The Tanya

The Z Factor IX: Chabad Lubavitch (2)

“Ideological concept of Lubavitch clan (the concept of Judeo-Nazism) is presented in the book “Tanya”, written by founder of Chabad-Lubavitch – Rabbi Schneur Zalman Schneerson.  According to Chabad canon, developed by Shneur Zalman, God created the world solely for the Jews ; Jews possess Divine soul, the goyim (gentiles) have the soul of a lowest order – animal soul; Jews are the only ones to whom we can apply the concept of Man. The other nations of the world are compared to vomiting and filth. [The] Book called Tanya is the main subject of study in Chabad schools on a par with the Torah and Talmud.”

Rabbi Eduard Hodos from ‘Jewish Hurricane’


As far as Eduard Hodos is concerned Zionists and Chabadniks are the two major causes for the current chaos which has engulfed the globe. And it’s all to do with supremacy. It is interesting that Zionism and Chabad Lubavitch appear at odds with each other since they are both fascistic philosophies predicated on a Jewish supremacy. But these are really theological semantics which belies the fact that they work together if need be to achieve the ultimate end of greater political control. But for that very reason, you will hear from moderate rabbis and ordinary Jews that neither of these extremist groupings are “Jewish” as they understand it, for they have no real compassion or love for their fellow man. The problem is, ordinary Jews are not aware of just how much influence they hold and how these power brokers hide behind philanthropy and compassionate platitudes.

George Bush Sr. signed the Noachide Laws Legislation in March 26th 1991. It become known as Presidential Proclamation 5956, recalling Joint House Resolution 173 reinforcing the principle that the ethical and moral principles of all civilizations come in part from the Seven Noachide Laws. This signing day of March 26 is now seen as “Education Day, U.S.A” which also happens to coincide with Public Law 102 as the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s birthday. “… Without these ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos”, … “society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of these principles that has resulted in crises that beleaguer and threaten the fabric of civilized society” [1]

The Lurianic Kabbalah named after 16th Century Jewish mystic Isaac Luria forms a large part of Chabad and Hasidic West Bank settler movement, and derived from the Babylonian Talmudic school of Jewish mysticism that saw a resurgence from the late 16th to the early 19th century. Middle Eastern Scholar Israel Shahak described its remit:

“One of the basic tenets of the Lurianic Cabbala is the absolute superiority of the Jewish soul and body over the non-Jewish soul and body. According to the Lurianic Cabbala, the world was created solely for the sake of Jews; the existence of non-Jews was subsidiary. If an influential Christian bishop or Islamic scholar argued that the difference between the superior souls of non-Jews and the inferior souls of Jews was greater than the difference between the human soul and souls of cattle, he would incur the wrath of all and be viewed as an anti-Semite by most Jewish scholars regardless of whatever less meaningful, positive statements he included.” [2]

This is something you don’t hear so often though it remains a central pillar of wisdom in both Hasidic and Chabad beliefs. The latter grouping attaches particular significance to the fact that non-Jews have “satanic souls” and therefore serve a role in the final conflagration if conversion is not an option. It runs parallel to the Catholic and Evangelist version of the damned where non-Jews are Satan embodied a theme that is common to both the Talmud and Halacha. Separatism is part and parcel of Judaism and thus lends itself to extremism. But this is seldom aired in polite Hebrew discussion on talk shows and synagogue community meetings.

Countless quotations of the true nature of Chabad Lubavitch seem to follow in the wake of rabbis when they give interviews to Jewish journals and periodicals. One such example comes from a leading Lubavitch Rabbi Yitshak Ginsburgh in 1996 and for whom the distinctions between Gentiles and Jews led to some very revealing proclamations:

“Gentile souls are of a completely different and inferior order. They are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.” …If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA. […] If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value,” he explained. “There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life. [3]

Charges of endemic racism in the teachings of Judaism and the purloining of these as central tenets of indoctrination by Chabad Lubavitch seem to get very little media airplay due to the constant fear of being branded anti-Semitic. Yet the charges have validity and remain problematic for Jewish academics. When such teachings are used in the hands of fanatics with considerable financial and political power then the Jewish community needs to sit up and take careful notice, for all our sakes.

Officially sanctioned for English translation by the Kehot Publication Society in New York, the Chabad Lubavitch’s publishing house, the primary texts of ‘Likkutei-Amarim Tanya’ or ‘The Tanya’ are prime examples.[4] Here’s a small nugget of the kind of racism which is littered throughout:

“The souls of the nations of the world, however, emanate from the other, unclean ‘kelipot’ (evil forces) which contain no good whatever,” […] “However, the ‘kelipot’ are subdivided into two grades, one lower than the other. The lower grade consists of the three ‘kelipot’ which are altogether unclean and evil, containing no good whatever. … From them flow and derive the souls of all the nations of the world and the existence of their bodies, and also the souls of all living creatures that are unclean and unfit for consumption” [5]

This belief seems to place “evil forces” and sentient life that is “unclean and unfit for consumption” into an arbitrary mixing bowl that contains other religious denominations and non-Jews.

It continues:

“To elucidate still further, it is necessary to clarify the meaning of the verse, ‘The candle of God is the soul of (neshamah) of man.’ What it means is that the souls of Jews, who are called ‘man,’ are, by way of illustration, like the flame of the candle, whose nature it is always to scintillate upwards… Now this is a general principle in the whole realm of holiness… This stands in direct contrast to the so-called ‘kelipah’ (evil forces) and ‘sitra achara’ (the other, evil side), wherefrom are derived the souls of the Gentiles… Therefore they (the Gentiles) are called ‘dead’…” [6]

For Chabad Lubavitch, this means that only Jews are considered human. They teach that non-Jews are sub-human creatures who are thus called ‘dead’. Followers tend to draw out the plentiful examples of racism, Jewish pre-eminence and monotheistic extremism that would make many Jews wide-eyed with horror. Yet the fact that such ethnocentrism is present at all within much of standard Judaism and Revisionist Zionism should give cause for alarm not just for the cult of Chabad Lubavitch but the fertile nature of Judaic thought which has allowed such extremism to be fostered from its own monotheistic beliefs.

A Judeo-fascist theocracy to be established in the aftermath of an apocalypse and the return of a Jewish Messiahis very much the ideological goal of Lubavitchers. As Jewish Messianists see it: “In simple terms, we are at war. It is not a struggle merely for power, wealth, or some other material advantage; it is a titanic clash over the future of world civilization … This war has already spread into every nation, ever social institution, every human activity. It has thus become a world war in the ultimate sense.” [7] And it is this war that must see the simultaneous crumbling of Christianity while setting up the Clash of Islam as the fire that ignites the world – and their “Moshiach”.

Baruch_Goldstein

American-Israeli Baruch Goldstein shot 29 Muslims to death as they prayed during Ramadan at the al-Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron in 1994. He was also an avowed Lubavitcher. Chabad Rabbis play a key role in Israel’s right-wing settler movement where atrocities such as Goldstein’s are merely part of campaign of terror against Palestinians encouraged by some Chabad leaders.  Indeed, Goldstein’s actions have passed into heroic mythology and is venerated as a saint by many orthodox and Hassidic Jews. Rabbi Dov Lior of Kiryat Arba described Goldstein as “holier than all the martyrs of the Holocaust, whilst Samuel Hacohen, a teacher at a Jerusalem college, said that he was “the only one who could do it, the only one who was 100 percent perfect.” [8] [9] Chabad followers in particular celebrated Goldstein’s actions by singing and dancing around his grave for months afterwards. [10]

In Israel Rabbi Sholom Dov Wolpo of Kiryat Gat and Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg of Kfar Chabad exert considerable influence. Wolpo is head of SOS-Israel an organisation against government opposition to illegal settlements. Ginsburg is leader of the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement, outside Nablus and came to notoriety by writing a book in praise of Baruch Goldstein. Chabad’s American leadership has publicly distanced itself from Wolpo and Ginsburg, yet both continue to enjoy wide acceptance in Israel.

Despite Israeli teachers devoting classes to explaining why such an atrocity had no place in a civilised society, in some schools there was still resistance to the idea that he was not in fact a martyr to the cause of Jewish supremacy. Journalist Larry Derfner describes it in the following way: “The level of support for a murderous lunatic and the identification with [Goldstein] among some sectors of the public have been greater than I’d estimated at first. I see in this the danger of an Israeli racism, or to be more precise, a Jewish racism.” [11]

Indeed, even the 1995 assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin by a military-trained orthodox student, Yigal Amir took his cues from the standard teachings of the Babylonian Talmud where violence and extremism is enshrined as a normative tradition. This will confirm that it is not just Chabad Lubavitch that is the problem but the core of Jewish orthodoxy that has allowed such violence to manifest.

Rabbi Meir Lockshin believes that some serious soul searching is in order:

One just can’t ignore the fact that Amir and the other famous Orthodox murderer of the nineties, Baruch Goldstein, attended the finest modern Orthodox schools and excelled in their studies. They were not sociopaths. They were well-integrated and respected members of their communities; it was impossible to tell them apart from their colleagues and friends. As Rabbi Lichenstein said on the day before the assassination, the nationalist Orthodox community in Israel would have gladly shown off Yigal Amir as one of the great successes of its educational system. It is absurd then for the Orthodox community to say that he and Goldstein are not representative. [12]

Whether or not they were sociopaths is up for debate, but such an educational system can certainly assist in the fostering of latent pathologies. Returning to Chabad Lubavitch and spiritual leader Menachem Mendel Schneerson, we gain something of the nature of their beliefs behind the much lauded benevolence and why some in mainstream Judaism are waking up to the fact that this a dangerous cult.

If we have a look at the official website of JAHG-USA “Jews and Hasidic Gentiles United to Save America” at noahide.org, we find the following 1998 article entitled: “The Final War for Jerusalem – Why Permanent Israeli Victory Is Now Within Reach” by the Committee for Israeli Victory. After indulging in a rousing call to arms so that a Lubavitch Elite may reign by divine right, they make it clear how these ends may be achieved: “… as the Lubavitcher Rebbe has explained, by transforming the gentiles we can quickly create a vast army of supporters who will help us reveal Moshiach and bring all Jews back to the Torah … “Specifically, the Rebbe has emphasized that the ‘peace process’ in Israel will be defeated only through our influence on the gentiles – especially through the campaign to teach the Noahide Laws.” [13]

Like many of the Christian fundies, the peace process is not something Lubavitchers are keen to support as it is counter to the required chaos they seek. The Babylonian Talmud says that Gentiles will be permitted to enter Judaism as “proselytes” (converts) in the present or in the future messianic realm of milk and honey as long as these seven Noachide laws or commandments are followed to the letter.

So, what are these laws exactly?

They are listed in the Talmud as: Prohibition of Idolatry, Prohibition of Murder, Prohibition of Theft, Prohibition of Sexual Promiscuity, Prohibition of Blasphemy and Prohibition of Cruelty to Animals. The seventh law is a judiciary to police the other laws. From a Chabad Lubavitch perspective many rabbis believe Gentiles should be forced to comply and given the right circumstances, conversion will happen either way. For such a Jewish Utopia to exist compliance is necessary. In other words, more authoritarianism. And no one else has done more to spread worldwide Noahide observance than the authoritarian personality of the late Rabbi Menachem Schneerson.

Jewish people enthusiastically anticipate the Second Coming of a Messiah they believe will bestow a Hebraic monotheism that will dominate the nations. For Chabad Lubavitch adherents, the peace process isn’t part of the equation as perpetual conflict in the Middle East is favourable for this “Final War.” Indeed, conflict is encouraged so that all true Jews are “liberated,” and and where they claim that such a: “’peace process’ in Israel will be defeated only through our influence on the gentiles.” Similarly, in a Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, March 2000 Allan Brownfeld stated: “Rabbi Schneerson always supported Israeli wars and opposed any retreat. In 1974 he strongly opposed the Israeli withdrawal from the Suez area. He promised Israel divine favors if it persisted in occupying the land. After his death, thousands of his Israeli followers played an important role in the election victory of Binyamin Netanyahu. [14]

Judaism, according to Rabbi Schneerson, has to take care of the ones rejected by God, so that they may fulfil their prophesied task and render support, respect and earthly riches to the chosen ones. Chabad then selectively draws upon the non-biblical Noachidic laws in order to make sure that the Gentiles (everyone else) is bound and beholden to blood and brimstone Yahweh to the Israelite god of the Old Testament. Noachidism becomes the required religion for ordinary Gentiles while those of Jewish origins perform their destined role as a superior priesthood which gathers in the flock along pre-destined lines. Too bad if they are all cast into the hell as sacrificial lambs. Rabbi Schneerson taught: “It is obvious and self-evident that in modern times we must carry out the Divine Command we received through Moshe: ´To compel all human beings to accept the commandments enjoined upon the descendants of Noach.” [15]

If we place this in context with Rabbi Schneerson’s assertions, persistent cases of crime and abuse from Chabad Houses and high level activities surrounding Dov Zakheim, Paul Wolfowitz and others who manipulated public and political players into the Iraq war and funnelled US dollars and weapons to Israel – Chabad Lubavitch takes on a different hue. If these politicians condone their beliefs whilst sharing their public events and acting on their behalf, this may go some way in explaining why there is still so little peace in the Middle East. Remember too that although ostensibly anti-Zionist, both ideologies are aggressively political and both networks are merged in order to serve both messianic and geopolitical designs. To that end, leading Lubavitch and “unofficial rabbi of the Capitol” Levi Shemtov stated:  “… that the vast network of shlichim (emissaries) inside the US generates his political power… “We have shelichimin forty-seven states and in [at least] 310 districts. … People sometimes view the world of shelichim as three thousand people, but it’s not only three thousand people, its three thousand interconnected networks. So we can place a call from a constituent to almost any member of Congress.” [16]

According to the Jerusalem Post Thomas Kahn, Staff Director of the Democratic Budget Committee in the Congress, “There’s nobody who is more widely respected and warmly received in Congress, the administration, and the diplomatic corps.” The Post further describes his office in the Chabad “embassy” in Washington and photos of Sehmtov cheesing it with politicians: “… including former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a close personal friend. On the walls … a bipartisan array of other VIPs including President Bill Clinton, Vice President Al Gore and former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.” [17]

Yet, ordinary Jewish people insist this sect has no undue influence in contemporary politics or Noachide laws and even less to do with mainstream Judaism.

Clearly, this is not the case.

The Z Factor VIII: Chabad Lubavitch (1)

By M.K. Styllinski

“A Jew was not created as a means for some other purpose; he himself IS the purpose, since the substance of all divine emanations was created ONLY to serve the Jews.”

 – Chabad Lubavitch leader, “The Great Rebbe” Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson; Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky. (1999). Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel. Pluto Press, p.B8-62)


From the Russian-Jewish Mafiya to the messianic sect of Chabad Lubavitch. Virtually ignored in the MSM, it has been busy undermining mainstream Judaism while exerting a powerful hold on key positions of international power.

Chabad is a branch of Hasidic Judasim espousing a supremacist and authoritarian ideology ostensibly supported by Christian Zionists and Christian Evangelists alike. It has been able to gain access to presidential offices in America and Israel, along with a very close relationship to the Russian President Vladmir Putin. But Chabad Lubavitch’s greatest influence is undoubtedly in the United States. According to author Sue Fishkoff: “It’s not enough that Chabad’s man in D.C. knows the name and phone number of just about every congressman, senator and foreign ambassador in the nation’s capital — he also knows their legislative assistants, their secretaries and the people who clean their offices.” [1]

rabbis-movement-judaism-chabad-lubavitch.si_thumb.jpg

Chabad Lubavitch: a Jewish cult aligning itself to Hassidism and influential in American politics, Zio-Conservativism in particular. It is the largest Jewish religious organisation in the world.

The sect originated in the 18th Century between three Slavic States – Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Chabad, is an acronym for three words in Hebrew: “Chochma, Binah and Daas,” meaning “wisdom, understanding and knowledge.” Chabad describes the movement and Lubavitch is the name of the town in Ukraine where the movement was based during the nineteenth century and now part of the Smolensk region of Russia. Lubavitchers are a branch of the Hasidic Jews who draw their beliefs from the mystical side of Judaism: the Talmud, the Zohar (both seen as the foundation to Kabbalah) and finally the Tanya (or “Hatanya”) written by the founder of the Chabad Lubavitch, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, apparently in response to criticism of the new Hasidic movement for its “obscurantism and superstition.” [2] Though Chabad Lubavitch can definitely be called a sect or a cult from the way it conducts its political and doctrinal affairs, much of its teachings are drawn from mainstream Judaism.

Since the 1940s, the headquarters of the Chabad-Lubavitch have been located in Brooklyn, New York. From the 1950s -1990s the sect was led by the Seventh, or last Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Until his death in 1994, this latter “Great Rebbe,’  managed to create a Chabad presence in more than 900 cities world wide. The title of Lubavitcher “Rebbe” is handed down to successive leaders, organised on clan principles and the only movement to do so within Judaism. There is no religion where religious fanaticism is more applicable, but it is not Hassidism per se. Orthodox Judaism is made up of many different hues of Hasidic tribes all of which take exception to Chabad Lubavitch followers or conversely, are to some degree, aligned to its principles. This is where many who think critical attention to Chabadniks is also being directed to Hassidism in general which is not necessarily so. But Chabadniks are quite content to identify themselves with Hassidism and Judaism, much to the chagrin of those involved. [3]

The Jerusalem Post in October 19, 2001, gave a summary of Chabad Lubavitch as:

“a potent force: 2,600 institutions around the world, large numbers of English-speaking rabbis, control of most of Judaism in Italy as well as the chief rabbinate of Russia (its Russia budget alone is $20 million a year). It is an organization with immense world-wide financial resources . . . In fact, Chabad is a movement of monumental importance. Observant Jews are profoundly dependent on its emissaries all over the world … its rabbis dominate or are poised to dominate Jewish communities in a startling number of countries.” [4]

Menachem_Mendel_Schneerson

There are still many Rabbis who believe that Schneerson is not dead and will be resurrected for a coronation as the long awaited Messiah. He is seen as a demi-God, perfect in every way and to say otherwise is not recommended. There are others within Chabad who do not share the same view, and according to one recent report, this has frequently led to “violent brawls breaking out and spilling on the streets on a regular basis leading to scores of hospitalizations and arrests.” One Jewish journalist observed in response to the deification and idolatory of Schneerson: “Chabad members have become irrecovably fixated on their dead leader. If the seemingly inexorable rise of the vocal yellow pin brigade progresses apace, the movement founded to bring rigor and intellectualism to Hasidic Judaism may well face a benighted future.” [5]

However, it seems a little more serious, as its objectives may encompass more than just the Jewish people.

Very similar to the Dominionists, the aim of the Chabadniks (or Lubavitchers) is to fulfil their destiny as they see it, by helping to mold and manipulate world events in line with Biblical “End Time” prophecies which involves the second coming of the Messiah, a prerequisite of which is a final conflagration from which those suitably pure and distinctly Jewish will be saved, while the rest of us perish. Rising out of the chaos will be a New World Jewish Order fixed in place with ultra-orthodox Jewish laws. Crazy it may sound but very much grounded in fact.

By 2007, Chabad-Lubavitch Centres had multiplied across the globe with 278 new emissaries moved out to Jewish communities in that year alone. There were 20 Chabad Houses in the states of California and Florida and 17 new campus-based centers in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East. Several centres were also recently opened in France, Mexico and Argentina. [6]

Ukrainian Jewish community leader, activist and author Baron Eduard Hodos has traced the early influence of Chabad Lubavitch. He  has highlighted the period of movement leadership by the Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe Joseph Isaac Schneerson and his run-in with Joseph Stalin, who: “… at one time had studied in Tiflis Theological Seminary and [was] versed in the issues of religion, expelled Chabad from the USSR as a fascist cult despite the fact that traditional Judaism continued to exist in Soviet territory.” [7]

9780300115314Up to the start of World War II a curious operation to spirit away the Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe from Poland took place.  He was taken from Warsaw, across Third Reich territory to neutral Holland and finally to the United States. This mysterious event occurred: “As a result of an agreement between the U.S. Department of State and the head of German military intelligence (Abwehr), Admiral Canaris Yosef Yitzchak.

The operation to transport the Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe from occupied Poland was supervised by the Colonel of Abwehr, whose father was a Jew, Ernst Bloch.” [8] It is an intriguing tale and best told by historian Bryan Mark Rigg in his book: Rescued from the Reich: How One of Hitler’s Soldiers Saved the Lubavitcher Rebbe (2006). Rigg meticulously outlines causes that led to:  “… the instigation of American Lubavitchers and some sympathetic officials in FDR’s administration, highly placed German military men—including Helmut Wohlthat, an anti-Semitic aide to Göring who felt saving the rebbe would be a good public relations move, and Maj. Ernst Bloch, who had a Jewish father—conspired to spirit the ailing rebbe from Warsaw to Riga, and then Stockholm, where he sailed for New York.” [9]

This research gives further evidence of the doctrinal influence that not only explains the Judeo-fascism present in the Chabad sect but the fallout that required a sacrifice of ordinary Jews so that their spiritual and nationalistic objectives could materialise. It seems the “Messiah” Rabbi Menachem Schneerson had philosophically and spiritually squared his conscience on the subject of the holocaust having seen it as a necessary sacrifice for a grander collective destiny. It is here that the Zionists merge with Lubavitch designs in that they were quite willing to sacrifice ordinary Jews to the Nazis in return for their State of Israel. (See Ben Hecht’s Perfidy for a detailed explanation as well as Lenni Brenner’s: 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis, a synopsis of which is available at Counterpunch).

The Tanya is the mystical “Bible” of Chabad Hasidic philosophy, the ideological concepts of which were given a thorough airing via the pen of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad Hasidism, first published in 1797 in the thick of revolutionary and masonic resurgence. It had enormous influence on successive “Rebbes” of Chabad Lubavitch but remained highly controversial to those willing to look objectively at its contents. Eduard Hodos who has been sounding the alarm on the sect for many decades calls The Tanya “the second ‘Mein Kampf.’” *

In his book Jewish Hurricane (2007) the rabbi is unequivocal, equating the Lubavtich concepts to a form of Judeo-Nazism. He states: “According to Chabad canon, developed by Shneur Zalman, God created the world solely for the Jews; Jews possess Divine soul, the goyim (gentiles) have the soul of a lowest order – animal soul; Jews are the only ones to whom we can apply the concept of Man. The other nations of the world are compared to vomiting and filth. … Tanya is the main subject of study in Chabad schools on a par with the Torah and Talmud.” [10]

Hodos, along with many others, is convinced that a Judeo-fascism is expressing itself in virulent form through Chabad Lubavitch having effectively taken over Ukrainian and elements of Russian politics after a long process of infiltration within Judaism, eventually incorporating and merging with the Russian-Zionist mafia. The Rabbi explains that “the clearly defined goal” and long-term objective: “… was to entice and make Jewish-Russian hybrids employed in the structures of real power ardent followers of Chabad, vigorously supporting their careers and promotion. In this regard Chabad were ready to sacrifice their ideological dogmas and turn a blind eye to the lack of purity of blood. In contrast, to non-Jews the issue was simple–money [bribes].”  He further mentions: “Taking into account that from the time of opening of [Russia’s] borders, the Russian society did not have a currency while members of the “Committee of 300” held substantial foreign funds which Chabad used to purchase Russian real estate. [11]

Hodos explained that during the reign of Menachem Mendel Schneerson and the period of Gorbachev’s perestroika Chabad Lubavictch was able to expand into Russia care of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster (which is known amongst top Chabadniks as the “Chernobyl miracle”) gradually insinuating itself into the “… vast majority of Jewish religious and financial structures”allowing the sect to become: “… a major force in the Jewish movement of the 20th and 21st Centuries.” [12]

In a recent interview from an online magazine Hodos opined that the power of Chabad Lubavitch cannot be overstated: “Over the past decade, the influence of Chabad cultists in the world has not only grown but also entrenched. This is the only Jewish religious sect, which, assuming the role of leader of world Jewry, climbed into world politics. Its presence greatly affected American politics. In addition, the heads of state of the former Soviet Union are listening to Chabad.” [13]

Although ostensibly opposed to Zionism theologically, they necessarily have parallel goals. Their members in the US political establishment and/or supporters past and present include: Alan Dershowitz a celebrity lawyer and academic (and well-known nemesis of Norman Finkelstein) US senators Joe Lieberman and John McCain; Sen. Carl Levin who is Chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee; one-time Homeland Security Director and civil liberties eradicator Michael Chertoff; former Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer; [14] Rahm Emanuel Senior Clinton/Obama advisor; Stuart Eizenstat, former Deputy Treasury Secretary; General Michael Mukasey; Paul Wolfowitz, PNAC document author and one of the architects of the Iraq War and lastly, another PNAC co-author, dual-nationality Rabbi Dov Zakheim.

The latter individual is an important presence in the Zionist fifth column of the United States. He was the appointed Undersecretary of Defence and Comptroller from 2001 to 2004 under the George W. Bush administration and famously linked to the Pentagon’s missing $2.6 trillion announced by Donald Rumsfeld on 10th September, 2001 conveniently lost in the chaos of 9/11 the following day. And of course, the specific section of the Pentagon that was destroyed contained the year’s budgetary information, along with the accountants, book-keepers and budget analysts, many of whom died. (We’ll have much more on Zakheim’s influence in  future posts). [15]

[16] It may go some way to explain why he and his erstwhile colleague Joe Liberman are so vociferously against the Russian government of Vladimir Putin, though in recent years Putin too has been walking a tightrope between the needs of Russia and the demands  of Judaism and its sects. Hodos believes the struggle between the Russian Oligarchs and Putin’s government is actually a struggle between Judaism and Chabad Lubavitch. The Putin-led fight between oligarchical Jews like the late Boris Berezovsky, Vladimir Gusinsky and Mihaly Khodorkovsky was not based on anti-Semitism or political motives but the “… struggle of Chabad with Jewish capital” with Putin as: “merely a tool in the fight.” He further believes: “Putin is protected from such charges [of anti-Semitism], after which the carrier ends.” [17]

Vladimir Putin has an almost impossible struggle on his hands to balance forces of extremism emerging in Russia spear-headed by Mossad and Chabad mafia. At the same time, he must field US-NATO's bid to embroil him in a new Cold War via the destabilisation of Ukraine.

Chief Rabbi and head of Chabad Lubavitch in Russia is Berel Lazar who took over from the late Adolfa Szajewicza with the Kremlin intervening in to make sure Lazar won the election. In response Lazar gushed: “Never before has any Russian or Soviet leader done so much for Jews, as Vladimir Putin. In every respect it is unprecedented. In talks with me Ariel Sharon repeatedly emphasized that the Kremlin is the greatest friend of Jews and of Israel. Now, many mayors of Russian cities, provincial heads and ministers are Jewish. This became the norm …” [18] Indeed, according to a report from the Jerusalem Post Lazar is “… essentially a Kremlin appointee who has been made to neutralize the more outspoken and politically active leaders of rival Jewish organizations.” [19] As a result, the nucleus of the Putin government comprises a significant number of Hasidic Jews and followers of Chabad. In September 2005, Lazar became a member of the Public Chamber of Russia and remains a key player in mafia led politics.

This will begin to make sense when we recall Putin’s recent turnaround from being Iran’s supporter to partial detractor after meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister and Chabad devotee Benjamin Netanyahu. Though Putin said that “…in his opinion the spread of democracy in the Middle East should be allowed to go ahead without outside influence” Netanyahu described Russia and Israel as “on the same page” over the “Iran threat” with Putin adding “Jerusalem and Moscow share “friendly ties.” [20]

We will have to see if Putin remains his own man…

Netanyahu and Russian oligarch and reputed Russian Mafiya don, Arcadi Gaydamak were busy making preparations in early 2000’s to take on the helmsman ship of Israel along with Israeli fascist Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beitenu party. The latter has mafia connections and is a strong Netanyahu supporter. It is likely he will win the post of Prime-Minister very soon and with such a complex set of influences including Zionism, Chabad and the Russian Mafia all of whom are predicated on the idealism of a “Greater Israel” and the destruction of those not in alignment with such fascist principles.

Benjamin Netanyahu

Both the Netanyahu and George W. Bush puppets with their shared values of Likud and Neo-Conservative expansionism have been frequent sycophants at Lubavitch fundraising and ritual celebrations in and around Whitehouse circles. In 2002, Netanyahu gave “an eloquent speech to some 600 friends of Chabad of the Marina at The Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel…” and after extolling the virtues of Israeli oppression of Palestinians he reminded the suited rabbis in their opulent surroundings that he was honoured to be at an event that was “dedicated to the deeds and teachings of Rabbi Menachem. M. Schneerson,” the Great Rebbe of Chabad Lubavitch supporters. [21]
Meanwhile, later in the year Bush Jr. was busy doing his part by hosting: “… a delegation of 10 leading rabbis and officials from the Lubavitch Hasidic movement at the White House…” to venerate and “…mark the 100th birthday of the late Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson..” another stalwart defender and proselytiser of the Lubavitch messianic faith while adding “…his signature to a document declaring the late Rebbe’s birthday ‘The day of education and charity.’” [22]

These displays of mutual adoration and moist-eyed reverence would all be very touching if the background to such unfettered access to political insiders was a result of genuine humanitarian concerns. Unfortunately, the reverse is true. “If the rising alliance takes power in the next election, it could push Israel toward military confrontations with Iran, Syria or Hezbollah, while extinguishing any remaining flickers of hope in Israel’s peace camp regarding the Palestinians.” [23]  This is what we are facing should Netanyahu be successful.

The ignorance surrounding the presence of Chabad Lubavitch in high-level politics, its dominance within the Jewish Diaspora and the courting of Jewish/Zionist elites should be deeply disturbing to both Jew and gentile alike.

It seems everyone is being gently lowered into a simmering extremist soup …

 


* Edward Hodos doesn’t mince his words when he talks of Chabad leaders and their activities. From The Jewish Syndrome (2002) he states: “Chabad is now the head ‘roof’ organization which built the extensive network of countless Jewish formations and patronising their activities. Today, Chabad nests are scattered throughout the territory of the former USSR. The largest and strategically important are located in Ukraine and Russia. But, if in Russia the Chabad capital is, of course, Moscow, its capital in the Ukraine is Dnepropetrovsk – hometown of Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. At this time, Chabad-Lubavitch movement has an unprecedented influence for a small ultra-Orthodox sect that has an impact not only on the microclimate in the countries of their ground-bases, but on global political and economic situation. The activities of the sect are very conspiratorial, at the same time hypocritically parading and showing off exceptional piety, religious tolerance and humility.

Unlike other members of Orthodox Judaism, Chabad cultists do not simply recognize Jesus, but express a vicious hatred. Chabad considers Christian Orthodoxy and its representatives its worst enemy. […] Chabad cultists actively oppose the process of assimilation of Jews and are fanatical fighters for the purity of blood. The main principle of fascist ideology of the sect is the following: Jews are above all, and Chabad is higher than the Jews.”

 


Notes

[1] p.185; The Rebbe’s Army: Inside the World of Chabad-Lubavitch by Sue Fishkoff, April 15, 2003 | ISBN-13: 978-0805241891. Fishkoff claims that her book is not about Chabad Lubavitch’s political involvement but of the culture and the “shlichim,” the young Luvavitch couples who act as Jewish missionaries with a view to setting up “Chabad Houses.” This book is largely irrelevant regarding an understanding of the core power structure and thus acts as a propaganda buffer highlighting the truth of “acts of kindness” within the sect as if this is the driving force of the upper hierarchy of Chabad Lubavitch as a whole, which of course it is not. With any organization that is ponerized such niceities are merely incidental to the cause.

[15] This is an extraordinary story and I urge the reader to follow up on this simply because in combination with the events of 911 it is highly suspicious not least due to the magnitude of the money “missing”. In 2001 the Pentagon managed to loose the budget for the entire U.S. government. Think about that for a moment.
