Jewish myths glorify manipulation and deceit

You can tell a lot about Jews from their stories. Reading the Old Testament, I’m constantly struck by how many of its tales seem to glorify deceitfulness. This quality is found in even the greatest of the Jewish patriarchs. Abraham, for example, pimped his wife out to the Egyptian pharaoh by pretending she was his sister. Abraham’s son, Isaac, was conned by his wife and … Continue reading Jewish myths glorify manipulation and deceit

Roger Stone, Jewish fraud and the Zohar

Roger Stone has been brandishing a copy of the Zohar, claiming he hopes it will protect him from Fake News. He obviously doesn’t know much about the history of this book, otherwise the irony of doing this could scarcely have eluded even someone of his limited intellectual capacity. Because the Zohar is one of history’s most epic fakes. So let’s talk about it. The Zohar … Continue reading Roger Stone, Jewish fraud and the Zohar

The Bible is a “We Wuz Kangz” fantasy for Jews

Jews like to boast of their glorious forebears. Disraeli, for example, once retorted to the Irishman Daniel O’Connell: ‘Yes, I am a Jew, and while the ancestors of the right honorable gentleman were brutal savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon.’ Like most of the episodes in the vast saga that the Jews call their history, however, the period … Continue reading The Bible is a “We Wuz Kangz” fantasy for Jews

Jewish betrayal of Christians during the siege of Constantinople

I’m been forcing myself to read the second volume of Simon Schama’s godawful book “The Story of the Jews: Belonging 1492-1900”. Like all of Schama’s books, it’s hard going. His pretentious prose is an ordeal and his background as an art historian leads him to linger inordinately on the undistinguished history of Jewish artistic productions. His stock-in-trade as a historian seems to be packing his … Continue reading Jewish betrayal of Christians during the siege of Constantinople

The truth about Hanukkah: it’s a fraud

I took a break from posting this week to research the history of Hanukkah. Like almost every other aspect of Jewish history, it turns out to be a fraud. Until recently, Hanukkah was considered an insignificant festival, even for Jews. It is not one of their major holidays. But, starting in the 19th century, American Jews began to big it up and push it on … Continue reading The truth about Hanukkah: it’s a fraud

The Lies of Simon Wiesenthal, Episode 3: The Sunflower

Simon Wiesenthal once published a book called The Sunflower. It recounted an experience he claimed he had had in 1943, as a Jewish prisoner during the war. He said that one day, while he was present in a hospital, he was asked to go into another room and meet someone. When he did, he found a heavily bandaged man on the verge of death. The … Continue reading The Lies of Simon Wiesenthal, Episode 3: The Sunflower

The Lies of Simon Wiesenthal – Episode 2: the Soapocaust

The legend of Jews being turned into bars of soap by the Nazis lives on in the popular imagination despite the fact that all serious scholars now reject it. Simon Wiesenthal did not originate the myth but he did play a critical role in disseminating it at a crucial stage when first impressions were being formed in the immediate post-war era. Despite the comprehensive scholarly … Continue reading The Lies of Simon Wiesenthal – Episode 2: the Soapocaust
