Dailycaller.com: Imagine if you picked up your morning paper and the news story read “Judaism’s inadvertent effects on adherents.”
Imagine if article’s non-Jewish author wrote, “The Torah strictly bans the consumption of pork, leading to the virtual disappearance of domesticated pigs in Jewish-majority areas, then their replacement by sheep and goats. These herds have overgrazed the land, which has led, to “a catastrophic deforestation.””
But it gets worse. Imagine if, after bizarrely blaming Jewish dietary habits for ecological damage, the non-Jewish author blamed “high Jewish government standards” for slavery.
“Judaism’s unattainably high standards for governmental behavior meant historically that existing leaders, with their many faults, alienated Jewish subjects, which meant Jewish governments systematically deployed slaves as soldiers.”
Then imagine if the non-Jewish writer claimed Judaism is primitive, and teaches hatred and violence against non-Jews.
“Jewish doctrine ingrains a sense of Jewish superiority, a disdain for the faith and civilization of others, which has obstructed Jews from learning modernization from the West. Those scriptures also imbue a hostility toward non-Jews, which in turn generates an assumption that non-Jews harbor a like hostility toward Jews.”
