Enlightening, fun, but Completely Biased
, June 1, 2008
This review is from: The Synagogue of Satan (Paperback)
First of all I'm an American Jew. I was lucky to have grown up overseas and did much travelling, and was able to meet people from all over the world. I remember standing on a mountain in Jorden overlooking Israel and the Black Sea when I was 12, and my guide didn't know I was Jewish. He was telling me his criticisms of Israel and Jews. I was fascinated to hear from the other side, to hear their story.
I am not afraid to read criticisms of my fellow Jews. I seek out all point of view. My Jewish education was reprehensible and biased, and misleading in terms of the true intention of the Jewish wisdom and tradition. There are many Jewish people I can't stand who represent much of what is written about in this book. I do NOT doubt the truth of much of what is in the book, in terms of what PEOPLE have done, especially the Rothschild family. I do a great deal of reading about conspiracy theory (among other things), and interacting with people on these subjects. Very little of this is new. But as with these things, I got some new information out it.
That being said....I have also met many people who are NOT Jewish, who are just as reprehensible. The education of Christians, Muslims, well actually our own US educational is just as reprehensible as Jewish education. It is biased, devoid of the discussion of acceptance of true complexity of world events and human behavior. I have an MBA from a top school, and these masters programs in management TOTALLY FAIL to teach us the MOST IMPORTANT facts of business -- the level of deception in human behavior. Schools skip the complexity that must be examined if you are to seek the truth and try to do you part in making this world better for our children. If the Almighty Himself (whatever form you believe it to be) came down and revealed itself to try to help us, two things would happen. First people would be offended by the almighty, because he/she would not be what they expect him/her to be. Secondly, they would ignore what he/she had to say because fixing our problems would take too much effort and wouldn't be fun enough or give us individuals enough power.
I'm not sure what the objective of the author is, but if you appear biased, and put down the Jews like this, you will do nothing but spread the same hate that you claim Jews represent. When I read the introduction (written by Texe Marrs), I got a big red flag, because he was so offensive, even to somebody like me, who can't stand a good percentage of the Jews that I meet, and the people that control things in this world. Texe was pushing Christianity as the answer -- I'm not even going to go down THAT path...every religion is used for the pursuit of power by individuals in ways that are the antithesis of the intention of the religion (the scary part that these people probably believe what they're doing) Texe didn't mention this. Regarding Jews, it's not because these people are Jewish, it's because they are reprehensible human beings. And they not reprehensible because they're evil, they have mostly been brainwashed by our society and they're afraid. They're probably hopeless, the point is to help their children not spread the hate -- to let them know that there are adults out there who understand them and the world they are inherting. And the very people that have done this (brainwashed us) are probably the Rothschild's and friends, who happen to be Jewish. But they have NOTHING in common with me and the vast majority of my fellow Jews, as well as my fellow Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, and so on. The Rothschilds are pigs who probably think they're doing the right thing. And you know something, when I meet so many pigs in the corporate world, and understand the nature of human beings, sometimes I think, maybe we need people like the Rothschilds and the Bildebers, etc to control us pigs, and unfortunatley I'm one of them. We're all pigs, don't single out Jews and don't single out the Rothschilds. The bottom line, is power needs to be distributed better. If you controled the world, and you were benevolent, ultimately your children or your children's children would ruin it all, that is for sure. It doesn't matter what religion or creed they come from. The old saying...absolute power corrupts absolutely.
But I know I'm a pig, I'm a human. And I have the choice to know when I FEEL like a pig, but I don't have to act that one. The acting is all that matters.
So in summary, I don't mind if people read the book. It's informative, but don't forget that it's EXTREMELY biased.
