The Truth about Judaism and Zionism

By OmarKN


KEYWORDS: Judaism, Israel, Antisemitism, Apartheid, Colonialism, Zionism, Jewish supremacism, Jewishness, Israeli & Jewish tribalism,

1. Intro


This issue is also part of the topic of “the trajectory of religions in human history”.20 Especially regarding Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

We entitled this text ”The truth about Judaism and Zionism”, because it seems that very few people, including Jews themselves know about these things.

Here are presented some of our observations regarding Judaism, Jewishness And Zionism, also Antisemitism and the Holocaust.21

This presentation is the result of our long-time research, reinforced by what Rabbi J. Shapiro, Gilad Atzmon, Israel Shahak and others have found out. Some educated Jews know these topics very well.

This study is supported by the scriptural facts from the Bible - by Musa (s.a.) and confirmed by the quranic message - brought by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ . Jews are called in the Quran { alladhīna hādū }: those who practice Judaism.17

1.2 Lessons from The Quranic Revelation

Allah (swt) says in the Quran:


{ O Children of Israel, remember My favour which I have bestowed upon you and fulfil My covenant (upon you) that I will fulfil your covenant (from Me), and be afraid of (only) Me. }

So clearly, the condition of receiving the grace of God is keeping to the covenant from God.

1.3 Promise and Threat To the Jews

God speaks in the Bible:

”Now therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Exodus 19:5 (KJV)

And if ye walk contrary unto Me, and will not hearken unto Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
Leviticus 26:21 (KJV)

”And The Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
Deuteronomy 28:68 (KJV) (in the books of Moses - Musa pbuh)

1.4 Lessons from History

The process of secularism and the emancipation of Jews - which has to be understood from the viewpoint of “the trajectory of religions in human history,” started around the mid-to-late 19th century and introduced these very negative developments:

The purpose of Zionism was NOT to fight antisemitism, it only was a secular, nationalist reaction to it.

Zionists use what they call 'antisemitism', to deflect from the injustices and oppression which they are wielding and to mute any criticism. But they will not succeed, because every system built on injustice and repression will decay and will be replaced with what is better.

1.5 Questions to Pose

• What is Jewish secular identity?
• Who is a Jew?
• Where does it lead? 1
• Why are the Israelis and their state so racist?

1.6 Who is a Jew?

A Jew is but someone who believes in the covenant given to Moses (a.s.) on Mount Sinai, including the condition to fulfil the convenant.

A Jew is not someone who has no faith in G-d and who doesn't care about the LAW given to the Israelites, or who thinks his Jewishness can be reduced to eating chicken soup and/ or believing in the Holocaust, as if it where a new religion.

1.7 Israel & Zionism

Israel & Zionism were founded on the transition of Jewish identity into a national identity. Gilad Atzmon

Israel declares itself as a Jewish state, but it is not based on the Jewish religion, although religious Jewish affiliations have increased in recent years. (Settlers)

Israel is an ethnocracy - it is neither a theocracy nor a democracy, it is the rule of an ethnicity.2

It is Jewish tribalism - not the religion of Judaism - that drives Jewish politics, whether in Israel or outside of Israel.

We must not divert our attention from the real issues

1.8 Muslims: Zionism & Judaism

A reminder that Muslims are NOT against Jews in general, as they are from the 'People of the Book', but only against rabid Zionists/ Jewish supremacists, who actively uphold the oppression against Palestinians.16

2. Definitions

2.1 Antisemitism

Hostility to - or prejudice against - Jews. (common definition)

The term Antisemitism is frequently misused to stifle public debate of the status-quo in Israel.

It is misused against those who criticise Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, or the occupation of Palestinian lands, or the systematic harassment of Palestinians, or the collective punishment of Palestinians etc.9

2.2 Apartheid

Apartheid is a misleading concept, because Apartheid is an exploitative racist system. But Israel does not want to exploit the Palestinians, it wants them out.

2.3 Colonialism

Also colonialism is a misleading concept. Settler colony - mother country, but there is no mother country.

2.4 The Holocaust

The Holocaust is received, as if it where a new religion. In Israel if ≈ 19% regard themselves as believing, practicing Jews, so their most important identity is faith in God, for 75% of the people the most important identity is believing, commemorating the Holocaust. It is exploited for financial and political gain.18

2.5 Zionism

Zionism is a superficial, even misleading description. Instead use: Jewish supremacism (see below: Explanations)

2.6 Israeli & Jewish Tribalism

Basically, we have here the phenomenon of a tribe or the ethnic group, which separates from other ethnicities and rules over the other.

2.7 Judaism

In traditional Judaism if wars had to be fought, they were won by following the Holy Law and by the will of God, nothing else. "There is no shame at giving in to an oppressor, (and) according to the Torah that is the way to remain safe."3 Shapiro

The Judaism of hundreds of years ago, which is in clear opposition to the Zionist project, has probably retained much of the original tradition of the divine message. However, because of the “the trajectory of religions in human history,” or the distancing from the origin of revelation, Judaism has been exposed to all kinds of attacks and falsifications.22

This is a result of the decadence of Judaism, the religion of Jews, which was rectified by the advent of Prophet Jesus (peace and blessings upon him) 2000 years ago, and again rectified by the message of Islam, through Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him) over 1400 years ago.4

3. More Explanations

3.1 Judaism - Moses (pbuh)

Judaism is neither a nationalist thing, nor a race; Judaism is a religion.
The Jews of Judaism had purely spiritual aspirations.

”We are only a nation or people because of our religion”. (A Jewish scholar from the 9th century)

The religion defines them as Jews. The Jews had no national aspirations. Shapiro

Zionism absorbed the Antisemitism of the Antisemites and had the same kind of disdain for their fellow Jews, there are many witness accounts from their own writings which prove this.5

3.2 Zionists and Zionism

Zionists created Zionism to extinguish the Jewishness of the Jew. They wanted to create a militaristic Jew.

Zionists created Zionism to destroy our values, i.e. the values of the Torah, [of the principle of peaceful engagement - except if the religion as such is attacked and denigrated.] Shapiro

Zionists convinced the Jews that they are a nation just like the French and the Spanish. Rabbi J. Shapiro: “The existence of a Jewish state is an attack on my religion. The Zionists stole my identity.” 8

Zionists said they wanted to be productive (something new for the Jews), to be masculine is a beautiful thing.6 Gilad Atzmon

One problem with Zionism is that it was invaded by this messy notion of Jewishness, this confusion of Israel. What did this new Jewish identity take from Judaism? Gilad Atzmon [Only superficiality, definitely not adherence to the roots of the religion!]

They transformed Judaic 'chosenness', which is actually a moral burden, into a form of tribalism and Jewish supremacy - into this confusion that we are born 'chosen', rather than that we have to earn, to merit being chosen. Gilad Atzmon

There have been in history a lot of instances of identity theft, the problem we are dealing with is not Judaism, it is Jewishness or Jewish secularism, [which is an contradiction in terms]. [okn ]of course]esp. when it comes to politics, The most dangerous forces in Israel now are Judaic driven [the decadent version, Kock, like Desh/ ISIS] He asks: Are the still Judaic? Gilad Atzmon

3.3 Jewishness

Jewishness is not some kind of identity. Jewishness [in its authentic term] is a religion. What he hates with his (pointing to GA) Jewishness, I hate too, but that's not real Jewishness. Rabbi J. Shapiro

Those people who throw away their Jewishness, because they were led to believe it is some kind of identity. If that were Jewishness, I would be a self-hating Jew too. But that's not what I call a Jew. That's not what a Jew is.

What he hates with his Jewishness, I hate, too.

4. A Closer Look at Zionism

This part is exclusively from Rabbi J. Shapiro's expositions. 8 + 14

4.1 Zionist tampering with heritage (tradition) of Judaism

There is the example of the revolt of Jews against the Roman occupier. A tactic clearly forbidden by the core tenets of Judaism, never to attack the nations.
Bar-Kochba It is now turned into an example of military bravery by Zionism. Rabbi Kook was one of the first to posit this anti-Judaic idea.15

4.2 Centralization

Centralization means that contrary to other states, where the state has to serve its people, for Israel it's the other way round: the Jews have to serve Israel, and not only the Jews living there, but the Jews in the whole world. The problem with this policy can be seen with conversions. If someone wants to become a Jew, to what does he convert to?

4.3 ’Nowhere to Go’

The claim that Jews have ’nowhere to go’ stems from an idea of Blackstone in the US, all these are originally Christian Evangelical ideas, which the Zionists took from them. They were not original at all!
Rather old ideas from about 150 years ago.

4.4 Why Do Many Jews Support Israel?

Why do so many Jews support Israel, with very few Jews knowing about the facts of above exposition.

It is because of the conflation between Israel and Judaism is so axiomatic7 all over, very strong.

4.5 Why Do Evangelical Christians Support Israel?

The believe that not until all Jews are gathered in Israel, Christ will not come back. They follow Israel blindly. That way they can be and are used by the Zionists.

4.6 A Shift in Zionism

In 1977 with M. Begin coming to power there was a shift to the right in Zionism: Whereas before it was an idea about land and productiveness, from now on it became a policy of fear mongering. They said and still say things like:

“Israel is the only thing standing between the Jewish people and a new Holocaust.”

“Support us now, because the Antisemites will kill us.” As if Hitler is around the corner and Hitler is everybody.

Every Israeli town has a Holocaust museum, Onstead of learning about the Jewish heritage, people get to learn about the ’Jewish identity:’ You are a Holocaust victim!

This is very much in line with the founder of Zionism Theodor Herzl who said:

“A Jew is he who the Antisemites hate.” From which follows logically that:

Without Antisemitism there would be no Jews!

The truth is that Israel is getting Jews into hot water along the road.

So Israel is not the state of the Jewish people! Jews live all over the globe! Stop being the Vatican - give up this claim.

4.6 When You Meet a Zionist

If you ever meet a Zionist as him this: “What makes Israel a Jewish state?” “How did it become a Jewish state?” It is a fiction, it's only a claim.

This way Zionism will be defeat without 1 victim.

Instead call it Herzlstan or something like that.

Many people support it because they are scared not to. Herzl and the Zionist feed people with slogans and flags, because people will die for a flag.

Israel has nothing to do with the Jewish people!

5. Preparing a Solution for the Israel Problem

5.1. How to characterize the state of Israel:

It is Jewish identity politics that drives the Jewish state.

Jewish identity politics is another expression for the idea that a certain group or ethnicity of people have rights of supremacy.

5.2 One State for All Inhabitants

Creating new conditions for justice and peace.

Such conditions would be

5.3 For a Solution of the Israel Problem

For a solution of the Israel problem, the above points have to be citically received, understood and digested by the Israeli public and even more so by the Israeli leadership.

Palestinians should search for better strategies than those which were not successful in the past with - the aim to reduce hatred - even if this is very difficult inface of settler cruelty and greediness.

We have to see the actions of individuals apart fom the individual itself.

The Bible is not a land registery.

6. A Message To the Israeli Leadership

Zionism has highjacked Judaism. Shapiro

From his speech to the Israeli leadership and the people:14

My fellow Israelis, citizens of the United States, China, allover the world!
We need your help!
We made a terrible mistake!
In 1948 we thought that we would save the Jews, we would redeem19 them. It didn't work out that way. 

More Jews that we thought would be safe in Israel, we thought there would be no antisemitism, yet more Jews were killed in Israel than everywhere else in the world 29.03 since 1948.
Jews if you want to be safe come to America.
Nothing worked out. We thought the Arabs would love us. They don't. They did think that. …
It was a terrible mistake!
But I don't know what to do. We need your help!
because figuring out what the problem is, is half of the solution.
At least let us have the first if?
[A solution is not impossible. Many thought the foundation of the state of Israel was impossible but it happened anyway.]
We need somehow to safely and strategically get rid of this whole state of Israel.
Maybe the Messiah is the one one that could do it.
But until then we need to get our heads together and find a solution,…
and if you tell me it's impossible I'd like to invoke our founding father Theodore Herzl who said: ’If you will it, it is no dream.’
That applies to the problem that we have now. …

Being anti Israeli and being Anti Semitic are two completely different things.12

  1. There are serious contemporary problems, such as: Increasing repression against those who have being living in those lands: The Palestinians.

    Increasingly children are being arrested:


    Or this woman:


    Or think about this fact:
    Many British Jews and American Jews served as volunteers in the war on Gaza in 2014, compare the media attention of it to European Muslims fighting for Desh.

    see for example:
    Baroness Warsi: British volunteers in IDF should be prosecuted

  2. an ethnicity is a category of people who identify with each other based on similarities such as common ancestry, language, society, culture or nation. Ethnicity is usually an inherited status based on the society in which one lives.(Wikipedia)

  3. Nobody would feel ashamed by being attacked by a wild animal. “Going down while fighting like a man, but the enemies were worse than animals.” Zionists came: “Go down fighting.” Masada means nothing to the Jewish people until the Zionists made it to something. Read the Masada myth - it’s a phantasy. The didn’t want the humility of the Jews. Character values are preferred and what we call in yiddish: Edelkeit - ( adāb )

  4. Even if the earlier traditions or religions may not lose all of their salvific power, they however lost most of it, leaving Islam as the tradition closest to the way of justice, peace and felicity. (salvific: having the intent or power to save or redeem. Merriam-Webster)

  5. They set out to transform the Jews, which they considered backwards.

  6. but traditional Jewish Thora religion did never embark on genocidal wars, always disallowed the Jews of being the oppressors.

  7. self-evident or unquestionable

  8. ”The criminalization of political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the west.” Glenn Greenwald 19.7.2017

  9. Example Mexico: After Netanyahu declared he would help Trump to construct ’the wall’, Antisemitism in Mexico exploded, which forced the chief rabbi of that country to write a protest letter the Israeli leader.

  10. Mr. Etler, a former professor of Anthropology at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California, suggested that Zionism is the version of this core settler ideology that was used by the Israelis against the Palestinians, which helps to explain the Zionist orientation of the United States.

    “As a settler state the US, like other Anglo-settler states, including Israel, has a core ideology of manifest destiny, racial and ethnic oppression, and outright genocide against the indigenous people they encounter and oust during their colonial conquests. This core settler ideology is indistinguishable from Zionism and helps to explain the Zionist orientation of the US and its allies.” he said.

  11. - expired link (before 2023-02-01) www.presstv.com, Quote by Danny Sanderson, 2017

    Being anti Israeli and being Anti Semitic are two completely different things. Just because the Israeli Government wants to hijack the religion so that nobody will question their actions for 'fear' of the dreaded anti Semitic label, doesn't make it so.

    Many many Jews are as horrified by what Israel is doing in their name as the rest of us. Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism, it's a vile political ideology that should have been stamped out decades ago.

  12. The Norway Shooter’s Zionist Streak

    Anders Breivik’s embrace of Israel is the latest sign of a shift among reactionaries in Europe—with fascism and Zionism going hand in hand, fueled by Islamophobia, says Michelle Goldberg.

    Coming from a Scandinavian fascist, this is a remarkable sentiment. The European far right has long been rooted in Nazism, and for decades, anti-Semitism was its hallmark. But Breivik’s embrace of Israel, far from being unique, is just the latest sign of a great shift among the continent's reactionaries. Indeed, in European politics, fascism and an aggressive sort of Zionism increasingly go together.

    Shimon Bar-Kokhba was the leader of the Jewish revolt against Rome between 132 and 135 C.E.

    See also:

    Ancient Jewish History: The Great Revolt (66 - 70 CE)

    At the beginning of the Common Era, a new group arose among the Jews: the Zealots (in Hebrew, Ka-na-im). These anti-Roman rebels were active for more than six decades, and later instigated the Great Revolt. Their most basic belief was that all means were justified to attain political and religious liberty…

    The highly embittered [Jewish] refugees who succeeded in escaping the Galilean massacres fled to the last major Jewish stronghold—Jerusalem. There, they killed anyone in the Jewish leadership who was not as radical as they. Thus, all the more moderate Jewish leaders who headed the Jewish government at the revolt's beginning in 66 were dead by 68—and not one died at the hands of a Roman. All were killed by fellow Jews…

    It is estimated that as many as one million Jews died in the Great Revolt against Rome.

    Or acc. to Ibn Jarīj, the Jews are called Yahūd (a term derived from hāda ) because they said to God: ”Truly we return (hudnā ) to You.”

    The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering - Norman Finkelstein

    Leaders of America's Jewish community were delighted that Israel was now deemed a major strategic asset and, Finkelstein contends, exploited the Holocaust to enhance this newfound status. Their subsequent interpretations of the tragedy are often at variance with actual historical events and are employed to deflect any criticism of Israel and its supporters. Recalling Holocaust fraudsters such as Jerzy Kosinski and Binjamin Wilkomirski, as well as the demagogic constructions of writers like Daniel Goldhagen, Finkelstein contends that the main danger posed to the memory of Nazism's victims comes not from the distortions of Holocaust deniers but from prominent, self-proclaimed guardians of Holocaust memory.


    The Holocaust Industry - Interview with Norman Finkelstein (2002) @YT, 2002

  18. redeem: save (someone) from sin, error, or evil

  19. “the trajectory of religions in human history”: Judaism was once the authentic religion with God, revealed to prophet Musa (pbuh), then it was abrogated with the advent of Prophet `Isa (Jesus pbuh). Christianity in turn was abrogated with the message of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ , i.e. Islam. This was providentially necessary in order to guarantee the correctness and purity of the eternal message from God.

    Allah swt says about the Quran:

    { And this is a Book which We have sent down, bringing blessings, and confirming (the revelations) which came before it…} 6:92

    {confirming}: Those parts of the scriptures and laws which were still true and correct.

  20. To all those worried about the reception of the Holocaust, we at Livingislam.org do not ignore or deny the crimes of the Holocaust.

    However we are not blind to the fact that there are those who misuse the memory of the killed in the Holocaust, by using it for their political, sectarian agenda. (see for ex. footnote 18)

  21. See Quran, chapter 2
