A Secret of our Enemy :Inter-Ethnic Fault Lines Among the Jews (Full Article)

The broigus or the non-willingness to talk to the other-one or enemy, has created more non-understanding and ridiculous division instead of co-operation or acceptance of differences.

Still today there is perhaps even more exclusion in Judaism and unnecessary isolation and exclusion, instead of getting to know each other more and working together as equals working for and showing the same love for the Same One True God.

To remember

  •  Jews survived + adapted by holding firmly to their defensive creed
  • Jews complaining > their communities suffering from inter-ethnic + intergenerational conflict.
  • modern Ashkenazi Jews developed peculiar way of expressing anger at one another => makes our family quarrels unusually prolonged + bitter. > demand more justice of others than prepared to offer => quarrels = so obdurate because desire more justice than available in this world.
  • Quarrelers = adept at enmeshing the unwary.
  • In most cultures an angry person longs to unload his rage on the wrongdoer > Jewish quarreler, in contrast, prides him or herself on not talking to the offender > elaborate endlessly to anyone on the injustice he’s suffered—with the crucial exception of the putative wrongdoer.
  • broigus = “a fight where people won’t talk to each other.” > Not talking = most distinguishes Jewish quarrel from all other kinds
  • absence of contact with the alleged wrongdoer, quarrels become obdurate => quarrel becomes a theodicy
  • quarrelsomeness =  Jewish fate > biblical books + rabbinic literature replete with admonitions against stiff-necked pride.
  • Ashkenazi quarrel =/= fate = pronounced moral/theological dimension that makes it appear that way.
  • having possession = experienced as a proxy for a permanent + living closeness
  • hahamim in some Sephardic Jewish communities > contrasts with  contemporary Ashkenazi rabbinate who tend to duck out when the swinging starts. > struggle for dominance within a family is ancient + ubiquitous, but  willingness to destroy the family in pursuit of it is not.
  • Other quarrelsome cultures tend to focus on outsiders (the IRA versus Britain) or nonfamilial rivals (competing Mafia families).
  • sources of Jewish inwardness = anti-Semitism on the one side (including the inheritance of the Holocaust), + excesses of modern Jewish piety on the other.
  • Anti-Semitism leaves Jews with no obvious point of escape: => secular + religious Jews feel compelled to view their origin as a burdensome fate + their brethren as source of their problem. => In their desire to free themselves from Jew-hatred, Jews turn their bitterness on—other Jews.
  • salient features of Jewish quarrel in Holy Land—inwardness, sternness, shunning, claim to own the faith and its history implied in the very terms “Orthodox” + “Haredim,” > will to self-destruction = remarkably similar to  Ashkenazi quarrels among secular Jews in the West.
  • nasty feuds regularly kicked off within synagogues by disgruntled congregants anxious to disengage themselves from a rabbi—often a learned, decent man, + almost never one so base or negligent as to deserve the public humiliation his congregants dish out.
  • Family peace requires placing tensions + dissatisfactions native to family life in a larger frame.
  • Jewish communal institutions have lost ability to curb disastrous secularization of pious impulses. > rabbinate dependent on wealthy donors + too exposed to forces of the Jewish quarrel, to dare the attempt.
  • Ashkenazi quarrel = outcome of approaching inheritance + other family matters with a misplaced religious zeal.
  •  quarrel = shadow of Ashkenazi Judaism

Introduction: There is the famous Jewish saying, “if one of us is attacked, all of us are attacked.” On the one hand this culturally accepted twist of logic is their strength, but on the other hand it is their weakness. The white culture does not have this ethos, rather we are more guided by the principle of logos, which ultimately accepts reason as supreme over the official or cultural law of the land. Jews survived and adapted by holding firmly to their defensive creed, white culture survived and adapted by always holding reason and logic as something that could ignore and surpass all former tradition or codified law. However this leaves white culture under threat from the Jews among us who operate primarily for the benefit of Jewish interests, hence as parasites.

Jews of Cuba

The Jews of Cuba “struggled to survive after the revolution,” says Mayra Levy, the president of Havana’s Hebrew Sephardic Center. About 95 percent of Cuba’s Jews — some 15,000 people — left the island in 1959, following Fidel Castro’s revolution against dictator Fulgencio Batista. The Jewish exodus was fueled by Castro’s attacks on capitalism, in which Jews, [...]

God letting us having a look into His Mind

When looking at the ancient writings which form the Kitvei HaKodesh we may notice how the Bore allows us to have a look into His Mind.

Thinking about the happiness by the Torah reading

When the Jew ceases to see beyond the black ink on parchment of the Torah scrolls, when the Jew no longer feels a living covenant and an eternal bond with the infinite; when the Jew finds only curious legends, quaint stories and archaic laws, and dissects the Torah as though it were the frozen cadaver [...]

The way of looking at the Scriptures and the people in this world

At the European continent there are several descendants from saved Jews who either were brought up in another country and in an other religion by their war- or foster families, or could keep their faith but lost the knowledge of Hebrew. We also may find Jews who have found that Jeshua is the long awaited Messiah and are looking for a gathering of like-minded believers. Being myself also a reflection of time and surroundings I introduce here my aims and hopes and give an idea which bible translations I shall be using and which track I would like to be following.

Shortness of kosher meat reason to go for vegetables

With the ban on kosher or halal slaughtering and with the ban of circumcision several politicians in Europe want to have certain religious people to leave these regions, but the real lovers of God do know that the Elohim has provided enough substances to survive and live healthy with vegetables and as such can live in a kosher and healthy way as veggie.

Stolpersteine and necessity of a monument to remember

Even when there may be already so many cities with stolpersteine Antwerp and other Belgian cities do have to have real monuments to remember all victims of Social Nationalism

A House for God in our 21st century

Living in this world we should not be of it, but should be partakers of a Body that wants to be a Group of believers in One God, who want to offer themselves as repentant souls to the Most High and who want to create a place where they can gather and share their dreams in union with God and where all can grow stronger in their faith and become a people that shall be able to go through the big tribulation when it comes.

Not studying an abstract and arcane text of the ancient world

The Divine Creator provided the greatest tool to learn what we should know, to make the best of our life, with His infallible Word, collected in 66 books, whereby 25% of the text is focussing on a Mashiach or Messiah, a Saviour for all mankind. For some people it may look an arcane language of ancient times not useful any more for our contemporary world. The written collection of order, instruction, or guide, issued by an authority much higher than any living being on this earth, may for many be not easily understood, abstruse or obscure, because they just not want to listen to the words like they are written down but prefer to listen to human doctrines which may confuse lots of people and bring a lot of false teachings into the world. The Bible is not at all arcane, requiring secret knowledge to be understood. One does not have to have a degree in theology to come to understand God's Word. To get to understand it and to get wisdom one needs to read it regularly and has to study those words given by the Most High, giving more attention to them than to words of so called theologians who prefer to hold on to human doctrines instead of Biblical doctrines.

Called Immanuel does not mean to be Jesus being God

Often Christians say the proof that Jesus is God is because he is called Immanuel. But if that would be so then we can find God still walking today in different places and sojourning in many families.
