Jewish Ritual Murder Was Seen as Ancient Hebrew Sorcery

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/jewish-ritual-murder-was-seen-as-ancient-hebrew-sorcery/

Renegade Editor’s Note: This was written by someone who did not see any validity to the accusations.

By Joshua Trachtenberg
From Jewish Magic and Superstition [1939]

Of all the charges against the Jewish people the one that has enjoyed the hardiest tenacity and the utmost notoriety, and has produced the direst consequences, is the ritual murder accusation. In its popular version it foists upon Jewish ritual the requirement of Christian blood at the Passover service. The subject of much study and infinitely more polemics, its absurdity has been conclusively established, but the true nature of the accusation has never been made sufficiently clear. The legend as we know it has experienced several redactions. In its pristine form it was the product of ancient superstition – and of the idea of the Jew as sorcerer.

One of the most pervasive beliefs was in the great utility for medicinal and magical purposes of the elements of the human body. Medieval magic is full of recipes for putting to occult use human fat, human blood, entrails, hands, fingers; medieval medicine utilized as one of its chief medicaments the blood of man, preferably blood that had been freshly drawn, or menstrual blood. The ritual murder accusation was the result of these beliefs.

There is on record at least one accusation against a Jew, dating from the thirteenth century, of despoiling a servant girl, whom he was said to have drugged, of some flesh which he intended to put to a magical or medicinal use. This was the motive which was believed to have prompted many assumed ritual murders. One of the first medieval references to this accusation, made by Thomas of Cantimpré early in that century, attributed the need for Christian blood to the widespread Jewish affliction of haemorrhages (some later accounts changed the malady to haemorrhoids), which could be cured only by the application of this blood. The Jews of Fulda (Hesse-Nassau), accused in 1235 of murdering five children, are said to have confessed that they did so in order to procure their blood for purposes of healing. Matthew Paris’s contemporary account of the alleged crucifixion of Hugh of Lincoln by Jews in 1255 ascribed to them the intention of using the boy’s bowels for divination. To skip a century and a half, in May, 1401, the city council of Freiburg (in Breisgau) wrote to Duke Leopold requesting the total expulsion of the Jews from their city, the foremost count against them being that they periodically slaughtered a Christian child, for “all Jews require Christian blood for the prolongation of their lives.” The only Christian statement on the ritual murder charge against the Jews of Tyrnau in 1494 explains their need of this blood on several grounds: “Firstly: they [the Jews] were convinced by the judgment of their ancestors that the blood of a Christian was a good remedy for the alleviation of the wound of circumcision. Secondly: they were of the opinion that this blood, put into food, is very efficacious for the awakening of mutual love. Thirdly: they had discovered, as men and women among them suffered equally from menstruation, that the blood of a Christian is a specific medicine for it, when drunk. Fourthly: that they had an ancient but secret ordinance by which they are under obligation to shed Christian blood in honour of God in daily sacrifices in some spot or other.” As late as the beginning of the eighteenth century it is reported that in Poland and Germany tales were told and songs sung in the streets “how the Jews have murdered a child, and sent the blood to one another in quills for the use of their women in childbirth.”

It is evident from these instances that the suspicion of magic was behind the accusation of child murder. There is no mention of the Passover, of kneading the blood into the unleavened cakes, or drinking it at the Seder service, all of which are late refinements. The records of the early accusations are meaningless unless viewed against the background of medieval superstition. A modern writer who has made a careful study of Christian magic and witchcraft, and who proves himself as credulous and superstition-ridden as the period he examines, expresses exactly the medieval view, which is his as well: Jews were persecuted “not so much for the observance of Hebrew ceremonies, as is often suggested and supposed, but for the practice of the dark and hideous traditions of Hebrew magic. Closely connected with these ancient sorceries are those ritual murders… In many cases the evidence is quite conclusive that the body, and especially the blood of the victim, was used for magical purposes.”

Israeli Sanhedrin Reestablishes the Practice of Blood Sacrifice to Yahweh

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/israeli-sanhedrin-reestablishes-the-practice-of-blood-sacrifice-to-yahweh/

On 26 September 2019 the barbaric practice of animal sacrifice to the Abrahamic god of the Jews, Christians and Islamists was reestablished. This was at the behest of the Jewish reconstituted Sanhedrin.

As quoted from a page in the He Is Near Christard site:

The Sanhedrin of 2000 years ago were the respected select group of Israel’s Chief Rabbis & Chief priests who were the ultimate authority in deciding the Jewish laws/customs of their eras. After the destruction of the 2nd temple in 70 AD their virtual existence was later made illegal in 425 AD.

But, in January 2005 after almost 1600 years of non-existence, the Sanhedrin suddenly reconvened as a thriving body of top known Rabbis in Israel. Their purpose and focus is still the same as 2000 years ago. Namely, to be the ruling & overseeing body in all legal matters & customs regarding the coming construction of the 3rd Temple, re-instituting of Old Testament priestly and animal sacrifice laws, and the Council for all Jewish religious dealings.

All of this is in exact timing with all other Final End Times prophecies PRECISELY LINED UP TODAY like the nearing ‘start’ of the final 7 year Tribulation period, key preparations to build the 3rd Temple, ALL pointing to the nearness of the Return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In a 2 September 2019 Breaking Israel News article by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz comes the following quote:

On September 25, the 5,780th anniversary of the day on which Jewish tradition holds the world was created, the Sanhedrin is holding a conference for the Organization of 70 Nations. The conference will culminate in an animal sacrifice made by representatives of the nations on the Mount of Olives in which they will renew the covenant made by Noah upon leaving the Ark…The conference will begin on Wednesday evening, September 25, the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Elul at the Jerusalem Gate Hotel and continue until Friday, September 27. Lectures and discussions will focus on the Noahide obligations incumbent upon all mankind. Also discussed will be the universal economic, cultural, educational that should be the focus of such an organization. A major focus will also be the establishment of an international court based on Bible principles.

You can go to this link on Breaking Israel News that covers the ritual sacrifice. They have since taken down the video showing the actual slaughter of a small lamb. It was quite gruesome with the butcher cradling the lamb in his arms and sawing its neck open with a ritual blade, all the while the creature was struggling and writhing in agony. The blood from the gaping neck was then drained into a tub and the carcass placed on a small wooden pyre and burned. The Jews themselves through their twisted religious beliefs could not perform the sacrifice themselves and had to have a non-Jew perform the actual killing and burning of the animal.

Here are a couple of quotes from the article:

You can’t go through something like this and be apathetic. Everybody walked out of this ceremony totally transformed and totally intent on serving God to the best of their ability” said an emotional Berkowitz, calling it an Abrahamic moment.

Malachi (the person who performed the slaughter) added: “I knew I was going to do this before I came to Israel. ‘He’ (God) gave me the strength to do this today. Every one of these stones that fit together is unique. He’s bringing his stones now to build the Temple and it’s us. It’s us together.”

All those who attended appeared to be quite pleased with themselves and, if their blood-thirsty god Yahweh was in attendance, I’m sure it found the smoke from the pyre to be a “pleasing odor” also.

Jew Jeff Epstein Arrested for Child Sex Trafficking

Source: https://infostormer.com/jew-jeff-epstein-arrested-for-child-sex-trafficking/

The Jew Jeff Epstein was just arrested for his role in sex trafficking underage girls.

CBS:

Investment manager Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in New York Saturday on federal charges related to sex trafficking, CBS News has confirmed. The financier has long been accused of sexually abusing underage girls, and in 2007, he pleaded guilty to two prostitution counts in a Florida court as part of a controversial deal to avoid federal charges.

Epstein is expected to appear in a New York federal court on Monday, but the situation is fluid. The news of Epstein’s arrest was first reported by The Daily Beast.

Epstein is a wealthy hedge fund manager who once counted as friends former President Bill Clinton, Great Britain’s Prince Andrew, and President Donald Trump.

This Jew had an island where he invited powerful people to so they could engage in sex with underage girls. Presumably this was all part of an agenda to obtain blackmail material on people so they could be controlled. It explains why he wasn’t originally held accountable for his crimes and was given a plea deal that kept him out of prison.

But the fact that he has now been arrested is interesting. Is this a precursor to all this #Pizzagate sh*t being exposed? It’d be nice to think that, but I’m hardly optimistic that this will happen.

Talmudic Government Moves into Christianized Europe

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/talmudic-government-moves-into-christianized-europe/

By Douglas Reed
From The Controversy of Zion

Then came the event which has produced such violent results in our time: the Talmudic government moved into Christianized Europe and established itself among peoples to whom the nature of its dogma and its methods were strange and even incomprehensible. This led, in the course of many centuries, to the recurrent clash of the alien ambition and creed against native interest, which our century is again experiencing.

The nature of Westerners (more especially in the northern latitudes) is to be candid, to declare purposes, and to use words to express intention, and Christianity developed these native traits.

The force which appeared among them was of the opposite character, oriental, infinitely subtle, secretive, conspiratorial, and practised in the use of language to disguise real purposes. Therein lay its greatest strength in the encounter with the West.

The removal to Europe came about through the Islamic conquests. The Arabs, under the Prophet’s banner, drove the Romans from Palestine. By this means the native inhabitants of Palestine, who had inhabited it some two thousand years before the first Hebrew tribes entered, became the rulers of their own country, and remained so for nine hundred years (until 1517, when the Turks conquered it). An instructive comparison may be made between the Islamic and the Judaic treatment of captives:

The Caliph’s order to the Arab conquerors in 637 AD was,

You shall not act treacherously, dishonestly, commit any excess or mutilation, kill any child or old man; cut or burn down palms or fruit trees, kill any sheep, cow or camel, and shall leave alone those whom you find devoting themselves to worship in their cells”.

Jehovah’s order, according to Deuteronomy 20.16, is,

Of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shall save alive nothing that breatheth”.

From Palestine, Islam then spread its frontiers right across North Africa, so that the great mass of Jews came within the boundaries of the same external authority. Next, Islam turned towards Europe and invaded Spain. Therewith the shadow of Talmudic Zionism fell across the West.

The Moorish conquest was “supported with both men and money” by the Jews, who as camp-followers were treated with remarkable favour by the conquerors, city after city being handed to their control! The Koran itself said,

Their aim will be to abet disorder on the earth”;

the Islamic armies certainly facilitated this aim.

Christianity thus became submerged in Spain. In these propitious circumstances the Talmudic government was transferred from Babylonia to Spain, and the process began, the results of which have become apparent in our generation. Dr. Kastein says:

“Judaism, dispersed as it was over the face of the globe, was always inclined to set up a fictitious state in the place of the one that had been lost, and always aimed, therefore, at looking to a common centre for guidance …

“This centre was now held to be situated in Spain, whither the national hegemony was transferred from the East. Just as Babylonia had providentially taken the place of Palestine, so now Spain opportunely replaced Babylonia, which, as a centre of Judaism, had ceased to be capable of functioning.

“All that could be done there had already been accomplished; it had forged the chains with which the individual could bind himself, to avoid being swallowed up by his environment: the Talmud”.

The reader will observe the description of events: “individuals” do not commonly bind themselves, of choice, with chains forged for them. Anyway, the Jewish captivity was as close as ever, or perhaps had been made closer. That was for the Jews to ponder.

What was to become of vital importance to the West was that the Jewish government was now in Europe. The directing centre and the destructive idea had both entered the West.

The Talmudic government of the nation-within-nations was continued from Spanish soil. The Gaonate issued its directives; the Talmudic academy was established at Cordova; and sometimes, at least, a shadowy Exilarch reigned over Jewry.

This was done under the protection of Islam; the Moors, like Babylon and Persia before, showed remarkable benevolence towards this force in their midst. To the Spaniards the invader came to bear more and more a Jewish countenance and less and less a Moorish one; the Moors had conquered, but the conqueror’s power passed into Jewish hands. The story which the world had earlier seen enacted in Babylon, repeated itself in Spain, and in later centuries was to be re-enacted in every great country of the West.

The Moors remained in Spain for nearly eight hundred years. When the Spanish reconquest, after this long ordeal, was completed in 1492 the Jews, as well as the Moors, were expelled. They had become identified with the invaders’ rule and were cast out when it ended, as they had followed it in.

The “centre” of Talmudic government was then transferred to Poland.

At that point, less than four centuries before our own generation, a significant mystery enters the story of Zion: why was the government set up in Poland? Up to that stage the annals reveal no trace of any large migration of Jews to Poland. The Jews who entered Spain with the Moors came from North Africa and when they left most of them returned thither or went to Egypt, Palestine, Italy, the Greek islands and Turkey. Other colonies had appeared in France, Germany, Holland and England and these were enlarged by the arrival among them of Jews from the Spanish Peninsula.

There is no record that any substantial number of Spanish Jews went to Poland, or that any Jewish mass-migration to Poland had occurred at any earlier time.

Yet in the 1500’s, when the “centre” was set up in Poland, “a Jewish population of millions came into being there “, according to Dr. Kastein. But populations of millions do not suddenly “come into being”.

Dr. Kastein shows himself to be aware that something needs explanation here, and to be reluctant to go into it, for he dismisses the strange thing with the casual remark that the size of this community, of which nothing has previously been heard, “was more due to immigration,apparently from France, Germany and Bohemia, than to any other cause”. He does not explain what other cause he might have in mind and, for a diligent scholar, is on this one occasion strangely content with a random surmise.

But when a Zionist historian thus slurs over something the seeker after knowledge may be fairly sure that the root of the matter may by perseverance be found.

Free Porn to be Blocked in UK

Source: https://infostormer.com/free-porn-to-be-blocked-in-uk/

Internet pornography has become a public health crisis in many Western countries. I support any effort to deal with this massive problem. The United Kingdom has decided that they’re going to require porn sites to get proof of ID before allowing the viewing of pornographic materials.

The Sun:

WATCHING free porn in Britain is about to get a lot trickier thanks to new rules that aim to protect children from online smut.

As early as next month, porn sites will be required to get proof of ID from UK residents before showing any X-rated clips.

That includes free porn sites like PornHub and YouPorn – which attract nearly 2billion visits a month between them worldwide.

They’ll join a number of other sites in using the AgeID system, which requires users to verify their age via an official form of ID such as a driver’s license or passport.

From April, when the new system is expected to launch, randy internet lurkers will be shown a non-pornographic “landing page”, according to AgeID spokesman James Clark.

“When a user first visits a site protected by AgeID, a landing page will appear with a prompt for the user to verify their age before they can access the site,” he told The Metro.

Obviously there will be ways around it by using a VPN and things of that sort, but anything to deter people from watching endless amounts of pornography is a positive. Much of the pornographic garbage that’s uploaded to porn video sharing sites is repulsive and obscene.

And the fact that Jews have historically been the primary promoter of pornography and smut should be enough for all Western countries to support measures to deal with this problem. They obviously want Whites to be masturbating to endless amounts of pornography instead of having sex and reproducing. Flooding us with endless amounts of Internet porn is part of the Jewish program of White genocide.

Even more sick is that countries like the United States have made prostitution totally illegal while fully embracing Internet pornography. They’ve created a situation where we have a hyper sexualized culture but access to actual sex has been made as difficult as possible. It should be the other way around. Prostitution should be legal and pornography should be heavily restricted. We would have a much healthier and saner society if this were to be the reality of things.

Lawsuit Seeks To Expose Epstein’s Child Rape Ring Involving ‘Prominent US Politicians.. World Leaders’

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/lawsuit-seeks-to-expose-epsteins-child-rape-ring-involving-prominent-us-politicians-world-leaders/

By Derrick Broze

The long-awaited trial could potentially reveal more secrets of Epstein’s alleged sex rings, including the possible involvement of high profile politicians, celebrities, and royalty.

A lawsuit against convicted sex offender and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein is scheduled to begin December 4th in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. If the trial is not further delayed or a settlement is not reached the public may learn more details of Epstein’s disturbing pedophile adventures. Epstein is well known for his connections to many powerful businessmen, politicians, and royalty. Some of his friends include Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Bill Clinton, and Donald Trump.

The upcoming trial relates to an ongoing legal battle between Epstein and lawyer Bradley Edwards. In 2008, Edwards successfully sued Epstein on behalf of women who claimed he paid them to massage while he masturbated. All of the women were teenagers at the time.

Court records indicate there may have been up to 40 teenage victims. Despite these disturbing facts, Epstein was offered a non-prosecution agreement which allowed him to plead guilty to the lesser charge of soliciting a minor for prostitution and soliciting prostitution. He was ordered to pay multi-million dollar settlements to victims and sentenced to 18 months in jail, of which he only served 13.

Epstein was allowed to stay in the Palm Beach County Jail in his own private cell where he was allowed to leave the prison six days a week for “work release”. Epstein was forced to register as a sex offender for life, but with his money and his connections he doesn’t seem too bothered. He currently resides on his private island in the Virgin Islands.

Edwards has been working to convince a federal judge to reopen the investigation into Epstein, alleging that more evidence remains to be uncovered. Edwards was one of the lawyers representing the women who brought the original suit against Epstein. Following Epstein’s plea agreement Edwards filed suit against the U.S. government claiming the feds failed to involve the victims in the settlement, an obligation required by the Crime Victims’ Rights Act.

The women behind the suit state they believe Epstein’s connections helped him get his “sweetheart” prison deal. This speculation may be accurate, especially in light of recently released documents which indicate that Epstein may have cut a deal with the FBI.

Earlier this year the FBI released hundreds of new documents onto their online depository, The Vault. Some of the documents related to the case against Jeffrey Epstein. One memo from September 18, 2008 states:

“On 9/11/08, case agent advised writer that Epstein is currently being prosecuted by the State of Florida and is complying with all conditions of his plea with the State of Florida. Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon. Case agent advised that no federal prosecution will occur in this matter as long as Epstein continues to uphold his agreement with the State of Florida. … Case agent is requested to contact writer in the event this matter moves forward on a federal level.”

Additionally, in 2015 Politico reported that court documents released through litigation appeared to show prosecutors cooperating with Epstein’s lawyers to keep the deal secret. Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie Villafaña used her personal Gmail account to suggest to one of Epstein’s lawyers that they file legal papers in a different jurisdiction as a way to “hopefully cut the press coverage significantly.”

Villafaña told Epstein’s attorney that she would “include our standard language regarding resolving all criminal liability and I will mention ‘co-conspirators,’ but I would prefer not to highlight for the judge all of the other crimes and all of the other persons that we could charge.”

Edwards and Paul Cassell filed a court document in response to the revelations, stating that “the victims’ allegations of a conspiracy between the Government and Epstein’s attorneys to conceal the existence of a broad non-prosecution agreement are not mere speculation, but appear to be well supported.”

The suspicion of improper deal-making is one of the key reasons these women and Bradley Edwards have fought for this lawsuit for the last ten years. Unfortunately, even if the suit does go forward, Jeffrey Epstein will not be attending.

Palm Beach Daily reports that attorney Jack Scarola will have to read excerpts of Epstein’s sworn statements rather than questioning him directly. Epstein previously invoked his 5th Amendment right not incriminate himself and remained silent. Epstein’s attorney Scott Link said Edwards and Scarola are trying to “show what a horrible person Mr. Epstein was” in hopes that “the jury dislikes Mr. Epstein enough to award Mr. Edwards lots of money in damages.”

Epstein has had a barrage of attorneys fighting for him in an attempt to get the lawsuit dismissed, including Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz who has also been accused of being involved in Epstein’s sexual deviance.

The claims come from an additional alleged victim, known as Jane Doe #3 or Virginia Roberts. In January 2015, it was reported that Roberts and a Jane Doe #4 filed motions in court seeking to be added to the ongoing case fought by Bradley Edwards.

The women’s allegations match that of earlier victims: Epstein worked with women to lure in young girls who would be paid to massage his back and chest while he masturbated and poked the girls with a vibrator. He often groped the young girls while they gave the massages.

However, the claims of Roberts and Jane Doe #4 went further than the previous women. The motion claims that Epstein was running a “sexual abuse ring” where he loaned out underage girls to “prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders”.

The Guardian also reports that Roberts claimed the U.S. government was holding back evidence of her time as a “sex slave” for Epstein. Roberts said the FBI and federal prosecutors are part of a “major cover-up”. Although she has been largely dismissed, both in court and by the media, The Guardian notes that Roberts filed previously undisclosed receipts for a flight from New York to Thailand in September 2002 which was paid for by “J Epstein”.

Virginia Roberts claims by the age of 16 she was forced into a life of sexual servitude. She claims to have been brought into Epstein’s “inner-circle”, flying in his private jet to his ranch in New Mexico, his private island, and his mansion in New York. Roberts said she was sexually exploited and assaulted by “politicians, academicians, businessmen”. Epstein settled the lawsuit out of court by paying Roberts an undisclosed sum. Now Roberts is among the women trying to get Epstein’s non-prosecution agreement overturned.

With all the allegations of Epstein being connected to politicians, businessmen, and royalty it’s important to take a moment to highlight some of the people connected to the convicted sex offender.

In January 2015, The Daily Mail reported it had obtained a copy of Jeffrey Epstein’s address book, which contained the list of all his associates. Following the Daily Mail’s report, Gawker released a copy of the address book. The address book came from Epstein’s former house manager, Alfredo Rodriguez, who was arrested in 2009 after attempting to sell it. Rodriguez would spend 18 months in prison before he died in December. He was never able to speak out publicly about the true importance of the names.

About 50 names were circled by Rodriguez, including Courtney Love and Donald Trump. Other names listed in the address book included Barbara Walters, Alec Baldwin, Sir Richard Branson, actress Elizabeth Hurley, designer Tom Ford, John Cleese, Minnie Driver, Dustin Hoffman, Bobby Kennedy Jr., Senator Edward Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Maria Shriver, Rupert Murdoch, and models Janice Dickinson, Marie Helvin, and Angie Everhart.

Although it is widely reported that both the Clinton’s and Donald Trump have connections to Jeffrey Epstein, the existence of the address book has been ignored. Beyond simply appearing in Epstein’s little black book, Trump was also accused of raping a teenage girl who he met through Epstein.

Katie Johnson, also known as Jane Doe, filed three different lawsuits against Trump in 2016, claiming that she was 13 when she first met Epstein and began participating in sex parties involving older men. Johnson claimed that Trump sexually assaulted her in 1994 at one of Epstein’s parties. She was 13 at the time.

Johnson said she decided to come forward once she realized Trump was running for president. However, in November 2016, Johnson abruptly cancelled a planned press conference in which she was going to reveal her identity and instead withdrew her lawsuit after she said she had received threats on her life. Trump’s attorney claimed there did not exist any corroborative evidence to prove Johnson’s claims.

There is definitely more to this story than what has been released to the public. The evidence points to Epstein using his connections to get out of prison time. He is simply too connected to powerful people to be brought down. And if the allegations are true that Epstein secretly recorded the sex parties he may have plenty of dirt on many of the world’s most powerful people. Hopefully, this December the people of the world will learn the truth and perhaps Epstein’s victims can rest a little easier knowing the truth is out.

The Strange Life of Ilya Ehrenburg

Source: http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v08/v08p507_Weber.html

by Mark Weber

Ilya Ehrenburg, the leading Soviet propagandist of the Second World War, was a contradictory figure. A recent article in the weekly Canadian Jewish News sheds new light on the life of this „man of a thousand masks.“ [1]

Ehrenburg was born in 1891 in Kiev to a non-religious Jewish family. In 1908 he fled Tsarist Russia because of his revolutionary activities. Although he returned to visit after the Bolshevik revolution, he continued to live abroad, including many years in Paris, and did not settle in the Soviet Union until 1941. A prolific writer, Ehrenburg was the author of almost 30 books. The central figure of one novel, The Stormy Life of Lazik Roitschwantz, is a pathetic „luftmensch,“ a recurring character in Jewish literature who seems to live „from the air“ without visible means of support.

As a Jew and a dedicated Communist, Ehrenburg was a relentless enemy of German National Socialism. During the Second World War, he was a leading member of the Soviet-sponsored Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee. (At fund-raising rallies in the United States for the Soviet war effort, two leading members of the Committee displayed bars of soap allegedly manufactured by the Germans from the corpses of murdered Jews.)

Ehrenburg is perhaps most infamous for his viciously anti-German wartime propaganda. In the words of the Canadian Jewish News: „As the leading Soviet journalist during World War II, Ehrenburg’s writings against the German invaders were circulated among millions of Soviet soldiers.“ His articles appeared regularly in Pravda, Izvestia, the Soviet military daily Krasnaya Zvezda („Red Star“), and in numerous leaflets distributed to troops at the front.

In one leaflet headlined „Kill,“ Ehrenburg incited Soviet soldiers to treat Germans as sub-human. The final paragraph concludes: [2]

„The Germans are not human beings. From now on the word German means to use the most terrible oath. From now on the word German strikes us to the quick. We shall not speak any more. We shall not get excited. We shall kill. If you have not killed at least one German a day, you have wasted that day … If you cannot kill your German with a bullet, kill him with your bayonet. If there is calm on your part of the front, or if you are waiting for the fighting, kill a German in the meantime. If you leave a German alive, the German will hang a Russian and rape a Russian woman. If you kill one German, kill another — there is nothing more amusing for us than a heap of German corpses. Do not count days, do not count kilometers. Count only the number of Germans killed by you. Kill the German — that is your grandmother’s request. Kill the German — that is your child’s prayer. Kill the German — that is your motherland’s loud request. Do not miss. Do not let through. Kill.”

Ehrenburg’s incendiary writings certainly contributed in no small measure to the orgy of murder and rape by Soviet soldiers against German civilians.

Until his death in 1967, „his support for the Soviet state, and for Stalin, never wavered,“ the Canadian Jewish News notes. His loyalty and service were acknowledged in 1952 when he received the Stalin Prize. In keeping with official Soviet policy, he publicly criticized Israel and Zionism.

The Canadian Jewish News further writes:

„ … The recent disclosure that Ehrenburg arranged to transfer his private archives to Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem library and archive, while still alive, comes as a stunning revelation. The reason this information has come to light only now is that Ehrenburg agreed to transfer his archive on condition that the transfer, and his will, remain secret for 20 years after his death. On Dec. 11 [1987], with the 20-year period expired, Israel’s daily Maariv related Ehrenburg’s story…”

The collection includes material about the important wartime Jewish partisan movement. Among the documents in the collection is one concerning a pogrom in Malalchovka, a village near Moscow, which took place in 1959.

This new revelation about one of the most influential figures of the Stalinist regime shows that, whatever he may have said for public consumption, Ehrenburg never privately disavowed Zionism or forgot his ancestry.

Ex-Israel soldier heading child prostitution ring wanted by Interpol

Source: https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20180731-ex-israel-soldier-heading-child-prostitution-ring-wanted-by-interpol/

Three Israelis were arrested over the weekend in Colombia, along with 15 others, on suspicion of involvement in sex trafficking in the tourist city of Cartagena that included the sexual exploitation of more than 250 women and girls, Israel’s Ynet news reported.

It’s reported that Colombian authorities also asked Interpol to arrest a former Israel soldier deported from Colombia for running a child prostitution ring. Authorities claimed that even after his expulsion, 44-year-old Israeli citizen Assi Ben-Mosh continued to manage his illicit operations in Colombia from afar.

Mosh was deported to Israel after it was discovered that he was part of a group of ex-Israeli soldiers that had turned a small fishing village in Taganga into a “sex and drug den” from their base in a luxury resort, the Benjamin Hostel which was known to locals as “little Israel”.

From “little Israel” Moosh is reported to have run similar clubs exploiting drugs and children in Cartagena, Bogotá, Medellín, Ecuador, Mexico and Brazil. Local residents spoke of their relief following his arrest and deportation last November and thought they had seen the back of the former Israeli soldier.

Colombian authorities said that Moosh had harmed the security of the state and its citizens. Reports identified Moosh who was also accused of a number of other charges including tax fraud, drug offenses and inciting children to prostitution.

Moosh denies any connection to the tourism sex ring and, according to Israeli sources, he is currently waging a legal battle to return to Colombia.

The bust over the weekend followed months of surveillance. Authorities said that it was one of the biggest operations to combat child sex trafficking and forced prostitution in Cartagena. In a statement, the attorney general’s office described the victims as “real slaves of the 21st century”.

Even after his abdication, Tsar Nicholas II remained a symbolic, sacred figure, and therefore his murder could have a very specific ritualist meaning in many senses, His Grace Bishop Tikhon (Shevkunov) of Egorievsk, abbot of Moscow’s Sretensky Monastery and Secretary of the patriarchal commission tasked with studying the remains believed to belong to the Royal Martyrs, told RIA-Novosti.

“No one will deny that the emperor, even after his abdication, undoubtedly remained a symbolic, sacred figure. The murder of the tsar and his family, putting the final stamp on the existence of the hatred of the 300-year Romanov dynasty by the new authorities, was a matter bearing very special ritualistic, symbolic meaning for many,” Bp. Tikhon stated.

To the objection, “What ritualistic meanings could there be for the Bolsheviks?” Bp. Tikhon responded with his own question: “Isn’t Lenin’s mausoleum a sacred, symbolic, and ritualistic phenomenon?” The Bolsheviks and their associates, he added, were by no means strangers to a variety of ritualistic symbolism.

“Many people involved in the shooting, whether in Moscow or in Ekaterinburg, saw in the murder of the prostrate Russian autocrat a special ritual of retribution,” the patriarchal commission secretary added. Many different kinds of people surrounded the event, he stated, from sadistic criminals who wanted to personally torture the tsar and his family, to Yurovsky, the leader of the band of regicides, who later boasted of his role in the murders and felt himself to be someone “who performed a sacred historical mission.”

His Grace’s explanation comes on the heels of his statement at Monday’s conference “On the Murder of the Royal Family: New Evaluations and Materials. Discussion,” devoted to the various studies on the remains, that the majority of those involved in the ongoing scientific examinations believe there is evidence of ritual elements in the murder of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. He stated then that according to Yurovsky, all the victims were divided up between the shooters, but that the tsar’s remains show more bullet holes because “everyone wanted to be regicides,” that is, “for many it was a special ritual.”

His statement sparked controversy in both Russian and outside media, which tied his use of the phrase “ritual murder” to anti-Semitic accusations of previous centuries. Yurovsky himself, an atheist, was ethnically Jewish, while all the other perpetrators were Russian.

The Speaker of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia Baruch Gorin, for example, was shocked to hear of Vladyka Tikhon’s statement. “For us it is all an absolute absurdity, for a number of reasons… It is shocking,” he told Interfax-Religion on Tuesday.

While stories of ritualistic murders are tied to various cults and religions, Gorin acknowledged, in Russian history and in the history surrounding the Royal Family, the notion of a ritual murder is “absolutely an anti-Semitic myth,” he stated, adding that the killers in question were, in fact, atheists—although, this is certainly a fact of which Bp. Tikhon is aware.

Western media, such as ABC News, picked up on Gorin’s concern, commenting that, “Some Christians in medieval Europe believed that Jews murdered Christians to use their blood for ritual purposes, something which historians say has no basis in Jewish religious law or historical fact and instead reflected anti-Jewish hostility in Christian Europe.” The article does, however, note that Bp. Tikhon himself said nothing about Jews or Judaism.

[A guilty conscience needs no accuser.]: The Jerusalem Post ran an article entitled, “Russian bishop claims last tsar murdered by Jews for ritual purposes,” also quoting from Gorin, and others, while not producing any quotes from Bp. Tikhon himself to back up the strongly worded title.

The Sretensky abbot addressed the topic again today at a press briefing during a break in the working sessions of the Council of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church which is currently meeting in Christ the Savior Cathedral, explaining that “ritual murder” in the case of the Royal Family is understood exclusively as “revolutionary, Bolshevistic retribution.”

Matters have been worked out with the local Jewish community as well, Bp. Tikhon explained: “I had a conversation with the head of the largest Jewish community in Russia, Alexander Moiseevich Boroda. He called me, I explained our position to him, and, as far as I understood, he was absolutely satisfied by this conversation and explanation—that it had all just been distorted.”

He added that the entire expert commission was “deeply outraged by the disgusting attempts to accuse us of xenophobia and anti-Semitism.” “No one mentioned anything about the nationality or religious affiliation of the shooters,” he said, adding that of the eight shooters, only Yurovsky was non-Russian, but he was not religiously Jewish, according to Interfax-Religion.

The Federation of Jewish Communities even agrees with Bp. Tikhon that the execution of the Royal Martyrs was a symbolic act, but rejects the use of the specific phrase “ritual murder” in relation to this event.

“It is obvious that the execution of the prisoners of the Ipatiev House was carried out by the godless Bolsheviks as a significant symbolic massacre,” Boroda stated today. However, “it is totally unacceptable to use in these processes the historically and ideologically-charged phrasing ‘ritual murder,’ evoking the obvious connotations,” he added.

It was announced today that the Russian Orthodox Church hopes to see the end of the examinations on the Ekaterinburg remains and to come to a decision on their authenticity or lack therefore sometime next year.
