Tactic: Misquotes, partial quotes and hate mongering

October 28, 2010

It’s a favourite tactic of hate mongers and rabble rousers everywhere: quote something from the group you are trying to rouse against to show how they terrible they are, or, in the case of the “messianic jews” the additional aim, to show how the Jews agree with what they say. It’s not a new tactic, its been used down the ages and Jews have frequently been the target of such tactics. Probably one of the most known examples of this tactic is the book “The Talmud Unmasked” by the Reverend Parnosis in the 19th century. Much of that, plus some embellishments were utilised by Hoffman in the 1930’s to create hatred of the Jews in the official Nazi party magazine “De Sturmer”. More recently, in the 1980’s and 1990’s, there were the writings of Israel Shahak- a convert to Christianity who published many anti-Semitic books as well as originating a hoax when he claimed that he observed Orthodox Jews refusing to help a Christian on Shabbat and was told by a Rabbi their action was correct. Later he was unable to recall where the incident happened, who the Rabbi was, who the people involved were in fact, when challenged on the story his memory deserted him completely the Israeli Rabbinate produced Rabbinical responsa from the modern era and others dating back to the times of the Talmud to show his lies- yet for some reason anti-Semites still seem to take him at his word.

So into this illustrious company the “messianic jews” of Yahoo! Answers have been joined. The fact that Adelphi under her Shay ID has posted quotes from Reverend Parnosis and from the hate site of “Brother” Knapper has been shown previously so to that we now show how Adelphi (under her new ID butterfly) and “Messianic Jew”- deliberately misquote and lie about the contents of this blog. Yes ladies, gentleman and “messianic jews”- in comments on Yahoo! Answers, the “messianic jews” actually lie about this blog as if I wouldn’t be there to counter their lies!

First we have “messianic jew” I have transcribed what he says in the comments- and the screenshot is below:

Messianic Jew MARK/ALLONYOAVH QUOTE: “There is the principal of Pikuach Nefesh- where to save a life, a soul (note the usage of the term NEFESH here as well!), virtually anything is allowed with the exception of three things: 1) Idolatry, 2) Murder, 3) Sexual immorality (specifically restricted to incest,
Report Abuse
Messianic Jew CONTINUED ALLONYOAVH QUOTE: On top of all this the Torah explicitly states how we deal with the meizid, the one who entices Jews to other religions. It is the only time that a death penalty is applied to a person who is not warned beforehand! In fact, the necessary witnesses can even be hidden and
Report Abuse
Messianic Jew the meizid brought to the place where they can see him and he cannot see them in order that he repeat his enticement to the person, and thus incriminate himself!

THE DEATH PENALTY FOR MESSIANICS IS IMPLIED. BE CAREFUL.
Report Abuse
Messianic Jew Mark/Allonyoavh continues ” We must do what is required of us and to work to keep our fellow Jews safe and Jewish! ”
Report Abuse

What he is supposedly quoting is from this post- and he deliberately leaves out the fact that the post clearly states this is not applicable in the modern era! Why he does leave it out? because in his hate mongering he is trying to create the impression that this is a hate site and calling for the death of the “messianic jews” (an accusation they have tried to use before to no effect).

Adelphi plays along in an attempt to bolster his hate mongering and states:

ღƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄… Messianic Jew, did you note he uses the same terminology above he did there mentioning the death penalty? Allonyoav quote above

“Nor does it change the fact that they would be considered to be in the category of the MEIZID- and especially hated by the Torah for their acts of enticing Jews away”
Report Abuse
ღƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄… So on these comments he calls me MEIZID and on his blog he says:
“On top of all this the Torah explicitly states how we deal with the meizid, the one who entices Jews to other religions. It is the only time that a death penalty is applied …”
Report Abuse

Of course anyone reading the post would see immediately the way they were twisting and lying about what I said- but then, neither of the two provides a link to the post (heh, undoubtedly they were most upset when I did!)

Then we get Adelphi trying to make it sound like I am sympathetic to the “messianic jews and states in a comment:

One of the most compassionate posts you made was , on your blog, you referred to a difference between Nazis and Messianics. With a heart of love you say “The messianic jews seek our conversion out of a desire to save”us.” How human you sound.

Again no link to the quote- why not? because she would not want people to see what I have actually said: From on this blog in the comments to the article

Personally, I don’t equate the “messianic jewish” desire to convert Jews to the Nazi desire to destroy Jews. Yes, from the standpoint of Judaism their wanting to convert us is worse than the Nazis physical destruction as it results in punishment in this world, and kares in the world to come- however, the motivation is completely different. the Nazi’s sought our destruction and eradication. The “messianic jews” seek our conversion out of a desire to “save” us. They do not realise the spiritual damage and harm they cause to Jews through their actions since Christianity states that we have to be converted for our own good! One cannot equate a desire to destroy something to a desire to save something!

“messianic jew” also tries his hand at misquoting me in supposed support of the same platform as him and “messianic judaism”- only he uses a portion of an answer I gave in Yahoo! answers three years ago

Hey Allonyoav-I agree!

You understand! “Mashiach is basically being sent to save us from ourselves, [when we were spiritually decrepit & unworthy]

What was actually stated (in a discussion of the idea of “mashiach ben yosef was)-

What you need to understand is that Judaism does not say there HAS to be the war between Gog ad Magog (what you refer to as Armageddon except in the Jewish version there is no Satan, anti-Christ, horseman or in fact most of what is said in the New Testament in revelations…). The coming of Mashiach can be a number of ways depending on the condition of the world at the time and the spiritual state of the Jews at the time. It is stated that if all Jews were to observe two consecutive Shabbos’ the Mashiach would be instantly revealed and the messianic age started immediately. In that scenario the mashiach ben Yosef would NOT appear at all. Another intermediate scenario is if we are bein yonim (at an intermediate spiritual level- the exact definition of this is actually debated so I’m not going to elaborate on it)- in that scenario the appearance of Mashiach is more gradual and i mashiach ben Yosef may make an appearance as a politician or other similar figure- essentially a pre-cursor that elevates the world so we are heavier on the “good” side. The worst case scenario is when we spiritually decrepit, unworthy and Mashiach is basically being sent to save us from ourselves (kinda along the lines of why God used the years of suffering of Avraham and Sarah (they are considered to have suffered 190 years waiting for the birth of Isaac- thus the 100 years of Age of Avraham at the time plus the Sarah’s 90 years) to count against the years spent in Egypt so he could redeem the Jews earlier). IN that scenario you have the war of Gog and Magog and mashiach ben Yosef is a general/war chief whatever and is most likely the first person to be resurrected when all the dead are brought back to life. However, just to emphasise the point- the two are very close together in time if not continguous and overlapping and Mashiach ben Yosef does not do any of the tasks set aside for Mashiach ben David.

So there you have it- the “messianic jews” showing once again how deceitful they are. How low they will stoop in their attempts to deceive. Once again we see the level of dishonesty and attempted manipulation they will sink to in order to push their point. These examples are easily for me to illustrate- since they were trying to distort my own words! Sadly, they frequently resort to such tactics to try and deceive those who are not so easily able to discern their lies and manipulations

    You are making a clown out of yourself.

    No. I am NOT messianic.

    • Suckels is one of the more amusing “messianic jewish” incarnations on Yahoo! Answers. he has multiple personalities- sometimes he is the mother, other times the father, son, daughter, second cousin twice removed etc LOL Some claim to be “messianic jews “, others claim they are not “messianic jews” (here we have him claiming to not be a “messianic jew” in the hopes that will make him more authoritative when he supports his co-religionists) LOL

      Sometimes he tries to sound reasonable, other times like the clown he is, and at other times he likes to spam comments threads to try and block them with “ark” comments (as was depicted on this blog previously in the post here

      The screenshot of suckels spamming is there (Example 8) and can be found here

    כל הכבוד May you continue to have much succes in showing everyone the methods of these chamorim! May all the reshai’im fall into the habit of betraying themselves by their words so that others can learn to avoid them and treat them with the contempt they deserve!

    • וְלַמַּלְשִׁינִים אַל תְּהִי תִקְוָה. וְכָל הָרִשְׁעָה כְּרֶגַע תּאבֵד. וְכָל אויְבֵי עַמְּךָ מְהֵרָה יִכָּרֵתוּ. וְהַזֵדִים מְהֵרָה תְעַקֵּר וּתְשַׁבֵּר וּתְמַגֵּר וְתַכְנִיעַ בִּמְהֵרָה בְיָמֵינוּ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’, שׁובֵר אויְבִים וּמַכְנִיעַ זֵדִים:

    PLEASE READ EVERY LINE:

    How did you get this way? Was it your parents, perhaps a nanny, uncle Ernie, a bad Rabbi? Who did it? Who filled you with so much hate for people? I feel bad for you. I honestly do.

    one day I hope you learn to not other people’s spiritual walk. People are free to chose what and how they worship like you have that right.

    I blame your Community and your parents. I’m sorry but they both FAILED YOU. Take a deeper look and judge people on the content of their character, not by what their religious affiliation is.

    I ask you form the bottom of my heart please reconsider your path in life. At the present nobody having a site like yours could be a good rabbi.

    Imagine if you focused all your energy towards good. You could go down in history as a humanitarian.

    • Note how the only way “messianic jews” know how to communicate is via insults? They seem proud of the bad behaviour of their co-religionists! The love of deceit and misrepresentation that characterises their interaction with the Jewish community is epitomised in these comments- a refusal to condemn dishonesty and hate mongering- while insulting the person who points it out!
