Understanding the Idea of Israeli Land Under Talmudic Law|
by Jonah Feinberg
Jewish Life Magazine
Recently, I have begun to intensely study the Talmud, and it has proven to be a very spiritually enlightening experience. The Talmud has much to teach us about God, Jews, Israel, and daily life. "It’s a central pillar for understanding anything about Judaism, more than the Bible," says Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, one of the world’s best known Talmudical scholars. "The Talmud is not a divine gift given to people. The Jewish people created it. But on the other hand, it created the Jewish people. In so many ways, we’re Talmudic Jews, whether we believe in it or not."
All practicing Jews are Talmudic Jews, as the Talmud is the very core of Judaism. The Talmud is the rock which forms the base of Judaism and Jewish law. We can see the Talmud's influence all over Israel today, from Israel's calendars to its legal codes. In the words of Herman Wouk: "The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart's blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs or ceremonies we observe - whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists - we follow the Talmud. It is our common law."
Make no mistakes about it: under Talmudic divine law, Israel absolutely has the right to exist. In fact, Israel has more than the right to exist. Under Talmudic law, Israel actually has the right to FAR more power than it currently has. An examination of the Talmud and what it teaches us about the rightful place of Israel can be very enlightening and eye-opening to those of us who are not yet aware of how Talmudic law works.
Studying the Talmud is currently something associated almost exclusively with Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism. That's a shame, because all Jews - including the most ultra-reform Jews - have much to learn from the Talmud. Again, the Talmud is the foundation of all Jewish beliefs. How important is the Talmud? So important, in fact, that Israel is now basing much of its legal system on the Talmud.
A Jewish state fully endorses the use of the Jewish Torah and the Talmud as the laws of the land. Last year, as part of a series of moves designed to make Israel's Jewish status crystal clear, Benjamin Netanyahu publicly stated that he aims to make Israel's legal system based on the Talmud, as it should be. In Netanyahu's own words to the Likud party's ultra-Orthodox member Yaakov Vider: "We will legally define the Talmud as the basis of the Israeli legal system."
As the Jewish state, Israel's Jewish essence must be felt in every single aspect of Israeli life. The Talmud is the divine law of the Jewish people, so it's essential that it also be the law of Israel - the Jewish state. Regardless of one's feelings about Netanyahu, his commitment to following Talmudic law and cementing Israel's Jewish status is truly something to be admired.
However, by acknowledging the idea of "Palestinian land," Netanyahu is betraying the Talmud and Talmudic law. If there is one term that I truly cannot stand to hear, it's the term "Palestinian land." Talking to other people in the Jewish community, I often hear the term "Palestinian land" thrown about, and it always deeply irks me. Any Jew who speaks of "Palestinian land" clearly has a very deep misunderstanding of Jewish law. The Talmud makes it very clear that all land belongs to Jews, and that Jews may seize any land that they so desire. Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348: "All property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which, consequently, is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples." This is directly from the Talmud. Why, then, should the "Palestinians" be entitled to any land? Why should they even be allowed to exist?
In the words of top Israeli Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, "Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel." Likewise, Rabbi Ya'acov Perin has publicly stated: "One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail." Shocking? It shouldn't be. This is Talmudic law as well. The Talmud makes it very clear that the life of a non-Jew has no value, and that gentiles exist only to serve Jews. Sanhedrin 59a: "Murdering Goyim is like killing a wild animal." Abodah Zara 26b: "Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed." Baba Necia 114, 6: "The Jews are human beings, but the nations of the world are not human beings but beasts." Midrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L: "Jehovah created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night."
This is directly from the Talmud, and these are just a few of many examples. Jewish divine law makes it very clear: the "Palestinians" not only have no right to any land, but the "Palestinians" are not even human beings and thus have no right to even live at all. The "Palestinians" are worthless subhuman beasts and vermen. Jews are human beings, but gentiles are subhuman beasts whose only purpose is to serve the people of Israel. The only reason that goyim have to exist is to serve Jews. If goyim cannot serve Jews, then they should be exterminated. We allow Americans, Australians, Canadians, and Europeans to exist because they serve Jews and they serve Israel - and, when they get out of line, we attack them, like we did to the Americans when we sunk their USS Liberty. In the words of former Israeli Knesset member Yossi Sarid, "We control US politicians like marionettes." Countries like the US, Sweden, and Australia play valuable roles not only in protecting Israel, but also in serving as dumping grounds (or garbage cans) where Israel can send Sudanese, Syrians, and other subhuman waste who seek asylum in Israel. Multiculturalism in the West has ultimately been of great benefit to the people of Israel, as it allows Israel to ship off invaders to the West rather than having them infiltrate and invade the Jewish state of Israel, thus threatening Israel's Jewish character. Multiculturalism is something that exists strictly for gentiles. It is NOT something that should ever be attempted in Israel. Israel is the Jewish state, and allowing ANY non-Jews into Israel would be unthinkable. This is precisely why, when African baboons come to Israel, they are sterilized, shoved into crude containment facilities, and eventually shipped off to gentile nations like Sweden, Canada, and Australia - as they should be. Their inferior monkey genes are not wanted anywhere in Israel, as they spread nothing but crime, destruction, ignorance, and misery.
Non-Jews have absolutely no place in Israel, and they have absolutely no place attempting to boss Israel around. The life of a non-Jew is disposable, and Jews are entitled to take the lives of non-Jews whenever necessary. Again, the only purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews. If non-Jews are not able to serve Jews, then, under Talmudic law, they should be exterminated. "Palestinians" do not serve Jews in any way. In fact, "Palestinians" do the exact opposite. "Palestinians" are the single biggest threat to the continued existence of the Jewish state that there is. As such, it's time to stop pretending that "Palestinians" have any rights whatsoever. It's time to deal with the "Palestinians" the exact same way that we would deal with cockroaches, termites, fleas, ticks, and all other parasites: through swift and merciless extermination.
