Editorial Reviews


'Judaism Discovered is an outstanding guide...should be read by every intelligent Christian.'
Paul Foote, PhD., California State University, Fullerton --The Intelligent Christian Guide to Judaism

'Judaism Discovered is a mine of information about Talmudic Judaism. I am astonished by the quality and the abundance of your documentation. Your many quotations from the Talmud and rabbis constitute indisputable argumentation concerning the anti-Christian enterprise of Judaism, and also the compromises of the governments and the Catholic Church with Judaism...I wish success for your book...' --Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, Econe, Switzerland

More About the Author

Michael Hoffman is a New York native and a former reporter for the Associated Press. He studied under Faiz Abu-Jaber and Richard Funk at the State University of New York at Oswego. Hoffman is the author of seven books of history. In addition, he has written the introductions to modern reprints of "The Traditions of the Jews" by Johann Andreas Eisenmenger, and "The Talmud Tested" by Alexander McCaul, D.D.

Hoffman is the executive editor of the bulletin, "Revisionist History," which is published six times a year. He is married and resides in north Idaho.

Hoffman writes:

The gatekeepers are determined to demonize this writer with stigmas such as "holocaust denier" and "anti-semite." These scurrilous libels are devices for intimidating potential readers, colleagues and supporters, and limiting the exchange of knowledge between a scholar and fellow truth-seekers. My authentic views are as follows: Judaic people suffered severe and unconscionable persecution during World War II, including mass murder at the hands of the Nazis. I deplore these crimes and the criminal Nazi ideology which inspired and directed them. At the same time, it is necessary to have the courage to point out the many parallels between Nazi ideology and the Israeli Zionist ideology which is engaged in the on-going dispossession and murder of Palestinians.

Concerning "anti-semitism": this phrase is supposed to denote racial loathing of Judaic persons, but is often employed to stigmatize those who dare to offer a narrative of Judaism which challenges the rabbinic narrative, or who dissent from the received opinion concerning Israeli actions in Palestine. Radical Judaic dissent from Talmudism and Zionism has largely been excluded from consideration. Consider that Norman Finkelstein and Noam Chomsky are routinely accused of being "anti-semitic." This pseudo-scientific phrase is employed in many cases merely in order to gain advantage over political rivals. My work is based on love and not hatred. My targets are ideologies and theologies, not people.

I will not be silenced. I have as much right to question and investigate Judaism, or any other "ism," as anyone has to question Catholicism. Knowledge is not advanced by submitting to special immunities for one particular media-favored creed. It is not anti-Italian to point out iniquity in Renaissance or modern Catholicism; nor is it anti-Judaic to discover turpitude in the rabbinic Talmudic theology. If contemporary Catholicism is a form of oppression, then it is a liberating act to free Italians from its grasp. If contemporary Orthodox Judaism is a form of oppression, then it is a liberating act to free Judaic persons from Talmudic supremacy and tyrannical micro-management of their daily lives.

My work transcends tribal atavisms and resentments. For example, in "Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare" I sought to deconstruct the command ideology of the Cryptocracy, while exploring an epistemology capable of inspiring higher consciousness by decoding the esoteric manipulation of thought patterns and the 'group mind' which impede our ability to transcend humanity's perpetual squabbles and simian warfare.

In the book "They Were White and They Were Slaves" I studied anew the circumstances surrounding so-called 'white indentured servitude' and discovered the prevalence of a far more onerous chattel enslavement of seventeenth century whites in America, and the dehumanized status of poor whites over the next two centuries.

In my latest work, "Usury in Christendom: The Mortal Sin that Was and Now is Not," I argue that during the Renaissance, gentile usurers gained firm purchase inside the Roman Church by scapegoating rival Judaic usurers. I also demonstrate that early Puritans, far from being the stereotypical skinflints and shylocks of legend, denounced and opposed usury, even as Renaissance Catholic popes and prelates were granting permission for it and benefiting from its proceeds.

My non-conforming research and writing do not fit simplistic Left/Right political or denominational categories, and because I violate taboos enforced by hysterical partisans, my name and reputation have been unfairly blackened. Truth-seekers with the curiosity and good will to look beyond the libelous opprobrium put forth by self-appointed thought police, will encounter in my writing, challenges to the consensus across a broad spectrum of revisionist history, Christian exegesis and Fortean epistemology.

I loaned one copy out, so bought a second. It's that good (and scholarly).

Being an evangelical, fundamentalist Christian, I'm preprogrammed to be Zionist and support Israel, even to the point of practicing pro-Zionist arguments, etc.

Mr. Hoffman has opened my eyes to the hijacking and manipulation of Jews by Talmudists. Mr. Hoffman is consistent in separating a hate-filled belief system from any genetic group. This is a book filled with love, and motivated from a desire to expose a darkness that continues to hurt more people than we can imagine.

Every Jewish person and every hijacked evangelical/fundamentalist Christian ought to read this book.

If one wants to read antisemitic literature, read the Old Testament. There was a reason all those prophets were executed, and it had to do with religious leadership that was often set against God.

As opposed to some of the 'non-reviews' posted on this book, I will actually review it from having knocked back this behemoth over my vacation week. Hoffman's latest work eclipses everything he has done to date. When Hoffman says he has spent more than a decade researching the Talmud and historical Orthodox writers and writings, he is not kidding. The extensive footnoting and source material he quotes from and cites would take 10 years to digest, even if you were a full time student. Books this well documented are nominated for literary awards, as this one should be.

What this book is: Orthodox sages and rabbis talking about God, other rabbis and their flocks, and non-Jews, in their own books. 99% of the Talmudic source material referred to comes from the works of the Talmudic sages and various grand rebbes themselves. You get a sprinkling of quotes to major Israeli and American newspapers as well. Nothing this book refers to was culled from any non-Jewish source.

What this book is not: Anti-Jewish, or an argument for any violence or maltreatment or legal restriction of or upon the Jewish community. If anything, when you read this work and realize what Talmudic tin gods really believe(d), you will rank the Talmud in a far worse category than Mein Kampf, or any other traditional 'hate' tract.

What this book accomplishes beyond a shadow of a doubt: I will make an analogy - The Talmud and orthodox talmudists are akin to a business that keeps two sets of accounting books - one set of books they show to the internal revenue service (non-Jews), the 'other' set of books is known only to corporate insiders - the 'other set' shows the true financial condition and profit margin of the 'company'.

Michael Hoffman has written what will likely, in 50 years, be considered the most important work on Judaism.

To clear up a couple of misconceptions, let me explain what this book is NOT.
1) The book is not the least bit 'anti-Semite'. In the pages, the love for the individual is demonstrated along with the truth about the abhorrent behaviors of organized Judaism.

2) The book is not fanciful or poorly researched. I have studied tens of thousands of pages of Judaic religious literature both in English and Hebrew, and I am stunned at Hoffman's knowledge of the Talmud within the 1102 pages. If you have in your possession - or have access to - the Talmud, I encourage you to research along in the first pages to understand further, as you will be impressed.

3) The book is not hateful. The point of this book is solely factual. The writer does not appear to be writing out of spite or hate, but rather is presenting facts and allowing the facts, given IN context, to speak for themselves.

So what exactly IS Judaism Discovered? Let the subtitle speak for itself. Judaism Discoverd is "A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit". Hoffman goes in great depth to show how Judaism is exactly that.

The beauty of this book is that this it done by induction. Hoffman takes the facts and then forms his overarching theory - he did not take a pre-conceived theory and deduce or manipulate the data. To compare to the practice of a good scholar, Hoffman practices exegesis, not eisegesis. He lets the facts speak, he does not manipulate the facts.

Thus - allow me to summarize in 5 words. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
This is a first class work of an erudite and impartial author. Before I write a review here, I would like to copy the letter I wrote to Mr Bezos and which received no answer as of today :

Dear Mr Bezos,

I am concerned about your policy of making books available in a selective way (CENSORSHIP) in general, and about Amazon's treatment of Hoffman's recent book _Judaism Discovered_ in particular.

Currently, this book is only available through Amazon associates and resellers at a far greater price than the price the author asks for. Moreover, the author has plenty of copies on supply for Amazon to sell it, but Amazon still does not sell his book.

I am a medical doctor, a reviewer, and I bought a certain quantity of books from Amazon in recent years. Also I made comments, reviews, and even joined Amazon associates. My previous letter to you concerning Hoffman's recent book has not been answered.

Should I not receive a satisfactory and full explanation of Amazon's censorship of Hoofman's Judaism Discovered, here is what I'll do :

01. Stop buying from Amazon;
02. Stop reviewing books for Amazon;
03. Return current orders and leave Amazon Associates for good;
04. Delete my previous reviews and close my Amazon account for good;
05. Make all this public and use my not inconsiderable influence to stop censorship at Amazon for good.

Dr Dan Waniek MD, PhD
