Chanukah Doesn't Cut It

This New Yorker cartoon by Tom Turo  
suggests an unease with Judaism.

Jewish Holidays like Chanukah 
have nothing to do with religion
and imply Jews are their own God.

by Henry Makow Ph.D.
(from Dec. 2, 2011)

I complimented the supermarket cashier on the Christmas carols on the P.A. The store is owned by a Lebanese family.

"You're Muslim, and I'm Jewish, yet supposedly it's for us that they downplay Christmas and make it a generic 'holiday.'
I  enjoy Christmas." 

The cashier smiled and agreed that she also enjoyed Christmas.

"Merry Christmas," I said scooping up my groceries.

 "Merry Christmas!" I heard over my shoulder.

Christmas used to be a religious festival. It commemorated Christ's birth.

Christ preached that God is Love -- love your neighbor as yourself. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Those eleven words are all the religion we need to govern our conduct. 

Christmas was a time of good will, good cheer and giving. It was a spiritual occasion. 

They're eliminating this out of respect for Jews and Muslims?

That's just the "excuse."  Who would object to brotherly love?  

I'll tell you who. The world is run by a satanic cult, the Illuminati. They object.

They have often acknowledged that Christianity is (or was) a major obstacle to Illuminati tyranny and the further enslavement of mankind. This is the real reason Christmas is being eliminated.


The only other holiday happening now is Chanukah. Most Jewish holidays are tribal, involving historical events.

Passover celebrates the Jews' exodus from Egypt.  Purim celebrates Esther outfoxing Haman and his followers in Persia.

They tend to focus on God's love for the Jews instead of the Jews' love for God.  

Chanukah commemorates the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem in the second century BC. During a siege, the oil in a Menorah candle lasted eight days when it shouldn't have. This was interpreted as a miracle and another sign of God's favor. Is this the reason we are abandoning Christmas?

Everyone likes the prestige of being part of a religion and having a "faith." But if we define religion as obeying God, should Judaism even be considered a religion? 

It is structured like a satanic secret society. The exoteric teaching, i.e. what the world sees and some practicing Jews believe, is the Torah, i.e. the first five books of the Old Testament. 

But the real Judaism, that of the Pharisees and later the Illuminati, adopted the Talmud and Cabala instead of the Torah.

The Talmud teaches that only Jews are human and humanity is destined to serve them. The Cabala teaches that,
"It's all good!" God is without character and unknowable; good and evil are inseparable. This is satanic. The whole point of religion is to know God as Moral, the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, truth and lies, ugliness and beauty.  

The essence of a real religion is to obey God, who speaks to us through our divine spirit or soul. This is the principle of our development.
Only a satanist would say God is unknowable.

The Talmud and Cabala reject a moral and universal God, and consequently man's moral and divine nature. In other words, they don't think we have a soul.

Essentially, they replace God with Lucifer, who represents Illuminati Jewish financiers and Cabalists who want to take God's place.

If Jews wish to understand anti-Semitism, they need to understand this: The esoteric leadership create anti-Semitism by advancing their diabolic agenda, the New World Order.


Freemasonry is modeled on Judaism, i.e. a Cabalist secret society where the rank-and-file isn't told the true aims, but are fooled into advancing them.

Using their control of money (credit) and the mass media, government and education, the Illuminati are reprogramming humanity.

They have gutted Christianity and placed mankind on the road to occult enslavement.

The world is firmly in their grip. They invert reality, making what is healthy and good seem evil and vice-versa.

Is it a coincidence that commercials, music videos, video games and movies promote a satanic agenda? (For examples, see Vigilant Citizen.

Is it a coincidence that they tell us to experiment with homosexuality? Promote sexual promiscuity to destroy
marriage and family calling it "sexual liberation?"

Is it a coincidence that they tout "change" yet things keep getting worse?

Welcome to the true meaning of "changing the world." We are being inducted into their satanic cult. 

Mankind now is structured like a satanic secret society. The masses are fooled and controlled by specious platitudes ("excuses.")

Only dupes and those who agree with the diabolical agenda rise to power.

Dec. 25 is the anniversary of Christ's birth.

Most Jews, Christians and Muslims are unhappy with the direction of the world.  Let's use the Gospel of Love to unite and turn things around.

God is love. Satan is hate. God is design. Satan is chaos. We can fill our world with love or hate. We need to convince everyone that love is better than hate.


The Truth About Chanukah
Makow- Society Controlled by Christmas-Hating Satanic Cult

First Comment from Joe C:

Christianity has been greatly  usurped in many ways. "The Union Jack" is a very compelling work about the usurpation of Christianity, about  Christian Zionism, British Israel, Communism, Empire, and the NWO.

I would recommend to all Freemasons to please reconsider your membership in any Freemason group you may belong to. Even those on very low levels of Freemasonry give Freemasonry credence, force, and power. Please reconsider. Unfortunately, there are many who are Freemasons and also consider themselves to be Christians. Yet, Freemasonry is diametrically opposed to Christianity.

On high levels of Freemasonry, those who own and control Freemasonry are Satanic and hate Christianity with a passion. Again, the  low level Freemasons give the Satanists who rule Freemasonry energy and credence and force. If your Freemasonry group does charity work, one can do charity work without being a member of Freemasonry. Freemason charity work is about deceiving those on the low levels, and those receiving the charity,  about the true nature of Freemasonry.

Zionism is NOT Christianity. Zionism was grafted on to Christianity by Freemasons in the late 19th century. Zionist ontology, metaphysics, and eschatology is NOT indigenous to Christianity ; It's a grafting on of something foreign, something inimical, something intentionally meant to undermine and usurp.

Zionism is also tied-at-the-hip with the Islamic Jihadist Muslim Brotherhood. The Christian Zionists are actually supporting a force which is persecuting and killing Christians. The recent intense push by Zionists to get the US military to invade Syria in-support-of and in-alliance-with The Islamic Jihadist Muslim Brotherhood says it all. And to all those Zionist Christians who don't care about the mass persecution of Christians in the Middle East today, who only care about Jews and Israel, your Christian Zionism will eventually lead to Israel's destruction. Ultimately, Christian Zionists are NOT doing  anyone any favors, except the Islamic Jihadists :

" Black Terror, White Soldiers, Islam, Fascism, and the New Age"

And ultimately it's all about British Israel and Empire. And ultimately all those Christians, Jews, and Muslims who just want peace will NOT have a place in the NWO.  Christian Zionism has nothing to do with the Light of Christ and the Spirit of Christmas. Zionism is, in fact, persecuting and killing NON-Zionist Christians in the Middle East.

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

Comments for "Chanukah Doesn't Cut It "

Aisha said (December 22, 2013):

Yes Henry, it is very sad, that Jews celebrate God favoring them, instead it should be other way around. Even saddening to see Jews abandoning Torah for Talmud, and Cabala. Indeed God had given many favors to jews. Interestingly the Quran, last divine revelation from God speaks about Jews in quite length, reminding them that they have gone astray. In the Quran God says: "O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and fulfill My covenant [upon you] that I will fulfill your covenant [from Me], and be afraid of [only] Me. And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My signs for a small price, and fear [only] Me. And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it]....Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah (God) . And Allah (God) is not unaware of what you do...... Do you covet [the hope, O believers], that they would believe for you while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah and then distort the Torah after they had understood it while they were knowing? (Chapter the cow)

Doug P said (December 22, 2013):

Immanual Kant says Judiaism is a political movement, not a religion. He says this in the Cambridge edition of Religion Within The Boundaries Of Mere Reason. He has three very good essays in additional to the title essay in this book, I learned much about the concepts in Chrisrianity from this book.

Paul said (December 25, 2011):

By looking at John the baptist's birth we can determine when Mary became pregnant with Jesus. It was at Chanukah.

As a Christian, I celebrate the light of the world coming into the world at Chanukah. Being conceived at Chanukah, Jesus was born at the time of God's declared Holy day, the feast of Tabernacles (God with us).

If you look at the "holy day" of christ's mass you will find that it is a Catholic holy day, one taken from paganism and given a Christian theme. Even the Catholic encyclopedia will show this truth. Mithrism did not just die out, it was simply renamed. It is the same with Easter. She was the goddess of fertility, and was worshipped at the time of the spring equinox. Jesus was crucified on God's given Holy day of Passover, not Easter.

Since Jesus clearly was not born on Dec. 25th, what then is the reason for the season? We have to ask ourselves this question, do we "fear and tremble" at his word (is 66) and follow his ways/patterns, or do we continue to make tradition more important than God? Do we worship him how we want, or by how he would like us to?

Max said (December 25, 2011):

Henry, thank you for the call: "Let's use the Gospel of Love to unite and turn things around". Thunderous applause for that! Merry Christmas to you and everyone else too. I wish we all take each and every day to be another Christmas, seriously. -Max

Robert said (December 25, 2011):

Eliyah writes: "The earth will experience this and true justice ONLY when Yeshua returns and puts ALL nations in subjection." This is a
complete inversion of everything the New Testament evinces regarding Jesus. His purpose always was to free people from subjection, both to sin and to the power-mongering of others. I can't comprehend the mentality of someone who is enthusiastically awaiting the subjection of mankind.

Josh said (December 25, 2011):

seriously Henry, you are becoming the joke of the MRM.

keeping Christ in Christmas?


Jesus never even existed at all, but of course if I state that you'll discount everything else I say. Fact is, its true. HE NEVER EXISTED. The lie is really quite old and very complex with many layers of BS built on top.

do you know why Jews were always the enemies of the 'good' Christian world? because they were willing to state the truth about the nature of Christianity.

Eliyah said (December 24, 2011):

Actually Henry, Chanukah means dedication and is found in TaNaKh and is actually referenced in the “new testament”, Yochanan/John Chapter 10.

Christmas on the other hand has NOTHING to do with Yeshua/Jesus and is NOT mentioned in the Bible. If anything we are told NOT to learn the ways of the nations, but to come out of her.

This might shed some light if you wish to read it:

I by no means am downplaying the virgin birth of our Messiah or the forgiveness that comes by him. The first mention of the Good News is found in the first book of the Torah, Genesis Chapter 3, the Seed of the woman.

The Creator gave us His appointed times and they are found in Leviticus 23 and are the ONLY feasts EVER mentioned in the “new testament”.

These feasts of YHVH/YaHWeH were kept by Yeshua and the original taught ones.

Every false Christ was born on 12/25 and there are more than a handful of them. These pagan customs go all the way back to Nimrod and Babylon.

Sadly the “church” would rather follow the harlot mystery religions rather than keep YaHWeH’s feasts which according to Him are forever.

Yes, I whole heartedly agree with you in regards to so called “jews” that are not REAL Yehudim, but fake Torahless Talmud followers.

These “jews” put the EVIL Talmud above the Written Torah and Yeshua would call them Torahless just as he did the so called religious elite of his time as well.

The truth of the matter is that most believers are NOT walking like the Messiah they claim to believe in, instead they are following the spirit of the evil one.

Teachings you will never find in taught by Yeshua or the original taught ones: Sunday, Christmas, Ishtar/easter, pre-trib rapture, etc…

Seriously, do NOT take my word for it, do a word search yourself.

I do applaud your desire for righteousness and right ruling. The earth will experience this and true justice ONLY when Yeshua returns and puts ALL nations in subjection.

Modern day Israel is NOT true Yisrael, it is a fake controlled by the same Torahless sons of beliyal that control the US and other nations as well.


Marti said (December 24, 2011):

Excellent article, Henry!! I have always wished everyone a Merry Christmas because that is, what it is. I have noticed people saying Merry Christmas very emphatically this year, which shows many people understand what is going on. No being known to man hates Jesus Christ anymore than satan because Jesus defeated him at the cross. Trying to get rid of Christianity only proves that the power of Christ is the greatest power, ever!! If this is not so, then why all of the effort to get rid of Christianity? There is no other reason.

Michele said (December 24, 2011):

It has taken hundreds if not thousands of years for Satan to perfect his plans but God the Creator takes only an instant to create.

On the birth of Jesus and his ultimate sacrifice God has given us eternity and immortal life. Satan can only provide a facsimile of power, his power is degenerate and calls upon the lowest of instincts - the here and now, instant gratification of personal desires over the suffering of others.

Christmas for me creates a personal link between me and the Godhead, everything else is a counterfeit, an imperfect vision. Satan needs to manipulate the created to construct his adulation, God and Christ only need our belief and faith in eternal truth and goodness. I hope that everyone finds his connection to God this Christmas."

Bless you and have a good Christmas and I extend that to all your readers.

Dan said (December 24, 2011):

For a few decades I said "Happy Holidays" and didn't give it a second thought. This year I say "Merry Christmas". I think freedom of religion means we don't take offense if we Jewish men wearing yarmulkes on their way to a Bar Mitzvah; or seeing Muslim women shopping wearing the hijab (veil). Can anyone imagine the French, US, or German government banning yarmulkes in public?

What I do see every day is lots of T shirts with overtly Satanic and Illuminati imagery and it never occurs to anyone to ban them for offending anybody, I suppose, because they're 'not religious symbols'. I see lots of naked flesh - and now celebrity men kissing men on the covers of magazines at every checkout line. And any reference to Christ at Christmas is a hate crime?
