- Reviewed by a New Yorker who critiques books at Amazon.com
under the pen name, "Happy Daze 11" 9-8-8
- As opposed to some of the 'non-reviews' posted on this
book, I will actually review it from having knocked back this behemoth
over my vacation week. Hoffman's latest work eclipses everything he has
done to date. When Hoffman says he has spent more than a decade researching
the Talmud and historical Orthodox writers and writings, he is not kidding.
The extensive footnoting and source material he quotes from and cites would
take 10 years to digest, even if you were a full time student. Books this
well documented are nominated for literary awards, as this one should be.
- What this book is: Orthodox sages and rabbis talking
about God, other rabbis and their flocks, and non-Jews, in their own books.
99% of the Talmudic source material referred to comes from the works of
the Talmudic sages and various grand rabbis themselves. You get a sprinkling
of quotes to major Israeli and American newspapers as well. Nothing this
book refers to was culled from any non-Jewish source.
- What this book is not: anti-Jewish, or an argument for
any violence or maltreatment or legal restriction of or upon the Jewish
community. If anything, when you read this work and realize what Talmudic
tin gods really believe(d), you will rank the Talmud in a far worse category
than Mein Kampf, or any other traditional "hate" tract.
- What this book accomplishes beyond a shadow of a doubt:
I will make an analogy -- The Talmud and orthodox Talmudists are akin to
a business that keeps two sets of accounting books -- one set of books
they show to the internal revenue service (non-Jews), the "other set"
of books is known only to corporate insiders -- the "other set"
shows the true financial condition and profit margin of the "company."
Hoffman shows you the Talmudic Orthodox "other set" of books
-- what the Talmudic rabbis really say and believe about God, themselves,
their flocks, and the general non-Jewish population. What they say behind
closed doors, i.e. what they really think, write, believe and teach as
set forth in their own books. What the "other set" has, will
make you ill, angry, surprised, and disgusted. You will pity the poor souls
trapped by the Talmud.
- Hoffman shows you how two sets of books are kept, he
shows you when historically, the "other set" of books was discovered,
what happened, who discovered it and who tried to suppress it and who supported
publishing it. Sometimes it was a Protestant Reformer, sometimes it was
the Vatican. (The section of the book dealing with Luther and the Vatican
regarding the publishing of the Talmud is worth the price of the book alone.
One hundred books, both Protestant and Catholic, could be spawned from
this section alone -- as well as the Kabbalistic infiltration into the
Vatican during the Renaissance....Trad. Catholics take note.)
- The Talmudic primary source material relied upon; yes
there is legal authority to treat non-Jews as sub-humans; Yes, there is
Talmudic and religious authority from the greatest Talmudic sages for kicking,
spitting upon, cursing, killing, injuring, and stealing from non-Jews;
cursing non-Jewish houses and cemeteries, and spitting on other religious
clergy and Christian symbols is also permitted through linguistic trickery
and wholesale nullification of the Bible and the Ten Commandments.
- What "they" really believe is beyond shocking.
From the nighttime arousal positional police, obsession with female pubic
hair, women's menstrual flow, Talmudic toilet laws, the hole in the sheet
for Talmudic intercourse; even the fact that a woman giving birth to a
mentally retarded or infirm child is under lifetime suspicion for having
caused the birth defect herself by not observing the several thousand Talmudic
laws regarding menstruation, is given thorough documentation.
- Perhaps the greatest insult: that "the rebbes"
are considered to have greater moral authority than God, and in the case
of one Orthodox sect, their now-deceased rabbi has been put in a higher
position than whatever "being" they call God. I say "being
they call God" because that being is not found in the Bible -- you'd
sooner find that "being" in a Luciferian book. That rabbi was
supposed to live forever--it must have come as quite a shock to him when
he died. Hoffman could have called this book a study of ethnic megalomania.
When put in proper perspective, the Islamic sharia police in Iran pale
in comparison to the Talmudic police in Orthodox communities in the United
States and in "Israel." Women are still being beaten and kicked
to the back of the bus, only this time its not African-American Rosa Parks,
it's orthodox Judaic women in parts of "Israel." By rabbinical
decree, women can't ride bicycles either, in upstate New York. Hoffman
quotes the communities' own newspapers!
- Anyone interested in comparative religion or the intersection
of religion and modern politics needs this book on their shelf. When Hoffman
quotes a Christian scholar stating that a Talmudist taking an oath is the
"trickiest thing" because they are not bound to the oath by the
Talmud (unless certain circumstances exist), you need not wonder why there
is no real Middle East Peace process. Middle Eastern peacemakers should
read this book to learn how to deal with Talmudic oath trickery.
- Curses, demons, performing circumcisions via fellatio,
witchcraft, sorcery, necromancy, self worship, megalomania, what it boils
down to is that man-made laws and rules by evil people have been given
divine writ through the Talmud, which as Hoffman shows beyond a shadow
of a doubt, has been elevated to the status of God-given law. The laws
and rules are ridiculous and have only hurt rank and file Judaics, as well
as the whole world.
- It strikes me from reading Hoffman, as if the Talmud
is nothing but a distillation of every occult "Voodoo'" religion
that has ever existed in the world, down into one set of books called the
Talmud. Could their be anything more noble than to evangelize the Judaics
from their Talmudic creed?
