Jewish leaders call for new editions of the Bible and the Koran to carry ‘trigger warnings’ highlighting anti-Semitic passages

The Ugly Truth

Ed note–please take a good look at the quote above, lifted from the book of Deuteronomy. It is THOUSANDS of years old and represents just one out of hundreds of similar passages that–both individually and collectively–CLEARLY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY delineate the source of the ‘Jewish problem’ that has been a gorilla on the back of mankind for thousands of years, and which now represents the gravest threat to all life on earth, due to the power which this ‘Jewish problem’ has accumulated unto itself in terms of politics, money, media, and the nuclear weapons which it has threatened to unleash upon the entire world if it does not get its way.
As we said, this passage–along with all its identical twin siblings–did not just ‘pop up’ with the publication of Theodore Herzl’s book ‘The Jewish State’. It was not born in 1948 with Israel’s ‘creation’. It did not begin with the Khazars, the Talmud, the Zohar, the Kabbalah or the New York Times.
It has been sitting there as an open, undiscussed secret for thousands of years and which Gentiles have refused to examine and consider for all the deadly implications against them that it contains. Like a ticking time bomb in the middle of a shopping mall visible for all to see if they would just bother to look, complete with wires, countdown clock, and all the graffiti painted on it reading ‘death to all Gentiles’ in clear and unambiguous language, those cops and other ‘civil servants’ claiming authority and expertise on the ‘spiritual’ well-being of Gentile societies–whether Christian or Muslim–have in virtually all cases refused to do their duty in warning all those at the great shopping mall of humanity of the existence and nature of this bomb that is about to go off in their lives when it was they more than anyone else who should have known.
All the signs and indicators have been there all along. Virtually every Judaic ‘celebration’ gloats over the death and destruction of Gentiles who got in the way of Judea, Inc’s aims, from Passover to Purim to H’Nookah, and yet, Gentile societies not only view these celebrations of Gentile death, destitution and destruction with deadly passivity, but as well, welcome them as part of their national traditions. What’s worse is that today, those few sane voices sounding the alarm over the time bomb ticking down to that doomsday moment envisioned by the bomb-makers and bomb-throwers of Judea who are trying to warn the people away from that great shopping mall of humanity are ignored, thrown out and barred entry by the very same security guards whose job is keeping the peace and order so that commerce may continue.
As we like to say, no one ever accused ‘them’ of being stupid.

Jewish leaders are calling for new editions of the Bible and Koran to carry warning messages which highlight anti-Semitic passages in the holy texts.

The recommendations have been made in a new document called ‘An End to Antisemitism! A Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism’.

 

It was produced following an international conference organised by the European Jewish Congress, at which academics gathered to discuss how prejudice and discrimination can be tackled.

 

Among the policies mentioned in the document was the idea of warning messages in holy texts, a topic discussed in a chapter entitled ‘recommendations regarding Religious Groups and Institutions’.

 

The document reads: ‘Translations of the New Testament, the Qur’an and other Christian or Muslim literatures need marginal glosses, and introductions that emphasize continuity with Jewish heritage of both Christianity and Islam and warn readers about antisemitic passages in them.

 

‘While some efforts have been made in this direction in the case of Christianity, these efforts need to be extended and made consistent in both religions.’

 

There are several themes in the New Testament that have come under fire for their use as justification for anti-Semitic attitudes.

These include the blame of Jews for the death of Jesus and the seemingly stubborn nature of the Jewish people and their disloyalty to God.

 

While there are some negative remarks about Jews in the Koran, and negative portrayals of the people.

 

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has previously spoken of how religious texts can be exploited or misinterpreted to promote discriminatory attitudes.

 

Writing in a collection of essays published in 2016, he said: ‘It is a shameful truth that, through its theological teachings, the church, which should have offered an antidote, compounded the spread of this virus.

 

‘The fact that anti-Semitism has infected the body of the Church is something of which we as Christians must be deeply repentant. We live with the consequences of our history of denial and complicity.’

 

The document, which was produced by academics including Dina Porat and Lawrence H. Schiffman, also calls on all antisemitic texts and passages in the heritage of Christianity and Islam ‘to be identified and rejected’.

 

Other recommendations include religious leaders and thinkers ‘publicly denouncing as unholy writ’ canonical or quasi-canonical writings of religious anti-Semites.

 

The justification for these changes, the documents states, is because divine messages are always communicated through human beings and therefore subject to error.

 

It reads: ‘God’s revelation is thus marred by human fallibility. Beginning with the New Testament, divine revelation expresses itself in Christian holy texts that also express a form of hatred.

 

‘The manifestations of this hatred resulted in a tradition of antisemitism that gave moral legitimacy to crimes against the Jewish people, the epitome of which is the Shoah.’

Once the ‘antisemitic contents of a religious memory are identified’ religious leaders and followers need to be told, the document concludes.

 

Other areas highlighted, following the conference, include addressing anti-Semitism online and within research organisations and academic institutions.

 

This includes ensuring internet search engines privilege positive depictions of Judaism and accurate descriptions of the history of anti-Semitism.

 

Academics have been reacting to suggested recommendations laid out in the documents.

 

Dr Christine Joynes, a theology lecturer at Oxford, told The Times that she had ‘some sympathy’ over the suggestion of an annotated bible.

 

But said: ‘The whole Bible needs a health warning to read it through the right critical lens and in historical context.’

 

While Muhammad Abdel Haleem, professor of Islamic Studies at the University of London, and also speaking to The Times said that the Koran is entirely negative towards Jews.

 

He said: ‘If someone wants to get involved in antisemitism or anti-Islamic behaviour, they will do it whether or not you add warnings and footnotes.’
