The Jewish Religion – Part II
by Der Stürmer
„The sources of our knowledge of the kabalistic doctrines are the books of Yetzirah and Zohar, the former drawn up in the second century, and the latter a little later; but they contain materials much older than themselves… In them, as in the teachings of Zoroaster, everything that exists emanates from a source of infinite Light.“ (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma).
„Alexandria, newly built, was colonized by the Jews, who came in crowds to people the new town. The result was a mixture of men of different nations and religions, who gave rise to several philosophical and religious associations. Platonism was publicly taught by the Greeks in Alexandria, it was eagerly received by the Alexandrian Jews, who communicated it to the Jews of Judea and Palestine…In Egypt and Judea, before the commencement of Christianity the philosophy of Pythagoras and Plato had thrust deep roots among the Jews, which gave rise to the dogmas of the Essenes, Therapeuts, Sadducees, Carpocratians, Cabalistic-Gnostics, Basilideans, and Manichaeans; all these dogmatists adapted part of the doctrine of the Egyptian Magi and Priests of the above philosophy. They spread in time into Asia, Africa, and Europe. These different Jews preserved the mysteries of the Temple of Solomon with the allegory of the Grand Architect, who was the Jewish Messiah, an idea still preserved by the Jew today.“ (Reghellini de Schio, in 1833)
„Judaism: Judaism denotes the Jewish faith in its extravagant form of blind attachment to rites and traditions, and national exclusiveness. This must have been prevalent in the time of Christ, because of His constant exposure of their formalism and self-assumption, and because in John’s Gospel ‘the Jews’ is used as synonymous with opposers of Christ and His teachings.“ (The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia, Vol. II, (1901), p. 999).
„Judaism was not a religion but a law.“ (Moses Mendeissohn, The Jewish Plato)
„When only Jews are present we admit that Satan is our god.“ (Harold Rosenthal, former administrative aide to Sen. Jacob Javits, in a recorded interview)
„It is the Jew who lies when he swears allegiance to another faith; who becomes a danger to the world.“ (Rabbi Stephen Wise, New York Tribune, March 2, 1920).
„The principal characteristic of the Jewish religion consists in its being alien to the Hereafter, a religion, as it were, solely and essentially worldly. (Werner Sombart, Les Juifs et la vie économique, p. 291).
„Man can only experience good or evil in this world; if God wishes to punish or reward he can only do so during the life of man. it is therefore here below that the just must prosper and the impious suffer.“ (Kadmi Kohen: Nomades, F. Alcan, Paris, 1929 p. 277; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon De Poncins, p. 164)
„To his unsociability the Jew added exclusiveness. Without the Law, without Judaism to practice it, the world would not exist, God would make it return again into a state of nothing; and the world will not know happiness until it is subjected to the universal empire of that [Jewish] law, that is to say, to the Empire of the Jews. In consequence the Jewish people is the people chosen by God as the trustee of his wishes and desires; it is the only one with which the Divinity has made a pact, it is the elected of the Lord…This faith in their predestination, in their election, developed in the Jews an immense pride; They come to look upon non-Jews with contempt and often with hatred, when patriotic reasons were added to theological ones.“ (B. Lazare, L’Antisémitisme, pp. 8-9; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon De Poncins, 184-185)
„Judaism presents a unique phenomenon in the annals of the world, of an indissoluble alliance, of an intimate alloy, of a close combination of the religious and national principles…
There is not only an ethical difference between Judaism and all other contemporary religions, but also a difference in kind and nature, a fundamental contradiction. We are not face to face with a national religion but with a religious nationality.“ (G. Batault, Le problème juif, pp. 65-66; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon de Poncins, 197)
„The idea of God, the image of God, such as it is reflected in the Bible, goes through three distinct phases. The first stage is the Higher Being, thirsty for blood, jealous, terrible, war-like. The intercourse between the Hebrew and his God is that of an inferior with s superior whom he fears and seeks to appease.
The second phase the conditions are becoming more equal. The pact concluded between God and Abraham develops its consequences, and the intercourse becomes, so to speak, according to stipulation. In the Talmudic Hagada, the Patriarchs engage in controversies and judicial arguments with the Lord. The Tora and the Bible enter into these debate and their intervention is preponderant. God pleading against Israel sometimes loses the lawsuit. The equality of the contracting parties is asserted. Finally the third phase the subjectively divine character of God is lost. God becomes a kind of fictitious Being. These very legends, one of which we have just quoted, for those who know the keen minds of the authors, give the impression, that they, like their readers, of their listeners, look upon God in the manner of a fictitious being and divinity, at heart, from the angle of a personification, of a symbol of the race [This religion has a code: The Talmud].“ (Kadmi Cohen, Nomades, p. 138; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon de Poncins, 197-198)
