The Jews and Their Beliefs
By the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
“Do you hear, Jew, do you know that your principality together with the temple and
priesthood are destroyed now for 1460 years? For this year, as we Christians write after
the birth of Christ 1543, it is exactly 1469 years, and is thus going on 1500 years since
Vespasianus and Titus destroyed Jerusalem and expelled the Jews from it.”
“For no one should think of God so terrible that He would punish his own nation so
unmercifully and keep silent by neither comforting words nor indicating the duration or
end of such misery!
“Therefore, this wrath leads to the conclusion that the Jews are certainly rejected by
God and are not His people anymore, and He also is not their God anymore; according
to the passage, Hosea 1:9 ‘Lo, Ammi, You are not my people, so also am I not your God’.
“From childhood they have been brought up with poison and hatred against our Lord.
“They hold one principle on which they depend. That is, they are born of the highest
people on earth.
“We (Goyim [cattle]) are not human beings in their sight, but hardly worthy to be
regarded as worms.
“They praise and thank God, first, that they are human beings and not animals;
secondly, that they are Israelites and not Goyim (heathen); thirdly, that they were created
as Men and not as Women”. (Ideas copied from Plato)
“Our Lord also calls them “Vipers in John 8:39: “If ye were Abraham’s children, ye
would do the works of Abraham.” Verse 44: “Ye are of your father, the Devil”.
(Jesus was born of a Jewish mother, Mary, but He rejected the Oral and Written
traditions of the Talmud, and called on His followers to follow only the commandments of
the Torah. The Palestinian Talmud was composed between 400 B.C.-____; and the
Babylonian Talmud between ____- and ____)
“They are boastful, proud fools who…praise themselves alone and despise and
condemn the whole world in their schools, prayers, and teachings.
“”Whenever you see or think about a Jew, say to yourself as follows: Behold, the mouth
which I see there has every Saturday cursed, execrated, and spit upon my dear Lord,
Jesus Christ who has redeemed me with His precious blood; and also prayed and cursed
before God that I, my wife and children, and all Christians should be stabbed and perish
in the most miserable manner—would like to do so himself if he could be that he might
come into possession of our goods.”
“Here in Wittenberg we began to read Hebrew. We Christians were reading their
books”. (Luther was acquainted with the Talmud and Schulchan-Aruch. The earliest
Talmud was written about 400 B.C., so Jesus was also knowledgeable about its contents).
“Therefore know, my dear Christian, that next to the Devil you have no more bitter,
more poisonous, more vehement an enemy than a real Jew who earnestly desires to be a
“Do not their Talmud and 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
“Thus have ye made the Commandment of God of none effect by your tradition”
“They are so blinded that they do not only practice usury but teach it as a right which
God had commanded them through Moses”; i.e. Deut 23:20 “unto a stranger thou
mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury”.
(Christians at that time did not charge interest on loans, as Moslems do not do
today, following the commandment in Lev. 25:37 “Thou shalt not give him thy money
“I see in writings how they curse us Goyim and wish us all evil in their schools and
“Thus they call Him (Jesus) the child of a whore and His mother, Mary, a whore, whom
she had in adultery with a smith.”
“Now tell me, do they not have great cause to hate us cursed Goyim, to curse us and
seek our final, thorough and eternal ruin?”
(“That we permit them to dwell among us without charge, protect their schools, houses,
body and goods,….and help them confidently to squeeze from us our money and goods,
and in addition to mock us and spit on us, hoping finally to overcome us and slay all of us
for such great sin and take away all of our goods, as they daily pray for.”)
Excepts from “Jewish History, Jewish Religion”
By Israel Jew Israel Shahak
“those passages in the Talmud and the talmudic literature which are specifically anti-
Christian or more generally anti-Gentile.
“It must be admitted at the outset that the Talmud and the talmudic literature—quite
apart from the general anti-Gentile streak that runs through them, contain very offensive
statements and precepts directed specifically against Christianity. For example, in
addition to a series of scurrilous sexual allegations against Jesus, the Talmud states that
his punishment in hell is to be immersed in boiling excrement.
“Or the precept that Jews are instructed to burn, publicly if possible, any copy of the
New Testament that comes into their hands.
“Thus on 23 March 1980 hundred of copies of the New Testament were publicly and
ceremonially burnt in Jerusalem under the auspices of Yad Le’akhim, a Jewish religious
organization subsidized by the Israeli Ministry of Religion.
“The Editio Princeps of the complete Code of Talmudic Law, Maimonides Mishneh
Torah, [is] replete not only with the most offensive precepts against all Gentiles but also
with explicit attacks on Christianity and on Jesus (after whose name the author adds
piously, ‘May the name of the wicked perish.’
In numerous cases, Shahak shows, general terms as “thy fellow”, “stranger” or even
“man” are taken to have an exclusivist and chauvinistic meaning. The famous verse
“Thou shalt love thy fellow as thyself” (Lev. 19:18) is undermined by classical (and
present day Orthodox) Judaism “as an injunction to love one’s fellow Jew, not any fellow
human. Similarly, the verse ‘neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy fellow (Lev.
19”16) is supposed to mean that one must not stand idly by when the life (‘blood’) of a
fellow Jew is in danger; but a Jew…. is in general forbidden to save the life of a Gentile,
because ‘he is not thy fellow.’”
Many contemporary Israaeli policies refer to Talmudic rules. Thus, Shahak declares,
“The Halakah forbids Jews to sell immovable property—fields and houses—in the Land
of Israel to Gentiles. It is therefore clear that—exactly as the leaders of Gush Emunim
say—the whole question of how the Palestinians ought to be treated is, according to the
Halakah, simply a question of Jewish power; if Jews have sufficient power then it is their
religious duty to expel the Palestinians…..Mainonides declares; ‘When the Jews are more
powerful than the Gentiles we are forbidden to let an idolater among us; even a
temporary or itinerant trader shall not be allowed to pass through our land.”
The Babylonian Talmud, written in Aramaic and Hebrew, with some Greek and Persian
words, has been translated into English and published in the Soncino Talmud, a copy of
which is located in the New York City Library at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue. It has
about 35 volumes, thus is larger than the Encyclopedia Britannica. It is also available on
Rabbinical Judaism teaches that the Oral Law was given to Moses on Mount Sinai. This
Oral Law, the Halakhoth, was followed by the Pharisees of Jesus’ time, and were written
down after 70 A.D. as the Mishna, which then became the Palestinian and Babylonian
The Talmud and talmudic literature contain very offensive statements and precepts
directed specifically against Christianity.
The Talmud states that Jesus’ punishment in hell is to be immersed in boiling excrement.
The Talmud instructs Jews to burn, publicly if possible, any copy of the New Testament
that comes into their hands.

explicit attacks on Christianity and on Jesus I.e. “May the name of the wicked perish”.
When passing near a gentile cemetery, every Jew is enjoined to curse the mothers of
In the Book of Knowledge by Maimonides it is stated that Jewish infidels are to be
exterminated; infidels such as Jesus of Nazareth and his pupils.
Maimonides is also an anti-black racist. In his “Guide to the Perplexed” he writes that
the nature of blacks (kushim) is like the nature of mute animals, and according to his
opinion they are not on the level of human beings, and their level among existing things
is below that of a man and above that of a monkey.
Leo Rosen in his book “The Joys of Yiddish” writes that “shiksa”, the feminine form of
“shaygets”, a Gentile boy, comes from the Hebrew word “sheqetz” which means an
unclean animal, a loathsome creature, an abomination.
To the Hasidic Jews, all non-Jews are totally satanic creatures in whom there is
absolutely nothing good. All of creation was created solely for the sake of the Jews. In the
Israeli press, the Hasidic leaders constantly publish the most rabid bloodthirsty
statements and exhortations against all Arabs.
The legal interpretation of sacred texts, of religious acts and obligations, is rigidly fixed
by the Talmud, rather than by the Bible itself, sometimes in a way quite distinct from, or
contrary to, their literal meaning.

“Some of the Turks (i.e. the Mongol race) and the nomads in the North, and the Blacks
and the nomads in the South and those who resemble them in our climates. And their
nature is like the nature of mute animals, and according to my opinion they are not on
the level of human beings, and their level among existing things is below that of a man
and above that of a monkey, because they have the image and the resemblance of a
man more than a monkey does” [they cannot the true worship of God]

“and from this learn ye, that it is forbidden to heal a Gentile even for payment….”
“but if you fear him or his hostility, cure him for payment….even gratis, if it is unavoidable”
“He who has carnal knowledge of the wife of a Gentile is not liable to the death penalty,
for it is written ‘thy fellow’s wife rather than the alien’s wife, and even the precept that a
man ‘shall cleave unto his wife’ which is addressed to the Gentiles does not apply to a
Jew, just there is no matrimony for a heathen, and although a married Gentile woman is
forbidden to the Gentiles, in any case a Jew is exempted”
”If a Jew has coitus with a Gentile woman, whether she be a child of three or an adult,
whether married or unmarried, and even if he is a minor aged only nine years and one
day—because he had wilful coitus with her, she must be killed, as is the case with a
beast, because through her a Jew got into trouble”
The Halakhah forbids Jews to sell immovable property—fields and houses—in the Land
of Israel to Gentiles.

All the ancient Canaanites and other nations who lived in Palestine before its conquest
by Joshua must be utterly exterminated according to the Talmud.
In the Jewish weekday prayer it reads “and may be apostates have no hope, and all the
Christians perish instantly”.
The Talmud lays down that a Jew who passes near an inhabited non-Jewish dwelling
must ask God to destroy it.

All Gentile women are presumed by the Halakhah to be prostitutes.
For the daily prayers, a Jewish man thanks God for making him a Jew.
This is followed by a blessing “for not making me a slave”. For males, he must next add a

Much is made of obeying the Ten Commandments, and the 613 laws in the Bible.
Nothing is made of the Biblical record of breaking the Ten Commandments, nor the
current methods of breaking them.
(1) I AM THE LORD THY GOD
Most “Jews” are secular, whatever that means ?????
(3) REMEMBER THE SABBATH, TO KEEP IT HOLY
Make an “eruh”, so you can walk and drive further than proscribed on the sabbath.
Hire a gentile to turn on the lights and cook for you, even if the commandment
forbids your servants to work on the sabbath.
(4) THOU SHALT NOT KILL
King David had one of his generals killed in battle so he could have the man’s wife.
Constantly murdering Palestinians

For instance, the daughters of Lot (the nephew of Abraham) had sex with their father.
Judah (Judaism) patronized a prostitute. Moses married a shiksa (a gentile woman,
considered equal to a prostitute).
Solomon was known for his many wives and concubines
(6) THOU SHALT NOT STEAL
Jacob, one of the founders of Judaism, practiced deception against his brother Esau,
and stole his father’s blessing and inheritance with the connivance of his mother.
Zionists have stolen the lands, farms, homes, furnishings, silverware from the
Palestinians, and refuse to return them.
(7) THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THY NEIGHBOR
All Zionist propaganda is false.
(8, 9, 10) THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR’S HOUSE
Zionists have coveted everything that belongs to the Palestinians, as well as the
Egyptians, the Jordanians, the Lebanese and the Syrians.
