How do we turn this around? Start by reading Pardes.
more convinicing by the fact that Shamir is Jewish. He has
now converted to Christian Orthodoxy and to some extent, this book
explains why he did so. He uses the traditonal four fold analysis
that the Jewish philosophers and mystics use to interpret the Tor-
ah, but he uses it to analyze Judaism itself. He concludes that
they have ceased to worship God and for a long time now have ac-
tually worshiped themselves-Jehovah being just themselves writ
large. This process started before Christ, but the murder of Christ
was the epitome of it. One caveat though: this book may not be for
the beginer because they will find it unbelievable. To get the most
out of Shamir's book, you already have to know the territory: how
the Jews take credit for Christ's death and even boast about it. That
gentiles are animals who only exist to serve the Jews, etc. All this
and more is found in their secret scripture, the Talmud. Once the
reader has researched this for himself, then he is ready for "Pardes"
by Israel Shamir.
In Pardes, Shamir deals with Jewish ideology, which he sees as the cause of current events in the Middle East. Inspired by great Jewish dissidents like Simone Weil, Shamir finds Judaism problematic and calls for the dismantlment of the Jewish Apartheid state. Instead, he favours equal rights for all in one singel state.
Pardes can be said to be Shamir's explanation to why he came to denounce Judaism and embrace Jesus Christ as the savior of man. It's a great book everyone interested in Jewish ideology must read.
