Is­rael’s 70 Years of Crimes Against Chil­dren

Trillions - - Contents -

Please note: The fol­low­ing con­tains dis­turb­ing in­for­ma­tion re­lated to Jewish and Is­raeli cul­tural and in­sti­tu­tional abuse of chil­dren. While it may make read­ers un­com­fort­able, the child vic­tims de­serve to have the crimes known. Jus­tice and preven­tion of more crimes can only come with ex­po­sure and aware­ness.

The au­thor of this ar­ti­cle is not anti-semitic (a Semite is a per­son from South­west Asia); nor am I anti-jewish. I have noth­ing against in­di­vid­u­als of the Jewish faith and have friends who call them­selves Jewish. How­ever, there are some fun­da­men­tal aspects of the Jewish cul­ture that I strongly dis­agree with.

It is not the in­ten­tion of this ar­ti­cle to sin­gle out Is­rael or Jews. Many coun­tries and groups of peo­ple have en­gaged in hor­rific crimes against chil­dren and con­tinue to do so. How­ever, Is­rael’s sav­agery goes well be­yond any­thing found in most any other coun­try be­cause it is so in­sti­tu­tion­al­ized.

Is­rael’s con­trol of mass me­dia en­sures that most peo­ple are not aware of its 70 years of crimes against chil­dren.

Not all Is­raelis are bad – many of them are good, hon­est and com­pas­sion­ate peo­ple. How­ever, most Is­raelis sup­port a govern­ment that en­gages in un­for­giv­able crimes.

Mod­ern Is­rael’s evil is clearly demon­strated in its crimes against chil­dren. Since its found­ing in 1948, Is­rael has com­mit­ted atroc­i­ties against Jewish, Pales­tinian and other chil­dren that are be­yond com­pre­hen­sion.

Stolen Chil­dren

Since the early days of Is­rael, thou­sands of young Jewish im­mi­grant chil­dren from Yemen and other coun­tries have been stolen from their par­ents by the Is­raeli govern­ment. Once a child was iden­ti­fied as meet­ing the de­sired cri­te­ria, the healthy child was sent to a doc­tor or hos­pi­tal and con­fined to an area off lim­its to par­ents. The par­ents were told to go home and check back with the hos­pi­tal in a cou­ple of days. When the par­ents tried to pick up their child, they were told the child had died and had been buried. Most par­ents be­lieved what they were told.

In re­al­ity, these chil­dren were sim­ply stolen by the govern­ment. Some may have been sold within Is­rael and oth­ers abroad. Al­most none of the chil­dren have ever sur­faced or been ac­counted for, which means they are likely dead.

Many peo­ple es­ti­mate that more than 10,000 chil­dren have been stolen. Rabbi Uzi Meshu­lam gath­ered the names of 4,500 miss­ing chil­dren, but the list was con­fis­cated by the govern­ment and he and many of his stu­dents were sent to pri­son for merely in­ves­ti­gat­ing the miss­ing chil­dren. Ul­ti­mately, Rabbi Meshu­lam was killed by the Is­raeli govern­ment for his in­quiries into the miss­ing chil­dren.

“Small chil­dren, who came with their par­ents to the Holy Land, were sud­denly taken away from their par­ents, who were given strange and un­founded rea­sons for this, such as the need for med­i­cal treat­ment and that their chil­dren were in bad shape. These ex­pla­na­tions con­tin­ued un­til the par­ents were told that their chil­dren had died...” – Rabbi Me­na­hem Men­del Sh­neer­son

Par­ents of the miss­ing chil­dren formed the Mishkan Ohalim or­ga­ni­za­tion and pressed the govern­ment for an­swers. They were able to force the govern­ment to open some of the chil­dren’s graves, but the graves were found to be empty. The govern­ment claims that just be­cause the graves were empty didn’t mean the bod­ies weren’t there and con­tin­ues to in­sist that the chil­dren are dead.

One of the govern­ment’s un­of­fi­cial ex­pla­na­tions is that the chil­dren were given to other Jewish fam­i­lies to raise. At least one of the miss­ing chil­dren has been re­united with her mother. How­ever, there are no adop­tion records to in­di­cate that any of the miss­ing chil­dren were adopted out. Given the sub­stan­tial me­dia at­ten­tion on the is­sue, it is likely that some adopted chil­dren would seek out their birth par­ents and that some of the adop­tive par­ents would ad­mit the cir­cum­stances of the “adop­tion.” An In­ves­ti­ga­tion by Haaretz news­pa­per in 2016 re­vealed that it was not just Ye­menite Jewish chil­dren who were stolen but there were also Ashke­nazi chil­dren taken as well.

The con­tin­ued cover-up clearly demon­strates that some­thing ter­ri­bly damn­ing is be­ing hid­den. Per­haps some of the stolen chil­dren were used in ex­per­i­ments, like oth­ers were. The U.S. Mk-ul­tra pro­gram was very ac­tive at the time, and the CIA had out­sourced the most hor­rid ex­per­i­ments to other coun­tries.

It is now well doc­u­mented that forced hos­pi­tal­iza­tions and mind-con­trol ex­per­i­ments were con­ducted on Cana­dian adults in CIA funded ex­per­i­ments. Some of the vic­tims sued and even­tu­ally won an out-of-court set­tle­ment. The same rou­tine of forced hos­pi­tal­iza­tion was the mech­a­nism for steal­ing the Jewish chil­dren.

Is­rael’s in­tel­li­gence agency Mos­sad is the most feared on the planet. It rou­tinely car­ries out as­sas­si­na­tions, black­mail and bribery to fur­ther the Zion­ist agenda. The best in­tel­li­gence agents are also mind-con­trol vic­tims.

A de­clas­si­fied doc­u­ment un­earthed from the CIA shows that the United States was us­ing young women or girls in a hypno-as­sas­si­na­tion pro­gram. The Mos­sad would cer­tainly have sought to du­pli­cate or ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in the same type of pro­gram, and hav­ing Arab-look­ing as­sas­sins carry out false-flag ter­ror­ism op­er­a­tions would have been a likely goal.

Cre­at­ing an ef­fec­tive mind-con­trol agent re­quires trau­ma­tiz­ing a young child, prefer­ably un­der the age of three, to in­duce the cre­ation of mul­ti­ple per­son­al­i­ties. Each of the per­son­al­i­ties can then be trained to carry out spe­cific tasks. Most of the chil­dren stolen were be­low the age of three – some were even in­fants. This type of Amer­i­can mind-con­trol pro­gram is com­monly called the Monarch pro­gram

X-ray Ex­per­i­men­ta­tion

In the 1950s, Is­rael ex­posed 100,000 North African Jewish chil­dren to 35,000 times the max­i­mum safe dose of X-rays on be­half of the U.S. govern­ment. Thou­sands of chil­dren died soon af­ter the “treat­ment,” and the rest suf­fered hor­ri­ble dis­ease. The ra­di­a­tion was ap­plied di­rectly to the chil­dren’s heads un­der the guise of treat­ing ring­worm, which most of them didn’t have in the first place. If the chil­dren ac­tu­ally did have ring­worm, it could have been eas­ily treated by less deadly means.

Sadis­tic hu­man ex­per­i­men­ta­tion was im­ported to the United States when the coun­try re­cruited and em­ployed the worst of the Nazi sci­en­tists af­ter the Sec­ond World War. The Nazi sci­en­tists wanted to con­tinue their work but of­ten out­sourced the most crim­i­nal re­search or con­ducted it off­shore. Ex­per­i­ment­ing on chil­dren was frowned upon in the United States, al­though the prac­tice was still be­ing done in se­cret. Is­rael was a more-than-will­ing out­sourc­ing part­ner and ea­gerly ac­cepted fund­ing from the United States to con­duct the ex­per­i­ments on Jewish chil­dren who had re­cently em­i­grated from North Africa.

The ir­ra­di­a­tion of the chil­dren is not in ques­tion. The Is­raeli govern­ment ac­knowl­edges what it did and has paid sparse com­pen­sa­tion to some of the sur­vivors who have de­vel­oped brain tu­mors. How­ever, it ex­cuses its ac­tions by claim­ing that they were nor­mal treat­ments at the time, which isn’t true. In the ’50s, it was nor­mal to treat ring­worm with ul­tra­vi­o­let light, not X-rays. X-rays were well known by Is­raeli doc­tors (and doc­tors in most other coun­tries) to be harm­ful.

The atroc­i­ties were ex­posed in a doc­u­men­tary film called 100,000 RADIATIONS, which aired on Is­raeli tele­vi­sion in 2004. Af­ter the film came out, the coverup con­tin­ued with a panel dis­cus­sion with David Edri, head of the Com­pen­sa­tion Com­mit­tee for Ring­worm X-ray Vic­tims, and Boaz Lev, a spokesman for the Min­istry of Health.

Mur­der of Chil­dren

Is­rael has long con­sid­ered Pales­tinian chil­dren as tar­gets, and thou­sands have been wan­tonly killed with­out any jus­ti­fi­ca­tion. The fol­low­ing are just a few of the thou­sands of doc­u­mented cases of hor­rific bru­tal­ity against chil­dren.

• Is­raeli sol­diers poured boil­ing wa­ter over a twoyear-old in­fant, ren­der­ing her cata­tonic.

• On Fe­bru­ary 20, 1988, two youths were ar­rested in Khan Yu­nis, beaten sav­agely and taken to the beach where they were buried alive un­der the sand. Af­ter the sol­diers left, vil­lagers man­aged to dig them out.

• Six-year-old Mo­hammed Aaraj was eat­ing a sand­wich in front of his house when an Is­raeli sol­dier shot him to death at close range.

• Twelve-year-old Radir Mo­hammed from a Khan Yu­nis refugee camp was in a school class­room when sol­diers shot her to death.

• Twelve-year-old Kris­ten Saada was killed in her par­ents’ car, on the way home from a fam­ily visit, when sol­diers sprayed the car with bul­lets. Her brothers Jamil, age 13, and Ahmed Abu Aziz, age 6, were rid­ing their bi­cy­cles in full day­light, on their way to buy sweets, when they sus­tained a di­rect hit from a shell fired by an Is­raeli tank crew.

• Thirteen in­fants died in birth while their mothers were forced to wait for hours at check­points on the way to a hos­pi­tal.

• Ali Mu­rad Abu Shaweesh was 12 when Is­raeli sol­diers shot him in the back in June 2001.

• Eight-year-old Sabreen Abu Sneineh was shot by Is­raeli sol­diers in the head, in He­bron, on Au­gust 12, 2001.

• Dozens of chil­dren have been killed and crip­pled by booby traps placed by Is­raeli troops on paths to schools. The troops also hide bombs in­side toys that ex­plode when they are picked up.

• Khalil Ibrahim al-mu­grabi, 11, was shot in the head and killed, along with other chil­dren, on July 7, 2001, when Is­raeli troops ma­chine-gunned a play­ground full of chil­dren.

• In Au­gust 2007, an 11-year-old boy play­ing in a fig tree was shot re­peat­edly by Is­raeli troops for no rea­son other than be­ing Pales­tinian. His fam­ily was kept from com­ing to his aid un­til the Is­raeli sol­diers were cer­tain the boy was dead.

“Chil­dren have been shot in other con­flicts I have cov­ered – death squads gunned them down in El Sal­vador and Gu­atemala, mothers with in­fants were lined up and mas­sa­cred in Al­ge­ria, and Serb snipers put chil­dren in their sights ... – but I have never be­fore watched sol­diers en­tice chil­dren like mice into a trap and mur­der them for sport.” – Chris Hedges, award-win­ning jour­nal­ist writ­ing about Is­raeli mur­ders of chil­dren

Ac­cord­ing to De­fence for Chil­dren In­ter­na­tional, be­tween 2000 and 2010, more than 1,135 chil­dren had been de­lib­er­ately killed by Is­raelis. In May 2018 alone, Is­rael killed dozens of Pales­tinian chil­dren and in­jured and im­pris­oned dozens more.

Is­rael’s Im­pris­on­ment and Tor­ture of Chil­dren

Is­rael is the only coun­try in the world that sys­tem­at­i­cally pros­e­cutes be­tween 500 and 700 chil­dren each year in mil­i­tary courts lack­ing fun­da­men­tal fair-trial rights.

At any given time there are an es­ti­mated 400 to 500 non-jewish chil­dren im­pris­oned in Is­rael. Most of these chil­dren are phys­i­cally as­saulted and psy­cho­log­i­cally abused and trau­ma­tized in ways that meet the cri­te­ria for tor­ture.

Is­rael does not rec­og­nize Pales­tinian chil­dren as chil­dren, so they are sub­jected to the same meth­ods of in­ter­ro­ga­tion, tor­ture, charges and sen­tences as Pales­tinian adults. There is no ju­ve­nile fa­cil­ity where chil­dren can be kept safe from crim­i­nal adults. Pales­tinian chil­dren are tried only in mil­i­tary courts.

Vir­tu­ally ev­ery non-jewish child ar­rested by Is­raeli forces is sub­jected to some form of abuse. Doc­u­mented cases in­clude se­vere beat­ings to the head and gen­i­tals, sleep de­pri­va­tion, ex­po­sure to ex­treme tem­per­a­tures (in­clud­ing boil­ing and ice-cold wa­ter), threats of rape (with doc­u­mented cases of the car­ry­ing out of these threats), vi­o­lent shak­ing (which has led to deaths) and po­si­tion abuse.

Po­si­tion abuse in­volves bind­ing the child in an un­com­fort­able po­si­tion for long pe­ri­ods of time. It re­sults in ex­cru­ci­at­ing pain and some­times the loss of limbs af­ter blood flow has been cut off for ex­tended pe­ri­ods.

The tor­ture of Pales­tinian chil­dren is not just car­ried out by the mil­i­tary. Is­raeli set­tlers are no­to­ri­ous for abus­ing chil­dren as well. Be­cause Is­rael ex­empts Jewish chil­dren from all laws, Jewish chil­dren reg­u­larly at­tack Pales­tinian chil­dren with im­punity, and any­one who tries to de­fend the chil­dren is tar­geted for se­vere reprisals.

Hu­man Traf­fick­ing, Child Pros­ti­tu­tion and Pornog­ra­phy

Is­rael is one of the leading coun­tries en­gaged in hu­man traf­fick­ing, with up to 10,000 women kept in Is­rael and more than 280 broth­els in Tel Aviv alone. Many of the women forced into the Is­raeli sex trade are younger than 18, and some have been found to be as young as 12.

For many years, the U.S. State De­part­ment’s an­nual Traf­fick­ing in Per­sons Re­port put Is­rael on its Tier 2 Watch List, along with coun­tries like Cam­bo­dia, Kenya, Oman and oth­ers that openly sup­port or al­low hu­man traf­fick­ing. Un­der the pro-is­rael Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion, Is­rael is now on the Tier 1 Watch List, and it is claimed that “Is­rael fully meets the min­i­mum stan­dards for the elim­i­na­tion of traf­fick­ing,” even though in 2016 the govern­ment ini­ti­ated only three pros­e­cu­tions for sus­pected sex traf­fick­ers and none for forced la­bor.

“Rather than tak­ing ac­tion against hu­man rights abuses ex­pe­ri­enced by the women, Is­raeli

gov­ern­men­tal agen­cies in ef­fect treat them as crim­i­nals...” – Amnesty In­ter­na­tional

The Jewish Mafia that con­trols the sex trade in Is­rael also op­er­ates in many other coun­tries and sup­plies pros­ti­tutes to the Mos­sad for black­mail op­er­a­tions.

Jews with strong ties to Is­rael dom­i­nate the global pornog­ra­phy in­dus­try in pro­duc­tion, dis­tri­bu­tion and re­tail, in­clud­ing child pornog­ra­phy and the snuff-film in­dus­try.

In the year 2000, Ital­ian au­thor­i­ties un­cov­ered a Rus­sian and Ital­ian Jewish Mafia ring that pro­duced pho­tos and videos of more than 100 chil­dren be­ing tor­tured to death. Rus­sian au­thor­i­ties ar­rested and then quickly re­leased all but one of the gang lead­ers. One of those ar­rested in the United States for pur­chas­ing and dis­tribut­ing the videos was Seth Beken­stein, brother of bil­lion­aire Joshua Beken­stein, who posted Seth’s $500,000 bail. Seth pleaded guilty and was given only 18 months in a fed­eral de­ten­tion fa­cil­ity, even though he was dis­tribut­ing pornog­ra­phy that showed the tor­ture and mur­der of chil­dren. By com­par­i­son, nonJewish Ge­orge Thrasher was sen­tenced in Florida to 360 years in pri­son for pos­ses­sion of 60 non-vi­o­lent images and, in Ari­zona, Mor­ton Berger was given 200 years for 20 non-vi­o­lent images.

In the year 2000 in Brazil, Is­raeli Vice-con­sul Arie Scher and his ac­com­plice Ge­orge Schtein­berg were charged with run­ning a child pornog­ra­phy and pros­ti­tu­tion busi­ness. Among the mas­sive vol­ume of child pornog­ra­phy found there were pho­tos of chil­dren in Con­sul cars with diplo­matic plates. Other pho­tos were taken in the lux­u­ri­ous Con­sul apart­ment.

Nine com­plete porno­graphic web­sites were found on the hard drive of Schtein­berg’s com­puter, all in He­brew. He ad­mit­ted that he was run­ning an In­ter­net ser­vice that brought Is­raeli tourists to Brazil to have sex with the chil­dren.

Scher fled to Is­rael un­der diplo­matic im­mu­nity. Is­rael and Brazil did not have an ex­tra­di­tion treaty, but the Brazil­ian govern­ment asked the Is­raeli govern­ment to re­turn Scher. Is­rael has re­fused to turn him over to jus­tice and in 2005 sent him to Aus­tralia as Con­sul in Can­berra to re­place Amir Lati, who had been ex­pelled by the Aus­tralian govern­ment for be­ing in­volved in a sex spy ring.

A spokesman for the Is­raeli For­eign Min­istry in Jerusalem re­marked in 2005 re­gard­ing Scher, “He was a young and a sin­gle man at the time. Now he is mar­ried and he’s six years older and there is no rea­son why he shouldn’t make an ex­cel­lent diplo­matic ap­point­ment in Aus­tralia.” Ap­par­ently, run­ning a child pornog­ra­phy and pros­ti­tu­tion busi­ness out of a con­sulate is not con­sid­ered to be a bad thing in Is­rael.

In 2002, Thai po­lice dis­cov­ered a pro­duc­tion stu­dio op­er­ated by Aus­tralian Jews who had been in­volved in the mak­ing of child rape porn and rit­ual mur­der movies. Four Thai and 10 Aus­tralian Jews were ar­rested af­ter Thai po­lice dis­cov­ered they had been kid­nap­ping Thai chil­dren be­tween the ages of three and nine years old from the coun­try­side in Thai­land, tor­tur­ing and rap­ing them and then mur­der­ing them in rit­u­al­is­tic sac­ri­fi­cial scenes in­volv­ing the Star of David.

In Fe­bru­ary 2007, an­other vi­o­lent child pros­ti­tu­tion and pornog­ra­phy ring was dis­cov­ered, run by Rus­sian and Ital­ian Jews, and more than 2,000 sus­pects were iden­ti­fied, but this time Rus­sian au­thor­i­ties ad­mit­ted a pos­si­ble link to the Mos­sad.

There are count­less other cases of Jewish in­volve­ment in child pros­ti­tu­tion and pornog­ra­phy, but the Jewish­dom­i­nated me­dia rarely re­port them.

The prob­lem ex­tends to chil­dren within Is­rael as well. ELEM/YOUTH in Dis­tress, a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, claims that more than 1,000 mi­nors in Is­rael are in­volved in pros­ti­tu­tion, of­ten forced into it by their par­ents.

A Long His­tory of Child Abuse

Jewish be­hav­ior is guided by the Tal­mud and To­rah and, to a lesser ex­tent, the Kab­balah. The Tal­mud is the ba­sis for all codes of rab­binic law.

The Tal­mud claims that it is per­mis­si­ble for Jews to have in­ter­course with girls aged three years and one day. A Jewish priest is al­lowed to have sex with girls younger than three years old. Sex with young boys is not con­sid­ered to be sex at all. This helps to ex­plain the wide­spread sex­ual abuse found within some Ortho­dox Jewish com­mu­ni­ties and in the Jewish­dom­i­nated film in­dus­try.

The fol­low­ing English trans­la­tions of Tal­mud texts are very clear: Ye­bamoth 60B, part 1 – “It was taught: R. [Rabbi] Simeon b. [ben] Yo­hai stated: A pros­e­lyte who is un­der the age of three years and one day is per­mit­ted to marry a priest, for it is said, ‘But all the women chil­dren that have not known many by ly­ing with him, keep alive for your­selves, and Phine­has surely was with them.’”

Ye­bamoth 60B, part 2 – “There was a cer­tain town in the Land of Is­rael the le­git­i­macy of whose in­hab­i­tants was dis­puted, and Rabbi sent R. Ro­manos who con­ducted an en­quiry and found in it the daugh­ter of a pros­e­lyte who was un­der the age of three years and one day, and Rabbi de­clared her el­i­gi­ble to live with a priest.”

San­hedrin 54B-55A – “At nine years, a male at­tains sex­ual ma­ture­ness… Thus the point of com­par­i­son is the sex­ual ma­ture­ness of woman, which is reached at the age of three.”

Ye­bamoth 98A – “All Gen­tile chil­dren are an­i­mals.”

The Tal­mud is very clear on its pol­icy to­ward nonJews: They are the en­emy and not wor­thy of even ba­sic com­pas­sion. They are con­sid­ered to be wrong in all dis­putes with Jews, and abuse and mur­der of non-jews is en­cour­aged.

When con­fronted with the con­tents of the Tal­mud, Jews are quick to claim that the texts have been mis­trans­lated or taken out of con­text.

The Anti-defama­tion League claims the fol­low­ing:

By se­lec­tively cit­ing var­i­ous pas­sages from the Tal­mud and Midrash, polemi­cists have sought to demon­strate that Ju­daism es­pouses ha­tred for non-jews (and specif­i­cally for Chris­tians) and pro­motes ob­scen­ity, sex­ual per­ver­sion and other im­moral be­hav­ior. To make these pas­sages serve their pur­poses, these polemi­cists fre­quently mis­trans­late them or cite them out of con­text.

Yet the Anti-defama­tion League is un­will­ing to pro­vide al­ter­nate trans­la­tions or ex­plain the cor­rect con­text in which to in­ter­pret the pas­sages, leav­ing non-jews to take the words as they are writ­ten.

Ap­par­ently Jewish rab­bis do take the Tal­mud at its word. They fre­quently spout ha­tred to­ward Gen­tiles and are reg­u­larly found to sex­u­ally abuse chil­dren. The fol­low­ing are just a few of the over­whelm­ing num­ber of cases of rab­bis ac­cused of such sex­ual abuse:

• In Fe­bru­ary of this year, Rabbi Aryeh Good­man was ar­rested in New Jersey with two oth­ers on charges of hu­man traf­fick­ing and child pros­ti­tu­tion.

• In Novem­ber 2016, the es­teemed Rabbi Eliezer Ber­land en­tered into a plea bar­gain by con­fess­ing to two counts of in­de­cent acts and one as­sault to avoid prose­cu­tion for the nu­mer­ous sex­ual as­saults and rapes he was ac­cused of. The pop­u­lar 81-year-old Ha­sidic leader was re­leased to house ar­rest on Fe­bru­ary 12, 2017.

• Rabbi Ya­cov Sim­monds, direc­tor of de­vel­op­ment of the Chabad-lubav­itch cen­ter in Win­nipeg, Canada, is cur­rently at large af­ter be­ing charged with sex­ual as­sault, sex­ual in­ter­fer­ence and in­vi­ta­tion to sex­ual touch­ing.

• In Bev­erly Hills, Cal­i­for­nia, Chabad Rabbi Me­nachem Tewel was ar­rested in 2013 for the sex­ual and phys­i­cal abuse of four young boys.

• In Santa Mon­ica, Cal­i­for­nia, Rabbi Sholom Dovber Le­vi­tan­sky was ar­rested in 2015 on felony charges for sex­ual abuse of a child.

• In Mary­land, a hot­bed for Jewish sex­ual abuse, Rabbi Steven Krawatsky has been ac­cused re­cently by sev­eral young boys of sex­ual abuse but has not been charged. In 2009, Rabbi Ja­cob Aaron Max was con­victed of mo­lest­ing a woman. In 2008, for­mer Bar Mitz­vah les­son teacher Is­rael Shapiro was found guilty of child sex­ual abuse and a third-de­gree sex of­fense.

• In 2007, the late Rabbi Ephraim Shapiro, for­mer prin­ci­pal of the Tal­mu­di­cal Academy, was ac­cused of abuse by for­mer stu­dents in an ex­posé pub­lished by the Bal­ti­more Jewish Times.

So great is the prob­lem of sex­ual abuse of chil­dren by rab­bis that the sum­mer 2017 is­sue of Tra­di­tion, the of­fi­cial pub­li­ca­tion of the Rab­bini­cal Coun­cil of Amer­ica, was ded­i­cated to the topic. Un­for­tu­nately, the pub­li­ca­tion failed to ad­dress the root cause and the guest ed­i­tor, Rabbi Yitzchak Blau, lost an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity to ex­pose the flaws in Jewish cul­ture when he wrote the fol­low­ing:

“Of course, we are not alone in this predica­ment. Par­al­lel sto­ries ex­ist in the Catholic church, more­lib­eral Jewish cir­cles, fancy pri­vate schools, youth

sports leagues, and more... Ap­par­ently, these prob­lems re­flect chal­lenges in­her­ent in the hu­man con­di­tion.”

Blau is sim­ply wrong. The sex­ual abuse of chil­dren is cer­tainly not in­her­ent in the hu­man con­di­tion. It is caused by abuse. Chil­dren who are abused are likely to grow up to abuse other chil­dren, and the sex­ual abuse of chil­dren in Jewish cul­ture is so wide­spread so leads to ever more abuse. It is wide­spread be­cause it is en­abled by fun­da­men­tal Jewish texts and is widely ac­cepted. Ac­cord­ing to the Tal­mud, rab­bis are en­ti­tled to sex­u­ally abuse chil­dren so what they are do­ing it not con­sid­ered wrong from a re­li­gious per­spec­tive.

It is this per­mis­sive at­ti­tude that com­pelled Dr. Erica Brown, a pro­fes­sor at the Grad­u­ate School of Ed­u­ca­tion and Hu­man De­vel­op­ment at Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity and the direc­tor of its May­berg Cen­ter for Jewish Ed­u­ca­tion and Lead­er­ship, to write in her ar­ti­cle Stand­ing Idly By: When Lead­ers En­able Sex­ual Abuse, “Most of us can name a rabbi who just got out of jail or is in jail for sex­ual abuse with­out think­ing too hard.”

And it is this wide­spread cul­tural ac­cep­tance of sex­ual abuse that en­ables rab­bis who are charged, con­victed or im­pris­oned for sex­ual abuse to con­tinue to lead as though noth­ing has hap­pened. No mat­ter how much ev­i­dence there is or how young their vic­tims are, their Jewish sup­port­ers usu­ally deny the al­le­ga­tions or sim­ply ac­cept the be­hav­ior and rally with their un­con­di­tional sup­port.

Rabbi Mordechai (Moti) Elon was con­victed in Is­rael on two counts of in­de­cent as­sault by force (rape) against a young boy but never served any jail time for the crime. He is still revered by his followers and re­cently opened a new yeshiva.

It is hard to square the fact that so many Jewish re­li­gious lead­ers are child rapists when rab­bis claim how su­pe­rior Jews are to Gen­tiles and claim that nonJews orig­i­nate from Satan and only Jews are God’s cho­sen peo­ple.

While sex­ual abuse of chil­dren (and adults) is a mas­sive prob­lem in Jewish cul­ture, it must be noted that sex­ual abuse of chil­dren is not unique to Jews. The Catholic church also has a very long his­tory of in­sti­tu­tion­al­ized sex­ual, emo­tional and phys­i­cal abuse of chil­dren by priests and nuns and the sex­ual abuse of young boys re­mains a per­va­sive prob­lem in many Is­lamic com­mu­ni­ties.

Stop­ping the Abuse

The prob­lem of Jewish atroc­i­ties against chil­dren runs deep within Jewish cul­ture. Be­fore Jewish and Is­raeli crimes against chil­dren can be stopped, they must be ex­posed and openly dis­cussed, which is some­thing made much more dif­fi­cult when Is­rael cor­rupts leg­is­la­tors in other coun­tries and gets them to pass laws sup­press­ing free speech in re­gard to Is­rael and Ju­daism.

Some Jews are try­ing to tackle the prob­lem. Jewish Com­mu­nity Watch op­er­ates a wall of shame at http://www.jew­ish­com­mu­ni­ty­watch.org/ newsar­ti­cles/?cat­e­gory=wall-of-shame

Rabbi Nuchem Rosen­berg has has long tried to ex­pose the sex­ual abuse of chil­dren in ortho­dox Jewish com­mu­ni­ties and been phys­i­cally at­tacked and os­tra­cized for his ef­forts by Jews who feel that it is their right to abuse chil­dren.

How­ever, the few Jews who try to ex­pose and stop the abuse of chil­dren are too few do­ing too lit­tle and it is un­likely to make much dif­fer­ence when the Tal­mud and rab­binic law con­tin­ues to en­cour­age it. Chang­ing the fun­da­men­tals of the Jewish re­li­gion is not likely to ever hap­pen.

A good place to start for non-jews is to stop elect­ing politi­cians loyal to Is­rael and re­move from power those who do the bid­ding of the Is­raeli and Jewish lobby.

Not sup­port­ing Is­rael fi­nan­cially is also im­por­tant. The boy­cott, di­vest and sanc­tions (BDS) move­ment does have some im­pact on dis­em­pow­er­ing Is­rael.
