The president of the Conference of European Rabbis, Pinchas Goldschmidt, called upon Spain to ask for forgiveness from the Jewish people for their expulsion in 1492 instead of trying to attract Israelis with the offer to give the (Spanish) nationality to all those who can prove their Sephardic origin. 

In an op-ed published in the online paper “Ynet”, Goldschmidt also demanded that all those who were forced to convert should be given the opportunity to look in historical archives in order to find their Jewish ancestry.

The author, who is also the great rabbi of Moscow, "In some places like Mallorca, the descendants of the <Marranos> (Jewish converts) still constitute a differentiated group called <Chuetas>, and they live in an environment which, according to a 2008 poll by Pew Global Attitudes, is contrary to Jews”.

In line with this argument, Goldschmidt emphasized that "those descending from Jews who were forced to convert must be given the right to discover their links with their ancestors the same way as many children who were hiding in monasteries during the holocaust and those Jews forced to assimilate in the USSR were also given”.

"And I also believe that the Jewish people deserve at last an apology. The Spanish government did not apologize to Jews so far. The king missed a great opportunity (to do so) during his visit to a synagogue in 1992”, he also added.

"Even the Portuguese government apologized some years ago”, he added as comparison. He sees the gesture of Spain of giving the citizenship to those who can prove their Sephardic ancestry as “having com a bit late, but nevertheless worthy of praise”.

Goldschmidt suggested that the Spanish government should create a genealogic institute to help Jews to find their Spanish roots and to introduce Jewish studies into the school agenda.

And he also asked for old synagogues being now used as museums and churches to be assigned again to Jewish prayers in order to “amend historical mistakes”.

"the point is not the restitution of property, which is something Spanish authorities could be scared of, the same way as Turkish authorities are scared of having to acknowledge the Armenian genocide. The point is mainly that of historical and moral justice”, he added.

Update: Muslims are now demanding Spanish nationality on the same basis as Jews

so, the mask is off. Jews should apologize for helping muslims to take over Spain for 8 centuries.

Jews do not belong in europe any more than muslems do.Europeans know this but are afraid to talk about it because it makes their brains hurt.The jews are evil wandering nobodies that have conned alot of people for centuries.Read the talmud,read the koran,wake up and throw them out of europe.I doubt the europeans will do anything though.Just like the dodos.

Pushy Jews. Well wasn't everyone an atheist before any religion came along? Atheists could argue they were repressed by religion and demand compensation and the return of all lands where religious institutions have been built. Just saying. Everybody's a victim and demands compensation from the State. What a crock.

Spain has nothing to apologise for. Jews deserved to be kicked out. They sided with muslims during their invasion. Jews cannot be trusted. Notice how Goldschmidt talks about the holocaust. This is to try and make Spaniards go on a guilt trip for something that had nothing to do with them. http://codoh.com

Indeed, it does have the makings of a lucrative extortion racket in many ways: the rabbis deciding which jews are 'entitled' to claim for this Spanish nationality and 'right' of residency will no doubt require some fee for all their supposed 'investigatory work' and, eventually, this 'right of residence' will in all likelihood be followed by demands for 'financial restitution'. Also, it is obvious that European countries presently suffering the economic. social and legal effects of being in the totalitarian EU, are prime targets for some financial largesse to 'encourage' them to grant these unjustified nationality claims. On the other side of the coin, however, European countries seem entirely unwilling to offer residency/nationality to their own peoples who, historically, were disfranchised: on the site of The Occidental Observer, there is an article mentioning only peripherally that a community of Swedes were sent to the Ukraine in the mid-18th century (Sweden and Russia did have historical ties) and now, centuries later, they have applied, as a Swedish community still living and preserving their Swedish culture and language, for admission to Sweden. The Swedish Migration Board, so eager to plague Sweden with Somalis, Afghans, Iraquis, etc, has denied their request. Also, the Spanish case is not an isolated one: Germany, and Austria, have also actively sought (probably as a result of behind-the-scenes lobbying by Jewish groups in their own countries) to offer Jews the 'right' of 'resettlement' in their countries.

Notice the bit where the rabbi calls for 'introducing Jewish studies' into the school agenda, same as the moslems and an opportunity to spread the notion of 'collective guilt' --- a jewish concept, not a Christian one, the latter concerned with an individual's conscience and salvation while the former is highly ethnic rather than theological.

On that note, it's noticeable that the 'counter-jihad' is carefully setting the scene for connecting Islam with Christianity (as in the former being supposedly a form of Arian or Nestorian heresy of Christianity). This is a false link which jihadwatch did a few years ago and that GoV has now latched onto. Interesting how such groups faithfully refer to the "judeo-christian" West yet avoid commenting on the Talmud and how its precepts were taken into Islam by Jewish converts (including former rabbis). There are two reasons why Jews are able to pursue their agenda with so little resistance from their 'host' societies and countries: the persecution storyline is grossly one-sided and lacking in factual input and the astonishing ignorance even by Christian clergy over Judaic beliefs which are manifested in the Talmud. This website and CZ have admirably sought to bring some balance to the first but, without understanding the ideology/theology, Western society will always remain a hostage to fate, with Jews claiming that their own actions are only always a response to the ingrained 'anti-semitism' of Western peoples. It is knowledge of what Judaism teaches and inculcates which truly puts the issue into proper perspective.

Other books have made the claim that Islam was originally a deviant version of Christianity too, not just the one written by Robert Spencer, for example. I found it quite persuasive. Is there any substantive critique of this line of thinking that you know of? What are good sources of information about Judaic ideology?

Martel said...

Culture of Critique and A People that shall dwell alone by Kevin Macdonald explore this topic from a evolutionary perspective but its a good introduction into the aspects of Judaic theology which undoubtedly foster ethnic or religious tensions. It also sheds new light on historical conflicts, of the many attempts Germans made to solve these conflicts by challenging Jewish ethnocentrism decades before these issues escalated, and they often did so compassionately and reasonably. The Germans had legitimate grievances, and so did the Jews. But, we always have to hear about this irrational and inexplicable anti-Semitism, as if the European people were under the spell of some demon which was casted out by the victory of the allies in world war two. Reality was quite different, as it has been everywhere Jews where lived among individualistic cultures.

I've read those. I was thinking of serious, outsider analysis of Judaic ideology similar to Spencer's analysis of Islamic ideology.

Why Jews Welcome Muslims.

Kevin McDonalds approach is more sociological and therefore quite 'modern' and harder for them to criticise. For him its all about group behaviour. He is in the ADLs top ten list of haters but l haven't seen a well crafted rebuttal of his work anywhere - he is more ignored. Generally they wont engage in debate with someone like him because they will lose and they know it. They will argue with you on an obscure forum such as this but never before a wider audience. And given that they control the media there is no chance of that ever happening.

Jewish Professor Ariel Toaffs study concluded that it is probably true that Christian children were sacrificed (or sold into slavery) - that the fear of jews by the European peasntry was well founded. Jews have had a long association with slavery dating from Roman times.all the way through to recently. Arron Lopez is described in the Jewish Encyclopedia in glowing terms as the 'merchant prince of New York'- the entry doesn't mention that he owned ships that transported black slaves to the new world and that he was heavily involved in the slave trade. Even now there are thousands of East European white women sex slaves in lsrael - the figure cited in 2003 by an lsraeli journalist was 20,000.
Don't wait for the tribe to apologise - they never will. They will obfuscate, deny and accuse but they will never apologise- and in the end they will.take you down - they control the white countries now

Hey yous all are so not cool. This is dicrimination and why muslims? You jelous of it being the second biggest world religion. And you all go against all muslims. I have a muslim friends and they are not forcing me to convert. You never had a friend as a muslim that is why you don't understand.
Lots of atheists have converted freely to islam and they are the same as I always known them but just with a bit of more praying. Get used to it but this location is not cool. Not being bad or anything but I think you just want to pick on things that are harmless so that you don't have to get in trouble afterwards. You want people to agree with you because you must have run out of ideas and feel so lonely you get others to join you and slag off people you don't even know about because not all muslims are the same as in the media cause it captres the uneducated ones and for peoples pleasure. Get on with your lives most of you don't even know what's going on really in the world. Media seems your only source. The real truth is with the witnesses and they are everywhere where you don't look to find. Yous are filling your lives with lies. Once you find out the truth even you won't laugh,you'll feel stupid. I'm a christian but after seeing this page I feel like converting to islam,actually I will. I will look up more about them. PS I think yous are amazing at spreading islam. It moves me the way yous, treat them. I feel like yous are muslims showing everyone how some people treat yous. Islam must be an amazing religion to tolerate atheists. Thank you for changing my life !!!!!!!!!!
