Racism in Israel: When, And Why, Ha•lâkh•âh Went Dark

Racism as an example I started from the earliest times, checking to find when things first went awry. When I think about racism within Yi•sᵊr•â•eilꞋ (the nation), the facts lead me to dismiss the notion of inherent racism at the time of Mōsh•ëhꞋ, citing the eiꞋrëv rav. Likewise, , the facts lead me to dismiss…

The Root Of Innate Jewish Racism

The root of Israeli racism isn’t solely against Ethiopians, nor skin color, nor even Arabs. Israeli racism is Jewish racism on steroids. Even among Ashkenazim seculars, exclusive Jewish genetic chosenness supremacism (EJGCS) grows from a superstitious awe of a core European-Ashkenazi Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim (EAUK) root, which has persecuted, and continues to torment, non-Ashkenazim whom the…

Affiliating With The Nᵊtzâr•im

Website Updated, Streamlined Updated Website Pages For Jews & Non-Jews Neither Ta•na”khꞋ nor The Nᵊtzârim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyâhu provides any basis for separate membership, or certificate, of the Nᵊtzâr•imꞋ within the 1st-century C.E. Jewish community. Nor do I recall any other denominational documentation recorded in either Ta•lᵊmudꞋ. Thus, it would appear, neither should we…

Anthropomorphism Of Ancient Animal Sacrifices

I’ve recently spent time resolving the cognitive dissonance of apparent anthropomorphism in Biblical animal sacrifices; and the twice weaning of Israel from an anthropomorphic temple, the second time being permanently invalidated by the loss of the yō•khas•inꞋ. These issues have been incorporated in our glossary terms: khat•âtꞋ, ōl•âhꞋ, shᵊlâm•imꞋ and qârᵊbânꞋ. Happy reading!

Infanticide (Abortion)

Since the beginning of the Holocaust until today, there have been 10x as many infants murdered (aborted) by their parents as the total number of Jews murdered in the Holocaust! Scriptural Basis: Misinterpreted & Mistranslated Shᵊm•ōtꞋ 21.22-23 is cited as the Scriptural basis for the Judaic views concerning abortion. First, we must distinguish between the…

Scriptural Basis re: Abortion

When I did BBS for Mishpatim, I didn’t notice that Shemot 21.22-23 is the basis for Judaic views regarding infanticide (abortion). So I’ve gone back and incorporated those verses (evening 2, year 2) and uploaded it so yall can be aware that the rabbinic readings have assumed where they shouldn’t have. (https://bit.ly/2HLBb6X) It’s short but…

R. Riskin’s Myopia; The Gaping Israeli-American Jewish Rift

Contrary to Nadav Shragai’s excessive admiration in Israel ha-Yom (https://bit.ly/2W92Wzl), the up-to-date reality is that there are a number — a growing number — of Torah scholars who have a significantly deeper understanding of essential aspects of U.S. Jewry impacting the current Orthodox-Non-Orthodox rift in global Jewry than Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin. This growing number…

American Jews: Self-Defined Sojourners In Modern-Day Egypt

America’s “Melting Pot” There is a key that illuminates the growing, and explosive, rift between “Blue” American liberal/socialist Jews and “Red” American Trump-conservative, capitalist Jews (see Yirmeyahu Ben-David. American Jewry’s & Israelis’ Misconception Of “The American View”. and Yishai Fleisher The clash of American liberal Jewry and Israeli nationalism). A sojourner isn’t the same as…

American Jewry’s & Israelis’ Misconception Of “The American View”

Response to Prof. Abraham Ben-Tzvi in Israel ha-Yom (2019.05.03). Most of what Prof. Ben-Tzvi writes here is accurate and well-reasoned. However, his “backdrop” view of “Americans’ perceptions” of Israel, upon which he depends as a premise to inform his subsequent reasoning, is wildly skewed by his own, Jewish, misperception of mainstream Americans’ view of Israel(is)–which…

Israel’s Nation-State Law—The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good The modern state of Israel was conceived in answer to the socialist (Nazi) Shoah after WW-II, as a refuge-home for Jews globally; security against future threats of annihilation of Jews. Thus, the Nation-State Law, formally and officially defining Israel as such, is good. The archeological evidence found throughout Israel pre-dates Islam, Christianity—and Jews!…
