ed note–again, as we like to counsel on this little informational/analytical endeavor on a regular basis, one simply CANNOT understand the world as it functions today without first understanding this thing known as ‘organized Jewish power’ (otherwise known by its acronym ‘OJP’) and one CANNOT understand this thing known as ‘OJP’ without first understanding RATIONALLY and without any pre-conceived emotional/religious mind-clutter this thing known as Torah Judaism, which serves as the nuclear reactor for ‘OJP’.
Now, as far as the specifics contained herein on the part of our deranged Hebrish writer, please note the following–
1. That indeed, despite the fallacious claims on the part of an entire disinformation/misinformation industry operating within the ‘alternative media’ which claims that it is the ‘Talmud’ that forms and guides all Judaic thought and behavior, that it is indeed the Torah (Old Testament) that is the source of the ignition spark for the Judaic engine of destruction. The Talmud does indeed play a role, but only as a reference manual in how to apply the teachings and ‘protocols’ of the Torah, the ‘book’ which serves as the ‘ultimate authority’.
2. That it is the process of CONSTANT ‘remembering’ that disciplines the Judaic mind in its eternal war against Gentiledom in many ways very similar to what victims of the infamous ‘Chinese water torture’ endure. And remember, it is not just once a year where the cult members of Judaism are commanded to ‘remember Amalek’ and to devote themselves to ‘wiping him out’, as our deranged Hebrish writer makes Kristol clear, to wit–
‘Our prayer services are suffused with memory as well, including a specific reading at the end of every weekday morning service known as ‘The Six Remembrances’ in the Ashkenazic rite and as ‘The Ten Remembrances’ in the Sephardi rite, and both include ‘remembering Amalek’.
In other words, EVERY SINGLE DAY across both the Ashkenazic (European) and Sephardic (Middle Eastern) spectrum of Jewry, every prayer service ends with the remembrance to ‘wipe out Amalek’.
By contrast, one can imagine what the effect would be if every daily Catholic mass ended with the reading of the Passion recounting how organized Jewish interests at that time affected the arrest/murder of Jesus Christ for His ‘crimes against the state’, that state of course being Israel, or daily Islamic prayer services ending with Muslims being told to ‘never forget’ about the conspiracy against Mohammed on the part of ‘bani Israel’ to kill him.
3. Note that in the Judaic mind, Esau–whose descendants today are said to be those of European descent–is the blood relative of ‘Amalek’ whom the Jews are commanded EVERY SINGLE DAY in their ‘Remembrances’ to ‘destroy’.
Also note as well the other indicators contained herein of the same derangement syndrome that afflicts the Judaic mind that has been driven mad and exists within a state of reality-detachment as a result of the indoctrination infused into it, to wit–
‘We Jews are God’s messengers to the world, bringing the message that all people are equal, that all have the same basic rights and entitlements, that all spring from a single source and thus there is no one people who is better than any other. There is no one people more deserving than another…Judaism teaches that no one person is better than anyone else; therefore no one has a right to lord it over anyone else.’
This coming from someone following a religion that teaches that the Jews are ‘Chosen above all others on the face of the earth’.
‘The Torah informs us over and again to feed the hungry, grant equal protection of the law to the stranger, keep our weights honest and our wages fair and paid on time.’
This from someone who follows a religion that commands him and his fellow tribe members to lie, cheat, steal, charge usurious interest rates to Gentiles, etc, etc, etc, as well as the following–
‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall save nothing alive that breathes…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy. You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…’–Book of Deuteronomy
‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly…’–Leviticus 25:44-46
As well as religiously-permitting the rape of Gentile women (and little girls who have ‘not yet known a man’) and a thousand other acts of overt warfare against non-Jews that span the ENTIRE SPECTRUM of criminal behavior adjudged to be such by every civilizational standard throughout the entirety of human history.
And finally, in bringing this thing ‘full-circle’, what must be understood is that it is THIS system, this philosophy that today sits in the driver’s seat of major world affairs, from global war to global economic activity to global pandemics to geo-politics, coups, etc, etc, etc, none of which would have been possible had RATIONAL Gentiles began the process thousands of years ago of understanding RATIONALLY and without any pre-conceived emotional/religious mind-clutter this thing known as Torah Judaism, which–as already proven above–serves as the nuclear reactor for this thing known as ‘Organized Jewish Power’.
Times of Israel
Tomorrow is a special Shabbat on our calendar — one of a group of four Shabbatot that precede Passover. This particular Shabbat is called Shabbat Zachor, the ‘Sabbath of Remember.’
It got that name because on the Shabbat before Purim every year, we add three verses from Deuteronomy 25:17-19 to the Torah reading scheduled for that week. The three Deuteronomy verses begin with the word ‘zachor,’ remember.
Just as Judaism is a living, breathing, constantly-growing and expanding system, it is also a system rooted in memory. Everything we do involves memory. Everything we are involves memory. ‘For remember that you were slaves in the Land of Egypt and the Lord took you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm’… Deuteronomy 5:15.
That event, the Torah informs us over and again, is why we observe Shabbat, feed the hungry, grant equal protection of the law to the stranger, keep our weights honest and our wages fair and paid on time.
And, of course, that is why we will celebrate Pesach, Passover, in five weeks’ time. Pesach would have no point if not for memory. Memory is especially evident in its signature ritual, the seder.
All of our feast days and fast days, in fact, are about memory of one kind or another.
Our prayer services are suffused with memory, as well, including a specific reading at the end of every weekday morning service–In the Ashkenazic rite it is known as ‘The Six Remembrances’, and in the Sephardi rite it is known as ‘The Ten Remembrances’, and both include ‘remembering Amalek’.
Remembering is constantly before us, so why do we need to set aside a special Shabbat dedicated to remembering?
To answer that, we need to take a close look at Deuteronomy 25:17-19—
‘Remember what Amalek did to you on your way out of Egypt, that he surprised you on the road, when you were tired and hungry, and attacked your stragglers in the rear — he did not fear God. And it shall be — when you are settled in the land of your inheritance that the Lord your God gives you, and He has given you rest from all your enemies around you that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under the heavens; do not forget.’
‘Amalek’ actually refers to the tribe of that name, not to its founder, the grandson of Esau. It is what the Amalekite tribe did to us that we are supposed to remember on this Shabbat, because it is the Shabbat before Purim. That was when the Amalek of his day, the evil Haman, tried to finish what Amalek began.
So it is not just ‘Amalek’ we are supposed to remember, but all of the ‘Amaleks’ throughout history.
That raises three questions:
1. Who qualifies as an Amalek?
2. Why should we remember these evil people and their evil deeds?
3. And most pointedly, why choose Amalek to symbolize all those who oppressed us and sought to destroy us, when there is a much better candidate—Pharaoh, the biggest biblical bad guy of them all?
There is a difference between Pharaoh and Amalek, however. Pharaoh did not enslave Israel because it was Israel; he enslaved Israel for reasons of state, two of which we hear him give in Exodus 1.
1. Israel was from the same region of Canaan as the Semites who ruled the northern part of the country for more than 100 years, until they were overcome and chased out of Egypt. Pharaoh feared Israel might help them attempt a return to power. ‘Let us deal shrewdly with them,’ he says, ‘so that they may not increase; otherwise, in the event of war, they may join our enemies in fighting against us….’
2. Fear of war aside, Pharaoh was concerned that the ‘much too numerous’ Israelites would become so numerous that they would either upset the status quo of Egyptian life, or that Egypt would be unable to prevent them from returning to Canaan should they decide to ‘go up from the land,’ which would create a serious economic crisis.
Amalek, on the other hand, had none of these concerns. Its concern was about what Israel was about to become—God’s messengers to the world, bringing a message that all people are equal, that all have the same basic rights and entitlements, that all spring from a single source and thus there is no one people who is better than any other. There is no one people more deserving than another.
Amalek was not out to kill the People of Israel; it was out to kill God’s messengers to humankind. He wanted to stop them with the hope of stopping their mission.
And that is what distinguishes the Amalek wannabes from the rest of our enemies. They do not hate us for who we are; they hate us for what we represent, namely in creating a human existence predicated on a just, moral, and ethical world, the task given to us by G-d.
By attacking the rear, where the elderly and infirm were, and where the children were, Amalek wanted to demoralize us; to turn us away from the God of our deliverance from Egypt; to make us think that this God was a false god who was powerless to protect us.
The Book of Esther traces Haman’s roots to the tribe of Amalek, and specifically to one of its kings, Agag by name.
Heritage aside, however, Haman is a classic example of Amalek. He did not hate the Jews as a people; he hated them for what they represented. Mordechai would not bow down to Haman because Judaism teaches that no one person is better than anyone else; therefore no one has a right to lord it over anyone else. Haman could not accept that. To him, such a philosophy would gnaw away at the casteism and philosophical racism he held so dear, and so he schemed to destroy the Jews of Persia.
Throughout history, Amaleks such as Haman have challenged not who we are, but what we are about. They make laws to prohibit the study of Torah, the practice of ritual circumcision (a subject that keeps coming up in Europe especially), the observance of Shabbat (signs in New York and elsewhere once read, ‘If you don’t come to work on Saturday, don’t bother to come on Sunday’), and adherence to the kosher laws (for example, Belgium’s ban on kosher slaughter and the European Union’s tendency toward a continent-wide ban).
These Amaleks understand that to get rid of the Jews, you need only to separate them from their holy texts and prevent them from observing their special laws. Keep it up long enough and eventually, they will not even remember that they are Jews.
The irony is that while we survived the schemes of all of history’s Amaleks, we have ignored the Amalek closest to us — the Amalek within ourselves.
Voluntarily, we have separated ourselves from our holy texts because we cannot read the language, much less understand what actually is being said. For too many of us, a hospital circumcision is as good as a brit milah. For a growing number of us, circumcision at all is barbaric and outdated. Not only do too many of us ignore Shabbat and kashrut, we voluntarily and with great anticipation bite into forbidden foods.
And that is why we need the ‘Shabbat of Remember,’ or Shabbat Zachor. It is not to remember the people who sought to destroy us, but to remember how they sought to do it, so that we can avoid destroying ourselves.
Simply stated, we need to ask ourselves these questions: Is this how Amalek would have wanted me to behave? Is what I am doing giving Amalek a posthumous victory?
We need to ask those questions — and then we need to answer them honestly, and decide what we are prepared to do about it.
