US National Security Advisor - Greedy Jews

Take your kvittel to Rashi in Meron for Lag B'Omer? Yes we can.

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths- type article here -

Draw your own conclusion. The speaker is the National Security Advisor of the United States of America. See comments UNDER the video.



I note the news report on this had these choice comments, among others...

Actually, making light of what J3ws do to countries is no laughing matter. Look at Bernanke or Goldman Sachs. They were destroying Germany in much the same way until they simply said “no” and quickly turned Germany in to a world superpower. We could do the same here if you would get over your perception Jews are somehow above reproach. Sounds like most already have. Just think how quickly we could turn things around if we weren’t paying “tribute” to Israel (for no good reason) and stopped fighting their wars for them in the Middle East! Gas prices would go down again and our economy would correct itself. Then we reject the J3w merchant’s BS of “Free Trade” and stop importing everything from elsewhere. All you have to do is stand up with your neighbors and say “no more!”

Oh my goodness.
How many more billions in
extortion will Israel
demand from us now because
of this joke?!

The Talmud itself teaches
Jews to steal from gentiles,
in no uncertain terms.

If someone is offended by the joke, first the person should
condemn the Talmudic teaching that appears to be the justification for some rather unsavory and bigoted behavior toward goyim by many Jews – then we can discuss the joke.

Jews don’t get to teach their children racial supremacy and that stealing from gentiles is ok – only to turnaround and accuse gentiles of being bigoted for objecting to being targeted as a goy and subsequently ripped off.

Brush up on your Talmud.

Sanhedrin 57a . A Jew need not pay a gentile the wages owed him for work.

Baba Mezia 24a . If a Jew finds an object lost by a gentile (“heathen”) it does not have to be returned.

Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a gentile, there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.

Baba Kamma 37b. The gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.”


I've been asked to clarify - the Talmudic quotes are taken out of context and/or inaccurate.

A few comments:

1) Yes, the joke is quite offensive and annoying. However, these jokes are hardly surprising as this is the stereotype that the rest of the world has of us. The behavior of various groups of Jews and their involvement in financial crimes only makes it worse. Maybe if we stopped breaking the law and started openly condemning those who do so, the stereotype might dissapear.

2) Clearly these quotes from the talmud are taken out of context; however, how else is someone who has no background in anything remotely Jewish supposed to understand it? Of course they're going to take it literally!

But then again, I recognize that once an anti-Semite, always an anti-Semite

It would be a good idea for someone (Akiva?) to repost those Talmudic quotes and explain them correctly, to correct all the mis-information on the internet.
I would do it myself, but I don't have the knowledge.
I think Gil Student may have already done so, somewhere, but I don't have the link.
Just saying....

Here's Rabbi Student's webpage -- looks very useful.

I listened to the joke in its entirety and I don't hear anything remotely anti-Semitic in there. It's the kind of joke that we Jews tell each other all the time. (see: http://www.oldjewstellingjokes.com) It's not denigrating Jews, if anything, it's poking fun at the non-Jew.

Neshama said...

Gee Akiva, don't understand why you posted those quotes from our Holy Torah, when it is NOT OK to cheat, steal, withhold wages, etc when dealing with non-Jews.

I know you don't ascribe to these things .... please make it clear.

This is very misleading to some of your readers who are not Jewish and look to you (and Reb Nati) for the emes???

ChaimJ said...

I really do not think it was offensive. Heard it many times. Stop being so sensitive.

I stated the following in my comments to the blog post "Can You Ignore It?"

"No doubt about it. It's getting worse in the States. Even those racists who were more or less 'in the closet' are coming out.... Even educated people, whom one might brand as being liberal, are talking some serious smack these days."

When government officials feel free to tell such jokes in public, then what must they be saying in private and what must they be hiding in their heart?

It's time to leave the US, IMO. May HaShem grant every Jew the means and wherewithal to escape the US and settle in Israel before it's too late. Why? Because things aren't improving here and as things get worse the Nations are going to take it out on the Jews, like they always do.

Akiva said...

Listen, the joke's a good one (though he delivers it poorly) and in and of itself not particularly offensive. Oh, I can interpret it in mean ways if I want.

But that's not the point. In this day and age when one certainly couldn't get up and tell a joke about an African American, or a Polish American, or an Irish American, or an Italian American, SUDDENLY it's acceptable to tell a joke about a Jew.

And we're not talking about some Hollywood actor making a societal faux pax. We're talking about the U.S. National Security Advisor.

And yes, that signals a change in internal discussions about Jews when such things become external.

As a noahide i dont find it funny. in fact i find it quite disgusting.
it is very obvious there is a concerted effort to highlight some errors made by jews, which is unfortunate and definitely not in accordance to their torah laws.

Neshama said...

It is certainly a biased joke and A-S also, because the logic of it is absurd.
First of all, A-Q knows the desert better than anyone so "making him the victim" is a misnomer. This is reverse relevance: making the arabs the victims!

This is the way they are viewing the ME problem; it reflects the world's opinion that Israel is causing the ME problem.

Very reflective of the NEW U.S., UN, M.E. POLICY
