Voltaire on the Jews

(Compiled by Chris Moore)

''They are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race...

''You have surpassed all nations in impertinent fables, in bad conduct and in barbarism. You deserve to be punished, for this is your destiny.'' Source

"The Jewish nation dares to display an irreconcilable hatred toward all nations, and revolts against all masters; always superstitious, always greedy for the well-being enjoyed by others, always barbarous -- cringing in misfortune and insolent in prosperity." Source

On another occasion Voltaire charged that "the Jew does not belong to any place except that place which he makes money; would he not just as easily betray the King on behalf of the Emperor as he would the Emperor for the King?" (Katz, 44). Thirty of 118 of Voltaire's essays in his Dictionary of Philosophy address Jews, usually disparagingly. Voltaire calls Jews "our masters and our enemies ... whom we detest ... the most abominable people in the world." Source

"If we read the history of the Jews written by an author of another nation, we would have sorrow to believe that there were indeed fugitive people of Egypt which came by express order from God immoler seven or eight small nations that they didn't know; to cut the throat without mercy of a woman, old men and children with the udder, and to reserve only the small girls; that these holy people were punished of his God when it had been enough criminal to save only one man devoted to the anathema. We would not believe that so abominable people (Jews) had been able to exist on the earth. But as this nation itself brings back all its facts in its holy books to us, it should be believed. —Voltaire, Essai sur les mœurs (1756) Tome 1, pages 158–159

"[The Jewish nation] dares spread an irreconcilable hatred against all nations; it revolts against all its masters. Always superstitious, always avid of the well-being enjoyed by others, always barbarous, crawling in misfortune, and insolent in prosperity. Here are what were the Jews in the eyes of the Greeks and the Romans who could read their books. —Voltaire, Essai sur les mœurs (1756) Tome 1, page 186

"If these Ismaélites (Arabs) resembled to the Jews by the enthusiasm and the thirst for plundering, they were prodigiously higher by courage, by the nobility of soul, by the magnanimity: their history, or true or fabulous, before Mahomet, is filled of examples of friendship, such as Greece invented some in the fables of Pilade and Oreste, of Thésée and Pirithous. The history of Barmécides is only one continuation of amazing generosities which raise the heart. These features characterize a nation. We do not see on the contrary, in all annals of the Hebrew people, no generous action. They do not know nor hospitality, nor liberality, nor leniency. Their sovereign happiness is to exert wear with the foreigners; and this spirit of wear, principle of any cowardice, is so natural in their hearts, that it is the continual object of the figures that they employ in the species of eloquence which is proper for them. Their glory is to put at fire and blood the small villages they can seize. They cut the throat of the old men and the children; they hold only the girls nubiles; they assassinate their Masters when they are slaves; they can never forgive when they are victorious: they are enemy of the human mankind. No courtesy, no science, no art improved in any time, in this atrocious nation. —Voltaire, Essai sur les mœurs (1756) Tome 2, page 83

"You seem to me to be the maddest of the lot. The Kaffirs, the Hottentots, and the Negroes of Guinea are much more reasonable and more honest people than your ancestors, the Jews. You have surpassed all nations in impertinent fables in bad conduct and in barbarism. You deserve to be punished, for this is your destiny.[2] —Voltaire, From a letter to a Jew who had written to him, complaining of his antisemitism in L'Essai sur le Moeurs

"… [Jews] are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race.[2] —Voltaire, Lettres de Memmius a Ciceron (1771)

"I know that there are some Jews in the English colonies. These marranos go wherever there is money to be made... But whether these circumcised who sell old clothes claim that they are of the tribe of Naphtali or Issachar is not of the slightest importance. They are, simply, the biggest scoundrels who have ever dirtied the face of the earth." —Voltaire, Letter to Jean-Baptiste Nicolas de Lisle de Sales, December 15, 1773. Correspondance. 86:166

Chris Moore comments:

Whether the Holocaust truly happened the way in which our Zionist masters and their corrupt collaborators have indoctrinated us or not, it's clear that the most profound Enlightenment thinkers (e.g. Voltaire above, or Immanuel Kant HERE) had serious issues with Jewry, just as did the most profound Christian thinkers before them.

I raise the Holocaust because, similar to the questionable narrative of the 9/11 attacks which was used to indict the entirety of Islam, the Holocaust has been used as a pretense to not only discredit Christendom, but discredit the Enlightenment as well (and line the pockets of those who dwell in the war profiteering class, too).

And true, in retrospect, certain facets of the Enlightenment have indeed been poorly implemented. But is this the fault of the Enlightenment thinkers and their Christian intellectual forbears, or is it because anti-Christian, hard core Jewish supremacist, racist and greedy elements of Jewry (Zionists) and their political, material, intellectual and spiritual collaborators have refused to get with the Western Civilization program, and indeed sought to sabotage it at every turn?

Might we be far closer to world harmony, peace and prosperity by now, (in the West via Christendom and the consequential Christian-modeled Enlightenment, in the East perhaps via Buddhism) but for these opportunistic, neoliberal money-worshippers, and pathologically aggressive Zionist saboteurs?

It really feels hopless, because no matter how many famous people are honest about the zionists, they'll either be assassinated or simply and blindly antisemitic. And these stupid white supremacist groups supporting the conspiracy theory aren't helping. They are immediately labeled racists Hicks, and then if they say they believe in a Jewish conspiracy, then it's immediately considered untrue, because "well if the aryan brotherhood believes it it just CAN'T be true!" and that gives Zionist shills like alex Jones a solid opportunity to avoid zionism and keep up with the whole "satanic anti religious illuminati" which makes any movement he supports collapses (9/11 truth movement, etc) zionists of all religions are filthy greedy power hungry sneaky scum. They secretly infiltrate and infest the underground dwellings of a society like sewer rats, collapse the foundations of said infested society at its core columns of support like termites, reach up and snatch positions of power (banking, media, politics) as its collapsing to make a last minute good old fashioned Talmud inspired bigotry profit fraud against the goyim (cattle) , and finally delivers a final blow against the leaders of the Society and assassinates them like cobra. And then that society is left in dust, the zionists move on, rewrite the history books, and continue the saga, all based on their radical belief that a 1500 year old book written by a mass murderer of his own people (Abraham and moses) telling them that all Jews should return to that tiny miserable strip of desert land called israel

I think your analysis is the best thought-out I have seen, in all my travels online. There are inaccuracies, specifically as regards Israel's God's treatment of them. What Yahweh wanted was to select a human agency through which to realize the delivery of the promised "seed", who would eventually deliver a lethal blow to the serpent, God's chief Adversary. (Gen.3:15) Abraham was chosen as one who would, eventually produce for ALL mankind a blessing, based on the eventual activity of his "seed". Through whom was this "seed" produced? Israel. Were they ever declared perfect by God? Far from it! He even foretold that they would be up for sale as slaves, but that there would be no buyer.... and that was expressed as early on as Deuteronomy! Even then, He knew what sort of nation He was dealing with. Their shortcomings were detailed over and over again by the prophets leading up to and including Jesus, God's own son, whom they killed, and whose blood they readily asked to be placed on their heads. There could not be a more obvious evidence of the withdrawal of favor on the part of Yahweh, who knows how to deliver His own, than what happened to the Jews when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem, in the first century. With all that he and his God and Father had invested in them during his human and pre-human existence, Jesus could only weep at the dire prospects they were about to suffer as his martyrdom at their hands was drawing near. So he told Jerusalem "Your house is abandoned to you". So it remains to this day. The activity of SPIRITUAL ISRAEL, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. Shalom.
