Religions, though monotheistic and aiming to unite nations under one God, have been used by politicians and political clergy to divide and segregate nations and against each other in perpetual wars that benefit only the military industrial complex and its share owners.
Political clergy distorted religions and gave them militaristic characters. God has been portrayed as a king and a military leader, who sends his angel soldiers down to earth to strike the heathens, unite his chosen, and build a kingdom. God is portrayed as an old man, whose business is to watch every move and every thought of every person on earth in order to reward those who follow his commandments and to punish those who disobey them.
Israeli Jews, world Zionist Jews, and the rest of Zionists justify Israel’s terrorism, genocides, war crimes, and crimes against Mother Nature as god’s wishes and commandments, to be followed if they are to be redeemed. They turned spiritual teachings into a bloody land registry, giving Jews religious rights and obligations to occupy Palestine, annihilate its indigenous inhabitants, and destroy their towns. A look at the Judaic Talmud (Old Testament) reveals ugly and devilish characteristics of this god, whose spirituality is beneath even that of humans.
While Christian and Islamic holy books describe God as life-giving, merciful, loving, forgiving, compassionate, and peaceful, the Talmud describes Judaic god as jealous, punishing, discriminatively racist, segregationist, genocidal, vengeful, destructive, and needy.
The Judaic god is racist for favoring one group of people over the rest of his creation. This started with discrimination among brothers; favoring Abel’s offerings over Cain’s, favoring Noah over the rest of his tribe, favoring Shem over his brothers Canaan and Japheth, Abraham over brothers Nahor and Haran, Isaac over his brother Ishmael, Jacob over brother Esau, Joseph over his eleven brothers, Moses over brother Aaron, until finally favoring the Israelites over the multitudes of nations that he created.
Judaic god wanted to segregate his chosen people (Israelites, Jews) from the rest of the nations, whom he detests “abhors” (Leviticus 20:23), and wants to keep them holy (Leviticus 20:26) “And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be mine”, to preserve the “Israelites’ holy seed” (Ezra 9:2). Therefore the Jews disposed of unholy seeds from among themselves; their non-Jewish wives and children (Ezra 10).
We can see god’s human-like jealousy for Sarai when Abram pimped her, first, to Pharaoh (Genesis 12:12-20), and second to Abimelech (Genesis 20: 1-17). Although the fault was Abram’s, god punished Pharaoh and Abimelech instead. god is also jealous and wants to be worshipped alone (Exodus 20:5) “For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God”. He wants all the sacrifices to be offered to him, not to any other gods (Exodus 22:20), (Exodus 34:14), and (Deuteronomy 6:15) “lest the anger of the Lord your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the face of the earth” as he did in Exodus 32:27-35 where he ordered the sons of Levi to murder three thousand of his chosen people and plagued thousands others.
This Judaic god seems to be needy. He needs people to worship him, to give him gold and silver, to offer him animal sacrifices, and to build him a temple where he can live among them, rather than living in the vast universe. He needs to gain honor over Pharaoh and be recognized as the Lord (Exodus 14:17-18). He also needs to be glorified as “I am the Lord your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel” (Isaiah 49:26) and to gather material treasures; silver, gold, and goods (Exodus 25). He demands that “All the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron are sacred to Yahweh and must go into his treasury” (Joshua 6:19, 24), also “I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in … The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says Yahweh” (Haggai 2:7-8)
Perhaps the most prominent characteristic of this Judaic god throughout the whole Talmud is his unforgiving, vicious, destructive, genocidal trait. First he tempted Adam with the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden, and then he banished him out of Eden for eating from the tree. God later became sorry for creating a wicked Man, so he commits his greatest genocidal crime by sending his flood to destroy all humanity except Noah and his family. In Genesis 19 we are told that god again committed genocide by destroying the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and murdered all their inhabitants with brimstone and fire.
The first few chapters of Exodus tell us how god smote Egypt eleven times with plagues, death of their animals and of their first born sons because Pharaoh refused to release the Jews. When Pharaoh finally relented, god told the Jews to steal gold and silver from the Egyptians. While crossing the Red Sea god obliterated the Egyptian army who were pursuing the Israelites “the waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not so much as one of them remained” (Exodus 14:28).
Under god’s orders Moses sent his men to take vengeance on the Midianites; burned all their cities and forts, took all their fortunes, and took their women and children as slaves. But Moses became angry and ordered them to follow god’s wishes and to “kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known a man intimately” (Numbers 13). Such was the law of war adopted by the Israelites against their enemies during their march to Palestine. Deuteronomy 20:16 set the law of war as: “of the cities of these peoples which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, you shall let nothing that breathes remain alive, but you shall utterly destroy them … just as the Lord your God has commanded you.”
This Judaic god (Yahweh) did not just instruct the Israelites to utterly annihilate other nations, but he himself fought their enemies as was told by Deuteronomy 11:23-25 “Then Yahweh will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand against you; the Lord your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread”.
Zechariah 12:1-9 reaffirms the Judaic god as a soldier annihilating the enemies of the Israelites:
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. …I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. … It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
Judaic god’s genocidal blood-thirst is obvious when he sends Saul, the Israelite king, on a mission; “Now the Lord sent you on a mission, and said, ‘Go, and utterly destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, and fight against them until they are consumed” (1 Samuel 14:18). This holy mission was conveyed to king Saul by the prophet Samuel: “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I will punish what Amalek did to Israel, … Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey” (1 Samuel 15:2-3). But when Saul brought many prisoners as slaves and cattle as booty (maybe out of mercy that was greater than his god’s mercy) this Judaic genocidal god regretted appointing Saul as a king: “I greatly regret that I have set up Saul as king, for he has turned back from following Me, and has not performed My commandments” (1 Samuel 15:11).
Such genocidal wars continued throughout the history of the Israelites while invading all the land of Canaan, starting with Joshua to Solomon where this Judaic god ordered the Israelite leaders and kings to “utterly destroy all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey with the edge of the sword” (Joshua 6:21), “But all the silver and gold and vessels of bronze and iron are consecrated to the Lord” (Joshua 6:19). In return, god fought for Israel, even causing the sun to stand still so that “the Lord cast down large hailstones from heaven on them (the enemies) … there were more who died from the hailstones than the children of Israel killed with the sword” (Joshua 10:1-42).
Sadly, this god did not hesitate to murder even many of his chosen people (the holy seeds). For building a golden calf, god ordered the sons of Levi to murder three thousand Jews and punished thousands of others with devastating plague (Exodus 32: 27-28 & 35). God also caused the earth to open and swallow the tents of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and murdered 14,700 Jews in a plague for daring to criticize Moses’ leadership (Numbers 16). He also punished the Jews for refusing to invade the Promised Land because it was inhabited by strong nations. So all Jews from aged 20 and up were sentenced to die in the desert (Numbers 14:29).
Israel’s terrorism, war crimes, genocides, complete destruction of Palestinian towns, murder of women and children, their use of holocaustal weapons, their arrogant racist violations of all international laws and humanitarian norms, their flagrant manipulation of political foreign policies of most European countries and the US, and the illegal and criminal use of other countries’ tax money to build their own colonies are only reflections of the wishes of their Judaic genocidal god.
A blood-thirsty destructive god such as this Judaic god cannot be the real God. He is a pagan god. Indeed he is really Lucifer himself in the soul.
