There seems to be a cacophony of confusion in the Western world about who or what a “Jew” is, and some of this convolution is the Jews’ own doing, or rather it is due to Jewry’s shockingly wide spectrum of styles* and the constant outflux and influx of people to and from the Jewish identity through the centuries. As ambitious as this may sound to this demoralized civilization that has largely played the role of the megabanks’ bitch, let’s try to clear the air on who or what a “Jew” is, shall we?
- Who or what is a “Jew”?
There is no one definition of Jew, so for God’s sake don’t listen to those who claim to have “the one definition” of Jew! This subject matter simply demands maturity.
Etymologically, the term Jew (alt. Juive) comes from the name Judah and is a shortening of Judahite. The name Judah can mean:
a) the fourth son whose parents were both Jacob (a.k.a. Israel) and Leah;
b) one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel (a.k.a. Jacob); and/or
c) the southern kingdom formed by the post-Solomonic split of the Kingdom of Israel.
Modernly, Jew can mean:
a) a descendant of the people who once practiced classical Judaism, i.e. kept the Abrahamic Covenant (Heb. Berith), observed the Mosaic Law (Heb. Torah), and frequented the Solomonic (or later Persian) Temple (Heb. Hekal) (see Jewry, Sephardic Jews);
b) one who currently does one (or ideally all) of the three above things (bearing in mind that there is no generally recognized temple that would enable full Judaism to exist, nor has there been such since c. AD 70; see Judaism); and/or
c) a subject of Judah, a long defunct kingdom.
In none of these ancient or modern senses of the term Jew should it on any account be conflated with Israelite or Hebrew, much less Semite. (Statistically, everyone currently alive who isn’t full-blooded Inca [and very possibly them too] descends from Abraham.)
- Where are the Jews today?
In the full, objective sense there are no Jews currently on Planet Earth. This is chiefly due to the fact that Judaism cannot fully express itself without a central temple (and no, the “wailing wall” doesn’t count!) or at minimum the Arc of the Covenant, which was the Temple’s core symbol, for it contained the Decalogue and Moses’s remains and when last I checked it is in the hands of Egyptian Christian monastics. In concrete terms, what is left of Judaism to those who self-identify with it are its secondary rather than the primary elements.
0.2% of the world claims to be Jewish, yet of that some 90% are of an Ashkenazic ethnicity and cannot trace their lineage, DNA, or folklore to any Israelite tribe. Moreover, most so-called “Jews” have gone out of their way to buck classical Jewish traditions in favor of Talmudic and Rabbinical inventions, not to mention Khazar culture. For an example, the vast majority “Jews” from medievality forward follow a matriarchal ancestral lineage, contrasted with the patriatchal model of their oldest scriptures. (!) True traditional Jews, then, are few and far between, and the material resources available for the religious observance their claimed identity would theoretically stipulate are likewise scarce and peripheral.
- Was Hitler a Jew?
To the complete shock of most Westerners and those living in World-Bank-managed vassal-states, many documented facts support the theory that Adolf Hitler the Nazi was in fact an Ashkenazi, a fact that he felt the understandable need to go to great lengths to conceal from the public. All told, these are probably the three most significant documented facts supporting Adolf Hitler’s Khazar-Jewish roots as well as his Israeli political ties:
a) Jewish body. Adolf Hitler was circumcised and never let his doctor see his “schlong” (a Yiddish term meaning “snake”).
b) Jewish lineage. The Führer’s paternal grandfather was a Jewish trader. Hitler ordered his father’s native village records destroyed and its cemetery demolished and paid hush money to his nephew William.
c) Jewish policy. So far as we can tell from the documented orders he gave, Chancellor Hitler complied fully with the Transfer Agreement by maintaining a (Wannsee) Protocol of emigration (never of extermination) from 1933 until at least 1944.
Moreover, political Zionism’s undisputed yet puzzling founding father Theodor Herzl wrote in his diary: “An excellent idea enters my mind. To attract outright anti-Semites and to make them the destroyers of Jewish wealth.”
* Surprisingly, “Jews” range from those who observe the Torah and ignore everything else, to those who explicitly reject the Torah as do the disciples of Sabbatai Zevi (“Sabbatean Jews”, founded in 1666) and relatedly the followers of Jacob Frank (“Frankists”)!
