From the horse’s mouth

 

I would like to create a page devoted to the quotes and comments which the JCN themselves have stated.

 

Below are some examples. I would appreciate any contributions. I aim to regularly add to this page.

 

Rabbi Kook the Elder, the revered father of the messianic tendency in Jewish fundamentalism, said,

“The difference between a Jewish soul and the souls of non-Jews—all of them in all different levels—is greater and deeper than the difference between a human soul and the souls of cattle.”

 

“Because Gentiles are not human, Gentiles are owed no debt of morality or decency – not honesty”

[Baba Kamma 113a], not property [Baba Mezia 24a], not even life! — “The best of the Gentiles should all be killed” Soferim 15, 10

 

“Some of the Turks and the nomads in the North, and the Blacks and the nomads in the South, and those who resemble them in our climates. And their nature is like the nature of mute animals, and according to my opinion they are not on the level of human beings, and their level among existing things is below that of a man and above that of a monkey, because they have the image and the resemblance of a man more than a monkey does.” Maimonides explaining who is not fit “to participate in the world to come,” 

— Guide for the Perplexed, Book III, chapter 51 cited in Israel Shahak, Hebrew University Professor, Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of 3000 Years. London: Pluto Press, 1997. p. 25.

These quotes with thanks from John Kaminski’s latest e-mail
