Rabbinic Council Says Dead
Lebanon Kids Not Innocent
By Rev. Ted Pike
- Yesha Rabbinical Council is the recognized
authority on Jewish religious questions in Gaza and the West Bank. This week
it decreed that at least 56 Lebanese citizens of Kfar Qanna, including at
least 34 children, targeted by a Zionist air strike,
were not "innocent."
- "The Yesha
Rabbinical Counsel announced in response to an IDF attack in Kfar Qanna that
'according to Jewish law, during a time of battle and war, there is no such
thing as 'innocence' among the enemy.'" 1
- The council's edict reflects existing
Israeli military/religious law. The chaplain for the IDF forces says,
"In war, when our forces storm the enemies, they are
allowed and even enjoined by the Halakah to kill even good civilians, that is,
civilians that are ostensibly good." 2
- Such official standards come from binding
Jewish law, or Halakah, contained in the Babylonian Talmud. The Talmud is the
highest religious and ethical authority for the Zionist entity
and religious Jews. The Talmudic 'proof text' for Yesha's decision came from
treatise Abodah-Zarah 26b, where Rabbi Simeon Ben Yohai says:
"The best among the gentiles deserves to be killed. The
best of snakes ought to have its head crushed."
- Is the author of such bloodthirsty racism
denounced in our time? Hardly. Rabbi Ben Yohai is one of the earliest and
therefore most respected of Talmudic rabbis. He is so beloved by
Ultra-Orthodox Jews in the Zionist entity that every
year at his birth place, in Meron, tens of thousands gather for days in the
festival of Lag Ba Omar to sing and dance in honor of his memory. The
prestigious Encyclopedia Judaica, in its article on him, describes Ben Yohai
as one of the giants of Judaism for all time.
- Ben Yohai's bloodlust against Gentiles is
enshrined in the the Zionist entity itself, a nation
whose apartheid laws caused the United Nations to term Zionism
"a form of racism and racial discrimination" in
1976. They were putting it mildly. But Zionism isn't the root cause; it's one
black fruit of the poisoned root of the religion founded and guided by the
ancient Pharisees, those whom Christ so bitterly rebuked. "Rabbinic" Judaism
is not the Hebrew monotheism established by God through Moses. Rather, it is
what that pure religion became after its leaders rejected and crucified
- World Revulsion
- Much of the world, not sharing
the Zionist entity's disregard for the lives of innocent civilians
caught in a war zone, were shaken by IDF's intentional strike on a huddled
enclave of refugees at Qanna this week. Christianity, the heritage of Western
nations, teaches compassion toward innocent non-combatants in war time, as
well as to a vanquished enemy. Despite some Allied atrocities during World War
II (including the bombing of Dresden), such core values epitomized US altruism
to Japan and Germany following the war.
- But Orthodox Talmudic Judaism, the
official religion of the the Zionist entity, has no
sympathy for such high-mindedness. Jewish leadership is bold in asserting that
Judaism is not a 'turn the other cheek' religion, or one to forget past
offences. Judaism is a 'hit back' religion. The Talmud teaches that if you
know your enemy is out to kill you, don't do good to him. Kill him first.
- Having rejected the Messiah who commanded,
"Love your enemies," Israel has become one of the
most ruthless oppressors on the planet.
- Who's Killing Infidels Now?
- A high percent of Christians live in
Lebanon. To Jews who believe the Talmud literally, Christians are idolaters -
worshipping the false prophet Jesus. And what should be done with idolaters?
The Talmud commands ". . . those who deny the Torah and
prophets of Israel-the law is that all those should be killed: and those that
have the power of life and death should have them killed; and if this cannot
by done, they should be led to their death by deceptive methods." 3
- The renowned medieval Jewish sage and
Talmudist Maimonides, writes: "Do not eat with
idolaters, nor permit them to worship their idols; for it is written: make no
covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them. (Deuteronomy 7:2) Either turn
them away from their idols or kill them." 4
- Incidentally, the Talmud says that the
children of Gentiles, such as those bombed into rubble at Kfar Qanna, are to
be regarded as animals. The Jewish Encyclopedia article on "Gentiles," p. 621,
says that the Torah [Talmud] "outlawed the issue [child]
of a Gentile as that of a beast."
- Zionist Massacres
- The Zionist entity's
"hit back" policy has repeatedly endorsed reprisals against the Arabs, not
only in the Zionist entity and the occupied
territories, but Lebanon, especially in 1982.
- What happened then is remarkably similar
to what is happening now. Listen to World Vision International's Stan
Mooneyham, who was on the scene.
- Some say there was two hours
notice. Others insist there was none. In a camp of 60,000, it's not easy to
get the word around, even when warning leaflets are dropped . . . the first
planes came at five o'clock in the evening; from just after midnight until
eight the next evening the bombing was continuous. For three days the pounding
went on. Everybody here has friends who died in the attack. A woman makes a
chopping motion across the knee of a baby another woman is holding, saying she
saw a baby at Ein-el-Hilweh who had both legs blown off.
- There is no Ein-el-Hilweh anymore. Never
before have I seen such total destruction, not even in Managua, the
earthquake-stricken capital of Nicaragua. If the world's war makers and peace
makers want to see what the saturation bombing looks like, they should look
here. The Zionist entity , the country skilled in
making the desert blossom like a rose, knows also how to turn rose into
- Block after block of crumpled wreckage is
all that's left. Plus the unknown number of bodies. There must be hundreds
down there underneath the rubble - the permeating odor of decaying flesh tells
you that much. Refugees who escaped say that as many as 8,000 died. The Red
Cross puts the number at 1,500. Either way, it's one of the major massacres of
modern times. (Ed. note: The final Lebanese death toll was 17,500).
- Mooneyham then describes the Israeli
attack on Sidon in the darkness of the early morning:
- . . . at 2:30 Monday mornings, June 14, an
aerial bomb slices into Kineye School. It rips bodies apart, strews arms and
legs and pieces of what a second before had been living, breathing human
beings. The concussion takes the rest.
- No more running. No more crying. Now they
- Now here I am three weeks later, where no
observer is supposed to be, seeing what no observer is supposed to see. The
bodies and pieces of bodies . . . Kineye School is a charnel house: body
fluids, creeping across the basement floor from the stack of bodies, are ankle
deep in places. It is possible to count 50 or so bodies. The rest are piled
atop each other, hurled there by the blast that took their lives. We are told
there are 255 in the helter-skelter pile."
- Lest We Forget
- The Zionists, of
course, played down the casualties and damage in Sidon, as well as Beirut. Yet
Mooneyham, who managed to penetrate the area much sooner than other Western
observers has this to report:
- If the Zionist
figure of 165 killed in Sidon is accurate, I saw all but ten of those bodies
in one school basement, still unburied three weeks after the
invasion. That says nothing about the township of Ein-el-Hilweh just outside
of Sidon which had a normal population of 60,000 and was obliterated by
- As the head of an international relief
organization bringing $400,000 worth of medical and relief supplies to the
victims of the holocaust, Mooneyham was astonished at the refusal of the
Zionist conquerors to allow distribution of such
necessities, even after the fighting had ended and the area was secure.
delivery attempts were thwarted on several occasions by Israeli blockades . .
. Causing costly delays . . . Israel refused all relief agencies access to
occupied areas for more than ten days of the worst need when quick action
could have saved many lives. The Red Cross ship SS Anton (carrying World
Vision relief supplies) was refused permission on security grounds to land
critically needed supplies to Sidon two weeks after the invasion, although our
people in the city reported total security, with people fishing on the docks."
- Although Mooneyham did not view other
areas of Lebanon as closely as his inspection of Tyre and its environs, what
he saw there prompts him to make an ominous comparison:
"The sheer magnitude of this one visible piece of the Israeli war machine is
incredible. David seems determined to become Goliath." 5
- History Repeats Itself
- Today, America and the West naively impute
Christian instincts and values to Israel, our supposed ally in the "war
against terror." But the Zionist entity's ethics are
worlds apart from ours. Their Talmudic values do not come from Christ, but
from those who killed Him, the Pharisees.
- Further, the Zionist
entity resents American attempts to impose Christian ethics. This week
the Yesha Rabbinical Council sent this terse statement to the Christian West,
"All of the discussions on Christian morality are
weakening the spirit of the army and the nation and are costing us in the
blood of our soldiers and civilians." 6
- In other words, the
Zionist entity's Judaic says, "Butt out of any
attempt to Christianize the Israeli war machine!"
- Dissent Answered with Bullets
- In the early 1980's, my father and our
family promoted the newly revived National Day of Prayer at the National
Religious Broadcasters Convention in Washington D.C. In a booth near ours, a
Christian friend, Stan Rittenhouse, was selling his book critical of Zionism,
For Fear of the Jews. Rabbi Ben Ami, liaison between the
Zionist entity and the religious right, stopped to peruse Stan's book.
He flew into a fury shouting, "He should be killed!"
- Would a Christian minister or priest
respond that way toward an opposing view? Of course not.
- But Rabbi Ben Ami comes from a very
different mindset. His deep hit-back-hit-first reflex lashed out from a
racial/religious tradition going back thousands of years.
- Time to Pull Out
- After the Zionist entity's
saturation bombing of Lebanon in 1982, Prime Minister Menachem Begin
arrogantly defended the Zionist entity's actions
saying, "We do not have to answer to the world, only to
- In other words, the
Zionist entity may take America's military and monetary contributions
to her war-making in the Mid-East, but she rejects any attempts by the
Christian world to impose its Christian morality upon her- a morality which,
if implemented, could end Mid-East strife. America's business is to mutely
supply the money and military hardware that enables Zionism's bloody
- Isn't it time to ask a few commonsense
- George Washington warned America to "avoid
foreign entanglements." Just what are we doing spending nearly a trillion
dollars and sacrificing thousands of American lives on the other side of the
world to benefit nations, whether in Tel Aviv or Baghdad, who reject our
- America was intended by its founding
fathers, not to be an international meddler in the strife of foreign lands,
but a beacon of truth and liberty which benighted foreign nations could turn
toward for inspiration. It's time to disentangle ourselves from the troubled
Middle East and make use of the same man-power and the next trillion dollars
to build a stronger America.
- It's time to come home.
