- Three days ago the Israeli Right wing paper The Jerusalem
Post published an exposé of the growing tendency of Orthodox Jews
in Jerusalem to spit on their Christian neighbours. ('Mouths Filled with
Hatred', By Larry Derfner The JPost, Nov. 26, 2009).
- Father Samuel Aghoyan, a senior Armenian Orthodox cleric
in Jerusalem's Old City, told the JPost "that he's been spat at by
young Haredi (God fearing religious Jews) and national Orthodox Jews 'about
15 to 20 times' in the past decade". Father Aghoyan added, "Every
single priest in this church has been spat on. It happens day and night."
- Similarly Father Athanasius, a Texas-born Franciscan
monk who heads the Christian Information Centre in Jerusalem's Old City,
said he's been spat at by Orthodox Jews "about 15 times in the last
- Jewish spitting is not exactly breaking News. I myself
have explored the issue more than once. The Israeli professor Israel Shahak
commented on Jewish hatred towards Christianity and its symbolism, suggesting
that "dishonouring Christian religious symbols is an old religious
duty in Judaism." According to Shahak, "spitting on the cross,
and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church,
have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews."
- Interestingly enough Jewish spitting has had an impact
on the European urban landscape. The following can be read in a 'Travel
Guide for Jewish Europe'.
- "In Prague's Charles Bridge, the visitor will observe
a great crucifix surrounded by huge gilded Hebrew letters that spell the
traditional Hebrew sanctification Kadosh Kadosh Kadosh Adonai Tzvaot, "Holy,
Holy, Holy is the Lord of Hosts." According to various commentators,
this piece, degrading to Jews, came about because in 1609 a Jew was accused
of desecrating the crucifix. The Jewish community was forced to pay for
putting up the Hebrew words in gold letters. Another explanation is that
a Jew spat at the cross and for this he was to be put to death as a punishment.
When this man begged for his life, the king, seeking to have good relations
with the Jews, said the Jewish community had to rectify the offence."

- Shahak maintains that "in the past, when the danger
of anti-Semitic hostility was a real one, the pious Jews were commanded
by their rabbis either to spit so that the reason for doing so would be
unknown, or to spit onto their chests, not actually on a cross or openly
before a church."
- But times are changing. In the Jewish state most Jewish
inhibitions seem to have disappeared. In Israel Jews can spit as much as
they like and on whatever they like. As we read above, in the Jewish state
it isn't just Christian symbols that are being spat on, it is actually
the Goyim in general. Far more concerning, it isn't even just kosher saliva.
It is actually everything they may find at their disposal: saliva, live
ammunition, bombs, missiles, WMD, white phosphorous, you name it, they
- In fact, spitting is not the problem. Spiting is just
a symptom of a deeply imbued cultural categorical dismissal of 'otherness'
that distinguishes Israel as a criminal state. It is also this very dismissal
of 'otherness' that stops the Israelis and their supporters around the
world from understanding the level of resentment that is mounting against
any form of Jewish nationalism.
- Hatred is a form of blindness. Jewish hatred, that is
culturally, religiously and spiritually orientated, is also a form of deafness.
This may explain the tragic consequences in which nationalist Jews fail
time after time to internalise the criticism leveled against them: against
their politics and culture. This may explain why Jews fail to grasp what
is the root cause of 'anti semitism'. Rather than being reflective and
engaging in self-mirroring, the nationalistic Jew would insist that the
problem is always somewhere else.
- As interesting as it may be, Zionism was the only modern
serious Jewish collective attempt to amend the cultural abnormalities
within Jewish culture. Early Zionism took anti Jewish criticism seriously.
It committed itself to bring about a civilized ethical person. Zionism
obviously failed completely. Yet, till the 1980's some fading voices of
"humanist Zionism", people who wanted to see the Jews setting
themselves into a peaceful nation living amongst others, could still be
heard in occupied Palestine. It may also explain why the most radical and
effective voices against Zionism and Jewish nationalism, are in fact people
who were a product of Zionist upbringing (Shahak, I. Shamir, Sand, Burg
and a few others).
- In the late 1970's a young dissident movement led by
an Israeli Refusenik Gadi Elgazi protested against serving in the occupied
territories. "Occupation Corrupts" Elgazi said. He was sent to
prison repeatedly. Elgazi and his supporters maintained that controlling
other people would have a devastating impact on the Jewish state and its
morality. They were obviously correct. Through the years Israel has become
a criminal collective, complicit in genocide. With 94% of its population
supporting the IDF measures in Gaza, there is no room for doubt, Israel
has no room amongst nations. As if this is not enough, the level of crime
within Israel is also soaring. The rate of homicidal crime is rapidly growing
and it seems as if no one there knows how to tackle the problem. Elgazi's
predictions proved to be a prophecy. The occupation turned against the
- Interestingly enough, it didn't take long before Jewish
cultural hatred towards Goyim and their symbols would turn inward and mature
into an internal Jewish war where Jews do spit on each other. The tension
within Israel's Jewish communities is rising by the day whether it is the
rapid rise of poverty or the rising social division between Israeli Jewish
communities. Seemingly, there is a growing unresolved tension between the
secular and orthodox Jews in Israel. As much as Jews can hate the Goyim,
nothing is comparable with the way and manner in which they despise each
- Channel 4, the brave British broadcaster that just 10
days ago exposed the cross-party Jewish lobby operating in the UK, did
it again. The Battle for Israel's Soul is an exposé of the feud
between Jewish communities in Israel(1). Just like in the case of the occupation
that turned eventually against the Israelis, hatred towards Goyim made
the Israelis into a vengeful collective. Naturally it didn't take long
before the Israelis would start to spit on each other.
- Watch this film:
- My message to the Palestinians is actually very simple.
Give the Israelis time. They do not need enemies. With the level of self
contempt they carry in themselves it is just a question of time before
they totally implode.
