Judaism Seeks Salvation for a Race, Not for Individuals

July 30, 2009

Roy Tov is an Israeli political dissident living in Bolivia. He has converted to Christianity (speaks at churches in Bolivia.  A brilliant chemist, he was exiled because he converted and socialized with Palestinians. Recently he was attacked, injured  and robbed by Israelis in La Paz. This is Ch. 20 of his unpublished book "The Road to Bethlehem." It shows how collectivism (e.g. Socialism, Zionism and Communism) might originate in the Jewish focus on ethnic redemption and explains why these movements have no moral compunction when dealing with perceived enemies of collective redemption. i.e. "the end justifies the means."

     Christianity poses a singular threat to Jewish leadership. Universally, religion deals with salvation or redemption of the human soul. Judaism speaks about an ethnic salvation, provided the group fulfills the 613 Mosaic Laws written in the Pentateuch, the Bible's first five books. The laws' fulfillment is enforced and monitored by a dedicated group of priests.

   In essence, the individuals' good-standing depends on the priests' judgment. As a result this is a powerful control tool over the general population. Since most of the population is not instructed on law, and moral values are not taught to them, they can be easily manipulated as per the priests' political goals at any given moment.

       This became a model for the leaders of the young State of Israel. They created a country without constitution - nor set borders - in which laws could be changed quickly and unpredictably. Every citizen is in danger of becoming guilty of yesterday's crime which is today's law. A good relationship with the ever watchful authorities is the only assurance of receiving a redemptive wink.

      It went even deeper. The tone of a typical Israeli conversation is highly ironic and displays a harsh and almost automatic criticism of the other person. Unlike  British humor, the Israeli never points this weapon at himself. Under such circumstances, no deed or word are good enough for achieving redemption - i.e. social acceptance by a fellow citizen.

      The result is that people seldom relax and create nurturing, positive relations with their peers. Every conversation is a battlefield, every friend hides a foe. Every dispute or criticism may deteriorate and lead to excommunication and the loss of the promised redemption.

     Even those who grew up far away from a religious education were heavily indoctrinated on the importance of collective identity. "We don't do that," and "We do this" are the ubiquitous and unquestioned mantras of Jewish-Israeli society.

People proclaimed the opinions of their ethnic and religious groups, using "we" more often than "I." By repeating the views expected of them Israelis spared themselves the need to think or express their true opinions.
     

JESUS

Jesus broke up this line of reasoning. He taught about personal redemption based on faith and love, of having direct access to God through our prayers and thus of being independent from priests. He preached the Kingdom of God, a society based on justice and love. Such a society can exist within the framework of a modern state, but it would lead to the loss of power by the few men thriving under Pharisaic modeled societies.

      The result was that Jesus was considered an enemy from the beginning. His teachings and the New Testament were banned. So were many of the prophets who had made clear allusions to a Messiah resembling Jesus and of a New Covenant based on love and forgiveness. Therefore, the Pharisaic and rabbinical communities restricted their studies and commentaries to the Pentateuch. The other Old Testament books became nothing more than historic literature.

     Even in my quasi-Communist high school - which claimed to be secular - we skipped Chapter 53 of the Book of Isaiah, which contains the clearest and exact allusion to Jesus, His deeds and the New Covenant in the Old Testament. The original text in Hebrew is even clearer than most translations into Indo-European languages.  Isaiah's complex language always contains a subtext that is lost in the translations. In verse five, he doesn't only claim that His wounds would heal us, but he also hinted that we are healed by His companionship, delivering much of the Christian doctrine in just a few words.

      Since it's difficult to attack a preaching of love and peace, the approach chosen by the Pharisees was complex. Jesus and His period were scarcely mentioned in Israeli history classes. Instead, greater emphasis was placed on deviant Christians who moved away from His teachings and committed atrocities.

     The Spanish Inquisition was a central topic; the tortures were studied in excruciating detail. In that way, few of us would feel inclined to learn more about Christianity and the priests would keep their positions and the huge material and political benefits accompanying them. We were encouraged to fear Christianity.

      The model was adopted by the State of Israel. For such a method to work in a modern state, two things were imperative. The first was a Jewish majority and thus the "Law of Return" granting immediate citizenship to any Jew immigrating to Israel was the first law legislated by the Israeli parliament.This created a new problem, namely defining "Who is a Jew?" which is still unresolved.

      The second was giving the priests control over key points of citizens' lives: birth, marriage and burial. Even nowadays, these events are controlled exclusively by religious authorities while basic human rights are grossly ignored.

Peter said (August 1, 2009):

The Schossen article reflects the social dynamics of a religious cult. This ( the dynamics, where Obama is perfectly at home)has taken over the US which 'leads' the world into a global version.
The self regulating social dynamics in Israel may not be as stark in the western nations nevertheless the ability to communicate perspectives about what is going on in the world contrary to the major political parties and the media is just as difficult intellectually. So people then find like minds on the 'net'.
The social dynamic is a paradox because it is a form of perpetual revolution based on crisis upon crisis revolving around a static philosophy. Everything and everybody is
expendable to the 'messiah'/state/culture/brotherhood/corporation/
institution/ you name it, run by an occultic elite who of course could never really fully trust one another even within the same family as commonly found in history. So the expendability can actually go right to the top.

In fact communist cells used to practice it by purging the leaders cyclically for the diety system. And Rabbi Stephen Wise said Marxism was Judaism.Fact remains stranger than fiction.

Thank you so much for the valuable report on Rueven Schossen. His testament is definitely one for our times. And he needs political assylum.

Like so many on the Jewish American roll of honour, it is clear that Rueven is of Khazarian descent. Whether Christians or Jews or Muslims - the people of this ethnicity are going to do a lot more than just go with the flow in terms of their convictions. As Christians - like Benjamin Freedman - they are going to do a lot more than just sit on their Blessed Assurance. As Catholics, the Khazarians led the armies of Christendom against the Muslim invasions of Europe often turning the tide of events for their co-religionists around against impossible odds.

I hope that Americans who want to save America as a free society and Christians who want regather the Christian forces can see what great potential is in this young man if he could be granted assylum from his foes in the U.S.

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Christianity poses a singular threat to Jewish leadership. Universally, religion deals with salvation or redemption of the human soul.

The laws' fulfillment is enforced and monitored by a dedicated group of priests.


The "ethnic salvation" is for self-styled Jews alone who believe they are collectively their own Messiah.

The 613 spurious laws are for non-Jews, that is, for animals G-d created in the human form to serve non-Semitic self-styled Jews. The 613 laws are neither Mosaic nor are they written anywhere in the Old Testament let alone the Pentateuch. Please correct this and inform readers that the Noahide laws are a fraud.

In essence, the individuals' good-standing depends on the priests' judgment.


This is contrary which restricts salvation to grace by faith alone. Read the history of Abraham in the Old or New Testaments.

When apostate self-styled Jews organized the Roman Catholic false church at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicea Council in partnership with the Roman State (which they had helped to destroy) they introduced this nicolaitane concept of a priestly hierarchy "which Jesus hates" (Revelation 2:15).

The Spanish Inquisition was a central topic; the tortures were studied in excruciating detail. In that way, few of us would feel inclined to learn more about Christianity and the priests would keep their positions and the huge material and political benefits accompanying them. We were encouraged to fear Christianity.


The Spanish Inquisition had nothing whatever to do with Christianity. It was conducted by so-called Jews and the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church which was at no time Christian following Jewish treachery against their host nation Spain.

Your brother-in-Christ,
