Quotes From the Talmud

“Does not their Talmud say, and do not their rabbis write, that it is no sin to kill if a Jew kills a heathen, but it is a sin if he kills a brother in Israel? It is no sin if he does not keep his oath to a heathen. Therefore, to steal and rob, as they do with their usury, from a heathen is a divine service. For they hold that they cannot be too hard on us nor sin against us, because they are of the noble blood and circumcised saints; we, however, are cursed goyim. And they are the masters of the world, and we are their servants, yea, their cattle … Should someone think that I am saying too much, I am not saying too much, but much too little. For I see in their writings how they curse us goyim and wish us all evil in their schools and their prayers.”
--Martin Luther, founder of Protestantism

The Great Reformer, Martin Luther (1483-1546), learned Hebrew in order to read Biblical texts in the original language. As he did so he also read the Talmud, the holy book of Judaism. What he saw there so enraged him that he set out to warn the people of Jewish beliefs. For this the father of Protestantism is today denounced as “an anti-Semite” by the media and therefore by Christian leaders.

Yet anyone who reads Talmudic texts will understand Luther’s warning. The Talmud calls non-Jews not only Gentiles but “goyim,” meaning cattle. Jews are forbidden from eating from the same plate or drinking from the same wine as goyim because non-Jews are unclean. Jews are in every way encouraged to treat non-Jews as inferior beings that should be exploited for the benefit of Jews. This is a religion designed to justify exploitation.

Here follow quotes from the Talmud. Many of them appear in Jewish Professor Israel Shahak’s book “Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of 3,000 Years”. Israel Shahak wishes for Jews to abandon their chauvinistic behavior, which he believes sets all Jews in danger for retaliation when the Gentiles will inevitable turn against them. In particular he points out how Judaism is used to justify the killing of Palestinian civilians and for the steady theft of the last 22 percent of Palestinian land.

When did you ever hear any of this quotes in documentaries, in the press, or in school? It is all right to criticize Christianity; it is all right to use quotes from the Koran, when Middle Easterners resist Israeli control; but it is never allowed to show what Jews have said among themselves for millennia.

Talmud Quotes

A heathen who studies the Torah deserves death, for it is written, Moses commanded us a law for an inheritance.
Sanhedrin 59a

We beg Thee, O Lord, indict Thy wrath on the nations not believing in Thee, and not calling on Thy name. Let down Thy wrath on them and inflict them with Thy wrath. Drive them away in Thy wrath and crush them into pieces. Take away, O Lord, all bone from them. In a moment indict all disbelievers. Destroy in a moment all foes of Thy nation. Draw out with the root, disperse and ruin unworthy nations. Destroy them! Destroy them immediately, in this very moment!
Zohar, Toldoth Noah 63b

When the Messiah comes, every Jew will have 2800 slaves.
Simeon Haddarsen, fol. 56-D

When a Jew has a Gentile in his clutches, another Jew may go to the same Gentile, lend him money and in turn deceive him, so that the Gentile shall be ruined. For the property of a Gentile, according to our law, belongs to no one, and the first Jew that passes has full right to seize it.
Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 156
If it can be proven that someone has given the money of Israelites to the Goyim, a way must be found after prudent consideration to wipe him off the face of the earth.
Choschen Hamm 388, 15
Happy will be the lost of Israel, whom the Holy One, blessed be He, has chosen from amongst the Goyim, of whom the Scriptures say: "Their work is but vanity, it is an illusion at which we must laugh; they will all perish when God visits them in His wrath." At the moment when the Holy One, blessed be He, will exterminate all the Goyim of the world, Israel alone will subsist, even as it is written: The Lord alone will appear great on that day!
Zohar, Vayshlah 177b

That the Jewish nation is the only nation selected by God, while all the remaining ones are contemptible and hateful.

That all property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which consequently is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples. An orthodox Jew is not bound to observe principles of morality towards people of other tribes. He may act contrary to morality, if profitable to himself or to Jews in general.
A Jew may rob a Goy, he may cheat him over a bill, which should not be perceived by him, otherwise the name of God would become dishonoured.
Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat, 348

If a goy killed a goy or a Jew he is responsible, but if a Jew killed a goy he is not responsible.
Tosefta, Aboda Zara, VIII, 5

Has it not been taught: “With respect to robbery – if one stole or robbed or seized a beautiful woman, or committed similar offences, if these were perpetrated by one Cuthean [non-Jew] against another, what is taken must not be kept, and likewise the theft of an Israelite by a Cuthean, but that of a Cuthean by an Israelite may be retained?”
Sanhedrin 57a
Everyone who sheds the blood of the impious [non-Jews] is as acceptable to God as he who offers a sacrifice to God.
Yalkut 245c

Extermination of the Christians is a necessary sacrifice.
Zohar, Shemoth

Even the best of the Goyim should be killed. (“Tob shebbe goyyim harog.”)
Soferim 15, rule 10

Why then should we not leave female animals alone with female heathens? said Mar 'Ukba b. Hama: Because heathens frequent their neighbours' wives, and should one by chance not find her at home, and find the cattle there, he might use it immorally. You may also say that even if he should find her at home he might use the animal, as a Master has said: Heathens prefer the cattle of Israelites to their own wives, for R. Johanan said: When the serpent came unto Eve he infused filthy lust into her.
Avodah Zarah 22a-b

All Israelites will have a part in the future world.... The Goyim, at the end of the world will be handed over to the angel Duma and sent down to hell.
Zohar, Shemoth, Toldoth Noah, Lekh-Lekha

Jehovah created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night.
Midrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L

Everything a Jew needs for his church ritual no goy is permitted to manufacture, but only a Jew, because this must be manufactured by human beings and the Jew is not permitted to consider the goyim as human beings.
Schulchan Oruch, Orach Chaim 14, 20, 32, 33, 39

A Jew may do to a non-Jewess what he can do. He may treat her as he treats a piece of meat.
Hadarine, 20, B; Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348
A Jew may violate but not marry a non-Jewish girl.
Gad. Shas. 2:2
A male goy after nine years and one day old, and a girl after three years and one day old, are considered filthy.
Pereferkowicz, Talmud t.v., p. 11
R. Joseph said: Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition [intercourse], and if her deceased husband's brother cohabits with her, she becomes his.
Sanhedrin 55b

Raba said. It means this: When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this [three years old], it is as if one puts the finger into the eye; but when a small boy has intercourse with a grown-up woman he makes her as 'a girl who is injured by a piece of wood.'...
Kethuboth 11b

[The above quote is part of a debate about virginity, which is considered highly prized. Grown men can have sex with girls younger than three years because it is believed that virginity grows back again for children. When one “puts the finger into the eye” tears come back again and again. The text also means that a grown woman doesn’t lose her virginity if she has sex with a small boy. There is a long debate about sex with children in the Talmud, focusing on when it can be done without the child losing its virginity. It also says some rabbis believe you can have sodomy with a small child younger than nine, another rabbi says younger than three. Not surprisingly, rape of children is common among Orthodox Jews; not that you would hear about it from the media, while they are always eager to talk about pedophile Catholic priests.]

It was taught: Rabbi Judah used to say, A man is bound to say the following three blessings daily: "Blessed art thou … who hast not made me a heathen … who hast not made me a woman; and ... who hast not made me a brutish man. Rabbi Ahab Jacob once overheard his son saying “Blessed art thou ... who hast not made me a brutish man,” whereupon he said to him, “And this too!” Said the other, “Then what blessing should I say instead?” He replied ... “who hast not made me a slave.” “And is not that the same as a woman?” – “A slave is more contemptible.”
Menachoth 43b-44a

Show no mercy to the Goyim.
Hilkkoth Akum X1

A Jew is forbidden to drink from a glass of wine which a Gentile has touched, because the touch has made the wine unclean.
Schulchan Aruch, Johre Deah, 122

More From Judaism

Israel Shahak says that according to the Talmud, Jesus was the son of a prostitute and a Roman soldier. Jesus became a radical rabbi student, preaching idolatry, and was therefore thrown off the roof of the school building, killing him. He did not die on the cross. He is currently immersed in a pit of excrement in hell.

What would Christians think if they knew this?

But Christians never hear of it, because the media don’t want it to be known. Instead we hear of our “Judeo-Christian” heritage and Judeo-Christian beliefs. It has gone so far that should anyone publicly talk of “our Christian” heritage only, it would be considered racist by many.

Israel Shahak also says that in the Middle Ages rabbis taught Jews to spit whenever they passed by a church. They were advised to mask it as a cough, covering the mouth with one hand. Even after the ghetto laws were abolished and Jews could move freely, rabbis told them not to live among non-Jews, and so most of them stayed in the ghettos.

Israelis today do not use the plus sign in school or elsewhere, because it looks like the cross. Instead they use a decapitated cross, as if cutting off the head of Christ. When Greek-Orthodox priests walk in procession down Golgotha, carrying a wooden replica of the cross, Jews line up to spit at them and shout insults at them.

By contrast, around Christmas the Palestinian president often visits the Nativity Church in Bethlehem together with cheering Christian Palestinians. A large minority of Palestinians are Greek Orthodox – something we never hear of. Mel Gibson’s movie The Passion of the Christ was a big hit across the Middle East (selling in the form of millions of bootleg copies from Egypt), as Jesus, called Isa, is praised as one of the holy prophets in the Koran. Not so in Israel.

The Talmud has consequences. A Jewish soldier in the early Israeli state asked a rabbi whether it was right to kill Palestinians. The rabbi replied by quoting from scripture, “The best of Gentiles, kill them; the best of snakes, smash in their brains.”

Israel Shahak notes how translations of the Talmud are often falsified, with important words removed or changed. The word for a non-Jewish woman is “shiksa,” which is watered down to meaning “blemish” in the few cases when Gentiles hear of the word. This is also the explanation found in “The Joys of Yiddish” by Leo Rosten. Shahak notes that “shiksa” actually means unclean animal, abomination.

Israel Shahak also talks about the Kol Nidre prayer, which Jews pray on the day of Yom Kippur each year. The Kol Nidre prayer is a contract with God, whereby a Jew is freed from all promises made for another year:

“All vows, obligations, oaths or anathemas, pledges of all names, which we have vowed, sworn, devoted, or bound ourselves to, from this day of atonement, until the next day of atonement (whose arrival we hope for in happiness) we repent, aforehand, of them all, they shall all be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, void and made of no effect; they shall not be binding, nor have any power; the vows shall not be reckoned as vows, the obligations shall not be obligatory, nor the oaths considered as oaths.”

This absolves Jews from another year of lying. This is absolutely unique among world religions.

When Kol Nidre is brought up (if it ever is), Jews will try to explain away its meaning, which is difficult since Kol Nidre actually means “All Vows.” Jews will not quote the prayer, because it is very clear what it says. Instead, what they come up with is typically something like this:

“Kol nidre” means “all vows”, and in this prayer, we ask G-d to annul all personal vows we may make in the next year. It refers only to vows between the person making them and G-d, such as “If I pass this test, I'll pray every day for the next 6 months!”

So it is just a way to stop Jews from making silly requests for favors – nothing to see here. How believable was that? Not very? Good.

All this may look odd, given the usual picture of Judaism presented in the media: wise, dignified, full of ancient knowledge, stoic despite persecution. As a contrast to that, this is a snapshot of real-life Orthodox Judaism: an Orthodox Jewish court in Israel sentences a dog to death by stoning, because they believed it to be the reincarnation of a secular lawyer. The stoning was to be carried out by Orthodox Jewish children. Not surprisingly, Orthodox Jews, those closest to the Jewish religion's beliefs, have the lowest average IQ of all religious groups in Israel (a country with an average IQ of 94-95).
