  • Elder of Ziyon
I am hesitant to write this post, but I think it is important that when religious rabbis give talks that are meant to be only heard by like-minded people, they realize that their words can go out into the world and make Jews look bad.

A prominent Israeli rabbi (whose name I will not give here) gave a speech over a year ago where he said, in effect, that what (he says) Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf was correct. According to this rabbi, Hitler in Mein Kampf has nothing against religious Jews. He only hated the assimilated Jews, the Jews who were perverting German theatre to pornography, the Jews who were behind the Communist revolution. In other words, the Jews who Hitler hated deserve to be hated..

First of all, at least the official Nazi version of Mein Kampf does not emphasize it. Hitler was clearly against all Jews and wanted them all dead. I excerpted sections of Mein Kampf recently. I could not find any distinction between religious and assimilated Jews, between communist and capitalist Jews. On the contrary, Hitler wrote things like
From time immemorial, however, the Jews have known better than any others how falsehood and calumny can be exploited. Is not their very existence founded on one great lie, namely, that they are a religious community, whereas in reality they are a race? And what a race! One of the
greatest thinkers that mankind has produced has branded the Jews for all time with a statement which is profoundly and exactly true. He called the Jew “the great master of lies.” Those who do not realize the truth of that statement, or do not wish to believe it, will never be able to lend a hand in helping truth to prevail.
 The rabbi's point is that Jews in Israel shouldn't assimilate the way they did in Germany. But his claiming that Hitler was right, and that Jews are the source of Germany's troubles, has given fuel to antisemites.

This video has been widely copied by antisemites on various video platforms and elsewhere. The rabbi is now quoted all over as proof of Jewish mendacity, that even Jews admit.

I came across it in an article at a Kuwaiti news site which mixed up the actual rabbi's name with one of the antisemites who publicized his words, but his summary of the rabbi's words are unfortunately pretty accurate:

In his book Mein Kampf Hitler touched on the subject of the reason for his hatred of the Jews extensively. Rabbi Aaron Kasparov [sic] commented on the reasons for the hatred, asserting that Hitler was right in his hatred of the Jews because, according to the rabbi, the Jews had planned the Communist revolution in Russia resulting in the liquidation of 33 million Russians. The first communist government after the revolution was composed of six Jewish members out of a total of thirteen members, not to mention that the Jews are the spiritual parents of Marxism, communism and Leninism. He added that the Jews owned seven German newspapers out of nine newspapers and were working to destroy literature, poetry and theater in Germany and to eradicate religion, faith and morality. They were the enemies of the Lord. They wanted to control Germany after Russia and to liquidate 20 million Germans.On this basis Hitler felt that he should immediately liquidate them before it was too late. One of the most important things that Rabbi Kasparov [sic] mentioned was that Hitler's book was not translated into Hebrew for long because those who forbade translation were the leftist Jews who feared the exposure of Hitler's true hatred of the Jews. He did not hate them for being Jews but for their heinous deeds and plans to control Germany. Rabbi Kasparov [sic] ended his speech by advising Jews to refrain from returning to such acts after they had gathered from the diaspora.
Of course this wasn't enough for the Arab writer:
Even the idea of ​​the atomic bomb was inspired by the Jewish physicist Einstein. He warned  US President Roosevelt of the German possession of the atomic bomb, although their nuclear research was very modest. This drew the attention of Americans to the importance of obtaining the atomic bomb before the Nazis, and the Jewish physicist Oppenheimer, who led the Los Alamos Bomb Research Laboratory, where the Americans succeeded in producing in the so-called Manhattan Project, which cost huge sums and enormous effort. Japan was the first victim of the atomic bomb. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed and hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians were killed and they suffered from nuclear radiation for a long time, although Japan was about to be defeated in World War II before being hit by atomic bombs.
Nuclear weapons are among the most powerful weapons that could destroy human civilization and destroy the human race if a nuclear war breaks out between the superpowers. Oppenheimer, the atomic bomb engineer, therefore expressed this by saying: "I am death, devastating to the worlds."
The truth of them is that Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): "They seek corruption in the land, and Allah does not love those who spoil it."
Antisemites don't need to be handed victories like this on a silver platter. The rabbi's words were inaccurate, sure, but beyond that he became a poster boy for Jew-haters who now claim that religious Jews agree with Hitler that Jews are corrupt individuals hell bent on world domination.

It is possible to speak out against assimilation and secularism and leftism among Jews without mentioning Hitler as a proof-text. The rabbi was irresponsible and his words have caused damage, and will continue to cause damage, to Jews for years to come, all because he wanted to shake up his followers.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
