ARE JEWS THE "GRINCH" OF CHRISTMAS?
By Rev. Ted Pike
13 Dec 06
Last week an ultraorthodox Jewish rabbi demanded that if Sea-Tac
in Seattle did not allow a menorah along with their display of 14
Christmas trees he would file a federal lawsuit. The airport removed
the trees, fearing even more religious minorities would demand their
symbols also be represented. Result: lots of bad blood at Christmas
time, most vented at the rabbi.
The removal of the Christmas trees is seen as a
disaster in Christian-Jewish relations. Actually, this episode is
a great blessing to the whole world. At last we see an undisguised
reality: Talmudic Judaism (that Judaism founded and guided by the
ancient Pharisees) is vehemently opposed to the furtherence of Christian.
Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky's successful interruption of the Christmas
spirit at Sea-Tac spotlights a well-documented fact: For at least
the last century, organized anti-Christian Jewry, led by B'nai B'rith
International, has relentlessly opposed Christians, their symbols,
and civilization. Yet Jewish activists, from international bankers
to street-fighting revolutionaries, have undermined Christian society
in a manner far worse than forcing removal of 14 Christmas trees.
History of Anti-Christianity
In 1917 Jacob Shiff, a Reform Jew, B'nai B'rith initiate, and head
of the New York banking house of Kuhn-Loeb, along with other B'nai
B'rith bankers (the Rothschilds in England and Warburgs in Germany)
financed the Bolshevik revolution. Thousands of Jewish commissars
not only desecrated Christian culture in Russia but initiated the
slaughter of 66 million Russian "goyim," or Gentiles, including
countless Christians. 1
In 1919 Shiff's Kuhn-Loeb (now Chase Manhattan) financed another
prong of B'nai B'rith's attack on Christian civilization, the Jewish
Hollywood movie industry. 2 Jewish TV and film media continues to
fulfill the same mission bequeathed to communism: Break down Christian
civilization so a new Jewish world order can supplant it.
In 1913 B'nai B'rith created its Anti-Defamation League. ADL was
first of a cluster of Jewish "civil liberties” groups
ostensibly formed to combat prejudice and "hate speech." In
reality, these groups serve one purpose that is very full of hate:
eroding Christian influence and freedom of Christian expression.
- Who is almost always behind attacks on Christian symbols, especially
at Christmas and Easter? (See, "More
Christian Bashing from Media This Easter?","Was
the Talmud Behind NBC's 'Book of Daniel'?", "The
Jews Behind Da Vinci Code")
- Who files the most lawsuits against prayer in schools, public
places or Jesus’ name, or against display of the Ten Commandments?
Speech at Air Force Academy Not Free")
- Who defends and promotes pornography, abortion, and homosexual
rights in the courts? (See, "ACLU
Top Heavy with Jews")
Almost invariably, the above is
the work of Jewish-dominated civil liberties groups such as ADL,
American Civil Liberties Union, Southern Poverty Law Center,
People for the American Way, or an army of private Jewish activists
most of whom are affiliated with ADL or B'nai B'rith.
Blessing in Disguise
The service that Rabbi Bogomilsky performed for the world is to
give a face, ethnicity, and religion to a supposedly nebulous "satanic" force
bedeviling Christianity. Hopefully, the public's eyes will now open
to an inarguable fact: Except for Satanism, Talmudic Judaism is the
most anti-Christian force on the planet. That's why Jesus called
it the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 3:9).
Orthodox Rabbi Daniel Lapin, opponent of ADL, is mortified by Rabbi
Bogomilsky's senseless provocation of Christians and anti-Semites.
Calling for damage control from Seattle's Jewish community, he summoned
Jews to help reinstall the Christmas trees.
The potential of this incident to tarnish Judaism's reputation
is considerable. Bogomilsky's lawyer said, "There is a concern
that the Jewish community will be portrayed as the Grinch."
But Rabbi Lapin astutely responds, "No, Mr. Lawyer, it is
not that the Jews will be 'portrayed as the Grinch. Sadly, now we
are the Grinch. You made us the Grinch.'"
Such Jewish embarrassment and desire to make amends is long overdue
and very healthy. There is little hope of restraining the jackals
of Jewish anti-Christ activism unless many more Jews like Rabbi Lapin
become so embarrassed at the bad behavior of their theological brethren
that they call a halt to their attack on Christianity and free speech.
Happily, Lapin's request for restoration of the trees has been
heeded. After great public outcry from people of all faiths, the
organization with which Bogomilsky is associated, Chabad-Lubavitch,
backed down and canceled their threatened federal lawsuit against
the airport. The trees are going back up.
Greater Threat Looms
Yet, a much greater outrage than removal of Christmas trees looms
against Christianity worldwide: ADL/B'nai B'rith's Christian-persecuting
anti-hate laws. Perhaps as early as January 2007, ADL will reintroduce
to Congress its federal anti-hate bill, the "Local Law Enforcement
Enhancement Act." ADL wants to end free speech in America, especially
for Christians, just as they have done in Canada, Australia, and
most European countries. (See, "Democrats’ Control Means
Hate Bill Will Pass")
How can ADL be restrained from achieving this monstrous goal? Answer:
the same way Rabbi Bogomilsky was defeated. The formula is simple:
Correctly identify ADL as the Jewish architects of freedom-stealing
hate laws throughout the western world. If this is done widely enough
(as I have done in hundreds of media interviews), the outrage of
humanity and the embarrassment of the Jewish community will escalate.
Jews and Gentiles will speak out, as Rabbi Lapin is doing. When that
happens, ADL will have to pull back in its pursuit of passage of
their federal hate bill, just as Rabbi Bogomilsky had to pull back
This is not a time to "forgive" Rabbi Bogomilsky or Jewish
activists who strain to take away freedom by hate laws. They have
not asked our forgiveness. Instead, such anti-Christ activists are
to be viewed as social menaces of the first order, to be publicly
identified by race and religion as the worst enemies of Christian
Are the Jewish people the "Grinch" of Christmas? Of course
not. But their evil Jewish leaders and activists are. As long as
they are allowed to subvert freedom and silence Christian expression,
yet remain unidentified and unchallenged, there can be no peace on
