Book Review December 25, 2002
Hate Thy Neighbor As Thyself
By Mark Ames Browse author Email
Page 3 of 4
This is when the apotheosis of Jewish self-hatred arrives: The New Testament.

When it comes to a book that makes you really hate Jews, the New Testament has no equal. I cannot understand, reading it now, how anyone can pretend that the Jews don't come off as the greatest villains in the history of mankind, and that the New Testament isn't the source and the end-all in Jew-hatred propaganda. The Koran has nothing of the sort of Jew-hatred that the New Testament has-which might explain why Jews were always much better off under Islamic rule than under Christian rule until recently. Then again, Jews wrote the New Testament, and like I said, there's no anti-Semitism like Jewish self-hatred, which is what lies at the heart of the New Testament.

I want to repeat this: In terms of sheer anti-Semitism-inspiring power, the New Testament makes Mein Kampf look like The Nanny. I've read Mein Kampf, and I gotta tell ya, I was expecting that book to be a lot more evil than it was. Hitler comes off as just a whiny fag; if he were born today, he'd have a Robert Smith hairdo and a stack of Depeche Mode records. The case Hitler makes against the Jews pales in comparison to the case that Jews make against themselves in the New Testament. Hitler would be booed off the stage of a Jewish self-hating convention; he'd get beaned with pomegranates and hooked with a shepherd's crook in the middle of his act. Hitler whines about the Jews being rich, manipulative backstabbers. Well boo-fucking-hoo, Adolf! You sound like a fucking taxi driver! After a few chapters of Mein Kampf, instead of getting some kind of evil rush, I wanted to say, like Hans and Franz, "Oo, listen to ze little girlie-girl Hitler who cahn't even handle ze juden beekahz zey haff ze mah-nee. Vhat's za matter, afraid aff a few juden, huh, girlie-girl?"

Mein Kampf is Sesame Street anti-Semitism, which is why it didn't last more than a generation. But accuse Jews over and over of killing God's own son, as the Jews do in the New Testament, and then you've got an anti-Semitism that lasts thousands of years - which is really what the Jews of that time dreamed of. You can almost see them leaping in their sandals and giving each other high-fives for finally having found the ultimate expression of Jewish self-hatred. What Christian wouldn't run amok through the Jewish ghetto burning everyone alive after reading the Gospels? Any sane man would kill the murderers of his own son. But the murderers of God's son... you'd do more than just kill them! You'd... you'd... well, just look at history and you know what you'd do: just what the Christians have done.

Given the New Testament's driving force, why is it that we pretend that Christianity isn't dangerous and evil, but Nazism is? It's not as though Christians don't have a comparable Jew-kill record to match Hitler's. Beats me... but all I know is that I'm probably setting myself and millions of other Jews up for a helluva pogrom just by a talking about this. (Which means I'm just dabbling in good ol' Jewish self-hatred of the sort that produced Christianity.)

A few other comments about the New Testament: before reading it I seemed to remember, from all my years in churches, that Jesus was a pretty nice guy and I really felt sorry for him, especially the massive Jesus on the cross that I'd stare at in Sacred Heart Church. Not after reading the Gospels. Jesus is...scary. He makes the world out to be a horrible place and says things like "To him who has much he will have everything; to him who has little he will have nothing." He's pissed off in that quiet, elliptical way that makes you worried and keeps things tense. I'd like to stay out of his way, but according to him, you can't. Each and every one of us is standing in the headlights of Jesus's Peterbilt. And each of us is like Dennis Weaver from that first Spielberg movie - except that Jesus's truck would reappear even after crashing over the cliff. And that scares me. And billions of people before me.
