Following popular rabbi’s widely broadcast Jewish supremacist claims, Jewish groups scramble to deny racist tenets of Judaism--but what's the truth?

(National Prayer Network) -- by Rev. Ted Pike --

For centuries, critics of modern Judaism’s most sacred Scriptures, the Talmud and Zohar (Kabbalah), have charged that Gentiles are viewed by Talmudic Judaism as beasts of burden meant to serve Jews. The world has dismissed these critics as “anti-Semites.” Society and most Christians have unquestioningly accepted the official Jewish claim that the "exalted ethics of Judaism" exclude such bigoted racism.

Yet this week, one of modern Israel’s greatest rabbis confirmed every “anti-Semitic” claim. The Jewish Telegraph Agency says:

Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said that non-Jews exist to serve Jews, in his weekly Saturday night sermon. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi [Arabic, meaning lord or master] and eat,” he said to some laughter.

Yosef, the spiritual head of the Shas party and the former chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel also said that non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.

“With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” said the rabbi…
Echoed by the Anti-Defamation League’s Abe Foxman, the American Jewish Committee protested with the traditional defense that real Judaism has no racism:
Rabbi Yoseph’s remarks—suggesting outrageously that Jewish scripture asserts non-Jews exist to serve Jews—are abhorrent and an offense to human dignity and human equality…Judaism first taught the world that all individuals are created in the divine image, which helped form the basis of our moral code. A rabbi should be the first, not the last, to reflect that bedrock teaching of our tradition.
What’s the truth? When we delve into the doctrinal foundation of modern, or Rabbinic Judaism (the Talmud and Zohar) we find only agreement with Yosef. This rabbi, just turned 90, speaks from lifetime immersion in this sacred literature which, to observant Jews, far surpasses the authority of the Old Testament. Here are only a few of its many statements relegating Gentiles to the status of animals.

“God created them in the form of men for the glory of Israel. But Akum [Gentiles] were created for the sole end of ministering unto them [the Jews] day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved from this service. It is becoming to the son of a king [an Israelite] that animals in their natural form and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him.” (Talmudic treatise Midrasch Talpioth Folio 225a) [1]

“The sexual intercourse of a Goy is like to that of a beast.” (Sanhedrin 74b Tosephoth)

“The seed of a Goy is worth the same of that of a beast.” (Kethoboth 36)

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, etc. (Gen. III.1) ‘more subtle,’ that is toward evil; ‘than all the beasts’ that is, the idolatrous people of the earth. For they are the children of the ancient serpent which seduced Eve.” (Zohar I, 28b)

"'Living soul' designates Israel because they are children to the Almighty, and their souls, which are holy, come from Him. From whence, then, come the souls of other people? R. Eliezer said: ‘They obtained souls from those sides of the left which convey impurity, and therefore they are all impure and defile all those who have contact with them.” AND THE LORD SAID, LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH LIVING SOUL, ETC. “This includes all the other animals (except man), each after its kind. R. Eliezer said: ‘The repetition of the word “after its kind” confirms what we have said before, that “living soul” refers to Israel who have holy living souls from above and “cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth” are the other peoples who are not “living soul” but who are as we have said.’" (Zohar, Bereshith 47a) [2]

"And the Lord God formed man. 'Man' here refers to Israel whom God shaped at that time for both this world and for the next world." (I, Bereshith 26a)… "'Living soul' refers to Israel who have holy living souls from above and 'cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth' to the other peoples who are not 'living soul'…." (I, Bereshith 47a) [3]

“The Nokhrim [Gentiles] are not rendered unclean by a burial, for it is said: Ye are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture; ye are men. You are thus called men but not the Nokhrim.” (Talmud, Yebamoth 61a)

The Talmud, Chagigah 15b says that a Jew, despite the sins he may commit, is nevertheless always good—just as the dirt on a nut only contaminates the shell while the kernel remains pure. Thus, Gentiles, as Rabbi Yosef contends, as “animals which have the form of men,” exist to serve the exalted Jew. Babba Bathra 54b says “all things pertaining to the Goyim are like a desert; the first person [Jew] to come along and take them can claim them as his own.”

Just as a livestock owner has the right to slaughter his animals, so the Talmud decrees to Jews the right to kill Gentiles. Agreeing with Rabbi Yosef that Gentiles are donkeys, "The ass means non-Jew, who is to be redeemed by the offering of a lamb, which is the dispersed sheep of Israel. But if he refuses to be redeemed, then break his skull…They should be taken out of the book of the living…" (Zohar II, 43a) "Happy will be the lot of Israel, whom the Holy One, blessed be He, has chosen from amongst the goyim of whom the Scriptures say: 'Their work is vanity, it is an illusion at which we must laugh: they will 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 exist, even as it is written: 'The Lord alone will appear great on that day.' [4] Zohar I 25a says, “The people of the earth are idolaters, and this has been written about them: ‘Let them be wiped off the face of the earth. Destroy the memory of the Amalekites.’” And Zohar I 38b and 39a say, “And the palaces of the fourth heaven are those who lamented over Sion and Jerusalem and all those who destroyed idolatrous nations. And those who killed off people who worship idols are clothed in purple garments so that they may be recognized and honored.”

Solving “The Arab Problem”

Such racist, dehumanizing teachings from rabbinic Judaism’s most sacred literature deeply motivate the Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox sectors of modern Israel, particularly the settlement movement...MORE...LINK
Who's lying about racist tenets of Jewish religion, pious Rabbi Yosef (above), or opportunistic Jewish demagogue Abe Foxman?

He was the former Chief Rabbinate of Israel who makes these comments. That like an ex pope making this statement. Foxman has no credibility, he's running on fumes.
