Israel Jewish Laws and the Kingdom of Evil
Teaching for doctrines the commandments of men

A horrific example is Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People, a bill proposed by Kadima member Avi Dichter. In its short form, it is referred to as the Leom Law or the Leom-State Law (for definitions of “leom” and “umma” click here), in other words the Jewish-State Law, which determines the nature of the state of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. It solidifies the status of its minorities as second-class citizens. By the end of 2012, less than 40 members of the Knesset support the legislation of this law, this is not enough for it to be approved. Yet, this may change in the future. In contrast, several religious laws have already been legislated, cementing the inherent discrimination of the Jewish State. Jesus already rejected these practices, saying in referral to the Pharisees "teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" (Matthew 15:9). These laws are mere words of evil men; as preached by Israel with regard to Nazi laws, obeying them is collaborating with crime. Since I will probably be criticized for these words, let me state that they are supported by the Israeli Supreme Court. In the 1956 Suez War, a unit of Mishmar HaGvul, the Border Police, was responsible for the Kafr Qasim Massacre. on the second day of the war, a curfew was imposed on Kafr Qasim. Villagers who had worked in the fields and were unaware of the curfew were shot upon their return; 49 of them died. The Israeli Supreme Court rendered the attack illegal and ruled that there is an obligation of soldiers to disobey manifestly illegal orders. Israeli schools teach that all Germans that obeyed Nazi laws shared the guilt of that regime. Doctrines of men cannot pass for obligatory laws.
The Mechanics of Jewish Discrimination
The declarative document founding the State of Israel includes explicit directives. In the lack of a constitution, the Declaration of Independence is the best document one has in order to analyze the legitimacy of the current situation. Its wording is clear: "it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and it will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations." Yet, the young country was quick to ignore the conditions imposed on it by the UN, it made a joke of its own declaration of independence, and legislated several laws that created an inherent discrimination in favor of those whom the state defined as Jews.
It is painful to see the magnitude of effort the State of Israel invests in assuring the Jewish Sabbath and Holidays (and it doesn't matter if they clearly violate the spirit of their religious laws), when the Muslim Friday and the Christian Sunday are regularly violated without second thoughts. Yet, the foundation document of the state promised a different reality. Try pointing that out to an Israeli official and a "You are an anti-Semite" campaign will be declared against you, including free fireworks courtesy of the ADL.
The Unbearable Hypocrisy of Secular States
This article begins with a picture of a protest in Jerusalem. Secular and religious Jews often protest against each other; both sides claim to be violated by the other. Yet, a recent poll conducted by Yedioth Aharonot, the largest Hebrew newspaper, found that 55% of the Jewish public supports keeping the abovementioned religious laws, despite only 20% of this public being strictly religious. Out of the 55% in favor of keeping religious laws, 43% claimed that they wanted to preserve the State's Jewish identity. In other words, the Jewish public supports keeping Israel as a discriminating, racist state.
I apologize for what I am about to say; I have no intentions to offend my Western readers but to point out a disturbing characteristic. Several years ago, I arrived in Bolivia; my first local contacts were within local churches. One day, while speaking with a local pastor, I commented on one of the beautiful texts used during marriage ceremonies. "This is a very old text," the pastor told me. "How old," I asked. "Almost 300 years," he said; seeing my silent reaction he added "of course that's nothing to you." Western democracies are young. They like to pretend the world began with the French and American revolutions. If pressed hard, they will admit to knowledge of the Peace of Westphalia Agreement, signed in 1648, which eventually created the secular states we all suffer from these days. Yet, humanity lived its first eon quite well without these corrupt states.
Before Uncle Afghani, the Queen of the Bloody Sunday, and the Eldest in Zion attack me for these words, I recommend that they look into the closest mirror. They run states that do not recognize "good" and "evil;" that's why they like to demonize all religions. They do not recognize the rights of people that are not members of their states (this is why they conduct such profitable wars). They allow violation of people if that is allowed by the laws they legislated the night before, while the people were asleep. These are doctrines of men. This is evil. You cannot legislate "good" and "evil;" being "good" is a command of God, which cannot be overrun by secular states, no matter what laws they have. Israel's legislation of "religious laws" is a farce; the state's actions speak for itself, transforming its society not into a democracy, but into a Kingdom of Evil.
