JEWS AND BUDDHISM

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ JEWS AND BUDDHISM ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is an Oscar-nominated documentary narrated by Sharon Stone that compiles interviews and archival footage of prominent Jewish, Buddhist, and Jewish-Buddhist personalitiesƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚including the Dalai Lama, David Ben Gurion, Allen Ginsberg, Rabbi Allen Lew, Sylvia Boorstein, and many othersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚to explore the new phenomenon of American Jews who have expanded their faith by drawing from Buddhist traditions.

More than 30% of non-Asian Buddhists are Jews ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” and many have become leaders in the spiritual movement.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

The influence of Buddhism is profoundly changing what it means to worship at synagogue. Rabbi Allen Lew explains that in his synagogue he leads his followers in meditation before prayer services four times a week. He believes that Buddhist practices can open spiritual doors to enhance Jewish tradition.

Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, who considered himself a non-theistic Jew, found solace in Eastern religion. A leader in the counterculture movement, Ginsberg explored Buddhist meditation and belief and expressed his spiritual discontent in his poetry. ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-JerusalemƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s hated walls, I couldnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t get over the holy side and weep where I was supposed to by history,ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ he wrote cynically about his trip to Israel in the poem ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Angkor Wat,ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ continuing, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Returning home at last, years later as prophesied, is this the way IƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢m supposed to feel?ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

In truth, Judaism and Buddhism are not complementary ideologies that always fit snugly inside one another. The film points to the fact that the ancient traditions have profound, unavoidable differences. For one thing, most Jews believe in one God, and Buddhists believe in no God.

The film shows an archival television interview of IsraelƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion and his old friend, the Buddhist former Prime Minister of Burma as they discuss religion. Before they begin, the Prime Minister from Burma blurts out, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-How is your wife? How is Mrs. Ben Gurion?ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ His question is full of genuine interest and sets the tone of their debate, what seems to be the understanding that their religious differences are trumped by something more importantƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚their human connection.

    To say : “Buddhists believe in no God” is inaccurate. I am quoting from the book “What the Buddha Taught” by Ven. Walpola Rahula (page 37 in the hard cover copy) :

    When asked about Nirvana (cessation of Continuity) , Buddha had stated :
    “O bhikkus, there is the unborn, ungrown, and unconditioned. Were there not there not the ungrown and unconditioned, there would be no escape for the born, grown, and conditioned. Since there is the unborn, ungrown and unconditioned, so there is escape for the born, grown, and conditioned. Here the four elements of solidity, fluidity, heat and motion have no place; the notions of length and breadth, the subtle and the gross, good and evil, name and form are altogether destroyed; neither this world nor the other, nor coming, going or standing, neither death nor birth, nor sense objects are to be found. …. Absolute Truth is beyond duality and relativity”.

    Truth (with a capital ‘T’), is another word for God/Allah.

  2. ranjith Says:

    If anyone wants to find God in Buddhism, it’s like a mirage.

    Pantheism prevailed among people, in Buddhas period.

    Buddha was silent about the existence and oneness of God.

  3. AnuD Says:

    Fran DiaZ: I think here, no god means All mighty god. Buddhists believe in gods which can be similar to angels in Christianity and Buddhists are called Agnostics.

  4. LankaLover Says:

    Categorizing Buddhism as a religion has its own downside. Core Buddhism (leaving the cultural and ritualistic elements added later) is about common sense. It’s deep core goes into body and mind purification and realisation of ultimate truth about our being and existance. It is much more to do with self-realisation through deep analysis. It does not need to be a religion, as we see in the recent society. Whatever the religion you were born to or learn to practice can become a Buddhist or learn from Buddhist teachings. You do not have to give up your ‘religion’ to learn or practice Buddhist teachings.

    Two recent Jewish scholars whom I have followed include,

    Dr. Brian Weiss http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Weiss

    and

    Dr. Peter Senge http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Senge

    Both their ultimate teachings/findings are aligned with Buddhism and Buddhist teachings.

  5. Fran Diaz Says:

    AnuD: It is the words that differ and the various interpretations given to the words of the Buddha long after the Buddha passed away that makes some of the Buddhists (particularly the older generation in Lanka), say that there is ‘no God’ It has also something to do with the traditional believers of God having/using weapons of mass destruction and the WWI&II, colonisation, mid east wars, etc that makes some Buddhists have difficulty in accepting ‘God’. Also, in my view, Buddhism came about in India whilst the Laws of Manu allowing the draconian (for the Untouchables & low castes), Caste system, were in existence and tied onto the Hindu religion which has belief in God. Since the Buddha eschewed the Caste System (Buddha said: one is low born or high born only through ones own actions), Buddhists over the periods of time took it as a rejection also of the existence of God.

    As much as water, air, food, our life force, illness, death are all common ground/needs to all of mankind, so is the presence of the Omnipotent, Omnipresent & Omniscient God/Truth/Allah. There cannot be life without the essential for some, and not for others. It is only our minds that assume this or that, as the presence of Truth/God as an other dimensional all pervasive Energy is unseen. It cannot be proved in a laboratory either. But the Presence is evident is everywhere.

    In Buddhism, the emphasis is on the Dharma. From what source does the Dharma flow ? There has to be source for the laws to flow from. That source is Truth/God/Allah.

  6. Fran Diaz Says:

    Please read “There cannot be life without the essential for some, and not for others” as “There cannot be life without the essential for some, and WITH for others”.

  7. jayt Says:

    some groups in the west said that Sinhalese or buddhist do not believe God but they did it to attack sinhalese racially. Sinhalese believed God long before anybody.

  8. jayt Says:

    West not realised that Jesus is not Eropean. He is middle -easterner

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    Again, consider how we are conceived and born, and we Breathe the same way till we die when the Breath stops. It is the same for every human being, whatever our BELIEF system is !
    It is possible that the Buddha was silent on the matter of ‘God” because even then people of that time had a PRECONCEIVED notion of God (perhaps as a Being up in the Heavens ?). Who knows what they thought, but the Buddha deemed it wise to be silent on the subject. Yet, he described what Nirvana (which to me is a state of permanent Union with God) is, and those words are a close match to a scientific description of God/Truth/Allah.
    Please correct me if I am wrong in this assumptions.

    For more clarity on this subject, please see website http://www.wopg.org.

  10. mjaya Says:

    Nirvana has nothing to do with “oneness with God”. It is a state when an individual ceases to have any cravings, desires or attachments. The Buddha stated that should a creator God exist, that God should also obey the laws of nature. If you try to analyze the concepts of God then you end up with nothing more than defining a paradigm in which the laws of nature are overridden by the laws of God (i.e. the cliche that the mind can never truly understand God). That is why when questioned about the existence of God answered “if you are struck by an arrow, is the more important thing trying to figure out who shot the arrow or healing yourself?”

  11. Fran Diaz Says:

    In a state when an individual TRULY ceases to have any cravings, desires or attachments, one is absorbed into Truth/God/Allah i.e. you will be in Nirvanic bliss. It is a BLISSFUL state of being that cannot be faked. It is state of Bliss which can be achieved while living, not wait for death and go to ‘heaven’. I might ask : If I am in a state of Bliss, how can I possibly crave anything ? If at all, I might wish that the Bliss never stops, but I imagine even such a wish may not occur to a person who is in Bliss.

    It is difficult to define the word “God” (see how the Buddha spoke of Truth/God in a round about way, just by describing what Truth/God is not). God or no God, we are certainly at a point in time where we have to Heal ourselves. Meditation heals. Dhana (giving from the Heart, without reward or expectations from anyone), Seela (morality/ethics), Bhavana (Meditation) is the way to go, whatever Buddhists believe in, God or no God.

  12. LankaLover Says:

    God is created by man.. It’s just a concept…end of the story!

  13. Fran Diaz Says:

    For mankind, God, whether concept or not, will always be there, as human beings are finite and have to face dying. No one lives forever, and we have to guide ourselves by some laws & rules, or else chaos and fear will reign.

  14. mjaya Says:

    The Dhammapada starts from “Mano Pubbangama Dhamma” (the mind is above everything) and Buddhism is based upon the “Anathma” (soulless) principle. God is nothing more than man’s creation (the other way around!) and a concept invented after Pharoah Aknatan united the polytheist Egyptian system into a system worshiping a single Sun God. Interestingly it happened when the ancient Kingdom of Egypt was united under s single Emperor. Both Judaism and Zoroastrianism emerge after this!

    A British philosopher called David Hume questioned the concept of an all powerful God using the distorted “logic” used by theists by asking questions like “who created the creator?”, “is this the only world God created?”, “are there multiple creators?” etc.

  15. Dham Says:

    ranjith,
    You are talking like a “mada punditaya” again.
    Did you read what Buddha said in full to claim “Buddha was silent about the existence and oneness of God” ?
    Read, research and then open mouth.
    Buddha gave a long description how the “I am the God” idea comes into some Brahma’s, thereby thinking of himself as God.
    Fran,
    You also should read that suttha so that you are aware of how the “creator God” was created in the mind of a Bhrama. It is an insult to taks God=Nibbana.

  16. mjaya Says:

    Well said Dham!

    If you want to understand God, just watch Pat Condell! :D

  17. R.M.W Says:

    BUDDHIST DO NOT BELIEVE IN A ‘CRATOR’ GOD
    If there was such God as Fran Diaz points out, then he must be either a Sadist or an imbecile or both.
    The writer is correct, most Jews believe in a (creator) God, and Buddhists do not believe in a ‘creator’ God. In fact The Jews believe they are the ‘chosen people’. Chosen by Jehovah, but ‘chosen’ to do what is not quite clear. Chosen to suffer perhaps?
    Still no question about it, Jews are the smartest people in the world as they are awarded Nobel Prices in most investigative sciences. Here I am not speaking of Nobel Peace Prize, which goes to uncle Toms of Norway and other peace industry Parasites.
    Indeed hardly any Nobel prizes were awarded to one among those billion odd Muslims.
    No doubt it, Jews has extended the maximum to help spread the word of Buddha than any other Judeo Christian sect. While Muslims has massacred the Buddhist and occupied the Silk Road nations lying between Pakistan to that Chinese Border Jews in those counties has eased their pain. Have you ever heard of the Jews massacring and taking over any Buddhist nations historically?
    Indeed through Jews has a self centred attitude vis a vis God, Creation, soul and as being the ‘chosen people’, yet they could not help it, as they emerged from the desert and was first attacked by the Romans, then by the Muslims and presently by the Christens and Muslims both.
    Christians were angry with the Jews and abused them through the centuries. Why? As they being ‘killers of Christ’. But then Jesus himself was a Jew. Incredibly enough, if Jesus was not killed how he can thereby save world, by their absurd logic, is a riddle. Curiously enough both Muslims and Jews depend on the Jewish Old Testament to build on their own creeds, which are mostly tales of ‘an eye for an eye’.
    Jews in order to survive had think! And think deep, hard and fast, for centuries and centuries to survive extermination. For they were harassed by Christians and Muslims throughout history. Yet today they had became a powerful people in the world. This not trough massacring helpless nations or through procreation, such as the Catholics and Muslims did, but by their shear intellectual ability.
    That is the meeting point between the Jews and the Buddhists. Jews had to survive though they owned such a racist self-centred religion (Indeed to be a pure Jew one must have a Jewish mother) but by resisting destruction of their identity to remain Jewish.
    Buddhist were more victimised by the Judo Christian creed (excluding the Jews) than any religion on earth except perhaps the Zoroastrians. Why? In their core they were rationalist and learned to live with the truth. They did not believe in a creator God, Soul, heaven in some distant planet or for that matter a hell, but depended on the self-sufficiency. They lived with the reality of suffering and understood that while there is sensory greed there would be suffering to individuals. Such rational reality was hateful to the ‘God loves me and I love God’ club.
    Today the two whipping boys are the Jews and Sinhalese Theravada Buddhist, the main spreader of pernicious rationalism in the world. One is hated for holding on own to their cultural identity of remaining Jewish and believing that the true saviour is yet to come. The other for holding on to this obnoxious belief that there exists no God and no soul, as they are empty hollow thoughts.
    Being of sharpened intellect the Jews will be turning more and more to Buddhism to meet the reality of existence. Hence both these groups need each other, and they have been helping each other through the ages and should continue to do so. Or both would be vanquished.

    As for you, Fran Diaz, please do not twist Buddha’s teachings. The quote you have used is the stranded quote dealing with mind, matter, and the impermanency of a status quo to any condition.

    As I said if there is such a God then he is an idiot and so please go ahead and embrace him for all we care, but do not pull us down to your level. Indeed how can one have faith in such a none existing sadist!

  18. ranjith Says:

    My dear friend Dham,

    In Buddhist scriptures, nowhere you can find the God’s existence or non-existence in plain words.

    Through reading those scriptures, we could understand the God’s existence.

    Because of Pantheism prevailed at that time, he was silent in that subject.

    He knew the oneness of God, but he didn’t proclaim explicitly to the masses. This is my understanding.

    Some of Fran-diaz’s comments about God are appreciable.

    Dham, I am pleased to accept myself as Mada Pundithaya.

  19. Fran Diaz Says:

    Dear Mahinda Weerasinghe,

    I am not twisting the Buddha’s teachings. I do not believe in a Creator God who is a Being up there in the Heavens, pulling strings attached to poor human beings. I am merely stating that if there is the Dharma, these Laws must flow from some Source, call it Truth/God/Allah, or by any other name. I am not a learned person in the Buddhist Texts and am just an ordinary person attempting to find common ground in answers for all human beings in dealing with the issues of life, the transitory joys, pain & suffering and eventual death.

  20. Andare Says:

    The body is just clay doll. What is the energy that makes this clay doll walk, talk etc. The day this energy leaves you, then the clay doll falls back into the clay. Scientists do not know what this energy is, but all living things have this Life Energy pulsating inside them, and that is what the Buddha referred to, as Fran Diaz has pointed out from Walpola Rahula’s book ““O bhikkus, there is the unborn, ungrown, and unconditioned. Were there not there not the ungrown and unconditioned, there would be no escape for the born, grown, and conditioned. Since there is the unborn, ungrown and unconditioned, so there is escape for the born, grown, and conditioned. ….and so on.

  21. Andare Says:

    I forgot to mention an important thing Buddha said. It is in the Kalama sutta. He said not to believe texts, words, rationality or logic etc. Only depend on the experiential. Those who experienced this power in them by becoming one with it were singing praises of it. Read the Thera gatha, Theri gatha, or Songs of Kabir translated by Rabindranath Tagore, or The thousand songs of Milarepa. I can go on and on. There are so many books written in every country by people who had this experience of oneness with this power, this kindness, this love which has given us everything including free will to choose.

    Buddha kept saying do not blindly believe, which is exactly what the Buddhists in Sri Lanka do. They search the books and find what suits them and believe it and think they are right. Instead merely believing like the Christians do one must KNOW. There is a world of difference between KNOWING and BELIEVING. How does one KNOW. Many teachers have come again again on this earth to reveal this truth. It is so simple yet so subtle that unless we completely quieten our monkey in the head it will not reveal it self. When it does it feel as if heaven has opened its doors. That is why when the Buddha was asked by King Kosala why he and his followers were so happy, Buddha replied that he was enjoying a trancendental happiness which is not of this world. Once you KNOW then you can read the same books you read earlier in a state of confusion and truly understand what the Buddha was trying to say. Anyway it is said that for those who are really thirsty and seeking TRUTH then a teacher will appear.

    We are now in the end of the Kali Yuga and already you can see the faint glimmers of the light of truth coming through in every sphere of life. When Sat Yuga dawns then all the wrongs will be corrected and there will be no more weeping. All will be well. May all be well and Happy.

  22. Kit Athul Says:

    Gothama Buddha’s mother was Jewish. This is the lost tribe that went up the Himalays. Her name was Maha Maya. Maya is a Hebrew name. when we study Buddha’s stories Jews are referred as JUTHAKA BAMUNs. Bamuna means middle class or Upper class. When Buddha died his nephews lit the funereal fire. Their family name was LICHAVI and that is a Jewis name. His cousin was DAVIDATH. This is the same Jewish name, Deviduff that is used today. Gouthama Buddha’s family is a tribe by the name ASTECS. Gouthama Buddha has nothing to do with INDIANS. He was born in Nepal. He preached in India and that is all. He openly said that INDIANS ARE STUPID and if they cannot explain any thing the say Vishnu or Krishna told so.

  23. R.M.W Says:

    I regret very much if I hurt your sensibilities Fran Diaz. Unfortunately I felt you were misinterpreting the most vital aspect of Buddha’s teachings. I have being hasty on that matter for which I regret.
    With my limited knowledge I will try to state what are the vital axioms of Buddhism which even most Buddhist are uninformed.
    All creeds up to Buddha’s ministry believed in a ‘soul’ substance and one or other type of ‘God’ or ‘Gods’ with existential make up.
    With one exception. The Jains. They also believed in a ‘soul’ but rejected a creator ‘God’ curiously. They strongly believed in an action theory for negative things in life, so the best policy limit actions.
    Why I am stressing this ‘soul’ is, without including it no self respecting religion can survive with the self centered humanity.
    Indeed it is this soul substance the Judeo Christian ‘God’ is helping save and to offer its believers eternal life through it. Or the transmigration of the ‘soul’ to be absorbed by Brahma at the universal conflagration. So the soul is central to any man created religion in order to gain life everlasting.
    Until Buddha questioned this absurd belief.
    The following Dialogue translated by Professor Rhys
    Davids in 1899 is taken from Potthapada Sutta or as the translator calls
    it “The soul theory,” which goes on debunks this notion of a soul. Digha Nikaya, Potthapada Sutta, (194); Tr. as Dialogues of the Buddha part I,

    Then surely just so, Potthapâda, with those Samanas and
    Brahmans who postulate a soul happy and healthy after
    death. For they acknowledge that they know no such state
    in this world now. They acknowledge that they cannot say
    their own souls have been happy here even for half a day.
    And they acknowledge that they know no way, no method, of
    ensuring such a result. Now what think you of that,
    Potthapâda. That being so, does not their talk, too, turn out
    to be without good ground?’
    ‘For a truth, Sir, that being so, their talk would turn out to be
    without good ground.’

    Professor T.W.Rhys Davids who is the founder of the Pali Text Society and incidentally translated the passage you quoted, found this departure unique and singular, for Buddha’s teachings, for he comments in the introduction to the sutta such a manner;

    However, that may be, it is certain that all the religions, and
    all the philosophies, the existing records show to have existed
    in India, in the time when Buddhism arose, are based on
    this belief in a subtle but material ‘soul’ inside the body, and
    in shape like the body. It would scarcely be going too far to
    say that all religions, and all philosophies, then existing in
    the world, were based upon it. Buddhism stands alone among
    the religions of India in ignoring the soul. The vigour and
    originality of this new departure are evident from the
    complete isolation in which Buddhism stands, in this respect,
    from all other religious systems then existing in the world.
    And the very great difficulty which those European writers,
    who are still steeped in animistic preconceptions, find in
    appreciating, or even understanding the doctrine, may help
    us to realise how difficult it must have been for the originator
    of it to take so decisive and so far-reaching a step in religion
    and philosophy, at so early a period in the history of human
    thought.
    Nearly a quarter of a century ago I put this in the forefront
    of my first exposition of Buddhism. The publication, since
    then, of numerous texts has shown how the early Buddhist
    writers had previously followed precisely the same method.
    They reserve, as is only natural, the enthusiasm of their poetry
    and eloquence for the positive side of their doctrine, for
    Arahatship. But the doctrine of the impermanence of each
    and every condition, physical or mental; the absence of any
    abiding principle, any entity, any substance, any ‘soul’
    (anikkatâ, nissattatft, niggivat~, anattalakkhanatà, na
    h’ettha sassato bhâvo attâ vâ upalabbhati) is treated, from
    the numerous points of view from which it can be
    approached, in as many different Suttas
    The profound intelligence of Professor T.W.Rhys Davids, living as he did in a conservative Victorian Christian set up, is unique.
    Indeed once a ‘soul’ was eliminated the God nullified by the Buddha, for indeed what is this God going to save if there was no ‘soul’ substance to be.
    In time and up to today this ‘soul’ was well and truly exploited by the ‘God’ love me and I love God ‘people.
    In fact it is through this ‘soul’ concept that Judeo Christians controlled the dumb masses and send them to fight their endless wars.
    So what separated man from beast?
    We must credit Judeo-Christian thinking for coming out with a simple, clear,
    concise and a lucid definition. The puzzle lay in their specification of man
    in relation to the rest of the beasts. For, if the status of the animate beings
    in relation to man had not been made clear earlier except in the Hindu
    tradition, now we find them clearly defined. It was here they found man
    suddenly the owner of a “soul”. It is still fascinating to learn that
    someone had met this God, and he, I am happy to inform, has built us in his own image.

    The central dogma of the Judeo-Christian group of creeds is the
    belief in an indestructible “soul” and a single “creator” called God who created these souls.

    Now I am not going to interfere more on your spiritual emancipation, but point out a singular fact. Whether there exist a GOD or not, it does not lessen you’re suffering through illness, old age and mortality.
    Buddha’s teaching has taught us to face that reality and forget the God or Gods.

  24. Fran Diaz Says:

    It’s ok, Mahinda, I understand your feelings on this topic. Thank you for your response which I really appreciate. I do agree that the word ‘God’ has been maligned in many religions throughout the ages, using this word to provoke intense feelings for war with others.
    We are all in the same boat of Life, struggling with all the changing circumstances. Let us hope & pray and work toward a relative Peace for All, together. In the end, Truth will win since everyone wants to live, and be happy & healthy.

  25. Nalliah Thayabharan Says:

    Zionism was created by Theodor Herzel and others at the end of the 19th Century, and in that era it was commonplace to be colonialist, to be racist, to be super-nationalist, to adore the nation-state,so the idea of France for the French, Germany for the Germans, and then some state for the Jews. This all formed the basis for Zionism.
    Zionism and Judaism are contrary to each other. Because Judaism is universal and humane, and Zionism is exactly the opposite. It is very narrow, very nationalistic, racist, colonialist, and all this. There is no “National Judaism.” There is Zionism and there is Judaism, and they are completely different.
    Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism. Because Judaism – a Reform Movement- that is highly, highly ethical. And so, you cannot connect Zionism with “highly ethical.” You can only connect the words “aggressive,” “oppressive,” “stealing,” “robbing” with Zionism. But not “highly ethical.”

    “Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.” Menaheim Begin, 6th Prime Minister of Israel.

    Does this narrative sound familiar to you? Think Nazi

    Judaism in its correct form is not a religion of hate any more than are Christianity, Islam or Buddhism. Zionism, however, is a secular, geopolitical system of hate…it is NOT a religion. It is a power cult (hiding behind the Jewish faith) of death, greed, lying, avarice and self-aggrandizement which views with contempt and derision all who do not subscribe or submit to its dogma.

    Today’s Zionists are largely the descendants of the hideous butchers who slaughtered over 30 million Russian Christians to force communism on Russia. These are the descendants of the murderous thugs who murdered 1.2 to 1.5 million Armenians and do not want to ‘talk about it’. Just this year, Congress voted to recognize the Armenian genocide but the AIPAC and ADL Zionist gangsters swung into action and forced the cancellations of the Resolution.

    And the US wonders why Armenia does not trust Zionist Jews and US at all.

    These are the conniving, lying, genocidal beasts who wanted Iraq stomped to death by US and UK so Iraqis could not benefit from their own oil and natural gas wealth.

    These are the same demented nuclear terrorists in control of 500-600 thermonuclear WMD who are now trying to force a war with Iran…even though Russia is already on the record saying that ANY attack on Iran will be viewed as an attack on Russian interests.

    Zionists are always chattering about ‘peace’ but, in reality, it is the LAST thing they want. Peace is not profitable and is simply not going to pave the way for Zionism to dominate the planet. However, divide and conquer just might. This is even all the more mind-boggling to most clueless Americans who cannot understand how a minority group of Zionists within the world’s total Jewish population of about 15 million can have come to control so much of the Western world.

  26. Lorenzo Says:

    Dear Kit Athul,

    “Gothama Buddha’s mother was Jewish.”

    Please don’t make this type of unsubstantiated claims. If backed by real facts, I would love it but not otherwise.
