There is nothing wrong with most Christians because they respect us
Most religions call upon their followers to improve themselves. But all religious traditions also need to scrutinize and clean up their creeds.
One such stain on Islam and Christianity is the idea Jews should improve by converting to those religions. That’s not just disrespectful, arrogant, and hateful, especially after the Holocaust. It’s worse: it’s ungratefulness. And being grateful is the basis of being religious.
It’s worse than racist Antisemitism, which is just a stain on their blazon. It’s rather a corruption of their whole possibility to be religious.
Jews gave all of humanity, no questions asked, if not the following, then at the least the basis for them: monotheism, ethics and Free Will, equality, democracy, science, humanism, Christianity, and Islam. If then followers of any of the above disrespect Jews, that’s equivalent to thanklessness.
And trying to corrupt and sink Judaism is not ‘just’ cultural genocide and an attempt to finish Hitler’s work, but also patricide, the murder of their spiritual father, the ultimate disrespect of one’s metaphysical parent.
And then, to congregate as missionaries at the Temple Mount Wall is the worst type of chutzpa. Whether you’re a follower of Moses or Mohamed or Jesus, they all preached humility and meekness, not superiority.
Christians would never dare to walk around in a mosque with their shoes on. If the Christian community were not so fragmented and disorganized, it would ex-communicate any brazen Christian who even parades as much as a crucifix close to the Holy Wall, defiling our central place of prayer.
Nobody checks if you’re Jewish when you enter, and many are clearly tourists just visiting to observe us, but don’t make yourself at home at our home. That’s colonialist, imperialist, and supremacist squatting.
Meanwhile, how can any Jew be drawn to so much disrespect, arrogance, hatred, and insensitivity? If this distortion of the greatness of humanity would be what their religion preached, how not to be revolted by it?
To add insult to injury, missionaries tend to proclaim they ‘love’ Jews. But this love is like someone said, ‘I love fish’ and then ate one. If you’d really loved fish, you’d keep it alive. They just love the feeling fish gives them.
That’s why I prefer Nazis and Antisemites. At least, they don’t try to hide passionately hating us for lied-up, illogical, or no good reason at all.
You can’t help someone the street who doesn’t want to cross the street. Jews don’t need to be saved. We’re doing just fine without—thank you. Jews believe in Free Will and a loving and fair G^d who believes in us. This is proven every day He doesn’t send the Messiah: He waits for us.
The animosity against missionaries is reported as mainly an extremely right-wing-Jewish thing. It is not. I ensure you that many mainstream Orthodox Jews find anything that stinks as the stakes of the Inquisition, the tracks of the Crusaders, and the Nazi Holocaust sickening.
I call upon any goody two-shoes who want ‘respect for all sides’ to learn to reject false (im)moral equivalency. The Talmud warns: ‘Being nice to the wicked leads to being wicked to the nice.’ Proper democracy needs defense. Anti-democrats (bigots) who attack the weak need to be blocked. That is not ‘anti-democratic.’ That’s the protection of democracy, us all.
I don’t understand why normal, humane, empathic, loving members of all monotheistic religions, who’re surely most common in any congregation outside of Germany, don’t band together to eradicate any and all religious attacks on Jews. After all, it is their name that’s at stake, not ours.
This Jewish Pentecost and the ensuing Shabbat, I prayed at the Kotel (Wailing Wall), and it was absolutely lovely with Jews of all denomination. Swallows blissfully swarming overhead. The Rabbis say, Not only will there always be enough space in Jerusalem at the Pilgrim Feasts. A greater wonder is no one will complain it’s crowded. I saw one person leaving the Kotel Plaza wearing a plastic jacket in flaming colors claiming we all need to follow Jesus. I wondered if his religion taught him to be shameless.
The clip at the top of this post shows missionaries brainwashing people at their most vulnerable, in distress, instead of helping with quiet empathy. The claim they’ll bring the Messiah is the infamous replacement theology.
