The Jewish Zohar declares that the Jews are a holy people and that the world exists solely for their sake (note that Jacob is Israel, the father of the Jews):
"AND SARAH SAW THE SON OF HAGAR THE EGYPTIAN, WHOM SHE HAD BORN UNTO ABRAHAM, MAKING SPORT. R. Hiya said: 'After recording the birth of Isaac, the Scripture never mentions Ishmael by name so long as he was still in the house of Abraham: dross cannot be mentioned in the presence of gold. Hence Ishmael is referred to here as the son of Hagar the Egyptian, as it was not fitting that his name should be mentioned in the presences of Isaac.' Said R. Isaac: 'The words and Sarah saw imply that she looked at him disdainfully, as being the son not of Abraham but of Hagar the Egyptian, and, furthermore, only Sarah regarded him so, but not Abraham, as we read that THE THING WAS VERY GRIEVOUS IN ABRAHAM'S SIGHT ON ACCOUNT OF HIS SON–not the son of Hagar, but his son.' R. Simeon said: 'The Scripture really speaks in praise of Sarah. For what she saw was that he was indulging in idolatrous practices. Hence she said: Surely, this not the son of Abraham, who follows in the footsteps of Abraham, but the son of Hagar the Egyptian, who is reverting to the type of his mother. Hence: AND SHE SAID UNTO ABRAHAM: CAST OUT THIS BONDWOMAN AND HER SON; FOR THE SON OF THIS BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE HEIR WITH MY SON, EVEN WITH ISAAC.' The truth, therefore, is that she observed him worshipping idols, and performing the practices which his mother had taught him. Hence the words of Sarah, For the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir, as much as to say: I know that he will never enter the fold of the true faith and that he will have no portion with my son either in this world or in the world to come. Therefore God supported her, since He wished to keep the holy seed carefully separated, for that was the end for which He created the world, as Israel was already in His thought before the creation of the world. It was therefore that Abraham appeared in the world, so that the world could be sustained for his sake. Abraham and Isaac together upheld the world, yet they were not firmly established until Jacob came into the world. When Jacob appeared, both Abraham and Isaac became firmly established and the whole world with them. From Jacob the holy people gradually emerged into the world, and so the whole of existence became duly established according to the holy pattern. Hence God said, In all that Sarah saith unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall seed be called to thee, i.e. in Isaac and not in Ishmael."--The Zohar, Volume 1, Vayera, I, folio 118b, Soncino, London, (1933), pp. 367-368.
The exact same racist statements appear in the Talmud, and in the Torah, which states in Exodus 22:31:
"You shall be holy men to Me, therefore you shall not eat any flesh torn to pieces in the field; you shall throw it to the dogs."
"For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
"Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy."
"Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God."
"And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine."
"But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day."
"For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth."
"For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth."
"Ye shall not eat of any thing that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk."
"And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken."
Deuteronomy 28:1, 9-10, 13:
"And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:"
The hate filled Old Testament then proceeds from the racism of the Torah, as follows:
I Chronicles 16:13:
"O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones."
"Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites. For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass. And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied."
"Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives."
"And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers."
"Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude."
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance."
"I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,"
"O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen."
"For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation."
"For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure."
"But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend."
"The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen."
"Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:"
"And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken."
"Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger."
"Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses."
"And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD."
"Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD."
The Cabalistic hatred of Ishmael is also simply a repetition of the Torah, which states in Genesis 16:12:
"And [Ishmael] will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."
The Babylonian Talmud states that the Jewish god regrets having created the Ishmaelites:
"R. Hana b. Abba stated: It was said at the schoolhouse, There are four things of which the Holy One, blessed be He, repents that He had created them, and they are the following: Exile, the Chaldeans, the Ishmaelites and Evil Inclination. 'The Exile', since it is written, Now, therefore, what do I here, saith the Lord, seeing that My people is taken away for naught etc.;9 'the Chaldeans', since it is written, Behold the land of the Chaldeans—this is the people that was not;10 'the Ishmaelites', since it is written, The tents of the robbers11 prosper, and they that provoke God are secure since God brought them with His hand;12 'the Evil Inclination', since it is written, [And I will gather her that is driven away] and her that I have afflicted.13"—I. Epstein, Editor, "Sukkah 52b", The Babylonian Talmud, Volume 12, The Soncino Press, London, (1935), pp. 249-252, at 250.
The Zohar has led the Jews to stir up wars with Muslims whom the Jews claim are the Ishmaelites. The Jews are especially eager to war with the Iranians in a war which fulfill the prophecies of the Zohar and other Cabalistic works, as I explained in my blog of 27 July 2009:
and in my blog of 19 August 2006:
However, this prophecy/instruction to the Jews, was first iterated in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 38:1-5:
"1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: 5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:"
The Cabalah and Talmud did not arise in a vacuum. Of the Torah, Talmud and Cabalah, the Talmud is the least murderous and racist. The Torah is openly genocidal, as is the Cabalah which is based upon the Torah and which frequently cites the Torah.
