied against it and against banning MBP.
Gov. Pataki caved in almost immediately. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg caved in shortly afterward. The Satmar Hasidim's bloc votes and Agudah Israel of America's intensive lobbying kept Rabbi Fischer in business, endangering more Judaic kids.
Zwiebel, Berman, the 'gedolim," Niederman, the Satmar Rebbes and the CRC (Williamsburg) rabbis all have blood on their hands. And every one of them should be indicted, put on trial, convicted and jailed. And so should Pataki and Bloomberg.
It sounds harsh.
But Judaic children have been sickened and maimed and Judaic children have died because of what these men did.
It's long past time for the US Department of Justice to protect the civil rights of Orthodox Judaic children by prosecuting the rabbis and politicians who are abusing them by means of Judaism's Talmudic rite of circumcision.

Homosexual molestation of circumcised Judaic boys continues

The information in this column is made possible by donations from readers and the sale of our books, newsletters and recordings.

Michael Hoffman's Note: Here is a rare glimpse into the terrible hidden truth of what the religion of Orthodox Judaism actually represents beneath its polished public image: two-thirds of newborn boys in New York City’s Orthodox Judaic communities are molested by a "mohel" as he performs fellatio ("metzitzah b’peh," i.e. "oral suction") on their private parts during the bris milah (circumcision) rite.

Rabbi David Niederman of the United Jewish Organization in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, claims that metzitzah b’peh has been practiced for "5,000 years." While this may be true of various heathen cults and pagan religions of old that engaged in ceremonial perversion as part of their rites of magica sexualis, it is a blasphemous lie with regard to the laws and statutes of Yahweh, the God of Israel. The God of Israel in His Holy Writ does not sanction the homosexual molestation of infant boys!

Thus under Orthodox Judaism, but not the Bible, one of the first experiences a Judaic male baby undergoes in his life is submitting to fellatio. Judaism is an anti-Biblical religion which defames and degrades the Holy Name of God by the loathsome practices it falsely ascribes to Him. It is the Pharisaic traditions of the man-made Torah SheBeal Peh (Oral Law), as committed to writing in the Mishnah (Shabbath 19:2) and the Gemara (Shabbat 133b) of the Babylonian Talmud and successive halachic texts, which are guilty of being the source of this profoundly pathological and demonic perversion inflicted on helpless Judaic infant boys, and which is perfectly legal throughout the United States, to our nation's shame and disgrace. 

How can anyone say they oppose the molestation of children and permit the ritual molestation of Judaic babies as one of the first experiences of their lives? Could anything be more “anti-semitic” than the legalization of metzitzah b’peh

On June 12, 2006, after massive lobbying in favor of this circumcision-fellatio, including by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the New York State Department of Health, led by Roman Catholic Commissioner Antonia Novello, reaffirmed the legality of the molestation. For further information, cf. Judaism Discovered, pp. 678-683, and Foreskin Man

Michael Hoffman is America’s foremost campaigner for the truth about Judaism and the Talmud. He is the author of Judaism’s Strange Gods and Judaism Discovered.


BASIC INFORMATION

What is metzitzah b’peh?
It is the act of sucking the blood from the circumcised penis of the infant child by direct oral contact.

How do Judaic children get ill and die from this type of circumcision? 
Since the Judaic infant's penis has just been cut, the wound can be infected with whatever germs are present in the mouth of the mohel (rabbinic circumciser). Nowadays, the main culprit is herpes, as documented by the New York City Health Commissioner. In the 19th century it was syphilis and in the 20th century there were cases of tuberculosis and diphtheria; there have certainly been other fatal illnesses transmitted as well.

Is metzitzah b’peh a commandment in the Bible or the Talmud?
It is only a commandment of the Babylonian Talmud, Shabbat 133b.

Rav Papa said: “Any professional [mohel] that does not suck out [the blood] – this is dangerous and he should be removed from his position.”


In the Talmud’s analysis, the fact that metzitzah b’peh is a part of the post-circumcision medical intervention is an axiom.

Baby’s Death Renews Debate Over a Circumcision Ritual
By Liz Robbins | New York Times | March 8, 2012, page A-26 

Prosecutors are investigating the death of a newborn boy who died in September after contracting herpes through a controversial practice of ritual circumcision, reviving a debate in New York over safety and religious freedom. The Brooklyn district attorney, Charles J. Hynes, confirmed on Wednesday that the investigation was continuing, but declined to comment further.

The cause of death of the 2-week-old boy, who died at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn on Sept. 28, was Type 1 herpes, caused by “ritual circumcision with oral suction,” according to the medical examiner’s office.

The ritual of oral suction — or in Hebrew, metzitzah b’peh — is practiced almost exclusively in ultra-orthodox communities and, to a lesser degree, in Orthodox Jewish communities, despite efforts by the city to curtail it and educate communities about its health risks. The procedure occurs during the circumcision ritual of the bris, as the practitioner, or mohel, removes the foreskin of the penis and then sucks the blood from the wound to clean it.

In 2003 and 2004, the city reported three cases of Type 1 herpes that were linked to circumcision, involving a boy on Staten Island and twin boys in Brooklyn, one of whom died. The procedures were done by one mohel, Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer, who was later prohibited from performing the ritual in New York City.

The authorities have not determined the identity of the mohel in the most recent case, but since the death they have been trying to work with the Hasidic community. In 2004, after the death of the twin, the Brooklyn district attorney tried to investigate but received little cooperation within the community, according to a person with knowledge of the case who spoke on the condition of anonymity because it was not brought to trial.

It was not believed that Rabbi Fischer was under investigation for the latest case, and he did not return a phone call seeking comment. His lawyer from the 2004 investigation, Mark J. Kurzmann, said he would not comment.

Roughly two-thirds of newborn boys in the city’s Orthodox communities are circumcised with metzitzah b’peh, said Rabbi David Zwiebel, the executive vice president of Agudath Israel of America, who said he was using a calculation based on religious school enrollment figures.

He said that the mohels in the Hasidic community were cognizant of hygiene and that there were things they could do to reduce the risk of herpes without ending the practice. “We’re not oblivious to what’s going on,” Rabbi Zwiebel said.

“The worst thing that could happen is if the authorities regulate this practice, then it could go underground,” he said. “I think the practice would continue, but there could be significant difficulty in gathering evidence. I would hope that our government officials take steps in conjunction with the community.”

In 2005, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg assembled rabbis throughout the city to try to persuade them to move away from metzitzah b’peh. But they said that the practice was safe and that there was no definitive evidence that it caused herpes. “The Orthodox Jewish community will continue the practice that has been practiced for over 5,000 years,” Rabbi David Niederman of the United Jewish Organization in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, said at the time. “‘We do not change. And we will not change.”

But in the Bronx on Tuesday, the mayor talked about the medical examiner’s findings in the most recent death, which was also investigated by the health department. “There is probably nobody in public life who fights harder for the separation of church and state than I do, but I just wanted to remind everybody: religious liberty does not simply extend to injuring others or putting children at risk,” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And we will continue working with the community and others to prevent more baby boys from suffering these tragic fates.”

Purim 2012: Kill the “Anti-Semites”

By Michael Hoffman
On Purim 1994 Brooklyn-born Israeli settler Baruch Goldstein slaughtered 40 Palestinians while they prayed in Hebron.
On Purim 2003 the U.S. invaded the sovereign nation of Iraq, officially to eliminate illicit weapons of mass destruction but in reality to neutralize a possible Iraqi threat to the Israeli government. Nearly 5,000 dead Americans and a trillion dollars later and Iraq has been totally neutered, just as the Israelis and their American agents had hoped, notwithstanding the damage to the US economy and our service men and women.
In the run-up to Purim 2012, which begins on Wednesday evening March 7, Senator John McCain has called for a deficit-ridden America to undertake a multi-million dollar bombing of Syria, while Senator Joseph Lieberman, speaking at the Israeli lobby’s AIPAC conference, demanded a U.S. attack on Iran if the government of that Persian nation will not stop its non-existent nuclear weapons program. The German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel observed that the only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.
Ancient Race War Revived
J.D. Longstreet on the website of the “Save America Foundation: Patriots in Action” states: “Before Iran was renamed Iran it was Persia. The rift between the Jews and the Persians is not new. It goes back many centuries...It is impossible to read the book of Esther this week, especially, and not see the parallels between an ancient Jew approaching a great potentate asking for help to save the lives of the Jewish people. One can only hope Obama reacts as did King Ahasuerus and that Obama and Netanyahu can both enjoy a few of those famous “Haman’s Ear” cookies in celebration of the special occasion when the Jews were saved and Haman, the evil prime minister of Persia, did not succeed in his plot to kill all the Jews..." 
On Sunday March 4 Herb Keinon wrote in the Jerusalem Post: “Netanyahu...will meet with US President Barack Obama on Monday to discuss how to stop a Persian tyrant interested in killing Jews. The meeting is just two days before Purim, a holiday retelling a similar tale, involving a Persian tyrant intent on killing Jews thousands of years earlier. Do not be surprised if Netanyahu somehow connects those two dots during public comments he will make in Washington.”
Why are we not surprised that, according to Israel National News, during the three hours that President Barack Obama spent with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the White House on March 5, “Netanyahu took the opportunity to draw a parallel between the narrative in the Book of Esther – wherein the wicked Haman seeks to destroy the Jewish people throughout the Persian Empire – with Israel's modern day conflict with Iran...Iran is geographically Persia and the Iranians are descendants of the ancient Persians.”
A race war thousands of years old is invoked in deliberations of the President of the United States concerning our nation’s war policy. The modern nation of Iran is identified with the ancient nation of Persia by the Israeli Prime Minister and his supporters in the Zionist press and American “patriot” right wing. The high Persian official Haman is likened unto the officials of present day Iran. This would be little more than Grade B schlock movie fare were it not invested with international gravitas before our very eyes. The ancient racial stereotyping against which the rabbis and the media howl when applied to “the Jews,” is freely applied to the Iranians in the name of Israeli national survival and self-defense.
This contemporary racial targeting becomes more ominous when we consider that Haman was identified as part of the nation of Amalek which God ordered annihilated. In Christian teaching, the nation of Amalek is no longer mentioned. This belief is in accordance with the Bible at Deuteronomy 25:17-19 “to blot out the memory of Amalek from under Heaven.” Since Amalek is gone from the face of the earth and Bible-believers are to blot out his memory, those who keep the memory alive are in violation of God’s prophetic will. This defiance emanates from the Babylonian Talmud, which envisions an on-going war with Amalekites who are defined by 21st century rabbis as the anti-semites among us, meaning anyone who thwarts Zionism or Judaism.
In addition to the grave threat of extermination that this warped belief presents to the dehumanized people of Iran, it is also a warrant for the murder of all the opponents of Talmudic Judaism and the apartheid “State of Israel” who are classed as “anti-Semites,” whether or not they are Iranian.
“Amalek was the first anti-Semite”
Rabbi Eliezer Melamed is a leader of the violence-prone Israeli settler movement and the head of Yeshivat Har Bracha in the occupied West Bank of Palestine. He is esteemed as an authority on rabbinic law. His major works include his legal treatise, Pininei Halacha. Melamed uses his weekly column in the Israeli newspaper Basheva to advocate attacks (“vengeance”) on Palestinians by the Israeli government and the military: "We don't aspire to private vengeance, but to state vengeance led by the Israel Defense Forces and all the systems of government." (Cf. Haaretz, March 18, 2011).
Rabbi Melamed has declared that those who worship Jesus Christ are idolaters: "...they (Christians) still embrace idolatry, believing that ‘oto ha’ish’ [Jesus] is god and the messiah, who will be resurrected to redeem the world... This delusion that Jesus is the mashiach (messiah) is indeed a false belief. As we learned from the words of the Rambam (Moses Maimonides, Laws of Kings 11:4): ‘Jesus the Christian, who thought he was the Messiah… was the subject of a prophesy in the Book of Daniel (11:14): ‘…also the renegades of your people will exalt themselves to fulfill the vision – but they will stumble.’ Could there be a greater stumbling block than this [Jesus]?” (Emphasis supplied).
For Purim 2012, Rabbi Melamed has made the following declaration: 
“Although the main mitzvah of wiping-out Amalek rests upon the community in general, every individual Jew is also obligated to fulfill this mitzvah. Therefore, if one comes upon an Amalekite and has chance to kill him, but does not – he has annulled this mitzvah (Sefer HaChinuch, 604). Amalek was the first anti-Semite...Today, the seed of Amalek has been lost; however, if (it) becomes clear that a certain person is an Amalekite, following in their ways, it would be a mitzvah (blessed deed) to kill him (see Kol Mevaser 2:42)...Only after evil is eradicated from the world can there be complete joy. Thus on Purim, after the obliteration of Haman and his sons, happiness is especially great.” Cf. Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, "Amalek: War Against the Root of Evil," Israel National News, Feb. 28, 2012 (emphasis supplied). 
Rabbi Melamed then creates an escape clause in case some people might be horrified at the notion of killing anyone labeled an “anti-Semite”: “...if an Amalekite decides to take upon himself the fulfillment of the Seven Mitzvoth of Noah's Sons, according to Jewish law, there is no longer an obligation to kill him...” 

The “Seven Mitzvoth of Noah's Sons, according to Jewish law” (i.e. Talmudic law and successive halachos derived from it), decree death for idolaters. In Judaism worship of Jesus Christ is defined as avodah zorah (idol worship). "Anti-semitic" Amalekites and those who worship Jesus are subject to death. They can only escape capital punishment by accepting the Seven Mitzvoth of Noah's Sons and denying that Jesus is God. This is what it means to “take upon” the “Seven Mitzvoth of Noah's Sons” (Noachide Laws): the messiah status and divinity of Jesus Christ must be denied. The U.S. Congress is on record (Public Law 102-14) recommending the enactment of these misnamed “Noah” laws (in Orthodox Judaism the patriarch Noah is derided as a low character; cf. Judaism's Strange Gods [2011] p. 108). 

Purim Bacchanal: Judeo-Dionysiac debauchery
Like other pagan religions based on concepts derived from the ancient worship of strange gods which Yahweh abominates (Exodus 20:2-3), the pagan anti-Yahweh religion of Judaism venerates the god Dionysus in his incarnation as Bacchus, during the drunken Bacchanal conducted during Purim, when intoxicated Judaic men dress up as women, Arab terrorists (complete with mock suicide bomb belts), clowns and various animals.
Dionysius’ most common cult name in Greek was Bakch(e)ios; in Latin Bacchus, from which is derived the name of a drunken revel, the “Bacchanal.” The rites of Dionysus feature wearing masks, cross-dressing, impersonation and illusion. Walk the streets of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem or the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York during Purim and you will observe these rites being enacted. Dionysiac festivals in ancient times were accompanied by public drunkenness. Alcoholic intoxication is condemned by the Bible in Proverbs 20:1; 23:20; Romans 13:13; Ephesians 5:18; I Cor. 6: 9-10. Everyone from Rick Santorum to Patrick J. Buchanan refers to the civilization that originally gave rise to Europe and the United States of America as “Judeo-Christian.” They apply this term out of blatant disregard for the fact that Purim, one of the religion of Judaism’s holiest days, commands alcoholic intoxication and is marked by masquerading and cross-dressing. 

In the Babylonian Talmud (BT) we read:
Rava said: One must become so intoxicated on Purim that he cannot distinguish between “Cursed is Haman” and “Blessed is Mordechai.” Rabbah and Rav Zeira celebrated the Purim feast together. They became intoxicated. Rabbah arose and slaughtered Rav Zeira. The next day, Rabbah prayed for mercy on Rav Zeira’s behalf and revived him. The following year, Rabbah said, “Let master come, and we will celebrate the Purim feast together.” Rav Zeira answered, “Not every time does a miracle occur.” (BT Megillah 7b).
In the preceding Talmudic account, a great "sage" of the Gemara declares that Judaics must get blind drunk on Purim. Another "sage" obeys and becomes so intoxicated that he slaughters another rabbi, and yet the killer merits having his resurrection wish agreed to by God: the rabbi who was killed by the drunk comes back from the dead. What part of this Judeo-Dionysiac debauchery and nonsense rightfully comprises a hyphenated partnership with Christians as represented by the term “Judeo-Christian”? (2 Cor. 6:14).
The “positive” side of Purim drunkenness: “Basic happiness is revealed”
“Although in general drunkenness is disgraceful, nevertheless, its positive sides cannot be ignored. As a consequence of intoxication, basic happiness is revealed, expressing physical, unrestrained joy, filled with power and vitality. Normally, however, the lust and depravity of drunkenness obscures its positive side, and as a result, it causes wildness and numerous obstacles. But on Purim, when we drink and take joy in the salvation of Hashem, remembering the miracle that was done by means of the feast, the positive sides of drinking are revealed.” --Rabbi Eliezer Melamed (Israel National News, March 3, 2012).
Alexander Hislop penned a best-selling book, The Two Babylons, which is a staple volume in some Protestant households. It is full of quotes and illustrations purporting to show that Roman Catholicism is allegedly a religion imbued with paganism. Most of these same Catholic-despising Protestant households are stubbornly yoked to one degree or another with the Talmud of Babylon and its rabbis, and will not acknowledge or seriously consider books that document that Judaism is a Babylonian belief system which uses the Bible only as a cover for its heathen madness and occult delusions.
As in 2003 under the administration of Republican President George W. Bush, in 2012 under the administration of Democrat President Barack Obama, pagan Purim continues to set the agenda for our nation’s foreign policy.

Obama, the "Denier" of Israeli Crimes

His Sunday speech to the Israeli Lobby, three days before Purim:

Obama, the "Denier" of Israel's Crimes

By Ann Wright (US Army - Ret.)

Palestine, (Pal Telegraph, March 5) - I listened to President Obama's speech to AIPAC Sunday, March 4, 2012, while sitting outside the Washington Convention Center where AIPAC was holding its annual conference. We at OCCUPY AIPAC hooked up a PA system to a computer and listened to the live stream while watching tens of thousands of Israel's American supporters arrive for their yearly intimidation of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. President to fund and protect Israel.

Much of the focus for others writing about the President's pandering speech to AIPAC will be about the Iran nuclear program and, if weaponized, the threat to Israeli and U.S. security, in that order. I will leave the Iran nuclear program to them while I will write about a part of his speech that pertains to a part of the world that I know personally.

But one last comment about Iran -- Obama said the Iranian government denies the Holocaust.

I would say that the Iranian government is not the only "denier."

President Obama and his advisers are the "deniers" of incredible Israeli violence and horrific violations of international law.

In his speech, Obama said, "When the Goldstone report unfairly singled out Israel for criticism (after Israel attacked Gaza), we challenged it."

Having been to Gaza within days after the 22-day Israeli attack on Gaza that killed 1,440, wounded 5,000 and left 50,000 homeless (13 Israelis were killed -- five of them by Israeli fire), I know the Goldstone Report is accurate in its recording of endless Israeli attacks on Gaza by air, land and sea. President Obama must not know that the Goldstone report comments on the actions of all parties, not just the Israelis. How would Obama know whether the report is accurate or not, when not one Obama administration officer has visited Gaza to observe the destruction first-hand, nor have they asked any of the American citizens who have traveled to Gaza for their observations.

In another event concerning Gaza, Obama recounted, "When Israel was isolated in the aftermath of the flotilla incident, we supported them." I was a passenger on one of the six ships in the 2010 Gaza Freedom Flotilla. I know personally that Israeli commandos brutally attacked all six ships in the flotilla. On the Mavi Marmara commandos executed nine passengers and wounded 50 more.

There were only civilians on the ships and there were no weapons on the ships. Israeli commandos murdered an American citizen, shooting him five times. Despite the repeated requests of the family of the U.S. citizen, 19 year old Furkan Dogan, the Obama administration decided it did not need to conduct its own investigation but would rely on the Israeli government investigating itself. Israel was isolated by the world after its criminal behavior against the Gaza flotilla -- and for good reason! I will add that the Obama administration did not contact any of the American citizens on the flotilla to ask for their comments on the Israeli attack other than a brief consular visit in the Israeli prison where we were held.

Obama said the U.S. protects Israel from "one-sided resolutions" in the United Nations Human Rights Council, yet the U.S. and Israel stand virtually alone as the rest of the nations of the world see clearly Israel's outrageous actions that are condemned by the Human Rights Council.

Obama stated the United States stands against divestment and boycott of Israeli goods, yet as boycott, divestment and sanctions actions by citizens demanding that organizations look at human rights records of companies in which they have invested, despite what Obama says, Israel is beginning to feel the pinch as citizen "sanctions" on Israeli companies that steal resources from Palestinian lands are implemented.

Finally, Obama said that the U.S. opposes those who "delegitimize" Israel. Yet it is the State of Israel that, by its illegal actions against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, delegitimizes itself -- Israel does not need anyone to help in delegitimization.

Obama ended that section of his speech with "when the chips are down, I have Israel's back," no doubt hoping that AIPAC supporters will contribute substantially to his re-election campaign because of his perpetual "denial" of the criminal actions of the state of Israel -- a "denial" dangerous for the national security of both the United States and the State of Israel.

Purim war fever propaganda barrage on the horizon


_______________________________________________________________

ISRAELI  LOBBY WAR FEVER PROPAGANDA BARRAGE TIMED TO PRECEDE PURIM

Purim, the Talmudic festival of revenge on the gentiles, begins at sundown on Wednesday, March 7th. 

President Barack Obama will host a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, March 5. 

Israeli-First AIPAC's national policy conference featuring a star-studded cast of American politicians including the President, starts March 4 and runs through March 6. 

George W. Bush invaded Iraq on Purim, 2003. 



FROM TODAY'S MARCH 1, 2012 EDITION OF THE NEW YORK TIMES:

"Israel's Last Chance to Strike Iran"
By Amos Yadlin

 "America could carry out an extensive air campaign using stealth technology and huge amounts of ammunition, dropping enormous payloads that are capable of hitting targets and penetrating to depths far beyond what Israel's arsenal can achieve...On Monday, Mr. Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel are to meet in Washington. Of all their encounters, this could be the most critical...What is needed is an ironclad American assurance that if Israel refrains from acting in its own window of opportunity and all other options have failed to halt Iran's nuclear quest, Washington will act to prevent a nuclear Iran while it is still in its power to do so."

--Amos Yadlin, "Israel's Last Chance to Strike Iran," New York Times, p. A31, March 1, 2012 (published six days before Purim; Netanyahu meets Obama two days before Purim). 

Michael Hoffman's Analysis: Mr. Yadlin is the former Chief of Israeli Military Intelligence and currently serves as the Director of the Israeli Institute for National Security Studies. The headline of Yadlin's Op-Ed conforms to Orwellian U.S. media practice by substituting the euphemism "strike" for the word bomb in any headline or article. This is a nearly universally enforced editorial practice. One must never write of "Israel's last chance to bomb Iran." Evil Arabs, Persians and Muslims bomb. Noble Zionists, Judaics and their American lackeys don't bomb, they only strike. The media's nationwide conformity to this weasel-word substitution tells us all we need to know about the sub-rosa control exerted over the American press.

Yadlin's article amounts to extortion. If the U.S. doesn't bomb ("strike") Iran soon, he argues, then the Israelis will be forced to do so. The immense cost to U.S. taxpayers of any massive American bombing campaign is not an issue. It is not raised at Republican presidential candidate forums organized by Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich (Romney seldom participates in spontaneous question and answer forums; Ron Paul is for peace).

Yadlin and his fellow Zionists obviously consider U.S. taxpayers as little more than peasants automatically obligated to fund the wars of their Zionist kings. 

We invaded and fought in Iraq for a Zionist agenda. Iraq was not, as the Left obtusely claimed, a "war for oil." Iraq today is a basket case that won't pose a "threat" to the Israeli apartheid state for another ten or fifteen years; that was the whole point of the American invasion of Iraq on Purim, 2003. Now the brazen demands are coming from Jerusalem again, on the eve of Purim, 2012, and America's army of golem are preparing to march. Nothing changes, does it?

This recurring nightmare confirms our abject servitude to a racist, colonizing foreign power, a national tragedy this is not even a blip on the radar screen of the Tea Party or the other claimants to the mantles of fiscal conservatism and Constitutional rectitude, most of whom believe that Iran is about to nuke Jerusalem at any moment, even though, according to the front page of the Feb. 25 edition of the New York Times: "American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb."

Or do we wallow in apathy and inaction? The hour is late. Racist Talmudism rules America through Churchianity, the media,  the Federal government, and powerful institutions such as the highly influential Cardozo School of Law, an affiliate of a Talmudic yeshiva --where future elite lawyers and judges are trained in rabbinic halacha. Let us go forward with Judaism's Strange Gods,  and with God's help, engage in the war of ideas in accordance with His will. If Judaism's Strange Gods is not the best tool in this fight, please tell us what is. If, however, it is indeed the most effective book for educating the public concerning the toxic Talmudic Trojan horse in our midst which daily grows more powerful, to what degree have you utilized it? If not, why not?
